Who’ll Stop the Rain?

The rain never really did cease last night. Game started, it was raining, they called it during the fourth inning, and over an hour later when the tarp was removed it continued to rain. Hiroki Kuroda waited out the delay and then pitched one inning. And his team rewarded him by scoring a couple of runs in the bottom of the 5th to put him in line for the victory.

Turns out they were the only runs either team would score. Five Yankee pitchers combined for the shutout with Boone Logan getting extra credit for striking out the side in the 7th when two men were on base. Our man Mo put the Twins to bed in the 9th. Sweet dreams.

Final Score: Yanks 2, Twins 0.

So Jete says, "what else can I say...." Sounds pretty pessimistic to me. But he has escaped criticism for his brevity, a trait I always associated with arrogance unrelated to his skills. We know so little about him. Perhaps the paucity of story directly points to a limited life.

I think he's also cautious that the more he says, the more he reveals, the less control he has. He's been masterful at playing the game with the media and for a young star he's been scandal-free, no small matter. But when you say that he's lead a limited life I think you are on to something. But I think that's true of most people in his position. Your celebrity grants you incredible experiences but also has rigid borders.
