Game 38 Spillover Thread II

By

How about some more tack on runs?

Categories : Game Threads
  • pat

    Oh come on, they’re doing the drive of the game in the 7th?

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

    Yo, fuck Trumbull.

  • Drew

    lol. So who’s hoping to see Veras again next inning! C’mon Mike.

  • Lorenzo

    I think they give out game awards way too early. Shouldn’t they give them out after the game?

    • Ed

      Gotta give em out when people are still watching I guess.

    • Zack

      Does it really matter?

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

    “Melky Cabrera” and “.320″ are not something you expect to see in the same sentence.

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

      maybe with “OBP”, or “wOBA”.

    • Drew

      I do! ;)

    • thurdonpaul

      ssshhhhh, dont wake melky up

  • Ed

    Last year melkey swings at that.

    • Ed

      Oh well.

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

    Narsty changeup.

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

    That was a pretty sick changeup to K Melky.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    I have to say that 4 weeks ago, Melky would have struck out on that high ball 3. I know he struck out anyhow, but his approach is much better.

    • Yankee1010

      Yep, he’s been having much better at-bats all year. That’s what is making me believe that he’ll actually be able to stay pretty damn valuable.

  • dkidd

    last year, melky would have struck out 1 pitch sooner

  • Drew

    I’m starting to see less negativity towards the Melkster on this blog. Me likes.

    • thurdonpaul

      me too, i like melky,lets go melk man

  • MattG

    I am really disappointed to have missed out on the Sterling bashing today. I was just commenting on this when, after Rodriguez ended the game over the weekend with a home run, Sterling worked in 4 or 5 catch phrases in a row, while totally disregarding everything on the field. Rodriguez did not smile into the dugout, or launch his helmet into the air, or get greeted by Swisher 10 feet before home plate. There was no celebration, no pie in the face.

    There was an A-bomb from A-rod. Yankees win. Theeeeeee Yankees win.

    I threw up. Iiiiiiiii threw up.

  • Drew

    E-Ram time.

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

    So, question, should this score hold (I know it’s a gamble getting through this inning), does Mo pitch the 9th?

    • manimal

      Albie could do it. If he gives up a run then get Mo warming up.

  • BigBlueAL

    Jesus Christ 17 hits and 14 walks in 16 innings. Ouch.

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

      5 homers too.

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

    Edwar goes down when Bruney’s back since he still has an option, right?

    • A.D.

      We can only hope

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

      Are the Yankees actually going to do that, or is that just the consensus here on RAB?

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

        I would assume that’s what they’re going to do.

        And, if it’s the consensus @ RAB, it’s going to happen. After all, the Swisher trade went down and the Jeter/Damon flip went down.

  • manimal

    Lanky Edwar Ramirez

  • dkidd

    we’ve been pitching nick punto like he’s babe ruth

  • e mills

    Coke in the 9th? Have to be I would guess unless there’s a jam in this inning

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

      Definitely for the lefties.

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

    Man I miss having a bullpen. Seven runs should be enough to win you a game no matter what.

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

      Well, in fairness, Pettitte allowed those four runs.

    • V

      It’d be nice to have a bullpen, but Andy wasn’t good today, no matter how someone slices it.

    • Zack

      that doesnt make sense.

      you score 7 runs, your starter gives up 4 runs but you should win no matter what?

  • yankees=warriors

    Why is he so hard to put away?

    • A.D.

      Grit, guts, and the Twins way.

    • pat

      thats what she said.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Edwar scares me more than Veras. Veras has no idea where it is going, but that makes it difficult on hitters as well. When he stinks, I feel like it moves slowly enough for the Yanks to get him out of there. Edwar, on the other hand, has hitters just sitting on his stuff. If they are wrong, he K’s them, but if they are right, things get ugly in a hurry.

    • A.D.

      Veras’s problem is walks, Edwars is walks, and having a very hittable fastball.

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

      That was prescient.

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        Eh, saying Edwar is not very good is far from prescient.

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

        Not really. Not when you’ve seen it happen a zillion times already. Less “prescient” and more “Past is prologue”

    • Drew

      I’m more scared of Veras, but I know what you mean.

  • Tony

    These announcers are fatigued. Call to the bullpen.

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

    Heh, I love Keith Law:

    Hearing that Jason Kendall has 2000 career hits sort of puts that milestone in perspective, doesn’t it? As in, “It’s not that special.”

