We Came Very Close

The New York yankees today, in an exceptional display of ineptitude with the bats, nearly won a game, while being victim of a no-hitter.

We all watched in awe as Yankee after Yankee struck out.  This circumstance is called the art
of, " watching nothing happen."

When Oakland scored, after a third out call was missed  (my opinion ) by the umpire on a 3-2 Sabathia pitch, I figured we were done.  Oakland then put together two singles in a row, and tied the game.

Scoring one run without a hit was monumental for this line-up.  Hoping to score two just was impossible.

But Holliday came through, like the professional he is.

And we won the game by scoring 3 runs on two hits.

This dearth of contact ( between Yankee bats and pitches ) is getting contagious.  And I , for one, find it really difficult to watch nothing happen.

But as they say in flight school;  " a win is a win."

I'm told they also say this in flight school:

     A good landing is when you can walk away from the plane.

     A great landing is when you can use the plane again.

Yes, it's another win, but the last few weeks have been nothing more than a good landing.

Suddenly, this season has become (in the Bronx) -- VERY Zen.

"What is the sound of one hand clapping?"

As fans of the Yankees, we are getting closer to actually hearing that . .
