Know When To Hold ‘Em: Yanks-ChiSox Gamer

It does not rise to the level of an irony that a story about ARod being involved in an “illegal” poker game breaks when the Yankees are playing the White Sox, but it is a fun coincidence.  High Stakes Poker!  Beverly Hills!  Open cocaine usage?  In Beverly Hills?!  Spider Man was there!  Leo!  Jason Bourne and that other movie star Sox fan too!

Allegedly, ARod lost a couple thousand dollars at the game, but let’s call it 5k.  He makes 31M just off of baseball this year.  If you make 40 grand a year, that’s like losing six bucks and change.  Snore.

Back to baseball where the Yankees look to make it six wins in a row including five on the season over the Pale Sox with AJ Burnett on the mound (now who’s gambling?) while Gavin Floyd pitches for Chicago.  Lineups follow, comment away.

  • RIDICULOUS called 3rd strike on Swish…fucking ridiculous. 2 outs.
    THe ump is clearly from New England.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 8:30 pm
  • Yeah, that called strike on Swisher was bullshit. It was neck level. I’m surprised Swish kept his cool.
    What’s this about A-Rod and a poker game? That’s illegal for him?

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 8:33 pm
  • Of course AJ is primed to give it right back because he SUCKS BALLS!!!!! Worthless redneck idiot.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • I have Yanks-Sox tix tomorrow night at Comiskey. Upper deck, between home and 1st.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 3, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • It would be nice if AJ’s strike zone was the same as this losers…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 8:46 pm
  • Are you going to be “that guy” IBM that wears Sox gear to a Yankee game?

    krueg August 3, 2011, 8:47 pm

    krueg August 3, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • I don’t even think that AJ can blow this lead…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 9:38 pm
  • come on AJ…

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 9:53 pm
  • I may have spoke too soon…AJ is an embarrassment to the uniform.
    It’s horrible to wish for an injury…I know this…but…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 9:54 pm
  • I go to the store to get dinner fixings and look forward to enjoying a ball game. And then 13 runs before I turn on the tube. Wow. But here come the Sox. Look out what lightning you call down, Krueg.

    attackgerbil August 3, 2011, 9:57 pm
  • 13-6.
    Fuck. You. AJ.
    Please just quit baseball so I don’t have to continue to hope you suffer a CAREER ENDING FUCKING INJURY. You are the WORST FUCKING YANKEE OFF ALL TIME and I FUCKING HATE YOUR GUTS YOU FUCKING LOSER. HAVE SOME FUCKING PRIDE AND JUST RETIRE ASSHOLE. HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR EVERYDAY, KNOWING YOU ARE STEALING MONEY FROM THE YANKEES???? YOU ARE A HORRIBLE HUMAN BEING AND PROBABLY AN ACTIVE TEA PARTY MEMBER AND HAVE A FUCKING SARAH PALIN/MICHELLE BACHMANN STICKER ON YOUR PIECE OF SHIT YUKON THAT I SAW YOU DRIVING OUT OF THE STADIUM LAST YEAR!!!! I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE PAID THE GYPSY DRIVER AN EXTRA $100 TO RUN YOUR STUPID, REDNECK ASS OFF A FUCKING BRIDGE IN THE BRONX!!! I had the chance and I blew it…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 9:58 pm
  • I feel better now.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 9:59 pm
  • I has a thought yer keyboard got brokened, Krueg.

    attackgerbil August 3, 2011, 10:00 pm
  • It’s a mac so thankfully no… ;)

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:01 pm
  • Jeter with another hit…he has been killing it since coming off the DL…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:04 pm
  • Hey, I’m a mac…for now. The next time one of my freaking $80 chargers breaks then I’m giving up on the son of a bitch.
    Just like I’m giving up on AJ.
    DFA Burnett!!

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 10:06 pm
  • I’ve never had a problem with my chargers…what are you doing with yours dusty???
    I would love to whip mine into AJ’s temple…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:07 pm
  • I’m not even going to say anything…
    Hey ag, are you going to get an Ehrhoff, Regehr or Leino jersey for this season???

