      Yeah, the league got rid of the curfew a few years back. Now they can play until whatever time they need.

      Yup, ESPN is all geeked over Tacoby Bellsbury stealing home.

    This one will be called by ten.

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

    Oh and I’m watching on NESN: Over/Under: 5.5 times they mention Ellsbury’s steal of home. I’m saying under.

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

    Something I was wondering today, want to see what you guys think.

    Selena Roberts says she has “multiple sources” on the pitch tipping allegation. MLB is investigating the steroid claims, and will have to look into the pitch tipping at some point.

    If one or more of the players comes forward and tells Bud he was tipped off by Alex, and its supported by video evidence in some way, then what? What do you think will happen and what do you think Bud should do?

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

      If they’re true they HAVE to suspend A-Rod. It gets directly at the integrity of the game.

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

        Yeah, that my take. And I can’t see how they let him play again. The only question will be what the Baseball rules are and if they have enough evidence to get past the arbitrator.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Suspend ARod and the player tipped off by Alex. Therefore I doubt they would come forward.

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

        Retired player(s) who hates Alex’s guts.

        You’re not playing along. I didn’t ask IF it will/wont happen. I’m assuming it has happened and asking you to play Bud Selig.

    • A.D.

      Don’t think there is anything he can do, nor do I think he should do something.

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

        Why not?

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

      I’ll start:

      I think Bud will give him a huge ban, and should. Maybe even a indefinite or lifetime ban. The Union will go nuts, and bring it to an arbitrator. But I think Bud would prevail. If he can ban Pete Rose for life for betting on games to win, he can ban Alex for making a mockery of the sport for his own (ultimate) statistical gain. I cant see him being allowed back on the field in the big leagues if that is ever proven to a reasonable degree of certainty.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Quite frankly, considering the groundswell of refutation coming from Texas, from players to coaches, and the fact that Shane Spencer, who said he heard rumors about something of that sort, is one of her “sources,” I think she is full of it.

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

        See my above reply to Mattingly’s Love Child.

        Its a hypothetical.

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

          I agree with the point you made Steve. It would really make me lose my respect for A-Rod and would just officially ruin him I think.

          I would be upset if it was true, I really hope she just made it up.

  • Yankee1010

    This is completely ridiculous. It’s worse now than it was earlier in the night. So, sure, let’s start the game at 9:20. Makes sense.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Bacne?

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

      Agreed. He’s not fat, just a little thicker in the lower half. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

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

        With the trouble he has had in staying healthy, I bet he’s added a training regimen designed to keep him on the field. Bernie needed the same thing, as do many young players.

    alright.

    MLB.tv YES HD feed is 1/2 batter behind … can’t update RAB until after AB’s.

    gar.

    • bizarrojamie

      it gets even farther behind through the game. I’ve been multiple batters behind before when streaming the game. Sucks when you’re chatting with somebody about the game or twitter pops up with updates. But you get used to it.

      I’d rather have a slightly lagged game that I get to watch than no game at all :)

      If you try to gameday and mlb.tv it, you’ll find they get out of sync the same way.

  • Ivan

    Wow that impressive to blow two FB’s by youkilis the way he’s hitting.

  • Matt-Pitt

    How was that not a stike?

    • Yankee1010

      It didn’t catch ALL of the plate. That’s what I’m thinking.

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

    Hughes straight up blew Youk away. Swung through two fastballs right down the pipe.

  • Shane

    JD Dew is terrible

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

    So…where did the first pitch to Nancy miss?

    • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

      Too much plate.

  • Alex

    I’m on gameday and all these fastballs are 94 or 95.

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

      NESN’s gun has him at 92-93.

      Wow. Where did that miss? This umpire is ridiculous.

      • Bryan

        It didnt, the ump is just squeezing him

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Listen, Boston has a good lineup and Phil is 22. I see him throwing 92-94 with good life on all of his pitches, and I am encouraged.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

    You know, I’m thinking Hughes’ pitches may have too much movement right now.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Ok… This blue’s zone is killing me… and Hughes

    • Stryker

      absofuckinglutely.

  • Stryker

    all these balls – result of the rain?

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

      No, results of the umpire being an inconsistent jackass.

    • Yankee1010

      Nope. The umpire being a fucking douchetard. May he get the business end of a trident.

    • Bryan

      To be impartial, if you were looking at this game from another perspective, is it clear that the ump is inconsistent?

