              The beginning is very easy, then it can get tough after midterms, at least for me it did.

              I’m a bum when it comes to classes like that though, don’t put in enough effort.

              Make sure you understand it though, doesn’t help you’re on game threads whil in classs ;)

    I thought the Yanks weren’t allowed to play defense?

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

      No, its just that some people look at this team and only see 4 aging players.

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

        Yeah, it’s like they don’t realize that not only is JD Drew 33, but Kevin Youkilis is frickin’ older than Mark Teixeira when they are comparing the ages of the respective teams of those players.

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

        Easy there, champ. It’s not like he said, “How good are we right now?”

    wtf Steve Phillips gets his own BBTN commercial?

    Nobody wants to be in the same commercial as Steve Phillips.

  • Axl

    On Gameday it says “Denard Span grounds out ‘softly’ to Ramiro Pena”. How good could it have been then? lol

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      High chopper, Pena barehanded, got Span by half a step.

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

      The fact that it was softly hit should tell you that it took a better-than-average play to get a guy with Denard Span’s speed.

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

    Chris Berman comparing Cervelli to John Belushi. Heh.

  • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

    Let’s tack some on here.

  • Stephen

    UGGGGH Chris Berman and Orel Hersheiser are HORRIBLE. Why is Berman calling ANY games?

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

      Have you considered the Miller/Morgan/Phillips three-headed monster alternative? This is mostly harmless.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        Morgan occasionally says something halfway intelligent, Berman adds absolutely nothing to the analysis of any game.

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

          Morgan is good when he takes you inside the game. Puts you in the shoes of the hitter/fielder and shows you the little things that go on at the big league level.

          But if you want him to be up on your team and know what he’s talking about, that’s just not happening. That doesn;t bother me though. I dont expect national guys to know my team like I do. They can’t be expected to watch every team every day, so I don’t let those off base statements he makes bother me. Just call a good game and don’t intrude too much like McCarver and I’ll be happy.

          I actually take the OPPOSITE approach. When any national broadcaster actually gets some detail about my team RIGHT, I consider it to be gravy.

      • Stephen

        Yea, he’s terrible and thinks he’s hilarious and is excruciating to listen to.

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

    Dude, I thought Cervelli was a mendoza line hitter in AA?

  • pat

    HAHAHAHA the sawx aren’t even mentioned in the Toyota text poll.

  • John

    How many Web-gems does Pena have? How many should he have?

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

    If Ron Washington had a brain, then it should be Josh Hamilton and Ian Kinsler for that Rangers option.

  • Ivan

    Best 3 and 4 hitters in the AL has to be Tex and A-Rod no?

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

    Thanks, Cap’n.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Oh, Captain.

  • Dirt

    Should be hitting 9th to avoid those DPs

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

    Damnit Jeter

    (this is why he’s batting lead off btw, because he likes to do that)

  • Ivan

    Jeter decided it was too long for him not to hit in a DP.

    • A.D.

      The 9 hole hitter had been an automatic out, so Jeter hasn’t had his normal opportunities.

  • Drew

    Poor Giambino… hittin .204

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

      Time for a new mustache.

      • Drew

        ..or golden nut sombrero.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    What Maddon did yesterday is not nearly as bad as allowing Howell to hit in the WS.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    I think Pena might be on this team for a long time. The Yankees have not had a glove like that off the bench in a while. With an aging left side of the infield, he is a good fit.

    • Mike Pop

      Noooooo!

      This team should have Jose Reyes on the bench.

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

        THE YANKEES HAD ALL-WORLD HALL OF FAME ALL-STARS ON THE BENCH BUT CASHMAN SUCKS AND IS TERRIBLE AND CAN’T EVEN SIGN A SINGLE ALL-STAR TO SIT ON THE BENCH LIKE THE GOOD OLD DAYS, NO STEROIDS WERE INVOLVED LEAVE THE MEMORIES ALONE

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

      I L-O-V-E Cervelli as the backup catcher. The prevailing thought on Frankie is that the glove is there, the bat isn’t. That’s fine for a MLB backup.

