The Yankees got just what they needed tonight, and that folks, was the Oakland A’s bullpen… 16 earned runs in 3 innings? Robinson Cano, Russell Martin and Curtis Granderson all hit grand slams. The Yankees are in a pennant race against the Boston Red Sox. I’m about 99.9% sure that the wildcard is coming out of the AL East but its a pride thing between these two teams/cities. Nobody wants to get in as the wildcard. Good thing the Yanks bats woke up or else they were gonna get swept by the As and they’re 59-71 record. Looks like both the Sox and the Yanks have a majority of their games against the nasty teams left in their division so it’s gonna come down to who can beat up on the nerdy kid the most and we all know that’s a Yankee specialty. Now if you’re in New York towards the end of September, I’d pick up tickets for the Red Sox game because that’s gonna be a telling series. The winner of that series takes first in the East and the best record in the AL.
Who does Carlos Guillen and his part-time, 2 home runs ass think he is? The nerve of him showing up anyone, let alone 14 game winner Jered Weaver. Guillen hasn’t accomplished anything in his career in the majors. He’s never been in a big game in his life. It took Guillen almost 1/2 a minute to round the bases. Weaver should’ve charged Guillen before he rounded 2nd base. Weaver throwing at the next player’s head was exactly what 99% of pitchers would have done. Anyone that says otherwise either doesn’t understand the game or has been out of it for too long (yeah you Curt Schilling). It’s too bad that Weaver and Guillen didn’t see each other once more time that evening. I pray that the Angels see the Tigers in the post-season because I’d love to see Weaver nail Guillen in his 35 year old gut. Weaver is the ultimate gamer and Guillen, well, he’s a has been that never was.
