The Rejuvenation of ARod and the Yankees

Last night, the Yankees and the Red Sox finished off a weekend series in Boston that was filled with the usual fanfare and fireworks of the greatest rivalry in all of sports. The game was a high scoring affair in which the Yankees came out on top 9-6. CC looked rocky again, giving up 6 ER in 5.1 IP (improved to 11-10 on the year). The Yankees bullpen looked strong, hurling 3.2 scoreless frames with the GOAT getting his 36th save of the year. Every Yankee got a hit except for Soriano (0-6) and Jayson Nix (0-1), even Chris Stewart got a hit and an RBI…Aliens

The real story coming from this game occurred in the second inning where Rex Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster threw four straight pitches at ARod, with the fourth pitch of the AB hitting ARod right on the left elbow. This resulted in warnings to both benches. Joe Girardi was furious, flying out of the dugout like a bat out of hell (obligatory Meatloaf reference) screaming at home plate umpire Brian O’Nora. He was clearly upset that Dempster was left in the game after intentionally throwing at ARod and being allowed to stay in the game. Girardi was ejected, but it got the Yankees blood pumping and fired them up. “Whether I agree with everything that’s going on, you do not throw at people and you don’t take the law into your own hands,” Girardi said. “You can’t just start taking potshots because you disagree with the way the system is set up.”

You’re right Joe…That IS bullshit and he IS a pussy.

Later on in the game, ARod got his revenge, hitting a home run off Dempster to straight away center to start the Yankees rally that would eventually give them the lead. “It was awesome. I was pretty excited,” Rodriguez said of the homer that started the Yankees’ go-ahead rally. “It was the ultimate payback.” When arriving at home plate, ARod delivered an even bigger jab to the Boston faithful, imitating David Ortiz’s point to the heavens. It was a big ‘Fuck You’ moment from ARod and will hopefully spark the rest of the Yankees season.

This was a huge game for the boys in pinstripes.  They took two of three from the first place Sox, moving within 7.5 in the East and 6 back in the Wild Card. The ejection by Girardi in the second will prove to be one of the turning points in the season. It showed that their manager, regardless of off the field issues and injuries still believes in this team and supports his players. It was the needed spark to light a fire under everyone’s ass (the proverbial “Michaels Secret stuff”, if you will) .
