Almost perfect


It is incredibly tense to be sitting at Yankee Stadium during the 8th inning of a perfect game. When Ben Broussard launched that home run, the Stadium collectively sighed in disappointment and then gave Chien Ming Wang one of the best standing ovations in a long time. Why Joe Torre uses Brian Bruney in the 9th inning of a six-run game but not in the 5th yesterday is well beyond me.

    In other good news (sorry guys, best place I could find to leave this comment and figured you’d want to know), the MRI on Hughes was “better than expected”, according to CBS Sportsline.
