We got Hicks and Higgy in the line-up today, in addition to two rooks (no pressure, guys) and Josh "Please Make It Stop" Donaldson.

This ain't what we signed up for.

2 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 4, 2022 10:49 am

[0]Great headline, Alex. You always hit the mark with cultural flare.

3 Shaun P.   ~  Sep 4, 2022 12:07 pm

I liked this team earlier this year but now, if it wasn't for Judge and the chase for 62, I don't think I would watch.

I am definitely upset about the disastrous trade of Montgomery, and I have spent most of the last 3 weeks thinking that somehow they killed themselves by trading Gallo. I know, I know - but away from the Stadium he had a 132 OPS+! Someone besides Judge who could hit and get on base regularly would be a big help right now.

[2] Couldn't agree more on so many levels.

4 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 4, 2022 12:55 pm

I'm thinking the rookie would have made that play if he was at ss.

5 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 4, 2022 1:03 pm

[3] My pet theory is Gallo was the quiet, chill, stoner dude that kept everyone calm. Sure he sucked on the field but he took the pressure off everyone else. / $0.02.

6 rob_smith_51   ~  Sep 4, 2022 1:21 pm

[5]. Interesting the guy that was terrible was the guy that made this offensive engine work. Maybe they thought, at least I am not as bad as Gallo and relaxed.

7 rbj   ~  Sep 4, 2022 3:11 pm

So it’s basically Judge and that’s about it for the offense. Reminds me of 2000 when the Yankees built up such a lead that they had fouls to give and used them all up.

8 rbj   ~  Sep 4, 2022 4:18 pm


9 mhoward120   ~  Sep 4, 2022 4:19 pm

Best ump call of the season. A little payback for Judge.

10 rbj   ~  Sep 4, 2022 4:52 pm

Wrist surgery foe Benintendi. I’m assuming he’s done for the season.

11 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 5, 2022 12:23 pm

Douche Donaldson Cadillacs himself into an out.

12 mhoward120   ~  Sep 5, 2022 12:23 pm

What a freakin lame-ass Donaldson in. Capable of turning chicken salad into chicken shit.

13 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2022 12:24 pm

Jesus, Donaldson is a disaster.
Even when he gets an RBI he does something stupid.

14 mhoward120   ~  Sep 5, 2022 12:25 pm

I guess Donaldson loves being the consummate asshole.

15 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2022 12:26 pm

[11] [12] We all posted the same kind of message. Hilarious.

16 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 5, 2022 12:46 pm

Seriously? Dropping routine throws from short. Oi.

17 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2022 1:55 pm

Well this is stupid. I’m in eastern VA., so maybe yesterday MLBN would show the Yankees Rays game. Nope, Red Sawx. Today, you’d figure the O’s game would be blacked out, because cable provides me with MASN. Nope, once again it doesn’t show the Yankees game, instead I get the Orioles.


18 mhoward120   ~  Sep 5, 2022 2:03 pm

Fuck, I'd have to say that Judge is pretty fucking good

19 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 5, 2022 2:04 pm


20 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 5, 2022 2:06 pm

I feel like we might've just seen Stanton's last swing of 2022.

21 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2022 9:50 pm

[20] We essential got one nice dance with Stanton before he left the party. Cock tease.

22 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 6, 2022 5:15 am

Watching the game now, Kay was giving it pretty hard to Donaldson too. He seems fed up with the guy and most the team now. I’m looking forward to Gary’s tater (and Judge’s of course!)

23 rbj   ~  Sep 6, 2022 2:51 pm

Rained out already

24 knuckles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 2:22 pm

Gave up two in the first and now we’re going to get URP’d for the day game.

25 mhoward120   ~  Sep 7, 2022 2:24 pm

Why isn't the game on YES right now?

26 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 3:02 pm

[25] Just looked at the lineup for the first time. Perhaps the YES producers are confused and think this is an exhibition game. Nice of Boone to keep Judge in the lineup to get him some swings and keep him loose.

