What was that sudden shout from the crowd during the national anthem?

2 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:38 pm

[1] In the "Oh say cay you see" part ot the anthem they scream
"O'SSSSSSSSSSSSSS, say can you see"
Obnoxious. Especially in person.
Hey, Jetes!

3 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:39 pm

Well that was fast.

4 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:39 pm

Hells Bells, Curtis! Swing that stick!

5 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:40 pm

[2] Why do they do that?

6 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:40 pm

Picking up where...

Argh. I can't say it because Kay just said it!

7 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:40 pm

[5] O's. Orioles.

8 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:43 pm

[7] Oh, God, that is lamer than lame.
Jesus.

9 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:44 pm

Hit the warehouse, Robbie.

10 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:47 pm

[8] Happy Easter!

11 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:49 pm

[10] :) Thanks, RI. Happy Passover.

12 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:49 pm

Fuck.

I don't like leaving those runners on.

13 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:50 pm

[11] Holy Moses, thanks!

14 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:51 pm

I don't mind leaving runners on in general, but the two walks with nobody out should be converted into something.

15 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:55 pm

Hippity Hop everyone.

The O's fans believe they have a right to usurp the National Anthem because it is a product of Baltimore.

Nice play by Tex!

16 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:55 pm

Right, that's why the scorching hit didn't get through. Because Markakis is in a slump.

17 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:57 pm

Clap-clap-clap.
Fine Freddy.

18 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 1:57 pm

Derrick Lee should habe been punched out looking, but I'll take a nice 1,2,3 any day and twice on Easter Sunday. ; )

19 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:01 pm

Atta boy, Brett. Ugh. Terrible.

20 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:02 pm

Nice hit, Derek.

21 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:02 pm

[18] Heehee.

22 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:02 pm

Hmmmmm.

Derek is disappointing some of his "fans" today, huh? ;-)

23 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:03 pm

Damn it.

Curtis is looking to go deep.

If he looks to line it into left, he could have driven in Derek on that 0-1 breaking ball.

24 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:04 pm

Hoppy Easter

25 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:05 pm

Wouldn't life be great for us all if Jeter gets his average above 300?

I admit that my faith has been a little-ing.

26 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:06 pm

[25] I would be so happy.

27 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:13 pm

One more, Freddy. Get that slop over the plate.

28 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:14 pm

Did Fat Freddy's Cat leave a present in his glove?

29 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:15 pm

Good work, Garcia!

30 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:15 pm

Phew!

31 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:18 pm

They should just sit on that breaking pitch this guy throws.

32 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:25 pm

I mean, it certainly looks like a breaking ball but by no means unhittable.

They're all just looking for the fastball.

33 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:29 pm

[32] I'm trying to look back over the at-bats, but Gameday is all screwed up today.

34 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:32 pm

Freddy is the kind of guy who pitches against us, just like this, and we're all moaning, "Freddy Garcia? We can't hit Freddy Garcia?"

35 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:33 pm

[34] No kidding!

36 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:36 pm

Damn, a buck fifty-one.

That is not a high batting average.

37 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:37 pm

The Gardner is not raking this Spring. Let's hope he's planting seeds that will produce a bounteous harvest in September.

Sorry, I spent a couple of hours in the garden today.

38 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:38 pm

The ump's outside corner for lefties has been......generous to the pitcher.

39 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:40 pm

Damn, nice, Alex!

Didn't Mattingly homer in seven straight in 1987?

40 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:40 pm

[37] Ohhhh, God! Groaaaaan!

41 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:42 pm

[40] It was kind of a Jerzy Kosinski thing, you know?

42 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:42 pm

[39] i think it was 8 games...

[hi everybody.]

43 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:43 pm

[37] i thought it was clever...

44 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:44 pm

:)

45 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:46 pm

[43] There's such a fine line between clever and stupid. (From one of my favorite movies ever.)

46 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:47 pm

This guy struck out 211 times and hit .198?

And he still shows his face in a major league uniform?

47 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:47 pm

I mean, that's even worse than Steve Balboni.

48 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:48 pm

I know Adam Jones has not been a world-beater, but I kind of wish he were on our team. He's exciting and fun, like he could turn into an OF version of our Rob.

49 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:48 pm

Happy Holidays everyone.
Hey... Let's hope Jeter can get 2 hits EVERY holiday!
We're gonna need more then 2 runs today to Win.

50 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:50 pm

The Gardner plants himself!

51 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:52 pm

[51] He's looked like a weed in the batter's box thus far. Useless. My dog could sit in the box and watch strikes go by all day. Well. he might try to catch a few but that's besides the point.

