Even with that last homer, just a tremendous outing for Joba.
kinda new that papi jack was coming…
I Hate Steroid Assisted Homeruns…
we had one earlier this game
A-Rod’s 2 run jog was lovely though wasn’t it?
Bole is not Roids.
Neither are… “supplements,” “Vitamins” or what have you. O_o
and you know what drug ortiz took?
Nope, do you?
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
But we know what Alex took, the fact that we don’t know ortiz’s kind of makes it seem like it was HGH.
except HGH is undetectable in those tests..
which is why he can say what he said.
im not following but im not going to focus on it because we dont agree and we’re not going to
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.
Can’t be a hyprocrite, though. We all enjoyed when our guy jacked one out as well. Still, a very good outing for Joba.
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.
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.
All in all, impressive outing for Joba. 1 bad pitch really took this from great to impressive. He needed this. They needed this.
The one to Martinez wasn’t a good one either. Two isn’t bad by any stretch.
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.
It’s now a 2.5 run lead?
I knew somebody would do that.
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.
Opposite field Papi HR… how often do u say that… sloppy got somejuice aeh..
you can go look on hittracker
wondering how many two out runs Jaba has give up in the last 5 starts. seems like he can’t close out an inning
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!!
exactly. RS are 1-6 with RISP, good pitching
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.
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.
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…
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.
Because you secretly fantasize about Kay in a Playboy bunny outfit serving you drinks with fuzzy lil sizzle sticks?
Bits always get funnier when you spell check them.
Almost had me till you failed. +1 for effort.
Don’t even ask what Kay’s ‘Sizzle Stick’ is.
Oh trust me, I don’t care to find out. What ever it is, I’m sure it’s quite frightening.
Cmon Tex, lets get those 2 back.
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
Why not, young lefty “you hope he is really 21″ that throws 100 mph is a nice piece to add to the team.
It will be a new era when Chapman is signed. No way to compare it.
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.
superb outing from joba
damn good job
Did Kay just give someone’s OPS?
Either that, or he was “putting a bow on it.”
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
Please use the reply button. It makes things easier for everyone.
Varitek is awful.
Haha, nice Damon
but it was nice to see him throw in the mid 90′ds all night.
damon with the steal!
varitek is completely washed up
i love it
damm i would of swore that was gone.
DAMN YOU KAY
Damn, worst call ever
I thought that one was gone.
Bring him home A-rod
Kay, I hate your face.
i hope Kruk writes an article on the shit that they call tek’s arm
Yeah but the team has no weakness except the middle relief.
Tek hasn’t thrown anyone out yet right?
nope yankees are 6/6
5/5…A-rod 3rd SB was a balk, even though he was safe anyway
damn, I forgot Damons
really? gameday, yahoo, fox, espn all have alex with 3 SBs
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.
Arod on fire babii
haha UZR ftw!
Best range EVAH!!
Ellsbury’s UZR = The national debt
Jacoby UZR for the Loss!
Me>>> YOU!! haha
Nice job A-rod!!!!!!
Damn, win stole 2 HRs from our 3-4 hitters there!
Sorry about not holding up that Ortiz shot.
/ Mother Nature’d
Alex wants another 10 RBI game.
Alexander Emmanuel wants that 100 rbi for the year.
Why should missing 6 weeks get in the way?
yeah, i guess so
You think the wonderboy would of caught that huh?
Wow, Ellisbury is so much better than Melky. Really he is….
Gardner would have had that ball.
Love me some run-gettin’-backin’
YSIII is not looking like a band box tonight.
Tex agrees. Ortiz disagrees.
ARod agrees too.
Thought mayb not this yr… but ARod may get another 100 rbi season afterall
JoPo is going DEEP here son.
now this is the michael bowden i know and love
No one gives a shit if you disagree Kay.
Good they gave the SB to Alex.
Oh shit, 7 SBs tonight. A-rod does get his 3rd SB after all! Balk no more
I never knew an official scorer could wield such power.
Ump: “That’s a balk!”
Official Scorer: “Go fuck yourself.”
A-rod got credit for a stolen base!
this is like 1999 A-rod!
Yes!! When he was young and foolish!!!
everything was loosy goosey!
and his cousin went to the DR for Boli!!!
A-Rod has been the best player on the field tonight.
