"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

On and On

So the past week or so hasn’t been inspired for our boys. Yanks lost a couple of series, then split a double-header with the Mets yesterday.

Funny how time passes in baseball. Doesn’t it seem as if Stanton and Judge aren’t even on the team it’s been so long since they played?

Anyhow, they got four on the south side of Chicago this weekend and then back home to face the Rays and Astros.

Meanwhile, man, what a horrible turn of events for Cookie Monster David Ortiz. Much as I loved rooting against him as a player, I hope he feels better soon. Just awful, huh?

Yeah. Sports rivalry between cities sure beats wars between city states. Hate him on the field, respect off the field.

Thing is ... it's just such a strange story (that I assume is going to get stranger):

Among the suspects in custody was the alleged shooter, identified by authorities as Rolfy Ferreyra, aka Sandy, a skinny, tattooed 25-year-old who officials said had confessed to the shooting.

In a statement, officials said the weapon used, a Browning Hi Power semi-automatic pistol, had been handed to suspect Oliver Moises Mirabal Acosta, then to suspect Porfirio Allende Dechamps Vasquez, AKA The Kid, who buried it in the garden of his home.

Both men have been arrested and the gun has been recovered.

Also under arrest were Joel Rodríguez de la Cruz, aka Squiddy; Reynaldo Rodríguez Valenzuela, aka The Chinaman; and the suspected driver of the motorcycle, Eddy Vladimir Feliz García, aka The Package.

Many were caught in the same clothes they were seen wearing on surveillance video, Bautista said.

The four suspects still at large were identified as Luis Alfredo Rivas Clase, aka The Surgeon, as well as a woman known as The Venezuelan, or Red, and two other men, prosecutors said in a statement.

The Kid, The Chinaman, The Package, The Surgeon and ... Squiddy?

That's ... some sort of deal for only $7,800 ...

In happier news ... Kendrys Morales is on the 10-day IL, retro to 6/12.

Tauchmann recalled.

[3] You mean a Yankee went on the DL? I'm shocked. I guess legging out three hits took a toll.

The history of juiced balls and how today's home run binge fits in


A really good read that lets you know how historic stats may be skewed.

Just some random thoughts to chew on:

Cody Bellinger: .352 .445.678 1.123. Holy shit!

The Minn. Twins: 45-22, BEST in MLB! Anyone see this coming? Their top 5 guys are having well-above careen years.

Seattle: 29-43, an easy last place in the West. Remember when they were in first? They had a FAST fall from Grace.

Who is the real Gio Urshela:
The guy with a previous career OPS UNDER .650
Or the Yankees with: .312 .366 .468 .834

The Sox have a great team. Same as last year (108 Wins) sans Kimbrel.
How can they only be 1 game over .500?

Who is the team for us to beat? The Sox or the Rays?
(I still think it's the Sox)

And away we go.

8 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:32 pm

[2] Crazy crazy story..likely never going to get the real scoop.

[6] Dodgers looking good but lack a pen. We'll take them in the Serious.

9 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:33 pm

Old friend Ivan Nova! Not sure why they traded him..

10 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:33 pm

[8] Oh, I think this one is *all* coming out ... Gonna get weird.

11 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:34 pm

[9] He's not all that good?

12 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:34 pm

[11] Think there was an injury in there as well, IIRC.

13 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:39 pm

Didn’t Nova have TJ surgery?

Gift runs are always welcome

14 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:44 pm

[11] No, but as a 3 or 4 he's very serviceable?

[10] I don't know..Big Papi one of the most (THE most?) beloved players of modern times..look how quickly/mysteriously he got through the whole PED thing. My Dominican/NY friend said it'd be super easy to pay off anyone in DR to change the story..

15 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:47 pm

[14] There's already reports coming about the woman from the story, "Red" buying an 85k Lexus with cash the day before the shooting, perhaps with Papi's money.

16 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:47 pm

[14] Not this year he doesn't seem to be.

17 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:48 pm

I heard he was schtupping a drug lord’s woman. Despite being married. Would make the motive easy to understand (not right though.) but yeah, they’re just writing a new tale.

Ah, the common 3-6-4 DP.

