    So close…I was kinda selfishly hoping we’d have a spillover game thread on a day a game isnt being played.

    But oh well, I guess having a game today is way more important for the team.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      If we don’t want Kei Igawa to have a chance to start then yes playing late should be worth it.

      • Salty Buggah says:

        Exactly that and having the pen in balance are the only reasons I’m happy a game is happening today.

    • TurnTwo says:

      there actually looks like a lot more fans stayed than i originally gave people credit for.

  2. gxpanos says:

    Man, just looked at Buerhle’s B-R for the first time. That dude is the Albert Pujols of innings-eaters.

  3. Salty Buggah says:

    I really hope we win today. I hate rain-delay losses like the the against Nats. Let’s hope our bats come alive, or at least are not sleeping, for CC for another win.

  4. The Artist says:

    Wow, a spillover thread with no game.

    This must be a record of some kind

  5. Dave Robertson looked like a freaking G.I. Joe next to CC.

  6. GG says:

    This seems foolish to me, all I’m going off of is weather.com for BX, and I bet the stadium has shit tailor made for them, but it seems to me like the tarp is almost certainly going to have to be rolled back out pretty soon after the start

  7. Mike Axisa says:

    Over/under 6.5 innings tonight?

    • Under. Yankees win in 5, CC gets a cheapie complete game!

      • Salty Buggah says:

        That would be so awesome if we win like that.

      • GG says:

        If he goes perfect through five, would that count???

        • JGS says:

          no, but he would probably get a footnote somewhere

          • Zach says:

            just like Pedro, threw 9 perfect innings, gives up double in 10th, doesnt count gets a special mention

            • Steve H says:

              Harvey Haddix had it a little worse than Pedro.

            • Salty Buggah says:

              This is worse (or better?):

              On May 26, 1959, Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitched one of the greatest games in baseball history. Haddix carried a perfect game through an unprecedented 12 innings against the Milwaukee Braves, only to have it ruined when an error by third baseman Don Hoak allowed Felix Mantilla, the leadoff batter in the bottom of the 13th inning, to reach base. A sacrifice by Eddie Matthews and an intentional walk to Hank Aaron followed; the next batter, Joe Adcock, hit a home run that became a double when he passed Aaron on the bases. Haddix, and the Pirates, had lost the game 1-0. This is seen as one of the most agonizing of all baseball defeats, especially as the Pirates had 12 hits in the game but could not bring a run home. The 12 perfect innings—36 consecutive batters retired in a single game—remains a record.

    • GG says:

      under, but I sure hope over

  8. Victoria says:

    this game is being played because this is an organization that hates its fans.

  9. Salty Buggah says:

    Those lucky A’s, this must feel like a normal home game to them.

  10. The Artist says:

    Remember the last long rain delay the Yanks had against the Nats? I do, I waited outside the stadium for 2 hours before giving up.

    Yanks TOTALLY mailed that one in. Coming off 19 of their last 24, think they’ll show up?

  11. NOMAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

  12. Chris B says:

    Nomar on a wet surface, how many innings till he pulls something?

  13. Ivan says:

    Give me a win yankees on my B-Day guys.

  14. Rich D. says:

    This is crazy… 2 hr. 43 minute rain delay. I miss those day/night double headers!

  15. Salty Buggah says:

    I hope CC is sharp today…and Mazzaro is not.

  16. Mike Axisa says:

    NOT WITH THE BAREHAND!

  17. Reggie C. says:

    Is the YES gun off tonight? Seems like it.

  18. Ryan S. says:

    I hope Eric Hinske hits a home run today and Sterling uses “Hinske with your best shot!”

    …I’m the one who made that up on LoHud, I’d get a free media guide out of it.

  19. Rich D. says:

    1-2-3 inning! Sharp and quick, JUST HOW I LIKE IT!

  20. thebusiness says:

    Mark Melancon, where art thou?

