"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

What Did I Miss?

 

Due to a lapse in judgement by my dumb ass the site was out-of-service for a good portion of the day. I apologize. However, we’re back and what did we miss? The Rocket Rides Again; Michael Pineda picked-up for drunk driving.

Hell, at least Tex is back.

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Curtis Granderson CF
Eric Chavez 3B
Raul Ibanez LF
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Chris Stewart C

It’s Fab Five Freddy.

Never mind the moron behind this blog’s curtain: Let’s Go Yank-ees!

The site was fine, except for a short while early this morning. Don't worry, Arneson has your back! You choose your friends well, fortunately for your "dumb ass" :-)

Never mind the DNS look-up, just win!

2 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 6:33 pm

I have no patience for drunk driving

3 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 6:46 pm

That Pineda trade keeps getting better.

4 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:00 pm

[3] I have every confidence that Pineda will never pitch for the Yankees, so the silver lining is that I can rationalize that his DUI does not *really* reflect on the organization.

5 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:01 pm

Also the deaths of Phyllis Diller and Tony Scott.

6 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:04 pm

[2] Just out of curiosity: name two things you do have patience for.

7 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:11 pm

Ho-hum.

8 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:12 pm

It's too bad Pineda wasn't "too big" to drink and drive. Oh, never mind. Yay Jeter!

9 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:12 pm

Hey look, Jeter tied Nap Lajoie...again!

10 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:12 pm

Maybe Derek gets to 4000 this year.

11 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:12 pm

Wake up Kay. You get more excited about 350 feet fly balls to center.

12 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:16 pm

Jeter hits, Swish walks, things are as they oughta be. Rob should homer, according to plan.

13 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:17 pm

Tough luck.

14 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:18 pm

Damn, nice play by Beckham.

15 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:18 pm

Oh, you're kidding. Dang.

16 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:18 pm

Oooh, looks like Beckham may have bent it.

17 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:21 pm

Commendably unselfish.

18 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:21 pm

Nice ab by Tex.

19 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:22 pm

Alright Mark.

20 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:25 pm

[6] Puppies. And fresh baked cookies

21 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:25 pm

Hm..Jeter has an outside shot of the all time runs scored record. he should at least end up with 2000, top 5 or 6.

22 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:25 pm

Another nice ab. But a double play gets Floyd off the hook...

23 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:25 pm

Keep shitting the bed there, Floyd. I suggest serving up a single here or maybe an extra base hit.

24 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:27 pm

[20] I will definitely remember that.

[22] AB is always good for a reverse jinx.

25 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:27 pm

Out, productive.

26 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:27 pm

Another run. But I want more.

27 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:28 pm

Kenny on the 1-0 pitch:

"Even if he makes a good pitch here, down and away strike, the count is still 1-1."

Sitting in the booth with Michael Kay kills brain cells.

28 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:28 pm

This really has been a morally virtuous inning so far. Now, if Ichiro can pull off a bunt single...

29 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:29 pm

[25] Don't tell me: you're constructing an index...

30 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:29 pm

Meh.

31 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:30 pm

[28] You know what? As long as he doesn't try to do too much with it, I'll be satisfied.

32 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:30 pm

Disappointing.

33 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:30 pm

Selfish bastard.

34 Chyll Will   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:35 pm

I've got patience for brownies and ice cream.

35 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:36 pm

Nice try, old friend.

36 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:40 pm

[29] yes, for my book The Proper Approach: Playing the Game the Right Way.

37 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:42 pm

Nice work, Dunn. Much thanks.

38 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:42 pm

I'm surprised Stewart threw through with Wise on 3B.

39 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:43 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, Adam Dunn.

40 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:45 pm

[38] Threw through.
Why's Wise standing there?
Dunn done.

41 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:49 pm

Cripes, that swing by Cano looked like something out of a Cricket match.

42 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:51 pm

Doing less with more.

43 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:51 pm

Rob Thompson is DONE as a third base coach. For fuck's sake.

44 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:52 pm

Good lord.
Not close.

I wonder if we need a new 3B coach.

45 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:52 pm

Oy, not even close. Hit right in front of the guy.

46 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:55 pm

I'm less bothered by trying to force the action there with two outs. If Rios makes a bad throw, Cano is probably safe. he made a perfect throw.

47 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:58 pm

My mind can't see that name and not call him "Diane"

48 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 7:59 pm

Fred is charmed tonight.

49 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:02 pm

The Red Sox just fired their pitching coach (Bob McClure).

