    To change the subject, has anyone seen the pirate setting on facebook? its fucking hilarious!

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

      Mine’s been set on pirate for about a week now.

  • Stephen

    At least Lester’s pitch count is somewhat high.

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

    I would like an inning with no runs given up. I think that would be a good thing. no? Do it, do it.

    • Lanny

      We can dream but with this bullpen now having to get 5 innings worth of outs against this lineup, can’t hold the breath.

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        Probably gonna see a lot of Aceves.

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

        actually “The Gangsta” can give them 5 at least. so we got chance to get back in this. chip chip chip away.

    Lanny – please stop acting like a fucking idiot. Because you aren’t.

    • V

      He isn’t?

      Maybe it’s just because I’ve never seen him not be an idiot.

      Lanny – please stop acting like a fucking idiot. Because you aren’t. really fucking annoying

      • pat

        Wtf strikethrough fail? Preposterous.

        • Lanny

          Pop, why do you have to act like a jerk and personally call people out with nonsense? I don’t call you or anyone else names. You can’t have a civil back and forth discussion. Are you 8 yrs old or 9? You’re a real mature guy who obviously can’t handle any type of discussion about the team.

          We should all live in your world of daisies and lollipops. The place where Brian Cashman does everything right!

          And Melky is an all star.

          And Hughes throws 98mph and has his name on a Cy Young.

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

            Are you the guy that asks “Ian Kennedy for Tim Redding?” in the chat every week?

          • Drew

            Yumm, lollipops.
            Finally- Someone listened to me about Melky, I just wish it wasn’t Lanny.

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

            Hmmm, you’re accusing me of things I have never said. Look through my archive, Lanny. Those last 3 sentences you made, I have never made one of those statements. You telling me I can’t have a rational discussion about a game/Yanks? Really, man. Everytime the Yankees pitcher gives up a hit, what do you do? Bitch, bitch, and bitch. It’s all you fucking do. I said stop acting like a fucking idiot, everyone is telling you this. Not just me. I just don’t get how you could be so negative all the time. It is so annoying to see these comments game after game. All your comments are pointless. “Hughes isn’t on Lester’s level”. Really? Really? Noone had a clue that this was true. Jesus man. If I offended you, I apologize. But to tell me I can’t have a rational convo pisses me off.

          • Yankee1010

            Excuse me, when have you had a civil back and forth discussion? You shit on the Yankees you dislike left and right and then largely ignore anybody who responds to you.

            Like 90% of your discussions are one-way-only.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Common Gangsta!

  • A.D.

    Well calling up Aceves looks like a damn fine move today.

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

      Nope. Front office is embarrassing.

      • Mattingly’s Love Child

        Randy Levine has had his moments this spring…but I will never say anything publicly negative about him. He is an evil genius and I do fear him more than bin Laden.

        • Lanny

          Cashman and the FO have done a great job of developing position players and replacing the core from the dynasty right???

          Cano and….I’m stumped. Crickets…

          • Mattingly’s Love Child

            Yeah….because they’ve had all those top draft picks…..oh wait. Because of the Steinbrenner spend and spend philosophy they had how many 1st round picks between 2001-2004?

            The Red Sox had the greatest draft ever in 2005, but most scouts will tell you, THEY GOT LUCKY that everyone developed to their ceiling or close to it.

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

            And the Sox have developed Ellsbury, Pedroia, and Youkilis. That’s it. Bay, Drew, Ortiz, Varitek, and Lowell are all products of other teams.

            While it’s in the past, it still counts: the Yankees have developed at least one sure fire HOF guy (Jeter), one guy who should be an HOFer but won’t be (Posada), and one of the best hitting CFs of the last 15-20 years (Bernie).

            • Lanny

              In the past 6 years what have each team developed. Sox have legit MVP’s at 2b and 1b. They have a future all star in CF. They have a solid SS who’s hurt. And don’t forget they used that deep system to get other players like Beckett or is Hanley Ramirez nothing?

