Major story about my boy Rocker in ESPN. You'd be surprised at how many New Yorkers want this guy to succeed. Not because we agree with the things he said years ago, but because we can relate to someone screwing up and wanting a chance to redeem himself.
The Yankees did not get the rain I thought they needed on Saturday, but they got something better--a complete game shutout from Mike Mussina. I think this guy is more of a mouse than a moose, but he certainly delivered the goods on Saturday.
On Sunday, deadbeat wall-puncher Kevin Brown pitched most of a second consecutive shutout, which is also good. This team still has major problems, but it was a good weekend after all.
I will be up at Yankee Stadium for Wednesday's day game vs Ichiro and the Mariners.
Yet another bad start for Tom Glavine, a lost soul on the mound. Sunday's loss leaves them at 17-15; not bad.