      Plus he adds roster flexibility because of his speed at his position, which is rare. Think about it, you could pinch run him for Posada late in games AND then put him in for defensive purposes. No burning two bench players late in games, no need for a 3rd catcher. That’s a nice little edge for a manager to have.

      • A.D.

        Cervelli has definitely done about all he can to win the back-up spot for next year.

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

    LOL Orel Hershiser is not impressed by Berman’s humor.

        Well, he did get $80M. Hard to turn that down.

  • A.D.

    I would have thought go for DP, but I get the safe play.

    • Mike Pop

      All he carees about is his ERA. Fucking selfish Yankees.

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

    Uh, why not go for two? Instinct took over?

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    They are tattooing Andy. 9 hits in 4.2 so far. Hopefully he can limit the damage.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Pitching to the score!

    • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

      The last time Andy gave up less hits than IP was 2005 w/ HOU. I think he’s only done that 3 times in his career. Andy gives up hits, but he gives you innings, throws strikes, works fast, gets out of jams… all that stuff.

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

        ?

        He allowed fewer hits than IP in his first two starts this year, and 11 times last year.

        • pat

          I think he means on a yearly basis.

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

            Oh, duh. That makes sense.

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

    OK, we kinda need some insurance runs, I’m not liking Pettitte’s luck past the sixth inning.

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

      Agreed. I don’t think Mo’s available tonight, and even if he is, it would be nice to give the guy a day off. He’s pitched in what, 5 of the last 6?

  • Drew

    Andy only 80 pitches. I don’t know if I’m happy he’s back for next inning or not. He’s awfully scary today.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    You think we see some people pitch for their jobs tonight with Bruney coming back?

    • Drew

      I doubt it. Who are you talking about? Edwar? We obviously don’t want to release/dump Veras, rightfully so btw.

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

        I think they’ll take the safest route and send down somebody with options, like Alby.

        But if they’re going to DFA someone, my guess is Veras. And I won’t miss him one bit, golden arm or not.

        • Drew

          Hey, I hate Veras, it just sucks we can’t send him down. I do agree with you though.

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

            You could make the argument that the MLB team is better off with Alby than it is with Veras right now. But to lose a player completely opens you up to getting caught with your pants down if someone gets hurt. So I think they’ll demote someone w/options, either Alby or Edwar.

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

              Albaladejo has a 0.00 ERA this month and has allowed just one inherited runner to score. Why is there talk of sending him down?

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

                Just looking at players with options and ways to not lose Veras. I think Tomko has to be on the MLB roster after May or we lose him as well. Aceves is too valuable to send down.

                Who’s your suggestion, Edwar? I can live w/that.

              • Drew

                Trying to make room for Brune.

      • whozat

        Rightfully? Really? Would it be that hard to find another guy who throws hard but can’t throw strikes? Kevin Whelan can do that.

        • Drew

          Nah, like I told the artist, I hate Veras, but 94-95 with a sick slider is hard to come by. He’s Bruney before he came to NY. We can only hope it clicks for him like it did for Bruney. Releasing him is too risky.

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

            Bingo. Bruney was a horrendous walk machine when he got here, too. Its tough to give up on arms like that.

          • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

            He’s much older than Bruney was. 5 years is a huge age gap, especially when talking about a guy who has had one good half season.

            • Drew

              Wait, Veras is what, 27? Bruney wasn’t 22 when he came here bro.

              • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

                Veras is in his age 28 season. Bruney came here in his age 24. I remembered that incorrectly, sorry. Off by one year. The point still holds.

  • handtius

    Better 3, 4:

    Tex, A-lex

    or

    Mauer, Morneau

    (when fully healthy)

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Tex and Alex.

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

        I mean please, is this even a question?

        Morneau’s a terrific player, and so is Mauer. But Mauer hasn’t hit for much pop before this year. Tex has, and Alex is the best player of the 4 of them.