It’s the A-Rod Show-All Alex, all the time.
great base running.
Tek is done and decomposing
the yankees are making varitek look like even worse garbage!
Michael Kay is an a**hole. Just shut up, Michael.
wtf was that thompson?
not his fault. Apparently, Matsui didnt see
Word yeah I saw that on the replay
thompson was holding him up
eh, I don;t know who’s fault that was, but by the time the ball got home Matsui wasn’t even close.
wow, matsui looked helpless in that rundown
What the F did Godzilla just do?
Poor guy really lost his wheels. I still love you Matsui.
Damn, one more run though!
Matsui’s knees just turned to dust. They should let him use a Segway on the base paths.
ietcvm. It wouldn’t matter. With Matsui the segway would get two flat tires or two broken axles.
Well played, Stone. You win this round.
A hoverround would allow him to maneuver around the basepaths more easily.
lol at matsui
who cares, its 8-3!
Rare bonehead play by Matsui.
Why would you get aggressive on the bases with Matsui at THIS point in the season?
dude its matsui’s fault, he refused to see the signal telling him to stop
True, true. I rephrase: “Why would Matsui get aggressive on the bases with Matsui at THIS point in the season?”
oh no, a rift in the clubhouse with veteran players against all the coaches!!
Headline in tommorrow’s John Harper storyline, definitely!
There are . . . maybe 5 players in all of Baseball who don’t score on that hit from 2B.
who am I forgetting?
Pablo Runs Fast.
Just because my Grandmother (a hunchback, no less) speed skates does not mean she’s fast.
to the buffet …
no way Panda makes it home safe.
fast is relative
Prince Fielder, that who I was trying to think of.
Varitek would technically cover the distance, but he’d run the wrong way around the basepaths.
haha i keed
When you have Ben’s light-tower power, who cares how fast you run.
I think even Posada scores on that if someone else hit it.
ooooohhh good one.
cant we just say every catcher? minus russel martin, cervelli, mauer, and thats probably it.
Nah, some have average speed. Most MLB catchers have a certain level of athleticism, they’re not all slow.
I was looking for the slowest guys in the game.
The Molina’s are on their own planet though (not sure about Yadi).
I always wondered how SNYs Gary Cohen would call a HR by him.
Would he say “IT’S YADIER!!!”?
With his bad hip, Mike Lowell is one of the slower players in the game.
There’s also a good chance Manny runs to 1st and then home.
David Ortiz. He’s even slower than Giambi.
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.
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.
wow that’s awesome
kay actually got al to get him a sandy autographed ball lie he always wanted
good outing not a dominant outing…but also a good lineup so can’t complain
Al Leiter is too nice. A koufax signed ball personalized to Kay … damn. nice gift.
They are BFF. Adorable.
Tek knows pop-ups!
Al is a triple shy of the cycle
Let’s hope those hips hold up.
Melancon is warming up? Well, we might see a brawl after all.
Way to be Kay.
Are we sure Tek isn’t on the Yankee payroll?
If he was can we sign him to a 10-year contract, just so he stays on the RS roster until his batting average reaches the negatives?
Well, we couldn’t pull a 10 yr contract but we’ve got that sweet player option to look forward to next year.
Variek is like -12 on outs made tonight.
I heart Varitek
Ace appliances are efficient!
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!
nice lucky u
Oh wow, that’s pretty awesome.
its so awesome! Just go to his website and send him stuff to the river ave address with return shipping!
Damn, son! That’s some sweet loot from the ace.
That’s cool man. Send it to me next year, and I’ll get Brackman to autograph it for you. HAHA!???
Did you ever hear the story about the guy who sent a tape recorder to Bob Shepard, along with $100? He asked Bob to record the names of his wedding party members so he could play it for intros at the reception. As the story goes, a few weeks later the guy got the recording he had asked for in the mail, and the $100 was returned.
wow that is incredible!
i wish i could have him saying my name on tape!
That’s nifty. Bob Shepard FTW.
I really miss Bob.
No Kate Smith? THANK YOU, MO!
I hate 4:00 games. I’ll have to watch Miami beat VT on ESPN 360…
What a beautiful voice. Couldn’t we have that every home game?
ronan tynan flew away after he finished singing with his ears.
He does sort of look like the dancing old man from the Six Flags commercials.