  21. Dela G says:

    well cmon yankees

    lets get this shit done tonight

    LETS DO WORK SON

  22. gxpanos says:

    Damn this guy has good stuff. Hope he’s wild so the Yanks get him on the ropes.

  23. Dela G says:

    wow the wind is going to eff up fielding tonight

  24. Dela G says:

    damon looked like a school girl

  25. Rich D. says:

    Matt Holliday? Trade bait? Slow start but is heating up. Wont be surprised if he stays.

  26. Ivan says:

    Are Switch hitters born or made?

  27. Let’s go to Fenway Pahhhhhhhhhhhhk and watch Nomaaaaaaaaaaaah and the Sawwwx play!

  28. Rich D. says:

    Is Nomar hurt yet?

  29. JGS says:

    kinda surprised that they are still booing Nomar

  30. Salty Buggah says:

    well, its early but thats not a good start for the offense.

    Is it me or does it seem like Tex is striking out a lot more and not walking enough?

  31. Ivan says:

    Yo Nomar has a big fucking nose.

  32. The One says:

    Suzuki loves playin the yanks

  33. Jose says:

    Phew, Jack Cust. A good chance for a strikeout here.

  34. Salty Buggah says:

    Cmon CC…get out of this

  35. Zach says:

    Jack Cust has a .294 SLG against lefties this year

  36. Steve H says:

    With regards to the trends post from earlier, let us all please remember one thing.

    Nick Swisher doesn’t slump. He is simply the ultimate team player and intentionally makes outs to allow his teammates to be the hero every one in a while. If he were A-Rod selfish, he would be batting 1.000, no question about it.

  37. Teix is the Man says:

    There goes teh CG SHUTOUT!!
    -MSM’D

  38. Okay it can pour now ;)

  39. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn, oh well hopefully 1 run isn’t too much. I guess we cant get out of 2nd and 3rd less than 2 out jams everytime.

  40. Ryan S. says:

    Its too bad Giambi isn’t going to be around for this series. It’d be fun to see him get a round of applause in the Bronx again, and also … he’d be an easy out.

  41. Dela G says:

    i have a feeling, just like everyone else during this winning streak, the yankees will pound this kid during the second time through the order.

    Jeter and Tex certainly were watching.

    Damon looked fooled on everything

  42. marc resnick says:

    anybody else find it annoying that gameday is liek 10 minutes ahead of yes

  43. Riddering says:

    I’d really enjoy seeing our offense go on a tear tonight. That would be something.

  44. Mike Axisa says:

    Two strike hit to Bobby Crosby? Ugh.

    CC’s a bust.

  45. leokitty says:

    Well this game is going about as well as I expect a game that started at 10 to go, so far.

  46. Ivan says:

    CC leaving alot pitches up in K-Zone, missing his spots.

  47. Dela G says:

    ugh

    bobby effing crosby

  48. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn! CC not sharp today so far

  49. V says:

    Guys – does anyone know how AJax’s arm rates?

    I’d LOVE to have an outfielder who actually has a good (and accurate) arm.

  50. Teix is the Man says:

    heh, a guy in the stands is shouting ‘give him the cheese!’ I don’t know why, but it amuses me greatly.

  51. cjc says:

    fuck another 2 strike hanger god damn it

  52. Zach says:

    posada with the molina-snap-back throw

  53. cjc says:

    this has a 10-2 fuck you for makeing me sit around till 10pm give ups feel to it

  54. Steve H says:

    So when is Bobby Crosby going to win that MVP Gammons predicted for him? And he doesn’t even play for teh Sawx!!!

  55. cjc says:

    this has a 10-2 fuck you for makeing me sit around till 10pm give up feel to it

  56. Salty Buggah says:

    Ok offense…start scoring and dont get out like in the 1st inning.

  57. Danny says:

    hmm i wonder if the MLB netowrk is still showing it or not bc of the rain delay, not that it matters since im blacked out.

  58. Jake H says:

    I don’t have a good feeling about this game.

