    i like the royal blue shoes

  • Drew

    At least we struck out swinging instead of looking..

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

      True, but the called strike 3’s to Matsui and Posada (especially) were questionable at best.

  • John

    i called that inning

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

    Watching Kyle Farnsworth retire 3 Yankees in a row sucked almost as bad as that Wolverine movie is going to suck.

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

      Yeah, I saw the leaked version – eh…

      • Sam

        I heard there were a lot of issues with that version

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

          Nah, it was a good quality; it’s just that the CG scenes weren’t completed.

          • andrew

            I haven’t seen it, but I feel like the CG should be a pretty big component in a movie like that, no?

  • dkidd

    anyone know how long we get a free baseball package on time warner?

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

      on RCN it’s 7 days.

        i’m enjoying listening to vin scully. no color man, just him alone in the booth. amazing

    • Drew

      through the 12th

  • tarik

    That just happened.

  • dkidd

    watched some of the tigers game. hard to believe miguel cabrera is still only 25

  • John

    what are the YES radar’s reading on Pettitte’s fastball…gameday had it at 79 the last two and a 87.4 average

    • Drew

      lol gameday says 2 fastballs were 79 and a slider was 82. hmm..

    • Sam

      YES’s gun has been garbage this year, they had Mo throwing 58 yesterday at one point

      • John

        really? damn

  • Drew

    Jete regulatin’

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

    I figured out what Mike Jacobs is awesome at:

    Having a goatee that smacks of douchebaggery.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      the face of douchebaggery.

    • Sam

      But it doesn’t have a website with an animation devoted to it!

        Touché.

        Youkilis >>>>>> Jacobs

  • pat

    Lets add a few runs here boys so i feel completely comfortable with bruney/marte pitching the 8th.

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

      You should already feel comfortable, pat.

  • Drew

    Bruney=boss

  • Sam

    Great job by Andy today

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Thanks man.

      • Sam

        You were amazing, great way to start the game threads off

        • Andy In Sunny Daytona

          I just want to help the RAB. RAB has a real chance to win it all this year. We just have to take it, one comment at a time.

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

            Your style is impetuous, your defense is impregnable and you’re just ferocious. You want his heart. You want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah.

  • Drew

    Mets playing the Marlins tonight. I look forward to seeing the fish keep their ridiculous power going..

  • Drew

    I know we want to walk. But come on..

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

    Is there anything more scintillating than seeing your second basemen with a .706 OBP?

    • Sam

      Considering that second baseman had around a .300 OBP last year: no

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

      It’s like the best almost-birthday present ever!

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

    Well, the good news is that if the Yankees don’t score again and KC doesn’t score more than two runs in the bottom of the inning, Mo can get save #1!

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Joba this inning, right?

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

        Something of the sort.

      • Sam

        Sabathia. He’d flourish as a setup man

        • Drew

          True. His body type doesn’t warrant 33 starts.

  • John

    anyone else shocked to see Cano flyout?

    • Steve O.

      Eh, you win some, you lose some.

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

    Holy crap Yankees stop striking out!

    Another banner day for the Nick Swisher fan club. :) Steve H, where you at?!

    • Drew

      Nady looks bored. 8)

      • VO

        Is it just me or can watching Nady play put people to sleep.

    • Steve H

      In my best Peter Griffin voice

      Right here

  • dkidd

    i still think veras is gonna end up being the 8th inning guy

  • LiveFromNewYork

    The thin Brian Bruney looks like Jeff Gordon.

  • Drew

    Game. Blouses.

    • Sam

      In your face, Kansas City Royals

  • Steve O.

    Nady’s going to pinch hit for Ransom, then Pena is going to play the field.

    • Steve O.

      Prediction fail.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Bruney hasn’t looked this good since “Kindergarten Cop”.

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

      IETC.

      • andrew

        Agreed.

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

    Bullpen looks great so far.

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

    ZOMG they need Joba in teh 8th inning otherwise they’ll blow teh leads!!1!!!

    • Sam

      The Joba to the pen people will probably point out that they were playing the Royals today

  • dkidd

    cole hamels got shelled today. was he on the verducci list?

    • Steve O.

      I believe so. Along with Lester and IPK among others.

      • dkidd

        pelfrey?

    • Steve H

      He belongs in the 8th anyway.

  • Drew

    lol. “like my family reunion, lots of K’s.”

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Thanks be to Mo for, um, Mo.

  • Drew

    Nice Gritner.

    • Drew

      good one Gardner.

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

    Hey look! Not a strike out!

    (betcha Jeter GIDPs…)

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

      Well, or that.

    • Sam

      Well there goes the double play

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Rusty Kuntz!!! My all-time favorite player.

  • pat

    dammit gardner.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Oh Brett.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Gardner wanted no part of a GIDP so he threw himself on his sword.

  • John

    Gardy’s such a team player, he saved Jeter the shame of a DP

  • Sam

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

    That was lame.

  • Steve O.

    Just curious, but does a pick off count as a caught stealing?

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

      I don’t think so. Well maybe. I don’t know.

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

      Yes.

            • Steve O.

              It was a thanks Tommie!

              And it would have more weight if you didn’t incorrectly answer my question the first time.

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

                Yeah… I’m just an asshole, what can I say.

                • Steve O.

                  Eh it’s ok, we all have our moments.

      • Steve O.
  • Steve O.

    That could have been Jeter’s second DP.

  • Drew

    If Aviles and Jacobs didn’t miss those plays this would’ve been a longggggg game.

  • Steve O.

    Rebecca, for a so called “optimist” you’re not very optimistic.

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

      She’s prime though. Oh, MAN, is she prime.

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

        I giggled uncontrollably for, like, 2 minutes after reading this.

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

      You’re confusing optimism with delusional.

  • Sam

    Yay! We finally got the outside half of the plate!

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

    From LoHud:

    “UPDATE, 6:58 p.m.: Gee, wouldn’t it be better if Joba Chamberlain used his considerable skills to face Miguel Olivio, Alberto Callaspo and Coco Crisp in a three-run game instead of maybe throwing seven innings on Sunday?”

    Nicely done, Pete.

    • Drew

      I hope he’s being sarcastic.

      • Sam

        I’m going to go out on a limb and say he was, even though I thought he was on the pro-bullpen side of the debate

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

          He was never on that side, he’s been out front about wanting him to start consistently from the beginning.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      Pete continues to take those stupid pills.

    • pat

      I do believe pete is being sarcastic.

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

        Geez Louise.

        This is just another example of how sarcasm doesn’t show up well online unless you go totally over the top with it.

        • pat

          I was just trying to be nice, to me it was pretty f*ckin obvious he was being sarcastic.

          • Drew

            Right. This is the man that said we’re better without Alex. So how can you see this statement as obvious?

            • pat

              Well he absolutely hates arod so that part doesn’t surprise me. The wording of it us what sold me. He named three particularly unimpressive hitters, said it was a three run game, said how Joba has considerable skills and proposed a much more desirable outcome for his pitching (7 innings sunday).

              • Drew

                True. At this point though, I won’t put anything past him.

                • pat

                  He’s normally a dipshit but he’s right about joba at least.

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

    If I’m not mistaken, that K of Aviles makes it 9.1 consecutive hit-less innings for the Yanks’ pen, and 5.0 perfect innings.

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

      You are not mistaken.

    • Drew

      If Joba was back there it would be 9.1 perfect innings.

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

        No, it would still be just 5.0 perfect innings.

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