September to forget

Hello again. It's been a few days, I know. I really just haven't had the motivation to write anything about the Yankees. It's the old "they don't care, I shouldn't care" scenario.

Ever since the last Boston series at home, I've barely watched any games. It's not that I'm a bad fan or anything. I just feel that I have better things to do than waste three or four hours out of my day to watch a lost cause. The last thing I want to see is Darrell Rasner, Sidney Ponson or Andy Pettitte stinking it up down the stretch. I don't want to watch Alex Rodriguez continue to prematurely age me. And I certainly don't want to watch Robinson Cano sleepwalk through his contract.

These last few weeks have certainly been different for me. Usually if I'm unable to watch the games, I compulsively send text messages to Google to find out the score. But now if I see the score of the game it's because I reverted back to my old ways for a few brief moments.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that the first game of the final homestand in Yankee Stadium history was rained out tonight. This season as a whole has been dreary, so this is just par for the course.

I can't wait for next year (I have CC and Sheets thoughts in my future!)...But in all seriousness my wife and I are going next Sunday and sadly its likely the last game ever at Yankee Stadium. Kinda funny how this year has gone and if things end the way they appear we may finish 4th! Yuck! It will be great though to kick the snot out of Baltimore for the final game! We got tickets in the upper tier for less than $200 which wasnt too bad (if anyone else is interested?) http://www.esellout.com/ResultsGeneralAtVenue.aspx?kwds=New+York+Yankees&venid=68
At least Hughes got the call up after the AAA playoffs, it would be a nice way to salvage his season with a couple good appearances heading into the offseason either as a part of Yankees future lure OR in a potential trade! LET'S GO YANKEES!
