the man of steal!!!
ISH NAILED IT!
Time for some insurance, Mr. FY
"Lugo's been having some ups and downs lately."Mostly downs.
if he doesn't get his glove down, his time will be up
Mostly downs.Yeah. That's definitely the truth right there. I wonder how much Theo thinks about it these days.
make them pay
Are you gonna just watch them walk your bro, Man Ram? Let's not have any of this!
Ish with the 201!
Twins TV trivia. Last Red Sox to lead the AL in hits? Name and year.
We're actually doing very well with comments tonight. Nice and lively. And we're only in the 6th.
OK Manny, two strikes, do your thing...
I hear too often these days, "you usually don't see Manny do _______"
Twins anncrs:"You think he's setting him up?""Who, Ramirez or Rincon?"
Damn, not that thing. But we still have the lead.
Twins TV trivia. Last Red Sox to lead the AL in hits? Name and year.Is this supposed to be an easy question? From a Twins perspective, I'd think the most notable Red Sox hitter (batting champ hitter, etc.) would be Nomar. 1999 or so.What did they say about it?
"We're actually doing very well with comments tonight. Nice and lively."I'm glad cause I'm not threading every game now. When I first checked in I was chatting with myself.
Well Nomar had a shitload of hits the year he hit like .372 or whatever
I don't know if it was supposed to be easy. It was the Aflac q. It was Nomar. But I'm not sure it was 99. (Anyone?)Twins guys guessed Boggs.
I'm surprised and glad to see Lester still out there.
When Lugo goes after a ball up the middle, he yields instead of merges.
haha spoke too soon
Just checked, Nomar's batting title was 99.
His rookie year of 97 was the hit-leading year
"When Lugo goes after a ball up the middle, he yields instead of merges."Maybe he'll take the early exit.
its '97 with 207
Damn. I was close.
97, that's what I thought! I should have said it. Bah. Should trust myself more.
Nomar also won batting title in 2000. Could've had more hits that year than in '97 but he got intentionally walked 20 times
I show 209 hits in '97, not 207. Did the Twins channel say 207?
In 2000? I didn't remember that. But I did remember it was in his rookie year in 97. I walk around saying "That's what I thought, I should have said it" all the time.
When Lugo goes after a ball up the middle, he yields instead of merges.The fork in the road is actually in his back.
No idea what they said. I only saw Nomar, not year or # of hits.
"The fork in the road is actually in his back."Cold but true.
RED SOX RELAY FTW!
Out at the plate! Sweet!
Hahaha, shoulda stopped at 3rd, sucka!
To clarify: Nomar led AL in hits in '97. Led in batting average in '99 and 2000.

Remy, It's moot. Ball beat him, plate was blocked. It's an out.
Remy, It's moot. Ball beat him, plate was blocked. It's an out.Radio guys talked about how one angle showed safe, one showed out. One showed his foot was over the plate but not on it.O'Brien, to Castig: "What do you think?"Joe C: "Well, the umpire said he's out, so he's out."
Joe C: "Well, the umpire said he's out, so he's out."Amen.Do you know how many times I've tried to get that point across to my LL'ers?
Remy, It's moot. Ball beat him, plate was blocked. It's an out.This is one reason Remy can be an idiot. Even if the ball beats him and the plate is blocked, but he touches the plate before he's tagged, he's safe.Go sell a t-shirt.
hmmmderriere with the OTTIsn't that like a rap song song or something?
OKAJI TIME!Fielding bible thought Lowell was the best at fielding bunts last year.
So key by Youk there.
GDGD shows a coaching visit to mound to start the inning ???
But, this is where things get dicey. Jeemer's out there, but it's the 7th inning. With a one-run cushion. We'll see how this goes. This is where I wish MDC was pitching to his potential.
Popped Him Up. Keep hackin', Twins
GDGD shows a coaching visit to mound to start the inning???Francona went out after the warm-up pitches had been thrown.
3 Pitches - 2 OutsNice
sosock, yes, that's what I meant by "double commercial." They were just giving Oki extra warm-up time.
So key by Youk there.Good heads-up by Pedroia to get to first, as well.
You down with OPP? Ya you know me!
Jeemer and Bot over 3 innings?
KEY right there. Very few pitches thrown in the inning.
Good evening, all. How's the game been? I see we are ahead, but Lester gave up 5 runs. I have to go check the box score while we are at a break in the inning.
With only 6 pitches there, maybe!Idiot Twins.
Jeemer and Bot over 3 innings?At this rate, I think Jeemer and Bot can get it done.Bot's been pitching a lot lately, hasn't he?
