Chipper is a stud.... 4th best 3rd bagger ever behind Schmidt, Brooks Robinson, and G Brett.
Too bad PayRoid didn't move there sooner cuz he'd be the best easily. As an asside if DJ wasn't Mr Yankee one wonders if a manager would have the balls to put the far better SS in A-Roid over to his natural position.
DJ sucks ass as SS these days. No arm, little range and all instincts which isn't enough.

Still can't believe she left me...
"Be strong, Rummy," I whisper fiercely to myself. "You were too good for that cheating bulimic whore."

Braves had an 8.5 game lead at the beginning of September (Sept. 5th to be exact).
The Sox and the Braves both had enormous collapses.
The Red Sox was worse and because they are the Red Sox it carries far more weight. Like any Yankees fan will ever let it go
I actually prefer NL ball as there is far more strategy to it, the small ball I enjoy watching. Not a huge fan of the DH, having a pitcher bat requires way more strategy and the managers actually have to do something other than talk to the media.

I'm pissed that the Yanks are out but the Tigers were the better team. NY has wayyyy too much jack invested in mentally weak performers like Tex, A-Roid and CC Safattia. Yes George......errrr Hal we know you have tons of jack but pitching wins my man. Look at the 90's teams and that's how they were built. They also had grinders like O'Neill, Brosius and Tino. Too many headcases on this squad. Cut the dead weight and build around Granderson, Cano and Montero..... and leave Phil Hughes the fuck alone.
Going to be an interesting ALCS and NLCS coming up. I love this time of year. Playoff Baseball, NHL, NFL in full swing and turkey and beer as well. I'm really looking forward to seeing some family members this weekend and enjoying some good sports on tv .
