  • I won’t be able to watch it but the Royals have some hitters now. Hosmer is especially exciting. And they have a lot more in the pipeline.

  • Two out magic.
    Gardy triples, Jeter drives him in.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 7:52 pm
  • Back to the Chief!

  • Fucking Melky…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 7:58 pm
  • Leadoff single for Tex…come on ARod…let’s go brother!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:03 pm
  • Man ARod is fucking horrible right now…like really, really, really bad.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:05 pm
  • A-Rod is lost. It’s crazy he went from crazy awesome to crazy terrible with no in-between.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 8:07 pm
  • Using the word crazy three times in one sentence is also…insane.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 8:08 pm
  • Cano singles…1st and 2nd…1 out…
    Unfortunately, here comes Swish and Hip Hip…the automatic out machines.
    DP maybe?

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:09 pm
  • Swisher is worthless. Trade him, get Ichiro.
    2 outs. At least it wasn’t a DP.
    But here comes Hip Hip so the inning is over.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:13 pm
  • Told you. Fucking pathetic.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:15 pm
  • The Chief is hanging in there…great grab to save a couple runs by Swish.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:27 pm
  • Where the hell has our offense gone??? This is ridiculous!!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:30 pm
  • It’s that complete on or off shit. Guys are either raking or swinging toothpicks with no in-between. So our hot hitters get on, and then the cold ones fail to deliver.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 8:33 pm
  • Bases loaded…
    2 outs…
    It’s time.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:39 pm
    There it is big guy!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • “It’s time” is right.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • You may want to think about running out of the box Swish…you ass. A single off the wall??? Joe needs to do something about that bullshit. ARod does it too…
    Have you ever seen Jeter not run hard??? Never. Assholes.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 8:56 pm
  • Well…the two worthless brothers strike again. 3-0 count to a K, plus thrown out running by a fucking mile.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:02 pm
  • 1-2-3 inning by our awesome offense…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:02 pm
  • Robertson on in relief in a tough spot.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 9:12 pm
  • Throw more strikes, Davey.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 9:18 pm
  • Enter the “strength” of our team…our bullpen to blow another fucking lead.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:19 pm
  • Robertson SUCKS!!!!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:20 pm
  • Hey gents. Touchy part of the game here with bases jacked, 2-0 count, clinging to a 2-run lead…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:20 pm
  • Against the bottom of the fucking Royals order I might add…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:21 pm
  • Hey IH…we are playing our typical flat game, not taking advantage of our chances to score…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:21 pm
  • K.
    One more dickie.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:23 pm
  • Strikes, moterf***er!! Can you throw them?!?

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 9:23 pm
  • I love the passion dusty. Love it.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:24 pm
  • 97 MPH???? Wow. ONE MORE!!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:24 pm
  • Did you get the house back in order IH??? Maybe install a lightning rod or something?

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:26 pm
  • I didn’t want to post this until he got out of it: I really like Roberston this year. He has been brought in to some really sticky spots and seems to come through most of the time.
    So-Mo time…if Yanks can’t add a few in the meantime.

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:27 pm
  • It’s working, he’s not throwing as many balls now. Walks piss me off almost more than anything. Probably the only thing that angers me more is Rafael Soriano. Just him in general.

    DustyDrB - YF May 10, 2011, 9:27 pm
  • K!!!!!!!! THANK SCIENCE!!!!!
    (bad call by the way, but we’ll take it)

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:27 pm
  • Robertson seems to do his best work with the bases loaded…ala 2009 playoffs.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • “ala 2009 playoffs”
    I’ll take that…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:29 pm
  • GO TRIBE!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:30 pm
  • He wasn’t even close to swinging…horrible call.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • Make-up call on that outside pitch?
    GO JAYS!!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:32 pm

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:32 pm
  • Joba up…No Soriano?

