    Urgh Marte in the ‘pen

  • Lanny

    Marte? Ugh

  • Brooklyn Ed

    Teix, what were you swinging at? ugh.

  • Accent Shallow

    How do you waste a Molina hit?

    • JobaWockeeZ

      I blame it on Pedroia.

  • Carl

    :(

  • Dave

    This whole situation makes me a sad panda

  • Flynn

    way to earn that $$$$ Tex.. 2 more lob, that makes 972 for the game

    • Steve H

      Yes. The 8 year contract came down to 1 at bat in April. What a bum.

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

        OVER-RAY-TED!!!

  • Lanny

    2 games in a row they’ve had the bases loaded and nobody out and failed to score.

    How dont you trust Alby against Ellsbury in the 8th?

    • Thomas A. Anderson

      How does Rivera give up a homerun to Jason Bay? It happens.

      • Steve H

        Girardi obviously told him to give up the HR. It’s all Girardi’s fault.

    • A.D.

      Doesn’t really matter because Mo came in earlier it didn’t make him give up a hit to Youk or a HR to Bay.

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

    Ayayay, it was ball four.

    Now our hopes rest with Marte…

  • Thomas A. Anderson

    Why is it that I feel like I’ve seen this game the last 5 seasons in a row?

    Game in Fenway in April
    Yankees in the lead
    Rivera Blows Save
    Sox win in extras
    Yankees fans panic

    • Flynn

      How many Ws titles have we seen in that span?

      • Joe D.

        Damn right, Flynn. How dare the Yankees go five years without making the World Series. Fucking losers. I mean, any team that doesn’t make the WS five years in a row might as well just close up shop and put itself to sleep. Disband the Yankees, the franchise is done.

      he’s out of the game

    • Steve H

      Might want to rethink that one.

    • A.D.

      He’s out of the game.

      • tim randle

        so?! you didnt hear me…i said NICK SWISHER!!!

        • A.D.

          fair enough

    • Drew

      HAHA

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Double fail by Nick Green there.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Even if we escape this inning, we still have to score, something this team doesn’t really know how to do, and then we have to pray Edwar or Veras or Jackson or whoever is left at the pen can close this out against the top of their order. Seems pretty damn hard to me.

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

      This team doesn’t know how to score? Really?

      • tim randle

        bases loaded no outs.

      • Joey H

        Dude the retarded comments on here are just over the top. Where is the fan faith?

    • Steve H

      Says the guy who thought the Pavano game was a loss after 2 innings.

      • Steve H

        Gee, I really thought Brazillian Yankee would reply here with his head tucked between his legs and admit that he was wrong……..guess I was wrong.

      • A.D.

        and that the 14 inning game was over when CC gave up the 3 run shot.

  • Sweet Dick Willie

    Nick Green – exposed!

  • Jake H

    I hate paps. Nick Green has killed us tonight too.

  • Albert = Machine

    That was a strike, dickface

  • Joey H

    You have to love the hope in the minds of the Yankee “fans.” My god. Such spoiled little brats. Let’s think positive and hope for the best instead of preparing for a negative outcome so you can say “DAMN I KNEW IT!1!1!!11!”

    • Steve H

      The people who act like that are like the Sox fans before they won. It’s pitiful.

      • Joey H

        It’s aggravating. Oh well, we have a ball game to win here. ‘Eff them.

  • Alex S

    who’s due up in the 11th?

    • BigBlueAL

      Posada, Gardner, Cano.

      • Steve H

        Sounds like runs.

  • BigBlueAL

    Well at lest if they go to the 11th Papelbon is done. Of course the Yankees dont exactly have Murderer’s Row up either.

  • Joey H

    Why is Swisher out of the game?

    • Manimal

      Gardner took over center and Melky moved over to right

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

      Defense, i’d assume.

      • Joey H

        No I wasn’t sure if anything out of the ordinary went down since I didn’t notice he got yanked.

  • Steve in MN

    Ha Martes ERA has already dropped almost 3 points

  • Jake H

    ump is now squeezing marte.