We won't need Pap with the 9-run frame we're about to lay on 'em.
Jeemer's out there, but it's the 7th inning. 6 pitches - I think he's good for another :)So, did Aardsmama warm up, then Tito thought better, or did Jeemer go out to start, and Tito went out to confer?
I just got back from taking care of the pups. What did I miss? Score is the same I see.Hi Amy! I finally make it to a thread and you weren't here.
Evan Longoria hit a walk-off 2 run home run to break a scoreless tie with the Angels. James Shields threw a complete game ONE-hitter.
On the other side of the ledger, Jon Garland threw 8 innings, giving up just 4 hits.
Lugo: 24 Ks this year.
My goodness, I need a power nap to help me through this one.
sosock, everything was normal up until the inning was about to start. Then Tito made the change. He was just allowing Oki to be fully ready by having Aaaa throw his warmups. So, basically, the infielders got twice as much infield practice.
Hi Laura. Yes, I have missed you. We were out til now. Luckily (?) the game started late so I made it for the last three innings.Harvey was at the Yankee game yesterday. He was happy they won---for a change.
Cause it's late or cause it's boring? Or because you didn't get enough zeds last night?
This dude will go on my all-burly team.
this feels like an average-length game to me. (2008 average)
Every time I hear Evan Longoria I think they are talking about Eva Longoria. Strange almost name twin.Nice! Go, LBJ!
Is Mark Buehrle on that squad?
I'm glad they won if Harvey was there. I mean, they have to win sometime, so it might as well be the games Harvey goes to.I used to want the Sox to win whenever Allan saw them, because he didn't get to see them often.
Longoria, yes, we all do. I think Jere calls him Eva.
do we need some insurance? fuck yeah we do!
hahah...Zeds...Those are British, you know. Heh.I love when they talk about a car, like the BMW Zed 4, or the Nissan 350 Zed. etc etc.
Yes, I felt very noble hoping that the Yankees won for Harvey since it is likely his last time ever at the old Stadium. Of course, if the game was against the Sox or in September, I doubt I would be as noble.
reyes gives up two singles over 4 pitches.gradyhire shaking his head in the dugout!! heh heh
Setting the table for the big dogs.
It's not that long a game. It started at 8. It's 11:00 now (almost) and we're in the 8th. Normal these days, like Jere said.
Is Mark Buehrle on that squad?He might as well be. But he'd be the fifth starter because he's got to be the most physically fit player on the team. David Wells would be the #1 starter.
Must be because it's late, L
Zeds are Canadian, too. That's why I said them. :)
I sure would have liked those insurance runs.
Sure would be nice to get our old Papi back about now.But alas......
The new old Yankee Stadium, that is. The old Yankee Stadium hasn't existed since 1973.
I think of zeds as strictly Canadian. (Thanks, "You Can't Do That on Television" and other Canadian-made Nickelodeon shows.)
Would they really say catching some zeds? Have the British and Canadians always said zed instead of Z? If so, why do we say Z?
Ortiz has been coming around. He's hit in his last 8 (or 9?) games, with 3 HRs and a few doubles. That doesn't suck.
Zeds are Canadian, too. That's why I said them. :)Ahh. Gotcha. Surprised I didn't know that by now.
I said catching some zeds as a joke. But Canadians say zed. It's a dead giveaway of Americans in Canada, zee vs zed. Your other questions, I don't know.
Good morning everyone. I'm back just in time to see us close out the win.
The new old Yankee Stadium, that is. The old Yankee Stadium hasn't existed since 1973.Yes, though at least it stands where the old one stood, unlike the new new one.
Speaking of someone catching his Zeds...
zed is the metric Z
Not enough zeds.
You can also catch a Canadian out of a crowd if they ask for the 'washroom'.
I like this all burly team. Is it a polite way of saying the All Tubby Team? Don't forget Fritters (Fetters to most people, but Fritters to me and Allan) and of course El Guapo.
Oki gets him!
wikipedia:"In American English dialects, its name is zee /ziː/, deriving from a late 17th-century English dialectal form. "
You can also catch a Canadian out of a crowd if they ask for the 'washroom'.And the Canadian companies who label their restrooms as Washrooms.Irving Blue Canoe, for example.
I've got washroom down now. :)I think of it is catching an American out when they say bathroom or rest room.
Between innings blather - We got creamed last night. About 10 minutes after I shut down the puter we were watching the weather alerts that had taken over every station and they showed a tornado about 4-5 miles from us touching down.Passed within about 1/2 mile of us. Took off 2 roofs (rooves?) in my sister's neighborhood about 2 miles away.Totally destroyed 6 houses within about 4 miles the other way from us.Our power was out from 10pm last night till about 9:30 this AM.Scary Shit!
El GuapoHe's my set-up man. Bobby Jenks is the closer.
we go to the ninth!
It's mostly the "ou" pronunciation that gives away the Canadian background for me. I have had many Canadian students, and that's always the dead giveaway. Haven't heard any zeds or washrooms.
¡slooɟ noʎ uʍo ıɾɐʞo
"Yes, though at least it stands where the old one stood, unlike the new new one."Doesn't matter. Everyone is acting like the original Yankee Stadium is leaving, and we haven't seen it in 35 years. It annoys me no end.
15 pitches!I love how the Twinkies are helping us out here. Damn friendly of them.I wonder if Tito will let him come on back?
Sosock, I remember you worrying about the storm last night---but a TORNADO---wow, scary. Everyone ok?
I thought Juan Berenguer would be your closer.
Or how you pronounce aboot
Sosock... Amazing. I heard about those tornadoes on the news tonight. You must get some bad thunderstorms down there in the summer, but tornadoes must be somewhat rare, right?
The Canadian raising. The little "oo" that is always there. No matter how long someone lives in the US, it never goes away. Peter Jennings still had it - and Alex Trebec. It's not the "aboot" of cartoons, it's just a little "ou" in the "ou".But zed and washroom are big.
Though farther (barely) from the original spot, the new YS should resemble the old more than the renovated one did.
I have a Japanese mancrush on Okajima
I'm not sure how I'd fare in a tornado. Though, last night I went out looking for one that apparently was forming. Saw a couple of funnel clouds, actually. But jeez. At night it must be so scary.
Tornado! Wow, I had to scroll way back to catch that one. Hope you're all ok!
"El GuapoHe's my set-up man. Bobby Jenks is the closer."I know who your DH is. Tony Gwynn.
ITS ABOOT RESPECT! ITS ABOOT DIGNITEH!
I never was at the old pre-73Yankee Stadium, but Harvey was many times growing up. I think he sees the current one as a renovation, whereas this new one will lead to the destruction of that old one.
I get gallons of real sauerkraut from a local company here in New England. IT'S SOOOOOOOOO GOOD.
I saw Guapo pitch last year for the Nashua Pride. He closed out their victory in the Can Am League championship series against the North Shore Spirit.
I think "mancrush" is banned for homophobia here. Just have a crush. A nice old fashioned crush. What the hell. Oki deserves your love.
I know who your DH is. Tony Gwynn.Oh yeah. Papi's not quite there yet. This ain't about winning.Prince Fielder 1B
I think "mancrush" is banned for homophobia here. Just have a crush. A nice old fashioned crush.The way Andy talks about the team, that is more true than ever!
Well he's wrong. :)If it was a renovation, why did they call it "the new Yankee Stadium" for so many years?
The rest of the position players would be rather hard to figure. They're all annoying physically fit.Youk with the legs!
I was born during the renovation. So on the day I was born, the Yanks played a home game at Shea Stadium.
Right, it's about sheer size. Prince and Cecil can be on the same team!Speaking of which, I have a new player on my girls' team. Matt Joyce. We saw him in Detroit. I was able to use my "runs like a girl" line.
speaking of tubs of goo, i think david wells said he wants to pitch for the chokers again.
I first saw the Yankees at Shea. I never went to the original Stadium. I wish someone had taken me.
Harvey wrong?? No way, not ever. :)
Matt Joyce. We saw him in Detroit. I was able to use my "runs like a girl" line.Oh, that's exciting! You don't come across one of those very often these days.
yeah Remy and Don were talking about Wells earlier
I guess Jesse Crain would be on the all-birds team...
Andy's "love" is in a league of its own.
speaking of tubs of goo, i think david wells said he wants to pitch for the chokers again.I heard that too. I also heard that Hank doesn't seem to have a problem with it, if you can believe that.He probably wants more fat guys like him on the team.
I don't know. I think there's a difference between a mancrush and a crush. It's not that I want to have Okajima's children, I just admire his MANLY traits in a very MANLY sort of way. God Bless Amurrica.
Crain on the birds team, that's nice. I guess he could also be on the construction equipment team, but I don't know how far that would get.