Coincidence! I don’t think Ronan does too much dancing, unfortunately.
He sang with his ears.
haha yea, misplaced or dangling modifier, I get it.
damn nick swisher looks like he needs 5 days off…
Good to see X-Man in the dugout.
Melky, It’s a bad idea to swing at balls above your neck. Why do you keep doing it? WHY?!
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!
He speaks Spanish NOT Bimbo Tardwhorish. Simple communication fail. He probably just saw something shiny at eye level and swung.
Is Al hitting the sauce?
Yep, I saw him once and he really is addicted…..
Just overflowing his steak with A1 Barbeque sauce, it was unbelievable!
Somebody save Al Leiter, he’s drowning.
I have a raging headache
Someone shut Al’s microphone off now please.
Sorry I’m late, fellas. Here, lemme catch up:
1) NAILS KRZYZEWSKI!!!!!!
2) Joba is good at baseball.
We thought we’d never see those words again.
You must always remember to show patience, young padawan.
My favorite was #5. Always and forever… PUSSYTUBING!!
STEAKS AND BLOWJOBS
Damn, you just stole RAB’s game write-up.
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.
“The Yankees got really good jumps. Varitek had tough luck tonight.”
Jon Lester is middle relief now?
glad you’re able to make it to the PLAYOFF PREVIEW
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.
“I have a better idea.”
Kay is such a douche
They’re boozing early in the YES booth.
You should see what’s going on in the CBS Radio booth.
Al sounds like a moron here…
What the hell is Al Leiter saying, this makes zero sense.
What sis Leiter say?
What did Leiter say?
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)!
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.
Believing in jinxes, curses, and hexes is the dominion of the stupid, the weak, and the perennially shitty.
(looks at Boston)
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.
I wonder what the response from Kay and Leiter would be to Mondesi’s playoff proposal plan.
Now they’re just trying to embarrass Varitek. I love it.
Man, Varitek is the sux0r.
THANKS FOR STEALING JETER!
ecks blaming delcarmen for the SB, predictable
Haha, Track meet!!!!
If Kim Jones wears something white on potential clinching day, then she’s asking for a champagne shower.
She could get worse.
Don’t tell Kay that.
Eckersley says the steal was off Delcarmen so Varitek is still good I guess.
Man, Varitek is teh sux0r.
Al triple plz!!!
Bandbox my ass !!!!!
Bring them home A-rod
Bout time Tex joined in. He’s been creaming the ball, and had nothing to show for it.
Tex has been riping the cover off the ball tonight.
I wanna Tex you up.
can i see a Tex SB? thanks
Delcarmen wants NONE of ARod. NONE.
Anyone else kind of down on Aroldis Chapman? What kind of contract would you offer him?
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.
How can you be down on a 21 yr old lefty with nasty stuff?
No I think he meant like, are you cool with it? Get with the times, Drew.
on second thought, maybe he didnt
lol it’s tough to tell.
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?
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.
$20,000,000 and a speed boat captained by Sonny Crockett to get his family out of Cuba.
I like this idea.
Wasn’t part of the deal with El Duque that the Yanks would help get his family into the states?
What kind of contract would you offer him?
I’ll give him 60 million, and Kei Igawa as his personal valet.
I’ll give him 60 million, and Kei Igawa as his personal valet runner.
I’ll give him 60 million, and Kei Igawa as his professional hot dog eater.
The Yankees better destroy Byrd on Sunday.
Usually the Eck is pretty good, but he hasn’t blamed Cap’n Tek for a single steal tonight.
that would be rubbing it in? GTFOutta here
who cares? It’s Boston, it’s war.
I need a Red Bull.
Grand salami (no homo)?
It’s a little sad that you felt the need to say “No homo”.
I’m a sad man. I make no illusions.
And seriously, by weight, I’d bet I’ve had more pussy than you. By weight.
RUB IT IN!
Stad-padding hit for Tex, stat-padding walk for Alex, stat-padding Slamma-lama-ding-dong by Hideki?
4 Blondes have apparently left…
In a related note, my doorbell just rang
Just make sure its not Pat (Im kidding Pat…kinda)
They were more interested in being seen on TV than in watching the game.
Goodbye, leggy blondes.
Albaladeajraorejo must lead the league in leadoff walks… what an idiot.
