Is this lead Jose Veras-proof?
No lead is Veras-proof
I don’t know which I dislike more: God Bless America at YS or Sweet Caroline at Fenway.
What’s wrong with God Bless America?
This lead is even Horne proof.
what did he do?
Forget Jose Veras, let’s hope Phil Coke can put up a scoreless inning or two. I hope he’s mentally prepared.
Tomko could use the work, save Coke for when it matters as he’s one of the only reliable ones out there
I don’t consider him quite so reliable. And it seems everyone in the pen could use some work.
Not if he doesn’t know his role.
I’m hearing whispers jesus is going to trenton tomorrow. (0-1)
Does that mean the apocalypse is coming?
What a horse.
That’d be sweet! I’m going to tomorrow’s game (if it doesn’t rain).
You’re going to Trenton? Don’t get stabbed.
lol…Actually, despite most of Trenton being a war zone, Waterfront Park is actually REALLY easy to get to.
I’m hearing the same thing, through some super-secret double-probation sources I have.
pretty good game by AJ
Johan who? Oh tonight’s LOSAH pitcher. I can’t wait to go to Yankees / Mets.
30 hits in 19 innings–Wang-ian.
I’d rather use Wang just because.
Mark Teixera is now Ramiro Pena. Kay you’re a fucking idiot. Watch the game.
that’s the last time you’ll see ramiro pena PH for mark teixeira
So you’re saying that’s the last time Tex will get hit in the ass?
I beg to differ.
I assume the Swish will be covering first from here on out?
Talk. About. Baseball.
kevin gregg sucks, marmol should be the cubbie’s closer
Surprised Sweet Lou is sticking with him this long.
I dunno, I’d imagine it’s nice to be able to use Marmol in the fireman role, since he is their best reliever.
Agreed. Isn’t that what we always talk about? Your best reliever should not be your closer. Marmol can come in whenever and shut the door. probably more valuable than Gregg.
marmol has a WHIP of 1.48
Lemme guess..Pena is going to play first now? And Berra will play 3rd, if he’s subsituted
Swish at first, Pena at short and Berroa at third I’d imagine
Unless they put Posada at first and Cervelli in to catch
Just got this, SR on Tyler Matzek.
They’re doing Matt Purke next, another possible Yankee draftee.
another? I guess anything is possible but Matzek is not going to drop to us.
I could be wrong, but I thought he was one of the guys asking for big loot and/or a Boras client.
I don’t know but I know Purke is one of those guys
Just checked it out, sounds like I’m wrong. He’s considered a safe pick and signable.
Do the Yankees even give a crap at this point?
clearly they must not, if they’re PHing for arod and tex with ramiro and angelfuckinberroa
There’s a baseball game going on, guys.
Man, I bet Tex and A-rod would have loved to hit against Benson today.
Angel Berroa is truly a disgrace to all organized sports ever in existence
Put Tomko in to mop up
Please walk, Robbie!
A strong inning for Benson??? We sent our frigging bat boys out there.
is kris benson still married to the crazy lady?
Life just did a 30 hottest sports spouses (now and past…Marilyn Monroe was number 1) and his wife (ex) was on there.
You mean crazy hot as shit lady and yes I believe so
Girardi must have a date with the missus.
So, if we win, we have the best record in the AL, right?
I gotta tell ya. I really don’t understand so many peoples fascination with hating on Berroa. It can’t be just the ROY. I don’t get it.
Maybe it’s that he’s impressively bad
15 AB’s. 2 errors. Short term security in case Alex reinjures the hip. Would you like him to play gold glove defense and hit 400 in his total of 42 innings?
No, but .250 would be acceptable. I think his UZR/150 is something like -62 (yeah I know small sample size) too
42 innings. That’s less than 5 games. How do you expect him to produce. He’s hardly on the team.
Burnett really battled there. He clearly didn’t have his best stuff.
8 whiffs without his best stuff? I can accept that.
Is it safe to say the AL is weak this year? It seems like the AL East is the only legitimate division…
The Tigers and Rangers have been awesome this year
they’ll both regress a little but i agree that the AL is kinda weak. Mets, Cubs, Dodgers, Phils.. all very good teams in the AL its just the Yanks, bosox, and maybe the angels down the road
Did Singleton bail on Kay? Did he rip up his contract?
I bet Singleton can fuckin’ drill it on the golf course.
Davis has three flyouts to the track this game.
In Fenway they would have been pop-ups in the infield.
chris davis is an automatic out.. and to think i once thought he could be a fantasy stud
These “Little Bit of Luck” commercials are quickly becoming incredibly annoying. They’re not quite up to the GEICO ad or Australian emphysema patient level, but they’re getting there.
“every ninth day” eddie
Paul offering more evidence as to why Bernie was the most feared hitter of his generation.
The Yankees are like a man with two dildos.
I picked up Guardado in The Show last year. He killed it.
what’s the point of a warning?
That didn’t look intentional, IMO.
me neither, just want more consistency. last week some guy got tossed for hitting someone with a curve ball
Our play of the game is a tackle.
I hope we don’t see Wang here.
A topical link:
I def wouldn’t have voted for JoPo today. \
Why Joe Why?
Ah, Veras. He of the 16/14 K/BB.
And on the first pitch he gives up a rocket that was nearly out!
