    Help me out here–Joba’s got 95 MPH heat, and an awesome slider. He’s facing a lineup who’s best hitter is a washed-up Bobby Abreu. And he had a three run lead before throwing a pitch.

    So how has he thrown 52 pitches in 3 innings?

      Joba starter. He has had sustained success as a major league starter. While Hughes hasn’t been given as much of a chance, he hasn’t. Luckily it won’t come down to that, and we’ll see them both in the rotation for years to come.

          • Zach

            yes, and this has been point of discussion 10x for each game. YES’s gun is messed up, pay attention to gameday for velocity

        • Drew

          Yepp, and we have the second best in baseball.

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

          It is.

          We’re not complaining that people want Peña over Ransom.

          We’re complaining that people are complaining about it so repeatedly and so incessantly and so vehemently.

      • charlespoet

        Your right, it doesn’t matter for a 25th man, just a matter of preference. In the long run neither will matter in long term plans other than a bench role or trade inclusion.

  • V

    Strike 1 was a ball. Foul ball was the same pitch. Can’t fault him for a bad umpire in that AB.

  • J

    not only can’t ransom hit off speed pitches, breaking pitches… he can’t hit 90 mph fastballs down the middle.

    please… DFA THIS GUY.

  • Yankee1010

    Really, Cody? He seems like a great guy, but how much longer is the rope? It would be one thing if he was even fielding decently, but he’s been a butcher in the field too.

    • Steve H

      Grudzielanek anyone?

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

        That ship has sailed.

  • Dela G

    OMG please DFA this guy!

  • Ivan

    Look, Cody Ransom is not good baseball player but gettin all hot heated that he’s struggling is quite petty.

    • Tank the Frank

      Personally I don’t care so much that he’s struggling but I don’t like how much playing time he’s getting. Did Jeter REEEEAAALLY need to DH tonight? Give me a break. That’s on Joe.

      • Zach

        So Jeter is never getting a day off now?

      • Drew

        lol why shouldn’t he DH?

        • Tank the Frank

          Why should he? I think Jeter’s been known to play some games from time to time.

          You all want to give players their days off (or half days) the series before the All Star break and get more looks at Cody Ransom…well more power to you.

          • Drew

            You do know Derek Jeter is in the all star game, right?

            • Tank the Frank

              Ok I get it. You want Jeter to DH tonight and get his rest in so he can play 4 innings in 4 days because the All Star game is more important than putting the best team on the field. We’re making excuses for Cody Ransom to play now. I misunderstood.

              Jeter doesn’t need to – and shouldn’t – be DHing tonight. There’s a period after that sentence.

              • Drew

                True, he shouldn’t get any half days off, after all, he is the most overpaid player in baseball. Note: Period at the end of that sentence.

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

        Did Jeter REEEEAAALLY need to DH tonight?

        Yes.

        • Tank the Frank

          I’m sorry the answer we were looking for is no. No.

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

            Players need rest. This is an immutable law of baseball.

  • Tank the Frank

    I hate dinky BS hits.

  • charlespoet

    Jeter would have dove in his Supersuit can caught that.

    • Dela G

      while banging jessica alba

      • charlespoet

        Nice call.

  • dkidd

    it’s 5-1. who cares if he steals?

    • Zach

      because you dont give away bases, 4 run lead with 5 innings to go

      • dkidd

        not saying you give it away, just concentrate on the batter. joba starts slowing down, bad things happen

        • Zach

          pitching with runners on base and varying his timing is something he needs to learn/work on to continue to grow as a pitcher

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    I’ve noticed if Jeter was at SS now, he could have prevented like 3 hits..

    • Steve H

      2009 Jeter?

  • cjc

    out another great call

    • Yankee1010

      The throw beat him too. The tag did too, but the tag is immaterial.

  • Dela G

    figgins was effing out

  • John Duci

    He was out. Nice throw Molina.

  • http://www.espn.com Marty Foster

    Guys, trust me, he was safe. The ball beat him before he got to 2nd base

    • John Duci

      what?

      • Dela G

        oh man you gotta go back to toronto games to get that one

    • cjc

      lol

    • Tank the Frank

      Well done sir.

    • Steve H

      IETC.

  • Ivan

    You know whats great since Kay is not doing a game while the angels are playing.

    I don’t have to hear him say “Hey who does Figgins look like?” “He looks like Wille Randolph”

    We get it Kay. You say it every year.

  • Tank the Frank

    Someone needs to tell Flash not to drink the YES gun Koolaid.

  • Drew

    Umpires are shitty. I hate them.

  • J

    alright joba… get it together

  • http://www.espn.com Marty Foster

    god i hate bobby abreu

  • MattG

    Shockingly, the Angels’ guys didn’t notice Figgins was out.

  • Dela G

    great stop by molina

  • Ivan

    Chamberlain is makin Rivera his bitch wit them sliders.

    • Dela G

      that guy is fooled like a loon!

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Why are the infielders not getting these groundballs? I’m using gamday so I don’t know how hard they’re being hit, but SERIOUSLY.

    • Dela G

      its cody ransom

      he sucks

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

    Bobby Abreu is still surprisingly fast.

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

    Come on, Joba. GEt through this inning.

  • Dela G

    damn it!

    bobby abreu seems to be the ultimate “zero stat” guy, however. 50 runs and 50 walks?

    and the angels aren’t even that great…

  • marc resnick

    when was the last time joab got a swing and miss on a fastball… but ya. gameday must always be right…

  • Ivan

    Joba got away with a hanger.

  • charlespoet

    So how do you get Joba to stop waisting so many pitches. 88 through 4 2/3

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

      Patience.

    • charlespoet

      sorry 89 4 1/3

      • pat

        You spelled wasting wrong too.

