Go, Slappy, Go!

Keep on putting him in pressure situations, Yankees!

Prove that 2004 was no fluke!

He's not hitting solid with an accelerated bat head.

whoever thinks the Tigers will win the ALDS, come forth now. nobody needs monday morning quarterbacks.

L-girl said...

I have no doubt the Tigers will win. I expect to see them in the World Series, and I hope to see them win it.

L-girl said...

nobody needs monday morning quarterbacks.

You know what else nobody needs?

redsock said...

Here I am.

[steps forward]

In 4. No trip back to NY.

L-girl said...

Oh yeah, definitely in four. I don't expect to see the Yankees win more than one game this post-season.

Gutch220 said...

Alright.... your predictions are set. Now we just have to wait and see. I respect your choices, but I think your mistaking hope for prediction. I fully expect all of you to HOPE the Yankees lose.

-You know what else nobody needs?

HIV?...oh you meant me, haha. good one.



....as the A's take a commanding 8-2 (!)lead...

I think Maddux will win tomorrow.

Woti-woti said...

Well, I was wrong about the Twins, here's hoping I'm wrong about the Tigers. A's/Tigers should make FOX/ESPN squirm nicely, too. Not sure what it does to Gutches.

L-girl said...

Not sure what it does to Gutches.

:-)

So the A's finally make it out of the DS. It's about time.

redsock said...

I respect your choices

Mighty white of you!

If Detroit wins tonight (against an iffy Eunuch who hasn't pitched since 9/23), they have a very strong advantage in Game 4 with Bonderman v Wright.

Even if there is a Game 5, well, you know these Yankees ... they can grab onto first place in September, but in October, when shit really counts, they choke.

Jere said...

Joe Morgan just said that Randy Johnson pitching is "good" for the Yankees, and that another good thing for the Yankees is A-Rod.

Aren't those the two big uncertainties of the team right now? Did he mean to say "bad"? Twice?

L-girl said...

Don't think too much about what Joe Morgan says. It's bad for your brain.

Jere said...

Okay, well what about Jon Miller? He just said that Bobby Abreu held Bernie Wiliams to a single.

Jere said...

Randy's cursing.

Randy's cursing!

L-girl said...

Hey, he's good at something. He curses well.

L-girl said...

Okay, well what about Jon Miller?

I'm telling you, it's harmful. Turn back while you still can.

redsock said...

CI GIDP to end the MFY 3rd.

Get back out there, Ugly.

Jere said...

But he was part of the greatest double play of all-time the inning before, if you listen to Morgan and Miller. I mean, sure, it was the kind of double play where you only record one out, but still...

Jere said...

Did you ever hear that Captain Cook story before? That was some funny shit by Harwell.

L-girl said...

Did you ever hear that Captain Cook story before? That was some funny shit by Harwell.

At work. Gameday. Tell us!

Jere said...

Captain Cook, who sailed to Antartica, came to Detroit and threw out the first ball at the 1909 World Series. It was so cold in Detroit, he left after 3....

Other Harwellisms so far (he's been in the booth for a while, and they're just letting him announce):

"charged with excessive window shopping": caught looking at strike 3

"stood there like house on side of road": well, the same thing.

San Francisco Red Sox Fan said...

A's/Tigers for ALCS. A's win world series.

It better be A's/Tigers and they better go 7 games 'cause I got tickets to game 7!!

Jere said...

L-Girl: did Gameday tell you that the ball they just called foul is now COVERED in foul-line chalk like a powder puff? There's a freaking green space where the chalk is missing. After earlier caliing a borderline call a "bad call," these geniuses keep making excuses for the two umps who were each ten feet a way from the ball landing directly on the line and kicking up a hunk of white stuff. Say it now! Say "that was a horrible call"! Unbelievable.

Jere said...

Bye, Eunuch.

L-girl said...

When I got home and turned on the game, they were talking about supposed chalk dust, which of course doesn't exist because it's paint, not chalk.

A's??? No way. NO WAY. TIGERS.

5-0 right now. The Yankees are toast.

L-girl said...

excessive window shopping :)

Jere said...

Yeah, I heard the paint story. But I thougt I might confuse people by calling it paint, since it's always called chalk. In Little League, it was "lyme."

L-girl said...

Lyme? Must be a CT thing.

redsock said...

7th inning: Dumbo doubles, but Shemp grounds out to second (Dumbo to third), Peanuthead whiffs and Canoe grounds out first to pitcher.

Then Granderson homers to lead off the home half. Hahaha. 6-0.

L-girl said...

What redemption for Kenny Rogers. Even I'm happy for him tonight.

redsock said...

MFY 8th:
Damon (bcf) strikes out swinging.
Jeter (bsffbb) walks.
Abreu (fs) strikes out looking.
Zumaya relieves Rogers.
Slappy (bc) flies out to RF in RCF.

Way to cleanup!

redsock said...

Final: 6-0.

It's gggrrrrrrreat!

Woti-woti said...

Jeez, that was almost as much fun as a Red Sox win. Hope Bonderman catches some of what Rogers had. What a job! In, out, up, down, changing speeds. Jayzus. Morgan must have a bundle on the Yanks with a pyschopath bookie. He's practically peeing his pants for a Yankee win.

Jack Marshall said...

Heh, heh, heh.

1) Well, in all fairness, we knew the AL All-Star team had to lose eventually.
2) And the best part is, George has to pay Randy Johnson for two more years! Wonder what that ERA will be in 2008? But we know that the ESPN analysts will still be saying he's a big game pitcher who's pitching GREAT after two innings!
3) Looks like George may have to pay 300 million to get his next World Championship.
