• Anyone

    I’m going to pray tonight that CC is okay

    • ChrisS

      Al Aceves is the shit.

      What a deal off the scrap heap.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    hope CC is ok.

  • Bill

    Thank God for Alfredo Aceves. Hopefully he can get through the 5th. Robertson hasn’t pitched in a while so he could go 6 and 7. Bruney and Rivera to finish it off if we still have a close lead.

    • whozat

      for real.

      I wonder if Hughes can still throw 80 pitches or so? I could see them stacking Hughes and Aceves for CC’s next scheduled start.

      • whozat

        And by “still” I mean “right now”, since he’s been going shorter stints recently, it seems that he might not have that endurance right now, but would need to build back up.

        • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

          Nice point AJ vs Johnson on offense :)

          remember the good ole days?
          When we didn’t know what to do with six starters?

  • cc-cy-young

    i am sure he will be fine

  • Anyone

    Tex needs a HR, so does Alex. It’s been a while.

  • Eric

    Great job by Aceves as usual.

    • Zach

      +1

  • Dela G

    if the yankees win this game aceves deserves the championship belt

    • Anyone

      +91

  • Jamal G.

    As Brett Tomko is warming up, let’s just get this out of the way: You are not smarter than Joe Girardi; Joe Girardi thought of using Phil Hughes just as you did; Joe Girardi does not think Brett Tomko is a better pitcher than Phil Hughes; Joe Girardi and his coaching staff have a reason or two for putting in Brett Tomko over Phil Hughes in the fifth inning.

    Please, think of these before you post the “ZOMG, WTF IS GIRARDI DOING??!?1?!?1 I WANT HUGHES!!!11” crap.

    • whozat

      The annoying thing is that the announcers have been talking about this girl who works for YES instead of telling us WHO THE FUCK IS ON THE MOUND!!!!

    • NYQ

      The reason is Wang is pitching tomorrow, so they want to save him for long relief then.

      • whozat

        Tuesday. They have off tomorrow.

        • NYQ

          my bad, but it is still true

    • Zach

      Hughes pitched last night, and has never pitched on back to back days. it’s pretty simple

  • Anyone

    Ace has been, our scouting doesn’t suck after all people!

    • Anyone

      *has been awesome

  • Dela G

    did anyone check out those three hot girls YES just showed?

    dayum

    • yankeefan91 Arod fan

      yea who were they ?

      • whozat

        A girl who works for YES who’s on vacation and her friends, apparently.

        • Dela G

          well um, i need to head down to FL really quickly

  • Bill

    They want Hughes to pitch multiple innings for Wang’s start. Then they probably hold him back a couple days if CC can’t make his next scheduled start. I would still go to Robertson, who hasn’t pitched in the past 2 days, over Tomko though.

  • John

    Cmon Tomko, just dont cough up a run

    • NYQ

      too late

  • Charlie

    Are you kidding me? Not Brett Tomko. Him serving up 3 runs is going to be very painful for all of us. He sucks. Hughes should be good to go, why tomko?

    • whozat
      • Charlie

        yea, bitch. how do you feel now??? I told you Tomko fucking sucks. no reason he should even be on our roster. that’s three games he’s blown or almost blown.

        • Zach

          yea bitch? what is this a pick up basketball game? grow up

          • Charlie

            yea, bitch

    • Charlie

      and if hughes can’t pitch back to back, just get someone else in our pen.

    • Zach

      I’ll say it again. Hughes pitched last night, he has never pitched on back to back days, that’s not his role and they’re not going to do that.

    • NYQ

      you were right- it was painful

  • BigBlueAL

    Damn the Marlins broadcast just said Tomko in his career as a starter vs the Marlins is 8-2 with an ERA just above 3. Ill say this for him, he is always around 92-93 with his fastball with decent breaking stuff.

    • BigBlueAL

      As soon as I post this, he gives up a fucking HR. Fuck Tomko. lol

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

    First runs the bullpen allowed in eight days.

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

      Last run was Shef’s solo shot off Aceves.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    son of a biatch.

  • ChrisS

    Brett Tomko, however, sucks.

  • cc-cy-young

    ok so can we start giving girardi shit now

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

    Aww, dang it.

