Don’t Stop Believing…

…by Journey is the song i am currently listening to =).

And i guess that title fits for the topic of this blog. Well, sorta…

In case you missed it, the Yankees took 2 out of 3 from the Mets this weekend, and so they have won 11 of their last 12 games. 11 of their last 12 games? Thats a 0.9167 winning percentage. Or in other words, 91.67/100. If you get 91.67% on a test (sorry, i’m still in student mode lol), do you know what that means? You get an A. No questions asked. You might even get a cookie along with an A in my background, cause no one scores in the 90s in math/engineering…thats insane!

Point is, the Yankees have been playing A ball. And doesnt it feel good? 😉 To be the best team in baseball when just a couple of weeks ago, we were all so dispirited about the train wreck we looked like out there. I dont know about you, but this makes me feel incredible!!! =)

And thats where the title of this blog comes in. Never stop believing. I keep saying, it’s baseball. Its a pretty long season. Anything can happen. =)

Last night, i watched Chien-Ming Wang pitch yet another brilliant game, and with each outing, i am more and more convinced that he is a phenom in the making. 8(2/3) pitched, 6 hits, 2 ERs and 10 strikeouts, wow!!! How could you not tip your hat to that?

I was amongst the ones throwing a tantrum when Joe took him out in the freaking 9th inning. I hardly ever question Joe’s moves, but why not let the kid get a complete game? Its a 8-2 ball game with 2 outs in the 9th! Worst case scenario, 2 or 3 runs score, but we still win! Geez! **** much? lol.

Anyway, good job to him, and to the rest of the offense, who all chipped in last night and made it happen. Instead of talking about them individually, let me just post the box scores 😉

NY Yankees AB R H RBI BB SO LOB AVG
Damon, DH 5 1 2 2 0 1 2 .257
Jeter, SS 4 1 1 0 0 2 1 .342
Abreu, RF 3 1 1 0 0 0 1 .270
Rodriguez, 3B 2 2 2 3 1 0 0 .315
Posada, C 4 1 1 2 0 2 2 .345
Matsui, LF 4 1 1 0 0 1 2 .297
Cano, 2B 4 0 1 0 0 0 1 .273
Cabrera, CF 4 0 1 0 0 1 2 .242
Cairo, 1B 3 1 1 1 0 0 1 .250
Totals 33 8 11 8 1 7 12

All together, a very fun weekend that was definitely filled with a lot of smack talking, more so from my Mets fan friends who got their feathers back it seemed when the Mets took the first game but quickly shut up after Saturday. Ha. I sorta knew we werent gonna sweep or anything like that. 2 out of 3 is fine with me =).

Now we head over to play the Rockies. Well, i’m not gonna talk smack about the Rockies, lol. They are the Rockies ;-). Ha ha. Lets just say, i expect another series win if not a sweep (i know i’m getting greedy, lol).

Let’s Go Yankees!!!!!

    I don’t think the Rockies will be a pushover. They’re 7-3 in their last ten, and playing in Denver is always a risk because of the long-ball potential. That said, I think getting the series win is definitely within the Yankees’ reach, and the pitching match-ups definitely favor the Yanks. The Yankees have won five series in a row, and six would be great and keep getting this team above .500 with room to spare.

    Enjoy the day off, and Let’s Go Yankees!

    Before I comment on yet another excellent blog by our lovely Lola, I’m pimping out my blog again.
    But this time for a good cause…

    I just posted an article for the New York Newsday about Georgie Posada Junior and his recent round of surgeries due to his craniosynostosis

    I’m hoping, along with everybody else, that this latest surgery for Georgie Junior is his last and that he’s able to play and run and be happy like all children should and won’t have to endure any more of this madness.

    So if you or anyone you know is capable of donating anything big or small to the Jorge Posada foundation for the treatment, cure, and eradication of craniosynostosis …

    I’m down with that…

    Otherwise if you believe in the power of prayer or positive energy — send some lil’ Georgie’s way…

    We’re going to need another catcher some day, y’know?

    I don’t know how I end up with these double comments.
    I did this accidentially on somebody else’s blog yesterday.

    Sorry to do it on yours Lola…

    Anyways, The game last night was fantastic and Wang was just masterful.

    He was terrific.

    Fantastic.

    I’ve been saying for the past two years that our Wang is perhaps the mightiest in all of New York.

    And I was two or three different flavors of *issed off when they lifted him last night with one out left…

    But then when I saw him standing in the dug out sharing that heartfelt warm hug with Gator it didn’t bother me as much anymore.

    It just looked so warm and geniune and it’s like Gator has become a father figure with him.

    Then when Myers struck out Delgado so easily it didn’t matter anymore.

    I was just so happy for Wang.

    He’s our ace and never gets the credit he deserves.
