    Why do struggling pitchers do well against out potent lineup?

    Is it because we don’t take them seriously?

    Or is that the excitement/pressure of facing the Yankees brings out the best of the pitcher?

    • Jay

      Prob a little of both.

    • gxpanos

      Everyone: calm down. The last innning looked bad, because Melk bunted, Grit got called out on to borderline pitches, and Berroa swung at a ball in his eyes.

      Give. It. Time.

      • John

        oh I have faith, i’m just asking in general

        • pat

          because you only remember the bad games.

          • John

            haha yea probably

      • Jay

        I’m far from worried…top of the order 3rd time around means runs.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Ok, go back to attacking the zone Joba. Just a DP ball.

  • e mills

    Both Joba and Hughes seem to lose confidence in their stuff and nibble rather than attack like they did before they got hit

  • Teix is the Man

    Dear Joba,
    Feel free to throw a strike

    • JobaWockeeZ

      He has been if you’ve been watching the game.

      • Teix is the Man

        39 balls, 27 strikes is not great

        • Chris

          Not sure where you got those numbers, because after 5 innings his numbers are 42 strikes, 31 balls.

  • Pastafarian

    Uggh Joba and his lead-off walks….. he wouldn’t do that if he was in the 8th inning!

    ***P.S. I’m kidding

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

    Everybody clap your hands? Seriously? What is this, my 8th grade dance?

  • Axl

    Why is Borroa still on the team let alone playing today…

    I thought his terrible move getting thrown out at home was his last day in pinstripes…

  • Steven

    Will Joba ever get into the 7th inning of a start, he’s done that like twice this year, KC and Detroit.

    • Tank the Frank

      Unless you’re joking, STFU.

  • pat

    Ugh that was such a bitch hit. Lucky robbie was playing in DP position.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Damnit… I hate hitters like Carroll. C’mon Joba. DP ball would be really nice right now.

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

    Kay is like a broken record. As soon as a runner reaches base, regardless of inning and spot in the order, he starts talking bunt.

    • kunaldo

      just like sterling after a leadoff walk

  • Rene

    whos watching gameday, it says joba did a pickoff woth a 94mph fastball!!!!

  • Drew

    C’mon jober.
    You got this.

  • John

    cmon Joba, get out of this unscathed

  • Steven

    I don’t get how you can’t throw a strike to a guy trying to bunt, I mean come on

    • Zack

      you’re suppose to throw up so he pops it up

      But he was missing low

      Glad I’m not the only one who found it absolutely hilarious. I am still laughing. I wouldn’t be if he got hurt but thank Mo that isn’t the case. Just looking at the replay. His big body flying, his very poorly mistimed dived, the fact he even caught it. Hysterical.

    • Jake H

      I thought more a giant seal

  • Steven

    He wouldn’t have done that in the 8th inning

    • Zack

      it would have been a triple play in the 8th

    • Matt-Pitt

      Of course not, he wouldn’t have had time too. He would have struck out the side on 2 pitches already.

  • fistpump

    super joba

  • ShawnT

    Hope he didnt jarr his elbow…

  • Teix is the Man

    This start should shut francesa up… not saying it will, but it should.

  • V

    Ok, that was SO not an athletic play.

    A great play. But Joba, NEVER DO THAT SHIT AGAIN!

  • John

    That Joba way off saying “Fuck You Mike Francesa, I CAN get out of the 5th inning!”

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Mike Francesa

    • John

      well, those were balls according to Gamecast, not sure what Gameday said though as Gamecast can be incorrect at times.

      • Matt-Pitt

        There was 2 or 3 that were borderline between Cap’n and Swish. Few that the ump was calling earlier and just didn’t call this inning.

    • Steven

      He was trying to hit corners and may have hit a few but the ump wasn’t giving him anything

    Does anyone realize that Joba didn’t really get an out, pitching that inning? The bunt turns into a double play and a pitch-out. Man, that’s funny too.

    • McCaff

      over

    • pat

      under.

      This team NEVER hits with runners on 3rd and less then 2 outs.

      2009 Yankees team tripleslash, runner on 3rd, less than 2 outs:

          Let’s recap.

          You: The Yankees never do well in this specific situation.
          Me: Actually, they do. Here’s the team results in that specific situation that shows you’re dead wrong.
          You: Yeah, well, nobody gives a shit. And, you’re gay.

          … aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, SCENE!!!

        don’t go blurring the lines with stats. I know what i see with my one 3 eyes.

  • Steven

    How the hell did Angel Berroa just make a good defensive play?

  • Drew

    Change time?

  • http://eemack.blogspot.com Jackson

    Wow, the hyperbole is flying around everywhere in here.

  • pat

    Joba cannot wait for jorge to throw the ball back, he’s fuckin amped.

    • handtius

      he’s amd a Po so he’s trying to throw the ball through his glove and break his arm. REVENGE!!!

  • e mills

    98???? Joba is the man

    • e mills

      an aside, no one in the ESPN booth acknowledges that it was 98 in the 6th inning (of course)

  • Jay

    This is gonna end up one of those games where the bottom of our order does something nuts…like grit hitting a 3 run job. (out of the park)

    • John

      as long as we win, I dont care how

  • http://eemack.blogspot.com Jackson

    Joba hitting 97 in the 6th according to ESPN’s gun. That’s got to quiet some B-Jobbers right?

  • BigBlueAL

    Who says Jeter has no range.

