Oy, with these Angels. Even when they’re a lousy team, I still don’t like ‘em.

Nice n easy.

BTW, the banana tosser now says he didn't mean for it to be racial:
http://www.mercurynews.com/giants/ci_23844386/giants-apologize-orioles-adam-jones-banana-thrown

"Poulides, 42, said he grabbed a banana off a catering cart and hurled it toward the field in disgust at the Giants near the end of a 10-2 loss at AT&T Park on Sunday. The banana apparently sailed toward Jones, who tweeted about the incident after the game."

Yeah, you're mad at your team so you just happened to grab a banana and throw it towards a black player -- on the other team.

[2] Why don't they ever throw cherries or grapes? I frickin' hate bananas...

4 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 6:46 pm

Scioscia is a raging douche. Ah..... now I feel better.

5 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 6:57 pm

Clutchy Gritty Gardner!

6 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:00 pm

[3] Love bananas, lots of potassium -- and radon!

7 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:31 pm

Can the Yankees win one Kuroda game this year 10 - 0? Is that so much to ask?

8 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:31 pm

Nobody has ever thrown a knish at me. Or, I dunno, matzoh. I guess that wouldn't be a very aggressive act.

9 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:32 pm

[7] What?? And waste all those runs?? They need them for the Hughes starts.

10 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:35 pm

That's not a hit! E4 for fuck's sake!

11 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:43 pm

Yankee Win Expectancy is now (one out in the sixth) at 72%.
(Since we can't pull ahead by getting runs, I figure gaining WExp by getting outs will have to do.)

There's another one. 75%.

12 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:44 pm

77%

13 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:53 pm

Dang, just foul.

Come on, Rob!

14 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:54 pm

Okay, acceptable.
Centaur time! One last hurrah, ya big lug.

15 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:55 pm

Sunnuva...

16 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 7:55 pm

Oof, not what we wanted Alex.

17 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:02 pm

I watching in Lake Forest, Orange County, CA, with my die hard, bleed Angel red, big sis and family. However...no one seems to be interested in the game. I am watching alone. They are usually parked in from the big screen and very vocal. Times have done changed.

18 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:03 pm

Thanks, Josh!
Meet A-Rod.

19 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:11 pm

Kaboom!

20 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:11 pm

Yay!

21 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:12 pm

Grandy!

22 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:15 pm

That was cool -- for those not watching YES, Cone was saying, "You lose track of how close this game is, I mean, it's one-nothing--two-nothing [as the ball leaves Curtis's bat]..."

23 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:25 pm

I ♥ Kuroda. Soriano, however, has to call off Nuney on that pop up.

24 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:25 pm

Hiro!
Awesome. What a freaking stud he is.

25 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:26 pm

[22] Paulie O'Neill fwiw.

26 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:26 pm

[17] But watching Trout is worth it! He's amazing. That Pujols contract though..wow. Who would have every thought it could get worse than the A-Rod one?

27 Chyll Will   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:32 pm

[6] mmm... radon...

28 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:34 pm

Boone???

29 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:34 pm

Interesting. . .

30 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:35 pm

[25] Oh, jeez that was Paulie?? I'm not paying close attention.

31 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:36 pm

Well isn't that lovely.

32 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:36 pm

[27] Yup. Not life threatening, but background radiation.

33 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:36 pm

Want Mo.
Yeah, me too.

34 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:37 pm

C'mon, Boone! Get an out.

35 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:37 pm

[32] Oh yikes..don't mention radiation..seen the latest news from Fukushima over here? (shudder...)

36 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:38 pm

Booooooone!
Okay, now GIDP and end this mofo.

37 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:39 pm

Boone plus D-Rob.
This works for me.

38 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:40 pm

First time went into moderation (WP didn't like the word F#kushima so will try again:

[32] Oh yikes..don't mention radiation..seen the latest news from over here? (shudder...)

39 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:43 pm

[35] haven't seen the latest, but not good.

40 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:44 pm

Goddam that was strike three you blind fuck.

41 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:44 pm

Buckle in for another potential nut punch.

42 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:44 pm

AND THAT WAS STRIKE FOUR!
Shit.

43 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:45 pm

(Pitch f/X had both of those pitches in the strike zone.)

44 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:45 pm

MOTHERFUCKING GARBAGE. GAH!

45 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:46 pm

Jesus F Cripes.

46 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:47 pm

Let's see a little 6-4-3 bingo here.

47 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:47 pm

Yeah, that IBB is correct, I have to confess.

48 Chyll Will   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:48 pm

[32] Bananas...

[38] Sorry, bro. I saw news about that a couple of weeks ago and passed it around. Not good for you or our west coast bredren it seems (and eventually us all the way over here).

49 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:48 pm

Whoo-hoo. 1 more.

50 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:48 pm

NAILED.

51 Chyll Will   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:51 pm

Funny the things YouTube mobile app won't let you see that a desktop PC will... well, not that funny to me.

52 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:51 pm

C'mon, DAVE!

53 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:52 pm

Here's to you, Mr. Robertson. Phew.... : )

54 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:52 pm

NAILED!!!

55 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:52 pm

D-Rob. Stepping into The Role.

56 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:53 pm

D-Rob got it done! Barely, it was ball four. And Kuroda gets the win.

57 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:54 pm

[53] Coo coo cachoo!

58 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:59 pm

Houdini strikes again. That was satisfying.

My sis finally showed up when I was screaming at the last strike and said, "You're actin' like it's the last game of the World Series."

Well, I might as well.

59 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Aug 12, 2013 8:59 pm

Gotta admit, maybe not dominating, but these Yankees can be exciting to watch. Us fans have to adjust expectations.

60 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 12, 2013 9:02 pm

Good fuggin win.

59) And good pernt. This season has been kind a cool.

61 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 12, 2013 9:12 pm

Great ending!

Just saw a headline "K.Youkilis still hopes to play this season". I honestly forgot he was even on the team..

62 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Aug 12, 2013 9:14 pm

Just heard an incredible stat about D-Rob on the post game. He has retired the last 25 batters he faced when the bases are loaded, since 2011.

63 RIYank   ~  Aug 12, 2013 9:19 pm

[62] Holy shit.
But in fact, not that surprising.

So that makes the IBB even better :-)
