Man, oh man, how I love sweet plantains, aka plátanos maduros.

Alongside chicken, rice, and beans, that there’s some good Bronx style home cookin’ fuh ya.

Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Derek Jeter SS
Carlos Beltran RF
Brian McCann C
Alfonso Soriano DH
Mark Teixeira 1B
Kelly Johnson 3B
Yangervis Solarte 2B
Ichiro Suzuki LF

It’s our man Tanaka with another challenge–the formidable Angels offense.

Never mind the late hour:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Gotta get that run differential turned around.

2 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 6:30 pm

Had a ribeye n baked potato. Cooked a 4 oz. Kansas City steak for the hounds after a morning at the park. Looks like the Jack-in-the-Pulpits are finally coming up.

3 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 6:36 pm

I had everything for some Mexican food -- not the platanos, but my normal stuff. And then, it was 4:00, and then it was 5:00, and I just didn't feel like it.
So I'm gonna eat guacamole and chips and drink a margarita or two.

4 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 6:44 pm

And I don't seen how Donald Sterling continues as the Clippers' owner. Good thing Jeter is in NY and not LA.

5 Sliced Bread   ~  Apr 27, 2014 6:47 pm

Jervis was scratched with a sore shoulder. Roberts is in his place.
Let's go Yanks!

6 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 6:51 pm

Crap Sox lost big.

7 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:02 pm

[6] Watched the whole thing. Including the post-game interview with Lester. Loved it. (And I've already admitted that I don't dislike Lester at all, but still.) Xander Bogaerts botched a dp ball, too, which triggers RSN phobias.

But I don't get the [4] Jeter reference. I only vaguely know what the Sterling thing is -- he made some bizarro racial comments about photos of his wife, right?

8 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:04 pm

[7] He didn't want his girlfriend to put pictures of her with black men up on instagram, including Magic Johnson (whom he doesn't want at Clipper games) and Matt Kemp, who is also biracial.

Anyone feel like going to Clipper games when the visit the Knicks or Nets next year?

9 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:08 pm

[8] Yeah, huh.
I mean, it doesn't ever surprise me that there are still race issues in America, at all. But how can somebody be that batshit crazy and be in the position Sterling is in? Mind-boggling.

10 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:10 pm

Good start.

11 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:10 pm

Pasta ...

12 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:10 pm

Less good.

13 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:13 pm

siddown, albert!

14 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:13 pm

Sit down Prince Albert, you've been canned.

15 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:14 pm

[13] Yo, moderately long time no see.

16 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:14 pm

[9] If you don't like black people, don't buy and NBA franchise.

17 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:15 pm

[10] Marge Schott wasn't that long ago and Sterling has owned the Clippers for forever. He's really a relic of a previous generation ...

18 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:15 pm

[16] and don't marry them, either.

19 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:17 pm

How about some baseball chatter, folks

20 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:18 pm

[18] See, that's the thing. A guy who doesn't like black people, and he marries one and owns an NBA franchise. Well, I guess I can sort of see it -- maybe he's into the 'ownership' aspect. But it has to be brain damage or something, right?

Uh oh, Tanaka walk. Unusual, and bad.

21 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:18 pm

damn.

22 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:19 pm

[19] Hey, cool, baseball meta-chatter!

23 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:20 pm

Oooooh.

Yeah,baby, tanakalakadingdong!

24 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:20 pm

Tanaka-san!

25 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:21 pm

good!

26 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:22 pm

[22] yeah! That's what I like about this place!

27 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:22 pm

[1] word.

28 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:22 pm

3k's, a walk, and a hit with just 20 pitches in the 1st. That would have taken Phil Hughes at least 45.

29 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:22 pm

[26] oh, but there's sooo much more!

30 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:23 pm

[28] true! but, he kicked ass this weekend and in his last start...

31 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:24 pm

with apologies to coleman42, i need to chime in on the earlier dinner comments, since everyone knows how much of a foodie i am...

just finished an excellent meal - spicy thai basil with chicken. washed down with a barq's root beer. the asian noodle house is sooo good, we're having them cater part of our wedding this summer!

32 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:26 pm

Oof. That is one nasty pitch.

33 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:27 pm

crap. i remember when this guy first came up and got his feet wet in the bullpen. we beat him up pretty bad...

