Sox Lose Game, Junkees Lose Wang

It's here we go again time, folks. Another Junkees win over the Sox. Homers from the juice boys, Sheff and Giambaby. A-Schmuck finally had a big hit, this one off Schilling in a future YES Classic. Rivera gets the save against the Sox this time. Junkees only 1 and 1/2 out of first. Time to get excited about Palmeiro's run for 3,000 hits. I'd rather watch that.

But one other thing to watch will be how the Junkees respond to their most devastating injury yet, to Chieng-Ming Wang. I was reading Klapisch's piece about the guy on ESPN today, and interestingly, the fact he had shoulder surgery a few years ago stuck out at me. Not sure whether it has anything to do with today's injury (maybe the guy's just fragile?), but after calling the Yankees "lucky" the other day, I might have to take that one back. Whatever it is, their rotation is now officially a big mess. And Moose did not do too well tonight. Maybe things will get better before they get worse.

The first game of the series? WHO CARES? WE GOT OUR REVENGE LAST NIGHT! 17-1! 17-1! 17-1! Has a nice ring to it, no?

Another Stinkee starter goes down with an injury, so they set their sights on Al Leiter, who the Marlins were dumping. Sure enough, they snap their fingers and he's back in the fold, ready for tomorrow's game. Now what's their payroll, fercryinoutloud?!!! Nothing against Leiter, but I'm hoping that he's ineffective, and that we finally have a Yankee-free October.