  59. V says:

    Man, I absolutely love it that YES mentions AJax and Montero.

    Now, if they would only show some damn Scranton and Trenton games on off days.

    • cjc says:

      they used to show clippers and si yanks games on mondays years ago but poor ratings killed it which sucks cause I loved it (except that AAA sucked back then)

  60. Teix is the Man says:

    dan ass-onga=dick

  61. gxpanos says:

    Just have a hunch that unlike Berken, Mazzaro is going to be a young pitcher that throws 7 shutout innings against the Yanks. Deceptive delivery, throwing strikes thus far, great stuff.

  62. cjc says:

    awesome

  63. Jake H says:

    These umps are just trying to get this game in. 2 bs calls already.

    • Rich D. says:

      How does Dan Issona (the 3rd base ump) still have a job. So many times do I hear his name and his called questioned throughout a game.

  64. Riddering says:

    Baseball history: two perfect games started on the same day?

  65. Dela G says:

    i’m telling you guys

    the second time through the order, the kid is toast

  66. Salty Buggah says:

    “Mazzaro’s last start didn’t exactly go according to plan, as the rookie gave up eight runs on 10 hits in three-plus innings against the Angels. Four of the runs were unearned, though, as Oakland committed four errors — one by Mazzaro. After winning his first two starts, Mazzaro is winless in his past seven, and he has a 6.75 ERA in his past four starts.”

    OK, can he have a 6.75 ERA again instead of 4 K’s in 2 IP please?

  67. CC’s getting hit hard tonight.

  68. Yankee1010 says:

    Way too many pitches up in the zone for CC. Just hold them to 2, CC.

    If they plan on sleeping through it like the Nationals’ rain delay game, just let me know so I don’t stay up for the whole thing.

  69. Zach says:

    6 pitch inning? more please

  70. Rich D. says:

    6-4-3 DP! 6 Pitch inning! Lets GO!

  71. [...] Confidence Poll « Game 95 Spillover Thread Jul [...]

  72. Salty Buggah says:

    Phew DP…maybe this gets us rolling

  73. cjc says:

    way to hustle you fucking bum

  74. Rich D. says:

    O another bone head move by Cano! RUN RUN RUN!

  75. Zach says:

    so lazy

  76. Salty Buggah says:

    damnit Robbie…fuck

  77. Yankee1010 says:

    I enjoyed watching the line drive too, Cano.

  78. Cokie says:

    Looks like Robbie and Swish have some sort of bet going.

  79. cjc says:

    sorry thats not a strike broke around the plate

  80. Salty Buggah says:

    well no no-no…

  81. leokitty says:

    this strikezone is pretty huge, the umps want to go home too.

  82. Rich D. says:

    Why do the Yankees make it habit that when they hit against a pitcher they have never seen before, they make him look like a CY winner?

  83. E-ROC says:

    All those rocks in Cano’s head clouded his judgement.

  84. cjc says:

    and thats low ump is pissed he missed his dinner reservation

  85. Mike Axisa says:

    Mazzaro’s getting everything at the knees.

  86. E-ROC says:

    Nasty!

  87. Rich D. says:

    Brett the Jet is on base! Lets go kid!

  88. Mike Axisa says:

    Okay, second time through the order. Time to destroy him.

  89. Steve O. says:

    Matt Holliday >>>> The haters.

  90. Riddering says:

    Gardner forced that sinker to bounce with his mind.

  91. Salty Buggah says:

    Im sure jeter wont come thru…he hasnt lately.

  92. Chef says:

    How does anyone hit this guy? He’s absolutely FILTHY!

  93. E-ROC says:

    What was Kurt doing? lol.

  94. Rich D. says:

    Jeter might need a rest…. He looks lost lately.

  95. JGS says:

    Vin Mazzaro = Ron Guidry?

  96. Riddering says:

    I want this Jersey punk destroyed.

  97. Jake H says:

    This team looks like they want to win tonight.

