      I actually didn't come into this feeling we could win. Strange admission, despite my bravado, but your bats haven't cooled off much, and against Oakland and Seattle, they'd heated up again.

      What were the bad defensive plays made by Boston? With Damon out, I think that Gabe Kapler in LF wasn't so hot. Most of the infield looked good, even turning a Giambi single into a DP. We couldn't catch any breaks, what with some GRD would've scored a runner had it been a regular double, then Bernie missed a HR by a few feet, and Jeter got hurt sliding home.

      I didn't memorize the game, but it seemed that Clemens mostly didn't allow the big hits, and keeping Ortiz from getting the doubles was monster.

      I'm trying to find out, why was a big hitter like Mueller batting leadoff? I thought the high OBP/high walk types bat leadoff, not sluggers.

      Either way, lots of drama, like a prize title fight, and like Saturday's, things got very dangerous in the end for Nelson and Mariano. Varitek's and Nomar's last AB really scared me, so I'm happy it worked out.

      We'll see how everyone's feeling in the final series at Evil Empire Headquarters (your term).

          Mattingly -- the Red Sox made 3 critical errors today. But Clemens is the reason they lost. Good pitching does beat good hitting.

            It seems my mind goes blank after a good game, as to the details. Anyway, it's been said that in sports, the winner isn't necessarily the best, but the loser is generally the one who's made the last mistake.

            Let's see now:

            NY YANKEES 5TH
            -Top of the 5th inning
            -D Jeter singled to right center, D Jeter to second on error by second baseman T Walker.
            -N Johnson singled to right, D Jeter scored.
            -J Giambi grounded into double play, second to shortstop to first, N Johnson out at second.
            -B Williams walked.
            -H Matsui safe at second on error by center fielder G Kapler, B Williams scored.
            -J Posada struck out swinging.
            +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

            In this 1st error, I believe the ball was overthrown (no photographic memory here, so please remind me), and Jeter ended up scoring. This 2nd error would've been the 3rd out, but Bernie scored here.



            NY YANKEES 7TH
            -Top of the 7th inning
            -D Jeter singled to left.
            -S Sauerbeck relieved T Wakefield.
            -A Soriano ran for D Jeter.
            -N Johnson hit by pitch, A Soriano to second.
            -J Giambi struck out swinging.
            -A Soriano to third, N Johnson to second on wild pitch by S Sauerbeck.
            -B Williams intentionally walked.
            -H Matsui grounded into fielder's choice to first, A Soriano out at home, N Johnson to third, B Williams to second, N Johnson and B Williams scored, H Matsui to second on throwing error by catcher D Mi
            -J Posada walked.
            -B Kim relieved S Sauerbeck.
            -A Boone singled to center, H Matsui scored, J Posada to second.
            -J Rivera grounded into fielder's choice to second, A Boone out at second.

            3 runs, 2 hits, 1 error
            NY Yankees 8, Boston 2
            +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

            In this one, now I remember, there was a 3-6-3 play and the catcher overthrew the ball, as Matsui was going along the 1B line, and the throw was a little wide. The throw was in time, but hard for the 1B to handle.

            Yeah, Biggerin was right, there were a few costly errors today.

                    I see that Ken's received the sig. As so as he puts on the same av as I'm sporting, he'll be fully and properly attired.

                    Oh well, it's getting later in the season, so we all know who pulls away at that time, now don't we?

                    Hold up, isn't he supposted to wear the "No No Nanette" av? Did you PM that to him?
