In Case You’re Up…

vggdsljum6sqvyxj6fmkThe New Jack Yanks are doing a little West Coast swing tonight starting at 10pm EST with Los Angeles as the first stop and Seattle the last.  If you’re up late at night, need something to preoccupy your mind and if you can stand them, maybe you should consider the new A-Team…

Wait, is 10pm on a Friday night considered late? ; )

2 rbj   ~  Aug 19, 2016 6:58 pm

[1] once you hit 50 it is and you have errands to run in the morning.

3 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 19, 2016 6:59 pm

For members of the AK club, it's late. I'll explain what AK is to those who don't know.

4 rbj   ~  Aug 19, 2016 7:32 pm

AK club?

5 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 19, 2016 8:03 pm

It's shorthand Yiddish for "Alta kacka" meaning "old guy" (or gal)

6 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 19, 2016 8:05 pm

In other words, you remember when Yogi caught and when the infield was Boyer Kubeck Richardson and Skowron

Any movie that manages to combine late-era Pacino AND Williams and gets measured,restrained performances from both?


*Really* good.

8 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 19, 2016 9:29 pm

You around, Nostra?

9 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 19, 2016 10:01 pm

[8] Nope, but I am. 久しぶり Cult.

By the way, it is absolutely essential that Girardi not return next year. I heard him refer to the Sheriff as 'Sanchy' in an interview. 'Sanchy'! If they sign Bryce Harper will he be 'Harpy'? If Rusty Kuntz joins the staff will he be 'Kuntzy'? This must not be allowed!

10 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 19, 2016 10:05 pm

Girardi has the laziest nicknames in the world.

It is known.

11 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 19, 2016 10:06 pm

Good to "see" you, OK!

12 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 19, 2016 10:07 pm

How are things?

I haven't been around much this season, but with the youth movement and the game on local TV, I wanted to tune in tonight.

Picking up sweet tickets to Sunday's game tomorrow morning!

13 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 19, 2016 10:10 pm

[12] I'm good! I've not been here regularly either this year but the Baby Bombers got me back. Enjoy the game tomorrow!

14 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 19, 2016 10:30 pm

Weaver throwing fat pitches like I do to my son for batting practice..

15 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 19, 2016 11:56 pm

Tananka pitching a gem on my birthday. Sanchez continues to crush. Woke up to a cool hand-made card from my daughter.

What could be better? Until Binder Joe [gasp]...but it worked out.

I'm happy.

16 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2016 12:00 am

Oh, god please. You didn't. Kirby Yates.

17 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2016 12:16 am

rbj - I'm not that far off and have to get up in the mornings to get my daughter to school, but midnight is noon to me and I work nights!

Gary - my mom always spoke Yiddish in the house with my grandparents so my brother and I couldn't understand what they were talking about. As a result, I only know some choice words and sayings, and not the dying language...

Cult and I texted throughout the second half of the game and it was awesome! : )

18 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2016 12:25 am

Happy Birthday, Boat!!!

Nothing better than the handmade cards from the daughter! My most cherished gifts : )

I'm shocked the bullpen preserved the shutout!

Can't wait to watch the highlights of Sanchize stealing a base!

19 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2016 12:41 am

Whew. Can Tanaka get 13 wins? Hope so.

20 Chyll Will   ~  Aug 20, 2016 1:12 am

Torreyes hits his first homer ever in the bigs. Listening to Suzyn's postgame, first Didi picks him up and delivers him to the interview, then comes back and pours a bucket of bubble gum on his head. Moments later, Dellin pours water on his head. It's not the first time he's been picked up and carried around like a kid's teddy bear. Yet, even though I only caught the tail end of the game and listened to the postgame interviews and recap, I feel good for this kid, and I feel something that has been missing from this club for at least the past two seasons, maybe more. Suddenly the losing isn't such a bad thing, because the young guys seem like they're picking up all this big league stuff really quickly. Hell, they may be a .500 team, but right now they aren't a mediocre .500 team.

21 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2016 2:14 am

I hope to see those Torre/Reyes highlights. I did see the home run, and it was *crushed*! I love that Didi picks him up! Kinda like Jeter rubbing Zimmer's head : )

22 RIYank   ~  Aug 20, 2016 6:30 am

Happy belated birthday, Boatzilla!

I did catch a little of the end of the game -- not up late, but waking up early, in England. So I missed some homers but did get to see Tanaka and then the handoff to the bullpen.

Boy, I really like Gary Sanchez. I'm slightly resentful that we were deprived of a few months of him. Why? Austin Romine? Really?

23 thelarmis   ~  Aug 20, 2016 10:23 am

Top o' the mornin' to ya, matey!

We're in a yurt at a Georgia state park for me wife's early birthday present.

Yeah, Gary is awesome. Can't wait to see his stolen base!

24 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 20, 2016 11:55 am

Thanks for the birthday wishes guys. I feel the love.

So the currect Sterling line up is:
Hhe Ellsburys it. Everything's Jake with Jackoby.
Torreyes is teriffic. Bonny Ronny.
Yes in DiDi, Gregorious makes Yankee fans euphorios.
McCan-Can, yes McCan, can!
Gary is scary?? (is that all?)
What's judge?
What's Austin?


25 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 20, 2016 3:14 pm

Boat. Judge should be "here comes the judge" or "judgement has been rendered."

26 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 20, 2016 3:18 pm

And Hicks? Pick up sticks? Aaron Abomb? Aaron makes like Henry?
