    Fire these umps…

  • Salty Buggah

    This Ump DOES blow.

    http://www.brooksbaseball.net/.....;sp_type=1

    Andy isnt getting actual strikes while Byrd is getting a lot of outside calls.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    A-well-a everybody’s heard about the byrd
    B-b-b-byrd, byrd, byrd, b-byrd’s the word

    (except the Yankees…)

  • Salty Buggah

    Cmon Youk, DP

  • Salty Buggah

    Damn these 0-2, 1-2 hits!

  • UWS

    Sometimes you just run into the Paul Byrds of the world and you just got to tip your hat.

    • Salty Buggah

      We will get to him the 2nd time through

    I really hope this doesn’t continue to be a tooth-grinding game.

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

    Twice now he’s walked the corpse of David Ortiz.

    • Moshe Mandel

      It means he fears him terribly and that he is better than Matsui.

    i want to pull my hair out

    • Dela G

      good thing i get edge ups on a bi-weekly basis

  • bonestock94

    I this bad ump thing a real trend the past few weeks, or am I just getting more biased?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      It’s been a trend this whole year to the whole league.

      • JGS

        or has it always been like that and things like pitch f/x are getting better at detecting it

        • JMK

          Good point. Either way, it’s unacceptable.

  • Salty Buggah

    Seriously Andy…get some command

  • Joba Rules

    What a shit show.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    I will take that run for the DP

  • Salty Buggah

    Damn, its a run but I guess I’ll take a DP. Wanted a K there. No command of the fastball and cutter today for Andy

  • Dela G

    that dp was nice to see

  • Salty Buggah

    finally a K

  • Joba Rules

    For as terrible as he’s been two runs through three innings is awfully surprising.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Finally, a favorable call!!

  • Dela G

    FINALLY!!

    YEZZUR!

    Now get paul byrd

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

    Yay Melky.

  • JGS

    THE MELKMAN!!

  • Salty Buggah

    Finally, a Melky HR! Been a while

  • JMK

    Leche Conquistador!

  • scooter

    I really want to clinch today – but I’ll take Andy getting through the start and finishing strong. He’s got one more start to fine tune things, and get ready for the playoffs.

  • Dela G

    FUCK YEAH LECHE!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

    Melky!

        I like that one, Scooter.

  • Dela G

    that wasn’t a short porch HR you idiot joe morgan

  • JMK

    Molina looks like Pete Rose on the base paths.

    • scooter

      Unfortunately it’s the 2009 Pete Rose

      He’s still a pretty solid backup C all in all.

  • Tom Zig

    Can we maybe run his pitch count up a bit?

    • JMK

      He’s going to shit the bed either way.

    • Sweet Dick Willie

      Why? Don’t you know the Sux have the best middle relief in the history of MLB?

  • Joba Rules

    I kinda wish they started Cervelli today.

    • Dela G

      every day of the week molina starts, i think the same thing

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

    FINALLY SOME JETS ACTION!!!!!

    This Mouton kid the Titans have is getting KILLED on punt returns.

    • Dela G

      agreed

      very agressive jets defense/ST

  • Salty Buggah

    One run, its a start. We’ll get him.

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

    Part of me wishes for the Cowboys to have a Mets-like inaugural season.

    The other part really doesn’t give a crap.

  • Salty Buggah

    Remember when Broncos-Raiders game used to really really interesting?

    I think the last time the Raiders were good was in 2001.

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

      The sad thing is, their defense has been quality for a few years now, and is excellent now that they’ve added Seymour and Ellis.

      Too bad they don’t have a QB or an offensive line. They could win the AFC West if they had those two things.

      • Salty Buggah

        Yea, they have had a decent defense when they play the Broncos. Their offense stinks but it was OK against us once last year.

  • Joe D.

    LOL — Miller just crapped all over Morgan, as Morgan was droning on about the “advantage” YSIII gives the Yanks: “Well, they’ve hit 105 HRs on the road and 129 at home in the same number of games.”

