plan ruined!

POST #    279

my master plan involving the evil empire and armando benitez has been derailed. tonight, the yankees and mariners swapped players in the form of armando and jeff nelson.

joe torrie said of the trade:
"Nellie's a better fit for what we're trying to do, getting to Mo. That doesn't mean that Benitez isn't as good as Nellie, they just serve different roles. We won with him before, so there are a lot of questions already answered. Nellie's been tough to replace.''

reading between the lines:
"nellie doesn't blow the lead like armando. armando is clearly not as good as nellie, since he loses games, and nellie can keep a game close. we won with him before, and with armando, we've already lost some. i'm glad we got rid of him before it was too late."

reliving good this game, armando had the type of game that i hoped he would have for the for rest of the season and for the playoffs. oh well, the evil empire will still fall...and maybe still at the hands of armando.

face it -- the yankees are simply good, and rooting againt them will only bring the rooter additional pain on top of that caused by his or her (meaning Tien) own team (meaning the Mets).

bah, i'll just keep being bitter and focus all my negative chi (that's right...chi) on the yankees and their impending downfall.

yankees suck. at least that's what they say in boston. at sox games. not necessarily when they are playing the yankees, either. they could be playing anyone, and people would still chant 'yankees suck'.

do they make t-shirts that say "yankees suck!" followed by another hated team that swallows?
