"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice


C.C. Sabathia’s next start is scheduled for Friday against the Red Sox. There will be plenty of time to consider what’s wrong with the Big Man who followed-up a pair of mediocre starts today with an ass-whuppin’ in Tampa. Gave up seven runs, his worst outing of the season, and got his tits lit proper. Gunna be a long week for C.C.

Alex Cobb was terrific and the Rays sailed to a 8-3 win, despite a mini-rally by the Yanks in the 9th.

Oh well, another game tomorrow. Am not looking forward to the camouflage uniforms. That's not the Yankees.

[1] Christ, they will be wearing that shit? I hate that crap. I won't let anyone in my family wear camouflage. (For the record, my dad is a Pearl Harbor survivor and Pacific Campaign vet.)

[2] No need for 'for the record' even. (I didn't know your Dad was there, got to talk about that with you!) Civilians wearing camouflage is pathetic and likely insulting to soliders anyways. I know my bro-in-law in the Army said he and his buddies always made fun of anyone they saw wearing them.

MLB's excessive promotion of the military is disturbing and so typically myopic. Imagine if there were actually any peacenik ball players (must be at least one or two..Carlos Delgado the only recent one I can think of).

[3] Here, here! What rubbish, suggesting that camouflage honors veterans. Utter bullshite.

To honor veterans, they ought to wear olive branches or peace signs.

I truly hate jingoism.

Sorry for breaking the rules, Alex.

The issue of civilians in camouflage doesn't even have to be about pacifism vs. jingoism. It's simple respect: The uniform is something you earn the right to wear, and if you haven't, you shouldn't.

I was never in the armed forces, and many years ago when I played a lot of paintball in the woods (meaning there was a practical reason to wear a camo shirt), I made sure not to buy anything that was military issue. Went with one of the patterns they sell for hunting.

[5] Good point.
