"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Sundazed Soul

Ah, you know what? I missed the whole damn thing so I don’t have much on what went down yesterday. I checked the box score, saw that each team had a bunch of hits, so I guess the Yanks had their chances just couldn’t get her done.

They lost, 5-3, and the modest but promising, four-game winning streak is over.

Phil Huges didn’t get bombed but he wasn’t good, either:

“I can’t remember the last time I was as bad as that,” Hughes said. “Just not being able to locate the fastball, or any offspeed pitch for that matter. Any time I did have to come in for a strike, it was out over the middle of the plate and just got hammered somewhere.”

Unless of course, a better assessment is this one…

“The fastball command wasn’t there,” Francisco Cervelli said. “We get behind all the time, and especially when you can’t throw strike one, that’s a problem. … When we miss location, this is the big leagues, you pay. Sometimes they hit a base hit, sometimes a homer. Today was three bombs.”

And here’s some more weirdness.

Hiroki Kuroda will get the start tonight as Andy Pettitte’s got some back pain and will skip a start. Yanks and O’s make like The Game of the Week tonightski on ESPN.

In the meantime, it’s sunny here in the Bronx. Hope everyone has a fine day. We’ll be back tonight with a game thread.

For now, dig the Andrew Wyeth picture above and listen to this:

I want an arod cam during tonight's game. Intermittently they could show the game from his point of view with occasional glances to a document shredder, a bag of money, a portrait of himself as a unicorn, and his roid mule.

It was fun seeing Frankie at second.

4 Alex Belth   ~  Apr 14, 2013 2:37 pm

Sox holding a steady 4-0 lead over the Rays. Clay has a no no through six. But now, time for the Knicks Pacers!

6 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 2:41 pm

13 RIYank   ~  Apr 14, 2013 4:08 pm

Thelarmis, did you see the WSJ story about Mo last week? He was talking to a drummer. (That wasn't the whole story, but, you know.)

14 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 4:20 pm

[13] i did see it! : )

15 RIYank   ~  Apr 14, 2013 4:21 pm

Ah! Good.
So, keep on drummin', and someday you will meet the Great One.

16 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 4:46 pm

17 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 4:47 pm

i was in the presence of Zakir Hussain last night. didn't meet him, but a friend of mine did.

Zakir and Mariano - THE greatest at what they do, the world over.

18 RIYank   ~  Apr 14, 2013 4:57 pm

Hm, I haven't met anyone great recently. (Except my son, who's home for a while, he's great.)
I guess that means I'd better keep practicing.

19 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 5:04 pm

well, i didn't meet zakir...but i will meet lotsa great folks on Saturday.

i'm sharing the stage with Tower of Power, Maceo Parker, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and many more : )

20 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 5:05 pm

and, yes, keep pracketing. i'm about to prak right now - both marimba and drumset...

21 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 5:05 pm

that's really awesome about your son!!!

22 Alex Belth   ~  Apr 14, 2013 5:09 pm

Knicks win! Clinch second seed. Outstanding. Now, onto the Masters before the game.

23 thelarmis   ~  Apr 14, 2013 5:18 pm

[22] you're not practicing marimba? huh.

24 RIYank   ~  Apr 14, 2013 6:12 pm

[23] Why is practicing marimba like watching golf?

(I have no idea, it just sounds like a good riddle, doesn't it?)

25 Alex Belth   ~  Apr 14, 2013 6:28 pm

Good finish to the Masters. In the rain, too.

Still pretty amped about the Knicks win today, too.
