"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Don’t Cha Know?

Last weekend had letdown written all over it. And when the Yanks lost a close one on Friday night, you had to wonder. But they collected themselves, won both games over the weekend to take the series and head out of town on a good note.

Tonight they start a two-game series in the nation’s capital and then they are in K.C. and Texas where the bbq is grand.

Oh, and our old pal Robbie Cano is in the news today for the wrong reason. Oy and veh.

Never mind the rain clouds:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Say it ain't so, Robbie Cano.

I'm not so much surprised as I am disappointed.

2 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 4:30 pm

Yeah, very disappointed, The Ripper was one of my favorite Yankees.

3 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:09 pm

Hicks leadoff?

4 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:10 pm

Gio throws tons of pitches

5 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:10 pm

Against LHP, yes.

Gritner has hit LHP for a couple of years now.

6 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:10 pm

That's hasn't

7 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:11 pm

Nats announcers need to learn how to pronounce Yankee names.

8 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:12 pm

Gary smoked that

9 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:15 pm

here's an irrelevant fact. Papa John's gives you half off when the Nats score 7. Don't they give half off when Yanks score 6?

10 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:16 pm

Yes, it's 6 with the Yankees.

11 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 6:18 pm

Crap. Obligatory homer

12 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:19 pm

Rendon smoked that ...

13 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:23 pm

Little Miggy!

14 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:24 pm

Oh, joy, a pitcher hitting.

15 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:25 pm

just happy that Tanaka didn't hurt himself

16 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 6:25 pm

I don’t mind Tanaka striking out

17 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 6:25 pm

So fucking stupid. May as well pull a random dude from the crowd to hit.

18 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:27 pm

Go has his 6 to 12 curve working

19 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 6:29 pm

I'm glad Frazier is back. Don't know where he's going to get his abs.

20 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:30 pm

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh.

21 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:30 pm

I'm not happy with the LOB.

22 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 6:30 pm

These other two, however . . .

23 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 6:41 pm

Didi gets that 99 out of 100 times. Shite!

24 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:42 pm

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh.

25 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 6:42 pm

This isn't going well.

26 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 6:43 pm

Well this sucks

27 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:43 pm

When Tanaka doesn't have it, he just doesn't have it.

28 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 6:47 pm

Obligatory passed ball.

29 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 6:47 pm

What a shitshow.

30 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 6:48 pm

Finally

31 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:49 pm

yech. have you noticed that Tanaka takes off his cap on the way to the dugout?

32 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 6:55 pm

damn, Gio working fast.if we can get to the pen, still has a great chance.

33 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:01 pm

that's better. good D by Judge

34 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:03 pm

Hey, if pitching from the stretch is what it takes for 1-2-3 innings, have at it Tanaka ...

35 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 7:04 pm

Ha. Classic.

36 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:04 pm

Jesus, Kay, CLINTON was President in the 90's ... you daft birk!

37 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:05 pm

Yay, error

38 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:05 pm

I'll accept the E

39 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:05 pm

I'll take it!

40 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:07 pm

FDR, Ike, Clinton, Coolidge, Hoover ... is my guess

41 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 7:09 pm

That'll do. Big fly!

42 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:09 pm

Austin!

43 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:09 pm

Tyler Austin, making them pay!

44 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:09 pm

fat pitch. Tyler!

45 Chyll Will   ~  May 15, 2018 7:10 pm

Papa John's doesn't stand much of a chance in The Bronx unless you're giving it out at half the price of any other pizza in town. Six runs figures to be a pretty frequent achievement, so it's easier to move inventory. They'll make their money in any regard. Not so much in DC, however, where pizza is... um... *ahem*... *cough-cough*... seven runs would make it appear as more of a reward with the Nats.

Even so, I wouldn't even touch that crap if it were free.

46 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:13 pm

an AB w/O injury is good for Tanaka

47 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:13 pm

Honestly, Andujar, did you not WATCH Austin's at bat???

You hammer the outside curveball THE OTHER FUCKING WAY.

48 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:15 pm

Chill, funny how local spots offer "NY style" pizza. It's pizza. not the crap from PJ

49 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:16 pm

I'm about 10 miles north of Nats Park. Thunder rolling. Might be a long nite

50 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:18 pm

[40] Damn, missed Harry S.