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

      I got nervous when he backhanded that ball.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    But I thought Joba couldn’t pitch past the fifth?

  • Nady Nation

    Awesome inning by Joba. Can we get him some fucking runs?

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Let’s score some runs now plox. And new strategy, get out then score the runs. Apparently 0 outs is more pressure than 2 outs.

  • Matt-Pitt

    This man is throwing a GEM. They better get him the W.

    Let’s give this man some run support. Bottom of the order will pick up the slack for the disgrace 4/5/6 put up.

  • Teix is the Man

    Holy shit, Sizemore might have surgery

    • Jay

      Really??

      • Teix is the Man

        yeah, article on espn.com

      • Hova

        Grady Sizemore may need surgery to fix his inflamed elbow.
        Sizemore was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday because of the injury. While an MRI revealed no structural damage to his elbow, arthroscopic surgery remains an option, according to athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff. If Sizemore’s elbow doesn’t return to normal after his stint on the DL, surgery will be performed, which would likely mean another six weeks on the shelf

    As opposed to bunt and stand still.

    Love the Gardner chant.

    Gardner chant?

    Let Cap have a chance…he won’t fail us….Come on Grit

      ?

    We need to put some pressure on the defense. What about a double steal? Stay out of the GIDP.

  • e mills

    I pinch hit Damon

      Agree!

        Hey pal: It’s 2009.

        Grow the fuck up already. Homophobia – not cool. Go get counseling. You have a problem.

        • The Ironhorse

          I’m just pointing out the obvious. You = Gay. Go get your pom poms.

            you = bianned. peace bitch.

          • handtius

            You know calling some one gay, usually means that you have a deep secret and you’re projection onto someone else…so, you = gay, and I’m ok with that and you should be too.

        • handtius

          seconded.

        • pat

          Haha, I didn’t even read enough of that comment to see that.

      • gxpanos

        Wow. Could this comment have been sent at a less opportune time? I think the two-run double came at 9:22.

      • Drew

        well that is pretty out of line…

  • YankeeScribe

    If they don’t score this inning, they deserve an L

    Hmm this looks familiar.

    Please take the game please,please,please

    This is where you pay for putting Swisher in the 2 hole…

    It always comes back to bite you…

    • The Ironhorse

      Shhh, tommiesmithjohncarlosisahomo will call you out for not being a member of the positive posse.

      This is when you STFU with the pessimism.

        Yes, I want the team to lose. You are correct. POSITIVE POSSE SISTERS UNITE! Fags…

  • JobaWockeeZ

    PH Damon. There is going to be an inning ending GIDP.

  • John Duci

    If we score in the top of the 7th and they delay the game with the yanks winning 2-1 with 2 outs, do the yanks get the win if they cant play anymore? Or no because we batted more?

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

    Swisher has got to be pissed at himself. As a hitter, you hate it when you miss good pitches to hit. That was right down the middle. Good thing is you sit on that zone again.

    Swisher I side the park off a bird!

  • Matt-Pitt

    BOOMMMM

    A-Rod is about to put this game outta reach. My guess, double in the gap or down the line.

  • John

    Swishah is God

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

    When does Cleveland officially start entertaining trade offers for Cliff Lee and others? This team, with Grady and Hafner (more Grady) on the DL just isn’t formidable. DeRosa, Lee and others (Martinez?) could fetch some young talent. This team isn’t going anywhere.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      I’ve heard rumors of Martinez going to the Red Sox for pitching prospects. Hopefully that doesn’t happen.

      • gxpanos

        Me either, but it makes a bunch of sense, unfortunately.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Yeah. I think the Indians wants at least Clay Bucholz but they don’t want to give him away.

      • Andrew

        Well at least their attempting to diversify their team a little.

  • JeffG

    Please let it be Vizcaino.

  • Tom Zig

    Vizcaino owes us one for blowing up in the playoffs against the indians

    What’s the over/under on sliders thrown in this AB? Viz loves the slider.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    If we go up big I hope they don’t pull Jobessss

  • gxpanos

    Nick Swisher: President of the Positive Posse.

    Threw 2 perfect sliders and a fastball down the middle. Thats one he should’ve crushed. Hope he gets another.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    nice hit alex.

  • BigBlueAL

    Ball game baby. WTF Tex??????

  • LiveFromNewYork

    What was Tex doing?

    • handtius

      i expect he thought the throw was going through and wanted to make sure, but went to far. you saw he was mad at his mistake.

  • Matt-Pitt

    I’ll take it. Bad baserunning, Teix, but at least 2 runs come in.

  • YankeeScribe

    Another weak, useless two-run single from from A-Roid!

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Unclutch bastard.
      I’ll still take it.

  • Steven

    Nice hit Arod, but what was Teix thinkin

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Where was Tex going?

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

    Dude, Robbie is flipping the bat around in the on deck circle like a majorette. That was hilarious. Did anyone see that?

  • Pete

    So does Joba pitch ….

    THE EIGHTH?!!!

    • Pete

      Or maybe he could get through the 7th first, dummy. :)

    • Steven

      He really could this game but if the rain actually comes, then no

  • Matt-Pitt

    Cano is putting one in the stands and blowing this game up.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Rob. E. time to get hot again my man.

  • e mills

    Phillips upset that Alex didn’t fail – Orel says, “I can tell you’re upset Steve by the expression on your face” after Alex singles

  • E-ROC

    And I thought the Yanks bullpen walk too many batters.
