      No!!! You need to grab your torch and pitchfork! Riot in the streets!

      • Mike Pop

        Where’s CC live? We got to teach this guy and his family a lesson.

  • Expired Milk

    Well atleast he didnt shove down a camera man

  • Mike Pop

    OH NOEEESS!!!

      Unrelated (*wink*) but try googling myp2p…thats all I’m saying….

      maybe read their “beginers guide” and “software page” if youre having trouble….

  • mustang

    CC is all over the place and he still only has given up 3 runs.

  • Mike Pop

    I blame A-Rod.

    • jsbrendog

      seriously

  • Kilgore Trout

    Can I blame that triple on Nady being a terrible Right Fielder?

    • Drew

      Abreu>>>>>>>>>Nady

      • jsbrendog

        sarcasm i hope

      • Mike Pop

        I like Abreu more but he is definitely not better when bringing his defense in.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I don’t know, our offense could really use a big bat, an A-Rod type player maybe…

  • Mike Pop

    Damn you Mora!!

  • A.D.

    damn Ransom got robbed

  • Joe Biden

    Hell yeah!

  • Reggie C.

    Walk slow Eiland. CC’s laboring.

  • Smitt Dogg

    Can someone report on whats going on? Is CC looking ok?

    By the way, anyone seen what this Emilio Bonifacio character in Florida is doing? Inside the park???

    • JT

      He’s struggling to throw the fastball for strikes. A lot of pitches, a lot of balls. Not a good day but still just three runs.

  • BigBlueAL

    Yankees bullpen gonna have a workout already on Opening Day.

  • jsbrendog

    ugggh these gamecast things SUCK. they freeze up and nothing happens and then in like 10 seconds 10 minutes worth of stuff happens and it goes crazy

  • YankeeScribe

    It’s the ESPN curse. The Yanks almost always lose when the game is one ESPN…

  • Tseng

    I don’t understand why CC has given up runs. My expectations for him was a CG shutout every start with a few no hitters staggered in there. (sarcasm)

  • A.D.

    Damn marketing genius throwing the inaugural season patch on the back of the hat, now I’ll end up buying a new hat.

  • Reggie C.

    On a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the most disappointed, i’m at a 4. Why do the O’s put up such fight?

    • Mike Pop

      I’m at 4 because CC just looks horrible.

      • Reggie C.

        Every hitter has been a challenge. btw. what’s with “ietc”.

        • Mike Pop

          I enjoyed this comment.

    • YankeeScribe

      Duh! It’s their home opener. In recent years, it’s the only baseball game that Baltimore’s fans care about before they start focusing on football and the Ravens…

    • John

      they’re full of Yankee killers

      • Reggie C.

        People should know when they’re conquered.

  • pat

    I never noticed that little hitch he has when the ball is behind his back in his windup.

  • http://thebaseballdiarist.wordpress.com Kaitlin B.

    What was that about not needing a long-man? Hopefully Alby is up to the job.

    • jsbrendog

      of course, the first game of the season with the ace out there they might need a long man haha

  • BBDC

    Is MLB Gameday off or is CC getting squeezed bigtime?

    Its showing pitches in the zone that are being called balls (almost every pitch now).

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    UMP got fucked up

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I hate the O’s, I really do. They only play hard against the Yankees.

    • jsbrendog

      riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

  • Angelo

    This is getting bad

    • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

      There are 1453 innings left in the season, the yankees had 4 bad ones.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    Could we see Phil Coke come in for 2 innings?

  • pat

    It’s alright baby, as singy just said the Dp is still in order.

    • mko

      YES, and done!
      Nice!

  • E-ROC

    Damon throwing a baseball will never get old.

  • Angelo

    CC needs a K or else..

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

    Big DP right there.

  • Angelo

    Or that DP helps lol

    • GoTerpsGo

      WOOHOO double play

  • A.D.

    nice dp

  • E-ROC

    That is exactly why we got Tex.

  • Mike Pop

    Phew.

  • Tseng

    Texxy earned a little bit of his contract there, catching that DP throw from Jeter.

    • John

      now if only he can earn the rest of the $100 million…

    • Jake

      He can earn a little bit more if he brings in Damon here.

