    Wow, early lineup today, Chad!!!

    Anyway, consider today’s GTLU cancelled. :lol:

    86w183, thanks for playing anyway. :)

  2. thunderzz June 12th, 2010 at 9:42 am

    I like Russo playing 3rd so we don;t have an automatic out, I love Pena but Im good with having him as a late game defensive replacement.

  3. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 9:45 am

    Let’s hope that Vasquez continues to throw the ball well and the offense comes alive.

    If we get over the hump today.

    It’s broom time tomorrow. :)

  4. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 9:48 am

    And in other news:

    U-Jim won another game !

    Just mail it in when you see his name on the Line up card.

    Why bother ? :)

    25 + games this year ?

  5. fluff n scuff June 12th, 2010 at 9:48 am

    Yanks best in AL east in last 10 games going 7-3. Making move to first place.

  6. Roger(The Dutch Yankees Fan) June 12th, 2010 at 9:49 am

    Anyone looking forward to today’s game against England?

  7. pat June 12th, 2010 at 9:50 am

    Good Morning.

    I played the GTLU game Home Edition and lost. Thought Moeller all the way today. :sad:

  8. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Roger-

    I dont follow soccer but isn’t the US a specialist in the breakaway play
    especially when it comes to England ?

    Haven’t they already learned their lesson ? ;)

    We beat ‘em over 200 years ago in the biggest game of all time.

    They went down for good after that.

  9. Bronx Jeers June 12th, 2010 at 9:59 am

    And U-Jim got relatively roughed up last night allowing 3 in 6 albeit it wasn’t exactly optimum pitching conditions.

  10. Roger(The Dutch Yankees Fan) June 12th, 2010 at 9:59 am

    To be honest..I don’t really know a lot of American players so I don’t know what to expect. England is a good team but I don’t see them as one of the favorites.Anything can happen.

    Is this game a big thing in America right now or not?In the Netherland the streets are orange and everyone is talking about it.

  11. Fran (the original) and OPPC member June 12th, 2010 at 10:00 am

    Doreen,

    Glad you cancelled GTLU. Saves me from a loss today :)

  12. rb June 12th, 2010 at 10:00 am

    pat, I would have had Cisco & Granderson flipped.

  13. GreenBeret7 June 12th, 2010 at 10:03 am

    We beat ‘em over 200 years ago in the biggest game of all time

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    The Yanks beat ‘em in the rematch about 30 years later. Then spent the next 140 years bailing them out.

  14. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:03 am

    Roger -

    You are asking the wrong person about that.

    I do love an ice cold bottle of Heineken though. :)

  15. Zach S June 12th, 2010 at 10:04 am

    Get back soon Gardy!

  16. Roger(The Dutch Yankees Fan) June 12th, 2010 at 10:05 am

    MTU

    That’s something we have in common then

  17. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:07 am

    GB-

    Good Morning.

    We Americans have big hearts, and used to have big wallets. :)

    Don’t ever trust a Brittish built carburetor. That’s all I can say.

  18. JG29 June 12th, 2010 at 10:09 am

    What is Cashman waiting for to pick up another bat??? The russo’s, pena’s, thame’s are not cutting it. They need a DH.Who knows how healthy A-rod will be the rest of the year and Posada looks lost at the plate. Wake up cashman and get a bat in here!

  19. LGY June 12th, 2010 at 10:09 am

    What beautiful job the country of SA has done so far from the stadiums to the ceremonies.

    I was there 2 years ago when they when people around the world were raising questions about whether the country would be ready for the Cup.

    And what a shame Mr. Mandela could not be there for the opening ceremonies yesterday, because some idiot drove drunk.

    He of all people should be the one most celebrating this great thing for his country, but instead is mourning the loss of his great grandaughter :(

  20. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:10 am

    Roger-

    “That’s something we have in common”

    Well I loved Groningen, tulips, windmills and the lovely Dutch women too.

    Any of that strike a chord ? :)

  21. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:15 am

    LGY-

    What took you to SA ?

  22. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:16 am

    Roger-

    And I almost forgot to mention my favorite Artist M.C. Escher. :) :) :)

  23. Erica in NY June 12th, 2010 at 10:21 am

    Good morning everyone :-)

  24. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:22 am

    Hola Erica

    Que tal ? :)

  25. pat June 12th, 2010 at 10:24 am

    Can someone tell me why it sounds like a swarm of bees have invaded the World Cup game on ESPN or is it just our TV

  26. Roger(The Dutch Yankees Fan) June 12th, 2010 at 10:25 am

    We have a lot in commen!

