    It’s far from over, Mike.

    • NYQ

      Damn straight

  • YankeesFanInMI

    Can and will complain…

    • Russell NY

      Yep. Girardi should be fired! Kidding :)

    • Tony

      Can, will, and should complain.

      • Lanny

        This is the type of dumb move that Girardi does that will cost this team in Oct games.

        • V

          I don’t normally agree with you, but this time I do. Why let Mr. Hanging Slider pitch to Martinez and Youkilis?

    • Pasqua

      When you have the knife to the throat, you slit it. 3 out of 4 is great in the greater context, but not in the context of this game.

    • Riddering

      A loss today wouldn’t have been surprising but after Andy matched Lester so well and A-Rod clutched it up…I want to blame Girardi.

      A lot.

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

    That whole AB I was yelling for Jorge to keep it outside. I don’t understand why he’s going inside to a power hitter. If it’s on the outside the worst he does is double or walk. I just don’t understand the pitch sequence.

    • J Squared

      That’s what i was saying, wide zone… guy’s obviously trying to pull the ball… he doesnt have Center Field Power…

  • JGS

    yes you can–it should be four out of four

  • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

    I think you can complain. If we lost with phil or mo or even any other righty, then oh well, but putting in coke and expecting to face 4 righties in a row is just awful.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    How do you guys roll over before the end of the game? Crazy.

  • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

    We knew Girardi was hooked on Coke. Apparently he sniffed a few lines in to leave him in there for the heart of the order consisting of righties.

    • JMK

      Did I miss Daryl Strawberry Day at Yankee Stadium?!

  • charlespoet

    I thought the Yankees got rid of Scott Proctor.

  • Giacomo

    Jesus christ, Victor Martinez. What was he doing, all excited and such like a fucking animal? Did he go back into the clubhouse to break out the champagne? He’s sucked the entire series and they’re still 4.5 games behind. either way, they’re going to get their ass kicked the coming weeks (they have a tough schedule) and they shouldnt treat that homerun as the one that sent them into the world series. freakin monkeylosers.

    anyway, the game isnt over. absolutely NO REASON why we couldnt go to Hughes. NONE.

    • Jeremy

      It was his first big moment with his new team, I’ll cut him some slack.

      Now let’s score some runs off Bard and make V-Mart realize he wasted his time.

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

      They’re not using Hughes 3 days in a row. Hughes is under the Joba Rules.

      If you don’t like it, blame the GM, not the manager. And if you don’t like it, you’re wrong.

  • Drew

    Haha, if Joe would’ve pulled Coke after the Pedroia single people would be whining that he is “micro-managing.”

    • southernyankeefan

      Not if he pulled him for Hughes.

      • Drew

        Well maybe Joe came into the game knowing that Phil is not available tonight.

    • DCR

      ….No people would have understood that Phil Coke is not very good, Phil Hughes is.

    • Tony
      • Drew

        Are you numb to the fact that maybe, just maybe, Phil was not available out of the pen tonight?

        • V

          Who’s fault is that, Mr. Joe “I use Phil Hughes for 5 pitches a game” Girardi?

          • Drew

            You can blame it on in him if you want. That doesn’t change the fact(assumption) that he went to Cokey because Hughes wasn’t available.

    • J.D.

      Hey should have pulled him after the ellsbury strikeout, thats what I figured he had in mind………………yea damonnnnnnn. Sorry it had happened as I was writing this.

  • Mike Ox

    Coke in the 8th? Really?
    Why?

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    why no Hughes thou. I think Joe got too cute with the BP.

  • Russell NY

    Prediction… Bard doesn’t face all 3 batters this inning

    • http://twitter.com/PerminioNeto Permínio Neto

      You’re the man.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Hideki looks wayy overmatched.

    • charlespoet

      Nope… he is just a streaky hitter who is still the best option off the bench

      • JobaWockeeZ

        …Look up at definition of OPS. And look at Hideki’s and compare that to other DH’s. Oaktag much?

        • charlespoet

          Sorry, I don’t do drugs. Not sure what drug Oaktag is the street name for but people in here seem to all use it.

          • charlespoet

            Looked up OPS = Only Posting Shit….

  • DCR

    Sorry, I am complaining about it. There is no reason Coke should have faced Pedroia or Martinez. That needs to be Hughes.

    • Chris

      Hughes has pitched 2 days in a row. He didn’t throw many pitches in the game, but he still got warmed up and came in. I’m guessing that he wasn’t available today.

  • Accent Shallow

    Martinez is a power hitter. Isn’t it better to keep him facing the deep part of the park, rather than the short porch?

    • Brazilian Yankee

      It’s better to have your best pitchers (Hughes or Rivera) pitch to their power guys.

  • EvoLuTioN

    can EASILY complain when the game was won if he had just used hughes like ALWAYS. He fucking threw 9 pitches in 2 days.

    I can’t wait to hear girardi’s excuse. Coke got his lefty out and did his job. Now to leave Coke against the heart of the order? He’s a fly ball pitcher that gives up BOMBS, why the fuck would u leave him in especially after pedroia got on base? fucking STUPID

  • Pasqua

    From ESPN, “The Red Sox battled their way through 31 innings of shutout ball in which they used all the gut and grit they could muster, but to no avail. Until Victor that is. Until Victor Martinez made them remember that they are the Red Sox. And they have risen.”

    That about right?

  • Lanny

    No ones complaining about Hughes in the pen now. Coke should be strictly lefty’s only.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Lanny sighting for the first time this series? Yanks must be losing!
      I love when the trolls come in out of nowhere.

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

      HEY GUYS! THE YANKEES ARE LOSING SO LANNNNNNNY’S HERE!

      • Russell NY

        holy poop (for lack of a better word). Please god don’t let this be another 15-inning game.

  • M18

    gotta feel bad for andy, really wanted to get him a W after the way he’s been pitching

  • No Halladay

    That Girardi is bigger than that shitty sandwich big

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

    Cue B-Jobber argument from Phillips….

  • acb

    i can see coke in for the lefty but to leave him in for the top of bostons lineup is a questionable call. either way we had a righty in bruney if hughes wasnt available

  • Brazilian Yankee

    For those of you (drew) saying it was Coke’s fault, just remember it was Girardi who left Coke in there. If he sucks (and he does), then the manager should take him out.

    • Pasqua

      Coke doesn’t suck.

      I’ll step down for further questioning.

  • danny

    ughhh im so mad right now, that hr could have been avoided, i dont get the god damn love affair, i really dont.

  • Tank the Frank

    Girardi had no intention of winning this game. He uses him for 1/3 of an inning two nights in a row…but he’s nowhere to be seen tonight. I thought it was a good move not keeping Hughes in last night, simply so he could pitch tonight. Absolutely inconceivable.

  • Jeety

    Ok that’s dumb, i really believe the yanks win in spite of girardi…

    Hughes is in the bullpent to be the 8th inning guy… then why isnt he pitching the 8th… if thats not the spot for him then he should be starting.

    and if he’s pitche 2 days in a row… it was 1/3 of an inning both times… b/c girardi was an idiot and wasted him both times. Why can’t you let the kid pitch. this is why we blow these games, because girardi is an idiot.

  • cjc

    Hughes with the are you kidding me look

  • BigBlueAL

    Its games like tonight and the at times head-scratching moves/non-moves that Girardi makes that does not give me much confidence in him making important decisions come October.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Even Hughes was like WTF!

  • danny

    heh, hughes is just as pissed as we are

  • No Halladay

    Shit this games probably over, 3/4 isn’t bad but seems like it

  • J Squared

    Just, 6.5 games is a lot more than 4.5 games… especially when we have to make a West Coast trip and go to boston after we play toronto.

  • Little Bill

    Girardi always uses 7 relievers to get 6 outs at the end of games, except this one. If Hughes is unavailable, use Bruney to face Martinez and bring in Mo to face Youk. Putting the clamps on Boston is worth it.

  • Giacomo

    Well, Bard & Papelbon will overmatch us. This sucks.

    Joe Girardi is a dickwad and Victor Martinez’ facial expression makes me throw up

    • Tseng

      What now?

  • Reggie C.

    Girardi makes another head-scratching, numbnutts move. Coke in small doses is the only way he should be used.

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

      DAMON!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!

  • charlespoet

    This is actually better than people think. Now Papelbon can come in and blow the save giving the Yankees a sweep and a complete Boston failure.

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

    It’s a lot to expect a 4 game sweep. I’m not sure who is a better option for that inning other than Mariano, but I’m not sure why Hughes can’t pitch after going 1/3 of an inning for two nights. He should be able to go 2/3 tonight, no? Or even 1/3 and Mo for another 4 out save. This is the game where “micro-managing” isn’t an awful idea.

    Coke has been shaky at best lately. Maybe you let him face Pedroia. Fine. After he stroked one he has to get the hook, no? I’m baffled.

  • Bugsy

    only thing this series lacked was a papelbon blown save.

  • No Halladay

    Bruney instead of Coke at the least?

  • southernyankeefan

    Its ok it wouldn’t be surprising to get to paplebum

    • southernyankeefan

      Or Bard whoever ill take it.

  • Ivan

    Im still a little bit ticked that Hughes didn’t pitch the 8th.

  • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

    My only guess is that Girardi is a mad genius, and he figures the perfect capper to this series would be a comeback off papelbon, demoralizing the sox beyond revival. Therefore, he intentionally blew the lead to set us up for it.

    • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

    • adeel

      He did not forget to manage… he is obviously putting Hughes overall health above sweeping the sox. The majority of us agree with this, but I don’t think he should baby him this much.

      That said, the yankees have had fewer injuries this year, so maybe his babying is working.

  • EvoLuTioN

    damon and tex went back to back for a record right? i think its a yankee record or something

    • Jeremy

      6th time, it is indeed the record for Yankee teammates.

    • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

      6 times- record for yankee teammates

  • Cokie

    CHICKS DIG THE LONG BALL. I think I need to wash my pants a little.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    TEN MINUTE LEAD

  • Russell NY

    Phil Coke = 1 inning, 2 runs
    Throw-Hard-Guy = .2 inning, 2 runs

    Coke > Bard

    lol

  • Bob Stone

    It’s gotta kill BoSox fans when Damon hits key home runs against them like tonight.

  • BigBlueAL

    A healthy Arod scores easy on that double.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Last year A-Rod scores on that one.

    i love swisher in this spot

  • Bob Stone

    Morgan – you idiot – ARod didn’t tire going to third – he got the F’ing STOP SIGN. Morgan is so stupid.

      Rob Thompson = invisible.

  • Ivan

    Daniel Bard is really nuttin more than absolute clone of Kyle Farnsworth. He really is.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    swisher is hilarious he just likes walking to first

  • Bugsy

    i’m so glad billy bean schooled swisher and not steve phillips.

  • Souter Fell

    Everytime i hear a commentator say that, the person always gets out

    • Souter Fell

      except this time, Mo be praised

  • Frank

    I still want to hear Girardi’s explanation for using Coke

    • adeel

      He knew this would happen in the yankee half.
      Giaradi is psychic… but his psychic power only allow him to see half an inning into the future.

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

      Hughes is under the Joba rules, they don’t use him 3 days straight. If you don’t like it, blame the GM, not the manager. Also, the way they’re handling Phil is 100% correct.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    Quote of the night poll:
    a) As he continues to get better he’ll get better-Morgan
    b) Let there be beer and Nachos for all my men-Damon
    c) Anything you can do I can better-Tex

    • JobaWockeeZ

      B and C.

  • Drew

    what is with announcers not understanding why a hitter would want to take a base!! ahhhhhh

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    Did Nick Swisher offend Okajima recently?

  • Jeremy

    He got that hit, assholes.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Swish!!!!! BUT THE YANKEES LOST!!!11!

        That should seriously be Sterling’s HR call.

  • Alan

    Swisher shuts those ESPN idiots up, LOL~

  • Ivan

    Boy gotta love that 4th outfielder for the yanks.

  • Bugsy

    oh this weekend couldn’t get better.

  • LiveFromNewYork

  • dkidd

    BEST BULLPEN IN THE MAJORS

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

    Pass that fucking baton Swish.

  • A.D.

    “Maybe he though he was still playing with the A’s, just wanted to get on base”

    Little moneyball dig by Joe Morgan

  • Zack

    swish says FU to Miller, Phillips and Morgan

    • espn stinks

      Morgan still didn’t give him full credit. He said “he didn’t hit it that hard”, instead of something like “he muscled it up the middle”. It’s impossible for Morgan to give a Yankee a full compliment. They’re all backhanded compliments.

  • Bob Stone

    This has got to be tearing the heart out of Red Sox Nation.

    • NYQ

      It is being sucked into a blackhole in Yankee UNIVERSE

    I love this more than Tequila….and I LOVE tequila

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    I mean, it’s not like the Yankee bullpen had to pitch 7 or so innings two nights ago, either.

    • EvoLuTioN

      and its not like the red sox DFA’d both abused pitchers since then

  • EvoLuTioN

    cano only got that hit since swisher wasnt in scoring position

  • Salty Buggah

    Can I bat next?

    I want to take some hacks against Okajima

  • LiveFromNewYork

    There aint nothing see saw about this

  • Bob Stone

    ESPN Box Score is totally screwed up on their web site. Shows the score as 1-0 after it showed it 3-2 a few minutes ago.

    Guess braodcasting and running a live box sore at the same time is too much for ESPN.

  • putt

    I effing love this team!! I get such a different vibe compared to recent years. Awesome!

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Definitely. Best Yankees team in a few years IMO.

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

    Tonight’s performance is the equivalent of giving a child a lollipop, walking away, and then sprinting back just as the kid gets it near his/her tongue and not only snatching it away at the last second, but beating the living shit out of him/her in the process just for good measure.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Nice to see the team covering for their stupid manager.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      +1.

  • BigBlueAL

    I gotta say that stadium sounds loud as fuck tonight.

  • Souter Fell

    Alright Mo. Let’s do this!

  • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

    I was reading some sox fans commenting today and they were all bitching about how much they wish they had swisher, hes a sox kinda player, yanks stole him, blah blah blah. this is killing them

  • Jeremy

  • J Squared

    TEH DEPTH IS NO MATCH.
