ALDS Game Three Spillover Thread IV

By

Do your thing, A-Rod. I’m not greedy, a double will do just fine.

  • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

    meh, Mo should be fine. want robi to get anoth hack, though

    Hungry Heart!!!

    • chris

      I wonder why no closer for the Twins.

  • dkidd

    dagger time

  • MikeD

    We’re burning through new threads at a faster rate.

    I say again: This team is the balls. Everyone who is nervous that Girardi is overmanaging, or Joba/Coke/Marte can’t be trusted, you’re overreacting.

    Our manager is smart, our players are good, we outlast the opponent and win ballgames. We will not be stopped.

      Nah son, Girardi teh idiot. He can’t be as right as me.

    • Jackson

      Amen

  • Salty Buggah

    IBB him. Just do it.

  • AJ

    A-Rod is so money he asked Girardi what he wanted/how he wanted it done and it’ll end up that way.

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

      Burns: You there, Strawberry! Go hit a homer.
      Strawberry: Sure thing, skip!
      (crushes mammoth home run)
      Burns: See there? I told him to do that.

    • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

      GMS apologized to Alex before this series for slandering him, so Alex decieded to set aside his differences and win some ballgames

  • lily-bk

    i just dont want mo doing what he did in game 4 of the alcs

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

      You gotta be freaking kidding me.

      You have a paranoia problem. See a therapist.

      • ansky

        you are no longer allowed to post. Do not doubt the Great Rivera!

      • Jackson

        Seriously, he’s the greatest closer ever and is still great, who focuses on the very, very rare occassions when he fails? It’s a lot more fun to think about how easily Mo is going to sit the Twins down in the 9th.

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

          More accurate too.

          The way some Yankee fans have turned into nervous, negative, whiny, self-flagellating bitches (like old Red Sox fans) sickens me.

          We RUN THIS SHIT.

    • AJ

      Open your mouth and insert your foot? Are you Papelbum in secret?

    • Swisha Claus

      Are you familiar with the rest of his postseason body of work? OR just the very last inning of ’01?

    • mustang

      are you serious ?

    • Steve H

      0.75 career postseason ERA.

      /Reality’d

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

    Where have we’ve seen this before? teix on first. A-Rod up, 9th inning…

  • mustang

    no nathan WOW

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      The Twins season is in jeopardy but hey no need to put your best reliever out there with the best Yankee hitters coming up so you can still be in the game.

      And Girardi sucks?

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

        Manager of the Year.

      • Tom Swift

        Is it worse for Nathan’s confidence to not make an appearance in the 9th with the season on the line, or for him to come in and get shellacked?

      • mustang

        The man share the reliever award with Mo.

        NO WORDS!!!

    • Jersey

      Apparently October innings count for more than anything else, so by that logic, so Mahay is actually one of the best relievers ever.

  • dkidd

    wow

    good take, alex

  • JGS

    Josh Beckett’s ERA in the 08 and 09 playoffs–7.71

    • JGS

      CC Sabathia’s in 07 and 08 playoffs—8.70

      yay for Beckett being the premier postseason pitcher of our generation

    • ansky

      Why are you still talking about the Red Sux…their season is OVER.

      • JGS

        point taken. I’m still not sure how I feel about that, because I think the Angels have a much better chance of actually taking down the Yankees

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

          This is true, in the same way that a rat has a slightly better chance than a mouse of taking down the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

          • JGS

            amen, but I at least wanted it to go 5

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

        That.

        Boston’s deal with the devil has expired. The Pats, Red Sox, and Celtics are all entering their nuclear winters. The declines have noticeably begun.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

          Holy shit that’s right. Pat’s aren’t hot, Red Sox got owned with their best rotation and the stars of the Celtics are getting old.

          I hate the Celtics with a passion as well. Oh well, LeBron go fucking murder them.

  • ansky

    Jon Rauch’s neck tatoo is NOT Gansta!

    • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

      I’m not telling him!

      • slappy white

        no shit , hes a giant, very scary in HD

      She was great in Batman and Robin movie.

  • cjc

    oh shut it chip it was inside and up

    • MikeD

      Exactly.

  • MikeD

    He took a peek back because the umpire calls have been suck ass.

  • Salty Buggah

    Not an IBB, but a BB nonetheless

  • Eirias

    Way to pass the buck, A-Rod…

  • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

    Number of non-white persons in the stands today in Boston and Minneapolis combined: zero.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      haha I thought the same exact thing while watching the sox game.

