Yanks on the brink.
Never mind the preamble:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
Damn Straight. Go Yankees!
Phew. Giambiesque from Voit!
8 pitches. I’m assuming that he’s going out for the 2d but with Boone who knows?
I don't want Monty going more than twice through the order, is all I know.
Judge looks terrible
(5) I’ll take it
Judge looks a bit lost.
Nice start for Monty.
Higgy is just better than Sánchez behind the dish
"Dad, would Arron Judge fit into our house?"
"Kids, Aaron Judge won't fit into Japan, he's 6'8" 285"..
 Howdy RI Yank, agreed. 5 strong innings would be more than enough.
Dyamm! Voit is strong!
Picked the wrong day to switch Luke and Stanton
Get that frisbee shit OUTTA HERE!
I hope Boone doesn’t use Cole in this game. If he never started on 3 days rest, I wouldn’t be too optimistic about his going on 2, even if in relief
The force is strong with this one.
[17[ I would save Cole for tomorrow. Yanks will have to win with a patched together staff today or tomorrow.
Great AB by Gardy
Funny if it hit him???? Fuck you
Just a bit outside
 If the Yanks score about 12 and Monty goes 7 strong I think things will be fine. : )
Final debate point. The fly on Pence stayed longer than the one on Norman Bates.
He’s lost the zone. Lay off.
Darling must read the Banter.
Starting to look like my softball game this AM
Wow, leaving him in.
Most critical bases loaded situation this year
Gary could have done that.
That 1st pitch was about 6 inches inside.
I think DJ is going to walk.
 just logged on to say that exact thing.
That will work
I’ll take it, but we need more.
Getting a single run with bases loaded no outs is just not going to cut it in this game.
 That entire at bat was garbage but starting off 0-1 is not as good as 1-0, obviously. I wish I could post screen shots of Gameday strike zone. lol...
Judge having an Arod like series. FUCK!
pretty weak to only get 1 run after loading the bases with no outs.
Obviously Luke should be batting eighth, *after* the three guys who walked! Boone is the worst at line-up construction.
leadoff walk. grrrrrrrrrrr
Grr, lead off walk.
i would like J-Mo to get 21 more outs on 21 pitches. that'd be very efficient and help save the bullpen.
Yank him now
Love them lead off walks. Good shut down inning, Monty.
asshole lefty. (kevin, not jordan)
Judge ain't getting it done, but we can't sit him, so why have both Gardie and Higgy in the game.
Higgy is pretty much an automatic out and doesn't walk much. I'd much rather take my chances with Gary.
Gardy just negated any advantage over Fraizer by missing that catch. (I know very it would have been a super play)
I don't think they're going to bite on the 55 footer.
I guess that is why Gary is not in there.
Nice job, Monty.
Ballsy 3-2 pitch.
way too difficult with two 0-2 counts
 Uh, well, actually, he struck him out on one of those!
 Is there anything Boone's good at?
OMG, bullpen stirring just now!!!!
I think we’ll be 2 behind way fast
Semi intentional walk?
 Taking orders from the front office?
lucky to get 1 there.
now, ted williams is up
2 more in the dirt coming up
 Can't predict baseball.
Atta boy, Monty!
i love gio. need his bat to come back in this series.
Pretty good outcome there
Wow, how big a sigh of relief is Boone breathing?
Whew! I heartily endorse Arozarena not be pitched to again this game.
Phew, that could have been much worse.
Okay good start, let's get an actual rally this time.
Mother Fucking Bollocks!
motherfucker. i hate tampon.
Boone really pushing it now
fuck. what happened to my 21 pitches/21 outs plan? up in flames.
Are you fucking kidding me?
 Hey do you like 21 Pilots?
Why on earth does Ottavino have a ball in his hand in the bullpen?
Boone’s joking, right?
get this fucking motherfucker out and do it fast. popup to higgy.
Got dammit with the walks! Here comes another 8 hitter killer.
 even in the pen, he had no confidence. he looked like he was saying your exact comment.
Monty is a stud.
Boone is a fricken genius.
I changed my opinion. He must be a freakin GENIUS!
Okay Monty. Now let’s score a crooked number
Double play please.
How does Boone have this prescient knowledge? It's amazing.
We are so lucky to have a manager with his preternatural abilities.
Thank you. Monty’s night needs to be over.
Are you behind, or did you lose track?
Where is Frazier?
 After that circle catch I'm guessing firmly glued to the bench?
This is what happens when you let a young pitcher actually pitch, rather than being a shill in 3-card-monte.
Professional Hitter™ Gardy Gardner
 Touche, I forgot about that one.
 both. Am watching on my phone which has a delay.
