Seriously, Now: Royals-Yanks Gamer II

One loss to the Royals, fine. But two? Not acceptable. It’s a 4:00 start this afternoon, but we’re gonna get you rollin’ on the game thread early. Jeremy Affeldt goes for KC; Wang on the hll for the Bombers. Time to take control of this series. Your place for comment is here….

  • Why do the Yankees get all the Saturday afternoon games, and we have to wait ’til nighttime for our Sox?

  • Why are they playing a holiday weekend game at night? It’s a travesty. They want young kids to get into baseball and then have a Memorial Day Saturday contest at 7pm? Dumb marketing, and unfair to the younguns.

  • Catastrophe strikes Team YF this morning. First the back goes out. Then the car dies (in Queens, no less; teach us to slum it in the boro of the Mets). Then the subway not running to our stop. Woof. The good news: we return to find the Yanks up 8-0 in the 5th, Wang tossing a one hitter. Okay, so they’re playing the Royals. Whatever. We’ll take it.

  • Uh-Oh. Looks like Wang might be cooked. Doubles, doubles, everywhere, and all in the air. BULLPEN!

  • Well, it didn’t take the Royals long to revert to form…

  • Where were all these runs last night is what I want to know…

  • That seems to be the tale of the Yankees’ season thus far. 15-1 blowouts, then 3-2, 4-2 losses.

    Paul SF May 27, 2006, 6:10 pm
  • Seems to be the tale… but isn’t. Yanks’ last 14 wins have been 5 runs or less.

  • Soooo, not to pour oil on the Arod’s clutchness debate, but he’s got 3 rbi with 2 HRs in a blowout game. Does that count as meaningful? And I think if the score stands, he’ll have the game-winning rbi, too.

  • Hey; on the plus side, blowout wins and close losses are good for the run differential. =)

  • I was kind of hoping Alex would get that third home run. I was anxious to see how many knuckleheads out there would actually be criticizing a guy for hitting 3 dingers in a game. Oh well. I guess he’s not that clutch.

    YF May 27, 2006, 6:44 pm
  • YF: haha. I know this has been brought up before but bears repeating: how many blowouts were that way BECAUSE of Arod? Probably quite a few. Oh well *shrug* Knuckleheads will be knuckleheads.

  • Oh by the way; Nick-Yf-
    I picked up Melky as my 4th outfielder on my fantasy team,(I cut Nixon). The Rook has gotten himself 4 Ribbies today. I wholeheartedly agree w/you that he is one of the most positive developments for the Yank’s this season.

  • Ovah. 15-4. Stinnett, Melky, and Cairo carry the club, with a little help from Uncle Alex. Hoot.

    YF May 27, 2006, 6:55 pm
  • Correction: Melky hit 3 RBI’s today.

    bloodyank78 May 27, 2006, 6:56 pm
  • A-Rod sure took his sweet assed time getting out of the batters box after admiring his first home run… where is the outrage? maybe Sweeney will have a little talk with him during batting practice tomorrow. he obviously has no respect for the game. he should probably get plunked on the backside tomorrow.
