Game 5 for Rangers and Rays means Price and Lee won’t pitch 3 games or start Game 1 versus Yankees.
a note to gardenhire. i might yank the starter after 4. he is basically getting hit hard each time. down 2-0 in the series cant take cha …
i was right to take him out. 2 runs and no outs later.
reality is i would almost rather have phil go out there now than an extra run. long time to sit to sit on the bench.
hughes on fire. a very efficient 32 pitches after 3 innings. 4 Ks.
got to give to jeter. he keeps hitting in this series and it becomes that much easier to give him his 15-20 million next year.
jeter, mo, pettite, sabathia, arod, cano order of loudest cheers. pavano only twin to ellicit reaction.
who is throwing first pitch? reggie,yogi, tino? dark house is homer bush.
berra for a strike.
It’s been real. Thanks! http://twitpic.com/2vasz2

Someone give these announcers some caffeine, you would have thought this was an August game against Baltimore, not game 1 of the ALDS
Culinary Catch Up: Ma Peche - Revisited
Sorry David but Ben and Mo are right. The midtown location is not equal to that of it’s downtown brethren. That’s ok…nothing gets better north of 14th street. Sadly, my second lunch visit to Ma Peche didn’t turn out as well as the first. This time I tried to keep with a pork theme: Summer Rolls pork with lettuce and peanuts, hoisin Pork Ribs (Newman’s Farm, MO) thai...
pork katsu-don at sobaya and a little coltrane in the background. life can be good.
Culinary Catch Up: Soba-ya
Living in the East Village I am fortunate to be so close to 9th street. I feel like that strert should have a name like Little Japan or something. While not the exclusive location of all things Japanese, there is an overabundance of Japanese restaurants between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. You know an Asian restaurant is quality when the percentage of non-Asians dining there is below 10%. You know you...
Culinary Catch Up: Sunday Brunch
I love Sunday brunch. Unless you are brunching north of 14th street, it’s relatively easy to wake up before the hungover masses start the trek to Pastis, Balthazar and even Momofuku Noodle Bar to add an additional 25 minutes to your table wait. Years ago, all I needed was egg whites, a few sections of the NY Times (Week in Review, Sports, Business and the Front Section) and a companion who...
just grilled 2 36 oz lobel porterhouses! happy labor day.
Culinary Catch Up: Dave's Grill (Montauk)
It’s true. Dave knows what he is doing. Start hitting redial at 4:15 and perhaps by 4:22 you may get through. Quick tip, try to get a party 4-5 or more otherwise you will be competing with all the other Hampton wannabes trying to have their first meal at Dave’s. All I can say is that I went two days in a row and ordered the exact same meal. My advice is pretty simple, find a dish...
the eggs norweigan at balthazar is one of my top 3 breakfasts in city
Culinary Catch Up: Maialino
What can I say other than thank god it’s only 7 blocks away. Great space, great food and great location. Nestled within the Gramercy Park Hotel, Danny Meyer continues to supply New York with wonderful, heart warming, stomach satisfying food. Here’s how I ordered: Carciofini Fritti fried artichokes & anchovy bread sauce Insalata Misticanza spring lettuces, lemon & olive oil...
Culinary Catch Up: Ssam Bar
I always love Ssam Bar. Aside from the fact it’s a block away, it’s a only a block away. There is usually a routine at Ssam Bar, and it goes something like this: Pork buns Cured Hamachi edamame, horseradish, pea leaves Edward’s Wigwam Country Ham Spicy Pork Sausage & Rice Cakes chinese broccoli, crispy shallots Bev Eggleston’s Pork Shoulder Steak golden raisin, miso, spinach ...
I just spent over an hour and a half going only 5 blocks because of Obama’s vist. The GOP just got my vote.
An arrogant Don Draper is a fun Don Draper. Mad Men looks primed for a great season.
The Breslin: A Pig's Foot
What can I say, I love a good pig’s foot. Not more than a week after having some pig ear at Ssam Bar, I waddled over to the Ace Hotel to try the Breslin’s famous pig foot. It truly is an experience. The skin, sauce and texture of the meat made for a unique and almost holiday like experience. I recommend highly around Christmas time. Additionally, don’t pass up the steamed...
If I had a last meal, it would be fried chicken. Recently, I have witnessed the decline of Blue Ribbon’s fried chicken and it makes me want to cry. Although their chicken is still accompanied by a side of honey (the greatest complement to chicken ever!) the crispiness and overall saltiness is not what it once was. For some great alternatives, try the following link. ...
Culinary Catch Up: Bucks in Woodside, CA
Just got back from Northern California. Not much to note from a culinary perspective except for my breakfast at Bucks Restaurant in Woodside (www.buckswoodside.com). Imagine 21 Club but kitschy and instead of a bunch of businessmen in suits sitting around drinking whiskeys there are software engineers in jeans lounging in booths drinking tea as they plot the next Google. Make sure to check it...
Yankee Stadium - Legends Style
I finally had my first opportunity to sit in the Legends Section of Yankee Stadium. I was invited to pay homage to Minetta Tavern’s one night only contribution to the Legend’s Restaurant. No readers…Siegalito was not invited, but it does help to be friends with a food blogger that was (www.nbcnewyork.com/feast)… thanks Ben. It was unreal. After entering through a...
