    I’ve been watching gameday all year this year. I’m telling you Mariano’s velocity is way done, sometimes 4 or 5 mph done. When right he is usually at 93 mph consistently and can hit 95. This year, he never really goes above 91. He’s been consistently at 90, sometimes at 88 or 89. Even Buster Olney said he spoke to a scout who said Mariano’s cutter is simply not cutting. On Baseball Tonight, they said Mariano looked like he had some sort of injury as he was grimacing after a pitch. Who knows?

        Is this what the moral highground looks like?

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

      Stop rooting for the Yankees. Seriously, it insults anyone with half a fucking brain that roots for this team. Just stop. If you hate the team so much and can only say things during the negative moments, you probably don’t like the team. Stop rooting for them. Go find another team to root for. Please. Pretty please. With fucking sugar and a cherry on top.

    can the river ave blues guys do some research on mariano rivera’s performances in tie games?

    thinking back to the last three years, i swear i remember them being awful.

    as soon as i saw mo coming out, i knew the game was over. i was close to actually turning it off, cause i didn’t want to see it.

    now, there has to be some history to support that inkling.

          Yeah there were a few scattered ones.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      His numbers are worse in those situations. They are still better than 99% of relievers in baseball.

  • pc69

    Yankees sometimes hold on to players too long. Mo will be fine but he is not longer the automatic closer he use to be. But I am still miffed at how much money they spend and have zero options past the starters. This is what is killing us.

    • Tony

      They have 4 would-be bench players starting right now.

      Swisher, Molina/Cervelli, Melky, Pena were all supposed to be on the bench. Who the **** pays MLB-money to the four other “Yankee-caliber” AAA/A players you pine for??

      • KW

        I dunno, look at how the Rays built their system of reserves. It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out. Look at the depth they have, even discounting the fact that they have had a lot of high draft picks.

      • pc69

        No, no , I understand who is playing and who should be on the bench, but my comments are more about prior years. This year is a culmination of bad signings in previous years and panic trade moves that netted nothing in end results.

        Posada should not have been signed for 4 years.

        Mo should not have had 3 years.

        Reason, when they resign or trade for players like that, they do not have a replacement ready. Now it is hurting them. No catcher, no SS, Average 3b, no additional pitching – bullpen or otherwise.

    • Accent Shallow

      Did you watch the games last year?

  • Reggie C.

    Mo should just sit on that bench and chew his gum.

  • BigBlueAL

    Didnt the Rays sign Brian Shouse and Joe Nelson for like nothing???? Yankees could use them.

    • Lanny

      but that would entail cashman to actually FIND talent and use scouts and some imagination instead of using blank checks. god forbid!

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        Yeah, because last years bullpen, similar to this years bullpen, wasnt one of the two or three best in baseball. IDIOT.

        • BigBlueAL

          I actually brought up Shouse and Nelson because Im pretty sure either Mike or Ben mentioned during the off-season about picking these guys up for nothing. One of the reasons alot of people said Tampa had a great off-season was because of adding cheap guys like these 2 for the bullpen.

      • Christian

        You mean like when he signed Bruny? And Edwar. And Veras.

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

        Because you can’t make lemonade out of lemons.

        Or do you want heavy regulation for those who don’t agree with the majority view?

        There are plenty of people who don’t agree with the majority view.

        Lanny’s problem isn’t that he “doesn’t agree with the majority view”. It’s that he’s an intractable asshole who does nothing other than walk on people’s graves and stab dying men. He’s never anywhere to be found except for when moments of misery happen, and he does nothing other than revel in the misery and shit on the wounded.

        There’s nothing wrong with having a differing opinion. There is something wrong with being a useless dickweed.

      Do you need the laughs that badly? Criticism is fine and all, but it is hard to take it seriosuly when it is done by useless trolls.

      • Lanny

        You can make all the excuses you want. You are what your record is. Now you all can be sunny and dream of a 20 game win streak but you are fooling yourselves by not being realistic about the teams problems and shortcomings. So call whoever is realistic a troll or whatever. it doesn’t change the fact that this team has many problems and getting back an injured player won’t solve them all.

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

          WHAT. WOULD. YOU. DO. THAT. THE. YANKEES. HAVEN’T. DONE?

          It’s one thing to criticize and comment, it’s another thing to complain. You do the latter.

        • Justin

          There is a difference between being realistic and discussing the weaknesses and only showing up when the team is losing and proclaiming the sky to be falling and ripping on anyone who tries to think positively.

          Sure, the team is clearly flawed. There are still 130+ games left…baseball is a marathon. That doesn’t mean they will turn it around, but it is way too early to say things are over, especially based on their track record of dominating the second half over the last handful of years.

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

          You’re not realistic.

          REALISTIC PEOPLE DON’T SCREAM AT THE TOP OF THEIR LUNGS HOW SHITTY THE TEAM IS WHEN WE’RE LOSING 6-4, THEN SHUT UP AND DISAPPEAR WHEN WE TIE IT UP 6-6, THEN MAGICALLY REAPPEAR TO TALK MORE SHIT WHEN WE’RE LOSING 8-6 AGAIN.

          You’re not a realist, Lanny, you’re a coward. Cowards talk shit when things are bad and clam up and stay quiet when things are good. if you had ever once in your life shown actual joy at a Yankee success, I’d give you the benefit of the doubt. You never have. The only times you have anything to say is when you appear to talk shit about a Yankee setback. You’re a fucking worthless coward.

    These are some of the roughest regular season losses I can remember. I still think they will turn things around, but I hope it starts soon. It is getting comical at this point, really. They finally get some clutch hitting and poor Mo blows up. Unbelievable.

    I feel good with A-Rod coming back as I hope Tex gets a spark with some legit protection behind him. CC needs to go out and earn his money tomorrow, they desperately need a big start from him.

  • Not here to bitch or Moan..just a quick question?

    Instead of all of us bitching can anyone, whos been following the recent 5 game skid and has been noticing the issue, provide a sort of break down of where the problems are. I know its the bullpen, starting rotation, etc..etc.. but It would be great to able to focus on the problems and potential realistic solutions.

    To be honest, okay 28 games in. Tomorrow is a fresh new series a fresh new start. We have sabathia on the mound and our best player comming back. If we are going to start fresh with a clean slate tomorrow is the perfect day. Honestly, I want a put the last 30 games behind me and have the season start tomorrow.

  • Not here to bitch or Moan..just a quick question?

    and i personally believe girardi wont really be going anywhere, due to the fact that the potential replacements dont seem to enticing.
