Game Two: Far East Matchup


Wang & UeharaThe last time we saw Chien-Ming Wang take the mound was, well last Friday, but the last time we saw him take the mound in a game that actually meant something was June 15th of last year, when you know what happened. Wang said that ten month hiatus felt like five years, and I’m pretty sure we can all agree with that. He had a good spring, putting up a 4.15 ERA in 21.2 IP covering 6 starts, but hopefully he gets back to being the dominant groundball pitcher he was before the injury.

The Wanger will be opposed by Japanese import Koji Uehara, who will be making his North American debut. The first Japanese born player in Orioles history, Uehara is a nine year vet of the Japanese leagues, where he was a teammate of Hideki Matsui with the Yomiuri Giants. As Tyler Kepner noted, he won the Sawamura Award in 2002 (Cy Young equivalent), the same year Godzilla was named league MVP and Yomiuri won the league title. Uehara is known as an extreme strike thrower, racking up just 195 unintentional walks in 1,354 career innings (1.30 BB/9) on the other side of the lake. Those kind of pitchers have been known to give the Yanks’ fits, but hopefully they can buck that trend tonight.

Tiny bit of roster news before we get to the lineups: Dan Giese was claimed off waivers by the A’s. Judging by their current pitching situation, he might make it back in the bigs before long. We wish him well. Here’s tonight’s lineup, same as Monday’s:

Jeter, SS
Damon, LF
Teixeira, 1B
Matsui, DH
Posada, C
Cano, 2B
Nady, RF
Ransom, 3B
Gardner, CF

And on the mound, the Taiwanese Terror, Chien-Ming Wang.

Notes: I thought Chris Britton was getting the shaft with the Yanks, but the Padres sent him to Double-A. Poor guy … how do you define yourself as a Yankees fan? … don’t forget to vote in this week’s Fan Confidence Poll if you haven’t already … please consider contributing to our Pledge Drive benefitting Joe Torre’s Safe At Home Foundation if you haven’t already, it’s a great cause.

  1. Expired Milk says:

    I really wanted to see Burnett get the ball for game 2 but seeing Wang in a regular season game is good too.

  2. pat says:

    Ugh I see this guy giving us headaches. I sure hope I’m wrong.

  3. Vin R says:

    well Kei Igawa gave us headaches too. actually, more like migraines.

  4. Yankeegirl49 says:

    Im glad Burnett is going tomorrow, cause so am I!!

  5. Reggie C. says:

    Bold Prediction: I think Wang saves the season tonight!

  6. Slugger27 says:

    show em how u roll chien-ming

  7. RollingWave says:

    Rematch of the 2004 Athens olympics Taiwan vs Japan game (Wang blew the lead in the 7th after 6 inning of shutout and then Taiwan blew it in the 10th , ugggh)

  8. pat says:


  9. Tim says:

    Nice. C’mon Jeets. Let’s see if ya got any wheels.

  10. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    Baltimore fans are bitter just a little.

  11. Eric says:

    I’m watching the Baltimore braodcast and under his 2008 stat line it actually says “Native of Severna Park, Maryland”. O’s fans are so bitter.

  12. Tim says:

    I hate to hate on the guy, but it’s so easy to say that Tex has effectively taken A-Rod’s place (complete the joke here)

  13. pat says:

    Is this guy really throwing a 55 mph changeup?

  14. RollingWave says:

    Ugggh, when you don’t put together anything against a guy who only threw 50% strike in that inning, it’s not a good start.

  15. pete says:

    is anyone else having trouble getting the video to play on mlb.tv? I’ve logged in and it just shows me things i can buy. I’m pretty sure i’ve already bought them at least once or twice, and i’m worried they’ve charged me more than that. Why won’t an actual media player come up? I live in boston so the game shouldn’t be blacked out.

  16. Steve H says:

    Great article by Simmons on A-Rod and team chemistry.


    • Good article. If Alex got a few big hits in the postseason (like Reggie did) all the other stuff would be meaningless, or even better, part of WHY they succeeded in the eyes of the media. Then it becomes part of a winning formula.

      I’m reading a book on the 39 Yanks right now. Ty Cobb was considered to be a selfish ballplayer, what they called back then an ‘individual ballplayer’. Ruth was considered to be a show boater, they derisively called him ‘a fans player’. Honus Wagner and Lou Gehrig were thought of as team guys, called ‘a ballplayers player’ or ‘manager’s players’. Interestingly, the Yanks never won World Series with Gehrig unless Ruth or DiMaggio was on the team. The year Ruth left (1935), they fell to 89 wins and attendance dropped by 1/4.

