"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Sox it to Me?

Holy crap, did the Sox—who are having a ridiculously good year—ever lay it on the Yanks last night. Just leveled them. Which prompted ESPN to run a headline today calling this the greatest Sox team of them all. Which then prompted a Red Sox pal o mine to leave me a message trying to make me feel better by complaining about ESPN putting a hex on his team … after they beat the shit out of the Yanks last night … during a virtually flawless season so far….

Ever thus to deadbeats, as the saying goes.

Anyhow, the Yanks have played like doo doo lately. No better place than Fenway Park to break out of a slump and show some fight.

Never mind the standings:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

1 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 3, 2018 6:15 pm

Yesterday was bad. Hope today is good. That’s all!

2 rbj   ~  Aug 3, 2018 6:26 pm

Yeesh

3 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 3, 2018 6:27 pm

This is a must win game and it already sucks.

4 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 3, 2018 6:28 pm

Most troubling of all, more than a rookie ump looking like a rookie, is that Severino has been horseshit.

5 rbj   ~  Aug 3, 2018 6:33 pm

Bollocks

6 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 3, 2018 6:33 pm

I need something better to do with my Friday night. Sigh.

7 rbj   ~  Aug 3, 2018 6:35 pm

Nice, Hicks

8 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 3, 2018 7:03 pm

[4] Well, rookie ump has had a bullshit rookie ump strikezone against the Yankees in this game ... witness the last two called strike threes in the last inning.

Robot. Fucking. Umpires.

9 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 3, 2018 7:16 pm

Squared, squared, squared.

Out, out, out.

That kind of game, that kind of series, that kind of season ...

10 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 3, 2018 7:40 pm

Torres ... sigh.

He's not a natural 2nd baseman, but, ####, he's got to make that play.

11 rbj   ~  Aug 3, 2018 7:48 pm

Wow, Luis for the sixth

12 rbj   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:04 pm

Should we just congratulate the Shit Sawx on another WS title?

13 thelarmis   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:05 pm

This asshole has only thrown 68 pitches in 7 innings. Way to make the pitcher work. Total fucking bollocks.

14 rbj   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:13 pm

Utterly pathetic. At best a split. Which is not what we need

15 thelarmis   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:14 pm

Aaaaand another 8 pitch inning. I mean, why even show up and play?

16 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:22 pm

I swear the pitchers that dominate the Yankees simply throw strikes all game long.

17 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:25 pm

That kid is going to get bombed tomorrow. Sweet.

18 rbj   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:26 pm

Crap, a rookie tomorrow. We don’t get to URP others.
Bollocks, bollocks, bollocks.

19 thelarmis   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:27 pm

86 Fucking pitch complete game. 68 strikes. Zero walks. Fucking bullshit.

20 Alex Belth   ~  Aug 3, 2018 8:58 pm

There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.

21 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:14 pm

Time to take a chance with Adams. Good luck, kid

22 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:17 pm

Well that didn't take long.

23 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:23 pm

Tune in late and it's already 2-0. Great. Off to party soon so going to miss the rest.

24 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:24 pm

[23] Have fun. Watching this series hasn't been so far.

25 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:29 pm

{24] Boston Massacre ...

26 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:44 pm

Nice, Hicks.

27 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:46 pm

Oh, look at that - we actually have a walk through a third of the game. Impressive. No hits or runs of course. I can’t believe we’re not losing by double digits. I’m sure that’s coming soon enough...

28 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:58 pm

Sigh.

29 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:58 pm

Blargh.

30 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:59 pm

We got a hit! Wahoo! A hit and a walk. Whoa. Maybe we shouldn’t have forfeited the game. Nah...

31 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 4, 2018 3:59 pm

[25] That's pro-nounced Mass-a-cree

32 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:00 pm

I can’t believe it was only a solo job. I’m surprised it wasn’t a 5-run homer.

33 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:01 pm

That’s more like it - follow the homer with a walk. Error now, please. And/or balk, wild pitch, passed ball...

34 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:07 pm

Look at that: yet another uncompetitive 1-2-3 inning from an offensive offense. Blink and the frame is finished. Why even play the game?

35 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:15 pm

Porcello wasn’t good. Evo doing the same thing. I could throw a CG against this team in under 90 pitches...

