Bleich dominates in Trenton win

I’d really like to see Melancon at least get a chance at something more than mop-up innings.

    no shit, michael kay

    “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.”

    I agree with that but who would be left out there, coke and mo? girardi wont use melancon other than mop up, Marte is throwing 88 at scranton and D-Rob is fine for 1 inning at a time.

    • panic button

      Kei Igawa will be in the bullpen.

      Both Robertson and Aceves looked good for one inning. They looked much less good pitching two.

      Had Hughes gone, say, 6 innings, that’s 3 for the pen. Coke, Aceves, D-Rob, and Melancon could easily make it through two innings to hand it to Mo.

      • Mike bk

        i wouldnt say Ace looked good for one, but he got through one clean. I also said Ace is probably going to the dl looking at how he looked. if he was healthy then its easy.

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

          Perhaps.

          Bottom line is, even if it weakens the pen considerably, it’s still the smart thing to do. Even if we have no solution to the bullpen problem, fix the starting rotation problem first.

          • Mike bk

            if they believed that we never would have had the mitre experiment in the first place. im just saying i think they will use all the other stuff as the excuse to leave phil where he is.

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

              And they’re wrong. Perhaps they’ll realize that soon.

              • Mike bk

                i certainly hope.

    I still can’t believe Tony Bernazard actually showed up in our game thread and posted all those comments as “Mets Fan 260″. That was weird.

    I guess he’s got more time on his hands now.

    • Mike bk

      just wait…next time he will challenge the server to a fight.

    • Jack

      Better on his hands than in ‘em, I always say.

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

        It’s too bad Bernazard never had a chance to scout Matt Bush.

        • Jack

          Oh my god. There would be freshmen flying everywhere.

    • Mets Fan 260

      Los Yankees suckers

        Look at all that talent he assembled! What a savvy GM he must be.

        Hey, look who learned how to use a reply button.

          Just ignore him, guys.

                Spring training. The only place the Mets are any good.

  • Arman Tamzarian

    Thanks Derek

    • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

      such a rally killer. what is he on the all-time DP list?

      • Sweet Dick Willie

        lmgtfy.com

  • acb

    wouldnt be a yankees game without a late inning rally killer

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I just hope our guys remember how to play baseball tomorrow.

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

      I hope we remember how to comment tomorrow.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Is Buerhle pitching tomorrow…?

      • Mike bk

        sunday.

        danks vs aj tomorrow
        buerhle vs cc sunday

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

          Too bad Sabathia is going to give up 5 runs because he sucks.

      • Bob Stone

        Danks is pitching for the ChiSox vs. A.J. Burnett

  • acb

    maybe if girardi gets thrown out of the game we can come back and win it

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    Thome better hit a fuckin homer; hes on my fantasy team. this game is done.

  • panic button

    DL Bruney and Aceves :(

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

      Again, you have a really, really appropriate name.

  • Riddering

    Wait, the lone baserunner was a rally?

    Damn, even the rallies on this team suck. We’ll never see October again!

  • acb

    tomorow on espn your gonna see a story like this

    “bronson arroyo goes on waivers”

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

      “Red Sox break Curse, finally win Trading Deadline Day World Series Championship”

    • Jack

      What’s your point?

    Bah, I hate AJ Pierzynski and his glow in the dark hair.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    ESPN: “Yanks fall as Red Sox creep closer to first place”

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      They would do that.

  • E-ROC

    Doesn’t Melancon remind you of Roger Clemens?

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

      They’re both pitchers.

      That’s all I got.

      • E-ROC

        I thought his profile looks like Roger Clemens, though the latter was a bit bigger than the former.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Nice work by Melancon

  • panic button

    NICE WORK MELANCON!

  • acb

    i smell a double play

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

    Melancon has retired 14 of the last 17 batters he’s faced, and one of those three reached on an error.

  • E-ROC

    Tex just missed that one. Damn.

  • acb

    i love how cano is smiling in the dugout.

    • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

      duh! he’s still gettin his cash money

  • E-ROC

    C’mon Arod! Think!

      [ facepalm ]

      Seriously, Alex… Did it really matter? If Matsui hits a two run homer here, it’s gonna look even dumber.

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

        Selfish A-Rod, trying to pad his stats and get home earlier.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    My 12-hour procrastination is wasted. Michael Kay can STFU.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Just another great play to finish a great game.

  • Dela G

    yearg!

  • acb

    i feel like im watching the mets now

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    Cashman better have something huge to pull out of his ass in August or I’m gonna have to choke a b*tch!

    • panic button

      Kei Igawa count?

  • panic button

    Igawa will be called up to start in place of Mitre.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    Fans of teams who can’t spell “socks” are dickheads.

  • acb

    why do the yankees have to wait until after the trade deadline to play like this. if this was happening a week ago we would have roy halladay starting tonights game.

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

      No, we wouldn’t have.

  • E-ROC

    I wonder if Mitre gets another start.

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

      Probably, yeah.

      • panic button

        You’re a masochist.

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

          Nope. Masochists enjoy pain. I just resign myself to it as a part of life.

    • panic button

      Oh yeah, I hope so. Who wouldn’t want to see another loss?

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    List of people I blame for this loss:
    1. A-Rod (given), 2. cashman 3. posada 4. girardi (for not letting shelley come in and hit a 10-run bomb) 5. that lazy bum cano 6. did i already say a-rod 7. damon’s noodle arm

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

      You left out Swisher.

      I can’t BELIEVE you left out Swisher.

      • Jack

        Yeah, him and his off days! If he wasn’t such a pansy, he would have played and single-handedly won us the game tonight!

  • acb

    well since the yankees didnt make a move im pretty sure someone will get injured now. so our rotation could end up with igawa and mitre

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

      Who says they won’t make a move?

  • acb

    and im pretty sure the whitesox have more 2 out hits in this game then the yankees do all season

    • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

      clever, i like. the fact that they’ve got “sox” in their name makes them gritty.

  • frank

    Seriously, if Brubey remains ineffective and Aceves can’t get the job done, or if he’s hurt(that’s 2 bad appearances in a row), coupled with no 5th starter to speak of, this team is in big trouble.

    • BigBlueAL

      The team isnt in big trouble. However I do believe the pitching staff is in alot worse shape than most people here want to believe.

  • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

    Cliff Lee no-no through 5. That’ll be over soon. Mitch Williams is salivating.

  • V

    zOMG THE SEASON IS OVER zOMG!

    Oh, wait. When we wake up tomorrow, the Yankees will… be in first place?

    • You Don’t Mess With The Johan

      we cant beat gritty teams

    • acb

      the mets and the bluejays were in first place at somepoint in the season. so really not sayin much that were in first place in august
