The end is nigh, people...

The Cards choke, and the Padres are still in the NLDS. Bet you Cards fans saw that one coming. Even Stevie Wonder saw that shit coming. The Cards are more inconsistent than a man who's cheating on his wife coming up with a good story.

The Yankees are going to become the joke of the century. Which one? That age old joke you say for overpriced and underachieving teams. "What do you call a group of millionares sitting at home watching the World Series?" Your answer, "The New York Yankees."

The Tigers pretty much let Jeremy Bonderman go eight and a third innings with few runs, and only one score to show for it. In a jaded town like Detroit, that gets you a standing O. The Yankees played the Shell Game with all their pitchers hoping one would keep the Tigers down. Nothing worked for the Yankees since game 2. By the time you read this, half of Detroit will be burned in celebration. Let's not even talk about what they'll do if they win the ALCS...

By the time you read this, the Mets will be trying to avoid playing five games, if the Dodgers manage not to choke it up like Ron's predicting.

In the words of Fatass Lasorda...

Fly, fatass, fly!

What killed the Yankees (besides the abominable pitching) was the loss of the team chemistry that got the the AL East in the first place. Was it really all that necessary to put Matsui and Sheffield back into a lineup that was doing pretty damn good already? Fuck, no.

Don't get me wrong, I like Matsui and Sheffield--but honestly, they didn't add a damn thing to the postseason that justifies throwing them into the mix. Sheffield was especially useless. Why on earth would you start an inexperienced first baseman in the POSTSEASON?! That's the kind of shit you do in spring training, you do it in the early part of the season--WHEN IT DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER! Shit, Andy Phillips or even Craig Wilson could have done a far better job at first AND hit as much as (if not more so) than Sheff did out there.

As for Matsui, even though it did appear that he hadn't lost a step since his wrist injury, you could tell that it wasn't quite the same as having Melky Cabrera in the lineup on a daily basis. There was a different kind of energy there when Melky was starting regularly. Having Bernie going from starter back to pinch-hitter had to have some impact as well.

People get used to a routine at work, and ballplayers are no different. You start changing the dynamic of any workplace and it's going to affect performance. Sometimes, that can be a good thing--but not this time.

What the Yankees had up until 10 days before the postseason was working. There was no need to tinker with it. As a wise man once said to me, "You dance with the one who brought you to the ball." I wish he'd told that to Joe Torre.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to keep an appointment to beat Tom Verducci with a barbed-wire covered baseball bat. Fucking SI curse.

Someone should just put Tom Verducci on the cover of SI. Maybe he'd blow out his writing hand or something.

I think his writing hand is tempered by many sessions of self satisfaction, Ron. Considering the guy probably is a complete douche bag, I don't think he'd get the pussy that easily without roofies or a lot of money. There's no way he'd be able to easily blow out his writing hand due to his frequent sessions of self service.

Despite the difficulties, Perry has retained [url=]Ugg Boots[/url] an upbeat demeanor on the campaign trail, and has been at ease meeting voters one-on-one.It's an asset his campaign hopes to feature during the 14-day Iowa bus tour he begins in northwest Iowa on Wednesday, ahead [url=http://www.uggscheaponline....]Ugg Boots Cheap[/url] of Thursday's debate in Sioux City, the final debate before the caucuses. It's a chance for him to feature his courtly charm, as he did promoting the daily blend for sale at Café Diem in Ames. "It's a light little coffee," he said with a grin. In a [url=]Cheap Ugg Boots[/url] barbershop in Beaufort, S.C., last week, Perry was asked how he was coping with campaigning after undergoing back surgery last summer. "I've gotten my second wind," Perry replied, rocking in his black orthopedic shoes.Whether [url=http://www.manoloblahniksho...]Manolo Blahnik Shoes[/url] Perry can claw his way back into contention is unclear.Last week, he opened a new line of attack against Romney and Gingrich, pointing out their past support [url=http://www.designershoe4uk....]Prada Shoes UK[/url] for requiring people to acquire health insurance, a mandate very unpopular with conservatives.
