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!

    If you're going to intentionally walk someone there at the end who's been dragging out the at-bat with fouls, why not just bean the hell out of 'em?

  2. 1. He was not intentionally walked. This isn't Little League. 2. Stop encouraging assault on baseball players! We are less savage than NFL fans.