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

    Okay, this is kind of bothering me.

    Guys, gals, if the only thing wrong with your life is that Marte is pitching, it is NOT an FML.

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

      You always complain about him too as of late.

  • A.D.

    Stafford signed.

    • Albert = Machine

      He must’ve creamed his pants

  • Sweet Dick Willie

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Marte drilling this little fuck and then striking out Ortiz

  • yankeeswisdom

    if damaso can get us through this….i feel like we can get this game. The boston bullpen after papelshyt is pretty thin. and as for that masturbation moment…I dont see y people get mad at JOBa..Papelshyt just clearly made a gesture that seems to represent him pleasuring his genetils on the pitchers mound.

  • Jim

    Marte’s shoes are gay.

  • Alex S

    nice inning by marte

  • A.D.

    Marte, perhaps back on track.

  • Drew

    Yes Marte! Way to fucking go dude!

  • Accent Shallow

    Boy do I love seeing Pedroia fail.

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

    Ok Marte, you’ve caught my attention.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Shut up Pedroia…

  • http://www.freewebs.com/ps3tf2/ Double-J

    Fuck…Marte? Did he sacrifice a virgin before he came out of the bullpen? He actually pitched great!

      the same ceremony as veras

    Marte with a payback to the midget.

    Impressive inning by Marte.

    That might be the Marte they traded for.

    That was so satisfying. But now this game needs to end so I can not be drinking beer by myself.

    time for gardner to be a hero

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

    Pedroia can’t hit the high outside fastball either.

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

    Ex-Yank Ramon Ramirez on to pitch.

  • A.D.

    Only 1 inning for Paps? Interesting.

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

      He had to work in that one inning, plus you know they’ll need again at some point in this series.

      • A.D.

        Well i was thinking with the lack of pen they have left. Though they could probably have Wake kunckle for awhile if necessary.

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Bunting is stupid: example number one trillion.

    • Evan

      All Gardner does is hit weak grounders and silo home runs. He has a better chance of getting on via the bunt.

      • Steve H

        He wasn’t bunting to get on though.

    Gardner=FAIL

    Nice bunt.

          Yes, just fucking punch me. Please. Pretty please. This sucks.

  • BigBlueAL

    Gardner cant even fuckin bunt. Better steal 2nd now.

  • Joey H

    Joe is getting ridiculous with bunting with slow runners on first. Now Brett needs to steal a bag.

    • Joey H

      For some reason, I am surprised he didn’t swing at that 0-2 pitch.

  • A.D.

    Getting Gardner at first isn’t the worst.

  • Flynn

    AAAA bunt Brett

  • David S

    Brian Bruney headed to NY to get his elbow checked out

  • A.D.

    steal 3rd?

    No way Posada scores on that hit.

  • Jim

    Posada is a slow fuck!

  • Steve in MN

    gardner on first almost = posada at 2nd

  • Alex S

    does the gritster score on a single?

  • BigBlueAL

    Did someone just post Bruney is in NY getting his elbow checked???? FUCK.

    • David S

      yea according to suzyn waldman and ransom pulled a quad

      • Steve H

        oh my goodness gracious!!!

      • Sweet Dick Willie

        At least it’s not an arm problem.

  • Mike

    Melky FTW again?

  • Alex S

    melky better not K on 3 pitches

    • BigBlueAL

      Or on 4 pitches.

      • Alex S

        or 5

  • BigBlueAL

    Molina will drive in the go-ahead run.

  • Albert = Machine

    Gyroball these nuts

  • Capital T

    I thought gardner was fast, why did he stop at 2nd.

    • BigBlueAL

      He is not the Flash.

    C’mon Melk!

    Odd, per Twitter, MLB.com’s Yankees beat writer, Bryan Hoch, said that Brian Bruney was playing cards in the clubhouse at Fenway earlier today, but reports are that he’s back in NYC getting his elbow checked.

    • Joey H

      So….. which one is it?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Terrible bunt.

  • Brooklyn Ed

    Melk, don’t be a hero..BE PATIENT. FIND THE RIGHT PITCH.