27 rbj   ~  Sep 7, 2022 3:07 pm

55 for Judge!

28 mhoward120   ~  Sep 7, 2022 3:14 pm

To quote Marcellus Wallace upon seeing Butch at the traffic light, "Motherfucker"

29 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 4:37 pm

Whelp, I survived my 24th 1st day of school as a teacher. I forgot there was a game on today. Only took 10 minutes to find it on Amazon. Grrr.....

30 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 4:46 pm

Uh. The goal is to stay on the bag.

31 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 4:59 pm

Brutal send. Yikes.

32 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:09 pm

Everyone saw the balk but the 4 blind mice.

33 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:31 pm

Don't fucking bunt Gleyber. Egads.

34 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:33 pm

They could try 2 squeezes in a row.

35 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:37 pm

What the fuck is that clown doing. Holy shite, dude!

36 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:39 pm

Guzman 0 for 5. 4 strikeouts and a bases loaded double play where you half-ass it to 1st. Yanks deserve to lose this one.

37 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:42 pm

⬆️ I’m sure Boone ‘likes the compete’ though :/

38 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:51 pm

This would be a rough one. Screwed by the non-balk in the ninth, screwed themselves with bases loaded and none out in the tenth.

39 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:52 pm

Hey, Ara. My 32nd first day was last week. 95 degrees in my classroom today. Good times!

40 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 7, 2022 5:58 pm

Max respect to all teachers, Ara & Hank!! You deserve way more pay and budgets!!
Is The rookie Guzman’s day one of the worst debuts ever?

41 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 6:00 pm

Cheers, Hank. Here's to a good year. May your fall and winter be cool.

42 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 6:05 pm

A crew chief review? Did that exist before today? Do the ump's lose their challenges now?

43 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 6:08 pm

This game is an absolute shit show of bizarre plays.

44 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 6:12 pm

I don't want to win. You win. I don't want to win. You win.......

45 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 7, 2022 6:12 pm

I had faith! It’s the Twins after all

46 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 6:13 pm


47 rbj   ~  Sep 7, 2022 6:15 pm

Phew, a win.

48 BobbyB   ~  Sep 7, 2022 7:13 pm

Judge has hit a HR in 4 straight games.
Let’s just say that makes a guy like me believe I could manage a baseball team better than a couple of managers who are already in the bigs.

49 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:20 pm

⬆️Wasn’t it Sparky Anderson who said ‘Of course I’m a great manager. Look how neatly I write in Rose,Morgan,Bench,Perez in the lineup card.’

50 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:25 pm

I just won a kajillion dollar bet. lol.....

51 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:25 pm


52 rbj   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:26 pm

Holy Falafal!

53 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:27 pm

I’d be happy to keep IKF at third and leave Donaldson at home.

54 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:29 pm

Shit call.

55 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:29 pm

[53] Agreed.

56 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:29 pm

⬆️Yep, huge congrats to Donaldson for becoming a parent but we’re all good if he doesn’t return!

57 knuckles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:30 pm

Reverse this, and get Judge to the plate this inning. Hang a crooked number on them and breathe for a minute.

58 knuckles   ~  Sep 7, 2022 8:34 pm

Or not. The old Hicks-Boson super non-collider.

59 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 7, 2022 9:20 pm

I have not seen Luetge have a single outing this year when he didn't walk a lefty or do anything good.

60 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 8, 2022 3:47 pm

You hit a grand slam, you get to hit cleanup the next day. Should be a rule.

61 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 7:07 pm

Miggy Four-Bags!

62 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 7:10 pm

Kay is talking about Gary's passed-ball problems and right on cue Higgy lets one go by.


63 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 8:10 pm

Derek Jeter Day would actually mean something if he was replacing Cashman.

64 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 8:11 pm

Griffin Jax is a great name for any athlete, although it probably wasn't good for him during his schoolboy days.

