    My boy’s ERA took a hit that inning. 3.90, had a great string of starts and one bad inning takes all that work away.

  • Rey22

    …Why is Cody Ransom playing first again?

    • Mike Pop

      To give Teix a half day off and he hits lefties better than Hinske.

  • Salty Buggah

    OK, hit your asses of with RISP offense and win this game!!!!

    And how the fuck is that 1st strike to Hairston a strike when AJ’s were not??? Time to get better umpires, this has happened too much this year.

  • Riddering

    How many pinch-hitters do we see this game?

  • Mike Pop

    Hairston didn’t hit a hr?

    Why did Cash pick this guy up again…

  • Tank the Frank

    TSJC:
    T White Sox have been batting better with RISP all season long…with an offense that is 9th in runs and 9th in OPS. But it’s luck right?

    Or maybe it’s the fact that the Yankees ARE NOT A GOOD TEAM WITH RISP!

    Homer or bust, Teixeira.

    • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

      Would a single suffice?

      • Riddering

        Yes, but only because Jeter was on 2nd and not Posada. :p

      Okay, that’s good too, Texy.

  • Goose

    Can someone give me a compelling reason why Ransom is on this team, and Pena in the minors? Open to ideas….

    • Mike Pop

      Pena is learning to play CF/rest of outfield for the long term.

    • Dela G

      pena needs to get CF playing time thats why

      not too hard to understand

    • Bob Stone

      Every day playing time and development time that he would not get in the majors.

      • Goose

        Sorry, have to disagree, Pena would be better served with getting more experience at the Major League Level and have him learn from the pros

  • Riddering

    That 1-2-3 inning brought tears my eyes.

  • acb

    with the way the lineup is setup tonight im almost positivie its impossible for the yankees to have a “rally in their bones”

    these 1 pitch outs arent helping either

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Time will tell. Just remember that if we do lose today, it probably won’t be because our 8-9 hitters are Hairston-Ransom, it will be because one of our twin aces gave up 6 runs in the 2nd. Just remember that.

  • Salty Buggah

    Jorge is in a slump on the roadtrip

  • GG

    Robbie what is that shit???

  • toad

    The RISP problem is real, not luck. Half a season is a lot. The Yanks had 3562 AB’s coming into today. BA with RISP = .261. BA without RISP = .282. That’s a big difference.

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

    McCarver talking about the reemergence of Brian Bruney.

    • GG

      It’s goin downhill from there

    Ok. Enough. This Cody Random shit has got to end soon. It’s like some sort of Andy Kaufman routine, like the Yankees are just fucking with us at this point. I can’t think of any other reason we have to keep watching him strike out, other than that it’s part of some sort of performance art.

    (I know, I know, he’s the last guy on the bench. I’m not saying he’s some sort of huge problem. But he shouldn’t be on this roster, he does nothing well.)

    • Billy

      its a joke whenever he plays. i cant believe he’s still here

  • stuart

    this is like the angels series redo.

    they get all the big hits, we play sloppy baseball.

    ransom must have gone to the cano and swisher school for hitting with RISP…

    ransom is just a scrub. bottom line, probably a nice guy but he is just bad….if he had great speed or a great glove that is one thing but he has no outstanding skills…

    • Salty Buggah

      well, I hope we go on a streak like we did after the Angels series, especially with Boston coming up.

  • J Squared

    not only did he throw the changeup more than once and got a swing and a miss… in the same spot? it was never a strike… until cody took a swing at it, you wold think… hey, kid had 2 doubles not long ago, maybe he’s coming around… NAH!!!!

  • BigBlueAL

    Cody Ransom is so versatile.

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

    We’ll have Damon, Melky, Gardner, Hairston, Swisher, Hinske. That sounds like a lot of OFers.

    • Drew

      Bah, I guess Hairston would be considered a super util guy, but still.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Yeah, when Gardner returns, I imagine Hairston would replace Ransom and take all the infield days off.

    • Jose

      Hairston is more of an IFer.

  • acb

    seriously the yankees are on crack i mean cmon brett tomko , angel berroa , cody ransom 3 minor leagueres on the yankees major league roster

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      Try comparing those guys to the 25th man on other MLB rosters and then come back to us.

      and if one of them worked out… OH, THE YANKEES ARE GENIUSES!!!

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        • acb

          so you would rather have brett tomko over melancon. or ANYONE over berroa?

          • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

            Seeing as how 1) Berroa’s spot never played, 2) Tomko barely played and complained about the fact, and 3) Melancon rotted away for two weeks to the point that WE all complained about it, yeah, I’d rather have a cruddy vet wasting away in the 25th spot on the roster than a promising youngster having his development slowed by not playing everyday.

      well, to be fair Andy kinda got those calls too. Today, however, this ump is being inconsistent and is really favoring the Sox. And yea, I agree that it seems umps have been screwing us over all year but havent helped us.

      • J Squared

        Andy got some calls, but for him the ball was actually in the zone at one point… a righty throwing a curveball to a lefty outside… is never in the strikezone… and more than 6 inches off the plate? inexcuseable… happened more than once… pretty sure on strike 3 also.

        • Salty Buggah

          true, from what I can remember, Andy did have balls closer to the zone more often and that it did end up helping Floyd a bit more.

        • Rick in Boston

          I think 6 inches is a little over-exagerated. Pettitte got more calls outside the strike zone than Floyd did. Both took advantage of the strike zone. If anything, Floyd should be complaining that he wasn’t getting the same calls as Pettitte.

  • Billy

    its not lookin good guys

    • Zack

      yup, this team hasnt comes back all year

    I’m not a tour guy, or a tour guide.

      Tim McCarver does not speak well with RISP.

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

        He’s really taking his game to the next level today.

  • Tony B

    calm down brennaman you perv

  • Riddering

    Dye looks a lot like Thome.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    Almost hit him in the balls.

    • acb

      wish he would hit perzinsky in the balls

  • Tony B

    we need mccarver to tell us that a baseball in the leg hurts?

    • Jose

      He is a medical expert. He knows more about useless innings caps then so-called doctors.

  • acb

    i wasnt going to bitch ab out the ump until i saw his called strikes on jeter

    • J Squared

      i wouldn’t complain about the umps if they were fined or suspended for a certain amount of bad calls, or paid less for being a worser umpire… but since they are all somehow great people… i have complaints…

  • Riddering

    Have the Sox GIDP yet today? I think they’re due.

  • Salty Buggah

    I hope those Orioles win today. Unlikely but I’ll hope. I also hope we will comeback.

  • J Squared

    JERRY!!! I LOVE THIS F*CKIN GUY!!!

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

    I already like this Hairston kid.

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    OMG HAIRSTON WITH THE JETERIAN DIVE!!!!

  • Drew

    OMG STFU! This guy is unbelievable.

  • Cokie

    WTF? Just got home and turned on the game. Cody Ransom is still on the team? Burnett pitching like mitre? I guess bad pitching is contagious too.

    • Jose

      Hopefully whatever ails the brain of McCarver isn’t contagious.

  • J Squared

    Didn’t he have a great play like that last year? The guys a great fielder, if he can do work with the bat… Yankees get a steal.

  • YankeeScribe

    is it ok to call Hairston “Gritty”

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Facially, Carlos Quentin reminds me of Matt Leinart.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    So you’re saying Carlos Quentin reminds you of a Matt Leinart facial?

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Eww, and (golf clap).

  • Tony B

    win a cheapy? hes gutted this start out he had one bad inning mccarver

    • anonymous

      bad isnt the word

    • Bob Stone

      These broadcasters don’t even know baseball terms. A cheapie is when you have an early ten run lead but still give up 8 runs and win. A vulture win is when you come in, give up the lead and then end the inning on a few pitches, and your team scores three runs in the bottom of the inning, and you get the win.

    • Zack

      hes given up 6 runs, if you get a W after giving up 6 runs its a cheap win for the pitcher on his record. just like getting the loss if you give up 1 run over 7-8 is a cheap loss

  • J Squared

    LoL, i don’t know, but this game could be totally different if the ump didnt miss the 1 out 3-2 call on the bases loaded walk… i’m thinkin 2-1 Yankees…

    • Salty Buggah

      not 2-1 maybe 3-2 them but yea that hurt

  • J Squared

    Matt Leinart still alive… i hate that guy.

  • Salty Buggah

    what did Hairston do

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      He dove into the crowd chasing a foul ball.

    • putt

      dived into the stands for a foul ball, but came up empty.

    • Bob Stone

      Made a Jeterian like dive into the stands for a foul ball in left but didn’t get the out.

  • J Squared

    yeah, keep it at 4, cause if you get down 5 runs… you’ll never win… okay Tim… thanks brah.

    oh god

  • Dela G

    another bases loaded walk…

  • Riddering

    Fuckballs.

  • Mike Pop

    Damn, that’s tough.

