    New thread = homerun right?

  • Matt-Pitt

    I like the timing. Yanks are threatening, new pitcher, new thread. Lets do this.

  • Drew

    Mr. 3-2 is up, with The Melkman on deck. :)

  • John

    we gotta get at least one here

  • yankees=warriors

    Yes, but they’ve finally chased Price.
    Start working now, offense!

  • EvoLuTioN

    lets NOT help his 6 era.

  • John

    Mike:”It was 2-0, I walk away from the TV for 15 minutes and it’s 5-3? WTF?”

    I blame it on you

  • EvoLuTioN

    oh cmon swisher, 90mph……

  • Matt-Pitt

    Damnit…

  • Chip

    Well, that didn’t go so great

    Ahh fudge

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

      Ha.

      • Some call me…tim

        Reversion to the mean.

        Is that up or down right now? :)

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

          It all depends on what the starting point of the measurement is.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Yanks are winning this game. All they gotta do is keep the Rays at 5.

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

      And maybe we get another Dioner Navarro airmail throw into CF to help the cause along.

      • Matt-Pitt

        I’ll take it.

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

    Alex Rodriguez is a vacuum cleaner. He sucks up all the balls over there.

    Wait, that didn’t come out right.

  • Matt-Pitt

    I’m going to assume next inning that if Melky gets on, Matsui pinch hits for Cervilli. If he doesn’t, I would assume Cervilli hits for himself.

        My bad, my bad. Thats not the first time I have spelled it wrong too. For some reason, I always do that.

  • RichYF

    I’m convinced that we’re losing because Mike walked away from the television.

    Thanks Mike.

  • EvoLuTioN

    CMON C.C.!

  • EvoLuTioN

    PUT HIM AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Matt-Pitt

    Come on CC. You can’t walk him when you have him down 0-2.

    • Matt-Pitt

      Andddd he promptly makes up for it.

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

        Just like he drew it up in the playbook.

        • Matt-Pitt

          I underestimated CC’s game plan.

  • John

    Bad AB for CC

  • Jake H

    those last 2 balls were in the zone according to gameday. Terrible umpiring.

    • Matt-Pitt

      I’ll admit that CC has been getting squeezed all day but the ump got those 2 calls correct. They weren’t strikes.

    • Drew

      They didn’t look in the zone on gameday and they didn’t look in the zone on tv.

      • Jake H

        they were on espns

        • Drew

          Ahh, gamecast, on gameday they were up. They were good calls on the tv too.

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

    Way to go CC. C’mon, bottom of the order.

  • John

    I’ll take

    Well we get at least one more time through the lineup, I’m pretty confident that we can put up two against this pen

  • NHYankee62

    if we still had the big G that ball may be in LF!

    • John

      yea, Tex helps everyone. The infielders have said that they can make quick and aggressive throws because they know Tex will get them no matter what unlike with Giambi, they have to focus to make the best throw

      That was a waste of a minute and fifty-five seconds of my life.

      • Jay

        Not really…I mean Melky was agreeing to being into dudes…Til he realized he had a kid.

        • Drew

          You forgot, Melky, not so good at the English.

      i like the way you think!!

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

      Joba’s actually from Lincoln and not Omaha, but I applaud your effort.

      • Stryker

        i’ll still allow it since he technically didn’t say joba was from omaha!

    Where are you Axisa?

    Sit your butt down in front of the TV and stay there!

    Melky saving his magic? Hopefully he won’t have to ;)

    Well, here’s our chance!

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

    Aybar drops the ball.

    Baseball is an awesome, awesome bitch of a game.

    Alright…this is it. Now we make ’em pay.

  • Jersey

    That’s how rallies start.

  • Matt-Pitt

    What a break, haha… They must make them pay this time around.

  • John

    Woo-hoo! Now let’s make em pay…that was all Cervelli’s skill and grit and not luck

  • Drew

    No way we should lose a game with 4 errors on the opposing team. We got this shit.

    • Nickel

      Ugh…Bandbox my ass.

      • Nickel

        Ooops…that comment wasn’t supposed to go there.

    that was cool how nelson said no problem to aybar

  • EvoLuTioN

    here comes maddon’s over managing

    cmon yanks, make this idiot look like it

    wasn’t there a player who was such a bad fielder his nickname was “clank”?