  • RAB poster

    God I hate Bombko.

  • whooboy

    Anyone surprised?

  • Eric

    Tomko sucking as usual.

  • John

    damnit Tomko…i thought he would’ve finished the inning.

    • Charlie

      what were you thinking?? ITS BRETT TOMKO! The guy is a useless scrub

  • cc-cy-young

    tomko sucks

  • Dela G

    DAMNIT!

  • Bill

    Should have been Robertson in there. Tomko is trash. Use Coke on back to back days if you have to, just don’t bring in Tomko ever again except with a 5+ run lead!

  • whooboy

    From almost-DFA’d to second out of the pen in a close game. Huh?

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      In the 5th inning. They want Coke and Robertson to be one inning guys. SO if Hughes and Aceves are unavailable, Robertson, Coke, and Bruney, are the 6th, 7th, and 8th, and Mo the 9th, someone needs to pitch the 5th.

      • whooboy

        Hughes threw 11 pitches last night, is he really unavailable for another inning??

        • Zach

          yes

        • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

          He has never pitched back to back. I dont know that they feel comfortable with that.

      • Zach

        bullpen has 8 innings to fill and we expect them to be perfect, thats asking for every guy out of your pen to be on top of his game during same game, thats a lot to expect

  • charlespoet

    Now it will be interesting to see if the bats come to life and can score. A nice crooked number would be preferable but a run will do.

  • NYQ

    I hope they DFA Tomko. We could use Shelley Duncan or Melancan instead of this scrub.

    • whozat

      The fact that you mentioned Shelley robbed you of any credibility. Juan Miranda? Hey, maybe. John Rodriguez? Yeah, could be. Melancon? Totally.

  • Dela G

    i know this is ill timed, but will ramirez ever get called back up or alabadejo?

  • Slu

    There was no other move to make.

    Tomko does stink though, but this is role in the pen.

    • whooboy

      There are other pitchers in the pen..

    • Charlie

      NOT AT ALL!!! His role should be mop up duty in blowouts, not in even remotely close games. There are other arms in the pen Girardi coulda used

      • Bill

        Exactly. He could have went to Robertson there. I know they don’t want to use Hughes back to back but anybody is a better option than Tomko out there!

    • Slu

      I think if you are going to keep him on the team, then he needs to pitch in some high-leverage situations. You can make an argument for Roberston, but if you are on your second relief pitcher to start the 5th inning with a lead. And you need this guy to go multiple innings, then it has to be Tomko. If you don’t use him here, then you need to get him off the team.

  • Eric

    So when are they going to bring Melancon back and DFA Tomko?

  • John

    I finally started liking Tomko but then he prompt;y gives up the lead

  • cc-cy-young

    tomko is washed up they should dfa him and call up melancan and let him develop against mlb talent

    • whozat

      Whatever. Then you’d start screaming every time he gave up a run.

      • Eric

        Not really. If Melancon gets hit, it’s all part of his development. Tomko is 36 years old. He has no business being part of this team if he doesn’t produce.

      • cc-cy-young

        that is the idea behind letting him develop young pitchers are going to give up runs, tomko is 36 years old been around for a while

    • Charlie

      washed up?? He was never good at all. He shoulda been DFAd a while ago

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

    Kid breaks out the 3-2 hook. Ballsy.

  • BigBlueAL

    I hope the offense realizes the game is tied now and that they have to actually score some more runs this game if they want to win.

    • Dela G

      they will wake up in the 7th inning i bet

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    I wonder if well see sergio mitre hes been pitching preety good in scranton.

    • Accent Shallow

      Mitre had Tommy John on July 15th. I’d imagine the Yankees will give him more time in the minors to rehab, no?

      He has looked pretty good for Scranton, and groundballers are always nice to have.

      • Zach

        So he came back in what 10 months? because hes been pitching for a few weeks i think

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

    Yes, Tomko blew the lead, but it’s the sixth inning. Sheesh, relax.

  • Ed

    Tomko sucks

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    For all those saying they could have gone to someone else, kindly map out the rest of the game in a way that doesn’t have the team running out of relievers should the game go to extras.

