5 Days away!!!

Oh man, its almost here! On Sunday the Yankees baseball season officially commences and what better way than to do it against the Boston Red Sox? This is going to be a lovely Easter I must say :) If they win, perfect Easter. CC vs Beckett! Lets get it!!

Finally got on the blog to enable comment moderation because this health care spamming MANIAC keeps leaving ridiculous comments on my posts. Very annoying. So if your comment does not come up right away it's awaiting my approval. Sorry folks.

Went to a tattoo convention in Philly this weekend. I had so much fun and got tat number 10. Yes, 10! I can't believe I have that many. I got "Make Yourself" tattooed on the center of my upper back. Why? Because society should not make you, only you can and screw the ones who don't like it. Also, its my favorite Incubus song...check out the lyrics when you get a chance, they are awesome.





If your heading out this Sunday to watch the game why not try the "Yankee hottie"?!

"The Yankee Hottie"

1+1/2 oz Three Olives Cherry Vodka
1 oz Blue Curacao
Splash of Pineapple Juice

*Shake in tumbler and pour over ice. Its yummy and its Blue. Go Yankees!

Joba is a hot mess **Updated**

Unless you have been living under a rock you know that there has been a competition for the 5th starter spot.

Since before Spring training even began all eyes were on Phil Hughes and on Joba Chamberlain as the main contenders for the spot. But after a series of disappointing outings it seems Phil Hughes will be the one to get the 5th starter spot. Putting Joba back in the bullpen.

This thrills me to no end. Not just because he seems to be turning out to be a fluke, but also because of his lame ass excuses...

Last season he was always spouting all this crap when asked after the games how he felt he did, and he never took responsibility. He always said something like "I know the numbers were not that good but I also did alot of things right....I think I pitched well." Oh shut up. You sucked and thats that. I hope he gets his ass to the gym and can make it through the 2 innings that will be asked of him.

Clearly my romance with Joba is over............for now.

;)

13 days and counting!!!!!! wooooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooo

**Update**
Here's a nice opposing view from my friends at Bronx Baseball Daily:
If you’re a fan who only looks at the stats and doesn’t follow exactly what is happening I know your probably saying “ouch”, but lets not throwChamberlain in single A just yet. His velocity looks good considering it is so early and not perfect conditions for a power arm (Sabathia has an ERA over 8.00) plus it is still only spring. The concern is he is fighting for a spot in the rotation and his numbers don’t reflect a guy who has been given a huge opportunity. He pitched against Yankee hitters in an intrasquad game on 3/22 going 5 IP allowing 2 ER.

My overall outlook is this is still a two man race between Hughes and Chamberlain, and has been the whole time, but don’t let the numbers fool you. I still get the gut feeling the Yankees will start the season with Joba in the starting rotation and then they will take it from there. They have put a lot of time into making Joba a starter, and putting him in the bullpen now would just be a huge setback. I am not against having one of them in the starting rotation then putting one in AAA since I see them both as starters in the long run, but I’d rather them both see major league batters. The sooner a decision the better so neither guy gets led on, and that way you fans will not have to read us bloggers discuss this issue ever again!

Spring Training thoughts...

Just wanted to see what you all thought about the happenings in Spring Training so far. Yes I am aware "that its JUST spring training" but so far I am not AT ALL impressed with anything except Nick Johnson and his power. What do you think?

Yankee tickets went on sale today and yet nobody can get the tickets they want. SHOCKER! Ha. Gosh I hate Ticketmaster. I dont even bother anymore, I just buy them from people I know or go to Stubhub.

My first game so far will be April 17th. If your going hit me up!

Good day bitches!
