And Swisher’s useless.

Categories : Game Threads


  1. NO Halladay says:

    Boston still losing?

  2. Joe R says:

    Surprised Melky didnt head dive for first.

  3. Accent Shallow says:

    That was a pleasant surprise — nice baserunning from Swisher.

  4. Joebrah says:

    Pretty good stuff there.

    And how many times is Melky going to make an impact late this season?

    God, I luff him.

  5. Jersey says:

    Swisher isn’t even an everyday player.

  6. Accent Shallow says:

    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.

  7. Little Bill says:

    Melky always comes through in the clutch. Those infield singles are a sight to behold. Jeter could learn something from that kid.

  8. What’s the on-field delay?

  9. NO Halladay says:

    I like this team alot, no Halladay needed to win this year

    • Little Bill says:

      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.

  10. Accent Shallow says:

    A balk with no runners on? Don’t see that every day.

  11. Drew says:

    Mexican Gangster is not sneaky.

  12. Mike Axisa says:

    That was a nasty change.

  13. Jersey says:

    Three up, three down for Boston in the 8th.

  14. Accent Shallow says:

    Aceves is a good pitcher.

    Think Coke is “break glass in case of emergency”, or if Mo isn’t feeling well?

  15. Mike Axisa says:

    Ah shit. Thank Mo for insurance runs.

  16. Evan says:

    I thought Damon had room but it just kept on carrying.

  17. SouthernYankeeFan says:


  18. Drew says:

    Mo please.

  19. Zach says:

    strike Cabrera out, give up HR to Thames. baseball’s funny

  20. Ivan says:

    That run Melky drove in looms just a lil bit larger.

  21. NO Halladay says:

    Pitch to him, that’s OK, better than a walk, Melky lookd even better now.

  22. Mike Axisa says:

    How the hell does Marcus Thames have 98 career homers?

  23. NO Halladay says:

    That means a shot of Tequilla for me as punishment!

  24. Crab Dribble Ointment says:

    Is it just me, or was there a time when Verlander was available?

  25. Ivan says:

    K’s Cabrera and Magglio but gives a homer to Thames.

  26. Little Bill says:

    Ace got him! Mo for the 9th to lock it down.

  27. MikeD says:

    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.

  28. Zach says:


    incase you didnt know, Boston’s depth is unmatchable and their rotation is sooo good

  29. NO Halladay says:

    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?

  30. Some insurance would be nice.

  31. Ivan says:

    When is Verlander a FA?

  32. Salty Buggah says:

    Let’s go Mo

  33. NO Halladay says:

    Enter Sandman is pumping at home!

  34. Zach says:

    could you imagine batting with 2 strikes against Mo? its just like- fuck

  35. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    I love the Mo zone!

  36. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Signature play.

  37. Salty Buggah says:

    Check out Jeter

  38. Zach says:

    but his range! and his arm!

  39. Joebrah says:


    Jeter sucks.

    Zero range.

  40. NO Halladay says:

    Good night!

  41. Ivan says:

    Mo has 3 BB this year. 3. Just 3.

    That’s MLB The Show video game #’s.

  42. Accent Shallow says:

    Yay Mo! Yay win!

  43. Zach says:

    this was one of the best wins of the season IMO

  44. Ivan says:

    Yanks win and now are only 2 games back.

  45. Jake H says:

    Good win against a very good pitcher who was dealling.

  46. Salty Buggah says:


  47. Riddering says:

    We won the series but you know the “Yanks can’t win against division leaders” meme will live on.

    • Crab Dribble Ointment says:

      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.

      • Riddering says:

        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.

  48. Marc says:

    CC “Gritmonster” Sabathia

    Kim… “How gritty was he?!?!?@!#!@#@!”

  49. Salty Buggah says:

    CC, a black dude, gritty?

  50. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Boston trade Penny to Texas for Smoak and Andrus.

  51. MikeD says:

    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.

  52. Jersey says:

    Ballgame over in Toronto, Jays win 6-2.

  53. Ivan says:

    I wonder who gets the championship belt this game? Gotta be CC right?

  54. Andrew says:

    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.
