As in the dark years, I approach each game as a microcosm...a season unto itself.  This is the only game, the whole season, right here, right now.  

Normally I'd be part of the crowd having the tough time. Lol

Means is gutting it out, here ........ shades of Richard Bleier, early last year before he sustained a season-ending injury.

How about Givens set up man and Wright the closer?

Glad I'm not the only one to think this. Wright looked damn good in closing yesterday.

I've noticed the breaks are shorter this year. I can't get to the bathroom and back before they're back on.

Or you could be getting older.  # of pees and pee duration both go up with age, I have found.

John Means: 3 1/3 IP, 4 runs surrendered while he was pitching (3 charged to Bundy), 2 scoreless innings, 1 inning surrendering a solo dinger, and got out of the bottom of the 4th bases loaded 2 outs jam with a lead.

A few of his deliveries looked to REALLY fool the Yankees. Deception pitcher. But when they aren't fooled, like Sanchez, it goes a long way.

He threw 80 pitches. That's a LOT for a reliever.

I say Means did a good job.

It sounded like he used to be a starter, listening to the commentary.

They definitely stretched him out this spring.
