Game 59: CC in the rain

By

Photo Credit: Mike Carlson, AP

Is it just me, or does it seem like there’s a threat of rain whenever CC Sabathia is scheduled to pitch? I don’t know what Mother Nature has against the big guy, but he can’t seem to ever get decent weather when he starts.

The Orioles are throwing the poor and unsuspecting Chris Tillman tonight, who at this point in his young career is best known for giving up Derek Jeter‘s 2,722nd career hit, pushing him ahead of Lou Gehrig for the franchise’s all time record. Let’s hope they pound him like the Red Sox did his last time out. The lineup please…

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

And on the mound, CC Sabathia.

It’s raining in New York and Baltimore, though there appears to be a decent chance to get this game in. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm ET, and can be seen on YES. Enjoy.

    And on the mound, CC “The Rain Man” Sabathia

  2. I’ll take a CC & Water please.

  3. Salty Buggah says:

    Andy Pettitte seemed to have similar weather issues early in the year (especially spring training). Maybe it’s a Yanks LHP thing?

  4. A minor note – as if you didn’t know this – it was raining when Jeter got his record-breaking hit!

  5. Excellent job by Mike on his 3 day draft chat. I feel like I accomplished next to nothing at work the past 2 days, but that’s how I usually feel anyways.

  6. Interesting to see how well the HP ump from last night does at 3rd tonight. If he goes by last night’s results, every lefty check swing will be a strike.

  7. Salty Buggah says:

    Uh-oh. Sucka got no juice says Cliff Lee will go the Yanks. It seems dumb but I thought he was wrong last year too, but he was right.

    • king of fruitless hypotheticals says:

      i totally agree. that’s what we need to pull it all together–just a legit ace; a top of the rotation starter.

    • Cecala says:

      I hate these writers, they always add the Yankees to help the agents whose __ they __ (be creative). Anyway I am so glad the Yankees are not run by the MSM or else we would look like the Pirates.

  8. Sheepmeister says:

    So this may be a dumb question, but does it benefit the hitters or the pitchers more the more times teams face each other.

    • Marcus says:

      I don’t think there is a definitive answer to that, because it depends on adjustments. Some pitchers/batters adjust better than others.

      • king of fruitless hypotheticals says:

        maybe im just nuts, but it seems like the sox hit Mo better than anyone else does…do they really, and if so, could it be the amount they’ve seen him?

        i have to think its an advantage to the hitter–otherwise why would getting through the order get harder as the night went on?

        • JGS says:

          It also helps that the Sox have been a pretty good team for most of Mo’s career

        • Marcus says:

          Well that’s why I say it depends. Mo is exceptional I think, because he can’t really change his approach; everyone knows what’s coming, but he depends on location for it to work. So I think you’re right, if memory serves, that the Red Sox do better against Mo than others, but I don’t think you can apply the “hitters, over more at-bats, have an advantage over pitchers” rule widely.

  9. Philthy65 says:

    mike what do u think the top 10 prospects look like with the draft now over or does it not change the top 10

  10. Well, a hr is a fly ball Kay.

  11. Carlosologist says:

    Yup, Alex is bound to have a good series at home. BABIP has to stop treating him like a bitch at some point, right?

  12. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    The 26 y/o Tabata got a hit in his first AB!

  13. bexarama says:

    CC still doesn’t look right.

    /jinx jinx super jinx – go and dominate CC

    (yes jinxes don’t exist)

  14. BigBlueAL says:

    I need to come to this site more often during the day, I keep missing out on all the good debates. lol

  15. Accent Shallow says:

    This CC guy is pretty good.

  16. Carlosologist says:

    If the Yanks win today, they will clinch a season series victory over Baltimore.

  17. You’re telling me a pitcher never pitched a CGSO in his debut ever?

  18. Dela G says:

    Robbie = sleepwalking

  19. Cano will not be stopped.

  20. Accent Shallow says:

    I know Tillman is supposed to be a top prospect, but the stuff doesn’t impress me at all.

