So that was kinda cool today, eh? Gotta give it up to Colin Curtis not just for hitting his first career homer, but for how he did it. Brett Gardner got tossed in the middle of an at-bat, Curtis assumed an 0-2 count, takes three pitches off the plate before crushing a fastball to right. He hasn’t played much, but when he has, Lil’ CC has put together some real quality at-bats. He’s been a pleasant surprise.
If you want to watch the game again, the encore is on YES at 7pm ET. Otherwise you could watch Stephen Strasburg face the Reds on ESPN (also 7pm ET), though I have to say I’m kinda sick of the kid given how much the MSM has smothered him with attention. I guess this is how non-Yankee fans felt about Joba back in the day. Anyway, here’s the open thread, go to town.