  • kSturnz

    is taht why you don’t walk batters?

  • A.D.

    Damn looked like a perfect pitch

  • Matt-Pitt

    WHERE IS THE ZONE?!

  • Alex

    wow.. a ball.. really?

  • pat

    UGH WTF that curve was dirty, too mad it missed a little.

    • Yankee1010

      It didn’t miss.

  • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

    Seriously, where the eff did those pitches miss?

  • Shane

    fuck that….. Rookie/Soph K zone sucks i guess

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    According to Gameday, Phil just got squeezed terribly.

    • Matt-Pitt

      On 3 pitches that at bat.

  • Evan

    Do we get any fucking calls? At least 2 of those balls were strikes.

  • Yankee1010

    He’s got impressive stuff so far. It would help if he got some strikes called. That last pitch was SICK. And a fucking strike. He threw 3 pitches in that at-bat that were strikes but called balls. The umpire knows the game started, right?

  • Raf

    this tight zone better go both ways.

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

      I’m sure it won’t.

      • A.D.

        At least most of this blog won’t think so

        • Mattingly’s Love Child

          Damn right!

  • Eric

    good thing we got Aceves today with this damn ump

  • Tom Zig

    is the ump squeezing Hughes? Gameday had 2 balls that shoulda been strikes

    • A.D.

      There have been some close ones go balls, just as long as it goes both ways.

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

      :nods:

  • A.D.

    Annnd out of it, damn passed ball.

  • Evan

    Don’t worry guys, Lester will get 2.5 inches on each corner to make up for Phil getting squeezed.

  • Albert = Machine

    Watching this on ESPN doesn’t feel right.

  • Jeremy

    Hughes made the most out of what could have been a really shitty inning.

  • Ivan

    Didn’t like he threw that many pitches, but nevertheless kept the damange to a minimun.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

    As long as they call the tight zone for Lester I’m okay with it.

    But I don’t think these umps realize what they’re doing with a tight zone. We’re so not getting any sleep tonight.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Yeah, Yanks-Sox don’t need any help going longer. And they don’t need any motivation to take pitches….

  • kSturnz

    is it just me, or does Bay look alot like Ike from Southpark?

    • Alex

      I can definitely see that. Is Bay Canadian?

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

    When will the MLB get robots to ump games?

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

      Just as soon as we get the games to be played on computer like we really want.

      But seriously, I know the “human error” factor of the umpire may be charming or whatever, but it’s fucking stupid. There needs to be a standardized strikezone that’s more readily enforced.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I hope the ump squeezes Lester just as bad.

  • Evan

    Does Tex have a big game? Slumping is an under statement. He is hitting in Ransom territory.

    • Stryker

      not with that backwards k he won’t.

  • pat

    Wow, cleveland was getting no hit for a while there.

  • Albert = Machine

    These umps must work for the Sox, just like George Mitchell.

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

    Hughes did well to get out of it. The run scored because Molina tried to glove a ball he should have got in front of.

    • A.D.

      Fast runner on 3rd especially.

    • Evan

      Was just going to say they will make that a passed ball.

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

      Should’ve flipped the glove.

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

    That was a fugly swing out of the Cap’n.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    At least I have both Lester and Hughes on my fantasy team. Let’s see Lester get all the calls Hughes will never get.

      Yeah I’m sure it’d be packed in every stadium after a 2+ HR rain delay on a Tuesday.

      • Evan

        Clearly not, plus it’s Monday. But it’s just typical. Even if it was 75 and sunny at 7:05, those seats behind HP would still be 1/2 vacant.

    • Stryker

      hahaha i semi enjoyed this comment.

  • Dave

    Ah, so this is what it was like to be a sox fan from 1990s-2003

    • Accent Shallow

      Don’t be a drama queen.

    • Whitey14

      Yes, although you guys have so much recent history to be proud of and the history we had to be proud of was fucking ancient at best…

      • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

        Good to see you again Whitey. I hate your team, not you.

      • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

        This is why I don’t mind Whitey.

  • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

    Fuck you Red Sox. Fuck You.

  • Ivan

    Come on Hughes

  • Accent Shallow

    No need to dick around with Varitek. He has a slider-speed bat these days.

  • Evan

    Being down 2 runs might just do us in tonight. The way we are swinging the bat, or lack there of, thus far we are finished. Unless Cano, Matsui and Swisher hit 5 home runs each, we are finished.

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

      LOL.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Seriously? “The way we are swinging the bat?” It is one inning.

