Last post, I asked the Yankees where the evil was. There it is! Well, A-Rod, that was really, really low. Some might say it was clever, it was something ballsy to win the game. But if it was really an okay thing to do, wouldn't more guys do it? It's not like it's hard to do, like stealing signs or something. I guarantee he wouldn't try that if Troy was at third. And the response should've been a plunking of an already sore Giambi. So Giambi is Arod's problem, on top of whatever fun things the Jays are going to do to him in July. They all sat on the bench after the game, watching the Yanks high five after their win. Normally, they file out quickly.
Two outs, Posada pops up to 3B Howie Clark. All of a sudden, Clark pulls off. Ball drops. Run scores. Replays show A-Rod yelling "MINE!" to Clark. Clark thinks it's JMac, pulls off. ARod grins like a stupid kid, while Gibby protests.
Officialy, if a player is guilty of interference, he is out. There is a big section on interference in the official rules, but nothing specifically on yelling at the defense. However, there are several mentions of prohibiting conduct that creates confusion.
It was a good game until then. Jesse Litsch was rocked in the first inning and only lasted 2/3 of an inning. But Brian "Bitch,Please" Tallet, Sparrow (who was finally used after 11 days of dust gathering) and Jason Frasor all pitched decently. Lexi, Stairs and JMac contributed HRs for the Jays 5 runs.
