The Baseball Trip Looms

Just back from a draining Yankees-Rangers game with Jon and NickandPatty (they recently moved in together, so they're a compound word for the next few days, just to tease them). Partly, the game was a way for me and Jon to warm up for our impending weeklong trip to Texas, during which we'll see five games.

Tonight was a better dress rehearsal than we could have imagined, since it ended up 14-13 and kind of felt like five games.

The Rangers' Mark Teixeira said, "It had everything. It had a lot of runs. It had good pitching, at times. It had defense. It had balls caroming off runners."

Hmm. I suppose there were some good pitches, but I don't think that's the same as good pitching. The teams combined for 33 hits. That might represent good pitching over a four-game series.

There's much more to say about the night, actually, but I think we'll post that on the baseball-related blog tomorrow to kick-start that puppy. I'll link to it when it's up.
