Game 72 Spillover Thread

They needed a game like this in the worst way.

    We go this!

      • Jose

        Phew, my nerves are shot. Especially with this being the last week of the season the Yankees under .500

    • Jose

      Wait, we go like what??? The uncertainty is killing me. I need to pace around for a few minutes, please give me some time.

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

        You need Flomax.

        • Accent Shallow

          He needs a decrease in semen?

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

            Probably.

  • Drew

    I knew my boy Ransom would do his thang.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Did the Yankees need this more than all of us fans?

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

      Probably not.

      The Yankee fanbase is probably way more uptight and neurotic than the actual Yankee team is.

      • Accent Shallow

        I would certainly hope so. Can you imagine if the clubhouse had a tenor like this when they lose?

        Or if the dugout had the tenor of a game thread when they’re down 2-0 in the 4th?

        • John

          Imagine Girardi and other players calling Cash every minute telling him to trade Player X because he GIDP’ed and calling for DFA’s, trades, for our pen or offense.

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

            Swisher: Don’t worry guys, we’re only down two, we can win this thing tonight.
            Posada: Shut the $%&# up, you damn 4th outfielder!!!

      • Mattingly’s Love Child

        I know, I’m visiting my parents…last night my father was practically psychotic while they were getting perfect gamed.

  • Drew

    Is this lead Veras proof? OH WAIT!! Fuck yeah!

    • Accent Shallow

      +1

    • Jose

      Tomko proof?

  • Accent Shallow

    Andy needs to gut out a few more innings.

  • Stephen

    I thought the Yankees couldn’t score with 2 outs

  • John

    Good thing we got our bats going heading into Citi…not many HRs

  • Zach

    Garret Anderson seems like such an asshole for some reason

    • Accent Shallow

      Because he’s always killed the Yankees?

      • Zach

        thats probably why

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

        That’ll do it.

  • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

    after being shut out for 14 straight innings. The Yankees have now scored in 8 straight frames. Gotta love it.

  • Mattingly’s Love Child

    Frenchy just picked that off his shoe tops…ugh.

  • Stephen

    that pitch was at his ankles

  • Accent Shallow

    Yankees pitching is making Jeff Francoeur look like a competent MLB hitter.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Maybe they want the Sawx to trade for him so they’re trying to drive up his trade value?

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

    1. Fuck, he drilled that; Swisher had no shot.
    2. NBA guys, where’d Thabeet go?

    • pat

      2nd, memphis

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

        Haha. I can’t wait for him to be a colossal disappointment. I hope he proves me wrong ’cause he’s a Husky and he’s a good guy and he needs the money for his family situation and all but he’s not a #2 overall player.

        • Ivan

          It’s a relatively weak draft.

          When a team picks a player at #2 because of a necessity rather cuz you were arguebaly the best player in the draft, not good.

      • Mattingly’s Love Child

        Great….another UConn player that can get swallowed up by the suckitude of Memphis. Well maybe they’ll move that team to Vegas or something and their vibe will change…

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

          Meh, Memphis won’t have anything to do with him sucking, he woulda done that no matter where he went.

          • Mattingly’s Love Child

            That is very true. He’s Justin Brown 2.0. For us UConn fans, that means for every good thing he does, he fucks up 3 times in exchange.

          • Mattingly’s Love Child

            Worst thing for Thabeet was to be a top 10 pick. He needed to go to a good team and spend time learning how to play with limited minutes. He’s a role player. Backup center material…

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

              Yep; he’s gonna get beat around by the big guys if he doesn’t add some muscle. After watching every one of his games for three years, I can tell you, the dude ain’t NBA ready.

              • Mattingly’s Love Child

                Sure as hell ain’t Okafor, and Okafor has turned into a solid role player, but no star.

          Knicks fans FTW.. they were chanting OVER RATED OVER RATED

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

            He is.

            Also, though, the tall, overrated white guy goes to Indiana. It was either that or Utah. It’s fate.

      • SS

        Hard to believe the Wolves keep both Rubio and Flynn – one of them is getting traded. Dare we hope for David Lee for Rubio? A fool’s hope, to be sure, but….

        Also, what does IETC mean?

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

          They’re intent on playing them together.

          Lee for Rubio wouldn’t be bad, since we’re not gonna keep Lee, but I’d love to get something better than that for him.

