Yankee Bullpen Stellar in Win

It was the first Monday night in a LONG time that I had something to look forward to. Instead of procrastinating on my homework like I usually do, I made sure to get right to it, so I would be free for 7:00.

Oh, the beauty of baseball season.

The game didn’t disappoint. It was a good one, and the Yankees played very well. I know it’s waaaay early to say stuff like this, but they really look like a championship-caliber team, especially in last night’s 4-3 victory.

The Yanks didn’t have that much offense, but they got the big hits. A-Rod and Posada each had 2-run homers and were responsible for all of the Yankees’ 4 runs. A-Rod has gotten of to an amazing start so far this year…can you say MVP? (I know it’s early, but you heard it hear first!). And Posada…my Jo-Po. He has adjusted to his DH role very well.

Last night’s game was important, because it was Ivan Nova’s first start of the season. And unlike last year, Nova this year is here to stay. So it was important for him to show he belonged in the Bigs.

Nova said that he had a plan last night, and that he didn’t expect the Twins to even get 1 hit off him. Way to set the high-bar, Ivan!

                  

Well, Nova didn’t throw a no-no last night, but I thought he pitched wonderfully. He didn’t allow a hit until 2 outs into the 4th. I was worried a bit because he had trouble getting the final out – the Twins rallied with 2 outs and scored 2 runs that inning. Nova also allowed a run in the 5th, and before I knew it, the Twins crept their way back into the ballgame.

I was nervous when he went out to pitch the 6th, but Nova managed to make it out alive, and set himself up for the win. After striking out Jim Thome for the final out, Nova showed a little emotion on the mound with some fist pumps. Kind of reminded me of that old Joba Chamberlain…

SPEAKING of Joba, I’m in love with this bullpen. OMG. If the Yankees don’t have the best bullpen in baseball, then no one does. I’m betting on it:

THE YANKEES WILL FINISH 2011 WITH THE BEST BULLPEN IN ALL OF BASEBALL. 

Joba Chamberlain did his thing in the 7th, Rafael Soriano was stellar in the 8th, and Mariano Rivera was Mo in the 9th. These guys are so good, they need a name. People have been calling them, “Jo-So-Mo,” but that just doesn’t FLOW.

My name is better: Jobianamo.

Joba, Soriano, Mo.

Jobianamo.

7th, 8th, 9th.

Yankees win.

Jobianamo! I like it. I had to say it a couple times before it sounded right. But it does sound right.

With those three guys it becomes a 6 inning game for the starters. Awesome.

its always good to have strong back end support. with that trio, the yanks sure have it. If Texiera stays on the Mark (get it) and the starters are solid it will be a great season becaue Jobianomo will be there to close the door.

I don’t know if the Yanks have the best bullpen, but they’ve gotten off to a good start unlike the Red Sox and their big off season.

Well, sometimes it works… sometimes it doesn’t… like last night for example. Yikes!

Looks like you spoke too soon! Ahh, I’m kidding — I wouldn’t worry all that much about Soriano, even after last night.