36 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:19 pm

Pathetic offense.

37 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:21 pm

Not a bad start for Adams, against this lineup. Bad offense.

38 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:28 pm

Oh, a non 1,2,3 inning. How wonderful. Not.

39 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:28 pm

Why indeed ...

40 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:29 pm

Every time I check, our offensive frame is over. Blink of an eye. A’s will overtake the wild card soon enough...

41 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:32 pm

It's "The Scream" Green ... this will end well ...

42 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:34 pm

I guess they don’t wanna chance Adams facing the top of the lineup again. What does any of it matter? We’re going golfing in October and the shit sox will be having a parade.

43 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:42 pm

Yankees are gonna waste a lead off double

44 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:43 pm

Way to advance the leadoff double...

45 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:47 pm

Wasted. I’m more schocked about the leadoff double. Wasting it - and not even advancing it - was a foregone conclusion.

46 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 4:50 pm

Here comes the beat down. The big question is: can, no WILL they get to double digits in two innings?

47 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:01 pm

Of course it gets overturned.

48 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:19 pm

Of course they scored again, their starting pitcher is still in, and we went down in order...

49 seamus   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:26 pm

Lol at bringing in walker now.

50 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:27 pm

I wonder if we’ll see 10 pitches in the 9th to go down 1-2-3...

51 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:30 pm

Well there will be at least 11 pitches.

52 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:34 pm

wait, a hit with risp? Are the Yankees allowed to do that?

53 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:34 pm

I don’t believe it. Doesn’t matter anyway. Another loss is another loss and another one is coming tomorrow...

54 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:37 pm

Could you imagine if Gleyber hit yet another 3-run job?!

55 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:40 pm

C’mon, Bird. PLEASE hit a grand slam!!!!

56 rbj   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:43 pm

Rats.

57 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:43 pm

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuugh.

58 thelarmis   ~  Aug 4, 2018 5:44 pm

And that’s that.

59 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:03 pm

I was just listening to some of the pre-game on WFAN. Suzyn is worse than our team. Forget the fact that her accent is bizarre and grating, but she’s just...terrible. She can’t speak or read stats off the page. And she’s probably had practice time to go over them. Sooo difficult to listen to...

60 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:13 pm

How about scoring more runs than the Shit Sox tonight

61 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:22 pm

Will Luke Voit earn his pinstripes and become a True Yankee? (I highly doubt it...)

62 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:22 pm

Double sigh

63 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:23 pm

Expected, but still pathetic.

64 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:23 pm

Why the feck is Voit starting and batting sixth?

65 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:30 pm

[61] rispfail is now the sign of true Yankeehood

66 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:34 pm

Attaboy, Tanaka!

67 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:39 pm

Stanton is a good fielder. How comes he’s basically only DH’ing with Judge out? Walker is a switch-hitter and could be at 1st or DH and Shane Robinson wouldn’t be in our starting lineup.

68 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:44 pm

[87] it’s a mystery. Why is Voit even on the club? Both him and Robinson belong in AAA

69 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:46 pm

Oops that should reference 67. I now fear the content in 87.

70 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:46 pm

Also hi thelarmis!

71 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:47 pm

Nice catch, Didi

72 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:47 pm

Also hey rbj!

73 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:49 pm

Nailed

74 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:50 pm

Hi seamus

75 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 7:56 pm

Hey seamus!

76 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 8:11 pm

I haven’t been on the blog much but I’ve been watching. Season was fun until judge got hurt. Also not a fan of Boone as an in game manager.

77 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 8:14 pm

Hmm, not good

78 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 8:21 pm

Ha. Good pitching.

79 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 8:23 pm

Phew!

80 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 8:54 pm

This pace is agonizing

81 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 8:55 pm

Too close to overturn

82 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 8:56 pm

[80] completely

83 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:02 pm

FAIL.

84 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:07 pm

Ugh. It’s just 1-0 but with this lineup it feels like 10-0.

85 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:07 pm

Obligatoryhomer

86 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:08 pm

Of course...

87 rbj   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:22 pm

I’m falling asleep here, night all.

88 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:30 pm

You know things suck when price is shutting them down. Oi!

