Game 24: Now we’re on to something

You lose some, you win some back
Game 24 Spillover Thread

CC ready to goSo, what can the team do to improve upon it’s best game of the season? Well, for starters, CC Sabathia could pitch like he did in his last start in Detroit, when he was saddled with one of those yucky complete game losses. Sabathia was outstanding despite the L, allowing just three hits and one run outside of the three run sixth inning. Hopefully we get more of the same this afternoon.

Sabathia will be opposed by 30-year rookie Matt Palmer, a righty journeyman that go this first taste of the big leagues last year with the Giants. He’ll be making his second start of the season. That usually spells disaster for the Yanks, but it hasn’t so far this year.

Nick Swisher out of today’s lineup after being plunked in the back of the elbow yesterday, but thankfully he says he’s okay and is just a little sore. Jorge Posada is also out of the lineup because he’s caught the last three games and it’s a day game after a night game. No need to burn him out this early in the year. Here’s the lineup:

Jeter, SS
Damon, LF
Teixeira, 1B
Matsui, DH
Cano, 2B
Melky, RF
Molina, C
Pena, 3B
Gardner, CF

And on the mound, the Nightmare from Norcal, CC Sabathia.

    I think if 6-9 can get 6 hits between them, the Yankees win handily.

      ill take that in a heartbeat

  • pat

    Awesomely enough, our little penchant for letting journeymen or junkball lefties pwn us has not been present this year. The only guy who has really made us look bad was Verlander and he was otherworldly that night in Detroit. I like having molina catch the big cat, they both do an excelletn job of controlling the running game. We should really mop the floor with these guys so we can play with house money tomorrow.

  • GG

    CC is 6’7 and is listed at 290, do I believe that?? Seems kinda light for such a big man.

  • Steve in MN

    Best possible defensive team we can field, bodes well for Carsten.

    CC is going to turn into he-man today!

    can i ask whats wrong with marte? is he hurt, or does girardi just hate him?

    they signed him for 3 years, they obviously think hes good… i just dont get why hes never used

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

    Kay and Flaherty are the worst tandum for YES.

    You reading this Michael Kay????!???

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

      What? Now your name links to a picture of AJ AND CC? You two-timing bastard.

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

        Heh. After A.J. gave up the lead in Boston, I gave up on him winning the Cy Young. Kinda like Matt ACTY did on UConn.

        But I’m jk, well not bout Matt giving up on his teams.

          Question: Was I right?
          Answer: Yes.

          Question: Did you lose the bracket tournament to me?
          Answer: Yes.

          Question: Am I more of a man than you could even hope to be?
          Answer: Yes.

          Question: Are you bad at spelling?
          Answer: Yes. It’s spelled “tandem” not “tandum”.

    Awesome.

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

    7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 Ks for CC. Book it.

      He won’t walk 2.

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

    I like it.

  • Chris K

    What a ghetto lineup.

    Get back soon, Bitch Tits.

    • Jersey

      This lineup is F-U-G-L-Y.

      Of course, Melky has been hitting and Molina and Pena have had their clutch hits recently, so maybe it’s better than it looks on paper. Let’s hope.

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

      But the grit.

    • Steve H

      IETC

        So….what does IETC mean?

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

          I enjoyed this comment.

          • Jersey

            LOL. Awesome.

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

    Ladies and gentlemen, CC Sabathia.

    • Will (the other one)

      Nice to see him back to actually daring the batter to his his stuff. He looks so much more confident than he has his last couple of first innings.

  • Jersey

    Hrh, two straight K’s on checked swings. Don’t see that often.

  • cuponoodles

    Charles in charge with a good start…

  • Brooklyn Ed

    Greetings from the game live…Seriously, Jetes being plunked already? wtf.

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

    That’s Matt Palmer playing the game the right way and throwing inside.

    *later in the game, CC has just plunked Torii Hunter*

    That’s just a cheap shot. No room for that in this game.

  • Jersey

    Jete flashing his wheels.

  • Jake H

    I wish I had the game. I have to use gameday to follow.

    Damn, Jeets has 5 steals already? I like it.

      Well, A-Rods did want

      Well, A-Rods does want Reyes on the Yankees.

