The TRUTH about Sports

GRAND SLAM, GRAND SLAM, GRAND SLAM

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.
