    Yankees bring the tying run to the plate in the next 9th.

    (For the nostalgia)

      Jeter ground ball in bot of eighth & ground meat on the pop up in ninth. He needs to get his head out of his butt.

              I love seeing the Sox in last place too, but Mike’s point (that I agree with) is that you can’t get too worked up about the Sox remaining in the race all year long. The season is long and the Sox have talented players. Don’t focus on the standings too much in April, just hope we’re still better than them in September.

    Well they got Humber out of the game at least. Won’t do anything next inning. Only chance is in the 9th with Grandy, Teix, A-Rod, Cano. It would be a damn shame to let AJ’s gem go to waste.

  • A-Rod’s Wingman

    Lost in getting shat on by a replacement level starter, AJ’s having a great night, maybe the best start from a Yankee so far this season. It was really Granderson going for the dive rather than keeping the play infront of him that cost him the run.

    • TheLastClown

      Agree. It seemed to me that he didn’t have a chance to actually catch that ball.

  • Xstar7

    Everyone except A-Rod has given up.

    • First time lawng time

      Yes. The entire offense has given up, and you can definitely tell by the results. I guess we should just pack it in now. Afterall it is only a 7 inning game.

                      If you think you’re constantly getting criticized, you should try saying less dumb shit. You’re not being singled out or persecuted; you’re always getting ragged on because you always say dumb shit.

                      Like Rose. Your persecution complex is false; you just get persecuted a lot because you keep committing persecutable offenses.

                  You need to think about your comments before you make them. Baseball is a game, and this website is just for fun, so you need to start treating things that way and stop taking everything so seriously.

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

              And saying that Swisher’s facial expressions in the midst of a potential no-hitter are unacceptable and that he’s worthy of your scorn is also stupid and you deserved to be called out on that as well, FTLT.

              • First time lawng time

                I wasn’t scorning him, I was just saying it looked stupid to look like he’s having fun when his team is losing and being no hit.

                But I said something negative, so we have to make a big deal out of it.

            • Xstar7

              The Yankees haven’t really given up, they just didn’t bring their A-game today. Such is the case when you almost get no-hit by Phil Humber.

    • A-Rod’s Wingman

      You know it’s bad when he is the only one trying.

  • First time lawng time

    Looks like we’re gona have our first shut out against.

      Yeah let’s throw the guy with the long track record under the bus.

      • King George

        The guy with the “long track record” hasn’t shown much in the last two years and 95% of his hits this year are home runs. Also, notice his trends the past three years and tell me he isn’t on a steep decline.

  • Mocha Joe

    Hopefully Jones can manage to get on base so Jeter can make his automatic out this inning. That will leave a clean slate for the only good hitters we have left in this lineup, Grandy, Teix, A-Rod, Cano.

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

      like I said, if Nunie was still on the bench, PH Sabathia for Jeter

    • S.King

      short pop up that landed behind the mound just on the grass. soriano thought it was a routine pop and walked forward, pointing up. the ball did pop up far enough, though, for any infielder to get there and catch it.

      • Plank

        thanks. and ugh.

  • Denver Yankee

    As much as you pull for the guy and love him as a legendary yankee, its becoming difficult to take. Once Derek gets 3k, he should fold his hand and leave on top. Jeter could wear us (fans) out quickly, its painful…

    • CBean

      That play was Soriano. The entire infield was back and couldn’t get there in time. You don’t just wait around for someone else to make the play.

      • Simon

        Ridiculous, and he points to it like its a mile high….It was barely 10 feet from his head and couldnt catch it. Add to the fact that every time he is out there its like he is thinking about the hot waitress he saw at the restaurant he ate at for lunch and not about baseball….

      Do you even like the yankees?????????

      I am very concerned right now.

    Soriano should have had that infield pop up. Of course he gives up a run after something doesnt go his way. The guy folds faster then a fucking 5 dollar beach chair.

    • http://www.twitter.com/CaptainRaf CaptainRaf

      maybe that back that kept him out of the game yesterday could be the reason why it fell in. or that a majority of pitchers dont make attempts on pop ups behind the mound.

  • Tom Zig

    That missed, where, exactly?

  • Cy Pettitte

    boo this man again

  • http://twitter.com/unfixed unfixed

    ump = turrible

  • Pastadivingarod

    Nunez threw that like a girl

    • Pastadivingarod

  • thaaaaaaayankeeeswin

    Rios 3 run bomb right here….just to leave NO doubt

    Compared to Soriano, ARod is becoming simply loveable.

  • TheLastClown

    That was a particularly sexy DP.

  • CBean

    Figures we can’t muster up any run support on AJ’s best night.

