    79 pitches through 6.

    We need to get into their bullpen.

  • Dela G

    at this point, we need jesus

  • John

    AJ and Berroa took 6 pitches and Jeter only 3…DFA him!

  • Accent Shallow

    Odds the Yankees see the Marlins pen:

    For 1 inning: 2-1
    For more than 1 inning: 15-1
    Not at all: 5-1

  • stuart

    shocking good pitching dominates what a concept…

    we are good for at least 1 more cano 2 pitch AB and 1 swisher strikeout……

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Hopefully, Alex gets a chance to Bitch tit at some point in this game.

    • John

      How nice would it be for him to hit a HR in his 1st AB at his home?

  • pc69

    Hopefully Atlanta wins. Yanks can’t figure this guy out.

    I’m sure that MRI for Dice-K will find something.

    • Zach

      Igawa ’09: 0 loses – DiceK ’09: 5 loses

      Cashman >>>>>>>> Theo

      • John

        and Dice-K’s lossse were at the MLB level so Theo=fail

    • Accent Shallow

      Clearly a DL stint is coming, whether that MRI finds something or not.

    • Jose

      I’m hoping that he comes out and says something to the effect of “I am not injured” and the Red Sox get punished by the commissioner.

      I invented this new injury test for baseball, using a cotton swab. You touch the cotton swab to a player and a pagan witch doctor can instantly diagnose that player with anxiety disorder. Patent pending.

  • Tank the Frank

    I can has baserunners?

    Either I missed something or you’re drinking Wild Turkey.

  • AJ

    Of COURSE Beckett is dominating and the Sox are up 2-0..

    • whozat

      Yeah, Burnett has been terrible today. If only the Yankees could have a dominant pitching performance. Pettitte was awful yesterday too.

    • Zach

      Lowe’s at 100pitches too

  • John

    cant walk .287 OBP emilio AJ!!!!!!!

  • whozat

    Four pitch walk to bonifacio = boo.

    • Accent Shallow

      Yeah, you can’t walk Good Face.

  • John

    i hope AJ doesnt implode

    • Tank the Frank

      It’s entirely possible. This inning has a bad feeling to it. No bull dance… no flow…

  • AJ

    Fantasy Trade:
    a) Matt Holliday, Brandon Phillips and Joba for:

    b) Magglio Ordonez, Dustin Pedroia and Matt Capps, who wins?

    • Zach

      Whoever is getting A wins

      • whozat

        Yah.

        Was this even remotely a serious question? Capps is a reliever, right?

        • Zach

          Closer for Pirates.

          Went on DL after he hurt his elbow while undressing after a game. But 16/18 in saves, blown up ERA because of 2 games that combined for 2 IP, 8H, 7ER, 1BB. Obviously he’s on my team

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

      a), easy.

    GTFO Good Face.

    That’s the universe righting itself — he shouldn’t have been on base to begin with.

  • pc69

    1 freakin hit by a pitcher who never hits. Bronx Bombers are back.

    • Jake

      You mean besides all that time he spent in the NL right?

  • dkidd

    he’s a good baserunner………………………………………………………FOR ME POOP ON!!!!!!!!!!!

  • BigBlueAL

    Posada brought the chooch tonight.

  • whozat

    Jorge is such an awful catcher. I wish Cervelli was in there today.

    • Accent Shallow

      The way Johnson is pitching, I’m not sure it matters.

    • whozat

      And some of those calls were kind of a travesty according to the pitchfx data, btw.

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    Hava Molina!

  • John

    BULLSHIT BALL 3 WAS ALMOST RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE!!!

    • whozat

      There were two strikes called balls in that AB.

      Do you go back to the well right now? Another curve?

      • whozat

        Nah, high heat was a good call, but a little too high.

  • Dela G

    WOOOOOOO

    WHAT A THROW OUT!

  • Tank the Frank

    Remember when we were a good defensive team???

  • Accent Shallow

    Oh, Johnny . . .

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

    Are you fucking kidding me, Johnny?

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Thanks Johnny.

  • Dela G

    damnit johnny damon

  • dkidd

    that hurts

  • Dave

    Ah fuck

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Oh wow, how did he miss that?

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      He had ‘fluttering’ in his eyes.

  • AJ

    We are so signing Matt Holliday next year..

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

      Oh please, he’s a total fraud. Padded his numbers in Coors, didn’t start hitting in the AL until his team was out of it.

    • whozat

      Well, that would be an enormous overreaction. Signing Holliday to a like…6 year deal…because of Damon’s DEFENSE??

