Channeling Don Adams: O’s-Yanks Gamer III

The good news in last night’s loss by the Yankees was a dominant peformance by David Phelps. Already down 4-2, Phil Hughes allowed a homer to Nolan Reimold and a double to Nate McLouth to lead off the fourth. Girardi pulled Hughes for Phelps, who coaxed a weak grounder from Manny Machado. McLouth advanced to third, but was stranded there as Phelps punched out Nick Markakis looking and got Adam Jones to chase for the second of Phelps’ six strikeouts on the day. Pretty sweet stuff. The three runs scored by the Yankees may not seem impressive but the offense seemed to really be clicking, just missing it by that much.

ESPN Sunday Night Baseball features the Yankees hosting the Orioles in the final game of the set, with Wei-Yin Chen getting the start for the Birds, and Hiroki Kuroda on the mound for the Bombers. Better watch while you can, because there’s no game tomorrow and starting Tuesday, the Diamondbacks visit the Bronx. Stupid Interleagues. WHY? Get those #$(*@#& snakes off of this @#($*&@ League. I guess if they have to do something as moronic as AL East-NL West interleague, might as well do it in April. But for the love of Jeebus, do it in ARIZONA.

Lineups when I find them, comment away.

  • Yeah, the “interleague every day” stuff is not my favorite. But the 15-per-league math demands it. And I do prefer 5 teams in every division, for whatever reason. Seems a bit more fair or something.

    So I really liked Get Smart as a kid. Haven’t watched it as a grownup. I wonder if I would find more of the jokes funny or roll my eyes over and over again (or both). That 99 lady was pretty good-looking as I recall.
