They’re Aliiive. . . For Now

Apparently they aren’t out of breath just yet…


runs. All I have to say is: took you long enough. I get it though, you
wanted to be fashionably late right? The Yanks are now 5 back in the WC… how two
wins can change everything. 5 looks a hell of a lot more manageable.
Please let this be the turnaround.

Side Notes:

– The Mooooose train made stop number 16 and is still rolling toward 20.

– The creature named Jeter has awakened… avg. is pushing toward .300.

– The future legendary God named A-Rod is still driving them over the fence… this time when the Yanks need the long shot.

– The speed threat named Brett is determined to remain with the team, racking up two more hits today, no sweat.

– The… I got nothing for Cody Ransom… but the newby smacked one out in his first at bat in pinstripes. Kudos.

– Hughes
will be pitching in Scranton in about 20ish minutes from now. If all
goes well, his next start will likely be with the team.

P.S. I don’t know what was with the rhyming…

    Hi Vanessa, this is Sean. I’m not convinced. If they sweep the Blue Jays and get within 3 games of the wild card, then I’ll be convinced but they played inconsistent all year.

    I’m on the same page. Inconsistency has been their middle name this season. However, you never know. They have a series with Boston coming up so a sweep there would put them in a nice position. They’re about to get Hughes back and Matsui… this could possibly push them to rack up another winning streak, who knows.

    Handsome Cody Ransom? I have no idea what it looks like, but you could have used that. Unless he’s really really ugly. Although then you could have put handsome in quotes and made it into a joke.

    Vanessa, as always, I enjoy your brief, but straight to the point takes on what is happening in Yankeeland. Also, I am still somewhat new to the mlblogs thing, and had a question regarding formatting of the blog. When you get a chance, would you e-mail me so I can discuss my questions with you? Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Thanks again.

    Vanessa – –
    That was a great game, huh?
    What’s wrong with Cody Ransom? I honestly think that he is an overall better “back-up” infielder than Alberto Gonzalez and possibly Wilson Betemit. Gonzo never hit for power, and Betemit – – well you know the story. Just my opinion.
