Game 20: Stop the bleeding

By

RAWR!!! (Photo Credit: Rob Carr, AP)

As fast as the start to the season was for the Yankees, things turned in the opposite direction just as quick. They’ve lost four of their last five games despite being outscored by just three runs during that stretch. Even with their recent dip, the Yanks still have the fourth best winning percentage and fifth best run differential in the game, plus … you know … the season is far from over. They’re still on a 102 win pace.

CC Sabathia gets the ball tonight in an effort to right the ship, back at the site of where he first announced his arrival to the Yankees last May. He faced Jeremy Guthrie that night, and he’ll do the same again on this one. Of course, Alex Rodriguez stole the show in that game when he hit a three run homer on the first pitch thrown to him on the season. Such a selfish jerk.

CC’s coming off back-to-back complete games, except one was rain shortened and the other was an eight inning loss. You can tell Joe Girardi is really trying to get off the schneid tonight, he’s sending the A-lineup out there to back up Sabathia…

Jeter, SS
Johnson, DH
Teixeira, 1B
A-Rod, 3B
Cano, 2B
Posada, C
Granderson, CF
Swisher, RF
Gardner, LF

And on the mound, Carsten Charles Sabathia.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm, and can be seen on YES. Enjoy.

    plus … you know … the season is far from over.

    You mean… the World Series isn’t gonna be Padres/Athletics?

  2. I wanna see a CC roar.

    /will be GameDaying it til about 8:10. :(

  3. Daniel says:

    Mark my words, today will a massacre of birds. Tex will have an awesome day, nick johnson will have himself a fine day as well. KK Sabathia will finish the day with 8 strike outs in 7.2

    Today is the day to stop bleeding, and for tex and nick to wake up, yankees win 10-1

  4. Tommy Fusco says:

    Ok guys. Predict The Player.

    Tonight?

    Curtis.

    I say 0-4 with a BB.
    1K

    Also, lets here your other ‘stat predictgion of the night’.

    Pitching: I’ll go with Joba striking out two in the 8th.

  5. I know our bullpen sucked last night but…we could have Trevor Hoffman as our closer.

    See, you feel better now, don’t you?

  6. Hangoverologist says:

    CC will be teh dominance tonight.

  7. Tommy Fusco says:

    i”ll keep tabs on the Preditc the player this week.

    One who gets the closest stats for a full week, ill send some sort of yankee thing out. to the winner

    • Tommy Fusco says:

      edit: ‘predict’

      also, why oh why can’t the yankees have different radio announcers?

      you can’t predict baseball!!
      i swear i once heard Sterling say that on a high first pitch.

  8. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Yeah let’s have our offense not only centered with Cano and JoPo today.

  9. Drew says:

    Wow that stadium is empty.

  10. Alex S says:

    nice start

  11. Way to get it started, Jeet. Bring him around!

  12. First Time Poster says:

    Woo! Double… in foul territory… wait… are these the same umps from last years ALCS or is game-day on something.

  13. Alex S says:

    I don’t believe what i just saw!

  14. JobaWockeeZ says:

    But I thought NJ could only walk!

  15. A.D. says:

    Johnson looked out at first sight.

  16. I already have the feeling tonight will be better than last night.

  17. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Hey Nick Johnson got a walk hit!

  18. Across the pond says:

    Nick DA STICK!

  19. Did Jeter score via fielding error or throwing error?

  20. Hangoverologist says:

    Johnson can hit?!

    ::head explodes::

  21. Tommy Fusco says:

    Nick, at nite!

  22. Pat D says:

    Sacrifice hit!

    Oh, wait.

  23. Pat D says:

    Sacrifice fly!

    Really this time!

  24. Across the pond says:

    Where was the first pitch 3 run homer alex??? Kay told me it would happen!

  25. bexarama says:

    Not a HR? DFA! Narrative killed!

  26. A-Rod’s sac fly looked quite deep on GameDay. How was his swing? Did he just get under it?

  27. Judging by the twittername, I guess Kyle Wilson is going to rock Thomas Jones’s old #20 for Green and White.

    http://twitter.com/therealKDUB20

    (That Mets jersey/hat, though… ugh. I guess they don’t teach ‘em class in Piscataway.)

  28. Poopy Pants says:

    NJ’s got wheels, yo.

  29. Cano’s hitting EVERYTHING really hard this year.

  30. Tommy Fusco says:

    Good quick first inning, pushing across a few scratch runs.

    CC’s first few innings will tell the tale, he gets his motor going thru two, two will be all we’ll need.

  31. Mike Axisa says:

    A-Rod is unimpressed by your bunting, Adam Jones.

  32. For Lack of a More Creative Name.. Alex says:

    Wow that was beautiful.

  33. Across the pond says:

    I’d give that webgem #4

  34. Pete C. says:

    Arod as Brosius, nice play.

  35. Hangoverologist says:

    A-Rod still has that cannon.

  36. First Time Poster says:

    What was that Markakis double like? Looked deeeeeep on gameday.

  37. JobaWockeeZ says:

    I still think Cano beats Pedroia.

  38. Tommy Fusco says:

    ok, chill Ceec. :)

  39. Hangoverologist says:

    My fantasy team weeps, for I have Wieters as my starting catcher.

  40. bexarama says:

    Guthrie reaaaaally needs to stop hitting Yankees.

  41. Jesus vs. Aroldis coming up soon. I’m as excited as JMK at a Justin Bieber concert.

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/gameday.....a_swbaaa_1

  42. JobaWockeeZ says:

    If anyone can actually pitch over the plate on the opposing team, let me know.

  43. Tommy Fusco says:

    Thanks curtis. you were freaking me out, bro!

  44. JobaWockeeZ says:

    An even slower Jorge? Good luck.

  45. Across the pond says:

    Damn I wish we were in the NL.

    CC getting some back would be awesome

  46. Mike Axisa says:

    Slump bustin’ kinda night. First NJ, now Curtis.

  47. Hangoverologist says:

    Does Jorge get lifted at any point during this game?

  48. Drew says:

    SWISHAHOUSE!!! BITCHESSSS

  49. JobaWockeeZ says:

    ROAD SWISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. Hangoverologist says:

    Swishalicious!

  51. Mike Axisa says:

    Road Swish strikes again.

  52. Tommy Fusco says:

    A Swishle!

    statement game from the yanks.

  53. Across the pond says:

    Jeremy just got PWNED

  54. poster says:

    I wonder if Jorge’s gonna stay in the game?

  55. Sheepmeister says:

    Swisher with 2 triples this year, does that double his career total?

  56. Jose says:

    Is Pena the third catcher?

  57. JobaWockeeZ says:

    An early 4-0 lead on a CC start. Things are looking up.

  58. Hangoverologist says:

    I’m predicting a CG SHO for CC.

  59. Tommy Fusco says:

    ‘Sado’ falls to the SI curse!!!!! lol

    :)

  60. Pat D says:

    There’s the NJ we love.

  61. Dela G says:

    looks like CC could literally ZZ through this start

  62. bexarama says:

    Dear Yankees,

    Please keep this up. I will be a happy person if you do.

    Love,
    bexy

  63. nathan says:

    Joined late, any updates on the extent of Posada’s injury.

  64. Drew says:

    CC hits Wieters?

  65. Dela G says:

    lol kim jones without guys around her? are the men not into wimmenz?

  66. JobaWockeeZ says:

    YES camera work FTW.

  67. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Shity SS do seem to hurt the Yanks. Like Nick friggin Green.

  68. ShuutoHeat says:

    Got home, tired and pissed. Nothing better than to see the Yankees up 5-0.

  69. poster says:

    That poll is really awful.

  70. Drew says:

    Anyone that picks bowl should be deported.

  71. Poopy Pants says:

    That is the single worst YES poll EVER. How embarrassing.

  72. Tommy Fusco says:

    tex .125 BA?
    1 hit in 4 AB’s eveyr night will take that thing forever to just get to 200! lol

    ok guys, which will be lower this year, tex’s BA or Halladays ERA?

  73. Dela G says:

    wow nice catch

  74. Drew says:

    What’s the deal with airline peanuts babip?

  75. BOOOMMM!!! Goes Jesus….fly out to RF

  76. Dela G says:

    CANO!!!!

  77. Tommy Fusco says:

    Cano On Crack!
    :)

  78. Hangoverologist says:

    Robbie!

  79. Mike Axisa says:

    What a beast. RBInson Cano.

  80. Poopy Pants says:

    “Cano’s HR is not a good sign for the Yanks.”

