      kill yourself

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph Pawlikowski

    Fucking A-Rod. Now we can’t have the show unread comments feature for the rest of the night.

    • handtius

      He broke it?! Just like all Yankees fans Hearts.

  • e mills

    def broke it b/c of the roids

  • Bob Stone

    I thought the site got bogged down – couldn’t refresh

  • Raf

    Longoria crushed that homer. looks like he might be back close to full strength

  • OmgZombies

    Absolutely perfect timing for Arod to get a hit.

  • Reggie C.

    Arod got his.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Come on Cc quick inning right here.

  • Chris

    I’m confused. I was under the impression that the game was over when the Yankees trailed 1-0 in the second. I guess the rumors were right, and they do actually play 9 innings.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      The new rule said that when the Red Sox score they win…but they haven’t upheld it. I r confused too.

      • Pasqua

        Red Sox are protesting.

  • Raf

    are we basically seeing Cervelli become CC’s personal catcher?

  • Dorian

    180 million reasons why

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

    That’s a double with Bobby Abreu out there.

  • Jay J

    K-BALL!! let’s go, fuck this Shrek fag.

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

      Really?

    • handtius

      Come on man, no gay bashing.

  • Andrew

    CC is still the player the game.

  • Jeremy

    This David Oritz person seems to cause a lot of problems for us.

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

    0-2 hits = hair pullers.

    But then again, CC has very little hair…

  • BigBlueAL

    Of course Papi hits rockets against the Yankees and cant hit a beach ball against every other team in the MLB.

    • Accent Shallow

      Seriously, what the hell?

      I thought I read an article with a scout saying his bat speed is gone, and another one how his fly balls, liners, and fliners are travelling less distance this year?

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    double play Cc.

  • Jay J

    Michael Kay wasnt so excited when A-Rod had the hit… shouldn’t one of us be the broadcaster?

    • mick

      Michael Kay is a secret Yankee hater!

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

        Actually, I think the problem is that he’s a huge Yankee fans, and overcompensates when he attempts to sound unbiased.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph Pawlikowski

          Yeah, but the announcer is supposed to be excited when the home team does well. I mean, he’s broadcasting to the team’s fans. They don’t want to hear that monotonous shit.

          • mick

            Agreed!!!

        • handtius

          Yeah, he gre up in the Bronx around the corner from the stadium. Says he’s not a fan anymore, but I don’t know about that.

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

          +1

  • Mike HC

    Whenever the camera turned to Torre during the games, he always came off as being very calm. The guy would be drinking tea for half the game. Whenever the camera turns to Girardi, you can actually watch him age right before your eyes. He is wound up so tight. I’m not saying which one is better, or if one strategy is better than the other, I am just saying it is a noticeable difference.

    • BigBlueAL

      Girardi always standing up with his arms crossed too looking pissed as fuck.

  • Jay J

    Baldelli looks stupid!

  • Bob Stone

    Umpire is calling more strikes – he must want to get out of the rain.

  • Raf

    fuck yeah CC

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

    Peace, Rocco.

  • Accent Shallow

    Looks like Cervelli hangs out with Joba.

  • Yankees_Universe

    I have always wondered why Joba can’t move his target to Veritak once in a while from Youkilis…he is so over due for one on numbers..

    • Bob Stone

      What?????

      • Yankees_Universe

        Some one needs to drill Veritak once in a while..

  • pat

    Dorian – in your response to your last post last thread. Yes I FAILED, I’ll take that all day everyday baby.

    • Dorian

      I would have as well lol

  • Dorian

    BEAST!!!!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    I think hes going for the complete game tonight even if it takes 130 pitches like halladay the other day.

  • Nady Nation

    CC is so fucking awesome, even though he doesn’t want to be in NY.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Untrue. The Angels made a good offer for him so we had to apy more. Plus he moved his family in the area.

      • Nady Nation

        Sarcasm.

  • Jay J

    Varitek is unproductive, no luck in him, youkilis, full of luck, hit youkilis.

  • Double T

    CC has pitched awesome but a few more runs won’t hurt at all.

  • Jake H

    C.C has been worth every single penny.

  • dkidd

    good luck getting cc out of this game, joe

  • Reggie C.

    Molina can take his time in Tampa … i get the feeling that CC wants Cerv around.

    • e mills

      http://riveraveblues.com/2009/.....ent-417401

      No way!!! It can’t be that way b/c Posada is god!

      • e mills

        not saying Posada’s not, but sometimes pitchers do prefer pitching to a certain catcher

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

        You have really put that link to use tonight.

        • e mills

          just twice and just for you

  • Jay J

    put a 10 spot on this bullpen, watch how they’re not #1 anymore.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    That number looks so weird on Saito.

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

    Damn, it’s coming down.

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

      Damn, it’s coming going down.

      • pat

        MEET ME AT THE MALL

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

    Watching on YES bonuscam–watching Girardi shake from side to side is priceless.

  • YankeeScribe

    Cervelli handles pitchers better than Posada

  • BigBlueAL

    Ibanez with a 2-out, 3-run HR in the 10th inning. Amazing.

    • Accent Shallow

      Guess he’s pissed about everyone talking about how bad his contract was.

      • Raf

        or the steroid accusations

  • MattG

    Eckersley is a pretty good announcer. NESN does a decent job…at least on days when Jerry Remy is off.

    • Zach

      I enjoy Eckersley, he’s like what the hell just throw it

      Remy is off recovering from surgery for lung cancer.

  • Accent Shallow

    Saito looks huge, but he’s only 6’1″.

    Also, I expected his stuff to be a lot nastier, given some of the lines he’s held hitters to. For example, his 2007: RHB had a .329 OPS against him. That’s right, OPS. Maybe it’s the deceptive delivery.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph Pawlikowski

      About 5’5″ of that is his legs.

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

      The weird thing is that he was just a garden variety middle reliever in Japan, nothing special at all. Older guy whose career was coming to and end, and wanted to give US ball a try.

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

        How can you be garden-variety with hi-90s FB with a deadly split and impeccable control/command?

    • Zach

      This is a different Saito then 2007, he has a torn elbow ligament and had the same procedure Nady is having right now.

  • Andy Stankiewicz

    Darling said that Ibanez the best free agent signing in all of baseball including Teixera.

    • BigBlueAL

      Well for the money spent you cant argue with his assumption.

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

        Yes, you can. You’re paying $36M for his decline years. He won’t be this good when he’s 39, and he’s no good on the basepath or the field. No one said the deal would be bad for this year, but it will get ugly starting next year.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph Pawlikowski

          Yeah, but do you remember people saying the Yanks would regret the last two years of the Damon deal? Yeah, Ibanez is older, but it’s still the same idea.

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

            But Damon can run and has range, and his bat, even at that time, would play passably at a corner. Ibanez has no ability outside of his hitting tools.

    • MattG

      Yes, 11% of the way into his contract, it is time to definitively declare that.

      Andy, did you get that much-needed nose job yet?

    • Dorian

      Do you play defense too in baseball?

    • manimal

      BUT HE DOES PED’s!

      For real though, he was the best considering there wasn’t much buzz about him and he has had himself a great year so far. Everyone questioned the signing and it has payed off big time. Better than Tex though? I dunno

  • Dorian

    Yesterday I stated that all I wanted was for C.C to stand on the mound at the end of the 9th inning pump his fist and shout obscenities.

  • dkidd

    they have to stop this game, don’t they?

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

      No, because then they have to take CC out.

  • Matty Ice

    Man, Matsui has missed some pitches this game he should’ve had….

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Well at least he got a single.

  • Jay J

    hey, we hit the big green thing out there…

  • Double T

    I love hearing a pin drop in that dump here’s hoping Melk Man cashes in.

  • Accent Shallow

    2008 Melky swings at that pitch.

  • handtius

    Matsui is done.

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

    Nice catch by Roc.

  • Jay J

    Baldelli hasnt run out of luck…

  • Raf

    man good catch by Baldelli. horrible route to get to it

  • Double T

    eh nice rescue catch I thought that was getting by

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

    I did not think he would catch that.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Damn it.

  • Mike HC

    Damn. Sick play. That hit was slicing fast

  • pat

    Fuuuuck. Melky has been robbed a couple times this series.

  • Jay J

    shouldve hit it to one-nut lowell.

  • DGeezy

    wow there is no way i thought baldelli makes that play..since he cant kill us with his bat anymore, he robs us in the field pffft

  • manimal

    Why isnt gardner running for matsui?

    • handtius

      Because Matsui is FAST!!!

    • Zach

      he’s probably going to CF for defense with Melky moving to RF

      • Zach

        hey i was right

        • handtius

          Genius!!!

          • Zach

            i tell myself that everyday

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph Pawlikowski

          You can’t be right. No one but Axl can be right. Everyone knows that.

  • Reggie C.

