as crazy as it seems, the lineup actually kinda makes sense tonight...

i guess you could flip-flop ichiro & casey, but whatevs...


2 Capital Yank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 3:19 pm

With the Chief pitching, let's hope the score truck makes it past border patrol and up to Toronto.

3 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:24 pm

Nice, Freddy.

4 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:28 pm

Robbie swung at ball four so that he'd have a chance to rip one up the middle.

5 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:31 pm

I hate the circus but I liked that play.

6 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:32 pm

Gift run!

7 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:38 pm

More presents.
Let's make this Hanukkah.

8 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:38 pm

Casey McGehee << Mark Teixeira.

9 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:43 pm

That's why you should score more than one flippin' run when you have the bases loaded and 1 out. grrrrrrrr......

10 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:46 pm

A 2-1 lead seems safe.

11 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:46 pm

Asdrubal took Laptop yard in the first, 1-0 Spiders.

12 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:52 pm

[11] I read an article today about about the Sox loss last night. This was the part that made me laugh. "Lackey was so busted up after the latest defeat that he was strutting around the clubhouse with a can of Bud Light in each hand, or what is known as “double-fisting” on every college campus in the history of mankind."

13 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:53 pm

Well done, Blue Jays. Well done.

14 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:53 pm

Well, waddyaknow. That shift against Teix got us a run one batter later!

15 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:56 pm

[12] Yeah, everyone is talking about that article. And the thing is, Joe Haggerty, who reported it, isn't a Sox beat writer at all. He's kind of a fill-in for Sean McAdam. Good scoop for Haggerty.

16 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 6:58 pm

[10] But 3-1 is better.

17 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:06 pm

I just noticed that Kay isn't in the booth. Doesn't go to Toronto, ever.

18 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:08 pm

[17] What's the point of being a foreign country if you can't exclude Michael Kay.

19 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:09 pm

Hold the fort. Going to dinner. : ) Go Yankees!

20 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:13 pm

[18] Hm, good point. But is Canada a foreign country? I guess technically it is, but I just consider Canadians to be very unpatriotic Americans. (They love that.)

21 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:22 pm

Not good.

[20] I tend to think of Canada as our attic.

22 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:23 pm

Huge K.
Well, maybe. We shall see.

23 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:24 pm

[21] Yes, but it's not warm like an attic.

Yay, Fred! Not bad.

24 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:28 pm

Buchholz 53 pitches through 5 innings, 1-1 game at the Jake. Or I guess it's Progressive Field.

25 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:39 pm

[23] Drafty old attic that doesn't keep the cold out in winter.

26 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:47 pm

Nice quick 4 pitch inning.

27 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:48 pm

[26] Wow, no kidding? Yeah, I went to mix a gin and tonic, and got back and I'd missed the whole thing! I mean, the whole half.

28 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:57 pm

Did Kenny and Coney say why Fred was done? I had the Jays' crew on.

29 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 7:58 pm

Okay, they don't know. Interesting. Interesting.
This may work out, however...

30 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:02 pm

Is it just that Joe is in one of those moods? He just wants to play a little chess?

31 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:02 pm

Wait, now I go for a vodka tonic and Freddy is done?

32 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:07 pm

Heh, Rob was like, "Relax, man, I have it."

Buchholz at 77 pitches through seven innings, two runs (1 earned). I bet he gets a CG.

33 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:10 pm

Welcome to the game, Mr. Delabar!

34 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:12 pm

[32] And double fists beer afterwards.

35 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:15 pm


36 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:17 pm

[34] He's actually one of the very few players the fans haven't turned on. (Even though he did play golf with Beckett that time...)

Ouch. The Jays suck at fielding.

37 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:17 pm

Hey, I was going to make a soccer joke, but Coney beat me to it! That's why I love Coney.

38 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:18 pm


And Wheels Martin!

39 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:20 pm

Seriously, that was a superb slide by Russell. And as Coney says, a catcher doesn't wanna bowl over the catcher. Good man, Russell.

40 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:27 pm

I'm really happy to see Joba back.

Btw..professional baseball players are large men, generally in very good shape as athletes..why on earth would they drink Bud or Bud Lite? Surely not for the taste, and being very weak beer, men of that size would need to drink two six-packs to even feel a buzz..are these guys just a) ignorant of real beer existing in the world or b)just a bunch of jocko d-bags who think skulling cans of Bud Lite is really "partying"? As a baseball lover and beer fanatic, this topic really bothers me.

41 oncewent3for2   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:28 pm

Thinking about the ball that seemed to be lost in the lights.
Wonder if it's possible for a stadium operator to dim the lights on the first base or third base side according to the trajectory of the batted ball.
Not practical, I know... just would be cool to be capable of minimizing flukish occurrences.

42 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:29 pm

Buchholz 89 pitches through 8, still 2 R, 1 ER 2 H, 0 BB, 5 SO, 1 HR. He's a lock for the CG.

43 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:30 pm

[40] This is John Lackey we're talking about. He's a philistine. I promise you that Derek Jeter does not drink Bud, let alone Bud lite.

