Just got home from the Stadium a few minutes ago, read through all the comments, and decided to throw a few thoughts into the Intertubes before heading to bed.
So here we go, bullet point style:
We saw the best and worst of Melky Cabrera tonight. 2 great catches, 1 miss. A 7 pitch AB in the 3rd, a 10 pitch AB in the 6th, and then a 3 pitch K.
Giambi looked good in the field (for Giambi). He showed some smart baserunning and decent quickness to avoid the tag in the 7th.
Wang really battled himself early, but he settled down and was my star of the game.
The Yanks did a great job of adjusting to Halladay. The first time through the lineup they were taking a lot of first pitch strikes, but once he showed them that he was on his game, they got aggressive.
There's a "Regular Season Games Remaining" countdown clock at the Stadium. I don't know if they showed it on tv (I assume they would), but they had a big to-do with Steinbrenner pulling a large lever to take a number off the board once the game was official. I'm all for nostalgia; if I wanted a team that only existed in the moment I'd be a football fan. But nostalgia has to be earned, it has to be organic, and it has to be sincere. If their going to make a big show of this for every home game, it's going to annoy me more than that scratchy old recording of Kate Smith.