  • pandaexpress

    Is it just the ESPN radar gun, or is CC’s fastball looking a little slow? I don’t think I’ve seen him above 92 all day.

    • Reggie C.

      mlb gameday has had CC at better velocity than that.

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

      YES has him at 89-90. Gameday and Pitch F/X have him at 92-94.

      • pandaexpress

        Fangraphs said his average fastball velocity was 93.7 last year. Probably just an Opening Day thing . . . but in combination with his lack of fastball command, it’s why he’s getting knocked around today.

  • John

    why did Guthrie choose today to pitch well?

    • Mike Pop

      It’s still early.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Does CC have a K today?

    • Mike Pop

      Nope.

  • Matt

    It would be nice if CC found the strike zone

  • Mike Pop

    His ribs are hurting?

    • jsbrendog

      too much hearty laughter with his team mates and their bromances

  • Angelo

    This isn’t the same Jeremy Guthrie we saw pitching for US in WBC. He just looked aweful and now he’s unhittable>?

  • Reggie C.

    Thank you Damon.

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

    nice damon…smoke’em

  • Brazilian Yankee

    The offense looks weak still.

    • Mike Pop

      ….5 innings.

    • pat

      Pardon my language but its the 5th fucking inning of the first game of the season .

  • CP3

    FIngers crossed for tex hr

    it’s tex time.

    Haha Tex taking out the fans one at a time.

  • http://Thebronxbombersblog.com Joey H

    He looks exhausted. (CC) (not closed caption)

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

    wow…that was a stike…make it worth it.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Not the way the ump has been calling the game today.

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

      shite

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    One too many cheeseburgers before the game for CC.

  • mko

    Looked like a called strike to me, lucky…

  • JT

    Wow that was clearly a strike.

  • jsbrendog

    according to espn gameast call 4 was just right down the exact middle of the plate….really?

    can i get verification of this

    • Joey

      just about, yeah

      • jsbrendog

        great umpiring all around it seems

    • Jake

      It was definitely a strike.

    • mko

      I’d say it was in the middle of the plate, up in the zone. Tex crouched a little, maybe that threw off the ump.

  • Mike Pop

    Ugh.

  • Byron

    got away with one there… time for matsui to ground out…

  • CP3

    How long will CC last?

  • http://thebaseballdiarist.wordpress.com Kaitlin B.

    It’s been disappointing so far, but there’s still time for them to pick it up. Hopefully C.C. can have a nice, easy inning here. (Commercials give me time to be rational.)

  • BigBlueAL

    Yankees picking up where they left off last season with leaving runners on base.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Where is the ’09 team? Cause this offense is from ’08.

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

    Mike Cameron would have caught that.

  • Angelo

    Can’t blame Gardner there.nice try

    • Drew

      Why not?

  • http://thebaseballdiarist.wordpress.com Kaitlin B.

    Easy inning? No. Okay then.

    Damn you, Brian Roberts! ::shakes fist::

  • BigBlueAL

    Melky wouldve caught that…..

    • pat

      Big Blue Albert you have beaten me to the punch.

  • pat

    melky would have had that

  • jsbrendog

    well, time to go home. hopefully when i get home its 4-3 yanks

  • CP3

    damn it!!!!!!!!! I miss you melky.

  • Drew

    Someone’s afraid of the wall.

    • JT

      I wonder if anybody has ever said that about Gardner at any point in his career.

  • mko

    Whose idea was it to have an off day in the middle of a series anyway? Stupidest thing ever, and they do it every year after opening day…

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

      It’s to ensure that the people who bought tickets to Opening Day get to see the first game of the year. If this game got rained out, they would have played the first game tomorrow.

      If they played say, three games in a row, then the people who bought tickets to Game Two could have seen Opening Day.

      • mko

        Interesting, thanks. So basically it’s so they can charge more for opening day tickets :-D

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        Damn, beat me to it Mike.

      • pat

        Word, last year opening day at yankee stadium was rained out and rescheduled for the following day.

      • BigBlueAL

        The Marlins mustve missed the memo. They play the Nationals Mon, Tue and Wed.

