The pitching matchup was Michael Pineda against Ubaldo Jimenez. The Yankee bats came alive with 2 home runs by Brett Gardiner. Austin Romine and Aaron Judge also homered as the Bronx Bombers coasted to a 12-4 victory. Through the "magic" of Facebook I found out that my brother-in-law Keith and nephew Scott were also at the game, but our seats were too far apart to meet with them.

- David Wright - we don't know when or even if he'll be back
- Steven Matz - we need a good left handed pitcher
- Seth Lugo - he did well at the end of last season
- Noah Syndergaard - he missed his start yesterday because of a dead arm. We don't know how serious this is.
- Lucas Duda - hopefully, he'll be back soon
- Wilmer Flores - infection
- Yoenis Cespedes - hamstring problem
Let's hope for the best.

The hit version of Mr. Tambourine Man was sung by Roger McGuinn. Gene Clark was the first original Byrd to leave the group to become a solo artist. His version of Mr. Tambourine Man is out of this world. Give it a listen.

I usually take the Q34, Q44 or Q20 from the end of the #7 line for one mile to my home. Today there was gridlock on Main Street from Roosevelt Avenue to Northern Blvd. Likewise, the traffic on Northern Blvd was at a standstill for a mile.
I think I did the wise thing by walking that last mile. It is just aggravating to stand in a crowded bus while it is stuck in traffic.
I think this qualifies for an "Oy Vey."

Starting pitcher Jacob deGrom and 3 relievers struck out 15 Nats, but the hitting just couldn't get going. The Mets only had 1 run with just two hits and lost 3-1. Tomorrow is another day.
It worked out that Karen's birthday is one day after mine. I guess that fellow Taurean's are compatible, I think he helped that both of us are Met fans. We went to our first game in together in 1981and were married in 1983.
To celebrate we are going to see the Mets play the Washington Nationals at Citifield later today,
