Where’s My Daddy ?

with 10 comments

I tell  ya, when the media gets their teeth into  something, they just  can’t let go.. In the winter of 2014 / 15 with Alex Rodriguez coming back from his year long suspension, media row’s peanut gallery anticipated, then  created a virtual A-Rod circus staring #13

Of course A-Rod turned the tables on the mean spirited scribes by having an offensive resurgence from April through July, and the assumed low hanging fruit simply died on the vines.

Most recently, the media obsessed over what  the Bombers should do at the trade deadline, the fact Hal Steinbrenner obeyed their orders, and cashed expiring assets in for a chance to upgrade the home team’s gene pool, Hal, CashMan, and the whole organization have received A+ grades, putting Steinbrenner’s worst nightmare, a Bronx Ghost Town, to bed..

For at least two  days prior to last night’s final  Subway  Series Game, the media sunk their fangs into an A-Rod / Bartolo Colon compare.. Thursday Night would be a no  brainer cameo  for the 25th man on the Bomber bench, after all, Rodriguez has owned Colon in his illustrious career

“We all know he always hits well against me,” Colon said. “I say that’s my dad.”

Even  the Al Yankzeera gasbags had A-Rod chiseled into the line-up, but the news he was being replaced by “Sanchie” left Bourbon Bob, Flash in the Pan, and Bryl Creem Curry aghast !!!!

Not inserting A-Rod into a line-up  with Colon on the bump  was an unmitigated Mortal Sin, it became official when Pope Francy denounced it in the late afternoon..

Rob B @RBomm@RNs_Funhouse Did you happen to catch how many HRs A Rod is closing in on? I missed it the first 82 times he said it

I’ll be tapping out pretty quickly if this whole show is going to be about Mike’s boyfriend A-Rod.

A couple of substitute teachers are behind the glass for Mike’s show today. Get those prank calls in early and often!

The detestable act of benching A-Rod was now a talking point for the very combustable Psycho Joe, and as predicted he went off the rails

“Obviously the numbers are tremendous, right?,” Girardi said. “Do you know what he did in 2012? Has anyone really (checked)? No, you didn’t really do (the research). … I do look at matchups, but there are other things that you look at too, and his struggles have come against right-handers.”

During this media grilling Psycho Joe actually barked at the grizzled  scribes telling them

“these questions are unfair”

Yes Joe but…

A-Rod owns a .411/.429/1.000 slash line in 63 plate appearances (combined regular season and postseason) against Colon, with eight homers,

Obviously Psycho Joe wasn’t buying into  the media’s chance to have him hauled out in a straight jacket, which could happen at  any moment in the 2nd half..

No doubt part of Psycho Joe’s mysterious reasoning behind benching Dumpty Rodriguez are his Peripherals, those dreaded metric numbers that every GM has hitched their wagon to in this modern era… Last night the Metric narrative was empowered by lengthy dialogue between David pour me another Cone and Michael I think I’m a Star Kay

Which of course exorcized our Man In The Street

Your Don aint as smart as you guys.
Coney and Kay make my head explode with all that Metric crap.
Stats that are so.miniscule no one effin gives a shit about the #of spins on a pitch.
Small sample this you effin nerds !!!
Throw the Ball
Catch the Ball
Hit the Ball

Yes David Cone  does subscribe to the new  baseball metrics, and yes he uses his well  read knowledge to  embellish his broadcast, and when  the home team is stumbling to  throw catch  and hit, Cone is the perfect  Al Yankzeera point man when it comes to giving you  rational reasons why you’re watching a suck ass product….

Sort of the way  the liberal and corporate Media only force feeds us the cherry picked content they  want you to  digest

Oh so Eovaldi sucked, but the spin on his splitter was above league average… Or a 43 yr old grandfather of 3 just  shut us down for 6.2 innings, but the Velo speed on those hard hit outs show us this offense is ready to increase it’s team BABIP after the 6th inning in Home Night Games, 3 days previous to  a day game……….

