Game 60 Spillover Thread III


A-Rod broke the last thread.

Categories : Game Threads


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

  2. e mills says:

    def broke it b/c of the roids

  3. Bob Stone says:

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

  4. Raf says:

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

  5. OmgZombies says:

    Absolutely perfect timing for Arod to get a hit.

  6. Reggie C. says:

    Arod got his.

  7. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Come on Cc quick inning right here.

  8. Chris says:

    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.

  9. Raf says:

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

  10. Dorian says:

    180 million reasons why

  11. That’s a double with Bobby Abreu out there.

  12. Jay J says:

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

  13. Andrew says:

    CC is still the player the game.

  14. Jeremy says:

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

  15. 0-2 hits = hair pullers.

    But then again, CC has very little hair…

  16. BigBlueAL says:

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

    • Accent Shallow says:

      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?

  17. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    double play Cc.

  18. Jay J says:

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

  19. Mike HC says:

    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.

  20. Jay J says:

    Baldelli looks stupid!

  21. Bob Stone says:

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

  22. Raf says:

    fuck yeah CC

  23. Accent Shallow says:

    Looks like Cervelli hangs out with Joba.

  24. Yankees_Universe says:

    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..

  25. pat says:

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

  26. Dorian says:


  27. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

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

  28. Nady Nation says:

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

  29. Jay J says:

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

  30. Double T says:

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

  31. Jake H says:

    C.C has been worth every single penny.

  32. dkidd says:

    good luck getting cc out of this game, joe

  33. Reggie C. says:

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

  34. Jay J says:

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

  35. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    That number looks so weird on Saito.

  36. Damn, it’s coming down.

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

  38. YankeeScribe says:

    Cervelli handles pitchers better than Posada

  39. BigBlueAL says:

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

  40. MattG says:

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

    • Zach says:

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

      Remy is off recovering from surgery for lung cancer.

  41. Accent Shallow says:

    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.

  42. Andy Stankiewicz says:

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

    • BigBlueAL says:

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

      • 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.

    • MattG says:

      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 says:

      Do you play defense too in baseball?

    • manimal says:

      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

  43. Dorian says:

    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.

  44. dkidd says:

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

  45. Matty Ice says:

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

  46. Jay J says:

    hey, we hit the big green thing out there…

  47. Double T says:

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

  48. Accent Shallow says:

    2008 Melky swings at that pitch.

  49. handtius says:

    Matsui is done.

  50. Mike Axisa says:

    Nice catch by Roc.

  51. Jay J says:

    Baldelli hasnt run out of luck…

  52. Raf says:

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

  53. Double T says:

    eh nice rescue catch I thought that was getting by

  54. I did not think he would catch that.

  55. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Damn it.

  56. Mike HC says:

    Damn. Sick play. That hit was slicing fast

  57. pat says:

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

  58. Jay J says:

    shouldve hit it to one-nut lowell.

  59. DGeezy says:

    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

  60. manimal says:

    Why isnt gardner running for matsui?

  61. Reggie C. says:

    Baldelli will miss a week of games.

  62. Jay J says:

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

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

    • handtius says:

      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!

    • A.D. says:

      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.

  64. MattG says:

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

  65. Bob Stone says:

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

  66. Jay J says:

    Over/Under 1K for Sabathia this inning.

  67. Double T says:

    Mexican Gangster up

  68. Raf says:

    wow that was a horrible swing

  69. Jay J says:

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

  70. Mike Axisa says:

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

  71. Jay J says:

    that 2nd pitch to PEDroia wasnt a strike?

  72. pc69 says:

    This is just stupid leaving CC in this game.

    • Dorian says:

      no my friend. you are unintelligent.

      • pc69 says:

        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.

  73. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

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

  74. YankeeScribe says:

    double play time?

  75. Chip says:

    CC not going to be in there for much longer

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

  77. Yankees_Universe says:

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

  78. Jay J says:

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

  79. Dorian says:

    Great move Joe.

  80. Chip says:

    Tough spot for Aceves to be coming in here

  81. DGeezy says:

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

  82. handtius says:

    shize. midgets and their tiny strike zones.

  83. You really should bring Mo in for this inning.

  84. Andy Stankiewicz says:

    I hate Pedroia but that was a great AB.

  85. pat says:

    good ab by pedroia

  86. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    A double play CC.

