Baseball Hall of Fame

This weekend I take my annual trip to Cooperstown with my dad. It is a weekend consumed with the sport of baseball and the very deep history of the game, needless to say it is a great time and also very much symbolizes the mid-point of the summer and will certainly get a full post of its own.

So that’s my very brief summer to date recap…MUCH MUCH MORE TO FOLLOW

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.
