• Teix is the Man

    who’s coming in?

    • lt

      just listened to big michael kay say that its different then the ol days when noboby rubbed themselves when by a pitch. but questioned a guy rubbed his arm…hey mike..lets throw pitches at you and see if u dont rub ur arm..oh. thats right..u never played..

      • lt

        sorry when hit by a pitch

  • Mike bk

    Axisa showing the bullpen love…lol

  • Salty Buggah

    Yes, please…even though we already should be as that was strike 3!!!

  • Dela G

    right now it seems we need jesus to get out of this one :)

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      Well, he is a catcher. No help here.

      • Dela G

        haha icwudt

  • Salty Buggah

    I dont want Ace here…I wanted Philly

  • Teix is the Man

    Joba would be perfect for this role

    lol. not many aces are taken out after 90 pitches after a 9 pitch inning. It’s happened, just not often.

    Oh, ok. Because he’s an “ace”, he can’t be taken out of a game that he’s given up more runs in than innings he’s pitched.

    • Drew

      lol dude, what do you want, an award because he only got two outs?

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

        No, he just thinks your logic is a little flawed. Just because he’s an ace and a workhorse doesn’t mean he needs to be out there for 100+ pitches, especially if he’s not being effective.

        • Drew

          That’s fine, as I’ve said, we just disagree. We’re not dealing with facts, we’re dealing with opinions.

      • Charlie
        • Charlie

          i just really wanted to use that

          • Drew

            Word, fire Girardi. He was wrong.

            • Charlie

              He was indeed, wrong.

              • Drew

                Wait, you were “right,” you should manage!

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

          I’ve used that like 5 times.

          • Charlie

            sorry, never really saw that. And if i did, i’m not gonna lie. i would have used it anyway

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

              Haha, word. It’s an awesome clip. I <3 Dr. Cox.

    • Dela G

      roy halladay was taken out early on monday…

  • Drew

    Ace backing up the Ace.

    • yankees=warriors

      Witty!

    • BklynJT

      And THIS is why we were calling for Girardi to take out CC before the inning started.

      • Drew

        heh, i guess your crystal ball is better than mine.

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    The Umps are having a down year. I don’t remember so many bad calls.

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

      He probably thought it was low.

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        Well, frankly, he’s a jerk.

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

          Oh snap.

      • Mike Pop

        Where are thr robotic umps! I want consistency.

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

          Haha. Honestly, though, MLB needs to have a standardized, strictly enforced strike zone. Hitters and pitchers alike shouldn’t have to guess at where the strike zone is going to be on a given night.

    • Dela G

      sometimes i wish they would review their own games every night and see how much they sucked

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

        I’m relatively certain they do, actually.

        But seriously, their job is not as easy as it looks.

        • Dela G

          yeah i def agree, but as pros, they shouldn’t suck this bad….

      • Train

        They do review their games every night. The difference between this year and years past is that the Questec system is no longer in use. They got replaced by something supposedly better but from what I’ve seen they have regressed.

  • Dela G

    haha kay got too excited there…

  • Reilly

    Strike him out Aceves!

  • Mike Pop

    Why don’t you bring in Mo here?

    • Mike Pop

      That’s a why!

  • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

    Shite. lost my stream. what’s happening?

    • Dela G

      ace struck him out

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        sweet

  • yankees=warriors

    Phew!

  • Dela G

    NICE JOB ACE!

  • Reilly

    Struck em out!

  • Professor Oak

    ACE!!!!

  • Reggie C.

    Aceves is a true follower of the g-code.

  • Riddering

    YES. MEXICAN GANGSTER.

    How long until Ace starts getting his own merchandise?

    • Dela G

      one day they’ll hand out free tshirts have the ace of spades as a promotion for this guy

      • Riddering

        And on that day the world will tremble in awe!

        • Dela G

          YEZZUR!

      • Charlie

        awesome if they did… aceves is such a beast

  • Salty Buggah

    Phew…Good job Ace

  • BklynJT

    This reeks of a comeback and win for Aceves.

    Hughes for the 7th and 8th? Unless of course, if Hughes uses more than 8 pitches to get out of the 7th. Apparently 9 is Girardi’s magic number for Hughes

    • Ivan

      Well I can see Girardi using Aceves for the 7th which I would not have any issues with.

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

    So, WOULD you guys want robotic umps?

    I wouldn’t.

    • Drew

      I would. Why wouldn’t you?

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

        The human element does add something to it, I think.

        • Drew

          True, I’d enjoy the consistency. I REALLY hate umpires.

    • Mike Pop

      Would probably work both for and against you, just like they do now. One downfall is people lose jobs. America don’t need that now.

