Break Up The Yanks

with 10 comments

Who  are these guys, and where are my Yankees, the ones who  can’t win  2 games in a row, or haven’t won any of the last  10 series?

As for the Aaron Judge photo with the Babe getting in the way of a good story, that ain’t happening,  he finally hit one to  the Moon, Alice…!

“That is absolutely Clobbered, Good God where is that  gonna land”

 That might be the best  HR call of the season for me, despite serving YES kool Aid all night long, Rucco is a nice break  from  the Kay, Leiter, O’Neill Bromance we’ve had to  endure over the last home stand and through Boston….

Judge hit a three-run Bomb that almost went out of Safeco Field in the fifth inning of Friday night’s game against the Mariners which the Yanks won 5-1

It was his first HR since July 7 — and 31st overall. It landed at the back of the second deck in left field.

So whoever she is, get her the old Kate Hudson seat…!

Judge appears to have broken Statcast, which did not have an immediate measurement of the blast, but after an original estimate of 415 feet, a New estimate from the Mariners on PlayBoy Judge’s homer: 440 feet #Yankees

Roy Hobbs broke out of his slump with a shot nobody could measure. Aaron Judge, same.

The Stuff You Gotta Watch

Mike Mazzeo Daily News

Chase Headley can’t find the bag after diving and having the ball deflect off his glove. M’s lead 1-0 #Yankees

Matt Holliday, 3 for his previous 32, singles up the middle. Aaron Judge 4 for his last 30 following K #Yankees

Tremendous diving catch by Clint Frazier #Yankees

Clint Frazier roped an RBI double. The #Yankees do owe Jacoby Ellsbury $130,000 or so per game for the next four years!

Starlin Castro with a diving play to his left to throw out Ex-Bomber Ben Gamel #Yankees

Sabathia Good Enough

The game got off to  a shaky start with Headley blowing a defensive play  at first base, this one cost Sabathia a run..

With 2 outs Sabathia walked Cano, at  that point he had thrown 13 pitches, and after a 2 pitch AB, Cruz singled.. CC should have been out of the inning at  17 pitches but Headley couldn’t find the bag after Castro grabbed Seager’s grounder and the M’s took  a 1-0 lead

Five pitches later after another single, Sabathia finally stopped the bleeding in a 22 pitch inning and a 1-0 deficit.

There is nothing to like about Headley playing third base, and there is even less to like about him trying to play  at the opposite corner, but reality sets in, NY owes him every bit of $20M over the next  yr and a half, don’t believe a word Cashman  said about he’s expecting Bird back this season

CC also  elevated his pitch  count in the 2nd inning needing 27 to get out of a long 4 batter frame.. Only a bad base running play by former Bomber prospect Cave Man Gamel saved CC possibly coughing up  another run..

Despite a walk and a HBP CC got out of the 3rd inning unscathed and on only 14 pitches.. A good shutdown frame after the Yanks took the lead in the top  of the third on doubles by Headley the WoodPecker and a sac fly by Judge

CC mowed down the next  6 in a row on 11 and 15 pitches consecutively  to  cruise through the 4th  and 5th inning, where he was now nursing a 5-1 lead after Judge’s 3 run moon shot in the top of the 5th ..

In the 6th inning CC couldn’t put Seager away, he finally lost  him on a 9 pitch base on balls, and that  was the end of his night…

5 innings, 1 run, none earned, 3 BB’s, 5 K’s 98-62 pitches, the walks and the error  hurt him re: length of outing, and he found his secondary stuff a bit too late in the game

NGBP Closes it out

With his newly revamped  No Gidrools Bull Pen raring to  go,  Joey Claps tap danced to  the bump and called on Tommy Gun Kahnle, who  put out the fire on 10  pitches, with 1 punch-out..

Robertson looked much  better then both Betances and Chapman’s recent adventures had a 1-2-3 7th, punching out the side.. We’ll  see if this continues… Poor bastard warmed up  for 3 innings last night, so he finally got into  some action…

Betances coughed up  a double to Cano  and a 2 out single but punched out 2  big hitters Cruz and Seager and left the 8th status quo at 5-1

Adam the Sheriff Warren  gave up  a lead off single to Cave Man Gamel but he induced a 6-4-3 DP, and stuffed Segura into waste basket with   a 6-3 game ending  putout….

Hit and Run

Sending the WoodPecker back when Hicks gets here could start  a riot.. The kid showcases to be  a multi tool ball player, and there is no deer in the head lights look in his eyes

He laid out to make a high-light reel  catch in the 2nd inning saving a truck load of trouble, then smoked an RBI double and scored the Yanks 2nd run in the 3rd

Headley doubled to deep center.
C. Frazier doubled to deep right center, Headley scored.
Gardner flied out to center, C. Frazier to third.
Sánchez walked.
Judge hit sacrifice fly to center, C. Frazier scored.
Holliday popped out to first.

Gardner and Sanchez poked 1 out singles in the 5th  and Judge closed the case with his 3 run Ballantine Blast

C. Frazier popped out to shortstop.
Gardner singled to right.
Sánchez singled to left, Gardner to third.
Judge homered to left (437 feet), Gardner and Sánchez scored.
Holliday grounded out to pitcher.
Castro flied out to left.

Everybody but the Toddfather had a hit, he got his hit yesterday… Gregorius had 3 hits, Headley 2, Judge and the WoodPecker had the loudest blasts

2B: Headley (21, Moore); C. Frazier (4, Moore)
HR: Judge (31, 5th inning off Moore 2 on, 1 Out)
RBI: C. Frazier (9), Judge 4 (72)
SF: Judge
GIDP: Castro, T. Frazier
Yankees RISP: 2-5 (Headley 0-1, T. Frazier 0-1, C. Frazier 1-1, Judge 1-1, Gardner 0-1)
Team LOB: 6

DP: 1 (Gregorius-Castro-Headley).
PB: Sánchez.

  1. Favorite part of the night was the Win, but in 2nd place was CC getting really pissed off when Joey Claps came to get him, then mouthing this is bull shit…

    Of course he downplayed it as he never wants to come out of a game, but Joey Claps dissed him not letting him go 6…..Why you wanna piss off your Clubhouse leader, go talk to to him before yanking him, tell him we need you for the long haul, then yank him lol….

    This is why Teflon Joe blew out the pen… But man having a NGBP is to die for, hopefully they stay healthy

  2. There will be armed fans stormung Rivera Ave if the redheaded stepchild is sent diwn instead of Doughboy being kneecapped !!!

  3. I am guessing that many of the players do not care for Joey Claps. He was the kid with the plastic insert in his front shirt pocket, holding seven pens of different colors and 3 Number 2 lead pencils.
    Anddonnie Bis correct. Frazier getting sent down would be criminal. Why not hold off on Hicksie’s return until September 1? Or better yet, get rid of the Doughby by August 1

    • hey noogsie and Donny…. the old pocket protectors hahahahaha.. His boss probably had one too, only with his initials on it

      Yeah we see a riot coming if this goes the way Cashman said it would… Let’s hope the WoodPecker is still pecking I wanna see them make the move, thy’ll burn the house down


      July 22, 2017 at 10:25 am

  4. The WoodPecker is writers hall of fame work BTW…..That needs a licensing deal… Donny get TBaker on it…

  5. And in a parallel universe—Blowtorch Clippard christened his White Sox uniform last night when he entered a tie game and promptly walked off the field a few batters later after fucking up.
    Lol on the plastic shirt protectors–they all had them, but Hal’s had the initials in 18k gold trim.