    Not a huge diff there, eh Morgan? With or without that one extra dinger every 3 games, the Yanks would have the best record in baseball. Further…reminder to Morgan: the opposing team gets to hit here too, you Giant Douche. Or Crap Sandwich. Whatever.

  • JMK

    I’m not a huge football fan, but it’s a pleasure to watch Mark Sanchez play.

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

      +6

      Also, isn’t it a little weird that Buddy Ryan and Marty Schottenheimer’s kids are running the Jets? If you’d told me that twenty years ago, I’d have looked at you like you were crazy.

      • JMK

        Having prefaced this statement by noting I’m not much of a football fan, I’ve always rooted for the Giants (like the girlfriend who doesn’t know any of the players’ names but is still a “fan”), but watching Sanchez really makes me want to change my thin allegiances to the Jets.

        I think I’m converting. And hey, I may even get more into football.

        I’d respond to your point but all I know about Buddy Ryan is that he was the defensive coordinator of the Bears in the 80s, right? Shottenheimer was with the Chiefs and the Chargers, right?

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

          Yes. And Ryan was the head coach of the Randall Cunningham Eagles.

          • JMK

            Eh. I was born in ’86. A bit before my time.

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

              Don Coryell was a bit before my time, but I still know that he was the head coach of the Cardinals and the Chargers.

              • JMK

                True, but you follow football. The only reason I happened to know anything about Ryan and Shott is because of the new media attention they’re getting. I don’t even know who coached the Giants before Coughlin.

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

                  I don’t even know who coached the Giants before Coughlin.

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

                  Well, MJD just scored again, and I do have plenty of guys going this afternoon.

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

                  Yeah, you might actually get me. I left Percy Harvin and Fred Taylor on the bench this week… those look like bad decisions on my part.

  • Dela G

    shut the hell up about the cost of the seats at yankee stadium

      also, those seats are $5

    no Jon, that’s not Andy’s first K

    • Dela G

      its his first 1-2-3 inning though

  • Salty Buggah

    Molina in a 0-17 slump*

    *Its not really a slump for him though, it’s pretty natural.

  • Salty Buggah

    Tex HRs here.

    • Salty Buggah

      well, he hit a HR, except it went on the ground.

  • Alex S

    wow they are really pushing this whole espn boston thing

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Usain: “Yeah. Sure”

    is Miller repeating the premise of that stupid Shaughnessy article?

      Yup.

      Sure looked like Boston’s “A” lineup yesterday that got 1-hit by CC, didn’t it?

  • Dela G

    joe morgan is a complete moron

  • JMK

    Theoretical Joe Morgan FTL.

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

      I missed it, what did he say?

      • Zack

        how Girardi/Francona are looking at the series differently.
        Francona has scheduled days off for his players, while Girardi is sitting them because of the weather/injury, therefore Francona is setting his team up for the playoffs.

      • JMK

        He was rehashing the Shaughnessy article with Theoretical Jon Miller. They both agreed that the Sox were resting players and not treating this series as anything of even miniscule importance. The Yankees, however, would have played both Damon and Posada but because Jorge’s neck hurts and Damon won’t play because of wet grass, they can’t. But they would if those things didn’t happen because they don’t rest guys! They go all-out!

        Absurd.

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

          That was Miller, not Morgan, Morgan was actually disagreeing with Miller. Always quick to judgement.

          • JMK

            Wow. I’m in shock.

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

              In shock? Morgan was saying if it was closer, the Yankees would be playing Posada and Damon, but the lead is large enough where they don’t have to. I know it’s shocking for you to understand.

  • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

    Joe Morgan has never sent a text message in his life.

  • Salty Buggah

    Cmon guys…get a run or 5

  • Zack

    looks like joe morgan and dan shaughnessy had a little chat today

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      So it’s safe to say Joe Morgan never paid attention to the Yankees lately before today?

      • Zack

        They read the paper from the day before and that’s what they go by

  • whozat

    This really is disgusting. Byrd is getting GIFTS off the plate.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Wow! Did Steve make an actual point?