    Karros

  81. Andy_C_23 says:

    I hate to sound like a dickhole, but I called he’d go yard:
    http://riveraveblues.com/2010/.....ent-858526

  82. ShuutoHeat says:

    Be scared, be very scared of the lazy Cano.

  83. Dela G says:

    how crazy is it that joepo gets injured on a ZZ start?

    i swear the baseball gods want cervelli catching him

  84. Mike, you have a new contestant on DoTF tonight.

  85. WIlliam says:

    Figures, I have to sit through an extremely painful game to watch yesterday, and I miss a great run-scoring bonanza. Still, at least we’re finally crushing the Orioles. Cano for MVP!!!!

  86. poster says:

    Is it me, or has Jeter not been fielding well lately?

  87. Cecala says:

    I really want a Granderslam, btw these sloppy gloves need to stop, there is no sense in giving the Oriels a free base.

  88. Phranchise says:

    alright how the hell is that scored a hit? i mean honestly that is a doable play

  89. WIlliam says:

    Damn.

  90. WIlliam says:

    To be fair, when Roberts is out, it doesn’t take much to be the best hitter on the Orioles.

  91. Dela G says:

    man what the heck is goin on

  92. WIlliam says:

    Damn, it shouldn’t have been an earned run.

  93. Reggie C. says:

    I wonder how many runs the CC-Cervelli tandem have given up? I cant remember the last time.

  94. Across the pond says:

    Dammit O’s…Cut the damn grass

  95. Drew says:

    Yeah Michael, stadiums have giant walls in the OF, that’s okay. LONG GRASS??!? I DON’T THINK SO!

  96. ShuutoHeat says:

    Damn pussy hits…

  97. Dela G says:

    can’t wait till ZZ’s fastball gets to 96-97 as the season progresses. he’ll be unhittable!

  98. bexarama says:

    does Wieters have a really nice swing or am I totally misjudging it? jw.

  99. WIlliam says:

    So, what was the horrible poll question?

  100. Reggie C. says:

    Note to Kay. Most great HS baseball players are also great in every other sport. Athleticism is all you need when you’re 17 to dominate.

  101. Reggie C. says:

    IKE DAVIS = ROY ?

  102. Dela G says:

    gritster!!

  103. Kevin Russo is unimpressed with Aroldis Chapman.

  104. Tommy Fusco says:

    on a side note, the mets are in first place? 13-9!?

  105. Drew says:

    Cruise Control

  106. Drew says:

    Picked up Rich Harden off the scrap heap the other day. Lets see if I’m a genius.

  107. Dela G says:

    ha i totally forgot about dick pole, the pitcher

  108. WIlliam says:

    Cano player of the month? near 400 avg, 6 homers, great fielding.

  109. Drew says:

    Let’s see some NJ power.

  110. WIlliam says:

    How dare you question NJ?

  111. WIlliam says:

    OBP Jesus strikes again.

  112. WIlliam says:

    Come on Tex.

  113. Dela G says:

    i dont get why NJ doesnt expect the pitch inside on EVERY 0-2, 1-2, 2-2 count?

    i bet it would help his backward K rate

  114. WIlliam says:

    SHouldn’t Mark be heating up by down.

  115. JobaWockeeZ says:

    So you mean protection doesn’t actually mean anything? Shocker.

  116. WIlliam says:

    A-rods in a mini-slump.

  117. Kenny was an .829 OPSer in April; but that fell to .777 in May.

  118. Dela G says:

    good god! 98 pitches through 4 2/3? wowzers

  119. Anyone going to watch “Happy Town” on ABC?

  120. T.J. says:

    Left to get a soda and John and Suzyn were talking about Ryan Howard. I come back and they’re still talking about Ryan Howard.

    Ugh…

  121. Dave Winfree unimpressed with Aroldis.

    but….

    Aroldis unimpressed with Jesus…..:(

  122. Dela G says:

    cano makes it too damn easy

  123. WIlliam says:

    Is he hitting 400 now?

  124. Nick L says:

    Beast, enough said

  125. Drew says:

    Johnson with the wheels! Robbie is just beasting.

  126. Okay, look, I love Cano. But if there is anyone who thinks he’s better than Utley, that person needs electroshock therapy.

  127. WIlliam says:

    Okay, Utley is better than Cano. Cano has the potential to be better, but until then Utley>>>Cano.

  128. Dela G says:

    cervelli!!

  129. Pat D says:

    All rise in the presence of Dark Helmet!

