Execute Sevy now in center field.

Local Bargain Jerk said...


Bottom of the 1st: Is it just me, or does Polanco always look like he just did a line of Coke the length and thickness of a pipe cleaner?

13bit said...

Could be the chicken broth enemas he has publicly copped to doing before every game.

On an unrelated note, I feel that State Farm doesn't love me anymore. Does anybody here use AMICA for home, auto and other sundry insurance-related needs? I'm serious. Is there a baseball game on TV or something?

Leinstery said...

Suzyn just gave us a frightening inside look into the dugout. Rothschild was talking to Severino and undoubtedly giving him terrible advice.

Also Nice call by John, I thought it was a pop up.

Local Bargain Jerk said...


I'll support my snarky comment above with visual evidence.

PED's are not just steroids.

Just lost the audio output jack on my laptop.

It's either listen to John and Suzyn on scratchy laptop speakers, or the fox tv audio. Please tell me Schmuckz is not announcing.

Platoni said...

Dammit, Rothschild! What did you tell Sevy?

13bit said...

He told him he's madly in love with him and now Sevy's all fucked up. Larry should have waited until after the 5th inning to do that.

ranger_lp said...

Sevy!!!!!!

TheWinWarblist said...

LBJ, please, please, fuckin' please no more photos of Polanco.

TheWinWarblist said...

Bitty, we all know how difficult mad love can be. But Larry is still so very gross.

BernBabyBern said...

I'm bummed about one thing. Mike Nelson of MST3K deleted his Twitter account. He was a Twins fan and had a hysterical Twitter meltdown when the Yanks beat the Twins a few years ago. He would have certainly had a couple choice Tweets after the Twins didn't score last inning.

Platoni said...

Sevy putting duty before love. Larry ain't pleased, but el duque certainly is

BernBabyBern said...

If you're wondering, this was the meltdown ... https://johnsterling.blogspot.com/2010/10/and-for-tonights-entertainment-watch.html

TheWinWarblist said...

When did Mike Nelson delete his twitter? Was it the third inning of Game 2?

13bit said...

Sevy is at 50 pitches and only 28 are for strikes.

TheWinWarblist said...

His control isn't particularly sharp tonight, that's true. Movement and velocity are okay, though. Another couple of months and he'll round into mid-season form.

Grrrr ...

ranger_lp said...

Too many pitches...

Platoni said...

What on earth was that, Gleyber?

el duque said...

Has anybody noticed that incredible head of hair on DJ LeMahieu? He's a shampoo commercial waiting to happen.

TheWinWarblist said...

El Duque, I like what you're doing with changing the title.

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

Wow! Washington over LA 6-1. Max Scherzer pitched 7 innings (106 pitches) giving up one home run in the first. A brilliant, brilliant performance! Game 5 in LA on Wednesday.

I tuned into the Yankees once and saw Sevy had the bases loaded and no one out and turned it off.

So I am about to switch back on and see if anything happened. Any highlights that I should know about?

And yes: Don Juan LeMahieu's hair has puzzled me all season I think maybe he should consult with Luke (or else go full Gardy).

13bit said...

Four innings? This game is going to end in November.

13bit said...

His strike-to-pitch ratio is improving. I must leave the premises. The dog needs walking. I'm going to brush my teeth and maybe check out the game from my tree stump after I pull the hatch shut. I guess nobody here uses AMICA.

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

Announcer said "This may be Severino's last inning."

Ever?

TheWinWarblist said...

I use New York Central Mutual, but I don't know why. It just kinda happened when I moved into the wilds of upstate NY. I know not this AMICA of which you kvetch.

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

I use Wiener Gebietskrankenkasse - gold old WGKK. Was ist mit AMICA?

el duque said...

Tommy Kahnle is to thighs as DJ LeMahiue is to hair.

13bit said...

Holy shit, Duque. That messed up my mind. I need to go consult the Dhammapada now.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

OK, but Green looks like he should be out plowing the north 40.

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

13bit: this may be more convenient (and its not in Sanskrit): https://betches.com/best-baseball-butts-mlb-playoffs-2017/

Gleyber, you spicy sexy bitch!!!

AOBF - We don't traffic in pornography on this blog. We don't curse, either, or think impure thoughts. We drink only mountain spring water and eat fruit that has fallen from trees, lest we be accused of being fruit killers. This link you posted is so filthy that you are going to have to beg for forgiveness IF some of the lesser gods will deign to listen to you.

In the meantime, what happened to my fingernails? I cannot take this any longer. Off to bed. Still reading the Chernobyl book.

Whether we win or lose, we need to trade this whole fucking team. I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more.

Going to lacerate a pain au chocolat in the morning and then kick some righteous ass. FUCK YEAH!

Good night, crew.

TheWinWarblist said...

AOBF, that's lovely, but if you'd ever seen Sid Fernandez pitch in his beefy prime? Well, that butt was something alright.

DJ LeMehieu is to hair as Gary Sanchez is to lard

i.e. sports it proudly and saggingly

TheWinWarblist said...

Sid's mighty hocks in their prime.

I thought this wasn't a porn site???????!?!?!?!?!?

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

Rufus, you sound like Margaret Dumont defending herself as a "straight lady."

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

WinWarblist - could you please do your game-end thang as a yodel tonight?

ranger_lp said...

Twins got broomed!!!!

Leinstery said...

You'd think that eventually the Twins would, not so much win a series, but merely a single game. I truly though they were due, and they looked worse than ever.

Platoni said...

That's correct. They were made to look like a completely different team

Austria's Only Baseball Fan said...

So... who do we play next? Any guesses (educated or otherwise)?

Ken of Brooklyn said...

SWEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeePPPPPPPP!
Fantastic game, WHOOOHOOOO!

HoraceClarke66 said...

PHEW! Now I can exhale.

Had to go out to a social event, and came home cursing to think that I had probably missed the whole game...only to find that it was the 7th inning. Phew again—but these things are interminable!

For the sake of the JuJu, I thought that being silent so far, I should stay silent.

For once.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Very nice. Still can't picture us winning it all. Buuuut...always nice to win, anytime.

Ken of Brooklyn said...

Bring it Mighty Winwarblist, BRING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mustang said...

Great series. We look for real.

The pain of the Twins fans. They all looked like they couldn't believe they fell for it again.

Three down. Eight to go.

HoraceClarke66 said...

So, 18 games. 16-2 record. 14 in a row.

This is how the scoring has gone:

2003: 16-6
2004: 21-17
2009: 15-6
2010: 17-7
2017: 8-4
2019: 23-7

All told, Minnesota has been outscored, 100-47, or by an average of 5.56-2.61.

The only two games that Minnesota won? Johan Santana started both of them, the last one in his Cy Young year of 2004. The Yanks scored a total of just 1 run in those two games.

This year? It was the most lopsided win yet for the Yanks, at least in terms of the score.

A remarkable domination, just when you consider the laws of chance.

I'm sooo tired. I forgot how little sleep I get in November.

So who is the Co-MVP then? How about Joe Girardi? He's great as a commentator!
