CC deserves better than this.
This offense is pathetic.
This is just getting pathetic.
Pathetic. Why am I not surprised though? Here comes another sweep.
Remember when Pedro in 2004 said after another loss to the Yankees that he has to call them my daddy???? If the Yankees lose this game, Girardi might as well say the same thing.
they already are
was that changeup not high and outside??
I fucking HATE Manny Delcarmen.I hope we beat the living shit out of him
Aaaaand the word of the night is “pathetic,” heh.
Now CC knows how Johan Santana feels.
2 for 25 with RISP? Just pathetic.
this is why CC likes to bat. The man is a self-helper.
Venezualan? Fiery? Possessing a monstrous changeup? Not especially large? Hating Youkilis? Being a former Twin?
I said it before….isn’t a ball that bounces over the bag fair?
not against the redsox.
That ball was definetly fair. Bounced in fair territory before the bag then went over the bag. Fair Ball!!! Except at Fenway apparently.
thats what i thought, but nope. as long as it bounces foul down the line and the yankees are at the plate, it’s a foul ball.
Bad call or not, got to protect the plate. Hard to do when you are bailing out at you start your swing.
I know I will catch all kinds of shit for this but Matsui is done and is liability to this team. Just DFA him and pay him his money.
I never recall him pulling off the ball so much. The pitchers have to be blind to throw him a ball that he can get to.
Means his knee is worse than he is letting on. While gritty, it does no one any good.
O A K T A G
have no idea what that means
It means you said something monumentally stupid.
saying Matsui is a liability is monumentally stupid or you just don’t like it?
the letters still don’t add up to monumentally stupid.
Saying we should DFA Matsui is monumentally stupid.
So you would rather keep him on the bench to provide an ocassional hit but more times than not ground out or fly out? He is no value in the outfield? Sorry, just doesn’t make sense.
And who the fuck is going to DH aside from Matsui? Please, tell me who. You are aware that he is OPSing .813 right now, right? You really want the Yankees to eat 13MM bucks because Matsui had a bad night? Come on.
Holy shit is every solution DFA? Jesus christ this is unbelievable. Even Lanny isn’t saying as stupid stuff today!
No, just with matsui. Sorry, never been a big fan and hate to see him look so foolish at the plate.
Why is it that everyone give up on the Yankees as soon as they’re behind?
Because they have zero come from behind wins this season…
against the Red Sox that is very very true
Did YES take a look at that Matsui ball? The only measely reply NESN gave it sure looked fair.
YES doesnt have a replay with a K-Zone type chart. Pretty stupid if you ask me considering every other broadcast in baseball has one.
Not the third strike. The ball that was called foul.
It wasn’t an Ortiz homer so they wont replay it.
that ball was fair
Facebook please stop telling me to be friends with some weirdo named benjamin kabak
I wouldn’t DFA him – but Posada should be DHing tonight.
Or you could give a 37 year old catcher a night off in June
we will see some hip hip Jorge action at some point tonight…
With our best starter on the mound, we’re getting shut down by Boston’s 5th best pitcher. The baseball Gods are laughing at us. The Yanks are losing this game.
this is pa-….wait for it…-thetic. pathetic.
ay de mi
maybe they’re saving it the offense for papelboner??
Don’t let Damon get near the ball.
OAKTAG. This is based on one error and the rest of his caught flyballs don’t matter? I give up today.
IT WAS A JOKE.
Really then it would be a pretty stupid joke based on one error.
I thought it was funny, i was thinking the same exact thing.
OH NO! wait he caught it
yea yankees don’t seem to be getting any calls while the red sox get every call. we can’t with runners in scoring position we foul off pitches we should hit and swing and strike out on ones we shouldn’t. i wooudn’t be shocked if cc fallls apart here
So this is a payback from Offense to Pitching department. They are telling pitchers you sucked yesterday, today is our day.
Heh I actually enjoyed this.
Rewinding the DvR that Matsui ball definately went over the bag, shouldnt that be fair??
I love how YES doesn’t even take a look at it. Great job!
Nice of the yankees to increase Penny’s trade value. Even if this team makes the playoffs, they are going nowhere.
Yeah, remember that undefeated Patriots team that nobody could possibly beat in the playoffs? Me either
Arod and Cano need to wake up…
Can we stop freaking out about Brad Penny throwing 6 shutout innings? From all the whining that’s going on, you’d think Horacio Ramirez had just twirled a perfecto.
sabathia’s high fastball… same hieght as penny’s Strike 3 call on Matsui, except more plate… hmm
CC has definitely been getting squeezed compared to Penny
Graphic on NESN: 900th career meeting between these teams at Fenway. Record thus far:
Gol. 4 ties?
when it got dark back in the day?
Probably suspended games that never got finished.
Called because of rain after 5 and not necessary to continue?
The rules were different 100 years ago.
Cervelli is the freakin man. I love that kid.
strike 2… or not.
Hope Posada pinch-hits for Cervelli this inning.
It’s funny that it seems everytime this situation comes up and we all want Posada, Cervelli comes through
here we go
Leche delivering here
I hope the home plate umpire gets hit in the fucking nuts with a 94mph sabathia heater
what do you think, posada to pinch hit??
