      Probably offer him arbitration (I haven’t checked lately to see if he’s still a type b). Not sure if he’ll accept it.

    I live in Red Sox territory…just went out for MNF and wings and didn’t hear the end of it…they’re all ready to take over the division and it pisses me off…and I say everything everybody else says…but the fact of the matter is…we’re going to be 4-5 and they’ll again be 9-1 in their last 10…let me remind you were were 9 games up on September 10th…if what is happening continues…tomorrow, after 12 days…we’d have lost 5 games in the standings…in September close to the playoffs…it’s concerning.

      • JGS

        2006 cardinals limped into october having nearly lost their division in the final week, and that would have kicked them out of the playoffs entirely. then they went on to win the world series

        • Zack

          only because they took their top pitching prospect and put him in the bullpen and kept him there like a smart team would….oh yeah nevermind.

          • Jersey

            You mean like Hughes?

            • Zack

              yup, we should keep him in the pen. i know the Cardinals are pissed they moved Wainwright back to the rotation

              • Jersey

                The Cards would have won 108 games this year if Wainright was still closing.

                115 if he were pitching the 8th.

          • JGS

            wait, Wainwright isn’t closing games in St Louis?

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Learn to debate better. We are the best team in baseball. That fact alone is like an iron hammer that you can drop on them any time you like.

        Don’t let a Sox fan out-argue you. They have smaller cranial capacities due to years of inbreeding. It should be a virtual walkover.

        • Jersey

          Or, stick him with a shiv.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      Why are you sooo negative, it’s sickening.

      There is almost no way the Sox take the division away from the Yankees. Who cares about the slump the Yankees have been having, there is still plenty of regular season baseball to get hot again.

      • http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2008/07/23/rose460.jpg makavelli

        While I don’t see what is “sickening” about being legitimately concerned about actual things that are happening…

        I agree that there are 12 games left and that a team that has been playing .800 baseball for a while couldn’t just start playing .400 ball…at least that’s what I hope…but if tonight continues…that just might be what’s going on…

        • Zack

          the yankees going 4-5 and the red sox going 9-1 is a legit concern?

          • http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2008/07/23/rose460.jpg makavelli

            when we’re going 4-5 for the most part against the Orioles, Blue Jays, and Mariners…yes…I would say I’m a tad concerned…

            • Zack

              thats your problem then

    • Accent Shallow

      Let’s do some math. We’re currently four (4) games up in the loss column.

      NYA 95-55
      BOS 89-59

      Say, for the sake of argument, that the Yankees are swept by the Angels. The Sox take 3 of 4 from the Royals.

      NYA 95-58
      BOS 92-60

      Still two up in the loss column entering a series against the Red Sox. Can you say “control your own destiny”? This team does not scare me.

    • Chris

      In Boston’s last 11 games they are 10-1.

      The Yankees went 10-1 from August 5 through August 15. Here’s how they did around that winning streak:

      July 25-Aug 4: 5-5
      Aug 5-Aug 15: 10-1
      Aug 16-Aug 27: 5-5

      Just because a team is hot for two weeks doesn’t mean it will last long…

      • http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2008/07/23/rose460.jpg makavelli

        The difference is, Joba has been terrible for a very long time…AJ pitched good for the first time since the Bush Administration…and we still lost…Andy has “shoulder fatigue”…etc.

        This was the whole point I made before about next years schedule and the Sox, AGAIN, finishing at home and the Yankees, AGAIN, finishing on the road. It seems meaningless until stuff like starts taking place.

                  Listen, I bring up legitimate concerns…just because your clan doesn’t have a legitimate answer for them doesn’t necessarily merit ganging up on people until they agree with everything you say.

                  Some people have other views on things…not everybody bought the same rose colored glasses you did. And not everybody sees a guy on the message boards and just agrees with him because other people like him. I have my own opinions and concerns…if you don’t agree with them you can kindly state why and go away…you don’t need to start a crusade with your minions afterwards because you feel threatened.

        He hasn’t commented on any of the posts because he likely doesn’t have the patience that some of the rest of us do. We engage you time and again, often against our better judgement, because we are willing to rehash shit fruitlessly for a few hundred times. Moshe is only willing to rehash the same tired shit fruitlessly once or twice, and then he just puts you on ignore, but you’ve worn down even his patience for ignoring you. He just wants you gone now.

          “The same tired shit” would mean that it would have to be something similar to what I have said…which it isn’t. In fact, he didn’t comment ONCE on this “tired shit” which is actually a legitimate concern. He may have commented on something entirely different at one point…but this is something new. The fact that people get angry, defensive, shy away, etc…just proves that people understand the concern but choose to hide away from it.

                Actually, I didn’t tell you to wait for an open thread. What I said to you was, “None of this has anything to do with what I’m talking about, so I’m ignoring it. Have fun running through your doomsday scenarios in your mind by yourself.”

                I didn’t say you should wait for the gamethread to post your off-topicness. I said I was ignoring your reply to me because it wasn’t what I was talking about.

                In this thread, you posted the same shit you post over and over again, which was not off topic. MOSHE, not ME, got tired of you constantly posting the same shit over and over again and asked that you be banned for posting the same comment repeatedly, irrespective of the on-topic or off-topic rules. THAT’S what happened. You annoyed two different people in two different ways for doing the same thing in two different threads. And annoyed one of them (who was joined by others who agreed with him) to the point that he asked you to be banned.