34 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:27 pm

[28] Like starter Phil Hughes could get 3 strikeouts in an inning ...

35 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:27 pm

[31] You saving money on a band ... and playing your own wedding?

=)

36 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:29 pm

Man those plantains look good. When they have that char to counteract the sweet combined with the silky beans and rice , yum.

This is a big time game tonight...

Donald Sterling has been a laughingstock since the '80s. You have to see Snoop Dogg's message to Sterling on YouTube. Sorry don't have the link handy, google it.

37 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:30 pm

[15] Hi, RI!

yeah, it's been a minute, but i've been keeping up on every banter post and reading all the game thread comments.

work goes late and i was in NY all weekend for my middle nephew's bar mitzvah. i got to watch some Yankee baseball at parents' house. yeah, it was tough finding the station yesterday. my pop found fox sports 1 on fios channel 83.

this week is going to be really hectic, between teaching and starting to move into our new home!

38 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:31 pm

[34] HA!

[35] Yup!!! : )

39 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:32 pm

Oh, shut up Kruk.

40 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:33 pm

That's 4.

41 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:33 pm

nice!

42 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:33 pm

[39] yes, please.

43 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:34 pm

i can't stand ianetta.

44 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:35 pm

[37] Geez, you're buying a house?
I guess I was wrong about the difference between drummers and savings bonds.

45 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:35 pm

fuck. TWO walks. hmmm...

46 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:36 pm

[44] only ONE matures and makes money?!

47 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:36 pm

[31] we had spaghetti and Greg Norman Shiraz, which I'm still enjoying.

48 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:37 pm

not solarte, espn. roberts. solarte is out with a sore shoulder.

worldwide leader in sports!

49 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:39 pm

[44] not buying - renting...for now. we'll look to buy in a few years. it all depends on schooling. we're pretty much set for the next 3 years.

50 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:40 pm

[46] Apparently not!

51 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:41 pm

[49] Ohhhhh.
I feel better. My world was trembling a little.

52 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:42 pm

Dang, is this sumbitch unhittable??
Teixeira will work some pitch-repel magic and draw a walk.

53 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:43 pm

This dude is just firing 96 and 97 mph lasers over and over again. Man!

54 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:43 pm

Argh!

55 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:44 pm

Not having a good feeling about this game...

56 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:48 pm

If Trout wants to make a productive out, I'll take it.

57 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:49 pm

[35] cult - we're looking to do the entire thing as cheap as we can. we're having what's called a "bohemian" style wedding in our backyard.

i'm wearing jeans!!! (at my fiancee's request. yes, she's a keeper!) how badass is that?!

as far as the music goes, yeah, i'm taking care of that : )

during the ceremony, i'm having a former's students' dad and a very close friend play Bach pieces (separately), on piano and acoustic guitar, respectively.

the two main dance pieces will be performed by a duo of dear friends. i have one guy playing the piano, with the other singing.

my fusion group will play an original jazz composition of ours:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKIinyEXTfY

then, i'm gonna have a bunch of different combos. my pop will sing and play a few songs, including "Here Comes The Sun." my brother and sister-in-law will probably do a duet together and i might assemble a couple of other trio tunes that i'll play, or something. i'm not allowed to turn it into a gig, so most of it will be drummer-less, unless some friends/students sit in...

at some point, we will just have music being played and the house will be wired up so the sound system is inside/outside and all throughout.

most importantly, however - beer.

58 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:50 pm

Ooooh!
Okay, that's one (and 5).

59 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:52 pm

[51] you have a few tremble free years left.

60 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:52 pm

Tenakkkkka looking good early on.

61 seamus   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:52 pm

[57] sounds like a grand time! I'm excited for you thelarmis!

This angels pitcher does seem unhittable thus far.

62 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:53 pm

Drill him in the ass, Tanaka! lol...

63 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:53 pm

WTF???

64 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:54 pm

holy crap.

65 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:54 pm

[46] Greg Norman makes wine?

[57] Sounds perfect!

66 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:54 pm

Whew.

(Translation for Toledoans: phew.)

67 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:54 pm

wahoo!!!

68 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:55 pm

Pitcher's best friend.

Still, 50 pitches through 3 is ... not optimal.

69 seamus   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:55 pm

nice! wow, i must be way behind yinz.

