ALDS Game 1 Thread: Yankees @ Twins, 5.30p

Yank Twins! Get it?

CC Sabathia (21-7, 3.18) vs. Francisco Liriano (14-10, 3.62).

COMMENTS: Liriano, Liriano...where did I first hear that name again? Oh yeah, the Giants' draft pick that they traded away for A.J. Pierzynski. That's right! Well, he goes up against some no-name (also) in pinstripes, at the friendly home-field environment of Target Field.

photo: Jupiter Images. I really wanted to use this one but opted for the more family-friendly option. Oh, screw it:

@Josh S: I think you'll agree this is the day's best photo pun.

Both of them.

Nostradamus said...

The kids are cute, too.

Josh S. said...

Boobs ARE family-friendly, no matter what Sesame Workshop would have you believe.

Definitely your breast work, Sax.

Kyle Baker said...

Breast wishes for an enjoyable game!

Ta ta for now, though.

spank said...

Breast assured,the Twins will prevail.Tough Tittie Yanks.

Kyle Baker said...

"Tough Tittie Yanks"

I rented that last night on PPV.

Nostradamus said...

On to the boob thread.

Josh S. said...

GO O-DOG!

Kyle Baker said...

*eats Scooby snack, solves mystery*

Kyle Baker said...

*loses glasses then steps on them at inopportune time*

Kyle Baker said...

*meddles so that crooks don't get away with it*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If mammery serves me correctly, the Twins are the only team in the playoffs that have an OPS+ close to the Yankees.

Boobs.

Josh S. said...

CC will throw a negative-one-hitter.

Kyle Baker said...

Lasorda is only titularly associated with Sons of Steve Garvey.

NicJ said...

so the last thread featured douchebags and this one features funbags?

nice!!

Kyle Baker said...

We'll milk this pun as long as we can.

Is Mauer still nursing an injury?

Josh S. said...

Orel's calling the game on radio with the guy who looks like a penis in a clown suit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mauer's playing, but the Twins will be lacting Justin Morneau.

NicJ said...

miller?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

No Morgan, I'm assuming.

NicJ said...

miller actually looks like a penis though.

Kyle Baker said...

Getting ready to head home. It's a bit nipply out but I hear it's supposed to warm back up.

spank said...

I miss Tony Gwynn.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Joe Morgan is a boob.

Steve Sax said...

Yanks hit some knockers but didn't score in the first.

spank said...

AWWWWWW Yeah. Homer

NicJ said...

Yank it Sucks!!!!

Steve Sax said...

HR Cuddyer!

Udderly fantastic!

Nostradamus said...

Let's go twinkles!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Steve Sax said...

Impressive AB for Jeter

rbnlaw said...

Fred's Brim said...

Nostradamus said...

Ol' bitch-tits with the the three pitch swinging K

Cliff Beefpile said...

Steve Sax said...

Hudson hits a single and juggs to first base.

Cliff Beefpile said...

i can't find my old orlando hudson jersey. i may have to look in the a-t-t-i-c.

spank said...

EAT SHIT YANKS

Kyle Baker said...

Shiteater Yankees!

MR.F said...

I suck at the puns! I'm just not as well-endowed with the pun skills as you guys.

Josh S. said...

@Mr. F: Just reach your hand into those punbags and feel around a little.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Twins are busting out!

spank said...

Call the fucking game ASSHOLES

Cliff Beefpile said...

watching sabathia reminds me of that old irish southpaw tig o'bitties. i wonder whatever happened to him. i haven't been kept abreast of his whereabouts.

i'm surprised one of the ladies hasn't showed up and put an end to this.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Haters gonna hate.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Only two batters have a hit against Liriano. One of whom is Derek Jeter.

#clutch

spank said...

I really do miss Tony Gwynn

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

And of course Markie doubles as I say that.

Josh S. said...

Did Twins fans have to buy tickets to six future postseason games at Target Field in order to secure their seats for this game?

spank said...

The twins are getting man-handled right now.

spank said...

Game Over

Nostradamus said...

Fred's Brim said...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Danny Valencia swings I will murder him.

spank said...

Fucking Idiot. HaHa

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

YOU'RE SAFE, DANNY BOY.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

you can say whatever you want, but it'd be nice a picture of Joe Mauer here or there.There are some other Twins who deserve an equal boob treatment around here, just for the ladies.

spank said...

AHH! You fool

spank said...

What's the haps,Karina

spank said...

Fuck!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aw dammit.

Nostradamus said...

Damnation.

karina said...

A big hello to my fantasy football rival this week!

busy day, Spanky.By the way, I've been reading your comments and it just occurred to me if you could find a Sith master, you could give Darth Maul a run for his money and I mean it like a big compliment

spank said...

Thanks Karina, But what makes you think I am not the Sith Master.Maybe I am looking for an apprentice.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Go Delmon Young!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Go Jim Thome!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You suck, Thome.

spank said...

Thome your not......good

Josh S. said...

That was Dodgers Thome, not Twins Thome.

Kyle Baker said...

"if you could find a Sith master, you could give Darth Maul a run for his money"

THIS is why I love SoSG!

spank said...

HATE YOU POSADA HATE YOU

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

HATERS GONNA HATE

Cliff Beefpile said...

posada is a rich man's victorino.

as a wise man once said, "hate! hate! hate! hate! hate!"

Cliff Beefpile said...

like the new pic, mlasf.

dickishness...yankee fans has it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They like the best, and they don't like savings the money.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like Repko made the right move.

Nostradamus said...

Repko signing. Perhaps he can break Posada's femur in a play at the plate.

spank said...

Get some runs you bastards

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mariano's in. So you know it's gonna be a win.

#2001,2004

Nostradamus said...

Sighting, that is.

spank said...

He is not going to get a hit with a name like Denard

Kyle Baker said...

Burn Rivera up for the rest of the playoffs starting right...now.

Kyle Baker said...

Surely you chest, Spanky.

spank said...

Fucking shit man

Nostradamus said...

Fack.

Kyle Baker said...

Twins have two huge ones they need to make up in the 9th.

spank said...

Payback from last year

spank said...

Dummy

Josh S. said...

Weren't they supposed to lose this one anyway?

This was a Dodgeresque loss.

Nostradamus said...

So I only got the game I didn't really care about today? Weak fucking sauce.

Kyle Baker said...

After that last out, loads of Yankmes vitriol spewed forth in the Baker household. At least the loss was cathartic.

Nostradamus said...

Chuy hates the Yankees.

Kyle Baker said...

Yankees are a buncha ninnies.

Kyle Baker said...

*recommends that we split up and that Shaggy and Scoob go that way*

Steve Sax said...

Nice scarf, Dusty Fred Baker

karina said...

@Dusty Baker SoSG is the place where geekness is celebrated! i.e the new game between Sons and readers

I love my snarkies :)

karina said...

@Spanky I beg for your forgiveness, Master

karina said...

100!

Steve Sax said...

It gets even more geeky today, karina!

Kyle Baker said...

*runs in place before finally making forward momentum*

Orel said...

Surprised D.D. didn't check in on this thread.
