To Be Continued!!

 

The Angels – Yankees series that is!! 

What a drama-filled, exciting game it was.  A classic!!!  The Halos scored 4 runs in the first inning and the 4 – 0 score held up until the 7th inning.  That’s when things began to unravel.  John Lackey threw to a full count on against Jorge Posada and then threw a strike and the home plate umpire , as the umpires have for the entire series, called it a  ball.  Lackey is ticked and proceeds to walk the next batter and hit the next one.  Bases loaded and 2 outs.  Up next,  Mark Teixeira, a switch hitter, and Angel’s manager Mike Scioscia walks out to remove Lackey and the pitcher is not pleased.  The Angel’s third baseman, Chone Figgins, said he felt like a bystander about to watch a train wreck.  “I knew this wasn’t going to go well”.

Indeed it didn’t!  As Scioscia approached the mound you could read Lackey’s lips.  “This game is mine!  Are you S******* Me??  This is mine!”.  The reason for the change was to turn the next batter, switch hitter Mark Teixeira, around to his off side.  But it didn’t work.  First pitch, a three-run double to right-center and eventually the Yankees took a 2 run lead.  But on this night, it wasn’t enough as the Angels came back in the 8th and held on in the 9th…… Leaving the Yankees with the bases loaded.

Now it’s on to NY (Oh God!!!) for hopefully the last TWO games.  Bad weather and nasty fans!!  The Angels will be taking it one game at a time.

Sorry this was so long-winded!!  I was excited!!

Some photos:

I love the one of the 3 year-old with the halo!!!

Who Was That Guy?

New York Yankees v Los Angeles Angels of

He’s 29, from El Cajon, according to Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez.

And, in what will undoubtedly surprise many who watched Cervera traipse around the rocks and flop into the fountain behind center field, he was not drunk.

He was detained on a citizen’s arrest — likely by stadium personnel or security — and detained in Anaheim’s jail Thursday night. He has since been released, and faces charges of trespassing, a misdemeanor.

What a Dork!!!!!

He will not face charges on public drunkenness, though, a clue that officers didn’t find him to be “unable to care for himself or a danger to others,” Martinez said.

And Finally…..

Underwear from where?

Under the heading "You Can Buy Anything on EBay," file this: Sports memorabilia peddler Phil Castinetti of SportsWorld has three pairs of Boston Red Sox "game-used" underwear for sale.
Yes, for the right price, you can be the proud owner of underpants worn by Dustin Pedroia, Victor Martinez or Hideki Okajima.
"We did great with what we had last year," Castinetti told the Boston Herald. "We got between $200-$300 for A-Rod’s underwear, although we had some problems with Josh Beckett and we had to take his off EBay."
How can the buyer be sure these really are Red Sox underwear and, ahem, game-used?
"They are so used, I’d rather not be handling them, to be honest with you," Castinetti said with a laugh.

EWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