    • Zack

      and jamie moyer has 250 wins

  • V

    Wow. He golfed that.

    And he’s not very good.

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

    Fuck. This. Bullpen.

  • NJY

    coors field east

  • BigBlueAL

    You know you suck when you give up a HR to Denard Span.

  • Ivan

    That was a yankee stadium homerun folks.

    • Drew

      I dunno dude he got it pretty good. I thought it was gone off the bat.

      • Ivan

        That’s just a deep flyball in alot of stadiums.

  • yankees=warriors

    There goes Tex’s insurance run.

  • pat

    Ugh, that was like a chip shot.

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

    Make that 6 HRs.

    Denard Span? I mean, please.

  • dkidd

    help me obi wan bruney, you’re my only hope

    • pat

      hahah, you’re a very underrated commenter here dkidd +1

      • andrew

        one might say he has ridiculous upside…

        • pat

          Don’t say his name three times or he will appear …..

  • handtius

    huh?

  • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

    7-5 and M & M boys still coming to bat…getting that queasy feeling again. Damn, these Twins are annoying.

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

    I really don’t want Rivera to be in this game.

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

      You trust anyone else with a two run lead?

  • Yankee1010

    Veras and Edwar bring balls and HRs to the party. Lots of fun.

  • A.D.

    Where are the glasses for Edwar???

  • V

    Ugh, Swisher didn’t play that well. He wouldn’t have caught it anyway, but he’s not looking good in RF lately.

  • E-ROC

    Meh, good hitting by Spann. That ball was way down and he golfed it just barely over the fence.

    • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

      Bandbox

    • V

      Agreed.

  • Dave

    I think id prefer to not see morneau against edwar.

  • Dorian

    Uh Oh have a Coke and a frown

  • Ed

    This is a big out. Break up M+M for the 9th.

  • Tony

    Guys…

    The bullpen has surrendered one run, and Bruney wouldn’t be pitching right now.

    Chillax.

  • BigBlueAL

    They really shouldnt use Mo tonight. Pitched 1 inning Thurs, 2 innings Saturday plus another inning yesterday.

    • Zack

      Who do you suggest ‘save’ this game?

      • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

        Swisher. Plus, he’s hitting like a pitcher, too.

      • handtius

        Coke, albie, Aceves

  • Drew

    I hear Boomer and Orel are going at it. Anyone privy to this?

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

      Oh yeah. Orel is completely no-selling Boomer’s wordplay.

      They also had a big “agree to disagree” moment over likely future 300-game winners.

      You could cut the lack of chemistry with a knife.

      • Drew

        hehe. My buddy told me about it, I have yes though..

  • V

    Girardi’s letting Edwar pitch to Mauer?

    Phil Coke WHO?

    • Zack

      Coke gave up HRs to both Mauer and Morneau, isnt Edwar’s strength against lefties?

    • Zack

      Coke gave up HRs to both Mauer and Morneau, isnt Edwar’s strength against lefties?

  • BigBlueAL

    Edwar is still pitching to Mauer because……..

  • A.D.

    THROW STRIKES.

  • Will

    DO NOT WALK HIM

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      Oh, do *NOT* walk him…. ohhhhhhhhh

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

        Was that your Andrew Dice Clay impression?

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

    That was quite possibly the worst thing that could happen.

    • A.D.

      Well at least no HR or XBH

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

      No, there were at least three things that could have happened that would have been far, far worse.

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      Really? A HR wouldn’t be worse?

  • pat

    Justin Morneau, killer of dreams.

  • Will

    motherfucker.

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

    Dear Edwar:

    Enjoy scenic Scranton, PA.

    • Drew

      Isn’t he out of options? I may be wrong.

      • BigBlueAL

        No. Veras is out of options not Edwar.

        • Drew

          true, ed has got to be close to 3 years of MLB service. Isn’t that the limit?

      • Yankee1010

        Nope. Veras is out of options and Edwar isn’t. I’m sure that’s going to be part of the equation when Edwar is in Scranton tomorrow.

  • BigBlueAL

    Edwar, pack your bags for Scranton.

    • Ivan

      Edwar is betta than this trust me.

      • andrew

        That doesn’t mean he isn’t going to Scranton.

  • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

    Another gutless outing from Ramirez.

  • V

    A batter too late.

  • Dave

    Wow. Well the odds are against Morneau 5 for 5 right? law of averages, right?

