Game 148: How ’bout a win? Pretty please?


The Yanks already managed to lose today,so it would be nice to not have to go through that again tonight. Something about getting swept in a doubleheader just makes me feel dirty, and not in a good way.

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

And on the mound (hopefully for the last time) Sir Sidney Ponson.

Update (7:01pm): The game is on MY9, not YES.

    A-Jax is 1 for 2 with a HR.

  2. Mike A. says:

    If you’re around Manny, NHL 09 is sick. I traded in Madden for it, and I couldn’t be happier. What a redic game.

  3. joe says:

    Madden got boring that quick?

    • Mike A. says:

      It’s been getting boring for a few years. Not many upgrades this year, so I finally gave up. I haven’t played a hockey game in years, since NHL 98 I think.

  4. Ivan says:

    Yo why the hell is Jeter bunting? That play makes no sense considering the situation.

  5. joe says:

    I was watching the braves-mets game earlier and saw mike gonzalez pitch. That guy is a fucking riot! Talk about an animated guy with all the swaying and talking

    • Ivan says:

      I saw that game as well. He was rocking and moving all over the place. He had alot flair with his follow through. That dude is nasty though.

  6. Mike A. says:

    An unclutch induce-a-balk move by A-Rod.

  7. From LoHud:

    YANKEES (77-80)”

    I didn’t know a double header meant double dickness from PeteAbe, now?

  8. Mike A. says:

    David Cone doesn’t know how to use B-Ref.

  9. Jamal G. says:

    You know what’s funny? Every Yankee fan is cheering Derek Jeter on for this record, but if it was A-Rod and the way this season has gone, you would have article after article written about how he his just a stat padding, greedy, son of a bitch.

  10. mascot says:

    People care about the Jeter-Gehrig thing?

    And what did Cone say about b-r?

    • Mike A. says:

      I care about the Jeter-Gehrig think. Finishing with the most hits in Yankee Stadium history is a big deal for me.

      Coney said he got some stats for Sidney’s scouting report wrong, mentioning that he misused B-Ref (by name). He this was Ponson’s first career start against the Rays, then corrected himself to say he’s 8-9 against them.

  11. E-ROC says:

    Is Dan Johnson a free agent this winter?

  12. Mike Pop says:

    Mike who do you feel should be at 1b next year ? You dont want Tex for that kind of deal right ?

  13. Ivan says:

    Another hit by Jeter.

  14. Mike Pop says:

    If A Gonzo is available what kind of package would it take foe us to get him you guys think ??

  15. Jamal G. says:

    Alex Rodriguez has a .945-OPS in the past four weeks. He also has an 1.120-OPS this month, yet Derek Jeter is the only one that has “showed up”? Fuck you, Michael Kay.

  16. Ivan says:

    Another info that Kay got from Google.

  17. Mike Pop says:

    Tex is a perfect bat for us i have to make that point.

  18. Ivan says:

    Im sorry but one good year doesn’t make for a decade of futility.

  19. Mike Pop says:

    But youd have to think Tex would be solid for at least 6 of those 7 years right ? Hes in great shape takes good care of himself and hasnt had any trips to the disabled list in his career i beleive but i may be wrong…

  20. Ivan says:

    Ponson sucks.

  21. BigBlueAL says:

    Mike, talking about NHL 09 brings back memories for me, from Sega Genesis!!!! I havent played an NHL game since the last days of Genesis. Dunno why I stopped I loved those games but never kept on buying them once I got a Playstation.

    Since I am not a fan at all of the NHL now I would be frustrated not knowing the players and what not. Unless they had the 1994 Rangers that is!!!!

    • Mike A. says:

      Yeah, I jumped right on the bandwagon when the Rangers own. I stopped following hockey after/during the strike. I know about 50% of the players, but the gameplay is just unreal.

      • BigBlueAL says:

        Thats how I am with FIFA. Just downloaded the new demo and I cant wait for the game to come out on Oct 14th. Although thanks to some of my friends and having Fox Soccer Channel in my Sports Tier (only purchased to get NFL Network, only 5 bucks extra per month so not too bad, plus I also get NBATV year round) I actually know most of the players in FIFA.

        Maybe Ill download the demo. On another side note, just bought Hot Shots for PS3, AMAZING game!!!!

  22. BigBlueAL says:

    On a side not, bring out the brooms….

  23. Ivan says:

    Only Ponson can give up a GS to a average hitter when Ponson was up in the count.

  24. Jack says:

    Lohud, from earlier:

    hughes was never on joba or price’s level

    he was 2nd tier like pelfrey, kevin slowley, jonathan sanchez, masterson, john danks etc.


  25. Who the fuck allows a grand slam to Ben fucking Zobrist?

  26. Mike Pop says:

    If you want to have a contending team next year with a lineup like we need to win i cant believe that we would be okay with Giambi/Miranda platoon and I’m not a big fan of Nady therre becuz he said he wasnt comfortable there and he would only be a 1 yr fix and than wed have to give him a pretty big deal considering scott boras you know X will prob make it to FA… I know Tex and NAdy both have Boras so u dont need to tell me that. But if you want to have a team much better than the one this year and thats what we need to compete you have to get better than a Giambi/Miranda platoon. And you want to keep the farm so Tex’s deal isnt as bad as it looks. Id much rather give Tex a 120 130 mill deal than CC. Obv CC is the bigger need but Tex’s deal is less risky

  27. Ivan says:

    Guys should not start period. Bring the young guys in.