      This shit goes back forever.

  17. Mike Axisa says:

    ZOMG teh Wang is only throwing 58!1!!

    • Eric says:

      MASN doesn’t even have a gun, I think I’m happier not knowing than seeing what the YES gun throws out there.

      • radnom says:

        I’m watching the MASN feed on MLB.tv and there is a radar reading for every pitch.

  18. Jamal G. says:

    Oof, Carlos Pena has started the season 0-for-5 with 5 K’s.

  19. RollingWave says:

    That woulda been a double / triple during the last 7 season

  20. Tim says:

    That’s the Wang i missed.

  21. pat says:

    Effing adam jones is going to haunt us forever.

  22. Chris K says:

    Seriously, Adam Jones what do you have against us?

  23. Mike Axisa says:

    I’m telling you, Adam Jones is going to hit 30 homers with a Gold Glove this year.

  24. John says:

    Adam Jones clearly is auditioning for big-deal from the Yanks

  25. Flynn says:

    Spring Training ended Saturday.

  26. Mike Axisa says:

    3 straight doubles = bad

    Please stop now.

  27. E-ROC says:

    Sinkerballers and their live arms…………

  28. Mike Axisa says:

    A-Rod would have had that shit. Bah.

  29. Tony says:

    I feel like we can’t beat the Orioles. It’s quite sad

  30. Mike Axisa says:

    Oh Lord, is Kay going to get into how much higher CMW’s ERA is with men on base than it is with the bases empty.

  31. Mister Delaware says:


  32. pat says:

    It’s alright 2 runs ain’t sh*t. CMW is a little geeked up to be back on the mound. Now that they have a taste for blood the O’s are gonna be slamming the sinker into the dirt for the next 6 innings.

  33. Kaitlin B. says:

    There’s another 8 innings left, so there is no need to panic. Wang will settle in, the offense will get to Uehara, and we won’t have to listen to more panic from the rags tomorrow.

    Positivity now! Positivity forever (or until the 7th inning)!

  34. Uehara will struggle the second and third time around, unless he breaks out something offspeed (slider, curve, etc.). I can’t imagine that fastball/change combo will work once everyone sees both. He got Tex on the change, which now he’ll have seen the second time around.

  35. southernyankeefan says:

    not the inning i was hoping for from wang. his change up is looking nasty though.

    • GoTerpsGo says:

      Very nice offspeed pitch low and diving away. C’mon Wanger put ‘em in their place – on the bench!

  36. John says:

    Posada looks a little like Peja Stojakovic (sp?)

  37. Jamal G. says:

    Robbie Cano is the man.

  38. Jamal G. says:

    Hey, Mike Pelfrey, how about you develop a second pitch before you pitch to Joey Votto with two men on base.

  39. A.D. says:

    Alright Cano stealing bases, I guess on Zaun might as well go.

  40. RollingWave says:

    Cano walk twice and stole a base within 2 game? what the?

  41. RichYF aka sooooo tired of the "namedrop says hello" meme says:

    A-Rod doesn’t beat that out.

  42. Mike Axisa says:

    I really would like one of the unclutch three run homers in the first three innings out of A-Rod right now.

  43. Jamal G. says:

    Come on, Gardner, be all clutch and shit.

  44. A.D. says:

    Ransom getting lucky need the Gritster to get a hit

  45. Chris K says:

    20 push-ups, Gardner.

  46. AJ says:

    Let’s hope the Yanks don’t feel like stranding all their runners in scoring position tonight.

    And what is up with Wang? Let’s get those pitches down buddy. Felix Pie should not be driving it deep like that.

  47. Shamik says:

    Wang needs to get the ball down! WTF is he doing giving up all these deep fly balls

  48. Jamal G. says:

    Jose Reyes’ lazy Dominicaness just cost the Mets a run.

  49. RollingWave says:

    minus the big fly from Pie this was a lot more Wangish inning

  50. A.D. says:

    Tomorrow is a day game, lame

  51. southernyankeefan says:

    why doesn’t YES get a new radar gun

  52. andrew says:

    Mike Pop – if you’re out there – I’m sure you saw the Jets are meeting with Miles Austin this weekend… how do you feel? Hang in there… I’m not sure if he’ll go though, not with a #2 role in Dallas waiting for him.


