Game 80: In which the Yankees will try to win 0 to -1

By

Photo Credit: Seth Wenig, AP

Can the Yankees score a run? What about more than one? Can Andy Pettitte throw nine innings with a shaky bullpen behind him and Mariano Rivera having pitched in each of the last two days? Can a Yankee catcher stop a ball in the dirt, maybe even throw a baserunner out? This, and more, will be answered on this beautiful New York afternoon.

Here’s the starting nine…

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

And on the mound: Pettitte, Andrew Eugene.

Even though it’s Saturday, this one’s not a FOX game, thankfully. First pitch is set for 1:05pm ET, and can be seen on YES. Try not to pull your hair out.

  1. If I pull any more hair out, I’ll go bald.

  2. bexarama says:

    Worst text poll ever.

  3. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    These day games suck….at least when I’m at work.

  4. Jose the Satirist says:

    “maybe even throw a baserunner out?”

    I’m hopeful. They are down to 16.7% CS as a team.

  5. El Maquinito is 3-4 (so far), and with two innings left may get another AB.

    Just another day of the .459 average!

    (There’s also another PB. And I should probably shut up before this gets old)

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

      All his PB’s have been with a LHer on the mound.

    • Jose the Satirist says:

      I’m really rooting for Sanchez. I used to be hoping for him to be signed by the Yankees. Then I was waiting for him to be in the minors. Now I’m hoping he can just keep continuing his success.

  6. matt montero says:

    It’s gonna be interesting to watch the YES guys try to talk about American history from the poll

  7. phughesisgod says:

    So you mean, I dont have to listen to Buck and McCarver today? CLUTCH! My head can survive another day!

  8. phughesisgod says:

    Anyone else miss the days when YES showed games from the Yankees farm system on off days or when the Yankees game was earlier or later in the day? I mean, I would love to watch some Tampa, Trenton and Scranton games, maybe throw alittle Charleston, SI and GCL in there…

    • Cecala says:

      I would really love to see a GCL game, that team looks awesome.

    • JPK says:

      they used to just show a few Clipper games when they had ZERO prospects there.
      I think part of the reason they don’t show like showing the minor league games is they don’t want to get the fan base too high or too low on any given prospect based on a few random games. The other obvious reasons are the production costs of broadcasting from stadiums and parks that are not set up for it.
      I wish they would put them on more especially on off days.

  9. Cecala says:

    Is it just me or have Buck and McCarver become more tolerable? They don’t irk me as much as they used to. Then again it could be due to the more ESPN games or the horrible umpiring endured this season.

  10. bexarama says:

    My parents just got HD TV yesterday. Hello Andy Pettitte in HD.

  11. Mike Axisa says:

    2-0 fastball to Bautista? You deserve it, Andy.

  12. JPK says:

    how does Cito Gaston get away with putting a lineup together that has Nick Green DHing and John McDonald in LF????? Maybe he is trying to trick the Yankees into thinking it’s still interleague play.

  13. Poopy Pants says:

    BUT THEY STILL HAVE TEH BEST RECURD IN THE LEEGE!!!

    But they are also 2 games from not even being the wild card team…and they’re spending more than anyone.

    • bonestock94 says:

      The talent is there, the “sky is falling” view of things is dumb with this roster. Playing like shit and having the best record in the league is great, imagine when they, you know, play to their full potential.

  14. bonestock94 says:

    Can someone give me an educated assessment of Bautista? I look at his career stats and scratch my head…

    • Jose the Satirist says:

      His power has come out of nowhere. He claimed he overhauled his swing in March of this year. He no longer feels like he is always behind, he goes up there in attack mode.

      • Pat D says:

        It’s fluky. Basically he’s Gorman Thomas or Rob Deer or any other of those all or nothing guys.

        And, no, Adam Dunn is better.

  15. bexarama says:

    Where did that miss. ;_;

  16. Pat D says:

    I’m not sure I can take subpar play today. I might decide doing yard work in upper 80 degree temperatures is more appealing.

  17. BigBlueAL says:

    Great start to this game.

  18. Pat D says:

    Yikes, the outfield looks tremendously horrible.

    Maybe these extra-cirruclar activities are not a good idea. Oh, wait, that’s right, they’ll make money.