              The Yankees haven’t developed one player on any of those levels. Cano is the same guy who you’re just hoping gives you 6 months of prime concentration. And thats someone you build a team around? While good he’s not on Pedroias or Youks level.

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

      • Lanny

        You’re seriously complaining that he got hit hard and lasted 4 innings because he got squeezed?

        Really??

        hilarious. you’re always good for a laugh, Pop.what doesn’t this team do right in your eyes? I bet you’re even wearing that Ransom jersey.

            No you’re right. I should leave because I don’t think theres a huge conspiracy to squeeze the Yankee pitchers and help the Red Sox win the games

            Talk about biased homers.

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

  • yankees=warriors

    I don’t know what is more frustrating, watching this game or listening to my teacher’s lecture…

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

      What class?

      • yankees=warriors

        Administrative Law, and it’s a 3 hour class!

    • A.D.

      I’m going to with this lecture, shit happens with games, tomorrow comes and you never really need to worry about yesterday. After a bad lecture, you still need to know the material for the test.

      • yankees=warriors

        Good point.
        Ok, can’t “talk” now, break just ended.

  • Nick

    this game has ruined my week, until hughes comes back saturday

    • A.D.

      Eh if Joba deals tomorrow I bet your mood would perk up. Or even if the Yankees win tonight.

      • Nick

        lets hope, but theres just something about seeing Hughes not pitch well.

    • Accent Shallow

      He’s gonna have bad games. This was an odd one, though. A run an inning, but no more.

    • yankees=warriors

      Same feeling here.
      But I don’t think he was THAT bad today. He did get Youkilis out all 3 times!

      • Lanny

        You make it seem like Hughes should be dominating every time out.

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

          You make it seem like this has never happened before and will never happen again.

          Which is wrong, btw.

    • Reggie C.

      If he happened to shank Tim Hogar … would anybody notice….

    Well, the longball is killing my pitching staff today. Vazquez pitches a great game, then gives up 3 2R HRs. Now, Felix decides to give up a gopherball also.

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

        Yep. Yanks win this game.

        Finally, STeve Philips says that Jeter’s range has diminished. Something rational and civil. Lanny might appreciate this.

  • Alex M

    I have had it with these lame crowds at Yankee Stadium. It is quiet as Wimbledon while the fans hang out at the Mohegan Sun Sports Bar. The Yankees screwed up big time with this stadium. I am not some fake Yankee poster either. I am a lifetime loyal fan who was looking forward to the new stadium but has been horribly disappointed.

    • Nick

      have you been there, you might just like it

    • A.D.

      It has never been loud at a Tuesday night game, in May, that was delay over 2 hours due to rain.

      • A.D.

        Damnit it’s only Monday.

        • Alex M

          No I have not been there yet and I hope u guys are right. It looks pathetic right now though especially when you see how Fenway was when we played there last week.

    • pat

      2 and a half hour rain delay bro. Monday night.

    • V

      Because the crowds are always amazing after 2 hour rain delays?

      I love going to games, but I live a 1.5 hour drive away from the city (I work in the city, too), and I’d be getting home at 4 am if I went to this game ;-)

    • Alex

      I agree. I was there for four hours yesterday. There is sooo much good about it, I walked around the whole stadium probably 50 times during the delay, and the sight-lines are amazing. It is convenient and looks incredible! but i still don’t like it. I miss the old one so much.

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

      Whoa. Dude. Is it Monday or Tuesday?

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Sounded pretty loud vs LA. Sorry people didnt wait two hours in the rain for you. Now they know for next time.

    Crap, the Muts won. We gotta turn this around.

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

    • V

      He’s a replacement level POS – y’know, like Nick Green, the guy playing SS for the Sox.

    • pat

      Again, please mention a better UTIL guy who was a feasible option. I’ll wait.

    • Accent Shallow

      He came in on a minor league deal. He’s 4th on the 3B depth chart. You’d prefer Adrian Beltre stashed in AAA?

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

      Lanny, stop.

      Just stop.

