    11-pitch first for Sabathia.

    Nice.

    • Professor Longnose

      Cano made that inning.

  2. Phil C

    I hope the Yanks make the Little Gulps choke on their own Mini Sodas.

    Love it that C-Dick is playing! Still waiting for a Gardy sighting.

    • Professor Longnose

      There’s no upside to this game. If they win, well, they should have swept. If they lose, they suck eggs right out of the chickens.

  3. Phil C

    I don’t know if folks have realized it, but in his last three starts Hughes has only given up 1 HR!

    • Professor Longnose

      Pitching in tough parks for home runs, no? Minnesota and Oakland, right?

      • Stacey Gotsulias

        They played in Oakland in July, right?

        • Professor Longnose

          Yeah, you’re right. He gave up no homers in Minnesota and Fenway. That’s pretty good.

          • Stacey Gotsulias

            Considering his history in Fenway, I was stll thrilled with his game if even it was against the Red Sox AAA team ;)

  4. Professor Longnose

    I never like injuries, Yankees or otherwise.

    • Phil C

      I missed that. What happened?

      • Professor Longnose

        Nothing obvious. Had some sort of eye trouble.

    • Phil C

      OK. I’m impressed with Gardenhire. I mean how many managers can sit in the dugout and notice a pitcher has left eye irritation?

  5. Phil C

    coulda, woulda, shoulda…..shut up Kay!

  6. Phil C

    So far it looks all of the highlights at 1st base are by Cano.

  7. Phil C

    Damn, Little Gulps strike first!

  8. Professor Longnose

    Steal!

  9. Phil C

    C-Dick hit. Now C-Dick run!

  10. Professor Longnose

    Double steal!

  11. Professor Longnose

    Bases loaded….

  12. Professor Longnose

    Looked misplayed live, but hard to tell on the replay.

    Either way, Robbie comes through.

  13. Phil C

    Robbie comes through!!

  14. Phil C

    Yee Haa!

  15. Professor Longnose

    Ans Swish still hot!

    Come on, get that 4th run in.

  16. Phil C

    Jane: See Dick score!

  17. Phil C

    Grandy X 3!

  18. Professor Longnose

    That was either a horrible throw or horrible cut-off coverage.

  19. Professor Longnose

    Granderson gets an RBI hit that isn’t a solo home run. Love to see that.

  20. Phil C

    Wild pitches couldn’t drag me away
    Wild, wild Wild pitches couldn’t drag me away
    Wild pitches couldn’t drag me away
    Wild, wild pitches, we’ll ride them some day

    Thanks Mick & Keith

  21. Phil C

    Well that move worked out well for Gardenhire. The best laid plans of Mice & Managers.

    Steinbeck is a little higher brow than Mick & Keith

    • Professor Longnose

      Michael Kay said it was bad for the Yankees because now they had lefty hitters in against a lefty pitcher.

      • Phil C

        That’s Kay. Always certain and often wrong.

  22. Phil C

    Nice shut down inning by CC!

    • Professor Longnose

      He looks good. But he has a tendency to lose it all of a sudden every once in a while.

      • Phil C

        Not today. He better not. If he does he’ll have to face my wrath.

        • Professor Longnose

          That would make me tremble.

  23. Phil C

    Bats gone quite. It also seems like the Yankees think they have enough runs.

    • Professor Longnose

      Can’t score 6 runs every inning. They get a pass through the 7th.

      • Phil C

        Six runs every 3rd inning would be sweet!

  24. Professor Longnose

    Aardvark! Aardvark!

    • Phil C

      There’s one that lives along a path that Katie walks. If I ask her if she’s seen Army the Aardvark she gets all excited and starts looking around for him.

      • Professor Longnose

        From oedilf.com:

        A ‘vark and a ‘wolf met a bard,
        And eagerly said to him, “Pard,
        Won’t you use us next time
        That you make up a rhyme?”
        “I can’t,” he replied, “You’re two aard.”

        • Phil C

          lol

        • Professor Longnose

          aardvark, aardwolf by alkahuna (Alan Turniansky)

  25. Professor Longnose

    Chavez!!

  26. Phil C

    Brain fart!

  27. Phil C

    Do you think Miggy will win the triple crown and lose the MVP vote?

    • Professor Longnose

      I don’t think he’ll win the triple crown. But if he does, I think, yeah, Trout would still be the favorite.

      • Phil C

        I think Trout should win. Not even close in WAR. A few days ago Trout 10.1, Cano 6.8, Miggy 6.4.

        • Professor Longnose

          Yeah, but a lot of that is defense, and defensive WAR isn’t accurate over one year.

          • Phil C

            True. But by any standard Trout is a MUCH better defender than Miggy. And his speed!

          • Professor Longnose

            I wouldn’t argue against Trout. But it’s really hard to quantify.

  28. Phil C

    A Gardy sighting!

  29. Phil C

    C-Dick trot!!!

  30. Professor Longnose

    Dickerson!

  31. Phil C

    If CC shuts them down the next 2 innings I wonder if we’ll see Aardvark, Aardsma, whatever his name is.

    • Professor Longnose

      That would be a good idea. We need to see what he has.

  32. Phil C

    Damn, in hockey that would have been a great kick save.

    • Professor Longnose

      Don’t know about you, but I’m REALLY glad that baseball isn’t hockey.

      • Phil C

        Don’t you like lock outs that totally disregard the fans? How about replacement umps? Wouldn’t that be fun?

        • Professor Longnose

          There were replacement umps at some point. The 70s?

  33. Professor Longnose

    I looked it up. Replacement umps in 1979, from opening day until May 18.

    • Phil C

      I remember them being used, but had no idea when.

  34. Professor Longnose

    Who’s coming in for the 9th?

  35. Professor Longnose

    Is the Orioles game on tonight on MLB or ESPN or somewhere other than extra innings?

    • Phil C

      No. ESPN is carry A’s v. Rangers.

      • Professor Longnose

        Boo! I’ll have to listen to the bird feed.

        • Phil C

          Strange afternoon, with no other games I’ve missed scoreboard watching!

          • Professor Longnose

            You can watch tonight.

            Fortunately, it was a nice win, so the scoreboard watching wasn’t needed to balance out a crushing loss.

          • Phil C

            I’ll prolly watch a DVD!

  36. Phil C

    What? Eppley Believe It or Not? I don’t.

    • Professor Longnose

      Disappointing.

      • Phil C

        It’s downright unimaginable. I guess Girardi & Cashman do not consider The Aardvark as a potential contributor.

  37. Phil C

    Game Ovah!!! Two game lead with 7 to go!

  38. Phil C

    Chat at ya tomorrow Professor!