  21. Cano got a hit, what else is new?

  22. BigBlueAL says:

    Baltimore broadcast saying Orioles are calling up their top pitching prospect Jake Arrieta to start vs the Yankees tomorrow. Kid has some awesome numbers this season so far at Norfolk, anybody know how good a prospect is this kid??

  23. Carlosologist says:

    Robbie produced 4.6 WAR last season. He’s already produced 3.5 WAR this season.

  24. Eddie Murray is a serious looking man.

  25. Is it just me or does this ump have a tight zone?

  26. Damn, that was a good fight by C-Grand.

  27. Dela G says:

    goodness people, stop swinging at that high fastball

  28. This inning has just gotten frustrating. Damn. Come on, Russo!

  29. Carlosologist says:

    When Robbie gets another hit, I hope it’s a long ball. Why? It’ll be HR number 100 in his career.

  30. scott says:

    random question would any of you do this deal in fantasy: i would trade michael stanton and next years 3rd round pick for carl crawford and next years 7th round pick. keep in mind that stanton is keepable for 4 years and crawford can not be kept

    • Angelo says:

      Why would you trade for Crawford then? Stanton’s stock might be on the rise, and so might his strike outs. But the kid has tons of power, I would want to see what he could do before trading him away, especially when he’s not making much money. Crawford isn’t going to get better at this point, although he’s an excellent player, and there is no way he will be making anything less than $12M a year next season. And if Crawford can not be kept then it makes even less sense.

    • JGS says:

      How many teams are in the league?

      • scott says:

        12 teams, cant keep anyone taken in the first 4 rounds

        • Angelo says:

          I’d say keep Stanton if you believe he’s going to hit. Crawford might have more value because he can steal, and do everything else prett well, but you’re only going to have him for the rest of the season from what I understand. You will probably get more value out of keeping Stanton over the next few years.

          But if you think you have a legit shot at winning your league this year, I say go for it. Long term Stanton is the answer. I don’t know if this helps at all, hopefully it does. I’m not a fantasy expert though.

    • What league lets you trade picks?

  31. Dela G says:

    wow that sucked ass

  32. BigBlueAL says:

    I cant believe Im about to say this, but I would much rather have Thames starting in LF than Russo.

  33. bexarama says:

    Waaaah. That said, it’s early.

  34. Dela G says:

    cmon zz

  35. I love when CC goes to that slider against lefties. Awesome.

  36. Carlosologist says:

    Wow, nice comeback in that AB by CC. He was wild for three pitches, struck out Scott on the next three.

  37. Cervelli had no shot.

  38. BigBlueAL says:

    Eddie Murray wishes he played the majority of his career at Camden Yards and not the fairly spacious Memorial Stadium.

  39. Dela G says:

    man cc is having a rich harden-esqe start as of now

  40. BigBlueAL says:

    Atkins now 9 for 18 vs the Yanks this season.

  41. What the hell is going on here??

  42. Time to get the run back, Yanks.

  43. DJH says:

    CC and Tex have always been slow starters but hopefully they both kick it into high gear soon.

  44. Dela G says:

    aight lets get this right

  45. BigBlueAL says:

    Seriously Jeter??

  46. Tom Zig says:

    No one steals on The Wieters

    • BigBlueAL says:

      Orioles broadcast saying before that CS he has thrown out 34% of runners which I think they said the best or one of the best in the AL so far this season.

  47. BigBlueAL says:

    Alright Yankees with runners on 1st and 2nd to start the inning. Wait, what….

  48. DJH says:

    Damn nothing seems to be going our way right now. Good thing w got 6 2/3 more innings against the O’s pitching.

  49. Kay just said something intelligent. WTF?

  50. Dela G says:

    man wasnt tillman a top prospect a while back?

  51. PaulF says:

    I just hate caught stealings so much. It seems like the next guy always does something that would have advanced the runner anyway.

  52. baby carlos says:

    Tex.