70 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:56 pm

[62] i'd love that! i'm not a big poo-holes fan...

[61] thanks, seamus! later on in the summer, we'll have a party at my parents' house in NY, so friends and (extended) family can make it out. i'm hoping a few penn staters make it to that! we're keeping it really small here in the ATL.

71 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:57 pm

Dear cult & RI,

I do NOT look like Mike Carp. harrumph.

the only similarity is our income. (i wish!)

[there is a photo or two of him where i can see a very slight resemblance...]

72 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:58 pm

[68] 50 through 3 is okay. He'll go seven.

And a hit for the good guys!

73 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:58 pm

beat the shift outta them!

74 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 7:59 pm

[71] Isn't Mike Carp the one who looks Amish? Or the singer from the Spin Doctors?

I'm a bit doped up on cold/flu meds..maybe I should just troll tonight.

75 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:00 pm

[65] He does, and not bad shiraz at that. I always figured you would get a lot of Aussie wine in Japan, no?

76 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:00 pm

[66] Thanks!

Bizarre.

77 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:00 pm

[74] Not troll! Linger? Damn, what is it when you read but don't post??

78 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:00 pm

[65] good stuff. Uses his name, originally Australian wine, now uses California grapes, I think. But I digress, back to the game.

79 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:00 pm

it's no secret we all hate the halos, and their anaheim name is beyond brutal. but, how 'bout this qualm with their moniker...

The Los Angeles Angels = The The Angels Angels

jeesh. : /

80 seamus   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:01 pm

[74] and remove the entertainment that doped up mr Jazz promises us?

81 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:01 pm

Let!s go Ichiro!

82 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:02 pm

Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside!

83 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:02 pm

[65] Thanks, Mr. OK! and, feel better : )

84 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:02 pm

He hit the bull!

85 seamus   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:02 pm

woah that was bizarro

86 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:02 pm

dammit, ichi.

87 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:03 pm

[75] Yes, lots of Aus wine joints. They always have the flag hanging outside.

[80] 'Man..that part when Wayne Shorter & Jaco were trading riffs was like...wow, too groovy man...'

88 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:03 pm

[71] Too late, the association has stuck!

[77] Lurk.

89 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:03 pm

[74] good call, Jazz! He totally looks like Chris Barron from the Spin Doctors (I do not), and does look Amish (i *definitely* do not!).

90 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:04 pm

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit.

91 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:05 pm

[88] Noooooooooooooooooooo ; )

[87] you are under the weather...report!

92 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:06 pm

[77] Lurk.

93 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:06 pm

An incontinent Tony Siragusa ... now there's an association I totally didn't need ...

94 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:07 pm

Another double, and RIYank is wayyyyy behind the banter [92].

95 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:08 pm

mike crap.

96 seamus   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:08 pm

[36] just watched snoop. I enjoyed that.

97 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:09 pm

Here's a pretty damning Carp pic.

Although, now that I look at the picture, Carp has a kind of weak chin. Thelarmis doesn't have that.

98 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:10 pm

KKKKKK

99 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:10 pm

just setting up the DP...

100 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:11 pm

Freacking cripes.
This is a pattern.
Double, harmless out, free pass.
Now we should get a dp I guess.

[97] hmmm, yeah, i guess i can't argue too very much there.

i definitely don't have that mole on the cheek! and, yeah, my chin is definitely longer; i have a more oval face than him.

i just thank you for sharing a photo of him in a seattle uni and not the shit sox!

keep 'em at 1...

114 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:20 pm

[91] thelarmis, I saw Wayne Shorter and his quartet a few weeks back. Brian Blade on drums kicks serious azz!

Tanaka was due a stinker, no biggie.

115 seamus   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:20 pm

damn.

116 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:21 pm

[114] yeah man - and john pattitucci on bass and danilo perez on piano. long standing band. they'll have a new studio record on Blue Note later this year. Brian Blade's new BN release comes out on Tuesday!

117 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:21 pm

Got 'em!

118 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:22 pm

OK. Limited damage

119 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:22 pm

7 Ks

120 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:22 pm

[114] One run in four innings isn't exactly a stinker.

121 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:22 pm

71 through 4 is ... sub-optimal.

