Game 103 Spillover Thread III


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

  1. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

    no shit, michael kay

  2. Mike bk says:

    “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.

  3. 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.

  4. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Thanks Derek

  5. acb says:

    wouldnt be a yankees game without a late inning rally killer

  6. Brazilian Yankee says:

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

  7. acb says:

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

  8. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

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

  9. panic button says:

    DL Bruney and Aceves :(

  10. Riddering says:

    Wait, the lone baserunner was a rally?

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

  11. acb says:

    tomorow on espn your gonna see a story like this

    “bronson arroyo goes on waivers”

  13. Kevin G. says:

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

  14. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

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

  15. E-ROC says:

    Doesn’t Melancon remind you of Roger Clemens?

  16. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Nice work by Melancon

  17. panic button says:


  18. acb says:

    i smell a double play

  19. Mike Axisa says:

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

  20. E-ROC says:

    Tex just missed that one. Damn.

  21. acb says:

    i love how cano is smiling in the dugout.

  22. E-ROC says:

    C’mon Arod! Think!

  23. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

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

  24. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Just another great play to finish a great game.

  25. Dela G says:


  26. acb says:

    i feel like im watching the mets now

  27. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

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

  28. panic button says:

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

  29. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

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

  30. acb says:

    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.

  31. E-ROC says:

    I wonder if Mitre gets another start.

  32. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

    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

  33. acb says:

    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

  34. acb says:

    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 says:

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

  35. frank says:

    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 says:

      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.

  36. You Don't Mess With The Johan says:

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

  37. V says:


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