Where is Erik Hinske when you need him?

4-2 Yankees in the top of the 8th.

4,234 chances to score with the bases loaded for the Red Sox; at least it seems that way.

Secretly I was hoping for Joba to buzz Youk's tower and in 2.6 seconds get turned into a human Popsicle with a Louisville slugger but cooler heads prevailed.

Okajima imploded in the 7th and turned a 2-2 tie into a 4-2 MFY lead but I've still got faith. That, plus unless your name is Mariano Rivera the Yankee bullpen couldn't retire the bottom third of the Bad News Bears.

I'm heading to the couch to hunker down behind it for now, so here's to late inning comebacks and Keeping the Fair.

Honestly, it's really too early in the season for me to be eating TUMS by the hand full and pacing the living room.

May the MLB schedule makers come down with Montezuma's Revenge sometime in the very near future.

This bites. But getting to Rivera was worth it.

Getting the walkoff from Youk was even more worth it!

Hope you didn't miss it.

And Eric Hinske says Hi! :)

Saw it, John. Blinking and bleary eyed but I saw it!
