sorry guys, i'll be the one to provide the balance to this post...it's a number, a count, no big deal really in this day and age of more sophisticated stats...48 other mlb players have achieved this mark...i'm not impressed...i actually like papi, so i'm glad certain allegations didn't gain traction http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4366335 ...as i remember, jeter's 3000 hits, which by the way has been achieved by fewer players, 28, was not only met with a rousing chorus of indifference here, it was similarly dismissed as nice, but ho-hum...not even a post...papi got a post...you do get an atta-boy for trying to lure the sox fans back into the discussion, but i suspect most will be too busy until the sox start to show some signs of life, or arod does something really stupid again...maybe a sweep of the yanks this weekend, with arod sharing popcorn with cameron and madonna, will be the cure...

the yankees are bad enough on their own...1-12 again with risp...but, they may be digging themselves a bigger hole with their honesty about some of the bad umpiring...i haven't watched enough baseball this season, especially other teams, to say this without a challenge, but it does seem that there have been some pretty bad calls followed by bad behavior by the umpires recently...i don't have all the specifics, but i'm hearing that santana may actually given up a hit in his no-hitter bid on a hard hit ball down the 3rd base line that kicked up chalk [disclaimer: i don't know if there was an argument or not on that one, so just a blown call, a historically significant one though]...then there was the blown call by welke and nelson that allowed the sox to extend a run scoring inning against the tigers...tiger catcher clearly caught the ball for strike 3...2 umps didn't see it that way...leyland was tossed...the other day jeter clearly threw out a guy sliding head first into first base...i mean he wasn't out by a mile, he was out by a mile and a half...the call: safe...and we have the laz diaz/russell martin controversy...now last night's dust up with girardi and long [arguing a strike call on granderson...a no-no, of course that'll get you tossed], and what apparently was a rather dickish response by the ump, bob davidson, to provoke long...girardi got pissed, so he got tossed...maybe i should have known this, but the president of the world umpires association?: joe west...a fish rots from the head right?...oy....now i'm not suggesting some kind of anti-yankee conspiracy theory here, at least not yet, because some of the calls i referenced did not involve the yankees...the umpires are not doing themselves any favors these days, not so much with missed calls, but their sometimes dickish and childish reactions to criticism...we've had this conversation here before, but apparently someone needs to have it with selig, torre, and the umps...this should be a huge red flag for mlb, which alas, they will continue to ignore...as for anti-yankee conspiracies, i'll keep watching...in the meantime, they need to learn to hit and pitch a little better...

we did score 8 runs, which on most nights should be enough to win...frankly, counting on hughes to give us anything more than a random teaser to keep his spot in the rotation, is foolish...he appears destined to be a woefully inconsistent .500 pitcher with an era north of 5...

and i think that's the most disappointing thing about arod, the presumed lack of production for the years/$ left on his contract, especially with the yankees talking like they want to try to lower overall payroll...i'm sure some of that's just noise, and they'll do what they need to do to sign cano and granderson for example, but it's still aggravating to see $50m [with tex] of ineffectiveness clogging up the middle of the lineup

the troubling thing is that we can't seem to score runs without hitting a homer...and i don't think we've won a single game in which we didn't hit at least one homer...that's not a good formula, particularly in the playoffs, where it seems like the pitching is always stingier...cue jim mora "playoffs?" meltdown...hahaha

"...At least the Sox are worse?..." never like to hang my hat on that kind of thing krueg...don't get me wrong, i get some perverse enjoyment out of the soap opera in beantown, but baseball's much more interesting, and the discussion here much more lively, when both teams are doing well...call me spoiled, entitled, whatever...that's just the way it is...
