  1. Tom Zig says:

    me = annoyed.

  2. leokitty says:

    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.

  3. Tom Zig says:

    12 baserunners off Matsuzaka and only 1 run? wow

  4. Tom Zig says:

    Damon has a .664 OPS in September (not including today)

  5. pete says:

    the crowd is gonna get CC ejected

  6. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    love it

  7. MikeD says:

    Wow. Didn’t think he had a chance at that.

  8. Zack says:

    cc like a cat

  9. pete says:

    them’s some wheels there lowell

  10. acb says:


  11. To be injuried.


  12. goon says:

    gotta love CC’s intensity

  13. Accent Shallow says:

    Sabathia is such a horse.

  14. MikeD says:

    He can walk alone back to the dug out.

  15. Tom Zig says:

    Hughes then Mo?

  16. Salty Buggah says:


  17. Mike Axisa says:

    Remember earlier in the year when people said CC wasn’t an ace? Just a good, innings eating number two?


  18. Mike Pop says:

    Another great outing by the one not as good as Johan.

  19. MikeD says:

    Uh, oh. I’m supposed to be somewhere at 7:00 before heading to dinner. I need excuses for her for what will no doubt end up being an hour late!

  20. Accent Shallow says:

    Please don’t let Matsuzaka complete this inning.

  21. Accent Shallow says:

    What the shit, Tex.

  22. MikeD says:

    Uhh, Wagner was involved in the Yankee-Met rilvary. I think he’s had a taste of similar.

  23. Salty Buggah says:

    damn, I didnt want another K for Dice-BB

  24. JMK says:

    Give Dice-K some credit? For what? He’s pitched against two sub-par offenses, and this game he should have given up quite a few runs.

  25. Riddering says:

    There you go, TSJC.

    CC out.

  26. Zack says:

    wow thats a horrible clause for farrell

  27. Jersey says:

    3-1. Crush this shit big guy.

  28. DreDog says:

    Is it ok to refer to Dice-K as Douche-K?

  29. Lefty says:

    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…
    Ummmmmm……. Yea…… About that…. How is that .155 Avg. working for ya’ Petie?

  30. UWS says:

    Just getting in. Did I miss anything?

  31. Accent Shallow says:

    I am incredibly displeased with how this offense at the moment.

  32. Salty Buggah says:

    weak…1st 1-2-3 inning

  33. Riddering says:


    Hughes? After that load he pitched last night? Girardi’s gone mad!

  34. Zack says:

    tex earning his paycheck

  35. Tom Zig says:

    I love seeing Tex run

  36. Accent Shallow says:

    Nice D there.

  37. Mike Pop says:

    Gold glove for big Tex?

  38. So, Tim, you’re saying the reason that Mark Teixeira is a better defensive first baseman than Kevin Youkilis is because Youk is penalized for playing third base?

    :: head explodes ::

  39. Accent Shallow says:

    Are we going to see a Mitre/Edwar save attempt?

    (Nah, they’re just up in case the Yankees put up a six-spot in the 8th, right?)

  40. Jersey says:

    Susyn just said Mitre is warming? What?!

  41. Tom Zig says:

    huh? why are those 2 warming up?

  42. Accent Shallow says:

    Hughes’ cutter is effing nasty.

  43. Riddering says:

    Boston has no weaknesses. The pinch hitters coming off their bench are second to none!

  44. whozat says:

    Josh Reddick looks 7.

  45. Accent Shallow says:

    Phil Hughes is ludicrous.

  46. Tom Zig says:


  47. Jersey says:

    Phil Hughes. McNasty.

  48. Marcus says:

    That was a cutter on the foul tip K, right? Gameday says slider, but I’m thinking it was just a really sharp cutter.

  49. Tom Zig says:

    runs plz

  50. Marcus says:

    Wagner, this should be fun.

  51. MikeD says:

    What did he say? There’s never been a 1-0 game? Didn’t A-Rod hit a walk-off 1-0 against the Sox, or was there someone on?

  52. Kiko Jones says:

    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 says:

      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.

  53. Riddering says:

    I actually agree with FOX on something.

  54. UWS says:

    Who’s the moron in the booth with McCarver? He’s even more of an idiot than Buck. Somehow.

    • Don says:

      I think its Matt Vasgersian, he apparently forgot that 2000 is part of this decade.

      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.

  55. Tom Zig says:


  56. Tom Zig says:

    Dave Roberts was a pinch runner, not the batter correct?

  57. Story on Matt Carson’s first career home-run ball.

  58. Zack says:

    so is it mandatory to tell the story of the 2004 Red Sox 7 times a game?

  59. Mouch "half man half couch" says:

    Who is this ass announcing the game? I dont mean McCarver, the other ass.

  60. Tom Zig says:

    what does this graphic have to deal with anything?

  61. Mouch "half man half couch" says:

    Cano saw Gardner at second at continued to go into the fetal position.

  62. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn, Sterling almost made me get excited on a Swisher HR like 5 mins ago.

  63. Tom Zig says:

    Steal home!

  64. Mouch "half man half couch" says:

    Now that was “Gritty”

  65. Mike Axisa says:

    Nice Brett, now steal home. I sure hope Girardi pinch hits for Molina if Melky doesn’t get the run in.

