Reunited (And it Feels So Good)

traffic light building Bags

Yanks and Sox for the first time this year. Three games in Boston and then they don’t see each other again until the second week of June in the Bronx (and they don’t play again after that until July 14th).

Should be fun.

Never mind the All-Stars:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Marlins rained out too. I guess I'll have to start following them too, if the deal goes through

2 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 6:13 pm

Let's try this again

3 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 6:20 pm

Crap, need to reset my router

4 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 6:26 pm

Last time sox did not have he who shall not be named was 2002. Holy shit! And there's Headley. Oi!

5 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 6:31 pm

E6!

6 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 6:32 pm

Oopsie!

7 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 6:32 pm

There goes The Judge! Hot damn!

8 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 6:32 pm

Judge celebrating birthday

9 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:02 pm

That's a catch, blue

10 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:06 pm

Sit the fuck down. He's out.

11 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:15 pm

Bird looks like bird shit.

12 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:26 pm

Phew

13 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:30 pm

I miss another tater from the Judge?
How's Severino looking? the Sox radio guys only are talking about My Little Pony and Machado still...

14 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:34 pm

[13] opposite field, into the pen. So nothing special. Sevvy had a hiccup in the fourth but was able to get out. Much better than last year

15 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:39 pm

Sigh

16 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:44 pm

[14] Nice. If Sanchez comes back healthy and hitting then the lineup is really going to look scary..

17 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:45 pm

Official game

18 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:53 pm

Boo. Give Judge pitches to hammer

19 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 7:55 pm

A hit for Bird! With an RBI.

20 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:02 pm

I just realized after watching YES that the game is on e$&$ also. That doesn't happen much. If ever.

21 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:03 pm

Atta kid, Luis!

22 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:03 pm

Man, Severino is looking reaaaalllllly good.

23 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:04 pm

That four letter network let Jason Stark go and is reducing Karl Ravech's on air time. MLBN.

24 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:04 pm

[20] Ugh, I can't watch YES. MLB.tv is blacked out because of the Firing All Employees network.

God, they are brutal. I am so freaking glad I can get YES for almost every game.

Oh, geez, I wonder if I can watch this on NESN... gonna check.

25 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:05 pm

I can! Much better!

26 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:10 pm

Yay Headley. Booming double.

27 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:13 pm

I'm surprised Porcello is allowed to go this long. I guess this is his last batter...

And he walks Holliday. Huh.

28 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:15 pm

[23] Really?? Always liked his stuff..can't imagine ever watching any of their tv programs anyways. Once tuned in to Colon Cowherd, lasted about 5mins before shutting off.

29 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:20 pm

[28] Yep.
They're bleeding money. They have to cut everybody who isn't profitable.
The network pretty much sucks already; you can imagine how awful it's going to be once this bloodbath is over.

30 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:22 pm

Hah, I forgot that Wordpress thinks the word "Spe-shul-ist" is advertising a men's health product if you spell it correctly. I was trying to make fun of the Sox' lefty speshulist, but it wouldn't post.

31 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:22 pm

[28] they've gone downhill, basically turning the NBA into a soap opera. Hope Jason move to MLBN

32 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:23 pm

Hey, anyone here ever been to Dodger Stadium? I got tix for a Sunday afternoon game in August against the Padres, near the right field fair pole.

33 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:23 pm

Man it's foggy

34 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:23 pm

Nope, not me. Sounds like fun! Will you be in LA for a while?

35 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:24 pm

[34] Yes, and with no car I'm expecting transport difficulty...

36 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:25 pm

Good job by Starlin so far, fouling off those 100 mph pitches.

37 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:26 pm

Only time I've been to California was a connecting flight at LAX.

38 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:26 pm

Curses. That would have been a back-breaker, any kind of hit, even a walk.
Oh well, good try by Starlin.

39 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:30 pm

Wow, he's really got the change-up under control. He looks so good!

40 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:33 pm

Also the slider! Wow. I'm really impressed.