      YOU’RE HAVING AN ANEURYSM OVER A GUY WHO WILL HAVE TWENTY PLATE APPEARANCES THIS YEAR, TOPS.

      • Lanny

        You really don’t think there were better UTL options out there?

        Grudz isn’t out there even now? Christ, there are career minor leaguers better than him. Hows Nick Green doing? Berroa. Wow. Go look at B Ref and tell me why someone would even offer him a contract. Stashing decent, solid players for depth in AAA is what good teams do.

        And while he might only get 20 at bats he did already cost us one game in boston with his 3b play.

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

          IT.
          DOES.
          NOT.

          This is the freaking textbook definition of complaining about shit just to complain about shit.

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

            And here’s the thing: I’ll entertain a discussion about whether or not we should have pursued Grudz. Shit, we did it during the spring for weeks and weeks.

            I won’t entertain that discussion with YOU, Lanny.

            Because you’re not interested in an honest discussion of it’s merits, you’re interested in shitting on the Yankee front office and trying to say how everything they do is dumb and stupid.

            You have an unappeasable agenda, so every “discussion” with you is a ridiculous charade. You’re just looking to make Cashman and Girardi look like fools, evidence to the contrary be damned.

        • Accent Shallow

          Grudz is a 40 year old 2B. Not exactly a stellar UTIF option. Nick Green is the white version of Berroa.

    I’m late but I really want some fucking robots calling balls and strikes. No calls for Hughes but everything for Lester. Thanks Damon and Teix to fucking tell that ump his bet on the Sox is in jeoprady.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Looks like I’m not actually late at all.

      • Lanny

        The ump is on the take!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Nice inning we chipped away now were in this game.

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

    Does anyone else crack up when Tex runs?

    • Nick

      i see what u mean

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

        It’s the cheeks.

    • yankeefan91 Arod fan

      lol

    • J

      ever notice when theres a man on first he’s always moving his ass? my girlfriend brought it up and i kept noticing it so now i sorta purposely not look at him lol

      • Stryker

        hahahahahahahaha i noticed this too!!!!!

        it’s like a swaying of his ass that says “look at me i’m making 180 mil!”

      • bizarrojamie

        I love the Tex booty shaking/wiggling. It’s one of the things that has helped me to like him.

        He does it even when nobody is on the base.

        YES loves to show it, and I’m thankful for that :)

  • dre

    look guys Theo is a Genius!!!!!

    he obvioulsy paid off this ump tonight..sheer Genius

    Via Pete Abe:

    UPDATE, 11:18 p.m.: Joe Girardi just got tossed for arguing balls and strikes with Jerry Meals. Tell you what, he’s got a point. Meals squeezed Hughes and Lester has had the Major Deegan Expressway all night.

    What’s Pete Abe’s problem? Hughes and Lester have been getting the same strike zone all night!

    • JobaWockeeZ

      The plate does not change sizes so Idk what PeteAbe is on.

      • pat

        have u been watching the game?

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

        The plate does not call balls and strikes. The Ump does.

    • kunaldo

      are you being serious?

      /sarcasm?

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

        Yes

  • Kelvz

    And all of a sudden, they are gone. (You all know who I’m talking about)

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Because they’re not Yankee fans. Their bandwagoners going to the winning team.

  • A.D.

    damnit Jeter

  • Matt-Pitt

    Jeter, is that serious?

  • V

    Wow, Jeets.

  • Manimal

    I said in my head, if the yankees don’t score three runs in this inning, I’m going to bed.

    Well, fml.

  • steve (different one)

    the front office should be embarrassed by that error

  • steve (different one)

    the front office should be embarrassed by that error

    • JobaWockeeZ

      IPK and Melky for Hanley, Jeter to left!!!

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

    Fucking Jeter. Throw with some conviction.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Come on Jeter we cant afford to have long innings i want the yanks back out there swingin.

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

    OMG. Is Jeter getting a case of the Knoblauchs?

    • Biggity Baruce

      please dont say that

    • Alex

      that’s a shot at Jeter.

    • steve (different one)

      that was a shot at Keith Olberman’s mom!

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

        This is going to sound bad, but it is true and not in a bad way. I was thinking of her as I wrote it. LOL

  • Alex

    remember last year when the Yanks were on a losing streak and it was the bottom of the 10th, Girardi got ejected and then we ended up mounting a rally capped by a Cano walkoff single?

    • giselle

      yea. i remember the postgame interview w/ Cano: “I so excited!”

    • Matt-Pitt

      I do… I was at that game with a Cano jersey on, hah.

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

    Jeter. Seriously? How do you bounce that throw? Even Scott Smalls makes that throw.

    • Stryker

      scott smalls before or after the plastic glove and chewing tobacco?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=15305165&ref=profile Doug

        You’re killing me, Smalls!

  • V

    I don’t want to go to bed now, but I have to get up early. Normally, I’d just stay up and watch the game, and work from home, but I have to go to the office tomorrow :-(.

    • Lanny

      no more fantasy trades??

      • V

        Do you have a point, prick?

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

          Technically all pricks have a point. Otherwise they would be stubs.

  • Drew

    Wow the Boston sucks chant is shameful. It was louder with the Yankee fans in Fenway.

    • Lanny

      doesn’t help when there are 9 people there

  • steve (different one)

    i can’t blame all of Hughes’ struggles on the ump, but this has been some horrible umpirig tonight

    • Accent Shallow

      Agreed. He clearly didn’t have his best stuff, but the ump certainly didn’t help.

  • dre

    why didnt the ump just come with big red sox B?

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

    This is harsh. But it’s a dream scenario(unless they just pick up Hardy as a FA and let Jeter walk, not likely). Jeter and Hardy are both FA’s at the same time. Jeter goes down with injury that year, Yanks trade IPK+(insert name here)+(insert name here), etc for JJ Hardy. Sign him to extension. Tell Jeter he can play LF for 1 year with an option year or he can walk.

    • Manimal

      I don’t see an ultimatum situation like that, the yanks have too much respect for Jeter to just say play here or leave.

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

    Lanny: what did the front office do wrong in that half inning?

    • Lanny

      Do you people really think Cashman walks on water?

      Seriously?

      You really can’t take the criticism? You really think the FO has done an outstanding job the past decade?

      • steve (different one)

        no, it’s more that you are annoying as shit.

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

        It’s a 4-3 ball game so now your gripe is about management? Seriously?

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        No, we think you only post when something goes wrong. You have never once, by anybody’s memory, posted when something good happens. Either you are really depressed or a Red Sox fan trying to start crap.

      • Mattingly’s Love Child

        Lanny, I think you’re the one who can’t take criticism.

        It is no secret the front office has made mistakes over the past decade (if that is the time frame you’d like to use).

        But at the same time, a lot of things that could have worked out, havent. Sometimes baseball is a crapshoot.

        The front office has been making steps over the past couple of years to fix the mistakes of the early 2000s. To ignore that is to be ignorant.

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

        You really think the FO has done an outstanding job the past decade?

        No, I don’t.

        I don’t think they’ve done a piss-poor job, either, though. That’s the way you portray it, which is fucking ridiculous.

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

    Nice range, Swish.

  • pat

    No no no no I was under the impression Swisher has below average range.. STEVE PHILIPS TOLD ME SO!!

    • A.D.

      Nate McClouth, Gold Glover.

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

      I love how guys who work for ESPN can’t or won’t just go to FanGraphs and do some research.

      • A.D.

        They actually had a guy on BBTN last weekend (I think he was from Baseball Prospectus) talk about UZR.

        • A.D.

          Actually might have been range factor.

          The guy didn’t have the best TV presence.

    Well, it looks like Rickie Weeks has finally realized his potential. Of course he does it the year when most fantasy owners gave up on him in the draft.

    • A.D.

      I know I did.

    • V

      Grabbed him off the waiver wire… but left him on the bench today.

  • steve (different one)

    Swisher playing a nice RF, but i thought he had a better arm. he throws lollipops.

