Javy? A-Rod? Bah.
The star of the game was Posada: in the first inning, chugging down first--faster than he knew how, yet slower than Softball Guy after three beers--to beat out what was almost certainly an error (and may yet be scored as much tomorrow), and quite possibly could have been two errors had A-Rod come around from third. Next batter, Nick Swisher, two-run single. 3-0.
Later, after Javy had treated us to what, for now, are his obligatory thrills and chills, Posada again busted down the line to beat out a double play. 7-3, for your final.
Goodbye, "Jorgie." Hello, "Wheels."
Complimenting a baseball player for running out grounders to first seems so insignificant . . . until you watch the Mets for five innings.
