Yankees Win Longest Game Ever

The Good

Burnett was nasty, and A-Rod hit a two-run home run. Hopefully that overshadows Ortiz trying to blame him for Ortiz's PED use tomorrow at 12:30pm.

The Bad

15 f-------g innings?! It's bad enough that nine innings takes these two teams 4 hours on average, but 15 f----------g innings?!

The Ugly

During the YES Network postgame, Paul O'Neil punched Michael Key in the face for referring to him as 'Paul' as opposed to 'Mr. O'Neil,' thus adding more fuel to the fire that he does indeed 'roid rage.

The Winning Play

A-Rod won the game with a two-run home run, the only run driving hit of the game. He clearly loves the kids more than anyone else on the team.

Jorge Posada 14hr = $14.00
Hideki Matsui 16hr = $16.00
Derek Jeter 11hr = $11.00
Mark Teixeira 28hr = $28.00
Nick Swisher 18hr = $18.00
Robinson Cano 16hr = $16.00
Johnny Damon 20hr = $20.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 20hr = $20.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 5hr = $5.00
Total = $164.00

Yep, that's my ARod!!!! Who's booing him now?!?!?!?!?! I knew he'd win it for us....he HAD to - I was getting tired and everyone I was with was getting hammered!

Gotta do it all again in a few hours...what an awesome baseball weekend!!!! (and my Tribe won!)

p.s. I stand behind my assertion that Paul O'Neil is 100% guilty of doing steroids and did indeed suffer from 'roid rage - he has the Giambi juicer bug eyes to prove it. You just have to pay close attention to catch them coming out...

How many curses were broken last night?
ARod comes through in the clutch--against a rookie pitcher nobody has ever seen before.
The team didn't curl up and die against Boston.
AJ bore down and pitched out of jams.
The kids made the other team play defense--and didn't space out and forget to play defense themselves.
Bruney didn't serve up fat pitches.
What else?
(Just hope at least most of them got some sleep. Could be weird today.)
Tribe Girl! No mo Parvo in Cleveland!
Are they going to burn the ground in the bullpen to remove the traces?


TribeGirl said...

Hahahaha need for burning - The Jake, ooops Progressive Field, has its own Army of Bugs and Birds to get rid of all traces of anything!

Agreed, all around it was well played game by the Yankees, and then they actually won. A-Rod has been really good this season. His numbers don't show it, but he's helped this team to no end since returning.
