Gullible

March 26, 2009

Gullible–adjective

easily deceived or cheated.

For those of you unfortunate enough to have known Herr Yellon a few years back you might recall Al’s unwavering support of the Tribune company line in all matters Cub. This was especially true when it came to Mark Prior and the never ending string of lies that MacPhail and his cronies were intent on feeding the average fan.  The favorite modes of deception were the team mouthpiece Tribune newspaper  and through quasi-corporate schills like Mr. Yellon. Al has long crowed about his “inside sources” and seems to genuinely believe that somebody at Trib Co gives a fuck about him and his blog. He has never questioned the information provided to him and therefore has long been a sounding board for the company line the Tribune wanted to broadcast to the masses. Back in the spring of 06 the company line they desperatley wanted to sell was that Mark Prior was behind on his pitching schedule again but not because of any arm injury. Rather it was because he had suffered from the flu in January and had never really recovered. Keep in mind this was going down in March and 99% of us have had the flu. It doesn’t take 2 months to get over the flu yet the team really thought that instead of acknowledging what was being widely reported which was that Prior had problems in his shoulder they would issue this laughable excuse and attack Will Carroll and wish it all away.  Eager to show his corporate masters that he was a loyal solider Al decided to attack Will Carroll’s(accurate) report in this post my favorite line was this

“So what? There is absolutely no evidence that he has any physical problems; doing the towel drill, which is a feature of Larry Rothschild’s regime, means absolutely nothing.”

A flu free Mark Prior went right out and had such a horrible spring he didn’t even make the major league team, was throwing his fastball in the mid 80’s and as we all know the inside of his shoulder looked like this truck

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fast forward to 2009 and the Cubs have another mega talented yet injury& flu prone starter in Rich Harden. This time the Cubs have been more open in admitting that Harden has a tear of some sort in his shoulder yet last week when Harden missed a scheduled start due to *you guessed it* illness the team admitted he might not be ready for opening day. And I thought groundhog day was over already.  Predictably this is the headline post at BCB  . Look familiar? It seems that Al is either unwilling to unable to look at this team critically and more than eager to accept whatever pablum Crane Kenney and Co throw at him. What could be his reward for failing to examine the team he blogs about for the sake of the thousands of readers of BCB? A Mike Fontenot interview or a sit down with Kenney himself. That’s the price Al set for his journalistic integrity and it speaks volumes about the man.

Now I’m off to make up some blue Kool-Aid and sent Harden a packet of Thera-Flu to heal that tear in his pitching shoulder. You Gotta Believe!

in posting but I just got word that the Al haters in my family will be doubling in about 9 months.

I must secure a new Al Yellon free future for my child. I shall re-double my efforts to Fire Al Yellon!


Blog Wars

March 13, 2009

Editor in Chief in Commander’s note- Cubbiejulie is not responsible. Someone at her blog is. The longer the person resonsible for this travesty hides in the shadows the worse this will be for everyone. I am so totally serious here guys, this is priority alpha.

 

It has come to my attention that some editor on a power trip over at League of Her Own has de-linked this illustrious blog out of loyalty to Yellon. Let me just say that all collaborators should be exposed and eShot. If I find out who is responsible for this atrocity I will reveal the traitor for the entire readership of FAY to see. The very thought of 3-6 moderately angry people should strike terror into the heart of whomever is responsible for this heinous tragedy. Until this coward comes forward or is caught I am upgrading FAYs alertness status to “Blackwatch Plaid” and will invoke a link embargo on LOHO if this matter is not resolved  soon.

 

You have 1 day.


Don’t Fuck With Al Yellon!

March 11, 2009

or you might get snotty comments like this

I never said your argument was unreasonable, nor did I say you aren’t entitled to your opinion.

You did say “stupid fans like you”. That’s inappropriate. You seem to deliberately want to provoke me and others. Knock it off.

Beating a Dead Horse

March 10, 2009

Yellon is on the Bradley warpath yet again  doing his best to stir up controversy with inflammatory headlines and tired innuendo. I really wish Al would just come out and admit that he hates blacks and will never cheer for a negro with any hint of a personality or attitude. Instead we get shite like this…

I’m really not sure what to make of this, and I want to try to be fair to Milton Bradley.-  No, you really don’t Al. You haven’t wanted or been fair to Bradley since the Cubs were first rumored to interested in him. You have gone well out of your way to bash the guy and stir up the lemmings that you control

In yesterday’s Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, writer Gil Lebreton said that Bradley, essentially, was jaking it at times last year:

 “My agent was saying that Jon Daniels was telling him, ‘There are days when he doesn’t want to play because of his health,’ ” Bradley said.

“Well, you can get a healthy guy to go out there and play 162 games, but he won’t do what I did in 120.”

As crudely self-serving as that sounds, Bradley is mostly right. His numbers last season were All-Star quality.

But that shouldn’t excuse the fact that Bradley was prone to sporadically calling in sick, including missing 10 of 11 games in early August as the Rangers lapsed from wild-card contenders to pretenders.

Plus, at the same time when Bradley was randomly removing himself from lineups, Michael Young was playing nearly every day despite having broken fingers on both hands.

