    Colabello on that strike three gave a good impression of someone who never saw a breaking pitch before.

    I count 16 TVs in this sports bar in Manhattan: 15 are tuned to the World Cup match, one to the Yanks- Twins. I don't hate soccer, but enough already.

    Twins are pecking away - 6-4 now. Too bad we only got to face Whitley for three innings; guess we Chase'd him.

    In other news, the Yankees hats are dumb looking.

    They are dumb looking. I have to go cook for too many people. Have a great 4th, and for Gawds sake lets win this.

    While I have a pocket of internet... Let's do this. ChiTown will post lineups here.

    YANKEES:
    SP, Whitley

    Gardner LF
    Roberts 2B
    Ellsbury CF
    Teixiera 1B
    Beltran DH
    Suzuki RF
    Cervelli C
    Johnson 3B
    Ryan SS

    TWINS:
    SP, Gibson

    Dozier 2B
    Suzuki C
    Parmelee LF
    Morales 1B
    Arcia RF
    Plouffe 3B
    Colabello DH
    Escobar SS
    Fuld CF

    ---------------------------------------

    Things to think about:

    1. Hotels -- In the year 2014... I'm not sure how a hotel can get away with not having fantastic Wi-Fi in all rooms. But the Hotel I'm staying at struggles to load anything. However the pillows look arranged real nice when we walked in the room... All fluffy and clean. It's a good thing since I might as well just go to sleep with a circle spinning around and around on my I-Pad not loading anything. I am standing next to the door posting since my page happened to load in this spot and this spot only. If I walk a foot in either direction... It goes back to spinning. Anyway... It's 2014... Internet service in hotels should be more important than fluffy pillows.

    2. Phil Hughes -- The Ol' Crooked number got him again yesterday. It's been his only bugaboo all year... The occasional big inning. He was out dueling Tanaka for 4 innings and then came the 5th.

    3. Kyle Gibson -- Hughes and Gibson have become our 1-2 Punch... It's more like a 1-2 slapping because our hitters haven't been helping. Hughes missed with his slap yesterday but not to fear... Kyle Gibson is here.

    4. New Yorkers -- New Yorkers sound different than Minnesotans do. And when a New Yorker is watching a game at Target Field in the middle of Minnesotans. When Beltran homers... They stand up and yell at all of us. They taunt us all... They say... Take that... And they point their fingers... They even tell us to F you... I was laughing... Because. I knew that the entire section could take that guy and was thinking about it.

    5. The 4th of July -- It was July 4th 1776... America the Beautiful with Spacious Skies declared its independence from England. I'm told it was an important time in our history. Without this Declaration of Independence... In theory we would still be dependent. At some point in time my kids will declare independence... And only come over for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm sure they will save the date it happens and shoot off fireworks as well. Yelling Happy 12th of May or whenever. I was 18 when I declared my independence and moved to New Mexico... I was 19 when I came back home declaring a false start on my earlier Declaration of Independence. Eventually... I did it... I became fully independent and then I got married!!! Marriage is a lot like taxation without representation. Anyway... Happy Birthday America!!!
    Another great setup, especially the final sentence.

    I would never go back to a hotel that has bad internet. They would be dead to me.

    Parmelee up with a man on second, down by two. This may be our best chance the rest of the way.

    This one has been especially painful to watch. I even checked the standings to see where the Twins would be in the draft order if the season ended today. The best spin that I can put on this is that if they don't start playing a lot better, they might move up to #3 or #4.

    OK, we have anther chance. And the Arcia at bat was better than the strikeout that I expected.

    A hitter ... went against ... the shift ... I think ... my heart ... stopped.

    No, I'm okay.

    The double steal was a great call.