50 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:05 pm

God bless you, Fred.

51 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:09 pm

Kay is so bored he's retelling stories from earlier in the game.

52 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:11 pm

[51] Patience...

Oh, uh, good, we got the starter out early... ? Hard to be happy about getting someone other than Floyd. But it may pay off tomorrow and Wed., I guess.

53 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:27 pm

Cone, McDowell, Johnson, Clemens

54 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:28 pm

Next stop, Eddie Murray.

55 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:29 pm

Jeter pulls the all again. Me likey!

56 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:29 pm

53) Drabek?

57 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:29 pm

[53] yeah the fifth one is what kills me. Nice unplay, Kevin.

58 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:30 pm

55)...pulls the ball...

59 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:32 pm

Drabek! I forgot he was on the Yankees.

60 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:35 pm

59) He's the tricky one also because he played on the Yankees before winning a CYA. i just can't remember in what year he won it.

61 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:36 pm

[60] I want to say 1990, so I think you're right.

We could all look it up, but I don't care that much

62 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:38 pm

Worst possible outcome. Damn.

63 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:38 pm

61) it's more fun not looking, anyway.

Drat, Teix.

64 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:38 pm

As crap satellite feed is going out. Heavy rain here. Good night all.

65 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:38 pm

Agonizing pace to this game. And only a 3 run lead. Not so good.

66 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:40 pm

Immoral hitting.
Probably tried to do too much.

67 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:41 pm

80% win expectancy.
Comfortable, but it's hard to feel too comfortable with Fred.

68 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:42 pm

No, sorry, 78%. I actually thought this was the fifth inning. Gawd.

69 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:44 pm

68) yeah, it's hard to keep track. It's like they're plaing the game near a blakhole.

70 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:44 pm

Holy Jesus this is still only the fourth inning?

71 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:45 pm

Does Fred have magic tonight, or do the White Sox just suck? Must be magic, because Youkalis and Konerko are baffled, and they don't suck.

72 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:46 pm

[69] Speaking of which, I miss Gritner.

73 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:48 pm

Slick job, Freddy.

74 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:49 pm

72) I was hoping you'd make that connection. Oh, Space-Time paradox, when (or whould I ask where?) will your wrist heal?

75 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:50 pm

This Filthy Freddie start reminds me of an old baseball video game my neighbor and I used to play. RBI Baseball, maybe, early 90's. I'd pitch big looping curveballs that never landed anywhere near the strike zone. He couldn't resist swinging all the time and striking out.

76 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:56 pm

[74] Brett thinks it's funny that you still believe in the where/when distinction. He says his wrist will have been about to heal everywhen.

77 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:58 pm

Definitely looks foul.

78 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:58 pm

!!!!!!!

79 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 8:59 pm

Fair or foul, and looked fair to me, how can that possibly be overruled? Who had a better view than the 3b ump who called it fair initially?

80 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:00 pm

Yeah, I dunno. I have never seen that. But Michael and Kenny don't seem surprised.

81 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:00 pm

The look on that coaches face right now is hilarious. Awwwww, nutzo.

82 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:00 pm

Just Foul. Too bad.

83 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:01 pm

77) it looked to me like it bounced in fair territory then landed barely in foul territory---seems that it almost had to cross over the bag, no?

84 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:01 pm

Oh, no! They should be putting a black rectangle over Mark Parent's mouth during those shots.

85 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:02 pm

Dramatic shift in win expectancy...i expect.

86 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:02 pm

[83] It bounced just fair, then just foul. It could have crossed just before third, or just after.

Anyway, I think it's time for some bullpen activity...

87 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:03 pm

Karma

88 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:03 pm

This has all the makings of a frustrating fucking game.

89 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:04 pm

[85] 27% vs. 17%, for the White Sox.

Hm, but that is a bigger swing, right there.

Yeah, Fred has turned into a pumpkin.

90 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:05 pm

Shot of jeter trying to stay awake in the field, just before Youk's laser past Chavez.

91 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:05 pm

This is one scary ab by Dunn here.

92 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:06 pm

Who's the sixth inning guy? Please tell me it's not Joba.

93 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:06 pm

[92] Lowe?

94 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:07 pm

But it's irrelevant, because this is (believe it or not) the fifth inning.

95 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:07 pm

Not single shot of the pen, yet.

96 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:10 pm

[94] I was assuming that Garcia gets out of this and the game goes to next inning. Nevertheless, the distorted flow of time is throwing me off.

