    Lets hope that the Yankees stop making Smoltz look like the Smoltz(or Schmoltz if your O’Neill) of 1996 in the third.

  • Drew

    Let’s hope it doesn’t end 1-0. 2nd time around I hope Smoltz gets the ruckus.

  • Souter Fell

    Alright, let’s go. Cap’n show us the way.

  • Nick

    I’ve always wondered why innings and not pitches thrown?

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    Probably not, no.

    Joba’s thrown too many pitches on a night the yanks have Melancon/Claggett/Bruney as their go-to Bullpen guys.

  • Alex S

    it will end 1-0
    NOT!

  • Bob Stone

    Thanks for the new thread. This one is moving much faster.

  • Riddering

    Runs please, Yankee offense? Yes? Hello?

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    After Youk walked that was the first time in a while I actually pussied out. Nice to see roids hit into a DP.

  • Desus

    Anybody on Directv have their signal go out? Not a cloud in the sky either. This bites.

  • Souter Fell

    Close, dammit!

  • J Squared

    Guess Ellsbury just likes getting down on his knees… no need for it there.

  • j

    anyone have directtv?! wtf my signal is fuckin out!

    • JobaWockeeZ

      I have Fios and it fucked out on me.

    • Alex S

      Yah, I’m watching it on the YES feed. It’s good. I’m in Cali, though.

    I almost got sick when I saw Posada’s play at home…..WTF ?

  • Riddering

    I am filled with so much hate.

    /Skywalkers

  • charlespoet

    looks like new game, but old joba. at this rate yanks will need 7 runs to win.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    a) i love it when you call out big pa-pi
    b) joba’s ok kids…let’s all take a deep breath
    c) its 1 run, and its new yankee stadium
    d) we’ve got many more innings
    e) smoltz is old
    f) their pen is smoked
    g) pain is temporary
    h) chicks dig scars

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Doesn’t matter. We lost the game! One run is soooooooo hard to catch up. Just forget about it. The Yankees will always be winless!!

  • Charlie

    i’m still pissed about that fuckin play at home. its hilarious that singleton and oneil were making excuses for jorge and blaming melky. jorge wasn’t running hard, wasn’t paying attention to the play, and you always slide into home unless you’re sure you’re safe. a pretty bad fucking way to lose a run

  • Albert = Machine

    Posada is the new A-Rod aka an excuse for when something goes wrong.

    • lilstevie

      not an excuse for anything ….that was a wussy play…..slide

  • J Squared

      This is why people hate Yankee fans – it’s a tie game. Wait till the Yanks win before gloating on their blogs.

  • Salty Buggah

    damn, hit it hard but not enough…we’re getting to him now hopefully

  • Riddering

    Let’s give Joba a lead, motherfuckas!

  • BigBlueAL

    When I ump a little league game where the pitcher is just throwing bloopers over the plate I always joke with the other ump that the kid isnt pitching he is praying. Praying every time he throws a pitch that it isnt smoked somewhere.

    Tonight Smoltz isnt pitching, he is praying….

  • Yankee1010

    They’re on him now. Hopefully, they open the game up big time soon and let Joba relax and let the other guys in the pen get at it.

  • Souter Fell

    Bullshit.

  • pat

    Fucking terrible call blue. You’re NOT my boy.

  • Yankee1010

    Not even close to going around. Completely changes the at-bat.

  • paulc

    jorge’s play was unexcusable. period. not melky’s fault whatsoever…that was weak ass…he cannot defend that at all…he does need to redeem himself…and quickly…

    It’s OK, shut em down and we’ll get em next time

    Alex has hit so many balls hard this year but a lot haven’t landed, I hope his luck turns soon (next AB)

  • Accent Shallow

    So, Mr. Chamberlain, mind settling down and at least getting through 6?

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

    Holy range to your left Jetes.

    • Bob Stone

      How about to his RIGHT?

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

        I meant my left.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    I thought that throw was going into the stands. It would if Giambi was still there.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Would’ve been awesome if Tex applied that behind the back in the air tag and got him out.

  • Riddering

    Ugh, that was disgunstingly close.

    • Riddering

      Only the BoSox could make me spell so awfully.

  • Accent Shallow

    Jetes, maybe you could set and throw next time? Mike Lowell is roughly Molina-speed.