  98. Salty Buggah says:

    Jeter against RHP…not so good (.274 instead of .400+ against LHP)

  99. E-ROC says:

    Just some ugly swings tonight.

  100. charlespoet says:

    Is CC pitching tonight?

  101. Chef says:

    Mazzaro just pitched the most dominant, filthy first 3 innings of anybody I’ve seen all year in all of baseball.

    That includes Beurhle (sp?) today…

  102. ShuutoHeat says:

    anyone else annoyed by the way Mazzaro’s family/friends are cheering him on? I mean yeah he’s finally in the majors, but I feel like decking them in the face….no offense to Mazzaro.

    • Chef says:

      Nope. Good for him… I’d want my family and friends doing the same thing.

      • ShuutoHeat says:

        guess I’m just annoyed by their annoying dancing…. shaking their hips left and right …

    • Riddering says:

      I am, but I know that’s because baseball brings out the irrational angry beast inside of me.

      They deserve to cheer their guy on. But I will be wishing pain on them all night.

  103. Johnny Damon plays right now?

  104. BigBlueAL says:

    CC is getting ripped.

  105. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Jeter’s been struggling a bit recently, he’s 2 for his last 17 counting today’s 2 AB’s. Maybe it’s time to give him a day off.

    • Drew says:

      Just because a guy goes into a mini slump, if you can call it that, doesn’t mean he needs a day off.

  106. The One says:

    seriously….why does kurt fuckin suzuki own them

  107. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    I blame the rain delay (I really really do).

  108. Jake H says:

    I swear this team looks terrible any time that they have a rain delay. It just seems like they don’t have any problem just going through the motion of this game.

  109. Mike Axisa says:

    This game was over at 8pm. Yanks are completely disinterested in winning.

    Oh well, still 1.5 games up.

    • Mike Pop says:

      No way, my friend. Comeback is coming.

    • Chef says:

      Please… Give Mazzaro some credit. He’s got it going tonight.

      Good for him. As a Yanks fan the easiest loss to swallow is when the opposing pitcher just has one of those nights. You tip your cap and move on.

      That said… Mazzaro has to keep it going for a 4 or 5 more innings.

    • Manimal says:

      Don’t forget, Melky and Cano are usually wide awake at this time

    • Zach says:

      tex hates winning, padding stats

  110. Yankee1010 says:

    Time to wake up guys.

  111. E-ROC says:

    Good try by Hinske.

  112. Salty Buggah says:

    Hopefully CC can at least give us 7 to save the pen for tomorrow if the offense doesnt want to give up.

  113. Manimal says:

    CC struggled his last start against the A’s but the Yanks ended up winning by Melky’s walk off(I was there, wasn’t a pretty game)

  114. JGS says:

    ok, 4 runs this inning

  115. Salty Buggah says:

    Who would you guys want long-term? Haren or Grienke or CC?

  116. Salty Buggah says:

    Ok, Yanks make Dela G’s prediction come through. Hit well through the 2nd time in the order and in the 4th inning like he said.

  117. charlespoet says:

    Yanks would have been better off playing a double header. A comeback win against Oakland. Interesting.

  118. Zach says:

    “17-7 against rookie pitchers; best record in the league”
    from singleton, ha

  119. Riddering says:

    A SINGLE.

    Oh hell yes. We’re winning it all this year.

  120. Zach says:

    tex message

  121. V says:

    I love the 3-0 green light!

  122. Salty Buggah says:

    no DP Tex

  123. charlespoet says:

    This rookie Teixiera might turn out to be better than Giambi.

  124. JGS says:

    that landed one section over from where I would have been sitting had I gone tonight

  125. Esteban says:

    WOOOOHOOOOO

  126. Mike Axisa says:

    Tex came to play.

  127. Cokie says:

    Orgasmic.

  128. Ivan says:

    Crush!!!