Dr. D comes thru!We're all fine. No one in my family had damage, although we were all very close.I saw 2 houses on my way out to a job in Advance, NC (about 7 miles from me) today with roofs missing. Pretty freaky.And yes,Amy. Tornados are relatively rare, but we are going to get a bad one it seems every 4-5 years.
tek - do something tangible.
First Yankee game I saw was at Shea also (I had seen many Mets games there, but had never been to a Yankee game until I met Harvey in 1973, though we didn't go to a game until probably 74). Harvey, however, had gone to YS as a kid many times and worked there in high school.Uch, two more insurance runs lost.
To translate Grav's sentence into 'Andy tongue' he would say: I'd like Okajima do me.
I guess he could also be on the construction equipment team, but I don't know how far that would get.Or the all-origami team.
crushes have nothing to do with wanting someone's children! do you think i'm planning to procreate with ellsbury??
Why is it that you almost never see footage of the Yanks' games at Shea in '74 and '75? Obviously not making the post-season helped, but still...
I guess he could also be on the construction equipment team, but I don't know how far that would get.Virgil Trucks.
I don't know. I think there's a difference between a mancrush and a crush. It's not that I want to have Okajima's children, I just admire his MANLY traits in a very MANLY sort of way. God Bless Amurrica.Yeah. There's got to be a difference. I'd say it's more of envy and admiration. Someone you'd like to be, perhaps. Whether it'd be to have their talent, their looks, etc.
"To translate Grav's sentence into 'Andy tongue' he would say: I'd like Okajima do me."I'm sure Andy's tongue would say the same thing.
They should replace Lugo with Lowrie as SS for this half.
I hope Pap has better luck tonight.
It it's envy and admiration, then it ain't a crush. I think the whole man-crush, man-hug, man-date thing is completely homophobic. Two men hug, it's a hug. Get over it!(Not directed at anyone here, all you guys are over it already.)
I hope Pap has better luck tonight.Delmon Young doesn't.
Before Pap's last outing, we wouldn't be sweating this at all!
I can see what you mean L, although I think the true homophobes won't even admit that they 'man-hug' people. I think a lot of the 'man hug,' 'man crush' stuff is sort of done to be funny or ironic.
Yeah, one blown save, and I am nervous for him.
Yeah, it wasn't so much fun to see Pap blow a save the other night. Allan kept saying it was bad luck, but a blown save is a blown save. You sit down three guys in a row, you cancel out the bad luck.
I think the whole man-crush, man-hug, man-date thing is completely homophobic. Two men hug, it's a hug. Get over it!Actually, we agree. It's just fun to say. :)And it REALLY annoys conservatives, which makes it even better.
Yeah, one blown save, and I am nervous for him.These bunts and little duck snorts and things will do that. Gotta shut 'em down right here right now.
Actually, we agree. It's just fun to say. :)And it REALLY annoys conservatives, which makes it even better.that it does
I'm not sweating.
yo, bot, time to start snuffin'
Here's one for the all-construction team.
big pop out
Oi. You've got Gomez here - about as exciting a player as Ellsbury.
Pap - be pap.Thank you.RS Nation
just bring the heat.
"I can see what you mean L, although I think the true homophobes won't even admit that they 'man-hug' people. I think a lot of the 'man hug,' 'man crush' stuff is sort of done to be funny or ironic."They are acting like it's funny or ironic, but if they weren't uncomfortable with the idea, they wouldn't have to say it. There's all levels of homophobia (like every prejudice). Not like they want to hurt anyone or wish bad things on them, but it's not nothing to them, it's still an issue. Or else why say anything?
tek catching some zeds on that SB?
throw this one a little higher
K HIM BOTMAN!
Termel Sledge... kind of halfway to the construction team.
Construction Equip. - Chipper Jones
OK, feeling better with two outs.Man-crush does seem somehow sexist more than homophobic though a bit of both. Like it isn't a girl crush with silliness, but manly. I never think of it as sexual like a crush when I hear it---more like idolizing someone one. That's why I never heard it as homophobic, I guess. But definitely sexist sounding.
Come on Bot, just a little more...[Shovel Hodge, wow!]
s0n of a b1tch
Okay... a little more than that...
Mancrush seems to go along with the whole "I'm not gay... not that there'se anything wrong with that" thing. I've never seen a problem with it, but I guess I can see y'alls point.
I don't disagree with the homophobia thing. I think most straight guys are homophobic in a personal sense. Afraid of being suspected of being gay, etc. Even if they don't have any problem with other guys being gay.The key to these 9th innings for Pap is to not make it tense. Make your pitches and you'll be able to put these guys away.
