I'm rooting for Tanaka to be OK and for Jeter to get to .275. The rest is gravy.

I really wish the Yankees would completely wave the white flag and call up a bunch of kids (legitimate prospects or otherwise). I'd much rather watch them play out the string than the regular collection of castoffs and reclamation projects.

Plus, bat Jeter leadoff so that he can as many ABs as possible. For no rational reason, just for my own sentimenatl enjoyment.

Oh, and is anyone else amused by the concept of a 9-hole DH? I mean, that must be some deep lineup.

I'm kind of glad it's an afternoon game and I can't watch. Watching this team lately is becoming a chore.

[4] I'm glad it is because I can watch. But I agree. I've struggled to watch lately. Just not too inspiring.

Hey, hey. 2-0.

7 seamus   ~  Aug 21, 2014 12:30 pm

that was kind of exciting! 3 straight hits! 2 runs! more exclamation points!!!!

8 RIYank   ~  Aug 21, 2014 1:47 pm

[7] I bet we all have lots of exclamation marks we were hoping to use but that are just lying around doing nothing.

9 RIYank   ~  Aug 21, 2014 1:49 pm

Wow, big strikeout there.

10 seamus   ~  Aug 21, 2014 2:08 pm

[8] it's sad to see so many homeless exclamation points.

11 seamus   ~  Aug 21, 2014 2:17 pm

beaut of a game by mccarthy. I barely watched but he was just great.

12 rbj   ~  Aug 21, 2014 2:23 pm

I'll take the win even though I missed it.

13 monkeypants   ~  Aug 21, 2014 2:30 pm

Nicely pitched game, enjoyed with one eye open while playing hookey from work.

14 RIYank   ~  Aug 21, 2014 2:55 pm

[13] You Canadians are always playing...

Oh, wait, I see. Never mind.

[10] Those exclamation points are just lazy. They don't want to work. ;>)
