Top Ten Tuesdays, Vol I: Yeah, They Lost
Tuesday, October 09, 2007
Throughout the second half of the season I did a (approximately) weekly "Rest O' The League Round-Up" report during which I would run through the other 29 MLB teams and sum up the goings-on in their neck of the woods in 10 words or less. I quite enjoyed writing those listies, but now that baseball is over for all but 4 teams and will be over entirely in just a couple weeks, there is really not much sense in attempting to come up with even 10 words to say about each team (right now the 10 words for most of the teams would be "Season dunzo. Golf, Wii, and 'Rock of Love' marathon time"), I have been forced to think up an alternative list-related post I can utilize here whilst we patiently await for the return of the Rest O' The League Round-Ups (oh yeah, and baseball itself). Here, then, in the stead of my beloved Rest O' The League Round-Up is the inaugural edition its off-season replacement, Top Ten Tuesdays:

Top 10 Reasons the Yanks' season ended in round 1 of the playoffs (again):
10. Despite my conviction that he was indeed a super-robot from the planet Nowalks, Joba turned out to be human after all.
9. Bad luck on three calls in game 4. Yes, umps make mistakes all the time, and the Yanks - like any team - have been the benefactor of bad calls from time to time, too... it was just plain and simple bad luck that those three mistakes all happened in the most important game of the Yanks' season.
8. Jeter and Jorgie realized that in all the years they've been with the team, they had been good in way too many post-seasons. Clearly a break was needed. (Yeah, that's sarcasm.)
7. Gnats. Midges. Whatever the hell you Ohio-ites call them. I call them goddammutherfucking bugs.
6. Wang just did not have it. He didn't have it in game 1 and he sure as hell did not have it in game 4. Is he a good pitcher? Yes. Was he an integral part of the Yanks' regular season success? Absolutely. Did he blow it big time in the ALDS. Unquestionably, yes.
5. Matsui should not have been starting game 1 or 2. When a player has a bum knee, why waste a lineup spot?! He could have easily been brought in later in the game.
4. Big Stein is a jackass of even greater proportions than I had realized.
3. ABYSMAL hitting with RISP.
2. Scooter the squirrel was nowhere to be found.
1. Cleveland played their goddamn hearts out and pitched circles around the Yanks. They absolutely, 100% deserved to advance, and I have to tip my nonexistent hat to them.

That's my ten... hit me with a hundred more in the comments section!!! (and if you want to think happy thoughts with me, regale us with those tales over here)

    "2. Scooter the squirrel was nowhere to be found."

    There was a black squirrel in the stands right before the start of Game 3. I was sitting in my seat in Tier Reserve 19 and it ran down from the top of the upper deck all the way down to the Tier Box section and then over onto the rotating ad sign.

    Obviously the Yankees won that game.

    I am a Sox fan (sorry!) But I have to thank you for not blaimg Joe Torre. He is a class act and blaming him is really sad. The Boss and the GM are more responsible for this than he is. Hope you get a better owner!!!

    Bob Shepherd on D.L. - Classiest Yankees of all time. Perhaps you can update us on the condition of the "Voice of the Yankees"?

    Glad to see some class on your #1. People keep talking like "the Yankees lost", when really, a talented Cleveland team WON.
