More Yankee Fantasyland Nonsense

Meet the next great Yankee outfielder.

The Yankees are on the verge of acquiring Curtis Granderson for a bunch of crap.  Besides being a better commentator than most of the guys on Baseball Tonight, Curtis Granderson is really fast and really good at hitting home runs off of right-handed pitchers to right field.  In short, he’ll be amazing in Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees have, once again, video-game-afied their batting order.  How many Yankee fans playing MLB 2009 altered rosters to “trade” for Granderson?  How many fantasy baseball teams will be less potent than the Yankees batting order? It’s much easier to hate the Yankees when they just sign everybody’s best players.  It’s not fair when they start trading for them, too, and really good guys at that.

Damn this.

The Ultimate Showdown

Tons of things can be said about this upcoming world series.  Good versus Evil.  Righteous versus the wicked.  Upper middle class versus fiendishly wealthy.

Let’s face it…this is shaping up to be an all-time series.  The most explosive AL team vs the most explosive NL team.  The defending WFC vs the team with the highest payroll, most expensive new home, and biggest bandwagon fans on the planet (sorry Red Sox Nation, you just squeezed in 2nd).  The home grown boys against the best team money can buy.  LET’S GO TO THE TALE OF THE TAPE!

Offenses:

These are two full blown nuclear superpowers. 1-6 these two lineups are retardedly potent.  Jeter-Damon-Teixera-Arod-Godzilla-Posada.  Rollins-Victorino-Utley-Howard-Werth-Ibanez.  Those literally are all-star lineups.  However, I firmly believe the battle for offensive superiority in this series will not come from these hitters….but from the bottom three’s.  Lets look at who we got shakin’.

Man….I’m tired.

This whole “working” this is a serious downer. Along with “working” I now have a “girlfriend”. Both are good things, but both cut into my baseball time. I guess you take the bad with the good. Mindless ramblings (it’s all I’m capable of)

-Benigo and Roberts on 660 WFAN in New York are the most annoying radio duo in the world. The Met homerism is like a fine cheese here…considered by some to be a delicacy, but to most it just fucking stinks. Then you switch over to 1050 ESPN radio for Kellerman and Kenny (infinitely more entertaining), and Max Kellerman could be the biggest Yankee homer of all time, and that is QUITE a statement. Someone must dislodge Mo Rivera’s penis from his mouth or its just going to get awkward.
