And don't forget the time he hit his manager's housekeeper with a bat! Sure, he SAID it was an accident. But as Jung would tell you, there are no accidents.

Meanwhile, we need a song for today's game. How about this one: "The Minstrel Boy," being played after the Irish Brigade took mass before the third day of Gettysburg?

All right, I know, I know: It was just a movie. And chances are, in 1863, any Catholic priest worth his confessional would've excommunicated anyone who tried to play a folk song as part of a mass.

But still!

The Irish Brigade was made up primarily of New York Irish regiments, including the famous, "Fighting 69th." The Union army tried to attach a regiment of Anglo Massachusetts men to it for awhile, but they wanted out. Fie on them! And on all Boston today!

JM said...

I made the masthead! Such an honor. I'm flabbergasted.

Platoni said...

Well, this is looking like the usual Yankee game after a big win

ranger_lp said...

This is when King gets crowned and not in a good sense...

TheWinWarblist said...

Plenty of ways left to hurt us.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Bonehead is an idiot for putting that play on.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

2, 3 and 4 hitters up. What an asshole.

TheWinWarblist said...

The Master not mincing words: The Yankees failed. They had a runner on third with one out and did not score him. They failed.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Off topic, but does anyone think the current management will have enough class to give the Master a day and a plaque in monument park after they fire him at the end of the season?

Kevin said...

Putting that play on with less than 2 out, and as you pointed, Rufus, just stupid.... David Cone was all for it. But....

TheWinWarblist said...

JM, I felt the same way the first and only time my words made the chyron.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I miss the urine stain uni's.

Kinda reminds me of American Graffiti.

Platoni said...

Death, taxes and GIDP

Rufus T. Firefly said...

There's no such thing as clutch, but there is ICS.

DickAllen said...

Carl, there he is again. Two appearances that I never thought would happen.

But no starts - thank the gods!

Anonymous Bosch said...

Hoiho! I just tuned in.

Well, this seems to be going in accord with my predictions.

JM: congratulations on you masthead debut!

A theme song: all I can think of is the start of the third act of “Götterdämmerung” (“The Twilight of the Gods") – where eventually the Rheintöchter serenade Siegfried but eventually tell him of his pending doom –

Trust me, it’s really cool music!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdpwtzIjmzE&ab_channel=NewYorkPhilharmonic-Topic

6 minutes of incredibly gorgeous music – which may provide a nice break from the daily nail-biting of Yankeedämmerung.

Ja – if anyone is interested – and it’s from NY Philharmonic.

TheWinWarblist said...

This tepid trainwreck is Driven By Jeep ... sigh ...

DickAllen said...

The Sux are preparing us a gift - will the Yankees take advantage or will they once again turn up (or maybe down) flaccid?

Kevin said...

Gardner can still play a good all-around game. But he shouldn't have had to start so many. Cheap bastards....

DickAllen said...

I really want to love Wagner - if only he wasn’t such a complete National Socialist

DickAllen said...

The really good news: Stanton can’t hit into a double play

DickAllen said...

HOLY SHOT!!!

DickAllen said...

HE HIT IT OUT OF THE FUCKING PARK!!!!!

ranger_lp said...

Holy fucking shit!!!

JM said...

Ho ly fuck

JM said...

Got back home in time for this inning. Thank God.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Well, who'd hell thought THAT was coming!

mik said...

"Giancarlo, non si può stoparlo! It is a Stantonian home run!"

DickAllen said...



That was some shot. And at a great moment too. Over the draft kings sign and out into Landsdowne

Kevin said...

Weird, I actually thought of this possibility three batters early. But HOLY FUCK!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Glass man to asshole fans. STFU!

DickAllen said...


I think he might have actually hit that OVER the lights

JM said...

One pitch, wasn't it?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

OK, I was going say bonehead actually put a good play on with Gardner stealing 2 out and Judge up.

Now he has Green up in the bullpen.

DickAllen said...

First pitch, JM

DickAllen said...

What? No Chapman?!?!?

Kevin said...

Hells bells. No confidence in Chapman isn't good, at all.

Platoni said...

Mama mia, Giancarlo!

JM said...

Not Overused Green. Even Chapman is a better choice.

JM said...

