Where the Wild Things Are

It was not easy, there were a lot of strikeouts—on both sides—but the Yanks were able to survive a close one in Cleveland last night, 2-1. Aroldis Chapman benefitted for a pair of nifty defensive plays in the 9th, and whew, the Yanks got a win.

Let’s hope they get another one today and escape Ohio with a split.

Never mind the nonsense:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Yay, Holliday to the DL

2 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 12:12 pm

Hey-ho, let's go for the split.

I'm sorry for jumping the gun in the last thread, Alex.

3 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 12:15 pm

[1] Yes, yes!
But, for some reason, that gives G.I. Joe license to play our best outfielder at DH today. Grrr.

4 rbj   ~  Aug 6, 2017 12:26 pm

Crap. At least it's only one run. But the Yankees have trouble scoring more than one these days

5 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 12:30 pm

I've been spoiled. I expected Ellsbury to catch that.

6 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 6, 2017 12:39 pm

Hey, I guess there will be a few strikeouts today.

7 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 12:56 pm

[6] Ha! Sevy looks scary good.

8 rbj   ~  Aug 6, 2017 12:59 pm

And few hits

9 rbj   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:28 pm

Sigh

10 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:30 pm

I don't know what the strike zone is anymore. And the Yankee hitters have all turned into suckers for the curveball down and away. grrrrrrr

11 rbj   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:36 pm

Fast moving game.

12 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:40 pm

Atta boy, Clint! Don't fuck it up, O!

13 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:44 pm

Yup. 2 more chances.

14 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:46 pm

yay?

15 rbj   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:46 pm

Yay, tied up!

16 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:49 pm

I repeat. What the Fuck
is the strike zone? Ugh.

17 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:52 pm

Nice at-bat for the Todd Father.

18 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:53 pm

REJOICE!!!!

19 rbj   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:53 pm

20 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:53 pm

Wow! Did the outfielder lose the ball?

21 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:53 pm

Woo-Hoo!

22 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:54 pm

[20] He lost the plot.

23 rbj   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:57 pm

Wow, a fifth run.

24 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:58 pm

Whoo-hoo! Ron-Ron!

25 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:58 pm

Hooya!

26 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:58 pm

[22] that seems more precise.

27 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:58 pm

When was the last time Romine had a hit?

28 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:59 pm

Also I hear a ridiculous amount of sirens during Cleveland games.

29 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 1:59 pm

Is the Mojo back? Take it home, gents. Gotta catch some zzzzz.

30 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:00 pm

G'night zilla.

31 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:01 pm

[27] Invention of the Caesar salad?

32 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:01 pm

[30] Night. Now I'm off.

33 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:06 pm

39 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:19 pm

C'mon Aaron, STAY ON THE BALL!

40 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:20 pm

You're honor! Finally in a relatively non pressure situation. And finally oppositefield.

41 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:20 pm

Uh ... yeah ... like THAT!

THAT'S THE TICKET!!!

(thanks for listening)

42 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:21 pm

Seriously, I'm behind the feed, it seems, I didn't know he'd hit that when I wrote it ...

43 seamus   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:21 pm

[42] yeah it's funny when so many of us are streaming. Our timing may vary...

44 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:54 pm

I want double digits.

45 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 6, 2017 2:57 pm