  • Dorian

    I have said it before and I will say it again. You cannot live on the outside part of the plate all day long with good hitters. Every hard hit ball in this game has been due to Posada insisting upon fastballs on the outside corner. These guys are good hitters and you just do them a favor when you put it there. Pitch inside.

  • dkidd

    if joba has to come out because of pitch cpunt, who pitches the 6th?

  • EB

    Joba just cant get Pedroia or Lowell out

  • Stryker

    motherfucking red sox.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    first thing i read @ over the monster:

    “Hating the New York Yankees is as American as apple pie, unwed mothers and cheating on your income tax.” —

  • Hova

    Wow. That should not have been a HR. That was the stadium. No freaking way.

  • wtf

    Worst homer I’ve seen EVER!

  • Accent Shallow

    Are you freaking kidding me, Joba? Christ.

  • wtf

    Worst homer I’ve seen! EVER!

  • YankeeScribe

    Casey Kotchman? Really?

  • BigBlueAL

    This is a joke.

    • Hova

      The stadium is a joke. I hope the Steinbrenners were watching that one. Hopefully they don’t need a bigger sample to figure out something is definitely wrong.

      • EB

        Pedroia’s dinger was his first career Opp field homer….

  • charlespoet

    Yep, same joba. Can’t handle the pressure. Fuck.

    • pat

      riiight.

      • Mike Pop

        No Pat, that is the reason.

    • Hova

      Calm down dude. That HR was a cheap one. Other than that, he’s been fine. The Yankees will put some back on the board. Book it.

    • Luis Polonia

      Yeah, he really folded under the pressure of that series-deciding game against the Rays. What a choke artist.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Huh? When couldn’t he handle the pressure?

      • Mike Pop

        The playoffs against Cleveland!!!!

    • Riddering

      You’re right.

      Like his last outing? When he couldn’t handle the pressure of the super-offense the Rays have?

      Yeah, Joba just can’t get it done.

  • Riddering

    Life just lost all meaning.

  • DreDog

    Shoot man. Just when I thought Joba to the 8th was dead.

  • Souter Fell

    If only we could pitch to Lowrie everytime.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    …ok…dont ever leave this blog. ever.

    there are some dirty nasty ignant blogs out there, and i feel so dirty i’m going to go take a shower and eat some ice cream…

    the one pearl of wisdom i saw:

    I’m going to be laying off the ARoid jokes till Saturday…

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Like LoHud? Seriously Red Sox blogs are more stand-able than LoHud.

  • Dorian

    As long as they continue to pound pitches on the outside corner, This is Jorge’s fault. Joba is throwing to the spot and guys are either going the other way or trying to hook it like Lowell and Kotchman just did. If you do not make them respect the inside pitch, there is nothing you can do against these guys.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Joba isn’t controlling any of his breaking stuff. They are going to sit inside fastball, and then they wont be ballpark aided homers.

  • Ron

    This park is a joke

  • ShuutoHeat

    I wonder how often Ellsbury waxes his eyebrows…

  • Hi, I’m Jerry, this is my associate Cornelius

    IHATEBOSTON

  • Tony

    So the Red Sox have 3 runs on

    1. The first opposite field home run of GGDP’s life

    2. A soft liner to right field.

    Fix this damn stadium

  • J Squared

    The fact that someone can blame Joba for those 2 horrible homeruns… you don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    I won’t even fault Joba with that one. That line drive was going out of this park regardless.

    • yankees boy

      it’s not joba’s fault kotchman hit it hard, right….. moron.

  • Souter Fell

    C’mon guys. The kid needs the confidence that a big inning can give him if we want him to make it through the 6th.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    We need two more innings from Joba.

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

      With the way he’s pitching, we need 2 more inning from somebody else.

  • yankees boy

    too bad they’re not going to “fix” this stadium cause they keep losing to the sox. didn’t see anyone complain after damon’s homerun.

    • J Squared

      you’re on a yankees website.

      • yankees boy

        it’s the same park for both pitchers. stop making excuses for joba. the ball kotchman hit wouldve been a double anyway – so 2nd and 3rd no out = they’re still going to score.

        • Mike Pop

          Fallacy of the predetermined outcome.

          I could care less, a hr is a hr in this ballpark. Can’t bitch bout it, like Drew said below. We’ve seen plenty.

    • Tony

      The Boston HRs made Damon look like 98 McGwire.

  • Russell NY

    Step right up! Put a crap hitter on the Sox and he is an All-Star against the Yankees! Step right up!

