So the Yankees-Dodgers series ended in style on Sunday night with a fantastic come from behind win but I wasn’t around to write about it, so I’m going to do it now.
Let’s start with Sunday. The ninth inning was definitely awesome to see. Maybe it was the heat, but I was feeling incredibly frustrated with the Yankees as my girlfriend and I watched and had almost resigned myself to a loss. I’m glad the Bombers restored my faith. On Robinson Cano, well, he’s just all sorts of fantastic. He’s tied for the WAR lead (4.5) with Justin Morneau and I get a giddy feeling watching him play.
Saturday…well, A.J.’s just lost right now. I don’t know what else they can do but send him out there every five days and hope he gets back on track.
Friday was pretty sweet, too. A-Rod homered and CC was CC. And while I generally get annoyed with the whole idea of bean-ball-wars, it was nice to see Sabathia plunk Padilla and stare him down. I could totally see CC jumping on that goomba looking mother fucker Mario style.
Anyway, onto the storylines, ’cause everyone loves a good narrative…
The whole A-Rod/Torre thing: While I would’ve liked to have seen Rodriguez give Torre the cold shoulder all weekend, but it was nice to see A-Rod take the high road and greet Torre.
As for facing Torre, I’d be lying if I didn’t say it felt good to see the Yankees take two of three from his team. I appreciate what Torre did for the Yankees, but I’m not going to line up for the Torre worship that usually takes place in the main stream media. I’ve always said the Yankees made Torre more than Torre made the Yankees. Both parties have culpability in the current fractured relationship, but I don’t see the cold war lasting forever. Before long, there will be a thawing.
