    Repost from the bottom of the last thread:

    If the Seahawks are ever allowed to wear this:

    The NFL will spontaneously combust.

    • Dela G

      i love those battle red jerseys by the way

      i have an andre johnson one

    • Jersey

      XFL, where have you gone.

    • whozat

      your links no worky

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

      Links not working. Assuming you’re talking about the crossing guard outfit the seahawks dawned, I’m with you. I understand they do it to sell more jerseys but who the hell would buy that shit?

  • Johnnyboy

    I was kinda hoping this game would go into extra innings with the score 0 – 0. Then some scrub would hit a HR for the walk-off win. Oh well.

    • whozat

      well, now it can be 1-1…

  • Dela G

    wow

    mark teahen?

    really?

  • Jersey

    Are they really booing?

  • pat

    Man, those psychos at It Is High It Is Far are right, Anthony McCaron does sound just like Ed Norton.

      I want to know how those nutjobs got linked to a good site like Sportspyder.

      • pat

        I know right, i got there every so often for a laugh but they shouldn’t be lumped in with the other more informative blogs.
        Oh well, good for them tho.

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    I really feel bad for the Royals, and the Pirates. They’re my two favorite non-Yankee teams.

    Good, solid histories, beautiful uniforms, amazingly sweet ballparks, great, loyal fans, and they’re cursed with horrible management. (Although Huntington is a big improvement over the past regimes).

    I want those clubs to start winning again. I’m tired of the Twins and the White Sox and the Cubs and the Cardinals.

    • Ivan

      /rant’d

    • Dela G

      how are their fans loyal when they don’t show up to the games?

      less than 3000 people saw the pirates beat the reds last week

      • pat

        Yeah, but that was extenuating circumstances, there were some hardcore protesters out and about that day.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Meh, some of that is protest.

        Hard to fault Pirates fans, they haven’t won since the first George Bush administration.

        • Ivan

          And the Royals haven’t seen the postseason since the Reagan Administration……Yikes!

    • Ivan

      Ever since I,ve been interested in sports, I,ve never seen these teams in the playoffs

      Lions
      Pirates
      Royals.

      Ewing Kauffman was one of my favorite Baseball owners. The Kauffman Foundation supports entrepreneurship all over the country, and if you’ve ever watched any PBS, he sponsored many of those shows as well. Good man.

        Brett’s gotta pull it back correctly and get in front of those balls so they don’t shoot up and blast him all in the face. That’s how you end up with stains all over your uniform.

        Well, to be fair, he was kinda “meh” in AAA. .252/.392/.433.

        Still, though, he’s gotta be able to do what Mike Jacobs does.

    • MikeD

      Have they called Kaaihue up? He didn’t exactly tear it up in AAA this year, but can’t understand why they wouldn’t be taking a closer look at him in September. Oh, wait. They’re the Royals.

  • Dela G

    great job by gaudin

    this guy has been 10000000 times better than i could’ve ever imagined

    • MikeD

      What didn’t make sense was they originally kept Mitre in the rotation and had Gaudin in the pen/6th starter even though it’s pretty obvious he’s better than Mitre.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        It wasn’t all that obvious at the moment.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    I love how Kay is surprised by that. Young people use text messaging, Mike. They weren’t around for those other things. Those games mean very little to me because they happened well before I was born. I was at A-Rod’s 500th game, and even if I wasn’t, I would’ve watched it on TV and it would’ve meant a lot more to me than games that happened before my birth. I’m pretty sure most of the people sending in those texts feel the same way.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Should read “500th home run game” but you get the idea.

  • Salty Buggah

    Whats that? A-rod is the 1st one to greet Gaudin? What is this world coming to?!!!

    Marte’s ERA in single digits! woooo

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    My favorite Yankees-Royals moment:

    When the Yankees created the Royals by setting up an illegal insider-trading deal (that helped sustain our dominance in the 1950’s and 1960’s) with Arnold Johnson, forcing the Kansas City A’s to be sold to Charlie O. Finley who then moved them to Oakland, creating a void to be filled by the expansion Royals.

  • scooter

    Chambliss’s homer isn’t the best KC/Yankees moment?

    The Pine Tar game was fantastic – I can hear Rizzuto yelling “Holy cow, here comes Brett” or something like that

    Not a super KC lineup – but a nice job by Gaudin

    Do we get a little IPK tonight after Marte?

    • Nels

      Wasn’t it Murcer doing the play-by-play?

    • MikeD

      The Chambliss HR is easily the most important (and best and most signifcant) moment in Yankee/Royal history. Yet I think the poll was phrased poorly. If it’s asking for “your” favorite moment, then it pretty much chops out those under 40 who didn’t see the Chambliss HR or the Pine Tar game. Not to mention (although one of the other posters did), teens/20s are probably more likely to be participating in a text poll.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Girardi won’t use Hughes or Rivera tonight, right? I would sure hope not.

    • Tom Zig

      I doubt he would. We can win this without the two of them.

  • Salty Buggah

    So Hochevar went 6 innings while giving up 3 ER, 8 Hits and a walk while getting only 2 K’s. Technically, thats a quality start but that came against the Yanks F lineup, so is it still a good outing?

    • JGS

      bust

    • Salty Buggah

      Let’s see if he improves

  • King OK

    I just heard pena hit a bomb, what was the sterling call?

    • JGS

      he didn’t have one–just said “how do ya like that??”

  • Salty Buggah

    I wonder if tonight’s outing makes Gaudin’s FIP better than Mitre’s? (It was a third of a run worse coming into today IIRC)

    • Tom Zig

      what does IIRC mean?

      • JGS

        if I recall correctly

        • Tom Zig

          ahhh ok…thanks

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

    Man, if Franky Cervs had more experience catching our pitchers he’d be the backup come next week.

  • Dela G

    aight pena, swing now

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Don’t make the kid bunt. He just hit his first career homer. Let him swing away.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Agreed.

      Side-note: If I were Jeter, managing the final game, I’d sac bunt like every inning. Sac bunt at the drop of hat. Just to make a point to Girardi not to bunt during the postseason.

      • Tom Zig

        We’d break the record for most sac bunts in a game. Just another meaningless but fun record that we would break this year.

      • Salty Buggah

        Nah, Jeter would bunt because he actually likes it.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          I agree.

          Wait, you said “bunt”? Nevermind, I thought you said something else.

  • JGS

    and that’s why you don’t bunt

  • Tom Zig

    Damn Cervelli looks intense when running around

  • Salty Buggah

    I think the world was 2 feet away from ending. Pena and Cervelli HR in the same day?

    Nice job by them there though.

    Cervelli should be on the postseason roster. He has thoroughly out played Molina this year and can provide far more off the bench than Molina in the postseason with his speed alone…too bad it wont happen.

    • Dela G

      i completely agree

      molina would give his left nut to hit and run like cervelli

      • Don

        Think about it…late/extra inning game, Posada on 2B, 2 outs, no position players left, would you rather have Molina or Cervelli on your bench?

      I’m on board with this idea.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

      Eh, what’s more important, having a guy who’s caught 50 games and all of our pitchers, or having a catcher that is fast and can hit better? Mind you Molina most likely won’t have an AB in the playoffs.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

      Wait, did Boston have to win and Texas lose or just the latter?

      • Dela G

        boston’s magic number was 2 i believe

        so they would have to win and texas lose

        but now texas is one loss away from being out of it

      • Tom Zig

        Boston win + Texas loss = WC Clinch

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

          Yeah, and one or the other will clinch at least a tie of the WC for Boston.

    • Dela G

      hahaha prolly

    • scooter

      7-0 Angels in the 3rd…. could the Rangers suck any more than this?

    • MikeD

      So will the Red Sox “go crazy” and have a champagne celebration when they clinch a tie, because that’s “what this team does.”?

      I love how they were planning to have a party at Yankee Stadium for finishing second, and then got swept.

    If they were the Yanks, ESPN would have “Yanks go down to the Jays in effort to clinch,” as one of the items on their homepage. Either that or, “No champagne popping for Yankees, Bluejays pop Yanks”

  • Dela G

    oh god

    is this lead mitre-proof?

      I’m assuming Mitre is warming

      yes, it is. I would rather see IPK though

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

        I’d guess that IPK is shut down for the year.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

    So now that the season is basically over, what do you think the biggest series of the year was? We always talk about what’s a big game or big series and what not, but now we can look back and say with some certainty.

    For me, has to be the 4-game sweep of Boston. They had a small lead in the division, but blew it right open and made a statement that series.

    • danny

      +1

    • MikeD

      That would be my pick, too.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

      Series? hard to say. Game? Al comes back and goes deep. That was by far my favorite moment and I think it may be what tipped the scales in our direction.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

        Also, that was the first time this year I literally jumped out of my chair.

    • JGS

      Definitely that one. The series win in Anaheim was pretty big too

    • Dela G

      i know this sounds crazy, but the series in atlanta was the biggest series of the year in my book. The yanks were faltering, no one was hitting, and then the cashman shows up. All of a sudden they are a hitting machine and after losing that FLA series, they never looked back.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

        good one.

    • chriskeo

      I have to agree with that, but i think the series in boston after that was my #2 because it all but eliminated any hope of a Boston takeover of the AL east, and #3 was the series in Atlanta.

      • scooter

        The game that sticks out was the 15-inning Friday night win – the ARod walkoff HR… after the Drew spearing of the Hinske line drive the inning before.

      Biggest series of the year will be the Rays series this weekend.

      Three straight playoff previews. Means everything. All the marbles.

      • Tom Zig

        have we been eliminated from the 2010 playoffs yet?

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          Let’s not discuss it. You’d rather not know.

    • Jersey

      Has to be the Boston series. That was where the competition with Boston tilted back in our favor, definitively and irrevocably.

      • Jersey

        …although, I’m also tempted to say the NEXT Boston series, in which we walked into Fenway and took 2 of 3, including that 20-run game. To do that against a team as dominant at home as the Sox is huge in my book.

    • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      Agreed. You could even look back a few days before the start of that series, though, and call that week the most important “stretch” of the season. Entering play on August 4, with the Yanks starting a 2-game set in Toronto against Roy Halladay and the Sox starting a 2-game set in St. Pete, the Yanks were 0.5 games ahead of Boston. The Yanks beat Halladay and swept the short series in Toronto while Boston got swept in their short series against the Rays, then came home and took 4 straight from the Sox. That stretch of 6 games has to have been the most important stretch of games this year for both the Yanks and Sox, as far as the AL East was concerned.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      This one’s for TSJC:

      Pencil him in as the 2010 fifth starter so Phil Hughes can start the season a bit late in AAA before taking over the 5th starter spot a month or two in, pushing Gaudin to the reliever/spot-starter role.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/melky-cabrera-317x400.jpg Drew

        Philly should be good for about 180+ innings. I don’t think we need to start him in AAA.

          Yeah, I hear you, and I know what the Verducci Correlation says about it, but the kid is still coming off a relatively (for a starter) light workload, out of the bullpen, in 2009. I wouldn’t mind seeing them give him a little more time in the beginning of the season to (1) work his way back into the starter’s role and routine and (2) keep his innings down without possibly having to either slow him or shut him down down later in the season.
