    Mike: Do you think the Jays rushed Snider? He was hitting .260 or so in AA (albeit with 20 HR’s) and they promoted him to AAA. After a few weeks there with decent numbers, they call him up. Meanwhile, AJax was hitting about .290 in AA, and the Yanks dont even promote him to AAA. Can you please explain this to me, because AJax has responded to challenges well in his short minor league career.

  2. A.D. says:

    Big G back in the line-up

  3. A.D. says:

    Apparently Beckett actually is okay

  4. kunaldo says:

    have you guys noticed the foolish media people who are freaking out that joba is initially going to come back in the bullpen? frankly, they’re being moronic(the media people) b/c they dont realize that he has to be stretched out before he can start, and since they’d rather use his quality innings up here, they’re going to have him stretched out from the pen first…

    and then those people who just flat out say he should be shut down if the yanks are out of it…well, if he’s healthy(and the doctors will determine that), he NEEDS to pitch because he needs to get his innings up so that he can actually be a full time starter next year

    sorry, i just wanted to vent because Brandon Tierney was saying some stupid ish this morn, and no one called in and put him in his place

  5. Joe says:

    Sleep prospect Victor Zambrano climbing up the company ladder to AAA today.

  6. Jake H says:

    I hate watching Pavano.

  7. A.D. says:

    20…watch out Vlad

  8. Mike A. says:

    A-Rod is so unclutch. Only more years of this shit.

    Oh wait, that was Jeter. He’s awesome, great play making the SS and 2B waste that energy, that will help the Yanks later in the game.

  9. Jake H says:

    I love how they don’t grind at bats against a guy who’s dominated them. 9 pitches it pathetic.

  10. A.D. says:

    Obviously there has been a lot made about money ball, but as the A’s and other “money ball teams” haven’t been as successful of late i wonder if there will be a money ball backlash, as people see the anti-money ball teams such as Angels succeed

  11. Pops says:

    burnetts a yank nex year

  12. daneptizl says:

    How did Aceves get on the 40-man roster?

  13. Pops says:

    thats hard work ethic right there.. showing up late missing batting practice… you only make 27.5 mill a year.. take ur time arod next time dont show up till the 5th inning

    • Mike A. says:

      He got stuck in traffic, chill out. You’ve never been late to work because of traffic?

      • Pops says:

        its just funny… you hear that burnett likes the big stage !

        • Steve says:

          Sure, he’s a free agent. Everyone likes the yanks when they’re FAs.

          BTW-What does it say about his work ethic that he “Gets up for Yankee games” and pitches like shit the rest of the year? Doesn’t sound too professional or committed to me, unless he sees $$$. When a guy is signed to a guaranteed contract, the money no longer motivates him. He’s got it in his pocket at that point.

          Don’t sign him.

  14. Mike A. says:

    Travis Snider should be just starting his junior year of college. Crazy.

  15. Ivan says:

    UPDATE, 6:40 p.m.: A-Rod got stuck in traffic today and missed batting practice. But he has arrived at the Stadium and will play.

    Meanwhile Jeter left his place early and stopped twice on his way to the stadium to escort blind old ladies across the street. And he got Starbucks.

    Why does Pete Abe gotta be a dick.

  16. Pops says:

    i love how he says update like its unsolved mysteries

  17. Pops says:

    i know sabathia is the better pitcher and all im not trying to make a point i just think this is a good stat… sabathia–1607 career innings and burnett–1333.2//// obv injuries and sabathia just being a workhorse.. 3 yrs of age difference.. sabathia is a monster

  18. Jake H says:

    Pavano is getting out’s but they make me cringe.

  19. Nick says:

    Pete Abe wrote the yanks off earlier this month so don’t take what he says too seriously…

    He’s also a Patriots fan…

    • Mike A. says:

      I really hope the Yanks make the playoffs, then we can call him out on that incredibly original photoshop job of a tombstone that reads “RIP 2008 YANKEES.”

  20. Mike A. says:

    Little know fact: if the Yanks won Game 6 of the 2003 WS, the Marlins’ Game 7 starter would have been … Carl Pavano.

  21. Jake H says:

    He’s fooling the Jays but I don’t know how.

