California Hate

What do you mean we have the third home Yankee game for the ALDS??? We start the series on the road!!! You bought a ticket for a game that will never happen!!! You got a ticket to Anaheim to go with that ticket, jackass??

I'm with Vader on this one. I'm not happy about starting this series on the road. We could have iced home-field for this round with a win. Now we have to go on the road and play the one team that gives us more problems than any team outside of the Red Sox.

The Angels are a very good team that can pitch, defend and run the bases. They're not the best offensive team, but they have Vlad Guerrero and Garret Anderson, two hitters that have given us fits over the years. Chone Figgins has given us fits on the basepaths. Of all the playoff teams, they're the only one that we were under .500 against(4-6).

It seemed like Torre was going fullspeed for the first couple of innings. But when it looked like they would have to balls to the wall to win the game, Torre backed off. I understand why he did it, but I wish we could have won that game for homefield. Then again, with the way we played earlier in the year, I guess we should be happy that we're in the playoffs in any position. And this is why the games against the Royals and Devil Rays hurt. Instead of being in control of your own destiny, you're fighting for homefield on a day you should be resting guys...against a team that came into the day fighting for its playoff survival.

And Jeter banged up his knee...ugh.

I see that we have Moose, Chacon and Johnson going in this series. If we can get one game on the left coast, we're in good shape to finish it off over the weekend.

I hate Cali....

Not much humor in the Red Sox nation this morning.
The name Bucker is once again being tossed about the land.
My rhyme has no reason because there's no heart in my teazin.
It looks like the Red Sox are freezin' and it could be the end to their season.
Read your buddy Shaunessey in the Boston Globe this morning.
