      Dominance!

    • JGS

      13.5 K/9

      that’s incredible

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

    David Cone <3 PitchFX.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Love Coney. Sneaks in his BRef and Red Ruffing notes on a nightly basis.

  • Bugsy

    it seems like david cone is hip to all the advanced metrics. i wonder if the YES producers tell him to not talk about it.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      No, it’s not sports talk radio.

      • scooter

        And Joe Morgan isn’t in the booth telling us that statistics are overrated

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

      He mentioned OPS the other night and he keeps hinting at the advanced defensive metrics, but won’t name them.

      • Bugsy

        he hints at it in a way that he knows what the advanced stat means, which is more that you can say about everyone else on YES.

  • Moshe Mandel

    I hope they give Bruney another shot.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      They need to see if they can get him going. If not, he may not even make the playoff roster.

      But when he’s right, he can be dominant. So you want to give him every chance.

      • Moshe Mandel

        Exactly.

  • Bugsy

    yuck, bruney.

  • Accent Shallow

    Dear Brian,

    A couple Ks would be nice. Please avoid base knocks and walks. Thanks. Hope you don’t need TJS. Take care.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Bruney? Girardi showing the confidence here, trying to get him going.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Bruney in a 2-run game again. Girardi sure loves him.

  • pat

    Damn, Joe really wants Bruney back in the Circle.

  • Dirt

    That first pitch slider had NO bite

    • Dirt

      Yet after that, the other sliders have been pretty good “92” on the YES gun ha

      • Dirt

        By good I mean good depth, not good velocity, per se

    • Accent Shallow

      I think v.2007 Joba spoiled me — I expect all RHP’s sliders to have a huge break, and be equally effective against lefties and righties.

      • Bugsy

        2007 Joba, RIP.

  • pat

    Sorry Jeets, but Montero is gonna finish up with about 5000 hits. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    • Bugsy

      i believe you mean HRs, not hits

      • Dirt

        Grand Slams? Past balls?

      • pat

        heh, shit Bugs, my bad, you’re correct.

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        No his career line will look like this
        50 Grand Slams
        500 HRs
        5000 Hits
        50,000 Passed Balls
        500,000 Wild Pitches

        • Bugsy

          i like how he continues to play catcher throughout his career.

          • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

            As we all know, catcher is an offense-first position.

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

    Don’t forget Jorge, guys! I am going to pound that Jorge to the HOF drum until it is literally impossible for him to be voted in.

    • RCK

      I said the same thing to my tv. What about Jorge?

    • Bugsy

      too bad HOF voters have no clue what OPS+ means.

  • Moshe Mandel

    Bruney’s thrown 3 strikes in this AB.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Nice job, Brian.

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

    I see my bash Bruney post worked like a charm.

  • nyrfan

    BRRRRUUUUUUNNNNNEEEEEYYYYYYYY

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    I dunno, but I think Tex wanted to be a Yankee all along. Burnett and CC went for the Cash, but I think Tex really wanted to play here. I could be wrong, but that’s my impression.

    • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/04/10/alg_aj-burnett.jpg Mike Pop

      A.J. wanted to play here.

  • Accent Shallow

    A-Rod with a Joe Carter-esque shot out.

  • pat

    Bullet.

  • Randy A.

    A-Rod has Bruney’s back.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Pfffft tack on.

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    Mr. Stat Padder!! Thanks Alex:)

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/04/10/alg_aj-burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Yeaaa boiii!!!

  • Riddering

    BUT TEH POWER.

    TIS GONE.

  • scooter

    Holy crap – how high was ARod’s homer at the highest point?

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    What a bullet.

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

    He touched that ball like he touched the cop before, excessively and without shame.

    • scooter

      ietc

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      Hmmm, nice :)

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

      IETCVM

    • pat

      One of your best, Michael. Bravo.

    • Accent Shallow

      If he had touched the cop the way he touched that ball, he’d have gotten Rodney Kinged.

  • Dirt

    That was hit harder than a lot of things

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    I’m tellin’ that shin pad is lucky. All hail Alex’s shin pad!!

  • Drew

    15-20 feet off the ground. Height is not Coney’s strong point.

  • Bugsy

    A-Rod – The King of “Pop”

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      Hilarious!!

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Damn, Alex will hit #600 sometime early next year.

    This guy’s pretty good, huh?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Alex! Nice!

