"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Is it Warm in Here?

Nah, actually it was a chilly first week for the Yanks who lost games and got hurt feelings—along with hurt players.

Now, they head up to Fenway to play the Sox who’ve come out gangbusters, although they ran into a little trouble of their own when Xander Bogaerts had to go on the DL. Otherwise, they look sharp.

Tonight gives Dueling Aces—Sale vs. Severino. Should be a good one. Maybe Stanton can loosen up. Or maybe it’ll get worse. We’re pulling for the Big Guy and know he’ll be okay.

Never mind nuthin’:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

And away we go

Has anyone ever struck out on less than 3 pitches? Asking for a friend.

3 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:24 pm

There is an apocryphal tale of a rookie facing Walter Johnson. After two quick strikes, the hitter walked back. Ump told him he had another strike. Rookie remarked the ump could have it, it wasn’t going to do him any good.

Crud

5 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:30 pm

Not good

6 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:33 pm

Phew

7 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:48 pm

Ball 1 to Betts was a better pitch than the called 3rd strike. Wtf.

8 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:50 pm

Crap.

9 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:52 pm

This is just the game I needed to wash the bad taste of the weekend o’s series out of my mouth. Grrrrrrrrrr.......Fuck boston.

10 51cq24   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:52 pm

maybe i'm looking for it, but the sox sure seem to know what's coming on every pitch

11 SteveF   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:52 pm

I wonder how cold weather affects a slider relative to other types of breaking pitches...

12 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:54 pm

The vaunted bullpen will keep it close.

13 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:54 pm

Burned up half the mound visits

14 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 6:58 pm

We’re not winning tonight

15 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:06 pm

Cousin Oliver flashing the leather.

16 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:06 pm

C’mon, Stanton! Ferfuck’s sake!

17 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:07 pm

Damn. This game sucks already. Why is Romine catching? Gary just had 3 days off.

I gotta keep the faith. My whole day is wheeled around the game.

18 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:07 pm

Stanton’s timing is off

19 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:08 pm

He's gonna strike out.

20 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:08 pm

This is not going to end well.

21 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:09 pm

Turrible.

22 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:12 pm

At least Gary looks relaxed.

23 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:13 pm

Big boppers coming up meaningless. Sigh.

24 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:15 pm

More coffee. Grrrrr.

25 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:22 pm

That’s better

26 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:31 pm

And that is not

27 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:45 pm

Word.

28 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:45 pm

I picked a bad day to give up fentanyl. ;>)

29 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:45 pm

Judge overrules the shutout motion

30 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:46 pm

Sheet. My timing is off. Woo-Hoo!

31 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 7:59 pm

Another hit. Another LOB.

32 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:00 pm

Eat shit, blue.

33 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:04 pm

Weeeeeeeeee....pop ups.

34 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:15 pm

This week is draggin'. I can't believe it's only Wednesday (here).

35 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:18 pm

Christ on a candlestick!

36 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:19 pm

Fucking Bollocks. I wish it was Wednesday.

37 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:22 pm

Would I be considered a "fair weather" fan, if I turned the game off now?

38 seamus   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:23 pm

I really dislike how Boone handles pitchers so far. I just think he’s pulling them too early half the time and the other half leaving them in too long. It doesn’t feel to me like he has good instincts for it.

39 seamus   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:23 pm

[37] oh I turned it off. I’ll probably turn it back on lol

40 rbj   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:25 pm

[37] I’m going to check on the game, but Forged in Fire and Chopped are on, plus I’m coming off a stomach bug, so I’m out for the night.

Sevvy didn’t have it, Sale did. Tip your cap and wait for tomorrow.

41 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:28 pm

BTW, what are they testing Drury for? I thought migraines were migraines.

Anyone have any experience? Reasons to be Cheerful?

42 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:33 pm

This game sucks. Good thing hockey playoffs start tomorrow to distract me from the next debacle or three.

43 seamus   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:35 pm

[41] migraines can be symptoms of a number of things I think.

44 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:48 pm

[43] Gotcha.

FWIW, I had cluster headaches several years ago. Devastating pain. Three sequences over about 4 months, then they just disappeared and never came back [knocking wood]. This is after doc said they would be with me for life. They never came up with a cause.

45 Boatzilla   ~  Apr 10, 2018 8:58 pm

Stantonian! I'm a glass half full guy.

46 seamus   ~  Apr 10, 2018 9:23 pm

[43] I’m glad they went away for now at least.

47 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 10, 2018 9:48 pm

[15] Hah! Who is the Oliver lookalike?

Glad I missed this game...yuck.

48 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 11, 2018 11:40 am

[47] I knew there was someone out there in Banterland that knew that one! lol
Brock Holt the SS was rocking his position last night with some shaggy blond hair and glasses.
