This Swan is in a foul (or is that fowl?) mood this morning. I missed most of the Yankee game, came home in time to see them start a two-run rally against the Orioles, only to see A-Rod swing on the very first pitch (what’s up with that?) to end the rally, and the game. And the way Michael Kay shrieked at the end was weird. Dude, the Yankees lost! Don’t act so excited.
Now the Yankees have lost four of five, which is bad enough. But what’s even worse is that it’s coming at the same time the Mets have won six games in a row. And to top it all off, the Mets are now in first place! So that means I’m going to have to hear all the crowing from Squawker Jon and other Mets fans.
I did have to laugh at seeing how Joe Torre hasn’t changed in the Dodgers’ dugout – he’s still snoozing, when he isn’t overworking pitchers’ arms, that is. Jon told me that the Mets announcers were mocking him over using Ramon Troncoso so much. Come to think of it, it looks like the Mets got two gift wins yesterday from St. Joe. From the Los Angeles Times:
The Mets scored three runs in the fifth inning and four more in the sixth, pounding the Dodgers middle relievers Ramon Troncoso, Jon Link and George Sherrill. All three of those pitchers were also used in the first game of the doubleheader.
For Troncoso, the appearance was his 14th, the most ever by a Dodger pitcher in the first 20 games of the season.
For a while now, I’ve been pulling my punches against the Mets, because they were too pathetic to really mock. But now that they’re winning again, the gloves are off. Watch out, Squawker Jon!
