Worst Line-Up Ever!: Yanks-M’s Gamer II

Peter Abraham just posted the line-up for tonight’s game at the Lohud Yanks site. Here it is:

Johnny Damon CF
Miguel Cairo 2B
Derek Jeter SS
Jason Giambi DH
Bernie Williams RF
Andy Phillips 1B
Melky Cabrera LF
Nick Green 3B
Kelly Stinnett C
Sidney Ponson RHP

Holy awful! Of course, the significant news is that A-Rod’s not in the line-up. He hurt his toe last night and went to a doctor this morning to find out the extent of the injury. I’m posting this early, but Torre’s supposed to provide more details about the situation before game time. There’s a chance it’s broken and if so…well, I just don’t want to even begin thinking about it. Stay tuned..So, the Yanks go to battle with an injury-decimated team and the results are the worst Yankees line-up since Mel Hall batted clean-up. The only problem I have, and it’s not a small one, is Torre’s choice to start Bernie instead of Aaron Guiel. Bernie has no business playing against righties. His numbers against lefties are dreadful and Aaron’s are good. Anyway, it’s going to be tough scoring runs, and given the fact that this is Sir Sidney’s debut, I’m not too confident about our chances tonight. Still, you never know. Anything is possible in this great game.

This is your thread for comment. Go Yanks!

  • A-Rod’s x-rays were negative, the big toe is just badly bruised; the report is that he could be in the line-up as early as tomorrow. For all the MF’ing boo-birds out there in Yankeeland, think about having Nick Green at 3B for an extended period of time before you open your fat pie-holes to boo A-Rod next time.

  • great news about Alex, and BY78, you’re right on about the boo-birds.

    Nick-YF July 18, 2006, 5:30 pm
  • Let’s pull out one of those Mel Hall rosters from 1992, a game that featured a young Bernie Williams in right field and leading off for NY against the Sox at the stadium.
    Bernie Williams RF
    Andy Stankiewicz SS
    Don Mattingly 1B
    Mel Hall DH
    Roberto Kelly CF
    Randy Velarde LF
    Charlie Hayes 3B
    Mike Stanley C
    Pat Kelly 2B
    Melido Perez pitched.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 5:40 pm
  • Oh the humanity….I have to confess though, deep down, I almost want the Yanks to lose tonight…just so the TRADE AROD dopes could start to appreciate how important Alex is to this team.
    And BY78, amen.

    yankeemonkey July 18, 2006, 5:42 pm
  • And, did Ponson lose about 10lb throwing up when he saw that lineup card?

    yankeemonkey July 18, 2006, 5:44 pm
  • People hav been booing Slappy? But he’s the reigning MVP!
    Oh, the humanity…

  • trade rumors from the west coast are: a rod to the angels for colon, mc pherson, and a prospect (most likely kendrick or napoli but not weaver jr.) and cash.

    sf rod July 18, 2006, 6:05 pm
  • sf-rod, where did you see that?

    Nick-YF July 18, 2006, 6:10 pm
  • Is that like the Arod to the Cubs for Aramis Ramirez rumor from a couple of weeks ago?

    yankeemonkey July 18, 2006, 6:11 pm
  • sf rod – Ouch. I don’t like that deal at all. Then again, I would be hard-pressed to find a trade involving ARod that I would like.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 6:15 pm
  • YF’s I just heard on the news that the x-rays were of the negative type. Let the boos continue. Joking of course.

    Brad July 18, 2006, 6:31 pm
  • I just want to point out that for 9 teams out of 10 in the major leagues, having Damon, Jeter and Giambi in the lineup would be a major upgrade.
    When you think of it, starting the season with those three PLUS A-Rod, Matsui and Sheffield was just ridiculously over the top.
    The Injury Gods apparently want to bring the baseball universe more into balance.

    Hudson July 18, 2006, 6:38 pm
  • los angeles radio station 710 am had bill stoneman on to discuss the soriano trade talks. he said the angels have moved away from being a serious player for soriano and set their eyes on bigger moves. a caller asked about the rumor of calls to cashman. stoneman said out of respect to all clubs involved he wouldn’t address any proposed tades at this time. when the hosts questioned him again on it, he made the statement “we (angels) are one of the few teams that have cash, prospects, and pitching wealth, that would allow us to be in such talks.”

