Comment away.. ← SexySixteen And Seventeen: Yanks-Jays Gamer III → Tough Act To Follow: Friday Night Sox vs Mariners Gamer 242 replies on “Friday Night Fandom: Twins-Yanks Gamer I” LET’S GO YANKEES!!! COME ON HUGHES!!! I need a win…sucky week at work. On beer #1. BIG K for Hughes!!! Nice. 1 out. Double play!!! Nice inning Phil!!!! beer #2. 1-2-3 inning for the good guys. Teixeria surprisingly K’s. Liriano looks good. Bummer. HR Morneau…0-1. Here we go again? Now Hughes can’t throw a strike… This kid is mentally frail. walk. Murmur of boo’s can be heard already… Ugh. I know Hughes is only 22 and all, but geez… Another walk…get him the fuck out of there. Bring in Aceves. How many times are they going to let him lose a game in the 2nd inning??? Blowing up his pitch count again…this is a nightmare. Teixeira is completely worthless. Just awful all around. Blows the scoop on the DP…fuck. Really need a DP…1st and 3rd with one out. Big K on his 37th pitch…ONE MORE PHIL!!!! About to walk the bases loaded…3-1 Ground out to Teixeira…got out of it. Whew. Of course, he’s already thrown 100 pitches through 2 innings. beer #3 Whew…uglier inning than it will appear in the linescore. Not looking forward to the top of the third. BIG CHEERS FOR AROD!!!! Let’s go ARod!!!! Me either…numbing myself with delicious beer!!! Lucky…I’m still at work, following on Gameday. Have one for me, will ya? :) Good eye ARod! Time for a HR, Godzilla! I’m keeping count for you on here so you will have some serious catching up to do when you get off!!! Matsui fielders choice…bah. No DP though. It looks like Toronto in the expensive seats… COME ON SWISH!!! Breakout time! Good eye Swish!!! 1st and 2nd…one out. LET’S GO CANO!!! quickly 0-2…crap. Lines out to LF…damn. 2 outs. MELKY TIME!!!!! Let’s go… Melky weak pop fly. Fuck. Man…I hate watching this kid pitch. walk #3 We have to score 10 runs to win when he pitches… WE GOT AN OUT AT SECOND!!! 1st…one out. it seems to me…and I’m NO expert, he’s afraid to pitch to contact. Judging from Gameday, he’s nibbling. Just throw strikes, damnit! Got another guy at 2nd…2 outs. Mauer on first and here comes the Canadian again…I can’t watch. See, your defense will back you up. (God, sounds like I’m coaching Little League again…) Damn Canucks. (kidding…I love Canadians) Got him to fly out! WHEW! Alright, time to score some runs!!! beer #4 Atta boy, Phil. Gotta give him credit, he’s hanging in there. Only 1-0. Time for the offense to get him a few runs and take off some of the pressure. I hate the Canadiens!!! HUGE Sabres fan…we suck. :) SO glad the Bruins lost last night!! Still at beer #0 here… :( Kevin Cash is an offensive beast!!! LET”S GO NETTLES!!! Get it together man… CASH WITH THE SQUIBBLER DOUBLE!!!! Well, if you want to talk hockey, I agree with you on Les Habs and the Bruins. My Rangers bring new meaning to the word “choke” though. :( Sweet…whatever it takes! Thanks for holding it down, krueg. ag is a Sabres fan as well. Once was a time when we didn’t suck. Those were good times. Working a double today. No beer, no ball, no joy. RISP for the Captain! Come on, Jeets…let’s get it done! Hey…at least you have a Cup. The Sabres are cursed…we’ll NEVER win it!!! You too AG??? Really??? Sweet bro!!! Are you from B-lo??? Got to come in at 3-1. Jeter walks!!! 1st and 2nd, NO OUTS!!! Come on Johnny!!! I still have my 1994 Stanley Cup T-Shirt…what’s left of it, anyway. > Are you from B-lo??? Nearby. Born and raised SW of Rachacha, about 60 miles out of Buff. Lucky bastard!!!! RALLY BEER!!!! #5 Damon JUST misses a double down the first base line… Went to lots of Amerks games. AH…from Roch. Gotcha. Tahoe’s and Honey Brown baby!!! K for Damon and he gets tossed. Fuck. That pitch was NOT a strike…no fucking way. Fuck you Ump!!! Fat bastard!!! Heading for home now to get caught up with Krueg’s beer count. Starting your second case, now, are you? :) Enjoy the game, all (both?) > Tahoe’s Like most, I have stories about some crazy nights that involve that place somehow. Traded Nick’s out for Empire Hots towards the end. TEIXEIRA WALKS….AROD TIME!!!! Ever have Duffs in Buffalo??? > Enjoy the game, all (both?) You guys too. Still working (actually on break at this moment). 