Yanks look to avoid a disastrous West Coast swing with a win today.
Never mind crying over spilt milk:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
I've had dreams where Ichiro led off for the Yankees, followed by Jeter and then Cano. Is today the day those dreams are realized?
(Trying to take your advice on the milk and stay positive.)
Tampa DFA'd Matsui.
What say we sign Hideki tomorrow, have him go 10 for 15 vs Boston over the weekend, and then have the retirement press conference at the Stadium first thing Monday morning?
Almost missed the game.
 Maybe 3 years ago, but now, Ichiro should not be anywhere near the top of our order.
I'm 99% sure Girardi is leading Ichiro off because he knows this could be his final game in Seattle.
And if that's the reason, I'm basically OK with it.
A bad time for Nova to suck.
Another runner stranded at third. I hate this.
That's better, Ivan.
Yup, Jeter's definitely finished. only 3 for 3 with a home run.
Modified David Brent:
1) Leave Work.
2) Get on subway.
3) Yanks win.
damn i totally didn't realize it was a day game. just got home though and the game is on!
pitching has been solid on this west coast trip. our bats though. sigh.
 Nova = six walks today. Including walking in a run in the first. Command was a bit off today.
I've been watching this at my dad's house. Oi! There's the 3rd straight hit the Yanks have had with a risp with no run scoring. FWIW.
 fair enough. still only 2 runs.
well, if we don't score here then i'm gonna whine really loud.
Atta boy, Curtis! Pop up with the bases loaded. Huzzah!
Bases loaded, no outs? Seattle's got us right where they want us.
I now foresee a strikeout for Nix.
Reverse Jinx, BABY! A bases clearing double. Holy Shit. I can't believe it!
woo hoo! there's the score truck. nix must have been valet parking it.
Martin with a 2 out rbi. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Mo.
2 pitches, 2 outs.
Well that makes this a little less of a train wreck of a road trip. Bring on Boston!
Boston is going be strange without A-Rod. He always elevated his play for those games.
I like the Matsui idea, but we seem to have enough aging DHs with bad knees and weak gloves.
