Game 136: A four-day Halladay


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…

  2. Slugger27 says:

    3 run deficit 6 minutes into the game?

    damnit girardi get ur act together!

    • Steve says:

      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.

  3. Bill N says:

    Great start to this one

  4. Slugger27 says:


  5. Steve says:

    So how about them Giants?

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

  6. Slugger27 says:

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

  7. Jim Johnson says:

    YES has a pretty good horror flick on right now…

  8. dkidd says:

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

  9. dkidd says:

    “the descent” is scary as hell

  10. dkidd says:

    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 says:

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

  12. dkidd says:

    make sure you get it widescreen!

  13. E-ROC says:

    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?! :(

  14. BigBlueAL says:

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

  15. dkidd says:

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

    • Slugger27 says:

      make kennedy’s ass pitch

      • Joseph P. says:

        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 says:

          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

  16. E-ROC says:

    Clutch’em all, b*tches!

  17. Slugger27 says:

    roys losin some gas on his fastball

  18. E-ROC says:

    See haters, I’m clutch! says Giambi.

  19. Slugger27 says:

    roys not comin out til hes at least at 115 pitches

  20. E-ROC says:

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

  21. Slugger27 says:

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

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

  22. E-ROC says:

    Girardi might be little late again with his pitching changes.

  23. E-ROC says:

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

  24. BigBlueAL says:

    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….

  25. Joey H says:

    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

  26. E-ROC says:

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

  27. Kyle D. says:

    Bring back Moose next year, say goodbye to Pettitte.

  28. Kyle D. says:

    7-pitch inning for Halladay. Greeeeeeeeeeat job guys.

  29. E-ROC says:

    So long Ponson and Rasner. Hello Aceves!

  30. bill says:

    Well, at least Aceves looked great

  31. bill says:

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

  32. bill says:

    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.

  33. dkidd says:

    ned yost is to cc as

    joe torre was to scott proctor

  34. Hitman says:

    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.

  35. Rich I. says:

    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.

  36. Hitman says:

    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.
