Think Big Mike can be nice, twice?
He goes against Adam Wainwright tonight on the Game of the Week.
Never mind the Peeps:
Happy Easter and Let’s Go Yank-ees!
Let's do this!
Which Pineda will show up tonight?
Two quick outs bugaboo again
 That's a creepy subway car.
C'mon Big Mike, let's make some BBQ Birds today!
Cards radio guys claiming fan interference..
It's trajectory was out
Baseball gods make it right
He just saved that putz fan for costing the team a run.
Holy crud. Way to get off the schnied.
The Bird is Back!
 Do fans that reach over in the OF get ejected?
Ah, there's one of them tharplush peeps.
I think Bird is back
 I believe you mean 'Bird Lives'... :)
Dang, two walks and a double in one inning and no runs.
But, I am enjoying the Ornithology!
Oh fuck off, I am not posting comments too quickly.
Slow down RIYank!
From bird, with Fowler
 That's what she said.. (sorry, I'm stuck at the office Monday Am and feeling juvenile)
Ahhhhh. That was very helpful. 1-4-3, and it's an official game.
 You keep your hands off that juvenile, that's gonna get you in some big trouble.
 I think he means, "The Bird's the Word." Rivington's version.
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.
Damn, Hicks swinging the Sticks!
 Got an appointment this afternoon with Dr. Hugh Jass for some new meds, that should help.
To the sticks!
Big Pine and Big Hicksery?
This Wainwright guy sucks.
Man, I have got a massive crush on Jessica Mendoza. Gimmie more on-camera, please.
 she's good too.
 Yes, she's got it all.
Damn, Max. Look at his OBP, jeez.
Hey, who you callin an adult? There's a drummer among us, ya know!
Now, dolts is more like it ; )
 More than your crush on John Kruk?
 exceptions prove the point.
Thelarmis finding some rhythm.
Neck tattoo is not good at catching anymore.
This has not been one Yaddi's finest weekends.
Judge is overruled
Hm, not a strike.
Not a strike.
Ha! So nice to see you all here during a game thread : )
Perhaps I should text Cult to tell him to stop by...
 You been drinkin' some jazzy tea?
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.
It's TESH, you twits!
 You rang???
How tall was Winfield?
 Nah, I 'weeded' out that habit a while back.
 What's up thelarmis, I got some Mongo Santamaria on the headphones today.
Ha! It worked.
Hey, cult!!! : )
Allan Holdsworth died today. Sad...
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.
Pineda looking good. Excellent pitch count to boot.
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.
 6' 7".
Looks to be good Pineda. See how the seventh goes, then maybe the eighth.
Wasn't Tony Clark the same height as Judge?
Yeah, let's hope Big Pine continues to cruise.
How tall was Danny Ainge?
 Yeah, Fielder had to be way heavier. I always thought Winfield was 6'6"? Only guy ever drafted in three sports, right?
 gotta count the spikes?
I don't think that should be an out. He never had control of the ball...
I wouldn't have given him one. Because, Cardinals, who "play the right way"
Is that play not reviewable?
Safe! Girardi missed a challenge? Never...
 Yup. Which is why I don't care about salaries. I don't want to lose the best athletes to other sports.
Oh, fuck. What a catch!
Judgement, not reviewable
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."
Ok I need this game to speed up.
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.
 That micro second being off the bag on a steal is also a frustrating call. That's just not baseball.
 Went straight to MLB, doubt we'll ever see that again ...
Crap. I do not like Neck Tattoo.
Let Mike continue to pitch.
Yeah, I knew that right off the bat
 neck tattoo is only better than head tattoo ... seriously, people, WTF???
Nothing you can do
Don't get cute, Dellin
There ya go!
That walk to biscotti was ok, Beta had Adams beat from the first pitch.
Go see All Them Witches at The Earl in the ATL.
Ooh, The Earl is waaaay too smoky for me!
I want geico runs!
Another hit for Charlie Parker!
Bird on fire!
Bird up to .138 : )
Woo hoo, there ya go, alarmis!
Be mine! Romaine a very satisfactory BUC.
 Do it!
They're really good.
Hah love autocorrect!
I want more!
Little Ronnie, they call him Toe?
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?
Yeah, they call him Toe. I prefer RoTo : )
I really hope Chapman sat down...
So the Cardinals are horrid
Yeah chapman sat down.
9 xbh tonight!
Mitchell was warming fwiw
Whoa, I ran out for a couple slices and now it's 8-2? Bombers R Back!
Of course I want double digits, but I'll settle for 9.
Oh yeah, I saw Mitchell warming up.
If the Mormons allowed polygamy gay marriage, and Brett Cecil and Brett Gardner married George Brett, would they be Brett & Brett Brett?
This Espn crew isn't as insufferable as usual.
+ 7 run diff
Stop touching the fucking ball!
But Piscotty wasn't close and couldn't have caught it.
He wasn't even trying for that ball. Crap call. Though I guess only because I wanted double digits!
Not worth the effort to argue with a lead like this, but that was a mercy call. Biscotti never would have caught that.
[106[ Check this out, see if you like
Mitchell looking pathetic in a no pressure situation.
Veh iz Mir
One more out...
That was a strike, blue
7 in a row!!
Three! Yes Yankees!
Nice Yankees win. Bird gets the worm. Seven, magnificent!
Bring on the White Sox! That 1-4 start seems ages ago.
 I guess that makes us all RoTo-Rooters!
Confession: my nickname frosh year of college was Boato-Rooter.
 Jazz, where do you get "slices" in Tokyo. I only no one place and it's way out of my way.
RoTo. Rooter - nice, boat!
