Arts and Culture
Hey, don't we get to Banter the game???
Alex needs a backup...
Brett's usually a better fielder than that.
Well, Whitley is making them chase, huh?
Uh, Brett, WTF was that?
I guess that was an okay time for Brett to botch a fly ball, with two out and the pitcher coming up.
I'm honored to be in the Arts & Culture thread
Whitley seems to "know how to pitch."
Rizzo and Gritner should have a Taking contest.
Rizzo might be a good Teixeira replacement down the road.
Looks like the bats are as tired as I am
Getting some base runners, but not enough juice to put any across.
There are magnets, inside the plastic, which hold the cup together?
I don't find that a satisfactory explanation.
When he reads it from the page it makes sense.
But it seems kind of expensive, doesn't it? I guess they charge enough for the beer.
Hey, since we're talking baseball under Taster's Cherce, I don't suppose this would be an appropriate topic to throw into the chatter...
I keep reading that the Yanks need more pitching. Probably true but some consistent offense would really help. Maybe a 3run homer once in a while.
That looks like another run. Which is looking pretty serious today.
 Who hasn't had a hunkering for human ear?
One bullet dodged.
 Blue Velvet!
This is fucking awesome. Dellin hits him twice and he just has the two strikes!
That was one of my favorite at bats ever!
I don't like Renteiria, but he's right: just watch the fucking field. It's not the umpires' job to keep an eye (or ear) on the dugout.
He did it! Or they did. Dellin and Chase strand the lead-off triple!
 Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right; here I am stuck in the middle with you...
Wow, Ellsbury is teh suck in May.
Betances dances again.
Hey it finally worked.
There's only so many lead-off triples you can survive.
Oh, not lead-off, but same basic idea.
Et tu, Adam?
Brett would just rather watch. Today especially.
Well that was a waste of an afternoon.
Uh oh. NO PLAYS, PLEASE.
Well well well.
I know Joe wants to squeeze with Ichiro. I know he does.
DON'T DO IT, JOE!
Now I understand why Samardzija has no wins.
Michael thought that was the third out, and Al thought the pitch was clocked at ninety-sive. Long day for the boys in the booth, I guess.
Oh wow, I thought the game was over. Not a waste now.
Wow, Matt Daley. Impressive inning. Whole lotta strikes.
Nice surprise to see a game still in progress! Plus I want blondies for desert.
I was hoping Gritner would have worked that walk there.
Do you think Ellsbury is hurt?
Going out of my head? After hitting a ball that bounced to the head?
This is now agony.
Was everyone called by their mama to dinner?
A balk off?
I guess could be said a walk off balk?
I did have to go stretch out some pizza doughs. I'm back.
Matt Thornton. Not promising.
I would go with D-Rob, but I know that's sacrilege.
Oh, match-ups. Hm. Doesn't seem right when the game could go five more innings. But, maybe it will work out...
I bet Mattpat enjoyed Brett's non-steal.
Hope springs eternal...
Young Jervis will not bunt, we know that. I'll accept a walk, then a Claiborne bunt.
Just what the RIYank ordered!
Okay, mr smartypants, can you lay down a bunt?
OK, I'll accept that bunt.
He did it! Hey Preston!
Now, will Renteria walk John Ryan? Pleeeeeeese walk him, please...
Poor Cub fans.
Now that's what I call a wild pitch.
And I'll take that wild pitch
John Ryan cashes the run!
So, yeah, rbj, not looking like a waste now!
Man, that was a good game.
I hope Alex isn't just getting ready to watch a baseball game in Chicago.
I'm so glad the Cubs used the Run Fairy to pitch!
