Game 159: You want to know what I think? I think he hits it tonight. That's what I think. Tonight.

Is there some kind of prerequisite for Yankee second basemen to run the bases like a nincompoop?

JM said...

Why is Marwin playing? Anyone?

TheWinWarblist said...

Marwin? Marwin?

Doug K. said...

Hinkey

Apparently he didn't know the rule but what's odd is that in a lifetime of playing BB every day since he was let's say seven years old, it never came up.

Hinkey Haines said...

Yankees are playing double-play bingo tonight. I’m thinking strikeout-caught stealing is next.

I’ve been remiss in not mentioning lately how much I hate Donaldson. I hate the way the looks, I hate the way he sounds, I hate the way he acts, I hate the way he plays. I hate the way he arrogantly leaves all his shit at the plate for someone else to pick up after he strikes out, which happens at least once a game.

Platoni said...

I'm just here waiting on double play #4

JM said...

There.

Platoni said...

And there it is

JM said...

Why is Marwin playing again?

JM said...

I agree, 999. Just repellent.

TheWinWarblist said...

Marwin availing himself of the opportunity to make more than one out per at bat. Because he is a preening taint blister.


Fuck.

TheWinWarblist said...

Platoni, it was not a long wait.

Platoni said...

BTR, I want to take your comment, put it on a fancy frame and hang it next to my wedding photos.

borntorun999 said...

Platoni, not quite sure your wife would see it the same way!

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

This is so very painful. Is Sevy going to throw a complete game? 'Cause we ain't got crap all in the bullpen.

JM said...

6 DPs.

Doug K. said...

Six double plays!!!

borntorun999 said...

Higashioka is slower than a turtle with a broken leg

JM said...

Do I hear seven? We can still do it. Maybe eight.

JM said...

7 is the record, Head sez.

JM said...

Well said.

Platoni said...

Yeah, six is cool and all, but can they hit for the DP cycle?

JM said...

Cabrera can play anywhere. But can he pitch?

JM said...

Sevvy pitching a hell of a game.

JM said...

So, Judge. No home run record. No Triple Crown. Maybe lost MVP in the process.

JM said...

Donaldson blows.

JM said...

Uh oh. Castro.

JM said...

He'll blow this lead.

JM said...

Very nearly did.

borntorun999 said...

Hicks didn’t know how many outs. Glad to see his head is totally up his ass. What a an ass-clown.

Doug K. said...

JM

He'll be the MVP.

Tough to watch the guy before and the guy after Judge both get HRs.

What's that about?

Carl J. Weitz said...

Tonight....Lucky Louie Looked Large!

AboveAverage said...

There IS one more home run in Judge’s bat.

You’ll see.

Doug K. said...

Record tying DP coming up?

JM said...

I'm just cringing at what he might not do.

Doug K. said...

So close! Almost saw history.

JM said...

Argh. We're stuck at six.

JM said...

Marwin sucks, HR or not.

Doug K. said...

Man - That sucked

JM said...

This ad for the store for short guys. Is that really a problem? Any short guys here?

borntorun999 said...

Higashioka and Gonzalez spoiling any chance for Judge to bat again.
Gonzalez was especially egregious swinging at the first pitch, not even trying to work the count.

JM said...

Yes. Because he sucks.

JM said...

Win!!!

JM said...

Seagar must be so happy he left LA to be on the Rangers.

ranger_lp said...

@JM…it is a problem…and watch that short stuff…


🙂

TheWinWarblist said...

It seems Effross is the closer tonight.

ranger_lp said...

Yankees Win!!!

TheWinWarblist said...

Thuhuh-UHUHUHUHUH Yankees win but did NOT HIT INTO 7 DOUBLE PLAYS!!!!

borntorun999 said...

I’m as stretched out as a 27 y/o Scranton Rail Riders starter waiting to be called up.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Had to do a Zoom thing. Lasted the whole game, somehow! Since when do they play at this breackneck pace?

I say make Sevvy the closer for the postseason.

So, so happy that Stanton got his 30th. Hurrah.

edb said...

I hope you are correct.

The Archangel said...

Stanton will be our Chris Davis.
Flailing at pitches in an embarrassing fashion for two years, bat under .200, lead the league in Ks and then get cut and have his salary wired to his island home.
