    I like Hughes in these low-leverage bullpen outings. No need to start him……

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      No room to start him, you mean.

      • Dorian

        Look man I was all for Wang being put back in the rotation but it is so plainly obvious that Phil is just better than Wang right now.

        • handtius

          wow, those 2 19 win seasons of over 200+ innings mean nothing. Win the war, not the battle.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          He is.

          But that doesn’t mean that it’s not in the long-term interests of the team to keep running Wang out there until he rights himself. It is.

          Frankly, with the 5th best record in baseball, we can afford to keep giving starts to an inferior Wang.

          Long term >>>> short term

      • BigBlueAL

        Your right, there is nobody in the current rotation who is 0-5 and soon to be 0-6 after this game. Or with an ERA of 11.20.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          Long term needs >>>>>>>> short term needs

          • BigBlueAL

            Assuming long term automatically means playoffs is way off.

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              Technically, the playoffs are way off. Since it’s June and we have a sterling top 5 record, we can afford to take some Wang losses in order to get him straightened out.

              If we were 5 back in September and Hughes was still this much better than Wang, the decision would be different. We’re fine.

              • BigBlueAL

                Im sorry, but no team can ever afford to take losses for the hell of taking losses. Thats a stupid statement to make. These arent the 1998 Yankees.

                You are assuming that having Wang lose all these starts is OK because eventually he will straighten himself out. Thats a huge assumption to make is really all I am saying.

                I understand where you are coming from, but I think its a huge mistake to just assume this team will make the playoffs no problem and that Wang will turn it around for sure and that they can afford to lose games now w/o paying for it later.

                • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                  He’s gotten better every time out.

                  If he wasn’t, I’d be more willing to pull the plug. But he’s not, he’s making progress.

                • V

                  You do realize that 5 IP, 3 ER does not equal automatic loss (that’s if you forget that out #3 was ‘pastadiving ARod’).

                  Do you?

          • Dorian

            Do you think that girardi will care about the long term when he gets fired?

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              I think Girardi’s getting paid to think about the long term.

      Who’s a no-name? Tommy Hanson is the Braves’ #1 pitching prospect and Moylan is a well-regarded reliever.

      • Dela G

        no no i said that wrong. I know who hanson is, but i mean overall. And hanson has not made a name for himself yet in the MLB, so no name was not far fetched. He will be good, but i guess i shouldve said inexperienced. I praised moylan in the earlier thread, i know he’s good.

        • DP

          So who? Josh Johnson?

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Losing to rivals doesn’t count double in the standings.

        • ARX

          I didn’t say it did. Thats why I simply said it would be ‘nice’. All I ask for is, near .500 against BOS/TB/TOR(since it seems we’re destined to face Halladay every f***ing time despite the randomness of schedules) and more or less kill the scrubs of the AL. We’re almost there in that regard, so we’re in overall good shape.

        • Johnny

          It kind of does. It’s a two game swing between a win and a loss.

      • The Fallen Phoenix

        Of the eight games against Boston, the Yankees have played six in Fenway, and five without A-Rod.

        So I’m not really as concerned about them as they look on paper.

    The hitters on this team have enough talent that they’re going to rebound and regress to the mean, barring injury. And the longer these offensive frustrations continue, the bigger that rebound will be.

  • John

    does Alex seem to pressing

  • Greg

    Phil is so awesome. Why are people bashing Girardi for taking out Wang? If we were up by 3 runs in the 6th I could understand the outrage. Down by 3 with a man already on base and 1 out, what could Wang do at the plate besides bunt and waste an out? It was the right move and it just failed because Jeter is unclutch.

  • charlespoet

    was reading Pete Abe summaries and it looks like Cody Ransom is coming back. So there is the savior.

    At what point does the blame for hitting go to the hitting coach? I know he is not the one swinging the bat but the AB’s over the past two weeks, since Boston, have not been very good. A team this good should not collectively “cycle” ineptness. Usually it is one or two players, but this is starting to be contagious.

    • Chris

      Certainly longer than 2 weeks of slow hitting.

      Here are some ranks of the Yanks in MLB:

      Runs: 2nd
      OPS: 1st
      OBP: 5th
      SLG: 1st
      HR: 1st

      OPS w/ RISP: 4th
      OBP w/ RISP: 2nd
      SLG w/ RISP: 2nd

      Which stat suggests that the hitting coach should take some heat?

  • http://don'tworrythenatsarecomingtotown.... Jason Joker

    look at Rob Thompson trying to make believe he knows something!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I’m all for Hughes starting in place of Wang and all, but let’s say this happens: Hughes starts, goes 4 innings and gives up 5 runs. Or he struggles in 2 straight starts.

    How many of you calling for him to start now would question the decision of taking him away from the ‘pen where he was doing great? I know a lot of people would.. People like complaining.

      wells by faaaaaaarr. Atleast A-rod to a certain extent will pay for itself. Also A-rod is once in a lifetime type stuff, so itll be a while till he regresses. I think wells has lost a couple of steps since he signed that contract to start with.

          Depending on how he recovers from the hip injury. If he’s the same player he was previously, then yeah.

      I’d say Berroa. Ransom is DFA’able when Nady returns and I’ve made it known before that I don’t think Pena’s being all that hurt by not playing everyday in AAA. His ceiling isn’t much higher than the player he is now, IMO.

      • Jersey

        I agree.

  • Tank the Frank

    Phil Hughes is so pimp right now I seriously would just hand him a bat and let him win the game for us.

    • D-Roc

      lol

  • LiveFromNewYork

    So if Phil’s in the pen, people are screaming for him to start. Joba starts and people scream for him to be in the pen.

    People do NOT understand that starters tend to be good pitchers and middle relievers not so much. So a starter in the bullpen will be lights out and when they’re in the rotation they might struggle, esp a young pitcher. I don’t understand why Phil’s performance or Joba’s performance in the pen is such a shock.

    • Yankee1010

      I don’t think many people in here support Joba to the pen. At least not the sane ones.

      • LiveFromNewYork

        Well every time he starts the chorus seems to get louder. Not here but in general.

  • Yankee1010

    How is Hughes able to pitch so well out of the bullpen? I thought he was a STARTING PITCHAHHH. Does anyone think it has anything to do with only have to face guys once in shorter stints? That might be it, right?

    God, I hate Fatcessa even more than the Yanks’ offense right now.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      I loved listening to him today. “Boston might go six, seven hitless innings, but then they’ll get five hits in a row and make them all count and put up all the runs they need. Because they got gamers in that lineup.”

      It was the most hilariously sad “analysis” I’ve ever seen.

      Also, sometimes when you flip a coin fifteen times in a row, it’ll only come up on heads one time. And there’s a better chance of flipping a coin and getting heads then getting on base in baseball.

      • Tank the Frank

        Yeah, he drank the Boston cool aid.

      • Wolf Williams

        So that means everything boils down to statistics… there’s no room for any analysis of the intangibles, such as toughness, competitive drive, hustle?

        It’s all numbers to you? Just measure the numbers and therein will lie the secrets to winning?

        If that’s the case, then the nerds can have baseball. There has to be room in this game still for tough guys who say screw the numbers and the percentages. We are winning this game no matter who we have to kill or run over to do it.

      I thought they were gonna shut Webb down for the year?

      In any event, no. He’ll still cost too much, and now he’s got injury red flags. Pass.

    • Jersey

      I’m pretty sure “Brandon Webb on the cheap” does not exist.

    • Tank the Frank

      No way he would still cost an arm and a leg. Starting pitching is not what this team needs right now… Not for that price anyway.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      No, but I go after Stephen Drew.

      • Yankees_Universe

        Yes..He would be a nice fit..

    • Accent Shallow

      How about Chris Young (the outfielder)?

      Although it looks unlikely at this point that he’ll ever hit for average, maybe he could turn into a useful player. He’ll be 26 in September, has power, and is a great defender.

    • GG

      I’ve always felt the catcher is the one position that can reasonably get away with that shit

    • Chris

      How would running have made a difference. The catcher had the ball and was between Poasada and first. If the ball had caromed away anywhere else, then he should have run, but not necessarily that particular situation. Running would be akin to the college 3B that runs all the way to the stands on a pop fly that goes out of the park.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    I hope we don’t get another shutout. Ever since that shutout in Boston the offense went downhill.

    • Dela G

      they scored 9 on johan and 15 total against the mets…

    • Jersey

      I’d be more inclined to believe that the shutout was an effect of an offensive “slump” rather than the cause.

  • Jersey

    *whew* That was a close call.

  • Greg

    Odds on Gardner and PH Damon getting on 1st and 2nd with no outs only to have Jeter hit into a DP in the 9th? Over 75%?

