Cream Pie Facial: Twins-Yanks Gamer IV

Best not to google the title. What I mean is that there have been a lot of pies being smashed in Yankees' faces lately, with all the late-inning heroics going on and all. Oh well, male bonding is a strange, maybe even semi-erotic affair. As our boys build team chemistry or whatever this thing is that happens when a team is going well, we might as well enjoy the theatrics. Tonight, the Yanks go for a sweep against the  Twinkies (hmm, strange this baseball language's occasional overlap with other discourses). This is your thread for comment.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • We got out of the inning. awesome. Let’s see if the bats are going to show up today for once…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:20 pm
  • Jeter single…sweet.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:23 pm

  • Teix 3 run shot.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:25 pm
  • 3 RUN HR FOR TEIXEIRA!!!!! 3-2 GOOD GUYS!!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:26 pm
  • krueg, i appreciate your enthusiasm, i really do. But as a favor, please back off the profanities a bit. Thanks.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • BACK-TO-BACK JACKS!!!! ANOTHER ABOMB!!!! 4-2!!!

  • arod goes yard.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • OK…sorry. I’m out.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:29 pm
  • that arod shot was deep.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:29 pm
  • Perkins ERA this game is impossibly high. Impossibly.

    Nick-YF May 18, 2009, 7:30 pm
  • Swisher just misses one.

    Nick-YF May 18, 2009, 7:30 pm
  • Swisher going for three in a row, but it wasn’t meant to be.
    Swisher is really, really struggling. So is Cano. Good thing Tex and Damon have been on fire. Slumps are going to happen. The mark of a good lineup is when other step up at the same time.

    AndrewYF May 18, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • > OK…sorry
    No worries. Just asking that you curb it, and I appreciate you being open to the suggestion. Thanks again.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • Swish goes to the track, then Cano hits one off the end of the bat with crazy english for a grd.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:32 pm
  • Melky with the RBI single. Perkins is not long for this game.

    Nick-YF May 18, 2009, 7:34 pm
  • No problem…I’m in the penalty box. 10 minute misconduct. I didn’t think we were really allowed to swear like that but no one stopped me so I figured it was cool. My negative reinforcement may not work as well PG as it did XXX…just sayin’

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:38 pm
  • That was crazy…pinball RBI for Cervelli.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:39 pm
  • I understand completely and certainly have dropped my share of bombs, and will again to be certain.
    In the mean time, the Yankees have batted around. Fun stuff.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:41 pm
  • Jeter singles for the second time in the inning.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:43 pm
  • Watched the Memorial Cup game this weekend and Tyler Myers looks great…should be a Sabre next year!!!
    Jeter another hit!!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:43 pm
  • Glen Perkins is the very picture of FML.
    It’s knuckleball time! Should be interesting to watch a non-Wake knuckleballer.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 7:43 pm
  • Mauer is having issues with the knuckle, but Damon is down 0-2.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • “We’ve replaced the starting pitcher with a RA Dickey, a knuckleball specialist. Let’s see if Joe Mauer notices.”

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • Inning over on a come-backer by Damon, but six runs across through one. Sweet.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:45 pm
  • Hopefully they flatten out like Wake’s when he pitches against us and they pound them…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:45 pm
  • Yes, let’s see the rest of the lineup poleaxe them like Jeter did.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 7:46 pm
  • I betcha Mark Teixeira smirked at that HBP.

    AndrewYF May 18, 2009, 7:49 pm
  • Andy has some breathing room and gets an out but then drops a curve on Gomez foot, and it looks like it’s smarting pretty good.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:49 pm
  • Punto with a perfect perfect bunt.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:50 pm
  • Nice hustle Pettitte you old mother_______. not.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Cano! Wow, what a play.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Great play Robbie!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Watch Pettitte let them right back in it…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • Cano. He’s with leather.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • He’s just pitching to the score, like Great Pitchers do.
    In the same spirit, Gardenhire is trying to erase a 4-run deficit with small ball. It’s the Right Way to Play.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • Just as long as no one steals home on Pettitte today.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • See Cash???? THAT’S HOW YOU BLOCK A PITCH!!!! Idiot…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • CAPTAIN CLUTCH STILL HAS IT!!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • 6-3 ends the inning. Gotta love Cervelli on that ball in the dirt.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 7:56 pm
  • Only Jacoby Ellsbury has stolen home in the history of the modern era of baseball. Don’t you watch ESPN?

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 7:56 pm
  • Time for some more runs…bring it.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 7:58 pm
  • Dude…negative reinforcement. It’s my M.O.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • ARod is hitting the ball now…I much prefer that to the wind power.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • Now if Swish can get his ____ together…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:01 pm
  • > Don’t you watch ESPN?
    Sure! Poker and women’s pole vaulting. Both of which happen to dovetail nicely with Nick’s naughty thread title.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:01 pm
  • Dickey with leather.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:03 pm
  • SIDEBAR:
    Do you guys think it would hurt worse to:
    A) Have a fastball tipped off your face behind the plate
    or
    B) Take a slapper off your dome in goal in hockey???

