Pregame Notes 28 September 2007

Oh, those birds!

I can probably guarantee that every single Yankee fan is glad we went and clinched a playoff spot against the Rays, so we don't have to worry about doing so in Baltimore, against a team that's given us trouble all season long.

(Except, that is, for the last series we played against them, where we did this whole sweep thing...)

Anyway, Mussina gets to pitch tonight, so we get another look at the post-slump Moose. Right now he's my vote for the NY Yankees comeback player of the year...

Don't be surprised if Damon, Matsui, Giambi and Cano get a night off tonight, or if the starters are all off the field in the fifth in a one-one game. Right now it's about getting rest, and getting ready for next week, which is also why Andy Pettitte will be on a strict 50-60 pitch count on Saturday.

If we happen to end tonight one back of Boston, that's all well and good, but a) it's not likely to happen, and b) at this point, it really doesn't matter.

If you want to enjoy a collapse, look no farther than that other team in New York. You know, the one everyone said would run away with the NL East?

Baseball is a funny sport.

We could theoretically have a Rockies--Yankees World Series. Who saw that one coming?

Like I said, baseball is a funny sport.

Off to buy groceries. I have fallen in love with somen noodles--three minutes to cook, not even, and just dump some frozen shrimp in the pot with your favorite sauce, and boom! Instant meal!
