Priceless.

Melky has been so consistent and helpful to the Yankees this year. He plays spectacular defense and has so many walk-offs we should name him Captain Clutch.

Sorry Derek but we are officially dethroning you for some….

In what was supposed to be a stellar pitching matchup yesterday, both pitchers flopped. CC  allowed 5 runs…

What happened Big Man? Luckily though, Mark Buehrle did even worse and he was pounded for 7 runs and 12 hits by the Yankees.

Ouch. The Yankees sure beat up on poor Buehrle. When I say poor I mean the guy with a no-no and a perfecto so I’ll say GO YANKS!!!

Looking Ahead

Today the Yanks face the Doc of baseball, Mr.Halladay himself. Hopefully we can put the type of hurting we did on Buehrle, on the Doc.

Looking at the Present

Today the Rays beat the Royals and Zack Grienke 10-4 and say-hey Willie! Aybar was working his magic today hitting 2 homers, one as a lefty and one as a righty. Kaz pitched a great game as well.

He will.

Tic-Tek-Toe, Where Will Varitek Go?

This is a serious question. This could determine the fate of the Red Sox Nation. This could make grown men cry and women weep. What is the question you ask? Well it is……….

                                       Where will Jason Varitek play in 2009?

                                                                

                                                 

                                          Duh, Duh, Dun, Duhhhhhhhhh

 

The stage is set, the cameras are ready, and tonight we are interviewing Jason Varitek by                                    special guest of honor Ryan Seacrest!!!

                                                          

                                  We’re on in 5……. 4……3…….2………1………. and                                                          it’s  showtime!!!

Ryan: Hello everyone, I’m Ryan Seacrest and today I am being joined by Jason Varitek on the Manoman Morning Show! Today I am going to ask Jason about his offseason, what he’s doing to train and what his plans are for this upcoming season.

Jason: Hey Ryan, so how are you doing today.

Ryan: Great, you?

Jason: I’m doing awesome.

Ryan: So what are you doing this offseason? 

Jason: Well, I’m playing golf, training, and hanging out with my kids.

Ryan: How are you training for the upcoming season?

Jason: I lift weights, go running, and go training with my teamates.

Ryan: You been speaking to Manny lately?

Jason: Yeah, we keep in touch. I don’t think what he did at the Trade Deadline was right though.

Ryan: What do you think about Manny’s free agency?

Jason: He shouldn’t have demanded so much money at the beginning of the offseason but Manny is a great player and a good guy. I think he will be signed soon though.

Ryan: How about your own contract situation?

Jason: I was looking at my potential suitors and I am in contract discussions with the Red Sox. The fact that they have already offered me a contract and that I have played with them for so many years is definetly influencing my decision.

Ryan: Is Curt Schilling influencing your decision at all?

Jason: Yes, but to a minor degree. It’s good to get input from the players I’ve played with.

Ryan: So Jason, this is my final question. Who do you want to sign with this offseason.

Jason: You know what Ryan, I want to sign with my Red Sox.

Jason Varitek, with that decision you have just saved all of Red Sox Nation, grown men and women, and Ryan Seacrest. Even though I am a Rays and Yankees fan, I’m cool with Varitek resigning with the Sox because he is their captain, and if they lost him it would be like losing Derek Jeter or Evan Longoria from the Yankees and Rays.
                                            
                                               Enjoy your captain Red Sox Nation!
