Judge-ment Day: the FKing Yankees come to Oakland 341

Scapegoat – thy name is Curt Young.
I’d ask Trevor to not let the door hit him in the ass on the way out, but only because I want him to hold it open for some of our other “veterans” who we can only hope are next.
Apparently, Aaron Judge is too tall for the strike zone. Keep the ball down, guys.

        The former I guess; I’m in Birds/Nats territory.

        I guess I stupidly assumed without thinking that a legitimate subscription-paying local could somehow stream games regardless of their actual temproary location.

          I was curious about that. Good to have the answer even if at your expense.

          It may not be the case for all devices. I was able to watch a Warriors CSN game on either on my laptop or phone app while in Los Angeles.

      So long as he’s a pure backup, sure, he’s fine as the utility IF for a non-contending team. It’s all the starts and ABs that piss me off. Hell, for that matter I’d be fine with him being the new pitching coach.

    So, any insight on why Curt Young got the boot? Until today I had him pegged as one of the organization’s favorites, approaching unfireable in that Bob Geren kinda way.

      Young pitchers weren’t progressing, is what Forst said.

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Jun 15,2017 8:13 pm || Up

        Also that they needed to hear “a new voice”

        • Bed Bed Jun 15,2017 8:16 pm || Up

          I think someone had to go and Curt Young drew the short straw. If a year from now this team is still awful it’s going to be time for someone in the front office to draw one of those short straws.

          But seriously, folks...
          • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Jun 15,2017 8:20 pm || Up

            I suppose when the organization’s one and only strategy for contending is to develop young cheap pitching, and too many of them turn out to suck, well, they ain’t firing Billy.

            • Bed Bed Jun 15,2017 8:22 pm || Up

              I imagine the only way Beane goes is new ownership. As far as Curt Young, he had a long run, I know he only lasted the one season in Boston but I imagine he’ll get another look as a pitching coach somewhere.

      If they got the Rays to take on ~$1 million of the money due Plouffe, as Slusser’s tweet implies, it’s an awesome deal from the budgetary point of view. PTBNL is probably late season AA roster fill as Nashville’s roster goes to Oakland and Midland’s goes to Nashville.

          Yes, Phil sang that one. I was not a “Let Phil Sing” guy. As to Bob, Watchtower was excellent and Masterpiece was good, but I was indifferent to his other first set Dylan covers and I found his Desolation Row monotonous.

          Jerry’s “Knockin on Heaven’s Door” was right up there with “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue”, and separately the Jerry Garcia Band did several good ones including an outstanding “Tangled Up in Blue”. The full band swapped verses on “Maggie’s Farm” and that was always great fun.

Crowded atop the leaderboard, headed by a left-hander named Brian–no lefties and no Brians have ever won the Open. I’m still betting on Rickie Fowler though. Unusual to have this many guys way under par at a US Open, but I’ll take it. Also that par 3 9th hole is delightfully fiendish.

    Didn’t get to watch it, but I’m glad that Andre Ward was able to definitively beat Kovalev in their rematch. Many including me thought Ward didn’t deserve his decision victory in the first meeting.

        We had been vacationing in Utah for the last week and returned to a 90-degree home. Turning on our AC apparently pushed the grid to its limit, as we lost power and sweated it out until 11 at night.

                Sweden, midsummer, sunset around midnight plus the US-Europe jet lag. I’m sure PTBNL can top this, but did he drag a toddler with him?

                  To Norway and back in 48 hours was a doozy.

                  San Francisco to Crete on 3 flights over 24 hours with a toddler was less than fun.

                  And Australia is always bizarre for the missing/double day … this fall the outbound flight will skip our wedding anniversary.

    First two at-bats for Tampa Bay, as their DH (!!!) tonight:

    2nd: Plouffe grounded out to pitcher, Morrison to third, Beckham to second.

    4th: Plouffe grounded into double play, third to second to first, Beckham out at second.
