Game 61: Houston, you have a problem

The Astros are bad, like really really bad. As a team they’re hitting .237-.290-.339, which is like having nine Randy Winn‘s in the lineup. It’s that bad. Houston’s rotation is sneaky good, but it’s just not enough to overcome that putrid lineup. I’m sure former ‘Stro Andy Pettitte is glad he decided to come back to the Yankees when he did.

Here’s the tonight’s lineup…

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

And on the mound, Andrew Pettitte.

Make sure you check out all the injury updates from earlier in case you missed them. The game starts at 7:05pm ET, and can be seen on YES. Enjoy.

    Those team numbers can’t be right, can they?

  • mike c

    peñalized

    • mike c

      btw andy pettitte has 199 wins with the yankees

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      I thought that was refering to what happened to Mexico today against South Africa. Dumb me.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Mike, I think you made all the girls who come on here throw up in their mouth with that picture of Pettitte in an Astros uniform. AT LEAST THEY SHOULD BE SICK.

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      I still can’t see him in an Astros uniform without being all “noooo he’s ours stupid Texas” (sorry to those of you from Texas). This picture is very FAAAAAACE though, so…

        ha i used to help “baby sit” his children in a deer park camp 5 years ago, and he’s a great guy.

        • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

          What what WHAAAAAT you can’t just drop these facts on me like this man!!

          • Andy in Sunny Daytona

            I’m concerned on why baby sit is in quotations.

            • Tom Zig

              He actually sat on babies

            if i wasn’t too old for the camp to be a counselor, i would def keep on doing it :p

  • Ivan

    Wow a .237-.290-.339 isn’t just bad, that’s “Hide the Women and Children” Bad, YIKES!!!!

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      Do they have a hidden “Houston Astros Watch” up here on RAB somewhere?

    Carlos Lee: Most underrated bad contract in baseball?

    • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

      it is a god awful contract. Vernon wells still has him beat, but he’s actually having a good season so far

    • Johnny

      Agreed. Do you want to take this donkey off our hands too?

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    man since i’m in houston, i have to watch the houston broadcast

    i don’t like the houston broadcasters because they are so boring and overly homerish

  • Pat D

    Quick everyone, I need answers. I’ll miss the game tonight, being at work and all. But I might miss tomorrow’s game too. My sister wants me to go to my brother-in-law’s birthday party tomorrow. Unfortunately, said part is going to be in NE Philadelphia, which means a round trip of about 3 hours in the car. Plus, I’d have to go with my parents.

    I’m thinking, considering my work week is fairly mentally exhausting and I’d actually like to spend my weekends relaxing, I should stay at home and watch the game. What say everyone?

    • Jose the Satirist

      Go to the store and pick up a bottle of José Cuervo Reserva de la Familia. Then order hookers. Party all night and call your brother-in-law while in a drunken stupor to wish him a happy birthday.

      • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

        TSJC, is that you?

      • Andy in Sunny Daytona

        Agreed. If your BIL can’t understand that you want to stay home alone and watch a game, then he should have his “guy card” revoked.

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    the astros have jason michaels as DH

    this should be fun

        oh darn

  • bonestock94

    ugh, ball 4

  • forensicnucchem

    34 pitches and 3 runs. Not so bad for the first inning. :-)

  • Hummingbird S.

    Pretty good inning! 3 runs should be more than enough for Andy tonight

  • Trish

    Is that Chevy Chase in the front row? It looks like him.

  • Paul Canales

    Wow, 3,000 innings. That’s sweet. Thanks for the insight Kay.

    how the hell was pete munro part of the 6 pitcher no-hitter. that guy was terrible

    • Jose the Satirist

      He had pretty good results the second half of that year. 2.79 ERA in 19.1 IP from the day of the no-hitter to the end of the year.

    damn bloops

    good god wtf?

    manzella is horrible

  • Paul Canales

    ugggh

  • forensicnucchem

    Well, that sucked.

  • Doc Pollo

    Did anybody else notice that Jeter is one hit away from 3000 for his career?

    2824 (regular season) + 175 (post-season) = 2999

  • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

    Oh nos :( It’s okay, he locks it down after this.

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    finally, andy

    now the offense needs to get more runs

  • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

    I blame all of you who said he had no-hit stuff in the first inning sob sob.

    • forensicnucchem

      The Astros have been hitting better in recent weeks. Certainly not intimidating or anything, but better than their season line shows. Still some potential danger there.

      • forensicnucchem

        Though Manzella shouldn’t be part of that. Oh well.

      • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

        Oh I don’t think they’re as bad as people are saying. But whenever people make declarations after one inning – eeek.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

    Russo looked safe there

    • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

      Upon further review, maybe not

  • Hummingbird S.

    looked safe

  • boogie down

    BARELY safe… sucks, but can’t blame the ump for that.

