Yanks-Twins Gamer III: Retribution Redux

Last night our boys were victimized by Jaret Wright, the crappy carpet and baggie of the Metrodome, bad luck, and some questionable umping. Today C-M Wang looks for a bit of revenge against Brad Radke. Here’s your game thread: Swing away….

  • Good start….oh well.

    YF April 16, 2006, 4:13 pm
  • Proof Ron Gardenhire has gone around the bend:
    Rondell White is hitting .093 (!), starting at DH (!!), and hitting clean up (!!!).

    mattymatty April 16, 2006, 4:27 pm
  • Rondell. Automatic.

    YF April 16, 2006, 4:28 pm
  • If you got a guy who isn’t hitting, and can’t play defense, is it necessary to shoehorn him into the lineup at all let alone as the “clean up” hitter? I say thee nay, stupid Gardenhire!

    mattymatty April 16, 2006, 4:32 pm
  • Giambi! 2-0.

    YF April 16, 2006, 4:33 pm
  • Giambino to dead center!

    whatever April 16, 2006, 4:34 pm
  • Wow! Giambi really steroided that one over the fence!

    mattymatty April 16, 2006, 4:34 pm
  • Robby’s warming up, 3-0.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 4:38 pm
  • The best the Yankees can hope for after today is to tie for 4th place. I like it.
    Papelbon: 6 save opportunies, 6 saves, 0.00 ERA.

    Hudson April 16, 2006, 4:52 pm
  • Sox win! Sox win! DAAAHHHH Sox win!
    Oops, wrong thread.

    mattymatty April 16, 2006, 4:53 pm
  • Another brilliant post by Hudson.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 4:54 pm
  • Base hit Sheff…

    whatever April 16, 2006, 4:55 pm
  • Interesting YF doesn’t place any blame on Matsui’s dubious throw to third base

    bosephus April 16, 2006, 5:04 pm
  • As usual, Whatever has nothing to add.
    I note that Mariano would need to convert all five of his next five save opportunities to equal what Papelbon has already accomplished. Only three rookies in MLB *history* have started as strongly as he has.

    Hudson April 16, 2006, 5:05 pm
  • As usual, Hudson demonstrates a level of intelligence that goes beyond moronic into a whole new realm of idiocy.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:17 pm
  • The funny thing is, with each Sox victory, Huddy grows more bold with his lunatic observations.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:21 pm
  • Cano goes deep. 4-0

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:23 pm
  • Jeetah, off the wall double.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:26 pm
  • Bloop 2B for Sheff. We’ll take it. 5-0 NY.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:27 pm
  • Infield hit for Morneau.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:32 pm
  • Wang making the Twins beat the ball into the turf. Slow chopper forceout at 2nd.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:34 pm
  • ANOTHER high chopper over ARods head, runners at 1-2, 1 out

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:36 pm
  • Nice play by Jeter, into the hole and gets the FO at third.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:37 pm
  • Damn, wild pitch, 2-3 now.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:39 pm
  • 2 down, need the out here. Shit, base hit, 2 score as Matsui makes an error. Runner at 2nd. Matsui has not played well out in left recently.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:41 pm
  • Wang gets his 5th K to end the inning. Bad luck for Wang that inning.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:43 pm
  • 5-2, Yanks, into the 6th. Giambi leads off.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:44 pm
  • Giambino. Upper deck shot! 2nd of the game. Yeah Baby.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:45 pm
  • Twin’s announcers said Giambi’s first Home Run to center measured at 450 ft.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:47 pm
  • Bottom of the 6th, 6-2 NY.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:48 pm
  • Wow! Web gem by Jeter! Check it out tonight on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:52 pm
  • 1-2-3 6th for Wang. 6-2 NY.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:54 pm
  • Another hit for Johnny D. 2-4 now.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 5:58 pm
  • Infield hit for Jeter. Derek: 2-4. 2 on for Sheff.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:02 pm
  • Passed ball, up to 2-3.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:04 pm
  • Sac fly for Sheff. 7-2 Bombers.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:05 pm
  • Moon shot for ARod. 9-2 Yanks. Guess I’m flying solo here today, but I’m goin’ out with a Bang.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:07 pm
  • Another hit for Giambi.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:09 pm
  • Twins announcers mention no one has hit more HRs the last 5 years than ARod. Not even Barry Bonds.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:10 pm
  • Matsui walks, 2 on, 2 out.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:14 pm
  • Posada walks, sacks juiced, Twins pitching change.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:15 pm
  • High chopper by Cano ends inning. Bottom of seventh, 9-2 Pinstripers.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:18 pm
  • Seventh inning stretch. Lots of Yankee hats and jerseys in the crowd. Hey, I know that guy.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:21 pm
  • Wang’s seventh strikeout. Nice. He needs more of those.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:22 pm
  • Wang’s 8th K. Atta Baby.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:23 pm
  • Another 1-2-3 for Wang. Sailing along. Top of 8th. 9-2, good guys.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:26 pm
  • Bernie grounds out. Can Carlos Pena be far away?

