Before we get into the nitty gritty of today’s huge comeback win, I’d like to share with you exactly what we Yankee fans who are forced to listen to their radio broadcasts have to deal with 162 time per year.
Quote of the day from the lovely Suzyn Waldman:
“The other day I was introduced to this thing called YouTube, you know, on Internet.”
Now, to the game. The first 8 innings of the game where wholly disappointing. The bats were asleep, the pen disappointed and Joe’s quick hook nearly cost the Yanks the game.
Then, in the 9th, with the Yanks trailing 6–2, this is what happened:
I can hear Frank singing in the stadium all the way down on 30th Street. Great, great, unbelievable win for the Yanks, and a huge boost going into the weekend series with the Sox.
Before we get too giddy, there is something to be alarmed about in this game. Torre’s quick hook for Rasner was completely unnecessary, and could’ve and probably should’ve cost the Yanks this game. Rasner was in no trouble when Joe yanked him with 1 out in the top of the fifth. He’d only thrown 81 pitches and given up 4 hits, 1 walk, 1 run and struck out 3. I’m not sure what the logic was, there were lefties coming up, but you have to let the starters go deeper into the game when they’re pitching well.
Player of the Game: That Alex guy.
