Well that was fun, wasn’t it everybody? After three games in three days, I can fold up the Swiss flag and go back to cheering on my Nationals and my Yankees as they march on to 116-46 and 133-29 records, respectively. Now, I don’t have to worry about being neutral again until the World Series begins in October!
Yesterday, in a game delayed over 5 hours by rain, Craig Stammen got his first win ever. Washington shut out the Yankees 3-0 with the help of four relievers. Joba Chamberlin got the loss for New York.
Oh and memo to Stan Kasten, this is how you handle a bad weather game (from The Times article linked below):
In the first inning, the Yankees thanked fans for being patient and invited them to relocate to any seats in the main and field levels. The fans scurried to get those seats, with some climbing over railings. The nine rows of premium seats, which include the much-scrutinized $2,500 seats, were off limits.
…the Yankees announced that tickets from Thursday’s game could be redeemed for free bleacher, grandstand or terrace tickets to nonpremium games for the rest of this season or 2010. Fans also have the option of redeeming their tickets for half-price tickets to nonsuite seats in 2009 or 2010.
I am positive that neither fanbase or the media will overreact to the last three games, aren’t you?
So, which manager is in hot water this morning?