  22. Pops says:

    WTF ! damn son

  23. Pops says:

    Michael Kay loves talking bout free agents and offseason moves.. I remember last year he was talking bout how Johan and CC were gonna be FA’s the same season.. Imagine if Johan made it tho. Woulda been great stuff having 2 great lefties on the market.. Would be a hell of a FA Sp market

  24. Mike A. says:

    Holy shit, I said that for the trivia, but I took it back thinking the Yanks didn’t play the Angels enough times each year. Damn.

  25. TheLastClown says:

    If there’s a swinging K & the catcher drops the ball, with a man on first…..does it then become a force play? Or does the batter just make an out & the throw down isn’t necessary? Thanks in advance for the clarity.

  26. Pops says:

    Lets go Yanks !

  27. Mike A. says:

    That hit was UUUUUUUUGE.

  28. Joe says:

    With all the bitching that’s been going on about the Yankees this year, I feel like proper respect has not been given to Damon. The guy seems to be all over the place lately and is having a great year offensively, and aint that bad defensively either. I know it’s tough to positive, but hey.

    • Pops says:

      hes bad defensively.. hes worse than abreu and most ppl on here hate abreus defense

      • TheLastClown says:

        Yeah, he is. After he booted those fly balls last week I was cringing. His defense has gotten much worse.

        That said, he’s been one of the few Yanks I’ve enjoyed watching at the plate, so I’m more than happy to excuse the questionable D.

        If only there was some way to have BG play everyday & not worry about the lack of offense…..Johnny looks much nicer in left.

        • Steve H says:

          We could get away with that if we had a healthy Posada, a productive Cano and a less streaky Giambi. Either way, if (when) we are officially out of it, I’d definitely like to see more of BG.

      • Steve H says:

        I don’t think he’s worse than Abreu, and if he is, it’s not for a lack of effort and fear of the wall like Abreu. Abreu could be better defensively, Damon gives it all he has all the time

        • Joe says:

          No way hes worse than abreu, he gets to balls and is not afraid of the wall. Though I was mostly saying he’s been good at the plate and fun to watch.

        • TheLastClown says:

          True, but Abreu’s arm really makes his defense more palatable, despite the fear of the wall. Personally I think his strengths outweigh that one hole in his game, I mean, isn’t it nicer to lose the occasional ball by the wall than to not have the good plate discipline & speed & cannon arm?

          I wish he would lay it down out there of course, but he’s way down there on my list of grievances.

    • The Fallen Phoenix says:

      Actually, Damon was one of the top left fielders in all of baseball range-wise, and can more than hold his own in center range-wise, as well.

      Abreu, meanwhile, has been one of the worst defenders in all of baseball, let alone at RF.

      Outfield arms are overrated. They’re really, really nice to have, but the ability to actually get to balls and catch them is horribly under-appreciated.

  29. Pops says:

    ya A-rod ! thats how to do it

  30. Kelvin says:

    Clutch! ;)

  31. Kelvin says:

    1st pitch hitting! oh yeah…

  32. Jake H says:

    2 runs. I can’t believe it.

  33. Pops says:

    Anyone think the Sox are gonna fall apart kinda like we did when Joba went down ?

  34. Pops says:

    We gotta hope the white sox or minny wins and red sox and one of the central teams just die.. we gotta win at least 20 more games to have a shot right

    • Smitt Dog says:

      would need about 22 wins to have a legit shot in my mind. And thats not possible in my mind.

      I’m concentrating on enjoying the games for the games at this point.

      • Pops says:

        22 and 7 ? Shit we gonna go 25 and 4

        • Kelvin says:

          We are at what, 71 wins right now? If they do go atleast 19 and 10, which doesn’t look impossible, then we would end up at 90 wins, and might not still make the post season (which at the current rate of things, we won’t). So, im just thinking, how many 90 win teams failed to play in October baseball? Anyone knows?

  35. Jake H says:

    Pavano sure likes the change tonight.

  36. Jake H says:

    Mike what’s Ryan Pope’s ceiling? Do you think he starts in AA next year?

  37. Pops says:

    pavano starting to scare me

    • Steve H says:

      Most people have a contract year, looks like Pavano is working (well) on a contract month. Hope the Sox sign him, they did offer him more $$$ than we did last time. Too bad Boras wasn’t his agent and forced him to go to the highest bidder.

