I didn't get to see much of the game tonight. My softball playoffs took longer than expected so I didn't really get to watch until the 7th inning or so. Not much to say.
- Looks like CC pitched another beauty. He's rolling now, picking up his league leading 16th win. I can see him winning 20 easy.
- Phil Hughes is one nasty RP. I wonder if there will be a lot of Hughes to the bullpen/rotation talk after the season like there was with Joba. I've said it before, I'll say it again. Hughes is, and will always be, a better pitcher than Joba. The Yankees would be stupid to leave Hughes in the pen.
- The offense came alive in a big way in the 9th, scoring 7 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks. All 7 of the hits were singles. It was pretty fun to watch the line keep moving. Great inning.
And that's all I got. The team is hot right now, winners of their last 6. Their lead in the East is up to 7.5 games with 29 or so to play. If they go .500 the rest of the way, they'll finish with 98-99 wins. It's still a little early to punch that postseason ticket, but the odds are very high that there will be October baseball in the Bronx. The team is now off to Toronto. I'll going up there in the morning to hound for some autographs. I'm also going to hit up the Friday and Saturday games. I'm definitely looking forward to it. Hopefully there are no speeding tickets in my future. Knock on wood.
Peace, love and Pinstripes,
