Basketball is on….
or even worse, hockey
Get out of here with that, we’re not in Canada.
My disgust and frustration with this “Woe is me we’re cursed and suck now” segment of Yankees fans >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> My disgust and frustration with this poor showing by the Yankees thus far tonight
Can’t call them fans.
Don’t do that. They may be annoying, but you don’t get to decide who is a fan and who isn’t.
I’m not deciding. Their line of thinking isn’t fan-like at all. Granted they follow the team, I won’t acknowledge them as true fans. But I guess nonetheless they are fans.
Yeah, you were, and are, deciding. There’s no such thing as a True Yankee Fan, and you sure as hell don’t get to decide who is worthy of being called a fan and who isn’t.
“My disgust and frustration with this “Woe is me we’re cursed and suck now” segment of Yankees fans people who think they get to decide who is a “True Yankee Fan” and who is not >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> My disgust and frustration with this poor showing by the Yankees thus far tonight”
I think Axl is a Yankee fan.
I think he’s batshit insane and an annoying asstard, but I don’t think he’s actually not a Yankee fan.
It’s like the “True Yankee” garbage. Just really pisses me off.
Heh looks like my frustration about he game/fans got the better of me. I think I’ll learn to shut up.
Yeah… I’m pretty sure we’ve had this exchange before, you really need to cut it out with that stuff.
Actually no I do not recall.
Being a Yankee fan is my chosen form of entertainment. The most entertaining thing I get to watch is the Yankees beating the Red Sox in Fenway. We put up with insane prices at the stadium to support a 200 million dollar team because we want to watch the team win. When they get beat by the team I hate most, I get angry as hell. I am a customer and I want to see results. The product has failed to perform against the Red Sox. We are entitled to be pissed because we fork over tons of cash so this team will beat the snot out of boston.
You’re entitled to be pissed. You’re not the fans I’m referring to.
I’m disgusted with the Yankees spending 80 million dollars on AJ Burnett.
Is that allowed?
I’ve been waiting for him to sprain an elbow trying to pie someone.
Yeah, sure, it’s allowed. But it’s a little silly to be as mad as people have been about the deal tonight when he’s not even 20 starts into a five year contract.
Yep, four and a half more years of this.
It was a bad contract, he’s merely been reinforcing my pre-season beliefs.
You really think A.J. Burnett is as bad as he is tonight? Really? Come on, that’s ridiculous.
Of course you have a right to be disgusted.
My issue is not with fans upset that the team isn’t beating the Sox, or with fans upset that Player X was signed for too much money and isn’t that good.
My issue is with fans who think we can’t possibly win even though we’re in first place and then smugly trumpet our failures because they like being right more than they like seeing the Yankees not lose.
You just mean Axl right?
i believe tomko will get some keys out for us this year
+1, I think he’s going to stick.
Some keys of cocaine? He’ll get some keys of cocaine out of customs for us? That’s all I got.
i’m usually such a careful typist
he’ll get his keys out in order to unlock his car and drive to scranton?
starting today, when he holds down the sox as we storm back!
Ugh. sounds about right..
Is there a less likable player in the majors than Youkilis?
He’s part of the KKK
That’s not funny. Try harder.
Beckett? Ped? Pap?
The Red Sox hate black people.
The Red Sox = George Bush.
Field day for Mike F. tomorrow…His man crush on Youkilis and Beckett grows..
At this point, everything he’s said is valid in terms of the Red Sux owning the Yankees this season. I don’t know what the solution is, but it sucks losing to this team over and over.
I know it sucks but didn’t Yankees start 1-5 against them couple years ago and finished like 11-8 or something? I don’t buy the whole mental thing that if they meet later in the season it would be in Yankees head. If it was true Yanks would have never lost in ’04.
I am not giving up on this game yet though.
LOL big poopi is garbage.
As well as Beckett has pitched so far tonight, he’s arguably the most overrated pitcher in the majors.
If AJ Burnett had any decency, he’d throw a pie in his own face.
At least he can command that, as opposed to his fastball.
Well, only down 6 now,.
I remember a time the Red Sox caught up from 6 nothing in an inning to come back and eventually defeat us. It’s certainly possible for us.
We have 20 come from behind wins this season. Perfect night for 21.
My favorite things about the Yankees this year is that no game seems out of reach.
A STRIKE. My Mo what a novel concept
papi finally realizes he’s big sloppy this year.
The scary thing is that this Red Sox team still has some solid pitching coming up. Smoltz and Buchholz are only days away at this point.
