Looking Ahead to YANKEES/RED SOX

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Alright Sports Fans,
Here we go again with another pressure filled series between my beloved New York Yankees and their arch rivals, from straight up I95, the vaunted Boston Red Sox. I will be amoung the 56,000 anticipated guests at the ball park in the Bronx, the house that RUTH built, Yankee stadium. To see up close and personal a duel for the ages...... A series with such great importance and significance..... that is could put to rest ....the ongoing race between these two clashing rivals. It doesn't get any better than this folks. Two teams that have kept baseball alive....BAR NONE THE GREATEST RIVALY IN SPORTS TODAY....AND POSSIBLY EVER........The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. This one is not for the timid, the uniniated, the frail, the weak, the meek, the whiners, ....No slapping at mits....no bloody socks. Just pure Americana fun...Baseball folks..that's right Baseball......the purest game on earth(exept those powered by Balco)....
We have the pleasure once again to be emotionally entangled, engaged, wrought with pure adrenalized fanaticism as these two teams invade the diamond for what is sure to be a series for the ages........I am sure to say the following:

It's a beautiful day for baseball.

Baseball is won/played between the lines.

He's got 30 homers on the year. (On the year? Grammatically incorrect but cliche enough that nobody seems to notice or care)

He's got the batters eating out of his hand.

He's pitching a gem.

He's really throwing some heat.

He can overpower the hitters.

His fastball is really working for him.

He took something off that pitch.

He's got good mechanics.

He's capable of going the distance.

This is shaping up to be a real pitchers duel.

This game is a slugfest.

He's trying to pitch out of a jam.

He uncorked a wild pitch.

Joe is going to try and settle him down.

Stick a fork in him -- he's done.

They got to him early.

They got to him early and often.

He's getting shelled.

He's been relegated to the bullpen.

He's been roughed up in his last four outings.

He hasn't been getting the run support.

He's in a slump and he's pressing.

You can't steal first base.

He was caught napping.

There's the insurance run.

That really helped his cause. (Said after a pitcher scores a run) (This won't happen...it is the American League...dammit)

They've exploded for six runs here in the eighth inning.

They had a six run outburst in the eighth inning.

They have to manufacture some runs.

They have to step up their run production.

Three up, three down.

Swing and a miss.

Good cut.

He was swinging for the fence.

He chased a bad pitch.

Here's the payoff pitch.

The ball took a bad hop.

That ball should be playable.

This one could be trouble.

He was on his horse to catch that one.

He got a good jump.

The tying run is at the plate.

The tying run is 90 feet away.

He can tie it up with one swing of the bat.

He has to wait for his pitch.

He's seeing the ball well.

He's a tough out.

He's a contact hitter.

He hit that ball squarely. (How do you hit a round ball with a round bat -- squarely?)

He really got ahold of that one.

He was all over that pitch.

He hit that one right on the screws.

He hit a towering line drive.

That was a good piece of hitting.

In any other ballpark, that's a homerun.

He hit a solo-shot back in the third inning.

There's a four-base blast.

Touch 'em all!

That's going to be a walk-off homer.

He hit a bullet.

He hit a rocket.

He hit a laser shot.

He tatooed that one.

He crushed it.

He sent that one into orbit.

Kiss that one goodbye -- it's outta here!

That one's going, going - gone!

Some Yankee fan you are... I don't see any Scooterisms.

Yankee broadcasts are such a drag without the Rizzuto, Frank White, Bill Messer team.

and here's one we've all heard many times:

"The Devil Rays beat the Yankees. Again."
post #10 of 20
Anyone have any theories on why the Devil Rays have owned the Yankees this season?

mmmmyeah. because the yankees suck.
post #14 of 20

on an equally serious note

the yanks have the chance to not only grab a firm hold of wild card position but to tighten the division to the point where, with games still to be played (last three of the year, for example), they could get back into contention for the division title.

they also have the golden (shower) opportunity to be semi-officially buried. what is this yankee team made of?

note to Joe the T.: When in doubt, pitch to D.O.

kids ... cheessh! ..

You younguns! Phil ....

The real Yankee announcer was Mel Allen ...

"Remember the three ring sign and ask the man for Ballantine" ...

red light

sawx rake and more importantly "red light " Shilling twirls a gem, located the fastball, split exploding and tight slider......nice come back after last nites stinker by bosox.....

BTW howd you yanks fans like that out of the shadows gas from Papelbon? We got 2/3 more of those in the minors....get used to it. This unhappy state of affairs is gonna last awhile.....might wanna leave the dark side while you can

yeah, but what a great pitching duel to watch. That was good baseball.
post #19 of 20
Hah, when they turned the double-play to end today's amazing pitcher's duel against the Blue Jays, the radio announcer did a classic version of this... holding out the "THEEEEEEE" for a good five seconds:
