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.

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.
