A walk-off win over Buck Showalter's robot pugs, who crushed us last week. A masterpiece by Ivan Nova, whom we'd nearly forgotten. A Gatorade bath for Vernon Wells, still the only RH power "threat" in our lineup. A clutch hit by David Adams, fighting through his first slump. (As Brett Gardner did.)Another blown save by Baltimore's closer, who is not named Mariano. And the bowel movements - ahh, yes, we are moving! - throughout our system.Today, Derek Jeter is captain of the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Railriders. (Technically, if you're captain of the Yankees, that makes you captain of the entire farm system; you can order players to run to the store for a pack of Camels, and they have to do it.) That's a two hour drive to the stadium.Today, Eduardo Nunez is rising from yesterday's 3 for 3 game in Trenton. He's on his way.Today, A-Rod plays in Tampa, Michael Pineda will start at Double A, and somewhere, between charity events, the Grandyman will bathe his broken pinkie in warm milk.Listen: None
