Game 60 Spillover Thread II


CC deserves better than this.

Categories : Game Threads


  1. Jersey says:

    This offense is pathetic.

  2. Jake H says:

    This is just getting pathetic.

  3. Andrew says:

    Pathetic. Why am I not surprised though? Here comes another sweep.

  4. BigBlueAL says:

    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.

  5. Double T says:

    was that changeup not high and outside??

  6. teix is the man says:

    I fucking HATE Manny Delcarmen.I hope we beat the living shit out of him

  7. Jersey says:

    Aaaaand the word of the night is “pathetic,” heh.

  8. Matty Ice says:

    Now CC knows how Johan Santana feels.

    2 for 25 with RISP? Just pathetic.

    • Reggie C. says:

      this is why CC likes to bat. The man is a self-helper.

    • Accent Shallow says:

      Venezualan? Fiery? Possessing a monstrous changeup? Not especially large? Hating Youkilis? Being a former Twin?

  9. I said it before….isn’t a ball that bounces over the bag fair?

    • BIG BOY says:

      not against the redsox.

    • Bleakley says:

      That ball was definetly fair. Bounced in fair territory before the bag then went over the bag. Fair Ball!!! Except at Fenway apparently.

    • giselle says:

      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.

  10. pc69 says:

    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.

  11. Chris says:

    Why is it that everyone give up on the Yankees as soon as they’re behind?

  12. MattG says:

    Did YES take a look at that Matsui ball? The only measely reply NESN gave it sure looked fair.

  13. e mills says:

    that ball was fair

  14. pat says:

    Facebook please stop telling me to be friends with some weirdo named benjamin kabak

  15. Conan says:

    I wouldn’t DFA him – but Posada should be DHing tonight.

  16. YankeeScribe says:

    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.

  17. kunaldo says:

    this is pa-….wait for it…-thetic. pathetic.

    ay de mi

    maybe they’re saving it the offense for papelboner??

  18. Jay J says:

    Don’t let Damon get near the ball.

  19. Lily says:

    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

  20. Yankees_Universe says:

    So this is a payback from Offense to Pitching department. They are telling pitchers you sucked yesterday, today is our day.

  21. Ant says:

    Rewinding the DvR that Matsui ball definately went over the bag, shouldnt that be fair??

  22. Andrew says:

    Nice of the yankees to increase Penny’s trade value. Even if this team makes the playoffs, they are going nowhere.

    • Chip says:

      Yeah, remember that undefeated Patriots team that nobody could possibly beat in the playoffs? Me either

  23. BIG BOY says:

    Arod and Cano need to wake up…

  24. Accent Shallow says:

    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.


  25. Jay J says:

    sabathia’s high fastball… same hieght as penny’s Strike 3 call on Matsui, except more plate… hmm

  26. MattG says:

    Graphic on NESN: 900th career meeting between these teams at Fenway. Record thus far:


    Gol. 4 ties?

  27. pat says:

    Cervelli is the freakin man. I love that kid.

  28. Jay J says:

    strike 2… or not.

  29. BigBlueAL says:

    Hope Posada pinch-hits for Cervelli this inning.

  30. Double T says:

    here we go

  31. e mills says:

    Leche delivering here

  32. teix is the man says:

    I hope the home plate umpire gets hit in the fucking nuts with a 94mph sabathia heater

  33. kunaldo says:

    what do you think, posada to pinch hit??

  34. Bleakley says:

    I would like to see Justin Tuck take on Pedroia in a cage match.

  35. dkidd says:

    cc deserves a w

  36. MattG says:

    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…

    • Accent Shallow says:

      You get to look forward to him hitting second this inning.

    • Accent Shallow says:

      For the record, that hadn’t happened yet.

      Unless you can see the future, of course.

    • bizarrojamie says:

      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.

  37. Jay J says:

    CC deserves a W and a bonus check.

  38. Bill R says:

    If we get shut out again against Brad Penny Im boycotting the Yankees for two weeks!

  39. BIG BOY says:

    i wish the home and 3rd base ump get run over by a bus after the game.

  40. e mills says:

    told ya

  41. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    base hit for melky.

  42. Bob Stone says:

    Here we go – Let’s capitalize!!!

  43. Jay J says:

    Just hit it to One-Nut… Guy’s playing like he normally would without luck.

  44. Chip says:

    Wow, second pitch to Melky was in no way a strike. O well, he’s still on

  45. bxpd says:

    Has got to be a bunt.

  46. Mike Axisa says:

    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?

  47. Jay J says:

    if girardi calls bunt… and he did.

  48. pc69 says:

    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.

  49. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Melky steal and den cervelli bunts.

  50. Zach says:


  51. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    nice hit and run.

