"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Nine Lives

So the Yanks have lost nine straight in Tampa and today David Price will try to make it ten. David Phelps gets the start for the Yanks. I suspect he’ll give them some good innings.

Up to the batters to score some runs.

Two tough loses so far in Florida. Here’s hoping the Yanks “Win one for the Boss”–the ol’ birthday boy.

Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Andruw Jones LF
Russell Martin C
Jayson Nix 3B

Never mind the fire works: Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Happy Fourth Everyone.

Pretty good tennis match between Murray and Ferrer. And Murray wins!

2 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:27 pm

Gosh, it would have been a disaster if Murray lost.

Let's Go YANKEES!

3 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:31 pm

Robbie!

4 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:32 pm

You got ROBbed, Ben Zobrist!

5 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:33 pm

ROBBIE

6 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:38 pm

damn. wish i coulda seen robbie's defensive wizardry.

according to lohud, we claimed darnell mcdonald from the shit sox and will activate him friday, in time to play in boston. chad jennings thinks he'll replace dewayne. is this a Wise move?

7 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:47 pm

Ummm.

Wow.

8 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:48 pm

[6] Huh. I dunno. D-Wise has been playing so well.
I guess Darnell could play LF in Fenway.

9 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:49 pm

Nice, Phelps.

[6] Quick look at numbers and I say no. .271 BA vs. .214 Both OPB about .300

10 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 2:54 pm

yeah, i was surprised at the lohud news of mcdonald/wise. i guess we'll find out...

11 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:01 pm

Darnell has more pop. Not a lot, just more.

Meanwhile: your mission, Mr. Phelps, is to strike out more batters than David Price does...

12 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:06 pm

Thelarmis, the "Mission: Impossible" hemiola is running through my head. I know you like the hemiola.

13 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:08 pm

[12] of course, i love hemiola! mission impossible is just in 5.

14 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:12 pm

Damn!
Need one more "dum" at the end for a hemiola.
And the Yankees need one more hit for a not-no-hitter.

15 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:13 pm

[11] i like it. if you subtract phelps' walks from his k total, they're even.

i'd also like phelps' era to match or better price's. it's close, albeit in waaay fewer innings.

16 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:14 pm

Nice AB by Curtis.

17 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:15 pm

This would be a good time to get our first hit.

18 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:16 pm

[14] yes. one more "dum" would do it! but 5 is cooler : )

don't forget about my drum feature piece "Hi-Five" - it's track 5 on the cd and is 4:42, which adds up to 10, which is 5 in musical speak!

the walk breaks up the perfecto!

19 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:16 pm

now would be a good time for a-rod's first homerun on july 4, 2012.

20 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:18 pm

Nice AB there A-Rod.

21 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:18 pm

Sunuva.
A-Rod has watched a couple of strike threes already today.

22 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:19 pm

apropos of nothing...

carlos ruiz and yadier molina each have 13 dingers already.

23 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:20 pm

[20] do i detect a tad of sarcasm? ; )

hey, i was just in your hometown the other week. really nice there, man!

24 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:23 pm

3 walks and a hbp. but 6 k and no hits.

is phelps "effectively wild"?

25 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:25 pm

7 k's

26 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:26 pm

[18] Yes, "Hi-Five" is very Brubeckian. Or Brubeckesque.

27 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:29 pm

Is Phelps a high K guy in the minors or are the Rays this bad?

28 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:31 pm

[27] He's decent, but not like this.
But we know the Rays are not this bad because they hit Nova hard yesterday.

29 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:32 pm

Oh, dang.
And there goes the no-no and the shutout.

At least this makes it easier to lift him.

30 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:33 pm

If you only watched Yankees/Rays games, you'd never know Sean Rodriguez is a terrible hitter.

31 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:33 pm

I hope we get a hit.

32 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:34 pm

8 k's.

[26] ooh, i'm a big brubeck fan and have been on a kick here lately! (sorry hoppystone, if you're reading!!!)

you do know that "Take Five" was actually written by Paul Desmond? kinda like "Take The 'A' Train" was written by Billy Strayhorn!

btw, the solo in "Hi-Five" was inspired by Steve Smith (my favorite drummer)

33 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:34 pm

Hey, Russell, nice!

Okay, time for Price to give it up now.

34 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:34 pm

Ha! Got him.

35 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:35 pm

sean rodriguez? really?! again.

fuck that guy. (whoever the fuck he is)

36 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:36 pm

Say, Price is throwing a no hitter.

37 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:37 pm

There ya go. Now let's incinerate the shutout.

38 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:38 pm

a hit!

robbie!

39 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:39 pm

[36] false. : )

40 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:41 pm

78 pitches for young phelps.

does he begin the 5th and taken out if anyone reaches base or is he done, so the reliever can begin with a clean slate? i send him out to start the 5th..

41 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:41 pm

Goddam it!

[32] I did not! But I was thinking of "Far More Drums", did he write that?
I love Paul Desmond, anyway.

42 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:41 pm

crap.

43 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:43 pm

[40] Yeah, I think he should start the fifth, for the simple reason that he's pitching really well and there's no way we get five innings of relief that good. Let's see...