    • A.D.

      He’s due for an out

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Not really how it works, but I’ll buy into it for now.

    • Lorenzo

      haha .. i hope your right. Coke just needs to make sure he doesnt leave the ball over the plate like he did last time.

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

      He doesn’t have to go 5 for 5, he just needs to go 1 for 1 now.

      • V

        And 60% of the time, he makes an out. That was in that 60%

  • E-ROC

    What was Girardi waiting for?

  • yankees=warriors

    This is not especially promising.
    I trust Coke in any other spot, but Morneau has homered off him the 2 times he’s faced him.

    • handtius

      can’t do it everytime.

  • Ivan

    By the way guys, I got fired friday. It was a shitty job and the boss was an absollute bitch but still, when ya get fired that shit hurts.

    • E-ROC

      Where were you working?

      • Ivan

        At an after school program. Me and the boss weren’t the best of friends to say the least.

    • pat

      Eh don’t worry about it dude, I got let go from my job back in March. It’s the cool thing to do nowadays.

  • Yankee1010

    Does Edwar stop and pick up his stuff before heading to the Scranton shuttle?

    I’m not sure who is pitching worse now, Edwar or Veras, but Edwar will certainly be heading down because of the option.

  • D-Roc

    ya tie game, the big canadian will go deep

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      If he wasn’t already 4-4, I might agree with you.

    • D-Roc

      yes!!!! i jinxed him

    • Will

      or K but you know…

    • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

      Not tonight. Law of averages.

      • V

        Wow. Wow.

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

    Heh, Morneau really wants to tie this up.

  • BigBlueAL

    Mourneau looking for a slider the past 2 pitches.

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

    *Crosses fingers*

  • Dave

    wow Coke is focused

  • e mills

    let’s go

  • yankees=warriors

    He did it!

  • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

    Coke is it!

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

    Let Coke finish the game?

      Papelbon does it, it’s sheer raw emotional gritness.

      • Zack

        but him and KRod do it at the end of the game!!!

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

    *breathes sigh of relief and puts drink down*

    • Ed

      breaths sigh of relief and celebrates with a drink

  • E-ROC

    That’s exactly how Girardi drew it up.

  • kunaldo

    what confuses me is how awful these guys have been after being awesome last year…i know relievers(aside from the elite) are volatile from year to year, but with this much deviation?? edwar looks like has a 2 seamer now which he just can’t control

    i just don’t get how these guys are STAYING god awful…not even improving a little

    • Pasqua

      For what it’s worth, Edwar was looking pretty heinous at the end of last year. His heinousness this year is not much of a surprise.

  • Yankee1010

    Oh, Phil, don’t let Aubrey catch you doing that.

    • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

      Bush league fist pump there.

    Here’s to Coke (+ hopefully Melancon), Bruney, and Mo. And to never having to see Edwar in a big spot again.

      Don’t worry Mike, I’ll hit a home run for you

      - Aubrey Huff

  • Ed

    3.7 hr per game this year at the new yankee stadium. 1.8 or so last year. Obviously, still early, and that number has come down over the last few weeks (tonight doesn’t help), but it is still a lot.

    • Zack

      What are other stadiums at?

    Nick Punto makes things happen.

  • V

    Ok, time for an elementary lesson in probability and statistics. Too many people seem to believe the ‘He’s due’ argument, or that the ‘Law of Averages’ implies that someone who’s 4-4 will make an out or someone batting .200 MUST go .400 for the next month because he’s a career .300 hitter.

    At bats are not perfectly independent, but it’s rather safe to say that someone being 4 for 4 does not make it LESS likely for them to get a hit in their 5th at bat.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.....dependence

    Also, there is no ‘Law of Averages’. Please read the following two links.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_large_numbers

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_averages

    You’re welcome.

    • Drew

      No one claimed it was fact. More of a talking point.

    • Zack

      i think it was just wishful thinking and looking for something to grab on to

    • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

      Can you do long division? Can I send you my homework?

      • V

        :snort:

    • kunaldo

      gracias…enlightenment is a beautiful thing

    • A.D.

      At bats are far from perfectly independent, since all kinds of things change especially the quality of the opponent. This isn’t rolling die or picking numbers out of a hat.

      • V

        Agreed. But you can’t say that going 4/4 makes it less likely a guy gets a 5th hit. Especially given that the reliever he’s facing in AB #5 is worse than the guy he faced in ABs 1-4.