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

    I’m all sorts of over Andy Pettitte.

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

      Remember, he’s only here to soak up innings and be a 5th starter.

      The good news is, thanks to Hughes wasting a few weeks in the bullpen, he’s in the mix to be a starter in the playoffs, so we might be able to make a 4 man rotation without Andy if he starts sucking. So, there’s that.

      • Ivan

        Knowing the yanks, they probably go with the “experience veteren” and Pettitte being a “long time yankee” and pick Pettitte over Hughes.

        Nevertheless, If I was the opposing team, Id much rather face Pettitte than Hughes.

        • Accent Shallow

          Shades of the 2007 ALDS. Hopefully the Yankees don’t make the same mistake again. (And hopefully Hughes doesn’t let them make the choice)

      • Accent Shallow

        I have trouble conceiving of a universe in which this occurs, but here’s hoping. I’d imagine the starter in the ‘pen would be Joba/Hughes/Wang before Andy.

        But let’s not count our chickens yet — still need to make the playoffs.

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

          Oh, Joba’s going to be in the pen or not at all.

          The race for the two non-CC/AJ spots in the 4 man playoff rotation was between Wang, Andy, and Hughes, IMO. Joba’s cap is too low for him to start in October.

    • Mike F.

      All of you bashing Andy are WRONG! Andy has 7 wins this season, most on the team! This win will be his 8th. Where was AJ when he lost 2-1 to the Marlins? Where was Joba when we lost 3-2 to the Nationals? What about Sabathia when we lost 3-2 to the Bo Sox? Andy wins ballgames, period. I don’t care if a starter gives up 1 run or 5 runs as long as he WINS!!!!! Andy is a starting pitcha who knows how to win.

      • Jose

        If only we had Alex Cora. We could go to a one-man rotation and go 162-0.

    • Zach

      smoltz must still be in because their bullpen is unhittableee

      • Damien

        I think he said “A gritty and gutty team like the Red Sox would never lose to the lowly Nationals.”

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      who was the guy in here for days saying “do you really think the Red Sox are going to lose any to the Nationals Natinals?” Well, not looking so good bud!

      Fixed :)

  • AJ

    Where’s Al Aceves??!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    i cant believe they traded carter to orlando

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

      Nevermind that: Bucher’s reporting Amare to the Warriors for Andris Beidrins, Marco Belinelli, and Brandon Wright.

      • yankeefan91 Arod fan

        wow that would be a steal.

        • Ivan

          Amare isn’t Tim Duncan.

        • Zach

          Beidrins is signed for what 4-5 years, while Amare wants max contract, but its still a steal

      • Ivan

        1. Who wins that trade?

        Surprise they couldn’t get Ranpolph from GS.

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

          Phoenix wins that trade.

          Brandan Wright is legit.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      He’s coming back home to……wait for it…….Daytona Beach.

  • Zach

    love the defense guys

  • AJ

    AHH!HH!!!!!!!!!!

  • BigBlueAL

    This is incredible.

  • Tony

    Andy and Wang suck.

    PUT JOBBAH IN THE BULLPEN

    Another one dropped? Ugh.

  • Dan L

    So, i was laid off today, i need a yankee Win pretty badly right now.

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

      Sorry to hear that, Dan. Good luck with a job search.

    • SS

      Bummer – I think it’s going around today. It’s an all around sucky day, Yanks excepted.

      I feel your pain man.

    • John

      Cmon Yanks…win one for the Danny boy!

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

        That.

    • AJ

      Sry to hear that. We’ll get this one, don’t worry.

    • Dan L

      Thanks fellas, nothing like a yankee win to cure the blues. i’ve got tickets to the game next thursday too, that oughta help!

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

    Guys, it’s okay. Andy’s just pitching to the score. It’s what all the greats do.

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

      Andy Pettitte = Jack Morris

  • Damien

    Where is that guy who didn’t want the Yankees to score any more runs this game because they would use up all of their hits? Comebacks never happen, especially with Andy Pettitte on the mound.

  • AJ

    Andy is sweating bullets. This is not good.

  • Wolf Williams

    What’s Pettitte’s WHIP up to, 2.99999999?

  • V

    Daniel Bard = shutdown! He throws 100! He’s the best reliever evah!

  • Zach

    the heat bothers andy, new stadium bothers andy, what doesnt bother andy?

