"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Part Time Sucker

Well, that sucked. C.C. Sabathia got mushed by the Red Sox again, the bats didn’t do dick and there was no joy in the Boogie Down. 10-4 Sox.

The beauty part for me is that I was stuck at a family party and didn’t see a pitch of it. Still, lousy as this was, it’ll feel better if the Yanks return to the favor tomorrow night against that sombitch from Texas.

As Jesse Jackson once said, “Keep Hope Alive.” No time to get un-Dude.

Oh, and C.C. will have his revenge against the Sox. And you can take that to the bank.

When? For the love Mo. When? Fuck. lol..
Randy Johnson never won a ring with the Yanks, but he did go 5-0 or something that one year. That was nice. If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we could flip CC's record vs. the Sox and make him 20-2. Beckett'll probably toss a 2 hit shut out tomorrow. Asshole.

Currently enjoying the Righetti no-hitter on yes. Baylor crushed one to left and Donnie B's rocking #46. Did Buch Wynegar piss off the Banter of 83 worse than the current Cervelli?

Andre Robertson at second? Nearly screwed Righetti for not being able to turn a routine double play. Then Boggs struck out. Yeesh.

Even I could use a stiff drink after that mess, and I only heard the second inning on the car radio.

[2] I don't recall; you'd probably have a fairer comparison with Rick Cerone. At least Wynegar had some good in him in his career, and he was playing for Billy and Lou when he finally said No Mas (can't really blame the guy after reading the back-story)...

No comments on today's game. Crush the Grinch tomorrow!!
[4] Isn't it funny how there were TWo Rick Cerrone's? Thought they were the same guy for years..

[4] Cerrone did have that one pretty nice season, for the Yanks, in 1980. I remember my father being excited that he might just be the next great Italian-American Yankee catcher.

[5] Huh? I think there was only one Rick Cerrone who played ML baseball.

8 monkeypants   ~  Aug 7, 2011 6:23 am

[6], [7] Cerone.

They might not play today. It's supposed to rain all day, "chance of thundershowers" tonight. I dunno, maybe it will clear enough by game time. It's coming down in buckets right now.

[5], [6], [7], [8] Rick Cerone played, Rick Cerrone (2 'r's) was the travelling secretary or something back in the 70's 80's. Going from memory here at 8AM.

11 Fuller R   ~  Aug 7, 2011 8:27 am

OK, had some coffee & hey, Google is my friend - Cerrone (2'r's) was with the club during the most recent dynasty as the media relations guy.

Avoiding another sad attempt by Garcia to drown the Sox in his slop is a good thing. Rain on, I say!

13 monkeypants   ~  Aug 7, 2011 3:31 pm

[10] [11] Aha.

14 Chyll Will   ~  Aug 7, 2011 5:35 pm

[5] Well Jazz, et al, this Cerrone was the best of the bunch... >;)