  27. LGY June 12th, 2010 at 10:27 am

    MTU,

    I did a summer study abroad/training program. Basically learned how to develop non profit organizations and had to get our own project off the ground working in groups of 4-5 with students from the US and all over Africa.

    Being able to see the country and travel a bit after the program was over while earning credit didn’t hurt either ;)

  28. Erica in NY June 12th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    MTU-

    Not much. Trying to get ready for the beach and I am a little off my game this morning.

    I have this powder I use on my hair on days between washes. I just put way too much in my hair and now it looks the the left side of my hair went completely gray overnight. LOL

  29. Sean & Co. June 12th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    today’s game against England?

    ———

    Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

    We don’t watch Rugby.

    Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

  30. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    LGY-

    I have never been to SA but I know people who have.

    They described the climate as being wonderful and the backcountry with all it’s wildlife as fantastic.

    See Kruger NP or any of the others ?

  31. Roger(The Dutch Yankees Fan) June 12th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    MTU.Why Groningen btw?Did you study there?

  32. Joe from Long Island June 12th, 2010 at 10:31 am

    Good morning, all –

    1. Nice win last night. As Chad points out, bench – Cisco, Russo – played big parts in that win. Now just 1 game back, with Tampa coming down to earth. I can sense that order is about to be restored, and the universe will be at peace :)

    2. Story in the NY Times this morning. Bud has relieved Jimmie Lee Solomon, exec. VP of MLB, from his duties in supervising the umpires. Frank Robinson will now oversee them, as well as on-field operations and security. It’s about time a change was made. Ever since Solomon took over for Sandy Alderson, the umpiring has gone downhill. Frank Robinson has a tremendous reputation as a baseball man, so I’m optimistic that things will improve, maybe not this season, but going forward.

  33. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:32 am

    Erica-

    Don’t forget the Suncreen and try to be kind to the Men who are waiting in line to meet you.

    Please don’t kick sand in their face. I’m sure they have waited patiently for the chance to meet you. :)

  34. SAS June 12th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Good morning everyone. I am looking for another Yankees win even with another compromised lineup. We have had lots of those this year. It was nice last week when the full starting lineup played last week.

  35. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    Roger-

    You might say I like the more out of the way type places (what a surprise, huh ?).

    I was on my way to the Danish countryside and Groningen was right in the way. ;)

  36. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos June 12th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Joe from Long Island -

    Wow. That’s quite a development. It is about time, but at least a good step.

  37. SAS June 12th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Interesting news Joe for L.I.

    Interesting news Joe from L.I.

  40. MG June 12th, 2010 at 10:37 am

    I wonder why so many of you think the Yankees aren’t doing a good job offensively. Here are some relevant MLB team stats and where they stand against all the other teams:

    Batting Average: 1 (tied with Cinn)
    Runs Scored: 2 (Sox are #1 by 3 runs but have played 2 more games so Yankees lead in runs/game)
    RBI: 2 (again, Sox are #1 but have the extra games)
    BA with RISP: 10
    RBI with RISP: 1 (they have 25 more than the #2)
    RBI with RISP and 2 Outs: 2 (Atlanta has 3 more, big whoop)

    These may not be good in your video games or fantasy leagues but in the real world, where it counts, these are about as good as it gets.

  41. Erica in NY June 12th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    Joe from LI-

    Thanks for sharing that

  42. Roger(The Dutch Yankees Fan) June 12th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    MTU

    You’re American and you’ve been to Groningen.I’m dutch and have never been there..Lol

  43. Erica in NY June 12th, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Leaving for the beach now. Catch you all much much later tonight (if the weather cooperates)

  44. LGY June 12th, 2010 at 10:39 am

    MTU,

    I did not go to Kruger. I was on the southern tip for my entire stay. Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, etc.

    I did go to Ado Elephant Park as well as a reserve where they rescue lions from abuse and take care of them.

    Also, will never forget my trip to Robben Island and seeing Mr Mandela’s jail cell.

    Absolutely beautiful country and people. Very underrated as a travel spot. I hope to return one day and see more of the country.

  45. Yoda June 12th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    “BA with RISP: 10″

    Satified?

    You have such low standards.

