The Good

Yesterday, Posada made a bare handed catch on a pop-up off the bat of Chone Figgins. Figgins popped it up and then walked backwards into Posada who was tracking the ball. Posada pushed him out of the way and in doing so his glove came off and he had to catch the ball bare handed. He then ice grilled Figgins as if to say "I'm going to beat the $#!% out of you little man." Then the umpire tried to give him $#!%, and Jorge told him to shut the %*$#$% up. At least I assume he did.

The Bad

Unfortunately for WFAN callers everywhere, Joba has ended the great debate. He should be a reliever. Joba is simply too inefficient to be a starter. He throws too many pitches, doesn't throw strikes, doesn't challenge hitters, shakes off a veteran catcher who really knows the hitters and then throws a pitch three feet off the plate so that he can run up another 3-2 count before he lets the hitter foul four pitches off and then walks him anyway. Joba was never efficient as a reliever, but throwing 30 pitches per inning doesn't matter when you only pitch the eighth.

The Ugly

The Yankees' pitching staff takes this one. 26 runs in 18 innings? Yeah guys, you suck. And when I say you suck, I mean it with every inappropriate sexual connotation that the word invokes if you actually think about it. Don't get punched in the face on your way out, you bastards.

At Least There's Money In It

Rodriguez has three homers in the last two games. Hinske had two and Matsui had one in today's game. Rodriguez really loves kids man. Wait a minute. Matsui has 14 home runs? WTF?

Jorge Posada 11hr = $11.00
Hideki Matsui 14hr = $14.00
Derek Jeter 10hr = $10.00
Mark Teixeira 21hr = $21.00
Nick Swisher 14hr = $14.00
Robinson Cano 13hr = $13.00
Johnny Damon 16hr = $16.00
Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 17hr = $17.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 3hr = $3.00
Total = $132.00

It's time to coax the Mighty Moose out of retirement and hire David Cone as our new pitching coach.

And Carl Pavano got himself another WIN today. Isn't that sweet?

Let's not go there right now. Pavano is too raw a subject.

I love the david cone idea..although i think I'd miss his clever commentary in the booth..."swisher still working on that knob" should go on a T-shirt.../ that catch was nice by posada..and afterwards the hand on the hip for extra emphasis really did it for me!!.....grr...okay yanks, you can go back to winning again. atleast end the last game on a good note.. didnt they go into a winning streak b4 the all star break last year? or was it after? short-term memory lost.

Roberto E. Alejandro said...

they went on a tear right after the all star break last year and everyone thought the Yankees were going to make their run, but it only lasted a couple weeks or so, then they went back to sucking.
