Michael Kay is talking about Cone trying to get back "that sniff."

This is getting disgusting.

I haven't been on the 'get rid of Hicksie' bandwagon.

After this inning, I can no longer say that. His hitting is bad enough, but FFS, plant your foot throwing from the warning track and a runner moving.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

And why wuz orange roughy pinch hit for last inning? https://www.espn.com/mlb/player/splits/_/id/32170/rougned-odor
He's *better* against lefties, and China Doll is now oh-fer-10 pinch hitting.

Amazing how badly this team plays in every aspect of the game.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Gardy taking a called third strike. Yeah, don't go down swinging or anything.

This guy doesn't have it today, but we're going to let him off anyway. You watch—here comes yet another LeMahieu DP.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Man, this is a bad-hitting team.

HoraceClarke66 said...

And...here comes Giancarlo. Doug K., what is his ranking on your scale right now?

HoraceClarke66 said...

And...Stanton strikes out on a 77-mph change, right over the middle.

I would say that's how it goes. But every single pitch this guy threw him was 75-78 mph.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Two outs, ninth inning.

Two women behind the plate, ignoring game having an *important* conversation.

ranger_lp said...

Gleyber!!!

HoraceClarke66 said...

Bad break on the ball going into the stands. But yes: Gleyber!

HoraceClarke66 said...

And more bad luck for Gio. Damn!

Whatever. I can’t recall a more poorly managed game (on both sides).

Boone is a novice manager with little to show for his tenure. My great hope is that he will go to somewhere else - anywhere else - and fade into obscurity. The guy simply has no clue when it comes to making out a lineup card.

How the fuck does he continue to show faith in Hicks and keep Clint in the doghouse?

Schmuck.

DickAllen1964 said...

I remember George W sitting behind the plate at a playoff game playing Donkey Kong on his phone during a game.

ranger_lp said...

We’re bunting with two strike…FFS

DickAllen1964 said...

OMFG!

They INTENTIONALLY walked Sanchez?!?!?

Is the world coming to an end?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I miss APBA baseball. If the Yankees continue to suck, I may start playing it for the first time in 30 years.

ranger_lp said...

Hicks is not the same…he used to make those throws…

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Good thing they didn't try to get the runner at third, per Mr. Huge Head.

Putz.

ranger_lp said...

Hicks needs to retire..he can’t hit..he can’t throw..

el duque said...

That was a big Yankee loss.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Yankees strategy: Pretend the game has not drastically changed.

Pretend you don't need to know how to bunt or hit a sac fly when every extra inning starts with a men on second.

What's the use of actually responding to reality...when you can alway pretend?

Yankees' record in extra innings this year: 1-3.

Love the APBA cards - I have them! :)

RANGER_lp. He's still able to cash $10m worth of checks each year.

I always liked Strat-o-Matic.
