Yanks-O’s Gamer III: Will the Real RJ Please Stand Up?

The Yankee website claims they’re gonna play through the rain today. We’ll see. Certainly it’s not the ideal weather to be trotting out your aging and fragile ace, who looked all kinds of bad in his last start. But we’ll see what happens. He faces Bruce Chen, who’s been knocked around but good thus far, but gave our boys fits last season. Your thread for comments. Post away….

  • Andy Phillips in the field! And a good start for the Unit.

    YF April 23, 2006, 1:50 pm
  • Opposite field single for Sheff. Opposite field. Sweet.

    YF April 23, 2006, 1:57 pm
  • A-Rod flies out.

    YF April 23, 2006, 1:59 pm
  • With men on base, no doubt. Yes or no?

    SF April 23, 2006, 2:00 pm
  • Ah, I see Sheff got a single. First inning, so obviously there were men on base…

    SF April 23, 2006, 2:01 pm
  • Yeah. And now a dinger for Tejada. 1-0 O’s.

    YF April 23, 2006, 2:02 pm

    SF April 23, 2006, 2:03 pm
  • Couple of nice plays by A-Rod at the hot corner. And that last one was smoked. This isn’t the dominant Unit of yesteryear, though he’s getting by.

    YF April 23, 2006, 2:07 pm
  • This is like old times, YF. Just you and me and the big, empty internets.

    SF April 23, 2006, 2:08 pm
  • Just like old time for the Giambino as well. Onesies!

    YF April 23, 2006, 2:09 pm
  • And that, Randy, is why you want Jorge behind the plate. Line single.

    YF April 23, 2006, 2:13 pm
  • Just like old times for the Giambino? What, is he injecting horse drugs into his ass again?

    SF April 23, 2006, 2:14 pm
  • Single for Cano extends his streak. Also, we note again that he walked TWICE last night. TWICE. He should watch out for lighning strikes….
    Come on, Andy!

    YF April 23, 2006, 2:14 pm
  • hello, world!

    NickYF April 23, 2006, 2:15 pm
  • Andy!

    NickYF April 23, 2006, 2:17 pm
  • RBI for Philips. Hoot! Nice base running, too.
    We’re off now. Other YFs out there will have to hold down this fort. Yanks up 2-1. Need to pile on…..

    YF April 23, 2006, 2:18 pm
  • SF, Giambi is injecting a special thing now…health! Don’t forget…the guy was the left-handed dopleganger of Manny for years!

    walein April 23, 2006, 2:18 pm
  • Ah, yeah, Giambi was all-natural. I forgot.

    SF April 23, 2006, 2:21 pm
  • All I know is that the past two years, Manny’s started equally stunted, if not slower than Giambi.

    walein April 23, 2006, 2:28 pm
  • going to bottom of the 3rd, Yanks lead 2-1.

    NickYF April 23, 2006, 2:28 pm
  • the Giambino!

    NickYF April 23, 2006, 2:43 pm
  • Unit with the k on a slider.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 2:48 pm
  • Nice play by Chris Gomez going back to field a pop-up. One away.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 2:52 pm
  • Cano went with an outside pitch to the track in left center, about 400 feet. Almost powered it over.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 2:56 pm
  • Whoa, just checked in on this game – the third could have been a HUGE inning for the Yanks – two CS?? Man. And Damon ended the second pretty much single-handedly.
    And yes, I do know you’re ahead, but you’re as sloppy as we are.

    rk April 23, 2006, 2:56 pm
  • There have been a couple of times this year where I have been wondering if they are outside of their minds when on the base paths. I don’t know if it is the runner, or if Bowa is taking chances, or what. I missed the third so if anyone wants to tell me about those two cs, I would appreciate it.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 2:58 pm
  • Announcers on wcbs are speculating that this week is a make or break week for Andy Phillips.
    Orioles down in order, with Johnson overmatching Gomez to end the inning.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:01 pm
  • Damon hit a slow roller that Tejada reached but didn’t have a throw. Jeter with a pulled double; Damon holds at second.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:05 pm
  • time for sheff to put this game away