    Nelson threw 87…how fast does Balfour throw?

  • Chip

    Jeter with a little cheap homer to right? (0-1)

    • Chip

      Damn, I was close on that one

  • NHYankee62

    Makes no sense with these player of the game polls…doing it in the 7th inning with the game yet to be decided.

    Just like having the fans vote for the All Star game, good intentions, but it’s pointless.

  • Drew

  • NHYankee62

    Get this big man a win…. nice job getting through 8.

    Giving up the lead is frustrating… but he’s battled through it.

      Fixed.

      • EvoLuTioN

        no, living and dying by the homer is never good

        • Drew

          except when it’s good.

          • EvoLuTioN

            i rather get like 3-4 successive hits

            • handtius

              i rather get like 3-4 successive homeruns.

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

              I’d rather have some of those 3-4 successive hits be homers.

              Homeruns = not a bad thing

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

          True.

          Requesting hard singles and doubles INSTEAD OF HOMERS, though, as you just did, is pretty silly.

  • Drew

    C’mon Rob, don’t try to do too much broski.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Nice at bat, Posada. Here comes the Cano at bat that will change the game.

  • EvoLuTioN

    lets go robbie.

    Cano is 4-15 with a homer and 5 Rbi’s against Howell

  • Drew

    OUTSIDE!!!

  • EvoLuTioN

    time for the MELKMAN

  • Stryker

    oh how i wish that was gardner on base and not posada. we’d have runners at the corners!

  • EvoLuTioN

    wait, swisher first :lol:

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

    Nice little piece of hitting there by Robbie. Hopefully Matsui is down in the cages taking a few hacks.

  • dkidd

    pinch run for posada?

  • NHYankee62

    Why no pinch runner for Po?

  • Drew

    Ugh.. I wish we coulda pinch ran.

  • John

    That was fukin ball

  • NHYankee62

    wayyyy inside come on ump!!!!!!

  • NHYankee62

    terrible call ump… gave him strike one!

    these umps are never held accountable for horrible calls.. no fines.. no suspensions… bunch of arrogant pricks!

  • dkidd

    love these at-bats. 0-2 and you just know it’s going 3-2

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

    Nick Swisher has more 3-2 counts this year than hits.

  • EvoLuTioN

    god, even if swisher can’t hit much. You have to LOVE this kids eye, simply amazing how many pitches he sees

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

    They should just have opposing pitchers throw 5 practice tosses before every Nick Swisher AB and just start the count at 3-2.

  • Drew

    MELKY BITCHES!!!!!!

  • dkidd

    amazing take

  • Jay

    Dare I say….

  • John

    I’ll take that

  • NHYankee62

    good call, tie goes to the baserunner.

    Nice job Swish.

  • EvoLuTioN

    MATSUI IS UP!

    LETS GO GODZILLA

  • Drew

    I like the gutsy call by Joe.

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

    Good move Girardi. Win this shit right now and you don’t have to worry about the pitcher batting.

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

      Plus, CC likes to hit.

      Win-win.

    • EvoLuTioN

      C.C. can bat.
      I’m not scared.

    • NHYankee62

      really? Matsui is hitting for Cervelli… as in for the catcher.

      Posada can’t move to catcher and Matsui the DH?

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

        Nope. Once you move the DH to a position, you lose it.

        • NHYankee62

          I still agree with the move though. I like the agressiveness.

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

        No. When the DH plays the field he must be replaced by the pitcher in the batting order.

  • Ivan

    That looked like a tie.

  • Jay

    I’m thinking I don’t like this right now…

  • EvoLuTioN

    i would LOVE to see C.C. bat LOL

    IN FOR C.C. BOMB

  • dkidd

    let cc hit!

  • handtius

    No DH…

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

      No big deal.

      • handtius

        son of a…wish they’d leave in CC.

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

          True, but in retrospect, CC wasn’t going to go 2-3 more innings, so he wasn’t likely to make it to his time up to the plate. It’s kinda moot.

    • handtius

      must win now.

