Man, Teix down to seventh!
So they’re going to play through the rain.
I’m always happy to watch a Yanks game, but this is one of those nights they’d have to pay me to sit in their seats and drink their beer. I wouldn’t do it for less than $400 plus travel, and parking expenses. Everybody has their price. That’s mine.
TOP OF THE 1st: KC 2 – NYY 0 (homer by Moustakas)
Yankees are losing. This is familiar.
If Gritner is in LF, there is no score in this game. It’s not only that Raul is bad, but that Gritner is great. His glove is sorely missed.
I am trying not to let the Yankees get me down, but they suck at the moment. Come on, it is the Royals.
BOTTOM OF THE 3rd: KC 3 – NYY 0 (The first three Yankees reach base)
You know what’s perverse? I’m getting nervous about the prospect of bases loaded no outs because that seems a situation doomed to disappoint.
Bases loaded no one out. Do they score?
No worries, that was just our best hitter whiffing. No worries, that was just our second best hitter whiffing.
Jesus motherfucking christ on a goddamned motherfucking cracker.
BOTTOM OF THE 4th: KC 3 – NYY 0 (Chavez gets to third with two outs)
And no two out hit. Now hitting 6 for 65 in that situation. Mendoza line looks like Mt. Everest.
Guess it didn’t rain hard enough.
I’m really not enjoying Yankees baseball much this year.
TOP OF THE 6th: KC 3 – NYY 0 (Teixeira passes on an easy out at first in favor of a difficult play at third, everyone is safe)
What the fuck is WRONG with this team?
WTF were you thinking Mark? This team is playing horseshit ball.
BOTTOM OF THE 6th: KC 3 – NYY 0 (Alex leads off with a double)
It looks as if the Yankees are aiming for one of those Everyone Who Participates Wins A Trophy awards at the end-of-season banquet.
TOP OF THE 7th: KC 5 – NYY 0 (2 out, 2 run homer for Franceour off Garcia)
.500 and dropping like a rock. I’m sure Joe’s remedy is going to be more rest.
I can’t watch anymore. Good night all.
Just wondering – if the Yanks finish last, do they have any shot at drafting Andrew Luck? RG3? Any Kentucky hoopster?
BOTTOM OF THE 7th: KC 5 – NYY 0 (Two on, two out for Cano)
Yay – two more chances to strand a runner in scoring position!
Hey, if they are sitting in the rain watching this slop I sure as shit aint’ turning my TV off.
TOP OF THE 8th: KC 6 – NYY 0 (Wild pitch scores 6th run)
Finally found a saving grace for this evening – my plasma big-screen went out and, thank Mickey, I was able to reboot it and solve the problem. The bad news is that it was still tuned to YES.
Hey, at least we’ve got each other. Cause if there is anything less sympathetic than a bunch of Yankee fans bitching about their sorry-ass, boring, horseshit follies team I’d like to know what it is.
Can’t just be a fair weather fan. Need to watch THIS in the rain. Now’s the time is to celebrate any win, not expect to always win.
BOTTOM OF THE 9th: KC 6 – NYY 0 (Teixeira leads off with a double, is stranded)
Are the Yankees trying? I think so. And if so, there’s a good chance they’ll start hitting and snap out of this weird vortex of suck with runners in scoring position. And if not, they don’t make it this year and our Octobers open up for other shit. That would be less fun than usual, but 2008 wasn’t so bad that they couldn’t win the whole damn thing the very next year.
And it’s supposed to rain all week.
