Game 95: Chance of game low (Updated with start time)
GCL Yanks go down swinging in doubleheader
  • Salty Buggah

    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

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

      • Salty Buggah

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

    • TurnTwo

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

  • http://leegrantphotography.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/madmax.jpg gxpanos

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

    • Zach

      but i was told you cant succesful pitcher without throwing 97??

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        Only if you’re left handed.

        • Zach

          ah gotcha

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Check out his PitchFX. Throws about 85-86 MPH

      http://www.fangraphs.com/pitch.....P#velocity

  • Salty Buggah

    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.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Wow, a spillover thread with no game.

    This must be a record of some kind

    • Salty Buggah

      with no game YET…read the 1st comment.

    • Jose

      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.

      • Steve H

        IETC.

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

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

  • GG

    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

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

    Over/under 6.5 innings tonight?

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

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

      • Salty Buggah

        That would be so awesome if we win like that.

      • GG

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

        • JGS

          no, but he would probably get a footnote somewhere

          • Zach

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

            • Steve H

              Harvey Haddix had it a little worse than Pedro.

              • Zach

                yeah 12

            • Salty Buggah

              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.

              • Zach

                how pissed would you be at your offense

                • JGS

                  probably only slightly more pissed than Jonathan Sanchez is at Juan Uribe

    • GG

      under, but I sure hope over

  • Victoria

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

    • Salty Buggah

      No its because this is an organization that hates Kei Igawa and loves it’s bullpen.

    • Chris B

      I think it’s because they love their fans and don’t want to expose them to Kei Igawa.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Seriously, can you imagine if you were at the stadium tonight?

    • http://leegrantphotography.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/madmax.jpg gxpanos

      Sorry, this is a merciful organization that ADORES its fans.

      Do YOU want to see Igawa start a game?

      • JobaWockeeZ

        But the yankees are the evil! They made me pay for seats, parking and…FOOD! They are evils!

  • Salty Buggah

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

    • Ivan

      Well not really. 10:00 PM East coast time is 7:00 West Coast time.

      • http://leegrantphotography.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/madmax.jpg gxpanos

        Think about it more.

    • Steve O.

      Sarcasm?

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    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?

    • Salty Buggah

      Let’s hope so. I wanna keep the streak going and be 2.5 games in the lead.

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

    NOMAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

  • Chris B

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

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

      He’ll do it in the on deck circle.

      • Steve H

        He’ll do it walking to the on deck circle.

        Or

        He’ll do it looking at the on deck circle.

  • Ivan

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

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

      Happy B-day, Ivan.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Happy Birthday Bro!

    • GG

      happy B-day

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

      Happy Birfday.

    • Salty Buggah

      Happy Birth Anniversary! I hope the Yanks win one for you.

    • Ivan

      Thanks guys.

    • Steve O.

      Happy birthday.

  • Rich D.

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

    • Salty Buggah

      I wouldn’t mind a DH if we had a off day anytime soon.

      • Chris B

        Yeah and this is already a makeup of a rain out.

      • Rich D.

        not until the first week in August… Monday, Aug. 3 to be exact.

        • Salty Buggah

          thats why I didnt want a DH

  • Salty Buggah

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

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

    NOT WITH THE BAREHAND!

  • Reggie C.

    Is the YES gun off tonight? Seems like it.

    • Chris B

      The YES gun is always off. Constantly clocking changeups and curveballs at 96. Better off having gameday open and going with those numbers.

      • cor shep

        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

      • Reggie C.

        Nahh… i meant turned off. it hasnt registered any velos tonight.

      • Steve H

        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.

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

      When isn’t the YES gun off?

      • Steve H

        I just hope it has quadruple digits for when Melvin arrives.

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

          Or for when Nick Swisher pitches again.

  • Ryan S.

    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.

    • Chris B

      I can’t even imagine sterling trying to sing that one but I can’t wait to hear it.

      • TurnTwo

        you’re giving him too much credit… i bet sterling doesnt even realize that’s from a song.

        • Chris B

          you are 100% correct no chance he even tries to sing it.

          • Ryan S.

            I kind of doubt it myself. If he does though, I’ll laugh my ass off and probably gloat for no reason.

  • Rich D.

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

  • thebusiness

    Mark Melancon, where art thou?

    • Danny

      tied up in the bullpen never to be seen again!

  • Dela G

    well cmon yankees

    lets get this shit done tonight

    LETS DO WORK SON

  • http://leegrantphotography.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/madmax.jpg gxpanos

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

  • Dela G

    wow the wind is going to eff up fielding tonight

    • Trevor

      Think Damon.

    • Rich D.

      WE R SCREWED IN LEFT FIELD!

  • Dela G

    damon looked like a school girl

  • Rich D.

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

  • Ivan

    Are Switch hitters born or made?

    • Rich D.

      made… no doubt.

    • Salty Buggah

      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.

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

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

  • Rich D.

    Is Nomar hurt yet?

