"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Green and Gold


You know, I watched about 95% of the games in 1998 but one that I missed was the comeback where Straw hit the grand slam. I might have even started watching it but I missed the comeback, one of their best of the season. I just remember waking up like it had been a happy dream, which is what that whole season was anyway.

Point is, it’s hard to stay up for games in Oakland. Least it’s always been for me. At least on a school night.

That said, I like that I have a choice and sometimes I’ll just hang on and watch a game until it’s over just because.

Never mind the peppermint tea:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

1998 didn't start off like a dream if I recall; it wasn't until George started threatening Torre's job that the Bombing began. I've always felt that was the team's "And Fuck You Too, Mr. Steinbrenner" season.

Hey, what's wrong with peppermint tea? >;)

I love the Oakland/LAA/Sea games. Means I have baseball to listen to until about 2 in the afternoon while here at AMCE, Inc.

1998...I was in Japanese school, checking my email once a week at a library and watching the MLB highlights on a nightly show, trying to understand the J announcers..wasn't until after the ASB I realized who good the team was.

13 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 19, 2016 11:12 pm

[12] Agreed..even if he's still stretching out his arm, 80 pitches is not too much?

14 thelarmis   ~  May 19, 2016 11:15 pm

yanks win!

Had already shut down the iPad before the game, only caught a couple of innings. Now, everyone makes mistakes. But Carlos, the team is underperforming, the offense is struggling. Now is not the time to not mentally be in the game.

[15] Joe was just trying to honor roger maris. It had to happen.

Alex - I love seeing Chapman pitch the 9th, you should fall asleep on the couch, and wake up when he comes in to pitch. I'm 2-2 with the win in Arizona and last night's win.

Singleton has a way of putting me to sleep, and he gets excited at the right times to wake me up. Beltran's 9th inning got Singleton to change his pitch at the right time.

If Singleton remains monotone, then the Yankees are losing and there's no reason to wake-up.

Ha. Good stuff on Kenny. He reminds me, especially when he laughs, like Dr. Hibbert from the Simpsons.