    • SS

      Well, to be fair, it was like 100 degrees here in Atlanta today, and it was humid to boot.

      • Zach

        How hot was it last night for Joba? and not offense to Joba but hes not exactly in amazing shape
        He complained in florida too, and thew 7IP 1ER 0BB 7K

        • SS

          Not as bad – though it was pretty hot then too. They don’t call it Hotlanta for nothing.

  • V

    ANDY PETTITTE IS A STARTING PITCHER!

    • Damien

      HE HAS THE MOST WINS ON THE TEAM!!!!

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

    Get. Him. Out. Of. There. Joe.

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

      But not if he throws his curve like that first pitch again.

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

        That works, too.

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      A little too late…

    • e mills

      Joe’s has to give him as many chances as possible to the the W duh!

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Life mag did a pictorial on the winningest post season pitchers and andy is there

  • Dorian

    Where would this game be if Phil Hughes started it?

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

      In May.

  • AJ

    Daniel Bard just got fustigated.

  • AJ

    McCann wanted a GS there. ..

  • V

    I swear to god, I’d love to be able to ask Francessa face to face, who he feels more confident in right now, as a starter – Joba or Pettitte.

    • Zach

      Joba is a RELIEVER!

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

    How do you let Pettitte pitch to McCann? Who cares about the matchup in a spot like this?

  • AJ

    Wow.

  • Zach

    wow that was a Cano-like bases loaded AB

    • AJ

      Cano would have gotten into a double play and took 2 outs with him.

  • AJ

    I hate Kevin Youkilis.

  • Wolf Williams

    Let Mo get a 16-out save and bat three times. I wanna see Mo at the plate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • J.D.

    Its crazy how much aceves looks like jim leyritz

  • Dan L

    95 through 3.2 innings? thats impressive.

  • V

    I have absolutely no idea why Andy is still in this game.

  • AJ

    WHAT THE Firetruck!

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

    Wonderful.

  • charlespoet

    Boy, joy can go down hill quickly.

  • BigBlueAL

    At least Hughes was wasted on Tuesday for 2 meaningless innings.

  • yanke1313

    Hughesian effort circa 2008.

  • Wolf Williams

    Are we watching the worst 7-3 pitcher in the majors, or just the luckiest?

    • Damien

      He was terrible this inning, but the defense let him down too. He had a good outing last time out, but you can’t judge a pitcher based on wins. Joba got just his 4th last night and he’s way better than Andy.

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

      His FIP coming into today was 4.60 w/an ERA of 4.46. But, FIP doesn’t take non-HR hits into consideration so that’s not too useful. tRA would be more helpful, and Andy had a tRA of 5.45 so, yeah, lucky.

  • Accent Shallow

    Eeesh. Think Andy could use a DL stint? Or at least a start skipped?

    • Jose

      No to the DL. Although he could easily be put on it. If you have a stomach ache that could warrant a 60 day stint.

  • Drew

    Jober to tha pen! Fuck…

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Those Geico commercials make me sad now that Michael has died.

    • AJ

      Yeah…

      • Andy In Sunny Daytona

        He’s out of my life. He’s out of my life, and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I don’t know whether to live or die. And it cuts like a knife…..

  • Dorian

    Once again I will say, Phil Hughes is the 2nd or 3rd best pitcher on this team.

    • Zach

      how?

      • Dorian

        1) C.C
        2) Phil/A.J
        3) A.J/Phil
        4) Joba
        5) Andy

        • Jose

          Phil has a 5.47 ERA with a 1.500 WHIP in games started. Let’s take it easy before naming him the saving grace of the starting rotation.

          • Dorian

            Sub 3.75 without the abomination in Baltimore. It is very obvious to me.

            • Zach

              and take away his best start and it goes back over 5

            • Jose

              As is Burnett’s if you take out his Boston game. As is Joba’s if you take out his Cleveland game. I can select only certain games for statistics as well.

              • Dorian

                No, that was Phil’s only bad start of the year. A.J. has had multiple awful outings as has Joba. Joba still has a problem with control while Phil hasn’t walked more than 1 since the Baltimore start.

                • Jose

                  Yeah, you’re right. Phil is much better than all of them. His career 5.22 ERA and 1.426 WHIP is what should be the gold standard for pitchers. That is also why Phil is in the starting rotation right now, because he has proven himself this year, oh wait…

                • Accent Shallow

                  That’s the funny thing with young pitchers, their career statistics aren’t necessarily reflective of how talented they are.

                  And the only reason Hughes is out of the rotation is due to the Yankees’ need to get Wang straightened out, not any fault of his own.

                • Dorian

                  Pay attention to what he is doing right now. Pay attention to what he did in the Starting Rotation. Sometimes statistics aren’t everything. I am a big proponent of statistics, but right now my eyes tell me that Phil should be in the Rotation either over Wang, Joba, or Andy.

    • yanke1313

      I’ll go out on a limb and agree with you.

    • Ivan

      I luv Hughes but currently

      He’s 4th best starting pitcher.

      CC
      AJ
      Joba
      Hughes
      Pettitte
      Wang.

      • Accent Shallow

        Joba certainly has had the better results, but I can see the disillusion with Joba. So it goes. He’s done everything we could ask for as a 23 year old, and the fact that we’re disappointed with solid results is just a reflection of how awesome he was in 2007-2008.

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

          He’s done everything we could ask for as a 23 year old, and the fact that we’re disappointed with solid results is just a reflection of how awesome he was in 2007-2008 freaking insane our expectations are.

          Fixed.

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

            Shut up, Tommie. Every 23 year old should mimic Tim Lincecum and be a finished, polished starting pitchuhhhh.

            • Drew

              He’s no POORSELLLO

          • Accent Shallow

            To be fair, he certainly fed into those insane expectations by showing ridiculous stuff and results in 2007-2008.

            You watched the team last year, you saw how fantastic he was. Obviously, you have to temper your expectations with young pitchers, but he was fucking nails last year, and we’ve never seen him struggle. It wouldn’t have surprised me to see him turn into prime-Roger Clemens this year.

            All that said, he’s been fine. Cannot complain about the results. The stuff has come and gone, which is a little worrisome, but I see little reason to not be anything but optimistic about his future.

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

              What are you saying, that he should have been less good initially so that we’d be less prone to wildly overdemanding how good he should be now?

              It’s his fault we’re acting irrationally, and not ours?

              • Accent Shallow

                Agree with your first sentence, disagree with your second.

                Clearly, his 2007 and 2008 results would influence expectations for his 2009 campaign.

                Did I expect him to contend for the 2009 AL Cy Young? No. Would it have surprised me? Not in the slightest.

                • Accent Shallow

                  Let me modify that: not that he should have been less good, but if he had been less good, the expectations would (obviously) be lower. Look at the expectations for Hughes this year after his 2008 campaign.

    The T-Wolves select a 3rd PG…

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

      Eh, maybe they really are trading one of them for David Lee.

      Between Rubio, Flynn, or Lawson, I’ll take Flynn.

      • Ivan

        Your that down on Rubio?

        I would of taken Rubio myself.

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

          Flynn >>>>>>> Rubio

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Theres a rumor that curry is gonna be part of the amare trade.

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

      How exactly is that gonna work?

      Link?

          Ah. Thanks for that blurb that contains no useful details, Alan Hahn. I guess I’ll have to just wait patiently.

  • Zach

    Twolves took Rubio, Flynn, Lawson

  • SS

    Ty Lawson? WTF. Do they want to play with five point guards?

    • yankeefan91 Arod fan

      hes gonna get traded to denver.

    • Zach

      Bucher said Lawson is going to Nuggets for a draft pick that the Bobcats owe the Nuggets

      • SS

        Saw that – wouldn’t put it past the Wolves to do something that retarded though.

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

        Fair enough.

    • Ivan

      They have 4 pt guards currently with Rubio, Flyn, Lawson and Telfair. Rubio is the best of the bunch obviously, and I assume the Wolves would use those pt guards as trading chips.

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

        I just laughed a little when you said “Telfair”.

        • Zach

          +1

  • Ivan

    Why the fuck would the Wolves draft another pt guard. I know chances are they are trading one of them but still.

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

    Never mind, Lawson was traded.

  • Zach

    Javier Vazquez PH?

  • Zach

    Tyler Clippard in for the Nats against Boston.
    rocking some glasses

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

    That is unfuckingacceptable, Aceves.

  • John

    cmon Ace that Javy Vasquez the pitcher

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    It must be brutal for those kids to sit there and hear them get ripped by the “experts”. Why doesn’t ESPN bring Skip Bayless out to rip everyone. That would be interesting.

