• Will

    Albie makes me nervous

  • Albie

    Well this could get ugly.

    • cjc

      cross your fingers

  • dkidd

    would rather girardi stuck with burnett

    • cjc

      he had nothing left

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    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.

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

      +1.

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        Thank you. seriously.

    • Will (the other one)

      Seriously. The real crime is that AJ pitched like that all afternoon without ever having the prospect of picking up the win. Sucka hung in there and did a hell of a job.

    • Linnea

      Srsly. AJ clearly loses his stuff a little bit when he’s not getting run support. I’m a big AJ booster, but I think he would not have been walking so many guys in the 7th with a little help.

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        I just think his pitch count got high.

  • Mike Pop

    I’m worried.

    • Mike Pop

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

      But, I’m happy with it. Hah.

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

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

  • Matt-Pitt

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

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      really? wow.

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      Well, they are playing Cleveland.

      • Matt-Pitt

        Fair enough, fair enough.

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    Fuck YEAH!!!! Albie is my dude.

  • cjc

    nice job

  • Matt-Pitt

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

  • daveg

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

  • Will

    thank you

  • cjc

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

    • Mike Pop

      Let’s get to this guy.

      I don’t want A.J. to get the L today.

  • dkidd

    9 outs left. we’re winning this game

    • Mike Pop

      Hopefully Gardy leaves him in too long like he did Blackburn.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Getting the leadoff man on would be nice.

    • Matt-Pitt

      That works too.

  • Reggie C.

    Wang’s ready.

  • Mike Pop

    HE’S BACK!!!

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    There’s your lead of man.

  • cjc

    yes

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

    No fuckin’ doubter.

  • dkidd

    halfway there

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

    ZOMG why didn’t A-Rod bunt?

    • whozat

      I came here to say this.

      He’s so selfish, taking that RBI for himself.

  • Infamous

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

  • Charlie

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

    • whozat

      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 :-)

  • Will

    Not clutch.

  • putt

    another meaningless HR for ARod. Oh wait..

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      he really does suck…padding those stats.

  • Mike Pop

    But he used roids.

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

    Ya, Godzilla!

  • Matt-Pitt

    Awesomeness.

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    Here we go.

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

    I love baseball.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

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

  • BigBlueAL

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

    • Linnea

      I’d be pissed if I were him. Sigh. At least they did start hitting.

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

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

    • BigBlueAL

      He actually has supporters????

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        Yes. I support him.

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

          Me too. Think he’s doing a fine job under difficult circumstances. Last year as well.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Infamous

    Pinch run for Matsui?

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    I actually like that bunt.

  • Nady Nation

    Noooo

  • dkidd

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

  • Mike Pop

    The bunt…….

  • Charlie

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

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      it won’t be a walk of if they score a couple here.

  • zs190

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

  • Charlie

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

    • Charlie

      i take it back

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      because swish is slumping….now bow down to melk!

  • BigBlueAL

    Cano better be ready to pinch-hit.

  • Stryker

    what’s this obsession with bunting lately??

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

    Nice throw, jackass.

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      I laughed out loud. seriously.

  • Matt-Pitt

    I’ll take it.

  • BigBlueAL

    Still hated the bunt.

  • Mike Pop

    QUICK!

    Ice his knees.

  • dkidd

    awful awful throw

    game over

  • Tony

    Watching Matsui run made my knees hurt.

  • http://www.eporro.com Eric SanInocencio

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

  • Mark B

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

  • dre

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

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

    What a fucking play, wow.

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

      I swear, Punto has one ‘Holy shit’ play a year.

      • Linnea

        That was amazing! How’d he time his slide like that?

  • Stryker

    hot damn what a play!

  • Reggie C.

    umm…. wow

  • Charlie

    i would definitely PH for cash, not pena

  • dkidd

    pena got puntoed

  • Matt-Pitt

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

  • Mike Pop

    Lol @ the slide.

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

      Yeah, I thought it was unnecessary, but whatever.

      • Mike Pop

        Showing off and shit.

        I think he tipped his cap and pointed at the camera.

      • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

        That was nuts. I wouldn’t be surprised if he slipped and just turned it into a fancy play.

        • Mike Pop

          No way. Was in foul territory, he was looking to show off, haha.

          Telling the Yanks they should of upped their offer for him this offseason.

  • BigBlueAL

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

    • Shdwrptr

      Yeah….till the 9th

  • BigBlueAL

    Damon was even laughing at that throw from Span.

  • Charlie

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

    • dre

      clueless! i love that name for him!

  • Reggie C.

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

  • Mike Pop

    Hmmm…

  • Matt-Pitt

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

  • Nady Nation

    Fucking leadoff walks.

  • Charlie

    HOly shit, throw some friggin strikes

  • http://www.eporro.com Eric SanInocencio

    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.

    • Reggie C.

      Cervelli makes that throw TWICE in the time it took Cash to throw .

  • Matt-Pitt

    Bring in Cervilli man.

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

    Kevin Cash sucks.

  • BigBlueAL

    This is ridiculous.

  • Mike Pop

    Back in trouble.

    Damn leadoff walks.

  • Tony

    WE WANT FRANKIE

  • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

    Agh cash is terrible.

  • http://www.eporro.com Eric SanInocencio

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

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

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

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

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

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    wow…albie.

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

    Heads up play by Albie.

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

      Fielding fundamentals FTW.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Huge play. Huge.

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

    Fundamental Twins Baseball at its best.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Mike Pop

    Nice job by Albie there.

  • Shdwrptr

    Wow. Awesome play

  • Matt-Pitt

    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.

  • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

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

  • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

    Where is Cervelli?
    :(

  • Mike Pop

    WTF CASH, CATCH THAT!!!!!

  • dre

    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…

    • Charlie

      yea, so he shouldn’t be fuckin playing, at least frankie has SOME talent

      • Mike Pop

        Ya….. except for the fact that catchers need to rest.

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

        Jorge comes back next week. Till then, I think you’ll see lots of Cervelli.

  • Charlie

    kershaw no no thru 7

    • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

      TEHHH JINX!!14!!!!!1!

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

    Cash, stop failing.

    • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

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

  • Matt-Pitt

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

    • Matt-Pitt

      made*

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

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

  • Charlie

    shit we really need a GIDP

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      we needs 2 outs anyway we can, without giving up a run.

  • BigBlueAL

    Albie sucks.

  • Mike Pop

    Disgusting.

  • Tony

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

  • http://www.eporro.com Eric SanInocencio

    Walked Nick Punto. Wow.

  • Nady Nation

    NICK FUCKING PUNTO.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

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

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

    “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/

  • Infamous

    Seriously where are Melancon and Robertson???

    They can atleast throw some friggin strikes

    • http://www.eporro.com Eric SanInocencio

      Really?

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

      • Infamous

        Yea, thats not a small sample size or anything.

      • Charlie

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

      • Matt-Pitt

        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.

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

        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

          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.

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

            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.

        • http://www.eporro.com Eric SanInocencio

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

  • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

    Tomko, Seriously?

  • BigBlueAL

    Albie out, Tomko in. I hate this bullpen.

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    Tomko?

    • Mike Pop

      Crapshoot anyways right now.

  • zs190

    Brett Tomko comes in, yikes.

    • zs190

      I sure hope Bruney comes back soon so we can deal with this less.

  • dre

    tomko?? is aceves not available?

  • Brendan

    It looked like Albie was crying….

  • Charlie

    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

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    this could get hard to watch.

  • Charlie

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

  • dre

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

  • Matt-Pitt

    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

      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.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tADvb3yyhwM Slugger27

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

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

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

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      He had thrown a ton of pitches. I’m sure Joe was glad.

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    can we pay for some stikes?

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      Strikes

  • cjc

    Tomko is the best option really this pen is embarassing

    • Mike Pop

      The front office is embarrasing.

    • Stryker

      and what do you want the yankees to do about that when veras, edwar, and coke were all used in the last 2 days?

      • Stryker

        add aceves to that list as well.

        • cjc

          Aceves threw 1 inning yesterday I would think he’s available

      • cjc

        Even so exactly which one of them is a better option right now

        thats the point

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    tomko? 93 mph?

    • cjc

      everyone is 93 hell AJ’s curveball was 93 this gun is a joke

      • Mike Pop

        It’s embarrassing.

        • Tony

          Tomko actually was throwing 93. (sez MLB.com)

  • Matt-Pitt

  • BigBlueAL

    Cano better be leading off this inning.

    • Charlie

      it would be ridiculous if he didn’t

  • mustang

    nice job Tomko !!!

  • Charlie

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

    • Shdwrptr

      Trust Tomko? How could anyone trust him after that? He started both hitter off 2-0 with the bases loaded

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

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

  • daveg

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

    • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

      Yeah after that fucking managerial fail.

      • BigBlueAL

        What happened??

        • Mike Pop

          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

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

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

        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

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

  • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

    Who is up? Probably see Cano hit right?

    • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

      Never mind.

  • Matt-Pitt

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

  • http://www.myspace.com/rbisportsradio Joey H.

  • Mike Pop

    Calm down, Kay, jeez.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Infamous

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

  • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

    Bunt him over!!!

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

  • mustang

  • Shdwrptr

  • cjc

  • cjc

    Hitdeki time

  • Shdwrptr

    Here comes Matsui for Mojares

  • Matt-Pitt

    Alright, Matsui. Clear the bases.

  • BigBlueAL

    That didnt hit him!!

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

      Clipped him on the elbow as he was trying pull his body out of the way.

      • BigBlueAL

        Yeah I know I just wanted ARod to keep hitting.

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

    The ol’ unintentional intentional walk.

  • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

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

  • Shdwrptr

    A walk right now would be pretty sweet

  • Alex S

    walk that runner in!

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

    Come to Papa. . . .

  • Matt-Pitt

    I’d take another strike

  • dkidd

    his control is tomkoesque

  • Mike Pop

    That was a ball, Matsui!!!

    • Mike Pop

      2 balls.

  • southernyankeefan

    come on godzilla

  • BigBlueAL

    Looked like Ball 4 there.

  • cjc

    shit that was ball 4

  • southernyankeefan

    SHIT

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

    Futhermucker.

  • cjc

    and that was ball 5 awesome

  • Stryker

    THAT WAS BALL FUCKING FOUR

  • Alex S

    that was ball 4……another walkoff!?

  • BigBlueAL

    Fucking horrible. Swung at Ball 4 twice.

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      Baseball is so easy.

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

        From the couch, yes.

        • BigBlueAL

          Nah man I assume he was taking a shot at me for ripping Matsui in that at-bat, and he is right but shit up in the count 3-0 that was a pretty awful way to end that at-bat.

      • BigBlueAL

        When you go ahead in the count 3-0 its alot easier.

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

    Blergh.

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    Fuck.

  • dkidd

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

  • Matt-Pitt

    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.

  • Shdwrptr

    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

  • Conan the Barack O’Brian

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

  • Jake H

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

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

    Ooof. Just saw Burnett’s line for today

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

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

      Also, 3 WP

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

        Yeah, well next time maybe the catcher will block them.

    • Conan the Barack O’Brian

      WP 3

  • Matt-Pitt

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

    • Matt-Pitt

      Like that.

  • daveg

    Mo’s coming in at 89-90 MPH

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      Gameday has him at 90-93

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

        Yeah, the YES gun has been lower all year.

    • Shdwrptr

      It was 91-92 on Morneau

      • daveg

        I think I panicked after the first two pitches – small sample size

    • Matt-Pitt

      TBS has had him around 88-92, living around 91 though.

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

    THA CUTTA

  • cjc

    sorry Justin the ump doesn’t speak canadian

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

    Cervelli in for Defense, very nice.

  • Tony

    Another mystery strike zone.

    • Shdwrptr

      Yup. Where was the first pitch of that at bat?

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Mike Pop

    Swisher/Melky walk off.

  • Matt-Pitt

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