The heat is back. It’s humid and hazy in the Bronx. Thunderstorms this afternoon.
Never mind the sunblock:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Brick hot today. Perfect excuse to lie on the couch and watch the game/
Cuzzie working the sweet caught looking punch out. Att boy, 'Tolo. Oooooohhh, baby!
 What did we do to not get invited to the Banter Labor Day Picnic? ; )
 Dunno, must be a heck of a party.
 i followed your party here last night, just didn't post.
i never get invited to the cool parties... ; )
brains is on fire! he's prolly all worried with jesus coming and all...
dammit. i miss thames this game...
gritner with a leadoff single up the middle. he's been on base all 3 times today, 2 stolen bases.
grandy hasn't done anything...yet.
crap. still hasn't done anything today... (i'm not complaining about my boy curtis, btw!)
groundout to 2nd. brett erased on the basepaths...
shit. that woulda been a good time for a-rod to crush one.
ab starts off 3-0. then, the typical:
- strike looking
- strike swinging
Jesus... Robbie hits some fearsome ropes... but gets nothing.
well, The 'Tolo did well. 2 solo jobs did him in...
6 innings, 99 pitches. 6K/1BB. 7 hits. 4 earnies.
another quick out...gonna buy ricky an extra inning...
we know the Hammer is available, but prolly not sori/Mo...
jesus with his 1st major league hit! a single to left.
Colon back out there. Ah, just for the righty. Decent job.
 huh. how 'bout that? pretty cool.
please get this wise guy out!
now - score some goddamn motherfucking RUNS!!!
Att boy, Kid. Glad to see Jesus get that first one out of the way. Now it's time to put some runs on the board.
where'd it hit him?
also, COME ON A-ROD!!!
What the fuck? They threw at his head last AB
66 to 39. Yanks on the losing end of hit batsmen. Fuck that noise.
another 3-0 for Alex.
don't fuck this one up!
Hit him in the back, thelarmis
2-out rally due to wildness.
According to RAB the last time Arod batted 3rd the clean up hitter was Xavier Nady. Ha.
at first, i read that as an order! i'm way to passive for that kinda behavior... : )
well, romero's outta there.
we never get to see it, ('coz thankfully, it's the AL), but Romero, who throws lefty, bats righty. i hate when pitchers hit, but i always loved it when Mikey Moose would bat lefty! I miss Mussina...
My fucking house still has no power! Well, we got a generator from a friend, but, not as good.
So, just stopping by to say 'hi' and 'fuck everything' and 'just win'.
ROBBIE for President!
Rob, Rob, Rob.
Glad I stopped in!
Yes, Robbie Can - o
 holy motherfuck. that sucks, man!!! me sorry. very very sorry. : (
i was about to summons you here just a minute ago. you probably knew...
let there be light!!!
and let there be ROBBIE FUCKING CANO!!!
 he's got my vote!
 Yeah, that definitely sucks. Hang tight.
Good on 'ya, Swish!
 Oh, thanks. Hm, gimme a "let there be light" in the original Hebrew, that might work, huh?
Hey, Swishalicious! This suddenly turned into a great game.
Hey, Romero. That's a shame.
I see the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak -- the workers are actually on my road now, and the adjacent roads are back on line -- most of them. So, maybe tonight. And the one good part: getting entertained and taken care of by more fortunate friends.
 That's better news.
 oh, that light is actually just the front of an oncoming train.
hey, what did Swish do? all the game info on my computer froze up.
lohud had it...
rbi single for swish. robbie's 40th double, puts him over 100 rbi...
Hammer Time... You can't touch this.
 When CC doesn't start, Robertson should wear his pants.
and...i'm back up 'n runnin'!
d-rob with a quick & clean inning.
our win ex is now at 94%
who pitches the 9th? i thought GI Joe said Sori/Mo not available.
over 12 hammers thrown in the 8th...but, neh.
jopo in for jesus.
 Throwing the old man a bone. I was hoping to see Jesus bat again.
*still* Hamma Time!
well, that sucks.
not only is there a man on 2nd, but that 8 pitch at-bat drove his pitch count up to 22.
he's definitely not available tomorrow. but, i guess sori/Mo are...
hopefully The Chief gives us 7 strong tomorrow!
another long ab...
good job, kid.
30 pitches. 1 more out...
Good win. Here's to you Mr. Robertson. The Moless bullpen turns its lonely eyes to you.
My power came back on!
I'm sure this is because of D-Rob. Not quite sure how it worked.
 Good to hear. There are some things that are just inexplicable.
 congrats, my friend!
 "let there be light"
If you guys haven't seen Ben Revere's jumping over-the-shoulder catch, you MUST check it out.
This is simply one of the greatest catches I've even seen.