I’ll see your Smoltz and Buchholz and raise you an Bruney, Marte, Nady, and Molina.
At 0-6, that rings pretty hollow.
Yeah, I’m terrified of Smoltz. 42 years old, coming off major shoulder surgery. Hold me. *shudders*
As for Buchholz, I’m not too worried. As great as his off-speed stuff is, he had to pitch backwards last time he was in the Show. Who knows if that has been corrected.
But teh no hittah!1
I’ll take Smoltz over Bruney/Marte any day of the week out of the BP.
That statement is moot, because Smoltz isn’t in the BP.
And, as far as BP pitchers go, over the past few years, if you took Smoltz over Bruney or Marte, you’d be wrong, because they latter two have been better bullpen pitchers.
John Smoltz is 42. There’s no way around that fact.
Funny. Mo is 40 his damn self, probably older. Any way of getting around that?
People who make ridiculous statements, as you just did, deserve ridiculous names. Grow up.
How much do you hope Buchholz is the Red Sox version of IPK: So tantalizingly good in AAA and not able to put it together at the Major League level?
It’d be nice, but Buchholz has much, much better stuff. He does have (had?) issues with his fastball and fastball command.
And he gets much hotter/sluttier women Erica Ellyson
If we’re evaluating pitchers by the attractiveness of their significant others, then Lima Time would still have a job in the big leagues.
I give up following this game. Hopefully they can still take 2 out of 3
hopefully they come out firing tomorrow.
Arod should have asked the sox fans if they wanted the ball before laughing at them, telling them they root for the wrong team, and taking the ball back to the dugout. Make a young red sox fan cry. Am i cruel? Maybe but do you blame me? It is Boston.
Where’s Shelley Duncan when you need him?
That’s a horribly, horribly unclassy move and I would not be happy with any player for any team doing that.
Boston fans surrender rights to fair treatment when they put on those stupid hats and jerseys. You think the Red Sox are classy? Far from it. The yanks are supposed to be better than that but in Boston’s case, doucheness is all they understand. You must treat them like misbehaved children because that is what they are.
So you’re saying act as they do? How would that make Yankee fans any different from Sox fans?
You’re not even kidding, are you. Yikes.
Have you ever tried to talk to a Red Sox fan about baseball? They are antagonistic douchebags. I try to avoid the subject because all any of them want to do is talk about Jeters sexuality and how much I suck at life because I like the Yankees. The best way to deal with them is to treat them like pathetic misbehaved children.
The Sox fans I’ve come across in my life are generally not like that.
Thats good to hear. I always knew that there must be a few good rational ones but I’d never met one before.
Fuck, they’d be talking about it on ESPN for the next three decades.
“Remember the time ARod teased those poor Red Sox fans in the stands? What a baby-raper.”
Who cares what ESPN says. They already say Arod is a baby raper. Yeah, Roids, big deal, nobody cares any more. Yeah, he makes tons of money, yeah, he bangs strippers and screwed over his family by cheating on his wife. It doesn’t matter. Everybody already hates him so why not make a few little Boston douchebags cry?
Because I don’t want us being douchebags just because they’re douchebags.
That’s lowest common denominator. Screw that.
Red Sox fans are like North Korea. Being nice doesn’t seem to work. Sometimes in my opinion, its better to be a douche.
Sometimes in my opinion, its better to be a douche.
We have a difference of opinion, then.
thats the beauty of america isn’t it?
Detached from reality? Maybe.
Undernourished and with their border landmined? Not so much.
The North Korean people might be malnourished and locked in, but their dear leader is the douche i refer to. He is the one in control. I feel sorry for the north korean people but Kim Jong Il is a lunatic.
I’m never giving up, never surrendering!
I can’t believe they shortened games to 4 innings. I figured I would’ve heard something about that.
It’s over. The Yankees will never win again. We can’t compete with the big bad red sox. They are just better.
Jesus. Some of you sicken me.
What they’re saying is so Dorian.
(someone please get that reference. no one has yet.)
That’s all I got, “That’s so Rocco”
I don’t why our team’s effectiveness is no longer judged by W-L but merely by games won or lost against the Sox. Especially when we’ve taken series against teams that have beaten the Sox.
It’s all because of that fat fuck who drinks diet coke. My Mo, does anyone else see the irony in that. It’s like Oprah with a tread climber.
