“I love the way the Yankees are playing ball,” he told the guys gathered around Juan Carlos’s coffee cart. “They are tough to beat and it’s fun to watch.”
“I can’t wait for tonight’s first pitch,” Javier said. “Last night I heard A-Rod say, ‘Every game is the most important game.’
“That’s all I want from my team,” Javier continued. “And I think we can expect that the rest of the way.”
They all smiled.
