  3. Cokie says:

    Damon = Steroid Freak.
    Clearly.

  4. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Who’s this kid? He’s no Jete.

  5. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    Hallujah Pena.

  6. Evan says:

    Pena with the DIVE!!

  7. JSquared says:

    Pena with the diving play.

  8. I missed it, what happened to Jeter?

  9. Drew says:

    Ha, talk about efficient.

  10. Tampa Yankee says:

    60 pitches thru 4 is respectable. Way to go AJ

  11. Drew says:

    fugghetaboutit

  12. Zack says:

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

  13. nyrfan says:

    9 pitch inning nice

  14. No Halladay says:

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

    • JSquared says:

      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.

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

  16. Salty Buggah says:

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

  17. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

  18. Drew says:

    Woot woot!! Robbiee

  19. Mike Axisa says:

    Robbie Cano, whaddya know.

  20. JSquared says:

    CANO!!!!!

  21. Bill R says:

    Robbie Cano! Dontcha know!

  22. Dela G says:

    cano killed it!

  23. VO says:

    CANO CAN DO!

  24. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Robbie!

  25. Stryker says:

    DONTCHA KNOW!

  26. Evan says:

    He loves those empty bases!

  27. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

  28. Joe R says:

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

  29. Salty Buggah says:

    Leadoff every inning please Robbie!1!!

  30. Ivan says:

    That Cano is some player uh?

  31. Reggie C. says:

    cano heard the thread plea & answered.

  32. Paul O’Neill likes: food.
    Paul O’Neill dislikes: computers.

  33. Riddering says:

    Cano: our future leadoff man?

  34. Swisher is so selfish.

  35. Zack says:

    4th OFer clogging the bases

  36. Ivan says:

    Swisher is paid to hit not walk.

  37. Salty Buggah says:

    More Base-clogging for Swisher!

  38. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Oh swish, you such a sneaky ninja

  39. Mike Axisa says:

    Juuuuuuuuuuust back in time.

  40. Drew says:

    haha, umps suck. I love it.

  41. Lol Swisher was so out.

  42. Salty Buggah says:

    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 says:

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

      • Salty Buggah says:

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

        • Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

  43. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    Eric Hinske: Mall Cop

  44. Jordan says:

    Joe West is gross.

  45. Drew says:

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

  46. Zack says:

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

  47. JSquared says:

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

  48. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    When did Swisher become a speed demon?

  49. Salty Buggah says:

    base-clogger Swisher moves up!

  50. Cokie says:

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

    • JSquared says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

            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 says:

              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 says:

            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 says:

      Ha, Boras will probably ask for 3/32mil

      • Zack says:

        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

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      Too much.

  51. Salty Buggah says:

    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.

  52. Matt says:

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

  53. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

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

  54. Dexception32 says:

    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 says:

      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

  55. Salty Buggah says:

    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 says:

      Robinson

    • putt says:

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

    • JSquared says:

      Cano. This is Hill’s first great year.

    • ShuutoHeat says:

      Robbie

    • jjyank says:

      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 says:

      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 says:

      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.

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

  57. Jake H says:

    AJ has some good stuff today.

  58. Salty Buggah says:

    AJ made Lind his bitch there.

  59. JSquared says:

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

  60. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

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

  61. Dela G says:

    what an awesome K to overbay

  62. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    AJ!

  63. Dexception32 says:

    BBTN said Wagner was throwing 96 in A ball yesterday

  64. Salty Buggah says:

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

  65. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

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

    /ESPN’d

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

  67. Dexception32 says:

    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….

  68. Jordan says:

    Best poll result EVER

  69. Klemy says:

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

  70. Tom Zig says:

    Chances Johnny Damon finishes the year with 30 HRs?

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

  71. Salty Buggah says:

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

  72. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Yayy x-rays negative

  73. Dela G says:

    great to hear that jete’s foot will be ok

  74. Dela G says:

    a-rod is a good hitter

  75. JSquared says:

    A-Rod’s just better.

  76. Yankees_Universe says:

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

    • Salty Buggah says:

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

  77. Jordan says:

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

  78. Yankees_Universe says:

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

  79. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    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 says:

      they are scary pitching wise for next year

      i wouldnt trade any of them

      • Zack says:

        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

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

        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

  80. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

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

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

      /knows nothing about soccer

      • Salty Buggah says:

        I’ll say 2-1 USA

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

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

    • JSquared says:

      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 says:

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

  81. Salty Buggah says:

    0-7 with RISP today

  82. Dela G says:

    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 says:

      Only for vips

    • Klemy says:

      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!

  83. Gah, work out of it, A.J. Roll another one.

  84. Salty Buggah says:

    oh shit…cmon get out of this AJ

  85. Russell NY says:

    I’d be down for a DP right now

  86. Evan says:

    One pitch, two outs. Be the ball!

  87. Stop. Talking. About. Food. Ugh.

  88. Makavelli says:

    Yankees B Team > Blue Jays ???

  89. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Fuck.

  90. Danny says:

    ughh c’mon aj!

  91. JSquared says:

    great, another lucky hit… 3 in a row? come on.

  92. Mike Axisa says:

    AJ Burnett is trying to singlehandedly improve the team’s come from behind win total.

  93. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Anyone else think our outfielders, especially considering how most hard hit balls over your head are gone in this park, play too deep?

  94. Salty Buggah says:

    ah WTH is with Chavez getting big hits against us.

    Get a DP AJ

  95. Russell NY says:

    Lucky SOBs

  96. Bugsy says:

    can a fella buy a little luck here?

  97. Jordan says:

    Here comes Lord Charles.

  98. Huge. Now get out of it, A.J.

  99. Mike Axisa says:

    There you go, Allen.

  100. Evan says:

    He did not fear you that time, Inglett.

  101. JSquared says:

    Good pitch AJ.

  102. Dela G says:

    finally let inglett know he’s fucking inglett

    nice k

  103. Salty Buggah says:

    one more out AJ

  104. JSquared says:

    Thank God Joe West wants to get something to eat.

  105. Jordan says:

    GAHHH That third pitch was a strike

  106. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Do not want to see hill up bases loaded

  107. Jordan says:

    …Jorge. My sweet Mo.

  108. JSquared says:

    Thanks Jorge.

  109. jsbrendog says:

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

  110. Evan says:

    Now that was one Posada should have gotten.

  111. Mike Axisa says:

    Oh come the fuck on.

  112. Dela G says:

    fucking A

    tie fucking game

  113. Bill R says:

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

  114. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    That was not good by jorge. not good at all

  115. Danny says:

    WTF.

    ugh so annoying with these 2.

  116. Jake H says:

    Posada needs to take some catching lessons.

  117. Drew says:

    Ugh, that one bounced off the plate i think.

  118. 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?

  119. Evan NYC says:

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

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

      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

  120. JSquared says:

    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.

  121. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

  122. Dela G says:

    my god

    thanks jorge

  123. Dela G says:

    FINALLY!!!

    now lets get some fucking runs

  124. Jamie says:

    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.

  125. Salty Buggah says:

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

    cmon offense

  126. Danny says:

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

  127. Klemy says:

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

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

  128. JSquared says:

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

  129. Salty Buggah says:

    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.

  130. Tank the Frank says:

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

  131. Zack says:

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

  132. Makavelli says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

      And? At least they win their starts.

  133. YankeeScribe says:

    Yet another example of what Yankee pitchers dislike about Jorge

  134. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Damn cano just missed that

  135. Klemy says:

    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

  136. Tank the Frank says:

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

    • Makavelli says:

      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.

  137. Tank the Frank says:

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

  138. Danny says:

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

  139. Jordan says:

    Here comes Scott Proc–I mean Phil Coke!

  140. Danny says:

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

    and NO HRs!

  141. Salty Buggah says:

    phew that was close

  142. Jordan says:

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

  143. Drew says:

    D-Rizzl time.

  144. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Coke is amazingly bad.

  145. zack says:

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

  146. Bo says:

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

    • Tank the Frank says:

      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.

  147. Makavelli says:

    Coke is a Joke.

    He’s more like Caffeine Free Coke…

    Or shooken up, Flat Coke…

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

  149. Yankee1010 says:

    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 says:

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

    • Nady Nation says:

      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 says:

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

    • Bo says:

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

    • Makavelli says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

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

  150. Salty Buggah says:

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

  151. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Coke to the rotation?

    I keed, i keed

  152. KW says:

    JoPo not having a good game behind the dish…

  153. Tank the Frank says:

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

  154. Salty Buggah says:

    in come the irrational people…

    more wild pitches…

  155. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

  156. Dela G says:

    boy not a great jorge day

  157. Bill R says:

    Put In MOLINA!

  158. zs190 says:

    Ugh, another wild pitch?

  159. Salty Buggah says:

    No K’s by D-rob? BUST!

    cmon offense!

  160. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Attaboy drob

  161. Bo says:

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

  162. Jordan says:

    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.

  163. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

    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.