89 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:33 pm

I’m still baffled by starting Voit and Robinson. And not being in AAA
Especially baffled by Voit. At least Robinson sort of fills a spot on the bench but he’s started like 5 games.

90 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:37 pm

Grrrrr....that's a play Didi can make.

91 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:50 pm

Oh good, let’s give up a precious out.

92 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:51 pm

Jesus. A strike on an inside pitch bunt attempt. Sooo stoopid.

93 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:52 pm

He’s gonna strike out swinging at a fastball

94 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:52 pm

Fuck you, price

95 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:53 pm

Or whoever the hell is pitching

96 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:55 pm

Sweet. Let’s see how we don’t score with bases loaded and no outs. Or, only score one. Either way, we’ll lose in the bottom of the 9th...

97 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:56 pm

Oh, good. Bases loaded, no outs. The amazing Hicks.

98 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:56 pm

Opponents are currently 0-29 with the bases loaded vs the shit sox, which is insane. And Hicks has been terrible in these situations.

99 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:57 pm

Clearly outside. Stfu scummy fans

100 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:57 pm

Wow. YAY!!!

C’mon Stanton

103 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:58 pm

Well hell's bells.

104 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:58 pm

I'm late! What I miss??

105 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 9:59 pm

The hardest hitting singles batter ever of all time. And singles are all he pretty much hits these days...

106 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:00 pm

Jazz - you haven’t missed the walk off win. That’s coming in the bottom of the 9th...

107 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:03 pm

[106] Better not with the Pen of Doom out there!

108 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:03 pm

That’s beautiful. Really need to cash these two base cloggers

109 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:05 pm

ESPN’s box and stat lines are terrible and seem very old

110 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:05 pm

That was disgusting, Didi. I could’ve put a better swing on that. Lefty, no less.

111 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:06 pm

Doom - exactly. We’re doomed ;)

112 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:08 pm

Mega doom? That was actually pretty good. I wanted Shane to
Charge the mound and get kicked out. But that result was better.

113 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:08 pm

thelarmis my man, ever listen to M-Boom before? Just checking them out, my man Max Roach was amazing.

114 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:10 pm

Wait. We just scored our 4th run and NOW the crowd chants Yankees suck?! Wow. Their scuzziness is impressive. My hatred for any and everything shit sox is very deep and real.

115 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:11 pm

Shane seems to be about my size, haha!

Yes, M’Boom is awesome!

116 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:12 pm

I thought I owned a disc or two, but now I’m thinking I don’t. I used to listen to a double live disc at a record store where I worked, I believe. Another one too.

Damn. I need glasses. It’s hard to see these tiny letters on my phone. Or, maybe I’m just hungover, haha!

117 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:13 pm

[115] I have a 'jazz cafe' DJ event coming up, going to play some plus some Ronald Shannon Jackson..will drive out all but the most heavy fans!

118 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:13 pm

Time to hang on tight.

119 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:13 pm

[116] Hungover and in need of reading glasses? We on the same page, bruh..

120 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:17 pm

Really love the leadoff walk after we finally score. Good job, dickhead

121 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:17 pm

And there's the lead off walk.

122 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:17 pm

Walking Sandy Leon, really?

123 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:18 pm

Nice, Jazz!

Here comes the 2-run homer...

124 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:20 pm

What are they complaining about now? Even without Big Babi, they still whine more than any other team.

Sit the fuck down MARKUS!!!

125 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:21 pm

Britton is #53. Wait - we didn’t retire Bobby Abreu’s number?! ;)

126 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:23 pm

If that were El Gary; he’d be vilified. Yet, lettuce can’t throw out a single runner. He couldn’t even gun down Leon, if there were a steal attempt.

127 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:24 pm

[125] I miss Abreu. Haha. Britton looks a
Bit wild. And randomly not wild at all.

128 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:27 pm

Success.

129 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:27 pm

Alright. Two more. Super nervous about rusty Betances and Chapman.

130 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:32 pm

I *love* Abreu! One of my all-time favorites :)

Steal, Brett, Steal

131 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:38 pm

Go go Gritner! Whoa. That was fucking awesome!

132 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:39 pm

Agreed. Loved Gardy taking third. Great move. I laughed out loud.