    • Brooklyn Ed

      Melk, you could had 3-1 count now.

      • Brooklyn Ed

        wtf.

  • Alex S

    was melky even hustling down the line???

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Who do we have in our bullpen left?

    • Brooklyn Ed

      Veras and Jackson.

    • A.D.

      Veras Edwar SteJax.

    • Tom Zig

      Edwar and SteJax.

  • A.D.

    Goddamnit Melk.

      Its a tie game, not a 20-0 game.

    • Steve in MN

      it’s never just one game when its against the sox

  • Lanny

    Why cant Gardner get down a solid bunt?

    • Flynn

      aaaa player

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

        Incorrect. Bunting sucks.

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

      Cause he is a Yankee.

      Yankees don’t play the game the right way.

      • Lanny

        Even 4A players get down bunts. What good is he up here if he cant bunt?

  • Joey H

    Well now that we lost our 8th inning man. Where the heck do we go from here?

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

      Albie for the 8th?

      • Steve in MN

        looked he was hurt too

      • Joey H

        I like him in the 7th better.

  • Drew

    I guess one good inning out of Marte is not enough..

  • BigBlueAL

    Melky and Gardner = Pathetic.

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

      Sac bunting with a slow runner on second = pathetic.

    • Drew

      Melky made things happen today, Gardner didn’t.

  • Thomas A. Anderson

    All those people who were lauding Melky after that homerun, please stand and be accounted for.

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      We weren’t lauding him to be an Allstar or anything. Just maybe better than Gardner. Which he still might be.

  • BJ

    Molina solo shot to open the inning. Count on it.

    • Bill R

      i”ll send you $20 bucks if he does

      • Steve in MN

        2nd

  • Joebrah

    jesus. kinda unlucky there.

    gotta imagine that gardner would have stolen second before that cano hit. may have gotten home on that cano hit.

    shit just isn’t going the yanks’ way tonight.

  • brian paul

    Yanks can win this one! Gotta stay positive! If Marte repeats this inning, I like he way Edwar, Veras and Jackson stack up against anyone they’ve got left in the pen. Plus we have been getting on base, we just need to get around a bit. Come on yanks!!!

    Why cant a beat writer get the news on Bruney?

    • BigBlueAL

      Because Girardi, as we have seen since last season, thinks injury news regarding the Yankees is considered Top-Secret, not even the FBI can find out news.

  • A.D.

    Some vintage Marte so far tonight.

  • BigBlueAL

    Somehow get this game to the 12th since after Pena the Yankees have their top of the order.

    They need to bust Youk inside every pitch. All he does is lunge and drive balls.

  • David S

    angel berroa come on up

  • Flynn

    FUCK YOU JOE
    FUCK YOU CANO
    FUCK YOU MO

    FUCK YOU MARTE DOESN’T RHYME

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

      You need help. It’s one game. In April.

      • Flynn

        1 game in April counts the same as one game in Oct. chokking like a dog hurts no matter when it happens

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      This is the type of Yankee fan I do not like.

  • BJ

    fuck youk

  • V

    Can’t say they didn’t have opportunities.

    Really hoping someone learns to hit with RISP someday. Would really be nice.

      IETC.

  • Drew

    Like I said earlier. One good inning by Marte wasn’t enough.

  • charlie

    i just threw up

  • KP

    Joe Girardi managed very, very poorly tonight.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      yet again…

    • Lanny

      When has he ever managed well?

      Has he ever made a good managerial move that blew your mind?

      • V

        When has anybody?

    • Drew

      Mariano blew the game, not Joe.

  • BigBlueAL

    The 2009 Yankees are get blown out and embarassed, or the bullpen blows the game in heart-braking fashion. Its only 16 games into April and Im already mentally exhausted….

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

      Really? You’re saying this only days after we won a 14-inning game where the bullpen pitched 8 scoreless innings?

      Step away from the bridge, you have too much to live for.

      • BigBlueAL

        I was just talking about the losses, either a blow out or a heartbreaker. Give me a normal loss for once!!!!

