Ahh, doesn't a victory make everything look much prettier in the morning?
Wednesday's 8-4 victory over Atlanta featured good pitching, a few badly-needed clutch hits, a tirade by Joe Girardi and some laughter over a Mariano Rivera at-bat. Much better than the ugliness of the past few days.
Here are a few stories around the Yankee Universe today.
- Girardi talks about his ejection.
"If they're going to score eight runs after I get ejected, I'll take the lineup card out tomorrow."
- The Yankees enjoyed Rivera's at-bat -- even if he had promised he would not swing.
- GM Brian Cashman made a rare appearance at a road game Wednesday. He spoke to the hitters while he was in town.
- CC Sabathia pronounced himself ready for Friday's scheduled start after throwing a bullpen session Wednesday.
"I was able to get loose, I was able to get extended and everything felt good," Sabathia said. "I cut it loose at the end and didn't feel anything. I feel like I'll be fine."
