The Yankees won. Yeah, yeah. What may be even more good is that the Red Sox lost. Again. They are now 0-6. Sure, it's early. But man. 0-6. Gonzalez. Crawford. 0-6. That's not simply good. That's hilarious.
Burnett is 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA. In contrast, Sabathia's 1.38 ERA has been good for an 0-2 record. WTF?
Nick Swisher injured Minnesota second baseman Tsuyoshi Nishioka on a hard slide to break up a double play. By injured I mean he broke his leg. Everyone thought the play was clean, except Swisher.
"I wasn't trying to break up the double play, I was trying to hurt him," explained Swisher. "First of all, Tex was running. Have you ever seen Tex run? He's going to be out. That's that. But earlier in the game I overheard Nishioka say that the Sushi in California is subpar relative to what you get in Japan. I'm from California and I don't play that $#!%."
It remains to see whether the incident will result in any bad blood between these two clubs.
Oh The Humanity
