WOW. THEM RAYS AIN'T GOT A CHANCE!

DickAllen1964 said...

Who the fuck is running this shit show?!?!?

DickAllen1964 said...

I seems I ask myself that question every fucking day.

DickAllen1964 said...

That makes three lefties in the lineup.

Hmmm...

Yeah, all three suck, but...I wonder...could it be that someone thought...

Nah. Not possible. Not with Moe, Larry, and Curly running things.

Platoni said...

I am amazed at Boone's proclivity to see things as relatively fine no mater how hot the house fire is raging. Yesterday he was babbling about how their at-bats were showing signs of improvement vs the shitshow in Detroit over the weekend. If he'd been born a few thousand years ago, YHWH Elohim would endorse him for governor of Sodom and/or Gomorrah.

Boone is a talking head - a meat puppet - on Brian's left fist.

Brian is calling the shots.

Which is why he needs to be held accountable.

BUT...BUT...BUT...

I believe....

not sure what, but I believe.

Mustang, reading your list was like being on the receiving end of 10 hard slaps to the face.

Have they actually resorted to assigning positions by pulling names from a hat?

ranger_lp said...

Their computers need an update...garbage in...garbage out...as they say in my field.

DickAllen1964 said...

I took a quick look at the SWB roster and it came as no surprise to discover there is only one lefty bat on the 40-man: Florial.

DickAllen1964 said...

Of the 17 position players currently on the 40-man, only 4 are lefty bats. Maybe this is an unfair comparison, but the 98 team had 19 position players with 9 of them batting lefty or switch.

Brain, you were there. Do the math. You want to win, you need to either get or develop lefty/switch bats. Aaron Hicks does not count.

BernBabyBern said...

I am convinced that Boonie has ping-pong balls with the players' names and sets the lineup with one of those machines they use to select the lotto numbers.

DickAllen1964 said...

That’s being awfully generous Bern. It sounds like you’re suggesting he has a method.

Kevin said...

Is this some kind of fantasy league lineup? Billy Boy Martin would have beaten The Brain to death.

Kevin said...

There's..... got.... to..... be.... a....morning.... after..................

DickAllen1964 said...

That’s being awfully generous Bern. It sounds like you’re suggesting he has a method.

DickAllen1964 said...

Shit. Did it again.

If we had our druthers 5 of the nine starters would even be Yankees.

Tonight will be another dreadful soul-rotting nightmare, isn't it?

TheWinWarblist said...

And we are off to another great start.

DickAllen1964 said...

Fuck it. I can’t watch this shit.

WEEEEEE...are the CHAMPions........WEEEEEE...are the CHAMPions.............of the WOOOOOOORLD.....

You think we'd crumble?
You think we'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not us, we will survive
Oh, as long as we know how to love, we know we'll stay alive ...

"Pathetic" doesn't even come close, and when I am at a loss for words, that's a sure sign of Deep Hurting.

mik said...

This is painful. A lineup of zombies, barely going thru the motions.

Miggy, Miggy AnDUjar – he’s very upset
He’s sick and tired of livin’ in debt
Tired of roaches
Tired of rats
I know he is …

mik said...

What are the odds that we can get a 2 out RBI hit??????????????

BernBabyBern said...

The Yankees' best offensive weapon is now the bases-loaded walk.

mik said...

Two runs!!!!!! Still no base hit for the RBI...

BernBabyBern said...

"OK guys, whatever you do, DON'T SWING!!"

mik said...

We've gone from "Savages in the box" to "Keep the bat on your shoulder, we'll be better off!"

BernBabyBern said...

Miggy! Pretending it's 2019!

JM said...

I like Miggy.

TheWinWarblist said...

Oh Lasagna, Lasagna, Lasagna ...

TheWinWarblist said...

Savages in the Box? It's like a dream that phrase. I try to grasp the memory but it's not there. It's not there.

TheWinWarblist said...

LASAGNA!!!!!!

JM said...

What the fuck was that?

Platoni said...

Did Sanchez just shit the bed between the bases again?

TheWinWarblist said...

