The Yanks need to win a series against a team that starts Sal Fasano. On the other hand, the Yanks are starting Miguel Cairo tonight. Hmmm. Wright vs. Hamels. Comment away!

  • Melky is back, and batting 7th. Go Leche!

    yankeemonkey June 21, 2006, 7:02 pm
  • Damon gets it going well. Hamels looks good though. Works quick. Should be fun to watch the rook.

    YF June 21, 2006, 7:08 pm
  • Hmm. FC, but Damon looked safe?

    YF June 21, 2006, 7:09 pm
  • sooth time: A-Rod hit a homer in his first at bat. I’m calling it.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:11 pm
  • HBP instead. He would have and Cole knew it.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • Giambi Ks, looking at the fastball. Did he think it was a ball, or was he fooled?
    Alex HBP. And pissed.

    YF June 21, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • You must mean Alvin Rodriguez, the third baseman for the Saugus Knights little league squad, no?

    SF June 21, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • Alvin Rodriguez is not clutch.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:15 pm
  • Interesting call, Nick. Instead they hit him. Message? Let’s see what happens now.

    YF June 21, 2006, 7:15 pm
  • I’m testing my predictive powers for the roulette tables in Vegas.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:17 pm
  • Wright defends himself with the glove; Rollins singles. What does it say that Wright is always getting hit by balls drilled up the middle? Coincidence, or bad pitching?

    YF June 21, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • bad pitching. He’s just so hittable it’s a joke.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • His pitches do not miss bats.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • 2 runners on and 1 out as Jaret Wright forgets to forget that he’s Jaret Wright.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:24 pm
  • I don’t believe what I just read! to quote Old man Buck. Wright k’s Burrell and Howard to end the inning. Good job, Jaret!

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 7:31 pm
  • Wright misses _just_ outside for ball one. The one-oh is looped toward center but Cairo makes a good catch ranging to his right to record the first out.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • Three-one to Bell: fouled up first for a full count with one away, one out, no one on in the bottom of two.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • The payoff looked like a splitter on the outside corner. Bell fought it off foul up first.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:39 pm
  • Full again: fouled out of play up the right field line. Bernie chased it but ran out of room.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:39 pm
  • Another 3-2: Bell is walked on a fastball low. Long at bat. One out to Frank Zappa Sal Pasano, who pops out to Jeter.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:41 pm
  • The pitcher is up. Hamels takes ball one, then strike one. Swinging strike two. The 1-2: inside on the corner for strike three, side retired.

    Anonymous June 21, 2006, 7:43 pm
  • Jaret Wright leads off the top of the third for NY.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:45 pm
  • Wright hits a comebacker to Hamels that he throws to Howard for the first out.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:46 pm
  • Looping curve for ball one to Damon. Fastball away for ball two. The 2-0: Johnny takes it for a strike at the knees. The 2-1 is cut on and hit foul for 2-2. The deuces: way outside for a full count.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:47 pm
  • The payoff is low and away to put Damon on first. Captain up.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:48 pm
  • Lefty Hamels is holding Damon close to first. Jeter taks an outside and high pitch that was a pseudo-pitchout. Damon had a short lead and did not get much of a jump as Hamels has a very quick motion and JD is thrown out easily by Pasano.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:49 pm
  • Damon had no chance on that steal. It’s 2-2 to Jeter: ground ball up the middle just off of Rollins for a single with two away.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:50 pm
  • Giambi up. He’s swinging at the first pitch and it’s 0-1. Looks at strike two on the low outside corner. 0-2 is strike three looking on the outside corner. It looked a touch outside, but it was a very good pitch.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • Rollins hits a lead-off single for Philly in the bottom of the third.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:54 pm
  • Chase Utley is up for Philadelphia. Swings at the 0-1 outside change to make it 0-2. Rollins is holding on first. Thought he would be running.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:56 pm
  • 0-2 is a curve outside for 1-2. The Phanatic is beating up on a Yankee fan, bopping him on his NY hat-wearing noggin.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:57 pm
  • Utley is retired on what looked like a splitter inside for the first out, Rollins holding at first. Abreu up.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:58 pm
  • Abreu swings and misses at the first pitch from Wright. 0-1: pitch out. Rollins wasn’t going.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 7:59 pm
  • The 1-1 is a breaking pitch over for a strike. The 1-2: at the letters for ball 2.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:00 pm
  • Attack, my gamechannel is down. You’re all I got in the way of a guide for the game.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 8:01 pm
  • The 2-2: fastball just a bit high to make the count full.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:01 pm
  • I’ll do my best Nick. The full count was a change fouled off. Another payoff: fastball out swinging, Rollins gets caught in the rundown and is tagged out to end the inning.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:03 pm
  • The fastball was at the letters.. good pitch. Abreu swung under it. Posada threw to Jeter immediately, and Rollins was frozen half way between first and second.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:04 pm
  • Rollins looked pretty far out of the baseline there. Not too much to beef about.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:05 pm
  • seems like Wright actually has good stuff tonight. He’s missing bats.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 8:06 pm
  • Wonder if Alex could have turned on that inside fastball he took for ball 4.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:07 pm
  • ARod is up to face Hamels. The count is 2-1: high fastball for ball three. ARod is walked to bring up Jorge. He misses away and low for ball one. Pasano comes out to talk about it.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:07 pm
  • Well it is the Phillies, Nick. [Joke] He’s looked solid. Not spectacular. Solid.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:08 pm
  • 1-0 is a strike on the outside corner.
    Nick, have you checked ESPN’s gamecast? It’s not too bad.
    It’s now 1-2 on Jorge: big breaking pitch over the plate for strike three. Good pitch.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:08 pm
  • Jorge spectatin’ on the curve. Backwards k.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:09 pm
  • Nick, Wright is going deep in the count a lot.
    Bernie fouls the first pitch off. The 0-1: another great breaking pitch for 0-2. If Hamels can keep that working, trouble.
    No, he can’t. He throws an 80-foot curve for a WP to advance ARod to second.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:10 pm
  • Ugh.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:10 pm
  • Bernie grounds out to third for the 6-3. ARod holds at 2nd. Melky looks at ball one.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:11 pm
  • Come on Leche!

