  • Thanks for getting the gamer up Gerbs.
    What a difference a few days makes. I’ve been MIA for the past 5 days, but skimmed through all the games I had missed and DVR’ed last night – disciplined situational hitting, smart and aggressive baserunning, and passable pitching. Nice.
    Loving Rasner. He has skirted the edge a bit today but is pitching very well overall yet again. Unfortunately right now Olson is matching him 0 for 0. Shaping up to be some fun Memorial Day late-inning baseball.

  • Rasner through 5 innings – 73 pitches, including 52 strikes. This kid has been nothing short of superb in his first 4 ML starts
    Yanks with the heart of their order here need to get on Olson. Gotta love pitching duels.

  • A-Rod steals 2nd, demonstrating one of the many reasons he is the best weapon in the majors. No one else who slugs as he does (and virtually no one does) can also field and run the bases like this guy. Come on Matsui – just give us a single here…

  • 2 pop-ups…damn. Olson is dealing.

  • Markakis hits a long bomb – 1-0 O’s.
    Markakis’ career numbers off of Rasner:
    11 AB, 9 H (incl. 6 singles, 2 doubles, 1 HR), 1K, and 1 pop-up to SS.
    That is absurd and unbelievable.

  • Rasner done after 6IP, having given up only 5H, including the 1-run HR to Markakis. He tossed 99 pitches (incl. 69 strikes). Bummed that he didn’t get any run support. But that kid is here to stay and has certainly earned it.
    Hawkins promptly gives up a lead-off single. great.

  • Hawkins pukes up 2 runs including yet another RBI for Nick Markakis, whose defense and bat have been nauseatingly good today.
    Then Veras comes in and serves up a 3-R dinger to Huff (one of which is “credited” to LaTroy). 6-0 O’s. Nicely done guys. Glad Rasner worked so hard today.
    I know I should take the long-view and say that the pen has been great overall and recent Yankee play could not be expected to continue forever, but seeing Rasner’s start go so bad so immediately after his departure is depressing. And offensive anemia vs. Olson harkens too much to how they were playing before I went overseas..maybe I should get on another plane.

  • A little off topic, but ESPN has the Top 10 Veteran Athletes coming on in a second, and I’m going to be upset if Ted Williams isn’t on the list. I’ll post it when it comes up in a second.

  • So, the top 12 Veteran Athletes then?

  • Hey, you have a great blog here. Let’s exchange links. Check my blog out. I’m on Peter Abraham’s and most Yankee beat writers’ blog roll.

  • Yeah FenShea, that’s the way they did the list. Grouping Ted and Joe into one spot is a little weak.

    Atheose May 27, 2008, 9:23 am
  • wait, was this list based on their military or sports accomplishments?

    Sam-YF May 27, 2008, 10:12 am
  • Don’t know, Sam. It seemed kind of random to me.
