Morning Bits: Girardi, Hughes, C.C. vs Shields and more…

Hope many of you are enjoying a nice day off from work as summer ends.   The playoff push is getting interesting as the Yankee continue to struggle.  An important next two series begins today with Tampa and after them will be at Baltimore.  A-Rod should be back in the lineup today.  Hopefully that helps the lineup.

Enjoy the day and now for some links.  Enjoy!

  1. ode to derek jeter

    I’ve been swinging these bats so long
    Singin’ the same old song
    I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway

    Where hustle’s the name of the game
    And nice guys get washed away
    Like the snow and the rain

    There’s been a load of compromisin’
    On the road to my horizon
    But I’m gonna be where the lights are shinin’ on me

    Like a new york yankee
    Riding out at home plate in a star-spangled baseball game

    Like a new york yankee
    Singing cards and bats for people I don’t even know
    And offers comin’ over the phone

    Well, I really don’t mind the game
    And a smile can hide all the pain
    But you’re down when you’re ridin’ the 7 train taking the long way

    And I dream of the plays I’ll make
    With a subway token
    And taking my pitches at the plate

    There’ll be a load of compromisin’
    On the road to my horizon
    But I’m gonna be where the lights are shinin’ on me

    Like a new york yankee
    Getting hits at home plate in a star-spangled baseball game

    new york yankee
    signing cards and bats for people I don’t even know
    And offers comin’ over the phone

    Like a new york yankee
    Riding out at home plate in a star-spangled baseball game

    new york yankee
    signing cards and bats for people I don’t even know

  2. Jim – great song about the best SS of all time!

      Why do you want Glen Campbell to manage the Yankees? Is he on WPIX?

      I could see him maybe playing the National anthemn or god bless America. Or even riding a mounted police horse like Wayne Boggs….but manage?