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:12 pm
  • GET HIM OUT OF THE FUCKING GAME!!!! WHAT THE FUCK??????
    You fucking blew a 13-1 lead you worthless piece of shit. Just kill yourself asshole.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:16 pm
  • Wire-fraying. It’s very common. Look at the customer reviews on Apple’s website. It has like…2 starts.
    I had my last charger for 3 months before it happened. POS design.
    Speaking of POS…
    I’m gonna build an effigy of AJ Burnett and do terrible things to it.

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 10:18 pm
  • This is a new low…even for him. Unbelievable.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:20 pm
  • Cory Wade >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Dickhole

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:21 pm
  • I didn’t know that dusty…i have never had a problem with mine. On either of the two mac’s i’ve had over the past 11 years. I don’t travel much with it though.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:21 pm
  • My new AJ Burnett Anthem!!!!

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:26 pm
  • Oh. Well, I take mine with me around Charleston quite a bit. Mainly the college library for epic studying sessions.
    Cory Wade’s numbers are really good. I had no clue. This staff is full of overachievers this year…and then there’s AJ.

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 10:26 pm
  • Charleston…love it.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:28 pm
  • AJ is winless in August as a Yankee. He was given a 13-1 lead tonight very early. He will remain winless in August.
    That’s profound levels of talentlesshackdouchebaggery there.

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 10:28 pm
  • Sure is dude…sure is…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:29 pm
  • They should really just buy him out…
    I cannot wait to hear the post game…I’m staying up to watch it.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:30 pm
  • Won’t have access to the post game here. Do share the highlight quotes. I want to hear how he’s taking it one day at a time. And then I want to hear Larry Rothschild explain how he can resurrect the careers of two overweight, over-the-hill starters, but AJ’s problems are incurable. There is no treatment for pure suck.

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 10:35 pm
  • And also…AJ’s bullshit is now going to fuck up our bullpen because you know Champagne Super Nova isn’t going to go 7 tomorrow…for the series in BAH-sten.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:38 pm
  • “There is no treatment for pure suck.”
    Exactly.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:39 pm
  • Stolen base for Gardner…MLB leader I believe???
    2nd and 3rd with no outs for JETER!!!!

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:46 pm
  • Hard liner…right at fat Dunn. 1 out. Lame.

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:47 pm
  • 2 RUN SINGLE FOR GRANDERSON!!!!!! 15-7!!!!!
    FUCK YOU AJ!!!!!

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:50 pm
  • Past ball lets the runners advance…2nd and 3rd with 2 outs…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:54 pm
  • Chavez is rocking a sweet porn stache…Giambi-style!

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:56 pm
  • Swish walked the bases loaded by the way…2 outs…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:56 pm
  • 2 RUN SINGLE FOR CHAVEZ!!!!!!! 17-7!!!!!
    FEEL SHAME IN THE CLUBHOUSE AJ YOU ASSHOLE!!!!!

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:58 pm
  • The Sox fans are filing out now…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 10:59 pm
  • Another 5 hit game for Jeter…

    krueg August 3, 2011, 11:14 pm
  • Granderson with an RBI double…4 hits for him…
    18-7.
    :)

    krueg August 3, 2011, 11:15 pm
  • Lets see…
    Yeah, Brett is now tied for the AL lead in SBs.
    19 in a row too.
    Jeter is now up to .280 for the season. He could still salvage this season.

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 11:17 pm
  • Yankees 1-2-3 hitters tonight:
    12 for 17, 1 HBP, 1 SB, 1 2B, 1 3B, 10 runs, 7 RBIs.

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 11:20 pm
  • Meanwhile, the bullpen is doing a fantastic job again.
    Everyone’s been talking about Robertson and Mo this year, but really a whole bunch of guys have contributed greatly. Ayala especially deserves more credit.

    DustyDrB - YF August 3, 2011, 11:24 pm
  • Regarding macbooks: yes, those power adapters can fray at the wall wart. I’ve lost a couple of them that way. I have five adapters right now.

    attackgerbil August 3, 2011, 11:39 pm
  • Krueg: I wish I knew what happened to my Darren Puppa shirt.

    attackgerbil August 3, 2011, 11:42 pm
  • Puppa…awesome.