  • charlespoet

    Actually as I am now able to see the HR, not Joba. Retract my over reaction. Just a shitty capitalist built park. Well done Greedy Yankee bras

  • Souter Fell

    Redemption time please.

  • Souter Fell

    Get him home!

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

    Five of the last six batters have hit absolute rockets off Schmoltz.

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      just when i think you can’t be any dumber…

  • Riddering

    Seriously, no one can shit on Joba for that inning. A ridiculous line drive followed by getting out the 9-1-2 hitters–the latter is more indicative of Joba’s mettle than the former.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Paul O’Niell

    SLIDE into 2nd Jorge.

      • manimal

        I locked my self in my room and I’m listening to gameday audio while mlaying some SNES on my computer.

  • Dorian

    Could we please stop talking about the stadium. No one was complaining when we bash the ball over the wall. Everyone gets the same opportunity to do so.

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      yeah but we get to go last…who cares, as long as we hit the last dinger in the bottom of the ninth.

      and we also sign usain bolt.

    • Tony

      I don’t “complain,” no. I laugh because it’s equally ridiculous. They are all an insult to the game of baseball.

      I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. The current configuration of this park is equivalent to having a lotto drawing for free runs during the 7th inning stretch. Wrap your head around that.

  • Souter Fell

    There you go JD, show this old MFer how it really is.

  • Souter Fell

    C’mon Tex, upper deck time.

  • Mike Pop

    John Schmoltz was the best signing of the offseason, remember.

    Why not put him in the pen?

    Lol @ Billy Traber.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Lol Greenie

  • ShuutoHeat

    Lol there’s not much of a breathing room on this lineup for Traber to step in from the pen.

  • Souter Fell

    Damon try running?

    • J Squared

      not hwne a guy can’t throw strikes.

    They’re ripping Smoltz with no vaseline now

    • Russell NY

      Some of the comments on here are outrageous. This is among the best.

  • Riddering

    When did Nick Green enter the game?

    • Bob Stone

      In the bottom of the 4th.

    Bring on Traber!!

  • J Squared

    GET SOME!!!!

  • Accent Shallow

    Alright A-Rod, time to give Joba a cushion.

  • handtius

  • Drew

    I thought that shit was gone. W2G Teixy

  • putt

    C’mon Arod…I want a “meaningless” HR right now!

    • putt

      PU$$IES!

  • ShuutoHeat

    Was Drew skipping for that one? LOL

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Thanks JD! I think you got a scratch while trying to catch that DL Time!

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

    Shmoltz getting clobbered 2nd time through the lineup.

  • Salty Buggah

    Cmon guys more bombs

  • Souter Fell

    C’mon Godzilla.

  • Yankees_Universe

    This is nice..hopefully Joba and whoever else is going to pitch for Yankees don’t let us down for the rest of the game..

    • putt

      There’s the positivity we’re looking for!

  • Riddering

    A-Rod, deep.

    Deep, A-Rod.

    Now get it!

    • Riddering

      Damn, that’s no fun.

    Billy Traber warming up…

    This is priceless.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Fuck then up Matsui, they insulted your honor now be a Japanese samurai and pretend the ball is Smoltz’s head!

  • manimal

    Break it opem Matsui!

  • Accent Shallow

    Did he just yank Smoltz? After 3 1/3?

    Wooooooo. Soft underbelly of the pen!

  • ShuutoHeat

    Alright alright, gather round.
    How many innings do you think Traber will last?
    Or do you think they’re going to let him pitch till his arm falls off?

    • Eric

      The Billy Traber era in Boston begins.

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

    The depth! It is unbeatable!

    /joke that’s probably been made 100 times already.

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

    Agree with Kay there. As much fun as it is to have the bases loaded and a 5-3 lead, its tough to watch one of the classiest, best pitchers of his generation at the end of the line.

    • Mike Pop

      Eh, he’s an enemy now.

      He’s got enough knob jobs past couple months.

  • Souter Fell

    Let’s pack em on here. No matter how they’ve looked, don’t like leaving close BOS/NYY to the bp.

  • Accent Shallow

    Anyone remember Billy Traber’s Yankee tenure? It would have gotten more play if 2008 Hughes/Kennedy hadn’t been so terrible.

  • ShuutoHeat

    ….Did Smoltz just shed a tear? I almost feel sorry for him..

    ..
    ..

    SYKE.