97 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:10 pm

Finally some stirring. Eppley and Rapada. About 5 minutes too late, Joe.

98 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:11 pm

[97] Eight minutes too late, see [86]!

99 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:12 pm

Yeah, Kay, you could make the case that Konerko is a HOFer, but it would be a silly case.

100 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:12 pm

And now the White Sox are over .5 win expectancy. Even though they aren't winning... they're winning.

101 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:13 pm

[100] We have reached the point where all outcomes have converged.

102 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:14 pm

Cody.
Hmmmm.

I'd go with D-Rob.

103 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:14 pm

I have zero faith in getting out of this inning with the lead.

104 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:18 pm

Run expectancy for this situation is 1.6 runs. So you'd be happy to get out with a tie...

105 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:19 pm

Not smart. Eric should have gone home.

106 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:19 pm

Wonderful...binderball here already in the fifth inning.

107 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:19 pm

Oh, boy. Get one more out, have the good guys score about 6 runs in the top half. And D-Lowe can go four scoreless. Easy peasy.

108 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:19 pm

Oh, god.

I can't watch this. Mattpat, let me know if they start baking some puppies or something. I'm not going to watch bullpen roulette.

109 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:20 pm

[105] I was thinking the same thing. Was he greedy trying to get two, or maybe he felt he didn't have a clean throw home?

110 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:21 pm

No idea why my comment is awaiting moderation. Is it because I typed "Oh" followed by the name of the deity?

Anyway, I don't have the patience for bullpen roulette. So I would like Mattpat to come get me if there are baked puppies, or anything like that.

111 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:21 pm

I now have two comments awaiting moderation. I have no idea why they are.

112 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:22 pm

Is it the term "bullpen roulette"?

113 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:22 pm

I hate that asshole.

114 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:22 pm

Yes! I know what's triggering the Moderation. I will describe the phrase. It's a two-word phrase. The first word is the word for the area where relief pitchers hang out. The second is a popular casino game with a wheel.
Go figure.

115 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:23 pm

All my comments are getting held up in moderation.

I'm done. Later guys.

116 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:25 pm

Bases loaded. The guy on third has got to be about 15 feet off the bag when the ball is hit. Eric's momentum is going backwards when he backhands it. There is almost no way he had play at home there. My 2 cents.

117 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:25 pm

And now here's Joba to blow things up. Wonderful.

118 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:26 pm

Hurray. Gasoline time.

119 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:26 pm

Is Girardi brain dead?

120 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:31 pm

Gad. I just had the Chicago feed on for two seconds and heard something that turned my stomach. Easily the most annoying asinine announcers on the planet.

121 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:32 pm

The game was unbearable enough without MIXING AND MATCHING.

122 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:33 pm

Is Jeter seeing a new super model or something? Holy smokes!

123 seamus   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:33 pm

chasing eddy murray!

124 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:33 pm

You know, if the Yankees could just bat Derek Jeter like Bugs Bunny in the classic cartoon, they would score a lot more runs and Jeter would get to 4000 hits much, much faster.

125 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:34 pm

[152] He wants to pass Eddie tonight

126 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:35 pm

[121] Let's just hope it doesn't involving ordering anything from Melky's website...

127 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:35 pm

[126] was for [122]

128 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:36 pm

[125] I love future optimism.

129 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:36 pm

Jesus Christ, this is one of the worst games I can imagine. It looks like little league.

130 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:37 pm

[128] Space-time paradox has been a theme tonight....

131 seamus   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:37 pm

it's interesting that their reliever has thrown 65 pitches in the 6th inning. that's all. just interesting.

132 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:38 pm

[126] Bite your tongue. That would be friggin' disaster.

133 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:39 pm

A walk is good Robbie. No swinging at ball 4.

134 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:40 pm

[132] I know, I know. Come on, y'all know that I'm the biggest Jeter apologist around. The tedium of the game is bringing out blasphemy.

135 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:42 pm
136 seamus   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:43 pm

phew. i'll take that.

137 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:43 pm

Phew. If it was still 1st and 2nd that would have been a disaster. Double play maybe.

138 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:45 pm

[135] That cracks me up every time. My wife asked why I was listening to the Elecrtric Light Parade from Disneyworld.

139 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:45 pm

[135] God, that's a horrible rendition. Sounds like a bad ring tone on acid.

140 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:46 pm

[139] Sorry, I was in a hurry. I'll try better next time, which should be in another inning or two, the way things are going.

