Bridge Over Troubled Water

with 15 comments

To  the 2017 NY Yankees, thank you for the  first  61 games of this season (38-23), too bad the schedule was 101 games longer or we’d be listening to  the worst music ever created while one by one the players and coaches would be walking to  the podium, waving to  the Canyon of Heroes crowd while   collecting their We Are The Champions pins…

Yes June 12th  seems like a lifetime ago, smirking and Bronx cheering at  the Cubs, the Royals, and the Red Sox who had to tank seasons away, in the Cubs and Royals case it took  6 years, before they  could be crowned Kings, feels like a long lost dream..

Enter July 20th and not only have we been taking cold showers for the last 32 games, (10-22) the dream  season is slowly turning into  a nightmare as the Bombers lost their 10th straight series, (0-8-2). This 6-1 loss to  the Twins who  the Bombers used to  own  was the quit on  your stool variety..

After the GumBino completely imploded in the 2nd inning coughing up 2 singles, a double, a walk,  and a 3 Run Bomb to Miguel  Sano Don’t You Know to give the Twins and their brilliant rookie Jose Berrios a 6-0 lead, the Yankees tents folded and the get away  day swings took over for Teflon Joe’s traveling Blues Show

Through 6 innings, Twins right-hander Jose Berrios faced just three Yankee hitters with runners in scoring position and none of them hurt the 22-year-old right-hander.

Both  teams picked up 7 hits, Berrios was great, the Yanks started to  touch him in the 7th when the WoodPecker singled, the Romine Empire was HBP, and Gardzilla singled the WoodPecker home… The Todd-Father just in from Chicago  whiffed pinch hitting for Torreyes

The Bombers had men on 2nd a third but the DoughBoy went window shopping on a pitch  down the middle to  end any delusions of grandeur… Hey when  you own a $153M contract why not do  some window shopping, maybe one of these days he’ll  actually buy a  hit

Red Frazier, Castro  and Gardner had 2 hits apiece, Gregorius had one knock, that was it, seven singles on the afternoon

The rest of the crew went 0-16…Down 6-1 Teflon Joe sent up  Headley, and  Judge to  pinch hit… Head went down on an F/8, Judge struck out, the Todd-Farher was HBP on his hand no less, and Gardner ended the water boarding rolling over a ground ball  to  2nd base…

The game was lost in the 2nd inning after the 6 run barrage off Montgomery who hadn’t pitched 6 complete innings all month

In 4 starts he’s hurled 19.2 innings so he’s averaging a tick under 5 innings per start, he’s not even a 5 and fly guy.. He’s given up  25 hits in 19.2 innings and has a 6.41 ERA in July… The GumBino  was running through walls up until  this month, now he seems to have run run into one..

Aaron Judge (NYY) went 0-for-1 on Wednesday, striking out as a pinch-hitter in the 9th inning in Minnesota. He’s 3-for-26 with no extra-base hits since the All-Star break, and his 34-AB homerless streak is the 2nd-longest of his career (had a streak of 41 last year).

Green was really good once again too bad they had to waste him in a 6-1 game, but maybe we’ll  see him tonight in his first  back to back game…

Tommy Gun Kahnle also  tossed an inning both weapons punched out 2 batters… If the offense can remember how to hit, the Bull Pen looks gidrool proof, finally..

Cashman may have called for the Calvary too late though, unless Sanchez, Judge, Holliday, Castro, Gregorius, Gardner and Ellsbury pick it up  with the lumber, and Montgomery, Cessa and Tanaka start to pitch better, we’re back to being in a Bridge year

Now that might be fine for Mike Francesa who  has been praying the Yanks crash so his Yanks will miss the playoffs prediction comes to  fruition..


For the rest of us it’s troubling to  watch what  was such a promising season get washed out to  sea like a sand castle that  was built to  close to the tide line..

  1. I screamed to the heavens NOT to participate in that shyster hr derby, but Noooo, does anyone listen to The Don ???


    July 20, 2017 at 9:49 am

    • Lol No Bah D listens


      Did they think you became the Don for nothing


      July 20, 2017 at 10:19 am

  2. I listen to my Don.
    I’m a button man.
    I’m told to go push a button on a guy, I push a button.
    These young guys have no respect

    • Bondsie I found a photo of Judge with a Babe when I get back From logging I’ll dig it up
      I think I uncovered the Judge problem


      July 20, 2017 at 12:00 pm

  3. Bonds I found it on my phone… We’ll wait for your expert bird dogging abilities before we Judge if he’s zapped, and maybe it wasn’t the Derby but the 2 days that followed….

    • Now you have to be toasted to wear a Red Sox T shirt…

      I thought his problem was physical not between the ears, but apparently it’s neither, it might be between his legs instead….


      July 20, 2017 at 12:11 pm

    • Wow! That sure doesn’t look good!
      Wonder if it’s hanging in the Sux clubhouse??

      Upon reviewing the photo with my crack staff, we’ve come to a conclusion. Our findings show the babe, while a little heavy in the thighs, & not much of a rack, is a cutie patootie.

      As to the photo of Judge wearing a Sux T-Shirt, thru exhaustive research with my team, we’ve concluded that the pic was photoshopped.
      We’ll reveal the conclusive evidence tonight, at a major news conference.
      Without conclusively saying at this point, evidence points to Dave “The Trader” Dombrowski.
      The trail appears to start after Dombrowski, thinking he fleeced the White Sox, only to be slammed with the news that the Evil Empire swooped in at the last minute, & foiled his attempt.

    • What the fuck does the OJ parole hearing have to do with this sports radio show
      fucking Mikey is milking it again

      you got to be kidding me

      who gives a fuck if he stays to jail or not

      I’m surprised Obama didn’t free us sorry ass he let a bunch of other assholes off


      July 20, 2017 at 1:09 pm

  5. lol
    Good report Bonds your cracked staff is secoond to none

    So what you’re saying she wouldn’t qualify for a free ride on the private jet
    I didn’t think so

    I’m not concerned with the shirt
    men will do just about anything in the Heat of battle

    I’m just wondering if his stash of qualudes has run out yet


    July 20, 2017 at 6:10 pm

  6. O. J. was too white for Obama,, besides
    Michelle has no truck with a woman killer,,
    I’ll be asleep before the 3rd inning.
    I was up at 4am with a sick dog.zzzzzz


    July 20, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    • Bummer hope the pup is feeling better

      King Felix looks vintage


      July 20, 2017 at 10:54 pm

  7. Unless Cashman finds a pitcher that can hit, I’d hold off on that trade for a stud pitcher, is this offense worth emptying the farm system?

    The ToddFather’s NYY career is 2 K’s
    Kind of a small sample size lol

    And Judge is starting to worry me, he was cause for concern a week ago
    Now it looks chronic

    Nice call putting a fake first baseman on first Cashman and Girardi are choking this thing away


    July 20, 2017 at 10:52 pm

  8. Big win the toddfather judge get hits
    Sev a gem
