Game 54: Doing some housecleaning.

It’s nice to be able to bring out the Crazy Stein, isn’t it?  There’s just something about seeing the crazed look on his face while he’s wielding the broom like a samurai sword that makes you say, “God, I love this team.”  Only our former owner would be photographed like that, on a WS parade float, no less.

AJ Burnett took the hill yesterday in the hopes of closing out the series with a sweep, and he accomplished just that.  His final line was 7 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K.  Joba and Mo completed the final two innings, notching Mr. Rivera his 14th save of the season, and bringing him to within 29 of the all-time record.  With 108 games left, I think he can save 29 of them.

It was a rather low-scoring affair for the Yanks, but that’s fine because four runs when the opponent has only two is enough for a win.  Derek got another hit, going 1-4, so he’s 16 hits away from 3,000 now.  Looks more and more like he’ll get it when the team goes to Cincinnati, and considering he was named captain when the Yankees were playing there one time, the significance would be interesting.  Alex went 2-4 with an RBI, and Swish went 1-3 with 3 RBI.  Let’s keep this going for the next series.
