What a way to start a road trip – a brilliant, 10-strikeout performance by CC… a two-homer, five RBI night for Matsui…a 1-2-3 outing for Bruney…and an 11-1 win over the Mariners. I came home from my Thursday night writer’s workshop and was thrilled when I sat down to watch the tape of the game. Now I feel I must express my joy.
(OK, she looks pregnant in that photo and I’m not, but you get the point. I’m really, really happy.)
I was glad to see Jeter playing shortstop and hitting one out. No sign of a limp that I could detect. I hope A-Rod’s “contusion” is coming along. And I hope Mo’s cranky shoulder is acting less cranky. But most of all, I hope the Yankees have saved some of their offensive output for this weekend when Mitre/Gaudin will be on the mound. The thought of those games might give me nightmares, so instead I’ll concentrate on tomorrow and Pettitte’s start.
Sweet dreams! Or do I mean sweep dreams?
