    kinda new that papi jack was coming…

  • JSquared

    I Hate Steroid Assisted Homeruns…

    • Zack

      we had one earlier this game ;)

    • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

      A-Rod’s 2 run jog was lovely though wasn’t it?

      • JSquared

        Bole is not Roids.

        • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

          Neither are… “supplements,” “Vitamins” or what have you. O_o

        • Zack

          and you know what drug ortiz took?

          • JSquared

            Nope, do you?

            • Zack

              Nope. dont act like Alex and Ortiz are different. i dont care about natural ability or who was what first, they both failed steroid tests, end of story

              • JSquared

                But we know what Alex took, the fact that we don’t know ortiz’s kind of makes it seem like it was HGH.

                • Zack

                  except HGH is undetectable in those tests..

                • JSquared

                  which is why he can say what he said.

                • Zack

                  im not following but im not going to focus on it because we dont agree and we’re not going to

              • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

                Lets look at it this way. At least they were trying to get better and not trying to dump a game, season, series for bookies. I.E. Black Sox. This steroid argument is a tired debate.

    • PinstripesForeverDougie

      Can’t be a hyprocrite, though. We all enjoyed when our guy jacked one out as well. Still, a very good outing for Joba.

      • JSquared

        I’m pretty sure even if A-Rod was taking them in his Texas years, Papi was taking them more recently, and he is almost a guarantee, A-Rod can probably still do what he did in 2004, Papi can not.

        • PinstripesForeverDougie

          I know, I know. Just saying we should never be almighty and judgemental like those Red Sox fans against us all these years. Competely agree, Alex is more believable whenever he hits one.

  • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

    All in all, impressive outing for Joba. 1 bad pitch really took this from great to impressive. He needed this. They needed this.

    • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

      Agreed.

    • JMK

      The one to Martinez wasn’t a good one either. Two isn’t bad by any stretch.

      • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

        Well the reason I say one is because that one to Sloppy changed the feeling of the game, cut a five run lead in half.

        • Steve H

          It’s now a 2.5 run lead?

          • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

            I knew somebody would do that.

  • Bob Stone

    Nice outing by Joba. He was great except for the two home runs. Very encouraging. Let’s hope he keeps it up in his next start in KC. We are going to need him in tthe ALCS and WS.

  • nathan

    Opposite field Papi HR… how often do u say that… sloppy got somejuice aeh..

    • whozat

      you can go look on hittracker :-)

  • sal

    wondering how many two out runs Jaba has give up in the last 5 starts. seems like he can’t close out an inning

    • PinstripesForeverDougie

      Ummm, sal. C’mere…. Did you see the freakin last inning?!?!?! He got out of men on second and third with nobody out without giving up any runs!!

      • Zack

        exactly. RS are 1-6 with RISP, good pitching

  • http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/riddering/Baseball/reachforthestaaaaars.jpg Riddering

    I agree. That jack from Ortiz will bring on the haters and critics but Joba had an excellent comeback tonight. He worked 1-2-3 innings and he worked out of pressure situations.

    This week has really done wonders for confidence in the Yankee pitching.

    • Bob Stone

      Totally agree.

    • PinstripesForeverDougie

      Absolutely!!

    • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

      John Kruk will be forced to write another head scratching blog. Hint to Kruk: If your television analysis sucks, don’t put it into words.

    • nathan

      Leave it to PeteAbe for analysis

      “UPDATE, 9:33 p.m.: Joba had a chance to end his night on a real positive, then Ortiz homered. But it’s still a quality start and he hasn’t had one of those in a while. Have to start someplace.”

      i wud like Joba to park ithere.. not start here… a QS from ur #4 is pretty good…

  • Zack

    STEAL!

  • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

    Cmon Tex, lets get those 2 back.

  • james

    What do you think the odds are of us signing Chapman. I would love to add an arm like that to our system .All it costs the Yankees is money, and the Steinbrenners have lots of it. I dont want to see him in a Sox jersey

    • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

      Why not, young lefty “you hope he is really 21″ that throws 100 mph is a nice piece to add to the team.

    • JMK

      It will be a new era when Chapman is signed. No way to compare it.

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

      Depends on what the Yanks really think of him. His upside is huge, but he’s very, very raw. If they think he’s easily fixed, they’ll break the bank. If not, they may pass.

      He’s very tantalizing, but I wouldn’t go nuts either way. He’s more likely to be a bust than a success. Very wild, very raw.

  • Dela G

    superb outing from joba

    damn good job

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

    Did Kay just give someone’s OPS?

    • http://thesportsshowlive.blogspot.com/ Joey H

      Either that, or he was “putting a bow on it.”