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      It’s in case of a rainout in the first game, not the stupidest thing ever. People who paid to go to Opening day should get to go to Opening Day and if the first game is rained out, this ensures that they still have the Opening Day tickets.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    This ump is terrible.

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

    I miss A-Rod.

  • Angelo

    Anyone else think CC wont get out of the inning?

    • Blind Squirrel

      Not I.

  • Reggie C.

    Take him out.

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

    this ump is rediculous…missing calls left and right and down the middle.

  • SS

    CC’s getting hammered today.

    • Mike Pop

      Looks like he got hammerred last night.

      • Drew

        ietc

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

      No, Brandon Webb and Aaron Cook got hammered today. CC’s just laboring.

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

      if 3 runs is getting hammered, i’ll take it. hopefully, 3 runs.

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

        shize

  • Drew

    Come on Carsten Charles you got this!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    We paid for CC Sabathia but we are getting CC Ponson so far.

  • MikeyMet

    Lucky for you guys CC has an opt out clause after 3 yrs. For the Yankees sake you better hope he uses it. Johan on the other hand looked quite nice today. The Mets bullpen looked good too. Textbook would be a good way to put it.

    • Mike Pop

      Lol.

    • mko

      Where is the sarcasm meter when you need it…

    • pat

      Ugh. Have fun with the rest of your rotation bruh.

      • Thomas

        Probably, the only time this season that Oliver Perez won’t be leading the league in walks.

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

      Oh please, Johan didn’t look all that good. He was wiggling in and out of trouble all day against an NL team.

      It’s one game.

      • BigBlueAL

        Foreel, threw so many pitches he only lasted 5 2/3.

      • Reggie C.

        Johan’s supposed to be automatic against the weak teams. Johan did his job today.

        • Mike Pop

          Yes he did. But nothing to brag about in my opinion.

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      ThisCommentIsEpicFail

      CC’s a notoriously slow starter. If you consider that he started with a 7+ ERA in April last year and still finished with those ridiculous numbers, I like our chances in the second half of the season.

  • A.D.

    shaping up similar to opening day last year for CC

  • Drew

    This is fucking atrocious. I still think he’ll get through it though.

  • CP3

    quality start is out of the window

  • Angelo

    Yeah this is pretty bad. my opening day is nearly spoiled. Lets hope things can turn around very quickly in the game.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    He doesn’t have good stuff. Fine. Then take him out!!!! Seriously, Girardi is already pissing me off.

    • Jake

      Exactly. There’s no reason not to with an off-day tomorrow.

  • BigBlueAL

    We are in 2009 right?? For some reason I feel like its 2008 still….

    • Angelo

      2008 cont .. agreed

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Offense struggling against a not-that-good pitcher and a fat guy pitching and giving up runs left and right… It definately feels like ’08.

  • Byron

    he better not pitch like this opening day at the new stadium…

  • http://thebaseballdiarist.wordpress.com Kaitlin B.

    It’s not Cliff Lee or Brandon Webb, but it’s sure as heck not decent. So far he has a 9.00 ERA, which is…disappointing, I think.

  • Reggie C.

    C’mon CC. K mora.

    • http://thebaseballdiarist.wordpress.com Kaitlin B.

      K someone. Did you know that he had exactly zero games last year without at least one K?

  • Jake H

    I wonder if he is going through a dead arm period.

  • Mike Pop

    Can everyone please stop overreacting right now.

    • JT

      Agreed.
      Chiiiiilllllll.

  • Drew

    lol.

  • Reggie C.

    Thank you Ransom.

  • CP3

    WTF

  • zs190

    God, the defense is playing horrible too.

  • pat

    Jesus Christ hopefully we lose all the bandwagon fans right quick.

  • Mike Pop

    Better off without…….A-Rod.

  • mko

    What an inning…I hate Baltimore.

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

    Well the defense isn’t exactly helping out either. A-Rod can’t come back soon enough.

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

    muther of mo

  • shades

    put in pena

  • BigBlueAL

    Could this game be going any worse????

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

      Yes, way worse.

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

      very much so…

      • JT

        CC could get injured…..
        The Yankees could be shut out….
        Gardner could be 0-2….
        Jeter could have an error….
        Damon could not be raking….
        I could go on if you’d like.
        It’s the first game guys.

