"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

But You Can Never Leave

yellow bike bags

Close, but no soup for the Yanks last night in K.C. though they didn’t surrender without a fight. Plus, they won the series and we’ll take that every damn time.

Off to the sterile—and, for the Yankees, none too friendly—confines of Tropicana Field in Tampa this weekend.

Joe Girardi is off to attend his daughter’s high school graduation today.

Never mind the stickiness:

Let’s Go Yank—ees!

Dammit, tied up

3 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 6:37 pm

Sevvy not sharp tonight

4 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 6:51 pm

Much better

5 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 6:56 pm

Yay, untied!

6 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 7:16 pm

Phew

7 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 7:48 pm

Damn, only one run through 5 when he has Ben in trouble most of the night.

8 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:06 pm

Good, pulling a Luis after a stressful five was the right decision

9 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:23 pm

Not liking this

10 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:24 pm

Nope, not at all

11 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:29 pm

Yup

12 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:37 pm

Come on blue

13 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:38 pm

Aw fuck

14 thelarmis   ~  May 19, 2017 8:39 pm

Fuck you, blue!!! That was right down fucking broadway.

15 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 19, 2017 8:39 pm

That was strike 3 all fucking day. Jesus fucking Christ!

16 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:51 pm

Why the hell were you swinging, me?

17 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 8:56 pm

Holliday! Cue Madonna song

18 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 19, 2017 8:58 pm

Holy shit. I leave the room for 5 minutes and it's tied.

19 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 9:02 pm

That's a fucking strike? Go fuck yourself, blue!

20 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 9:16 pm

Modammit

21 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 9:20 pm

Rally time

22 51cq24   ~  May 19, 2017 9:27 pm

what the fuck?

23 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 9:27 pm

Oh, now that's a strike.

24 rbj   ~  May 19, 2017 9:28 pm

I blame Blue

25 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 19, 2017 9:43 pm

Yup.

26 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 3:17 pm

Let's go Tanaka!

27 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 3:24 pm

Sigh

28 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 3:29 pm

Get that run back

29 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 3:33 pm

Thank you, Judge!

30 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 3:44 pm

Boo, Didi.

31 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 3:51 pm

And it comes back to bite us in the ass.

32 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 3:54 pm

Gary nails him.

33 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 4:10 pm

oy

34 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 4:21 pm

More shitty umping behind the plate

35 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 4:27 pm

That's Headley! retied.

36 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 4:34 pm

Fer fucks sake.

37 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 4:37 pm

Time to DL Tanaka

38 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 4:52 pm

Finally. Game not over yet.

39 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:01 pm

Gary helping the Yankees claw back.

40 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:11 pm

Damn

41 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:21 pm

And given right back

42 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:31 pm

Go fuck yourself blue, that was a strike.

43 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:33 pm

Blech, fielding sucks today. Tough play though.

44 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:34 pm

The Joe Girardi show!

45 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:40 pm

Very petty, ump.

46 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:46 pm

Boo, how dare you hit Judge

47 Boatzilla   ~  May 20, 2017 5:51 pm

So Tanaka pissed in the punch again? WTF!

With everything going so surprisingly well this year, he was the last guy you'd expect to have some inexplicable issue. Weird.

48 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 5:57 pm

You can't predict baseball.

49 Boatzilla   ~  May 20, 2017 6:00 pm

I just read that he took the unusual step of a pre-start bullpen session yesterday and said, "Based on my experience and considering various factors, I'm able to get some answers." That's even more vague in Japanese.

50 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 6:16 pm

I think Tanaka is hurting. MRI that elbow

51 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 6:21 pm

What the hell is the strike zone tonight?

52 Boatzilla   ~  May 20, 2017 6:52 pm

This game is a stinker.

53 rbj   ~  May 20, 2017 7:08 pm

What a shitty game. Shitty pitching, shitty defense, shitty waste of Judge and Gary home runs, shitty umping, all in a shitty stadium

54 Boatzilla   ~  May 20, 2017 7:17 pm

[53] Shitty weather outside, too. And a shit thread, while you're at at. A big shit sammie. At least it's a beautiful Sunday morning in Tokyo. I'm going out. A lunchtime kebab has my name on it.

55 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 12:09 pm

OK, let's try this again.

56 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 12:15 pm

Oopsie!

57 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 12:25 pm

Of course we don't score.

58 Mattpat11   ~  May 21, 2017 12:26 pm

Well that was feeble

59 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 12:36 pm

Jeez.

60 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 12:50 pm

Yay, tied up

61 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 12:54 pm

Woot!

62 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 12:58 pm

CC actually fielding!

63 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 1:22 pm

Nice, CC

64 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 1:32 pm

Archer striking out everyone.

65 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 1:33 pm

Froze him. That's 10 K's for the bow and arrow.

66 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 1:39 pm

Very nice, CC!!

67 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 1:43 pm

A walk!

68 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 1:44 pm

Ooh, ball 4 for Grtiner. I can't believe that wasn't strike 3. Shoulda been...

69 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 1:45 pm

And immediately a DP. : /

70 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 1:50 pm

Now that is funny

71 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 1:53 pm

Crap

72 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 1:54 pm

Crap. 1-run game...

73 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 1:57 pm

Fuck. I worry about Gary behind the dish. Lotsa ouches...

74 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 2:05 pm

Had to labor that inning, but we're still ahead and CC should be able to begin the next frame.

75 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 2:10 pm

Even dozen for Archer

76 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 2:11 pm

That was below Judge's knees. Should not have been punched out.

77 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 2:20 pm

Hot damn, Judge overrules that double

78 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 2:21 pm

WOW!! What a catch by Judge!

79 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 2:21 pm

Nice, rbj!

80 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 2:28 pm

Thanks

81 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 2:37 pm

Blergh

82 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 2:38 pm

Dammit. Wasted opportunity.

83 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 2:43 pm

Hate the leadoff walk.

84 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 2:57 pm

phew!

85 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 2:58 pm

Whew. LoMo didn't get the best of us this time after a double digit pitch at-bat

86 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 3:14 pm

Dellin in for the 4-out save

87 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 3:23 pm

Another nice hit for Didi! 4-4

Oreo's lost today

88 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 3:24 pm

Ha, oopsie!

89 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 3:25 pm

Error on a sure double play!

Let's get some Geico runs, fellas!

90 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 3:25 pm

Aw man, nearly a wild pitch with advancement.

91 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 3:29 pm

Come on, Gary

92 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 3:30 pm

Dammit, Gary.

93 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 3:34 pm

One down

94 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 3:35 pm

Two down

95 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 3:37 pm

Three down!

96 thelarmis   ~  May 21, 2017 3:38 pm

Beautiful job, Dellin!

First place!

97 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 21, 2017 3:39 pm

nice win. more fun than my softball team. Won the opener 25-24 after being down 14-0, then lost the second 17-16 after being +5.

98 rbj   ~  May 21, 2017 3:42 pm

[97] You have Tanaka pitching for your softball team?

99 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 22, 2017 10:07 am

[98] wish we did! our pitcher couldn't find his own ass with 2 hands.
