Next best thing to a Red Sox win? A Yankee loss.
With El Nino playing havoc with the weather in Boston tonight, no game was played at Fenway: instead a double header tomorrow if Mother Nature will quit screwing around and actually let them play a game.
3-2 Mets and George is having a fit as we speak: The Yankees are now 10, yes 10 games back in the AL East. On a night when there was no Red Sox baseball to be found, Willie Randolph and his Mets put a smile on my face. Speaking of Randolph, how do you think he feels about beating the Yankees? After all his years of service as a player/coach for the Yankees, without so much as a sniff at the manager's job, he goes over to the Mets and turns them into one of the best teams in baseball the last few years. Gotta be a good feeling.
Lastly, God Bless You Billy Wagner: all 5 ft 9 inches of you with your 100 mph fastball. Get Mr. April to ground out, strike out Posada, Matsui squeaks a infield hit, and you strike out Giambi swinging to put it away.
Well done young man. Well done.
