Game Thread (NYY vs CLE): April 14, 2024


I have a baseball game this morning. I'm not sure I'll be back before the start of the game.

I'm back. We lost. I pitched one inning out of the pen. Gave up two unearned runs. We lost 10--0. I'll start next week.

The lineups:




Apr 15

that last double play, wherein the catcher tagged out a runner trying to score

and THEN

threw to 1B for the force-out

happens only because Verdugo dogged it instead of running hard

Noticing that the Cleveland Guardians logo looks like someone throwing a splitter.

You have to be kidding me.

This team invents ways to hit into double plays.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
