Hump Day in Houston


Yanks finish up their 3-game series in Houston tonight looking for a sweep. Hey, stranger things have happened:

Never mind the brisket:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Onward, Ha!


Sorry about the locked-comments on the previous post and the lateness of this game thread.

Never mind the tardiness:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

We’re Havin’ a Heat Wave


So I was at the game on Friday night. Malcolm Gladwell threw out the first pitch and he would have made Dave LaRoche proud. It was an exciting game—sloppy, especially for the Giants, but exciting. Ton of Giants fans there—and yesterday afternoon, and today too, I’m sure—and it was nice to see them exit quietly. Yanks won a close one on Friday, lost a close one in extras yesterday.

Still hotter n July.

Never mind the out-of-towners:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Say Hey


It’s the Giants, and good gosh, Bumgarner’s pitching tonight.

Hotter than July in here in the city.

Never mind the heat wave:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

This, That, and the Third


Last night gave a 5-0 win. What’s with our boys? Showing a little fight, eh? (Let’s just hope it doesn’t make management daffy in the head.)

The final game against the O’s is this afternoon—nice, hot summer day in New York.

Never mind the moisture:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

How Bout Another Win?


Nice relaxing win last night. Mebbe some more?

Never mind doing too much thinking’, Big Mike:

Let’t Go Yank-ees!

The Big Push


For what? To trade or not to trade?

Never mind the politics:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

All Considering


It wasn’t that bad a beating at all.

More this afternoon:

Never mind the heat:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Part Two: Them Again


Yanks and Sox.

Oy and Veh.

Never mind the stupidity:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

The All Star Game


The Yanks are 44-44 and there’s a Reggie Jackson joke in there but I’m stumped to pull it off.

The All-Star Game.

Pomp, circumstance, etc.

Never mind the ego trip:

Let’s Go Base-ball!

Two-Three, Break


David Cone was part of the FOX broadcast yesterday and he helped make the Yankees’ come-from-behind win in Cleveland that much more enjoyable.

Nice job by our boys.

Never mind the break:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

The Long Haul


Yanks got the snot kicked out of them last night.

Mebbe today’ll be better.

Never mind the announcers—wait, it’s Coney with some kid, oh goody:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Friday Night in Cleveland


Yanks won a close one last night, and so why not more? I know the Indians are good and all…

Never mind the tom toms:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

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!
