First Manny

Now David Ortiz.  Boy the Red Sox are just showing that their World Series teams were tainted cheaters aren’t they??  This article made my day.

Manny = Cheater

So, for all the Red Sox fans out there who have been giving Yankees’ fans a hard time.  Eat it!  Manny is on steroids and you know he didn’t just start last week. I’m guessing that Ortiz gave it up, thus the slump. 

Say what you will abou the Yankees but at least I know that during the World Series runs of the late 1990s that guys like Paul O’Neil or Tino Martinez weren’t juiced up. It’s nice to know that the Red Sox won their World Series through cheating.

A Simple Thought for the End of the Week

Let’s Go Yankees!  Beat those Red Sox.

Nick Swisher Trade Analysis

The New York Times Bats blog is fantastic.  I love this article regarding the evolution of the Nick Swisher trade. Essentially the Yankees traded a bag full of balls for a guy that seems great in both the locker room and at the plate. I love that we’ve finally got someone who is going to play his way into the lineup everyday.

Good Bye, You Won’t Be Missed. Now Please Shut Up.

Just a short note to mention the retirement of loudmouth Curt Schilling. Please drift away and shut your pie hole. I never liked you and had zero respect for you. Go live a quiet life in relative obscurity. Go Yankees!


Of course, notice how ESPN is already bowing down to Curt thanks to its pro-Red Sox bias

Trade Deadline

I always tell people who talk about the Yankees doing poorly and the Red Sox doing well, “it’s not August yet.”  It always seems that August is the month where the Yankees’ bewitch the Red Sox into losing and I love it.  This year, on the last day of July, the Red Sox shot themselves in the foot by trading problem child Manny Ramirez to the Dodgers.

I love watching the Red Sox self-destruct.

Big Sports Day

The Rangers lace the skates back up and take on the Penguins in game two of their series today. After blowing a three goal lead on Friday night and then getting screwed by the refs on a bad late penalty, Tom Renney is shuffling his lineup a bit today, playing Petr Prucha in an attempt to add some speed to his fourth line. I’m also hoping to see Sean Avery drive the Pens crazy. While the league may want Sidney Crosby to win a Cup, I’d much rather see the Rangers win it. What Gary Bettman never seems to get is that when the Rangers win, the NHL becomes relevant.

The Yankees are playing in Cleveland today, they need a win to help ensure they’ll have a .500 April. Another slow start leaves me wondering why Jason Giambi hasn’t been cut outright. The Yankees have some trouble spots this year, though I think Cano will play better and Morgan Ensberg will eventually win the 1st basemen’s job. They need to start hitting with runners in scoring position.

The NFL is holding its annual draft this weekend. It reminds me that football is not too far off. So far the family teams (Cowboys, Giants, Jets) seem to be doing alright. Let’s hope the Eagles and Redskins stumble.

Sean and I will be on the couch experiencing sports overload today.