  53. Wasn’t that a ball in the first inning?

  54. Can’t take that pitch with 2 strikes.

  55. BigBlueAL says:

    Nice to see Tex is back on track. lol

  56. Sigh, I keep waiting for A-Rod to get into a groove and put better swings on the ball, but it’s just not happening.

  57. cjc says:

    arg the fuck guys if the 3,4 ever starts hitting look out

  58. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    I would love if Tex could put a two game hitting streak together.

  59. Will in NJ says:

    What’s with Tillman’s lack of velocity? Isn’t he supposed to be a guy who at the very least sits in the low to mid 90s? He’s been at 88/89 the entire night.

  60. DJH says:

    Alex seems to be popping up a lot of pitches lately. He must be just a bit off with his swing.

  61. bexarama says:

    This game is annoying but it’s early and I’m already annoyed from stuff that’s going on soooo.

  62. Dela G says:

    does kim look more tan than usual? ha maybe it’s just me

  63. Why, Kim? He gets to hit O’s pitching, that’s why.

  64. Jose the Satirist says:

    Welch’s? The secret is grape juice?

  65. Frigidevil says:

    Hear that ladies? Swish is a “buns guy” (they were talking about swish… right..?)

  66. Accent Shallow says:

    I do not miss the Scary Flyball Guy in pinstripes. Sorry to hear that Hughes does.

  67. I don’t want any pitcher on the Yankees keeping in contact with Jeff Karstens.

  68. BigBlueAL says:

    Holy crap, the Orioles lead tonight is the first in 52 2/3 innings vs the Yankees this season.

  69. CC has no idea where the ball is going tonight.

  70. Not diggin’ the pinch count.

  71. BigBlueAL says:

    Can CC have an easy inning tonight??

  72. DJH says:

    Come on CC bear down here!

  73. Dela G says:

    man i can’t wait for the real ZZ to show up again like he did in apr

  74. baby carlos says:

    damn, 55 pitches in 2 2/3

  75. cjc says:

    man he has nothing again tonight sigh lock it down here CC

  76. cjc says:

    awful just fucking terrible

  77. BigBlueAL says:

    OK this is getting ridiculous now with the 2-out, 2-strike hits/runs.

  78. baby carlos says:

    nice play. air mail throw home …. for the kids watching at home, hit the fucking cutoff man.

  79. I do nto like this night.

    Except for the Mario 2 music. Awesome.

  80. DJH says:

    Well it looks like this is gonna be one of those games. Ugh

    We can’t buy a hit with 2 outs and they only hit with 2 outs.

  81. Carlosologist says:

    Le sigh CC. I’d just like for him to get out of the inning with just the two run deficit. Just hope the offense beats the crap out of Tillman and the bullpen so you can at least snag a win or ND.

  82. baby carlos says:

    Sergio, start warming.

  83. Angelo says:

    What’s happening in the game right now? I’m on RAB through my phone.

  84. Carlosologist says:

    Yay inning over. Offense, proceed to wake up and kick the daylights out of Tillman and his bullpen.

  85. whozat says:

    Umpires: “These games take too long!! What? That knee-high pitch over the middle of the plate? BALL!”

  86. Dela G says:

    cano = on fucking fire

  87. Carlosologist says:

    Is it wrong to hope for a rainout? CC’s bad start gets erased and two are played tomorrow.

  88. baby carlos says:

    rain out – gift for CC…

  89. Accent Shallow says:

    His fault for throwing over to check on Robbie. I love Robbie, great hitter, plays a smooth 2B, but he can’t run.

  90. poster says:

    Let’s go rainout!

    Clap-clap, clap-clap-clap

  91. Well, I’ll take it, but let’s at least tie this shit before they call it.

  92. DJH says:

    If we lose in 5 innings against Baltimore im gonna be pissed. There bullpen is where you do damaga against this team.

  93. 2nd nice play of the game by Izturis. The BABIP are collecting teh Cerve’s debt.