  53. A.D. says:

    Damn Lester has 5ks in 2 innings

  54. pat says:

    Haha Mora you suck.

  55. pat says:

    or Arod in any stadium, Ken.

  56. A.D. says:

    Umm maybe the Matsui “scouting report” isn’t that great since he hasn’t played in Japan since 2002.

  57. Shamik says:

    can the yankees get a timely hit!?!? Cmon Tex!

  58. RollingWave says:

    Why can’t Igawa pitch like this guy? bah

  59. Shamik says:

    find the damn strike zone wang!

  60. Frank says:

    Oh, wow Brian Roberts is on base…

    And when can we officially add Adam Jones to the “Yankee Killer” list? If he’s still batting 1.000 after this game you’d have to consider it.

  61. A.D. says:

    Straight gunned down

  62. Kaitlin B. says:

    Brian Roberts, all your base is belong to us!!!

  63. Raf says:

    nice f’ing job jorge!

  64. Chip says:

    Well Posada is looking good

  65. pat says:

    Nice dig tex.

  66. RollingWave says:

    every play at 3rd has been an adventure, ugggh.

  67. A.D. says:

    Tex saving Ransom’s ass

  68. Tony says:

    We actually got adam jones out ! lol

  69. Eric says:

    There has been some odd baserunning in this series so far

  70. radnom says:

    Wow. Who knew it was so nice having a 1st basemen who actually can play the field?

  71. Frank says:

    In slow mo… it actually seemed like Wang’s “sinker” floated upward in that hit by Markakis.

  72. Jamal G. says:

    I say Matsui has been the greatest Japanese player because he gives you OBP and above-average power. Ichiro is just a speedy contact hitter with no power (and league-average, at best, on-base skills) at a corner-outfield position.

  73. pat says:

    I was kinda thinking Pena might get the start at 3b tonight with Wangs GB preponderance.

  74. RichYF aka sooooo tired of the "namedrop says hello" meme says:

    Mora – *some* unknown substance = Cody Ransom?

  75. southernyankeefan says:

    has wang shown his slider yet?

  76. Drew says:

    Just had to listen to John and Susan for a fucking hour. I have never been so happy as I am now to listen to Kay.

  77. Shamik says:

    ok lets get a run this inning

  78. Frank says:

    This guy Uehara is pissing me off. His stuff is atrocious and he’s really lucking out.

  79. Mike Axisa says:

    Nick Markakis, best outfielder in the AL not named Grady? I think so.

  80. John says:

    cmon offense!!!

  81. Frank says:

    I think Pedroia sold his soul to the devil. Tommy Johnson style….

    “Well he taught me to swing this here bat reeaal good.”

  82. Mike says:

    correct me if i’m wrong, but it seems like over the past few years they have always gotten shutdown by pitchers they faced for the first time

  83. Drew says:

    cmon cody. get one broski.

  84. Mike Axisa says:

    I take back everything bad I’ve said about Ransom.

  85. Frank says:

    God this team is SOOO much better without A-Rod!!!

  86. JobaWockeeZ says:


  87. A.D. says:

    Alright Ransom

  88. Rich says:

    Way to shut me up, Ransom.

  89. RollingWave says:

    Cody doing the first useful thing of the season

  90. Joey says:

    Ransom! A-Rod would have never hit that, he’s not clutch

  91. southernyankeefan says:

    yeah cody

  92. John says:

    About time!

  93. Drew says:

    How long till we call him brett instead of grit.

  94. Mike Axisa says:

    61 pitches, six outs for Pelfrey. Yikes.

  95. Frank says:

    Every time I look at Kevin Youkilis’ face, I look forward to the future to the inevitable time when Joba will be firing a baseball into it.

  96. Rich says:

    It’s not unimportant for Wang to put up a 0 this inning.

  97. Shamik says:

    wang needs a quick inning. How about one of those classic double plays

  98. Frank says:

    This gets ugly if Wang doesn’t find it soon. He’s lucky it’s 2-1.

  99. pat says:

    Anybody watching the Yankees bonus cam?

  100. Kaitlin B. says:

    Scott Kazmir does not know the meaning of the word efficiency.

    And Wang has about three too many walks.

  101. cuponoodles says:

    Wanger having trouble finding the strike zone…

  102. mko says:

    You gotta hate the pitching woes in the early games. Spring training was soooooo long this year and still they can’t get off to a hot start with good stuff?

