    Anyone else want that 5th spot? Cano doesn’t.

  • Little Bill

    TRADE DAMON! DFA TEX! AND SHOOT CANO!

  • Bob Stone

    I can’t wait for this Cano RISP slump to be finished

  • CP3

    cano is just being a good friend, he wants his bff cabrera to get the walkoff hit.

  • Lanny

    Cano does it again.

  • Jose

    We need Hinske to a have his Yankee moment in the bottom of the 10th.

    • Zach

      damn. thats real vague though- was it at his home? club? back alley?

    • dygg

      Holy cow!

    • Salty Buggah

      sad just sad

    • John Duci

      Is that real?

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

        Looks like it.

    • ARX

      …I’m hesitant to even react until I see it confirmed by a better source with more details…

      • Arman Tamzarian

        Its weird that espn or SI hasn’t picked up on it yet.

      • Zach

        a news station isnt a good source?

        • ARX

          Not saying that, just that a local news blurb with 2 sentences and hardly any details isnt evry thorough. Plus it still hasnt been picked up by major news/sports outlets….so it lets me hang on to the faint hope that it isn’t true :( I watched him play his whole career and he was one of my favorite players, hope to god its just mistaken identity.

          • Zach

            Nashville Police confirmed it

            • Mr.Jigginz

              ESPN got it on their site now too…Damn.

              • Zach

                ESPN said he was shot at his home

      • Zach

        http://twitter.com/BreakingNews

        Nashvilel Police confirm it

    • Little Bill

      There’s a link on that page to the live coverage. That channel is outside his house so this has got to be real.

    • Mr.Jigginz

      If this is accurate,then I’m just shocked.He was one of my favorite players in the league,during his time.

  • Shdwrptr

    I hate extra innings. I just want the Yankees to end this game with a walkoff. Is that too much to ask on the 4th of July?

  • Salty Buggah

    one hit by cano in any AB today and we win.

  • Bob Stone

    I’ve said it before and I will probably say it again. This Player of the Game decided in the 8th innning is just ridiculous. Just another way to get in another “during-the-live-action” commercial plug.

  • Ivan

    While Cano has struggled in RISP, some of it has to do wit luck though

  • John Duci

    How amazing would our team be if Wang was as good as he was in those 19 win seasons. Boy, we would be a tough team to beat.

    • Tom Zig

      In due time…possibly next year…except we’ll have a better Joba and Hughes

  • Tom Zig

    Quick! Let’s end this game before Tomko comes in!

  • Shdwrptr

    Ok. Get overbay out and have Hinske hit his first Yankee Stadium HR FTW

  • MattG

    I admire Girardi for not making knee-jerk moves based on SSS, but Cano hitting fifth was not wise to begin with. You do not want a lefty behind A-Rod–it makes the IBB too easy a call. Add to this the fact that Cano has one approach–swing at anything close–and you have a incredibly easy choice for a pitcher.

    Put Swisher there, and give them something to think about.

    • Zach

      What does a lefty behind ARod have to do with anything?

      • Arman Tamzarian

        What is SSS?

        • Zach

          small sample size i believe

          • Arman Tamzarian

            Ah, thank you

        • A.D.

          small sample size

          • Arman Tamzarian

            I’ve been seeing that lately, isn’t “small” redundant though?

            • Zach

              no sample size doesnet autoamtically mean small. it could be a huge sample size. small is an adjective, sample size is the object

              • Arman Tamzarian

                I stand corrected

              • Arman Tamzarian

                What the fuck was that?

    • Little Bill

      The IBB is an easy call anyway, unless you’re the Seattle Mariners. Posada being in the 5th spot isn’t going to scare people into pitching to A-Rod. Pitch to A-Rod or pitch to Posada. Hmmm, touch choice….

  • Bob Stone

    For all those people debating this before . . . wouldn’t it be a plus to have Mariano in now for the 10th and maybe 11th after Phil Hughes pitched the ninth?

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

      Well, yeah, but you can’t plan for a future that might never come.

      I think he should have left Hughes in for another inning, but there’s never a bad time to go to Mo.

      • dygg

        I agree. I think in today’s game, the argument is really more about Hughes than it is about Mo.

      • Bob Stone

        Mo is always a good bet. The ERA suggests that he’s not quite as good a bet in ties. It doesn’t make any sense, but it’s true that his ERA is about 2.5 times higher in ties than in saves. And, I think, but I’m not sure, it’s a pretty good sample size. I would have left in Hughes for the 9th. Mo for the 10th and maybe 11th. That leaves you Coke for the 13th and 14th. Let’s see how it plays out.

