Come on ag…we are Yankee fans. We don’t worry about first place until about July!
Reinforcements are sooooooooo close brother. Let’s grind out another series win baby!
8 pitch, 1-2-3 inning…lame.
Hughes just got fucking hosed on a K…Gordon literally started walking to the dugout, no call.
Fuck you ump. ROBOT UMPS!!!! NOW!!!!
…and of course he gets a hit right after.
BUT, no damage. Solid first for Hughes.
0-0 after 1.
Hafner walks and then….
BOOM!!!! ICHI BOMB!!!!!
…and as I’m typing Nix rocks a double to the corner!
LYLE THE AGELESS ONE OVERBAY CRUUUUUUUUUUUSHES ONE TO RF!!!!!
This umpire is clearly being paid off. Punches out Gardner on a 1/4 swing.
ROBOT UMPS. IT’S 2013????
4-0 after 1.5
Hughes walks the leadoff man on 4 pitches. Are you really going to do your whole “blow the lead the very next inning thing” again?
Come on Phil.
Single…1st and 2nd with no outs.
AND he had him 0-2. Couldn’t put him away. Does Hughes have an 0-2 count on every single batter he faces? It seems like it.
COME ON PHIL!
BLEW him away.
ONE MORE PHIL!!!!
Of course…with 2 outs…and 2 strikes…
You know what happened. It’s Phil fucking Hughes.
How many times has this kid done this. I believe I called it. Not that it’s some kind of great feat, it’s what he does.
Fucking blows leads like it’s his job.
I cannot wait until he is gone and I never have to watch him again. Hopefully he stays in the AL so we can light his sorry ass up as well.
I hate you Phil Hughes. Always have, always will.
Was at a double dentist appointment for the kids, getting lectured on what a bad parent I am. Then rush hour traffic. No worries, I’ll watch baseball. Then! Tuned in JUST in time to see that. Kaplooie.
Easy breezy 1-2-3 less than 10 pitch bounce back inning for Davis…
See Hughes you fucking loser, it’s not that hard.
Lead evaporating in 3-2-1…
I hate him ag…with a burning hot hatred like sun plasma.
…AND he nails the leadoff man.
I am trying really, really hard to not lose it. I have been so good this season. I feel like I am growing, maturing as a person. But fuck if my hatred for Hughes is not making it difficult.
…and of course now he is afraid to throw strikes. He’s all over the place.
Here comes another vintage Hughes meltdown inning.
Gordon just missed it. Meaty fastball right down the middle.
COME ON HUGHES.
I cannot believe what I just saw. Hughes actually protected a lead for an inning.
Virginia…there is a Santa Claus.
LET’S GO OFFENSE!!!!
LYLE MOTHERFUCKING OVERBAY IS CLUTCH AND CLUTCH IS EVERYTHING!!!!!!
I just looked up “back with a vengeance” in the urban dictionary and saw a picture of you, Krueg.
OK Phil…enough of this bullshit. Put up a zero.
I have just been screaming all this at the wife, or dogs, depending on who is home. I feel like I can’t jinx it now. The vets are handling shit!
DOUBLE PLAY BABY!!!!! I give Hughes some credit…not much, but some.
5-3 after 4
LEADOFF DOUBLE FOR GARDY!!!!! That a boy!!!!!
1 pitch for Robbie.
Vernon and Travis hit the ball hard…right at them.
Can we hope for another donut from Phil?
I am not going to hold my breath.
Hughes doing his thing…of course…
1st and 3rd with 1 out.
Lead about to be gone.
Bullpen Joe. Now.
PULL HIM JOE HE IS A FUCKING JOKE!!!!!!
Please.. ground ball.. please.
I’m delayed it seems.
Losing this one would really hurt.
4-0 lead early that sorry-ass Hughes cannot hold. Incredible.
I cannot wait for Pineda to come back. Then trade Hughes for a port-potty and some sunflower seeds.
No, Phil Hughes is delayed…delayed from his exit from our beloved franchise about 3 years ago.
Luckily the Vet grinders know how to win…we will win in spite of Phil Hughes pathetic ass.
See…LEADOFF DOUBLE FOR ICHI-SAN!!!!
Nix singles….1st and 3rd with no outs…later Wade!!!!
Nix is getting inside my head. He never ever hits except when he does.
Whatever that means.
LYLE IS THE GREATEST BASEBALL PLAYER OF ALLTIME!!!!!!
CHRIS NELSON IS THE SECOND BEST BASEBALL PLAYER OF ALLTIME!!!!!
RBI TRIPLE FOR GARDY!!!!!!
THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!!!!!!
Poor Bruce Chen seems to always have it rough against the Yankees.
ROBBIE CANO RBI!!!!!!!!
THIS IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL!!!! I think I am going to do a shot of tequila. But WHICH ONE TO DO????
Only the strong survive ag…
Gardner.. Cano.. flood gates are open.
> WHICH ONE
Why not all of them? I’ll join.
Missed it.. why is Cano swiping? Just a busted hit and run?
I have several choices dude:
1) Don Julio Reposado
2) Sauza Tres Generacions
3) Hornitos Anejo
4) Don Julio 70th Anniversary (but not really, waiting to crack that one when I get back on Northern soil next month)
I am rocking out to music and drinking heavily, game muted, I assumed he was just being a dick?
Pronk up.. must have been some sort of running to contact? Cano can’t be stealing on his own.
Well, I would jump all over that Don Julio out of the three available. I am not home now, but have Cazadores blanco and Espolon reposado waiting for me.
PULL HIM ALREADY!!!!!
Woah. You are a fellow Tequila-file!!!! Love you even more ag…
FINALLY…PULLING THE FUCKING LOSER!!!!
Now we got this. No problem.
That a boy Kelley!!!!
10-6. No thanks to Hughes. Idiot.
I just try to remember that as much as I love tequila, that baby don’t care for me.
Strangely enough, it’s the only liquor I can drink without losing it…i.e. hurting someone and ending up in jail.
The K in Kelley stands for K…
Ok, that made no sense.
That is some solid relief pitching right there…
Chris Stewart leads off the 8th with a solid single…
Robbie singles….1st and 2nd with 1 out…
I thought Hafner had one there…great play.
Ichiro is on fire.
I love Ichiro.
…AND he steals 2nd.
I mean, what else can you say about Lyle? Is he the greatest of all-time?
Cue Frank baby…
Shot of Don Reposado ag… :)
Done last night.