    • Zach

      What do you want them to do? Just list their strengths and say they have the potentional to be the next Kobe, Duncan, Paul or Lebron?

      • Andy In Sunny Daytona

        No, there is no reason for all the players, on the best night of their life, have to hear everyone rip them and say how bad they are, and what a bad pick they are.

        • Zach

          How thin skinned can they be? I’m sure probably everyone kissed their ass growing up and on AAU and college, but someone along the way had to question them, and they’re getting picked 2,3,4 or whatever for a reason.
          Plus you’re getting what guranteed 15m? so who cares what bilas or van gundy says.

    • Ivan

      Skip “The Rip” Bayless.

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

      Skip Bayless is a cock.

  • DGeezy

    ugh its like we’re trying to give this game away

  • Jose

    Javier Vazquez has always done one thing, give a lot of innings. He has 2270.2 innings in 11 seasons.

    • Zach

      my fantasy leaves loves the Ks

      • Zach

        my fantasy team loves the Ks

    • Accent Shallow

      He’s the rare pitcher who underperforms his peripherals.

  • Drew

    Andy Pettitte makes me mad.

  • John

    Ace hella got squeezed 5 times on Gameday in the past 2 ABs

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

    Jazz take Eric Maynor.

    Nice, I was hoping he’d keep falling all the way to #29. Alas…

    • Ivan

      So who will be in the starting 5 of the Knicks?

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

        Way too early to tell.

  • yankees=warriors

    Since Sabathia is ok, will Hughes be able to pitch today?

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

    Dammit, Nick. Stop swinging first pitch.

    But, seriously, the 2B had him played very well.

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

    OOOOOOH, I know who I want at #29 who will be there: Patty Mills.

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

      It’s gonna be Stephen Strasburg.

      • Ivan

        He has mean cross over.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Knicks will select The Zohan.

  • charlespoet

    I think the Yankees are trying to pad Mo’s stats by creating a save situation. That was the plan and why Girardi left Pettitte in so long.

  • John

    5 pitches

  • BigBlueAL

    Had some idiots voting in the text poll tonight i see.

    Smoltz over Maddux? Seriously?

    • John

      red sox>>>>>>>>>>>>all

    • Jose

      Screw his 4 consecutive Cy Young Awards, 18 gold gloves and 355 wins.

      • Zach

        But was Maddox ever a Red Sox?

        • JobaWockeeZ

          That’s the only thing that decides if you are a good player or not.

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

            That’s why Babe Ruth is the greatest player ever and Lou Gehrig sucks donkey balls.

            • JobaWockeeZ

              Incorrect. Babe Ruth was the greatest player before being traded to the Yankees. Then he started to suck donkey balls along side Lou Gehrig. Everyone knows that the Yankees have no grit and that obviously means they cannot play good baseball.

              • Jose

                1927 Yankees: Bad team or worst team ever?

                • JobaWockeeZ

                  Terrible. Absolutely terrible. No grit factor whatsoever. But the absolute WORST team int he history of baseball would be the 1998 Yankees. Those Yankees will never learn grit because they only play for the money. Every Yankee ruins the good sport of baseball. The Red Sox are the saviors of baseball because they sacrifice their stats for one another, they don’t play for the money and they are just plain gritty.

        • Jose

          He will go into the Hall of Fame in a Red Sox uniform.

  • Jose

    Smoltz better than Maddux? Really? I mean it isn’t as egregious as Carl Pavano being better than Kevin Brown poll, but still.

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

      No, I’d say that’s worse. Smoltz was great, too, and there could be an argument for it. Pavano over Brown is just….that’s inexcusable.

      • Jose

        That is what I am saying. Who in their right mind would ever think there is any possible argument for Carl Pavano being better than Kevin Brown.

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

          Oh oh oh I read the comment wrong. Sorry, dude.

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

    Darren Collison at #21?!?!??!?!?!?

    MULTIPLE INTERROBANGS?!?!??!?!??!?!?!??!?!

  • Drew

    Kay, STFU. That impersonation of a manager was ridiculous.

  • Dorian

    Phil Hughes for the 7th?

  • Dorian

    Donnie. Take Patty Mills.

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

      Dude, it’s gonna be Strasburg. Or Bryce Harper.

