The Yanks had the solution to the bugs all along. They're attracted to moisture and sweat. All the Yanks had to do was put Giambi out in their bullpen and watch the swarm relocate.

Jere said...

That was really a shame--those bugs, which affected only the Yankee players. Everybody knows bugs swarm on gray material, but not on dark blue or white. It's really unfair and I hope the league decides to play the game over.

And the locusts sang, well, it give me a chill,
Yeah, the locusts sang such a sweet melody.
And the locusts sang with a high whinin' trill,
Yeah, the locusts sang and they was singing for me,
Singing for me, well, singing for me.

I was listening to Sterling and Waldman in the car while driving upstate last night, and they were outdoing themselves. Apparently nobody could predict, absolutely no one could predict, that a rookie might shit the bed in his second inning in his first playoff game and start throwing wild pitches that score a run.

Cleveland first baseman Ryan Garko: "The other guys on the Yankees were acting like there were bullets flying around their heads, not gnats. I mean ... this is the big leagues."

"I hope the league decides to play the game over."

I don't. For me, that plague of locusts just proved what Sox fans have been saying for such a long time: God hates the Yankees.

One of the sports rags on the blog though said Pedroia had been hurt. Is he alright? Will he be well enough to play in Los Angeles?

I assume you're being tongue in cheek, but in case you're not, in the top of the 9th Carmona had just as many of those midges on his face and neck as Joba the Hutt did. Didn't stop him from nutting up and leaving Abreu on 2nd with that wicked cutter to A-Rod.

Lost in all the insanity from last night was the insane fact that the ricochet from Joba's 2nd wild pitch was so hard that Posada actually had a real shot at nailing Sizemore at the plate. If that had happened and the Yankees had squirmed out of that inning & won the game, couldn't you just see them ripping off 2 straight in the Bronx and becoming a Team of Destiny (c)? Bounces like that seemed to go the Yankees' way a LOT not too long ago. Not anymore.

The Yankees are still not dead, of course, but they sure as shit better hope Clemens isn't the Clemens that's looked like shit all September. Because if he is, and that POS pen has to go long innings, Cleveland can pretty much start making plans for the ALCS.

Post game press conference - first question to Torre - Q. Joe, tonight Carmona, can you just talk about how he neutralized you guys and the struggles as a team you're having at the plate and with A-Rod continuing to struggle?

35 at bats in 11 innings and they had 2 walks and only 3 hits, but they have to ask about A-rod being 0-4. Why don't you freaking ask why Jeter is only batting .125 (1 for 8) in this series?

Everyone knows Jere's a closet MFY fan. Just read his blog.

That's very, very true. Yeah, they're bugs. They suck. They're probably the most annoying things you may have to encounter...

But you're playing Major League Baseball. You're supposed to be a professional.

I can't believe there was any doubt I was joking about my above comment! Were people really Googling "bugs attracted to gray material"? Come on, people!

Now I'm off to my gold mansion where I'll LET Michael Jordan beat me at the indoor basketball court George Washington built for me yesterday. (joke!--the mansion is SILVER!)

Hey, funny jersey I saw at Fenway last night: Sox jersey, on the back, the name was "Steinbrenner," and the number was "666."

I call bullshit! I don't think George Washington played basketball indoors. I'm pretty sure he only used outdoor courts.
