There was more reason to smile on Wednesday when the Yanks came from behind to beat the Jays, 8-6. That man Judge did his thing again, collecting three hits, including a homer. And no, Stroman did not try to dust him off.

This weekend should be funski. Yanks out in Chicago for three games against the Cubbies at Wrigley. First up is a Friday afternoon matinee for all you goldbrickers out there.

Never mind Happy Hour:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

The game's this afternoon?! Glad ya told me. And a 2:20 start which means I won't miss the entire game. Maybe The Judge can do his Glenallen Hill rooftop homer impression. Go Yankees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wDrw76ieTs

2 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 1:19 pm

Two days of a steady rain here. Can't mow the grass. Sore throat keeping me home.

3 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 1:27 pm

How the hell did he catch that?

4 Mattpat11   ~  May 5, 2017 1:31 pm

Spending this rainy day watching my Yankees play in front of the worst fans in baseball.

5 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 1:46 pm

Dammit!

6 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 1:57 pm

Hey, rbj, I am in the Cleveland area. How do I watch the game on tv? I can't use my mlb.tv subscription because apparently mlb thinks I am in the Cubs broadcast region.

7 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 1:58 pm

Crap, Pineda is on base. Station to station, Mike.

8 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 2:00 pm

[6] I've got Extra innings so I've the Yankees feed. Also get MLBN.

9 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 2:04 pm

Hmph. And I guess you aren't in range of Chicago.
I guess I can't watch, too bad.
Although I'm not too disappointed to have just missed Sanchez GIDP.

10 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 2:04 pm

oh Gary. Lame.

11 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 2:06 pm

It's not on WGN, for some reason.

12 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:12 pm

[6] you could try the radio - that's what I'm listening to at work.

13 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 2:13 pm

Yeah, I can get John and Suzyn, that will have to do.

14 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 2:23 pm

I think I was in 7th grade for that 23-22 game. Heard about it in school, some one had a transistor radio

15 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 2:28 pm

Ha, ha, Zobrist

16 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:31 pm

I like this version of Pineda.

17 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:32 pm

[14] was that against the Phillies?

18 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 2:33 pm

[17] I think so.

19 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:34 pm

I have vague memories about that one.

BTW, my wife is a Cubs fan, so I'll be glad when this series if over.

20 Boatzilla   ~  May 5, 2017 2:45 pm

Maddon looks like he's ready to go skiing. Is it really that cold?

21 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 2:47 pm

Oy.

22 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 2:49 pm

Not enjoying this as much as usual...

23 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 2:50 pm

[20] they said wind chill is 32.

24 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 2:51 pm

Hot damn

25 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 2:51 pm

Whew.
Nice job, Mike.

26 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 2:51 pm

nice! phew.

27 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:52 pm

Nice pitching there. Hopefully Maddon over manages some situation and we score a couple. Getting into their pen is the real key.

28 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:53 pm

[23] I was there on April 15 and got a friggin' sunburn.

29 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:54 pm

Hendricks is at 83 pitches entering the inning so this might be it for him.

30 Boatzilla   ~  May 5, 2017 2:57 pm

[23] Oooh, that's cold for baseball. I guess I'm a hot head, but it's got to be low 20s for me to consider a ski cap. ;>)

31 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 2:59 pm

woo hoo - we're into the pen!

32 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 3:00 pm

judge is ridiculous.

33 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 3:01 pm

[30] i'm wearing one now and it's 70+ in pittsburgh today! I like it warm. Though cooler in my house just because it is...

34 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 3:02 pm

jesus what a mess that wind is.

35 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 3:03 pm

If that's a hit then Judge shouldn't be charged with an error.

36 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 3:04 pm

Shit

37 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 3:04 pm

Modammit! We can't score at all.

38 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 3:05 pm

I've been watching the whole game on MLB tv. Can't log in online due to security issues and don't like posting from my phone.

I can't believe we haven't fucking scored : /

39 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 3:05 pm

crap. wasn't the catcher blocking the basepath though? I'm not sure I know that rule well enough.

40 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 3:05 pm

Judge should also have an extra homer, ribbie, and run and not a damn triple.

41 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 3:06 pm

It's fine. We're into their shitty bullpen now. I watched the Cubs cough up a 4-0 first inning lead, and a 6-2 lead, to the Pirates with Arrieta on the hill because of that bullpen.

42 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 3:08 pm

Motherfucker.

43 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 3:08 pm

oy vey

44 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 3:13 pm

How does this ump have a major league job?

45 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 3:14 pm

Ha! Big Pine is so awkward running and on the bases. I hope this outing doesn't result in an injury...

46 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 3:25 pm

We're gonna get shutout, aren't we?

47 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 3:28 pm

[46] it feels like it. This feels like one of those days where it just seems like we can't execute consistently at the plate..

48 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 3:44 pm

Strop is kind of the Cubs' version of the Run Fairy (if anyone remembers him).

49 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 3:52 pm

fuck

50 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 3:52 pm

blegh

51 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 4:12 pm

Hit a home run, dammit!!

52 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 4:14 pm

What the fuck are you looking at, carter?! : /

53 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 4:15 pm

Carter does strike out. a lot.

