The "Yank-offs" Suck...They're Done???


The one thing the Red Sox have going for them...they have Jon Lester toeing the rubber tonight. Excluding Andy Sonnanstine, is Lester officially the worst starter in the AL East? No need to answer that. Hey, at least he's "gritty" out there......

How's the Kool-Aid taste now?

ill admit it, im nervous. i think everyone is. how can you not be? giambi & phil hughes are back, they just called up their #1 prospect, and the yanks have scored 88 runs in their last 9 games.

but, lester isnt as bad as you think. at least i hope not.

Chieftain said...

It's 5 games...not 6.

Tonight:

Wang = Automatic win
Lester = Sweep

Chieftain said...

"Coco" asks...

Is that the same Melky that batted .368 in July, and is now batting .424 in August?

Oh my god! I am soo impressed! The Yankees went 20-7 against Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Baltimore and Toronto!!!! They are Baseball gods! No one can beat those teams!!!

Chieftain said...

Eponymous - read this (the August 7th post of the below link), that should shut you up for a while...

you read a yankee blog that is called "yankeetradition"?

dude, you are a fag. thats the functional equivalent of Red Sox Nation.

Go get a pink Yankees hat you homo

Oh, and by the way, the worst starter in the AL East is Kei Igawa, better known as Gei Igaywa

Chieftain said...

If that's the best you've got, then that's awful.

Kei Igawa doesn't start. If you really don't know who the Yankees 5-man rotation consists of, then this blog is the wrong place for you.

everyone needs to just to shut the fuck up about the red sox and yankees shit. im a sox fan big time but they are playing like shit and the yankees are on fire. how can a sox fan sit there and say they are not worried? you guys are retards. that kei igawa comment is ridiculous. thats like a yankees fan saying the sox have julian tavarez. you sound like an asshole buddy. at least chieftain does his research. i hate the yankees but hes right. you lose pal.

so because Igawa is not currently a starter for them, he cant be commented on? thats retarded and weak. comment all you want on tavarez. fact is, igawa has made 11 starts for that team and is an utter failure. while lester hasnt exactly been great since he came back, you could make the argument that hughes has been no better. id take lester for this season based solely on experience alone. hughes has made three starts and been rocked in 2 of them. as for the rest of the rotation, i would unquestionably take the Sox. do my research? thats the dumbest thing ever put on Win Column. Igawa only doesnt start because he is a failure. fact.

Chieftain said...

You're the only person in the country that would take Lester over Hughes.

whoever anonymous is is slow. hughes is nasty. good points buddy. i hope you get hit by a bus.

Anonymous said...

for this season, i dont think it is that crazy. what has hughes proven so far? that he can suck? oh i forgot, he dominated AAA. hughes is no doubt nasty, but if you are tlaking about 2007, he does little but get hit. you are an idiot who clearly has the whole yanks fan club jammed tightly in your poop hole. do us a favor and be there the next time a fat yankee fan falls over the railing at the stadiumn so he can land on you and squash your miserably small brain

Chieftain said...

Hughes "does little but get hit". What???????

He's made 3 ML starts -- in one of them, he didn't allow a single hit!

In between his no-hit start, his first one was his MAJOR LEAGUE DEBUT (probably had some nerves, wouldn't you think?) and his last start was his first one in 3 months!!!!!

Mix in a clue - I'm begging you.

I'm not ready to take anyone over Lester but the guy just got back from CANCER! Is Giambi back from his steroids layoff?

Chieftain said...

When healthy last year, was Lester any better?? 4.76 ERA vs. 5.09 ERA. Or, should I point out that Lester's ERA was 7.66 in August last year...coincidentally, his second time around the league. Either way you slice it, Lester has proven that he can't make adjustments.

Who said anything about Giambi?? Who cares about him - he's a role player, as evidenced by the fact that he's going to platoon with Andy Phillips, Damon, Shelley Duncan, and Betemit. 5 players for 2 spots (1B and DH). You do the math.

Sox are still in 1st, are playing away from home, on the West Coast, no less... No need to worry. Seriously, the Sox will be fine. Why is everyone letting Chieftain rile them up? It took him until they got within 5 games to start talking serious. I would not pencil in Wang for an automatic "W" either...

Chieftain hasn't been this excited since he kissed his first dude.

Like I said earlier, I would not pencil in Wang for an automatic "W". Good day...

Everybody Wang Chung'd tonight!

Chieftain said...

A pet-peeve of mine is when analysts don't admit when they're wrong. Maybe my greatest pet-peeve in life.

I'm here to take my lumps about Wang's performance last night. Awful.

So go ahead, have at it...
