Nothing to Lose

FAP-Liste

Alex Rodriguez was due to join the Yankees in Texas tomorrow but he’s back in New York having an MRI on the current old-man ailment for the Yanks–quad troubles.

Meantime, it’s C.C. who will try to pick it in the second half…dammit. C’mon, C.C., you’re our MAN.

Vernon Wells LF
Travis Hafner DH

Luis Cruz 3B

Never mind the Game of the Week:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Good for Phil. What a round of golf.

As for Alex, not believing it. Scouts said not ready. Not ready? Hip surgery lets me walk; doesn't let me run and stop and cut. Cannot play tennis, unless I want to stand still and let the balls I cannot reach go by. Scamming, I say, without any proof. He wants Momma to be happy. That he is story, check out the great illustration on today's Times, instead of some of these kids or the management that brings them to us, upsets me. "Offensive offense," said Cash. Now, that's a stretch, something that Alex cannot do.

2 The Mick536   ~  Jul 21, 2013 6:37 pm

Sorry. I root for Cruz. Who is he, btw?

3 The Mick536   ~  Jul 21, 2013 6:39 pm

Ooops. Another Girardi. We bring them up for a game and we don't want anything to happen to them. Or something like that. Umm. What about Jete, dude?

4 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 6:43 pm

Grade 1 quad strain for Alex. Headed to Tampa, not Texas.

5 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:10 pm

Thanks Dumpster.

6 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:13 pm

Hey, whaddya know? 2-0.

9 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:25 pm

I fear we're gonna regret only scoring two there

10 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:47 pm

Oof, being compared offensively to 1990

Robbie!

11 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:47 pm

Atta boy, Robbie!

12 RIYank   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:50 pm

In retrospect, it was pretty awesome that Pedroia was Rob's sub in the All Star Game. It was hard to appreciate at the time because of the anxiety, but now, it pleases me.

13 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:53 pm

I noticed that, too. Ouch.

I've been going to the RailRiders games since A-Rod started his rehab assignment. He was really hitting well. Even yesterday, when he went 0 for 4 with 3 K's, he almost hit one out. It was caught at the wall.

I wasn't really expecting him in to be the lineup today, but I thought it was because he'd be heading to Boston to re-join the big club.

15 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 7:59 pm

C'mon, CC

16 RIYank   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:04 pm

CC's working harder than you'd like, but pretty effective.

17 Capital Yank   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:08 pm

I've realized for the first time tonight, after listening to the always insightful and immensely enjoyable John and Suzyn, that you just can't predict baseball! Who woulda fuggin' thought???

18 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:15 pm

Is Kruk going to propose to pony on air tonight? For. Fuck's. Sake. Time for mute and music.

19 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:18 pm

Fat Liar.

20 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:19 pm

Well that fucking sucks.

21 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:19 pm

motherfucking bullshit.

i came home to watch this crap? feh.

22 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:20 pm

Big man, pig man,
ha ha, charade you are ...

23 randym77   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:21 pm

Four runs in one inning is not good. Come on, CC.

24 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:23 pm

I hate this team

25 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:26 pm

Geez, I take a few minutes away to talk to the parents and come back to this?

26 randym77   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:31 pm

[25] You know what that means - you can never talk to your parents again.

27 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:35 pm

oh, jesus christ.

28 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:35 pm

Fucking Bollocks.

29 randym77   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:38 pm

Christ on a cracker. What's wrong with CC lately?

30 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:38 pm

CC hasn't fooled anybody lately.

31 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:40 pm

bollocks.

CC usually sucks on his birthday. 33 is no different...

32 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:42 pm

good. i hate that fat frickin' cry baby.

33 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:43 pm

[26] And Friday I'm going to visit them for lake week. Awkward!

34 rbj   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:45 pm

Ballgame.

35 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 8:52 pm

what a terrible swing, vern.

36 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:01 pm

holy crap. crushed.

cc is pretty terrible. that's a new high for homers allowed in a season for him...

37 randym77   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:02 pm

Gomes is hitting righties. The end of the world is nigh.

38 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:04 pm

Well, I've got better things to do than watch the fat man serve up dingers to Beaver Boy and the rest of the Red Sox hillbillys ...

39 monkeypants   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:06 pm

You know, there is a lot of griping about Phil Hughes, but CC is pretty much the same this season, except he gives you more innings.

40 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:09 pm

And there isn't a lot of griping about the Fat Man???

41 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:17 pm

gritty.

42 monkeypants   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:18 pm

Hughes: ERA 4.57, IP 102.1, WHIP 1.290, HR/9 1.6, K/BB 3.38
Sabathia: ERA 4.37, IP 142.0, WHIP 1.261, HR/9 1.46, K/BB 3.93

43 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:18 pm

I guess I'll keep watching, since Mother Nature has pissed all over the Phish concert I was live streaming ... c'mon Awful Offal!

44 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:21 pm

[43] yeah, my buddy was at the chicago show the other night and they had to stop playing.

