Game 98: Time to make a move

Melky walks off
Stale memories of an old Stadium

Including today, 11 of the Yanks next 14 games are at home, the lone exception being a three game set in Fenway next weekend. The wins don’t have to be textbook, they all count the same.

Some stats for you:

  • Since June 14th, Robinson Cano is hitting .350-.373-.534 with a grand total of six strikeouts in 103 at-bats. The Annual Robinson Cano Second Half Surge is officially underway.
  • Hat tip to PeteAbe on this one: Edwar Ramirez hasn’t allowed a hit in his last 9 IP, striking out 14 in the process. Kyle Farnsworth is 1 inning away from his own hidden no-no. Crazy.
  • Since moving to the rotation on June 3rd, Joba Chamberlain‘s 2.64 ERA is the 15th best amongst starters in all of baseball. It’s the 7th best mark in the AL. His 10.20 Kper9 is 4th best in all the land. Could the transition have gone any better?
  • When I post the game thread, the Yanks are 13-7, good for a .650 winning percentage. When Joe posts it, they’re 18-21, or a .492 winning percentage. Ben? 21-17, or a .553 win %. You’ll be seeing less of Joe and more of me in the coming weeks.

1. Jeter, SS
2. Abreu, RF
3. A-Rod, 3B
4. Giambi, DH
5. Cano, 2B
6. Betemit, 1B
7. Cabrera, CF
8. Molina, C
9. Gardner, LF

And on the bump, the grizzled vet, Andy Pettitte. He’ll be opposed by All-Star Justin Duchscherer, the guy with a .213 BABIP. I believe the term is “completely unsustainable.”

    Cano when going right is my second favorite hitter to watch (of course behind A-Rod). The guy has a nice, easy going and beautiful swing and generates a good amount power as well. Hopefully he can keep this, because he’s better than that, much better than that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      I agree. But honestly, has there ever been a prettier RHB swing than the one belonging to Albert Pujols?

      • Ivan

        How about manny’s

  • Brett

    Thanks Mike; NO MORE JOE!!! :-)

    • Joey

      Yea, I knew it was Joe all along!

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Andy goin’ right after them.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I think I have recognized the big difference between Kenny Singleton and Michael Kay. When Singleton makes a lame joke you react like if your Dad made a lame joke, not funny but its corniness just makes you chuckle. When Kay makes a lame joke you just get angry, like “Dude, shut the hell up”.

    I really love this booth of Singleton and David Cone.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      When Kay makes a lame joke you just get angry, like “Dude, shut the hell up”.

      And that is because of the way Kay acts like he knows everything, and/or continually beats the horse long after it’s dead.

  • JT

    WTF THEY NEED TO GET RID OF THIS F_HOLE NAMED MEACHEM!!!!!

  • Casper

    Oh, Bobby Meachem.

  • E-ROC

    Good job of running hard thru the bases, A-Rod.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Maybe he was just surprised as most that he was being waved home and never thought Meachem would send him seeing as how Ryan Sweeney charged the ball and has a fine arm.

      • JT

        As arod rounds third and sees Meachem waving him home, you could see the dead blank expression of “omg this ahole meachem is going to get me called out again!!!”

      • E-ROC

        Yeah, but A-Rod slowed rounding third then tried to turn it up when he saw what up the outfielder was doing.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Sweeney’s got quite the arm. Meachem should know this.

  • Yankee1010

    I eagerly await the day that Meachem is no longer the 3rd base coach. It’s beyond ridiculous now.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Ok, I’ll admit it, I am souring on Bobby Meachem as the third base coach. Wilson Betemit has had a fine series thus far, that was a bit too aggressive.

  • Jake H

    Bobby M needs to hold the guy up when it’s hit that hard. That ball was a 1 hopper to Sweeney and he didn’t have to move at all. That’s an easy out.

    • christopher

      how many times can this ass kill an inning by sending a guy into a defenite out. maybe he watches matsui and damon so much and thinks every outfielder throws that way.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    When Sweeney charged the ball I really think you can’t send A-Rod.