65 rob_smith_51   ~  Sep 8, 2022 8:16 pm

[60]. Apparently they should use him to protect Judge.

66 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 8, 2022 8:23 pm

Kay is such a fucking asshole. "That's kind of a hard one to miss." He who screams, "If it's fair it's gone!" when it's 150 feet foul.

67 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 8, 2022 8:33 pm

Another pitcher I don't want to see in October. Ugh.

68 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 8, 2022 8:54 pm

That looks familiar.

69 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:03 pm


70 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:09 pm

Some day this game's gonna end.

71 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:20 pm

I'm calling it. Hick's grounds into a double play.

72 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:26 pm

I love being wrong.

73 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:26 pm

Hicks tries to bunt that eye high bullshit and then has the audacity to not stay at first on his double.

74 Shaun P.   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:28 pm

Cowards!!!!! I mean I don't blame the Twins but UGH.

75 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:28 pm

Just in time for some excitement. C’mon Gleyber!
Shame Judge losing all these ABs though

76 Shaun P.   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:29 pm

And that should have been ball four ...

77 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:31 pm

Losing to the twins is unacceptable.

78 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:31 pm


79 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:32 pm

Nice win for the umpires. Hope they’re proud.

80 Shaun P.   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:32 pm

That sucks. Another 1 run loss. Sigh.

81 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 8, 2022 9:49 pm

[79] Gleyber's AB would have been an ideal time for Boonie to go apeshit, maybe change the rhythm of the game. [sigh]

82 Springdeeds   ~  Sep 9, 2022 11:25 am

This is my least favorite Yankee team in recent memory, the whole season has been confusing and disorienting. Their record is still good, probably better than I would've expected going into the season. Aaron Judge continues to amaze. But I never want to watch them! Montgomery was one of the few pitchers I enjoyed watching (Cole, while good, isn't what he was chalked up to be, and whines too much, Taillon is a snoozefest, etc.) I have hope for Montas. The lineup is just rough to watch every night, I turn the game on and find myself genuinely bummed out, wanting to do other things. The YES broadcast has become borderline unwatchable (or unlistenable, really-- I usually mute it and have music going). Sorry for the negativity, maybe I just need the intensity of playoff baseball and am picking up on some September doldrums. Anyway, lets go Yankees!

83 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 9, 2022 5:56 pm

I love it so much when the old band gets back together!

84 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 9, 2022 5:56 pm


85 rbj   ~  Sep 9, 2022 6:16 pm

I hate bigger bases and the shift ban.

86 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 9, 2022 6:31 pm

I watched a 5 minute clip on Twitter. Amazing bunch. They all look good still.

87 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:03 pm

It’s no one’s fault, but it’s amazing that with a four and a half game lead on September 9, this is the lineup the Yankees are running out. I had hoped we’d at least see Stanton tonight. I know he still isn’t right, but at least he’s someone that could run into one. When 2–3-4 is the lowest OPS in baseball followed by Hicks and IKF, that tells you all you need to know. If I were Kevin Cash I’d just walk Judge every time up for the entire series. So what if he’s on base fifteen times? How often would he actually score?

88 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:12 pm

[86] They really do!

89 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:14 pm

[82] I've been feeling pretty much exactly the same.

90 BobbyB   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:21 pm

[87] Stanton needs to be in the lineup even if he’s not right yet. They’ll be no postseason run unless he’s hitting. His timing is off but unless he’s in the lineup, he can’t really fix it.

91 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:31 pm

So I’m watching the Rays broadcast, and they’re insufferable. If you didn’t know whom they were talking about, you’d think all nine guys in the Tampa lineup were either heading to Cooperstown or to the All-Effort Hall of Fame. They’re rightfully excited that the Rays have made up all this ground, but there’s been no mention of the fact that it has nothing whatsoever to do with the Rays. If the Yankees had even been mediocre in July and August they’d have a ten-game lead. But that doesn’t fit the narrative.

