Clifford does like Clifford do.
Yanks-Rangers in a possible playoff preview (minus, you know, a couple of aces for the Yanks).
Should be funski.
Let’s go Yan-Kees.
Javy & AJ? Ugh. Time to start drinking heavily.
I predict that AJ turns it around in Texas!
(But don't let me stop you from drinking, rbj.)
Yosemite Sam = Rootin' Tootin' Ranger
Poor Jav. That's a lot of payoff fouls!
Needed those two quick ones.
Okay, here we go, time to show this duffer who's boss.
Now we're talking.
Huh. For some reason I thought we were talking. Must have been a dream.
Oh, maybe I just misunderstood. Now we're walking
Oh, hi Will. Gosh, I'm embarrassed, you kind of walked in on me in the shower here. I wasn't expecting anyone till later.
 get dressed! but nice job there. all alone and shit.
Wowzers... I'm turning this game off. Horrible-horrible, these umps need to be elected to Congress so we can keep them away from the game.
 Get dressed in time to watch Javy implode?
Jesus Christ, every time I say, "WOW, that's the WORST call I've seen this year", some asshole in blue makes me a liar.
 Don't worry, I was blinded by the stupidity of that call, so I didn't see a thing. I'm out anyway, peace. No fun watching or listening to games when you have to witness such incompetence...
Wow!--Derek at .261!
Damn, Swish has got one fuck of a bum leg.
Oh, nice. That's much better.
Welcome back, Alex! Turns out we did miss you after all.
 Yeah, getting him some serious rest seems like a good idea.
Loss of the bat be damned.
That wasn't a bad pitch. A-Rod just powered the shit out of it.
Hey, look at that! A timely hit.
Anyone up in the TX bullpen? I'm not watching. (My kids have commandeered the tv.)
Here's to the Bronx, Michael.
Man, you know you're struggling as a pitcher when you can't even get Brains out ...
 (You should show 'em who's boss. Maybe tan their hides or something.]
NICE 2 out rally!
17. weeping for brunnhilde
September 10th, 2010 at 9:02 pm
Wow!–Derek at .261!
Wow!-Derek at 2/$16m
Anyone know the word on Andy, btw?
nicey nicey! LET'S GO YANKEES!
"If Hamilton still has pain in a few days, he'll probably undergo a CAT scan."
Looks like Hammy could be out for this series.
 Oh, uh. Well, two of them are bigger than me, so tanning is pretty much out of the question.
 Take a look at Thunder Thoughts for Mike's superb coverage of Andy's Trenton start.
Andy Pettitte (groin) nearing return
Ok, guys, so I've been very out of touch probably since July. Did I imagine it, or was Javy in the pen for a bit? Yet here he is. Anyone care to explain?
 Heheheh. Cheers, RI!
(Paul is funny.)
 Yeah, we noticed that you'd been absent.
He got a little rest, is all. The idea was always for him to return to the rotation.
But I think he's a long shot to be in the post-season rotation. Probably AJ, or if he stinks in September, then Ivan Nova, who has been quite good. And Andy, CC, Phil.
Oooh, Wilson is gone. Any explanation?
 Cheers, OYF.
Wow. Jeter chopped one to 3rd. Hard to believe.
One pitch one out Derek.
Amazing what we're watching.
 Yeah, I keep hearing about this Nova guy.
AJ? I mean, I guess you just have to roll the dice with him, but Jesus, what's he, like 10-13?
 Case of the sucks ...
I thought that was gone off the bat.
He hit that thing hard.
Jeter's OPS is now a point lower then Nunez's.
 He's been worse than usual. But, you know, when he's good...
 Javy also had two strong long relief apperances that mattered when he was in the pen. He then was returned to the rotation. His first start back in rotation last week against Toronto... not great, and Javy was pulled in the fourth giving up 5 earned, but the Yanks won. There were two cheapie home runs against him, but home runs nonetheless.
