Bird Watchers

Say A Prayer For

Greg Bird who on April 2nd, 2017 was afflicted  with MFJ disease (Mike Francesa jinx)

We will through prayer continue in our attempts to cure this deadly infirmity that has taken the prime earning years away  from many an athlete

How did the hope and future of the NY Yankees contact this deadly indisposition

The Sports Pope, who  vehemently denounces Spring Training and it’s egregious stats, casted his morality aside and fervently anointed  poor Greg Bird as

“Central Casting, a picture perfect Yankee, good looking, looks good in the pinstripes, big left handed slugga for da short porch, a can’t miss STAR”

after Bird tore up Spring Training hitting

23 for 51 with  8 HR’s, 7 doubles, and 1 triple,

.451 .556 1.098 1.654

Yesterday Francesa started to  wonder if Bird will need a trip  back to  the nest at SWB? That  was a sign  the cloud could be lifting, so we’re feverishly researching to  see if a Francesa Reverse Curse or better known  as wFRC+ even exists, and what player  actually survived ?

So  abandon

New Testament vs Old Testament
Catholicism vs Christianity
Catholic vs Protestant
Mormonism vs Christianity
Christianity vs Islam
Sunni vs Shia
Christianity vs Protestantism
Islam vs Shia

And join together in a World Prayer for Greg Bird to  come back, come back to us Greg from this April disaster

  2. Benintendi should just be awarded first base to speed the game up, he gets a single every time up..

    Bird 0-6 3 K’s vs Porcello

  3. in total agreement Barnes is an asshole… No Barnes this series, Pedroia might still be out

    no reason the Yanks can’t steal one from Porcello

    Forget Sale vs Tanaka that’s a mismatch

    Pomeranz against this RHB team Yanks have a shot….

  4. Nice going in the underdog let’s don’t wake them up.. they’re a singles / doubles machine especially in that place but they just started to smack Taters vs the O’s, let’s keep them off the HR board

    “I think when you have a team that a lot of people don’t believe that they are capable to be in [the playoff race], this passes a message to players,” Girardi’s bench coach, Tony Pena, said Sunday. “The players start to show everybody that they are wrong.”

  5. AAA icon Chance Adams is red hot except he’s walking too many guys that was his problem in ST pitching to varsity hitters.. he’s not on the 40 man so he’ll have to cut down on the BB’s if he has a shot

    RHP Chance Adams: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 5/4 GB/FB — 53 of 95 pitches were strikes (56%) … down to a 0.82 ERA on the season … ten walks in 22 innings so far, which isn’t great … he didn’t walk his tenth batter until his 30th inning last year

  6. the good stuff heading into Boston

    Run Differential: +30 (1st in MLB)
    Team wRC+: 123 (1st in MLB)
    Team ERA: 3.17 (2nd in MLB)
    Runs Scored Per Game: 5.11 (t-3rd in MLB)
    Runs Allowed Per Game: 3.44 (t-1st in MLB)

  7. Mikey 2 Chins line-up in 3 weeks… I’d say swap out Hicks for Gardner and lets go.. then again Girardi putting 3 RHB’s in a row never happen

    CF Jacoby Ellsbury
    3B Chase Headley
    C Gary Sanchez
    DH Matt Holliday
    2B Starlin Castro
    SS Didi Gregorius
    RF Aaron Judge
    1B Greg Bird
    LF Brett Gardner

  8. of course head hunter Barnes his appealed the decision so he’ll be in the pen for the NYY series…

    unfortunately it’s depth in a 3 game set, s opposed to them calling up a gidrool…..

  9. Pete Abraham‏Verified account @PeteAbe

    #RedSox place Sandoval on the DL and activate Rutledge off the DL.

    If Pedroia’s out they’ll need to use Hernandez and Rutledge is my guess.. Tonight might be our shot, the media is still pecking away at the Barnes Machado scab

    WFAN didn’t post the Pete Abe interview on Beningo’s show, it was great…. real inside stuff

  10. Smoltz exit velocity is BS, if you Strike Out a lot they don’t count that percentage so 97 is 54… lol

    exit velocity is just more content, it’s the media making it a big deal, we’d rather have RBI’s with RISP..

    Be nice to see Judge wreck a game tonight if they play

    Jeter and Jeb
