Getting Late Early?

phone

Nah, just feels that way is all. The Yanks are in Baltimore for 3 games and this has one of those nail in the coffin vibes about it for the Yanks. Yet even if they do get swept our boys aren’t out of contention for that second wild card. Still, for the first time in a long time the locals might cheer louder than the out of towners.

Good news is that Michael Pineda returns to the team to start on Wednesday.

Hey, anything can happen.

Brett Gardner LF
Derek Jeter SS
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Carlos Beltran DH
Chase Headley 3B
Stephen Drew 2B
Martin Prado RF
Francisco Cervelli C

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Just heard the news: Robin Williams is dead.

2 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:10 pm

Nice start for Brett

3 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:24 pm

[1] Suicide, maybe. Damn.

4 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:25 pm

[2] Now we know why he bats lead-off and not third.

5 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:28 pm

Wow, filthy change-up to get Jones.

6 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:30 pm

Or, not get him, but you know what I mean.

7 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:37 pm

I suspect tomorrow's game will be rained out. The storm we had today is heading east. Got 1.75 inches of rain.

8 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:39 pm

This is a good start to the second. Kind of lucky, actually. Let's capitalize!

9 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:41 pm

[7] We're supposed to get the heavy stuff on Wednesday. NYC maybe Tuesday night, yeah.

10 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:42 pm

Oh, Baltimore, must be even a bit earlier than NYC.

11 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:46 pm

Oh, man.
Better to be lucky than good.

Unbelievable.

When they say you can always see something for the first time. ...

13 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:47 pm

That was certainly . . . Interesting.
Comedy routine by the Orioles in tribute to Robin?

14 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:50 pm

Hoo boy, now Schoop.

So, the Orioles are not good at fielding.

15 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:52 pm

Watching the O's feed. Palmer is excellent tonight. 56 pitches by Norris.

16 coleman42   ~  Aug 11, 2014 6:56 pm

[13] that sequence reminded me of my 9-yr old grandson's team

17 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:01 pm

Hey, nice inning for C-Cap!

18 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:20 pm

Ouch. Oh, man.

I like Machado, he seems like a guy you'd want on your team. And that's a previously-injured knee, right?

19 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:20 pm

Ouch. Hope it's not an ACL.

20 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:20 pm

Oh that looks bad. Poor guy.

21 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:21 pm

[18] other knee. The previously good one.

22 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:22 pm

Man, hopefully that's just a hyper-extension and not something more serious.

23 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:24 pm

Damn.
I think the Orioles have Jones tied up for cheap. I wish we could get him.

24 coleman42   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:25 pm

He twisted his leg in a gruesome manner before he fell, and he's the one who hurt himself against the Yanks by jamming his foot at first base, also a gruesome injury

25 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:28 pm

Yeah, the other knee. I thought it was the front knee that collapsed, but it was the back one.

26 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:28 pm

And Cruz pretty clearly was hit.

27 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:29 pm

WTF is taking so long??

28 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:32 pm

Okay, feel happy to get out of that inning. It must have lasted 40 minutes.

29 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 7:56 pm

Still sore about Mark, Baltimore?

30 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 8:08 pm

Aw crap.

31 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 11, 2014 8:09 pm

Uh. Poo.

32 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 8:12 pm

Knee sprain for Manny? I'm not betting on that.

33 RIYank   ~  Aug 11, 2014 8:39 pm

7 K and no BB. One HR. C-Cap deserved better than 4 ER.

34 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 8:41 pm

At least tie it up.

35 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2014 8:53 pm

Blergh. Night all. Maybe there's some Robin Williams show on TV.

36 thelarmis   ~  Aug 11, 2014 9:07 pm

so...i see we still suck at the baseball.

37 thelarmis   ~  Aug 11, 2014 9:16 pm

shoulda been ball 4...

38 thelarmis   ~  Aug 11, 2014 9:27 pm

chase whitley is not good at pitching.

double digits for the boids.

BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

39 thelarmis   ~  Aug 11, 2014 9:32 pm

I could get register an extra base hit vs. whitley.

40 thelarmis   ~  Aug 11, 2014 9:35 pm

this one goes to eleven

41 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 11, 2014 9:51 pm

Howdy, Nostra!

42 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 11, 2014 9:52 pm

Switched from the Yankees spitting up all over themselves to the A's vs Royals.

GREAT atmosphere in KC to close out a close game!

GO ROYALS!

43 thelarmis   ~  Aug 11, 2014 10:24 pm

cano is killin' it in the field tonight. man, i miss watching him on defense...
