Off Grid: Jays-Yanks Gamer I

Hey folks, hope you are having a good last week of August. I’m still away from the keyboard for a little while, so I am sorry about the lack of updates. Tonight, David Phelps is on the mound as the Yankees host the Jays. Comment away, I’ll be back soon.

  • No further damage…

    2 good innings, other than the solo shot.

    krueg August 27, 2012, 7:29 pm
  • Couple hard hits…right at people though.

    krueg August 27, 2012, 7:35 pm
  • 3 solid innings for Phelps.

    Besides the HR.

  • 1-2-3 for Phelps.

    Low pitch count. Bunch of K’s. Looks really good.

    We need runs.

    Tex is limping though. Not good at all.

  • Soriano blows the save…

    6-7. All with 2 outs.

    This is ridiculous.

  • PS O’s got yet another clutch, comeback, improbable win…

    Remember those? It’s been a few years.

    krueg August 27, 2012, 10:07 pm
  • Have we even had a walk off this season?

    I don’t think so.

    Because we suck.

  • JETER CLUTCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Love that man.

    IronHorse - YF August 27, 2012, 10:11 pm
  • Now he’s 1 for 14 off Janssen :). Llove it. Let’s get the walkoff please!!

    IronHorse - YF August 27, 2012, 10:12 pm
  • It’s strange pulling for Lowe.

    krueg August 27, 2012, 10:24 pm
  • K-urtis.

    It’s getting a little ridiculous now.

    krueg August 27, 2012, 10:30 pm
  • I have a bad feeling about this…

    krueg August 27, 2012, 10:35 pm
  • Called it.

    Stupid fucking mistake blows it.


    krueg August 27, 2012, 10:39 pm
  • Inexcusable. They just tthrew this game away.

    IronHorse - YF August 27, 2012, 10:39 pm
  • Nix could have and should have looked him back to third.

    IronHorse - YF August 27, 2012, 10:42 pm
  • Game. Thatt one hurt. Good night.

    IronHorse - YF August 27, 2012, 10:53 pm
  • Tex is out for at least 5 games…this weekend with the O’s could put us out of first place.

    I’m honestly surprised it’s taken this long.

  • Sweeny Murti ‏@YankeesWFAN
    Timing could not be worse to lose Teixeira. Starting Fri Yanks play 10 straight, and 13 of 16, vs BALT and TB.

  • Would be really nice if Curtis picked this moment to stop swinging at every breaking ball in the dirt.

    IronHorse - YF August 28, 2012, 9:36 am
  • Do you think we can actually hold on?

    The pitching has been bad.

    The offense was already bad WITH Tex…

    This is trouble.

    krueg August 28, 2012, 1:15 pm
  • We can hold on because we have an easier schedule than our chasers and because our offense is still better than theirs even without A-Rod and Teixeira. Our pitching is all over the place. If Nova and Hughes are on, it’s at least as good as theirs. If they stink, we’re in trouble.

    IronHorse - YF August 28, 2012, 1:36 pm
  • Nova is on the DL. Who knows when Pettitte gets back?

    We need Hughes to step up and be really good the rest of the season.

    Did you see the lineup tonight? Vomit city.

    krueg August 28, 2012, 5:16 pm
  • Forgot about Nova. I like Phelps anyway, but the added pressure on him and Hughes is not encouraging. They got there new lefty-masher jjoining the team today (forget name) – not sure who’s being sent down to make room for him. They need a win pretty badly here against the Bautista-less Blue Jays…

  • I am afraid IH…very afraid…

    If Steve Pearce is the answer, then Cashman is a great GM.

    I am not going to hold my breath.

  • Leadoff walk on 9 pitches…

    Here we go. These next few weeks are going to be miserable.

    krueg August 28, 2012, 7:11 pm
  • Muscle guns Davis stealing…huge.

    krueg August 28, 2012, 7:13 pm
  • Scoreless first…15 pitches.

    Great start for Hughes…

    krueg August 28, 2012, 7:14 pm
  • Leadoff single for Jeter…

    krueg August 28, 2012, 7:17 pm
  • Strike out/throw out DP.

    Finding new ways to fucking suck.

    We might not even make the fucking playoffs.

    This is sickening.

    krueg August 28, 2012, 7:21 pm
  • Bizarre and scary seeing Pearce in the cleanup spot with Martin behind him. Lord. The O’s have stocked up on lefty pitching specifically to take the Yanks down now that the Yank lineup is all but devoid of righty sluggers. Jones picked the wrong time to slump. We’ve got Jeter and switch-hitting Swisher batting righty, both of whom have been hitting great, but that’s 2/9s of an offense. After that it’s a whole lot of nothing from that side of the plate. Should be interesting. Last night’s win was huge and could very easily have gone the other way if Cano doesn’t make that brilliant DP in the 6th. Day game today and then three against Baltimore. It’s been a long time since the Yanks played a meaningful game against the O’s. As much as I wish they had a bigger cushion, I love Showalter and am really looking forward to that series.

  • Et tu CC? Et tu?

    krueg August 29, 2012, 1:51 pm
  • SICK DP.

    That was awesome.

    krueg August 29, 2012, 1:53 pm
  • Didn’t matter…there’s 1 run…more to come…

    All with 2 outs.

    krueg August 29, 2012, 1:55 pm
  • Lead blow.

    Like it’s our fucking job.

    And CC now falls prey to “Yankees Suck Disease”…

    krueg August 29, 2012, 1:57 pm
  • …and another run…

    Round and round they go…how many runs will they score…