Suzy Chapstick warming up.

DickAllen said...

Chapman is up

Kevin said...

I guess that Boone wanted Green to be ready in case of Chapman blowing a gasket...

TheWinWarblist said...

I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ANY BULLSHIT ABOUT REDEPTION ARCS!! TAKE THAT SHIT AND FORCE IN DOWN AND DEEP WHERE IT WON'T EVER SEE LIGHT OR REDUCE OUR ALCOHOL INTAKE!!!


FUCKERS!!!!!!

JM said...

Ugh.

DickAllen said...

Fuck

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Chapo is consistent.

In raising blood pressure.

JM said...

Meatball.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Who's warming up now????

TheWinWarblist said...

WHAT DID I TELL YOU PEOPLE!?!? WHAT DID I JUST FUCKING TELL YOU ALL!?!?!?!?

JM said...

Take him out.

But he won't.

Kevin said...

Oh Hell....

DickAllen said...

Chapman is coming through again. Just moments after Kay extols his recent success.

Way to go guys.

TheWinWarblist said...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JM said...

Boo hoo, Plawecki.

DickAllen said...


Exactly Win.

You took the scream right out of my mouth.

TheWinWarblist said...

The Master: It's not easy. If you've been with the Yankees all year you know it's not easy.


Really? You don't say?

mik said...

How embarrassing it is to have somebody up in the pen when your CLOSER is in??



Chapman better be ashamed.

And better close the door...

TheWinWarblist said...

Green is getting up. I'm going to have flashbacks.

JM said...

Iglesias goes down singing.

For all the girls I've loved before....

DickAllen said...

Somebody had to say that

TheWinWarblist said...

SWEAT YOU BASTARD, SWEAT!!!

JM said...

He's not sweating.

DickAllen said...

But I am

Celerino Sanchez said...

Inglesias son is up now

DickAllen said...

What happened to Chapman fastball?

JM said...

Fer fuck's sake.

JM said...

Ursela nails it.

We win.

TheWinWarblist said...

The Master: Thuhuhuhuhuhuhh-uhuhuhuhuh-uhuhuhuhhhuuuhhhuuuhhuuu Yankees win.

He was very excired.

JM said...

That Stanton slam was Reggie-like.

TheWinWarblist said...

It's like electro-convulsive therapy.

mik said...

Well, Chapman closed the door. Good for him. However, still seeing Green over his shoulder should have him embarrassed.

JM said...

We're beating the Lemons. In Fenway.

Wow.

DickAllen said...

Yeah, very exciting Michael Kay. Tied for the wild card lead - meanwhile the Yankees are only eight games out of first and on the verge of elimination from winning the division.

Just great . How to sell sloppy seconds.

TheWinWarblist said...

Big Sevy get the win and his shredded latissimus dorsi get the game ball.

JM said...

Maybe Sevy can endorse Shredded Wheat.

Kevin said...

Chapman had nothing special... Worried, I am...

JM said...

I need a drink.

Damn.

DickAllen said...

We won tonight for the potential privilege of a one-game playoff just to get into the playoffs.

Very exciting.

It only means both the Sux and the Yankees hopes for a division title can be eliminated tonight with a Rays win.

Celerino Sanchez said...

Stanton is fucking everything up!

DickAllen said...


And the Yankees front office and (alleged) management will crow about how tough and gritty and determined this team is - they showed a lot of heart.

More of the same shit. And the Rays are lounging 8 games up on the verge of another division title.

Remember when winning the division was the only game in town?

Carl J. Weitz said...

If only I bet on 2 Lucky Luis victories instead of starts, sigh.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I remember when winning the world series was the only game in town.

George was an asshole, but that was his requirement.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Yuckersley on NESN wailed for 2 innings on how far the Polish catcher's home run would have gone had it not hit the light pole.

It went into the memory hole when glass man hit one forty feet higher as it cleared the light pole.

Yuckersley's one good point: He's not Jerry Remy.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

JM,

"I need a drink" seems unconnected to the game.

Carl J. Weitz said...

Nor is he Junior Remy The Stabber.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Serial slasher.

bennyboy said...

Where's the post guys?! Stanton saves the day! Juju is exploding out of the pores of every Yankee right now.
