Chug a Lug


No fun last night, let’s hope tonight be better.

Never mind the humidity:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!




Uh ass whopping, that’s what it was. Nice blowout for the Yanks last night in Chicago—20 hit-9-run shutout.

Tonight gives Big Mike the Big Question Mark.

Give it to ‘em, Big Fella.

Never mind the heat index:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Hotter Than July


Tanaka Time in Chicago.

Never mind the heat index:

Lets’s Go Yank-ees!

Happy 4th of July


Tough weekend in San Diego was salvaged with a win yesterday—highlighted by some nice memories for Mark Teixeira.

Yanks in Chicago to face the White Sox this afternoon.

Happy 4th!

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Hot Town Summer in the City


Well, that was a ton of fun last night, right? A big come-from-behind win. Homers in the 9th, John Sterling extra excitable. And why not? There might not be many of these this season. For one night, our guys gave us a reason to smile—9 to 7 was the final. Then, this afternoon,  another walk-off—on a passed ball of all things—and more funski with a 2-1, win. Pineda was great and the Big Three were tough, tough, tough.

Bombers head out to…San Deigo tonight…because baseball is weird. Okay, so the Padres. Whatever.

Never mind the sunshine:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!


Hang In There


Well, that didn’t work. C.C. didn’t deserve the result, he was a pro.

Yanks try to avoid the sweep tonight. Tanaka Time.

Never mind the late night airplane ride:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Don’t Get Mad


Kick somebody in the ass instead.

In this case maybe how about the Rangers.

Never mind the hangover:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Joe Girardi in the Rain

Aroldis Chapman did not throw strikes to the first hitter he faced in the top of the 9th inning last night. He walked him with the Yanks ahead by a run. Why? Well, because it was raining cats and dogs, right? Sure enough it had been raining steadily for over an hour but now the rain intensified and the Yankees’ stud closer could not land properly or get a grip on the ball or something.

Joe Girardi came out to talk to the umpires. The men in blue huddled together, made a signal, and out came the tarp.

Off I went to sleep only to read the comic details this morning.

Had a feeling it was going to go down like that.

Final Score: Rangers 9, Yanks 6.

Sell High

Orang BMW Bags

Well, say what you want about this team—and there isn’t all that much to say—at least those three guys in the bullpen are tough, tough, tough. They nailed down a 2-1 win yesterday and that’s how it rolls for the Bombers this year. I don’t know about you, but I hope the Yanks move all the pieces they can—Miller, Beltran, Chapman—if they get the chance. Sell high, you guys.

More this afternoon. Hot, hot, hot in the Bronx. Yanks looking to Nathan Eovaldi to pitch deep into the game.

Never mind the cold compress:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Got a Fever of 103


It’s a good number for me—I lived on 103rd Street when I was little—and it’s a good on the radar gun, especially when Mr. Chapman is on the hill. The dude was throwing vapor last night as the Yanks beat the Twins, 5-3.

Ridiculously beautiful day here in the Bronx. Nice afternoon for some ball.

Never mind the suntan lotion:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

It’s All Right


Hey you guys. Sorry I haven’t been around. Busy, busy and will catch you up with links shortly and more of a Hi-Howarya. Really nice comeback win the other day, right?

In the meantime, it’s summerishly lovely in New York as the Yanks host the Twinkies.

Never mind the distractions:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!



Up Around The Bend


Yanks host the…Rockies…because Interleague makes life better? I dunno, I can’t figure why they’re playing the Rockies but there you have it.

Never mind the humidity:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Sunday Smile


The Yanks scored seven runs in the final three innings yesterday, survived a shaky performance by Aroldis Chapman and hung on for a 7-6 win.

Happy Father’s Day to you all.

Never mind the neckties:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Now, You’re Talking


Yanks Smash, we smile. Love that Tanaka, too.

This afternoon, more:

Never mind the sunshine:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Didi, C.C., and The Big Three

Didi G

Super nice win last night, thank you Didi. Also, is C.C. having a lovely year so far or what? So pleased for him.

So maybe the Yanks’ll start winning again.


Never mind the distractions:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Feel the Heat


Yeah, okay, so it wasn’t gonna last. Yanks took it on the chin last night but they’ll be back out there in the heat this afternoon.

Never mind the bomb pops:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Encore Une Fois?


No real first baseman aside the Yanks have a damn good week. How about some more?

Never mind the return of summer (i.e. humidity):

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Good as it Gets


This weather, that is. High seventies, low eighties, breezy, not too humid. It’s been unbelievable in New York this week. Today was the best yet.

Yanks are on a little roll and that’s been fun.

Let’s hope for more tonightski.

Never mind nuthin’:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Dag, I Say, Dag, Son


Man, the Yanks have put a beatin’ on the Angels, huh?

Last night was dumb fun!
