Got a Fever of 103

torch

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!

Twinkies!

So maybe the Yanks’ll start winning again.

Nu?

Never mind the distractions:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Are We There Yet…

I mean, really? Cool, the Yanks beat up a bad Angels team and sure, they beat the always perturbingly difficult Detroit Tigers in game one of that series, but then Ace turned back into Dexter and got waxed for the last three games. Meanwhile, body parts are flying every which-a-way and guys are doing everything they can to avoid the DL.  Basically, it’s like they are supposed to be .500 regardless of how well or badly they do.

Well anyway, here is River Ave  Blues with tonight’s lineup:

CF Jacoby Ellsbury
LF Brett Gardner
2B Starlin Castro
3B Chase Headley
SS Didi Gregorius
RF Aaron Hicks
1B Ike Davis
C Austin Romine
RHP Ivan Nova

So, never mind the lukewarm lemonade, Let’s Go Yanks!

Feel the Heat

IMG_8219

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?

BagsEmpireState

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

IMG_7717

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!

Nu?

Spring Cleaning

What a fun win that was last night. Just when the Yanks were getting aced by an old junk-baller, too. McCann’s homer was tremendous (especially after hitting a homer foul the previous pitch) and Castro’s wasn’t half bad neither—mmm’ belly to belly, as John said.

And then Carlos with the game-winner.

Pretty cool, indeed.

Never mind the Halos:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Return to Sender

Worth the wait? Hardly. A rain delay helped foul up a late-inning appearance by Aroldis Chapman as the Orioles came from behind to beat the Yanks, 3-1.

Grrrr-rumble.

Tonight, the Yanks host the Angels remember when they used to be a nemesis? Not so much these days, huh?

Ah, never mind the sun rays:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

 

Hanging

Ah, a plump 7-0 lead, cool. Sure, some of those runs came because fortune was on the Yankees’ side—ground balls scooting by the infielders, blooper falling in front of outfielders—but I wasn’t complaining.

Then, Nova stalled and the O’s came charging back and cut the lead to 7-6 over the course of a half-inning.

Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman then made like the studs they are, shutting the O’s down in the 8th and 9th, Alex Rodriguez added an RBI single and the Yanks escaped with an 8-6 win.

Ol’ C.C. is on the hill this afternoon.

Never mind those storm clouds:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

 

Oodles of O’s

IMG_3601

More O’s.

Never mind the sunset:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Moving Right Along

Except of course the Yanks aren’t in Detroit this weekend but Baltimore. Right. No, seriously, I’m on top of it.

Lordy. Never mind the tardiness around here:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Shopping For Runs

So, yeah, that didn’t go too well, did it? The Yanks got trounced in Canada and now they’re in Detroit for the weekend. Elmore Country! (What was the Elmore novel where the bad guy came from Canada to Detroit? Killshot, that’s it.)

Let’s hope for better results.

Never mind the M*A*S*H unit:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Whadda Ya Say?

What about a win, fellas?

Why not, right?

Never mind nuthin’:

Inside Outski

IMG_8496

Man, yesterday’s game was a beaut. The Yanks got one-hit but still managed to win because that one hit was a two-run home run by Starlin Castro. Nathan Eovaldi was stingy, allowing a run over six innings and the Yanks Big Three did the voodoo that they do so well to end it.

Final Score: Yanks 2, Rays 1.

Tonight, the boys start a three-game series vs those nasty Jays.

Never mind the posturing:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Back at it again indoors in Tampa this afternoon.

Never mind the haze:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!
