So, no McCann for a week.
But, PiƱeda soon!

Announcers waxing eloquent about P Corey Kluber. Let's just see how it goes after the first inning.

3 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:32 pm

crap.

4 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:34 pm

For the record for those late to the game: the Fox announcers are Kenny Albert (Marv's younger brother) and former Dodger Eric Karros.

5 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:39 pm

[4] Vast improvement over the usual.

(Not because they're great, either.)

6 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:41 pm

[5] Actually I think they're the second line announcing team...Kenny's a New Yorker so might be more objective.

7 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:47 pm

please don't be hurt.

8 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:48 pm

[6] i teach second line, but won't be playing any on either of my gigs tonight.

9 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:53 pm

nice catch, cap!

10 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 12:59 pm

pauley o sounding like he wants to manage one day.

think he'd ever get ejected for arguing?

11 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:00 pm

Broken rib there

12 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:01 pm

WTF?

Does lean way in or something? Why does he get hit so much?

13 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:01 pm

ouchie!

what's up with frankie?

man, that has to hurt. damn.

14 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:02 pm

did santana just pat him on the side? twice?!

jeesh.

15 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:05 pm

[2] Like I said before, let's see how Kluber does after the 3rd inning!

16 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:16 pm

A hit!

17 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:23 pm

a rally!

now, i'd very much like an earl weaver special. let's kill this rally and rid ourselves of the base cloggers.

18 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:26 pm

that pitch had a lot of movement on it.

19 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:26 pm

But, no runs.

20 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:26 pm

kluber lang.

let's club the kluber!

21 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:27 pm

terrible swing.

22 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:36 pm

Just came back from few minutes at my desk with radio on. TV feed is 1-2 minutes behind the radio, much more than the usual 10 seconds or so.

23 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:52 pm

I guess we'll have to wait until Corey leaves the game?

24 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:56 pm

[23] yup. hopefully, he has just one more inning in him. his pitch count is getting up there...

[22] yup.

25 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:57 pm

fuck. our good minor league pitcher - luis severino - just went on the DL with an oblique injury...

26 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:57 pm

i hope derek makes history now!

27 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:58 pm

What's up, gang? This tribe pitcher is no joke apparently.

28 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:59 pm

i'm pretty much out after derek's at-bat.

gotta grab some grub and get to soundcheck. 2 gigs tonight...

29 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 1:59 pm

Comon Jetes

30 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:00 pm

Move over, Honus.

31 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:01 pm

Nice!

32 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:01 pm

So we all know how to pronounce 'Honus' now, huh?

33 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:02 pm

Now that's two weak-ass hits.

Should we offer to give them back?

34 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:02 pm

well, the tie and go ahead hits were kinda lame, but...

CONGRATS, CAPTAIN!!!

fucking awesome.

35 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:03 pm

wait a minute.

they didn't take the ball outta play?

what?! why???

36 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:04 pm

[32] Ha-Nis.

right? weird.

37 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:04 pm

c'mon, Beli - hit 11 grand slams in 1 at-bat, with 2 men on base.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!

38 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:05 pm

that looked low, at first glance..

really low, at second glance...

39 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:05 pm

what are you looking at??? : /

40 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:07 pm

damn. 9 k's...

blow j's losing a close one in the 9th.

41 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:08 pm

drew with another chance to make earl weaver proud.

42 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:09 pm

Unfair.

43 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:10 pm

[36] Yeah, pretty much. The 'o' is like in 'John'. Until this week I thought it was like in 'Joan'.

44 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:10 pm

crap. double digit strikeouts for The Klube.

[42] thanks for keeping me from getting to double digit posts in a row.

this is my last for today. let's hope we get to their pen.

GO YANKS!!!

45 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:11 pm

[37] I was taught at a young age by my father, born 1903, that it's pronounced 'HOE- nis.' Not Ha-nis.

46 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:17 pm

Oh, Rich Hill. Too bad.

47 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:18 pm

[45] I guess my father taught me too. But all the announcers (radio, YES, national broadcasts) are saying it with the short 'o'.

48 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:22 pm

Smart play, Chase.

49 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:22 pm

Heads-up Headley. Very Heady play. (Etc.)

50 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:25 pm

One out, runners in the corners for Navarro, Jays down one in the ninth. Man, I hope Nathan is better than I think he is.

51 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:27 pm

[48] That's 'cause they're not as old as I am!

52 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:28 pm

Yay! Way to go, other Chase.

53 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:28 pm

Toronto ties it on a Navarro single.

54 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:34 pm

OK, 3 non-Kluber innings to go...

55 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:39 pm

I don't think we're scoring three.
Oh well.

56 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:52 pm

Eat shit, blue.

57 coleman42   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:56 pm

[57] My sentiments exactly

58 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:57 pm

Fucking Bollocks!

59 rbj   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:58 pm

Been checking in on the game while driving all over Toledo. Frustrating. Get runners in scoring position with no outs and continue to fail to get them in? Yeesh.

60 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 2:59 pm

Joba gets the L and the Jays get the W. Damn, that game was looking good.

61 RIYank   ~  Aug 9, 2014 3:10 pm

Well, good afternoon, gents. Tough game.

62 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 9, 2014 3:10 pm

Well that sucked. Get 'em tomorrow.

63 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 3:20 pm

Great - Joba coughed up the win in Toronto...

64 thelarmis   ~  Aug 9, 2014 3:21 pm

Off to work! Then...beer : )

65 thelarmis   ~  Aug 10, 2014 12:58 am

now...BEER!!!

(fuck yeah!)

66 thelarmis   ~  Aug 10, 2014 2:45 am

i just watched The Machine (however old he is...) beat the Shit Sox with an oppo field homer in the bottom of the ... 19th inning!

i can't stand the Hate-los, but it's always soooo fucking FANTASTIC to watch the Shit Sox lose. especially in this fashion.
