Wang versus Mays: It doesn’t get any better than this. Consider this your home opener game thread for all things Yanks/Royals.
OH MY GOD!!! THE ROYALS SCORED!!!
so, my game channel is not working. it would be a huge service to me if someone were to update me periodically about what’s going on in the game.
yanks up 3-1. wang is getting everyone out on grounders, but as soon as anyone puts the ball in the air they’re getting on base.
…which isn’t often.
Mays has walked the bases loaded with 2 outs and matsui up. 3-0 count… aaaaaaaand he walks him. How many walks are you allowed to do consecutively before the pitching coach comes out and says hi?
“Watching” this thing on ESPN’s vastly improved gamecast. Pretty sweet, and kind of old school. Matsui just walked with the bases juiced, scoring Johnny D. 4-1 Yanks. Hoot.
…I guess four walks is enough. Mays is outta heeeeere!
Jorge grounds out. Sanders dinger. 4-2. Coulda been a blowout. Now a 2-run game. Grrr.
this is driving me nuts…throw a strike!
not that kind of strike
If Wang is going to win 15 he’s going to have to pitch 5 innings, you know. Or become the best middle reliever in baseball history.
A slugfest with the Royals? This does not bode….
Beckett is busy walking people like he thinks he’s Mays. He’s walked three guys this inning, one with the bases loaded. This is maddening!
Hey, post that stuff in the Sox/Jays thread, MM!!
J Buck, 9 hole hitter for the Kansas City Royals and 2 out Clutch monster against the Yankees….ugggghhh!
SF, we’re going to win the thread head-to-head!
Now he’s 3-2 on Frick’n Hillenbrand! I’ve never seen anyone throw this many pitches in the first inning. He’s at close to 40 pitches and he’s only got one out… Just got a double play to get out of the inning. He went to seven or eight pitches on each batter. Terrible… I’ve got the gamecast on though, so its possible he was being squeezed by the ump. I guess we’ll see if Towers starts walking guys left and right.
Looks like it. Especially if people start posting Sox-Jays stuff here. I’ll take a win from the big boys over a thread comment victory any day, though.
I’m indescriminately posting. Sorry bout that…
Looks like the Royals were kicking the yankees wang a bit…
it says it’s bases loaded with Sheff about to come up. what’s happening/happened?!
3-0 count to shef
Why is Damon sacrificing in the 4th? JOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
full count…DP…oh Bernie, caught off base.
was that a sac? i thought it was a dribbler?
Thats just awful dumb. Come on, Yankees fans, Torre may be able to manage people, but he’s a terrible in-game tactician. He can’t manage a bullpen, and he’s got possibly the best lineup in baseball against possibly the worst pitching staff, its the fourth inning, and he’s got their new $52 Million lead off man… bunting? Whaa…?
My other brother says it wasn’t a bunt by the way? Any confirmation on that? 123 for Wang.
Wait. Did I see that correctly? Does MLB Gameday say “Royals 5 Yankees 4”? How can this be?
Oh, wait. Wang started. Now I get it.
And the Yankees fans go silent…
In the interest of posteritiy, its now 7-4, Royals.
Seriously, where did all the Yankees fans go? I am starting to get worried. Get off that ledge, YF!!
Steinbrenner must be ready to blow a gasket.
How are those predictions looking now, Nick?
not so good
I predict: Royals collapse.
(now comne on, reverse jinx!)
I think Andrew Sisco might be a bit out of his element.
Buddy Bell, the Yankees fan’s best friend.
Still alot of baseball in this game, YF’s.
The Yankees now have 9 walks on the day. 9! TGRCIU (thats thank god robinson cano is up)
c’mon Damon! (weird)
The Royals we all expected just showed up…
I have to say. I know tha tthe royals are a bad team…but what was the thinking behind leaving sisco in after he didn’t get an out for the first 3 batters?
What’s the backup option, Walein? What if everyone else sucks too?
I set the odds at 1:2 that George Steinbrenner ends up a messy pile of tears if “these great Yankees” come back to win.
Oh man…The Yanks: More exciting than the Sox!
rally cap finished
This is the type of season the Yankees are going to have: lots of 9-7, 10-6 wins. We know how those seasons end, though.
You guys are watching a legend.
Hly shit- the fruitbat is in!
greatest comeback in the last 75 years!
leg’s go Reggie, let’s go! (clap. clap)
don’t sweat giving up 7 to the royals. sturtze and proctor continue to impress, and wang is well on his way to the 20 win season we all know he has in him. real nail bitter in the 9th, but the mans a legend (electric fence or not).
cue “New York, New York”
sf rod, that’s kind of messed up bringing up the electric fence. It’s not even funny, just mean. You’re better than that based on previosu posts.
Sniff. I. am. so. choked. up. Sniff. That was the GREATEST win in my team’s history. These guys are just the best. I am speechless after an effort like that. And over such a gloriously put together team like the boys from Kansas City.
Pardon me while I dab the tears from my eyes.
Thanks. Well done, boys. You’re the best team in New York. You’ve done the city pro– hey, what the hell is that crap? Get that Mets flag OUTTA HERE, you PUNK. Yeah, YOU. WE’RE the best team in New York. Oh yeah? You wanna go? Right NOW. Yeah. I’ll throw down RIGHT NOW if you want. Where the f*ck is Sheff when you need hi-
“wang is well on his way to the 20 win season we all know he has in him.”
How’s that? Because he’s 0-0 after two starts?
my appologies, that was uncalled for. mlb audio difficulties have got me bitter.
hey, no problem. We’ve all said things in the heat of the moment…
If we’re giving up 7 to the Royals, what’s going to happen when we play the Sox???
