The Twilight Zone


There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area we call the Twilight Zone."

Watching Rasner get hit with a ground ball to break his finger in the first inning made me think of the Twilight Zone. This season has been a trip to Bizzaroland. Some quick notes:

Mariano blows two late leads for losses and gives up a tie breaking HR to Seattle. Kastens breaks his leg on a a ball hit back to him. Wang, Mussina and Hughes all go down with injuries. Pavano finally pitches a great game and...OK...Carl is a bad example, but you get the point.

How many times have the Yankees lost a game when they had  fifteen hits? Damon has good range in center and he catches everything he runs down, so it was very weird seeing a deep drive from Wright go off the heal of his glove and over the stands for a two run HR.

Robinson Cano had three errors all year and makes three today. On one play he hit his own foot throwing to first after making a diving stab in the bottom of the eighth inning after the Yanks had scored four times to make it an 8-6 game. I watched the replay and if he makes a great play he might get Franco. Julio probably would have beat it out for an infield single and an RBI. That error brought in two runs, increasing the Mets lead to 10-6.

Farnsworth fails miserably again to hold the game close. After he complained about Clemens contract it might have been nice if he got out of the inning unscathed. The Yanks did score a run and threatened for more in the top of the ninth, but Wagner struck out Cano and Phelps to end the game with two men on.

On a positive note, they did pound the ball again so maybe it will carry over. Maybe?