      Also…that was an error and a half.

    • Accent Shallow

      They do need a corner OF bat, but I’m not sure another long contract to the likes of Holliday is the best course of action.

  • whozat

    Well, that sucks enormous donkey balls.

    Seriously.

    Wow. Horrendous.

  • BigBlueAL

    Damon is good for 1 one of those every couple of weeks. Unfortunately this one probably sealed the game for the Marlins.

  • John

    I blame the ump on that run!

    • Pasqua

      No, I’d really blame Johnny Damon.

      • John

        him too

    • Tank the Frank

      I blame Posada’s game calling.

  • gxpanos

    Not a whole lot of defense by the Yanks tonight.

  • John

    not an error?

  • Bobby

    AJ just flat out ain’t getting the job done. The job of the starting pitcher is to win ballgames, no excuses. Game’s over now, AJ has lost it.

    • AJ

      what??

    • Pasqua

      Really? You’re laying that on A.J.?

    • gxpanos

      Wow. Are we watching the same game?

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist
    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      What game are you watching?

    • whozat

      I can’t tell…is this such a good fake-troll that it’s throwing me off, or is this just such a dumb comment that I can’t believe it?

  • AJ

    That’s on Luis Castillo’s level..

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

    Just make sure you make up for it at the plate, Johnny. Problem is, I don’t think an All-Star team is hitting Johnson tonight.

    • Dela G

      i bet we get to him this next inning

    • Jose

      Yanks will start a rally in this game. I believe they find a way against Johnson.

    • whozat

      If Johnny doesn’t hit a two-run home run in his next AB, they must trade Hughes and Joba for Matt Holliday immediately.

  • Dela G

    like i said, we need jesus

  • Tank the Frank

    AJ isn’t happy.

  • dkidd

    come on aj. we can still win this!

  • Ivan

    Man 2 runs feel like 10 right now with the Johnson is pitching.

    • Dela G

      now i know how the marlins felt last night against andy pettite

  • AsianShuutoHeat

    Calling Offense, first name Yankees.
    Please come to the front desk, the team needs you.

    Yes, solid defense and good pitching wins you games… but you do need to score at least a few runs to win…

  • John

    Seriously no error???

    • whozat

      Yeah, talk about home cooking.

      “Yeeeahhh…that ball was catchable…and he got the glove on it…buuuuuut I’m pretty sure that’s a hit.”

      • Jose

        That dropped pop up to Luis Castillo in the Yanks-Mets series should’ve been ruled a hit.

  • Dela G

    good job getting out of that inning

  • gxpanos

    I feel like the Yanks can scrape a few across in the next couple innings. Johnson is ridiculous, but he only really throws the two pitches (I think I’ve seen one change the whole game). They HAVE to be able to figure out how to get a few hits, right?

    Please?

    • Pasqua

      Hello-ello-ello-ello?

      Anybody-ody-ody-ody?

      I feel your pain, believe me.

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

    2 runs on Johnson tonight is like 5 on anyone else. Regardless, the Yankees can make up those runs. As always, confidence level = 10.

  • Bob Stone

    They called it a double – not an error – what a joke

  • Accent Shallow

    Wonder if that long-ish inning was enough to throw JJ off his rhythm.

  • John

    AJ hasnt K’ed anyone since 2 outs in the 4th!!!

    • whozat

      Bust. Put him down. Send him to the glue factory.

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

    I know Johnson’s pitching well, but you can’t chase that pitch when you’re up 1-0.

    • whozat

      Nope.

  • Bob Stone

    Damon didn’t exactly redeem himself in that at bat

  • AJ

    When is the time that the yankees give up on Damon in 2010?…Today 8:59 pm..

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

      No, it’s not. The people that run the team don’t make decisions based on one error.

  • yankees=warriors

    I feel bad for AJ. He had to do everything himself today.
    If not for HIS hit, we’d be looking at a no-hitter.

  • gxpanos

    Hey, you guys hear? Josh Johnson had TJ!

    The surgery! I hope Kay reminds me of the surgery next inning, too.

  • John

    bad Johnny

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

    Mike, there’s your baserunner to has!

    The Yankees have brought the tying run to the plate.

    The Yankees got away with that groundball.

  • Bob Stone

    Hah – Posada beats out a double play – that’s rare

  • dkidd

    • Jose

      I will never forget his performance in the 2008 All Star Game.

        Oh, that was BRUTAL. Man, I felt so bad for the guy. It was just an unending sequence of suck.

