Game 87: In 3-D!

The next big thing in entertainment is going to be 3-D TV, and YES is making history tonight by broadcasting the first ever baseball game in three dimensions. Granted, you need a fancy 3-D TV set, but if you have one and you’re a Verizon FiOS customer, then you’re in luck. You’ll get to see Mark Teixeira hit baseballs right into your living room. If you don’t, don’t worry, there will be a regular old broadcast as well.

As for the actual game, the Yanks won’t be as lucky as they were yesterday today. Felix Hernandez isn’t getting traded before first pitch, so they’re stuck facing the guy that two-hit them in the Bronx last week. Hopefully the Yanks went to town in the video between then and now and will be better prepared for King Felix tonight.

Here’s your starting nine, on the final 10pm ET start of the season…

Brett Gardner, LF
Nick Swisher, DH – this will be his fifth time DH’ing in the last eight games
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Robbie Cano, 2B
Curtis Granderson, CF
Colin Curtis, RF
Frankie Cervelli, C
Ramiro Pena, SS

Javy Vazquez, SP

Three lefties in a row? Joe Girardi‘s gone mad, mad I tells ya!

Anyway, like I said, 10pm ET start tonight with YES carrying the game. I’m not sure how this whole 3-D thing works as far as channels and what not, but I assume everyone tunes into YES until further notice. Enjoy the game, no matter how many dimensions you watch it in.

  • Chris

    Is anyone planning on watching in 3D? I’m interested to hear some reviews.

    • VO

      I don’t have a 3D TV but I plan on watching it on the 3D channel on Fios if it allows me to.

      • VO

        I guess I’m not, it shows up as 2 separate pictures.

    • JMK

      I live in a fairly upscale suburb. I know ZERO PEOPLE with a 3D TV.

      • Pat D

        3D sucks! It will fuck up your eyes!!

  • Captain Jack

    What the fuck is going on in that picture?

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

    LOL @ that picture.

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

      Also I’m kinda jealous.

  • Amol

    Personally, I’m more excited by the prospect of a Dave Niehaus/Ken Singleton team doing the play-by-play than the 3D.

  • JMK

    With that lineup it looks like Joe decided to start his mini-vacation today.

  • Brandon W

    Colin Curtis, Frankie Cervelli, Ramiro Pena. I would like to say it looks like the Yankees wont get more than 2 hits against Felix tonight, either, but I predict either Cervelli or Pena will have a random 10-hopper ground ball find a hole for some big hit that is purely the result of stupid BABIP, while Cano will have at least 2 line drives caught by perfectly positioned fielders.

    Anyway, with the way Vazquez has been pitching it should still be a fun game to watch. I’ll probably fall asleep halfway through thanks to John Flaherty though…

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime-Jesus & Maquinito FTW

    Melvin was sick =(.

    He says he’s better now, though, and such things are of critical importance to RAB.

    Also, HOLY SHIT Phillies game. And Texas game.

    • Carlosologist

      Lee is the biggest bust in Rangers history (Non-Clyde division)

      • Pat D

        And they could have taken Dave Winfield…

  • Carlosologist

    Wait, FIOs owners can see this game in 3D? AWESOME

    • 28 this year

      if they shelled out a few grand for a 3D tv and whatever it costs for glasses which I heard will run a person another 100+ for extras.

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

    hahahaha cliff lee getting beat by the orioles…

    and tillman with his 7 ERA shutting out texas

    hahahahahahha

    • Carlosologist

      hahahaha cliff lee getting beat by the orioles…

      and tillman with his 7 ERA shutting out no-hitting texas

      hahahahahahha

      FTFY

      • Carlosologist

        What happened to the strikethrough tags I set up around shutting out?

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

          holy crap i just put the game on and noticed tillman was no-hitting the rangers

          this makes me LOL

  • Carlosologist

    Over/under on hits by the Yankees: 3

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      over
      I predict Felix will only last 7. We can then hit the bullpen…hard.

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      There’s 1.

    http://www.multichannel.com/ar.....ecasts.php

    That lists all the 3D channels.

  • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

    That picture looks like an Anderson Cooper wet dream.

  • Carlosologist

    Did anybody else get 10 free days of MLB.tv for voting Swish into the ASG?

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

      I think everyone who voted for that thing did. Nice, though. :)

    • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

      Me! Yay!!!!!! I just saw it.

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

      I didn’t. I got a coupon for 15% off my next MLB.com purchase. Perhaps because I’m already an MLB.tv subscriber.

      • Captain Jack

        Ditto, on both accounts.

  • http://www.theyankeeu.com/author/steve-s/ Nostra-Artist

    I bet when A-Rod retires from Baseball, he could pass the audition to be a Rockette. He’s definitely got the flexibility in the legs for it.

    http://0.tqn.com/d/politicalhu.....ckette.jpg

    Unlike a certain ex-mayor..

  • Ed

    For those with Cablevision, channel 1300 is showing up in the guide info as YES3D and claims to be showing the game. I’m not getting anything at all on the channel, but I have a low end cable package and no 3D TV, so I have no idea if I should be able to see anything.

    • Bob Stone

      You won’t see anything on a 3D channel without the right 3D equipment.

