Make Like a Banana and Split

September 16, 2006: Boston 5, N.Y. Yankees 2
September 16, 2006: N.Y. Yankees 7, Boston 5

Back when this season began, who would have guessed that the last Boston-New York series of the season would be practically meaningless? I bet a lot of people bought tickets to these games, thinking they'd be electric.

Electric wasn't exactly the word for it. They were excruciating to watch. Slow, sloppy, the players on both teams visibly dragging. I suspect there would be a lot of greenies sucked down on a weekend like this in previous years.

As expected with a doubleheader, there were a lot of second stringers in, especially by the ends of the games. Which of course made me wonder why the likes of Nick Green and Andy Phillips are on the roster, but Bubba Crosby isn't. Sigh.

Jim Kaat's last game was supposed to be Friday night, but it was rained out. He did throw out the first pitch in the first game of the doubleheader Saturday, and hung around in the booth for awhile, but couldn't stay to call another game. Best of luck, Kitty.