    Baldelli will miss a week of games.

  • Jay J

    “they’ll play through this unless it starts to pour”, what does Kay call this?

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

    Do you think some sort of byproduct of stem cell research could help Baldelli’s condition?

    • handtius

      I wouldn’t doubt it. A hospital in England has been doing a trial with contact lenses soaked in a culture of stem cells and it has cured blind people and restored vision in people who were nearsighted. That’s fucking CRAZY!

      • Zach

        thats crazy

    • A.D.

      In all seriousness stem cells or RNAi technology allows almost anything to be possible at this point, since there’s so much promise and a lot of unknown.

  • handtius

    Ew

  • MattG

    OK, my five minute tape delay over–Baldelli got a bad jump on that ball. Spectacular catch on a slightly difficult play.

  • Bob Stone

    If they call the game, the Yanks win? It doesn’t get suspended and finished later does it? Like in the World Series?

    • Yankees_Universe

      It can’t be called if the visiting team is leading and home team hasn’t batted.

      • Zach

        It can only be called at the end of an inning?

      • Bob Stone

        Don’t they go back to the last complete inning as long as it is 5 innings or more?

        • Yankees_Universe

          Nope…It happened couple years ago in Baltimore..they played remaining innings few months later..

    • A.D.

      It’d be a Yanks W at this point.

      • Bob Stone

        That’s what I thought

    • handtius

      They won’t call it. It’s against the rules in Boston.

  • Jay J

    Over/Under 1K for Sabathia this inning.

    • handtius

      over

      • handtius

        with that pitch, I believe so.

        • handtius

          DOH!

    • Dorian

      push

  • Double T

    Mexican Gangster up

  • Raf

    wow that was a horrible swing

  • Jay J

    hey, lets sign nick green, he’s lucky…

    • yankeefan91 Arod fan

      Y couldnt he hit when he was with us.

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

    This is CC’s game. No messing around with Al freaking Aceves.

    • Raf

      CC straight to Mo. no other way

    • handtius

      I trust Al, but I think CC can handle it.

  • Jay J

    that 2nd pitch to PEDroia wasnt a strike?

    • Double T

      His grittiness made it a ball

    • Zach

      high

  • pc69

    This is just stupid leaving CC in this game.

    • Zach

      why?

    • Dorian

      no my friend. you are unintelligent.

      • pc69

        Yes, I am unitelligent. Your ACE is approaching 120 pitches in the rain, with zero outs in the 8th, missing the zone, so yes I am unintelligent. And now he has runners at 1st and 2nd, no outs, luckily did not pull a hamstring on a wet field.

        Jesus fucking christ you fucking people do nothing but sit and attack every mother fucking comment. Get a fucking grip. There is NOTHING unintelligent about my post.

        • Charlie

          i couldn’t agree more.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Joe this is CC’s Game leave him in there.

  • YankeeScribe

    double play time?

    • DGeezy

      im praying for one

  • Chip

    CC not going to be in there for much longer

    • handtius

      he’s at 120

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

    Dustin Pedroia is NOT the toughest hitter to strike out. Ever heard of Albert Pujols?

  • Yankees_Universe

    wtf is with this midget…get him out cc on next pitch

  • Jay J

    Kay, can you announce for the red sox… fuckin christ.

    • mick

      He is so boring he should announce for the Wall Street Journal company softball team.

  • Dorian

    Great move Joe.

  • Chip

    Tough spot for Aceves to be coming in here

  • DGeezy

    leave him in for drew, hopefully we can get a GIDP

  • handtius

    shize. midgets and their tiny strike zones.

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

    You really should bring Mo in for this inning.

  • Andy Stankiewicz

    I hate Pedroia but that was a great AB.

  • pat

    good ab by pedroia

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    A double play CC.

  • Raf

    atta boy, let him pitch

  • Chip

    Wow, absolutely shocked CC is staying in here.

    • Zach

      no one else is

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    shyt.

  • Jay J

    figures… luck > skill.

  • DGeezy

    ugh this is not good

  • BigBlueAL

    We are fucked.

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

      Some optimism, anyone, please?

  • handtius

    damn it man…

  • Jake H

    I hate the red sox so much.

  • Double T

    horale

  • E-ROC

    Straight to Mo?

  • Chip

    Well that one backfired on them

  • e mills

    pc69 was correct again

  • Accent Shallow

    Aceves? Well, here’s a test . .

  • Raf

    ugh not what i want to see. i trust aceves but against youk and bay…

  • manimal

    CC lost the bite on his fastball toward the end.

    • BigBlueAL

      Thats what happens when you throw over 120 pitches in a stressful ass game.

  • sic

    fuck. now the gangster to face youkilis. im shitting bricks.

  • pat

    From the Mexican League to 2 on no out bottom of the 8th inning in Fenway Alfredo Aceves this is your life.

  • Tom Zig

    Now I understand that you don’t want to use Rivera for 6 outs…but doesn’t this count as the at-bat of the game here?

    • bxpd

      I’m with you. This is the game right here. Bring Mo in now.

  • pc69

    Yep, atta boy let him pitch. 1 run in already zero outs and tying run at second.

  • Jake K.

    Why not go to Mo here?

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

    I’m sorry, you have to go to your best reliever here. This is the save situation.

  • Ant

    Ummm this is why the closer mentality is retarded. You should be bring Mo in this situation and then have Aceves face the bottom of the lineup. Unbeleiveable

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

      +4291

  • JobaWockeeZ

    What do they do? Aceves for 6 outs or Mo for the 9th?

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

      It’s the 8th.

  • Jay J

    you know CC is a beast, but after the first hit, you pretty much made sabathia throw BP…

  • Chip

    If Girardi were coaching the Red Sox, he’d bunt right here

  • DGeezy

    im not feeling so hot about this, 1st & 2nd none out, aceves vs youk in a 1 run game..please work your magic mexican gangster

  • Bill R

    I can’t handle this!!!!!!!!!!

  • manimal

    This is a situation where wang could be useful in the pen. Try to get the DP.

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

      No, this is a situation where using Mariano would be the best option because the opponent’s best hitters are up with the tying run on second and the go ahead run on first.

    • Matty Ice

      Wang in the pen in this situation??

      Do you want them to hit a 3 run homer?

  • E-ROC

    C’mon Aceves!!!!!! Please!!!!

  • Hova

    I have faith in the Mexican Gangster. He doesn’t mess around. Come out throwing strikes and shut the Sox down. Viva la Mexico!

  • Dorian

    Don’t second guess the move now people. There was nobody I wanted on the mound but C.C

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

      I don’t think anyone’s mad about keeping CC in. I’d rather Mo be in instead of Aceves.

  • Accent Shallow

    To reiterate what everyone else said, I’d much rather see Mo here, and someone else for the 9th. Unfortunately, no one’s gonna use a closer like that . . . once he’s in, he’s staying in.

  • http://www.geeks2you.net Marc

    For the love of Mo, Can’t we have two innings of Mo?!?!

  • Double T

    Girardi is gonna live or die with this decision I’m hoping the Gangster gets after these fools

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

    No way you go to Rivera here. Shit happens in Fenway Park, and this 8th inning has the same amt. of pressure that the 9th has.

  • Jay J

    as manager, im happy with 1 ER in 7 innings from my ace… 9,1,2 coming up… why not your set up man… doesnt make sense, i can see if CC had 90 pitches, but 100+…

    • JobaWockeeZ

      CC has always been pitching +100 pitch games.

      • Hova

        Man. I don’t know what to say. We can’t catch a break. What do we have to do to get just one win against this team? So frustrating. Can something go in our favor just for once? Like holding a lead for more than an inning?

        Not gonna knock CC. He pitched a great game and ran out of gas. Just another tough break.

  • BigBlueAL

    God if Aceves blows this, ESPN and Francessa will be horrible to listen to and you know why….

    • Accent Shallow

      1st and 2nd no out and a run already in is a damn difficult situation.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    We need a triple play :P

  • Ant

    Seriously, what the hell are you doing Girardi!?!?!?! Phil Coke up???

  • Jay J

    CC is great at pitching 100+ but 2 longer than usual innings, rain, and 9,1,2, shoulda went fresh with set up.

  • Reggie C.

    Cut some heads off Aceves!!! I know its in your blood!

  • TJ

    Joe should have pulled CC, and let Aceves start the inning, at least he should have pulled CC after allowing a baserunner, not wait until a run gets knocked in with no outs.

    • Zach

      you’re so good at second guessing

    • Nick L

      but if CC had gone 1-2-3 you would have said girardi was a genius for keeping him in through a high pitch count.

  • John

    Cmon Ace…show them our pen is better!

  • Double T

    Girardi looks like he’s gonna mix and match his way through this 8th

  • manimal

    WTF WAS THAT

  • Bill R

    C’mon! we cant load the bases with no outs!

