  • @Ledger_Yankees what do you know about Huffman? I don't remember him from spring training. #
  • corwin has brought me a shake from Johnny Rockets! This game is going great! (1st pitch not for 20 minutes) We saw the museum, too. #
  • The #Yankees museum has a bunch of new stuff and rearranged exhibits from last year. Very worth visiting every year if they keep updating it #
  • Nice jay z / Alicia keys montage before the game. Audio from their live performance in the postseason we were here for last year. #
  • Jorge posada will catch today! #
  • Is ours the only national anthem that ends with a question? And as Scott Westerfeld pointed out: it has a plot! #
  • Hughes warns up to Metallica. I guess he figures it worked for Mariano… Starts off Bourn with a strike. Damn, infield hit though. #
  • @alysonfooter@ed_price any idea why Berkman sitting today? #
  • . @Ledger_Yankees: #rollcallnyy a.) Boston, but I'm at the game b.) I would catch Posada any day of the week, man! He hot! Ears sexy! #
  • Tex was hit by pitch according to my mom, who is watching the game at home and texting me on her new Blackberry. Ump didn't see it, though. #
  • Cotton candy man just came by shouting "Who wants a root canal?" #worstsalespitchesever #
  • Astros scratched a run in the first on infield hit, walk, stolen base,sac fly. Now after 2.5 innings, Hughes and Moehler kept all Quiet. #
  • Callup Chad Huffman at the plate for the #Yankees We know nothing about him other than he is 24. 6'1" 217lbs. #
  • Huffman legs out an infield single and gets huge ovation! Mick Kelleher collects ball to give him as a souvenir of his 1st big league hit. #
  • @Ledger_Yankees crowd gave him a nice hand, too. Are his parents here? #
  • RT @Ledger_Yankees: Huffman has a bunch of family here today. Cool moment for all of them. #
  • Cano hits his 100th homer! Are the Yankees finally getting to Moehler? Now two outs, back to back walks. #

  • Rain is on the way. Just checked radar and thunderstorms are moving east toward us. But it is an official game now. And my battery is low! #
  • Jorge Posada just hit his second grand slam in two days. There is rejoicing. This stadium is loud! Demanded a curtain call. Got one. #
  • Now 7-1 Yankees after ten men batted in the bottom of the inning. And it's starting to rain. #
  • Steady rain falling all inning. Hughes 111 pitches trying to get them out but labored. Astros back in it! score 4 runs w 2 outs! Marte in. #

  • @alysonfooter Looking forward to following your tweets this weekend during the #yankees series! -Cecilia Tan from Yankees Annual #
  • I will be livetweeting from the #Yankees game today. In the car on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx right now! About to look for parking. #
  • At #Yankees stadium. Didn't manage to quite see the parachute group. Man, they are young! I always think that when I see soldiers. #
  • @Ledger_Yankees you are cold!!! But true. #
  • Cmon Vazquez. Don't suck. #nyy #Yankees #
  • @Zellyanks that scene in spiderman made me cry. Ever since 9/11 I get flashbacks whenever I see new york in peril in movies. #
  • Vazquez strikes out Berkman! Scoreboard reads JAVY NICE DAY #nyy #Yankees #
  • RT @Ledger_Yankees: #rollcallnyy a.) City/State b.) Coolest car you've ever owned. c.) Has Javy been forgiven? #
  • #rollcallnyy @Ledger_Yankees a)Boston,MA b)1983 chevy camaro c)I'll forgive him if he wins today bc I am at the Stadium #
  • Jeter hits a solo shot to leadoff the game. Yay!!! Hunter Pence hits one to leadoff the second. Booooo. #nyy #Yankees #
  • RT @Ledger_Yankees: Scouting report on Wandy Rodriguez: Hella curveballs. #
  • RT @Ledger_Yankees: 24th career leadoff HR for Jeter ties the great Rickey Henderson for most in franchise history. Pretty cool. #
  • Rodriguez throws a lot of 74 mph curves. Dials the fastball up to 85. Thames walked Cervelli singled, but granderson got caught looking. #
  • After popping out on 1st pitch he saw before, Tex changes at bat music to Pearl Jam from I Want to Rock. He walks. Two on no out! #
  • By the way, jeter manufactured a run. Walked, stole, advanced on throwing error. Then swish cashed him in. #
  • That's #Yankees baseball. Swisher hit, Tex walked, cano infield hit, then POSADA GRAND SLAM. #nyy #
  • RT @KenDavidoff: Prior to Posada's slam, SS Manzella tried to deke Jeter with a fake throw. Isn't that like trying to out-sing Sinatra? #
  • RT @Ledger_Yankees: In clubhouse, Jorge said he'd been having a tough time adjusting to the DH thing. Didn't now what to do between innings. #
  • Carlos Lee hit a home run in the top 6. Jeter said, so what? And hit a three run shot in the bottom of the inning. Now 9-3 #Yankees #
  • One thing I really like about the new Yankee stadium, you can still see the train go by in the gap in right field. #
  • The cap game is way too easy with the ginormous videoboard. #
  • Posada hit by pitch. Meanwhile a beautiful yellow and black butterfly is flitting around our section. Everyone watching it. #
  • Can you tell the suspense is gone from this game? Everyone just enjoying a summer day out, now. #
  • Gaudin gets the strikeout and the yankees win! #
  • It's like the astros aren't even in our league … Oh wait. :-) #Yankees #
  • I've still got two tickets to tomorrow's #Yankees vs #Astros game. Make me an offer! Face value $25. Text 617-290-9043 #

Extra Innings in Toronto

June 06, 2010 By: Cecilia Tan Category: Yankee Fan Memories

  • RT @Ledger_Yankees: CC using Cano's bat in BP. Wants to use bats with hits in them. #
  • Jays catcher John Buck just took a bounced pitch right in the nuts. Broadcasters looked at replay and were silent a long moment… #
  • Then finally Bob Lorenz said, "Well, the video speaks for itself." Flaherty: "Glad I'm up in the booth instead of catching right now." #
  • (more…)

  • RT @ed_price: When will Major League Baseball hold umpires accountable? Why can't they be demoted or fired like players, managers or GMs? #
  • RT @BloggingBombers: Wow. The entire press box at Yankee Stadium is howling about the worst call ever made. #
  • (more…)

Vazquez finally wins!

June 02, 2010 By: Cecilia Tan Category: Uncategorized

  • Javy Vazquez inherited the #Yankees curse of low run support from Mike Mussina. #nyy #
  • Orioles elect to pitch to A-Rod in a 1-1 tie with 2 out and men on 2nd & 3rd. Because if they walk him, Cano is next, hottest hitter in AL. #
  • A-Rod is only 1 for 8 off the pitcher they have brought in, but it doesn't matter. He grounds the ball to third, but Tejada munged throw! #
  • 2 runs score on the Tejada error and poor Brian Matusz is burned again. But Javy Vazquez is now in line for the win. IF NY bullpen can do it #
  • And the Yankees finally win on a night Vazquez pitches well! Great pitching and one big Orioles error made the difference. #
