I Can't Even Write Like a Normal Human
Friday, August 22, 2008
Generally speaking, I'd say that approximately 87% of my blog posts contain at least one or two cogent thoughts, whether I'm explaining the consequences of some sort of devastating injury or my thoughts on an awesome trade (sorry, Farnsworthless). Today, though... no such luck. The season has spiraled downhill in such a ridiculous fashion (it actually has the potential to be comical, if it weren't so sickening) that I find myself incapable of retaining any semblance of rationale, calm, or writing ability (do you like how I imply that I usually DO possess some ability? Ha!).

That said, let's take this post in a direction more akin to free-floating hostility and stream of consciousness reporting...

...I know that lamenting the fact that the Yanks may not make the playoffs sounds very spoiled, but what fan doesn't want their team to make the post-season - regardless of how many times they've been there before? What, am I just supposed to sit back and console myself with the fact that they DID indeed win a lot over the past 15 years and be happy for other teams? The YCBF (a dirty dirty Mets fan) seems to think so. False.

...I guess I am sort of happy for the Rays. They're a fun team to watch and they've been working on their roster for years, sans big bucks. No such love for the Angels or Red Sox.

...Has anyone else noticed that this team has essentially become the Braves, making the playoffs every year and FAILING? The hell?

...At least the Jeet has returned to good form. As usual, he's doing his best to carry his team through tough times.

...Johnny Damon in center is driving me absolutely batty. I don't even hold his disgusting defense against him personally. He shouldn't be out there in the first place. I understand that Matsui has to be the DH, leaving no other place for JD but in the field, but that doesn't make it any easier to watch. Tis a sad state of affairs.

...I am so disappointed in Cano. He is so much better than this. Did he just give up? Was his performance over the past couple years due solely to the hugs of Joe Torre?

...The fate of Joba seems like a cruel joke. How often is it that a reliever turns into a starter with essentially ZERO adjustment time - no pathetic outings, the ability to go deep in the game, etc?

...Speaking of cruel jokes, what the F is wrong with Hughes and I-Ken? I know it's rare that even a top prospect ends up living up to his hype, but we were led to believe these dudes were sure things. I honestly expected at least ONE of them to contribute SOMETHING this year. I don't think there's a Yanks fan amongst us that didn't think exackle the same thing. The fact that neither of them was even seriously considered to pitch on Saturday speaks volumes about the lack of confidence the Girardino et al have in them.

...While I'm not exactly thrilled about the great C-Pav making a return to the mound, I'm trying to remain positive - I've even brought back the seldom-used "Pavano Must LIVE" tag. We have zero other options. He's worked hard (allegedly). I'd say there's a decent chance he pitches well. Plenty of pitchers come back from Tommy John surg raring to go, no?

...Does anyone else find themselves rooting for the Dodgers a bit now that Torre and Mattingly are at the helm of that ship?

...Perhaps I'm just living in a state of denial, but I'm not ready to give up just yet. Let's give them a couple more weeks. They might still have it in them.

    YC, I think it is time to give up. The players have given up, Steinbrenner has given up, and 96% of the fans have given up. Throw in the towel and just enjoy the rest of summer.

    The YCBF is always very compassionate and reassuring to the YC, in all aspects of life. Except this one. Sorry, I can't help but bask in the glory of your team finally failing :)

    No true fan of any team gives up until their team is mathematically out of the race. Yankees Chick, continue your hope because even though they are almost out for the count the Yanks can easily pull off 20wins to finish the season.

    With help from the Jays and Orioles as spoilers the Yanks might bring some playoff baseball to the old building. For some odd reason I can't help but think that the old Yankee gods will intervene and give the house that Ruth built one more shot at glory.

    It just wouldn't feel right if there wasn't playoff baseball in the Bronx for this season. This is coming from a non-Yankee fan too.

    If they Yanks played in the NL West, they would make the playoffs. I don't wish Joe any ilk, but really he is in the easiest division, and just over .500 makes the playoffs.

    The NEW Joe has done a decent job with what he has been given. He didnt put the players out there. We have how many guys ready for the retirement fields? Then have some slugos taking up roster? MELK, CANO, PITCHING STAFF, except Andy, Moose, MO.
