• Jersey

    This offense is pathetic.

  • Jake H

    This is just getting pathetic.

  • Andrew

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

  • BigBlueAL

    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.

    • nathan

      they already are

  • Double T

    was that changeup not high and outside??

  • teix is the man

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

  • Jersey

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

  • Matty Ice

    Now CC knows how Johan Santana feels.

    2 for 25 with RISP? Just pathetic.

    • Reggie C.

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

    • Accent Shallow

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

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

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

    • BIG BOY

      not against the redsox.

    • Bleakley

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

    • giselle

      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.

  • pc69

    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.

    • Double T

      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.

      • pc69

        Means his knee is worse than he is letting on. While gritty, it does no one any good.

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

      O A K T A G

      • pc69

        have no idea what that means

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

          It means you said something monumentally stupid.

          • pc69

            saying Matsui is a liability is monumentally stupid or you just don’t like it?

            • pc69

              the letters still don’t add up to monumentally stupid.

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

              Saying we should DFA Matsui is monumentally stupid.

              • pc69

                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.

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

                  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.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Holy shit is every solution DFA? Jesus christ this is unbelievable. Even Lanny isn’t saying as stupid stuff today!

      • pc69

        No, just with matsui. Sorry, never been a big fan and hate to see him look so foolish at the plate.

  • Chris

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

    • Zach

      Because they have zero come from behind wins this season…

      • Bill R

        against the Red Sox that is very very true

  • MattG

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

    • BigBlueAL

      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.

      • MattG

        Not the third strike. The ball that was called foul.

    • Bleakley

      It wasn’t an Ortiz homer so they wont replay it.

  • e mills

    that ball was fair

  • pat

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

  • http://theyankeebomber.blogspot.com Conan

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

    • Chip

      Or you could give a 37 year old catcher a night off in June

      • Double T

        we will see some hip hip Jorge action at some point tonight…

  • YankeeScribe

    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.

  • kunaldo

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

    ay de mi

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

  • Jay J

    Don’t let Damon get near the ball.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      OAKTAG. This is based on one error and the rest of his caught flyballs don’t matter? I give up today.

      • pat

        IT WAS A JOKE.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Really then it would be a pretty stupid joke based on one error.

          • pat

            I thought it was funny, i was thinking the same exact thing.

      • Zach

        OH NO! wait he caught it

  • Lily

    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

  • Yankees_Universe

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

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Heh I actually enjoyed this.

  • Ant

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

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

      Yep.

      • Bleakley

        I love how YES doesn’t even take a look at it. Great job!

  • Andrew

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

    • Chip

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

  • BIG BOY

    Arod and Cano need to wake up…

  • Accent Shallow

    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.

    Sheesh.

  • Jay J

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

    • Bob Stone

      CC has definitely been getting squeezed compared to Penny

  • MattG

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

    449-446-4.

    Gol. 4 ties?

    • kunaldo

      when it got dark back in the day?

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

      Probably suspended games that never got finished.

    • Slu

      Called because of rain after 5 and not necessary to continue?

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

      The rules were different 100 years ago.

  • pat

    Cervelli is the freakin man. I love that kid.

  • Jay J

    strike 2… or not.

  • BigBlueAL

    Hope Posada pinch-hits for Cervelli this inning.

    • Chip

      It’s funny that it seems everytime this situation comes up and we all want Posada, Cervelli comes through

      • Chip

        See?

  • Double T

    here we go

  • e mills

    Leche delivering here

  • teix is the man

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

    • yankeefan91 Arod fan

      lmao

  • kunaldo

    what do you think, posada to pinch hit??

    • Accent Shallow

      It’s a 1 run game. Use him in the 9th, if necessary.

    • Dorian

      Nope.

  • Bleakley

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

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Screw that I want to see Girardi take Pedroia on.

    • kunaldo

      hahahahahaha that’s ridiculous dude

      Pedroia the gritmaster flex FTW

    • Bleakley

      Grit Gritner vs. Pedroia? I take Grit all the way.

  • dkidd

    cc deserves a w

  • MattG

    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

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

      • JobaWockeeZ

        CALLED IT DUDE!!!

    • Accent Shallow

      For the record, that hadn’t happened yet.

      Unless you can see the future, of course.

    • bizarrojamie

      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.

  • Jay J

    CC deserves a W and a bonus check.

  • Bill R

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

    • MattG

      That would include RAB, right? See, there is always a bright side.

      I keed.

      • Bill R

        Looks like you dont get your wish!

    • handtius

      you should do it anyway.

  • Manimal
    • Manimal

      Ive been playing this game for like 3 innings now.

    • Bill R

      Wow thats hard

      • teix is the man

        Thats what she said!

  • BIG BOY

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

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Driven by an angered Matsui.

    • MattG

      Mmm…I bet their families don’t.

  • e mills

    told ya

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    base hit for melky.

  • Bob Stone

    Here we go – Let’s capitalize!!!

  • Jay J

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

    • Pasqua

      Dude…

  • Chip

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

  • bxpd

    Has got to be a bunt.

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

    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?

    • Pasqua

      Love this.

  • Jay J

    if girardi calls bunt… and he did.

  • pc69

    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.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Melky steal and den cervelli bunts.

    • handtius

      did one betta

  • Zach

    RUN!!!!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    nice hit and run.

  • BIG BOY

    FUCK YES CERVELLI!!!

