    105 pitches through 5 for Sabathia. Not good, but he’s doing a good job keeping us in the game without his best stuff. And a nice, hard “FUCK” from his mouth on the way to the dugout.

        So I guess that run doesn’t count, according to your logic.

  • Mike

    Wow, that strikeout says it all about the crowd. He’s pumped after getting out of that jam and judging by the crowd’s reaction it could have been a groundout to first.

    Why can’t we hit with runners in scoring position? Does anybody know what our team BA is with RISP right now? It has to be absolutely terrible. With the exception of last night’s game we I would guess it would have been hovering around the .100 line. We either hit home runs or sac flys for the most part. We couldn’t hit with RISP last year and the outcome was the nearly 200 less runs scored than the year before. It’s spilling over to this year so far…

    • Bill R

      • Axl

        My guess would be Albaledejo again…could be a Groundhog Day effect like the other day…only this time Wang wasn’t pitching and giving up 9 runs in an inning.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          FWIW, I was perusing the Win Expectancy graph of that game again yesterday.

          Girardi lifted Wang when the team was trailing 5-0 with the bases loaded and no outs. The Rays expected win percentage there was already like 97%. Meaning, throughout history, about three games out of a hundred does a team ever win that game.

          Albaladejo giving up the grand slam and changing it from 5-0 to 9-0 barely made a dent in the win expectancy (like 97% to 98%). The game was effectively already over before he came in, the grand slam was rather immaterial.

    Joe Girardi is a genius lol

  • Tom Zig

    If this isn’t a showing of confidence to Phil Coke, I don’t know what is. Here is to hoping he does very well.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      +1.

      Not how I would have done it, but it showed great faith, hopefully Coke builds on this.

  • Mike

    excuse me while i get my oxygen tank…

  • Drew

    YAY!! love the flip down glasses! Coke make a me happy

  • Tampa Yankee

    Phew… now lets get the bats going.

    Alright fellas, just got home. How are we doing so far?!

      Turn on your TV and find out LOL

    • steve (different one)

      1-1.

      just what you’d expect from 2 CYA winners squaring off.

      Swisher will break the tie…

  • gxpanos

    He got the out, see?

    C’mon everyone. It’s the bullpen. Haven’t we learned that the difference between Girardi and Torre is that Girardi won’t bury guys because of a few bad outings, thus not destroying their confidence and strengthening the BP over the long run? I LOVE that Phil didnt get sent down and I love seeing him get that out.

    Remember Proctor, guys?

    • Bill R

  • Quikksand

    Time for the offense to do it’s job.

  • BigBlueAL

    Hey Arod hit 3 hr’s during a 49 swing batting practice today. Only 3, he sucks lets keep Ransom….

    • Tom Zig

      yeah! he should have hit 51 HRs. Damn it!

    50 push ups, gardner

    thats gonna put cokes wpa off the charts

  • Tom Zig

    And once again, no one wants to work the count.

    • Drew

      I thought this too, then I looked at Lee’s PC, its 110. we obviously are taking some pitches.

  • BigBlueAL

    Honestly they should really make Gardner do 20 push-ups like Willie Mays Hayes did every time he hits a ball in the air.

    • Bill R

      seriously haha

    • steve (different one)

      agreed.

  • Quikksand

    Man, This offense can’t do much today…

  • Mike

    this game has been painful to watch

  • Bill R

    Who thinks Damon will ground out to second?

  • Axl

    When 4 of the batters are Gardner, Ransom/Pena, and sometimes Molina…and even Matsui lately…it’s a miracle how games are won. It’s like having 4 pitchers bat…

    • Bill R

      It’s so painful to watch

    • Mike

      Gardner is not in Ransom/Molina’s category.

      • Axl

        Maybe not…but when he’s up my confidence level is more towards their level than Jeter or Damons (even though Damon has been on the decline this year which is easy to see)

        • Tony

          Yes, easy to see after 9 games.

    • Quikksand

      Tell me about it.