      • Shdw

        Actually to make and maintain those robots would create more jobs than there are umpires

        • Mike Pop

          I was wrong, and for this. I apologize.

          But, what would Angel Hernandez and C.B. Buckner do?

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

            Take my umpiring gigs in the Cal Ripken League.

          • Shdw

            They can go do something they are actually good at

    • Riddering

      Do the robotic umps have laser beams?

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        thief.

      • DGeezy

        they better so they can defend themselves from milton bradley & carlos zambrano when they disagree with calls

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

        As long as the laser beams are used to shoot those people who do the wave, yes.

        • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

          sweet. I smirked.

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

      No, I wouldn’t. But as I’ve said numerous times, there needs to be a strictly enforced, standardized strike zone.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      I’d like 100 percent correct umpires, human or not. Now it will be impossible for every human ump to be 100 percent so I’d take anything that can give 100 percent.

      • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

        what about ups that where special glasses that illuminate the strike zone and mark where a ball passes through it. You retain the human element, while getting 99.9% accuracy and create MORE jobs.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Anything that gives perfect to near perfect strike zones.

  • Ivan

    Good job Aceves.

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

    Cano with a four pitch walk. The Yanks are winning this game.

    • BklynJT

      Cano get’s those 4 pitch walks. It’s the 2 strike walks that he doesn’t get.

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

    Let’s go, Swish. Keep the line going.

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

      Or not. Dammit.

  • Teix is the Man

    swisher you are so fucking due

  • Dela G

    LETS GO YANKEES!

  • Riddering

    Swish wants to know where his three balls are.

  • Reilly

    The YES crew keeps acting like Jr. isnt a Mariner anymore. Are they letting him go?

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

      Well, they don’t come back to the Stadium the rest of the year and he will more than likely retire so…

    • DGeezy

      no but i think it would be fair to assume this is his last go around, his hitting skills have greatly diminished that he really doesnt appear to be worth keeping past this year.

    • V

      Again. He wasn’t a Mariner for, what, 8 years?

  • Eirias

    We’re taking Aceves out for the 7th, right?

    • DGeezy

      apparently not but Ace could use the work

  • yankees=warriors

    Can Gardner pinch hit for Swish?

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      no.

  • Dela G

    WOW SWISHA…. REALLY???

  • Drew

    It’s so hard for me to take Swish seriously with the mohawk.

  • Spaceman.Spiff

    Who’s playing second base for us today? I’m pretty sure the second baseman we had never hit with runners on, never hustled tagging up on fly balls, and also never took walks. Weird.

    • Drew

      I think his name is Rob Carson. A true American.

      • Spaceman.Spiff

        ietc

      • V

        IETC.

  • Drew

    It’s so nice not seeing Ace in the 4th/5th inning…

  • BklynJT

    Damn it, I wants me some Hughes!

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

      He can go 8 and hopefully 9.

      • zs190

        I hope not 9 (but that’s because I hope we have a lead then and can use Mo instead)

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

          I hope he pitches the 8th, the Yankees score a ton of runs, make it like…11-6 and have Hughes pitch the ninth. He could use the work.

  • Drew

    Fucking umpire

  • BklynJT

    This umpire pisses me off

  • Dela G

    wow where did that miss ump?

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      it missed up his pooper.

      • dkidd

    Ugh. The wave in the 7th inning of a close game.

    • BklynJT

      You gotta admit, they had a pretty decent wave going. I think it went around the stadium twice.

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

    People who do the wave should be slapped repeatedly.

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

    I’m dead. Seeing that wave killed me.

    • http://ryanhandt.blogspot.com/ handtius

      would a win resurrect you?

  • Shdw

    Is it just me or has Ace been wild in the last couple days?

    • Dela G

      its you

      • Salty Buggah

        eh, I dont know. He has seemed a bit wild but made his pitches when he had to.

        • BklynJT

          Ace has been behind in the count a lot recently but always seemed to get the job done.

          • Salty Buggah

            yep

    • Drew

      Wildly awesome? Yes.

      • Will (the other one)

        +1.

    • BklynJT

      He has, but he hasn’t given up the ball 4. And he’s been really good at painting corners.

  • Dela G

    the wave is for little league teams

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

      No, it’s not. It’s for no one. It should be banned from sports.

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    Ace was so frustrated by the wave he just had to hit somebody.

    • Salty Buggah

      heh IETC

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

    They kept trying to do the wave the last time I was there, kids in my section kept trying to start it. It was pretty awful.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      There were a few people sitting directly in front of me who tried to do it last night; it didn’t pick up, but if it did, I probably would have thrown my book at them.