Should Paul and Kim be on the road together?
 Heheh. He does have electric stuff.
 Hehehehe. You mean like a vaudville routine?
 No, like maybe they shouldn't...unless chaperoned.
Like I said , Javy can watch post-season play from the bullpen.
Good work, Javy.
I'm absolutely shocked that we finished that inning with the lead.
 Me too, and yet that's the case.
 I don't know why we try to predict baseball. It can't be done.
I'd love to have a drink with Ryan and Reggie ...
Javy pitching for his playoff life, found a way to get out of that inning.
That Borbon two run double was lucky. Javy kept his head.
Snappy Javy gets through the fifth!
 Javy frequently makes me want a double Bourbon, as it happens.
It strikes me as a little odd how Nolan Ryan has become Mr. Texas Ranger, and he played only five seasons for them at the end of his career. In my mind he is always an Astro.
 Yeah, he is an enabler for abuse.
You know, I just don't like watching Javier Vazquez play baseball. Even if the line at the end of the day is fine.
How is/was Javy tonight?
 I always think of Ryan as a California Angel..
 The usual.
 Two good innings. One bad inning that he wriggled out of, two more where there were runs but not as many as he deserved.
In other words, bad.
 Agreed, he was Gene's boy, and most productive as an Angel.
 See 
I'm glad that O'Neill is critical of the September call-up rules...i agree entirely.
69) it's just that I remember him the most as an Astro, which has more to with my age than anything else. He played eigth seasons for both the Angels and Astros, I think...with shorter stints for the Mets and Rangers bookending his career.
 Of course he's an Astro. I agree.
 Damn, really? He was eight years with California?
 Funnily enough, I only remember Nolan the Ranger. And barely.
Money for nothing.
Strop'em if you got 'em
 Ports or dep!
Hm. Not enough.
Well, how about one scoreless inning, JV, and we'll turn it over to our stellar pen.
The Athletics are lighting up C(la)y Buchholz in the first inning.
I think Kinsler is going yard here
Come on, Boone. No fear.
If there's one thing that most drives me nuts in baseball, it's when the LOOGY comes in and walks the lefty.
85) Mattpat, cut that out!
I remember Ryan as an Astro and Ranger. IIRC, it was a big deal when he signed with the Rangers.
I smell a chess match brewing.
 Well, I think the thing that drives him nuts the most is a waste pitch on 0-2.
 OOooooooh, good call.
The A's are now 4 for 6 plus two walks against Buchholz.
I meant three walks.
Welcome to September.
All these pitching changes must be fun in the Texas heat ...
this IS exciting. I think MLB should consider going to expanded rosters for the entire season.
Now four walks.
He can't calculate the trajectory of his pitches. It's like someone stole his laptop.
Here is an amazing stat ... Joey Votto has not hit a single infield pop-up ALL season!
Now 5 for 7 with four walks against Buchholz. Total disaster.
Cy Young, baby!
Wait, I missed that. They IBB'd Cervelli???????
And Clay is gone. Welcome, Dustin Richardson! And good luck to you.
This isn't just chess..it's three dimensional chess.
Your move, Mr. Spock
99) yep, but only after the pitcher threw a couple of real pitches. And looky here, it worked out.
Is the end of this Yanks season just a bit anti-climactic? Watched Braves-Cards on tv here this morning, bit more exciting watching teams who are battling for a spot..I think the WC system needs some tweaking..
Ok, back to work for bit, then done like Quitters, Inc..
jus' gettin' here. lots ta catch up on, including cliff's preview at pb...
 glad ya got the message! nope, didn't see jjmerlocks wishes, but they are most appreciated!
 l'shana tova, good yuntif, happy jew year and all that kinda good stuff, diane! : )
i'm really diggin' this kerry wood!
I ♥ Kerry Wood.
I know he's been a little bit lucky, but damn, what a godsend.
I'd certainly let him pitch the eighth here.
