What is best in life…

TheWinWarblist said...

This is going to be terrible. You watch. Watch and behold.

TheWinWarblist said...

Double play, you say? Yes, double play.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Tampa won today.
Toronto won today.
Seattle is about to win any minute now.

What could possibly go wrong?

TheWinWarblist said...

The Yankees are tied with Tampa Bay for best ERA in the AL, tied with Houston for second in ERA+, and third in the AL in FIP. Despite that, they are 5th in runs allowed/game.

AND 9th IN RUNS SCORED/GAME. They are not good. The sucking flows strong in these our 2021 Suckees.

TheWinWarblist said...

Remember. You heard it here first.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

I miss the urine stains.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

At least they have ICS in for his defense.

ZacharyA said...

Eduardo Rodriguez this season:

vs Yankees 3.00 ERA
vs everyone else 5.25 ERA

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Joe West needs a short break from umpiring. Say two or three centuries.

And he needs to be tortured for the entire time.

A drunk child could call a better game.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Intemperate tots?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Herr, Herr!

Anonymous Bosch said...

Monty's meltdown moment?

Thanks, Joey.

TheWinWarblist said...

Monty pitching a good game. Annnnnd we have no runs.


Fuckers.

Pocono Steve said...

Bases loaded. Nobody out. What do we do to disappoint here?

JM said...

That's how.

TheWinWarblist said...

Gardner, who really should retire, is never going to be a 3 to 5 WAR a year player anymore. that is obvious, but he still has a positive bWAR, 1.0, for this year. He might maybe could kinda be a 5th outfielder next year?

No. No. Nope! NOOOOOO!! I've lost my fucking mind.

JM said...

"So A-Rod, you were crucified for using steroids, but when Papi tested positive, we didn't hear a peep about it. How do feel about that?"

TheWinWarblist said...

JM, I shall quote from earlier:

TheWinWarblist said...

Double play, you say? Yes, double play.

September 26, 2021 at 7:16 PM

JM said...

Yep.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

It was a tainted milkshake. Only available in the DR.

JM said...

DJ plays a nice third.

JM said...

Monty losing it.

Pocono Steve said...

Everybody knew it except for Boone.

Pocono Steve said...

Holmes, man.

JM said...

He got amazingly good.

DickAllen said...

The Yankees are hanging on like a snot

JM said...

ICS swings at three straight lousy pitches. Looked like shit.

TheWinWarblist said...

JM, how could you tell the difference?

TheWinWarblist said...

I'm listening of radio. Did ICS take those swings on one knee?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Joe West is an alien.

I figured out what species he is:

https://meninblack.fandom.com/wiki/Ballchinian

Pocono Steve said...

It would have killed them to leave Holmes in a little longer?

JM said...

The bad Wanda.

Leinstery said...

Why bring Joely Rodriguez in... and I mean ever?

Pocono Steve said...

Cora pinch hits, and Boone overreacts.

JM said...

Imploding.

JM said...

Boone is an idiot.

TheWinWarblist said...

Sooo, The Adverb is stinking up the joint, but who exactly do we go to now?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

And we called Girardi "Binders". Bonehead does nothing without the command from the puppeteers.

John and Suzyn both think Holmes would be out of the inning by now.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

ICS can't catch the curve in the dirt, but he can sure bat down the one-hopper from the outfield.

Now, to just get him a glove to wear instead of that cinderblock he tries to field with.

Pocono Steve said...

Boone didn't take Holmes out. Cora did.

Platoni said...

Suzyn just asked this but I gotta ask it too, given my fucking limited - proven and professed - lack of goddamn baseball knowledge: why the fuck do you take out a relief pitcher that just ended an inning in 11 fucking pitches?! Fuck!

JM said...

Day off tomorrow. Why not use Holmes for another inning? Because of the meaningless lefty-righty bullshit?

What a lousy manager. Incredible.

JM said...

Now poor overused Green.

Jesus Christ.

Pocono Steve said...

That's all it was: lefty-righty bullshit. Cora baited Boone, and Boone fell for it.

JM said...

Called out on the outside pitch.

Joe West is retiring, but he's at least one year late.

JM said...

DJ blows one. Wow.

Leinstery said...

Analytics Aaron always makes the right move, for the other team.

RagsandPags said...

