      Did you happen to take note that a certain pitcher only lasted 4 innings yesterday against the Yanks, then was taken out forcibly? Did you happen to notice that his first name was Pedro? Just a thought.
      I did notice it Mattingly, and I appreciate you allowing the M's to take the lead in the WC race over Boston.

          Don't worry, it's all good, all in fun. Now if I were being evil, I'd just mention that Posada had 2 jacks, 3 RBI while Varitek was 0 for 4, and that the quartet of Nick Johnson, Enrique Wilson, Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter did some damage yesterday. However, I'm not evil, so in celebration of Saturday afternoon:

          Pettitte earns 17th victory, ties AL leaders

          BOSTON (AP) -- Nick Johnson and Jorge Posada wouldn't let the New York Yankees' bullpen give the game away.

          That's why Andy Pettitte came away with a win and Pedro Martinez didn't.

          Pettitte outlasted the fatigued Red Sox ace Saturday and led the Yankees to a 10-7 victory over Boston, surviving early trouble to move into a tie for the league lead with his 17th win. New York extended its lead in the AL East to 4{ games.

          "This could be the biggest game of the year," Yankees manager Joe Torre said.

          • Andy Petite is no longer the leader in wins. Some Sox pitcher is now. The White Sox, not the wrong Sox.

                      I'll accept that. I hope he doesn't do *too* well in October though.

                              Meanwhile, Nellie seemed to be on Theo's payroll out there. He needs to calm down, since he's getting almost as bad as Benitez right now.

                              At least Gabe White showed me something, as he needs to be trusted some more. Hopefully, he's not the only one out there who's good.

                              Oh well, at least our big star from the farm beat theirs.

                              • bah, horrible defense killed us today.

                                Oh well... as it stands now, the yanks need one more win to take the season series, so we'll just have to sweep ya next time