        • Thomas

          They could be losing 30-3.

  • John

    lets hope our offense can finally get some runs

  • Drew

    A base hit right at the thrid baseman. Interesting.

  • Will (the other one)

    Man…tough day for Handsome Cody. Here’s hoping it’s just Opening Day jitters.

  • CP3

    How many people think we lose this game today????

    • mko

      [X]
      Whatever, no biggie. Win the next two.

  • Jake H

    great D this inning.

  • Angelo

    Is this game out of hand?

  • Mike Pop

    So how many columns are going to come out tomorrow that are going to upset us?

    • mko

      How many are a gazillion?

      • mko

        Let’s hope CC can handle the coming onslaught! :-/

  • JP

    it is out of hand, mike.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Another run and it’s probably game over..

  • MikeyMet

    Joahan beat a weak team? Ok. CC is getting spanked by a weak team.LOL.

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

      The orioles have a good offense.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    I effing bet on the Yankees today. ;_;

    • BigBlueAL

      Yeah there goes my 4 game winning streak in ESPN.com’s Beat the Streak.

  • Drew

    This game is far from over people. Just need to stop the bleeding immediately. Oh, and can we put in Swisher now?

    • Angelo

      I agree it is far from over, but lets hope this doesnt get worse

    • Reggie C.

      Well … this long half-inning could put a crimp on Guthrie’s groove.

  • Angelo

    Well this is why they play 162

  • BigBlueAL

    I did a draft last night in The Show (using the Yankees) lost 1st game 14-10 (with Roy Halladay starting for me) then up 4-1 in the 7th inning in Game 2 Brad Ziegler gives up a grand slam to Aramis Ramirez and I go on to lose 6-5.

    The real life Yankees are just imitating my fake Yankees.

  • BBDC

    Girardi puts way too much emphasis on lefty-righty matchups (see last year automatic Giambi platoon)- Walking Ty Wiggington to face Luke Scott, Really? Really?

    • http://thebaseballdiarist.wordpress.com Kaitlin B.

      I’m thinking about a new use for my pitchfork, to say the least.

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

      It was more about putting the force back on.

      • A.D.

        Exactly, and Scott was owned by lefties last year.

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

      It was to set up the DP.

      • BBDC

        Gotcha, my bad. Its hard following on gameday.

        doh, stupid job!!

  • http://Thebronxbombersblog.com Joey H

    Where are the first pitch strikes? And as a fast note the Gameday gun has him at 93 on his fastball. So please.

  • http://Thebronxbombersblog.com Joey H

    He looked tremendously nervous.

  • Reggie C.

    TAKE HIM OUT!

  • Mike Pop

    Don’t punch anything CC.

  • http://Thebronxbombersblog.com Joey H

    I don’t like how CC catches the ball with his bare hand.

  • http://thebaseballdiarist.wordpress.com Kaitlin B.

    Ohhh, walking in a run. This is getting close to a nightmare scenario.

  • Drew

    Let’s just throw four sliders in a row to LUKE EFFING SCOTT

    • mko

      Well, he didn’t have any fastball command today…

    • Mike Pop

      Only pitch he had command of.

      • K.B.D.

        So throw one over for a strike. Don’t go to the same spot with the same pitch 4 times and expect different results.

  • pat

    At least we’re giving Guthrie lots of time to cool off.

    • Angelo

      I like the optimism.. Albie comes in and gets us out of this inning, we chip away with a run or two in the 6th, hold them and then attack and reclaim the lead in the 7th or 8th

      • pat

        Not exactly the DP we were envisioning, but it still works. We’re within striking distance.

  • Mike Pop

    Not the debut I was hoping for, but that said, it’s a very long season.

    Hopefully they can knock around Guthrie a bit and get into that bullpen.

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

    6 straight sliders…can’t get the dude out…well. it’s one game. He’ll be better next time around.

  • BBDC

    Argh ok he’s screwed up its time to pull him when a pitcher issues a walk after an intentional walk, then he’s fried.

    Hopefully he’ll do better next time around.

  • Chris K

    Notorious slow starter. He’s probably completely out of shape, I’m guessing.

