"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Let’s Play 2 for the Captain

IMG_4625 They called the game early yesterday and it was a good thing. It rained all day and into the night. Friday night wasn’t so much fun. Lance McCullers was nasty and the Astros cruised, 5-1.

Today gives Mother’s Day but also Derek Jeter Retirement Day at at the Stadium. And a day-night-double-header, to boot. Since it is Jeter’s Day—and who else but Jeter could get away with having his day on Mother’s Day?—of course the sun is shining, Simpsons clouds in the sky, a beautiful, crisp spring day. The green is full on, trees in bloom everywhere, just lovely.

I don’t care much for these kinds of ceremonies but if anyone was ever deserving it’s DJ. Meanwhile, let’s hope the Yanks celebrate him properly with 2 wins today.

Never mind the pink:

Let’s Go Yankees!

14 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:05 pm

Oopsie!

15 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:12 pm

Tough error

16 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:25 pm

Why take Green out after only 48 pitches? : /

17 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:26 pm

Modammit

18 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:29 pm

Moderation. Word press sucks!

Green was cruising and is stretched out. We have another game to play tonight. Zero reason to remove him from the game. : /

19 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:31 pm

Wow. Ugly as fuck. We deserve to lose...

20 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:32 pm

Fuck

21 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:48 pm

Holliday comes through, almost tied up again

22 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:52 pm

Starlin, redux! retied

23 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:53 pm

Gogo Castro!

24 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:54 pm

Let's go Didi!

25 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:54 pm

This is why I hate the automatic IBB, make them have to throw four pitches. You never know what can happen

26 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:56 pm

Headley came through!

27 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:57 pm

HEADLEY!!!

28 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:57 pm

Let's get double digits for the Captain!!

29 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 3:58 pm

[28] There ya go

30 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 3:59 pm

31 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 4:17 pm

Nice job on the thread rbj!

Just caught up to live video. Was celebrating Mother's Day. Anyhow great to see the bats come alive!

32 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 4:27 pm

Nice win, now lets win two today

33 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 4:27 pm

Awesome win after that brutal start from Sevvy. Re2pect!

34 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 5:41 pm

Ceremony starting

35 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 6:24 pm

I absolutely fuckiing LOVE my Captain. That was pretty great! Watched with my family :)

Congrats, Derek!!!

36 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 6:32 pm

Yeah, very nice, but Monument Park blazers?

Interesting they had Aaron Judge escort Zim's widow out onto the field. Next face of the franchise?

37 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 6:44 pm

Oh, no.

38 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 6:44 pm

Boo!

39 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 6:49 pm

Ugh, have they secretly replaced Tanaka withSevvy?

40 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 6:52 pm

Gift K

41 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 6:53 pm

Mo fucker

42 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 6:54 pm

Fuckity fuck fuck

43 thelarmis   ~  May 14, 2017 6:55 pm

I hope he's not injured...

44 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 6:55 pm

Come on offense

45 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 6:58 pm

What happened to Tanaka? Just tuning in.

46 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 7:04 pm

Two solos and a granny. Even one out was loud

47 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 7:04 pm

Thanks. He seems so off this year.

48 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 7:06 pm

I'm wondering if it's his elbow

49 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 7:24 pm

I'm really surprised he lasted that long.

50 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 7:35 pm

I'm predicting a DL stint

51 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 7:35 pm

Ugh this game kind of sucks so far

52 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 7:35 pm

Cy Morton

53 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 7:45 pm

A nonstrikeout out

54 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 8:00 pm

CI? Nice of ESPN to finally notice

55 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 8:02 pm

I'd turn it off if I had a job to go to in the morning

56 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 8:06 pm

Yeah no work tomorrow. Getting a long look at giovanny in any case.

57 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 8:12 pm

Is it me or has Houston had huge strike zones all weekend.

58 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 8:15 pm

[57] yup

59 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 8:25 pm

Wide zone for both exam. I guess blue has a hot date tonight

60 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 8:28 pm

Um teams

61 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 8:38 pm

Not shut out!

62 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 8:39 pm

Something. More of that please.

63 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 8:41 pm

Booyah!

64 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 8:42 pm

Boom! Finally some hits!

65 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 8:45 pm

Replay looked safe.

66 rbj   ~  May 14, 2017 9:12 pm

Did a lot of yard work this weekend, night all

67 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 9:40 pm

G'night rbj

68 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 10:07 pm

This ump is terrible. He's not entirely inconsistent but his strike zone is absurd.

69 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 10:20 pm

Padding stats...

70 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 10:26 pm

bwahaha

71 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 10:28 pm

No matter the outcome. It's insane we have the tying run at the plate.

72 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 10:30 pm

Oh well. Amazing we even had a shot there...

73 seamus   ~  May 14, 2017 10:34 pm

And note after Tanaka left in the second inning we didn't allow another earned run. Though one was because of Sanchez who was brutal all night with dropping balls. I worry he has a minor injury and may need to sit a couple of days.

74 Boatzilla   ~  May 15, 2017 7:37 am

Man, the whole weekend was a giant cluster fuck for the Yankees.

Chapman's out. Tanaka is in doubt.

Kansas City here we come.

75 seamus   ~  May 15, 2017 11:39 am

Definitely a tough weekend but we're still in first place, the kids are still fun to watch, etc... Hard to be too disappointed when we are still far above expectations.