        • A.D.

          True true

    • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

      Dude, watch the game.

  • E-ROC

    Ugh. Orel Hershiser is a B-Jobber.

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

    What? Why no Matsui PH?

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

      Cervelli is batting .375, strange as it sounds. He don’t need a pinch hitter.

  • BigBlueAL

    Another sac bunt coming up for Cervelli.

  • pat

    I know it’s early but can we say the relative success of Pena and Cervelli as rookies can be largely attributed to being unheralded guys who came in under the radar with no pressure to perform? Or is it just too small of a sample size and we’re all falling in love with them too early?

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      I dont think most of us are falling in love with them too early, cause most of us know what they are- guys who probably aren’t going to hit much but will field the hell out of their positions. That is what we are seeing, and the fact that they dont look to be overwhelmed at the plate is just a plus. It is nice to see the Yankees are at least able to find some bench players for the future in their system.

    • Pasqua

      Sample size. .200 at Trenton don’t necessarily lie.

      • Zack

        in 58 ABS, last year in 73 he hit .315
        he’s neither, like most catchers he’s in that .250 range

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        If you want to use Cervelli’s 16 games at Trenton from this season to prove he is a .200 minor league hitter, why not look at the 21 games last season and conclude he is a .315 hitter? The .200 at AA is just as small a sample as his good sample here.

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

      Too small for Cervelli, but I think we got a good idea about Peña.

  • http://goldenrule.mlblogs.com/ Bryan V

    Just came up in my Liveblog, and I’m not sure. Little help?

    What’s “oaktag”?

    • V

      It’s an inside joke – essentially means ‘FAIL’.

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

      It’s RABtalk for “massive fail” Look a few pages back for the thread about the Damon sign.

      • http://goldenrule.mlblogs.com/ Bryan V

        Thanks guys.

    • pat

      HAHAHAHA

  • yankees=warriors

    Ah, he didn’t really had to bunt. He hits well enough.

  • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

    I’m loving Pena. What he’s shown with the bat (if he can keep it up all year) is enough so far to give Cash & Co reason to “ask” Jeter to “voluntarily” move to LF next year.

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

      Let’s see what happens the second time through the league first.

      • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

        (if he can keep it up all year)
        is enough so far to give Cash & Co reason to “ask” possibly think about “asking” Jeter to “voluntarily” move to LF next year.

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

      Yeah… about that… still not enough.

      Probably not going to happen, as nice as it is to have him come up like this.

    • Pasqua

      Oh god, man. Easy.

    • yankees=warriors

      Hate to say it, but quite true, especially when Jeter’s actually hitting close to Pena’s average.

      • Pasqua

        You might need a timeout.

        • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

          Maybe YOU do.

    • Tony

      Hahahahahaha… no. Pena can’t hit at all. And Jeter hasn’t been a problem in the field.

  • Dorian

    Why everyone keeps talking about Cervelli batting .190 I have no idear. The guy batted .313 in Trenton last year

    • A.D.

      Makes for a better story

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

    So, who pitches the 9th?

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

      Coke.

  • Pasqua

    Please don’t be one of those, “Let’s look back at all the Yankees’ missed opportunities” games. I HATE those games.

  • DreDog

    I’ve liked Cervelli’s MLB tour this year.
    Do you think they send him to AA where he was .190, or to AAA?

    • Pasqua

      Or does Molina’s leg injury “linger” for a few extra weeks?

    • V

      Gotta be AAA. And it’ll let him work with Hughes in preparation for next season, when he’ll be the backup catcher and Hughes will be the #5 starter.

      • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

        Who’s the staring C? I sure hope you aren’t counting on Jorge. Squatting and throwing for 9innings can’t be good for 38 year old hamstrings and shoulders. Jorge will be our DH in ’10, mentoring whoever the C is. C is really the only position I see open next year.

        • Tony

          No he won’t

          • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

            After last year and this year, plus Matsui coming off the books, the smart money says: Jorge Posada = DH in 2010.

            • Tony

              After this year meaning an unrelated hamstring injury that came running the bases while DHing. Right.

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

      That’s a good question. They’ll probably keep him at least till Molina comes back.

      • DreDog

        Of course, then to AAA or AA?

        • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

          AAA

  • pat

    That was nice of the ump to walk the ball out after Cervelli took a foul tip off the junk.

  • Ivan

    Come on Coke.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    C’mon, Phil. throw strikes.

  • Ivan

    Can’t BB a dude who’s OBP% is less than .300

  • dkidd

    come on phil!

  • pat

    good, tie him up high and tight sets ujp the slider low and outside.

  • V

    And… there goes the double play. UGh.

    • E-ROC

      That was a great movie.

    • Dorian

      *FEED ME TO THE POOR

  • V

    Wow, Teix with the glove.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Cuddyer is the guy who scares me here.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      See? RBI!!! You see the worthless nature of that stat right there.

  • Yankee1010

    Smooth play there by Teixeira.

  • Ivan

    Man everytime I see Tex make plays like that, I say to myself, how many runs did the yanks lose with Giambi playing 1st.

  • V

    One more out…

  • Ed

    I love the glove on Tex. Not to often you see the pitcher barehand the toss from the 1bman.

  • Tank the Frank (formerly just “Frank”)

    God I hate Carlos Gomez. Please let him make the final out.

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

    Don’t walk Carlos Gomez, please.

  • dkidd

    hate gomez

    please end this right here

  • kunaldo

    CANNOT let gomez get on base…

  • yankees=warriors

    One more strike, Coke!

  • Ivan

    Take it home Coke.

  • kunaldo

    fuck

  • V

    Ugh.

  • E-ROC

    Mercy.

  • Ivan

    Tell me he did not BB Carlos Gomez

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Ugh, are you kidding?

  • Pasqua

    Starting to think that Coke needs an adrenaline rush to put him over the top. He’s a different pitcher with nobody on base.

  • V

    Don’t blow this…

  • Yankee1010

    Watching the pen walk so many guys is infuriating. Gomez, who could easily be on 2nd in a second, has no business walking.

  • pat

    it’s alright boys keep the faith. Coke will deliver.

  • Ivan

    Im not worried still.

  • Ed

    Strikes please.

  • A.D.

    How does he not get coke to chase something

  • dkidd

    calm down phil

  • D-Roc

    i think its safe to say phil coke can’t close in the nl

  • yankees=warriors

    Man, Coke’s rattled…

  • V

    Um, Jeter struck out on that pitch earlier.

  • Eirias

    The hell? I leave for fifteen minutes and the Yankees are up by one run, in the 9th, and Mo is not pitching? Moreover, RAB isn’t assailing Girardi for it? What is this Bizarro-world?

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

      He’s pitched a lot recently.

      • Eirias

        Yeah, but Joba could do it.

    • pat

      Mo’s pitched a bunch the past few days.

    • Zack

      thankfully most of the posters here are aware of Mo’s recent workload

  • Ed

    Here we go!

  • A.D.

    jeeez coke

  • sweet

    he just wants to make sure there is another walk off

    • yankees=warriors

      I don’t want another walk-off. Just win NOW.

  • Charlie

    where the fuck is mo????????

    • V

      Did you see what happened to Nathan Friday?

      Wanna see Mo’s arm fall off?

      • http://9thinning.blogspot.com VO

        The Yankees will sell it on steinersports.com

      • Will (the other one)

        Don’t worry, he’ll grow another one, no big deal. Though my greatest fear is that Brett Favre would try to buy the one that fell off and see if Dr. Andrews could attach it to him…

  • yanks bullpen hold hold your breath

    I have a feeing that they’ll tie it up.

  • BigBlueAL

    Problem is with the lefty mashers up soon really cant take Coke out. Unless you think Tomko can definitely get either Span or Harris out.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      You cant plan three hitters ahead like that.

  • Ivan

    Lets go Coke.

  • dkidd

    3 amigos from scranton

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

      Exact that two of the three never played in AAA.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Who is this Phil Cook guy?

  • BigBlueAL

    Redmond, at least in the past, has hit lefties well. Grooving a 3-2 fb here worries me.

  • A.D.

    Phew, got it done.

  • sweet

    hellz ya

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

    Smile, Phil.

  • E-ROC

    Thank Mo!

  • Ed

    I love baseball tonight when the Yankees win.

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

    Redmond swung at ball four three times. Phew.

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

    FUCK YES

  • V
  • BigBlueAL

    Whoa swung at Ball 4.

  • yankees=warriors

    Phew….
    Now I know why this is only Coke’s 1st save.

