• Anthony

    You’ve got to be kitten me!

  • Drew

    Jorge though he was fast for a second.

  • Little Bill

    There’s no benefit of trying for 3rd there with 2 outs, Jorge.

    • Drew

      Well there is. Vinny has a couple wild pitches.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Rickyyyy! wait, no… Jorgeeee… damn it

  • Salty Buggah

    What the hell? Why would you do that with 2 outs and a hit is needed to score a run?

  • JMK

    To watch Jeter outtakes and behind-the-scenes videos for Ford, I’d have to be assured that there are pictures of his ex-girlfriend supermodels.

    • JMK

      Nude pictures, that is.

  • charlespoet

    Jorge is either good or just stinks.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      How does this game prove that? He hit a “double” and had the baserunning blunder.

      • Accent Shallow

        Jorge Posada is an incredibly valuable player. Unfortunately, he’s a 38 year old catcher who might be the worst baserunner in the major leagues.

        (Last sentence is not hyperbole, unfortunately.)

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Free out.

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

    Flash is still waiting for his invitation to the Inglorious Basterds premiere.

  • Dela G

    aight, lets get more runs for CC after this inning

  • Bugsy

    Fuck Tarentino. Stop fucking making snarky films about exploitation films. you can’t get any more post-modern than nazi exploitation film and now you decide to make a nazi exploitation film like it was your own idea. fuck you.

    end rant.

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

      Who’s Tarentino? ;)

      • Bugsy

        that’s how little I care about him

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

          Haha.

    • Bobtaco

      Word. And make the Jews the sadistic ones, and the audience feel sorry for the tortured Nazis. It looks seriously crappy to me.

  • Salty Buggah

    ah damn, hope Johnny is OK

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

    Peace, Adam Pt. Dos.

  • Salty Buggah

    Strongest arm infield in the world…we have it.

    • DreDog

      Herpes, he gave it to Jessica Alba.

  • Salty Buggah

    take the 2 HR’s out and CC has a perfecto going

  • JobaWockeeZ

    And the whole Mike Francesa ad is contradicting to what you’ll really get…

    • Tony

      No one loves his fans more than Mike Francesa.

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

    Tex makes that play.

    • Dela G

      you and i prolly make that play ;)

  • Dela G

    hey Swish on base again!

  • Bob Stone

    The answer to the Quiz is . . . Fernando Valenzuela.

  • JMK

    I’m tired of these New York Smokers Quitting ads. I don’t see New York Fat Stoppers promos.

  • zs190

    Vin Mazzaro has pitched badly, they’ve committed 3 errors plus the JoPo double, and we only have 2 runs, sigh.

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

    Is that a person yelling or a seagull choking on a shell?

    • JMK

      Hopefully a person choking.

  • Bugsy

    my goodness fucking score runs. well, at least we’re fucking up Mizarro’s WHIP.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    That is shitty luck for Melky.

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

    Nice range, Rajai.

  • Drew

    SOn of a bitch! Melky been hittin into some shit luck lately.

  • Accent Shallow

    That’s out of YSIII, and a double with many other players in center.

    Maybe Melk is heating back up.

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

      No way is that out of the New Stadium. Melky didn’t hit it that hard and the park isn’t that small.

      • handtius

        no, but it would have been a double with a lot of other centerfielders.

    • Accent Shallow

      Would possibly reconsider first part of the sentence.

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

    Melky’s balls are getting way too acquainted with Davis’s glove.

    • Salty Buggah

      does glove mean what I think it means? ;)

      • JMK

        Mary Carey says “hi”.

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

        Salty Buggah…are you wearing pants?

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

        It’s for you to decide. ;)

  • Salty Buggah

    more bad luck for Melky

  • Bugsy

    goddamn rangers blew a 5-0 lead.

    • ShuutoHeat

      oh for fucks sake….

  • Salty Buggah

    cmon Johnny

    • Accent Shallow

      Was he mentioned on the broadcast, or is this a non-sequitur?

      • Dela G

        mentioned on the broadcast while talking about jeter

    • Accent Shallow

      So . . . post critical of Tex tomorrow?

  • handtius

    Melky’s been getting robbed the past few days. Hopefully he’s coming out of his funk.

  • Accent Shallow

    I’m very hopeful that they can knock out Vinnie from Jersey this inning, and get into the bullpen’s soft underbelly.

  • Dela G

    cmon damon

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Heh Damon had to make sure that the ump calls that a ball.

  • Drew

    C’mon Teixy, just get one in.

  • Bugsy

    Mark, send me a Tex Message.

    • trueblue

    great walk for damon!

  • Salty Buggah

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

    Sigh.

  • JMK

    Why does this happen so often?!

  • Bugsy

    jesus fucking christ. I’m voting for Joe Mauer.

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

      Haha, IETCVM

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Unbelievable.

    Tex. You’re KILLIN’ me.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Fucking Tex.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    You’ve got to be kidding…

  • AJ

    Wtf again?

  • Dela G

    fucking A marky T

  • Salty Buggah

    boo! damnit Tex

  • AJ

    I have a job interview near Yankee stadium on grand concourse, is it even conceivable for me to drive? Will I find parking? Will my car be safe?

    • handtius

      have you ever been to yankee stadium?

      • AJ

        Yeah but I always take the D or the 4 I’ve never driven.

        • handtius

          your car will be fine. there’s parking. why don’t you just take the train then?

          • AJ

            Cuz I live in Long Island and it’d be a 2 and a half hour commute by train. Mapquest says driving it';d be only 40 mins. Plus traffic of course.

            • handtius

              I don’t know. traffic from LI to the Bronx can be pretty bad.

  • charlespoet

    Ha ha… this team can no longer hit with RISP, especially with bases loaded. That is the third time in two games…

    • Salty Buggah

      slow down and relax

      • charlespoet

        I am not worried. I think it is funny to watch. They were red hot and now not so much. That is baseball.

  • AJ

    Next to Franz Sigel Park.

  • Little Bill

    Ugh. Bases loaded for the 2nd time and nothing. They just can’t get that break out hit.

  • trueblue

    Fuckin Tex. Come on… Has he had a hit in Caifornia in 09? Sure as hell doesn’t feel like it

    • Dela G

      agreed

      thank god they only have 3 more games i think left in CA

      against the angels….

      • JMK

        Ut oh…

        • Dela G

          hahaha i know, right?

    • Salty Buggah

      doubled just yesterday…

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    why are they swinging at the first pitch with risp but not when there is no one on? The guy can’t throw strikes.

    • whozat

      Seriously. That was inexcusable, Tex. The guy has no idea where the ball is going. ARod did the same thing yesterday with Tomko. Horrendous.

  • Danny

    well that was annoying

  • Dela G

    i wasnt able to bombko yesterday against us, but how the hell did he beat the yanks?

    • Salty Buggah

      luck IMO…missed a bat only once all game

      • Dela G

        wow thats incredible

        the yanks should’ve taken advantage i guess

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

    5. Sergio Mitre.

  • Dela G

    thank god hairston was held up there

    cmon cc, put them away

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

    Jesus, they are hitting CC hard when they’re actually making contact. I can has another strikeout plz?

  • Bugsy

    Fuck this. I’m going to the store to buy some Ice Cream and some Beer. Hopefully, we’ll be leading when I come back.

    • Drew

      haha, nothin like ice cream and beer.

  • Salty Buggah

    cmon CC

  • Brazilian Yankee

    We could use the real CC and the real Yanks offense tonight.

  • Chef

    nice swish

  • Drew

    Great job by Swish, got it in quick.

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

    Nice; wrap up the inning, CC.

  • Dela G

    what a great play by swishahouse

  • JMK

    Weird how it seems to either be a K or a well-hit ball.

  • Karl

    nice play from Mr. Adventures in Right Field

  • Salty Buggah

    wow nice Swish…cmon CC, no 2-out runs today please

  • Teix is the Man

    ON TO TEH 5th!

  • Salty Buggah

    Like I said before, strongest armed infield in the world…we have it.

  • I hate Tom Gordon

    Heheh one good turn deserves another.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    How about some runs now? Hopefully some hits with RISP.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Let’s get this shit over with so they can leave this fucking shit farm of a stadium.

      Shit farm. I like it.

      • ShuutoHeat

        :P it rolls off your tongue

      Have you ever been there? It’s even worse in person. It makes Shea look like CitiField.

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

        It makes House Party look like House Party 2!

      • trueblue

        The entire area around the park is nothign short of an open asshole.

      • ShuutoHeat

        I’ve never been to the stadium, but just by seeing it when the Yanks play there makes me wanna puke.

        My ex-girlfriend is from San Fran and she hates Oakland.

  • Salty Buggah

    BTW we didnt give up a 2-out run!!!

  • JMK

    Stop swinging at the first pitch!

    • Chef

      oh right!! you’re the blog poster who should be telling major leaguers how to hit…

      really???

  • Salty Buggah

    cmon Alex

  • Bugsy

    do you guys see matt lauer behind the backstop?

    • Dela G

      i saw him too

  • Salty Buggah

    work that OBP Alex

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

    First pitch swings after walks make me want to smash things.

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

      Matt SMASH!

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Ken Singelton once brought this up. He said that if a guy is not incredibly wild (like Ollie Perez), the first pitch after a walk may be the best pitch you see all night.

      • Chef

        thats exactly the logic when hitters do that. i think we should realize these do this for a living.

  • Bugsy

    this guy has allowed 9 baserunners and only 2 runs! c’mon fellas, who does he think he is? joba?

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

  • Karl

    I cannot believe this. How much worse luck can we have.

  • Dela G

    how the hell do they keep on getting outs like this?

    and how was that not an auto out on a-rod when he threw to second?

    • trueblue

      Nosemar stepping on 1st took away the force

    • Drew

      force was over when they tagged first.

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

      It’s because Nomar stepped on 1st before throwing so A-Rod had to be tagged out, not forced.

    • handtius

      he took the out at first, taking off the force.

  • JMK

    Wasn’t there just a post about the Yankees hitting too many fly balls? The Yanks should have read that post before the game. Way too many DP’s and grounders.

  • Bugsy

    i hope posada didn’t get beltre’d there.

    what’s the injury delay?

    • JobaWockeeZ

      The umpire.

      nvm, i see it has something to do with the ump.

  • handtius

    ha. that was hysterical.

  • Dela G

    that was hilarious

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

    That laugh took up Tony Pena’s smile quota for two weeks. In exchange for that, he will scowl for the next month.

    • BigBlueAL

      Pena still smiles way more than Girardi. Actually I dont think Ive ever seen Girardi smile period.

      • AJ

        Well good I want him to be serious about his job.

      • handtius

        You’re not paying close enough attention.

  • 27 this year

    I have a bad feeling Jeter is going to GIDP. However he has been hot and seems to be going 3 for 4 everyday.

    • handtius

      FAIL+1

    • Esteban

      thank god you were wrong

    • 27 this year

      I am perfectly happy with being wrong.

      Jeter wants to steal MVP from Tex (regardless of the fact that Mauer is by far the best player, right up there with Pujols)

  • handtius

    melky wanted a pony ride.

  • Danny

    lol at tony pena

    Funny, yes. I still say yanks bring in Bruney to drill someone.

  • Esteban

    I was expecting a DP. Just I got this. I’m just gonna expect the worst from now on.

  • 27 this year

    Jeter’s on fire! He must be pissed that all the New York beat writers are saying Tex for MVP and he just like “What about me?!”

    Is Hairston always this bad?

  • Chef

      No way. Manny would have been on his cell phone. Upon finding the ball, he’d toss it into the stands thinking it was out number three.

  • Esteban

    Scott Hairston= Fielding Fail tonight

    It’s about Godforsaken time.

  • Little Bill

    The hits are pouring in now. CC and a rested bullpen can finish this.

    • 27 this year

      yea, at the very least, yesterday’s lost did not cost us overworking any pitcher, Burnett didn’t even hit 100 pitches.

        I think the fact that there’s any debate about anyone aside from Joe Mauer being the MVP is hilarious.

        • Tank the Frank

          That’s what I mean. One blogger wants Tex for MVP and the entire sports world goes apeshit. Tex is having a nice year and all, but you cannot rob Mauer again with the year he’s having.

    I am fully expecting Rorshach to roll onto the field on his mini-bike. He puts out his cigarette and pitches the rest of the game.

    Passing the baton.

  • Ivan

    Well that will do.

  • Dela G

  • Tank the Frank

    Clutch pitch-taking abilities.

    Jeter’s OPS on the road coming into the game was .837. He has some more homers at home, but you can no longer credit the Stadium for his good numbers.

    • Bugsy

      He atleast deserves an honorary MVP award like Koba last year.

      • Bugsy

        Kobe*

    • Tank the Frank

      No his power has been impressive (for him) this season. He just drilled one to dead CF at Safeco the other day.

  • Esteban

    A-Rod shows the rest of the team how to take a pitch

  • Bugsy
