    Another Stinker 

    I was so pissed I didn’t watch the post game because I figured there would be a “sometimes you have to tip your hat to the opposing pitcher” quote. Bullshit. Javy’s line actually would’ve been good enough for a win if the Yankees would finally start their offense. CC tries to avert the sweep tomorrow. Damn it!

    No Hat Tipping! 

    King Felix is pitching great but the Yankees are playing timidly. Where’s the offense? If I hear any “tip your hat” to the pitcher quotes tonight, I’m going to blow my f**king top!

    Hughes Not Sharp As Yankees Drop Series Opener 

    Damn, Cliff Lee is good. Yanks could have won this game had Hughes not been so ordinary. Was it the the skipped start? Doesn’t matter as it looks like the Sux are still winning and the Rays are fading. Hang on for a crazy summer. Javy versus King Felix tomorrow.

    Yankees Win 8-6 To Take Series Against Dodgers

    After Chad Huffman (2 for 3 with 2 RBI) singled after a tough at bat against Broxton to bring the Yanks within a run, Sun Devil Colin Curtis had another tough at bat and hit a ground ball to score Grandy with the tying run in the ninth inning.

    Our terrible defense in the second inning just contributed to Andy’s tough outing and really put us in a tough spot until A-Rod hit a two run home run in the sixth inning. Game is tied and Torre brought in George Sherrill. Robbie was hitless in nine at bats against Sherrill and then proceeds to blast the second pitch for a home run and two run lead. Mo had held the Dodgers scoreless in the ninth and came on to close it out in the tenth. A fantastic win to go 4-2 on the west coast swing. A well deserved off day tomorrow before Lee and King Felix come in with the Mariners.

    Bad AJ 

    What can I say? I’m not going to pile on because it’s obviously mental at this point. Andy goes for the series win tomorrow.

    What a game. Frankly, like most Yankees fans the Torre stories were getting pretty tiresome. CC put that to rest with a dominating game of 8 IP 4 H 1 R 3 BB 7 K for his 9th win.

    When he hit Padilla after Padilla had drilled Cano, it was priceless. Gutless Padilla tried to stare down CC but thought the better of it and slinked off to first base. CC was giving him the peanut look* (see below) and that was that.

    A-Rod knocked in both runs with a double and home run. Looks like he’s starting to round into form.

    Three up. Three down. Three K’s. Freaking dominating. Now let’s see if AJ can turn it around. There was talk that he was tipping his pitches. We’ll see.

    * A number of years ago, I was at a Mets-D’Backs game in AZ with my dad, brother-in-law Rick and son Marco. My father had a bag of peanuts that he was sharing with us. All of a sudden he saw a strange hand reach into the bag. He turned and gave this drunk guy who decided to help himself  a look that frightened Rick. To this day, we refer to a really scary look as “The Peanut Look.”

    Yankees Take Series With The Yankee Hottie In The House 

    I am a fan of the very lovely and entertaining Marisol Russell AKA The Yankee Hottie. When I found out she was taking a west coast swing to see our beloved Yankees, well I had to meet her. We finally got to meet during tonight’s game and I’m convinced that we won the last two games because Marisol was in the house. It was great meeting her as one of her tweeps. Thanks Marisol. Kick ass in LA.

    Yankees Win 6-5 To Take Series Against D-Backs

    This was a tough series emotionally for me and my son because of the 2001 World Series. We were at all the games and it took last year’s championship to finally wash the bad taste out of my mouth. However, there was still the need to take care of business in this series and this game was a fitting conclusion. The Yanks couldn’t score RISP all game and it was looking bad until Curtis hit the eventual GW home run in the top of the tenth inning.

    Okay, now we have Mariano starting his second inning in the bottom of the tenth after batting in the top of the inning. Bloop single by Drew and a double by Upton and we have second and third, no outs. Intentional walk to Montero to load the bases. Shades of 2001…. no freaking way I want to be in that ugly ballpark with the possibility of Mo being on the mound with Arizona celebrating a walk off win. Oh, Joe of little faith. Young fouled out to Cervelli…. one out. LaRoche popped out to A-Rod…. two outs. Reynolds strikes out. Game over. Yankees win. THEEEEE YANKEES WIN!

    Holy shit.

    Since I am a vocal Yankees fan living in AZ who was at the 2001 World Series, this was a much needed win. Don’t want to give these yahoos any more flashbacks to 2001. Andy was superb going seven innings with two runs on seven hits with seven strike outs. Alex appears to be rounding into form with that 2R HR and four Yankees at two hits.

    The best part of this game was former Sun Devil Colin Curtis getting his first major league hit, a laser beam to center that dropped for a 2R double. As a Sun Devil, having to see Pedroia, Leake and Davis play for opposing teams and be successful is bittersweet. This makes it right… a Sun Devil Yankee!
