Jorge Posada and A-Rod injury updates
  • Dela G

    haha its all good now my man

    its all fuckin good

  • LivefromNewYork

    Girardi’s an idiot.

    /RAB’d

    • Steve H

      Girardi is good. His decision last night was terrible.

      • Bugsy

        you have to admit that his decision to bunt with melky was a little smug.

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

        This.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Agreed.

      • LivefromNewYork

        It was a joke.

        • Steve H

          I figured it was. But Negative Nancy Lanny is out lurking tonight, so you never know.

          • Lanny

            Please tell us when giving up an out when a pitcher is on the ropes is a good?

            I’m dying to hear it

            • Steve H

              Melky is ops’ing .569 in his last 28 days, and a stellar .494 in his last 14. I don’t care if the ball is on a tee, Melky should be bunting there. Set up 2nd and 3rd with one out, Jeter coming up and a 4-2 lead with Hughes/Mo in the pen.

            • steve (different one)

              Please tell us when giving up an out when a pitcher is on the ropes is a good?

              you mean the pitcher who was facing his first batter?

              try again.

            • Chris

              If the pitcher can’t get anyone out, then why does it matter if you give up an out?

  • Chris B

    Why can’t they let Hughes pitch to build up his innings?

    • Dela G

      because he might be needed with nippert vs burnett tomorrow

    • Drew

      Rather have him if we have a close game tomorrow.

      • Chris B

        They had that thinking all month which is why he’s only pitched about 7 innings this month.

        • Chris B

          Actually 8 innings.

        • steve (different one)

          guys, if you ride hughes as hard as you can, how many additional innings are you going to get? 5-10?

          it’s meaningless.

          ONE inning here or there means nothing.

          by not pitching tonight here is the effect it has on his development: NONE.

      • Tom Zig

        What? You mean he can’t pitch 2 days in a row?

        • Drew

          No, I don’t want him to pitch in about 16 hours.

    • Chris

      They could, but it won’t change his innings limit next year. He would have needed to make 25+ starts to increase his innings limit for next year. After about July 1 he had missed enough starts that it wouldn’t make a difference on innings for next year, even if he went back to the rotation for the rest of the year.

  • Bugsy

    i fucking hate the phillies bullpen. stop blowing my wins!!!!

    • Dela G

      unbelievable how their record is so good with that shitty back end of the bullpen they have

      • JobaWockeeZ

        And that shitty rotation minus Cliff Lee.

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Oh and JA Happ too.

          • Dela G

            incredible how that works, eh?

            • JobaWockeeZ

              Yeah I know. But you know it is the NL…

    • Steve H

      Me too. Not happy. Down 3-1 in wins this week in a H2H league. Kinda needed that…..

  • Salty Buggah

    why not take A-rod out and put Hinske in?

    • Steve H

      A-Rod is way too gritty to be taken out for that. Just imagine if he had a beard and pinetar on his helmet.

    • Dela G

      because the game isnt over

    • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

      NOW kid…

  • Coach6423

    Just because he is pitching an inning, doesnt mean he is actually building his innings…

    • Chris B

      So if he pitched an inning tonight it would add to his total? Not sure I follow that.

  • JMK

    Can we pull an LT move and send booze, drugs and hookers to Hamilton’s room to tire him out for tomorrow’s game?

    Too soon?

    • Tom Zig

      This isn’t Blitz: The League.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Just spike their G.

  • LivefromNewYork

    Eiland says stop fucking around.

  • Dela G

    good god bruney, throw fucking strikes

  • JMK

    Oh, is this Bruney fucking up? Color me surprised.

    • pat

      An infield single and a bloop to right center, hardly fucking up.

      • JMK

        I meant the walks.

  • zs190

    Good thing this one is mostly over, but it sure is painful to watch Bruney pitch.

  • Steve H

    ehhhh. Wonder if Hughes is going to get in after all.

  • Tom Zig

    Velocity is there, command, not so much

  • zs190

    Oh no…

    • zs190

      Hopefully it’s just a bruised hand

  • pat

    Fackin FAAAAACK

  • Bugsy

    awwww shit.

  • Tom Zig

    injury delay?

    • Dela G

      posada injured on foul ball off glove

      molina brought in

    • zs190

      Foul ball bounced up and hit Jorge’s hand and he winced. Joe came out and took him out pretty quickly, no reason to risk it in this kind of game. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.

