              Oh, I’m still confident that we’re winning the Al East.

              I’m just not confident at all that we’re beating Roy Halladay when he’s on his stuff. Babe Ruth, Bugs Bunny, and Jesus Christ would go 0-3 against this guy right now.

          • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

            I think he meant “In an alternate universe, on a planet called Earth-2, the Yew Nork Ynakees are winning this game.”

                Good thing the season doesn’t end right now, Theoretical Joe Morgan.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    3 runs down does feel like 8 runs down right now…

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

      Halladay’s ERA is over 3. So he gives up at least that much per 9 innings.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

    Power of positive thinking…

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      That’s why we love ya, Ben.

      But it still aint happening.

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

    Maybe we should tell the guys to try and hit the ball right back up the middle and see if we can maybe hit Halladay with a batted ball.

    If we can clip his elbow, maybe they take him out as a precaution. That’s the best I’ve got.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      LOL…..honestly trying to go back up the middle would be intelligent…after watching AROD trying to pull an outside pitch…

    • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

      Have Gardner charge the mound.

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        He’d get there pretty quick.

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

          A mound fight of Halladay v. Gardner would be reminiscent of Ryan v. Ventura.

          Or possibly Farnsworth v. Wilson. Or possibly Pacquiao v. Hatton.

          • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

            I forgot to mention that Gardner has to bring his bat.

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

      Maybe they should just rename injuries “Yankees”.

      Like, “The Mets are concerned that J.J. Putz’s diminished velocity may be related to his Yankeed elbow.

  • Mike HC

    I mean, Halladay’s ERA is not zero, so we should be able to score at least a couple of runs

    • Mike HC

      ha, just saw Ben’s comment up above

  • C.Panella

    Am i the only person who loses more and more confindence in this team every day… Pettitte is strugling at best same with burnett and hughes has had one good start…The bullpen is a mess…Tex looks downright LOST and Arod is not exactly 100% this team doesnt look good at all right now

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Then don’t watch. No one is forcing you.

      • C.Panella

        Who the hell said i dont wanna watch..Like wtf are u talking about dude…All im saying is this team does not look good at all but NICE reply make more sense next time plz

        • JobaWockeeZ

          If you’re confidence has been hurting every game then take a break. One game they’ll breakout and go on to win and win and win. The Yankees always seem to do this. So if it hurts to watch; don’t watch. Ben K. I believe did the same thing.

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

    • LiveFromNewYork

      If they’re all lost at the same time perhaps they will all get found at the same time. And that would be very cool. I think they don’t know how to play together.

      Or something. Can’t quite figure it out.

      What the hell is this “baserunner” word that you use? What does it mean?

  • Mat

    Hey hey hey, don’t mess with the Karma. Doc needs to stay healthy if the Jays are going to win the East.

    What a start to the game though, both guys were right on until the 4th. Guess we’ll see if it holds up, but I’d like to add that I’m loving the crowd enthusiasm in TO. Nice to see October sized crowds in May.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

    Someone tell me why Matsui is out for someone else slightly less injured than he is. I’m on Gameday, and I’d love to hear why this is happening.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Slightly less injured? Where did we get that from?

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Benjamin Kabak

        Swisher’s elbow hasn’t been 100 percent. That was one of the reasons he’s resting tonight I believe.

        • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

          Haven’t heard much about that. i think its more of people seeing him slump and assuming the two are connected. I’d say he has been playing everyday and is 2-12 v Halladay with 5K’s is more of the reason he is sitting.

    • El Generalissimo

      Singleton said possibly because his knee is barking because the turf… but nothing definitive yet.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      No body said boo on the tv broadcast, except that it was a surprise to see Swisher…

    • Mike HC

      Tightness in Matsui’s right hamstring

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

    Halladay hasn’t even thrown 50 pitches yet. He could throw a CG <80.

    I know Halladay is a good pitcher, but holy fuck this is frustrating.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Good Mo! This is brutal. Halladay is really on and mowing them down…..it’s going to be quite a shock when the Yanks come back and win this…I think…I hope…

  • Nady Nation

    Halladay is a great pitcher, but no team rolls over and dies for him like the Yankees. It would take a minor miracle for this team to push past 3 runs off this guy.

