Why Mark Teixeira might lead to My Hyper-Tension…

It’s that time of year – Interleague!  Who could forget such classic match-ups as Toronto vs. Arizona or Colorado vs. Kansas City?  We cannot always meet up with our “natural” rival.  In some cases, our team may not even have a “natural” rival, which leads to some pretty lame match-ups.  When push comes to shove though, Interleague is still the best thing to happen to Major League Baseball.

 

Does it devalue the World Series?  No way.  It just makes the rivalry that more heated.  I would make an argument that the All-Star Game deciding Home Field advantage is more devaluing.

 

However, speaking of devaluing…

 

The Subway Series

Talk about two teams limping to the midpoint.  Ugh! This series has been almost intolerable to watch, or in my case, to listen to on Game Day Audio.  The only thing it has going for it is that C.C. is on the mound today, facing Johan.

 

Which I would love to see if it wasn’t for…

 

The Blackhawks

Yeah, I know I’m not in the New York market.  Nonetheless, because Chicago is currently the center of the Hockey universe, it’s near impossible to find a decent Baseball game on television. What makes it worse is that the Cubs are playing the thrill-a-moment Texas Rangers and the White Sox are playing the limping Marlins (who are at least at .500 which is better than either of the Chicago teams can say).  I finally gave up and landed on Boston vs. Philadelphia on TBS.  Tim Wakefield is about to come to bat.

 

Talk about comedy, which is what you can totally call my…

 

Fantasy Baseball Team

Teixeria!  Mark, you are killing me.  You’ve cold again?!  You’re like my douchey ex-boyfriend. You can’t be serious!

 

Which speaking of being the epitome of professionalism…

 

The TBS Announcers

Come on guys!  I understand that Boston took a No-No pretty late into the game yesterday, but it didn’t happen.  Move on.  Isn’t there a game you should be covering?  I’m sorry.  Almost No-No’s are no big deal (unless you’re Tom Seaver).  If it was a big deal, it would be a No-No.  Am I wrong on this?

 

I’m going to spend the rest of my afternoon reading “The Yankee Years” and eating my homemade soup (which I made for the first time this morning by the way).

    You think the TBS guys are bad? How about ESPN? The announcers are the worst! Jon Miller needs to take a nap and then read up on the teams they’re covering. “This is Joe Girardi’s second year”? “Double switch for Russo on Friday”? That was yesterday…
    I’m waiting for him to say how this young up and coming Jeter may have a pretty good future…

      Oh god…if we’re talking bad announcers, should we discuss Joe Morgan (speaking of ESPN). No one is as bad as him. Then you have Keith Hernandez on SNY. Talk about a dude who needs to read up on the teams he’s covering and no one…no one is as bad as Michael Kay on YES. I saw him call a game where he talks about the Yankees winning by two, after they lost by two.
