It’s a Family Affair

Would you believe these Yanks? Now, that was a fun season. Let’s hope there is more to come and not some bitch-slap of a one-and-done tomorrow night against the Twins, who have Karma on their side, many times as they’ve taken it on the chin agains the Yanks.

Never mind that just yet. It’s been a memorable summer. Maybe more to come.

In the meantime: Thanks, Yanks!

I agree Alex. An unexpectedly fun season, and one which stirs (dare I say) hope going forward. Tuesday night is a nerve-wrecker; I hate the one-and-done in baseball. Personally, I'd prefer to see 2 out of 3 for the wild card. (Even better, expand MLB, create 4 divisions of 4 teams, and the winners play. No wild card BS).

Any now, it's time to bring my chair from the pre-72 Yankee stadium down to the family room, find my lucky Yankee hat (with the green color under the front brim), and my #7 pinstripe jersey for the home game on Tuesday.

Is it Tuesday, yet? Yanks have beat twinkies 9 games in a row in playoffs. Shudder...

I’m not going through baseball withdrawal, no sir not at all.

Man, not even a West coast national league game.

[1] Show us a pic of that chair!
[2] Huge shudder...'the law of averages...'
[3] Unacceptable to not have any baseball on today. Amusing myself with some playoff previews while listening to 'Tago Mago' here at ACME Investigations this morning..

I wouldn’t get rid of either WCs. Keeps more teams in the race longer and forces tough decisions. Do you think you’re out of it and sell? Oops, Twinkies. Are you going to go all in and keep the team together? Oops, Royally fucked.

Plus I don’t want another 1980, where the Os went home despite the second best record in baseball @ 100-62, because the Yankees won 103.

That Toe-Night Show has got to be the best thing ever. No disrespect to The Captain, but can you imagine that in the Derek Jeter Yankees?

Fun returns to the Bronx.

My big question is who starts in the outfield and who's going to DH. I'm thinking Ellsbury at DH, Hicks in CF?

#6 You are correct. Hicks is a BIG upgrade on Ellsbury's throwing arm and the Twins are fast AND aggressive.
