My buddy Sean, A die-hard lifelong Yankee fan called me today as soon as the game ended. Being that the Yankees won 9-4 and sent the Sox to a 1-7 record for the year I expected some gloating. Maybe a shot at the vaunted line up or at the very least some sort of dig about playing catch up for the rest of the year.
Much to my surprise? None of that. He mentioned the bats were coming around, how much he admired Tim Wakefield, and stated that when our pitching started pitching like it would it was going to be a dogfight to the end.
Moral of the story?
When the biggest Yankee fan you know, even AFTER your team falls to 1-7, says they're gonna be OK?
They are gonna be OK.
