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?
- 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.
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.
On Deck: Joba’s first start of the season, going head to head against Gil Meche, with a game time of 2:10 p.m.