      • Pops says:

        his agent is just as cocky tho.. remember he was like carl is a 1 2 starter, there isnt many 200 inning guys out there and 200 innning guys are the guys who are going to make the money.. lol @ that

  38. Ivan says:

    Cano hitting that one well.

  39. kunaldo says:

    2 freakin baserunners?? carlos juan samuel pavano, you are a cheeky bastard

  40. Pops says:

    wat bout cano hitting higher in the order ? maybe next year.. in the 3 hole or maybe lead off.. id like him leadoff for a while if we happend to deal damon.. I like cano alot =]

    • Steve H says:

      Cano in leadoff makes no sense. His obp is barely over .300, he doesn’t steal bases or see pitches. I’m a huge Cano fan, and expect a big bounce back year, but he will never be a leadoff guy

      • Pops says:

        ya but if he hits at his potential he can hit 320 with a higher obp.. hes got some quickness he could run if needed

  41. TheLastClown says:

    Just for the record, those of you who want Burnett….this AJ is the typical one. This is the pitcher that we’d get. The flashes of brilliance are outweighed by control problems & injury.

    Big pass on Mr. Burnett

    • Ivan says:

      Burnett is one of those players the yanks tend to fall into a trap (well actually George) in a stand point they would sign players who did great against them and usually the suck agains everybody else and when they become yanks, still kill the team.

    • Steve H says:

      Yeah, and this is the contract year Burnett too. He will never get better than this year, and he hasn’t done all that well this year, performances against us notwithstanding. Much rather go after Sheets, who while injury prone, has had a bunch of odd, off the wall injuries, not the long term type injuries that would really concern me. Of course that’s if we don’t get CC

  42. Pops says:

    Id take a start like this from burnett anytime

  43. Ivan says:

    wow snider hit a rocket.

  44. Pops says:

    happy for him man.. he was thrilled talking to number 2

  45. kunaldo says:

    I hate to be buzz killington over here, but pavano’s GB/FB ratio is 4/13….lucky much?

  46. Manimal says:

    Ha just realized you answered the my question in the live chat, thanks.

  47. Pops says:

    So what if i like him lol.. He can be an overpowering pitcher and he is one of my favorite pitchers to watch

  48. Ivan says:

    wow alex rios OB% is less than 34%.

    • Steve H says:

      They probably won’t move him with his value low, but with Lind/Wells (unmovable contract)/Snider for the future, I wonder if Rios will be put on the block within the next few years.

      • Pops says:

        i know they were in talks over the past offseason to trade him for lincecum or cain but i think giants pulled it back after the rowand signing.. if i rememebr right they wanted cain but giants were only willing to give up lincecum.. I dont get that.. I woulda pulled that right away if I was the jays

      • Ivan says:

        Well they would wanna move wells, but that ain’t happening, Lind might get something good but he’s young and can be a very good hitter, snider isn’t going anywhere.

        I guess it’s Rios yeah.

  49. Smitt Dog says:

    Leiter waxing poetic about Snider’s first hit, and how innocent and wide eyed he must be as he puts in a huge dipper of chaw. Priceless.

  50. Ivan says:

    nice for pavano to finish strong.

  51. Pops says:

    pick up his option

  52. Joe says:

    Big game pitcher Carl Pavano!

  53. Manimal says:

    1 years, 16 million, 1 year option. Would you rather sign Pavano or Pettite for that money.

    • steve says:

      seriously ? come on i hope he pitches well because hes a yankee, but this is pavano we’re talking it …. pettite. no questions asked

      moving on.

  54. Jake H says:

    A quality start is a quality start.

  55. Manimal says:

    dejavu for Abreu.

  56. Smitt Dog says:

    Holy shit alex

  57. Ivan says:

    Gotta go the other away with that pitch A-Rod.

  58. Manimal says:

    Shut up fans. we are winning and Arod actually helped get runs. wheres Jamal when you need him.

  59. The Fallen Phoenix says:

    But Derek Jeter grounds into a double-play in the first inning, and that’s okay?

    • Steve H says:

      Runs and outs calculated differently in the later innings and also depending on the batter who makes said out.

      • The Fallen Phoenix says:

        Damn, you’re right. I forgot that when a batter crosses home plate in every inning after the fifth, two runs go up on the scoreboard instead of one.

        That’s why we won last night 6-2!

        • Steve H says:

          Had Jeter knocked in the runs, it would have been 9-2, had A-Rod knocked them it, we would have lost, hands down.

    • Steve says:

      Jeter’s expectations are totally different, and that’s not unfair. One’s a 2 hitter and the other is your cleanup hitter. Jeter’s job is to get on base, Alex’s job is to drive Jeter home.

      So if Jeter gets on base twice, everybody’s happy. If A-Rod singles twice, for the fans its like kissing your sister. But I think Alex would do much better to lower his own expectations, and just let his talent take over. He tries to please the fans, be the big star, and thats how he gets himself into trouble.

      • Jeremy says:

        I really hate Arod/Jeter endless comparisons but it’s true that they have different jobs. not sure either is doing his this year but when Alex doesn’t do it, it’s a bigger impact. He’s the drive the runs in guy and that’s what he has not done all year.

        when a club gets hurt like this one has, you need them to drive in runs and they don’t do that. They’ve cobbled together a lot of wins for a hurting club but they’ve missed so many opportunities offensively in every single game. it’s been a nightmare.

    • Steve H says:

      And this is why JP will lose his job soon.

      The Blue Jays want Cain for Rios, according to a high-ranking Toronto official, and the Giants seem more willing to part with Tim Lincecum.

      http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/.....KTOFV9.DTL

      • Pops says:

        it wasnt up to jp they left the ball in sabaens court .. jp had it on the table ever since the first discussion.. He was okay with lincecum but sabaen refused in the end to give it up.. i was right from the beginning

      • Ivan says:

        that was one deals that somebody was gonna get fired or should get fired for.

    • Pops says:

      The giants have been worried bout his delivery and thats why they were offering him and not matt cain… they were worried he could hurt his arm with that kind of style .. but than they manned up and gave 60 mill to rowand and it ultimately ended up in rios getting that multti year deal

  60. Pops says:

    Shit i was exactly right thats funny

  61. Stryker says:

    why did pavano get taken out?!

    • Steve H says:

      When the blind squirrel finds a nut, he doesn’t walk around showing it off, he eats it. No need to risk Pavano sucking here, maybe we can even get a bag of used balls for him after this start.

  62. Kyle D. says:

    So I’m on gamecast and just checked Sniders vitals…

    5’11″ 245 Lbs.

    I saw that and just imagined a brick wall, am I far off?

  63. Ivan says:

    How many players in baseball are truly great?

    Seriously that word gets thrown around more in baseball than any other sport.

    If you really think about there nit alot of great players (position players) in baseball.

  64. JG says:

    Giardi is trying to get everyone a shot to lost the game…

  65. BigBlueAL says:

    Joe Girardi channeling his inner Tony Larussa….

  66. cupz says:

    Not to be too off topic, but Tim Lincecum would get my Cy Young vote.

  67. Pops says:

    Wheres Holliday end up this offseason fellas ?? And is it possible Halladay gets moved to Texas for a package centered around Elvis ?

    • Mike A. says:

      No reason to trade Halladay, he’s locked up below market value for the next two seasons. I can’t imagine what it would take to get him.

      I bet Holliday stays put too.

      • Pops says:

        i only made that comment becuz of a post i saw on mlbtr some weeks back and was wondering your views.. they could get a deal done tho rangers farm is great and it could be centered round elvis and chris davis cmon now a SS is what they need and elvis is the best ss prospect around

      • Steve says:

        I’m hoping for an all-”Day” team someday.

        Roy Halladay

        Matt Holliday

        Zach Day

        Coached of course, by Doris Day.

    • Ivan says:

      Hell no. Look if Halladay gets move you to Texas there is no way a deal gets centered around Elvis. It better be Chris Davis or something.

  68. Joey says:

    Tampa’s kicking the shit outta Baltimore 10-0 after the 4th, and Kazmir’s pitching

  69. Pops says:

    Mike you think Atkins goes than if holliday stays ?

    • Mike A. says:

      I would think so. The 1B/3B market is weak, so they could get a nice return. Ian Stewart has a 1.044 OPS since being called up in mid-July, so they have a replacement ready.

  70. Ivan says:

    That’s we need Joba in the Pen.

