GameChat – Yankees @ Twins, 7:10pm

And the Yankees are in town…

Somehow is this a pre-req for the 4th of July?? I swear that when my bro and I hit the July 4th game last year, it was against the Yankees but I’m too lazy/busy/otherwise occupied to double-check that. And I don’t think last year was the first time either..

My memory could be playing games with me of course. And it’s going to be a beautiful night for baseball and likely a great pitching match-up with former Yankee, Hughes up against Japanese phenom, Tanaka.

Anyone have a guess of the over/under on how many times Bert brings up complete games since Mr. Tanaka seems to have quite an affinity for finishing what he starts?

Anyway, let’s play ball!

well that most certainly didn’t go the way I expected although the result was not all that surprising…  the good news is that they can’t put Tanaka out there again tomorrow.
