Today’s Game/Baseball in Tweets

@Ledger_Yankees Replacing #nyy Why? # I worked a little late today so by the time I got home it was 10 minutes into the game and the #nyy were already up 2-0! Nice news. # Wow. Jorge drilled in the soft tissue of the knee by a pitch. He barely made it around the bases, […]

A-Rod infield hit and a triple tonight. But the eyes are all on Hughes. #nyy # Aww, dammit. Hughes gets hit with a comebacker that ends up an infield hit. His parents are in the stands, though, must be proud. # So I guess this kind of quiets the arguments about how Hughes should've stayed […]

Yankees Lineup Predictions

Okay, fans, it’s time to play that Hot stove game we call “guess the lineup”? The Yankees lose two, probably three main starters from last year’s lineup. Matsui is gone, signed with the Angels, Melky Cabrera is gone, by trade, and likely Johnny Damon is gone, since the Yankees say they won’t meet his agent’s […]

World Series Victory recap video

There’s a lot of great postseason footage and coverage out there to look at. But I really liked this short video from the Star-Ledger. Let’s see if I can get embedding to work:

2009 World Series Game Two Recap

The moment Mark Teixeira’s home run left the field, the party atmosphere at Yankee Stadium was restored. Up until then the atmosphere was tense and the crowd, which had been largely clammed up by the cold weather and Cliff Lee’s dominant pitching the night before, continued to be uncharacteristically quiet in the face of Pedro […]

The “Softer Side” of Jorge Posada

I got an email this morning with an amusing lead in: “The Yankees had an interesting game last night, but to highlight the ‘softer side’ of Jorge Posada, I wanted to send over some information that may be of interest to some of your readers around Charitybuzz auctions that are ending tomorrow, September 17, 2009 […]

Coming soon…

My photos and write-up of opening day at the new Yankee Stadium. Heading back to Massachusetts, will get the pics uploaded when I get there!

And now Sabathia got all stiff during the long inning and walked Jack Wilson on four pitches.Then was plodding along against the next batter but caught him looking.

The inning continues. They put Cano in to pinch hit for matsui. I guess after an RBI double and a homer they figured he was done.

The third inning is still going on. The Yankees have batter around, and there are still two on and one out.

The Yankees have knocked Virgil Vasquez from the game with three doubles and a homer (Matsui) in the third. They are playing Irish-ish music between innings.

Sabathia has now struck out 6 of 9 batters. Coming up next inning, Jack Wilson of the Pirates will be leading off. Is he another shortstop who wears number two because he grew up idolizing Jeter? Like Troy Tuliewitsky in Colorado?

Sabathia is not spotting the fastball well tonight, but the change up is devastating! He has struck out 4 of 6 batters faced but the Pirates did scratch a run.

At the risk of stating the obvious, Sabathia is One Big Dude. Struck out Nyjer Morgan to open the game.

Tuesday at George M. Steinbrenner Field

It’s the first sign of bad weather we’ve had so far on the trip. Gray clouds and a bare sprinkle of rain. It being St. Patrick’s Day, lots of folks are wearing green. The opponent tonight is the Pirates. This means I just saw a guy dressed as a pirate leprechaun.