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      I won’t take that bet, because it’s almost a sure thing at this point.

  • John

    Watching an old Millionaire episode and a question came up:

    Which pro sports team has retired the most numbers?
    A.Celtics B.Yankees
    C.Packers D.Lakers

    • Jersey

      Has to be Yankees…?

    • ARX

      I’d stick my neck out and say the Yanks, even tho the Pack/Lakers wouldn’t shock me.

      • Jersey

        Now that I’m thinking about it, the Celtics have had a buttload of quality players too. That’s a tough one.

      • John

        the guy picked the Yanks and was wrong…it was the Celtics

    • BigBlueAL

      I think its the Celtics.

  • charlespoet

    Since Jeter’s DP, there has been zero threat.

    So, this won’t happen, but would you agree or disagree that firing Girardi tomorrow would spark the team?

    What about before the Mets series if the Yankees get swept by Atlanta?

    Sorry there is just very little to discuss with this team right now..

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Disagree.

    • Accent Shallow

      I have no idea if firing Girardi would spark the team.

      I’d be pretty opposed to firing a manager mid-season, unless the team is wildly underachieving or he’s clearly out of his depth.

      • JackC

        Agreed. If this is the way things go through the All Star break, then the two caveats you added would be in play, however. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. I don’t think it will.

    • Jersey

      They’re going through a bad stretch. They’re a second-place team atop the WC standings. Relax, nobody’s getting fired.

    • Greg

      Fire him. He is an atrocious manager. There is no excuse for trying to waste outs with one of your best OPS hitters, especially in the first few innnings. Girardi just doesn’t understand baseball.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        ATROCIOUS!!!!!!!!

  • Accent Shallow

    At least Melky put the ball in play. I’m drawing a blank on who the Braves’ closer is. I hope it’s Jason Neighborgall.

    Shit, it’s Soriano, isn’t it.

    (Seriously, some team should sign Neighborgall, and install him as the closer. Preferably the Nationals)

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      You mean the Jason Neighborgall with the minor league career 27.2 BB/9?

      (Thanks for making me look that up, it was good for a laugh.)

      • Accent Shallow

        Yeah. He (allegedly) had two pitches that rated an 80 on the scouting scale (fastball and curve). Unfortunately, he couldn’t throw either of them for strikes. So it goes.

  • JackC

    This team looks lost, lost, lost. Listless. They are utterly without list.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      That’s why they’re losing 18-0 right now, and are walking off the field. Who needs to play the last two innings?

      • JackC

        I wasn’t suggesting that. There’s a difference between suggesting the season is lost and observing that they, right no, look as flat as flat can be.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      If Halle Berry took 162 pictures, I’m sure a good 60-70 of them would look less than fabulously stunning.

      • Jersey

        Someday I hope I’m in a position to prove that.

      • handtius

        actually, only one would look good. that’s the truth.

      • charlespoet

        True, but if it was Megan Fox or Eva Mendes, only 10-15 would be less than fabulous and i would blame the camera.

        • Chris

          I blame the camera for the Yankees not scoring.

  • Jobamania

    welp

    good game.

  • Yankees_Universe

    how did the Redsox series make this team look so shitty? They don’t look anything like the team which had best record in AL two weeks ago.

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

    Dammit.

  • Dela G

    well that HR may seal the game

    • http://donnie23 charlie

      Our offense will seal the game.

  • AR15

    Can’t wait to hear the optimistic fucking bullshit our RAB bretheren will feed us tonight.

    “Well, another tough loss for those gritty Yankees. No need to panic though. 92 games to go. This team will pull it together, blah blah blah. ARod will be the best player in baseball again, and Joba will be Roy Halladay by the time playoffs come around”

    Ever since they became affiliated with the Yankees, nothing but asinine optimism. But hey, when you’re in the pocket of the team playing like shit, you have to be right?

    • Accent Shallow

      I don’t know what’s worse, “the sky is falling” type posts, or this condescension.

          That’s only going to further tarnish their already damaged credibility.

    • Jersey

      What is the matter with you?? They are in 2nd place, they are in the wildcard lead, they still have a bunch of talent. It’s a bad stretch. This is not rocket science.

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

      You couldn’t be any more ignorant. Maybe if you got your head out of your ass and actually read a post once in a while you’d see that we’re not happy about where the team is at all right now.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Don’t make Mike angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      What does this even mean?

