  • The Evil Empire (We have a calf-pen)

    I’m disappointed with this game, but not as much as Friday’s and Saturday’s games. We can look on the bright side, 9-9, and we finally expose ourselves, Cashman needs to makes some moves:
    1 Add depth to the bullpen
    2 Sign a new CF (Cameron)
    Dang, Juan Cruz looks so good right now, if only…

    • Angry Axl

      Where is Cruz? he still out there?

      • Angry Axl

        He’s just like the rest of the overrated and overhyped prospects we’ve had. He’s not bad…but not nearly as good as advertised.

          who?

      • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt ACTY

        Yup. His first two innings as a Major Leaguer will define and determine his entire career.

        I guess that real good five pitch first inning didn’t count either, huh?

        Alright, no more conversing with you. You’re boring.

        • Angry Axl

          I don’t get it…everybody can make assumptions about every other pitcher on any other team after one inning or so…but I make my opinions based on what I see…combined with the success of our other “prospects” and I don’t know what I’m talking about?!? I DON’T GET IT!!!

    At bats like that kill me… We are down by 3, guy falls behind and hasn’t thrown a strike yet and you swing at one out of the zone. At least make the pitcher find the zone before you swing man.

    Okay, I’m going out on a limb here. Yankees go 8-2 over their next 10 games. Axl will still bitch how the bullpen gave up 2 hits in a few games, complain how Swish only walks and is not getting hits, and will still be negative. But mainly in the 2 losses and not the 8 wins. Cause, ya know, we all know how he is.

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      Axl is more funny and annoying than harmful guys, just smile and laugh at his comments like he’s the crazy uncle in your family that doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

      • Angry Axl

        Does that mean I can sleep with your aunt?

        • giselle

          no, the crazy uncle never marries. you see… he’s crazy.

          • Spaceman.Spiff

            Haha, exactly.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Axl go to that ESPN booth and completely take it over. I’d rather listen to you bitch about the Yankees than hear these “professionals” ramble.

    • Angry Axl

      I agree. I hope Miller chokes on Morgans cock later when they go back to the hotel room those bastards…

      the fact they cleared a 40 man spot for him instead of just bringing up Claggett should signal that he’s up to be a permanent fixture.

    Why didn’t you do that like three innings ago?

  • Nady Nation

    Melky just earned the nod in CF tomorrow, hopefully (note: I don’t like Melky, but Gardner is just that bad.)

    • V

      Melky SHOULD be the starting CFer.

      Not because he’s good.

      Only because Gardner is a waste of human flesh.

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        Yeah, Benjamin Kabak =P

      • A.D.

        If you figure they both will perform badly and play a solid CF defensively. The Gardner has more value off the bench as a pinch runner than Melk does, so they might as well go with Melk.

    No 3rd or center. The bullpen suck for now and the number 2 starter is on the DL.

    Here’s a hint, folks:

    If you don’t respond to the trolls (cough cough Angry Axl cough cough), they will just rant until they’re blue in the face, but they won’t get the benefit of a reply. So stop replying to them. This isn’t a hard thing to grasp on the Internet.

    • Angry Axl

      It’s easy to brand anybody who disagrees (is rational) a troll I guess…but I’m not. I’m a sincere fan who gets sick to their stomach when he sees his team play like utter shit. I’m sorry if I don’t react the same way you do. If you have an extra pair of those rose colored glasses you all have…I could use them right about now I guess…

    • manimal

      I’ve been a moderator for a couple of forums and it is very hard to control people responding to trolls. Their comments directly result in them trolling even more.

  • Angry Axl

    So where do we go from here? Toronto doesn’t lose…the Red Sox have now won 9 or 10 in a row…sweeping 3 teams in a row…and our problems don’t seem to have literally ANY answer right now. Where do we go from here? It’s nice to point out our record with all the problems…but the odds that it continues…and even if it does coast along at a .500 pace…it’s not going to help much or solve any of the problems that cause it all. SO WHAT THE FUCK DO WE DO?!?!?

      Forfeit the season and start building towards 2010.

        • http://statspeak.net dan

          Who the fuck sells puke buckets?

      • Jona H

        This is great.

    • A.D.

      Well we are definitely getting back the best offensive player in the league, which will lengthen the lineup and hopefully = more runs. Which will help hide any pitching problems.

      We will find a pitcher that can put up better starts than Wang thus far.

      Those are guarantees.

      Then CC most likely will become more dominant, Tex will hit more, and likely the pen settles down/they get the right mix of guys, the pen is simply more talented than they’ve shown in the meltdowns.

      • Angry Axl

        This is what I’m hoping for. And I hope this is the case. Ransom/Gardner/Melky/Borroa…having them start…let alone pinch hit for each other is embarrassing and pathetic enough. Arod will come back…Teixeira, Sabathia, and AJ hopefully start earning their paycheck (AJ’s been ok but seems like the others convinced him to slow down or something)…but even with Arod back…CF is a real bad hole. I used to think Gardner was Tavares/Ellsbury but he’s so much worse. We need to issue it. I’ll be happy when all of this is arranged…and or there are a bunch of firings…

      • mustang

    I know this is a marathon, but I would like to for once see us take the lead early on, and not put in extra efforts simply to catch up.

    PS: THAT ESPN is a joke! OUR ESPN is 10 times better compared with them, and that’s just sad.

  • Tom Zig

    Well our bullpen didnt get scored on.

  • A.D.

    Ouch .167 w/RISP in the series.

  • A.D.

    NO Steve Phillips the question is not will Joba go back to the 8th.

    Which is even funnier since the Yankees did not blow a save situation in any game in the 8th inning in this series, therefore if Joba was in the pen it wouldn’t have made that much difference.

    • Jersey

      The real question is, how is Steve Phillips still gainfully employed?

  • Tom Zig

    You know what? I will be happy to go through a 9 inning game without giving up a walk.

  • Andrew

    Just an embarrassing series of performances all weekend long. Don’t know what else to say. This team has humiliated the city in the early going.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

      Humiliated the city? Please. Gain some perspective here.

  • B.George

    Cashman better be on the phone with the Brewers right now working a deal out for Austin Jacksons father Mike Cameron because if I see Gardner take another at bat I might just shoot myself….A Rod please come back tomorrow for the love of god….and watching that game on ESPN tonight was an utter embarrasment to human civilization if I saw them zoom in on Theo Epstein one more time I was gunna puke all over myself.

  • Blackdragon905

    I personally believe that the pitching will be fine. However, I’m deeply concerned about the lack of clutch hitting. It’s been bad for a long time now. I feel like it has infected the whole team. I mean the Yanks were unfathomably atrocious with RISP in this series. But it’s not just this series, it’s been for a very long time. They can certainly get enough guys on base, but for whatever reason, don’t get enough of them home. I think they are the worst in baseball so far this year hitting with RISP. I could be wrong, but I know it’s pretty close to being last.

  • DCR

    Anyone else becoming immune to the lack luster April’s the Yankees have? You know things are bad when people are clamoring for Ramiro Pena to start.
