I have finally decided that, while I can't actively root for either team in the World Series, I am fine with either side winning.

-If the Yankees win, it means those stupid smug Phillies were beaten, and my Dodger loving heart can be at peace.

-If the Phillies win, it means the Yankees "big moment", that they spent so much money to achieve, got spoiled, and my schadenfreude loving heart can be at peace.

As long as you are at peace, Josh. We wouldn't want it any other way!

Wait, you didn't just -- you did! Look at that Beard Mode avatar! I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy...

From a friend of mine who works for AP as an editor:

A pretty funny line from Joe Sheehan of Baseball Prospectus:


In the Yankee clubhouse after the game, maybe 20 minutes after the final pitch, Kenny Albert asked a champagne-soaked Mariano Rivera, "Have you started thinking about the Phillies yet?" I would have given anything for this:

"Yeah, Kenny, that's what I was just doing, and all these mother******s won't shut up. My scouting reports are soaked in this crappy grape juice they're calling champagne. I need to think about whether to throw the cutter to Ryan Howard or maybe go to the knuckleball I've been working on. The 15 or 20 minutes we've had since the game ended…it's all wasted time. We'll never get it back. If we lose the World Series, lose because of a lack of preparation, these guys will have to live with that. Now get out of my face so I can go back to thinking about the Phillies."

If only; if only.

Don't give me any credit. Check out more of M. Brown's awesomeness at The Left Field Pavilion.

Look at the bright side. If the Yanks win, it'll almost be an asterix in the record books, after all didn't they just go out and blow $423 million in FA pickups in the offseason? That, added to their insane payroll, means they'll probably win but garner no respect.

And the second point, it sure would make those annoyings Phils fans shut up.

If the Phils win, I can't imagine enduring another season next year listening to how they knocked off the unbeatable Yanks and how everyone else is crap compared to them...

I had another awful dream. I dreamt that I was really craving a PHILLY cheesesteak. I'm boycotting Philly cheesesteaks indefinitely. But in the dream, I really wanted one, even though I knew I was boycotting them and why I was boycotting them. I was about to take a bite out of one when I woke up in a cold sweat.

Fanerman-

You may need to consider therapy.

fanerman said...

I could certainly use some...

Michael Bloomberg, the Mayor of New York, has made a bet with the Philly Mayor, saying that if the Phillies win, Philadelphia can officially become New York's sixth borough. If the Yankees win, Philly gets Staten Island

For shits and giggles, read the off-season move proposals over at Dodger Blues.

Some want to get an Ace, which is a no-brainer. Others want to trade for Dan Uggla. Yes, I said "Uggla." Shouldn't we just give Joyce DeWitt a chance?

Dusty Baker said...

I definitely want to give Joyce DeWitt a chance.

And to give peace a chance.

rbnlaw said...

DB,
That's better than giving Joyce a piece (peace?).

The Beard looks ready to kick some ass on that card.
