It's the Miracle of The Gleyber!

Torres WILL be in the lineup tonight, Chthulu be praised!

"Oh frabjous day!  Calloo!  Callay!"  Our beamish boy is back!

Mind you, he's the DH, which seems a little silly.  Why not rest him altogether?  And Urshela is sitting, though he seems to be all right, too.

But let us not look a gift Gleyber in the mouth.  From now on, let this day be celebrated with feasts and celebrations, and humble offerings of live goat sacrifices!

The Gleyber lives!  He walks among us!  (If only haltingly.)

He SHOULD be under strictest orders NOT to run!  All the more reason for him to belt 2 or 3 home runs so he can trot slowly around the bases.

And so continue the merry adventures of Dandy Randy, Amazing Aaron, Dark Lord Hal, and Crackhead Cash and his band of Sodomites. Let's kick some butt, men and ladies.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Tell him to not bust it down the line as fast a Jogginson Canoe. He could pull something that way.

JM said...

We're good. It's Baltimore.

JM said...

Torres is the DH, btw.

Alphonso said...

It is hard to believe; hospital to DH?

What kind of misdiagnosis was this?

ranger_lp said...

I'm sure that it was all precautionary...

Platoni said...

He'll tweak! Rest him!

"The Yankees are my pick to win the World Series."

We're doomed.

As far as the division goes... Let's say it takes 95 wins.

The Yankees have 51 Games left. They need 23 wins. .451 winning %.

The Rays have 49 Games left. They need 30 wins. .612 winning pct.

If we play .500 Ball we will win 25.5 games. (97 wins rounding down)
The Rays would have to play .653 ball the rest of the way to tie.

If we play better than .500 (and we should)it becomes damn near impossible.

JM said...

We're fine. 30-21 at the least. Why? Because....why not?

Incisive commentary. ESPN will be calling any day now.

JM said...

Romaine!! With blue cheese!!

JM said...

Romine doesn't suck.

JM said...

That bad strike call on Judge turned the at bat around. Again, a low pitch, clearly out of the zone.

I don't get it. Did they do this to Frank Howard, too? Does the extra height make umps unable to see his knees?

JM said...

Tanaka can't even keep Baltimore in line. That's not good.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

The next guy, again.

JM said...

Valera. Ask your doctor if it's right for you.

TheWinWarblist said...

JM, it is RIGHT for you and all of us.



Fuck you Hal.

TheWinWarblist said...

Doug K, the season is long. Looooong. There is so much season left. Teams can play way better than .667 ball over short stretches, e.g.'78 Yankees. Harken to me. My words will be marked. The Yankees will not make the playoffs. Injury and a wretched starting staff will implode their chances.


And, yes, fuck you Hal. I hate you so very much, you miserable fucking fucker. That is why your father is still on the first google page when you google your last name, you fucking worthless fucking small worthless fuck. You are a fucking nothing. Fucker.

JM said...

So, what exactly do you think Gardy is juiced up with? It ain't No Doz.

TheWinWarblist said...

Valera.

JM said...

Aha!

JM said...

Oy vey, Tanaka. Oy vey, Kahnle.

ranger_lp said...

The typical letdown after an important series...

JM said...

Ford had a better idea.

TheWinWarblist said...

Why, why, why did they leave Tanaka out there when he is running on fumes and a ruined elbow? Fuck them. Fuck them fuck them fuck them.

JM said...

Tauchman, though.

13bit said...

Noble Tanaka has fallen. Our rotation blows donkey cock. Testicles sagging in the Bronx.

JM said...

Is that a haiku?

TheWinWarblist said...

Harken to my words. Harken.

Who do I send money and how much?

JM said...

Big win.

TheWinWarblist said...

That was a disgusting display. But it's gonna be hard to hold the Yanks down in that ballpark.

TheWinWarblist said...

Every Yankee win is a big win.

Wojciechowski pitches tomorrow. Might be the guy we see next monday.

I loved him on Barney Miller.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Me an' Scotland are feelin' just a wee bit o' pride that Mike Ford came through with yet another clutch hit!

Just to let you know: Ford has played in 13 major-league games. He has been on base in all of them. Time to commit!

