  1. Will says:

    kinda new that papi jack was coming…

  2. JSquared says:

    I Hate Steroid Assisted Homeruns…

  3. Joey H says:

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

  4. Bob Stone says:

    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.

  5. nathan says:

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

  6. sal says:

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

  7. Riddering says:

    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 says:

      Totally agree.

    • PinstripesForeverDougie says:


    • Joey H says:

      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 says:

      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…

  8. Joey H says:

    The next time Kay says, “Put a bow on it” I say we force him to put on a big pink bow and bunny ears. Why bunny ears? Don’t ask.

  9. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Cmon Tex, lets get those 2 back.

  10. james says:

    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" says:

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

    • JMK says:

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

    • The Artist says:

      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.

  11. Dela G says:

    superb outing from joba

    damn good job

  12. The Artist says:

    Did Kay just give someone’s OPS?

  13. sal says:

    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

  14. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Varitek is awful.

  15. Salty Buggah says:

    Haha, nice Damon

  16. sal says:

    but it was nice to see him throw in the mid 90′ds all night.

  17. Dela G says:

    damon with the steal!

    varitek is completely washed up

    i love it

  18. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    damm i would of swore that was gone.

  19. Dela G says:



  20. bonestock94 says:

    Damn, worst call ever

  21. Riddering says:

    I thought that one was gone.

  22. Salty Buggah says:

    fuckin Kay…

    Bring him home A-rod

  23. Drew says:

    Kay, I hate your face.

  24. Zack says:

    i hope Kruk writes an article on the shit that they call tek’s arm

  25. Souter Fell says:

    Tek hasn’t thrown anyone out yet right?

  26. PinstripesForeverDougie says:

    I REALLLY Hate whenever Kay speaks. At this point, I knew it wasn’t going out because that idiot was bloviating like that!! You really suck, Kay.

  27. JSquared says:


  28. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Arod on fire babii

  29. Souter Fell says:


  30. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    Best range EVAH!!

  31. JMK says:

    Ellsbury’s UZR = The national debt

  32. Dela G says:

    Jacoby UZR for the Loss!

  33. Salty Buggah says:

    Nice job A-rod!!!!!!

    Damn, win stole 2 HRs from our 3-4 hitters there!

  34. Riddering says:

    Alex wants another 10 RBI game.

  35. Frankie says:

    Alexander Emmanuel wants that 100 rbi for the year.

  36. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    You think the wonderboy would of caught that huh?

  37. PinstripesForeverDougie says:

    Wow, Ellisbury is so much better than Melky. Really he is….



  38. Pasqua says:

    Love me some run-gettin’-backin’

  39. Bob Stone says:

    YSIII is not looking like a band box tonight.

  40. Drew says:

    double steal!!!

  41. nathan says:

    Thought mayb not this yr… but ARod may get another 100 rbi season afterall

  42. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    JoPo is going DEEP here son.

  43. Dela G says:

    now this is the michael bowden i know and love

  44. Drew says:

    No one gives a shit if you disagree Kay.

  45. Bob Stone says:

    Good they gave the SB to Alex.

  46. Salty Buggah says:

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

    • Pasqua says:

      I never knew an official scorer could wield such power.

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

  47. Dela G says:


    A-rod got credit for a stolen base!

    3 SB!

    this is like 1999 A-rod!

  48. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    great base running.

  49. Souter Fell says:

    Tek is done and decomposing

  50. Will says:

    ARod 4
    Tek -5

  51. Dela G says:


    the yankees are making varitek look like even worse garbage!

  52. wilcymoore says:

    Michael Kay is an a**hole. Just shut up, Michael.

  53. Drew says:

    wtf was that thompson?

  54. Zack says:

    wow, matsui looked helpless in that rundown

  55. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    What the F did Godzilla just do?

  56. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn, one more run though!

  57. JMK says:

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

  58. Dela G says:

    lol at matsui

    who cares, its 8-3!

  59. Bob Stone says:

    Rare bonehead play by Matsui.

  60. Pasqua says:

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

  61. The Artist says:

    There are . . . maybe 5 players in all of Baseball who don’t score on that hit from 2B.