    • MikeD

      I’m white, but if I lived in Minnesota I’d be considered non-white. That’s the whitest state in the country! I think Scandanvians count as double white. They reflect all light.

      • ShuutoHeat

        There’s a higher shade on the white spectrum and it’s called “casper-esque”. I think the crowd is pretty casper-esque.

      • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

        So the politically correct term for trailor-park trash is “Scandinavians”?

    • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

      Have the honor to give mats a fb

      he beat me to it

    • Nels

      I went to Fenway in September and honestly, every single person I saw there was white.

  • Mister Delaware

    Bring in a pinch hitter. Matsui sucked against LHP in 2008!

  • Tom Zig

    Jon Rauch’s eyes are sooo far apart from each other. What a weird looking dude

    • Jackson

      He’s a hammerhead

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      I’m telling you, man, he was in Deliverance. I mean really, a 7-foot tall guy from the backwoods of Kentucky?

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

    Jon Rauch is a FA after the season, right? He’ll be in Boston next year. Book it. He’s already got the pathetic facial hair and douchebaggy neck tattoo. He fits that team like a glove.

    They’ll sign him as soon as they grant an outright release to Joey Gathright and get rid of the “complexion problem” they had to deal with for their playoff run.

    • Tom Zig

      ietc

    • ROBTEN

      John Rauch is the kind of under the radar pick-up that sets Theo Epstein apart from other GMs. A tall, white flamethrower, he will complete a Boston team that fell just short of a WS ring in 09. Boston just went from a strong bullpen to an exceptional one and further distanced themselves from the rest of the AL East.

      For Diamond Cutters, I’m Peter Gammons.

  • JSquared

    is he icing mo?

  • AJ

    I love Mijares. Not only is he a fat slob, but the Yankees love to tee off on this guy.

  • Swisha Claus

    Has Gardenhire actually looked at HazMat’s splits??

    • AJ

      Gardy is just about ready to take a nap. Their baserunning has helped to put them in this situation.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

    Now this would be what you call over managing.

  • chris

    Come on Matsui, end this.

  • Steve H

    Jon Rauch=Brackman?

    • Mister Delaware

      That seems pretty ideal right about now.

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

        WHY THE FUCK IS MY BURRITO TAKING THIS LONG TO COOK IN THIS MICROWAVE?!??!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Because they’re both a million feet tall and white? Brackman should have a MUCH higher ceiling and he doesn’t look like an Area-51 experiment.

      • Steve H

        Rauch was, once upon a time, a big time prospect as well.

  • chris

    Why isn’t gardner pinch running?

    • Yanks21

      He should for Matsui…

      • Mike bk

        no he should be a defensive replacement for damon.

    • Mike bk

      for whom? tex, not taking his glove out…a-rod, u want hairston at 3rd in the 9th…? matsui would be a waste to run for

    • Yanks21

      Plus, you dont want to take our best fielder (Tex) and next best (arod) off the field for the bottom of the ninth.

  • Jackson

    HAHAHA, how sad did that lady look. I love it.

  • alittleblackegg

    Do the announcers still thing the story of the night is Pavano? Amazing.

    • crapulent aka I said good day sir

      Yes he didn’t break his collarbone putting on his hat. That’s a story.

    • MikeD

      Pavano? Did he pitch tonight?

  • cjc

    thanks for the freebies guys

  • ansky

    Those 3 chicks should’ve spelled Tit that would’ve been cooler….i Love how Twins fans are still in the game…NOT!!!

    • slappy white

      thats how they spell tit there…..its minnesota

  • dkidd

    great at-bat by matsui

  • Swisha Claus

    Now they bring in Nathan. That’s rediculous.

  • Mike bk

    only took to the 4th pitcher with the season on the line for the twins to put in nathan.

  • Tom Zig

    When did Tony LaRussa start managing the twins?

  • Yanks21

    Gardenhhire is pissed but those are balls…

    I am not being biased.

    • Pasqua

      I was thinking the same thing. For a pretty decent-seeming dude, he sure likes to bitch a lot.

  • Pasqua

    Naaaaaaaa-than!

    Naaaaaaaa-than!

    Everybody!

  • ansky

    How great is it that no one in the pen wants to pitch to the Yanks???? and now he’s brining in Nathan…thats just cruel Gardy!

  • Salty Buggah

    I love our ability to walk it out (Unk’d)

  • mustang

    wow its joe nathan that guy that use to close..