    • Bill

      Robertson goes 5 and 6, Coke goes 7, Bruney 8, Rivera 9. You still have Tomko and Hughes out there if needed. If you don’t want Robertson going 2, use Tomko in the 6th when he doesn’t have to pitch to their best hitter.

      • Charlie

        +10

      • whooboy

        Agreed. Having enough relievers for extras wasn’t really a concern until Tomko tied it.

      • Zach

        so its not longer about Tomko pitching, its Tomko pitching to Hanley. Why dont u just say intentionally walk him?

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        Coghlan’s hit made Hanley come up in the inning. Otherwise he would not have faced him. And I doubt they want to use Hughes back to back days.

        • Bill

          If Hughes is the last resort in extras then they have to go to him. I mapped out saving both Tomko and Hughes for extras. What’s wrong with using Robertson for 2? I know he’s done it in the past. He hasn’t pitched in this series, day off tomorrow, and he wouldn’t pitch Tuesday with Wang-Hughes going.

    • Slu

      Exactly. If Hughes is not available and you are starting the 5th inning with your second reliever and he needs to go multiple innings, this is the move.

    • Eirias

      Who has their side session tomorrow?

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      You wanna save a better arm for the eleventyth inning???

  • charlespoet

    This is what I was alluding to earlier on the previous thread. They had hit, hit, walk, hit, scoring 3 runs in the second. Since then, barely a flicker.

    It seems that they get a little complacent and tend to lose their plate discipline – swinging at the first strike when up 2-0, trying to pull a pitch, or chasing bad pitches.

    How do you lose your focus that quickly? By now as a team you should have seen all of the pitches the pitcher has, you are just left with figuring out location or his pattern. But even then, you should be able to adjust.

    Offensively, this team and the past 4 years can just be very frustrating.

    • John

      How do you know they lost focus?

      • charlespoet

        What else could it be? did the Marlins starter suddenly become better than he was in the first 3 innings when they were hitting him? Just guessing. But they are down 1 run now in a game that had 9-2 written all over it.

  • Charlie

    wow, playing with fire here leaving bombko in

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    comon tomko are u serioussssss,

    oh my god

    i hate brett tomko

    he can’t effing finish the damn innings

  • Bill

    tomko needs to go, kontos should replace him

    • Zach

      George Kontos is a starter no? B-Konter

      • Accent Shallow

        I’m under the impression that he profiles best as a reliever in the future.

        Guess we’ll see.

        • Zach

          I dont know, but bringing him up now for Tomko he’d be Hughes #2 in the bullpen. Starter with 0 relief appearances, cant be used back to back, have to be careful, etc

  • John

    Ok time for the offense to score some more runs now.

  • Charlie

    THIS is why I fucking hate Joe Girardi. TOMKO FUCKING SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LEARN FROM IT YOU FUCKING DUMBASS!! Motherfucker, that is how you lose games. leave in a 36 year old scrub who can’t pitch under pressure to give up the lead

    • Eric

      It has nothing to do with pressure. He can’t pitch period.

    • J

      can’t blame girardi for the 1st HR. Heck can’t even blame him for 2nd HR. Tomko had 2 outs and had been looking good before giving those bombs up.

      But yeah, he shouldn’t have pitched another inning.

  • Slu

    I have been defending the move to use him, but I can’t defend the choice to keep him on the team.

  • whooboy

    Map that one out

    • BigBlueAL

      You need a map to find where that HR landed.

  • Charlie

    FUCK YOU TOMKO!!

  • AsianShuutoHeat

    At least Volstad is 0-2?
    Knock on wood….

  • Eric

    They’re lucky to be down only one after two innings of Tomko.

  • RAB poster

    W/our offense playing so bad that could very well be the ballgame.

  • whooboy

    Go to your best pitchers first. If Fish come back and we have to use Tomko for extra innings, at least you had your best guys in there. Instead now we have too many relievers and not enough innings.

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

    • Dela G

    • J

      the yankees seem to be giving the games they should take. that’s frustrating.

    Gardner, you’re no good to us with fly balls.

    (Less good with IF popups, but you get the point)

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

    Matsui pinch hitting vs the lefty?

    Does not compute.

    • Accent Shallow

      There’s no RHB on the bench, unless Pena or Berroa count, right?