  28. Mike Pop says:

    I still dont get why Sid is starting and not some scrub from the minors or IPK,Wright w.e jus get rid of syd the kid

  29. Bill N says:

    Amazing simply amazing. I’m so excited to go tomorrow and see the turd sandwhich that is Pavano.
    Ponson please go back to Aruba.

  30. Ivan says:

    Man I can’t wait to see a Healthy Wang.

    Speaking of Wang, so much for eople dissing Wang saying he wasn’t that valuable.

  31. Ok. So Sidney Ponson starts, Ben Zobrist hits a GS, Wilson Betemit homers, and I-Rod now steals second.

    Will the cow finally jump over the moon?

  32. Ivan says:

    Hughes had 22IP pitch in one month all season at the MLB level. Don’t ya think people will say hey that’s not alot to judge on.

  33. Mike Pop says:

    I feel like he is the forgotten man ya know

  34. Ivan says:

    Yankees are on vacation right now.

  35. Bill N says:

    However a chance to see history tomorrow with Jeter.

  36. Mike Pop says:

    shit i remember when edwar gave up a GS to Dioner las year

  37. Should Joba get 3 innings of long relief to build up his workload? Wouldn’t be a bad idea IMO

  38. Mike A. says:

    Phil Coke has been rather impressive since being called up.

    Bush league fist pump though.

  39. Ivan says:

    Just missed.

  40. Bill N says:

    Pablo I wasn’t being racist. In my previous comment. He could goto India for all I care just as long as its away from the Yankees.

  41. Ivan says:

    The Mets can sure use a guy like Phil Coke. But who Im kidding. They got Kunz.

  42. E-ROC says:

    OSU is done.

  43. Mike A. says:

    So yeah, I just bought a COKE 48 shirt.

  44. Ivan says:

    Marte/Coke combination has a chance to be a devastating combo next season.

  45. Jack says:

    Coke currently has an ERA+ of ?. I consider that a small victory.

  46. Mike Pop says:

    Damn Jeter !!

  47. Ivan says:

    WOW. Just WOW.

  48. BigBlueAL says:

    Jeter as always is the man!!!!

  49. mascot says:

    They get Ponson off the hook, of course.

  50. BigBlueAL says:

    Did u see that?? Jeter wasnt even paying attention to Meacham. Its about time….

  51. Mike Pop says:

    Man only if things went our way like that the whole season

  52. Bill N says:

    Pablo sorry I can’t respond to comments in with the reply to comments option. I’m doing this from my phone. I am not that kind of person at all.

  53. Mike A. says:

    Great, here comes Balfour. This won’t be pretty.

    • BigBlueAL says:

      Why do you let Howell face A-Rod and then bring in Balfour for Nady???? Just bring him in to face A-Rod, or keep Howell to face Nady with 1b open and Cano on deck.

  54. BigBlueAL says:

    I am not ripping A-Rod nor want to get rid of him so dont start yelling at me. Im just saying though you have to admit he has some of the worse, you gotta be kidding me Strikeouts a player can have.

  55. Ivan says:

    This Yanks team showing no fight whats so ever.

  56. Ivan says:

    And now a lazy double by Cano.

  57. Mike A. says:

    Been a while since the Yanks got a bounce like that.

  58. Bill N says:

    Is Nady’s contrat through next season ? Or do we have to resign him ?

  59. Bill N says:

    So he will be back

  60. BigBlueAL says:


  61. Ivan says:

    The Melk man is back.

  62. Bill N says:

    I know I’ve asked but is anyone going to the game tomorrow ?

  63. Mike A. says:

    No strikeouts for Joba? Bust. Trade him for Bronson Arroyo while he still has value.

    • Patrick T says:

      We don’t need Arroyo since we’re going to trade Melky & Kontos for Matt Kemp, IPK & Betemit for Adrian Gonzalez, A-Rod for Jay Bruce and Volquez, and sign CC, AJ, Ben Sheets and Manny.

      We can trade Joba for Gerald Laird.


  64. Jack says:

    Is he going to finish it, or is God getting the save?

  65. BigBlueAL says:

    Gardner wears out 1st basemen.

  66. Ivan says:

    A-Jax second fastest guy next to Gardner Mike?

  67. Ivan says:

    That little man can run.

  68. Patrick T says:

    UPDATE, 10:08PM: Callin it right now, A-Rod pads his stats with a 3 run jack right here.

  69. Patrick T says:

    UPDATE 10:09 PM: I mean, doin something there woulda been kinda clutch, so naturally he made an out.

  70. Ivan says:

    He does not GOD that call. He’s going to hell.

  71. Mike A. says:

    Wow, Ohio State sucks. But as a Penn State alumn, I already knew that.

  72. Ivan says:

    Mo just pimpslaped Iwamura.

  73. Ivan says:

    Yanks win.

  74. Mike A. says:

    Thaaaaaaa Yankees win (a meaningless game)!!!
