What Will Aaron Say ?


 In post game press conferences,  Boone is always asked, " how is it that the Yankees do so well in tight games?"

He always talks about the team's confidence.

Today we lost a game by one run ( and voided a multi-pitcher based no hitter )

What will he say about "confidence?" 

In Chappy, for example?

Or in our ability to achieve this year's dream;  the Wild Card Play-In Game?

Who is going to tell Joel Sherman that we just lost to the Orioles?

I left WFAN on the computer for a while after Saturday's game as I did some online editing and other work.

I heard, with respect to the Yankees and some of our favourite players:

“That’s just dumb”!

With respect to Joey:

“His numbers don’t make sense”

“He leads baseball with strikeouts”

“The idea of baseball is to HIT the ball”

And from “David from Maryland to represent all of the bad teams”:

“Ya gotta lay off Chapman!”

Response: “Seriously?”

I rather favour the concept of HITTING the ball.

Is Anonymous Bosch affecting the Brit spellings and locutions? If he's editing materials for the US, he'd better wise up.

I write for a living, and when in English it is for UK publishers. Accordingly, my spell-check programme is set for British English. I tend to write offline before posting, except on the odd occasion spontaneity is necessary, such as “Fuck You, Joey (or insert any number of names)”!

I apologise if this offends you.

Can we please limit comments on this blessed website to baseball and beer, and other life-sustaining matters?

Sorry--it all sounds like an affectation to me. "Blessed"? Oof!"When in English"--let's see: is your nom de plume Marcel Proust?

Let's not allow this wretched team to cause us to turn on each other. Repeat after me for the 199th time "We're all in this together".

Anonymous Bosch said...

Thank you, Ross. Together!

All I can see is that the Red Sox, the Rays, the Blue Jays, and the Orioles all won yesterday.

The Yankees lost.

And someone finds the time to question … what? My nationality? My ethnicity? My language? My profession?

I will not pursue this one-sided pissing contest.

I am more concerned that no one in the Yankee administration/management can realise that Chapman simply cannot be trusted, especially in critical moments.

If, on the odd chance, Kulber doesn’t clobber in about 15 hours, we are toast! Beyond toast! Burnt crumbs!

I wager some commentators may find other websites of greater interest than what - if anything - can be done to save this once-glorious team from the dustbins of statistical history.

Anal anon just can't quit us here.

Even though we wish she would.

I don’t know why any of us spend an ounce of energy on this team when we all know full well how this season ends.

The offense will shit the bed in a do-or-die game per usual and we will be sent home. Sure we could see a bullpen collapse, but only because the offense will falter first.

2020: Yanks score just 1 run in G5 of the ALDS, get sent home
2019: Yanks score just 14 runs in G2-G6 of ALCS (2.8 R/G), get sent home
2018: Yanks score just 1 run in G3 and 3 runs in G4 of ALDS, get sent home
2017: Yanks score just 1 run in G6 and 0 runs in G7 of ALCS, get sent home

Anti-vaxxer scum being Dufus Firefly, for the uninitiated.

Anonymous Bosch, the "anon" who was and will continue to bust your balls is the resident sociopath. He fancies himself to be an expert on baseball, grammar, sociology, physiology, history philosophy, psychology, and deviant behaviour. He is none of these. He IS a study in abnormal behavior and thought patterns. When he is on his Thorazine, he's merely a distillation of what passes for American Snowflake certitude.

Kev, should I post the proof that you're a fraud AGAIN? You never back up your demented assertions with facts. I always do. Including the proof of your fraudulemce and dishonesty.

Platoni--and what an embarrassing fucking affectation that is--you are just pouting in jealousy. Very petty.

Kevin--you clearly are a glutton for punishment.

PROOF THAT KEVIN IS A LIAR AND A FRAUD

Joey Gallo currently has a 3.5 WAR for the season which is pretty damned good. I for one hope that we keep him next year, and just SEE. He is a player that the old stats (not denigrating "old stats" because when you know what to look for....) won't, at first glance appreciate.

IMHO, the two positional players who must be moved are Sanchez and Torres, especially Torres. We should get some decent value for him due to his potential (there are always "miracle workers who believe, or can bring him around), but especially because he's cheap. Torres is not a SS, and we have a better second baseman already. It will amaze some (all) of you that the analytics have Odor has an above average second baseman. Obviously DJ will be at second for a few more years, barring injury.

Kevin, you pathetic bullshit artist. Odor has a 2021 defensive WAR of ZERO. His 2020 defensive WAR was MINUS 0.4. You just make shit up to promote your personal faves. You're a fraud and a liar and a moron.

Oh--and Joey Gallo has a ZERO WAR as a Yankee.

Case closed.