Veras is the definition of precision command.
Veras is the definition of how the hell did I get to be in pinstripes
papelbon making it interesting
My Mo I hate him.
Are they seriously discussing joba to the pen?
No in fact we were making fun of Fatcesa and his asinine push to get him in the pen.
“we”? Is that you Paulie?
Oh yeah. I was the host.
At least they’re discussing baseball and not the NBA or golf or food.
Scooter read the birthdays.
Or that Sotomayor lady.
Are Kay and O’Neill B-Jobbers?
I think they both want him in the rotation.
I think it’s giving up time.
Wow good outing for Veras.
Really. Throw the f’ing ball.
Jorge getting pissed. Maybe now he deserves player of the game.
Yay Veras! Yay win!
Jorge looks mad at Veras.
Yeah, he was definitely frustrated. I think he said What the F is wrong with you?
Yeah because Jorge is perfect
He’s not but he is a bottle rocket when he’s pissed.
which is starting to annoy me, can anyone else see his ego growing over the last year or two?
I’d say a lot more intensity than ego.
He’s still pissed.
Who da fuck is this guy?
He’s “I’m not Kim Jones.”
Can NONE of them pronounce Teixeria?
What? You didn’t know that it’s pronounced TECKS SHARE UH? Sure would seem that way..
bases loaded, no outs. 2 strike outs, come on detriot!
And in other news, the tying run is at the plate in Texas…
Lets go Tigers! bases loaded 2 out down 4 against Paps in the 9th.
fuck 3 Ks
Bottom of the Tigers lineup sucks.
Oh man, Francona has Saito warming up. THAT is interesting.
What the heck is up with Kenny’s hair?
OK, he did the job, but there is something wrong with Papelbon. He is clearly not the same.
I feel so bad for him.
hey paps you know where you’ll find sympathy? In the dictionary between shit and syphillis.
but they have daniel bard!!
I say we just start calling him Bards-worth and get it over with.
Ortiz 1-5 3ks.
still raised his BAA.
The BEST thing about this game was the DON’T FUCK WITH US message. The whole team sent it (with Girardi’s blessing).
Wow. Keith Law’s new mock draft has the Yankees taking Heathcott and passing on Scheppers AND Purke, both of who slip to the supplemental.
Also says the Yankees are big on Arnett, but he’s unlikely to fall past the mid teens.
“Also says the Yankees are big on Arnett”
Translation: Yankees put that out there so a team picks Arnett ahead of them if he slips so they can grab someone they really want.
Dont believe that Team X likes Player Y stuff, its all manipulation
Sooo we should say. “We really don’t like Strasburg?”
Yeah. I’m hoping Heathcott is a smokescreen. I like him at #76, but not in the 1st round.
1st round has to be Purke or, if there, Scheppers.
Torre with the best record in baseball.
Joey G with the second best. Me likes.
And BP ran a ‘Joba = starter or reliever’ article.
“In his career, Chamberlain now has a 3.19 ERA in 22 starts, averaging a little more than 5 1/3 innings pitched per. He has 125 strikeouts, more than one per inning, and a K/BB of 2.6. There’s never been a team in MLB history that could afford to move that guy to the bullpen. Even if you were to say that Chamberlain is a six-inning pitcher, something that isn’t clear yet, getting 192 innings of 3.19 ERA ball in a season would make him a top 40 starter in baseball every season, a six-win pitcher in line to make tens of millions of dollars a year.”
“Proponents of changing his role, including one highly visible and vocal one in New York, are fond of citing Chamberlain’s success as a reliever. Like many pitchers, Chamberlain took well to the simpler task of relief pitching, and has a career ERA of 1.53 in that role, with a 78/19 K/BB in 59 innings. The lesson to take isn’t that Chamberlain is a better reliever than a starter; the lesson is that everyone is a better reliever than a starter.”
I love BP. Someone should call Francesa and site this article. These are people who get paid to know more about baseball than you.
BRING ME PORCELLO’S LAST FIVE STARTS!!!!
his last start? atrocious!
I just read on nyyfans.com from a poster who said Montero has been promoted and is on his way to Trenton. Does anybody know if there is any truth to this? Thanks.
I don’t know if he HAS been promoted, but I would NOT be surprised if he was. Check the Trenton beat-writer, as he’d probably be in early on the news:
Teix just said his first two bats against Padilla in his career he hit two homeruns. The 3rd AB he got hit.
Also, this dude asking questions in the lockerroom with the YES mic is a moron.
Next time the Yankees face Padilla, I could see a Joba or Burnett drilling a Ranger pre-emptively.
Oh yeah. This one will go into the memory banks. Probably not in this series, but I doubt they get away with hitting one of our best hitters twice. Plus, AJ didn’t even hit Cruz.
LOL I loved AJ’s reaction to that ‘are you clicking?’ question.
“Me, or the team?”
It’s pretty obvious he hasn’t quite hit his PEAK form yet, as his curveball command is mediocre. He can survive because his fastball is mid-high 90s with awesome movement.
Yeah I heard that. It’s good that he’s not necessarily pleased with his outings just because he got a win. I can definitely see that ERA creep down below 4. He’s clearly not hit his stride yet.
long live the ynkees
So an A-bomb for Matsui… good one Sterling!
great win tho!
