Yankees Win

Congratulations go out to the Yankees and the entire Yankee Organization!

I am so proud that the New York Yankees clinched the division today and did it against the Boston Red Sox.

Today’s game was shown on ESPN and I really hate watching their broadcast simply because I can’t stand to listen to Joe “Mr. know it all” Morgan talk as if he is one of the best, if not the best baseball player that has ever lived.

There was a play in the game, where Nick Swisher tried to tag up on a fly ball to center field.  Swish was called out, because the Red Sox appealed that he left second base too early. Even though he was called out, the replay showed that he did not leave early, and his foot was still on the bag when the ball was caught. Morgan went on and on about how he saw from all the way up in the booth (which is probably 150 yards up) that he saw Swisher’s foot leave the bag early. Clearly from the replay it showed that he didn’t but Morgan, Mr. Know it all said he did and the fact that the 2nd base umpire called him out made Morgan gloat even more about how he called it right. It was a bad call and I’m sure once the umpire looks at the replay, he would say that he called it wrong also. But not Joe Morgan..

Another thing that pissed me off was after the game, ESPN showed Baseball Tonight. I’ll just mention John Kruk in this rant but the other cast of so-called “Expert Analysts” had their say about the Yankees also.
ESPN had a reporter in the Yankees’ locker-room. I forget who the reporter was interviewing but in the background were some of the Yankee bench players celebrating. Not in this particular clip were some of the regulars. John Kruk used this opportunity to say that the veteran players won’t be celebrating and that they are more subdued about winning the division. What Kruk? Why wouldn’t they be celebrating? They just won the division after you and some of the other “Expert Analyst” on ESPN said in the beginning of the season that the Yankees wouldn’t even make the playoffs!

So Kruk as you can see the regulars also celebrated. Even the New York Yankee Captain got in on the celebrating.
I wish these former has-been players and general managers on ESPN will stop acting like they no so much. Just because you were a so-so player or as you keep letting people know, drafted David Wright, doesn’t make you an expert instantly when you put on a suit and tie and get a job with ESPN.

With the Yankees surging, they have definitely put themselves in a good position. They are in range of the wildcard race which involves the Cleveland Indians and the Seattle Mariners. Also the Boston Red Sox are hearing footsteps as well.

I know it’s still kinda early but with Cleveland hosting the Red Sox, who should Yankee fans root for?

June 1st Yankees vs. Sox – Game 1

Well, the bats woke up for the Yankees. I don’t know if it was because Wakefield had a bad outting or if it’s just that the Yanks own him. I really think its the latter.. I know for myself, I love it when the Yankees face Wakefield because they tend to tee off on him after the first time the face him in the lineup. Their 8 of 9 against him dating back a few years ago.

But I’m not going to give the Yanks all the credit. Wakefield just didn’t have his stuff. It seems that when there are base runners on first, Wakefield pays too much attention to the runner instead of focusing on the batter. A home run here, a walk there.. He gave up 8 runs in 3 innings!

As for the Yankees ace, Wang had his ups and downs but stayed come and held the Sox to 3 runs. I like Wang, he keeps his cool. doesn’t show any emotion on the mound that would let the other team know he’s struggling.

I may be wrong but I’m going to predict a sweep of the Sox this weekend. With all that happened in last nights game, the bean balls, the emotion finally showed by Torre, this is the type that can fire them up.. But wait, Mussina is pitching tonight. Can I take back my prediction?!