    • http://eemack.blogspot.com Eric

      They’re scoring 5.5 runs a game. 7th in baseball, lets relax folks.

  • whitty

    Edwar pitched well. Ransom needs to be able to make that throw, and the groundball from Francisco just happened to be well-placed.

    And kudos to Girardi for throwing Coke out there in a pressure situation against a lefty batter. That should be a real confidence builder, plus it saves Marte for the eighth.

    I wonder who will pitch the seventh?

    • Axl

      Coke will stay out there

    • Bill R

      The Hot Dog Vendor in the bleachers

  • kSturnz

    bleed it out on the speakers for Johnny? I liked the Rays’ music

  • steve (different one)

    that should do it for Lee, that’s the good news i guess.

    • Thomas

      Except for the fact the Yankees can’t hit Betancourt.

  • Jasper

    Veras scares me… Dude has the stuff, just wish he learned how to command his pitches.

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

    Good grief, with the matchups. Just leave Coke out there dammit.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Agreed.

      This game could easily, easily end up in extra innings. Coke isn’t remotely gassed and he’s not a LOOGY, let him go.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Oh Mo, my heart can’t take Veras pitching meaningful innings.

  • BigBlueAL

    What a shocker, Veras didnt come close to throwing a strike to the leadoff hiter.

  • Mike

    veras has such good control…

  • Christopher

    Does Jose Veras have any idea whatsoever where he’s throwing it.

  • jon

    wow that “ball” 4 was right down the middle

    veras must have slept with the umps wife

  • A.D.

    Damnit Veras

  • Brendan

    Just… wow.

  • Manatee Community College

    Veras looking like the new Krazy Kyle for 2009?

  • BigBlueAL

    Beautiful. This bullpen, its feast or famine.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Well, who didn’t see that one coming.

  • Drew

    I really dislike Veras. Sorry for mentioning it every game but my frustration grows..

  • Axl

    I don’t understand how Cliff Lee gets absolutely shelled in 2 outings…and then all of the sudden he’s back to normal against the Yankees today. I’ve been at work so I haven’t been able to see it. Did he look like last year’s Cliff Lee?? Or is it what I think it is and the Yankees just aren’t hitting yet again…
    Same with Sonnanstine…he gets beat up all over the place day in and day out but lately when he faces us we can’t hit him. Same with Guthrie who was shelled beyond belief in Spring Training…I could go on for hours…

    • KW

      he had basically the same line as CC and was just as lucky to only give up one run. It’s not like he was stellar, at all.

    • Drew

      Do you expect Wang to go 1 inning in his next outing?

    • Bill R

      Every team always plays like it is the 7th game of the world series when they play the Yankees.

  • gxpanos

    Wow that’s a bad pitch from Jose.

  • Yankee1010

    Veras, it’s Mark Melancon on line 1. He says he wants to tell you have fun in AAA.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Veras, it’s Mark Melancon Anthony Claggett on line 1. He says he wants to tell you have fun in AAA.

      Fixed. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We still have a few older, more veteran prospects in front of Melancon who can be brought up without requiring a 40-man move.

      • Yankee1010

        I disagree. Claggett isn’t anywhere near Melancon. Melancon is working guys over left and right. I understand the 40 man issue, but is how much longer is that going to keep Melancon in the minors when it’s clear he is dominating down there?

  • Mike

    wow what a fucking shocker. i hate veras.

  • KW

    This just sets it up for a game winning bottom of the 9th hit.

  • BigBlueAL

    Sure play the infield back, with the way the offense is rolling today no need to prevent the run from scoring, its only the 7th inning.

  • Ahinds

    if joba was pitching the 8th inning, then bruney would pitch the 7th and then we would never loose a game .

    • Matt K

      besides the one that the replacment starter pitches

  • AJ

    The Yankees anemic numbers with RISP position today might come back to bite them, especially with this situation. Somehow, Veras needs to make some magic happen.

