Don’t Drink the Milk


Why? It’s spoiled. 

You know when someone–let’s say, my wife–takes out a container from the fridge, looks at it suspiciously, opens it and then pushes it in your direction and says, “Smell, this. Is this still good?”

That’s last night’s game. The Red Sox practically rolled out the red carpet for the Yanks to beat them and yet it did not happen. Didi Gregorious hit a deep fly ball to the warning track with the bases loaded for the final out and the Yanks wasted a chance to gain a game on the Jays.

The ball looked like it had a shot and the sinking feeling that ensued was as agreeable as  your wife asking you to smell a container of leftovers.

Fuck this fucking game.

Didi was 4 for 5, and I thought, here is the moment when he becomes a "true Yankee" Just kidding! I really like the kid, and he is playing well. I thought he had all of it too, and came up a few feet short.

It was really aggravating. I know you want to be aggressive but sending Bird on that ball was a mistake. Maybe they thought he was faster? The Yanks GM knows that he is not an athlete who can play the outfield. Translation: He is slow.

We had that game, and it was very frustrating. I watched the whole damn thing. Games like that are harder to watch than blowouts. At least in a blowout, you might get to see a position player pitch.

apparently, according to stats & info, didi's shot would've been a homer in 24 of the 30 stadiums. damn.

As the Sawx relievers got wild, I got the sense our boys were getting too passive and waiting for the bases on ballses. Too many backwards Ks in the late innings.

With the game on the line and the ducks on the pond, getcher hacks.
