"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Stuffed and Mounted

Yeah, man, the Blue Jays demolished Hiroki Kuroda and the Yanks tonight by the tune of 8-1. It’s always amazed me how fly balls lift off in Toronto. The Jays hit four home runs and Kyle Drabek stifled the all-or-nothing Yankee offense. Yo, anyone else ready to seriously dislike the Jays? I am. Just something about the looks of the guys on the team. I don’t like ’em at all.

This is a night we will not remember unless Robbie Cano’s 300th career double means anything to you (Cano did make a slick unassisted double play in ninth; he fielded a ground ball as he sprinted to second base, touched the bag and still running toward the Yankee dugout made the throw to get the runner at first. Poetry in motion.).

This one is already starting to vanish, tomorrow night can’t come soon enough and that’s the beauty of baseball–they do it every day. Sure, there is plenty of kvetch about (I get it, Phil Hughes starting isn’t inspiring you with confidence). I know, the Yanks have had a “m’eh” season so far. But soon enough there will be reason to cheer.

Count on it, True Believers.

I'm beginning to wonder if the middle of our lineup will ever come around.

I hate the Blue Jays, the O's, the Rays, and the Sox. And that's just the A.L. East! : )

[1] Joe says it will even out in the long run. Not sure I believe him either.

We need Gardy back.

And sitting Jeter is a crime against humanity. Inexcusable. WTF Joe!

FYI and off topic. There's a hilarious article in the NY Times on the "unwritten rules"and bean balls. Never heard of the writer before. Check it out.

Hey yos, greeting from Gótesborg! Missed the game (flying) and expect to miss a bunch more.

Jag älskar baseball!

3) Funny, but I don't hate the Rays. I like them except when they play the Yanks.

When you say this one is starting to vanish, I feel that way about this season.

12) Ah, ye of little faith! Hang in there.