  130. Rey22 says:

    Cano is just automatic right now. Batting .400!

  131. T.J. says:

    Now this is more like it.

  132. mike c says:

    cisco velli!

  133. Drew says:

    Texas hung 5 on Peavy in the first. Come on Harden, give me 5 innings!

  134. Kid Kelly says:

    Cervelli 5-6 with RISP – one more hit than Granderson in those situations with 18 less at bats.

  135. Dela G says:

    saw this on earl weaver’s wikipedia and made me roll on the ground in laughter

    His Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer, who battled with Weaver on a regular basis, once noted: “The only thing that Earl knows about a curve ball is he couldn’t hit it.” After Palmer’s skills began to decline and he was no longer a regular starter, Weaver defended his actions by claiming he’d given Palmer “more chances than my ex-wife.”

  136. Dela G says:

    very nice double play

    ZZ makin it easy

  137. Drew says:

    That gap is getting a workout today.

    /twhs’d

  138. Dela G says:

    man i drop swisher from my fantasy team last thursday, and he goes on some wicked streak

    harrumph!

  139. Dela G says:

    GUTNER!!!!

  140. Alex S says:

    Gardy better steal here

  141. Dela G says:

    jeterian

  142. Drew says:

    JETE!

    Double steal!

  143. Ana says:

    THIS is how you play the Orioles

  144. WIlliam says:

    I’m going crazy. Could’ve sworn Kay just said “Rick Moranis the pitching coach”. It’s ’cause I was just reading the Space Balls references.

  145. Dela G says:

    by the way

    ladies and gentlemen, jon lester is back, and my fantasy welcomes him with arms wide open

    [/creed’d

  146. JobaWockeeZ says:

    A .500 OBP today isn’t struggling.

  147. Pat D says:

    How dare you sully the name of Creed Bratton!

  148. WIlliam says:

    Not that I have any particular problem with it, but doesn NJ usually strike out this much?

  149. Drew says:

    Ugh. Can’t get no respect.

  150. V says:

    Man, I like my job, but I REALLY don’t want to be studying right now.

    1) Non-Discrimination testing for Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution plans.
    2) Multiemployer Withdrawal Liability
    3) PBGC Guaranteed Benefit rules.

    Weeeeeee.

  151. V says:

    Ok. The BABIP gods have foresaken ARod.

  152. WIlliam says:

    BABIP being a bitch to A-rod right now.

  153. Drew says:

    Ahh, that catch would’ve been super legit.

    Miggy’s dive was epic.

  154. bexarama says:

    I swear, BABIP. I will murder you.

  155. Tommy Fusco says:

    has CC had a one two three yet?

  156. Dela G says:

    lol they should have a poll: Who would you pick in a 4 woman chocolate pudding fight?

    1) Heidi Watney
    2) Hazel Mae
    3) Kim Jones
    4) Erin Andrews
    5) My Right Hand

  157. The Cano discussion above is getting too crowded, so to answer Tommie/JMK:

    I agree w/Tommie that Cano will eventually learn PD and start flashing some OBP skills. I think that as his BA skills decline, he’ll start focus on hitting for more power. As he does that, pitchers will start pitching around him and he’ll start walking more.

  158. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Suck it Braden. Little girl.

  159. Drew says:

    Dallas Braden dicked my ERA tonight. Douche.

  160. Dela G says:

    good to see dallas braden gettin his ass kicked by the rays tonight

  161. LB says:

    all the sudden swisher has wheels…lol…i love it

  162. Dela G says:

    wow cano got an out

  163. Dela G says:

    my fantasy team hopes mike gonzalez can turn it around

  164. I really want Curtis to go deep here. The run would be meaningless but for some reason, I enjoy it a lot when Cla gets pounded.

  165. Dela G says:

    yay granderson!

  166. Drew says:

    I’m a little bummed there has been no retribution for Jorgie getting hit. If it doesn’t happen tonight I’d bet that AJ will have something to say about it tomorrow.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      Who to hit tough? If Huff was still there I’d advocate him to get drilled. But there’s no one that’s worth hitting on that team. They suffer too much already.

      Maybe a brushback pitch or two.

    • Cecala says:

      But Jorge and Burnett have their difficulties.

      /2009 MSM’d

    • Pat D says:

      Didn’t appear intentional to me.

      He was already down 2, why do you want to put more guys on base?

