Is this lead Mike Dunn proof?

  • Dela G

    attaboy edwar

    onto the mike dunn sighting!

  • Drew

    That’s pretty sick that Z-Mac is getting the call to AAA.

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    I won’t smoke, I won’t smoke! Just stop it with these commercials.

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

      This.

    • alex gonzalez
      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        I like what comes later when he’s doing it to Peter in the office.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      His accent is great, though. It sounds Lithuanian.

      /Window seat, please.

    • MikeD

      Those commercials should be declared “acts of terrorism.”

  • VO

    If it’s Edwar proof it’s Dunn proof.

      Is it Andrew Brackman proof?

      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        Only if Molina is catching.

        • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

          I’d love to see Brackman. Just for shits and giggles, ya know?

          His last few outings have been really good; hopefully he continues like that next year.

          • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

            He is on the 40-Man. You know just bring him up so everyone can see what he looks like

            • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

              He’s the only guy they measure in metric units. He’s a frickin’ giraffe!

      • Mike bk

        the way brackman went out of the pen sure is.

      • zs190

        Hey now, Brackman has had pretty good command for a few games now. Now Sam Elam…that’s another story.

  • Drew

    Pinch run for matsui? No?

  • Dela G

    The hits keep on coming

    [/kay’d

  • alex gonzalez

    they should let all those kids that didn’t pitch well come out. they got nothing to lose besides maybe more of there dignity.

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Cano is taking a siesta.

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

      He’s so lazy that he’s letting someone else bat for him.

  • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

    Yeahhhh Shelley!

  • Dela G

    SHELLY DUNCAN SIGHTING!!

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

    Shelley sighting!

  • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

    Throw Shelley a fastball!

  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    Shelley would be great in fastball-only games.

    • alex gonzalez

      those all were fastballs, he didn’t do anything.

      • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

        It’s one AB.

      • Johan Iz My Brohan

        hello again…

  • Riddering

    I love the buzz in the crowd with Shelley’s appearance.

  • Drew

    Shelley would hit 5th in the Mets lineup.

    • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

      He has more plate discipline than Frenchy

    • MikeD

      The Yankees have three minor leagues who would have played first base for the Mets once Delgado went down. Duncan, Miranda and Jorge Vazquez, who was having a great year before he was injured.

      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        Trade them all for Beltran.

  • bonestock94

    Oh man

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Johnny Alb now?

    Let’s see him serve k them out.

  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    I went to the Jersey Shore last weekend. Holy lord, the whole ocean is polluted with that Axe Body Spray shit. And the air–it’s stifling!

    Who actually likes that stuff?

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Jose at first, that’s pretty funny.

    • Drew

      He was there last night too I think.

  • VO

    Jose playing first?

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

    Lol, Girardi’s got jokes.

  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    The eyedes of September are upon us?

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

      Oh I see what you did there.

  • Drew

    Only Kay could bring “manifestation” into a conversation about getting hit with a ball while playing catch.

    • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

      Haha

  • Mike bk

    wow what a defense…hinskie at 3rd, shelley in right and molina at 1st.

    • Zack

      combined -100 UZR

      • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

        That’s it? I figured it’d be worse.

        • Zack

          i just went -33 each to be nice. but just for kicks id love to see Molina at 1B for 150 games

          • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

            Cody Ransom=Dividing by zero.

  • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

    Who would have a better UZR in the outfield? Jose Molina or Bobby Abreu?

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

      Speaking of UZR, I’ve been watching the US Open a decent amount lately and I cannot help but think that some of those tennis players would make dynamite SS/2B.

      • Johan Iz My Brohan

        Andy Roddick has a wicked serve too, I wonder how that translates to throwing a baseball.

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

        Yup. I can definitely see Fed making the sweet DP turn like Cano.

    • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

      It doesn’t matter because UZR is the suck.

      • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

        Its a CrAzY sTaT! My EyEs!!

  • Riddering

    Defensively, this is our Z lineup, yes?

    • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

      Offensively too.

      • Riddering

        Hey! Tonight, Molina’s batting OVER NINE THOUSAND.

        • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

          Jose Molina is now 90 for his last 10

          • Riddering

            His OBP is through the roof.

            Tonight.

  • bonestock94

    This updated line-up has given today’s game new life.

  • Dela G

    alby lookin good

    • alex gonzalez

      are we watching different games?

      • Dela G

        this was said right before the two runners reached base….

        • alex gonzalez

          I didnt realize the time frame. my bad, although if he allowed a three run jack you would have probably called it a “damn good job” by alby and then blamed it on the defense.

        • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

          You should consider ignoring the guy.

          • Drew

            +1, it’s much, much easier.

            • alex gonzalez

              +1, very, very easy

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Chances noMaas puts up anything on AJ having a good start?