    • ChrisS

      His .920 OPS against LHPs certainly contributes to the decision, but who else could they use? Berroa? Pena? Damon?

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

        Two outs in the inning and you’d have to pinch run for Matsui if he got on anyway. Let Berroa hit there, and use Matsui later when he can do some damage.

        • ChrisS

          Well, there are a lot of things that I question w/r/t this team on some days.

    why the hell was tomko in? is hughes not available?

      • jsbrendog

        ok, for the first time, go fuck yourself, because i came here to find out so i dont give a shit if a bunch of ppl asked already.

        second of all, hughes is not prepared to be a reliever? ok. then he hsould have come in and pitched from the FIRST INNING when cc went down because THATS WHAT STARTERS DO jackass.

        third, i have been away and didnt watch the game and because they lost didnt even give a shit enough to read about it.

        so, in conclusion, gfys

      • jsbrendog

        thanks i was unaware

    • Bill

      Probably not. But Robertson and Coke were plenty available for the 5th, 6th, and 7th. There is no reason to bring Tomko into a close ballgame unless he’s the last resort.

      • jsbrendog

        but for real, david robertson for 2 innings, Phil backing him up if he messes up and Mo for the save. Robertson’s cut fastball and plus curve would mow down these impatient hitters.

  • charlespoet

    right now this team is just not a good team.

    And that makes 10 straight retired. Where did the bats from the first three innings go? This has another series loss written all over it. not good.

        stop commenting please.

      • charlespoet

        I don’t think I said they were horrible, just that currently they are not a good team as is playing well. Sorry I misspoke. But what in the last 10 batters have you seen that indicates they are having productive AB’s?

        Dela G, how can I be on drugs, are we not watching the same team and game?

        • V

          Um, it’s 10 at bats?

          Who gives a shit?

          There are times where they have 10 at bats where they dominate, and there are times where they have 10 at bats where they’re dominated.

          The guy’s throwing a decent game.

          • charlespoet

            So you could not say that instead of making all the nasty toned comments you’ve posted? But, if I am not mistaken that is 10 lossed outs leaving only 6 remaining. Do the odds suddenly change over the last 6? I have not looked at Florida’s bull pen status but I am guessing they are not as bad as the nationals.

            • V

              So, am I supposed to whine about it and magically make the Yankees put together better ABs?

              • charlespoet

                So who is whining? It is a comment, not a chicken little reaction.

          • Ed

            U are insufferable

        • Dela G

          this is a top 5 in the league team. You weren’t saying anything when they scored 26 runs in 3 games against the mets, right?

          • charlespoet

            15 runs against the Mets, 9 off of Santana will not happen again in that very combination. But that game is the perfect example of what I am saying now. Everything went right, they piled on, stats look great. Against Washington, they struggled.

        Apparently so. We have 1000 future MLB managers running around here. They know exactly how to coax that extra inning out of a pitcher, and how to make sure every pitcher pitches 1-2-3 innings everytime out, and would make sure ARod never goes into a slump, etc.

          So if you’re so much smarter who do you use? CC taken out early, Hughes already pitched, Aceves cannot pitch the whole game and there’s still a portion of the game to be pitched. You sue Tomko for 1-2 innings so you don’t overuse you’re bullpen. What’s your plan? Use everyone but Tomko so they cannot be sued tomorrow and tomorrow WANG pitches so you don’t know what’ll happen. So yeah that isn’t idiotic at all.

        Right, because that only happens at LoHud.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Well it sure happens here but not enough to say that it’s RAB-ish.

      • yankees=warriors

        You have a point there.

  • Charlie

    it really, really sucks that we will probably lose this game. Its a crime that Girardi even let fucking tomko pitch 2 innings. Even worse if he isn’t DFA’d after this. He is completely useless

    • V

      Because they’re down by 1 run with 2 innings to go.

      If they win, will you promise to leave?

  • Bill

    So now we use Coke and Robertson, 2 innings too late.

    To the guy who was worried about who will pitch in extras- Girardi is going to empty the bullpen anyway. Now Hughes really is the last resort after Bruney and Rivera. My plan had 2 pitchers left over AND WE PROBABLY STILL WOULD HAVE HAD THE LEAD!!!!!! I HATE JOE GIRARDI!