    • Salty Buggah says:

      I know huh? As I said a bit earlier, I hope his prediction came through this inning and so far it has

  129. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Take that biatchhh

  130. Steve O. says:

    3-0 HR. Love it. Teix actually has the balls to swing at a 3-0 count.

  131. Riddering says:

    Oh, Tex, you are so manly.

  132. Mike Pop says:

    Woot

  133. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Let’s have a back to back AROD

  134. GG says:

    I feel like Tex would be dissapointed in himself if he hit a cheapie HR, he only goes ’350 plus

  135. Chef says:

    I feel so bad for that baseball…

  136. Ivan says:

    CMW=Done for the year?

  137. JGS says:

    Oh shit, they just said Wang was going to see Dr. James Andrews

    he is done

  138. Reggie C. says:

    Wang is fucked….

    too bad really.

  139. Cokie says:

    Uh oh. The Wang to Andrews? Shoulder?

  140. Dela G says:

    WHAT DID I TELL YOU PEOPLE ABOUT THE SECOND TIME THROUGH THE ORDER! :D

    YOURE ON THE MARK TEIXIERA!

  141. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Godzilla will step all over Mazz’s azz.

  142. Salty Buggah says:

    no DP matsui

  143. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    If Cashman traded Wang to Phillie when the time came, he might look like a genius right now.

    • Salty Buggah says:

      or He comes back next year and is 2007 Wang again and Cash is genius again. And he is already genius for not signing him long-term. And right now, we’d be selling super low on him.

    • Cokie says:

      Well, at least he didn’t give him a multi year deal. If he can’t pitch they can just not offer him a contract next year.

    • GG says:

      and who knows if he huts his shoulder, you can’t play the game of what if’s b/c everything changes

  144. Reggie C. says:

    Washburn impressed yet again today. I think its time we gave Seattle a call.

  145. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    DP possibility gone

  146. GG says:

    I’m not saying I want to take on Well’s contract (not that I’d be the one paying it), but I think TOR is playing the Halladay thing wrong, that Wells contract should be what they are most worried about, if they can use Halladay as leverage to unload that, they are doing themselves an enormous favor.

  147. Ivan says:

    Po Po in the da house

  148. Accent Shallow says:

    ‘Sado!

  149. Salty Buggah says:

    A-rod always has a streak in which he steals a lot of bases and then just stops for a while. He should do it a bit more often (I understand if not this year as he’s not up to full speed). He’s a smart basestealer and has pretty good speed.

  150. Esteban says:

    GEORGIE

  151. E-ROC says:

    Matsui just missed that pitch. Damn!

  152. charlespoet says:

    Am I seeing things or is ARod running funny?

  153. Mike Axisa says:

    Fantastic. I figured this one was mailed in from the start.

  154. Salty Buggah says:

    JoPo! cmon Robbie, time to shine with RISP

  155. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    YES!

  156. Jose says:

    Has anyone noticed that if you search RAB on Google that on the first page of results is “Retarded Animal Babies”, but “River Avenue Blues” is nowhere to be found?

  157. Mike Pop says:

    Eric Hinske is the greatest Yankee of all time. True Yankee.

  158. Manimal says:

    Hinske has been a great addition

  159. Esteban says:

    Hinske>>> LaRoche

  160. pat says:

    ALL HINSKE DOES IS DRINK BEER AND PRODUCE BASEBALL RUNS

  161. NYQ says:

    Eric Hinske >>>>>> Adam LaRoche

  162. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Hinske has been amazing for us!

  163. Dela G says:

    and robinson is as good with RISP as giambi was fielding the ball

  164. nick says:

    John S drives me nuts…”that ball is high, it is far, it is…a one-hopper over the fence…”

    I know I’ve been listening to it for years, so I guess I would miss it…I’m just saying.

  165. Riddering says:

    Hinske is the greatest Yankee #14 I have ever seen.

    This year.

  166. Accent Shallow says:

    Go back to Jersey, you don’t belong here.

  167. E-ROC says:

    Hinske!