122 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:23 pm

i believe his K:BB ratio on the season is still at a stellar 7:1

123 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:24 pm

yeah, he's still throwing a pretty nice game and should certainly give us 6 "quality" innings. perhaps, even 7...

124 seamus   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:24 pm

ok i think i'm offline for the rest of the night. enjoy the game all! Go Yankees!

125 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:25 pm

i'd like for my captain to tie this game right now.

126 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:25 pm

[120] Whaddayamean, he needs to go 32-0 this year and beat Gibson's single season ERA record!

127 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:26 pm

Ciao, Seamus.

128 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:29 pm

Ah. And, he couldn't even throw a strike when he was trying to pipe one. Good sign! Maybe he's lost the zone.

129 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:29 pm

Dare I say it, but this game reminds me of the typical 'Yankees are terrible when facing pitcher they haven't seen before' game.

130 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:31 pm

i kinda wish beli would've attempted a steal.

you know, a play!

135 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:38 pm

Trout flounders!

[135] you've been sitting on that one awhile, huh?

bye-bye, albert.

139 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:40 pm

The Sox should trade Carp to the Angels. He and Trout really should be on the same team.

140 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:41 pm

apparently, tanaka is the 3rd yankee to begin his pitching career with the team with 7+ Ks in his first 5 games. (CC & Moose) [from e@%* stats]

141 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:41 pm

[135] That sounds fishy to me

Big one there, very big.

Ichiro a little rickety there. Tanaka picks him up!

151 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:44 pm

[139] bring Tim Salmon outta retirement.

he needs 1 homer for 300 anyway...

152 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:45 pm

Ah Tony siragoesso

153 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:45 pm

[150] i just called him poo-holes, didn't say he stunk! : )

154 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:46 pm

[132] remember most of the Yanks this year are new to the Club, but they're typical veterans who have to have 2+ ABs to get a feel for the guy. Maybe we can wait till Angels bullpen kicks in.

155 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:46 pm

Runs, please!

156 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:47 pm

[151] don't forget Sid Bream.

157 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:47 pm

There's the Teixeira pitch repellant I was looking for.

158 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:48 pm

i'll take it.

let's have a big inning, fellas!

159 Alex Belth   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:49 pm

I love Tanaka. He really pitches even on a day when he doesn't have much control. No matter what happens in the 6th he's at least kept the team in the game so far. He's fun to watch.

160 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:49 pm

[156] i live in Atlanta; i can never forget sid bream!

[i don't eat fish, though...]

161 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:50 pm

[156] Scale back on the fish puns, will ya guys?

162 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:51 pm

[161] see - now that's a good one!

163 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:52 pm

Runs, I have to switch to Mad Men soon.

164 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:53 pm

Well well.
Too bad Teixeira is slow as a fish.

165 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:53 pm

YAY!!!

awesome.

and another stoopid fan that almost touched the ball. jeesh.

166 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:53 pm

[162] I'm no brain sturgeon but I DO like a good pun.

167 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:53 pm

Old pro Roberts pokes one!

168 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:54 pm

Okay, that's a run -- Ichiro didn't strike out at all!

169 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:54 pm

[161] Very finny.

170 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:54 pm

tied up!

171 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:54 pm

Tied!

172 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:55 pm

Oh, hey, Brian Bass and Matt Pike. Yeah, there must be a baseball Sturgeon, right?
They should all play for the Marlins.

173 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:55 pm

[164] I thought you said he motors? Fish swim fast, run not to. Ichiro gets the run in!

174 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:55 pm

[166] oy vey!

[164] marlins are fast fish. maybe they should all play for miami...

175 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:56 pm

[161] I think they're starting to tail off now ...

176 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:57 pm

These announcers got one thing right tonight. Richards does look like AJ and Jered Weaver.

177 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:57 pm

ooh boy...

[172] the baseball sturgeon was on [166]

as far as Florida is concerned...great minds drink alike! [174]

178 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:57 pm

BA against Richards up to 75 pitches: .176.
After 75 pitches: .300.

There's hope!

180 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 8:59 pm

[173] I must have been attempting irony.

Oh, also George Gefilte, I forgot about him.

181 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:00 pm

Well that didn't last long.

182 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:01 pm

Clam up on these fish puns.

183 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:01 pm

[172] resurrect "Gill" Hodges and don't forget our Catfish Hunter.

