Yankees Bomb on Rangers

What else did the Texas Rangers want? A 3-run shot in the first inning by Josh Hamilton; tack on another 2 runs in the 4th and the Rangers knocked out C.C. Sabathia. Game over, right? WRONG, actually, it’s SEASON OVER for the Rangers.  This was the game they needed and they had all the pieces in place before their bullpen blew it. Don’t ever doubt greatness, as Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano showed who the Yanks really are.  Now the Rangers have the pressure on them for Game 2.  Remember, they haven’t won a home playoff game this postseason.  And if they’re counting on Cliff Lee to bail them out, they better think again unless Lee is pitching every game.

ODE TO YANKEE STADIUM

A moment of silent please… On Sunday night, the plug was pulled on Yankee Stadium. The last home game for the NY Yankees, a win by the way, before they play in their new stadium in 2009. Time to move across the street to the new and improved and modern Yankee Stadium. Yankee stadium, where the greats like Babe Ruth, Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle roamed. Out with the old, in with the new. But don’t be sad, let’s look at the positive side; Maybe the new stadium will help A-Rod out with his playoff woes?  Maybe the new stadium will convince Jason Giambi to shave that porn-stache he’s growning?  Maybe the new stadium will return them to the playoffs? OR, maybe the new stadium will be a dud, and the “Yankee Mystique” will be gone forever? Only time will tell.  But for now, enjoy Yankee Stadium and what it has stood for for the past 85 years, the home of one of the most hated teams in all sports. Hated because they’ve been winning for so long, sure, but nonetheless hated. You will be missed old friend.  R.I.P.

P.S. Where the heck was George Steinbrenner?

The Electric Backslide

So Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees are playing nice again, and reports are that the two parties have been in negotiations the past few days. What the @$%*? I thought Hank Steinbrenner came out and blasted ARod in the press after he opted out of hisarod contract. Wasn’t ARod booed mercilessly in New York? Won’t he always be second fiddle to Derek Jeter? I guess money talks and bullshit runs a marathon. Reports have it that the Yankees are willing to pay ARod $275 million over ten years, however the catch is that they don’t want to deal with Scott Boras, ARod’s agent. Looks like Rodriguez might throw his agent under the bus to get the money he wants. This is the same agent that got Rodriguez his last record setting contract, and now how soon they forget. We always knew ARod was spineless, but show some loyalty man! It’s not all about the money. Did I just say that? Take a little less, go play for the Angels where you’ll be happy. We won’t boo you here when you fail in the playoffs, we’re just happy to be there. You won’t be second fiddle to anyone on the team, Vladimir Guerrero doesn’t speak English and doesn’t really speak for that matter. If ARod ends up back with the Yankees it will be pathetic on all counts. Steinbrenner threw him out with the dirty bath water and now he backslides and negotiates with him. Let’s just hope this is a p  loy to drive up the bids by other teams.
