Late Saturday afternoon game at the Stadium. It’s a beaut out there.
Never mind the preamble: Let’s Go Yank-ees!
And Happy Birthday Yogi!
Dang Ichiro caught that.
 I'm don't that "drive deep to right (309 feet from home)" would have made it out.
18 All Star appearances is pretty amazing.
 No, not out, but a double off the wall. Think Bobby Abreu makes that catch?
Old Kid vs. New Kid
Rauuuuul! Nice hitting.
Good job Russell.
double your pleasure, double your fun...
double the lead!
Nix nixes Ichiro's glove.
How about that?
 I think that most every RF not names Bobby Abreu makes that catch.
If someone in the 2nd row had sneezed, Ichiro would have had that.
Jeter is scuffling a bit these days. Hopefully he snaps out of it soon and gets back to Time-Traveller-from-1999 Jeter.
Nix hits a lick
 Yep. The ball looks like it's dying in RF--I thought Ichiro's out in the top of the first was long gone, but it ran out of juice on the track.
Um, communication, guys? Ended well, but still.
I would have cued the circus music, but it took me too long to find the link.
OK, not an ideal version, but....
You can't hit and think at the same time
DIno strikes again!
Dino go boom!
I hated the Ibañez signing, probably still do. But I sure can't complain about him so far.
Maybe Teix should shave his head?
7-string guitar is shredding!!!
 Well, in limited ABs, he is 2nd in HRs, 2nd in RBI, and with 10 pts of leading in OPS. He's pretty close to our MVP, as many of his RBI have been game winners.
 I second that emotion.
Does anyoen aside from Thelarmis eat frog legs?
Oh boy, Michael Kay with the rotating DH drivel. Using the DH to give a slugger like ARod a half day off is one thing. Using it to rest Jeter (unless he keeps hitting like it's 1999) is a waste of the position. Just give Jeter a full day off once every week or week and a half and put a legitimate DH in the DH position.
 I have...I like 'em plenty, but often find them not worth the money. MAybe it would be different if I lived where they are more readily available.
 Well, I've never eaten frog legs, but I *would* eat frogs legs, if I had the chance ... does that count?
The Korean supermarket down the street from me carries frozen frogs legs, I may have to pick up a package of them.
How should they be cooked???
 Haven't -- yet.
Meanwhile, Phil BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOghes continues to confound my expectations ....
 Fried usually, I think.
 At somebody elses house?
[39,40] Well, if I had my choice, I'd let Gator do them ... but I guess I'll just have to ask the intertubes and see what it suggests ...
Jeez... remember when Seattle had Junior, ARod, Edgar and RJ? Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Doesn't that look yummy?
 Dude, I may have to leave this thread and walk down the street to the H Market right now!
However, stay away from Frogs from oil spill areas.
Yikes. Big fly!
OK, no shut out.
Ah, there's the Hughes we know and love.
Better a solo shot than a walk.
I want Hughes out for the 8th.
Wow, seven innings for Hughes!
Imagine my surprise to come home and fine Hughes on the mound leading 5-1 in the seventh.
 I want him to finish the damn game, but then I'm pretty old fashioned about that sort of thing.
Pretty fast game so far, too.
Nix's double clutch fucked that up.
Good job Phil. That last hit was a cheapie.
Dammit. Oh, well. Good job, Phil. Best start in a long ass time.
Seriously? After an IF single and a blooper?
The Gritty Gutty Speedy Brett Gardner catches that fly ball.
Time for the pen ... good job, BOOOOOOOOOOOOOghes!
Jeter is flying up that top 20 hits list. He'll finish this season damn near in the top 10, methinks.
Very fishy home run.
This is soooooooooo dumb. Why don't they have a vidio review ump. The call could have been made while the guy was still rounding the bases.
