    Albie makes me nervous

  2. Albie says:

    Well this could get ugly.

  3. dkidd says:

    would rather girardi stuck with burnett

  4. handtius says:

    The walk may have been bad, but if the dude had some run support, this wouldn’t be an issue at all. I know slowey is have the best game of his career, but i’m not bashing AJ here. He’s been really good…really good.

  5. Mike Pop says:

    I’m worried.

    • Mike Pop says:

      Well, I don’t see how Kubel can take that pitch.

      But, I’m happy with it. Hah.

  6. handtius says:

    Albie don’t scare me. I think he’s going to be very good as the year goes on.

  7. Matt-Pitt says:

    Shows how much we know. Sonnanstine just hit an rbi double, hah.

  8. handtius says:

    Fuck YEAH!!!! Albie is my dude.

  9. cjc says:

    nice job

  10. Matt-Pitt says:

    Big strike out. Come on offense, wake up a little here.

  11. daveg says:

    Here’s to hoping that this nice, long inning tightened up Slowey’s arm.

  12. Will says:

    thank you

  13. cjc says:

    maybe the long inning hurts Slowey a bit (I know I’m grasping at straws here)

  14. dkidd says:

    9 outs left. we’re winning this game

  15. Matt-Pitt says:

    Getting the leadoff man on would be nice.

  16. Reggie C. says:

    Wang’s ready.

  17. Mike Pop says:

    HE’S BACK!!!

  18. handtius says:

    There’s your lead of man.

  19. Jamal G. says:

    No fuckin’ doubter.

  20. dkidd says:

    halfway there

  21. Mike Axisa says:

    ZOMG why didn’t A-Rod bunt?

  22. Infamous says:

    But he should be bunting1!!!!11 How selfish

  23. Charlie says:

    wtf is up with the bj’s? when exactly are they gonna fall back down to eart?

    • whozat says:

      When they stop playing teams that suck.

      Also…Halladay is pitching today. That process will probably NOT start on a day where Doc is on the mound :-)

  24. Will says:

    Not clutch.

  25. putt says:

    another meaningless HR for ARod. Oh wait..

  26. Mike Pop says:

    But he used roids.

    It takes away a run. Yanks are actually down 2 to -1 right now.

    Ya, Godzilla!

  27. Matt-Pitt says:

    Awesomeness.

  28. Jamal G. says:

    I love baseball.

  29. Moshe Mandel says:

    There we go. Now hopefully Swish can get back on track.

  30. BigBlueAL says:

    AJ must be like now we start hitting!!!!

  31. Jamal G. says:

    If Girardi called for that, he just angered one of his most loyal supporters.

  32. BigBlueAL says:

    STOP BUNTING!!!!!!!! I hate this shit!!!!!!!!

  33. Infamous says:

    Pinch run for Matsui?

  34. handtius says:

    I actually like that bunt.

  35. Nady Nation says:

    Noooo

  36. dkidd says:

    never thought i’d say this: i like that bunt

  37. Mike Pop says:

    The bunt…….

  38. Charlie says:

    wonder when the last time a team had 3 walk offs in a row was..

  39. zs190 says:

    We have Cano available for PH today, who do you PH him for? Pena or Cash?

  40. Charlie says:

    why would you bunt him there? Sorry, but i don’t quite trust melky enough for that

  41. BigBlueAL says:

    Cano better be ready to pinch-hit.

  42. Stryker says:

    what’s this obsession with bunting lately??

  43. Jamal G. says:

    Nice throw, jackass.

  44. Matt-Pitt says:

    I’ll take it.

  45. BigBlueAL says:

    Still hated the bunt.

  46. Mike Pop says:

    QUICK!

    Ice his knees.

  47. dkidd says:

    awful awful throw

    game over

  48. Tony says:

    Watching Matsui run made my knees hurt.

  49. What a horrible throw Denard Span. That should have been close. Matsui looked like he was dying trying to get down the line.

  50. Mark B says:

    Way to go, Melky….way to come through again in the clutch!

  51. dre says:

    what a bad throw!!
    godzilla got lucky! he would’ve been out with those bum knees! lol

  52. Jamal G. says:

    What a fucking play, wow.

  53. Stryker says:

    hot damn what a play!

  54. Reggie C. says:

    umm…. wow

  55. Charlie says:

    i would definitely PH for cash, not pena

  56. dkidd says:

    pena got puntoed

  57. Matt-Pitt says:

    WOW… I tip my cap to that play. That was amazing to see.

  58. Mike Pop says:

    Lol @ the slide.

  59. BigBlueAL says:

    Well at least Mauer and Mourneau arent up for a while.

  60. BigBlueAL says:

    Damon was even laughing at that throw from Span.

  61. Charlie says:

    im starting to trust albie a little more, but i will still kill myself if clueless puts veras in here

  62. Reggie C. says:

    Joe G. should’ve brought in Cervelli for Cash now that AJ is out.

  63. Mike Pop says:

    Hmmm…

  64. Matt-Pitt says:

    Throw strikes!! Come on man. We just tied the game and you do this. Challenge them.

  65. Nady Nation says:

    Fucking leadoff walks.

  66. Charlie says:

    HOly shit, throw some friggin strikes

  67. Cash is having a rough day. He’s been a terrible reciever who cost AJ and now Alby a strike. Rough day for Cash. Not to mention that he tried to backhand a slider in the dirt and it cost the Yanks a run. I’m sure he’s better than he’s shown today.

  68. Matt-Pitt says:

    Bring in Cervilli man.

  69. Jamal G. says:

    Kevin Cash sucks.

  70. BigBlueAL says:

    This is ridiculous.

  71. Mike Pop says:

    Back in trouble.

    Damn leadoff walks.

  72. Tony says:

    WE WANT FRANKIE

  73. Joey H. says:

    Agh cash is terrible.

  74. Keep it coming Cash. You hit .200, you at least have to play decent defense.

  75. Jamal G. says:

    Kevin Cash is my new Cody Ransom – I literally don’t like them.

  76. handtius says:

    Cash is just bad…he’s making this game harder to win.

  77. Mike Axisa says:

    Heads up play by Albie.

  78. Moshe Mandel says:

    Huge play. Huge.

  79. Jamal G. says:

    Fundamental Twins Baseball at its best.

  80. BigBlueAL says:

    Cano better be leading off the bottom of the 8th. Nice play Albie.

  81. Mike Pop says:

    Nice job by Albie there.

  82. Shdwrptr says:

    Wow. Awesome play

  83. Matt-Pitt says:

    Albie, way to be heads up. Thats a HUGE out to get. Now get a double play and let us all forget you walked the leadoff man when your team just tied it up.

  84. Joey H. says:

    And you get DJ’s crotch in your face. HA!

  85. Mike Pop says:

    WTF CASH, CATCH THAT!!!!!

  86. dre says:

    great play be Albie!

    and no Cash is not better than this, theres a reason he got dumped by the redsox and is the #4 catcher on the yankees deph chart…

  87. Charlie says:

    kershaw no no thru 7

  88. Jamal G. says:

    Cash, stop failing.

    • Joey H. says:

      Yeah. He’s a severe failure. Wasn’t he Wake’s catcher last year? Should be coming up with those balls in the dirt.

  89. Matt-Pitt says:

    Punto, you make an amazing play… Now ground into a DP.

  90. handtius says:

    If we lose. I could pin the lose on Cash…I’m not serious, but it sure seems that way.

  91. Charlie says:

    shit we really need a GIDP

  92. BigBlueAL says:

    Albie sucks.

  93. Mike Pop says:

    Disgusting.

  94. Tony says:

    Mo is pissed. Alphabet is going to get a stern talking to.

  95. Walked Nick Punto. Wow.

  96. Nady Nation says:

    NICK FUCKING PUNTO.

  97. Moshe Mandel says:

    Can you believe that? Another walk to Punto. Unbelievable.

  98. The Artist says:

    “UPDATE, 3:14 p.m.: Chien-Ming Wang dominated today in Scranton in the first game of a doubleheader. 7 innings, 4 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 1 strikeout. 75 pitches / 49 strikes, 12 of the 21 outs on the ground. He has thrown 13 scoreless innings in AAA. Be interesting to see what the Yankees do next with him.

    The radar gun in Scranton on the scoreboard is unreliable. But a scout I know who was there said Wang got up to 93. The lineup he faced included Travis Hafner, Tony Graffanino and Andy Marte.

    Brian Bruney is expected to start the second game to get his inning in.”
    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/200.....t-yankees/

  99. Infamous says:

    Seriously where are Melancon and Robertson???

    They can atleast throw some friggin strikes

    • Really?

      Melancon- 5 BB in 3.1 innings
      Robertson – 4 BB in 4 innings

      • Infamous says:

        Yea, thats not a small sample size or anything.

      • Charlie says:

        yea, that’s a great sample size. Completely agree with Infamous here.

      • Matt-Pitt says:

        If they threw as often as Albie does, I am almost positive they would have better numbers. Its not their fault they pitched once a week when they were up here.

      • The Artist says:

        Melancon was really surprising. An unrelenting strike thrower in the minors with an “off the charts makeup” and he really got cold feet in the bigs.

        Its the same as with Hughes (who was also billed as the total package) I think the only thing wrong with him is confidence. But you have to earn your way onto a big league roster.

        • Infamous says:

          I would say that they both, especially Melancon, have earned their way onto the major league roster but just havent been given a fair opportunity.

          • The Artist says:

            No, you still dont get it. The big league club is not there to develop players, the players are there to help the team win. Especially with the Yanks.

            Both players have been given chances, now its up to them to make the most of it. I still believe both will be good players for many years, but its up to them (not Girardi) to make it happen.

        • SSS obviously. But, its not like they dominated or pitched well when they were here. If they did, they’d still be here.

  100. Joey H. says:

    Tomko, Seriously?

  101. BigBlueAL says:

    Albie out, Tomko in. I hate this bullpen.

  102. zs190 says:

    Brett Tomko comes in, yikes.

  103. dre says:

    tomko?? is aceves not available?

  104. Brendan says:

    It looked like Albie was crying….

  105. Charlie says:

    You’ve got to be FUCKING KIDDING ME. THrow some strikes!!!!!!!!11!!. Albie the bus is waiting outside. And Jose, you can pack your bags as well for your suckiness

  106. handtius says:

    this could get hard to watch.

  107. Charlie says:

    OH MY GOD. NOT BRETT FUCKING TOMKO!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  108. dre says:

    he should be crying he just walked someobody hitting under .200

  109. Matt-Pitt says:

    I’m already tired of seeng Veras but I am getting tired of seeing Albie too. I used to clamor for him last year but I thought that was because he throws strikes and attacks hitters. Lately, I feel like its hit or walk whenever he is on the mound.

    • Mike Pop says:

      I was always in favor of Robertson to Albie for the last spot in the pen coming into the season.

      Albie has solid stuff, somedays he looks like a fixture in the pen and other days looks absolutely horrible.

  110. Slugger27 says:

    ironic that us yankees fans bitch and whine about RISP… the twins have 15 baserunners and TWO runs…. YIKES

  111. Jamal G. says:

    Cody Ross leads off the bottom of the eight with a double to break up Clayton Kershaw’s no-no.

  112. handtius says:

    can we pay for some stikes?

  113. cjc says:

    Tomko is the best option really this pen is embarassing

  114. handtius says:

    tomko? 93 mph?

  115. Matt-Pitt says:

    Teix!!!

  116. E-ROC says:

    Gold. Glove.

  117. Mike Pop says:

    That’s why you’re the man.

  118. BigBlueAL says:

    WOW what a play by Tex!!!!

  119. handtius says:

    That’s a fucking play!!!

  120. cjc says:

    Tex is great

  121. Jamal G. says:

    MARK TEI-XEI-RA!!!

  122. Mike Axisa says:

    What a play by Tex.

  123. zs190 says:

    Wow, no way the Giambino makes that play.

  124. dre says:

    tex is the freakin man!!

  125. mustang says:

    WOW !!!!!

  126. handtius says:

    he was lying down when he threw that strike to home.

  127. Linnea says:

    Nice belly flop throw from Mark Teixiera.

  128. Matt-Pitt says:

    Come on, Tomko. You gotta throw strikes.

  129. Matt-Pitt says:

    Come on, Tomko. You gotta throw strikes.

  130. Mike Pop says:

    Brett fuc*ing Tomko.

  131. Shdwrptr says:

    Wow

  132. southernyankeefan says:

    UUUUUUUUUGE

  133. cjc says:

    hey Cash made a play how can we lose now

    Scary question if there is no Mo who closes?

  134. BigBlueAL says:

    Cano better be leading off this inning.

  135. mustang says:

    nice job Tomko !!!

  136. Charlie says:

    we got lucky there,but don’t trust tomko because of this

  137. Brendan says:

    I just yelled so loud that I sent the dog running.

  138. Jamal G. says:

    Alright, we got Cano, Damon and Jeter coming up; let’s get this over with and somehow get Mauer and Morneau in the ninth.

  139. daveg says:

    Sonnanstine has a hit and an RBI! We could use a guy like that in the middle of our lineup

    • Joey H. says:

      Yeah after that fucking managerial fail.

      • BigBlueAL says:

        What happened??

        • Mike Pop says:

          Per Rotoworld:

          The Rays listed two third basemen on their lineup card on Sunday, causing them to lose their designated hitter.

          The plan was for Evan Longoria to DH and bat third on Sunday, but he was listed at third, along with Ben Zobrist. Since he didn’t take a position in the top of the first, the Rays have now had to go to starting pitcher Andy Sonnanstine as their No. 3 hitter.

    • BigBlueAL says:

      WTF??? How does he have an at-bat????

      • Doug says:

        Rays listed two 3rd basemen on their lineup card by mistake, so they lost their DH. Andy Sonnanstine is batting 3rd instead of Evan Longoria.

        • BigBlueAL says:

          WOW. I remember a game in Cleveland a while back that happened too. Dont remember if Manuel was the manager or Hargrove.

  140. Joey H. says:

    Who is up? Probably see Cano hit right?

  141. Matt-Pitt says:

    Tough break for Cano. Ripped it, just right at him.

  142. Joey H. says:

    Wow what a pitch to loose your no no on.

  143. Mike Pop says:

    Brett Tomko – True Yankee.

    Calm down, Kay, jeez.

  144. mustang says:

    another walk off by A-Rod called it

  145. Joey H. says:

    Cone’s voice makes me sick. I want Leiter!

  146. BigBlueAL says:

    Mo warming up!!

  147. Jamal G. says:

    Captain Tangible.

  148. How many hits does Jeter have like that?

  149. thisisthedavid says:

    AROD>BARRY BONDS

  150. Mike Pop says:

    Let’s go teix.

  151. Shdwrptr says:

    Here we go

  152. Matt-Pitt says:

    Teix, come on man! Do it again!

  153. Infamous says:

    nice piece of hitting Damon

  154. ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops says:

    Give Tomko the win!!!

  155. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    come on text lets get a basehit.

  156. BigBlueAL says:

    Gardenhire really has no faith in his bullpen huh. Figured Crain would come in now.

  157. Infamous says:

    Man, I love these kinda games, but I hate them at the same time.

  158. ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops says:

    Bunt him over!!!

  159. Joey H. says:

    Wow. Just missed that one.

  160. cjc says:

    fuck the first ball hit to right field that doesn’t make the seats

  161. Matt-Pitt says:

    He just missed it… Come on A-Roddd

  162. Mike Pop says:

    Okay, Teix. I’ll take it.

    Alex time.

  163. cjc says:

    a nice single would be money here

  164. mustang says:

    A_ROD!!!!!!!

  165. Shdwrptr says:

    They’re pitching around him

  166. cjc says:

    awwwwwwwwwwwwww that was your pitch damn it

  167. cjc says:

    Hitdeki time

  168. Shdwrptr says:

    Here comes Matsui for Mojares

  169. Matt-Pitt says:

    Alright, Matsui. Clear the bases.

  170. BigBlueAL says:

    That didnt hit him!!

  171. Doug says:

    The ol’ unintentional intentional walk.

  172. ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops says:

    Do they make a double-switch to keep Cano in the game? Makes sense to me.

  173. Shdwrptr says:

    A walk right now would be pretty sweet

  174. Alex S says:

    walk that runner in!

  175. The Artist says:

    Come to Papa. . . .

  176. Matt-Pitt says:

    I’d take another strike

  177. dkidd says:

    his control is tomkoesque

  178. Mike Pop says:

    That was a ball, Matsui!!!

  179. southernyankeefan says:

    come on godzilla

  180. BigBlueAL says:

    Looked like Ball 4 there.

  181. cjc says:

    shit that was ball 4

  182. southernyankeefan says:

    SHIT

  183. cjc says:

    and that was ball 5 awesome

  184. Stryker says:

    THAT WAS BALL FUCKING FOUR

  185. Alex S says:

    that was ball 4……another walkoff!?

  186. BigBlueAL says:

    Fucking horrible. Swung at Ball 4 twice.

  187. dkidd says:

    hideki was required to strike out. new team policy is walk-off wins only

  188. Matt-Pitt says:

    Swung at ball 4… While the ball was in the glove.

    Alright, assuming Mo is coming in. I wouldn’t trust anybody else with Mauer, Morneau and Kubel coming to the plate. If anyone is going to break the tie without being second guessed, I would pick Mo 10 outta 10 times.

  189. Shdwrptr says:

    He should have taken the last one but you can’t blame him that much. I would have taken 3 in a row after going 3-0 but that’s just me. He commited to swinging when the count was 3-1

  190. Conan the Barack O'Brian says:

    eh. wouldn’t have been a walk-off. not interested !)

  191. Jake H says:

    Great chance to win it there. Tex just missed that long fly ball.

  192. The Artist says:

    Ooof. Just saw Burnett’s line for today

    IP 6.2 H 6 R 2 ER 2 SO 7 BB 6

  193. Matt-Pitt says:

    Thought that caught too much of the plate 0-2… Would’ve tried and pushed the envelope.

  194. daveg says:

    Mo’s coming in at 89-90 MPH

  195. cjc says:

    sorry Justin the ump doesn’t speak canadian

  196. The Artist says:

    Cervelli in for Defense, very nice.

  197. Tony says:

    Another mystery strike zone.

  198. BigBlueAL says:

    Damn this is Mo’s 3rd outing in 4 days including a 2-inning stint yesterday.

  199. Mike Pop says:

    Swisher/Melky walk off.

  200. Matt-Pitt says:

    Lets win this man the ball game… Another Melky walkoff?
