Sunday Evening Post

Whereas I was unable to chime in during the Red Sox’ elimination game due to work, YF has just gone and completely abandoned his belovedly sitting-on-the-brink Yankees for parts unknown.  Our hunch is he’s somewhere in the wilderness up north, in a log cabin with some circa year 2000 Yankees memorabilia, a satellite dish, a bottle of Mad Dog, and a life-size diorama of a certain shortstop.  I’ll take it upon myself to open up the site for pre-game, in-game, and post-game commentary, and I’ll do my best to channel YF during the contest.  Look for my posts, exclusively about the "peerless way Derek reads the ball off the bat", or the "incomparable way our hero digs into the box before an at-bat", or "how Jetes’ dental work has no match in the history of the world" or "how Miers was the wrong pick, it should’ve been DEREK!" in the comments portion below. 

Have at it, Yanks fans, Angels fans, and stragglingly embittered Sox fans, not myself of course.

  • We smell no-hitter for at least a few innings.
    YF would agree.

  • or a perfect game, or a shutout! Jinx-tastic John!

    SF October 9, 2005, 8:21 pm
  • We only believe in curses against other teams.

    john yf October 9, 2005, 8:27 pm
  • Who? The White Sox?

    SF October 9, 2005, 8:28 pm
  • Chacon looks bad. Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good, to quote some old school…

    SF October 9, 2005, 8:35 pm
  • Let’s go Angels.

    Hudson October 9, 2005, 8:40 pm
  • Nice break, that never hit Posada’s foot.

    SF October 9, 2005, 8:41 pm
  • Yeah, Jorgie!! Way to nail Figgins… Huge.

    Spidey October 9, 2005, 8:56 pm
  • safe. another lucky call.

    SF October 9, 2005, 8:57 pm
  • Don’t mess with Jorgie!! Go grab your glove, Vladdy!

    Spidey October 9, 2005, 9:00 pm
  • When did he decide to go? After Posada picked up the ball? Good idea, made terribly late.

    SF October 9, 2005, 9:01 pm
  • The Angels just gave away two baserunners. Sloppy.

    Hudson October 9, 2005, 9:02 pm
  • Gee, this sure is fun. SF and his alter ego try to spread his misyery. Ciao.

    john yf October 9, 2005, 9:02 pm
  • This game may be over by my 10pm bedtime!

    SF October 9, 2005, 9:08 pm
  • Hey Spidey: what are you going to do if Torre brings in Flash? Will I be able to hear the scream 20 blocks uptown?

    SF October 9, 2005, 9:09 pm
  • You might hear a repeated thumping sound, which would be me banging my head against one of plaster walls of my apartment.

    Spidey October 9, 2005, 9:34 pm
  • All of a sudden, Flash seems irrelevant. Two runs for the Halos. Chacon still pitching a great game overall, but damn, can we score some runs for him already?? WTF?!

    Spidey October 9, 2005, 9:36 pm
  • Yes, Sheff! It’s about time. Let’s keep it going…

    Spidey October 9, 2005, 9:45 pm
  • Bedtime. Honestly. I wasn’t joking earlier.
    Maybe it’s against my own interests, but I am hoping this site is irrelevant until the hot stove heats up, ideally in an hour or so…

    SF October 9, 2005, 9:58 pm
  • RUBEN!! Uh, Cano, way to almost pull a Jeremy Giambi and make the play at home close. That’s Vlad Guerrero out there, not David Eckstein. Anyway, game tied, come on, Jeets!!

    Spidey October 9, 2005, 10:19 pm
  • Mo: 1-2-3. One more just like that…
    (Although some insurance runs would be nice!)

    Spidey October 9, 2005, 10:43 pm
  • Thank the Lord for Mariano. See you in Anaheim tomorrow.