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Yeah we should be cussing out the team. Please really just leave if it’s so painful to watch. Watch another team if you want but this BS is annoying.

    • ARX

      except they are well built, and there are 92 games left and there ISN’T any reason to panic? The ledge is over there….feel free to join the others, you’ll have lots of company

  • http://www.conservationvaluenotes.com Jon G

    This is painful to watch. I may have to stop watching games until they turn it around. Too frustrating — ugh.

    Sit down you worthless old sack of garbage.

    Really? That jack was “significant” Mr. Kay? The Yankees have been pretty listless, I doubt 4 runs is much different than 3.

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      The way things have been going, I’d bet money the final score was 4-3.

  • e mills

    9th inning rally starts………..now

  • Dela G

    i really think me watching the games is bad luck sometimes. I have a pregame ritual of having an astros game on while the yankees are playing, but since the astros started winning, the yankees started losing

  • Wolf Williams

    Stan van Gundy had a .605 winning percentage with the Miami Heat, including a division title and a loss in Game 7 of the Conf. Finals, and the Heat dumped him.

    It’s not all about a team’s record. It’s about whether or not a guy is the right guy for the job. The Yankees being in the WC hunt has no bearing on Girardi staying or going. If the brass think the ship is about to start sinking, an above-.500 record won’t mean squat.

    • Zach

      Its about your team president realizing you have a great time and chance at a title so you push your coach and have him quit for ‘personal reasons’ and take the glory

      so unless cashman is going to manage this team your analogy makes no sense

      • Wolf Williams

        You can speculate all you want about why Riley took over, but the fact is the Heat won the title post-van Gundy, and you see how much this Orlando team likes playing for him…. not.

        And you cannot assume the Heat would have won the title if the change had not been made.

        All I’m saying is that winning pct. isn’t always the deciding factor. The stat freaks/nerds have to realize that there are intangibles in play.

        • The Fallen Phoenix

          …okay, you win. If a team doesn’t like a coach, they’re not going to play well and win under him. So we can’t look at the winning percentage even…if…it’s…high?

          …I don’t…no. Just, no.

          • The Fallen Phoenix

            On the other hand, I would accept correlation causation, and is therefore one reason why you might not want to look at winning percentage there. But I don’t think that’s what you meant when you wrote intangibles.

            • The Fallen Phoenix

              That’s supposed to read correlation =/= causation; I forgot that the usual “” does not work due to HTML tagging.

          • Jersey

            Winning percentage is a “tangible,” so it doesn’t count, see?

        • Zach

          Right because Pat Riley is so warm and cuddly on the bench? And all players wear knee pads during practice because he beats them into the ground. but no, they played for him but wouldnt have played for van gundy.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          And you cannot assume the Heat would have won the title if the change had not been made.

          Nor can you assume that the Heat did win the title because the change was made.

          We have no idea how much or how little the change affected it.

          • Ivan

            Well it did help that Wade played out of his mind and had the refs as his side kicks.

  • Jobamania

    I’m surprised people are shocked by posada.

    He’s a team chemistry killer, he’s so old school and uptight its fucking sad.

    I really wonder what our record this year was with him on the DL and what its been since he came back.

    • Dan2

      Record with Posada: 23-24
      Record without Posada (between May 4-29): 15-8

      Overall record: 38-32

    • Accent Shallow

      You’re right in that Posada’s uptight as hell and a redass. He’s also a great hitter who happens to play catcher. To try and pretend the team is playing worse because they don’t like Jorge is ludicrous. Ludicrous.

    • Accent Shallow

      Yeah, banjo hitting Cervelli and Kevin Cash are the reason for the Yankees’ winning ways.

      Hmm.

      • Lanny

        I guess he killed the chemistry during all those years of making the playoffs. That jerk.

  • dkidd

    when gardner comes up now, i expect him to get on base

  • http://www.pinstripesplus.com ansky

    I realize the current stretch of games/series has been very frustrating but there’s no reason to give up on the team. This is one alarmingly scary lineup and rotation. When everything eventually clicks(and I’m confident it will) this is a team to be reckoned with

    • Jersey

      Damn right!

    • Arman Tamzarian

      They had to be this frustrating to watch at points last year, I just don’t remember it. At least they’ll be throwing CC and AJ instead of Rasner and Ponson, when the recovery begins

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    It’s felt like Seattle since June started here in New York; maybe it’s applying to Yankees baseball, too.

