“I love baseball. You know, it doesn’t have to mean anything, it’s just very beautiful to watch.” (Woody Allen as Leonard Zelig)
Such was the case for the Yankees yesterday, when, in a meaningless game, everything seemed right with the world. Randy Johnson had his best performance of the spring, dominating the Atlanta Braves for six innings; Mariano Rivera threw another scoreless inning with ease; and the offense, led by Alex Rodriguez, Tino Martinez, Jason Giambi, and Derek Jeter, pounded out twelve runs.
People, get ready.
