Here we are at the Willie Wilson International Airport in Kansas City waiting to head to Toronto via Chicago.
I’ll check back in from Canada later in the day. So you’re out of luck if you were expecting to waste your work day reading my pithy comments.
There were no flights out of KC last night, which was initially annoying. But after I got done writing at the ballpark, I checked into a hotel at the airport and a few of us got together to watch the Giants game over dinner and a few drinks. It turned into a good time.
It looks like the Yankees-Red Sox series coming up this weekend will have some prime-time pitching matchups:
Friday: Pettitte vs. Matsuzaka
Saturday: Wang vs. Beckett
Sunday: Clemens vs. Schilling
The Yankees are a long shot for the division but these games could well be previews for the ALCS.
OK, they’re calling the flight. Catch you from Canada.