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

    That was not a strike.

    • Ant

      The way this ump has been calling yes it was

  • Jay J

    hmm… got most of the plate… perfect height… we’ll call it a ball.

  • e mills

    anyone on Gameday? that was def. a strike

  • TJ

    Last pitch was strike 3

    • V

      I hate these umpires. Hate them. Hate them. Hate them.

  • pat

    alfie drop s nasty hook for a change ive seen you do it many times baby.

    • pat

      haha for a strike, too late though.

  • Raf

    fuck man. damn this closer in the 9th shit.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    This sucks, at least they didn’t score.

  • manimal

    Pedroia wouldve been gunned at the plate

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

    The difference between Cabrera’s arm and Swisher’s arm is the difference in the game right now.

  • E-ROC

    Can we get a damn groundball?

  • TJ

    Bring in MO

  • Bill R

    I’m going to cry if he hits a granny smith

    • handtius

      doesn’t matter a single puts the game out of reach.

  • Ant

    All this while the best closer in history of baseball is sitting in the bullpen

  • John

    ohh damn

  • Double T

    damn

  • Accent Shallow

    Horsecrap.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    dammitttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Fuck come on…

  • DGeezy

    ugh this is horrible

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

    Fuck you, Aceves.

    • V

      Aceves needs to get 5 strikes per AB. Fuck you, umpire.

  • Jake H

    How can this team f stuff up this quickly?

  • handtius

    This is bad luck nightmare.

  • BigBlueAL

    I would have rather have been shutout than taken the lead and blown the game like this. The Red Sox are the Yankees daddy.

  • Raf

    this is fucking unbelievable

  • Dorian

    WE GOT FUCKIN ROBBED AGAIN.

  • TJ

    are we really going to go 0-8

  • Double T

    does anyone else want to punch some of these fans in the face or is it just me?

  • Jay J

    Youk struck out, this should be bases loaded with 1 out… not tie game, ump fines? please…

  • pat

    ouch.

  • E-ROC

    Not a save situation anymore.

  • sic

    motherFUCK.

  • Dela G

    eff!!!!!!

  • manimal

    FUCK!!!!!!!!

  • John

    OH FUCK….

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

    Ace now needs to throw his curve.

  • pc69

    Left CC in too long.

  • Lanny

    And not having any type of bullpen catches up to us.

    • handtius

      I’m sorry, Al has been awesome, so don’t start. Go back to not commenting.

      • Lanny

        Yea, he was great tonight.

  • manimal

    New spill over thread. STAT.

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

    Now put that…down and away.

  • BigBlueAL

    Aceves is a solid innings eater out of the pen. He doesnt have the stuff to get out of jams like this.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  • Double T

    wow what kind of throw was that?

  • manimal

    youve got to be fucking kidding me

  • ARX

    Fuck this.

  • John

    i blame this on Nick fukin Green for that leadoff single

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

    I COULD MAKE A MOTHERFUCKING BETTER THROW THAN THAT!!!!!!!!

  • TJ

    Very odd, Yanks seems to be a totally different team v Boston

    RAG ARM GARDNER

  • JobaWockeeZ

    This is ridiculous

  • Accent Shallow

    And Gardner lawn darts it. Argh.

    Clearly not Aceves’ night.

  • Yankee1010

    I could have kicked the ball harder than that Gardner.

  • E-ROC

    Damn. Grit Gardner.

  • Charlie

    This if fucking BULLSHIT. Joe Girardi is a FUckIng dumbass!! Leave your ace out there in the rain after over 120 pitches when he’s clearly out of gas. Fucking unacceptable, i’m tired of this shit. We’ve got a bullpen for a reason, put in D-Rob or Alfie to right when CC shows signs of tiring, not when the game is about to be blown. JOE GIRARDI, YOuR A MOTHERFUCKER.

    • Zach

      where were your posts earlier this inning?

      • Charlie

        my computer was messed up.

        • Zach

          how convient

          • Charlie

            what the fuck are you talking about?

            • Zach

              i said its convient your computer was down when the debate happened, but popped back up when it was time for the second guessing

              • Charlie

                shut the fuck up, i’m not second guessing. I wanted CC pulled before the start of the 8th inning to begin with.

    • Justin R

      Oh stop it. If he pulled CC and put Ace in to start the inning and he coughed it up, you would be bitching that he pulled CC.

      • Nick L

        very true.

      • Charlie

        No, i wouldn’t be. You can’t expect someone to be going strong after well over 100 pitches. If Joe wanted CC starting the inning, fine, but if it wasn’t fucking clear that he didn’t have it after nick green got on, it should have been crystal fucking clear after the walk.

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

    What in the fuck was that, Gardner?

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

    I blame A-Rod.

  • sic

    Jesus Mary and Joseph.

  • Raf

    i hate doing this but im throwing some blame on Girardi. you cant leave Mo out there sitting in the pen in that spot.

    • pc69

      Incorrect. Every GM on this blog said burning CC like it was the last game of the year was the way to go. Instead, he was gassed and left the tying and go ahead runs on base.

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

    Does Drew tag-up if Melky was making that catch in CF????

    • Zach

      does Pedroia score two plays before with Swisher in RF?

  • Ant

    Wow we really do deserve to lose this game

  • Dela G

    this is unbelievable

  • pat

    wow gardy, your arm is bad, not that bad.

  • TJ

    Game over

  • pc69

    There is your game. Should have gone directly to the pen to start the inning.

  • Double T

    That throw almost caught the infield dirt and he wasn’t that far away

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

    The Mike Bloomberg ads are making this moment worse.

  • Bill R

    I just threw my entire office supply organizer off my desk im so fucking mad! Why was Mo not brought in!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  • Charlie

    I’ve got to find something to punch, and fast. I’m convinced that Girardi and the yanks wanted to lose this fucking game.

  • YankeeScribe

    Unbelievable

  • TJ

    The crappy part is that Boston isnt that great a team.

  • Jobamania

    lol@gardners arm

    and even more lol@bringing in a guy who pitches to contact in this situation.

    we need guys who strike people OUT

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

  • Drew

    So shitty. I wish Gardner could have at least made it a play at the plate.

  • sic

    why the fuck do we have mo? do get pressure outs. there were no greater pressure outs than the ones that were just given to alfredo aceves.

    fucking goddamn it.

  • bonestock94

    Not much to say here besides FUCK!!!

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

    This is why the save rule has ruined managing. Rivera should’ve been in, not Aceves.

    • Accent Shallow

      I blame Tony LaRussa. Worst dude.

  • http://www.geeks2you.net Marc

    JOBA TO TEH 8TH!@#@!#!@#!@#!@!!!

    No seriously, just give us Mo for 2 innings!@!!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    We need to destroy Papelbon.

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      Where are you batting in the order? I’m 7th.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        I’m on the bench. Hope you win it for us!

        • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

          WE could do it.

    • Bill R

      we won’t get a hit, our souls have been crushed

  • Jay J

    George Steinbrenner: better bullpen by now.
    Cashman: we’ll come around by the 180th game.

    • Zach

      how the fuck do you get a better bullpen? oh lets trade for krod

      • Lanny

        Having faith in rag tags like Edwar and Veras is good front office skills?

        • Zach

          Minus one outing for Veras last year and his ERA was under 3.00, Edwar was acceptable last year, and Bruney is hurt this year, Marte is hurt as well. Juan Cruz was the only guy out there and he has a ERA over 5 in KC.

      • Bill R

        PITCH MO THAT’S HOW!

  • BigBlueAL

    Sad part is CC’s line is 4 runs in 7 innings and most likely the Loss.

    • Jobamania

      aceves killed it

  • Smitt Dog

    I’ve defended Girardi many times, but this is on him. Mo should have been out there. I’m not saying hes not the right manager for this team, but this was clearly the wrong call.

  • TJ

    Do we really need Girardi, seems to make some horrible errors in judgment

    • Charlie

      NO HE’S THE STUPIDEST MOTHERFUCKING MANAGER I’VE EVER SEEN. I WOULD LITERALLY FIRE HIS ASS.

      • Charlie

        by the way i was serious, not sarcastic here

  • Raf

    oh come on , ortiz swung there

  • chriskeo

    more importantly we need to stop the sox rally here

  • Charlie

    FUCK JOE GIRARDI. HE SHOULD BE FUCKING FIRED RIGHT NOW!! NO ONE TO BLAME FOR THIS LOSS BUT HIM. GODFUCKINGDAMMI.

  • pat

    this one hurts real bad

  • BigBlueAL

    Wander if Wang wasnt so horrible last night and Hughes didnt pitch if he wouldve been brought in tonight.

  • Lanny

    When has Girardi ever brought Mo into a game in the 8th in a non save situation?

    Get over that. We don’t have any type of pen. Aceves is a swingman. Not a shutdown 8th inning set up man.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Lanny! Again another post that is more constructive than others I have seen.

