This 2nd half for the Bombers has only one word to describe it:



Don’t ask what it means.

After Hideki Matsui’s long home run to win the game in walk-off fashion, the Yankees have won their first 4 following the All-Star break and are now tied up with the Red Sox at the top of the AL East thanks to my second favorite team, the Tex-izz Rangers.

I didn’t even jump around and shout like I usually do when there’s a walkoff when Matsui hit it out last night. I simply repeated in a calm voice, “Unbelievable.” Because, while it is unbelievable what we’re doing right now, we’ve been playing so well and doing this so often… simply reduncutron.

Song of the Day is A Tribe Called Quest’s 1991 hit Check The Rhime.

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

    Why don’t you tell me how second place feels EJ? You’ve spent far more time there then I have. Didn’t the Red Sox end the season in second in 2004? Seem to remember that working out quite well for us – wouldn’t you agree? The Red Sox always slump in July. It is like clock work. The only thing that matters is the last one standing in Soxtober. Sorry EJ – been around this game a heck of a lot longer then you and have seen way to much to be worried or concerned.