52 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:52 pm

[50] Ok, now I'm cracking up.

53 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:52 pm

in the non-music room of the venue i played last nite, they surprisingly had the yanks game on the yes network on a giant movie screen. i brought my sticks, drum pad and bottle of water in and warmed up while watching a coupla late innings. what a treat!

i saw cc labor a bit in the 8th and a-rod's granny. also jorgie's homer. but i didn't get to see russell get hit in the back and gritner's homer. couldn't find video at the yes site. i guess i could search for some type of sportscenter vid clip, or something...

54 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:53 pm

[50] fine line, indeed...

55 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:53 pm

51 was for 50. D'oh!
Yay, Curtis!

56 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:53 pm

Thank you, Curtis!

See?

He adjusted, just like I said!

57 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:54 pm

Dave E. has really fixed Granderson.

58 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:54 pm

Ok, maybe they're on the breaking ball now...

59 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:54 pm

Curtis the other way. Damn.
I don't feel bad about Austin Jackson anymore.

60 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:55 pm

I sense a positive outcome from Alex.

61 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:56 pm

Good hustle, Alex!

62 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:56 pm

Not exactly what I had in mind. Oh, well.

63 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:56 pm

[53] I think the Brett homer should be easy to find, just at the mlb media page, but I don't see the HBP. Not much to see -- Martin got hit between the shoulder blades, he was obviously not pleased and the ump escorted him part of the way up the baseline.
The dugout reaction to the Brett homer is good.

64 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:57 pm

RBI, baby.

Yeah, I thought it was Roberts, not Itzuris, who slowed down that play.

65 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:57 pm

AJax's current line: .177 .253 .266 .519, 1, 3

66 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 2:59 pm

Aggh, come on, Robbie, man, that's the second K on that same pich.

67 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:01 pm

If we're patient or good next inning, it will probably be the last for Arrieta. At 85 pitches now.

68 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:05 pm

Freddy Garcia.

Can't quite believe it.

69 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:09 pm

Swisher can't catch a friggin' break. Oi!

70 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:13 pm

Ok, so moving right along from Derek to Jorgie, at what point should we start to worry about him?

71 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:19 pm

Bugsie Garcia.

72 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:21 pm

Wow.

How 'bout that Freddie Garcia!

73 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:22 pm

FAT FREDDY FIFTH FLINGER!

74 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:22 pm

Man, Vlad would drive you crazy if he were on your team.

75 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:22 pm

[70] Well, at least we likely have a replacement for Jorge ...

76 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:22 pm

the song's wrong: freddy ain't dead!

77 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:23 pm

[75] yeah. isn't that dude being celebrated today?

78 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:25 pm

Oh, really?

Joba?

Why break what isn't broken?

79 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:26 pm

[77] Different guy. You're thinking of a Jewish kid.

80 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:27 pm

fuck. is joba warming up? NO reason to take freddy outta the game. he's at 90 pitches...

81 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:28 pm

[79] oh, i see. you'll have that.

82 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:28 pm

[79] hhahahah.

83 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:30 pm

[80] Jeez, man, can you not understand the simplest things about baseball?
Joba's our Seventh Inning Guy. It is now the seventh inning.
Ergo...

I mean, really, what part of "Seventh Inning Guy" don't you understand?

84 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:30 pm

I guess I'd let Freddy start the inning.

85 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:30 pm

Oh. well, [83] there's that.

86 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:31 pm

It's true that Joba hasn't thrown in quite a while. I don't mind this move. (Yet.)

87 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:32 pm

DOES JORGE HAVE 3 MORE YEARS LEFT ON HIS CONTRACT????

88 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:34 pm

Damn, he's looking nasty.

89 Just Fair   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:35 pm

Watch your lips!

90 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:35 pm

That was scary.

91 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:36 pm

Mother of God.

92 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:37 pm

Crap.

93 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:37 pm

[86] Okay now I hate it.

94 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:39 pm

that was an easy call. and i made it here in my kitchen. just didn't type it. though i probably could've gotten away with it, on this day. you know, as a long-haired jewish kid...

95 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:44 pm

Robertson's up, which means something else is up ...

96 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:46 pm

Grrr.

Someone needs to remind Cano he doesn't need to swing at every pitch thrown to him.

97 earl   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:48 pm

[96] especially when it's the first one...

98 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:50 pm

Really.... Robbie has really regressed in pitch selection

99 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:52 pm

It's so confusing.
Is this the eighth inning, or are we already in extra innings???

100 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:53 pm

Good hitting there...

So Soriano is hurt or someone hid Joe's binder along with the eggs.

102 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:56 pm

Boone Logan? Not Mo?