Javier Vazquez is one of the players of the game?
 Hey, glad you could drop in. You missed the hair-extracting part of the game (also the score truck though).
 Maybe it's like when Time made Hitler the Man of the Year?
not sure if it was mentioned earlier in the thread - i haven't read through the comments...yet - but:
i just scrolled down at lohud and saw the picture of andrew eugene with his left arm all wrapped. looks like he's getting ready to dress up as the michelin man!
Poor Jetes. Multiply our frustration by 10 for the way he is feeling.
 by my count, yes - he was one of 28 players (thus far) in the game. if i "miscounted," it's 'coz i'm a drummer and generally not required to count past: four.
 ooh, please don't mention the "aitch" word. esp right after rosh hashana. plus, i'm eating dinner (and drinking my last beer[s] til october. he's my most hated evil creature ever of all time...
 VERY glad i missed the hair extracting moments. i love my locks! plus, i have a photo shoot on sunday for my record, so i need the length!
 yeah, but he gets to go home to minka kelly and doesn't have to worry about paying his health insurance bills! ; )
 Most hated: You mean, more than Schilling????
Speaking of, you also missed a delightful start by Clay "Cy Young Contender" Buchholz.
Joe is going to play for one run here. I want two.
Ryan was on the '69 Miracle Mets. 92 Ks in 89IP (and 53 BB), with a 3.53 ERA. His Mound mates were Tug McGraw, Gary Gentry, Jerry Koosman and Tom Seaver. He was a regular player for TWENTY SIX years.
 Jesus. Amazing.
 yup, even more than fat scurt! i just checked on laptop buttholz. that is truly a beautiful line in the box score! couldn't have happened to a nicer kid... btw, is that lars anderson's mlb debut?
 No, he's been playing for a few days. Lars, I mean.
Okay, Rob, cash 'em.
 thelarmis, long time, man! Billy Bang and his group here in town this week, am hoping to check them out. also dogging some Milford Graves this weekend.
Good God, Texas deserves to lose this game just to spite Ron Washington.
ENOUGH with the pitching changes already.
I must be getting old: Nolan Ryan was an Angel to me. He had his most career victories there, and must have pitched at least 4 no hitters as an Angel.
Of course I remember him as a Miracle Met along with Seaver, Koosman, and Gentry, but he just a rookie.
Oh, and  Clay put the first five A's on base in the first (before getting a DP), and then he put the first four on in the second, and they yanked him.
 that's cool. Lars is one of my (many) sobriquets. hence, theLARmiS...
 hey buddy!!! i'm not familiar with either of those guys...
 hey bro!
Ya know... sometimes we get so wrapped up in the Yankee games, we miss the really important news. From ESPN:
"Manny Ramirez and the Chicago White Sox reached a compromise about the slugger's dreadlocks... "
 oh cool, thanks for clarifying. i didn't look closely enough to see he started the 2nd inning.
RI - i believe Ian Kinsler is a tribe member, as well...
 l'shana tova, OYF!!!
Joba. I would rather see Kerry throw another inning, or at least start this one.
Ron Washington has lured Joe into a game of roulette.
Gee, *thanks* Joba.
That was AWESOME!
Well, there you go.
Could this end up being a 4.5 hour game?
Longer now...thanks Jaba.
Fading fast, ya think Washington is holding?
Well, maybe in big games Joe will be less inclined to play roulette?
(Ha ha ha ha! JK.)
 Well, '69 was actually his 2nd full year with the Mutts, and he did 5 before they game up on him. Another famous Mets trade (for Jim Fregosi). But even then, people knew he was loaded with potential.
And Joba has been such a disappointment (86 ERA+ from the BP).
I was only half paying attention. Was Swisher removed for a pinch stand there?
motherfucker. i figgered kerry would start the inning and joba would finish it. goddamn fucking piss fuck shit hell.
