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.

Pettitte is fucking garbage…getting rocked in the first. Asshole. 0-2 and they’re not done. game.
HE GOT ANOTHER OUT!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! NICE JOB DOUCHE!!!
We got out of the inning. awesome. Let’s see if the bats are going to show up today for once…
BALK!!!! 2nd and 3rd no outs…COME ON TEIXERIA!!!
Teix 3 run shot.
3 RUN HR FOR TEIXEIRA!!!!! 3-2 GOOD GUYS!!!!
krueg, i appreciate your enthusiasm, i really do. But as a favor, please back off the profanities a bit. Thanks.
BACK-TO-BACK JACKS!!!! ANOTHER ABOMB!!!! 4-2!!!
arod goes yard.
OK…sorry. I’m out.
that arod shot was deep.
Perkins ERA this game is impossibly high. Impossibly.
Swisher just misses one.
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.
No worries. Just asking that you curb it, and I appreciate you being open to the suggestion. Thanks again.
Swish goes to the track, then Cano hits one off the end of the bat with crazy english for a grd.
Melky with the RBI single. Perkins is not long for this game.
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’
That was crazy…pinball RBI for Cervelli.
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.
Jeter singles for the second time in the inning.
Watched the Memorial Cup game this weekend and Tyler Myers looks great…should be a Sabre next year!!!
Jeter another hit!!!!
Glen Perkins is the very picture of FML.
It’s knuckleball time! Should be interesting to watch a non-Wake knuckleballer.
Mauer is having issues with the knuckle, but Damon is down 0-2.
“We’ve replaced the starting pitcher with a RA Dickey, a knuckleball specialist. Let’s see if Joe Mauer notices.”
Inning over on a come-backer by Damon, but six runs across through one. Sweet.
Hopefully they flatten out like Wake’s when he pitches against us and they pound them…
Yes, let’s see the rest of the lineup poleaxe them like Jeter did.
I betcha Mark Teixeira smirked at that HBP.
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.
Punto with a perfect perfect bunt.
Nice hustle Pettitte you old mother_______. not.
Cano! Wow, what a play.
Great play Robbie!!!
Watch Pettitte let them right back in it…
Cano. He’s with leather.
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.
Just as long as no one steals home on Pettitte today.
See Cash???? THAT’S HOW YOU BLOCK A PITCH!!!! Idiot…
CAPTAIN CLUTCH STILL HAS IT!!!!
6-3 ends the inning. Gotta love Cervelli on that ball in the dirt.
Only Jacoby Ellsbury has stolen home in the history of the modern era of baseball. Don’t you watch ESPN?
Time for some more runs…bring it.
Dude…negative reinforcement. It’s my M.O.
ARod is hitting the ball now…I much prefer that to the wind power.
Now if Swish can get his ____ together…
> 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.
Dickey with leather.
Do you guys think it would hurt worse to:
A) Have a fastball tipped off your face behind the plate
B) Take a slapper off your dome in goal in hockey???
Dickey’s knuckle balls are tantalizing to the Yanks sluggers who are taking big rips at them but not doing much.
Good job Johnny!!!
Yeah…that’s what I thought too. B
Big K for Andy…
Robinson Cano is not impressed by the knuckleball.
Mauer should be in pinstripes…
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.
Pettitte hangs a curve right over the middle and Cuddyer deposits it way out past left center.
Nice job Andy…you geriatric co______er!!!!!
Nolan Ryan in his prime fastball vs. Al Macinnis in his prime slapshot????
CERVELLI! wow wow wow.
CERVELLI IS A BEAST!!!!
SIT DOWN Nick Punto!!
PENA!!!! SUPER SWEET PLAY!!!! That kid can play some D…how long until he is the full time SS????
Now that is some bang-bang balling.
Pena, that was beautiful.
Hitting me in the face? I’d be dead either way.
For some reason I think MacInnis’ slap shot is way scarier.
AND THE KID CAN HIT!!!!
Ugh, Captain Derek GIDP strikes again.
> in the face
Yeah, true. One shot from either and I’m a blubbering mess, eating from a straw for a year.
that was close…
Joe Mauer showing some warning track power…
Pettitte sucks rear end…
…but makes a great play.
Haha, hilarious post title.
Nick Punto bunt FAIL.
NOT VERAS!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
4 pitch walk…nice job douche.
Going to the gym…don’t want to watch Veras blow the game.
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.
Tex is on fire!
He hit a MONSTER JAM! (to continue the NBA Jam theme)
Man, the top of this lineup is tough to get through when these guys are going like this.
Swisher – hitting the ball hard the last couple games, just cannot get a break…
lol “COKE CLASSIC” for Phil
MLB’s apparent indifference to the way all this strike zone technology has exposed how piss poor MLB umpires are really perplexes me.
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.
Walks the lead-off man. Brilliant. Start taping your arm together Mo…
Tex with the diving stab. How different is the fielding over there this year sans greasy fatman
RBI groundout – 2 outs, tying run at the plate……….
If he walks Gomez I will flip
walks him. you must be kidding me.
Holy shit. Walking double is what that is. This ‘pen is SHIT. Girardi is working with nothing out there.
Brett Tomko is up. striking fear in the Twins’ hearts I’m sure
I hate this pen. Hate i so much. Throw an effing strike
3-1 on Redmond now. How much you wanna bet Redmond gets into a grooed fastball?
We’re one strike and one day away from getting Bruney back. please.
3-2. Both balls Redmond took for strikes were fatties.
phew! 4-game sweepage. And with a bullpen that simply blows.
Well Redmond bails him out by rolling over on ball four…SWEEP BABY!
6 in a row. Awesome.
Thanks IH!!! It’s fun and therapeutic!! Plus, it’s better than going out in Memphis and getting stabbed…
