      • Salty Buggah

        Yep, 5 runs in 5 innings is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! We should have had 20, this team cant hit with RISP (though Im kinda pissed about the 2-9 w/RISP today but that’s just for today, I’m not saying the whole season we’ve sucked like the others)

  • Salty Buggah

    OK, let’s go offense again! This time please hit with RISP

  • Brazilian Yankee

    We could use a 5-run inning right about now.

  • Mikebk

    guess ace shoulder is feeling good enough

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      He said it felt fine, so he should be ready to go tonight if/when he comes out.

        well i dont think he is warming up for show so i assume he is coming in this inning.

    Octavio Dotel warming in the pen for the ChiSox. Outstanding.

  • Yankee1010

    Yeah, I was just responding to the 1 inning D-Rob reference. I understand the point. However, he has had fantastic K/9 numbers throughout the minors and the majors. Plus, he did a hell of a job last inning in shutting it down. This was essentially my post in the last thread, but it was obviously closed when I submitted it.

    There are far worse options than D-Rob as the 5th/6th guy out of the pen.

    The offense and the pen will win this tonight.

      thats what Im thinking but Jeter isnt exactly the patient type (especially when they are high)

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

          He doesn’t want to waste any homers until the team REALLY needs it. Like in the 8th inning.

          What a superclutch hero and selfless humanitarian.

          • Riddering

            “He doesn’t want to waste any homers until the team REALLY needs it. Like in the 8th inning 9th inning of Game 7 of the WS.”

            That’s more like it.

    • Yankee1010

      Really? Tex has been a stud. I’m not sure if people want him to crap thunder or diamonds.

      I can’t imagine the pressure one must feel singing as a free agent with the Yankees. If you don’t cure cancer, AIDS and solve the deficit, you’re an unequivocal failure.

      I’ll admit, I love Teixeira. In a platonic way. My best friend my whole life went to college with Tex’s best friend growing up. I’ve been with Teixeira and the guy is nothing but the best guy you could ask for. He has been a legitimate Mattingly fan his whole life. And a good dude. And trust me, I start on the assumption that somebody I know is an asshole. My wife would not let me buy another Yankee name and number t-shirt (understandably because I’m at about 30 them right now) without getting rid of an old one. She didn’t let Teixeira count against that though. She realized that Teixeira is a good dude.

      I’ve done a decent amount of charity work in my life and I can tell when people are faking it. Take a look at Tex during HOPE week; he was honestly all about that. I know a lot people couldn’t care about that, but the kid is honestly a great guy.

      Oh, and he’s hitting the shit out of a baseball and fielding the shit out of it too.

      The kid is a great guy, plays the game the right way, and does everything you could ask for.

      • Riddering

        I was being a smart-ass but now I feel cowed by your love for Teixeira. I thought I was crazy about him but now I’ve to put his picture up in my office and draw hearts around his name or something to compete.

    The Yanks have no chance to win. Sabbathia is a guaranteed 5 earned runs in any game he pitches. This team that can no hit with runners in scoring position is the one you will see in the playoffs. Good Job Cashman not beating Detroit’s offer. Mitre is solid. Igawa next.

    Lay. Off. Posada. Yeah, the Yanks are better off with Molina. Good God. Does nobody rememeber last year? It’s as if nobody remember the last 10 years (or this year) getting ridiculous production from Posada at catcher.

    Did the middle school dance get out early tonight? I’m going out soon, but good God. Posada is a premium all-around catcher. But yeah, focus on this night and this night only.

    • Salty Buggah

      hehe I guess it can get frustrating if he swings at the 1st pitch and makes an out each time in a game where the starter sucked and we are struggling with RISP

      • Yankee1010

        And we’ll take these 4 at-bats and throw out the last 10 years? Even if those 10 year show that he was incredibly patient with awesome power for a catcher?

        Yeah, it’s not ideal if a guy swings at the 1st pitch if a pitcher is having control issues. However, this is not a chronic Jorge issue. Cano, yeah, he swings at far too many pitches out of the zone when there are runners on or RISP, or the bases loaded. However, we’re talking about Posada. If people are complaining about Posada at the plate, they need to go root for U.S. Steel back in the day.

        yeah.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    when do they put in shelley?

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

      When they need him… which would be, not today.

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

    Doug Davis walked six guys in six innings tonight. Against the METS!

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

      Is that possible?

    • Ivan

      Not really shocked. Doug Davis BB #’s are quite bad.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Uh ohhh.

  • E-ROC

    Its Nix, for goodness sakes.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    There is no fucking way Aceves is healthy right now.

    • Mike bk

      nope. time to dl?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    And to think this is one of the reliable arms in the ‘pen. We are so screwed.

  • Reggie C.

    Aceves = Mitre.

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

      You’re better than that, Reggie.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    Ace is toast.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    dammit

  • panic button

    Game over. Aceves to the DL now?

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

    This game sucks. Fucking 0-2 hits.

    • Salty Buggah

      so frustrating when coupled with the 2-9 with RISP (0-7 since the 1st)

  • Ivan

    ugh.

  • Mike Ox

    Think Cashman wishes he picked up a reliever now?

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

      No, not really.

  • Salty Buggah

    damn, we should win this game

  • acb

    well this is the yankees they go from looking like the best team in baseball to the worst.

    • Yankee1010

      Yep, you’re right. The Nationals look so much better right now.

      I don’t even want to look at the records right now. They would depress me far too much.

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

      Every team in baseball does that.

  • Mike bk

    time for melancon

  • E-ROC

    Matt Thornton will be coming in for the Sox. Next inning is a bit bleak. Chris friggin’ Getz?

