Game 136: A four-day Halladay

Horne has torn rotator cuff
Hughes, Sanchez heading to the AzFL

Posted by mobile phone:
Roy Halladay is going for his fourth win of the year against the Yanks. Andy Pettitte will try to stop him and ensure a .500 August for the Yanks. He also has to pitch better than he did last week against the Red Sox.

    no one’s watching? hello?

    maybe everyone went to the beach…

  • Slugger27

    3 run deficit 6 minutes into the game?

    damnit girardi get ur act together!

    • Steve

      Good. I gave up after the Red Sox series. Now I want them to deal Pavano by tonight’s deadline and bring up the kids. This may be the final nail in the Yankee coffin for the front office.

      4-0. Scott Rolen HR. Halladay pitching, game over.

  • Bill N

    Great start to this one

    • Slugger27

      at least we picked a good day to give up 3 in the 1st inning… halladay always gets shelled

  • Slugger27

    sigh…..

  • http://www.mvn.com/mlb-yankees Jim Johnson

    Yeah, not so good.

  • Steve

    So how about them Giants?

    Boy, that defensive line really took a hit this year, huh?

  • Slugger27

    whats a good movie i can go rent? any good horror flicks anyone know of?

  • http://www.mvn.com/mlb-yankees Jim Johnson

    YES has a pretty good horror flick on right now…

    • Slugger27

      that one is wayyyyy too scary. im trying to avoid nightmares here

  • dkidd

    john carpenter’s “the thing” is my favorite horror movie

  • dkidd

    “the descent” is scary as hell

    • Slugger27

      ive heard of the descent…. never heard of the thing… premise?

  • dkidd

    kurt russell stars. bunch of scientists on the north pole uncover an alien that can shift into any form, so everyone’s a suspect. the gore effects are amazing considering it was made in 1982

    highest recommendation

    • Slugger27

      nice, im intrigued…. i got 30 bucks card to spend at blockbuster so lookin for ways to blow thru it, thanks

  • radnom

    Poltergeist

    • Slugger27

      i have this one… im a horror buff so i got most of the classics, great flick indeed

      • CTYankee

        The Audition is great if you can find it. Japanese and very creepy

  • dkidd

    make sure you get it widescreen!

  • E-ROC

    Molina sure does call a better game than Rodriguez, which is why Pettitte did not want I-Rod to catch’em. That would explain Pettitte’s effectiveness in his last couple of starts.

    It’s only the 3rd inning. There is a lot of game left. Umm….have hope?! :(

  • BigBlueAL

    WOW if this isnt an indication of how this season is going nothing else is, there is literally nobody commenting today!!!!

    • Slugger27

      aside from horror flicks, what is there to say?

      • BigBlueAL

        But the Yankees arent mathematically eliminated yet, there is still hope!!!!

  • dkidd

    i’d love to see a thread where people weigh in on what the yanks should do with this free month

    • Slugger27

      make kennedy’s ass pitch

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

        Him, Hughes, Aceves. Get them innings. It’s not like they can get many more pitching in the minors.

        There’s no reason to let Pavano, Rasner, and Ponson continue to start games. If they’re throwing in the towel, those are three pieces that probably won’t be around next year. If they’re still holding out hope, well, it’s not like Rasner and Ponson give you a decidedly better chance than the kids.

        • Slugger27

          i agree. i guess i just dont see the point of havin ponson still on the team… he sucks, hes not a long term answer, he doesnt even really eat innings that well, make kennedy pitch….

          also, it seems like every time i check the box score scott strickland does really well. hes the AAA close i beleive…. lets see what he can do

  • E-ROC

    Clutch’em all, b*tches!

  • Slugger27

    roys losin some gas on his fastball

  • E-ROC

    See haters, I’m clutch! says Giambi.

  • Slugger27

    roys not comin out til hes at least at 115 pitches

  • E-ROC

    Eckstein’s grittiness was all over that hit. Dammit!!!

  • Slugger27

    aight, gonna go watch a horror flick, catch u guys on the flip side

    by the way, this game is totally on girardi :)

  • E-ROC

    Girardi might be little late again with his pitching changes.

  • E-ROC

    Beating yourselves don’t help you win games, Yankees. Geez…

  • BigBlueAL

    September could be real ugly. Wouldnt be surprised to see the Yankees finish in 4th in division and barely finish above .500 for the season. When a veteran team that had big-time expectations plays out the string in September, it sometimes gets real ugly….

    • Hitman

      It’s time to push that payroll to 300 million. How embarrassing that the Rays are doing what they’re doing on Arod’s salary for this season. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!

      • Kyle D.

        43 million a year for the Rays.

  • Joey H

    ha who was the asshole on here who was jumping allover me cause he was certain that pettite would be spectacular after the ASB? how do u like me NOWW

    • BigBlueAL

      I dont think he is totally healthy for whatever that is worth.

      • Kyle D.

        Then he shouldn’t be pitching.

  • E-ROC

    See what happens when you attack the strike zone, Veras? You get outs.

  • Kyle D.

    Bring back Moose next year, say goodbye to Pettitte.

  • Kyle D.

    7-pitch inning for Halladay. Greeeeeeeeeeat job guys.

  • E-ROC

    So long Ponson and Rasner. Hello Aceves!

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona Beach

      Finally, a ray of hope.

  • bill

    Well, at least Aceves looked great

  • bill

    I’m watching the future investment pitch a 1 hit shutout against the Pirates. 10 K’s, still throwin hard.

  • bill

    Sabathia: CG, 1H, 3BB, 11K. The only hit he gave up was a check swing by Andy LaRoche. It couldve been scored an error on CC. 9-0 with the Brewers. Next year will be great.

  • dkidd

    ned yost is to cc as

    joe torre was to scott proctor

    • bill

      He was still throwing 94-96 in the 9th. I understand your concerns though

      • dkidd

        less about today than the cumulative effect (130 pitches last week etc)

  • Hitman

    Aceves has great stuff. All this time I’ve been hearing his fastball is like 90-91 when in fact it’s 90-94 mph! I’m glad Rasner and Ponson are starting instead of him.

  • Rich I.

    Don’t forget, he only threw two innings today, so he probably wasn’t holding anything back. It will be interesting to see if he can throw 90-94 over 6 innings.

  • Hitman

    Aceves did not appear to be using maximum effort otherwise all his pitches would have been around 94 mph so yes I think he can maintain that velocity as a starter.
