Live Blogging the Playoffs
-First things first, my brother Tom just scared the sh*t out of me with the following text message: "Dynasty satrts tomorrow, El Duque will carry us to the promise land".
-Does anyone else love Frank Thomas for absolutely no reason? He homered off of Santana in the second inning and I was excited...but not sure why.
-What is this old timers day? He and Rondell White are the only guys with home runs and multiple hits.
-Zito and Santana are superhumans right now...talk about turning it on for the playoffs. Both still pitching in the 8th.
-I just spent $120 for a Mets ticket. I am really nervous about them losing Thursday. As a matter of fact, I have very little confidence...El Duque is pitching game 1. When you haven't seen one of your teams win a championship since you were 7, these things start to drive you crazy.
-What shirt do I wear to the game? Wright, Reyes, or Division Champs?
-When your team hasn't won the division in this long, you buy the shirt.
I wanted to end things there but The Big Hurt just went deep again. I was wondering why the Twinkies brought in this guy Jesse Crain to pitch to the meat of the A's order. This is the playoffs baby, don't be f'in around in a 5 game series. Oh look, that run is really going to cost them. 3-2 final, way to go idiots.
Buy the Division shirt. Definitely. And wear it every day!
Perhaps if you mentioned the Yankees a little more, even if just to hate on them.
I'll throw in a Yankees comment because there wasn't any the most recent section:
Nice win for the Yanks last night and Derek Jeter just solidified his MVP status (even though the voting is finished).
1 down, 10 to go.
I was @ Game 1 of the Yankee series last night. I ran into a girl I made-out with in highschool. After saying "hi" she said "why are you wearing the Jersey of a Japanese man?".... This was the only part of my evening that wasn't sweet... I see no wrong in Rockin a MATSUI jersey. Even if he didn't do well.
This Yanks team looks different that the previous 4. They are going for the throat this postseason. No more waiting for Sheffield and Jeter to step up.
I predicted a big series for Abreu on Sunday... so far my prediction is decent.
I too like Frank Thomas... but only because I took Jared to a White Sox v. Yanks game back in the day. Jared loves him. Therefore I root for him because I have no reason not too. He is a good baseball story this year.
I also saw "Sabertooth" at the game last night... and, believe it or not, she was looking pretty good.