    sf rod July 18, 2006, 6:44 pm
  • Hudson, I need to know how to appease these Injury Gods. Perhaps I can donate my liver or my brain. I’ve been killing those slowly with beer for enough years now, but they have proved worthwhile foes.
    My gods, Ponson looks like he is feeling the heat out there. You could cook french fries in his neck-sweat.
    He starts off with three balls to Ichiro, then brings a strike to make it 3-1. Ichiro takes outside for ball four and is on board.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:10 pm
  • Ponson with a strike to Beltre. He then checks Ichiro back to first. Close pitch just off the inside corner for 1-1 that had him jumping back off the plate. Adrian holds up on a check swing to make it 2-1. Another check to Ichiro. The 2-1 is low and on the outside corner but Beltre defensively swings it off.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:13 pm
  • The 2-2 brushes Beltre back to make the count full. The payoff is a low and away breaking pitch that Beltre reaches out and pops to center for the first out. Ichiro was running on the play but retreats to first. Lopez up.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • Pitchout but Ichiro wasn’t going.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:15 pm
  • Ichiro is going on the ball 2 but Stinnet short hops the throw. Wouldn’t have had Suzuki even if it was online. That’s Ichiro’s 29th swipe on the season on 31 attempts.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:16 pm
  • Lopez is walked on four pitches. First and second, one away to Raul Ibanez, who takes strike one looking.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:17 pm
  • Strike 2. The 0-2 is fouled back left.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:17 pm
  • The next 0-2 is popped into foul territory, just behind first. AP makes the catch for the second out. Sexson up.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • And just like that, Sexson makes it 3-0 Seattle with a first pitch jack over the left field wall. Ugh.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:19 pm
  • Everett up. he grounds an 0-1 pitch to Cairo to end the inning, but not before Ponson makes a splash with the M’s bats. This could be a long game.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • I sincerely hope that Ponson is just having jitters and he will settle down in the second. In the mean time, let’s see what Damon, Cairo and Jeter can do to get things going against Joel Pineiro.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:22 pm
  • Damon singles an 0-1 to left. Attaboy, Johnny.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • Strike one to Miguel. The 0-1 is a deuce over for a strike at the knees. The 0-2 is way outside and low but Cairo chases and is sat down on three pitches. Owned.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:24 pm
  • Sidney living up to the hype.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 7:24 pm
  • I wonder if they will send Damon. Thunderheads are looming.
    Piniero hits Jeter in the buttocks with an errant pitch. First and second to Giambi.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • Big swing and a miss on a low change (?) from Pineiro. The next pitch is a deuce in the dirt that gets away from Johjima. Damon and Jeter advance on the WP, second and third with one out.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:26 pm
  • Way outside for 2-1. The 2-1 is hit on the ground at second. Damon scores on the sacrifice, Jeter to third. Bernie up, Seattle 3, NY 1.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:27 pm
  • Bernie is 7-21 lifetime against Pineiro. He takes strike one. The 0-1 tails away from Bernie who misses badly to make it 0-2. Bernie grounds it weakly to Lopez to end the inning on the 4-3.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:29 pm
  • Johjima takes strike one to lead off the top of the second, then can’t hold up on a breaking pitch off the plate for 0-2. A foul ball keeps the AB alive for Kenji. Another 0-2 is called strike three on the corner. It was a shade outside, maybe 6 inches, close pitch to take in that situation.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:32 pm
  • Betancourt taks ball one, then lifts a popout to left center, where Damon makes the catch for the second out.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:33 pm
  • Jones is at 1-1 in the count, and takes inside for 2-1. Ponson feeds a pitch away that Cairo muffs on what should have been an easy ground ball out. 2 outs, runner on first after the E4.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:34 pm
  • Jones gets caught cheating off first and is erased on a good pickoff throw, but I think he got back to the bag safely. Out on appearance.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:35 pm
  • AP!!!!
    Home run to left on the first pitch!!!

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • I guess this is the place to jump in and trade barbs?

    Rob July 18, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • I really do not like Andy Phillips.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • Melky up, and misses on a pitch tailing off the plate for strike one. He then grounds out to the pitcher; Joel plays it himself. He’s really quick off the mound.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • ESPN had a good article on that Make A Wish organiztion tonight with Jeter meeting this one kid. Showed the really classy side of Jeter.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 7:39 pm
  • Green doubles to right center going with the pitch to bring up Stinnett with one away. Stinnett has no chance and is completely overmatched by Pineiro.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:40 pm
  • I did not mean to imply Jeter has a non-classy side. The guy is money for the Yanks and thier fans and plays the game the right way. Probably the only Yankee beside Bernie I respect. Now, as for Judas….