Well what the fuck else can go wrong. Just found out a friend has cancer in the brain, the Yankees are losing, and everyone on this blog become a fucking asshole when people gripe about the Yankees, people in general are assholes, and like my friend the good ones get it in the ass while losers survive.
wow dude….real sorry to hear that…i lost my best friend to a brain tumor when he was just 20 years old…it’s going to be a tough journey, but I sure hope everything turns out ok for your friend…best of wishes to him and his family…
try to be strong for your friend, fuckin cancer sucks, your friend will need you, best of luck to your friend
Strike 3 to Melky sure looked outside.
Andy Pettitte is a pitcha!!!!!!!!!
The smile from the Slade heathcott pick has faded.
Really? We need to see 2003 World Series highlights?
Good to see Cano showed up to work tonight for the Yanks.
I hope they pitch Robertson tonight. Something also tells me that Wang will be outstanding tomorrow.
I’d rather have Robertson pitch in a close game. I feel like he needs to be broken into higher leverage situations.
Girardi doesn’t unfortunately.
Wang is also on a pitch count tomorrow… probably 80-90
Dang, I thought we were going to have a 123 inning.
Both sides of this argument should calm down. No, its not the end of the world that the Yankees are probably losing this game. At the same time its perfectly fine to get frustrated at the Yankees looking inept against the Red Sox. This series is a good opportunity to add to a division lead. Instead, Burnett was awful and the Yankees are getting one hit. At least Beckett is at 87 pitches.
Probably? We have 4 innings to go and a propensity to comeback.
Nobody who’s been complaining about the actions of other fans is complaining about the actions of every fan that’s frustrated. Most fans here are expressing their frustration in normal, rational, sane ways.
It’s a loud and annoying but small minority acting like fools.
Have we ever started 0-6 against the Red Sux? I don’t even get how this is possible. Mind boggling.
My first response: Not sure, probably not.
My second response: It doesn’t really matter, now, does it?
No it doesn’t matter in the standings. But it is extremely frustrating to see our team play well and then run into the Red Sox and we turn into a AAA team.
Nice catch, Swish.
Let’s take all the positives we can out of this game.
I’m surprised he’s in LF, though, I figured Joe wouldn’t take him out of his RF comfort zone.
I guess we don’t want Melky playing the big wall.
Nick Swisher can play every position on the field at once.
and announce at the same time too
Hey look on the bright side we will get to see the greatest bullpen to ever grace a baseball field.
On another note, this has been an extremely sloppy game from the yankees. It just seems like one of those rough nights. The rough night just happens to be against the Sawkx. Anyone wanna tell me what Francesa leads with tomorrow.
Well, if the eighth inning is a rough one…
WTF. At least make them work fellas!!!! 2 outs on 3 pitches!? WTF.
The worst part of that is that Beckett gets a free strike, because there’s no way Tex can swing at the first pitch.
1 game – Beckett was great. If we’re going to have shitty starting pitching good to get it out of the way. In some ways better than losing a game 2-1.
Anyways, I still think we won’t leave Boston behind in the standings.
A nice plus for tonight could be a good showing from Veras… positives, it’s all about the positives.
How about a positive being a win? God, everyone throwing in the towel with the way this team has performed this year is pathetic.
Dude it’s not pathetic. It’s realizing a pretty good starter brought his A game and another didn’t. No big deal we’ll get them later or if by a huge stretch of amazing luck we come back great… but get ready to move on if it doesn’t happen.
It seems as if Beckett left something on Flahrety’s chin.
Balls? 8=====D ——> (0>:}
How many balls have been thrown tonight?
I sneezed and that inning was over…
This thread >>>>> last thread
The difference, of course, is that people are venting their frustrations here, while the last thread was full of doom & gloom. I hope people can look at both threads and see the difference.
My heart just dropped.
Is Beckett really that good tonite or are the Yanks that bad?
Beckett is really really good.
The desire to line one up the middle off his douchebag face is so strong, they totally screwed up their approach to hitting.
Tip your cap the loser did a good job. He’s been hot.
He’s a good pitcher with great stuff. Shit happens.
It’s definitely not easy to see Beckett having such a good night when Burnett struggled so much, but it’s not an apocalyptic event for the Yankees season.
I desperately want Veras to drill Youkledick in the kneecap or elbow. Something that will hurt like hell and make him sit for a few days. Does that make me a bad person?
Youkilis made an out? Is that allowed?