    • Jose the Satirist

      I’d say he was out. Foot wasn’t completely down when the ball was in the glove.

      • boogie down

        Hm, I thought the ball wasn’t quite in the glove when his foot was down. lol

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    wow jetes…

    yikes

  • Hummingbird S.

    jeter, disgusting AB

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    aight guys, this is brett effing meyers

    pound him plz

  • forensicnucchem

    Can we go back to the first inning instead? I didn’t like that second inning.

  • forensicnucchem

    Well, the Red Sox game is over already (theoretically). Thanks Jamie Moyer.

    I just got home, has Paul O’Neill talked about his nephew being drafted by the Yankees?

    • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

      Yeah, but Kay brought it up

    • forensicnucchem

      Kay brought it up for him, and then they did talk about it a bit.

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

      Yes, said he’s going to school. Hurt his shoulder right before the draft, needs/had surgery.

      • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

        Cool. Thanks for the answers ya’ll.

    • boogie down

      Yeah, he and Kay discussed it. O’Neill said his nephew’s likely to head off to college at UMich since he was a 42nd round pick. He also said his nephew had shoulder surgery just before the draft, so his stock may have fallen a bit b/c of that.

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    man bourn looks like andy’s biotch

    • forensicnucchem

      Bourn hits .194 vs. lefties. And it shows.

      • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

        he’s hurting my fantasy team this year. i expected much more from him this season

    • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

      much better inning

  • forensicnucchem

    So, Andy can school the top of the order but the bottom of the order does the damage. That’s just not right.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Didn’t in the past Roy Oswalt say that he never wanted to play in New York?

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      I think he did… but he apparently changed his mind. IIRC, he also talked crap about A-Rod, saying something like that we shouldn’t count any of his records. Do you want to take away your 2005 pennant because Clemens and Pettitte played such a huge role there?

    • boogie down

      I think I remember hearing that but with the combination of his age and the remainder of his contract, he doesn’t have too many options. Wanting to go to a contender further shortens the list of possible destinations, so he pretty much has to take what he can get.

      And the Red Sox up 8-0 on the Phillies.

      Big scoring early…

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

      Boston housed Jamie Moyer. Shortest start for him since 1998.

      • forensicnucchem

        You see his career numbers against the Sox? 6-12 record with a 6.5+ ERA. Never had a chance.

      • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

        if you look at the scoring summary, it seems symmetrical in the way the scored. pedroia gets on, vmart doubles him home, ortiz doubles vmart home.

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

    Trivia: Phil Nevin.

    • boogie down

      What was the question? Was it who was drafted first overall the year the Yanks picked Jeter at #6?

      -Actually, I think it had to have been the question — now that I think about it, Nevin was drafted by the Astros

      • Kevin

        I’m sure it was that.
        Unless, of course, it was “Who was Ryan Klesko’s favorite drinking buddy?”

        • boogie down

          hahaha, that would’ve been an all-time trivia question. Maybe they could’ve added that as a hint.

        • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

          In my opinion, boxing is always a terrible idea. Not a fan at all.

        • Accent Shallow

          Agreed. Nothing other than baseball should happen in the stadium in season, it’s not like they need the money.

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

            If the extra money allows then to sign both Cliff Lee AND Carl Crawford, they could do whatever the hell they want there. I’m not complaining.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

    The Astros used to have a lot of “pride” back in the day.

  • baby carlos

    Hunter Pence… with that first name, I wonder if his parents even liked him.

    • Reggie C.

      He’s a big dude. I’m sure he didnt catch any middle school hell for it.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

    Is Swisher trying to quit dip? I just noticed him chewing gum.

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      His face when he caught the ball was so funny.

      • http://yanksgoyard.com Andy_C_23

        Definitely. Swish Dog cracks me up on the reg.

    good god bourn that was sick

  • forensicnucchem

    I don’t know if I should be more frustrated that Myers finished seven innings against the Yanks (especially given that first inning) or more relieved that they at least have 4 runs given the C lineup out there.

  • forensicnucchem

    Jeter, that’s a killer…

  • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

    Oh dear.

  • baby carlos

    bad move… hope this move doesn’t bite joe in the ass

  • DJH

    This game is in Joba’s hands now. I’m very scared.

  • JobaTheHeat62

    oh I am not a fan of this call to the bullpen..come on Joba whip some ass

  • baby carlos

    Berkman take Joba deep?

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Oh so you’re an Astros fan?

      • baby carlos

        Huh? No Yankees.

        • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

          My point

          _____

          Your head.

          O:S from now on.

          • baby carlos

            how is your point over my head? You asked a question which did not make a point.

            • poster

              No, his question very much made a point. He was pointing out that there was no reason for a Yankee fan to predict that the Yankees would blow the lead, and concluded, since we were playing the Astros, that you were an Astros fan. The post went over your head.

