Say a Prayer for Bobby

New York Daily News - Yankees - Murcer battles brain tumor:
"Murcer, 60, a Yankee institution as a player and broadcaster for 40 years, had been experiencing headaches and a loss of energy in recent days and, after an MRI on Christmas Eve, the tumor was discovered. It was then decided that he would seek treatment at the MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, one of the foremost cancer facilities in the country."
I liked Bobby as a player, but I love Bobby the broadcaster. He's the Anti-McCarver, especially when a game gets out of hand and he and Michael Kay start getting goofy. There were times when you could practically see Kitty thinking "WTF?"

And when the wire him with a mic during Old Timers' games is some of the funniest stuff, evah.
box seats suck!

A case of natural selection

If there's any justice, he will be elected along with Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn, and Mark McGwire will not.

He did it the right way. McGwire is suspected of taking performance-enhancing drugs. Until McGwire's name is cleared, if it ever will be, he will not receive the support of voters who would rather wait until there's evidence one way or the other.

"So do you think you'll get inducted this time?" Rice was asked after returning to Boston from his other home in South Carolina.

"I don't know the answer to that," he said. "I don't understand the voters sometimes. If you have the numbers to get in, if they compare to other people you've already put in, if the numbers are there, then why aren't you in? Why is Bert Blyleven not in with all of those wins and all of those strikeouts? Why is Lee Smith not in? Goose Gossage? Doesn't he have the numbers to get in? If the numbers are there, then why not? Why are so many people excluded? I never understood it."

Failed DBG Rehab Flaps Dumb Gumbs

George gave you a redemption ticket and you blew it. You're now (you hope) back to being a Mutt schmuck, so keep your mouth shut:
Strawberry: Jeter must 'embrace' A-Rod
Strawberry, a former Yankees and Mets star, spoke after a news conference to announce that Yankees special adviser Ray Negron's book "The Boy of Steel" will be made into a movie. The book tells the story of a cancer patient who became a Yankees bat boy for a day.


Rodriguez was booed by fans at times last season, and Strawberry said A-Rod has been treated like "an outsider."

"He's a sensitive guy," Strawberry said. "He's only played in Seattle and Texas. It's not New York. It's a big difference. You don't get booed in Texas. You don't get booed in Seattle when you play there."

Jeter, the Yankees' captain, has been cool toward A-Rod since a 2001 Esquire article.

"Jeter's been blessed with great talent around him," Rodriguez was quoted as saying in the magazine. "He's never had to lead. He can just go and play and have fun. And he hits second -- that's totally different than third and fourth in a lineup. You go into New York, you wanna stop Bernie [Williams] and [Paul] O'Neill. You never say, 'Don't let Derek beat you.' He's never your concern."

Yeah, right, A-Hole... run that shit past Red Sox Nation, where your nickname is "Slappy" and they Photoshopped you wearing a handbag. You never even thought about earning a WS ring till you signed with Jeter's team.
Strawberry was a player development instructor for the Yankees before resigning in February 2004. He shifted to the Mets as a spring training instructor in 2005 and plans on being with them next year.

Resigning? You got told to blow because everyone realized you were only qualified to "develop" talent worthy of the NBA. Willie felt sorry and gave you a rebound paycheck, and you fucked that one up, too.

Desperately Courting a Kick in the Crotch

Look, no one is ever gonna accuse Mickey Mantle of being a saint, but this is definitely stepping over a line....

In this town, you fuck with Number Seven at personal peril, bitch.

New York Daily News - Shameful new book pimps Mick

The woman who crassly championed O.J. Simpson's kill-and-tell book is now pushing another blasphemous tale - and this time Judith Regan is taking on one of New York's sacred heroes.

The memory of Mickey Mantle will be sullied by ReganBooks in a "biographical novel" that has the Mick recounting an imagined past replete with pornographic passages and foul jokes.

Author Peter Golenbock admits that much of "7: The Mickey Mantle Novel" - including a steamy scene where Mantle beds Marilyn Monroe behind Joe DiMaggio's back - are based on "not documentable" stories.

"not documentable"... why not just say "I made this shit up"?

Golenbock, who co-wrote Johnny Damon's autobiography [CleanedUp Caveman wrote an autobiography? Why?] and "The Bronx Zoo" with former Yankee reliever Sparky Lyle, makes his reasons for writing this book clear in the prologue, where he imagines himself talking with Mantle.

"Maybe this is the book that will make me rich," he writes. "I'll publish the raunchiest book about you, and my guess is it'll be a smash because no one has ever written a book like this before."

Well, at least the fucker is honest about it. That Murdoch money won't stop him from getting the everliving shit kicked out of him once his face gets recognized around town, though.

You don't tug on Superman's cape;
you don't spit into the wind;
you don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger
and you sure as shit don't mess with The Mick!
