It's Not A Motorcycle, Baby, It's A Chopper

If I was Butch, and I'd been asked casually by my girlfriend, Fabienne, how my day was, and she meant "how were the baseball games tonight," I would have said, "this has been without a doubt the single weirdest day of my entire life." Or something like that.

When it's 10-1 anti-yanks, and 4-0 Sox, not even a little bit of your subconscious says, "I hope teams hold on." But before I knew it, the yanks were ahead, and we were behind. Then both good teams grabbed one-run leads and held them late.

Papelbon came through.

The Rangers' dude did not.

The good news is that Mo didn't either. And the yanks' pitching continues to prove that they aren't going far in the playoffs.

We're still in first place, and we need to worry about our own schedule. But that doesn't mean I can't barf up a tonsil or two and/or call for the public execution of Buck Showalter and the entire Texas Rangers pitching staff.

I'm eating dinner now, at 11:55 PM. There was just no time with these two games going on. I thought about going over to Taco Bell for some bean burritos, but I didn't have any Rangers pitchers to walk me over there. So I made a veggie burger. Now I'm going to bed. It's best to just forget about the Dunbar side of this day. I wish the Sox game had ended after theirs. For more about the games, check out this thread we were doing over at Cyn's blog, in the comments. I go by my email address over there, Two2067, and that dude bloodyank78 who comments here goes by "Umair." I don't know if he knows he was arguing with me...

Whose is it?
It's Zed's.
Who's Zed?
Zed's dead, baby, Zed's dead.
Definitely the kind of conversation you wanted to have with someone after last night's game.
But, hey, the Sox won!!!
Umair is the one who wrote in a comment to my blog that Yaz was dead and that there are much better leftfielders around now. I replied scathingly, and that's the last comment he has made over at my place. He's a misguided Yankee 16 year old fan who has a love of baseball but not a firm grasp of the facts.
I had no idea that Umair posted over here as well. I was thinking maybe he had too much to drink last night because he was making close to NO sense.

I enjoyed your being there Jere...and got a kick out of a lot of the comments. There's never been a random game-type thread in my comments section before. It was a hoot!
//the yanks' pitching continues to prove that they aren't going far in the playoffs.//

my thoughts exactly.

Cyn gets some real winners over there. I haven't posted comments in awhile over there as I was starting to feel that my logic may be lost on them.
She doesn't get nearly the amount that I do, though...
DFyankees might NOT even be in The Playoffs, UNLESS MLB creates a Division of 1.
historically, no; she hasn't been around long enough. plus the requirement of using your email address must deter some posters. that anon dude here of late is endless entertainment... he's got a real hard-on for you, jere.
I do get some winners, but I think Reb's right about my time over there and the email address thing.

(Although, you can get around that with a fake email address, I have found out)

It also seems that the Yankees fans who also blog on MLBlogs aren't the obnoxious louts who post comments on Red Sox blogs.

At least, most of them seem to be pretty decent. Mind you, there are only a handful of them over there.
Cyn, that's why it's soo much fun!
I feel very left out on the lobotomy commenters front.

Not fair, goddammit.
I never have been to Cyn's site. I don't even know what it is. So whomever "umair" is, it is not me.
