Make sure you’ve got some ice ready, Baltimore

Well, the Orioles are up in the Bronx trying to avoid the sweep that will inevitably take place tonight, but we have a side story that may prove to be more interesting that the final score of the game. That is, if it pans out like we want it to.

Joba “Bush League” Chamberlain is the starting pitcher tonight, and Aubrey “The Beast” Huff is in the lineup. If you don’t remember, the last time Joba pitched against the Orioles, Huff took him deep and then threw a fist pump right in his face as he rounded first and then again at home. Joba said something to the extent of “he can do whatever he wants, he hit a home run off of me”. That was in Camden yards. Now they’re in Yankee Stadium. We’ll see if Joba really meant what he said or if he was just a pansy/scared to retaliate in the Orioles home park. The option of him actually being that mature and humble does not exist.

I personally think that he is going to throw at Huff’s head and then act like he didn’t mean it and that “the ball got away”, but then again, it’s become standard fare for the umps to warn both sides before a Joba start, so he risks getting tossed early in the game if he really does in fact let the ball get away. Tough shit, though, that’s what you get for being a headhunter. Hopefully, if Joba throws at Huff or one of the Orioles, they decide to sack up and go after him, as we watch him scurry off the mound and into center field like a scared little chihuahua. Tune in and see, bitches.

    For real? There more were probably more Yankees fans in Camden Yards than will be at the game tonight.

    Did you mean there were more Yankee fans at Camden Yards than there will be Yankee fans at Yankee Stadium or that there were more Yankee fans at Camden that total fans at Yankee Stadium tonight? Stop drinking at work.

    ummm, I didn’t think it was that confusing, either way makes my point.

    Any Yankees or Red Sox games at either Baltimore or DC has a majority of visiting fans. Granted they are all likely bandwagon and own pink versions of their team hats, but still. It doesn’t present an atmosphere that is likely to intimidate any visiting pitcher.

    That and the Yankees are having a difficult time selling tickets to their home games.

    They’re not having a hard time selling tickets in general, just tickets to their legends boxes that are right behind home plate, the most visible seats on the park. Probably because they’re like 1,500 bucks a game.