  • forensicnucchem

    I’m confused. Why is Lorenz there suddenly instead of Singleton?

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

      Singleton’s doing the 3-D broadcast I believe.

      • forensicnucchem

        Oh, I thought it was just a different picture thing, but the same audio. Guess not.

        I know some people here like Lorenz, but this is the only combo that could be more boring than Singleton and Flaherty. Ugh…

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

        wow that is interesting

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

    what happened to kenny singleton tonight?

  • Bob Stone

    What the hell good is 3D TV if I have to wear funky 3D glasses? How am I going to watch the game and still see my computer screen so I can chat on RAB?

    Has RAB announced 3D Game Threads to go along with the YES 3D broadcast? Did I miss that somewhere?

  • Reggie C.

    BB Tonight is on. Cliff Lee’s troubles started from the get-go facing COREY PATTERSON. Wow. Cesar Frigging Izturis hit a HR off Lee too. Dayum.

    • Bob Stone

      Maybe Lee had jet lag.

    • Apollo22237

      Think about how the New York media would have exploded if we completed the trade for Lee, and he got beat up by the Orioles. It is funny just to think about it. “He can’t pitch in New York!!! The MENTALITY!!!”

  • Jimmy

    No hitter ova!

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

    Gotta steal now Brett, capitalize on ever opportunity.

  • Vinny the Bull

    So much grit.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime-Jesus & Maquinito FTW
    • Carlosologist

      That’s really scary. I hope it doesn’t happen and can be prevented from happening again.

    • Bob Stone

      How do you find these things?

    • Chris

      Nothing like unsupported rumor mongering. For comparison, Nigerian oil spills have totaled the maximum estimates for the Gulf Oil Spill every 2 years. For the last 50 years.

  • Carlosologist

    Ugh. Arizona’s broadcast crew is making their case for Jack Morris in the HOF. They cited him as a bulldog and a big game pitcher.

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

      Arizona’s broadcast crew is really bad. Also, when Pettitte is eligible for HOF consideration, I cry thinking about how dumb the arguments for him are going to be (especially in comparison to Moose, who is much more deserving) and how I’ll have to say mean things about him to these people.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Jack Morris has a HOF case because of one game.

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

    Real nice Brett, real nice.

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

    damn that sucked

  • Vinny the Bull

    Balls. Could have used that steal on my fantasy team, too.

  • danny

    boo.

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

    great job texy

  • Reggie C.

    Brett should be on 3B right now.

    • Reggie C.

      Brett could’ve scored on that middling fly ball.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Maybe it sounds like this because he got thrown out, but I don’t like sending Gardner against Felix. You’re not likely to get a lot of base runners against him so running probably isn’t worth it.

    Oh and Javy made Ichiro looked silly.

    • Vinny the Bull

      The only thing that ever gets Brett out is a perfect throw, though. Props to the catcher.

      • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

        Yeah, I was listening to the radio, so I didn’t see the throw.

        • Vinny the Bull

          And naturally, Sterling didn’t mention that it was a perfect throw.

          • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

            He said it beat Gardner by “half a step.”

            • Vinny the Bull

              Didn’t know balls could run! Well done, John. Suzyn must be so proud.

              • Vinny the Bull

                That, and he slid headfirst.

    • JMK

      Disagree with you for the same reason.

      • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

        Yeah, I get that side.

        How about this? Curtis jacks one out right now and then Javy pitches a CGSO. Deal?

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    I hate this myth that Figgins was a utility guy. He played 99, 105, and 154 games at 3B from ’07-’09. That’s not a utility player.

  • Carlosologist

    Keith Hernandez is really creepy. I just saw his Bloomberg Sports commercial. *shudders*

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

      yeah its extremely creepy

  • Reggie C.

    Did you guys catch this:

    Flaherty says: Branyon “hustles it up” … The music in the stadium playing that moment was the “Hustle” jingle. Flaherty is quick on his feet.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Broken clock.
      Blind squirrel.
      Etc.

  • Reggie C.

    There’s alot of weird music played at Safeco.

    • Nick L

      playing a little MJ is never a bad thing

    • Poopy Pants

      As YS 2 weeks ago, they were playing really wierd, bad 80’s sounding music for the Yankees hitters. It was very strange.

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

    good job javy

  • Esteban

    Could the Swisher Dhing be because Girardi wanted to put Curtis in the lineup over russo and thames and that curtis is a better fielder than Swisher?

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Why is the myth of Swisher-as-bad-fielder still being perpetuated?

      • Poopy Pants

        Michael Kay is alive, isn’t he?

      • Esteban

        I absolutely don’t think Swisher is a bad fielder, and I actually think that he is incredibly improved over last year, my feeling was that maybe curtis is better than he is, but i have no clue, Girardi’s the one making the decision, and I’m just trying to theorize why

    • Vinny the Bull

      When and if they get another right-handed OF bat (Werth?), maybe this is our indication that Swish will be the primary DH. Or maybe they want to rest him in advance of the Derby and All-Star game. Or maybe none of the above.

