A Little Help From My Friends
Oh Hideki Matsui used to make me wet my pants when he was a member of the Yankees. He was part of the brutal 8th inning rally against Pedro in the 2003 ALCS Game 7. And if Mariano Rivera got the side retired in Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, Matsui would have won the series MVP.
Then he haunted Pedro again in the 2009 World Series with game winning homers in Games 2 and 6.
But I like him today. I like that he remembered how to hit in Yankee Stadium.
Go A's! Go Matsui!
And a Yankee loss along with the Red Sox win means THE MAGIC NUMBER IS 62!!!!