I vote for Jorge to call a team meeting after this one and rally the troops. They can’t walk away from this trip down 8-0 on the season. I understand we’re only 60 games in, but this is quite possibly the team we will be battling for the AL East title.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
I vote for Jorge to call a team meeting and tell the guys, “Hey, guys, we don’t need a team meeting, we’re really fucking good and no loss, even one against the Sox, should make us freak out to the point where we need a team meeting.”
Yea, you’re right. No worries. Bring no pitching to Boston, bring no hitting to Boston. No worries at all. Let’s just keep the same attitude and game plan we’ve been using against them all season. Excellent.
A bad outing by Burnett doesn’t mean that Wang and Sabathia are instantly going to suck. Relax.
Beckett had a fantastic game tonight. Let’s give the dude some credit.
You are aware that teams often have the right “attitude and game plan” and still lose any given game 7-0, right?
Being 0-6 against the Sox doesn’t mean something’s flawed in our approach or preparation. It means we lost 6 games. That’s all it means.
0-8 would suck, but it’s not even 0-6 yet. Besides, you’re forgetting this is a good team.
(Although I’m not thrilled about Wang pitching in a Little League field tomorrow, but who knows?)
While I’m sure that wasn’t intentional, I sure hope it stings.
Why hit bay when hitting Youkilis or Pedroia is so much more satisfying.
Slower: Mike Lowell, or Jose Molina?
Even factoring in the higher wind drag coefficient from Lowell’s gritbeard.
Sorry guys, I know you all missed me. I had piano lessons. What did I miss? Just a lot more of “I told you so’s”? lol
Is there anything worse than a Bostonian.
Nope. They think Boston is better than New York. Its the worst inferiority complex in the world. Pathetic bunch.
no more beckett
Awww, look at Ortiz going the Charlie Brown walk. I can hear the music in my head even.
The Greatest Bullpen to ever grace mankind.
Unfortunately their stats are pretty impressive. Id sure take their pen over our pen any day.
4 HR’s for the Phillies vs Johan, plus Ryan Church went deep into the apple in straightaway CF. Citi Field = Bandbox!!!!
What was Beckett’s pitch count?
93 i think
93. To be fair, when you have the best bullpen of the modern era, sometimes you have to pull the starters early to keep the ‘pen fresh.
Can we please beat Delcarmen up for a long inning and a few runs so he’s unavailable for at least tomorrow?
Problem with that is that Delcarmen is damn low on their pecking order.
Pretty surprising that Beckett gets pulled.
A-Rod’s injury has made me overreact a lot. Whenever he gets fooled or swings and misses, I wonder if it’s due to favoring the hip, him being in pain, etc etc.
I tend to wonder the same thing
a-rod looked pretty bad at times in years past, well before the hip problem, i think he guesses alot, an when he guesses wrong, it doesnt look good
Delcarmen looks extremely stupid in his Gameday photo. What dumb facial hair. Liner off his face? Plz?
Damn, thought Kotsay was going to misplay that.
Damn, just one of those days. Hardest hit ball goes pretty much right to Kotsay.
Was it just me or did Pudge Jorge call a ridiculous amount of fastballs for AJ tonight
Swisha blast pleaseeeee
The sound you hear is Lane Meyer’s heart breaking. The Giants selected Tommy Joseph–but my reason for posting is that, in showing video of Joseph, I swear I have never seen a slower runner in all my life. I would’ve thought it was slow motion, except his legs and arms were pumping like some kind of cartoon character–he just wasn’t moving otherwise.
Why is it every single team out there can beat the Red Sox at least once but the 2nd best record in baseball New York Yankees?? Do they just have the perfect compilation to beat up on us continuously?
Beckett had a great game, Burnett had a shitty one. That’s why the Yankees are in a position to lose tonight.
Agreed. But who called it from the beginning? Everybody called me “Crazy” and then began to throw personal insults at me because I saw something others didn’t. Pretty good deal.
[ facepalm ]
Now Tommie. I don’t think Matt deserves a facepalm for that comment. You didn’t believe me either. Nobody did.
Not everybody has this gift. It’s hard to come by. But try to embrace it next time. You get nothing accomplished trying to fight super powers.
Only 2 innings left… C’mon guys
I really never thought I dislike that many Red Sox, but FUCK DO I HATE THOSE FUCKERZ. I’m a North Carolina basketball fan and I was always say that I hate Duke basketball players way more then Red Sox but everytime I see one of them I think of doing something so horrible to them. I would urinate in their cornflakes. FUCK I HATE THEM DAMMIT DAMMIT DAMMIT
take a couple of deep breaths, lets get them tomorrow
The Yanks didn’t even need to bring their bats to the plate tonite…
I love Posada’s mask toss.