  87. Raf says:

    atta boy, let him pitch

  88. Chip says:

    Wow, absolutely shocked CC is staying in here.

  89. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:


  90. Jay J says:

    figures… luck > skill.

  91. DGeezy says:

    ugh this is not good

  92. BigBlueAL says:

    We are fucked.

  93. handtius says:

    damn it man…

  94. Jake H says:

    I hate the red sox so much.

  95. Double T says:


  96. E-ROC says:

    Straight to Mo?

  97. Chip says:

    Well that one backfired on them

  98. e mills says:

    pc69 was correct again

  99. Accent Shallow says:

    Aceves? Well, here’s a test . .

  100. Raf says:

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

  101. manimal says:

    CC lost the bite on his fastball toward the end.

  102. sic says:

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

  103. pat says:

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

  104. Tom Zig says:

    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?

  105. pc69 says:

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

  106. Jake K. says:

    Why not go to Mo here?

  107. Mike Axisa says:

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

  108. Ant says:

    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

  109. JobaWockeeZ says:

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

  110. Jay J says:

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

  111. Chip says:

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

  112. DGeezy says:

    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

  113. Bill R says:

    I can’t handle this!!!!!!!!!!

  114. manimal says:

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

  115. E-ROC says:

    C’mon Aceves!!!!!! Please!!!!

  116. Hova says:

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

  117. Dorian says:

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

  118. Accent Shallow says:

    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.

  119. Marc says:

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

  120. Double T says:

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

  121. 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.

  122. Jay J says:

    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 says:

      CC has always been pitching +100 pitch games.

      • Hova says:

        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.

  123. BigBlueAL says:

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

  124. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    We need a triple play :P

  125. Ant says:

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

  126. Jay J says:

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

  127. Reggie C. says:

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

  128. TJ says:

    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.

  129. John says:

    Cmon Ace…show them our pen is better!

  130. Double T says:

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

  131. manimal says:


  132. Bill R says:

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

  133. That was not a strike.

  134. Jay J says:

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

  135. e mills says:

    anyone on Gameday? that was def. a strike

  136. TJ says:

    Last pitch was strike 3

  137. pat says:

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

  138. Raf says:

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

  139. JobaWockeeZ says:

    This sucks, at least they didn’t score.

  140. manimal says:

    Pedroia wouldve been gunned at the plate

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

  142. E-ROC says:

    Can we get a damn groundball?

  143. TJ says:

    Bring in MO

  144. Bill R says:

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

  145. Ant says:

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

  146. John says:

    ohh damn

  147. Double T says:


  148. Accent Shallow says:


  149. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:


  150. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Fuck come on…

  151. DGeezy says:

    ugh this is horrible

  152. Jake H says:

    How can this team f stuff up this quickly?

  153. handtius says:

    This is bad luck nightmare.

  154. BigBlueAL says:

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

  155. Raf says:

    this is fucking unbelievable

  156. Dorian says:


  157. TJ says:

    are we really going to go 0-8

  158. Double T says:

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

  159. Jay J says:

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

  160. E-ROC says:

    Not a save situation anymore.

  161. sic says:


  162. Dela G says:


  163. manimal says:


  164. John says:

    OH FUCK….

  165. Ace now needs to throw his curve.

  166. pc69 says:

    Left CC in too long.

  167. Lanny says:

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

  168. manimal says:

    New spill over thread. STAT.

  169. Now put that…down and away.

  170. BigBlueAL says:

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

  171. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:


  172. Double T says:

    wow what kind of throw was that?

  173. manimal says:

    youve got to be fucking kidding me

  174. ARX says:

    Fuck this.

  175. John says:

    i blame this on Nick fukin Green for that leadoff single


  177. TJ says:

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


  178. JobaWockeeZ says:

    This is ridiculous

  179. Accent Shallow says:

    And Gardner lawn darts it. Argh.

    Clearly not Aceves’ night.

  180. Yankee1010 says:

    I could have kicked the ball harder than that Gardner.

  181. E-ROC says:

    Damn. Grit Gardner.

  182. Charlie says:

    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.

  183. What in the fuck was that, Gardner?

  184. sic says:

    Jesus Mary and Joseph.

  185. Raf says:

    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 says:

      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.

