Double Header

What can I say?

The teams combined for 41 runs and 61 hits. Twenty pitchers -- that's counting Mike Myers and Scott Proctor twice -- threw 783 pitches. In all, the teams played 8:40 minutes of baseball, from Jason Johnson's first pitch at 1:10 p.m. until Mariano Rivera covered first to retire Wily Mo Pena at 12:52 a.m.

Dear Lord I do so hate the Yankees.

Jeez spd, at this point it doesn't even seem right to gloat...kinda like how I feel when we beat Tampa Bay. OK, that's a stretch but you get the point: You're taking all the fun out of it!

I stopped having fun some time ago.

Hard to have fun when you're getting pounded, and tweaked; RSN fans are used to Johnny Damon pulling out all the stops (three doubles, a triple, two homers, eight RBIs, and five runs) just not when he's playing for the MFY:)

Don't give up yet, spd. You still have two more chances before we get to call it a sweep. Hey, maybe Schilling can stop the bleeding (sorry)or at the least stop issuing walks.

28 walks? Good Lord. Whassup with that?