A stunning pitching decision. Clay Holmes is a good pitcher. Jolie Rodriguez is not a good pitcher. I'm amazed that Jolie Rodriguez was brought into the 7th inning of a Yankees-Red Sox game with the season on the line. If you go down, you must go down with your best. Jolie Rodriguez is the worst pitcher in the Yankees bullpen.

Platoni said...

You know what that dropped ball means, right? RIGHT?

Platoni said...

And there it fucking is!

DickAllen said...

What a fucking mess

JM said...

Wtf? Gallo dropped it?

DickAllen said...

The Yankees are back

JM said...

Holy fuck.

TheWinWarblist said...

This is what I was getting at earlier. Pitching numbers look good, but still giving up a lot of runs. I think the defense might not be good. I think it might be bad.

JM said...

Sorry, Wanda. I thought you were pitching before when it was Joely Richardson.

BernBabyBern said...

This is unreal ....

Once again, it's not the number of losses that is so frustrating about this team, it's HOW THEY LOSE.

TheWinWarblist said...

Also, and I think we all agree on this, and I cannot stress this enough, Boone is a fucking idiot.

DickAllen said...

Oh, you think that highly of him, do you Win?

TheWinWarblist said...

You leave Wanda out of this, JM. Wanda still has plenty of time left in the season to fuck up for real.

JM said...

West is an embarrassment.

TheWinWarblist said...

I'm coming around DickAllen, I'm coming around.

JM said...

Why not slide?

Why?

DickAllen said...

Boooooone is a miserable useless cunt.

What would it cost him to challenge that call?

JM said...

I think Wade beat the tag anyway. Of course, no challenge.

ranger_lp said...

Here it is one of the biggest games of the year and the Yanks are playing like a little league team....FFS....

TheWinWarblist said...

Did Wade really NOT slide? Didn't slide? Really? What a fucking idiot.

Did he LEARN THAT FROM BOOOOOOOONE!?!?!

Fuckers!

DickAllen said...

This team playing like little leaguers should come as a surprise to no one paying attention

Pocono Steve said...

Tee the fuck off on Ovaltino.

JM said...

Judge not looking too good.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Yankees got one bad fielding play back.

JM said...

This is like the Bad News Bears vs the Bad News Bears II.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Quite a few urine stained uniforms in the stands. They'll all meet at Playland after the game.

JM said...

West blows another.

JM said...

Judge!!!

ranger_lp said...

Unfucking believable...

Leinstery said...

I love John, but I swear he called Judge out 3 or 4 times in that at-bat. Might be time to hang it up.

ranger_lp said...

What a bizarre fucking game...

Pocono Steve said...

Joe Fucking West.

DickAllen said...

How about a FUCK YEAH!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

West just blows.

Judge takes advantage.

Ottovino was a made man Yankee until he spit the bit, then turned traitor. He deserves it and whatever other humiliation is to come.

TheWinWarblist said...

What is happening? What is this? Cut it out! I will never let you hurt me again!

I should've changed that stupid lock! I should've made you leave your key!!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Just a pinkie,

At least it's not an oblique strain (for the next 18 months).

JM said...

Holy fuck!!!!

ranger_lp said...

Holy fucking shit again!!!

DickAllen said...

FUCK YEAH AGAIN!!!

TheWinWarblist said...

IF I THOUGHT FOR JUST ONE MINUTE YOU"D BE BACK TO BOTHER ME!!!

JM said...

Stantonian.

TheWinWarblist said...

Wait. What?

HOLY CRAP A-MIGHTY.

Who is that man and what did they do with Stanton?

Pocono Steve said...

FUCK YOU, OVALTINO!!

DickAllen said...

So many long faces in the stands. It brings joy to my heart

TheWinWarblist said...

Double O hits Rizzo. That's real Boston class there.

Leinstery said...

Gallo deserved that plunking.

JM said...

Why is Ottavino still in there?

JM said...

Oh. He's gone.

ranger_lp said...

NY Otto showed up again...LOL

BernBabyBern said...

This has been a bizarre game, that's for sure.

Stanton has has a weekend, hasn't he?

JM said...

Welcome to Bowie's Glass Yankee tour.

JM said...

Stanton has had a Reggie worthy weekend. Maybe better.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Any time the urine stains are embarrassed is good.

Since the black swan is lurking, I'll quote our own Dick (don't call me Richie) Allen from earlier today:

"And while we’re on the subject, let’s not be rolling around in our joy just yet. This team has done absolutely nothing. They are like a cheating girlfriend who comes by one morning still damp from the night before and fixes your pancakes. Oh joy! She’s come back! ... Remember: it’s the hope that kills you."

