I’m bringing you a love that’s true, so get ready, so get ready. I’m gonna try to make you love me too, so get ready, so get ready. Get ready ’cause here I come. -Temptations
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Now listen, I hate the Yankees as much as the next guy, probably more so. I want them dead! I want their families dead! I want the house that juice built burned to the ground! All of it. But still. But still, here they come. Here they come with a vengeance. Believe it or not, here they come with pitching. You know what the man said. The man said, pitching wins championships. The man said, you’re only as good as your next starter. That’s what the man said. So wont you listen to what the man said.
I’ve said in the past, as presently constituted, this Yankees pitching staff will not win a godammed thing. Not a godammed thing. I still believe that. I do not like Joba Chamberlain. I do not like Andy Pettitte. I do not like Sergio Mitre. I do not like that bullpen. I do not like them in a house. I do not like them with a mouse. I do not like them here or there. I do not like them anywhere.
As much as I do not like them, they’re getting it done. Last night, Hideki Matsui hit it high. Last night, Hideki Matsui hit it long. Last night, Hideki Matsui gave us a thrilla from Godzilla. The Sayonara Kid’s walkoff homer in the ninth inning off Baltimore’s Jim Johnson gave the Yankees their third straight 2-1 victory. Big deal you say? Who cares you say? So what you say? I’ll tell you so what.
I’ll tell you the Bombers bombed Detroit by the same score on both Saturday and Sunday. I’ll tell you it’s only the fifth time that the Yankees have won three consecutive games while scoring no more than two runs in each game. Ever. I’ll tell you the only other times they did such a thing was 1906, 1964, 1968 and 1991. I’ll tell you they did it then how they’re doing it now. They did it with pitching. Here come the Yankees, saddle your ponies you bet!
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
