Helloooo one and all. Max here taking over the blogging duties for the morning. Boomer and Craig kicked off Monday morning’s extravaganza on the heels of a great weekend of baseball in NYC. The Yankees took Round 2 of the Subway Series by winning the rubber game of their 3-game set with the Mets at Citi Field.
Boomer and Craig, being the diehard Mets fans they are, were obviously less than thrilled with the outcome. But it was some of Terry Collins’ managerial decisions came to the forefront of their discussion about the series. The guys seemed to agree that the biggest mistake Collins made was leaving Miguel Batista in the game to face Robinson Cano in the 8th inning last night. Cano promptly hit a solo home run to dead center field to give the Yankees the lead and eventually the win.
Boomer and Craig also talk about how the marquee pitching match-up between R.A. Dickey and CC Sabathia failed to live up to the billing. Having said that, they both agreed that it was nice to see what the Mets’ scrappy lineup was able to do against CC.
They took a few calls and sang the praises of Yankees fill-in closer Rafael Soriano. The Neil Best article in Newsday about WFAN’s 25th Anniversary was also brought up. Namely, the fact that Craig has some major issues with it. He thinks it’s egregious that Steve Somers’ name was left out of the article. But more so than that, he has some comments for Eddie Scozzare, who was interviewed for the article. More on this later…