September 26, 2021 at 9:53 AM

These Yankees are still sloppy damp.

TheWinWarblist said...

The Old Yankees saved the damp slop for us in the Canyon of Heroes. What the fuck is wrong with the 2021 Suckees?

DickAllen said...

Thank you Rufus.

What’s that puddle on the floor?

It’s Dalbec wimping out on yet another foul ball that allowed Judge to stay alive. He wet his pants once again.

Thanks little Bobby.

JM said...

Imploding again.

Pocono Steve said...

Holmes comes out, but Greene stays in. Gotcha.

JM said...

Dalbec with the Golden Sombrero.

Local Bargain Jerk said...


When did A-Rod become such a fucking traitor? It's one thing to feign objectivity while hosting a national broadcast, it's quite another to favor the Yankees' opponent. Says A-Rod at the bottom of the 8th, just after STanton's home run: "Let's bear in mind that the Yankee pitchers need to get 6 more outs. Anything can happen."

What is his objective in saying that?

What a friggin' dick.

JM said...

Forget it, Steve. It's Boonietown.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

LBJ,

A-roid was a dick when he played for the Yankees. He was barely tolerable then in the times that he hit, which was not often enough for those ridiculous contracts.

He's just not trying to hide it anymore.

Pocono Steve

"Holmes comes out, but Greene stays in."

It's bonehead anti-logic in the anti universe. Only Dragonflyman knows why.

Pocono Steve said...

A-roid was complaining earlier on the stupid ESPN broadcast about Yankees fans booing him while Redsocks fans cheer Ortiz. I dunno, maybe one fan base is a little more principled than the other one? Just a wild guess.

TheWinWarblist said...

Even with a 3 run lead, Wade just gotta get thrown out twice.

TheWinWarblist said...

Oh, also: Fuck Arod.

JM said...

Ty, Ty, Ty. Tsk tsk.

JM said...

Here comes sweatball.

Pocono Steve said...

Alex Verdugo: A Portrait of Santa Claus as a Young Man.

JM said...

What? A ball?

JM said...

West has cataracts or something.

JM said...

That was an incredible missed call.

JM said...

Biting nails. A walk.

TheWinWarblist said...

West does that shit intentionally, his vision is said to better than a Golden eagle. He's just a giant fat fuckface dick.

TheWinWarblist said...

Go FlopSweat Go!

JM said...

Ta da.

JM said...

Sweep, baby.

TheWinWarblist said...

The Master is happy. I fell like a battered intimate partner who was taken out for ice cream.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Winnie, you have too high of an opinion of Joe West.

Everyone knows the fans go to the game because he's umpiring.

TheWinWarblist said...

Okay, I have nothing further to add tonight. I can only screw stuff up at this point. G'night all.

Kevin said...

Tyler Wade, the cornerstone of every championship club. In spite of his speed... And in spite of Boone's best efforts to lose the game... We won.

Pocono Steve said...

Top performer of the game for the Yanks? Joe West.

Lemon Flavor Whooosh said...

SCHWEEEEEEEEP!!!!!

Pocono Steve said...

After the LeMahieu and Gallo business? We had no right to win this game.

Anonymous said...

Look at the rest of the schedule for NY, TOR, and BOS. The Yankees are likely to go 2-4 and Toronto and Boston are likely to go 4-2 or 5-1 against the last-place clubs they will be facing.

JM said...

Toronto is stumbling and Tampa is resting up for the WS run. We could do fine.

Kevin said...

Pocono Steve, absolutely right. And Joe West shouldn't be allowed to drive a car. He has SUCKED for at least fifteen years. And Wade, who in the HELL taught him how to steal?


Umm, I have noticed that the vitriol for Stanton has eased up a bit since sometime in July. And who did Voit piss off?

The Archangel said...

Nothing says satisfaction like the second night of a honeymoon [you really need a day to recharge after a Midwest all day and night wedding]
and a weekend sweep of the Red Sucks, whether the Yanks will end up blowing or not.[Which based upon logic , returns me to my first point.]

The Devilish Archangel

Ceeja said...

Stanton cleared the wall with a line drive. The Mick would have been proud of that one.

Judge pops his dislocated pinky back in while on second base and refuses to come out. None of these guys need any "resting." Keep playing the same fucking lineup