    • Joey H

      Wow and I thought you were one of the more level headed people on here.

  • Lanny

    This is a painful loss. Hurts even more realizing Bruney has elbow problems.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    You can put this one on Girardi and the Yankees’ “offense”. What a pathetic game.

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

      You can put this game on the offense which was fine except for getting those runners in and Mo. G has nothing to do with it.

  • dkidd

    it’s april. aj tomorrow. time for drinkey

    • Lanny

      games in april=games in september

  • Phrancis

    Girardi get this loss.

    • A.D.

      for not hitting with RISP & having his best reliever give up a HR?

      • Phrancis

        1. For bringing Mariano in the 8th.
        2. He could have had more in the tank in the 9th, and may be not give that HR to Bay.
        3. He could have pitched 10th, if he didn’t come in the 8th.

        Need I say more ?? I’m not playing monday mornig QB. But in all fairness, Giardi messed up this one.

        • http://deleted RollingWave

          really? name one reliever … forget about in the current bull pen, in the entire FUCKING HISTORY OF BASEBALL that you rather have in that situation

  • cuponoodles

    That was a heartbreaker. A pure heartbreaker. You cannot throw Marte out for inning #2, but it’s all in hindsight. The two run homer just killed us. Killed us.

    • Lanny

      we are 2 pitchers short with no bruney and no wang. they have to make a move so we dont have martes going more than he should

  • Flynn

    Hitting with men on is pathetic, this team had half dozen chances to ice it away but they gagged. I’m tired of watching the same gutless shit.

  • V

    So, why did Joe Girardi manage poorly? Is he the one that told Mariano to hang a mediocre fastball down the middle?

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

      Yeah, that’s what I don’t get. Our offense did well enough and the Red Sox were equally futile. So many DPs…

      Sometimes you send out your best guy with his best stuff and he doesn’t get the job done. That’s the story of tonight.

      • Flynn

        do you really believe that crap?

    • A.D.

      I don’t get the Joe G hate on this game, he brought in his best pitcher to shut the door, 95%+ he gets it done.

    • tim randle

      did Mo really not warm up after he pulled albie?

      • Drew

        before? he warmed up the whole 8th inning. Joe said he could go more than one this afternoon.

  • Albert = Machine

    A-ROD BETTER HURRY HIS ASS UP

    • JobaWockeeZ

  • Jake H

    This one hurts with all the chances that this team had. But it’s only April. Once A-Rod gets back we will have a deeper lineup.

  • http://161ststreet.wordpress.com Chris

    Wow. That was just horrible. Too many people to blame, never want to hear that game mentioned again.

  • Evan

    I don’t know. I at least got some satisfaction knowing David Ortiz is finished.

    • Lanny

      i wouldnt dance on his grave just yet. everyone said the same thing about delgado a yr ago

      • Evan

        Ortiz doesn’t even look like he is there. Those inside pitches from Marte would have been BLASTED in 2004-2007. Last year he faded out and now he is a shadown of his former steroid self.

    • Steve H

      Wonderfully put. Lose 1 of 162, but know that your main competition’s #4 hitter is done. Some positive light.

  • Lanny

    Girardi with another vintage performance.

    • mtrico

      Tonight’s game just further illustrates why Robinson Cano sucks.

      • C.Panella

        Idiotic statement ^^

        • mtrico

          He is a dumb player, not to mention lazy. His approach with the bases loaded is simply awful. Pedroia is so much better than him, it’s not even worth debating.

          • B.George

            do you have a brain???? you seriously have no idea what you are talking about

            • mtrico

              Unfortunately, I do. Cano will never live up to his talents. He is a dumb and lazy player. I thought things were going to be different this year based upon his hot start, but he is falling back into his old habits again. Swinging at bad pitches in big spots, not hustling, and not giving maximum effort in the field. He frustrates me more than any Yankee in recent history.

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

        Really? Seriously? Really?

        No wait, really?

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        Really?

  • Tom Zig

    When Joe tries to over manage the bullpen, bad things happen.

