Go Dickey!
   2. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:01 PM (#4165210)
I know Dickey's going to come back to Earth eventually, but I'd be pretty content with this whole season* if he just dominated again tonight.

*Not sure I'm even allowed to make those sorts of deals after having the no-hitter this year.
   3. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:02 PM (#4165212)
Let's go let's go let's go.

I am behind Banta's deal with whatever baseball devil he'd like to cite.
   4. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:04 PM (#4165213)
BTW, I saw Moonrise Kingdom last night. I'm a little stunned with how lauded it's been and I LIKE Wes Anderson. It seemed kind of average. I do wish I hadn't seen the previews beforehand, I think.
   5. Joshemy Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:05 PM (#4165215)
This is the first Dickey start I will be able to see start to finish. I am excited.
   6. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:06 PM (#4165216)
This is a pretty big game.
   7. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:06 PM (#4165217)
Previews ruin almost every movie. My movie experience goes up by like 15% if I don't know anything about the movie going in.
   8. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:08 PM (#4165218)
Here it comes! 27 pitch perfect game!
   9. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:10 PM (#4165219)
That ball Granderson hit moved and sounded like it was made out of masking tape and plastic.
   10. DKDC Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:11 PM (#4165220)
Granderson makes me sad as a Yankee. He really seems like a pretty good dude who will find a way ti escape the pinstripes and redeem himself.
   11. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:11 PM (#4165221)
Haha, Dickey's awesome.
   12. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:11 PM (#4165222)
God, what a pretty first inning.
   13. DKDC Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:12 PM (#4165223)
Sounds like a pro-Dickey crowd.
   14. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:13 PM (#4165227)
Dickey!
   15. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:13 PM (#4165228)
This is my first time seeing Dickey pitch this year. It's just one inning, but I get it now. Oh my god.
   16. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:15 PM (#4165229)
Previews ruin almost every movie.

I might see a trailer, but after I get the gist I don't watch anymore. I was ready to plug my ears and close my eyes if The Dark Knight Rises trailer came on the last time I went to the movies, but they didn't show it.
   17. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:17 PM (#4165231)
That pitch at A-Rod's head, by the way, was almost like a perfect, slightly surreal touch that actually proves his dominance. A writer would probably put that in.
   18. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:22 PM (#4165233)
Woo, the David!
   19. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:24 PM (#4165235)
The David X2!
   20. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:30 PM (#4165238)
You suck Turner.
   21. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:32 PM (#4165240)
Stabilize this, Dickey.
   22. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:35 PM (#4165243)
What the hell was that?
   23. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:35 PM (#4165244)
Alright Wright!

DB
   24. Joshemy Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:35 PM (#4165245)
Nice pick David! And good work RA
   25. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:35 PM (#4165246)
Woo!
   26. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:35 PM (#4165247)
Good job, Dickey. Biggest threat in weeks there.
   27. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:37 PM (#4165249)
That was an exciting inning. Before Ibanez's hit I was going to call a no-hitter for Dickey, but somehow Teixeira scores and CC throws a 7-hit shutout.
   28. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:37 PM (#4165250)
BTW, while we're in the break, let me just say that I love the old-style Mets pinstripe uniform.

Takes me back to the '69 - '73 teams.

DB
   29. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:39 PM (#4165251)
Seriously, what the hell was that? Was the third-base coach aware that the backup catcher and the pitcher were due up?

And that the Yankees are facing a pretty good pitcher?
   30. The Ghost fouled out, but stays in the game Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:39 PM (#4165252)
Would Tex have been safe there? I thought it was funny to hold him with Stewart and the pitcher coming up. Stewart's job was to get the guy in from third, but was that a reasonable hope vs. Dickey?.
   31. The Ghost fouled out, but stays in the game Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:40 PM (#4165254)
Coke to TVe.
   32. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:41 PM (#4165257)
CC's getting a lot of movement on his pitches.

DB
   33. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:44 PM (#4165258)
I miss when Larry Bowa was the Yankees third-base coach.
   34. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:45 PM (#4165259)
Nice bit of "hit 'em where they ain't" by Cedeno and Thole.

DB
   35. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:46 PM (#4165262)
And that the Yankees have their ace on the mound, where one run could mean a lot? It was going to be close at the plate, and Teix may have been out. But you still have to send him.
   36. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:47 PM (#4165264)
Mostly movement out of the infield and onto the outfield grass, DB. Hope it doesn't continue.
   37. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:48 PM (#4165265)
#36 - I laughed.

DB
   38. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:49 PM (#4165267)
I was out buying cat food. Really.

But it's too bad that Tex didn't get sent and then get clotheslined by Thole, I would have liked that.
   39. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:51 PM (#4165268)
Heh. That was a great "geez, wtf" shot of Jeter.
   40. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:53 PM (#4165270)
I did not see Dickey throw "at" A-Rod in the first. That is really cool. You don't see professional athletes with those expressions on their faces(particularly Rod) very often.
   41. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:54 PM (#4165272)
Pfffffft. Annoying. Absolutely nothing he could have done, too.
   42. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:57 PM (#4165275)
Bah.
   43. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:57 PM (#4165276)
Nice while it lasted (the streak, that is).

DB
   44. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:59 PM (#4165277)
####
   45. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:59 PM (#4165278)
I knew they shouldn't have moved those fences in.

DB
   46. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:59 PM (#4165279)
I admit it. I yelled and jumped around a bit at work.
   47. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 08:59 PM (#4165280)
You knew it was going to be tonight.
   48. Banta Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:01 PM (#4165282)
Bah.
   49. Joshemy Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:01 PM (#4165284)
Dickey is up in the zone a lot tonight.
   50. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:07 PM (#4165287)
Nice hustle by Torres.