    • Jay

      Baa

  • EvoLuTioN

    BOO!

    another gift call for the rays

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

    Ugh.

    Good call, though, HazMat went around.

  • EvoLuTioN

    I wanna see C.C. back out there, not mariano.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Come on Yanks. Hold em’ and they win it next inning.

  • Bob Stone

    Wanna see the replay – Matsui did NOT swing!

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

      He did.

      • handtius

        I don’t know..that’s a questionable call. Bat never went parallel with the plate.

  • fresh

    how many pitches does cc have? completely forgot after being caught up in the yankee comeback

  • Drew

    The pitcher will bat 9th now right?

    • EvoLuTioN

      yeah

    • Chip

      Yeah, shouldn’t be coming up since the Yankees will walk off in the ninth (0-2)

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

      I thought that the pitcher took the DH’s spot but apparently not.

  • Ivan

    Another Walk-off?

  • EvoLuTioN

    damn, why is mariano in here! i wanted to see C.C.
    only 101 pitches

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

      True, me too.

  • Drew

    Eh, I woulda kept CC in but can’t complain about Mo.

  • Drew

    Wow, he did not swing.

  • EvoLuTioN

    Matsui didn’t go at all.
    that sucks

  • fresh

    woah no chance he swung!

  • Pete

    Swell.

  • Chip

    Well, that was less than ideal

  • EvoLuTioN

    ugh, are you fucking kidding me?

    This is why C.C. should have STAYED IN THE GAME.

    GOD DAMMIT JOE

    • Drew

      Are you serious? lol C’mon dude.

    • Joey

      You need to take some Ritalin or something

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

      OAKTAG.

      CC could have very easily have given up that exact same triple had he stayed in.

      Fallacy of the Predetermined Outcome.

      • EvoLuTioN

        he could have, but he was already cruising in the game. he made ONE bad pitch to aybar, asides from that the guy was throwing another gem.

        He was loose, he was excited, he had the adrenaline.

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

          Regardless, Joe Girardi is not wrong for that move there. Mo presents the best likelihood of pitching a quality 9th (and possibly 10th) at that point.

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

    That was like, the slowest triple in the history of America. It just kept rolling.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Wow…

  • Drew

    Infield in boys. Let’s break some bats, Mo.

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

    Well that sucks. Damn you, Zobrist.

  • Chip

    Well, good thing we have the top of the lineup going next inning

  • NHYankee62

    How many fucking times does this have to happen today??? Take the lead/ tie the game.. .give it right back!

    FUCK!!!!!!!!

    BTW Not even close… TERRIBLE CALL UMP!!!!! that was a check swing by Matsui!

  • Chip

    Man, what is it with Mo and non-save situations?

    • V

      :headsmack:

      How many non-save situations has he blown?

      Please, link to the gamelogs.

  • Pete

    Picked a great day to suck, Mo. Honestly.

    • handtius

      sorry, but when is a good day for Mo to suck? After he retires?

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

    FUCK!!!

  • fresh

    zobrist and joe dillon?! really!?

  • EvoLuTioN

    welp

    Good job joe.

    C.C. was CRUISING and you put in Mariano who is never good in a tie game.

    • handtius

      seriously, this is Mariano Rivera.I wanted to see CC also, but this was not a bad move.

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Seriously? Your talking about removing a great pitcher for arguably a better pitcher.

      • EvoLuTioN

        as far as i remember, the splits between save and nonsave chances for MO last year was huge. He had a 3+ era iirc in nonsave

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

          He had a 3+ era iirc in nonsave

          Uh … that’s still pretty good.

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

            It was actually a 2.63 ERA in non-save situations in 2008.

            Meaning that Mo at his worst is still the best reliever the world has ever known.

          • EvoLuTioN

            it is, but thats not mariano good.

            Farnsworth has a 3+ era, would you throw him in the game?

            lol

      • handtius

        Better one inning reliever. Mo, as much as I love him, can not go 9 innings.

        • Arman Tamzarian

          That’s what I meant, more for the spot is what I was going for. Definitely not for the 9.

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

      You’re insane.

  • NHYankee62

    amazing.. Mo and CC can’t get Dillon out??? WTF???

