"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

The Headbanger

Mike Pelfry pitched better than Phil Hughes and the Mets got key outs when they needed them most. The Yanks staged rallies in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings but they couldn’t get over the hump as the Mets survived for a 5-3 win. Yanks first three batters went hitless and the Mets fans will rule the roost on the 7 train back into Manhattan. Most frustrating, for sure.

3 for 14 with RISP. 13 men left on base. Wow -- that's pretty awful.

What a bad break that when the pitching settles in, esp the bullpen, the offense fizzles. It's ridiculous. A lot of folks are calling for Gritner to move down the lineup. Maybe a swap with Swisher? Sounds reasonable.

i just got home from the game. 7 train was actually pretty quiet - now the staris out of the park not so much.
obviously not much done with risp tonight. hughes was catching way too much of the plate . semi exciting game because it seemed like a lot was going on, but a lot of almosts.

that was my first time at citi - i had seats in the 500 tier but felt like i could still see the action well. i liked the shea bridge since it links the lf and rf side of the park. however the mini mall/amusement park behinf cf is just way too much. it is supposed to be a god damn baseball stadium.

Right now, the Yankees simply do not have a good offense. Jeter has been awful for a month, Tex is pressing, Gardner is coming back down to Earth and the bottom of the lineup has been dreadful. The offense is basically Arod and Cano with support from Swisher and Cervelli. Meanwhile, the pitching has hit a lull. With no depth, there is nothing the Yankees can really do now but hope they don't fall too far behind over the next 2-3 weeks.

Also, when Granderson come back, Randy Winn should be DFA'ed. He is done.

Nice pics.

I like the way you caught the baseball as a white streak in mid-flight. That photo looks almost like a painting.

Nick Johnson came into the bar across the street from my apartment last night, arm in a sling, to watch a few innings with a buddy of his. Nice guy...he left in one piece.

[5] No arm strain from lifting 12 oz? It's a miracle.

Rubber game today. Just win another series.

[5] Really? Wow, how fucking cool is that! Did you talk to him? I mean, I guess he's not going to be inclined to chat about his teammates and whatnot, but God, how cool to watch a Yankee game with a fucking Yankee!

[7] I know it was pretty cool, we did a legit double take as he walked in. People didn't wanna really bother him, its a laid back neighborhood place and he obviously just wanted to grab a drink and hang out for a little bit. But everytime the Yanks would go down in order yet again we'd turn to his table and give him a good natured "Nick, wtf?!" and he would just laugh and shrug his shoulders.

Theres a douchey "lounge" next door to the bar and all these girls all done up for Saturday night kept walking past to go in there, my buddy turns to me and goes "do you think they'd still be going there instead of here if they knew that there was a millionaire at the back table?"