  186. BigBlueAL says:

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

  187. Ant says:

    Wow we really do deserve to lose this game

  188. Dela G says:

    this is unbelievable

  189. pat says:

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

  190. TJ says:

    Game over

  191. pc69 says:

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

  192. Double T says:

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

  193. The Mike Bloomberg ads are making this moment worse.

  194. Bill R says:

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

  195. Charlie says:

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

  196. YankeeScribe says:


  197. TJ says:

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

  198. Jobamania says:

    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

  199. Drew says:

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

  200. sic says:

    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.

  201. bonestock94 says:

    Not much to say here besides FUCK!!!

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

  203. Marc says:

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

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

  204. JobaWockeeZ says:

    We need to destroy Papelbon.

  205. Jay J says:

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

  206. BigBlueAL says:

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

  207. Smitt Dog says:

    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.

  208. TJ says:

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

  209. Raf says:

    oh come on , ortiz swung there

  210. chriskeo says:

    more importantly we need to stop the sox rally here

  211. Charlie says:


  212. pat says:

    this one hurts real bad

  213. BigBlueAL says:

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

  214. Lanny says:

    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.

  215. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    dammit throw fucking strikes coke.

  216. Drew says:

    Coke was clearly not prepared for this, mentally.

  217. E-ROC says:

    At least Aceves threw strikes.

  218. handtius says:

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

  219. TJ says:

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

  220. pat says:

    Hahah niiice.

  221. Hova says:

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

  222. Jobamania says:

    Why am i not surprised Coke is sucking?


  223. Ok, stop fucking around. Bring in Mo.

  224. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

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

  225. Jay J says:

    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?

  226. DGeezy says:

    these games are taking years off my life

  227. TJ says:

    Veras sucks

  228. Reggie C. says:

    We need to trade for Huston Street. ASAP.

  229. Dorian says:


  230. Nick L says:

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

  231. Ant says:

    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.

  232. Drew says:

    Don’t worry everyone, Veras is warming.

  233. mick says:

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

  234. nathan says:

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

  235. E-ROC says:

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

  236. Lanny says:

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

  237. Dorian says:

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

  238. Jobamania says:


  239. chriskeo says:

    Thank God

  240. Accent Shallow says:

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

  241. TJ says:

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

  242. stuart says:

    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 says:

      You are correct sir.

    • Joey H. says:

      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.

  243. gxpanos says:

    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.

  244. Raf says:

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

  245. Jay J says:

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

  246. e mills says:

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

  247. pc69 says:

    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.

  248. TJ says:

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

  249. Lanny says:

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

    • 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 says:

      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?


    • giselle says:

      not when he can bring in mariano!

  250. Yankees_Universe says:

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

  251. Ant says:

    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.

  252. pat says:


  253. handtius says:

    we got this. we got it.

  254. BigBlueAL says:

    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 says:

      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

  255. Reggie C. says:

    another round of magic required. please.

  256. Double T says:

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

  257. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Top of the order we need this game yanks.

  258. E-ROC says:

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

  259. Double T says:


  260. Dorian says:

    Know who would have been a great option? Phil Hughes

  261. TJ says:

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

  262. Ed says:

    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.

  263. Jay J says:

    Nolan Ryan a Free Agent?

  264. stuart says:

    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……..


  265. Marc says:

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

  266. dkidd says:

    we’re winning this game

    come on captain!

  267. TJ says:

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

  268. Charlie says:

    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.

  269. DGeezy says:

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

  270. pc69 says:

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

  271. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

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

  272. Dorian says:

    Good AB’s. That’s all i ask for.

  273. Jobamania says:

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

  274. TJ says:

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

  275. e mills says:

    I PH Posada for Damon

  276. Drew says:

    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 says:

      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.

  277. Hova says:

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

  278. Jay J says:

    can u fit luck in your pocket?

  279. Dorian says:

    1 Bad AB

  280. Jobamania says:

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

  281. Joba-to-the-pen says:


    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.

  282. Double T says:

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

  283. Bill R says:

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

  284. BigBlueAL says:

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

  285. Andy Stankiewicz says:

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

  286. DGeezy says:

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

  287. pc69 says:

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

  288. Hova says:

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

  289. pc69 says:

    That’s it folks. 2 games back.

  290. Bill R says:


  291. Buddy says:

    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 says:

      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.

    • Accent Shallow says:

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

  292. Accent Shallow says:

    Comes down to Teixeira. . .

