"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice


After the Old Timer’s Day festivities today, Ivan Nova returned from the DL and pitched a good game. According to Chad Jennings:

“Their guy really settled in,” [Joe] Maddon said. “I don’t understand why this guy struggles. I have never seen him bad. I don’t know — one of the best pitchers in the world as far as I’m concerned. He gets that hook over and he’s really tough on left-handers.”

Score was tied 1-1 in the seventh and there were two men out when Nova hit a batter (Desmond Jennings, elbow) and then another (Ben Zobrist, foot) and by the time the inning was over, three pitchers later, the Rays had a 2-run lead on the count of James Loney’s RBI single against Boone Logan.

A shame for sure but something had to give and after scoring a run in the first, the Yanks were blanked for the rest of the afternoon.

Final Score: Rays 3, Yanks 1.

So they settle for a split of the four-game series. Not stellar and not a disaster, pretty much like the Yankee season so far.

Cromulent, that's what they've been.

A whole lot of meh.

Uncle Woodrow and I tuned in just in time to see Joe doing his binder trick with Kelley in to walk the bases full and Boone Logan... I just knew that Maddon had binder-repellent for this (or that Boo! would just bring a lot of suck). Sure enough, we flipped the channels in mid-flight right after Loney made contact with the ball, secure in the fact that all was lost for the afternoon.

My roommate and I ended up getting lousy burgers in Croton and watching the sun set nicely over the Peekskill Bay. Gotta put things in proper perspective sometimes >;)

[2] You've got me wondering where I would go for a burger in Croton at all. The diner? Pizza & Brew is gone, right? Prolly someplace I've missed entirely after leaving. There was once an attempt to site a McD on the lot between Kayson and the post office, but they nixed that hard and fast. Where'd you watch the sunset from?

[3] I would try the Colonial Diner on South Riverside; it was always decent to me. Haven't seen Pizza and Brew, but they have a new BBQ jernt called Memphis Mae's and the food is really good there. Don't go to Tavern in Croton Landing (formerly Honey's); nice people, but they need new cooks.

For Sunset, we went to the park on the river behind the train station in Peekskill. They've fixed it up quite nicely and there's a nice view of the river upstream. Took some nice pics that maybe AB will post here someday if he's interested (of course my blog does need new material, so that might be the best place for them.)