Young never complained about Milton. That’s not Michael’s style. But his teammates certainly noticed.

When asked about that Sunday, Bradley gave an unsettling answer.

“If I’m being paid, and I’ve got the commitment to me that I give to them, you make more of an effort to be out there every day,” he said. 

So, in other words, you don’t play hard or play hurt unless there’s a financial commitment to you? In today’s Sun-Times, Greg Couch quotes the Star-Telegram article, compares Bradley to Luol Deng, and gets a little more elaboration from Milton:-  

Why do fans have this obsession with players wanting to play when they are injured. Who treats investments like this? Do you run your car well past its oil change date? Do you demand that your milk not expire because you want a milk that is scrappy and refused to quit? If not then why the fuck would you want a player that the Cubs have invested 30 million dollars into to run the risk of aggravating a small injury and missing precious playing time? If Milton Bradley needs a day off give it to him. If he feels sick or is hungover after winning the game the night before then give Gathright or Scrapmaster Johnson a start. TH ATS WHY YOU HAVE BACKUPS.  You would think that fans would want teams to protect their major investments at all costs but no, the Al Yellon style of Cub fan wants every player to play 162 games no matter what. 

If you’re in a situation like I am now,” Bradley said, talking about his three-year deal with the Cubs, “if they want me to go out there when I’m feeling a little banged up, I’ve got no problem doing that because they’ve made the commitment to me.” 

Well. I really, really do want to like Milton Bradley – No you don’t.

and want him to contribute positively to the Cubs, both in the clubhouse and on the field. I don’t give a shit if Bradley pisses everybody off in the clubhouse and takes a shit in Lou’s locker if the team is winning that’s all we should care about. There is no doubt that when he is healthy and has his head screwed on straight, he is a major talent who can carry a team. Basically Al feels that if the Cubs could just tap into the raw talent of the Negro and get past their me first personalities and head problems the team will be alright.


Plagiarism

March 3, 2009

Plagiarism Def- 

1. to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own

2. to use (another’s production) without crediting the source

Today over at Bleed Cubbie Blue Al took a break from his riveting “Guess this Cub players pubic mane”  series to write a post of original thought. Yellon has figured out how to fix the World Baseball Classic and wants you all to read about his “idea”. The only problem is that Dave Cameron from USS Mariner and Fangraphs came up with this idea and published it a week ago.  Since Al knows that 99.0% of his readership is either legally retarded or in 7th grade he knew he didn’t have to leave a link or even pass a hat tip to Cameron because nobody at BCB has ever heard of awesome sites like Fangraphs. Yellon had to feel real comfortable that he could rip off Cameron’s work and get away with it. Let’s take a look at some of the similarities shall we?  Al’s “work” will be in bold, Cameron’s will be italicized.

Here’s my idea. We have already seen that March, during spring training, isn’t a very good time. 

Ok, fair enough, Al isn’t the first to criticize Selig and Co. for having a tourney full of high impact games when players are usually golfing and stretching. Still, here is what Cameron had to say last week.

I know there’s no perfect time to have this tournament, but the middle of spring training simply doesn’t appear feasible.

So now that Al has established he hates the current WBC let’s get to the meat of his “idea”.

So once every three years, we’re going to replace the outmoded All-Star Game, which, even with Bud Selig’s silly “This Time It Counts” gimmick, has outlived its original purpose. Instead, we’ll turn that mid-July week into WBC Week 

As soon as I read this I knew Al had stolen all he wrote from this

So, here’s my suggestion. Cancel the All-Star Game, turn the three day break into a seven day break, and have a single elimination tournament that lasts a week. 

Wow, Al really has no shame. He stole another person’s idea, altered little to none of it and then had the gall to post it on his YAHOO SPORTS certified blog as his own. It looks like we can add some more qualities to Al’s present list of traits, racist,jackass, pervert, coward and now thief. I guess that’s why Al got the SB nation blog. From the bottom of FAY’s heart we would like to extend Mr. Yellon and Bleed Cubbie Blue the sincerest of Fuck You’s.

WTF man? Not being content to hate darkies Al now has expanded his racist tentacles into the Latino community.  It has long been rumored that Yellon would mutter “lazy bean eater” under his breath while Aramis Ramirez rounded the bases after another game winning HR or that Al is very fond of jerking off to this picture usdec12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but until today we have never seen such a direct public  smear on the Hispanic people. It seems that 5 Latino’s are too much for Al to accept on his beloved Cubs team. That we should find out that Al’s bigotry extends into a new racial category is no surprise. Yet, let me take this minute to highlight just how stupid and shortsighted this policy is. Al is a notorious houndog for companionship  yet his racial hatreds coupled with his personality and severe baldness dramatically limit his potential hook up’s.  Al has boxed himself into only going after women just like him, fat, hairy in the wrong places and overall monster-ish.  Based on CCD’s description FAY’s visual engineers have provided a good estimate of the typical lady Al pursues which I will show further down in this post. By eliminating Latina women from his potential mate list Al is losing the chance to charm or in his case drug/molest our beautiful ladies from south of the border.  I on the other hand, refuse to discriminate because good vagina is good vagina, that’s why I go home with Latina’s like this

And Al gets bad touched by creatures like the one CCD described
