Chien-Ming Wang, Your Start Is Calling: Yanks-O’s Gamer II

  • Jeter is smacking the ball okay thus far. That’s a plus, at least.

  • Teixeira still a big 0-fer.

    Lar April 8, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • I don’t know who this Uehara guy is, but his breakdown is awful – 8 strikes, 9 balls, and yet the Yanks are not doing anything.

    Lar April 8, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • And as soon as I say that he gets two quick strikes on Matsui.

    Lar April 8, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • Wang is so boring, I have no idea why this makes you excited Gerb. Honestly, he might be the most boring pitcher around.

    SF April 8, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • Isn’t boring what you want a in a pitcher?

    Lar April 8, 2009, 7:16 pm
  • A 1-2-3 after a Jeter walk. Yawns.

    Lar April 8, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • > I have no idea why this makes you excited Gerb.
    Partially because he’s so frustrating to everyone who tries to analyze him, but mostly it’s because of the Asian brotherhood!

  • Sorry about the whitespace… working on it. Had the silly thing in reverse. Or something.

    attackgerbil April 8, 2009, 7:22 pm
  • I don’t care to analyze him at all, I just find him dull.

    SF April 8, 2009, 7:39 pm
  • > I just find him dull.
    I prefer “workman-like”. Maybe “unflappable.”
    Better than fist pumps on strikeouts and step-dancing with a cardboard beer case on his head?

    attackgerbil April 8, 2009, 7:43 pm
  • But he does appear a bit flappable.

    attackgerbil April 8, 2009, 7:46 pm
  • Mmmm. Beer.

    SF April 8, 2009, 7:50 pm
  • I just came home. To a 5 run inning. Ouch.

    Lar April 8, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • Check that, I find this version of Wang quite enjoyable.

    SF April 8, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • Do you find it as enjoyable as we find this version of Jon Lester? Let us bask in our mutually delicious schadenfreude, SF.

  • JEETAH!!!!!!!
    Come back on Passover?
    Here comes Tex, 7-4, man on. DOUBLE FOR TEX!!!!
    7-5.
    TIE RUN AT THE PLATE.

  • It’s too bad they gave up 7 runs..

    Lar April 8, 2009, 10:02 pm
  • Godzilla chases on 2-1, pops out to 3rd. Game over. Damn.
    0-2. Panic time?

    YF April 8, 2009, 10:04 pm
  • No panic yet. The SP isnt gonna be like this all season and the bats came alive which was nice to see.
    At least the Lester and the Sox got lit up. Im sure they arent panicking up there nor should we….

    sam-YF April 8, 2009, 10:16 pm
  • Well, it’s a 3-headed race so..

    Lar April 8, 2009, 10:49 pm
  • As much as I love my Birds, let’s not get too excited. There are still a lot of kinks to get worked out and trust me, I’m sure the usual All-Star Break meltdown will happen this season.
