No joke: Maybe it's time to think about Ryan McBroom

Hey, last year around this time, the Yankees rescued Luke Voit from minor league Purgatory. We love to dust off Ryan McBroom after a sweep, but could we be overlooking the answer to our first-base situation?

I know, right? What the hell does this guy have to do to get a shot? But I imagine they'll leave him in Dunder-Mifflin Land at least until September...

They must have caught him hitting on HAL's wife at last year's office Christmas party.

Folks, nothing has changed about the meetup on Monday - same time, place and setup - except for one thing: LBJ is unable to make it due to events beyond his control.

Since I am not planning to appear at this bar until noon or a little before, is there anyone going who will be there by 10 and to whom I can send my number, just so that we have a communication line available?

There is also the possibility that we may now have an extra two seats for purchase or possibly even to give away to a blog member, family member of a blog member, or a droid affiliated with a blog member.

Anyway, again, nothing has changed. Stick to the original plan and I will appear holding the tickets and shirts, but I'd like one volunteer to be the point person on the day of so that I can communicate with you all.

Feel free to email me if you prefer.

13bit said...

Actually, I realize now that I have most of your phone numbers, so what I'd really like is to know who's going to be there early'ish.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I'm unreliable, but I should be there by Bert Blyleven.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

LBJ will be missed. It sucks when work gets in the way of enjoying life.

TheWinWarblist said...

It's happening again!? Our guys are fucking savages in the box!

I am hoping for early-ish!



Fuck you Hal.

TheWinWarblist said...

I will be wearing the home jersey of the greatest pitcher to ever lace up spikes in the modern era.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I'll be in the Hawaiian shirt. Blue and white. I don't own a Munson Jersey, so I won't be wearing it.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Fat Pussy troll will be in the Pizza Pit delivery uniform, complete with grease stains.

TheWinWarblist said...

"Fucking savages in the box." An adage for a weary modern age.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

The Machine is pretty good.

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

i don’t know what box Judge is supposedly savaging... maybe Samantha Bracksieck?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Yeah, Judge should be having his R&R on the EL right now. Let him fully heal and then bring him back.

HoraceClarke66 said...

13bit, I will try to be there by 10. Any particular name I should give after knocking on the secret, sliding window?

LBJ, very bummed we will not be seeing you.

HoraceClarke66 said...

This hitting is kind of unreal. So is how fast our leads will suddenly be cut in half. But hey, we'll take it. Gotta bottom feed while we still can.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Also, another good game from Cessa? WTF is going on???

I love it. Except...put Judge on the EL. NOW.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Don't look now, but check out best record in MLB.

Hoss,

With LBJ unavailable (I'm bummed too), you'll need to be the ringleader. Use the code name "Uncle Fester". Works every time. Don't bite the light bulb.

13bit said...

Hoss, I don't know anything about secret names. The bar is LBJ's idea. Were LBJ to not exist, we'd be meeting by the bat.

That being said, I think it's a good plan and we should honor the man and hope all is well with him.

I'll be wearing shorts and a tee-shirt - most likely the commemorative one that features an artist's rendition of an actual Rizzuton. I'll have some tattoos and might wear a Yankees cap. I'll be accompanied by my friend Tom, who reads every word that is posted on this blog, every day of the year, but does not post. He'll probably be wearing a Hawaiian shirt and, combined, we'll be the guys you cross the street to avoid, and not because we're threatening.

I'll text you and/or Winnie as we get closer - actually, maybe a half hour before we get there, subway signal permitting - so that you can all wipe up the puke, hit the johns, and get ready to tromp up to the Stadium.

JM said...

Judge is worrying me. Even from my Air B&B in Austria, I know something is wrong.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Cool. And Tom sounds like a great man.

13bit and Gang: I will likely be wearing my "thumbs-down" tee-shirt, and a 1996 Yankees world championship hat, the NY now yellowed with age.

This will be fun.

HoraceClarke66 said...

JM: Weirdly, last night I actually took some solace that Judge was swinging at 3-0 pitches, just doing anything to get himself started. "Hmmm, maybe he's NOT hurt..."

But I suspect he is. And he is sad to watch.

I would wear my Bobby Murcer Day shirt from 1983 ... if I was about 30 pounds lighter.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I'll be in a blue and white Hawaiian shirt. Not sure if I'll were a NYY hat. I have trouble with bad hair on a good day.

No body art other than a few scars, but many women and children have crossed the street when I've been in a bad mood.

Good times with good people.

Life is good today.