    • handtius

      He’s done both actually and done it well.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    dammit throw fucking strikes coke.

  • Drew

    Coke was clearly not prepared for this, mentally.

  • E-ROC

    At least Aceves threw strikes.

  • handtius

    Damn. People pitch when CC is pulled, bitching when he’s not. SHUT UP!

    • handtius

      pitch = bitch

    • Bob C

      he shouldnt have gone out gotta give the bull pen a chance

    • Jobamania

      keeping C.C. in was fine, until he came out to the mound the first time and left him in.

      But bringing aceves in? oh cmon

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Teix is due for a hut. Let’s hope he blasts one.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          *Sigh* ignore that

    • Hova

      Agreed. Please don’t second guess Girardi there. CC was dealing and he’s shown he can work out of trouble time and time again. Aceves couldn’t get the job done. Now we just gotta stop the bleeding and score in the 9th.

  • TJ

    Maybe Hughes is the 8th inning guy, also what do we do with Wang and his 22 ERA

  • pat

    Hahah niiice.

  • Hova

    I hope Bruney gets healthy super fast. Aceves has been solid for us, but Bruney has more of an eighth inning makeup IMHO.

  • Jobamania

    Why am i not surprised Coke is sucking?

    COKE IS TERRIBLE
    ACEVES PITCHES TO CONTACT, HE GIVES UP HITS TOO, GENIUS MOVE

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

    Ok, stop fucking around. Bring in Mo.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    u walk him on 4 pitches hes not gonna swing at the 3-0 count.

  • Jay J

    after the 7th was over, coke or aceves should’ve been in… once u got to the 4th hitter in the inning, u dont bring one of them in than… thats when u bring in Mo. Girardi fucked everything up, sorry… but where’s Sweet Lou?

  • DGeezy

    these games are taking years off my life

  • TJ

    Veras sucks

  • Reggie C.

    We need to trade for Huston Street. ASAP.

    • http://www.teamnerdrage.com leokitty

      Why is that your reaction to this game when the root of the problem in this here was leaving the starter in too long?

      • Reggie C.

        CC doesn’t take the mound in the 8th if Huston Street is pitching the 8th.

  • Dorian

    VERAS!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK

  • Nick L

    would’ve liked Phil in that spot for a nice strike out, to bad Wang is terrible and needed to waste him yesterday.

  • Ant

    This game I think I can legitimately blame Girardi. You don’t know if Mo woulda gotten out of it but I would have given you a hell of a better chance.

    I can’t wait to hear his excuse for not going to Mo.

    • Drew

      Uh, probably because it was the 8th inning with no outs.

      • Lanny

        They shouldn’t need 6 outs from Mo in a June game. They shouldn’t need 6 outs from him in Game 7. Get some pen help.

        • V

          Oh, look, Lanny. The Yankees must be losing.

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

        So what? 3-4-5 was due up with the tying run on second and the go ahead run on third. Fuck the goddamn save and have Rivera pitch to the them and let Aceves get the ninth inning.

        • Nick L

          don’t you think he would have just stayed in though.

        • Drew

          Um. Is that how managers do it? I generally agree with that logic too, the people that manage MLB teams though, do not.

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

            And, IMO, it’s fucking stupid.

    • Nick L

      it could have been Hughes, and most likely would have been, had not Wang only gone 2+ yesterday.

  • Drew

    Don’t worry everyone, Veras is warming.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Hey there we go!

    • AJ

      Lmao I was thinking the same thing.

  • mick

    If Coke holds them we’ll bring the winning run to the plate next inning.

  • nathan

    Is crying an option… or shud i just not watch this team… i cant stop supporting them and yearning for a win

  • E-ROC

    Jose Veras is warming up. Hopefully, he doesn’t ever take the mound in this game.

    • Reggie C.

      i can’t remember the last time he took the mound.

      • Zach

        lets keep it that way

    • mick

      or any other game……..

  • Lanny

    No one walks people quite like Coke. Makes one long for Marte to get healthy.

  • Dorian

    If he gets extra bases. I might go to bed.

  • Jobamania

    VARITEK!

  • chriskeo

    Thank God

  • Accent Shallow

    Hey, a second out. Hopefully they can get to the 9th only down one run. Argh.

  • TJ

    Really these games suck, but the lead would only be two games for Boston with the rest of June, July, August and September left.

    • Accent Shallow

      Of course it’s not the end of the world, but it’s damn depressing.

      • TJ

        Ridiculous, way too early in the season to get that up, or down.

  • stuart

    Disgrace a total disgrace.. there batters in the 8th totally battle.. CC hung a pitch to NICK GREEN..nick green is a career scrub…

    the yanks try to hit homeruns with brain dead cano and great baserunning for nick the moron swisher..

    nice series way to be embarrased.

    nice 4 pitch walk coke to big papi, why the hell did the ybring you in???

    friggin total disgrace……

    • Andy Stankiewicz

      You are correct sir.

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      TEHH WORLD ISS KRUMBLIN”’1!!1!1!!!. Nah I agree with you. It’s totally frustrating. But at the end of the day, realize you have no outcome on these games. Your bad days don’t stop their lives, don’t let their’s stop yours.

  • gxpanos

    I loved that. Eighth inning; Yanks up 2 runs; and…the closer they get to blowing it, the closer Mo gets to his seat back in the BP.

    So much wrong in this kind of situation, and one that could be so easily remedied.

  • Raf

    Veras warming up in this situation just shows how depleted the pen is

  • Jay J

    You just feel bad for CC here… it’ll make him look bad on paper

  • e mills

    all the whiners are forgetting that Leche is due up. It’ll be OK

    • e mills

      eek! nevermind what am I talking about

  • pc69

    Came in 1 game up, going home head between their legs and 2 games out. Poor defense, poor hitting, poor fundamentals.

    Hope it is out of their system.

    • handtius

      giving up already…good.

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      Poor base running..

  • TJ

    So much baseball left this year. Impossible to know if these games will mean anything.

    • Lanny

      0-8 vs the team you are competing with and your biggest rival means something.

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

        Look at who shows up? Where were you when they were winning?

    • Charlie

      0-8 against the fucking RED SOX means something, if not in the standings, then certainly in the yankees’ heads.

  • Lanny

    Girardi makes some bonehead moves but can you really blame him for sticking with CC with the disasters he has in that pen?

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

      I don’t mind him sticking with CC up to the Drew single. I have a problem with him not using Rivera in the most important situation of the game.

    • Jobamania

      nope, leaving C.C. was fine until he gave up the first 2 hits, no outs.

      okay even keeping him in then was slightly understandable.

      But bringing in aceves, a guy who gives up base hits, pitches to contact?

      CMON.

    • giselle

      not when he can bring in mariano!

  • Yankees_Universe

    that fucking walk to the midget killed the whole thing..

  • Ant

    It’s pretty funny that we, as in us bloggers, can grasp the whole bring in your best releiver in the most important time of that game no matter what late inning it is, but the people who are paid, aka the managers, are seemingly oblivious to it.

  • pat

    PHIL COKE FUCKIN SUCKS FUCK THIS SHIT

    • handtius

      excpt he did well.

      • pat

        I knoww, I was mocking the outrage expressed by all the dbags here

        • handtius

          I should have know…the over sarcastic CAPS and you’re not lanny/bo/axl/etc.

  • handtius

    we got this. we got it.

    • e mills

      I’m with you

  • BigBlueAL

    Look nobody here is upset with leaving CC to start the 8th because of the current bullpen. BUT the problem is Girardi has so little faith in the bullpen, justifiably so, that he tried to force extra pitches out of CC and this isnt the first time it has happened this season.

    If the Yankees had a better bullpen CC wouldnt have had to start the 8th. I like Aceves, but a situation like tonight is not what he is best suited for. Granted Bruney coming back should help some, but he isnt the mosr durable pitcher in the world.

    • Bob C

      im upset sorry, the bullpen has been halfway decent recently and you just cant put CC out with that many pitches… not only for this game but for the rest of the season as he has pitched way above his career average pitches per game this year and he will be with the team (hopefully) for 7 years, you just cant risk him and you have to rely on the pen

  • Reggie C.

    another round of magic required. please.

  • Double T

    top of the lineup and nothing would be sweeter than getting some funs off his ass!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Top of the order we need this game yanks.

    Its only one run. C’mon DJ, Damon, and Tex!!!!!! Save Girardi’s arse!

  • Double T

    *runs

  • Dorian

    Know who would have been a great option? Phil Hughes

    • JobaWockeeZ

      He pitched yesterday. They won’t bring him in.

    • pc69

      and you called me unintelligent.

  • TJ

    Sweeps happen, Yanks can gain two cames back in the next two days. Too soon to start freaking. This is not the NFL.