[45] Papa John's really is crap.

51 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:19 pm

byw, Kendrick has been an excellent sub for Murphy.

52 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:20 pm

[49] Since it's the top of the 5th next, the Yankees may really regret not scoring in the 1st two innnings ...

53 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:22 pm

[49] That is one UGLY looking radar map.

54 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:24 pm

Tanakasan has a good inning. now please get a lead for him.

55 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 15, 2018 7:25 pm

[0] Oh Robbie..one of my all time favorite players to watch, just so smooth. Maybe it WAS a mistake? No regulation at all in the DR for OTC drugs, or so I would imagine..

I have WiFi trouble, Gameday not working smoothly. Glad they cut it to 3-2.

56 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:25 pm

Living in the pacific NW in the early 90s I came across Hawaiian pizza, which has ham and pineapple. An abomination. But the pizza outside of the greater NY area is not good.

57 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:28 pm

Line drive in the box score

58 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 7:29 pm

I think Stanton looks like The Rock sometimes.

59 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 15, 2018 7:30 pm

[56] Only 9:25AM here but I'm already thinking pizza for lunch. There's one NY Style place in town and lucky for me it's 5mins from my office. B- or C+ if in NYC, but for here it's an A.

60 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:30 pm

[55] He was prescribed it by his Dr.

Have you read the statement "he" put out, especially the first paragraph?

Reads guilty to me ...

61 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:32 pm

let's get a lead, please

62 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 7:32 pm

Tough take. Good call, blue. For once.

63 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:32 pm

Time to cash in these ducks on the pond, to mix metaphors

64 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:33 pm

Just a bit outside

65 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 7:34 pm

Son of a fucking bitch!

66 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:37 pm

I’ve been on two different diuretics because I have developed high blood pressure. I’m in my fifties. Cano couldn’t show a valid medical reason for it.

He’ll need to get 3000 hits for the Hall, and have to wait a few years.

67 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:38 pm

Ties it up

68 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 15, 2018 7:38 pm

[60] Just settling in here, will look it up.
[66] I think he'l make it anyways, by the time he retires then the five years, the PED hawks may not be voting anymore.

69 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:38 pm

great AB

70 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:38 pm

[58] I've said here before, he's half "The Rock", half "Arod"

71 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 7:42 pm

[70]. Ha. Yes! Dwayne Johnson cracks me up.

72 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:43 pm

Man, Andujar's ankles are taking a beating this game.

73 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:43 pm

10 pitches

74 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 15, 2018 7:44 pm

Shoulda woulda coulda.

75 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:45 pm

God, what a frustrating at bat from Andujar.

76 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:45 pm

What a frustrating game. Sooooooooooo many LOB.

77 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:45 pm

Rats. Should have been more

78 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 15, 2018 7:48 pm

Hope they can take this one. My boy Jazz Jr said 'tomorrow is Scherzer? We're doomed for sure..'

79 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:49 pm

Phew. That one could have gone much further.

Funny to watch Sanchez tap his glove, down, Down, DOWN and Tanaka hung it up big and fat.

80 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:49 pm

let's get out of the inning ASAP

81 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:50 pm

Scherzer may just be the best pitcher in MLB now

82 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:50 pm

[78] It's an UGLY radar map.

83 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 7:52 pm

nice play by the kid.

84 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 7:52 pm

Yet ANOTHER hanger from Tanaka.

85 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 7:58 pm

Ouch

86 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 8:04 pm

Rain finally delays. how long? could be a long one.

87 rbj   ~  May 15, 2018 8:04 pm

Rain delay

88 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 8:06 pm

question: if it rains for a couple of hours, cab they finish tomorrow as part of a day/nite double header? not sure on the rules

89 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 8:07 pm

[88] Tomorrow's forecast is rain all day.

90 Boatzilla   ~  May 15, 2018 9:11 pm

I thought Robbie's press release was well done. It sounded like it came from the heart. I believe him.

I believe him more than I believe he would be stupid enough to goof up like that, given the current rules.

On the other hand, I never gave a fuck about PED use. It was part of the game. Tacitly approved by owners and the league, until it wasn't. Who are we to judge?

