It’s Shane Greene again and all I can think of is Aaron Small. Please, let this guy be another Aaron Small.

Derek Jeter SS
Jacoby Ellsbury CF

I remember his 10-0 season!

He went 21-12 in the AL. Dianagram would like that!

2 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:04 pm

They win the next 2 they are only 3 back at the break. Lose 2 and they are 7 back.

Aie.

3 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:17 pm

clean, quick inning.

4 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:19 pm

5 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:23 pm

i'll take it.

6 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:27 pm

BOO BLUE!!!

7 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:28 pm

8 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:33 pm

Nifty Shifty!

9 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:45 pm

i love watching jeter get hits.

i don't love watching umps thwart our rallies...

10 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 3:47 pm

1-0 on the Tex double.

captain thrown out at home...

11 MSM35   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:01 pm

Aaron Small couldn't break glass. This kid throws hard and may have a baseball future.

12 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:15 pm

heya folks! Way to hold down the thread thelarmis!

13 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:19 pm

disappointing captain.

14 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:20 pm

[12] thanks man! you're gonna have to take over here pretty soon. gotta meet my girls at the park, then i'm having a couple of my students who just graduated over.

should be a fun evening. a yankee win would make it that much better!

15 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:26 pm

[14] very nice evening plans! I have at least an hour or two before biking out to meet the lady and her friends for some beers. I can assist for a bit.

16 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:26 pm

what? I didn't even realize it was a no hitter. nice work greene.

17 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:30 pm

fuck. i may be bad luck.

18 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:35 pm

very nice strikeout.

19 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:49 pm

oh boo. we are sooooo bad.

20 MSM35   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:53 pm

Ichiro has no homers and 11 rbi's for the season. That means we on this board have as many dingers as him. Congrats Banterers.

21 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:53 pm

still here! change of plans. gonna walk the beltline in a bit instead of meeting at the park...

greene has thrown 4.2 innings of no-hit baseball in both of his starts. it's not you, seamus!

22 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:54 pm

Dammit, KJ.

23 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:56 pm

here's when we lose the game...

24 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:57 pm

So, greene is very effective first couple times through the order basically? Just wondering how he'll do once the league gets to know him. He's got good movement on his pitches.

yes! needed that double play.

25 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:57 pm

nice DP, Brian!

26 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:58 pm

[15] whachya drinkin' tonight? i'll be getting into the Full Sail ESB. it was the official beer of my wedding and i still have plenty left! happy to share it : )

27 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 4:58 pm

[21] i hope you're right!

28 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:01 pm

So glad we got out of that. We really need some feckin runs though.

29 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:01 pm

[26] nice choice! I wish I could have some. I was at their brewery in Oregon last August. Had a real good time there. I'm not sure what i'll be drinking tonight. I have a couple of great growlers in the fridge but i'm meeting at this bar I don't go to often. And I need to be thrifty so it may be 1 or 2 good beers before going cheap.

30 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:02 pm

nice, kid!

31 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:04 pm

[29] HOLY WOW!!! I would *love* to go out to their brewery. Did you take a tour? How was their food? Buy anything from the gift shop? I have 2 t-shirts, a long sleeve tee, coasters, and a sticker...

32 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:07 pm

That was a damn good catch there.

33 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:07 pm

crap. that was a nice catch...

34 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:10 pm

[31] you definitely need to go...

woah, yay captain!

35 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:11 pm

JETER!!!

i fucking *love* my captain!!!

36 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:12 pm

KJ made up for missing that line drive last inning - nice hit, good baserunning, excellent hustle.

2-0 Pinstripes

37 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:13 pm

[31] We didn't do the tour. We were ambitious enough to hit 3 breweries while we were in that town for just a few hours. There is a second brewery just down the road (as in a two block walk) and a third brewery that is just a 5 minute drive. I had to drink somewhat conservatively since I was driving so stuck to samples. Still, it was fine. Brought back a coozie as I was already broke at that point too. But you do need to go. It's so beautiful there and, well, there are three great breweries so close together! Oh, and after the breweries we drove up to the top of Mount Hood and saw where they filmed the Shining.

38 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:15 pm

[37] sounds awesome. oregon is beautiful country. i played there 3 summers ago, but nowhere near Mt. Hood.

39 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:16 pm

nice ellsbury!

40 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:16 pm

RBJ!!!

41 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:20 pm

[38] I love oregon. It's on the to do list to go back out there with the girlfriend. Btw, the band is going in to record next weekend. At a friend's home studio. I'm super excited!

42 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:22 pm

omg that wasn't even close. fuck. I'm ok with taking that chance to send ellsbury but you would hope the third base coach has a better feel than that.

43 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:26 pm

[41] have a great recording session!

[42] i missed it. i probably won't see much of the last 3rd of the game...

44 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:26 pm

Man, the kid has pitched well. Fun!

45 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:27 pm

wow, he's on fire. go go greene!

46 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:32 pm

I imagine he's done. What a great performance by Greene.

47 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:51 pm

Just tuned in. Looks like the kid pitched a gem.

48 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 12, 2014 5:53 pm

Whew

49 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 6:02 pm

Go Greene!

Yeah Jetes!

This is my last batter of the game. Better come home to a win...

50 thelarmis   ~  Jul 12, 2014 6:02 pm

ah, alright. he still had another multi-hit game.

Hamma Time!!!

51 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 6:03 pm

[49] have fun sir.

52 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 12, 2014 6:06 pm

Wheels!

53 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 6:06 pm

phew. That was hit hard.

54 seamus   ~  Jul 12, 2014 6:09 pm

woot! Great job team. wow, that was a breath of fresh air. ok, signing off. have a good night folks.

55 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 12, 2014 7:39 pm

[26] Am I the only one who thought Full Sail was a college somewhere in Florida?

56 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 12, 2014 9:05 pm

Shane Green's a better story for than Aaron Small IMHO, because he's a young Yankee rookie brought up through our ranks. Small had already pitched with several MLB teams before the Yankees brought him up.

Speaking of rookie pitchers, I saw a piece on a Japanese sports show analyzing Tanaka's injury. They had some pitching expert, either former pitcher or coach or sports doctor, I didn't get his name. He was demonstrating how much stress the splitter puts on the elbow ligaments.

The pay-off? According to their data, Tanaka threw 513 splitters in his entire season last year. This year, before the all-star break he's already thrown 405

57 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2014 1:56 am

[55] Full Sail IS a music school in the Orlando area. it's also the name of my favorite beer, from Oregon : )

not sure which came first - the beer is from 1987...

[56] thanks for those numbers. i guess the emphasis is on numb...