  • Ed

    Frustrating. I think what is the worst part is CC gave the team exactly what they needed through 7 and poor bullpen management is going to make a blow opportunity the story. Barring a comeback.

  • Jay J

    Nolan Ryan a Free Agent?

  • stuart

    TJ with the usual babble. long season blah blah blah.

    that is true what about swishers 2 moroninc baserunning mistakes the last 2 games… no big deal?

    How about there lack of clutch hitting? Minor blip..

    How about 0 and 8 against 1 team??? Means nothing…

    How about Cano never getting a big hit??? Minor issue……..

    BULLsh-t………

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Oh shut up. You want this team to be bad? Go to the Red Sox bandwagon. I’m sick of this.

      • Charlie

        how does he not have every right to complain about those things?

    • pat

      you just posted the same exact thing like 10 comments up , we all saw it the first time.

      • Charlie

        i didn’t know that part.

    • Zach

      Yeah they’re a .500 team and 10 games behind 1st

  • http://www.geeks2you.net Marc

    I wish we had some bp pitchers that we could trust. There aren’t ANY!!

    • http://www.geeks2you.net Marc

      Except for Mo…

      Are we Joba to teh 8th!!?!?@!@!##! yet????

  • dkidd

    we’re winning this game

    come on captain!

    • Charlie

      No, we’re fucking not

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Nice confidence for your team.

      • handtius

        go away…please…just leave. you’re not a fan.

  • TJ

    Both teams will probably make the playoffs, this will be decided in October.

  • Charlie

    PEople who keep complaining about everyone being mad at Girardi there are the ones who should shut the fuck up. HE is just an awful manager, with a terrible feel for the game.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      *golf clap*

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

      That is something I disagree with but he has made two boneheaded calls in the last two games.

      • Nick L

        its not his fault his Bpen cant perform, CC was coming out one way or another.

        • Charlie

          no, you’re wrong

  • DGeezy

    we have the top of the order up, FIND A WAY TO grind out AT LEAST 1 damn run in this inning

  • pc69

    There is another case that supports Bill James’ closer argument.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Come on Yanks if the mets could come back against ya we could to.

  • Dorian

    Good AB’s. That’s all i ask for.

  • Jobamania

    the captain needs to show why he’s the captain right here.

  • TJ

    The NFL mentality her is bit histrionic. Some here might be Raider fans.

  • e mills

    I PH Posada for Damon

    • Accent Shallow

      That’s crazy talk.

  • Drew

    Girardi couldn’t win there. Bring in Mo for the 8th, take him out in the 9th, someone blows the save, people will flip. Joe went to his non-Mo reliable arm out there he blew it. He sticks with CC, CC blows it, people will flip that CC should’ve been pulled. At some point, Joe’s men need to do their jobs. If they can’t get it done, bring in people that can.

    • Accent Shallow

      1st and 2nd, up 1, no outs? Who else can you trust, other than Mo? Every any other reliever in the game is on thin ice there. It doesn’t matter who’s in the pen.

      • Drew

        Obviously Joe didn’t want him for 6 outs, nor 5.

  • Hova

    Last night I said I would give my left hand for a win against Papelbon. Tonight I offer both of my hands.

  • Jay J

    can u fit luck in your pocket?

  • Dorian

    1 Bad AB

  • Jobamania

    what the HELL was that jeter? ANOTHER WEAK HACK GROUNDER?! WHAT THE FUCK

  • Joba-to-the-pen

    BigBlueAL:

    Same thing with A.J.Burnett.He once pitched 7 strong innings giving up 3 runs.Then because of the pen went out in the 8th and gave up a hit and a walk and the bullpen came in and gave up the two runs.

    So a strong performance of 7 innings became a bad start because of the pen.If pitching the 8th innings is so easy I wonder why none of these pitchers can do it.

  • Double T

    I never knew Green was actually a white version of Ozzie Smith

    • Zach

      A full white version of Jeter

      Sheffield’d

  • Bill R

    what did i say we wont even get a fucking hit!

  • BigBlueAL

    1-0 pitch, swings away and hits a pussy chopper up the middle. Nice AB.

  • Andy Stankiewicz

    Nick Green > Jeter………..In this series anyway.lol.

  • DGeezy

    wow we cant get a fuckin break..nick green is getting big hits & making big plays

  • pc69

    Never thought I would see a Yankee team be Boston’s bitch. Stunning.

  • Hova

    Tomorrow Fatcessa will demand the Yankees trade for Bronson Arroyo and move Joba to the bullpen. Will not be listening to WFAN tomorrow.

  • Raf

    ugh

  • pc69

    That’s it folks. 2 games back.

  • Bill R

    FUCK THIS TEAM!

    • handtius

      and fuck you too. go root for the redsox you badwagon fuck.

  • Buddy

    Is Papelbon going to being doing that weird face shit his whole career?? When he turns, like 35, is going to be like, “Hmmmm, this whole intense face thing is a little juvenile”…

    • Hova

      Say what you want about him man. The dude is a beast. There are only three guys I would trust to close a game for me. Mo, Papsmear and K-Rod. That’s it. The rest aren’t even in the same universe.

      It’ll be ok, his shoulder’s due to explode soon.

    Tex one of ur biggest at bat of the season please take him deep.

  • Drew

    Save us Teix.

    I have never felt like this. I feel like sobbing.

      dude its baseball in june

    • TJ

      Please tell me you’ve watched a season of baseball before.

    • Pasqua

      This is worse than 2004? I highly doubt it.

  • TJ

    Odd, but that’s baseball. I’m not thrilled with a sweep, but they can’t win every series, baseball is a game of streaks both hot and cold.

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

    WHAT THE FUCK? That pitch was so ridiculously framed, and it’s called a strike.

  • Raf

    just get on base here Teix.

  • Reggie C.

    Work it Teixeira … keep this inning alive.

  • Dorian

    JESUS CHRIST KAY WE KNOW

  • Andy Stankiewicz

    Thank you sir may I have another?
    I am freaking happy the Yanks do not have to see this team until August 6th.
    The Yankees have no answers for this team right now.None.
    They are the Yankees DADDY !!
    Now the Yanks can lick their wounds agaisnt the Mets and Nats.
    PATHETIC !!!!!!!!

      You’re a pathetic Yankee fan whos going to be jumping up and down in october, i told you they’d win! i told you they’d win!

  • daniel aka bryce harper

    This is the kind of game that could convert you to B-Jobberism. So painful

    • Andy Stankiewicz

      If Joba pitched the 8th Yanks win. Bottom line. Well that is what Francesa will say tomorrow.

    • Accent Shallow

      Joba couldn’t hold a one run lead in a pivotal playoff game, clearly he doesn’t have the stomach to be a big-time relief pitcher!

      (I kid, but I’m surprised that that’s not the meme from the media, rather than “Joba must be in the pen!”)

  • pat

    Wowsers, that one killed.

  • Accent Shallow

    Well, Tex did his job. DFA everyone else, please.

  • Jobamania

    un fucking real.

    Get out of here

  • V

    I hate these umpires. Pure and simple, it’s tough to win games when your opponents get an extra foot on the strike zone than you do.

    • Raf

      the zone early on was working for Penny but CC got some wide calls too

    • pc69

      Sorry this is not on the umpires. Yankees got out played, out pitched and out coached.

    • Tom Zig

      Well going 0-2 with RISP the first game, 2-15 in the second, and 1-11 in the third sure doesn’t help any.

      I can’t even blame the umpires for this. We suck. We saw it all this series. Starting pitching blow ups, base running gaffes, errors, defensive misplays that should have been errors, lack of hitting with RISP, and last but not least a bullpen blow up.

      • Zach

        “We suck”

        They sucked this 3 game series.

        Yankees have a better rotation ERA, better line up, and scored how many runs off their unhittable bullpen?

  • Raf

    just out of control. this is ridiculous.

  • pc69

    This team is going to lose 2 of 3 to the Mets. This will effect them.

    • Accent Shallow

      I’ll bet you a cheapo baseball reference sponsorship that that will not be the case. Deal?

    • handtius

      I love it when “true fans” predict the yankees losing.

      • pc69

        Whatever dude. Look at how dejected the team is. No amount of slobbering is going to change the fact that they are owned by the Sox and are in a funk. Plus, their pitching is struggling and they seem to have fallen into that “can’t hit with RISP” again.

  • E-ROC

    ‘Ol well.

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

    Fuck.

    Well…2 games out with 101 to play. I’ll take it.

    • Nick L

      i think that is a reasonable comment, i agree.

  • JobaJr

    In, Fucking, Credible.

  • TJ

    Kill yourself, yanks are a whopping 2 games behind!!!

  • BigBlueAL

    This weekend should be interesting. A battle of 2 teams coming off tough series losses against the teams in their division who owns them like little bitches.

