A few quick things tonight:
  • If I had to pick a favorite moment from the weekend series against the Yankees, it would have to be Jacoby Ellsbury's steal of home Sunday night. Stealing home is such a rare feat to start with, and to do it against a couple of veterans like Andy Pettitte and Jorge Posada on national TV against the Yankees made it extra special.
  • A close number two was Jason Bay's home run off Mariano Rivera to tie Friday night's game. Mo's reverse-Fisk body english to try to keep the ball in the ballpark was priceless. That home run will show up on a lot of highlight films this season.
  • I was listening to the beginning of tonight's game on my way home from the train station and Joe Castiglione was talking about how cold it was in Cleveland tonight (47 degrees at game time). The first thing that came to my mind was, "That's what they get for building a ballpark so close to the ocean!" Thanks, Oil Can.