        • handtius

          Relax man. It’s just a question? They are 2 great players. Sorry to insult you, your majesty.

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

            You’re WAYYY too sensitive, bro.

            • handtius

              You’re the one who felt it necessary to make a simple question a big deal. “is this a question?” Obviously, yes, it was a question. better?

    • Drew

      Best player in the game plus a guaranteed 30hr year. Easy.

      • handtius

        I agree. just curious if anyone thought differently. They do look like a good back to back.

        • Drew

          More than good. However, any combination of a guy like Al or Pujols and a solid 400obp and 30 hr guy will always win out.

          • handtius

            Could you image, Pujols and Alex back to back…that would be uncomprehending.

            • Drew

              lol, to be honest, no. Even Manny and Al.

      The yankees wouldnt play in Montreal all that often.

    What a crap run.

    I would like some insurance runs just to feel a little safer.

    Too greedy?

    • Drew

      Nah.

  • Ed

    That was an odd looking jump. Really too bad the pick off didn’t work. Inching back in, we need some runs.

    Off topic, but I thought of you guys this past weekend. I was working at an NCAA Softball Regional, and in a three-game series there must have been about 10 sac bunts between the two teams.

    In softball, runs are at such a premium, its automatic. You get on, next one bunts, no matter the position in the lineup or anything.

    Three hole, four hole hitter, you are laying it down. I kept thinking to myself, “Man, the RAB crowd would have a heart attack here. They are giving away outs left and right!”

    who pitches the 7th?

    • Will

      Pettite, he only threw 90

          just walk them both

    Looks like me playing MLB The Show 09. Leaving LOBs everywhere.

    With the twins scoring in the top of that inning, putting one on the board in the bottom would have been huge. Too bad.

  • JGS

    wow, Jeter and Damon both got hosed there

  • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

    The Yanks are going to blow this game. They took the night off after the first inning and are letting the bullpen scrubs mow them down.

    Interesting zone, Hirschbeck. Why be confined by the width of the plate?

  • Will (the other one)

    ugh

  • Pasqua

    Hirschbeck is in love with his punch-out call. He isn’t even watching the pitches all the way to the glove.

    • Ed

      He is like Leslie Nielson in the Naked Gun.

        That’s my line! I was saving it for when Bruney gets back.

    • Pasqua

      The funny thing is, this is the first year that Questech (or whatver it’s called now) is in every ballpark. Doesn’t seem to be working very well. No sense of a zone from anybody. I don’t expect all zones to be the same, but at least keep it consistent during a single game

      • Drew

        Or, if it hits the paint, call a fucking ball!!!

      • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

        Well all zones should be as close to similar as possible, i mean its written into the rule book what the zone is. no need for interpretation.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    I can has a standardized, well-enforced strike zone?

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      More likely to get that than an out from Morneau in this series.

    If he’s signed till 2013, then lets just buy the Twins and be done with it.

      tomorrow, nvm.

      He had a gut check last inning.

      maybe joe wants to keep the comeback walk off streak alive….

    • Yankee1010

      Girardi bet on the Twins tonight.

      • Jay

        lmao….here we go

  • Yankee1010

    Pettitte right now is thinking, Jesus, you’re going to bring in Veras? Joe, why don’t I just put the ball on a tee while I walk off the mound?

    Joe would respond with, actually, Andy, Jose will probably walk the first guy and THEN give up the bomb.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      IETC.

    • Yankee1010

      He’s well on his way …

      God, I hate Veras.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    This really wasn’t a great start by Andy; definitely doesn’t warrant the standing o.

  • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

    Veras = booze time

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    That’s just one out short of a good outing there.

  • RunnerS122

    Well, Veras is needed to give up the lead so the new policy of walk-off only can be used.

  • V

    Ugh.

  • yankees=warriors

    Veras is up every day (though he didn’t come in yesterday).
    Can’t understand Girardi’s obsession with him!