45 monkeypants   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:21 pm

[40] I haven't noticed it as much. He does not seem to subject to same kind of animus exemplified by the common refrain "just trade Hughes, I'm sick of his act" (or the variant "I can't wait to be rid of JobaHughes, I'm sick of their bullshit). Then again, I don't come round these parts so often any more, so maybe I've missed criticism of CC.

46 randym77   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:22 pm

Not over yet...

47 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:24 pm

c'mon robbie!

48 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:26 pm

1-run. bases still loaded.

49 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:26 pm

Cano..YAY!

Hafner...Oy.

51 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:27 pm

Fucking PATHETIC job by Overbay there.

Sigh.

52 monkeypants   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:29 pm

[50],[51] Whoops, Overbay. Can't tell the players without a scorecard.

53 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:30 pm

[45] I think the key is we've been dealing with Hughes' bullshit for seven seasons now.

54 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:31 pm

[52] Hafner's the out making machine who looks like the bastard offspring of Clint Dempsey and Clive Owen ...

55 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:33 pm

[53] Ding!

Fat Man's been awful this year, but that's a new development; he's been very good in the past, including last year.

Hughes and Joba have been this kind of bullshit for years ...

56 monkeypants   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:34 pm

[53] Fair enough, but...Hughes' bullshit came (for a while) when he was a younger pitcher with potential, and now he's not making CC money. In many ways I find CC *more* frustrating this year, given he is the putative ace and they are shackled to his contract for another two seasons.

57 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:41 pm

Dammit, sit The Underminer down and shut these taint lickers up ...

58 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 9:42 pm

68 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:09 pm

[65] my friend told me about the upstate NY show. he lives in Denver, that's why i thought it was there. he traveled to see them for his birthday and will see 4 more shows this summer.

an old roommate of mine from college, has an art booth at all the venues...

69 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:09 pm

EPIC!

70 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:10 pm

HAHA!!!

71 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:11 pm

[68] The 3 Chicago shows have been ... an adventure.

1st got cancelled in the 2nd set.

3 sets on Saturday.

Rain delay tonight.

Tomorrow night is the makeup show for the show that got cancelled in Toronto due to flooding ...

72 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:11 pm

GRITTY!!!

73 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:11 pm

hilarious.

gritner was prolly our best chance to get a hit though...

74 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:12 pm

[71] my friend was at the first chicago show.

75 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:12 pm

A bb. That works. My senior roommate spent all year dubbing, selling, mailing, and listening to Phish. I actually went to a show in Cleveland. I hate Phish. lol...

76 randym77   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:16 pm

Well, it's a whole new ballgame...

77 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:20 pm

Bah.

78 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:21 pm

i hate giving up leadoff walks...

79 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:21 pm

[75] i like 4 of their older studio records. i saw them live twice and didn't care for either show, but they're a good band.

80 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:24 pm

i imagine we'll lose in the bottom of the 9th.

[or, right here in the 7th...]

81 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:42 pm

lame frame.

82 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:47 pm

OK D.P. - ground into a D.P.

83 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:49 pm

[79] Well, I know at least one of the shows you saw, and it's a pretty good show, so I'm putting that one on you!

;-)

C'mon Hammer, HURT THEM!

[edit] ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME CRUZ?!?!?!?

84 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:49 pm

holy fuck.

REALLY?!

[80] i meant teh 8th...

85 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:49 pm

WHAT THE FUCK!

86 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:51 pm

[83] which one?

i saw them at jones beach on the junta tour, before i was into them.

then, a halloween show at the old Omni in atlanta as a guest of Col. Bruce. that one was a boring show. i don't remember which album they covered. this was 1996, i think. maybe '97.

i hear they're kicking all kinds of ass right now.

87 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:52 pm

just put the fat fucker on...

88 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:52 pm

How the hell was that a hit?

89 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:54 pm

that was a bit nerve wracking...

90 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:54 pm

[88] just changed it. E5.

91 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:56 pm

oh god. please don't put joba in this game. i thought we were actually trying to win.

YEAH!!!

HAMMERED!!!

Holy cow. This is is gonna kill me.

94 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 10:58 pm

[86] Weird, I was totally wrong, I was sure you'd told me that you seen the 3-1-03 show.

In any case, my point still stands, the 10-31-96 Omni "Remain in Light" show is top-notch, even if '96 was generally a down year.

=)

95 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 11:01 pm

good start.

96 thelarmis   ~  Jul 21, 2013 11:03 pm

[94] hmmm, nope. i would *love* to see/hear them play Rift, beginning to end. apparently, they played 4 tunes from that album at a recent show. my fave phish record.

i'm not a big talking heads fan, so maybe that's why i wasn't down. i didn't remember and had to look up who did that record...

i was just in a different place at that time. i was heavily into Dolphy, Mingus, Monk, Sun Ra, et al. at that time.

97 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 21, 2013 11:05 pm

[96] Now Talking Heads I like. Go figure. Stewart had no idea where that ball went.

98 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 11:08 pm

[96] Those things aren't actually exclusive ...

=)

99 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 21, 2013 11:13 pm

[97] That '96 Halloween set is fantastic stuff. They've kept 'Crosseyed and Painless' in rotation ever since ...