    • JMK

      Impossible! He’d trade any point of reason for Rich Garces at age 70.

  • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

    Because of this, you just *know* Paul Byrd’s on the roster for an ALCS matchup.

    • Accent Shallow

      Shit, if this were the 20s, they’d consider starting him in Game 1.

  • Joba Rules

    Games like this is why I hate the

    “It’s the Yankee offense against their pitching” argument when it comes to facing topflight pitchers. They get shut down by pieces of shit like Paul Byrd.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Okay, someone should shoot fucking Joe Morgan.
    Regarding the issue of Tex beating Pena for HR hit, he says “I hope they tie” reason? “Sabathia hit Pena”.

    ARE YOU F@CKING RETARDED YOU F@CKING PIECE OF STUPID PIECE OF $HIT!?! Pena SWUNG at the pitch! ARE YOU STUPID?! Joe Morgan, are you going to blame everyone that hits Youkilis?! JOE MORGAN should go suck some dick so that he can get more retarded ideas in his head.

    I don’t know how everyone puts up with his BS, I need to vent.

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

      I’m pretty sure he wasn’t really serious. I don’t like his announcing either, and I understand it’s cool for everyone to hate on him, but calm the fuck down. No one makes you listen to him.

      • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

        ESPN makes us listen to him. There’s no equivalent of an SAP button for a smarter commentator….

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

          No one makes you listen to him. You are not forced to have the volume up. Yes, there might not be another alternative, however, there is a solution to not wanting to hear him.

      • ShuutoHeat

        I honestly can’t tell if he’s serious or not with his dead voice. He didn’t even emit a single chuckle, so was that a joke?

        Sorry, I just really needed to vent out all this Morgan crap.

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

          I don’t think he had his “dead voice”, as you call it, it sound light, thus I assumed he said it in a joking manner.

          • ShuutoHeat

            Sound light? He’s monotone. Literally monotone.

            Only when he chuckles and laughs can I tell that he’s joking.

            Look, it’s obvious we have different opinions on Morgan. Let’s stop this Morgan discussion right here.

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

              Listen to him right now. Is it his dead voice? Well, it must be if he is LITERALLY MONOTONE.

              • ShuutoHeat

                DUDE, this is all subjective. HE IS MONOTONE TO ME!
                Which part of that don’t you understand? Do you have to be correct? It’s my opinion.

                If you don’t like what you see, why don you practice what you preach? No one is forcing you to read my comments.

                It seems you have a gigantic love for Morgan.

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

                  Not really, I don’t, but if you can’t realize that it was a fucking joke, then that’s just sad. BUT BUT BUT HES TEH MONOTONE!!!11!!1!

                  But because you are totally fucking irrational, you post comment about telling him to go suck some dick.

                  DUMB.

    • JMK

      Your links don’t work. :<

      • ShuutoHeat

        Sorry buddy, I don’t know how the links got in there :P

        If I can provide some links that will alleviate the steam brought on by Morgan’s crap, I would.

    So now, the Yanks are being criticized for going all out, even they’re not? ESPN and others would erect statues for Boston for going all out.

    • scooter

      heh… heh…. you said “erect”

      Speaking of, I’m sure most of ESPN has serious wood over “ESPN Boston” – it’s a blatant acknowledgement of what most NY fans already know

      Yeah Andy seems in a groove, and the pitches are sharper. This is good.

      • whozat

        I think it’s actually because the umps don’t understand Leprechaun, and can’t actually understand Youkilis with all that beard in his mouth.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      The umpire realizes that if they complain, then they are probably wrong with their initial call. They will make it up to them later.

      Conspiracy theorists FTW!!

      not if the umpires have a say.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    SWISHER!