Why are they still showing the radar..
Veras looks surprisingly non-shitty thus far.
Naturally, as soon as I say that… ugh.
spoke too soon.
are u sure about that ?
you spoke too soon
The scary thing about Veras in mopup duty is that he may throw together a few scoreless outings and be back setting up.
(Although I hope the Yankees wouldn’t do that until he can show an improvement in his command)
As I’m typing, Nick Green goes yard. Thanks, Veras.
No, he’s basically pitched himself into the LaTroy Hawkins zone already. This appearance is prime example of that.
He’s killin’ time.
The thing with Veras is that he’s always been hittable, despite having above average stuff. Although like I said, I would imagine the Yankees don’t throw him back into the setup role unless he can suddenly greatly improve his command (and show that that’s a real improvement)
I doubt Veras really gets back into a high-leverage setup role at this point, even if he starts pitching well.
Girardi tends give the guys he trusts every opportunity to right themselves, and then, when they don’t and he moves them to the back of the pen, they don’t ever come back in the trusted zone.
It would take Mo-level dominance for Veras to leapfrog Bruney, Marte, Aceves, and Coke in the pecking order.
Would it be unethical for me to say if they dropped a bomb on Fenway Park I would give a Papelbum like fist pump?
Veras, if Posada is hurt . . .
…and now Posada gets hit in the throat with a foul ball, awesome
i really wish it was hughes tomorrow instead of Wang.
I can’t stand watching Jose Veras pitch..
Seriously, Nick Green? Really?
Boy, it’ll be hilarious for the Sox when he comes crashing back to Earth.
Him and Ramon Ramirez.
Everybody has been saying this for months now. WHEN is this suppose to happen?? I think they’ll still be happy with SEVERAL productive months out of the two of them. Lowrie is supposedly coming back around August (for whatever that’s worth)
Because you dont expect 4 relievers to have eras around 2.25 all year long, it just doesnt happen.
Green is a horrible SS, almost as bad as Lugo.
Exactly…which makes all of it together not make any sense at all. Imagine if Ortiz actually had been hitting all year like he used to?
Our bullpen is the antithesis of Boston’s bullpen.
The Sox won’t even deign to dip into their pen for another reliever?
When it rains…it certainly pours.
But when Wang comes out and pitches ineffectively like I’ve always stated. Make sure you blame me and launch more personal insults my way to make yourselves feel better about it all.
It’s kind of like if Beethoven started playing piano and people were upset about it and started hurling personal insults at him because of it. lol.
Oh, so that’s what you do for a living? I must admit…I was kind of curious…lol
It would be like if beethoven started playing the piano but only played the mexican hat dance and everybody wanted the piano player to die. Then it would be similar.
Yeah, the only difference is I have a gift. I said that Burnett looked shitty immediately and everybody thought I was crazy and a jerk for saying what I saw. Then I turned out being right and everybody got even MORE upset and angry. Including yourself.
I know it’s hard to admit somebody else is right…especially when you “vocally” disagreed with him and called him childish names. But it still doesn’t change the fact that he was right. And in this case, “he” is me. And the person who underestimated greatness…would be you…and mostly everybody else in here.
No, the difference is you THINK you have a gift. What you actually have is delusions of grandeur.
Hence, you’re a megalomaniac.
Please stop. You’re playing his game, and since he makes the rules to his game, he wins.
Upon further reflection, I tip my cap to Axl. He has EVERYONE going.
Fine, you got it.
I have patience for a lot of things, but not megalomania. My bad. I’ll bite my tongue.
But it’s not megalomania. It’s an act. He wants to elicit these types of responses. He’s laughing his ass off at his computer. He knows what buttons to push, and pushes them repeatedly.
I quit commenting on the game thread for a good hour because I was ashamed that I fell for it too.
You’re right, it’s an act. But it is megalomania. Axl’s not that good of an actor for there not to be a root of megalomania and paranoia at the root of all of that.
I think he is. I think he vented some frustration with Burnett, saw everyone piling on him, and knew exactly what to do to piss everyone off.
I have no idea what the guy’s like in real life, but I know that he knows how to push people’s buttons.
When guys like you who have something to contribute quit commenting, that’s a victory for the trolls as well. Don’t let stuff like that bug you so much, my friend. You’re better than that.
You know what a real life megalomaniac does?