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

    i think average is definitely the hardest to get for a triple crown candidate

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      I think it might be RBI because it’s so dependent on on other people. You can get hits and HR, but you can’t help if no one is on base for you.

      • Frigidevil

        I’d argue that makes it the easiest, granted you play for a high scoring team.

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

        i see what you are saying. makes sense

    • kmarx

      They’re equally difficult to win. You’re competing with the same player pool for each one. Any argument for either category being more difficult is just an illusion.

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

    Three of the first five batters have reached base…

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

    anyone seeing the blond girl in a red shirt with the chest in the front row? nice

    Good AB for Curtis thus far. End it well, Grandy!

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Or not. Dammit.

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

    Meh. At least Grandy worked the count deep.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Bob Lorenz: awesome in every sense of the word.

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

      agreed

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

    I thought Colin Curtis was the ninth hitter in the lineup. There’s still two more guys to go!

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

    So, not Yankee-related, but Scott Kazmir, yikes

    • Carlosologist

      He was still in there. But damn, 13 runs charged to Kazmir. He’s really fallen off from his Tampa days.

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

      holy cow, how do they leave kazmir in so long

    • Bob Stone

      The Rays obviously made the right move last year.

  • Reggie C.

    SMOAK.

    • Jimmy

      Should have traded for Montero.

      • Reggie C.

        Haha. I had the same thought. At least Smoak didn’t make a 1st pitch out to end the inning like Brantley. Smoak is supposed to be a 30 hr hitting 1B soon, but i wonder if it wouldn’t help Smoak to send him back to AAA.

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

    Very nice, Javy.

  • Vinny the Bull

    We have a Curry sighting in the booth. Does anyone remember what Michael Kay sounds like? Or care?

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

      It was very weird when his voice came on during that WB Mason commercial last night. I was like, oh, that guy.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    That was the worst swing I’ve ever seen. Ever. In the history of forever.

  • Reggie C.

    holy crap. Pelfrey gives up 12 hits in 4 innings but only gives up 4 runs? Lucky guy.

    • Carlosologist

      All the hits were singles.

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

      That’s like the story of Pelfrey’s season it seems, though lately he’s starting to come back to earth quite abruptly. Welcome to regression to the mean!

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    That pitch crossed high. Bad umpiring.

  • Reggie C.

    That curve was way too high for a K.

  • Jimmy

    That was neck high lol

  • Jimmy

    Swish!!!!!

  • Vinny the Bull

    Swish went to the Home Run Derby a few days early, it would seem.

  • Pat D

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

    SWISHER!!!

  • Carlosologist

    Felix knew it as it left the bat. So did Swish.

    • Vinny the Bull

      I dunno about that. Swish put his head down, and Felix looked pissed that it actually carried out.

      • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

        He was like “Shit. I thought I was in Seattle, not New York.”

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Swisher is unimpressed with your kingliness, Felix.

  • Reggie C.

    SEND SWISH TO THE DERBY !!!

    oh right … nevermind.

    The Yankees have a director of mental conditioning?

      Yup. He interviewed Cito Culver, amongst others, before the draft to make sure he wasn’t crazy.

      • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

        Ammendment: Chris Passarella interviewed the potential draftees. He’s stationed in Tampa and works with the farm system. Chad Bohling is the ML mental conditioning coach based in NY.

  • Reggie C.

    Should Cashman consider trading for Russell Branyan if he’s truly available?

    • Vinny “The Bull” Scafuto

      I don’t think Cash will be attempting any deals with the Mariners any time soon.

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

      Pretty sure we won’t be seeing any more deals between the Yanks and Mariners as long as Zduriencik is there.

        First third basemen in New Yankee Stadium history. A fact that makes A-Rod cry himself to sleep, until he remembers his 597 homeruns and World Series victory.

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

    Oof. Arizona’s first round pick failed his physical, I think that was the 10th or 11th pick. Unsurprisingly, his school ran him into the ground the last few weeks of the season. 150+ pitches a few times.

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

      6th overall, nevermind. That’s even worse.

    • ARX

      WTF? Why would they do that to his arm? 150 pitches!?

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

        His school didn’t care, he was leaving and they were in the NCAA postseason.

    • Reggie C.

      Dayum. Where does that exactly put the D-Backs in terms of being able to sign Loux?

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

        I assume he won’t sign now.

        • Reggie C.

          Can the 2 sides mutually agree to waive the physical portion? How material is a physical for a non-ML contract? I mean if the D-Backs can sign Loux, maybe they should. Like a Nick Adenhart situation.

        I’ve finally seen all 6 parts now.

  • Ivan

    Nice job their Striking out Mark Teixeira

    Oh Wait!!!

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Seriously I don’t know why this team would need a Cliff Lee rental. This rotation is beast.

    • Reggie C.

      The Mariners dont exactly sport a decent lineup. They’re dead last in slugging in the majors. Javy should look damn good against the quad-A lineup.

    • Pat D

      Because Hughes has an innings limit, Burnett is inconsistent, supposedly nobody trusts Javy and Pettitte is 38.

      Why is that hard to grasp?

      • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

        Hughes limit is only 180, Burnett has always been inconsistent, trusting Javy has nothing to do with it and Pettitte is having a career year.

