Let’s Go Mets


Yeah, I said it. For one, I’ve liked rooting for this Mets team. Two, I am sick and tired of the Giants. Fug ‘em.

So there it is. A rare occasion around these parts, when I’d really like to see Los Mets win.

Never mind Bumgarner:

Let’s Go Mets! Let’s Go Mets! Let’s Go Mets!

Next Up


Yeah, so our boys don’t have a role in the postseason production but that’s not gonna keep us from watching.

I prefer the O’s to the Jays. Then again, a Toronto—Texas rematch does sound tasty.

Never mind the waving white towels:

Let’s Go Base-ball!

The Last Game of the Season


Tex says goodbye.

Whatcha Got Left?


Gray and rainy in the Bronx as the Yanks season comes to a close.

Only two more games guys.

Never mind the gloom:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

The Final Weekend


And now, the end is near.

Never mind the playoffs:

The Last Gulp


David “Cookie Monster” Ortiz has been kicking Yankee ass almost as long as this blog has been alive. He’s an all-time great Yankee-killer and I will not miss him at all.

C.C.’s on the hill looking for some love from his offense.

Never mind the calendar:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Sunrise, Sunset


Cool and breezy.

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Yes, Yes, Again


Jays look to sweep the Yanks.

Never mind the chatter:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!


Exit Light


The Yanks are getting pushed around by the Jays and while it’s not official yet, they are pretty much playing out the string at this point.

But that all seems minor—the losing, C.C.’s resilient but hard-luck season, whatever is going on with Joe Girardi—in light of the news that Jose Fernandez, star pitcher for the Miami Marlins, died last night in a boating accident. This is truly a horrible day in the annals of the sport.

We’ll watch the Yanks today, and root for them, but with muted emphasis. Our thoughts and prayers are with Fernandez’s family.

Take Off (To the Great White North)


Back to their roles as spoilers the Yanks look to give the Blue Jays a hard time and a headache this weekend.

Here’s hoping they do just that.

Never mind those scruffy bastids:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Green Means Go


So keep it going, already.

Never mind the preamble:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Who Says the Yanks Can’t Win in Tampa?



Never mind the dome:

Late Innings


Yanks down in Tampa playing out the string…unless…nah, playing out the string.

Never mind the pitching changes: Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Aie, Papi


It’s pretty funny that the Yanks are giving Ortiz a little send off next time the Sox are in town. They should give him an all-expenses paid trip to the North Pole so he doesn’t change his mind—which he will—next year and come back to drive in more runs against the Bombers.

Sox buried the Yanks 7-4 last night and it’s getting late, fast, for the upstarts.

More this afternoon.

Oh, well, never mind reality:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Back to the Grill Again


Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Yanks took a tough loss last night—crushing, devastating, back-breaking, the worst!—but they’ll be back at it again tonight.

Never mind the hang-over:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Friendly Fire


The Yanks are in Boston for a big four game serious. Sox are in first place, a game ahead of the O’s , 2 ahead of the Jays, while the Yanks sit a couple of games out of the second wildcard spot with 2 teams ahead of them. That’s a whole lot of 2’s…and a lot still left to settle.

Be nice if the Yanks can cause the Sox some trouble, perhaps even some grief over the weekend. Or maybe the Sox will cause us misery instead. Usually either goes one way or the other, don’t it?

Never mind the standings:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Okay—Take Two


C’mon Fellas, how about givin’ ‘em a hard time tonight, whadda ya say, hah?

Never mind the gorgeous autumnal chill:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Encore Une Fois?


Yanks win again. Hell, no use steering now.

Never mind the breeze:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Let it Rain


A little wet in the Bronx has pushed the start back some.

They’ll get this one in—after another big win last night (despite the 3 rain delays).

Never mind that nasty kid, Archer:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Hot Hand


Yanks are surging as the bonus fun continues.

Never mind the heat (oy, is it hot):

Let’s Go Yank-ees!