 He is, you're right. Gordon Edes mentioned it a couple of years ago in coverage of the All Star Game here. Notable quote:
The Jewish faith was in play.....There are three Jewish players in the game: Kevin Youkilis, Ian Kinsler of the Rangers and Ryan Braun of the Brewers. Kinsler said that Youkilis will say stuff to him during games. Like "Happy Passover,'' he said.
Remember when Joba was good?
Hughes as the longman tonight?
 Jerry Reinsdorf, Hawk Harrelson and MannyBManny are enjoying some papaya smoothies at the health club one day when a beautiful blonde walks by...
thelarmis, surprised you don't know Graves! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milford_Graves
 He has been good for the last month. How fickle we be.
 ugly should've at least said "pesach"...
i remember singing the 4 ?'s w/ the drummer from Jane's Addiction at his 1st drum clinic in NJ back in May '95. good times!
 braun really downplays his judaism. goes out of his way to say it's just his dad and he doesn't consider himself jewish in the slightest. now, i'm not religious, but i appreciate the shawn green way of things more...
some years i'd sing the 4 ?'s in a death metal voice. my grandma would giggle! : )
 He might have said "pesach". This is Gordon Edes reporting.
Oh, well, you don't know Gordon Edes. But precision and accuracy are not among his strengths.
Wow, really? I loved Jane's Addiction around then. Hm, maybe a couple years earlier.
 Long time ago, thanks for memoring me. I didn't bother to look him up in the baseball ref.
 Hey Dude... when I was growing up in Great Neck, I had a chance to take lessons from a guy who was pretty famous (but I didn't go for it. Any guesses?
wait, (beast of) borbon doesn't get an rbi for that?!
 Hm, Great Neck. Is there a particular association with Great Neck?
 We both lived there.
 WOW, thanks! i mean, the name looks vaguely familiar, but i don't really know him. don't think i have anything he's on. i need to check him out! in fact, i think this is deja vu all over again, as we had this discussion before and you linked that page!
 yes, really. yeah, Janes had those two fantastic records - nothing's shocking & ritual... i dug them the same time you did. i'm good with those 2 albums, i don't need any others or side projects, reunions, et al...
 ooh, coulda been a host of folks: joe morello, jim chapin, al miller, henry adler, charlie perry, les de merle...
feliz is the real deal. netfali is quite an odd name...
Good night for Cervelli. Four PA, three BB and a H.
 you grew up in great neck? my great aunt lives in little neck...
 he had a 4-hit game the other day, too... does this mean moeller is catching the 9th (and possibly, beyond...)
does fat elvis wear Puma cleats? he should certainly have an endorsement...
according to chad at lohud, hughes is warming and that means he's definitely pitching the 9th...
really good pitchers duel between the Sans teams. no runs, 2 hits apiece thru 6 in a tight pennant race...
Not a good game for Gardner.
 Makes sense.
That Berkman at bat was big. Even though nothing came of it, Berkman and Brett wore out Feliz and he surely won't pitch in the tenth (assuming there's a tenth).
There are several baseball players named Neftali. All from the DR, except Neftali Soto, who's Puerto Rican.
 Don't forget their self-titled 1st (though non-studio) album.
This might just be my favorite cover of this song evah!
 i think it was you that wanted Big Z after his meltdown. he's been doing great lately. not only did he get 3 hits, score a run and tally a ribbie today, but he also pitched 26 outs, allowing 3 hits, 3 walks, no runs and 9 k's.
 are the others in the majors? i don't recall seeing that first name in mlb...
 OK... I'll make it multiple choice:
A) Groucho Marx
B) Sid Caesar
C) Sam Berlin
D) Alan King
E) A 'colorful' Yankee (who was a Little League coach when I played).
F) Ed Shaughnessy
 i didn't! i left it out purposely. it is a good live record and a great cover, but i don't love the album. i remember it's on XXX records.
