See ya, Sale.

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Once again we’re one swing from turning this back into a game.

JM said...

Middle relief is their weakness.

JM said...

Wonder if anyone will identify the photo.

JM said...

Gardner scores!!! Voit!!!!

13bit said...

Buckner?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Buckner...

Rufus T. Firefly said...

LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUke!

13bit said...

Voit is going to Wally Pipp Bird.

TheWinWarblist said...

BIG GIANT HEAD !!! BIG GIANT HEAD !!!
BIG GIANT HEAD !!! BIG GIANT HEAD !!!

JM said...

Buckner.

13bit said...

ADROIT!!!

JM said...

BGH!!

ranger_lp said...

At least the Yanks are showing signs of life...

JM said...

John sez, Fenway.

apoorplayer said...

I get up to pee and Luke what happens....

JM said...

Run scores, but shit.

JM said...

Oooh, APP.

apoorplayer said...

OK DIDI!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Better than a DP, but that sucked.

TheWinWarblist said...

DiDiJuJuDiDiJuJuDiDiJuJuDiDiJuJuDiDiJuJuDiDiJuJuDiDiJuJu!!!!!!!!!

JM said...

Not giving that pitch to Pawtucket.

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Is there any run-scoring play more deflating than a GIDP?

JM said...

Hahahahahahahahaha!!!

JM said...

This guy sucks.

ranger_lp said...

49 footer there

BernBabyBern said...

Oh dear lord, let's hope this whole rally doesn't rest on ice cream sandwich.

13bit said...

Boston, suck my fucking balls!

apoorplayer said...

There we go! Another hook.

JM said...

This whole rally rests on Ice Cream Sandwich.

ranger_lp said...

Wow could you imagine ICS...nah

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Oh, I don’t know if I can bear to watch ICS here.

apoorplayer said...

ICS whatever you do don't melt

BernBabyBern said...

Report from Suzyn ... Aaron Hicks has a "right hamstring something."

JM said...

The doctors are looking at Hicks. Wonder if he's looking back.

TheWinWarblist said...

Big Daddy Ice Cream Sandwich strides to the plate, like a Collossus, the Fens tremble at his giggling approach!

JM said...

Such fragile players.

JM said...

Ball 4, baby.

JM said...

Loaded up.

JM said...

C'mon, Gleyber.

apoorplayer said...

Good AB. Didn't force the issue

TheWinWarblist said...

Here comes Gleyber!

JM said...

I told ya, the soft underbelly.

apoorplayer said...

Just make contact. Bat on ball.

Pocono Steve said...

Well, let it be known that it was at least made interesting for a while here.

BernBabyBern said...

For those of you in the chat room with formal medical training ... How long does a "hamstring something" usually keep a player out?

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Be patient here, rookie.

JM said...

You said it, Steve.

JM said...

If it was Mantle, they'd just tape him up and he'd play tomorrow.

JM said...

3-2

KD said...

Come on Gleyber!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

BBB, it could be day to day or a 60 day DL, depending on severity of the 'something'

JM said...

FUCK!!!!

ranger_lp said...

That sucked

apoorplayer said...

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkk.

BernBabyBern said...

Ah, shit

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Dammit.

JM said...

Gleyber played that like a Yankee veteran.

BernBabyBern said...

I think my wife has some medical texts, because she's in the healthcare field. I'll see if I can look up "something" so I can get a better idea of where Hicks is going to be for the rest of the series.

Pocono Steve said...

It was interesting. My interest has collapsed into sullen disappointment.

BernBabyBern said...

Oh good, Sonny Lynn is back out. ... I mean Lance Gray. ... I mean ... ah, fukkit.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Fuckity fuck the fucking fucks

BernBabyBern said...

Sonny Gray and Lance Lynn sound like the names of a jobber wrestling tag team who weigh about 170 pounds each and are about to get destroyed by the Road Warriors.

apoorplayer said...

Have no fear. Joe Kelly will be in soon enough.

JM said...

Shit, two out walk so Mook can come up.

JM said...

Oh, yeah! Kelly sucks. Even my cousins who like the Sox say that.

Pocono Steve said...

Wish Lance-o-lynn would calm the fuck down and end this inning.

JM said...

I hope we can avoid Birdman Kimbrall.

Or is it Kimball, like Green Acres...

JM said...

Hate those stupid, senseless posers

JM said...

Bye, ya mook

apoorplayer said...

OK there's a wide one for us. Kept Benintendi from coming to the plate with two on.

JM said...

Should've scored another run or two last inning. But still, nine outs to go.

JM said...

Cutch is I what he was, but I kind of like him.

JM said...

Isn't what he was

JM said...

Judge!

apoorplayer said...

We are set up now. Must be Barnes coming in and not Kelly. Shit.

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Gardner ready for his close-up?

JM said...

Yeah, fucking Barnes.

JM said...

C'mon, Brett.

JM said...

Wild one

BernBabyBern said...

Come on Brett. One more "Gardy goes uardy" For Old Times Sake.

apoorplayer said...

Excellent! Time for Boston to choke

JM said...

Almost another wild pitch

BernBabyBern said...

"Yardy" ... Fat thumbs, small phone.

JM said...

Loaded up!

ranger_lp said...

Bullpen imploding

apoorplayer said...

Good AB! If they bring in Porcello that lets us know they don't trust their BP

JM said...

Porcello is warming up

apoorplayer said...

WE HAVE TO EXECUTE!

BernBabyBern said...

Man, can Giancarlo please get a nice fat pitch like he did against Oakland? Please?

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Time for Stanton’s Yankee Moment.

(The good kind.)

apoorplayer said...

He missed that one

BernBabyBern said...

That wasn't his moment ...

JM said...

Another bad pitch strikeout. Fuck him.

BernBabyBern said...

Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuke!

JM said...

All season with him, only a few weeks of good hitting.

JM said...

Gardy slide plates one.

apoorplayer said...

I'll take it!

JM said...

Great slide. Wily veteran.

BernBabyBern said...

Time for Sir Didi to be King Didi ....

BernBabyBern said...

Wile E. Veteran

JM said...

Lol

Leinstery said...

Fucking bums

apoorplayer said...

Needed one more run. Damn

BernBabyBern said...

Well, if we keep chipping away, we'll catch them somewhere around the 14th.

ranger_lp said...

Shit

JM said...

Stanton sucks. I don't care how many meaningless HRs he hits, or his occasional high average streaks. We need a consistent hitter in that slot, not him.

JM said...

We need more Miggys, less John Carlos.

apoorplayer said...

Wile E. Veteran. Nice! That makes CC our Craft E. Lefty

apoorplayer said...

I'll be here all night

Pocono Steve said...

I'm already tired of this advert with the Pearl Jams.

JM said...

John and Suzyn are castigating the three schmucks who couldn't get a hit with bases loaded no one out.

JM said...

At least Voit got a run in.

JM said...

We should be up 7-5. Bedshitters.

apoorplayer said...

As well they should. We should be ahead now

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Gotta score more than one with bases full and no one out.

TheWinWarblist said...

NOW!!!! MAXIMUM FUCKING JUJU!!!!! UNLEASH UNLEASH!!!!!

BernBabyBern said...

Why does coming to New York cause some players to morph into Dave Kingman? I mean, Stanton wasn't exactly Rod Carew in Miami, but he wasn't a 210+K guy either.

JM said...

Porcello and Asshole Birdman coming up. Low odds.

BernBabyBern said...

I like Craft E. Lefty

TheWinWarblist said...

NO TIME, NO TIME, UNLEASH ALL THE JUJU UJUJ JuJu jUjU YOU HAVE!!!! MAXIMUM EFFORT!!!!!

JM said...

Bern, remember Curtis Granderson? Good spray hitter with some power. Then 40 HRs and .240. terrible.

ranger_lp said...

That was almost a disaster...

BernBabyBern said...

OK, why did Britton apparently throw a 98 MPH slider to Voit at first?

TheWinWarblist said...

CAVORT! GAMBOL! INCHOATE WARBLE! WARBLEWARBLEPANTSONHEADPANTSONHEAD!!!!

JM said...

Panties on head, man! Get a grip!

TheWinWarblist said...

Yes, Triple B. That's exactly what Britton did. A fucking bowling ball slider to Voit.

apoorplayer said...

Do I have any more Percocets? Let me check...

apoorplayer said...

There will be no Joe Kelly. Cora knows better

BernBabyBern said...

John, Jason Giambi did the same thing. He hit .340 one year with Oakland. He comes to NY, within 2 years he's hitting .240 and wearing golden thongs.

JM said...

Yep. I remember.

apoorplayer said...

The star rooks have a bad case of nerves.

JM said...

Miggy has to learn to walk. Lousy OBP relative to BA.

JM said...

Watching Kimbrall is worse than facing him.

Jerk.

apoorplayer said...

Let's clip the Birdman's wings

apoorplayer said...

He's the only pitcher in MLB who has to rip a fart before getting a sign

BernBabyBern said...