  • John

    Come ON SWISH!!!!

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

    Dan Uggla is not very graceful, is he?

    • Jose

      Never forget his 3 strikeouts, 3 errors, and ground into a double play in a single game.

  • Dela G

    did posada even touch 1st base?

    • whozat

      SSHH!!!!

    • Bob Stone

      I don’t think so – I was waiting for the first baseman to go tag him after the play. He tried to drap his toe across the bag but in IMO, he missed it.

  • Bob Stone

    JJ is up to 95 pitches – maybe we can get him out of there

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

    Nick…what the fuck?

  • Tank the Frank

    Holy shit Swisher… you have no chance in this AB.

    Jeez, Swish is chasing some less than ideal pitches of late.

    • John

      noticed that too

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

    Ooo, ump was ready to call the second pitch to Swish a strike. He had his hands pumped.

    Dammmit, that was it.

    Really, Kay? Cheering for the Yankees or the Marlins? I thought there’d be some people cheering for the Mariners in there.

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

      I thought they were prepping for the Dolphins.

    • Jake

      Dolphins are always a possibility.

    There you go Swish.

    swish!!!

  • Accent Shallow

    Not bad, not bad.

    I was guessing walk, groundout to 2B, HR. Surprised to see a solid single.

    Yeah Swisher!!

  • John

    damons play looms large…cmon Melky, deliver!!!!!!!!!!

    • whozat

      Oh, it’s Melky, my bad…

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Swish! It’s a good thing he got another hanging slider.

  • Accent Shallow

    At this point, I’m not sure if I want to see them keep Johnson in there, or bring in the ‘pen. I realize they’re going to try to nurse him through the bottom of the Yanks’ order.

    • Bob Stone

      JJ’s at 103 pitches – Does he have a pitch limit?

  • Jake H

    2 out rbi’s are huge.

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

    Dammit, right down the middle. Too late on it, Melk.

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

    Blew Cabrera away on that one.

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

    Bad Melky rears his ugly head again. That one was at his eyes.

    • whozat

      Where’s the 10-pitch AB melky from two innings ago?

      Dammit.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      One of these years he will stop trying to hit HR’s, and will probably hit more as a result.

    Well, Damon had better jack one later.
    He owes AJ that much!

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

      Depends who they bring in to pitch. If they bring in a lefty, PH A-Rod. If it’s a righty, go with Matsui. Worry about pinch running if they get on.

      • dkidd

        is arod available to pinch hit?

        • zs190

          Yeah, he is.

  • yankees=warriors

    I can’t believe this, didn’t AJ show he was tiring the last inning?

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Is it me or did De Aza slow prematurely?

    • whozat

      It looked to me like he was trying to pull the bat back and kinda got surprised it hit his bat anyway.

  • John

    I think AJ could have gone longer. Poor AJ, once again another Criminally Unsupported start!

    • whozat

      Yeah, but he’d clearly started to lose it. If he’d come out mowing guys down, I’d have left him in…but I think this makes sense.

    • Bleakley

      yup and he already made this guy look stupid earlier.

      • whozat

    Ok, Nunez is a three-true-outcomes guy…lets wait him out, take some walks and let Johnny crank a “redeemer”

  • yankees=warriors

    They’re really using Hughes like a reliever now, huh?

      I’m definitely not crazy about it. He’s been effective as hell, but if we’re going to see him as a reliever, I’d rather not see him in 1 inning stinats.

    The friggin fans in Forida cheer more for A-Rod than we do! Granted when it isn’t a game winning HR of course.

  • whozat

    Yeah, that was a real nice move for a righty.

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

    Why not PR Pena? You need him to play third, PRing Gardner just burns a bench player.

    • V

      That’s why.

    • Accent Shallow

      Gardner’s the better base stealer, and the way A-Rod has been going, he’s a huge GIDP threat?

    • whozat

      Maybe ARod will play 3B?

    • gxpanos

      Pena not a sure thing to steal the base.

  • whozat

    Yeah, GREAT job by uggla.

    Damn selfish walk.

    • Accent Shallow

      I know you guys are kidding, but the only remotely hittable pitches he got were the strike, and maybe ball four. That said, neither one was really a hitter’s pitch.

      I don’t know, I feel mixed here. Jete’s has that bum ankle right now, would be prone to a GIDP.

  • zs190

    This is going to sound wrong, but should we bunt Jeter here?

