In light of the off day, I'm still reliving yesterday's outburst against Johnson. The NY Times ran this breakdown:

Sadly, they forgot this image: :bandance:

I can't stop thinking how great Aaron's and Widger's HR's were.

Pauley has a real sweet swing.

"Of course we at the Cubune would have paid tribute to the Sox fourth inning, too, but... umm.... err... our photogapher ran out of film at that exact moment and we didn't get any pictures. Yeah that's the ticket, we didn't have any more film. ... So we just decided to go with the "what's wrong with the Sox angle" instead. Sure it's old news... but we're the Cubune. We can do what we want. Just ask Don Wycliff. He's got an advanced degree... in journalism, no less!!!"

The best part of Widger's HR, was it was shoulder high, he fought it off, and nailed it. That one, IMO, really pissed the Unit off.

I love that picture of Iguchi, he looks like he just tapping it, Aaron, Walnuts, and Widger look like they're swinging for a longball with the facial expressions, but Iguchi look so laid back.

"He makes that pitch, and 99 out of 100 times, there's no way I even put that ball in play," Widger said. "That just happened to be the one where I did. I hit it solid, but it was a two-strike swing, and I didn't know it was going. Shoot, after I hit it, I was just happy that I made contact and put it in the outfield, to be honest with you.

"I'm not that good, especially. Even the good hitters aren't going to hit that pitch very often. He put it right where he wanted to at 94 miles an hour. Somehow, the barrel of my bat hit it. I'm not going to question why it happened. I'm just happy that it did."


Enough! I didn't hear the Yanks apologizing for how they won the first two.:cool:
