• Salty Buggah

    fuckin Encarnacion!!!

    Alex had a lot of bad luck with BABIP this year.

    And good timing for the thread

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Not including tonight, he’s at .261.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    I like Rick Porcello even more now.

    • http://soxandpinstripes.com Angelo

      That reminds of the fact that Porcello was drafted I believe one pick before the Yankees had a shot at drafting him. I was heartbroken when the Tigers got him. Everyone thought the Yankees would sign him because of his price tag.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        I think the Sox picked between the Tigers and the Yanks and there’s no way they wouldn’t have picked him. A friend of mine is a Tigers fan and he got a very profanity laden phone call after the Tigers drafted Porcello.

        • Accent Shallow

          http://www.mlb.com/mlb/events/draft/y2007/drafttracker.jsp

          Giants and Twins picked between the Yanks/Tigers.

          • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

            Oh snap. Damn, now I’m even more angry.

        • http://soxandpinstripes.com Angelo

          I wasnt sure. Your probably right. I think it was something like this:

          Detroit 28th pick
          Redsox 29th pick
          Yankees 30th pick

          • http://soxandpinstripes.com Angelo

            Well you guys got it right, i wasnt sure.

          • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

            Sox didn’t have a first rounder that year, gave it up when they signed Lugo.

            • Drew

              FAIL haha

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

        Three picks.

        • http://soxandpinstripes.com Angelo

          Thanks Mike

  • Drew

    Oh Gus. Did Youkilis really “throw Porcello to the ground?” Did you even watch it?

    • Zack

      thats what the AP story claimed: “…throwing his helmet at Detroit pitcher Rick Porcello and tackling him…”

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      More like the other way around. Plus, Youk threw his helmet at him just before he reached him, which is such a girly move I don’t even know where to begin.

    • Randy A.

      I hate Youkilis, but atleast he took his protective equipment off before getting in a fight…unlike Varitek circa 2004.

      • Klemy

        He only took it off to use as a weapon though. lol

  • Dela G

    great inning there….

    lets hope for more good ones

  • EB

    Typical Pukilis, picks on a kid. Id like to see him charge Bruney or CC.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Just one of those games- Tex thrown out at the plate, Damon’s ball going over the wall, two very good defensive plays by subpar defenders, home run hitting the foul pole. Hopefully they put something together.

    • Salty Buggah

      Yea, and yesterday was too as we lost due to an error. Hopefully we score soon.

  • Drew

    heh, Ransom with a homer and a double. SWB winning 9-0 with Russ Ortiz pitching.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Ernie Harwell. Hands down.

  • Tony

    YAY, ANOTHER 0.1 INNING HUGHES APPEARANCE!!!!!!!!!1!!1!1!11!1!

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      ?

      That’s Robertson.

    • Drew

      That’s what you get for listening to Kay!!!!!!!!!!!111!!!!1!!

    • Tony

      I take no responsibility for that

  • pat

    Hughes is the most elite 1 batter reliever in the majors right now.

    • pat

      Snap.. it’s D-RObb

  • Accent Shallow

    Phil Hughes: ROOGY

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      So is Robertson!

    • Accent Shallow

      Don’t I feel dumb.

      • pat

        Man that ball got outta here in a hurry. I mean anything travels that far oughta have a damn stewardess on it, don’t you think?

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Wow, Hughes looks a lot like Dave Robertson these days.

    • A.D.

      ietc

    • Accent Shallow

      Someone (Flaherty? Kay?) was saying that they’re similar pitchers. No, not so much . . .

      • Pasqua

        I think it was Tim McCarver on Saturday’s game. So that explains the vapidness.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Huh, Phil Hughes shrunk a few inches.

    • Riddering

      I first read this as “Huh, Phil Hughes shrunk a few innings.”

      Both work for me.

  • Riddering

    Hughes in for his obligatory .1 inning.

    • Riddering

      Damn, Hughes lost all his beautiful curls…

      Oh, wait.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    I love David Robertson, but I hate Sweet Home Alabama .

    • Accent Shallow

      Man can’t help where he’s born.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Yeah, dumb hick song that was played out around 30 years ago.

  • Jersey

    I assume Hughes comes and stays in for the 9th, assuming it remains a non-save situation, right?

    • Jersey

      Oh. Heh.

  • Tony

    Let’s see if we can get Hughes in for 0.1 after Robertson throws 0.

  • A.D.

    Gaudin can now throw a lights out cutter

  • Drew

    A-Rod’s arm is the sickest.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    Lets get a few runs then see the greatest close it out.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Yeah!! Swisher for the 9th!!!

    • Bob Stone

      Nah – That would be too easy. Let’s wait for the walk off win.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Jesse Carlson is a fuckin’ toothpick!

  • Jersey

    Six outs for two runs. Doable.

    • trueblue

      screw 6 outs!!!!!!!

  • Drew

    Whenever I see Carlson pitch I think of Clippard.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Nah, Archie is much cooler than Carlson. (My friends and I think Clippard would be the perfect Archie in a movie)

  • Jersey

    Sizemore’s OPS is still at .750. What a shite year he’s having.

    • Accent Shallow

      He’s playing hurt.

      • Jersey

        Which explains the shite year.

  • JSquared

    No Jeffrey Maier this time. Our new Stadium is the new 10th man!!

    • Drew

      Cito. heh

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    I’m starting to subscribe to Francesa’s theory about pulling relievers after they give up a HR. We’ve now seen that twice in the past few days. Once with Bard, now again tonight.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Oh right, Cano and Hairston yesterday. That’s another one.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Cuz they’re pitching against THe MFing YankeeES!

    • pat

      I’m starting to subscribe to Francesa’s theory

      1)STOP.

      2)BANG HEAD AGAINST MONITOR.

      3)IF THOUGHTS PERSIST REPEAT STEP 2

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        Hahahahaha!

        You hear him today? Someone asked him what he thought of ‘Jason Hirsh, the guy from the Rockies’ and he thought it was a crank call. He never heard of the guy.

        • Zack

          What about his offer of Phil Hughes and Austin Jackson to the Pirates for Nate McLouth this offseason? Unless you’re an All Star player he really has no clue who you are

          • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

            He’s traded Phil Hughes 4 times already, which was a bad idea the first time.

            • Zack

              and he doesnt have the mentality to be in the bullpen either.

              • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

                ANDY PETTITTE IS A STAHTIN PITCHAH!!!

    • Zack

      I agree to a certain point. He also said he doesnt care if its Mariano, pull him too if he gives up a HR. So im a 2-0 game if Mo gives up a solo shot you’re going to pull him?
      Plus its impossible for another pitcher to come in that quick and be ready.

  • DougPinstripesForever

    if they call this back… I’m going make Joe West run a lap around

    the Stadium.

    • unclestevie

      he’ll never make it

      • Bob Stone

        LOL- That’s the idea.

    • unclestevie

      your threat worked

      • DougPinstripesForever

        Thank Mo, it did :)

  • unclestevie

    they better not change this call

  • Chef

    Nice grab by that fat bastard…

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      I thought a Fat Bastard would be a Chef’s best friend.

    • unclestevie

      i love that fat bastard ….both of them

  • Salty Buggah

    Fuck Dogs, HRs are the Yanks offense’s best friend.

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      I read that as saying “fuck dogs” and homeruns are BOTH the Yanks offense’s best friends

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Michael Vick

      YEAH!! YOU TELL EM BUGGAH MAN!!

  • JSquared

    GET SOME, FAT BOY JOE WEST!!

  • Drew

    Joe West FTW

  • Dela G

    thanks umps!

  • toad

    Gee. Do we have anybody in the bullpen who we can trust to hold a one-run lead?

    • Accent Shallow

      His name rhymes with Splariano Splivera

      • Pasqua

        One of my favorite Italian Renaissance painters.

        • Accent Shallow

          Ha ha.

      • ShuutoHeat

        Wait wait! I know the answer!!! I know the answer…
        it’s… Chad Gaudin!
        ….
        … DOH!

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Nah, they banned amphetamines.

  • BigBlueAL

    That fan is no Jeffrey Maier. lol

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    So, seriously, where you at, Lanny?

    • Salty Buggah

      Drinking his Diet Coke

    • DougPinstripesForever

      He is having his weekly dance lession from the “injured”

      Jose Reyes in Queens loft, I do believe.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Serious question … if they decide that ball wasn’t a homer, what’s the call? Double? Out?

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Fan interference = out.

      • Dela G

        i thought it was a double?

      • DreDog

        Didn’t the ump say that he would have ruled Jeter’s Jeff Maier HR a ground rule double?

      • DougPinstripesForever

        Now, that would be a serious bummer, dude :(

    • Drew

      Well if it was heading for INglett’s glove and the fan interfered I guess they call an out.
      I know what you mean though. Do the umps take into consideration the runner, the angle of the ball, where it would hit on the wall? That’s a lot of shit to have an ump guess. They do a shat enough job calling balls and strikes and tags.

    • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

      It’s got to be a double. Guy missed the ball.

  • Pasqua

    Has a call ever been overturned since they instituted the replay? I know all the Yanks’ calls have stood, but I can’t remember hearing about others.

    • JSquared

      yeah, Ryan Braun reversed just a week ago, turned it into a triple.

      • Pasqua

        Cool. Thanks. Was the ruling interference, or that a ball hadn’t cleared the fence?

        • JSquared

          it hit under the yellow line.

    • Stadium Garlic Fries

      few..i don’t have the exact details but I remember at least 2-3

  • JSquared

    Pinch Run Hairston!!

  • DougPinstripesForever

    And the floodgates are about to open…..

      But…Cashman doesn’t know how to build a bench!

    • DougPinstripesForever

      its about time we did some running on this team and Barajas.

      • Zack

        Barajas has 32% CS this year, 33% for career

  • JSquared

    Good Call on the steal.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Nice little day for Melky. Two ribbies and a steal.

  • Drew

    Haha Melky sooooo runs like a gremlin. Love it.

    • ShuutoHeat

      He looks a bit like Gizmo.

      • Drew

        lmao

  • DougPinstripesForever

    Oh, you guys think Jeter should charge the mound? Of course not, that’s only for cowards with a porn goatee ;)

    • BigBlueAL

      Chad Curtis laughs at the thought of Jeter charging the mound.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    When was the last time Leiter added anything constructive to the discussion?

    • JSquared

      Everytime he doesn’t talk.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Still better than Flaherty and O’Neill for the most part. I can has Kenny and Bob Lorenz?

      • Drew

        Dude I really think O’Neill would be good if he wasn’t constantly egged on by Kay.

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          Eh, if he’s not doing a (very) mini-break down of a hitter, he’s not all that great. I do agree, though, that if Kay didn’t try to make him talk about food every damn time…

          • Klemy

            Or Paul talking about Kay’s enormous head…well, I’ll give him that. It’s fucking huge.

    • Drew

      Eh, he adds a lot as a pitcher and all that ish, IMO. I like Leiter.

    • Accent Shallow

      He definitely adds insight when it comes to the mechanics of pitching, pitch types, selection, grips, etc.

    • Pasqua

      Plus, Leiter’s cranky, which makes me hysterical for some reason. Always sounds like he’s got somewhere else to be. He’s actually got some good insights re: pitching.

      • Klemy

        I like Leiter, he doesn’t rub everyone’s nuts like Cone does.

      • Klemy

        Bah sorry, bad nesting.

  • Salty Buggah

    The fans are back at the Stadium and I love it!

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Oooooof, nice pitch.

  • BigBlueAL

    Im assuming Downs is on the DL right??? Just realized he hasnt pitched in this series so far.

    • JSquared

      yup.

    • JSquared

      yup.

      • BigBlueAL

        Figured that. Thanks.

    • Zack

      yeah that toe problem came back

      • pat

        Goddamn Camel toe.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    I still don’t get why a pitcher gets thrown out because a big stupid Cro Magnon is charging him and he defends himself.

  • DougPinstripesForever

    Good Job Johnny, now its enter Sandman time!!

    • DougPinstripesForever

      Also thank you to Mr. Mike Axisa for the luckier 3rd thread! We

      needed that extra luck to push Jorgie’s Hr out of the park ;)

  • JSquared

    Its!!….. Mo-Time!!

  • Dela G

    damn this baserunning today

    jesus christ!

    haha sorry, but its the truth

  • Salty Buggah

    DAMON tacks on!

  • Cokie

    I’m just thinking, Johnny D was a pretty damn good pickup by Cash. I’ll miss him next year.

    • JSquared

      Johnny and Matsui will come cheap, i wouldn’t be surprised to see one of them back.

      • DougPinstripesForever

        Johnny will be back, unfortunately Hideki won’t be. I want

        them both back, personally. Seriously, how can you replace

        both of them?

        • Accent Shallow

          How confident are we that Matsui’s knees hold off on exploding for one more year?

          • DougPinstripesForever

            He is worth the risk because the man knows how to hit in the clutch as good as anybody.

            • Drew

              I’d rather Damon than Matsui.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Nicely done.

    This team is so good, they can just wait till the end of the game to score their runs, just for ratings purposes. The YES Network encourages them to do so.

  • Zack

    what makes this even better? Sox are in a rain delay, so they’re in the clubhouse watching Yankees come back

    • ShuutoHeat

      What makes it even better is the Sux lose their momentum and lose thanks to the rain delay!

  • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

    Mo’s WHIP is silly.

    Wow, that was a shot. Mo knew it, too.

  • Drew

    WTF is that shit? lol

  • BigBlueAL

    I wanna thank Damon for getting caught in that rundown assuring a save for my fantasy team from Mo.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Yanks do that all the time to make sure the run scores.

  • Accent Shallow

    If you’re gonna give up a jack, might as well do it in a three run game with no one on base.

  • JSquared

    fuck.

  • Dela G

    HOLY CRAP!!!

    He gave up a BOMB!

  • Ivan

    Unexpected but no biggie.

  • Salty Buggah

    I’ll take the blame for that HR. I was telling my friend that even if Edwin HRs there, we will probably win. And he did homer, so hopefully we win too.

    • DougPinstripesForever

      we forgive you, Salty.

    • ShuutoHeat

      *throws half eaten donut at Salty*

  • DougPinstripesForever

    Damn, I hope a bad stretch isn’t coming for Mo but I know we may

    have to endure another one.

    • unclestevie

      dont talk like that….please

  • Dela G

  • BigBlueAL

    WTF is Arod guarding the line with nobody on and a 2 run lead????

  • A.D.

    Mo making it a bit more interesting lately than one would like

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Mo loves to play…

    I never ever find it amusing. I was at a Sux game when he loaded the damn bases before striking out the next hitter and then inducing a double play to win the game.

    Not funny Mo.

  • Salty Buggah

    oh boy, cmon Mo.

  • unclestevie

    WTF? come on Mo

  • JSquared

    GET SOME!!!

  • BigBlueAL

      Are you serious?

      • EB

        ’07 walkoff vs Oakland??? I was there

        • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

          And?

      • BigBlueAL

        Im sure he is referring to his walk-off HR vs Mo in 2007.

  • JSquared

    GET SOME!!!!!

  • Tony

    Sit down.

  • unclestevie

    WHY DO WE DOUBT HIM ?

    • Drew

      “WE” don’t

    Yay Mo! Yay win!

  • toad

    How does Encarnacion hit a HR against Mo?

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      Blind squirrel, nut, etc

  • LiveFromNewYork

    OH MY MO

  • JSquared

    Scutaro: I’m not swinging at ball 1, I’m Not swinging at ball 2, i’m not swinging at ball 3, I’m swinging at ball 4. Thanks dummy.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      ietc

  • BigBlueAL

    Mo is GOD.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Ball 4, and as always Posada keeps calling the pitch that he hasn’t thrown for a strike yet.

    It worked this time, but that’s what drives me nuts about Posada.

  • Riddering

    Mo doesn’t sweat a full count, bitches.

    YANKEES WIN, THE YANKEES WIN. And they didn’t beat up any kids to do it!

    • LiveFromNewYork

      Mo says I want to pitch so chill

  • Salty Buggah

    WIN!

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Oooooohhh goodie!

    I GOTTA stay up for the Russ Salzberg game wrap!

    • LiveFromNewYork

      I hate Russ.
      YES does a full post-game show after an ESPN game but not a MY9 game?

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        Yeah, you know they want to wrap up Yanks-Sox, but I guess a Tuesday game against the BJs doesn’t make the cut.

  • DreDog

    FYI – Mitch Williams just clowned Kevin Douchelis on MLB. He said a bunch of stuff that included: “then he throws his helmut and embarasses his entire family tree”

    • JSquared

      HaHa, Youkilis is a bum.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Nice.

      I’m surprised he didn’t pull a Ruth Buzzie and hit him with his purse.

      • ShuutoHeat

        He might have faired better if he did have his purse on hand. Not to mention matching heels and a dress. Preferably the one he wore to sleep when he got home after the Yankees swept them.

        • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

          Leave the poor guy alone. He’s always wanted to have a Cinderella season, so you have to have a matching dress.

          • Klemy

            IETC

    • Dela G

      the funny part is that he was right in front of porcello

      and still couldnt hit him with the helmet

      • DougPinstripesForever

        Mitch & the MLB network (to a lesser extent), rocks! Screw

        BBTN & NESPN

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Wow, I’m actually agreeing with Mitch Williams. First I say good things about Josh Towers this morning (Rich!) and now I agree with Mitch Williams? What a day…

  • Drew

    Dude on baseball tonight, Berthiaume, just said Mo struck out Scutaro with a slider. Has he ever seen Mariano Rivera pitch?

