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.

Mr. Customer 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.

Dusty Baker said...

Breast wishes for an enjoyable game!

Ta ta for now, though.

Spanky said...

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

Dusty Baker said...

"Tough Tittie Yanks"

I rented that last night on PPV.

Mr. Customer said...

On to the boob thread.

Josh S. said...

GO O-DOG!

Dusty Baker said...

*eats Scooby snack, solves mystery*

Dusty Baker said...

*loses glasses then steps on them at inopportune time*

Dusty Baker said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Fan 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.

Dusty 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!!

Dusty 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 Fan said...

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

NicJ said...

miller?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No Morgan, I'm assuming.

NicJ said...

miller actually looks like a penis though.

Dusty Baker said...

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

Spanky said...

I miss Tony Gwynn.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Joe Morgan is a boob.

Steve Sax said...

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

Spanky said...

AWWWWWW Yeah. Homer

NicJ said...

Yank it Sucks!!!!

Steve Sax said...

HR Cuddyer!

Udderly fantastic!

Mr. Customer said...

Let's go twinkles!

el montanero said...

Steve Sax said...

Rack 'em up, Twins!

Steve Sax said...

Impressive AB for Jeter

rbnlaw said...

I heard it's a bit nipply at Target Field.

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Mr. Customer said...

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

el montanero said...

is a-fraud reverting back to his old october ineptness? are megan fox's nipples winking at me? so many questions.

Steve Sax said...

Hudson hits a single and juggs to first base.

el montanero said...

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

Spanky said...

EAT SHIT YANKS

Dusty 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 Fan said...

The Twins are busting out!

Spanky said...

Call the fucking game ASSHOLES

el montanero 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 Fan said...

Haters gonna hate.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

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

#clutch

Spanky said...

I really do miss Tony Gwynn

Mr. LA Sports Fan 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?

Spanky said...

The twins are getting man-handled right now.

Spanky said...

Game Over

Mr. Customer said...

Son

Fred's Brim said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Danny Valencia swings I will murder him.

Spanky said...

Fucking Idiot. HaHa

Mr. LA Sports Fan 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.

Spanky said...

AHH! You fool

Spanky said...

What's the haps,Karina

Spanky said...

Fuck!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Aw dammit.

Mr. Customer 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

Spanky said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Go Delmon Young!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Go Jim Thome!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You suck, Thome.

Spanky said...

Thome your not......good

Josh S. said...

That was Dodgers Thome, not Twins Thome.

Dusty 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!

Spanky said...

HATE YOU POSADA HATE YOU

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HATERS GONNA HATE

el montanero said...

posada is a rich man's victorino.

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

el montanero said...

like the new pic, mlasf.

dickishness...yankee fans has it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Looks like Repko made the right move.

Mr. Customer said...

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

Spanky said...

Get some runs you bastards

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

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

#2001,2004

Mr. Customer said...

Sighting, that is.

Spanky said...

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

Dusty Baker said...

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

Dusty Baker said...

Surely you chest, Spanky.

Spanky said...

Fucking shit man

Mr. Customer said...

Fack.

Dusty Baker said...

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

Spanky said...

Payback from last year

Spanky said...

Dummy

Josh S. said...

Weren't they supposed to lose this one anyway?

This was a Dodgeresque loss.

Mr. Customer said...

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

Dusty Baker said...

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

Mr. Customer said...

Chuy hates the Yankees.

Dusty Baker said...

Yankees are a buncha ninnies.

Dusty 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!

Dusty Baker said...

*runs in place before finally making forward momentum*

Orel said...

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