I was a little surprised the Yanks opted to retaliate against the Rays in a Spring Training game. The starting pitcher was tossed for throwing chin music to the first batter. Then Duncan gets ejected for sliding spikes up (he was out by at least a third of the distance to the bag).
I hate baseball fights in general. Everyone rushes on a field, maybe some shoving, but rarely does anyone really fight. I think that is why I view Jonny Gomes as pretty much a big wuss. Charges Duncan from behind, and when he realizes no one is stopping him finishes it with a little shove looking for someone to hold him back so he can then act like the drama queen he is. What a wimp. If you're charging all that way, then make worth your while and deliver a shot.
Regardless of today's events, it underscores in my mind growing evidence of the stepped level of intensity that Joe G. brings vs. Joe T.
Another sign we are old? - - March marks the 25th anniversary of Thriller. Wow.
I saw a bumper sticker and a license plate on my way home from work yesterday each referring to the Red Sox. The plate read 1918NoMo - which is clever I guess. The sticker read - No Curse, They just sucked for 86 years. That got a laugh and a honk from the car.
Spitzer's resignation speech contained a lot of "me's" and "I's" in it and very little about the constitutes he failed. Perhaps a confirming indicator of what many of already said about this guy's personality.
19 Days and counting until Opening Day.