  19. camilo gerardo says:

    i thought we were screwed there. nice catch huff, man

  20. Pat D says:

    Huffman might have saved a couple of runs after almost costing a couple of runs.

  21. Dela G says:

    man i turn on the game and see the yanks down already 2-0? o_O

  22. BigBlueAL says:

    Huffman providing the spark!!!!

  23. Ivan says:

    NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. A-Rod's Hip says:

    great play Huffman!!

  25. JPK says:

    great recovery, Huffman is a good athlete for a big guy

  26. Pat D says:

    “Gets out of it by just allowing 2 runs.”

    Because when you make that statement, it makes it sound…ok?

  27. Ivan says:

    Ok Guys, if u see a fastball, Crush it!!!!

  28. JPK says:

    not sure what the #’s say but I haven’t been a big fan of DHing Swisher. Would rather see Granderson get a day off.

  29. Pat D says:

    Any day now, Teix.

  30. Jimmy says:

    Never seen a team sit on a fastball and a change at the same time. Yankees have yet to make an adjustment all year.

  31. Mike Axisa says:

    0 for 23 with RISP. I mean, you’d think ONE ball would dunk in by accident in that time.

    • Ivan says:

      What are the chances of that like seriously.

    • Pat D says:

      You’d think that.

      But I’m starting to think that it’s just further proof that everything is random and nothing can be counted to change just because it “should.”

  32. Dela G says:

    lol why the heck do you swing at that, alex?

  33. Pat D says:

    In other news, today is the 147th anniversary of Pickett’s Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg.

    But the re-enactment is tomorrow.

  34. bexarama says:

    0/23, ewwwww. At least there’s regression to the mean…?

  35. Pat D says:

    That is a terrible poll question. First of all, Adams, Franklin and Jefferson shouldn’t be on the list because they didn’t fight any battles.

    The other choices should be people like Marquis de Lafayette, Benedict Arnold (yes, really, he was the hero of Saratoga), the foreign guy who trained the army who’s name is escaping me, and any other number of generals who actually devised battle plans and fought.

    And, yea, what does this have to do with baseball?

  36. A-Rod's Hip says:

    i hope we can score more than Toronto this game

  37. Mike Axisa says:

    Fudgie The Whale > Cookie Puss >>> Cookie O’Puss

    Carvel rules.

  38. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Ugh, don’t ever do that again, Kay.

  39. Mike HC says:

    I don’t know who ended up winning that Fourth of July contest, but after reading the entries, if Jose the Satirist didn’t win, it would have been highway robbery.

  40. baby carlos says:

    Good Grief…. turn on the game read the thread and 2-0 already. This is like one of those USA Network movie marathons where you see the same show over and over and over….

    I can’t wait for us to play real teams like Boston and Tampa – we can at least beat them.

    well good luck yankees, papers will have a field day with you tomorrow if you drop out of first place – first headline PANICK STRIKES NYC AREA ON 4TH WEEKEND (yankees squander 1st place lead) – My money is on the Post using that headline.

  41. Pat D says:

    Robbie’s been hurting my fantasy team big time this week.

  42. A-Rod's Hip says:

    nice atbat for Robbie

  43. Pat D says:

    Wow, anyone else running…

  44. A-Rod's Hip says:

    so who will be the magical Yankee to snap the RISP streak???

  45. Mike Axisa says:

    That ball played the shit out of Bautista. That would have been a triple for all non-38-year-old catchers.

  46. Pat D says:

    Can anyone verify if Singleton is telling the truth on that memory?

  47. A-Rod's Hip says:

    good contact for Curtis.. screw you BABIP!!

  48. SF Yanks says:

    Are they nearing an o-fer record with RISP?

  49. Mike Axisa says:

    I would assume Huffman goes down for Thames. You can’t have THREE outfielders, one infielder, and one catcher on the bench.

  50. Mike HC says:

    Tex’s career pre all star break triple slash: .271/.365 /.501

    This years pre break triple slash: .232/ .345/ .409

    I put this offensive slump on Tex’s shoulders. He has gotten a pass because he always slumps in the beginning of the year, but never anywhere even close to this. It is getting to the point where he is a legit problem and the offense is just not the same with him hitting like this.

    • Mike Axisa says:

      A slump like this isn’t one player’s fault.

      • Mike HC says:

        Agreed for sure. But I feel like Cano has put his time in carrying this team. ARod has been has had his moments and a great May. Swisher has been mashing. Jeter and Jorge have done their part as well (although Jeter could surely pick it up.

        I just feel like this was the time, going into the break, for Tex to carry this team. Its was turn and he is simply just not heating up.

      • Mike HC says:

        If Tex was having a “normal” year for him, I don’t think we are in this slump. My opinion.

        • Angelo says:

          So everyone else is suddenly playing a lot better if Tex was having a more productive year?

          How does that make sense? Yeah, sure Tex hasn’t really heated up and tore the cover off of the ball, but a slumping team is never one player’s fault like Axisa said.

          This whole thing isn’t Tex’s fault. Burnett was pitching horribly for a while. The bullpen still needs to get it together. And there are many other problems besides Tex.

          Tex doesn’t suddenly solve all of this even if he tries to carry the offense. It helps, but it doesn’t guarantee wins.

          • Mike HC says:

            Yea, of course it is a team effort. I don’t literally mean Tex is the only reason for the slump. But my point is that every other part of the team (maybe minus the set up men) have had their stretches of carrying the team, especially starting pitching. I think it is Tex’s job to carry this offense at points. He has yet to do it.

            And as I am writing this, Tex gets a big hit, and boom, no more offensive struggle. Like I said, ha.

  51. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Woo, more squandered opportunities.

  52. Dela G says:

    that changeup is filth

  53. bonestock94 says:

    It’s gone from enraging to entertainingly bad.

  54. bexarama says:

    Yankees you are making me sad right now.

  55. Pat D says:

    I think this 3D shit needs to end.

  56. Jimmy says:

    Were the Phillies bad for over a month like the Yankees have been?

  57. Pat D says:

    Kay just stole my “consistently inconsistent” phrase. I should sue him.

  58. Ivan says:

    All im going to say is this, the Yankees offense (or the entire team) is not playing well, however, we all know their going to be peaks and valleys in a 162 game season and we all know it’s going to be a dog fight in AL East, because after all nobody is pulling away from the division. The Yankees are just weathering the storm of suckitude right now.

    /Yankee Fan trying to be optimistic’d

  59. Pat D says:

    Does anyone still care about the Predator “franchise?”

  60. Mike Axisa says:

    Now, should Brett steal despite the inevitable 0-for-3 with RISP, or stay on first and hope for a two run homer?

  61. A-Rod's Hip says:

    nice hit for Gardy.. baserunners every inning so far..

    *twittles thumbs*

  62. ARX says:

    BAH…so close.

  63. A-Rod's Hip says:

    if Swisher bunts……………………………..

  64. Reggie C. says:

    Is Eric Bedard confirmed to be pitch against the Yankees in Seattle along with Lee and Felix too?

    Damn. We’re gonna get swept.

  65. DJH says:

    Can we break out here?

  66. A-Rod's Hip says:

    *face palm*

  67. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Ugh, bunting? Can we not give up outs right now?

  68. SF Yanks says:

    Alright, now’s the time to break out of this shit. Gardner and Jete both on with no out and the heart coming up. Regression is just too damn likely to keep this up.

  69. Pat D says:

    Woo hoo. Hit with RISP. But no freaking run!!!

  70. Mike Axisa says:

    A hit with RISP!

    Bases loaded, no outs. We saw this movie in the 3rd inning yesterday … alternate ending maybe?

  71. ARX says:

    We have to score here…right!? Can’t strand the bases loaded again…RIGHT??

  72. bexarama says:

    A hit with RISP but they can’t score.

    Oooof course.

  73. DJH says:

    Even a base hit with RISP doesn’t score anybody.

  74. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    It’s about time!

  75. ARX says:

    YES! RUNS!!! Thank you Tex

  76. Dela G says:

    woohoo texy’s back!!

  77. A-Rod's Hip says:

    about fuckin time (let’s keep count of how many of these posts there are. LOL )

  78. Reggie C. says:

    Teixeira actually got a hit off JC Romero? Borderline Miracle.

  79. Pat D says:

    Teix got my message.

    Zing!

  80. Ivan says:

    Lets go offense!!!

  81. DJH says:

    Tex! Finally some runs!!

  82. Mike HC says:

    ARods turn now

  83. bexarama says:

    wh-what was that??? There were like guys on base and we hit the ball and they crossed home plate I don’t get it?!?!??!?!

