C.C. goes. Yanks try to win the series.
Never mind the stickiness:
Let’s Go Yank-ees.

TJ for Nova on Tuesday. Good news is Dr. James Andrews is doing it.
 Serious Q: is Dr. Andrews the only surgeon in the country who does TJ surgery? You never hear any other names.
Let's Go Cee-Cee!
 IIRC, the Mets pitcher currently out had someone else do it.
But no skimping for the Yankees.
Dr. Tim Kremchek also does TJ surgery.
Posada went to him for a second opinion, though that was for his shoulder, not his elbow.
Happy birthday Carlos.
Sori! And Carlos has a gift RS.
And happy birthday Alfonso!
I'd go for an early unravel.
Go to it, Brian.
I don't mind plunking Ortiz.
It's about time
cc plunked ortiz? Definitely intentional?
CC showing them what happens when you take away our pine tar... ;-)
Awesome! That dumb rule helps us!
Ah, the new transfer rule. I hate it.
Correct call. (Given the dumb rule.)
 No. 0-2 count.
Indeed. This "rule" is fucking bullshit.
Nowadays when, at least among us immoralists, the suspicion arises that the decisive value of an action lies precisely in that which is not intentional, and that all its intentionalness, all that is seen, sensible, or "sensed" in it, belongs to its surface or skin—which, like every skin, betrays something, but conceals still more?
 ah i see.
and yes, that transfer rule is stupid.
 now that's a deeper perspective.
Excellent. I was just thinking, "Hm, I might have Young Jervis bunt." No need! Free advance.
 Thanks. I can't exactly take full credit for it... (See the title of this game thread.)
This is a very good at bat.
Now turn it into gold, Young Jervis!
And he does!!!!!
I like this kid. : )
More gift runs! Everyone's birthday today.
Yeah, I think Solarte was right to stay. But bad break.
about the only way you can get a hit and not drive in the runner from third
well hot damn. Wish we could have gotten a run there but wasn't happening on that.
"Solahtay had to hold becuz the ball didn't go that fahhhh."
What's the ruling? Foul ball, or what???
What the hell? Does the YES crew have anything to say?
Oh, it hit Beltran??
Hm. Which would you take, the HBP or the WP? I think Girardi is right. I will investigate!
Ball didn't hit him. Got it wrong, blue.
The time this is taking is preposterous.
Wow, the NESN crew is just completely confused. They're making me dizzy. They have no idea why the ump didn't place Jeter on third. They're positive he started on second.
Yeah, Girardi is correct, it's better to have the run in and Beltran still batting. Just slightly higher run expectancy (by 0.1 runs).
well that worked out. But yes, it took too long. Efficiency will come with time I hope.
 Jeter actually started on another plane of existence. That was part of the confusion.
alas. time for my work call. love my ipad. i can watch the game and work too!
Goo work, CC. Lead off walk. oi!
Walks are bad, ummmkay, CC?
We can keep Solarte.
ooh solarte. showing off tonight.
CC can still fool the younguns, anyway.
nice close CC. OK, let's score more runs! yay!
woo hoo! happy tex!
I have a feeling Girardi is not going to ask the ump to check Doubront for pine tar.
 he should for kicks.
Red Sox defense: the gift that keeps on giving!
I might rather have hits, but this is fun too.
More oopsies from the Error Sox.
Maybe he's taking lessons from Jacoby. That was a great jump.
Who is this kid wearing Gardner's uniform??
nice! go brett go!
Oh, man. Brian R. joins the party!!
So far, this team is ... doing a lot better than I thought it would.
Another gift run.
Oh, Juan Nieves is going to ask the umpire to check Doubront for pine tar.
Yeah, Doubront is making it easy to steal.
Lovely, just lovely.
Me like. Really really like.
omg that was entertaining. The outfielders need pine tar too.
Jackie Bradley Jr making it look easy out there.
Very sweet. I could watch this inning for another hour, boys, don't rush!
where is thelarmis? This reminds me that our drummer is always dropping his drum sticks. I've recommended pine tar.
boo, how did that inning end?
That's a horseshit strike 3. Maybe you call that on Solarte but not Jeter. Ump must have a 10pm table in the north end somewhere.
Let's go, no base runners for Papi, please.
 I can't take too much of Jerry Remy. But also shut off Ma & Pa after 30 seconds..maybe I'm too picky?
Throw strikes, slightly-less Big Man!
This is Sabathia compensating for lost velocity, right? Or just doesn't have control?
why are the timestamps in central time? Never noticed that before. Or is that just me for some odd reason?
 No adjusting to daylight savings.
shit. stop this cc.
 ah i see.
And Young Jervis ends the madness.
Star of the game?
Wait, it's only the bottom 3rd?? Didn't his game start 90mins ago?
that works better. just hit the damn wall.
 I'm assuming. Only makes sense.
i'm greedy. triple it grittner.
