"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice
     

Par Avion—Look, Up in the Sky

Well, that was weird and strange and annoying. If it were any other two teams I might have enjoyed the spectacle of it, the novelty. As it was, even with a healthy lead in the division race, I was so irritated by the London series that I didn’t watch either game live, instead choosing the coward/sane person way out by following on Gameday, DVRing the game and then half-heartedly watching later.

Yanks won both—they resembled beer league softball at its finest—and we’ll take it. Luke Voit going on the injured list is a drag for sure but not a catastrophe. Bombers come home to play a pair against Los Mets out in Queens and then they’ve got four against the Rays. Be nice to end this first half with another solid week but hiccups happen.

Never mind the jet lag:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Glad MLB is carrying the game, since I'm in NJ and my MLBTV wont carry it. Costas has his detractors, but he clearly loves the game. Kaat is ok. Let's keep the streaks alive!!!!

2 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:22 pm

Well, that was what? A quarter inch from a Kraken bomb and the lead?

Meh.

3 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:27 pm

gonna be a quick hook for Big Maple

4 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:31 pm

that's an all star throw

5 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:35 pm

Evening all. Looks like the dog walk wasn’t successful.

6 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:42 pm

Ah, but sitting with some bourbon does

7 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:42 pm

3 singles, a run. kinda old fashioned

8 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:44 pm

Have I mentioned I hate pitchers hitting.

9 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:45 pm

Even when it works.

10 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:45 pm

FC, now a pitcher batting. but a sacrifice! is this 1957?

11 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:48 pm

2 ks for the Machine? WTF?

12 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 6:59 pm

with the focus on the Homers and the pen, let's not forget the great D.

13 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:06 pm

so do we go and by wheeler? don't think he's much of an upgrade over our IL and AAA starters

14 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:09 pm

I’m beginning to think we won’t see Sevy this year.

15 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:11 pm

stroman is a better idea

16 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:15 pm

not happy when anyone named JD comes up against us.

17 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:16 pm

I’ve heard talk of Clint for Matthew Boyd of the Tigers.

18 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:17 pm

Good time for a K

19 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:20 pm

I fear Clint is gone by August ...

20 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:23 pm

Mets radio feed on here, they're very good but the usual nonsense about Gary being a 'poor defensive catcher', right before he throws a laser for the CS!

21 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:36 pm

Nice from GGBG

22 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:38 pm

Good, Paxton off the base path.

23 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:38 pm

nice sac

24 RIYank   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:42 pm

[20] Yeah that's weird.
I feel like this standardly happens, with catchers. A guy has a reputation very early in his career, and then average observers just never update in the light of evidence.
I would say Sanchez is about an average defensive catcher now, and Fangraphs actually has him very positive for most years. But he does still drop a lot of pitches, so he can't overcome that initial impression.

25 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:52 pm

[24] For sure, his arm and bat outweigh the rest.
Paxton really doesn't provide any length in his starts..

26 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 2, 2019 7:55 pm

excellent start by Paxton. one more?

27 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:05 pm

Hick's lack of hustle costs us a Run.
Turned a Triple into a Double

28 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:08 pm

Sigh. Gonna need some insurance.

29 rbj   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:17 pm

Phew, needed that DP.

30 RIYank   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:19 pm

Whew.

31 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:24 pm

There is only the slightest difference between Phew and Whew

32 mhoward120   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:34 pm

I wonder about Chad Green coming in for a late inning. What difference does it make if he’s only going to pitch one inning as the opener?

33 RIYank   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:42 pm

Hm.
The home run streak.

34 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 2, 2019 8:54 pm

Who is JD Davis?

35 RIYank   ~  Jul 2, 2019 9:03 pm

Hm.
Game.

36 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 2, 2019 9:03 pm

Can't blame Boone there too much, but I would have left in Ottavino even against the left hander, he's a better pitcher than Britton.

37 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 2, 2019 9:29 pm

Good win for the Muts, they needed it. We'll get them tomorrow.

38 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:52 am

Meh, not going to fret over this. Bats were jet lagged after two double digit wins against Boston.

39 Greg G   ~  Jul 3, 2019 11:00 am

The Yanks D let them down in this one. I think it was Darling in the booth that mentioned "Encarnacion is a DH trying to play first, welcome to interleague play."

Too bad they didn't bring in Ford as a defensive replacement. Gio at 3rd is not that much better than LeMahieu and you don't want to lose DJ's bat in a close game, but Encarnacion hasn't been hitting very well anyway.

The Yanks were due to lose one, and it wasn't like they were blown out. We'll probably pound them for 15 runs tonight. I also was sad that the Mets ended Dj's hitting streak and the homer streak.

40 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:13 pm

looking for a W tonight. even on the espn feed

41 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:14 pm

42 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:15 pm

43 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:17 pm

nice decision

44 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:17 pm

That’s more like it.

47 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:22 pm

Hicks looks lost up there

48 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:23 pm

EVERYBODY GLEYBER NOW!

49 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:25 pm

Here's hoping ze German is back tonight ...

