Tough call

While I was rooting for a Falcons win Monday night, I probably got more satisfaction watching Borasbot strike out to end Game 5. You’re on the mark, Teixeira … for a .100 October batting average.

    I’m guessing I’m not the only one who physically cringed (or at least made a face), when Buck called him a “former Atlanta Brave” the other night.

    Is there a more smug and insufferable broadcast combination than McCarver and Buck? I’ve been listening to Jon Miller and Joe Morgan on the radio and enjoying it. I can’t stomach McCarver at all. STFU, take a breath Timmy. I’ll always have a warm place in my heart for Deion for dumping the ice bucket on his fat head back in ’92.

  3. Ha! That was pretty good when he did that. The unfortunate thing about the Borasbot is that if the Yankees win the Series, no one will remember how badly he hit during the Series.

    Hopefully the Phillies catch fire in the Bronx and the Yankees starters finally start showing some fatigue after pitching all of these games on short rest.

    The NY Daily News hasn’t let him slide…

    They had that photo (or one substantially like it) on the back page with the banner headline “181 Million Dollars For THIS?”

  5. good quote from the above mentioned article;

    ‘He prides himself on staying on an even keel over the course of the season, and actually enjoys that Derek Jeter took to calling him robotic for his day-to-day approach to the game’

    We’ll never know, but I would bet $50 Jeter likes him about as much as he does ARod.

  7. Anyone catch Curb Your Enthusiasm Sunday night? Loved seeing Larry tangle with the tombstone writer who ragged on Jeter.

    Yes, that was hilarious.

  9. Tex’s robotic pregame ritual: arrive at clubhouse. Count money in wallet. Eat pregame meal. Count money. Change into BP uniform in front of 3 full-length mirrors (you know, like in department store fitting rooms). Count money. Take BP, making sure not to over-exert. Count money (just to make sure nobody took any during BP). Change into game uniform in front of mirrors. Count money. Shave (just an excuse to see self in mirror again). Count money (what, he took his time shaving, somebody could have stolen some). Report to dugout for game.
