    Can someone tell Cano to pretend it’s the 2nd half of the season?

      He’ll be fine. He’s still working the count great and I say that someone said his BABIP is like .059 during his slump

      • Accent Shallow

        Well, his BABIP is gonna be low as hell if he’s just hitting soft ground balls. Sure, some of those are going to sneak past IFers from time to time, but it’s not like he’s smoking the ball right at people.

      Let me guess… you saw it with your own eyes.

    • Accent Shallow

      He hadn’t played above AA, and had only a few at bats there. I’m not too upset about him being in the minors.

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

    Cervelli’s got a little hop in his step.

    • Tom Zig

      Would Molina have made it home on that one?

  • Accent Shallow

    It doesn’t look like they’ll need that run, but I’ll take it.

    It’s rubbing off in the minors.

    From @TrentonThunder “Jorge Vazquez can mash…how long will his next home run go? He has a grand slam as Trenton leads Binghamton 5-0 in the 5th tonight”

    Jason Bay with another 3-run jack.

      I’m looking forward to the Yankees robbing the Sox of him soon hopefully.

        Don’t hold your breath.

        • http://www.livevideo.com/RBIRadio Joey H

          You don’t think it’s possible?

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

            I don’t really see it. I think the Sox reup him, and I don’t think we add a sizeable contract this winter.

            • http://www.livevideo.com/RBIRadio Joey H

              I get it. I doubt the money is at concern but more or less the long term deal. But admit it. It would be totally sweet to steal him like we did with Tex.

        • Tom Zig

          I don’t see the Sox letting him go to free agency. Imagine that lineup without him.

          If he does sign with the Yanks, I picture the Sox signing Holliday

          • http://www.livevideo.com/RBIRadio Joey H

            Well he will hit free agency. He thinks that it is tremendous to do that and not for nothing the guy is a good player. He worked hard to get to free agency and deserves a shot at the open market.

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

            If he does sign with the Yanks, I picture the Sox signing Holliday

            Meh, I think both Bay and Holliday will likely get deals well beyond their actual production warrants.

            Matt Holliday = Angels or Mets

    • Jose

      He is Manny Ramirez.

      • http://www.livevideo.com/RBIRadio Joey H

        Sorry but I have to do this. He is Manny minus the ‘roids.

        • Jose

          HCG is not in the steroid drug class. It is a glycoprotein, big difference.

          • http://www.livevideo.com/RBIRadio Joey H

            Stick around. You haven’t heard the last of this.

          • Accent Shallow

            It’s typically used in conjunction with anabolic steroids, specifically after a cycle to restart the body’s testosterone production.

            Either that, or Manny’s trying to get pregnant.

            • Jose

              It is used in hypogonadism. Maybe Manny really does have a medical condition. Can we give him the benefit of the doubt right now like we did with * for so long.

              • Accent Shallow

                It comes down to Occam’s Razor.

                • Jose

                  I believe both are equally as succinct reasons. I don’t know if Occam’s razor applies. Maybe I’m just crazy…

        • Drew

          Jason Bay and Manny Ramirez don’t belong in the same sentence.

          • Jose

            Jason Bay 09 OPS: 1.164
            ManRam 09 OPS: 1.133

            Where is Manny for the next 50 games?

            For 2009 Bay > Ramirez
            Can you argue with that?

            They do belong in the same sentance, don’t give him God-like powers. Only look at this years production.

            • Drew

              Right.
              30 games>>>>>>>>>15 year career.

              • Jose

                I said this year’s production. I would never question the career. I made that abundantly clear I was only looking at this year’s value in my numbers.

        Don’t hold your breath.

    Oh, I don’t know why I didn’t say this earlier and it’s way too late now but I don’t care because I love the line:

    A-Rod told Jeremy Guthrie to go home and get his fucking shinebox.

  • Drew

    Wearing a hulk hand at a game is worse than wearing a glove.

  • Will

    Í dont want to rip on Teixeira because I know how much potential he has, but does anyone else think he could use a day off. Maybe just to get his head straight.

  • Drew

    So it’s official. Talk about steroids in every Al AB.

  • Tom Zig

    Tex’s batting average >,=, or < Edwar’s weight

    • Will

      Still probably higher lol.

    • Accent Shallow

      Tex would have to go 0 for his next 35 or so to get to Edwar’s weight.

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

      Nah, Edwar’s about 170.

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

        Wet.

  • Eirias

    Alright, everyone. What diabolical new meme is Oaktag?

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

    “Big Game” James Shields enters the bottom of the sixth with a three-run lead and then proceeds to give up a Jason Bay three-run shot and a JD Drew two-run jack. Can we please stop with the dumb-ass nickname?

    • Doug

      Yikes. That’s bad news for my fantasy team.

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

    Should I bring a sign that says “Oaktag” to the Mets game on Wednesday?

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

      What does that mean?

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

      No.

      Mets fans can’t read.

    • http://www.livevideo.com/RBIRadio Joey H

      Why not just bring a sheet of Oaktag? That would be even funnier. Inside joke-Esque.

    • Doug

      As long as you print your “Oaktag” sign on oaktag.

      CC means business.

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

        Girardi promised him ice cream in the clubhouse.

  • Tom Zig

    Wow that was a pretty breaking ball

  • yankees=warriors

    Sweeet!!! Sabathia the ace is finally here.
    It’s too bad he gave up the 2 hits in the first inning, this feels like a no-hitter!

  • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

    There is no way CC is letting Girardi take him out of this game.

  • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

    Who’s pitching tomorrow? Adam Eaton?

    I pity him….

    • Accent Shallow

      Couldn’t ask for a better matchup for Hughes.

    “No curtains here baby”

  • A.D.

    Cano coming out of it…

  • Drew

    Ha Grit looks bored.

    CC pitch count..?
