  • Dela G

    lets keep it going yanks! :)

  • Bill R

    Makavelli i wouldn’t call this the B Team maybe the B+ team..

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      The B team is molina at catcher, swish at first, pena at short, hairston at third, hinske in right

      • Makavelli

        So we’re VERY close to the B-team is what you’re telling me?

        • Ghost of Scott Brosius

          Not that close, we still have arod and posada in the lineup, a sure-fire and a borderline hall-of-famer. Thats a big difference

          • Makavelli

            McGuire was a surefire Hall of Famer for a while too…lol

      • JobaWockeeZ

        That’s like the C team.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Pena proves he is G too.

  • Cokie

    Damon = Steroid Freak.
    Clearly.

          Yeah, I did the same. :P

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

    I missed it, what happened to Jeter?

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

      HBP in the foot in the first.

      • A.D.

        Phew, was afraid of a hand.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      HBP on foot

    • JSquared

      It’s a bruise… probably an extra day off against Snell tomorrow…

  • Drew

    Ha, talk about efficient.

  • Tampa Yankee

    60 pitches thru 4 is respectable. Way to go AJ

  • Drew

    fugghetaboutit

  • Zack

    60 pitches through 4, its amazing how 2 innings can turn a pitch count around

  • nyrfan

    9 pitch inning nice

  • No Halladay

    OK, I’m at work, what’s the score, someone who’s chillin and having fund give me a summary.

    • JSquared

      Jeter HBP in the first inning on the foot, now out of the game. Jeter scored in the first on a bases loaded groundout.

      Randy Ruiz homered off A.J. Burnett in the 2nd.

      Johnny Damon had a lead off Homerun in the 3rd.

      Cano has a leadoff Homerun here in the 4th.

      *Pena made a diving catch off Vernon Wells’ bat.

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

    Jeter bruise on his foot, will have x-rays @ the stadium

    • Salty Buggah

      Hope he’s OK and nothing serious

  • Salty Buggah

    44 pitches through the first 2…16 pitches in the last 2

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Hes now back on track for seven. Amazing how one good inning can do that

  • Drew

    Woot woot!! Robbiee

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

    Don’t ya know!

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

    He loves those empty bases!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    I posted this last night- robbies hitting .421 leading off an inning, .486 against lefties. Before that homer

  • Joe R

    Robbie Cano. Dont ya know! (Know how to do it when you had 2 men on)

  • Salty Buggah

    Leadoff every inning please Robbie!1!!

  • Ivan

    That Cano is some player uh?

  • Reggie C.

    cano heard the thread plea & answered.

    Cano: our future leadoff man?

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

    Swisher is so selfish.

  • Zack

    4th OFer clogging the bases

  • Ivan

    Swisher is paid to hit not walk.

    • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

      He must think he’s still with Oakland.

      /Morgan’d

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

        Haha, that comment pissed me off to no end.

      • Drew

        Nah,
        Swisher is a good walk guy, that’s why he walked.
        /Morgan’d

      • Salty Buggah

        whoa, he said that?

        • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

          Yup. It was after that at-bat where he singled in two runs after Swish thought he got hit by a pitch.

          • Salty Buggah

            wow thanks for pointing that out.

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        I almost smashed something when I heard him say that. Someone needs to smack him in the face

      • Zack

        that dude was loved in Oakland. i went out to a game his last year out there, 90% of the jerseys were Swisher

        • Ghost of Scott Brosius

          Whod they trade him for? I was surprised beane would let one of his guys go like that, especially when he epitomizes his system

          • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

            Fautino de los Santos, Ryan Sweeney and Gio Gonzalez.

  • Salty Buggah

    More Base-clogging for Swisher!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Oh swish, you such a sneaky ninja

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

    Juuuuuuuuuuust back in time.

  • Drew

    haha, umps suck. I love it.

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

    Lol Swisher was so out.

  • Salty Buggah

    Anyone remember Cano’s power potential. A 25-30 HR guy, right? In this Stadium, he may actually hit 30 HRs, especially as he enters his prime years.

    • Zack

      too bad he doesnt have the grit to be a player of Pedroia’s level

      • Salty Buggah

        yea, no one on the Yanks is even close. Gardy is the closest but thats a relative term.

        • Ghost of Scott Brosius

          We should trade for david eckstein. He was pedroia’s grit instructor at arizona state, he wrote every single book on the subject

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Eric Hinske: Mall Cop

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

    Joe West is gross.

  • Drew

    Holy shit, is Yes going to show us the right angle?

    • Drew

      guess not.

  • Zack

    so i guess that Eric Hinske needs to play alot more bandwagon is getting lighter by the game

    • Drew

      Eh, double yesterday, I still like him at the plate for the most part.

      • Zack

        so do i, just not against LHP and as a part time player

    • JSquared

      Took 5 pitches and a bad decision by the Home Plate Umpire to get him out. i’ll take it if we win and rest someone else.

      • Zack

        i didnt say he was Cody Ransom; but all those ‘sit Swisher for Hinske’ supporters are disappearing

  • JSquared

    Joe West… just wants to get off the field to get some food.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    When did Swisher become a speed demon?

  • Salty Buggah

    base-clogger Swisher moves up!

  • Cokie

    So what kind of contract does Johhny D command next year?
    3 years/21MM?

    • JSquared

      If he wants to stay a Yankee, 1 year and a club option. whatever the going rate is for old outfielders, guys will get signed before him so, it’ll gauge his price.

      • Drew

        I don’t see him or Boras accepting a one year deal with a team option. Considering how he’s played this year, and considering our other options (trading the farm to Tampa for Crawford or signing Holliday or Bay for big money), I think we need him more than he needs us.

        • Zack

          How many big mark teams are going to offer a multiyear contract to a 36 year old LF with no arm and even if he bounces back just average for range who’s banged up alot?

          • Drew

            Boston homecoming(unlikely but they may have an opening).
            Anyone in the AL that could use a DH.
            The Mets.
            Braves.
            I dunno, let’s not under rate his bat this year.

            • Zack

              and those teams are going to look at his Yankee Stadium/Road splits too.

              ‘Anyone in the AL that could use a DH.’ – no its big market teams only.
              Angels? They have enough corner OF/DH
              Boston? They didnt resign him then, why give him multi years now?
              Mets? Maybe but hes going to suck in that park
              Braves? Had to cut 1m Glavine just to add McLouth
              Detriot? in 90 ABs Guillen contract gets guaranteed, and they already have Willis, Bonderman, in dead money

              • Drew

                Someone will make a 2 year offer.

                • Zack

                  you can say that, but the Royals, Twins, Baltimore, and all those crappy teams can be taken out of the discussion.
                  He has a .315 obp and .737 ops away from YS

                • Drew
                • Drew

                  You were reading his lhp split.

                • Zack

                  shit my bad. but still hes not the same player on the road

          • Drew

            Also assuming we don’t get Dunn or Manny, I’d love him as the DH. Then of course we’d have to fill the LF hole. I just think this year will reward him with more than a one year deal.

    • Drew

      Ha, Boras will probably ask for 3/32mil

      • Zack

        and i asked for a mustang when i turned 16.

        how many big market teams are going to give him 3/32? He’ll get what Burrel got at the most, hopefully just 1 plus option with the Yanks though

        • Drew

          Ha i didn’t say he’d get it, but you know Boras.. Asks for the moon.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Too much.

  • Salty Buggah

    Im still waiting for Swish to start HRs at home soon. Damon knows how, maybe he should teach him just to hook the ball towards RF.

    • putt

      He’s doing it on purpose to throw an element of mystery into the bandbox theory…he’s so crafty.

    • Zack

      me too, but just imagine how good hes going to be once he starts to hit at the stadium

      • Salty Buggah

        yea, he’d be pretty beastly

  • Matt

    Seriously, why do they play the PC Richard and Son whistle after every strikeout?

    • JSquared

      That’s the advertisement. The reason P.C. Pays them.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Sam Elam is nasty, but not in a good way.

  • Dexception32

    He’s gonna hit at the same level for at least the next two years, I say you give him 2 and an option, he deserves that. He plays big, in New York, he’s built for this stadium, and I would predict a bounceback somewhat defensively next year, to average…there is no reason you can’t offer that.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Agreed. And he’s just such a good clubhouse guy, which i know sounds trivial but its been so important to how well wer playing and the different feel of the team IMO

  • Salty Buggah

    Who do you want: Aaron Hill or Robbie Cano? Hill has a more power but Cano has a higher BA. Both are not the greatest OBP guys. Cano has better D and is a bit younger.

    I know most of us like Robbie so they will choose him but try to give an unbiased answer.

    I say Robbie.

    • VO

      Robinson

    • putt

      no doubt, robbie. plus, as a lefty, he’s built for this park.

    • JSquared

      Cano. This is Hill’s first great year.

      • Zack

        hill did have 63 XBH in 07, and had concussion problem last year so thats a throw away

    • ShuutoHeat

      Robbie

    • jjyank

      Robbie all the way. Though I may be biased, I feel guilty because I’m wearing his “old school” batting practice shirt from when he wore # 22 right now haha.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Aaron Hill is a scrappy, hard-nosed play-the right-way ballplayer, and Cano is a lazy, undisciplined free-swinger who takes to many plays off at the plate and the field.

      Robbie all day long.

    • Tank the Frank

      Robbie all the way. No question. This is Hill’s best year by far. Robbie has a longer – and better – track record. Hill may end up with more HR, but Robbie will hit plenty of those.

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

    If Wagner can be healthy, should the Yankees consider that or would the price be too steep, considering how depleted the Mets’ system is?

    • Drew

      I haven’t heard anything on his velocity.
      Also, I’ve never liked him so I’ll pass.

    • Zack

      ‘price’ as in his salary or prospect they want in return?

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

        Prospect.

        • Zack

          if the Yankees are taking his entire salary and buyout then Mets are getting nothing in return. Like the other guy said, dont know what his velocity is and everything while hes rehabbing, but i wouldnt give up anything significant

    • JSquared

      Pass.

    • Tank the Frank

      The Yankees already have a power lefty reliever with a good track record coming off an injury. No need for two.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    AJ has some good stuff today.

  • Salty Buggah

    AJ made Lind his bitch there.

  • JSquared

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

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    If I were a ballboy on the foul lines, I would give the foul balls to chicks all day long.

    • Dela G

      i’d also have a pen to write my number on every ball i hand out to the hot ones

  • Dela G

    what an awesome K to overbay

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    AJ!

  • Dexception32

    BBTN said Wagner was throwing 96 in A ball yesterday

    • Tom Zig

      Interesting.

      Anyone think he’d make it through waivers?

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

        I think someone in the NL would take him first anyway.

  • Salty Buggah

    AJ has K’ed their good hitters but not their bad hitters. Probably trying to be efficient.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Michael Kay must be mistaken. Theo changed the game, not the Yankees.

    /ESPN’d

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

    Paul had a .360 OBP and an IsoD of ~80. He walked his fair share.

  • Dexception32

    I think Wagner is an interesting option, you know he’s gonna do his damndest to stick it to the mets….what better way than as a yankee, and he works much better as a piece of a good team instead of the focal point….

    • V

      Do you know what a reply button is?

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

    Best poll result EVER

  • Klemy

    You know, they just aren’t getting the swings on AJ that they did on Mitre…hmmm. lol

  • Tom Zig

    Chances Johnny Damon finishes the year with 30 HRs?

    He only is 15 HRs behind Pujols and 1 ahead of A-rod.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Very very good

      • Tom Zig

        Completely possible?

        1, 40 HR hitter (Tex)
        2, 30 HR hitters (Damon, A-rod)
        4, 20 HR hitters (Swish, Matsui, Cano, Jorge)
        2, 15 HR hitters (Melky, Jeter)

        • Ghost of Scott Brosius

          Yep. Not sure Tex gets 40. I feel like itl be real close, maybe 38

        • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

          4, 10 HR Hinske, Hairston, Molina, Gardner.

          nah, just kidding about Gardner :)

    • Zack

      he needs what 8 in 50 games? its possible

  • Salty Buggah

    I see it working already. Swish teaches johnny to walk more while Damon will now teach Swish to hit a HR to RF.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Yayy x-rays negative

    • Salty Buggah

      thank Mo!

  • Dela G

    great to hear that jete’s foot will be ok

  • Dela G

    a-rod is a good hitter

    • Salty Buggah

      He OK. ;)

      With that double, he’s .004 points away from OPS’ing .900 again.

      • Dela G

        :P

  • JSquared

    A-Rod’s just better.

  • Yankees_Universe

    Does AROD get to 30HR, 100 RBI this year? I think he will get HRs, not sure about 36 more RBIs.

    • Salty Buggah

      I expect a really hot streak coming so maybe yea. He didn’t have that many more at this time last year, right?

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

    I would never in a million years sit there and yell “Jorge!” every 2 seconds for the entire AB.

    • JSquared

      especially when he strikes out on breaking balls all day.

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

        That was a fastball.

        • JSquared

          Wasn’t talking about that at bat, just in general, we’ve seen him striking out on breaking balls the last week.

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

            Oh, yeah, offspeed pitches are bringing the pwn on Posada.

  • Yankees_Universe

    I think last year is not right comparison for him..he was all messed up with Divorce and Madonna..

    • Salty Buggah

      dont forget the quad injury that made him miss like 25 days

      • Zack

        and the hip for the last weeks of the season

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    When the jays get their injured starters back next year, they’ll have a nice glut of young pitching talent to trade from. Romero, richmond, rzcepcinski, mcgowan, marcum, litcsch

    • Dela G

      they are scary pitching wise for next year

      i wouldnt trade any of them

      • Zack

        especially with McGowan coming back from frayed labrum is no gurantee. Litcsch had surgery on 6/12 so hes not back until midseason. So depth can go away quickly- unless you’re boston

        • Dela G

          UNENVIABLE DEPTH!!!!111!!

          [/gammons

          • Klemy

            And if you end up short on arms, it’s not like you can wave a magic wand and three new arms are shwoing up.

            /FRANCESA’D

            • Zack

              ha that commercial

          • Yankees_Universe

            It will be fascinating to see what happens!

            /Mike Greenberg

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        Agreed, but I think they def should have traded, or should trade, roy. Given all that depth I don’t get why they were so fucking insistent on getting drabek AND happ. They shouldve taken a package built around the position players, brown and donald, and they’d be in much better shape going forward

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    USA or Mexico today? U.S. is 0-18-1 in Azteca Stadium. Big World Cup implications.

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

      I’ll predict…Mexico wins 1-0 on an early goal.

      /knows nothing about soccer

      • Salty Buggah

        I’ll say 2-1 USA

        /doesn’t know too much about Futbol but hopes that will be the score.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Depends what squad bradley’s using. the one that lost to brazil would have a good shot. tjey’ll probably draw

    • JSquared

      USA!! Depends if they have all of their good players on the field. i know they won a game last month with their C-Team. A-Team has a good shot at beating Mexico.

      • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

        …isn’t the USA like the Yankees w/RISP at that stadium, like 0 for 18???

  • Salty Buggah

    0-7 with RISP today

  • Dela G

    what the hell is a green mountain k cup?

    i shopped at WB mason my fair share and never saw them

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Only for vips

      • Dela G

        guess i need to get out the black card… ;)

    • Klemy

      Green Mountain is a coffee company and K-Cups are the single use container for Kuerig Machines. Green mountain is just one of many K-Cup suppliers, but they must’ve signed a contract of some type with W.B. Mason to get mentioned all the time.

      I have a Kuerig and the coffee is awesome.

      That’s all if you were serious about the question. If not, then I look stupid!

      • Dela G

        no it was a serious question

        thanks for explaining it to me :)

    Thank God Joe West wants to get something to eat.

    GAHHH That third pitch was a strike

    • Salty Buggah

      yea it was close but the ump hasnt called that all day

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Do not want to see hill up bases loaded

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

    …Jorge. My sweet Mo.

  • JSquared

    Thanks Jorge.

  • Bugsy

  • jsbrendog

    did gamecast make it 3-3 then take it back and make it 3-2 and put encarnacion back on third???

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Now that was one Posada should have gotten.

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

    Oh come the fuck on.

  • Dela G

    fucking A

    tie fucking game

  • Bill R

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    That was not good by jorge. not good at all

  • Danny

    WTF.

    ugh so annoying with these 2.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    Posada needs to take some catching lessons.

  • Drew

    Ugh, that one bounced off the plate i think.

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

    I’m not as angry at the passed ball/wild pitch as I am at the fact that AJ threw another damn curveball. He didn’t come close to biting on the previous too, so why throw it again?

  • Evan NYC

    I hope we catch the Burnett of last start in the playoffs and not this Burnett…

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      What’s crazy about burnett is that he can be really wild and still dominant. It’s kind of a matter of luck, and how good the catcher is, whether you got seven innings 1 run or 6 innings 4 runs

  • JSquared

    So… ball coming in the dirt… You jump up to block the ball… therefore letting it go through your legs… please tell me thats a pass ball.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Posada has no fucking clue where the ball’s going. No clue

    • Dela G

      nope

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

      Neither does AJ.

      • http://ibbw.wordpress.com Jamie

        Effectively wild?

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        Nor the hitters, which is part of why hes so good, and sometimes difficult to watch

  • Dela G

    my god

    thanks jorge

  • Dela G

    FINALLY!!!

    now lets get some fucking runs

  • http://ibbw.wordpress.com Jamie

    This is frustrating.

    Jorge’s biggest problem has always been his inability to get his KNEES down as he moves the glove to cover the 5 hole AT THE SAME TIME.

    What. The. Fist.

  • Salty Buggah

    OK, we got out of that but that “wild pitch” is pissing me off.

    cmon offense

  • Danny

    its like deja vu with aj and posada every game. ugh.

  • Klemy

    Perhaps today’s B team should’ve included Molina in the lineup?

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      I was surprised posada was playing today, day after night, difficult pitcher to catch on the mound

  • JSquared

    I thought catchers were supposed to block the ball in front of them in the dirt… Jorge jumps up? im’ still confused…

    • Drew

      I think that one bounced off the plate.

      • JSquared

        plate, dirt, block it, stay down, not up.

      • Tank the Frank

        Didn’t look like it. The frustrating thing is that was the pitch he called for. He knew it was coming and let it go right between his legs.

    • Evan NYC

      He never get’s down on a knee or what not to block the ball. He always tries to “olay” it with the glove. Frustrating indeed.

  • Salty Buggah

    B-Jays got lucky with a bloop hit and a wild pitch…we need some luck now. Hopefully we can get a hit with RISP soon.

  • Tank the Frank

    Don’t jump on me for saying this but I’d like to see Molina catch AJ from now on. I’ve seen enough.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Yeah I agree. Put the better defensive catcher with AJ.

  • Zack

    how do you have a career high in WP at age 32?

    • Salty Buggah

      probably half has to do with Jorge.

    • Klemy

      By having Jorge behind the plate for you? ;)

  • Makavelli

    How come when our pitchers are dominant they never stay dominant…they last 2 or 3 starts then disappear back to mediocrity for a few…then go back to dominant.

    Meanwhile, Beckett started out rough but has since been disgusting ever since. Hasn’t gone back to mediocrity once since he turned it around.

    Can’t say the same for Burnett, Joba, etc…

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      I don’t think either joba or burnett have had the kind of career beckett has, or would be considered on his level in terms of performance. Stuff and potential yes, but not performance.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      And? At least they win their starts.

  • YankeeScribe

    Yet another example of what Yankee pitchers dislike about Jorge

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Damn cano just missed that

  • Klemy

    We may be getting some people pinch hitting off the bench in the not so far away future. They didn’t really think they’d sit the entire game, did they? lol

  • Tank the Frank

    Well, we should win the battle of the bullpens. Plus, we should see a Teix pinch hit appearance.

    • Makavelli

      Toronto has had one of the best bullpens of the past few years. Ours has been a roller coaster ride but has been good lately. It’ll be interesting.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Roller coaster ride? Yeah early in the season. That’s really about it.

        • Makavelli

          True…

          Once we got rid of Veras…and sent down a few of the other dirty laundry…it hasn’t been that bad. Claggett is the bullpen version of Ian Kennedy…

        • Bo

          Torontos pen is horrible.

  • Tank the Frank

    Phil Coke!! Hava Coke and a HR! – er – I mean a smile. :-)

  • Danny

    LMAO swish looked like he wanted to climb over the gate and beat the crap out of the camera man haha

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

    Here comes Scott Proc–I mean Phil Coke!

    • Makavelli

      You mean Doc Proc…

  • Danny

    Coke, really?
    i feel like this guy freken pitches everyday, jeez.

    and NO HRs!

    • Danny

      phew that was close lol

    • JobaWockeeZ

      …Because he’s the only lefty in the pen.

  • Salty Buggah

    phew that was close

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

    YES Right move. Girardi and Coke must be having a lovers quarrel.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Or he’s playing the matchups which by know we know he loves doing it. Coke is the only lefty so I don’t know why seeing Coke a lot comes as a surprise.

      • Bo

        Bout time Girardi wised up

    • Randy A.

      He needed someone to play grab ass with now that Ransom is gone

  • Drew

    D-Rizzl time.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Coke is amazingly bad.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Oh come on be fair

    • Rob H.

      Hyperbole much?

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Nothing new with the majority of Yankee fans.

  • zack

    Alright, clearly I need to change my login name, even though I am 99.99% certain I was the first “Zack” here, dammit…

  • Bo

    Coke is just very average. Girardi finally realizes he should only be pitching to lefty’s.

    • Tank the Frank

      Bah. His minor league splits say different. He was a starter in the minors and did very well. He also had a long stretch this season where he was dominating.

      He’s got an above average fastball and slider and should do very well in the bigs the more he matures. Keep in mind this is his first extended stint in the majors.

  • Makavelli

    Coke is a Joke.

    He’s more like Caffeine Free Coke…

    Or shooken up, Flat Coke…

    • JobaWockeeZ

      …Nope.

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      NEW COKE!!!

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

    This is me being sick of Joe G’s platoon happiness.

  • Yankee1010

    Where have I seen this lately? The Yanks put a bunch of runners on in the early innings, don’t put it away, and then the offense takes a nap for a while.

    • Zack

      this team put it in cruise control and they never come from behind right?

      • Yankee1010

        Did I say that?

    • Nady Nation

      Not sure where you’ve seen that. Chances are it wasn’t with the team you’re currently watching, who has won 8 of 9.

      • Yankee1010

        Again, I’m not saying that I’m unhappy with the team. Not at all. However, what I said is 100% fact.

    • Bo

      The last 3 games have played out exactly like that. Can’t let talented pitchers settle down.

    • Makavelli

      It’s been that way for many many years…

      They’ll destroy teams for so many days…then take a xanax pill and take a nap

      Then again it’s all about the pitching. Most of those Sox games were won with insane pitching (or terrible Sox offense)

      Once the pitching goes sour…the team goes sour…for the most part anyway

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        Scoring runs is hard. Yankees do it better than pretty much anybody. Count your blessings you root for a team that scores and is always a threat to come back

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Holy shit Yankee fans will never be happy and will always find a way to find something wrong with the team.

  • Salty Buggah

    WTF? Im listening to Sterling/Waldman for the 1st time and how can two different companies sponsor the same “call to the bullpen?”

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Coke to the rotation?

    I keed, i keed

  • KW

    JoPo not having a good game behind the dish…

  • Tank the Frank

    I’m noticing a trend. I can’t put my finger on it.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    why posada?

  • Salty Buggah

    in come the irrational people…

    more wild pitches…

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    This is getting dan uggla in the all-star game type ugly for posada

    • Bo

      Ha

  • Dela G

    boy not a great jorge day

  • Bill R

    Put In MOLINA!

    • Drew

      give me a break.

      • Bo

        Shocked these people arent asking for Cervelli.

        I guess hitting the game winning HR last night doesnt matter today

  • zs190

    Ugh, another wild pitch?

  • Salty Buggah

    No K’s by D-rob? BUST!

    cmon offense!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Attaboy drob

  • Bo

    That’s how you earn more chances and in high leverage spots.

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

    Coke isn’t bad. His secondary pitches are just worse this year. His slider is less effective and his change is just about league average.

    So unless it’s a good day, he’s effectively a one pitch pitcher. His fastball is good, but one miss in location and trouble.

    • acb

      what pisses me off about coke is it always seems he comes in the face leftys and gives up hits

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

        He’s better than Felix Heredia and Gabe White.

      • Bo

        So you’re saying he’s a one pitch pitcher with an average fastball? And how is that good?

        He has blowing Oct game written all over him.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Nice reading comprehension.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Teix to hit for pena? Hairston comes in to play short, swisher moves to right to replace hinske?

  • theyankeewarrior

    If Robertson can learn to get big outs, he will be a huge help over the next couple months…. (Probably won’t get much of a chance in October) And then could fight it out with a slew of relievers for the set-up role next year.

  • JSquared

    Posada… TEH immunity to pass balls.

    • Drew

      You want Molina in there?

      • Bo

        Cos Molina would def hit a homer like Posada did last night

  • Salty Buggah

    can we please get some runs off of League today?

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

    I absolutely love that Robertson can dial it up top 94+ on his heater.

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

      to, not top.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    TAKE IT TO their PEN!!!

  • Drew

    Kay, you’re horrile.

    • Drew

      and horrible too.

      • Tank the Frank

        Hahaha he’s so horrible he’s horrile.

  • Salty Buggah

    ah fuck close Melky

  • acb

    melky is back to being melky

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Of fuck anybody else’s YES just get fucked up?

    • JSquared

      nope.

  • Makavelli

    Who would you rather have Brian “The Flash” Bruney? Or Brandon “The Crow” League?

  • Salty Buggah

    Nice pena! no DP guys…we need runs

  • Dela G

    nice hit for pena!

  • Drew

    Godzilla time.

  • Mike Pop

    Godzilla, the juice is on you now.

  • theyankeewarrior

    If we only watched Yankee games and paid no attention to other teams around MLB, would we think Brandon League was the best pitcher in the league?

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

    Epic fail.

  • Salty Buggah

    ah WTF ramiro