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

        Haha, IETC.

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

        Weird…

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

    Ouch.

  • Accent Shallow

    Was hoping Jeter hit Aybar in the groin.

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

    Ouch, that hurt both guys.

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

      What happened? It just says “injury delay” on gameday.

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

        Jeter stole second, throw from the catcher bounced off the dirt, hit Jeter in the helmet as he was sliding and ricocheted into Aybar’s face and split his lip open. Jete’s fine, Aybar’s out of the game.

      • Jersey

        When Jeter stole 2nd, the throw bounced and hit Aybar square in the face.

  • Matt M.

    ouch that sucks

  • Jersey

    Sterling and Waldman are pretty well horrified. Did it look bad for Aybar?

    • Accent Shallow

      Looked like Jeter’s head caught Aybar in the thigh, and the throw hit him (Aybar) in the face on the bounce.

    • Matt M.

      it ricocheted of jeters helmet and hit aybar on the left side of the face…pretty hard

  • Jake H

    Yanks have no speed right?

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

    Why’d he cut that off?

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

    Matsui’s done, should have traded him for a bag of balls when they had the chance.

  • Accent Shallow

    Reports of Hideki Matsui’s demise have been greatly exaggerated.

    Reports of his porn collection, however, are entirely accurate.

    • Jersey

      And the size of his gigantic head.

    • Matt M.

      not to mention the paper cuts from his ‘wife’

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

    Tex!

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

      And Matsui!

  • daneptizl

    Maybe Cano is just so damn slow.

    • Accent Shallow

      For a middle infielder who has nice range, he’s surprisingly slow.

      • daneptizl

        He looks like he’s smoothly, but slowly carrying luggage.

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

      He didn’t run out of the box at first because he thought it was foul.

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

        He didn’t run out of the box at first because he thought it was foul is lazy.

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

    Drat, would have been nice to get another run in there. Oh well. Go get ’em CC.

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

    That looked like a good swing my Melky. I thought he ripped it at first because of the shattered bat.

  • Jersey

    I’ll take the one run, but with a man on 3rd and less than 2 outs, gotta get him in.

  • Accent Shallow

    Maybe Palmer isn’t as bad as you would think, given that’s he’s a 30 year old Rookie?

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

      One inning.

      • Accent Shallow

        I was talking stuff-wise; that cutter really tied up Robbie and Melky.

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

          Oops, my fault.

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

    Tori Hunter is so, so sad that CC and Mark aren’t on his team.

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

      And Manny.

  • Drew

    Did the real CC show up today? I think so.

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

      Spoke too soon..

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

        I did!

      • Drew

        Nahhhh, son.

  • Accent Shallow

    Think they send Napoli? Oy.

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

    Man, the $6 I paid for Jorge Posada is working out so awesomely for me – especially since Ryan Doumit is down. I now have Posada and Mike Napoli as my two starters.

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

      Mike Napoli = breakout year.

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

        He would’ve been widely regarded as a breakout player last year if that fucking idiot, Scioscia, would’ve played him more.

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

          I know. I looked at his stats after the year and it was just mind boggling that he didn’t get more PAs. Well, once I realized what manager I was dealing with, my mind was done being boggled.

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

            Yeah, the Angels don’t like players like Wood, guys who could occasionally hit the ball over an outfielder.

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

              All bunting, all the time.

  • Ivan

    CC looks like he has great stuff today.

  • Drew

    They don’t want to test the Melkman.

  • Accent Shallow

    Wood has power, but at least he’s a K machine.

    • Accent Shallow

      !

    • Sad Panda

      A regular Nostradamas

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

    Alright, alright, CC. You don’t have to get their hopes up. Just dominate them w/o letting the bases loaded and one out.

  • Ivan

    Carefull, one swing wood can crush one.

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

    How good is Brandon Wood, MLB comparison?

    • Ivan

      Right now he looks like a righthanded Russell Bryant.

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

    I love having strikeout pitchers.

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

      Ditto. How long has it been since the Yankees had three legit K guys like CC, A.J. and Joba?

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

        Not since the dynasty years. Oh, and don’t forget the Phranchise.