Wow, that almost makes me forget that FUCKING SANCHEZ JUST RAN INTO THE 27TH OUT ON THE BASEPATHS THIS YEAR MAKING THE FIRST OUT AT THIRD THE MISERABLE FUCKER NEVER HEARD NOT TO MAKE THE FIRSTORLASTOUTOFANINNINGATTHIRD!!!!!!!!

Damnit. Just trade him or release him or put an oar on his shoulder and send him over the GWB with instructions to keep walking until someone asks him what's that on his shoulder and then cram him into a molten glass furnace.

Fucker.

TheWinWarblist said...

JoeoAZ, you can't hide from us. We know where you're from.

TheWinWarblist said...

DOWN GOES FRAZIER!!! DOWN GOES FRAZIER!!! And I don't mean to Scranton-Wilkes Barre.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

ICS needs an ankle bracelet that shocks him if he is not standing on a base and the ball is less than 250' away.

ranger_lp said...

ICS needs the chain around his neck like the poor dog in the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons…

ranger_lp said...

Here comes the rally killer…

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Chapo needs to loose the grip on one to offset assholes throwing to first with judge running. They're attempting to get him injured. No other reason.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Let's hope the hamburger shows up.

...but I doubt it.

ranger_lp said...

Fuck Stanton

Rufus T. Firefly said...

ground chuck showed up

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Glad I missed most of this. Glad to miss the rest of it.

ranger_lp said...

Rolaids is on the mound…

ranger_lp said...

Did anyone notice that YES stopped showing the hitters’ game summary (e.g. 1-3) in the game box during this extended slump?

ranger_lp said...

Ha I posted that and they turned it on again lol

Platoni said...

There was a time when DJ coming to bat with RISP meant you could start loosening the wires on the champagne cork.

These days one goes to the can with no fear of missing anything

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Oh, FUCK!

BernBabyBern said...

The Yankees' best offensive strategy ... DON'T SWING, GARY!!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

six inches from the end of the bat.

They're screwed

ranger_lp said...

Sanchez sucks

BernBabyBern said...

Why da fukk did he swing???

BernBabyBern said...

Been a helluva game for ICS so far, huh?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

A foot from the end of the bat.

Would have been a walk if he kept the bat on his shoulder.

Damn this is awful.

BernBabyBern said...

George would have him on the bus to Trenton before the start of the next inning.

TheWinWarblist said...

ICS cannot hit a breaking ball. Or a fastball. I'm pretty sure he can hit the all you can eat buffet. He'd never get thrown out heading to the ice cream bar. He'd be like Billy "White Shoes" Johnson.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

This is masochism watching the game.

Platoni said...

DFA this fucking deadweight

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Boner is an asshole. Mechanical substitutions without any coaching.

BernBabyBern said...

Oh, and Sanchez will be the runner at second to start the inning. Great.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Hit Wade. Bat Torres for ICS. QED.

,,,or try to lose.

Carl J. Weitz said...

Ranger...you forgot to add the word "cock".

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Wide open right side. Ground to short. Uh-huh!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

speedy runner on third with two outs.

Yankees are sure to win. Or the other outcome.

ranger_lp said...

Frazier!!!

BernBabyBern said...

DOWNTOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWNTOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWNTOWN GOES FRAZIER!

Anonymous said...

Why do I feel nothing ... no joy at this? I think I need to cancel my MLB subscription and pencil-in more appointments with my shrink.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

At least Ginger has that fuck you look after hitting it.

Brain is checking to see if he has options to go to Scranton right now. He must need rest.

TheWinWarblist said...

What the fuck just happened?? What the fuck just happened??

JM said...

Well, well.

Anonymous said...

It just goes to show you can't predict baseball.

Carl J. Weitz said...

Lucky that it didn't hit the top of the wall and Frazier thrown out at first.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Yeah, I was going to say, Carl Weitz, 'You're gonna stand there and flip the bat at home on a ball that lands in the first row? With your .179 average, for your bad-ass self? Fuck you.'

Well, at least he's got attitude.

JM said...

Let the guy enjoy it. It's been rare enough.

Anonymous said...

He stood and gazed at his first row HR because he was in shock
The Archangel

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I'll give Frazier the benefit of the doubt. If it wasn't out, even ICS could have walked home. Also, the left fielder likely catches it.

That said, it would be nice to see everyone hustle to first on every fair ball.
