Naps, Pitching Duels & Yankee Wins....A Great Combination

These games have been wearing me out so I decided to take a nap before the game. I wake up for the seventh inning!!! Anyway, the pitching duel is just as advertised as Unit beats Felix the Cat 2-0.

Sheff and Cano crush dingers and the Unit goes seven strong for the sixth time in seven outings. Gordon and Rivera nailed it down in the eighth and ninth.

This kid is the real deal, just as advertised. I missed most of the game but what I saw, I liked. He went eight frames for the loss. He made Matsui look silly in the eighth. Just silly. Had him swinging at a breaking ball that wasn't even close to the plate. Wow.

Needed this win since the Sux came back again against Tampa 7-6. What the hell? This team was a bunch of world-beaters last week, now they're not giving us any friggin help. Thanks a lot, Lou. At least Detroit beat Cleveland so we gain a game on them in the wildcard. We're guaranteed to have at least a share of the wildcard lead going into the A's series this weekend.

To top it off, the Mets and Pedro get pummelled by the Phils. A chance to gain the wildcard lead and they do what they always do. Fold like a deck chair in Katrina.

I'm going to bed. More in the morning.

Good Morning from the Red Sox Nation!

The "Sux" as you like to refer to the WORLD CHAMPIONS come from behind AGAIN.
Meanwhile, far from the confines of friendly Fenway,It seems the Yankees managed to pick up a game in the wild card! Wow! I love reading that Darth is thrilled to be in the race to be the AL's also ran.
Finally, in the immortal words of Michael Kay who is in the running for the John Sterling award as chief ass-kissing suck up to the team among the Yankee broadcasters,

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Kevin Mill-Lah says hi!

The Wild-Card is only a stepping stone to your demise, infidel. The ultimate goal is to knock you out of the playoffs altogether. If you're comfortable with a two game lead with 30 to play...then you're dumber than I ever imagined. Then again, finishing in second seven straight years in the regular have no frame of reference of being a winner outside of last year's fluke....

Oh Darth?
It's the Red Sox Nation calling:

Make it a two and a half game lead and you're going into Oakland.

Dumber? I'll take being the front runner any time. Tell me I wouldn't be getting it from you if the Bronx Bummers were in first place.

Fluke might be on the menu but the special for the Crankees this year is a second helping of crow.

See YA!

Oh man!

Your comments on Metstradaumas propmted me to poke on over here and take a look.

I sense there is still good in you. Come and embrace the blue and orange.

Accept that the Yankees are scum. Let the magic of Seaver and Carter and Mookie and Gil flow through you.


Nice site, good writing!

It is too late to try and turn me infidels. Turn to the dark side or perish.

The Spirits of Joe D, Gehrig, Ruth, Howard and Mantle flow through my veins.

Accept the ways of the Jeter...or die.
