Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Happy Old Timer's Day everyone.
Nice moment when Paul O'Neill was introduced. The entire stadium was chanting his name.
Can't wait for Bernie to come back for his ovation.
Goose is starting pitcher. Mickey Rivers leading off. Singled to left field.
Guidry in for Goose.
Joe Pepitone singles to right, Mick the Quick scores.
Cone in, to pitch to Baylor.
Rickey Henderson leads off. He reaches on a bad throw by SS Tony Fernandez.
Abbott threw over Boggs head. Twice.
Boggs singles to right. Henderson to 3B.
Winfield singles to left. Henderson scores.
Mickey Klutts drops an easy popup, Straw reaches.
Graeme Lloyd in. Paulie up. Should have been an easy fly out, but Mickey Rivers let in drop in, then bobbled it. Boggs scores.
Tino up. Fly ball drops in front of Rivers again.
Luis Sojo singles up the middle.
Dave Wells in. Chris Chambliss singles to right. That's five runs scored.
They ended the game with Mike Torrez in to face Bucky. Bucky smacks one to left, but Fernandez makes a great stop. Chambliss out on the force. Game over.
(Dunno if there's going to be a game thread, or if we should just use this one.)
Jered looks so much like his brother it's uncanny.
Betemit is not used to playing 2B. Cano would not have been standing right over the base like that.
well good for betemit making up for his error. that was a nice swing.
Moose so far: 4.0 2 2 1 2 3 0 55-31 3.52
As I suspected: "The chances of getting [Wang] on September 1st is zero," Girardi said. "October 1st is possible."
Also, Moose is on again this afternoon, huh? I've only been listening (was in the car).
And ARod goes deep! This is looking a lot like a win. What am I missing?
I guess Mauer is always in the running.
Even McCarver and Buck know all about the Sultan of Suck at this point.
Oh, I see, if you're predicting, then I guess I agree, he's been on the front page so much.
i hope molina's hamstrings and quads are still attached tomorrow
Mussina 7.0 2 2 1 2 5 0 89-58 3.44
Nice to hear everybody blasting Manny.
Nice inning by Veras.
95 those fuckwits can't help themselves. and we get them next week for the same matchup.
Moose for Comeback Player of the Year?
FUCK YOU Anaheim
(Somehow I feel better now).
If the White Sox hold on in the Central, Jermaine Dye has a very good shot. If not, I say Josh Hamilton. A big jump in a team's W-L can sometimes substitute for finishing first, plus Hamilton has that story line. MVP voters just love a good story line.
It's not good, I don't even think it's exactly bad. It's just how it's always been.
12:20 - arrive at Stadium determined to see Monument Park when the gates open at 12:30.
12:30 - gates open, but they're letting people in in dribs and drabs .... after another 5 minute wait ... a chant goes up "Let's go ushers!"
12:45 - I get inside, buy my program, head for monument park entrance on field level. Only I am told to go to back of line .... which already winds ALL THE WAY to the top of the ramp (Tier seating).
12:55 - Tremendous clap of thunder, followed by torrential rain.
1:10 - Rain stops, but line has barely moved.
1:20 - I give up hope on Monument Park
1:30 - Hit my seat as OTD introductions are starting ... after they take tarp off
Later on ..... notably absent is anyone from the Murcer family (but I can understand given the recency of his passing).
Still later .... reading of names of those who have passed in the last year ends with Bobby Murcer, and a shot of a uniform top with the #1 hanging in the dugout.
Much baseball, many photos, much food .... Yankees win .... thhhhhhhheeeee Yankees win.
