"Candidate For MVP(Or Tim's Petition For Sainthood-Ditto, Miller & Morgan)For Derek Jeter(All You Shills Including Kay, Shut Up, Thanks)"

All of last weekend, during Yankees-Red Sox @ a giant toilet in The Bronx, various media pundits, including the “Master Of The Obvious Observation”, one Tim Mc Carver of FOX Sports, the talk of naming one Derek Sanderson Jeter, Yankees Shortstop, known as “Captain Intangibles”, was in & on the air. Tim was his usual blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, which is his forte, which is tiresome. It could be a Papal Election &, even there, Tim would manage to get in 17 mentions of Derek Jeter.
The “Gang of Two” on ESPN, Jon Miller & Joe Morgan, couldn’t get the 1st names of Sox Players correct, but all that one heard about was Dear, Darling Derek Jeter. What was FORGOTTEN was that the Red Sox took 3 out of 4 Games from the Yankees, causing the huge # of October “Arrivistas” who came to the South Bronx, looking for a celebration of the Yankees 9th Straight East Crown, & being sent home without supper, instead. It couldn’t happen to nicer “Fans”, who believe that they have a sense of entitlement, unseen anywhere, in modern times.
Did anyone notice in this year’s All Star Game, that when Alex Rodriguez fielded a ball & almost threw it away,which 1st Baseman saved that throw from landing in the stands, to become an unexpected All Star Game Souvenir?
Answer is David “Big Papi” Ortiz, but I don’t think that the pundits noticed. David does play a good 1st base, but his forte is as a Designated Hitter, which has been a position in the American League since 1972, if any pundit has noticed. His RBI totals also include Game Winning Hits, but that isn’t what’s really looked at by Baseball Writers.
You see, David is NOT a National Commercial Spokesman for a major product. Derek Jeter has a Cologne called “Driven”, while Alex Rodriguez is a major spokesman for Pepsi.
What I’m afraid of, is that the Most Valuable Player Award, is just a ploy for what the sponsors want, in order to target sales in major media markets. Sex Appeal sells. It isn’t about achievement anymore.

Ratings ratings ratings. As always, you are on the ball. Michael, have a great Sunday........a win in Toronto will diminish the chance of a third place finish. Diminish....how 'bout extinguish. That's what another win tomorrow will do. First things first. You take care. Love your stuff.

WMP sabatoged any chance we had of winning. He is a liability bigtime, and he and the 2007 rightfield should not be a part of each other.

Haha love the WMP joke, Michael. Yeah, he definitely has a lot to learn out there, he better work on keeping his eye on the ball this winter because it appears that doing that is difficult for him.

That was a "Seinfeld" Line, but that really happened as a Yankees Trade.