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Yankee Killer, Joe Dillon

  • Chip

    Glimmer of hope, Tex will come up again in this game

  • Drew

    BOOO MO!!1!

  • dkidd

    we can still win this

    come on mo

  • Matt-Pitt

    I wish CC just stayed in this game…

    Second time this year the Rays score off Mo when the game is tied in the 9th.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Mo has to keep it 6-5… Yanks have the top of the order next inning and can def score 1 run.

  • Pete

    Just what we need — TWO teams in this godforsaken division that we can’t beat in a big spot.

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

      It’s June 6th. The last thing game is is a big spot.

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

        Furthermore, the Rays are currently up 3-2 on us for the year. That’s hardly a team we “can’t beat”.

  • NHYankee62

    I”m just as pissed as anyone about the Drays taking the lead…

    BUT lay off Mo. He’s the best there is, best there ever was, best there ever will be.

    If anyone has earned a pass, it’s him.

    Plus he’s been pretty good this year!

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

      Plus he’s been pretty good this year! lifetime

      Fixed.

  • fresh

    looks like its gunna be another game where the win or lose is going to land in the lap of arod…id bet he comes up with 2 man on, 1st and second 1 out.

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

    Nick Swisher >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Bobby Abreu

  • Kyle

    Abreu makes that catch right?

  • Chip

    That’s a double with Abreu out there

  • Matt-Pitt

    ::sigh of relief::

    Nice play, Swish. Big out here Mo, need you to get this one.

  • V

    Kyle Gibson diagnosed with a stress fracture – think the Yankees would take him as a Brackman type?

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

      I’m game. KLaw listed Gibson as one of the nine players who would instantly crack the top 100 prospects in the game list without even playing a single inning of minor league ball.

  • Drew

    DO you want to walk him? Nah, I’ll just get him out.

    • Drew

      Oh man. I’d rather have Mo go after this motherfucker.

  • dkidd

    do not pitch to the desperate housewife

  • Stryker

    valiant effort for the yanks today. hope we get some magic out of the top of the order in the bottom of the 9th

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Agreed, they don’t give up games easily.

  • Matt-Pitt

    Have faith. When Mo gets Upton out here, someone on the Yanks is going to cross home to tie it in the 9th. Hopefully someone else crosses it to win.

  • EvoLuTioN

    sonnanstine running?

    el oh el

  • V

    Tough day for Evan, lol.

  • John

    Pitcher pinch-runner?

  • handtius

    FUCK a duck.

  • Pete

    What

    the

    f*ck.

  • EvoLuTioN

    Mo doing his best to lose the game

    • handtius

      yeah, Mo wants to loose the game. He put money on it. seriously, just stop.

  • fresh

    right be4 that pitch im thinkin… dont stay outside on him and boom basehit

  • Chip

    Man, just not Rivera’s game

  • EvoLuTioN

    Oh god don’t call in Coke, he’s about to give up a moonshot to Crawford

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

      I want Phil Coke to get an out here, only partially because it helps the team.

      Mainly, I want him to shut you the hell up already.

      • EvoLuTioN

        what happened?

        LOL.

  • John

    Wow Mo, I still have faith

  • Drew

    Now this is bullshit. Live and die with Mo. Fuck taking him out for a matchup.

    • Stryker

      i highly doubt he took him out because of a match up. dude just blew the game.

    • Matt-Pitt

      Don’t wanna over work him though. He aleady gave up 2 runs, not like its a matchup where the game is still tied.

    • Jose

      Yeah lets leave Mo in until he is past 30 pitches. You really think this is a matchup move?

      • Drew

        I don’t know. Like I said, I live and die with Mo, I woulda bet the farm he’d get crawford out. If I’m wrong, I’m wrong, now we got Phil Coke giving up Mariano Rivera’s runners.

        • NHYankee62

          I would’ve left him in. It’s not like you have anything decent coming in after him.

          Poor little Phil Coke “still doesn’t know what his role is”.

        • Jose

          Save his bullets for another day. He didn’t look good out there so why keep him out? Who cares if Coke gives up Mariano’s runners. In my opinion keeping Mo healthy and ready for battle on another day is better then him staying in the game to try and protect his stats.

