Billy Crystal Uses Comedic Powers to Summon Rains, Jankees 4-1

Even with the loss today, the trip to New York was pretty successful, considering the last homestand at least. Cueto was throwing gas until it started raining and the Polish Nightmare made his weekly appearance. Affeldt made sure his ERA returned to the accustomed area.

D.A.R.Y.L made a nice debut on Saturday, continually working out of trouble and holding the Yankee offense scoreless. The bullpen even kept up their end of the bargain, locking things down securing a shut out. And of course Volquez was lights out Friday, that's a win always.

Today we got to see the return of Jeff Keppinger but Eddie also took some time off after experiencing some spasm. That brought on old friend and, 2008 last guy on the bench, Javy Valentin to play third base for the first time in his big league career. Sadly, he didn't get the opportunity to make an errant throws to first. Maybe next week. The east coast swing heads up to Tononto next. Votto's going to teach the guys about Molson Light and why everyone in Canada wears denim. "That is what we call a Canadian Tuxedo which cost aboot 15 beaver pelts." Nice weekend gang, keep it up. Donkey's mad as hell and he's not going to take it any more.
