Yanks Bomb Canada

with 24 comments

This is probably  the first  time, it might not be the last, but it was strange to  see the Yanks pick up 11 runs on 17 hits, and everybody in the line-up  but Aaron Judge danced at  the party…

Despite a hitless night and and an almost strike out free game for Judge, he did work  a walk in the 5th inning and was part of a 3 run explosion, so he at least was dancing in his seat..

It took  some doing but the Bombers beat up on a make shift Toronto pitching staff for an 11-5 win…

Boston  will head into Thursday’s  off day still  4 games up  on the Yanks after they walloped Tampa  8-2 after Odorizzi left with an injury… What you don’t like about Boston’s 8 game winning streak, they’re starting to  get really  lucky, and luck is a big part of winning… The best  the Yanks can  do is sweep  them in New York and they’ll  still be a game up on the Bombers..

Actually with Sale going against a TBA on Sunday, sweeping might be a pipe dream ..That said, with the news Sabathia’s knee exam came back clean, maybe KneeBone pitches Sunday  and not a combination of Mitchell and or Montgomery...

The Yanks might be guarding the intel  so Boston can’t game plan on their off day  today? CC has a 14 inning scoreless streak vs Boston  this season, and tossing him if he’s indeed not injured which  seems almost impossible after the pain he said he was in a few days ago, might keep  the Boston bats silent..?

Tanak’d Out

For the 2nd night in row the Yanks got a terrible effort from their starting pitching… Tanaka pitching on 6 days rest (so no rest excuse) had that look on his face, and we’ve seen it before, like somebody brought him a bucket of Fish and Chips instead of the sushi ordered…

Tanaka and the SanBino  needed an interpreter, and that  was just  to get the pitch  sequence figured out, so  he had no  rhythm… I don’t think  this was on the pitcher catcher relationship, Tanaka just punked out on  his start, and when a dude is making $23M per year  that’s annoying to  watch..

Tanaka only gave  up  2 hits during his brief 4 inning plus stint, but he walked 5 batters nibbling around the strike zone… His biggest  problem was not getting Toronto hitters  to chase his pitches, there weren’t many of them that looked like strikes but disappeared at the last second..

He also thought some calls on the black  went North  of the border, so his frustration could have been a combination of no depth on his split finger, and the home plate umps eyesight?

The Bail Out

The Bomber offense gave him a 2-0 lead in the 2nd inning, a 3-1 lead in the 3rd, a 6-2 lead  in the 5th…

Regardless he only managed to  eat  4 innings, a loud HR and a 4 pitch  walk ended  his night in the 5th inning.. He left with a 6-3 lead, a man on base, and no outs..

 Mow Too Green

Chad Mow Green came in to  restore order in the 5th relieving Tanaka… Green’s signature high  spin fast ball punched out the side, and it wasn’t close.. Impressive considering it was  Smoak, Pearce, and Pillar who have all been collective pains in the Bombers ass this year..

It looked like Psycho Joey Buttons was gonna go on auto pilot after Green mowed down 3-4-5 in the order.. Those plans went out the window when Mow Green morphed back into Too Green in the 6th.. A lead off single, and a 1 out RBI double ended his night with the score now 6-4..

Tommy Co Kahnle came in to  rescue Green but a wild pitch, a walk, and a 2 out single tightened the noose around the Bombers neck and by the time Kahnle punched out Smoak  on a few nasty splitters  to  end the uprising it was a 6-5 nail  biter and the momentum was in the Toronto  dugout..

D-Rob and Leone sailed smooth  waters in the 7th and both offenses went down 1-2-3, it was the calm before the storm

It’s Frazier By a Knock Out

Todd Frazier finally  had his NYY coming out party, the Toddfather was a triple shy of a cycle.. He saw 16 pitches on the night, he went 3 for 4, (Hr, double, single) scored 4 times and drove in 3 runs..

He went back to  back with the SanBino in the 2nd inning to  give Tanaka a 2-0 lead.. Gregorius gave the Bombers  a 3-1 lead in the 3rd…The biggest  hit of the game came in the 5th with 2 outs  and men on 2nd and third….After Sanchez struck out,  Frazier smoked a 2 run double to  give the Yanks a 5-2 lead…

The DoughBoy followed with an RBI double and the Yanks once again had the momentum up 6-2

 With the Yanks clinging to  a narrow 6-5 lead, Frazier got the 8th started stroking a lead off single ..

