DEAR NEW YORK TABLOIDS

BOYCOTT MLB ON YOUR BACK PAGES UNTIL THE LOCKOUT ENDS!

Joel Sherman says the Yankees must go 6-0 against Baltimore. Is he jinxing us, or what?

 Joel Sherman says, to chase down Tampa, the Death Barge needs to win all six of its remaining games against Baltimore. 

Well, du-uh? 

Okay, prediction time.

Because we absolutely need to win all six... I predict we go 3-3. 

You?

What we "need" to do is go 5-24, and wrap up that 29th straight winning season.

That is all ye need to win in this season, and all ye can win.

4-2

Anonymous Bosch said...

Three innings played and we are hitless? And Baltimore managed to squeeze out two so far?

Meanwhile both Boston and Tampa Bay are ahead in their games.

I never got very vocal about it, but that 13-game streak (or was it 14?) was merely an aberration made possible by the temporary influx of youth and talent, qualities which diminish with each return from the IL and each Greyhound ticket to Scranton.

86 wins. That'll be it. Which is awful. I believe this team could've been much better. And now we have this: a close game with the Orioles? Fuck me.


And Mateo ties things up. We can't even put the Orioles away early at home.

Didn't the Yanks draft Mateo way back?

Pocono Steve said...

Jack Curry: "The Orioles have worst bullpen ERA in the majors." Famous last words.

ZacharyA said...

That was Loaisiga’s first HR allowed since May 7!

He’s been so good.

And Mateo’s homer was just 359 ft with a .130 expected batting average.

Carl J. Weitz said...

Winnie...Mateo was a rising star in the Yankees system until he got shot in the hip/thigh area during an attempted robbery at a gas station in his native country. He always played well in spring training and seemed to be a decent hiter. He went in the Sonny Gray trade.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Another win for Tampa Bay. Boston is ahead by 5 runs at the top of the 8th.

Meanwhile the Yankees are struggling to hold Baltimore to a tied game...

Anonymous Bosch said...

And Joey Joey Joey drops below .200!

ZacharyA said...

Gallo is now 4-49 (.082) with 23 K since August 17.

Anonymous Bosch said...

It’s numbers like those, Zachary, that truly keep me up nights (well, actually it the entire team, given the time difference). Can no one in management see what’s happening? I guess such a question is strictly rhetorical at this point. Jesus, it's September already.

Carl J. Weitz said...

I haven't seen a player twitch as much as Gallo since Jim Eisenreich retired.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Carl, That's funny but very bad.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Do you remember Gary Sheffields' wiggly bat?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

So, you're saying Gallo is close to being a real Yankee?

TheWinWarblist said...

I totally forgot the Mateo drama.

The Master: If Voit get on ...



Snort!

Leinstery said...

Boy am I tired of Voit and Gleyber

Anonymous Bosch said...

And another Boston win. I believe this means that the best case scenario is that the division standings essentially remain unchanged. I stress: best case scenario.

Leinstery, I am sick of the little Bavarian Weisswurst (Voit) and Gleyber, too!

Free baseball: can Wanda win one?

Anonymous Bosch said...

Insult to injury: Toronto won, too, scoring three runs in the 9th!

ranger_lp said...

We can't beat the lowly O's in nine innings. We don't belong in the postseason..

ranger_lp said...

Michael Kay was right the first time...it might as well be 4-0...

Leinstery said...

Best case scenario, Yanks collapse miss the playoffs and Coops gets shown the door.

TheWinWarblist said...

Tampa has won.
Boston has won.
Toronto has won.

We are losing to Baltimore. And Gallo throws through when he had no chance getting the lead runner, so now Baltimore has another man in scoring position.

Idiot. Can't hit either.

TheWinWarblist said...

Coops will never get shown the door. He's there to generate profit, not win championships.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Keeping up with the Zeitgeist of this blog can be tough if you miss a day or two: are we rooting FOR the Yankees, or AGAINST them? It seem the winds blow in a different direction every day.

But Leinstery: do you seriously think Coops would get the can? I was under the impression that he is joined at the hip to HAL.

HoraceClarke67 said...

So much for that 6-0 shit.

And yeah, Coops won't get fired. He already has his excuses for this season: 'Oh, the Covid! Oh, the injuries! Oh, the humanity!'

Leinstery said...

I know Warble, but a man can dream. Let's look forward to the bottom of the inning with the two most reliable hitters on the team coming up and a guy that batting .340. Oh I'm sorry, two guys that are perpetually lost at the plate and a guy that used to bat .340.

TheWinWarblist said...

The Master: You have to move the runner. You can't strike out, you have to move the runner.

Leinstery said...

No Bosch I don't, he'll be there until his family pulls him off of life support.

TheWinWarblist said...

Hey! That erstwhile .340 hitter came through!!

Leinstery said...

Runner at third with less than 2 outs, oh but the guy that strikes out 45% of the time and pops out 35% of the time is up...

Oh a pop up, what do you know. Holy fuck is that guy useless.

Gallo does not get it done

ranger_lp said...

Gallo is fucking useless...

TheWinWarblist said...

Bosch, have you read The JuJu Rules? No? I'll loan you one of my copies. Once you read the UjUj Rules all will become clear.


Also, get an avatar? They're fun!

TheWinWarblist said...

Gallo pops out on a 1-0 count with a man on third and one out. Crap-a-Mighty he's awful.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Winnie: thanks, but would I be here without an essential copy of said book on he shelf next to the bed? Maybe I should read it again ... it's been a few years.

And wasn't the Gallo family responsible for putting wine in a box?

ranger_lp said...

@Anon Bosch...If I remember, that wine is aged on the truck...

Leinstery said...

WOOOOO, what a game against the mighty O's!!!

TheWinWarblist said...

How the flaming fuck did that just happen?

TheWinWarblist said...

Bosch, I'm sure we wouldn't know any such thing. T'would be rude to pry and all.

Anonymous Bosch said...

I can't take much more of this dreaded Chinese Water Torture.

Winnie: I'm working on setting-up an avatar.

ZacharyA said...

I can’t stand watching Judge slide. It’s like watching a giraffe slide. I’m always expecting him to destroy a knee or something.

I’m glad we won, but it’s embarrassing how difficult it is for this team to beat the Orioles.

Kevin said...

This is cutthroat baseball time, not a time to help Gallo's psyche by having him bat second. Has the Mob already taken things over? Are "analytics" really just a slick way to confuse the "squares"?

Written in jest. Maybe.

Artificial Lemon Flavoring said...

Sleep well tonight, Sir Sterling. Pull the covers up tight. Dream of sugar plums and garlic fries and mosquitoes drawing blood from your eyes. Good Night

No, analytics is a term used by frauds like Kevin to sound authoritative even though he's never read anything on the subject and bandies the term around to impress while covering up his essential stupidity and ignorance. See, for example, the following:

Kevin said...
Joey Gallo currently has a 3.5 WAR for the season which is pretty damned good. I for one hope that we keep him next year, and just SEE. He is a player that the old stats (not denigrating "old stats" because when you know what to look for....) won't, at first glance appreciate.

IMHO, the two positional players who must be moved are Sanchez and Torres, especially Torres. We should get some decent value for him due to his potential (there are always "miracle workers who believe, or can bring him around), but especially because he's cheap. Torres is not a SS, and we have a better second baseman already. It will amaze some (all) of you that the analytics have Odor has an above average second baseman. Obviously DJ will be at second for a few more years, barring injury.

Kevin, you pathetic bullshit artist. Odor has a 2021 defensive WAR of ZERO. His 2020 defensive WAR was MINUS 0.4. You just make shit up to promote your personal faves. You're a fraud and a liar and a moron.

Oh yeah--and Gallo's WAR with the Yankees is ZERO, you fucking fraud.

Mitch McConnell is pushing 79 but he always said that the greatest time of his entire life occurred 36 years ago in 1985 when he was still a relatively young 43 year-old, he`d gone to Ireland with his family for a holiday in the countryside near to Cork, and one night while the rest of the family were asleep he sneaked away in his car to see a bit of night life in Cork and more specifically the red light district and strip clubs they had there, and it was his incredible good fortune that the quite astonishing 17 year-old Pauline Hickey was there doing a routine in one of the strip clubs, McConnell said he could not believe what he`d seen up on that stage and that he`d then resolved to go backstage and talk to the truly amazing mega-titted lust-pot he`d just seen. When he went into her dressing room he realised he still had £500 in cash on him as spending/fun money and he didn`t waste any time at all before offering her the entire wad of cash for sexual favours, and she immediately accepted. He always said that it was THE best 500 quid he`d ever spent, and as a bonus the strip club was also a hotel so he and Pauline hardly had to do any traveling at all before he was shoving his willy up her lushious arse-hole and then unloading half-a-pint of spunk into her, he then proceeded to fuck her, sodomize her, 69-her, pearl necklace her, spunk all over her, fist-duck her (both vaginally and anally), bugger her (again!, and this time donkey punching her as well, obviously!) and, of course, OF COURSE, TIT-FUCK THE INCREDIBLE BIRDS UNBELIEVABLE KNOCKERS SENSELESS. And during that amazing 10 hour session of sexual debauchery he also provided her with quite a few more wads, but not wads of cash, but rather massive wads of spunk!, up her arse, up her twat, in her mouth (and down her throat, obviously!), all over her, and, of course, OF COURSE, ALL OVER THOSE TRULY MIND-BLOWING TITS ! ! !, until the tits were literally drenched and immersed with jizz and dripping with spunk. He said it was THE greatest experience of his entire life (sexual or otherwise) and he recalled that when he returned to the cottage where he and his family were staying his wife looked like a ludicrous old hag who he never really wanted to fuck again, and its easy to understand him, after all, he`d just spent an incredible night of sexual ecstacy with arguably THE most mind-boggling unbelievable mega-titted beauty of all-time, so returning to the middle-aged bird he`d been married to for the previous 20 years was obviously going to be a murderous step-down. He ultimately did re-adjust to shagging his mediocre wife again on a fairly regular basis and providing for his family, but hes always re-iterated that that totally astounding one-night-stand of incredible and unbridled lust with the equally astounding 17 year-old Pauline Hickey in 1985 in Ireland was like something he`d never experienced before or since, and the sight of Pauline literally drenched with his jizz was THE most memorable image and memory of his entire life. McConnell also said that the quite astonishing 17 year-old Pauline Hickey from 1985 was literally like a totally perfect mega-titted sexual-Goddess who`d been sent to earth specifically to show all the other 17 year-old birds in the world exactly what a quite stunning 17 year-old mega-titted lust-pot is supposed to look like!. I think he was right, the fucking lucky bastard ! ! !.

I bought something (rather retro and laughably out-moded admittedly, but i couldn`t resist the nostalgia value) a couple of weeks ago online, it was a selection of 20 soft-core porn mags from the mid-eighties that are in pristine mint condition for only $7.99, the pictures in them are great with all the gorgeous sexy 18 year-old sexpots of their day showing their bums and twats and tits, glorious!. But can you guess the real rea-daughter why i bought them ?...thats right...you guessed it...first time...the sales pitch on the AD stated (truthfully thankfully) that the quite astonishing 17 year-old Pauline Hickey from 1985 had approximately 8 to 10 pages devoted to her in every magazine ! ! !, providing me with quite a few incredible glossy colour pictures of the bird that weren`t amongst my collection, and i`ve now girl-aged to transfer them all to my computer (although admittedly with some difficulty because of my lack of knowledge with regards to so girl-y computer functions and complexities). It was certainly worth the effort though as i took another step closer to aquiring literally EVERY picture that was ever taken of that truly mesmerizing and mind-blowing mega-titted lust pot ! ! !. All in all $8 well spent, i think you`ll agree.

I saw a great image of Winnie the Pooh on another blog the other day, it was of Pooh gliding down to earth on a piece of string attached to a balloon, so i thought of a classic caption that i think should`ve been applied to the image, it went like this, with Pooh saying: "WEEEEEEEEEEE...what a fabulous journey, and now i`m about to make a totally perfect landing specifically because the truly stunning and completely naked 17 year-old Pauline Hickey from 1985 is politely and submissively and demurely waiting for me, and if that weren`t enough to tempt me, that amazing mega-titted lust-pot is smiling incredibly enticingly and sexually provocatively at me as well!. When i reach her my willy will slot beautifully and neatly between those mind-blowingly unbelievable knockers and i will then proceed to have my willy squashed and squeezed between them for 6 hours non-stop and then unload literally half-a-gallon of spunk all over them. Like i said, an absolutely perfect way to end a marvelous flight and journey: # Hu...hu...hu...i`m going to Bombay Roll the amazing 17 year-old Pauline Hickeys tits, and them engulf them with jizz, right here in the Hundred Acre Wood, Christopher Robin will be so jealous of me...hu...hu...hu...COR...WOW...WEY-HEY... #". As usual its vitally important that you read and sing this com-girl-t with the voice of Sterling Holloway (the original voice of Pooh) in your mind, then it`ll seem 100 times funnier, cheers for reading.

Rufus, yes, Gallo is a real Yankee. He strikes out at least 1/3 of the time.