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:11 pm
  • 2x Ugh.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:12 pm
  • 80-foot = 50-foot. Cabrera pops out in foul territory off of first to end the inning.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:12 pm
  • hey AG, thanks for the ESPN gamecast heads-up.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 8:14 pm
  • Have I mentioned tonight—it’s becoming a daily ritual—how annoying the Philly uniforms are? They’re underoos, for god’s sake! The stars over the i’s and in the p on the cap…awful. And why is there batting helmet solid red when they wear 2-tone caps? Really this shouldn’t be an issue, because they should NEVER wear 2-tone caps)?

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:15 pm
  • Burrell misses for strike one. The 0-1 is a change that looked mighty good but is called low. 1-1: Burell lifts a high outside corner fastball to straightway center for the first out. Here comes Howard.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:15 pm
  • Oh my god that changeup was ballsy. DONT TRY THAT AGAIN.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:16 pm
  • Wright throws outside for ball one. The 0-1 is a change over the middle taken for strike one. A big curve gets a check swing strike for 1-2 on Howard. Slurve in the dirt for 2-2.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:17 pm
  • Nice pitch by Wright! That was a ball though.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:17 pm
  • YF: I was thinking the exact same thing. Can’t believe he didn’t hit that one a mile and a half. It was belt high, right down the middle. 1-2 is looking for strike three on the inside corner.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:18 pm
  • Replay looks like it actually was a strike. Way to go Jaret!

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:19 pm
  • The 1-2 was about 3 or 4 inches too far inside. The ump has been calling that corner thoug.
    I like your diatribe about the Phillies unis. They look like they should be worn at a hospital by candy stripers.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:19 pm
  • AG: totally. He shows Howard another one of those floaters over the middle in this game, it’s gonna land in Trenton.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:20 pm
  • Rowand rips a single to right. Two away to Bell. Yeah, it looked closer on the replay then it did in real time.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:20 pm
  • Jorge!

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:21 pm
  • Inning over as they test Posada and he says, SIDDOWN, nose job.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:22 pm
  • Miguel Cairo hits it to straightway center off the glove of Rowand who was playing too shallow for a triple.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:24 pm
  • Wow. If only we coulda got a few past Rowand last year….
    Trip for Cairo. Sweet.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:25 pm
  • Low and away to Wright for ball one, then low again for ball two. Wright hits it to the track to score Cairo on the sac fly to left. Nice, Jaret!

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:26 pm
  • Wright does it all! 1-0.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:26 pm
  • Damon tips it for strike one, then strokes it to left for a single over a leaping Rollins.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:27 pm
  • Jeets up. Hamel is low for 1-0 with one out and a run plated in the top of 5. Jeter hits it on the ground at third and advances Damon to second on the 6-3 FC.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:28 pm
  • Okay. Let’s see if Giambi can do something other than watch the pitches go by….

