Game Thread: A’s vs Yankees, Sunday September 23

Today’s game almost seems like a formality after yesterday’s marathon of come backs and tension. But that’s the beauty of baseball. They do this everyday. The Yankees used every pitcher they have yesterday, so the team needs Hiroki Kuroda to give them some length, desperately. The A’s will counter with A.J. Griffin. The Yankees have also quietly turned a page. They’ve won seven in a row and are 9-1 over their last ten. Unfortunately, Baltimore is right their with them, just a game behind. Enjoy.

    Where the hell are those darts, I want to throw them at Nunez.

    Isn’t that an infield fly? The YES guys never tell you if the infield fly rule is called.

      It must have been, but TBS was mum as well.

    A-Rod avoids, for now, the Golden Sombrero.

        The fans should boo Kay

    Little Gulps beat the Kitties. Helps out the other colored socks.

      Root for the Rays to get back in the wild card hunt. We need them to take those last three games of the season against the Orioles seriously.

      • Phil C

        Into each life a ray of sunshine will fall.

        Besides the owe the Yanks big time for last year.

    The Agenda for the bottom of the 9th:


    • Phil C

      walk, whack, win!

      • Professor Longnose

        Nicely phrased.

    • Phil C

      OK. I’ll go with your plan!

  22. Phil C

    Balfour will blow this save. He’s saved 12 straight, so 13 is the jinx!

    Besides, I just sacrificed a chicken.

  23. Professor Longnose

    Come on, Ichi, get that walk!

  24. Professor Longnose


  25. Professor Longnose

  26. Professor Longnose

    An infinity of dangness.

    • Phil C

    Let’s hope the Yanks can have a big gulp of Mini Soda starting tomorrow. Three of them.
