THE SEED IS STRONG!!!
SO strong, in fact that it conveys catching awesomeness to any who are born with the Molina name!
Damn, *just* missed that one.
Why is Robbie "bunting?"
Such quick fucking hands.
It's a great tactic. Square to bunt, draw the infield way in, and then hit the ball over the fence. More guys should do it.
Leiter is absolutely right, Swish is swinging like a lunatic.
Hey Hey Robbie!
One eye on the Yanks tonight. If you've never watched a game 7 of Lord Stanley's playoffs without a team worth rooting for your heart's better than mine. Go Sabres! Fuck Philly and Flyers.
Mattingly would have made that throw. :)
You're killing me, Brett.
It'd be nice to see Gus get a hit while he's still on the team. Frankie Brains looms . . .
Why on earth would you ever throw anything but a strike to Gardner?
Damn, this guy is good.
How the hell did we wind up with this guy?
 Jinxed him.
 Damn. I missed it, what'd he do?
Awww, it's the old park!
 Were you talking about Nova? I only meant he gave up a line drive right after you said it.
Bah. 2 bullets from Alex, 2 outs.
Huh, one run in 13 innings so far against this dominant White Sox staff. They are awesome. No wonder Chicago has won 10 out of their last 12!
What? Oh. Huh.
Cano's glove is not.
Uh-oh. He's Novaing.
ever get the feeling that if Cano had just plateaued after his crappy '08 he'd be Alex Rios?
Considering Granderson probably should have caught that ball and Cano certainly should have caught the throw, that could have turned out worse ...
SLAPPY GO BOOM!
Hey, I think Gardy's coming around...
Brett Gardner has become Jorge Posada
What is this lunacy with people unable to hit anything but homeruns?
Now, if he could only remember how to get hits that aren't homeruns ...
Meanwhile, Gus hits like a Molina, too ...
 Ohh, no, Chavez! He's the MAN!
 Most Molinas hit better
Whoa, Ivan the Great has made to the 6th? Well done!!
Wait, Gardener homered again??! Was it a cheapy NYS shot?
 Nope, legit.
Thank Mo JoeyJoeJoe is letting Ivan go deeper into the game.
Told you he's the man.
He's pretty good with the stick, too.
CMON 92 pitches, leave hin in there!!
I'm fine with Robertson here, Nova looked like he was losing the plate.
 Okay. I missed the beginning of the inning and was wondering if Joe was overmanaging. (I still suspect him of it.)
Plus Nova gets a hand, and can't get a loss. He was getting crispy.
Welp, my roommate managed to lose the radio feed of the game on my TV, so now I have to follow you guys for what's going on in the game... *sigh*... yeah, I'll just go make dinner and check back in an hour...
But the question really is, will the bats come out in the last third of the game?
 Walked AJ on four pitches that weren't particularly close.
 You can check Gameday or one of those things, no?
Or dinner, cool.
So, how many outs would you give D-Rob? I say up to five. Let him pitch the seventh, in other words, until he looks like he's tired.
Well, I'm sticking with that prescription anyway.
Fun game in Camden Yards right now, by the way.
Good ol' D-Rob.
Good ol' Juan Pierre.
 Yeah, and on MLB network, so if you got it you can see it. Varitek is certainly catching a lot of games so far, he won't last through June.
Erick Almonte placed on 7 day concussion DL
Nick couldn't hit water if he fell out of boat in the middle of the Atlantic ...
This is tedious.
Like I said yesterday. I hope Soriano opts out.
OHHHHH, FUCK MEEEE!!!
Oh, lovely, just lovely.
36 million for this piece of shit - we coulda had farnwsorth and 36 million blowjobs for that $
It's right down the FUCKING MIDDLE!
Completely unacceptable. Well done on that 3-year $800 kajillion contract for a fuckin reliever, Stein bros.
Soriano is a little petulant out there, not the heir apparent.
He is getting squeezed.
Well, that was too middleish
This guy's not just another Farnsworth, is he?
 Terrible three year deals for middle relievers are a Yankee tradition.
And that piece of shit gives up a walk and smiles.
 Where do you shop for $1 BJs?
 Oh, funny, I posted  before I saw that!