      • Ivan

        Besides we have been hitting the ball well this season.

      • Evan

        I know, but those 3 at-bats instilled very little confidence.

  • TC

    This ESPN broadcast is brutal

  • Evan

    Red Sox, Rays and Blue Jays in the next week and a half. Maybe we can win 3 of those games…

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

      Take that shit to LoHud.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      OK, its time for you to leave. The Yankees won 4 out of their last 5. 1.5 bad innings and you are throwing in the towel on the next week and a half. Go away.

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

        Preach, brother.

        (Scarface still sucks)

  • Ivan

    It’s early.

  • A.D.

    Wait, not every ball goes out at the new stadium??

  • Ivan

    Wow that ball travel.

  • Alex

    It looks like the Sox are rite on the curve.. like they know its coming.

  • Ivan

    Please don’t walk Ellsbury.

  • Albert = Machine

    FUCK KERRY WOOD!

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

      Killing me in fantasy.

      • Albert = Machine

        not only that. he blew a 2-run lead to the jays

    • Reggie C.

      who are the Indians playing tonight??

      why the emotion?

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

    Orsillo just said ’07 was Hughes’ first year in the Yankees’ system.

    • Ivan

      To many pitches hughes.

  • DCR

    I guess I will be the first one to say it:

    I wish this was Johan.

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

      Man. Why do you trolls fans wait around 3 hours for the game to start anyways?

  • Matt-Pitt

    Gotta throw strikes, Hughes. Least challenge em’.

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

    “He was running at will, and will was on the next base.”

    Classic.

    • Ivan

      ha ha ha ha hillarious.

    • Bryan

      #152 why YES is better than ESPN.

  • Bryan

    This game went south fast

    • Matt-Pitt

      Didn’t know teams can’t comeback from down 2-0…

    • Ivan

      It’s the second inning.

    • A.D.

      actually just fan morale on this blog did.

  • Nick

    anyone know his pitch count

    • Matt-Pitt

      49

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

    Holy crap guys, it’s 2-0 in the second inning.

    Like we haven’t come back from worse? Or were you guys not around on Friday?

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

      But its the red soxxx1!!! No chance, oeesss nooes

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Ok, so maybe it isn’t over yet…. ;)

  • pat

    Phil went 0-2 right away on a bunch of those fools, gotta learn how to put em away early.

  • Accent Shallow

    Dear Phil,

    Outs are good, runs are bad. Lock the state.

  • Evan

    I effing hate Lowell, he’s like 60. Always seems to have a big hit against us. If he didn’t play at Fenway and have a massive wall 200 feet away he would suck, kind of like Matt Holliday.

    • KW

      Nah, the dude is pretty good. He does look 60, but he’s got a legit bat. Wish we could do that trade over :P

      • Evan

        Seems like the only time we see him play, when the Yankees are in Fenway, he hits at least 1 double off the monster which would be a routine out in any other park. Get one of those a week and that is the difference between hitting .250 and .300. He’s not as good as his numbers show, IMO.

    • A.D.

      He was a much better hitter away in ’06 & ’08, so its really not Fenway

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

    My fucking g-d can we get like a ban on this smoking commercial or something?

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

      Its a possibility!

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

        I liked the guy with the voice box. The singing one he did was supposed to be horrifying, but it ended up hilarious.

        I wish I had one of those things. That would be loads of fun at parties.

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

          I’m sorry, but that’s fucked up. Be careful what you wish for.

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

            I don’t want to NEED one, just have one of those gadgets around to goof off with.

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

              I wonder what would happen if you inhaled the helium from a balloon and used that voice box thing.

    • Albert = Machine

      every time i’m eating, that crap comes on

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

      i don’t mind. reminds me why i quite smoking.

  • Nick

    does he have a pitch limit for the night, im guessing 110?

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    If this team doesn’t win 75% of their games the rest of the year I’m done as a fan!

  • Evan

    C’mon swish!

  • Matt-Pitt

    I love Swish’s at bats

    • Matt-Pitt

      Great at bat, as usual.

  • Reggie C.

    Thank You Swisher. Dont make it easy for Lester. … unlike Teix.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

    I <3 Nick Swisher

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

    Oh man. A home run can tie it? I thought this game was ovaaa!

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

    That’s how Nick Swisher rolls.

  • pat

    Booya, swisher says fuck your perfect game jon lester.