  84. Angelo says:

    It’s about time…

  85. ARX says:

    ….OK. We’ll take it.

  86. Little Bill says:

    “2-0? Game over.” – Mike Axisa in the top of the 1st inning for the best offense in the league.

  87. Dela G says:

    damn alex has lost a lot of speed

    2007 a-rod beats that throw

  88. Reggie C. says:

    Arod shouldnt get the rbi on that one, right? Error on Romero?

  89. DJH says:

    We actually got a break!

  90. bonestock94 says:

    wooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  91. SF Yanks says:

    This I like.

  92. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Well, good bye RISP slump.

    • Pat D says:

      Hopefully. It is, after all, just one inning.

      I’m liking the fact they’ve had some hard hit balls off Romero more than anything else.

  93. Dela G says:

    great job cano

  94. Mike HC says:

    And the RISP avg correction. Gotta love it

  95. ARX says:

    Hey look its the Yankee offense. Hope they enjoyed their vacation, they certainly look refreshed.

  96. Pat D says:

    Romero is pissing on the mound.

  97. ARX says:

    Holy shit, 62 pitches…Blue Jays bullpen, get your affairs in order.

  98. ARX says:

    Heh. Too bad its Huffman next.

  99. Dela G says:

    wow that 1st base umpire has a damn good eye

    what a great call

  100. Dela G says:

    wow what a collapse

    more runs please

  101. Pat D says:

    Yikes.

  102. Jimmy says:

    Thanks for hitting Huffman

  103. bexarama says:

    That looked painful.

  104. ARX says:

    Bases clearing triple?

  105. ARX says:

    OMFG!!!!!!!!!

  106. Jimmy says:

    BG GRAND SLAM!!!

  107. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Gardy!

  108. Accent Shallow says:

    Man, the look on Romero’s face.

    Incredible.

  109. Zooboy says:

    A Grit-slam!!!!

  110. Mike HC says:

    wowowowowowowowowwowowowo

    Happy I didn’t give up on this offense to do yard work, ha.

  111. Ivan says:

    GARDNER!!!!!!!!

  112. Pat D says:

    I predicted that.

  113. Angelo says:

    Grandslam by the Gritster!

  114. A-Rod's Hip says:

    THE GARDY MAN CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  115. bexarama says:

    I don’t believe… what I just saw…

  116. Jack says:

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    *breathes*

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  117. Poopy Pants says:

    wow!

  118. Chip says:

    GRITGASM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  119. Adam says:

    Collectively off the ledge yet?

  120. Pat D says:

    Wow, the somewhat cocky trot to first base. Love it.

  121. ARX says:

    I almost fell out of my chair, I’m laughing so hard right now

  122. bexarama says:

    Brett Gardner now has more home runs than American League Home Run Derby vote leader Joe Mauer.

    I am still, like, shaking. Did that really just happen O_O

  123. Poopy Pants says:

    Dooes anyone think Sterling was panicking during the at-bat to come up with a terrible Gardner GS call?

  124. j says:

    gardner has NO power.

  125. zzzzzz says:

    so ok, brett no power gardner hits a grand slam after about 2 years of playing time, but derek jeter went like 12 years before hitting his? what gives?

    unreal.

  126. A-Rod's Hip says:

    7 runs in previous 40 innings

    8 runs in the 3rd inning!!!

  127. ShuutoHeat (GGBG > DP) says:

    Okay seriously, that’s not fair… I went to the bathroom to drop one and Gardy hits a grand slam.

  128. Ivan says:

    I guess the yankees got tired of RAB bitching about the offense uh.

  129. Adam says:

    Also, that was a downright Damon-esque swing and dinger.

  130. Sean C says:

    I’m kinda disappointed… I wanted the inside the park grand slam. Brett gave up on his grit.

  131. Adam says:

    Umm was Kenny just describing David Cone’s exploits in the Mets’ bullpen or the Yankees’ offense?: “The pressure was building up and it just exploded.”

  132. Angelo says:

    How many grandslams do the Yankees have this year?

  133. Pat D says:

    Jeez, Derek, get a friggin’ hit!

    You want to limp to 3000?

  134. Mike HC says:

    Wait, according to Kay, Gardner also can hit homeruns if he really wants to, but chooses not to?

