"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

The Whirled Serious

 

Game One gives Justin Verlander’s filth vs. Barry Zito’s 85 mph cheeseburgers. Tigers should be hungry and they’ve got some big ol’ cheeseburger eating fat bastards on their squad. Wonder if the time off will hurt them like it did in 2006.

Diane has the preview.

Have at it you guys.

Let’s Go Base-ball.

Mmm, cheeseburgers... I went to Jax Inn Diner with my niece the other night (good service btw) and got a bacon cheeseburger with pepper jack, avocado and ranch dressing. They called it the "Tex-Mex" Burger; more like a Tex-Mess by the time I was done with it, but it was certainly worth the try. I blame you for my interest in weird food combinations, Mr. Taster's Cherce (but I'm still aiming to do an anti-foodie show with thelarmis >;)

Play Ball!

4 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 24, 2012 7:31 pm

[1] Mmm...burgers...

Quick tater by Kung-Fu Panda, 1-0 Giants!

5 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 24, 2012 7:35 pm

Panda Powah.

6 mr whirly   ~  Oct 24, 2012 7:58 pm

you notice how buster posey blinks every time he catches the ball?

7 rbj   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:02 pm

[6] Good catch.

8 mr whirly   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:07 pm

giants get some weird doubles!

9 rbj   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:13 pm

Giants have now scored as many runs off Tigers pitching as Yankees have against anyone not named Valverde.

10 Simone   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:15 pm

Damn, how come Verlander did not pitch like that against us?

11 mr whirly   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:20 pm

[10] He did, but instead of a clutch two-strike hit up the middle that Scutaro hit, capitalizing on the Pagan lucky break double and getting into his head, the Yanks bailed him out by flailing for the fences and striking out.

12 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:24 pm

[10] The real question is how come the Yankees couldn't hit like that against Verlander? Isn't this great? The Giants making the most out of minimum.

Let's go Giants!

13 rbj   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:25 pm

That's weird.

14 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:26 pm

Jeez. Panda. I called Delmon hitting into a double play but not like that.

15 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:28 pm

[6] Wasn't that a complaint made about Jesus Montero?

16 Chris   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:52 pm

You know something mental was going on with Cano et al when the Giants are lighting up Verlander!

17 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:54 pm

Funny how Timmay forgot about Barry Bonds. He was genuinely blushing through the audio.
I don't think that gaffe will go away quietly.

18 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 24, 2012 8:59 pm

Well, God Damn.

"Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on Air."

19 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 24, 2012 9:04 pm

[18] He has to go for four now. Probably got two more ABs!

20 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 24, 2012 9:04 pm

Three HRs in a WS game! I wonder how long since that happened? Oh right, Pujols did it last year.

21 Jon DeRosa   ~  Oct 24, 2012 9:08 pm

i liked it better when it was just reggie and the babe. pujols, OK, he's more than worthy company, but i would've preferred he didn't do it. now sandoval, and i was prepared to be peeved.

but then think about it, 2 off verlander, that's the best pitcher in the game. fug it, welcome to the club big guy.

22 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 24, 2012 9:17 pm

I know after the loss, Girardi and the boys had to 'tip their cap'... but not me. For whatever reason, the Yankees fell into a dark hole, en mass. But we had the far better team, Verlander or no.

Hope the Gints embarrass the Tiggers.

Anyone else think Hunter Pence looks more like he should be handling a squeegee outside the stadium than a bat and glove between the foul lines?

24 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:20 pm

I sincerely believe this will be a short series. I just forgot to mention that before the game >;)

25 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:21 pm

[24] San Fran, before you ask...

26 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:27 pm

Wow... talk about luck

27 thelarmis   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:36 pm

kung fu panda. damn.

erin andrews. HOT damn!!!

28 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:40 pm

[27] Panda, Yayy!
Erin A, Boooo! :)

29 smurfy   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:42 pm

Inspired by that graphic, oil or water, it is beautiful. I join to listen and appreciate, if others don't mind. Some do.

Curious game of will over prowess. the Yanks have cracked Verlander as the Giants just did.

Favorite thought is of Scutaro, the Red Sox buggar, flung easily away, to my dismay. What say, Mr. Stats?

30 thelarmis   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:43 pm

[28] you're crazy, dude!

31 smurfy   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:46 pm

who, me? pray say why.

32 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:50 pm

[30] Really, I had no idea who she was until last year or why she became famous. Typical, no-content side-line "reporting", not so attractive! :)
[29] I was guessing it was oil..but now not so sure.

33 smurfy   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:51 pm

aye, I see why, my bad reading. You weren't talking to my crazy self.

34 smurfy   ~  Oct 24, 2012 10:54 pm

[32] It looks so viscous, but it's water, photograhed very well, indeed.

35 smurfy   ~  Oct 24, 2012 11:09 pm

well, Dr. Love better check his cap again. I don't think it's straight.

Loved watching Zito on the bench in the early off-innings. Fella was talking hard to himself. So was V.

36 thelarmis   ~  Oct 24, 2012 11:09 pm

[32] i don't listen to her reporting. ; )

37 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 24, 2012 11:16 pm

[36] Hah! I thought that about the NESN Red Sox reporter, Yowza!

Street Jazz Festival here this weekend, fly on over to check out some gigs!