Yep!

44 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:44 pm

On the other hand, he may have reached the end of his rope...

45 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:46 pm

Good job, Phelps.

46 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:49 pm

Hemiola?
Damn! This group is so fucking literate!
How about a link to a modern example....?

47 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:50 pm

[41] nice!

yes, Brubeck wrote "Far More Drums", also in 5. it was on the follow-up album, "Time Further Out". great stuff!

sadly, Joe Morello passed last year. he was sooo incredible. and hilarious. i have a small tribute for him that will be on my 3rd cd, so it'll be awhile before it's released. the portion for him, is a somewhat short, unaccompanied melodic drum solo over a foot ostinato in 5.

48 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:50 pm

I guess Phelps isn't stretched out?

49 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:50 pm

Oh fuck. I can't watch this. I'm just not in the mood for chess (= bullpen roulette).

50 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:51 pm

Oh joy, four innings of mix'n'match.

51 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:51 pm

their 8 & 9 hitters...

rapada's just setting up the triple play!

52 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:51 pm

but...but...but...

we have - Chad Qualls!!!

53 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:51 pm

My comment is awaiting moderation. It includes a four letter word beginning with 'f', but aside from that I have no idea why.

54 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:53 pm

Mixandmatch is horribly boring, tedious baseball when it works. When it doesn't, it's just miserable entertainment

55 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:54 pm

Way to pay attention Epply.

56 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:56 pm

[47] My favorite is "Bru's Boogie Woogie", even though it's time isn't far out.
Well, besides "Blue Rondo". But on "Further Out" that's my favorite.

57 yankintexas   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:57 pm

[53] That and it makes Girardi feel important. That must count for something.

58 yankintexas   ~  Jul 4, 2012 3:58 pm

That was suppose to be directed at Mattpat11 (i.e. post 54)

59 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:01 pm

[58] Yeah, my f-bomb got moderated in and changed the numbers. My bad. (And thanks AB.)

60 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:01 pm

[48] no, he isn't and that was known. he was right about at his pitch count for the day...

61 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:06 pm

miles davis' version of brubeck's "in your own sweet way" on the 1956 Workin' album, is beautiful.

as far as the series of "Time" albums, i gotta say, the last one - "Time Changes" - might be the best!

62 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:08 pm

fat liar ties it up in oaktown w/ his 22nd. i can't stand that fat f**k.

63 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:09 pm

I wish we could just have Jeter and Curtis bat.

64 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:10 pm

capitan with an oppo field single.

shocking!

65 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:14 pm

Damn, he is tough.

66 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:15 pm

Sigh. Looks like the offense took today off.

67 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:16 pm

David Price hits free agency this winter.

68 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:17 pm

price matched phelps in k's...

69 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:18 pm

[67] damn! i didn't realize that. surprised he hasn't been mentioned all over the place, like greinke & hamels...

70 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:29 pm

Wow!!!
That was unexpected, but welcome!

71 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:29 pm

Yay, Mark!

72 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:31 pm

Oh, very cool.
Okay, either Price is weakening or our guys are figuring him out.

73 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:38 pm

Oh, man, that is bull.

74 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:39 pm

Thelarmis, A-Rod stole third, but they called him back because of Umpire's Interference! Then the fly ball is just an out instead of an RBI.

Wow, that really sucks.

75 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:42 pm

We was robbed. Dang.

76 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:46 pm

[74] WHAT?!?! oh no. and just before i was thinking about how much i love the steal of third. a-rod is still listed as stealing the base on the box score.

total bollocks!

77 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:49 pm

[76] Well, he stole third again after the Jones fly.

I looked up the rule, and it's not very explicit. But the umpire didn't do anything on the play. The catcher backed into him and when he cocked his arm it bumped the ump. It doesn't seem like that should be umpire's interference. (Otherwise it would be a really good way to stop another team's running game!)

78 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:51 pm

Dammit!

79 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:51 pm

Ouch.
That looks like the ballgame there, huh?

80 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:51 pm

[77] double frick.

81 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:52 pm

motherfucker.

we're being swept...

82 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:53 pm

Time for the big comeback against that knucklehead with the bow and arrow.

Fuck this. Yanks are winning.

83 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:58 pm

[82] alex? alex belth?!

is that you, haha ; )

84 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 4:59 pm

The Sox went ahead, but the A's have tied it up on doubles by both of their Brandons.

Brandon Moss is an ex-Sox, which is nice. Oooh, he also just snagged a line drive off A-Gon's bat. Now they will play "God Bless America". It's all Steinbrenner's fault.

85 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:02 pm

There you go, Chavie.

86 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:02 pm

Oh, DJ...

Here comes the game-tying dinger from Grandy.

89 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:04 pm

[86] no, i was joking about your optimism! : )

i need to scoot. super late to a 4th of july shindig w/ my girl's fam...

90 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:05 pm

Come on Kyle, you owe us. Big meatball here.

91 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:06 pm

Okay, let's go HEAVY HITTERS!

92 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:06 pm

89) LOL.

Man, that was close...

93 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:07 pm

Okay, two base runners.
This is good, we have a real chance.

