Yankees beat Mets in shocking fashion

Ok, it wasn't what the script said. Mo on the hill in a tied game in the 8th. Gives up a go ahead double. Yankees only have to score 2 against K-Rod to win. Script says Yankees lose.

Oh wait, send it to rewrite. Tex and A-Rod are due up. Game winning homerun. Yank fans fgo home happy.

Naw, too cliche.

How about, Jeter gets on, steals second. Tex walks.

A-Rod then reaches on an error, both runners score. Sounds like a Simpsons episode ending......but, that is what happened.

Go figure.

After the debacle in Beantown, we'll take a win any way we can get it. Even with a cheesy Hollywood ending.

Go Yankees

A win is a win, but here's what impressed me. How easy would it have been for Tex to just have been trotting, knowing the game was over? But to score from first on a routine pop fly?

Yeah, that guy's a "real Yankee" already.

They needed this one, and tomorrow too. I'm not real optimistic about the Burnett-Santana matchup on Sunday.

@ Chris: It's the second inning, and the Yanks are down 2-0 already. Andy has been getting slapped around a bit.
