So, umm…

Umm… since the Yankees haven’t really done anything big, I’ll just go over some minor news in the baseball world. Minor to me, anyway. Maybe not minor to you.

Mets’ Wright to join Team USA in WBC

Since A-Rod’s going to play for the Dominican Republic(woohoo!), David Wright will join Team USA. Apparently it’s going to be a fantastic USA team this year; Wright, Sizemore, Lackey, McCann, Dustin Pedroia the MVP, Jeter… it’ll be really interesting. I wouldn’t be too surprised if they win, but I’m rooting the DR on.

Brewers eyeing free agent Looper

Yes, Braden Looper. Umm, when’s the part where I care? No offense Brewers, no offense Braden, but… Braden Looper isn’t exactly the most amazing pitcher in the world last I checked. I really have nothing to add to this… I don’t know why I even bothered putting this up, I have nothing to say about it…

Yankees may make pitch to Manny

First of all, ya’ll may think this is humongous news… I don’t think this is all that big. Manny is a great player, it’s the YANKEES, OUR Yankees, but… really, the one thing I feel about this is “NO MANNY NO MANNY NO”. Simple as that… I read something really interesting about this in the paper, I think the New York Post or the New York Times today, just an editorial I think… it said something about this. It said something like this.,, the Yankees shouldn’t sign Manny because Manny will just find excuses and complaints so he can get out of the Bronx, just like he did in Boston. That’s something George Steinbrenner would never tolerate 20 years ago, and we’ll see if Hank and Hal will in the present. Something like that. Anyway, I thought that guy was totally right and it convinced me fully that Manny is not the way.

Anyway, that’s about it… so, what to talk about now?

Well, how about music? I loooove music… whenever there’s nothing going on in the baseball world, I can talk about music. I’m very into rock, hip hop, jazz, rap, pop, a lot of stuff. I like bands like… Hoobastank, Linkin Park, Coldplay, Yellowcard, All-American Rejects, and then harder bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Alexisonfire, I like a little Disturbed, a little AFI. I like Fort Minor, Lupe Fiasco, the Flobots, a little Hollywood Undead, a little Kanye West, maybe even a little Flipsyde… you get the picture.

So, allow me to recommend a song?

Afterlife – Avenged Sevenfold

For any good hard rock songs, this is a good song… it’s catchy, it’s really an awesome song… check it out.

Anyway, that’s about it.

Stay positive, Yankee fans!

    E.J. – You are SO right to not want Manny playing for the Yankees. You want a player who shows up to work everyday, not just when he feels like it. We Red Sox fans know this. Jon Lester should also be playing for Team USA – I think they will fare much better this year then in 2006. Good song.

    I do have a post explaining why Manny will not become like that with the Yankees:
    My outlandish theories aside, I think Jeter will keep him in line.
    On the song: Meh, it was all right. I did like the guitar starting at 2:50, even if it sounded a little Dragonforce-ish. I didn’t see System of a Down, Rage Against The Machine, or the Clash on your list, so what about your thoughts on them? Because they are my favorite bands, so I was just wondering.
