    can we play with pena at SS, hairston at 3B, hinske at DH tmrw?

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      The media’l say we shouldve gone for the throat

    • Mike Pop

      Not with Lester on the hill, need the best lineup out there.

      • pat

        Word. We need to go boot to throat. Give em a day off Monday.

    • Salty Buggah

      Why is it that now everytime someone has a bad game or two, they need a day off?

      • http://www.twitter.com/shaked RichYF

        It’s akin to making them sit in a pile of rice in the corner. Make them think about what they’ve done.

    • No Halladay

      This one isn’t over yet, and if the Yanks win they can maybe rest some starters IF Mitre trots out on Monday

    • whozat

      You’re not wrong.

      But Jeter won’t sit.

      Maybe ARod DHes and Matsui sits tomorrow, maybe. I could see Hairston in LF for Damon, with Lester on the mound, though.

    • Mike Ox

      Lowell slower then Molina?

  • souterfell

    Jebus, still dealing. Let’s keep it going big man.

    is there anything to Victor Martinez’s precipitous decline from his stellar march and april?

    I think it was when he fouled a pitch hard off his knee from CC.

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

      That was so nasty.

    • Drew

      I thought Wang made that pitch

      • Tank the Frank

        Nah it was CC. I remember it well, it looked like V-Mart would be done for the season he was in so much pain.

    • George H

      It could be regression…I think he was almost batting .400 in mid-May.

  • dre

    dont know if anybody said this but where was the union when Arod was getting ripped apart?

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Someone asked that in the press conference, the union rep got very offended and implied that they were there for everyone including alex

    • whozat

      A reporter actually asked about that. I was shocked.

      They said that it was the cumulative effect of more guys getting outed after ARod.

    • http://pinstripepalace.blogspot.com/ Brien Jackson

      My guess would be that they were looking to pick their spot when a more “likeable” player was outed.

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

    Gah, ugly pitch. Recover, CC!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Oh shit. Time to get phil up

  • Dela G

    yikes, cmon cc, lets get outta this one :)

  • Russell NY

    leadoff walk with a 2 run lead = no no no

  • Salty Buggah

    DP time CC

  • Russell NY

    I’ll take a 1-pitch double play here

  • Tank the Frank

    The Red Sox haven’t scored a run in 20 innings.

    I don’t believe in jinxes.

  • Dela G

    ok CC, you gotta get that control and command back my friend

  • No Halladay

    Papi can’t remember what he might have taken, sure. We all take things that we might just forget about.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      When you consider how much he was taking, hes probably being honest

      • No Halladay

        Great, at least he didn’t go to the flaxseed oil as the reason

  • pat

    If this was RTTS CC would have been yanked after that walk. I hate that fuckin game.

    • Mike Pop

      I once had a perfect game going through 8.2, Piniella took me out.

      Never played it again.

      • pat

        You could be through 7 innings on like 30 pitches and u give up a hit or BB and they yank you. Shit’s maaad frustrating.

        • Mike Pop

          It’s heartbreaking.

          I could of had so many complete games…

          • pat

            No shit, plus those CG’s are MAAAAAAD points. Not to mention if u get 12+ K’s and a shutout. That’s like 4 or 5 hundy.

    where is hughes???

    • Dela G

      nervously watching like we are

  • Bob Stone

    Time for Hughes

  • No Halladay

    Yanks could be looking at playing the Central Div winner in the playoffs. Detroit, Chi Sox, Twins. Which would be the best matchup?

    Ideal is Red Sox or Rays V. Angels/Rangers. Eliminates one of the best teams in the AL.

  • BigBlueAL

    Get Hughes up immediately. Although CC obviously will face Papi and Drew.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    DP or homer

  • Accent Shallow

    Anything going on in the pen?

    I definitely let CC pitch to Ortiz. Lowell is a possibility if he gets a DP.

  • Tank the Frank

    Maybe I’m weird but it sounds like Buck really wants Ortiz to come through here.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      You are not weird. You have picked up on an very clear pro-red sox bias

      • Tank the Frank

        Thank you Scott Brosius!!!

