First night of the second round of the MLB playoffs, the start of the ALCS.  The Evil fucking Empire versus the Texas Rangers, I’m stoked.  As a diehard Yankee fan (since 1985) I am one of about a dozen people who are actually gives a shit about this series, unless you have money on the series. So I am here to help make everyone New York City Yankee fans for the next 2 weeks, jump on my back and I’ll show you to the promise land.

I wrote a blog about how 281 sends me a text before every series ‘what do you think about the Yankees?’  a couple weeks back. Well here is your answer to the one you’ll probably send me 15 minutes before the first pitch tonight.

Why the Yankees will win this series:

1) No Cliff Lee in game one or two. Huge blow for the Rangers…thank you Tampa Bay.  This CJ Wilson kid is a nice story, but someone with one playoff series of experience against the best American League pitcher, has no shot. Rangers need to be in position to split in Texas before going to New York and now the odds are stacked against them to even win on game in Texas.

2) Curtis Granderson -he tweaked his swing mid summer and went from platoon player to the weapon we traded our best prospect for.   Tore it up against the Twinkies .445 avg/ 1.227 ops and some clutch hitting.

3) Andy Pettitte – My favorite Yankee after Don Mattingly and Jason Giambi, most people argue that Mo Rivera is our key, but who gets him the ball? Andy does.  He won three clinching series games last year and has most post season wins in MLB History.

Why Texas will not win the ALCS

1) Experience – I hate using the ‘experience excuse’ but  this team doesn’t have it and neither does their Hall of Fame president Nolan Ryan.  The Ryan express pitched in only 9 games during his 27 year career.

2) Vlad Guerrero –  I love seeing Vlad bat against the Yankees.  He swings at shit, makes bad base running mistakes and no longer is a threat in the field which was his best attribute against us.  He’s an automatic out, Girardi and the Yankees staff have him game planned.  Ron Washington will stick with him too long and he’ll end up killing the Rangers in a key At Bat.

3) Daryl Strawberry – Dude, we’re the fucking Evil Empire of course we have a plan B.  The Yankees Brass have this covered off,  if this series goes 6 or 7 they are gonna launch an attack at the Rangers top dog.  Josh Hamilton, who is a sniff of O’Douls from going on a bender that would make Hunter S. Thompson and Scott Weiland vomit from sheer disgust, is a sitting duck.  The Yankees will send Darrryl to wherever Hamilton goes after game five to congratulate him on his performance, a handshake later and that rapist wit will lead those two down a dark path that will end somewhere in Reno around 9:30am the next day. Trust me this has been discussed thoroughly. Mike Bloomberg even probably signed off on it.

Sorry but I got to wrap this up, game 1 is about to start.  Go Yankees take them -185

Good luck

Late update on this, but Giambino is rolling.  Jason Giambi pinch hitting in the 9th, hit his 2nd walk off home run of the season last night to help Colorado win their 10th consecutive game.

415th of his career 43rd All time and 347 behind *Barry Bonds*

I blogged yesterday about my long term baseball prop bet and had a slight dig on Giambino for not homering since May.  Well I was wrong, his last long ball was June 23rd versus the Red Sox.  He made up for it today and belted his 5th home run of the season and his 414th career home run tying him for 43rd on the all time list with Darrell Evans and 348 HRs behind *Barry Bonds*

Savor it, could be one Giambino’s last trots around the bases.

I just got off the phone with 281 who gave me an idea of a new athlete that might be as cool as Jason Giambi to invite to my birthday party this fall. Brain Wilson (not the singer) but the closer for the San Francisco Giants.  If this dude played on the East Coast he’d have his own TV show by now.  Unfortunately his tucked away in Northern Cal where no has given a shit about baseball since Barry Bonds left the game so he doesn’t get the attention he deserves.  I need to contact him and was gonna through twitter, but apparently Brian cancelled his account when he got in trouble for allegedly being out past curfew, partying in Scottsdale AZ.

Quick bio:

1) Has an IQ of 188 – end of discussion

2) Is from South Boston, he’s Irish

3) Enjoys Cholula Hot Sauce

4) Big fan of the 80s

5) He’s a Ninja

The dude is that far out that he just might make an appearance,

When I turned my phone on this morning I recieved the below email and print screen from a rather excitable Base.  Of course he was.  He was about to get burned by the hometown Red Sox who were two outs away from taking his money on Happy Ubaldo Jimenez Day, but he was saved by none other than Jason Giambi.  Giambino hit a TOWERING 2 run walk- off home run to beat the Nation in the ninth and during the process removing two of Jonathan Papelbon’s fingers.  Forgot the US World Cup win, Wimbledon Marathon Match or the US Open this has to be the best sporting moment this Month if not the year.

This puts Jason 2 behind Darrel Evans for 43rd on the all time home run list and  350 HRs behind Barry Bonds.  The chase continues.

I need to set a player alert for Jason Giambi to my BlackBerry, because on Sunday he hit his second dinger of the season in Kansas City, that’s two in the month of May.  He is now 44th on the Career Home Run Leaders list, just 3 behind Darrell Evans for 43rd position, but more importantly 351 Home Runs behind Barry Bonds.  It’s marathon not a sprint.

An incredible back and forth game tonight in the feeble Red Sox – Yankees rivalry.  The games ends at the usual four hour mark with Marcus Thames sitting on a Jonathan Papelbon fastball and hitting a walk off home run. The whole thing is ruined when ARod doesn’t celebrate with the team and acts like a complete weirdo because he knows the camera will be on home plate.  I can’t stand this guy.  If I was Brian Cashman I would trade ARod to the Rockies for Jason Giambi straight up and eat ARods $30 mil a year salary.

oh, and somehow Javier Vazquez got the win by throwing 4 pitches, amazing
