My Yankees are in first place!!!
As of last night, the NY Yankees now have a 1/2 game lead in the AL east. They played the TX Rangers last night and it started out ugly! But it got a lot better really fast! The Rangers started out with 3 runs in the bottom of the first...I think that woke my Yankees up and they promptly scored 6 in the top of the second. The Yankees ended up winning 11-10...life is good! And the Sox got beat by the DevilRays!!!
The thing that surprised me last night is listening to the crowd when A-rod came to the plate...I'm not sure if the Rangers fans like him any more than a lot of Yankee fans! I've never been a big fan of Alex Rodriguez'. I think he's a bit arrogant...even more than I am...and when I see him on the field I can't forget a play he was involved in last year against the Red Sox. He was running out a hit and tried to swat the ball out of the first basemans mit...that's just not cool! It's also against the rules. I wrote something on here last year...and what it comes down to is...Jeter wouldn't done it...
The guy's a great ball player...probably be in the hall of fame some day...but not everybody can be a true Yankee.