54 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 4:17 pm

C'mon, Gritner!

55 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 4:21 pm

WAHOO!!!!

Brett is fired UP!!!

56 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 4:21 pm

Brett!!!!

57 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 5, 2017 4:22 pm

I saw that. Holy shit!

58 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 4:22 pm

Chappy for the save. Dellin was already warming up. Roles. Saves...

59 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 4:22 pm

HOLY COW!!!

60 Mattpat11   ~  May 5, 2017 4:24 pm

WOO HOO

61 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 4:30 pm

Love that Cubs bullpen.

62 Mattpat11   ~  May 5, 2017 4:31 pm

Oh Christ, what was that?

63 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 4:31 pm

What was that?

64 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 4:33 pm

What the hell? I step outside to bring the garbage can in and there's a Cub on second?

65 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 4:34 pm

One down

66 Mattpat11   ~  May 5, 2017 4:34 pm

Okay. Two more.

67 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 4:35 pm

Dammit, I went out with a friend for a drink and missed the good stuff!

68 Mattpat11   ~  May 5, 2017 4:35 pm

One more

69 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 4:36 pm

Two down

70 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 5, 2017 4:38 pm

Give em the gas face!

71 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 4:39 pm

Yahoo!
Wow.

I'll have to watch the Gardner inning later. Man.

72 rbj   ~  May 5, 2017 4:39 pm

Three down!

73 Mattpat11   ~  May 5, 2017 4:39 pm

YEAH

74 thelarmis   ~  May 5, 2017 4:40 pm

Hell YEAH!!

75 Evil Empire   ~  May 5, 2017 4:42 pm

Great win. This team is for real.

76 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 4:42 pm

The Yankees now have the best record in MLB.

77 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 4:43 pm

I didn't think we'd win that today. I'm still in shock. I'm not at all displeased.

78 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 4:47 pm

I think nationals are 19-9 and we're 18-9 right? Still pretty damned good!

79 RIYank   ~  May 5, 2017 4:49 pm

[78] Yeah. I was going by what John Sterling just said. Doh!

80 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 5, 2017 8:12 pm

Wow, what a win! This team is...for real? Love how fired up they all got. Let's sweep them Cubbies, my now least favorite team!

81 seamus   ~  May 5, 2017 9:06 pm

So, it looks likely that at the end of the night, Starlin Castro leads the AL in batting average. Pretty cool. Even if he slumps now...

82 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:17 pm

I guess no new game thread

83 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:19 pm

I accept that error

84 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:19 pm

And that double

85 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:23 pm

That one too

86 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:27 pm

That's Headley

87 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:29 pm

Awww

88 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:35 pm

No problem with Monty K'ing

89 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 6:47 pm

That Gardner homer never gets old

90 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:04 pm

Line drive in the box score

91 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:09 pm

Carter joins the party

92 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:17 pm

Gary's arm is fine

93 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:26 pm

Starlin go boom. Next up, double digits

94 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:46 pm

I don't like this walk and double

95 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:48 pm

Damn, shutout gone

96 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:49 pm

Sigh, Didi

97 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 7:54 pm

Finally

98 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 8:14 pm

Six good inning, now have him hit the showers

99 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 8:31 pm

Or not

100 rbj   ~  May 6, 2017 8:34 pm

Pull him now.
Thanks, Joe

Position player pitching!

I want a dozen...

No dozen...

Let's just keep the run diff @ 5.

Yay!! : )

109 seamus   ~  May 7, 2017 6:28 am

Those damned Yankees! What a fun season so far!!!

Cockrell and Thames seem to be doing a fantastic job. I've got to assume they are having some impact on this club's hitting which has been phenomenal.

110 RIYank   ~  May 7, 2017 10:39 am

Cap tip to rbj for keeping everything going yesterday.

111 seamus   ~  May 7, 2017 7:02 pm

Ok let's do this! It's been a while since I've been able to watch live.

112 rbj   ~  May 7, 2017 7:04 pm

Ugh, the network that fired Jayson Stark.

Hey Ho! Fun runs! Ks. Sevi! We in budiness.

I love this ESPN crew despite Boone's Marvin the Martian voice. More Jessica, in my life, please. (At least she could explain why Hell's Bells fucked up.)

127 Boatzilla   ~  May 7, 2017 7:35 pm

BTW, anyone know what Harvey did?

128 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 7, 2017 7:36 pm

Boat! I'm catching up on Twitter and seeing all these Mets&Dildos jokes...not sure want to know what that's about..

129 Boatzilla   ~  May 7, 2017 7:39 pm

[128] Yo Jazz! He put a dildo in/on another guy's locker. But that can't be the whole story.

132 rbj   ~  May 7, 2017 7:42 pm

Ah, so that's the real story. I read somewhere that Matt didn't show up for Saturday's game and didn't tell the team he had a migraine

133 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 7, 2017 7:43 pm

Oh, goodie. Maddox and his RV.. puke.

134 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 7, 2017 7:45 pm

[133] just unwatchable..their continual refusal to show and talk about game action is incredible

135 Boatzilla   ~  May 7, 2017 7:48 pm

[134] Confession: I'd rather watch Jessica in skinny jeans that this baseball game. I know...I have issues.