    • Raf

      i think the Mets were 4-1 against the Phils this year up to this series. not in the same bitch situation the Yankees are in

  • Jake H

    Why this lost sucks ass. This is the first series with a completely healthy team. Oh wait our BP still is without it’s best 2 arms. I do blame girardi. You need to take c.c out after the midget. He was all over the place and was gassed.

    • Ed

      I think once green got the single CC needed to come out. No reason to put a tired pitcher or a relief pitcher in a 2 on no out situation

  • Bill R

    FUCK GIARDI, FUCK ACEVES, FUCK CASHMAN, FUCK JETER, FUCK, DAMON, FUCK SWISHER, FUCK THEM ALL! I AM NOT WATCHING A SINGLE FUCKING GAME THIS WEEKEND, THEY CAN SUCK MY ASS!

    • Zach

      there’s a true fan right there

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      !!!!!1!!1111!! I demand a divorce!!1!1!!

  • Nick L

    i guess the only thing left to say is go get’em tomorrow

  • Buddy

    LOL, you kids are cute… Yankees losing to the Red Sox in June is SOOOOO important. Go out and get drunk and laid… Freakin’ pansies.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      +1000000

    • TJ

      Exactly, shoot yourselves do us a favor for christ’s sake.

  • Ed

    Tough to watch. Tough to listen to sox fans tomorrow at work, but we got a lot of season to go.

  • http://www.geeks2you.net Marc

    I am now considering becoming a B-Jobber

  • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

    Sorry. This loss pisses me off. Not nearly as much as everyone else. Sort of funny watching all these people line up to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge. Tons of baseball left folks.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    im going to sleep this one really hurts.

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

    On the bright side…remember 2004.

    • Tom Zig

      Bright side? I’d say this might be worse.

      • Pasqua

        How in the world could this be worse?

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

        Well, it would be great to re-live that from the Red Sox’ standpoint.

  • Smitt Dog

    You know how this will end right? Tim McCarver talking about this series in October when he points out how baseball is crazy when the Yankees start the 9th, 8 runs up and 3 outs away from sweeping the Sox in the ALCS.

    We will be back from this, this happens (even if it shouldn’t)

    • Hova

      Its never happened in our history bro. We don’t lose 8 straight to this team. The optimism is good, but we’ve all played some level of organized sports. When one team beats up on you over and over, it gets in your head at a certain point. Tonight would have been a confidence builder to take into August when we see these bastards again. But it didn’t happen.

      • Pete

        Well, look at it this way — think of how much of a confidence bulider it’ll be when we DO beat them. Better to get this ugliness out of the way now.

        I’m pretty sure we’ll take at least 7-8 from these boobs by September.

  • pc69

    Jesus, ESPN already has the Red Sox win posted…it just gets worse by the day.

  • BigBlueAL

    You people who are trying to make this 0-8 start vs the Red Sox seem like its no big deal, I cant imagine what your reaction would be if the Yankees were 8-0 vs the Red Sox this season.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Except the Yankees were practically a different team during the first five games, which everyone seems to be forgetting. This was the first time CC Sabathia has faced the Red Sox this season, and this series was the first time the Red Sox saw A-Rod.

    • Pasqua

      I can imagine it…”Hey! We have a 6 game lead in the division!”

  • Dorian

    I’m not even angry. Or sick. Just sad.

  • Hova

    This is almost as bad as the ALCS in 2004. No words to describe the pain as a fan and lack of pride on this team. How can you let a team take you 8 straight without a win?

    • TJ

      The ALCS isn’t played in June, if it was then the season might be over, somehow the rest of the summer might count. The 2004 ALCS comparison is nonsense. That’s like comparting a scooter crash to 9/11,

  • TJ

    Yanks lost 5 in a row in early May and then won 9 in a row in May. Prior to this series they won 5 out of 7, now 5 out of 10. Because it’s Boston people are ill, its the same as being swept by the Royals. Baseball is about streaks.

    • Tom Zig

      It isn’t just because it is Boston. They are the only team that could give us a run for the division title. That is an 8 game swing in their favor. That is HUGE.

    • BigBlueAL

      No it is not the same. Boston is in our freaking division, it is an 8 game swing in the standings. Losing 5 in a row to other teams may not be as bad because Boston could be doing the same or only winning 1 or 2 in that same stretch which wouldnt hurt as bad.

      The Red Sox have gained 8 fucking games on the Yankees in the standings by beating them head-to-head so far this season. Plus in the end of the season you do realize if both teams are in the playoffs the head-to-head is a tie-breaker for the division.

      • TJ

        It’s the same. You hate the Red Sox and so do I. Each loss only counts for one game. The tie breaker is meaningless and sometimes the Wildcard team has a better match up. making the playoffs is all that matters and the it’s all about who gets hot, not the home field.

        • Hova

          I’m so sick of hearing people say its just another game and its just another team in baseball. This is sports. Do you think the Giants say that about the Cowboys or Eagles? Think the Knicks said that about the Bulls and Heat in the 90s? Nah man. They hated those teams and they never thought of them as “just another team”. They got up for those games. They played with an extra fire that you didn’t see against the “other” teams.

          • TJ

            The Giants and Dallas don’t play 18 times a year. The edge of the series is not the same as it used to be. Later in the year it will mean more. Relax. If the Yanks fall more than 5 or 6 games out, then be concerned.

            • Hova

              Dude, be honest. If in August we are still within a couple games in the division (up 2 or down 2) and haven’t won one against them yet, you wouldn’t care right? You just seem like the type of guy who doesn’t care how much a team owns you in the regular season. And that’s cool and your entitled to your opinion. But some of us just hate the Sox more than anything else.

              I’m gonna do my best to understand your side and hope that we come back stronger in August and kick some ass.

        • BigBlueAL

          Well obviously I think the Yankees are a lock to win the WC at worst so I am not one who is panicking and thinking this team sucks, the season is over blah blah blah.

          Problem is to me the Yankees and Red Sox clearly are the best teams in the AL so I look at them as naturally the main competition to make it to the WS. People dont remember even in 2003 and 2004 the season series, at it has been basically this decade, is usually really close with the season series being either split or one team barely winning the season series over the other.

          Being 0-8 against the Red Sox is definitely alarming, considering the Red Sox are nowhere near being a finished product just as the Yankees arent either. We all know Theo will make some moves and this Red Sox team will be only tougher come October. Obviously hopefully so will the Yankees but I just dont have real faith in this team, with this manager, in a big series vs the Red Sox.

          • andyexcuse

            I was thinking along those same lines. In 2003, the Sox had nearly caught up to the Yanks, but not quite, just short. The Yanks had that extra bit that would win them 51 games out of 100 over the Sox, and that one extra would be when it counted. Neither team is perfect, they’ve both got some glaring holes, but these two teams are the best in baseball. All of these games could have gone one way or the other. Closely matched, with a tiny edge to the Sox this year. I honestly think that it comes down to the front office putting the right guys on the field. The Sox have a team, the Yanks have a bunch of mercenary ringers. This will be close, and as a Sox fan, I’m not looking forward to September/October when we’re neck and neck. I’m rooting for my team, but I predict a nasty postseason series. May the best team win.

    • Hova

      Dude, what the hell are you talking about? The Red Sox are the team that you will fight for the AL title with. There is a mental edge in sports. Do you think the Cavs said “Its just the Bulls” when Jordan would beat them time and time again in the late 80s?

      • TJ

        The Rays are still hanging around. It’s June crybaby. Too much baseball left, it’s not the NBA or the NFL. The difference in playing Boston .500 would be that we would be ahead by two games, would that give the Yanks a playoff spot in June?

  • Drew

    At least I got a cool new Palm Pre.

    • handtius

      dude! Best comment of the night. do you like it?

      • Drew

        Sick as hell so far bro. Only had it for a few hours though.

  • Dorian

    Should we think about putting Joba in the bullpen? DAMMIT I’m out of sorts. But should we?

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      Then sign Roger Clemens to a 1 year $500M deal.

      • NYQ

        ha ha

    • NYQ

      I agree we NEED a better bullpen. Either put Joba there or make a trade BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      No. This series looks drastically different if Joba pitches a game; no doubt he would have pitched better than either Wang or Burnett.

  • NYQ

    I can not believe this. The Yankees were cruising all season, but suck against the Red Sox. WTF
    Also Michael Kay just made me feel worse with his commentary after the game, but he is just saying what we are thinking. Thanks for pushing that knife deeper in my heart Kay.

  • Reggie C.

    0-8.

    The offense needs a lift. We should’ve knocked Penny out the game. The ‘pen needs an eight inning man. Confidence level definitely took a hit.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      We just need to get more clutch. So many wasted opportunities while the Red Sox used all of their opportunities.
      The bullpen will get Marte and Bruney so I am not that worried.
      The lack of clutch hitting is astounding though. We can hit no problem until someone goes to second base.