Shit, shit, shit.

apoorplayer said...

Damn.

TheWinWarblist said...

"Whoever can surprise well must conquer."

apoorplayer said...

We are not executing in the clutch. At all. We have had so many opportunities tonight. We are beating ourselves. I hate when we beat ourselves off when we should be fucking the opposition

TheWinWarblist said...

What I am drinking.

https://www.cocchi.it/cocktails/corpse-rejuvenator/

JM said...

You said it, APP. Exactly.

13bit said...

We have not execute in the clutch for almost 10 years. "Clutch" is the word that does NOT describe this team. It is one of those intangible things that does not appear in binders, although I'm sure someone will point to some strange acronym that purports to represent "clutch," "heart," "guts," "balls" or "money player."

13bit said...

Bad week to stop shooting battery acid.

apoorplayer said...

Winny, that would go good with my oxycodone right about now

JM said...

Oh yeah. Anything is good with oxy.

Lol!!

TheWinWarblist said...

13bit!!!! My bosom awaits you and your head!!! My fucking Siamese cat is screaming himself hoarse!! He is the stupidest animal I have had!! He is blissfully free of the ravages of intelligence!!!!!!

apoorplayer said...

You're very right, 13bit. Because we have no one to teach them how to perform in the clutch. Or what to do in clutch time. Make contact. Move runners. You know what I'm talking about. Baseball.

TheWinWarblist said...

https://www.cocchi.it/cocktails/corpse-rejuvenator/

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Where have all the homeruns gone
Long time passing...

JM said...

Win, you have all those esoteric ingredients on hand? I'm impressed.

TheWinWarblist said...

APP!!!

https://www.cocchi.it/cocktails/corpse-rejuvenator/

JM said...

Fuck you, Kimbrall.

ranger_lp said...

JUDGE!!!!!!

TheWinWarblist said...

ALLMUTHERFUCKINRISEMUTHERFUCKERS!!! ALLMUTHERFUCKINRISEMUTHERFUCKERS!!! ALLMUTHERFUCKINRISEMUTHERFUCKERS!!! ALLMUTHERFUCKINRISEMUTHERFUCKERS!!! ALLMUTHERFUCKINRISEMUTHERFUCKERS!!!

apoorplayer said...

I love it but I hate it. Too little too late. We need baserunners!!!!

JM said...

Gardy, let's go

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Well, there’s one.

TheWinWarblist said...

Fuck Kimberly rough in the mouth on his knees in the shower.

JM said...

Shit.

TheWinWarblist said...

A lemon is not an "esoteric ingredient." 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋

JM said...

I hate the fucking beard and the fucking asshole birdman stance. Repulsive.

JM said...

Aside from the lemon...

Unsustainable BABIP said...

Only drama with Stanton is how many pitches it’ll take for him to strike out.

ranger_lp said...

Stanton sucks

JM said...

Fucking Stanton fucking sucks.

BernBabyBern said...

The dink broadcaster says that "you couldn't ask for a better lead off hitter here than Gardner!" Um, yeah, someone who gets on base a little more often would be nice.

apoorplayer said...

FUck. Stanton looked like one of those Italian piazza statues in that AB

BernBabyBern said...

C'mon Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuke!

TheWinWarblist said...

NO TIME, NO TIME, UNLEASH ALL THE JUJU UJUJ JuJu jUjU YOU HAVE!!!! MAXIMUM EFFORT!!!!! GIVEALLTHEJUJUYOUHSVE!!!!!!!!!!

BernBabyBern said...

Ok, .... NOW!!!!

JM said...

Shitfuck. Should've won. Pathetic.

apoorplayer said...

Oh man. Bad bad loss. Lost opportunities everywhere you look.

BernBabyBern said...

Fuck.

JM said...

Tomorrow, men.

Hey, how come there's no women on this site? Are we so unattractive?

ranger_lp said...

Wasted opportunities...

BernBabyBern said...

You know, el Duque's comic "The Wrong Earth" features parallel universes, Alpha and Omega. Just curious ... is there a universe where Stanton doesn't strike out more often than most people blink?

TheWinWarblist said...

John M, you are unattractive in ways you will never grok.

apoorplayer said...

Tomorrow. David Price. We got him. Or else.

TheWinWarblist said...

But we live you for your service tonight. A womanly bosom awaits you, although it may just be on a hairy sweaty chubby dude.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Today's game summary:

Gotta score more than one with bases full and no one out.

TheWinWarblist said...

Thanks Ruf. You're a big fucking help.

TheWinWarblist said...

