    ughh. Girardi why no Mo?

  • dkidd

    8th inning was just a warm-up

    tex’s actual “signature moment” coming up

  • pat

    Whateva, just sets up Tex to be the hero again.

    • Accent Shallow

      Despite Tex putting the Yankees back in the game, you know he’ll get booed if he makes an out.

      • tim randle

        what has he done for me late-ly???

  • DP

    Aye carumba.

  • Accent Shallow

    On the plus side, at least it’s Jeter/Damon/Tex coming up.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    And the doubters come back. Really go away.

    • DP

      Haha does quoting Bart Simpson make me a doubter?

  • Jose

    I knew this was going to happen…

  • Spaceman.Spiff

    Walkoff homerun by Robbie Cano. You heard it here first.

  • Ivan

    Im not mad at coke, Im mad that in the bot of the 9th, yanks had no legit PH for Molina or Pena.

    • daneptizl

      Yeah… Duncan woulda gotten that bitch done.

    • V

      Except for the fact that PENA WAS SAFE, I understand.

  • dkidd

    we can hit percival

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

    Lets go! Please.

  • V

    Percival’s on two of my fantasy teams.

    Please kick his ass.

  • Drew

    Okay, this is far from over, C’mon Jetes.
    BTW, can a reliever mentally prepare for extra innings?

  • Pete

    Who’s left for the Rays after Percival?

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

      I think Lance Cormier.

      • tim randle

        and nick swisher.

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

    At least one run is possible off of Percival.

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

    Jeter, please get on.

  • Matt-Pitt

    I understand Jeter’s approach but it would be nice if he can just turn on one for a double in the left center gap or down the line. Just seems to be really late on everything.

    • Pete

      yes, late indeed.

  • Accent Shallow

    Michael Kay shutting the door on the “Price to the bullpen” non-debate.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Funny how our fans go ballistic over Joba to the pen. If he never pitched the 8th we’d never be hearing any B-Jobbers.

      • Jose

        It isn’t the same. Joba has proven he is a gamer for the 8th inning. That is all he can handle, he can’t be a starter.

        • Spaceman.Spiff

          Wow, you are everything I hate in a Yankee fan.

        • pat

          Youre not even that good of a troll, I’ve seen way better than you, you’re waaay too obvious.

          • Jose

            Not trolling. I’m just worried about injury for Joba. I don’t want him to go down the Kerry Wood starter path. I want him to be where he has proven himself.

            • pat

              You have no clue what you are talking about if you’re bringing up Kerry Wood. NONE.

    • Drew

      It is comical.

  • V

    Wow. Pena and Molina were way better than Jeter today.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Come on Damon, get on base man.

  • Ivan

    Lets go Yankees.

  • Pete

    Now get ready for the ‘Try to Jack it Out’ show starring Damon and Tex. :P

  • Accent Shallow

    Derek,

    Hit more line drives, please.

  • kingshaffy

    this sucks

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Funny how you comment when we’re losing again but when we’re hitting you say nothing. I’m not a Yankee fan? Pshh.

  • Jose

    Too bad. We are gonna be under .500 for the first time in a while.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Go back to the Rays blog you were on when it was tie game. If we win I want to show this comment to you, you pathetic excuse for a bandwagoner.

  • C.Panella

    Relax this team has shown 0 heart all year but one game against the angels this game is over u heard it HERE first…This is most frustrating team ive ever seen

    • Ivan

      Okay…………..

    • V

      I heard it HERE first? So you’re the first d-bag I’ve had the pleasure of reading?

      • C.Panella

        D bag huh….Ur a tuff guy thru a comp right…fucking nerd get a life

        • Spaceman.Spiff

          Lol, UR a tuff guy too. I won’t call you a fuckin’ nerd though.

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    • Spaceman.Spiff

      Moar HEART! And I did not here it here first.

      • C.Panella

        Like i SAID 0 FUCKING heart this team find all the ways to blow games is great

        • Spaceman.Spiff

          Yes. Heart would’ve really saved us. Please go home, heart isn’t the reason they’re not performing, it’s poor hitting.

        • V

          Lay off the coke, d00d.

    God damn that wouldve been a triple.

    • Pete

      would you settle for that? :)

  • Pete

    I feel like I’m watching a game from 1966 the way the stands look behind the bases. Is Horace Clarke on deck?

    I hate the rubber warning track.

    I like Johnny Damon.

  • V

    WHY do warning tracks have to be rubberized?

  • BigBlueAL

    Alright at least a Sac Fly will do.

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

    Just need a fly ball Tex.

  • Ivan

    Iight Tex, LETS GO!!!

  • tim randle

    YES!!!

  • cjc

    its only fair

  • V

    Ok, I’ll take the WP.

  • ARX

    Well, he’s at third now. But wtf is the field made of? Rubber?

  • MattG

    See that? You can’t score on that WP. It all evens out!

  • pat

    Hey, Michael we’re playing the Rays dickhead.

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

    Tex, I know you haven’t had teh powerz lately…but one of those warning track jobs would be nice. A homer would be awesome, too.

  • crapmaster general

    all these losses are difficult to say the least, but I am trying to keep in mind that currently toronto is playing so well thanks to mediocre players like marco scutaro. seriously.

    this team (when healthy) is built for the long haul, so stick with it.

    • Pete

      Long haul?

      With all our injuries, how can you say that with a straight face?

      • crapmaster general

        so would you rather have a 100% healthy marco scutaro than a-rod coming back soon?

        I can say with a straight face that I believe in this team right now way more than I think toronto is for real.

          No he doesnt you fucking idiot.

  • Andrew

    Is it safe to say the culture of losing is now firmly in place here? We’re the Red Sox circa 1918-2003… it really is heartbreaking. Like Jim Rome said today – the Red Sox weren’t able to change their culture of losing overnight, and neither will we. We’re going to have to build from the ground up. And no, this is not a knee jerk reaction to the loss tonight. This is a cumulative analysis based on 5 years of worthless baseball.

    • MattG

      “Like Rome said?” Is he still alive?

    • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

      I stopped reading where it said Like Jim Rome said.

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

      Culture of losing? Are you kidding me? The only reason anything like that would exist is because of your last sentence. The last five years of baseball have not been “worthless” for the Yankees. That is absolutely ridiculous. The only reason it feels like a “culture of losing” is because fans, myself included at times, always say “WORLD SERIES OR NOTHING!” It’s a stupid way of thinking.

      • Andrew

        World Series or nothing? Who said anything about that? Winning a playoff series would be nice, though. And yes, a culture of losing. It’s pretty evident, guys… take off the blinders. It sucks.

        • MattG

          “culture of losing” is what you decry after the fact, when you are too lazy to look for real answers.

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

          When was the last time the Yankees had a record below .500? 1992. 1989-1992, if you want to call that a culture of losing, sure. What about this recent Yankee team, the last five years, makes it a “culture of losing”? What is so “evident” about it?

    • V

      Ok, they have a culture of losing. They’re going to finish 80-82. There, I spoiled the season for you. Now you can find something else to do with your time.

      You’re welcome.

      • Andrew

        Your posts are worthless.

The Yankees did start over in a sense by getting good starters this offseason and younger players rather than over-the-hill players. Shut your keyboard up, please.

          Yes, I say taht with all due respect.

  • MattG

    Coke didn’t make a horrible pitch. Burnett was good. And the bottom of the Yankee order is horrific. One smidge of luck, and this is a win.

    Come back off the ledge. Sooner or later, CC, AJ, Andy, Joba and Phil will each put two starts back to back, and that’s a 10 game winning streak.

  • Spaceman.Spiff

    If this place ever gets a forums with registered posters, I pray that we have the option to block users because guys like C.Panella and Jose make me want to /wrists.

    • Jose

      Can’t we all just get along?

  • Bob Michaels

    Girardi is guilty of over-managing, too many pitching changes, need another hitter on the bench.

  • BigBlueAL

    OK Im calm now. Seriously though not complaining or anything, but why the fuck could Mo not pitch the 10th???? Also again when the hell will they call-up a bat and demote the 13th pitcher whoever that may be, and right now there are a boatload of pitchers who could be called the 13th on the staff.

    Its not that Miranda or even Shelley Duncan is a great hitter, but at the least shit put some thought into the other dugout that a PH for Molina and whoever plays 3b til ARod is back is available. Right now this bottom of the lineup is a joke, especially when pitchers start pitching around Melky to get to the next 2 hitters.

  • ShawnT

    Damn thiss loss is almost as bad as last night
    This team has no clutch ability
    Really makes u miss guys like Bernie…

        Fun fact for us, not so much for ShawnT

  • Thomas A. Anderson

    And the code red button has been pushed in game 27 of the 09 season.

    Gotta love it.

  • Bonos

    You see the problem with bringing up Miranda is he doesn’t hit lefties at all. So what are the options? And by the way, Coke’s pitch was low and away. Pena just hit a good pitch. Sometimes you get the bear… Right in the middle of a rally, the rain came. Chit happens.

    • MattG

      So bring up Miranda and Shelley, and actually use Rivera. For chrissakes, use your best players!

    • BigBlueAL

      Yeah but Balfour was brought in to face Molina. Once he was brought in Miranda couldve pinch-hit and Balfour wouldve been forced to face him since a new pitcher must face at least 1 batter. Would Miranda have gotten a hit??? Probably not, but he has a 50X better chance than Molina facing a tough RHP.

  • Drew

    That pitch to Teix was up over the middle at the belt. Are you kidding me Teix?

    • Nady Nation

      Is it that hard to grasp that he got under it and popped it up? He didn’t get the job done, we get it. The game also would not have even gone to extras if it weren’t for him. That’s baseball.

      • Drew

        Yeah your right. I should jump up and down in jubilation. Give me a break dude. I don’t make you read my comments. I saw the replay on the post-game and said that. Get over it.

        • Drew

          you’re

        • Nady Nation

          When did I say you should jump up in jubilation? All I was saying was shit happens. Sounds like you’re the one that needs to “get over it.”

          • Drew

            The pitch was right over the middle. Had I noticed right after it happened, I would have said it then. I didn’t, I saw it on the post game so I decided to say something. Next time I post, I’ll ponder, “Would Nady Nation approve of this?” Would that make you happy?

              And I decided to comment on the comment that you made. Didn’t realize everything that you say must be agreed with. Calm down.

              • Drew

                I AM CALM!! Ha jk. Aight man it’s all good. When I posted that I was still pissed from the outcome..

                • Nady Nation

                  My bad too man. No doubt this shit is frustrating. Just gotta come out and get ’em tomorrow.

              You two just need to chill, lol. It’s no big deal fellas, just a tough game.

              • Drew

                lol word.. So frustrating this game was..

  • manimal

    Under normal circumstances, Arod is at bat and Bruney pitches the 10th.

  • mtrico

    This team is just so frustrating right now, I don’t know what to think anymore. I’m seeing a lot of the same stuff as last year, which is not good.

      You know, considering all the shit that went down last year, I’d say 89 wins is pretty good. IPK and Phranchise were awful in the beginning of the year, Rasner and Snacks Pontoon pitched THIRTY games for the team, Rodriguez, Posada, and Jeter all missed time with an injury, AND Wang/Joba got hurt while they were playing well.

        Actually I have a pic I got from ur site as my wallpaper. Its a shot of the stadium during one of the games vs the Cubs. Looks real nice.

    • http://bigbluepinstripes.blogspot.com/ LB

      Wow! That is chock full of awesome! Me like

  • Thomas A. Anderson

    Oh yeah, great to see that the team has come together and played like a real, cohesive unit without that team cancer, A-Rod.

    Oops.

  • Matt-Pitt

    To me, this game really falls on the offense. You can second guess the Coke move all you want, but it wasn’t a bad pitch, more like a good piece of hitting by Pena. With the tying run standing on 3rd and 1 out, you HAVE to drive in that run anyway you can. You can’t pop up shallowly on a 2-0 count as our number 3 hitter, you know what’s coming right there. We also need a deeper bench but Girardi doesn’t make those moves. The man is playing the cards he is dealt, no other choices. This loss is heart breaking, but whatever. Just gotta move on and go on a nice winning streak starting tomorrow. We get A-Rod back soon, our starting pitching has looked better. Things will come around.

  • Drew

    Girardi on YES

    • BigBlueAL

      Shit didnt u just finish a 10 page paper last week????

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

        20 page paper.

        • BigBlueAL

          WOW. Good luck with ur current paper.

    • Thomas A. Anderson

      Nothing sucks more than watching your team lose and then still having to do work you’ve been procrastinating on all week.

