    anyone still clamoring for molina to get playoff starts after watching his masterful at-bats this week is insane and should be committed to a mental hospital.

    • Zack

      yeah but the whole staff hates pitching to posada, and i mean the WHOLE staff- veterans, rookies, even mitre doesnt like poasda.

      • JMK

        Even Swisher.

        • Tom Zig

          Nick Swisher once made Jorge smile.

            Jorge then killed Swisher’s dog.

        • pete

          no, people misinterpreted swisher’s comments. It’s not that he doesn’t like pitching to Posada specifically as much as he just prefers to be his own catcher, bugs bunny-style

    • Nigel Incubator-Jones

      Put it this way. If the Yankees don’t win the world series this year, it will NOT be because Molina didn’t start some games.

    • MikeD

      Molina is a good-fielding, no-hit catcher, a role that Cervelli can fill, and offer the potential to hit better, and do it for the MLB minimum.

      Unfortunately, that won’t happen until next season. Molina will be on the playoff roster and Franco will not.

      • http://www.teamnerdrage.com leokitty

        Cervelli shouldn’t start playoff games either.

    I don’t know if any of you guys saw this or remember this, but throughout 2007 and 2008, when an ESPN co-worker (whether it be by a BBTN host or SC host) asked Peter Gammons, “Who is going to be manning shortsop for the Red Sox this year and the years to come?” Peter Gammons would always say, “Well, the Red Sox have this young shortsop they drafted out of college that goes by the name of Jed Lowrie, and according to scouts all around baseball they say he’s got some of the best all around hands in all of the minors, and has a bat that will develop into one of the better shortsop bats in the majors in the sometime near future, which is part of the reason that they were willing to throw in Hanley Ramirez in the deal for Beckett the same offseason that they drafted Lowrie”… Then, after the 2008 ALCS Series loss to Tampa Bay, when asked, what went wrong for the Red Sox… Peter Gammons went on to reply, “(after talking about how the Rays pitching outmatched the Sawx’ and the Rays’ timely hitting, he went on to say), Also, top prospect Jed Lowie was not his usual self at the plate after his wrist injury that had sidelined him for a while”… Later on in the interview, he was asked about the Sawx’ 2009 season outlook, he replied “(of course, after talking about their rotation with the potential of being one of the deepest and all around greatest rotations with Beckett, Lester, Dice-K, and Wakefield already booked for ’09, and their incredibly deep and potent lineup he went on to ramble about Lowrie once again… ), stating that next year (2009) without even making any moves, the Sawx lineup would already be that much deeper with the addition of a full season of a healthy Jed Lowrie at shortstop to just make all the other organizations in baseball in even more awe of the Sawx farm system the past few years with Ellsbury, Lester, Youk, Papelbon, and now Lowrie who has the potential to be one of the best of that group, if not the best…

        Agree with Whitey here. People jump to conclusions quick, we preach patience with our prospects, we should give the same benefit to the Sox and their fans. Even though their fans, Whitey included, have trouble remembering to shower, brush their teeth, and wipe when supposed to. ;)

        I remember many jumping on Buchholz when he struggled this year, look at him now, the dude has pitched as good as anybody. Except CC !

        • Lefty

          Yea, but look up who he’s pitched against… Of his 7 wins, only 1 has been against a team over .500, and that was a Tampa Bay team that has been fading horribly, which was when he got the win against them, was right when they were starting to fade horribly…

          • Whitey14

            Lefty, do you get upset when one of your pitchers beats a poor team? Doubtful, as they’re supposed to beat those teams and doing so, especially for a younger pitcher, helps build confidence. How many wins does CC have against poor teams and should those wins count any less towards his 19?

        • Whitey14

          Damn Mike! I shower once a week, whether I need it or not! ;-)

  • http://kikojones5.blogspot.com Kiko Jones

    I really thought Cervelli would be catching today; I truly respect Molina’s defensive skills–Martinez and Crapitek combined cannot equal him–but when he’s in the lineup you might as well let the pitcher hit 9th. Especially if it’s CC. But I guess it’s politics: Girardi doesn’t want to show up his backup C by playing the rookie in an important game against the Sux. If you’re willing to live with the lack of production that decision carries with it, well, then…

    How in heaven’s name do you swing at the first pitch, A-Rod and Matsui, when Dice-K has walked the previous 2 hitters to load the bases? If Billy Martin were still around he’d fine them both and deservedly so.

    This game should be at least 6-0, instead the Yankee hitters have made Dice-K look good by not hitting in the clutch. (Thank goodness for Robbie’s HR.) Jeez…

    • Nigel Incubator-Jones

      I was going to use this as a pro DH bit about how CC’s OPS+ is worse that Molina’s.

