The Yankees are playing decent ball right now, and just swept the extremely awful Mets in this month's second Subway Series. Interleague games are interesting because you get to see unusual things, like Mariano Rivera swinging a baseball bat. Tonight, he walked with this bases loaded, forcing in a run in the 9th inning. According to the Yankees radio announcers, Derek Jeter was "laughing uncontrollably" while A-Rod "jumped up and down like a six-year-old, yelling 'Yeah!'" A-Rod behaving like and overstimulted child? Nothing new, there.
Also nothing new: Mo shut down the opposition, making him only one of two pitchers to reach the 500 save mark. Amazing! Congratulations Yankees, you may not actually be the best team in baseball, but YOU ARE THE BEST TEAM IN BASEBALL. (You know what I mean.)
From the Yahoo! wrap-up:
"Congratulations, you're the best, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah." Love it.
“After the game, he said, ‘Congratulations, you’re the best, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,’ ” said Rivera, who is 19 years removed from the day he received a $3,000 bonus to sign with the Yankees in Panama, 13 years removed from his first career save, and untold years from calling it a career.
