Hey, congratulations to Endwell Little League! Only managed three hits in the final game, but all in one inning and it was enough.
I guess all's well in that little town, huh?
Ugh, I work late and come home to this?
Meanwhile in KC the Yanks are struggling. . Esp. Pendaflex
Ugh, I go away for 4 days, miss the Bronx Bomber weekend and now back to the usual Pineda collapse?
Pineda makes me hurt.
Sheriff makes another arrest
Nice throw from St. Chez.
Ah, it's the son. I was wondering about Raul Mondesi still playing
Hah! I think a lot of people did a double-take when they heard Raul Mondesi hit a triple yesterday.
 I am not in favor of this 'sons of players I knew now in the majors, oh Zeus, how freakin' old am I getting?' feeling...
Don't be admiring, Starlin, run
 Well, Barry and Bobby? It's not exactly a new thing for me.
But Ells preceded Gary, and so did Aaron Hicks, and the former wasn't hitting and the latter...
Nah, I don't think so.
But Ellsbury drew a walk, to the wonderment of all...
 You do have some years on me, me thinks :) Thankfully with Ichiro planning to play forever there will still always be at least one player older than I am.
It was kind of getting exciting, with the full count to Hicks.
 I do. You never saw Bobby play? I guess that's one reason (there are very few) I'm happy to have those extra years.
just tuning in, though i followed on my phone.
i've been aware of young raul. if i recall correctly, he was the first player ever of all-time in the history of the universe to make his major league debut with an at-bat in the whirled serious. i watched it with my own eyeballs last october.
i also believe he got popped for PEDs earlier this season. wish that happened to Fat Liar...
 I did see Bobby but he trired when I was 7, so only on TV. My dad like him very much though. My first baseball hero was Reggie, then Wille Randolph, then Donnie Baseball of course!
that was outside, blue. fuck off!
i thought old raul made his debut super young, like 18 or 19, but i was mistaken. he was 22 and won the ROY at 23.
i kinda forgot he played two partial seasons for us and had over 70 XBH! he was a pretty good power/speed guy. i think he had a strong arm too.
gee whiz... : /
8 k's for pine. 15 retired in a row.
Pineda has really settled in after that nightmare inning.
everyone's gone now. was it something i said?
pat venditte pitching for the M's. don't know if he's switching hands or not...
judge sure does strike out a ton...
 That's probably nobody's business... >;)
 Work calling, but impossible to focus after a heavy music weekend.
 i'm glad you are into heavy music now! metal *rules* \m/
 Hah! Ain't no metal at the festvial I was at, but this guiar player from Madagascar was KILLLING on both acoustic and electric.
My interest must really be waning, no idea who either Layne or Parker are in the 'pen..
 layne is a lefty from the shit sox.
parker can go fuck himself.
goodbye to the wild card and our run diff...
 I'm actualy a secret Royales fan so don't mind losing to them. the WC is stupid anyways, let the kids play our the string then regroup for next year.
i don't like parker's delivery and heavy breathing.
 i am too! more so the giants though. that said, i'd like to beat the royales and let them beat other teams : )
 So not a fan of John Lackey then? :)
 Oh, Giants sure, they're my NL team. Great uniforms, stadium, traditions, etc.
coney pushing hard for sevy.
yeah, fuck that lackey fucker. i was thinking of him!
and, fuck blake parker too... i thought GI Joe was "trying to win"
i can't stand watching this guy get set. so much wasted movement and it's clear his shoulders are raised and tense.
i never wanna see blake fucking parker in a yankees uniform ever again.
kirby coming on to give KC double digits...
two grand slams from the sanchize and we're up by 1. unless, of course, kirby fucking yates continues to pitch...
new catcher and jake greets him with a catcher's interference!
howza bout stealing on him now?
gary going for an earl weaver special. do it, kid!
FUCK YOU, Chris Young!!! damn you, son of a bitch!
88 to gary's left shoulder. had to hurt...
that's low, blue. fucking cocksucker.
GI Joe got tossed. good for him. umpire blew it all game. they should be held more accountable...
catcher's interference, walk, hit batsmen, manager ejection...full count...
didi hits a 2-run double! 8-3, men on 2nd & 3rd, nobody out.
fuck you, blake parker.
didi's our cleanup hitter tonight. he was quickly down 0-2 before working the count full. not easy with that fat fucking jerk behind the plate. solid hit on a high pitch for the knighted one.
well, crap - chris young is out of the game.
8-4, man on second, one out.
another bad strike call...
the ump should be fined. same pitch to headley just called a ball...
gritner hitting for judge.
 [rant alert] I guess you missed the 70s. The Royals were our most hated rival. George Fuckhead Brett. John "foot out the box" Maybury. Freddy pint sized prick Patek."
I HATE the Royals, HATE the Royals, HATE the Royals. IMHO, you can't be a true Yankee fan and like the Royals.
You might as well say you like the Red Sox. KC was hated much, much more by Yankee fans than the Sox in the 70s.
Having said that, it's clear that these Yankees are just not good enough to hang with teams like the Royals and Jays.
4 pitch walk to gritner!
here comes Tex as the tying run. holy crap!
another pitching change. our 9th batter of the inning. damn pineda and, especially, blake parker. and GI Joe's terrible managing of pitchers...
 totally different era and team. just the same laundry. at the very least, you have to admit the waterfalls are pretty cool! : )
big moment before riding off into the sunset...
tex grounded out on what would've been ball 4...
wow. you fucking suck, umpire!
yates missing gary's target by not a little...
at least gary didn't go hitless!
didi with another hit!
tying run at the plate. here's castro.
2 outs in the 9th...
same pitch. gotta swing at that, starlin.
castro ends the game with a weak swing on a ball in the dirt. terrible, awful, very bad, unprofessional, non-competitive at-bat.
feh. : /
 Sure. I would like to go to a game there, if I was in town. Beautiful ballpark. Lots of history.
Of course, I'm dying to go to Fenway, too.
 Look up "white flag" in the dictionary and you'll see a photo of Kirby Yates. [Also see: throwing in the towel]
 I drove past The "K" while on tour a long time ago, but didn't go to a game there. I played a gig right across the street from The Fens, but definitely did not go to a game there. In fact, I fucking *loathe* that ballpark as much as I do that team, it's players, fans, and ownership. Even if they weren't our hated and heated rivals, I would absolutely abhor that little league ballpark. I can't stand the monstah, the pole, the triangle, the scoreboard, the colors of the stadium. The whole 9. I don't understand why it's so appealing. I don't care for Wrigley either...
I do dig the Giants and have been to Pac Bell (I still call it that). It was awesome, as was gigging in the Bay Area! : )
 I feel the same about Wrigley. Fuck the "Cubbies" and their fans. They can keep losing for all I care.
Regarding the NL, Chavez Ravine is beautiful. I have also been to Candlestick (at about 3-4 years old), back when my dad was the AA gate director at SFO. One of his jobs was keeping Willie Mays happy, which naturally equals killer seats, signed balls etc.
How's that for age, Jazz?
