Lyle Overbay, who had been DFA'ed by Boston is our clean up hitter.

2 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 6:14 pm

Robbie!

3 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 20, 2013 6:14 pm

Robbie says, "Get that shit outta here!"

4 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 6:28 pm

Congrats on the first ML home run David!

5 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 6:38 pm

Is it going to be one of those games?

6 Mattpat11   ~  May 20, 2013 6:43 pm

Normally, I wouldn't be happy to see insufferable pompous windbag RA Dickey win, but any day The Rapist loses is a good one.

7 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 6:49 pm

[6] Geez. Had to look that up.
Kinda makes it hard to get too moralistic about steroids, huh?

8 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 7:11 pm

[7] indeed.

9 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 7:27 pm

Rats, almost got out of it.

10 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:31 pm

Yipe, big batter here, Adam Jones...

11 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:31 pm

Speaking of big Adams: Dunn took Jon Lester deep in the first inning with two aboard.

12 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:33 pm

And a bid play by Adams!
It's Adams all around.

13 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 7:33 pm

And a Yankee named Adams made the tough play to save a run.

14 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 7:35 pm

[12] And I'm chewing Black Jack gum

15 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:37 pm

[14] Ummmmmm.
Cadbury-Adams?

16 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 7:37 pm

Damn, is Fat Freddy Filth Flinging us?

17 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:38 pm

I love how Michael and Kenny observe that the Yankees swing early in the count so "they won't be put away by the splitter," and then Brett watches all six pitches.

He likes to watch.

18 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 7:38 pm

Run Gritty, run!

19 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 7:40 pm

Scott Proctor is retiring. Joe Torre is putting him in the game.

20 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:41 pm

Wow, he did beat it! Tricky Gritner!

No, he was out. Huh.

21 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 7:41 pm

Well, nice swim move, but Gritner still swam his ass into what should have been an out ...

22 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:42 pm

I think Rob did have the green light, but it was irrelevant.

23 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 7:42 pm

[19] Godspeed, EDSP!

24 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:46 pm

Overpronked.

25 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 7:46 pm

Day-um, how was that a double play? The ball ate him up.

26 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:47 pm

Three straight doubles off Lester in the second inning. Getting creamed by the Other Sox.

27 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 7:51 pm

[23] ? Emotionally Disabled Special Person? I not too proud to ask.
Joe Torre is going to use Proctor at the MLB office at some Sisyphean task.

28 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 7:53 pm

Jesus, just bring on the Robot Umpire Overlords already.

This year's a fucking joke ...

29 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 7:53 pm

[27] Every Day Scotty Proctor!

30 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 7:54 pm

[27] EveryDay Scott Proctor.

So we have two bad calls in our favor this evening. That's baseball, sorry Buck (you douche).

31 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 7:56 pm

I think Tanyon Sturtze already holds that position.

32 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 7:58 pm

I know the Yankees are getting the benefits of bad calls, and that this game would probably not be tied at the point. CC not sharp again, but as usual gutting out innings.

But...I'm beginning to despise Buck Showalter all over again. Looking at every ball thrown out of play when CC is pitching. What a dick.

33 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 7:58 pm

[31] Nostra!!!

34 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 7:59 pm

So that's why Lyle is hitting fourth.

35 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:00 pm

OVERBOOM!

36 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:01 pm

[34] Red Sox cast-off.

[32] Yes, totally.

37 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:05 pm

ICHIRO! has really been shiite this* year, hasn't he?

*MP Disclaimer: yes, I know he's really been shiite for a lot longer than *this* year, I'm just sayin' ...

38 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 8:05 pm

Cleanup hitter!

39 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:07 pm

Who would of thought we would see a Yankee DP combo of Adams to Brignac to Overbay. I'm grateful for the success, but it is a little weird.

40 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:10 pm

Argh.

41 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 8:10 pm

[39] You'd have gotten some damn fine odds on that in Vegas.

Crap.

42 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 8:11 pm

Shit!

43 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:12 pm

Buggerfuckingshitfarger!

I'm not liking CC2.0

Fugh.

44 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:12 pm

The O's are just going with the pitches, not swinging for the fences. CC must be feeling a little mortal these days. Maybe he needs to put the weight back on?

45 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 8:13 pm

Motherfucker.

46 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 8:14 pm

Hi Cult!

47 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 20, 2013 8:15 pm

And to celebrate sticking an AC unit into the bedroom window I get to sit down and see CC cough up the lead. Crud.

48 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:18 pm

Singleton just said that Kelley has struck out the 13 of the last 18 batters he faced....

49 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:18 pm

NO! God, IBB for Davis. Ugh.

50 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:18 pm

Sean Kelly?

Kelley???