  46. Yoda June 12th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Satisfied.

  47. braeden June 12th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Boy reading the http://www.denverpost.com they admit the Rockies got away with a win. The game should never have been played, the fielders couldn’t see the ball. The post says it was raining harder when the game started than during the rain delay. They refer to the game as a rinse cycle. Ubaldo said, the team won for him, he was having grip problems, due to the rain.

    I say thank you Rockies, you beat the Yankees division rival and they gained a game on the Rays!!

  48. Phil Columbus June 12th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    It is the sound of the fans playing plastic trumpets.

    Is the sun out on LI? Not looking like much of a beach day today in Westchester.

    ——————————-
    and you are a moron, they are tops in RBIs with RISP, that is the most relevant stat by far.

  51. Yoda June 12th, 2010 at 10:45 am

    And here we go. The name calling already started.

  52. MTU (aka GBURL) June 12th, 2010 at 10:46 am

    Roger-

    That is frequently the case on how it is. People travel 1000′s of mile to see things and often miss the beauty right in their backyard.

    LGY-

    Please do that and report back.

  53. pat June 12th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    Phil Columbus

    Thanks for the explanation. My future World Cup viewing will be done with the TV on mute because that was pebble in your shoe annoying.

  54. Chris June 12th, 2010 at 10:50 am

    Just the presence of MG lowered the blog accumulative IQ by 50 points.

  55. What? June 12th, 2010 at 10:50 am

    SAS

    Full starting line up? Did Nick Johnson come back?

  56. upstate kate June 12th, 2010 at 11:04 am

    Doreen
    sorry to miss GTLU, altho i would not have selected that!

    Its been pouring here all am. It finally stopped for awhile so I took the dog for a walk and then went for a run. Hope the weather is better downstate.

  57. SAS June 12th, 2010 at 11:05 am

    What?,

    lol….I forgot he is on the team. I don’t know if it is old age or wishful thinking..

  58. stuart June 12th, 2010 at 11:06 am

    gardner tommorrow and that will help.

    go out and get a bat!!!!!!!!Where, who, and how much. Not happening fantasy baseball geek.

  59. SAS June 12th, 2010 at 11:07 am

    pat

    It isn’t so nice in Westchester. What town do you live in?

  60. upstate kate June 12th, 2010 at 11:09 am

    MG
    thats for the stats. Sometimes we focus on the negatives of our own team and don’t think that every other team faces the same challenges.

  61. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos June 12th, 2010 at 11:09 am

    upstate kate -

    You didn’t miss much! The lineup was posted so early, and there was only one person playing. So, I cancelled it. :)

  62. upstate kate June 12th, 2010 at 11:09 am

    whoops, I meant thanks!

  63. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos June 12th, 2010 at 11:15 am

    In Central NJ, the sun keeps going in and out, and it’s not really warm, but not chilly either. An “iffy” day if ever there was one.

  64. SAS June 12th, 2010 at 11:17 am

    I think Erica goes to the beach unless it is raining. I think her friends are there so I hope she has fun.

  65. Rishi June 12th, 2010 at 11:20 am

    :arrow:

  66. Cookiepuss June 12th, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    The Yanks need to trade A-Rod, Teixiera, Granderson, and Posada after this season and replace them with M.L.B.-ready rookies at 1B, 3B, SS, and LF to go with Cano, Cervelli, Gardner, Swisher, and a re-signed for two years only Jeter at DH.

    The Yanks should offer Jeter two years at his 2010 salary per year because what’s Jeter gonna do, collect his 3000th hit elsewhere since he’s not reaching that mark this year?
    The Yanks have all the leverage. If he leaves, he looks greedy esp.after he got a decade-long contract.

    The way I see it, two of the rookies would do well enough to stay as everyday players, one would need more work and possibly be a platoon player until he could play every day or just be a platoon player, and one probably wouldn’t make it. It’s a zero risk move because the Yanks could always sign players for 2012.

    Bottom line is the Yanks won the World Series with A-Rod, Teixiera, and Posada, and without Granderson.

    I would rather see 2011 be a year the Yanks don’t make the postseason and rebuild than see A-Rod and Teixiera stinking it up to being medicore in their late thirties, another year of Posada behind the plate, and Granderson being a shadow of his days with Detroit, eso. if the Yanks win it all this year.

    Yanks repeat as champs = More than enough credit with the fans to rebuild in 2011.

  67. timlaw June 13th, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    So Yoda I guess you dont feel saying a person has low standards to be name calling huh?