  103. Mike says:

    Am I the only one who finds that pop up noise in the corner annoying on YES? It reminds me of Pop-Up Video from the 90s on VH1.

  104. Shamik says:

    oh the pain…2 on no outs

  105. Shamik says:

    wang is pulling a CC

  106. Kaitlin B. says:

    Well, at this point, I’m thinking that we could do with a long man. Who’s with me?

  107. Mike says:

    sigh. Talk about blueballs after how these guys played in the preseason….

  108. southernyankeefan says:

    man this is painful

  109. Drew says:

    60 mph per hour pitch. is it that hard to get a gun.

  110. pat says:

    Robbie made that look effortless.

  111. Shamik says:

    yes i think we pull wang. His sinker isnt working

  112. Kaitlin B. says:

    I’m thinking that the staff will soon reel off five straight shutouts and bring the team ERA somewhere south of 14.00. At least, I hope so.

  113. Tony says:

    Not over yet!

  114. Smitt Dog says:

    This place is restricted Wang, so don’t tell them you’re Jewish!

  115. Rich says:

    He’s got nothing.

  116. Smitt Dog says:

    Jesus christ Wang! Whats with all the pictures? It’s a parking lot!

  117. Frank says:

    Has Wang thrown a slider?

  118. Mike Pop says:

    You suck Wang!!! We finished!

  119. pat says:

    Second game of the season, a night game, the yankees are in town and the stadium is only half full. Yet these d-bags in b-more are mad that tex didn’t want to come play there for less money. Go eff yourselves.

  120. southernyankeefan says:

    wang is out there throwing meatballs

  121. Drew says:

    I love how Nady doesn’t try to throw TOWARDS home.

  122. Shamik says:

    u have to get wang out after this inning. he just doesnt have his sinker going tonight

  123. Mike Pop says:

    Well, I think we know the main reason why the Yanks are losing right now.

    I know Wallace Matthews knows.

  124. mko says:

    One thing I was really hoping to see out of the Yankees this season: Winning series. Doesn’t look too good for the first one right now. But it’s only the fourth inning.

  125. pat says:

    So awesome

  126. Frank says:

    Yankees rotation is teh awesome!!1!1!

  127. Rich says:

    Any rain in the forecast?

  128. K.B.D. says:

    Well… looks like it’s up to Burnett to salvage the series.

  129. Smitt Dog says:

    Let’s get one tomorrow night fellas… No game is over till its over, but this one has all the markings of a 16-3 prison raping…

  130. southernyankeefan says:

    ha that sucks but did anyone notice the old school clip playing on the big screen?

  131. RollingWave says:

    dsafasdfasdf don’t pull a fucking Detroit damnit

  132. mustang says:

    hummm… i wonder where i seen a start like this before… Oh yes last year.


    • Mike Pop says:


      I love when you put lol in all caps after you say something you think is funny. It cracks me up more than your actual joke. Keep it up, mustang, baby!

      • mustang says:

        I’m happy at least I’m entertaining you seem like the Yankees didn’t want that job tonight.

  133. Shamik says:

    thanks wang….great game!

  134. Matt K says:

    Does anyone know where wangs slider was tonight??? I dont believe he threw it even once. sorry if this has already been discussed.

  135. mko says:

    Well, the Phillies came back from 3-10 down…LET’S GO!

  136. Flynn says:

    Heck of an effort by Wang tonight. Proving again why he is a #4.

  137. pat says:

    The lonely stoner likes to free his mind at night.

  138. Mattingly's Love Child says:

    I think Rick Suttcliffe has an illicit relationship with Aki Iwamura……he has creamed his pants each time Iwamura has done anything.

  139. Shamik says:

    atleast lester is getting roughed up

  140. Drew says:

    Who has the worst outfield in the AL?

  141. Rich says:

    Put at least one run on the board this half inning.

  142. Frank says:

    Tomorrow Burnett’s arm falls off…

    In Kansas City… Joba shows up to the ballpark drunk after drinking some firewater with the local Chiefs.

    Andy is then reunited with Roger Clemens.

    0-5. A perfect week!

  143. Expired Milk says:

    Wang did not rise to the equation

  144. southernyankeefan says:

    well glad that inning is over

  145. AJ says:

    The second terrible effort by the starters. I’m not too worried about it right now – it’s still early. But two nights in a row and the pitchers can’t locate their pitches? Ugh, it always sucks to lose to the O’s, and the Yanks have been getting good at it lately.

