Start of the Ending

The Yanks are back in the Bronx where they’ll play eight games in the next eight days. This is the final home stand of Derek Jeter’s career.

Our guy Martin Prado is out, the poor bastard. At least Cervelli’s back.

Masahiro threw today. Not exactly sure why the Yanks are so eager to bring him back this year.

Couple Few

The Yanks have kicked the Orioles’ can for a long time but that’s all over now. Our boys are gasping for breath in the playoff hunt, O’s are cruising to October.*

But I’m not a Pimp and I Don’t Walk with a Limp

When a team is as sucky-good as the Yanks it’s hard to get too excited but we still tune in. Maybe not for the whole game–a little bit on the radio on the way to pick up your kids–but we still check it out because the Yanks are still our boys. That doesn’t change even if they are half-horseshit.

Only a few weeks left in our boy Jeter’s career. That alone is worth watching.

Strictly Business

tumblr_naeedd42Gr1qa2qxto1_500 Yanks and Royals both looking to take care of business this weekend. Yanks hanging on to slim playoff hopes, not that anyone  expects them to make it.

The good news is that big, bad Michael Pineda is on the hill tonight. Man, does this dude needs a nickname or what? I mean, c’mon, just look at him. Any thoughts? I haven’t landed on one yet.

The Yanks host the Sox and there ain’t much at stake but the Bombers’ flickering playoff hopes.

All that and Zoilo Almonte was designated for assignment. At least Zelous is still around.

Do You Believe?

…In these Yankees? Do they have a ’95 September run in them? Remember when it was Mattingly’s last month of baseball. Mebbe they’s kin do something likewise for DJ.

I Can See Clearly Now

tumblr_nay41zRuJc1qbhl2oo1_1280 It’s the big fella, Pineda. Yo, we haven’t talked about it much but the one thing that stands out to me about Pineda is his swagger. He’s got great stuff, clearly, and some attitude to back it up. Yanks haven’t had a cocky dude like him as a starter for awhile.

The boys need him to be on today. Ellsbury’s out of the line-up.
