"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice


On a gorgeous early autumn day in New York the Yankees beat the Rays, 5-3. It was another close one–the Rays had the tying runs on base in the ninth before Rafael Soriano got the final out–but no complaints here. Bitching at this point of the season when your team wins is unseemly.

The story of the day was Ivan Nova who was terrific. He gave the Yanks the kind of performance they’ve needed from CC Sabathia. Curtis Granderson and Eduardo Nunez hit back-to-back home runs against James Shields early, Derek Jeter added an RBI single later on, and Alex Rodriguez drove home an insurance run with an RBI base hit in the eighth.

Yes, today was good in Yankeeland.

Head on over to the ol’ Lo Hud for more.

I simply don't know how they're doing it, but the A's are ahead of the O's 5-2 after 5.

Not smiling. Just home from a long day and put on the game..it's JoeBuck & Timmah. Joe already dropped "There's no bigger Billy Joel fan than Timmah and he's going to tell us all about the PRESSURE of the pennant when we return."

I'm no TV exec but how could anyone approve that intro?

Oh well, can enjoy it on mute! :)
