      Changeup. They said that about 15 times on the broadcast.

      • southernyankeefan

        sound isn’t working on my computer.

  • Bill R

    C’mon robbie!

  • whozat

    Driven? Only Michael Kay in Fenway would call that “driven”. It was popped about 250 feet from the plate.

  • Matt

    Where has Joba’s control been this season? 3 walks…. 29 strikes, 24 balls, that’s horrible

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Look at the K zone for Lester and compare that with Joba. The ump has giving more calls to Lester.

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

      Well one of those walks was intentional.

    75 pitches in 4 innings. I love it.

    Two walks for Jose Molina? Awesomeness.

    lol 2 walks for molina. please K again ransom. atleast give us a chance with DJ

        I think they call it a strike. At least that’s what they do in college.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    And by Cody contributing that means he stikeouts so we don’t go into the DP.

    Can we just take the automatic out for Cody and let Jeter hit?

    • AJ

      Ok Cody, great way to shut me up there.

    Awesome comments by Levine: “Don Garber discussing Yankee attendance must be a joke,” Levine said Friday. “We draw more people in a year than his entire league does in a year. If he ever gets Major League Soccer into the same time zone as the Yankees, we might take him seriously.

        53 or 59?

        • Mike

          looked at it quick. its 53. 29 strikes

      Its good to have Gameday open even if your watching the game.

    Joba, can you actually hit a major-league caliber hitter next time?

    Damnit, right on the pad.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Another DP?

  • Mike

    atleast drill someone who is capable of hitting

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Wow. Joba needs to get some PFP fast.

  • Slu

    Joba is not going to keep getting out of trouble all night. And hitting Tek is like walking Molina…twice.

      Or maybe he’ll keep getting lucky…

    Wow.

  • Drew

    Thats that shit

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Joba just has no idea where his FB is going.

    • Drew

      LOL

      • Brazilian Yankee

        He’s throwing strikes mostly with his slider..even the DP they botched was a slider in the zone… his FB is all over.

        I’m happy he got out of yet another jam, but that doesn’t mean he’s pitching good tonight.

        • Drew

          So he’s pitching bad? He’s gotten about 6 DP balls.

        • Zack

          they’re not really hitting him hard either- effectively wild i guess you could say

  • dkidd

  • Babe’s Ghost

    Me thinks this will be Lester’s last inning

    • BJ

      At the same point, once his pitch count is high, you’ve got to capitalize on the hittable pitches before he’s pulled… If it was way out of the zone, that’s one thing, but if you make good contact its fine. Not everyone has to be Swisher.

      • BJ

        whoa how did this get here…

    Teix, please hit the ball kind of hard.

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

    Even though he’s struggling to throw strikes, you gotta love how Joba’s battling and not just laying down. Pure grit.

      indeed

    • Slu

    alrigh time for a 1 2 3 inning from joba.

    • Drew

      like last inning? ;)

  • John

    Robbie of last year..swinging at 1st pitches and getting out

    • Drew

      He got good wood on it. Give me a break.

  • V

    Cano’s gotta swing at the first pitches SOMETIMES, to keep pitchers honest. His approach is 10x better this season than last, however.

  • Alex

    It really is hard to believe that Pedroia is as good a contact hitter as he is. His swing is ALL over the place

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

    Ayayay Joba, stop walking people.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Come on Joba, seriously? Throw strikes man, you have a defense behind you.

  • Chip

    Hopefully Ortiz doesn’t strikeout this time and puts it right into the shift

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

    Uh-oh.

  • Matt-Pitt

    This is what gets you in trouble, leadoff walks… Another jam to get out of it. Sooner or later they are gonna take advantage, too good of a team not too.

  • Drew

    C’mon Joba! You got this bro!

  • V

    Blegh – Ortiz CAN’T HIT THE HEAT, and you throw him a hanging curve?

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

    Hanger. In years past Ortiz puts that one in the people, now it barely makes it over the first baseman’s head.

  • John

    No me gusta

  • Chip

    This has the potential to get really ugly really fast. Joba just can’t hit a corner to save his life

    • Brazilian Yankee

      forget hitting a corner, he’s barely hitting the strike zone tonight..

  • Drew

    I find it funny how negative many of you are about Joba. He’s battling, he’s not trying to walk people.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      They’re B-Jobbers.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      nobody said he’s walking people on purpose, they are just saying he’s command has been terrible and that will get him in trouble eventually..

      • Drew

        I didn’t say anyone said he was walking people on purpose. I said people are reacting towards him negatively all game. He throws a strike and they hit it, people bitch, he throws a ball and they don’t hit it, people bitch. He’s giving us a great start, bottom line.

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

    Well, one out is better than none.

  • Drew

    WTFuck Jeter…

  • Matt-Pitt

    Need another DP ball here frm Drew… C’mon Joba, you got this.

  • AJ

    Let’s have some execution here boys! That’s two double play balls that have been misplayed.

  • Mike

  • AJ

    Wow. Joba is walking a tight rope, but he’s looking like vintage Chien-Ming Wang right now. Four double plays? Not bad young one, not bad.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Wow, this is unreal. Joba, you are getting really lucky. We need some more offense, ASAP.