92 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:41 pm

If they call this a fielders choice…

93 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:42 pm

The Rays announcers were certain it would be a fielder’s choice, apparently unaware that the runner might go back to first if the batter is called out. “I don’t get that at all!”

94 knuckles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:50 pm

I’ve got the tennis on the TV and baseball on the iPad tonight until/unless someone convinces me otherwise.

2022 Captain would probably be a net positive down the stretch given the roster these days. Hold off mounting that plaque and put him in pinstripes for a coupla weeks.

95 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 7:58 pm

What the actual fuck is Hicks doing out there?????

96 knuckles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 8:00 pm

Just bench him and trade him for anything this off-season. Completely lost the plot.

97 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 8:00 pm

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a player get booed like this while in the field. The Aaron Hicks experiment is over.

98 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 8:05 pm

Hicks has butchered things, but Montas has to take some blame. The two-out walk, the two-strike hit, the laser that drove in the fourth run. (I don’t think Hicks had a shot it, but the optics were awful after he Knoblached the previous play.) Hard to imagine this lineup scoring four runs.

99 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 8:17 pm

Hicks is out.

100 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 8:21 pm

Here’s another stat I wasn’t aware of. Yankees have the second most errors in the league since the break. Remember how much better they were in the first half? This has truly been a perfect storm, and in a way that gives me hope. ALL of this can’t stay this bad for three more weeks. And the reality is the Yankees only need to win one of these games. Two would be nice. But a win gives them the season series over the Rays and essentially an extra game.

101 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 8:37 pm

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Donaldson needs to get back to New York. This lineup is in sore need of major league hitters.

102 knuckles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 8:52 pm

How said is it that for a team that was on 115 win pace, all I want is to win the division and DGAF if they crash out in the ALDS just so as not to have an all time regular season choke on their books to go along with 2004?

103 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 9, 2022 10:21 pm

⬆️ I’ve been having similar thoughts. It’s stunning.

104 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 10, 2022 10:25 am

I didn't see last night's game. Just checked out Twitter for the lowlights. Hix and and his shitty defense led to 3 runs! OMG. Do that during jv tryouts and and your cut. Fucking bollocks.

105 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:18 pm

It least it looks closer to a major league lineup today. I know I've said this before, and I know it's obvious, but I still think Stanton is the key. The second he puts one in the seats, I think the team will relax a bit, and I think teams will be forced to at least *think* about pitching to Judge.

106 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:24 pm

Really curious to know the last time the Yankees started a game with three straight base hits. I like it!

107 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:25 pm

Excuse me. Four. I also like that.

108 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:26 pm

So close to four nothing...

109 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:28 pm

Five straight hits to start the game. Not sure where this team came from.

110 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:30 pm


111 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:30 pm

Is this real life?

112 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:31 pm


113 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:31 pm

Didn't know the Rays were using an opener today. Huh.

114 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:32 pm

Oh, and here's the genius of Aaron Boone -- by batting Judge leadoff, he's going to come up again in the first inning.

115 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:34 pm

Wow. Were it not for a great play that would've been eight. But it's 5-0, so not much to complain about. I still like it. Ninth batter coming to the plate, Judge on deck.

116 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:38 pm

And the hits just keep on comin'...
Two outs for Kluber, 6-0 Yankees, 25 more outs (hopefully 22) for the Rays' pitching staff. Good for today, good for tomorrow.

117 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 12:52 pm

ESPN tells me that the last time the Yankees opened a game with seven straight hits was in 1990.

118 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 2:00 pm

Here's fun stat, courtesy of YES. (An actual fun stat.)

Judge has reached base three or more times in seven straight games. The last Yankee to do that was Mickey Mantle in his triple crown season of 1956.

119 rob_smith_51   ~  Sep 10, 2022 2:01 pm

[117] In that game the 1st and 7th hits were HRs with 5 singles in between.

