Saturday 10/06 (Very) Quickie: Bugs!

Fans of bug puns, unite! That Yankees-Indians Game 2 was one of the weirdest in recent postseason history. Obviously, the bugs were the THE story, but it was the WAY they influenced the game:

They completely disrupted Yankees super-rookie reliever Joba Chamberlain, who was supposed to be their secret weapon this fall, not blowing leads (and games). I'm no Yankees fan, but I blame the bugs over Chamberlain. (Sure, in theory you want him to shake it off and do his thing, but I'm not sure ANY pitcher - relief or otherwise - could have ignored the swarm.) And now the Yanks are in an 0-2 hole going back to New York.

Oh, and A-Rod (0-4, 3Ks): Yikes.

Meanwhile: MANNY! ('Nuff said.)
