Yankee Panky

Random Sox-Yankee thoughts.....

The Yankees have allowed a total of 38 runs in the past two Saturday's.
A 2 run lead in a Sox-Yankee game, no matter what inning, is still a virtual tie. (Make that a 6 run lead.) A 5 run lead in the 9th should be called a save situation.

When Papi was at bat with the bases loaded, I'm sure I saw him wearing a red Youk shirt under his white uni. I know I saw Y-O-U- when I scrambled to see if there was a number, but he turned away before I could confirm it. Did anyone else notice that? Is that his version of Giambi's lucky thong?

Mike Lowell sure has been silencing his critics: .328 BA, .625 SLG, and 22 RBI's. Despite his .229 BA, Tek has a .542 SLG, and only 8 RBI's, but that's only because he has Lowell cleaning up in front of him. Lowell's 22 RBI's puts him in 1st place in the AL so far this season.

In the top of the 9th, Jeter hit a foul ball, to which a fan responded loud enough to be picked up by TV, "That would have been a home run in your stadium."

This is the first time since 1968 the Yankees have blown a 6 run lead to the Sox that late in the game.

Kansas City and Seattle are in 1st place in their divisions. (Huh?! Yes, it's true.)

Is Hank still around? Who got him to shut his trap? Bloggers everywhere must be chomping at the bit waiting for his next nugget, just as comedians are missing Bush.

Thanks to ESPN for the post title.
