Pena that’s fucking horrible.
Pena making me long for that world-class high jumper, cody ransom
Brett Gardner >>>>>>>>>>> Ramiro Peña.
no doubt…2 more weeks unfortunately.
He could help us win plenty of games with his speed.
Youk and Porcello each get five game suspension because Bob Watson sucks.
Unbelievable. To put them on the same level (regardless of pitcher/position player) is completely assinine.
WTF? 5 games?!!! That’s it?! Boo…Watson sucks
Wtf? What did porcello do, except dodge a helmet and prevent a crazed madman from raping and maiming him? Would he have been tossed from the game if youk didn’t charge?
He threw a 2 seam fastball too inside.
5 game suspension for position player >>>>> than for pitcher
to answer the question on the other thread:
i’d take league any day of the year
if league could be coached by someone who can teach him to locate his fastball correctly, he could be a dominant closer
Bruney? not so much
Brian Bruney >>>> Brandon League.
Well, it’s a close call.
My bad for jumping the gun.
And he needs to learn to dodge bullets…or he’ll wind up like his brother, the OTHER Crow…Brandon Lee
he does look strikingly Like The Crow
What about the name too!!!
Agree with you completely. I asked for him last night
He’s not on base enough to know what to do…
Sometimes you wonder if some of these guys were plucked off a street bench…but they actually have been playing for years and years…go figure
Maybe “you” wonder that. I don’t think many people here do.
Well that’s good to know. Thanks for letting me know that.
That was Charles Gipson-esque.
On second thought, it looks like he may have been wronged.
Eh, w/e. Matsui leads off next inning.
Hey, Pop’s here! Good to see ya, buddy.
I only come around when Yanks are close to blowing the game.
“I only come around when Yanks are close to blowing the game.”
j/k dont hate me!
nah they come when we are losing
If he’s so god damn important in the bullpen where you can’t look Mo in the eye and say we’re taking Hughes out of the bullpen if Hughes isn’t being used? Even when he is recently he is hardly getting used at all.
I feel you.
Hmm, looks like there was no tag there.
umps hate the Yanks most of the time
I think he got him on the arm, missed the hand but got the arm.
BUT TEH THROW BEAT HIM TO THE BAG!!!!
How is what Richie Sexson did not equivalent to what Youkilis did? Run at pitcher, throw helmet, attempt to tackle pitcher. Ohhh right, mlb loves Youkilis.
Red Sox Propaganda Machine at it’s best…
It’s so ridiculous how much The MLB LOVES the red Sox. I mean come on how obvious did it need to get… Oh wait i know when Ortiz is accused of being on this list now MLB comes out and says it could be fake! Fuck MLB and Fuck the Red Sox!
what did Sexson get? 10?
6 I think. I’m not sure if it was worked down down to six or if it was the original suspension.
why doesnt girardi rest a few people in one day. it seems like we see our main lineup once or twice a week
I think he does a fine job.
im just sayin i would rather have him give a couple people off in the same day. also is today going to be jeters day off?
he did that once and the Lanny’s of the world were bitching that Girardi is dumb taking out everyone at once.
Heh, every time he does, someone complains that he needs to spread out the resting of players.
If only we had Ruben Sierra to guest manage on those off days…
Ouch, that didn’t look great.
That frickin’ hurt.
I’ll admit, I kinda wish they’d rested Posada today.
Jorge, TUCK THAT HAND AWAY.
Cash, please stay away.
then again hes better then mitre
Hey look, Hughes got a haircut. I think.
Since we’ve hardly seen him recently wouldnt know how his old haircut looked.
Broski, two Heinekens.
Not now, Chief; I’m in the fucking zone.
Where’s the fuckin protein, Ma!!
D-Rob got a win earlier in a game during which he threw a grand total of one pitch.
3rd time in his career I believe.
Oh look Hughes is still alive.
WTF Is there no such thing as a strike anymore? C’mon it was right there!
Who got hurt? Gameday said Injury delay without any details..
Posada took a foul ball off his right hand.
Clearly a Yankee…
It’s around that time of the year…
eh cant blame Robo for that walk…good AB by that Chavez
Ugh, why can’t Posada make Robertson and AJ walk less people. He should make them have control. He’s so worthless.
ain’t it the truth, brother.
Um, where was that strike to Chavez?
Whatever, he got the strikeout.
Curveball was high, per Gameday.
Yeah, but it looked closer to a strike than that 1-0 pitch to Inglett.
wtf. i dont understand this anymore.
JOBA i hope you just saw how to GET OUT the number 9 hitter!
D-Rob has been great against lefties this year.
I know it’s asking for a lot, but I long the day that Bruney, Robertson, and Melancon are all healthy and dominating as the tripod to Mo.
Oh look! Hughes for .1 again!!
I used to long for the day when it would be bruney, edwar, and veras. oh well
to be fair, D-rob, Bruney, and Melancon are legit prospects. Edwar and Veras were Indy league guys who we thought we could fix
Bruney..,not so much..picked up from the scrap hip..released by D-Backs.
D-Rob that was nastyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.
oh look matchy matchy.
Hughes is fully rested, why didn’t he just start the inning?
Here comes the Yankees ROOGY. Will pitch to 1 batter, Yankees take lead in bottom of the inning or even if they dont Mo pitches the 9th and Hughes will have 3 appearances in a row of facing 1 batter.
Phil hughes has a rare disease where he can only pitch to one batter. Its tragic but he perserveres
Saving his innings, he starts game 7 of the World Series against Joe Torre’s Dodgers.
Kershaw vs Hughes.
That would be the coolest thing I ever saw in my life
Hughes is the best ROOGY in baseball.
Hopefully that’s what he is here.
Let’s talk about how if Hughes comes in here to face Scutaro and the Yanks don’t score in the bottom of the inning, and Mo comes in the 9th, I will scream.
Here we go with Hughes the ROOGY. Girardi is a dumb manager.
if girardi puts in MO for the 9th im gonna be pissed
Where’s AXL when we need him to predict that Hughes gives up a bomb here?
I remember that guy whatever happened to him?
He said some bad things and had to go away.
awww noo, Hughes cut his hair
What is the point of this change? I really don’t get it.
Gotta keep the 22 yr old righty specialist fresh. Duh.
D rob walked someone?
Our ROOGY got a haircut!
I disagree, Hughes will pitch till they get the lead…could be one batter or four….its a good call here.
Hughes was so bored with his recent lack of activity he got a haircut to kill the time.
Right in the dugout, while Mo was teaching him the cutter.
Al Leiter is blind. Type of pitcher, Hughes fastball slider. Nice.
Nooooooo why would he cut his hair! Didn’t he read the bible!
i wish posada knew how to frame pitches like molina.
Posada gets the pitch and stands up and throws it, i hate it a lot, doesn’t even try ot frame it.
Are you being serious right now? This is unbelievable.
and he has slow reaction time. when the ball is not exactly where it is supposed to be , he moves his glove away from the strikezone, instead of bringing back to strike zone. even if the pitches doesn’t miss by too much.
I wish Molina was a fraction of the offensive player that Posada is.
And if we could somehow mix the best of both, we’d have a pretty awesome result.
Damnit, now i have to cut my hair…
Can’t teach height.
Jeter would have caught that! Thanks Joe!
umm he’s hurt…
Joe didn’t hit him in the foot with a pitch.
So did you miss the part when Jeter left a game with an injury or…?
How on earth could you possibly think Joe would pull jeter as some sort of strategic ploy?
I vote the Yankees sign Scutaro in the offseason just so he never bats against them again.
Sounds good, makes the bench alot stronger also.
Psh, dude is suckering some team playing his way into a starting job.
I’d take Scutaro over Pena any day!!!!
If only we had a spot for him. You know he’s going to boston, barring a theft of hanley ramirez
Seems like a lighter hitting Kevin Millar.
Marco Scutaro, .238/.316/.376 against Yankees in 213 PA, meh.
what’s the deal with Brewers??
If the Yankees get a run, Girardi should keep Hughes in.
No way. Mo is tryin’ to catch Hoffman.
He’ll need a mediocre team and a bigger stadium…Hoffman had both for a very long time…
Chance he would ever do this: zero.
Because, assuming he comes out after the 8th, he’ll have thrown ONE inning in his last THREE appearances. He needs the work.
Eh, in any one run game in the ninth I want Mo(if available).
Sure, but I’d rather rest him after he worked a shaky inning yesterday and has a 6 hour flight tonight.
Well at least Hughes got to face 2 batters today.
Hughes let Scutaro get on so we could get more work in.
This has 4.5 games written all over it…
especially since Cy Beckett goes tonight
No, no it doesn’t.
I never knew the rules changed from 9 innings played to 8. And I never knew if it was a tie game the Yankees lose. Huh I must be stupid.
We forgive you
Yup. The Yankees suck. I wish they weren’t in dead last right. We should give up the season! AMIRITE!
ah shit reply fail
Don’t get too down on yourself. There’s always next year…
I guess I am too
You’re NOT forgiven!!! lol
i dont even know how you think that considering how clutch this team has become.
Yeah, clutch with all the good players in the line up and decent pitching. Bad pitching + B squad = cross your fingers…
The funny thing is, this “b-squad” is probably still a TOP offense in baseball.
I been here since the bottom of the 7th, and I’m already tired of your negativity.
Not you, Bugs.
Chop gave it a ride but not enough on it
That was giving it a ride? The right fielder had to come in on it. Just because the crowd yells doesn’t mean it’s going anywhere.
i was being sarcastic
so would anyone be good for a walkoff?
That crowd sound was wonderful.. RAAAAWRRaaawwww…darn.
How was that a strike to A-Rod?
If Posada hits a home run this inning, will the reason to bash him be “Well if Molina was catching, we wouldn’t have even needed that run”?
Yeah, but i’ll be happy with a win no matter how it comes.
Molina would of hit one earlier in the game.
right so players are immune to criticism because they excel at one aspect of the game and remain below average at the other.
You’re right, he’s such a bad pitch framer!
Why does League have to own us and suck against other teams?
That hand has gotta still be hurtin, I don’t see him doing anything here.
He fouled the only good pitch he’s had to hit, swinging at balls, as usual.
Yeah he sucks at hitting.
I can’t wait for Jorge to retire, and for people like you to inevitably whine that our catcher is an offensive black hole.
Is “The Crow” still in there on the mound against us?
well atleast in the 9th it’ll be Cano, Swisher, Tex
Has posada ever struck out on an actual strike?
no he sucks at hitting.
brandon league = incredible when he has control
brandon league = incredible against the yanks
That’s because he’s “The Crow”.
“It can’t rain all the time…”
Heckuva job by Posada today.
brandon league, the best relief pitchah evahhhhh!!!!
Hughes better be pitching.
I’d rather see another walk-off anyways guys.
So Youkilis appealed his 5 game suspension? Does he think he could get that reduced? I mean its already a bit too small to begin with.
He dropped his appeal.
I was going to say, he should probbaly shut up and go celebrate.
Youkillis is a punk. Wait’s til he sees a 20 year old scrawny kid before he charges the mound…gutless
hope the sox loose all those 5 games haha
look! hughes is pitching, everyone can stop whining.
Mo must be hurt. lol
Holy shit. 11-0 when tied after 7? That is insane
The Yankees suck.
must be a typo…that has to be 0-11 since we just give up and put it in cruise control EVERY time
Very true. Please check that again Ghost!
small sample size…
Did he fucking call Hughes a failed starter? K now I hate Kay.
I missed it.
What a cunt.
Oh that’s how you say Guadin
Actually, I believe he was referring to the guys who used to relieve back in the day. He was trying to say that relievers today are much better than back then.
Overbay is good against the Yanks too
Drafting relievers in the first round is a waste of a draft pick.
13 hits for Toronto! 13!
Great pitching today though according to the guy who responded to my post above…
I hate when we give up 3 runs!!! WE SUCK!!
When did prime John Olerud come onto the team?
V.Wells = D.Ortiz = Automatic Pop up.
Hughsie the beast.
Can someone tell the guys in the booth that Hughes hasn’t thrown a slider all year and he’s not about to start today?
He hasn’t but his cutter a while back was classified as a slider on Gameday because of the great movement he has on it
Yes, but it is well known throughout the organization that he developed that cutter this year and no longer throws a slider.
And I’m willing to put some cash down on the fact that Leiter, O’Neill and Kay don’t use Gameday.
I know and I agreed with you but I was adding a caveat.
Swisher is definitely due for pie
That name isn’t good, I’m D-Rob’s bitch around here.
what an awesome strike out
Walk it off. Right here.
Swish walkoff – book it.
league for a 3rd inning? hmmmm interesting.
cmon walkoff time…get it over now.
Cano or Swish need a walk-off
“The Crow” still on the mound?
I wish we could pinch hit Cody Ransom in there. Then we could say “He held the Jays for Ransom!” when he hits a home run…can’t we??
Swisher, you gotta bust it down the line dude.
What’s up with Hill this game?
I get angry when Swisher swings at the first pitch.
Don’t need extra innings before the cross country trip.
are you following the team or do you have some other business to attend to?
wow, why did I read that so literally?
Brandon League could be a starter if he throws like this with control all the time
“The Crow” can be anything he puts his mind to…
Well, at least we’ll get to ehar kay talk about how Swisher always seems to have a 3-2 count…
Christ. League is eating his Wheaties.
League has been dirt nasty
We just have no chance against this guy. None
Wow that strikeout pitch to Hinske was dirty.
Tex PH for Pena next inning?
What the fuck! Where was Tex!?!?!
If it doesn’t end, Hairston to SS.
league = dominant for some reason
I want Hinske DFA’s immediately.
HUghes again? or Gaudin.
Why does everybody underestimate “The Crow”???
Never underestimate “The Crow”
Why does kay say free baseball? Its not like after the ninth they let people walk in off the street for free
he means you pay for 9 innings typically
Yes they do
what a time for a debut for Gaudin
Hey, it’s Chad Gaudin.
No Mo here?
Shaky inning last night, six hour flight to the coast, I’d prefer to rest Mo.
Let’s Go Chad! i watched him throw a perfect game against Igawa with AXL a few years back till Cano ruined it!
I remember that ish.
Just mentioned it to my pops.
Alright, let’s see how he does sans-super goatie
What ever you do. DO NOT LOOK AT GAUDIN’S GAMEDAY PHOTO.
How did Gaudin get killed at Petco??
Mo must be unavailable.
That picture of Gaudin on Gameday just doesn’t look right. That should be a crime.
That shit on his chin got some shit on its chin.
Looks like a little kid with a Goatie.
Come on CHAD!
Gaudin was shaking off Posada. What is he thinking? He should just throw. What a primadonna.
Um, thaaaaaaat’s kinda weird, Phil…
what he do?
not enjoyingwatching him pitch
No king felix next series. sweet
We wont see King Felix in the September series as well, if he makes all of his scheduled starts.
Good looking ahead.
get him out Gaudin
Gaudin is a dominating shutdown reliever.
every championship team needs a shut down 10th inning guy
Just in case. You can never go wrong having a guy who can dominate the 10th.
I wanna be the 21st inning guy…if only Cashman was smart enough
thats new age baseball. wait the other team out until the 10th then boom, put in chad gaudin
What’s Gaudin’s third pitch?
we can start talking about the breaks we caught when we win, until then Mr. Kay, it’s 1-1
DFA Mitre now.
well Mitre usually gets 2 outs before giving up a single, Gaudin only got 1 out so far
Good play Damon… wow.
Hughes only threw 16 pitches. Is there any reason he’s no longer in?
to make you mad.
He passed his pitch count.
Hughes isn’t good enough to pitch the 10th inning. Only the 8th. I was suprised G let him have the 9th.
bottom of the order… get out of it without hughes.
nice K on inglett
nasty breaking ball
First K as a yankee!
DOn’t leave a hanging Chad!!
Sorry, I had to…
Michael Kay knows what it’s like to get traded to a different team.
We should trade him to ESPN for a PTBNL
Umm gameday had that as an obvious strike?
Gaudin is quick as hell to first.
get him out Chad
there ya go!
OK lets win it now. I want to see the 2nd half of USA-Mexico w/o having to be flipping back and forth.
Fuck yes!!!! Lets go get em boys!!
Gaudin was GEICO MONEY!
