Thank You, Birthday Santa
Thursday, August 30, 2007
While the Yankees Chick values hard work as much as any sadistic boot-camp drill sargeant, I sincerely hope that you all have been taking some time off work this week (or at least busting out your MLBTV subscription at your desk) to bear witness to what may amount to the key to the Yankees' post-season dreams. After blowing the series against the Tigers and hammering a couple of strong nails into their season coffin, the boys played gracious host to the new Yankees Red Sawx and graciously swept the ugly red socks right off of them. They hit well, striking first in all 3 games, and flexed some non-steroided muscle (2 homers by Cano and 1 each for Jeet, Demon, and A-Rod), but the most promising thing about this series is that the Yanks won these games on pitching. Pettitte, Rocket, and the Wangster all earned themselves W's and the bullpen did a great job of actually maintaining the lead (except for Farnsworthless, who very nearly blew it yesterday, but that is to be expected - that doofus should not be trusted any more than a Republican Senator denying classy airport bathroom encounters), leading me to believe there may truly be a chance that the many implosions and injuries suffered by the pitching staff may not damn the team after all. What the Yankees needed out of this series was a confidence booster - and I could not have scripted the outcome better!

    just a lil comment...you have the Blue Jays coming into to town for Friday's game. Change that to the Devil Rays. You got the starting pitcher right though.

    I think I remember you saying it was your birthday.

    So happy birthday!!

    We'll get you guys in Boston in 2 weeks. Should be interesting to see what happens with the Joba thing.

    For the record, I don't think he was throwing at him.

    Definitly a good 3 games for the Yankees. They can't let up though.. The Seattle series is going to be huge, the stadium should be rocking.

    1) Youk was spouting off at third, and then from the dugout, on the out-of-the-basepath play. Considering A-Rod was involved, who knows what he was saying (or what was said from the bench)

    2) Joba got his attention

    3) Youk spouted off, then stepped out right when Joba was about to go into his delivery.

    4) Joba let him know how he felt about that.

    If he'd wanted to actually hit him, he would have.

    We're hearing a lot of 'I guess we'll never know for sure' or 'Maybe only one or two people on the Yankees knew what he was really trying to do'..

    But you definitly get the feeling that the Saux assume he was trying to hit him, and thats the conclusion they're going to take into the next series.

    Well, MLB suspended him, so I guess Selig thinks he knows for sure.

    2 game suspension. A perfect fit for the Joba Rules, since he threw more than one inning.

    If Jujufruit actually had hit Youkilis, Youk would have killed him in a fight. The guy's arm can't take more than 5 pitches a night, he knows better than to hit Youk.

    While getting swept any time does suck, it sucked less with a cooshy lead. If it was a 4-game lead down to 1 i would have been crapping myself for sure, haha. And since that UGLY week, we've gained 2 back, so my confidence level is back to it's prior highs.

    Oh, and honestly - three AMAZING games. All were close, all were well played. Damn good series!
