Game 52 Spillover Thread II


Is this lead Jose Veras-proof?

Categories : Game Threads


  1. Chip says:

    No lead is Veras-proof

  2. I don’t know which I dislike more: God Bless America at YS or Sweet Caroline at Fenway.

  3. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    This lead is even Horne proof.


  4. Drew says:

    Forget Jose Veras, let’s hope Phil Coke can put up a scoreless inning or two. I hope he’s mentally prepared.

  5. pat says:

    I’m hearing whispers jesus is going to trenton tomorrow. (0-1)

  6. Charlie says:

    pretty good game by AJ

  7. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Johan who? Oh tonight’s LOSAH pitcher. I can’t wait to go to Yankees / Mets.

  8. 30 hits in 19 innings–Wang-ian.

  9. JobaWockeeZ says:

    I’d rather use Wang just because.

  10. Drew says:

    Mark Teixera is now Ramiro Pena. Kay you’re a fucking idiot. Watch the game.

  11. Charlie says:

    that’s the last time you’ll see ramiro pena PH for mark teixeira

  12. Chip says:

    I assume the Swish will be covering first from here on out?

  13. Talk. About. Baseball.

  14. Charlie says:

    kevin gregg sucks, marmol should be the cubbie’s closer

  15. John says:

    Lemme guess..Pena is going to play first now? And Berra will play 3rd, if he’s subsituted

  16. The Artist says:

    Just got this, SR on Tyler Matzek.


    They’re doing Matt Purke next, another possible Yankee draftee.

  17. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Do the Yankees even give a crap at this point?

  18. There’s a baseball game going on, guys.

  19. John says:

    Man, I bet Tex and A-rod would have loved to hit against Benson today.

  20. Charlie says:

    Angel Berroa is truly a disgrace to all organized sports ever in existence

  21. A.D. says:

    Put Tomko in to mop up

  22. Accent Shallow says:

    Please walk, Robbie!

  23. LiveFromNewYork says:

    A strong inning for Benson??? We sent our frigging bat boys out there.

  24. dkidd says:

    is kris benson still married to the crazy lady?

  25. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Girardi must have a date with the missus.

  26. John says:

    So, if we win, we have the best record in the AL, right?

  27. Drew says:

    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.

  28. Jake H says:

    Burnett really battled there. He clearly didn’t have his best stuff.

  29. YankeeScribe says:

    Is it safe to say the AL is weak this year? It seems like the AL East is the only legitimate division…

    • Chip says:

      The Tigers and Rangers have been awesome this year

      • Charlie says:

        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

  30. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Did Singleton bail on Kay? Did he rip up his contract?

  31. I bet Singleton can fuckin’ drill it on the golf course.

  32. Accent Shallow says:

    Davis has three flyouts to the track this game.


  33. Charlie says:

    chris davis is an automatic out.. and to think i once thought he could be a fantasy stud

  34. 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.

  35. dkidd says:

    “every ninth day” eddie

  36. Paul offering more evidence as to why Bernie was the most feared hitter of his generation.

  37. OmgZombies! says:

    The Yankees are like a man with two dildos.

  38. Drew says:

    I picked up Guardado in The Show last year. He killed it.

  39. dkidd says:

    what’s the point of a warning?

  40. LiveFromNewYork says:


  41. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Our play of the game is a tackle.

  42. Accent Shallow says:

    I hope we don’t see Wang here.

    A topical link:


  43. Drew says:

    I def wouldn’t have voted for JoPo today. \

  44. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Why Joe Why?

  45. Accent Shallow says:

    Ah, Veras. He of the 16/14 K/BB.

    And on the first pitch he gives up a rocket that was nearly out!

  46. RichYF says:

    Veras is the definition of precision command.

  47. Drew says:

    Papelbon alert.
    /crosses fingers.

  48. dkidd says:

    papelbon making it interesting

  49. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Are they seriously discussing joba to the pen?

  50. Are Kay and O’Neill B-Jobbers?

  51. LiveFromNewYork says:

    I think it’s giving up time.

  52. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Wow good outing for Veras.

  53. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Really. Throw the f’ing ball.

  54. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Jorge getting pissed. Maybe now he deserves player of the game.

  55. Accent Shallow says:

    Yay Veras! Yay win!

  56. Jorge looks mad at Veras.

  57. LiveFromNewYork says:

    He’s still pissed.

  58. Who da fuck is this guy?

  59. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Can NONE of them pronounce Teixeria?

  60. Zack says:

    bases loaded, no outs. 2 strike outs, come on detriot!

  61. MattG says:

    And in other news, the tying run is at the plate in Texas…

  62. For lack of a more creative name... Alex says:

    Lets go Tigers! bases loaded 2 out down 4 against Paps in the 9th.

  63. Drew says:

    Bottom of the Tigers lineup sucks.

  64. MattG says:

    Oh man, Francona has Saito warming up. THAT is interesting.

  65. RichYF says:

    What the heck is up with Kenny’s hair?

  66. MattG says:

    OK, he did the job, but there is something wrong with Papelbon. He is clearly not the same.

    I feel so bad for him.

  67. Ed says:

    Ortiz 1-5 3ks.

  68. LiveFromNewYork says:

    The BEST thing about this game was the DON’T FUCK WITH US message. The whole team sent it (with Girardi’s blessing).

  69. V says:

    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.

    • Zack says:

      “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

  70. Drew says:

    Torre with the best record in baseball.
    Joey G with the second best. Me likes.

  71. V says:

    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.”

    • V says:


      “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.”

      • Tank the Frank (formerly just "Frank") says:

        I love BP. Someone should call Francesa and site this article. These are people who get paid to know more about baseball than you.

    • Drew says:


  72. Blackdragon905 says:

    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.

  73. Drew says:

    Teix just said his first two bats against Padilla in his career he hit two homeruns. The 3rd AB he got hit.

    • Drew says:

      Also, this dude asking questions in the lockerroom with the YES mic is a moron.

      • V says:

        Agreed, heh.

        Next time the Yankees face Padilla, I could see a Joba or Burnett drilling a Ranger pre-emptively.

        • Drew says:

          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.

  74. V says:

    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.

    • Drew says:

      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.

  75. rsam says:

    long live the ynkees

  76. George says:

    So an A-bomb for Matsui… good one Sterling!

    great win tho!