        I’m not slow as you are implying I am as I don’t see the point but adding CLiff Lee is a luxury to the second best rotation in baseball. Unless second best isn’t good enough apparently.

        • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

          Second bets in the AL I mean.

          • Pat D

            Hughes will hit that inning limit before the postseason starts, very true, I agree but people always talk about it, and that can change with the snap of your fingers.

            Yes, adding Lee was a luxury. To me it was one they could afford and would make them verrrrrrry hard to be beat in any playoff series.

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

    man javy is on fire

    why they thought of getting cliff lee when they dont need him is beyond me

    • bonestock94

      amen

  • Scooter

    Did Cervelli just catch Saunders peeking?
    He initially set up high, and then set up super low and outside

  • Vinny “The Bull” Scafuto

    Should we start getting excited after one inning or two?

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

      after the 7th IMO

      • Scooter

        Glad Kay’s not in the booth… or we’d get another long discussion about not discussing these events

  • Reggie C.

    Felix’s pitch count isn’t too high. Hopefully he nets one of those rare CG losses when its all said and done.

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

      cliff lee had one of those today!

  • Carlosologist

    Javy is spinning a gem.

  • Jimmy

    Man you have to be kidding me :(

  • bonestock94

    Yankees scouting Nolasco, wow..

    • Captain Jack

      Javier Vazquez 2.0 basically…I guess they really don’t like Vazquez or Burnett or are worried about Hughes’ innings.

  • Kevin in Delectable Princeton

    The Mariners are my new least favorite team (non-Red Sox division).

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Love Cano’s arm strength.

  • Carlosologist

    A no-hitter would be an awesome way to top off the first half. Combined with the best record in baseball and leading the division by two games.

    • Carlosologist

      If Tex had hung on to the ball, Ichiro would’ve been out.

  • Pat D

    So much for a potential no-no.

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

    that changeup is filthy tonight

    i love how we are finally seeing the 2009 version of vasquez, and the arm is getting stronger

  • Reggie C.

    Of course Ichiro busts it up. at least javy’s not hurt.

  • Jimmy

    No ;(

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

    I really do not like Ichiro in any way, shape, or form

    • Pat D

      I actually like him more than I used to, not that I necessarily like him.

      He showed a lot of respect at last year’s All-Star Game, by placing flowers on George Sisler’s grave and was supposedly starstruck when he met the president. I thought that was kinda cool.

  • Frigidevil

    Holy crap that was almost awesome

  • Captain Jack

    I’ve always hated Ichiro!. Fucking asshole.

  • Kevin

    uhm… error…

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

    that was a bullshit hit call

  • Vinny “The Bull” Scafuto

    A little hometown cooking on that scoring decision.

  • Pat D

    People, that was a hit. If it doesn’t hit Javy, it’s in center field. Just deal with it and move on. It’s only 1-0.

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

    dont worry about ichiro, throw strikes

    • Captain Jack

      Pretty much this.

  • Carlosologist

    For all we hate Ichiro, I think everyone here would appreciate his pre-ASG rant.

  • JMV

    fuck you ichiro!

    (Edited by RAB: Don’t ever use racial slurs again.)

        I just wanted to apologize to everybody I offended. I was just really pissed about the no-hitter gone and wrote some inappropriate stuff. I know what I said was wrong and once again I’d like to apologize to everybody and move on

  • Jimmy

    why is he scared to throw now lol.

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

    good job javy, you have been performing outstandingly since may 12

  • Scooter

    Javy at 93 pitches through 6 – so you’re ecstatic if he gives you 7 shutout innings here.

    Felix at 79 – so even with 2 grind-out innings, he’s probably going 8.

  • Sleepykarl

    Everytime the Yanks get a no-no going on the west coast, a Suzuki just has to hit a ball off the pitcher to break it up (like Kurt in Hughes vs A’s).

    • Pat D

      And I think that one hit Hughes, too.

      • Pat D

        Oops, sorry, didn’t read carefully.

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

    ha good to see 62 percent of the people agreed with me on the average

    and i love Bob Lorentz

    • kmarx

      How can any of them be more difficult if you’re competing against the same playing pool?

      • Pat D

        Well, you do often see guys who are leaders in HR and RBI not leaders in AVG.

      • Scooter

        Figuring that HRs and RBIs tend to go together – but power and batting average don’t

        Cervelli and Pena are just overmatched against Felix

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

        i think if you look at it, a lot more people have won HR+ RBI than AVG+HR/RBI that’s why i think average is the hardest

  • Pat D

    I’d be sending Granderson here.

    • Scooter

      Interesting decision if Granderson does get into scoring position – do you pinch-hit for Pena with Jeter?

  • Captain Jack

    My fantasy team could have used the no hitter tonight.

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

    What just happened? CF camera went out.

  • Vinny “The Bull” Scafuto

    Err… did they just lose all of their cameras?

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

  • Captain Jack

    http://jay-mariotti.fanhouse.c.....-new-york/

    I now wish that Cliff Lee was traded for Montero.

    • Scooter

      Hawk Harrelson is right – Mariotti is a hineybird

      • Pat D

        Mariotti is just the guy trying to scream the loudest, basically.