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:04 pm
  • Dickey’s knuckle balls are tantalizing to the Yanks sluggers who are taking big rips at them but not doing much.

    Nick-YF May 18, 2009, 8:06 pm
  • Good job Johnny!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:08 pm

    Nick-YF May 18, 2009, 8:08 pm
  • krueg, easy.
    B

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:10 pm
  • Yeah…that’s what I thought too. B

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:11 pm
  • Big K for Andy…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • Robinson Cano is not impressed by the knuckleball.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 8:15 pm
  • Mauer should be in pinstripes…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:20 pm
  • Hockey puck: 6oz., cold hard rubber, and the best snipers are over 100mph
    Baseball: 5.2ish ounces, leather with a core that compresses, and very few pitchers touch 100mph. Then again, I don’t know about what angular velocities may be imparted by a bat on a tipped ball but it is a deflection of the initial trajectory, which makes me think it must be a reduction in the kinetic energy. Hmm.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:20 pm
  • Pettitte hangs a curve right over the middle and Cuddyer deposits it way out past left center.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:25 pm
  • Nice job Andy…you geriatric co______er!!!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:25 pm
  • Nolan Ryan in his prime fastball vs. Al Macinnis in his prime slapshot????

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:27 pm
  • CERVELLI! wow wow wow.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:28 pm
  • CERVELLI IS A BEAST!!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:28 pm
  • SIT DOWN Nick Punto!!

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 8:28 pm
  • PENA!!!! SUPER SWEET PLAY!!!! That kid can play some D…how long until he is the full time SS????

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • Now that is some bang-bang balling.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • Pena, that was beautiful.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:30 pm
  • Hitting me in the face? I’d be dead either way.
    For some reason I think MacInnis’ slap shot is way scarier.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 8:31 pm
  • AND THE KID CAN HIT!!!!

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:32 pm
  • Ugh, Captain Derek GIDP strikes again.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 8:34 pm
  • > in the face
    Yeah, true. One shot from either and I’m a blubbering mess, eating from a straw for a year.

    attackgerbil May 18, 2009, 8:38 pm
  • that was close…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • Joe Mauer showing some warning track power…

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • Pettitte sucks rear end…

    krueg May 18, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • …but makes a great play.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 9:24 pm

    krueg May 18, 2009, 9:25 pm
  • 4 pitch walk…nice job douche.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • Going to the gym…don’t want to watch Veras blow the game.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • Veras is crap. Lucky Gomez bailed him out there. I am still angry about that BS called strike 3 on Jeter last inning though. Ball was in the other batters’ box. The fact that we’ve won the first 3 and are leading in this game doesn’t change the UNASSAILABLE TRUTH that the umps have een atrocious this series.

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 9:36 pm
  • Tex is on fire!

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • He hit a MONSTER JAM! (to continue the NBA Jam theme)

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 9:39 pm
  • Man, the top of this lineup is tough to get through when these guys are going like this.

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 9:40 pm
  • Swisher – hitting the ball hard the last couple games, just cannot get a break…

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 9:41 pm
  • lol “COKE CLASSIC” for Phil
    Clutch K.

    doug YF May 18, 2009, 10:05 pm
  • MLB’s apparent indifference to the way all this strike zone technology has exposed how piss poor MLB umpires are really perplexes me.

    Brien Jackson May 18, 2009, 10:09 pm
  • Past 3am in London from where I’ve listened to the first 3 games of this crazy series and occacionally checked in on the all-kreug-all-the-time commentary (way to carry the flag man!!).
    Would be nice to see this done without turning to Mo, whose arm is about to fall off.

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:24 pm
  • Walks the lead-off man. Brilliant. Start taping your arm together Mo…

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:26 pm
  • Tex with the diving stab. How different is the fielding over there this year sans greasy fatman

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:28 pm
  • RBI groundout – 2 outs, tying run at the plate……….

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:29 pm
  • If he walks Gomez I will flip

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • walks him. you must be kidding me.

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • Holy shit. Walking double is what that is. This ‘pen is SHIT. Girardi is working with nothing out there.

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • Brett Tomko is up. striking fear in the Twins’ hearts I’m sure

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:33 pm
  • I hate this pen. Hate i so much. Throw an effing strike

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 10:34 pm
  • 3-1. Lord.

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:35 pm
  • 3-1 on Redmond now. How much you wanna bet Redmond gets into a grooed fastball?

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 10:35 pm
  • We’re one strike and one day away from getting Bruney back. please.

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • 3-2. Both balls Redmond took for strikes were fatties.

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • phew! 4-game sweepage. And with a bullpen that simply blows.

    IronHorse May 18, 2009, 10:38 pm
  • Well Redmond bails him out by rolling over on ball four…SWEEP BABY!

    Mark - YF May 18, 2009, 10:38 pm
  • 6 in a row. Awesome.

    krueg May 18, 2009, 10:46 pm
  • Thanks IH!!! It’s fun and therapeutic!! Plus, it’s better than going out in Memphis and getting stabbed…