  • charlespoet

    How tough would this team be if they had a legit #5 RBI hitter?

    • MattG

      They have 2. They’re just not using either one.

      • charlespoet

        Posada – maybe. Who else?

  • A.D.

    Ahhh BG 3rd best UZR/150 in CF this year.

    • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

      feels good. Yanks haven’t had that in a while in CF.

      • Zach

        still has a shitty arm

        • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

          meh range >>>> arm and brett garnder’s arm > damon’s and bernie at the end of his career but yes it is pretty hard to watch him throw.

  • Ivan

    Good job Coke.

  • Riddering

    GARDNER.

    Fastest Outfielder Alive.

  • Quikksand

    Nice hustle, Brett!

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    It’s hot today. Melk is a good choice.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    It’s hot today. Melk is a good choice.

    • Quikksand

      Thank god. The new captain clutch!

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

    Melky’s due up third. Just get someone on for him, he’ll do the rest.

  • Quikksand

    Hip hip, Jorge! Posada to lead off the bottom of the 10th.

  • Salty Buggah

    ESPN – Noting the new problems the New York Yankees have had filling the high-priced seats at their new ballpark, Tiger Woods is boosting golf’s efforts to attract young fans to go see the game in person at the tournament he’s hosting this weekend.

    “We don’t want to have what happened at Yankee Stadium,” Woods said Friday at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., site of the AT&T National. “Tickets are so overpriced that you can’t bring the family. We want to have everyone come out and enjoy being in a family atmosphere, walk around, have a good time and not have it cost an arm and a leg.”

    this ticket prices thing is kinda overblown by the media so everyone misubderstands it a bit.

  • Dorian

    Posada guessing with 2 stikes highly upsets me.

  • Bob Stone

    Gardner’s defense saved a couple of runs today.

  • Shdwrptr

    Swisher!?!?!? Is Hinske dead or something?

    • Zach

      why would you pick Hinske over Swisher?

      • Shdwrptr

        Swisher has been god-awful lately. He’s hitting .236

        • Zach

          and Hinske has 5 at bats since July 26. and you want him up in the bottom of the 10th? come on this isnt even a discussion

        • http://deleted RollingWave

          using batting average to judge Swisher is always dumb.

      • dygg

        If only because he’s there. you need to get him some ABs.

        • Shdwrptr

          Give him at bats when the game isn’t on the line

    • dygg

      I thought the whole idea was to have a left-handed bat off the bench?

      • Zach

        was swisher not batting left?

        • Bob Stone

          Swish batted lefty

        • dygg

          He was. Sorry. I was unclear. I only meant to say, Hinske was traded for explicitly for situations like this. If you’re not going to use him, then why trade for him?

          • Zach

            He was traded for a bat off the bench, he wasnt traded to bat instead of Swisher

          • Shdwrptr

            Girardi- “Power hitting pinch hitters usually come in when the team needs a run in the late innings…right?…Nah, lets put in Swisher. I know he’s been in a slump for a month but who knows :-)”

            • Zach

              .254 average, .382 obp, .894 OPS in June is not a slump

  • Bob Stone

    Damn – No walk off for Melky today.

  • Quikksand

    Since when did getting hits become so hard Yankees???????

  • zs190

    This guy Camp has some pretty nice control, seems like every ball on Gameday is right around the edge of the strike zone.

  • charlespoet

    Aceves and who else is left in the pen? Have to think the odds for the Yankees winning drops now since Mo, Hughes, Bruney, are done.

    • e mills

      Probably have to save Ace for Joba’s start

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

      Aceves and Tomko are the only one’s left, and Aceves threw a ton what, three innings on Thursday?

    • Bob Stone

      Hate to say I told you so (actually – no I don’t). Hughes 9th, Mo 10th & 11th, if necessary Coke 12th & 13th.

      • Zach

        why not Hughes 8-9, Coke 10-11, Aceves 12-14 and Mo for the 15th??

        • dygg

          you left out Tomko

          • Zach

            saving him for the 16th, most important inning of the game

      • A.D.

        with the recent workload Mo wasn’t going 2 innings today

    • ARX

      As long as Coke gets past this inning, I still feel good with Aceves going into a possible 12th/13th. If we get past that…pray.

  • e mills

    I don’t like leaving COke in here

    • Salty Buggah

      8 pitches last inning

    • Zach

      why? he threw 10 pitches and been lights out lately

      • e mills

        just thinking about earlier in the season when he wasn’t really successful going more than an inning. So far so good though

        • Zach

          he has 1 ER in his last 5 appearances of 1+ IP

    • A.D.

      Coke >>>>>>>> Tomko

  • charlespoet

    What the hell was that pitching sequence?

  • Salty Buggah

    uh-oh cmon Cokey

  • Bob Stone

    Nice K Coke

  • Bob Stone

    Okay – Let’s win in the bottom of the 11th!!

    • zs190

      Hope so, this is probably it for Coke. I don’t want to see Tomko.

      • Bob Stone

        I second that thought

  • Salty Buggah

    nice Cokey, now let’s get him the win!

    If only Gardy could somehow get on

      lol, i like that, i dont think i ever heard that before

  • Little Bill

    Great job by Coke. We don’t have a 10th and 11th inning go so it’s surprising that he got through. God I hope we don’t go to the 12th because we have no 12th inning guy. It doesn’t matter who pitches that inning, he will fail because he doesn’t know how to pitch in the 12th inning.

  • Ivan

    Coke has really been good as of late.

  • A.D.

    Walk off inside the park?

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

      grilling and watching the game :)

        I’m watching on my computer which, unfortunately, is too far from the grill.

        One day, though, I will have a laptogrill and life will be awesome.

  • Soriano~40~40

    Plz no Tomko

  • Dela G

    man camp looked great

    girardi may look foolish for pulling hughes early now that we rest on tomko…

    • Zach

      yeah he should have planned for teh 12th inning better

      • Bob Stone

        Don’t leave out the 13th-16th either

      • e mills

        you love to criticize

        • Zach

          because the criticism makes no sense. tied game top of the 9th at home, you put your closer in.

          • e mills

            I think some people just like to make comments about how they feel in certain situation, myself included. BTW I appreciate you throwing me Coke’s recent #’s in 1+ IP

            • Zach

              yeah and Girardi is in a lose-lose situation for EVERY situation because people are always going to bitch

              and you’re welcome

      • Dela G

        yeah but if a guy throws 8 pitches in an inning, leave em in for the next.

        i am wishing tomko the best and hope he gets the win, but let mo pitch the extras (if needed). Give the guy the rest

    • Bob Stone

      I remember a commenter mentioning that way back in the 8th inning – Cough, Cough

      • Dela G

        i also mentioned this too :P

  • Ivan

    I would go to Aceves for just 1 inning knowing I have the 3-4-5 hitters coming.

    • zs190

      He pitched like 3 innings and threw like 30-35 pitches 2 days ago, I think Joe would really prefer to not use him.

  • YankeeJosh

    Rumor has it Eric Hinske is on this team. It cannot be confirmed at this time, however.

    • Zach

      Who was he suppose to bat for, and hes had 6 at bats since June 26th

      • YankeeJosh

        He should have batted for either Ransom or Gardner. Gardner’s been in a bad funk and Hinske has the pop to end the game.

        At some point the Manager has to get him into a game to keep him fresh and a viable option.

  • Shdwrptr

    This blows. They look great through the first 7 innings against Roy ^$^*%$#* Halladay and now they can’t even get a damn hit.

      Definitely – Outfield defense is why we are still playing in extra innings.

    Tomko can still throw, he should be pitching more, a good vet arm to have

  • Bob Stone

    Well Tomko sure did make it scary but I give him credit – He came through

  • Lanny

    Bunting Cano in the first place was simply wrong.

    • Zach

      because you use the logic that he’s “due” for a hit after 0-19 with RISP?

      • whozat

        No, because he’s shitty at bunting. Bunting on a pitch when Tex didn’t know it was happening was even worse.

        • Zach

          Tex didnt know- thats Cano’s fault?

  • Riddering

    JORGIE.

    Cano’s gotta pee on his hands for the rest of the season now.

    • Bob Stone

      LMAO

  • Ivan

    Posada Baby.

  • Salty Buggah

    POSADA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bail em out baby! He should be batting 5th and he is pretty clutch usually.

  • Bob C

    JOBA!!!!!!!!

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

    Posada’s going to kill Joba and AJ in the clubhouse.

    • Zach

      NO LAUGHING ON THE FIELD!!!

  • Salty Buggah

    does he get pied by AJ?

    • Bob Stone

      Done!!

  • DreDog

    Seriously, who is in the ‘pen besides Ace tomorrow?

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

      Robertson, Bruney.

    • zs190

      Robertson for sure, Tomko, you rest Mo tomorrow and use Hughes to close if needed.

      • zs190

        Actually, maybe not. I forgot we lost that game to the Mariners the other day and didn’t use Mo, so Mo should be available too.

        • whozat

          Mo’s pitched four of the last five days…I think you need to give him off tomorrow.

