I have to be honest, I think the Rays are a better team than the Yanks

Posted in Yankees on August 3, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

And I’m not saying this because the Rays are on fire right now and the Yanks are fuck’n awful. When you compare the two teams on paper, the Yankees obviously have a better squad. But the Rays have had that spark all season. They’re young, talented, and definitely not afraid of any team in this league. They have a solid young pitching staff with Shields, Price, and Garza. With Upton, Crawford and Longoria as 1,2, and 3 in the lineup, this team is deadly. Now of course I believe the Yankees are great this season. CC should win 20 games, Cano is having a career year, and the team looks to be headed for another 95+ win season. I’m just saying that it’s definitely not a shoo-in to pick the Yanks in the World Series this season. Balfour, Choate (yes, Randy Choate) and Soriano is a solid bullpen and I’d take any of those guys over Joba, Gaudin, and Kerry Wood any day. So am I upset that the Yanks are now 2nd place in the AL East? Hell yes. Does it surprise me that the Rays took over the best record in baseball? Absolutely not.

Gotta admit, Tampa Bay has definitely come a long way since their inaugural ’98 season:


Ha! Well DeSean Jackson is Fucked!!!

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been carted off the field with a back injury during an afternoon practice at training camp. The Eagles’ leading receiver caught a pass Saturday and stumbled to the ground, then needed help to the sidelines. Moments later, a cart came and took him to the workout facility. Team officials said Jackson is still being evaluated by the medical staff.

Not good news for the Eagles. Yea I know everyone has been saying that the injury is that serious. But the Eagles are practicing as we speak and Jackson is not on the field. When DeSean performed his douchebag dance moves in endzones last season, I knew that if he ever lost a step, he would be absolutely fucked. Let’s face it- DeSean tore up every defensive back in the NFL with the exception of Terrence Newman. If his back is hurting come early September and isn’t able to move the same as well as he did in ’09, he will get demolished. I can see it now – Jackson catching a pass in the middle of the field, then all of a sudden Aaron Ross hits him below the knee. Done. Finished. That’s what happens when you trash talk and you’re a wide receiver. The minute you lose a step, you get killed. Look at Irvin back in ’98 at the Vet. The dude got a little old and couldn’t run like he used to. Next thing you know, he’s on a stretcher. Game over. That’s why guys like Amani Toomer, Chris Carter, and Jerry Rice lasted for such a long time. They kept their mouths’ shut and did their job.  Sadly, DeSean doesn’t play by those rules. Therefore, he is fucked. It’s really too bad given the fact he’s such a classy dude. Just check out how humble the guy is. What a true role model:

The New Yankee Stadium Sucks

Posted in Yankees on August 2, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

I’ve had enough with this place. This is the most overpriced piece of shit stadium of all-time. Last year, I was a fan of the new stadium. Even though it was completely different and lacked the aura of the old ballpark, they sold the fabulous $15 bleacher seats. This allowed real fans who couldn’t pay over $200 for a ticket to watch out beloved team. But of course, this year they had to bump up the bleacher seats to 40 FUCKING DOLLARS. You kiddin’ me! Ever since the old ballpark was torn down, fans at the new park have absolutely sucked. People now come to Yankees games not for baseball, but for the fuck’n “stadium experience.” Who cares about the experience??  Put the Yanks on Randalls Island where the ballfields are covered with hypaodermic needles and trash everywhere. Don’t care. I’d watch them. In the old stadium, the place was filled with the blue collar old-school Yankee fans who bled Yankee baseball. Now you have the rich douchebag kids with their skank girlfriends combined with the uncaring business executives. Worst combination ever.  So for the rest of the summer, I will continue stay far away from this snotty, money-grabbing stadium and continue to watch my Yanks at home with Ken Singleton and Paul O’Neill.

On a side note, Rays are now a game back of the Yanks. Gotta get back on track after a disappointing weekend. With the exception of this Robbie Cano home run, the Yanks flat-out sucked.

Philly Fan Acts Like a D-Bag…Anyone Surprised?

(CBS News) A 21-year-old New Jersey man was sentenced to jail Friday for vomiting on another spectator and his 11-year-old daughter in the stands at a Philadelphia Phillies game. Matthew Clemmens, of Cherry Hill, N.J., pleaded guilty in May to charges of assault, harassment and disorderly conduct and was sentenced to one to three months in jail, two years of probation and 50 hours of community service. The maximum penalty was two years in jail. Clemmens admitted he stuck his fingers down his throat and vomited on Vangelo, an off-duty Easton police captain, and one of Vangelo’s daughters at a Phillies-Nationals game on April 14 at Citizens Bank Park. Clemmens and his friend were spilling beer, cursing and heckling Vangelo and his daughters from the time they arrived at their seats. The police captain’s 15-year-old daughter asked the pair to stop the profanity, and Vangelo complained to security that Clemmens’ friend was spitting, with some of it hitting his younger daughter.  After the friend was ejected, Clemmens was sitting alone behind the Vangelos when he answered his cell phone and said: “I need to do what I need to do. I’m going to get sick,” the prosecutor said.

Ever since I started this blog a half a year ago, I’ve been silent about my feelings toward Philadelphia sports. I wasn’t going to come out of the blue and just start bashing Philly for no good reason. I wasn’t going to be a sore loser and cry about the Eagles pounding the Giants for the past two years. The Eagles have been a flat out a better team in ’08 and ’09. Truth is, I really feel bad for them. Even when I was at the Giants-Eagles game last December in the Meadowlands and had Philly fans laugh in my face all game, I still felt sympathy for them. Face it – Philadelphia teams suck! All of them. And don’t give me that “oh the Phillies have been good lately” bullshit. Yanks destroyed them last year.

But now I have my Philly fan story!!! This dude is the definition of Philadelphia sports. If it was up to me, I would give this guy three years in prison. This action alone has probably psychologically fucked up the 11-year old girl.  Intentionally vomiting on someone?? C’mon! A guy with these kind of sick mind should seriously not walk on this earth for a little while. I can’t believe he only gets three months. What’s even more sick about it was that he puked on a fellow Phillies fan! Not even an fan of the opposing team! That makes this situation even more fucked up. At least with this story, Philadelphia sports can continue to keep their already fabulous reputation.
