Athletics 2, Yankees 0: Knicks Win!

I'm sorry, I didn't watch the Yankee game at all. I was too busy nearly having a heart attack watching the Knicks nearly blow a 26-point lead to the Boston Celtics. Thankfully, they didn't. They won their game and their series and have advanced to the second round to meet the Pacers.

As for the Yankees, nothing good happened in tonight's game. Obviously, because they were shut out by a guy who had a 4.65 ERA coming into tonight's game.

Not that ERA is the be all, end all of pitching stats but a 4.65 is still pretty terrible. CC Sabathia gave up a home run on the first pitch he threw and it didn't get better for the Yankees after that.

But as they say, and as I've said many times before, on to the next one. And the next one is tomorrow afternoon when our old friend Bartolo Colon faces off against Phil Hughes.
