    • I am convinced that Scott Proctor has a twin brother we don't know about. One shows up and does 2 innings and the rest does the other 2 innings.

      Now then, who pitches the 9th? Mo (after 2 innings yesterday)? Or do we forfeit?

      With ex-Yankee farmhand Wily Mo Pena's HR, it's now a 2-1 game. If Mo doesn't go 1-2-3, we've got Ortiz up with a 1-run lead. Not a good thought, but I do hope we get some insurance runs in the 9th.

      Since when did you become a Yankee fan? I seem to remember you sporting some Beantown red stuff on you.

            • It means the same thing as "Owned"

              Nobody could have predicted a 5 game sweep in fenway. we outhit them, outpiched, and outran them.

              Coco Crisp went 1 for 19 in the series. I bet Red Sox fans aren't too happy about Damon's replacement, considering how Damon did against the Sox.

                I think he lost a bet

                Anyway, i`m not counting them out yet. If we're l;eading the division sunstantially after this tough, 28 game stretch I`ll call Boston virtually done

                  • Scott Proctor has got to get the award for going out there almost every day for an inning or two and failing very infrequently. He gives up a big hiccup and we lost that game. He's been the backbone of that Yankee bullpen the past few days. No bridge to Mo if he doesn't hold it steady. This despite his arm seemingly about to fall off. This after having pitched about the most innings of any reliever this season so far.

                    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/player...?playerId=5810

                    3.0 innings in 2 days, 1 day's rest, another 1.2 innings the next day and 1.1 innings today. That's 6.0 innings over 5 days with only the middle day for rest. Amazing! Even moreso, in all this time, he only allowed 1 ER, which is Wily Mo's HR in the 8th today.

                    Damon came up huge, Posada gave us some key runs that put us over the top, Giambi smacked a pair of dingers yesterday, Abreu's patience played off, Melky and Cano did their parts both offensively and defensively, and A-Rod still wasn't so bad.

                    Mo came through when we needed him and Farns did his job this afternoon, earning the 1-out save, getting the 1-2-3 and avoiding Ortiz, who was on deck.

                    Great team performance. When all cylinders are clicking and we can win like this using pitching, offense, defense, baserunning, I say we're in business.

                    YANKEEEEEEEEEEE BASEBALL!

                    BOOM, BOOM ... BOOM-BOOM-BOOM!

                          • The best part was Torre saw this as a give-away game. He benched Damon, Giambi, and Posada, replacing them with Sal Fasano, Bernie Williams, and Craig Wilson -- all automatic outs. He also refused to use Rivera, going instead with the wild but good Farnsworth. And he put Green at SS, DHing Jeter.

                            And we still won. You know the Red Sox are bad when Torre is basically giving a game away to give his guys rest and they still lose.

                              I consider those benchings to be necessary evils. Our boys still haven't gotten a day off and fly out to Seattle to play on Tuesday. Next day off: next Monday. :o

                              Since A-Rod was put as DH yesterday with the versatile Nick Green as 3B (likely a "wink-wink" thing so Moose wouldn't get upset), Jeter played SS. Now they reversed and Jeter is the DH. I think it's a wise way of resting your staff and letting almost everyone still play: resting while remaining fresh.

                              I'm still surprised that Scott Proctor even went to the mound other than to see how high it was. You'd think that guy would be in a cast by now. He brought it and kept on bringing it. I could never fault him for the HR given up to Wily Mo Pena. He's done so much for us that there's no way we're letting him go until he can't pitch anymore.

                              Ron Villone was great also, and Mike Myers struck out David Ortiz on 3 strikes in the 7th. Good morning, good afternoon and good night!