184 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:03 pm

double digit Ks!

185 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:04 pm

Chester Guppy

Bobby Sturgeon

Art Herring

186 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:05 pm

Tanaka real upset with himself. He can't win every game, and tonight he's battling and still looks damn good.

187 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:05 pm

[182][183]etc Now you're just trawling with all these fish puns.

188 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:06 pm

Sky rockets in flight...

189 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:06 pm

[183] There was a Johnny Gill.

and we can't forget Steve Lake. well, i mean, we can, but we shouldn't.

190 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:06 pm

[187] It's the net, of course there's trawling!

191 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:08 pm

Frickin Trout.

192 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:09 pm

stayed up just a bit too long...

193 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:09 pm

[190] Load of pollocks here if you ask me, I'm going to go look for more a serious comment thread.

194 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:09 pm

Chester Guppy? Really?

195 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:09 pm

awesome!

unravel now, please.

196 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:10 pm

[187] So I'm a shrimp. Let's lob ster the ball over to Mark

198 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:12 pm

shit mac.

199 RIYank   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:15 pm

Sigh.

200 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:15 pm

I have to get offline momentarily. Hope you guys can pull this one out for us.

202 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:17 pm

I had a feeling Fonzy would launch one there, not to be.

203 Chyll Will   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:17 pm

Man, you guys are soooo lucky I don't eat seafood...

204 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:21 pm

[203] i was thinkin' that before!

tanaka is done. 11 ks.

nice ovation for his effort.

205 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:22 pm

With all of the people available in the world to choose from, how in the HELL did we end up having to endure the collected wit and wisdom of John Kruk on Sunday Night Baseball???

206 rbj   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:22 pm

[188] No SVB here.

207 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:24 pm

[205] I wish I could just tuna him out ...

208 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:27 pm

Damn, Warren caught Trout leaning there.

Just not quick enough.

209 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:27 pm

[205] yes, this. i've been thinking that the entire time.

what a blabbering - and blubbering - buffoon.

210 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:29 pm

fuck yeah!!

211 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:29 pm

[205][209] It's almost as if being an over-weight, anti-intellectual buffoon somehow appeals to the ESPN audience...shirley I'm mistaken?

212 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:30 pm

Trout...catch and release.

213 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:31 pm

[211] hardly

214 Chyll Will   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:31 pm

I must be tripping off these spare ribs I just cooked up; I thought I just heard Coltrane on the organ closing out the inning...

215 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:36 pm

BIG TEX!!!

that was *glorious* : )

216 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:36 pm

Time for the relief corps!

217 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:36 pm

[214] i'm sure you did! that's my good friend, Ed Alstrom : )

218 Chyll Will   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:36 pm

See, I'm thinking the Yanks need more jazz in between innings. Thelarmis, please tell Ed to get on that...

219 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:37 pm

LOAF PINCHER GOES BOOM!!!

220 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:37 pm

221 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:38 pm

tanaka can't lose!

222 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:38 pm

[211] No. And don't call me Shirley!

223 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:39 pm

[218] he's been spicing it up!

he's the fucking MAESTRO!!!

224 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:40 pm

The kid's at 111 pitches. When does he come out?

225 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:45 pm

Way to take the ump out of the equation!

229 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:50 pm

Liking what I'm seeing from Warren so far this season.

230 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 9:52 pm

Alright boys, hurry up and put this one to bed, Daddy's got some Game of Thrones to watch in about 15 minutes.

247 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:15 pm

248 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:16 pm

Just a fly ball ball Fonz.

252 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:20 pm

Pretty fucking sorry, Sori.

Uh, don't ask Leon about his mother right here ...

268 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:33 pm

That's the fastest I've seen Roberts move.

269 thelarmis   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:35 pm

273 coleman42   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:37 pm

Now I have a good feeling about this game! Night all.

274 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:37 pm

Yes! Here's to you, Mr. Robertson. Eat shit, scioscia! Night all.

275 jjmerlock   ~  Apr 27, 2014 10:39 pm

Wow. How delightful. That's 3 things I hate - sunday night baseball, baseball on ESPN, and playing the Angels. And it actually ended well.

Fucking ump. At least he got that last call right.

Was really worried Soriano's 8th inning AB was going to come back to kill us.
