"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Would You Believe?

…That the Red Sox and the Rays both won tonight? That Russell Martin hit into a triple play? That Rafael Soriano screwed the pooch and gave up the deciding three-run home run? How about that Boston’s third-string catcher, Ryan Lavarnway (and what a wonderful name that is), hit two home runs? Lavarnway also made a critical play to get the second out in the ninth inning too.

It all happened folks. And so there will be another night of channel-flipping, nail-biting, and general playoff mishegoss. Would you expect anything less at this pernt?

The good news is that Bartolo Colon pitched reasonably well for the Yanks in the 5-3 loss.

Otherwise, the Yankees were a footnote in this drama. Final game of the season. Dig ‘um, smack.

Comes down to #162 tomorrow night.

Red Sox had better come to play.

4 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 27, 2011 10:51 pm

[3] Lester on 3 days rest? Going to be a good one, but hope they go to #163! I'm sure the Trop would see at least 30K for that one.

8 a.O   ~  Sep 27, 2011 11:29 pm

Wow. Got to be advantage Rays with the Yanks resting guys tomorrow, but here's hoping for a playoff Thursday.

9 thelarmis   ~  Sep 27, 2011 11:38 pm

10 thelarmis   ~  Sep 27, 2011 11:39 pm

[8] i hope jete can go 2-2, or something, reach .300 and then get pulled. i know it won't happen, and it doesn't really mean anything anyway, but what the fuck. would be cool!

11 thelarmis   ~  Sep 27, 2011 11:43 pm

cards were down 5-0. they won 13-6.

houston, you've got a problem.

atlanta, you do too!

12 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 27, 2011 11:54 pm

[9] Yeah, it's a long list! I'd like to hear your rock pantheon, though am guessing Steve Gadd (he belongs on jazz AND rock?) and John Bonham lead the way?

[11] I really dislike Tony La Russa, got to cheer for the Braves in this race..

13 thelarmis   ~  Sep 27, 2011 11:56 pm

rangers' big 4 have all homered tonite. kins, cruz, beltre, napoli. those guys have 120 longballs between them.

14 thelarmis   ~  Sep 27, 2011 11:58 pm

[12] yeah, bonham is first. and then no one is listed after. kinda like the tony thing! : )

gadd just RULES. he gets his own special category. there's a reason his name is one letter away from god...

and go braves, 'coz i live here! : )

i'm loggin' off. see youze manana...

15 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 28, 2011 12:47 am

[14] Yeah, I guessed you would have Bonham way on top.
Have a good one, going to be a great baseball day tomorrow. Wish I had the morning off!

16 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 28, 2011 1:16 am

[14, 15] Neal Pert.

17 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 28, 2011 1:29 am

[14,15] Charlie Watts.

18 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 28, 2011 2:55 am

[17] Er...that's a joke about Charlie Watts, right? :)

19 T. Hawk   ~  Sep 28, 2011 7:16 am

[5] Sorry about that . I'm trying to migrate to something else. Maybe that's a dumb idea!

20 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 28, 2011 7:35 am

What, are you getting married too? >;)

21 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 28, 2011 8:37 am

1) Yeah, I cheated hoping for a reverse jinx. Some super powers...

22 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 28, 2011 9:26 am

[18] No joke, my friend.

23 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 28, 2011 10:56 am

Rock Drummers: What's the old joke? What do you call a drummer who just broke up with his girlfriend? Homeless.

My apologies, thelarmis.

On the best lists, What about Keith Moon, Ginger Baker, Neil Pert, Carl Palmer, Bill Bruford, Mitch Mitchell, Dave Garibaldi, Ainsley Dunbar, Max Weinberg, and Levon Helm (in his own subtle way, and there is something about a vocalist singing behind the drum kit)? I'm sure more to mention, just can't remember.

24 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 28, 2011 12:18 pm

Don't forget Animal, KB, don't forget Animal...

25 Matt Blankman   ~  Sep 28, 2011 1:15 pm

Why would anyone be joking about Charlie Watts being great? Of course he's great.
[23] Agreed about Levon - he's an excellent drummer which often gets overshadowed. I would add hmm...Steve Jordan, Bev Bevan, Bobby Elliott, Bernard Purdie, Olly Peacock...

26 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 28, 2011 2:20 pm

[24] I was too old for Sesame Street (really, just a little), and when my son watched it in the 90's, Animal didn't make an impression.
