Happy Columbus Day

Al:
Phillies bounced out. Yankees bounced out.

 


Al:
Waa waa waa call a waambulance.

 

Doug:
Are Yankees fans the biggest bunch of crybabies in all of sports or what?

 

Mike:
The beautiful thing is that in the end, regardless of the particulah playoff scheme, the results would remain the same — The New York Yankees: Biggest Chokahs of the 21st Century.

 

Al:
You know, Schadenfreude is like lasagna — It's even bettah the next day.

 

Comments

Cold schadenfreude in the morning, reheated microwave schadenfreude for lunch. With a sprinkle of grated frustrated yankee on top.


I will say that watching Leyland toy with Girardi ala managerial skills wet my appetite for the fore mentioned quite nicely.

Since I am not ready to work yet, obvious by wasting time with silly comments, I submit that the author of e linked piece is all over the map with his thoughts and says nothing.


Baseball could use a little college football or european soccer to solve the issue of "the best" team not getting the top trophy. Teams could easily develop smaller championships and trophies for particular in season events. College football has the backyard brawl and so forth. Soccer has various cups based on a season series winner. Adds excitement and bragging rights without trying to topple a playoff system that wont be toppled. I could get into a Yankees-Red Sox Hammer of the Gods trophy chase.

A-Fraud is the first player in baseball history to have series-ending strikeouts in two straight years. Weird, because it looked completely natural for him to do it.

I love the smell of shadenfreude in the morning.

Baseball is still being played? Who knew? I have moved on to the Pats and they looked pretty good yesterday.

I get the shadenfreude thing. I just can't seem to shake the idea that we could have beaten Texas,Detroit or NY if we had just been able to throw one effing more strike. I'm having trouble letting go.. Thanks for being here. Go Bruins:)

I agree - baseball would profit from a "Best Record" trophy. Maybe the AL and NL championships should just go to the best regular season record, while the playoffs would be just for permission to play in the World Series. Baseball is a lot more like English Soccer than it is like NFL football.

Bob, thank you for that A-Fraud nugget...I plan to use it endlessly in the coming week with the Yankmee faithful that have been haunting me the last week.

Had this all summed up by my excessively wonderful (he made me say that) husband the other day:

Is it better to fart and be done with it, or to fart and realize you've shat your pants?


fin.


p.s. we're still watching the post season because we paid for this shit, so we want to get our money out of it...so, um, go Team...

There was a rumored 'Theo sighting' in Chicago last week per an article in the Trib.

something the germans are good for

A man aint a man if he aint shart himself.

Dudes, this is the sickness that is the Nation. The Sox had what the Globe calls the worst September in history, the Yanks won the division and had the best record in the AL - and you talk about the failures of the Yankees? Sickness.

The sabremetricians who work for the Sox can tell you that the best teams are usually NOT the teams that make it through the first two rounds of the playoffs. SI has an article about this from a week. But on and on the Sox fans go with Yankee hating.

You say that like it's a bad thing. It's not a bug, it's a feature.
