Hey, a hit!

2 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 6:42 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, Stephen Drew!

3 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 6:44 pm

Aw dammit

4 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 6:52 pm

Damn, Cappie is efficient, too.

5 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 6:58 pm

Damn, what a catch. And on turf.

6 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:27 pm

Whew.

7 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:52 pm

Hmm, first and second, no outs, how are we not going to score this time?

8 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:52 pm

your good luck charm is now here. sick drummer is out of bed and watching the game. catcher from my adopted city hits a double, member of my favorite 300-300 club walks. we're in business!

9 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:53 pm

[7] we're going to.

10 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:53 pm

see!!!

fuck yeah.

you're welcome. ; )

11 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:53 pm

Hot damn!

12 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:55 pm

gritner better come around to score. whether it's on this play or another. looks likes it's gonna be another. must plate him!

13 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:56 pm

Yay for Sick Drummer!!!

14 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:57 pm

Well, I guess that's a hit with RISP, but not exactly what I had in mind.

15 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 7:58 pm

i hope monkeypants is at the game and saw that "hit" live in person! : )

16 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:00 pm

let's chase loup.

17 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:01 pm

What the hell are you looking at, Chase???

18 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:01 pm

louped.

that was absolutely awful.

better not be a dp here.

we really need gritner to score. c'mon, rbj!

19 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:02 pm

Oh jeez, Keystone Blue Jays.

Thank you.

20 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:02 pm

Usually when I get home and flip on the tv I witness horribleness right away. The top 7 frame, however, has been quite fun. : )

21 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:02 pm

fucking *beautiful*!!!

DIONNER!!!

22 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:03 pm

Hell fucking yeah! SNOZZBERRY!!!!!

23 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:03 pm

Holy smokes!!!

A bullet! Hooray, Jacoby!!

24 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:03 pm

Me!

25 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:03 pm

[21] that was such a great throw, i figured he deserved an extra "n" in his name.

26 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:04 pm

[25] YOU!

awesome. i'm loving this inning!

27 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:05 pm

[25] It looks better that way.

28 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:05 pm

It's nice to score runs.

29 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:06 pm

sadly, jeter's AB was quite predictable.

top of the order should prolly be:

rbj
gritner

30 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:06 pm

[27] image is everything.

31 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:10 pm

oreo's are winning big

tigers are winning

king felix goes for the M(ontero)'s later

32 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:11 pm

think i might watch the lester-weaver A's-hatelos matchup later...

33 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:16 pm

kevin Pillar? really?!

34 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:16 pm

i've chased everyone away.

well, i guess i am contagious...

35 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:17 pm

Crap.

36 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:19 pm

crap.

keep this where it is.

37 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:21 pm

Oy.

38 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:22 pm

fuck.

39 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:22 pm

Not optimal.

40 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:26 pm

Holy gawd.

Plenty of E to go around tonight.

41 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:26 pm

Ohhhhhhh, fuck!

(God, we better not lose this fucking game...we better not lose this motherfucking baseball game.)

42 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:26 pm

jeesh. nobody can throw the ball.

where was warren???

43 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:29 pm

Isn't there some rule about being hit by a strike?

44 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:29 pm

jesus. stop letting this unravel.

well, he did kinda turn into it...

45 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:31 pm

Phew!

46 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:31 pm

Exhale...

47 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:31 pm

Whew.
Survivable. We're still in command...

48 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:32 pm

[43] Like, in the strike zone? Yes, if you're hit by a pitch in the strike zone it's just a strike, not a HBP.

49 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:32 pm

whew.

chances for geico runs are slim.

must. win.

50 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:41 pm

[48] Right, ok. That one wasn't a strike, was it? But it seemed close enough to warrant asking. Plus (and I know this isn't enforced), there's also a rule about making an effort to get the fuck out of the way, isn't there?

51 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:42 pm

Jazz checking in. They're facing Loup? Hope they 'loop' a few bloop singles! (rimshot!)

52 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:47 pm

Booooo!

53 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:54 pm

Please throw strikes.

54 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 8:58 pm

[50] Yes, you aren't awarded a base if the umpire determines that you didn't try to avoid the pitch. (However, I have never seen that!)

55 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:01 pm

get the out, man!

56 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:01 pm

[54] i believe i actually did see that once! can't remember who it was though...

57 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:02 pm

A terrific acquisition. I don't think we had anyone like him in our bullpen.

58 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:02 pm

[56] Was it Dionnnner?

59 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:02 pm

hmmm...

60 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:02 pm

[54] I think I've seen it twice in my life. But I'm only on the 20th anniversary of my 30th birthday, so what do I know.