  • JGS

    kinda surprised that they are still booing Nomar

  • Salty Buggah

    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?

  • Ivan

    Yo Nomar has a big fucking nose.

  • The One

    Suzuki loves playin the yanks

  • Jose

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

  • Salty Buggah

    Cmon CC…get out of this

  • Zach

    Jack Cust has a .294 SLG against lefties this year

  • Steve H

    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.

    • Jose

      What would happen if he batted against Melvin Croussett?

      • Steve H

        The world would end.

  • Teix is the Man

    There goes teh CG SHUTOUT!!
    -MSM’D

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

    Okay it can pour now ;)

  • Salty Buggah

    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.

  • Ryan S.

    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.

  • Dela G

    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

  • marc resnick

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

  • Riddering

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

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

    Two strike hit to Bobby Crosby? Ugh.

    CC’s a bust.

  • http://www.teamnerdrage.com leokitty

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

  • Ivan

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

  • Dela G

    ugh

    bobby effing crosby

  • Salty Buggah

    Damn! CC not sharp today so far

  • V

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

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

  • Teix is the Man

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

    • Dela G

      yeah i am hearing it too

      thats the one thing about rainouts

      you can hear EVERYTHING

  • cjc

    fuck another 2 strike hanger god damn it

  • Zach

    posada with the molina-snap-back throw

  • cjc

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

  • Steve H

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

  • cjc

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

    • cjc

      sorry double post

    • Salty Buggah

      Thats a 1st…duplicate comments separated by a different comment.

  • Salty Buggah

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

  • Danny

    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.

    • Luis Polonia

      It is. Matt Vasgersian and Harold Reynolds on the call.

  • Jake H

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

  • V

    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

      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)

  • Teix is the Man

    dan ass-onga=dick

  • http://leegrantphotography.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/madmax.jpg gxpanos

    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.

    • http://www.teamnerdrage.com leokitty

      berken didn’t even last 7 innings!

  • cjc

    awesome

  • Jake H

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

    • Rich D.

      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.

  • Riddering

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

    • Jose

      No way.

      • Riddering

        No way, Jose?

        • Jose

          haha, how did I not see myself walk into that?

          • Riddering

            I don’t know but you’ve made my night. ;)

    • JGS

      El Presidente and Kenny Rogers–July 28th 1991 and 1994

  • Dela G

    i’m telling you guys

    the second time through the order, the kid is toast

  • Salty Buggah

    “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?

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

    CC’s getting hit hard tonight.

    • Dela G

      yes he is :(

      he was the same way his last start

      he’ll turn it around

  • Yankee1010

    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.

  • Zach

    6 pitch inning? more please

  • Rich D.

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

  • Pingback: GCL Yanks go down swinging in doubleheader | River Avenue Blues

  • Salty Buggah

    Phew DP…maybe this gets us rolling

    • Dela G

      we will get it going in the 4th inning i bet

  • cjc

    way to hustle you fucking bum

  • Rich D.

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

  • Zach

    so lazy

  • Salty Buggah

    damnit Robbie…fuck

  • Yankee1010

    I enjoyed watching the line drive too, Cano.

  • Cokie

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

  • cjc

    sorry thats not a strike broke around the plate

    • Salty Buggah

      yea outside on Gameday

  • Salty Buggah

    well no no-no…

  • http://www.teamnerdrage.com leokitty

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

    • Rich D.

      AGREED!

  • Rich D.

    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?

    • Zach

      yes because if they dont score 7 runs before the 3rd inning they suck

  • E-ROC

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

  • cjc

    and thats low ump is pissed he missed his dinner reservation

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

    Mazzaro’s getting everything at the knees.

    • Teix is the Man

      That’s just dirty Axisa

    • Salty Buggah

      and CC’s not

  • E-ROC

    Nasty!

  • Rich D.

    Brett the Jet is on base! Lets go kid!

    • Rich D.

      Stole base number 20 on the season!

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

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

  • Steve O.

    Matt Holliday >>>> The haters.

    • Zach

      Matt Holliday < $20m/season

      • Steve O.

        Yes, he isn’t worth nearly 20 million a season. Few players are.

  • Riddering

    Gardner forced that sinker to bounce with his mind.

  • Salty Buggah

    Im sure jeter wont come thru…he hasnt lately.

    • Salty Buggah

      I was half-joking but it was true

    • Chef

      Hey sunshine!!! So glad you’re here!

      • Salty Buggah

        it was a reverse jinx because it has worked lately for me…not recently for Jeter though for some odd reason

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

      That also has strikes that were they were swinging at right?

  • Chef

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

  • E-ROC

    What was Kurt doing? lol.

  • Rich D.

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

    • Zach

      he just had 4 days off and then played 6 games at home

  • JGS

    Vin Mazzaro = Ron Guidry?

  • Riddering

    I want this Jersey punk destroyed.

  • Jake H

    This team looks like they want to win tonight.

  • Salty Buggah

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

  • E-ROC

    Just some ugly swings tonight.

  • charlespoet

    Is CC pitching tonight?

  • Chef

    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…

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

      Hyperbole much?

      • Jose

        But he’s on pace to match Clemens’ 20 strikeout game.

        • Luis Polonia

          Kind of. But not really.

      • Chef

        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.

      • Steve O.

        Hyperbole is the single, most greatest thing in the world. Period.

        • Jose

          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.

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

          IETC.

        • Chef

          Holy Crap!!! Poor, poor baseball…

  • ShuutoHeat

    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

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

      • ShuutoHeat

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

    • Riddering

      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.

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

    Johnny Damon plays right now?

  • BigBlueAL

    CC is getting ripped.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    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

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

  • The One

    seriously….why does kurt fuckin suzuki own them

    • cjc

      its just sick

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

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

    • Mike Pop

      They’re playing in Oakland time, just not fun.

  • Jake H

    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.

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

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

    Oh well, still 1.5 games up.

    • Mike Pop

      No way, my friend. Comeback is coming.

    • Chef

      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

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

    • Zach

      tex hates winning, padding stats

  • Yankee1010

    Time to wake up guys.

  • E-ROC

    Good try by Hinske.

  • Salty Buggah

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

  • Manimal

    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)

  • JGS

    ok, 4 runs this inning

  • Salty Buggah

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

    • Mike Pop

      Grienke. Youngest.

    • JGS

      Greinke–he is three years younger

    • Steve O.

      Grienke. No questions asked.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Greinke, but I don’t see him leaving KC for a while.

    • Manimal

      Haren, he has the nastiest stuff of the 3 IMO and has the potential to be greater longer(If that makes sense).

    • Jose

      Bronson Arroyo

    • Steve H

    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.

  • charlespoet

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

  • Zach

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

  • Riddering

    A SINGLE.

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

  • Zach

    tex message

  • V

    I love the 3-0 green light!

  • Salty Buggah

    no DP Tex

    • Salty Buggah

      that works

  • charlespoet

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

  • JGS

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

  • Esteban

    WOOOOHOOOOO

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

    Tex came to play.

  • Cokie

    Orgasmic.

  • Ivan

    Crush!!!

  • Steve H
    • Salty Buggah

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

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Take that biatchhh

  • Steve O.

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

  • Riddering

    Oh, Tex, you are so manly.

  • Mike Pop

    Woot

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Let’s have a back to back AROD

  • GG

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

  • Chef

    I feel so bad for that baseball…

  • Ivan

    CMW=Done for the year?

  • JGS

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

    he is done

    • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

      Didn’t the Yankees do the same thing with Marte?

  • Reggie C.

    Wang is fucked….

    too bad really.

  • Cokie

    Uh oh. The Wang to Andrews? Shoulder?

  • Dela G

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

    YOURE ON THE MARK TEIXIERA!

    • Salty Buggah

      Steve H I already gave you props…

      and dont forget you also predicted the 4th inning too.

      • Dela G

        i need to read this thread more

      • Dela G

        maybe i need to quit my accounting degree and go into studying with miss cleo

        • Steve H

          Call Dela G now for your free tarot reading!!!

          • Dela G

            and if you call within the next 15 mins, i’ll throw in marriage counseling fo free!

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Godzilla will step all over Mazz’s azz.

  • Salty Buggah

    no DP matsui

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

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

    • Salty Buggah

      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

      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

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

  • Reggie C.

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

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    DP possibility gone

  • GG

    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.

    • Zach

      is the Wells contract preventing them from doing anything? do they have a CF tearing up AAA?

    • Mike Pop

      That scares teams away.

  • Ivan

    Po Po in the da house

  • Accent Shallow

    ‘Sado!

  • Salty Buggah

    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.

  • Esteban

    GEORGIE

  • E-ROC

    Matsui just missed that pitch. Damn!

  • charlespoet

    Am I seeing things or is ARod running funny?

    • Steve H

      Like a 1st baseman

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

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

  • Salty Buggah

    JoPo! cmon Robbie, time to shine with RISP

    • Salty Buggah

      or not

      • Yankee1010

        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.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    YES!

  • Jose

    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?

  • Mike Pop

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

    • Zach

      brings over that heart he was given when he played for boston

  • Manimal

    Hinske has been a great addition

  • Esteban

    Hinske>>> LaRoche

  • pat

    ALL HINSKE DOES IS DRINK BEER AND PRODUCE BASEBALL RUNS

  • NYQ

    Eric Hinske >>>>>> Adam LaRoche

    • NYQ

      Also
      Tex >>>>>>> LaRoche, Kotsay & Youk combine

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Hinske has been amazing for us!

  • Dela G

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

  • nick

    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.

  • Riddering

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

    This year.

    • Mike Pop

      Just don’t fucking touch Paulie’s number, Eric. Don’t touch it!

  • Accent Shallow

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

  • E-ROC

    Hinske!