44 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:33 pm

[40] And it's Boston, which is home of Sam Adams. Unless I'm in a dive bar, I don't touch Bud.
Glad we got those two extra runs.

45 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:34 pm

By stealing both bases, Goss raised the Jays' win expectancy by 1%. If he had been caught, he would have dropped their chances by 3%.
Huh, I guess that's approximately the ratio of the average stolen base. I would have thought those were low-value bases, compared to the potential cost. But I guess the win expectancy was pretty low.

Rising, though...

46 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:36 pm

Gose, not Goss, sorry. But that was a big play, dropping the Jays' chances from 8% to 3%.

47 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:37 pm

[43] Jeter must have a well stocked wine cellar for when he's "entertaining".

A-Rod likely has a good selection of juice boxes in his fridge.

48 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:37 pm

[45] Dude can fly though, easily stole those two.

49 OldYanksFan   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:38 pm

Looks like O's, TB and Sox are all Winners tonight.

50 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:38 pm

Maybe this will be a turning point for D-Rob. Good outing (except for the BB).

51 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:39 pm

[49] You figure Clay will shut down the Spiders in the ninth, huh?

You can't be worried about the Red Sox. I mean, you can't.

52 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:44 pm

What??? Did Kenny just say that Kay would be there tomorrow?

Oooooh, swishalicious. A booming double RBI. Lovely.

53 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:46 pm

Jorge at the Olympics? Cool.

54 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:46 pm

Buchholz finishes his CG. Superb outing for him. Under team control until 2016, cheap.

55 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:48 pm

[53] If you had $100,000,000, you'd be there too, right? (I wonder if huge sums of money enables you to avoid traffic -- it's supposed to be hellish this summer.)

56 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:50 pm

[55] So cool! Always amazes be at the lack of imagination many ballplayers. You make $20million a year and take your kids, can literally go ANYwhere on the planet and take your family to Disney? And then drink Bud?

I'm Mr. CrankyOKJazz this morning, sorry..

57 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:51 pm

The Werewolf howls!

58 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:51 pm

[56] Where would you go? (When you aren't cran

59 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:52 pm

ky, I mean.)

[Sorry, my keyboard is flaky.)

60 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:52 pm

[55] Yup, I'd be there. Serena has the golden slam now, right?

61 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:54 pm

[58] With unlimited funds? Everywhere! Even on my limited budget was lucky enough to take the Jazz Kids to the Great Wall of China, easy flight from here.

Love this Singleton & Cone Twitter talk going on now. Not cranky anymore :)

62 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:57 pm

[60] Career, yeah. In fact she has it in both singles and doubles! (I believe she is the only player ever to do this.)

She was scary against Sharapova. I can't remember ever seeing such a one-sided match in a final.

63 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 8:57 pm

Oh goody, another Jays pitcher used.

64 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:00 pm

Hey, double-digits, so Hanukkah [7] for thelarmis!

[61] Nice. But everywhere would be exhausting.

But I agree, I also am happy to have taken my kids great places. (Uluru, for one.)

65 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:00 pm

[62] That beats Stefi. Not bad for a kid from Compton.

66 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:04 pm

[64] Wow, Uluru looks amazing! I want to do an Indonesia, north coast of Australia trip at some point. This damn thing called "work" keeps interrupting my jazz and travel habits. RIYank, unless your taxes have gone up in RI due to Schilling's Folly, how about a donation to the "Jazz Fund"?

67 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:05 pm

[65] Stef and Serena are my two favorite tennis players, ever.

68 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:08 pm

[66] Yeah, that would be a great trip. I haven't been to Western Australia, or even the top near New Guinea, even though I lived there for two years. Perth is closer to Djakarta than it is to Sydney.
Big, sunburned country.

Heh. I figure they should be taxing the millionaires to pay off the Schilling debt -- doesn't that make sense? But I've already made a Jazz Fund contribution! Just ask Eric...

69 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:09 pm

Cone is exactly right, it's a very stupid rule. They should do away with the balk rule entirely.

70 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:10 pm

Also, I forgot to mention: in Australia you can drink really good wine for pennies. It's amazing. Americans think of Australians as beer-drinkers, but beer is a very distant second, in fact.

71 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:15 pm

[68] Was amazed reading about Schilling's company. Some venture capitalist took one look and zipped closed his pocket book right away rather than invest.

[70] No wine for me, allergic.. :(

72 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:16 pm

About time.

73 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:16 pm

[71] Ohhhhh. My condolences! Allergic to grapes?

Well, yeah, it would have been a very, very bad investment. Oy.

Okay, good work Cody.

Good game, team.

74 rbj   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:18 pm

Good night all.

75 RIYank   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:18 pm

Damn, 5 RBI for Ichiro tonight, I didn't realize that.

76 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 10, 2012 9:19 pm

[73] Red Wine in particular. One glass = vicious migraine.

Go Go Yankees! Good night/morning everyone!

77 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 11, 2012 3:22 am

[66] Uluru IS fucking amazing. There is really no way to imagine the scale of it even when you are standing right next to it. We didn't climb up it because the Aborigines believe it is disrespectful.