Manager John Wayne Gibbons lost 15 pounds just walking to  pound 6 times, the poor Toronto  skipper had to use   a bunch of underbelly pitchers in this game, and he was bum rushing these guys at a brisk pace

Ellsbury was punched out by a situational lefty, but Cooper and Torreyes took advantage of a raw Rook making his first  ever appearance for the varsity… Gibby was obviously out of bullets and pretty much used a water pistol in a gun fight inserting 27 yr old AAAA rookie Taylor Cole into a Wild Card battle..

Coop  doubled and Torreyes quickly whacked a 2 run single to give the Yanks an 8-5 cushion..

Betances despite hitting a batter in the 8th, induced a DP and left the inning unscathed..

The Bombers tee’d off on Cole in the 9th, 3 singles, a HBP, and a ground out plated 3 runs, it gave the Yanks an 11-5 lead…

The big blow a 2 run single came off the bat of Cooper who also had a NYY career night going 4 for 5 with a double, 3 singles, 2 runs scored and 1 RBI…

Taylor Cole in his varsity maiden voyage not so  good, but the Bomer offense gave him an  assist

1 inning, 6 hits, 4 runs, 1 BB, 1 K

Thanks TC

Adam  the Sheriff Warren closed it out,  Psycho Joey Claps used 5 relievers so his hands no doubt had blisters by the time he hit his post game pressure… Chappy and Shreve had the night off

Hit and Run

5 for 13 with RISP off a lot of bad pitching, sometimes you eat  the bear,  sometimes the bear  eats you… Try the BBQ sauce, the DonB carts it up here from Arkansas

RBI: Sánchez (53), T. Frazier 3 (52), Gregorius (55), Ellsbury 2 (23), Torreyes 2 (30), Cooper 2 (5)
2-out RBI: Gregorius, T. Frazier 2, Ellsbury
Yankees RISP: 5-13 (Sánchez 0-1, Headley 1-2, Cooper 1-2, T. Frazier 1-1, Torreyes 1-1, Gregorius 0-1, Ellsbury 1-2, Judge 0-2, Gardner 0-1)

  1. big night for the Toddfather, man if this guy wakes up we have something…. then again if Rip Van winkle would have woken up Washington Irving would have lost a lot of mailbox money….

    Tanaka regressed on his opt out journey, and man it was starting to look so promising….. Be nice to free up his money and sell high on Gardner in the off season….. $36M in salary flex if that happens….

  2. Gibbons walking to the mound looked like #1 Billy – totally hung over
    actually so did Baron Rothschild 😣😣😣😣

    • Yes Clue an Clueless

      The WoodPecker was put in a 10 day DL cage… Oblique? or .600 OPS in his last 40 AB’s, or maybe Hicks-a-tosius


      August 10, 2017 at 12:28 pm

  3. Moose and Moore should get that afternoon Francesa gig
    Beningo is a moron, Roberts is a nerd, these are the only 2 guys not trying too hard
    Two NYY fans who don’t pour NYY kool aid and don’t turn every conversation into a Met or Jet filibuster

    • Cashman had to know Jay Bruce was going to be a Huge overpay
      offering a top 30 draft pick and $1 million was not going to get it done maybe Andujar are Sheffield and Tate would’ve got it done lol
      Eddie Coleman made a lot of sense Wilpon doesn’t want to see Bruce Jack taters into the second deck in Yankee stadium this week

      Hicksie is back Frazier DL’d with
      Hickititis C
      His OPS is .401 in August
      A 401 is good if you work for a large company not so good if it’s you OPS this month

  4. Mikey’s Horse ran at Saratoga yesterday as reported, along with the video of the race by Back Afta This ( formerly Funhouse) Mikey picks horses similar to the way he pick other things in sports.

    • didn’t hear it,. nerd bro he’s a nerd…


      August 10, 2017 at 8:43 pm

  6. Sonny Gray is an American Tanaka a nibbler who if he’s behind in the count his stuff doesn’t play, like Tanaka, guys only chase when they’re ahead in the count..

    I can’t believe they traded Mateo for this #3 at best in the rotation….Maybe he’ll get better, he can’t get worse lol



    August 10, 2017 at 8:45 pm

  7. at least Cooper is hitting… Refsynder looks like Robbie Alomar lol… Pathetic job by the top of the order.. I was hoping for a sweep, they might not win a series vs the last place Jays……..


