♥ Cervelli Tastes Victory ♥ And I Love Him ♥

My Cervelli Came Through; I Love Him All Over Again

I was going to go to bed. But then I decided I would watch the rest of the game. Jeez, I am glad I did. The Yankees were indeed the Drama Club last night. And my baby was right in the middle of it. What a great moment. The Yankees won in walkoff fashion 5-4.

Pitching Analysis: Chad Gaudin started in place of Andy Pettitte last night, and he actually was pretty good. He went 5 & 2/3 innings of 3-run ball. For an emergency start by Chad Gaudin, I would say that is pretty good. Overall, Chad has performed well in pinstripes. The Yankees have won every start he pitched. Although he is not the hottest-looking guy like Mitre, I still love him. I can’t help it. Nice job, Chad! He needs an endearing nickname…Chaddy-waddy! Hmm…I guess that works for now.

Marte, Bruney, Coke, Hughes, and Mo finished out the game. Bruney was not too good. He failed to get an out and he allowed a run. Mo got the win. The pitchers did a nice job last night.

Defensive Analysis: The defense was pretty solid last night. Jeter made an error, but whatever. I still think he should win the Gold Glove, along with the rest of the Yankee infield. All of them are fabulous. Arod made a nice play in the 1st. Aaron Hill hit a sharp liner to Alex’s right, and he leaned over, fell a bit, and caught the ball. The “Hot Corner.” I think Arod does a nice job over there.

Offensive Analysis: The Yankees jumped out to an early lead in the 1st. Jeet led off with a walk, and Texy-wexy’s RBI double brought Jeter around to score. Matsui then knocked in Tex for a RBI of his own. 2-0 Yankees. The Yankee bats were silent for a long time. In the 8th, Matsui provided a spark. He hit a 2-run homer to tie the game at 4! Yankee Stadium magic!!! The Yankees were alive. 4-4.

Godzilla gives Yanks the chance for a walkoff.

The 9th is my favorite part. I am so glad I watched!!! Brett Gardner led off with a single and stole second. Jeter moved him over to third with a ground out. And then….then my baby came up….Francisco Cervelli…I was so excited that he rejoined the team as a September callup…but he never played…he never even started a game…but last night he got a chance… With a 1-2 count, I was beginning to doubt Cervelli’s chances. I really wanted him to be the hero. So Cervy delivered.

Yankees tangle in positive way thanks to Francisco Cervelli.

That’s my boy!♥!♥!♥

Francisco ripped a single into right field, which brought home Gardner, and brought out the Yankee dugout. And it brought out my screams of joy. Cervelli was so genuinely happy. He ran into right field, because he knew Melky and Cano were going to pummel him. It was beautiful to watch my love celebrate. He went over to Kim Jones, and asked, “Where is A.J.?” Aw. Don’t worry, he’s comin’, baby. As Kim asked Cervelli questions, A.J. stealthily approached. WHAM! The pie met Cervelli’s adorable face, and he put his hands up in the air, proud to be pied. He said, “Ohh, I love the moment” with the cutest accent and smile. Cervelli then licked a bit of the cream that was on his face, and said it tasted good. That’s the taste of victory, my love. It always tastes good.

Aw…his first taste of victory pie…I think I’m going to cry…I am so proud of him!!!

I think Francisco Cervelli deserves much more playing time. You all saw what he did last night. No offense to Molina, but do you think he would have done that? I don’t. Cervelli’s enthusiasm and his way of playing the game brings a spark to the club. I hope he remains a Yankee forever. It would be unwise for the Yankees to let him go.

What a game. What a game, what a game, what a game! Tuesday night, my Yankee-crush failed. But last night, my Yankee-crush succeeded. I am so proud and happy for Cervelli. Words can’t describe the emotions I felt when he won it for us. The heroes are Hideki Matsui, for his clutchness, Brett Gardner, for that timely stolen base, and my love, Francisco Cervelli, for obvious reasons. The Smelly Sox who cheat at Fenway won also, but I don’t give a sh!t. Nothing can dampen my spirits after last night’s game. Nothing at all. My Yanks are off tonight, which means I am doing a cutie post tomorrow. I promise I will do one. Tomorrow is Friday, and I will have all the time in the world to do it.

 Ahh….Life is sweet….and the taste of victory makes it even sweeter. GO YANKEES!!!

Your sweetheart really came through last night. It was so much fun watching him run away from Cano, Melky and the others as they came running out of the dugout to jump up on him. Hilarious! And a great win for the Yanks as they head west to my part of the country. I sure hope they do well here.

Aw, Virginia! Your boo boo came through in the clutch! I can imagine how happy you are/were! I was smiling from ear to ear and laughing so hard when he started running into right field – too funny! He deserved the pie in the face, no doubt about it. Too bad these next games aren’t in the Bronx – I’d love to have some more pie action. All I know is that our boys better get it going in the west, ’cause we won’t have the walk-off to fall back on!

Last night was great! When I saw who was coming up in the bottom of the ninth, I wanted Cervelli to get a chance so much. Of course, I would have loved for Jeter to get pied too (or Brett, for that matter… I wanted a win in any way), but maybe that will come later! When he came up to bat, I wanted it so badly for him. I was so excited for Cervelli. To see his enthusiasm and energy and love for the game is just great. Hopefully, we will see him in pinstripes for a long, long time.

Virginia,
After your description, I just got to watch the highlights and hear that accent from your cutie.