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

      It’ll be awesome. An African-American kid named Patty Mills from St. Mary’s.

      Blacks, Irish, and Italians will all love him.

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

    Why the hell couldn’t Jeter field like this when he was in his hitting prime?

    • John

      no focus!!! Too busy lookin at the rings

      seriously, its jeters better position

  • Ivan

    Wouldn’t it be smart to let Hughes pitch either 7th or 8th.

    • Drew

      I think the CC monster needs a shadow tomorrow, just in case.

  • Jake H

    If Matsui has any wheels he probably gets an infield single.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    I thought the Knicks were going to take The Casspi. Oh well.

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

    The Kings take Omri Casspi, and the Hebrew section of the WaMu Theater goes wild.

    2 months older than Hughes. How do I apply for a job in the pen?

    • John

      throw 100 mph

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Just fill out an application at the front office.

    • Dorian

      Tell them you have 3 plus pitches. Tell them you have worked as a starter your whole career. Tell them you have an innings limit.

      • Accent Shallow

        Hahaha.

        +1

    • JobaWockeeZ

      You go to the farm system as a starter. Then after the majors everyone will want you as a reliever because every good Yankee fan knows that pitchers younger than 30 should go to the bullpen.

  • John

    Nice AB by JD…cmon Tex get some more breathing room.

  • Ivan

    BJ Mullins is a pretty solid pick.

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

      Yeah, at that low, you can afford to gamble. Maybe he pans out and you’ve hit the lotto.

    If A-Rod fails here he’s an unclutch, washed up poser who just pads his stats in the first few innings.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Who?

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

    I can’t wait to hear the Oklahoma City announcers describe Rodrigue Beaubois feeding Thabo Sefolosha on the fast break.

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

      Ah, DAMNIT, it’s a trade. Beaubois for Mullens.

      My dreams are crushed.

      • Arman Tamzarian

        buyers remorse that quickly?

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

          I’m just disappointed. I was looking forward to hearing an Oklahoma accent butcher “Beaubois to Sefolosha” several hundred times a year.

          “Mullens” is way too easy.

  • Accent Shallow

    I love Derek’s renaissance as a base stealer.

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

    So unclutch.

  • BigBlueAL

    Arod is back baby!!!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    I thought A-Rod is unclutch!!!!!!

  • Accent Shallow

    I’m enjoying A-Rod’s not being an automatic out anymore.

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

    Alex Rodriguez is heating up.

    League, you’ve been warned.

    A-Rod is atrocious. DFA him.

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

    Gibson and Collison have been two of the worst picks tonight. Big reaches.

    • BigBlueAL

      Blair still available.

      • Ivan

        Yep.

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

        Mills too.

    • Ivan

      Gibson had second rounder written all over him.

  • Stephen

    I wish A-Rod was more clutch

    • JobaWockeeZ

      No Grand slam for A-Rod? He’s a bust and the most unclutch player of the Yankees. We should DFA him. He should have scored 5 runs somehow with each AB, anything less will be considered unclutch.

      • Stephen

        i agree.
        Not actually but there are plenty of crazy people out there who wouldn’t think that statement is outlandish

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Oh yeah I know you’re joking around and yes unfortunately people will complain that he doesn’t score 5 runs with every AB.

  • John

    Make em pay for the disrespect Swish!

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

    What the hell are you doing with the first pitch swinging, Nick? Come on…

  • John

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

      Yeah, I’m not happy with this.

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

    If only Brett Gardner used his legs more…if he did, that 1-1 pitch is a double in the gap or down the line.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    “Ride the hot hand” he said.

  • Yankees Brawl

    so is it safe to say A-rod is back? the coolest thing is the fact that A-rod called this himself, you know your good when you can declare your slump over. Btw did anyone read the pujols article n foxsports i thought they were being unfair to all the gehrigs, aarons, EVEN A-rod by calling pujols the greatest right handed hitter ever. any thoughts?

    • John

      Dimaggio and Gehrig did it when not many HRs were hit and they had to hit it past death valley in YS

  • Arman Tamzarian

    Is Coke going to pitch every day?

    • chriskeo

      with girardi its possible, there was a stretch when coke was the only trusted arm

    • Accent Shallow

      He’s had 33 appearances with 30.1 IP prior to this, out of 71 Yankees games. It’s seemed like more than that, but it’s tough to assert he’s overworked with that line.