 What about Marvin Hamlisch or Hal David?
 i like anti-elf the best, but Cult and i are both Dio fans and we need to pay our respects. RIP, RJD.
 ah, that makes sense. i didn't realize he was in NY. i thought he was out in Cali, w/ johnny carson. you shoulda studied with him! did his chops (mutton, not drums!) scare you off, as a kid?! i know they scared me! i don't know a ton about him, but he seems really cool; he's even gotten into studying all the crazy complex Indian rhythms and rhythmic systems, like i do. good stuff! (plus, i like his initials on his bass drums!)
 And you can argue that the colorful Yankee is a colorless Yankee. He actually lived in Lake Success.
Oy, Derek needs a few days off.
Calling a Colin Curtis shot right here!
I'm finding it hard to take this game seriously. It feels like an exhibition game.
 'Cept the Rays already won tonight.
 This was 1970ish, and I think Carson was in NY then. I had no idea who he was. I believe Andy Rosengarten also lived in GN... he played on the Dick Cavett show?
 Marvin Hamlisch couldn't play the drums for shit. Neither could Fitzgerald.
 Good catch. Lake Success was one of the many Villages or Hamlets of Great Neck.
Tex' shot a HR in YS.
No cigar for Teix.
I HATE tied games on the road.
Especially one's that start later then 7.
 Yeah, and if they'd already lost you'd feel the same way.
But, so would I.
When we play the Rays, it will probably feel to me like a Real Game.
 I grew up in Roslyn Heights, went to Herricks HS.
i hope hughes is coming back out...
speaking of phil - i'm (again) glad we didn't trade him for johan. santana's about to have shoulder surgery - for the 2nd straight season - for a tear. ugh.
Huh. Mo in a tie game on the road.
If I'm not mistaken, this has historically been a bad situation for him. But, I can't object.
I beginning to hate this game.
 that makes sense. about carson being in ny then. yeah, i can see how a kid wouldn't know who ES was. he never gained anywhere close to the recognition of his peers, say Louie Bellson. i only knew of him from some ads in Modern Drummer and that he was the tonight show drummer. i'm still not familiar with his playing much, at all... i don't know the other names you mentioned...
 HA! i used to play baseball against Herricks in high school!
only 11 pitches for hughes. eleven. nevele. that's nearly a hundred fewer than eleventy.
 i missed most of it and i'm right there with ya...
Dayum, that a HR in YS too.
Ian, behave yourself during the Holy Days, please.
kins can atone that sin one week from today, at sundown! ; )
Wow... Kinsler told the Ump to Gayn Cacken Ofn yam
Now let's get five runs and let Meat Tray bring it home.
 i'll take that rusty old boat anytime!
Wow. Rivera is superhuman.
 hilarious! i don't know what each word means, but it's funny nonetheless. (i think it means to eat shit...)
 make sure it's kosher l'pesach!
 actually, i don't think he's human at all!
The Sox are getting shut down by Cahill.
This Darren O'Day is good, huh?
O'Day's night is done. Time for the TENTH Ranger pitcher.
An unlimited supply of D.O. pitchers.
robbie's gonna rope a laser into the seats...
 O'Day is otay (said Buckwheat).
 Oliver is schmegegge.
All due respect Robinson, you swung.
 that's a great word. did you know there's a band (from sweden, of all places) called Meshuggah?! their musicianship is beyond comprehension. not fully my cup of tea, esp in the vocal dept, but they are unreal... one of my grandma's would say 'meshugganah" sometimes
 I'm only using it because Ken Boyer Crying Victim did a few days ago, actually.
But I do know 'meshugenah', of course.
mista tims. and another pinch stand there...
SOOOOOOperb shot of Mike Scioscia just now after Fernando Rodney blew the save in the 9th against the Mariners..I love watching the Angels lose...