0-2 on two horrible pitches to swing at…both balls. > Duffs Yep. Road trips to to Buffalo for Sabes/Bisons/shows at The Pier (Widespread Panic was awesome there). K…fuck. 3 bad swings. Boo’s raining from the crowd. Godzilla??? break’s over.. later! Teixeira and ARod…where rallies go to die. Matsui grounds out…0 fucking runs from the bases loaded and 1 out and the meat (in batting order only) or our order up. Fucking pathetic. Peace out AG! And here comes Phil “up the scoreboard for the opposition” Hughes to blow the game wide open… single, ground rule double…2nd and 3rd….no outs. Jesus Christ Hughes is fucking terrible. Here goes the game again… Kay says, “Twins are 0-3 with RISP”…nice jinx ass. Popped out to Cano is foul territory…1 out. Just showed Trump sitting with Bill O’Douchebag….pure evil. Walks the fucking bases loaded…great job Hughes. Send his sorry-ass back to AAA!!! FOR GOOD!!! Bullpen gets going…Aceves up. THANK GOD!!! We really need a DP… RBI single…Melky’s throw was offline. 0-2 RBI SAC fly…sorry. 2 outs, 1st and 2nd 80 fucking pitches through 3.2 innings…this kid is terrible. LIMIT THE DAMAGE ASSHOLE!!!! POP FLY!!!! THANK GOD!!!! Let’s go offense!!! Dickhead Hughes has only given up 2 so far…somehow. Swisher hits one down the third baseline…get’s gunned at 2nd. DIDN”T EVEN GET TAGGED!!! BS CALL!!! We suck. Cano pops out weakly to the infield. I am so fucking angry right now. 1-2-3 inning for the home side. Quickly and weakly goes down on 8 pitches. jesus fucking christ. We are going to lose this game. Another Friday night ruined….thanks overpaid douchebags. WHY ON EARTH IS HUGHES STILL PITCHING???? Teixeira with the diving stop…about fucking time loser. 2 quick outs. MORNEAU DESTROYS ANOTHER GARBAGE HUGHES PITCH…0-3. We are a fucking joke. Another hit… I seriously hate Phil Hughes. He has never shown dick in pinstripes…maybe the game he blew out his hamstring and started his Pavano like career. Overrated, sorry-ass piece of shit. Another over-hyped Yankee pitching prospect that completely and totally sucks ass. I think Cashman needs to be fired. Straight up let go now. He wouldn’t trade Hughes for Santana???? Out loser-ness starts at the top with Cashman. Period. JETER BOMB!!!! 1-3!!! COME ON YANKEES!!!! If we pull this game out I’m going to the casino’s tonight!!! Gardner single!!! Nice GARDEY!!!! STEAL 2ND!!!! BRING IT!!! Teixeria JUST misses a double down the 3rd baseline…damn. AGAIN…same place, so close… Teixeira grounds into a fucking double play…how awful is this fucking piece of shit??? Albala-douche-ho gets two quick outs…COME ON YANKEES!!! DADDY NEEDS TO GO TO THE CASINO!!! Bunt single to ARod…looked like an old man on that play. Stolen base…Cash throws like a girl. RALLY BEER #6!!! 1-2 count…COME ON ALBALA-DOUCHE-HO!!! full count… walk. 1st and 2nd…2 outs. This could be the game folks…well folk, really talking to myself! Richard Gere, Anthony Mason, Artie Lange and Kate Hudson in the crowd…can any of them pitch or hit??? Bill O’Reilly has mad liver spots…what a dick. BIG K FOR ALBALA-DOUCHE-HO!!!! NICE JOB!!! COME ON OFFENSE!!! COME ON AROD!!! 3-1 WALK!!! 1st…no outs. Godzilla time… popped out…1 out. Swish? Hit? Maybe? 2-0 count 2-2 count…christ k…fuck you swish. Cano? Do something? Hello? 2-0 count Swish 17 K’s in his last 34 AB’s…pathetic. He fits in nicely here. walk…1st and 2nd…2 outs. MELKY!!!! LET”S FUCKING GO!!!! Melky first pitch ground out…1-14 with 2 outs and RISP. Great job loser. HR Mauer…nice job Coke. Game. Peace out. GARDNER INSIDE-THE-PARK HR!!