Rubbing it in: Yanks-Pirates Gamer I

Cheap move on the part of the Pirates, having Mazzeroski throw out the first pitch. Some ninety year-old Bombers fan just threw a lamp at his radio. The years go by. The pain stays.

It’s time for revenge.

Comment here on all the action.

  • this is shaping up to be a crappy night.

    Nick-YF June 24, 2008, 7:21 pm
  • Yup. I need to find something else to do…

  • tom gorzallany seriously sucks. We better be able to figure out how to score some damn runs here. That is assuming Rasner keeps us in this game. Yuck.

    sam-YF June 24, 2008, 8:06 pm
  • Oh, Melky… Ugh.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 8:35 pm
  • That was quick. Okay, Rasner not showing his earlier streak today, while the Yanks not scoring an absolutely wild Gorzelanny with 2 GIDP, and leaving the bases loaded after Rasner walked.
    And just now LaRoche scores on a wild pitch after a triple with 2 outs. The Yanks will have to get back to crushing if they want to win this.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:37 pm
  • Ya, Melky with a lot of negative runs for today..

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:38 pm
  • The only err, good I can take from this is that Rasner didn’t walk anybody. Of course, if you groove it, you won’t walk anybody either..

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:40 pm
  • Giambi flexing that OBP by.. getting hit by pitch. Gorzelanny is looking awful, yet the Yanks not finding them hits.
    Let’s score 3-4 more runs off Gorzel, and then we can take out the bullpen, maybe. Go Yanks!

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:43 pm
  • Cano doubles, Giambi to third. 1 out. So now Christian, who I don’t know, and Rasner, who will probably be pinched hit, unless they really intend to let him eat innings, will get to cut into the lead a little bit.
    Amazingly, the Yanks only have 5 hits, though plenty of walks, and 3 of them came from Cano. Season-long slump breaker? Let’s hope so!

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:45 pm
  • Christian drives both of them in with a double, and Molina will pinch hit. 7-3 Yanks, if only Rasner had kept the Yanks just a little bit more in it..

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:46 pm
  • Molina flies out. Christian still at second. Sigh. Still a base hit away from cutting it to 3, let’s go Melky!

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:47 pm
  • Melky and Molina wastes an opportunity to just nudge a little bit closer. Ah well, at least 2 in the books.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:48 pm
  • Rasner with 5 IP, 7 ER. His ERA is actually at 4.5, which is actually respectable for a rookie. And the high volatility between games means technically he’s worth more wins to the Yanks, or something like that.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:52 pm
  • Gorzel got pinched hit for, so he’s done.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:53 pm
  • Hawkins not looking sharp.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 8:54 pm
  • Cano, for all his offensive troubles, seems to be playing some exceptional defense thus far. I shall look this up..

    Lar June 24, 2008, 8:55 pm
  • But the 543 was mighty nice. Quick release and strong throw by ARod, great turn by Cano. Smooovie.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 8:56 pm
  • Getting ass-pounded by the Pirates…un-fucking real. This team is maddening.

    krueg June 24, 2008, 8:57 pm
  • Hawk then gives up a double to McClouth, his second on the night. Gas, meet match.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 8:57 pm
  • Nice rope by Jeter there on the fan-interference double.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:03 pm
  • Abreu hits one off the moon that comes down at shortstop, now ARod grounds out 5-3 and Jeets is still at second. Yates comes out as Pirates swap for Damaso Marte.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:08 pm
  • Too bad Abreu and ARod haven’t took advantage. Bah.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 9:08 pm
  • Giambi down swinging.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:11 pm
  • Jason Bay doubles to the LF corner to lead off the Pirate 7th.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:16 pm
  • Lead off double wasted. They might not win this either way, but I want them to keep fighting. Score these runs. Add them up. It’s a damn cheap run, and should be a certain run.
    Just like how Bay doubled and Doumit at least moves him to third.. with a single.. hehe..

    Lar June 24, 2008, 9:17 pm
  • Doumit with a sharp single to right pushes Bay to third. Nobody out to Adam LaRoche. LaRoche singles to right on the first pitch to score Bay and push Doumit to third.
    Seven swears ain’t enough.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:19 pm
  • Like how the Pirates are tacking on runs. Figures.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 9:19 pm
  • Hawkins is going to stay out there, so this game is conceded.
    Dougie M is up, and will no doubt hit a three run shot.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:20 pm
  • I’m wrong, but only by ten feet as Doug puts it to the track and Doumit tags to make it 9-1.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:20 pm
  • lost 3 of 4 to two shit NL teams…this team is going nowhere.

    krueg June 24, 2008, 9:22 pm
  • i’m turning this garbage off…we’re what, 0-32 when trailing after 8 or something ridiculous???

    krueg June 24, 2008, 9:23 pm
  • On the flip side, the guy I’m facing in Fantasy has Hawkins, so at least it’ll err, help me. Ah well.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 9:23 pm
  • Bautista grounds into the 4-3 double play to end the inning. I must have something better to be doing with my time. Oh, wait.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:23 pm
  • Looks like both the Yanks’ and Sox’ young call-up replacement pitchers got battered tonight. Picked a good night to dedicate the threads to Carlin!

    Atheose June 24, 2008, 9:24 pm
  • Posada: fly out.
    Canoi: fly out.
    Christian: fly out.
    Easy to type at least.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:28 pm
  • because I’m no longer watching this game, I figured I’d take a look around baseball. Hope none of you have Arroyo on your fantasy team:
    It’s hard to quantify just how rough Bronson Arroyo’s start was, but thankfully, there are stats like this to put it in perspective. Arroyo is the FIRST STARTER in modern baseball HISTORY to give up at least 11 hits and 10 runs in just an inning of work. That’s going all the way back to 1900, when Roger Connor was the all-time home run king, with 138!

  • 15 hits by the Pirates starting lineup.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:31 pm
  • Wow, poor Arroyo. I always liked him.

    Atheose June 24, 2008, 9:32 pm
  • Gomez pinch-hits a single to right. Why not.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:34 pm
  • This is simply silly. I’m done. See you tomorrow.

    Lar June 24, 2008, 9:44 pm
  • 11-3 pirates.
    12-3 pirates.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:46 pm
  • 19 hits by the Pirates tonight, tying their season high. Glad to oblige.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:47 pm
  • Ooh!! An out!
    Okay.. pinch hitter for Edwar, Cabrera, and Jeter to start the nine-run rally in the top of the ninth. Riiiiigghhhhtt.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:49 pm
  • Betemit safe on LaRoche’s E, but Melky grounds into the 6-3 DP. Captain takes the likely last cuts of the game.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:56 pm
  • Jeter walks on a ful count. Abreu up.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:57 pm
  • Abreu homers to right center, making the score 12-5 pirates. ARod up.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 9:59 pm
  • ARod takes the first two pitches inside for balls. The 2-0 is chopped foul up third. 2 and 1: same. Deuces: fouled back and right. The next pitch is grounded to third, Bautista throws to first, ball game.
    Pirates 12, Yankees 5.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 10:02 pm
  • Well, that was fun AND productive. Now I’m going to go home and stick needles in my eyes. Maybe light my face on fire and put it out with a rake while gargling a broken-glass/drano smoothie.

    attackgerbil June 24, 2008, 10:16 pm
  • Hideous hideous game for which I was nowhere near a computer to comment – though I wish I was nowhere near the TV instead. Gorzellany was so freaking wild at points it boggled my mind that they could not push runs across the plate. It seemed they could have taken balls all night and walked in at least as many as they scored off him before the Pirates turned to their pen. And that is without looking at the Yanks’ own pitching tonight.
    Just terrible terrible baseball.