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • I’m sorry to say this so often, but I am so depressed by the fact that John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman call these games. Their just horrible. Their voices – especially hers – canonly be described as “grating”. Their commentary is tired, completely lacking in any insight whatsoever, his missed calls are frustratignly frequent, and on and on. This storied franchise seriously should have good, classy, smooth-talking commentators. These two honestly maybe the most clownish in all of baseball. I’m pissed about it because I follow about half my games each year on the radio rather than TV and I’m just fed up.

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:35 pm
  • I feel for you IH…I only listen to them in extreme circumstances. They are not good. There is no way around it.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:36 pm
  • Great Josh Johnson/Roy Halladay showdown. 2-1 Marlins in the 8th…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:36 pm
  • We need JJ…JJ and Ichiro and I’m good.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:37 pm
  • What’s the latest on your potential move up the east coast krueg??

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:37 pm
  • Joba vs Melky. Weird.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:38 pm
  • We aren’t close IH…my wife’s research is very complex and she isn’t sure yet when she’ll be done. We’ll have been here 4 years in August and we are hoping this time next year…but it depends on her research.
    We should have a better idea in about 6 months I think?

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:40 pm
  • 2 straight K’s for Joba…sexy.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:40 pm
  • Great inning…9 pitches, 2 K’s…1-2-3. Awesome.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:41 pm
  • Cool. Hope it works out the way you want it to.
    Joba has looked really good most of the year.
    Tack-on runs fellas…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:43 pm
  • If it works out the way we want it to…we will meet you at the Stadium for games, dogs and beers!!!

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:44 pm
  • ARod is due for an ABomb. Just sayin’…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:45 pm
  • Hughes gets a cortisone shot, feels like something got “relieved” in his shoulder, and is eyeing a mid-June return. Sure hope that doesn’t become a regular thing with him. Your body parts can only take a certain number of those shots over time.
    Teix walks. Come on A-Rod. Come back to the world of extra-base-hits…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:45 pm
  • Sounds like a plan krueg. A-Rod up 2-1…meatball coming up…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:46 pm
  • I’d call him K-Rod but that name is already taken.

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:47 pm
  • His swing just looks awful…I feel like maybe he hasn’t seen Cam in awhile or something???

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:47 pm
  • Can’t believe the Yankees most consistently strong performers have been their starting pitchers. Nice job by Freddy again today.

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:49 pm
  • Very strange indeed…but we’ll take it.
    Like we were saying leading up to the season, tread water until we trade for reinforcements.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:49 pm
  • Enter.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • (because Swish is an automatic out)

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • Yep. Swisher up. Teixeira growing roots over at first base.
    Sterling saying Swisher made the defensive play of the game saving a run. What happened? I joined late…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • There were men on 1st and 2nd…a liner was hit to shallow-ish RF and Swish made a nice diving catch…if he would have missed it, both runs would have scored easily…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:52 pm
  • Nice. Tks. And Swish Ks. bah.

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:53 pm
  • That was an easy call. Swisher can’t hit. I dig his attitude but I would prefer a good player…i.e. Ichiro Suzuki.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:53 pm
  • Toronto threatening to tack on in the 7th vs. Boston…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:54 pm
  • Love it.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:56 pm
  • Rays losing too…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:56 pm
  • Single…these games against these crap teams when the Stadium is dead scare me with Mo. These are the ones he blows sometimes.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:57 pm
  • Bases loaded vs. Aceves (thanks to 2 BBs and one HBP) in the 7th with 2 outs. Could break it open…

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 9:57 pm
  • Hopefully OUR game doesn’t get broken open…

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:58 pm
  • K.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 9:58 pm
  • DP!!!!!!

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 10:01 pm

    krueg May 10, 2011, 10:02 pm
  • Mo is a serious athlete. Understatement of the milennium.

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 10:02 pm
  • Wasn’t pretty from an offensive standpoint, but great pitching and some sweet D…I prefer runs in bulk but I’ll take it.

    krueg May 10, 2011, 10:03 pm
  • See ya krueg. Sox have tied it in the 8th. Might watch the end of that one. see ya later.

    IronHorse (YF) May 10, 2011, 10:06 pm
  • Later IH!