  • Orlando

    don’t rub it!!!

    Stolen from LoHud:

    Montero has hit homers in each of his last 4 games played (5 total). 14 at bats, 6 runs scored, 8 hits, 1 double, 5 homers, 8 RBI, 4 walks and 3 strikeouts. He might get 1 more at bat.

      Theif! Jesus will punish you by throwing you out.

      i think its safe to say that BA will award Jesus Montero the #1 spot on the upcoming HOT SHEET .

    • Will (the other one)

      NOT stolen from LoHud: PeteAbe’s rugged, portly good looks.

      Count your blessings, Becca!

  • Riddering

    Johjima wanted to make up for getting on base.

  • Reggie C.

    Romine is slugging .500 in Tampa after tonight’s HR and 2B output. The OBP is up to .315… I think Montero’s got a little competition tonight for best performance from a minor leaguer..

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Matsui is done!!!!

  • yankees=warriors

    Wow, good night for Matsui!

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

    Worthless. Matsui’s absolutely worthless. DFA him for Shelley, like yesterday.

      +55

      Matsui is toast.

      • Drew

        ***Matsui is tempora’d.

    • Ace

      I’ll eat crow on Matsui for these last few games. For the record, let it be known that I manned up and showed up here to give the credit and take a few lumps instead of cowering in my apartment in the corner, in the fetal position…shivering.

      • Drew

        The latter would’ve been more enjoyable.

  • Orlando

    told ya

    • Charlie

      wtf are you doing? Do you only comment in 2-4 word sentences?

      • handtius

        I max out at 5 words.

            I thank you very much.

  • Salty Buggah

    DFA HIM NOW!

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Oneill just said that the Mariners do not field the ball well. I’m pretty sure that is not true.

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

      Well, they lead the league in errors, therefore, they must be bad fielders.

      Seriously, though, their good defense is a byproduct of the now absent Beltre and their RIDICULOUS OF defense.

    Too early for Melk, but his clutchness will overcome.

      Started with an “A” I think.

      • Teix is the Man

        asshole…oh, wait, AXL!

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

        It was Ace.

  • yankees=warriors

    Bad luck…

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

    Please pinch hit for Cervelli.

  • Salty Buggah

    Is Melky still trying to swing for the fences?

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

    They are not PHing for Cervelli…Posada’s thumb in that bad of a way?

  • arlok789

    Should they have pinch hit here?

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

      The problem is that if you PH for Cervelli JoPo has to catch and if JoPo’s thumb can’t catch, you can’t PH.

  • Ivan

    Lets go Cevelli

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

      WHY DO YOU DO THAT TO ME KAY!?

  • Salty Buggah

    no pinch hit? we need a run here!

  • Salty Buggah

    Jeter won’t come through here…

    • handtius

      glad you had faith.

      • Salty Buggah

        tried the reverse psychology but it didnt work (it worked 3 times a row last time tho)

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

    So we’ll win it in the 9th. I’m cool with that.

  • Salty Buggah

    man, we really needed that run. Leadoff double and no runs = ATROCIOUS!

    • yankees=warriors

      Not the first time it’s happened.
      Besides, they didn’t get to 3rd base, so it hurts less…

  • yankees=warriors

    That rally ended in a hurry.

  • Ivan

    Who pitches the 8th?

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

      Phil better pitch 8/9. He needs the work.

    • Dela G

      jesus?

  • Stephen

    Jeter is so unclutch

    • Orlando

      ha ha ha…uh NO..next time you make a comment like that we’ll have to take you out back and shoot you!!!

  • Orlando

    I really hate Jojhima!!!

  • Drew

    Shoulda bunted!!!11!

  • DGeezy

    im more upset at melky not being able to move matsui over to 3rd

  • Riddering

    I think Cash and co. decided to cut Hughes innings limit in half in order to piss off the entire world.

    • Drew

      an inning yesterday, an inning today. Whats the problem?

      • Drew

        Oh wait, he only threw 9 pitches yesterday. Damnit Girardi, tell Hughes to throw more pitches next time you call on him.

  • yankees=warriors

    LOL!

  • Ivan

    Aceves Another inning…

  • Drew

    Eh, I just had flashbacks to Matsui’s broken hand dive.

  • Salty Buggah

    Tex HAS to get a big hit in this game…he is so overdue

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

    I’m pretty sure he was safe at second.

    • Teix is the Man

      No, he was out.

    • Dela G

      same here

    • VO

      On the replay he looks safe.

    • Riddering

      I didn’t see it from the other angle, but it looked like his foot didn’t hit the bag until after Robbie tagged him.

  • yankees=warriors

    Is it just me or does it seem Damon’s arm has been improving?

    • Teix is the Man

      teh roids!!!!

    • handtius

      Just you.

  • Dela G

    WOOOOO JOHNNY DAMON!

  • DGeezy

    nice job by ace

  • Riddering

    Alright, now, after that inning we have to win.

  • DreDog

    Ace is trying to get his ERA under 2.00.
    That’s the magic number. Then we can ask KLaw about trading him for Mauer!

    • Will (the other one)

      Nah, that deal would never, ever get done. Dude, one of those guys is a perennial all-star and probable future Hall-of-Famer…the other’s just Joe Mauer.

      • DreDog

        You’re right. That deal only gets done if the Yankee front office people are Twins fans.

    • yankees=warriors

      Do we really need anotehr catcher?
      I think we need a good reliable reliever like Aceves more.

  • Jake H

    WHile the M’s BP has been good. I have faith they can win this. the BP has been great.

  • Drew

    I don’t understand this, do ya’ll want to win, or get everyone their necessary work? Why do so many complain when Girardi makes the “right” move?

    • Reilly

      Gosh. Maybe some 9th inning magic?

  • Salty Buggah

    It’s funny how no one from the MSM is praising our pen now but bashed at will before.

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      No, they’ll just wait for us to screw up again and pick up where they left off.

  • Orlando

    Here we go COMEBACK!!!!!

    who’s their closer?

    Ace after throwing 32 pitches and pitching last night?

    Who killed Robertson?

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

    Is Girardi just waiting til Saturday to get Hughes work so he can piggy back Wang?

  • Drew

    lol Teix is having a not so nice night.

  • V

    Teixeira NOT having a good defensive night.

  • yankees=warriors

    Wow, really not Tex’s day, huh?

  • dkidd

    he was way due

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

    Holy. Shit.

  • Drew

    Kay is soooo happy! FUCK YOU KAY

  • V

    Ok, that’s the ballgame. I don’t see a 4 run comeback.

  • handtius

    oh fuck.

  • Teix is the Man

    Mother fucker

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Big blow for Seattle Kay?

  • Will (the other one)

    Ace really wants to put the sombrero on Russell Branyan here.

    • Will (the other one)

      Well FAIL me. Sorry guys.

  • yankees=warriors

  • thebusiness

    Girardi is so dumb.

  • Pingback: Montero does it again in a loss | River Avenue Blues

  • Shdw

    How is Girardi going to justify putting Ace out there for the 9th. He has other options…

    • V

      I think it’s time to start the ‘Free David Robertson’ chants.

  • Salty Buggah

    damn

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    I know someone’s going to say it’s retrospective, but really…pushing the envelope with Aceves here, much?

    • Shdw

      Actually my post a couple above this was pre-homerun

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

      Yeah, I thought so. But he was getting outs, tough call.

      • The Fallen Phoenix

        It is a tough call, but I don’t think it’s crazy to bring Robertson in to start the 9th.

      • Moshe Mandel

        Exactly. I didn’t love the move, but didn’t we have a whole post up here today about limiting the number of relievers you use? Ace was rolling.

    • DGeezy

      agreed

    Well, that was fun. Anything good on HBO tonight?

  • Drew

    CAN THEY TELL US WHO’S COMING IN? I am so fucking tired of YES.

  • Riddering

    I just vomited in my mouth.

  • Orlando

    Does Branyan think that he is Josh Hamilton or something?

  • Salty Buggah

    should have taken him out dammit

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

    He puts in Robertson? What the hell? This is a perfect Tomko situation.

    • Ivan

      The yanks are still trying to win the game here.

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

        Yeah, but, I think even Tomko can hold a four run deficit where it is.

  • Orlando

    Kay stepping up with the Aceves pushing the limit comment…

  • Drew

    I too was a little surprised that Ace came back out, but, maybe Joe has “Philly Rules.” I know D-Rob, Coke and Tomko are out there but I dunno.. I won’t go crazy on Joe for this one. Also, big Teix fucked up big in retrospect.

  • Salty Buggah

    no sub 2.00 ERA for ace :(

  • BklynJT

    Retarded. Girardi puts in Ace for 3+ innings but not Hughes. He really makes me rub my head sometimes

    • Drew

      Is Phil allowed to pitch two days in a row? Oh, you don’t know do you?

      • yankees=warriors

        Hughes didn’t pitch yesterday.

        • Drew

          lol. Me=fail…

          • yankees=warriors

            Nah, that wasn’t meant to rub you or anything.

            • Drew

              Nah don’t worry, but I feel like an ass cuz this isn’t the only post I said that in.. My memory.. not like it used to be.. lol.

