The Spoiler Bowl

with 7 comments

Looks like Nothing Special K, Kevin Kernan is the first NYY beat writer to go rouge…..That’s what we need to shake Hal up, thanks Kernan you old coot… Yesterday it was Girard’s Binder, today the Red Sox young core

Now it’s about getting experience for the kids and letting them grow. As for Sanchez, he will quickly find out what it’s like to be pitched around by other teams.

Kernan doesn’t tell us anything we don’t know, but if these guys don’t say it, it never gets heard

A Mush Read

The Mushman didn’t go  after Francesa with this one, I don’t know why, The Pope had some classics this week  and I only heard about 10% of his show(s)

We like that Mush  went after Psycho Joe for lifting Tanaka, who  didn’t throw his manager under the bus by saying he was getting tired….

Getting tired and being tied are 2 different things…

Now we know why these players, who  routinely talk to one another without the services of an interpreter, use an interpreter.. You get one answer for each question, and especially Tanaka, who looks like he’s reading a hostage tape when he’s getting grilled by BrickHouse Rocky Marakavits

 “What were they saving Tanaka for, spring training? How could Girardi throw in a winning hand for a bullpen of maybes”?

Excellant observation, Francesa screamed if the throws 118 pitches he’s lost for the next game, if the Yanks lose this game,  the next Tanaka game means nothing…

Girardi this season essentially made Tanaka a once-a-week, seven-inning starter. At $155 million over seven, good work if you can get it.

Here’s where you lose me Mush…Tanaka was cleaning at  least 3 runs per game off his ERA by pitching every 5 days, but unfortunately he couldn’t do it more often based on the lack of talent in the rotation and the gidrools in middle relief…..

Tanaka being yanked after 93 pitches when you can use him to gut out and eat  another inning in a playoff run is apples and oranges compared to managing  a mid season workload

This is why you protect him when you can in season, so  you have that  extra gas in the tank in September.. At least we have a well  rested Tanaka for a meaningless Toronto game over the weekend…

The Bums Rush

At some point their teammates might want to let Puig and Bumgarner go at it.. At the moment it’s a Don King pre fight extravaganza every time  these two  start to  jaw at  each other…

As long as there’s 10 players between them they really want a piece of each other……

Anyway watch how Hunter Pence misplays the F/9 for the Dodgers winning run.. The headline is bull pen blows game, that looked like Pence nailing the coffin shut too me… Imagine if one of our heroes ignited a walk off E /9……

The Spoiler Bowl

Unless the Yanks win all 13 games remaining on the schedule, their season will  end on Sunday, October 2nd… So in light of those odds, we can  safely say  the Yankees- Rays 3 game series is a battle of the Spoilers

The Yanks will resume meaningful games as a spoiler when they  tackle Toronto on Friday for 4 games.. Them back  home to play Boston on Tuesday  for 3, and finish  with Baltimore over next weekend.

Of course the Rays who  have been on a Spoiler tour for a month now  will  want to speed up  the mathematical  process that ends the Bombers season over the next 3 days..

All we can hope for is good results from  the kids, winning would be nice, it can’t hurt to play  good and win, especially after the Red Sox found a way  to  win every game the two teams played over the weekend

We’ll give Psycho Joe the last word today

“We could have won all four of the games here,” manager Joe Girardi said of the sweep at Boston. “But we’re still playing the teams in front of us, some of them. We have to start over Tuesday.”

Yes you could of but you didn’t, and until CashMan  can find some Sanchez protection, you develop a full blown  core, find some better relief pitchers, and some starters that  can go  deeper into  games,  you won’t

This guy  gets the ball  tonight, good luck  with  that

  1. Generally speaking, Kernan is usually a self serving pontificating asshole in his prose. But, it has been refreshing seeing him take Psycho Joe to the woodshed.
    As Mr Marley once said “Stir It Up”…..

  3. Only one player on the Bombers who can wreck a game and Cash pitches to the SanBino…. #17…2 behind Mazara who leads rookies with 19 Taters…

    Going to September 11th Memorial Museum tonight to hear Joe Torre speak about Baseball after 9-11.
    Should be fascinating.
