And so it goes...

2 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:10 pm

I forgot it was Fox and therefore Smoltz.

3 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:13 pm

Stars scratched.

4 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:16 pm

Smoltz better that Arod, happy DJ is back

5 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:18 pm

That's why Howie K should be a DH

6 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:20 pm

Nats still wearing gold numbers

7 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:21 pm

That’s the Starlin we remember

8 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:26 pm

That sucked

9 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:27 pm

Crowd noises actually pretty good

10 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:30 pm

[9] yeah have to agree

11 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:34 pm

Hi all. Random Twitter fact I saw yesterday. The 3rd oldest NL park is ........Coors Field. WTF!

12 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:44 pm

No BLM sign n to he mound tonight

13 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:47 pm

[12] huh good point. no patches either? I thought those could be standard for the season.

14 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:49 pm

No bueno.

15 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:51 pm

Ugh, it’s FOX today? I miss YES..
C’mon Big Maple Tree!

16 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:54 pm

Well that sucks

17 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:54 pm

Sigh

18 RIYank   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:55 pm

This game isn't as much fun as the first one.

19 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:55 pm

Watch for the squeeze

20 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 6:58 pm

Can't put away anyone for shite!

21 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:00 pm

Nice work, James.

22 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:01 pm

I WAITED ALL SUMMER FOR THIS?????

Hi all!

Hope you and yours are safe.

Waves!

23 cult of basebaal   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:06 pm

KING ME!

24 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:12 pm

Give it up to the DJ

25 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:13 pm

What up, Cult!

26 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:14 pm

Fucking dude robbed Judge! Damn!

27 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:24 pm

Ouch

28 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:25 pm

Dayum, Stanton!

29 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:25 pm

Wow!

30 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:28 pm

Something wrong with the FOX feed today? They keep starting replays that cut suddenly, and seems BuckSmotlz are commenting on video we are not seeing..

31 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:30 pm

[30] are you watching via mlb.tv? It's the feed mlb.tv has I think. We switched to a actual Fox feed and we see the replays now

32 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:32 pm

Voit is slow.

33 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:32 pm

[31] Yes, mlb.tv feed. Guess not synched with FOX..

How Voit-y not score there!

34 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:34 pm

[33] yeah it confused us for a while when we remembered we could switch over from mlb.tv. Though I usually prefer how mlb.tv let's us pause with more flexibility.

35 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:38 pm

Should have had more runs.

36 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:41 pm

agreed rbj. frustrating outcome.

37 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:45 pm

Le sigh.

38 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:45 pm

Miming the high 5.

39 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:46 pm

Bad luck for King..

40 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 7:49 pm

Gotta stop wasting our opportunities. We can get this.

41 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:01 pm

That's Fucking horseshit! Bah!

42 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:01 pm

For fuck’s sake

43 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:04 pm

Hi, team/family. This game is as bad as Smoltz, who’s in mid-season form.

Defense is ugly tonight and anyone other than Voit would’ve scored before.

2nd (inning) is the new 1st for Pax.

Trees down in my neighborhood; power our all day/night. I’m in my car in the driveway charging my phone, listening to Ma & Pa on my MLB app. Got ice for a cooler for my beer!

44 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:05 pm

[43]Hey Thelarmis. ugh power outages suck. Hope it comes back soon!

45 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:07 pm

Well this Fucking sucks.

46 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:07 pm

yep not well not well.

47 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:08 pm

Why is PNC on the back of the mound? I figured/hoped BLM would be there all season. That should not be a one and done.

I read - and, of course, agree with - everything said in the last post-thread. I wrote Mariano off last year, when I found out he was ‘friends’ with and supports the evil psychopath. I removed his shirt from my drawer too. Still, I about vomited when I heard he was having a baseball catch with the fucking fuck. My soul was completely crushed when I heard about the first pitch...

48 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:09 pm

Thanks, seamus. I’m supposed to do an interview via zoom tonight from my studio. Really sucks. It’s been out all day and won’t be on before midnight. Who knows if that’ll even happen...

49 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:09 pm

[47] yeah even the patches seem to be gone. I thought players might wear those all season. Really disappointing.

50 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:12 pm

In all seriousness, there ought to be a way to organize against Drumpf throwing the first pitch. It's a difficult area with no in person presence at the games for fans.

51 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:14 pm

The obligatory day off after opening day is for rain. Was it not in play for the Dodgers and Giants because it was in LA, where it rarely rains?

We haven’t capitalized tonight; so many missed opportunities...

