"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Okay, Now

A good week for Los Bombers hit a snag the past few days up in Toronto. But the Yanks can still leave down with a split should they win today. They’ve got 4 against the lowly O’s this week back in the Bronx followed by 4 against the Tribe and then a west coast trip with stops in Oakland and Los Angeles.

Yanks have to win games against the lousy teams, of course, but watching them play the O’s is boring. Bring on the good squads.

Never mind prosperity:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Thanks for getting us back on-line. Need a split in T today; seems like we never play well there. OTOH, the BJ's have alot of impresive young talent.

2 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:01 pm

Afternoon.

Oh, come on blue, way low.

3 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:06 pm

Nice snag, Gio.

4 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:11 pm

Yay, a run

5 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:25 pm

I was afraid the Intertubes ate the Banter. Go Yankees!

6 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:37 pm

need some runs now, since we have yet to see the O HR.

7 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:39 pm

Are you Fucking kidding me?!?! Grrrrrrr......

8 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:39 pm

Not the way to get more runs

9 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:39 pm

crap. the rune of the mill 3,2,3 dp

10 mhoward120   ~  Aug 11, 2019 1:43 pm

With RAB no longer with us, thank heavens for the Banter.

And views ....

12 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:00 pm

#5 yes

#7 even more yes ...

13 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:03 pm

Yeah, that's three, ya goober!

14 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:06 pm

Hit and run fail.

15 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:16 pm

insurance please.

16 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:18 pm

Fuck and yeah.

17 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:18 pm

Nice outing from Tanaka. And yes insurance.

18 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:31 pm

Tanaka out for 9th? Boonie must be worried about the O's tomorrow

19 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:32 pm

Hmm, Tanaka for the ninth?

20 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:33 pm

Boone over thinks again

21 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:34 pm

now we have Vladimir Jr. not promising

22 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:38 pm

phew

23 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:39 pm

9 pitch ab not good

24 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:40 pm

This has heart break all over it.

25 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:40 pm

11 not better

26 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:42 pm

13 worse

27 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:43 pm

Helluva battle, phew. One more please.

28 mhoward120   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:43 pm

Clearly, it was all a setup for the DP. And one of the best at-bats of the season.

29 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:43 pm

de fence

30 mhoward120   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:51 pm

The bottom of the 9th seemed as long as the rest of the game.

31 rbj   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:51 pm

Thank you!

32 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 11, 2019 2:52 pm

Wooo. that was tense. BJs have a real future.

33 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 11, 2019 3:00 pm

Phew. Cheers, y'all.

34 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 9:48 am

Let's take 2 from the sorry O's

35 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 12:54 pm

Just got back from shopping with my parents and then walking the dog. Put John Thorn on suicide watch.

#obligatoryhomer

37 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 1:32 pm

Now 55 vs. the birds.

38 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 1:38 pm

can we play these guys more often?

39 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 1:39 pm

was really hoping to get 6 from Paxton

40 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 1:51 pm

Maybin the mavin

42 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 1:54 pm

is "preordained" the same as "obligatory"?

43 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 2:18 pm

though Sir Didi had another. sac fly is certainly acceptable

btw, have I mentioned how much I hate Palmer?

44 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 2:30 pm

Not gonna be easy.

45 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 2:30 pm

Pen is trying to make this a game.

46 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 2:37 pm

crapolla

47 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 2:39 pm

could have been worse. need a couple now to get more comfy

48 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 2:54 pm

one

49 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 2:58 pm

Ballgame!

50 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 6:12 pm

Good start for Green.

51 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 6:13 pm

yep, nice start

52 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 6:22 pm

Gritner!

53 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 6:22 pm

Gardi goes boom

54 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 12, 2019 6:26 pm

3-0 after 1 is acceptable

55 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 6:42 pm

The Orioles just aren’t any good.

56 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 7:15 pm

Heinz 57

57 mhoward120   ~  Aug 12, 2019 7:24 pm

Did the Yankees just pick people at random to pitch in this game?

58 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 7:30 pm

Gleyber is just playing with Baltimore the way a cat plays with a mouse.

58.

59 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 7:33 pm

[57] The Orioles might want to try that.

60 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 7:56 pm

Le Machine just missed 59.

61 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 8:06 pm

Gleyber Day! He just broke a tie with 1998 Sammy Sosa who had 12 home runs vs. Milwaukee.

And Gleyber is doing it while tested.

One more Yankee homer and the Os are Ruthed.

62 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 8:16 pm

Not good.

63 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 8:53 pm

Um, can we get some outs here?

64 mhoward120   ~  Aug 12, 2019 8:54 pm

This team seemingly never does anything easy.

65 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 8:57 pm

Outs!

66 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 8:59 pm

There’s an out.

Just imagine if the Orioles ever got some pitching.

67 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2019 9:00 pm

Three! Sweep!

Night all.

68 Greg G   ~  Aug 13, 2019 12:28 pm

Weak sauce when the O's walked Gleyber while down 5 runs in the 8th. I was hoping Gardy took them deep to clear the bases.

These games against the Os are awful, and at least seeing if Gleyber would hit a 4th dinger on the day, would have made it interesting.

The Yanks got to keep getting fat on this inferior competition as home field would really help in the postseason, especially with the pitching the Yanks are throwing up there. We can use some home cooking and backing up the scoring truck. The Home record is pretty phenomenal.

69 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 6:16 pm

First pitch!

I turned on MLBN this afternoon. Lauren Shehadi was worried about Gary Thorne’s mental health.

Orioles have been Ruthed.

