Baseball and Beyond

It’s well  documented by Brett Gardner, the Bombers pitchers like it when  their offense jumps to  an early lead, it relaxes them…

So  when Gardner reached third base with no outs in the 1st inning on a error, and 3 of the Yanks best hitters were coming up  you felt, relaxed?

Until  you didn’t, Sanchez grounded to 3rd base, it was an out that didn’t move the needle as Gardzilla stayed glued to  the pillow..

Judge got ahead in the count 2-0, but Liriano threw a 91 MPH fast ball, in a fast ball  count by him for strike one, which  set up  the slider, then change up, fishing trip Judge took for the punch-out..

Holliday could have picked both Rooks up in a Father Know’s Best moment,  but he unleashed a smart bomb that missed it’s target for an innocuous  F/7 and the rally died on the vine

Michael Pineda got most of the blame for the Bombers 7-5 loss, but as mediocre as PineTop  was, 5 innings, 10 hits, 5 runs, 3 BB’s,  1K, 2 HR’s, 87 pitches, it was Kyle Holder coughing up  Donaldson’s 2nd HR of the game, in the 6th , and Adam the Sheriff Warren’s inability to pick up Hurricane Carter’s error in the 7th that led to  the Jays  final 2  debilitating runs

Holder’s  HR pitch, a slider to Donaldson had some tilt to it, but the All Star third baseman went down and got it to make it a 6-4 game..The clutch Dinger  avoided a shut down inning after the Yanks closed the gap  to  5-4..

The Bombers countered to make it 6-5 in the 7th on a 2 out walk to Judge, and a RBI double by Holliday.. The Donaldson HR was no longer insurance it was the difference maker

The Carter error starting  the 7th began to ache but not until Tulowitzki smashed a loud double, and the Jays had 2nd and 3rd with no outs.. Warren held the damage to  1 run on a sac fly, a sac bunt that handed him a free out, and a no hit catcher striking out…

Up 7-5  in the 8th the Jays pen, Smith  and Osuna pitched to  the back of their baseball card, so the unearned run on Warren’s watch in the 7th empowered Osuna to  challenge Gardner, Sanchez, and especially  Judge who he punched out with heat to end it…

Larry the Stable Guy might as well go  to  the mattresses, tell  the wife you’ll see her soon, Tanaka and now Pineda look ragged, LSG has a lot of work  to do

Hit and Run

Judge, Castro, Holliday, all made it exciting in an effort to out hit  the bad Pineda start and the leaky bull pen.. Unfortunately 0-9 with RISP didn’t help the solution, it was more of the problem

2B: Hicks (10, Liriano); Carter (3, Liriano); Holliday (8, Tepera)
HR: Judge (18, 6th inning off Liriano 1 on, 0 Out); Castro (8, 6th inning off Barnes 1 on, 0 Out)
RBI: Judge 2 (40), Castro 2 (30), Holliday (34)
2-out RBI: Holliday
GIDP: Holliday
Yankees RISP: 0-9 (Sánchez 0-2, Holliday 0-2, Headley 0-1, Gregorius 0-1, Carter 0-1, Castro 0-1, Judge 0-1)
Team LOB: 7
E: Sánchez (4, throw); Carter (1, catch)
DP: 1 (Headley-Castro-Carter).

Judge going across traffic (see YES video) pretty amazing

The YES Men

the Whole 9

10  and 12 in the last 22 games is more like the Bomber squad the media had envisioned, last night’s  1 step  forward 1 step back loss has the Yanks 2.5 games over the O’s who now have won 3 of their last 4 against the Yanks and Boston after losing 7 straight..

  1. it was a fun game except the bad guys won.. They just couldn’t all zig and zag together.. Once Osuna got in the game and Sanchez and Judge had nobody on base the water reached the ceiling and there was no way out…

  2. Yanks wasted a lot of early opportunities-not scoring with GARDY leading off on 3rd,having the bases loaded on walks and not scoring-and it cost them. I think all of us are surprised and happy how well they have played,no one expected them to be in first place in June. Its still disappointing to lose a game like this.
    Pinheada is much better at home then on the road,but he really is still an enigma,never know what you will get. The girdrool patrol did their thing,adding fuel to the fire. Has anyone seen Betances? He has not pitched in a week,last seen on a milk carton. Even the announcers have had enough of Carter,openly questioning why Refsnyder who had 2 hits is not playing. Its because the Yankee brass hate him,period.
    DonB is on the warpath about Headley, I am on the warpath about resting Sanchez. How much fucking rest does a 25 year old need? This team needs his bat in the lineup,they have to find a way to keep him playing every day. He has taken grounders at 1b,like Hicks, its stupid and wasteful to rest him because its a day game,they are off Monday!!! Gleyber Torres is playing 3b in the minors,help could be here soon.

  4. hey fellas great win, great takes !! Big D, 1st base is where they should insert Sanchez, best you can get out of Holiday at 1st base is once a week so he can DH..Might be too late this season but ST Sanchez gets a 1st base mitt

    The Ref thing made no sense, unless they were giving Carter until Bird gets back to snap out of it..Girardi also had to be thinking defense on the rug, imagine Carter in for defensive purposes.

    If Bird pushes his way into the line-up and Austin is destroying AAA pitching, my guess Carter, he gone…

    Donny B, lol All those HR’s and Joey Bats in the house moved Headski down on the Tessio Ride dispatch,

    Here’s what I think

    Gleyber Torres + .194 .356 .222 .578 at AAA (7 for 36) +$26M owed to Headley for 2017/18= Headley plays everyday…..
