      when he gets back.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a The Large Sample Size

      Bunts are almost always a losing strategy unless they’re unexpected.

      Brett Gardner’s fast, but not Usain Bolt fast. Even he shouldn’t be bunting for hits (which means pretty much nobody except for Tim Raines/Rickey Henderson should be bunting for hits).

      • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

        And even they were smart enough to realize that working the count and getting on base was a better strategy.

      He needs 251 more hits to get 3,000.

    If Mikhail Prokhorov has his way, Mike Krzyzewski will be coaching his last collegiate game Monday night ve. Butler. Al Iannazzone reports that Prokhorov will waste no time once approved later this month and offer the Duke coach a contract worth between $12 and $15 million a year. Under one scenario, Krzyzewski would serve as both head coach and general manager.

    Really? For a guy who has coached zero games in the NBA? Hell, I’d rather have Tom Izzo for $3 mil, who isn’t a great recruiter, but is a fantastic coach.

    I guess I don’t see what Girardi sees. CC looked gassed in the 5th, after one batter in the 6th, why ws the pen NOT ready?

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a The Large Sample Size

      Yeah, this early in the season, I woulda had a shorter leash on him.

      But I suppose you also have to push the guys a little to get their endurance up. Double edged sword.

      • charles poet

        Yeah. I guess. As long as he doesn’t do that in August, we should be fine.

    • whozat

      THe pen HAS been ready. Joe wanted CC for Ortiz. I expect he was supposed to pitch around Youk more than he did, but he screwed the pooch.

      • charles poet

        Yeah, but that back fired. CC got hit in the bottom of the 5th and then the first two this inning. He shouldn’t have been pitching to Youk.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    If he was determined to go with CC against Youk, then the best play was probably to walk hik and face Ortiz with the bases loaded. Hope for a ground ball.

  • http://www.allposters.com/IMAGES/19/MAD_MAX.jpg gxpanos

    To those people who think they should have pulled CC after 5, or had the bp ready:

    It’s CC. Most of the time, he bears down and gets out of it. Sometimes, he doesnt. But because most of the time he does, he throws 4000 innings a year. General Joe did nothing wrong.

    • http://www.thechuckknoblog.com/ JobaWockeeZ

      It’s the first game of the season. CC is notorious for starting slowly. Most of the time he does get out of the situation but this early of the season I’d give it to the BP.

      You can be mad and upset about losing this game (if they lose it which I doubt they will) and not think the season is over or anything crazy.

      • whozat

        True. But, I mean…CC didn’t execute a couple times, but you can’t pull him that early — he’s still your big guy, and he needs to get in gear, and you want him to face Ortiz. It’s not like there’s been systematic fail all over the field or anything.

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a The Large Sample Size

    Silver lining:

    My favorite part of the 2010 Red Sox season will be that the players the Sox faithful hate the most (Drew, Beltre, Cameron) will probably be among their best players, and the ones they love the most (Ortiz, Lowell, Beckett, Papelbon) will be letdowns.

  • nathan

    ESPN had some cool graphics before the game… Fenway yields 1.3 hr/gm compared to 1.07 hr/gm in the league… a 36 degree arc is enuf to clear the green Monster… it will clear only 3 other ballparks and is a shallow popup in many of them… its atleast 30 ft closer to homeplate than league avg.. basically its a park where u can hv avg players and make them look pretty good

    That changeup was dirty; nice pitch Okajima.

    Anyone else surprised that there isn’t more comments?

      we’re all too busy jumping off bridges

    • http://www.thechuckknoblog.com/ JobaWockeeZ

      Honestly I’m surprised that there aren’t any jumpers today. It might be a sign of things to come.

      • ROBTEN

        With all of the comebacks last year, I expect they’ll wait until the end of the game, so that they can’t be proved wrong.

      I think we need new spillover posts at 500. Once it gets beyond that, it slows the refresh.

        Agreed.

        The Comment box gets so s-l-o-o-o-w to show what you’re typing…then it finally shows up, and you see your typos, and go back to fix them…and it starts all over again. Ugh.

    Good take, Grandy. Good take.

  • bobtaco

    Nice AB, CG

  • WIlliam

    Grandy has passed the “test”.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Way to work it, Curtis. Make up for that misplay in RF, Nick!

    • whozat

      Was it a misplay, or was he positioned poorly? There’s no way to know :-/

      • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

        Maybe he has a sore hamstring.

    I’ll take a walk against a lefty.

          His next career will be as a power hitter.

    Jon miller is an idiot! “Swisher the switch hitter coming up.” WTF is Granderson!?!?!? A lefty!?!?

  • bexarama

    these Yankees are just clogging the bases with those walks.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Dammmmmmmmmit, that was it Swish. Oh well.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Shitty. Oh well. Still winning.

  • Matty Ice

    no pitch count for relievers? I know it isn’t as important for RP, but I still find it interesting.

    • Matty Ice

      meant on the new YES broadcast graphic

  • http://www.mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

    Not sure if who else follows Schefter on twitter, but some idiot was harassing him today, saying that McNabb wasn’t going to be traded. Pretty funny stuff to check out.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Jeez, not that I’m saying the Red Sox are great, but can you imagine how long the innings are going to be when we play teams with really bad pitchers?

      10 walks per game minimum

  • BigBlueAL

    Who is that chick with Steven Tyler???

    • Dela G

      it looked like his daughter

      that girl looked waaaay too much like him

    • ROBTEN

      Probably a daughter, continuing the uncomfortable use of his daughters as attractive props. (see: Tyler, Liv in “Crazy” video).

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    That girl has bad teeth. Just sayin.

    Alright, CHP. Let’s bounce back from the 3-0 count and roll.

    I need to see a Chan Ho Park music video with him dancing to the music of Jai Ho, except clearly the Jai is changed to Chan

    Settle Chop. Get a GB…

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      I know its just a play on his name, but every time I hear Chop i immediately think it’s a racial epithet

  • WIlliam

    Wow, effort by Cano. Someones mad about the lazy thing.

    • ROBTEN

      It’s actually inverse laziness. He doesn’t want the game to go any longer.

  • WIlliam

    Wow, sox paying 8.6 mil of Lugo’s salary. Just wow.

    • bexarama

      I honestly can’t believe they were as good a team as they were with Lugo playing SO MANY games at SS for them

      • WIlliam

        Yeah. First of all, why the fuck was Lugo getting payed 9 mil. Second of all, was there really no one willing to take more than 400k of his salary, or at least an out-of-division team willing to match that?

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      What a bad contact.

    • JeffB

      So, does that count as part of their 2010 salary?

    • http://janeheller.mlblogs.com/yank_c.jpg T-Dubs

      It’s what all small market teams do.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Great pitch from Park on Taco.

    • Vinny the Bull

      Love that 2-seamer.

  • ROBTEN

    That last pitch to Ellsbury was nasty.

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

    Chop’s fastball has some ridiculous run on it.

    Is Ellsbury really wearing #2? What in the world?

    Chan Ho Park will be gone before this season is over, and that’s not based on this first game.

      What is it based on?

    • currambayankees

      I agree with you that Park won’t be around come the end of the season just a gut feeling.

  • Joe D.

    Didn’t look like that bad a pitch, really. Oompa Loompa did a nice job on it.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Yankees-Red Sox games in Fenway are just bad for your health. They don’t obey logic. A few years ago my Dad and I decided we would just stop watching Yankee games in Fenway. Sometimes I really wish we had stuck to that decision.

    fuckin chan ho park

    Joe Sheehan already ripping Girardi on Twitter for using Chan Ho:
