Last night’s contest certainly wiped the bad taste from Friday night out of the collective palates of Yankee fandom. 4 HRs and an easy 7-3 win will do that for you if you root for the boys in the Bronx. Tex appears to be heating up, and The Captain broke the Yankee team SB record last night, which is among the silliest things I’ve ever read. It took Derek 17 years, Ricky Henderson just 4 and 1/2. Call me crazy, but if I need a SB I’m still taking Ricky.
Fun fact: Curtis Granderson is #2 in all of Baseball with 15 HRs (Jose Bautista has 18) and the Yankees as a team have hit the most HRs in the game with 70. If they kept up this pace, they would hit 252 HRs for the year. That would break the Yankee record of 244 set in 2009 but still fall short of the all-time MLB team HR record of 264 set by the 1997 Seattle Mariners. The Yanks have scored 52% of their runs this year via the long ball, and while it may come back to bite them come October, for now it’s all good. LONG LIVE TEH BANDBOX!
Here’s your Yankee lineup for this afternoon’s contest:
1. Jeter SS
2. Granderson CF
3. Teixeira 1B
4. Rodriguez 3B
5. Cano 2B
6. Posada DH
7. Gardner LF
8. Dickerson RF
9. Cervelli C
Ivan Nova goes for the Yanks, with old mouthpiece himself Mike Pelfry going for the Mets. The Yanks are 8-0 in rubber matches during the Subway Series. What’s that you smell? Oh that’s right IT’S A YANKEE WIN! GO YANKS!!