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

    3-2 count with the bases loaded and two outs against the 9-hitter … just throw it down the damn middle.

    • Salty Buggah

      well he did get squeezed twice

      • Zack

        also loaded the bases twice

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      I think he was trying to. He just couldn’t.

      A.J. Burnett wakes up in the morning at least 2-3 times a year and totally forgets how to throw his pitches. It happens. We’re going to have to learn to live with it.

  • Salty Buggah

    squeezed again

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Sweet Jeebus, A.J. Burnett can go from sparkling to cruddy faster than any pitcher around.

  • stuart

    take him out now..

    2 BOB with the bases loaded to 9th place hitters…

    ugly

    • Salty Buggah

      squeezed twice in this AB and last time

  • J Squared

    hmm… i wish someone would stare down an umpire just one time for the whole walk to the dugout…

  • stuart

    bruney is in can get real ugly fast.

    this again is a angel redo series, cc going to try to salvage the final game….just like against the angels…..

  • Tony B

    he threw 5 strikes to nix only 2 were called

  • Riddering

    I would not like Bruney to give up a homer here.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      You win!

      • Riddering

        YES.

        Do I get a World Series championship or just a flimsy flyball?

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          You get an ARod leadoff double.

          • Riddering

            That’s better.

          • Jose

            But wait, there’s more…

  • Dela G

    what an abortion of a game

  • charlespoet

    Wow, Yanks should just forfeit tomorrow, enjoy the day off and not waste energy playing like crap and getting thumped by the White Sox. Unbelievable that this team went from playing well to looking like they did in april.

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    At least Bruney induced a weak flyball to Steve Swisher to stop the bleeding.

  • J Squared

    What are you guys gonna say if we win?

    “I knew they had it in them the whole time, Walk-Off Kings!!1!1!1111″

      Come on man, use the reply button.

    • GG

      can’t be a walkoff king on the road

      • J Squared

        True, you get the point though.

  • Dela G

    Man Alex is just CRUSHING balls as of late

  • Riddering

    I hate losing but anyone who expected the Yanks to never cool off again after the ASB was just asking to have their heart yanked out, stomped on, and then doused in gasoline only to have a cigarette butt tossed onto it from a passing car.

      Hopefully we never have to play an exhibition against the AAA Colorado Springs Sky Sox.

  • Mike Pop

    I kinda wish McCarver retired…

  • Salty Buggah

    rally starts if Robbie gets a RISP hit here

  • Mike Pop

    Where’s Lil’ Bill?

  • Reggie C.

    We could use a homer right now.

      Maybe he’s really speaking Esperanto and we’re just accidentally mistaking it for English words.

      It probably makes sense in Esperanto, I’m sure of it.

  • Riddering

    Clog those bases, Robbie.

    Why does Danks look like he wants to cry??? What a fag

      That’s a horrible comment. Shame on you.

  • charlespoet

    What the fuck is going on with Posada? He looks like a fucking rookie this series – can’t hit, can’t catch, can’t run the bases….

    • Zack

      did you watch that play?

    • Drew

      Uh, he had to hold up in case it was caught.

    • putt

      he’s one of the worst baserunners in recent history, that’s nothing new. But that’s a tough play there. altho, it was in front of hm, so….

  • Mikebk

    why not pinch hit hinskie and let swish go to first?

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    Cody Ransom’s up. I might as well set myself on fire.

  • putt

    wow, when it rains it pours…

    Why is he letting Ransom hit? Ugh.

    Why no PH?

    No PH for Ransom? FU Girardi.

    yanks have been unlucky, but the white sox are a better team than i thought

    Can we get Brett Tomko to bat for Ransom?

    Ugh… ok this Ransom experiment is done. He just sucks.

  • Mike Pop

    Alright, just let Ransom hit. No prob, G.

  • Accent Shallow

    Cody Ransom is horsecrap. I cannot believe he’s still on the team.

  • JeffG

    Ransom – great! Swish to first Hinske?

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    Ransom flails helplessly away, strikes out. The sky is blue. The grass is green. There is no peace in the Middle East.

  • Riddering

    DIAF, Ransom.

    DFA is too nice a fate.

  • Mikebk

    should have hit hinske and move swisher to first. actually i take that back. should have just started hinske since ransom has struck out in two big spots to end innings.

  • bobmac

    Ransom should be on the train to palookaville by dark.

  • GG

    That was ridiculous, who lets Cody Ransom bat there?????

  • panic button

    I think we all expected ransom to strike out there. Nothing new.