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

      They’ll give credit to Molina.

    • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

      -10%

  • GG

    Wow, so what were left with is:
    Pena 2B
    Damon LF
    Gardner CF
    Matsui DH
    Hinske 3B
    Duncan RF
    Cervelli C
    Hairston SS
    Molina 1B

    Take Damon out

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

      Let Dunn play LF.

    • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

      We don’t have anyone to put in?

      • alex gonzalez

        put that lazy bum arod in, make him catch so I can have a few laughs.

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

    I don’t know what the deal with this “9” movie is, but the promo uses a Coheed and Cambria song. That kinda makes me want to go see it. Kind of.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      I love playing that song on guitar.

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

        Yeah, I wasn’t a huge fan of that album, though. The previous two were much better.

        • handtius

          You should hear they’re old stuff, when they were Shabutie.

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

            Yeah? How hard is that to get? Speaking of ‘way back’ and bands, I think I once heard a song from when Jesse Lacey of Brand New “fame” was in Taking Back Sunday. Weird, wild stuff.

            • handtius

              I don’t know. I have some though. I grew up with some of them (Claudio and Travis). To tell you the truth, it’s not that good. There’s a few golden eggs in there, precursors to C&C, but it’s worth a listen. search for them on myspace. it may still be up. “Camouflage” is a good one. As for Taking Back Sunday, I’m pass all together. Not my cup of jo.A little old for that.

    • handtius

      i’m seeing it.

  • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

    Hey look at that A-rod is on the top step too

    So much for him not being a team player and all about himself.

    • Steve H

      He’s just scoping the crowd for chicks.

      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        No, he’s pitch tipping.

        • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

          Bitch tits.

        • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

          If you read the Roberts book, you’d know that’s the only time he ever tips. Hooters waitresses are not happy.

          • steve (different one)

            it’s not his fault. he misheard the advice he got from Chipper Jones about Hooter’s waittresses.

            Chipper said “just the tip”

            • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

              Well played, sir. Well played.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD
  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    Chemistry breeds biology! Gotcha, Kay!

  • mike jones

    What happened to Edwar Ramirez…I thought he used to be good?

    • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

      Used to be.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      Who?

  • Drew

    Haha, Swish making Al scratch his head… Not surprised. Swish may be nuts.

    • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

      Swish is always making those dudes laugh.

      Seems like a chill dude.

  • Riddering

    Hey, our brilliant plan to keep from needing Mo tonight worked!

    • Zack

      beat the shit out of sonnastine – check
      AJ pitch a good game – check
      bullpen keep it going – check

    • Drew

      Yeah, but if we needed him, we wouldn’t have him! Clueless Joe at it again.

      • Riddering

        Worst manager ever. It’s only because of Pena in the dugout that we ever win games.

  • MikeD

    Wow. A Molina walk might be more surprising than all the hits.

    • Zack

      2 in 1 game

  • Dela G

    damn molina has an A-rod-like line tonight

    • Zack

      singles hitter!

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      He’s just stat-padding, OHDONTCHAKNOW!

  • Drew

    Kay: So, forget what I said.

    I wish I could Kay, I wish I could…

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      Kay: I roofie myself to wake up in the morning and discover what I’m really capable of.

      (Pause)

      Kay: I misspoke. Forget what I said.

  • King of Fruitless Hypotheticals

    …RAB have a mobile-friendly site? I’m dying here…

      How about they get a Blackbery app too.

      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        We should get benefits for every 2,500 comments.

  • Dela G

    save the offense tomorrow for price

    we’ll need it i think

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

      Price has been thoroughly “meh” this season.

      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        As expected.

        But if he keeps struggling, to thy 8th!

      • Zack

        especially recently. look at post ASB, he’s cut down on his walk rate, but his K rate also dropped, and BAA has gone up. oh and hes a 5 inning pitchaaaaah

        • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

          A buddy of mine just showed me this Mike Francessa vid.

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNdNIg7j_Aw

          • Drew

            ahhhahaha

            Understand?

            • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

              Joe DiMaggio is Joe DiMaggio. Joe DiMaggio in 1982 is doing nothing except being Joe DiMaggio. Joe DiMaggio is Joe DiMaggio.

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

                What was that even about? Did Joe D do something stupid in ’82? I was too busy being -5 years old to notice.

                • Drew

                  Who cares, at least now we know, Joe DiMaggio is not Joe DiMaggio because of 1982. He’s Joe DiMaggio because he’s Joe DiMaggio, not because of 1982. Understand?

                • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

                  Exactly.

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

            What…the…fuck…?

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

    Getting preeeeeetty sick of that KGB ad.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      It’s not nearly as bad as the NYQUIT commercials or the Axe commercials.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Then you haven’t seen (actually you most likely have seen) the Vlasic commercials….

