Boy am I glad the Yankees chose this guy over Weaver to start the second game of the double-header. He did a fine job in his debut, but as of right now, it looks more like he'd be better off in the bullpen (if they even keep him around at all--they're probably going to ship him back down to AAA Columbus again).
Speaking of the bullpen, once again I'm left in awe of their absurd performance. Why is anyone bothering with Sterling Hitchcock again?
Oh great, the Yankees find another good pitcher (sob).

Oliva: You are the weakest link! Goodbye!
Stewie: Ahahaha. Oh God, that's funny. That's really funny. You write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And ye...ye..yet you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!
Claussen looked good, but remember, this is the Mets he beat. And he's probably going to get demoted this week, but if he keeps up his good performances in Columbus, he should be in the rotation next season with Clemens and (maybe) Wells gone.
Seeing the video of the incident, it looks like Offerman swung and missed but knocked the ump over anyway. The ump fell to avoid the punch, though some may say he overracted to it (I won't; if you were in his position, would you really take that punch?)....
