I wish I could find a picture of CC and Andy Pettitte laughing their butts off at Joba’s ‘athletic’ play. That was priceless.
Also priceless for me was watching Nick Swisher come out of his slump a bit. His two-run double just missed being a grand slam.
I did think I was going to lose my mind, though, in the sixth when the bases were loaded with nobody out and the Yankees couldn’t score. No matter, though. The boys came through in the end, and Joba went eight strong innings to make it stand up. And he was still throwing 95 in the eighth. I love it when a plan comes together.
So, right at the end of the game, my husband walks in. He had just gotten home from work. YES replays the clip of Joba diving for the ball and he says, “That’s why I felt my desk shake at work.” I am not amused. But not even five minutes later, Swisher is with Kim Jones and says something about the ground shaking when Joba dove for the ball. My husband yells, “See? Even he said it!”
Nick, honey, please stop making it so easy for my Red Sox lovin’ husband to make fun. Thanks.
