    I hope he’s alright. He was kinda good today beside the last inning.

    Now, can we PUHLEASE score some runs!

    • Bob Stone

      Always tough to do against Hallady – but I’m keeping my fingers crossed

  • http://forums.projectcovo.com/images/smilies/e6omir.gif OmgZombies!

    I’ve seen it all. People are actually defending someone with a 10 ERA.

    • Zach

      were people defending Alex when he was hitting .212? Thats what you do when you talk about someone who has a track record

      • http://forums.projectcovo.com/images/smilies/e6omir.gif OmgZombies!

        He still had a very good OBP despite his low average and we didnt have a younger more capable player waiting.

        • Zach

          right, you pick out one thing in ARod’s game that was good and focused on it. He couldnt hit an inside pitcher, outside pitch, or pitch down the middle. THat’s not difference then looking at Wang and seeing improvement from where he was and wanting to give him more then 3 starts before saying cut/trade him

          • Arman Tamzarian

            His defense was stunning as well

          • http://forums.projectcovo.com/images/smilies/e6omir.gif OmgZombies!

            The difference was Arod had a 1.000 OPS for a while when he came back despite the low average. He slumped for a while and is getting back to form. Dont compare Arods track record to Wangs, thats down right silly. Wang has not showed a dominant start that we seen from previous years.

    • Arman Tamzarian

      I think people are defending an asset that had a ton of value at one point and hoping it reestablishes it’s value for the Yankees or for a trade

      • Lanny

        What do you expect here? The Wang apologists will stop at nothing to defend him. The excuses are plentiful. The facts are the facts. The teams record when he pitches is terrible.

        • handtius

          facts are facts, you only show up when the yankees are losing.

        • Zach

          since hes been back the team is 2-3 in his starts. 1 game they got shut out and one game they scored 2 runs

  • A.D.

    Bruney warming, like the idea.

  • gxpanos

    Just got home. How was Wanger’s stuff today?

    Sucks about the injury. Maybe Hughes will get some extended time in the rotation.

    • Zach

      Hughes cant be ready to start in 4 games. I think Aceves will get the spot start, go 3-4, Hughes comes in and goes 2-3, and then piece it together from there

      • Tony

        Making his current “role” even more intelligent!

      • Dela G

        man that really sucks about the injury :/

        • Lanny

          Just bring up a starter from AAA and leave the pen alone. Why break up a good thing? Isn’t that why you have AAA starters?

          • handtius

            Hughes is the 6 starter. Why bother understand anything.

          • Zach

            what starter would you like to bring up Lanny?

            • Arman Tamzarian

              Josh Towers is a born winner!

  • Bob Stone

    Go Melky!!!

  • Dorian

    Gardner pop-ups really grind my gears

    • Dela G

      the way he swings, i’m not shocked that he pops up a lot

  • CP3

    Wang got a midsection injury on mlb.com

    • Salty Buggah

      how can you hurt yourself “there” on MLB.com? Maybe he got hurt on Matsui’s website.

      • Bob Stone

        IETC – I was thinking exactly the same thought

    • Lanny

      And Bruney is about to put this game out of reach.

      Can’t expect more from a Wang start knowing that you will need 7+ runs to be in the game.

      • Zach

        yup, Wang gives up 6 runs every time he goes out there

      • Jake K.

        Wang gave up four runs, not six.

  • Dela G

    well bruney lets the hit parade going

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

    Bruney’s giving up rockets of late. Whenever he starts to go on a little roll, he gets hurt.

  • A.D.

    Bruney’s back to throwing when he was fat

  • Tony

    Maybe I won’t have to watch Wang rehab in the majors anymore.

    • Lanny

      You don’t like seeing a team punt every 5th day while a guy with a 10 ERA starts???

  • Dela G

    lol at walking ADAM LIND. I don’t care if he’s on fire, pitch to the damn guy

    • whozat

      Well, that’s stupid. Why would you do that?

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

    No good can come from this intentional walk. Rolen’s en fuego.

    Of course it won’t matter, Bruney will probably walk him because guys always struggle to throw strikes after IBBing someone.

    • Dela G

      well somehow he got rolen out fast

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    Again, Wang’s last three starts before this one:

    v WSN: 5.0, 3R, 4SO, 2BB, 12:2 GB:FB, 91 PI.
    @ ATL: 5.0, 3R, 4SO, 1BB, 7:7 GB:FB, 62 PI.
    @ NYM: 5.1, 2R, 3SO, 3BB, 13:3 GB:FB, 85 PI.

    Adding today’s:

    v TOR: 5.1, 4R, 1SO, 1BB, 11:6 GB:FB, 66 PI.

