CC "Chubby Cheeks" Sabathia powered the New York Yankee's defense past the LA Angels while A-Rod, Jeter, Cabrera, and, can you believe it, Damon, pounded the Angels with their bats in last night's 100 to 1 win – okay, okay, it was 10 to 1, but the pummeling was so severe that it must have felt like 100 to 1 to the Angels.
"Chubby Cheeks" jiggled through all 9 innings making the case that pretty-boy, light-weight pitchers who cannot deliver should not be given starting assignments on our ballet team. He was, as his teammates described him, a monster. He delivered.
Haglund continues to convince many people that the startling resemblance of Yankee Manager Joe Girardi to Rudolph Nureyev is no coincidence. When you're watching the game Thursday night, look at Girardi's lean, Nureyev-like cheekbones, his lips, and his flashing eyes. It's Rudy.
