Should have asked earlier, but I thought the master was only doing east coast games for the rest of the year? Not that I'm complaining.

Also, and more critical:

Why the fuck is Hicks playing AGAIN?!? Is management hoping for a career ending injury?

ranger_lp said...

Boonie would say “We’re trying to get Hicksie going…”

Can someone make this shit stop?

ranger_lp said...

The doctors did tests on Montas.

They concluded that he sucks…

Pocono Steve said...

Colace.

ranger_lp said...

Here we fucking go again with Cole…

We don’t have an ace and we don’t have a closer…

Ken of Brooklyn said...

A homer off of Cole 0-3, how shocking URGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edward said...

Momma, there goes that $30 million man again

Hinkey Haines said...

The depth of my hatred of Gerrit Cole is unmeasurable.

EBD said...

Cole is throwing 99, but his fastball is flat and straight, no life.

ranger_lp said...

Judge!!!

borntorun999 said...

And the best thing about Cole? His contract runs for another 6 years after this.

ranger_lp said...

Rizzo!!

Yanks go back to back a belly to belly…

borntorun999 said...

I’m told nobody beats the Riz!
Certainly nobody named Cabrera or Gonzalez.

borntorun999 said...

Scoreboard:

TOR tied
NYG tied
NYJ down by 3

AboveAverage said...

I take 61% responsibility over Boone's not chewing bubble gum of late.

Its just seeds and fingernails for our skip the rest of the way down the stretch.

AboveAverage said...

Nelson is also pretty good in das booth.

JM said...

If only we could get Hicks going to another team.

ranger_lp said...

Hicks killed that rally…ad nauseam…

ranger_lp said...

We finally got a break…

ranger_lp said...

Hicks up again to kill a rally…

AboveAverage said...

yay yay yay yay yay yah yah

ranger_lp said...

FUCKING HICKS…

AboveAverage said...

I SEE NOTHING!!!

EBD said...

Jeff Nelson is an excellent commentator, right up there with Cone and way better than the other guys.

EBD said...

Without the sticky stuff Cole is a mediocrity.

AboveAverage said...

I'm beginning to think that Cole may have a substance abuse issue . . . . (either that or it was some bad sushi) . . . . because watching him pacing in the dugout just before the end of the top of the fourth inning - he looked glassy eyed and just sorta off.

Maybe he just needs a hug.

AboveAverage said...

or some sticky goo

JM said...

You said it, Bosch.

And the Giants are 2-0.

DickAllen said...



I had to check on Hicks. It is a tremendous feat that he is batting 211 - I'm impressed - I could swear he was down in the Gallolian depths. He's actually hitting better than I thought.

Now if we can only get him to stop admiring his warning track power, he might even get up to the lofty heights of 225.

ranger_lp said...

Real time stat:

Arraez: .317
Judge: .314

JM said...

Might as well make Schmidt the closer. Don't see a better choice.

JM said...

Hicks!!!!

ranger_lp said...

Hicks?

Joe of AZ said...

Fuck....this will buy him another month on the team

JM said...

Judge!!!!!!!

JM said...

59

BernBabyBern said...

Wow. Imagine if anyone else on this team could hit.

AboveAverage said...

H(r)ICKS

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

Joe—- you think this team has another month?

Joe of AZ said...

ALL FUCKIN RISE

Mildred Lopez said...


Judge...pfft.

Paper hanger

Joe of AZ said...

Lol when you put it THAT way

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

Oh man I’m on the radio feed… in my world Judge is still at 58

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

One more run and then… an excruciating drought!

ranger_lp said...

Real time stat:

Arraez: .317
Judge: .315

DickAllen said...


With sixteen to go, he's going to best Maris by a few.

DickAllen said...


Judge to Hal
"Get me outta here!"

ranger_lp said...

He’ll beat Maris before 154 games…

DickAllen said...