  52. BIG BOY says:


  53. Manimal says:


  54. BigBlueAL says:

    HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. Jake H says:


  56. Jay J says:


  57. Mike Axisa says:


    • Dorian says:

      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.

      • Mike Axisa says:

        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.

  58. Did that seriously just happen….?

  59. pat says:

    Chip Called it.

  60. Bill R says:


  61. DGeezy says:

    HOLY SHIT!!! that worked excellently!!

  62. Reggie C. says:

    Youth shall be served !

  63. bxpd says:

    Wow…that took serious guts by JG.

  64. pc69 says:

    Youth is the answer!

  65. handtius says:

    now everyone who bitches and moans that it’s over can please leave.

  66. Bob Stone says:

    Go Yankees!

  67. BigBlueAL says:

    I was about to rip Girardi for not pinch-hitting Posada and letting Cervelii bunt.

  68. dkidd says:

    ballsy call

    love it

  69. Jay J says:


  70. JobaWockeeZ says:

    And laughably we didn’t hit with RISP.

  71. miles says:

    so this is what they meant by “billy martin without the baggage.” good call, joe.

  72. Andrew says:

    Keep your fingers crossed everyone. Lets hope a) they can take lead and b) hold the damn lead!

  73. Jobamania says:


  74. pc69 says:

    someone said earlier that the law of averages would kick in… Hope they are right and that was it.

  75. Jay J says:

    I am not turning off Enter Sandman…

  76. e mills says:

    I hope Girardi learned a lesson about not bunting every time there is a man on first

  77. BigBlueAL says:

    Of course Cervelli’s hit didnt come w/RISP. LOL

  78. bxpd says:

    Should we bunt Jeet?

  79. Bob Stone says:

    The Sox hurt themselves by playing in for the bunt this inning

  80. Yankees_Universe says:

    have to score more here and let CC finish the game…don’t trust even MO right now…

  81. Bill R says:

    Is Mo good for 2 if need be?

  82. Jay J says:

    In MO we Trust… don’t you use money?

  83. Raf says:

    another 93mph breaking ball, the YES gun is out of control

  84. nmc says:

    no sandman tonight. CC all the way.

  85. Teh Melky Teh HOFer says:


  86. Mike HC says:

    this ump has been consistently bad for everyone.

  87. Dorian says:


  88. How are we hitting Manny del Carmen!?!?!?!?!? Duh guy could be a closah on anothah team!!!!!!

  89. Yankees_Universe says:

    Mike Francesa and Joel Sherman just threw remotes at tv….

  90. Jobamania says:

    what did jeter just swing at

  91. Double T says:

    damn, C’mon JD atone for your mistake!

  92. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Jeter are u serious u could move him to third.

  93. BIG BOY says:

    wow jeter…

  94. BigBlueAL says:

    Damnit Jeter. I mean fuck cant even hit a groundball to 2b or 1b Jesys Christ.

    • handtius says:

      Man, I know! It so easy to hit the ball exactly where you want to! Man what a jerk!

  95. pat says:

    I wish delcarmen tried to throw it there was nobody on the bag to throw it to.

  96. Andrew says:

    Like I said earlier, lets hope they can take the lead here.

  97. John says:

    might as well have bunted Jeter

    just kidding

  98. So the pitch before he grounded out, Jeter should’ve CRUSHED. Right over the damn middle.

  99. Pasqua says:

    Alright, who stole the real Derek?

  100. How in the hell was that a strike?

  101. Has anyone else noticed that Damon’s AVG is done to .288?

  102. Mike HC says:

    This should be the last time this ump ever calls a game behind the plate again

  103. BigBlueAL says:

    Damon going to hit the Pesky pole.

  104. Dorian says:

    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?

  105. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:


  106. Bill R says:

    AXL has texted to me to tell you guys that he says we will not score again this inning.

  107. Double T says:

    alright, rally time!!

  108. BigBlueAL says:

    Oh Boy. This is it!!!!

  109. Reggie C. says:

    Teixeira’s moment coming up.

  110. Jay J says:

    i’ll take 3 tickets for the M-Tex flight at 9:40 departure.

  111. e mills says:

    are there any sane broadcasters? this guy on MLB network said Delcarmen just pitched around Damon…lol

    • Pasqua says:

      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.

  112. Jobamania says:

    look how excited posada looks


  113. Teh Melky Teh HOFer says:

    Tex-Rod coming up! Lets Go Yanks!

  114. Raf says:

    no f’in way that was a strike

  115. BigBlueAL says:

    WTF how is that pitch a strike.

  116. Double T says:

    should be 2-1 c’mon ump

  117. Jobamania says:

    another atrocious called strike

  118. YankeeScribe says:

    Tex isn’t gonna see any good pitches. It’s time for A-Rod to get a hit

  119. Just missed, Mike? Really?

  120. Jay J says:

    should be 3-1 count.