        This is somewhat disappointing coming from him. I thought he was a non-NY writer who “got” the Yankees. I remember a few years ago on Around the Horn they brought up the frequent HR calls at Yankee Stadium, and everyone else on the show was like, “It’s stupid, act like you’ve been there before,” and Mariotti was the only one that understood it as part of the culture of Yankee Stadium, as he called it.

        • Captain Jack

          The Glenn Beck of baseball journalism.

          • Pat D

            Oh, come now. NO ONE is as bad as Glenn Beck.

  • Reggie C.

    Does anybody think that the Tigers are trying to keep a tight lid against media leaks in handling Porcello’s availability.

    Why would the Tigers trade this kid? The rumors just seem alittle crazy but the rumors are out there.

          Classic.

          “Eliminator lined to right, a base hit.”

          “There’s some real pus lined to center.”

  • TheLastClown

    I say this as a vehement Joba supporter, Joba-as-starter proponent, etc…

    He should be sent down, broken down & rebuilt.

    His mechanics are in shambles, his confidence has to be shaky, and his results have been abhorrent.

    A huge talent is floundering, and the team needs to do something about it.

    • Kevin in Delectable Princeton

      I 100% agree. The Blue Jays did it to Halladay way back when and Joba is doing no good as a reliever here.

      • Bxbomber

        STOP WITH THE FUCKING HALLADAY COMPARISONS. THIS IS NYC NOT TORONTO!!!!!

        At what point will you guys realize this is what he is and all he ever will be?

    • CT Yankee

      Good point.. Very good point

    • Bxbomber

      No he needs to be traded immediately for whatever scraps we can get for him. He’s done as a Yankee. He’ll never cut it and never could. There is no salvaging this. Thanks for finally admitting what was obvious to those with eyes last year.

      • http://www.nomaas.org K.B.D.

        *facepalm*

      • TheLastClown

        I’ll try responding dispassionately to you.

        Why would you trade for ‘scraps?’ What good are ‘scraps?’

        Why not just relegate him to the minors & eventually release him if you hate him so much?

        But the question is, if you have a mismanaged asset that is hurting you, while at the same time having the potential to help you as a positive, why not correct the management error & try to properly develop your asset?

        But if you hate him to hate him to hate him, then fine, enjoy yourself.

  • Shdw

    Is it too late to trade Joba for Halladay?

  • http://fmylife.com Bryan (Formerly JobaJr)

    This inconsistent bullshit ain’t gonna cut it anymore more.

    The Yanks need to find something to do with this guy because the way its going right now just is not working.

    • TheLastClown

      Wow. Changed the handle and everything huh?

      I don’t think he’s done, I don’t think this is his true talent level, and I don’t think the team has done a good job coaxing the potential out of him.

      There is hope for Joba yet, but he needs to be broken down & have his mechanics rebuilt.

      • Reggie C.

        If that means we dont see Joba for the rest of the season but see an improved version next season (as a reliever), i think i’d be very cool with that route.

        Gotta trade for a reliever though.

      • http://fmylife.com Bryan (Formerly JobaJr)

        By no means he’s done. The kid has too much potential to be pitching this bad. He has some of the best raw stuff in the Majors. I’m not saying he’s a bad pitcher, but change is really in order.

        He DOES need to be sent down for two reasons: 1) To fix his mechanics/way of attacking hitters. 2) Sending him down to AAA from “Set-up Man” will knock him off his feet.

        I still got faith in the kid.

  • Bxbomber

    Every single person who ever pulled a Jenna Jameson on Joba Chamberlain should shoot themselves immediately. I blame you as much as him.

    • TheLastClown

      I have no idea what this means.

  • damn yanks

    do we have a 3 run rally in our bones????

  • Reggie C.

    Demote Joba and bring back Albie. Promote Robertson to the 8th.

    Joba has no business facing major league hitters in pressurized situation.

  • Bob Stone

    I have an idea. Why don’t the Yankees trade for Cliff Lee, send Joba to the minors and use Hughes in the 8th inning? Oops . . . they tried that.

  • CT Yankee

    Javy should shit in his cornflakes

    • Kit

      Ramiro should get in on that too. A jumping catch to save a run is not easy.

  • Aj

    Well maybe not send him down, but he can’t be the bridge to Mariano anymore. Maybe the Yanks need to get the RP they’ve needed since Spring.

  • Thomas Cassidy

    I really hate Joba now. After this season, I want him gone.

  • j

    wow… joba… what’s going on with him?

  • ahind

    did anyone notice flash say that the rbi changes the “complexion of the game?” understatement?

  • Hughesus Christo

    Send Joba to AAA to start.
    Send Joba to AAA to start.
    Send Joba to AAA to start.
    Send Joba to AAA to start.
    Send Joba to AAA to start.

    • Total Dominication

      This, this , and more of this.

      • TheLastClown

        +62

  • Bob Stone

    It’s really amazing how far Joba has regressed from his stellar relief debut a couple years ago.

  • lily-bk

    gotta feel for javy…he pitched a great game only to have joba blow another one…

  • Aj

    This bullpen is a disaster. When’s Alfredo Aceves coming back?

