THE BOYS OF SUMMER HAVE RETURNED.

We lost, but it’s okay.

Look, are we glad the season’s back or not?

I’m a big Yankee fan, so of course I’m upset we blew a lead on Opening Night against our biggest rival, the Red Sox. But it’s all good, it’s all good. We lost a handful of games at the beginning of 2009(against the Orioles, moreover) and we kind of won the World Series then. You see that? There’s always a bright side of things.

I’m too optimistic to wallow in the despair of a loss. I can’t stand pessimism. I really can’t.

Anyway, allow me to break down what happened in that game.

What We Did Right

We hit like the Yankees should. We hit like our mommas told us we should. First of all, a few guys were swinging away early in the count early on against Beckett, which I didn’t like much, but in the 2nd inning we got Beckett to throw a lot more pitches by getting four consecutive hits. Oh, and by the way, the first two of those four hits were back-to-back jacks from Jorge Posada (pesky pole line drive) and Curtis Granderson (just a good ol’ fashioned atom bomb). Posada had 3 hits and 2 RBI. Robbie Cano had two hits, including a double. Jeter had two knocks and drove in a run, and heck, Nick Johnson even walked twice. Our pitching didn’t let Ellsbury get on base (he was 0-for-5) We worked Beckett with hits and deep counts until he was taken out in the middle of the 5th inning. That’s when things got ugly.

What We Did Wrong

The bullpen surrendered 2 walks, 6 hits and 3 earned runs, 2 of those coming from Chan Ho Park, who did not impress in his first outing with the Yanks. Place your bets on when he’s getting cut(sarcasm).

Sabathia’s start was not much better, as although he had some bright spots, he gave up 5 runs in 5.1 innings. We let Youkilis beat us (3 hits and 2 RBI). We let Pedroia beat us (2 hits and 3 RBI). And how do you give up 2 hits, a ribbie and a walk to the number nine hitter (Marco Scutaro)? Our arms just didn’t go out there and give us the good stuff, and that’s why we sucked.

Next Game

Flamethrowing AJ Burnett gets the start for the Yankees against Jesus–I mean, Jon Lester. Why do I risk blasphemy by calling Lester Jesus? Well, a lot of baseball minds(Tom Verducci being one of them) have Lester winning the Cy Young award this year. He has electric stuff, he came back from cancer, won the clinching World Series game, pitched a no-hitter, takes no crap from nobody and by the way, he’s a lefty. It seems like the only thing he’s missing is the Cy Young at this point.

Do I think he’ll win the Cy Young? No, I don’t. I think Jake Peavy will win it and I have a good argument for that. But is it far-fetched to predict Lester to take home the trophy? It most definitely isn’t. He’s the real deal.

As far as Burnett goes, he’s an enigma, as are 2 of the other Yankee starters (Vasquez and Hughes could do a number of things). We know he has great stuff. We know he’s performed in tough situations in the past. He had a solid postseason. He has freakin’ awesome tattoos, and he was in a rock band. Okay, maybe the last part is a little irrelevant, but still, you see what I’m getting at. It’ll be interesting to see how Burnett starts off his ’10 season against one of the premier pitchers in the MLB.

And it’ll also be interesting to see how Granderson fares against the lefty starter Lester. We know he bites against southpaw hurlers.

You sure know who I’m rooting for.

Around the MLB

Right now, life is good. In fact, if life was any sweeter, I’d have cavities in all my teeth. It’s a bright day outside, I’ve got MLB Network on the big ol TV with round-the-league coverage, and I don’t have school for the entire week. Oh, and pomegranate lemonade. Good stuff.

As for the MLB, we’ve got Barack Hussein Obama(he’s kind of the President) throwing the first pitch in Washington DC in a Nats-Phillies game where Doc Halladay is making his first Phillies start. The Nats lead 1-0. The Mets are leading 2-0, but they’ll blow that in a couple innings. I’ve already called it, so it’s going to happen. Aaron Harang was looking fantastic against St. Louis, striking out two batters, and then Pujols came up. 2-2 count! Here’s the pitch! Down the middle! There it–goes? Yeah, that’s the reigning NL MVP, boys. If you’re not used to it, get with the program.