      • Drew says:

        I dunno, Granderson is slumping and Jorge is killing, first pitch hbp. Even if it wasn’t on purpose, Guthrie needs to be careful. It seems like we’ve gotten hit in every game. Plus, I’m just a spiteful ass.

        • Pat D says:

          Well, at least you’re honest.

          I don’t mind retribution either, so long as it’s justified. Mainly because I don’t want to hear whining about the Yankees being a “dirty” team, or other such nonsense.

  167. Cecala says:

    I wish I could watch this game, the Capital’s are on the verge of elimination so I can’t look away.

  168. bexarama says:

    Darnell McDonald, remember you’re Darnell McDonald

  169. When Eiland, Girardi, and Pena all stand in a row like that, they look very intimidating.

  170. Andy_C_23 says:

    Is that Spike Lee in the Turkey Hill commercial?

  171. Drew says:

    CC has to be good for 115-120 tonight.

    Also, “CC likes the DP.”

  172. Dela G says:

    CC likes DP???

    wow kay…

  173. Kind of surprised that carried that far.

  174. Hangoverologist says:

    Kay just said CC likes DP.

    Interpret that as you wish.

  175. Dela G says:

    markakis killed that one

  176. Great opposite field power there; nice display by Markakis.

  177. bexarama says:

    Boooo. Get the next guy, CC.

  178. Who comes in for the low leverage 8th? Mitre?

  179. The people in the Hoyt Livery ad are some of the ugliest people on television.

  180. bexarama says:

    did NJ just ground out on the first pitch? Ruh-roh!

  181. Dela G says:

    looks like tex is going to erupt very soon

    it sucks cuz i am playing against him this week in both fantasy leagues…

    oyvey

  182. Phranchise says:

    ughh why would you bring CC back for the 8th? I know he’s pitched well but there’s no need to use his arm for another inning for this situation. come on girardi

    • Drew says:

      Is one more inning going to effect him negatively?

      • Phranchise says:

        its possible. and innings add up, the less you pitch him in the regular season the better in this kind of situation

        • Drew says:

          I disagree, in a low stress game I don’t see 10 more pitches having any real effect on him. 99 pitches for Hughes isn’t the same as 99 pitches for CC.

          • Phranchise says:

            that may be true, but either way the pros of leaving cc in dont seem to be able to outweigh the cons. give those innings to a near-useless arm like mitre

  183. Dela G says:

    man, 2003 a rod gets a single off that

  184. dark side of the goon says:

    I am more of a reader than a poster but seriously the fantasy league comments seem a bit out of control this year.

  185. Phranchise says:

    apparently theres another a.j. burnett in the majors. Hes not actually called aj, but still
    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/.....erId=30410

  186. Dela G says:

    why not put in mitre instead of joba

  187. Nice thought by Swish.

  188. Dela G says:

    man ZZ looks pizzed

  189. JobaTheHeat62 says:

    i love having an ace

  190. bexarama says:

    Have I complained about BABIP yet? Yes? Okay.

    Good job, CC. He didn’t have great stuff but he was still CC. :)

  191. Drew says:

    Utto, Rich Harden is trying to do me dirty. Hold on Texas!

  192. Yankee1010 says:

    Is 110 pitches the new limit for everyone, regardless of situation? Who couldn’t see CC getting pulled after he completed the at-bat in which he threw his 110th pitch?

    It seems like it doesn’t matter if it’s 110 pitches in 5 innings, 6 innings, 7 innings or 8 innings, you’re coming out at the point regardless. It seems ridiculously stringent this year.

    • Phranchise says:

      uh not really. and 110 pitches is plenty. theres nothing wrong with taking a pitcher out after that

      • Yankee1010 says:

        That’s not my point. My point is that it’s 110 regardless of the situation. 110 in 5 or 6 innings is a lot more stressful than over 8 innings. It seems that without fail, Girardi is pulling a pitcher right after the at-bat with the 110 pitch. It also seems to be regardless of the lead that the Yanks hold too, e.g. Pettitte finishing the 8th with 114 pitches in a blowout. It seems that Girardi wants them to throw 110 pitches and then get them out of there. I know that’s simplifying it a bit, but I’m afraid it’s a little too accurate.

  193. Tommy Fusco says:

    man if this was any other team CC would have let up 8 runs. lol

  194. Drew says:

    Well that was anti-climactic.

