Game 114 Spillover Thread II
Trusting the Yanks' Joba plan
  • Drew

    Come on guys, I gotta go to dinner in ten minutes. Let’s get this shit done.

  • JGS

    well, the Rays aren’t at the ballpark yet because they are on the West Coast…..

    yeah, and in the fourth inning

    • Mike Pop

      Haha.

  • JSquared

    Gaudin… liking New York.

  • V

    Porcello got a suspension? Really?

    I mean, I know 5 games is a token suspension for SPs, but he shouldn’t have gotten anything.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      He sent the gritty Youk to the ground. He should get banned for doing anything to precious Youk.

    • http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_S0CViLms5ys/Sd54tE5sVMI/AAAAAAAAAho/0fxSZIso2OM/s400/Swisha+House.jpg Kevin G.

      Maybe MLB suspended him because they think he hit Youk intentionally, not for kicking his ass.

  • Salty Buggah

    someone hope for a Tex walk-off

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      or Damon.

  • J.D.

    Did anyone else loose track of how many times Kay has said you “You always bring your closer in the top of the ninth in a tie game.” Don’t get me wrong I’m not a Kay hater, but he’s so repetitive sometimes.

    • J.D.

      Granted he didn’t say it today.

    • VO

      He thinks the more he says things the better chance it has of being true.

  • VO

    What channel is the soccer game on?

    • BigBlueAL

      Telemundo or Mun2.

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

    Kay reading minds.

  • Tubby

    Ready your breakfast and eat hearty… For tonight, we dine in hell!

  • JGS

    yeesh, Youk got off easy

    • V

      Yup.

    • Zack

      and forced the other starter out of the game in the 2nd inning, make their bullpen go the distance, basically giving tigers no chance at winning

  • V

    Melky :-(

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

    Dang it, that was ball four.

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

    What the fuck was that, Melky? Bad Melky. Bad.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Melky in slump-mode big-time

  • Dela G

    wow melky, terrible idea

  • Salty Buggah

    bad Melk! 2nd time swinging at ball 4 today

  • Mike Pop

    Zack says:
    August 12th, 2009 at 4:41 pm

    thats new age baseball. wait the other team out until the 10th then boom, put in chad gaudin

    Can you say title? Cause I can.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      I can say title too. Ti-tle

    • Zack

      whatd i tell you? shutdown 10 and 11 and boom gaudin gets teh win

  • Mike Pop

    Aww, fuck you ump!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    What the fuck that wasnt a strike at all

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

      Not even close.

  • Salty Buggah

    WTF? that was ball 4 to Tex fuckin ump

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

    Speaking of ball four, that wasn’t even close.

  • BigBlueAL

    Cmon. First 2 batters get the count to 3-0 and cant get on base.

  • Tampa Yankee

    BS! that’s ball 4

  • Yankee1010

    Was strike 1 to Teixeira in the 3B dugout?

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Damn missed his pitch

  • Chip

    So Tex at first, Swish in right and Hairston in at short?

    • Mike Pop

      You’re good.

      • Chip

        Us umpires know a double switch coming when we see one

        • Mike Pop

          IETC

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

          You’re an ump, too? Nice.

          • Chip

            Yeah it’s just during the summers until I’m out of college. I’m sure you know what a thankless job it is

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

      You’re so wise, Chip…like a miniature Buddha covered in hair.

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      Does anyone remember moves like this when Torre was manager. I swear I can’t remember any game where Torre sacrificed the DH by moving him to the field and it seems like Girardi’s done it 3 or 4 times this year.

      • Chip

        Not really, Torre almost never used the bench except for the pinch hit a slugger late in the game when it was his off day. Hairston wouldn’t have nearly as many at-bats if Torre weren’t still around

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Ughhhh swinging for the fences leads to popups

    • Chip

      But sometimes it leads to walk-off homers which is awesome

  • BigBlueAL

    That was a pathetic inning.

  • Salty Buggah

    booo…win it next inning!

  • Dela G

    fucking a

    i know league can be dominant, but every other team in the league seems to hit him hard

    • Dela G

      then the closer comes and dominates

    • Mike Pop

      He is the anti Arthur Rhodes.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    It would be nice if the offense could wake up from this coma.

  • BigBlueAL

    Hairston at SS might be an adventure.

  • Danny

    ew, thats was a shitty half inning.

  • Giacomo

    THIS GAME HAS BEEN SO BORING

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

      Your face has been so boring.

    • Mike Pop

      It’s going to end well young padawan.

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

    I really doubt that highlight shows are the reasons guys want to hit walk off home runs.

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

      You know, that would be an interesting study to do: whether there is a meaningful change in batter approach during extra innings or if it’s just blowing smoke.

  • Chip

    Well look at it this way, Gaudin hasn’t allowed a single run as a Yankee. Therefore, he can go as long as it takes to get that run in

    • Mike Pop

      He’s gotta start in 4 days though. Just get some work in, I don’t want to see him out there for more than 3 innings.

      • Chip

        Yeah I was just being facetious. I’d very much like to see an A-Rod homer next inning

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

        +1

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

    Whammy.

  • V

    I think it’s underrated how beneficial it is to have a guy who can play both 1B and RF average or better.

  • Giacomo

    adam lind looks like a chipmunk

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

    http://tinyurl.com/qvy9m4

    Look where ball four to Tex was. Terrible.

    • Danny

      WOW.

    • Salty Buggah

      yea bullshit

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

      Yikes.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Rainy day = offensive malaise

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Damn camp groups, leaving the stadium early just to get back to their bad food and bonfires and first sexual experiences. No loyalty

    • Jersey

      You left out the murderings by a freak in a hockey mask.

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        Haha good call. No more than they deserve.

        • Jersey

          Ha!

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

    I’m not fundamentally opposed to walking Overbay here.

    • BigBlueAL

      Neither was Gaudin.

    • Chip

      Agreed, he’s killing us lately

  • Giacomo

    DO THE GAUDIN CALL!!! WHIRPLOOSH WHIRPLOOSH!!!

  • Souter Fell

    So is it Mitre and Gaudin this weekend? Oy.

    • JMK

      Seems to be. Mitre on Saturday, Gaudin on Sunday. Could get dicey. But if it means we have Joba for the postseason, I’m not opposed to it.

  • Salty Buggah

    Why does Waldman think every changeup is a splitter?

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

      She still dreams of Clemens?

    • JGS

      because Jawn, she doesn’t really know this game

    • JMK

      My guess is because she’s a complete moron. I’d rather hear Fran Drescher call the games. At least her voice isn’t as annoying.

  • zs190

    Um, 40 pitches already for Gaudin. He’s got to be out soon, right?

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

      This has to be it for him, IMO.

      • Chip

        I wouldn’t be surprised if they let him go quite awhile. I mean he did throw 85 pitches just a week ago so he’s stretched out. Plus, there’s a chance Ace could get his start if he’s out there too long which would be perfectly fine with this guy

  • Salty Buggah

    get him out Gaudin

  • No Halladay

    I thought Gaudin was starting Sunday?

  • Danny

    ah, lets go chad!

    • Danny

      :)

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

    I love the 2009 version of Vernon Wells.

    • Ivan

      I love Wells period

  • Ivan

    Wells sucks balls.

  • Jersey

    get some?

  • Souter Fell

    Thank you. Let’s put one on the board and call it a day.

  • Giacomo

    yeah gaudin!!! now lets be sat down quietly 1-2-3 with a walk somewhere in there.

    • Mike Pop

      I’m not sure I appreciate your negativity.

      • Giacomo

        Mr Mike, whenever i predict something bad to happen something great happens. so please, just go along with it.

  • Salty Buggah

    nice job gaudin! I hope he can be a bit more efficient during his start

  • Mike Pop

    Nothing like having that guy who can dominate the 10th and 11th innings.

    Vernon Wells is a bitch, wants to slam the bat after every failed at bat.

  • Souter Fell

    I do enjoy seeing that Ogre is still getting work.

  • Tony

    Gaudin >>>>> Mitre

    • Chip

      Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.

      • Mike Pop

        Well, he is right now. There’s no question but Tony hates Mitre. Mitre just coming back from rehab is not a good starting pitcher. Mitre could be a decent back end starter once he gets his feel back.

        • Zack

          and Gaudin has sucked in the NL all year, and even worse inside Petco somehow

    • Tony

      Guys… Mitre sucked BEFORE surgery..

  • jersey

    gaudin looks good.. a little wild but still good…

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Everything is a strike now.

  • BigBlueAL

    This strike zone is getting ridiculous.

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    FUCK YOU BLUE.

  • JGS

    that wasn’t close, was it

  • jersey

    is it me or did this strikezone get huge recently?

  • JSquared

    NOT EVEN CLOSE JOE FATBOY WEST!!

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

    West just wants A-Rod to hit a walk off instead.

  • Tampa Yankee

    Not even close

  • Salty Buggah

    how the hell were strike 2 and 3 Matsui strikes????

    Fuckin WEST!!!!!

  • Danny

    well at least hes consistantly a bad ump.

  • Yankee1010

    Was Strike 3 to Matsui in the same mythical part of the strike zone as Strike 1 to Teixeira?

    • JSquared

      yes.

    • SouthernYankeeFan

      yep

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    I think the team has stopped trying to build rallies in these spots, there all seduced by the walk-off homer

  • Mike Pop

    …fuck

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

    CHARGE!!!

  • JGS

    I really don’t think I could ever get tired of watching replays of A-rod’s walkoff from Friday night

    oh come on

  • JMK

    Oh shit. Not good.

  • VO

    Oh no.

  • Danny

    MOTHERFUCKER.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Charge the fucking mound!!!!!

  • Giacomo

    QUICK, GET CODY RANSOM ON THE PHONE!!!

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

    Oh crud.

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

    It hit his wrist, not his elbows you morons.

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

      Nevermind, I suck. Ugh this is not good.

    • Mike Pop

      You are the moron!

    • Dela G

      it hit is elbow

    • Marcus

      Is the wrist better somehow? Serious question.

  • Salty Buggah

    oh WTF!!!!!! HE BETTER HE OK!

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

    This is not good. Not good at all.

  • SouthernYankeeFan

    Not good at all.

  • Dela G

    damn, these guys are taking out the superstars one by one

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    CHARGE THE MOUND!!!

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

    Oh shit. Shit shit shit.

    They don’t have anyone to play third either.

    • Brooklyn Ed

      Tex to 3rd, Posada to 1B, and Molina catch?

  • JMK

    Call Youk.

  • jersey

    on purpose or not (probably not) someone on toronto still has to catch one inbetween the numbers…this is ridiculous

  • Brazilian Yankee

    This is bullshit. Let’s hope Alex is OK.

    What a fucking horrible game. First we lose Derek, now we may lose Alex.

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

      How is it bullshit? There is no way he did that on purpose. Why would he put the winning run on base to send a message that didn’t need to be sent?

  • BigBlueAL

    That shit must sting like a mother.

  • Salty Buggah

    Oh Mo! Please let Jeter and Alex be OK and be healthy immediately.

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

    Don’t worry. If he comes out, Alfredo Aceves will play third. He’s that good.

    • Mike Pop

      Hairston can cover the whole left side.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    This is some bullshit. Its the last game of the series, they know we can’t retaliate, and there going after our hitters

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

      Why would he put the winning run on base? Seriously? Why? It doesn’t make sense.

    • Marcus

      12-0 when leading after 7 innings!

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

    For some reason, I’ve had an irrational dislike for Shawn Camp. This does nothing to squelch it.

  • Tampa Yankee

    Is he staying in the game? I’m at work and can’t watch.

  • Bugsy

    i cant watch the game right now. but ireally dont like the sound of this. what happened?

  • Salty Buggah

    Seriously! If the zone is gonna be that big, this is never gonna end

  • Dela G

    lol posada FINALLY does something right

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Lets get this shit done robbie

  • JSquared

    Cano for Pie?

  • Jersey

    I wacked my funny bone real good a few months back and there are STILL days when I can feel my fingers tingle. And that wasn’t a major league hardball hitting me.

    Of course, I also don’t have the NYY health staff at my disposal.

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

      And your not as much of a man as A-Rod.

      OR ROBBIE. WOOOOOO!

      • Jersey

        I also never had a thing with Madonna. So I got that going for me.

        • J.R.

          So you dont have the clap?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    • Salty Buggah

      all of them together?

  • Ivan

    Cano is amazing.

  • David A

    Hope A-Rod and Jeter are ok…

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    well…a little let down:

    a) robbie was too lazy to play 12 innings. would like to see more spark from my 2B
    b) its the same old same old first swing robbie…sigh…you’d think swisher would teach him some patience or something?

    • Iowa Yank

      ietc

    • Zack

      ha stop swinging at the first pitch!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    12-0 when tied after 7. Mo be praised!

  • Danny

    love this team :)

  • No Halladay

    When Cano comes through, you know the team is hot. He’s going to shed the El Chokeo private nickname I have for him if he keeps this up.

  • JMK

    Michael Kay said “SEE YA!” with great enthusiasm. Was good day.

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

    Chad Gaudin with his first win in pinstripes.

  • V

    I think the team has stopped trying to build rallies in these spots, there all seduced by the walk-off homer

  • Danny

    hope jeter and arod are okay :/

    • Zack

      they should check helmets at ricky and shawn in the parking lot

      • Zack

        chuck*

    • Dela G

      they should be just fine in a couple of days

  • Bob Stone

    Great win. I feel we got lucky as the Jays kept threatening. It had a feel for awhile of a loss in the works. But you’ve got to love how this team fights and keeps coming back.

  • Chip

    Wow, they left 14 guys on base. And we thought we had RISP problems

  • Tony

    WOO HOO

  • thurdonpaul

    more an more this team seems special