    • cjc

      AAA

    • Little Bill

      Umpires make the right calls at 2nd and Alex make good throws to 1st.

  • Dela G

    oh damn a-rod

    shit

  • Reggie C.

    Joba is imploding here.

    • Zach

      imploding as in getting a ground ball directly hit to your 3B?

  • cjc

    fuck

    • Yankee1010

      This looks like last Sunday.

      Maybe Joba learned something from Mussina about dealing with errors behind you.

  • Ivan

    Look on the bright side Joba, he hit a homer for ya.

  • dkidd

    poop

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

    FUCK.

  • Dela G

    oh my god

    we have a fucking tied game

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

    Terrible. Two four runs leads he’s blown in two starts.

    • cjc

      he falls apart after errors its sad

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

        That.

        Funny, as the inning was unfolding, I was thinking to myself, “What I wouldn’t give for Jorge Posada to jog out to the mound and tell him to calm the fuck down and keep focused on attacking the hitters”.

        Joba’s developed a nasty habit this year of letting errors, misplays, and bad calls screw with his focus to the subsequent hitters. You’ve gotta shake that shit off.

    • Dela G

      its sad mane

      smart move taking him out though

    • Ivan

      Hey maybe u had a rite to react in your post about Joba.

    • Little Bill

      He had help in blowing it again though. The 3rd basemen, whether it’s Alex or Cody has to make those throws. Figgins was also out at 2nd.

    • http://Archimboldi Joe Robbins

      Gosh, I hope Joba doesn’t say he thought he had good stuff and pitched pretty well. He did throw some good sliders to Rivera, though.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Our D sucks balls today.

  • pat

    fuck this bullshit.

    • King of Fruity Hypos

      Ok WTF happened? I get up for ice cream and…

  • J

    damn. new game.

  • charlespoet

    You could see that coming. So how do you not replace Joba with Hughes.

    • Zach

      Hughes has a 5.45 era as a starter this year, thats how

      • charlespoet

        Ahh because of one bad start. so this is better? The wonder kid who can’t make 5 innings. See Mike Axisa’s last post.

        Joba is not effective right now.

        • Zach

          no thats not true. take away his worst start, and his best start, and his era is still over 5

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

      Because micromanaging is bad.

      This was a bad outing by Joba. Overreacting won’t make it better. Only worse.

      • charlespoet

        Not over reacting I am just not convinced Joba is right. But what do I know. Stats tell EVERYTHING about a pitcher. the human eye knows nothing. So Eiland and Girardi will just look at the stats and say, “Ah, he is just fine. Right where he should be.”

    Bad choice there, Joba and Molina.

  • Jake

    The arousal is gone…

  • J

    okay what is seriously going wrong with joba?

    • V

      Having to get 4 outs?

  • John Duci

    Joba doesnt deserve to be pitching in the rotation right now

    • Zach

      why?
      and who takes his spot?

      • John Duci

        hughes

        • Zach

          Hughes has an ERA more then a run over Joba’s, so how does Hughes deserve it?

      • http://Archimboldi Joe Robbins

        Yes, let’s not panic. Joba isn’t coming out of the rotation. But let’s see him own up to his efforts when he’s interviewed.

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

          I honestly could not give a shit what he says when he’s interviewed.

          On field performance >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> off-field attitude

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

            Of course, but he needs to have a grasp on reality before he can make adjustments.

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

              What he says to the press is not a referendum on his grasp on reality.

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

      Maybe he doesn’t.

      He also doesn’t deserve to be pulled from the rotation, though.

      There’s a difference.

  • dkidd

    that escalated really quickly

  • Reggie C.

    Joba has imploded.

    AAA bound.

  • J

    fuck. the yankees should be batting if the ump got the call right and arod made the throw.

  • V

    this sucks so much

  • Drew

    Yay, Melancon.

  • pat

    yaay melancon

  • Frank

    It’s about time the Yanks seriously consider ending the Joba as a starter experiment.

    • Zach

      its about time Yankee fans have some patience with a 23year old pitcher

      • charlespoet

        Yep, that is it. He is only 23. No pitcher in the history of baseball has pitched well at 23.

        • Zach

          Theres alot more pitchers who have struggled at 23, than pitchers who dominate at 23

    • pat

      It’s not en experiment.

      To be fair, Hughes looked worse last season. Give the kid a break.

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

      And you know what? He’s right, he will.

      As he should.

  • Ace

    Joba Chamberlain’s 1st half grade = C-

    • Zach

      what were you realistic expectations for his first 17 starts this year? 10-3 3.31 era?

      • mustang

        no but not this

        • Zach

          then what was your expecatations? 8-5 with 4.00 era?

  • Ivan

    To be honest you gotta give the guy a chance in the rotation. Nevertheless, he’s really testing my patience in these games at times.

    As I said before he’s become a very boring pitcher.

  • Dela G

    damn melacon throwing 95!

  • mustang

    Joba pitching like this, No Wang, and Andy being Andy thats going to be one tired bullpen.

  • Moose

    ANOTHER horrible start by Joba!

    This bum is REGRESSING. Every start now seems worse than the previous one.

    Cashman better take notice and wake the fuck up with these Halladay rumblings. If he thinks he can win with CC, AJ and a prayer in October, he is sorely mistaken. Our 3,4,5 pitchers are a fuckin joke. Absolutely no faith, whatsoever, that any of those stooges could make it past the 5th inning in any start they throw.

    p.s. its games like this (where Joba gives up 5 runs, but only 2/3 earned b/c of errors) why his ERA is so misleading. Anyway who actually believes Joba is a legit 4.0 era pitcher is either kidding themselves or severely delusional.
