Yesterday, on YES, I tuned in when the game was already over.
I don't recall the inning, but it was 3-2 Yanks and nothing changed. No one got a hit, no bases were stolen, lots of guys ( both teams ) struck out, and treat of treats, I got to see Beltran's final at bat of the day, where he did nothing but look old and slow.
There were no pitchers of note when I tuned in, just the sorry parade of no names, fighting for that one spot in the 5th or 6th inning when the Yanks need to hold a blow-out from becoming embarrassing.
I saw Chason Shreve, for example, and somebody named Goody??
The kid who hit .300 for Scranton last year, and was a star in the Arizona league, was tucked into left field for the 9th. I saw him gather up a single to left and throw to second. But I did not get to see him hit.
There was a shortstop not named Mateo or Didi playing.
The excitement exhausts me.
Note to Yankee fans; The NCAA's are back. Respite for another two weeks.
