    How many of you want Penny Lane?

  • Salty Buggah

    yes, I think so.

  • Arman Tamzarian

    What goes through Jerry Manuel’s mind when trotting out to the pitchers mound to bring in a reliever?

    • Zach

      Fire me please

      • Salty Buggah

        HAHA IETC

    • DreDog

      “Do you really want to hurt me.
      Do you really want to make me cry.”

    • GG

      He’s done a great job for what he’s playing with

  • Drew

    Mets=Fail

  • DreDog

    CC sits right?

  • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

    Did they say if Sabathia is done or not?

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      He is at 89 and I’d love to see what I call the ” Bear Roar” from CC.

      • Drew

        99?

        • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

          I’m looking at 89-61S bro.

          • Zach

            its 99-67

          • Drew

            it’s 99-67 i reckon

      • Zach

        99

        • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

          Sorry you guys are correct. I stand corrected. My fantasy thing failed me.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    They’re gonna balk a run in.

  • Teix is the man

    Pah-nell is da mets’ joba

    • TurnTwo

      with fielding like that, there is no way ARod was out with Kate late last night. he obviously learned his lesson.

      • TurnTwo

        oops, not meant to be a response here. oh well.

  • Dorian

    I definitely do Kate Hudson. Nice catch A-Rod.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      I think Kate has issues with her choice of men.

  • JP

    Who has more upside, Gardner or Melky? Melky is a whisker younger, I think, but Brett has less MLB experience. Which matters more?

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

      I think neither one of them has much upside, to be honest. But, I guess Gardner has a little more because of his on base skills, speed, and defense.

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

    But I thought Bobby Parnell was the new 8th inning guy who’s untouchable?!?!?

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      So much for that huh?

  • JP

    Mets TV broadcasters: “Gardner leads AL rookies in BA, OBP, Runs, and SB”

    In the words of the late great Carnac: “I did not know that.”

    • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

      ROY?

      • Dorian

        Hell yeah!!!!

      • Teix is the man

        Get me pah-cellos stats!

        • Zach

          he loves porcello, even though he goes 5.2 on average

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

            I love how he apparently said no one knew who Porcello was coming into this season.

            • Zach

              i believe the quote is: YOU NEVER HEARD OF HIM

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

                Haha, oh ignorance. I’m actually very impressed by Porcello’s showing this year. I thought, though, he’d be more of a strikeout guy, but I guess not.

                • Zach

                  Always heard he was a sinkerballer so I never really expected high Ks, but for the money they gave him I guess you’d expect a high K guy rather then a Wang/Pelfry

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

                  I always heard about the good curveball.

            • Drew

              CUZ WE WAS GAGA OVAH JOBBER

              • Teix is the man

                I love that line! he sounds like a gremlin!

          • Teix is the man

            I know…am I the only one sensing Francesa’s hypocrisy when it comes to Joba? When another young pitcher throws 5 innings its cool, but when Joba does it there’s no ice in his diet coke?

        • Dorian

          And I’ll teach Alex a lesson

      • Salty Buggah

        If he keeps it up, he has a really good shot but I wonder if media bias will keep it away from him.

        • Zach

          Porcello should win it, unless they shut him down in August due to innings

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

            Cahill’s in the conversation. He’s been tremendous of late, 3.15 ERA since May 1st.

            • Zach

              True, but if A’s finish last and Tigers win the division or get 85+ wins I think it’ll go to Porcello. But its still more then half the season to go, their numbers could blow up anytime

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

      I keep forgetting he still qualifies as a rookie.

  • Salty Buggah

    LeBron and Shaq wearing 23 and 33…like Jordan and Pippen

  • Dela G

    GRIT GUTNER!

  • Teix is the man

    I wipe my own ass….

  • http://rbiradio.blogspot.com/ Joey H.

    Good now Mo can get a save chance. Tomko is in.

  • Dorian

    Does Gardy still qualify as a Rook?

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

    I say it every night and I will continue to say it–Rodriguez’s arm is incredible.

    • Dela G

      i still think he is a top 5 SHORTSTOP if he decided to go back to it today

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

        That’s a bold statement.

        • Dela G

          He still has great range and only Hanley ramirez is better at the moment for all around game.

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

            He definitely does not have great range anymore. I think he’d be a below average to average SS in terms of range.

            • Drew

              I think he could drop 15- 20lbs easy and get his “mobility” back.

  • Dela G

    A ROD IS BACK BABY!

  • James A.

    No lead is Tomko proof

  • Drew

    Wait, so Al is better than D-Wright? Huh.

  • Teix is the man

    A-Rod doesn’t look 43 tonight @ 3rd

    • James A.

      He must read Buster Olney’s blog

      • putt

        I hope he’s framed it and posted it in his locker.

  • putt

    ARod looks great tonight!

    • putt

      And he’s playing pretty well, too.

  • Drew

    Did we ever find out how much payola we got for Veras?

    • Dela G

      20,000 dollars

      • Salty Buggah

        its more than that

        • Dela G

          no its not, it was 20gs

          • Salty Buggah

            cash said it was more than 20000 i thought

            • LiveFromNewYork

              I think we had to give them that much to take him.

      • Drew

        20 g’s plus a ’02 Civic.

  • Zach

    so this is david murphy mets fans were drooling over?

    • Zach

      daniel

  • Dela G

    Tomko was effective?

    HELL YEAH!

    • Teix is the man

      Watch out Bahstan, here we come =)

      • Dela G

        :)

  • Dorian

    Myyyyy has the mood changed around here.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Now if only we could get Bruney to pitch the 9th, finish them off, do a fist pump and then point to the sky this would be a perfect game.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Pena. Nice.

  • JP

    Gardy plays 120 games, hits .290/.370/.400, 80 runs, with a bunch of steals…

    Porcello goes 12-8, 4.15 ERA, 148 IP

    Does Gardy have a chance at ROY?

    • Zach

      Gardner would win that cause if he gets on base that much he’d get 40-50 steals.

      But doubt the numbers will end like that

      • JP

        I think the anti-Yankee thing would do him in…and you’re right, that’s a rosy projection for Gardy. But it could happen.

  • Teix is the man

    david cone, i think ur great, but STFU!

    • LiveFromNewYork

      srsly. I like Cone until this comes around.

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

    The Yankees don’t just need Joba in the rotation now, David. They need him in the rotation later as well.

  • Zach

    How the hell does Joba to the bullpen discussion during a game with CC and Tomko pitch and yankees winning 7-1?

    Hughes has nothing to do with Joba not going to the pen, Bruney getting healthy and Coke/Drob improving puts that talk to rest

  • LiveFromNewYork

    He’s a kid and he seems to be getting better.

    Really? How weird Michael.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Now steal home Brett

  • Zach

    Gardner 5 hit game, congrats

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Brett Gardner is completely godly tonight.

  • Dela G

    GRIT GUTNER WITH 5 HITS

    HOLY SHEET!

  • VO

    That’s it I gotta get my a Grit jersey.

  • JP

    Well I guess the weak lineup with 4 pitchers in there worked out OK. Go Brett!!!

  • DreDog

    Ramiro Pena. Is he our Randy Velarde?

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Belt for Brett tonight.

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

    Fuck. If CC wasn’t on in front of him earlier in the game and Gardner got that double, he would have cycled.

  • josh k

    Keep cranking them Yanks!! Who-hoo!!

  • Drew

    Gardy at .303! WTF

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Johnny says these whippersnappers are showing us up..

  • NYQ

    Gardner is a beast.
    Kay just said “He must b e feeling good about life.” LOL

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Mets fans are jumping off the Worlds Fair globe.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      If I were a Met fan I would have jumped after Beltran got injured.

      • Zach

        any met fans left after the last 2 septembers?

  • DreDog

    Was that hit by pitch intentional?

    • Drew

      nah slide piece.
      /Morgan’d

    • Zach

      yeah losing 9-1 they’re sending a message

  • LiveFromNewYork

    so now we’re beating a decimated Mets. Thank you Michael Kay.

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

      Well, I don’t see Matsui, Swisher, Posada or Jeter in the starting lineup either.

  • Drew

    We are soooo old!!!

    • Teix is the man

      teh sox have grit jizzing of their unif-ams. that’s why cap’n tek is teh all-stah and posada is teh suxor!

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Who the hell is Ted? Roomate, BFF or lovah lovah?

  • LiveFromNewYork

    The requisite fat bald guy shot.

  • ARX

    Exactly how long would Gardner have to keep this up (not THIS type of game of course….just, say, .280ish/.370/.400) before anyone changed their minds about him long term? Not goin crazy on him, just wondering.

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

      I’d say the whole season.

      • Zach

        what’s long term though? hes not going to block ajax

  • Salty Buggah

    whoa whoa whoa…so Gardy is 2nd on the Yanks in BA now? oh shit that’s whats up!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jake H

    Can’t believe that if CC goes to 3rd Gardner gets a double and hits for the cycle.

  • Drew

    Kay updates us on the position change with 2 strikes left. Good catch Kay.

  • Dela G

    YANKEES WIN!!

    THAAAAAA YANKEES, WIN!

  • Accent Shallow

    Yay Tomko! Yay win! Just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      yay beer!

      That ALWAYS sounds right…

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Player of the game? Hmmmmm…..could it be Sa….I mean Gritner?

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Did a Yankee fan punch Mr. Met in the head?

    Sweet.

    • Zach

      assisted suicide

  • Stu H

    Amazing night by Gardner. Going 5-6 w/ a triple, a homer, and a steal makes his stats now good enough to qualify as an all-star! .811 OPS, 17 of 19 steal attempts while playing excellent defense in center is something that any team would love.

    Those stats are so much prettier than his .747 OPS pre-game!

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Gardner sounds like he’s from Jersey and he’s from South Carolina. Where did he get that accent?

    • Zach

      Born in SC, college in SC too

  • AJ

    Nady out for the year..ugh.

  • Tony

    Gardner should be getting any ABs Nady would have gotten. The haters need to recognize.

    Word.