  • Mat

    With Posada and Jeter in the lineup, maybe things would be different, but it doesn’t seem like Arod or Tex can hit Roy tonight, so I’m guessing 8 innings at least!!

        I am normally not this cynical but enough is enough. And yes, I am complaining about the 4th string catcher because it was a bullshit signing when there were more viable options this year, last year, previous year.

        • Mike HC

          If it is really coming down to your fourth string catcher, I think there are bigger problems to worry about.

        • V

  • YankeeHal

    Chien-Ming Wang has tossed 5 shutout innings for S/WB. Just two singles and one walk. S/WB has lost three in a row and now hasn’t scored in 31 consecutive innings. And we thought it was the big Yankees who couldn’t hit in the clutch.

      The game is on turf, a lot of guys are a little banged up, Halladay is on the mound. I guess it made sense to rest some guys, but unfortunately, many of the guys are really injured, and not just resting.

    • pc69

      Not for most teams that can hit. But tonights line up is DOA. ARod still adjusting, Swisher has horrible numbers and is in a semi slump. Auto outs – Gardner, Cash, and Tex, since he is absent.

      Now, Matsui is on the AARP plan with Posada, Jeter, Molina, Nady, Wang…Man the Yankees pissed off the baseball Gods something good

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

        Meh, I think all of that is moot. Even this lineup could score three plus runs and come back and win this thing…

        … if they weren’t facing one of the 2-3 best pitchers on the planet right now.

  • Evan

    If this was a double header, Halladay would start the next one too.

    As an outsider, one thing I can’t understand is the Yanks letting go of Wilson Betemit this off-season. He could have done a great job with Arod on the mend, and now could be in for Jeter. It would have been a much better option for your team than Pena or Ransom.

    This is what happens when you walk guys. Just throw strikes. This is the teams biggest problem, the pitchers can’t throw strikes. That inning where he let up 3 runs, he walked 2.

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

    That was a sweet double play.

    • Evan

      At least they can show that on the highlight.

  • Mike Pop

    2 runs this inning.

    Chip away.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Never let it be said that you don’t have fight in ya!

  • Nick L

    love that play by cano

  • Charlie

    y pitchout for scott rolen?

  • putt

    That was a pretty sweet DP

    • Mike Pop

      That’s what she said.

      • Nady Nation

        Very well played.

  • nathan

    Dont wanna wish injury on Doc.. so how about a headache or tummy-ache.. at this rate the pen wont be needed for 15 innings

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Is a it pathetic that I’m excited that Gardner is just having a good atbat?

  • JobaWockeeZ

    56 pitches on Doc. 56. In the 7th.

    • Mike Pop

      Pure…. dominance, until Teix bashes a 2-run shot here.

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

      Might as well start him again tomorrow.

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

    This is probably our best chance at another baserunner.

  • Charlie

    theres no way hes this fuckin good. our offense is looking putrid.

    • Drew

      Halladay is that fucking good. Duh.

    • pat

      Umm no, hes good.

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

      Halladay has a career 131 ERA+.

      He’s that fuckin good.

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

    HEY A BASERUNNER!

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

    The Yanks have hit one ball to the outfield all game, and that was Damon’s single/thrown out at second play.

    Aaaand there’s the second ball to the outfield.

  • Mike HC

    What do you know, another Damon hit

  • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

    Holy Shit! An extra-base hit!

  • Charlie

    Damon is a god

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

    Ah, Johnny. We love ya.

  • C.Panella

    Lets see if Tex actually has a pulse

    • C.Panella

      nope didnt think so …..sigh :-(

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

        I’m totally not mad at all there.

        It’s Roy Halladay.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Damon again is the only one trying to win! That’s all we need.

  • Blue Jays Daze

    I’d say here is the key moment of the game…

    • JobaWockeeZ

      For the Jays.

  • Mike HC

    He does not want to put Teix on. This is the pitch right here

    • Mike HC

      but Teix decided not to swing

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

    Teixeira is a black hole.

  • Mike Pop

    Teix, seriously?

  • Nick L

    tex, hmmmmm….

  • Charlie

    honestly tex, i fucking hate you

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

      It’s ROY HALLADAY.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    I’m officially starting to worry about Teix ever finding it this year…

  • C.Panella

    At whast point does text get moved down in the order or even out for a day this guy is an auto out right now….

    • Mike Pop

      With so many guys hurt, tough to move him down.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Oh its 74 pitches. Thanks for the update Yahoo.

  • V

    Halladay is fucking good.

    I’m just glad he’s not on the Red Sox (like 1999 Pedro).

  • YankeeHal

    Chien Ming Wang pitched 6 shutout inning in an excellent outing for Scranton. 3 hits 3 BBs 6 Ks on 82 pitches. Game is scoreless in 7th. S/WB offense is now scoreless in 32 consecutive innings…franchise record.

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

    BITCH TITS!!!

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Hahahahahhah!

  • Brooklyn Ed

    oh look, a run.

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

    Is that clutch enough?

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      No, it was only 1 run. Clutch is 2 or more runs produced late in a game…

      • V

        No, no, you’re wrong. It’s only clutch if you take the team from a deficit to a lead, duh.

        • Mattingly’s Love Child

          Oh that’s right. My bad.

          • Mike HC

            Nah, you guys have it wrong. It is only truly clutch if it was done by a Yankee who has won a championship, because if you have not won a championship, nothing you do can be clutch.

    • Mike Pop

      No, should of hit a 3-run homer.

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

        I’m so disappointed ARod didn’t fistpump that shizz.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        I know. A-Rod only cares about himself. He should always hit a grand slam even with no one on base. What an unclutch bastard.

        • Mike Pop

          Mike Lowell hits grand slams with 2 on. I don’t know how the fuck he does it, but he does.

          • JobaWockeeZ

            Because he is the clutch 3rd baseman that A-Rod will never be. He is so clutch and gritty that his runs are counted as 2.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Woo-hoo!

  • pat

    FUCK YER SHUTOUT DOC

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

    OMG a run.

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

    HOLY FUCK A RUN!

  • nathan

    time to invent an injury for Tex?

  • Blue Jays Daze

    Steroids or not, Arod can hit any pitch…

  • JobaWockeeZ

    We hit with RISP and we scored against Halladay. A turnaround? Pity from the baseball Gods?

  • Mike Pop

    I’ll take it.

  • Mike HC

    Any chance A-Rod tries to take a base here?? Or are we just waiting for the tying homer outta Swish

      LMFAO. +1

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        About time that one got a laugh. I just might have to retire it while I’m ahead.

  • Mike HC

    that pitch is just not fair

    • Blue Jays Daze

      Agreed, nasty

      • Mike Pop

        We will give you 75 million for Roy Halladay.

        • Blue Jays Daze

          After what you gave AJ, we’ll take 125 million…

          • V

            Done.

          • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

            150 million.

          • Mike Pop

            Did you want A.J. back after he opted-out?

  • Mike Pop

    Keep it 3-1, AJ.

  • E-ROC
    • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

      Fascinating.

      • Blue Jays Daze

        LOL

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

        Truly, he has a dizzying intellect.

  • Blue Jays Daze

    Finally, Snider gets a hit off AJ…

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

    How many pitches did Burnett throw that inning?

    • V

      4. Can pitch the 8th, maybe even the 9th.

  • Mike Pop

    A.J. has pitched well tonight.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Can’t really ask for much more than that…..I guess a 2 hit shutout, but with the way the Jays have been mashing that’s pretty ridiculous.

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

    Nice, Canó.

  • Blue Jays Daze

    Will AJ come out for the 8th?

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Depends on what the pitch count is at.

      • Mike Pop

        I’d send him out. No reason to bring the pen in for this game.

        • Mattingly’s Love Child

          Might as well send him out to start the inning anyway.

  • Mike HC

    Ah, another anti smoking commercial. So, if I get outta breath going up steps, I have emphysema??? That sounds medically accurate. Right?

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

    AJ’s pitched well.

    Halladay has pitched better.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      AJ gave up 3 runs. BUST. Why can’t we ever get a good free agent?

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

    Melky Cabrera >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Roy Halladay

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

      Hmm, so Melky gets a hit in the top of the 8th, and then Kevin Cash comes up to bat… what I wouldn’t give for Juan Miranda right now.

      • Nick L

        yup

    • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

      Hey Blue Jays Daze, we’ll trade you Melky for Halladay and Snyder. Deal or Deal?

  • Mike Pop

    Would be nice to have Miranda right about now……

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

    It would be pointless to have PH Cervelli here, right?

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

      Yeah, no.

      We don’t have any pinch hitters at the moment.

      • Mike HC

        Pinch hitters? Pinch hitters?? Have you seen the lineup today, we don’t have that many hitters available tonight period.

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

          Okay… but the fact remains that if Miranda was up here and Berroa was not, either Miranda or Tex wouldn’t have started and would have been available to PH there.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    For a journeyman catch, Cash looks 12 years old…

  • dkidd

    i can’t remember the last time melky had a bad at-bat

  • Nick L

    jeez can we make it any easier for Doc

  • JobaWockeeZ

    There goes making Doc work. He’ll definitely be back in the 9th.

    • Blue Jays Daze

      Looks like the CG call was a good one. Is it just me or is this game extremely quick?

      • Nick L

        it went quick

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Well someone said the Yankees and Blue Jays collaborated to see Star Trek at 9:30. So they rushed. And the sad thing is they’ll actually make it on time.

      • Mike Pop

        Quick…. for now.

        We win it in the 9th.

  • Lance

    The silver lining is that even if Jeter could pinch hit, the same thing would have happened…

  • pat

    Burnett and Halladay are both going to pitch complete games :(

  • Mike Pop

    1-2-3 inning.

    Pena starts out with single. Damon doubles down the line.

    I don’t know what will happen from there, but that’s how it starts.

    • Mike Pop

      Scratch that.

  • Yankee1010

    Kevin Cash hitting against Roy Halladay in the bottom of the 8th inning with 1 on and 1 out says all you need to know about the bench.

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

      No it doesn’t.

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

    So did Girardi leave AJ in there too long?

    • Mike Pop

      I doubt there was a comeback anyway.

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

        WHAT WAS ALL THAT ONE IN A MILLION TALK?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!?

    • Zack

      came into the inning at 93 pitches, if he took him out you’d be crying to stop babying him and leave him in

      • Nick L

        well put

    • Nick L

      i bet the result would have been no different

    • cjc

      maybe but who else can you trust

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      You have to consider the alternative. Our bullpen isn’t exactly lock-down these days.

      He did the right thing. Save your bullets for tomorrow, this was going to be a tough game to win in the best of circumstances.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Well I guess that is game….

  • Blue Jays Daze

    There goes our MVP…who should man 2B at the all star game if fans vote correctly.

    • Mike Pop

      You know Pedroia is getting it.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Ian Kinsler says hello

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Agreed. But then again Pedroia is getting voted in.

      • Blue Jays Daze

        Quite the AL 2B lineup….so who site out? Aaron has 9 HRs to go with his 30 RBIs and a .357 average, Ian Kinsler has the same stats minus 2 RBIs and with a .319 average, but I think you guys are right that due to historical stats and sentiment, Pedroia will get it.

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

          but I think you guys are right that due to historical stats and sentiment, Pedroia will get it.

          That, plus the usual Boston asshattery.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    2 games out of 3 ain’t so bad. Let’s win the rest Yankees.

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

    When AJ throws over to first base, are those Canadians in the stands saying “Boooo”, or “Moose”?

    As in, “I like having sex with MOOOOOSE!!!”

    Nice radar gun. YES= Low Budget?

    • Drew

      (My9 tonight but same deal)

  • dre

    for you all people defending Girardis lineup
    Garnder over swisher is just plain stupid as bad as swisher may be playing he will still take more pitches and be more of a threat than Gardner.

    Cash over Cervelli maybe not stupid but not smart either. Cervelli just caught 3 games, his jitters are gone and actually got a few hits..oh and yesterday was a day off, Cash will obviously be a little nervous..so yeah not a smart move, you want the best lineup possible outthere against a pitcher like Holiday..

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    That’s it, I’ve had it with this team. The manager sucks, the pitching coach sucks, the GM sucks and the players all suck.

    You can all kill me for being a fair-weather fan, but I’m telling you right this very minute that I will not watch another Yankee game for the next 22 hours!!!

  • Mike Pop

    A.J., you are so much better than this.
