I saw very little of Friday night's game, but was of course thrilled to be able to get a six-inning "complete" game victory from Sabathia. Additionally, nine Ks? I guess someone forgot to tell Sabathia that it's still April.
I watched most of yesterday's game while bed-ridden with what was probably the worst stomach ailment I've ever had in my entire life. I don't know whether I got food poisoning or some sort of crazy 24-hour bug, but I woke up at 5am Saturday morning and proceeded to throw up on an hourly basis until around 2:30pm. Even after I was finally done throwing up, I was in terrible shape the rest of the day and could barely leave my room.
Thankfully I had the Yankees to cheer me up, on the strength of seven shutout innings from A.J. and more relentless offense. Also, loved seeing A-Rod finally get on the home run board. Additionally, I was wondering when the last time was that the Yankees won their first four series of the season, and thankfully RAB tells us that it was 1926(!)
The Yanks go for their first sweep of the young season this afternoon behind Andy Pettitte and his 0.75 ERA. It's almost surreal how well the team has started out so far, and the fact that the Yankees are beating up on the best teams in the AL while still getting considerably less-than-optimal production from their 2-3-4 hitters (Nick the Walk is hitting .176/.429/.324, although I'm obviously loving that OBP; Tex's line is an atrocious .100/.280/.125; and A-Rod is starting to get closer to where he should be, at .279/.367/.512) is just insane.