      Oh yeah, I am in no rush to go to grad school.

  • Bonos

    This bring out Mo for the tenth, think a bit. It’s cold and miserable. He threw 18 pitches and he’s 38 years old. He hadn’t pitched in a while. It’s a long season. You’ve got three starters out, not counting Bruney. Things are still not too shabby. Yes, they should have hit Sonnenstine, but this team is so uptight you can see the sawdust sifting from the grips. The atmosphere of New York.

    • BigBlueAL

      The atmosphere of a Girardi managed team.

  • BklynJT

    Too bad there isn’t a 0 choice in the fan confidence polls.

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

      Ifyou vote 0, i pity you.

      • BigBlueAL

        I honestly have voted 6 the last couple of weeks. Before that I was at 8. Next week since Arod should be back as long as they dont lose out this week Ill be back at 7.

        I think thats pretty fair!!!

      • BklynJT

        Thanks for your pity. It is greatly appreciated.

  • Drew

    Please have mercy on me with the post-game wrap up.

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

      FUCK YOU DREW. Go listen to your be-damned Lil Wayne and get the fuck out!

      • Drew

        haha ietc..

  • Bonos

    You know this Girardi bashing is so much bull crap. His team won 89 games last year while the pitching fell apart. What, one of the top defensive catchers in the Majors is stupid, doesn’t know pitching? Where did this BP come from? All developed by Girardi. Where were Bruney and Coke last year. Some over the top is understandable but enough already.

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

    Just a real, real, tough loss all around. Alot of frustration expressed, you could cut the tension in here with a knife!!!!! The be-damned trolls though, man it’s annoying.

    “REBUILD!!!!!!!”

    Like, seriously? Grow up you people. Whether you be 15 or 40. Some of you who are in their high 20’s, low 30’s saying this shit. I can’t believe it. Hard to believe. If some of you are within that age span. That’s right, you just got called out son! Shit makes me sick with some of these comments I see. But I got love for all those regulars! Except for that ass Nady Nation. Always calling out my Boys in Dallas.
    ;)

    Mike Pop OUT!

  • Drew

    I know these guys “have to” say the right thing on post-game interviews, but it’s days like these I wish JoPo was there. I can always look for him to be as pissed as I am. Then again, he’s always pissed so I guess he’s not a good barometer.

    • Tom Zig

      I would like Girardi to just curse and call individuals out.

  • The IRI

    I’m sad in the dangly parts :(

  • Bonos

    One more thing and then I will shut it down. Albaladejo, throws a mid nineties sinker. Do you know how rare that is and how valuable? He’s being developed , Joe is building up his confidence. After the All Star break he should be in full stride. Give this team a chance, there’s a lot of baseball left.

  • Drew

    Manny is ridiculous. This MLB network thing is actually pretty sick. I didn’t think I’d watch nearly as much as I do, but with ESPN’s sucktitude I really have no other choice.

    • dkidd

      it’s fun listening to vin scully

      lots of references to obscure players from the 70’s and 80’s

  • Axl

    It doesn’t matter who we get on our team. Over the past 5 years we’ve had several subtractions and additions and nothing has really changed…we’ve basically just progressively gotten worse if anything. The only weird thing is I don’t know how spending nearly 300 million on starting pitching in the off season results in doing WORSE than our starting staff last year…yes it’s only May…but we’re REAL bad right now. The pitching, the hitting, everything. I don’t care if we’re 2nd, 4th, 6th in runs scored. That’s not the point. Nobody hits when it counts. We’ll score in one inning and then never again. And that’s been happening for quite some time now…not just this year. These new players come in and fit right in…like they’ve been here and know exactly what to do. Swisher stepped up and it was almost as though somebody grabbed him by the shoulder and said “whoa buddy, slow down a little bit…don’t you understand what we’re trying to do here?? take it easy…”

    It’s just weird, strange…and I can’t explain it. But it has to end. Maybe it really is that management is so bad…nobody is happy and everybody has a big dark cloud hanging over their heads at all times…that and the fact that every reporter in the state is salivating…waiting for them to make one small wrong move…so they can write another book.

  • Drew

    Looks like Scotty Proctor will miss the whole season. Boy, Joey T did a number on his arm.