    It would be perfect to have Tomko or Geise right now in the ‘pen. I know, Geise is in Oakland now. But a long reliever would be great to mop up some innings.

    The Phillies came back today from nine down, so the Yankees can come back in this.

  146. Drew says:


  147. Frank says:

    Both Damon and Jeter have been hitting the ball well… But has Damon gotten a hit WHILE Jeter is one base? Has he even advanced him?

  148. Drew says:

    Let’s see if he pops it up again.

  149. Drew says:

    The hattrick!!

  150. Mike Pop says:

    Tex, you’re overpaid, you bum.

  151. cuponoodles says:

    I’m still a believer CMW :-(

    Seriously though, no way we go down with Alfredo Simon on the mound toms.

  152. AJ says:

    I know he’s a slow starter, but how can Tex be fooled the same way three straight times? C’mon Tex, help us out here.

  153. Mattingly's Love Child says:

    Holy FUCK! Rick Suttcliffe is a bigger moron than I thought!

    He thinks that Wang is an injury risk this year because he hurt himself running last year!!!!11!!!!!!!!

    Looks like the ole Wednesday night baseball is going on mute…

  154. What time is DOTF getting posted? We need something to look forward to…

  155. southernyankeefan says:

    everyone of texiera’s at bats tonight have ended in a similar way

    • Frank says:

      Don’t forget yesterday.

      And our starting pitchers have yet to record a strikeout. My money is on A.J. for one or two though.

  156. Philly won a game this afternoon that they were trailing 10-3.

  157. YankeeHater says:

    This is great !!!!
    Wang gets smacked up and this rookie Japanese pitcher looks like Cy Young agaisnt this over rated crap lineup. Now go ahead and pull out your charts and graphs about how good Wang’s curveball looked.LOL.

  158. fatboy says:

    0 combined strikeouts from starters so far. boo ya!

  159. AJ says:

    Michael Kay made a good point – this ‘pen is going to be gassed by the end of the weekend. Burnett has to go at least six innings tomorrow.

  160. YankeeHater says:

    By the way. I can’t wait till the Yankees come to Boston. Beckett,Lester,Dice-K,Wakefield and Penny > Fat Boy,Wang,AJ,Petitte and Drunkin Hick.

  161. Drew says:

    lol gassed? bruney’s gotten two outs, albie one, edwar 4, Coke 7, Veras 0, Mo 0.

  162. Jake H says:

    I’m loving the effort tonight. Tex has looked terrible in every plate apperance.

  163. YankeeHater says:

    Your right,Wang does not have a curveball,fastball,slider or sinker tonight.LOL. I really can’t wait to see the charts and graphs on what he did have,besides whiplash.

  164. Drew says:

    At least someone looks good so far! Jorge got his bat goin early.

  165. Rich says:

    Build on it…

  166. Shamik says:

    double with no outs. Lets get 2 runs atleast here

  167. KelvinPHP says:

    wow.. the comments so far had been, a bit ‘you-know-what’-like.

  168. Mike Axisa says:

    On the bright side, Cano’s killing the ball early.

  169. C.Panella says:

    Here we go Chip…chip…chip away!

  170. Rich says:

    I <3 the new Cano.

  171. southernyankeefan says:

    alright posada everybody put your rally caps on

  172. Frank says:

    I guess the Yanks weren’t in the mood for Japanese tonight.

  173. Drew says:

    Come on X! prove me wrong pleaseeeee

  174. KelvinPHP says:

    Cano’s looking good so far.

  175. Manimal says:

    So, how about that Longman in the bullpen?

  176. Drew says:

    Call it unlucky, call it what you want. get the fuckin run in.

  177. C.Panella says:

    Zomg why was the SS where he was supposed to be!!!

  178. C.Panella says:

    Ok well ive offically giving up on cody RUSH AROD NOW!!!

  179. Frank says:

    Hit it on the floor Grit.

  180. Yankee1010 says:

    Got to love the way the offense is coming up with the big hit. It’s nice to see the RISP woes of last year are long gone.

  181. C.Panella says:

    w0w you gatta be kidding me cant get that damn run in so sick

  182. Rich says:

    Bottom third bottoming out.

  183. Mike Pop says:

    Who has a time machine? Lets go back to opening day.

    (Not worried, just wanted better games). Ya know, it’s A-Rod’s fault.