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

    Sonofa…

  • Drew

    Please Mo don’t be broken.

  • Dela G

    hey a molina sighting!

  • LivefromNewYork

    This would be bad.

    And Bruney sucks.

  • JMK

    If Jorge is injured, I blame you Brian Bruney.

  • Manimal

    Pinky? That thumb again? Not sure what happened there…

  • Yankee1010

    That isn’t good.

    I thought that people would have realized how important Jorge is after he missed most of last year. Apparently, that didn’t sink in with everyone. Hopefully, the baseball Gods aren’t going to hammer home the point this year.

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

      Who didn’t that sink in with?

      • Yankee1010

        A lot of people. And even check out below.

  • Tom Zig

    What happened? I’m only on GameDay

  • e mills

    ruh-roh

  • Salty Buggah

    hope Jorge’s OK too

  • Little Bill

    If Jorge is injured, all of you who bash him for no reason will get your wish- Jose Molina will be catching > 50% of the games. Be careful what you wish for.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Why? His defense is good and while is bat is not, the lineup can easily carry him. This isn’t 2008.

      • whozat

        because the lineup is already carrying Melky. And that’s when no one has a day off.

      • Yankee1010

        I thought we learned this lesson last year. It’s not the brightest thing to think that a lineup can carry automatic outs. Especially in the AL. Plus, Molina has also proven that he can’t stay healthy for an extended period of time if he’s the de facto starter.

        Jorge is incredibly valuable to the Yanks. Can we please stop pretending like it wouldn’t be a big loss if he was gone for a long period of time?

    • Yankee1010

      You would think that last year would have proven how valuable Jorge is.

  • Bobtaco

    Pinky?

  • Kara

    I’m going with Jorge’d still be in this game if it were 2-1 but because it’s 9-2 they’re taking him out.

    • pat

      Word, better safe than screwed.

  • Tom Zig

    Damn it Posada, KEEP THAT HAND BEHIND YOUR BACK

    • Drew

      It hit his glove.

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

      It was the glove hand that time.

      • Tom Zig

        ohhh, my bad, i just assumed. Im not in front of a TV. Point still stands though

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

          True that.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    Posada’s hurt, and it’s Bruneys fault.

  • LivefromNewYork

    It looked off the tips of the finger which probably hurts like a bitch.

  • Lanny

    Bruney is quickly earning his way off any post season roster consideration.

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

      Have you had a positive comment all year? I mean, seriously, do you really even like the Yankees?

      • Salty Buggah

        and we’re winning in a blowout today too!

      • Drew

        I think we all know the answer to that by now..

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Lanny had one. I’m paraphrasing but it went along the liens of “The Yankees are good. We know that. So we have a right to complain if they don’t perform.”

        • Steve H

          The old left-handed compliment.

    • JMK

      Maybe it’s the beer in me, but you might be right. No, wait — I’d bet money you’re wrong. I figured the law of probability would mean at some point you might be right and this a good time, but I can’t stomach that.

      Although I wouldn’t mind not seeing Bruney for a bit.

    • Riddering

      Admit it: you want a bad Bruney for the postseason.

  • Steve H

    At least Bruney will now pitch well, without Posada calling pitches.

    /Burnett’d

  • Chris B

    This was all planned so Girardi can have Molina catch tomorrow without any questions. haha

    • chriskeo

      well there wont be any questions now, except about jorge’s health

  • Zack

    does bruney have any options left?

  • LivefromNewYork

    Brian Bruney is no Andy Pettitte.

  • Bobtaco

    Bruney doing his best Frank Francisco imitation…

    • Bobtaco

      but recovers nicely ;-)

  • e mills

    look Bruney got the DP b/c of Molina

  • pat

    ROUND THE HIZZY BABY

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

    Bruney was just doing what Andy did in the first, guys.

  • Salty Buggah

    Again, this is the Pudglet we remember

  • Dela G

    DOUBLE PLAY!

  • Riddering

    There’s the Pudge I remember!

  • Drew

    Pudge has made 3 outs in the same exact spot. The 4th out was a K. Everything else was a rip to Al.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Bruney is one lucky ass bitch.

  • Zack

    thanks for your help ivan

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

    /Waits for Lanny to say that Bruney got lucky…

    • Steve H

      Hold your breath, it won’t be long.

      And speaking of how much the Yankees and this game suck. Doesn’t the grass look a little too long? And the lights are a little too bright tonight? And are the seats painted the right color? And are the foul lines as straight as possible?

      • Tom Zig

        The concession lines are too long

        • Steve H

          The urinals are too damn tall.

          • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

            I could only fiNd one ATM, it was behind home and my seats were in right…

    • Zack

      well he did? pudge hit into a DP on a pitch that was way inside against a guy who cant find the zone. if that was a Yankee we’d kill him and say he let the pitcher off the hook and he got lucky

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

        I know, I know. It’s just predictable from him.

        • Zack

          True

      • JMK

        And we’d be justified, too.

      • http://eemack.blogspot.com Jackson

        I think Bruney was actually rather unlucky that inning. An infield single, a broken bat flare to right. He wouldn’t have needed a double play if either of those turned into outs.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    Posada hopefully is ok.

  • Manimal

    fuck papi

    • chriskeo

      oh no, what happened

      • Zack

        walk off hr

      • Steve H

        He juiced one.

      • Steve H

        He juiced one. And the fraud will probably say he did it for Ted Kennedy.

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

          He juiced one

          OICWUDT

        • Johan Iz My Brohan

          He probably doesn’t know who Ted Kennedy is to be honest.

  • JMK

    Did he just walk Molina? Really?

  • LivefromNewYork

    Walking JoMo

    Hilarious

  • Tom Zig

    Ugh Boston just won

  • Bugsy

    ortiz just hit a walkoff HR

  • JobaWockeeZ

    What is that? Papi’s first multi HR game this year?

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    I hate Ortiz soo much, fucking walkoff homerun… everytime I see his picture on gameday I want to punch my computer.

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

    Nice slide, Jose…

  • chriskeo

    cano, you could hustle next time, maybe he needs to be benched again

  • Dela G

    cano = mr double play

  • LivefromNewYork

    Hairy in da house

  • Riddering

    Hairston’s been talking to Swisher.

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

    33 pitches for Hairston tonight.

    /Swisher’d

    • Steve H

      And a dinger. Time for a Hairston fanclub?

  • Zack

    how do the Mets score 3 runs off of Josh Johnson?

    • Bugsy

      with the powers of babip

  • Tom Zig

    Jerry Hairston has seen 34 pitches today

    • steve (different one)

      Cashman can’t build a bench!

  • JMK

    Same exact pitch that was called a ball is now a strike. I’m not necessarily complaining, but the strike zone has been a bit odd tonight. Not Joe West odd, but still a bit strange.

  • chriskeo

    hey i just checked my fantasy team, what happened in the phillies game, hamels had a 8 inning shut out and i see its 4-1 top 10

    • Zack

      They sent in Madson, instead of Lidge, to close and he gave up a HR

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

      Madson blew it in the ninth.

  • JMK

    Just for kicks, I’d love to see Andrew Brackman called up.

    • Tom Zig

      Yeah he can pitch the 9th inning of Game 162.

    • Accent Shallow

      He’d walk the bases loaded, then proceed to strike out the side. Of course, all three runs would score, due to all the wild pitches he’d throw in the process.

  • Bugsy

    time to bring down the hammer. Bring in Mo to pitch the most important inning and outs of the game and snuff any and all rallies.

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

    *whif*

    /the real Chris Davis’d

  • JMK

    How many strikeouts would Chris Davis have hitting in the Little League World Series?

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

      It’s a closer mound. He wouldn’t stand a chance.

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

        Well, most people wouldn’t considering how wide some of the strikezones the umpires call are.

  • Tom Zig

    Jerry Hariston – 34
    Nick Swisher – 15

  • Riddering

    Et tu Cone?

  • steve (different one)

    this is great from Abraham’s fill-in:

    Of course, Rodriguez was promptly thrown out at home on a terrific play by Elvis Andrus. A-Rod saw Andrus field the ball on the slide. Why not turn around and go back to third?

    …uhh, b/c the 3B coach was halfway between 3B and home waving him in?

    • Drew

      The hate he gets from asses like Abraham and his goons is almost, just almost, unbelievable.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Pete is a good reporter but that the bias he shows is incredible.

        But he’s a Sox fan so meh…

        • Tom Zig

          No way is he a sox fan.

          • Drew

            They were his favorite team growing up.

        • Accent Shallow

          Ehhh, I really doubt he allows any past fandom to color his reporting.

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

            Agreed.