  • Evan

    ALLLLL RIIIIIGHT! WAY TO GO SWISHER!

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Nick took pity on him and just accepted a walk

  • Accent Shallow

    Sneaky, Robbie, very sneaky.

  • Ivan

    Don’t do dat Cano.

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

    Zack Greinke has 9 K’s through 7 but has only thrown 79 pitches. This man belongs in the league that Mariano Rivera and Albert Pujols plays in.

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

      That’s insane.

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

    27 3-2 counts in 25 games? Holy shit.

    • Ivan

      Who’s that?

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

        Swish.

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

          Who else could it be? :)

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

          Does Betemit even have a 3-2 count in his career?

  • Evan

    Hey, Bobby Baccala in the stands.

  • A.D.

    Damn thought that was through.

  • Ivan

    Fuck Green.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Where the hell was that when he was our utility guy?!

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Too bad it’s not Lugo there.

  • Evan

    Crap, that was a nice little grab.

  • kSturnz

    you know cano would have turned that dp

  • pat

    Geez, crosby and ovechkin both had hat tricks tonight.

    • Albert = Machine

      Damn.

    Jump ship now.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      I’m going to go start the car in the garage…

      • Mattingly’s Love Child

        Just in case!

  • Matt-Pitt

    Should’ve been back to back singles. Cano seems ot be getting robbed lately. Nice pick up single by Posada. Need to get that run in now.

  • Drew

    Jorge is the man.

  • Accent Shallow

    Please continue hitting Lester. I have such good memories of him as a punching bag.

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

    Hey, just got here.

    Read through the game threads so far.

    I feel like Bluto from Animal House listening to some of you Yankee fans. You people disgust me.

    “What the fuck happened to the Yankee fan I used to know?
    Where’s the spirit? Where’s the guts, HUH?

    This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you’re gonna let it be the worst.

    “Ooh, we’re afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble.”

    Well just KISS MY ASS from now on! NOT ME! I’m not gonna take this.
    Lester, he’s a DEAD man!
    Pedroia, DEAD!

    YOUKILIS…

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

    Easy there, Melky.

  • Ivan

    Lets go Melky.

  • dre

    can some Girardi lover please justify playing Berrora over a hot Pena? and playing Molina over a Hot Matsui?

    • Alex

      Tough lefty against Matsui and probably doesn’t want to ruin his knees in the wet field.

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

      Gladly.

      IT’S ONE FREAKING GAME. Calm down.

  • Alex

    STEAL HOME CANO!!

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

    Steal home, Cano! STEAL HOME!!!

    • Alex

      i win

  • Buddy

    This lineup is short. Melky 7th? Ugh. I know he’s swingin’ a hot bat, but I want him swingin’ a hot bat out of the 9 hole.

    • Buddy

      Molina and Beroa combo following him is wonderful too.

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      Did you hear that A-Rod and Nady are both hurt?

  • Ivan

    Iight don’t swing at the high FB.

  • A.D.

    Goddamn Evil Melky.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime

    Ayayay Melky, that was not cool.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Come on Melky, you can’t go down looking at anything close like that.

  • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

    Very iffy strike!

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

    Too close too take Melk.

  • dre

    oh wait thats right Molina has 1 good game agaisnt lester, so hes a lester killer…

  • Ivan

    Stills K’s great and that FB was rite there.

  • Albert = Machine

    Fuck, Jose is up.

  • pat

    It’s ok Jonathon, when your arm falls off right around the all-star break we’ll be laughing last.

  • Yankee1010

    That was a strike, Melky. Just because Hughes wouldn’t get it, doesn’t mean that Lester won’t.

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

    Don Orsillo being wrong Pt. 2: Apparently Jose Molina was signed just last year to be the backup catcher.

  • Jake H

    I want to know where that strike 3 on melky was cause Hughes threw that same pitch and it was a ball.

  • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

    El queso está viejo y pútrido. ¿Dónde está el sanitario?”

  • Ivan

    Hit a homer Molina.

  • Reggie C.

    Of course we let Lester off the hook.

  • Albert = Machine

    Damn, homie!

  • Evan

    They look like they have never seen a curve ball.

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

    I wish Phil Hughes had the same umpire behind the plate that Jon Lester has.

  • A.D.

    What was Molina looking for?

  • Matt-Pitt

    Wow, c’mon guys. You can’t really go down looking, at least take the bat off the shoulders.

  • Albert = Machine

    What’s the record for spillover threads?