  • BigBlueAL

    Shit!!!! I just remembered I benched Jeremy Guthrie this week in one of my fantasy teams!!!!

    • pat

      Don’t worry there’s still lots of time for him to implode.

    • Mike Pop

      That is a good thing, you watch.

  • K.B.D.

    Pathetic.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    They just pitch to Luke Scott like he was Barry Bonds..

  • Drew

    My heart just skipped a beat there.

  • marc resnick

        yes, yes it did. girardi made a big mistake!

    if he’s healthy he’ll be fine. if he isnt… then we’re fucked lol for many years lol cc had a rib cage to start 06 then went on to win the cy young.

    • http://mantisfists.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/julius-carry-aka-shonuff.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      That’s crazy, I have a rib cage, too.

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

      Seriously. He got killed in his first four starts last year, then was He-Man the rest of the year.

      • Mike Pop

        Woman Hater.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Beautiful throw by Gardner.

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

    nice. people are going to test the grit until they learn. don’t mess with grit or you’ll get the grit

    • pat

      IETC very much.

  • Mike R. – Retire 21

    Albaladejo>>>>Sabathia

  • gxpanos

    He’ll be fine. Lets see 8 or 10 starts before we start formulating a negative opinion of him. Everybody has days with control issues.

    In other news, Grit Gritner with an accurate throw from the outfield. He’s had a nice game.

  • pat

    OMG small ball robbies walking WTF is going on.

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

      I want to see Cody come around third and jump over a catcher like W. Snipes. He’s got the ups.

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

        damn it…wasn’t supposed to be there.

      • pat

        It’ll happen.

  • Reggie C.

    Cano walks!!

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

    Cano…walked?

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

      He must’ve been standing next to Nick Swisher.

      • Jack

        It is contagious!

  • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

    Over/Under: 5.5 hyperbolic articles on CC’s awful outing.

    • Drew

      Sucka got no juice

    • Jack

      Over.

    • Mike Pop

      Sherman, Wallace, Stark, Gammons, Law, WasWatching guy, and maybe Mikey F will say something.

  • BigBlueAL

    Cano walks on Opening Day!!

  • Alex S

    damn fan

  • A.D.

    Heh took Cano 10 games to get a BB last year

  • Drew

    Okay maybe I was wrong about Xman

  • Angelo

    That was a big hit. lets capitalize!

  • Andrew Smith

    Odd to see Cano actually taking pitches.

    Nice rip Nady…

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Nick who?!

    • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

      Swisher. He’ll be the starting RF by June at the latest.

      • Mike Pop

        He will be playing 3rd tomorrow.

        • Mike Pop

          I mean the next game.

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

    Cody Ransom … ugh.

    • Thomas

      Bring back Berroa.

  • The Evil Empire

    I WANT A ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDD

  • Angelo

    Our savior is up to bat!

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

    See … why not PH Swisher there? You need to get that run in.

  • Drew

    Come on Grit.. make em work!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    To imagine some people thought the Yankees would be better off with Ranson playing 3rd.

  • Drew

    wats happnin cappin

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

    I want to see Cody come around third and jump over a catcher like W. Snipes. He’s got the ups. (put it as a comment on a comment above…stupid)

  • Brazilian Yankee

    This is more of the same from the Yankees offense, runner on 2nd with no outs and they can’t get the run home, terrible. I don’t think they have a hit with RISP today..

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

      Dammit nady

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

        dammit…sorry, keep happening

  • pat

    Gurhrie’s location is faltering, this inning isnt over yet.

    • pat

      Well that was a base knock against a normal SS.

      • Drew

        It was a base knock..

  • A.D.

    Damnit Nady

  • BigBlueAL

    WTF

  • Drew

    Fucking Jackass. Okay, now u can bring in swish

  • Mike Pop

    X makes me sigh.

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

    You suck Nady.

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

      I take it back, it’s Thompson’s fault for sending him.

      • BigBlueAL

        Bring back Bobby Meacham!!!!

  • shades

    bench nady now, bring in swish

  • Andrew Smith

    lol… heady play Nady

  • Reggie C.

    Swish wouldn’t have done that…

  • http://mantisfists.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/julius-carry-aka-shonuff.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    Nice hustle, X.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Great heads up play by Nady..