    • Dela G

      why not bunt jeter here?

      he’s been Mr Double play these past couple of weeks

      • whozat

        Well, he didn’t do a very good job of getting that bunt down…

  • J

    jeter should push bunt…

    • whozat

      He shouldn’t have swung, tell you that.

      • whozat

        Jeter is really close to soiling this AB.

        • whozat

          Horrendous.

          Just terrible.

  • V

    Double steal?

    • V

      Well, they tried.

  • John

    cmon captain…PLEASE dont GIDP..get a hit!

  • J

    michael kay talks about that 1st out and 3rd out at third ALL the freaking time. shut up already penguin.

    • Dela G

      haha

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

    Unreal.

  • V

    Like clockwork.

  • J

    lol

  • Diony

    88.8% chance Gardner wont score, unless he steals all the way home.

    • whozat

      Terrible job, Jeter. Just awful.

      And yet, I’m sure that somewhere someone is complaining about ARod walking. Saying that he needed to ground out to the right side, so that Saint Jeter’s grounder would have been a clutch RBI groundout instead of a GIDP.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        A-Rod just isn’t gritty. Look at the Red Sox. They sacrifice their stats all the time! If there’s a guy on second, they make sure to get a ground out so they can go to third! They are so gritty and that team will win championships. The Yankees will never be gritty since they only play for the money.

        • Pasqua

          The Sox are so gritty they spit gravel. The Yanks, however, spit gold coins.

  • Accent Shallow

    Argh!

  • dkidd

    shocker

    God. Dammit.

    *bangs head*

  • Ivan

    Dammit DJ.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Better make up the run you gave Damon.

  • Yankees_Universe

    bullshit…

  • Yankees_Universe

    bullshit…

  • zs190

    Sigh…

  • V

    AJ Burnett had better ABs in this game than Jeter. Wow.

  • Blackdragon905

    saw that coming…ugh

  • JackC

    That was decidedly less than ideal

  • Jefree

    squeeze

  • Dela G

    hahaha who called it…

    i did

  • John

    WOW I bet the blame for that Double Play goes on A-rod

  • JobaWockeeZ

    And yeah I’d take the “extremely idiotic” bunt over the DP anytime.

  • Dave

    But Jeter leads Majors in Interleague Batting average!

  • cjc

    brutal

  • gxpanos

    I hate the bunt. HATE it.

    But Jeter should pretty much just bunt every time he’s up with a man on first and less than 2.

    • Accent Shallow

      No. He GIDPs quite a bit, but he’s a great hitter. I’d agree with you occasionally in situations like that.

      • gxpanos

        It was more angry sarcasm. I wouldnt really advocate that.

  • Bobby

    That is all on A-Rod. If he had gotten a double instead of a walk, that would have scored a run. Bench A-Rod tomorrow as punishment.

    • Dela G

      hahaha i love the sarc

  • dkidd

    redemption time for damon

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Couldn’t see that one coming.

    Now we all know why Uggla was playing so close to 2B.

  • Pasqua

    It’s like that adage about not being able to hide a defensive liability because the ball will inevitably find him.

    Even with Jeter in the leadoff spot, the GIDP’s keep coming.

    Grrrr..

  • John

    That decision to bat him leadoff is looking better and better everyday

    • Dela G

      amen. Somehow he’s become a DP machine

  • Accent Shallow

    What can you do?

    Jeter’s a great hitter, but he’s got extreme groundball tendencies. So it goes. He tried to bunt, couldn’t get it down.

    • whozat

      Send the runners?

      Give him the take sign while you call a double steal?

  • Yankees_Universe

    what is worse Kay, Jeter keep hitting into DP or Gardner with 50% chance of making it to third while stealing?

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

    I’d be happy a walk here.

  • whozat

    Don’t turn the channel until that last page?

    Seriously, Kay?

  • cjc

    fuck balls

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Fucking shit.

  • Accent Shallow

    WTF was that, Johnny?

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Ugh.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Way to go Damon.

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

    Well that inning sucked.

  • John

    bad game for JOhhny

  • J

    how many games have the yankees lost this year because of situations like this? this team can be so clutch one day and so unclutch the other. nature of baseball i suppose.

  • Conor

    Johnny’s been great for us, but he receives the Goat label for the evening.

  • dkidd

    i still think we’re winning

  • Yankees_Universe

    Can M.Kay just stop with this bs about how many are sitting and how many are standing in the stands? we don’t care…

  • Tank the Frank

    Such a tremendous fail by the top of our lineup. That’s how you lose games. Well, that and committing two errors.
