Saturday==>Last night up at that fetid cesspool known as Fenway Park Alex Rodriguez smashed a pinch-hit homer off Junichi Tazawa in the 8th inning to lead the Yankees to a 3-2 win over the hated FuckSox.
The line drive homer was #660 and tied him with Willie Mays for 4th place on the all-time HR list.
As might be expected this event generated a firestorm of media coverage and these are the headlines in today’s papers ...
CHECK PLEASE! A-Rod’s 660th HR ties Mays, bests Sox. $6M bonus battle with Yanks on deck.

And, in the Gray Lady ...
660. The Number Is the Same. The Context? Anything But.

Oh the drama ...
The game itself was a nail biter. We get a decent outing from the struggling CC Sabathia who gave up 2 runs in 6 innings. He did not get the win. Once again the bullpen was stellar.
On the mound for the Yankees (14-9) will be Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) vs. Wade Miley (1-2) for the FuckSox (12-11).
Of course your favorite Big Apple blogger will be in front of his 42” flat screen TV watching the game and screaming obscenities at those loathsome FuckSox scum-bags.
Moving on ...