  • ShawnT

    Hey if Veras blows it maybe we got another shot at a walk off

  • V

    Ugh, Kenny? Allowing 3 baserunners and getting an out, and letting the next guy clean up your mess is TECHNICALLY a scoreless appearance… but…

    • yankees=warriors

      Exactly my thoughts…

  • yankees=warriors

    Great, another walk I guess.

  • dkidd

    please throw strikes. please

    • dkidd

      pretty please with chicas on top?

    TEH AWESOMENESS

  • Drew

    Veras fucking sucks

  • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

    Shocker.

  • Yankee1010

    Did Veras walk the 1st guy he faced? There’s no way he did that, right? Not Veras. He never does that.

  • Infamous

    DFA him please

  • Will

    I seriously hate veras with a passion.

  • V

    If I were the manager, and a reliever walked the first guy he faced, I’d immediately pull him, and make him run a lap around the field to the crowd’s boos.

    • Drew

      Girardi’s tried something like that but 90% of RAB said he overmanaged.

  • Drew

    What the fuck is Eiland going to say to him. Veras will say fuck you Gringo.

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

    Okay, we get that you don’t like Veras, but does everyone really need to turn into a whiny little bitch whenever he comes into a game? It’s getting old.

    • Jersey

      Thank you.

    • Drew

      Sorry dude, I don’t like losing games. I have 0 confidence in Veras. Maybe it’s my bad, but I’m no pessimist.

    • Yankee1010

      If he threw strikes, he would go a long way to solving the problem. And he’s not going to do it.

      • Yankee1010

        Plus, Girardi has an irrational love affair with Veras. I don’t think there is anything wrong with hating Veras and it’s only made worse by Girardi going to him in way too many spots where it’s bound to blow up.

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

      Going to school in Michigan, I don’t get to watch Yankees games on TV often.

      So when I do, and I see Veras come in and promptly serve up 5-pitch walk to load the bases isn’t the most soothing experience.

    • V

      Yes. We do. Sorry.

    • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

      I cry like a woman.

    • http://forums.projectcovo.com/images/smilies/e6omir.gif OmgZombies

      I enjoy it actually. Its quite funny…

    • Drew

      BTW, did you think he wouldn’t walk someone? Did you think he’d get the job done? Hoping and expecting are two different things.

      • Yankee1010

        Not even his mother thought he would get the job done. And Gomez swinging at the 1st pitch after a 5 pitch walk certainly made it easier.

  • yankees=warriors

    Veras lives to see another day.

  • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

    Does Veras remind anyone of another fine fellow named Kyle Farnsworth?

    • Pasqua

      Just without the natural talent.

    • Will

      Ehh, Farnsworth didnt look like his arm was going to fall of everytime he threw.

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

      Farnsworth could throw strikes.

    Not for nothing, but Carlos Gomez is one stupid fuck. Swinging at the first pitch after a five-pitch walk? Really, asshole?

    • Lorenzo

      Idk how the Mets got away with that trade for Johan. It’s mind boggling

      • V

        Agreed. The Twins got nothing for him.

    • dkidd

      he is a serious asshole

  • BigBlueAL

    Gomez should be benched for swinging at the 1st pitch like that. But hey I aint complaining!!

  • Will (the other one)

    Hell YES. That’ll do.

  • Pasqua

    I guess that was a “show me what you’re made of” call by Girardi. That’s all I can figure. If that’s the case, while I’m glad Veras got out of it, I can’t help but hope that Joe doesn’t take too much out of it. The last thing we need is growing confidence in Veras by the mgr.

    Anybody have a Blackberry Storm? Or Verizon cell phone service?

    I’m thinking of getting one. Actually, two. Verizon is running a 2-1 deal selling the phone(s) for $199 with a 2 year plan. I’m using a gazillion year old Blackberry, so anything is an upgrade for me. Mainly want it for phone calls, check e-mail and web browsing.

    Swish is getting no love right now. I’m encouraged though b/c he seems to be swinging better and making better contact…instead of just whiffing.