              • FIPster Doofus

                “Berkman take Joba deep?” is not a prediction; it’s a question.

                • poster

                  It was a question that implied an answer in the positive. If you read baby carlos’s posts you’d know this because he hates Joba (I’m not trying to berate you for not reading every single one of baby carlos’s comments, but nevertheless I think that it’s important to understand where this comment was coming from).

                  • FIPster Doofus

                    Baby Carlos seems pretty pessimistic, but I can’t get on him for his Berkman/Joba post at all. Doesn’t really matter either way, I guess, as Joba got Berkman and the Yanks won :)

                    • poster

                      True; but what was really the point in asking IF Berkman would take Joba deep if he didn’t think it would happen.

              • Robert Geddes

                Poster – According to you, Matt Imbrogno’s post “concluded” that baby carlos is an Astros fan. baby carlos, realizing Matt’s insinuation, responded that he is a Yankee fan. So how did the post go over his head? It’s HARD to get schooled by baby carlos, congrats.

                • poster

                  See, this if funny because I didn’t even write the “over his head” post, I just clarified it. What he didn’t get was that it was a sarcastic insult (hey, it was).

                  It’s hard to get schooled by yourself, congrats.

                  • Robert Geddes

                    when did you realize it was a “sarcastic insult”? In your earlier post you indicated that Matt “concluded” baby carlos was an Astros fan.

    • baby carlos

      Joba got lucky… bad call.

      • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

        he obviously swung

        • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

          well obvious in my mind

          • poster

            No, it was a swing.

    Oh snap. Get him, Joba. Get him.

    I’d love to see a changeup here.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      That’ll do.

    good work Joba!

    I don’t think he went but I’ll take it!

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      Nah, he did go.

  • forensicnucchem

    Whew

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Jorge and the ball boy definitely thought he went, haha.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Tsk tsk, Curtis.

  • Hummingbird S.

    ball’s not carrying tonight

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Damn, I thought that was getting out. Oh well.

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    thought that was gone

  • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

    Thought that Tex hit was gooooone but I’ve thought like four Houston hits were goooone too.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      I thought the one Swish caught up against the wall was gone.

      • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

        Yep. And there was one Russo caught in the same inning I believe that gave me even more of a heart attack.

        • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

          Yeah, it was the batter right before Swisher.

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    boy mo has really been missing his spots this year

    • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

      well missing more than usual

    Kay loves the word “nip” or any variation thereof.

  • forensicnucchem

    Wow, that was outside.

    • kunaldo

      how dare you.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    If it’s not Mo on the mound, that’s a ball.

  • forensicnucchem

    Woohoo!!!

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Oh peace, Jason. His cutter was mooooooooving tonight.

  • http://www.twitter.com/stophamm3rtime Dela G

    YANKEES WIN!

  • forensicnucchem

    Two hours and 20 minutes. Wow.

    • thurdonpaul

      yeah, thats what i was thinking too.

      • forensicnucchem

        I never understood though why people love short games. If you love baseball, wouldn’t you want to watch more of it, which would be somewhat longer games? I know there’s a point where it’s just too much or if the game is ugly, but still…

        • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

          Short games, long games, I love ‘em all. I just like baseball. Except if the Yankees are losing. ;P

          • thurdonpaul

            bexy, i agree. your guy Andy did ok tonight too :)

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      This makes me happy.

    Woohoo Yankees! Congrats on #200 with the Yankees Andy :D

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    So that guy Montero has 2 doubles in tonights game.

    I think the Montero Watch is broken! It’s supposed to be cursing players… not helping them!

  • forensicnucchem

    1.5 games out, 2 innings away from 1 game out. Seems like a long time since it’s been that close.

  • poster

    You guys need to stop stressing every time Mo pitches. Seriously. If I’d been following the thread I’d think he pitched out of a bases loaded, nobody out jam.

    • forensicnucchem

      I had no worries with Mo. Slight concern with Joba’s spot because lately it seems like everything against him is being hit hard. Just gotta hope he gets on a roll soon.

    • baby carlos

      Um on your earlier comment about the “over my head”. Again, my post was a question, NOT a statement. I was unaware in the world of RAB blog that a question equates to a statement for or against the Yankees.

      Fascinating how much I learn each time I read the in game threads.

      • poster

        I love how you act like learning is a bad thing.

        • baby carlos

          See again, misunderstanding another comment. So now I say I am fascinated by how much I learn and you interpret that as a bad thing.

          Do you really understand English, grammar, and language?

          • poster

            Okaaay I’m out.

            If you weren’t being sarcastic the comment above me wasn’t very insulting.

            Good day to you sir.

    Old, but still awesome and appropriate considering the pounding they took today:

    No matter who wins tonight’s Celtics/Lakers game, Hoss sure hopes we can make fun of Philadelphia fans again. 6:58 PM Jun 10th via web

    Gotta love Hoss.
