Andy gets to play

The good news is Andy Phillips got a chance to play, both pinch-hitting and at first base. The bad news is that it was because the game was a blowout, and both teams put the scrubs in.

Andy pinch-hit in the top of the ninth.

He swung at the first pitch and flew out to right field.

He then took over first base. Didn't get much to do there.

He's wearing #29. He's still wearing his socks high, though you can't see it in the picture.

Strange to see Andy in a Mets uniform.

Pretty dismal game for Yankees fans. Carlos Delgado, perhaps afraid of being replaced by Andy, was en fuego. He went 3 for 5, including two homers, one of which was a grand slam. He had nine RBIs, setting a Mets record.

Yankees pitching is pretty horrible. As I feared at the beginning of the season. It's so bad Ohlendorf was sent down and Igawa called up after today's game. And Sidney Ponson is starting tonight, vs. Pedro Martinez. That doesn't sound promising, even if Pedro is well past his prime.

Andy is not in the starting lineup. After Delgado hit so well in the first game, I can see why they want to leave him in for the nightcap.