120 rob_smith_51   ~  Sep 10, 2022 2:06 pm

Any thoughts on the new rules? The only rule I feel strongly about is that they should go to robot umps.

The shift rule seems like it would lead to more players pulling the ball, but I guess it also may impact how they are pitched. It seems like it would benefit dead pull hitters, but who knows?

121 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 2:53 pm

I think the shift rule is a shame. Managers should be able to play their fielders anywhere they want. I know they want more offense, but I don't think legislating it is the right way to go. You know what else would create more offense? Allowing just one outfielder. Imagine the excitment!

The real head scratcher, though, is the larger bases. I mean, who even came up with that idea?

122 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 10, 2022 3:07 pm

So here's a controversial opinion. Baseball writers love to talk about the loss column because "that's all that really matters." In the case of the Yankees and Rays, I'd argue that the win column means more.

Yankees 84-56
Rays 78-59

Let's imagine that it's a 145-game season. The Yankees have played three more games, so at a certain point the Rays have make up wins. Even if the Yankees were to lose their final five games in this scenario, the Rays would have to finish 6-2. I'd like the Yankees' chances. Considering the Yankees now own the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Rays, the road becomes that much steeper for Tampa Bay.

I'm keeping my eye on the wins column. I'd rather have a win in the bank than be left hoping for the other team to be lose.

123 rob_smith_51   ~  Sep 10, 2022 5:30 pm

[122] You are probably right. If the Yanks win 11 of their remaining 22 (based on track record is doubtful) then the rays have to win 17 of 25 to tie and 18 to top them. Or they can only afford to lose 8 more games which I guess is the all important loss column.

124 rbj   ~  Sep 10, 2022 7:02 pm

Hmm, David Pinto is giving Judge an outside shot at the Triple Crown.

It’ll be very expensive, but at 30 y.o., only 8 years guaranteed. Maybe a couple of options.

125 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 11:56 am

[123] And as folks have been documenting, the Rays have the toughest schedule in the league the rest of the way, including six games with the Astros. A win today might even lock things up.

126 rob_smith_51   ~  Sep 11, 2022 1:34 pm

Any update on when/if this game will start? It looks like they are going to show it on MLB network.

127 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 2:09 pm

They're saying it'll start at 3:40 local time.

128 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 2:10 pm

In other news, I see that Harrison Bader started his rehab stint today. It wouldn't be bad to see Andújar/Florial in left, Bader in center, and Judge in right. And keep your fingers crossed for Benintendi come October.

129 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 2:47 pm

I'm only kind of watching the game without audio while some other work. I know it's a bullpen day, but has there been word as to why Germán isn't just getting a normal start?

130 rob_smith_51   ~  Sep 11, 2022 2:49 pm

[129]. I thought they said he had pitched 4 days ago > 90 pitches, but I may have misunderstood.

131 mhoward120   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:01 pm

Hey Hank, how’s it going with the jazz listening?

132 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:20 pm

I like these Yankees better than last week's Yankees.

133 mhoward120   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:21 pm

If Stanton is really back, I’m starting to feel optimistic again.

134 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:21 pm

[131] The jazz listening and writing has been a lot of fun. Here's today's installment. Stan Getz.

135 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:24 pm

I mean, if Stanton is back and Gleyber is fixed... That changes everything. Everything.

136 mhoward120   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:26 pm

(133). I don’t know whether you’re confining yourself to a particular genre, but I’d highly highly recommend Pharoah Sanders’ Karma

137 rbj   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:30 pm

Gleyber Day!

138 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:33 pm

[136] I'm confining myself to a particular collection, my father's records from the 50s and 60s.

139 rbj   ~  Sep 11, 2022 3:49 pm

Double digits already

140 RIYank   ~  Sep 11, 2022 4:46 pm

[137] Maybe it's Gleyber Month?

