8/4 – Blue Jays at Yankees

Tim Britton here as the Yankees try to avoid a home sweep at the hands of the Blue Jays — something that hasn’t happened since 1992. The Bombers have yet to be swept in a three-game set at the new Yankee Stadium.

We’ll see if Game No. 13 since 599 is the lucky one for the third baseman who wears 13. It is also, it should be noted, three years to the day since Alex Rodriguez clubbed his 500th home run off Kansas City’s Kyle Davies. Rodriguez is 4-for-17 with one home run in his career against Blue Jays’ starter Shaun Marcum.
BLUE JAYS (56-51)

Saw the Twins win on MLB today. Cracked up when the ball hit the catwalk. It was as if the Babe’s hand guided the ball to the catwalk. Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good.

Like

This afternoon in Tampa, the Twins beat the Rays 8 to 6. Funny game too as the Twins built a 6 to 0 lead that was tied in the bottom of the eighth with a pinch hit Bartlett slam for his third home run of the season. The winning run scored in the ninth when a two out pop up hit a catwalk and fell fair for an RBI hit. So the Yankees move back to sole possession of first place without playing a game.

(email sent to NY1 sports talk)
Dear Tom and NY1 friends,
As as NY Yankee’s fan, I am happy and proud of Alex’s accomplishments wearing our uniform and getting us back on first place and a winning mood.
I acknowledge all the issues with his use of performance enhancing substances, including steroids, and the comparison made between players in his category.
I agree that standards are made as a way to measure and compare performance, therefore, there is no way you can then compare somebody that deviates from the rules.
Nevertheless, the comparison across different “eras” of the game are extremely difficult, for many reasons, including the fact that there is a dramatic increase vigilance and monitoring of such behavior (use of performance enhancers) in recent years and we have to wonder if we can compare the “other” form of performance enhancement that is allowed, for example, the coaching, personal trainers, DIET, vitamins, etc, without leaving behind innumerable variables like quality of air, other behaviors like smoking, second hand smoking, alcohol consumption, disease related productivity (a common cold doesn’t mean the same this days) etc, etc.
Indeed Alex admitted to using PED’s, on camera, while on the biggest stage on earth (NYY public/press) and maybe THAT was his biggest accomplishment yet and probably the one that will have the biggest impact on his overall health, longevity on the game and future achievements.
He is now a more relaxed, happier team-player, and nothing beats that!
Congratulations to A-Rod and the best team on the planet! Go Yankees!
Dr. Rolando Sousa, MD.

Yankees win, and A Rod hits no.600. Now lets hope he finds his power stroke, and Jeter finds his usual late season form, and Pettite gets back from injury soon. Just over 50 games left and Tampa are going to win a lot more than they lose.

I was driving mainly today so had to pick up on the game on the radio up here in Toronto. Didn’t get the same hype as I would have in New York on the 600 dinger. Seems up here the talk is about the tainted number given the roids A Rod admitted using. Too bad that will always be a cloud over such an accomplishment. Probably will keep him out of the HOF. Anyway, it’s over and the team can move on with winning. The last few games have been bad offensively and defensively and pitching. They need to keep winning to get back into first place. Can only hope the Rays will lose tonight to the Twins. And by the way, Robert and Seeknay, we have two shiutzus, both females, black and white and brown and white, Abby & Sammy, cute and cuddly. Not really a male, macho dog I guess. No rotweiller or pit bull or german shepherd for sure. Let’s hope this will get the team going again. Waiting for 600 was a nightmare and seemed to affect the whole team negatively. Good win by Phil today and the pen.