    That’s not a 10 ERA. That’s 12 R in 20.2 IP, which comes out to a 5.34 ERA. Sure, it’s not pretty, but that’s about what you’d want a 4th starter to provide. And considering at least one outing was cut short by an injury (which may or may not have contributed to two runs), and another was shortened by the NL, his numbers should probably look a little better than that.

    Wang was rushed back from an injury that was not properly treated by the Yankees, and roster rules (with a dash of panic over the Joba line drive) prevented his rehabbing it fully in the minors and instructional leagues, as he should have. That’s another thing to take into consideration. It’s not that Wang has been bad because of brute ineffectiveness – he has been bad because it doesn’t seem like he’s come all the way back from last year’s injury.

    This does not excuse his performance, not by any means. And in an ideal world, yes, you have Wang work out his injury problems somewhere that isn’t the majors. But since we’re not in an ideal world, you live with what you have, and that’s a 5th starter in a rotation that’s already stacked with two potential 1st starters, and a 3rd who is currently pitching like a 2nd or 3rd starter with 1st starter potential. You can more than get by with that when you have the top offense in the league.

  • Lanny

    At least the Bruney 8th inning stuff is now over.

    • Salty Buggah

      you are so damn negative! Where were you when we were winning?

  • Riddering

    If Bruney gets out of this inning without giving up 1-2 runs I will personally attach a pornstache to my face for the weekend.

      Why would the Rockies trade him to us? Everything I’ve read suggest they are actually looking for 2 bullpen arms for a playoff run, trading their closer and best bullpen arms does not make sense at all. They would really have to fall on their face this month for this to have any chance.

  • Cokie

    What is a “shoulder strain” anyway? My understanding is that muscles “strain” and ligamets can be sprained or torn. A shoulder strain then could actually mean a deltoid muscle strain, which is minor and does not involve structural damage to the shoulder joint. Of course, it could also mean that whoever reported the injury has no clue.

    • Zach

      He has more then just a regular sore shoulder obviously, they obviously wont know until the MRI.

    • zs190

      I think strain is just the general statement for when the shoulder doesn’t feel right, that’s why they are taking a MRI to check it out. It could be a mild muscle strain or it could be something much more serious, we don’t know yet.

  • Bob Stone

    If the game is still tied at the top of the ninth I hope they bring back Phil instead of going to Mo.

    Lets say Wang goes on DL, would the yanks take Hughes out of the BP and put him in the rotation?

    for all the #’s folks, which I am not, wouldn’t Cano’s, I guess, clutchiness or hitting with runners on from the 5th spot, even out at some point?

    • Little Bill

      It will because of variance. Players always go through hot and cold streaks. Yankee fans should know that from watching Cano over the past 2 years. But some people just insist on overreacting to every bad stretch. Just look at the people declaring the Yankees dead after a mini slump in June.

  • Little Bill

    Looks like the “CANO CAN’T HIT 5TH AND HE’S NOT CLUTCH!” debate has replaced “JOBA TO THE BULLPEN” “POSADA CAN’T CALL A GAME AND CERVELI SHOULD START!” AND “A-ROD IS FINISHED!” as the new flavor of the week. I can’t wait until Robbie turns hot and his bad streak corrects itself. It always does.

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Once Cano recovers, what’s the next debate? I’m looking at Phil Hughes is a bust when he struggles to put together good starts initially.

  • Dorian

    So what we gon do? Is it a good problem to have the best option for the bullpen and the Starting Rotation be the same guy?

    • Little Bill

      Why not bring in your best pitcher in a tie game at home?

      • dygg

        because you also have the option of keeping your lights out 8th inning guy in the game.

      • Bob Stone

        I think the stats support this . . but Mo just ins’t as effective in tie games

        • Zach

      Josh Towers to start!!!!!

  • TJ

    Boston still tied 2-2 top 9 Seattle with 2 on one out

  • gxpanos

    Man. Blue Jay hitters are friggin’ pesky. They can put together some at bats when they want to.

  • A.D.

    whats with all the damn foul balls

  • Dela G

    arg strike him out!

  • Little Bill

    You guys saying Mariano shouldn’t be pitching do realize that it’s impossible for Mo to get the save in this game, right? If the game goes to 14 innings and your only options are Tomko and Mariano, you use Tomko? Yeah, cuz Mariano can’t pitch in tie games. We’ll just leave our best bullpen pitcher and the greatest closer ever on the bench because he can’t pitch in this game, it’s tied!

    • dygg

      Actually, that’s not what people are saying. Read the comments above.

    • Bob Stone

      My thinking is that a win isn’t guaranteed by the Yanks in the bottom of the ninth. Hughes is pitching well. Phil pitches the 9th and then you STILL have Mo for the 10th and 11th if need be.

