First pitch is tentatively scheduled for 9:40pm. East coast baseball with west coast start times.
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.
If we don’t want Kei Igawa to have a chance to start then yes playing late should be worth it.
Exactly that and having the pen in balance are the only reasons I’m happy a game is happening today.
there actually looks like a lot more fans stayed than i originally gave people credit for.
Man, just looked at Buerhle’s B-R for the first time. That dude is the Albert Pujols of innings-eaters.
but i was told you cant succesful pitcher without throwing 97??
Only if you’re left handed.
Check out his PitchFX. Throws about 85-86 MPH
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.
Wow, a spillover thread with no game.
This must be a record of some kind
with no game YET…read the 1st comment.
I’ve made a note of it in my big book of useless info right above the length of the longest chain of paper clips and right below the diameter of the largest wad of chewing gum.
Dave Robertson looked like a freaking G.I. Joe next to CC.
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
Over/under 6.5 innings tonight?
Under. Yankees win in 5, CC gets a cheapie complete game!
That would be so awesome if we win like that.
If he goes perfect through five, would that count???
no, but he would probably get a footnote somewhere
just like Pedro, threw 9 perfect innings, gives up double in 10th, doesnt count gets a special mention
Harvey Haddix had it a little worse than Pedro.
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.
how pissed would you be at your offense
probably only slightly more pissed than Jonathan Sanchez is at Juan Uribe
under, but I sure hope over
this game is being played because this is an organization that hates its fans.
No its because this is an organization that hates Kei Igawa and loves it’s bullpen.
I think it’s because they love their fans and don’t want to expose them to Kei Igawa.
Seriously, can you imagine if you were at the stadium tonight?
Sorry, this is a merciful organization that ADORES its fans.
Do YOU want to see Igawa start a game?
But the yankees are the evil! They made me pay for seats, parking and…FOOD! They are evils!
Those lucky A’s, this must feel like a normal home game to them.
Well not really. 10:00 PM East coast time is 7:00 West Coast time.
Think about it more.
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?
Let’s hope so. I wanna keep the streak going and be 2.5 games in the lead.
Nomar on a wet surface, how many innings till he pulls something?
He’ll do it in the on deck circle.
He’ll do it walking to the on deck circle.
He’ll do it looking at the on deck circle.
Give me a win yankees on my B-Day guys.
Happy B-day, Ivan.
Happy Birthday Bro!
Happy Birth Anniversary! I hope the Yanks win one for you.
This is crazy… 2 hr. 43 minute rain delay. I miss those day/night double headers!
I wouldn’t mind a DH if we had a off day anytime soon.
Yeah and this is already a makeup of a rain out.
not until the first week in August… Monday, Aug. 3 to be exact.
thats why I didnt want a DH
I hope CC is sharp today…and Mazzaro is not.
NOT WITH THE BAREHAND!
Is the YES gun off tonight? Seems like it.
The YES gun is always off. Constantly clocking changeups and curveballs at 96. Better off having gameday open and going with those numbers.
I don’t understand how their gun can be off. I know it is but I can’t see why it would. You point it towards the path and it should be right. wtf
Nahh… i meant turned off. it hasnt registered any velos tonight.
It even has Hughes throwing faster than 91 mph. And we all know, Hughes will never amount to shit because he can only throw 91.
When isn’t the YES gun off?
I just hope it has quadruple digits for when Melvin arrives.
Or for when Nick Swisher pitches again.
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.
I can’t even imagine sterling trying to sing that one but I can’t wait to hear it.
you’re giving him too much credit… i bet sterling doesnt even realize that’s from a song.
you are 100% correct no chance he even tries to sing it.
I kind of doubt it myself. If he does though, I’ll laugh my ass off and probably gloat for no reason.
1-2-3 inning! Sharp and quick, JUST HOW I LIKE IT!
Mark Melancon, where art thou?
tied up in the bullpen never to be seen again!
well cmon yankees
lets get this shit done tonight
LETS DO WORK SON
Damn this guy has good stuff. Hope he’s wild so the Yanks get him on the ropes.
wow the wind is going to eff up fielding tonight
WE R SCREWED IN LEFT FIELD!
damon looked like a school girl
Matt Holliday? Trade bait? Slow start but is heating up. Wont be surprised if he stays.
Are Switch hitters born or made?
made… no doubt.
Well, I taught myself to bat laft handed after being a natural righty. I’m sure they are all taught…or forced if Hideki still batted righty.
Let’s go to Fenway Pahhhhhhhhhhhhk and watch Nomaaaaaaaaaaaah and the Sawwwx play!