And these MLB 2k10 commercials are the shizznat. The game sucks(The Show for the win) but they’ve definitely got it going on with the commercials. Nelson Cruz talking about making Andrew Bailey cry with his boomstick. Kendry Morales and Felix Hernandez trash talking in Spanish. There are few things better than trash talk, especially when it’s from Latino people.

Around the World

March Madness. National Championship Game. The incredible story of Butler University against the top-tier long time power and definite favorite Duke University. 9:00 PM EST tonight. I don’t care if you don’t like basketball. Watch it.

Oh, and Donovan McNabb has been traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Washington Redskins in an absolute horrible trade for the Eagles. I mean, come on, Philly. How do you trade one of the better QBs in the league to a divisional rival for two low round draft picks? Congrats to Washington for such a steal. Look out for how the draft is impacted by this. Jimmy Clausen was a favorite to go no. 4 to the Redskins, but now that they have a quarterback, they’re a franchise left tackle away from being a serious playoff contender. They can draft Bryan Bulaga there and have their blindside, or they can get Russell Okung if the Lions foolishly pass on him. And Jimmy Clausen could go to the Browns at no. 5, the Bills at no. 9, or heck, everybody else has a quarterback, he could go to the Cardinals late in the first round. Interesting stuff.

But the Eagles are idiots today.

What You Need to Look At

I’ve been bored and uninterested in blogging lately, been more interested in other stuff, so sorry. I wish I felt like blogging, but I didn’t, so… when I don’t feel it, I just can’t do it, you know? We’re still in first place, although the lead we have over Boston is not quite as comfortable as it once was. We win some, we lose some. Still, look for this team to win the World Series this year, I can just feel it.

Stay positive, Yankee fans, I’m not dead(yet).

Rule Number 1.

Punch em in the mouth.

If you ever needed something to pump you up prior to an important Red Sox-Yankees series out in Fenway Park, you only have to watch this press conference of Mike Singletary, the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Start at 0:53 and end at 3:37.

 

If that didn’t get you revved up, your heart is made of stone, really. I mean, I don’t know what to tell you, except how do you walk with such a cold, heavy heart? Does it weigh you down?

So, today was supposed to be Chripstophriday, our first one, in which my friend Chris gives us a Yankee prospect that he has his eye on and could have major league success. Unfortunately, I forgot to ask Chris about a prospect last night. So tomorrow, a Saturday, will oddly be our first Christophriday. You’ll love him, trust me, He knows everything about prospects. Everything.

The Song of the Day is a really good one, Anberlin’s Paperthin Hymn.

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

Should I Be Surprised?

texclutchhomer.PNG

I’m not sure if I should. I mean, come on. We’ve gotten late hits in games so many times in the past, it’s ridiculous. Tex just added to the list of late inning go ahead hits. We’ve got to be the most clutch team in the game right now, no questions asked. We lead the MLB in walk offs and comeback wins. If it’s late and close, somebody will come through. Teixeira came through tonight. Before, it’s been Matsui, Posada, Cano, Rodriguez, Jeter, Damon, you name him, he’s come through in a big situation. Hell, Ramiro Pena’s first career RBI came against the Angels in late innings with the bases loaded. If I’ve got a really good pitcher on the mound who’s setting down the Yankees, I leave him in for as long as I possibly can. He’ll go 12 for me. 150 pitches? I could care less, man. I don’t take the chance of bringing in another pitcher who may or may not put out a terrific outing. The New York Yankees always come through in the clutch. Always. And don’t you forget it.

As for the game in Texas, I shall speak no more. I like Frank Francisco. In fact, I think he’s on my fantasy team. Therefore, I will not say anything more about that game.

And it seems as though, for the first time ever, the Yanks are not on FOX on a Saturday. And you should know how I think about that. Thank God. If I had to listen to Tim McCarver’s clueless rambling about Derek Jeter’s Godliness… if I had to listen to McCarver stumble and mumble and repeat himself constantly on a point that we really already knew anyway, but he just feels so glad that he’s right that he’ll try and constantly mention it so that we don’t forget his rightness… for another damn Sunday, I think I’d crack the wall open. And it’s not just McCarver, either. It’s FOX’s damn inability to give you a nice ballgame without screwing up the volume so that you have to mute it on commercials and then put it up to freaking 40 during game time. They have an extremely shoddy audio crew, and that’s being kind.

