What Was That?…


Okay, that was really ugly…

Saturday’s 9-7 loss to the Rays was ugly, I am not quite sure what you’d call last night’s 7-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox.

A.J. Burnett was a disappointment, giving up 5 runs, 3 earned, and 5 walks in less than 3 innings of work.  I guess he has to wear a Jays uniform to be effective at Fenway Park because it certainly doesn’t work in a Yankees jersey…

The Yankees and the Red Sox are once again tied at the top of the AL East Standings with records of 34-24.



The Yankees need to put this one behind them, and come out today with a new and fresh attitude.  They are better than their 0-for-6 record against the Sox indicates, and hopefully, good things are in store for Chien-Ming Wang and the Yankees tonight.



I won’t lose the faith, and I am certainly not ready to be sized for a Jason Bay t-shirt.




The Yankees chose center fielder Slade Heathcott, an 18 year old high school player from Texarkana, Texas.  Slade definitely has a name fit for a Texan, and hopefully a swing fit for Yankee Stadium.  There’s only one serious flaw in Slade’s game…he’s a Red Sox fan…but I think we’ll  be able to cure that ailment.



With their second pick, the Yankees selected another 18-year old high school player in defensive-minded catcher John Murphy from Bradenton, Florida.

Can’t say that I care for the batting helmet…  😉 

The Vikings have supposedly “temporarily suspended” their pursuit of QB Brett Favre.  The deadline imposed by head coach Brad Childress was a poor idea if the team legitimately wanted Favre, so supposedly the ‘cooling off’ period will allow Favre additional time to decide if his shoulder is up to the challenge of another season.  All things considered, Brett, stay home…



Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins for their 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Finals to force Game 7.  The team with home ice has won every game of this series, and unfortunately, Game 7 is in Detroit.  Nevertheless, if there’s anyone who can perform the impossible, it’s Sidney Crosby.  Hopefully, they’ll be hoisting the Stanley Cup in the streets of Pittsburgh.  Good luck to the Pens!

What?  The Lakers lost?  What’s up with that…

    Scott – you had a really bad night last night! The Yankees lost, the Lakers lost, the two Yankees draft picks seem to favor the Red Sox….wow! And you know what? I don’t see tonight being any better for you my friend! 😉

    Have a great day!

    You guys got high school players too? The Padres got Donavan Tate, but I guess it will be a long time till these guys will be able to help the major league club. Poor Yankees, that was a really great win for the Sox last night 🙂

    Well, like I told Jane: Wakefield is due for an awful start and Wang is due for a good one. Hopefully both of those will happen tonight. And I think the worst part of this whole Farve thing is that Packers fans are laughing at us. Bears fans too, probably. Guh!-Erinhttp://plunking-gomez.mlblogs.com

    Hi Scott! I was wondering – did you happen to know who won the Red Sox – Yankees game Wednesday night? Oh – the same team who Tuesday night? Really? Wait a minute….2 out of 3 games were won by the Red Sox? You know what that means don’t you? I WIN AGAIN!!!! Oh – I’m sorry – not very gracious of me. I meant to say – “Good try my friend! Would you be ever so kind and send me your t-shirt size??” 😉 I am So getting use to this! LOL!
