Paint The Black

Baseball and Beyond


with 16 comments

The Bombers 8  game winning streak  went up in smoke last night after the White
Sox, behind a pitching gem  from  Miggy Gonzalez,  a Houdini  act from David Robertson and HR’s from Leury Garcia, and Avisail Garcia, crashed the party with a 4-1 win

King Miguel and his Court

The old Yankees used to beat on Gonzalez, at least that’s what Al Leiter’s intel  said, a 6 something ERA against the Yankees, blah  blah…  Lower the Adderall dose Al

Gonzalez in his career before last night against the NY Yankees had thrown 85.1 innings gave up 71 hits, 1.178 WHIP, 3.80 ERA..

The fact he paid tribute to Greg Maddux and the great King and his Court Eddie Feigner last night was a surprise, but far from  a shock..

The Yanks scratched out 4 infield hits, das it….

Castro  got the first one in the 5th, Romine the 6th, Ellsbury a bunt in the 7th, Headley pinch hitting in the 9th…

It was pure ugly before and after those high spots against Gonzalez

8.1 innings, 4 hits, 1 inherited run 1 BB, 4 K’s 2.84 ERA, 88-57 pitches

He left in the 9th after 1 out, and 2 men on base (Headley single, Gardner BB)

Finally the Yanks had a chance with David Robertson coming in

#theRealHoudini High Sox for Hope

It’s always nice to  see Robertson, especially if he’s pitching for somebody else, and last night he showed why there is always Hope when old High Sox enters the game

Ellsbury walked, Headley to third, Gardner to second. 4 0
Holliday struck out swinging. 4 0
Castro walked, Headley scored, Gardner to third, Ellsbury to second. 4 1
Judge grounded into fielder’s choice to shortstop, Castro out at second. 4 1

Aaron Judge had a few chances to  wreck this game, none more then bases loaded, down 4-1 in the 9th.

The Big Man had an off night striking out in the 2nd and 8th, in the 5th he  smacked into a potential rally killing DP, and he sucked the air out of the room with the ground out to end it


I’d gamble to  say Severino’s 8 inning performance was the silver lining in this whole debacle.. His stuff was really good, two of his pitches, fast ball (59) Slider (39) had extreme late life to them


His tempo made Paint It Black seem like a ballad, and his pitch  count was extremely efficient, sans the 7th when he threw 21

innings sevy

The 96 MPH clothesline fast ball the got a little too much plate to L Garcia was a drag, the 3 run Bomb to  A Garcia was the mother of all  crushers, it completely stained a terrific  pitching line..

Kozma blew a tailor made 6-4-3 DP just before the 3 run Tater, but he didn’t throw the hanging slider

It High It Deep put it on the board, Yeah, a hideous call…….

Tanaka / Covey

I’m glad Mike Francesa said it was a good idea to  sit Greg Bird vs Derek Holland because two  easy RHP were on tap  for the White Sox… I wish Francesa would forget Greg Bird ever existed..

    • The streak had to end sometime just surprised it was Gonzalez that totally shut them down. Yankees continually swung at the first pitch,like they had dates after the game.
      At least it was quick.

  2. hey Big D, spot on, and yes it was quick, the last inning had some juice, but man it was ugly.. Hopefully Gonzalez didn’t put them to sleep… Francesa said they were getting two easy RHP, so we might be in deep shit…

  3. Francesa opened his show with the Yanks 15v seconds Mets 15 seconds NBA playoffs every sport known to man …. He recited chapter and verse on the Bulls / Celtics game, so my question is, how could he have watched the NYY game if he was tuned in to the NBA playoffs ?

    He’s got 15 TV’s I get it, but when somebody asked him how Severino looked he said Ok… He gave up the two big HR’s

    Obviously the Pope didn’t pay attention to Severino’s best outing to date… Now Michael Kay raved, over the top rave about Severino, he gets it.. That performance touched on some special qualities, his two pitches were so good he didn’t need the 3rd

    He’s never gonna do that consistently, but man you can see why they ant to try and develop him..

    Official word from the Yankees on Gleyber Torres is “mild right rotator cuff tendinitis.”

    Formula Joe said he won’t be out long…

  8. Wow
    Headley is playing like the guy they paid for

    Espada almost fucked Gardner up
    Holding him hat MFer is dangerous

    Nibbles has two runs to work with
    Shut them out for 7, lay a $23m outing on us


    April 19, 2017 at 7:25 pm

    • Francesa was goofing on Headley today
      That’s the best thing that could happen to a player

      This Covey kid is a fish even Bird can hit him 😂


      April 19, 2017 at 7:41 pm

  9. I used to think Beningo was the dumbest MFer on Earth, but Francesa has him beat


    April 19, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    • Tanaka gets a gift tonight, if he fucks this up its not gonna sit well


      April 19, 2017 at 7:47 pm


    David Price rehab hits a snag

    Tanaka has his C- stuff tonight


    April 19, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    • Mookie Betts just struck out


      April 19, 2017 at 8:11 pm

  11. Tanaka should buy Torreyes dinner for a month
    He saved his bacon twice so far


    April 19, 2017 at 8:49 pm

  12. That HR Judge hit had a Russian automatic docking system on it