Go on internet blogs and feign super-arrogant ignorant genius just to try and annoy people.
Megalomaniacs push buttons just to delight in pushing buttons. Megalomaniacs piss people off just to watch them get pissed off.
Axl either seriously has mental problems, or he likes fucking with people by pretending he has mental problems, which is a classic symptom of actually having mental problems.
EIther way, he’s one seriously demented little crazy fucker.
Sorry Tommie. But as smart and megalomaniacal you actually are…the answer is none of the above.
Unfortunately, my frustrations pissed a lot of people off when I first got here…and I’ve been cordial at times too..but as soon as I say even the littlest thing…people jump all over me because they already have this reputation of me or something…so even if I make the lightest comment…if it even has a HINT of negativity…it’s pig pile time. Everybody jumps all over me regardless. So instead of going back and forth like a child with insults, which gets absolutely nothing accomplished, I choose to go another route.
But you people hold the key though. If you want to get on my case and start a crusade against me for doing barely anything at all…that’s your problem. I can be quite cordial as most of you have seen before. But once everybody starts tag teaming and ganging up on me because of some insignificant thing I notice…the rest is your fault.
I never start it. I don’t come on here trying to piss anybody off. I say something and people piss me off…so I retaliate in my own way (without use of insults). I apologize if it riles you up even more.
So me noticing something legitimate (in this case Burnett sucking literally immediately) and YOU insulting me instead of believing me…somehow this makes me a megalomaniac…
Man, I’d hate to see how you guys treat other people with super powers…
its a bird, its a plane………..
You may be insane.
can you give me the lottery numbers for tomorrow ?
Which state? It’ll take some time to thumb through them all…
That AB Melky just took looked just like the ones Melk and Robby were taking in August last year. Those I don’t really give a fuck AB’s. There the same AB’s that made me want to get rid of both of them.
Yeah, Melky doesn’t give a shit.
That’s not what I’m saying. He just kinda gave away an AB. I hate to reference the old yankee teams but it’s the reason they were so good. Even when guys like Tino and O’Neil were old they took great at bats everytime they stepped in the box.
o’neill pretty much NEVER gave away an at bat
lets start a rally.
Rollins just straight ran through Alex Cora to keep the game alive. Great play.
And Dobbs fucks it up by striking out looking.
Hey, we get a “good” reliever!
Ramon Ramirez gets one of the guys who notoriously doesn’t hit into a DP to hit into a DP. Great.
That baffling .171 BABIP rears it’s ugly head again.
I was going to post that he induces groundballs, but according to Fangraphs, he has a 36% GB% and a 47% FB%.
He also has a HR/FB% of 2.9.
Maybe there is a correction coming.
That was a relatively well struck ball by Damon, too. A few feet either way, and it’s a hit or a force, not a DP.
Two on base, top of lineup, only one out.
I would love to see our offense heat up here like we know they can late in the game.
whats with the my9 channel and sucking?
well they are doing better than they do on fox, i hate to remind us of 22-4
its not your tv its the yankees.
Argh. What rally?
yay that was such an uplifting moment.
Mets and Red Sox win…
Man, you are very defeatist and depressing. You must be very young.
Huh? Yeah, because when I think of little kids running around and playing with out any responsibilities what-so-ever…”depression” usually comes to mind. LOL
Johan gave up 5 runs, he sucks right?
He sucked tonight, sure. I don’t recall saying that Burnett plain sucked all the time. I recall noticing that he sucked tonight right away…and everybody banding together to start a crusade against me regardless of me being right.
Even though that DP has reduced me to broken shadow of my former self, there is a part of me glad that at least Jeter can’t be ragged on for it.
John Murphy, C, #76.
Now, that’s something to be frustrated with. We shoulda went big, we went small.
When it rains…it pours.
Too bad you didn’t “call it”.
Or, am i wrong, you did “call it” and we just didn’t listen, because you’re a genius who’s got a gift and we’re just too stupid to know it?
