for once, i am at a loss for words and topics. i am physically drained from all the moving i've done this past week. boxing up stuff, boxing up more stuff, and carrying some stuff to the garbage. it seemed to never end, and then today, when it was supposed to pour all day, it didn't really rain so i finished the move relatively easy - with the help of rene ruiz - my trusty assistant.
now all that's left to do is unpack everything. and believe me, i plan on getting rid of a fair amount of stuff. it's a mess in there right now and poor nathan probably feels like he's trapped in a cave, but soon enough it'll start to look like something.
bob's discount furniture screwed us. they were supposed to send a certificate of insurance to the new building and never did. yada yada yada. i called, complained (to put it lightly) and they give me $75 store credit. i wanted nothing to do with a store credit, so i had them take the money off my order. jackasses.
time for bullpen city. game this saturday at njit. let's see how this one goes. last weekend wasn't all rainbows and lollipops. we beat pace 8-7 in 17 innings thanks to a 5 run burst in the 17th when we put the starters back in. time for some of these newcomers to make a move and step up. some hustle in practice often leads to hustle in games. that's the sad part, a lot of these guys don't hustle. it's the easiest thing to do. drives me nuts.
yankees clinched a postseason birth for i think the 15th time in 16 years. they still trail the rays by half a game in the east so hopefully they can finish off the job and take home another pennant. the rays finish with two games at the lowly royals while the yankees take the trip up the mass pike for a showdown with the hated red sox. c.c. isn't scheduled to pitch so hopefully the offense (if they all aren't resting) can make up for what they lack on the mound. it's sad to see how bad the starting pitching drops off after c.c.
anyway, one-way ticket to bullpen city.
