.500. Sweet, sweet SWEEPING mediocrity.

.500. On the money.

Was that so hard?

I think it’s poetic, really, that countless teams (well, I s’pose they’re countable), numerous teams (four is numerous) have foiled our chances for sweet .500 mediocrity and we get there by sweeping the Stanks.

20-20. It’s not just good eyesight. It’s good teamwork. Just ask Papi.

“That’s what people expect us to do,” said David Ortiz, who hit a broken-bat homer to Yankee Stadium’s short porch in right and was a triple short of the cycle. “When you combine good hitting with good pitching, that’s what you’re supposed to get, right?”

There were a couple scary things. You know, like Crawford’s mad error that allowed he-whose-name-shall-be-said-with-gritted-teeth (GRANDERSON) a moment. But let’s not concentrate on that. That thought is for losers. We are no longer losers. We are… um… mediocritics. <- Is that a word? What do you call someone who isn’t a loser but isn’t a winner? Anne Hathaway?

We are the Anne Hathaways of baseball.

But we shouldn’t get TOO excited of our Princess Diaries status, says my husband.

“I just got a fastball, inner half, and was fortunate to get a good piece of it,” Youkilis said. “If we pitch the ball, well we’re going to score runs. … We’ve come a long way since 0-6, but we’ve still got a lot of work to do and still got a lot of season to play.”

A lot of work to do.


Orioles. Sigh.

More on the Jorge Posada soap opera. You know, the one where he did a hair (um, ear?) toss and said, “I can’t work like this,” before stomping off in his heels…

Jeter is defending Posada, basically saying, if he needs a day, give the poor, neckless has-been a day.

This should surprise NO ONE. As far as has-beens go, Jeter’s about there. Throwing his support to the others in the HB club? Good PR move, Jeter.

Screw Yankees puns, let’s think of more Posada jokes! ASAP. Get on it, SportsAttitudes.

    Knock knock. Who’s there? Posada. Posada who? Knock knock. Who’s there? Posada. Posada who? Knock knock. WHO’S THERE???? Orange. Orange who? Orange you glad I didn’t say Posada again!!! (it should be pointed out I thought of this within fifteen seconds of being tasked…and I suppose that shows…but it is free so deal with it people)

    I almost used that exact same picture of the money and was going to replace the money with a picture of the red sox but at the last minute I sued the gif instead. Small world. See what shows up when you put 500 in google and yahoo:)

    I am stealing the knock knock joke with an ending of my very own.

    Here we go

    Knock knock.Knock knock.Knock knock.Knock knock.Knock knock.
    Where the hell’s Posada?

    🙂 Yes? no.

    P.S.- I might be going to tomorrow’s rain out. Hopefully it gets re-scheduled for the summer:)

    And, by now, of course, we are OVER .500! Our blessed Sox did that thing they do so very well. They waited until we had sighed and said “here we go again,” and then they exploded. What a game! What a walkoff hit by A-Gon!

    Maybe we should call him “the Gonz.” You know, like “the Fonz.” If I don’t use that in a blog post soon, someone remind me. That’s witty.
