Now let's discuss yesterday's debacle.
The afternoon game began with an 89-minute rain delay.
In the top of the 4th inning, the scoreboard read 7-1...A's over the Yankees.
It was still raining.
So, you KNOW a lot of the Yankees' douchebag fans headed home because the weather sucked and, apparently, their beloved team was about to get swept by the A's.
The Yankees ended-up winning 22-9.
The Oakland A's pitchers were brutal!
Oakland hurlers gave-up 13 walks! This provided Yankees' batters the opportunity to go the plate 16 times with the bases loaded!!
What do you think happens when a leading MLB franchise gets 16 at-bats with ducks-on-the-pond?
THE YANKEES BECAME THE FIRST TEAM IN MAJOR LEAGUE HISTORY TO HIT THREE GRAND SALAMIS IN A GAME!!!!
Robinson Cano, Russell Martin and Curtis Granderson all hit grand slams.
Cano and Granderson each had 5 RBIs. Martin had 6.
Jim Thome is going back to Cleveland, where he started hitting dingers
20 years ago.
Thome waived his no-trade clause, which allowed the Minnesota Twins to send him to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later.
In the Yankees' 22-9 schlacking of the A's, Derek Jeter came to bat 4 times with the bags juiced. He grounded out twice, struck-out and walked...and, according to PEOPLE, after dating for 3 years - Jeter and Minka Kelly have split!
Man, that's a bad day...