  • JT

    On a separate note… was anyone really on the same page as those idiots at WFAN who suggested trading cano one for one for freddy sanchez of pitts?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Well, Freddy Sanchez did win the batting title a few years back, so he’s clearly an excellent player fully capable of repeating that performance year after year. The fact that his -17.8 VORP & .565 OPS are both the second lowest totals on the planet in their respective categories is completely irrelevant. 2006 performances wins 2008 championships.

      This is another one that deserves this:

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        Classic.

    • murphy

      who said that on wfan? let me know so i can never tune into them ever

  • Yankee1010

    Honestly, what must Meachem do to get fired? Have multiple guys get hurt in home plate collisions?

    • Jersey

      Wave a guy home….and then stick out his foot in the basepath?

      • Yankee1010

        Sadly, that might be more effective. He might still be able to get back to 3rd. Now all he’s doing is getting guys thrown out at home by a mile.

  • http://www.overheardinnewyork.com NC Saint

    Bobby Meacham is an assclown. Cone’s ‘aggressive’ euphemism just doesn’t cut it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Andy looks amazing, hopefully we don’t waste this effort.

    • Yankee1010

      I’d say if Meachem only gives up 2 outs or less at home, there’s a chance.

  • Casper

    Never nice to call for someone to lose their job… But the most important aspect of Bobby Meachem’s job is deciding whether to send the runner from 3rd, and he clearly can’t make that decision. The Yankees need a new third-base coach.

    • Yankee1010

      I agree that it’s not easy to call for someone’s job. But the overwhelming evidence is there that Meachem is simply not able to be an even below average 3rd base coach. Plus, it’s only a matter of time before he gets someone hurt.

  • JT

    I heard some report on Baseball Tonight that the yankees have announced their interest in Jason Bay/Xavier Nady. Are those espn idiots just trying to stir up some noise. I’m not sold on Nady’s ability to reproduce anywhere near his current level. I wouldnt mind giving up good prospects for Bay but I do not want to even consider the aww-uninspiring Ajax.

    • Casper

      I’ve had some guy in a fantasy league trying to trade Nady to me for a couple of years and I couldn’t have been more dismissive of his attempts… But I’ve been thinking about him lately for the Yankees… I mean, here’s a guy who was a 2nd round draft pick, who’s always been relatively well-regarded, and has seemingly put it together, offensively, the last couple of years. And he’s 29 years old. Maybe this isn’t a terrible guy for the Yankees to target, depending on what the Bucs would expect back in return. You’re trading for the next few years of his production, not the last few. Seems like a solid player who is in the prime of his career. Nothing wrong with a guy who can go out and hit .280-.310 or so with 20 HRs from the right side of the plate.

      That being said, I have no idea what you’d offer in return for him. So never mind me.

    • A.D.

      I mean most of the league is interested in those players, but most reports say that the Pirates simply want too much for Nady

      • Casper

        I’m not too well-versed in what the Pirates are expecting, but I just read on the WWL’s “rumors” page that they want 2 prospects. Who knows… If a team leaks to the media that they want “x y and z” for a prospect it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what it’d take to get a deal done.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          If they could get it done for Ohlendorf and Melky, I’d bite. It’s highly unlikely that would be enough though.

          I would be much more willing to bulk up the package and send 3 players, say IPK, Ohlie, Melky to the Pirates for Bay. Bay is perfectly capable of playing CF once Damon/Matsui returns.

          Again, I don’t think that would be enough.

          • christopher

            Nady just looks too much to me like a guy having a career year.

            Bay on the other has a very good track record – i would do ipk,oledorf, and melky up.

            for me losing melky is addition by subtraction. he is a good arm on an otherwise useless player

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Outside of that one inning yesterday, (I think it was the fifth where the Yanks swung at the first and second pitch of the AB almost the whole inning against Sean Gallagher) the Yanks have had some great Plate Appearances all series.

  • Jersey

    Attaboy Melky.