    Rob July 18, 2006, 7:43 pm
  • Damon takes strike one, then a ball. The 1-1 is inside.
    Also, his Turn Two foundation is well-respected.
    Johnny retired swinging on a full count, unhittable pitch from Pineiro running away from Damon. Nice pitch.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:43 pm
  • No Rob, I didn’t take it that way. I don’t know Jeter, but I do know that he either completely understands the value of philanthropy, or does it out of the true goodness of his heart, or both. Either way, he does good work outside of baseball.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:44 pm
  • Ponson gets a called strike against Ichiro. Might have been a bit inside. The next pitch is outside for 1-1. Ponson then gets Ichiro to swing on a pitch a bit up to pop out to straightaway center. Beltre up.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:46 pm
  • The 2-0 is swung on and missed on a good pitch by Ponson. The 2-1 is another fastball missed to make it 2-2. The 2-2 is up a bit on the outside corner, nice placement, and Beltre pops out to center.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:47 pm
  • Pop-out to right ends the inning. Ponson is doing a good job of setting up hitters right now. Hope he keeps it up.
    Just saw that Soriano homered, number 30 on the year.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:49 pm
  • I’ll take a 1-2-3 inning from Ponson anyday. I hope the guy settles down nice and easy like this for at least 3 more innings

    bloodyank78 July 18, 2006, 7:50 pm
  • Cairo is at 1-1 in the count leading off the bottom of the third. Strike two swinging on a pitch in on his ankles. Ugh. He holds on an pitch away for 2-2. He then grounds out to short for the first out.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • And a 1-2-3 inning is so much more enjoyable on DSL.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • Jeter steps in, and ropes the first pitch to straightaway center for a single.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • At least Derek realizes that Joel Pinero is pitching tonight.

    walein July 18, 2006, 7:55 pm
  • Giambi takes ball one, and then another pitch away for ball two. Shift is on. The count goes 3-0 while Jeter swipes second – no throw, but not indifference. The 3-0 looked low but is called strike one. Pineiro checks Jeter back to second and Jeter shoves Betancourt as they share a laugh about something. Joel walks Giambi on the next pitch. First and second to Bernie as the sky looks ominous.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:55 pm
  • Bernie takes away for ball one, and then grounds into a textbook 463 dp to end the inning. FECK. Aaron Guiel, feel like hitting next AB?

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:57 pm
  • Ponson starts off with three balls to Ibanez.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 7:59 pm
  • Walks him on four pitches.
    Starts Sexson off with a strike.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:00 pm
  • Sexson is retired swinging. Everett up with two outs.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:02 pm
  • I have to say…it’s almost harder Not to strike out Richie Sexson.

    walein July 18, 2006, 8:04 pm
  • It’s 2-0 to Everett who swings and misses on the curve for strike one. The 2-1 is a great pitch tailing away that Everett flails at but misses. The 2-2 is popped foul behind third. Another 2-2: Ponson gets Everett swinging. Nice, Sid.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:05 pm
  • Walein – yeah, it’s a four-sided coin toss k, k, foul, or hit rilly rilly hard.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:06 pm
  • Johjima is retired looking to end the inning. Ponson, outside of the walk, looked very good that inning.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:07 pm
  • Hey, who’s this guy pitching that looks a lot like Sydney Ponson?

    bloodyank78 July 18, 2006, 8:08 pm
  • Did they answer the last Royals pitcher with a CG win?

    Rob July 18, 2006, 8:10 pm
  • That’s a pretty amazing play by Beltre to get AP at first.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:11 pm
  • Rob – They changed the channel off the game before I had a chance to see it. I googled around a bit, and I think it’s Saberhagen and Boone in 89, but I don’t know.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:13 pm
  • I saw your answer over on the other page as I posted in here.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 8:14 pm
  • Stinnett up to try and not embarrass himself again, and works the count to 2-2. Kelly fouls off a high pitch to stay alive at 2-2. Joel loses the handle on a breaking pitch to bring the count full. He fouls off a very snappy curve to stay alive. The payoff pitch is a broken bat foul. Good at bat from Kelly here. Another foul as Green must be getting tired running on all these full counts. Sitnnett hits it in the hole between short and third. Betancourt does a great job to get to the ball but has no chance to get Stinnett at first. GREAT at bat.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:19 pm
  • Damon up with two on, two away, takes strike one.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:20 pm
  • Damon grounds out to second as Lopez tosses to the short stop for the force to end the inning. No runs, but ran up the pitch count nicely that inning.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:21 pm
  • Jeter can’t get to a roller by Betancourt in the 5-6 hole. Strike one to Jones. Ball one and Betancourt swipes second on a phantom tag. Thought he had him, but it looks like Betancourt executed a really good slide around the tag. Strike 2, then a roller at Cairo for the out at first. Yunieski to third on the play, one out.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:26 pm
  • Ponson gets ahead of Ichiro 1-2, then throws a ball inside to make it 2-2. The 2-2 is in the dirt to make it full.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:28 pm
  • Full count to Suzuki is a dying quail to center that scores the run. Blech.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:30 pm
  • Checking out for a bit. Back soon.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2006, 8:30 pm
  • Can we at least get the league avg. against Piniero?