  195. WIlliam says:

    Cano is crushing everything.

  196. Nice rip, Frankie. Good game for him.

  197. WIlliam says:

    Cerve’d!

  198. Steve H says:

    So what happened to Jorge?

  199. Steve H says:

    “Jon Lieber. He was hilarious. He was out there, just weird. I’d come out to the mound and if he had given up a home run, he’d say, ‘That was your fault.’ He was pretty good.”

    So apparently Jorge has been calling for the old HR pitch long before Burnett arrived.

  200. Ugh, I really hope no one goes down. I have absolutely zero faith in Mitre if he has to re-join the rotation. It really, really, REALLY sucks that Joba won’t be stretched out if that happens. Sigh…

  201. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Anyone think Nova would be better than Mitre as the 6th starter.

  202. Dela G says:

    goodness, mitre still can’t field the ball

  203. WIlliam says:

    Anyone got the feeling Girardi knew something about Mitre we didn’t?

    • Drew says:

      I’m on the record as probably the only one that has faith in Mitre. His stuff is nasty.

      Re Girardi: Until he hurt his elbow, probably in July or August of that year, he was flat out killing for Girardi down in Miami.

    • Phranchise says:

      eh he’s looked good but let’s not get too excited. he’s pitched like 5 innings

  204. Dela G says:

    last year i was all on mitre’s jock, saying he would turn it around

    he will turn it around this season

  205. I love that 30% of the people who were commenting here last night during the loss aren’t here tonight in the solid win. Shocking, really.

    • WIlliam says:

      Dante is conspicuously absent.

    • bexarama says:

      The Yankees suck and are embarrassing. They aren’t trying.

      (Please don’t say this is a strawman argument. It’s not. I saw people saying this on Twitter and LoHud.)

    • Drew says:

      lol, last night they didn’t come out till the 6th inning. It was like clockwork.

      • bexarama says:

        this. I don’t mind venting. Lord knows I bitch and whine enough. But when people only show up when the Yankees are losing to talk about how bad the team looks, how Girardi’s an idiot, how they’re not trying and they have no heart/guts/other intangible, how (whatever player) sucks, it really pisses me off.

  206. Bob Stone says:

    Great game. The Yankees ace was the stopper he is supposed to be.

  207. Cano says:

    You know what,

  208. WIlliam says:

    Damn, the Rays are Red Hot!

    • JGS says:

      Baltimore, New York (lost 2 of 3), Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Toronto, Oakland (current series), KC, Seattle, Oakland.

      Call back when they start playing real teams

      • WIlliam says:

        Wow, good point.

      • bexarama says:

        a lot of those were on the road though. Sweeping four at Fenway? They’re really good. Probably not as good as they seem right now, but good.

        • JGS says:

          I have to think that was rock bottom for the Sox. They aren’t that bad. Granted it was the Blue Jays but I think we saw Lester wake up tonight. Beckett and Lackey will get their shit together soon enough

          Tampa still scares me much much much more than the Sox do (David Price and BJ Upton were their two big question marks and both look pretty darn good so far), but they aren’t quite as good as their 16-5 mark makes them out to be.

  209. Bob Stone says:

    I wasn’t here last night but I am tonight. Just scheduling issues.

  210. Bob Stone says:

    I was watching the game on MLB.com in a hotel in the Boston area with a wired 100mbps connection. I still had many streaming problems. I picked up a few tricks on how to minimize it. Anyone know of methods to keep the streaming going?

  211. Steve H says:

    So if Sports Illustrated didn’t lose enough credibility by having Jon Heyman continue to write for them, there’s this. The CHB wrote an article explaining why he thinks the Celtics will beat the Cavs. Ok, he can have his opinion, which of course is always to go against the grain. Sports Illustrated then emails this column to a Cleveland blog to let them know and try to stir up the pot (and readers I guess). Seriously, Sports effing Illustrated has resorted to that?

    • Bob Stone says:

      At least they don’t charge Insider fees like ESPN does to give you the same drivel that you get for free from SI.com. That counts for something.

  212. JGS says:

    Fun fact: Darnell McDonald has more RBIs than Victor Martinez

  213. Jim S says:

    Was at the game tonight. Amazing how sad Camden Yards is these days. Beautiful stadium, terrible team.

    Otherwise though, an immensely enjoyable game. Very little stress. Definitely an easy Zen Baseball game.
