    Ok, in retrospect, I guess it’s okay since he’s got the platoon advantage.

    I left in the 3rd and comeback home in the 7th just to see CC dominate? Wow, my luck sucks.

    GO YANKEES!

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    the contrast on how CC looked talking to the Umpire and how pedrio looked is comical.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    I highly doubt he said “don’t come inside”

  • Rob H.

    it’s kind of sad that McCarver doesn’t get why the umpire talked to CC and not Ramirez. RAMIREZ STARTED IT YOU TWIT!

        a silly stat. doesn’t take into account long innings, tough at bats, number of tough at bats and length of breaks in between innings

        • whozat

          Ok.

          So, CC is at 110 pitches, just sat for a long bottom of the inning, and it’s cool to bring him back in? For the bottom of the lineup? Why Coke unavailable and Hughes couldn’t POSSIBLY get Drew and Kotchman?

          So they’ll use Hughes to get just Nick Green?

        • radnom

          Of course we can assume that “dre” has taken into account all of those factors before voicing his complaint.

  • EvoLuTioN

    C.C. might be fine since its the bottom of the order

    we have no lefties in the pen

    Drew/Kotch and the very scary nick green

  • Accent Shallow

    CC looked gassed in the 7th, and that was a long inning that included an insurance run.

    Maybe Girardi wants to avoid using Hughes/Mo? I bet he’d go to Coke here if Coke was available.

  • GG

    I don’t like CC being back in this game, I know you want to preserve Hughes, but you don’t want to abuse the horse either

  • pat

    Anybody have an idea of CC’s pitch count?

      122

  • Salty Buggah

    OH STFU McCarver!!!

    Ramon didn’t get a warning but CC did? Fuck you and your bias!

    Wasn’t Clay almost hitting Alex’s head (unintentional or not) Ramon going high and in to Tex enough? If you’re gonna hit Alex on the 1st pitch, it makes it seem obvious!

    I had cooled down on the bias but Im angry again!

    • Whitey14

      ;-)

      I’m angry too dammit! MLB put out a Joba commercial but no Red Sox commercial ;-)

      • Salty Buggah

        Hehe…I personally didn’t think that was intentional but still I hate McCarver.

        They should have a story about Lester and cancer.

  • YankeeScribe

    Back to back low scoring games. YSIII is such a bandbox.

  • Rob H.

    I’m so happy we have all these experts here who know that CC shouldn’t go out to pitch the 8th. Maybe just maybe, Girardi actually knows what he’s doing. I know it’s a radical thought but lets give it a try.

    • dre

      and when his arm falls off we will send u the bill

      • Rob H.

    He coulda gone one more, go for ten k’s. 130 for CC is 105 for most pitchers

      For today at least. He didn’t have a lot of stressful innings except one.

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        Exactly. But I don’t mind phil showing off

      I’m hoping they score a couple more so that Hughes can just finish it out.

      If they only score one more, Joe will pull hughes if anyone reaches base. if they score none more, Mo will pitch no matter what.

        Hahah, I know I didn’t think he’d be good in the pen when people brought it up. I also know there were people who thought the same thing. Whatever though, that’s the beauty of blogging, NO ACCOUNTABILITY!

    • whozat

      Who said that? I’m pretty sure the assumption was that he’s got the stuff to be a very good starter, so of course he’d probably dominate out of the pen.

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

          Sorry, all I heard was a reference to his terrible record. I was being facetious. W-L record is an excellent indication of a pitcher’s success in my opinion.

      • Accent Shallow

        In 2008. He was 5-3 in 2007.

        (And he was awful in 2008. He was so bad that his third best start by Game Score was when he went two scoreless innings against the White Sox, and was pulled due to a rain delay. His only acceptable starts were his first and last one, both against Toronto.)

        Did he suck? Yes, but he was pitching with a broken rib, and he was 21 years old. Most kids that age are pitching college ball or in AA.

        If you were ready to write him off, you’re not ready to watch a team that’s developing its own talent.

    Really why is Mo even warming up in a 3-0 game. Let Hughes finish this game.

    • No Halladay

      YES, agreed. 3-0? If they get a hit or a walk then take him out.

    • Drew

      Top of the lineup, Mo has to be ready unless we get some runs.

