• Well, At Least The Orioles Finally Lost A Game…

    My 10-year old daughter has a bit of a cold this weekend.  Friday evening, it started.

    Today, she just wanted to chill inside and watch movies on  the big T.V. in the family room.  But, the issue there is that my 8-year old son would bug the hell out of her trying to do that – if he was in the house as well.

    So, today, I did something I almost never do:  I hit StubHub and got two tickets for me and him to head up to the Bronx this morning.  It was a pretty good deal.  I got  two tickets for Section 422, Row 12, up in the Grandstand for less money, combined, than it cost me to park the car in the River Avenue Garage.

    Yes, we were way up there – three rows away from the last row in the Stadium.  Yet, we had a great view of the field.

    I really thought A-Rod was going to tie it up in the ninth.  Man, that was close.

    Luckily, my son and I caught the end of the Yankees game on TV yesterday after some cage work and a practice for one of his fall ball teams.  And, the excitement of that one still had enough carry over to offset the loss today.  And, it was a close and exciting game, albeit long in time, this afternoon.

    One thing:  We were at the park at 11:30 AM and in our seats before the first pitch.  But, we never heard roll call today.  Did we miss it?  Or, did they not do it?  We both thought that was strange.

    Another thing:  Our entire section was all in agreement that Nunez has no business playing shortstop in a game that matters.  Why he’s out there, is beyond me.  He’s the Bobby Meacham of his generation.

      Completely agree on Nunez. If Jeter can’t go, play Nix. He’s pretty comparable to Nunez with the bat anyway, it’s not like Nunez is A-Rod in his prime out there.

      What is with the umps at first this year? Wow.

      One thing about this whole series: All one run games. The Yanks may have taken 2 of 3, but, Oakland comes out of it knowing they can go toe to toe with the Yankees if they meet in October.

      There is no there, there. Nunez is not a big time offensive player and his defense skills are not big league. The bottom line, he should be playing the outfield at triple A, maybe he can transition to a decent back up. That is what we are talking about here, nothing more.
