And Swisher’s useless.
Boston still losing?
2-6 top 8.
Boston is, in fact, still a venture capital hotbed
Funny Mike, thnaks for the laugh. Have a cold one for me would ya!
Surprised Melky didnt head dive for first.
It wasn’t funny the first time.
Wasn’t a joke. Nice try tho.
That was a pleasant surprise — nice baserunning from Swisher.
Pretty good stuff there.
And how many times is Melky going to make an impact late this season?
God, I luff him.
Swisher isn’t even an everyday player.
Do you think there are comments on some Tigers blog about how Verlander isn’t an ace since he coughed up 2 runs? Because there would be posts here suggesting that if the roles were reversed.
Trade him to us for Wang
Oh god. If Cashman could pull that off, I’d name my firstborn after him.
first name brian or cashman?
Both. First name would just be “Brian Cashman.”
You’d name your kid Wang? You know the ramifications that could produce?
he didnt limit the damage when his team needed him to step up
Your question is based on the assumption that Detroit has literate fans.
Melky always comes through in the clutch. Those infield singles are a sight to behold. Jeter could learn something from that kid.
Damn that Jeter for always making solid contact.
What’s the on-field delay?
Leyland was crying about something.
Aceves needed the mound reworked cause of CC’s landing spot.
Tigers fans chasing pigeons
Sabathia keeled over and left holding his left shoulder.
I keed, I keed. They’re working on the mound.
The groundscrew was manicuring the mound.
Leyland didn’t think Ace was good enough for Verlander’s landing spot.
I like this team alot, no Halladay needed to win this year
I agree! There’s no need to deplete the minor leaguge prospects. Critics will argue that CC is not an ace and that they have a bad record vs. 1st place teams, mostly due to their record vs. the Red Sox.
A balk with no runners on? Don’t see that every day.
That was a ball call for Aceves going to his mouth while on the mound.
Gave him a ball for putting his hand to his mouth.
he licked his hand. then tried to act like he whiped his face
Mexican Gangster is not sneaky.
That was a nasty change.
Three up, three down for Boston in the 8th.
they’re packing it in. how could tito let his team do that?
Aceves is a good pitcher.
Think Coke is “break glass in case of emergency”, or if Mo isn’t feeling well?
Ah shit. Thank Mo for insurance runs.
I thought Damon had room but it just kept on carrying.
strike Cabrera out, give up HR to Thames. baseball’s funny
That run Melky drove in looms just a lil bit larger.
Pitch to him, that’s OK, better than a walk, Melky lookd even better now.
How the hell does Marcus Thames have 98 career homers?
I know right.
When I heard that I was like whaaat.
Trivia: his full name is “Marcus Markley Thames”
That means a shot of Tequilla for me as punishment!
Is it just me, or was there a time when Verlander was available?
I thought so. After his 11-17 year I could have sworn there were rumblings the Tigers were open to moving him.
Yes. During the first two picks in the 2004 draft.
ah Matt Bush. imagine Verlander in the NL and in PETCO?
although SD wasnt going to pay Verlander anyways right?
Bush and Verlander both got $3.15M. Exact same bonus.
ok nevermind, SD messed up pretty bad then
K’s Cabrera and Magglio but gives a homer to Thames.
Ace got him! Mo for the 9th to lock it down.
What’s the deal with the radar guy today? Probably the worst I’ve seen all season. Two breaking balls from Aceves clocked at 91 mph. His fastball doesn’t hit 91! CC was clocked with a 97 mph curveball earlier, and a 96 mph change-up. Obviously the radar gun is broke. It’s understandable if the broadcast crew doesn’t want to highlight it’s broke, but it’s a bit ridiculous for them to have been talking about how hard Verlander was throwing, hitting 100 mph, when it’s obvious he wasn’t.
The YES gun is a joke, but Gameday had that alleged 100 mph pitch from Verlander as 99.4.
For some reason, the YES gun thinks everything is a fastball.
The gun was decent for a while and now it’s back to being total crap.
It did have a good 1 or 2 month run.
incase you didnt know, Boston’s depth is unmatchable and their rotation is sooo good
Then why are they only 2 games ahead of us? If we would have beat them at a .500 (which could have happened) we would be in the lead.
If they went 2-6 instead of 0-8 they’d be a game in front right now.
BBTN talked about the same thing. I gotten use to it by now.
You would of thought they had a an army of good pitchers, 100’s of thousands of them.
ESPN is so in bed with the chowds, make me sick!
I know, last night they were counting Dice-K towards their depth. Did anyone bother to see how he’s pitched this year?
dont forget Masterson
What got me mad was when they showed Bard k’ing guys and mking Buchholz performance seem incredible (when it was just avg) but didn’t give Hughes air time with his tremendous performance.
When was the last time the yanks traded a good prospect? Last year when they traded for Nady? Tabata that turned out to be ok?
Tabata, but his stock was dropping. Before that … Dioner Navarro?
Are you saying the ship has sailed on Tabata?
Is he in AA now?
He’s been in AA for a year and a half.
And he’s still young for the league.
True I know. I hope it ends up that it was a good deal for us but it’s about 4 or 5 years too soon to make that call.
We can always swipe him back when he’s a Free Agent
Some insurance would be nice.
When is Verlander a FA?
After 2011 I believe. Detroit will sign him before that.
Let’s go Mo
Enter Sandman is pumping at home!
could you imagine batting with 2 strikes against Mo? its just like- fuck
I love the Mo zone!
Check out Jeter
but his range! and his arm!
Mo has 3 BB this year. 3. Just 3.
That’s MLB The Show video game #’s.
And one of those walks was intentional.
Insane. Absolutely insane.
I’d forgotten about that!
Mo has just been nasty.
Yay Mo! Yay win!
this was one of the best wins of the season IMO
Yanks win and now are only 2 games back.
Good win against a very good pitcher who was dealling.
We won the series but you know the “Yanks can’t win against division leaders” meme will live on.
Is it a meme when it’s pretty damn true up to this point?
I’m not saying the mass panic was warranted, but 2-8 coming into this series isn’t impressive any way you spin it.
I think it is when people disregard series we won against teams that led the division when we played them.
It’s not absolute nonsense like some criticisms but it’s a huge talking point for Yankee haters and a life-raft for masochistic fans. I mean, when even my local West MI paper has a blurb on Yankees being “destroyed” by division leaders I have to start rolling my eyes.
CC “Gritmonster” Sabathia
Kim… “How gritty was he?!?!?@!#!@#@!”
CC, a black dude, gritty?
Hard to believe yeah.
Boston trade Penny to Texas for Smoak and Andrus.
I mean I cant be surprised. They’ve got like 55272 Aces waiting. And that’s all they get?
No. Actually it was Penny to the Cardinals for Pujols and Rasmus.
Boston was robbed.
Texas has to throw in Feliz too, and take back Lugo because they need a SS
Is the Yankee-Red Sox head-to-head record masking that the Red Sox are not as good as some people think?
Here’s the Yankees and Red Sox records against the rest of the AL:
Yankees 43-21 .671 —
Red Sox 36-28 .562 7 games back
It’s obvious is the Yankees did their job when playing the Sox, they’d be ahead by a pretty good margin.
Ballgame over in Toronto, Jays win 6-2.
I wonder who gets the championship belt this game? Gotta be CC right?
ARod a close second
No. It’s gotta be Melky Cabrera for that clutch infield single.
Must have had to wait a while to use that “Swisher is useless” mock. Guy has been straight bad since late April, no doubt about it.
No doubt, eh?