DB
   51. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:09 PM (#4165289)
Good work; get 'em back one at a time.

DB
   52. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:14 PM (#4165291)
Guys, we've been missing the most important thing all along - this is also a battle for acronymic superiority in baseball.
   53. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:15 PM (#4165294)
The NL All-Star team may include an AJ as well.
   54. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:16 PM (#4165296)
That's great mitt work from Dickey.
   55. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:16 PM (#4165297)
I mean Thole.
   56. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:20 PM (#4165299)
The NL All-Star team may include an AJ as well.

Two of them.
   57. Ray (RDP) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:20 PM (#4165300)
Watching the game on ESPN. Hey. I wonder if RA Dickey had a scoreless innings streak going.
   58. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:23 PM (#4165302)
I wasn't expecting that fly to turn into an adventure.

DB
   59. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:26 PM (#4165304)
How about Terry Collins calling him "Buster"? I've never heard anyone take that seriously before.
   60. Yonder Alonso in misguided trousers (cardinal) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:38 PM (#4165312)
56: Who's the other?
   61. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:41 PM (#4165314)
I'm not thrilled with CC's pitch count, though he isn't the kind of guy who will come out early because of a high one.

Also, considering the score, I may be just looking for something not to like.
   62. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:42 PM (#4165315)
56: Who's the other?

Burnett. Or Ellis.
   63. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:43 PM (#4165316)
I like one bit of analysis from earlier in this broadcast. Whoever was talking said something about how CC bought himself "good teammate" cred by pitching every fourth day because the Brewers needed him to do that a few years ago.
   64. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:44 PM (#4165317)
They actually showed Phil Niekro in a Yankees uniform?!?

Geez.

DB
   65. Yonder Alonso in misguided trousers (cardinal) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:45 PM (#4165318)
Ellis. Dodgers catcher who's, huh, doing pretty well.

Burnett's also doing surprisingly well, at that. I didn't realize that.
   66. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:46 PM (#4165319)
By the way, I have absolutely zero doubt that AJ would have an infinite ERA if he were still on the Yankees.

For Scranton.
   67. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:48 PM (#4165320)
Now would be a good time for Wright to go yard.

DB
   68. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:49 PM (#4165321)
That'll work.

DB
   69. Yonder Alonso in misguided trousers (cardinal) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:50 PM (#4165322)
Oof. That was a nerve-wracking few seconds.
   70. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 09:52 PM (#4165325)
Get 'em back one at a time.

DB
   71. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:10 PM (#4165332)
Good eye Vinnie.

DB
   72. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:11 PM (#4165333)
Have you heard that the Mets score runs with 2 outs? ESPN told me. Many times.
   73. Joshemy Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:11 PM (#4165334)
Torres!
   74. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:11 PM (#4165335)
Seeing eye grounder...YES!

Good for two runs.

DB
   75. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:13 PM (#4165336)
Woohooooo!
   76. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:16 PM (#4165338)
And now it's tied!

DB
   77. Joshemy Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:16 PM (#4165339)
That pitch did nothing...

Ruben!
   78. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:16 PM (#4165340)
Girardi doing a mediocre job with the bullpen yet again...
   79. Yonder Alonso in misguided trousers (cardinal) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:17 PM (#4165341)
Al(W)right!

(who wasn't involved, but maybe he'll help me out here)
   80. AJMcCringleberry Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:18 PM (#4165342)
Let's go Wright!
   81. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:19 PM (#4165343)
Are they going to leave the right-hander in?

DB
   82. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:19 PM (#4165345)
Yep, I guess they are.

DB
   83. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:21 PM (#4165346)
Ron Hunt would've let that one hit him.

DB
   84. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:22 PM (#4165348)
So the big match-up between RA & CC ends up with both pitchers getting a no-decision.

DB
   85. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:23 PM (#4165349)
Hard to complain after we tied the game with 2 outs, but..... argh! (In other words, I still will.)
   86. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:23 PM (#4165350)
Back in the day, Casey used to offer a $100 bonus to any player that would get hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

I think Ron Hunt collected twice one year.

DB
   87. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:31 PM (#4165353)
Nice piece of pitching by Batista.

DB
   88. Yonder Alonso in misguided trousers (cardinal) Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:35 PM (#4165355)
Wait, Frank Francisco's on the DL?
   89. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:37 PM (#4165356)
It's very frustrating that the guys in the back of the Yankees' bullpen are better than everyone in the Mets' pen.
   90. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:37 PM (#4165357)
Excluding Freddy Garcia, that is.
   91. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:41 PM (#4165358)
Wait, Frank Francisco's on the DL?


15 days; left oblique strain.

DB
   92. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:42 PM (#4165360)
According to ESPN:

With Francisco out, the team will probably use reliever Bobby Parnell as the closer, according to Collins.


DB
   93. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:43 PM (#4165361)
Sigh.
   94. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:43 PM (#4165362)
Rats.

DB
   95. Lassus Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:45 PM (#4165364)
Who the flyingfuck decided to leave Bautista in for more than an inning?
   96. King Berenger Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:46 PM (#4165365)
I would've left him in, especially given the state of the rest of your bullpen. And Boone Logan's coming out for at least some of the 8th too.
   97. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:47 PM (#4165366)
Batista has been better out of the pen that I'd have expected, but Collins has been relying on him way too much.
   98. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 10:55 PM (#4165367)
OK; out of the inning with just the one run.

It's still a game.

DB
   99. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 11:05 PM (#4165369)
Good job finding the hole, Torres.

DB
   100. Downtown Bookie Posted: June 24, 2012 at 11:06 PM (#4165370)
Now let's see if he's running.
