So the Yanks lose last night when Marco Scutaro hits a surprising three-run homer off Mariano Rivera. But let’s look at this a bit closer: It just so happens to be the day that Major League Baseball chooses to honor Jackie Robinson, with players across all of baseball wearing Robinson’s number 42 in homage. And Rivera just so happens to be the only active player who still wears number 42 after MLB officially retired it, since he was grandfathered in.
And add this to the mix: The score was 4-2 when Scutaro connected. That’s four to two.
The lesson here: F–k not with Jackie Robinson.
Oh, and this? This just sucks.
Also, looks like there’ll be baseball after all today at Fenway. Wily Mo in the line-up for Covelli.
