Deuces Are Wild Again

The Yankees registered another formulaic win yesterday, thrashing the Twinkies 2-1.

With Tex back in the line-up, the Yankees somehow scrambled for the 2 runs they are usually allotted on a game by game basis.  I think I saw Tex smack one into short right field, for a routine ground out.

But our pitching was as projected:  Decent starting work for 6 innings, and then the three aces of the bullpen.

The Twinkies are not exactly an offensive threat, so they were content with a single run.

Can I be the first to say it?

The Yankees make tight games boring.

I was well into my third JACK AND COKE during inning three.  The remainder of the game gets a bit fuzzy.  I kept seeing flashes of the Croation soccer team playing against Ireland.

Were John & Suzyn talking about the Euro Cup?

Anyway, at some point, the Yankees will start playing real teams won't they?

It doesn't really matter.  As long as .500 gets us to the one game play-in opportunity, I'm down with it.

Two runs today, folks.  We hit the deuce again.