HoraceClarke66 said...

Amazing defense pulled it out for us tonight. But I have to agree with the Warbler: Ma has got to wake up and be much quicker with the hook when Tanaka is pitching like this.

Tanaka was in trouble in nearly every inning he pitched, and was just bailed out by those great plays in the field. Even with a 5-run lead, it's idiotic to leave him out there to surrender four booming hits and a sac fly in the 6th inning.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Unfortunately, the Red Sox just held on against KC, which had the tying run at the plate in the ninth. But Tampa Bay managed to lose to Toronto even with Charlie Morton starting.

Lead is now 9 games, 10 in the AILC. 16 in the AILC over Boston.

Also, the Mets swept a doubleheader against Miami, making them 11-1 over their last 12 and putting them over .500 for the first time since May 2nd.

That's right: May 2nd. Still. They have a shot.

TheWinWarblist said...

Agree with me and harken to my dark words!!!!



Harken Hal and fuck you!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

The lead gets bigger.
All important loss column.
Another big win.

13bit said...

More will be revealed this week, Winnie.

13bit said...

JM, that was more free verse than a haiku. Kind of a My-Ku, as Frank Sinatra may have opined.

I was driving around Brooklyn and blindly dictating into my communications module and that's what came out.

I'm shot and must go to bed.

Mike Fan Cessa said...

Keep a grasp on that kitchen doorframe, Alphonso.

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

What is Gardy juiced up on? Festeris my friends, Festeris. https://johnsterling.blogspot.com/2013/02/what-did-john-sterling-mean-in-10-years.html

Oasisdave said...

I'm starting to wonder if this team needs to have a strong starting rotation to win. The hitting is just ridiculous

HoraceClarke66 said...

Ma was saying it was the fact that they were all "hungry."

Yeah, I guess when you sign a contract for $300-million plus, you start to fill a little full.

HoraceClarke66 said...

That's "feel" a little full. Thank you.

There is something wrong with Judge. He looks lost at the plate. He is having trouble pulling the ball. Hardly any of his homeruns have been hit to left field---check the spray charts. These are symptoms similar to those that preceded his last stint on the IL.

Anonymous said...

If you compare his 2017 spray charts to his 2019 spray charts, the difference is astonishing. Roughly half his homeruns in 2017 were pulled. Now none of them are. He can pull grounders and low line drives, but he cannot pull with power. There is definitely something wrong physically. If he's in pain, he should acknowledge it and put the team's interests ahead of his own.

ranger_lp said...

Judge is still injured. He can't swing with full power because of it.

Scottish Yankee fan said...

Delighted to see Ford playing well

Myself and Horace were the lone voices in the wilderness for calling him up

When you think of some of the players that have played 1B and did nothing all the while Ford was tearing up AAA

And yes I know the biggest leap is from AAA to the Majors I just always felt that he was worth a look at he gets on base and has good power as well and certainly could do better than the multitude of worn out players who stunk up the place the last couple of years

HoraceClarke66 said...

Actually, I think Judge has NO home run to the opposite field this year.

Hmm, if only we had some good-hitting outfielder in the minors who could let him get a little rest before the postseason...

HoraceClarke66 said...

Damned straight, Scotland! And as such, he's exactly the sort of player the Yankees and their Sabremetricious analysts always claim to want: even when he's not hitting for power, he's getting on base.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Judge has none pulled this year. A few to center.


He is definitely still hurt. Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine and Dr. Howard must work for the Yankees medical evaluation staff.

Anonymous said...

HC66--No home runs to the opposite field? Some of your attempts at analysis are so daft that it's impossible to tell when you're joking and when you're attempting to be serious. Nearly ALL his homeruns are to the opposite field and a couple to center--and none to left. Here's the spray chart. Jeez, man--learn how to do some basic research.

I just got off of my shift at The Pizza Pit. Mommy had a sandwich waiting for me in my basement apartment and I ate it. Then I picked my zits and changed out of my cool orange and red uniform. After I attempted to sooth my onanism, I decided the world should know of the depth of my baseball knowledge. I insult everyone, but claim I’m the one being picked on. I’m Stat Boy!®™, and the world should pay for me being such a loser!