      • NYQ

        Thank God MARTE coming back. He will definitely be the rock of the bullpen. He will be (and has been) as inconsistent as the rest of them.

        • handtius

          Look at his career #s. he has been. he’s been injured.

          • NYQ

            Both this year and last year?
            Remember he gave up a game winning jack at Fenway too.

            • Zach

              His shoulder issue dates back to the WBC and he gave up 4 of his 11 runs in one appearance last year

              • NYQ

                I may be a little bias because I was at that game. He just just throwing BP

  • Pasqua

    If they can hang in and return to form, the only thing these losses will have an impact on is a potential division tie. If it comes down to that, we’re screwed. But with 100 games to go, I’ll take my chances that we can do it without beating the Sawx.

  • thurdonpaul

    ehh it is june, but it still sucks

  • mick

    Cashman must fix this bullpen immediately!!!….No bjobber foolishness either.We’re probably going to have to raid our farm system to fix this disaster thru trades.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Or we can call up Melancon in August and wait soon for the return of Bruney and Marte.
      But hey I agree no BS B-jobber shit.

      • Nick L

        agreed

      • mick

        Bruney will be a great addition….Melancon is getting hit some and seems to be having periods of wildness SWB …..Marte can’t be sure of what we get!!

        • mick

          If the BP gets fixed we have the best team in baseball!!!Even without a better BP we still make the playoffs.

  • bonestock94

    That was less than pleasant. I like our chances of getting back in first this weekend. Phillies are hot and the Mets are beat up. As for tonight I’ll just watch the basketball game and hope for cool facials or something to get over this loss, blegh

  • Dorian

    This feels like coming to school, thinking the bully isn’t there every day, and every single day right when you think you’re home free, he shakes you for your lunch money.

  • YankeeScribe

    Not the end of the world but it’s definately going to hurt the team mentally. I can’t see how people can act like these losses don’t matter…

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Because there’s still the majority of the season and many more game against the Sox this year. No one is saying it doesn’t count but this is way out of proportion.
      Which thinking about it is okay since we’re 0-8 against them but still. It’s actually not as bad as today then yesterday.

    • Pasqua

      They absolutely do matter, no doubt. I want to throw a shoe through my television. But I think what we have to take away is that even though we’ve lost 8 TIMES to the Sox in 8 GAMES we are only two out. What that means is that even though we suck against our rivals, we must be doing something right…and that’s beating the shit out of virtually every other team we play. The Sox have NOT done that. Just keep your fingers crossed that the trend continues. If it does, we’ll be alright.

    • Scooter

      Exactly how does it hurt the team mentally? Wang either straightens himself out, or Hughes is back in. AJ is a 2nd half pitcher. CC pitched a heck of a game, and the team couldn’t crush a crappy pitcher when they had him on the ropes. The 6 shutout innings from Penny killed.

      It hurts FANS mentally – b/c we all know pinheads in Red Suck National who’ll rub it in. This team seems pretty resilient. This Sox team isn’t scary, and this has been flukey IMO. The trolls just make it seem much worse than it is.

      Wait for Bruney and Marte (and Melancon hopefully). If this crap happens in September, I’ll be more worried.

  • Manimal

    I blame it on the Curse of Big Papi’s jersey.

  • Sic

    Well, “Red Sox are our Daddys”

    they started winning after Pedro said that famous quote. I’m gonna say that everyday from now on until the Yankees turn it around.

    • Pasqua

      Yes. That will do it, I have no doubt.

  • Tom Zig

    I know throwing strength isn’t as important as range in the outfield, but seriously we have some awful arms out there. (except Melky)

  • dkidd

    yankees versus mets. somehow, the red sox will sweep that series as well

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

      I chuckled.

  • Dorian

    Joba Tomorrow. That is all.

  • Ace

    The Red Sox are a flat-out better team than the Yankees in every facet of the game.

    • Tom Zig

      Not really, we just are playing like Low-A Charleston

    • Manimal

      I could argue the opposite but I’m too depressed right now to right an informative comment.

    • DGeezy

      we pitched poorly, sloppy defense & baserunning & poor hitting with RISP…the red sox are a VERY GOOD team but we sure gave them a hand in beating us.

    • bonestock94

      lol, keep dreaming

    • Riddering

      That made me LOL.

      Thanks.

  • netter

    In baseball, things even out. Yankees will lose as many close games as win them. Yankees will win a bunch of games against Boston now that they have lost a bunch of games. Those wins are like money in the bank.

  • Reggie C.

    Poignant GM commercial.

    Yanks too need to get down to business.

  • Manimal

    Edwar+Albaladejo today, 5.2 innings, 0 ER, 7k’s

    • Zach

      bring them back up huh?

  • Drew

    Swisher needs a crash-course in running bases and catching fly balls. It sucks that guys make complete mental lapses that could cost the team a run or two or ten. Swisher looks ridiculous with that mohawk, he also looks ridiculous out on the diamond and in the field.

  • Nick L

    if not for the 2 bad starts from Burnett and Wang, the bullpen may have been better. Hughes, Robertson…. one thing always leads to another.

  • TJ

    Injuries will also matter in the long run, no telling who could go out, on either team and under what circumstance. Tampa could get hot and blow both away and the WC could go to another division. Both Bostan and NY could miss the playoffs and all this crying would be for nothing.

  • Sic

    That Ass hole Swisher.

  • Bob Stone

    CC deserved a better fate tonight. This is all so doscouraging. But we play again tomorrow. Let’s start a new win streak and root for the Phils against the BoSox. Even though 0-8 has been painful, I am really enjoying the Yanks, BoSox, Mets, Phillies all playing against each other at the same time.

  • donttradecano

    Ill take the Losses now as along as the Ws come in october.

  • Jobamania

    Well, i’m going to vent here.

    keeping C.C. to start the 8th was fine, i would have done the same.
    now, after he gave the first 2 hits and he came to the mound, u shouldnt go back and keep him in, but even then its SLIGHTLY understandable
    so he takes him out after the drew single. fine

    BUT FOR ALFREDO FUCKING PASTA? ARE YOU JOKING ME? THE GUY LIVES AND DIES BY PITCHING TO CONTACT. HE GIVES UP HITS, HE PITCHES TO CONTACT, HES NOT A FUCKING 8TH INNING GUY. ESPECIALLY WITH 2 MEN ON BASE IN A 1 RUN BALLGAME U SHITFACE.

    UN FUCKING REAL, AND THEN YOU WONDER WHY YOUR BULLPEN SUCKS ASS, MAYBE ITS BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO FUCKING MANAGE IT, U DONT KNOW HOW TO SET ROLES YOU SACK OF SHIT.

    • handtius

      Actually he as 24 STRIKE OUTS IN 24 INNINGS. SO HE IS A STRIKE OUT PITCHER OUT OF THE PEN. AHHH LOUD NOISES!!!

      • Jobamania

        lol dude, stats lie. You and i BOTH know he’s a strikeout pitcher

        • Jobamania

          not* lol

        • handtius

          yes we do know he is a strike out pitcher.

    • pat

      Alf has 24k in 24.1 IP.

  • Greg C

    I think CC should have come out sooner ( maybe after the first baserunner in the 8th) and gone to Mo. But I really don’t get a lot of the screaming about Aceves “pitching to contact” and “not striking anyone out.”

    Coming into this game:

    Aceves: 24.1 innings, 24 so, 20 hits

    I didn’t know a K per inning and allowing less than a hit per inning was pitching to contact and not striking people out.

    Mo ( who I would go with regardless ): 25.1 in, 30 k, 26 h

  • Reggie C.

    We need to get Huston street and his 1.08 whip to the Bronx. Can’t rely on Bruney or Marte remaining healthy. Aceves’s lack of power resulted in this mini-blow up. The kids simply haven’t logged sufficient innings or confidence. Street is the answer.

    • Accent Shallow

      Two problems with this:

      1) It’s a little early for the Rockies to be selling
      2) Street is good, but he’s not that good.

      • Zach

        3. He’s pitched in OAK/COL, not exactly NYY
        4. As always, what are you prepared to give up?

      • Reggie C.

        doesn’t read like you’re totally against the idea. I think Street can do a terrific job in stabilizing this ‘pen. Is he a 1.08 whip pitcher in the AL east ?? Probably not. But his career whip is 1.07. So….

        Street is definitely available right now. The Rox are willing to part with him, but it’ll cost us 1 good prospect for sure.

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

          And I don’t think a good prospect is worth giving up for him. Someone of the Kontos variety is about as high as I’d go. I would not be willing to part with a guy like MacAllister for 2/3 of a season of Huston Street.

    • NYQ

      Agreed

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

      If they want Kontos, sure. If they want Z-Mac, hell no.

      • Reggie C.

        And that’s where we differ Matt.

        I would give up Zach McAllister. Cashman kept Hughes exactly for this scenario … to utilize young rising talent like McAllister in trades that could bring the Yanks over the top.

