What a game. Frankly, like most Yankees fans the Torre stories were getting pretty tiresome. CC put that to rest with a dominating game of 8 IP 4 H 1 R 3 BB 7 K for his 9th win.

When he hit Padilla after Padilla had drilled Cano, it was priceless. Gutless Padilla tried to stare down CC but thought the better of it and slinked off to first base. CC was giving him the peanut look* (see below) and that was that.

A-Rod knocked in both runs with a double and home run. Looks like he’s starting to round into form.

Three up. Three down. Three K’s. Freaking dominating. Now let’s see if AJ can turn it around. There was talk that he was tipping his pitches. We’ll see.

* A number of years ago, I was at a Mets-D’Backs game in AZ with my dad, brother-in-law Rick and son Marco. My father had a bag of peanuts that he was sharing with us. All of a sudden he saw a strange hand reach into the bag. He turned and gave this drunk guy who decided to help himself  a look that frightened Rick. To this day, we refer to a really scary look as “The Peanut Look.”