  • Drew

    Really unexcuseable on a 10 hopper. Jeter gets them knocked down before the outfield all the time.

  • Andrew Smith

    As bad as a play that was… do any of you really believe Swisher is the answer in RF?

    • Drew

      yepp. 30 hr’s gun for an arm 360+obp

  • E-ROC

    Where were you third base coach?

  • MikeyMet

    Nice base running. How much is the payroll ???
    It is going to be a long year boys. The Yankees are fat “CC”, old and overpaid.

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

      why are you here? need to take out your frustration form the past few years?

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

        Don’t feed the trolls. Ignore him and he’ll go away. Like the Mets in late September.

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

          That is o so true. I see the light.

        • http://mantisfists.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/julius-carry-aka-shonuff.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

          Can you just boot him? I’m sure you don’t like doing that kind of thing, but he’s clearly not here to try to participate in any sort of intelligent discourse.

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

            Yeah, but that’s not right. He didn’t break any of the commenting guidelines. We can’t boot him just because he’s pissing us off.

            • http://mantisfists.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/julius-carry-aka-shonuff.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

              (Puts lawyer hat on)

              Commenting on a blog with the sole purpose of pissing people off could certainly be called “harassment,” which is prohibited by RAB Commenting Guideline #2.

              This is not someone who is coming here to chat and having a disagreement with other commenters. His sole intent is to harass.

    • Andrew Smith

      Love the bombastic reactions…keep them coming

    • pat

      Haha nothing better to do then troll a yankee game thread?? Sweet.

    • Thomas

      How much is the payroll ???

      Well, Cashman was planning on signing Redding, Hernandez, Garcia, and Perez in an effort to keep the payroll down. Then, he realized they suck.

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      Who’s your 5th starter again? Thought so.

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

    X marks the spot where I hulk smash you in the face.

  • Yanks99

    wouldn’t you bench him if you were a manager? or do you just lay down cause you don’t wanna get injured in a run down? when i was in little league i’m sure i would have been benched if i did what nady just did (and i wanted nady over swish)

  • Reggie C.

    Yeesh … Marlins have hit 4 homeruns today.

    • Thomas

      One was inside the park, too.

    • E-ROC

      Hanley had a grandslam too!

    • Chris K

      Hanley’s slam was monsterous.

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

      Bonifacio is 4-for-4 with four runs scored, three steals and an inside the park homer.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Brian Roberts and Adam Jones have to be career .800 hitters against the Yankees.

  • MikeyMet

    I’m just messin around with your guys. I am happy though that the Mets have Johan and not some fat tub of goo like CC. I’m just sayin.

    • pat

      I hear the banhammer whirling in the distance.

    • http://www.theonion.com/content/news_briefs/mets_to_play_brewers_in_one BBDC

      Enjoy the choking!!

  • Drew

    Albie ftw

  • A.D.

    Alby doing his best Pettitte

  • TC

    Giambi throws that ball into left field

  • jmas12

    I was a Swisher advocate too. And I’ll look past the baserunning mistake by Nady. But run it out man. Don’t just stand there like you have some sense of entitlement. Swisher would have ran. Nice to see Brian Roberts hustle when he gets picked off.

    • Drew

      yea, and if it was Thompson’s fault he woulda ran all the way home not stop half way and try to make it back.

  • MikeyMet

    A pick off !!! That will make the highlight reel !!! Yeah baby !!!

  • Reggie C.

    Adam Jones should be wearing a Mariners uniform dammit!

    • pat

      Thats what I was thinking. F you Bavasi for that horrible horrible trade.

  • Thomas

    Wow, I am glad I added Emilio Bonifacio in RAB fantasy before the game. 4-4, 4R, 1HR, 2 RBIs, 3 SB. Damn.

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

      You beat me too it by about 15 minutes.

      • Thomas

        Ha, Jamal G. probably pissed too since he is facing me.

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

    There he his…come get some COKE.

  • scottnar

    Nady just seems lazy to me. doesn’t look like he gives it his all on fly balls and now the non-run down move. just in love with this guy

  • Drew

    did ya ever suck ** for coke?

