Pitching: A.J. Burnett RHP vs. Vincente Padilla RHP
...back with updates from the game...
Update 7:15: Damn... the homeplate umpire tonight has a rocket arm.
Update 7:26: A-Rod is sooo clutch popping up to the first baseman with runners on the corners and one out there... sooo clutch.
Update 7:39: Burnett has an explosive fastball tonight... and so does the homeplate umpire...
Update 7:45: Posada is a bum... should be 2nd and 3rd with no outs... instead.... runner on 2nd... 1 out... stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid.
Update 7:50: 1-0 Yankees on a RBI single to right by Brett Gardner.
Update 7:54: Vincente Padilla is a freaky looking dude.
Update 7:56: 2-0 Yankees after Padilla balked... you can thank Gardner for that one.
Update 8:44: A-Rod almost set some kind of record... if it wasn't for Mark Teixeira going in hard... that would've been a double play: EIGHT MEN LEFT ON BASE IN THE FIRST 4 INNINGS.... that would have been some kind of fucking record alright.
...instead he has left 7 men on base through the first 4 innings...
Update 8:47: oh... and it's 5-3 Yankees.
Update 8:50: here's a picture from Vinny Milano (bald vinny)...
Update 8:52: for those of you who don't know who bald vinny is... he's the leader of the bleacher creatures at Yankee Stadium... and if you're really out of it... they're the people who do the roll call before the game... and if you're a fucking idiot... that's when you chant every player's name....
...meanwhile, it's 9-3 Yankees as Hideki Matsui just hit a 3 run homerun.
Update 9:00: ahhhh fastball right at Cruz's head by Burnett... that's how you do it. Both benches warned.... i love this game.
...then you come back and strike him out...well played A.J., well played.
Update 9:17: hey A-Rod is up... and the bases are not full of Yankees... THANK GOD.
Update 9:21: Warner Madrigal looks eerily like a frog...
...it's 12-3 Yankees now after Jorge Posada tagged his ass for a 3 run homer.
Update 9:42: Maybe the Rangers should sign Doug Eddings to pitch the rest of this game... he's got a pretty good arm.
Update 9:54: Ok... that's enough from me for tonight... Yankees leading 12-3 in the top of the 8th.