The bottom line is, the way #Fatolo  43 was running these guys  in Pinstripes back to the dugout with their tails firmly stuck where the sun don’t shine, Kay and Cone probably  had orders from Al Yankzeera to change the subject, make their heads spin so they don’t realize what  we’re trying to  sell  them is yesterday’s bagel

What Cone, who also parties on the old school side of the fence probably wanted to  say

it is good to keep it simple
do you remember Hank Aaron’s reply to Yogi when Yogi told Hank he was going to break his bat because he had the trademark facing the wrong way?
” Yogi, I’m up here to hit, not to read.”

Anyway  the Yanks put up  another lethargic offensive display, it was deja vu all over, Colon baffled them with ease, 6.2 innings, 6 hits, 1 run..

Blevins, Reed and Familia for 2.2 innings put a bow on it, with Familia getting into his customary hot water in the 9th

A-Rod’s replacement “Sanchie” picked up  2 hits, one a ringing double, the 2nd Sanchez knock showed some quickness beating out an infield hit

Tonight A-Rod’s replacement will be behind the plate  catching, so McCann will no  doubt replace the 25th man on the roster at his former DH spot

The Yanks only run came in the 7th on a Sanchez double, and a Hicks RBI single, so with no position  to play, and the DH spot representing thanks to young blood Sanchez, I’m not sure benching A-Rod impacted the final  score.. Sorry Media hounds, there’s not much meat on that bone fellas..

Eovaldi was decent, he had one bad inning, but that’s all  you need when  you have One Bad Offense

“We had some missed opportunities a couple of different times and then you look at the extra out we gave them,” Girardi said. “Maybe Bruce hits a home run the next inning and we lose, 2-1, but we had some opportunities.”

As for the Baby Bomber watch, Refsynder went hitless, he made a nice defensive play  at 1st base, but couldn’t get his offensive game untracked

Only good defensive placement kept him from roping a 1 out double in the bottom of the 9th.. Ref stroked a hard hit grounder near the 3rd base bag but Kelly  Johnson positioned perfectly turned it into  a game  ending DP

Hicks went 1 for 3 with  an RBI, Sanchez 2 for 4 with a double, everybody but the Captain Gardner and Ref got at least 1 hit

The home town heroes  had 9 hits, 8 of them  singles

Yankees RISP: 1-8 (Sánchez 0-1, McCann 0-1, Refsnyder 0-3, Gregorius 0-1, Hicks 1-1, Castro 0-1)
Team LOB: 7

Warren  and Swarzak relieved Eovaldi

  2. Tex is having a news conference this afternoon,rumor has it he will retire at the end of the year. I am glad you posted that quote from Colon about Arod being his daddy. The media was right asking about Arod,if he isn’t going to play vs lefties or a pitcher that he destroys,why is he on the team? They want to humiliate him,make him so miserable that he will quit so they don’t have to pay him. Its an old trick,make them so miserable they leave on their own. PsychoJoe the LIAR was on with Francesa, speaking about Arod,actually said he felt sorry for him. He also pretty much admitted that the front office has some say in making out the lineup,removing all the blame from himself. But this is the way the Yankees do their players they want gone(BWilliams,Posada),but they are really putting the screws to Arod. They don’t even care that they are hurting the team playing with a short roster which makes their claim they are still going for it total bs. Whats worse is now Sanchez is Sanchie!!!!-lol Terry Collins new conference about Cespedes was just as entertaining.

  3. Most laughable is Hal saying that he hasn’t discussed the Arod situation.
    In addition to the 21 million owed him next year, a 6 million dollar bonus kicks in if he hits homer 714.
    Not playing him now greatly decrease that from happening next year.
    I am not a big Arod fan, but I do think that these pricks are as sneaky as anyone.
    YES used car salesmen, the fools on the Yankee radio broadcast and most of the print media and other baseball experts on ESPN and MLB are all giving Hal and his boys cover on Arod.

  8. Spot on stuff boys

    Shame how they do with old stars, no wonder Tex turned the narrative around, instead of attacking him next he’s got everybody patting him on the back as he goes out

    Of course the media playing it up is right up Levine’s alley in the effort to humiliate him..

    The 714 HR’s is another great point, saves the accountants a ton of money, which might be the only reason he’s not playing

    The bottom line, Hal is gonna have to pay A-Rod, and getting your money out of him by character assassinating him makes this ownership group tough to root for

    cocksuckers high jacked our team