50 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:26 pm

Gleyber picks him up.

[46] Sterling is taking tomorrow for health reasons, Kay has some blood on his vocal chords.

51 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:26 pm

And he's more 1940 than 1945.

52 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:27 pm

[50] Neither sounds good. Eeek.

53 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:28 pm

not a particularly good return to the mound

54 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:28 pm

Well, that wasn't an optimal start.

55 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 3, 2019 6:56 pm

65 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 3, 2019 7:56 pm

Is Vargas the one who went after the Mets beat reporter?

66 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:01 pm

[65] don’t know. It’s the Mets so it could be any one.

67 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:03 pm

Nice tack on.

68 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:09 pm

Chapman?

70 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:33 pm

71 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:43 pm

Whoa, Michael Kay is out for the season?? Who's going to replace him, Ruocco?

72 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:45 pm

[71] Season? I hadn’t heard that. Jeebus but this DL nonsense is growing.

73 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:52 pm

[65] Yes. He and Calloway.

Vargas looks like a character from a spaghetti western.

74 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:53 pm

[72] Yeah, saw on Twitter he's having what seems to be major surgery on his vocal chords.

75 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:55 pm

[73] Happy 4th, Boat! I'm celebrating by taking cheap, efficient publicj transport to pick up my cheaply available medicine on the government health insurance. Then walking home safely at night while drunk. :)

76 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:55 pm

On Sterling, I fear the end is near. He's 80 FFS. Apparently, the last time he took a day off Mattingly was in the line up. A true icon.

77 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:56 pm

[75] Don't forget your galoshes....and your ark.

78 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 3, 2019 8:58 pm

Another story of the mismanagement of a young Yankee talent. Goes back to Mickey.

[76] 81 tomorrow, same birthday (if not year) as The Boss.

My dad’s memory is starting to go (forgetting to turn the stove off) he’s 86.

82 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 9:13 pm

Good job, Chad.

83 Boatzilla   ~  Jul 3, 2019 9:23 pm

[80] Sorry to hear that. Mid 80s is when is usually starts. The last trip I took with my Dad was to Shanghai when he was 83. He held it together pretty well. But the next time he visited Tokyo at 85 was not pretty....soon after he was in a care facility.

84 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 9:28 pm

[83] Thanks. Sister’s MiL is already in a memory care facility and we buried her husband last week.

Plus I had to do a first and put a dog down last August due to cognitive dysfunction syndrome. Mind was gone, just the body worked. Still continent though.

85 rbj   ~  Jul 3, 2019 9:30 pm

Nice win. Now time to bury the Devil Rays.

The only thing I can think of is that Boone is going to rely heavily on the better relievers down the stretch and wants them to rest now.

But every game counts the same, bury the Rays now and don’t have to worry about down the stretch.

Phew, DP.

182 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:34 pm

untied!

183 rbj   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:34 pm

Hicks comes through, potential W for CC.

184 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:42 pm

going for a record for RLSP?

185 rbj   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:47 pm

Huh, CC back out there.

186 BobbyB   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:49 pm

He shouldn’t be.

187 rbj   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:50 pm

Nope. Sigh.

188 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:50 pm

not good. at all

189 BobbyB   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:50 pm

That was downright bad managing. Boone’s an idiot.

190 BobbyB   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:51 pm

If they lose, it’s all on Boone. My wife, who barely follows, said CC was toast.

191 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:52 pm

"The Aaron Boone Experience" is like watching a child try to drive a Ferrari.

192 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:52 pm

why was CC still in the game?

193 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:53 pm

cult. otoh, you don't wine with a million guys LOB

194 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 6, 2019 5:55 pm

Sure, the hitters should have swept the leg innings before, and they didn't ... doesn't forgive managing like you've had a lobotomy.

195 BobbyB   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:00 pm

Ha! Best description ever!

196 rbj   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:16 pm

Well walking the dog didn’t work.

197 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:16 pm

Looks safe

198 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:20 pm

So Otto does the job. only problem was he should have pitched the 7th.

199 rbj   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:31 pm

Hicks! Tied up

200 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:31 pm

OMG. Hicks

201 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:36 pm

So does Boone bring 9n the right pitcher? Greene? I'd guess Tommy K. but one pitch, one out

202 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:39 pm

guess bot Greene. get them tomorrow

203 rbj   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:39 pm

Well that sucked even more

204 BobbyB   ~  Jul 6, 2019 6:41 pm

Could have been worse. At least Cashman took Holder away from Boone.

205 rbj   ~  Jul 7, 2019 12:50 pm

Ok, let’s win today.

206 rbj   ~  Jul 7, 2019 12:58 pm

Robots for balls and strikes. Damn low

207 rob_smith_51   ~  Jul 7, 2019 1:00 pm

[206]. That is what I just told my daughter.

208 BobbyB   ~  Jul 7, 2019 1:05 pm

Anyone know why they’re wearing Angels caps all weekend?

209 rbj   ~  Jul 7, 2019 1:32 pm

Fourth of July weekend.