    Does Dukeschererer really have an 85 mph fastball, or is that just Gameday messing with me?

    • mko

      I guess it’s true. But he’s only using a 2-seamer with a lot of movement, that’s always slower than a 4-seamer…

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    The Giants are starting to unload their vets, about 3 years too late:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/.....id=3497321

    • mko

      Cool, I read rumours about this trade yesterday and released Durham on my fantasy team. Tulowitzki is coming off the DL tomorrow, let’s hope he produces like he did last year…

    • Ivan

      Word. Plus, lets be honest, can we say Rickie Weeks is a bust? I mean, we have been waiting for this guy to breakout and he hasn’t (add on thathe sucks at second) what gives.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        I don’t think you can call him a bust yet, but the Gary Sheffield comparisons clearly aren’t going to come to fruition. You can’t teach that kind of bat speed, so hopefully he figures it out sooner rather than later.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Also, big time props to Doug Melvin and the Brewers. They’ve certainly announced that they’re going for it. Their fans must be stoked.

          • Casper

            I have a friend who’s a big Brewers fan. He doesn’t know how to react to all this, it’s completely foreign to him.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Andy Pettitte, strikeout machine.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    They Yankees only have to go 5-6 (including this game) to have their third straight winning month. Their only losing month was April (14-15).

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Shhh, don’t tell ESPN.

  • A.D.

    At least Gardner is working counts

  • A.D.

    Crushed on a line

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Least runs allowed, least runs scored? When did Brian Billick start managing the Oakland A’s? Zing!

  • Casper

    Just yelled at my tv: “Don’t send him!”

    • Casper

      Clarification: Comment above was re: Jeter going to third on Abreu’s single up the middle, not the sac fly to right.

  • JT

    haha phew!

  • A.D.

    “popped up” goes to medium right field

    • mko

      A-Rod does everything in bigger dimensions ;)

      • giselle

        hahah

  • JT

    I like how Jeter clipped his feet out from under him!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Adam Dunn just hit a game-tying Home Run. He is not a winning player. If David Eckstein were to have hit that homer (LoL, can’ type that with a serious face) then he would have gutted out an extra half run.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Did he hit it to Kentucky?

      A few years ago he hit a ball clear out of the stadium, it bounced off the sidewalk and landed on a piece of driftwood in the Ohio River, and it finally came to a stop in Kentucky.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        Not to Kentucky but he might have created a hole in the air at the GAB. It was a liner down the RF line.

    • Ivan

      Whil I am not a Adam Dunn fan, he can sure hit em far.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        7 of his last 8 hits have been homers.

    • christopher

      this “not a winning player” nonsense is going to make him the steal of this offseason – how many guys in basbeall who are capable of 50 homeruns and ae on-base machines are as underated as him.

      put in the phillies line-up and is he that different than ryan howard

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I think that is about as split second as you can get. Wow.

  • A.D.

    He may of left early, but the human eye could never determine that for a RF & a runner on 3rd

  • JT

    Didn’t Geren looked like a penguin running out there?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Hah, that’s what I thought. Danny DeVito in Batman style.

      • E-ROC

        I was thinking Happy Feet. I thought he was going to start tap-dancing on the infield.

  • Ivan

    Wow, walk a struggling Giambi, to get to a scorching hot Cano who’s the better hitter.

  • A.D.

    Must have figured Giambi would have worked a walk anyways, and just save the pitches

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Well forgot that idea. Got to love the better AB’s by Robbie.

      *That was a nice pitch on 3-2, can’t blame Cano for that.

      • A.D.

        Yeah threw up a tough 3-2 curveball on the corner (maybe slightly off), basically a perfect pitch, redic.

        So much nicer seeing Cano work it and get good swings

  • scott

    We need Garardi to pull a Lou Brown and make Gardner do push-ups everytime he hits the ball in the air…

    • A.D.

      that would be great

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Is it just me or did David Wright have one of the quietest 30/30 seasons last year ever? I mean main stream media wise, because everybody I read online was clamoring for him to win the award over Jimmy Rollins and Matt Holliday.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I thought Brandon Phillips’ was quieter.