Is Nomar hurt yet?
kinda surprised that they are still booing Nomar
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?
Yo Nomar has a big fucking nose.
Suzuki loves playin the yanks
Phew, Jack Cust. A good chance for a strikeout here.
Cmon CC…get out of this
Jack Cust has a .294 SLG against lefties this year
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.
What would happen if he batted against Melvin Croussett?
The world would end.
There goes teh CG SHUTOUT!!
Okay it can pour now
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.
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.
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
anybody else find it annoying that gameday is liek 10 minutes ahead of yes
I’d really enjoy seeing our offense go on a tear tonight. That would be something.
Two strike hit to Bobby Crosby? Ugh.
CC’s a bust.
Well this game is going about as well as I expect a game that started at 10 to go, so far.
CC leaving alot pitches up in K-Zone, missing his spots.
bobby effing crosby
Damn! CC not sharp today so far
Guys – does anyone know how AJax’s arm rates?
I’d LOVE to have an outfielder who actually has a good (and accurate) arm.
heh, a guy in the stands is shouting ‘give him the cheese!’ I don’t know why, but it amuses me greatly.
yeah i am hearing it too
thats the one thing about rainouts
you can hear EVERYTHING
fuck another 2 strike hanger god damn it
posada with the molina-snap-back throw
this has a 10-2 fuck you for makeing me sit around till 10pm give ups feel to it
So when is Bobby Crosby going to win that MVP Gammons predicted for him? And he doesn’t even play for teh Sawx!!!
this has a 10-2 fuck you for makeing me sit around till 10pm give up feel to it
sorry double post
Thats a 1st…duplicate comments separated by a different comment.
Ok offense…start scoring and dont get out like in the 1st inning.
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.
It is. Matt Vasgersian and Harold Reynolds on the call.
I don’t have a good feeling about this game.
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.
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)
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.
berken didn’t even last 7 innings!
These umps are just trying to get this game in. 2 bs calls already.
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.
Baseball history: two perfect games started on the same day?
No way, Jose?
haha, how did I not see myself walk into that?
I don’t know but you’ve made my night.
El Presidente and Kenny Rogers–July 28th 1991 and 1994
i’m telling you guys
the second time through the order, the kid is toast
“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?
CC’s getting hit hard tonight.
yes he is
he was the same way his last start
he’ll turn it around
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.
6 pitch inning? more please
6-4-3 DP! 6 Pitch inning! Lets GO!
Pingback: GCL Yanks go down swinging in doubleheader | River Avenue Blues
Phew DP…maybe this gets us rolling
we will get it going in the 4th inning i bet
way to hustle you fucking bum
O another bone head move by Cano! RUN RUN RUN!
I enjoyed watching the line drive too, Cano.
Looks like Robbie and Swish have some sort of bet going.
sorry thats not a strike broke around the plate
yea outside on Gameday
well no no-no…
this strikezone is pretty huge, the umps want to go home too.
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?
yes because if they dont score 7 runs before the 3rd inning they suck
All those rocks in Cano’s head clouded his judgement.
and thats low ump is pissed he missed his dinner reservation
Mazzaro’s getting everything at the knees.
That’s just dirty Axisa
and CC’s not
Brett the Jet is on base! Lets go kid!
Stole base number 20 on the season!
Okay, second time through the order. Time to destroy him.
Matt Holliday >>>> The haters.
Matt Holliday < $20m/season
Yes, he isn’t worth nearly 20 million a season. Few players are.
Gardner forced that sinker to bounce with his mind.
Im sure jeter wont come thru…he hasnt lately.
I was half-joking but it was true
Hey sunshine!!! So glad you’re here!
it was a reverse jinx because it has worked lately for me…not recently for Jeter though for some odd reason
Mazzaro’s geting a lot:
That also has strikes that were they were swinging at right?
How does anyone hit this guy? He’s absolutely FILTHY!
What was Kurt doing? lol.
Jeter might need a rest…. He looks lost lately.
he just had 4 days off and then played 6 games at home
Vin Mazzaro = Ron Guidry?
I want this Jersey punk destroyed.
This team looks like they want to win tonight.
Jeter against RHP…not so good (.274 instead of .400+ against LHP)
Just some ugly swings tonight.
Is CC pitching tonight?
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…
But he’s on pace to match Clemens’ 20 strikeout game.
Kind of. But not really.
Nope. I meant every single word.
Burnett in late June against the Mets was probably just as dominant.
Of course this guy doesn’t always pitch like that. But I’ve watched a ton of baseball this year and I haven’t seen a better first 3 innings of a start.
Hyperbole is the single, most greatest thing in the world. Period.
This is the greatest comment ever. Truer words have never been spoken in the history of the universe. I can only hope that it will be immortalized forever. You are like a Gandhi that eats.
Holy Crap!!! Poor, poor baseball…
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.
Nope. Good for him… I’d want my family and friends doing the same thing.
guess I’m just annoyed by their annoying dancing…. shaking their hips left and right …
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.
Johnny Damon plays right now?
CC is getting ripped.
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.
Just because a guy goes into a mini slump, if you can call it that, doesn’t mean he needs a day off.
seriously….why does kurt fuckin suzuki own them
its just sick
I blame the rain delay (I really really do).
They’re playing in Oakland time, just not fun.
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.
This game was over at 8pm. Yanks are completely disinterested in winning.
Oh well, still 1.5 games up.
No way, my friend. Comeback is coming.
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.
Don’t forget, Melky and Cano are usually wide awake at this time
tex hates winning, padding stats
Time to wake up guys.
Good try by Hinske.
Hopefully CC can at least give us 7 to save the pen for tomorrow if the offense doesnt want to give up.
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)
ok, 4 runs this inning
Who would you guys want long-term? Haren or Grienke or CC?
Greinke–he is three years younger
Grienke. No questions asked.
Greinke, but I don’t see him leaving KC for a while.
Haren, he has the nastiest stuff of the 3 IMO and has the potential to be greater longer(If that makes sense).
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.
Yanks would have been better off playing a double header. A comeback win against Oakland. Interesting.
“17-7 against rookie pitchers; best record in the league”
from singleton, ha
Oh hell yes. We’re winning it all this year.
I love the 3-0 green light!
no DP Tex
This rookie Teixiera might turn out to be better than Giambi.
that landed one section over from where I would have been sitting had I gone tonight
Tex came to play.
Dela G you are a prophet.
I know huh? As I said a bit earlier, I hope his prediction came through this inning and so far it has
Take that biatchhh
3-0 HR. Love it. Teix actually has the balls to swing at a 3-0 count.
Oh, Tex, you are so manly.
Let’s have a back to back AROD
I feel like Tex would be dissapointed in himself if he hit a cheapie HR, he only goes ’350 plus
I feel so bad for that baseball…
CMW=Done for the year?
Oh shit, they just said Wang was going to see Dr. James Andrews
he is done
Didn’t the Yankees do the same thing with Marte?
Wang is fucked….
too bad really.
Uh oh. The Wang to Andrews? Shoulder?
WHAT DID I TELL YOU PEOPLE ABOUT THE SECOND TIME THROUGH THE ORDER!
YOURE ON THE MARK TEIXIERA!
Steve H I already gave you props…
and dont forget you also predicted the 4th inning too.
i need to read this thread more
maybe i need to quit my accounting degree and go into studying with miss cleo
Call Dela G now for your free tarot reading!!!
and if you call within the next 15 mins, i’ll throw in marriage counseling fo free!
Godzilla will step all over Mazz’s azz.
no DP matsui
If Cashman traded Wang to Phillie when the time came, he might look like a genius right now.
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.
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.
and who knows if he huts his shoulder, you can’t play the game of what if’s b/c everything changes
Washburn impressed yet again today. I think its time we gave Seattle a call.
DP possibility gone
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.
is the Wells contract preventing them from doing anything? do they have a CF tearing up AAA?
That scares teams away.
Po Po in the da house
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.
Matsui just missed that pitch. Damn!
Am I seeing things or is ARod running funny?
Like a 1st baseman
Fantastic. I figured this one was mailed in from the start.
JoPo! cmon Robbie, time to shine with RISP
The Batting Stance Guy’s next stance should be Cano swinging at a ball with RISP and instantly shrugging his shoulders and dropping his bat.
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?
Eric Hinske is the greatest Yankee of all time. True Yankee.
brings over that heart he was given when he played for boston
Hinske has been a great addition
ALL HINSKE DOES IS DRINK BEER AND PRODUCE BASEBALL RUNS
Eric Hinske >>>>>> Adam LaRoche
Tex >>>>>>> LaRoche, Kotsay & Youk combine
Hinske has been amazing for us!
and robinson is as good with RISP as giambi was fielding the ball
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.
Hinske is the greatest Yankee #14 I have ever seen.
Just don’t fucking touch Paulie’s number, Eric. Don’t touch it!
Go back to Jersey, you don’t belong here.
