            Brett Gardner, after he pinch run for Matsui earlier in the game, will hit a game winning ground ball single up the middle

    Because this is how baseball works, ARod will win the game this inning. Then the boo birds will have all ticket priviledges revoked and forced to sit in full Yankees gear at every Red Sox game. Those who survive will be allowed to come to the stadium and watch the game at a local bar.

    • LiveFromNewYork

          • Babe’s Ghost

            Really?

            Is it foolish and stupid to boo when a player is too lazy to run out an infield pop that ends up being dropped?

            Is it foolish and stupid and stupid to boo when your ‘franchise’ center fielder strikes out looking with bases loaded in the last inning of game seven of the NLCS?

            Is it foolish and stupid and stupid to boo when your ‘ace’ walks in the losing run that causes you to lose the NLCS?

            I suggest that the answer to this is NO!

            On the other hand, you could make a good case that it is foolish and stupid to root for the Mets.

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

    Brett Gardner needs to steal 2B every time he’s on first and it’s open, or he’s not really a useful ballplayer, IMO.

    Girardi over manages, I think. Pinch running Gardner for Swisher in the 7th? What about the homer Swish is going to hit in the 9th? Do you play for 1 run in the 7th? Sheesh. Don’t OAKTAG me.

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

      Yeah, I’ve been defending Girardi all day, but I agree, I thought that was an unecessary substitution.

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

      No I agree with you on this. Swisher’s been swinging a really hot bat lately and it’s not like he’s Adam Dunn out there on the bases in terms of speed. I’d rather Joe have waited til later to use a PR.

  • dre

    why pinch run here? its still only the 7th and you just gave up swishers bat..

    • JP

      Can we pinch hit Swisher for Gardner in teh ninghth? ;-)

  • Jay

    Gardy is brought in to run. But he doesn’t. I’m confounded.

  • mick

    Swish is getting hot at just the right time.Love how he works the count!

  • Nady Nation

    Too early to pull Swish? He’s been raking of late, and it’s only the 7th. Not so sure about that move, unless you make sure you let Gardner steal 2nd first.

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

      I mean, shit, Swisher just scored from first on Tex’s double.

      He’s fast enough to not be a liability on the basepaths.

      • Drew

        That’s what I thought, the only reason to PR for Swish is too steal. It would suck if Joe put the sign on and he didn’t go again.

        • Drew

          *to

    • Matt-Pitt

      Way to early, IMO. Swish has been swinging a hot bat and if Gardner isn’t going early in the count, what is the point? I would have rather Girardi waited it out and see if Matsui gets on base next inning. That is a man who needs someone to pinch run for him, but I guess thats when we will see Berroa if Matsui gets on.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      I found that to be curious as well. If Grit is going to pinch run, you gotta have him steal 1st or 2nd pitch, and Teix has to be ready to be in the hole….

    • Zack

      Swish’s spot wasnt a lock for an AB in the 9th

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

    You don’t want to take the bat out of Tex’s hands by him having to swing while Gardy steals. And you’re certainly not going to bunt with Tex, in order to move the runner over (although there was already 1 out anyway).

    So what was the point of the pinch-runner?

    • Zack

      why does Tex have to swing when Brett steals? Ball could be down the middle and he’s fast enough to beat it out

  • LiveFromNewYork

      I have done that before. First game at the stadium was Yanks/Sox and some guy in front of me starting booing Tex. I simply yelled at the guy, he yelled back a bit but understood my frustration for fans who do that. He then told me it was “tough love” and bought my sister and I a round of beers. He didn’t boo a Yankee for the rest of the game.

  • http://eemack.blogspot.com Jackson

    I’m not saying I agree with the move in any way, but I wonder if Girardi wasn’t thinking that if they scored a run in the 7th he’d be putting Gardner in as a defensive replacement anyways. So why not pinch run him and slightly increase the chance of scoring that run.

    • Chip

      I still think you send him though.

      • Drew

        How do you know Joe didn’t?

        • Chip

          I don’t, I’m not saying it wasn’t a bad move just as long as he also put the steal sign on

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

        You HAVE TO send him. The move only makes sense if Gardner goes on pitch #1 and Tex refuses to swing on the pitch so Gardner can steal second.

      • http://eemack.blogspot.com Jackson

        Oh, he definitely should have been stealing, what’s the point of Gardner if he’s not going to steal.

        • Zack

          because then you have first base open, they walk Tex and face unclutch alex

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

            Which would be a good thing.

              pfft. walks clog the bases.

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

      That may be right. However with 1 out already in the inning, and Tex at bat, I still think it was a bad call.

          Oh, Jesus. Sorry. Already trying to erase the DP out of my memory I guess.

  • mick

    Total waste of Swish plus it takes another power hitter out on a day when posada isn’t catching…Texas must love Girardi today!

    • Chip

      Not all that worried about it thus far. I mean we have a lineup of Cano/Matsui/Melky/Posada/Jeter/Damon sure to hit yet.

    • JobaWockeeZ


      I’d rather have Cervelli catch who can throw out baserunners especially against a team like Texas. Stop blaming Girardi, you do not sound smart.

      You think Joe is going to let Cervilli hit with Posada on the bench?

    in what dimension is Brett Gardner a better center fielder than Melky? i only ask because our beloved manager contiually puts him in over melky…

    • Drew

      I don’t think Joe trusts BG in the corners.

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

      The dimensions that go over defensive statistics that prove the only think Melky has over Gardner is a better arm.

        The only thing Gardner has over Melky is speed you mean?

      Rightfield requires more arm strength to play and Brett has better range in CF according to UZR, I think.

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

    Nice one pitch day for D-Rob.

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

    Tough outing so far for DRob :)

  • pat

    Sweet, now we score here and D-Rob gets the W after 1 pitch.

        HEY! TJ Ducket saved my fantasy season!

  • Tampa Yankee

    Anyone see the line that Mauer, Morneau and Kubel combined for today?
    9-11 9 runs, 9 rbi and 4 bb… damn!

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

      Ee gods, brain! (not sure that’s how it goes, but you get it)

      What did Mauer have? I have him on one of my fantasy teams…

      • Tampa Yankee

        3-4 4 r 0 rbi

  • dkidd

    start stretching, mo

  • tampayank

    let’s hope for another walkoff, I’ll go w/ Damon getting the big hit to win it

  • Charlie

    i missed most of this game, so anyone want to recap a little bit? I see he gave up quite a few runs, but how did wang look?

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

      Average. His velocity was there and the sinker was there, too, but he fell in love with it and lefties adjusted to it. However, he only walked 1 guy and struck out 5. It’s something to build on. His line:

      4.2 7 5 5 1 5

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

    Love it, Robbie. Love it.

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

      Did he just draw a walk!?!?

  • kunaldo

    there’s no way cervelli is getting this next AB right?

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

      I doubt it.

  • Dave

    Damnit boston is playing well without a sub 200 hitter in the middle of their lineup.

  • John

    Cano walked! How lazy! He should’ve jogged with a HR!

  • Matt-Pitt

    Matsui JUST missed it.

  • tampayank

    wang didn’t look to great, 4 and 2/3…once he went through the lineup the 2nd time he got hit hard…he needs those secondary pitches to be able to get back to his past success…poor Hughes

    • Axl

      Rehab starts in AAA are overrated. Ian Kennedy flourishes down there…then gets called up and looks like Sidney Ponson

    • kunaldo

      his arm was probably tired though dude…he’s been throwing like 40 pitches in his relief outings…all things considered, i think he did well…and his stuff was better

      it’d be nice to see the pitch f/x to confirm though

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

      he pitches to contact. The two hits down the 3B line that hurt the most weren’t hit hard. This is going to happen to pitchers like Wang.

  • Axl

    Is Jeter sore or hurt or can he pinch hit for one of the many scrubs Girardi started?

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

      …for one of the many scrubs Girardi started?

      See, Axl, THAT’S WHY YOU ANNOY US.

      Those stupid little quasi-jabs trying to smear Joe Girardi for resting guys, even though IT’S HIS JOB TO REST GUYS.

      • Axl

        Haha it really doesn’t bother me…
        But I figured that I get blamed for posting the scoreboard…so I might as well add SOMETHING for everybody to be mad at me about…
        At least THEN it would make a little sense…

        They do look like a little unathletic (mostly Tex, A-rod not so much) but they are some of the finest athletes in the world IMO. A-rod is a beast as is Tex. Pretty athletic to me.

    • radnom

      Why?

      That is a meaningless baserunner.
      If anything, that situation is the ONLY time you always go for the dive. The only thing you trade is a chance for a double play for a chance for an out right there. I would take that trade.

      Note: did not actually see the play, assuming it was at least a reasonable attempt.

  • Drew

    Good try by Melky. That run doesn’t matter.

    • Drew

      Unless teh bandbox, you know what I mean.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    My fave is Mo showing pitchers and hitters how he pitches and no one can copy it and no one can hit it. There’s no secret to it.

    Ah yes, thanks melk

      See what I mean.

      He does this more often than people realize. We think of him as lights out but sometimes he’s just dawdling out there. Maybe trying to get in some work.

      I’ll second that. My HD YES was so crisp, I could hear the cut on Mo’s pitches. Hooray Comcast.

      Yeah, but you live in Jersey.

      • Drew

        heh.. I knew I’d get that from someone.

    Very nice to come up with a win. Wang got in there and although he wasn’t great he at least took some more steps to getting back. That it didn’t cost us a loss is just great.

  • Axl

    Who would win in a fight…

    Aunt Jemima or Mrs. Buttersworth

    • Charlie

      Aunt jemima, her syrup’s way better and she’s a total gangster.

  • Charlie

    Great win for the yanks, and while its probably been mentioned earlier, that 6 game suspension for Burnett is absolute fucking bull shit and really caught me by suprise.

    • Zack

      its what Beckett got, and Beckett got it reduced to what 3 or 4 games, dont worry

      • kunaldo

        beckett’s was totally uncalled for, and was done after abreu called time…burnett’s was in retaliation for his own guy getting hit…twice…granted, throwing at the head isnt good…but heck, even peter gammons said the suspension was stupid.

        • Zack

          beckett’s throw was just an intentional as burnett
