Yanks need a lift from their young gun. I expect the offense will get the led out too.
Let's Go Yan-Kees!
From the crystal ball:
No BBs, 7Ks, 7 IP, 2 ER (the lefty McClouth gets him)
(understated and dignified) John Sterling: yankees win. ah. yankees win.
Joba: the one that says Badassmuthafucka on it.
1. I agree, McClouth has the gusto to pull that slider if it hangs up too long.
It's Peanut Butter Joba Time!
Now I feel better.
Wow, amazing. Every freaking play has involved Wilson, seems like!
posada driving the ball up the middle is so nice to watch.
By the way, 68 & 69 were when Joba went 3-0 to Duke, then struck him out.
probably a midge repellent strip ...
I will do my part!
Meanwhile, the Yanks booth is hilarious. The claim seems to be that Jeter is to be admired for not admitting to injury and doing a shitty job while playing hurt. What am I missing here?
....and the K!
I love that Joba is throwing the curve tonight, and getting strikes with it.
Morgan is not a good hitter. I think maybe I would have let Duke hit and used my pinch hitter for Morgan.
Speaking of which: pinch hit for Joba this inning? If anybody is on base, I'd say yes.
"8th inning what, now?"
Hey, It's TJ Beam! Maybe now we'll see what all the excitement was about!
92 good call.
Which pitcher in the major is actually so bad that Cano can hit a 400 foot home run?
99 I must be strange; I prefer watching when the Yanks are winning.
C'mon Jeter! Draw the walk and get Bobby up there!
I give up. There's just nothing to complain about.
119 Wow, Garcia must be having a good night! ;)
Pirates announcer says that Bobby's home run last night was "wasted" but that tonight's was "meaningful." Don't think about it too much or your brain will bleed.
Alex called it - the offense is alive!
Impressive considering they don't have Nick Punto to pin the Gators deep in their own territory.
though when he hits like this, he's The Attack Hamster, which i took from a PJ O'Rourke essay, where he describes a military officer he meets as, "powerful-looking in a short, compressed way, like an attack hamster."
bobby abreu, attack hamster.
OK, Joba gets to start the 7th vs LaRoche, right?
That's impressive on a bunch of levels. You think the Pirates wish they had held on to him?
Young set the tone; he only pitched 8 seasons in Boston.
I wonder which pitcher has appeared the most years in a Boston uniform?
If I'm reading that list right, there isn't a single pitcher in the Hall of Fame with a Red Sox cap on his plaque. I wonder who will break that streak first: Clemens, or Pedro?
Seems like a lot of players are playing in Korea now, as a stepping stone to Japan and then MLB, or just to make more money than they'd get in the minors.
RAB linked to a blogpost today that showed just how much Torre has used poor Scotty over the last couple of years ... especially given the fact that he hasn't been all that effective.
Who is Karim Garcia?
OK, Pennock doesn't bother, but I do not think of Lefty Grove as a Red Sox.
This is just too weird.
It's tough to tell but there is a B up there.
Lefty's is more clearly Boston:
i would like to know more about how they decide which hat a player goes in wearing.
my friend (a big mets fan) and i were trying to figure out what piazza would go in as - of course he wanted him in as a met; though i think a pretty good case could be made for him as a dodger - but who knows.
So Moeller is the only healthy guy left on the bench - does he hit for Ohlendorf, or does Ross bat for himself?
202 It used to be that the player picked, though I don't know how long that went on. Then, after it was rumored that George was offering Winfield $100K to go in with a Yankees cap, the HoF took the choice away from the player and makes the final decision itself. IIRC, it will consider the player's wishes, but need not follow them.
I think Piazza goes in as a Met, and rightfully so.
So now the Hall reserves the right to make the decision, though they will take some input from the player. Basically, the Hall tries to ask this question: with which team is a player best remembered? Service time, along with where your prime seasons fell, are the two big factors in answering that question.
mehmattski and others on extra innings - i really hope we get yes tomorrow - these pittsburgh annoucners are getting to be too much.
by the way since riyank has proclaimed tonight as answer night - anyone know the process for which station you get on extra innings?
Anybody looked at his career month-by-month recently?
Grabow's primarly role is to get lefties out, so of course, his first out is a RHB.
221 Don't know about on cable, but on DirecTV, we've been getting both home and away feeds.
Give me Kay-Cone-Flaherty or Singleton-Murcer any day.
227 agreed - as annoyong as michael kay can be at times i will take a yes booth any day i am watching a yankee game
more evidence of the stupidity of the save -based on the box score paps gets a save for getting one out in a 5-0 game
Did EDSP learn nothing from Tanyon Sturtze?
144 You might say that Chacon got into a row vs. Wade (or you might not).
This pun, endorsed by fellow pundit Underdog, also receives my Seal of Approval >;)
