Big Yankees Weekend

So I made my first trip to the new Yankee Stadium this weekend and was lucky enough to see a Yankees/Red Sox game.  First, let me say that it was part of a great August sweep of the Roid Red Sox and included a David Ortiz press conference and a 15 inning walk off win.  Saturday’s game was a great 5-0 win with CC Sabathia taking a no-hitter deep into the 6th inning.

Overall I thought the new stadium was nice.  It lacks some of the intimacy of the old stadium but actually has good food choices coupled with wider walkways. I have two complaints, however:

  1. There was too much going on during the game.  Too much music played too loudly, too many animations on the scoreboard, too many times I was told to cheer.  I really do wish the stadium was a little quieter with fewer gimmicks.
  2. The bigger complaint is that I didn’t feel very welcome at the new stadium. I really felt like the attitude was that I should feel grateful to be at my team’s stadium. The staff seemed a little colder, the rules a little more rigid. I heard a new company is running security for the stadium. That might explain it.

I am looking forward to taking my son to the stadium when he gets older because the grass is just as green and the team is just as good. Let’s go Yankees!


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.

The Red Sox and Their Big Mouths

Now as a Yankees’ fan I’m a little pissed at how the team played this week against the rival Red Sox. They essentially rolled over and blew it. Fine. I’ll admit the Red Sox were the better team this weekend and move on. I’ve noticed though that every time the Red Sox beat the Yankees the organization from the players through the ownership start making snide comments.  Red Sox owner John Henry is trying to bait Mark Teixeira on twitter now.

Putting all the trash talk between fans aside, the owner should shut his mouth. What a classless organization the Red Sox are. Just remember John Henry, it’s not August yet. Your team will collapse, they always do.

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.

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.

Another Reason to Hate the Red Sox

A recent article on RedSoxRUs.com (aka ESPN) shows yet another reason to hate these idiots. Apparently they don’t’ want the individuals to care. If we’re winning, who cares if you have a bad at bat? Apparently Youkilis does and Manny Ramirez took a swing at him because he got upset.

It all happened because Manny complained about Youkilis’ habit of throwing bats, helmets and other objects in the dugout when he has a bad at-bat, something that has become a constant practice,” the source said.

“Other players have told Youkilis in the past about the situation, which makes him look selfish and that he is more worried about each at-bat than about the team. If Boston is winning easily, there’s no reason to throw objects all over the dugout because of a bad at-bat.

“There was a meeting where the team let Youkilis know that many of his teammates were tired of his explosive reactions for each bad plate appearance. It became very bothersome … more so when the team is winning and it’s in first place. There’s not much room for individualistic attitudes.”

Are you kidding me? A guy cares enough to take each at bat seriously and push himself and you get pissed at him? A guy has some fire and you criticize him for it?  What a classless team.

ESPN and it’s Red Sox Bias

I’m done with ESPN for so many reasons. It is now advertising movies on its website as news stories and for years it’s been so biased toward the Red Shits Sox. That being said, recently they attacked Hal and Hank for bashing the Red Sox “Nation.” Check it out here.

I’m happy to see the Yankees’ ownership step up and tell us they want to win. Personally I think the Yankees are entitled to win the World Series EVERY SINGLE YEAR. I’m going to find a new source for sports news on the Interwebs.