70 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 13, 2019 6:35 pm

Gleyber is slacking off. Only a walk.

71 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 6:38 pm

Good job Maybin

72 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 13, 2019 6:40 pm

Seems like anyone who puts on the pinstripes anymore remembers how to hit or forgets how to pitch.

73 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 13, 2019 6:57 pm

Don Torre in the booth.

74 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 7:10 pm

And there’s the #obligatoryhomer

75 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 7:26 pm

Two run double is acceptable.

76 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 7:33 pm

That’s the proper answer.

It’s been a few innings since a home run.

77 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 7:37 pm

I meant for the Yankees.

78 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 8:41 pm

I guess only one tonight. Disappointed.

79 rbj   ~  Aug 13, 2019 8:47 pm

Ballgame, nice win. 1 pm tomorrow. Rested pen thanks to Rosa.

80 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 13, 2019 8:58 pm

I like Rosa. Great win. Keep it going.

81 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 13, 2019 10:02 pm

Kid shows promise.

82 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 9:58 am

Looking forward to some daytime baseball. SWEEP

83 rbj   ~  Aug 14, 2019 12:04 pm

I want at least 1 Yankee home run. Marisize the Orioles.

84 mhoward120   ~  Aug 14, 2019 12:23 pm

A sweep with Hapless Helpless is highly unlikely. Let him pitch the whole game and perhaps he’ll damage his arm and won’t ever be able to ptch again.

85 rbj   ~  Aug 14, 2019 12:35 pm

Marisized! 61.

86 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 12:39 pm

just tuned in. See no surprise. So Happ got through the 1st with only one run. so Sanchez and Torres tie Babe and Lou with 10+ fingers in one season against one team.

87 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 12:40 pm

dingers, not fingers

88 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 12:43 pm

Estrada is the next man up.

89 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 1:03 pm

I would like to paraphrase a song: Happlessly hoping his harlequin hovers nearby, awaiting a word. The word is: bring in the pen.

90 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 1:52 pm

could use a hit or 3

91 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 1:57 pm

ok, that's 2. need #3

92 rbj   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:03 pm

Good job Ford.

93 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:03 pm

that's what I'm talking about. Ford!

94 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:10 pm

the pen seems to be trying to give it back.

95 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:15 pm

well that sucked.

96 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:20 pm

this is turning into a wasted afternoon.

97 rbj   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:31 pm

Get those runs back

98 mhoward120   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:40 pm

Am I the only one who believes that this “super-elite” bullpen is quite overrated?

99 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:56 pm

one

100 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 2:59 pm

102 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 14, 2019 3:05 pm

and three. Happ actually gets the W.

103 rbj   ~  Aug 14, 2019 3:13 pm

Nice sweep. Orioles are under new ownership: the New York Yankees.

104 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 15, 2019 6:31 pm

Back to non-o's reality. Fucking Bollocks!

105 rbj   ~  Aug 15, 2019 6:39 pm

Fuck the hell? I just turn the game on and it’s already 7 nil?

106 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 15, 2019 6:44 pm

This ump has my favorite punch out. It's quite the upper cut!

107 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 15, 2019 6:49 pm

RBJ, i tuned in and O'Neil was saying if the ball wasn't hooked it would be 4-0 already. Goodie. 0-0. 1 out bases loaded. 2 pitches later the dude blasted a 3-2 meatball over cf wall. 4-0. 5 minutes later it's 7-0. Oo!

108 rbj   ~  Aug 15, 2019 7:03 pm

Jeebus. Potential playoff preview. Neither Green no Lasagna should be on the roster if it’s the Indians.

109 BobbyB   ~  Aug 15, 2019 7:34 pm

Back to the old Chad Green. I personally don’t see how this team, for all its offense, can seriously compete in a seven game series this playoff season even if they have Home Field advantage.
Starting pitching sucks.

110 rbj   ~  Aug 15, 2019 7:42 pm

Starting pitching has to be Cashman’s first, second and third priority this off season.

111 rob_smith_51   ~  Aug 15, 2019 10:01 pm

Every Indian starter had at least 2 hits. I guess it is harder playing against a good team.

112 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 6:08 pm

Let’s have a better start tonight.

113 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 6:28 pm

Acceptable

114 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 6:30 pm

#obligatoryhomer of course

115 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 7:27 pm

Got that run back.

116 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 7:43 pm

Kay might be back this weekend, per the MLBN crew.

117 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 7:56 pm

And a second #obligatoryhomer.

118 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 8:16 pm

Yeah, Puig has a strong arm.

119 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 8:17 pm

I am glad mix ‘n’ match is going away next year.

120 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 8:20 pm

Yeah, a second time you don’t run on Puig.

121 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 8:21 pm

Predictable

122 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 8:27 pm

Nice catch, Brett

123 rbj   ~  Aug 16, 2019 8:49 pm

Nice save Chapman.

As of this morning, the Magic No. is 29.
The FuckYouRedSox Magic Post-Season Elimination No. is 23.

125 rbj   ~  Aug 17, 2019 12:13 pm

DJ is crazy. Watches 2 outside corner strikes cool as a cucumber before banging a 3rd one over the wall.

133 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 17, 2019 1:58 pm

Trout is the best player in MLB. DJ is having a more valuable season.

134 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 17, 2019 2:08 pm

Gleybar is unreal. sign him to an extension ASAP

136 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Aug 17, 2019 2:16 pm

At least the non shutout streak is intact.

147 Boatzilla   ~  Aug 18, 2019 3:30 pm

So CC is toast. Maybe try him in the middle of an opener sandwich? He shouldn't be part of the rotation anymore.
