It was a good day, yesterday. The Dolphins upset the Broncos 34-10 and the Yankees beat the Red Sox 1-0.
I’m not sure what to expect from the Dolphins, but if they can play like they did yesterday, they won’t be so bad. Gus Frerotte surprised me. Then again, it’s one game. Jay Fiedler had games like that, as did Brian Griese. Time will tell.
The Yankee game was great as it was a must win if we’re going to have any shot at the division here in the last 20 games. Plus, we simply cannot afford to lose many games from here on out. Randy Johnson pitched an awesome game (7 IP, 1 H, 0 R), but the end was especially thrilling with Mariano closing the door.
“I threw maybe 12 pitches,” Rivera said. “I knew that Ortiz was going to pinch hit. I wanted to face him.”…
“Maybe the pitch count was up there,” an uncharacteristically jubilant Rivera said. “But I work hard every time I’m going there. What can I say? It was a good one.”…
Rivera threw Damon 10 pitches, all of them cut fastballs with the intent of breaking in toward the lefthanded hitter. “I didn’t want to give him anything so he can get a little blooper or something like that,” Rivera said. “I won’t be able to sleep tonight.”…
“I could’ve thrown 100 pitches today,” Rivera said. “It didn’t matter.”
There is nothing I can say about Mo that I haven’t said before. Love the guy.