103 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:58 pm

No, I'd stick with D-Rob.

104 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 3:59 pm

Whoa!
Good call, I like it.

105 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:00 pm

Ah it is to be Mo.

106 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:01 pm

wow. impressivo!

let's go MO!!!

107 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:02 pm

[105] Ooooooh.

108 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:03 pm

Jeez... don't he play a bit too shallow!

109 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:03 pm

All is forgiven.

110 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:03 pm

i love you, Mr. Mo!!! : )

111 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:04 pm

[108] No! That's the correct spot when Mariano is pitching.

112 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:05 pm

Gardner has already taken away many hits (including 1 or 2 this game) by playing so shallow, but that there shit was scary. The ball was well shollow of the warning track and Gardy barely got there.

113 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:07 pm

Happy Easter folks. Credit Gardner with the Save. Or am I counting my chickens. (Har-har).

114 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:07 pm

A 4th outcome!

115 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:07 pm

Only 2 pitches thrown in the 8th but still it'll be interesting to see what Mo does in the 9th, especially after nearly giving up a go-ahead hit.

116 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:08 pm

the shit sox have already put 3 on the board in the top of the foist. damn halos...

117 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:08 pm

Adam Jones is still a work-in-progress.

118 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:10 pm

what a horrible slide

119 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:10 pm

There's that 'put on a play' yuz guys love.

120 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:11 pm

Mattpat will be delighted. He loves plays.

121 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:12 pm

Awful wide plate today...

122 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:12 pm

That was plain ugly.

123 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:18 pm

Is it a bit scarier watching Mo in his first outing after a bad outing?

124 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:19 pm

Mo just doesn't seem right

125 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:20 pm

Excruciating.

126 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:20 pm

10-pitch leadoff walk?

oy vey.

Looked good to me.

129 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:24 pm

Not good. Mo will tire soon.

130 earl   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:25 pm

Game day says injury delay - what gives?

we are now officially in the annual "dip" portion of Mo's season

144 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:34 pm

Unbelievable. Unbelievable.

145 earl   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:35 pm

Whew - why did that have to feel so close?

146 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:35 pm

I shouldn't have turned it on. Never fails this year. Maybe it's because I went to church for the first time in 15 years. Jesus! (Staying with my church-going sis in LA).

147 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:35 pm

Logan and Nova in the pen? We are screwed blue

148 earl   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:36 pm

Wow- gameday said three outs -thought it was over...

149 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:36 pm

Nice play by Swisher.

150 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:36 pm

argh. at least we haven't lost (yet).

i guess soriano is not available for the 10th, for some unknown reason?

151 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:36 pm

Mariano is just slightly off. And the inconsistent strike zone doesn't help, obviously.

But who the hell is going to pitch for us in extras???

152 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:37 pm

Oh crap, sorry about leaving the tag open.

153 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:37 pm

By the way, fuck Girardi and is overmanaging - Garcia out after 90 pitches and 7 innings???

154 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:38 pm

i'll take it... but, damn - i could prolly hit the ball further than jeter...

155 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:38 pm

[153] No, six innings.

156 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:39 pm

My Lord.... what's left in our BP?

157 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:40 pm

[153] yeah. only SIX innings, actually. maybe he felt freddy hasn't pitched much, but i would've left him in. joba screwed the pooch. i did agree with bringing in Mo w/ 2 outs in the 8th though. wonder what's up w/ soriano...

158 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:40 pm

Who the fuck is Buddy Carlyle? And relation to our old Buddy, Sparkylyle?

159 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:40 pm

we best score some runs here.

i've got things to do!

160 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:41 pm

buddy carlyle was a Brave, so i actually heard his name quite a lot. and saw him pitch more than i'd like to remember. he's a middling, crappy righty reliever...

161 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:42 pm

fuck

162 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:42 pm

damn old jeter

169 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:44 pm

Wow.

Now *that* was a block of home plate.

I don't think Jeter ever touched it.

Bah.

170 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:44 pm

FUCK.

171 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:44 pm

Crappity crap crap.

172 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:44 pm

WTF!

173 thelarmis   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:44 pm

fucking brutal.

174 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:44 pm

WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT????????????
As that ball was caught, the O's announcer said "and that will get him Home".

175 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:44 pm

I guess Jetes should have knocked him down or something.

176 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:46 pm

He had a chance to score. He beat the ball by a bit.

177 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:46 pm

With Logan in, the over/under is 12 for no. of pitches remaining in the game.

178 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:47 pm

Or sllde harder? I mean the guy was standing up. How does his foot not come out from under him?
This has LOSS written all over it.

