Get Ready For Game 3 With Angel Whining


OC Register  Nobody gets that call in major-league baseball. Not that way, never. Especially in the playoffs.  But the Yankees did, at second base in the 10th inning Saturday of ALCS Game 2. Umpire Jerry Layne tried to show everybody how smart he isn’t, and held Angels shortstop Erick Aybar to a standard that few, if any, infielders are asked to while turning a double play.  Darren Oliver bailed out Layne — not Aybar –  when he retired Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira to send the game into the 11th.  Fox analyst Tim McCarver’s assessment of the situation was spot-on. That neighborhood play, area play,  proximity play, whatever you want to call it, has been the way of the baseball world for a long, long time.  It’s supposed to keep middle infielders out of the hospital, give them an edge on the big, strong guys bearing down on them.  That’s a double play in a Kansas City-Baltimore game in front of 12,000 in late August, and it was a double play Saturday night in the rain in New York.  Next thing you know, they’ll start calling traveling in the NBA, and we won’t see nearly as many dunks.  Eleventh-inning update: I  have not seen this many 320-foot home runs since I last managed in Senior League (ages 14-16) baseball. Two-thirds of the New York runs have come on ball that would be routine outs in any other big-league park.  New Yankee Stadium is beautiful and everything, but it plays like Reid Park in Riverside. It’s the same distance for both teams, yes; both so was Coors Field, and everyone complained about that, too. The Yankees should not be exempt.

Hahahahaha, you know you’re in a team’s head when their local writers start to complain about umpires making the correct calls and Yankee stadium playing too small.  Nevermind their team committing a million errors or vlad not hitting anything, it’s all the umpire’s and Yankee Stadium architect’s fault.  Reading this shit is just like porn, I get off to it, just puts a big smile on my face all day long.  So when the Yanks and Angels take the field today at 4 ET I will know that the stadium is full whiney douchy fans with their stuffed animals.  The Angels will play hard today no doubt, they have their best pitcher on the mound, but they have to already feel a little bit beaten.  And if the Yanks hit a couple first row HRs today they won’t be able to blame the ball park.  It’ll be a nice little epiphany for them that the Yanks win because they are better, and not because of stadium dimensions or bad calls.  I’m still sticking to my original Yankees in 6 prediction however, just out of respect to the Angels team, but Angels fans deserve the sweep, fucking whiney infants.

P.S. Umm 2/3rds of our runs have come from 320 foot HRs?  Jeter’s was a blast out in any park…Arod’s was a solo shot and there were no HR’s in game 1…so yeah fucker get your facts straight…surprised you didn’t mention the payroll too since you seem to be running down the excuse list.

    James, your posts about the whiny Angles fans have become whiny themselves. But, I am glad you are standing up for the oppressed Yankee fans. Strong work.