Watching Sabathia in this diminished state is unsettling. Seems he's relying on moving the breaking pitches around, but he has no fastball to offset it so the deception is minimal.
Might be hard to watch a full season of this. Maybe Yanks will score enough runs tonight so it won't matter!
Sox have quietly logged 4 errors in 4 innings
My Little Striky!
Big Fella needs a couple of short innings from here on out.
CC looks okay. I mean, he doesn't tire. So maybe he can still give us big bunches of good innings, even if the long great stretches might be mainly behind him.
Sea Sea Sea Bathia. He's become a gristled wily veteran. He can give you 120 pitches, but can he beat a hot team in an important game. I root for him.
This seems like a fun sloppy game to watch. Do the Sox fielders need pine tar tonight?
Napoli could hide just about anything in that beard.
Got both of 'em!
 Or his gut.
That was a strike, Naps.
 yeah... but he's a bonifide Yankee Killa
 I've always been amazed how baseball players can really look over-weight and yet be so athletic. The ol' David Wells.
I think Gomes could have caught that. He misjudged it. Tough play.
 TV puts 20 lbs on them when they're that tall. In person they are a mountain of a man and athletic.
I love that tin sound when the Yankees are up.
Way to quit on it, Johnny.
And CC has quietly  logged his seventh strikeout.
 Mr. OK ... just ordered the latest Miles "Bootleg" set ... Fillmore 1970.
Eat My Shorts, Shift!
if you are going to play your defense that way, why are you throwing it so far outside?
Must be MLB.tv, but Roberts looks like he's got jaundice ...
Let's pile on.
So-larte ... whoah, oah, a-oah!
There ya go.
Brock Holt! (raises both arms)
solarte is on my fantasy team now. loving all of these rbis.
This team, this offense ... it's been really good so far ... and I was NOT expecting it.
 Yeah I professed they would be f'ing awful to any Yankee fan that said they'd be great - I like being wrong.
If we plate these two I won't be greedy and ask for more.
This helps get the pine tar taste out of my mouth. Captain!
Well, I did say, so okay.
so much fun!
 Great minds, great minds. Another hit for Jeter.
I am TRULY and THOROUGHLY enjoying this
Where's thelarmis? He'll love this run differential!
beltran slows down to a crawl and they completely blow it. i love it!
No error?? Huh. Just an FC.
 That's another inane scoring rule. Something about not being able to assume a double play. In other words, Bollocks.
my god, wtf is with these red sox? the catcher nearly threw that ball into nothingness
Okay, I'm not allowed to ask. But it would be fun.
this is so much fun. Why would the baseball gods want to ruin the fun?
 I'll ask for some salami, it would be grand.
I blame myself.
the baseball gods suck.
Not the way you want to start your big league career.
settle down kid.
oh jetes with the sympathy error.
Okay, let's start again. Just ignore it. Plenty of room for... error.
omg wtf is happening?
There ya go!
Now build on that confidence, Shane.
The Sux better pull the Yankees' finger and fast - soon they'll be so far behind in the standings that they won't even get a whiff.
Still a little Greene...
i'm not sure our lead is big enough for this.
 too true!
Get 'em next time, rook!
Infinity for the poor lad ...
Infinty ... AND BEYOND!!!
ugh. stop the bleeding please.
Carlos with the basket catch.
thanks. finally that inning ended.
Not infinity -- he got an out.
Dusty is so tiny, that really wasn't a fair hit for Brian.
Jaundice, I'm telling y'all ...
0 ERA. all unearned runs.
I mean, a human-sized second baseman would have caught that. Does the official scorer take that into account?
 Hey, right, because of Jeter's error. Heh. And no hits, and a K! So if you don't look too closely (and weren't actually watching the game) it looks like he did fine.
Well, how about an rbi for Jetes here.
Or a walk for his OBP.
How about an RBI for Carlos, then?
Then, how about a three-run homer for Sori?
Is this the thirty fifth inning? Who's our thirty-fifth inning guy?
Oh, they're singing "Sweet Caroline". Isn't that nice?
 Pitt football game? lol it cracks me up every time.
Mike Carp is going to pitch the ninth!
Checking in late. 5 Es? That's brutal.
Yes, it's Carp!
ok almost there.
He's going to throw a knuckler!
This could be a long inning.
"He needs work", I guess.
He's not here, so I can say this, but every time I see Carp, he looks like Nostra to me ...
This is not entertaining baseball
 it would be with a home run. in my opinion.
jeter looks extraordinarily bored though haha
 I don't blame him.
looked like ichiro was swinging at that in the replay
honestly, i'd probably stop watching but i'm still on this work call so no point.
 I just refuse to let this game defeat me
 Holy cow, he does.
I think we're going to get in under four hours...
It's funny how the last 300 people there get to move down behind the plate. If this was at YS, the camera would have NO ONE in the frame.
Yay! Easily skating in under four hours!
and yay! just as my call ends the game ends!