    • lily-bk

      had another setback … i doubt we’ll be seeing him

  • Jimmy

    The guy was rattled after the bloop single. He needs to be sent down and have his head examined.

    So sick of people making excuses for this guy.

    • baby carlos

      Well said. He is a regressing enigma that needs to grow up

      • Jack

        . . . that needs to grow up?

        ?

  • mike

    Only Joba could screw up a 48-0 streak of wins after leading in the 8th. WTG Joba!

    • TheLastClown

      No, it was leading after the 8th.

      He’s blown games before in the 8th, remember?

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

      Well if we’re 48-0 leading going into the eighth, you know, Joba would have played a huge role in that…

      (I think they said leading after the eighth)

      • TheLastClown

        I like that we both italicized after.

  • Vinny “The Bull” Scafuto

    Oh good, the bottom of the order!

    • Aj

      lmao I thought the same thing.

  • Aj

    Well if a positive is needed. Javy has had a great June and July so far.

  • baby carlos

    The over hyped future fails again. Law of diminishing returns.

    • whozat

      Yeah, Phil Hughes and Brett Gardner really suck!

      Oh…wait, establishing two-of-three big leaguers in 2009/2010 is a bad track record? K.

      • baby carlos

        Um did I mention those two? Oh wait I didn’t, just the Joba. But thanks for putting words into my mouth. Your a real talent.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      You must be thrilled.

      • baby carlos

        Yes, Brian Cashman, I am thrilled joba came in and sucked to holy high hell. You people and your comments when someone rails on failure crack me up.

        • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

          It’s not just what you say. It’s what you say combined with when you say it and how you say it. You’re absent the entire game yet you just happen to show up when Joba gives up the lead? Please. And, yes, I know you were out the entire night and just got back in and didn’t have time to comment on a Yankee blog on a Saturday night.

          • baby carlos

            Oh so my timing is what is wrong. Actually, was just listening to the radio and reading all the brilliant comments by yourself and the other GM’s in training. I know that I will never be a major league GM and I know that showing irrational emotion on this site is forbidden, lest one is ready to accept the wrath of the Cashman clones, but seriously, get over yourself. You and others think that making swipes at people for snide comments of frustrations elevates you to some superior baseball knowledge that the person who made comment doesn’t possess, rather than just looking at the comment as an off the cuff comment of frustration.

            Yet, in reality, those of you have no fucking idea how much someone knows and whether or not they are just enjoying the game and saying what you don’t have the balls to say because your elitist crowd might take away your Hamptons home, God forbid.

            So when you are done staring at yourself in the mirror and admiring all the small points that you think make you the exalted one, let me know. Otherwise, just enjoy the game and let people vent when they feel like venting. To some, baseball is just fun to watch and express frustration as a fan.

  • Pat D

    Smart move by Wakamatsu to leave Hernandez in.

    Oh, then he gives up a double.

    Anyway, what are the chances Hernandez fills one of the vacated spots at the ASG after his last two starts against the Yankees? 1000%?

  • nyc

    Another blown game by Joba…

  • Jimmy

    WHAT!

  • Aj
  • ZZ

    Joba to Scranton? lol. He is not even a AAA pitcher at this point.

    He needs to go to Tampa and completely rework his way back up as a pitcher.

    I have been saying this since the first month of the season after watching the way he was throwing.

    • TheLastClown

      I 100% agree with you.

  • Reggie C.

    Of course Felix gets that call. Home town and all.

    • Scooter

      The curve ball called strike against Gardner earlier on was an even worse call – it was well over the belt when it crossed the plate

      It ain’t over yet

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    How in the fuck is that a strike? Oh, right, ’cause Curtis is a rookie.

  • Vinny “The Bull” Scafuto

    Sup Jeets. JoPo up next?

  • Carlosologist

    Will someone explain to me that bullshit call? Tell me how Curtis swung at that.

    • Pat D

      He didn’t swing. The ump made a terrible call.

  • Pat D

    It’s amazing how quickly everyone turns on Joba.

    I know he’s been hugely inconsistent and all, but, damn, it’s not like he’s past hope.

    How many of you thought this on Wednesday?

    • Jimmy

      the man blows game after game.

      • Shdw

        It’s never a clean inning for Joba when it counts. He pulls a Bard every time

    • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

      How QUICKLY?? Have you not been paying attention this year?

    • Vinny “The Bull” Scafuto

      It’s the sinking feeling you get when he comes in. I literally said “Ah, crap” when they announced him.

      • Pat D

        Not an excuse for all this “I want him traded” crap. I know you didn’t say that yourself.

        Think about this: how much would you get for him if you all think he’s garbage and past hope?

        • Bxbomber

          Some other team will think like you guys do and think “we can salvage him as a starter and maybe he’ll be the next Halladay”

          That alone will bring in some value.

          • Pat D

            Yes, but the Yankees aren’t going to give up on him, so forget it.

    • Bxbomber

      He’s past hope. Let’s stop playing these games, trying to salvage him. We should be trying to salvage him in hopes we can sucker some other team into giving us something of value. He’ll never be a prime time performer for the Yankees in any role at all.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Best. Hit. Ever.