  • daneptizl

    Cano needs to get a real wake-up, not a season long delayed sit down for a little while. Punk ass needs to run.

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

      ?

      He’s hitting .354.

      • Lanny

        Cano is the least of our problems.

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

          When LANNY says it…..

          • Lanny

            It actually means something unlike eternally optimistic and cluesless Pop. A charter member of Girardi Manager of the Yr.

            • Spaceman.Spiff

              IETCfor the irony.

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

              I’m clueless because I don’t think this loss is on Joe G? Okaay Lanny, whatever you say. All you have been saying is this loss is on him but not saying why. Mainly like all your comments, just saying something but not providing info to back it up. Yup Lanny, you’re right sir, I am the clueless one. IPK still sucks, right?

      • daneptizl

        I think he would have beat the double play had he been hustling out of the box. He was probably going at 65-70%.

  • Blackdragon905

    Girardi sucks, he always has to overmanage, it’s sickening.

  • Drew

    This just in. We had a 2 run lead through 26 outs.

    • Flynn

      that and 2 bucks will get you a cup of coffee

      • Joe D.

        You pay too much for your coffee.

        • tim randle

          wtf can you get any coffee for $2??? mcdonalds?

  • Lanny

    A-Rod cannot come back quick enough.

  • Drew

    What the hell is everyone talking about over managing. MARIANO was in the game.

    • K.B.D.

      Seriously. I can’t believe this crap. Overmanaging? He used used 3 relievers to get 3.1 innings done. Mo just happened to blow it. Sure, maybe he should’ve let Albaladejo get the last out in the 8th, but he brought in Mariano. People need to calm down criticizing Girardi for bringing in MARIANO RIVERA to get 4 outs.

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

    Some of you guys/girls, w.e you are. Just ridiculous. Blaming it on Joe G, seriously? Ugh, gotta live with you people. Sucks, but it’s part of life. In the 10th you <3’d Marte and now you hate him and say he sucks again. Just hilarious to me. It’s one game, he pitched 2 innings and the offense didn’t score when they should have with Cano dping and Teix chasing the high heat. Mo and them are the reasons this game was lost, not Girardi. But, Mo is Mo, and is still the fucking man!

    • Drew

      Well, you can’t blame anyone for being mad at Marte for dishing up another HR.
      I didn’t understand why he even came in for a 2nd inning.

    • Tom Zig

      I was just confused to see Mo come up in the 8th. Of course everything is different in hindsight. If Mo saves it, then Joe looks like a genius. This one just stings bad.

      Anyone get any info on Bruney?

      • Evan

        Mariano has never pitched well in this place. He just can’t do it.

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

          Blasphemy.

    • Lanny

      The Girardi can do no wrong club I guess. Open those eyes Pop.

      • Drew

        What did he do wrong?

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

        My eyes are open, lol. Girardi was not the reason the Yanks lost the game. That is my point. The fans that just love the team and say they can do no wrong when the Yanks are up 6-3 are the same ones who bitch and moan when the pen gives up a run or Cano gidp’s. It just happens, and it is frustrating to see constant comments like this over, over, and over again.

        Like the “DFA Veras” movement. A joke.

      • A.D.

        He can do wrong, he just didn’t today. We joke but Mo can do wrong to, he did today.

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

      I’m completely with you. Like I said before, I don’t get how this was a “Joe G” loss.

      We sent in Mo, Mo didn’t get the job done. It happens. Not often, but it happens.

  • Phrancis

    That’s a NESN classic ! Bastards snatched one from YES

  • A.D.

    See if Burnett buzzes Youk tomorrow.

  • Spaceman.Spiff

    I hate so many of the Yankee “fans” on RAB now. What happened to having a level head about baseball, it’s overreaction city over here. Blaming Girardi for Mo giving up that homer, wtf? This one game illustrates why Cano sucks, really?

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

    Holy fuck people, stop blaming Girardi.

    He wasn’t out there with the bases loaded and no one out and not scoring.

    He didn’t cause Bruney to do whatever to his elbow, or Mo to serve up that home run to Jason Bay.