  • A.D.

    Nice play by Swish

  • Matt-Pitt

    Alright Ortiz, comeback to life and either pop up or ground into an inning ending DP.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Knowing the ump Ortiz will not swing while 4 fastballs right down the middle gets called balls.

    • Matt-Pitt

      I’ll take the DP babyyyy

      • V

        That’s what she said.

  • Lanny

    I’m shocked Girardi actually did something right.

    Oyes, Berroa!

    Wow. Berroa = good play!

    • Lanny

      maybe you should pick him up for your fantasy team

      • V

        Maybe you should go jump off a bridge. Twice.

        • Bill N.

          or play in oncoming traffic

    Angel Berroa is useful?

    What a play by Angel!!! Maybe you guys will cut him some slack now!

    nicee play by berroaaa wow.

      Did you see the defensive play? Anyone can get Ortiz out but look at that play!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Angel? Good defensive play? We are winning this game.

  • pat

    No no no no LANNY TOLD ME BERROA SUCKS WTF!!!!!???

  • Accent Shallow

    Hey, Berroa does something useful! Color me surprised!

  • Lanny

    Oh no. Now it’s going to be 50 posts saying how great Berroa is and how dumb anyone is for saying he’s a bum. Hold on tight folks

    • Biggity Baruce

      wanker

    • V

      You’re dumb, but not because you said he was a bum.

      • Lanny

        V, you really do seem like a real nice person. I mean calling people names for giving their baseball opinion and acting like a jerk is totally mature and very cool and so big of you. i congratulate you for being 9 yrs old, son.

    • steve (different one)

      no, Berroa sucks. blind squirrel, nut, yada yada

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      I still think he stinks. But for a 2nd or 3rd utility man (behind Ransom and Pena), I’d say that you can’t expect much more.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Berroa is great. It is dumb to say that he is a bum.

      x49

  • Alex

    wow Berroa made a.. good play in the field?

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

    Holy fuck Berroa!

  • V

    So, Lanny, who should have made that play instead? You?

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

    HOLY SHIT ANGEL BERROA MAKES A GOOD PLAY BUT LANNY TOLD ME HE SUCKS?!?!?!??!?!?

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Its cashman’s fault for not getting a better 2nd utility guy!

    • A.D.

      It still doesn’t make him good, or a better option than Pena.

      • Mattingly’s Love Child

        True. He should be the 3rd utility man on the depth chart. Especially with the way Pena was hitting.

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

        Never said he was. But he isn’t a trainwreck either, and he’s fine to pick up a few games while we await ARod’s return.

        There is absolutely nothing wrong with giving Berroa a start here.

        Nothing.

      • Lanny

        wait, the umps actually let him make the double play there???

        u sure???

  • Kelvz

    Why did Cashman traded for this bum Swisher? Management = Massive FAIL

      I nominate a certain man on this blog for gm that has a name that rhymes with PooNanny.

    • Lanny

      He should def get a contract extension for taking another teams salary dump. God forbid for the first time in a decade he actually built a strong deep bench.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Noo0000000!!!! Cashman sucks! We didnt go to teh playoffs last year! He SUCKS! Girardi sucks! Everyone on the Yankees sucks right?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

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

        Again, who would you have gotten to fortify the bench? You know who goes on the bench? Below average to replacement level players. If they weren’t that bad, they’d start somewhere. Once the team gets healthy, the Yankees’ bench looks like 54 times better.

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

        Lanny. Is a bench of Nady, Ransom, Molina, Melky/Gardner not a good bench to you. Jesus man. Great benches =/= championships. Great starting lineups do. Because bench players just aren’t that good but he had Nady on the bench… but you still bash.

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

    I have a feeling Kay could fit right in with the guys from ESPN. Oh wait..

      Kay likes the Yankees. ESPN loves the Red Sox so he can’t announce games. But apparently they let him have his own talkshow!

    every time Michael Kay sees a fly ball be makes me think its gone. he needs to stop