    walein July 18, 2006, 8:35 pm
  • Yanks score no runs in the B5.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 8:37 pm
  • Yanks have 2 down in the B6th…no base runners.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 8:49 pm
  • 6th comes to an end with no runs for the Yanks.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 8:49 pm
  • Seattle 2 down with a runner on third.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 8:58 pm
  • Yanks pitch their way out of the threat, Seattle strands the runner on third.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:03 pm
  • Yanks have a runner on 2nd, no outs.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:07 pm
  • Yanks have 1 out. Runner still on second.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • Yanks 2 down…no change in base runner.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • yanks strand the runner at 2nd.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • Seattle has a runner on second and one out.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:27 pm
  • 2 down for Seattle.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:29 pm
  • A-Rod in the game as a defensive substitution.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:33 pm
  • Yanks get out of a 1st and 2nd with 2 outs. A KC retread gets the Yanks out of the inning.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:35 pm
  • Jeter leads off the 8th striking out on high heat.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • On a positive note for both the Yanks and Sox…Toronto is losing in Texas 5-2.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:39 pm
  • Giambi strikes out.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:40 pm
  • The pitcher for Seattle right now is Soriano..he has 56 strikeouts in 49.1 innings. This kid throws some heat.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:40 pm
  • Bernie flies out to center. Headed to the top of the 9th.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:42 pm
  • Johjima flies out on the first pitch.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:44 pm

    Rob July 18, 2006, 9:45 pm
  • Guiel singles to drive in a run…Yanks down 5-4 with one out.

  • Crosby to 2nd on a wild pitch

    Rob July 18, 2006, 10:00 pm
  • C’mahn, yah PUTZ!

    rk July 18, 2006, 10:02 pm
  • Posada reachs on an infield single. Crosby advances to 3rd.

    Rob July 18, 2006, 10:03 pm
  • Um, gamecast saying “on-field delay” . . . what?

  • Hargrove gets the ole heave ho!

    Rob July 18, 2006, 10:04 pm

  • All tied up with Damon’s SF

    Rob July 18, 2006, 10:05 pm

    z118 July 18, 2006, 10:10 pm
  • Now it says delayed… I’m assuming ARod made the third out before the delay?

    Paul SF July 18, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • ahhh…. rain delay.

    z118 July 18, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • Rain delay…it was an unbelievable downpour.

    Tom sf July 18, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • This is why the world hates the god damned Yankees.
    What kind of call was that?

    Wells July 18, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • I’m sure the rain got much, much worse right after the Yanks scored the tying run, as opposed to the inning before… ;-)

    Paul SF July 18, 2006, 10:14 pm
  • Hey Sux fans, quit crying, there’s no crying in baseball.

    bloodyank78 July 18, 2006, 10:20 pm
  • BY, bringing out the adult putdowns tonight?

    Paul SF July 18, 2006, 10:48 pm
  • Crying? How bout crying about the rain and letting the game go on so you can win?

    rk July 18, 2006, 11:07 pm
  • LOL; you guys are too serious. =P

    bloodyank78 July 18, 2006, 11:24 pm
  • I suspect it’s a plot by the Yankees to keep ARod from striking out and being booed yet again … Delaying a game mid-at-bat?? It’s the only explanation…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:01 am
  • Hey! The Yanks are back, and so am I. Let’s go Yanks.
    Here’s hoping A-Rod makes this a short nightcap. Julio Mateo in to pitch for the M’s.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:04 am
  • A pickoff throw and then a foul strike after the 1:58 delay. And then Alex ks looking on a ball that was both low AND outside. Get back in the game ump!

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:06 am
  • Clutchness personified.

    rk July 19, 2006, 12:07 am
  • And, surprisingly — or, you know, not — A-Rod strikes out…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:07 am
  • Can’t blame Alex for that. That was a ball.
    Yikes! Johnny D at first base. (What the heck happened in this game?!?) Farns pitching.
    Heads up if you’re sitting behind first! Jorge better be backing up…

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:09 am
  • Johnny Damon is playing first base?!?!? Wow… Crazy extra-inning, rain-delayed games…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:10 am
  • I hear Jose Canseco is warming up for the Yanks…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:10 am
  • FARNS!!! Throw strikes!

