4 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:31 pm

[0] That's a creepy subway car.

C'mon Big Mike, let's make some BBQ Birds today!

5 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:43 pm

7 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:45 pm

Cards radio guys claiming fan interference..

8 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:46 pm

Bullshit.

9 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:47 pm

10 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:47 pm

It's trajectory was out

11 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:48 pm

Baseball gods make it right

12 Alex Belth   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:48 pm

BIRD!

He just saved that putz fan for costing the team a run.

Holy crud. Way to get off the schnied.

13 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:48 pm

BIrd!!! Finally!

14 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 7:49 pm

The Bird is Back!

[12] Do fans that reach over in the OF get ejected?

15 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:15 pm

Ah, there's one of them tharplush peeps.

16 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:25 pm

I think Bird is back

17 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:28 pm

[16] I believe you mean 'Bird Lives'... :)

18 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:29 pm

Dang, two walks and a double in one inning and no runs.

19 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:30 pm

But, I am enjoying the Ornithology!
Oh fuck off, I am not posting comments too quickly.

20 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:32 pm

Slow down RIYank!

21 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:36 pm

From bird, with Fowler

22 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:37 pm

Big Pine!!

23 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:37 pm

[20] That's what she said.. (sorry, I'm stuck at the office Monday Am and feeling juvenile)

24 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:37 pm

Ahhhhh. That was very helpful. 1-4-3, and it's an official game.

25 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:38 pm

[23] You keep your hands off that juvenile, that's gonna get you in some big trouble.

26 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:40 pm

[17] I think he means, "The Bird's the Word." Rivington's version.

27 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:40 pm

Hello erudite Yankees fans! Bird bombs the Boids! It's turned out to be a fun city season so far. Just think, if the team won those two games in Baltimore they were leading late.
Eff the Mets.
I've missed yous adults.

28 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:40 pm

Official game

29 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:40 pm

Damn, Hicks swinging the Sticks!

30 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:40 pm

Hicksy!

31 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:41 pm

[25] Got an appointment this afternoon with Dr. Hugh Jass for some new meds, that should help.

Hicksy!

32 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:42 pm

To the sticks!

33 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:42 pm

Big Pine and Big Hicksery?

34 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:43 pm

This Wainwright guy sucks.

35 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:46 pm

Man, I have got a massive crush on Jessica Mendoza. Gimmie more on-camera, please.

36 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:47 pm

[35] she's good too.

37 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:49 pm

[36] Yes, she's got it all.

38 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:49 pm

Damn, Max. Look at his OBP, jeez.

39 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:50 pm

Hey, who you callin an adult? There's a drummer among us, ya know!

Now, dolts is more like it ; )

40 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:51 pm

[35] More than your crush on John Kruk?

41 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:51 pm

[39] exceptions prove the point.

42 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:51 pm

Thelarmis finding some rhythm.

43 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:53 pm

Neck tattoo is not good at catching anymore.

44 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:53 pm

This has not been one Yaddi's finest weekends.

45 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:55 pm

Judge is overruled

46 RIYank   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:55 pm

Hm, not a strike.

47 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:55 pm

Not a strike.

48 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:56 pm

Ha! So nice to see you all here during a game thread : )

Perhaps I should text Cult to tell him to stop by...

49 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:57 pm

[40] You been drinkin' some jazzy tea?

50 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:57 pm

Judge is so tall that his strike zone is higher than anyone's. I believe he is getting called strikes that should be low in his case.

51 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:58 pm

It's TESH, you twits!

52 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 16, 2017 8:58 pm

[48] You rang???

:-)

53 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:00 pm

How tall was Winfield?

54 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:01 pm

[49] Nah, I 'weeded' out that habit a while back.

[48] What's up thelarmis, I got some Mongo Santamaria on the headphones today.

55 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:01 pm

Ha! It worked.

Hey, cult!!! : )

56 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:01 pm

Hey, Nostra!

57 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:02 pm

Hey, Jazz!

Allan Holdsworth died today. Sad...

58 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:03 pm

Winfield not 6' 8". They said earlier on the telly cast, that Judge is the tallest and heaviest position player ever. I find the weight part difficult to believe thinking of Prince Fielder.

59 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:03 pm

Pineda looking good. Excellent pitch count to boot.

60 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:04 pm

I thought that stat was weird but I think they were trying to say he is tied for tallest but heaviest of the tallest? It was an odd stat.

61 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:04 pm

[53] 6' 7".

62 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:05 pm

Looks to be good Pineda. See how the seventh goes, then maybe the eighth.