      I was wrong
      Sabathia – 72 = really bad
      Molina – 60 = really, really bad.

      Yanks win it 2009 and that would make it 2 Championships and 4 Pennants in the 2000s. We finish the decade with a World Title and chalk up another decade to the Yankees.

    The Red Sox better hope and pray that tomorrow nights game does not get out of hand and Joe puts in Melancon.

  • Tom Zig

    what the shit is this

    • whozat

      Joe’s getting cute.

  • Jersey

    No Posada here?

    • http://kikojones5.blogspot.com Kiko Jones

      Exactly! WTF??!!!

      • Jersey

        He has a sore neck. I totally forgot.

  • Lefty

    Eh… Wagner you’re going to have to do better than that… My man Melky eats those…

  • http://www.teamnerdrage.com leokitty

    why is jose molina hitting for himself :(

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    steal home gardner

  • Rey22

    Why are we not pinch hitting again?

  • Nigel Incubator-Jones

    Molina is hitting?

    I posted way above.

    CC career OPS+ = 72
    Molina career OPS+ = 60

    • Nigel Incubator-Jones

      /now out of context, looks a little silly.

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    Oh really? He’s tagged?

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

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    This Sox team has no weaknesses. NONE.

    • JMK

      Heady team. Awesome defense, too.

    • Lefty

      Was there ever any doubt about it?

  • Salty Buggah

    HAHA! Boston FAIL!

  • UWS

    What just happened?

  • Bob Stone

    That was weird.

  • Mouch “half man half couch”

    EPIC FAILURE BY THE SAWX !!!

  • Riddering

    I love me some Gardner.

  • Lefty

    although he ended up being safe… dammit Gardner! wtf are you doing? If you’re going to attempt to take home you can’t f-in hesitate like that!

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

      Agreed. That was almost Justin Christian-like.

      • Tom Zig

        that reminds me of when JC fell down while trying to steal

      • Lefty

        lol… you’re not alone… I was starting to get flashbacks…

  • Tom Zig

    nice try with the phantom tag

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

      I would have called him out anyway.

      Sincerely,
      Marty Foster

      • Lefty

        he doesn’t have to tag him… as long as the ball gets there first…

  • crapulent

    What happened?

  • Zack

    atleast molina can GIDP now?

    • Tom Zig

      he’ll try though

  • Don

    Molina is plain useless. Why Cervelli isnt up to lay down the bunt is beyond me.

    • whozat

      Hey, he has the last home run at old Yankee stadium!

      • Don

        That and a metro card gets you on the subway.

      • Zack

        that’s going to be a trivia question for the next 50 years

        • Don

          Well he gets the honor of being remembered for that and the least talented of the 3 Molinas.

  • crapulent

    I walked out of the room, what happened?

  • whozat

    Why does Wagner hate Molina’s back foot so much?

  • Don

    Wagner is pulling a K-Rod vs. Mo.

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    Keep throwing that shit it the dirt.

  • Zack

    so happy we didnt trade for wagner :)

  • Salty Buggah

    Wow, Wagner sucks! You cant walk Molina when he’s trying to bunt!

    • whozat

      But he turns it into a 6 inning game!!!!

  • Jersey

    GOOD EYE, Jose. Let’s go JETES

  • whozat

    Dude, now Jeter is just going to GIDP on the first pitch…

    • crapulent

      Keep those happy thoughts coming.

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

    Q: What’s the only thing more embarrassing than failing to get Gardner in that rundown?

    A: Walking Jose Molina.

    • Tom Zig

      whats with Mets closers and former closers walking people who are incapable of being walked

    • whozat

      What about walking Mariano Rivera to force in a run?

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

        Non-Mets Division

    • Salty Buggah

      Walking Jose Molina when he was trying to freakin bunt! That’s worse

    • http://kikojones5.blogspot.com Kiko Jones

      Awesome, TSJC! Ha!

  • Nigel Incubator-Jones

    I can usually think of a reason for a move or non-move, but I can’t think of one valid reason to not pinch hit there.

    He walked, but still.

    • whozat

      Cuz Joe just doesn’t care about this game enough to get off the bench?

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

        He’s probably got those glasses on where it looks like your eyes are open, but you’re actually sleeping.

      • Nigel Incubator-Jones

        I’ll accept that.

  • uncle stevie

    Penny ,Smoltz, Baldelli, Wagner…..Theo IS a genius

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    Ball.

  • Lefty

    and Wagner is just making his case that he is what was going to bring this team over the hump, just by adding his presence, let alone being the dominant lefty that he is…

    • crapulent

      He’s still got that old Mets magic dust on him.

    • Mike Pop

      Give me a break, in his short time with Boston he has been effective.

      • DreDog

        Above all, he will net the Sawx 2 draft picks. That really p*sses me off.