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:28 pm
  • Jaret Wright is pitching spectacularly. As in “the Phils aren’t likely to score a run, much less get an extra-base hit or even a measly single” good. I mean, he is just unhittable right now.
    Now back to my own thread.

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:29 pm
  • SF with the jinx

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 8:29 pm
  • Giambi up. Curve low and away for ball one. Curve quite a bit outside but called a strike for 1-1. The 1-1 fastball is hit off the end of the bat and foul in left field just off the line.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:29 pm
  • The 1-2 is a fastball way outside for 2-2.
    A. Gerbil sticks pins in his SF effigy.
    Giambi is retired swinging to end the inning.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:31 pm
  • that’s not quite the kind of improvement i was hoping for.

    YF June 21, 2006, 8:31 pm
  • Jason Giambi definitely won’t test positive for injecting rocket fuel into his ass.
    Now back to the Sox-Nats thread.

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:33 pm
  • Graphic on YES showed that Giambi is hitting .194 since May 3rd with RISP. Now it’s worse.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:33 pm
  • Wright throws three consecutive balls to David Bell (!) to lead off the bottom of the fifth, and then walks him with a badly missing pitch high and outside.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:34 pm
  • Wright throws another ball to Zappa Pasano (!) for five consecutive balls.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:35 pm
  • Still unhittable!

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:35 pm
  • Seven consecutive balls as SF is obviously an expert in practicing the black arts of voodoo. Finally a strike for 3-1.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:37 pm
  • Strike two and Fasano is arguing that it wasn’t.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:38 pm
  • Full count to Fasano is popped out of play off third off of a broken bat.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:38 pm
  • Payoff: hit on the ground into a textbook 643 dp for two away.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:39 pm
  • Pitcher up. Wright throws at his ankles for ball one, then high and a bit away for ball two. Wright finally decides to bring a fastball against the pitcher for strike one.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:40 pm
  • 2-1 is way outside. 3-1: Wright walks him. FUGLY.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:41 pm
  • You guys are being awfully tough on a pitcher who hasn’t given up a single run tonight.

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:41 pm
  • Wright must think that Hamels is a threat and pitched around him to get to Rollins. Two away, one on.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:41 pm
  • Yes, SF, but it’s the way he hasn’t given them up that wrinkles my shorts.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:42 pm
  • Third out as Rollins grounds out to first.
    ARod, Posada, Williams coming for NY.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:43 pm
  • it’s the way he hasn’t given them up that wrinkles my shorts
    That’s funny, sad, and very “Red Sox fan circa 2003″…

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:45 pm
  • Rod takes ball one, then strike one as we are in the top of six. Another strike looking, then the K as ARod misses and looks lost in that at bat.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:46 pm
  • Thanks, SF. I was exceedingly proud/ashamed of myself for saying it that way.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:47 pm
  • Posada pops out to left center.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:48 pm
  • Bernie takes a fastball looking for strike one on the inside corner. The 0-1 is a broken bat dribbler foul up first.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:49 pm
  • meanwhile, in news around the league, the ChiSox have 9 runs and it’s only the bottom of the 2nd. They scored 20 runs last night. Nuts.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 8:49 pm
  • Sounds like a perfect time for someone to coldcock AJ Pierzynski, Nick.

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:50 pm
  • The 0-2 is a fastball high. Bernie fouls the 1-2 out of play off the third base line. Another 1-2: 12-6 curve that Bernie grounds out 6-3 to end the inning.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:50 pm
  • For those who hadn’t heard, Barrett’s first game back from suspension is against the ChiSox on July first (I think).

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:52 pm
  • Hello, Phillies? Phillies? IT’S JARET WRIGHT. That’s all.

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:52 pm
  • Isn’t every game the perfect time to coldcock AJ?

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 8:52 pm
  • The Barrett-less Cubs are up 9-1 on Cleveland right now in the top of the sixth as well.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:52 pm
  • SF: now it’s Ron Villone. Looks like Wright lived up to your billing.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:53 pm
  • Villone starts off with fastballs against Utley and is up 0-2 quickly. The 0-2: check swing that he holds up on on the outside change for 1-2.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:54 pm
  • This, by the way, is the right move by Joe. Wright is a 5 inning pitcher and that’s that.

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 8:55 pm
  • I have sooth. Even when I don’t want to.

