  • Accent Shallow

    I was listening on the radio, but I turned it off in frustration after the bomb to Thome. Glad Sabathia got his shit together and battled back to have an acceptable start.

      “This chipotle cheese steak sandwich is so big, it’s like beating ‘you know who’ big.”

      How would CC know what it’s like to beat the Sawx as a Yankee?

          Are you suggesting that CC likes to bless the alter boy?

  • Drew

    I don’t understand why so many yankee fans have a problem with Hawk. Dude’s a regular ChiSox fan, he just also happens to call their games.

    • Little Bill

      Because he’s extremely annoying. Why can’t he try to be objective? “HE GONE!” When the opposing team hits a HR, he doesn’t say anything. He’ll mumble “that’s trouble” and then it’s dead silence. He’s an awful, awful announcer.

      • Drew

        Word, but he’s extremely annoying to you or me, because we’re not sox fans. Obviously it sucks if you’re subjected to their broadcast.

    • V

      Um, no. He’d be a Yankees fan if he were still broadcasting for them. Or a Red Sox fan if he were still broadcasting for them.

      • Drew

        Um, okay. He’s been there for 20 years, are you saying he’s not a ChiSox fan?

    • Accent Shallow

      How is a regular fan calling games listenable? Could you imagine someone here calling a game?

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

        Yeah, I’d be full of inhuman yelps and groans during the course of a game.

      • Mike Pop

        “Alex strikes out on a 68 mph fastball down the middle. Was the nastiest pitch I’ve ever seen.

        Cano strikes out on a 82 mph fastball right down the middle. Just sat in the middle of the plate, very unexpected pitch so Cano couldn’t do anything about it. Nasty pitch selection.”

      • Drew

        Haha, tbh it would sound exactly like Hawk, that’s why I don’t have a problem with it.

      • Arman Tamzarian

        It’s just a routine, it’s not as if he’s up there bashing the opposing team for the whole game. He makes a few remarks here and there, adds some color to the game.

      • Mac

        I guess everyone here is too young to remember when Hawk was a Yanks broadcaster.

        He’s an odd guy, he used to tell a story that when he played, he had 9 pairs of cleats that he would polish to a high shine and change them each inning so he always had a fresh pair on.

    • Riddering

      Hawk is the Glenn Beck of baseball announcers.

      Every team should have a problem with him.

    • Ivan

      Cuz there’s something called professionalism. Doesn’t mean ur a fan of the team ur covering doesn’t mean you gotta be that damn bias. Vin Scully would love for the Dodgers to win every single game or even every single inning, but he knows he has to be fair.

    • TheLastClown

      It’s his enthusiasm. *Side-note, in the late 1800’s, enthusiastic was synonymous with fanatical, approaching insanity.*

      But his enthusiasm is reserved for the Sox. He calls the game to a bare minimum for half of it, the “villainous” half. And he goes into a tizzy every time the ChiSox do anything. It’s hard to take him seriously.

      Plus he deals in bygone parlance, at least to a coastal persons perspective.

      Also, it sounds to me like he is the grandpa who comes to all the little league games & gets really emotional about it. But the little league team in question isn’t a little league team at all. It causes me a little cognitive dissonance.

  • Pasqua

      I don’t think Youk gets there.

      • Albert = Machine

    Was that a cutter?

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

      Yes indeed.

      • Mike Pop

        Ya, they called it a slider. He doesn’t throw a slider, you silly announcers.

        • TheLastClown

          Didn’t he used to, but put it on the shelf in AA-ish? I think that slider morphed into an Al Leiter style cutter.

      just went to the left

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

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

    I usually never complain about going to Mo, but really? Show some confidence in the kid.

    • Drew

      Eh, Hughes knows Joe has confidence in him. We lost 3 in a row, we need the W, let’s go to Mo.

    • Moshe Mandel

      Disagree. Mo hasn’t pitched in 3 days, off day tomorrow, go to your best pitcher once you deem him available. Hughes walked a guy, and lets be honest, he struck out Konerko but got away with two pitches where he missed badly.

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

      Maybe Girardi’s reverse-stretching him out to transition him into a ROOGY role.

    • BklynJT

      Now let’s score some runs to put this game out of reach.

    • Pasqua

      I have no problem bringing in Mo in the 8th, but I do have a problem with the fact that all we hear about is how important and crucial Hughes is to the bullpen, yet it seems that in these types of games he’s going to get lifted for Mo.

      This, then, really IS a waste of Hughes’s arm. He could add so much to the rotation with his stuff (theoretically), yet the team is content to let him dominate for 2 outs in a big spot? It doesn’t make sense, especially considering the rotation issues that are soon to face them.

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

        Good point.

  • charlespoet

    Phil Hughes = Tiger Woods of Yankee’s rotation.

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

            Yup. As long as Hughes remains in the 8th inning, he’s no better than the 6th best pitcher on the team. Behind CC, AJ, Joba, Pettitte, and Mo.

            • Accent Shallow

              Even stuff-wise, out of those five, he’s probably only better than Andy.

      Don’t we always talk about going to your best pitcher when the game is on the line?

      • Frank

        I get that, but there’s going be a time in this same situation when Mo isn’t avaialable.

  • baravelli

    I just wanted to chime in on the subject of Hawk Harrelson, if I may: The reason that he is an embarrassingly atrocious announcer is not simply that he explicitly roots for the White Sox, or even that he does so with enthusiasm. It’s that he roots out loud on the air *instead of doing play-by-play.* That’s what’s so grating. He makes no attempt to add any information or expertise or drama to the broadcast, he just cheers for what he wants to happen. It’s just incompetent. Here’s my evidence that I’m being objective: Probably my favorite non-YES broadcast team was Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo for the Red Sox on NESN. They made no absolutely no secret that they were for the Sox, but they still respected the idea of being professionals and giving a performance. It’s the difference between watching a game with your friend who happens to root for the other team but is otherwise a good and knowledgeable baseball fan, and watching the game with a drunken lout at a sports bar who is just screaming to hear his own voice.
    Hawk is a disgrace.

    • Tony

      Remy and Orsillo are… not good. The Mets have excellent announcers. The Yankees and Red Sox have blowhards and homers.

      • Little Bill

        Yeah, but do they shout “GET DOWN! GET DOWN!” when a White Sox player hits a line drive in front of an outfielder? He does this the whole game while going silent and mumbling when the opposing team does something good. Hawk is a disgrace.

    • Mike Pop

      Thank you, Captain Obvious.

      What so impressive is that usually the triple is the hardest one to get and he got it.

      Ivan the Terrible, ladies and gentlemen.

  • acb

    i dont get why u pinch hit hairston but not ransom yesterday

    • BklynJT

      Maybe he learned his lesson. At least he didn’t pinch hit hairston with Ransom!

    • Tony

      Because brings a rare combination of grit and athleticism that Girardi just can’t quit.

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

        Nick Green?

        • Tony

          Nick Green substitutes all of the athleticism with SLIGHT abilities to hit and field. These are minor attributes in a baseball player. Almost a detriment to grit, really.

  • Dela G

    nice CYCLE! MELK MAN!

  • Salty Buggah

    damn, Jorge is slumping badly…all he had to do was get the ball in the air

    Awesome hit and run. Big insurance run.

  • Frank

    That was huge. Jeets come through again.

  • Stryker

    congrats to melky. what a fucking game!

  • Salty Buggah

    Nice job Jete…pad the lead and Melky’s stats!

  • Riddering

    Captain Clutch!

  • Kyle R.

    Is it just me or has Yes’s camera work been really shoddy this series? I’m guessing they weren’t able to get great camera positionings at US Cellular…

  • Zack

    Youk strikes out, ends that reaching base streak he had going. VMart is now 5-6 (1 2B, 4 singles)

    • Zack

      Red Sox have 20+ hits, Ortiz is 0-5, ha.

      • Albert = Machine

        Taking steroids on a Sunday is a sin. Duh!

  • Accent Shallow

    Gameday says the new pitcher is erstwhile Yankee farmhand Jhonny Nunez!

  • Salty Buggah

    Nunez??? Isnt that who we traded Swisher for?

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Yup

      • Arman Tamzarian

        with Betemit and Marquez, go ahead and take a look at Marquez numbers, Cashman cleaned up

        • Zack

          traded all that for a 4th OF?

          /kidding

        • Accent Shallow

          Poor Marquez, I was rooting for him. He’s at 14.2 H/9, and 2.4 HR/9. Man’s supposed to be a groundball pitcher!

    • whozat

      Apparently.

    • Dela G

      yes

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

      Well, it’s probably more accurate to say we traded him for Kanekoa Texeira. It was a 3 for 2, but it was probably effectively a 2 for 1 (Betemit and Marquez for Swisher) and the additional 1-for-1 swap of Nunez and Texeira was the last little nudge that put it over the top.

      But I’m splitting imaginary theoretical hairs here.

  • claybeez

    Great call on the hit and run, since it seems like Jeter hits so many grounders to short. Not sure if that’s proven statistically. If so, might be something to consider in the future.

    • whozat

      He hits a lot of grounders in general. Not a bad idea to put the hit and run on with Jeter at the plate regardless.

  • Riddering

    Kay, no Jhonny vs. Johnny commentary?

    I’m ashamed!

  • Accent Shallow

    Somehow, I don’t think Mo needs a three run lead against Nix-Castro-Podsednik.

  • Salty Buggah

    all fastballs?

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Just got home from some social madness. Melkman hit the cycle???

    • Bob Stone

      He did.

      • LiveFromNewYork

        wow. nice job Melkman.

    • Drew

      yezzir

  • whozat

    what is kay talking about, this harmonica thing?

    • Bob Stone

      Lind and Yogi had a fight after the game when Lind played the harmonica after getting swept four games straight in 1964.

    • Dela G

      its a story from when the white sox last swept the yanks in a 4 game series in 1964

  • Salty Buggah

    Orioles need a touchdown to tie…

    • Zack

      and 2 pt conversion

    • Drew

      touchdown and the 2 pt conversion you mean?

    • Salty Buggah

      ooh they just scored #18, they were at 17 when I posted that

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

    Hmm, and that pitch was where?

  • charlespoet

    drill him Mo

    • Accent Shallow

      He’s the least likely pitcher on the team to throw at somebody.

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

        He’s not a hot-tempered, vengeful, Old Testament Mo. He’s the benevolent, forgiving, peaceful New Testament Mo.

  • Salty Buggah

    Mo got squeezed but still got him out…nice

  • BklynJT

    Dear A.J. Pierzynski,

    I hate you and your grimey cheatin ways.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    What in the name of Mo? I blame Posada.

  • Dela G

    holy shit a 4 pitch walk by rivera

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      2 of those 4 balls should have been called strikes

      • Dela G

        agreed

  • Riddering

    Damn, Mo. Why you gotta play us this way?

  • Salty Buggah

    Is it just me or is Mo getting seriously squeezed? Two of those balls were strikes…I hate umpires

  • Tony

    Uh-oh, GGGB at the plate.

  • Accent Shallow

    Yay Mo! Yay win!

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    GAME OVAAA YANKEES WIN

    Still in first place, now let’s start a new win streak!

  • Dela G

    BALL GAME OVER!

  • Tom Zig

    Melky hit the laziest cycle in the history of baseball.

    This is my favorite part of being a Yankees fan. The Melky/Cano interviews.

    Kim Jones asks one question. Melky speaks. Cano answers confused; a totally different generic question.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      I know.

      KJ: Melky what was going through your head?

      Robby: beisbol has been berry gut to me.

    • Riddering

      I’ve always assumed that Melky’s answers are too foul to be repeated so Cano has to quick come up with something to say to Kim Jones.

  • Tom Zig

    Does anyone on here speak spanish/read lips that can tell me what melky shouted when he made it to third?

    • LiveFromNewYork

      He said hows the thumb Gardy?

    • ranger11

      Cocksuckers?

    Kim Jones: So Melky, what’s it like to hit for the cycle?
    Melky: (says something in spanish)
    Robbie: He said “Stop living in the 1980’s and take off that ugly ass blouse, woman.”

    Melky’s lack of comfort with English didn’t stop him from banging Mary Carey. Interesting.

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

      Mary Carey barely speaks English herself.

      • LiveFromNewYork

        I don’t think speaking comes into play much.

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

          I’m just saying, compared to the other guys in the circles she runs in, Melky Cabrera is practically William Shakespeare.

          • LiveFromNewYork

            Melky the Bard.

      • Salty Buggah

        True, she just sucks…

    • Mike

      Your stupidity really knows no bounds.

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

    Good job, Yanks. Glad they could get a win.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    If/When Tampa Bay beats the Sox, and if/when we beat the Royal, we are in a great position going into the Boston-NY series.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Melky kept saying he was just grateful to play every day. Nice to keep it humble.

  • YankeeScribe

    Did Melky hit for the cycle?

    • Dela G

      yes he did

  • Salty Buggah

    Rays lost too!

    • Zack

      no hit the other team trhough 7 then lose, that sucks

      • Salty Buggah

        not for us ;)

  • Tom Zig

    another come from behind victory?

    • Salty Buggah

      yep

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

      Yup. Yankees and “coming from behind” go together like Melky Cabrera and Mary Carey.

      BOOOOOM, THAT JUST HAPPENED.

    NO mention of Melky

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