  • Manimal

    ATTA BOY CERVELLI!

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Jake H

    Clutchness.

  • e mills
  • Jay J

    CISCO!!! MELKY!!! CERVELLIFOR MVP/PRESIDENT/MANCRUSH

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

    THAT’S WHY YOU DON’T BUNT!!!

    • Dorian

      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.

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

        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.

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

    Did that seriously just happen….?

  • pat

    Chip Called it.

  • Bill R

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

  • DGeezy

    HOLY SHIT!!! that worked excellently!!

  • Reggie C.

    Youth shall be served !

  • bxpd

    Wow…that took serious guts by JG.

  • pc69

    Youth is the answer!

  • handtius

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

  • Bob Stone

    Go Yankees!

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • dkidd

    ballsy call

    love it

  • Jay J

    FUCKIN YEAH BABY!!!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    And laughably we didn’t hit with RISP.

  • miles

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

  • Andrew

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

  • Jobamania

    ITALIAN STALLION

  • pc69

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

  • Jay J

    I am not turning off Enter Sandman…

  • e mills

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

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • bxpd

    Should we bunt Jeet?

  • Bob Stone

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

  • Yankees_Universe

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

    • Zach

      93 pitches and 3 innings to go, not going to happen

      • Jobamania

        93 is more liek 63 for C.C.

    • Bob Stone

      CC is at 93 pitches – so he can continue

    • Andrew

      Your being silly man. Rivera is fine.

  • Bill R

    Is Mo good for 2 if need be?

    • Jobamania

      C.C. is going 8

  • Jay J

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

  • Raf

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

  • nmc

    no sandman tonight. CC all the way.

    • Bob Stone

      I’d love to see a complete game

  • Teh Melky Teh HOFer

    Finally!

  • Mike HC

    this ump has been consistently bad for everyone.

  • Dorian

    OMG I almost forgot. THE GREATEST BULLPEN OF ALL TIMES.

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

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

    • Raf

      ietc. ive heard that so many times.

      • Chip

        Same deal with Bard

  • Yankees_Universe

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

  • Jobamania

    what did jeter just swing at

  • Double T

    damn, C’mon JD atone for your mistake!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Jeter are u serious u could move him to third.

  • BIG BOY

    wow jeter…

  • BigBlueAL

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

    • handtius

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

  • pat

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

  • Andrew

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

  • John

    might as well have bunted Jeter

    just kidding

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

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

  • Pasqua

    Alright, who stole the real Derek?

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

    How in the hell was that a strike?

  • http://anewfrontier.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

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

    • http://anewfrontier.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

      *down

  • Mike HC

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

  • BigBlueAL

    Damon going to hit the Pesky pole.

    • Chip

      Damon Tex going to hit the Pesky pole.

      • Chip

        HTML fail

    • handtius

      Maybe Tex instead?

  • Dorian

    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?

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    walk

  • Bill R

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

    • http://anewfrontier.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

      sarcasm alert, or do you know him personally?

      • Bill R

        No he’s a close friend of mine

    • pat

      dude give it up the more u bring up his name the more stupid shit he says.

      • BigBlueAL

        We have turned him into a RAB celebrity.

    • Bill R

      I hope he’s wrong!

  • Double T

    alright, rally time!!

  • BigBlueAL

    Oh Boy. This is it!!!!

  • Reggie C.

    Teixeira’s moment coming up.

  • Jay J

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

  • e mills

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

    • Pasqua

      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.

  • Jobamania

    look how excited posada looks

    “COACH YOURE SENDING ME IN?!?!!?!!!”

    • Double T

      IETC

  • Teh Melky Teh HOFer

    Tex-Rod coming up! Lets Go Yanks!

  • Raf

    no f’in way that was a strike

  • BigBlueAL

    WTF how is that pitch a strike.

  • Double T

    should be 2-1 c’mon ump

  • Jobamania

    another atrocious called strike

  • YankeeScribe

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

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

    Just missed, Mike? Really?

  • Jay J

    should be 3-1 count.

  • pc69

    same place as the curve…

  • Jobamania

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

  • Mike HC

    Aight. A-Rod time

  • http://anewfrontier.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    A h & r would’ve gone badly there.

  • BigBlueAL

    Its up to Arod.

  • DGeezy

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

  • Double T

    Is Johnny Damon playing center field for the Sox again?

  • Accent Shallow

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

  • handtius

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

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

      That one just missed the sweet spot.

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

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

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Come on arod

  • bxpd

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

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

    • pat

      welp lets see.

      • pat

        I LOVE BEING WRONG

    • Dorian

      MASSIVE FAIL

  • Reggie C.

    a single. just give us a single.

  • DGeezy

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

  • Andrew

    Arod due for a hit?

  • JobaWockeeZ

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

  • John

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

  • zzzzzz

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

    • Pasqua

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

  • Bill R

    here comes the rain of course!

  • Jobamania

    This rain would be perfect if giambi was at the plate

  • John

    cmon RISP correction!

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

  • Teh Melky Teh HOFer

    UNCLUTCH Arod!!! Ow yeah!

  • giselle

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

  • Raf

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

  • Jay J

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

    • John

      nah we earned this bitch

  • JobaWockeeZ

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

    • Jeremy

      CC will go for the CG.

  • Nick L

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

  • Jay J

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

  • Dorian

    I almost forgot. THE GREATEST BULLPEN OF ALL TIMES.

  • pc69

    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.
