Stand and Deliver

As requested the Score Truck screeched into the Stadium tonight before the Yanks take off for the west coast.

Curtis Granderson hit a home run in the first and Alex Rodriguez followed a couple of batters later with a two-run dinger. And Rodriguez was pumped.

He was even more amped when he crushed a solo shot to center field his next time up (and cursed himself when he grounded out with the bases loaded in his third at bat). The Yanks scrapped together a few more runs on a night when the Royals pitched, well, like the same old Royals.

Andy Pettitte was crisp, Mark Teixeira and Derek Jeter turned a thrilling double play, as the Yanks won a laugher, 8-3.

And Bronx Banter was full of heppy kets.

[1] I had that yellow Walkman, too. Huge plastic clip that I always thought was going to break. I wonder if I still have it in a shoe box somewhere.

Ah, the mix tape. Make one for a girl, and you were certain to break up. (and I knew that before I read Hi Fidelity.

It's funny that even though I know this is a team sport where everyone needs to contribute, my guts tells me that ARod makes the difference. When he is hot, the team seems to rock. When he's cold, the team seems sluggish.