 Probably right, but I'd trade offense over outfield D any day of the week.
Fuck. One guy we can not afford to lose.
Broken record time (& hi, everyone!): It’s one thing to say bunting is less prevalent now, or even that it should be. But it’s a separate matter to say MLB players should be *able* to when called upon. That attempt was not a pro approach.
can gio hit a granny with only one on? asking for a friend...
. Me too. I think we are going to need runs.
that fucking sucked.
brett doesn't appear to be having a friendly chat with their infielder.
 this team is going to give me the runs...
i want gary.
I pray this is the old lights-out Green.
 Probably will come in for the end of the game.
I think it’s Green time
hey, been watching but multi tasking. Montgomery looked good overall.
Green? Green! Green.
i still prefer my method: yankee pitchers throw 1 pitch per batter and get an out. every yankee hitter hits a grand slam, regardless of how many runners are on base. BOOM!
sit the fuck down. it was *absolutely* a strike. shithead.
 great Edie Brickell song!
I’ll take this Green
green is beautiful. gotta give him the 6th as well.
Green is on it tonight
Dare we hope....?
How does Boone do it? Time after time, he brings in the perfect pitcher at the perfect time.
i like good Green
That was the best 1/2 inning on months! 4 more just like it!
 How on earth do you know that someone is going to mention an Edie Brickell song at comment 199???
You are as prescient as Aaron Boone!
i'll take any of these players green. even the ones getting the minimum amount of green.
 they don't call me nostra for no reason.
We need good Judge. Last couple of games though...
i just finished composing a new rudimental snare solo. i hope to transcribe it tonight. it's in 6/8 and the tempo is dotter quarter note = 67. i took that as 6'7" and am naming the piece All Rise
 that is beautiful!
oh, fucking bollocks. god fucking dammit. FUCK
 thanks! : )
4 pitch walk. 1 pitch pop-up.
that was shite from hicks. Let's do this Gio
My son sent me a JANK song, and I thought it had awesome drumming.
It's called "Alligator".
crush the ball, g
 nice! he'd probably like the awesome song "alligatory crocodile" by the amazing trombone player Ray Anderson
Going out on a limb. Tampa will not end game with 1 run.
don't get hurt, dj. fuck
 i listened and it is indeed a cool song!
I always worry when Choi is up.
Green for 3?
Balls to center die in this place.
That’s the Green we were hoping for
I think I’d rather have Green go 3 than Britton/Chapman.
Britton and Chapman kind of worry me..
Asking for a crooked number again
dammit dammit dammit all to hell
Jesus Fucking Christ!
 nah. but let's get more runs regardless
I'd rather see Sanchez pitch in this game than Ottavino.
Gardner is en fuego
gritner on again! i really wish we could utilize his jets.
I love Gardy
Manufacture a run! For the love of Mo!
Happy Gleyber Day!!!!!!
First pitch swinging!!
Would you be, could you be my Gleyber?
Western TATER Supply Company! Go Go Gleyber!
now THAT'S a *great* Gleyber!
That's better than  manufacturing!
[172) OMG i love that!
i need my Gio to come back
i approve of that rally killer
c'mon higgy - do it for eddie van halen!
Why not Gary here? Higgy is catching tomorrow.
If he’s ok, Green should be a no-brainer for the 7th. If all goes well, don’t overuse B/C tonite.
 I wonder if we'll see Gary again this series. Hard to argue. He's been so bad.
i'll take it. wish it would've gone past that diving assfuck.
Rally Killer, RIYank! We'll take it!
 i agree.
can't bring in gary before britton...
. True Britton and Chapman do bounce some some.
I disagree with this move.
No walks no walks no walks no walks.
Nice K but I woulda rode Green a little deeper.
 Boone is never wrong.
Can't use Gary with Britton..
 except when he hurts himself playing basketball
beautiful and efficient.
More Britton, please. Only 14 pitches.
 Relax, dumbass
Britton to start 8th. Chapman ready to roll. Make it so. And score at least 3 more. Then maybe zero can pitch. Not.
Still looking for a crooked number!!!
Genius. Absolute genius.
How does he do it?? How does he know???
dear pinstripers: score more fucking runs. this frame.
 because baseball is predictable.
that sucked balls.
They got runs?! Woo-hoo. I won't get to see the end. I will be thinking good thoughts.
Magellan Margot in RF
Time for your HR, G.
damn, he hits the ball HARD!
please plate him.
crap. ok, more Great Britton please!
Did they take Luke out?
 They did.