    • Drew

      oh crap. It was suppose to be weed. Which ruins my joke.
      Me=fail

  • scottnar

    oops not in love is what I meant

  • pat

    I’ll have a coke. -boondock.

  • btour99

    Even though Ransom made that last play, I still felt my anger towards him rising… is this normal?

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

    i think we need some runs. how bout it..runs?

  • John

    Have a Coke and a smile

  • pat

    Johnny Damon came to play.

  • Andrew Smith

    way to start it off Johnny..

    I love Chris Ray.

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

      I love him too. Nasty stuff, just like to give up the homers …

  • Andrew Smith

    it’s a ballgame

  • A.D.

    ‘Sui

  • pat

    naysayers say what?

  • Reggie C.

    MATS!!!

  • Mike Pop

    GoDzILLA!!!!

  • Drew

    Holy Shit I fucking love it. Wheres met boy

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

    Bombs a way!!! asian persuasion

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

    Should have traded Matsui when they had a chance.

    • A.D.

      He has no knees!!!11!!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    I FUCKEING BENCHED MATSUI IN FANTASY!

  • Joey

    Sui!

  • Thomas

    GODZILLA!!!!!!

  • Mike Pop

    Matsui going to be Uuugggge this year!1

    • Drew

      I think so too. 20+ 100 100

  • pandaexpress

    There goes Tokyo.

  • pat

    I really hope coke comes out for the 7th.

  • Drew

    Dave Trembley remembering why he hates life…

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

    In game day, 2 of those 4 balls to Po were strikes. Is this ump a re-re or is game day off?

  • pat

    Oh Firestone, ICWUDT.

  • flashing007

    I love Matsui.

  • A.D.

    Swish hit for Ransom this time around the order?

    • BigBlueAL

      If a RHP is on the mound I would hope so.

  • BigBlueAL

    Nice to see Posada still has his power/patience combo still in tact.

  • Mike Pop

    Come on Robbie!

  • Drew

    If Joe thinks Pena can play third. He might save Swish to hit for gritner later.

    • Drew

      Whoops that was suppose to be a reply to A.D

    • A.D.

      Gritner is a better hitter than Ransom

      • Drew

        Yea but I said that would apply if Pena can’t play third…

  • Andrew Smith

    Cano is not a free swinger, per Joe Morgan.

    • Drew

      He swings for cash baby.

  • Joey

    I love me some Robbie with patience

  • http://mantisfists.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/julius-carry-aka-shonuff.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    Zaun looks older than Tremblay.

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

      Catcher are like porn stars. They age in dog years.

  • BigBlueAL

    Swisher better hit for Ransom now with a RHP coming in.

  • pat

    So in this grand year of 2009 who gets pulled for a defensive replacement first, Posada or Jeter?

    Kinda sucks we all know the answer is neither when we have arguably 2 of the best defenders in the league at those positions.

    • pat

      On our bench.

    • Chris K

      Jeez, X.

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

        uh, not as much against righties.

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

          not supposed to be her.damn

    • A.D.

      Realistically in this game they’re going to need to keep all the bats in the lineup until the end.

  • Jeremy

    Sarfate is in your hands.

  • marc resnick

    seriously nady is 0-5 vs sarfarte with 4 k’s

  • Mike Pop

    If the O’s had Joba in the pen……

  • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

    WTF, a yesnetwork.com commercial and no mention of RAB!

  • CP3

    Nady is going to die

  • BigBlueAL

    Of course.

  • JobaWockeeZ


    Put in teh Swish!

  • Drew

    Okay so Nady still sucks.

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

    why was nady hitting there? why didn’t they hit swish?

    • pat

      umm because nady is a good hitter.

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

        not so much against righties, except last year.

        • pat

          You don’t pinch hit for your starting Rf when cody ransom and brett gardner are playing. Especially when you named the RF as your starter over said pinch hitter. What kind of message does that send?

      • Drew

        .268 career in the AL. (only60 games but I’ll take any chance I can to bash the Xgirl.)

  • marc resnick

    now 0-6 with 4k’s and a dp

  • A.D.

    Nady doing his best Jeter

  • Mike Pop

    Nick Swisher.