210 BobbyB   ~  Jul 7, 2019 2:04 pm

They look stupid. Especially the NY. How about just a small flag on the cap. Hurts the eye. Looks like something the RS would do.

211 rbj   ~  Jul 7, 2019 3:08 pm

Dog walking didn't work again.

212 rbj   ~  Jul 7, 2019 6:04 pm

Oh wow Frankie Brains is done catching after his sixth concussion. Smart move.

213 rbj   ~  Jul 11, 2019 6:28 pm

RIP, Jim Bouton.

214 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 6:14 pm

Hooray, baseball!

215 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 6:53 pm

Ah, Sterling is back.

216 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 6:54 pm

Kay not allowed to speak for three weeks.

217 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 7:11 pm

Phew, safe. Gary is not fast.

218 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 7:20 pm

And wasted.

219 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 7:30 pm

Lead off triple for Gardy

220 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 7:31 pm

RBI for DJLM

221 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 7:40 pm

EE!

222 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 7:44 pm

Good inning.

223 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 7:53 pm

I’d end German’s night after six. He’s on an innings limit and the pen is rested.

224 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 8:04 pm

Hot damn, that’s a weird way to score.

I’d challenge too.

225 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 8:05 pm

Out, yup.

226 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 8:24 pm

Yeeowch. Tough guy.

227 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 8:48 pm

One down

228 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 8:50 pm

There is two

229 rbj   ~  Jul 12, 2019 8:52 pm

And three! Nice win.

230 rbj   ~  Jul 13, 2019 12:21 pm

That’s twice Gary has been hit in two games. Unintentional, but still.

231 rbj   ~  Jul 13, 2019 1:44 pm

Dammit, Kraken almost had a hit there.

232 rbj   ~  Jul 13, 2019 1:59 pm

Blergh

233 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 12:19 pm

Heck of a Wimbledon final.

234 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:17 pm

#obligatoryhomer. Yet again.

235 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:23 pm

and redux. sigh.

236 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:37 pm

[233] Yeah, late to the game because I was watching.

Tauchmann has to get that down, that was pathetic.

237 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:37 pm

[236] Also ... fuck plays.

238 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:39 pm

Challenge

239 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:40 pm

Safe for me.

240 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:41 pm

Good slide, terrible tag?

Safe!

241 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:47 pm

for once, I like instant replay

242 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:50 pm

maybe not as graceful as Gardi, but good execution

243 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:53 pm

Well, hell, for a game with 3 errors, that was a gorgeous defensive inning

244 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:55 pm

the robot strike call can't come soon enough

245 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 1:57 pm

[244] exactly. I'm just tired of watching this crap, especially on Judge

246 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:13 pm

Does anyone know if there is a way to kill the commercials during mlb.tv streams? Half I get are now in Spanish for some reason and the other half are so loud (regardless of my volume setting) they'd wake my neighbors ...

247 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:19 pm

well, the quick pull of O seems to worked out. but it seemed so "Coffee Joe"

248 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:19 pm

[246] I just mute my iPad.

249 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:20 pm

cult, I usually press the mute button and take a bathroom break (or refill the glass)

250 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:26 pm

T!

251 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:28 pm

Finally a home run for this team.

252 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:28 pm

Well, if I'm at the computer, I'll mute it (though I have found some commercials manage to override that), but sometimes, at night, I like to just listen to the game (since I can't stand Sterling and Waldman) and it's just so annoying when a commercial just starts BLARING at me ...

253 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:28 pm

very generous scorer. I'd call it E-5

254 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:31 pm

And good for Tauchmann

255 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:33 pm

Didi looks like he needs a day off.

256 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:34 pm

Yeah, he's been ... well, not good today.

257 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:36 pm

Time to put the Rays Os game on.

258 rbj   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:37 pm

Base hit, that’s over.

259 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 2:51 pm

the inconsistent strike calls is plain awful

260 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 3:01 pm

nice w

261 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 14, 2019 3:57 pm

gotta win the next series, put the Rays way back.

262 rbj   ~  Jul 15, 2019 6:11 pm

Yay, Kenny’s in the booth

263 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 15, 2019 6:12 pm

wtf? Pain needs an opener

264 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 15, 2019 6:13 pm

paxon

265 rbj   ~  Jul 15, 2019 6:17 pm

Free out, thank you.

266 rbj   ~  Jul 15, 2019 6:17 pm

Rats

267 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 15, 2019 6:21 pm

not a terrible 1st. now let's jump on em

268 rbj   ~  Jul 15, 2019 6:59 pm

Ugh.

269 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 15, 2019 7:01 pm

not a great pitch, but Urshella looking good again.

270 rbj   ~  Jul 15, 2019 7:21 pm

Don’t run on Judge’s arm.

271 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 15, 2019 7:33 pm

Howdy, all. Don't see that every day. Homer the pitch after just missimg one.

272 rbj   ~  Jul 15, 2019 7:37 pm

Now that’s a free out.

273 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 15, 2019 7:38 pm

And to quote myself, you don't see that every day. Yay, Gary.

274 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 15, 2019 7:42 pm

at least avoided another hr
