Great seat spacing here in the ballpark. 6 seats per row and 2 rows fully roped off in front and behind.

2 rbj   ~  Apr 4, 2021 12:10 pm

Blessed Easter to those who observe.

How about a win, it would go well with leg of lamb.

3 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 4, 2021 12:23 pm

First pitch from German above knees deposited into the seats.

4 rbj   ~  Apr 4, 2021 12:25 pm

Sigh.

5 rbj   ~  Apr 4, 2021 12:29 pm

Yuck

6 rbj   ~  Apr 4, 2021 12:56 pm

Easter dinner is about to start, a welcome distraction from this shitshow.

7 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 4, 2021 12:56 pm

Fucking bollocks! Can Gleyber and Bruce both get errors? This is the Big Leagues!

8 rbj   ~  Apr 4, 2021 2:27 pm

‘Twas a fine meal.

9 rbj   ~  Apr 4, 2021 2:46 pm

Hmm, swap King and German?

10 seamus   ~  Apr 4, 2021 2:48 pm

[1] are there walking vendors? A lot more walking to find customers.

11 seamus   ~  Apr 4, 2021 2:49 pm

Happy Easter/Passover all! I'll be watching a lot of baseball since i'm disabled these days. though we didn't watch live today. Still in the 6th...

12 seamus   ~  Apr 4, 2021 3:34 pm

disappointing offense so far. Slow start anyhow.

13 mhoward120   ~  Apr 5, 2021 8:23 am

(10) No walking vendors. Order from your phone in Section 224. Not sure about other sections. It was a beautiful day otherwise.

14 seamus   ~  Apr 5, 2021 4:09 pm

[13] oh order from phone is smart. Thanks.

15 rbj   ~  Apr 5, 2021 5:27 pm

Yeah, I’ve got Apple Pay set up. No touch is nice.

16 mhoward120   ~  Apr 5, 2021 5:42 pm

And now, depending on where you sit, you have a real shot at getting a ball hit into the stands. Lots of super-ball like bounces too.

17 rbj   ~  Apr 5, 2021 6:35 pm

All rise!

18 rbj   ~  Apr 5, 2021 7:08 pm

That walk is acceptable.

19 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 5, 2021 7:09 pm

Howdy, all. Ball 5 to Hicks. 2-0.

20 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 5, 2021 7:09 pm

RALLY KILLER!

21 rbj   ~  Apr 5, 2021 7:10 pm

As is that Stanton salami

22 rbj   ~  Apr 5, 2021 7:36 pm

RISP hits!

23 rbj   ~  Apr 5, 2021 7:41 pm

Rats, no double digits.

24 rbj   ~  Apr 5, 2021 8:02 pm

Monty looked good though.

25 mhoward120   ~  Apr 5, 2021 8:08 pm

For the first time I’m really starting to appreciate the idea that the regular season is essentially a fine tune-up the post-season.

26 mhoward120   ~  Apr 5, 2021 8:33 pm

Anyone watching Baylor put a whipping on Gonzaga?

27 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:32 am

[26] Yeah, I did. I was really surprised -- I thought Gonzaga would win. But probably that was not rational of me, considering how much trouble the Zags had with a relatively weak UCLA team in the semis, compared to how easily Baylor took care of Houston.

Giancarlo Salami sounds like a great sandwich!

28 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 6:08 pm

So the Thairo Estrada Experience is over. Probably.

29 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 6, 2021 6:18 pm

Bruce with the NYS Special! 1-0, Cole can cruise now. Glad there are finally some night games I can watch live here in 日本

30 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 6:19 pm

Bruuuuuce!

31 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 6, 2021 6:49 pm

Cole looking very nasty tonight..

32 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:11 pm

That was not a good way to score a run.

33 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:12 pm

Okay, that is acceptable!

34 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:16 pm

[33] That too! Howdy RI, rbj, Seamus, mHoward and everyone else! Hope you are all safe and healthy

35 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:17 pm

[34] Howdy!
Dude, I got my second shot today. I am doing *great*.

36 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:19 pm

[35] Good to hear! Nice to see things are settling down now in the US after years of chaos :)

37 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:22 pm

[34] doing fine, have to sign up for the vaccine. I’ve got asthma so I’m a priority now.

38 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:24 pm

Dang, double digit Ks for Cole already.

39 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:24 pm

[36] Yeah, things are on the upswing on a number of fronts.

Damn, Cole is just brilliant this evening. 10 K in 5 IP, wow.

40 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:37 pm

Now an even dozen.

41 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:39 pm

12 K in 6 IP.
Guidryesque. :)

42 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:41 pm

[37] Good luck, hope it's not a long wait.
Love to see Cole throw a CG but I guess that's just not the way anymore..

