Smooth out the R&B.
The Yankees’s DL squad needed a left-hander in to compliment Ivan Nova and Michael Pineda; Andy Pettitte obliged them as he joined the walking wounded yesterday (15 day DL).
So Hiroki Kuroda went out and made us forget that storyline–oh yeah, it’s called “a narrative” these days–as he two-hit the Blue Jays over eight innings. How solid has this guy been? Man, what a pleasure.
Final Score: Yanks 5, Jays 0.

Before the Grits…
It’s a lovely spring morning in the Bronx. Today gives NBA playoffs and baseball, lots more baseball.
Yanks go for the sweep against the Rangers. Here’s hoping for a good day. In the meantime, some Sunday soul.
I love the sound of footsteps crunching in the snow, especially at night. You can feel the quiet around you, a heightened intimacy. Reminds me of this Al Green song. A music nyerd friend of mine once told me that producer Willie Mitchell achieved the vibe on the record by turning up the volume on all the microphones in the studio. Then Green sang softly and the band played softly, to great effect. They are all up in your ear hole…crunchy.
