While I am happy that Jorge Posada hit that homer (albeit a controversial one) to win yesterday's game, it shouldn't have come to that.
The fact that the Yanks nearly lost to Carl Bleeping Pavano yesterday was an unfortunate state of affairs, to say the least. I did call it, though. Yes, American Idle came through with the type of performance we never saw in the Bronx. But doesn't every ex-Yankee in recent years?
Speaking of which, I'm expecting at least one homer from Jason Giambi tonight (Squawker Jon and I are supposed to go the game, weather permitting.)
Why couldn't the Yankees just repeatedly bunt on Pavano yesterday, and hope that he would pull something? That would have been funny.
As for Posada's homer, it seems that the Yankees are asking for trouble with having the fans so close to the outfield wall in this new park. It worked out this time, but what happens when, say, a Red Sox fan interferes with a Yankee trying to catch a ball?
I'm still liking A.J. Burnett, even if he was a little wild yesterday. And Jonathan Albaladejo continues to impress.
On the other hand, I'm still not impressed by all those empty seats. To call that 43,000 attendance, as the Yankees claimed yesterday, is just laughable. And I'm expecting a a lot less tonight.