I didn’t call it, no. But I was thinking it. Next time I’ll give you a heads up. Keep a notebook handy in your man-purse
Keep a notebook handy in your man-purse
“The scouting consensus seemed to be that Murphy had risen to the top of the pile of Florida prep catchers by the end of the season, after an amazing spring playing for the IMG Academy in Bradenton. Murphy hit .627 with 11 home runs in 102 at-bats, rapping 34 extra-base hits overall and striking out just four times. That built off a strong summer and fall performance, as Murphy starred for the Florida Bombers during Connie Mack play and the World Wood Bat tournament in Jupiter, Fla., in October 2008. Murphy’s bat attracts most of the attention, as he has a short, sharp righthanded swing that generates good bat speed and plate coverage. Scouts grade his hit tool ahead of his power, though he’s expected to produce average power with wood. He’s also athletic, having made a shift from outfield (and occasionally third base) to catcher. He’s shown he’s more than capable of handling catcher, showing plus arm strength, solid receiving ability and a quick transfer. The Miami recruit has intelligence and makeup needed for the position, as well, and had hit his way into supplemental round consideration.”
I love Dave Robertson’s curve ball so much.
Kevin Youkilis does not.
There’s nothing worse than watching Youk at bat when you have a stomach ache.
Nice show out of Robertson so far.
I’m assuming this is pre-triple to the Canadian?
Eh, so it goes. He’s human, it’s a blowout, he Ked the first two guys.
He faced Drew-Youkilis-Bay-Lowell, only gave up one hit, and didn’t allow a run.
I’ll take that inning 10 times out of 9 from any reliever.
Ha, yeah. As soon as I hit post, Bay hit that triple. At least he didn’t give up a run.
I wonder when Girardi will give him another shot in a close game? He seems so dominant in non-close games.
Let’s start with a run. Go from there.
I would take a beating of Bard as consolation.
Oh, hey, Daniel Bard. Let’s see what he’s got.
He’s got the perfect Sox face. Ugh.
The Red Sox definitely have a knack for developing players who look like they should be bad guys on primetime dramas.
God fcuking damn it. Can we show anything at all? One fcuking run for God’s sake?
first time we’ve been shut out all year, last team to do so
Goofy looking fucker throws gas. 99, 98, 100, 98 to A-Rod.
what a disgusting game. Glad i didn’t watch it, but I’m not overly thrilled with the yanks’ first draft day either. They did alright.
Bard does the Papelbon face, too?
Could this team really be more unlikeable?
FUCK YOU A.J. BURNETT. FUCKIN SHAME, YOU LOCATE PIES BETTER THAN YOU LOCATE FASTBALLS.
that gun is bad its worser than the yes its imposible to throw a 98 mph changeup.
it is the YES gun
Fist pump. classy. Guess who ate shit tonight besides the Yankees?
I said the same shit last night. We generally own Beckett in the regs. watever…
Eh, we lost.
That curveball was 100mph! At what point does YES and Co. buy a fucking radar gun that works? I don’t know if I should be as pissed about it as I am but it REALLY pisses me off.
It is sad, it seems like they’re oblivious to the radar gun.
Oh 98mpg curve? impressive pitch
2 hits? Really???
Really. More than one but less than three, it is in fact, 2.
I know most of you like to make fun of the Red Sox, but Im sorry their bullpen is pretty fuckin nasty.
2 months in.
No one said it wasnt, but are they going to keep a 2.57 bullpen era all year long?
A correction is due….maybe it will correct itself tomorrow!
I mentioned Ramirez’s .171 BABIP.
Okajima’s also benefited from a .230.
Well that was a shitty night…..
Let’s turn it around tomorrow, some good draft picks and a victory!
So..that was bad.
Win the next 2 and all is well
First shutout of the season has to come against these bastards. Fcuk.
Hey, I take it as a plus that it took until June for someone to shut the Yankees out.
You’ve used that reply at least twice today. You’re losing it. You suck. Oh my god how could RAB sign you to a five year deal? Jesus Christ this is gonna be a horrible decision.
On a plus note, Axl “called it” that I’d use that reply again. He so “called it”.
Tommie, you give me too much credit. I know you think so highly of me…but even us immortals make mistakes you know. By the way, what’s it like down there? Up here on this high pedestal…I never can really get a clear view lol
Pathetic showing by the Yanks, we just can’t seem to beat this team. AJ Burnett is wild and overrated, and the yankees pounded the Red Sox for TWO HITS. TWo fucking hits!! Thats not how you win ballgames.
Hey, what happened to the NY symbol that indicates whether a comment has been read or not? I hate fucking Fenway!
Off today cuz of the draft.
This game was a travesty. It was a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.
I can’t wait to hear what Burnett says. He’s gonna be pissssssed.
Zach McAllister of A.J. Burnett. Who yu got more confidence in right now?