    Hideki Matsui
    Jose Molina
    Jason Giambi
    Adam Dunn

    who am I forgetting?

  62. JMK says:

    So I guess Kruk was right after all…Maybe with this new-found luck he’ll find someone to live with him that isn’t an armed robber.

  63. Dela G says:

    wow that’s awesome

    kay actually got al to get him a sandy autographed ball lie he always wanted

  64. Nick says:

    good outing not a dominant outing…but also a good lineup so can’t complain

  65. Reggie C. says:

    Al Leiter is too nice. A koufax signed ball personalized to Kay … damn. nice gift.

  66. Riddering says:

    Tek knows pop-ups!

  67. Drew says:

    Al is a triple shy of the cycle

  68. JMK says:

    Melancon is warming up? Well, we might see a brawl after all.

  69. Riddering says:

    Are we sure Tek isn’t on the Yankee payroll?

  70. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    Variek is like -12 on outs made tonight.

  71. Salty Buggah says:

    I heart Varitek

  72. JMK says:

    Ace appliances are efficient!

  73. Dela G says:

    Holy cow! I just checked my mailbox, and i got an autographed ball from CC sabathia sent back to me. I had mailed it to him via mail with return shipping and a box to put it in back in early august and he has him, AJ Burnett and what looks like david robertson’s autograph on the ball

    you guys have got to send him stuff, he actually delivers!

  74. JMK says:

    No Kate Smith? THANK YOU, MO!

  75. Drew says:

    I hate 4:00 games. I’ll have to watch Miami beat VT on ESPN 360…

  76. JMK says:

    What a beautiful voice. Couldn’t we have that every home game?

  77. Esteban says:

    ronan tynan flew away after he finished singing with his ears.

  78. Dela G says:

    damn nick swisher looks like he needs 5 days off…

  79. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    Good to see X-Man in the dugout.

  80. JMK says:

    Melky, It’s a bad idea to swing at balls above your neck. Why do you keep doing it? WHY?!

    • PinstripesForeverDougie says:

      I think Mary Carey is tweeting him dirty messages and is begging him to score a Homer off her. Hey, I wouldn’t blame Leche if that’s the case!

      • JMK says:

        He speaks Spanish NOT Bimbo Tardwhorish. Simple communication fail. He probably just saw something shiny at eye level and swung.

  81. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Is Al hitting the sauce?

    • PinstripesForeverDougie says:

      Yep, I saw him once and he really is addicted…..

      Just overflowing his steak with A1 Barbeque sauce, it was unbelievable!

  82. The Artist says:

    Somebody save Al Leiter, he’s drowning.

  83. bonestock94 says:

    I have a raging headache

  84. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Someone shut Al’s microphone off now please.

  85. Sorry I’m late, fellas. Here, lemme catch up:

    2) Joba is good at baseball.
    3) Varitekian.
    5) PUSSYTUBING!!!!!!!!

  86. Drew says:

    “I have a better idea.”

    Kay is such a douche

  87. JMK says:

    They’re boozing early in the YES booth.

  88. Dela G says:

    Al sounds like a moron here…

  89. chriskeo says:

    What the hell is Al Leiter saying, this makes zero sense.

  90. nathan says:

    What sis Leiter say?

  91. nathan says:

    What did Leiter say?

  92. Dela G says:


  93. Pasqua says:

    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)!

  94. 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.

  95. bonestock94 says:

    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.

  96. Dela G says:


  97. JMK says:

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

  98. Mike Axisa says:

    Now they’re just trying to embarrass Varitek. I love it.

  99. Frankie says:

    Man, Varitek is the sux0r.

  100. Dela G says:


  101. Zack says:

    ecks blaming delcarmen for the SB, predictable

  102. Salty Buggah says:

    Haha, Track meet!!!!

  103. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    If Kim Jones wears something white on potential clinching day, then she’s asking for a champagne shower.

  104. Bob Stone says:

    Eckersley says the steal was off Delcarmen so Varitek is still good I guess.

  105. Frankie says:

    Man, Varitek is teh sux0r.

