-Sigh-…..So, uhh….I guess everyone heard the news….-painful sigh-….Matt Holliday agreed….to a 7 year $120 million deal with the Cardinals…..so he left me….So much for he wanted to be a Yankee….disgusting….I’m really annoyed….I mean, I pretty much knew the Yankees weren’t interested, but I couldn’t make myself believe it….I’m only writing about this because it really upset me….and..well…because it gives me an excuse to put up a picture of this handome, strong, irresistable man…
-Sigh- Oh, Matt…I guess we were never meant to be….
I can’t help but to be mad at Matt. I mean is this really what he wanted? He wanted the most money? More than Pujols? It’s ridiculous. This song really explains how I feel: angry, disgusted, and betrayed.
Okay…I got that out of the way. Now what other options are there for the Yanks for left field? I love Johnny Damon and adore him, but I think he blew it. He wanted way too much. Unless he is willing to hurt his pride and settle for less, Johnny won’t be back next year. So, my new pick for who I want for left field is Xavier Nady.
I always liked Xavier Nady. I have his rookie card, and I always thought he was a cutie When he came to the Yankees along with Marte in ’08, I was glad. Nady did well for the Yanks in 2008, hitting .268 with 12 HR and 40 RBI in 59 games. I thought that he would be even better in 2009 because he would have adjusted to the pitchers. But sadly, Nady’s 2009 season was cut short: way too short.
That’s my card! Only mined isn’t signed.
Nady only played 7 games in 2009. I remember when he got hurt. He fielded a ball in right, and fired a rocket throw back into the infield. And that was it. His elbow “popped,” and he had to exit the game. He tried rehabing it, but with no luck. Tragically, Nady had to have his 2nd Tommy John Surgery, and miss the rest of the season. Sometimes I saw him in the dugout with the rest of the boys, wearing jeans and a Yankee sweatshirt. It upset me to see him like that. You could tell that was not where he wanted to be.
One thing I love about Xavier is that, well, he’s adorable. Unlike most baseball players, Nady has quite a nice head of hair. I just want to run my fingers through it…it’s so nice and thick and smooth!
Another thing that is really cute about Xavier is that to me, he always looks like he is in deep, deep thought. I can’t really explain, he just looks like he is thinking about the most complex things. Take a look at his expressions on some of these:
Deep, deep thoughts.
What’s on your mind?
Why so serious?
I think I know what he’s thinking in this one. He might be thinking: “I’m hurt.” Poor baby…
I hope the Yankees give Xavier Nady another shot, because he never really had a fair one this first time. Xavier, I love you. I hope your arm feels better, and that you are enjoying your offseason. AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT YEAR!
…Matt Holliday….-ugh-….I’m so over him.
2010! It sounds so weird. January. That means baseball is closer. Pitchers and catchers report in February…I can do this. There is a lot I am looking forward to in this new year and the new baseball season coming up. Here are the top 5 things I want to see this year:
#5) Andre Ethier, my love ♥♥♥
If I am not mistaken, the Yankees will play the Dodgers this year during interleague play. I HAVE to see that. As many of you know, Andre is my favorite non-Yankee player. It will be Heaven for me to watch Andre and his Dodgers play my Yanks….
#4) Melky baby…
If I can just see Melky a little this year, that would be great. Watching baseball and not seeing Melky is too painful. In 2010, I want to see my Leche, even if that means watching Braves games.
I know I will see a whole lot of Javy this season. But I want to see him be very successful. So successful, that they sign him to a nice, long contract so I don’t have to worry about losing him again. I thought Javier was good in ’04 for the Yanks, except for that whole meltdown thing…but let’s not go there! If CC, A.J., and Andy can do what they did last year again, and if you incorporate into that rotation a dominant Javier Vazquez, the rotation will be pretty darn beast.
#2) Matt Holliday as a Yankee!!!
Ow-ow! He is smokin’!!! In case you didn’t know, I am obsessed with Matt Holliday. He’s so gorgeous, and that’s a fact. And as of right now, this beautiful human being is still a free agent! The Yankees need a left fielder. I WANT HIM! Sure, he is expensive. BUT THE YANKEES CAN AFFORD HIM! Holliday would be a perfect fit for the Yankees. Imagine having him him the lineup. IMAGINE HIM IN A YANKEE UNIFORM!!! Oh my God. I’d pass out. But it’s worth it. God, Brian Cashman, whoever will listen to me, please bring me Matt Holliday. PLEASE.
