We’ll Always Have Baltimore

Suffice it to say that YF spent a good half hour yesterday bearing his soul and ideas on the blogosphere and baseball with a producer with NPR, only to find today that his slot on said (okay, unsaid) NPR program had been filled by others. Jilted. Feh. The good news is Unsaid Show don’t play in this Big Apple, and showtime and gametime tonight awkwardly coincided. So frankly we weren’t too crazy about the whole meta-aspect of talking on radio about a subject that we should have been covering elsewhere. Which is a long way around of stating, this is your open thread for all of tonight’s actionin Baltimore, Boston, and Other Parts around this Great Nation—Go Yanks!

  • He hasn’t been hitting a lot, but when he has, they’ve sure been big. Giambi. 3-0. Fast start.

  • I’m sitting in a semi-darkened room with 200 Classical architects, listening to the opening lecture by Robert Adam, and thanks to Notre Dame WiFi and the wonders of the internet and MLB.com watching the Yankees smash the Orioles.
    I can’t believe this is the way I will watch this weekend’s series, but it’s A LOT better than nothing.
    Go Yankees!

  • Sigh. This may be my pre-World Series Inner Sox Fan talking, but at this moment, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Yankees do not lose another game, and the Red Sox do not win another…

  • 6 – 0 and 4 -1 — if those trends continue and we beat Fatty tomorrow, the last 2 games don’t matter.

  • Why on earth did the Sox trade for Stanton? Just for the Yankees, or have the rules changed, so that Stanton can be eligible for the postseason.

  • Just for the Yanks.

  • Matsui!!

  • PHEW! Yanks win. All on the Sox now.

  • Ortiz is unreal

  • Who’s better in 2005? Stanton or Embree?

  • Damn. I don’t know about the other YFs out there, but the last thing I wanted to see was Manny and Papi rallying the Sox from 4 down with huge dingers, and then friggin’ Papi getting the game-winning hit, with Shaggy scoring and hugs and helmet/butt slaps all around in Fenway, etc. In other words, I didn’t want to see the kind of win for the Sox that lights a fire. Alas, there’s your momentum-builder–the Idiots are back. Yanks have a game in hand, thank God, but this weekend promises to have a serious playoff vibe going. Could we be lucky enough to have a mini-playoff series this weekend, a playoff game in the Bronx Monday, and then seven more in the ALCS?? Don’t know if the old ticker would be able to handle all that. And the server that runs this blog is gonna have smoke coming out of it…
    ps – I still think ARod should be MVP. Defense. And YF, I think Jeets bunts of his own volition most of the time.

  • 1. Jeter shouldn’t ever bunt. He’s much too good a hitter to do that.
    2. I’ve seen the stats, and even as a Red Sox fan I think A-Rod’s stats are better including defense than Papi’s, but jesus, has there ever been a better definition of “MVP” than Ortiz? Homer in the 8th, single in the 9th to win a game that if the Sox had lost would have sunk their season? We’ve only seen him do it a million or so times now. There’s your MVP, boys and girls. It’s September, so of course Big Papi’s heating up.