  106. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:


  107. Drew says:

    Al triple plz!!!

  108. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Bandbox my ass !!!!!

  109. Salty Buggah says:

    Bring them home A-rod

  110. Dela G says:



  111. The Artist says:

    Bout time Tex joined in. He’s been creaming the ball, and had nothing to show for it.

  112. Bob Stone says:

    Tex has been riping the cover off the ball tonight.

  113. Zack says:

    can i see a Tex SB? thanks

  114. aj says:

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

  115. Steve H says:

    Usually the Eck is pretty good, but he hasn’t blamed Cap’n Tek for a single steal tonight.

  116. Drew says:

    that would be rubbing it in? GTFOutta here

  117. Keanu Reeves says:

    I need a Red Bull.

  118. JMK says:

    Grand salami (no homo)?

  119. Dela G says:

    mon HITDEKI

    RUB IT IN!

  120. Salty Buggah says:

    Stad-padding hit for Tex, stat-padding walk for Alex, stat-padding Slamma-lama-ding-dong by Hideki?

  121. Jack says:

    Triple steal!

  122. Salty Buggah says:

    4 Blondes have apparently left… :(

  123. Russell NY says:

    Albaladeajraorejo must lead the league in leadoff walks… what an idiot.

  124. Russell NY says:

    This is tortue… he have to take Alby out… he NEVER throws strikes

  125. Drew says:

    I wish K-Rob was available..

  126. Dela G says:

    boy he hasn’t given the high strike all game

  127. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Poor Melancon must have killed Girardi’s dog. Even Johnny Alphabet gets more chances than him.

  128. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    Tonights ESPN potential headline:

    “Papi’s Power Surge continues, Boston loses close one.”

  129. Will says:

    To be fair, that’s a belt-high fastball for everyone else.



  131. Salty Buggah says:

    OK, that was completely unnecessary…just like most of his dives

  132. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Sit down midget.

  133. bonestock94 says:

    Someone tell the squirrel to shut the hell up

  134. Riddering says:

    That ball getting away was just rubbing it into the Sox.

    V. unsportsmanlike.

  135. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Kay put that out there before the game. No one can actually like Kay.

  136. Man, those Kay and Leiter signs sucked. What kind of crappy second-rate OAKTAG was that?

    • Russell NY says:

      They didn’t even punctuate the exclamation point very well. It looked like the Leiter sign said “And Leiter Tool”

  137. Dela G says:

    wow you never hear pastadivingtex

  138. Russell NY says:

    Alby again making a blowout a disaster…

  139. Dela G says:

    good lord alby is terrible

    please put someone else in here?

  140. Esteban says:

    Who is everybody’s least favorite Sox player?

  141. JMK says:

    Look at the arm on Damon!

  142. aj says:

    What a jackass…Damon.

  143. Keanu Reeves says:

    Alby is just brutal. Make him wear a dunce cap.

  144. Riddering says:

    Gardner gritted stolen bases to come back into fashion so he could impress the ladies.

  145. Russell NY says:


  146. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Stop hurting our run differential Alb-asshole

  147. Dela G says:

    take alby out please?

  148. Russell NY says:

    After watching Alby for the last 2 years its safe to say this guy has no future with our team. He walks the leadoff batter every other game, blowouts or not. It’s embarrassing when you suck so much.

  149. Salty Buggah says:

    I wonder if Pittburgh takes Alby. I bet he’d dominate in the NL.

  150. Riddering says:

    Damn, I hope Pujols is fine.

  151. ansky says:

    Is Albie ever going to get it together?

  152. Damaso Marte: Best reliever with a 10+ ERA ever? I say yes.

  153. Russell NY says:

    Hughes? Fine.

  154. JMK says:

    Did Ortiz just get an infield single? No way that just happened.

  155. Riddering says:


  156. Bob Stone says:

    I didn’t think Big Papi could move that fast.

  157. Dela G says:

    damn i forgot ortiz can run if he wants

    wow phil hughes?

  158. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    So what are the chances that Albaladejo is released or nontendered (what the hell does this even mean) this offseason?