  • Axl

    Jose Veras had like 9 strike outs in his first 5 innings in Spring Training if I remember correctly…then the real season comes up and it’s time to bunker down…

  • kSturnz

    wow melancon, 2 batters, 2 strikeouts; keeping it going

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    That umpire is such an asshole.

    • gxpanos

      Shoulda been strike 3. But you dont get the calls when you dont throw strikes.

  • Christopher

    Veras is pretty awful, but he has been squeezed a bit.

    • Yankee1010

      I can’t see the game, but I’m going to assume that Veras hasn’t made things incredibly difficult for the ump, based on his track record.

      Well, the bright side is that this hopefully gets Veras out of a trusted role and they will not hesitate to send him down.

  • Drew

    What else is new? Veras sucks.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Great, just great. Ump doesn’t want to call strikes and we have to lose because of that.

    • Drew

      I wouldn’t say we have lost. Umm its the top of the 7th. I think games go 9 innings, I could be wrong though.

  • Jasper

    I have no idea why this man still has a spot on our roster. He walks the world and when he does throw a fastball, it gets hit. While I support every single man in pinstripes, the moment I see this guy on the mound, I cringe and can’t help but be pissed.

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

    I bet Girardi uses Marte for one damn hitter.

  • Swisher’s Evil Empire

    Joba to the Pen, and I’m serious

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Still mind-numbingly stupid.

      No, Jose Veras allowing two runs here does not make it any smarter. Nothing will make it any smarter. Nothing.

    • A.D.

      He wouldn’t even be in this game.

    • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

      “You can’t fix stupid.”

      Even IF Joba were in the ‘pen, he’d only pitch the 8th inn WITH A LEAD. So VerASS still would’ve sucked today genius.

    • Drew

      How about we get move CC to the pen. His strong 5 2/3 is obviously pointless. He would serve us much better in the pen.

    • http://forums.projectcovo.com/images/smilies/e6omir.gif Expired Milk

      and if Joba gave up two runs as a reliever?

    • Swisher’s Evil Empire

      Yeah, look, the pen just gave up 9 RUNS! It doesn’t matter if Joba would’ve pitching this inning, the fact that he moves everyone except Mo’ an inning forward changes the game alone. How many of these games do you guys need to prove it?

      BTW, if he can affect the outcome of 80+ games, especially in the A.L east, then it’s definitely a good move, especially when considering the fact that he’s on pitch limits and might be sharing some starts with Phil Hughes, oh wait, Phil Hughes? Maybe he can be our fifth starter?

  • Mike

    veras is complete fuckin garbage. thats the game. we’ll strand 3 or 4 more the final 3 innings and that will be that.

  • Axl

    I hate our bullpen every year…it’s the same old story. Some random bum who one of the managers has a soft spot for gets thrown in there constantly and gets beaten around like a rag doll everytime at least it seems…then you look at their numbers at the end of the year and they’re not great but they’re mediocre…doesn’t make sense…it’s the times like these I guess…

    • jon

      Did you watch the yankees last year? our bullpen was one of the best last year

      but dont let facts get in the way of bind hate

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      It doesn’t make sense because the human memory is selective and emotional.

      You tend to ignore the good work the bullpen does the frequent times they don’t allow runs, but focus on the infrequent times they do allow runs. That’s why you feel like the bullpen is weaker than it actually is.

      WE. ARE. FINE. This does not change the fact that our bullpen is in fact still a strength and not a weakness.

      • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

    Sure Veras sucks. Everybody not named Girardi knows that. That being said, he struck out Peralta and the ump just didn’t want to call it.

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

    Man, if you’re going to hit someone get your money’s worth.

  • Russell NY

    “we’ll strand 3 or 4 more the final 3 innings and that will be that.”

    I’m saying bases loaded for the next 3 innings, every time with nobody out. And no runs will score.

  • Christopher

    Oh just awful, there’s the ball game.

  • Mike

    nice fucking game against the 2-6 indians after yesterday. i knew it was too good to be true.