    SF June 21, 2006, 8:55 pm
  • The 1-2: away for 2-2. Deuces is a defensive swing as Villone was in on the hands; it’s fouled off up third. Another 2-2: strike swinging for one away. Nice pitch by Villone.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:55 pm
  • Abreu looks at a slider (?) by Villone away for ball one. The 1-0: fastball gets away and is high for ball 2. The 2-0 is inside and high for ball 3. Abreu is taking on the 3-0 and looks at a strike on the inside corner. The 3-1 is fouled back to bring the count full.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:58 pm
  • Payoff pitch: outside corner fastball to retire Abreu looking. He was not expecting that pitch it seemed.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:58 pm
  • Burrell looks at ball one. The 1-0 is high. 2-0 is a straight fastball for strike one.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 8:59 pm
  • The 2-1: slider (i think) in the dirt for 3-1. The 3-1 is a breaking pitch way outside for ball four. Danger, danger. Howard to the plate.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:01 pm
  • Howard hits it hard on the ground at Cairo for a 4-3 FC to end the inning.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:02 pm
  • nice inning by Villone and with that I’m heading out of work and getting ready for my trip to Vegas. Be well, all!

    Nick-YF June 21, 2006, 9:03 pm
  • Cairo rips a shot to the left center for a double to start things off for the NY 7th.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:04 pm
  • Have fun in Vegas, Nick. See you later.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:05 pm
  • Cabrera rather than Cairo.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:06 pm
  • Cairo sacs Cabrera to third 1-3. Then AP, pinch hitting for Villone, grounds into the 6-1 to nab Cabrera at home. AP on first. He feels shame. Damon up.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:07 pm
  • Damon works the count full. He hits the first payoff pitch foul, dribbling up first. Proctor is in the pen for NY; we’ll see him in the bottom of the seventh. The next payoff: Damon walks. It’s two on, two out to Jeter.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:09 pm
  • Jeter hits it off the hands to right center to score the run. First and third, two outs to Giambi.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:11 pm
  • Giambi pops out by the on-deck circle to end the inning, swinging on the first pitch.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • Bell, Fasano, Hamels (probably pinch for him) coming up for Philly against Villone in the bottom of the 7th.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • Proctor rather.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:14 pm
  • Proctor has appeared in 35 of the 69 games played by NY so far this year.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:14 pm
  • Proctor is up 1-2 on Rowand. Proctor serves a big curve that he just gets a piece of. Then on the next 1-2, Rowand pops out to Damon for one out.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:16 pm
  • Proctor loses the handle on a slow curve and hits Bell in the back. Don’t think he meant to do that.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:17 pm
  • Victorino will hit for Fasano with one away.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • PB on an inside pitch advances Bell. 1-0: fastball at the knees fouled back and out of play.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:19 pm
  • Myers and Beam in the pen for NY. The 1-1: fastball fouled back as Proctor showed 96 on the gun. Doubtful.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:20 pm
  • Curve in the dirt retires Victorino 2-3 as Posada throws the runner out. Bell holds at second.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • Proctologist rollin’.

    YF June 21, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • Nunez, pinch hitting for Hamels, grounds out to first to end the inning.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • Arod is at a full count. He’s reached base twice tonight on a HBP and BB, along with a K. The payoff: ARod walks on the pitch outside. Posada up with no outs and a runner on first.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:28 pm
  • Nice curve by Fultz. Posada takes it looking, 0-1. Posada hits the next pitch off the end of the bat up first for a foul.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:29 pm
  • Fultz just misses on the 0-2 at the knees. Strike three swinging on the big slider as ARod steals second. One away to Bernie.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:30 pm
  • Looked like a slider. Bernie swung and missed anyway. Looks at a couple of balls and then lines out to left for the second out.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:32 pm
  • Posada struck out on a curve, not a slider… the slider was to Bernie, rather.
    0-1 to Melky: in the dirt for 1-1.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:33 pm
  • LECHE! And some gutsy baserunning by Alex.

    YF June 21, 2006, 9:34 pm
  • Melky with a nice single off the end of the bat to score ARod. Leche. He advances to second on the throw home.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:34 pm
  • YF: Bowa has been bold all season sending runners. Glad it seems to pay off more often than not.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:35 pm
  • No baseball tomorrow. I think I will spend tomorrow night doing yard work, maybe a BBQ, and start reading some over-hyped book about some ancient baseball that I picked up at Border’s last week. ;)

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:36 pm
  • MIGGY! single to right scores Melky. Attaway, boys.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • Howard was shading way far right off first there.

