Can a brother get another walk-off?
Albie makes me nervous
Well this could get ugly.
cross your fingers
would rather girardi stuck with burnett
he had nothing left
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.
Thank you. seriously.
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.
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.
I just think his pitch count got high.
Well, I don’t see how Kubel can take that pitch.
But, I’m happy with it. Hah.
Albie don’t scare me. I think he’s going to be very good as the year goes on.
Shows how much we know. Sonnanstine just hit an rbi double, hah.
Well, they are playing Cleveland.
Fair enough, fair enough.
Fuck YEAH!!!! Albie is my dude.
Big strike out. Come on offense, wake up a little here.
Here’s to hoping that this nice, long inning tightened up Slowey’s arm.
maybe the long inning hurts Slowey a bit (I know I’m grasping at straws here)
Let’s get to this guy.
I don’t want A.J. to get the L today.
9 outs left. we’re winning this game
Hopefully Gardy leaves him in too long like he did Blackburn.
Getting the leadoff man on would be nice.
That works too.
There’s your lead of man.
No fuckin’ doubter.
ZOMG why didn’t A-Rod bunt?
I came here to say this.
He’s so selfish, taking that RBI for himself.
But he should be bunting1!!!!11 How selfish
wtf is up with the bj’s? when exactly are they gonna fall back down to eart?
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
another meaningless HR for ARod. Oh wait..
he really does suck…padding those stats.
But he used roids.
It takes away a run. Yanks are actually down 2 to -1 right now.
Here we go.
I love baseball.
There we go. Now hopefully Swish can get back on track.
AJ must be like now we start hitting!!!!
I’d be pissed if I were him. Sigh. At least they did start hitting.
If Girardi called for that, he just angered one of his most loyal supporters.
He actually has supporters????
Yes. I support him.
Me too. Think he’s doing a fine job under difficult circumstances. Last year as well.
STOP BUNTING!!!!!!!! I hate this shit!!!!!!!!
Pinch run for Matsui?
I actually like that bunt.
never thought i’d say this: i like that bunt
wonder when the last time a team had 3 walk offs in a row was..
it won’t be a walk of if they score a couple here.
We have Cano available for PH today, who do you PH him for? Pena or Cash?
why would you bunt him there? Sorry, but i don’t quite trust melky enough for that
i take it back
because swish is slumping….now bow down to melk!
Cano better be ready to pinch-hit.
what’s this obsession with bunting lately??
Nice throw, jackass.
I laughed out loud. seriously.
I’ll take it.
Still hated the bunt.
Ice his knees.
awful awful throw
Watching Matsui run made my knees hurt.
What a horrible throw Denard Span. That should have been close. Matsui looked like he was dying trying to get down the line.
Way to go, Melky….way to come through again in the clutch!
what a bad throw!!
godzilla got lucky! he would’ve been out with those bum knees! lol
What a fucking play, wow.
I swear, Punto has one ‘Holy shit’ play a year.
That was amazing! How’d he time his slide like that?
hot damn what a play!
i would definitely PH for cash, not pena
pena got puntoed
WOW… I tip my cap to that play. That was amazing to see.
Lol @ the slide.
Yeah, I thought it was unnecessary, but whatever.
Showing off and shit.
I think he tipped his cap and pointed at the camera.
That was nuts. I wouldn’t be surprised if he slipped and just turned it into a fancy play.
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.
Well at least Mauer and Mourneau arent up for a while.
Yeah….till the 9th
Damon was even laughing at that throw from Span.
im starting to trust albie a little more, but i will still kill myself if clueless puts veras in here
clueless! i love that name for him!
Joe G. should’ve brought in Cervelli for Cash now that AJ is out.
Throw strikes!! Come on man. We just tied the game and you do this. Challenge them.
Fucking leadoff walks.
HOly shit, throw some friggin strikes
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.
Cervelli makes that throw TWICE in the time it took Cash to throw .
Bring in Cervilli man.
Kevin Cash sucks.
This is ridiculous.
Back in trouble.
Damn leadoff walks.
WE WANT FRANKIE
Agh cash is terrible.
Keep it coming Cash. You hit .200, you at least have to play decent defense.
Kevin Cash is my new Cody Ransom – I literally don’t like them.
Cash is just bad…he’s making this game harder to win.
Heads up play by Albie.
Fielding fundamentals FTW.
Huge play. Huge.
Fundamental Twins Baseball at its best.
Cano better be leading off the bottom of the 8th. Nice play Albie.
Nice job by Albie there.
Wow. Awesome play
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.
And you get DJ’s crotch in your face. HA!
Where is Cervelli?
WTF CASH, CATCH THAT!!!!!
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…
yea, so he shouldn’t be fuckin playing, at least frankie has SOME talent
Ya….. except for the fact that catchers need to rest.
Jorge comes back next week. Till then, I think you’ll see lots of Cervelli.
kershaw no no thru 7
Cash, stop failing.
Yeah. He’s a severe failure. Wasn’t he Wake’s catcher last year? Should be coming up with those balls in the dirt.
Punto, you make an amazing play… Now ground into a DP.
If we lose. I could pin the lose on Cash…I’m not serious, but it sure seems that way.
shit we really need a GIDP
we needs 2 outs anyway we can, without giving up a run.
Mo is pissed. Alphabet is going to get a stern talking to.
Walked Nick Punto. Wow.
NICK FUCKING PUNTO.
Can you believe that? Another walk to Punto. Unbelievable.
“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.”
Seriously where are Melancon and Robertson???
They can atleast throw some friggin strikes
Melancon- 5 BB in 3.1 innings
Robertson – 4 BB in 4 innings
Yea, thats not a small sample size or anything.
yea, that’s a great sample size. Completely agree with Infamous here.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Albie out, Tomko in. I hate this bullpen.
