Games 65-67 Thread: June 7-9 @ Yankees

Fri 6.7 4p: Yamamoto vs. Poteet
Sat 6.8 4.30p: Stone vs. Cortes
Sun 6.9 4p: Glasnow vs. Gil

Baseball royalty will be on stage this weekend, with arguably two of the top three teams in the majors this year, battling it out in the Bronx. The Yankees enter the series with an eight-game win streak, but might be without the services of slugger Juan Soto, who exited Thursday's game with forearm discomfort.

The Dodgers have plenty of discomfort of their own, what with hordes of players on the injured list, not to mention smarting from two shutdown losses in Pittsburgh to start out this road trip. Sure, Thursday's 11-7 victory was nice, but what should have been a coast to an easy victory (the Dodgers were up 3-0 after three batters, thanks to a Freddie Freeman HR) instead got precarious, thanks to another shaky start by Walker Buehler, an uncharacteristic three runs allowed by Evan Phillips, and yet another Chris Taylor hitless day (to be fair, Taylor thankfully didn't start the game).

So I'm not feeling very good about entering the lions' den here this weekend. The way we're playing, I think we only take one of the three games.

soto left last nights game but mri came back negative. he's not in tonights lineup but boone says he'll probably be available.

damn. i was hoping to miss him this series.

karen said...

dodgers are the underdogs in this series. peleton 294 will be there this weekend.

spank said...

let's do this!

let's go Dodgers!!

spank said...

wtf? i thought this game is apple tv? the Dodgers and Yankees are broadcasting their games but i dont get them on mlbtv. i live in san diego territory so only padres games get blacked out. im stuck fucking with the computer stream

karen said...

that sucks spanky

karen said...

teo makes a great catch off the wall in left to start b1

spank said...

damn. nice grab T

karen said...

yoshi out of the first giving up a double to judge

Steve Sax said...

kike mics up and makes an error. way to go, kike

spank said...

stupid kiki with the wire on

Steve Sax said...

yamamoto's fastball apparently has more life tonight: some of his fastest pitches he's thrown all year.

Steve Sax said...

yamamaoto got robbed on that pitch, it was perfect

Steve Sax said...

and grisham makes the dodgers pay, single to right. yankees at the corners with two out

Steve Sax said...

the apple tv announcers know that kike is rattled now, so they're not asking him as many questions. kike had better lock in. if this runner scores, he's gonna have to eat that mike.

Steve Sax said...

yamamoto gets the k to end the inning. get that mic off of kike, stat

Steve Sax said...

0-0 through 2

QuadSevens said...

After the error, you could really see how Kiké’s mood changed. Keep the mics on outfielders.

karen said...

remember when jt was mic-ed up during the postseason. somebody should have been fired for that.

Steve Sax said...

torres with a one-out error, allowing kike to reach first. mookie up.

Steve Sax said...

now kike gets fucking picked off first. kike, you know where you can stick that mike.

QuadSevens said...

Rough night for Kiké already. Yeesh!

Steve Sax said...

ohtani flies to center, ending the top of the third.

karen said...

@sax...how are the stomach knots doing? i think you passed them onto me.

spank said...

kiki earning that banana suit

Steve Sax said...

@karen: kike is gonna make me use caps just to yell at his sorry ass

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

yankees starter luis gil is 8-1 with a 1.82 era and 85 ks. that's over a run better in era over glasnow (2.93 era), albeit 104 ks.

spank said...

@saxy...yep, roberts came through that time

karen said...

i'm wondering if the whole story about soto being available friday night was a bluff. i don't think he is in the lineup today either.

spank said...

let's do this!!

karen said...

thats a catch for heyward

karen said...

@spanky...are you prepared to hit the sauce for me if necessary?

karen said...

teo again!!

spank said...

spank said...
