Last night’s YANKEES/WHITE SOX game at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed And Ego Built, was puke-inducing bad!! It was one of the worst EVER!!
The Yankees gave AAA callup Adam Warren, who was be making his first major league start, a 4-0 lead and he promptly blew it giving up 6 runs on 8 hits, 2 homers and walking 2 in only 2 1/3 innings. It was painful to watch. I really felt bad for his family and friends who were in attendance for his Yankee debut.
In the later innings it got even worse for The Wankies as Cory Wade was pathetic, giving up 6 runs in 2 1/3 innings.
The White Sox won 14-7. Barf!!
And, what was a nice balmy evening turned into a sweltering mess as the breeze suddenly died and the stadium turned into an oven. It was as unpleasant as the game itself.
The only positive note for Billi Pod was having some face time, albeit too brief, with John Scott Reed aka Fabson and Bernard Lam and then with Ashley Zandy and Maria Claudio. Nice seeing you guys.
Interesting side-note==>Scott and Bernard came to the game on Bernard’s Harley, riding from The East Village in Manhattan to 161st Street in The Bronx. Cool!
Game 3 of the 4-game White Sox series is at 1:05 with Hiroki Kuroda (7-7) on the mound vs. Jake Peavy (6-4).
I will, of course, stay in the cool confines of PHC and watch the game. And then for the evening will be ...
8:00==>7th MONARCH - “A social worker investigates a possible crime involving a reclusive mathematician and jarring discoveries are soon revealed.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
This show is playing at a theater on my block.
OK my loyal and faithful readers, it is almost game time so I will post this and settle in to, hopefully, see The Bronx Bombers atone for last night’s fiasco.
