Readers who have followed AB4AR from the beginning may remember when I used to litter the blog with NFL-related posts and UConn basketball posts.  Those days are long gone, but as a UConn grad I'd be remissed if I didn't mention the fact that the Huskies are going back to the National Championship Game on Monday night and congratulate them on the accomplishment.  Don't worry, there won't be any analysis of the game on Monday or anything like that, but my Yankee boners for A-Rod and Mariano will take a quick backseat to my UConn boners for Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb.

A Winning Formula

He wasn't Good A.J. or Bad A.J. today, more just Mediocre A.J.  And Joe didn't risk sending him back out for the 6th inning after he showed signs of crumbling in the 5th.  But when the heart of order plays like they did today, Mediocre A.J. should be good enough to win.

The Horse and his Thoroughbreds combined to go 5-12 at the plate today, with 4 XBH (2 2B and 2 HR), 5 runs scored, 6 RBI, and 2 BB.  Teix cranked his 2nd 3-run job of the season, and he and Cano each saw 20+ pitches again.  When these 3 are all on their game, that's a near impossible trap to navigate for an opposing pitching staff.  And they all appear to be on their game to start the season, something we haven't seen since the 3 became teammates.  And I love it.

As Good As It Could Get On An Off Day

No Yankee baseball last night, but that didn't change that fact that it was still a good night to be a Yankee fan.

Daniel Bahhhhhhhhhd completely shat the bed in the 8th inning for the Fraud Sawx, who lost to the Rangers.  And Terry Collins' Mets and the lineup that he said he "stack up against anybody's" got no-hit by Josh Johnson into the 7th inning before putting a few garbage runs on the board and losing 6-2.

Good times.  That's all I can say, good times.

Hopefully A.J. has been taking his Theraflu and Nyquil to get ready for today.
