Yankees FML: April 12

I’m debuting a new feature on Scott Proctor’s Arm today.  It’s called “Yankees FML” and will only be used when the Yankees lose.  Thus, I hope I don’t have to write these more than 70 times.

For those who are not familiar with what FML means (the definition is not exactly safe for work), please visit Fmylife.com to get a better idea.  Each post begins with “today,” and ends with “FML.”

Today, my manager decided to over manage and ended up snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.  Up 4-3 and with two outs and no one on base in the eighth inning, he decided to get cute and take out Damaso Marte in favor of Jose Veras.  Three runs and another pitcher later, the Yankees lost 6-4 to prevent a sweep of the Royals.  FML

I like the idea, just not the sound of it - if you catch my drift.

I don't think that's 140 characters or less.

It's not Twitter!

Today, my team let their ace strike out 13 and then lost on two unearned runs. FMM. (F*** My Mets)

Great work; keep these coming.

I hope I don't have to so often!
