David Cone is Racist and other Yankees Tidbits
- Yankees analyst David Cone is making it easy for me to hate him. Not only did he pitch a no-hitter against the Expos in 1999, he referred to Ichiroâ€™s bat as a â€śchopstickâ€ť. Mustâ€™ve failed his racial sensitivity test. Idiot.
- Â One more win and the division belongs to New York. Just like old times. If only the Devil Rays would be as inept as the Red Sox.
- Ibanez came through in last nightâ€™s win. Sometimes this guy looks haggard and old, like something A-Rod would date, and then there are the times where he looks like heâ€™sâ€¦38. I kid. Heâ€™s doing his part. So is Nick Swisher, who dumped a bucket of ice water on Ibanez after the game. Iâ€™m not a doctor but isnâ€™t that dangerous? Same with the shaving cream pie in the face. Baseball players, they donâ€™t always think!
- There was a bird in the infield, which could be some kind of metaphor for the Orioles chasing the Yankees since the All Star Break. Or it could just be a bird in the infield. That happens at ballparks. Here at the Rogers Centre there are birds all over the place, even when the roof is closed. JosĂ© Bautista probably feels like Tippi Hedren.
- In a USA Today article, published this morning, Orioles closer Jim Johnson is quoted as saying, â€śWe’re not supposed to be here. So just go out and have fun and see what happens.â€ť I donâ€™t know, man. Maybe you are supposed to be here? Maybe the AL East was supposed to change hands? Maybe Iâ€™m just being silly? Maybe Iâ€™m hungry? Yeah, Iâ€™m definitely hungry.
- Hereâ€™s a dumb stat: the Yankees are 0-58 when trailing after eight innings this season before rallying in the ninth.
- Speaking of nonsense, Yankees top pitching prospect, Manny Banuelos is scheduled to have reconstructive surgery on his left elbow on Thursday, leading him to miss the entire 2013 season. Everyoneâ€™s favorite doctor to the stars, James Andrews will be wielding the knife. Or scalpel? Again, Iâ€™m not a doctor. Thatâ€™s a good thing because I am in no way shape or form ready to perform Tommy John surgery tomorrow on anyone, let alone a top prospect.
- Â Tonightâ€™s pitching match up is Kuroda (15-11) v. Matsuzaka (1-6). My fingers have been crossed to the point of carpal tunnel all day. Please let us see some of that 15 and none of that 11.
- Andy Pettitte is ready should the Yankees have to face the frigginâ€™ Orioles in a one-game division tie-breaker.
If you need me after the game, Iâ€™ll be learning how to perform TJ surgery. Just in case.