Crapshoot anyways right now.
Brett Tomko comes in, yikes.
I sure hope Bruney comes back soon so we can deal with this less.
tomko?? is aceves not available?
It looked like Albie was crying….
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
this could get hard to watch.
OH MY GOD. NOT BRETT FUCKING TOMKO!!!!!!!!!!!!1
he should be crying he just walked someobody hitting under .200
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.
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.
ironic that us yankees fans bitch and whine about RISP… the twins have 15 baserunners and TWO runs…. YIKES
Cody Ross leads off the bottom of the eight with a double to break up Clayton Kershaw’s no-no.
He had thrown a ton of pitches. I’m sure Joe was glad.
can we pay for some stikes?
Tomko is the best option really this pen is embarassing
The front office is embarrasing.
and what do you want the yankees to do about that when veras, edwar, and coke were all used in the last 2 days?
add aceves to that list as well.
Aceves threw 1 inning yesterday I would think he’s available
Even so exactly which one of them is a better option right now
thats the point
tomko? 93 mph?
everyone is 93 hell AJ’s curveball was 93 this gun is a joke
Tomko actually was throwing 93. (sez MLB.com)
That’s why you’re the man.
WOW what a play by Tex!!!!
That’s a fucking play!!!
Tex is great
What a play by Tex.
Giambi makes that play look easy.
Wow, no way the Giambino makes that play.
tex is the freakin man!!
he was lying down when he threw that strike to home.
Nice belly flop throw from Mark Teixiera.
Come on, Tomko. You gotta throw strikes.
Yessss… Alright offense, take the lead.
Brett fuc*ing Tomko.
hey Cash made a play how can we lose now
Scary question if there is no Mo who closes?
Oh there WILL be mo.
Cano better be leading off this inning.
it would be ridiculous if he didn’t
nice job Tomko !!!
we got lucky there,but don’t trust tomko because of this
Trust Tomko? How could anyone trust him after that? He started both hitter off 2-0 with the bases loaded
. . . . . . . (facepalm).
I just yelled so loud that I sent the dog running.
My voice is still shot from A-Rod’s home run yesterday.
Alright, we got Cano, Damon and Jeter coming up; let’s get this over with and somehow get Mauer and Morneau in the ninth.
Sonnanstine has a hit and an RBI! We could use a guy like that in the middle of our lineup
Yeah after that fucking managerial fail.
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.
WTF??? How does he have an at-bat????
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.
WOW. I remember a game in Cleveland a while back that happened too. Dont remember if Manuel was the manager or Hargrove.
Who is up? Probably see Cano hit right?
Tough break for Cano. Ripped it, just right at him.
Wow what a pitch to loose your no no on.
Brett Tomko – True Yankee.
Calm down, Kay, jeez.
another walk off by A-Rod called it
I rather have them get some runs here.
Cone’s voice makes me sick. I want Leiter!
Mo warming up!!
How many hits does Jeter have like that?
Honestly, Who cares? A hit is a hit.
Cause it means you decline faster
Let’s go teix.
Here we go
Teix, come on man! Do it again!
nice piece of hitting Damon
Give Tomko the win!!!
That makes me want to throw up
That was the plan.
come on text lets get a basehit.
Gardenhire really has no faith in his bullpen huh. Figured Crain would come in now.
Man, I love these kinda games, but I hate them at the same time.
Bunt him over!!!
Wow. Just missed that one.
fuck the first ball hit to right field that doesn’t make the seats
les go a-lex
He just missed it… Come on A-Roddd
Okay, Teix. I’ll take it.
a nice single would be money here
i’d take a passed ball.
They’re pitching around him
awwwwwwwwwwwwww that was your pitch damn it
Here comes Matsui for Mojares
Alright, Matsui. Clear the bases.
That didnt hit him!!
Clipped him on the elbow as he was trying pull his body out of the way.
Yeah I know I just wanted ARod to keep hitting.
The ol’ unintentional intentional walk.
Do they make a double-switch to keep Cano in the game? Makes sense to me.
A walk right now would be pretty sweet
walk that runner in!
Come to Papa. . . .
I’d take another strike
his control is tomkoesque
That was a ball, Matsui!!!
come on godzilla
Looked like Ball 4 there.
shit that was ball 4
and that was ball 5 awesome
THAT WAS BALL FUCKING FOUR
that was ball 4……another walkoff!?
Fucking horrible. Swung at Ball 4 twice.
Baseball is so easy.
From the couch, yes.
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.
When you go ahead in the count 3-0 its alot easier.
hideki was required to strike out. new team policy is walk-off wins only
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.
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
eh. wouldn’t have been a walk-off. not interested !)
Great chance to win it there. Tex just missed that long fly ball.
Ooof. Just saw Burnett’s line for today
IP 6.2 H 6 R 2 ER 2 SO 7 BB 6
Also, 3 WP
Yeah, well next time maybe the catcher will block them.
Thought that caught too much of the plate 0-2… Would’ve tried and pushed the envelope.
Mo’s coming in at 89-90 MPH
Gameday has him at 90-93
Yeah, the YES gun has been lower all year.
It was 91-92 on Morneau
I think I panicked after the first two pitches – small sample size
TBS has had him around 88-92, living around 91 though.
sorry Justin the ump doesn’t speak canadian
Cervelli in for Defense, very nice.
Another mystery strike zone.
Yup. Where was the first pitch of that at bat?
Damn this is Mo’s 3rd outing in 4 days including a 2-inning stint yesterday.
Swisher/Melky walk off.
Lets win this man the ball game… Another Melky walkoff?