    • JSquared

      He doesn’t know what baseball is. Just reads the prompter.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        I’m Steve Berthuiame?

        • JSquared

          No, I’m Steve Berthiaume…

          No, You’re John Kruk…

          Oh, let me check. Yeah, i still only have one nut, i am John Kruk. damnit.

          • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

            Cancer “humor” = not funny.

            • JSquared

              When it’s about Kruk, its Money.

            • thurdonpaul

              i will second that, cancer humor is not funny, it is a horrible fuckin disease

        • GG

          And I’m Steve Berthuiame. Go f–k yourself, San Diego.

        • DougPinstripesForever

          Steve Berthuiame is the most wretched & biased jerk on BBTN.

        • putt

          go fuck yourself, bristol.

          • putt

            man, I was slow with that one…my bad.

          • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

            Except for Lake Compounce. That place rocks.

  • Accent Shallow

    Good call on the new thread.

  • Jimmy

    Yay they won!

    The funny thing about the whole Porcello-Youk thing was that its slowly turning the nation against the Sox. Suddenly they are the underdogs anymore.

    • Jersey

      They’re already widely hated, and too delusional to appreciate it. They’re like the modern-day GOP.

      • DougPinstripesForever

        Really, Jersey? The Roid Sux still have tremendous power & influence in every major basball circle and the GOP doesn’t
        have any. So, how are they alike?

        And to be fair no sports team is as corrupt and cruel as either political party.

        • Jersey

          Don’t want to turn this into a thing, but in American politics the minority party still has major influence. The system is designed that way. Power changes are only marginal.

          Also, not sure how much more influential the Sox are than anyone else, honestly. They have their True Believers, sure…and then everybody else. Most of whom cannot stand them.

          Anyway, just a metaphor.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Watching the Mets-D-Backs right now.

    That’s quite a birthmark that Ryan Roberts has.

    • DougPinstripesForever

      Nothing is as extraordinary nor frightening in the current MLB world as the Mole that lives on the side Beltran’s neck. Am I right?

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        Yeah, I was referring to Roberts’ neck tattoo. Creepy looking thing in a weird spot.

  • Salty Buggah

    Whoever that was wondering, a HR just got overturned in the Cubs-Phils game. It was an obvious foul but somehow the umpire called it HR.

    • Pasqua

      That was me, and I just saw that highlight. Weird. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • Drew

    I’m curious as to BBTN’s stance on the Youk Porcello thing. Was that the “right way” to hit a batter and attack a pitcher?

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      David Ortiz said Youk did nothing wrong, so I believe him.

      • JSquared

        Ortiz lies about everything, what’s one more gonna do to him.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Haha, IETC.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Awesome desert sunset shot on SNY.

      /Ansel Adams’d

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        Touche.

  • Salty Buggah

    another blown save for Lidge

  • Drew

    heh, BBTN: 4 mentions of Ellsbury’s catch, 1 mention of the brawl. I guess I should’ve guessed that.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Seriously? That’s so fucking weak.

      • danny

        mlb network is soooooo much better.

    • Pasqua

      But, thankfully, MLB Network continues to eviscerate Youkilis. Magrane just said, “And now Youkilis can be proud that he just got schooled by a 20 year old kid.”

      • Drew

        haha I heard that. “Youkilis got schooled by a 20 year old kid in the GrecoRoman throw.” or something along those lines. It was pretty funny.

  • danny

    wow youkilis is a fucking punk and got thrown down by a skinny 20 year old, i hope his ass gets suspended.

    • Pasqua

      He’s gonna get suspended big time. Way to help the team, Youk.

      • Zack

        He got Porcello out of the game in the 2nd inning, so he did help them today- which is pretty lame. there should be some kind of punishment for the team whose player attacks the mound.

    • The Lodge

      What happened? I am just getting home from the game in da Bronx.

  • Drew

    I know it’s overkill at this point but still, ESPN doesn’t even have the “brawl” under the “headlines” tag on their homepage???

    COME ON!!!!
    /Mccarver’d

  • Luthien

    Would be really cool if someone could fill me in on what happened with Youk. From the looks of it, sounds like there was a brawl or something. Anyone got video?

  • wilcymoore

    Youkilis = human sweat box.

  • V

    Yup, MLB Network gets all the air play in this household from now on. No more BBTN.