    August 10, 2017 at 8:53 pm

  8. They take pitches they should hammer and swing at pitches no one can hit.


    August 10, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    • yup, that’s called choking…. lol…. Cashman rushed this team, his kid stars have no track record playing this deep into a season… Which is fine, it’s what this yr was supposed to be, and they did replace Pineda with Sonny, they have a good pen for 2018 unless they trade guys to cut payroll

      Not sure where Bruce would have played, DH I guess , but for $4M Jay Bruce would have maybe helped…. the accountants wanted to fake a playoff run but they didn’t want it to cost them too much more money

      Bruce’s lux tax money would have cost them $6M….

      Good job Sonny another solid 6 innings…Anybody paying starting pitches in excess of $30M or even $20M need their head’s examined……..Gotta grow your own


      August 10, 2017 at 9:28 pm

  9. Six Inning Sonny does have good stuff, unfortunately the offense sucks, and he needs to cut down on the 20 pitch innings..

    Sonny is better then Pineda so it’s an upgrade….Too bad it cost Mateo Kap and Fowler….


    August 10, 2017 at 9:20 pm

  10. Barrioots just asked why the Yankees get paid if they dont show up ready to work.
    She doesn’t and she has a point, Union not withstanding LOL


    August 10, 2017 at 9:51 pm

    • they have a good players union ….lol….. Trap game, looking ahead to Boston, forgot to unpack the bats….Girardi gets paid $3M a yr to say that’s baseball, you’re not always going to be good…


      August 10, 2017 at 10:29 pm

  11. 3 pitch whiff for a great pinch hitter, right ?
    Desperation is obvious


    August 10, 2017 at 10:02 pm

  12. Well that sucked.
    Clean House !
    Drain this swamp.
    Coaching Staff must be sacrificed.


    August 10, 2017 at 10:06 pm

  13. good game we almost got them… funny how good Ref looks on defense….When is Hal gonna wake up,

    Sonny 12 inning he has had Zero runs scored, so it’s not his fault….He got here the wrong half of the season….Girardi should just make a tape loop and play it at the pressers…. It’s baseball, and sometimes you run into good pitchers how many times has Girardi said that

    Wonder what number he’ll wear in Chicago next yr? wonder if he brings Cockrell and Thames, and Rothschild and Espada with him…..?

    The Yanks have gone from division leaders to unwatchable in the blink of an eye. Hard to believe.

    Jacoby Ellsbury receives a paycheck every two weeks for approximately $1,750,000.


    August 10, 2017 at 10:33 pm

  16. Great quote about Yanks going from division leaders to unwatchable. My wife asked me why I watch if I can’t stand whats going on,I said the Mets and Rangers are worse.Sherman showed that Judge’s numbers since the All star break are almost identical to last years numbers.At least he gets walked,along with getting screwed by the umps with bad calls,the rest of the team is pathetic.Refsnyder looks like a gold glove 2nd baseman now,with the Yanks he sucked.Scumbag Estrada had not won in 12 straight starts,shuts out the Yanks!! Blowjays pitchers-JA Crapp,Estrada-can only beat the Yanks. Tired of hearing about rivalry week,how about scoring some runs!!!


    August 11, 2017 at 12:16 am

    • hey Big D, Yeah I saw the Sherman article just a little while ago, nothing like piling on lol…Yeah the young man has lost his way, he’s not seeing the ball the same way in the 2nd half….I’m sure Cockrell and Thames are trying to help….

      It’s not basketball, if oberon goes down the team goes down, so they need one or 3 of the other 8 to pick it up

      Sanchez is in on every play, he has his hands full baby sitting the pitching, whatever they get from him on offense is gravy…DD’s been good, Headley is Headley Toe is Toe, need Hicks and Gardner to kick it up, Ellsbury is practically useless, and hope that Cooper stays hot over the weekend

      Unfortunately with Holliday MIA…The way they’re built is Judge and Sanchez, counting on two players in their first August is on the team building crew….

      Nothing a Series win can’t fix…..At least temporarily…..Red Sox fans were going through this just before the break

      Hopefully they game planned to stop Nunez and Devers, those two have given them the spark, the way Judge gave the Yanks a jolt…. We’re seeing what happens when you cut the head off the snake, it still squirms but can’t do much damage….


      August 11, 2017 at 5:47 am

  17. I saw this kid De Paula pitch 2 weeks ago, he’s one of the prospects they got for Gamel… Kid gets the ball, gets the sign and throws, I bet his pace is Sale like around 11 to 13 seconds Scroll down 3 players

    the first player Smith is the kid the Mets got for Duda
