The kid pitched like he’s been in the majors for much longer than a week, didn’t he? I was really impressed with how he handled the White Sox today. And thanks to the good news about Pettitte’s latest bullpen session, I’m starting to feel better about the rotation. Well, a little better. We didn’t get much offense going after yesterday’s bat fest, but Thames kept on bashing the ball and Cervelli had a welcome burst of production. Even without Tex and A-Rod in the lineup, this team managed to eek out the series anyway. Clap clap clap for that.
Back to Nova, I’m wondering if the Yankees have “Nova Rules” in place, like they did for Joba and do for Huuughes, and if so what they are. Here are my guesses:
#1) Nova can’t stay out later than midnight.
#2) Nova must avoid alcoholic beverages, strip clubs and other paths of ruination.
#3) Nova has a calories limit, but the exact number isn’t being announced.
#4) Nova can watch television, but only “Yankeeographies” and ABC Family.
#5) Nova may not inject himself or anyone else with B-12 shots but is permitted to squirt people with this.