91 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 15, 2018 9:22 pm

nite all

92 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 9:49 pm

[90] Really?

I thought the 1st paragraph was absolute weasel bullshit and it made me more than certain he was guilty.

You'll notice that he never bothers to identify this mystery "medical ailment"?

I wonder why ...

93 cult of basebaal   ~  May 15, 2018 9:52 pm

Frankly, he should have gone with the I-like-to-burn-one-down-in-the-offseason excuse, hell, they'd love him *more* in Seattle ...

94 Boatzilla   ~  May 15, 2018 10:02 pm

[92] Yeah, well he was guilty, but he had to explain it. It was probably a "recovery and fatigue" issue.

The weird thing, in my view, was using "Performance Enhancing Substances" (PES?) rather than the more widely used PED. I guess "drugs" is too scary.

95 thelarmis   ~  May 16, 2018 1:55 am

Just chiming in to say, I have an *awesome* pizza joint here in Atlanta. There are several locations and I’ve been a regular for the nearly 22 years I’m down here. If I couldn’t find top shelf NY style pizza, I doubt I would’ve stayed!

Cult and I texted about Robbie. Really sucks...

GO YANKS!! !!!

96 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 16, 2018 11:32 am

lite rain in DC area at noon.I'm guessing they will play the finish of the first. Calling for heavier rain tonight. Glad I didn't spend for tickets.

97 rbj   ~  May 16, 2018 12:34 pm

Ugly looking radar, but they are playing in Baltimore.

Hmm, Yankees were worried about Cano and PEDs back in the day?

98 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 16, 2018 4:06 pm

both games pp till July 19. rats.

99 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 16, 2018 4:07 pm

oops, June 18

Hooray baseball

stuck with KC feed. really don't care about KC car dealers, Sonic outlets, Ford Midwest dealers, Etc. ..

103 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 7:21 pm

[101] Finally. Been a long, longing week.

Didi is just a tire fire right now. No idea why he's batting 3rd.

104 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 18, 2018 7:23 pm

also.. they are pushing give aways for Lou Pinellas rookie jerseys and George Bret pine tar bobble heads, both 50th anniversary.

105 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 7:28 pm

Big man is off so far this inning.

106 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 7:30 pm

Well, 1 isn't so bad.

107 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 7:50 pm

I think Torres is going to be a keeper.

108 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 8:04 pm

Big K for CC, but he's got plenty more to do here ...

109 rbj   ~  May 18, 2018 8:11 pm

Oy, third out

110 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 8:12 pm

[107] Ugh, that's possibly 2+ runs down to his defense tonight.

Fuck.

111 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 18, 2018 8:12 pm

Jesus fucking Christ, Gleyber!

112 rbj   ~  May 18, 2018 8:15 pm

The run clearing double is upcoming.

115 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 8:18 pm

Phew.

Bats need to awaken ...

116 rbj   ~  May 18, 2018 8:19 pm

Finally. Could have been much worse

117 rbj   ~  May 18, 2018 8:22 pm

Yankees looking like they’ve only played half a game since Sunday

118 rbj   ~  May 18, 2018 8:40 pm

Judged an out. Motion for a run denied

119 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 8:45 pm

John Elway is my guess.

120 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 18, 2018 8:46 pm

Tie this sucker up.

121 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 8:50 pm

Sooooooo many hanging sliders, so little contact.

122 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 18, 2018 8:51 pm

This is fucking brutal.

Fuuuuuuugh.

125 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 18, 2018 9:01 pm

Is Stanton's stance even crazier tonight?

126 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 18, 2018 9:07 pm

These hits are laughable. Can I get a line drive?

127 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 18, 2018 9:10 pm

Finally.

128 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 9:16 pm

Well, 2 is a start.

129 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 9:28 pm

1-45 and still batting 3rd.

130 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 9:39 pm

David Cone is The Best. Taxi impressions. lol...

133 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 18, 2018 9:50 pm

This game sucks. But Cone's story about not having a HS baseball team and trying out as 17 year old at an open tryout at Kaufmann stadium is pretty cool.

134 cult of basebaal   ~  May 18, 2018 10:01 pm

Well, that sucked.

135 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  May 19, 2018 4:59 pm