13 of the last 18 on K's?

Well, I'll be ...

51 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:19 pm

[46] You still gonna tour out here?

52 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 8:21 pm

Way to go Shawn!

53 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:21 pm

[52] Sean?

Shaun??

Shawn???

54 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 8:22 pm

Cult - it wasn't a tour. Trying to hook up with a drum company. I hope it happens later this year. I'll keep you posted...

Prolly gonna be in No Cal next month, but that's really far from you, I'm afraid...

55 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 20, 2013 8:23 pm

Oh, good. Hughes is starting tomorrow.

56 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:23 pm

The White Sox have two successive Tylers in their order.

57 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:24 pm

[54] Like SF-area NoCal?

58 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 8:26 pm

[53] It's Shawn. Forget whether his last name has one or two "e"s

59 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:27 pm

FUCK

60 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 8:29 pm

If the Yankees are short on catchers, DL Stewart. I heard there's a guy named Yogi Berra who's available.

61 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:31 pm
62 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 8:32 pm

Yeah, SF...for a coupla days, then north of there. Chico, maybe. I'm not positive yet. It's the woman's choice. My wallet ; )

63 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:34 pm

[62] Well, shiiiiiite, just got a new car ... dropped 90k miles in an afternoon ... SF ain't so far away at all any more!

Do you know if it would be a weekend?

64 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 8:35 pm

[61] Thanks.

65 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:36 pm

[63] 90k miles in an afternoon? Did you buy a used space shuttle?
[62} I vote for Mendocino!

66 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:37 pm

[62] Wait. Hold on.
Woman?

67 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:38 pm

Hey, C-Dick! C-Dick run!

68 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:40 pm

[65] I vote for Napa, Sonoma and Anderson Valley!!!

69 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:40 pm

Folks outside of NY probably don't see the Mo Acura commercials for the regional dealerships. They are ridiculous and in my view, and little beneath the dignity of Mo.

70 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:40 pm

NorFUCK???

71 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 8:42 pm

I think the plan is to fly into SF on a Saturday. Might leave Monday and head north for a few days, not sure. She grew up in the Chico area. Mendocino has good beer! We might stay in SF the whole time. Or go up the coast. Her choice. I'll let ya know when we firm up plans.

RI - same woman for a year and a half now. Where ya been?!

72 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:42 pm

[68] Anderson Valley on the way to Mendo.
[67} I liked C-Dick, he had a moment or two of greatness.

73 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:43 pm

[71] Yes, do!

I'm already in the area the weekend on the 14th-16th!!!

74 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:45 pm

[72] And yet, for wine, it's where I'd *stop* ...

75 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:46 pm

[74] Philo!

76 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 8:48 pm

[71] Oh, well, I been... around.

Good, C-Dick run, but no damage.

77 thelarmis   ~  May 20, 2013 8:50 pm

I'm beer only. No interest in wine. But she did mention the possibility of Napa.

Cult - it's the week after, when my school is on brea...

Alright, dinner is over, gotta get back to the study-o to practice.

Cheers, Banter!

GO YANKS!!!

78 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:51 pm

Baltimore must be good a good long time now. I hate them more than the Red Sox these days.

79 cult of basebaal   ~  May 20, 2013 8:52 pm

[77] Cool. Stay in touch, it would be great to hang out and watch a game ... or a show!

80 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:55 pm

Robinson swung at ball four, but strike three was called a ball the pitch before.

81 rbj   ~  May 20, 2013 8:56 pm

Pronk!

82 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 8:56 pm

TRAVIS GOES DEEP! Johnson fucked another.

83 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 9:01 pm

Oh Grandy, swung at a few balls that AB.

Position the frickin' outfielders wherever you want.

Adam to Adams again, but this time Adam wins it.

89 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 9:12 pm

Did Jones hop off the bag?

90 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 9:12 pm

C-Dick playing double agent for the Yankees? I thought he would have had that.

96 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 9:19 pm

Hey Vern!

97 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 20, 2013 9:20 pm

Well hot Damn! I was resigned to a loss about 45 minutes ago and came back to a 5-4 lead in the 9th! Sweet.

Oh well, just in time for Mo Time.

No. That one was a little Mo ...

It'd be nice if the Yankees were doing this with all young farm hands.. But I'll take it. : )

Thanks be to Mo.

Hey, If Mariano finished the year with 44 saves and a 1.75 ERA..any chance he pulls a Rocket/Favre and comes back for one more?

113) Zero.

117 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 20, 2013 9:42 pm

This was an exciting game, and Little Yankees, Yankee Scrubs, Cano and Mo combine for the win. Buck's O's losing 6 in a row. Think he is a little steamed?

118 RIYank   ~  May 20, 2013 9:44 pm