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hcVcXu51RA (SFW)

      there’s 2 others, but I don’t want to bother.

  • Dela G

    yay dunn!

  • Kingjoe793

    Mike Dunn !!!!

  • Drew

    How sick would it be to be able to buy a dugout microphone feed. I’d love to know what they’re talking about.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      It could turn into its own show. “Sex Tips with the MelkMan” by Melky Cabrera.

      Telemundo, of course.

    • Riddering

      Me too. When I watch games with less…devoted fans, they wonder about my obsessive need to know everything going on. But, yeah, to have some inkling into those dugout chats would be fun.

  • Joseph P.

    and he walks the 1st batter lol

  • Dela G

    dunn

    you have to throw strikes

    pretty please?

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

    Mike…come on.

  • Dela G

    hey he got an out!

  • danny

    Dunn is in great shape :)

  • Dela G

    boy, after this season, someone needs to spend time with him throwing at a target for hours

    • Joseph P.

      i def. agree his command is something else

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      Or throwing at Cody Ransom for hours.

  • Riddering

    Our first baseman counseling Dunn. :p

    • Zack

      having 2 catchers on the field at once- girardi is the genius!

  • Zack

    another walk…

  • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

    Dunn come on, just throw it down the middle.

  • Dela G

    how was that ball 4???

    that was strike 1

  • MikeD

    What is that, five walks in one inning of MLB pitching so far? I think we see what he needs to work on.

    • scooter

      AJ looking great is the biggest thing out of this game. CC, AJ, Andy is a nice trifecta to start the playoffs

      • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

        Right on, scoot.

  • VO

    Odds that Mariano starts warming?

  • http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/07/23/alg_burnett.jpg Mike Pop

    Are you sure that’s not Posada behind the plate?

    • Riddering

      LOL.

      It definitely says something about the score that this 9th is making me laugh.

  • Riddering

    If Posada was catching or at 1B, Dunn would have given up 10 runs by now.

  • cjc

    wow just wow

  • Drew

    Bro, throw the shit underhand, throw an eephus, do something, just throw a strike.

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

    HE THREW A STRIKE! Woo!

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

      Two in a row!

  • Joseph P.

    a Strikeout =O

  • Dela G

    there you go dunn

    congrats man on the K

  • Riddering

    FIRST BIG LEAGUE K.

    Thank you, Tampa!

  • Zack

    odds he goes 3-0 against kapler? 80%

  • cjc

    progress nice

    prediction he wll replace coke at some point next year

    • MikeD

      He has the stuff, he just needs the control. Hard to predict when, or if, that will come.

  • Drew

    Who’s faster, JoMo or the Ray’s first base coach?

  • Joseph P.

    Another Hurray !!

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

    Oh PEACE, Gabe.

    Michael Dunn is about as controlled as WalMart the week prior to Christmas. Mariano, on the other hand, is under control as much as WalMart is before Kwanzaa.

      You going to be here all week? Just so I know if I have to leave right now.

    I’m giddy at the strong potential of a 3-digit win record.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      23 games left and we need 11 for the Triple Digits.

      11-12 in the last stretch of the season… that’s weak, we will win a lot bunch more than 100 games.

  • Riddering

    Those standings are pretty fierce. And to think, I was sure the Yanks wouldn’t hold on to the East for good after we got it back post-ASB.

    Glad to be wrong!

    What do we have like 44 come from behinders this year?

    • steve (different one)

      if this game counts, then i don’t think the stat is all that meaningful…

      • http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/08/08/soxyank6__1249712396_8566.jpg Tom Zig

        no it isn’t meaningful just fun to keep track of

        • steve (different one)

          no, you’re right, it is cool.

          just think it would be better if “come from behind” was defined a little more strictly.

    Derek is getting annoyed with all these questions.

      and the next day, its just a double header sweep.

  • manimal

    Tied the win total for last year.

  • Drew

    What a win for the Canes!!! That was a sick game.

    The Yankee MLB site is talking about Jeter possibly passing Pete Rose’s record eventually…as much as I like Jeter, I don’t see that happening.

    • whozat

      If he hung on forever and ever, I think it could happen. He could cling on with a team like the Pirates or the Padres or the Nats for years pinch hitting and playing all over the IF, and putting some butts in the seats with his name.

      He wouldn’t, though. I think that Jeter, like Mussina, will want to go out on his own terms and not get shamed out of the game by sucking so badly that no one will give him a job.

    • Drew

      His career average is 200 hits/Inning.

      This is arguably the best year he’s had, sans 1999. I think, the way he keeps himself in shape, he can play another 5 years. That puts him close to 3800 hits based on career average. However unlikely it is, I don’t think you can write it off.
