IRS, CIA, FBI, COD, DNF, PED, HGH, AOL, CIA, BAC (when pulled over), FAQ, GOP, GPF (for youse windows guys), NRA, KKK, QVC.. that’s a short list off the top of my head of acronyms I despise, or despise what they represent. Let’s add MRI to things that make me say “WTF, mate?” Both Rocket and ARod have gone under the scrutiny of that ingenious device that works by, according to my highly technical understanding, using magic faeries to sniff the black bile, yellow bile, phlegm, and blood that compose the four humours to determine if a leeching is in order. Remarkably, ARod is in the lineup and will play the field. edit: Joe must read my gamers before finalizing his lineup.
In the mean time, it’s game three of the current set with the Mariners as Phil Hughes faces off against Jarrod Washburn. Following his victory over the Tribe on August 10th, Hughes has started four more games, taking the loss in his last two starts, and receiving a no-decision in the two prior. In the 21 2/3 innings over that span, he has allowed 18 runs. It’s been a rough recovery road for the young Yankee hurler. Washburn is 1-1 against the Yankes on this year, blanking NY at SafeCo (a game I had the displeasure of watching in person, though the accomodations were fine) and losing his previous start at the Stadium.
An interesting lineup follows. Comment away, PDQ.