  • Ross in Jersey

    Hey guys, here’s a real novel idea. Joba was never that good to begin with. In any case, I don’t know what else he has to do to lose the 8th inning role.

            It’s pretty fucking obvious it’s true. Once the scouting report about his bad control came out he’s been nothing but a average-to-bad pitcher. He’s shown NOTHING outside of what, 20 appearances in 2007? Please.

              Well at least this time you offered some evidence.

        the last pitch of Jimenez’s no-hitter, his 128th pitch, was 101 MPH.

  • Kevin in Delectable Princeton

    Joba has a -.692 WPA today That’s a lot. But he also had a 2.35 FIP and 3.24 xFIP coming into today, so maybe we’re over-reacting. But that sill doesn’t change the fact that he should be starting.

    • Pat D

      Still not as bad as Ryan Franklin’s WPA from Thursday, I think it was.

    • ARX

      FIP doesn’t count balls in play. As long as he doesn’t walk 100 guys and give up a ton of homers, its actually possible to have a good FIP but suck otherwise.

      • Kevin in Delectable Princeton

        Good point. From what I can see it’s a combination of giving up a few weak hits, so he’s still getting unlucky, like what we just saw, and then giving up some really hard hit ones. You’re probably right, he’s worse than his FIP suggests.

    • Bxbomber

      Jesus fucking christ….

      FIP? xFIP? WPA?

    I know everyone plays their role, but by my count, this is the second game this season that Joba has been solely responsible for losing. that is a huge swing in the course of a season, especially in a division as tight as ours.

    • TheLastClown

      Honestly, I think there have been more.

      But you think two games is a huge swing in the course of a season?

      That’s approximately 3.2% of the season. Not altogether that huge.

        Yes. Win >>>>>>> Loss. Brilliant.

        It was a heartbreaker. But, coming into the series, you thought *after the Lee drama* that this game was the only one that favored the M’s. It looked like the Yanks were about to buck the odds, but they didn’t in the end. C’est la vie.

        Shitty loss, especially for a Joba lover such as myself. But #28 is on the horizon yet.

        • Pat D

          Really.

          Didn’t expect them to win today, but it still hurts at the end.

          Still, you win tomorrow and you have a 6-1 west coast trip. Can’t hope for much better than that.

      • http://fmylife.com Bryan (Formerly JobaJr)

        No shit, but I’m trying to keep a positive attitude bro. That’s how you deal with losses like this.

        Can’t put that much blame on Barksdale, really.

        • Jimmy

          He gave Felix 2 outs. TWO OUTS. He missed the foul tip in the dirt. Barksdale is a joke.

          • Pat D

            Not saying he isn’t. But when you’ve only scored 1 run in the first place, you can’t expect to win.

    That Felix fist-pump was Papelbon-esque. Not sure who I’d rather punch in the face right now – Felix or Joba

    • Bob Stone

      I go with Joba

    • Total Dominication

      Felix just CG’d the streaking Yankees, give him a break.

    • Jimmy

      Joba’s a scrub. Felix has heart. Joba and that damn ump.

      • TheLastClown

        You’re a scrub.

    • Kit

      I suggest a double-punch. They’re both annoying.

    • FIPster Doofus

      I had no problem with Felix’s histrionics. The thing is, he didn’t come into a 4-1 game, get three outs and celebrate like a maniac like Papelbon often has. He threw 126 pitches and got 27 outs, and racked up his second complete game win over the Yankees in the last two weeks. Felix is an absolute stud, so I say let him have his fun. It’s unfortunate he beat NYY again, but one has to appreciate just how good this kid is at the same time.

  • Adam

    Did I miss something? Did the Mariners just win the World Series?

      no, its just been years since they won a game. If I recall, the last time they won a game was nine years ago in 2001.

    • K-rizzle

      That’s what i was thinking. Did they just win something… besides a game in the middle of the season. By the way felix and lopez were reacting you would of thought they just clinched a trip to the world series.

      • TheLastClown

        It was an exciting game. They had a late comeback.

        When the Yankees come back late & win in dramatic fashion, especially with a CG performance from your ace, you get pumped up.

        You feel how dejected we are from the loss? Well they’re that elated from the win.

  • Bob Stone

    King Felix pitched a GREAT game (with a little help from the ump).

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

        I meant as a whole. Obviously Javy was awesome.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Seriuosly, though, what is there to be done? Every possible scenario probably brings about a negative. Let’s run down the list:

      1. Keep running him out there–already hasn’t worked too well.
      2. Relegate him to mop up duty–he gets infrequent work and nothing really gets fixed because of that.
      3. Send him to the minors–he blows away AAA hitters while not really working on that much.

      I guess Option Three is best because at least he could work on his mechanics in a stress free environment, but how likely is he to work on them when he’s just blowing those guys away with his normal routine.

        Option Three really is the best at this point. Halladay him. It can’t make him any worse.

        Or…

        4. By sending him down to AAA, you actually knock some sense into his head and get him thinking mentally positive.

      • Reggie C.

        Your assuming Joba would return to his dominant form from years ago. That’s not something i’d bank on at this point. Joba may have the velocity from ’07, but his location is cringe-worthy bad and seasoned AAA hitters will make hard contact on mistakes.

