Isn't it obvious? Nick Johnson drew another walk, completely validating Bronny Cash's unwillingness to accede to Johnny Damon's and Scott Boras's unreasonable contract demands. Oh, and there was that almost no-hitter, the 10 runs, Mark Teixeira actually hitting the ball, great defense, tears in Joe Maddon's eyes, etc.
Kelly Shoppach broke up CC's no-hitter like a complete jerk! I hate that guy.
Girardi claims that Shoppach was going to be CC's last batter regardless of whether he got on base or not. The long-term is the concern, not a historic and important career achievement, according to Girardi. Perhaps Girardi should start using a lower setting on his hair trimmer. Pull a pitcher after 8 no-hit innings? Crazy talk.
Robinson Cano is quickly emerging as the only Yankee who cares about children. He hit another bomb yesterday, ending the Rays' playoff hopes. "This is why we put him fifth," said Girardi. "Robbie cares about the children, and we need RJG's generous donations to help those children. It was the easiest decision I've ever made as manager."
Posada 1hr = $1
Granderson 2hr = $2
Cano 2hr = $2