  66. Zack says:

    Gardner just ran himself onto the postseason roster?

    i hate national broadcasts. there was a 0% chance gardner would be left off the roster

  67. Lefty says:

    hah, there go the great Red Sox catchers… against a stationary Yankee team that doesn’t steal bases…

  68. Tom Zig says:

    at least it was on the hip, not the elbow

  69. JMK says:

    Unintentional, but that looked painful. We’re lucky Melky is a bit doughy.

  70. Salty Buggah says:

    Haha…dont get a DP Molina

    Steal home Gardy or suicide bunt!

  71. Mouch "half man half couch" says:

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

  72. Tom Zig says:

    what the shit is this

  73. Jersey says:

    No Posada here?

  74. Lefty says:

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

  75. leokitty says:

    why is jose molina hitting for himself :(

  76. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    steal home gardner

  77. Rey22 says:

    Why are we not pinch hitting again?

  78. Nigel Incubator-Jones says:

    Molina is hitting?

    I posted way above.

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

  79. Oh really? He’s tagged?


    This Sox team has no weaknesses. NONE.

  81. Salty Buggah says:

    HAHA! Boston FAIL!

  82. UWS says:

    What just happened?

  83. Bob Stone says:

    That was weird.

  84. Mouch "half man half couch" says:


  85. Riddering says:

    I love me some Gardner.

  86. Lefty says:

    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!

  87. Tom Zig says:

    nice try with the phantom tag

  88. crapulent says:

    What happened?

  89. Zack says:

    atleast molina can GIDP now?

  90. Don says:

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

  91. crapulent says:

    I walked out of the room, what happened?

  92. whozat says:

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

  93. Don says:

    Wagner is pulling a K-Rod vs. Mo.

  94. Keep throwing that shit it the dirt.

  95. Zack says:

    so happy we didnt trade for wagner :)

  96. Salty Buggah says:

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

  97. Jersey says:

    GOOD EYE, Jose. Let’s go JETES

  98. whozat says:

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

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

    A: Walking Jose Molina.

  100. Nigel Incubator-Jones says:

    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.

  101. uncle stevie says:

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

  102. Lefty says:

    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…

  103. Mike Pop says:

    Come on Jete

  104. Tom Zig says:

    Closer of the future!

    He is from the space age!

  105. Don says:

    Cant locate the slider.

  106. Zack says:

    damn jeter

  107. Don says:

    but that fastball worked.

  108. Salty Buggah says:

    Damnit Jeter

  109. Accent Shallow says:

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

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

  111. acb says:


  112. Mike Axisa says:

    Johnny D’s in the house.

  113. Salty Buggah says:


  114. Bob Stone says:


  115. JMK says:

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

  116. Riddering says:

    Jonny gets some.


  117. Zack says:

    damon always gets the job done

  118. Nigel Incubator-Jones says:

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

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

  120. uncle stevie says:

    we can always count on Billy Bad ass

  121. Lefty says:

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

  122. Lefty says:

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

  123. Salty Buggah says:

    I hope Tex breaks Bard again

  124. Tom Zig says:

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

  125. Mike Axisa says:

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

  126. Don says:

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

  127. 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?

  128. Salty Buggah says:

    Mitre for the save please.

  129. Lefty says:

    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…

  130. uncle stevie says:

    Get the Billy Martin pick ready

  131. Tom Zig says:

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

  132. Salty Buggah says:

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

  133. Bob Stone says:

    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.

  134. Tom Zig says:

    1 down!

  135. whozat says:

    Absorbed by RIvera? What is he, the blob?

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

  137. Tom Zig says:

    2 down!

  138. Riddering says:

    They’re KILLING ME with these flashback clips.


  139. Bob Stone says:

    Way to go Mo. One more.

  140. Rob H. says:

    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?

  141. Lefty says:

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

  142. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn, 1-hitter gone.

  143. JMK says:

    Squirrel Beard will be the last out.

  144. whozat says:

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

  145. Lefty says:

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

  146. Lefty says:

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

  147. Tom Zig says:

    come on mo!

  148. Accent Shallow says:

    HBP on Youkilis?

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

  149. JMK says:

    Throw your batting glove, Youk!

  150. Lefty says:

    oops… lol…

  151. Mike Pop says:

    Strike this fucker out.

  152. Riddering says:

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


  153. Rey22 says:

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

  154. Dave says:

    Officially nervous

  155. Accent Shallow says:

    I love Mariano.

  156. Salty Buggah says:


  157. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Yankees win

  158. Bob Stone says:


  159. Jersey says:

    HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!

  160. whozat says:

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

  161. Lefty says:

    sweep tomorrow… that would truly be great…

  162. Tom Zig says:

    steaks and blow jobs and TSJC is paying for it!

  163. The Artist says:

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

  164. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

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

  165. Kiko Jones says:

    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…

  166. uncle stevie says:

    sorry….who’s that #1 ?

  167. Ivan says:

    Numero Uno Baby.

  168. uncle stevie says:

    brain cramp(pun not intended) Bobby murcer

  169. Mike Axisa says:

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

  170. Frankie says:

    Cy Young for CC. Signed sealed and delivered.

  171. Bob Stone says:

    I miss Bobby – What a great guy!

  172. Marcus says:

    It would be pretty enjoyable to get the sweep tomorrow.
