C-A, T-U-R, D-A-Y, yikes!

Who’s Your Daddy Pappa-san?

Dice-K wriggled of the hook, Andy was flat and his fielders were kicking the ball around most of the night (note to AL: “don’t try running on Melky”), but the Yanks blasted the crap out of the Boston bullpen’s best to win a game they had no business winning:
WHERE ARE YOUR BULLPEN GODS NOW?

This is why the New York Yankees are potentially the most dangerous team in the playoffs. That six-spot they put up in the eighth inning against two of the best relievers in baseball – Hideki Okajima and Jonathan Papelbon – is proof enough that the Yankees can hit good pitching.

What are the chances they’ll come up against a pitching staff similar to the Tigers of last season and get shut down again? I wouldn’t bet the house on it. Anyway, that was a hard question to answer last night after they overturned a 7-2 Sox lead and took an 8-7 victory last night at Fenway.

“It certainly makes us feel better than it makes them feel bad,” said Yankees manager Joe Torre. “It’s great for us. We lost a tough game in Toronto. We gave a lot away tonight. I want to say it’s huge with 15-16 games left on the schedule. This is where emotion kind of takes over.”

If I’m the Yankees, I fly Bucky in to deliver today’s lineup card.
