Lil’ Sori: The Return? Just as Alex is about to get shitcanned? Oh, I can see the columns that will be written (wait–too late).
In the meantime, it’s Phil “Chuck and Duck” Hughes.
Never mind the nonsense:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Yankees left fielders are hitting .224/.268/.331 this season. Vernon Wells had one good month but has slipped significantly since then...
Yeah, that's an understatement.
My Little Payday.
Actually, this looks like a bargain for the Sox, huh?
I remember thinking after Soriano hit the 8th inning go-ahead home run in WS Game 7 vs Schilling that he would be a Yankee forever.
That was a looooong time ago.
I'd take him off Chicago's hands for (relatively) nuttin' that's for sure.
What a horrible, horrible shit show for the that first hit. Mesa nearly killed himself and Nune6 dropped the incoming throw. C'mon, man.
While Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game suspension from the league for his part in the Biogenesis scandal, Alex Rodriguez currently has no plans to make any such deals and will appeal any PED-related suspension the league may level against him, USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports.
Rodriguez reportedly doesn't believe his case is comparable to Braun's, and Major League Baseball may agree in the sense that they're pursuing a lengthier suspension for the Yankee third baseman. Nightengale hears from a source that the league is looking to suspend Rodriguez for at least 100 games due to his longer history with PEDs and his part in the Biogenesis case, including a possible charge that Rodriguez tried to destroy evidence.
Atta boy, Melky!
 I've seen that there are negotiations, and no negotiations. And a lifetime ban or a Braun-like suspension. Some reporters are going to be wrong.
Holy shit! Back to back doubles AND a run. "Melky touches third!" yells Kenny right after telling his missing third story. lol...
My goodness, my gracious!!!
What the hell is this crap? Three hits in a row?
Who are these guys?
Now ... DOUBLE STEA ... oh, Robbie's up ... check that.
Dammit. Robbie just missed that one. Oi.
For fuck's sake. Fuck.
Yeah, okay, that's more like it.
Vernon smoked that one.
A third double! In one game.
Vernon with a fountain of youth inning.
Well I'll be, Vern made that run!
Mr. Mesa doesn't get cheated at the plate, that's for certain ...
I don't know if Mesa will stick but at least he looks like a hitter.
A very young, swing at a terrible 3-2 pitch kind of hitter.
I was about to compliment Melky: The Sequel on a very good at bat, and then he went and swung at *that* pitch ...
I'm pulling a Nostra, I think AR's gonna bring this one in ...
And *that's* why you leave the prognosticating to the pros, boys and girls ...
Cano can't buy a friggin' break!
Welcome to your home in LF*, Grandyman!
*If and when you return ...
 Not to bag on CG, who I genuinely think is a great dude, but he's been miscast as the Yankees' CF for 3 years now ...
Phil is certainly auditioning well tonight as trade bait. Joba for an inning too?
Great pitch, Phil, you Phuck!
That was ... sub-optimal.
Fire Fire Fire.
(hint: we're not saying BOOOOOOOOOOOurns!)
It's important for Phil's homers to be solos. That one was not.
 You mean the one he didn't give up?
Ugh ... this one's going to hurt.
That's a beaut.
Robbie iz "teh awesomez!1!"
Nice grab, Brett.
Yikes. What's up with the Tx mound?
Well whaddya know? NUNEY!
Whoo-hoo. A comeback.
Caught looking. 2 down.
6-3. Ballgame. Praise be to Mo.
No, praise be to *you* Ara, me and everyone else bailed on this game before the 9th!
Oh, we of little faith ...
 God, it was a long time ago. And yet, I remember it like it was yesterday.
