• Dela G

    now CC can settle down for an inning or two

    and on to the rested bullpen arms

  • ShuutoHeat

    Did I just see Dr. Evil in the Yankee’s dugout?

    • Danny

      lmao i was confused too, i think you’re refering to Gaudin

      • ShuutoHeat

        lol is it Gaudin? hahaha, I caught the chrome dome at the corner of my eye…and I was thinking “Dr evil?!”

        • Danny

          hahahah yea i was like “who the hell is that?” lol

  • JMK

    A-Rod should have run Suzuki over. Bad hip be damned! Is it still NASCAR season?

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      EARNHARDT!!!

  • Dela G

    i also voted CC

  • A.D.

    Thank you to the bats for waking up

  • Drew

    Dang I wonder how fast A-Rod’s fastball is, 93?

  • 27 this year

    CC is at about 68 pitches

  • Salty Buggah

    I leave for a bit and we explode for 5 runs…I’m staying more often now so I don’t miss it.

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      No, leave fir three more…

      • Salty Buggah

        Im usually good luck.

    • Danny

      no leave!

  • KPR

    CC SAYS NO!

  • Bugsy

    imagine how awesome of a basketball player CC would be if he lost weight?

  • Danny

    CC!

  • Drew

    CC is beastly.

  • Dela G

    CC has reflexes like a cat!

    • JMK

      Like a liger.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Complete game?

    • JMK

      Burnett threw one yesterday. It would be great for the bullpen.

      • 27 this year

        yea, with Chad Gaudin pitching tomorrow and the rested pen with a day off on Thursday would allow the Yanks to rest their bullpen going into the Red Sox series and allow them to use their relievers at any time tomorrow. Helps that you can have your good guys pitch an inning each, piece together 4 or more innings and still not burn even one guy.

        • JMK

          Plus CC can challenge hitters more with a big lead and a low pitch count.

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        Yup. All hands on deck for Gaudin tomorrow.

      • Little Bill

        Exactly. They’ll be needed tomorrow and in the Boston series for sure. It’ll be good to have them well rested for the weekend.

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

    HOORAY BEER!

  • 27 this year

    71 pitches through 6.

    • 27 this year

      the last two innings have been like 8 and 6 pitches. He is settling in.

  • Riddering

    Talk about timing. I come home just in time to see the Yanks take the lead and then CC pimps his glove.

    Whoo!

  • Tank the Frank

    How biiiiig is tha suway sawich CC?

    • ShuutoHeat

      you know ZZ..

    haha they suck

  • JMK

    Wow! Another error!

  • Dela G

    great hard hit ball by jeter

  • KPR

    Flaherty has said “sloppy” 4,182 times tonight.

    • ShuutoHeat

      I think he was staring in a mirror.

      • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

        I think he was staring at YOUR MOM

        /hiyoooo!

        • ShuutoHeat

          wow, are we in the 5th grade? or are you one of Flash’s fans?

          i’ll take both :P

  • 27 this year

    Adam Kennedy adn Mark Ellis are good defenders and Nomar isn’t bad himself. His error should have been a hit but Kay pisses me off sometimes.

    • JMK

      What does Kay have to do with this?

      • DreDog

        Kay’s fake Twitter is becoming a favorite of mine.

        • JMK

          Mine too. It’s bad when the parody isn’t that far off what Kay is really thinking, and occasionally saying.

        • Drew

          +1, I check it during every game.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    Mets:
    baseball…ur doin it wrong

    I can has Billy to teh 8th?

  • Mike Ox

    Man the Yanks love them some DP.

    • 27 this year

      I don’t care right now with the lead. Maybe they can get it all out of the system so for the weekend, we can avoid constantly killing outs.

      On a separate note, do you think Boston is going to adjust their rotation so that two of the three games aren’t started by Penny and Tazawa.

      • Drew

        With their depth, I wouldn’t be surprised if they start Masterson and Smoltz.

        • DreDog

          I think they rather start a Smoak type bat.

          • Drew

            We’re going to be in trouble when they trade Green and Okajima for a Strasburg type arm.

  • Salty Buggah

    damn, I’d be pissed if we weren’t up 5.

  • Drew

    CC’s at 71 pitches, I guess he’s good for about 5 more innings.

  • Dela G

    CC is DEALIN!

    Wipin the brow and liftin the head

  • 27 this year

    Been a long time since the Yanks have had pitchers that go deep every game. CC is a horse. 178 innings and counting.

  • Dela G

    All Mark T does is make plays

    • Salty Buggah

      Isn’t that his job?

      Oh, you mean all he does is make good plays? ;)

      • Dela G

        haha yeah those too..

  • 27 this year

    80 pitches through 7

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    Still want to sign smoltz to start against Boston…

    • whozat

      What, you want to spot them one?

  • JMK

    I’m voting for Scott Hairiston.

  • Dela G

    who’s this cat K’ing the 3-4 hitters?

  • Salty Buggah

    Gardy would have gotten to 3rd on that.

    • acb

      he would have gone home actually

  • JMK

    Is Hideki the only player in the league who could not advance to second on that? FDR could make it to second on that!

    • Dela G

      hahahahaha

  • Dela G

    nomaaaaah not having a good nite

  • acb

    imagine the season cano would be having if he was hitting .300 with risp.

    • Dela G

      he would be a smoak type bat

    • Drew

      probably MVPish tbh.

      • acb

        maybe his dad could teach him how to hit with risp in the offseason.

        • acb

          or maybe he could just lead off lol. but seriously i would like to see him bat 2nd in the order when damon sits.

          • Drew

            It will click eventually. He’s just too good…

            • JMK

              Do you think it’s nervousness then?

              • acb

                i think its either in his head or he gets too aggressive. hes hitting like .360 with no one base and .200 with risp.

              • Drew

                No idea what it is. I don’t think there is a reasonable explanation for it.

  • Danny

    HA.

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

    Pay attention to the game you were watching, Flash.

  • Salty Buggah

    Golden Sombrero for Kennedy!

    CC should have brushed off his shoulder after that K.

  • Ivan

    CC to Kennedy: “Im gonna make u my bitch tonight”

    • ShuutoHeat

      with that Kennedy said “hey CC, which hotel and room are you staying at?”

      Sabathia shivers.

      • JMK

        It’s playing in the major leagues-big.

        • ShuutoHeat

          lol

  • Salty Buggah

    wanted a K from Davis there dammnit

  • JSquared

    CC >

  • Danny

    CC for the CG?

    • JSquared

      Don’t have to make him pitch to his max every game.

      • JSquared

        Although it’s only 94… someone else could use work.

  • Salty Buggah

    Suzuki trying to help A-rod UZR

  • 27 this year

    94 through 8

  • JMK

    I feel the complete game. With Gaudin going tomorrow we might need every arm we can find. Start warming up soon, Swisher.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Tomorrow is going to be a real shit storm at the local shit farm with the shit throwers.

      But, I’m seriously wishing it would be a good start from Gaudin.

  • Dela G

    i love CC

  • baravelli

    Not to pile on Flaherty, but y’know what construction he overuses? “If you’re [x person]…”
    “That slip by CC might be scary, if you’re Dave Eiland…”
    “If you’re A-Rod, you should be looking for the fastball here…”
    “If you’re Damon, you’re happy about that base hit…”

    Idunno, it just seems remarkably inefficient to constantly set up conditional statements that apply to only one person in the world, and that person can’t hear you. Whenever I hear one, I think to myself, “oh, well, I’m not that person, so I don’t have to listen to the end of this sentence.”

    • Dela G

      he’s not good

      he actually makes me miss kay

    • Drew

      If you’re alex rodriguez you’re thinking fastball. If I’m CC I’m thinking attack the hitter. haha, yeah, he does say that shit a lot.

    • ShuutoHeat

      I think he has a mad libs book in front of him.

      • DreDog

        If you’re A-Rod, you might want some butter on that castle pitch.

        • ShuutoHeat

          SEE! DreDog gets the idea :P

        • baravelli

          Was ‘castle’ supposed to be an adjective?…

          • DreDog

            I failed at mad libs

            • JMK

              Eh, you could argue it in chess terms.

              • DreDog

                en passant?

    • JMK

      This could be the start of a Flash, Singleton drinking game to make up for the times we can’t hear Kay.

      Proud of fastball
      Grand slams with bases loaded
      Previously mentioned conditional statements with little audience application
      Inglorious Basterds
      Glory days of Orioles
      Glory days of Eddie Murphy (Charlie Murphy??!!)
      Flash hitting .252 for his career

      Can you guys think of any others?

      • baravelli

        I generally like Singleton, but the thing he does that bugs me is make a big deal out of miniscule, statistically meaningless hitting streaks. All the time, it’s “Melky now has a three game hitting streak, so maybe he’s ready to get going.”

    • Little Bill

      Awful. Hughes better not have to come into this game.

  • DreDog

    I kinda want Bruney out there. Am I crazy?

    • Dela G

      yes

    • Drew

      hell no. Bruney’s been good. It really doesn’t matter who comes out but it looks like it will be D-Rob.

      • 27 this year

        wait, CC ain’t going to pitch the 9th?

    • JSquared

      No, Bruney and Robertson will both get the 8th and 9th innings in games with 4+ run leads…

      • DreDog

        Who do you think gets the honors when Septemeber call ups in 5+ run games?

  • acb

    why not just let cc finish the game

    • Charlie

      oh please, don’t complain about that. There is nothing wrong with giving him an inning off. The guy has thrown a ton this year, and was way overworked last year. We need him to be ready and rested for October.

    • Danny

      to save some ZZ bullets for later

      • acb

        it just seems like he had a really smooth and easy night and 10-15 more pitches isnt gonna kill him.

        • Charlie

          true, but neither will not throwing 10-15 pitches

  • 27 this year

    Chances are CC finishes with just 105 or so pitches. For him, that is nothing and he probably won’t be starting on three days rest for the rest of the season.

    • Drew

      Welcome to the party, my name is Drew.

      • JMK

        Hi Drew!

  • JMK

    Three feet to the right on all those pitches and we’re good.

  • Drew

    Ugh, I thought D-Rob was over this bullshit. Come the fuck on.

    • Yankee1010

      Settle down. Do you hang out with Silva and Lombardi?

  • Danny

    lets go Robo!

    • Danny

      strikes please, i dont wanna see hughes.

  • Dela G

    that walk was unexpected there

    • Charlie

      Not

  • Dela G

    d-rob, work on the control mane

  • Dela G

    wow

    8 straight balls

    yuck

  • JMK

    8 consecutive balls? Did we just bring Brackman up?

  • Drew

    And people wonder why Joe was so slow to move him up the pecking order.

    • Yankee1010

      Really? Are you yearning for the days of Torre blowing through bullpen arms?

    • Yankee1010

      Are you settled the fuck down yet?

  • Charlie

    oh fuck, don’t bring MO in here

  • JMK

    Maybe he was playing hard to get?

  • Danny

    mo is like “are u freaking serious?” haha

  • Little Bill

    OH GOOD GOD! Mo doesn’t have to get up for Christ’s sake. It’s a 5 run lead.

    • Drew

      Mo is up in case a double turns this into a 3 run game.

      • sangreal

        Tying run on deck = save situation. Mo is up in-case there are any more baserunners at all

  • Dela G

    great K

  • Charlie

    i’d much rather have hughes warmup. he could use the work. and thank you drob for the strikes

  • acb

    ok so you take cc out of the game when he could have easily gone 9. now you bring robertson in and get hughes and rivera warmed up to save some “bullets” (10 pitches)but burn the pen. really girardi is just a bonehead sometimes.

    • Drew

      It’s not Joe’s fault that D-Rob throws 8 straight balls. If you can’t throw a strike you shouldn’t be on the team. Don’t go ragging on Joe for making what is probably the right move.

      • Yankee1010

        Yeah, D-Rob’s a problem. Holy shit. You’re that asshole in every class that needs his face rearranged by a fist.

        • handtius

          Relax fella. you’re coming off more like the very person you are explaining. And by the very mention of class shows me your a young and full of rage and stupidity.

          • Yankee1010

            I will grant you that I’m pissed off. But I can’t understand all of these know-it-alls who are pissed at D-Rob.

            And yeah, handtius, I’ve had my issues with you before. We don’t even need to go into that before.

            Are people really going crazy because of his performance tonight? That’s my point. People need to settle down.

            What is it that people want from the Yanks?

            • Drew

              Who went crazy? I merely said it’s not good to throw 8 straight balls.

              • ranger11

                This is some fun shit at 1:19 am. Let’s get it on!!!

                • Drew

                  ietcvm

                • DreDog

                  I am torn about it. I am entertained, but I do want everyone to get along.

        • Drew

          Easy big fella. I don’t know who’s in your “class,” but I assure you, it is not me.

      • acb

        im not saying it was a bad move to put drob in the game but it was a bad move to get hughes and mo warmed up after he walked the 2 with a 5 run lead.

        • Drew

          Gotta be ready though. If he throws 8 straight balls, he may throw 12 straight. Then, a single brings it to a 3 run game with 2 on. Just gotta be ready in case.

  • handtius

    The one thing about Joe G that erks me is his fear of going to anyone but Mo in the 9th when things get a little hairy. I think Robertson can get 3 outs before giving up 4 runs.

  • JMK

    I don’t hate on Girardi much, but he does that way too often. We’re up 5 runs and he gets Rivera warming up.

    • acb

      what pisses me off even more is he does dumb shit like this against bad teams but then in game against boston or tampa he wont use MO for 5 outs with a 1 run lead.

      • Drew

        be mad at D-rob, not Joe!

        • Yankee1010

          Drew, you’re nucking futs. You need a reality check.
          Or a punch to the face. Either/or. You pick.

          • Drew

            Easy now biff.

            • Yankee1010

              Sorry, McFly. Didn’t know you were the voice of reason. I’ll repeat. You need your orbital bones rearranged. Yeah, bringing in D-Rob with a 5 run lead is a problem.

              You’re a nightmare.

            • JMK

              Ex-wife or something, Drew?

              • Drew

                I don’t know man. Seems like it. I think someone got into mama’s liquor cabinet.

                • Yankee1010

                  Funny, Drew. Anytime. Anywhere. Baseball intellect. Or anything you want. You don’t have a chance. You know that full well.

                • Drew

                  Hey buddy, I don’t understand you’re angle here. You seem to have issues that root much deeper than my comments toward a pitcher and a manager. I hope you get that taken care of.

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

                  Knock it off everyone.

                • Yankee1010

                  Again, very funny. I don’t understand why you think you’re so knowledgeable about the game. God bless you if you think you know more than me. I mean that sincerely, because I would love to meet you.

                  In multiple threads, you always seem to think you think you know what you’re talking about. God bless you for believing in yourself. It’s pretty funny how you didn’t believe in D-Rob tonight.

                • Drew

                  ugh… You need to relax broski.

                • handtius

                  He never said he didn’t believe in him, he said it wasn’t good to throw 8 straight pitches out of the zone. You would say the same thing if Mo did it. It’s never good to walk 2 straight hitters.

                • DreDog

                  Can we all go back to hating the Red Sox?

    • DreDog

      Wrapped in a mystery

  • Salty Buggah

    where the hell did ball 1 to Everidge miss?

    • Drew

      Up a little bit.

      • Salty Buggah

        not on Gameday

        • Drew

          I didn;t have a problem with it. It was borderline.

  • ShuutoHeat

    I think he was trying to set up the triple play….

  • Dela G

    Great Comeback there D-rob!

    one more out!

  • Ivan

    Filth.

  • Esteban

    K-Rob. It’s either a K or BB everytime

    • Karl

      or a wild pitch

      • handtius

        or a fly-out.

    • DreDog

      That would make him K-RoBB. See what I did there?

  • Yankee1010

    Has everyone gotten off the ledge? Holy shit. You guys need some ludes.

    • JMK

      It’s strange how upset you get about some posters supposedly being worked up. One might even draw the conclusion that you’re far more irritated than anyone posting on here.

      • Drew

        I don’t know what he’s reading, but he seems to be enjoying it. More power to ’em.

        • Yankee1010

          Yeah, Drew. You seem to be firmly in Robertson’s corner. Wow. You’re a peach.

          • handtius

            Some young buck’s got a bone to pick with you Drew. Watch out. internet tough-guys are the worst and scariest.

            • JMK
              • Yankee1010

                The funny thing is, you wouldn’t dare try it in the real world.

                • Drew

                  You tried ending it in a civil manner. A+ for effort. :)

                • Salty Buggah

                  Im sure you wouldnt either. Usually those type of people bring out the internet tough-guy in them. Just saying.

                • DreDog

                  There are plenty of Red Sox fans on MLBTR that deserve this treatment. We all, at the least, want the Yanks to win.

                  Just let it go. There are some people on this board that annoy the crap out of me. I go out of my way to avoid them even they reply to one of my postings. It could be worse, they could be Red Sox fans.

        • JMK

          I suppose we all get a little tipsy at this hour for west coast games. Some handle it better than others.

          Why yes, I’ll have some more cheap whiskey. Thank you!

      • Yankee1010

        I just don’t understand how so many posters get so worked up about little things, ignoring the fact that the Yanks are the best team in the majors. It bugs the shit out of me that people can’t see the forest for the trees.

        • Drew

          I suppose you’re referring to me for defending Joe when he had to warm up Mo in case D-Rob blew up. I guess in your eyes, defending the manager is not seeing the big picture.

        • JMK

          A lot of folks get caught up with the emotions of the game. Winning big or not, I think most people shout at their TV if something negative happens. Now they’re simply expressing it on a message board. I can see how it would be irritating for you, and yes, some focus far too much on miniscule things. The Yankees may be doing very well, but this doesn’t mean people can’t get heated up about things.

          With that said, your approach toward other commenters will, if anything, drive people to spite you, at worst. At best, they’ll ignore you and continue to complain about whatever.

          So there isn’t much value in maintaining the same combative nature, unless you simply prefer to complain about something yourself — in this case people, not baseball.

          • Yankee1010

            I guess I missed the part where “Drew” has been reasonable. God bless what you’re drinking or smoking.

            • handtius

              yes you did. It’s that simple. you missed it.

                We’ll end it here – I’ve never once (in this thread or otherwise) have ever found myself agreeing with Drew or handtius. We can just end it here. I’ll try to end it civilly.

                I will give it this shot.

                • handtius

                  Honestly, I can’t remember ever disagreeing with you on anything. I am now disagreeing with the way you are treating another poster. Saying that some deserves to be physically harmed for their opinion is just not right or constructive towards conversation.

                • Drew

                  To be honest, I don’t remember disagreeing with Yank101 in previous posts either.

                • JMK

                  It’s fine to disagree with people. Hell, I’ve disagreed with handtius on a few points, but, as he mentioned, personal attacks and ad hominem arguments do little to help. A little civility isn’t an unreasonable expectation.

                • Yankee1010

                  Fair enough.

                  I only know that you and Drew are the only ones I’ve ever had such a disagreement with. And it has happened. And honestly, I really don’t care that much about it. I would prefer to just drop it.

                  I’ve made my point with regards to the “other poster.”

                  It was more a culmination of other posts than a 100% reaction to tonight’s post. But tonight’s post reflected a way of thinking that is tiresome.

                • Drew

                  If you read my comment, in the context of the game you may understand where I was coming from. My first was, I thought D-Rob was over this BS. That was after he threw his 6th straight ball I believe. I said this because seeing him in recent outings, his walk rate improved mightily. I honestly thought he was done with what seemed to be rookie jitters and trying to nibble/avoid the middle of the plate.

                  Then, all I was doing was defending Joe when he got Phil, then Mo up. If D-Rob walked the third straight batter, then gave up a hit, we would need Mo in the game, IMO. I’m not sure where the haste came from. If you don’t agree with me on other issues, I generally am willing to explain why my opinion is what it is. If we don’t agree, I usually proclaim that there is nothing wrong with disagreeing.
                  There is no need to attack anyone on RAB.

              • Yankee1010

                As I’ve said, I’m over it. I’ve disagreed with a few posters on here (mostly handtius, Drew and vehemently with somebody who wanted Peavy on the Yanks). It might be that I disagreed with you guys on Peavy or having short-term views, but I’ve also had serious disagreements with Silva and Lombardi, who are completely nonsensical. I don’t necessarily mean to lump you with in those guys.

                The reason I come to RAB is that mostly, people take the long-term view. I’m just sick of people treating every out of every game like the last out of Game 7 of the WS. I appreciate that the Yanks fans are passionate. Trust me, I’m passionate as hell, but I just wish that people would settle down.

                • Salty Buggah

                  Besides the occasional Bo/Lanny/Giacomo, no one is like that for the most part at RAB though.

                • JMK

                  I totally understand where you’re coming from. Hopefully everyone has calmed down (myself included) and we can let bye-byes be bye-byes (it’s a Ricky Henderson quote…seriously). No reason a tiny thing should create such a stir.

                  I wish you a pleasant evening, good sir.

                • handtius

                  I never wanted Peavy near this club and I’m generally a long-term out-look person. So, I don’t know what we have disagreed on because i tend to take the slow and steady wins the race, we can lose a game here and there or even, gasp, 2 in a row, approach when people are clamoring when we lose 2 straight.

                  I honestly can not remember ever arguing with you except when you bash other posters. I am vehemently against person attacks on people. Look at my any posts in any thread and you will find me defending someone because another decides it is their place to take them down a notch, because they are so righteous. Fun little pokes are ok. we all do it. It’s not meant to be abrasive, but outright hatred and threats of violence are barbaric.

            • JMK

              None of my points even mentioned how reasonable Drew is, but hey, it’s clearly a sore spot for you. While I don’t agree with everything he says, I haven’t found him to be unreasonable.

              I’m drinking whiskey, and yes, it deserves much praise.

  • Dela G

    BALLGAME!!

    YANKEES WIN!

  • Esteban

    Huzzah!

    David Robertson >

  • JMK

    Good game, guys! It’s nice to get a win after those two painful loses.

  • Drew

    Ha, D-rob and JoPo havin a little fun. I love it.

  • Nikhil R.

    Wasn’t Robertson at high 80s/low 90s with his FB earlier in the year? Now his FB is sitting 93-94. What gives?

    • zs190

      allegedly worked with Eiland mid-season after a bad game and figured something out(mechanics wise) that brought his velocity up a notch.

      • JMK

        Nice. Eiland gets a lot of shit, so it’s good to hear about something like that.

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

    Yeah, baby! Good job by CC after the two solo shots. Also glad they took enough advantage (and got enough balls to drop)of the icky play by the A’s.

  • handtius

    Did anyone notice that Mo gets a pass on the whole “clean shaven” rule? love it.

    • JMK

      Yeah, it’s a 3 o’clock shadow. He could probably grow a Castro-beard if he wanted and they wouldn’t say much.

      • Dela G

        +42

      • handtius

        agreed.

  • Salty Buggah

    WIN!

  • Danny

    woohoo!

  • Salty Buggah

    Mo didnt really warm-up so everything is OK, he was mostly soft-tossing. No one complain about that please.

    • DreDog

      SOFT TOSSING? Who showed him how to warm up, Cone?
      Next thing they’ll be giving Portuguese Breakfasts to people out there.

  • ShuutoHeat

    That was a “fun” win, I’m glad tomorrow is the gonna be the last time they’ll be playing in this dump for the rest of the regular season and (insert chuckle) possibly the post season.

    • JMK

      Is there a worse ballpark in the MLB?

      • ShuutoHeat

        I don’t know about you guys, but this one bothers me the most. It’s just depressing to look at it and it pisses me off when I watch the Yanks play here, regardless of how they play.

        Hands down the worst ballpark, IMO.

        • JMK

          Totally agree, SH. Having seen the lovely park in San Francisco, it must be embarrassing to even be aware that that dump in Oakland still exists. I really hope they get a new park sometime soon.

      • Yankee1010

        To watch a game? No way. It’s the worst.

  • Drew

    CC just goes out every day and kills it.

    With the pen well rested, I’m hoping Gaudin gives us a solid 5 and we score some runs.

  • Charlie

    it seems like the rangers overpaid for pudge, no? They’re giving up 2-3 minor leaguers ( i don’t know how good of prospects they are) for a guy who had to beg to get a job at the start of the season.

    • Drew

      I think they said that they are mid-tier prospects. Hey, I suppose if Pudge helps em get to the playoffs it will all be worth it.

      • Salty Buggah

        it’s funny how they had too many catchers last year in Ramirez, Salty, and Laird…now they had to trade for one mediocre one. See how quickly depth goes? I dont why some complain we sign too many catching prospects. At one point this season. Montero, Romine, Cervi, and another 1 I cant remember were all down.

        • Dela G

          the thing is that all of their catchers can’t hit worth a damn. So trading for another catcher who can’t hit a damn makes even more sense for texas….

      • Dela G

        the problem is that pudge sucks this year

        • Drew

          Dang just looked at his stats, he’s been brutal this year. Maybe a Texas reunion will help his cause. At least he’s a vet, maybe he can help the youngens they have behind the dish. Especially when they have the September call ups.
