Steve: Well, Tanya, the Yankees could move on with a win tonight, but I don't know how anything can top last night's dramatic ending.
Tanya: I don't think I've even recovered from that yet.
Steve: Being ancient compared to you, I've seen so much of this kind of thing from this franchise that I don't get worked up like that. I just quietly say, "Oh, yeah. That's what they do."
Tanya: Even in the lesser time I've had, you'd think I'd get used to it at some point. Not yet.
Steve: Before anything bad happens, let me just point out that scary home run machine Phil Hughes had an ERA a little more than a full run lower at home -- that despite all those longballs. As good as he is, he might be more valuable to another team than to the Yankees. It's just scary that opponents slugged .460 against him this year. And with that bunt, he's already in trouble.
Tanya: Stupid dirt. That looked like it was going foul.
Steve: So first and second, none out, and a pitcher who can give up a HR at any time.
Tanya: Slightly terrified.
Steve: I think I said this last night, but there are pills for that.
Tanya: I might have to look into that.
Steve: If you ever come up this way, you can try out some of mine. Come to think of it, maybe THAT'S why I can stay subdued after a walk-off home run. Or a massive explosion.
Tanya: This is a fantastic spot for Phil...
Steve: My, Wieters did him a favor there. You would think he would take one, but good for the Yankees.
To the bottom of the first!
