I am soooo glad the Yankees are done with that Toronto series. Those games were painful to watch, even if the Yankees did win two of them. The games were sluggish, slow, and sloggy. I literally fell asleep watching yesterday's game, it took so long!
So why did the games have such a slow pace? Was it the sloppy defensive plays? The bad pitching? I don't get it.
In other news, with today's day-night doubleheader, it looks like the day Derek Jeter will break Lou Gehrig's all-time Yankee hits record. And several Squawker readers will be in the ballpark today to see it! How cool.
It really is an amazing achievement that Jeter is going to get that record, giving all the baseball immortals who have put on the pinstripes. The fact that Jeter already has more hits than Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Joe DiMaggio boggles the mind. And now he's about to beat Lou Gehrig.
Jeter is going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. He will get his number retired, and have a monument to him in Monument Park one day. But breaking the record shouldn't make him MVP, though. Sorry.
On another note, what ever happened to the post-Toronto dressing up the rookies event? Are they not doing it this year?
