Glad the Yankees won. I did not expect an easy game against Pedro Martinez - I figured the Yanks would have to beat the Phillies' bullpen in order to win - and he really was great for six innings. But A.J. Burnett was better, and Pedro stayed in a little too long.
Before the game, I wrote something on Pedro's wacky presser the other day. I think he's a real character. The funniest thing about his press conference was that he went into this whole tangent about the Zimmer fight at Yankee Stadium, even though it was at Fenway Park!
I'll have more to say on the game tomorrow. But wanted to mention the Jay-Z/Alicia Keys song. As I noted the other day, the Yankees and Phillies are both big fans. I told Squawker Jon that if he wanted to be a true Yankee fan this week, he'd have to learn to freestyle rap!