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

          Yeah I was gonna say, not to mention Hughes. Next year is gonna be awesome–could have three guys w/200+ Ks, and Hughes could probably get 160-180 w/enough innings.

  • Ivan

    If Mike S. wasn’t the manager of the Angels, u think Wood would of gotten more playing time overall?

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

      Yes.

    • Drew

      Dunno, there must be something wrong with him but his number look good for the past 4 years.

      • Accent Shallow

        He strikes out a lot. As in, around 1/3 of his ABs in the minors. He might make Ryan Howard look like Juan Pierre in terms of strikeouts.

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

    Ace.

  • Accent Shallow

    Can’t complain about that.

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

    Nice job workin’ outta that jam CC.

  • JT

    Can somebody tell me what channel the game is on?
    I have Extra Innings package and it isn’t showing on the schedule….

    • Ivan

      It’s on YES.

  • JT

    Shit, for some reason the Extra Innings package isn’t carrying it. I want my money back

  • Accent Shallow

    Here’s hoping one of the 7-8-9 hitters can get on base this inning.

  • Drew

    At least Jose saw some pitches. I’ll take that.

  • Sad Panda

    Im just hoping they can at least eat up some pitch count.

  • zs190

    Similar to Mark Reynolds for the DBacks probably. Won’t hit for average, very good power, strikes out a lot. He’s better defensively though, seems like a good many evaluators think he can be a serviceable shortstop.

    • zs190

      oops, this was meant to be a reply to earlier question about Brandon Wood’s comps.

  • Ivan

    Iight who wins gmae 7? Celtics or Bulls?

    I picked the Celts the win the series as soon as it started, so obviously im sticking wit em.

  • Accent Shallow

    I’m liking Pena’s approach so far. Seems patient, but not passive, like Gardner seems to be.

    • JT

      Gardner actually has some nice at bats, sees some pitches, fouls some off. That’s one of the few things I have liked about him at the plate.
      (Not counting that last at bat)

  • Drew

    Ramiro has a nice swing.

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

    Good job by the bottom of the order working deep counts.

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

      Aaaaaand Gardner fucks it up.

  • Drew

    Wow, Wang and Al in the same game. Sweet.

  • Sad Panda

    Poor Brett Gardner

  • Jake H

    Gardner needs to start swinging earlier in the count. He’s letting balls right down the middle go by him early in the count.

    • Drew

      He can’ hit fast balls right down the middle.

      • Drew

        can’t*

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

      What I don’t get is how he’s gotten this far barely using his legs in his swing.

  • Drew

    Nationals are 5 – 17, sucks for them.

  • Ivan

    I don’t know about u guys, but I can’t wait for Hughes to pitch tomorrow.

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

      Word.

      • JT

        The only thing I am more excited about is being excited about Phil Hughes again.

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

    Ah, good ol’ weak-noodled Chone Figgins.

  • Ivan

    CC is really pitching out there.

  • Jersey

    Christ. Sterling is on his soapbox ranting about the media and their coverage of all the empty seats at the New Stadium.

  • Drew

    Wow that was a strike.

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

    Not only did Gameday have that as a strike, but he definitely swung.

    • Yankee1010

      I’m guessing that they were waiting for him to swing his whole body around 360 degrees with the bat in his hands. And he wasn’t far off from doing that.

    • Accent Shallow

      These umps seem to think that any attempt to check your swing is a check swing.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    I like Girardi yelling at the ump. Torre would have been napping by now.

    • Accent Shallow

      In his defense, it’s a nice, warm, relaxing spring afternoon.

    • Matt M.

      ietc

  • Jake H

    I love it when the ump squuezes pitchers.

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

    Uh oh, Gary. I don’t think this one’s got the distance.

    • JT

      Worth every penny….

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

    De-fense! Clap, clap; de-fense!

  • Drew

    Yay!! Melky!

  • Accent Shallow

    Howie Kendrick failing is so delicious.

  • Ivan

    Nice play Melky.

  • Sad Panda

    Thank you Kendrick

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

    Melky with a sparkler, according to Kay. A sparkler.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Gardner and Melky dueling in the outfield. Might not make them better at the plate but it works for defense. Or it has worked today.

  • Stryker

    melky!

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

    Was a nice play but not as nice as Kay made it out to be.

