Hazy, too. Good day for a picnic or a baseball game…

andy looks like a fucking milk man in that hat.
Don't like the commemorative caps on the Yankees.
Way to work the count to make sure the rest of the team gets a look at this new pitcher's arsenal ...
Nice to have Grandy back
does o'neill realize this pitcher is rh?
Oh goodie, a "productive out"
 Germans? Pearl Harbor?
nice easy swing - very nice.
Arod! like this start.
Beautious, Alex, BEAUTIOUS.
Dude, "Yes Mo" is wack.
oh robbie - you trying to one-up po since you know he'll be back soon?
Robbie...determined to screw that up. LOL
Well, that was ugly as Hell.
damn that was quick.
so I gather that robbie was thrown out at second from gameday trying to advance after the error. what exactly happened though?
another rbi for hinske. i wish we kept him as a bench player. he's doing really well here in rainlanta...
way to fuck up the saying, suzyn.
 shelley duncan was backing up the play - threw to 3rd to try and get arod, had no play on arod so they quickly threw to 2b to get cano
Terrible, terrible call by C.B. Bucknor.
go fuck yourself cb bucknor - you really suck
Thats one of the worst calls you'll see.
jesus mk this story is not so important you have to keep going back to it.
Nice job there Andy, screw Bucknor.
 wasn't even - cano was on the bag with the ball.
 Its not even interesting.
yeah yanks! woo hoo! let's go!
 what he be talking about?
 Bucknor ruled Cano was pulled off the bag at second, but it wasn't even close, Cano was firmly, OBVIOUSLY on the bag when he caught the ball.
sterling said the out at first went 5-4-2. TWO? was brains covering 1B?
 andy, his kids, wanting to be with his kids, retirement
 Andy Pettitte wants to watch his son play baseball.
It took him like 8 minutes to say that
 ok. thanks again! :)
That does sound ridiculously boring. I mean, good for Andy liking his kids and all but...
 and thanks to you too!
(I appreciate word press' ability to teach me patience)
Man, Buckner is a joke out there...
Little SCRAP IRON CERVELLI!!!
nice ab frankie b.
how the hell was that a strike?
nice slappy hit.
fuck em up, Brett. Way to go, boy.
Run, Frankie, Run!
Nicely done, Gritner!
according to gameday gardner has 4 balls but hasn't walked yet.
that's gunna leave a mark. Fucking A.
there's the single. Did Jetes get hit? oh now i see it damn
mk is an extra fucktard mode today.
where'd hit him? i hope not the wrist/hand again...
 right under the ass - basically his hamstring.
 back o the knee, according to suzyn.
thanks, ms. o
not a bad pitch to hit, there...
Aie, good pitch, Hoss. Fug.
damn - would have been nice for some score trucking.
Score Truck is just in traffic, it'll get here.
 it might still be at the beach
All weekend, I've been waiting for the Yankees to just blow the Indians out of the water.
I had Sterling for most of the first third of the game. I actually liked it, I was in the right mood.
Gritner will never make it in the big leagues.
Good pitch-out call.
Wow, the first three innings lulled almost all the banterers to sleep. Or more likely most people have better things to do... (I'll be outdoors cooking soon, myself.)
I believe the Score Truck is getting ready to pull into the parking lot ...
nice pitchin by Andy.
72) I'm doing stuff around the house so only in and out here on the comments. Got the windows wide open, good breeze, nice lazy day to catch up on stuff...
 Afternoon all, just had a nice 1.5 hour nap. Still exhausted from my Aikido seminar this past weekend.
  Good good good good. Nap and lazy drifting around the house, that's what Memorial Day is all about. Oh, beside the veterans and stuff.
 wilker has memorial day post up.
no need for a nap when you sleep til 1pm! : )
 Hey! Morning, bud.
Very efficient inning for Andy. Seven pitches, and he got a K!
We've had a lot of scary flies today, but none of them has landed. Oh, Swisher did belt a good one earlier. But a lot have been caught.
I think the Yankees offense has taken the day off too. The Indians starting staff must be the best in the league because this lineup hasn't been able to touch it. It's a good thing the Indians bullpen is just as bad as the Yankees.
 it's time for my morning cereal! be back in a bit...
That has to be the shortest inning we've seen in a long time.
So Talbot gets a 5-pitch inning. That was ridiculous.
Swisher was great last year, and even better this year.
Who did we have to give up for him again?
The teams have combined for 19 runs in the seventh inning during this series. Andy escaped his end, so hopefully the Yankees continue the trend in the bottom half.
 wilson betemit. (i think...)
i'm a swish fan!
 On the other hand, whoever leads at the end of the sixth loses. So let's hope they don't continue that trend.