  71. Pops says:

    shit man i dont like this at all

  72. BigBlueAL says:

    Boston really struggling tonight…

  73. BigBlueAL says:

    Back-to-back awful outings by Veras.

  74. E-ROC says:

    It may be time to switch Marte and Veras. Marte has been mowing hitters down since being Torre-ize. Make Marte the 8th inning guy.

  75. Jake H says:

    I got a bad feeling about this inning

  76. kunaldo says:

    veras is coming back to earth…damn it

    rivera here??

  77. Mike A. says:

    Hopefully Edwar can fool the kid with the change, and Mo can clean up the rest of the mess.

  78. Mike A. says:

    Oh thank Mariano, Mariano’s coming in.

  79. TheLastClown says:

    Mo time

  80. Pops says:

    I wanna see Aceves pitch.. Im not saying i wanna see him in now i just wanna see him pitch lol

  81. BigBlueAL says:

    Isnt a lefty Inglett up next?? Why take out Ramirez and make Mo pitch that much more????

  82. Pops says:

    o man remember oakland

  83. E-ROC says:

    Oh God, Scutaro is up.

  84. Kelvin says:

    One more out..c’mon..

  85. BigBlueAL says:

    I was in fuckin shock when he hit that HR.

  86. Ivan says:

    didn’t adam sandler did that in Anger management.

  87. Mike A. says:

    We are all witnesses.

  88. Jake H says:

    Mo Mo Mo

  89. Pops says:

    theres not many things more exciting than a moment like that when mo comes in and k’s the dude

  90. Ivan says:

    Mo: This ain’t oakland Bitch.

  91. Kelvin says:

    K! yeah!

  92. Joey says:

    …….and breathe…….. Mo is GOD

  93. E-ROC says:

    Out-stinkin’-standing!

  94. BigBlueAL says:

    The Knicks got Patrick Ewing today!!!!! Jr that is……

  95. Cy Farnsworth says:

    best relief pitcher ever.

  96. Ivan says:

    Mo is on pace to have a year where he has less than 10 BB.

    Mo is the prime reason why the Fastball is the best pitch in baseball.

  97. BigBlueAL says:

    Not for nothing but this is getting beyond ridiculous these games vs Burnett. Its one thing with Halladay cause he dominates everyone and is a former Cy Young winner but for as much as great stuff that Burnett has the Yankees are the only team he even comes close to dominating.

  98. Pops says:

    why wouldnt you like to have Burnett honestly ??? another outstanding start by him// hell even hank wants him he said it today

    • Steve H says:

      His Era is comparable to Ponson’s, and take out his starts against the Yankees and it’s over 5 (and worse than Ponson’s!), in one of his better years. This is the 1st year he’s ever won more than 12 games in a year. That’s why I wouldn’t want to have him. If we could get him for 2/16 mil sure, but that ain’t happening. He’s not worth whatever he’ll get.

    • TheLastClown says:

      Because his start would’ve looked considerably different today, especially in the earlier innings, if our offense was producing. We helped him out through 5, and he was very good today. Against other teams he struggles, and he’s injury prone. He’s a rist, and maybe he steps it up against the Yanks, but who cares? He wouldn’t face us @ all if we have him.

      Carsten Charles

      • Steve H says:

        Literally, his best asset as a Yankee would be that we don’t have to face him 3-4 times a year. His actual performance would probably hurt us.

    • BigBlueAL says:

      Look at his career numbers, hell look at his numbers this season. They are not that great. Dont be fooled by his success vs the Yankees, although I admit Ive been watching him since his Marlins days livin down here and I would be tempted to say if he signed with the Yankees he would love the big stage and step it up but he is not that young anymore and you never know if his injury problems will pop up again. But man his stuff is dynamite when he is on….

      • Steve H says:

        Just looked at his #’s this season. He has a career worst whip for a full season (which there aren’t many due to several injuries) and he’ll be 32 opening day next year, so he’ll be in the last year of what is generally considered a players prime (though his hasn’t been much of a prime). No thanks.

  99. TheLastClown says:

    If Mo closes it out, does Burnett get a CG?

  100. Ivan says:

    lets get this win.

  101. Jake H says:

    Mo painting that corner.