This one is self-explanatory. 🙂
Here’s to the new year, 2010. I hope gives us all joy, cherished memories, and a great season for the team we love.
GO YANKEES!!! I can’t wait to see you boys again!
Mitre Excellent As Yanks Blowout ChiSox
OMG yesterday was amazing. Everyone knows that I love Sergio Mitre with a passion, and when he did so well yesterday, it made my day. Oh, and the Yankees hit well, too. The Yankees beat the White Sox 10-0.
Pitching Analysis: Sergio Mitre started for the Yanks, and many people probably thought he would do his same old thing. Except me. I always believe in him. He is so sexy that he can do no wrong. The Yanks were the Drama Club pitching wise yesterday for the first 4 innings. Mitre was perfect through 4 and 1/3. PERFECT. Like, no hits no walks just outs. Mitre. Perfect. He’s always perfect in my eyes, but now everyone else got to see it. Thome broke up the perfecto with a double. Darn. I was so mad when he did that. After that hit, the crowd gave Mitre a huge hand. Rightfully so.
That’a boy, sexy.
In the 7th, after a leadoff walk to Lillibridge, AJ Pierzinski came up. I hate him. But after his at-bat I hated him more. He hit a line drive comebacker right at Sergio. It hit off his forearm, and I screamed. But he was so cute. He touched his arm and then ran for the ball. He threw out AJ. Then Girardi and the trainer came out to see if my baby was ok. Like a real man, he wanted to stay in the game. Oh! My heart! So macho, so tough. I love him. But Girardi didn’t want to take any chances. He pulled Mitre, who as he jogged back into the dugout, got a standing ovation. I was soo close to just bawling all over the floor. I was sad that he got hurt and had that bad break, but I was so touched that the fans gave him a standing ovation. Mitre belongs now. To everyone, not just to me. His arm swelled up immediately, and some skin was broken. The poor baby! It looked so painful. But don’t worry, Sergio my love, I’ll make it better. Let me kiss it for you. I want to kiss your boo-boo. Just don’t tell your wife. 🙂
Oh! You poor baby! Let me kiss it!
Chad Gaudin took forever to warm up, but once he started pitching, we was great. 2 & 2/3 innings of no-hit ball. Nice.
Defensive Analysis: The defense was great yesterday. Arod made an amazing play to keep the perfecto alive. In the 4th. he made a diving play on a sharp grounder and fired to first for the out. Sadly, the no-no was broken up in the next at-bat. But Arod did his part. Cano also made a great play in the 6th. He scooped up a fast grounder, having to practically run into left field, and easily threw across his body to Tex for the out. Nicely done, Robbie.
Offensive Analysis: The offense was on fire yesterday. All of their runs but 1 were base hits. Just 1 was a homer, thanks to Arod. Everyone have a nice day at the plate, except for Tex, but he scored a run. Jerry Hairston, who I am starting to really love, came through with a clutch double to give the Yankees the lead they never relinquished.
|a-Struck out for Matsui, H in the 8th.|
2B: Cano (37, Contreras), Hairston, J (21, Contreras), Damon (30, Contreras), Matsui, H (21, Contreras).
HR: Rodriguez, A (23, 8th inning off Pena, To, 0 on, 0 out).
TB: Jeter 3; Damon 2; Rodriguez, A 5; Matsui, H 3; Swisher 2; Cano 4; Hairston, J 2.
RBI: Hairston, J 2 (36), Damon 2 (71), Rodriguez, A 2 (70), Matsui, H (72), Swisher (68), Cano 2 (70).
2-out RBI: Cano.
Runners left in scoring position, 2 out: Matsui, H; Rodriguez, A; Molina, J; Hairston, J.
Team RISP: 6-for-17.
Team LOB: 9.
Those stats are courtesy of Yankees.com. There was too much offense to tell, although I had it all written down. It was a great game all around for the Bombers. The heroes are Sergio Mitre, for making my heart almost jump through my skin, Chad Gaudin, for filling in nicely for my man, and the Yankee lineup, for exploding with offense. Once again, the smelly sox who cheat at Fenway won again. But whatever. I am happy today. My Yanks have a 6 game lead, and Sergio Mitre had an amazingly good start. He really moved me yesterday. I hope he can make his next start, and for the first time I am not the only one who wishes that! Mitre, baby, seriously, if your arm still hurts, let me kiss it for you and make it better. I would be more than willing to do that. FEEL BETTER, SEXY!!! GO YANKEES!!!
Jorge was pleased. Mitre from the back view….I like it.
