One more thread to bring this one home…
60 SO in 40 IP BITCHES!!!!
David Cone <3 PitchFX.
Love Coney. Sneaks in his BRef and Red Ruffing notes on a nightly basis.
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.
No, it’s not sports talk radio.
And Joe Morgan isn’t in the booth telling us that statistics are overrated
He mentioned OPS the other night and he keeps hinting at the advanced defensive metrics, but won’t name them.
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.
I hope they give Bruney another shot.
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.
A couple Ks would be nice. Please avoid base knocks and walks. Thanks. Hope you don’t need TJS. Take care.
Bruney? Girardi showing the confidence here, trying to get him going.
Bruney in a 2-run game again. Girardi sure loves him.
Damn, Joe really wants Bruney back in the Circle.
That first pitch slider had NO bite
Yet after that, the other sliders have been pretty good “92” on the YES gun ha
By good I mean good depth, not good velocity, per se
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.
2007 Joba, RIP.
Sorry Jeets, but Montero is gonna finish up with about 5000 hits. Enjoy it while it lasts.
i believe you mean HRs, not hits
Grand Slams? Past balls?
heh, shit Bugs, my bad, you’re correct.
No his career line will look like this
50 Grand Slams
50,000 Passed Balls
500,000 Wild Pitches
i like how he continues to play catcher throughout his career.
As we all know, catcher is an offense-first position.
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.
I said the same thing to my tv. What about Jorge?
too bad HOF voters have no clue what OPS+ means.
Bruney’s thrown 3 strikes in this AB.
Nice job, Brian.
I see my bash Bruney post worked like a charm.
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.
A.J. wanted to play here.
A-Rod with a Joe Carter-esque shot out.
A-Rod has Bruney’s back.
Pfffft tack on.
Mr. Stat Padder!! Thanks Alex:)
BUT TEH POWER.
Holy crap – how high was ARod’s homer at the highest point?
What a bullet.
He touched that ball like he touched the cop before, excessively and without shame.
Hmmm, nice :)
One of your best, Michael. Bravo.
If he had touched the cop the way he touched that ball, he’d have gotten Rodney Kinged.
That was hit harder than a lot of things
I’m tellin’ that shin pad is lucky. All hail Alex’s shin pad!!
15-20 feet off the ground. Height is not Coney’s strong point.
A-Rod – The King of “Pop”
Damn, Alex will hit #600 sometime early next year.
This guy’s pretty good, huh?
love the insurance, as well as the fantasy points
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)
Jorge, damn. Wow!
I can support this.
2009 are allergic to save situations.
Relievers must be terrified when they come in to face this team.
Fuckin love Coney and his stats!!
Another 9th inning par-tay.
Hip hip Jorge!!!
What else can you say about this O?
Hip Hip! Damn, what a shot.
Are there no one in those seats? Sheesh, how much do THEY charge?
Dang it, i kinda called that ish earlier. Whatever.
Hairston gets credit for the run scored right? Not matsui..
I know Jorge can count to 20 because he’s just joined the 20 hr. club!! C’mon, Derek- 3 more to go!!
“Matsui: well liked in the clubhouse. Massive porn collection, willing to let you borrow a video or magazine at any time.”
Sketchy wife though.
When you don’t understand a word anyone says, you laugh a lot. Ergo, seems like a good sesne of humor.
Hideki givin’ the business to Posada!! Godzilla is not impressed with Jorge’s power!!! Do I smell batting practice homer contest coming?
I’d rather Robbie walk than get a hit.
Way to work it, Robbie. Let’s get a few more runs and GET IT DUNN.
I’m willing to bet Dunn would walk his way into a save situation.
struck out the first two, then the wheels came off
Nice curve there.
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
I’d love to see Melancon.
Wow, never done that before. I guess on some level, I really, really want to see Melancon.
There are websites for that.
I’m amazed you got past the “duplicate comment” thing.
How did you do that????
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.
I think Ellsbury did that.
Of course, the one player to drain me of curiosity. ;)
Holy crap, Put that list back up THATS SO MANY HOMERUNS!!
Jeez, and we thought the O’s looked pathetic. The Jays have totally quit and for tonight I thank them for that:)
OH FAWK THIS, ENOUGH BRUNEYYYYYYY
Jete or Melky need to get hot. Need to get 8 to 20.
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.
sad & funny.
Yeah that website is a hoot. They’re so bitter and hopeless, I love it.
So Bruney isn’t 100% yet. Ergh.
5 run lead you walk the guy on 4 pitches. Have fun raking leaves in October you schmuck.
What does watching the leaves change color in October make you?
A Mets fan?
Hmm, I goin’ with Pat’s answer but thanks for replying Dre Dog!
Hahah, Mets fan would be the person raking leaves while crying uncontrollably.
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?
I’m diggin the kicks Damaso.
OH NOES!! KEvin Millar!
Time to cowboy up!! Oh, damn I missed the magnificent seven tonight on TCM. Damn this 1st place team and it’s exciting play!
Question? Who will be Joba’s caddy tomorrow? I’m thinking Melancon & Albajedo.
I love Jack’s links.
Not the beef jerky.
Those cost extra.
That’s right buddy. Nobody rides for free.
hahah thats an awesome link
Canadian hecklers: what are they yelling aboot?
Mad this isn’t hockey?
I think the dude is yelling at Vernon Wells. Said something about the worst contract in baseball as decided by SI?
Is he yelling at Wells? “Worst contract in baseball”.. who else? WHO BUT?!
Even Zito is having an acceptable year. Not worth the contract, but not the dead weight Wells is.
someone tell this asshole to shut up in the background
hahhaa im crackin up at that guy yelling VERNON WELLS WORST CONTRACT IN BASEBALL over and over and over
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.
YES def turns the mics up for that, no doubt.
I think he said it for like 2 minutes straight
Anybody else hear this guy just ragging on Vernon Wells? “Worst contract in baseball! Vernon! Worst contract in baseball!”
He has a sign, too. They showed it earlier in the game.
kevin millar: AL East ho
Is Eric Hinske his pimp then? Considering he has played for every team but the O’s?
i’m pretty you’re right, yes
If that’s the case, what of Kevin Cash? He’s done the same as Hinske though in much fewer appearances.
Just another filly in Hinske’s stable of ho’s !
G’bye Mr. Idiot!! Bravo Marte :)
Looks like Marte did the smart thing and got back on the juice. I likey.
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.
marte > bruney.
Huge addition for the playoffs. Great game.
Agreed Mr. Pop!
Magic Number- Roger Clemens # 22 !
Magic Number- Roger Clemens Robinson Cano # 22 !
Yeah, I guess so, Matt.
I hold tight to that Cano 22 t-shirt jersey I have.
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”
Haha, I have a Cabrera 28 and I got a Soriano 33 right before Wells came back and took 33.
But none of these is as awesome as my Hughes 65.
Damaso is dirty.
Way to go, Damaso.
in the books
He’s pretty much a lock for the postseason roster. Healthy Marte has been a big development of the last few weeks.
A .500 finish gets ya 100 W’s. What a steamroller
Yay Marte! Yay win!
soup bowls? it does get worse after calculator night
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.
If the bowl comes filled with fermented chicken drink I think we’ll know who’s behind it.
that damn tyson chicken and their new hip drinks.
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.
Team. is. just. sick.
Featured Poll 10 of 13
Who is the Angels best starting pitcher?
I don’t like Gaudin.
“it’s a little bit hard when you don’t know when you’re pitchin'”
Cone said you missed with a lot of pitches outside, he said it may be fatigue.
“No, it wasn’t fatigue, I was being to careful”
