Game 25, Mariners at Yankees

Post about the Julio Mateo situation

Jeff Weaver! In a nationally televised game! Because national broadcasts have to include the Yankees! It’s in the Constitution or something! 12:55 our time.

Another Weaver start! WOOOOO! Oh yeah! I know the Yankees are struggling badly, but if he pitches like we’ve seen so far, that offense could chase him out of the game before the ump calls “Play Ball!”. There’s a chunk of the Yankee lineup that’ll destroy him if he brings that weak sauce again. Hopefully, we get to see something else out of Weaver (who in the last week made comments about needing to be himself, so maybe he’ll be ignoring team instruction, which — well, hey, why not at this point, right?).

Today’s challenge: look at the tiny headshot puts up for Weaver. Tell me what that expression is.

    Go Doyle. As long as your team isn’t playing the M’s, or threatening them in the standings, go right ahead and have a 4XBH day.

    On the post-game show, Grover just said Mateo has been optioned because they don’t know how long until he’s available and they need arms in the pen.

    useless factoid of the day — Jason is the son of semi-pretentious playright/actor (Father Damien in the Exorcist) Jason Miller & the daughter of Jackie Gleason.

    Wait, Jason Patric is Jackie Gleason’s daughter?

    403: I seriously hope that was supposed to read as sarcasm. If not, then get bent.

    There are so many new posters this season, and it appears that many of them haven’t gotten their GED yet.

    Teh funny.

    Jeez, I just started commenting off and on here a week ago or something. Even I’m not that dense (and I’m a Yankees fan).

    My apologies for Jeff Weaver.

    its tough to now be forced to have complete idemnity for the guy, but I guess I’ll now have to….

    I think the word you’re looking for is enmity.

    Personality cults aren’t my thing but I gotta admit that Snelling is making it harder and harder for Vidro to defy all sabermetric probabilities and end up being worth 5-6 million dollars more than Snelling.

    He looked really good today, too. Worked counts, ran like hell even though it scares me to see him take off running out grounders — and it pays off, he got an infield single today that way.
