The World Is Coming To An End:
Okay.. not really..
but mine is. I’ve been without cable for the past two-ish weeks
[because the cable company is full of retards and the people I
surprisingly get my genes from are… well, I won’t go there] and
oxygen is running low. This is the reason I have failed to
update for a week [along with the fact that I’m lazy].. but I’m going
to attempt to cover it [simply because Jeff oh so politely demanded me to entertain], though I’m sure I’m the one that needs to be filled in and he and Allen are the ones better at the entertaining.
The Week In Retrospect:
Manny Apparently Not Completely Unwanted:
which was a surprise to me. I actually put money on him not signing for
at least another week, because we all know he’s the kind of idiot that
would hold out that long, but props to him for realizing he had no
other option. Extra props to the Dodgers for being the only team that
that’s it. His sole name is, and will always be, a headline. The
multiple reasons why it’s bold today are a) because D.R. might not see
him play for them [yet again] and b) because A-Rod displayed his intelligent ability to never phrase his words correctly [yet again].
those who may not know, I am Puerto Rican. For those who have
miraculously managed not to know, Puerto Ricans and Dominicans have had
a friendly, sometimes not so friendly, Boskees type rivalry with one
another for what seems like forever… and considering that nearly my
whole school is Dominican, and most of the guys I argue baseball with
are Dominican, naturally, after hearing Alex would be playing for D.R.
this time around, I heard a lot of this: “We got Alex. D.R. is taking it
this year! [Blah blah blah] Haha.” [They emphasized that last part.] Now, I
honestly couldn’t care less which WBC team Alex chose to play for, so
long as he came back to the Yanks ready to kick a**, but now, with the
news that he has a semi serious hip injury, I’m saying: take no chances. If Joe G. follows my advice [which he better], I’ll hopefully be
lying saying: Haha, he doesn’t really have an injury, Alex just ditched you again. =P
that second bit about A-Rod, let me lay down the official quote: “I
wish (Reyes) was leading off on our team or playing on our team. That’s
fun to watch.“ I don’t know about everyone else, but to me, that didn’t
sound like a direct shot at DJ… however, what it did sound like to me was complete stupidity. I would normally call it ignorance or a slip of the tongue if it were anyone else, but by now,
it’d be unfair to say that Alex said that, like so many other things,
without thinking. It almost never ceases to baffle me the fact that he
is completely incapable of predicting how the media will spin things
beforehand. You’d think he would’ve learned.
El Capitan Becomes El Capitan For A Different Team:
…that has an unsettling feeling in your stomach doesn’t it? With DJ’s contract expiring semi-soon, at the end of 2011, many are daring to envision him possibly in another uniform. Though I take the same stance as Joe Auriemma, “Derek Jeter is and will always be a Yankee“, Yankee fans got a little taste of what the minute possibility of him playing against the team he was born to play for would feel like yesterday, when he sat in the opposing dugout
at “GMS Field” [Legend’s Field sounded 10 times better]. When he was playing for the U.S. in the last WBC, it
was okay.. and I thought it’d be fun to see him play the Yanks,
instead of on the Yanks, for once, but let me say this: I don’t care
how competitive you are, if you’re joining forces with Pedroia and
Youkilis against your own team, you make sure you lose [and not go 2-4
with 2 RBI’s], because in no way is this a pretty sight:
never let ^that^ happen again.
Start writing the contract now [and don’t
be stingy] so that the thought of Jeet declining doesn’t have a chance
to cross people’s minds.
won’t even make a separate post about this one because I dropped to
#41… but considering I posted once the entire week, I have to say,
not bad at all. Thanks to everyone for continuing to come back.
Side Notes: [Sorry I forgot these..]
– For the reason why all males are probably jealous of Yankees, check this out here. Yeah, Joba can rock the dorky glasses.
P.S. I seriously don’t know what else is going on in baseball.
P.P.S. Turning the big 1-8 next Thursday. Soooomeone should get me a Yankee uniform without the name on the back.