But thank God that the game is at 10. I usually prefer 7, but 10 is late enough so that I can enjoy my Saturday without feeling pressured to watch the game.

As for the Song of the Day, well, it’s Breaking Benjamin weekend, Break My Fall was yesterday, today it’s one of the tracks from their 2006 album “Phobia”, ladies and gentlemen, Dance with the Devil.

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

Behold the Art of the Comeback

The 2009 New York Yankees hath perfected it.

I have to be honest; when the Yanks were unable to score in the 7th inning, when we usually come back and score, it pretty much got to me. I thought we had no shot. I didn’t watch the top of the 8th. But I knew that we still had 6 hitters left, and that the Bombers this year can always make something out of that. Sure enough, they did.

And now the Yankees are the first to reach the 70 victory plateau in this year’s Major League Baseball year. That would be something that the best team in baseball would do, is it not?

I know that I repeat it a lot, but it’s worth being said, mainly because I enjoy pissing off Yankees haters. We are the best team in baseball right now. As I said in my last entry, there are no ands, ifs, or buts about it. Red Sox? We’re definitely better than them. Dodgers? Of course we’re better. Phillies? Bahaha! Bahah! Bahaha! That was good, wasn’t it?

By the way, something happened in Fenway tonight that I should bring to your attention. And in this context, something means freaking awesomeness in the convenience of a can. Or, rather, a good awesome minute. You saw it.

Last night, a couple of guys– including DAH YOUKAH– were hit by pitches, one probably retaliation for another. So in tonight’s ballgame, Tigers vs. Red Sox again, the 2nd of the series, Miguel Cabrera gets hit in the hand and is later taken out. Then Victor Martinez gets one up and in from Ricky Porcello, known as the 20-year old rookie right hander and first round draft pick by Detroit with 10 wins on his belt in 2009. Martinez doesn’t like it, he shares a few words. The next inning, the bottom of the 2nd inning of play, the first pitch thrown to Kevin Youkilis is high and tight and it gets Youk in the shoulder.

And (s)he didn’t like that one bit.

And so, in a total Kevin Youkilis p-ssy(no offense to my female colleagues, you know I love ya) moment, he charges the mound and pathetically tosses his helmet at Rick Porcello. I mean, who does that? That’s a b-tch(again, no offense to my female colleagues) move by Youkilis; you’re not fighting for your life, don’t use whatever utilities that can cause the slightest amount of damage. Then, when Youkilis attempts to go in for the kill and bring Porcello down, the kid Porcello does an unbelievably awesome jiu-jitsu move (I SHALL USE YOUR OWN ENERGY AGAINST YOU) and brings Youkilis to the ground before he falls. Maybe you should’ve just stuck with the helmet, Youk. It would’ve only caused half the embarrassment.

And now, in an even more embarrassing twist of fate, the idiot is now going to get probably a 6 day suspension for his actions, when he’s one of the biggest contributing factors to the Red Sox, defensively and offensively. He puts Boston and their manager, Terry Francona, in a very difficult position. Nice job, big guy. Grow a pair, why don’t you?

Song of the Day? Gimme a Hell Yeah by Rev Theory, cause I’m in that kinda mood. Who wouldn’t be if you’re a big Yankee fan?

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

About it.

And if you think otherwise, you don’t know what you’re talking about.

The Song of the Day is Count on Me by Default. I’d really appreciate if you guys can leave just a small comment on the song of the day on my blogs, cause I feel kinda like I’m wasting my time putting these songs up when nobody cares, you know? Haha…

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

When Even FOX Doesn’t Stop the Yankees…

Then you know you have a redhot team on your hands.

We’ve shutout the Red Sox in back-to-back games… hell, the first time we did it, it was in 15 innings! Come on now. You’ve got to give mad, mad, mad props to the Bombers’ pitching staff when you pull off a feat on the Red Sox like that. Even if it is just the Red Sox struggling at the plate, that still gives me great satisfaction.

The way AJ Burnett has pitched since much earlier in the season, it seems as though his earned run average should be a looot lower than 3.67… he’s been so dominant.

So that’s it for now.

Song of the Day is a very touching song called A Dream by Common, it’s a hip hop song.

Stay positive, Yankee fans.
