Take that boo birds.
Yanks go boom, beat up the Rays, 7-2.
The O’s in town for a long weekend series.
Never mind the c-c-c-old.
Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Watching the Tigers game. It's snowing in Chicago.
Orioles afraid of Sir Didi
Tanaka looking good.
Nice catch Neil.
Hi rbj, thanks for holding down the fort. I was stuck on a very delayed morning commuter train. What suddenly happened to Tanaka?
 some missed locations I guess
Ok, still get on base, just throw a few more pitches.
Um, maybe get this pitcher out? Back to back HBP.
 Adam Jones happened. One mistake. Then the "usual" bullpen breakdown. This time the culprit was Chad Green He had been too good so far, I guess.
 Worried that there will be an over-reliance on the bullpen; noting that they're "really good" doesn't mean that they won't burn out with overuse. There should be a way to get 6-7 innings from your starters early on so you don't wear out a Chad Green or Tommy Kanhle or especially Betances and Chapman before you even get out of April. This is definitely not the season to lock guys into strict roles.
Problem is, do you really blame that on Boone thinking that Cashman and Co. are likely making the calls?
 Well we can't expect CC to go more than 5 or 6. Sevi and Tanaka should be able to go 7 or 8 when they are on. Gray is still a mystery. He throws too many pitches. Monty is young. It will be interesting to see how it breaks down going forward.
Manny will do that
Don't throw that pitch again.
Oh well at least it’s tied up
Oh ferfuck's sake. E1.
 or that one
Blah. Maybe CC can go a moonballless frame.
 Hard to get a starter to consistently pitch 7 innings when everyone seems to be on an 80-90 pitch count. I was just reading an article the other day about how nobody seems to remember the White Sox winning the World Series in 2005. I think even fewer remember them getting four straight complete games against the ‘stros in that series. Getting one much less multiple complete games in a month these days is like challenging the 56 game hitting streak.
So much for our vaunted bullpen.
Ruh roh, right hip soreness
Not good news on Sabathia, hopefully it's minor.
Good job Tommy. Now the bats need to get going
So Drury is down now?
I think that they should’ve brought in Professror Irwin Corey to explain that rule.
When a man is right, he's right.
Buck was right.
Also ... really dumb from Stanton.
This is not good.
I love lead off walks!
The bullpen has been such a tire fire so far ... not what I was expecting.
This is painful.
Gotta win this one. Yeesh.
Can we at least walk this shitty night off???
Hit one deep, Miguel.
ANOTHER FUCKING LEADOFF WALK ... GRRRRRRRRR.
Schoop there it is.
Heavy swings. Yikes.
Phew. Win this.
Whatcha waiting for, Brett?
Lame. Completely fucking lame.
Almost noon here, can we get a walk off soon?
Another tater for Ohtani!
Ohtani ia a tall drink of water.
Atta boy, Chase! Diditime.
Now ... get his ass IN!
Are you fucking kidding me?
Oh for FUCK'S sake!
Man this has been a weird and frustrating game.
  Showtime! Into the rock pile. Jay-sas, the guy is raking!
I do not like this.
This has disaster written all over.
Walk-off tater from Austin. Let's get this done.
AWFUL at bat from Gardner there.
Jesus Fucking Christ, Brett. Boooooooo!
And guess who’s leading off the bottom half of the inning...
Rob the homer, hit the homer. Let’s go, Judge!!!
Wow. It worked. I looked away and something good happened.
Smart fans out there.
Are they doing the judge’s chambers this season?
Drop the Mike, Stanton! (h/t Axisa)
Frick. Unproductive out.
Base hit, Gary
Fucking Hell. Dammit.
Feel bad for y'all in the EST ...
Except for Nosta ... man's a vampire!
Wonder who's going to rack up the miles on the Scranton Shuttle tonight ...
Sup, Cult?! It’s like noon here
Keeping my wife up to watch the game with me.
Dude ... that MUST be true love!
Motherfucking fucking fuck
Did Kay just say, "Long night's journey into day"?
When you're getting O'Neil riffs from the booth, you know it's been a long game.
Sanchez better not be injured. This goddamn teams falling apart at the seams.
Well ... FUCK
It's not what you want. I'm done.
 it’s not Holder’s fault. He sucks. It’s Boone’s “let’s just waste our entire pen by pitching everyone exactly one inning” that left him with no options.
That was a a 5 hour long kick in the nuts. Glad tomorrow is Saturday.
