I Hate You
Thursday, April 05, 2007
My quality of life improves by a margin of approximately 27.5% the moment baseball begins each year, largely because it gives me something to do during the many, many boring hours of my day. The downside to occupying the majority of my brainspace with all things baseball is that not all things baseball are entirely pleasant; in fact, there are many things that make the Yankees Chick a very bitter lady. Although the season started just 4 days ago, the Baseball Gods have already found a few ways to anger me....

New York Weather: It's sunny and toasty warm here in San Diego... I'm ready to watch baseball, and waiting 6 months for the first game of the season only to see the second game get rained out is just too depressing.

The Red Sox: Yes, Dice-K is great. WE GET IT. Unfortunately for you, Boston, there is only 1 of him, and he can't pitch every day.

Barry Bonds: I wish pitchers would just start lobbing some easy balls right down broadway for him so he could break the record and we could all stop caring.

Johnny Damon's calf muscle: Someone needs to get that kid some potassium supplements or at the very least a banana. It is far too early in the year to be sending starters to the DL.

A-Rod boo-ers: You people make me sick. It's April 5th

Now that I've successfully transferred my bitterness on to you innocent souls, I am ready to rest my tired head and dream of the day that Steinbrenner leaves all the decision-making power to the Yankees Chick...

    If you are living in San Diego, you can't complain about the weather in the northeast. Try living through it first :-)

    At least we aren't like Detroit and called a game for the cold! Football players are laughing right now.

    Don't worry about Dice-K (Can you have a worst nickname?). He'll breeze through the league at first because the scouting reports are thin and hitters aren't used to him. But his second and third time through the league will be much harder. For examples look at King Felix's or Zack Duke's first time through and then compare that against their second and third time around. Even the Fat Toad didn't look so bad the first few games. Besides, Dice-K's not used to a 162 game season, or a five man rotation. He'll be wearing down just when Boston needs him the most come September and October.

    Adam, the big difference is Dice-K is an experience big league, albeit Japanese league, pitcher. I think he'll do fine, but everyone has to stop going ga-ga over a game against the Royals.

    Where you used to be able to kill Pedro (those pitch counts that tired him out and the lack of Boston offense to support him against you), Francona won't be able to yank Dice-K since his pitch count is 50 pitches higher with accuracy and velocity.

    Now if the offense chooses to play... then it could get ugly that 1 game out of 5.

    Fear the gyroball.
    Fear a circa 2003 Beckett and 2004 era Schilling.
    and pray that Wakefield's knuckler isn't dancing in the wind.

    It's going to be a great season, so just hang tough through the bad weather and hope for the best.

    Baseball in October is far better than baseball now.

    There is no gyroball

    Mantlemurcer, I'm not saying that Dice-K will suck the second or third time around, just that he won't look as phenomenal.

    Yeah Him, his projected pitch count ceiling is overrated. He was pitching against competition that was around the level of AAA. Even Jaret Wright could have consistently gone deep into the game.

    Remember, he faced the Royals. There is not a single player on that team that would start for the Yankees, other than perhaps Shealy at first.

    "A-Rod boo-ers: You people make me sick. It's April 5th"

    Yeah, seriously, get a clue you clowns. Why are you even at a baseball game if you don't understand how baseball works?

    And A-Rod came through in the clutch today! (I'll let the Yankees Chick report on it.)

    My Dear,

    You are very cute, very clever, and a Yankees fan.
    The feminine trifecta.

    Keep up the good work.
    Don't forget to post pics of yourself (so we don't forget waht you look like).

    This comment comes 15 minutes after THE AROD BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What a day.