  • AJ

    Looks like a huge inning for the Indians. The Yankees didn’t do it so far with RISP. The Indians are getting most of their runners home. Looking like a rough day for the ‘pen.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      He’s NOT COMING.

      He’s not on the 40-man, and there’s two other high-quality arms who are on the 40-man that we’d call up before him for that purpose.

      This “CALL UP MELANCON NOW” concept is really starting to bug me.

      • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

        i hope igawa isnt one of those arms

      • Yankee1010

        Exactly when would it be OK to call him up then? He’s going to need a spot on the 40 man at some point. Claggett and Jackson are not better than Melancon. Not close. At what point of the year are you proposing that it’s OK to put him on the 40 man? I’m all for 40 man issues and developing the kids, but the goal is to win at the big league level and Melancon is the goods. He has to be added at some point. I’m just asking when you propose to do that.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          After I’ve had a look at Jackson and Claggett to see how good they really are.

          Certainly not before the ASB. No need for Melancon before then.

  • Axl

    Our bullpen last year was a fluke. It’s a bunch of no name guys who ended up performing pretty well last year. Gambling on them doing the same exact thing again was incredibly stupid. I wouldn’t be surprised if the bullpen is like this for the rest of the season (outside of Rivera and sometimes Bruney)

    • Joop

      We get it. You don’t like the bullpen. Stop posting every two god damn second.

    • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

      MOST good ‘pens are “no name guys”. Relievers are VERY volatile from year to year in general (with Mo and few others being the EXCEPTION to the proven rule). This is why we have MANY arms in AAA. RELAX!

  • Jasper

    Fuck man… You gotta at least throw strikes and let the defense play… well… defense.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Hey at least we have Marte for what, 2 more years?!

  • BigBlueAL

    I know there has been alot of stuff written about the camera being behind the net behind home plate, but I havent really noticed it much. Maybe cause its a day game you dont notice it much.

    Ill tell you one thing, dont know how many of you have seen the behind the plate view in the new Nationals Stadium, but that is horrible. The view is so high above the field its pathetic.

    Well at least Sizemore is on my fantasy team. Dont know why I wanted Marte to face him in the 6th….

    I am so mad right now. THe bullpen looks pathetic today. Veras is a piece of shit. Walking the leadoff guy on 4 pitches is INEXCUSABLE in a tie ball game. Bring on Mark Melanon

    did i mention that ronan tynan is completely cheesy, and pains my ears? and now he has artsy german architect glasses. somebody please boo this guy along with our bullpen….

  • Christopher

    At least Veras comes cheap, Marte is getting paid a lot to serve up walks, hit batsmen and grand slams.

  • The Lodge

    Hey – if they put up a nine-spot, so can we, right?

    • Drew

      No, didn’t you read above, the games over through 6 and a half.

          I watch baseball on a TV not on an excel spreadsheet buddy.

          • Mike

            I was being a smartass. I can understand you’re confidence in our offense today though. I mean scoring 1 through 6 with 3 guys on every inning is good. We should have no problem scoring 8 more.

    • Axl

      Wrong. Not with this hitting. when you have 4 pitchers on your team in your batting order…odds are not in your favor…

      • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

        really? name em

  • Axl

    Hahahaha. This game is absolutely embarrassing. This 2-6 team is coming in the brand new Yankee Stadium and smearing the Yankees faces into the dirt.

    How about this for trivia in the future? Which team beat the Yankees in their grand home opening? What was their record? LOL

    This is ridiculous.

    • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

      Dude, are you really judging a team based on their record in the second week of the season?

    • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

      your ridiculous. losses happen you do know that right?

    • Tampa Yankee

      Then stop watching. It’s fair weather fans like you that cause the rest of this country to hate Yankee fans. I’m sure if it was the other way around you’d be shouting as loud as you can that the Yankees are the best. You’re a f’n douche.

