    why not wait til berroa hits and then pinch run pena if matsui reaches??

    is jorge hurt or something? hes a better hitter than berroa… not sure i understand

    • A.D.

      He was holding his leg, presumably re-aggravated the hamstring.

    • dre

      who the heck do the redsox have for catching depth? their starting catcher hits like a back up..

  • Drew

    GOdzilla time bitches

  • Devin

    come on matsui lets do this

  • Alex

    BIG swing

  • Accent Shallow

    This team is in a lot of trouble if Posada’s injury is remotely serious.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Well A-Rod’s coming back soon.

      • Accent Shallow

        Clearly, but you saw what happened last year with Posada out. Molina was a black hole, and there’s not much out there.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Cano is much better, we have Teix in place of Giambino and Matsui is here. Plus Melky is doing better but it’s still a SSS.

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

        Even though they’re in a better position than last year to deal w/it (A-Rod coming back, Tex on the team), I think an injury to Posada would be incredibly costly.

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

      True.

    come on matsuiiiiiiii a homerun would be perfect but a double would do.

    come on melkyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

  • Drew

    Pap wants nothing to do with Melky. He knows what time it is.

  • Accent Shallow

    How long can Papelbon be successful with just a fastball? Argh.

    • A.D.

      Well throwing 95 + with movement

      • Accent Shallow

        He has a great fastball, I get it, but it’s just a fastball. Sooner or later it’s gonna get hit, no? Seems he gets all his Ks with fastball upstairs.

        Per Fangraphs, he throws the fastball ~80% of the time, and the other 20% is split evenly between splitters and sliders.

        Again, I know his fastball is great, but major league hitters can hit a fastball if they know it’s coming, which they should with Papelbon.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      He also has a pretty mean splitter too. Just doesn’t need to use it too often.

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

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

        He was satirizing Lanny.

        It’s moot, Miranda wouldn’t have helped because Molina is our only catcher. He had to hit.

  • pat

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

    Pen needs to go 1-2-3 here. Give the offense a chance.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Alright, got another back. Just need someone to get on base next inning and they got the hot Teix coming up. Just gotta hold em’ here and they can get to Paps.

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

    Gotta pinch hit Pena for Berroa to lead off the ninth. They have to make sure Tex gets another at-bat, which sounds odd considering how he was hitting coming into the game tonight.

  • dre

    its cause matsui is a lefty so he would have more trouble against lester than molina would…wait..Girardi must be on crack if he thinks that…

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

      If he pinch hit Matsui for Molina, they would’ve lost the DH.

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

      Matsui, Damon, and Posada will all get days off during the season.

      They’re old. We can’t forget that.

        Not only that, Aceves is fresh. Why not keep running him out there?

        What do we have to lose at this point? Why burn the pen needlessly?

        • Drew

          It’s not “burning” the pen needlessly, it’s not a blowout.

      • Drew

        He’s still making calls from the clubhouse.

            Ha word. I dunno, I kind of figure the manager still makes the calls from the clubhouse/hallway.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

  • MattG

    assume 6-4 bottom of the ninth, you want Berroa, Gardner or Pena? I’ll take Pena.

    • Alex

      I like Gardner, can’t justify it much tho.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Part of me wants Gardner since he hit off Papelbon for a walkoff hit but either him or Pena.

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

      Peña.

      But me wanting someone like that is the kiss of death.

    • A.D.

      I don’t want Berroa, but realistically they may all be a wash.

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

        Agreed.

        I’d let Berroa take a chance. He’s got as good a shot as any of them of getting on base.

  • pat

      lol you’re funny too

  • Matt-Pitt

    Leadoff walk against the 2 guys who have killed them tonight… Not a smart move. C’mon, they HAVE to get them here to have a chance in the 9th.

  • Accent Shallow

    Pessimism time: how many more starts like this does Hughes get before he’s bumped from the rotation for Aceves?

    Personally, I think he’s ready to be in the majors and won’t be going back to the minors unless Wang gets right, but I could be mistaken. Or the Yankees could get impatient.

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

      You’re kidding, right?

      • Accent Shallow

        Should he be bumped from the rotation for Aceves? I don’t think so, unless he has 4-5 starts like this in a row.

        Tonight was odd: he pitched poorly, but was also getting squeezed. He did manage to get out of sticky situations in every inning, which is a plus, I suppose.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Ehh it was against the Sox and it wasn’t exactly a blowout. He wasn’t consistent this time but a small part of that is from being squeezed. I’ll give him a few more starts until Wang is ready and ship him down to A.AA.

    • A.D.

      I would imagine Hughes would really have to struggle, pretty badly.

  • MattG

    If he grew some dreadlocks, he would pass for manny.

  • Tim

    Molina having to face pap smear is one more condemning example of bad lineups by Girardi and a terrible bench by Cashman.

    • pat

      WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!!!!!!!!!

      WE SHOULD HAVE HAD THREE CATCHERS ON THE ROSTER!!!!!!!!!!

    • Accent Shallow

      Listen, since Posada has to DH, the only way they’ll PH for Molina would be in possible walk-off situations, since there’s no third catcher on the bench. Are you suggesting they should be carrying a third catcher?

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

      You and me both.

      Question: Do I stay up for the postgame to hear what’s up with Posada?

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

    Holy fuck Ramirez it’s a two run game.

    Any reliever who comes in and walks the first guy on 4 pitches should be immediately pulled and forced to run a lap around the stadium.

      I can support this philosophy of bullpen management, although I’m not sure if it’d be effective over the course of a season.

    Could Aceves/Miranda become the new IPK/Melky?

    • Drew

      Trade bait? why not, I see Miranda as a good young bat.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      XD. Aceves and Miranda has to disappoint many people by starting strong and then going downhill. Then they’ll be the new IPK/Melky.

    • A.D.

      Could become a pool of Aceves, Miranda, IPK, Melk, and Pena. Pick any 2 or 3 for “big” trades.

        Aceves+Miranda for Hanley Ramirez and IPK+Melk+Pena for Johan Santana?

        Excerpts:

        – Manny frequently tipped pitches to the other team’s batters from the outfield. All of the pitches he indicated were wrong.

        – He always dipped 215% at Hooters.

      Did you know Mark Teixeira hit two homers and Johnny Damon hit one, too? I’m not trying to be a dick, I’m just asking. Did you not see those parts of the game? Have you ever said a positive thing on this board? You’re even worse than that Scott guy.

    Oy. Coke. they’re called strikes.

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

      Doesn’t matter how you get the outs when you pitch as long as you get them.

      Two runs. Three outs. We do this. We win tonight. BTW, if they make it 6-5 and then don’t come all the way back I may have to give up on watching baseball.

    coke is nice… always gets lefties to get weak popups… the swings look good from opposing batters but they end up always routine flyouts. maybe hides the ball well? late movement? anyone have an idea? his fastball isn’t that fast for good swings to get easy popouts like that.

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

    Battling back from down 3-0 to get the count full and get Ellsbury to hit a harmless pop-up. Nicely done, Coke.
