[2] War expected. With eskimos.

4 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 12:57 pm

for some reason, the espn scoreboard says this game is on tbs. it is not. if it was, i would upset about the rain delay and the fact that i have to get ready for work now...

GO YANKS!!!

5 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:00 pm

Charge it, Alex. Yikes! Terrible play.

6 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:00 pm

DH him! ; )

7 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:04 pm

Go Hiroki!

8 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:09 pm

1st inning score truck delivery.

9 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:10 pm

Way to go, Mr. Swishie.

10 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:10 pm

Teix! 2 run job. Huzzah!

11 RIYank   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:11 pm

Wow.
Pretty hitting and green my eyes.

12 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:14 pm

ooh, fuck yeah!

i think that's back-to-back games with doubles for the captain. and tex has been mashing. me likey!

hope hiro pitches a gem!

and, of course, if alex were dh'ing, he'd have hit a solo shot (and no error). jus' joshin'...

13 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:15 pm

[11] mine eyes blue.

14 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:16 pm

Holy crap. Yanks fell out of bed today ready to mash.

15 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:16 pm

TONES FOR JONES BONES!!!

16 RIYank   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:17 pm

So the 3+ streak and Rob's hitting streak are both taken care of in the first inning.

17 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:18 pm

[15] btw, if someone can figure out that reference without googling, i'd be very impressed.

(hoppystone - if you're reading, you'll obviously know it immediately!)

18 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:18 pm

[16] love it!

19 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:19 pm

our line is:

Fahrenheit 451

20 RIYank   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:20 pm

[17] I'm going to challenge you for the obscure reference title in this thread though.

21 RIYank   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:21 pm

[19] Ooooh.
The flashpoint.

22 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:21 pm

In a sane world Robbie's shot would have been ruled an E7. But that's just me. : )

23 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:23 pm

[20] not fair, i asked first! plus, i have to hop in the shower, so i'm exempt! : )

24 RIYank   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:42 pm

I have a plan. We get a big enough lead to use Chad Qualls, but then (and this is the really brilliant part of my plan) don't use Chad Qualls. Just watch how well this plan works.

25 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:45 pm

So Swisher has struck out looking 3 times in the last 2 games. WTF Nick! Swing the bat.

26 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:45 pm

Holy Shite! Ouch! Where's his help?

27 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 1:48 pm

[24] i love it when a plan comes together.

28 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:05 pm

must get through one more inning, before the sky begins to cry...

29 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:09 pm

bottom of the order gettin' it done!

30 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:13 pm

uh-oh, bases loaded/1-out...

31 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:14 pm

Maybe Swish is better off striking out looking. Damn!

32 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:18 pm

A double for that? FFS. That's a single and an E8. Oi.

33 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:20 pm

that swisher double play was double plus ungood and now hiro gives up the leadoff double.

not that i'm worried. but more runs are always nice. let's make the game official!

34 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:21 pm

[32] wise not doing well out there?

35 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:24 pm

5 solid innings for Kuroda in the books.

36 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:24 pm

official.

hiro!

37 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:25 pm

[34] He got struck betwixt and between a line drive to left center. If he played it right it just would have been a routine single. Instead he butchered it into a "double."

38 thelarmis   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:27 pm

[37] acha. thanks.

alright, i'm out. 7 hours of drum teaching ahead!

GO YANKS!!!

39 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:32 pm

Is it raining up in the BX yet? Here in midtown it's getting mighty dark.

40 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:39 pm

These fucking yahoos at the game today are giving Alex a helluva time. Get a grip people.

41 RIYank   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:44 pm

Alex Rodriguez' Blue Period.

42 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:48 pm

A 2 out rbi for Wise. Nice.

43 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:50 pm

And the Captain laces a line drive single to right field.

44 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:52 pm

Very dark now, thunder, rain is a coming to NYC.

45 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:53 pm

Another caught looking for Swisher. That's 4 in two days. He needs a break.

46 RIYank   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:53 pm

Crazy crashing thunder here (in Providence), snapping lightning.

47 rbj   ~  Jul 18, 2012 2:58 pm

Rain delayed start, and skipping out of work a bit early, I get to see some Yankee baseball today.

48 bags   ~  Jul 18, 2012 3:04 pm

Bonkers rain and thunder in midtown right now. Looks like the end of the world.

49 bags   ~  Jul 18, 2012 3:07 pm

Hail. No locusts though.

50 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 18, 2012 3:10 pm

Welp, that was seven strong for Hiroki. Hopefully, the pen gets six more outs when they continue.

51 rbj   ~  Jul 18, 2012 3:11 pm

Well, a little baseball.

53 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 18, 2012 5:26 pm

(15) You know I got that one, thelarmis!
Sunny with 90% humidity here this morning..the whole world is bakin this summer. Except for London of course, site if the Summer Olympics..

Yanks on a roll, the division should be easy to wrap up by early Sept.
