Dominance & A Double Dose Of Excellence

First, I present to you the dominance:

That pretty much says it all for this game doesn’t it?

Side Notes:

- Though I hate to slam Michael Kay [because unlike the many that are dissatisfied with him, I actually enjoy his  play by play better than any other] he was unfortunately clueless today. At one point, a heckler decided to relieve his boredom by shouting out a few profanities and when the camera turned
to Joe G., who was obviously trying to get security on it, Kay didn’t know
what was going on, and thought Girardi was trying to call Jorge back
[who was on the batting circle]… and then, upon realizing the
situation, decided to commend Girardi for having a keen eye on things
and the talent to pay attention to the field as well as  things like
that… Yeahh.. sorry, but I believe the hard part is not
paying attention to a thing like that. If I could hear the heckler half
a country away [thanks J for the geography lesson] then I’m sure
Girardi didn’t have to try hard to be aware of that.

- It was a day off for the B-Day boy, as Tex was scratched before the game because of a sore left wrist. He is scheduled to play tomorrow so it looks as if it isn’t serious, thankfully.

- I’m calling a TYIB award early. Winner of ’09 Weirdest Mid-Pitch Face: Jose Veras. Exhibit A: here. Exhibit B: here.

-
Though I do not gamble, in any way shape or form, *cough cough* I would
bet my live savings [currently 50¢] that Swish is in the lineup
tomorrow. Girardi would get a tomato tossed at him from New York if he
isn’t [and I'll make sure it gets there in time..]

- One person I don’t want to see in the lineup tomorrow: Cody Ransom. Give Pena a try, Cody’s not cutting it.

-
Finally the mystery as to how Swish is doing it is solved: 3 Red Bulls
a game.. I smell a future commercial coming. I guarantee he rips the
skin off the ball one of these days.

P.S. Word has it that DJ Swish is going to use Thunderbolt in his next at bat for dramatic effect.

“Fined for what? Hitting the ball into outer space??” Haha. Priceless. That video is too funny :)

Great game and great CC/Swish/Jorge. Veras bothers me. He walks people, which is OK when you’re up 6-0 but not in close ones! I couldn’t figure the whole heckler thing out. Has anyone ever been tossed for yelling at a player?

I will admit, you are one of the rare fans that likes Michael Kay. I don’t mind him much, just as long as he has Coney and Flash or Flash and Paul or Coney and Paul….he needs some humor and more than that some real-life baseball experience in the booth with him. Which is why I sorely miss Kaat and Murcer.

I agree that it was funny he didn’t realize what Girardi was getting the cop’s attention for, especially considering that I could clearly make out what the jackass was saying and I was watching over the internet.

Veras is going to lose his tongue if he keeps that up! Yikes! Or, he may catch a fly or two :O)

Sarah – Lol, that’s my favorite part. Swish is hilarious.
Jane – Well that heckler was tossed, so I guess that’s a yes, lol. Vera does need to kill the walks.
Beth – I could too.. I clearly made out “I f#*&ed your mother” at one point, lol. As I said, Kay was just clueless yesterday.
Jenn – It looks like he’s trying to catch flies doesn’t it? Lol..
– V

Veras invoking his inner Michael Jordan. I like it. V, your crush on Swish-dog is growing exponentially ;-)