Can you write the epitath for my tombstone? "TWW was great except for the death thing." . YOU'RE NOT HELPING!!!!!!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Yeah, well I had to watch the fucking game and shouldn't have.

...and I'm not good with a chisel, so get someone else to write your epitaph.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

P.S. Suzyn agrees with me in the postgame.

JM said...

I may be unattractive, but my wife still likes me. And she's younger and cute.

8 minutes to my 63rd birthday. Have many drinks, as if you needed the excuse.

TheWinWarblist said...

I FUCKIN' HAD TO FUCKIN' WATCH THE FUCKIN' GAME TOO !!!!!!!!

JM said...

Fucking sad for fucking all of us. We'll get these assholes...

Anonymous said...

I'M BESIDE MYSELF WITH ANGER AND DISGUST....

FOR YEARS, WE WERE OUTHIT AND OUT-"CLUTCHED" BY BOSTON'S CLEANUP HITTER COMPARED TO OUR CLEANUP HITTER.

FOR YEARS, THEY HAD PAPI, AND WE HAD AROD.

BIG MISMATCH IN THE PLAYOFFS.

PAPI WOULD GET CLUTCH HIT AFTER CLUTCH HIT, AS AROD CONTINUED TO SHIT THE BED.

NOW, HERE WE ARE YEARS LATER, AND THEY HAVE JD MARTINEZ, AND WE HAVE THIS STIFF GIANCARLO WHATEVER THE FUCK HIS NAME IS.

ONCE AGAIN, BIG MISMATCH.

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY, BUT WHEN YOUR CLEANUP HITTER IS MAKING $300 MILLION DOLLARS (LIKE AROD WAS, AND STANTON IS NOW), AND THE BASES ARE LOADED WITH NO OUTS IN A PLAYOFF GAME, YOU WOULD THINK YOU CAN GET SOME KIND OF RETURN ON THE INVESTMENT.

....BUT NOT FROM OUR CLEANUP HITTERS IN THE PLAYOFFS...NOPE.

NOT FOR A LONG TIME.

THINKING ABOUT HOW STANTON HAS ANOTHER 10 YEARS WITH US, MAKES ME WANT TO COMMIT SUICIDE.

AS WE CONTINUED TO GET RUNNERS ON BASE, AND MOUNT OUR COMEBACK, AS THE CROWD BECAME MORE TENSE AND QUIET, I ACTUALLY FELT LIKE WE WERE LEADING, AND BOSTON WAS BEHIND.

THAT WAS UNTIL STANTON STRUCK OUT WITH THE BASES LOADED AND NO OUTS.

RIGHT THEN, I KNEW IT MEANT THE GAME.

AS I FLEW INTO A NEAR RAGE, I EVEN GUARANTEED MYSELF, THAT IF THE GAME WAS CLOSE IN THE 9TH AND HE FACED KIMBREL, HE WOULD HAVE NO SHOT HITTING HIM, AND WOULD STRIKE OUT.

BOY, THAT PREDICTION WAS HARD TO SEE COMING, RIGHT?

I'M A REAL KRESKIN, HUH?

TOMORROW IS A MUST WIN. (FORGET ABOUT COMING HOME WINNING 2 THEN GOING BACK TO BOSTON TO WIN A 3RD STRAIGHT GAME). AIN'T HAPPENING.

WE CAN WIN 2 AT THE STADIUM, BUT IT WILL BE LIKE HOUSTON LAST YEAR. WE WILL FALL SHORT.

WHOLE SEASON IS TOMORROW.

PRODUCTION MATTERS.

CONTACT MATTERS.

MOVING RUNNERS MATTERS.

ESPECIALLY IN THESE GAMES.

CAN OUR CLEANUP HITTER EVER GET A CLUTCH HIT?

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

John, Alles Gute zum Geburtstag! Wow - I'm old enough to be your... younger brother.

BernBabyBern said...

Happy birthday, John M. Hope you get a Yankee win as a gift.

TheWinWarblist said...

Happy Birthday John M. We all become more disgusting as we age, but that's okay as long as we have someone we love and who loves us back. Like me and Buck's Puckered Hemorrhoids.

TheWinWarblist said...

SING IT, ALL CAPS. SING IT.

JM said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Anon is so right, it hurts. Badly.

I'll never criticize Cashman again if he can convince (accent on con) the Dodgers to trade for Stanton. A minor-leaguer back would suffice and then we can sign Harper who at least makes contact with a baseball often enough befitting someone with talent to be a major-leaguer. Los Angeles really wanted to get Giancarlo before the Yankees snagged him.

Good deal???