  94. bexarama says:

    Why am I rooting for a rainout ;_;

  95. DJH says:

    CC needs to hold Baltimore here so we have a better shot of tieing in the top of the 5th. In case the umps plan on screwing us by waiting to call the tarp until it’s official.

  96. baby carlos says:

    yep, call the game now and save CC’s arm.

  97. Okay, get two runs, then let CC finish it off. Please? Haha.

  98. His pitch count needed that.

  99. DJH says:

    Offense please score. I don’t want a 5 inning L against the cellar dwellers.

  100. Sheepmeister says:

    Its not going to be a rainout, there is one cell with almost nothing behind it.

  101. Guest says:

    What a frustrating loss if they don’t score in teh top of the fifth and they call it there.

  102. That was an amazing bunt! Russo!!!!!

  103. Two run homer!

    (clap, clap, clapclap, clap)

  104. DJH says:

    Jete just fucked us.

  105. Fuck, unlucky and bad.

  106. Carlosologist says:

    Goddamn you Jeter and your tendencies to GIDP.

  107. baby carlos says:

    perfect…. with that DP, yanks will lose in a rain shortened game.

  108. Kevin says:

    Bunt pop…that’s a new one for gameday

  109. whozat says:

    Fucking…Jeter, damn it.

  110. Good play by Izturis. If he flips it, Jeter may’ve been safe.

  111. To be fair guys, Jeter schorched that ball up the middle.

  112. bexarama says:

    (complains)

    Sorry I am in a very cranky mood tonight, I apologize.

  113. Dela G says:

    man boston treated this guy like a 5 dollar hooker last week

    cmon yanks

  114. Dela G says:

    man i thought swisher had that…

  115. whozat says:

    Damn. Thought he mighta had it.

  116. Come on CC, quick inning.

  117. Dammit, dammit, dammit.

  118. PaulF says:

    These offensive innings are giving me existential woe.

  119. rek4gehrig says:

    Rays killing the Jays again……

  120. Dela G says:

    phew

    good to hear the rain is easing up

  121. Sleepykarl says:

    What is the difference maker in a postponed game and a rain shortened final?

  122. Now I can stop being so negative. With the O’s bullpen back in play, 1 run down is like a 3 run lead to a normal team.

  123. PaulF says:

    When can we feast on Orioles bullpen?

  124. Dela G says:

    great play jetes!

  125. Well, of course he got it, it was to his right.

    /Olney’d

  126. Some much needed pitch count relief the last 5 outs…..and now Kenny is copying me.

  127. CC could go 7 with 2 runs, not a bad start.

  128. PaulF says:

    Nice pitches CC, big boys coming up.

  129. Dela G says:

    boy brad lincoln getting destroyed by the nationals tonight

    4IP 5BB 5ER 6H 1K and one mammoth HR to adam dunn

    he’s pitching in the bottom of the 5th right now

  130. Mike Axisa says:

    CC seems to do this a lot. Works hard and throws a ton of pitches early, then he settles down and before you it he’s in still out there in the 7th.

  131. I think that should be an infield single.

  132. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    The Red Sox paid Lugo to make that error <3

  133. Let’s go, A-Rod. Put a good swing on one.

  134. Ugh, that was ball four!

  135. Dela G says:

    nice job alex!

  136. Angelo says:

    So my dog’s name is Rocky and I just called him Robbie by accident.

  137. baby carlos says:

    Not upset about ARod’s power shortage at all, like this style of hitting.

    Maybe he can rub some mojo to Tex so he can start hitting…

  138. For fuck’s sake, please get a run.

  139. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Ted WilliamsRobinson Cano, you got this!

  140. Dela G says:

    yay the bullpen!

  141. baby carlos says:

    If cano gets out without scoring a run, DP Posada is next…yikes.

  142. I wouldn’t send A-Rod, but that’s just me.

  143. Carlosologist says:

    So when does Cano possibly hitting .400 come into conversation? Too much, even for him?