  102. Pops says:

    Steve H don’t ever again compareAJ to Sid the kid…

  103. Jake H says:

    Lefties can’t touch mo. It’s over!

  104. Pops says:

    24 more W’s and we in !!!!! /this is good i like this alot//// Lighting a spark ?

  105. Steve says:

    Wow, huge props to Pavano for pulling this one out of his ass.

  106. Steve says:

    Somehow, when we get a well pitched game nobody’s all hung up about who hit with RISP or not.

  107. E-ROC says:

    Thank God for Mo!

  108. Joey says:

    Thank Mariano we have the Mariano

  109. Pops says:

    24 more W’s and we good ! Lighting a spark ?

  110. BigBlueAL says:

    This win would be more exciting if Boston wasnt winning 8-0 in the 8th inning….

  111. cupz says:

    Pops needs to wake up. Can’t pay $10 million a year for a 4.5 pitcher. You can get Mussina for cheaper than that (hell, pretty much any decent pitcher for cheaper than that), and there are plenty of other more viable options

    • Steve H says:

      It’ll be more than $10mil, he’s getting $12mil now, and will be opting out of the last 2 years for approx $24mil.

  112. Kelvin says:

    18 more wins to 90, go yanks!

  113. Pops says:

    im just gonna go start my own blog

  114. Mike A. says:

    Oh wow. Kevin Gregg sucks.

  115. Pops says:

    I’m tired of all this hating on me when its the first time im speaking out on something i truly beleive on this blog. Its not about making the smartest or wisest decision… Seattle gave Silva a 4 yr 48 mill deal Mets gave Johan a 6 or 7 yr deal worth 140 mill Giants with zito everyone knows all of this… Were all of those wise decisions ? No not at all..your telling me its wise to give a 6 or 7 yr deal to CC who while is a much better pitcher than Aj it is not smart to give him a 7 or 8 yr deal… In todays game its not about the smartest decisions its bout making moves within reason to compete in the game.. While signing Aj for all that money isnt the wisest its one of the best options.. He solidifies the rotation with a guy who has ace stuff and is supposedly known for pitching in a big game.. They say he loves it or w.e like pitching at the stadium.. Giving any pitcher more than 5 yrs at an excess of 10 mill a year is dumb none of those contracts are smart its like the troll of the die anything can go wrong so stop saying its the dumbest thing to do… Money matters we gave Clemens 28 mmilll for 10 games so stop acting like the yanks are so worried bout that. they may want you to think they are that worried bout money but deep down its not as bad as they want the media to think

      With the money they will be making with the new stadium, they could afford an entire 5-man rotation of 15 mil/year starters.

      We’re not hating on you, and nobody is flat out bashing your ideas, just some light fun because none of us really agree Burnett is worth that much unless he’s pitching against us. You’re welcome to share your thoughts, even ones non-AJ related (sorry, had to). The Yanks have tons of cash to spend next year, who knows what the hell they’ll do with it.

        I know its all light fun but AJ is that kind of pitcher. Youve heard the stories how he sat out becuz of “injuries” or he outplayed them and made them worse than they actually were. He loved the idea of going to play for the cubs.. Im not saying its gauranteed because i dont beleive that but hes pitching somewhere where baseball isnt that big of a deal … in toronto its hockey nation and they are never in the thick of things like the yanks who knows maybe it will inspire him more and make him work harder… I would love to see him staart every 5th day becuz hes one of my favorites to watch and maybe it would spark the offense to see some dominating pitching performances like that

      Oh please. Were just having a little fun with you.

    Im just saying id be willing to bet if he pitched for the yanks his era will be somewhere around 3.25 and 3.75

    • Steve says:

      What does it say about his work ethic that he “Gets up for Yankee games” and pitches like shit the rest of the year? Doesn’t sound too professional or committed to me, unless he sees $$$. Which has been his rap as a pitcher, taking lots of time off for questionable injuries and not showing a consistent desire to compete.

    I met him at marlins training camp when i was younger okay lol hes my boy

  118. I can’t read all 282 posts, but I just got home from the stadium. I think hell just froze over, and every Yankee fan who stayed the entire game really believes this team can do it, despite Alex.

    I didn’t have that many beers right? It was Carl “my butt hurts, my rib hurts, etc…” Pavano pitching… for the Yankees ???