Btw, my Sawx fan friend is wondering if Schilling gets invited to Fenway this year for the 2007 WS anniversary..would be great to see him live on mic again

Well, fuck.

144 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2017 8:00 pm

Thank you, cult. Yes, he's the reason I'm in Atlanta. In fact, he basically set up my entire career and personal life. He's had a major hand in most aspects of my adult and professional life. We were very close. He called me his grandson and named me "thelarmis." It's been a really tough year, on the heels of Butch Trucks... : (

145 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2017 8:01 pm

[144] Sorry again. Has to be tough. However, if you're gonna go, mid-jam onstage is probably about as good as it gets ...

Wind is playing with Hicksy..

It was perfectly poetic, but still super sad and surreal.

We had texted the day before, on his actual birthday.

148 seamus   ~  May 7, 2017 8:03 pm

Thelarmis - sorry for your loss man. I saw some of your posts on him. Sounds like you had a great relationship with him.

149 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2017 8:03 pm

Well, I mean it's not as good as this:

But ... it's strong.

150 seamus   ~  May 7, 2017 8:14 pm

I'm bummed we didn't score more in the first. We seem to have lost our bats. Or Lester found his zone.

Thanks, seamus. Much appreciated, man. I need to find a specific picture to post. That'll be fun! Trick is finding the damn thing...

Yeah, you sent me sword links a coupla years ago. I'll be teaching Tues night...

165 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2017 8:44 pm

Yeah, that pickoff sucked.

166 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2017 8:47 pm

Ah, ok ... was probably a bit buzzed when I did, that's why I didn't remember!

:)

167 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2017 8:47 pm

Cult - my ears are really bad, so I go to very few shows. Only bands I truly love and I avoid opening acts.

168 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2017 8:47 pm

What about ... All Them Witches?

169 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2017 8:47 pm

Plus, I prefer to perform live music rather than seeing it! : )

170 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2017 8:48 pm

I'm just not a fan of those bands. Sorry! : )

171 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2017 8:49 pm

Gotta read my daughter to bed and make dinner. I'll be back in a bit...

Go Sevy! Go Yanks!

172 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 7, 2017 8:59 pm

Good evening. House money game, but why not? Doesn't it seem wrong that the Derek Jeter honoring game is on ESPN, and played Sunday night?

173 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2017 9:01 pm

Judgement Day!!!

174 rbj   ~  May 7, 2017 9:01 pm

The Judge has ruled. Jay was fooled

175 kenboyer made me cry   ~  May 7, 2017 9:03 pm

John Jay might have started judicial review, but Aaron Judge ruled supreme!

176 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2017 9:03 pm

If Judge ran hard out of the box, that might have been an ISTPHR

[171] What are you reading her? My dad read me Richard Scary books ad nauseam (to him), but I was able to read about the Mets in 1969, and wonder why the Yankees got no love when I was four. Enjoy the time

I can only assume Derek Jeter books?

That third strike to Contreras was plain filthy. Great outing tonight, from start to finish.

Hm, I would definitely pitch to Schwarber.

Pitching to Bryant???

264 RIYank   ~  May 7, 2017 10:12 pm

I meant to Bryant. I think this is the right move. If you put him on, then a walk ties the game...

Yeah. A little bobble and very wide throw. Like well up the 1st base line.

Joe missed ball 4. Gary singled on the next pitch.

2 on, 1 out. I feel like we need more...

Shreve is at 41 pitches.

Woo! So glad I went to sleep though. Mlb has a video of the 48 strikeouts in 48 seconds. It's mesmerizing even iff the announcer clips are all about Lester.

Dayum. Went to bed after the ninth, thinking the Yankees were bound to lose. But a win!

382 seamus   ~  May 8, 2017 10:14 am

Also, best record in baseball again. For at least a few hours...

383 RIYank   ~  May 8, 2017 11:08 am

Yeah, I went to sleep and missed what amounted to a CG shutout by the bullpen, and a 1-0 free baseball game!

384 thelarmis   ~  May 8, 2017 12:49 pm

I saw the whole damn thing!

I had recorded it and was watching it a few hours after it should have ended. I only set it for 4.5 hours and was disappointed that the recording ended with the game still in doubt.

When I turned on ESPN to watch the highlights and find out the final, it was the 16th inning. So I got to watch the end live. I'm on the west coast and that was even late for me.

What a game!

This was the first time that I saw an intentional walk all year, and I didn't know that they changed the rule?

That was a real kick in the teeth for the Cubs. They got swept, and the last game was like 2 games and they had to stretch out their pen that was already thin. Ouch!

The Yanks pen aside from Chapman was amazing. There is lot more pressure on the visiting team in an extra inning game and they just dealt.

While I don't know if this team will go all the way, (way too soon to start making that prediction) what a fun team to watch. I would honestly rather see a team like this play well and fall short than to see a team of hired guns win it all. I hope that the young guns keep up their hard work, and create a dynasty.

Too bad that Severino didn't get the w. He had a heck of a game.