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:28 pm
  • Damon’s 3rd hit.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:29 pm
  • Yanks also added Jesus Colome, hard throwing righty from Tampa Bay. Control problems but a very live arm. Worth a chance.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:32 pm
  • Jeter DP, bottom of 8th coming up. 9-2 New Yorkers.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:33 pm
  • Wang’s day is over. Very nice outing.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:34 pm
  • Chacon in. He’s out of the pen today because of the off days. RJ starts Tuesday against, I believe, the Blue Jays.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:37 pm
  • 2B for the Twins. C’mon Shawn.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:38 pm
  • Wang: 7 I.P., 7 hits, 1 earned run, 8 strikeouts.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:39 pm
  • Another 2B for Twins, 9-3.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:40 pm
  • hitting chacon hard.

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 6:41 pm
  • Twins announcers mention RJ’s father lived and was a ski instructor in Minnesota. Somehow, I can’t see Randy Johnson on skis.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:43 pm
  • And a BB by Chacon.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:44 pm
  • Chacon needs to wake up.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:45 pm
  • Rondell White at plate. Can we count on him again for an out? Yes. Another K for Rondell. 2 down.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:46 pm
  • Chacon out, Mike Myers coming in. Somewhere, walein is humming the theme music from “Halloween”.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:48 pm
  • that arod stat surprised me.

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 6:49 pm
  • Base hit through the hole. Bases loaded. Lefthanded Morneau at the plate. This is what they got Myers for.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:51 pm
  • Foul pop, and Phillips and Cano have brain cramps and let it drop. Great.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:52 pm
  • Andy phillips gets bailed out

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 6:53 pm
  • And Myers strikes him out. Way to pick up the clowns at 1st and 2nd. Nice job. On to the ninth, 9-3, Yanks.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:54 pm
  • Hey attack, it’s been a little lonely here today, but I been havin’ fun.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:55 pm
  • Sheff base hit up the middle.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 6:56 pm
  • ARod just misses another Home Run. 3 hits for Arod.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:00 pm
  • arod behind early again and again another long hit opposite way this time. nice double

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 7:00 pm
  • 2nd and 3rd, nobody out.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:00 pm
  • Andy Phillips up

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:01 pm
  • Phillips walks. Bases loaded.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:02 pm
  • Bubba at the plate. Force out at home. 1 down.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:02 pm
  • C’mon Jorge…

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:03 pm
  • nice fielding by Bowa. Should sub him for Phillips.

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 7:05 pm
  • Posada Ks, 2 down. Cano up

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:06 pm
  • Cano out on a high chopper. Last of the ninth coming up, 9-3, Bronx Boys.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:08 pm
  • Ron Villone comes in to pitch the ninth.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:09 pm
  • Great play by ARod, and what an arm! 1 down.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:10 pm
  • Whatever seems to care too much :-)

    Anonymous April 16, 2006, 7:11 pm
  • hey WE. thought i would hop on the thread. great play by arod. i am slow to post, i am on my cell. wow.great recovery on the comebacker

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 7:12 pm
  • Line drive off Villone that almost made a eunach out of him, but, he recovers, grabs the ball, and throws to first for the 2nd out.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:13 pm
  • Nice to see ya attack. Base hit up the middle…wild pitch. Runner on 2nd, 2 down.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • Walk. 2 on. Time to end this, Ron.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:15 pm
  • Ball game. good to see such a solid outing by wang

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 7:17 pm
  • Fly ball to center, Bernie makes the play, and that’s the ballgame. Final, 9-3 Yankees.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • That’s for sure attack.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:19 pm
  • Back to .500

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • On to Toronto after an off day tomorrow.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:21 pm
  • I believe we miss Halladay, who has been sitting and I believe is supposed to pitch against Boston in the weekend series, if I’m not mistaken. I do believe we’ll see AJ Burnett. That’ll be interesting.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • Well, maybe we won’t see Burnett. After checking, I see it’s only a 2 game series against the Jays. Burnett pitched Saturday, so with normal rest, he would start Thursday.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • Can’t imagine the Jays would start Burnett on short rest, since he’s been, shall we say, a little tender, so far this season.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:32 pm
  • WE – I think you are right, we won’t see Burnett. This series should be quite a test for the Yankees pitchers, even if it is a short series. Toronto’s bats are on fire right now. They have five batters with an OPS over 1000 and more than 20 at bats. Hopefully, they all caught colds playing in the monsoon today against the chisox.

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 7:47 pm
  • attack, Yeah, Jays will want to make a statement to the Yanks that they are a team to be reckoned with. After Toronto took 2 of three in Boston without Halladay or Burnett pitching, they may very well be.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 7:54 pm
  • Looks like Johnson vs. Chacin in game one, and I would guess Lilly in game 2 on Wednesday. Both are coming of wins against Boston, and Wednesday’s game is on ESPN. Now I need to find a way to not be at work on Wednesday.

    attackgerbil April 16, 2006, 8:19 pm
  • attack, Damn, that Wednesday game is a day game? I’ve got the same problem.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 8:44 pm
  • After a slow start, Jason Giambi is now hitting .344/.543/.781. Nice. Hope he can be fairly consistent with this over the course of the year. Time will tell.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 9:46 pm
  • “Whatever seems to care too much”
    Naah, you can’t care too much if your a Yankee or Red Sox fan, can ya’?
    I’m just a passionate Yankee fan, sometimes good, sometimes not so good. Just felt I wanted to keep the thread going here today, even if it was pretty much by myself.

    whatever April 16, 2006, 9:52 pm
  • And, I believe, this is comment number 100. SF would be proud. (If I was a Sox fan, that is) So my work is done here. It was fun, and the Yanks won today.
    So, as Andre Bocelli would sing, ” Time to say goodbye…”