  • Dela G

    last american league DH to hit a homerun was ortiz??

    haha adam lind hit one a couple of days ago???

    • pat

      I think from the beginning of the season. He was the last to homer. Knaamean?

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

      I think he means chronologically; that is, Ortiz was the final DH to get a homer.

      WOW. DEREK JETER IS AMAZING.

  • Dela G

    STRUCK EM OUT!

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

    Hypocrites don’t get the benefit of the doubt, David. ;)

    YESSSSS

  • Bugsy

    wow. what a bad call. i guess he atones for his earlier mishaps.

  • Drew

    Why are redsox allowed to yell at umpires?

  • cjc

    yes he did its amazing how much BS Ortiz gets away with

  • Accent Shallow

    Do Red Sox players ever get tossed for arguing balls/strikes?

    I swear, it has to be an organizational strategy.

  • E-ROC

    I’m beginning to like this umpire.

  • cjc

    of xourse you thought he held up

  • George H

    Jeter knew his runner there.

  • Bob Stone

    I love it but . . . Ortiz held up. Great DP!

    • Salty Buggah

      It was close. Initially I thought he did too but after the replay his bat crossed the plate barely.

  • Dela G

    HAHAHAHAH HE STILL GOT EM YOUK!

    YOUUUUUUK SUCK

    • Accent Shallow

      You have to give credit to Youk there, that was a great “breaking up a DP” slide. Unfortunately for him (and fortunately for us), Lowell is slower than a peanut butter river.

  • Mike Pop

    CC/Jetah/Cano!!!

  • EvoLuTioN

    STILL TURNS THE DOUBLE PLAY

    :lol:

  • BigBlueAL

    What a turn!! LOL

  • Bugsy

    hahahahahahahahahahah. wow. i’ve never seen that before.

  • M18

    nice play boys!

  • pat

    FUCKING RIDICULOUS PLAY BY JETER, That was Jordan-esque.

    • Drew

      haaha minus a couple inches on the vertical.

      • pat

        Hah true, but he double pumped like a mofo.

  • Salty Buggah

    YEAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    JETER BITCHES!!!! FACK YOUK!

    NICE CC!

  • cjc

    wow slower than Jorge

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    HAHAHA lowell is slow.

  • Drew

    that was fuckin nuts

  • dre

    what a playwe by the captain!!!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Fuck yes! CC huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge

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

    Double clutch double play!

  • Accent Shallow

    I confess, I was worried about CC’s K-rate. Hopefully that mechanical flaw fixed it.

    And holy shit, what a DP! Lowell is glacial. Youk made a fantastic slide, but it didn’t matter.

    • Tank the Frank

      CC’s slider has been noticeably sharper today. His velocity is up too. I think we can expect a higher K rate from here on out.

      • Accent Shallow

        That would be fantastic.

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

    Derek Jeter is so awesome.

  • Zack

    jeter!

  • whozat

    Wow, Lowell running in slow motion out there.

    He’s a first baseman. How many years are left on that contract?

    • Accent Shallow

      His contract expires after 2010.

      • whozat

        Yeah, I know. I was riffing on the ARod comment. That extension was not a great idea on their part…do you believe some people wanted the Yanks to outbid the Sox for Lowell? To get him to be the 1B?

    • Zack

      maybe olney’s scout thought he was watching ARod when it was actually Lowell

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

    That’s fucking hysterical. Matsui beats that out.

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

      You think? I’m not so sure.

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

        You’re ruining the moment.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Jete was so surprised he still had time to get him

  • No Halladay

    Why all the tenseness here? Up by 4.5 games, worst is 3.5. Best 5.5.

    Presure is all on the Red Sox end. They are sinking quickly.

    • George H

      It’s still August. Counting out the Sox would be a mistake. Same thing for the Rays.

      • Salty Buggah

        exactly

  • Drew

    Does CC poke his head out in the 8th? or straight to phil

    • Mike Pop

      No fucking around, right to Phranchise.

  • DreDog

    Who pitches the 8th?

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

      Swisher.

