The YFSF John Sterling Call Contest: Mark Teixeira

The signing of Mark Teixeira means that the Giambino! is gone, and that means we lose one John Sterling home run call, but gain another. This is your chance to predict what Sterling's call will be for the newest Yankee slugger. The commenter with the best entry (as judged by the moderators) will win a YFSF mug. If anyone actually nails the name (we'll find out in April), that person also gets a mug. Here's my attempt:

"Well, Suzyn, isn't that just like baseball. Yesterday the Yanks couldn't hit worth a lick against Sidney Ponson, and today they're knocking Josh Beckett around."

"Sidney will be Sidney."

"Isn't that the truth!" (Sound of screaming fans in background. Someone has clearly hit a home run. 5 seconds elapse) "There it goes! It is high! It is far! It…is…gone!!! A shot by the Excellent Texellent!"

Obviously I have set the bar low. Have at it!

  • “Tex Mark’s the spot!”
    Inevitable, right? I can smell the coffee in that mug already.

  • Suzyn Waldman after a Teixeira homer, “At 6pm the Rays are at home against the Redsox. At 4pm the Braves will play the Mets. At 10pm the A’s host the Angels…..”

  • “It is high, it is far, it is…..ALL ABOUT MEEEEEEEE!!”
    So, no different than any other Sterling call.

  • I am still waiting for Suzyn to break into a rendition of “The Impossible Dream” from her Man of La Mancha performing days.

  • “it is high…
    it is far….
    it’s a ground rule double for nick swisher sweet.
    good news coming from the tampa complex today. mark teixeira will have his cast removed on monday and begin a rehab regimen in hopes of returning next year.”
    oops. i guess that’s more of a dialog than a cute nickname. in that case, i’ll go with “albatex”.

  • Sterling already has an “X marks the spot” call, for Nady.
    I’ll go with “Mark Tex the spot”

  • Stolen from RAB:
    “A Tex message to the fans in right field!”

    doug YF December 25, 2008, 4:09 am
  • “It is high…it is overpriced…it is…gone! The Yankee payroll has done it again, as they lose another to Tampa, 5-2!”
    (Man, the Tex signing is making me a nastier person. I really don’t like what I’m becoming here.)

  • He’s Teixeira’d the cover right off the ball.
    Te-shair Genius.
    It’s a real 180!

  • how about calling it a “tex tater”.

    e.w.w.jr. December 29, 2008, 3:58 pm
  • After the home run call…..just another tex message

    stuart steinberg December 29, 2008, 6:14 pm
  • “It is high! It is far! It…is…gone! There-a goes Teixeira!

  • lets not forget the reason for kicking your radio a minimum of 162 times…
    “IT IS HIGH!!!! IT IS FAR!!!!! IT ISSS…caught in shallow right field”
    thanks john
    signed,

  • OH, YESSS!! GO!! GO!!! YES!! YES!!! YESS!!!! … CLUNK!
    Sorry. That’s Ron Santo calling Milton Bradley’s first Cub homer and then falling off his stool. (If you think it couldn’t get worse than Sterling/Waldman, imagine Sterling/Santo.)
    I was gonna go with the Tex message theme but I’m 11 days late on it.
    Sterling isn’t above a Texas Hold ‘em theme, although I can think of nothing specific at this time.
    (And someone answer me this: If the Yankees are willing to dish out $480 million on three contracts this off-season, why the hell can’t they find money to get a decent radio team?)