  184. Eric says:

    There aren’t a lot of things more frustrating than having a runner on 3rd with no outs and not getting a run in

  185. Man on third, no outs and can’t score him. I mean, its not likely you come back from 7-1 to begin with, but with that type of putrid situational hitting you sure aren’t coming back.

  186. Drew says:

    okay, its brett until he earns the grit title. I see his ST swing is yet to fly to b-more.

  187. southernyankeefan says:

    geez that is sad

  188. Manatee Community College says:

    Missed opportunities are so frustrating

  189. Manimal says:

    Melky would not have had that.

  190. Mike Pop says:

    Michael Kay is just awesome. “Oop, changeup!”

  191. Rich says:

    At least Gardner brought his glove.

  192. Rich says:


  193. Drew says:

    But he’s sooooo old!

  194. I remember when the Yanks left Alby out there against Detroit because they didn’t have a long man setup. Basically threw him until his elbow gave out. You almost forget how good he was before he got hurt.

    • Nathan says:

      Yeah, I really hope Girardi doesn’t destroy his arm again this year. Just because we have a ton of possible bullpen candidates in AAA doesn’t mean that we should start using them all

  195. Phrancis says:

    Yanks should clone Cano.

    Hey! what the heck, atleast Red Sox is losing.

  196. Ramirez is a 3 outcome Pitcher.

    Walk, Strikeout, or Grand Slam.

  197. southernyankeefan says:

    Tex is gonna get a hit this inning i feel it

  198. Drew says:

    It’s amazing what defense can do…

  199. Rich says:

    This idea that anything less than winning the WS is a failure for the Yankees is starting to ring hollow when they haven’t won a playoff round since 2004.

  200. YankeeHater says:

    I have some good news Yankee fans. You guys get to play the Royals next. Maybe you can squeeze out a win. Now excuse me while I take a Teixera and flush the CC.

  201. Matt says:

    So, um, should I just be glad I’m not watching tonight?

  202. Yankees < Dog Poo says:

    How is that for a better name.LOL.
    Yankees are going to open the new stadium with a 1 and 8 record.LOL. Now that is funny.

  203. Andrew S says:

    Tex is just embarrassing at the plate right now.

  204. AJax have a hit tonight?

  205. B.George says:

    Is it just me or is Jonathan Albaledjo the future 8th inning man?

    • Rich says:

      Maybe the near future. I think Melancon is the future.

      • B.George says:

        The kid has good stuff has yet to get hit hard in the majors and doesnt walk anyone I think he is made for the 8th inning

  206. fatboy says:

    Is there an up-to-minute (or close to) minor league scoreboard (box scores)? minorleaguebaseball.com sucks for that…

  207. Rammo says:

    If we shot out of the gate mowing everyone down everyone would say we bought it. When we finally put it together (and we will) they will know it’s not so easy even with the big bucks.

    • Drew says:

      That’s one way to look at it. I look at it as we’re about to lose 2 in a row to the O’s.

  208. Drew says:

    lol at swisher coming in now… at least some one can work an AB

  209. pat says:

    Jeets keeps it from being a total embarrassment.

  210. Drew says:

    That one run that was left on 3rd with 0 outs looms large..

  211. Tony says:

    Jeter’s wheelchair doesn’t rust until June

  212. Manimal says:

    Tex better show some balls here

  213. pat says:


  214. KelvinPHP says:


  215. A.D. says:

    lets go ‘Sui

  216. Manimal says:

    Maybe he used Swisher too early…Matsui vs a Lefty ugh

  217. Manimal says:

    God damn, I bet you arod would’ve done his April magic.

    • El Generalissimo says:

      EXACTLY, the loss is clearly on Arod, he would have hit a HR there and it would have been written off. WHO GETS HURT!?

  218. Drew says:

    WOOHOO!! we scored 10 runs in two games!

  219. Brandon P. says:

    There’s always next season

  220. KelvinPHP says:

    Let’s just win the next game.

  221. Eh, it’s two games. 160 left. 160-2 baby!

  222. pat says:

    Bummer, you score 5 runs in games started by sabathia and wang, you pretty much expect to win both of those. Oh well.

  223. anonymous says:

    Another opposite field line drive for Giambi.

    At least my love affair with Zack Greinke continues:

    6IP, 3H, 7K

  225. A.D. says:

    ****Potential Mets bullpen implosion alert****

  226. A.D. says:

    Its a bizzare 9th at Shea
