An MLB season runs 162 games. Throw the 2 off the end and it's easy to break the season down into ten segments of 16 game each. The Yankees have played 48 game, basically 30 percent of their season. Their record is 21-27, 6 games under .500. 12 1/2 behind the best team in baseball, the Boston Red Sox. Hell, the empire is 7 1/2 games behind Detroit for the Wild Card. What's the sound? Oh, it's just the death star exploding as this Arrogant empire of overpaid, overpraised, whiners cries. Oh, boo hoo, Abreu, that ball was outside? How do you explain the rest of your pitiful season. - hey, Mr. April (a.k.a. A-Hole), has anyone mentioned that you're batting avg. dropped under .300. - Torre, drop the green tea, drink a coffee, and show a fucking heartbeat. The most telling sign for me is that "The captain", the man of Mike Kay and John Sterlings wet dreams, has failed to come up big twice in the last few days. I was even shocked, because as a Red Sox fan I have the utmost respect for Jeter. My only criticism of him was that last year he could have put team first and spoke out in support of A-Hole, but he chose to remain silent. Not exactly the leadership, or as Big Stein likes to say, "the Yankee way."
BTW, my disgust for Mikey Kay shot back up again during yesterday's game, when he proclaimed the Yankees "the embodiment and most important example of american sports.... so a team with an overpaid loser (A-Hole), admitted steriods and amphetamine abuser (Giambi), and an enormous economic advantage over everyone else, is the embodiment of America? Playing like losers.... well, in a country run by G.Dubya, maybe Mikey's on to something there?
Super smart (and oh so humble) I often wonder if heightened intelligence is a blessing or a curse. Recognizing the evil, lies, and corruption that dominate the world, I often retreat into films, comics, sports, and other distractions. Bread and Circuses, baby!! (Don't you just wanna hang out with me now; I must be a barrel of laughs). My blog is where you can read these thoughts, and soon enough you will begin to see, I'm a pretty cool guy. (There's that humility again)