    Just as long as Cashman doesn’t turn into Bill Bavasi and do something stupid like trade Jackson, Hughes, Montero, and Melancon for Roy Oswalt or something.

    GIDP all over the place, pathetic….

    • Lanny

      Why would Cano get a clutch hit?

      What good reliever would ever in their right mind throw him a strike?

  • JackC

    This team is not as bad as they look right now. However, I think it’s also safe to say they probably aren’t as good as they looked for a few weeks there. I’m not sure we have a real sense of who this team is yet. Which is not unheard of in June, but it’s a little disquieting.

        every players time comes to an end. Unfortunately the time is now for posada. his attitude is gross with girardi and all he does is make faces. You need to listen to some of his post game interviews, makes me wanna vomit

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

          Even with a two week slump, he’s at an .892 OPS. He toooooooooootally sucks.

          • Jobamania

            you know the hitting part is not always beneficial to the team. We had a errorless streak and a 9 game win streak all while posada was on the DL.

            says a lot.

            I’m tired of giving posada the benefit of the doubt

            • handtius

              Oh yes, one 9 game winning streak and no errors. great reason to get rid of Posada. Just like those 06 redsox who set the streak before us. They sure went on to…oh no, they didn’t.

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

              No, it doesn’t say a lot. If Posada was healthy, the team probably would’ve played better and scored even more runs.

        • Accent Shallow

          He’s a great hitter. He plays catcher. Maybe he’ll have to DH more to keep him healthy, but as long as he can hit, he’ll have a place on the team.

        • handtius

          Yes, Posada’s time has come. With the turning of the clock, Posada has magically forgot how to handle a pitch staff and throw out runners. He no longer has the capacity to uses his frontal lobe and his faces he makes is cause the pitchers to throw pitches out of the strike zone…valid point. I stand corrected.

      • Dorian

        How many years ago was it that we won with Posada?

        • handtius

          Then DFA the whole time. How long has it been since anyone on this team has won it all? How often to any teams win it all? Not very sound logic on your part.

      • Chris

        I think he’s suggesting putting him back on the DL. It worked so well last year.

        • Jobamania

          yeah there weren’t any other injuries or anything. and we didn’t have giambi at first or anything.
          and we didnt play damon in center or anything

    This team right now is more boring than a little league team, I can’t even bring myself to watch the screen. I just leave the TV open in the background and listen to it.

    Smart move by me I’d say, I actually did not waste any time on the ball game and got loads of things done.

  • Tom Zig

    I blame Brett Gardner for getting on base and not allowing Wang to pitch more innings.

  • Capital T

    Why did they pull Wang after 65 pitches. If you are not going to let him throw when he is doing pretty well, then get rid of him. If you want to see if he still has it, let him pitch

    • bxpd

      Had the game been in an A.L. park I’m guessing he would have come out for at least another inning. The fact that it was in Atlanta and the Yanks were losing dictated that he’d be taken out. Had Gardner not gotten a hit there, CMW would have batted.

  • Riddering

    I’m wishing now that we had saved some of those runs from the last Mets game.

    Little did we know then that the Yanks are on rations.

    • Reggie C.

      I’m worried they’re gonna send out the garbage lady at the stadium…. with stuff they’ve never seen before.

    • Jobamania

      he’s probably gonna throw a complete game.

      i should pick him up off the waiver wire

    • charlespoet

      If the Yankees faced Wang right now he would dominate.

  • Lanny

    And Girardi’s seat just keeps getting hotter. The way they’re playing he won’t last the week. Can’t fire 25 players.

    Great managerial decisions using/wasting Hughes in these spots. If you’re going to have him in the bullpen he should be in the pen. Not caddying for a pitcher who should be in AAA.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      And if the Yankees had scored four runs in those five innings that Wang was pitching – and with the number of runners the Yankees left on base, that’s not at all inconceivable – then Hughes ends up pitching some of the highest-leveraged innings all game.

      I don’t think Girardi really did anything wrong today. You’re looking to point the finger at someone who doesn’t exist.

      The players didn’t execute, they couldn’t get the hits. They were, quite frankly, outplayed.

      This does not mean that they did not hustle, that they did not try, that they weren’t “gritty” enough, or anything like that. They lost. The coin landed on heads, not tails. It happens.

        How did the Atlanta Braves do in the playoffs from 1991
        through 2005?

