The Moose Is Loose: Yanks-Jays Gamer III

Mike Mussina, looking as good as he’s ever looked in pinstripes, takes the hill for the Yanks in an afternoon start today against the Jays, who throw Gustavo Chacin. Last time the boys saw him, in Toronto, they put up a quick 4-spot, before the bats went to sleep and the Unit started hemorraghing runs, the result being a loss. We’re hoping for a more sustained attack today, along with a solid pitching performance, the combined result of which being a you-know-what. Anyway, we may not be around to watch—though we do plan to be listening—but in the event that you are, this thread is your opportunity for comment on all the action.

  • 2nd batter, not so good. HBP.

  • Wells singles to left. RUnners on 1st and 2nd with one out. I don’t like.

  • all part of the “cerebral” Mussina’s plan, as he gets the Glaus GIDP. Very clever, Moose. Touche.

  • Johnny D, let’s go!

  • Chacin looks like a cross between Sidney Ponson and Robo Cop.

  • Damon gets on with the bunt single. What a player! He’s on fire.

  • Jeter’s up. The MVP race is close between him and Giambi.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:21 pm
  • MVP for what? Yankee player of the month?

    SF April 30, 2006, 1:22 pm
  • the AL. Who else is in the race?
    Exactly

  • They vote for the MVP now? Does that mean the Sox win the AL East?

    SF April 30, 2006, 1:25 pm
  • touche

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:25 pm
  • Giambi (co-MVP) does the unthinkable and k’s. A-Rod’s up.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:26 pm
  • the Yanks don’t score in an inning for the first time since Friday.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:27 pm
  • Moose k’s Overbay to lead off the 2nd.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:30 pm
  • Another k for Moose. It seems that he’s doing a lot less nibbling at the strike zone this year. A lot less 3-2 counts so far this season.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:33 pm
  • I meant a lot fewer.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:33 pm
  • a 3-2 count. And an unintentional jinx on my part.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:35 pm
  • He walks Zaun

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:35 pm
  • I feel like I’m shouting at the void. Very existential.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:36 pm
  • a single, and runners on 1st and 3rd.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:37 pm
  • Moose gets out the inning. DOesn’t seem as sharp in previous outings.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:39 pm
  • Matsui continues to struggle.

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:43 pm
  • a couple of observations:
    Adam Dunn looks like Will Ferrell.
    Raul Ibanez looks like the guitarist from Rage Against the Machine

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:45 pm
  • ok, I’m gone. Going to enjoy the beautiful day here in San Francisco.
    Go Yanks!

    NickYF April 30, 2006, 1:49 pm
  • Can anyone tell me why Torre was ejected?

    Devine April 30, 2006, 2:44 pm
  • Yeah, someone please help with this thread. Moose just got out of a bases loaded jam and Phillips hit a HR, but that’s all via gamecast…help!!

    RichYF April 30, 2006, 2:45 pm
  • Giambino!!
    Torre, and Gibbons in the second half of the same inning, were both ejected for arguing about the strike zone. Inconsistencies, apparently. Though the fact that both skippers were tossed probably weighs in the ump’s favor…

  • Yanks take every series of the homestand going 6 and 3. Off to Beantown to beat up on that soft-bullpen. LET’S GO YANKEES!!!!
