  • Angry Again Axl

    Remember what I said a little while ago. Mariano Rivera will be fine…once our lineup comes up a few times without scoring…our crappy bullpen will inevitably blow the game. Listen, it may sound pessimistic…but its realistic.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      I’d like to teach you something. If the bullpen was all Joba’s, and had a 3.00 ERA, it would give up a run every third inning. This is the bullpen’s 4th inning. Eventually, something will give, even in the best pens.

    So Bruney is definitely not available. Is there a reason for this???? I mean he pitched last night but not on Monday, pitched Sunday but not on Saturday so what gives??

    he pitched an inning or so yesterday, but they have off tomorrow so i don’t see why not.

    Heh, I remember when none of us would have wanted Bruney in the game…

    Edwar, they’re called strikes.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    This sucks, and even if we do get out of this inning, how the hell are we supposed to hit a guy named Outman?!

  • Joey H

    Now. Wow. Why Veras? Why not just leave Edwar in for the change ups to Giambi?

    • Klemy

      Because anyone can throw away, away, away, to Giambi and let him roll over one to the right side.

      • Klemy

        Haha. A walk. There’s a shocker.

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

      Because Edwar started both hitters off 2-0 and he doesn’t have the fastball to challenge a power hitter in a fastball count like Jose Veras does.

  • Angry Again Axl

    The good part about all of this is that we don’t have anymore bullpen so if Oakland scores…what are you gonna do…

    • Matt M.

      SWISHER!!!

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/00mwbIM15ofMv/340x.jpg Mike Pop

      Well, with your logic. Molina could pitch as well as all our relievers except for Mo.

      • pat

        Just stop responding to this asshole he obviously has no other human interaction and this is his only outlet.

  • matt b

    I don’t generally ever want to see Veras in a leverage spot, but I think this is the right move–bases empty, he only needs one out, better chance of keeping the ball in the park. Also, if he walks Giambi, I know the As have already used Davis, so maybe a situation where the runner isn’t scoring on a double.

    That said, I thought Edwar has generally been nasty against lefties.

    Pre-approval, let’s see if it works.

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

      Edwar has a career OPSA of .818 vs. lefties, Jose has a .755.

    • matt b

      Well the anticipated walk of the first guy he faces, nothing to see there.

      Now here’s a choice–anyone consider pitching very very carefully to Holliday to get Raja, even if means putting a runner in SP?

  • http://www.thefowlballs.com Jimmy Dugan

    Get Swisher loose.

  • Alex from The Bronx

    I wonder if the Giambino heard of “Just For Men”.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Man… At least Edwar threw strikes…

  • Matt M.

    good god veras

  • BigBlueAL

    Shocking result. Well at least it wasnt a HR.

    I just got home can anyone give me a quick fill in on what has happened?

    • Drew

      Quick? that is a tough order.
      Basically, CC got the lead then invariably gave the lead right back. Now were in the 11th.

      • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

        Alright thats a good start, basically we scored first, CC gave it up, and then we came back?

        • Drew

          Everytime.. Joe extended him a little too long with a two run lead in the 7th, he gave up 2 and we’re at 7-7.

          • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

            Alright thanks

    I would never swing against Veras.

    Holliday on my fantasy team = mistake

  • matt b

    Alright, I liked the Veras move (as outlined above), but man, I can’t say I necessarily let him throw a fastball that got plenty of plate to Halliday doen 2-0 with Raja on deck (not sure whether Raja would bat or not, I know nothing of the A’s bench).

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/00mwbIM15ofMv/340x.jpg Mike Pop

    This is a game that they have to win in my opinion. CC hurt them today. You score 7 runs with your ace on the hill and are in the 11th. I’m not saying I hate CC, I just thought if you told me the Yanks would score 7 today. The game would be ours and rather easily. But, that’s why you gotta love/hate baseball.

    When he gets ahead, as he did on every batter this inning, he is untouchable.

    • dkidd

      nasty slider. don’t give up on him, joe!

  • Drew

    Dude maybe Veras needs to throw more pitches in the pen before coming in. His control was so much better that half inning.

    • A.D.

      Bring him in for full innings instead of mid inning, which Joe G did with him last year.

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

      Or maybe you and some others just overreacted to a slumping relief pitcher ;)

      • Drew

        Well… He throws a lot of balls when his command is off. But when he’s on, he’s good.

  • BigBlueAL

    Melky walk-off this inning I called it first.

    Wow, that’s a dumb fucking move by Bob Geren.

  • Drew

    Ha, bad move for the A’s!

  • giselle

    I’m ready for some Robbie walk-off greatness…!

    No respect for Cano.

  • Devin

    nice shot down the right field line to win it

  • Arin

    Robbie, make me regret not starting you!

    I like how our boy Axl dissapears when the Yanks have a good thing going.