  • Slu

    Crazy!

    Heh, I hurt my wrist clapping so damn hard on that Nancy Drew DP.

  • Sweet Dick Willie

    Joba obviously doesn’t have his good stuff. Been flirting with disaster all night.

    Should Joe go Alie, Veras, Bruney & Mo to close this out?

    • Chip

      No, we should go Joba through seven, Bruney, Mo

      • Sweet Dick Willie

        No guarantee Joba gets through 7. He has dodged a bullet in every inning but one.

        At some point, his luck may run out.

    • Slu

      Just got through the lefties, so I’d say so.

  • Chip

    It’s just amazing to me that we’re winning this game. I mean Lester has 5 more strikeouts and one less walk than Joba yet is on the hook for the loss at the moment. Looks like Joba might even go seven!

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Damn. Well struck, Melky.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Melky is smoking the ball.

  • Alex

    WOW Melky is really on fire.

  • Drew

    Kay sucks, where’s Max Kellerman?

  • Chip

    I’m pretty surprised that Lester is out there for another inning. I guess it is against the AAA portion of the Yankee lineup

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Hey Molina’s doing good. 1 H and 2 BB’s.

    • Drew

      Your AAA portion is having a hell of a game today.

  • Manimal

    Melky went to the deepest part of Fenway. He still worked a 5 pitch at at bat.

  • teh melky teh HOFer

    teh melky is really in teh zone right now. just missed.

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

    Hava Molina. On base three times.

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Molina’s been on base three times.

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

    Hava Molina!

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

    Oof, Rangers down 4-0 with 13:00 left in the 3rd.

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

      Yeah, thankfully it’s only Game 5.

      • Tony

        I would say Tortorella put his job on the line with the Avery move, but he’s only been around for 2 months and no one would care if he left anyway. Either way, it’s asinine.

        • Tony

          And all he did now was make the guy he hates (Avery) look even more important. Good call.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    What the hell is that on Manny Delcarmen’s face?

  • Mike

    Molina > Posada

    • southernyankeefan

      That comment = blasphamy

  • Thomas A. Anderson

    If Boson loses, Sox fans will be crying about that phantom out at 2nd base.

    And it’s why Instant Replay should be extended to the bases, not just homers or far/foul. Imagine the outrage if Boston got that call at Yankee Stadium. Oof.

  • BJ

    Molina is really bringing it tonight

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Cody Ransom is a buzzkill and I haven’t even started drinking yet.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Back to Earth already huh Ransom?

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

    Whatever, Ransom, you’ve done your good deed for the rest of the month.

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

    Ayayay Cody.

    Guess the Yanks wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

  • teh melky teh HOFer

    Hava Molina. At least our black holes are productive.

    • teh melky teh HOFer

      Spoke too soon I guess.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Knew that was coming sometime this game.

    C’mon Joba, have a clean inning for once.

    • Drew

      eh…

  • Drew

    That’s alright Cody! C’mon Joba!

  • BJ

    There’s our Cody

  • Chip

    Damn you Cody Ransom, at least make him throw you a strike and further run up his PC. Lester has to get hurt this year the way they pitch him

  • Manimal

    Seriously Ransom, just stand there with your bat. Thats what Mark Bellhorn did, worked for him for a couple of years.

  • Mike

    theres the ransom we have come to know and love. atleast we get top of the order next inning

  • John

    Ransom being Ransom

  • Chip

    I’d love about a 5 pitch inning outta Joba here

  • Slu

    Somebody better be warming up in the pen

  • Buffalo Ed

    molina should start full time and DH

  • Drew

    By the comments on here, you’d think Joba gave up 6 hits off the Monster.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      More like 6 HR’s based on the comments.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Man, Joba seems to be 2-0 on every batter to start an at bat.

  • Buffalo Ed

    and play third and center

  • Manimal

    18 LOB for the sox and 13 for the yankees.

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

      That can’t be right, there’s one out in the sixth. You can only leave three batters on in an inning, so if the Sox left the bases juiced in each of the first five innings, they only have 15 LOB.

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

      7 LOB for both

  • mortl

    Hey so does anyone know why berroa hasnt been called up? hes defense is suspect but hes better offensively than pena and ransom… whats the case here?

    • Chip

      He’s bad, that’s why he’s not up in the bigs

    • Alex

      40 man roster spot

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

    Somebody please tell Kay to shut the fuck up.

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

    For a moment the camera angle made me think that was gone. NOT a good feeling…

    • Manimal

      Have you noticed that the first week of the season, you think everything is a homerun? Its like your not used to watching baseball after the winter break. Might just be me lol.

  • Chip

    Nice of Bay to swing at ball 4

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

    If Greg Maddux, Ken Griffey Jr. and Albert Pujols aren’t all unanimous votes…

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

      If Ripken and Gwynn weren’t, what do you expect?

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

        The only places where someone gets 100% of any vote is Communist Cuba and Saddam Hussien’s Iraq.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

      Tom Seaver got 98.8%, the highest tally in history. That means 1.2% didn’t think he should go in.

