Dodgers fans took over Yankee Stadium last night

4 Comments

Yankees fans in the right field bleachers usually do a “roll call” of the Yankees’ lineup. They chant the Yankees players names, the player gives a hat tip or a wave or something and then they move on.

Last night in the Bronx, however, it was the visiting club’s fans who performed a roll call. One louder than the one performed by the home team. And they unfurled that big Dodgers flag seen above as well:

 

The Dodgers have not played in Yankee Stadium very much. Must either be a tour group or the children and grandchildren of old Brooklyn people who inherited the Dodgers fandom via osmosis or something.

They went home — or to their hotels — happy. Dodgers beat the Yankees handily.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Tigers have signed Francisco Liriano to a one-year, $4 million contract.

Liriano split time between the Blue Jays and Astros last year, putting up a 5.66 ERA in 38 games, 18 of which were starts, striking out 85 and walking 53 in 97 innings. He pitched two-thirds on an inning in the World Series, but overall it was a pretty substandard season. But hey, those innings ain’t gonna eat themselves, and Liriano will eat some in Detroit.

Not to speak ill of him: he is almost certainly the second best Francisco Li- player in the division.