  144. Angelo says:

    Another Ribbie for Cano

  145. /Baltimore chop’d

  146. poster says:

    (Robinson Cano dressed as a police offiver and holding a megaphone):

    BACK AWAY FROM THE BRIDGE!

  147. Carlosologist says:

    That’s the Yankees triple crown leader right there.

  148. baby carlos says:

    So there is the perfect example of baseball….

    Cano gets the hit on a ball not hit hard and Tex can’t get a hit if the field was empty… even on the balls he drills.

    Good stuff.

  149. Sleepykarl says:

    On the 3-2 foulball, the O’s announcer said that mortal hitters would
    have hacked through it.

  150. Dela G says:

    man i love this orioles defense!

  151. Carlosologist says:

    Holy crap, Baltimore is playing like shit.

  152. baby carlos says:

    When your team sucks, you can always depends on fundamentals.

  153. Too bad for Izturis; he’d been playing nicely on defense to that point.

  154. Carlosologist says:

    An IBB to Granderson to get to Cervelli? I’m not sure of what’s going to happen here.

  155. Dela G says:

    man, watching cervelli’s regression hasn’t been fun

  156. poster says:

    Hey, we’re winning!

    • baby carlos says:

      Sox are losing, Toronto is coming back to earth…

      Predict the Yankees sweep Toronto at the stadium.

  157. Guest says:

    I think the cisco kid is starting to come back down to earth a bit.

  158. Dela G says:

    good inning by the yanks

    now hold it for em zz!

  159. dygg says:

    For some reason, Kevin Russo reminds me of Randy Velarde. Does anyone else see that at all?

  160. Carlosologist says:

    At least we took the lead in that inning.

  161. Hummingbird S. says:

    1 for 9 with RISP, and we’re still winning.

  162. T-Dubs says:

    David Price or Phil Hughes?

    • Jose the Satirist says:

      David Price.

    • Teix is the Man says:

      Price, and it’s not even that close for me, personally.

    • poster says:

      David Price this season, Phil Hughes for the long haul.

    • Carlosologist says:

      Price, due to the fact he’s left-handed. A lefty who throws in the vicinity of the high 90s is still pretty uncommon in the majors. If you want to go by age, I’d take Hughes. He has a full year on Price.

    • Dela G says:

      price and it aint close

    • bexarama says:

      Price because he is a lefty. Though… I thought he had crazy good K and K/BB ratios, but he’s not striking out as many as Hughes per inning and his K/BB ratio is under 2. He’s walked like six tonight already, too.

      I think he’ll be better than Hughes in his career. Not a knock on Hughes, just a comment on how good I think Price will be.

    • Guest says:

      Price. His stuff is absolutely special for a lefty and he seems to be putting everything together this year.

      Hughes is a lot like Moose. Special command, very good stuff. (Not saying Hughes is anywhere near as good as Moose).

      Price is like Randy Johnson. Lefty with incredibly rare stuff, dominant when he harnesses it.
      (DEFINITELY not saying Price is anywhere near the universe of as good as RJ).

  163. BigBlueAL says:

    Russo and his .206/.229/.265 line makes me miss Randy Winn alot.

  164. CC is having a great bad game.

  165. DJH says:

    CC got into a groove after the 4th. It’s nice to see the real CC step up.

  166. That was a fucking waste.

  167. Jose the Satirist says:

    Masterson could get the CG SHO against his old team. It looks like he is going to go back out for the 9th.

  168. cjc says:

    could you be slower

  169. Hummingbird S. says:

    hate those bunts

  170. DJH says:

    Tex with a hit streak!

  171. Carlosologist says:

    Tex is going to have a May 2009 in June 2010 right?

  172. Hummingbird S. says:

    they are really struggling with RISP

  173. Those Mason ads need to stop.

  174. nostra-artist says:

    If the Yanks get Tex, Alex and Robbie all going, they will be impossible for opposing pitchers to deal with.

  175. Hummingbird S. says:

    What the hell? Where was Tex?

  176. DJH says:

    The O’s are busting out the big sticks.