  • whozat

    Let’s wrap up the broadcast so far:

    1) The Red Sox are worthy of praise because, after getting SWEPT by the Yankees a month or more ago, they didn’t pack it in and continued to play hard,
    2) The reason the Red Sox aren’t winning right now is because they’re getting ready for October
    3) Despite sitting FOUR regulars in the rubber match against the Angels in Anaheim, the Yankees are still driving hard, which is apparently the only reason they’re beating the amazing, 2nd-place Red Sox.

    He was fucking safe you fucking disgrace of an umpire. Buy yourselves some glasses or get off the Red Sox nation.

    • whozat

      So, lemme get this right…Paul Byrd’s strike zone is 6 inches wider than Pettitte’s, and Pettitte’s is three inches higher, and the Yankees have to stay on the bag for a full five seconds before they can take off when tagging.

      Got it.

  • j

    what the HELL is joe morgan talking about

    • Giselle

      He just called swish a cheater. What class. Especially since swish left the bag after the ball hit the glove.

  • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

    Byrd is trying to throw the baseball through the runner at first.

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      heh, he throws harder to first than to home plate.

  • Dela G

    HE LEFT JUST FINE YOU IDIOT

  • JMK

    This umpiring is epic bad. Worse than usual. And that’s saying something.

    • V

      Nope, not worse than usual. This is actually better than usual. THAT is saying something.

      I really hope we can get an MLB umpires lockout and just start over. These guys all fucking suck.

      • JMK

        I’ve seen almost every Yankee game this year. Even this seems below those low standards. I’d be happy with an umpire lockout, but we hear all the time about the umpires getting documents displaying where they erred. Make them public! Make umpires accountable!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

    Was Melky out you stupid umpires?

  • Matty Ice

    Joe Morgan presented with the facts, and still comes off like a jackass.

    • whozat

      Joe, you’re WRONG! You are JUST WRONG!

    • Zack

      because the view from the third base camera angle, that’s not zoomed in on swisher’s foot, agrees with him he’s going to go by that to thinking hes right

    You know, it’s a good thing this game is meaningless, or I’d really be pissed.

    • Salty Buggah

      Im still pissed but not that much considering this is meaningless and we will still win.

    • Zack

      im pissed, because you know theres going to be some shit call like that in the playoffs

  • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

    Yes, because your vision is that of Superman, Joe. You twit.

  • Salty Buggah

    Fire all Umpires! I swear, stop trying to help the fuckin Sox all the time.

    An appeal works today?!?!!!! And it was a wrong call too!

    I guess it’ll be that much sweeter when we win!

    • whozat

      Dude, to call a guy out on an appeal, it has to be fucking CLEAR.

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

    Byrd, you have got to be kidding me.

    Throw a pitch to Molina.

  • Zack

    no joe, just because the ump agreed with you doesnt mean you’re right, beause you’re not

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    At this point, what in the world does Molina bring to the table that Cisco can’t?

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

      He fills out a uniform well?

    • whozat

      Nothing…which is why he’ll be on another team next year :-)

      • Tom Zig

        The Red Sox?

    • Salty Buggah

      Cisco isn’t a Panda?

  • Moshe Mandel

    That call directly removed runs from the board. Unbelievable.

    • JGS

      well, that’s the fallacy of the predetermined outcome

  • jay

    wait so replay showed he didn’t leave early, but joe morgan knows that he did. Where is FJM when you need it.

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

      Well, his upper body was moving, so, clearly, even if he was still on the bag he was already leaving early.

      Sincerely,
      Joe Morgan and Marty Foster

      • jay

        nice.

      • Klemy

        I just…dont even know what to say to that call. That’s just…so bad.

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

        It’s like intent to swing!

        Swisher was intending to run before he left the bag, therefore he is out.

    Morgan: “Inconclusive.” Is there something so horrible about admitting you are wrong, Joe Morgan? Or did Billy Beane still write Moneyball, too?

    • Zack

      if its inconclusive how do you OVERTURN a call?

  • Dela G

    joe morgan is a fucking asshat

    he was just fine on the base

    that wasn’t inconclusive

    C’mon guys, it’ll be all the sweeter when Yanks tie the game off Bard and win off Papelbon in the 9th.

