It’s Becoming A Trend: “L” is the New “W”

Yankees Lose 3 Straight and Played Badly….AGAIN

Am I being too hard on the Yankees? I mean, they only lost 3 in a row. To answer my own question, I’m not being too hard on them. It’s the way they lost. Game 1, ok bad luck, but they still didn’t hit the ball. Game 2 was very upseting. No pitching. And yesterday, with the hottest pitcher on the hill, we lost in an embarrassing blowout. Since when do the White Sox actually hit? Since when do the Bronx Bombers fail to bomb? Obviously, since Thursday. It’s starting to make me angry. I shouldn’t have to throw my shoes at the TV 3 days in a row. Anyway, the Yankees lost 14-4. I don’t even want to recall the game, but for the sake of the blog I have to.

Pitching Analysis: A.J. was way off yesterday. He gave up 6 runs in the 2nd inning. Who does that? Just get someone out! I know A.J. can’t be good every time out there, but he shouldn’t be blown out! I can’t even talk about it. He gave up 7 runs on 10 hits and 2 bases loaded walks to the #9 hitter in 4 & 2/3 innings. There is no excuse for that. His command was all off, and he and Posada just were not in sync.

The bullpen stank as well. Bruney gave up a run on 3 hits in 1 & 2/3 innings. Robertson pitched 2/3 an inning of, omg scorless baseball? What a novel idea! Phil Coke was terrible yesterday. Injust 1/3 of an inning, he gave up 6 runs on 3 walks and 4 hits. Disgusting. But Mark Melancon pitched a scorless 2/3 of an inning. Maybe we’ll be seeing him late in the games soon. Overall, dreadful, disgusting, upseting pitching. Enough said.

Defensive Analysis: While Bruney was pitching, Jeter made an error on a routine play, and that sent Tim McCarver and the other idiots on Fox into a state of joy. SHUT THE F*** UP! Leave Jeter alone. He made an error! WOW! IT’S SO FUNNY! I hate when they are on Fox. All the commentators do is pick on the Yankees and mention the times they stank. Wait, this is the defense paragraph. The defense was nothing to speak about, it was hard to tell since they were chasing after balls most of the time anyway.

Offensive Analysis: There wasn’t any. That’s all.

Ok sorry. I’m just so aggrivated. On the bright side, Jerry Hairston had a nice Yankee debut, going 1 for 3 with a walk, RBI and a run. Jeter and Tex both got 2 hits, one of Tex’s was a 2-run single. Arod had 3 hits. I don’t get why Girardi played Ransom yesterday. He was ridiculously bad. He struck out 3 times in 4 at-bats. I couldn’t watch. In total they only got 8 hits. They were horrible with runners in scoring position. With bases loaded and no one out in the 6th, they only managed 1 run. That is not acceptible. Overall, the offense was disgusting.

Joe Giradi can't watch as his team suffers a 14-4 beat down at the hands of the White Sox.

That’s how we all feel, Joe.

Another huniliating loss for the Yankees. Before is seemed like all they were doing was winning, now all they are doing is losing. “L” is the new “W.” This has to stop. The lead is now only .5 of a game, and before today is over there probably won’t be a lead. They have to win now. That’s enough already. If I have to throw my shoe at the screen today, it will be thrown so hard that it’ll break the TV, go through the wall, and snap all the trees outside in half. I’m not kidding. (I may be exaggerating a bit, though.) Come on Yankees, win! The fate of my living room depends on it!

I don’t think the Yankees aren’t trying too hard, I think the pitching and the defense needs to step it up a notch because the White Sox are hitting them at all corners and angles. My advice to the Yankees is this, hit Mark Burhele hard. CC Sabathia needs to step up his game big time and the defense needs to play better. I think the Yankee offense is good, just their defense.

Cool off the White Sox before they get hot.

“L” does seem like the new “W.” Very well put! And my living room needs a win too, because I will be throwing sharp objects into every corner if the Yanks lose again today. Utter destruction!

“Instead of crying over the Yankee loss, I got mad. I threw my shoe at the tv, I punched myself in the thigh, I cursed whenever I was alone. If they don’t win today, I don’t know what I might do. HELP!”

Haha, I was alone except for my brother the entire game, so I was like “@#!@$ #@!@#@@ @#!@#!@#” (translation: BEEEEEEEEEP) on every frustrating situation. I don’t know about punching yourself in the thigh, though. That’s not healthy. Nor is throwing the shoe at the tv, lol. I may get mad, but I only unleash it on pillows. Two things I never do: I never endanger my technology and I never waste perfectly good food.

I’m praying for all living rooms alike today. They need a day off. First pitch is in mere moments. I’m at the edge of my rolly chair! We need a for-real W this time!

After seeing that comment about Tim McCarver I’m REALLY glad I missed the game… I hate that man with a passion that would make Satan blush. He is TERRIBLE and I hope he… well, I’m sure you can insert any horrible event in there and get the point.

Yes, well, I’m told that I’m a funny guy.

Haha, now now Virginia, would that be ladylike? I understand not wanting someone to curse all the time, but if it’s just an occasional thing, it shouldn’t be a problem. The problem starts when you start cursing in inappropriate situations…

Our living rooms are safe, Virginia. The Yanks did a great job today knocking Buehrle around and beating the White Sox. Now they can go to Toronto feeling a little better about things. I know I do.

Virginia – I’m finally home from vacation, or “family reunion” as they call it. The Yankees are creating havoc for my Dad and my daughter. I think the losses are getting to them. They even tried a “Let the Yankees Win” dance today – but it didn’t work. The Red Sox are catching up quickly…watch out!
