Game 129: The quest for .500

By

But Mike, the Yankees are 32 games over .500 and haven’t been under .500 since May 13th!

Well, yeah, but a win today would be the club’s 81st win of the season, guaranteeing them a .500 record or better for the 14th consecutive season. Without looking it up, I think it’s safe to say that’s the longest active streak in the majors. The Yanks were the first team in baseball to reach the 80 win plateau this year thanks to their win last night; the two LA clubs are both sitting on 76 wins. If things go right, the Yanks could surpass their 2008 win total of 89 in about two weeks.

On to the injury news. Jorge Posada is getting another day off to rest his bruised ring finger, so Jose Molina’s behind the plate again. If worse comes to worst, Jerry Hairston Jr. is the emergency catcher. September callups are just three games away, so hopefully Molina can hold down the fort until Frankie Cervelli comes back. No point in risking a more severe injury to Posada when the team has a six game lead with 34 games to go.

As for Brett Gardner, he experienced “a little soreness or pain” while hitting off a tee, and Mark Feinsand says it’s unlikely he’ll get into a rehab game before the minor league season ends on Sept. 8th. It’s a shame, because Melky has been teh suck lately.

Here’s the lineup that will face our old buddy Jose Contreras this afternoon:

Jeter, SS
Damon, LF
Teixeira, 1B
A-Rod, 3B
Matsui, DH
Swisher, RF
Cano, 2B
Hairston, CF
Molina, C

And on the mound, Sergio Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitre.

The weather’s ugly but it’s not raining, so it looks like they’ll get this one in. If you’re going out to the Stadium, I feel bad for you. That pitching matchup is as bad as it gets.

  1. Well, if you’re me and you like home runs, that pitching matchup is fucking gold.

  2. 27 this year says:

    If the Yankees go on a 34 game win streak to end the season, they will match 1998′s record. Goes to show how good that team was. I think the game has changed from that time. It takes more offense and power both offensively and pitching to be really good. I don’t think we will see a team win 110+ games for a while with the emphasis on younger players because those players lead to struggles which is part of their development.

  3. Robbie Cano 1231 says:

    robbie gave us a huge lift last night.. i hope that shot was the start of those streaks he’s been having this year!!

    • 27 this year says:

      this year has been a hot streak for Cano. He is batting like .315 and he has been pretty consistent, fewer peaks and troughs and more consistency this year.

  4. Dela G says:

    Mitre, i have faith in you today

    LETS GO YANKEES!

    • 27 this year says:

      I think Mitre might benefit from the weather. Wet grass slows the ball down so maybe fewer ground ball hits.

      • Dela G says:

        yeah but in chicago on wet grass he slipped while fielding the ball, causing an error and a chi-sox win. I am hoping he took some PFP (pitcher’s fielding practice) since then. :D

  5. Jose says:

    14 consecutive seasons over .500 is awesome. Look at the Pittsburgh Pirates, they are in their 17th consecutive season under .500

  6. Manimal says:

    Latest Elias Rankings shows that Hinske, Hairston, Nady and Matsui are all type B’s and Damon is a Type A. Who do you think we let leave, who do you think we resign and who do you think we offer arbitration?

    • Dela G says:

      matsui will be gone, hinske might go, and everyone else will prolly come back

    • Robbie Cano 1231 says:

      I expect Damon back, Hairston back, and Nady and the rest all gone.. idk about ARB..

    • Tom Zig says:

      Bring them all back.

    • 27 this year says:

      You wouldn’t offer arb to Damon or Matsui because they would accept and you would be stuck with a $15 million dollar contract which is way over market. Nady is someone you would consider because $8 million isn’t too much for him but with the Yankees looking to cut costs, they might be cautious. Hinske and Hairston are people you probably would offer arb as they are good bench options and they will only accept if they are ok with being on the bench which they probably will look elsewhere and thus we can pick up the picks.

  7. Tom Zig says:

    I’m calling it, today will be a pitcher’s duel.

  8. Jake H says:

    stupid MLD extra innings not giving me the game on it. I got to watch it on WGN.

  9. Robbie Cano 1231 says:

    Nady gone also just to clarify.

  10. Dela G says:

    man i wish they would bring paulie back

    i love paul & cone together with some singleton added in

    • Robbie Cano 1231 says:

      +1

    • Yankee1010 says:

      They’re probably trying to tighten the food budget.

    • whozat says:

      He only agrees to to about 20 games a year or so. It’s no that they “won’t bring him back” it’s that he doesn’t need the work and just comes in to do the games he wants to do, or aren’t that far from his home.

  11. Free Mike Vick says:

    Sergio Suuuuuucktre

  12. Salty Buggah says:

    Just woke up 30 mins ago and my first task is watching the Yanks game. Life’s good.

  13. Salty Buggah says:

    Mitre didn’t slip!

  14. Jake H says:

    Low the ball to strike ratio so far.

  15. Dela G says:

    now lets get the 3rd out please?

  16. VO says:

    Perfect game.

  17. Salty Buggah says:

    Great inning Surge

  18. Dela G says:

    HOLY COW A 1-2-3 INNING!!!!1111!!!

  19. No Halladay says:

    WOW, 3 up 3 down, is that the first time he’s ever done that int he first inning?

  20. Riddering says:

    I love getting the third out right after the second out.

  21. Patrick says:

    Odds of Guillen asking Contreras to bean either Cano?

  22. Dela G says:

    Jeterian

  23. Salty Buggah says:

    Nice start Jete

  24. Mike Axisa says:

    Heh, the “experiment” of leading Jeter off.

  25. No Halladay says:

    Jeter or Tex MVP? Or does the team have an MVP, is this more like the WS teams that had no MVP candidate just solid up and down.

  26. No Halladay says:

    Possible to have the entire infield with 20 homers

  27. Salty Buggah says:

    HAHA! thanks Nix

  28. Dela G says:

    yay for errors!

  29. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    This reminds of Contreras’ game against the Sox, let the errors begin!

  30. No Halladay says:

    He was safe on the glove issue, the only question is did he pick the ball up and have his foot ont he bag begore Jete was in, that was close.

  31. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    It’s like the yanks got 2 extra outs there.

  32. Jake H says:

    whitesox announces saying that the 2nd base ump always has a problem with the white sox.

  33. Riddering says:

    Jeter decides when he’s safe or not, Nix.

  34. No Halladay says:

    Should have bunted

  35. Salty Buggah says:

    cmon A-rod, no DP…drive in a run or 3

  36. Dela G says:

    wow when did tex stop seeing fastballs?

  37. Jake H says:

    I got the stupid be gone guy. Man I hate not watching these games on YES.

  38. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Is it me or does Matsui never get a clutch hit?

    (Using RAB reverse curse)

  39. Dela G says:

    contreras still has the wicked movement on his pitches. Lets hope they move to the head of the bat of the yanks

  40. Salty Buggah says:

    ah cmon guys, cmon Hideki

  41. Drew says:

    Matsui was limping a bit yesterday. Let’s see how he looks today.

  42. No Halladay says:

    If anything that was good inning for the pitch count

  43. Salty Buggah says:

    Ah damn, 0-3 with RISP already! Oh well, we burned 23 pitches

  44. Dela G says:

    damn

    im shocked 3-4-5 produced no runs

    oh well, we’ll get em next inning

  45. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    darn.

  46. Riddering says:

    0-3 with RISP.

    The drama continues.

  47. No Halladay says:

    8 inning game now.

  48. whozat says:

    Vaccination Day == worst promo ever

  49. No Halladay says:

    4 up 4 down

  50. No Halladay says:

    Close for Thome, bu 5 up 5 down

  51. Accent Shallow says:

    Not a fan of Contreras, especially how the Yankees gave up on him and he promptly was a big reason of why the Sox won in ’05.

  52. whozat says:

    hey, Sox helping Mitre out.

  53. pete says:

    four outs in a row for mitre…what is the world coming to?

  54. Quikksand says:

    Mitre isn’t looking half-bad

  55. whozat says:

    oh, that looked good.

  56. Dela G says:

    aight mitre

    one more

  57. No Halladay says:

    6 up 6 down for Mitre, 21 more outs to the perfect game.

  58. Salty Buggah says:

    Mitre!

  59. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Teh No-Hittaz!!!11!

  60. Dela G says:

    MITRE WAS MURDA!

  61. VO says:

    Perfect through 2.

    • scooter says:

      Better offspeed stuff from Sergio today so far. Looks like he’s hitting the glove consistently too

      Will be interesting to watch Contreras as the game wears on. The stat Kay cited is interesting – 1.98 ERA in innings 1 & 2; almost 7 after that.

      His FB velocity was pretty inconsistent in the first – and his inconsistency is what drove Mel and Joe Torre wild

  62. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Huh it might not be a slugfest at all.

  63. JMK says:

    I’m pleasantly surprised with Mitre’s performance thus far.

  64. Salty Buggah says:

    Mike, is the lefty prospect the Rays got any good? He has like a mid 2 ERA and like 149 K’s in 147 innings.

  65. Dela G says:

    there you go swish!

  66. Salty Buggah says:

    Gimme another dinger Robbie

  67. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Is the Kazmir deal really that bad for the Rays? They have guys they can plug in, and get out underneath Kazmirs salary. Seems like a good deal to me.

  68. JMK says:

    Scott Kazmir hasn’t been the pitcher he was a few years ago and the Rays have pitchers they can toss into his spot. With tons of guys needing to be resigned on a tight budget, these are things that a team like that has to do. Sure, it’s a dump, but it doesn’t indicate they are throwing in the towel. Dumb question.

    • No Halladay says:

      I disagree, not a dumb question at all, Kazmir is coming off some injury issues, but I don’t think that you can concluded that he isn’t what he once was. He’s pitched well in his last couple starts and the Angels will use him well (probably against us in the ALCS). It’s a salary dump and it indicates they are looking towards next year and beyond. Otherwise they would not trade a quality starter for a prospect or two.

      • Zack says:

        ‘but I don’t think that you can concluded that he isn’t what he once was’

        decreasing velocity and KRate say otherwise

      • JMK says:

        The question was: Are they throwing in the towel with this trade? The Rays have lots of pitching options, get back a solid prospect, and save money to pay for guys that have been very valuable to their team. Yes, we agree it’s a dump, and Kazmir has been coming off injury issues (since 2006, basically), and this helps more long-term, but it doesn’t indicate they’re giving up on this year.

  69. No Halladay says:

    Nice bunt cano

  70. Dela G says:

    cano!

    great job robbie

  71. Sam says:

    BABIP correction!

  72. Salty Buggah says:

    That works too! Cmon Jerry!

  73. pete says:

    see, molina’s catching and mitre’s tossing a no-hitter. coincidence? i think not

  74. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Cano with a double!!!

  75. VO says:

    Why isn’t he bunting?

  76. Dela G says:

    good AB by hairston

  77. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Jerry!!

  78. VO says:

    THATS HAIRY FOR YA!

  79. Jordan says:

    I have a man crush on Jerry Hairston Jr.

  80. Dela G says:

    HAIRSTON with the HUGE DOUBLE!!!

    2-0!

  81. Salty Buggah says:

    JERRY! JERRY! JERRY!

    Seriously, I love this dude

  82. E-ROC says:

    Hairston is awesome.

  83. JMK says:

    Hairy Ballsagna!

  84. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Yay runs!

  85. Mike Axisa says:

    I’ve been very impressed with the quality of the at-bats Mr. Hairston has put together since the trade.

  86. Riddering says:

    Jerry “Postseason is Mine” Hairston!

  87. Zack says:

    but Cash cant build a bench!

  88. No Halladay says:

    JH can play, he’s always a good fantasy pickup because he can play any position, hit for a good average, and produce. An awesome bench player.

  89. The White Sox announcers are joking about Arron Boone getting back from open heart surgery faster than Jose Reyes for his hamstring injury.

  90. Mike Axisa says:

    Why isn’t Molina bunting???

  91. No Halladay says:

    JH= Luis Sojo, only better

  92. Dela G says:

    nice job molina

  93. MikeD says:

    Do we have Hairston through at least next season, or is he a free agent? I hope we keep him. It’s nice to have a Hairston coming off the bench who contributes, as opposed to players like Cairo.

  94. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Did Jose Molina just walk?

  95. Jordan says:

    Situational grit.

  96. David A says:

    Jeter bunts? What is with this small ball?

  97. VO says:

    Why the hell is he bunting?

  98. Salty Buggah says:

    Why did Jeter bunt and give up an out?

  99. No Halladay says:

    Good baseball there, people with bitch, but good baseball.

    • Dela G says:

      i completely agree

    • Observer283 says:

      Sigh. It is not. he just walked Jose Molina. JOSE MOLINA. He had thrown 42 pitches. Trust me, the number one thing he wanted there is an out. ESPECIALLY when he is facing someone who has been hitting .400 or so over the last three weeks.

    • Yankee1010 says:

      It’s the 2nd inning, Conterars was on the ropes, Jeter is up batting about .330 and Mitre is pitching. It’s not the time to play for a run or two.

  100. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Teh bunt!

  101. Dela G says:

    great bunt there

  102. Riddering says:

    All y’all who get to be around when Jeter’s nearing 3000 hits will be lucky bastards.

  103. Mike Axisa says:

    Now they’re just bunting out of spite.

  104. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Is Jose Contreras the grandfather of Aroldis Chapman?

  105. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Maybe Jeter felt a DP coming on? Always thinking, Captain

  106. E-ROC says:

    I’ve to grips with Jeter bunting when I don’t think he should.

    Go Damon!

  107. I love it when they face Contreras…

  108. Salty Buggah says:

    Damon!

  109. No Halladay says:

    Why the hell did he bunt? Your answer children, your answer.

    • Yankee1010 says:

      So Damon wouldn’t have done that if Jeter didn’t bunt? It’s impossible that Jeter, one of the hottest hitters in the league, would have gotten a hit off a guy who is always ready to completely blow up?

      Faulty logic here.

  110. Dela G says:

    teh bunt worked!

    4-0 thanks to damon

    • Why give up a free out with the have been hitting Contreras? Jeter is hitting over .330. Already a runner in scoring position. Why not to go for the jugular and have a huge inning?

      • Sorry! Wrong reply.

      • No Halladay says:

        They went for the jug after the bunt and scored only 2 runs, so your argument makes no sense. You stay out of the DP, advance two runnders into scoring position instead of one, and increase the chances that you score. IT”S NOT THE NFL

        • Yankee1010 says:

          Bunting in the position is not at all going for the jugular. And by bunting there, you’re decreasing the probability of more runs because you’re giving away a free out.

          It’s clear that you’re going continue believing what you want, so I’m not going to go into it any more.

          Also, Walter Johnson isn’t on the mound for the Yanks. I wouldn’t exactly be saying that 4-0 is the end of it.

        • He is more likely to get a hit, then to ground into a double play. But no, give up an out with your .330 hitter with our middle of the line up coming up. So why not try to knock him out earlier? I’m not saying it didn’t work, but the inning could have and should have been bigger.

  111. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Well gotta admit the bunt helped. Great job Damon.

    • Observer283 says:

      We actually don’t know that the bunt helped. What if Jeter had hit a homerun? Or gotten a hit? Whether one should bunt when trailing by one run in the 9th is a debatable question (see threads from a couple of days ago).

      But in the second inning against a struggling pitcher with a .330 hitter who is even hotter than the women he has been known to date…it is unquestionably the wrong move.

  112. Jordan says:

    Ugh, damn that bunt!

  113. Riddering says:

    (Jeter bunted because he felt a GIDP inside him and didn’t want to do that.)

  114. MikeD says:

    Maybe Jeter would have hit into a double-play. Instead, he bunts, and Damon drives in two. 4-0 Yankees.

    • JMK says:

      He also could have hit a home run. He also could have dropped trow and taken a dump on home plate. It’s impossible to know.

      /That’s baseball.

      • MikeD says:

        Dropped trow? I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t happen, but it would be interesting to see how that was handled on Baseball Tonight, or in Jeter’s Yankeeography.

    • He is more likely to get a base hit, then to ground into a double play.

    • MikeD says:

      …although I should add to my own post, I’m not a fan of the bunt, and agree with Michael Kay in this case. We’re up 2-0 already, it’s only the second inning, Jeter is hot, I’d have let him swing away. Can’t complain, though, with the results this time.

  115. Dela G says:

    aight a-rod, lets go

    • scooter says:

      Not a hit – but Teixeira and ARod both hit it on the screws

      Jose’s body language reminded me of 2003. Looks like he got sinkers up in the zone, and they were smoked.

  116. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Sacrifices win MVP’s!!!!

  117. Tony says:

    Molina being incredibly slow contributed to that bunt

  118. Salty Buggah says:

    bad luck for Texy

  119. Dela G says:

    damn, beckham was in the perfect spot

    great inning! more crooked numbers to help out mitre please?

  120. No Halladay says:

    Mre reasons why the bunt was smart, otherwise it would still be 2-0, maybe 3-0 on the damon double.

    I used to get pissed at Torre for not playing small ball.

    • Salty Buggah says:

      But look at the situation. We had no outs and everyone was getting on , even Molina walked!. That’s giving up an out. Jeter is on fire too.

    • Yankee1010 says:

      Nostradamus in the house.

      It could also be a lot more than 4-0 if there is no bunt. Giving away outs isn’t the business you want to be in.

    • whozat says:

      Yeah, because Derek Jeter couldn’t POSSIBLY have done anything better than move the runners over, right?

    • Observer283 says:

      No Halladay, you are just flat out assuming that Jeter would not have gotten on base against a pitcher who had thrown 42 pitches without getting anyone out in the second inning, he had gotten a hit off of in the first ininning, and while he is in the midsyt of one of his better hitting streaks in his hall of fame career.

      That’s quite a stretch.

    I love it when a no talent hack like Kay or some fantasy baseball nerds start questioning a bunt by Derek Jeter. Why did he bunt? Because he wanted to. End of story.

    • Chili Davis says:

      Now he’s going after the Blue Jays for salary dumping a “two-time all-star” in Rios and wanting to dump Wells. Toronto was lucky to find a taker for one of those terrible contracts. Kay is killing me today.

    • No Halladay says:

      Sure he wasn’t told to?

    • If it was called for from the dugout, I’d agree it was a bad move given the situation. If Jeter decided to do it himself, I’m not really one to argue.

    Perfect through 3.

  129. Salty Buggah says:

    Mitre!

    Kay you fuckin jinxer

  130. JMK says:

    Are they really criticizing the Jays getting rid of Rios for “nothing”? Getting that bloated, wasteful contract off their payroll was a blessing. It’s addition by subtraction.

    • Dela G says:

      kay is a moron sometimes. That salary dump was one of the best large salary dump moves in years

    • MikeD says:

      I hate Rios. Not personally, but simply because he keeps hitting against the Yankees, but seems to be incredibly mediocre against all other teams. Is it that the Yankees can’t figure out how to pitch to him (along with every pitcher on the staff), or can he only bring his “A” game when he plays the Yankees, which is pretty lame.

      I put the Chone Figgens, Howie Kendrick and the entire California Angels in that class. I mean the Anaheim Angels, or is it the Los Angeles Angels, or the California Angeles of Anaheim, or the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, or the Anaheim Angels of California? Whatever, that annoying team out west we can’t beat.

  131. Dela G says:

    man 3 great innings for mitre!

    on to teh BOTTOM!!

    Pretzel bread? I dont think there’s a blimpie near my house. The closest one is probably 45 min away

  136. Dela G says:

    I can’t imagine Kay having friends.

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

      “Yeah, yeah , yeah Mike, whatever….Hey, do you think you can get Jeter’s autograph for me?”

      That’s how he has friends.

  154. No Halladay says:

    12 up 12 down, 15 to go for a perfect game

  155. VO says:

    Perfect through 4.

  156. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Kay sure loves to throw in perfect as much times as he possibly can.

  157. Dela G says:

    mitre is doing great!

    46 pitches through 4!

    • whozat says:

      He’s doing a pretty good job throwing the sinker, curve and change for strikes. And it looks like this team likes to swing.

  158. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Hell yeah

  159. Salty Buggah says:

    Mitre holy shit!

  160. Riddering says:

    DAYUM.

    Did Mitre go to Nebraska since his last start?

  161. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    MItre is the greatest!!!!

    /Longoria’d

  162. Mr.Jigginz says:

    FEZ POWER!!!

  163. Should have bunted.

  164. Observer283 says:

    No Halladay, thoughts?

  165. Salty Buggah says:

    Thats why you dont bunt Jeter

  166. Dela G says:

    jeter with another hit

  167. Little Bill says:

    Who needs Brad Penny? Mitre is just fine.

  168. Yankee1010 says:

    It’s a good thing Jeter bunted in the 2nd. He just can’t seem to figure Contreras out.

  170. MikeD says:

    Come on Michael Kay. Surely you’re not assuming the predetermined outcome. I’m sure you’ve heard of it.

  171. Dela G says:

    its so odd to see how much of a pull hitter damon has become

  172. Salty Buggah says:

    Jeter has an Edge

  173. Drew says:

    HAAHA BAD NEWS SOX

  174. That’s bad baseball. Damon should have bunted him over to second, not have Jeter steal. Maybe Damon will bunt him to third, since second base isn’t scoring position.

  175. Salty Buggah says:

    THAT WAS FUCKIN HILARIOUS!

  176. Dela G says:

    HAHAHAAHA what the hell was contreras thinking

  177. Riddering says:

    Cue Benny Hill!

  178. Mike Axisa says:

    Hah, defense fail. And fail. And fail and fail.

  179. DreDog says:

    Anyone else notice that this was a rough week, and fake Michael Kay took the week off his Twitter account?

    Coincidence?

  180. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    YAY ERRORS!

  181. Little Bill says:

    Hawk sounds so dejected.

  182. MikeD says:

    Mark, stopping swinging at that pitch.

  183. Salty Buggah says:

    Cmon Alex, drive in at least one

  184. E-ROC says:

    “We can’t do anything right” – White Sox Broadcasting Team. They REALLY depressed right now.

  185. Drew says:

    Attaboy Al

  186. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Mark Teixeira ain’t lookin to hot today..

  187. Dela G says:

    good job a-rod!

  188. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Unclutch stat padder.

  189. MikeD says:

    Bad News White Sox.

  190. Accent Shallow says:

    I’m enjoying the Jermaine Dye RF Experience.

  191. Dela G says:

    pastAdivingKonerko!

    how the hell is Nix EVERYWHERE to prevent errors

  192. Drew says:

    Man I thought Thompson was going to send him when dye fell on his bum.

  193. Mike Axisa says:

    Haha. Remember when people said Dye was a better defender than Swish? At least Swisher doesn’t throw to the infield from his back.

  194. Salty Buggah says:

    Nice Hideki

  195. whozat says:

    0 0 3

    THat’s a tough line for your team, in the 4th inning.
