“Yeah, I’ve heard this is baseball’s biggest stage. It’s the fourteenth inning and you need a run to win the game? I mean, I was on the Padres this morning… got traded… packed… shaved… flew to the Big Apple… and showed up late the game, but here I am. Sure, I’ll get you that run. Get your gatorade ready.” – Chase Headley, probably.
What a stud. First ever walk-off Yankees victory that I loved every second of… so happy for Chase Headley. All baby-faced and adorable. That walk-off means that Yankees fans are guaranteed to love Chase… at least until tonight.
Like I said… instant legend.