It’s a 1 run game. Use him in the 9th, if necessary.
I would like to see Justin Tuck take on Pedroia in a cage match.
Screw that I want to see Girardi take Pedroia on.
hahahahahaha that’s ridiculous dude
Pedroia the gritmaster flex FTW
Grit Gritner vs. Pedroia? I take Grit all the way.
cc deserves a w
OK, so looking at these responses, I can see my MLB.com feed is a good five minutes behind.
I apparently have something from Cervelli to look forward to…
You get to look forward to him hitting second this inning.
CALLED IT DUDE!!!
For the record, that hadn’t happened yet.
Unless you can see the future, of course.
the mlb.tv is always at least 1 batter behind, tonight it seems to be even more than that. I’ve learned to only check twitter between innings in my broadcast.
CC deserves a W and a bonus check.
If we get shut out again against Brad Penny Im boycotting the Yankees for two weeks!
That would include RAB, right? See, there is always a bright side.
Looks like you dont get your wish!
you should do it anyway.
Ive been playing this game for like 3 innings now.
Wow thats hard
Thats what she said!
i wish the home and 3rd base ump get run over by a bus after the game.
Driven by an angered Matsui.
Mmm…I bet their families don’t.
base hit for melky.
Here we go – Let’s capitalize!!!
Just hit it to One-Nut… Guy’s playing like he normally would without luck.
Wow, second pitch to Melky was in no way a strike. O well, he’s still on
Has got to be a bunt.
So Ken, do you bunt here? what about you John, do you bunt? Good time for a bunt. Number 9 hitter is up, he should bunt. Bunt the tying run over. It’s a fundamental play, bunting. What do you think Singy, time for a bunt?
if girardi calls bunt… and he did.
Ok, someone explain OAKTAG. I am missing how it means what Matt said it means when it is really a flexible thick paper like poster board.
Melky steal and den cervelli bunts.
did one betta
nice hit and run.
FUCK YES CERVELLI!!!
ATTA BOY CERVELLI!
CISCO!!! MELKY!!! CERVELLIFOR MVP/PRESIDENT/MANCRUSH
THAT’S WHY YOU DON’T BUNT!!!
Mike, that sounds like something Mike Francesa would say. Just because it works doesn’t mean that it’s a successful theory.
Besides there was still some small ball in there.
It’s not that it worked, it’s all the times bunting didn’t work. It’s been proven that you’re more likely to score more runs in an inning with a runner on first and no outs than with a runner on second and one out.
Did that seriously just happen….?
Chip Called it.
HOLY SHIT!!! that worked excellently!!
Youth shall be served !
Wow…that took serious guts by JG.
Youth is the answer!
now everyone who bitches and moans that it’s over can please leave.
I was about to rip Girardi for not pinch-hitting Posada and letting Cervelii bunt.
FUCKIN YEAH BABY!!!
And laughably we didn’t hit with RISP.
so this is what they meant by “billy martin without the baggage.” good call, joe.
Keep your fingers crossed everyone. Lets hope a) they can take lead and b) hold the damn lead!
someone said earlier that the law of averages would kick in… Hope they are right and that was it.
I am not turning off Enter Sandman…
I hope Girardi learned a lesson about not bunting every time there is a man on first
Of course Cervelli’s hit didnt come w/RISP. LOL
Should we bunt Jeet?
The Sox hurt themselves by playing in for the bunt this inning
have to score more here and let CC finish the game…don’t trust even MO right now…
93 pitches and 3 innings to go, not going to happen
93 is more liek 63 for C.C.
CC is at 93 pitches – so he can continue
Your being silly man. Rivera is fine.
Is Mo good for 2 if need be?
C.C. is going 8
In MO we Trust… don’t you use money?
another 93mph breaking ball, the YES gun is out of control
no sandman tonight. CC all the way.
I’d love to see a complete game
this ump has been consistently bad for everyone.
OMG I almost forgot. THE GREATEST BULLPEN OF ALL TIMES.
How are we hitting Manny del Carmen!?!?!?!?!? Duh guy could be a closah on anothah team!!!!!!
ietc. ive heard that so many times.
Same deal with Bard
Mike Francesa and Joel Sherman just threw remotes at tv….
what did jeter just swing at
damn, C’mon JD atone for your mistake!
Jeter are u serious u could move him to third.
Damnit Jeter. I mean fuck cant even hit a groundball to 2b or 1b Jesys Christ.
Man, I know! It so easy to hit the ball exactly where you want to! Man what a jerk!
I wish delcarmen tried to throw it there was nobody on the bag to throw it to.
Like I said earlier, lets hope they can take the lead here.
might as well have bunted Jeter
So the pitch before he grounded out, Jeter should’ve CRUSHED. Right over the damn middle.
Alright, who stole the real Derek?
How in the hell was that a strike?
Has anyone else noticed that Damon’s AVG is done to .288?
This should be the last time this ump ever calls a game behind the plate again
Damon going to hit the Pesky pole.