      • JT

        Brandon Philips had a 30/30 year?

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Yes sir. 30 HR, 32 SB.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        I still don’t think Hanley Ramirez gets all the love he should. People are really starting to notice this year but it still doesn’t feel like enough. In 2007 he was two doubles and a homer away from a 30/50/50 season. That’s fucking insane!

  • Ivan

    Hey Jamal, would you make this trade if your Houston (NBA talk). McGrady for Chauncey Billups, Tayshaun Prince, and first round pick. That is an interesting trade. I think Detroit will do it, but I don’t know Houston.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      I think Detroit overvalues Tayshaun Prince, not sure they would do it especially with T0Mac’s injury history. I think Houston would do that in a heartbeat though. I still feel Yao Ming is way underrated, he could definitely lead that team when healthy to a second round berth by his lonesome.

  • batty

    While the Bonds thing probably won’t happen I’m curious – hypothetically would the Giants get extra picks from the Yanks?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      No, they didn’t offer him arbitration. Same deal with Piazza.

      • batty

        Ahhh – makes sense. Thanks!

      • Andy In Sunny Daytona Beach

        Wasn’t Piazza offered arbitration? I thought he was a type B free agent.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          You’re right, my bad.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        When we picked Phil Hughes, was that #23 pick from the Astros signing Andy Pettitte or Roger Clemens?

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Pettitte. Hughes & Jon Poterson for Pettitte, Jeff Marquez & Brett Smith for Boomer. They didn’t offer Clemens arbitration because they thought he was retiring.

          • Joe

            Is Brett Smith dead? He started well last year, tailed off at the end pretty badly and has been non-existent. Not even a mention of his still being in the system.

            • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

              DL with shoulder and elbow issues.

              • Joe

                Is he expected to pitch at all this year?

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona Beach

    Chip Caray makes me want to puncture my eardrums and pour hot sauce in.

  • christopher

    things are getting better but with it looking more and more like posada isnt going to be able to catch effectively they are going to need to get another bat in this line-up. when relegated to DH, posada isnt nearly the offensive force that he is when catching because the replacement they could put into that position would just about equal his offensive output.

    with gardner, molina, and melky in the line-up that is three easy outs making this line-up more like a meiocre NL line-up.

    there is a guy out there who can probably still play a decent LF and if posada cann catch DH and this line-up goes from mediocre to great. Enough with the distractions – AROD doesnt seem to distract the team much when he is cheating on his wife and was fine with the giambi fiasco

    the guy has a chip on his shoulder and something to prove. this team cannot trot out this line-up and expect to win. we are going to see far too many games with 15 or 21 baserunners left on.

    bite the bullet and sign bonds. his precense does nothing to damage the long term plan and he will be affordable. the move makes so much sense that i cannot even believe that anyone could be against it.

    if this wasnt yankee stadium’s final season which carries with it all the publicity and nostalgia would they really be so hesitant to sign bonds. i dont think so – i think management doesnt want to associate it with a steroid user so we will have to associate it with missing the playoffs or getting bounced out in the first round because the team cant score more than 2 runs a game

    • Joe

      Bonds does not play a decent left field, he barely has knees. It’s difficult to run when you don’t have knees.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    45:20-Strike:ball ratio for Andy Pettitte. Nice.

    • zs190

      This is against Oakland though, they make our sputtering offense look good.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I hope fans realize that Brett Gardner usually struggles when moving up to a new level.

    • A.D.

      Its a good situation for BG right now, since there isn’t pressure for playing time until Damon comes back, so he can take his normal lumps

  • A.D.

    More pushups for BG

  • A.D.

    Did that guy have a fishing pole in the camera booth?

    • Angus P. Crotchpuncher IV

      He probably saw Gardner floundering out there.

