Yanks host the Mets against tonight in the Bronx.
Never mind the preamble:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Never mind that shit, I'll be here for this one.
We're gonna win.
 Never mind that shit, here comes Mungo!
Meh. I'm getting Cubs - Red Sox. and the game isn't on Extree Innings. Maybe I'll sit outside, read and listen to the Mud Hens.
 Never mind *that* shit, here comes MONGO.
Hey, anyone know what channel the game's on?
And so of course it starts to rain just as I go outside.
1-14 when down after FIVE?????
 Fox. national game.
 Oh, fuck me. (Thanks.)
 Is It Something I Said??? >;)
 How the FUCK is this a FOX game? It's FUCKING 7:00 pm here in L.A.
There sure as FUCK a Yankees vs Mets game on in the L.A. area.
I was stuck at a bad restaurant last night and missed every pitch of the game. For this I am glad.
 I'm so pissed I can't type straight.
It's *4* pm here in L.A. and there sure as FUCK ISN'T a game on here on FOX.
Alright, I'm going to the local Yankees bar ... 20 miles away ... but I'm gonna watch this game, or kill a FOX cocksucker if not.
DIE, FOX, DIE.
And I *ain't* speakin' German.
I'm already tense and irritable seeing these two bozos on the screen.
And the real indignities are yet to come...
Aceves is starting for Boston.
Swisher has seriously regressed.
I don't care if it was the rain.
He practically fucking fell on his ass the other day, too.
Tampa just lost.
 While you're waiting...
I love this.
Just love it.
Cubs got the first two on, then three straight outs. Apparently they have the same disease as the Yankees.
 It IS highly contagious.
Nice hit, Alex.
Fucking Fox! I'm reduced to Gameday.
How 'bout that Russell Martin, eh?
Oh, lovely. The game is simply blacked out here in L.A.
I love FOX.
 thanks for the reminder! but goddman, buck/timmay are the freakin' WORST!!! ugh.
 oof. did you drive 20 miles for the black out? drink lots o' sods, but don't drive 20 miles after!
hey cult, is Del Mar CA near LA or is it north cali?
btw, has it been mentioned that Gary Carter was diagnosed with FOUR small brain tumors today? sad.
WHY? YOU PLAYING del Mar???
 maybe. i take it it's nearby, huh? would that mean i fly into LAX?
nice catch, curtis!
He's good out there, that Curtis.
Yeah, LAX, or maybe John Wayne. It's about 1/2 way between LA and SD.
I wish they'd show it again and show it from a proper angle from start to finish.
greetins, creatins. I'm "watching" on the ipoop via radio feed tonight.
 Yes spoils us with replays. Fox fucking sucks at showing replays. Fuck them. Curtis went a long way to make that nice catch.
Nobody ever works out for the Mets.
Remember Mo Vaughan and Robby Alomar?
wow. a classic jeter oppo field single!
yay! : )
2 hard hit balls by The Captain tonight.
 It was very pretty.
 I missed the first one, glad to hear that.
Lay off the slider, Curtis. Stick in the seas, Teix! YES!!!
TEX GO BOOM!!!
Good work, Teix.
 his 1st AB, was a first pitch swinging high fly to center. wasn't crushed or super deep, but wasn't a shallow, lazy pop-up, either...
Man, Alex whistled that liner. Damn!
damn. reyes is robbing A-rod, left & right. (literally)
whew. nice diving catch by Swish!
at least Swish is doing something for this team..
look at that range for the captain! ; )
[right at him, for those who can't see...]
Now this is what I call Yankee baseball.
Oh, Robbie. You're KILLIN' me!
Except we need to get Robby right.
JAY-sus, Fox, is this a talk show or a ball game?
 i know. but anything that keeps timmay's trap shut is a good thing!
Saturday crowd, Scary.
Tex and Jeter hitting? Weather warming up in NY, it was warm in Texas and they stroked. Maybe those old joints need heating up.
Aj on the precipice, but his relaxation routine seems to be working.
fuck. i called fat liar's homer. dammit. shit sox took the lead. : /
 Cubs - RS announcers are just as bad, slurping the Sox & Adrienne Gonzales in particular. Crap, Ortiz just homered, more slurping to continue.
The 'ol lead off walk trick. Bollocks!
Curtis is good.
So the Yankees think the only place that's RISP is at bat?
i loves it!!!
Damn, I am so tired of all these home runs! Hitting so many homers is going to come back to haunt the Yankees. Somebody sacrifice, fer crisake!
 apparently so!
Youk just got plunked, warnings issued.
yeah, and fat liar's back up...
I can't watch. I'm on the road and my internet connection is too slow for my mlb.tv. Grrrr. I might have to go to a bar now to watch the end.
 couldn't have happened to an uglier guy!
 please have a beer for me! (or more sophisticated drink, as is your wont). i have another marimba recording session tomorrow, so no adult suds for me...
 Wow, you can't drink a beer the night before a marimba recording session? I have a kind of gig tomorrow, myself, but I guess I metabolize faster than you.
Anyway, my real answer is: gladly!
big Z got out of it...
2-1, after 5...
 yeah. it's my personal rule. i have to get up early and be sharp. really really really difficult material. i wanna be in tip-top shape. always for recording sessions...
thanks! and travel safely...
"quality" from AJ...
How come the Yanks can't find a pitcher like Aceves?
Jesus, bullpen, hang on will ya hah?
I'm calling it right here, Beltran is going yard.
 yeah, he pretty much kicked ass tonite. he was a good guy, too...
I'm so happy that I don't know dick.
una mas, buddy!
UGH. Sox get a strike-em-out-throw-em-out on what should have been called ball four. Man, I wish I could be watching the Yankees instead of this slop.
i wonder when it'll be time to give justin maxwell a chance...
cliff lee with another double-digit strikeout game...
big z in trouble, yet again...
 what is the name of a lou donaldson record on blue note from 1969?
and the shit sox extend their lead...and hold on (gulp) 1st place. : (
captain with a little range!
With D-Rob and Joba pitching like this, who needs Soriano?
march on, cap'n!
did jeter just tie rickey for most stolen bases in club history (326)?!
Curtis juuuuust missed it.
So no Mo.
Playing small ball? who are these guys and what have they done with my Yankees.
so, it's pronounced "no-essy"? i thought it was "nessy"...
damn...i really wanna see Mo pitch. but, now it's not a save situation. he warmed up for awhile though...
yup, according to lohud and william's blog, Jete did indeed tie Rickey. very cool!
looks like it's ayala...
Remember Benny Ayala?
Or was it Bennie?
and benny agbayani...
and benny and the jets...
and benny hill...
 And the Jets
this is nice, but i was so lookin' forward to seeing Mo...
 And that mohair suit...
Well, that was a very satisfying win in almost every aspect.
Only negative was watching Cano's at-bats.
C'MON CUBBIES!!! WOOT!