        Or how about 1995 through 2001?

        I’ll give you a hint, it’s not going to stop Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, and (most likely) Chipper Jones from going to the Hall of Fame. And those weren’t the only good players on that team.

        And that they didn’t win the playoffs every year didn’t make them any less good.

        • charlespoet

          Same as the yankees, which proves anyone who looks at this team on paper and says “they are a good team” need only reference the downside to paper talent.

    • Pasqua

      Is this in reference to being 0’fer against the Sox this year?

      • The Fallen Phoenix

        It’s in reference to a lot of things, actually. That’s one of them.

  • Dela G

    man the sox have scored more against the nats today than the yankees did in that entire series

  • Jobamania

    The red sox piling on runs against the nats fail pen? what is that? who ever heard of such a thing!

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      How is it the Boston Red Sox are only 42-27? The way everyone talks them up, you’d think they were 69-0, and I’m dead serious.

      • Lanny

        Who expected the Sox NOT to sweep them?

  • Jobamania

    at least we didn’t get complete game 2-hit by joel piniero

    • Lanny

      We’re also not fielding a team that couldnt beat the LI Ducks.

  • stuart

    they pinch hit for wang because they were down by 3 runs with a man on base in the top of the 6th..

    it was absolutely the right move so why the f-ck are you questioning it???

    another good game by arod, cano, and swish. swish nice move getting jeter to 3rd after he hit a double with no outs.. arod nice for jsut your overall great play, 209 BA.. how many more years of this clown do we get to see? If he is hurt, put him on the DL or give him the addtl. surgery… having the apologist make excuses all yr. for his play is unbearable.

    posada with a great game at the plate and another error, at least he did not have a pass ball also.

    tex has disappeared and no one has picked it up….

    no I am wrong most of the pitchers actually have picked things up…

    this team is a paper tiger and has been for years and I am tired of it. have less talent and lose then have a team like this loaded with talent and lose….

    • charlespoet

      Like that “Paper Tiger”. That they are. See results of the Braves referenced above, nearly the same.

      But I agree with you. On paper the Yankees have been offensive monsters, but where the rubber meets the road, there baby seals hoping to survive. Lots of money in propping up paper tigers.

    • Wolf Williams

      Shhhhh…. Just make sure you don’t mention anything about heart, character, or guts, because there is no stat for those things, therefore they do not really exist. So sayeth the wise ones here, anyway…..

      • The Fallen Phoenix

        So the 2001 Arizona Diamondbacks beat the 2001 New York Yankees because they had more heart, character, and guts.

        Ditto the 2004 Red Sox beating the 2004 Yankees.

        And the 1998 Yankees beating the 1998 Padres. Actually, the Yankees had more heart, character, and guts in 125 games that season and playoffs than the other team. But less in the ones they lost.

        …I think intangibles do exist. Really, I do. I think that a player’s hustle can make a difference. But when it does, it shows up the in box score. Why? Because at the end of the day, that’s how you measure wins and losses – the number of runs you score, the number of runs that they don’t.

        • The Fallen Phoenix

          Actually, I recant that last paragraph, to a degree. Sometimes a player hustles, and his team still loses. Sometimes a player hustles, and the throw still beats him at 1st.

          …my point, though, is that these intangibles – when they make the difference between winning and losing – aren’t invisible. You can, in fact, quantify them, just as you can quantify anything.

    • Jersey

      Not tired enough to stop watching and go away. I look forward to that day.

  • Dorian

    I think that there is something that we need to remember with Chien Ming. He is doing an average job against the National League. Not a good sign

  • Ivan

    This is called the baseball season guys. Your gonna have ur share of highes and lows. At the end of the day the yanks will MUCH better and eventually this part of the season will just be forgotten.

    One more thing, I still Think Hughes should start Considering that he’s really caddying a guy who’s he pitching better than and if Wang can get his job back with 8 good innings out of the pen, then y not Hughes. Yes it’s progress, but right now Hughes is the yanks top 5 best starting pitchers really should be given the opportunity.

  • JohnnyBoy

    The next person that claims “its just one game” or “a few bad outings doesn’t make the season” should be banned along with the people who are upset that “this little place was so nice before all you miserable angry whiners came in here”. This is a place for Yankee fans to vent about how ridiculous this team is right now and what they feel should be done about it.

    Aka fire the POS manager and bring in someone who relates well to veterans (because um, well, this is a veteran team) and please stop batting a .200 hitter with no defensive ability in the cleanup spot

    • Tom Zig

      Firing the manager won’t solve anything.

      That .200 hitter is also the best hitter in baseball. Although I agree he shouldn’t be in the cleanup if he is struggling so bad.

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

        That .200 hitter is also the best hitter in baseball, NPD.

        Fixed.

        ;)

        • Tom Zig

          NPD?

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

            Non-Pujols Division

            • Tom Zig

              Fair enough.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Wait, when did the Yankees sign David Ortiz?

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

      Tell me what firing Girardi accomplishes and who replaces him?

      • Tom Zig

        One of:

        Bobby Valentine
        Steve Phillips
        Joe Morgan
        Pete Rose

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

          You forgot Tony Larussa. We should all look forward to his patented four pitcher innings.

    • Chris

      it’s just one game. A few bad outings does not make the season.

      Seriously. The Yankees are leading the wild card. Right now. Even though they have had a horrible couple of weeks.

      • Lanny

        You keep saying this leading the WC thing. Thats fine and dandy but it doesn’t change how poorly they have been playing now for a few weeks. That line will fade away if this keeps up.

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

          But look at it this way, it’s going to be very hard for the Yankees to continue playing this poorly. I’d put my money on them vastly improving and either a) increase that WC lead or b) overtake the Sox for the division.

  • kev

    And to think Ortiz originally platooned with Jeremy Giambi.

  • donttradecano

    Tommie- its good to see the grizzles wont be taking rubio which means jennings being their at 8 looks even better.

  • Zach

    BBTN just said Nick Green is making himself money right now and will get a contract this offseason, wow just wow

  • Andrew

    Hey, Mike Axisa, are we still as good as Boston? Tell me again how .263 with RISP is EXACTLY the same as .283?

    Delusional.

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

      It’s a difference of 10 hits over 500 ABs. That’s not a big difference. The Yankees, not including tonight, have 628 ABs w/RISP. The difference between .283 and .263 in that many ABs is the also small difference of 9 hits.

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

        In fairness, that’s 9-18 runs right there, which would be huge for the Yanks right now.

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

          That’s true, that’s true.

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

      Don’t put words in my mouth, I never said .263 was EXACTLY the same as .283, as you put it. I just pointed out that difference between the two was small.

    • Ivan

      Let me ask u this, on talent, are the sox better than the Yanks, or that much better than them.

      Lets say in July, the roles were reverse, would u still think the Sox were a better team?

      It’s easy to think the sox r better now.

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

      What is with all this Mike-attacking lately?

      So he fucking disagreed with you about something? WHO THE FUCK CARES but you. NOBODY. Get over it.

  • dc1874

    It rains constantly..the yanks loose constantly..our pets heads are falling off……Im movin to Aspen…

    • Zach

      I don’t know, Lloyd, the French are assholes.

    • Alex

      AMAZING reference to dumb and dumber. Much respect.

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

      I got robbed … by a little old lady in a motorized cart. I didn’t even see it comin’.

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

      dc1874, you are my new favorite commenter. My night is now back to normal. Thank you.

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

    We are going to lose every game for the rest of the year.

    38-124. You heard it here first.

  • Greg

    Pretty much the same record as last year and we added CC, Tex, and Burnett to take the place of Rasner, Giambi, and Ponson. The ship will turn around at some point because this team is better than this.

    It’s just getting really frustrating to score so leave so many men on base and get shut down by mediocre pitching. Hanson walked 5 men in 5.1 innings- Normally the Yankees would have shelled a pitcher who did that.

  • AR15

    I hope the Yankee fans absolutely bury ARod when he comes back to NY. Put him 6 feet under so he never gets up again. He is the most mentally weak and pathetic “superstar” athlete in any sport. Can’t believe guy is supposed to be on the same level as Tiger, Kobe, Pujols and Brady. He’s a god damn joke who hasn’t won a god damn thing.

    I urge all Yankee fans to let this bastard have it when they come home. Keep banging Kate Hudson and getting your eyebrows done douchebag.

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

      You’re a great fan.

    • V

      Can you go away?

    • YankeeScribe

      Keep banging Kate Hudson and getting your eyebrows done douchebag.

      More proof that the Yankee fans who boo A-Rod are just envious of him…

  • YankeeScribe

    The days when guys were getting pies in the face almost every other game seem so distant now… :(
