Johnny Mac makes his first start!

How awesome was it to see John McDonald patrolling the infield against the Yankees last night? Johnny Mac manned 2nd base to allow Aaron Hill a relatively stress free game (Hill slid into the DH spot.) This season, watching McDonald run onto the field at the beginning of a contest has been non-existent, remarkably Thursday marked his first start in 37 games this campaign.

Even though you'd expect the guy to be a little bit rusty, especially because he wasn't in his customary spot at shortstop, he was in fine form, making several nice plays. He even added a single at the dish.

How incredible was it to have McDonald in the starting lineup? Everyone loves Johnny Mac! Let's hope we are treated to more in the coming weeks.