  177. Cano on the march to 400!

  178. Come on, CC. Get one more!

  179. Dela G says:

    great play by cano

    now finish, cc!

  180. Reggie C. says:

    Cano ate some wet dirt and saved us a run. Man is doing everything to will us a win.

  181. nostra-artist says:

    Empty the tank, CC.

  182. Carlosologist says:

    aahhh Jesus I hope CC gets out of this.

  183. DJH says:

    Well this is dramatic.

  184. whozat says:

    What…why are they playing the super mario bros music??

  185. Hummingbird S. says:

    Comon CC, your last batter. Make us proud.

  186. Hopefully, Scott falls for the slider one more time.

  187. 3 errors does that to a team.

  188. Dela G says:

    man zz is still throwin hard

    you got this

  189. PaulF says:

    The Indians just batted around on the sox without making an out.

  190. Dela G says:

    WOOOOO

    FISTPUMP!!!

  191. Come On CC! You can do it!!!!!

  192. Carlosologist says:

    BIG MAN!

  193. Jake H says:

    Thank you C.C.

  194. Hummingbird S. says:

    Very nice CC, very nice!

  195. bexarama says:

    Holy crap. NEVER thought CC would go seven with two runs after the first two innings. Love ya, big fella.

  196. nostra-artist says:

    Si! Si! CC!

  197. Emotion from CC…..I can’t wait until there are robot umpires, robot players and robot fans.

  198. DJH says:

    Yay CC!

  199. whozat says:

    awesome.

  200. This game should be a lesson to all young pitchers. Didn’t have good stuff, gave up runs early along with the lead, settled, got outs where he needed to, and reached back for something extra to exit with the lead intact.

  201. YOu know what’s more embarresing than loosing 13-11 to the Indians? Loosing 10-0 to the Indians.

  202. PaulF says:

    Looks like Gardy’s fine.

  203. If Gardner can play, replace Russo with him, not Posada! You just took out your 6 hitter in a 1-run game!

  204. boogie down says:

    I don’t know about everyone else but I love that Johnnie Walker commercial featuring YS3

  205. Because week stats are so significant.

  206. Dela G says:

    hahahahaha kay you had my heart jump

  207. Carlosologist says:

    Michael Kay needs a new pair of pants.

  208. Dela G says:

    man i dont think grandy really swung on that

  209. bexarama says:

    Kay still can’t judge a fly ball. To be fair, I thought that was gone too, boohoo.

  210. ultimate913 says:

    Will we EVER be able to listen to the game without hearing any commentators? Like what they did a few weeks ago for someone I can’t remember(maybe the Detroit broadcaster who died). It was great. It was a moment of silence. Can’t we get a season of silence or something?

  211. PaulF says:

    Gotta love the complete game shut out for Masterson against his old team.

  212. nostra-artist says:

    Gotta love Brett.

  213. Dela G says:

    cervelli delivers!!

  214. DJH says:

    Big insurance right there.

  215. Angelo says:

    The cisco kid!

  216. Carlosologist says:

    Cervelli!

  217. Andy_C_23 says:

    Hit him right in the arse

  218. Pete says:

    russo is a truly boring player.

  219. bexarama says:

    lol matchups for Russo that don’t even work.

  220. nostra-artist says:

    Frankie loves the Lefties. Must be because he’s from venezuela.

  221. DJH says:

    I hope good Joba is running to the mound right now.

  222. nostra-artist says:

    Holey moley what a catch!

  223. Angelo says:

    Russo = true utility player.

    Once he learns to play shortstop adequetely of course.

  224. Hummingbird S. says:

    damn…awesome play

  225. bexarama says:

    Holy crap Russo! Amazing!

  226. mike c says:

    sick catch, that would have been an ITPHR if that was thames in LF

  227. tatedoggfatha says:

    and once he starts to hit a little as well

  228. nostra-artist says:

    Showboat.

    Johnny Damon makes that play look easy.