    • handtius

      Actually this is coke’s first save cause we have Mo.

  • Charlie

    wow, coke nailin it down

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

    YANKEES WIN!

    I had to charge my computer, but oh man, Phil Coke was totally deer in the headlights.

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

      Is it just me or did he look like he was about to cry?

  • pat

    I like seeing tex pumped up.

  • Ivan

    Yankees win, thhhhaaaaaaaa Yan-Kees WIN!!!!

  • Blackdragon905

    never in doubt lol

  • yanks bullpen hold your breath

    Thankfully I was wrong

    • BigBlueAL

      Love the name. LMFAO.

  • Eirias

    So only walk-offs get the pie in the face?

    • yankees=warriors

      LOL, if AJ does it every game, he’ll run out of whip cream too soon.

  • Ed

    Did Chris Berman just say something nice about the New Yankee Stadium? I didn’t think ESPN employees were allowed to.

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

      Boomer says what he wants.

  • steve (different one)

    it never occurred to me that Mo was unavailable, but thinking back to the last 4 games, yeah…makes sense.

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

    Phenomenal sweep. Really. Truly. But I have to wonder why we can’t put anybody away. Every game seems to be a nailbiter. Of every game in the win streak, only one has been by more than 2 runs (I believe). Just an example.

    • steve (different one)

      impossible. A-Rod hit 3 HRs, therefore all of the games must have been blowouts.

  • dkidd

    this homestand >>>>>>>>>> last homestand

  • MattG

    Well, Mo has nothing to worry about.

    • Pasqua

      I always imagine Mo waiting for the arrival of his replacement eagerly…the NEW “Chosen One,” who will finally let him rest peacefully.

  • LiveFromNY

    FINALLY on the RIGHT side of a sweep!!!

  • Eirias

    I love that Gameday has Coke’s Out Pitch as the changeup, given that he, apparently, didn’t throw one tonight.

  • DreDog

    I think that helped Phil “I need a role” Coke realize his role.

  • MattG

    1st sweep, 1st 6 game win streak, 1st time 4 over, 1st time back-to-back for Tex-Rod, and 1st save for Phil.

    • Will (the other one)

      +1. Even if the sweep shaved a couple years off all our lives. I’ll take it!

  • e mills

    lol Kruk is rediculous right now….Morneau – He’ll see Coke a few more times and dial that up….A-Rod and Tex only hit their HRs b/c the SP balked and was hangin his head…lollol

    • V

      Wow, really?

      What a moron.

    • V

      Wow, really?

      What a moron.

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

      Did anyone call him on this?

    • http://eastrutherfordrant.com donttradecano

      what a tool.

  • Ed

    Good win. Bring on the O’s!

  • Zack

    kruk said he’d take mauer & morneau over arod & tex

    • DreDog

      What a jerk.

    • Pasqua

      Mauer’s kidneys beg to differ.

    • steve (different one)

      if you’re just talking offense, that’s silly.

      if you’re talking age, contracts, positional importance, etc…it’s not that crazy.

      Mauer is the balls.

      • Zack

        it was strictly in your line up as 3-4 hitters

        • steve (different one)

          ok, they asked the same question on YES.

          yeah, that’s silly.

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        Agreed. Although Morneau is overrated.

    • V

      And that would make him an even worse GM than Mr. Traded for Mo Vaughn Phillips.

  • steve (different one)

    how nice is it to have a 6 game win streak and look up and see CC Sabathia is starting your next game?

  • pat

    Winfield was a great player.

    TERRIBLE TERRIBLE on tv.

    • Zack

      cause he looks 7 feet tall standing next to those two idiots

      • pat

        That and he offers no insight and isn’t very articulate.

        • Tony

          Think about who he is replacing.

  • Thomas A. Anderson

    Yeah, anyone who says that getting 1-inning saves isn’t that hard, take a look at this as Exhibit #1.

    • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

      He pitched 1+.

      • Thomas A. Anderson

        Point taken. But, generally speaking, the idea was he turned to a jelly-legged mess once the 9th started. Just makes me appreciate Mo even more, is all.

        • BklynJT

          Yeah. I just caught the postgame interview with Coke. He was doing pretty funny imitations.

    • Drew

      Or maybe Phil isn’t a closer. Exhibit 2 I suppose.

  • http://www.myspace.com/sloanbruno69 Bruno

    Krunk was good at baseball. Not so good at thinking.