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:11 am
  • Nice grab Bernie! Looking not a day over 36.
    It is hard to walk Adrian Beltre.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:12 am
  • Philips to Damon, 4-3. Not likely to see that in the box score again after tonight.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:14 am
  • Radar gun has Farns at 101. Even if it’s giving him a couple mph, that’s some serious heat.
    fly out to jeets for ibanez.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:15 am
  • Something tells me the M’s had their chance, and it’s only a matter of time til the Yanks win this one…

  • Grrr. Beltre robs Jeter. Helps to have a first baseman who’s 7 feet tall.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:18 am
  • Giambi whiffs with the dinger swing to bring the count to 2-2….

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:20 am
  • And he k’s on the heat on the outside half. Great pitching by Mateo, starting Giambi on the slow stuff, then doubling up on the fastballs, the first inside, then out for the k.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:22 am
  • Bernie Baseball!!!!

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:23 am
  • I really thought Mateo was gonna keep pounding him inside, Giambi would adjust and rip a HR down the line… That was indeed very good pitching to be able to go back outside and not get burned…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:23 am
  • again, I’m no where near a TV. So YFSF and gamecast are my guides. Go Yanks!

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:24 am
  • AP grounds to Beltre.
    On to the 11th.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:24 am
  • crap

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:25 am
  • Proctologist in to face Sexson. Farns goes all of 1. Way to earn that big contract, Farns!

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:28 am
  • Has Proctor’s arm fallen off yet?

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:28 am
  • Sexson grounds to Alex.
    Chacon warming in the pen. SCORE IN THE BOTTOM OF THIS INNING, YANKS!

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:29 am
  • Thought Farnsworth woulda gone two… Isn’t he goal in xtra innings to get as much out of your relievers in case you go very late? Don’t know what Torre’s doing there…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:29 am
  • Proctor hits Perez right in the ass. Man on first. Johjima up.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:29 am
  • Farns has to be able to give us more than 1 inning in this circumstance.

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:30 am
  • HBP — A tired Farnsworth is certainly a safer bet than Proctor, imo

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:30 am
  • he’s had chronic back problems, so who knows? Maybe Farnswacker got hurt again.

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:31 am
  • Not extending Farns is probably a good move. Don’t want to overwork him. Day game tomorrow.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:31 am
  • Proctor and Wilem Defoe. Anyone else see the resemblance?

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:31 am
  • Not in the GameCast photo, Nick…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:32 am
  • How’s Defoe’s walk rate?

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:32 am
  • his good movie to crappy movie is pretty decent for a hollywood actor. Better than Nic Cage’s, worse than Johnny Depp’s.

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:33 am
  • rate*

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:34 am
  • Well, Johnny Depp is the Wade Boggs of actors… Almost never strikes out, usually makes good contact…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:35 am
  • Christ. Jorge takes one in the hand. Ouch. Stays in there (not that there’s any choice, at this point.)
    And then Damon rescues a pickoff throw headed toward the loge.
    And Proctor Ks Betancourt to end the inning.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:35 am
  • Maybe more like Ted Williams, since he hits more home runs…

    Paul SF July 19, 2006, 12:35 am
  • Inning Over, thank you “Everyday” Scott Proctor

    bloodyank78 July 19, 2006, 12:35 am
  • Come on Leche!

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:37 am
  • have to run away from the internet. My lady calls.

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:37 am
  • bold prediction first though: It’s going to be Bubba time in a minute.

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:38 am
  • LECHE!

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:38 am
  • How sweet would a walk-off be to add to Leche’s first year stint? HOLY SHIT SOOTH!!!! He hit right while I was typing HOLY SHITTTT

    bloodyank78 July 19, 2006, 12:38 am
  • My girlfriend is pissed and she has no idea why I’m screaming at the computer!!!

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:39 am
  • This team is scraaapy

    bloodyank78 July 19, 2006, 12:40 am
  • Sorry Nick, didn’t make it to Bubba. Leche lines a fastball over the right field wall on 2-1. Whoopee! Melky gets a curtain call. Let’s hope it’s not his last in pinstripes. Gotta love the kid.

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:40 am
  • one second, honey, I’ll be there.

    Nick-YF July 19, 2006, 12:40 am
  • That was my coolest moment ever on this site, typing in the “how great if Leche hits one for a walk off”, and the Melkman does it right as I’m typing! Have a great night everyone, I’m going to sleep grinning tonight.

    bloodyank78 July 19, 2006, 12:44 am
  • Thanks for bringin’ us home BY78. Something we can all sleep well on.
    Early start tomorrow. We’ll be here.
    Got Melk?

    YF July 19, 2006, 12:45 am
  • I’m way late to the party, but just let me add..