  • nyrfan

    love the insurance, as well as the fantasy points

    • Bugsy

      me too!

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      I like adding to the Run Differential each night. Its not whether or not we win, just by how much.

      Should hit +146 tonight, which means were just 230 runs behind the 1927 Yanks (+376) and 265 behind the 1939 Yanks (+411)

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/04/10/alg_aj-burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Jorge, damn. Wow!

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    Bandbox.

  • Accent Shallow

    I can support this.

  • Bugsy

    2009 are allergic to save situations.

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

    Relievers must be terrified when they come in to face this team.

  • BigBlueAL

    Fuckin love Coney and his stats!!

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Another 9th inning par-tay.

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    Hip hip Jorge!!!

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

    Tack on.

  • http://twitter.com/Hopjake Jake H

    What else can you say about this O?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Hip Hip! Damn, what a shot.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Are there no one in those seats? Sheesh, how much do THEY charge?

  • pat

    Dang it, i kinda called that ish earlier. Whatever.

    Hairston gets credit for the run scored right? Not matsui..

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    I know Jorge can count to 20 because he’s just joined the 20 hr. club!! C’mon, Derek- 3 more to go!!

  • Accent Shallow

    “Matsui: well liked in the clubhouse. Massive porn collection, willing to let you borrow a video or magazine at any time.”

  • LiveFromNewYork

    When you don’t understand a word anyone says, you laugh a lot. Ergo, seems like a good sesne of humor.

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    Hideki givin’ the business to Posada!! Godzilla is not impressed with Jorge’s power!!! Do I smell batting practice homer contest coming?

  • Accent Shallow

    I’d rather Robbie walk than get a hit.

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

    Way to work it, Robbie. Let’s get a few more runs and GET IT DUNN.

  • nyrfan

    struck out the first two, then the wheels came off

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

    Nice curve there.

  • pat

    Damn, how much does the pitcher hate this shit? 10-5, robbie works the count full then takes a borderline ball and works a walk.

    WTF where the hell did that ball go? HAHAH

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      Ontario?

  • Moshe Mandel

    I’d love to see Melancon.

  • Moshe Mandel

    I’d love to see Melancon.

  • Moshe Mandel

    I’d love to see Melancon.

    • Moshe Mandel

      Wow, never done that before. I guess on some level, I really, really want to see Melancon.

      • Riddering

        There are websites for that.

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        I’m amazed you got past the “duplicate comment” thing.

      • Bob Stone

        How did you do that????

  • Riddering

    Has anyone scored from first on a wild pitch?

    I’d like to see that someday. As long as it’s not off Burnett/Posada.

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

      I think Ellsbury did that.

      • Riddering

        Of course, the one player to drain me of curiosity. ;)

  • pat

    Holy crap, Put that list back up THATS SO MANY HOMERUNS!!

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    Jeez, and we thought the O’s looked pathetic. The Jays have totally quit and for tonight I thank them for that:)

  • pat

    OH FAWK THIS, ENOUGH BRUNEYYYYYYY

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/04/10/alg_aj-burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Jete or Melky need to get hot. Need to get 8 to 20.

    Hinske!

  • LiveFromNewYork

    I was reading Camden whatever its called last night and one guy said I’m going to raise my kid a Yankee fan and spare them the hell that is my life as an O’s fan.

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      sad & funny.

      • pat

        Yeah that website is a hoot. They’re so bitter and hopeless, I love it.

  • Accent Shallow

    So Bruney isn’t 100% yet. Ergh.

  • pat

    5 run lead you walk the guy on 4 pitches. Have fun raking leaves in October you schmuck.

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      What does watching the leaves change color in October make you?

      • DreDog

        A Mets fan?

      • pat

        a leafer

        • PinstripesForeverDouglas

          Hmm, I goin’ with Pat’s answer but thanks for replying Dre Dog!

          • pat

            Hahah, Mets fan would be the person raking leaves while crying uncontrollably.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Not sure I agree with Bruney pitching here. He just pitched a great inning, why risk him having a lousy inning and lose the confidence he’s starting to build up again?

    • beware of michael kay

      agreed

  • pat

    I’m diggin the kicks Damaso.

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/04/10/alg_aj-burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    OH NOES!! KEvin Millar!

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      Time to cowboy up!! Oh, damn I missed the magnificent seven tonight on TCM. Damn this 1st place team and it’s exciting play!

