Saturday Night Victory Thread

The Yankees won!

Shane Greene pitched really well to earn the victory against the first place Orioles – 7.1 IP, 4 H, 0 ER/R, 2 BB and 9 K- Brian McCann seems to have remembered how to pitch and David Robertson shut the door in the ninth to earn his 23rd save in 25 tries.

So use this open thread to talk about how great Greene was, or how Robby Thomson has turned into Dale Sveum at third base – so many guys are getting thrown out at the plate this season. The Yankees actually lead the league in that stat.

Or talk about how well Robertson is doing in the closer role.

Or maybe you’d like to reminisce about Disco Demolition Night which occurred 35 years ago this evening in Chicago. I was alive at the time but don’t remember much about it.

And remember to be respectful to your fellow IIATMS readers. Enjoy!