      Just awful, I won’t watch a game with him, I’d rather turn off the volume and turn on the radio broadcast with Sterling.

    why are these managers swayed by stupid save situations? let hughes pitch the 9th. if he can protect the lead in the 8th, he can do the same in the 9th.

      I wonder that too.

  • Tony

    Are these guys seriously questioning whether that was a home run?

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

      I just think they’re questioning whether or not Derek Jeter is still capable of hitting homeruns. His best years were behind him in 2004 so they’re really just confused as to how he’s still a major league caliber player. Now that you’re up to speed, I’m sure you’ll understand the debate.

  • Salty Buggah

    McCarver saying that’s a YSIII special, which it was but you don’t have to complain. It is what it is. The opposing team can hit it there too.

    • No Halladay

      Exactly, aim for it if it’s so easy.

    • Luthien

      Its prolly a homer at Fenway to with that retarded “Pesky Pole” out in right.

  • Mike

    I don’t want to hear that was a new Yankee Stadium hr. That would have been a hr in the old stadium or Fenway..

    • No Halladay

      The monster in Fenway is also a very fair advatage that the Sox would never take advantage of.

  • No Halladay

    Sterling is reminding us that tomorrow is not the end of the season. For the Sox it could be the way they’re playing.

  • DGeezy

    you think putting d-rob out there for the 9th is too risky?

    • Tank the Frank

      No. It’s exactly the right move. Mo is already warm and can come in as soon as needed.

      • George H

        I disagree. Hughes needs his innings, too. He only threw 1/3 of an inning last night.

      • Drew

        Word, unless Joe doesn’t want to use Hughes 3 days in row In which case, you may as well just leave him out there.

        • Tank the Frank

          You can use him three days in a row if he’s only thrown 1/3 of an inning in the past two.

          See with Robertson in now…Hughes will be G2G tomorrow.

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

      Just keep Hughes in. He’s fresh enough, that’s for sure.

      • Tank the Frank

        Nah he’s worked plenty over the last week. He’s come in 5 times counting today, even though his pitch count is low.

        This way you get to use him tomorrow since he’s thrown so few pitches. A lower leverage reliever needs to come in here.

    • Accent Shallow

      D-Rob probably is not going to give up 5 runs.

      He might give up 2 or 3 though, which would lead to a Mo appearance.

    Things that are false:

    DRob and Hughes have similar stuff.

    • Accent Shallow

      They’re both fastball/curve pitchers, but their fastballs and curves aren’t that similar.

    • Drew

      Well, they are both righties, and they both throw fastballs.

  • Tony

    If Girardi brings Rivera into this game with a 4-5 run cushion I will call for him to be fired again.

    • No Halladay

      (Laughing) Old man Stienbrenner is here I think.

    • Drew

      And again your calls will go unheard.

    • Tony

      Let me introduce you guys to the “if-then” proposition. Google will provide the details.

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

    Those knives are cool.

  • Accent Shallow

    Hughes and Robertson aren’t that similar.

    They both have the big curve, but Robertson throws his harder, and Hughes has a better fastball. Not to mention, Hughes is 6’5″ and Robertson is 6’0″ in cleats.

  • radnom

    Umpires like Jim Joyce suck.

    He started annoying me way back in one of the early innings, with how he talked to Arod on that pitch that may or may not have hit him in the back (Fox has him miked for some reason).

    It hasn’t just been with the Yankees either, he is showing up played on both teams regularly.

    Listen buddy, you are not in this game. Get over yourself. If the fans notice you at all, you’re doing a shitty job. Guess what? You’re doing a really shitty job. Stop going out to talk to the pitchers before each inning, and instead try to focus on the strike zone instead of saving up your breath to yell strike for 15 seconds each time there is a called strike.

  • whozat

    Did ARod just yell “I fucked up” out to Damon?

    • Drew

      I thought he said, “that fuckin tarp”

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

    Rivera should only enter into this game if it is absolutely necessary. And by that I mean D-Rob gives up more than two runs.

  • Bugsy

    i really don’t need this right now.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    If he dosent get youk they have to pull him

  • Tank the Frank

    D-Rob can get it done.

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    WTF dont bring Mo in.

  • No Halladay

    Our pen still needs another from both the R and L side, anyone in AAA that could help when the rosters expand?

    • whozat

      Melancon and Marte.

      • George H

        Melancon is on the big league roster right now.

        • pat

          nope, he was optioned.

      • Accent Shallow

        As for lefty relievers, WDLR and Mike Dunn are both on the 40 man. Both have their issues, however.

    • George H

      Marte is still rehabbing.

      • No Halladay

        I’m thinking that a waiver deal could happen to address the issue.

  • whozat

    Tim, who is talking about bringing in Mo during an AB? Are you drunk?

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

      Clearly.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Too many foul tips to the mask

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

    Please roll one, D-Rob. Keep Mo out.

  • Accent Shallow

    Win Expectancy is still at 99%.

    Just drop the curve, D-Rob.

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

      Didn’t need it there. Woo!

  • Drew

    Let D-Rob go at em Joe.

  • whozat

    If he brings in Mo to get the epically slumping Ortiz, I will be livid.

  • George H

    Oh, ortiz was sitting on the FB and got fooled by the offspeed pitch.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    In what way did he “fool ortiz” buck? he couldnt catch up

    • George H

      <__>

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    please they actually beleive Ortiz about taking “supplements”

  • Accent Shallow

    Robertson just blowing it by Ortiz.

    (First pitch was 87. A change? Middle in to a lefty?)

    • George H

      Unless the gun was off, that had to be a poorly-located change.

    • whozat

      I dunno…it broke similarly to a 4-seamer

  • BigBlueAL

    I think Girardi is so desperate to keep Hughes in the bullpen for sure that he is using Hughes for 1 batter a game to strengthen the argument that Hughes isnt stretched out enough to start.

    • Accent Shallow

      There’s no way. If he is, he should be fired.

      It’s one thing to lobby (which I’m sure he’s doing), it’s another to sabotage.

  • Ivan

    K this Bitch.

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

    Ha ha, Joyce finally gets hit.

  • No Halladay

    Could Smoltz be a good pick up to put in the pen?

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

      No.

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    Sit down fatty.

  • DGeezy

    BEAUTIFUL D-ROB BEAUTIFUL

  • Little Bill

    Haha, struck out Ortiz looking. What a way to end it.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Game over. So is Papi’s career.

  • BigBlueAL

    Go take more vitamins bitch!!!!

    • lilstevie

      Bitamins….Bitamins

  • Salty Buggah

    D-rob>>>>>>>>>>>>Ortiz

  • Accent Shallow

    Strike 3, game over.

    Yay Robertson! Yay win!

    Sweep tomorrow, please?

  • No Halladay

    Bith slap X 3

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    anyone with gameday. was Robertson really throwing 94,95?

    • Luthien

      Yep

    • Drew

      yepp

      • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

        wow. nice. I do like how Joe didn’t Yank Robertson. He needs to learn to get out of jams if he is going to be a key bp guy.

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

      Per Brooks: average of 93.18. Love it.

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

    D-ROB! I always had faith in you!

  • pat

    8 hits in 24 innings.

  • Ivan

    Yankees win. Life is good. Really good.

  • Drew

    We could use some vintage AP tomorrow.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    YANKEES WIN!

  • Salty Buggah

    I wanted 3/4 but a sweep would be oh so good!

  • No Halladay

    26 games over 500 68-42 WOW

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    why doesn’t robertson get a Hold? I know it doesn’t mean much but if hughes gets an H for 1 batter should’nt Robertson get one for and inning?

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

      lol it is because holds are lame

    • Drew

      Hughes came in with a 3 run lead.

  • Salty Buggah

    Oh snap, D-rob reached 95 twice!!! Been a while since I’ve seen him that high. I think I the highest I remember was 94 last year.

    • Zack

      first pump too!

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    an inning**

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    an inning**

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Best fox game in a very long time

  • Bob Stone

    Yanks are on pace to 100 games!!

  • souterfell

    Could it be called Boston Massacre III if we win tomorrow?

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      I think it has to be in boston to be a boston massacre

  • Januz

    Except for a walk-off win, I cannot think of a better way to end the game than seeing Senor Steroid strike out looking (In other words, perform as lame and pathetic as his press conference today).
