So I get to miss Nova during the day game, while at work, but they make it up to me by having Hughes in the nightcap? Sometimes life just ain't fair.

2 Dimelo   ~  Aug 20, 2013 11:24 am

I love WFH days.

Have a sneaky hunch that Nova has great day basebal stats, but couldn't find them. Anyone know where to lok 'em up?

Hughes tonight. I'd say the over/under on HR given up 2.5, and his over/under on IP is 5 2/3rds.

[4] Thanks!

6 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 12:36 pm

Catch the gd ball, Stewart!

7 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 12:42 pm

Well this game sucks eggs already.

8 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 12:51 pm

Well at least Phil Hughes is pitching tonight...

9 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2013 12:54 pm

Maybe I'm missing the right game after all.

10 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 1:16 pm

CRACK!!!! 3 run big fly from Robbie!

11 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 1:22 pm

Don't cha know, it's a ballgame.

12 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:13 pm

Dempster was suspended for 5 games; Girardi fined.

13 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:15 pm

Holy fuggin CHRIS STEWART!!!!!

14 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:15 pm

fuck yeah, motherfucker!!!

15 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:16 pm

[12] he better miss a fucking start. cocksucker. i'm still pissed at that pussy ass coward fucker.

16 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:16 pm

man, dumpster makes me curse sooo much (more than normal, i guess) that my comment is in moderation yet again...

17 garydsimms   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:18 pm

Guess it IS a ballgame...just got to the computer.....

18 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:19 pm

16) I thought what he did was bush but I've actually heard he's a decent guy.

19 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:27 pm

[18] i used to think he was pretty awesome. he's hilarious and really good at impressions.

but that shit the other night was total bollocks. fuck him.

20 BobbyB   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:29 pm

Dumpster suspended 5 games. Wonder if he'll appeal?

21 garydsimms   ~  Aug 20, 2013 2:42 pm

whew. too exciting for work

22 BobbyB   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:04 pm

[16] yes, Alex, and I've heard that about A-Rod, too. Doesn't make me like him either. Zim, still my favorite bench coach, and the most honest baseball guy I can name, said it was Bush League so I gotta agree.

23 BobbyB   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:12 pm

Joba warming in the pen. That's an automatic HR for the Jays.

24 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:23 pm

Thanks Joba, now we have to burn Mo.

25 Dimelo   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:23 pm

Why can't they release Joba after this game?

26 garydsimms   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:28 pm

Nice win. Seems like old times, come-from-behind.

27 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:29 pm

22) I meant Dempster not Alex.

Meanwhile, NICE WIN.

28 BobbyB   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:30 pm

Nice job Mo. Maybe he's still available with only a handful of pitches. Next we get Phil. Oy!

29 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:34 pm

Thanks be to Mo.

30 BobbyB   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:34 pm

Alex, I was referring to Dempster, too. Just saying you hear good things about a lot of guys. Doesn't mean they are true. Alex and Dempster may be good guys to their teammates, but character is missing in both of them

31 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:48 pm

robbie now at:

.307/.390/.510

32 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 3:51 pm

30) Ah, I see, I see. Point taken.

33 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 20, 2013 5:51 pm

Last night I dreamed Rickey was in our lineup. He was like 55. He lined out to center. A very respectable out.

34 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 5:52 pm

[33] lol... Rickey only makes respectable outs. Rickey says so.

35 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 20, 2013 5:59 pm

hahahahahahaha!

It's funny, because I wasn't just watching him at the bat, but was also sort of hanging out with him, got a good exposure to his humanity, his character...he was sort of a pathetic, noble, tragic, comic figure all in one. And human, all too human.

36 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 6:06 pm

[35] I had a dream many years ago that David Wells knocked on the front door of my parents house while I was over there. We wound up having a beer. Just a few weeks ago that 3rd baseman for the Yanks, the one in all the hot water, what's his name? Anyway, I was hanging out him in the front driveway of my house having a bbq. The mind is an interesting thing.

37 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2013 6:14 pm

Wunnerful, just wunnerful.

38 BobbyB   ~  Aug 20, 2013 6:17 pm

Phil: You want a prediction about the weather, you’re asking the wrong Phil. I’ll give you a winter prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.

39 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2013 6:44 pm

Congrats, kid.

40 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 6:50 pm

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH.

Even when Hughes does it right, he gets it wrong ...

:facepalm:

41 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 6:54 pm

Vintage Hughes.