43 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:47 pm

[42] Thanks, have to sign up. Parents already had both shots, just a sore arm for mom.

44 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:52 pm

Wow. Very, very impressive evening for our ace.

45 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 7:52 pm

[42] Yeah, esp early in the season -- I think that's it for him tonight.

46 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:00 pm

Yeah, I’d save Cole’s bullets for October.

47 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:01 pm

Nice

48 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:03 pm

Yum.
Giancarlo whack, Brett speed.

49 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:04 pm

BTW, anyone see the hideous new Shit Sawx uniforms? Yellow and blue. Apparently MLB is trying for more money, teaming up with a company to redo every team’s uniform, as an alternate by 2023.

Even the Yankees. God awful.

50 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:07 pm

Darn. Well, good rip anyway.

51 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:10 pm

[49] Oh yeah, kinda mustard yellow and powder blue. Seriously ugly. But, whatevs, if they make extra bucks off ugly uniforms... maybe they won't have to charge me so much for a hot dog?

I know, I'm dreaming.

52 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:19 pm

All rise

53 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:21 pm

Ahhhhhhhh.

BASEBALL IS BACK BOYS!

54 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:31 pm

Hmph.

55 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:32 pm

Ummmmmm.
I'm not sure. Cone is, I'm not.

56 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:33 pm

That's about a bad a call as you can have. Kay gets busted for saying Gleyber didn't lollygag. Ha.

57 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:36 pm

A costly umping error.
Although, not really.

58 RIYank   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:39 pm

GG.

59 rbj   ~  Apr 6, 2021 8:45 pm

[51] thanks for the laugh.

Good win.

60 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Apr 7, 2021 11:35 am

Just happy that BB is back.I'm fully vaxxed, but waiting a bit before I go to a game. Was thinking about Baltimore (I'm in MD) but decided I want to see how the limits work out. From what I could see on TV, lots of folks w/o masks. And of course the Yard was mostly Yankee fans.

61 rbj   ~  Apr 7, 2021 5:35 pm

Sigh, “soreness” for Judge.

62 rbj   ~  Apr 7, 2021 6:31 pm

RISP hit!

63 rbj   ~  Apr 7, 2021 6:42 pm

That sucks

64 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 7, 2021 7:26 pm

[61] Judge such a wonderful player but that body..not meant for baseball movements?

65 rbj   ~  Apr 7, 2021 7:41 pm

[64] that’s what I’m thinking.

66 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 7, 2021 8:56 pm

Gleyber is not a reliable SS.

67 mhoward120   ~  Apr 7, 2021 8:57 pm

What the fuck is wrong with Gleyber?

68 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:07 pm

Kay is such a douche.

69 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:08 pm

東岡! Saved Gleyber's bacon :)

70 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:11 pm

[68] Hi Ara! Don't disagree, but what did he say this time you noticed?
I like him and Cone together, the three man booth is too much.

71 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:21 pm

The ol' dog walk leads to a hot mess I see. Ugh.

72 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:24 pm

Hey Mr.OkJT. Kay said "that'll tie the game" the moment Higashioka hit it to right. Nevermind it was a rocket one hopper to right and a super close play at home. Just stupid imo. lol...

73 rob_smith_51   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:29 pm

Kay seemed to catch himself after he said it. "We'll see"

74 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:31 pm

I was intrigues by the 'man on second' idea at first but after a couple games..nah, it sucks. Stupid gimmick. Just have the pitchers and batters speed up game play, that's enough.

75 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 7, 2021 9:33 pm

Chalk that up to a Fucking annoying loss. Gleyber is not a major League SS.

76 yankintexas   ~  Apr 8, 2021 12:30 am

This team just screams half ass. How does Gary Sanchez repeatedly get away with 50% effort? How can you miss a game due to a sore side? Is Jusge made of jello? I wish I could get upset with Gleyber too, but at least he seems to stay healthy and has at least some desire to play baseball

77 rob_smith_51   ~  Apr 8, 2021 8:06 am

Why are they ever batting Gardner 3rd? What the heck is that about? He should be batting 7-9 when he starts and Frazier should be in top 5.

78 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 2:11 pm

Sigh, no Judge. I'm guessing ASG

79 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 2:35 pm

Ugh, shitty defense.

80 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 2:37 pm

And the Rays make them pay.

81 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 2:48 pm

Thank you Stanton.

82 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 2:50 pm

Hicks!

83 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 2:56 pm

Can't give Gleyber an error there.

84 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 3:17 pm

Le sigh

85 rbj   ~  Apr 9, 2021 3:36 pm

Crap