This is tortue… he have to take Alby out… he NEVER throws strikes
I wish K-Rob was available..
word, only ten games left. Hopefully he comes back killing it vs. KC.
“What’s the big picture between Michigan and Notre Dame”?
Wouldn’t that be North Dakota? MI is Michigan the state, Michigan the university would be UM.
Andy in Sunny Daytona TEH EPIC FAIL!!!!!!
Me too. This would have been a good spot to put him in. Alby is going to walk the ballpark
boy he hasn’t given the high strike all game
Poor Melancon must have killed Girardi’s dog. Even Johnny Alphabet gets more chances than him.
There’s a good chance one of Melancon’s pitches end up hitting the 3rd base coach.
Tonights ESPN potential headline:
“Papi’s Power Surge continues, Boston loses close one.”
You forgot: “Joba fails to make it into 7th inning, continues to struggle”
“Yankees manage to subdue the best team in baseball.”
Or “Sox Out Homer Yanks But Lose Close One”
Did you see the headline on ESPN the other day? Papi hit a 3-run HR while Boston was up 6-2 in the ninth and the headline said “Ortiz helps Boston win another game.”
Something like that. It was hilarious.
“Lester dominates early, but leaves with injury”
“Red Sox begin setting up dominant playoff rotation, pull Lester early for rest purposes”
Blind Squirrel Yankees find a nut against flawless Sox.
Special Report ahead—Gammons: Did Yankees tamper with the bases, pushing them further away from the plate leading to the stolen bases?
“Boston maintains lead in WC race. Lester okay after assault.”
To be fair, that’s a belt-high fastball for everyone else.
YEAH, ALBY, KILL THAT LITTLE PUNK LEPRECHAUN!!!!
OK, that was completely unnecessary…just like most of his dives
Sit down midget.
Someone tell the squirrel to shut the hell up
That ball getting away was just rubbing it into the Sox.
Kay put that out there before the game. No one can actually like Kay.
I want someone to start a “Fire Michael Kay” website. I’ll be the first member.
Haha…I loved the sign.
I like Kay.
I like Kay, but maybe I should hide from all the virtual beer bottles that people in here will throw.
Man, those Kay and Leiter signs sucked. What kind of crappy second-rate OAKTAG was that?
They didn’t even punctuate the exclamation point very well. It looked like the Leiter sign said “And Leiter Tool”
wow you never hear pastadivingtex
Alby again making a blowout a disaster…
How is this a disaster?
Lighten up, Francis.
good lord alby is terrible
please put someone else in here?
It’s a six run lead. Let him soak up some meaningless innings.
Who is everybody’s least favorite Sox player?
Papelschmuck – by far!
Youkilis. And it’s not close. But I don’t care for Papelbon or Varitek either.
what about Beckett?
Oh and I forgot David Ortiz talking about how players should be suspended for the season for testing positive. And Beckett for looking like a devil and thinking he’s a badass.
I hate that I’ve defended him this year but he said from here on out. Not a retro-active deal.
Papi or Youk, the midget doesn’t really bother me.
It’s a tie b/w pap and youk. Their first base coach is up there too.
papsmear and youk is a toss up the douche factor runs high with them but I can’t forget the pipsqueak at 2nd either
Look at the arm on Damon!
What a jackass…Damon.
Alby is just brutal. Make him wear a dunce cap.
Gardner gritted stolen bases to come back into fashion so he could impress the ladies.
This is a DISASTER. TAKE ALBY OUT HOLY COW PLEASEEEEEE
This is not a disaster. EVERYBODY PANIC!
DOGS AND CATS, LIVING TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!
Dude, it’s gonna be alright.
Stop hurting our run differential Alb-asshole
take alby out please?
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.
I wonder if Pittburgh takes Alby. I bet he’d dominate in the NL.
Damn, I hope Pujols is fine.
Is Albie ever going to get it together?
Damaso Marte: Best reliever with a 10+ ERA ever? I say yes.
Did Ortiz just get an infield single? No way that just happened.
Yea it really wasn’t that softly hit either. Fat/roid man was bustin it
Fielder’s choice bro.
I didn’t think Big Papi could move that fast.
damn i forgot ortiz can run if he wants
wow phil hughes?
So what are the chances that Albaladejo is released or nontendered (what the hell does this even mean) this offseason?