42 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:07 pm

ROBBIE!

43 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:08 pm

Heh. I love Coney.

44 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:15 pm

No.

Just NO, Kay.

STOP digging.

45 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:19 pm

Hey Joey Joe Joe, I HOPE YOU'RE WATCHING!

I have no idea if matching Romine and Hughes will make a difference over the rest of the season, but Romine is approaching pitch selection *very* differently this game and it seems to be having a positive effect, maybe you should make sure and try it again.

46 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:26 pm

[36] :)

I dreamed about hanging out with Mattingly once, though I don't remember anything about it.

47 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:39 pm

Gah.

48 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:49 pm

Hughes has been good tonight? Huh?

49 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:53 pm

[46] Logging on from Joisey City. Going to Manhattan tomorrow.

I had a dream with Derek Jeter the other day (when I was in Cali). We were walking through this store, perhaps a Target, pursuing some guy who did something bad. We were of the same mind, Jeets and I. He was in street clothes. He picked up an orange/red towel, and I knew he wanted me to douse it with lighter fluid. He would light it and throw it on the guy. As I said, we were of the same mind. I woke up while searching the shelves for something flammable.

50 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:56 pm

Fuck! That is a helluva a play.

51 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 7:58 pm

No es bueno, Alex.

Ick.

52 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:20 pm

Nix, baby!

53 rbj   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:20 pm

Nix!

54 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:22 pm

Wap! Austin hit that one on the button. Lucky double.

55 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:22 pm

ARE YOU WATCHING THIS JOEY JOE JOE?!?!?!!?

56 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:22 pm

[46] A Weeping sighting! and post #46 too!

I want a sweep today. Let's Go Yankees! (I can't stop using exclamation marks! Must re-read the Leonard on Writing post from earlier!)

57 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:33 pm

"It's b/c I was infatuated with Mrs. Robinson from The Graduate."
Cone needs a quote of the day calendar.

58 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:38 pm

Again, ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION JOEY JOE JOE!?!!?!??

59 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:43 pm

ALEX, WHAT IS GOOD IN LIFE???

CENTAUR: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

YES, THAT IS GOOD!!!

60 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:48 pm

Well, fuck.

Can you at least give me a reach around on this quest?!?!??

61 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:49 pm

Hero the other day, chump today. Drag.

62 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:51 pm

NUNE5!!!!

GRRRRR.

63 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:51 pm

[57] Mrs. Robinson was enticing..but overall I hated that movie.
Following game on my phone, was that just a dish of PastaNunEy?

64 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:53 pm

Nunez now has 11 errors in 500 innings. That seems like a lot.

65 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:54 pm

[64] I dunno, it's far fewer than if we had a corpse, a statue or nobody playing SS ...

66 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:56 pm
67 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:56 pm

Nune6 drives me as crazy as anyone but that was a tough error.

68 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:57 pm

[65] But more than a butterfly net

69 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:58 pm

[67] He just missed it.

70 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 8:59 pm

Nicely done, Mo!

71 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:01 pm

[66] Sorry, that's A-Rod's avatar ...

72 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:01 pm

Good job Mo. Now win this. I need to go to bed

73 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:02 pm

C'mon, WALK-THE-FUCK-OFF!!!

74 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:03 pm

Oh, jeez, is it time for playz???

75 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:04 pm

Nix can be the real hero here

76 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:05 pm

Ichi a go-go.

77 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:05 pm

Okay Jayson. IN THE AIR.

78 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:05 pm

SQUEEZE!!!!!!!

79 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:05 pm

Or that. Hells yeah!

80 Mattpat11   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:05 pm

WOO-HOO!

81 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:05 pm

Nixie!

82 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:06 pm

YES, TIME FOR PLAYZ!

ICHIGO!!!

83 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:06 pm

Swell day.

84 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:06 pm

AND NIXIE!!!

85 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:06 pm

Let's Win TWO!

86 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:29 pm

We don't need no score truck, because the Double Dutch Bus is comin' down the street! How about Stewart, Romine, and Nix today? And Hughes...a different tack today for him, and it seemed to work. He's good, right?

This team works through seemingly anything.

87 Dillon   ~  Aug 20, 2013 9:43 pm

Nix made a real strong case for himself today. My Nunez allegiance is flagging quickly. Sub-par defense is so much easier to excuse when you're not batting .248 w/ 1HR.