      WHO

      CARES

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

    Melky, you idiot.

    • Chip

      What’d he do?

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

    I hope someone’s warming…

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Melky…what the hell was that?

    • Drew

      Just trying to turn a double off the wall into a single/out.

  • southernyankeefan

    that was a meatball

  • Dave

    Pretty sure Kay just jinxed with the 0-8 talk

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

    RAB just appeared on the YES ticker again.

  • AJ

    Two hard hit balls here. C’mon Joba, settle it down and put some of those balls on the ground.

    I’d love to see Varitek strike out right now on a sweet little curve. I love when he looks silly at the plate.

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

      Three hard hit balls.

      Get your mind out of the gutter.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Another DP here from Green??

  • Tony

    How many extra outs/bases has the defense given up tonight?

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Joba, Tek is supposed to be an automatic out. Wtf is up with the black holes today?

  • Manimal

    Another chance for a GIDP

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Wow. Uggla took Myers to the upper deck in Dolphins Stadium. Damn that was a shot.

    Please, Mo, another DP.

  • Alex

    ugh all these jams are making my head hurt. I’m definitely gonna fall rite asleep tonight.

  • Chip

    Nick Green double play…….please

  • Drew

    Am I a bad person for wanting Joba to take out Green’s leg and end his season?

  • southernyankeefan

    Does he have another DP in him???

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

    Guess the DP well ran dry.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Kay jinxes everything.

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Nick Fucking Green? Christ alfuckingmighty.

    • Alex

      Sox fans probably said “Cody Fucking Ransom wth” a few innings ago.

      • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

        Word.

  • Brooklyn Ed

    Joba is starting to hang his pitches.

  • Chip

    Well, you can’t always get them I guess :(

  • Matt-Pitt

    Nick Green couldn’t hit for us but he all of a sudden he becomes a hitting machine in Boston, figures.

  • Drew

    Um. I’m not to happy about this.

  • Slu

    Luck has run out. Everyone knew it was coming.

    Now Coke is up…Albie should have started this inning.

    • Tony

      No, he shouldn’t have.

      • Sweet Dick Willie

        Well Joba sure shouldn’t have. He labored through 5.

        • Tony

          His pitch count was fine, and if Molina could catch it would have been 2-0

        • Slu

          Right, if not Albie, someone else. Joba was lucky to get through 5 with a lead. Bring in a reliever and give him a chance for a win.

  • Chip

    Looks like we’ll be in the bullpen soon

  • AJ

    Ugh. When you leave fastballs up in the zone, they’re going to get hit. Nick Green did exactly the same thing as his last at bat – just shoot it back up there. Good night for Joba. He walked a tight rope all night, and only gave up two runs.

    Alright Phil, you’ve looked good in the previous outings. Let’s get a big out and stop the damage.

  • http://thechuckknoblog.com TheChuckKnoblog

    GO Coke

  • Chip

    I assume that barring another DP, this will be a one-batter show for Coke

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

    This should be a Marte spot. 7th inning, top of the order, two of the next three batters are lefties…

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

      6th inning, my bad.

  • Mike

    Greinke shutout streak over

    • Mike

      scratch that. it was unearned.

  • stuart

    so far Joba and Cc have literally stunk.

    tons of BB and very few K’s.

    that is Nick Green 2 for 3…

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

      I assume you have access to the clubhouse since you know Joba and CC literally stink.

    • jonathan

      Add the 7BB that AJ put up last start to:
      Headline for tomorrow: “Red Sox Walk (BB) away with win”

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

        AJ’s last start has absolutely nothing to do with this game.

    • Chip

      He gave up 1 earned run (so far) in 5.2 innings in Fenway when he didn’t have his best stuff. You have to be happy with that

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

      >”Literally stunk”

      OMG U CAN TOTES SEE THE STINK LINES COMING OUTTA THEIRE BODIES amirite guys??

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Where is Wang on that list? CC ALWAYS gets rocked in April. He lost a lot in April 2007 and he still won the CY Young. Joba isn’t exactly terrible, he needs to get his fastball faster though. It isn’t going to come back in 3 starts.

  • Chip

    Well, at least we have the top of our lineup starting out next inning

  • Drew

    I’d rather give Joba the chance to win or lose, but I’m no manager.

    • Sweet Dick Willie

      If he was pitching well, I agree, but he obviously didn’t have his good stuff tonight.

  • Alex

    Gameday pitch fX had 1-1 pitch right in the zone.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I’d like to see Albie in there to get that GB and get out of the inning.

  • Tony

    Is Kay a B-Jobber?

    • Alex

      It would make sense.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      No he’s not. At least I don’t think so.

  • Drew

    Pedroia likes these young pitchers

  • Chip

    I’m quite shocked Coke is still in to pitch to Pedroia

  • Matty Ice

    Weird question, but is Nick Swisher wearing Xavier Nady’s wristbands? Check it out when he comes up.

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

    Yay.

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

    Just an observation

    What on earth does it take for Joba to actually get a decision?

  • Drew

    Great job Coke. Good call Joe.