  • Crosby is down 0-2 quickly but works it back to deuces. He fouls a 2-2 back and left off the dugout. He rips a single to right aon a 2-2 to make it first and third, still two outs.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:41 pm
  • Damon up. He singles to right to score Cairo and advance Crosby to second.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:43 pm
  • First and second to Jeter with two outs. He takes strike one. The 0-1 is a curve low. 1-1 is inside and low for ball 2. Condrey is up in the pen for Philly.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:45 pm
  • The 2-1 is ripped foul off first. 2-2 is a breaking pitch hit off the right side of the pitcher, fielded 1-3 to end the inning.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:46 pm
  • (hit to the right side of the pitcher, didn’t actually hit him)
    Farns is in for NY. Contain, Kyle.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:48 pm
  • Rollins to hit for Philly. The 0-1 is a breaking pitch fouled back and left. The 0-2: fastball outside for ball one. 1-2: slider fouled off. 1-2: fastball on the outside corner fouled back.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:50 pm
  • Another 1-2: slider high in the zone popped out to left for the first out.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:51 pm
  • Chase Utley steps in against Farnsworth and fouls off a pitch, then takes ball one, and then another foul for strike two. The 1=2: fastball outside that read 100 on the gun, fouled off.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:52 pm
  • 1-2 again: pop out to Melky in left for two away.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:54 pm
  • Farns blows the 1-1 by Abreu for strike 2. Another fastball on the outside high corner; Abreu swings and misses to strike out and end the inning. Nice, Kyle.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:55 pm
  • Farns: a lot easier when you throw strikes.
    Is this Abreu, the one who’s k’d thrice, our potential new sheff? carefull what you wish for?

  • Wagner just walked two, gave up an infield hit and a 2 rbi single–all with 2 outs in the 9th against the Reds…now the Mets are losing.

    walein June 21, 2006, 9:58 pm
  • Cano grounds up the middle for a single to lead off the top of the ninth.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:58 pm
  • Arod with the 643 DP.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 9:59 pm
  • Is Farnsworth going to come out for the 9th?
    I say he should.

    walein June 21, 2006, 9:59 pm
  • Jorge. YF: I have never been on the Abreu bandwagon.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:00 pm
  • only 15 pitches thrown so far.

    walein June 21, 2006, 10:00 pm
  • Mo’s up in the pen. So is Smith. I think Farns should pitch the ninth.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:00 pm
  • Posada pops out to end the Yankee 9th.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:01 pm
  • strikes out rather.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:02 pm
  • 9-3 final in Boston as Soriano grounds out 4-3 to end the game with runners on second and third.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:03 pm
  • What’s the point of putting Mo up in the pen after he pitched two innings yesterday?

    walein June 21, 2006, 10:04 pm
  • Mo is in for NY. Day off tomorrow, I guess. But after last night, why not rest him unless need be?

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:04 pm
  • Yeah, what Walein said.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:04 pm
  • Not a save situation, Farns looked fine. But okay. I hope he works quick. He’s facing Burrell, Howard and Rowand, the meat of the Phillies lineup.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:06 pm
  • Slider for a ball inside and high, then an off-speed (or was it a slow split?) for a ball high. Then a strike at the knees.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:06 pm
  • 2-1 is a strike swinging on a fastball. 2-2: beautiful pitch that froze Burrell. I think it was a split.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:07 pm
  • Starts off with a strike against Howard. Then another strike. The 0-2: cut in on the hands. MELKY!!! Diving grab in left.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:08 pm
  • Beautiful catch.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:09 pm
  • Rowand is at 1-1 with 2 away. Mo stops a hard-shot comebacker, loses the ball under his legs, recovers, and guns to first to get the out. AMAZING play by Mo. Ball game. Two incredible plays to end it.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:10 pm
  • Wow, how did Mo recover to make that play. It’s easy to forget how incredible of a fielder he is.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:11 pm
  • Enjoy the day off everyone. See you Friday for the white-hot Marlins.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • Got to say…it WOULD have beena save situation for Farnsworth.

    walein June 21, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • Though Baltimore did beat FLA today..

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • nite AG

    walein June 21, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • True, Walein.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:13 pm
  • Jaret Wright with the game-winning RBI. CLUTCH. You can only hope to contain him. ;)

    attackgerbil June 21, 2006, 10:14 pm
  • Yes. See y’all right here Friday. Tomorrow we can all root on our national side of footballers. Good luck to those Yankees. They need all the help they can get.
