9/11 – Yankees vs. Orioles

Hey there baseball fans, Anthony DiComo filling in for Bryan at the Stadium, where, contrary to what I thought possible, the Yanks and Orioles are going to attempt to play a game in the slop. It’s still raining here and probably will all night, but not hard enough to affect things.

Couple pregame notes: first, Johnny Damon is out of the lineup after his back “locked up” on him. He’s not sure how he did it, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him on the bench Saturday, as well. There’s just no need to take chances at this point of the season.

David Robertson is back in town after his visit with Dr. James Andrews. Andrews reviewed his MRI and found nothing wrong, and Robertson will resume throwing in 5-7 days.

Then there’s Derek Jeter. He’s excited to play tonight. Imagine that.

Who is this Marte guy? When Joe gives him the ball, I know he has given up on winning the game. Sad.

Will Joe ever learn, Again he left Andy in too long, Then screws up by replacing him w/Marte, Puff, the lead has vanished now we are trailing by 3. “GO YANKEES!”

Jeter is the greatest!

Girardi continues to suck…he has a penchant for leaving his pitchers in too long…usually long enough when it’s obvious they don’t have it, i.e. Marte tonight…to let the other team get ahead. So far the Bombers offense has been able to bail him out, but in the post season against the best teams Girardi’s poor decisions will cost the Yanks.

I’d like to see Jeter play until he is 40.

Start spreading the news, JETER is the NEWS.. Congrats, Jete now you can settle down and forget the pursuit, it’s over. That is unless you want to try for 20 Homers and set another record w/8 Yankees 20 or more HRs this season.. “GO YANKEES!”

It’s pouring out there.