I mean when you see the guy on an every 5th day basis you understand why people clowned us for that contract. The guy has no command and he is 30+ years old. I won’t kill cashman for it because I even endorsed it, but watching this guy all the time is frustrating as hell. How are 30 years old with no 3rd pitch? As of right now I loathe him the most of any player on the yankees. With that type of stuff he should be second to none in MLB but the guy has yet to attend a mid-summer classic. Doesn’t that say something?
His lack of all start appearances mean absolutely nothing
Coaches select the Pitchers. That says something to me about a guy who just got 80 mil over 5 years. When you have the best stuff, I just don’t understand why a coach, one time, doesn’t think you are worthy of an All-Star appearance.
No, not really.
Using AS appearances (or any award, for that matter) just isn’t really a good way to evaluate a guy. Every year, there’s a good 5-6 guys who make it that make everyone scratch their heads, and 5-6 guys who don’t make it that deserve it.
The fact that he’s got no appearances doesn’t mean he never deserved an appearance.
It hasn’t been pretty thus far.
It’s early, though. A.J. Burnett pre-ASB 2008 was fairly worthless. A.J. Burnett post-ASB 2008 was one of the three or four best pitchers in all of baseball.
He can look like crap for months and then be Don Drysdale in his prime for months.
some will call this a panic move, but i don’t care:
slade heathcott should lead off tomorrow
Unfortunately, Heathcott’s on the 15-day DL now.
Game 7 Baby!
Sorry the hockey game was better to watch than the game tonight.
FYI hockey? Don’t worry, you’ll never get it
What’s funny is that AJ Burnett was 5-0 with sick numbers against the Red Sox in his career…especially at Fenway…then IMMEDIATELY when he puts the pinstripes on…they own him. They batter him around.
Make any sense? Of course not…
Really nervous about Wang tomorrow.
I’m very nervous about him too.
Watch him give us 8 innings and give up only 1 run tomorrow. All our nervousness will be for nothing (I’m really hoping this scenario happens).
Sergio Mitre had a nice game for SWB tonight: 6 3 1 1 1 7
Montero DH’d for Trenton: 1-4 with a walk
WDLR tok the loss, 6 6 4 4 2 3
Hector Noesi w/a tough luck loss for Charleston: 8 6 2 2 2 7
I think we’re going to see Mitre sooner than later.
Ladies and gentlemen, pinch hitting for Mike Axisa, Matt ACTY/BBD!!!
Pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon… Manny Mota!… Mota!… ota!… ta!…
I’m also Italian so I guess it makes the transition a little easier, right?
+1 on the Airplane quote. That’s two times you’ve pleased me with movie quotes today.
I completely forgot that AJ hasn’t pitched in 7 days. I guess that explains the lack of control.
AJ on 7 days. Wang not being 100%. Better get prepared for a 0-8 against the Red Sox start…
Fortunately for you…most of you don’t have to listen to it. Unfortunately for me, I hear it everyday. Hence my frustrations and venting…
0-8 would mean CC loses on friday against Brad Penny.
We can and will win tomorrow.
On a brighter note, David Robertson’s ERA is now 1.86 and he is striking out close to 12 per 9
Like I said, facing Drew-Youkilis-Drew-Bay and only allowing one hit and zero runs is a fantastic outing for a reliever. D-Rob was the lone bright spot tonight.
I just looked at his stats on baseball-reference and this guy is phenomenal when he gets regular work.
The dude has crazy good potential (ridiculous upside?). I hope as the year goes along and going into 2010, Robertson is a go to guy.
He won’t cause Girardi for some reason trusts Phil Coke more.
So who does this Heathcott guy compare too? They said the #2 pick the Mariners took compares to Darren Earstad…I mean he was good…but #2 worthy…after a guy like Strasburg? I would have expected better. And if the #2 guy is Darren Earstad…then our guy we picked must be like the 2nd coming of Ricky Ledee or something haha.
Who said Ackley compares to Darrin Erstad? I’m pretty sure his ceiling is much higher than that.
One other important outcome from tonight’s game. We have Hughes and Aceves ready to rock if Wang struggles.
Phil Coke, post-blown save against the Twins on May 16th:
8 appearances, 7.2 IP, 31 batters faced, 4 hits, 5 walks, 5 strikeouts, 3 runs, 1 homer, 3.52 ERA, .167/.300/.292 against
And almighty MO
From PeteAbe. I guess there’s a first time for everything.
The last time a team from Boston started the season 6-0 against a team from New York was 1912 when the Red Sox won 14 straight against the Highlanders.
Let’s not get crazy here. If we take one out of the next two we leave in a tie–no blood.