    NickYF April 23, 2006, 3:06 pm
  • Big pitch here, 3 and 1 count, no outs to sheff

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:07 pm
  • Count goes full on a questionable strike.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:08 pm
  • bases juiced with A-Rod coming up. No outs

    NickYF April 23, 2006, 3:09 pm
  • Walks Sheff to load ’em for ARod. Pitching change coming; Chen is done.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:09 pm
  • Halama is in for Baltimore.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:11 pm
  • High pop to right; ARod was just a little underneath it. Damon scores, Jeter to third, Sheff holds at first.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:14 pm
  • Shift is on for Giambi.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:14 pm
  • Snap throw from Hernandez to third, almost picked jeter off. Nice arm

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:16 pm
  • Hard shot by Giambi lined right at Millar, steps on the bag to double up Sheffield.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:17 pm
  • crap

    NickYF April 23, 2006, 3:17 pm
  • Conine almost gets a hold of one but it goes foul, upper deck.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:21 pm
  • Conine hits a high fly ball almost to the track, Damon pulls it in.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:23 pm
  • Another one-two-three inning for Johnson.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:25 pm
  • WCBS just did an injury update; Dotel is still shut down with stiffness in his elbow. Aaron Small will make one more start in AAA in five days and may be back in NY next weekend.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:27 pm
  • Cano with a base hit between first and second. He’s 2 for 3 on the day.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:29 pm
  • Phillips grounds into FC. Meh.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:30 pm
  • Tejada singles hard to right center, Damon plays it on one hop. Tejada has all three Baltimore hits today. Gibbons up.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:33 pm
  • Gibbons strikes out; Hernandez is quickly behind 0 and 2.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:35 pm
  • Javy Lopez grounds to third; ARod to second for the fielder’s choice. Top of the order coming up for NY.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:38 pm
  • Brower is in for Halama; Jeter up with one out.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:45 pm
  • Tejada makes a great stab; wouldn’t have had a play at first; threw it into the third row of the seats behind first base; Jeter to second. Scored a hit with an E-6 for the advance.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:47 pm
  • Sheff grounds out to third; Mora looks Jeter back to second and gets the out at first. Two away for ARod.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:48 pm
  • ARod walks. Overshift is on for Giambi with two outs. And he’s ahead 2-0 in the count.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:52 pm
  • Yes!

    walein April 23, 2006, 3:53 pm
  • Base cclearing double for Giambi

    walein April 23, 2006, 3:54 pm
  • Giambi goes the other way on a pitch low and away, and doubles off the left field wall, scoring Jeter and Arod. 5 Ribs for Jason. Yeehaw!

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:54 pm
  • End of seven; BAL 1, NY 7. Johnson is at 89 pitches. I wonder if he will come out?

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:56 pm
  • Johnson stays in, Millar grounds out, Phillips grounds out.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 3:59 pm
  • Crosby, who replaced Damon in center at the top of the eighth, strikes out looking, stranding Posada. We head to the ninth, and Rivera is pitching to get some work. Hasn’t pitched since Toronto.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 4:09 pm
  • ARod with a play way behind third and throws Conine out. Had plenty of time.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 4:10 pm
  • Mora strikes out swinging. Tejada comes up.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 4:13 pm
  • Tejada with ANOTHER base hit. 4-4, the only hits Baltimore has.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 4:15 pm
  • Crosby in deep center makes the catch to record the third out. Great outing by Johnson (subtract Tejada, it’s a no hitter), awesome power display by Giambi (3 for 4, 5 ribs, 2 HR). He hit everything rilly rilly hard today; the one out was a bullet straight at Millar.
    Baltimore: 1 run, 4 hits, 2 error
    New York: 7 runs, 13 hits, 0 errors
    I feel good.

    attackgerbil April 23, 2006, 4:22 pm
  • Nice play by play gerbil.
