Our roommate was kind enough to give us a ticket to Friday night's Yankees/D-Rays tilt. Sure, we were about five miles away from home plate, but any seat is always a good one; unfortunately, we had tried the "fisherman's platter" for lunch earlier, and had to leave the game in the 5th inning due to stomach complications. (Also, our friends ditched us).

Anyway, it was quite the weekend in the Bronx, at least for the Yankees: .408 average, 49 runs, 62 hits, and 11 home runs. Shelley Duncan -- the next Shane Spencer! -- got in on the action, hitting three home runs, while receiving just as many standing ovations from the always gracious New York crowd. Alex Rodriguez upped his career home run total to 498, and was also beaned by a pitch Saturday afternoon, which caused him much consternation. Seriously, who else saw the clip of A-Rod squirming around in pain like a little girl? YES did him no favors, showing Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano mocking him in the dugout. This went on for about five minutes or so, and even if we weren't cerebral at the time, we still would have found this incredibly entertaining. Anybody got the YouTube clip?