133 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:45 pm

Leadoff walk last inning. Leadoff HBP this inning. Ugh. DP please

134 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:46 pm

JFC! How about getting the lead off batter out.

135 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:47 pm

Siddown. NOW, the double play

136 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:47 pm

I think we are lucky Betances isn’t more wild. He is well known for needing regular work.

137 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:50 pm

Some dancin!

138 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:52 pm

Oh, fuck. Dellin’s pitching hand is being looked at...

139 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:52 pm

I guess he’s alright. Staying in...

140 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:53 pm

I see blood. Blister maybe.

141 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:53 pm

Oh, he’s bleeding. Side of a finger, right where he holds the seam.

Nice fucking throw Miggy!

142 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:57 pm

This game is too damn long.

143 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 10:58 pm

I’ll take that leadoff walk!

144 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:01 pm

There was no need to spin after making that catch, Markus.

145 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:02 pm

[144] I laughed so hard at that. They are so silly with their jumping to catch balls they don’t need to jump for. Trying to style everything like little leaguers.

146 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:05 pm

Alright, time to fasten the seatbelts.

Chappy, make us happy!

147 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:06 pm

I love watching Andujar hit. Just missed that though.

148 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:10 pm

Sweet. Nice fucking pitch! Sit the fuck down. That’s one.

149 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:11 pm

That was a beautiful slider.

150 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:13 pm

Walking Leon...again.

151 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:13 pm

Top of the order now...

152 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:14 pm

Ugh walking Leon? Make him hit himself on damnit

153 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:15 pm

Oakland keeps winning...

28th full count of the night. Yeesh.

154 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:15 pm

Chapman needs to pitch more regularly. He’s wild. Predictable.

155 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:16 pm

Wonderful. Tying run at the plate. Of course. I fucking HATE the bottom of the 9th at this joke of a stadium.

156 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:17 pm

That was a strike, blue

157 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:19 pm

He’s already at 23 pitches. Only 1 out...

158 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:20 pm

Yes! Sit down, chump

159 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:20 pm

Wow sweet

160 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:21 pm

Don’t walk him and give up the game winning grand slam to jd

161 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:22 pm

Yet another full count...

162 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:23 pm

Damn he sweats a lot

163 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:23 pm

Wow. He fucking walked the bases loaded. We are so losing this game. And they say baseball isn’t predictable.

164 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:24 pm

All walks.

165 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:25 pm

I don’t really understand why he wasn’t used Thursday or Friday. Everyone knows he has to work. It’s weird

166 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:25 pm

Well, we haven’t lost...yet. But it’s coming

167 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:25 pm

Ugh

168 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:27 pm

Of course. Miguel really was non chalant on that throw. ESPN is sooo happy.

Tied game. We will lose.

169 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:27 pm

Bird should’ve caught it...

170 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:29 pm

While that throw wasn’t great Bird has to get those.

171 seamus   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:32 pm

I guess we were spoiled with Tex? First baseman have to be able to scoop the ball

172 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:32 pm

They should’ve just forwarded to the 9th or forfeited to begin with. Boston won’t ever lose again and we’ll be overtaken by both AL West teams...

173 thelarmis   ~  Aug 5, 2018 11:33 pm

I was thinking about Tex. He easily would’ve had that.

We are going to go down 1-2-3 here, then Green will give up a leadoff homer over that stoopid fucking wall.

Predictable 1-2-3. I’ve gotta go to sleep. Good night.

And yes I wrote that half way through that half inning.

I said it early in the season. Everyone wanted to get rid off Joey Joe Joe. But you had a team on the cusp of the Workd Series and decide to go with a rookie manager? Aaron Boondoggle is in over his head with Sanchez and Judge out. Can’t figure out the right moves. Team as it is now doesn’t deserve to be in the post season.

Leon on...yet again. Now, tomorrow of the order. If we happen to survive another inning, Sonny Gray will lose the game for us.

Wild pitch. Wonderful

And it’s over. I knew it would happen. Never a doubt that we’d lose

I was shouting at my tv to walk Martinez. Why pitch to him with the bases juiced, and a 3 run lead?

If Holder's confidence wasn't already shot the other night, this couldn't help.