  229. Dela G says:

    boy joba getting hit hard

  230. DJH says:

    I wanted to see good Joba but alas I shall not.

  231. Hummingbird S. says:

    Joba not fooling anyone..

  232. Yucky route by Swisher.

  233. bexarama says:

    Oh Joba. Come on.

  234. tatedoggfatha says:

    straight 95 mph fastball will get hit…

  235. Dela G says:

    looks like we’re gettin the 93-94mph joba tonight

  236. Dela G says:

    moore looks like he’s 30

  237. Joba’s slider might be better than his fastball.

  238. Nice recovery, Joba.

  239. Jose the Satirist says:

    Haha. Great strike call.

  240. nostra-artist says:

    Whew!

  241. Uhhh, he threw his slider to K the guy Kenny.

  242. DJH says:

    That was nerve racking but good job not giving up anything.

    • Hard to believe he only allowed one baserunner.

      • bexarama says:

        I feel like we’re always holding our breath with Joba though, so that’s why it was so “OH GOD!!!!”

        That was a rare non-ridiculously bad or ridiculously good inning. Normally he’s either HORRIBLE or TOTALLY AMAZING. He was pretty bad for the first two batters, then fine.

  243. “gets his share of walks”
    “decent obp”
    wow, it’s like they don’t know Swisher has one of the best walk rates and obp’s in the league.

  244. CNight_UP says:

    Harold Reynolds just claimed Joba’s getting hit so hard because the Yankees overexposed him as a starter….

    (shakes head)

  245. Angelo says:

    I feel bad for Tex’s BABIP

  246. DJH says:

    Tex can’t buy a hit.

  247. Augustus Minimus says:

    err..anyone thinks we need bullpen help, someone who can take over 8th inning role other than Joba.

  248. Dela G says:

    man that looked foul

  249. It’s amazing, but I’m pretty sure that’s Cano’s first IBB this year.

  250. COme on guys, that was verrrry close. These umps aren’t gods.

  251. JobaWockeeZ says:

    A rare walk and it had to be a IBB.

  252. Ivan says:

    Wow is it me or does Camden Yards looks and sounds like a minor league ball park?

  253. Augustus Minimus says:

    watching the Milwaukee game, Craig Counsell looks nice in Yankee uniform in place of Pena

  254. Augustus Minimus says:

    the incomparable Mo makes it looks so easy !!!

  255. Ivan says:

    Wow 10 pitches for the Save from Mo…

  256. That ball looked crushed, I guess he got under it. Anyway, GAME OVER, YANKEES WIN, THEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIIIIIIN!!!!!

  257. DJH says:

    Mo was filthy that inning.

  258. bexarama says:

    I’m considerably less cranky than I was earlier :D

  259. Augustus Minimus says:

    just read the Lance Berkman trade rumor, wouldn’t Paul Konerko be better fit?

  260. Angelo says:

    The comments stopped running as soon as the game ended. Odd.

  261. JobaWockeeZ says:

    I’m stupid but do the Yanks have to wait for the international signing period to sign someone like Rafael DePaula? Or can they sign him now for some reason but others have to be signed after the period starts?

    • Johan Iz My Brohan says:

      They can come to an agreement before the IFA signing period, but that doesn’t 100% mean that he would sign with the Yankees when it starts.

  262. Does Girardi bat Cano and Mournoe 3-4 in the ASG?

  263. Augustus Minimus says:

    i read that in March that yanks were interested, but rumor has he is actually 38.

  264. Remember when we all wanted a rainout?

    /sure this comment has been made but not checking’d

    • poster says:

      That would be me.

      So I’m wrong for once in my life. It builds character.

      • bexarama says:

        Heh. Me too. I was in a verrrry cranky mood earlier because a. the Yankees looked terrible; b. I was working on THE WORST JOB APPLICATION EVER; c. personal stuff. Obviously I’m now glad that didn’t happen.

  265. poster says:

    This Rivera kid has really turned it around after that rough patch. Early yet, but I like what I see.
