Yanks-Tigers Nightmare Game Thread

We're #1--in grounding into double plays.

Kay spent a lot of time explaining how Sanchez is above average offensively compared to the average for catchers. This is one of the dumbest stat-based arguments for a guy who barely hits. That when he does hit, he's awesome.

He doesn't hit enough. Period.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

And on cue, ICS has the only yankee hit so far.

Man, they are painful to watch. I've been to budget meetings that were more exciting.

TheWinWarblist said...

What we're seeing here is that batting average actually matters. Immensely.

JM said...

Yes indeedy.

Alphonso said...

Boone uses an obviously unprepared Stanton to ruin all Yankee chances in a close-game loss pitched by our ace
yesterday ( Stanton was 0-5 with 4 Ks ), but won't use him in a hopeless game, pitched by our number one bum pitching prospect?

What better time to give Stanton some at-bats to " recover his timing?"

In this game, it won't matter what he does. The Yankees have no shot.

So Boone does nothing.

And prepares Stanton to go 0-5 tomorrow, where we will be desperate to salvage one.

Incompetence abounds.

Alphonso said...

I guess we can close the book on Abreu as a top prospect.

Pretty soon, only Jessica Dominguez remains.

TheWinWarblist said...

Maybe the best pitching in the league and they still suck.

JM said...

Pathetic. I'm watching Midsomer Murders.

Alphonso said...

Duque is not listening or watching. He is grilling hot dogs and elk steaks.

Although it is cold in Syracuse environs.

Who thinks the Yankees come back and win this one?

DickAllen1964 said...

It’s cold in Syracuse?

You should see it in winter!

TheWinWarblist said...

No one of us think the Fuckees are coming back to win this one.

DickAllen1964 said...

As for the Yankees, the winter of our discontent has already arrived.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Fonzie, I'll take the under on that one.

Lucky for me, my lightning fast DSL line has dropped the video feed and I only have the dulcet tones of the Sterl to relay the game to me.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

It snowed here in VT today. Got all the way to 34F for a high temp.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

ERA of 14.

"So you're saying there's a chance?"

Sterl: "You can't do it."

TheWinWarblist said...

Pathetic lifeless effort

Platoni said...

Guys, relax. We've been facing top pitchers the last five games, veritable aces. Why, I wouldn't be surprised if they all shared the Cy Young award this year, they're that good.

Fuck this team and Hal with a rusty wine opener

Rufus T. Firefly said...

One wonders what Scooter would say about today's game -- this one and most ones nowadays. In between talking about cannolis, he'd be furious. A player like him would never get above single A.

Then, there's Stengel. "Can't anybody play this game?"

Some random thoughts as I bounced in and out of today’s mess (first look: 1-0; second look: 1-3; third look: 1-6):

Michael Kay: “Lifeless… anemic… they’re gonna play four with the RRRRRRRREEEED HOT Tampa Bay Rays followed by three with the RRRRRRRREEEED HOT Boston Red Sox.”

Pitcher for tomorrow, as per the official Yankee site: the eternally beloved “TBD” – (King’s name was added since I began writing; wake the kids and phone the neighbors!)

Re: Alphonso’s anguished cry of “Incompetence!” – Has anyone considered making players pass a basic intelligence test before signing them? I believe we have four categories:

Smart, and knows what they’re doing: in short supply, Yankee-wise

Smart, but the body can’t meet the brain: probably the saddest category, led by Old Uncle Gardy

Dumb, but capable of producing by sheer body mass: I don’t want to be too Judge-mental

Dumb, and has no clue what they’re doing: Guys, guys! There’s a 2-for-1 sale at the Dairy Queen if we get there before the little hand is on the 6!

These are the guys who hear “clutch” and think:

Who hear “reliever” and think: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbPVGLQBeBs

And who hear “strike” and think: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lt4u1hAy-E

Does the DQ special include ice cream sandwiches?

Asking for a friend. Or maybe someone I know *of*.

celerino sanchez said...

You can put Devi Garcia & Albert Abreau in the NYY Pitchers HOF with Brandon Clausson, Chance Adams, Manny Banuelos, Andrew Brackman, Ian Kennedy, Joba Chamberlain, Ed Yarnell, Brien Taylor, Phil Hughes and a plethora of other pitchers that HOF Cashman has brought into the fold. If it wasn't so pathetic, it would be funny

Kevin said...

A frightening and infuriating thought popped into my mind: unless I am mistaken, the last home grown Yankee Cy Young winner was Ron Guidry, 1978!!!!!!!! Aaaaiiieee !!!

HoraceClarke66 said...

You are correct, Kevin. Though I would have been happy to settle for a slew of Cy Young winners acquired from other organizations!

Kevin said...

Horace, totally agree. But how emblematic of this pitching "curse" that goes back to 1961 when Whitey won his. How in the he'll is this even possible?

Kevin said...

Who is that statue supposed to represent?
