Watching Mike Mussina Pitch Makes Me Smile

22 08 2007

Well, it’s 7-1 Angels, in the bottom of the second inning and the Yankees finally take Mike Mussina out of the game.

Wow…Mussina is a terrible pitcher.

Last week he gets knocked around by the Tigers. I think there was a Grand Slam in the first inning…. (See picture below).
Mussina - Tiger Loss

Now this.

As a Yankee Hater, watching him pitch puts a smile on face 🙂

Another A-Rod Controversy? Why Not…

31 05 2007

I was just relaxing Wednesday night, not doing much. Lots of sports on TV, but I wasn’t really paying attention to anything in particular. While my wife was watching Shear Genius, I decided to check out the score of the Yankees-Blue Jays game and got another reason to hate A-Rod.

As soon, as I switch the channel, Jorge Posada hit a routine infield fly ball. There were two outs in the top of the 9th so the runners (Matsui and A-Rod) were running. As A-Rod was running between second and third, it looks like he yelled, “I got it!” throwing the Jays’ John McDonald and Howie Clark off while their were trying to catch the ball.

The ball dropped and the Yankees tacked on another run to their lead. You could not hear A-Rod say anything, but you can tell he definitely said something as he was passing the Toronto players. After the umpires calmed down John McDonald and Blue Jays manger John Gibbons, the game resumed. The Yankees won 10-5. Just another un-classy move by an un-classy baseball player.

One question: Can this guy A-Rod avoid controversy?

Remember this one?

While the Yankees have been losing over the last few days, A-Rod has been out in Toronto going to strip joints, staying in different hotels than the rest of the Yankees, and getting photographed with women who aren’t his wife. Now this?

Here’s a piece of advice: start acting the great player you are. If you want to be remembered as a classless ball player, then you are the right track. But if you want to be known as the great offensive baseball player, then start acting like a man and not a little bitch. Just remember, the Baseball Gods have a way of pissing on those that piss on the game. Have fun at Fenway this weekend A-Rod…hopefully the Red Sox put you in your place.

Here are a couple quotes after the game

A-Rod: “That play happens to me three or four times a week, except it’s not at third base, it’s over in foul territory by the dugout”………..”I just said, ‘Hah!’ That’s it,” Rodriguez said. “Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.”

Blue Jays Howie Clark: “This is my 16th season and it’s never happened once”

Johnny Damon: “I wasn’t sure that was allowed. If it is, maybe we’ll keep on doing it.”

Frustration Sets in for the Yankees

30 05 2007

The negativity of the Yankees and their losing ways has finally reached Roger Clemens down in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Monday night. Clemens took a simple, innocent question from a reporter and blew it completely out proportion, getting extremely emotional. Have all the Yankees finally cracked? Will the Clemens experiment be all for nothing?

The answer to both these questions is “yes”.

If you haven’t seen the Clemens press conference meltdown yet, check this out

After listening to ton of sports talk radio in the New York area, I’m getting the impression that Yankee fans are finally coming to the realization that while Clemens will be a fantastic additions to the Yankees’ pitching staff, he is no savior.

This isn’t basketball or football, where one player can come back from an injury and literally take over a game. Clemens will be able control the Yankees destiny once every five starts. That’s it. The other side of the equation is when Clemens pitches, the Yankees need to hit, which they have neglected to do this season.

The question now is this: Are the Yankees done?

I have a real hard time saying that the Yankees are done. But if they continue to lose and if they get swept by the Red Sox this weekend at Fenway, the Yankees will have an extremely hard time climbing out of the hole that they have dug for themselves.

Here are a couple predictions for the Yankees this season

The Yankees will make a run at the American League Wild Card, but will lose out to the Indians

Mike Mussia will complain all season long about being a “creature of habit” and complain when games are cancelled on days when he is pitching

Brian Cashman and Joe Torre will be let go at the end of the season

Don Mattingly will become the new manager, thus bringing the “Curse of Don Mattingly” full circle.

Roger Clemens will take his money after winning 10 games this season, go home to Texas and start preparing to scam another team out of millions next season. (Watch out Red Sox!)
