Was That Some Spirit the Yankees Just Showed?

The Yankees lost in 11 last night, after the Red Sox proved they are a slightly more-cohesive team and took the game 8-7 in extras. Mike Napoli was basically the burr in C.C. Sabathia's birthday suit, earning many of the runs with his magic bat. The Yankees did try, quite hard. Case in point, my Brett Brett:

At the top of the 7th, Gardner had a 10-minute, 15-pitch AB which resulted in a walk. Not only was this SUPER FREAKING awesome, but he was covered top-to-bottom in dirt, which made it quite possibly the most adorable at bat of the series.

Dirt in the skirt, Brett! (Image/Screenshot, don't sue me, MLB)


The Yankees are at Rangers for the next four days then head home, where my girl, Dina, and I will see them on Friday night. Then, on Sunday, my darling office friend, Ruth, and I will be getting to the Stadium at the crack of dawn for our Matsui bobbleheads and chance to glimpse his radiant glory once more on the field at Yankee Stadium.

Have a great week, everyone!

This Also Happened at the ASG

But I missed it because I went to bed after Mo crushed the opposition in the bottom of the 8th:

Prince Fielder gets a triple and he gets it good.

Mariano likes.

ASG Recap: He's My Boy!

Mariano shut down the All Star Game last night. Well, duh! Of course he did.

Mo does his thing, you watch in awe (Image/Wikipedia?)


Even though he came in for the bottom of the 8th, not the 9th, his appearance, subsequent standing ovation from every human being within a five mile radius for CitiField and 16-pitch 1-2-3 inning was just another game for Mariano freakin' Rivera.

Texas' Joe Nathan came in to close out the game for the AL (whatever, does HE not know who Mariano Rivera is?) and now home field advantage for the World Series lies with the AL...if only the Yankees had a shot in hell.

There's no baseball tonight, so I'm thinking about watching A League of Their Own in bed and painting my nails white with navy Pinstripes. We've gotta get the momentum going for the second half.

Stay cool, sweet readers!