So will Swish be pitching for the Yanks at some point tonight?
 the band = meshuggah. the album = destroy, erase, improve
I'm out, folks. See youse tomorrow.
 swish was taken out for a pinch stand there...
 laila tov
This game has developed a bad case of the ughs.
 Sadly, no... he's been replaced by Golson, who was replaced by Curtis.
And now I'm really out. Later.
 There's enough schmegegges in the world for all.
One more inning for the Mo-bot!
So Mo can come out for two, but not Robertson, Hughes, or Wood after they mowed them down in their innings. Or should it be Mo'ed them down?
 Yikes... this is VERY hot!
Listen to his bass work!
 "mo-bot" = fugging brilliant, cult!
 yeah, i was surprised wood didn't start teh 8th and hughes didn't go 2 also. he only threw 11 pitches. with him though, i'm sure they have a "plan"...
Is it me, or is Arod flinging the ball kind of funny on his throws to first?
 ooh, i'm wireless right now and running low on battery power; can't watch video at the moment. i've seen that before though. he's an *amazing* technician. the 'stick clicking' (buddy rich) he's doing at the beginning is basically harder than playing drums. i do that stuff, but not nearly the way he can. it's unreal. yeah, his feet are ridiculous. he's just not that musical, imho
Thanks Cap'n that was a GREAT at bat.
Jeter is just worthless now. It's freaking painful but he can't seem to do anything to help the team win right now.
Fucking Jeter is just killing us.
Jeter can't get the ground ball to shortstop? That's what he does, what a stinker of a game for him.
C'mon Colin, git 'er done ... please?
chad fucking moeller!!!
Not a bright idea to sacrifice to get to Jeter either, but Girardi is in denial.
jesus christ jeter. that's fucking pathetic. all kindsa awful.
Somebody set this game to "SUCK".
Gardner bunting with Jeter OD was stupid.
I cannot take it anymore. I'm pau hana. I cannot face what could happen with Chan Gaudin.
well, go-dan better be coming out for the next inning (at least...) 10 pitches.
I was at the SWB Yankees game tonight. Kei Igawa started. I thought he was a relief pitcher these days, but he threw 93 pitches.
SWB Yankees lost and face elimination tomorrow, but it wasn't Igawa's fault. He pitched 7 innings and gave up no runs.
A-Rod clutchity clutch!
Anyone still awake out there..??
M's - Angels in bottom 11th on tv here..
Oh come on.
 of course, i'm awake!
"Fuzzy" Moeller is going to wear this pitcher down!
Moeller's gonna grind this at bat out!
Common, Toothache. How about another double?
can we employ moeller's previous double *now*? please?!
I can't believe Moeller is actually still in the majors...was Wil Nieves not available?
 Nieves actually plays for the Nationals, he was their backup all year.
I can't stop following this madness....
 iirc, nieves hit a homer for the gnats not too very long ago...
Wil Nieves has been playing pretty regularly for the Nats. For three years now.
Well, at least THAT'S over.
What a lousy game.
Nelson Cruz, Yankee killer.
 Really? Wow..don't think I could name a National other than A.Dunn and Boy Wonder..but havn't been following so heavily this season..
These teams both in the playoffs, shouldn't Girardi or Washington just call for a fat pitch to try and end it?
 Ask and ye shall receive!
and there ya have it. fuck.
i actually like cruz. not right now. but i hope he goes 20-20 again...
glad i'm drinkin' beer tonite...
Well, that's that. It's a shame I won't be able to follow the AJ game tomorrow......
well, hopefully go-nad won't be on the postseason roster.
Did I spend five hours of my life watching the Yankees lose in the thirteenth inning after Javy spit the bit yet again, Joba returned to form, and Joe Girardi used two separate pinch stand theres in the game?
 Afraid so Matt. I have to agree with you that the guys who come in for the off chance that they can score on a double in the gap is one of my biggest pet peeves as well.
 I turned the TV off. I fear what I would do if I heard "I was hoping Nunez could score from a stand still on a gapper."