Ah, 4 out save.

61 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:02 pm

More like Josh 'Singleman', eh?

62 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:02 pm

A lefty that can't get a lefty out. How quaint.

63 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:02 pm

[54] I don't think I've ever seen that either. Ever.

64 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:03 pm

[58] i sure hope so! except, when it happened, he only had 3 N's in his name.

65 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:04 pm

rich on the hill could've done that.

[60] i wanted to say twice too, but that could be the cold medicine talking. makes me really loopy.

c'mon hamma!

66 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:05 pm

i do hope we keep the hamma. we should definitely sign him.

67 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:06 pm

HAMMERED.

Now I feel much better.

68 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:06 pm

Boo-yah!

69 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:06 pm

Uncle Chuck on the black. Not too shabby.

70 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:07 pm

nailed!

71 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:09 pm

[66] Yeah. I wonder how much he'll cost.
In principle I don't think we should pay big bucks for relief pitchers (Sub-Mo-ly ones, I mean). But I'd be happy if D-Rob were on the team for the next five years.

72 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:09 pm

Hey!

Chased it right the fuck out of there!

73 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:09 pm

Yay!!

74 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:09 pm

Headley!

75 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:10 pm

that was a...

HEAD SHOT!!!

76 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:10 pm

Wow! A triple!!!!

77 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:10 pm

Ellsbury is fun to watch.

78 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:11 pm

Now Jeter can double and Prado can single for the rare Consecutive Descending Cycle.

79 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:11 pm

that was a really nice swing by rbj. and great hustle!

fuck yeah, man. let's get this run back, too!

80 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:12 pm

[78] i love those.

but...can jeter really double?

81 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:13 pm

Breathing room.

82 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:13 pm

Excellent.
Maybe an unwise decision to come home, but success commands forgiveness.

What are they reviewing?

83 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:13 pm

Me!!

84 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:14 pm

those mutton chops are unfortunate.

nice running, rbj. but please don't be hurt!

85 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:14 pm

Close.

86 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:15 pm

Bullshit!

87 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:15 pm

Really? I'm surprised, I thought he was safe.

88 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:15 pm

he was safe. clearly. high throw by Valencia-witz, who i believe is a tribesmember. right, RI?

89 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:15 pm

Yeah, definitely blocking the plate without the ball. So, bad call.

Ah, they're reviewing that too!

90 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:16 pm

Oh God, a double challenge

91 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:16 pm

[88] Yes. His mother's name is 'Mindy'. So that settles it.

92 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:16 pm

FUCK!!!

no. bullshit.

challenge rue let! kinda silly...

93 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:16 pm

Out??

94 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:17 pm

Horseshit ab by Jeter in any case.

95 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:17 pm

this is a bunch of bollocks.

i hope jacoby's shin/foot/ankle is fine...

96 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:22 pm

dear david,

please give us a clean, quick, 1-2-3 inning.

thanks a bunch,
thelarmis j. younkin

97 monkeypants   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:23 pm

Catcher's foot on the plate before he received the ball...clearly should have been safe by the "new" rule, no? Meanwhile, Jays announcers spent the rest of the inning pontificating about how bad/confusing/unfair/senseless the "new" rule is. I for one enjoy no more smash into the cathcer plays.

98 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:25 pm

Good work, Cap.

That's two.

99 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:25 pm

Pradone

100 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:25 pm

[98] i'm way behind. just saw the first ball to reyes...

Show/Hide Comments 101-112
101 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:26 pm

[97] Right.
Everyone at YES is adamant. Clearly blocking the plate without the ball.

102 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:26 pm

Good work, Cap.

That's two.

103 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:26 pm

Grandpa's still got quick hands.

104 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:26 pm

i like how jete's brought the glove down super fast for the transfer. that was cool!

105 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:27 pm

Yay!

Nice win, Team!

106 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:27 pm

Great win.

107 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:27 pm

Thheeheheheheheheh Yankees, WIN!

108 rbj   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:27 pm

Three outs! Night all

109 thelarmis   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:28 pm

yay!!!

110 RIYank   ~  Aug 29, 2014 9:28 pm

There's some kind of echo in here.

111 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 29, 2014 10:21 pm

Good battle going on now between Weaver & Lester in Anaheim.

112 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 29, 2014 11:41 pm

Did you guys see Jorge Soler on the Cubs tonight?? Yikes...is there some kind of residual Big Stein Anti-Communist thing going on with the Yankees that they don't sign Cuban guys like this? Puig, Abreu, Soler, Chapman..what talent.
