    ok, CC you blew a 3 run lead and now we got you a lead again…shut em down!

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Too bad CC never wins games with teams above .500 and if he does its a fluke obviously.
      Just like how the Yankees can’t beat good teams.

    From PeteAbe:

    You come to a game expecting to see two lefty aces duel and you get 5-4 in the fourth inning and 17 hits. 17!

    Meanwhile, there is quite the pitcher’s duel in Tampa

    • Zack

      Shields has a no hitter, 80 pitches through 6.2

      • Chris

        Since it’s against the Royals, does it really count as a no hitter?

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

          Yes.

  • Mike Pop

    A buddy of mine just told me that Zach Grienke is not that good, and he only pitches well in bad weather…

    Really?

    I’m looking forward to you leaving when to take the lead and you coming back if they lose it.

    dude, just because you were unloved as a child is no reason to be belligerent and angry at me. If you do not know any cliches that is fine. It was merely a comment not a pulitzer prize dissertation.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Woot!
      So apparently I am not allowed to make my own comments but you are able to freely say in a number of ways on how the Yankees suck?

        and call you unloved as a child. haha.

      • charlespoet

        Precisely. Was part of a new bill in Congress put forth by the GOP.

        But to make you feel better, since the Yankees are up, I will just read your billiant posts and only comment that the Yankees suck when they lose the lead. Oh and just to be sure I am completely on the same page, what Yankees team have you been watching this series? The one I have been watching is the same one that Mike Axisa has mentioned in all his pre and post game posts. But I understand that anyone else can utter the same frustration and it is understood that they are speaking with insight, knowledge, while the more emotional reactions are just “idiots”, “ledge jumpers”, “don’t understand baseball”, etc.

        Oh it must be nice to live on such high ground.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          So to make sure I am getting you right, the Yankees suck for losing 3 games but their previous winning streak and previous series win of the Tampa Bay Rays mean nothing?

          So in short they suck?
          That’s all you need to say.

          • charlespoet

            So in your world does 2+2 = 500?

            I see the error of my way. Even in a 3 game losing streak where they have committed numerous errors, thrown to the wrong base, haven’t hit with RISP, haven’t pitched very well, the use of the work “suck” is really the issue.

            I am soooooooooo sorry. I did not know. It is this new “learn how to speak proper blog English dictionary” that us idiots and illegal immigrants get that is not up to date. Clearly, a 3 game sample like this does not warrant calling out their deficiencies but rather focusing on past performance, because this is merely an aberration and needs no commenting. My humble apologies, oh great Jedi of RAB.

              Shit happens in baseball. It happens to everyone even the all mighty Red Sox. Bitching and complaining over a set of 3 games will help no one and aggravates people. If you think these 3 games will dictate on how the Yankees play baseball t

              And complaining and bitching about the people who try to explain why the Yankees are playing bad claiming their ideas as “cliches” is asking for it.

              And since you like putting words in my mouth I will clarify. I don’t mind a negative attitude about the Yankees should it not involve you acting like you know everything. And since you think everyone will provide “cliches” to their explanations that pisses me off.

    Over/under on Red Sox runs is at 18.

    Over/under on Royals base hits is 1.

    • Whitey14

      I’ll take the over on both. Sox hitting well today and one hiters are tough to come by.

    Ugh, V-Mart just popped up a pitch and it blooped between Roberts and Jones..

    • Zack

      broken bat hit. dave roberts called it a “big hit” from Vmart

      • Whitey14

        It was a big hit since it plated another run. He didn’t say it was a solid hit, which is where he would have been wrong. It actually breaks a long streak of Dave Roberts saying things that are wrong as he’s very terrible in the booth. Sox fans are willing to put up with a lot from him though, for very obvious reasons. Also, Eck is TBS today so he wasn’t an option.

    • Mike Ox

      They are sure clicking right now. The batters anyway.

  • John Duci

    Brian Bannister is what the Yanks need. He’s throwing a good one against the Rays right now.

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

      Several clubs, including the Brewers, Marlins and Yankees, made at late push to acquire right-hander Brian Bannister, but none came close to matching the Royals’ believed asking price of two young pitchers, including one ready-now prospect.

      “There was a lot of interest in our pitchers,” general manager Dayton Moore said, “but we felt it was important to keep our rotation together. Now, if we could trade someone and get a package of good, young players back, we would have considered that.

      “Our goal was to make good baseball deals, and there just weren’t any good fits.”

      The Royals set a stiff price for Bannister, who is 6-7 with a 3.80 ERA, because he won’t be a free agent until after the 2012 season. He is relatively affordable this season with about $650,000 remaining on his $1.7375 million salary.

      http://www.kansascity.com/sports/royals/story/1358344.html

      I like Bannister, but I’m not giving up “two young pitchers, including one ready-now prospect” for him.

      Better than Tim McCarver though, right?

      • JobaWockeeZ

        They are almost as bad. I was in Virginia watching an earlier game vs the Yankees and they SUCK. When Hinske hit that homer they were literally speechless then some base hit by the Sox OMFG WE GOT A HIT WE GOT A HIT!!!! And they abuse “we” like they are in the game.
        But nothing beats Tim McCarver. Unless Ken Rosenthal makes another appearance in Fox, then it’s tied. Joe Buck at a close second.

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

          They also call every player by thier first name or nickname. It’s “Carlos with the catch” or “Run pods! Run!”.

              And Hawk Harrelson used to be the Sox GM. He was hired out of the broadcast booth and during his brief stint running the club, he fired Tony LaRussa and Dave Dombrowski and traded young Bobby Bonilla for Jose DeLeon.

              Can you imagine the Yankees firing Cashman and replacing him with Michael Kay?

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

        It’s close. At least Tim McCarver doesn’t scream “Stretch! Stretch!” at long fly balls or “Get Foul! Get foul!” when a Yankee hits a long fly ball to either corner.

    I hope CC just goes off from here on. I want to see like a 2.00 ERA over the remainder of the season.

    • Zack

      nothing like unrealistic expectations

      • John Duci

        yep, so unrealistic. AJ didnt just have an ERA of close to 2 over the course of the last 2 months so yea your right.

        • Zack

          yes i am right

        • Drew

          It’s an unrealistic expectation, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

    I’d like to see Melky get a harmonica endorsement deal.

      I don’t know why he doesn’t have a Tuscan Farms endorsement package.

    • Dela G

      he needs a mary carey endorsement deal

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

  • GG

    Bannister has shutdown the Rays through 7, woulda been a nice pickup, certainly worth his pricetag

    • JobaWockeeZ

      His pricetag was 2 young pitchers and one almost league ready prospect. Would you do Joba, Hughes and AJax for him?

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

        You read that wrong.

        Two young pitchers, one of the two being almost league ready.

        Bannister’s price would have been probably Kennedy (were he healthy) and one of Nova/Z-Mac/Vizcaino. And that’s too much.

      • GG

        No I wouldnt give any of those pieces, is that what they wanted? I didnt think so, I thought Cash wanted KC to take money and that is what held it up, but I thought the price in terms of prospects was very low. Either way, Cash should be scrambling to get Paul Byrd signed. Not that he’s good, but hes probably better than S Dot Mitre

    • Mike Pop

      Nah, I doubt it. Brian Bannister is solid, I like him but the price tag was two prospects and one mlb ready player as pointed out by Tsjc.

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

        That’s not what the article said. Please read carefully, people.

        “…two young pitchers, including one ready-now prospect…”

        That’s two players, not three.

        • Mike Pop

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Depends on what they asked for

  • gio

    I’d love to see Melky continue his hot streak to keep Gardner on the bench when he comes back. I know you never jeopardize the starting 9 to improve the bench, but he’s so valuable as a pinch runner that if Melky stays hot, you have to keep Gardner as the 4th OF. A bench of Hinske, Hairston, Gardner, and Molina is the best we’ve had in almost a decade.

  • Dela G

    good eye alex

  • Ivan

    Williams is really flirting with danger here.

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

    Man, Buch can’t even do enough to get the W today.

      now that’s ace material

        He is up by 2 strokes. Guy in second is finished for the day and the 3rd place golfer is 4 strokes behind.

  • John Duci

    I dont understand the broken clock is right twice a day. Can someone explain please lol

    • Luthien

      It means a clock that says 12:00 on it without AM or PM. So that would mean it is right at midnight and at noon.

    • handtius

      noon and midnight.

    • Dela G

      are you serious?

      if its stuck at 1:00, it is right at 1PM and 1AM

      • Dela G

        sorry, i shouldnt have been so mean

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

        Maybe he’s got a Casio digital watch that includes the “AM/PM” readout.

        In that case, no, it technically wouldn’t be right twice a day.

    Yanks allow Chisox to stay in the game. Gotta take advantage of 3 walks with 1 out.

  • Steve H

    Schilling on the radio Thursday was asked if Bustholz would be a 12-15 game winner or if he thought he’d put it together and become a 20 game winner. Schilling said neither, he’s not even sure he’ll become a 12-15 game winner. I know it’s still a SSS, but the guy is almost 25 and clearly has some issues. I hate Schilling, but man I hope he’s right.

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

      But… but… he threw a NO-HITTAH!!

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

      You misheard. Schilling was saying he’d probably only win 12 games each MONTH.

        All 12 months of the year too.

        • Mike Pop

          Woot. good shit CC

  • Pasqua

    Courtesy of Pete:

    Robbie Cano without runners in scoring position: 101 of 288 (.351)

    Robbie Cano with runners in scoring position: 26 of 128 (.203).

    That differential is truly unbelievable.

    • Steve H

      Should have him bat leadoff.

      • Pasqua

        No thanks. He doesn’t get on base enough (i.e., not enough walks). His OBP was .342 going into today, vs. Jeter’s .397. This is just the cross Robbie has to bear for now.

      • JMK

        Not a very good runner.

    • Little Bill

      Abraham’s trash. Cano lines out twice with men in scoring position and he gets bashed. Jeter lines out and Pete makes sure to point out that he’s got unlucky. One minute Pete says CC stands for Complete Catastrophe and that he’s been bad, the next he says CC has gotten the job done all day. Guy’s an idiot.

      • Pasqua

        Yeah, but it doesn’t change that BA with RISP for Cano.

      • Frank

        Pete’s actually correct about Cano and CC. Why are you hating on the guy?

  • Ivan

    You know what sad folks, Jim Rice in the HOF despite his #’s is not better than Bernie Williams.

    Rice: .298/.381/.502 with an OPS+ 0f 128 and overall OPS .852
    Williams: .297/.381/.477 With an OPS+ of 125 and overall OPS of .858

    Amazing.

    • Steve H

      One was a gold glove CF, the other was an atrocious LF who was about league average on the road with the bat.

    • YankeeScribe

      Bernie gets overlooked because he played in “the steroid era”

      • Pasqua

        Nah…those numbers aren’t impressive enough for him to pitch the 7th, which we all know is where you have to put your most promising pitchers. It is the most important inning, after all.

    • http://www.twitter.com/wahbjo01 Jordan

      That’s just Buchholz establishing his underdog qualities. Next stage is grit. Then championship calibre. Then 12 Cy Young awards.

    So Girardi says that Phil Hughes is “too important to the bullpen” to be moved out of it.

    Even though Joba Chamberlain is going to be moved into it.

    Hughes locking down the 8th = Chamberlain locking down the 8th

    Both Hughes and Joba in the bullpen together is a poor allocation of resources.

    • Ivan

      Yeah exactly.

      It just another reason y Hughes SHOULD be starting.

    • Riddering

      This is one time I’d like the organization to lie so long as they are stating Hughes is to be kept in the pen.

    • Tom Zig

      yeah our bullpen would be really awesome, but our rotation would be pretty beat sauce. Hughes (preferably) or Aceves have to go to the rotation.

    • Drew

      Well, Joe’s just humoring the redundant media and their questions. There’s so many “unforeseen” things that can happen that would open Hughes’s spot in the rotation, not including Joba. Marte, Bruney, Ace, if these guys show they can be solid in those late innings, Hughes isn’t necessarily as important there as he is now.