    • gxpanos

      I think a better argument is that Hughes has been so good, that you can probably get away with using him in the ninth. That lets you go to Mo in the 10th.

      Obviously, I’m not complaining about the move, especially with the top of the order coming up. I certainly dont think Mo should never pitch unless it’s a save situation. I think it’s still a reasonable debate though. Philly probably would have pitched a scoreless ninth.

  • Bob Stone

    Nice DP!!!

  • Dela G

    holy sheet double play!

  • Stephen

    Mo sucks in tie games, period, always.

    /sarcasm

    • Bob Stone

      Yeah – And the fact that Mo’s ERA is 2.5 times higher in tie games than save situations isn’t real? Sarcasm?

  • TJ

    Come on, get to ARODs walk-off

  • TJ

    Seattle has the bases loaded one out, top 9 tied 2-2

    • Zach

      With Saito pitching

      • Zach

        Woodward singles, 3-2 seattle winning

  • Dela G

    great job mo!

  • Jake

    Too bad Mo sucks in non save situations

  • http://twitter.com/JamalG Jamal G.

    Oh, look at that, Mariano Rivera pitched a scoreless inning in a tied game, who would’ve thunk it?

    • Little Bill

      You just can’t predict baseball.

  • Dorian

    M’s got em loaded in the 9th with 1 out. Woodward at the plate

  • Little Bill

    Mariano can’t pitch in tie games.

  • e mills

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

    WTF Steve McNair died?

    • Dela G

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

          whoa?? no news yet

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

          Nashville TV station reporting it as murder-suicide. Holy crap.

          • Dela G

            holy crap that is so tragic

        • Dela G

          interesting, i’m waiting for reuters/ap to confirm

    • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

      what??

      • Dorian

        I’ll wait on that one. That sounds a little fishy

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Where did you get that?

    • Jose
    • Ivan

      Shocking just shocking.

  • Quikksand

    Let’s GO JETER!

  • Dorian

    Great AB by DJ.

  • zs190

    Awesome at bat by Jetes.

  • Little Bill

    Great AB by Jeter. Now here comes the bunt.

  • Quikksand

    Jeter walks! Let’s go Johnny Damon!

  • Bob Stone

    Bases loaded with 1 out and the Mariners can’t bring in any more runs – AAAGH

  • Shdwrptr

    I think you hit Damon here

  • http://twitter.com/JamalG Jamal G.

    I love the non-bunt call, gimmie all the outs I can use.

  • Quikksand

    Damon k’s.

  • Ivan

    Iight, Tex it would be a good time for a that homer ur waiting for.

  • Dorian

    2 down in the 9th lets go Aardsma

  • dygg

    send the runner?

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

      Hells yeah.

    • Little Bill

      It would be hilarious if the correction process started with this AB by Cano. I would quote everybody above for the next week!

  • Arman Tamzarian
    • Jose

      What was he thinking?

  • Bob Stone

    BoSox Lose!! Yeah!

  • Dorian

    FUCK YEA WE WIN AND WE WUD BE ONE GM OUT

    • CP3

      even more amazing since we did lose 8 games against the redsox. just shows you where we could be if we won some games against the sox.

      • Bob Stone

        Very frustrating – But coulda, shoulda, woulda doesn’t count

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

    Great, now they’re going to walk A-Rod to get to Cano.

    • Dorian

      And they are bringing in the lefty. That is a very good thing for Robby. He focuses a lot more on staying through the ball and going the other way.

  • Bob Stone

    Pinch hit for Cano

  • zs190

    This would be a good time for Robbie to prove the naysayers wrong.

  • Ivan

    iight lets go Cano.

  • charlespoet

    Not sure this is the guy I want up with RISP.

  • A.D.

    Cano, a chance for redemption

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

    Today, we spell redemption C-A-N-O.

  • CP3

    I would love a cano walk off almost as much as an A-rod walk off

  • Little Bill

    If Cano comes through here, all hell will break loose.

  • http://twitter.com/JamalG Jamal G.

    Damn, was hoping B(S)J Ryan would come in.

  • dygg

    Cano swings at the first pitch. True or False?

    • Shdwrptr

      True

    • Andrew

      True

    • Bob Stone

      False

      • dygg

        Bob wins

    • Bob Stone

      What’s my prize?

      • dygg

        hopefully, a Yankees win

  • Bob Stone

    Robbie – Do Something

  • CP3

    Isn’t cano domini(cano).

  • Bob Stone

    Just swung at ball 3

  • e mills

    I wish Leche was up

  • charlespoet

    Hit please.

  • MattG

    I nominate Swisher for the #5 spot.

  • Andrew

    Damnit Cano!

  • Dela G

    wow cano cannot catch a break at the plate with RISP