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      I wasn’t worried about extras, but you need to leave some more pitchers, especially in the NL where you may need to pinch hit for a pitcher. Aceves was used, Hughes not available, and apparently Coke, after pitching on 3 out of 4 days, was only available for a couple of batters. So basically you have Robertson, Coke and Tomko to get you 5 innings to the 8th and Bruney. Not such a big deal to use Tomko.

  • YankeeScribe

    Boston, Tampa, Toronto, and Baltimore have already won today… :(

    • Charlie

      yup, a loss means 4 back and the fuckin rays are catching up. thanks, girardi & tomko.

  • BEISBOL

    2/3 of the games against the Braves will be against pitchers they’ve never seen before: Hanson & Kawakami.

  • Jose

    Everyone needs to take a collective breath, one game will not decide the season. People are putting Hank Steinbrenner to shame with all the panic and blusterous speech.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      In our division one game just might.

      • Jose

        We are still in line with the projections to win 93 games even with our start. We would have a safe spot in the wild card with those projections. I guarantee you we make the playoffs by more than one game.

    • Eric

      I mostly agree, but four games to Washington/Florida isn’t “one game” anymore.

    • John

      I agree…though these type of games are piling up

      • V

        Oh, fuck no. We’re gonna lose the division Joba to teh eighth!!!!!!!!!!11 Fuck!!!

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

      True, though they do need to play much better than they have the past couple of weeks, offense especially.

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

    Everyone needs to stop cursing at each other. We understand you’re frustrated, but show each other some respect.

    • J

      +1

      but fuck brett tomko

    • charlespoet

      Is it always so brutal and unfriendly with everyone attacking every single comment? Kind of like the LoHud posters griping about every single pitch. Ironic!

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

    Is that an actual pin they’re wearing for Father’s Day, or is it embroidered on the jersey? A pin seems kinda dangerous, no?

    • Jose

      That is what hurt CC’s bicep. It all makes sense now, some sick plot by Bud Selig and Theo Epstein, those sly dogs.

    • Dela G

      i’m pretty sure its embroidered. I saw the astros game today, and there was no metal coming out of the pin.

  • Charlie

    wow, it should be 0-2. Fuck this inconsistent ump

  • Accent Shallow

    A walk to Hanley wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

  • Eric

    It’s insane that a few weeks ago people were so worried about this bullpen. Mo/Bruney/Ace/Robertson is a really filthy pen. It’d really be great if we get an effective Marte.

    • John

      Yea, that would be the best pen in the world (Red sox fans be damned)

    • Ivan

      And have Tomko replace by Melancon.

  • Dela G

    well this sucks

    • V

      fuck you

      • Dela G

        why are you cursing me? i was saying it sucks because he walked hanley

        jeez back back and gimme 50 feet

      • http://www.pinstripesplus.com ansky

        probably the most aggressive optimist ever. So bizarre

  • yankees=warriors

    It doesn’t really matter if Girardi use the whole bullpen today, does it? Tomorrow is an off day.

    • Dela G

      also, everyone knows that when wang pitches, hughes will give the pen a rest for basically another off day, so that’s a good thing

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  • BEISBOL

    game over.

    • Accent Shallow

      Really? Really?

  • yankees=warriors

    Great, now it’s realloy over…

    • V

      FUCK!! We’re all gonna die!!

      • cjc

        what is your deal seriously

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

    Yep, Robertson could have worked two innings to these same batters earlier. Best laid plans…

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Exactly.

  • ChrisS

    Ugh.

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

    Crudmuffin. The throw didn’t help things, either.

  • cjc

    hey look the real bullpen is back

    awesome job by melky there

  • John

    Damn ump, gave Hanley two strikes.

  • Accent Shallow

    Terrible throw by Melky, and a lousy job backing up by Robertson. Argh.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Girardi’s fault Posada missed the ball.

  • BigBlueAL

    Pretty sad.

  • Pastafarian

    Not you too Robertson : [

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    fuck dis is really frustrating cashman fix the damm bullpen noww.

    • V

      fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck

  • Dela G

    man i really feel like sighing

  • IvanS

    This team is irritating.

  • Dela G

    well robertson did a good job getting uggla. Now lets hammer their bullpen