                Again, that should tell you something. You think you’re persecuted, but there may be a good reason you get persecuted.

    Does anyone think Michael Bowden looks a bit like Alex Belth?

    • Accent Shallow

      No, I’ve never had the urge to punch Mr. Banter.

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

    Stringing hits together fail.

  • aj

    If he’s 1 for 30 or w/e it is why don’t they bench him for Gardner

    • Anth

      Probably cause Saunders is a lefty

      • aj

        that’s insanity.

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

        In a very SSS, Gardner is hitting .291/.355/.425 against lefties. When Melky’s hitting that poorly, just go with the SSS to shake it up. Neither one of these guys is probably the future in CF, so just play the hot (or less cold) hand.

  • Salty Buggah

    Fuckin bad BABIP luck

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Don’t you get tired of saying bad luck?

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

        Don’t you get tired of constantly saying all negative things? I literally cannot recall one positive thing you have ever said. Ever. I know we’ve had this conversation before but you have never had anything good to say. Ever.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        If something is true, should I not say it just because I’ve said it before?

        I’m tall. When people ask me “How were you able to get that glass off of that top shelf in the cabinet”, should I not say “Because I’m tall” because I’ve said it many times before?

        • Brazilian Yankee

          We get it, it’s bad luck. This is a 95-win team so far, we know they aren’t as bad as they are playing right now. Still that doesn’t mean we should say “It’s bad luck” every ten seconds.

          • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

            Still that doesn’t mean we should say “It’s bad luck” every ten seconds.

            A) Nobody is saying “bad luck” every ten seconds. That’s hyperbole.
            B) What if bad luck was really happening every ten seconds? Should we not then say “That was bad luck” if it was happening at that rate?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Saunders sucks. How are they not hitting him?

  • Dela G

    my god

    why the hell is molina still in this game?

    put in matsui and lets get the effing offense going please?

    • Dela G

      ugh never mind, i forgot about losing the DH

      ARGH

      • JGS

        no need–put Cervelli in at catcher, but then you lose Matsui after one at bat

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Matsui is not in there because he’s a lefty and we all know LHBs can’t hit lefty pitchers. At least that’s Girardi’s thought process.

      • Zack

        no, thats not it at all- because all of our lefties hit LHP well. it probably because he has no knees, needs time off, Posada has a sore neck, but need some ABs to get going again, keep his legs fresh.

        or we can just bitch that girardi sucks and this team won 95 games inspite of him

  • Accent Shallow

    That’s about what you can expect from Molina, I guess.

    They better get to Saunders, because he’s only thrown 63 pitches. Ugh.

  • aj

    Where the hell is Kristan Cunningham!? I’m tired of hearing these drunks…it was insane and we were there ahahhahahaha…who the hell is cleaning up that mess?

      • Accent Shallow

        Weaker arm: Pennington post-surgery, or Damon?

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Joakim Soria against the bottom of the order? Yes, please.

  • Dela G

    fucking A

    Andy hopefully will regain composure

  • Accent Shallow

    A walk to Quinlan, and a line drive to Mathis? Come on Andy, these guys are free outs.

    However, no first to third. What a bonus.

  • Dela G

    wow damon’s arm is so weak it’s not even funny

  • aj

    God, Yogi at his age could tag up on Damon’s arm.

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

    Hmm, I wonder if Damon would’ve been better served letting Melky get that ball with a better angle to throw.

        very. but since there’s a “chance” of it happening, apparently that means it will.

        Less hilarious then getting fustigated after being up 3-0 in a playoff series.

    you can not, under any circumstances, walk the Angels. They will kill you.

    Bookkeeping question: There’s a sac fly hit with one out (the out recorded on the fly ball is out #2). Does that run count as a run with one out or with two?

    Okay, Bobby, now you’re just fucking with us.

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

    Man, the shitty part is that Saunders is only at 69 pitches. That bullpen door isn’t opening any time soon.

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

    Oh and, just to piss off Brazilian Yankee:

    Re: Damon’s ball: Goddamn bad luck. Smoked it.

    Whatever, though. The Yankees offense is kinda struggling with runners on right now but that will just make it all the better when they progress to the norm.

  • http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2008/07/23/rose460.jpg makavelli

    Do you think it’s strange that Giambi hit FAR better while playing 1B than he did DH for the Yankees in the giant sample size over the years he played with them…goes to the Athletics and hits horribly as a 1B/DH for them and gets released…then becomes a full time pinch hitter…and starts raking the ball? He’s batting .400 and clobbering home runs for them. Just a little odd I think anyway.

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

      Meh, just progression to the mean for the Big G.

    • Salty Buggah

      Meh, its AAA… err the NL

    • Chris

      He probably DH’d more on days and in seasons that he wasn’t as healthy. He was very healthy last year and hit well – and was able to play 1B.

      As for his success in Colorado? They’re in the NL and playing in Coors field. That’s practically like playing in a little league game.

      • http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2008/07/23/rose460.jpg makavelli

        You’re probably right…those are good points.

    • Keanu Reeves

      Or it could be playing in a game that means something. Rather than the baseball vacuum that is Oakland.

    • Zack

      clobbering HRs? he has 2, that came back to back games (5 AB).

      • http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2008/07/23/rose460.jpg makavelli

        .400/.591/.867 (1.458) with 2 HR and 11 RBI in 22 plate appearances is certainly clobbering something…