      • murphy

        horrible pun

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I have this sneaking suspicion that Adam Dunn will be the first player (with no rumors of PED use) with 500-HR’s not elected into the Hall of Fame.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I hear he doesn’t have a passion for the game.

    • A.D.

      He certainly doesn’t have that HOF type player presence, barring something unforseen, so I could see that

    • mko

      Ryan Howard could be another one. But it’s harder to predict his future with the fluctuations in his stats…

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        I’ll be surprised if Howard gets to 500. He’s at 158 right now, and he’ll be 29 in a few months. Players with those kind of skills don’t tend to age well.

        Dunn is the same age, but has 108 more career HR, including his shot from today.

      • A.D.

        Howard has already won an MVP & ROY, and while this year & last year aren’t an indication, he’s more likely to hit for solid avg.

        • mko

          If he can manage that, he has a chance IMHO.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I wonder which HOFer has the lowest career batting average. Dunn was at .247 coming into today.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Ozzie Smith’s career avg is .262, so that might be the lowest. Ditto his 87 OPS+.

        But he did backflips, so it’s cool.

        • Ivan

          and field his ass off.

        • A.D.

          Gary Carter was .262 too, as was Luis Aparicio, but they played more defensive demanding positions

          • A.D.

            Reggie was .262, so that’d be the best comparison (and Dunn is still 15 points lowe), so basically Dunn needs to be clutch in a few WS, and they he’d have a shot, but given the HRs aren’t what they used to be, probably not going to happen

            • Ivan

              Yea reggie probably played in the right era where 500 HR’s was 500 HR’s. Add on the fact was the driving force to 5 WS rings with two different teams that helps.

    • Ivan

      The problem with Dunn is that he’s a career .245 hitter, K’s too much and struggles to be a run producer because he’s a worst hitter in RISP. Plus, a hitter like Dunn usually don’t age well, I wouldn’t be surprise if he didn’t make the HOF even if he had 500+ HR’s.

      I understand the walks, OBP% and HR’s but he does hit in a friendly hitter ballpark and 500hr’s are the same they once were.

      Persoanlly I am not a Dunn Fan, and just isn’t as good as people think he is.

      • christopher

        dunn is this generation’s cecil fielder

  • mko

    Oh no, the Yankees will have to score at least one more run…

    • mko

      Well, the ‘stache took care of that…;)

    • giselle

      pshh, you think giambi and cano are gonna let that run go unanswered?

  • Ivan

    The Giambino

  • A.D.

    Guess, thats why they IBB Giambi last time around

  • Joe

    What has gotten into Cano?

  • zs190

    Yeah, the ‘stache was 5 for 7 with 3 HR against him before or something, he knew the ‘stache owns him.

  • Ivan

    Keep mow em down Andy.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    97 pitches for Andy … send him back out there?

    • Ivan

      I would certainly.

      • Angus P. Crotchpuncher IV

        Looks like Joe agrees.

    • zs190

      probably, yeah, hasn’t been very taxing innings

    • Manimal

      nah as much as the bullpen needs rest the yankees need W’s and they can’t afford to keep him in there.

  • Manimal

    Gardner needs to start making contact. He pops out weakly in the outfield way too much.

    • A.D.

      that is contact…. but I know what you mean, he had the same disease Cano did earlier in the year

      • Manimal

        I guess I meant solid contact. I expected him to be like eckstein, the little piece of shit that other teams hate because he bloops everything in the gaps and gets doubles out of them.

  • Manimal

    Thats some crazy stats for Giambi against a pretty good pitcher. 6/8, 4 hr’s and 2 doubles.

  • A.D.

    With the numbers Duchscherer is putting up, makes you wonder why he worked out of the pen for so long

    • NYFan50

      His current numbers are completely unsustainable. His K rate is too low, and it’s not like he’s getting a great groundball rate either.

      • Manimal

        He’s effective and he challenges batters by bombarding them with strikes on the corners.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          He also has a completely unsustainable .213 BABIP.

  • A.D.

    Whatever Pettite did over the ASB worked out for him

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Hustle-Rod.

