A Win On A Halladay

Hey everybody, Hope you all had a fun forth of July. I did, besides a near death experience with a Black Cat and a lighter, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but I think those thing need longer fuses. Anyway the Yankees had a fun day too.  Well Most of the Yankees did, Chien -Ming Wang gave up a home run in the sixth and then had to leave because he got hurt. Johnny Damon tied the game in the seventh inning with a 2 run blast off Roy Halladay. YAHOOOOOOO!!! Then came the bottom of the 12 where Jorge Posada got the game winning hit!

I’m not happy that we lost Chien – Ming, but I am not surprised ether. He’s been fragile throughout his career. I think its time for the Yankees to think TRADE DELINE: Its coming soon and I think we should get one more quality starter. We have Sabathia, Burnett, Peddite, Wang (injured), and sometimes Chamberlin. Now with Wang injured we need to get someone reliable, consistent, and who’s era is not over 20. Kinda like Curt Schilling…

Omaha Royals

Having a Hometown AAA Baseball Team is pretty cool. Omaha, Nebraska is home of the OMAHA ROYALS, AAA team for the Kansas City Royals. When I was little I thought that it was the Yankees farm team and that someday they would send down Derek Jeter, or Mike Mussina. Alas, I soon figured out that they where the minor league team of the Kansas City Royals. I still cheered for them and I still do. The Royals are thinking of moving out of Omaha to Canada or Texas. If they leave this means no more baseball in Omaha, unless the Yankees answer my plea and put even a single A or AA team here. Please if you would Like this to happen please write me about it. thanks