  • zs190

    Howie Kendrick is like Cano-lite.

  • Drew

    CC has a lot of pitches so far, 52. Hopefully we get a quick inning soon.

  • Sad Panda

    Need to run this “kid”s pitch count up

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

    Really?

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

    WHAT?!?! That was completely foul.

  • Yankee1010

    And that was completely foul. Great job by the umps today.

  • Drew

    Dude how can the 1st base ump even see it. the fucking glove was blocking it.

    • Yankee1010

      He couldn’t and he was completely wrong. That’s a nice pair of calls from the 1st base ump after completely missing the Matthews swing. I’m curious about what the next call up his sleeve is.

  • Accent Shallow

    BS.

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

    That’s cake for Gary Mathhews Jr.

  • Drew

    eh.. how about not sucking Teix?

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

      I know he’ll turn it around but it’s starting to get to me now.

      • Drew

        Yeah the worst part is that there’s nothing he can even do. Eventually it’ll just click. At least we have something to look forward too.

  • V

    Anyone else absolutely disgusted by the awful umpires?

    • Yankee1010

      Yes, but that’s just what I now expect from officials in all sports. They’re incredibly crappy.

  • V

    Anyone else absolutely disgusted by the awful umpires?

  • Matt M.

    i hate how this stadium makes me expect every shot hit into RF to be a HR.

  • V

    I’m so disgusted I had to say it twice, rofl.

    • Jersey

      I’m disgusted by your double posts.

      =)

  • Sad Panda

    Tex really needs to pick it up soon.

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

      .186 BABIP including today. The hits will come.

      • Accent Shallow

        Agreed, but it’s not like he’s been smoking line drives at people.

  • Alex

    Tex is terrible!!!!

  • Matt-Pitt

    Way to work the count that inning… Our offense is pretty impatient today. Can’t wait till Teix is going right. Even hanging curves are getting popped up by him.

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

    Jesus Montero ranked 17th in Project Prospect’s top-25 prospect list: http://projectprospect.com/article/2009/05/01/top-25-prospect-list

    • Drew

      Yo does that 37 up mean he jumped 37 spots from the preseason rankings?

      • zs190

        Pretty sure he was 37th pre-season, so 20 spots higher.

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

        No, that he jumped from ranking no. 37.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      My only problem with that list is that if you are in the majors, you shouldn’t be on it.

  • Sad Panda

    Good, get that double play set up

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

    Juan Miranda = Kendry Morales?

    • Drew

      Morales is a switch hitter and I think Miranda is better.

  • Blackdragon905

    Do you guys prefer day games or night games? Me personally, I enjoy night games. It’s something I look forward to all day. In day games, once the game is over, I don’t know what to do lol. However, my girlfriend enjoys day games better. Just curious though.

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

      4:00 games on weekdays baby!

    • Drew

      Night games during the week, day games on the weekend.

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

      I like night games better in just about every way, especially in person. Dunno why, just do.

    • whozat

      I live on the west coast, so I kinda love the 1 PM EDT games. I get up, have a little breakfast, watch the game, eat lunch and I have a whole day ahead of me.

      You’re all about the trivia lately.

      • Stryker

        hahahaha i know. something’s gotta keep my mind sharp!

  • zzzzzz

    Question: how many more games could we have won in april if Pena was starting and not ransom??

    just thinking outloud. the kid is impressive.

    • Drew

      True but if he played more in April he probably wouldn’t be hitting 300+.

    • whozat

      One, maybe.

  • Accent Shallow

    Nice play from CC there.

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

    Cat-like reflexes from CC.

  • Jake H

    The ump isn’t calling any low strikes.

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

    Outside of Elvis Andrus and Alcides Escobar, was there a better defensive short stop on the farm than Ramiro Pena? Carlos Triunfel? Heh, Todd Frazier, maybe?

    • Accent Shallow

      Word around USS Mariner is that Triunfel is gonna have to move to 2B or 3B at some point.

  • rally caps

    I think this is the longest period of time (4 innings) that Coors Field East has gone without giving up a homer! Heyyy

  • Matt M.