    Look, Joba walked on egg shells for six innings. We’re lucky it was as close as it was for as long as it was.

    Shit happens.

    You play again tomorrow.

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      Ahh, we need more of this and less “The Girardi can do no wrong club I guess. Open those eyes Pop.”

    • Lanny

      So the manager is always blameless? why have a manager then?

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        No, the manager is not always blameless. But also, the manager is not always to be blamed. What move that Girardi made did you think led to this loss? He should’ve known Mariano would give up a 2 run homer? He coached his guys to not hit with runners in scoring position? He arm wrestled Bruney before the game and injured him? Open your eyes Lanny.

      • Joey H

        What did he do wrong? Mo didn’t blow the game in the 8th, he blew it in the 9th. So quit being dumb.

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

        Incorrect.

        The lion’s share of the blame goes to… drumroll… Mo. He blows the 4-out save three times a season, tops.

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

        Managers are not blameless when they make stupid moves. Girardi did not make any stupid moves tonight. He made the best moves he could knowing what he knew at the time.

    • Tom Zig

      Wait what happened to Bruney?

      To see victory snatched away from us like that really hurts.

  • Gushue

    Boys, the Sox can have this all they want. All I know is they needed this alot more than we did. I dont care what he did, who hes dating or what he says, dont you think we are missing a big spot in our order. Tex then….. love him or hate him we are missing out best hitter ARod and when he gets back its going to be great. We are playing like crap, our bullpen and starters are struggling, are hitting is terrible and we are still winning games. No one should worry

  • Lanny

    Great that they told us whats ailing Bruney and everything.

    This Mangini shit is for the birds.

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

      Why the fuck do you need to know?

        why the FUCK don’t we need to know?

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

          Why the fuck IS MY BURRITO TAKING SO LONG TO COOK IN THE MICROWAVE?????!!!!

          Can you seriously not wait until morning? He went to a medical specialist, not a freaking emergency room.

          • Spaceman.Spiff

            IETC

  • Joe D.

    All the Girardi bashing is a joke. Girardi makes a lot of mistakes (like his lineup construction over the last year-plus), but tonight was not one. He asked Mariano to get four outs instead of three, and I don’t think that was an awful move. Actually, I rather liked it.

    Mo sucked tonight and the offense didn’t capitalize. There ya have it.

  • Drew

    Kay is such an idiot.

    • BigBlueAL

      What did he say now????

    • Lanny

      Is it me or does Kay think every fly ball is now a homer? cant listen to him

  • BigBlueAL

    Pete Abe just posted Wang to DL, Robertson up. Ransom to DL but no news on who is coming up. Bruney to have elbow examined.

    • Joey H

      All that HURTS. Really bad. Well just because of the Bruney thing. When is CMW’s retroactive date? Saturday?

  • daneptizl

    I gotta admit though…. I do like when the bullpen struggles, so that Melancon and Robertson can get the call.

    • Lanny

      u serious? u do realize they will get shots even if the pen doesnt struggle right?

      • daneptizl

        You do realize the better the pen is, the longer it’ll take for them to arrive, right?

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

      Uh, Marte HR or not, this bullpen – sans Mo – pitched amazingly this game.

      • daneptizl

        I like our bullpen. But I’d love it with Melancon and Robertson.

      • BigBlueAL

        You think maybe Edwar shouldve come in to face Youk??? I know obviously Girardi wanted to keep Marte out there to face Drew after Youk, but shit Youkilis is right now there best hitter. Plus after facing 4 batters already maybe shouldve taken Marte out there if anything to leave a good taste in his mouth after this outing. Again I for once am not criticizing anything Girardi did this game, which is rare cause quite frankly I hate him as a manager, but again it just seems any move/non-move he makes usually backfires.

        • A.D.

          I think in this case it was getting distance out of the relievers they had left.

    • Flynn

      I am without words

    • Joey H

      I don’t care what rules I am violating. You’re an idiot.

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        Ooooooooooh, I’m telling on you Joey. You said the i-word. Oooooooooh.