  293. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

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

  294. Drew says:

    Save us Teix.

  295. Dorian says:

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

  296. TJ says:

    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.

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

  298. Raf says:

    just get on base here Teix.

  299. Reggie C. says:

    Work it Teixeira … keep this inning alive.

  300. Dorian says:


  301. Andy Stankiewicz says:

    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 !!!!!!!!

    • Zach says:

      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!

  302. daniel aka bryce harper says:

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

    • Andy Stankiewicz says:

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

    • Accent Shallow says:

      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!”)

  303. pat says:

    Wowsers, that one killed.

  304. Accent Shallow says:

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

  305. Jobamania says:

    un fucking real.

    Get out of here

  306. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:


  307. V says:

    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 says:

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

    • pc69 says:

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

    • Tom Zig says:

      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 says:

        “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?

  308. Raf says:

    just out of control. this is ridiculous.

  309. pc69 says:

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

  310. E-ROC says:

    ‘Ol well.

  311. Fuck.

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

  312. JobaJr says:

    In, Fucking, Credible.

  313. TJ says:

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

  314. BigBlueAL says:

    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 says:

      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

  315. Jake H says:

    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 says:

      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

  316. Bill R says:


  317. Nick L says:

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

  318. Buddy says:

    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.

  319. Ed says:

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

  320. Marc says:

    I am now considering becoming a B-Jobber

  321. Joey H. says:

    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.

  322. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    im going to sleep this one really hurts.

  323. On the bright side…remember 2004.

  324. Smitt Dog says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

        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.

  325. pc69 says:

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

  326. BigBlueAL says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

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

  327. Dorian says:

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

  328. Hova says:

    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 says:

      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,

  329. TJ says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

            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 says:

              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 says:

          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 says:

            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 says:

      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 says:

        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?

  330. Drew says:

    At least I got a cool new Palm Pre.

  331. Dorian says:

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

  332. NYQ says:

    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.

  333. Reggie C. says:


    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 says:

      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.

  334. Pasqua says:

    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.

  335. thurdonpaul says:

    ehh it is june, but it still sucks

  336. mick says:

    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.

  337. bonestock94 says:

    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

  338. Dorian says:

    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.

  339. YankeeScribe says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

      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 says:

      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.

  340. Manimal says:

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

  341. Sic says:

    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.

  342. Tom Zig says:

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

  343. dkidd says:

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

  344. Dorian says:

    Joba Tomorrow. That is all.

  345. Ace says:

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

  346. netter says:

    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.

  347. Reggie C. says:

    Poignant GM commercial.

    Yanks too need to get down to business.

  348. Manimal says:

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

  349. Drew says:

    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.

  350. Nick L says:

    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.

  351. TJ says:

    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.

  352. Sic says:

    That Ass hole Swisher.

  353. Bob Stone says:

    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.

  354. donttradecano says:

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

  355. Jobamania says:

    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



  356. Greg C says:

    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

  357. Reggie C. says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

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

      • Reggie C. says:

        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.

        • 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.

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

  358. Russell NY says:

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

  359. Bob Stone says:

    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!

  360. Jamal G. says:

    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 says:

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

    • Dorian says:

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

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

    • NYQ says:

      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 says:

        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.

  361. rsam says:

    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.

  362. Sic says:

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

  363. Jobamania says:

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

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

  364. rsam says:

    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.

  365. rsam says:

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

    • BIG BOY says:

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

      • Charlie says:

        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.

  366. Joe F. says:

    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

  367. Tom Zig says:

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

  368. Bob Stone says:

    No – Now it’s a record.

  369. Dorian says:

    I need Hal Steinbrenner to issue an ultimatum

    • 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).

  370. Dorian says:

    And guess what? We will all watch tomorrow.

  371. Bob Stone says:

    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.

  372. Hova says:

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

  373. Charlie says:

    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.

  374. 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.

  375. NYQ says:

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

  376. Dorian says:

    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.

  377. NYQ says:

    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!!!!!!!!!

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

    • Charlie says:

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

  378. Stryker says:

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

  379. YankeeScribe says:

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

  380. Lanny says:

    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 says:

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

  383. rsam says:

    lanny good suggestions time for cshman to shake things up.

  384. rsam says:

    we should go after halliday next year

  385. Axl aka Tom Selleck says:

    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.

  386. Dela G says:

    i want to kill myself after that game
