This team is good.

The Yankees did it again tonight. This was a close pitchers duel, but Phil Hughes was basically un-hittable. Hughes is the second Yankee starter in less than a week to flirt with a No-No. 10 Strikeouts to boot. He gave up one hit over almost 8 complete and he was simply nasty.

But other than the starting pitching clinic , I just like the way this team is grinding. They went into the 9th we a 2-1 lead, almost no margin for error for the bottom of the 9th and Brett Gardner gets an RBI single for the insurance run with Granderson scoring.

And Mariano Rivera is robotic again, one hit batter and one base hit, no biggie. Ice in his veins.

I am starting to think that Steve Jobs actually built Mariano Rivera.

The offensive prowess of this 2010 Yankee squad has never been in question, but when your # 5 starters throws a 1 hitter on the road against a potential playoff contender, things are starting to feel good.

West Coast Road Trip!

Posted in Baseball, MLB, New York Yankees with tags , , , on April 20, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

West Coast road trip. I am not talking about me and my boys hopping into the Rover and driving cross country, I am talking about when the Bronx Bombers fly cross country and face their West Coast rivals. The beauty in the New York Yankee west coast rode trip….the 10:00pm start time on TV.

As a kid, this was it for me. Slide into bed around 10:30 on a school night and watch the Yankees till about 1:ooam. Now I have never really had a bed time per se, but being able to watch those games after home work was completed, phone calls were made, even most likely some action figures played with. Lights out , TV on…….Yankees on the West Coast is great!

So tonight the Yankees start their first west coast swing of 2010 (If I am correct there will only be one more West Coast road trip this 2010 campaign and that is not until mid – july)

The surging bombers are playing the suprising A’s. Should be a solid match up.But watching these game that start at 10 are the best.

PREDICTION : Yanks Take 2 of 3
