Wang, who has traditionally had trouble with Boston, needed just 93 pitches to dispose of them tonight. Only two hits and one run allowed, that's pretty impressive against this Boston team.
Also important, though it may get overshadowed by Wang's performance, was Girardi's managing of the offense. We manufactured a lot of runs tonight with sac bunts and flys and the credit has to go to Girardi for not letting us wait around until Giambi hit a homerun, which he did eventually anyway.
Moving on to the next game, it should be interesting to see if Hughes, who I believe is pitching tomorrow, can rebound from his last start. He's got a tough offense to do it against so it will definitely be an uphill battle for the youngster.
Carl Pavano earned about $117,000 for today's game, which may be the only major downside.