But yeah, thelarmis, I would be more sanguine if Belth were doing his Gloomy Gus routine.

94 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:08 pm

I'm a little late to a party myself, but I want to see this half inning...

95 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:08 pm

Let's GO YANKEES!

96 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:08 pm

double steal!!!

97 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:08 pm

I sense a bases loaded for A Rod spot...

98 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:09 pm

Okay, Alex GET THE BALL IN THE FUCKING AIR.

99 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:09 pm

Oakland takes the lead on a Crispy triple and a single.

And hooray for our good friend Farns!!! Load'em up, babe. Here we go...

100 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:10 pm

I'm not greedy, I'll take a walk. A single would be better, a double would be awesome...

Slider? Or go back up and in with the heater? Which one of these...?

So lucky....LOL. We. Will. Take. It.

106 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:12 pm

Yep, Alex swung at ball 3 for sure. That's okay, teeing it up. Here comes the big one...
Full count. Good ol' Farns!

I bet Kyle throws this one to the backstop. Nope, but he walked in the run!

107 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:12 pm

I'll take that.

108 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:13 pm

Okay, let's get more and then get The Hammer swinging.

[121] yeah, what he said.

126 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:20 pm

Man, this dude has a nasty slider. Two horrid swings on it from Robbie and Swish.

127 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:20 pm

GO YANKS!!!

129 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:21 pm

Dag and then throws that one by him. Suckered. Cut down on that hack, Conan.

130 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:21 pm

[114] The TB broadcast I'm watching on Extra Innings. I mean WOWZA!

131 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:21 pm

Three soft ones in a row. Now the heat, yes?

132 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:21 pm

Yes, but missed. So now back to the off speed...

133 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:22 pm

He slows his delivery down just slightly when he goes off-speed...

134 thelarmis   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:22 pm

[130] is there a name?!

135 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:23 pm

Unlike Swish. It was really not close. Almost like he decided he was swinging.

136 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:23 pm

I guess that's why his OBP is so low this year.

137 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:23 pm

FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm screaming BALL 4 before Swisher even swings.

138 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:23 pm

Dag, that first pitch slider is the best pitch Jones will see...

139 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:24 pm

[136] Really. I don't like the new aggressive Swisher. I want the old guy back.

140 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:24 pm

Nice cut on the third pitch. Missed a cookie. Just high enough for Jones to miss. Now off-speed.

141 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:25 pm

Hang in, Andruw.

142 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:25 pm

145 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:26 pm

147 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:27 pm

I've got the Tampa Bay broadcast on. Please show her again.

Then way late. Way late. Why bother with the slow stuff? Just pound him.

149 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:27 pm

I think Joe should have pinch hit for Russell here. It's like a pitcher batting.

150 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:27 pm

No way Russ gets a hit here...

151 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:27 pm

Redemption time?

152 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:28 pm

Seeing these Yankees (ARod, Swisher, Martin) swing ar bad pitches just doesn't look like the Yankees. TB has this team spooked.

160 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:35 pm

Strikes, dammit.

161 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:35 pm

D-Rob is juiced up. Settle down, bud.

162 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:36 pm

That is just a brutal walk. No way around it. Brutal.

163 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:36 pm

Come on, Dave, attack. Nails.

164 RIYank   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:37 pm

Sean Rod, you are a NAIL.

165 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:38 pm

You know what? That is 100% cock-n-balls by The Hammer. Throws him three straight off-speed pitches. Damn. Now up to Soriano not to fuggin blow it.

How bout a couple few insurance runs?

166 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:40 pm

Just got in to see the Yanks take back the lead (Thanks Farnsy), and DRob settle down.

Insurance time.

167 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:43 pm

Nice crunch by the Cap'n

168 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:43 pm

Insurance please.

169 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:44 pm

Jetes...

170 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:45 pm

Holy crud, the A's beat the Sox again.

171 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:46 pm

The Rays have a guy named Badenhop warming up. Good thing he's not an infielder.

172 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:46 pm

Howell owned Grandy there.

173 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:52 pm

Jeeze, there will be at least eleven pitchers used in this relatively low scoring game. Joe and Joe know how to wring it out.

Arod power!

174 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:53 pm

Damn, no insurance.

175 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:55 pm

So this is A-Rod anymore? Dribbler up the middle.

176 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:57 pm

Alright hold on to your shirt tails, boys and girls.

177 The Hawk   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:57 pm

Watching A Rod is kind of sad

178 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:57 pm

Fitting that this classy place has a Hooters ad behind home plate.

179 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:58 pm

Money time.

180 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jul 4, 2012 5:59 pm

That last one was a strike.

181 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 4, 2012 6:00 pm

SORI!

182 rbj   ~  Jul 4, 2012 6:01 pm

Yes!

I guess the key to this series was not scoring first.

183 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 4, 2012 6:01 pm

And exhale. Thank the HP Ump on Grandy for that Win.

184 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jul 4, 2012 6:01 pm

Hallelujah! Big win, trend is reversed.

185 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 4, 2012 6:02 pm

You can put that in the "untucked" column.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday America. Gotta go to work.
