FIFTY THOUSAND MOONS

I sensed trouble when our 4 run opening burst wasn't quite enough. It is as though we built a wall, but it wasn't high enough. Not sturdy enough. Like the little pig who built his house, not of brick, but of stick.
Guns were firing. McCann with a two out blow that set us on the way, dangerously dancing around the 18 wheeler headed our way had we left Jacoby and Gardy on base without advancing, or scoring, either one of them.
Drew was a monster. Best game of his Yankee career. Maybe he was responding to the Chase Utley "footsteps" rumor. He may even have notched .200 this morning.
But we are not out of the swamp. The muck of Chris Capuano still sucks us down. I find his presence unfathomable. And Joe is considering a two-header for an upcoming game; Cappy and Warren. We'll lose by 10 and use up the bullpen. Just concede that one.
Nice to see our young first baseman crush a couple of pitches for outs. Then, he fell into the latest A-Rod syndrome, watching and or flailing at third strikes.
Bad night for his family. No one like to see their child fail in public. At least he played OK defence.
The bus is warming, though.