As if I didn't have enough animosity toward Booooooone, this little news from ESPN:

"Montas has gone 1-3 with a 6.35 ERA in eight starts for the Yankees, who acquired him for four prospects in an Aug. 1 trade with the Oakland Athletics."

When The Intern's Puppet learned this news, he had this to say:

"I thought his fastball velocity was a little bit down in that second or third inning on a consistent standpoint," Boone said Saturday. "Now, in hindsight, that could have been a sign."

Ya think? Thanks for telling us something we already knew.

I have run out of expletives.

TheWinWarblist said...

Judge is good at baseball. Judge could hit 65 homeruns and those inbred fucks will still give the MVP to Ohtani.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Ohtani Ruth is special. He's a two way player non-spectacular at both.

JM said...

Our bullpen can blow any lead, any time.

DickAllen said...

Judge taketh, the bullpen giveth away.

JM said...

Schmidt was great for one inning. Pushing him beyond that is trouble.

Nice catch by Cabrera.

ranger_lp said...

Cabrera better be a Yankee next year…

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Ranger,

How much you wanna bet he's in a package for Sonny Gray 2023 edition?

Doug K. said...

late to the party. watching the giants and then this game on DVR so...

Cole sucks.
JUDGE!!!!!
Cole really sucks
Glad rizzo's back.
lasagna isn't who he was
JUDGE!!!!!! He's truly a pleasure to watch.
Can hicks keep it alive for Judge?

OK all caught up

Joe Formerlyof Brooklyn said...


Pirates have given up 149 HRs this year, one less than the Mets. They rank 22nd overall in yielding HRs.

That's in 147 games.

Red Sox rank 16th, giving up 155 HRs in 146 games.

Yanks have 10 games to reach 154 (after today).

So -- can Aaron Judge hit 2 in the next 10 games? That would give him 61 in 154 (or fewer) -- breaking Babe Ruth's legit record.

JM said...

Hicks is... hitting?

Can Judge hit three?

JM said...

Almost. Double. Triple Crown in sight.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Can the bullpen hold a 6 run lead????

JM said...

Peralta trying mightily to give the game away.

JM said...

Why is he still pitching? Ah, here comes Dopey.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Holy batshit. It's a save situation.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Boonie picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue.

JM said...

What makes you think he stopped?

ranger_lp said...

Yankees Win!!!

JM said...

Another nail biter.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

JM,

The bubble gum.

JM said...

Oh, that. I get it now. Kinda slow today...

TheWinWarblist said...

I'm exhausted. Thu-uhuhuh Yankees win.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

That Judge kid may have a future as a professional baseball player.

BernBabyBern said...

Aaron Judge post-game: "We've got a good team here. Guys up and down the lineup are swinging the bat well."

He hits better than he lies, thank goodness.

AboveAverage said...

I’ll just get on the horn will the Bazooka marketing people tomorrow and see what can be done with Boone’s Bubblessness . . .

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Jesus, Mary and Joseph (channeling my way to catholic father).

The California Anaheim Los Angeles Angels of Disneyworld are on the high (lo)lights.

There is not a fucking person in the stands looking at Babe Ruth Ohtani with his historic MVP season. You'd think they'd have a fucking huge media entourage filling the stands, because he's babe fucking ruth AND stan musial all in one.

They should not even be a mlb team. Demote them to the PCL, like the non-american football teams do.

Kevin said...

Cole is leading the AL in strikeouts. Cole must be in the conversation as a great pitcher, right?

DickAllen said...


Did the Yankees win?

Who cares.

Did Judge hit any homers today?

HoraceClarke66 said...

Had to be out most of the day—just as well, to miss much of this game—but I followed off and on by phone. Holy shit! What a day for Judge!

If he breaks RUTH'S record...AND wins the Triple Crown...AND they win the division...there's no denying him.

AboveAverage said...

exactly why the yankees will sign him then trade him to the twins

HoraceClarke66 said...

There's a name for that. It would be a "Rortvedt."