141 seamus   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:47 pm

[139] OMG, i didn't listen until i read your post and i kinda love it.

142 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:48 pm

PH McGehee for Chavez? This is crazy stupid.

143 Chyll Will   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:49 pm

I have patience for brownies and ice cream.

144 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:50 pm

Go Irish!

145 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:50 pm

[142] Crazy...like a fox!

146 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:51 pm

Girardi made sure he sat Chavez for two games while the guy was red hot. Now he's cold.

147 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:52 pm

Is Girardi lucky or does he just make some many moves that he's bound to step in shit occasionally?

148 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:53 pm

Sorry, "so many"

149 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:54 pm

[145] The downside, though, is now Chavez is no longer in the field.

What, Joba is back? Seriously?

150 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:54 pm

[147] The binder cannot fail, it can only be failed.

151 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:56 pm

Well there's goes Beckham's 5 for 80 streak or whatever the hell it was. Unfuckingbelievable.

152 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:56 pm

Yeah, Joba looks like he's come all the way back from shoulder surgery and separating his foot from his leg.

153 seamus   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:56 pm

joba sucks so bad.

154 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:56 pm

Joba is toast. That was a BP pitch to the worst hitter on the team.

155 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:58 pm

Take. Him. Out.

156 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:59 pm

Hm. Was that intentional?

157 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:59 pm

Pick a better spot, Joba, you knucklehead!

158 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 9:59 pm

Just turned it back on. Did frigging Joba go back to his Youkilis shit in a one run game?

159 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:00 pm

Can we just waive Joba?

160 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:00 pm

[158] No, he waited until he allowed the tying run before hitting him.

161 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:01 pm

[159] Really? After all of the work the organization put into developing him?

162 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:02 pm

AAA is open for business for another couple weeks. Send him down and get his head right(ish).

[161] The sad thing is I think they really feel that way.

164 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:04 pm

...That's how Paul Konerko runs these days?

165 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:05 pm

Well Jeter's up next inning, so there's a good chance hey score.

166 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:06 pm

[163] You have to admit, his transformation from super prospect and successful young starter into garbage time middle reliever has been dramatic. Few organizations can pull that sort of thing off so seamlessly.

167 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:10 pm

[166] It really was an accomplishment.

168 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:11 pm

[166] Initial thoughts after his trampoline accident was Joba may not pitch ever again let alone this season. I'd cut him a little bit of slack. But I wholeheartedly agree about the organization blowing his development.

169 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:12 pm

Brett Myers ate El Guapo, huh?

170 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:12 pm

[168] I do cut *him* slack. There is absolutely no reason for him to be on the big league roster now---that is on the organization, as is their bizarre "development" of him.

171 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:13 pm

[168] He's been a mediocre middle reliever for a while now.

172 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:13 pm

Damn straight. Amazing.

173 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:14 pm

He's jumping Mays this season...the only question is by how many hits.

174 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:16 pm

So, think Jeter ties Willie Mays tonight? :)

175 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:19 pm

[173] He's 38 hits away, and there has to be near 40 games left.

176 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:19 pm

[171] Oh, I know. I'm just not going to write him off for this year already.

177 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:20 pm

Damn you Pierzynksi! Damn you to hell!

178 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:21 pm

[175]Typo. 28 hits

179 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:24 pm

booooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

180 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:24 pm

[175] Yep, 40 games left after today. He's averaging about 1.35 hits/game this season. If he keeps it up he should get another 52 hits or so this season---so about 3300 total.

181 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:25 pm

Binderball...catch the excitement!

182 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:27 pm

This has been one piss poor managing job tonight.

183 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:30 pm

On the bright side, due to my comment above, I learned that I can do this with my new computer. ô ö ò ó œ ø ō õ So I got that going for me. Looks like it works with other vowels as well.

184 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:32 pm

[182] Well, he's a piss poor manager.

185 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:39 pm

Excellent---one inning for the longman.

186 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:40 pm

Someone is already writing the recap for this putrid toilet bowl of a game.

187 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:53 pm

Why exactly PH Martin for Stewart? What's the difference?

188 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:54 pm

And the catcher goes to the mound with two outs, two strikes and a three run lead? Tis is torture.

189 monkeypants   ~  Aug 20, 2012 10:55 pm

Jeter left on deck. Oh well. He'll take aim at Mays tomorrow.

190 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2012 11:08 pm

I look at it this way. Sure we lost and the division lead is shrinking, but we got to see most of the bullpen, and Joe has to consider that a moral victory.