          And this was Hughes’ first back-to-back appearance. I dunno if they want to make this his first back-to-back-to-back as well. Especially if he needs to spot-start for Wang in five days.

          I think you have to make a quick call on Wang, DL him, call up Melancon or Alby to reinforce the pen, and decide if Aceves or Hughes is going to start in five days.

          • zs190

            I kind of doubt that unless it’s really obvious. We do have Ace, Bruney, Robertson and Tomko available for tomorrow. The bullpen pitched about 10 innings the last 2 days but it was spread out pretty well and was well rested before. I wouldn’t feel pressured to get another reliever up.

      • DreDog

        Hughes has to get ready to start for Wang, no?

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

          No, not necessarily. They need a starter Thursday, then they can regroup during the AS break. After Thursday, they won’t need a fifth starter until the 21st.

          Maybe they piece that Thursday start together with Aceves and Tomko, and call up an extra reliever.

        • zs190

          You know, the way they talked about Hughes(granted, their words seem to change all the time), it almost sounds like we are more likely to see Sergio Mitre than Phil Hughes start that game.

          • DreDog

            I could see that. I guess if Wang is going to take a little longer to heal, you get Hughes his innings, right?

            • zs190

              Oh yeah, if this is a long term thing, you stretch Hughes out like what Mariners did with Brandon Morrow. Like Mike said, all star break coming up, we don’t have to make this decision any time soon.

      • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

        nah Hughes has pitched 2 straight already for the first time.

      • Bob C

        probably not gonna use Hughes if Wang is gonna go to the DL, i’ll bet they move quickly to bring someone up though

  • zs190

    Our bullpen has just been awesome lately.

  • Riddering

    HAHAHAHA.

    A.J. is one sneaky bastard.

    • Bob Stone

      It was a great move. Almost as deceptive as his curve ball when he is on

  • Bob Stone

    WOW – I sort was mentally prepared for this game to be in the “automatic loss” column. We win against Halladay. Amazing. Baseball is definitely one sport that no one should ever bet on.

    • ARX

      I didnt even gte home til the 8th, and I was just hoping Wang would hold it close…got my wish, sorta.
      And BTW you shouldnt bet on ANY sport :) Just flush your money down the nearest toilet if you feel the need to get rid of it, its faster

  • e mills

    good game and can finally go out…have fun all!

  • Bob Stone

    Happy 4th Everyone. Enjoy it safely!

    At first I thought what a weak attempt by Joba but it was smoke and mirrors

  • pete

    none of this would have happened if joba were pitching the 7th and 8th for toronto

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

    Heh, if the Yanks had gone 8-0 against Boston, they’d have a 15-game lead. Boston has, but they only lead by one game. Yankees > Red Sox.

    • pete

      etc (enjoy this comment – directive form)

    • Ivan

      If the yanks win half those games, the yanks would lead the division.

    • ARX

      If we were just 3-5 against them, we’d be up by 5 games. Hopefully theyll continue to tread water against the rest of the league, then we can put them in our rear view by spanking them in August :)

    • YankeesFanInMI

      But Boston is 8-0 against the Yanks, so it’s still kind of tough to say that…

    • Dela G

      the yankees will be heard from in the second half against the red sox. I cannot wait for august so we can spank them like the little beetches they are

  • whozat

    So, what’d Joe say? “Someone missed something?” “Someone misunderstood something?”

    • Zach

      first answer: “someone missed something”
      follow up: “he misunderstood the plan [i believe thats the word he used]”

  • erik

    Cano’s worst game ever
    We Win
    now let’s find a fifth starter how good is mitre?

  • bart

    bunting is not stupid when you need 1 run to tie or win — it also may not be stupid to avoid dp with a guy who is having trouble picking a pitch to hit

    3-0 is a perfect place to look fo an easy to bunt 4-seamer — you can make an argument for looking at 3 more pitches – you can make an argument for turning cano lose an hit and run – again expecting a cookie

    but the guy has to execute — the yankees have lost several games in late innings with no outs buy failing to advance tying or winning run to 3rd – usually i blame this on Girardi’s in-gam tactics

    maybe it is also on the players – last night needing runs in that bases loaded situation neither ARod or Cano wer patient – a fky ball from either would have plated a run — the wild pitch saved big egg on face

    as to that pitcherr’d manager Giradi – there jave been many opportunities to give Phil future franchise multiple innings — Giradi has not done so — now needing Hughes back in His Slot — he will not be stetched and available — that’l be the excuse — and will get a spoot start from someone in AA or AAA

    Ihope the wanger experiment ends here – get him healthy and keep him for nest year when Andy retires but develop Hughes now
