    In Left Field…. RZA! 

    Cash actually signed RZA to play left field.  He’s standing in for Randy Winn, who will go on tour with Wu Tang at the start of Spring Training.  Good trade.

    Is it me or does the greeting expressed here by Johnny Damon look a little like some other activity?

    McGwire Could Play Godzilla 

    Is it me or do their bodies look eerily similar?  Granted one was the result of radiation but still….

    No Moron Was Injured In This Picture 

    The funny thing is that the ball wasn’t drawn to his big mouth.


    Jimmy Rollins predicted his Phillies would win the World Series in five games on “The Jay Leno Show.”   Before Game one at Yankee Stadium, he stood by his prediction. “Well, of course we’re going to win,” Rollins told Leno. “If we’re nice, we’ll let it go six, but I’m thinking five and close it out at home. “If we play our game, we can beat everybody,” Rollins said. “We’ve beaten everyone they’ve put in front of us so far. That’s our plan. We didn’t come this far to not win.”   So why five games?   “I think it would be very tough to take four,” he said.  “You figure one game they’re going to find a way to win.  That’s the way it is.”

    Ok.  So the Yankees shut his pie hole and rather than congratulating the Yankees like his teammates and manager did, this is what he said to earn the douche label:

    “They were the better team this series. Do I think we’re the better team? I really do,” Rollins said. “They just executed.”

    Something New For Me 

    In the past few years I’ve come to appreciate the great work done at the LoHud Yankees Blog and I plan to start blogging when the 2010 season starts.  Well, actually Spring training.  Stay tuned.

    The Mick 

    Try this on for size. When Mickey won the Triple Crown in 1956, there was no live ball, no steroids and no expansion. He hit 52 home runs, drove in 130 runs (RBI) and batted .353. His slugging percentage was .705.

    I am of that generation that Billy Crystal and Bob Costas spoke about so eloquently. It is not really possible to understand unless you have experienced it. Mickey was larger than life. There was no pervasive media to expose the flaws that are a part of every man. When he died in 1995, I cried. Whenever I see the video clip of his last news conference and he talks about not having taken care of himself and not to be like he was, I get choked up. This was a man who was larger than life in a simpler time. Check out this site to read the Mickey Mantle Eulogy by Bob Costas.
