½: Friday Night Yanks-Twins, Sox-Royals Mashup

Two east coast juggernauts separated by mere percentage points battle two teams from the heartland. Andrew Miller takes on Jeff Francis in KC while Phil Hughes faces Kevin Slowey in Minny. I’m a bit jammed up so the gamers are getting jammed together as well.
Have a great weekend and comment away.

  • Dusty Two-Sacks IBB’d for the second time in the game.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 8:50 pm
  • And Lavarnway up with bases loaded, two outs for the second time.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 8:51 pm
  • Aaaaand for the second time he leaves ‘em loaded.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 8:52 pm
  • It’s gonna be real embarrassing if the Royals can get a run from a leadoff double and the Sox can’t manage the same.

  • Ah, and Crawford scores just as I post. Nice.

  • Happy to see 8 hits, even though they haven’t added up to much.

  • Lavarnway finally gets his first ML hit.
    That’s the Sox 10th hit, might be a slump-busters night.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • Carl up now, 2 on, 0 outs.
    He popped a bund foul on the first pitch.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • Salty blasts an 0-2 pitch for a 3-run bomb.
    5-1.

  • Clearing bases is better than leaving them messy……..

  • It would be nice if Crawford would hit more with Youk and Papi out, but if the 142-million-dollar man won’t, it’s kind of cool to have Salty homer to bring in Lowrie and Lavarnway.

    stuck_working August 19, 2011, 9:34 pm
  • Sox really should be leading 9-1 right now.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • 2 more LOBs for Lava boy. That’s 10 in the game for him, and 10 LOBs in the game for the Sox. 5-1.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 9:53 pm
  • Should be 8 LOBs for Lava, right and not all 10. Sweet that he has “Lava” for a nickname already.

    BillsBurgSF August 19, 2011, 10:00 pm
  • Abd…abd…that’s all Miller. Ace in for like his 2000th appearance…..

    BillsBurgSF August 19, 2011, 10:01 pm
  • 6-1 in Minny. Hughes is dealing and Muscle has 2 HR’s.
    Good times.

    krueg August 19, 2011, 10:01 pm
  • Ok, only 39th appearance, but he is closeing in on his high water mark for innings

    BillsBurgSF August 19, 2011, 10:03 pm
  • Miller goes 5.1, allows 3 hits, 2 BB, 1 run. Not bad.
    Ace is in now with 1 out in 6th, Gordon on 2nd.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 10:05 pm
  • Sorry. That’s 8 LOBs for Lava.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 10:05 pm
  • Aviles has been a nice pick-up. A much better trade than George “The Boomer” Scott for Tom Poquette.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 10:32 pm
  • 7.2 innings…1 run. Solid outing by Phil.

    krueg August 19, 2011, 10:32 pm
  • Ells gets popped in the back, stays in but come out for bot 8.
    D-Mac moves to CF, Reddick in to play RF.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 19, 2011, 10:34 pm
  • I almost feel bad for the Twins. Almost.

    attackgerbil August 19, 2011, 10:46 pm
  • I love that Aceves gets the save there. How does anyone take that stat seriously?

    stuck_working August 19, 2011, 10:57 pm
  • I don’t.
    Foam finger for one more night.
    Sweet.

  • AJ getting lit up in the 1st inning.
    SURPRISE!!!!
    It’s not even worth watching his starts.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:23 pm
  • 0-1.
    Wild pitch.
    Guy on 3rd scores.
    Fucking Groundhog Day.

    Game.
    Fuck this.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:28 pm
  • 0-3.
    My hatred for AJ is unhealthy.
    They are paying a guy $82 million to lose games. All he does is lose games. Minus the 2 good starts he had in ’09. So $82 million for 2 wins.
    Wow.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:42 pm
  • HR, 3 doubles…3 walks…42 pitches…1 out in the 2nd…

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:46 pm
  • 0-4.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:50 pm
  • krueg, just know that as much as you hate AJ, we all enjoy watching you hate him. And so the universe stays in balance.

    stuck_working August 20, 2011, 7:51 pm
  • Why do they not pull him?
    2 outs in the 2nd, 51 pitches, 4 runs, rockets hit on every at bat?

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:52 pm
  • Another walk…
    I just cannot understand this. Do you wait until he gives up 8? 9? How many until this game is over Joe???
    PULL HIS STUPID REDNECK ASS NOW!!!! IT’S STILL A GAME AT THIS POINT????
    Does he have pictures of management with male dwarves or something???? HOW IS THIS ALLOWED TO CONTINUE GAME AFTER GAME AFTER GAME AFTER GAME????

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:55 pm
  • Another wild pitch lets the runner get to 3rd…

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:57 pm
  • Ayala is up in the bullpen…

    krueg August 20, 2011, 7:57 pm
  • Walks the fucking bases loaded…
    FINALLY here comes Joe…
    ANd ASSHOLE BURNETT STARES DOWN GIRARDI…THEN CALLS HIM AN ASSHOLE AS HE’S WALKING OFF THE MOUND????
    This is fucking incredible. Blow your top you stupid fucking asshole and get suspended. PLEASE FOLLOW YOUR NATURE AND DO SOMETHING REDNECKY AND GET SUSPENDED??? PLEASE????
    What a piece of shit.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 8:00 pm
  • I literally feel like we have a chance now.
    Girardi followed him into the tunnel. Hopefully he chewed his ass out.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 8:02 pm
  • 0-5.
    Thanks AJ.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 8:05 pm
  • Walked in that run by the way.
    Kubel. Might be turning this game off now.

    krueg August 20, 2011, 8:06 pm
  • 0-7.
    Later

    krueg August 20, 2011, 8:07 pm
  • 1-7.

  • K, you should know that even as a Sox fan, I didn’t come here after seeing the score out of pure schadenfreude……..
    Your execrations never disappoint! Never get tired of it.
    It’s like reading HL Mencken on chiropractors, or WJ Bryan.
    Even if the Yanks win the Series after beating the Sox in an appalling ALCS, it will be worth tuning in for commentary on the occasional AJ, JoPo or Cervelli appearance.

  • Bad Wakefield suddenly in the 6th
    4-2
    Tito is on it…….. Albers up
    4-3
    There goes #200

    dabize August 20, 2011, 9:00 pm
  • Bad Albers too
    4-7 KC

    dabize August 20, 2011, 9:16 pm
  • AJ is an unmitigated disaster. Let’s see Cashman repeat that pathetic justification for him again after tonight’s fiasco. He is our SIXTH best starter and I am convinced that this is only because nobody else has been called up from Scranton to make a spot start. A complete and utter failure.

    IronHorse (YF) August 20, 2011, 9:39 pm
  • DAMNIT!!!! DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN
    SHIT
    Damn it to hell.
    I just saw the score and saw that an A. Burnett was pitching for the Twins. I thought the Yankees had got rid of AJ in the middle of the game and the Twins picked him up. Got my damn hopes up.
    Oh…and this score sucks.