        • Joey H

          And I was being nice.

      • daneptizl

        It’s all good. I just like Melancon and Robertson.

        • Joey H

          No it’s not all good! What the hell is wrong with you. Do you realize what the hell you are exactly saying?

          • daneptizl

            What I’m saying is that I believe that the games that the current bullpen costs us would be greater than the games that the bullpen with Melancon/Robertson in it would cost us.

            • Joey H

              Oh yeah. Melancon who has never thrown a pitch in the bigs. Robertson who essentially sucked last year. I mean do you think before you type? Do you suffer from ADHD?

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

      Dogg, I don’t think you know what you’re saying.

    • A.D.

      wouldn’t you just prefer for the bullpen pitchers to all pitch well?

      • daneptizl

        I would… but I’d rather it be younger guys, who you can see having a longer future with the team.

        • Joey H
        • A.D.

          None of the bull pen guys are over 30 except for Mo & Marte, neither of whom are going anywhere.

          • daneptizl

            Which 2 do you think have more of a chance of being here in 6 years. Veras, Ramirez, Jackson, Robertson, and Melancon. I’ll go with Robertson and Melancon.

            • Joey H

              WHO THE HELL GIVES A RATS AIDS INFESTED BEHIND ABOUT YEARS FROM NOW!?!?!?!!?!?!? We’re talking 2009. http://yankees.lhblogs.com/

              • daneptizl

                And I think Robertson/Melancon are better than Edwar/Veras in 2009. I guess you disagree.

                • Joey H

                  No. It’s your logic that is silly.

                • daneptizl

                  How can you disagree that they’re better in 2009 ^^^^ and then agree here.

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        Yeah we could trade them if really need be but even if they were all good, depth is awesome especially for a volatile position like relief.

  • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

    Bruney’s hurt? Ugh. Here comes the “Joba to the 8th” landslide.

    Meanwhile, what does everyone think Pedro wants? If Wang can’t pitch for an extended period of time, that is…

    • A.D.

      Pedro will not be a Yankee.

    • BigBlueAL

      Hughes for Wang. Why the hell would we need Pedro????

    • Joey H

      PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT. Oh, You’re serious?

      • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

        And everyone here has complete faith in Hughes? ‘Pfft’, indeed.

        • Joey H

          …. *about to say something* …. *Sigh*

        • Spaceman.Spiff

          More faith than in Pedro at his age.

        • Spaceman.Spiff

          5.61 era, 1.57 whip last year in the fucking NL East. He’s 38, asking for 5 million, and coming off multiple injuries. So please don’t ask this question again. Ever.

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        I’d rather throw Hughes, then IPK out there than Pedro. NL East to AL East transition is not something he can do at this point.

        • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

          So what division were the Red Sox in all those years he pitched with them?

          Anyway, I was just asking — I’m sure I won’t be the last one to bring this up if Hughes stinks it up here again.

          • Spaceman.Spiff

            I hope you are the last one to bring this up. Pedro is 38 now, if we were getting the Red Sox era Pedro, sure we’ll take a look. But he wasn’t even good in the NL East last year, so I wonder if you have taken a look at his stats.

            • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

              Trust me, it’ll come up again.

              • Spaceman.Spiff

                Well, then the person to bring it up will be making an asinine, dumb comment. His whip has been 1.50 the last 2 years pitching against NL lineups. What part of that do you not understand?

      It’s got a cauliflower ear.

  • Quikksand

    It’s all the offenses faoult, if they scored with the bases loaded with 0 outs, this game would have been well in hand. But NOOOOOOOOO, they folded like origami paper.

  • brian paul

    listen, everyone needs to relax. sure, they could have gotten some guys around in the ninth, but they didn’t. the fact that we loaded the bases and had 15 baserunners on that didn’t come around is still a good sign so early in the season. remember, the tandem of tex and arod is sometthing we still have to look forward to! the sox’s offense is all they can really expect it to be, sans a dramatic trade. we’ve got a great matchup tomorrow to look forward to! let’s go AJ! bring us to the rubber game!!!