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        ietc

    • Accent Shallow

      Is it Joba’s throw day yet?

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

    The best part was that after Jeter hurdled Youk, he looked like he had already accepted that the DP was broken up, but then realized he Lowell was still halfway down the line.

    • GG

      Lowell makes Tex look like Carl Crawford

  • Salty Buggah

    Whoa CC’s roar = scary for opponents

  • souterfell

    That was awesome. Simply awesome.

  • No Halladay

    Bucholz pitched well, wish they would have dealt him at the deadline

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Hes got one pitch, and its a changeup. Im not impressed

      • Mike Pop

        Still got ridic upside.

        • pat

          Yeah but his FB location is crap. You can’t survive without that.

      • George H

        He also has an above-average fastball. Buchholz is going to be a good pitcher- he only has 118 career IP in the majors, and that’s scattered over 3 years. He’s still young.

        • Ghost of Scott Brosius

          You’re right. I just feel like he’s way more of a high profile prospect than he deserves to be

    • Zack

      his WHIP was 1.83 today

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        Bingo

  • No Halladay

    love that mock Youk chant, best

  • No Halladay

    love that mock Youk chant, best

  • Salty Buggah

    Lovin the Youk chants! They’re loud too

  • Drew

    Youkilis is suffering from “sliding on the wrong side.”

  • Accent Shallow

    You have to give Buchholz credit, he pitched pretty well — lots of walks, but he got some groundouts and kept the Yankees from breaking it open. I’m still unconvinced that he’ll be able to succeed long-term if he keeps pitching backward, but we’ll see.

    • EvoLuTioN

      exactly

      he’s also turning 25 in a week.
      sofar he hasnt proved much at the major league level

      • whozat

        But it’s time to give up on Joba, right Francessa?

  • Bob Stone

    The tenseness for me is that I want more than a split to send a message to the BoSox. . . . that the 0-8 was a fluke and that we are going to beat them because we are a better team.

    Tomorrow looks like a tough game to win, so I want this one today. This is the one game we were highly favored to win.

  • Drew

    I’m ready to see someone in a gray jersey get knocked on the ground.

    • No Halladay

      Exactly, Tomorrow when Yanks are up by a bunch, look for it.

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

    Bring out the clow…umm relief pitchers!

    Tomorrow’s game has blowout or slugfest written all over it. Sox now have scored Zilch since Moses.

    • EvoLuTioN

      especially with andy on the mound

      oh boy.

    • Accent Shallow

      I dunno, their offense is not that good.

      Ortiz looks toasty, as do Varitek and Lowell. Kotchman isn’t very good, Bay is injured, Youk has cooled off.

  • Salty Buggah

    no DP Alex! We need insurance runs here!

  • Bob Stone

    C’mon ARod – Pad some stats!

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

    Buck and McCarver seem way too surprised about a statistical correction (though the numbers he just spat out mean little without knowing the league average).

    Hmm….I’m not sure that was intentional. But, whatever, I’ll take it.

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    good get him out of here.

  • souterfell

    P*ssies.

  • GG

    McCarver and Buck are confused here?????? Are cleanup hitter just got nailed in the back first pitch

  • Drew

    Almost hit alex in the head, almost hit Teix near the head/shoulder, hit alex in the back. “quick trigger????”

  • Little Bill

    Surprised he threw him out, but it means they have to burn through another reliever.

  • David A

    Love the fox commentators… WHY????? Maybe because of the first time they came at a-rod this game +tex +this…

    • Tank the Frank

      I just love it even more because it just burns Buck, McCarver, John Anderson, Peter Gammons, Steve Berthume…the whole lot at ESPN that this is happening.

  • No Halladay

    Sterling thinks it wasn’t deliberate, like hell, second time?

  • pat

    BAHAHAHAHAHAH Right in the elbow pad. All day every day. Thanks asshole.

  • George H

    No way that’s intentional, Sox are still in this game, Ramirez would be a total fool if he was throwing at A-Rod.

    • donttradecano

      he almost hit tex, that was intentional.

      • DreDog

        I agree. He knew what he was doing to both batters.

  • Zack

    ok NOW it’s bullshit that they call the up and in fastball to Tex ‘part of the game’

    • Mikebk

      pitching inside is part of the game.

      • Zack

        up by the face?

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

    Bring in Towers to hit someone in the top of the 8th and get tossed.

    • Accent Shallow

      Ehhh, you want the pitcher doing that to at least be someone who throws hard.

    • SouthernYankeeFan

      If they get some score some runs i’d love it. tell him plunk someone and the DFA him the next day.

  • Salty Buggah

    I hope A-rod’s OK…no dips for him for like a day or two.

  • Accent Shallow

    Francona: “You mean we can’t hit their players with impunity? Come on!”

  • DGeezy

    um i highly doubt that was intentional, why would they plunk arod & put tex in scoring position? theyre trying to win the game.

  • EvoLuTioN

    “youd think they wouldnt burn ramirez if they wanted to hit someone”

    yeah because they knew he would get ejected :bowrofl:

    what fucking idiots

  • souterfell

    • Salty Buggah

      hehe IETC

    • dkidd

      joyce brushed off the plate and said something to martinez before that pitch. i wonder if it was “another pitch like the one to tex and your pitcher is gone”?

  • Drew

    I’d like to see CC come out for one pitch and lay drew on his back

    • Mike Pop

      No. That’s just dumb, then he gets fined and looks like an ass. There is that, and then there is protecting your players.

      • Drew

        • Mike Pop

          Hahah, it’s all good brotha.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    A-Rod almost got hit in his first at bat plus Sox players complaining a ton. I do wonder what V-Mart was saying that upset the ump enough to stop the game.

    • http://www.twitter.com/shaked RichYF

      Yeah, I’m pretty much on the same page here. It seemed like a foregone conclusion…

    • SouthernYankeeFan

      maybe an annoymous source will leak the umpires audio from the game.

  • whozat

    Next pitch gets him? BS.

    Several pitches later, they got him.

    Look…you can’t go up and in on one guy and then hit the next guy and expect not to get tossed from the game, not in a charged environment like this.

    • Mike Pop

      Exactly.

    I doubt it was intentional, but I wonder what the home plate umpire said to VMart while he was dusting the plate off. It’s like he was expecting it…

    • David A

      Ump was def expecting it. Im telling you with A-Rod buzzing and then near buzzing of Tex. He knew something was up.

  • souterfell

    plus years of plunking yankees by the sox…

  • Drew

    Enrique Gonzalez looks like a fuckin gremlin in his gameday photo.

  • Alex

    is that ben linus or francona?

    • George H

      Exactly what I said earlier. The frames are almost exactly alike.

      • Alex

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        Ben linus would be the greatest and most hated gm of all time

        • pat

          Ben Linus would be an AMAZING GM. He’d trade crap for Halladay and Wells then find a way to have Wells killed so we don’t have to pay his contract

  • Tank the Frank

    Intentional or unintentional… I noticed one BIG difference. Pedroia’s in tears cursing out everyone on his way to 1st. A-Rod takes, doesn’t say a thing, goes to 1st. But he’s the asshole right?

    • George H

      Yeah, but Pedroia doesn’t ask chicks at bars if he’s hotter than Jeter.

      • Tank the Frank

        Exactly. Pedroia spends his romantic nights with Peter Gammons.

        • George H

          I think Gammons is a tremendous reporter, but he can’t hide his homerism at all.

  • Accent Shallow

    Lost in all this is how people are shocked that Ramon Ramirez isn’t that great of a pitcher.

    Every year someone starts off hot (this year was Bonifacio for the hitters, and Greinke and Ramirez among pitchers) and everyone seems to think that hitting .457 or pitchign to a 0.62 ERA is their new talent level. Then when said player falls off, there’s palpable surprise. Not all breakouts are real, and even the ones that are real aren’t necessarily of a magnitude as the initial.

    • Tony

      Grienke actually is really good.

      • Accent Shallow

        Greinke is really good. He’s just not sub-1 ERA good.

      • Chris V.

      He has one on his career. It’d be nice if he could make it two here.

  • whozat

    THis guy is a squat little goblin.

  • cjc

    of course he does Joe thats RAobbie being Robbie

  • Josh

    Wow, .247 career with bases loaded. C’mon Cano.

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

    Goddammit. Tough with two now, Robbie!

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    BUllSHIT now thats a fucking strike.

    Come on Cano!

  • EvoLuTioN

    i think cano is scared one of his liners is gonna hit a runner so he just hits grounders or strikes out with RISP

  • Bugsy

    i like cano. u?

  • Salty Buggah

    no DP Cano…I’ll take a sac fly or a walk though!!!

  • Accent Shallow

    He’s one pitch away from walking Robbie after being up 0-2 to force in a run.

  • whozat

    FAIL

  • cjc

    there’s a big shock

  • Bugsy

    definitely spoke too soon.

  • Accent Shallow

    Oy vey, Robbie.

  • EvoLuTioN

    who didnt see that one coming

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    damn.

    Errrrrgh

  • Salty Buggah

    bad cano! Oh well, cmon Melky! we need a single das it!

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

    That wasn’t optimal.

    Let’s go, Swish.

  • Tank the Frank

    DO IT SWISH FOR MO’S SAKE!!!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    The speed of cano? who does mccarver think he is?

  • cjc

    so when do we get the Robinson Cano with the baseloaded kills kitten post?

  • EvoLuTioN

    lets go swisher!

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    cano is just terrible with men on base.

  • http://www.twitter.com/shaked RichYF

    I have faith in Nick the Swish in this spot.

  • dkidd

    swisher will work a walk

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

    Bases loaded walk for Swish. I’m feeling it.

  • Accent Shallow

    I can’t believe Francona is punting this game. Either that, or he’s just out of pitchers.

    • George H

      I’m inclined to think it’s the latter.

  • BigBlueAL

    I think I honestly would rather have Molina up with the bases loaded than Cano. Molina wouldve hit a Sac Fly.

    OK maybe not but still this thing with Cano and the bases loaded is beyond mind-boggling.

    • George H

      In 108 PAs, his slash line with the bases juiced is .247/.259/.351. Statistical fluke or truly un-clutch? I say the former.

    • http://www.twitter.com/shaked RichYF

      He was 3-3 up until that point. I understand the concern, but he’s not going to get a hit EVERY time.

      You’re right, he should have tried to pop it up, but I can’t be upset with him. Not like I was with Derek Jeter to the tune of 5 LOB last night…

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    please please bb

  • Tank the Frank

    Take 3-1 too.

  • cjc

    spike lee is into it

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    fuck that was borderline

  • Tony

    That waaaaaaaaaaas… not a strike

  • Salty Buggah

    that was ball 4 there!!!!

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    CC didn’t get that call.

  • No Halladay

    Nibbling

  • EvoLuTioN

    phew

  • Drew

    Didn’t he say last week we never hear “good effort” Now, we hear good effort a lot. wtf

  • No Halladay

    Here comes the grans slam, you can feel it

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

    That’s how Swisher fuckin’ rolls, baby!

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    good eye

  • Accent Shallow

    Huge insurance run.

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    Yeah baby.

  • Cokie

    We need to get this Kotchman guy on the yankees. Seems like all grit!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    I love this man

  • bobtaco

    Awesome, love Swish-eye

  • Bob Stone

    Good eye Swish!

  • Rob H.

    see……a walk IS just as good as a hit. lol

  • Bugsy

    heh heh heh.

  • Drew

  • EvoLuTioN

    nice try melky mantle

  • pat

    Bah, good play Kotch.

  • whozat

    Wow, Melky really needed to be busting down the line on that

  • cjc

    fuck balls

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

    Damn, very nice play by Kotchman.

  • Dela G

    damn it melky, at least run

  • bobtaco

    Melky has gotten some bad breaks, two games in a row…

  • Accent Shallow

    Good D by Kotchman there, otherwise it might be 6-0.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    is there a reason melky wasn’t busting it?
