Record: 26-20

Well then, after reading what amounts to an entire year of Yankees scores (I seriously think this is but my second "post" this year, and the first one was really Ghostbusters 2-focused), I am sure you're already exhausted and bored.  But fear not fateful readers, I have returned from the 69 Day DL to enlighten and impress you...perhaps tomorrow (perhaps never).  

Basically, I had to get this post up or fear never getting a post up at all this year.  My time on the DL did not properly prepare me to jump right back into the posting flow, but I'm trying: doing some cardio work in the pool, jogging with Apollo on the beach, swallowing handfuls of PEDs , you get the idea.  In my absence, the Bronx Bombers have done just fine, amassing a 26-20 record after a rough and slow start to the year (let's call that the Cody Randsom Period).  Is this recent hot streak a fluke, or have the bats finally awakened with the return of the Narcissist Lex Luger?  Is Phil Hughes ready to contribute all year long, or will the league figure him out in short order?  Is my unhealthy love of Nick Swisher being replaced by an unhealty love of Frankie "Call Me Francisco And I'll Kill Ya" Cervelli?  Is the use of mundane questions to lengthen a post the most annoying type of writing ever?  Or is that terza rima? 

Answers to follow in short order.  Lucky for you there's still over 100 games left this year for me to recap via nonsensical pop culture references and youtube clips.  Game on Garth.

heard a delightfully unhinged rant from mike francesa regarding the best use of joba chamberlain as i drove north. your thoughts, teej?

TJ said...

I wanted Joba to stay in the pen last year, and I am even more adamant about it this year given Hughes' (possible) emergence and the epic disaster that currently is the Yankees bullpen.

I see no reason why Joba can't handle the 8th inning this year and then assume closing duties next year (or year after) when Rivera retires.

What did Fat-cesa have to say?

rob said...

what you said.

TJ said...

No kidding.

I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing.
