Game Thread: New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals 5/25

Memorial Day baseball between the New York Yankees and the Kansas City Royals is about to jump off. No one does these ceremonies like the New York Yankees and between the Bernie Williams ceremony of last night and this Memorial Day pre-game ceremony the Yankees have done it once again. Now that the ceremonies are over it's time for the game with Nathan Eovaldi and Jeremy Guthrie facing off this afternoon in the Bronx. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, ESPN and MLB TV. 

You only have two more shots to see the Yankees live in the Bronx before the team heads out West to face off with the Oakland Athletics in a four game set inside the Oakland Coliseum. Get your Yankees tickets now while you still can by clicking the Yankees Tickets link at the top of the blog. If you can't make it out to see the team live then join us on Twitter (@GreedyStripes) and/or the comments section of the site to interact with us during the game. 

Will we see Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Eovaldi this afternoon? I'm hoping for Mr. Eovaldi, Go Yankees!!

  1. The Charge of the Light Brigade...( Substitute the word 'Yankees'...for Brigade )
    By Lord Alfred Tennyson...on Dec 9th..1854.
    ( The first, fifth, and sixth verse')

    Half a league, half a league,
    Half a league onward,
    All in the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.
    "Forward, the Light Brigade!
    "Charge for the guns!" he said:
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.

    Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon behind them
    Volley'd and thunder'd;
    Storm'd at with shot and shell,
    While horse and hero fell,
    They that had fought so well
    Came thro' the jaws of Death
    Back from the mouth of Hell,
    All that was left of them,
    Left of six hundred.

    When can their glory fade?
    O the wild charge they made!
    All the world wondered.
    Honor the charge they made,
    Honor the Light Brigade,
    Noble six hundred.

    Copied from Poems of Alfred Tennyson,
    J. E. Tilton and Company, Boston, 1870

    A strategic blunder by the English Army, resulting in the destruction of a fine
    mounted military force.
    I compare what happened in 1854, to what I see on the field today.

    No disrespect to those fine Light Horseman.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