  • Orlando

    Was that Aceves or the ghost of Veras?

  • captain crunch

    oh well start a new streak tomorrow

  • Chris B

    I can’t wait to hear the explanation he gives for leaving him in there.

    Nice play by Cano.

    • thebusiness

      “He’s been throwing the ball well for us”

    • Moshe Mandel

      He was getting outs. That’s the explanation. I would have taken him out, but it is not the kind of decision that he has to answer for or something.

  • Salty Buggah

    maybe we can put together a Sox-type rally

  • yankees=warriors

    Wonder what the reaction of the customers in the bar was when the ball was coming toward them?

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

      “Oh look, someone made a touchdown” is my guess, given the clientele.

      • V

        It’s actually pretty cool in there, and I don’t believe you have to pay to stand.

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

    Excluding tonight, Branyan hits a homer every 14.77 ABs.

  • handtius

    wow. LD makes a ridiculous play.

  • Chris B

    Robinson 1-2-3…

  • DGeezy

    damn lots of hate for michael kay on here every night. have you guys heard other team’s play by play announcers?? theyre a combination of boring, mostly ignorant about the rest of the league & show little to no energy in calling the other team’s home runs…so little that if you were just listening to the game, you wouldnt even know the opposing team homered. i agree kay his flaws like calling every ball hit to the OF ‘hit deep’ but it could seriously be MUCH WORSE.

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

      I agree with this. Kay is crappy but a lot of teams have just simply AWFUL announcers who are way more homer-inclined/stupid than Kay.

      • BigBlueAL

        Yup. Having the package is probably the reason why I actually really like the YES announcers because I get to hear most of the crappy announcer around the country.

        • Bob Stone

          I had the baseball package for two years while living in the Boston area. I agree completely. I was appalled at how terrible some of these other local/regional broadcasters were/are.

      • handtius

        Agreed, I heard a Braves broadcast over a stream, while in Paris. They are so homer happy it’s ridiculous. The Yankees hit a homerun and one of them said “oh darn”.

    • Drew

      I hate Kay… about 140 games per year, I’d rather someone else. I have heard some other announcers, what I feel about them holds little weight because, well, I don’t listen to them 140 per season.

    • V

      I just prefer Singleton 100x more than Kay.

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

        Singleton + Cone + Lorenz

        • V

          +1000.

        • The Fallen Phoenix

          That would be an absolutely fantastic booth.

  • BklynJT

    Wonder if MSM will bring up our bullpen tomorrow

  • BigBlueAL

    Thats why Marte getting healthy and coming back would be a great bonus. A 2nd lefty wouldve been perfect tonight so Aceves didnt have to pitch the 9th with Ichiro and Branyan leading off the inning.

    • Chris B

      Aceves didn’t have to pitch the 9th anyway tonight…

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

    Are we going to get a little Hinske action tonight?

    • Teix is the Man

      That sounds dirty

    • Salty Buggah

      let’s hope so

    • BigBlueAL

      I would assume with 4 afternoon games in a row coming up he would start at least one of them probably at 3b no???? Or at the least to give Damon or Swisher a day off.

    • Drew

      I see Hinske but read Heffer. And yes, heffer action will be in full effect in a couple of hours.

  • dkidd

    great at-bat

  • Teix is the Man

    This um is terrible…and water’s wet

  • Teix is the Man

    This um is terrible…and water’s wet

    come on swish. keep the line moving

  • Chris B

    Girardi is praying they don’t end up scoring just 2 runs.

    Keep it rollin’, Hideki.

    He probably walks if not for that horrid strike 2 call.

  • Drew

    great AB by Dekster. Let’s get em now.

  • V

    Damnit.

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

    Jorge is due for some bad assery here. Do it, Posada. Do it.

  • Salty Buggah

    I shouldn’t blame the ump but that should have been bases loaded and no outs. Jerry Meals has sucked a lot before for us too.

    • handtius

      He’s a redsox fan.

    • V

      He has no business as a major league umpire. Send him to the independent leagues.

    game over. cc lost them the game.

    Fucking umpire. What a fucking joke.

  • Salty Buggah

    Alrighty then

  • Drew

    Thank Mo for alcohol. That was not the ending I was hoping for.

  • Moshe Mandel

    This team has no heart. They just cannot come through in the big spot. Where are the gritty grinders, pray tell? The Ecksteins, the Erstads, the Pierres?

    • BigBlueAL

      Dont forget Alex Cora.

  • Riddering

    Cervelli would have made that a five hit AB.

    • Riddering

    Being only 3 games back of the Sox despite losing 8 games to them this year should be accomplishment.