141 knuckles   ~  Sep 11, 2022 7:28 pm

Came back from a bike ride to find the Yanks had scored 7 and my wife got me Graceland on vinyl for our anniversary. Took the kids into DC today to mark 9/11. Pizza in the Ooni tonight. Amazing tennis final.

142 rbj   ~  Sep 13, 2022 6:04 pm

TBS game tonight.

143 rbj   ~  Sep 13, 2022 6:36 pm

Uh oh, didn’t retouch

This happens so often it can't be coincidence. My phone freezes during a Yankee at bat. I finally decide to reboot the phone and find there's been a homer or RBI hit.

So I missed Marwin's bomb.

Just in time to see Judge go Boom! 56!

149 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 13, 2022 7:50 pm

RIP to the great Godard, for any film fans here at the Banter. Rebel to the end.

150 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 7:52 pm

Pretty amazing. All Rise.

151 rbj   ~  Sep 13, 2022 7:57 pm

Looks like a small front moving through, maybe 15 minutes worth.

152 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:04 pm

[149]Yes. Got scolded at by the wife for mispronouncing his name and have been enjoying various clips on Twitter.

153 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:09 pm

Cole is determined to give this game to the Sox.

154 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:10 pm

I've been lucky to miss all of Cole's homers tonight. WT the ever loving F?!?!

155 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:13 pm

⬆️That Pesky Pole homer was a bit of a cheapie?

156 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:25 pm

Why does it seem that Luetge is pitching every game, is he the new EDSP?

157 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:36 pm

Heinz 57 coming up?

158 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:40 pm


159 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:40 pm

Hot Dog!

160 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:40 pm

He’s going to do it! He’s going to break 62!! Incredible, All Rise!!

161 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:41 pm

Just give him his $400 million now please!

162 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:42 pm

Anyone else tired of Kay saying "5 away from Roger Maris, 4 away from Roger Maris."

How about just enjoying Judge without worrying about records or comparing him to other players?

163 rbj   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:43 pm


[161] 8 years. $50 million per.

164 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:49 pm

[163] You're killing me. Hal ain't giving no 8-year contracts. Judge is 30 years old.

165 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 8:50 pm

I could see the Mets going for that.

166 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:01 pm

Cone has the audacity to compare Harry Styles to Springsteen? Dude.

167 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:05 pm

This will be a tough pill to swallow.

168 rbj   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:16 pm

[164] I’m not going beyond 8 years. Capture his celebrity and jersey sales years. Tigers went too far with Miggy, Angles with Pujols.

169 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:28 pm

Green light!

170 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:31 pm

Gleyber Time!

171 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:32 pm

Every day is Gleyber Day!

172 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:33 pm

I had to delete the comment I WAS typing. Lol...

173 rbj   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:37 pm

Miggy Jr.!

174 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:37 pm

Get it together, Clay.

175 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:38 pm

JFC! Hit the lead off man. Are you fucking kidding me?

176 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:39 pm

"Connor Wong" as a name cracks me up.
Sounds like a name from Hong Kong or Taiwan. I think I worked with an Abigail Chang once.

177 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:43 pm

Donna Chang: I'm sorry.
Estelle: Well, then...that changes everything!
George: What?!
Estelle: She's not Chinese, I was duped!
George: So what?! She still gave you great advice! What's the difference if she's not Chinese?!
Estelle: I'm not taking advice from some girl from Long Island!

178 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:46 pm

⬆️‘Not taking advice from some girl from Long Island’ is hysterical!

179 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:50 pm

Wow. That was harder than it shoulda been.

180 rbj   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:51 pm

Phew phew phew. I need another bourbon.

181 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:51 pm

Phew. Long live Judge.

182 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 13, 2022 9:51 pm

[177] Ha!

183 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 13, 2022 11:46 pm

And meanwhile the Rays and Jays are taking turns beating each other. It’s amazing how different things look compared to Friday night.
