Dump Day?

Some MILB News

Clint red thunder Frazier popped his 1st Georgia Tater at SWB..

The Bomber prospect, who is looking to hang his cleats next to Booty model Jen Selter’s  form fitting Yoga pants, smacked the Big Fly off a Brand name, Luke Giolito, the hot shot top prospect in DC-GM Mike Rizzo’s Prospect Porn Collection….

“She lives in New York,” Frazier said with a smile. “I think she’s 22. I’m 21. I’m single. Let’s hook this up!”

Red Thunder isn’t exactly in NY..but.. SWB is close enough if you’re from Georgia, we get it,  we’ve been in Goose Neck Ga. and thought it was Macon..

Peace Love and Understanding

I don’t want to make light of this dramatic situation, not that there’s anything wrong with that

The Big Dump?

“No matter what happens, I’m at peace with myself. I think I can contribute. I think I can help out in the clubhouse, but if not, I have two beautiful daughters waiting for me in Miami.”Alex Rodriguez

Whatever is going down today  at 11 AM, the Bombers have hi-jacked the back pages with this ominous press conference featuring #ARod… Head Moola Junior Steinbrenner is hosting a Yacht Rock party at Hank’s  so he can’t make it, but Al Yankzeera henchmen  the  CashMan  and Psycho Joe will be guarding Alex’s gun side as he reads his hostage tape to  the world….

Break out the kleenex boys, Fan Duel has odds on who sheds more tears Humpty Teixeira or Dumpty Rodriguez

Das Kluber

The Great Andrew Miller got all the buzz yesterday, and he deserves any and everything positive that comes his way, he seems like one of the good guys…


The real Bomber kryptonite in this 5-2 loss was the mighty Das Kluber who  once again stymied our home town heroes with his mysterious presence on the mound…..

Flash in the Pan mentioned how difficult it is to  pick up Das Kluber’s delivery, so his pitches ranging in the 93 MPH area, actually play  a lot faster as they  approach the plate.. When Flash isn’t carrying Al Yankzeera’s water, he makes some good points…

Das-Kluber picked up  15 swings and misses 12 came from his curve and slider, so he gave up very little plate real  estate in this one..

8 innings, 5 hits, 2 runs, 8 K’s, 1 BB… dominant

Miller took over in the 9th with a 5-2 lead and coughed up  a lead off single to Captain Gardner, before punching out the DoughBoy, and  Humpty Teixeira…McCan’t ended the torture on a 6-3 ground out…

The Bomber’s actually had the lead in this game for 4 innings before Sabathia morphed into a bad apple, fermenting a 2-0 lead into a  3-2 deficit by the 6th inning.

The Bombers  shockingly scored first off Das Kluber who in 2 outings vs the Yanks this year

16 innings, 10 hits, 3 runs, 16 K’s, 1 BB,  196 pitches

Gary Sanchez was once again in the middle of the offense as the Yanks took a 2-0 in the 2nd inning

McCann flied out to left. 0 0
Castro singled to left. 0 0
Gregorius struck out swinging. 0 0
Sánchez doubled to deep center, Castro scored. 0 1
Hicks singled to right, Sánchez to third. 0 1
Sánchez scored, Hicks to second on wild pitch by Kluber. 0 2
Torreyes grounded out to shortstop. 0 2

Hey don’t look now but the Bronx Bumbler Automatic Hicks is killing it in August..

6 for 19, a .316 BA, and .878 OPS 35% on base, 1 HR and 2 RBI’s……..! Look out Jackie Bradley Jr…

#CC-U-Later ?

Unfortunately it’s starting to look like CC Sabathia could be on that $88M TS&R train outta NY with his OK but buzzing around the mediocre line  outing…

CC has had a rough 9 outing run here, the media is starting to put the duck label on the Big Man

Over nine starts since June 22, Sabathia is pitching to a 6.62 ERA and a .295 batting average against while surrendering 64 hits and 11 home runs with 20 walks in 53 innings. This includes Saturday’s performance, when the big lefty allowed nine of the last 15 batters he faced to reach base before leaving with two out in the sixth on the wrong side of a 3-2 score.

