Top Ten Tuesdays: WHYYYYYYY?!
Tuesday, June 10, 2008
When A-Rod hit that 2-run bomb in the 7th to tie the game yesterday afternoon, I was all set to write a post discussing the scrappy nature of the Yanks' play over the last week or so. Sadly, 'twas not to be - such a post shall have to wait for another day. Instead of being jazzed and proud over another come-from-behinder, my emotions have slid down to the other end of the spectrum: dwelling-ville.

In "honor" of this obnoxious and wholly unwelcome feeling, I've prepared a Top Ten highlighting all the Yankee happenings that have sent me spiraling into depressions of varying depths throughout the year.

Top Ten Depression-Inducing Disappointments

10) Hughsie's disappointing contributions to the rotation
9) Dandy Andy's struggles
8) Jeter's boo-boo
7) A-Rod's missed playing time
6) Ian Kennedy's second bad start. And third... and... the rest of them.
5) Jorgie Porgie Pudding and Pie's 30+ day vacation at the DL Resort and Casino.
4) ...And the backup catcher issues that followed in his wake.
3) Cano's failure to recall the physics of a bat hitting a ball and making it go places where there are no fielders.
2) The Joba-less bullpen
1) Pavano.

    Hey Chickers,

    Wow! Bummer on the top ten list there.

    here's my top ten reasons why the Sox are in first place:

    1) Beckett out a few weeks hurt
    2) Lowell out a few weeks hurt
    3) Dice-K out a few weeks hurt
    4) Papi out a few weeks hurt
    5) Manny out a few games hurt
    6) JD out a few games hurt
    7) Schill... just out totally!
    8) Buchholz out a few weeks hurt
    9) Ellsbury out a few games hurt

    and lastley

    10)Good teams find a way to win...hurt or not!

    REPEAT RED SOX 2008!!!!!!

    quit you'e complaining!

    Enjoy the games in NY for what they are: An over-the-hill bunch with no #1 starter, no bullpen and no chemistry and no killer instinct because they're all "fat cats"

    I don't think Pavano deserves the biggest (#1) disappointment. In recent memory, he has never given us anything to look forward to, thus making him the perpetual disappointment. He should be a staple at #10.

    I gotta agree on Pavano... he's just a perennial disappointment.

    Pavano should still be disappointment #1 even long after he retires.