52 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:17 pm

I saw an amazing picture of Alyssa Nakken on Opening Night. She’s the first full-time on-the-field female coach in MLB! She’s the 1B coach for the SF Giants. She was on the field in a BLM shirt and mask covering her mouth AND nose. It was once of the greatest pictures I’ve ever seen in my life! I posted in social media and then a shitstorm ensued. Sooo many ignorant, evil, idiots out there...

53 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:20 pm

[52] oh I didn't see that. I'll look for it. I posted at the Yankees on twitter not to have Drumpf throw out the first pitch and apparently had lots of trolls reply. I only noticed a couple though. I have limited vision on social media. Probably for the best.

54 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:25 pm

seamus - yeah, it’s for the best. I can’t take twitter much. Waaay too much politics there; I’m only there for some quick baseball news and that’s it.

I have a lot of music stuff with Facebook though. My drum video series is doing well there. My latest video has over 1,000 views and a lot of traction. I hope come Monday, the shit show doesn’t affect the algorithms or my numbers on the drum videos...

55 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:27 pm

Well, at least the terrorists are quite

56 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:28 pm

Make a better throw, Gleyber!

57 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:30 pm

[54] I can vouch, that's a great photo! And i've been following the drum series some. Please do keep that coming! I'm not on facebook much and I still catch it when I can.

58 rbj   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:42 pm

Just a bit outside.

59 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:46 pm

Thanks, seamus! Much appreciated. The videos live there and I’m posting every Monday. I have 10-12 in the queue, so I’ll keep it going the next 3 months ... at least!

60 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:47 pm

You can save the photo from my post if you want!

61 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:50 pm

[60] done. That's an epic moment on multiple fronts. The drum pieces are a nice use of online sharing. I keep meaning to get our drummer following those.

62 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:51 pm

Nice. Thanks! He can follow every Monday afternoon : )

63 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 8:56 pm

What's up, thelarmis. YS going to pipe in your jam this season?

64 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 9:08 pm

Just Fair - if they invite the weekend organist to play at the stadium this season, then two of our pieces will be played over the PA during pregame. But, he hasn’t heard anything yet, and I don’t know if pregame routines will be normal this season. Hopefully, it’ll be a staple next year!

65 seamus   ~  Jul 25, 2020 9:09 pm

ugh this sucks. May need to sign off early...

66 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 9:16 pm

No number links on my android, thelarmis. That is so sweet. Congrats.

67 thelarmis   ~  Jul 25, 2020 9:19 pm

Thanks, Ara! Yeah, no number links on my iPhone either

68 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 25, 2020 9:24 pm

Kyle Finnegan. I thought that was Kyle Farnsworth.

69 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 12:07 pm

Let’s have a better game today.

70 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 12:13 pm

Easy gas. 97!

71 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 12:21 pm

TBS announcers are horrible

72 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 12:27 pm

YES better figure out their canned fan noise. This intermittent bullshit is unbearably distracting. Oi!

73 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 12:54 pm

Crap

74 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 1:04 pm

This is pathetic.

75 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 1:16 pm

Mats broadcasters just as bad.

76 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 1:57 pm

Gleyber goes boom.

77 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 1:57 pm

Gleyber Day!

78 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 1:58 pm

Time to walk the terrorists.

79 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 2:04 pm

Yes!

80 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 2:21 pm

Find a gap, Gary!

81 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 2:22 pm

Oh, tie up. Time to untie, Gary

82 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 2:30 pm

I heart Gleyber.

83 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 2:31 pm

I’ll take that.

84 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 2:43 pm

This isn’t good

85 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 3:03 pm

I don't heart Gleyber's defense. An error a day keeps the gold glove away.

86 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 3:04 pm

Rats, call stands

87 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 3:10 pm

I’ll take that caught stealing

88 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 3:11 pm

Two down

89 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 26, 2020 3:14 pm

Sunday. Cheers, y'all.

90 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 3:15 pm

Three. Hooray. 2 out of three = 40-20.

91 rbj   ~  Jul 26, 2020 5:03 pm

Verlander out for the season. Astros look beatable now

92 OldYankeesFan   ~  Jul 26, 2020 5:17 pm

GOOD NEWS!!!!!
"Days after saying he would throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium in August, President Donald Trump has taken it back. But he said he will make it up later in the season.

President Trump no longer plans to throw out first pitch"

93 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Jul 26, 2020 6:51 pm

Me no like day games (middle of the night games for me and Boatzilla..)

Look forward to watching Gleyber save the day!

[92] Good news indeed!

94 rbj   ~  Jul 27, 2020 9:56 am

Welp, that was a short season. Game cancelled. I feel like the dominos are starting to fall.