63 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:05 pm

Wasn't Tony Clark the same height as Judge?

64 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:06 pm

Yeah, let's hope Big Pine continues to cruise.

65 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:07 pm

How tall was Danny Ainge?

66 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:07 pm

[58] Yeah, Fielder had to be way heavier. I always thought Winfield was 6'6"? Only guy ever drafted in three sports, right?

67 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:07 pm

[61] gotta count the spikes?

68 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:09 pm

I don't think that should be an out. He never had control of the ball...

69 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:10 pm

I wouldn't have given him one. Because, Cardinals, who "play the right way"

70 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:10 pm

Is that play not reviewable?

71 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:10 pm

Safe! Girardi missed a challenge? Never...

72 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:11 pm

[66] Yup. Which is why I don't care about salaries. I don't want to lose the best athletes to other sports.

73 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:12 pm

Oh, fuck. What a catch!

74 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:12 pm

Judgement, not reviewable

75 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:13 pm

Have you notice how NFL logic is now being applied to baseball. "Did he have control." Next they'll be saying, "The ground can't make you fumble the basball," or "The hand has to pass the plane of the plate."

76 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:15 pm

Ok I need this game to speed up.

77 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:15 pm

Oh wow, quick Google search shows that Cardinal fans REALLY do not like Mike Matheny..personality wise he makes JoeyJoeJoe look like the life of the party.

78 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:16 pm

[75] That micro second being off the bag on a steal is also a frustrating call. That's just not baseball.

79 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:16 pm

[66] Went straight to MLB, doubt we'll ever see that again ...

80 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:16 pm

Crap. I do not like Neck Tattoo.

Let Mike continue to pitch.

81 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:17 pm

Yeah, I knew that right off the bat

82 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:22 pm

Nice!

83 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:23 pm

Good Pineda!

84 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:32 pm

[80] neck tattoo is only better than head tattoo ... seriously, people, WTF???

85 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:32 pm

Nothing you can do

86 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:35 pm

Sloppy..

87 rbj   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:43 pm

Don't get cute, Dellin

88 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:44 pm

Damnit, Dellin

89 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:45 pm

There ya go!

Dancin' Betances

91 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:49 pm

That walk to biscotti was ok, Beta had Adams beat from the first pitch.

92 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:53 pm

Hey, Nostra!

6/17

Go see All Them Witches at The Earl in the ATL.

93 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:55 pm

Ooh, The Earl is waaaay too smoky for me!

94 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:56 pm

I want geico runs!

95 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:57 pm

Another hit for Charlie Parker!

96 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:58 pm

Bird on fire!

97 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:59 pm

Lettuce!!

98 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 9:59 pm

Bird up to .138 : )

Little Ronnie, they call him Toe?

106 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:03 pm

I'll have to see what's up on that date in a coupla months. Thanks for the heads up!

rbj - what, or who, is an alarmis?

107 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:04 pm

Yeah, they call him Toe. I prefer RoTo : )

108 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:05 pm

I really hope Chapman sat down...

109 Mattpat11   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:06 pm

So the Cardinals are horrid

110 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:06 pm

Yeah chapman sat down.

Thanks, seamus!

113 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:07 pm

Mitchell was warming fwiw

114 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:07 pm

Whoa, I ran out for a couple slices and now it's 8-2? Bombers R Back!

115 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:07 pm

Of course I want double digits, but I'll settle for 9.

116 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:08 pm

Oh yeah, I saw Mitchell warming up.

117 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:08 pm

If the Mormons allowed polygamy gay marriage, and Brett Cecil and Brett Gardner married George Brett, would they be Brett & Brett Brett?

118 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:08 pm

This Espn crew isn't as insufferable as usual.

119 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:09 pm

Nine!!!

+ 7 run diff

120 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:11 pm

Stop touching the fucking ball!

But Piscotty wasn't close and couldn't have caught it.

121 thelarmis   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:12 pm

Bollocks!

122 seamus   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:14 pm

He wasn't even trying for that ball. Crap call. Though I guess only because I wanted double digits!

123 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 16, 2017 10:14 pm

Not worth the effort to argue with a lead like this, but that was a mercy call. Biscotti never would have caught that.

Bring on the White Sox! That 1-4 start seems ages ago.

139 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 17, 2017 2:04 am

[107] I guess that makes us all RoTo-Rooters!
Confession: my nickname frosh year of college was Boato-Rooter.

[138] Jazz, where do you get "slices" in Tokyo. I only no one place and it's way out of my way.

140 thelarmis   ~  Apr 17, 2017 11:45 am
