      As excited as I am for the playoffs, i’m sad to see this regular season end. All the anticipation we had on here since last November, since all of the big singings and everything this team did all season it’s certainly sad to see it over.

      I really fell in love with this team, I hope they can keep it going and play many more games for us to enjoy.

      That show “I Breathe Baseball” was probably the lamest thing I’ve seen on MLB network. Is that guy famous or something? Why do I care that a guy, who’s famous and rich, gets to meet the Yankees and hang out on the field? Maybe if it was just an average Joe…even then, snore.

      Anyone else think Swisha sweet should be up for “Comeback Player of the Year?”

      I’d prefer him take the rollaids reliever of the year :P

      Were there really any available tickets today? I tried exactly at 10AM for three different games and wasn’t offered anything…tease.

      oooh, forgot about it. It’s alright though for me, cause even if I had remembered and was there when the tickets were available, I lost all my $ in AC this weekend lol.

      Carl Pavano for saving the Twins’ season (for at least a couple more days). It baffles me to type that :D

      You guys should’ve heard the ovation he got. Granted, he didn’t pitch all that great, but he still got the win, and a thundering ovation from the crowd after the game.

      How awesome is the Metrodome live? It looks like it was a helluva time. Must have had trouble hearing the rest of the night huh?

      @ Corey:
      It was pretty loud, but not as loud as I thought it would be. Maybe my expectations were out of line given everything I’ve heard over the years. They gave out “homer hankies” yesterday.

      Fans were pretty friendly, not much in the way of profanity (come to think of it, I don’t remember hearing any). The signs declaring that guns are forbidden in the Metrodome caught me off guard. The dome is pressurized, so your ears’ll pop upon entering. Also leaving, a whoosh of air pushes you out. You can trip and fall, if you’re not careful. I suppose that’s the reason you have to enter/leave through the revolving doors. Time was running late for me, so I didn’t get to check out Target Field. Guess this gives me a reason to go back.

      Witnessing the closing ceremonies, it appears that despite his flaws, Kirby Puckett could/can do no wrong in MN.

      I did make it to the Mall of America, that place is huge. I have some pictures of the “red chair” (marks the longest HR hit @ the Met) but they didn’t come out as well as I would’ve liked.

      MJ,
      You are one sick person. You need psychiatric help. I saved everything you posted and if anything happens to Longoria Watson is going to get a nice message from me with attachment of your comments. Did you forgot that your pitchers are the ones who started with the headhunting? What do you think about Joba the drunk, Melancon the punk, AJ the headcase? I guess its okay for the Yankee pitchers to hit or throw over people’s head but its not okay for other pitchers to do that to the Yankee players. What did all the pitchers have in common? Girardi the nut. Tell you what. If the Yankees make it to the WS and face the Cardinals they better not do anything stupid and hit any Cardinal player because they will face the music with Larussa. Larussa is not going to be bullied by Girardi or his cronies.

      Funny, if you paid any attention to the Yankees at all, you’d realize that:

      1) AJ leads the league in walks and HBP, meaning he has no idea where the ball is going a good amount of the time.

      2) Melancon is a rookie who couldn’t find his control. He barely had a roster spot, why would he hit someone on purpose when he could be busy proving his worth to his own team? Makes no sense.

    15. Corey
      October 5th, 2009 | 1:39 pm

      sorry, I mean that AJ leads the league in wild pitches not hit batsman. He does have a large number of HBP, however.

      Ole Bob and I are actually family friends. He’ll be happy to hear that I’m doing well and he’ll thank you for sending your regards.

      ***********

      In more serious news, Kia, I appreciate your concern for my mental health. It’s always touching to know that a blog reader such as yourself would care enough to save my comments and compile them for the benefit of MLB’s security detail. After all, if anything happens to Longoria in a game (as I wished), it would clearly be attributable to me, right? Because I was pitching, right? Or because I wished it?

      If I can wish things and make them true then I’m wishing that Scarlett Johansson shows up at my apartment tonight with a suitcase full of money with my name on it. I’m also wishing that you chill out just a touch.

      Girardi the Nut, Joba the Drunk, Melancon the Punk and AJ the Headcase and I will all toast to your future success as the Queen Bee of what surely must be the craziest universe inside your own head.

      Cheers!

      MJ,
      Didnt you say that you wish the Yankee ended Longoria’s career? Unless I’m missing something that means that you want him dead or unable to play baseball for the rest of his life. This is the second time you said that. Was that a joke or you meant it? If it was a joke then I find it kind of disturbing to even kid about something like that. So what is it?

      LOL! I didn’t even see that until just now. If McNamee wins his defamation suit against Clemens, I hope he buys a file cabinet or a bookshelf. It’s gotta be better than having evidence lying around in empty beercans, right?

      It’s all good Kia, don’t worry about it. Nothing I could wish on Longoria could ever happen anyway. Don’t lose any sleep about it. Evan will be just fine.

      Apology accepted, dear.

      MJ,
      In my experience people that wish people harm are usually disturbed so that is why I suggested some type of help. You sound like MCCabee from the boards. This guy was always on the boards and said that Manny is going to get hit right at his temple from crazy Farnsworth. Low and behold the following night Manny had to duck down to avoid the hit. The good thing was Arod warned him that it was going to happen and who was going to do it so he avoided it. The question is who ordered the hit and how Arod knew it? Why do you think I call Girardi a nutcase? Because he is.

      I can be wrong, but are you suggesting that a reader of a blog continually wrote about Kyle Farnsworth hitting Manny in the head, and Girardi picked up on it, told Farnsworth while A-Rod overheard the conversation and then Alex decided to let his pal Manny in on the intended purpose-pitch right at his dome to thwart the evil-doings of Nutcase Girardi?

      Yeah, I believe this.

      How about that Miguel Cabrera, huh?

      Maybe we should be thankful our big hitter was crushing 7RBIs in a meaningless game while the Tigers big hitter was getting wasted til 6am with White Sox players, getting in fights with his wife and almost blowing the season for the Tigers.

      Cabrera registered at .26 BAC? To quote Suyzn, “OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS!”

      A-Rod looks a 1000 time better after Cabrera’s deal, although I never had a problem with A-Rod, other than some of his shenanigans during the 07 World Series with the opt out stuff. Although in hindsight for him, with the money he ended up getting, opting out was a brilliant move.

      Anyway, when I think of facing the Twins, I get this image of Kenny Rogers suddenly pumping mid-90s heat past the Yanks, only with Carl Pavano in his place. I don’t think I could physically handle him beating the Yanks, it was bad enough with Rogers, who I think at least tried with the Yankees but couldn’t mentally handle it at that point.
