Oh well, guess Joe's lineup tinkering didn't work out today. After his typical shaky first inning when he was clearly too jacked up because he was pitching in Cali again, CC was magic. But the Yanks couldn't muster enough offense off Dallas Braden to pick CC up. I knew Joe messing with the lineup today was a bad idea.
Speaking of Dallas, somebody tell this kid to chill out. Screaming at The Horse because he walked across the mound?
“I don’t care if I’m Cy Young or the 25th man on the roster, if I’ve got the ball in my hand and I’m on that mound, that’s my mound…. He ran across the pitcher’s mound foot on my rubber. No, not happening. We’re not the door mat anymore.”- Braden after the game.
Dude, it wasn't like you were going into your windup. The fucking play was dead!! And then to talk about how hard you throw and what you may or may not do the next time these 2 teams meet? It's shit talking like that that will get your teeth kicked in by The Horse next time. And then you won't even have to worry about who's walking on your mound because you'll be laying in the ICU.
P.S.- Calm down with the "We're not the door mat anymore" schtick, bro. Look around you. You play for the biggest penny pincher in baseball. The Oakland A's exist to basically be every other team's farm system. They horde good young talent and then trade it off for more good young talent when it gets too expensive. Just calm down with the chest pounding, pitch decent over the next couple years and enjoy the new contract you get from some different team in free agency.