18 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:55 pm

[17] We all make bad decisions in life, but schtupping a drug baron's lady would rank very very near the worst..

19 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:57 pm

[14] I hope they pay more than they did to hire Sandy, The Kid, The Surgeon, The Package, The Package and Squiddy ...

20 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 7:58 pm

Damn, The Chinaman will never forgive me for including The Package twice and leaving him out in [19].

21 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:01 pm

[20] 'I believe "Asian-American" is the currently accepted term, Dude..'

22 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:11 pm


23 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:24 pm

Time to head to Oakland, Yanks should take this one easily. Enjoy the game!

24 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:29 pm

[23] um, don’t jinx.

25 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:32 pm


26 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:38 pm

Andy Stinky reference!

27 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:46 pm

Quit walking dudes, Happ! Especially lead off guys! Grrr....

28 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:48 pm

Uh, JA?

How about a 3rd out here???

29 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:48 pm

Uh, I suppose he's got to get 1st and 2nd outs first.


30 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:48 pm

Atta boy, Happ! Well fucking played.

31 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:51 pm

Like Neil Young sang:

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us
Hapless, Hapless, Hapless.

32 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 8:58 pm

But an extra $2 million for Keuchel will wreck the budget of a $4 billion operation.

34 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 9:00 pm

Kahnle’s arm is going to fall off, isn’t it?
Everyday TK.

35 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 9:01 pm

[33] Heh.

36 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jun 13, 2019 9:07 pm

Good one, Cult. My android phone doesn't number our comments for some reason. Now that's gonna be in my head all night.

37 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 9:10 pm

Gah ... thought GGBG might have gotten another one there.

38 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jun 13, 2019 9:12 pm

[24] I jinxed it :(

39 rbj   ~  Jun 13, 2019 9:13 pm

Gotta get up early, night all.

40 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jun 13, 2019 9:36 pm

Nice hanger.

41 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 10:22 pm

Kay with the Nostra call on the single

42 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 13, 2019 10:28 pm

Another load-of-bollocks game

43 yankintexas   ~  Jun 13, 2019 11:53 pm

Ottavino and his 1.30 WHIP isn't cutting it. I never thought I'd say this but if only he had Betances-type control he would be lights out.

44 Boatzilla   ~  Jun 14, 2019 1:27 am

This team is flagging because....you get one guess...

NOT ENOUGH GD PITCHING! I'm talking to you Hal.

It seems like they are waiting for the Second Coming of Severino. It will be way too late, by then.

45 rbj   ~  Jun 14, 2019 7:24 pm


46 rbj   ~  Jun 14, 2019 7:28 pm

A-Yup. Sigh. #obligatoryhomer seems to affect every starter nowadays.

47 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 14, 2019 7:33 pm

[44] A-yup.

48 rbj   ~  Jun 14, 2019 7:36 pm


49 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 14, 2019 7:45 pm

Unless Stanton and Judge can pitch, this season could slip away in a hurry.

50 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 14, 2019 7:51 pm

Well, I guess this is going to free up my night fairly soon ...

51 rbj   ~  Jun 14, 2019 8:03 pm

New season of battle bots. That might reduce my stress.

52 rob_smith_51   ~  Jun 14, 2019 8:29 pm

What is the record for most double plays in a game?

53 rbj   ~  Jun 14, 2019 8:31 pm

G and Judge will entertain us with majestic moon shots, otherwise, yeah, the starting pitching is turning into a pumpkin.

54 rbj   ~  Jun 14, 2019 8:41 pm

CC is cooked. Get #250 in a 12-10 nail biter then retire.

55 cult of basebaal   ~  Jun 14, 2019 8:49 pm

Good night all. I hear rain is in the forecast for tomorrow ... might be for the best.

56 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jun 14, 2019 9:01 pm

Fucking Bollocks.

57 Boatzilla   ~  Jun 14, 2019 9:14 pm

I see no reason to keep watching this game. Well, there's always tomorrow, we got our ace TBD on the mound.

58 Boatzilla   ~  Jun 14, 2019 9:15 pm

BTW, don't blame this one on Cessa, he's the only one fielding his position.