  • dkidd

    mohegan sun is to foxwoods as veras is to to bruney

  • BigBlueAL

    Its a good thing the Yankees didnt open the new Yankee Stadium as bad as the Mets opened up Citi Field.

  • Evan S

    Woof.

    Where is Melancon when you need him?

    This is the Baseball Mo’s way of giving JOBA! the first Victory at The New Yankee Stadium. ;)

  • AJ

    In the last 10 games, the pen has blown two games (the game in KC being the other one.) You can even go as far to say three, if you consider Coke giving up the homer in Baltimore. A 70-80% hold rate just won’t do it.

    Not the way the Yanks wanted to christen the new digs. But there’s still 152 games left, and plenty games to erase this performance.

    Who knows, maybe the Yanks will come back…

  • Swisher’s Evil Empire

    Incase anyone misses it:
    Yeah, look, the pen just gave up 9 RUNS! It doesn’t matter if Joba would’ve pitching this inning, the fact that he moves everyone except Mo’ an inning forward changes the game alone. How many of these games do you guys need to prove it?
    BTW, if he can affect the outcome of 80+ games, especially in the A.L east, then it’s definitely a good move, especially when considering the fact that he’s on pitch limits and might be sharing some starts with Phil Hughes, oh wait, Phil Hughes? Maybe he can be our fifth starter?

      • Swisher’s Evil Empire

        Fuck you, fucking tard

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

          Stop the personal attacks. One warning.

    • Yankee1010

      Incorrect. Joba belongs in the rotation. Not debatable.

    • EDUB

      Very true. But what about putting Burnett out there for the 8th inning and using Joba in the 7th. CC would be absolutely filthy as the long reliever.

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

      The most egregious offense from B-Jobbers is that they think that Joba is unhittable in the bullpen and will allow no runs.

  • KW

    look at melky! workign counts

  • Count Zero

    Wow that was painful even in sporadic monitoring via Gameday at work. Glad I didn’t stay home to watch that.

    • Statler

      Is ritual murder of the bullpen followed by ritual suicide an option?

  • Alexa- #1 Yankee fan

    on the bright side we still have 9 outs to work with.
    I dont think this game will end 9-1

    • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

      It most certainly won’t. It’s already 10-1.
      Math = Fail.

    • Axl

      You’re right…it’s going to end 10-1

  • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

    Is Melky wearing 53 because he missed Abreu?
    Melky’s D + Bobby’s bat = 1 good OF

    • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

      melky + abreu super player>>>>gardner

  • Axl

    What’s funny is that we have 7 hits and 1 run in the entire game…the Indians in that INNING had 5 hits and 9 runs LOL

    What a F’ing joke

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

      If you mention the 7 hits + 1 run thing one more time, you’re banned. You don’t need to say it every 2 minutes, we got the point the first time.

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        Hey Axl, how many hits and runs do we have in the entire game again? I’m not baiting…

    • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

      fail.

    • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

      PLEASE do it again!

  • Stryker

    Don’t worry, the baseball gods wil take care of the Yanks. They always do.

    we shall see mike, we shall see!

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    So I knew Veras was gonna regress but I don’t think I expected this. I do, however, have more faith in Marte to right the ship.

  • Nate

    I had to do a doubletake when I saw the score… how did it go from 1-1 to 10-1?!!? What happened bullpen?!

    • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

      Farnsworthitis.

  • Jimmy

    Ship Marte and Veras back to where they came from

  • Jasper

    Lets get the rally going… 4 in this inning… 3 in the 8th… 3 in the 9th to win it.

    • Jasper

      or not…

    • A.D.

      1…5…4, still works!

  • Brendan

    Tomorrow will be better. It has to be, I am going.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    You just know we are not going to score here, even with 2 on and no outs.

    • Drew

      You + Nonsensical comments= FAIL

  • Diony

    Move Burnett to the pen.

  • Drew

    This Yankee hate from our own fans is really the embarassing thing. Not this game.

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      Yeah. I really hope no one stops by these game threads because this is an embarrassment to our fanbase.