      Let’s count our blessings!

    Go to hell, Giese.

  • BigBlueAL

    I cant stand this team….

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=15305165&ref=profile Doug

      Uh the team is 5-12 with RISP today. What more do you want?

      • BigBlueAL

        Just venting….

  • John

    Its cuz Jorge is a true clutch Yankee

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

    Fucking Kay gets excited over every damn fly ball.

  • Sal

    Ridiculous

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    This is so @$@# frustrating. I have work to do and the Yankees are running out of pitchers.

    • Yanks Fan

      Swisher is still available right?

  • BigBlueAL

    Look at Kay trying to cover his ass with that awful call on Cano’s flyout.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    This game will never end. Even Dan Giese is pitching good today.

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

    Michael, I swear to God, use that “little girl with the curl” saying one more fucking time…

    6.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K

    Quality start put together by the bullpen.

  • Joey H

    Hes at 34 pitches. We need to end this fucking thing already.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/00mwbIM15ofMv/340x.jpg Mike Pop

      He’s “Marte-ing” him.

  • Drew

    CB buckner= Jackass

    • giselle

      hey now, CB Buckner got me free tickets to last night’s game. I’ve never met him before, but he is a good man.

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

    Where did that pitch miss? O-Cab should be walked back to the dugout.

    • Yankee1010

      According to Gameday, it missed the center of the plate. But only by a half an inch.

      • BigBlueAL

        LMAO

    • whozat

      I’ve been watching the game on gameday and the espn thing, and either pitchFX is WAAAAAAAAAAY off, or the ump is a total shmucktard.

      I’ll be interested to see the ball/strike plot after this game.

  • Drew

    It’s a bird, it’s a plane, It’s!! Jeter! No wait

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

    Nice catch by the kid.

  • Sal

    Pena should play everyday

  • BigBlueAL

    Well Veras was a starter when he was with Tampa Bay in the minors right????

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

      Yeah, but his last non-rehab start came in 2004.

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

    Ramiro Pena: taking a shot at Jeter.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    Nice catch Peña!

  • Nate

    the yanks bullpen must be pretty stretched now…

    C.B. Bucknor has the most awesomest K call. I remember one game against the Red Sox he was literally throwing right hooks.

    • Drew

      Lol, yea we had a Naked gun reference earlier

    • Joey H

      Yeah he called Julio Lugo a “Stupid bastard” When he argued when getting called out on strikes.

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

        Well, fuck that wife-beating douche, I have no sympathy.

  • Sal

    Veras staving off demotion

  • Drew

    Jose did a number on his ERA today.

  • Joey H

    Who ever straightened Veras’ stuff out better have a talk with CMW.

    Could we be headed for a milestone gentlemen?

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

      Asterick because of the extra innings. The only record that means anything is the 9-inning record.

  • Joey H

    Okay this is starting to get tedious. We probably won’t win this game if we don’t do it now.

    • Drew

      I’ve read this somewhere before…

      • Joey H

        We have a rookie coming in next inning. That the motive behind my comment.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Remeber when Melky hit a home run? Man those were good days.

    • BJ

      Happy days are here again

  • Drew

    You see that dude bitch out on that foul pop?

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

      Heh, seriously.

  • John

    That error by Damon and the no runs after having bases loaded and no outs is killing us

  • Jake K.

    Is Arod available to pinch hit today?

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

    Man, they better win after playing this long.

  • pat

    Aight cool, a quick out, sets up the dp nicely.

    Melky Cabrera. Pimp.

      he should still have the job, he’s better.

      If you are going to insist on going there in this joyous moment, all I can do is point to last April. But let’s not ruin it. :)

        Let us all remember how good he was in April ’08 too.

        As it should.

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

        I think that was a shot at Axl.

    Oh yeah where is that jagg off who rooted against them all day? *THE BIRD*.

    • pat

      and a big DEGENRATION X SUCK IT from me

    • Yankee1010

      The ledge. But don’t call after him. Maybe he won’t come back.

  • Sal

    Look out Brett

  • Joey H

    Player of the game: Mr. Veras. He had command today boyy.

  • Jamie

    Melky with some face

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    Leche!!!! man, crazy game…Axl can relax now.

  • Patrick

    Anyone see the video of the HR? Just saw it on MLB.com. One thing I must say is that maybe Robby playing better gives Melky confidence and Melky playing better gives Robby confidence. The two of them are great friends (wasn’t there an article about them sharing an apartment or living in the same apartment complex) and I’m sure either one of them gets down when the other struggles. If you saw Robby run out of the dugout and the two of them celebrate, you can tell that what’s good for Melky is also good for Robby Cano. Just a thought.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=15305165&ref=profile Doug

      I guess when this was all over last season, him and Robbie got an apartment together.
