• EvoLuTioN

    i’m sick of solo shots

    • V

      I’d take 4 in a row…

    • Drew

      Better than a bunt.

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

        I wonder how this game goes differently if they don’t bunt w/Melky.

  • BigBlueAL

    Because it most likely wont remain a 2-run deficit.

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

      Two run lead is upcoming!

  • Accent Shallow

    Andy for the 7th?

    • Ivan

      To be fair, he has pitch relatively well outside of the 2 homers.

      • Drew

        Well that doesn’t help us too much.

  • Drew

    60 strikes, 40 balls, not too hot.

  • Accent Shallow

    Victorino really rubs me the wrong way for some reason.

  • BigBlueAL

    Give Pettitte credit at least he has gone deep into the game. Probably figured if he could go 7 and give up 4 runs hed be in line for the win.

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

    Lush? Is there a forest in the new stadium of which I’m unaware?

    • Thomas

      I typically describe Fenway as lush area, but that’s because of the fans, not the actual stadium structure.

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

        OICWUDT.

  • Accent Shallow

    Thank god, thought that was getting out.

    Maybe Andy knew what he was doing walking Happy Pete twice.

  • pc69

    I am beginning to subscribe to the Bandbox coupled with very bad pitching. Ugggh. why can’t we just play Baltimore all the time. We look so good.

    • Accent Shallow

      This game is definitely still in play.

      • pc69

        I don’t know. As Mike said, this 2 run deficit feels like 10. Yanks are not hitting this series and the pitching can’t find a strike that doesn’t end up on the other side of the fence.

        • Drew

          Jeez man, we just finished a 9 game win streak. Have some confidence.

  • BigBlueAL

    I hate this kid!!! LOL

  • Ivan

    Come on Andy.

  • BigBlueAL

    Dont walk Coste please.

  • Drew

    Well, maybe we can get Andy a win.
    C’mon big inning.

  • Dan

    I’m beginning to agree that a large part of the “bandbox” is a lot of Yankees with power combined with a lot of Yankees who would be giving up jacks in any park.

    • Accent Shallow

      Or the Yankees accidentally built the park on 5000+ feet of elevation.

  • Drew

    C’mon Al, jack this foo

    • Accent Shallow

      Durbin is really underwhelming. Hopefully they can make something of that.

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

    Boos for A-Rod? How quickly fans forget what it was like without him.

  • Drew

    Get something started Melk!

  • Accent Shallow

    Ok Melky, time to salvage this inning.

  • YankeeScribe

    I don’t feel confident about them winning this game. The two-run deficit might as well be 6 runs

  • pc69

    Well, that was productive. 2 runs down but need 6 to tie. Crap.

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

    A-Rod’s BABIP: .097.

    • Thomas

      Hopefully his luck will turn.

    What a coincidence, I’m a Yankee fan that loves southern girls!

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

      That girl looked 15.

    • Accent Shallow

      Really? I can’t take the accent.

  • Drew

    If we go down 123 next inning we’ll have the top of the lineup due up in the 9th. Perfect setup for the comeback.

    • Accent Shallow

      I’d hope that they’d pinch hit for one of Cervelli/Pena. Both have looked absolutely helpless at the plate this game.

  • adeel

    After the nine game win streak, It looks like Kevin Long had a long sit down with the players to set them back onto their losing ways. Texiera was unable to attend.

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

      How was any of the losing Long’s fault? The team was hitting pretty well all through April.

      • adeel

        it’s just all the at bats look absolutely lifeless and haphhazard…and when the entire team starts funking…..

  • BigBlueAL

    Love watching Cano turn the DP.

  • Accent Shallow

    Just checked the box score, and Andy only gave up 5 hits in 7 innings. Not exactly like him. Unfortunately, two of those hits were jacks, so he gave up four runs. Argh.

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

      The dream stays alive!

  • Drew

    The hangover looks madddd funny.

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

      Meh. Not for $10.

      • Drew

        The internet is a wonderful thing..

  • Accent Shallow

    Nick, any time you want to start hitting at YS III would be nice.

