- I started missing David Cone in the announcer booth after a half an inning. Michael Kay is so boring - but we are being blessed with the sloooooooow looooow voice of Ken Singleton, and I'm all for announcers who aren't ADHD crack babies (Keith Hernadez) but at the same time, baseball is already boring... no need to make it worse.

- I forgot how much I hate the Blue Jays jerseys. This does not mean I hate the Blue Jays (if anything, I pity them and wish them the best of luck every year because Canadian baseball should live forever) or anything but I find the font they use for the numbers on their jerseys disgustingly ugly. Is that insane? Probably.

- This pitcher for the Blue Jays, number 60. is kind of gorgeous (Rob Rice? Ray?). Tall, lanky, awesome arm delivery -- pretty much everything I love. Lo and behind Singleton just pointed out to Kay that the pitcher looks a lot like a young AJ Burnett (which is a wink-wink-nod-nod thing that 'young AJ' really means "wild pitcher")
- Speaking of, I'm pissed as hell that I was at work when Doc pitched for the Phillies against the Yankees this week. Mmmm. The positive is that I'll probably see him more now that he's a Philly. The negative, is that he's a fucking Philly. =/

- To further prove why I hate (well dislike) Ken & Kay's Yankees hour(s), when talking about Adam Loewen, Ken couldn't think of Steve Ankiel's name. I mean, how can you not? His story is pretty much the story of pitcher to outfielder and. .... yeah. Further proof that even with the lisp, I could do better then most of these guys.

- Francisco Cervelli* was hit today during the game. And ended up with a concussion. AND HE WAS HIT WITH ONE IN NOVEMBER AND THE YANKEES ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO DO THINGS TO KEEP HIM GROUNDED. Oh Yankees. Oh the Memory Of Ryan Church, how you make me weep so. Thank god. Of course now Kay and Ken are talking about concussions and it's kind of ..... not totally correct, but it's a lot better then what Keith & Ron were saying a few years ago. Oh, I am weeping happy tears, you don't understand.

- And speaking of, the interviewer talked to Jorge during the game, and Jorge was in full 'I am a veteran and he will listen to me' mode, about how Francisco better tell the trainers when he gets the headaches "because he will get the headaches" and oh god <3. I mean this is freaking amazing. And while I don't want to hit the Mets when they are down (techinically they aren't down yet they've only played like 5 games so far I believe) but this is what a good veteran presence can get you and not dumb bullshitty politics things where because someone in the front office doesnt like a man, that they would do stupid things with him and his brains. /still angry.

- Also, Jose Molina is no longer a New Yorker (booo, I miss him so) - but he is playing for the Blue Jays now. And apparently he went and hugged Francisco after the hit and was talking to him. I told you there was a reason he is always my favorite Molina brother.

- Hmm. The David Wright Helmet Of Concussions will be mandatory in the minor leagues this season for post-concussions. We'll see how that goes. According to Kay, now people won't make fun of the helmet anymore. Yeah right.

* he's the backup catcher and I kind of have a crush on him. He's Italian and speaks a little bit of English - but you know how he learned English? By listening to Bon Jovi songs <33333333. I mean, yeah. That and the fact that he's cute in general = <3.

.............. Hahahahaha. That's like calling Kurt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Angle) Angle, Kirt Angel. But, yes, this means Ken Singleton called him Steve. Oy, all around.

I was freaking yesterday when Cervelli was hit. Not because I'm a fan (obviously lol) but because he was such a genuinely nice guy the time I had to take refuge from the rain in the Trenton dugout early on last season. He brought me a towel to dry off and (tried to) crack jokes about our Speidie race mascots. He's a good kid and I hope he ends up okay.

Also, it's Robert Ray.

Ah thanks. Because I think I have a new crush if he makes the team for the Blue Jays.

And hee that's awesome. Cervelli (or 'the Italian kid' as I call him) and Angel Pagan were probably my favorite non-Swisher non-Burnett Yankees last year.

I don't know if you remember but a few months back you mentioned you'd zip up your Stevie Richards pictures for me? I was just wondering if perhaps you still could? And if theres anyway I can repay or help you out then I'll surely try to do so.

Oh, shit! I'm sorry! I literally completely forgot. I'm about to take a nap (yes, at 6 PM, but I'm keeping the email to this post in my new email so that I'll hook up my external tonight and have it uploaded by tomorrow night. Again, I'm really sorry -- it's been a hectic couple of months =/

And I'm sorry - I had a major allergy attack today (I got to go to the ER~! It was thrilling!) so I will try and get it out to you this weekend. Again, really sorry that I'm so crappy with deadlines =/

Aw, I hope everything is better now or will be for you. Don't worry or stress yourself over it. Take your time, I don't mind at all. I appreciate it though. <3

Finally! The Rock has come back. (http://www.sendspace.com/file/8m933q) It's a .rar file if you don't know how to open that (it's easy with WinRar. If not, if you are more comfortable opening a .zip file, I can make a zip for you, you know to make up for the whole "it only took a year for me to upload these for you" =/!