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that as a YF??? Teixeira double…COME ON AROD!!!! 2 outs…2-0 count…Tex on 2nd…COME ON AROD!!! 3-0 count… WALK!!!! 1st and 2nd…2outs…Godzilla up…LET’S GO YANKEES!!! BEER #7!!! WALKS BASES LOADED FOR…swish. fuck. This would be a great time to break out of your slump Nick. 0-2 both pitches right down the fucking middle… 1-2 2-2 weak fucking pop out…fuck you swish. you fucking blow. THEY HAVE HAD SO MANY FUCKING CHANCES TO SCORE!!! YOU FUCKING LOSERS!!! leadoff single…great. One more run and this puppy is over… Baldelli DHing tonight for the Sox. Papi riding the pine. A minor dust-up over Gomez inside the baseline and hitting Teixeira’s glove hand with his knee…Kay says, “Maybe this is the sort of thing that will get the Yankees fired up…” Yeah, as if these overpaid losers care about winning… No one here cares…and by no one, I mean me. I’m the only one here. Tapeworm fields the grounder and alertly makes the play at third…nice!!! Tapeworm walks him…1st and 2nd, 2 outs. Teixeira make the play…bottom of the 8th coming up. 2-4 COME ON YANKEES!!! 0 hits with RISP for the Yankees tonight…big surprise. Another bullshit call by the fucking ump…1-2 count to Cano. I noticed that, Krueg. But, hey, me watching Papi is like you watching the Yankees. Completely frustrating. What are you drinking, anyway? 3-2 count 10 LOBs. Jesus. I was messing with you bro…just being miserable because we suck ass. Drinking Labatt Blue Light… Cano pops out like the cocksucker he is…1 out. Nathan comes in next inning and it’s over. This team is a fucking joke. Beer #9 Melky gets a single…here comes the mighty Kevin Cash baby!!! hahaha watch the DP happen… One pitch = pop out to the infield. I hate these pieces of shit. I know, bro. And you might have to put up with me. No Sox thread yet. … Ellsbury leads off with a double to left-center. jeter…0-1 Cash is batting about the same he batted last year. score over there? Jeter pops out too…fuck you jeter. game, set, match. Boy, it sure was fun being .500 for one fucking day. Mariners put the Papi shift on the infield before they realize Drew is batting third. 0-0. 1 out. Ellsbury on third, top 1. Drew singles, 1-0. Must be nice to be awesome…I remember when we were awesome 10 years ago. Jason Fucking BAllgaYme batting. I remember that, too. It sucked for me. Even if they don’t score in the 9th..which they will against tapeworm, Nathan comes in for the bottom of the 9th and it’s over. I fucking hate this team. Teixeira, ARod, Matsui, Swish…fucking suck balls. They are a fucking joke. No heart, not-clutch…fucking losers. Bay walks. Lowell up. Some kid named Jagabagski pitching for Seattle. As a Buffalonian by birth…I can only imagine how awesome the last 4 years must have been for you guys. The Sabres will never win the Cup…ever. Krueg, you’re just one Varitek/A-Rod fight from finding your legs. I don’t think this team has it man, a bunch of mercenaries…they have no heart, no leadership, no fire. We lack everything you guys have. That’s why you have been so much better than us the last 5 years. Meh…3 months until football. Go Fins!!! JT is back!!! :) You know, odd as it might sound, I wouldn’t trade that feeling of elation from 2004 for anything. 86 years put to rest. (For me it was 32 years.) It was something you’ll never experience, and something I’ll always deeply appreciate. Much different feeling, I imagine, than the feeling of winning a third WS in five years. And your manager is the wrong guy for the job. If the Sabres ever won the Cup or the Fins the SuperBowl, I could die a happy man…I can only imagine how stoked you guys were in 2004 and 2007. I’ve seen 4 WS titles but the Yankees are my third team behind the Fins and Sabres… Just brought in Veras to get one out??? Wishful thinking. I don’t know about Girardi either bro…I wanted him to get the job but he seems uncapable of doing anything??? No leadership on this team from management to the players… We need Sweet Lou!!!! COME HOME LOU!!! That or dig up and reanimate Billy!!! Alright…so we’re going to the bottom of the 9th, down 2 runs. This is where a great team, like the Sox against Mo, find a way to win the game. Will the Yankees step up and show some balls???? Not a fucking chance in hell…I would wager a 1-2-3 inning for Nathan…no doubt. Ichiro leadoff single. Takes 2nd on a WP. Ichiro is an animal… Gardner leads off the bottom of the 9th… 1-0 Last night’s loss to the Whalers just killed me. I’m still sour about it. 2-0 Just cracked a Negra Modelo. 