      • Whitey14

        Mike is correct…again…WTF is going on tonight Mike? We continue to agree and they’ll ban you for aidin’ and abettin’

  • Mike Pop

    Come on Jete

  • Tom Zig

    Closer of the future!

    He is from the space age!

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    Please bring in Bard.

  • Don

    Cant locate the slider.

  • Zack

    damn jeter

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

    Damn Jetes.

  • Don

    but that fastball worked.

  • Salty Buggah

    Damnit Jeter

  • Accent Shallow

    Wow, no one is buying the slider from Wagner at all.

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    I would argue that Wagner didn’t throw a strike that entire at-bat.

  • acb

    FINALLYYYYY

  • Mike Pop

    JD!

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

    Johnny D’s in the house.

  • Salty Buggah

    DAMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bob Stone

    Beautiful

  • JMK

    Plus, if it stays like this we can give Mo a save opportunity.

    • Jersey

      Or Mitre. Money!

    • Bob Stone

      Screw the Save – Let’s score some more runs!

  • Riddering

    Jonny gets some.

    WHOOOOOOOOOO.

  • Zack

    damon always gets the job done

    • Bob Stone

      It’s even sweeter when he does it to the Sawx ’cause they let him walk.

  • Nigel Incubator-Jones

    Ah, I see. Girardi knew Molina would walk, Jeter would K, and JD would get a hit. Makes sense now.

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    Welcome back Mr. Bard! We’ve been expecting you.

    • JMK

      Dun dun dun.

  • uncle stevie

    we can always count on Billy Bad ass

  • Lefty

    he’s got to sift fastball here… no way he is throwing anything else

  • Lefty

    he’s got to sift fastball here… no way he is throwing anything else

  • Salty Buggah

    I hope Tex breaks Bard again

  • Tom Zig

    i feel more comfortable with a 3 run led than a 4 run lead.

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    GRIT BEARD!

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

    Bard can’t be dumb enough to throw Tex another slider, can he?

  • Don

    He throws harder and with far less movement. The reincarnation of Farnsworth.

    • Bob Stone

      Exactly.

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

    McCarver: “Baseball is one of those quirky games where a hitter can send it out much slower than it came in and be successful.”

    Pssst, Tim: How often in sports do “hitters” even “send out” balls that “came in” in the first place? Nevermind whether your comment is accurate or not: How many sports does this apply to? Baseball, cricket, and jai-alai?

    There aren’t hitters who send out balls that come into them in basketball, football, soccer, hockey, etc… what the hell are you babbling about?

    • JMK

      I’m sure McCarver would do an excellent job calling the Quidditch Cup.

  • Salty Buggah

    Mitre for the save please.

  • Lefty

    sorry about that guys… My computer was acting up… which led to a late post AND multiple posts…. It’s acting up as we speak… My apologies…

  • uncle stevie

    Get the Billy Martin pick ready

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

      Actually, they’ll be going with Tuck Stainback for #1

      http://www.yankeenumbers.com/p.....=%3D%2C%2C

      . . and if there ever was a Yankee with the name of a Gay porn star, he’s it.

      • JMK

        Wow. Nice find, artist. I’m sure Hideki already has his clips.

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

      Get the Billy Martin Bobby Murcer pick ready

      Fixed.

  • Tom Zig

    wouldn’t you want to put melky in left and leave swish in at right?

    • whozat

      Melky’s arm is potentially more useful in RF?

  • Salty Buggah

    Mo works too. Pad those save stats Mo-money.

  • Bob Stone

    I’m always nervous when Mo faces the BoSox. They’ve just seen him too damn many times. Let’s go Mo. Shut them down.

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

      Here’s the good news: He’s facing Ellsbury, Pedroia, and Martinez. Only one of those three guys can actually hit a 95 mph fastball.

    • Rey22

      It’s ok. He’s not human.

    • Marcus

      I was more worried when the likes of Kevin Millar and Bill Mueller were in the lineup. For some reason Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia just don’t cause the same level of anxiety.

  • Tom Zig

    1 down!

  • whozat

    Absorbed by RIvera? What is he, the blob?

    • Riddering

      +84

    • JMK

      Flubber FTW.

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

    Man, I haven’t seen that Carl Everett-Mike Mussina clip in a dinosaur’s age!

    • Mike Pop

      HAHAHA

  • Tom Zig

    2 down!

  • Riddering

    They’re KILLING ME with these flashback clips.

    /Costanza’d

  • Bob Stone

    Way to go Mo. One more.

  • Rob H.

    I remember that Mussina game. Damn Carl Everett.

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if the yankees win the WS the year before Moose comes to the Yankees and the year after Moose leaves the yankees?

    • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

      That would be ok by me.