179 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:47 pm

[176] He did. And it was a great throw. But, great block. (I hate that play, but unlike Bobby Valentine I recognize the difference between Illegal and I-Don't-Like.)

180 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:48 pm

Although that was a shitty, dinky fly ball from ARod.
I BLAME AROD!

181 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:48 pm

I blame D'Antoni

182 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:49 pm

Can we get Andre The Giant to play 1st, and block all the runners from the bag?

183 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:50 pm

Boone pitching to a RHB? Our tank must be empty.

184 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:50 pm

But Mo did look shitty. Had almost nothing.

185 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:51 pm

Seems like Nova should be available. Why not?

186 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:51 pm

Derek Lee ain't what he usedta be.

187 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:52 pm

This one's going to 11. and probably be suspended.

188 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:52 pm

I'll take the rain

189 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:53 pm

The Supergenius has no bench at all.
Hm, if the end of the game is postponed, the O's could manipulate their 25 man roster and have another PH available when it's resumed! Of course, we could have pitchers available too.

190 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:54 pm
191 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:55 pm

I'm calling Cano to go all "The Natural" right here!

192 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:55 pm

[179] Maybe he slides behind the plate and tries to sneak a hand in. Aaaah, it's all water under the bridge now.

193 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:55 pm

If Nova is available, I think it's better for us to keep playing. If not, then it's better for us if they postpone.

194 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:57 pm

I guess that means no "Five o'clock thunder," like in the old days.

195 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 4:58 pm

Great. They are playing "Gimme Shelter."

196 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:24 pm

Game to resume at 5:35

197 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:34 pm

Yup.... the weather system was N-S but moving W-E. It blew past Balitmore at about 5:15.

198 Diane Firstman   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:38 pm

robbie!

(hi folks)

199 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:39 pm

Nicely done Robbie.

49 minute at bat, now *that's* some patience!

200 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:39 pm

the best offense in the AL, and you're bunting with swisher

202 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:39 pm

Hi Diane.
Damn, my mlbtv feed is well behind. But I knew from [198] I had something to look forward to.

203 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:40 pm

Woo hoo!

Wild pitch time!

204 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:40 pm

Yay! Busted play!

205 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:41 pm

Excellent. EXCELLENT.

Rob can do everything.

206 Diane Firstman   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:41 pm

That wasn't an SB, that was Defensive Incompetence

207 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:41 pm

Missed it. Triple?

208 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:43 pm

Nick, that was truly awful.

209 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:43 pm

[207] Double.

210 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:43 pm

[206] Incontinence.

211 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:45 pm

Lord, what do you do if Martin walks???

212 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:46 pm

Hooray bad throwing!

213 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:46 pm

Yay! Busted play!

214 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:46 pm

Never mind!

Everybody's Berken for the Weekend ....

216 Diane Firstman   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:47 pm

[210]

yes .... a leaky defense

217 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:47 pm

C'mon Slappy!

218 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:48 pm

[216] Ouch.

219 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:49 pm

Oy.
I wonder why no squeeze there. Oh well.

220 Diane Firstman   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:50 pm

WTF is wrong with Gardner .... he looks SO lost :-(

221 rbj   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:51 pm

Yes! More throwing yips!!

222 Diane Firstman   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:51 pm

There's been one ball out of the infield this inning ... right?

223 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:52 pm

Derek has four "hits" today. Woo-hoo.

224 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:52 pm

I'm not complaining!

225 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:53 pm

Weeping must be loving this inning ...

226 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:53 pm

JAY-sus. Keystone Kops.

227 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:54 pm

Looks like a gift Win. I'll take it.

228 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:55 pm

I'll pitch the 11th.

229 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:56 pm

Teix didn't study the strategy book. Hit the ball in the infield, that's their weakness.

230 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 5:58 pm

After watching Jeter today, I'll need to make an adjustment to the 'Jeter Shift'.

231 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:00 pm

Buddy Carlyle has zero Saves.

232 mhoward120   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:03 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, Buddy Carlyle.

235 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:04 pm

We didn't deserve that Win.
Baltimore didn't deserve it more.

Does God take Passover/Easter off?

237 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:06 pm

Damn, Curtis gives good interview.

238 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:07 pm

[236] He seemed to passover the O's.

239 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:08 pm

[238] Actually, I stretched that one. The passing over part was a good thing....as the story goes.

240 earl   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:09 pm

I wish I had passed over this one... geez, it's 01:09am here. Good night, all.

241 RIYank   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:10 pm

Good night, Earl.

242 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 24, 2011 6:21 pm

Soriano has lower back stiffness, according to the Ledger's Twitter feed.
