There is so much to say about last night’s Wild Card game against the the Cleveland Indians and their Cy Young contender Shane Bieber. The Yankees came alive getting seven hits including an Aaron Judge and Gleyber Torres home run, the first two home runs Bieber has given up at home all 2020. Cole game out hot with 13 strikeouts and all seemed well in Yankee universe except for one thing…. that lisp.
I know it sounds ridiculous to be talking about this after a 13-3 win in the postseason, but after that game I feel pretty damn good about the rest of this series so why not say what everyone is thinking.
I just cant stand A-Rod. I can’t stand the sound of his voice and I really can’t stand the things he says and I know for a fact I’m not alone. Have you scrolled through twitter anytime A-Rod is announcing a game? I’m not even talking just Yankee games. It’s not friendly.
I could go on forever with the complaints. I don’t even have to actually write this article, tweets could easily tell this story for me.
I’m so excited for the rest of this postseason. Yesterday’s game really woke me up. I wasn’t feeling good going into Cleveland. The Bieber hype absolutely got to my head and the mention of midges was actually driving me crazy. But the absolutely dominate performance made me feel like this is a team that could do something big, something I wasn’t feeling at the end of the regular season.
The only thing left to worry about is how I’m going to get through A-Rod’s completely obnoxious announcing. Do you think muting ESPN and listening to John and Suzyn would work?
