Yankees Take Game 2…

As much as it pains me to write the fact that the Yankees won 3-1, it happened therefore I must…

Game 2 however did manage to show the shortcomings of the umpires, a bad call going against the Yankees and then one against the Phillies. Does this balance it out, NO, because you never know how many runs, if any, would have been scored had the umpires got it right.

The only other officiating that was less than perfect was the balls and strikes, it seemed that on occasion the strike zone had a tendency to be elastic, as a Phillie fan this obviously appeared to favor the Yankees more than the Phillies.

As this post season has been filled with more errors by umpires than players, I have grown to accept the fact that games are going to be decided by the call of an umpire, good or bad.

This wasn’t the biggest problem for me during game 2, it was the Fox commentators, who seemed to become instant Yankee fans as soon as they scored the first run to tie the game, after this they just became very irritating, especially when making references and then getting players names wrong, but I guess I still have some control, which is why they made the mute button.

Problems aside, I am sure some think the pre-game showing of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys was terrific….

I would love to know what Jeter was thinking here while he watched the performance, just maybe he was thinking the same thing I was…

the hooker boots were not very becoming and just maybe she has a little too much junk in her trunk

but this still wasn’t what caught my attention during the first 2 games, it was non other than A-ROD…

during the first 2 series of the Yankees post season he gave everyone hope that his post season inefficiencies where behind him and was A-ROID in their offence, the strength and power…. but since the World Series began he has become nothing more than A-VOID in their offence, an empty space, he has gone 0-8 with 6 strike outs.

 

So now we have to sit back and wait for game 3 to start tomorrow (Saturday) night at CBP, who will be the winner is on everyone’s mind….

‘it will be, who it will be’

    The umpires/referees had two missed calls. If there is ever a time for a defined strike zone to be used it should be used now. Too bad the Phillies were on the short end of it. Whoever wins game 3 has the upper hand, tomorrow.

    Those hooker boots are so tasteless. Yet everyone wears them. At least they’re not Ed Hardy, the tackiest brand to hit the city yet.
    Oh, A-Roid…I love your picture in which he looks so dumb and confused it just captures the essence of him.
    But how about that Raul Ibanez? πŸ˜€

    Maybe the Yankees didn’t “own” Pedro but they’re still his Daddy! The FOX announcers put it perfectly last night in reference to Cole Hamels: “He’s not a sure win this post season like he was last year.” So, Who’s Gonna’ Run This Town? Yanks are, Yeah I said the Yanks are!

    Try doing what I do mute the tv and listen to the game on ESPN radio. The announcers on Fox are a bigger joke than the umpires this post season. I am a huge Yanks fan but can say that these are by far the two best teams in baseball so lets hope they get a chance to settle this on the field and that a horrible call does not end up deciding this thing in the end. I don’t know about you but I don’t think this will be the last time the Yanks and Phils meet in the Series in the next few years.

    Ah Alicia Keys. I think she’s so pretty and talented but when I saw her with this get-up, I was like “what the h$ll!”. I either have no taste or her stylist needs to be fired, or the fashion community has broken down. And that A-Rod look is becoming a regular these days now that it’s sunk in his brain that the ‘roids have fully worn off, ‘tsk ‘tsk. I’m looking forward to seeing Hamels help him make that face again tonight.

    One of the very fine things about this series so far is how A-Rod has been handled by the phillies pitching. Ah, it’s a thing of beauty.

    Some say that all the corporate ticket purchasing has replaced hard core fans with attendees. I wonder if that will be true in Philly to any extent? I understand that it’s next to impossible to get a ticket – at least for under $1500 or so. True?

    So tonight’s game is 10 hours away. I’m already tense. How will Cole be? Will he have his mind off Baby Cale and has he had enough sleep? etc etc. He HAS to be focused this time….he has to win.

    You can never have ‘too much junk in your trunk’ in my humble (and correct) opinion… on second thought, yeah you can (think Ryan Howard in tights… eww.)

    I thought Jay-Z/Alicia Keys performance was pretty dumb, actually. I’m not really a fan of either of theirs as it is, and most the lyrics of that song are pretty stupid, not gonna lie. At least we took this one and are looking to take another one tonight! =) Best of luck to ya, Peter!

    Are you afraid to jinx your team by not mentioning on your site that they’ve pushed it to a Game 6? Ah, superstition is a funny thing πŸ˜‰

    Peter.. can we possibly be lucky enough to witness a Game 7. It so makes the off-season bearable when you can look back and see the season ending series went the distance. Come on… get your Philly gear on and cheer buddy!!! : )