 How about their stud relief pitcher? Peaches, previously known as the Yankee Clippard. And Pudge Rodriguez. And the attorney general. Alberto Gonzalez has stuck with them for three years.
 alcohol, my friend!
(and don't forget about jeter w/ a man on 3rd and 1 out...)
 i like ian desmond and justin maxwell, too. of course, they have that complete asshole nyjer morgan. idiot fucker. ramos is up now, as well. and who can forget el duque's 1/2 brother? he's now even signed for next season!
 Yes, I like Desmond and Maxwell, but I wouldn't expect them to be known by the average Yankee fan.
I go to Syracuse Chiefs games from time to time, so I saw a lot of Maxwell and Desmond in AAA.
I used to really like Nyjer Morgan when he was a Pirate. What can I say, I love those speedy, scrappy guys who can cover three zip codes in the outfield. But he's really been a jerk lately.
There are not enough swear words, although I have used them all screaming at my computer.
For the love of all that is holy, Jeter, please, drop yourself in the lineup.
It's agony to watch him.
This was the most predictable loss of the damn season. If only I could have wagered every last cent I have - I felt the greatest certainty that this game was going to be a loss from the sixth inning on.
Fuck you, Joba, to infinity.
Fuck you, Girardi for using Hughes when the horsees were running all over the place with the barn door flapping behind them.
Here's how it works - Joba is a fat, counter-intuitively gutless piece of shit who can't pitch the eighth anymore.
I blame him for everything that happened. And I also saw the Cruz home run coming from a mile away.
I think I may have understood something like 0 out of the 53 moves Girardi made tonight.
And yes, five and a half miserable, excruciating fucking hours.
That's the kind of game that makes me want to never watch a baseball game again.
What slow, certain, painfully predictable death that was.
There are so many things about this team I don't like right now, and haven't liked for months. To be honest, I have no idea how they win sometimes, because there are a slew of teams that I watch them play against and come away feeling that the other team is simply better than them.
Our shortstop and lead off hitter or death hole in the two spot might as well roll up to the plate in a wheelchair with a paddle.
I had a great feeling last year heading into the postseason. The way this team is right now - the current levels of performance of many of the crucial parts - I feel terrible about this team in a postseason series against any of the other contenders.
I'd like to think differently, but I've felt this way for much longer than just tonight.
I have a headache
 Joba looked enormous tonight. He's like the two face on Seinfeld. He has nights where he looks like an athlete, and nights where he looks no less that 400 pounds. And when he starts to suck, I swear he expands on the mound.
 i like those types, too! i guess we have to stick with rajai davis for the time being. : )
 me too. more beer!
 i love cursing!
I put the recap up. But vent wherever you prefer. Seems like I've said that a few too many times for one season...
 This was like the spit flecks forming on the screen, neck veins bulging, head rush, inconceivable depths of sin during the HHD's swearing.
And like others, my head is killing me.
 It's how I justify the horrifying epithets I scream at Joba - he cant possibly be working hard enough when he's such a disgusting feckless lard ass. And he did look enormous, from his first gutless moments on the mound tonight.
I am still insane with fury, disgust, loathing.
 i'm sorry to hear that. i'm quite relaxed, drinking a beer, listening to acoustic musik, reading jon's recap in another tab. headache persists, but overall, it was still a good day. : )
 Miserably, miserably lousy day. Played softball with the school folks for the first time in years, those young idiots for the first day out went with minimal warm ups and a ludicrously pointless scrimmage, rounded second on a weak obvious third out hit to the shortstop, but the throw was shit and the runner was safe and I had to slide in under a tag back at second base. And hurt that insanely painful sheath on the outside of your ankle.
My head is pounding, partially from having stood up into the edge of a cupboard door a few days ago - that part of my skull is still throbbing.
And I knew I wanted no part of tonight's game, so I'm not only infuriated, but also infuriated with myself for such execrable judgment.