  • AJ

    Hey Joe, you remember what happened the other night at Yankees Stadium? It’ll be even better this time because your home fans will boo you.

    And here we go.

    Caray could not have been more boring and sad and stupid and biased during that AB.

    • Mike bk

      just that one?

  • Jackson

    Remember when everyone was complaining about Girardi’s bullpen management? Look at how Gardenhire completely butchered this inning and enjoying an example of real bad managing.

    • Mike bk

      no that is lack of confidence in the man who is supposed to be ur closer.

      • Jackson

        Which I think is a pretty good example of bad managing. Although Nathan is proving him to be correct right now.

  • Salty Buggah

    Chip Caray might need to ask Gammons about that noose

  • ansky

    Chip called that single like he was calling a number at a bingo hall…wtf?

    i feel bad having to do this to nathan. i actually like that guy.

    • AJ

      I like Nathan as well, but whenever he’s up against the Yankees, he’s an enemy. Whatever happens makes me happy.

  • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

    Yeah, I final “fisted” call by Caray.

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    haha. We are so much better than the Twins. I bet the O’s could win in the AL Central.

  • crapulent aka I said good day sir

    Why not Gritner at 3rd?

    • Mike bk

      because he has to play the of in the 9th…hairston is in for the dh.

  • AJ

    Two great things about that at-bat:

    1. Robbie got a hit with RISP
    2. Jason Kubel’s dive.

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

    Nice job pinch running for Matsui when he’s already on third, Joe.

    ::facepalm::

    • Mike bk

      wouldnt have made a difference to this point.

      • Mike Pop

        Like a slap in the face to Hairston.

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

        Just the principle of it.

        • Mike bk

          i agree with the principle of it…just glad he didnt use gardy cause gardy better take over for damon in the of.

      • Yanks21

        it would have a made a difference… a 4 run lead instead of 3

        Gardner should have been in there!!!

    Why isn’t Swish bunting?

  • Karen

    Swisher is chewing gum? I’m not sure he can hit and chew at the same time.

  • mustang

    anyone know Nathan’s era this series?

    • Jersey

      13.50. Tonight’s runs were charged to other guys.

      • mustang

        • Jersey

          Down to nine now after those two strikeouts. Feels like it should be higher, right?

    • Swisha Claus

      27?

  • ansky

      • Sam P.

        You mean Scott Proctor made an appearance somehow?!?

    • ShuutoHeat

  • AJ

    Swish should have sat there and turned into that ball like Mike Napoli does every freaking game.

  • ansky

    So appropriate for a team that plays in “the baggie”. Time to take out the trash. On a side note…Is Chip Caray dead?

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      “Is Chip Caray dead?”

      No, he is looking for a bathroom stall to say: “He fists it through the hole”.

  • Karen

    Swisher gets the hat trick.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Our corner OF’s need to get it together for the ALCS.

  • danny

    lol twins fans are funny

  • Salty Buggah

    Hurry up and get Mo back in to turn the lights out on the Twins season…and the Metrodome’s life.

  • Jersey

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

    I still don’t believe how much they like sucking Pavano’s dick.

  • Eirias

    I wonder… can we break Nathan like Pujols broke Lidge?

    • Mike bk

      lidge came back and was pretty good last year as i remember considering he didnt blow a game and won the series…he sucked this year but that was not pujols.

      • whozat

        I’m pretty sure that the Pujols thing didn’t happen in 2007…

        • Mike bk

          just furthering the point that pujols didnt break him.

      • AJ

        Mike, good point. But for a few years after that mammoth home run (which hasn’t landed yet), Lidge was extremely off. Remember that he was ineffective before going to Philadelphia and pitched well last year in a contract year, which is a trend in every sport.

        I think the Yankees can do that to any pitcher, not just Joe Nathan. The way the team makes pitchers work and draw out at bats is incredible. They do the little things to frustrate a pitcher.

    • Pasqua

      I think we’re almost there. He’s not a happy camper.

    • JGS

      I would rather not

      Yankees own the Twins, and Nathan is a big part of getting them to the playoffs every year. assuming the WC is from the east, and the Yanks have the best record, they will play the central champ

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    C’mon Melk, clear the bases.

  • Mike bk

    now there was the blantant use of veteran as code for OLD

  • AJ

    Oh no, Mo has been sitting for a while. He might be cold in the climate-controlled dome.

