Shape Up or SHIP OUT! And By That, I Mean SHIP OUT.
Friday, August 15, 2008
As I mentioned the other day, I've been one busy chickadee, spending approximately 29.7 hours per day doing homework and working like a responsible citizen. All this hard work leaves me with less time than ever to focus on my beautiful yet FAIL team, and it is a rare day in this wild time that I have a spare moment to read more than a headline or two of any news that isn't related to technology - it's truly a sad state of affairs, peeps.

In anticipation of the game today, I made a quick journey over to Peter Abrahams blog (lo siento, work... I swear it was like 37 seconds) to check the lineup and see which of our losers were playing today as is my gameday routine and noticed Gardner was there in place of the Melk Man; I assumed Girardi had had enough of the beast's seemingly endless disappointments and took him out of the lineup again for some more benchwarming. HOWEVER! Upon scrolling down for some more quick updates (ok... make it 97 seconds) I found the truth: Melky has been demoted to AAA.

While I was a bit surprised (this team [and the fans] seem to have a love affair with the Melk Man), I must say that I found the news to be a huge relief. Let's face it, the dude sucks this year, and TIME IS RUNNING OUT. Quickly. There is simply no room in the lineup for automatic outs (except, apparently, for Jo-Mo, but at least he contributes defensively). With the fabulous Nady trade, the Yanks have plenty of outfield options - they will not miss him. Cano is out of a dance partner and carpool buddy, but perhaps he'll be scared straight by his BFF's fate.

In lesser news, SexsNO was cut loose. He will not be missed either. I look forward to more Giambi ABs.

    This is why I am a fan of Girardi. Send them packing. Cano, you better be next. I don't mind some poundings here and there, but I am tired at payroll being sucked up by people that dont produce. Young guys come on up, and show us the fire. Ill take a scrappy player in CF any day over the Melk Man. Hey Cano, if you don't figure it out fast, you will be trade bait. I hope it works out for you someplace else, both of you. Its ok to admit wrong!