    YES, we’ve found our missingpiece of trade bate !!!

    hokay so we package Pena, Melky and IPK for HAMILTON or for someone to pitch teh 8th inning !!1!1!1!!

    • Drew

      How many people looked at that and thought about switching IPK for Hughes and adding another bat? I did.. lol

  • Accent Shallow

    Are we really talking about LaTroy Hawkins and number 21 again?

  • whozat

    It pisses me off that Kay is so gleeful that he ringlead a moronic witch hunt against a guy who DARED to wear the number of a guy who was on the Yankees for like…half his own career.

  • Drew

    These umpires are horrible.

  • whozat

    So…a journeyman righty that sucks against lefty batters and loves to walk them…and we have one run here? He’s retired 10 guys in a row?

    • Matt-Pitt

      One hit too… Not even bothering to work the count much either. Hopefully they wake up the 3rd time around.

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

    Back-to-back full counts from Cano and Melky? The fuck?

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

      Angelini’s gone two games w/o an error. Anything can happen.

      • Stryker

        ietc.

    • Accent Shallow

      Was hoping for a walk there. Ergh.

  • Jersey

    Christ. What’s with all these groundouts.

    • zs190

      Uh, Palmer is a sinker-baller, groundouts are normal

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

    “Thanks, Newman” has now overtaken “The little girl with the curl” as my most annoying Michael Kay phrase to hear. Mo, I really dislike that guy. I remember a few years ago he used to call Kim Jones, “LiL’ Kim”. What a douche.

      This is an official YES Network blog now, be careful maynnee!!

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

      I cannot think of one redeeming quality Michael Kay has.

      • V

        Agreed.

      • Thomas

        Kay’s best quality: he is so stupid that he doesn’t realize that O’Neil is making fun of him half the time.

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

    Ball was ripped.

  • Accent Shallow

    Robbie!

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

    An athletic play by Cano.

  • Ivan

    Cano almost a terrific DP there.

  • Drew

    Dude, make that call.

  • V

    Robbie = MVP of the Yankees, so far.

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

    Heh, MLB.com’s Yankees beat writer, Bryan Hoch, has really gotten into this Twitter thing.

  • Ivan

    Yes Kay, we fuckin know that figgins look like Randolph.

    • Accent Shallow

      You know, I’d rather digressions along those lines than your typical Kay story.

  • Alex S

    chad johnson and dennis rodman hahaha!

  • Accent Shallow

    Keeps the mask on! I never thought I could feel this way about a backup catcher!

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

    “Flash, pull his mic out”. Heh, I like Pauly.

    Why do they call Flaherty “Flash”?

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

    Dennis Rodman? Really, John Flaherty? You know, they don’t all look alike.

    • Ivan

      Probably thinks Wang and Dice-K look alike as well.

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

        IETC.

        • Ivan

          Sorry but wat does IETC means?

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

            Man, you’ve been gone too long.

            IETC = I enjoyed this comment.
            ICWUDT = I see what you did there.

          • Drew

            I enjoyed that comment.

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

      HAHAHAHAHA.

      IETCVM.

  • Drew

    We need a new broadcast team. By team, I mean Kay.

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

      Get rid of Kay and Flaherty, ‘das it.

  • Accent Shallow

    CC’s been pitching very well, just wish that he’d been more economical. Would love to run him out for innings 7-8-9.

  • Alex S

    we need a new Kay?

    • Drew

      You know what I meant.

  • Ivan

    Wow the yanks just have 1 hit.

  • Accent Shallow

    Oh great, we’re having the “This guy was terrible in AAA! And look what he’s doing to the Yankees! conversation. Shades of 2008. Please make this schlub look like he should, gentlemen.

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

    When A-Rod got interviewed about the high school bs and they showed clips of him hitting, did he look smaller to any of you?

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

    I can’t complain about the offense. I mean, come on, we are sending out just six Major League hitters out there.

    • Ivan

      Still though, 1 hit. Plus, u still got DJ, Cano, and Tex.

  • Drew

    Kay once again sucks.

  • Ivan

    wow Pena didn’t hit it that well and it carried to the warning track.

  • Accent Shallow

    Matthews isn’t a bad complementary player, although I’ll never know how he got that contract.

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

      One above average year and a highlight reel catch.
