You Knew This All Along, Didn't You?

You knew that, " the wheels were going to come off the bus."

You knew that more injuries were coming, and that they would strike in a concentrated fashion upon areas of known weakness.

You knew that some injuries would linger for the entire season.

You knew that injuries would be used as decoy strategies, to sit down respected old guys who were no longer producing.

You knew that the home run derby would destroy Aaron Judge.

You knew that Castro would come back too early.

You knew that we would waste top prospects on garbage.

You knew that Joe would sit players down who got hot.

You knew that some old guy, with an expensive contract , would always get playing preference to a multi-talented young, unproven, rookie.

You knew that Boston would do it right and we would do it wrong.

You knew that we would, " throw good money after bad,"
at the trade deadline.

You knew that Girardi does not understand the principle of moving runners into scoring position with sacrifice bunts.

You knew that the Yankees never practice bunting.

You knew that Cashman could not stick to a "re-building" strategy, despite a world of evidence that it is needed and it works.

You knew that we would sink into the toilet.

You knew that nothing changes under this Yankee regime.

You knew that.

You know that more bad news is coming.

I don't agree that Not Bunting is bad. It's arguable.

However, your list -- with that one exception -- makes me sick to my stomach.

AND: It's a familiar feeling.

BETTER GET READY TO BUNT TONIGHT, MOTHERFUCKERS!

BECAUSE THIS GUY IS PITCHING IN PRIME TIME.

LAST GAME HE PITCHED, I NOTICED HE WAS THROWING 98 MPH, WITH THAT VICIOUS SLIDER TOO.

HE STRUCK OUT 12, I BELIEVE.

I BET HEADLEY IS GONNA PLAY. (MISTAKE, IT SHOULD BE COOPER).

I BET ROMINE IS GONNA PLAY. (MONTGOMERY IS PITCHING).

TODD FRAZIER IS GONNA PLAY. (.213)

HOW THE FUCK ARE WE GOING TO ECLIPSE THIS GUY TONIGHT?

SHIT.

Why does ESPN (the st. botolph's town fan boy TV station) have to have this nitwit token woman on the BROADcast? She is HORRIBLE. I know she was a very good softball player. But she just said last year PUDGE Rodriguez left the Yankees. PUDGE?!?

WTFFFFFFFF?

God I hate ESPN. Late fucking nights and horrible announcing. Gimme the 1 pm Sunday starts please (never gonna happen in my lifetime).

Montgomery just let in a run. Against Sale, it might as well be 10-0 Boston.

Who said to dump Hicks?

(OK, I was one of them. But I take it back now.)

Pocono Steve said...

Thanks a lot, Aroldis!

Nickname Damur said...

Yup.

$85 FUCKING MILLION DOLLARS, AND HE CAN'T EVER SEEM TO GET 3 OUTS WITHOUT GIVING UP A RUN OR RUNS.

THE PINEAPPLE LOSS WAS RIGID AND STIFF.

METS TOMORROW, AND I'M GOING.

I MAY GET INTO A FIGHT.

MET FANS INSIDE YANKEE STADIUM DOES SOMETHING TO MY BRAIN.

THIS SERIES WILL MAKE ME CRAZIER THAN THIS BOSTON SERIES (WHICH MADE ME CRAZY).

Chapo another horrible Cashman legacy.

Rufus T. Firefly--welcome to the horde of coarse sexist baiters of Jessica Mendoza. You play gotcha if she misspeaks on one point of fact, but ignore the brilliance of her overall insights and commentary, which far surpass those of the deadhead Aaron Boone. You hear similarly crude bigotry on sports-talk radio, deploring Mendoza's lack of major league playing experience. Yet somehow we never hear this about Tom Verducci, who looks as though he never stepped on any sort of baseball diamond once he retried from elementary-school intramural ball. Go deal with your personal issues off-line, guy. This is a baseball forum, not group-therapy session for men with small penises.

Brilliance? I don't think so. More like buffoonery.

Vertucci is also not worth listening to.

Boone I can take.

Hey, Firefly--is that the name or the size of your dick? Get the cotton out of your ears. You're as bigoted against women as those Charlottesville guys are against African Americans and Jews. Here are some reactions from professionals, who know what they're talking about and don't filter their comments through their sexual insecurities and primitive prejudices:
