Post Cole Injury Thread

 Figured we need a change of something. This is getting ridiculous.

Anyone have a sharp stick handy?

Pocono Steve said...

Fiddle dee dee. Surely it's just a blister or an ingrown fingernail or a mild masturbation strain, right? RIGHT?

Celerino Sanchez said...

The fat lady has sung. We are on to 2022 and hopefully find some more .200 hitters and pitchers who haven’t thrown a ball in 2 or more years.

129--the magic number.

Perhaps we can start to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the 1971 Yanks.

A grand batch of Yanks from our youth. Murcer, Munson, White, Stott, Stick, to name just a few.

Back when being above .500 meant something to us and visions of WS danced in our juvenile minds.
Can you really think of that team and not smile?

A blister or a UCL tear I wonder what it will be knowing our luck it is probably the latter as his last pichi was 95mph

Celerino Sanchez said...

The pre & post WS years. Don’t forget Fritz Peterson, Steve Kline and the immortal Jake Gibbs

Left hamstring "tightness."

Publius said...

Booth says tight hamstring. I'll bet he's done for September.

That was in another thread. I don't have control. If I did I would have deleted it.

I want to go home. I want to go home. This is the worst trip I've ever been on.

No abuse. From anyone. Except if it's heaped on Hal. Brain, and Boone. Baseball only.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Another lifeless loss coming.

TheWinWarblist said...

Why don't hey let me go home? This is the worst trip I've ever been on.

The first mate he got drunk
And broke in the Cap'n's trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don't you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home

Anonymous Bosch said...

Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it's gone right to my head
Everywhere that I roam
Over land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Winnie, this is worse than the brown acid.

Worse than a Taylor Swift medley.

ranger_lp said...

Season is over...Yanks aren't winning tonight or tomorrow...

Rufus T. Firefly said...

They finally bring up Gil. In a move that would have been correct a month ago.

Now it's just brainless mistaking action for progress. Too little, too late. Rizzo will probably be benched tomorrow because he had 2 hits and needs the rest. And Voit had some really good swings so we'll stay with the hot hand.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Maybe if they get swept and get swept by the muts, Bonehead and Brainless will be gone.

Naw, they'll just sign ICS to an 8 year contract in the offseason to make a big splash.

The guy who won't play tomorrow is Velaquez because "Gleyber is our SS"

WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS?

Pocono Steve said...

Seamus Heaney!!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Who gets more starts between now and the end of the year?

Cole or Severino?

Pocono Steve said...

Oh goody!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Doug K, I stand corrected.

WTF! Why?????? I'd rather see El Chapo.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

For me to win the case of Utica Club, the Yankees only have to go 21-3 for the rest of the year.

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

Carl J. Weitz said...

So...why is it that Tampa, with a payroll 4 times less than the Yankees lead all of MLB in runs scored per game and are one of the top best teams in ERA in the AL?

2 reasons: Cashman and management.
Nothing else.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Is that the first 1-2-3 for Mr. Haney since he was traded? It sure seems like it.

Anonymous said...

It was a no pressure situation for him.

TheWinWarblist said...

8 singles and 1 run.


Fuckers.

Winnie,

There is just so so much wrong with this team.

Doug K.

TheWinWarblist said...

I would gladly go through the brown acid if it meant I'd wake up with Cashman having been fired and Hal having been thrown into Mount Hekla.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Well the torture is done for today.

Pocono Steve said...

It was efficient torture, unlike, say, Sunday's four-hour session.

HoraceClarke67 said...

Fuck the pool—I honestly think this Yankees team will now have trouble reeling in those last 4 wins for a winning record. With their ace—and the only guys with balls on this team—gone, I think they will completely deflate.

I knew this was not going to go well when Matz was struggling in the first and they couldn't get to him. I turned it off right there.

This team isn't even fun to hate anymore.

ZacharyA said...

The Yankees now have 0 walks and 0 extra-base hits in back-to-back games for the first time since June 1962.

Kevin said...

Like pretty puzzle pieces put together with a hammer...

Pocono Steve said...

Too bad the current Yankees aren't as good as that team.

Oasisdave said...

No words, just no words

Kevin said...

I've seen this movie. "Plan Nine from Outer Space". Cashman is Ed Wood, Hal is Bela Lugosi.

Joe Formerlyof Brooklyn said...


Since the 13-game win streak ended, NYYs are 2-7. Four of those losses saw the team score 0,1, or 2 runs. AND: The other 3 of the losses were by one run (in which they scored 7 runs, 3 runs, and 7 runs).

Other than an abysmal performance, this seems to be another example of "reversion to the mean." And of course -- suckification.

Unknown said...

Cole’s injury is Cashman’s dream come true - no longer are the failures of this abysmal team his fault - if only Cole had stayed healthy we would be in rhe Series.

Dude has an ironclad excuse to spin, to explain his failures. My conspiracy theorist side is wondering what he offered Cole to get him to sit out with an injury. As pathetic as this team is - and you all know who I’m talking about - I can’t blame Cole for taking a pass. Everyone but the AAA players stopped playing months ago.
