That Was 11

I have it on good authority that the 30 runs today were the responsibility of the teams' two new, European travel assistants, the Red Sox' Ian Faith, and the Yankees' Nigel Tufnel.

Apparently, both men carefully agreed on the size the playing field should be, before handing over the measurements to officials at London's Stadium.  The measurements were as follows:

RF Line:  315"
LF Line:  330"
Dead Center:  425"

The officials were also informed that the distances from the pitching rubber to home should be 60' plus 6', and that the space between bases should be 90".

Working carefully with the unfamiliar American measurements, Ian and Nigel agreed to make the foul territory 25 sq. mi.

The leprechaun dancing around the mound between innings was purely the responsibility of Hal Steinbrenner's personal assistant, Jeanine Pettibone.

That was the worst game I have ever watched in my life.

You know what, despite all our rending of clothes and gnashing of teeth, the Yanks have a good record. Even a winning record against teams with winning records. I wish that mattered to me. I don't care about their record. I only care if they win championships.




Fuck you Hal.

I think MLB sent juiced balls, even juicier than the ones here. Unfamiliar people become fans with offense. Action, pure and simple.

Made of rubber, like their footballs?
