Winning Baseball…

It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it?

This is just a quick little blog– I’m going to have a full blog tomorrow talking about… stuff, I guess, but expect that to be at around late noon because mah cuzzin’s coming over to stay for a few days and the greeting is going to be long and fun. But let’s get to the substance.

Throughout this season, the Yankees are winning baseball games in such a way that would make you think they have to win the World Series this year. I mean, think about it. Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter and our starting pitcher, Double Tre were all not nearly at their best tonight, but we won anyway. Why? Because Damon picked them up. Because Teixeira picked them up. Because Aceves picked them up. Matsui picked them up. This ballclub has no one player that carries the team, no one player that is “the straw that stirs the drink” so to speak. On any given day, any given ballplayer can hit a home run or move a runner over(I’m looking at you Mr. Cycle) or get an important, run scoring single. If the offense is not performing like it should, our starting pitcher is there and shutting down the opposing offense. And no matter what, we always find a way to get that big play.

Whether it’s a defensive play or a strikeout or a clutch base hit as it usually is, it’s a-comin’.

With that, ladies and gentlemen, I have a feeling that Barack Obama’s going to be wearing a Yankee jersey by the end of the year.

Song of the Day tomorrow, along with the next post.

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

    Yes, you guys have won so many games there’s no doubt you’re going to win the World Series. Oh wait, what’s your record against the Red Sox? Anyone can beat up on crap teams – measure yourself against something actually worth measuring……

    The fact that someone can honestly believe even for just a moment that their team “has to” win the World Series is downright gross to me. It really is quite gross. Gross, gross, gross.

    You guys are just jealous of the Yankees. Don’t all teams have to winthe world series? Isn’t that what every team wants to do? Everyone is just jealous that the Yankees CAN do it. BURN!

    EJ: Well, I don’t have a boyfriend, so I guess that won’t happen for a while. No need to be jealous. To get people to comment, I read their blogs and comment on it, making sure I ask a question so they comment back. I love reading other blogs and seeing other people’s perspective’s and writing styles. That’s how I got people to look at my blog, and once they saw it, they kept coming back. I still comment on their blogs, too. I like sharing my opinions on stuff. And hey, you have comments today! -Virginia

    EJ: I didn’t mean being jealous about THAT, silly, I meant about me getting comments. You said you were a bit jealous about that. I didn’t mean the boyfriend thing!
    And just for the record, I’m not fat at all. Seriously. I’m skinny. I might be a model if I can’t find any other jobs, but models have a rep of being stupid, and I’m not stupid. Whatever. Anyway, congrats on the comments. You deserve them! -Virginia