He'll make a great 5th inning mop up guy. A ittle pricey, but hey, whatever.
"36 million blowjobs"
Ummm.... problems at home mh?
 Maybe he could be the 18th inning guy.
Remember when Yankee games were supposed to over after seven innings? Plus it doesn't help that the strike zone has suddenly shrunk to the size of a teacup.
If there's any silver lining, the 234245 runs "JoSoMo" have given up this week might mean the end of *that* awful nickname attempt.l
Well... at least the Boids lead the Sox 4-1 after 7.
Swing the fucking bat.
I hate Randy Levine, who I blame for the Soriano signing, and every lead Soriano blows. To say nothing of the lost draft pick. Ugh.
A buck forty-eight.
 He's going to have to fight Swisher for hit. The battle of the one who can't hit vs. the one who is constantly hit.
 See, that really wasn't good advice.
We have what?.... 4 hits in these last 2 games?
Soriano has been horseshit. Swish, Gardner--never mind the dinger--awful.
Nice that the Yankees are fixing what ails the White Sox. They still can't hit...
It's a real shame if they lose this - two relatively stellar performances from their starters wasted, no help from the bats nor Soriano.
 Yeah, and when you live by the tater you're bound to go hungry when the crop fails..or something like that, can't remember that particular bit of homespun wisdom..
Oh boy, it's the Buddy Carlyle show!
Exactly what our night was missing ...
And if things aren't bad enough, Logan is going to build confidence.
Good ol' Oz.
I love it when the other team runs plays.
Ok, Robby, that goes a ways towards forgiveness.
Still, I don't think Martin's made a quality throw to 2nd all year, which is odd for a guy who threw out as many runners as he has historically.
This is fun.
More plays. Double steal, please! Or hit-and-run.
Great way to compensate for mediocre pitching.
Kitty's boy got out of it? I couldn't watch.
 Ground ball or something. I'm half watching
its a damn shame that Jeter is totally worthless
A hit's as good as a hit.
I'll take it.
Jeterian (latter day)
12 hits and 4 walks in 6.2 IP?
 Funny. The late Jeterian epoch?
Hm. A play.
Good way to compensate for crappy pitching.
ugh. should have swung on 3-0
This has DP written all over it.
 Sounds good, hahaha
Good news, O's beat Boston.
I'm not in love with that bunt, fwiw
What's going to happen...?
Finally calls the high strike.
Sit on it, Blue!
Ack. These down to the wire games are killing me.
Holy crap. What a catch.
Nice catch Dumbo.
Are you KIDDING ME?1?!?
Fucking nice catch.
Hats off. What can you say?
Christ on a crutch.
No Fucking Way.
Oh, that fucking sucks.
you double cocksucker
Double Fucking Nice Catch.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!
trade that fucker for soriano and his whole fucking worthless family
You have got to be fucking kidding me. Who catches that? Those were both laced. FUCK. Time to drink more.
Two straight awful, awful losses.
Happy Fucking birthday asshole. Sheeeet.
You see something new in every baseball game.
soriano can't even suck dick; he'd probably give up 2 balls
OTOH, don't save it for the 9th inning, guys!
Has anyone ever seen two game saving catches that would have been walk-offs by the same player to end the game?
I guarantee, by the All-Star break, the Yanks will be at least 10 games behind the Red Sux
Unrewarded heroics by Cano and A Rod
Let it be known the Yankees scored two runs in 18 innings against Phillip Humber, Gavin Floyd and the White Sox bullpen
Yeah, and give that kid credit, he robbed the win from the Yanks. Great plays.
"Baseball is a lot like life. The line drives are caught, the squibbles go for base hits. It's an unfair game." - Rod Kanehl
148) It happens. And Floyd isn't terrible either.
"Fuck that shit" - me
 he's pretty much the textbook definition of "meh."
I'm not even that mad, I'm just sorta...flummoxed
 Moe Howard would be 120 years old. Is that your handle origin?
The guarantee that the Yanks will be 10 games behind the Sox by the ASB? You want to put a wager on that?
155) Yeah, can we hold you to that prediction? What's the prize if n youse wrong?
153) Welp, even "Meh" has its day.
