Let’s Go Yank-ees!
Just in time.
I get cranky without my game thread.
I'm hoping for a BIG GAME from the BIG MAN, both on the mound and at the plate ...
9-1 win for the Yankees tonight. I want a laugher
 Verlander already took the 9-1 game (damn, he is dominating this year), so I'll go for a 10-1 win. Double digits, baby.
Now that's how you start a game against a bad pitcher!
Gritty way to start the game!
I don't know what that means, but it sure sounds like the sort of hitter that could hit homeruns!!!
Brett killed the rally.
Lou Montenez is still in baseball?
I loathe Reed Johnson.
Ah, fuck CC.
Robbie's only play there was to kick it soccer style. That I'd like to see one day. Asdrubal Cabrera caught a line drive a few days ago and then zipped it 10 feet to second base, behind his friggin' back for a double play.
 I dislike anyone whose entire game is "LOOK HOW HARD I PLAY!"
Oh, this game is gonna suck.
I'm eager to see CC swing some lumber. I don't have the stones to call a homer but that'd be hilarious to see.
Well, he did swing it.
That's weird. But CC would've been out anyhow, no need to pull a hammy here.
 You mean the Darin Erstad-All Stars?
Bobby V. makes Jeter hitting 9th sound so easy.
CC looks shakey and the Yankees look totally overmatched by Randy Wells.
Wow, Wrigley looks beautiful..why would anyone call it a dump?
I guess on any given Sunday...but I'm surprised at how well the Cubs have matched up against the Yanks. The Cubs have been gawd-awful this year.
 Because it's really old and falling apart. They have nets up to keep the fans from being brained by falling concrete. The bathroom facilities and such are not up to modern standards. When it rains, the roof leaks.
 Playing down to the competition. Which cellar dwelling team swept the Yanks in interleague a few years back?
Did anyone else catch that story about the Yankees fan looking for his rings?
So much for saving the BP...
 Well-put! Can't see any of that from the blimp-camera so only know those beautiful shots.
You know what would just make this series against one of the worst teams in baseball that much better? If the offense completely rolls over now and we get a Boone Logan appearance.
Gah, talk to my dad for father's day and we give up 4 runs.
Well there's a huge gift for all you fathers. Let's cash it in
Don't ground into a double play, you sonofabitch.
R. Wells coming down with a case of AJ-itis.
Well, ok, I guess ...
Jebus, Hugh Hefner is 12 kinds of creepy ...
So there you go, "Nuney" botches the easy ones, gets to the difficult ones in the hole ...
 He's at the game?
Mike Quade..the Stump Merril of the Cubs?
 ESPN3 "Stoli" ad ...
 Got game online here but with no sound..I imagine John Kruk has a full stock of baseball cliches on offer?
Dammit ... c'mon, let's hit this slop throwing douche ...
Hmm..A-Rod probably could have scored there..
Uh, guess what Bobby, you're kinda right, but you're *actually* wrong in this case.
Alex wasn't going to score on that well hit ball, NO MATTER his lead off 2nd.
 I don't think so.
In any case, same difference after the SF ...
 I'm enjoying this game on mute!
Tie game, now we got them!
Where is everyone? Sunday night game in Wrigley and such a quiet Banter?
 I know ... weird!
Well ... BALLS.
Standing on 3-2 to cheer him striking out the opposing pitcher? I know the Cubs stink but really..
 Passa Mike Quade.
Nobody gets my Pete's Dragon joke. : /
 Had to look that one up, well done!
HOW'S ALEX'S LINE AROUND 2ND THAT TIME?!?!?!?
Wait a minute. The Marlins are going the name Jack McKeon manager? Wasn't he losing his mind in 2005?
 That was a helluva throwback...
I'll take that!
CORNFLAKE'S THE NAME IN YAYAYOURTOWN.
Man. That sounded beautiful! CRACK!
that's a heart warming ovation for Jorgie. i really love it when we get such love on the road!
The Yin and Yang of Robertson ... meh.
Did he just walk Soriano on four pitches?
NO, DONT GET A LEFTY UP
houdini done it! (again)
The Yin and Yang of Robertson ...
oh, fuck yeah!
ooh, now i probably won't get to see Mo though...
Sweet home Chicago.
Gritner is just a lot of fun to watch, isn't he?
6 inches of foul territory encased in concrete. Nice
 that reminds me of John Tesh. ugh. : (
you see that funny Red Fang video. i guess it's been an online thing. a friend showed it to me. figured you'd like it...
Fuck history. This stadium sucks.
 that was supposed to be a question to Cult. sorry.
hey man - you see that red fang video? i didn't care for the music, but it was kinda funny...
 i'm with ya, man. i'm not a fan of fenway, either...
Maybe they can plant some cactus in CF....
 Maybe the Sox can trade the Cubbies a garage door for some ivy?
 i'd rather they just swapped won-lost records.
 That's what happens when you miss game chatters, you're not here when the "magic of memes" happens ...
at this point, they could rest russell, too. let brains make an easy out and catch the bottom of the 9th...
 acha! yeah man, insanely busy lately. it's gonna be even worse this summer. i don't think i'll be around much, at all. we'll see...
 thelarmis, how you doing man? I just got 3 free cds yesterday of Joe La Barbera and his group, label owner here gave them to me. Know his work? Seems he's played with Woody Herman and Bill Evans among others.
John Tesh is Terrible!
Talk to The Hawk, he's the one that made this happen ... TESH!
aaaah. fuck you, do me.
Nice Fucking soul patch, Reed.
 crazy busy, man. pretty anxious about all the work. i have too much on my plate right now...
i'm familiar with the name and i probably have him on some kind of big band recording, or something, but i don't have any of his solo recordings.
happy dad's day, buddy!!!
no no no, Mo doesn't need to warm up. please don't dry hump him!
 yeah, it's as awful as john tesh.
jesus joe. you know you're not gonna need mo. it's sunday, let Him rest!!!
Phew. 1 down.
 Exactly. It's unseemly to dry hump The Mo ...
 Good luck this summer, stay healthy and fit!
Ouch ... "mamas, don't your babies grow up to be ... catchers ..."
The ol' step back punch out. Beautiful!
HAHA. holy crap, that was friggin' hilarious.
these 2 clowns homered in the same game. unbelievable.
Put a tent on that circus!
Sliders away to Soriano. Simple formula.
ESPN3 shit the bed on me, what happened there ... another E6 by "NunEE"???
2 outta 3 ain't bad.
Cheers all. Huzzah!
 hard hit grounder, took a bad hop. nailed nino in the chest. he spun around and fell to the ground.
the ball caromed right to nunez who promptly threw it with all his might...directly into the ground 6 inches in front of him.
it's was *hilarious*! no runners scored...
 "it's was" - also hilarious!
