Opening Day at the Stadium.
Now, that there is a beautiful sentence.
Never mind the glare—it is sunny out there:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
No one here?!
That one was unavoitable
i'm having trouble logging into roku, so i'm watching on my phone for now. i have a car appt @ 4pm, so that'll cut into the late innings.
coney with a warren zevon reference!
wahoo! only took me into the bottom of the 3rd, but my roku is all set up and the game is on the tube. of course, it's a pitch behind the mlb app, but my phone is free...
Happy Opening Day, y'all! Stuck in parent conferences all day. Hope to catch the last few innings at home. Go Yankees!
I'm back, I think the interview went well, but they have to interview others.
Looks like Luke has gotten the Bronx Bombers off in style.
I can't watch yet (mlb.com blackout) but listening...
If the runners run once the infield fly rule is called, then it would seem that there’s no force play at second. But the runner on first wasn’t tagged. So why is he out at second?
I said it before Kaye said it.
Bird flies away!
 I was wondering that...
Voit was, and Sanchez was.
I'll say this -- I'm rooting for Greg Bird more than anyone else on the roster this year. So good to see that ball go over the wall.
First minute of radio I hear Sterling call Bird's homer. Nice! Word to Big Bird. I sincerely hope Umps learned Judge's strike zone for this year.
Final score in DC: Robbie Cano 2, Nats 0.
Luke Voit has a 5.000 OPS.
The Yankees win!
orioles are weak, doesnt matter-- seems like everyone doing their job.
only saw andujar's throwing error from brief highlight, how did it look?
something about bird always leaves me hesitating-- i feel like he has a lot of late inning solo homeruns like today? dont like those 3 strikeouts. like other yankee fans i seem to find myself a bit harsh on him but not sure why.
happy to have baseball back !
162-0! Let's GO!
Just finished watching. Go Yanks!
That was enjoyable. So glad baseball is back. Unfortunately work is a tad intense these days so no following live. But I get to watch when I get home so that’s good!
Well, I finnaly firgured out my MLB Premium package problem. My credit card number changed before the re-up and I ignored the warnings. All sorted out by about the 5th inning.
Good game. Nice pitching. and DINGERS!
Great start. Yanks alone atop the AL East.
If this winning % holds. The Yanks will win the AL East by 162-0.
awake 2 AM for this one in tokyo---
lets go yankees!
Yay, nothing to dotoday
Me neither! First live game of the year for me!
what a first inning for paxton
Stuck with the Orioles broadcasters. Boring
Well, I'll take that 1st ever Yankees inning from Paxton ...
How bad are the Orioles going to be this year
Cone is absolutely right about why I think Voit is going to be something for the Yanks ...
Dammit, Andujar ...
yikes that double play.
paxton seems to work fast-- orioles pitching seems like he'll be sitting for a while between innings hope he can keep momentum.
also was just thinking i feel bad for orioles broadcasters, etc... will be some long, tedious games w/ mound visits, etc...
although maybe wont be as bad as we're making them seem to be at the moment
Voit isn't going to fool anyone he's Mattingly or Hernandez, however ...
didnt pay attention to spring training so my first time watching paxton--- really enjoyable person to watch pitch huh?
No harm though ...
Yeah, I agree. Getitthrowit. I like those guys.
Hope he holds up.
Nicely done, Gleyber ...
Dammit. The perfect 3-2 pitch to freeze Judge.
that orioles pitcher from jersey is nice... weird strike zone though, seemed inconsistent and sort of messing with both teams.
Damn ... Paxton ... hope this is a start of another great Yankees' LHP
two weird things:
cone saying the pitcher was "slinging hash:
o'neill referring to a "new york thing" of eating parmesan before a meal? he said something like--- whats better than eating parmesan before a meal in new york?
Wtf. Quick stroll around block and it's 2-1. Rats.
Some sloppydefense. Maybe these guys could use a few weeks before the season to practice. Maybe some place warm like Florida
Ugh. Take a phone call for 10 minutes and it's 2-1??? This is going to be the first game of the year I hate, isn't it?
These are not the 1st 6 innings I was looking for.
How about some offense
I think Gleyber should lead off. Gardner is better off hitting 9th. 3rd leadoff out this game.
Yup. Gonna hate this one ...
Well, that's one ...
This would a lot more exciting if they hadn't sharted up 2 runs in the top of the 9th ...
Anyone have *any* confidence in Stanton here?
I think I'm hoping for a K, just to give Voit a chance ...
Well, Andujar, it would be nice to atone for the 1st inning ... right now.
Or ... not.
That sucked worse than Stanton's at bat.
Apparently Boone still hasn't learned how to use his ridiculously wealth of a bullpen.
Why didn't he send in Big O when Paxton was on the ropes. Sure he had been cruising, and that was a weird inning, but what else is a fireman for? Change it up, get some Ks.
Then Holder? But not for the hold. [Sigh}
I thought Boone was only bad during a playoffs. He's getting an early start this year.
 Ooops. Nevermind. I take that back. He did put him in in the 6th, after I went back to sleep. That's why I'm in an armchair.
 I know. What the hell was O'Neil talking about? Parmesan "before" a meal? A New York thing? Dude is slipping (I know it's hard to tell, but....)
Horrible news about John Wetteland. What a monster
 That sounds really weird...and yet I have a memory of a real old Italian neighborhood uncle once eating a half-spoonfull or parmesan before a meal...
 Jaysus....that's beyond appalling. Hope he rots in jail for rest of his life.
Rats, rain delay
Just Fucking wonderful.
CB Buckner still sucks.
Time for a hit. Maybe even a run.
Jeebus, Cy Bundy.
Bundy is simply too good. Grrrrrrrr......
Getting on base. Time to get someone in.
Now would be a good time fir Brett to produce something. Anything, ffs!
Need to feast on the Orioles bullpen
That's something. C'mon, Judge!
Acceptable ruling from the Judge.
Good ab by gardner! Still think he should bat 9th.
Gross ab by Stanton. Oh, well. Back in it.
Don't have to get them all back at once.
Brutal from Sanchez
Maybe flailing at outside changeups isn't really a working strategy ...
Well, that's a little better.
And that’s worse
Better, I meant
Ill take that error
This is painful
These last 2 games have been painful.
Well, this season sucks already. A cold wet blanket on my spring.
Wow PH for Gardner
Not surprising against a LHP. I love me some GGBG, but he hasn't hit lefties for about 2-3 years ...
Fuck, Stanton to the DL. Biceps strain.
" “Hopefully we get him back at some point this month,” said Boone."
Wunnerful, just fucking wunnerful.
Yup. Bad news. : (
