Let me be the first to publicly say…
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
[End of ode.]
though you stole a spot in the postseason that would’ve been ours, you
knocked the Red Sox out so job well done. Johnny Depp would’ve had to
surrender his “cry-baby” tag to me if Boston had gone to the World
Series again. I don’t even want to imagine the heartbreak + anger I
would’ve felt if they had won another championship. No one
thought the Rays had it in them stay on top for the entire season, let
alone lasting through the postseason, but they now have a chance to
take it all with 4 wins against Philly. If they accomplish that, not
bad for a team that never saw October eh?
- Joba arrested for DWI on Saturday… tsk
tsk. Though the news utterly shocked me at first, after thinking about
it I was no longer surprised. Instant fame and a larger bank account
drives people to do stupid things, true story. Just ask all those
celebrities that have mug shots that will be made fun of for the rest
of their days. However, I hope that this is the first and only blip on
Joba’s “Things I Will Regret” list.
Red Sox vs. Rays
Could the postseason be any more obvious?
I uselessly wished the Red Sox would get knocked out first round by the
team that had their name imprinted on October all year, I knew this
matchup was screaming to be played and of course it would be. I bet the
Red Sox thought the Rays’ little attempt at being champs this year was
cute, and that they’d crumple under the pressure of the playoffs for
sure but… they’re not so cute anymore now huh?
the Rays locked up a spot in the postseason that would’ve been the
Yanks’, despite whether or not they deserved it, the Rays must beat the
Red Sox. I don’t even care if they play dirty. Do anything. If the Red Sox head to
the World Series again and, Baseball Gods forbid, win, I’d… well, I
don’t know what I’d do right now, but I’m sure my only options would be 1)
paper bag over my head for the rest of my days, 2) cry until I have
nothing left in my tear ducts or 3) ask Bin Laden if he has room in his hole for me so I can hide out till the Yanks win again.
Rays, for the love of America [or at least the America it would be if Obama would win the election], please beat the Red Sox.
- How ’bout them Dodgers? If Torre isn’t grinning every minute of the day, I know he wants to.
- To all Cubs fans: Welcome to ‘Ouch’ Town.
And thus, it begins… the offseason for the Yanks and the precious postseason for the teams that made it.
For what’s going on in Yankee Universe: The
first move of the offseason has been made and the Yanks have resigned
the Mariano of GM’s, Brian Cashman. I don’t think anyone believed Cash
would actually leave the team he’s help build, even though it was a possibility. However, now
that he’s officially staying on board for at least the next three
years, you can cross that off the checklist and feel a little relief.
For what’s going on in the rest of baseball:
The postseason has begun… and it’s time for my pick. I said
before that I wasn’t sure what team I’d be rooting for in October since
the Yanks decided to purposely drown themselves so the other teams can
get a shot… but, I’ve made my decision. Hello Chicago White Sox,
you’ve just been adopted for a month. No surprise. The Red Sox were not going to
get any support from me for obvious reasons. Same goes for the Angels.
The two teams left in the AL were the Rays [a.k.a. the out of nowhere,
backstabbing, must be cheaters] and the White Sox, lead by one crazy
s.o.b. So naturally I chose the team lead by the crazy s.o.b. I don’t
really care about the NL, but if the Dodgers make it to the WS, I’ll
root for them [well, all but the one that can't pull off any other
color than Red Sox Red] because I would love to see Torre stick it to
the morons that thought that a one year deal wasn’t an insult.
