Quiet Flight to Tampa…

You win some, you lose some…

cache.daylife.com

Okay, so maybe I was expecting an early April ten-game winning streak. Hey, a guy can dream right?

It’s nice to see the team do well despite the absence of Alex Rodriguez. I’d hate for him to come back and be the “savior”. Of course, as long as Joe Girardi keeps penciling in Cody Ransom’s name at third, anyone except Cody would look like a savior…

Joba Chamberlain pitched well enough to win. He went six innings, and gave up four hits. He allowed three runs, but only one was earned. He struck out five. The Yankees had a 4-3 lead in the 8th inning, but the Royals scored three runs against relievers Jose Veras and Phil Coke.

Nick Swisher started again at first base in place of Mark Teixeira, who has missed two games with tendonitis in his left wrist. Teixeira says that he can field without any problems, and bat lefthanded. The wrist only hurts when he tries to bat righthanded. With lefty Scott Kazmir on the mound Monday in Tampa, Teixeira will again take a seat on the bench. But Joe Girardi hopes that he will be available to pinch hit if necessary.

Monday will be a tough matchup for the Yanks. Kazmir is pitching great right now, and Chien-Ming Wang has continued to struggle. The Yanks hope is to keep it close until they can wear down Kazmir and get to the Tampa bullpen. Of course, that’s still not an easy task, so I am not too confident about Monday’s game. If Wang doesn’t bring his “A” game, I can see disastrous results when he faces Rays third baseman Evan Longoria.

I know that Canuck will be anxiously awaiting the conclusion of the game so that she can post another That’s my Scotty!’ post regarding her favorite Rays pitcher. I hope that the Yanks can delay that post by five days…

Congratulations, Scott!!!

 

I hope Tuesday morning, Canuck is talking about me, and not Kazmir! 

On the bright side, the Boston Red Sox lost so the day wasn’t a complete disaster!

 

JULIA’S BOYS ARE FIGHTING AGAIN

In the first inning of Sunday’s game between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angeles, Bobby Abreu took issue with a pitch that sailed high above his head as time was being called by the plate umpire. The benches cleared, but no punches were thrown. Then, Josh Beckett had some heated words for Angels manager Mike Scioscia, and the benches cleared again which led to some pushing and shoving. Four Angels were ejected from the game (Manager Mike Scioscia, centerfielder Torii Hunter, reliever Justin Speier, and hitting coach Mickey Hatcher).

Sox still without series win

At first glance, it would appear to me that Bobby Abreu overreacted to Beckett’s pitch. I don’t know what words were exchanged, but it did appear to me that Beckett was only reacting to words said to him by the Angels.

Of course, this is just an average fighting-kind of week for Julia. Her “weakness”, i.e., Toby Keith was involved in a tiff with actor Ethan Hawke earlier in the week…

Does she really think that I am going to wear a pink hat?  Them’s fightin’ words! 

WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?

Okay, this is a little off topic.  My apologies.  But what was the 32-year-old woman at the Berlin Zoo thinking when she jumped into the Polar Bear Pen, and proceeded to get mauled by the bears before she was rescued.  It was definitely one of the most bizarre things I’ve seen.  Well, next to why someone would be a Red Sox fan!  ;)

I hope everyone had a very enjoyable Easter with friends and family!  Have a great week!

Scott – I have a pink hat all picked out for you! I so can not wait to see you wearing it! ;-) Actually I had not heard about Toby Keith having “words” with Ethan Hawke. I guess all my “boys are just being boys” this week. And my friend – I have not even begun to fight! ;-)

Don’t forget B J Upton is back tonight too! Longoria and Upton should keep Wang busy, along with Barlett, Pena, Iwamura…do I really need to go on? ;)
hehehe…you REALLY want me to write another “That’s my Scotty” post? I thought I controlled myself well when he won his first game this year.
So, you just want me to write a “That’s my OTHER Scotty” post. We shall see.
Hope all you boys like watching the banner raising tonight! ;)

Scott, I think Tex should rest his wrist until it’s 100% instead of pinch hitting or trying to play through it. Yes, we need him, but I’d rather have him completely healthy. I hope Girardi agrees! I also hope we see “the good Wang” tonight!

I wish the game was on TV! I wonder if Julia can hear me cheering tonight?
Canuck

Oh yes – Julia can hear you! Scott – TOUGH night! ;-)