2-1…no offense, but I hate the Bruins!!! 2-2 NICE!!! Fouled it just foul down the first baseline…fuck. 3-2 TRIPLE FOR GARDNER!!!! NO FUCKING WAY!!! Lester not sharp. But he strikes out Sweeney after going 3-0. He could have had another ISTPHR if he wouldn’t have slipped on first base!!! Alright…Teixeira and ARod to follow. I’m not confident. Right now, I hate the Bruins, too. BIG fucking disappointment. TEIXEIRA RBI SINGLE!!!! 3-4!!!! COME ON AROD!!! Sabres won 5 of 6 from the Bruins… ;) Lester 3-0 on Beltre. Walks him on 4. Culbreth’s K zone is crap tonight. 1-0 Did they really? Nooooo …. We were great against the playoff teams…couldn’t beat Tampa, Islanders and Thrashers…missed the playoffs by one game. No excuses though, we sucked. 2-0!!!! 2-1…BS FUCKING CALL!!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!! FUCK YOU FAT COCKSUCKER UMP!!!! Lester gets out of it after putting Ichro on third with 1 out. But it’s a 22-pitch first. 2-2 ANOTHER BS FUCKING CALL BY THIS ASSHOLE FUCKING UMP!!! DIE YOU MOTHERFUCKER!!!! 3-2…should have been a fucking walk. This ump is a joke. I hope he gets hit by a fucking bus. fouled it off… GREAT EYE AROD!!!!! WALK!!! 1st and 2nd…NO OUTS!!! COME ON YANKEES!!!! COME ON GODZILLA!!!! Easy there, Krueg. 0-1 Dunno what happened to the Bs. So lazy after sweeping the Habs. can’t…drunk. :) 1-1 1-2 hockey is crazy bro… 2-2 fouled it off…2-2 K…swish up, it’s over. Ellsbury triples to right, Bailey scores, 2-0! Petey out, 1-2. At least we have Ellsbury tonight. THe ball fucking bounced in the dirt in front of the plate and Godzilla swings…pathetic. Swisher grounds out. Fuck you Swish you fucking loser. Intentionally walks Cano. Bases loaded for Melky. I have zero confidence in Melky. You guys are awesome… MELKY!!!!!! GAP DOUBLE SCORES TWO!!! FIRST PITCH!!! YANKEES WIN…THEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!! YESSSSSS!!!! OFF NATHAN NO LESS!!!! TURNING POINT SF YOU OLD BASTARD!!!! ;) Nathan blows it. Hmmm. “I have zero confidence in Melky.” Krueg, Friday, May 15, 2009 at 10:44 PM “MELKY!!!!!! GAP DOUBLE SCORES TWO!!! FIRST PITCH!!! YANKEES WIN…THEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!!” Krueg, Friday, May 15, 2009 at 10:46 PM Baseball is crazy, bro. I can’t believe what I just saw…Sox-ish!!! Lester gets out of another jam unscathed. But 44 pitches. At this rate he won’t get through the 6th. Just walked in from practice…Krueg you’re hysterical! Huge win for the Yankees. Melky just so confident right now. Swisher was robbed, but in the end it’s all good. Hopefully a sign of things to come! Ells is a HR away from hitting for the cycle and we don’t even have a game thread… :( Ellsbury a homer short of the cycle. IBM do you need a thread? Do it John! Done Ath, have fun pal! I think we’re on to something here. All we need for the Yankees to win the World Series this season is for Krueg to solo comment every game, cursing like a stevedore with every post, while drinking a full case of Labatt’s. We can’t lose! Way to hang in there for the team tonight, Krueg. Glad you were rewarded for your herculean effort! Reading krueg tonight was the best possible thing for me, stuck at work. And by the way, I don’t condone the 10:34 PM post, but it does have its charm. I still can’t believe we won that game…awesome. I’m still pumped. Slight hangover but it was worth it! LET’S GO YANKEES!!!! P.S. IBM, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Thanks for hanging out with me last night! We’ll have to go to a Sabres vs Bruins game!
