"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Thank You Sir, May I Have Another


Yeah, I don’t know, man. The Sox ain’t all that. Sure they scored 2 touchdowns today in the Bronx but they missed an extra point. Fuggin’ pussies.

David Huff got torched and so did the Yanks, dropping another game to the Sox, this one to the tune of 13-9. It was over early. The Yanks actually battled their way back into it but well, you get the way this weekend is going: Doom.

Derek Jeter left the game early, had a CT scan on his ankle and–good news!–it came back negative.

Phew about Derek. I expect him to sit tomorrow anyway.

Ball FUCKING Saxbury, that's all I have to say!

Oh, and how many people had the Yankees scoring: 8, 8 and 9 and losing all three games?

More bad news for us Tokyo residents today, we "won" the 2020 Olympic bid. That means the following: Unabated construction with no concern for individual rights (coming soon to your neighborhood: a bulldozer), and an intensification of efforts to sweep the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster under the rug.

I lost the Yanks. I lost my town. I'm waiting for next hit.

[1] I wish they would sit him for the rest of this lost season, on the hope that he can come back right next year.

[2] In fact, the Yankees are the first team, ever, to lose three straight home games while scoring at least 8 runs in each game.

Remember when the big problem was the line-up??

Avert your eyes, pinch your noses, and hold your breath, kids. Coming up on the right of the road is the carcass of the 2013 Yankees. Single file, brisk pace, cellphones down, no pictures. Yes, Mary, it is a disgusting sight. Trevor, keep walking while you vomit. We'll be past it quickly enough.

The end of the crash car derby? The car cannot go? Can we at least pay attention to give Mo the send-off he deserves?

The funny thing is, the Yankees are still only 2.5 games out of the last wild card slot.

8) oh yeah, there are still plenty of reasons to keep watching and rooting.
Mariano's final days are the main reason for me. The wild card is a booby prize, and, for now, an attainable one. Even if we "win" it, it's impossible to envision a long march to October glory for these Yankees. Not the way they're getting smoked this weekend.

[10] October baseball might just prolong the agony, but wouldn't it be nice if the Yankees can help take down Baltimore and Tampa Bay, and give Cleveland or KC a chance to play.

"Yeah, wouldn't it be nice."

oops [10] for [9]
