"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

The Chicago Way

A win that looks a sure loss is an effective tonic. Following a loss that looked a sure win, it’s a necessary one too. And that’s what the Yankees got thanks to a furious ninth inning rally and tenth inning game-winner from Jacoby Ellsbury – Yanks 4, White Sox 3.


Frankly this was shocking as the Yankees have looked like dead meat since coming to Chicago. Somehow, dead meat has emerged victors twice in five games and has a chance to play it even with a win Sunday and one pitcher who we actually expect  to deliver.

Sorry for the lack of threads and recaps these last few days, but we’ve ironed out the kinks and we’ll run light and smooth through the weekend and will be back to usual after the holiday.

Enjoy the win. Enjoy the Champions League Final (if you missed it live) and the NHL and NBA playoffs in hyperdrive.

We've been making our own fun.

Speaking of which: extras at the Trop again.

Now going to the twelfth at the Trop.
The Red Sox scored five in the first off Price, but have only one hit, a bloop single, since then. That fiver was the only scoring inning for Boston in the last twenty-six innings.

You thought we had troubles.

Fifteenth inning. Loney lead-off single. Guyer bunts and the Sox fielders watch in roll for a hit. It was one of those "You gonna get it?" "No, you can get it" "You better get it..."

Desmond Jennings bunts two foul with nobody out, then taps one up the middle, fielded by the pitcher Andrew Miller, who turns... and throws it into center field. Ballgame.

[4] Comments regarding a pitcher fielding a bunt and throwing said bunt into centerfield should be sent into moderation never to be seen again.

[5] Whaddayamean? That's never, ever happened in our Yankee-fandom timeframe..nope. Never.

[6] I blame Mo for everything bad that's happened in America since that error. The demise of The Dynasty. The trade of Soriano. The A-Rod era. Racist immigration policies in Arizona. And the gluten-free follies.
