    Team Hero, July 27, 2012 vs Red Sox

    Hard to pick a hero in a game like this. I'm tempted to give it to Teixeira:

    The Yankees scored three runs in the first to take a 3-1 lead, the last two on a homer by Raul Ibanez. But it should’ve still been 1-0 Boston.

    “I think Tex caused that inning to happen by his hustle,” Ibanez said.

    Teixeira hit into what should’ve been an inning-ending 4-6-3 double play. But shortstop Mike Aviles was slow in turning it.

    “Teixeira, you have to give him credit for running out that ball like he did, beating that double play,” Bobby Valentine said.

    “I think it turned the game a little bit,” Joe Girardi said.

    “With my speed, I always feel like I have a chance to beat it out,” Teixeira deadpanned.
    That play scored one run, and a couple of innings later, Teixeira also hit a long fly ball with a runner on third, resulting in another RBI. But all that doesn't make for good caps.

    So I'll give co-Team Hero to the three guys who hit home runs:
    Raul Ibanez ...

    Russell Martin ...

    ... and the Grand Slam guy, Curtis Granderson!

    Honorable Mention: Phil Hughes. Good game, despite the three solo home runs.

    My hero for all wins over the Sox right now is the guy who decided not to bring Francona back and replace him with Bobby V. That guy is my hero.

    Honourable mention: our team.

    TH: Ibanez
    HM: Granderson, Martin, Hughes
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes