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    Question? Who will be Joba’s caddy tomorrow? I’m thinking Melancon & Albajedo.

    • Jack
      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/04/10/alg_aj-burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        I love Jack’s links.

        Not the beef jerky.

        • Jack

          Those cost extra.

            That’s right buddy. Nobody rides for free.

        hahah thats an awesome link

  • Accent Shallow

    Canadian hecklers: what are they yelling aboot?

    Mad this isn’t hockey?

    • http://ibleedblueandwhite.com Jamie

      I think the dude is yelling at Vernon Wells. Said something about the worst contract in baseball as decided by SI?

    • pat

      Is he yelling at Wells? “Worst contract in baseball”.. who else? WHO BUT?!

      • Accent Shallow

        Even Zito is having an acceptable year. Not worth the contract, but not the dead weight Wells is.

  • http://ibleedblueandwhite.com Jamie

    someone tell this asshole to shut up in the background

  • acb

    hahhaa im crackin up at that guy yelling VERNON WELLS WORST CONTRACT IN BASEBALL over and over and over

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Hahahahah!!!

      He’s been killing him all inning, and you see guys laughing in the stands, and Kay and Coney are trying to talk over him.

      • pat

        YES def turns the mics up for that, no doubt.

    • Dirt

      I think he said it for like 2 minutes straight

  • Dirt

    Anybody else hear this guy just ragging on Vernon Wells? “Worst contract in baseball! Vernon! Worst contract in baseball!”

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      He has a sign, too. They showed it earlier in the game.

  • beware of michael kay

    kevin millar: AL East ho

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      Is Eric Hinske his pimp then? Considering he has played for every team but the O’s?

      • beware of michael kay

        i’m pretty you’re right, yes

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

        If that’s the case, what of Kevin Cash? He’s done the same as Hinske though in much fewer appearances.

        • PinstripesForeverDouglas

          Just another filly in Hinske’s stable of ho’s !

  • PinstripesForeverDouglas

    G’bye Mr. Idiot!! Bravo Marte :)

    • Accent Shallow

      Cowboy down.

  • http://ibleedblueandwhite.com Jamie

    Looks like Marte did the smart thing and got back on the juice. I likey.

  • Accent Shallow

    I was going to make a “Damaso Marte: True Yankee(tm)” joke about inability to throw strikes with a big lead, but he fucked up the joke and struck out Millar. That works.

    Him being healthy would be huge.

  • Bugsy

    marte > bruney.

    wow

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/04/10/alg_aj-burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Marte!

    Huge addition for the playoffs. Great game.

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      Agreed Mr. Pop!

      Magic Number- Roger Clemens Robinson Cano # 22 !

      Better.

      • PinstripesForeverDouglas

        Yeah, I guess so, Matt.

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

          I hold tight to that Cano 22 t-shirt jersey I have.

          • VO

            For my brothers birthday 2 weeks ago my aunt got him a Cabrera 28 jersey. When he opened it she asked me if he was good I said “Sure number 53 is having a great season”

            • PinstripesForeverDouglas

              IETC

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

              Haha, I have a Cabrera 28 and I got a Soriano 33 right before Wells came back and took 33.

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

                But none of these is as awesome as my Hughes 65.

    Damaso is dirty.

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

    Way to go, Damaso.

  • nyrfan

    in the books

  • Moshe Mandel

    He’s pretty much a lock for the postseason roster. Healthy Marte has been a big development of the last few weeks.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Impressive Marte.

  • beware of michael kay

    A .500 finish gets ya 100 W’s. What a steamroller

  • Accent Shallow

    Yay Marte! Yay win!

  • LiveFromNewYork

    soup bowls? it does get worse after calculator night

    • http://ibleedblueandwhite.com Jamie

      just thinking the same thing. it almost sounded like Kay was giving a little sarcasm in his voice when he realized he was hawking, “sooouup bowls” for Boar’s Head. Hilarious.

      Wonder what marketing genius thought that up.

      • pat

        If the bowl comes filled with fermented chicken drink I think we’ll know who’s behind it.

        • Drew

          that damn tyson chicken and their new hip drinks.

  • http://ibleedblueandwhite.com Jamie

    The funniest thing ever was when any of the beat writers would ask Joe or Ca$h about Marte like the entire year when he was coming back, the answer as the year went by just morphed into, “i don’t know”

    hahahah I don’t know why i find that so funny but i do.