41 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:34 pm

Clippard? Not Betances warming up? It is a save situation

42 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:35 pm

[41] I'm not aboard the Clippard yacht any longer..

43 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:35 pm

Hot damn

44 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:36 pm

Whew, that was cool. Dang.

This is a fun season. Even Torreyes is contributing to the fun.

45 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:37 pm

I heart Luis. What a start. Stay healthy, young man. Ronald's glove is bigger than him!

46 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:37 pm

Maybe Clippard would have come in if Joe had to yank Severino in the seventh? Otherwise I don't see why it wouldn't be a no-brainer to go to Betances.

47 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:39 pm

Impeached.

48 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:40 pm

I do not like Joe Kelly. Not sure why.

49 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:44 pm

Hm. Well, 22 pitches by Kelly, so that's something. The Sox don't have a deep bullpen. Oh, but this is only a two game series now so it doesn't really matter. So never mind.

50 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 8:47 pm

Dellin, Dellin, the strikeout machine!

51 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:06 pm

Foggy plus a too rested Chapman. Hmm

52 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:08 pm

Grrrr. I hate that.
Location, Aroldis.

53 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:09 pm

Sub-optimal.

54 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:10 pm

The 3 B outfield scares me..

55 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:11 pm

Hmm.

56 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:11 pm

Run roh

57 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:12 pm

Losing this game would be a gigantic fucking kick in the nuts.

58 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:13 pm

Okay, that's one.

59 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:14 pm

Hanley can turn on a big fastball...
In principle. But he's not gonna do it.

60 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:15 pm

Said it before but..MLB hitters are ridiculous, making solid contact on 100mph fastballs is insane.

61 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:16 pm

Jeebus farkking Chrystal.

62 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:19 pm

Ugh, not good. The walks. The double I can accept, but not the walks.

JBJ scares me a little, after that not worried.

63 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:19 pm

Ohferfuck's sake!

64 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:19 pm

JBJ better not go yard here....

65 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:20 pm

Yay!
Okay. One more. And weak batters ahead.

66 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:20 pm

Two down!

67 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:22 pm

Uh. IGNORE THE BASERUNNER YOU DOPE.
Come on, Aroldis, just do what you do, Rutledge is not a hitter.

68 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:22 pm

Don't be a hero, meat.

69 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:23 pm

Why is concerned with the runner, just get this guy AB!

70 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:24 pm

Heart rate rising.

71 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:24 pm

NESN guys are calling the off-speed pitch a slider. Is it? Or is it a change?

72 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:25 pm

Chapman is going to throw this game away.

73 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:25 pm

Whew!
Oh, man.
Yipes!

74 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:26 pm

Foul, phew

75 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:26 pm

30 pitches...yikes

76 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:26 pm

Yay! Ballgame over, Yankees WIN!

77 Bronx Boy in NC   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:26 pm

Thank you Aroldis Wetteland!

78 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:26 pm

Strikeout, yes, can breathe no

79 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:27 pm

Whew! A Win's A Win, good job, Bombers!

80 rbj   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:27 pm

Night all

81 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:27 pm

Holy Christ! Thank Mo.

82 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:28 pm

NESN extremely impressed with His Honor.

83 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:29 pm

Celtics are spitting the bit against a non-playoff-worthy Bulls team, in Boston. There will be much gnashing of teeth tomorrow.

84 RIYank   ~  Apr 26, 2017 9:31 pm

Hey, did you guys know who has the best run differential in MLB?
Hint: they wear pinstripes.

85 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 26, 2017 11:58 pm

Nice game. I gotta start waking up ealier. The weather has been way better in Tokyo, though.

[32] I've been there, but I was only 10 (Nixon adm.). Great memory though. Dodgers vs. Reds. My cool cousin got us tix (He can now get me tix to any Yankee game. Problem is getting to NYC.)

Anyway, Jazz, I have heard the crowds are pretty rough at Chavez these days. Like the old Bronx Bomber Yard. A lot of chest-puffing Neanderthals high on Ethyl. Stay cool and root for the home team.