  • sal

    Yes I saw that, but he gave up 3 runs all with two outs. I think in his last start he did the same thing , got two outs and gave up 3 or more runs

    • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

      Yeah but the team has no weakness except the middle relief.

  • Souter Fell

    Tek hasn’t thrown anyone out yet right?

    • Zack

      nope yankees are 6/6

      • Salty Buggah

        5/5…A-rod 3rd SB was a balk, even though he was safe anyway

        • Salty Buggah

          damn, I forgot Damons

        • Zack

          really? gameday, yahoo, fox, espn all have alex with 3 SBs

    Oh shit, 7 SBs tonight. A-rod does get his 3rd SB after all! Balk no more

    • Pasqua

      Ump: “That’s a balk!”
      Official Scorer: “Go fuck yourself.”

  • Dela G

    excellent

      not his fault. Apparently, Matsui didnt see

      • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

        Word yeah I saw that on the replay

    • Dela G

      thompson was holding him up

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      eh, I don;t know who’s fault that was, but by the time the ball got home Matsui wasn’t even close.

  • Zack

    wow, matsui looked helpless in that rundown

  • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

    What the F did Godzilla just do?

    • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

      Poor guy really lost his wheels. I still love you Matsui.

  • Salty Buggah

    Damn, one more run though!

  • JMK

    Matsui’s knees just turned to dust. They should let him use a Segway on the base paths.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      hahaha

    • Bob Stone

      ietcvm. It wouldn’t matter. With Matsui the segway would get two flat tires or two broken axles.

      • JMK

        Well played, Stone. You win this round.

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      A hoverround would allow him to maneuver around the basepaths more easily.

    • PinstripesForeverDougie

      LoL !!

  • Dela G

    lol at matsui

    who cares, its 8-3!

  • Bob Stone

    Rare bonehead play by Matsui.

  • Pasqua

    Why would you get aggressive on the bases with Matsui at THIS point in the season?

    • Dela G

      dude its matsui’s fault, he refused to see the signal telling him to stop

      • Pasqua

        True, true. I rephrase: “Why would Matsui get aggressive on the bases with Matsui at THIS point in the season?”

      • Zack

        oh no, a rift in the clubhouse with veteran players against all the coaches!!

      Paul Konerko

    • http://www.onedayonejob.com/ Willy

      Dunn definitely scores. Even if he’s rounding second when the catcher gets the ball, he’ll still plow through him and knock the ball loose.

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

        No, there’s still plenty of room to ridicule Gammons, Stark, and Kruk for their slob-jobs of the Red Sox ridiculous pitching depth and the early demise of Young Mr. Chamberlain.

        The Red Sox have no weaknesses. NONE.

        Naw, this isn’t a playoff preview. We’re winning it. We only lose playoff previews.

        This game means nothing, unless we lose it, in which case it means everything.

  • Pasqua

    I know this was debated on the site in an earlier post, but why are so many people in baseball hellbent on “punishing” the Wild Card team? For pete’s sake, the WC team is sometimes better than an actual division winner (see: Red Sox v. Tigers)!

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

    The only thing sad about this win:

    We’re not going to have time to appreciate Lou Gehrig as #4 on the Magic Number Countdown, since we’ll go right past Joe DiMaggio straight into Babe Ruth. That’s a bit of a shame.

        (looks at Boston)

  • bonestock94

    I think what he’s trying to say is that you have 2 wild cards. The two wild card teams play a 3 game series over a weekend and then they go right into the 5 game series. Leiter is saying that would create incentive to win the division since you’ll be exhausted going into playing the division winner.

  • Dela G

    STEAL AGAIN!

  • JMK

    I wonder what the response from Kay and Leiter would be to Mondesi’s playoff proposal plan.

    Anyone else kind of down on Aroldis Chapman? What kind of contract would you offer him?

    • Steve H

      Kind of down on him? Based on what?

      I’d offer him a TON of money. If he doesn’t work out, it’s only money.

      He’s a 21 year old LHP who throws 100, worth the risk.

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      • Salty Buggah

        No I think he meant like, are you cool with it? Get with the times, Drew. ;)

        • Salty Buggah

          on second thought, maybe he didnt

          • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

            lol it’s tough to tell.

            • aj

              No, meaning he’s never pitched a day in the major leagues and who knows if he’ll be Jose COntreras or El Duque. The question was more how much would you be willing to offer him?

              • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

                He’s young with a great arm.

                Strasburg got 15 but it wasn’t in the free market.

                I’d say he’ll get b/w 25-40 mil. I’d be willing to (not that it’s my money) give him 40+ mil, no doubt.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      $20,000,000 and a speed boat captained by Sonny Crockett to get his family out of Cuba.

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