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

      When they showed Varitek sitting on the bench during the intros, I thought he was going to cry.

  • J Squared

    Traber looks like my neighbor…

    • pat

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    i can hear sterling’s call already…

    Its an A-bomb…from…(awkward silence)

    GO GO GODZILLA!!!

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    LOL @ Traber’s pitching motion.

  • Accent Shallow

    Time to break it open. I want Claggett pitching the last three innings for a Wes Littleton save.

  • Yankees_Universe

    You think Gammons and Olney are already busy trying to explain the the disaster named John Smoltz?

    • Mike Pop

      Gammmons prediction: Smoltz will be the best pitcher in baseball down the stretch.

  • charlespoet

    See you guys need me to complain because everytime I do, the Yankees respond!

  • manimal

    The gameday live look in is ahead of my tv…

  • Souter Fell

    What i wouldn’t do for 2+ runs here

  • adeel

    Kinda OT, but relevant to many people out there.

    I live out of market. I bought mlb.com, bought mlb extra innings; I even sent e-mails to random yankee people asking how to get my yankee fix. Well all the above is just horrible to put it mildly.

    I got slingbox, set it up at my parent’s house (in NY) and while it’s not yeshd, it definitely better than the other options out there.

    1) you get yes, my9, every yankee game
    2) you get all the other programming that person subscribes to.

    some caveats;
    1) of course you need to know someone in the YES broadcast area; have them add an extra box ($5.00/month) so your not interrupting their broadcast
    2) The slingbox has a onetime charge of $200; no monthly fee.

    So far I have been using this to watch every yankee game this year on a 56 inch flatscreen. It’s not great, but it’s not too shabby. Also, I believe this is legit (please correct me if I am wrong). I also have mlb.com, but I find that after a few innings the quality starts dropping out, and I don’t get to see the pre-game post game stuff.

    • Yankees_Universe

      get sling box and free dyanmic alias updater..you will get a URL which is good from anywhere and not have to worry about the ip change..if your parents have one of the newer tvs connect it using hdmi cable and connect sling box using regular a/v (R/Y/B) cables..that way you won’t pay extra $5/month…

  • J Squared

    SAFE!

    Hustledeki!

  • Alex S

    kay getting on the shmoltz train

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Matsui beats a throw!!

  • E-ROC

    Nice hustle by Matsui.

  • Accent Shallow

    Not ideal, but that’s better than nothing. See if Jorge can atone for his lack of baserunning skills earlier.

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

    Heh, Kay finally pointed out the “Shmoltz” thing.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Phew. Good hustle.

  • manimal

    Its amazing how fast you are with surgically repaired knees… :|

  • Souter Fell

    Not that he did anything wrong, but playing Boston, I want all slides into 2nd to look like angry Tex.

    Can we have Jorge get thrown out at home in the beginning of every game.?

  • handtius

    That…was…a…bomb.

  • Souter Fell

    EVERYBODY HITS!!!

  • YankeeScribe

    Funkin A. If they find a way to lose this game, I’m done with baseball for this season

    • cor shep

      way to be positive..

  • manimal

    Nick swisher owes Posada some Rocky Road Redemption

  • J Squared

    our outs aren’t even cheap

  • JobaWockeeZ

  • whozat

    What happened to Lowrie? Foul one off himself?

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Traber is really boring to watch, but so funnn to hit off of!

  • Souter Fell

    Knock it off and pitch. No ones comin to help ya.

    Just switched to NESN, this is fun

  • manimal

    Its only the 4th inning….. save some runs for tomorrow.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Boston caught up from a 6 run deficit against Burnett. You can never score too many runs.

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    But…but…the Boston pitching!!1one!

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

    I swear, if Melky hits two homers in the same inning from different sides of the plate…

    • handtius

      Will you cry and confess your loyalty to the Leche?

    • Drew

      What? You’ll officially join my Melky fanclub?

  • J Squared

    a never ending game of Boston getting an ass kicking.

  • Souter Fell

    Is it just me or is YES out of focus a lot tonight.

    • Drew

      not you, i thought i needed glasses for a minute.

  • NYQ

    I bet the Red Sox wish they had Anthony Clagett.

  • putt

    Farrell: Hey Billy, here’s the bad news. We’re leaving you in to take it in the can and completely destroy your era for the year. The good news? You don’t have to wax Youkilis’s back tonight, we got Reddick on the shuttle from Pawtucket.