I understand saying his clock is ticking, but unlike Sanchez, Judge, Austin or Refsynder, is Green or Cessa really kicking the door down to get into  this rotation?

Hal  possibly eating A-Rod’s money is understandable he’s blocking a useable pool spot that kids raking at AAA plus Sanchez need to get their feet  wet in…There is legitimate excitement waiting to  see Sanchez, Judge, Austin, and for me Gamel

Is anybody setting their appointment book for Chad Too Green or Louie Cessa’s next outing?

With Mitchell  and Kaprielian out, the only buzz pitching prospect is Severino.. Green has shown some flashes, and I would like to  see him get a shot here over the next  8  weeks, but I don’t think he’s enough juice to push Sabathia and his hefty plus $30M out the door

Get those MRI machines warmed up Stevie D

CC got into  a lot of bad counts, and Bad Counts Matter when you no longer have 97 at the letters to  bail you out of trouble

“I got myself into bad counts, I guess,” said Sabathia, who allowed a fourth-inning solo home run to Jason Kipnis and a sixth-inning, tie-breaking solo shot by Mike Napoli. “The home runs were on fastball counts in bad spots. I couldn’t go to my cutter. That made it tough for me.”

He was actually 1/3 of an inning from pitching a #bogus Quality Start, and on paper you’d have to  say, that wasn’t awful vs a first place team..


Sabathia is piling up HR’s allowed, ( 9 in his last 7 starts) BB’s 7 in his last 11 innings, and going through his game logs over the last  9  starts more often  then not he’s either putting the team in an  early hole or unable to hang on to  a lead

Sabathia will be an interesting case this winter, but at  the moment I don’t see any alarm  set that ends his season, unless he lands on the DL….

The Bombers were technically still in this game despite Kluber finding his high  gear  as the game rolled on but Gidrool Central made sure the bombers were gonna land on .500 by dinner time

Swarzak gave up  a Davis HR in the 7th  to make it 4-2, and Goody gave up a walk, a cross up  with Sanchez caused a pass ball, and an RBI single capped the scoring at  5-2

    Thanks for 2009 Alex,
    C Ya !!!!

    • My guess based on him being still on the reserve list for today’s game… He’s gonna tell the press to back off his manager and GM, he’s not going anywhere and he doesn’t care if he sits the bench

      And he’ll be going to ST… That’s my guess

  7. OK what about the Money he’s owed? on or off the books That’s the difference between a Lux tax and no lux tax?

  9. Psycho Joe says that he and Alex have to talk about if he plays between now and Friday.
    Why don’t you just send Alex text messages like you did with Posada, you friggin psycho shithead.

  10. 2 down,, 2 to go.
    McCant & Headley next please.


    August 7, 2016 at 1:26 pm

  11. If Teixeira would have taken this offensive approach of hitting line to line 3 yr’s ago, and stayed healthy, he’d be on an Ortiz / Jeter farewell tour…

    Yes Donny I did hear that, makes sense, glad Kay had the sense to ask the question, thought it might go by the wayside

    Hey noogsie, Psycho Joe is starting to be that guy that when he says anything in ear shot, you have to take an immediate shower

    Hate to say it but the position in need of vacancy even before Headless in 2017 might be CC… Especially if Severino, Mitchell, Kaprelian, Green, Cessa, longer shots Sheffield, Tate, Acevedo, Brady Lail, or that kid Chance Adams at AA who is doing pretty good are ready to go


    August 7, 2016 at 3:00 pm

  12. Nice win despite Psycho joe with some strange pitching maneuvers didn’t understand leaving Tanaka in if it’s 1 batter, then putting the lesser pitcher Warren in a bad spot with runner on base

    Great DP to kill that 9th inning

  13. OK Boys some timeline stuff.. McCann passes through waivers can Cashman find a buyer or do they want him around for 2 months tutoring Sanchez?

    Cashman said ARod is free to sign with another team if he chose, not held to the special advisor contract if he wants to play. #Yankees

    Perfect 9th for Ben Heller and the RailRiders get their 19th shutout, 5-0, to sweep Syracuse and win their ninth straight home game.

  17. If i know the duplicitous Psych Joe, he slices the meaning to maybe an 8th inning PH, Sal ??