  • Accent Shallow

    Sure, we’ll PH for Cervelli . . . with Brett freakin’ Gardner.

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

    Goddammit.

  • BigBlueAL

    I am really not liking Swisher much at all anymore.

    • Accent Shallow

      He is slugging .213 at home. That’s right, slugging.

      .131/.354/.213 at YS III so far.

      • Drew

        NS heard YS3 is not teh bandbox.

  • Drew

    PH with Gardner, hilarious. Hopefully it works though.

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

      Not nearly as bad as bunting to get to Gardner which the Yankees have done TWICE this season.

    • southernyankeefan

    Gardner pinch hitting? That’s the definition of making a move just to make a move.

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

      Girardi got lucky.

      • BigBlueAL

        Well c’mon though wouldnt u rather have Gardner hitting instead of Cervelli, especially vs a RHP like Madsen??

      • Accent Shallow

        Hit was off a 97 mph fastball. At least Gardner was able to do something with it other than foul it off.

  • Accent Shallow

    Let me be castigated for my doubt.

  • Drew

    What a call by Joe! lol

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

    That was a nasty change.

    • daneptizl

      lol at McCarver saying Swish struck out on a good fastball when it was a change…

  • southernyankeefan

    every swing he took he was trying to hit a HR.

  • adeel

    what happened to pena ab?

  • Accent Shallow

    Derek, is it too much to hope for another jack here?

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

    Jeter was a mile out in front of that one.

  • Ivan

    This is a tough matchup for Jeter

  • YankeeScribe

    All we need is a single captain!

  • pc69

    Seriously what is the point of pinch hitting Matsui? Why not just give them an out and go onto the next hitter so Matsui doesn’t look so putrid.

  • Justin R.

    The last ten years the Yankees are chastised for being too businesslike and not as fun as those crazy kids from Boston.

    Now that they show some life and personality, McCarver has to takes shots and remind them that “the winning comes first and then the fun.” Give me a break.

    • Drew

      Esecially when kangaroo court was during a 9 game win streak. They’re unreal.

      • Justin R.

        Winning comes first, Drew. Then rational comments based in logic!

  • Drew

    Who will pitch next inning? Coke or Tom

  • Accent Shallow

    Clearly Gardner should have stolen third and home.

  • BigBlueAL

    Madsen toyed with Matsui and Jeter.

  • douglas quaid

    bad hitting

  • pc69

    Fuck. That was the game. Fuck!

    • Ivan

      No way. Yanks have Damon, Tex and A-Rod comming up.

  • V

    Ugh. Now we need a Damon single+Teixeira HR to win.

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

      to tie

      • V

        If we tie, we win. It’s the walkoff stadium.

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

          I’ll buy that.

    • Drew

      or 5 consecutive bb’s

      • Drew

        *to tie.

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

        Or a solo HR + 3 BB + HBP

  • Accent Shallow

    As long as they can avoid getting swept.

    Sabathia going tomorrow should go a long way to preventing that.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      They have Hamels on the mound. If we couldn’t hit Happ, Hamels will be a lot tougher.

      • Accent Shallow

        That’s what you would think, but it’s funny how these things work out.

  • Drew

    Yikes, Phil has gotten 4 outs, 3 of them have been hit on the screws.

  • Brazilian Yankee

        • Thomas

          He has an ERA over 7, hasn’t exactly been lights out.

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

          Lidge has a 9.49 ERA in his last 13 appearances.

        • Drew

          lol

        • douglas quaid

          YES IM WRONG YES YES YES

    • Accent Shallow

      Not only is this game not over, but they still play tomorrow.

      A sweep would suck, but it hasn’t happened yet. The Yankees could still win this series, for crying out loud.

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

      Yous crazy. The Yanks are gonna wins at least one.

  • V

    Why bring in a new reliever with 2 outs in the 9th with a 2 run deficit??

    • Accent Shallow

      So he can throw two pitches to induce the out?

      I was thinking more along the lines of walk, walk, home run.

      Veras gives up too much solid contact for someone with his stuff. The sooner he’s off the roster, the better.

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

      Why does it matter so much that so many people need to whine about it?