  • handtius

    not expected at all.

  • Stryker

    welp that’s the game.

  • YankeeScribe

    Game over

    • Matt-Pitt

      I wasn’t aware the Yankees don’t have another 3 outs to play with.

    • Chip

      You watching the same team as I have this season? They’re definitely capable of coming back from this

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

      WAS IT OVER WHEN THE GERMANS BOMBED PEARL HARBOR?!?!?!?!?!

  • Chip

    Rays RISP: 3-5
    Yanks RISP: 0-5

  • John

    im kinda scared about Coke here…

  • Charlie

    you’ve gotta be fucking kidding me MO. Way to blow the game.

    • Drew

      Boo him… Unbelievable.

      • pc69

        Booing is unnecessary but he is paid a lot of money to do a job that has been average as of late.

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

          Mariano Rivera, 2009:

          22.2 IP, 190 ERA+

  • dkidd

    game’s not over. remember who the rays closer is

  • fresh

    kind of on topic and off topic…. can we get melancon up here so he can get used to the big leagues and turn into our 8th inning guy by aug 1st if not earlier

    • Chip

      If Veras keeps it up, Melancon will be here soon

      • Charlie

        how do you do that crossing out the words thing? Cause i want to change that if to when.

  • Chip

    Wow Crawford just about got nailed reaching over the plate like that

  • handtius

    People giving Mo shite, need to stop. This is Mariano Rivera. This man has been our gift. As much as we give him god status, he is still a man and not perfect. So stop.

    • EvoLuTioN

      exactly, he’s a man, not a god. And he’s shown his “manliness” in nonsave situations more often.

      C.C. should have remained in the game.

  • EvoLuTioN

    God coke fucking SUCKS.
    and johnny damons NOODLE ARM IS LAUGHABLE

    • Mike Pop

      You’re laughable.

      • EvoLuTioN

        good, i like being funny

        • Mike Pop

          Funny in a pathetic sort of way is good, I guess.

      • Drew

        +1

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

    I knew that would happen. Coke had nothing to put Crawford away with.

  • Stryker

    game is really over now. this rays team is freakin’ pesky.

  • John

    2 runs fine but 3 runs seems kinda hard

  • pc69

    Bullpen is still the weak link. Cashman will need to get it corrected

  • DCR

    Phil Coke strikes again. Its like clock work with this scrub. And when did Mariano Rivera morph into Troy Percival?

  • Jay

    4 runs isn’t so bad.

  • Stryker

    how much are the rays gonna run up this score? jeeeesus.

  • EvoLuTioN

    sigh.

    go to bullpen, get shit on.

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

      It’s Mariano Rivera. We went to MARIANO RIVERA, and you’re complaining about going to the bullpen.

  • handtius

    This is unimaginable.

  • Drew

    Here come the Boo birds!…

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

      Fuck the Boo birds.

  • Chip

    And now I’m ready to call it

  • pc69

    well there is the fly smacking a windshield…splat!

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

    Okay, seriously, the ARod booted ball… it’s just not our day today, people.

    Oh well…

  • BigBlueAL

    Yanks will now be 0-3 at home vs Tampa. Which really is meaningless if it wasnt for all the shit talking Tampa has done about the new Yankee Stadium and the fact that with a pathetic lineup they put out there today they are lighting up the scoreboard doesnt make this game any easier to take.

  • Evan

    That was pretty terrible.

  • EvoLuTioN

    what a weird inning, who would have though Jorge would throw out a runner for the last out?

  • V

    Man, this was a solid game until the 9th. Now it’s going to take a walk, walk, walk, grand slam from A-Rod type win, lol.

    I didn’t want Sabathia pulled.

  • dkidd

    at the very least, let’s make them sweat a little

  • NHYankee62

    finally something good, Posada throwing someone out for the 1st time in a week!

  • Chip

    Can’t throw it any better than that but I think it’s too little, too late

  • John

    Yikes Mo’s ERA rose to 3.86

  • Charlie

    we really should have won this game. Too bad that our bullpen still sucks. If only Cashman wasn’t retarded, mark melancon or somebody else on the farm would be up here to replace the dead weight.
