• J Squared

    FUCK!

  • acb

    girardi is such a genius

  • paulc

    what hap? somebody fill me in…what the heck/…

  • Russell NY

    Boy that was dumb. And remember what happened yesterday when Posada made a dumb move not to slide? Next batter up for Boston hit a homerun………

  • Chip

    Yeah I put Pena in there no questions asked. He at least would be on second with no outs. It’s also hard to justify the hit and run with the slow Matsui out there when you’re so close to getting Beckett out of the game

    • DGeezy

      pena isnt gardner, that isnt an automatic stolen base

      • Hova

        On retarded Varitek it is

      • Zack

        doesnt Varitek have a 13% CS rate?

  • Hova

    No way Joe gave Matsui a steal sign there. Not even on Varitek. Had to be part of a hit and run.

  • paulc

    you gotta play small ball some times…PR, bunt him over…oh well..keep battling…

  • Russell NY

    If we get through this inning unscathed I have a good feeling about winning. This is important here.

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

    Relax, botched hit-and-run.

    I’m really hyper. Because. ZOMG. Montero.

    • Riddering

      You must become BFF with Jesus so we can all party with him.

  • Riddering

    If you’re going to send the runner, make sure he’s not Matsui circa 2009.

  • acb

    still though girardi has made a couple questionable decisions this game

    my heart just stopped

  • dre

    even a hit and run is a stupid call..matsui cannot run!!!!!! brilliant girardi…Brilliant

  • Manimal

    Holy foul ball.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    OMFG

  • Drew

    In Girardi’s defense, Cano doesn’t K. I’m just fucking pissed Ajax isn’t here. No one on our roster can steal a base straight up.

    Great fucking call Kay. IT ISSSSSSSSSSSS……………………….. foul

    • AJ

      I understand Ajax has great speed, but bringing him up to be a baserunner in late game situations isn’t going to help his overall development. Plus, the guy hasn’t been stellar in AAA at the plate.

      • Drew

        Don’t forget he could play defense too. Don’t tell me playing in this series or being here for 2 weeks while Grit is out will effect his development.

        • Ed

          Remember what happened when Melky got rushed to the majors and got thrown into a Red Sox series? That was really, really, really ugly. Let’s not repeat that.

  • Dela G

    WOW

    i almost had a heart attack

    • acb

      i just had a heart attack

  • Cokie

    This game has July 1, 2004 written all over it.

    • Cokie

      Would have been nice to have Hughes or Mo in extras.

  • AJ

    My heart literally jumped into my throat there.

    Jesus Christ.

  • toad

    That is just idiocy. Either run for Matsui or don’t try the hit-and-run. WTF is going on in Girardi’s brain?

  • J Squared

    ………………….

  • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

    HOLY JESUS Montero that scared me.

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

    Oh thank you Mo.

  • Pasqua

    You could hear the air being sucked out of the stadium on that (gulp) foul ball.

  • Souter Fell

    Jebus!

  • Russell NY

    Boston has gone into foul-off-pitches mode. This is where they do the small ball and take the lead unfortunately =(

  • J Squared

    okay, Hughes please.

  • Riddering

    Michael Kay just aged me five years.

  • acb

    i have a feeling giardi is going to do some dumb shit this inning

  • Souter Fell

    Wow that was close… twice.

  • AJ

    I think you let A.J. go through the eighth. I know he’ll probably end up at around 120 pitches for the game, but he’s been on fire. Let him get through this inning and then start the pen in the ninth. He’s been able to keep himself healthy so far this year, and he’s pretty locked in right now.

  • acb

    i think its time for burnett to be taken out

    • acb

      lets just hope we dont bring MO in for a tie game

    • AJ

      There’s no reason to take him out. See above post for reason.

  • Russell NY

    Cant let Kotchman on, they will pinch run for him

  • J Squared

    GET SOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

    I’m naming my first son Allan James.

    • Riddering

      Weak.

      My first kid, no matter the gender, is going to be A.J.

  • acb

    this umpire is insanely bad haha

    • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

      He’s definitely intimidated by AJ. He is a pretty scary looking guy.

  • paulc

    last batter for aj??? hughes time???coke ready? ace???

  • Pasqua

    Ya’ think hitters ever watch replays of their strikeouts and feel embarrassed that they tried to show up the umpire? Cuz if they do, that’s how Kotchman’s gonna feel when he sees that pitch was down the f’ing middle.

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

    Come on, A.J.

  • J Squared

    Thank You AJ.

  • paulc

    freakin 4 pitch walk..ugh…bullpen??

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

    Alright, Phil. Do your thang.

  • Pasqua

    So I usually just sit on my couch and watch the game, but I just stood and gave AJ a little round of applause. That was awesome.

  • Drew

    How bout that for atmosphere.

    YSIII=Sick

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

    Incredible performance.

  • acb

    how many of his 6 walks were on 4 pitches

  • Ivan

    Great job AJ. Great job.

  • paulc

    another huge moment…come on hughes…

  • Russell NY

    4 pitch walk to their fastest player? Easy steal of 2nd and 3rd here unfortunately. My guess: steals 2nd… hit and run for a run.

    • Pasqua

      Francona would be crazy to have him try and steal 3rd (assuming he gets 2nd, which I won’t do by god!)

    • Russell NY

      Told ya.

      • Pasqua

        You were wrong on 2 of 3 counts. Happily wrong.

  • AJ

    Good start by A.J. You know, as you could see from his reaction, that those six walks are going to eat at him. He had to pick Ellsbury to walk. I have a feeling we’ll see him test Hughes – Posada and take off early in the count. This is the spot we’ve all wanted to see Hughes come into. Let’s see if he can find a way to get out of this inning.

    • AJ

      Even on the pitchout, he should have looked him back there. Very close, bang-bang play. Unfortunately, the call doesn’t go to the Yanks. Big spot here Hughes. Get it done and get the Yanks back to the plate.

  • Hova

    Great pitching performance. This is why they paid him the big bucks and he delivered.

  • paulc

    hats off to AJ..freakin great job!

  • Riddering

    STANDING O HELL YES.

    Now let’s win the game for the team.

  • Drew

    Need some comedic relief?

    • BigBlueAL

      He is fuckin hilarious.

    Well done AJ. Beautiful job tonight.

  • Dela G

    what a great pitching performance

    wow it feels like game 7 right now

  • Steve H

    So I wasn’t in the earlier threads and I’m sure this was brought up. Is ESPN going to describe Beckett’s bush league fist pumping? Or are they going to talk about his passion and fire for the game?

    • Pasqua

      They’ll blame it on Joba

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    HUGHES!!!

  • Tank the Frank

    Don’t be a hero Pedroia.

  • V

    That’s why we need Gardner.

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

    Sweet call.

  • Souter Fell

    C’mon umps.

    Fuck. Dammit Brett. Why’d u fuck up ur hand.

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

    God. Dammit.

    • Russell NY

      Are the Yankees going to lose on a blown call by the umpire?? Probably!

  • acb

    great call

  • Pasqua

    Holy shit he was out! Please…not like this.

  • Dela G

    wow he was out

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    OUT!!!

    There’s the AJ fist pump. He saves it for the dugout, he’s too classy.

      He’s also not a product of incest.

        legit lol

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Pedroia vs. Hughes: 0-7

  • paulc

    yes!

  • Hova

    I hope they bring in Manny Del Carmen. I hate that bastard.

    • Steve H

      They won’t. I sure wish they would, but they won’t. He’s great when they are up or down by 5 runs, otherwise he’s shaky as hell.

      • Hova

        Good call. You’re right.

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

      They will, in the 14th inning.

  • dkidd

    way to shorten your swing, midget

    • Pasqua

      “How many MVP’s do you know that can’t get a hit in a big spot in Yankee Stadium?”

      “Aside from you?”

  • Steve H

    Just pack up and go home. The Sox bullpen has not put a man on base all year, never mind allowed a run.

    • Pasqua

      Beckett is going to replace himself in the 8th. That’s how good he is.

    • Hova

      Greatest bullpen in the history of baseball.

      “Andy Pettitte is a starting pitcha!!!!!!!”

    • Sam P.

      Wait, whaaaaaaat?

      What about that 10-run implosion to Baltimore? Or that 6-run implosion to Oakland?

      • Steve H

        Never happened. Just ask ESPN.

    • Sam P.

      Oh, sorry Steve – missed that joke. Too into the heat of the moment!

    • AJ

      Yes, but this is the 2009 New York Yankees, a.k.a. Late Game Winners.

    • Russell NY

      If Swisher gets on you immediately pinch run Pena

    • Yankees_Universe

      They have that kid who throws thousand miles per hour..Mike Francesa

  • Pasqua

    Why am I into this like it’s a playoff game? I have more juice flowing in me than Big Papi.

    • Steve H

      Big Papi circa 2003-2006.

  • paulc

    swish get on…melk man moveem over..jetes deliver!

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Wouldn’t it be funny if the Player’s Union and Owners had an intervention with the Umpire’s Union?

  • Riddering

    Total domination. Can’t steal home on that, little Ellsbury!

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    NO MORE BECKETT!!!

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

    Let’s go, Swish. Start something here.

  • Drew

    Swisher or Al. One of the two will win it.

  • Salty Buggah

    So a highlight came on Gameday: “Sox fan one, nab one”

    What’s that?

    • Dela G

      strike em out, throw em out

      • Salty Buggah

        oh….duh! thanks

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    I want Bard in this game so he can get smacked around.

  • Drew

    Bring that motherfucker Bard in it. It goes out quicker than it comes in.

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

    Dammit x 33.

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

    Leche bomb? Fingers crossed.

  • Hova

    Why not use Phil in the top of 9th and save Mo for the 10th? Flawed logic?

    • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

      +1

    • Pasqua

      Very. No save chance after the 8th, at home, in a tie game. Why wait?

      • Pasqua

        To clarify: you have to assume you’ll win in the 9th. You can’t play for the 10th.

        • toad

          Why do you have to assume that?

          • Pasqua

            Why the hell wouldn’t you?! Do you think either team is saying, “Well, we’ll never score in the next inning, so let’s manage for two innings from now”?

      • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

        But if it goes into extras, we lose an inning from one of our best relievers.

        • Pasqua

          BUT if Rivera comes in now and shuts them down and then the Yanks score in the 9th…you used your best pitcher to hold the Sox at bay and gave your team the best chance to win.

          • For lack of a more creative name… Alex

            Yea I guess my mind is changed, good move here.

      • Hova

        I see your point. I’m still not over my man-crush on Hughes, hence wanting to see him in the 9th as well.

      • toad

        Save chance??

        • Pasqua

          Meaning, you might as well use Rivera now because there’s now never going to be a situation where he has to hold a lead.

    • AJ

      Phil should be used in the ninth. We’ve seen Mo struggle in these tie-game situations the past two years. If Phil can have a quick inning, he might be able to work another inning. The bullpen is already tired, so any type of length from a reliever would be beneficial.

      But, of course, Girardi brings in Mo.

      • Pasqua

        Look, I know we’re all aware of the “tie game stigma” with Mo, but it’s Mo. From Girardi’s perspective, who do you think he wants to get beat with? Mo or Hughes? The answer’s Mo, b/c he’s their best.

  • Pasqua

    Hey everybody! Look at that moon! Isn’t that a beautiful fuckin’ moon?!

  • Salty Buggah

    cmon Melky!

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

    I really want the Yankees to score here…

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

      Not yet. This game will end with a walk off in the 9th or 10th, just to break their spirit even further. CC will win easy tomorrow and they will be looking to salvage a win w/Lester Sunday night.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    I want a run here

  • Drew

    Kay, you really don’t need to talk while a pitch is delivered in a 0-0 game in the 8th inning vs the sox. unfucking believable.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    ergghhh

    Alright Jetes, time for magic.

        • Steve H

          We all know pat.

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

    Well, they’ll just have to get a walk off win then.

  • Russell NY

    Captain ughhhhh

  • Ivan

    Well nuttin there.

  • Dela G

    to the ninth!

  • Salty Buggah

    damn, walk-off time hopefully

  • J Squared

    annoying

  • Tank the Frank

    This is all set up for Alex to hit a bomb of 120mph-throwing Daniel Bard.

    • bobtaco

      Here it is. Maybe Alex can become a True Yankee™ here

  • paulc

    please keep hughes in or will joe go to mo?

  • Russell NY

    This is tough as it gets… V-Mart, Youkilis, Ortiz… all homerun threats.

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

      Ortiz?

      • Steve H

        IETC.

  • Drew

    Alex got this shit.

  • Tank the Frank

    I really hate Boston’s success against Mo.

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

    Nice job wasting Hughes for one out, Girardi.

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

      Agreed.

    • Drew

      Was it really a waste?

    • J Squared

      Rather have defense if Swisher isn’t guaranteed to hit again.

    • toad

      I agree also. Who’s pitching the 10th?

    • Pasqua

      What’s going on here? Tie game, 9th inning, at home, you go to your “closer.” I hate the way Hughes has been handled the last week or so, but this is a pretty clear-cut gameplan.

    • Hova

      Sarcasm or you really wanted Hughes for the 9th?

      • toad

        Yes. Why not? Maybe we’ll score in the bottom of the ninth, but maybe not.

        • Pasqua

          And maybe the game goes 23 innings. Hypothetical is irrelevant at this point.

          • toad

            Why is thinking about extra innings more hypothetical than assuming we’ll score in the 9th?

            And what crystal ball says Hughes wouldn’t get thru the 9th?

  • Russell NY

    I would have left Hughes in… Mo in tie games usually doesnt go well

  • David A

    Oh god Mo in a tied game. Am I wrong to be scared here?

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

    aaaannnnnd it’s not Seattle, either.

    “8:44pm: Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times reports that the Mariners did not put the claim in on Rios.”

    Just to recap, Rios was NOT claimed by Seattle, The Reds, The Red Sox, The Mets or the Giants.

    6 down, 24 teams to go.

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

      11 teams. Verducci said he was claimed by an AL club on MLB Network.

      • nick

        I’m thinking ChiSox?

        • BigBlueAL

          I thought maybe the Tigers.

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

    Oh good, replace Swish for no apparent reason as well.

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

      uh, defense?

      Hairston could save the game with a play out there that Swish doesn’t make.

      • Ant

        Damon is alot worse in the field the Swisher

        • Drew

          Isn’t Damon uh, due up?

        • BigBlueAL

          Yeah but Damon leads off the 9th inning.

        • Steve H

          Damon’s also leading off the bottom of the 9th.

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

          Damon has a better shot to win the game with his bat. 13 HRs at Home (7 Away) wheras Swisher has 3 HRs at Home and 15 Away.

          http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/splits?playerId=5937

    • BigBlueAL

      Nah Swish just hit so I dont mind the defensive replacement.

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

      It pains me to think that Matsui wasn’t pinch hit for because Girardi was thinking about the Hairston defensive replacement.

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

      It pains me to think that Matsui wasn’t pinch run for because Girardi was thinking about the Hairston defensive replacement.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    I think I would have thrown Hughes out there instead of Mo.

    • Russell NY

      Me too… I don’t like this decision at all. Our bullpen is thin now if we need to go into extra innings.

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

        Tough to argue against bringing in the greatest Closer of all time, but some still do.

        • Steve H

          Yeah, no matter what Girardi did there people would complain.

  • paulc

    dang..would have stayed with phil…hmmmm/;

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Why put Mo in?

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

      Because he’s Mo, and you’d be kicking yourself if you lost the game and you didn’t.

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

    I’m not sure I understand why Girardi’s pulling Hughes here.

    • Drew

      cuz we’re gonna win in the 9th.

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

        or the 10th.

  • acb

    hasnt girardi learned by now

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

    That pitch made me nervous. Get him now, Mo.

  • Ant

    Girardi’s made some pooor managerial decisions tonight.

    • J Squared

      are u kidding?

    • Drew

      lol. yeah, we suck. Girardi blew it.

      • Ant

        Because I said that? LOL!

  • paulc

    unreal joe…

  • Ivan

    Wouldn’t it be better to squeeze one more inning out of Hughes?

    • CT Yankee

      Um. Yes

  • Dela G

    K!!!

  • CT Yankee

    I really Dont like Girardi. Although at least he made a change at the begining of an inning instead of after some arbitrary criteria in the middle of innings

    • Dela G

      its a 0-0 game

      go back to watching, he’s managed this pretty well

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    K!

  • dre

    this is when Girardis brilliance really shines…close games against good teams..

    is hairston really that much better than swisher on D? Hughes has been on fire no reason to waste him, you don’t know how long this game is going to go.

    • CT Yankee

      Exactly. I need to be talked off a ledge right now. Coke in the 10th?

  • acb

    even if mo gets out of this who do you trust to pitcdh the 10th inning if it goes to that

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

      It won’t.

      /swagger.

  • dkidd

    mo’s location not so good the last few outings

  • Yankees_Universe

    Joe would be fighting for his job tomorrow if Hughes blew the game..Mo is your best weapon..you go with that..don’t change the things you don’t have to.

    • Drew

      Finally, someone brings some levity to the situation. Mo>Hughes

      We can’t play for the 10th, 11th, or 12th inning.

      • dre

        but we cn’t make belive they won’t be there, hughes has been lights out its not like we wwould be leaving in some scrub

        • Drew

          It’s not like we brought in some scrub either. We have 5 other pitchers for extras.

          • Pasqua

            Exactly. And Hughes has NOT been lights out for the last week or so.

  • jjhammer31

    Girardi has done this before. He doesn’t seem to believe that tie games in the 9th become become tie games in the 10th, 11th and so on. Who do you trust after Mo? (if it comes to that)

    • Pasqua

      But you can’t play assuming you’re going extra innings. You play the law of averages, put in your best guy, and hope you win the 9th. You can’t play for hypothetical situations, especially at this point in a game.

      • toad

        Since when does the law of averages say you’re going to score in the 9th?

    • Drew

      The pitchers we have? Uh, Mel, Ace, D-Rob, Coke, Bruney.

  • J Squared

    GET SOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dela G

    dooooshilis Ks!

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Stop complaining asshole.

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

    Hah Youk was right, but I’ll take it for all the BS AJ ball calls.

    • Steve H

      Really? I thought that was a no doubt strike. Even the NESN guys didn’t dispute the call.

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

        Gameday had it as a ball. The second strike, too.

        • Steve H

          Yeah, but it’s Mariano effing Rivera. He gets that 99.5/100.

  • Russell NY

    BIG steroids up!

  • J Squared

    HES ON STEROIDS!!!

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    I heard it!

  • putt

    How could that possibly have been a ball? Youk didn’t swing! He only swings if it’s a strike. Somebody clue in this ump….

  • Dela G

    wow i can’t believe Ortiz hit the ball

  • J Squared

    oh, a steroid single… damnit.

  • Riddering

    ….of course!

  • Hova

    Fuck Ortiz.

  • AJ

    I don’t know why Youk was complaining there. It was almost exactly the same area the Okajima pitch went, and the ump was consistent with both calls. Don’t be happy when you get the call but bitch when it goes against you.

  • Ivan

    ORTIZ GOT A HIT OFF MO ZOMG!!!!!!!!!

  • Tank the Frank

    BBTN showing nothing but Beckett highlights.

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

      That’ll suck for them when they show the walk off win later on.

      • AJ

        agreed.

  • Salty Buggah

    damnit Papi..get out of this Mo

  • J Squared

    A-GOD!!!!!!!

    • Riddering

      +13

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    thank mo.

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

    2-3-4 due up. DO IT, YANKEES.

  • Dela G

    A-ROD!

    TEH CLUTCH CATCH!

    • Hova

      But what about his HR drought? He hasn’t hit one in 70+ at-bats, so he’s clearly washed up. Idiots.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    AROD!!!

  • Souter Fell

    Let’s do this and go home baby.

  • putt

    Arod. Huh, there’s a name you haven’t heard much tonight…

  • dkidd

    who hits the walk-off?

    i’ll go with tex

    • DreDog

      Damon uses a Papeldouche fastball to power a homerun that barely clears the RF fence.

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

        I’d prefer Teixeira hitting a mammoth blast OVER the right field bleachers.

  • Pasqua

    Did everybody here get a crystal ball at the gate or something? I’m surprised to see so many people resigned to extra innings. We’re just as likely to score in the 9th as in any other inning. Girardi is playing for the win right here. Pretty standard stuff.

  • adeel

    The A-rod era begins in the Bronx.

  • Salty Buggah

    OK, end it now guys!!! Tex needs a walkoff for this year

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

    Hahahahahah!

    Who wants pie?

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

    I know this is stating the obvious because of the three who are up…but I have a fantastic feeling about this inning.

  • Steve H

    Okie Dokie keeps leaving the ball up this will be over soon.

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

    A Damon walk off would be the SWEETEST way to end this.

    • NYQ

      No an A-Rod walk off would be sweeter.

  • Salty Buggah

    I wanna see some cream-pies tonight!!!!!

    • Tank the Frank

      That’s nasty.

      • Steve H

        Just glad pat didn’t say it.

      • Salty Buggah

        Yea, for tonight we need some nasty magic!

      • Randy A.

        hahahahahahaha

    • dkidd

      lol

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

      /pat’d

  • DreDog

    Okajima? Really?

  • Tank the Frank

    Cmon Damon. Get the leadoff man on is huge here.

  • http://www.twitter.com/wahbjo01 Jordan
  • Tank the Frank

    Classic Damon AB. He needs to get on here.

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

    Let’s go, Johnny. Come on, Johnny. Do it, Johnny.

    /generic’d.

  • Russell NY

    What I would give for an “In play, run(s)” right now

    • Pasqua

      I’ve been there too, Russell.

  • Hova

    Daniel Bard warming up. I want the Yankees to make him their bitch. Salivating at the opportunity to win the game off him. Saw him collapse against the Rays. It was great.

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

    Anti-climactic.

    Come on, Tex.

  • Salty Buggah

    cmon Texy!

  • J Squared

    good, bring in a righty, pussy.

  • Tank the Frank

    Daniel Bard fastball = walk off HR

    • DreDog

      Just make contact that fastball will power the rest.

  • Drew

    Kay why don’t you tell us what “right hander” they are bringing in. Ass.

  • Salty Buggah

    cmon In Play, run(s)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Russell NY

    YES BARD!!!!!!

  • Steve H

    Love that Tex comes into to Twisted Sister.

  • dkidd

    how far could alex hit a bard fastball? let’s find out

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Who is coming in? I missed it

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      nvm

  • Ivan

    So fucking tense right now

  • Drew

    heh, why do they want to turn Teix around.

  • Pasqua

    He throws “aspirins”?

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

    I would ji** my pants if “The Curse of MT” blasted a 100 MPH FB out of the park off of “Untouchable” Bard.

    • Steve H

      Has John “Mr. Burns” Henry’s tweeting slowed down lately? I would think so.

  • Ivan

    iight A-Rod, do ya thing.

  • Souter Fell

    Whoever called Al, I hope you’re right.

  • Riddering

    C’mon, Alex.

    End the drought.

    Do it for Kate.

    • DreDog

      Kate = Anti Jessica Simpson

  • V

    Damnit. I KNEW he was going to throw up and away.

  • BklynJT

    Beh!

  • Russell NY

    Um, not the way I envisioned that at-bat.

  • Pasqua

    Come on, A-Rod. You did steroids the “right way.” Make ’em pay!

    • DreDog

      Do it for all the Amatuer hour, Loosey goosey guys.

  • DGeezy

    I hope bard throws an ‘aspirin’ my way, i need it listening to kay this game

  • Ivan

    PR for A-Rod?

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    LOLZ WOODY

  • BigBlueAL

    Arod needs to steal.

  • Souter Fell

    Alright, 180 feet away.

  • Pasqua

    And hopefully this is why we didn’t PR for Matsui earlier.

  • Hova

    Japan is watching. It’s your time to shine Godzilla.

  • Steve H

    Send A-Rod? Bard, while a hard thrower is pretty slow to the plate.

  • V

    LOL! Did anyone see PeteAbe’s fuckup?

    UPDATE, 10:10 p.m.: Papelbon for Tex.

    It now reads:

    UPDATE, 10:10 p.m.: Daniel Bard for Tex.

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

      T-Kep probably leaned over and corrected it for him.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Matsui can’t hit fastballs above 93 mph, he’ll never hit 100!

    • Ivan

      Sure about that.

      • Johan Iz My Brohan

        :sarcasm

  • Ivan

    Come on Matsui.

  • BklynJT

    Just tuned in, wasnt that a waste of Hughes. 5 pitches… Oh well, hopefully Matsui can come through

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      He’ll be available tomorrow though fortunately.

  • Tank the Frank

    Bloop single baby!!

  • DreDog

    PRESSURE SITUATION

  • Hova

    James Bond music? That was awesome.

  • Pasqua

    This ump really doesn’t know what he wants to be.

  • BigBlueAL

    WOW a 3-2 curve. What a pussy.

  • BklynJT

    Come on Posada!!!! YOU CAN DO IT… all night long~

  • JackC

    That didn’t miss by much

  • Ivan

    Come on End this.

  • Hova

    Whoever said this felt like a playoff game was dead-on. I am jacked up right now (not like Papi)

  • Russell NY

    Please god dont swing at first pitch and ground out

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

    BALK!!

  • Ivan

    IIIIIIIIIIIIIght!!!!!!!!!!

  • Souter Fell

    I’ll take it.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    HA!

  • dkidd

    composure fail

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

    Woo! DO IT JORGE.

  • JackC

    A balk? Now it’s a classic

  • Russell NY

    Just put the ball on the ground and try to find a hole. Don’t worry about the homerun

  • Ivan

    Well next time.

  • Souter Fell

    God dammit.

  • BklynJT

    Whatta scrub

  • JackC

    WHat a Mo – awful swing that was

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

    That didn’t even start as a strike. Awful.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    WHY!!!!!

  • Russell NY

    How did I see that coming… Jorge loves him some low curveballs

  • Tank the Frank

    That was so piss poor. I wonder why any pitcher would throw Posada anything but breaking balls.

  • Mike Ox

    Nice swing.

  • V

    Goddamnit Posada. You’re the LAST one I want up when the pitcher has a good curveball.

    I’m getting tired of all these curves taken for strikes.

    • Tank the Frank

      At some point you figure you’d read your own scouting report. If we know a curve is coming…he should know a curve is coming.

  • Pasqua

    At what point did that pitch look good?

  • Salty Buggah

    fuckin Jorge!!!!!!! Damn!!!!

  • J Squared

    Can;t be fucking serious…

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

    First ‘the slide’ and now ‘the swing’

    Jorge, you’re dead to me.

    Dead.

  • BigBlueAL

    Not liking a battle of the bullpens into extra innings with Hughes and Mo done.

  • Hova

    Damn. Can’t say we didn’t have our chances tonight. Let’s hold them for one more inning. The Melkman still needs another chance to deliver.

  • Tank the Frank

    This sucks b/c Aceves has been prone to the HR of late. Let’s hope his shoulder is ok.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    Jorge hasn’t looked great today.
