All good things come to an end [1], and the Yankees [2] winning streak [3] ended ugly [4] last night [5], as three errors (Womack, Sheff, and a crucial one by Jorge Posada) [6] resulted in a 7-6 [7] Seattle win [8]. The Bombers had a chance in the ninth, but Jason Giambi [9] struck out with the bases loaded to end the game. I didn’t stay up to watch, so I can’t speak about the particulars, but I gather it was a discourgaing way to cap off an impressive road trip. Regardless, the Yanks are in much better shape today than they were two weeks ago.

The Subway Serious [10] is on this weekend against the Mets [11]. I’m not one for manufactured excitement. As a result, the so-called rivalry with the Mets [12] doesn’t get me amped. However, I’m in the minority on this one, and Shea stadium [13] will be plenty packed. I’ve watched the Mets some this year and think they are an enjoyable team. I’ve always liked Piazza and Cliff Floyd. Beltran is a star, and David Wright is an appealing young player. If their pitching keeps them in the game, they should be a good match for the Yanks. Pedro Martinez has been pushed back to Sunday, so Victor Zambrano gets the nod on Friday night. He’ll go against Kevin Brown [14]. That should be a wild one.