  121. pc69 says:

    same place as the curve…

  122. Jobamania says:

    well i hope it doesn’t come down to bases loaded 2 out and Cano up.

  123. Mike HC says:

    Aight. A-Rod time

  124. A h & r would’ve gone badly there.

  125. BigBlueAL says:

    Its up to Arod.

  126. DGeezy says:

    we need you AROD…COME THRU!..COME THRU!!

  127. Double T says:

    Is Johnny Damon playing center field for the Sox again?

  128. Accent Shallow says:

    Let’s see if A-Rod can make himself useful.

  129. handtius says:

    Man, he’s hit bomb to center at least 2 times tonight. Bad brake.

  130. Hey, so, um, let’s fuckin’ go, Alex?

  131. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Come on arod

  132. bxpd says:

    Thank goodness Swisher wasn’t on base. Let’s A-rod!

  133. pat says:

    If arod swings at the first pitch this will be a bad AB

  134. Reggie C. says:

    a single. just give us a single.

  135. DGeezy says:

    is it just me or is arod swinging at a ton of 1st pitches these days?

  136. Andrew says:

    Arod due for a hit?

  137. JobaWockeeZ says:

    STEAL HOME CERVELLI! Can’t rely on hitters hitting with RISP.

  138. John says:

    that’s 2 balls well hit deep to CF by Tex

  139. zzzzzz says:

    i feel like i haven’t seen a yankee home run over the green monster since 2005.

    • Pasqua says:

      I keep flashing back to Monster homeruns hit by Yanks and then realize they were actually all hit by the Rays in the ALCS.

  140. Bill R says:

    here comes the rain of course!

  141. Jobamania says:

    This rain would be perfect if giambi was at the plate

  142. John says:

    cmon RISP correction!

  143. Raf says:

    alright lets go

  144. Jay J says:


  145. Teh Melky Teh HOFer says:

    Arod moment. Come on Arod!

  146. JobaWockeeZ says:


  147. Hells yeah, bitches.

  148. Raf says:

    fuck yeah. that was ripped

  149. DGeezy says:

    FUCK YESSS!!! AROD!!!!

  150. Mike HC says:

    very nice

  151. Jobamania says:


  152. Accent Shallow says:

    This Rodriguez fella, he’s pretty good, no?

  153. e mills says:

    BOOM Red Sox BITCHES!!!

  154. Double T says:

    Fuck yes!

  155. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    big hittttttttttttt righttttttttttt babiiiiiiiiii nicee.

  156. Jay J says:

    A-GOD!! A-GOD!! A-GOD!!

  157. BigBlueAL says:

    Fuck Yeah!!!!!!!!

  158. handtius says:

    Holy BALLS!!!!

  159. pat says:


  160. Yankees_Universe says:


  161. Slap hands! Slap hands!

  162. ARX says:

    Hell. Fucking. YES.

  163. Bill R says:


  164. Bob Stone says:

    Hot Shit!!!! A-ROD!!!

  165. BIG BOY says:


  166. BIG BOY says:


  167. Jobamania says:

    that was was just a bullet. if it had any height it would have been gone

  168. dkidd says:


    worth the wait

  169. Jay J says:

    i would’ve paid him 31 million a year, that’s just me

  170. Bob C says:

    HE took steroids

  171. handtius says:

    FUCK AXL!!!

  172. Andy Stankiewicz says:

    That was a thing of beauty.

  173. John says:



  174. Pasqua says:

    Garbage time…AGAIN.

  175. Jeremy says:

    That made me yell “FUCK YOU RED SOX!” at the TV uncontrollably!

  176. Nady Nation says:


  177. handtius says:


  178. Blackdragon905 says:

    a rod!!!!!!

  179. YankeeScribe says:

    Thanks A-Rod

  180. Chip says:

    Aaaaand, rainout

  181. Andrew says:

    We should release A-Rod (insert joke here).

  182. dkidd says:

    maybe they shouldn’t have drilled him in the back?

  183. Teh Melky Teh HOFer says:

    UNCLUTCH Arod!!! Ow yeah!

  184. giselle says:

    the red sox bullpen is perfect. there must be a glitch in the matrix.

  185. Raf says:

    but Delcarmen could be closing for about 25 teams in the league!!!!

  186. Jay J says:

    wonder what the red sox feel like… there’s no luck for them right now…

  187. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Now we need CC and perhaps Mo to end the game for us.

  188. Nick L says:

    so the “Arod Sucks” people have now changed their minds

  189. Jay J says:

    did they give Delcarmen a standing O? probably… right?

  190. Dorian says:


  191. pc69 says:

    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.

  192. MattG says:

    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?

  193. YankeeScribe says:

    This Red Sox bullpen isn’t so tough