Talk about perfect timing...God Bless America follows the moment of remembrance as if it was planned that way. That would help explain some of these quick ABs.
 The Yankees had the lead in the sixth on Friday, so we are safe there.
That was really nice.
I don't like listening to Kate Smith every game, and think it is losing it's meaning, but that was a very moving version.
 Don't forget the immortal Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez ...
The guy is just an AAAA player.
 He might be AAAAA. (He runs on really, really small batteries.)
This is a direct cut and paste from Steve at WasWatching, but I though it was interesting.
Derek Jeter’s 2010 season can really be divided into three parts so far:
First 23 games: .333/.367/.510
Next 16 games: .169/.234/.211
Last 9 games: .415/.455/.585
Now that defines streaky
Very good throw but it was NOT a good jump.
Hmmm, that didn't go so well ...
League average offensive outfielders who can't steal bases really shouldn't be playing every day.
I know stealing is exciting, but I do wish Gritner would do less of it. I'd be happy if he picked spots where he absolutely definitely could swipe one (like against Victor Martinez, say), and stole only half as many.
With no out and the top of the order up, as much as we love to see Brett Run Brett, I'm not sure it's a smart play.
Ruh roh, Indians announcers talking about Brett talking with the trainer -- he might be injured.
And now Derek too?
 Is he going on his own... or per Girardi?
 Good question.
I assume it's manager's decision, but that Joe often gives him the green light.
 Gardner looked like he hooked his thumb on the slide into 2B.
Jeter was limping to first, probably because of the ball that hit him in the back of the leg.
 maybe caught a spike, supposedly there was some bleeding that the trainer was looking at/treating.
 Girardi has said he has the green light, but he will put the stop sign on in certain spots.
Nice to see Grandy staying on LHPs since he's come back up.
Jeter left with "tightness in his left hamstring" (same one that was hit earlier)
Yes, an IBB, thank you. Free base runner! More pressure on your crappy pitcher!
Wait, Perez for Perez. Is that legal?
Ok Alex, time to break open the game.
Sounds like minor things for Derek & Brett.
The King of the Slam!
The curse of the 7th strikes again!
Rally killing grand slam.
I am sooooooo tired of these gratuitious, stat-padding ABs.
Didn't Teix get an IBB B4 ARod's last granny?
Now that was some bad managing.
BACK TO BACK!!!
 is that his 20th?
Yeah,  was good.
Anything you can do I can do better....
la la la...la la la....la la la lala.
Now 24 runs have been scored in the 7th inning...including at least a four run half inning in each game.
oh, hell YEAH!!!
 I think so, now that you mention it.
So this will cut down on the IBBs issued to Teix, right? But only by managers who pay attention.
Fuckin Girardi. He should have had ARod squeeze.
WHERE'S JOE MADDON???
 Yup. 3 behind Gehrig. I'm of two minds of someone breaking that record. Kinda like that Lou is still #1, but if it gets broken, best to keep it in pinstripes -- plus it means more Yankee runs.
 Yep...#20, one behind Manny and three behind the Iron Horse for most all time.
Thee Scortruck arriveth...
 Just as the Cleveland bullpen showed up...how convenient.
That Girardi is a great manager when Arod and Tex hit multi-run bombs.
He made be a bit one dimensional, but I like Miranda.
i just saw J. Wright pitching for the Indians and had terrible flashbacks to Jaret - when he was good against us for the Tribe and horrible for us. : /
 Everybody wants to play baseball! So, things happen!
 When he stays out of the way, he's less bad, yes.
At least a productive out.
I wonder if we will ever see Brains, Jesus and Romine on the team together.
The Sox are not playing today. With as few day games as there are, you would think everyone would play on a day when the kids don't have school.
after this long layoff and big lead, does Andy come back out? he's only at 90 pitches, but...
 If he could learn when to get in the way, the Yankees would be even better off.
 Park is up, so I would guess Andy's day is over.
 I'm through defending him. The bullpen management in Saturday's game killed my last vestige of apology. I'm just saying, I'm happier when he doesn't try any strategy of any kind.
Ah, I see Thunderdome has arrived ...
WHO RUN BANTERTOWN?!?!?!?
corey hart now has 10 homers this month. he wears his sunglasses at night.
 it's Pepto.
 If I had ti choose between the extremes, I agree. It's better for him to just stay out of the way.
Once the Score Truck arrives, even the Ramiro Pena Experience can get a hit ...
We want double digits!
Double header for me. Off to the Mud Hens game, though there are off and on showers.
Chan Ho Ho Ho.
CHP = DFA.
Ho ho ho.
And that'll do it.
Good job, CHoP. Sort of. Good enough.
So long, Indians.