Shoulda left him in. He was filthy
sweet! is zack mad?
oh, i see. i'd be too. why take him out? save him for tomorrow?
why get chappy hot only to have to sit in the dugout?
should've kept him in...
Interesting, I would have stuck with Britton.
Chapman ain’t no Mo
my best one yet and ... nothing. : (
 Mo has disgusted me so much off the field, that i can't even reference him any longer and i took his t-shirt out of my drawer. I'll certainly *never* wear it again... : (
Being too cute again. I don't get it. Oh, well. Long Live Zach! Go get ' em, Chapman!
Huh, okay, I'll buy that. Chappy for four.
 I was just catching up. Patience nostralarmus.
 Yeah, well, Chapman isn't exactly a saint off the field.
 Britton was dominant. Confuses me. Now Chapman could end up throwing a lot more pitches. Hopefully not.
Oh, yeah, 'great britton' is good! I was trying to think of some 'rule britannia' thing but I whiffed.
This better work because you just short-leashed two wicked sharp pitchers to stretch your closer. Just sayin’.
 Agreed. It is out of my rotation. Still wear Bernie, Mattingly, Jeter. I also don't like wearing my Favre shirt.
(217). Agreed but Mickey was a heavy drinker and that didn’t stop me from idolizing him while he was playing and forever since.
Should have left Zack in
(217) (229). I can send you one of my Fuck Trump t’s
 the whole Mo thing is an example of why i'm super hesitant to buy player jerseys. Rather than neutral ones.
DO. NOT. WALK. HIM.
fucking hell. definitely should've continued with zacH/K
Half the times these days I worry the player I stanned is gonna be a rapist. Then no way.
Of course.Here Here comes the 2 run job.
Oh, *this* Chapman. Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit (insert vice here).
 i could NEVER wear something with that name on it. i can't even use that word anymore, like '____ card'
oh, chappy just wanted to face his countryman. i see.
an extra long stand on the mound for his stare. it was his plan all along!
Word to Big Bird. Still a risky ads move imo.
Always like it when we get past Arozarena without any damage.
Last chance for a crooked number!!!!
 correct. i don't own his t-shirt, nor do i reference him in a metaphor type of situation.
 thanks! it was totally unplanned. i was typing 'good britton' and thought: holy shit!
 What about _______et??? What do you call them now?
What should I do about my Shockey, Bradshaw, Cruz, Tuck, Pierre-Paul and Beckham Jr. jerseys?
i think i'd wear a Gio shirt though! : )
 i'm doing too many things at once to figure it out! drummer brain... : ~
it's still gleyber day. do it again, kid!
I adore Joe Morelo’s sublime drum solo on Take Five.
 oh, my - YES!!! Morello is a hero to me. I have a tribute solo to him called Dreamscape and posted the video on my Facebook a couple of months ago.
another SB for Gleyber!
That strike was lower than Tanaka's screw 3-2 screw job.
can't foul that off. 92 down the middle
suuuuuuch an amazing hitter.
 We play a lot of games and every trick taking game is a struggle now
Tomorrow Cole gets the chance to take a giant first step on the way to the sacred Yankee Pantheon
judge is off. should've pulled that ball and crushed it
Whoops, a little premature
 not just yet...
make. them. pay!
motherfucker. soooo close.
chappy's night would've been done.
3. more. outs. please get them quick-like.
Shoulda coulda..... guess that Chappie has another inning
Just pour it in there. No cutesie.
Oh, added a run. I had to walk the terrorists one last time.
get it quick and keep that pitch count low.
also: fuck the trash'tros
 Walk the terrorists. Was that a GoGos song?
 Dunno. These are Jack Russells who believe every creature not a humanis an existential threat. Don’t know their backstory.
stop trying for the K. just get the damn out quick
now his pitch count is in the 20s
dodgers just scored 3 and are now leading 4-2
Cole better man up tomorrow.
23rd pitch coming. end the game, chapman
I smell a Friday night coming. Can we all meet up at Cone's house? Hell yeah!
I reiterate what I posted prematurely
Three! The yankeeeeeees win!
 seriously i am game for Cone's house.
Nice. On to game 5. Night all.
 oh man, that'd RULE!
Boone had the magic touch today. Hopefully for one more day.
Saturday morning sports ahoy! Game 5 clincher and possible clincher for the Lakers in the NBA Finals!
Solid. Need to ride the momentum and capitalize early tomorrow
Tonight’s game is for you, Whitey.
RIP Chairman of the board. One of my childhood heroes along with the Mick and Yogi.
Butterflies are starting. That’s a really good feeling.
Just caught up to my DVR. Time for a crooked number!!!!