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

      /Mattingly’d

  • Lefty

    Man, I think that cutter right there had more movement than most peoples’ sliders… Just downright disgusting…

  • Salty Buggah

    Damn, 1-hitter gone.

  • JMK

    Squirrel Beard will be the last out.

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

      OR, HE WILL GET HIT LIKE A BITCH!!!!!!

  • whozat

    k…so, we just decided to hand them a few bases. Ok.

  • Lefty

    for whoever was asking earlier… THAT is the difference between an uncontested SB and a defensive indifference…

  • Lefty

    c’mon Mo, throw him a 2-seamer inside…

  • Tom Zig

    come on mo!

  • Accent Shallow

    HBP on Youkilis?

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

  • JMK

    Throw your batting glove, Youk!

  • Lefty

    oops… lol…

    • Lefty

      REPLY FAIL

  • Mike Pop

    Strike this fucker out.

  • Riddering

    Mo’s been hanging around that punk Joba too much.

    /media’d

  • Rey22

    Why is it that I always crack up everytime we hit Youkilis?

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

      Because you’re a cruel, sick, twisted human being.

      I knew there was something I liked about you.

  • Dave

    Officially nervous

    • Zack

      game officially over

    • http://www.homeruncards.com/imagesrc/melky-cabrera.jpg Drew

      Officially insane.

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

        Some people need that 100th win to calm down. Most fans figure it out sooner.

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

    Magic Number = 1

  • Accent Shallow

    I love Mariano.

  • Salty Buggah

    WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Yankees win

    Uno, bitches.

  • Bob Stone

    Awesome!!!!!!!!!

  • Jersey

    HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!

  • whozat

    Mo just wanted to get to Youk so he could plunk him.

  • Lefty

    sweep tomorrow… that would truly be great…

    steaks and blow jobs and TSJC is paying for it!

    These Red Sox just can’t compete with the Varsity.

    • Rey22

      but…but…no weaknesses!1111

    • Chili Davis

      But … but … the Red Sox are the most “dolled up” for the playoffs.

      • Tom Zig

        like a fat chick in a moo-moo

        • Chili Davis

        • JMK

          That’s not fair.

          Hot.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Hey i put a link of that pic the other day :)

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

      Yeah, it was too good to pass up.

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

        Excellent choice, I miss Bobby.

  • http://kikojones5.blogspot.com Kiko Jones

    Despite CC’s masterful performance, I didn’t think the Yankees deserved to win this one after the LOUSY non-hitting w/RISP, but once the Sux blew the Gardner play at 3B and walked Molina, I could get behind this one.
    And speaking of one…

    • crapulent

      Gee that’s great of you.

    • Zack

      So the Red Sox, who had 1 hit prior to the 9th inning, deserved to win it more?

      • http://kikojones5.blogspot.com Kiko Jones

        Sorry. What was I thinking?

        A team that woefully and repeatedly, fails to capitalize on a wobbly pitching performance such as Dice-K’s—including an instance in which said pitcher walked 2 consecutive hitters to load the bases, only to have both A-Rod and Matsui swing at first pitches with pathetic results and scoring no runs in the end—does not deserve to lose that game.

        Why learn the lesson of what happens when you waste numerous opportunities to score in such a lame manner? It’s not like it’s gonna come up in the post-season with the weak pitching they’ll be facing, right?

    • Riddering

      Your qualifications for winning games are strange and off-putting.

      • JMK

        His real name is Pedro Sorano.

        • Whitey14

          Cerrano

    • Accent Shallow

      The offense didn’t do much, but it did enough.

  • uncle stevie

    sorry….who’s that #1 ?

    • Chili Davis

      Bobby Murcer

    • yankeefan91 Arod fan

      Bobby Murcer

  • Ivan

    Numero Uno Baby.

  • uncle stevie

    brain cramp(pun not intended) Bobby murcer

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

    Again! Again those fuckers at LoHud steal our pic! Errrr…

    • Marcus

      Haha, I noticed that.

  • Frankie

    Cy Young for CC. Signed sealed and delivered.

    • Mike bk

      he probably comes in 3rd.

      • whozat

        He should…he’s finished strong, and his team is going into the post-season, but it’s for the best pitcher. That’s been Grienke, and Hernandez has been a close second.

        • Bob Stone

          Agree.

        • JMK

          True that.

    • Zack

      CC for 3rd place finish.

    • Bob Stone

      Definitely Third

    • Mike bk

      if he hits 20 and has another outing like this one to get his era to 3.1 ish maybe they give him 2nd, but i doubt it.

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

    MERCER!!

  • Bob Stone

    I miss Bobby – What a great guy!

  • Marcus

    It would be pretty enjoyable to get the sweep tomorrow.