    I hate you TNT announcers. There is no hope left – the Yankees are moving on. Deal with it.

    • Mike bk

      u must really hate them on TBS then.

    • Pasqua

      That was not biased announcing. That was “Please don’t change the channel!” pandering to the audience.

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

    A Melky Cabrera SUCKMYNUTS!!!!!.

    I think at one point Nathan was talking to the ball and his glove, asking them for help. Methinks he’s going nuts from the Yankees torment.

    • Pasqua

      After Cano’s bloop, Nathan could be heard to exclaim to the glove, “Fuck you, Joboo. I’ll do it myself.”

    And, here comes the final half inning in Metrodome history.

    “No one gave them a shot over the last 3 weeks of the regular season.”

    AKA: This team sucked for 5 and a half months.

  • Tom Zig

    Come on Mo, step on their throats!

  • ansky

    If a Twins hitter gets on, Chip cums all over the booth…guaranteed.

    • Mike Pop

      A SHOT UP THE MIDDLE!

    • Pasqua

      Putting Ron Darling in a very awkward situation.

  • crapulent aka I said good day sir

    Twins…ballpark sucks. Owners pocket the money and don’t give a damn about the team or the fans. Play poor little David to our mighty Goliath. wha wha wha…

    Story of grit and glory? Keep telling yourself that fools.

  • Vinny

    Maybe they want to make the last game played at the Metrodome as palatable to watch as they can, for Twins fans. That must be it. Tell me that must be it.

  • Voice of Reason

    How do these announcers have a job? They needed to remind everyone that Pavano retired the first 8… When Pettitte retired more? I have never, ever, heard more favoritism called in a game in my entire life.

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

      I have never, ever, heard more favoritism called in a game in my entire life.

      Well, you’re young yet.

    • Mike bk

      then u never listened to his daddy and don sutton call a braves game.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      They’re tied with Fox on Red Sox-Yankee games

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      I like Ron Darling.

      Why does he have a job? He speaks well and was a great pitcher.

      Chip Caray is a douche.

      Why does he have a job? His Daddy and Grand Daddy were good at what they did. Chip, personally, can’t hold a job for more than 3 years.

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

    The more I see that Blackberry commercial, the more convinced I become that that girl is a desperate for work Charli Baltimore.

    It’s uncanny.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    People with Blackberrys must be really hip.

  • Salty Buggah

    Swish and Melky and anyone else who struggled will get it on next series. They are kinda streaky.

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

    Caray: Well, let’s see what tricks Gardenhire has left up his sleeve for the Yankees… Wait a minute, is that… yes, it’s BRETT FAVRE! BRETT FAVRE IS COMING TO PINCH HIT FOR THE TWINS AND SAVE THEIR SEASON!!!! OH MY GOD, RON, IT’S BRETT FAVRE!!!!!

    • crapulent aka I said good day sir

      and Roger Clemens.

    • Ivan

      Hahaha

    • Pasqua

      Now I’m picturing him in a Twins uni, but still wearing a Vikings helmet.

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

        With a Packers-yellow undershirt. (Like he wore all last year with the Jets.)

  • Vinny

    And we thought we were done with the fisting.

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

      Once you start fisting, it’s hard to stop. Nothing is ever the same.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Why is Caray so excited now?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      Because it’s a start!!!

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      You know it’s the fisting. Don’t even act like you didn’t know.

  • crapulent aka I said good day sir

    Mo loves to make it interesting.

    • ROBTEN

      Mo is merciful. He just wants to give Twins fans a few more minutes in their crappy, decrepit, run-down, “baggy” disgrace that they call a stadium.

  • Alex S

    fisted…..

    • Pasqua

      One for the road.

  • Ivan

    Chip don’t get too excited please.

  • Mike bk

    chip just got wood.

  • Rey22

    There’s fisting all over the place

  • Nels

    Fist.

  • Marcus

    I can’t wait to hear Caray call this double play.

    • JGS

      nah–hard to get double plays on weak broken bat grounders

  • Jersey

    The dreaded bloop

    Michael Cuddyer once struck me out 3 times in a Legion game. I’ll consider him getting crushed by the Yankees payback for that.

      All: YEAH, LET’S KILL THIS FUCKER!!!!

  • Salty Buggah

    Cmon Mo, hurry this up. My laptop battery is bout to die and my adapter stopped working this morning.

  • C

    Where’d that miss ump?

  • Mike Pop

    It’s a start!