  135. Frigidevil says:

    If I didn’t see it for myself i wouldn’t have beleived my phone. Britt? PRISINT!

  136. Jake H says:

    Can’t complain when Gardner hits a hr. Now Andy just needs to finish them off.

    • ShuutoHeat (GGBG > DP) says:

      That is if he still remembers how to pitch after sitting in the dug out for so long.

  137. Zooboy says:

    Sterling: “Gardner started it with a single, and climaxed it with a grandslam.” Was he talking about baseball? (Blushes.)

  138. SouthernYankeeFan says:

    was gardners grandy a cheepie?

  139. Jimmy says:

    Andy is like Brah I need to pitch

  140. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Andy’s gotta be rotting away on the bench.

  141. Jimmy says:

    Man what if Tex takes a walk then A-Rod hits another slam this inning?

  142. Dela G says:

    oooooh cmon a-rod slam??!!?@((*??

  143. Chip says:

    One more ball and then grand slam numero dos for the inning?

  144. Mike Axisa says:

    Don’t do it Alex. Don’t be mean Alex…

  145. ARX says:

    OK A-Rod, you gonna let Gardner show you up? You have more power than that pipsqueak, right?

  146. ARX says:

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  147. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Hey, come on, A-Rod totally planned that.

  148. Pat D says:

    Oh, you have gotta be effing kidding me.

  149. A-Rod's Hip says:

    A-Rod’s popups FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  150. whozat says:

    Is this a little league game??

  151. Pat D says:

    That has to be an error.

  152. zzzzzz says:

    weirdest. inning. EVER.

  153. Zooboy says:

    No fair: A-Rod yelled “HA!”

  154. Ivan says:

    Wow, Tallet was lucky there. A-Rod had like 3 very good swings there in that AB.

  155. Pat D says:

    He totally Enrique Wilson’d that.

    The Blue Jays will immediately trade for Raul Mondesi after this game.

  156. whozat says:

    Ales just missed three good pitches to hit in that AB. He’s kinda gotta do better than that…

  157. Chip says:

    O man, I needed this

  158. ARX says:

    Did we even score 11 runs this whole WEEK before this inning? Good grief this is the craziest inning in recent memory.

  159. whozat says:

    Ahhhhh…well struck ball, Robbie

  160. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Only eleven runs? Scrub offense.

  161. bexarama says:

    Luis Castillo got traded to the Blue Jays and is now an outfielder?

    • Pat D says:

      No! No! My comment was funnier! I’m not taking this lying down!

    • Carlosologoist in Humid Ass Colombia says:

      Have you been hanging around a Mets fan for too long? That´s a dream scenario for them.

      • Pat D says:

        Some guy called Francesa about a week ago and said Carlos Beltran won’t help them much and that he’ll disrupt what they have going.

  162. ShuutoHeat (GGBG > DP) says:

    BJs have been out in the sun for too long.

  163. ShuutoHeat (GGBG > DP) says:

    So yeah, eye black REALLLY helps with the sun… put some SHADES ON!!!

  164. Jake H says:

    Hopefully the offense now will start clicking. They needed this game.

  165. Ivan says:

    Most Runs in a inning since 05? Isn’t that the game where when Pinella was managing, if you read his lips he said “Why Don’t you put it on a fucking tee” lol…

  166. Dela G says:

    that was a HIGH-Larious inning of baseball

  167. Jimmy says:

    nice shut down inning

  168. Pat D says:

    Trivia answer: Brian Roberts/Miguel Tejada and Jeff Kent/Rich Aurilia.

  169. I Voted for Kodos says:

    I stepped out for a moment to give a buddy a hand as the Yankees were just coming to bat. 35 minutesish later I came back to see Cano line out to right. I assumed several innings had gone by, until I looked at the score.

    That was awesome.

  170. Dave says:

    Who wants more runs? This guy.

  171. bonestock94 says:

    So, I missed the greatest inning ever grocery shopping. Bummer.

  172. baby carlos says:

    Bloody hell… the one day I can’t watch the game only get updates and fuzzy radio coverage, the Yankees decide to explode. Fuck me.

    Lesson learned – stick to the radio.

    By the way, apparently hitting like a slump is contagious – Suzyn Waldman.

