Drunk Blog (continued): Nicknaming Luke Voit


Deep thought: Voit runs seriously hot and cold. Always extremes. 

Thus, we must rule out "Cool Hand Luke" and/or "Luke Warm," the easy possibilities. 

So...?

I need a beer.

Just when you need him most he sleeps with the fishes.

It's important to stay hydrated in a heat wave. Utica club or Genesee support the local economy. Knickerbocker is not recommended, as it is likely stale by now.

Prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees made the following roster moves:

• Returned from rehab and reinstated INF Gio Urshela (#29) from the 10-day injured list.
• Outrighted RHP Brody Koerner off the Major League roster and onto the roster of Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

JM on the spot!

I will continue using The Big Head Kid.

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

My streak ends tonight… 9:40 first pitch. fuck that.

JM said...

Ump is blind. Terrible calls.

JM said...

Stanton says fuck you. Yes!

Gardner!

Gardie!

Squid double!

JM said...

Glad someone else is awake, Ranger.

JM said...

Rizzo knocks him in.

JM said...

Holy fuck. That went a long way.

ranger_lp said...

Joey!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Damn, I wish I was 40 years younger and could watch this.

Until the ninth, that is. Then it will be frightening.

Damn. They're catching up.

Nyuk nyuk.

ranger_lp said...

Sigh

JM said...

Uh oh. Back to back.

TheWinWarblist said...

It's 6-1 but Taillion just gave up a moonshot.n And now another moonshot. We have no chance.

ranger_lp said...

Starting to look like a beer league softball game...

JM said...

Taillon don't got it tonight.

Ok, I'm shutting the phone off. He won't get through five.

Pocono Steve said...

Ain't it something how six-run leads don't feel like they mean anything anymore?

TheWinWarblist said...

Completely lost the plate. Our vaunted bullpen will show them how to detonate a lead.

TheWinWarblist said...

It's only the 4th inning. No way we hold this lead.

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

I’m deleting any evidence I had of pleasure in this game…. Your minds will be downloaded, updated, and reinserted shortly.

Pocono Steve said...

Yeah, let the people getting paid to stay up and watch stay up and this watch this. Nite nite.

This road trip feels a whole lot like that road trip that derailed their season in 2017. Losing 6 of 7 to the Angels and A's. Yes they made the playoffs, but it crippled their chance at the division.

DickAllen said...

How long do you think it will take for Booooone to realize that Lasagna is a legit closer?

And then again, even if Lasagna pitches two innings, who gets the ninth? Or did we already have that discussion?

DickAllen said...

Sergio Romo? Seriously? I didn’t think he was still alive!

DickAllen said...

And now Chapman is warming up to pitch the ninth

DickAllen said...

I have run out of expletives

Anonymous Bosch said...

Good morning, Dick Allen. Seems you're alone here.

7-6. Hmmmm ... now how can we blow this?

By the way, whenever I see Luke Voit, I think of Bavarian Weisswurst.

DickAllen said...

Whenever I see Chapman with a one run lead in the ninth I get constipated

DickAllen said...

And it’s just after 10 in LA

DickAllen said...

The real question is: will my night be ruined again by the Sweat Hog?

Leinstery said...

We're seriously doing this bullshit again?

Anonymous Bosch said...

07:22 here. Doing the weekend shopping as soon as this is over.

There's a photo on the far right here:

Am I right?

DickAllen said...



Hallelujah!

The longest winning streak since 1961 and Chapman’s 300th career save. Will wonders never cease?

Anonymous Bosch said...

Sleep well, guys. Träum was Schönes.

DickAllen said...

Have a great weekend Bosch!

Platoni said...

I was here too, Bosch. From the beaches of Albania. Woke up at 6 with a raging hungover and suffered through that 8th inning RISP fail.

But a win is a win and my headache has disappeared. Back to the beach with me

HoraceClarke67 said...

Hoss here. With a few more years off my life.

Just to say this for starters: We have to get rid of the replay rule. This is ridiculous already. The fielder holds the ball on a runner for ten minutes and sees if he flinched. It's total horseshit.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Mirëmëngjes Platoni! Nice you still have beach weather - rainy here and not likely to go above 20° till next week.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Agreed, Hoss, and can we please go back to 9-inning double-headers, and NO ONE on base at the start of any 10th?

That being said, there were some seriously questionable calls by the umps tonight (last night - whenever).

Platoni said...

Guten Tag, Bosch. Yes, it is still hot here. Blessed with plenty of sun, this place.

I agree with the covid rules take. May they run out of oxygen and become a Cuomo statistic.