  • Angus P. Crotchpuncher IV

    Mo save, or let Andy finish?

    • A.D.

      Mo, Andy is at 114 pitches or so

    • Ivan

      At 114 pitches, Pettitte is done, so Mo is gonna close this game out.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Mo.

  • Ivan

    A-Rod showing some hustle.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      Always does. But since he frosts his highlights, makes $275M, and is not faithful to his wife, he is considered a selfish, me-first player. Fuck the media.

  • Ivan

    Cano miss that one.

  • A.D.

    Brent Lillibrige, one of the Braves top prospects, has a .229 avg in the majors thus far, which is actually better than his minor league numbers this year….crazy

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Go check out Matt Antonelli’s numbers. Yikes.

  • Angus P. Crotchpuncher IV

    Did I just see “Jason Giambi” and “infield single” in the same sentence?

    • Joe

      How?

      • Angus P. Crotchpuncher IV

        ESPN Gamecast.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Great job by YES ruining that awesome shot from the blimp of Mo running in from the dugout with gigantic on-screen ads.

    • A.D.

      I was thinking the same thing

      Gotta get the Lincoln ad in there!

  • Joe

    Toronto just took over the lead on a Marco Scutaro 3 run shot

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      What the fuck is with that guy and his flare for the dramatic?

      • Joe

        I live in S.F. so I see the Yankees when they play in oakland, and for the 5 years I’ve lived here and seen the Yankees, Scutaro has fucked their day up in atleast one of the games per series

    • A.D.

      Edwin Jackson kinda fell apart

    • giselle

      thank god he’s not playing for oakland…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Oh that kick brings back painful, painful memories. Fuck Dave Roberts and Bill Mueller.

  • Manimal

    Holy Shit! Those Phiten Necklaces are $38.00.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Wow, alrighty then.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Welcome to Yankees’ baseball.

  • E-ROC

    Abooboo…

  • Manimal

    that was ugly.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      That was out #26, screw it.

  • A.D.

    Um, all I can say is wow, at least they got the out, almost a complete debacle

    for 15 M a year you think Abreu can get some shades

  • Ivan

    Rajai Davis there is no Posada behind there.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      I was thinking that: you are NOT going to run on Molina. Oh you are? Well, okay then!

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Hava Molina!

  • A.D.

    You know Molina wants the chance to gun down Davis

    as I was writing it, it happens

  • Manimal

    When was the last time we swept someone?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Padres in the middle of June.

      • Manimal

        Beat me too it by seconds.

    • Manimal

      Besides the 2 game series vs the rays the yankees last sweep was June 17th vs SD

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      The Tampa Bay Rays last week. Last three-game sweep was the Padres at home, if I’m not mistaken.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Bush league fist pumps by Molina AND Girardi.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Kim Jones is a very attractive old chic (38 now, 39 on September 7th).

    • Ivan

      she iight.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      She’s got a face like a foot.

      • Manimal

        Well said.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        LoL, wtf? I know she has a long face, but please explain.

  • Ivan

    Reyes just pull a Bill Buckner.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Giambi’s like “Leave me me the fuck alone Kim, there’s a bottle on J.D. in the clubhouse with my name on it.

  • E-ROC

    Getting a sweep must be foreign territory for the Yanks.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Jose….he wants the love. He says backup catcher this.

  • Yankee1010

    Abreu, just be a Type A and good riddance.

  • Manimal

    I really want to see Brett Gardner try to steal off of Molina.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      well let me know when that sets up. I’d like to see it myself.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    The Braves suck. How do you give up two Touchdowns to the Nats?

    • Manimal

      I hope they dont shop Teixera because they yankees won’t get him if they do.

  • Manimal

    the ray’s pen is choking.

  • JT

    Ken Singleton doing the Joe Girardi show. This is great… can we begin to see a diminished goal for Kay within the YES network? I hope so.

    • Stryker

      doubt it! he is mr. YES

  • Geno

    Willie Randolph for 3rd base coach!
