DeWayne Staats' Two Favorite Teams Lose

Yo soy frustrated. That happens when you have the tying run in sight in the ninth, like, every night and all these other chances to tie throughout the night, and your pitchers pitch well enough to win again and again.

But note that my frustration has nothing to do with the fact that the team we've just lost two in a row to are just ahead of us in the standings. We're not even at the All-Star break yet. Besides, I'll take a low-scoring loss over a high-scoring one.

The only team I care about year-round besides the Sox is the Yanks. A loss by them always seems to make everything okay again. And guess what just happened minutes ago? Damon makes the final out, after a double play ball when they should've been sacrificing, which came after Mariano gave up the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth. Nice.

So, the other day, former Yankee announcer and current curmudgeonly voice of the DEVIL Rays DeWayne Staats spouted some bullcrap about MLB only caring about the Yankees and Red Sox. Because we Sox fans all have lived these charmed lives where our team has won the World Series almost every season for as long as we remember. I fucking wish we had had some of these so-called advantages for the first 30 years of my life, and the 50 before that. Ass hole.

Also, catwalks.

So this four game battle with the Yanks, AFTER we beat Kazmir tonight, will be a wild card early battle, I guess. And the next time Boston plays the Rays will be in September...6 times. Maybe the Rays will cool off by then, but getaway night tonight would be SO much sweeter with Daisuke beating Scott.
