Further proof that the second sentence in the subtitle above is No Exaggeration

"A New York man has been charged with beating his mother to death with a barbell after losing his temper while watching a baseball game on television.

Michael Anthony, 25, was watching the New York Mets lose a game on Saturday from his home in the borough of Queens when he began furiously banging on the walls, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement on Monday.

His father Fred Fischman shouted at him to stop, but Anthony punched him in the face and threw him to the ground, according to the criminal charges.

When Anthony's mother, Maria Fischman, 61, tried to intervene, prosecutors said he stabbed her once in the head with a knife before chasing her into a bedroom where he struck her several times with the nine-kilogram barbell."

The only move I want to See Cashman Make Today

Farnsworth. Tree. Rope.
some assembly required.

Seriously. Eat a piece of his contract and trade him somewhere for a bucket of Extra Crispy if you have to, Cashie, but just get the SOB away from the team, or Posada and Mo might just beat the fucker to death next time he pops off like he did this past weekend.

Cash to League: "Not Yours."

This would have been impossible to conceive just a few years ago:
Cash: Hands off young arms
"Just call them The Untouchables. With the trade deadline five days away, several teams would love to pry Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain or Ian Kennedy away from the Yankees, but Brian Cashman has no intention of dealing any of the three.

'You can't hold them all, but certain ones, you have to,' Cashman said. 'It's what you're supposed to do - collect as much talent as you can to help yourself.'"

Oliver Platt has DBG down

The guy playing Yogi also cracks me up.

YOGI: "Why so many dagos make it?"
BILLY: "We take it personal."

ZING!

(yes, I've bailed on the game, only checking in during commercials)

This "Special Ball" Crap is Bullshit

What is the bloody point using those hologrammed balls until after he hits 499? The point is validify number 500; 499 ain't worth shit.

UPDATE: I stand corrected: via FARK
"Weird disclaimer of the day: #499 might actually turn out to be #500! The reason : The Yankees and the Orioles on Friday will finish a game suspended on June 28. If A-Rod homers in the last two innings of that game, and he is due up second in the first inning they will play,it will be officially credited as happening on June 28! This would technically make last nights home run #500...hope someone saved it...."

My Two Cents

Alright, I listen to MLB on XM nearly every day. During interleague play there are a TON of arguments about schedules being fair. Well, here’s my take:

  1. Go back to a balanced schedule (and balanced leagues)
  2. Keep interleague play but make it balanced as well
  3. Get rid of the divisions and go back to AL/NL

Go back to a balanced schedule. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE that my Sox play the Skanks 19 times a year. The problem is: we play each other 19 times a year. If we went back to a balanced schedule the rivalry would just go nuclear. I believe it is a better test of a team to play everyone the same amount of times. My ‘fix’ is to play everyone in the AL 8 times (FOUR game sets!); 4 at home and away. With a balanced league (yeah, that's right, Bud, 15 teams in each league) that would be 112 games in the AL (8 games times 14 opponents).

Keep interleague play but make it balanced as well. Now here comes the trick. You play ALL the teams from the NL 3 times. You rotate home/away every other year (i.e. Skanks play the Mutts in Queens this year and in the Bronx next year). Interleague game total = 45. Add that to the above ‘league only’ games and you have a 157 game season. Oh, yeah, and while we're at it: DH is used in NL parks and the pitcher hits in the AL.

Get rid of the divisions and go back to AL/NL. No more divisions. Yes, I know it ‘works’ for the NFL. However, it doesn’t work for the NBA (the closest comparison to MLB). IMAFO, with a 157 game season the top 4 teams go to the playoffs same as now. However, the shitty team in a weak division doesn’t get in. You’d have the ‘one seed’ play the ‘four seed’ and the same for the second and third seeds.

Can someone tell me why this doesn't make ANY sense?

Happy Coney Day!

David Cone's perfect game

I say we toss Farnsworth on a bonfire to appeal to the Baseball Gods to please stop fucking with my head!

The regular bees buzzing in my skull don't need any help, m'kay?

This Better Not Suck

I've avoided reading any reviews, mostly because I was there for it all:

the blackout (when we realized what was going on, me and my friends, quite frankly, went bonkers with glee: "NO ALARMS WORK--IT'S PILLAGING TIME!);

Son of Sam (who scared the living shit out of me, because my sister was a near-perfect example of what seemed to be his demographic "target," and as it played out I was convinced the fucker was gonna cross the V-Z Bridge because Queens and Brooklyn were too hot with cops on a manhunt),

and lordy, the craziest, most absolutely flat-out insane season in Yankee history... until the following year, when, of all people, Bucky "Fucking" Dent tore the hearts out of Red Sox Nation (and reminds all Yankee fans that even though this season has been one big clusterfuck, "It ain't over till it's over!")

The Bronx is Burning

I'll be back after the All Star Break

Good sweet wailing baby Jeebus... 8-0 and the second isn't over? Somebody gimme a Reggie Bar to throw at this TV screen.

Screw you guys, I'm in the backyard, right now, cooking me some hunks of cow (with an ear aimed at the radio, hoping Suzie finally kills Sterling if for no other reason that "just because"...).

"Hi! My Name's Bobby Abreu. I Promise You, if you hit de ball directly at me, I WILL catch de ball."

I'm developing a serious HATE for that fucking asshole.