  • Jake H

    Nady is killing me here.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I’m glad Nady is the starting RF!! He fits well with the Yankees and their gameplan of stranding runners that reach 2nd or 3rd base.

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

    Boy, Xavier Nady sure looks like he’d fit right in with those Dynasty Yankees.

    NOT.

  • marc resnick

    you dont pinch hit for nady because you need swisher to hit for ransom. If you’re gonna pinch hit for one of them you PH for ransom.

  • Kilgore Trout

    I think Nady just moved above Mauer on my list of most hated ballplayers.

  • BigBlueAL

    So what r the Yankees so far today with runners in scoring position?? A Damon Sac fly and Jeter’s infield hit which didnt turn into a run thanks to Nady pulling a boner. Still assumin Yanks win this game though….

  • BigBlueAL

    Shouldve hit Melky for Nady!!!!

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Nick Swisher ftw! To think I used to hate him.

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

    It takes some kind of special talent to walk Melvin Mora.

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

      yeah, especially from a guy who was 15:1 w/k ratio in spring. but he did it on purpose to get that double play.

  • A.D.

    Heh Coke almost hurt his own cause if he did field that ball.

  • Joey

    Aubrey is a girls name!

  • marc resnick

    maybe tex should do mroe than faux walk and bunt groundouts?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    This ump is pathetic btw.

  • Jake H

    I’m liking Coke.

  • Jake H

    I’m liking Coke.

  • Drew

    People, Pena has played 0 professional games at third. Why does everyone want to ph for Code man.

    • Mike Pop

      Cause, it helps the team win the game.

    • marc resnick

      because thats why he’s there… you gonna stick ransom and his 6 pro games at third? its moot. pena will be fine.

      • Drew

        Me = fail :)

  • CP3

    Yes Swish is up

  • Mike Pop

    Good going Coke, yo!

  • A.D.

    Coke just keeps cruising from his debut last year.

    Swisher was stretching out, we may see him here to leadoff

  • marc resnick

    now PH ransom with swish. takea chance at tying it with one swing.

  • BigBlueAL

    Phil Coke should get a drink named after him.

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

      Phil Coke should have a drug named after him.

      • Drew

        It’s a hell of a pitcher.

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

    Swisher better lead off this inning.

  • John

    Have another Coke and a smile

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    Phil Coke and Brian Bruney will shut up B-Jobbers.

    • Mike Pop

      No, the B-Jobbers will find fault somehow. Only Joba will be good enough for their 8th inning.

  • Drew

    Haha I flip over to seinfeld real quick and who do I see? Young Jetes and Bernie

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

    yeah swish

  • CP3

    the swish man

  • Reggie C.

    Swish is the man yo!

  • Joey

    SWISHER!!!!!

  • marc resnick

    there ya go.

  • Steve H

    SWISH!!

  • A.D.

    Nice double

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

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

    Fucking amazing, isn’t it? Go Swish.

  • Jake H

    Nady’s job is now gone.

  • giselle

    wow. ramiro pena is really cute.

    • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

      Something tells me your a guy with giselle as your username…

      • giselle

        damn, you’re good.

  • BigBlueAL

    Blah, wouldve let Gardner hit away there.

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

    Grit do it

  • A.D.

    The Grister small ballin

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    Can we have spill over thread v.2?

  • Drew

    Jeter=Bust

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

    damn jeet

  • BigBlueAL

    Why am I not surprised.

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

    Well, at least Derek didn’t hit into a double play.

    • Chris K

      Please Tex!

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

    Fucking retarded, why bunt? Here, have a free out. I have zero confidence in their ability to score this run.

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

      Brett Gardner.

      If it was almost anyone else in the lineup, I’d agree.

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

      small ball. the way of the future.

    • Mike

      I was going to say the exact same thing. I have always hated that. I can’t see any logic in giving up an out.

    • BigBlueAL

      Yup. I already posted as soon as he bunted I didnt like that play.

    • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

      He shouldve tried to drag bunt instead of just laying it down there and trying to get him over.

  • Drew

    Could we ask for anything more?

  • Steve H

    Come on Tex, shut these bitches up!!

  • Reggie C.

    teixeira doesn’t do small ball.

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

    bomb…please.