Damon Tex going to hit the Pesky pole.
Maybe Tex instead?
Has Michael Kay ever played baseball or does he just mooch of all the expertise of the great (not you flahrety) ballplayers he sits next to?
AXL has texted to me to tell you guys that he says we will not score again this inning.
sarcasm alert, or do you know him personally?
No he’s a close friend of mine
dude give it up the more u bring up his name the more stupid shit he says.
We have turned him into a RAB celebrity.
I hope he’s wrong!
alright, rally time!!
Oh Boy. This is it!!!!
Teixeira’s moment coming up.
i’ll take 3 tickets for the M-Tex flight at 9:40 departure.
are there any sane broadcasters? this guy on MLB network said Delcarmen just pitched around Damon…lol
I’m convinced that broadcasting is the easiest gig in the world. It’s next to being a weatherman. You can say whatever you want and be accountable for none of it.
look how excited posada looks
“COACH YOURE SENDING ME IN?!?!!?!!!”
Tex-Rod coming up! Lets Go Yanks!
no f’in way that was a strike
WTF how is that pitch a strike.
should be 2-1 c’mon ump
another atrocious called strike
Tex isn’t gonna see any good pitches. It’s time for A-Rod to get a hit
Just missed, Mike? Really?
should be 3-1 count.
same place as the curve…
well i hope it doesn’t come down to bases loaded 2 out and Cano up.
Aight. A-Rod time
A h & r would’ve gone badly there.
Its up to Arod.
we need you AROD…COME THRU!..COME THRU!!
Is Johnny Damon playing center field for the Sox again?
Let’s see if A-Rod can make himself useful.
Man, he’s hit bomb to center at least 2 times tonight. Bad brake.
That one just missed the sweet spot.
Hey, so, um, let’s fuckin’ go, Alex?
Come on arod
Thank goodness Swisher wasn’t on base. Let’s A-rod!
If arod swings at the first pitch this will be a bad AB
welp lets see.
I LOVE BEING WRONG
a single. just give us a single.
is it just me or is arod swinging at a ton of 1st pitches these days?
Arod due for a hit?
STEAL HOME CERVELLI! Can’t rely on hitters hitting with RISP.
that’s 2 balls well hit deep to CF by Tex
i feel like i haven’t seen a yankee home run over the green monster since 2005.
I keep flashing back to Monster homeruns hit by Yanks and then realize they were actually all hit by the Rays in the ALCS.
here comes the rain of course!
This rain would be perfect if giambi was at the plate
cmon RISP correction!
alright lets go
Arod moment. Come on Arod!
Hells yeah, bitches.
fuck yeah. that was ripped
FUCK YESSS!!! AROD!!!!
HELL YEAHHHHHHH AROD
This Rodriguez fella, he’s pretty good, no?
BOOM Red Sox BITCHES!!!
big hittttttttttttt righttttttttttt babiiiiiiiiii nicee.
A-GOD!! A-GOD!! A-GOD!!
but teh fans say hes on teh roids!
MOTHERFUCKING FUCK YES SDNJDNSDNASDASFDASDFFFAGFAVSGFD
Slap hands! Slap hands!
Hell. Fucking. YES.
Hot Shit!!!! A-ROD!!!
HAHAHAHAHA THANKS FOR CHALLENGING HIM
that was was just a bullet. if it had any height it would have been gone
worth the wait
i would’ve paid him 31 million a year, that’s just me
HE took steroids
hahaha I’ll let him know you give your warmest regards
sorry…don’t know how this posted…I thought I canceled it and reposted it more appropriately down below.
That was a thing of beauty.
YAY RISP CORRECTION!
I LIKE THIS UNCLUTCH OVERPAID DUDE!
That made me yell “FUCK YOU RED SOX!” at the TV uncontrollably!
We should release A-Rod (insert joke here).
maybe they shouldn’t have drilled him in the back?
UNCLUTCH Arod!!! Ow yeah!
the red sox bullpen is perfect. there must be a glitch in the matrix.
but Delcarmen could be closing for about 25 teams in the league!!!!
wonder what the red sox feel like… there’s no luck for them right now…
nah we earned this bitch
Now we need CC and perhaps Mo to end the game for us.
CC will go for the CG.
so the “Arod Sucks” people have now changed their minds
did they give Delcarmen a standing O? probably… right?
I almost forgot. THE GREATEST BULLPEN OF ALL TIMES.
MATY – response to your who will DH. You will have to find someone or Joe learns to mix with Swisher, Posada, Damon, Cabrera, bring up someone by also releasing Berroa or find a cheap one. Just because every team uses some over weight, out of shape, or old aged hack as a DH does not mean it has to be.
Sorry, but they have to figure it out. As far as eating 13 million, that is their fault for over paying, just like they over paid by 1 year too many for Posada; also include ________ fill in the blank.
Did anyone see what A-Rod was doing with the bat between the 5th and 6th pitches? NESN had a nice shot–and it is sure to end up on YouTube with a fine 70′s sound track.
Love your bat much, Alex?
This Red Sox bullpen isn’t so tough