  173. Mariano's Pimp Hand says:

    Randy Wells has a no-no through 6 innings.

  174. Dela G says:

    wow it’s 83 here in htown and 98 on the field at the bronx?

    incredible

  175. Pat D says:

    The slump is back.

  176. baby carlos says:

    Mike Axisa – think it was you who put out the article on Gardner being more important to the yankees than anyone imagined. well done.

    Have the winning lotto numbers by chance fucking tired of working all the time.

  177. Mike HC says:

    Whenever people talk about Moose and now Pettitte walking away from the game on top, I think the money aspect gets lost a little bit. They are not only “wasting” their baseball ability, but they are also passing up millions of dollars. I don’t care how much money you have, it has got to be tough to turn down a 10+ million dollar deal.

  178. Dela G says:

    i always love hearing about that john mcdonald story

  179. Total Dominication says:

    Encarnacion walked across Andy’s mound!

  180. Total Dominication says:

    Adams should’ve won.

  181. A-Rod's Hip says:

    Jeter, a double play??? that’s rare

      I felt the same way, but then someone did an article showing that, actually, he’s behind the D-P pace he was on in several previous seasons.

      But it still feels like he does it once a game.

  182. Total Dominication says:

    Can we hit Gardner leadoff, please???

  183. Dela G says:

    Alex Gonzalez???

    ugh

    he and bautista are KILLING the yanks this season i believe

  184. Dela G says:

    boy wells has fallen waaaaaaay back to earth

  185. bexarama says:

    Andy Pettitte has given the Yankees length this year. No comment.

  186. Mike Axisa says:

    This game as Dustin Moseley written all over it. Also…

    Russo at third
    Pena at short
    Huffman moves to first
    Curtis to right

  187. Jake H says:

    Good job Andy. Is this lead BP proof ?

  188. Chip says:

    Yeah, I wanna see Moseley get the save in this one

  189. whozat says:

    It seems tough to get the ball out to LC at YSIII, I must say.

  190. Dela G says:

    wow mosley sure doesn’t walk people

    i like that trait

  191. Mike Axisa says:

    Moseley’s from Texarkana, eh? Wonder if he knows the Heathcott’s.

  192. Jimmy says:

    atta boy Mosely

  193. Dela G says:

    now that was a damn impressive inning

    5 pitches, 1K

  194. Mike Axisa says:

    That was quite an impressive inning from Moseley.

  195. bexarama says:

    Moseley to the 8th!!!!!

    /hysterical overreaction’d

  196. Chip says:

    Moseley is obviously the heir to Rivera, look at the movement! The broken bats!

  197. DJH says:

    Dustin to teh 8th!!!

  198. Chip says:

    Hmmm, are we sure they didn’t just call up Melvin and call him Moseley so the other teams wouldn’t see it coming?

  199. DJH says:

    With a 5 pitch inning he’s giving himself a shot at the save.

    • Chip says:

      I’ll bet they’ll let him go 60-70 pitches. He was supposed to make a start two days ago so I would think he’s more than capable of going 100

  200. Zooboy says:

    Moesely Rules.

  201. Dela G says:

    Dustin to teh 8th!!!!!!

  202. Dela G says:

    wait why the hell do you put in CHoP?

  203. Accent Shallow says:

    This is the only situation where Chan Ho park should be pitching — up or down 8 runs.

    (And I’d rather see Moseley here. He at least might help the 2010 Yankees)

  204. Dela G says:

    posada at 1st!

  205. Adam says:

    Umm really Posada at first? Aren’t they supposed to be protecting him from getting hurt?

    • Chip says:

      Hmmmm, catching easy throws from your fielders vs getting nicked with 90 mph foul balls………I’ll put him at first

  206. bexarama says:

    I needed that, Yankees. Thank you.

  207. Dela G says:

    Great fucking win

    the only downside is that a-rod and grit gutner’s RBIs have destroyed me today in fantasy

    • ARX says:

      I’m still kicking myself for not picking up Gardner when he was still available in my league. At the time, I figured “nah, my OF is ok, and he’ll cool off soon.” Damn!

  208. ARX says:

    When I left to go to the store I was afraid I might miss another grand slam or something :-D Great win, very cathartic.

  209. whozat says:

    I kind of love Bob Lorenz

  210. Captain Jack says:

    That was refreshing.