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

          I don’t think 2/3 a season of Huston Street is worth 6+ controlled seasons of a potential #2.

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

            But, I will say this, Reggie, I wouldn’t be devastated if the trade was made. I’d be a little annoyed, but I could live with it.

            • Lanny

              Who ever called Z McAllister a #2? The same people who said IPK was?

  • Russell NY

    Can we start up a “how good do i feel about the future of this organization” poll right now? lol

  • Bob Stone

    Pretty sad that we play three important games against our biggest rival and we don’t even get Mariano in for a single at bat! UGH!

  • Jamal G.

    So the Yankees enetered Tuesday with the best record in the AL and a one-game lead in the division. After three losses they are ‘pathetic losers’ and the manager should be fired. Yankees fans are teh awesome!1!!1!!

    • Accent Shallow

      No no no, I don’t want Girardi fired, I want everyone whose last names aren’t “Teixeira” or “Rivera” DFAed.

    • Dorian

      Dude I’m a big believer in the regular season being a long journey but this is different. This hurts.

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

      Only an untrue Yankee fan would write something like that, Jamal.

    • NYQ

      This is the reason they are awesome because we are hurt by the loses and celebrate the victories. Yankee fans (who are not posers) live and die with the team. We probably take the loses harder than the team actually does.

      • NYQ

        Some ideas for Girardi-
        1. Get rid of Berroa- DFA his ass. Get Shelley up here with his power bat up here ASAP.
        2. Get rid of Veras. Call up anyone, but get him away!!!!!!!!!
        3. Put Hughes back in the rotation- I know Wang is a FORMER 19 game winner, but we want to win NOW.
        4. Teach your teams the basics like running and defense.

        A side note to Cashmen
        1. Get a reliever- trade McAllister or some other prospects.

        That was supposed to be a + infinity.

  • rsam

    yankee brothers just relax i would prefer lose all 18 games to the red sox as long as we win the world series.I REALLY MEAN IT.

    • NYQ

      Unfortunately the Al title will probably run through Boston.

  • Sic

    Why didn’t we fkng sign Daniel Bard ? Its Openheimer’s fault, we don’t have anyone decent in the bullpen.

  • Jobamania

    we need to end this fucking soft tosser experiment and get hard throwers back up here.

    Melancon?
    Robertson should DEFINITELY be considered for a higher role.
    Who else do we have that can strike people out?

      Aceves and his nearly 9 K/9 rate coming into today’s game. Oh, but he doesn’t throw 95 so that doesn’t count, right?

      • Bob Stone

        Good point!

      • Jobamania

        yeah, stats lie. Veras had a good era last year.

        Look at his minor league track record. and last year he had 30 IP 16 K’s

        • Manimal

          That has nothing to do with anything. Fact of the matter is Aceves has more K’s than you think.

          • Lanny

            Having K’s and being a shutdown late inning pitcher aren’t the same thing. Aceves is a good swingman. He’s not a pure set up man with great swing n miss stuff.

  • rsam

    The yankees will win number 27 this year and you can take it to the bank the red sox wont even make the playoff and you can take it to the bank.

    • NYQ

      Who will then win the wild card. ALCS preview Yanks vs. Boston- Battle Royale

  • rsam

    Time to evaluate the bull pen veras must go as well as coke

    • BIG BOY

      why should coke go? he’s our best lefty…
      cash needs to figure something out soon.

      • Charlie

        coke is not the problem at all. he’s not our best lefty reliever either, he’s our ONLY one. Veras should have been gone well over a month ago, get Melancon up here. Other than that, just start to trust david robertson and coke more, they’re the most reliable at this point.

  • Joe F.

    I think Girardi read all those articles comparing Aceves to Ramiro Mendoza and had a flashback to the 1999 ALCS, where Mendoza shut down the Red Sox. Aceves is a decent long man, but he is NOT Ramiro Mendoza

    • BIG BOY

      agreed.

  • Tom Zig

    Is this a record for most posts on 1 single thread?

    • NYQ

      Definitely- it is taking my computer forever to load

      • Bob Stone

        I have a 15 second delay when typing!

  • Bob Stone

    No – Now it’s a record.

  • Dorian

    I need Hal Steinbrenner to issue an ultimatum

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

      Why? Honestly, what good is that going to do? It’s not the front office’s fault that Girardi botched two situations in the last two games (last night’s sac bunt and today’s non-use of Mo).

      • Dorian

        It’s not for any specific reason, it would just make me feel better. It would make me laugh.

  • Dorian

    And guess what? We will all watch tomorrow.

  • Bob Stone

    658 posts to this thread. I think Ben, Joe and Mike were so disgusted, they all tossed their computers and can’t open a new thread. I’m leaving. This is too painfully slow.

  • Hova

    Would be awesome to hear something from George right about now. Miss that guy.

  • Charlie

    This was a fucking atrocious game. I’m still sick to my stomach over it. Terrible managing by Girardi, no clutch hitting outside of A-rod’s double, bad bullpen pitching as usual. I think Girardi is definitely the most to blame here because of the following: It’s the eighth inning, you’re up by 2. Your ace signed to a 7 year contract has thrown over 100 pitches. It’s cold and it’s pouring rain. He allows the first guy to reach, failing to put Nick Green away, the 1st indicator that he is getting tired. Then comes a walk where he was no where near the zone. 2nd indicator. So, you take him out, right? No, you leave him in, he allows an easy RBI single, and THEN you go to the bullpen. I’m not second guessing, either. I Would NOT have complained had Girardi gone to the pen to start the eighth. Bad, bad game. Bad, bad series. Nick Swisher better be benched tommorow for obvious reasons, and we better beat the shit out of the mets and nationals.

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

    The Jesus was 2-3 w/a Walk, Z-Mac had a decent game 6 innings, 5 hits, 2 runs, 1 earned run, 2 walks, and one strikeout. Mike Dunn had 3 Ks in 2 innings, Sanit blew the save, though. 0.1 innings, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER.

    Dunn now has 49 strikeouts in 36 innings.

  • NYQ

    I rather put AAA Scranton out there than this team.- at least they have a bullpen

  • Dorian

    FUCK, JETER IS SO FUCKING COOL. We’re all about to jump off a bridge and when asked if he had any questions about the mental makeup of his club he answered “Nope” wit a smile.

  • NYQ

    I accidentally posted this some where else on the page
    Some ideas for Girardi-
    1. Get rid of Berroa- DFA his ass. Get Shelley up here with his power bat up here ASAP.
    2. Get rid of Veras. Call up anyone, but get him away!!!!!!!!!
    3. Put Hughes back in the rotation- I know Wang is a FORMER 19 game winner, but we want to win NOW.
    4. Teach your teams the basics like running and defense.

    A side note to Cashmen
    1. Get a reliever- trade McAllister or some other prospects.

    • Charlie

      Girardi can’t do those first 2, that’s Cash’s job. But no, don’t trade McAllister. Everything else i agree

  • Stryker

    man, whoever’s been posting on the RAB twitter needs to take a chill pill.

  • YankeeScribe

    Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine the Yanks not being able to score vs Brad Penny

  • Lanny

    it isn’t hard to fix what’s wrong. You got 2 useless roster spots being taken by Berroa and Veras. Bring up a bat for the bench like Duncan who is raking in AAA and give Melancon another shot and keep him in low pressure innings at first. Get Wang fixed in long relief. Put Hughes back in the rotation. And trade for an 8th inning set up man to pair with a hopefully healthy Bruney and Marte.

    • Andrew

      LOL. Yeah, that’s why we’re 0-8 against Boston. Because Angel Berrora is occupying the all-important 25th man slot.

  • rsam

    NOW YOU SEE THE REASON WHITE SOX GOT RID OF SWISHER

    • Dorian

      I can’t imagine what Ozzie Guillen was thinking when he wud make those ridiculous blunders.

  • rsam

    BRING UP JACKSON ORDUNCAN BENCH SWISHER FOR A while .

  • rsam

    lanny good suggestions time for cshman to shake things up.

  • rsam

    we should go after halliday next year

  • Axl aka Tom Selleck

    This is REAL BAD. If Girardi still starts Wang on Wednesday…I’ll be front-line-and-center when he packs his bags and gets escorted out.

    The ONLY good thing out of tonight was ironically the great pitching of Brad Penny (horrible offense of the Yankees) because they have Clay Buchholz and John Smoltz waiting to come up and they can’t really get rid of such good pitching.

    Girardi is ruining the Yankees…the Yankees are again underachieving…and it’s back to pure embarrassment.

    Hate me all you want…it’s not going to change the embarrassment. Remember that.

      You really just need to find a bridge to jump off already.

        but i vowed never to do that until you had a daughter and i slept with her on her 16th birthday…

    i want to kill myself after that game