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Did Aceves not say his arm felt fine?

    Players need to be honest, I don’t care how much they want to play. If they are hurting, then they shouldn’t play.

  • VO

    Theres something wrong with Ace.

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

    Fuck. That was a waste pitch, too. 9 times out of 10 that’s weakly fouled off.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    posada. wtf?

  • cjc

    ball game goodnight all

  • Luis Polonia

    Do Aceves’ struggles = injury or regression to the mean?

    • Mike bk

      injury

  • Mets Fan 260

    Yankee fans- time to hit the bar- Aceves is awful. Back to back changeups in the same spot. Good call by Posada- Yanks going home early in the playoffs again. great relief.

    Tony Bernazard 4 life

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      We’ll do our best to describe to you what going to playoffs, you know, is actually like.

      BA-ZING!

  • Ivan

    Great.

  • Arman Tamzarian

    What the Fuuu?

  • Mets Fan 260

    Good arm by Hinske. Are you sure he is a man or do all Yankee outfielders throw like girls?

  • Mike bk

    so now that Ace should be going to the DL, and bruney still not right how does Hughes leave the pen to cover for Mitre?

  • E-ROC

    Worry about the batter, people!

  • Mike Ox

    Wow,just wow.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Really? Not only they don’t know how to play D, but they can’t think either. This is garbage.

  • RCK

    Ok. Now I’m demoralized.

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

    I would really not like to see Aceves worked like this after his FUCKING SHOULDER WAS FATIGUED.

    • Chip

      They don’t have much else out there. Would have been nice to have Albie on a night like tonight. From what I can figure, they might just have to throw Melancon to the wolves for a few innings

    • Salty Buggah

      yea should have taken him our after the 2 run single

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    YOUR ACEVES ASPLODE

    I’m going to play Curse of Monkey Island instead of watching this game.

  • Mets Fan 260

    This is great- Yankees are a joke

    • Chip

      Yeah how about those Mets? I hear they’re doing well in their battle against the beat writers

    • http://www.YouTube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

      Wait, you’re a Mets fan, and your calling the Yankees a joke?

      lol

    • Sweet Dick Willie

      If the Yanks are a joke, what are the Mets?

      They’re not even good enough to pull their annual September choke.

  • Pasqua

    Regardless of the outcome, this game is bad timing for Cashman. The scrutiny over his non-moves is going to be hot ‘n heavy, if only because Mitre was terrible and the Aceves shoulder problem has been lingering for a few days and resulted in this performance.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    I blame A-Rod for this game and for Cash for not getting anyone.

    • Pasqua

      Naturally.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Please ban Mets Fan 260

  • claybeez

    Posada…WTF?!!!

  • Salty Buggah

    well our pen is cooked but so is theirs

  • panic button

    ROFL nice game Posada. Is Montero ready yet?

  • Ivan

    OMG, This game is getting me really furious.

  • Dela G

    wow can this get any worse?

    kill me now

  • Bob Stone

    This game is just plain ugly now.

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

    I take it Girardi gave up after the Getz single.

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

    Okay, seriously, that’s some crazy shit. Just not our night.

  • E-ROC

    C’mon, Jorge!!!!!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Posada, another gem on the field.

    Why pull Aceves now? The game is already lost, leave him in there.

  • Yankee1010

    So, the silver lining for this game is that all the fair weather/Chicken Little fans are 250 feet deep in East River, right?

  • Mets Fan 260

    Join us Mets fans on the pathetic team Bus. 2000 was a long time ago

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      September 2008, however, was last year.

      The previous September wasn’t that far back, either.

    • Chip

      1986 was longer

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

      First place is right now.

    • Pasqua

      Taking a shot at your own team won’t save you now.

      Look how happy they seemed! Ah, memories.

  • Mike Ox

    Nice throw by Cano. I guess effort and pride is not part of the Dominican vocabulary. Yeah thats right I went there.

  • acb

    the yankees should be taking notes on how to get hits with men on base.

  • Eirias

    Melancon! Oh, wait… that means we are losing.

  • Riddering

    Home is a loose, wanton plate. Goddammit.

  • DGeezy

    these kind of games scare me, we’ve had too many where we’re right in it & all of a sudden it blows away from us

  • cashman = genius

    I guess we have to add the White Sox to the list of teams we can’t beat. Right now the list is:

    -Red Sox
    -Angels
    -White Sox

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      Why not add the Nationals to this list of yours we once lost a game against them amirite

  • Salty Buggah

    tonight and last night just havent been our nights. We’ll get em tomorrow (though the game isnt over yet)

  • Eirias

    Melancon’s out pitch is a Curveball? Who knew?

  • Mike bk

    Ace should be going to the DL now, and bruney still not right how does Hughes leave the pen to cover for Mitre?

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

      Because the rotation is the priority. If Hughes was the starter tonight, the pen likely wouldn’t have been overexposed.

      Good starters make relievers better.

  • Luis Polonia

    Yuck. This looks like another one of those sloppy series for the Yankees. Oh well, we were somewhat due for few clunkers after killing it for two straight weeks after the ASB. I’d rather it happen now than against Boston.

  • panic button

    Bring on Sir Sidney!

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

      You have an appropriate name.

  • E-ROC

    Melancon is getting some work.

  • acb

    0-10 vs sox completly embarresed all 10 games with sloppy plays mental errors no clutch hits

  • Pasqua

    Ortiz’s positive test is uncovered and WE start losing?

  • panic button

    More innings for Melancon, less for Aceves.