        • boogie down

          AAA hitters making hard contact is actually something I’d welcome. It would force him to re-evaluate the way he pitches and exhaust any and all methods of mechanics rehabilitation to get to where he and most everyone else knows he can be.

          As disappointing as this loss is, maybe it’s the trough that he needs to reach in order for both he and the organization to take notice and do whatever they can to reinvigorate his career.

          I know he isn’t Roy Halladay, and that that comparison has been beaten to death, but it’s still worth noting that even a HOF pitcher isn’t infallible and can come across speed bumps, some major, on his way to success. For Joba, the talent is clearly there to be very good, or even great, and we’ve seen flashes of his potential brilliance this very year! When people say he’s been inconsistent, they are acknowledging this very thing — that he’s had moments of outright dominance but he’s yet to show that he can be depended on to do it each time he’s given the ball.

          All along, the worry was that Joba’s shoulder injury would prevent him from ever regaining the dynamite stuff he showed in ’07 and ’08. While it’s very unfortunate that his control “varies,” to say the least, that is certainly something that is fixable. I firmly believe that if a patient and methodical approach is taken towards fixing his delivery, he’ll reach heights we may not have seen yet. Remember, he was never properly developed in the first place, so giving up on him would be foolish and even unfair.

          BTW, I know that only my first paragraph applies to what you posted but I felt like it would be best for my rant to be kept together rather then strewn about the thread.

          • boogie down

            I should add that it seems as though he’s regained the stuff we’d once thought was gone forever.

      • TheLastClown

        The point isn’t to send him down to let him ‘attack hitters’ or ‘regain confidence.’

        It’s to totally reshape the mechanics. It’s to get him to pitch differently.

        As he uses new techniques, he won’t immediately blow away hitters. He’ll have to figure it out. As it becomes repeatable, his true talent level will be allowed to come out.

        I don’t think your idea of sending him down is the optimal one. And i’m not sure that there’s any other option to get real value out of this player.

      • TheLastClown

        It’s pretty great. I wear a Joba jersey that my lady got me for my birthday a couple years back. It’s got ‘Joba’ as the lettering, and I take so much heat when I go to games it’s comical.

        I live in L.A., so I go mostly to Yankee-Angels games. I was also at the final Yankee-Dodgers series, the *maybe* most exciting game of the season.

        But I get as much hear from Yankee fans as from fans of the other club. The opposition fans think he’s overrated, etc., but the Yankee fans, especially those who’ve never heard of this blog, really seem to hate him. They have no idea of how fast he was rushed, how little he developed, and so on.

        It just sucks, because honed properly, he could be a historic Yankee weapon, but as is, he just looks embarrassing.

        Completely serious. Even Karl Ravech asked him, “Wait a minute. You’re not recommending they pull Hughes from the rotation are you?” and proceeded to call the idea “Crazy”.

          Ravech may be a not-so-subtle-card-carrying member of RSN , but Ravech did good right there to call that idea crazy.

    Sending Joba to AAA is pointless.

    He is not going to learn anything in AAA or iron out his mechanics.

    At this point, he needs (needed to for months IMO) to be sent down to a lower level like Tampa and learn how to pitch/refine his mechanics.

    He is basically an unpolished pitcher right now with terrible mechanics.

    His problems are those you see in A ball pitchers.

    • Bob Stone

      So true.

          That’s what they did to Halladay in 2000? when he was really sucking.

        • http://soxandpinstripes.net Angelo

          Halladay had to do this.

        • baby carlos

          ahh… did not remember that. Thank you for the reminder. But the comparison of Joba to Halliday is like saying an apple and an orange are the same thing.

          • TheLastClown

            It’s really not. If you were a Toronto fan, and you had to suffer through the bad Halladay, you would react just thisly.

            And this justly. Which is not justly at all.

            You’d have no idea of his true talent level, and you’d let your reactionarianism *my word* blind you to the true worth of a disguised asset.

            Did you not see some of Joba’s shutdown starts in 2008?

            I just don’t get why it’s fashionable to hate the guy. Hughes had quite a few struggles before he dominated the ‘pen last year. But he’s the Phranchise, I guess. And he also got proper time to develop in the minors.

          • http://soxandpinstripes.net Angelo

            Well, they both had great potential when they started out. So the comparison isn’t way off.

            And an Orange and an Apple are still both fruits, so there are comparisons. It’s not like what Matt said wasn’t fitting.

    • TheLastClown

      I’m not exactly well versed in the coaching staffs throughout the Yankees minor league affilates, but I wonder exactly what level would benefit Joba the most. I know Halladay was sent down to A ball, but I’m just not sure who’s who at what level in the Yanks’ system.

      Wherever his mechanics can be rebuilt into a consistent model is where he should go. But yeah, I agree with you ZZ.

      • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

        I’m assuming Nardi will beat better mechanics into him.

      • http://soxandpinstripes.net Angelo

        Betances and Brackman have found their way in Tampa. So maybe that would be a good place to start.

        Betances’ delivery has improved a ton this season, which one of the main reasons for his success.
