I see plenty O' Ks in that lineup facing Darvish-san...

2 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 6:12 pm

Nice leather, Zoilo

3 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 6:28 pm

bases loaded, one out. GIDP expectancy these days is about 100%

4 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 6:32 pm

[3] Or...

5 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 6:33 pm

Or a K & a ground out.

6 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 6:39 pm

Freaking Rob. So easy.

7 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 6:44 pm

Oh, A-Rod cleared to play games. Question is, how much is left in the tank?

8 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 7:01 pm

out by a mile.

9 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 7:23 pm

Sure, now.

10 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 7:30 pm

A Balboni sighting!

11 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 7:35 pm

[7] Really?
[10]REALLY?? He still got the 'stache?

12 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 7:39 pm

[10] Looking at Bye-Bye's BReference page..career OBP of .293!? How did he get more than 3400 career ABS??

13 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 7:39 pm


14 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 7:42 pm

[11] Didn't see. His back was turned, it was during the Olde Tymee Game.
[12] He had pictures of someone?

15 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:22 pm

Quiet thread tonight..everyone scared off by Cashman's profane interview? (Is he losing it bit by bit? What an odd thing to get angry about...)

16 monkeypants   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:26 pm

[12] Yeah, but he did have that one pretty good season, in 1985, and won a WS, too. I remember my dad being pretty excited about Balboni when he first came up, what with his Italian last name and all.

[15] ?. What interview are you talking about? Cashman seems pretty jerky of late.

17 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:27 pm

What a joke..maybe A-Rod should tweet back to Cashman, 'cool, I'll just go stay on the DL and watch all your great off-season signings slug .350 then.'..

18 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:32 pm

[16] If you are a Twitter user then just search for A-Rod and watch the explosion..basically, A-Rod tweeted that he was excited because his surgeon cleared him to start playing...and Cash flipped out while talking to ESPN and told him to STFU...

19 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:33 pm


20 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:34 pm

[17] If David Adams slugged .350, he'd have an orgasm.

21 Alex Belth   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:37 pm

18) Alex must have really pissed the Yankees off--and they must know he's going to be suspended. I mean, the guy is excited that he can play so he tweets it and his GM tells him to shut the fuck up. Now, Rodriguez may have been out of line saying that but Cashman could have downplayed it to the media and handled it privately. But you can just tell he's had enough of Rodriguez. Thing is, Alex looks foolish as always, even when trying to be eager about playing, but while Cashman has himself a quote for the ages, and one that will satisfy the legion of Rodriguez's detractors, Cashman also comes across as an unprofessional jerk.

22 monkeypants   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:38 pm

[18] Yeah, I don't follow twitter...just can't get excited about the truncated opinions of various celebs on matters of the day. Still, I'll have to find a clip of Cashman freaking out. Maybe the stress of the Vernon Wells deal is finally getting to him. That contract has broken other GMs.

23 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:41 pm

[22] I like to think Nietzsche would have Tweeted.

24 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:43 pm

NEW YORK -- Livid over Alex Rodriguez's decision to tweet an update on his rehab process, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had a message for the third baseman.

"You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, [we will]," Cashman told ESPN New York. "Alex should just shut the f--- up. That's it. I'm going to call Alex now."

Rodriguez tweeted Tuesday that he has been cleared to play in rehab games. Rodriguez's comments seemed to contradict what Cashman told ESPN New York's Wallace Matthews on Monday.

25 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:44 pm

[22][23] I love you guys. :)

But Twitter is everything Facebook is not..once you learn to control Twitter it's really valuable. All the updated music info (CD releases, concerts, etc) all the baseball info you need..and lots of great celeb gossip!

26 Boatzilla   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:45 pm

[21] Yes, shockingly unprofessional and un-Yankee-like move by Cashman. Breaks every PR rule in the book. Throws gasoline on what would have been tiny spark.

[22] It's on ESPN.

27 Boatzilla   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:46 pm

[25] And Jazz! And Boatzilla...

28 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:47 pm

[21] As soon as I saw that A-Rod was on twitter I knew this wouldn't end well. One reason I avoid that medium. The world doesn't need to know every fleeting thought crossing your mind. But a NY GM should be aware of the media too.

As for the Miami clinic thing, you've got to choose which unsavory characters to believe. I couldn't convict in a court of law, but that's not the standard here.

29 Alex Belth   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:50 pm

28) So right. Once he joined twitter you knew, probably sooner rather than later, it would not go well. LOL

30 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:52 pm

C-Stew throw!

See Adams throw two!

31 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 8:52 pm

[21] Certainly joins the long list of great Yankee-Pride quotes like Mickey Mantle's 'Don't ask me, I ain't no cocksucker', 'Billy's 'One's a born liar, the other's convicted' and George's 'You Fat pussy toad.' Classiest organization in sports!

Unedited version of below got stuck in moderation..

33 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:05 pm

I guess I can't say "Thanks be", though. That's only for Saves.

34 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:08 pm

Attaboy Chris. Just watch, don't swing...

35 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:08 pm

Oh, that is awesome. Awesome walk.

36 Alex Belth   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:09 pm

Very nice walk.

37 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:09 pm

Oh dear, it's time for the binder of plays ...

38 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:11 pm

Uh, that's Chris Stewart, mid-30s catcher on 1st base, right?

ugh ... shiite call.

39 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:13 pm

Yeah, why no pinch runner???


40 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:13 pm

Oh, perfect.

41 Alex Belth   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:14 pm

Dumb fucking inning. I can't wait for Joba to come in the game.

42 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:14 pm


43 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:14 pm

Oh, yeaaaahhhhhhh.

Fucking sweet.

44 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:15 pm

[41] Mo only threw 11 pitches..he can go two! Please no Joba!

45 Alex Belth   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:15 pm


46 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:15 pm


47 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:15 pm

ICHIRO could win this game if he wanted to!!!!!!!

48 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:15 pm

Whoa, さよならホームラン!!イチロ!!

49 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:16 pm

Damn, I wish AJ was still here ... just to see him pie Ichiro! after this walk off.

50 Alex Belth   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:16 pm

So cool.

51 rbj   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:16 pm

Japanese night once again.

52 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:17 pm

[43] He could not.
[46] He certainly could.

Did we just win a game with four solo homers???

53 RIYank   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:18 pm

[50] I was just thinking that, yeah.

54 Boatzilla   ~  Jun 25, 2013 9:20 pm

Very cool.

55 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Jun 25, 2013 10:58 pm

Watched the end of the game, great win. Happy day in Japan, 'cept for Yu fans. Ichiro belongs here.

Cashman was a little over the top. He should apologize for his reaction to what seemed like something sprung on him. Maybe he knows that Arod will be suspended once he gets off the DL? In Arod's defense (unless there is information we don't have), his tweet appeared to be innocent enthusiasm.

56 BobbyB   ~  Jun 26, 2013 9:02 am

[54] Cashman was out of line but it's kind of hard to feel sorry for A-Rod. Unfortunately, the entire organization and 90% of all Yankee fans hate A-rod at this point (with good reason). I'm surprised nobody in Tampa has knee-capped him.