    At what point do the Yanks get credit for being the best team in baseball. Cause I mean right now, we only win cause everyone lets us… With all our obvious holes its surprising we’ve won 99 games.

    • http://www.workwithpete.com Pete

      Don’t get excited, this is a team only built for the regular season anyway… :-P

      • jay

        Very true. I’m sorry.

    • Joe D.

      Jay, you’re not serious are you? Are you one of those boneheaded basement-dwelling number-crunching statheads who thinks the best team in baseball is determined by actually playing the games?

      The Red Sox are the best team, hands down. They are tops in grit and lead the league in sticktoitiveness.

        If UZR says Ellsbury is bad, well, then, that’s just proof that UZR must be shitty, because Ellsbury is a great centerfielder and everyone knows it.

    Bruney pitching? Ok, they’re definitely not trying to win this game.

    97 pitches in six innings?!?!?! That’s SO MANY!!

    • Moshe Mandel

      Did the same thing with CC. Trying to keep his starters fresh into the playoffs, especially with Andy’s little shoulder issue.

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

        Exactly.

        This game don’t matter.

        • whozat

          I know…I was just saying that they were acting like Andy was shockingly inefficient and that’s ridiculous.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    That will still be the #6 top play on ESPN tonite.

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

      I think you’re underestimating that play. Top 3 for sure.

  • Ryan

    I just want to thank ALL of you. I hardly ever comment on here, but constantly read the comments. Having all of you on here has helped me get through quite a few Morgan games. Plus, as hard as I try to convince my wife how biased ESPN is, she really doesn’t get it (or care) like all of you. I feel like I need to buy all of you flowers, or use some cheap pick up lines or something. Anyway, thanks!

    • ShuutoHeat

      We’re all with you in the same boat.

      He’s stupid, biased and oh so horrible.

      What’s funny though is…some people still continue to think that it’s our fault for wanting to watch a game that isn’t muted due to Joe Morgan.

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

        I don’t think it’s your fault, but whining about hearing him is really accomplished a lot.

        • ShuutoHeat

          Wow, you sure love to hound me about this whole Joe Morgan thing. You see everyone else with the Joe Morgan comments?
          Again, we all have our own opinions.

  • JMK

    I realize that the umpiring has been terrible (there’s no doubt) and it may have cost us a run, maybe two, but let’s not forget that we haven’t hit anything against a terrible pitcher. The players should shoulder some of the blame, too.

    This just in: A-Rod’s last hit is now an out. Joe Morgan saw something.

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

      The replay as inconclusive.

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

      The replays were conclusive enough to see that it wasn’t actually Alex batting, but Nick Swisher. So automatic out for batting out of order.

      • crapulent

        Swisher is a cheater.

        • jay

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I haven’t been watching the game until now so what did the umps do today?

    • Rey22

      Suck extreme balls. Move the strike zone all over the place and call Swisher out on a play he was definitely safe. Sigh, whats new?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      Swisher tagged up to third and was safe by a mile. So of course the Red Sox challenge that he left the bag early when it was clear that he didn’t and he was out on the appeal.

      • Brazilian Yankee

        Umps are nice people, they are trying to build the Sox confidence by handing them this game.

    • Salty Buggah

      Swisher tagged up to 3rd, One out. Sawx appeal, and even though he didn’t tag up early, he was called out. All BS.

  • Salty Buggah

    What?! Byrd had only 91 pitches? Are they actually trying to win the game by bringing in Saito to get out of a jam?

    No way, right?

  • UWS

    Possibly stupid question: how come the Jets and the Giants game started at the same time, but the Jets are almost a full quarter behind?

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

      Because we’re playing a real opponent, and the Giants are playing a glorified exhibition against the Buccaneers, who have been legally dead for 4 full years now.

        Why I oughta…

        /T. Coughlin

      • Andy in Sunny Daytona

        The Buccaneers and Jaguars are both going for the worst record so they can get a shot at a quarterback that no other team would draft in the first round.