  • danny

    mo getting squeezed?

    • Mike bk

      not according to pitch trax.

  • AJ

    The ump needs to stop squeezing Mo. That’s two in the inning that should have been strike calls.

    • AJ

      And the makeup call makes everything ok.

      If that guy comes anywhere near one of the Yankees, he needs to be taken out with a sniper.

  • Ivan

    That Mo is a cold hearted bastard. Let em feel like they comming back and then BAM, crush there hopes.

  • Salty Buggah

    2 mo Mo

  • Jersey

    One.

  • JSquared

    Kubel… my favortie Twin…

  • Brazilian Yankee

    What happened?

    • JGS

      guy ran on the field

  • Pasqua

    The crowd just fisted one of it’s own into centerfield!

    • danny

      BAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    The guy who ran on the field might be better than Punto.

  • danny

    LMAO wth?

  • Jackson

    That fan was about to get in Melky’s mix.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

    LMFAO stay classy Twin fans. Stay classy.

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    Johnny Damon was ready to go kill the dude that ran on the field.

    Johnny is still the man.

    • Jersey

      You can take the man outta the cave…

  • Mike bk

    they should forfeit right now.

  • AndrewYF

    Did you see how that guy was running? Looked like he was running to the bathroom.

  • ansky

    WAIT WAIT….STOP EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!

    ….the Champagne is not Korbel!

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Nice. That stuff is junk IMO.

  • chris

    way to show that…isn’t that not allowed?

  • Vinny

    The best part about watching the game with the TBS companion, is that I got to see that fan trying to climb over the wall.

    • Mike Pop

      I always miss the best things.

  • Mike Pop

    The Yankees are ridiculous.

  • crapulent aka I said good day sir

    Living in Minnesota will do that to you. Make you crazy.

      IT’S SO DAMN COLD!!!! ICE CREAM WAS A BAD CHOICE!!!!

  • Alex S

    that fan got fisted, i’m shocked tbs showed him usually the networks won’t show the fans running on the field

    • Pasqua

      Definitely an accident.

  • slappy white

    whats the fine for a jackass running on the field

  • Nels

    Post season TV gives a wonderful view of the fan on the field.

    • Nels

      *Postseason.TV

      • Nels

        I guess TBS showed it too.

  • ROBTEN

    Was that Chip Caray on the field?

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Those Minneapolans need to get more sun. That seasonal Affective Disorder is really screwing with their heads.

  • Salty Buggah

    Haha, the last non-player dumbass on the field Metrodome will ever see.

  • whozat

    Wow, TBS showing the idiot who ran on the field…EVERY other network knows enough not to give them that glory.

    • AJ

      This is TBS. Listen to the announcers and you get the idea of their baseball coverage.

  • AJ

    F’ing Twinkies fans trying to ice Mo.

    • Pasqua

      Well, the Twins couldn’t do it, so the fans took it into their own hands.

      Respect.

  • Jackson

    I once saw a fan in Baltimore jump onto the field from the 1st base dugout and successfully scale the left field wall without getting caught. He’s kind of my hero.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Gotta get them red tops.

  • crapulent aka I said good day sir

    Assassinate the Yankees seems to be the only way.

    • Pasqua

      If you can’t beat ‘em, kill ‘em.

      • Ivan

        Oswald Style.

  • crapulent aka I said good day sir

    I was at Yankee Stadium 2 years ago when that asshole jumped into the net behind home base. Could have freaking killed himself. He was banned for life.

    • Tom Swift

      I would go further. The only professional sports he is allowed to watch is soccer.

  • Jersey

    Two.

  • crapulent aka I said good day sir

    What was Arod doing with his arms there.

  • Ivan

    It’s been LONG Time for this one folks.

  • Salty Buggah

    One Mo…then SEASON SWEEP!

  • AJ

    You know what I liked? A-Rod running to the mound to protect Mo. I would have loved to see him pwn that guy.

  • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

    Celebration or just handshakes after the next out?

  • Karen

    Why are the fans so quiet?

  • chris

    BALL GAME OVER!!! AMERICAN LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES OVER!!! YANKEES WIN!! THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN!!!!!

  • NYTraveller

    Yankees sweep, Red Sox blow a 2 run, 2 out, 2 strike lead in the 9th at home to get swept out of the playoffs.

    That sound you hear is the universe beginning to realign along its correct axis. 8 more wins and the shift is complete.

  • JMK aka The Overshare
