Perhaps I wrote off Chen prematurely, as he's now tossed two scoreless innings since the contretemps in the first. Still, the two-out rally the Yankees staged in the top of the third underscored his vulnerability the storm is coming. In the meantime, Andy Pettitte has had two innings of doing that thing he does. Pettitte's regular-season career may not yet amount to being worthy of the Hall of Fame, but his great post-season numbers have to count for a lot, and probably will push him over the line in the minds of some votes... And perhaps by then the HGH thing, which probably meant nothing anyway, will be nothing more than an irrelevant memory.
In other news, I just told one of my writers that I have only seen three episodes of "The Simpsons." He now thinks something is wrong me, but I've just gotta go against the grain with certain things.
Update: I seem to have jinxed Pettitte. Bases loaded with two outs.
Further Update: Bases no longer loaded, 2-1 Orioles, Pettitte no longer nominated for the Hall of Fame.