      • Drew

        I think you know why Jamal.

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

    Little known fact – Veras comes from the latin “verus” which means Scott Proctor.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Veras didn’t walk the first man he faced.. we are definately winning this one.

  • Drew

    Go Mets!! Their lineup looks worse today than it did yesterday. Hey, maybe it will work again.

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

      Oof, that is one ugly lineup.

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

    I would say start a new thread for new luck, but the Yanks have been lucky with more than a couple hard-hit liners being smacked right to their fielders. So, this thread is lucky enough in my book.

  • Accent Shallow

    So Lidge has been horrendous so far this year. Does that mean this will be another walkoff, or a 1-2-3?

  • Ivan

    All the yanks need is a bloop and a blast.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    walkkkk

  • Ivan

    Good A-bat Damon.

  • BigBlueAL

    Just what we needed!

  • Thomas

    Yeah, Damon.

    Come on Teix.

  • southernyankeefan

    and so it begins.

  • Accent Shallow

    And the tying run is at the plate.

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

    Heh, Damon didn’t even take the bat off his shoulders and he saw six pitches.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    come on texxx

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

    Every time a leadoff walk occurs when Tim McCarver is broadcasting I laugh inside a little.

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

    Hah, look where A-Rod is standing to get a look at Lidge.

    And geez Tex, he just walked Damon, why not take a pitch?

  • Drew

    U scarin me Teix

    • Drew

      That was pathetic. 3 same pitches, same spot, same result.

  • Ivan

    Tex looked awful on those sliders.

  • BigBlueAL

    WTF Tex!!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    dammitttt

  • http://liberalmusings.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    Those sliders were fucking hangers and he couldn’t hit ’em!

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

      They weren’t hangers, they were all out of the zone.

  • BigBlueAL

    That was the worst AB of Tex’s career probably.

  • southernyankeefan

    damnit.

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

    If he keeps swinging at it, keep throwing it.

  • Accent Shallow

    Well that looked painful.

  • http://liberalmusings.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    Let’s go A-Rod!!!

  • V

    Man, they have no chance at those sliders.

  • Ivan

    If your A-Rod, wouldn’t u sit on a slider.

  • V

    Man, they’re just flailing at it.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Has Tex ever hit a breaking ball?

    • Accent Shallow

      If he was really clutch, he would have willed Tex on base, so that would have been a walkoff rather than a game-tying shot.

    Melky with a chance for his third walk-off this season!

  • http://liberalmusings.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    Mo is warming. I hope the Yanks take the lead because I don’t love his pitching in tied games.

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

      Is there really someone else in that bullpen you’d rather have out there in the 10th?

      • http://liberalmusings.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

        It doesn’t matter now, but no. Still, it is better to have the lead.

    • Accent Shallow

      Purely hypothetically, if the Yankees were to fail to walk off, Mariano would face Feliz, Mayberry, and Coste, with Stairs possibly pinch-hitting for one of them. I like Mo’s chances, if it were to occur.

  • Drew

    Ohh what I would do for a pie in the face right now…

    • southernyankeefan

  • Accent Shallow

    So is A-Rod’s ball out in YS II? Or does someone need to Jeff Maier it?

    • Thomas

      I think it is a double, because of the lack of wall curvature. However, Mayberry Jr. was nowhere near catching it.

      Also with the hits after A-Rod, it is irrelevant.

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

    Suzyn Waldman probably has to be the only woman on this planet where I don’t get excited that whipped cream falls in her bosom.

    • Accent Shallow

      I’m pretty sure that’s shaving cream, but she really is the worst. Can they DFA her to add someone to the 40 man?

      • Tony

        They should trade Waldman, Sterling and Kay for Keith Hernandez.

    Did anyone see the Johan/Youk encounter from last night? That was all kinds of awesome.

      I don’t understand how anyone can be upset with Joba for throwing at Youkilis. Youkilis is exactly the sort of player who should be thrown at.

    We’ve seen them win so much in that situation this year. I truly was optimistic going into the 9th. Especially with how Lidge has pitched this year. I thought Tex was going to tie it, so I guess I was still wrong.
