Oh my god, people. I cant believe that WBC game last night! David Wright? You let a Met take it all away from you, Puerto Rico!
PR had a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. Cabrera loads the bases, and David Wright bloops it onto right field to win the game.
I'm an American, so I am happy for the USA, but I really wanted to see PR go as far as possible. Sigh.
Moving on, the Yankees played the Pirates (from this point on referred to as Herpes) and gave them a nice whooping, beating them 9-2.
CC Sabathia started the game and was looking good; seems he has worked out his mechanics. What a massive chocolate man. I always knew he was big but WOW, I really noticed it last night. Anyway, he went four innings with seven strike-outs and one earned run.
Mariano Rivera pitched in the fifth and did the only thing he knows how to do: shut 'em down!
Matsui smashed one out of the park last night. My favorite quote from last night's game: "If you were outside of the park and heard that sound, you knew it was a homerun and judging by the crowds reaction, you knew it was a Yankee." Very true.
So I have a new player to hate on this season: Nate McLouth.
Listen Nate, I don't like you or your too-blond hair. You remind me of Jared Leto in Fight Club and I don't like it one bit, freakshow. You've been warned.
One last thing. I don't know if you were watching last night's game, but did you notice when Joe Girardi was being interviewed during the game and he had some guy with him (the host from "Yankees on Deck," I think)? Apparently he got to hang out with Joe all day as an honorary manager. Yeah, Girardi definitely hated it. He was sooo giving the stink eye the whole interview.
Hope you all have a happy hump day!