  • jorge brosada

    As much as I feel that we have no chance of coming back 2 runs…we have Alex. The chosen one.

    • jorge brosada

      (Holy music in the background)

    • Mocha Joe

      He’s all we’ve got at this point. Their pen isn’t good so there is hope.

  • ROBTEN

    It’s the ninth, time to pass the bayonets!

    • TheLastClown

      affixes bayonet to forehead, rhino-style

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Grandy and ARod in this inning?

    #lasthopes

  • http://www.blogs.thetenthinningstretch.com the tenth inning stretch

    All right, someone for A-Rod to drive in.

  • jorge brosada

    Nice Grandy, but I wish you had taken 2nd there

  • Tom Zig

    belly-to-belly FTW

  • NHyankeesfan

    Can we trade granderson’s contract with jeter’s?

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    PLEASE no GIDP

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      Wow………

  • First time lawng time

    People need to shut up about Soriano and his contract. I bet you weren’t complaining the during the past two games that Mo blew. This game is 100% on the offense.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      The irony…

      • First time lawng time

        Not really, because I’ve been complaining only about the offense.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    And Arod can’t do it all himself guys.

  • Cy Pettitte

    jesus fucking christ

  • aRX

    Well…it was nice having hope for a few seconds.

  • jorge brosada

    Teix i will end you.

    • Tom Zig

      It’s still April. He’s well out-performing his usual.

      • jorge brosada

        oh I know. Teix has actually been very good. It’s just that was a un-timely GIDP to cap off an extremely frustrating game to watch

  • Kostas

    And splat!!!!!

  • Urban

    Oh, well. Back tomorrrow to watch another game. Wait, I’ll be on plane tomorrow. Hopefully they’ll be leading when I land.

  • icebird753

    Trade Teixeira and Jeter and make Jorge Vasquez and Nunez the replacements. Damn scrubs

    • Hummingbird S.

      Sad thing is Nunez can probably match Jeter’s production.

      • Monteroisdinero

        For 14 million less.

  • jorge brosada

    Fuck that shit. Offense better come out guns blazing tomorrow…

  • http://www.blogs.thetenthinningstretch.com the tenth inning stretch

    Wow. From hopeful to crushed.

  • TheLastClown

    I’ve got a much easier time with a loss that’s due the the offense.

    It’s a clear strength of this team, and the nature of the sport dictates that even your strongest aspects must falter from time to time. Just a little bit of ugly variance.

    If the questionable pitching begins to blow games, I’m’a start to worry.

    Till then, GG Humber/ChiSox.

  • Hummingbird S.

    Painful game to watch. Hope they do better tomorrow.

  • Cy Pettitte

    everyone on this team should be hit in the head with a bat for wasting 8IP 1ER from AJ

  • Simon

    …..Aaaaaaand another great pitching performance by Burnett wasted…terrific

  • CBean

    I hate Ozzie Guillen’s face.

  • http://www.blogs.thetenthinningstretch.com the tenth inning stretch

    There better be another 15-3 games tomorrow.

  • Poopy Pants

    AJ and Freddie >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mo, Soriano, CC, Hughes, Nova

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

      Same old shtick eh? Originality is for suckers anyway.

  • wow

    unfortunately, the next three aren’t any easier. Should’ve taken this one. Friggin’ offense…

  • Total Dominication

    Well that sucked, and RIP Cano’s hitting streak.

    • V

      He deserves it. His patience is back to pre-2010 levels. d00d hasn’t seen a single pitch he doesn’t want to hack at.

  • Pat D

    Glad I wasn’t watching this. Though from scanning over the comments, some of them were highly amusing.

    I do believe this is a game PeteAbe would call “embarrassing.”

  • Gonzo

    Did it look like A-Rod was going to get into a shoving match at the end?

  • Kostas

    These are the type of games where Joe just spews cliches….. Can’t wait for him to pontificate on this “splat”

  • First time lawng time

    Hey offense, let’s try to show up tomorrow alright? It’s usually not hard to win games when your SP gives up 1 run. But whatever, we all make blunders.

    Good thing we have Nova tomorrow to help us get back on track.

  • Xstar7

    Positives: AJ pitched about as good as you possibly could in a game you lost, and THEY DIDN’T GET NO HIT.

    • Pat D

      Yay, and that’s a pretty Pyhrric victory. Alas.

  • Jorge

    Philip Humber is the latest member of the Bryan Bullington All-Stars. Make sure you refer to your list of things that were bound to happen this year and check it off.

    Tomorrow’s a new day. Maybe Ivan Nova will even get out of the fifth.

  • Jorge

    I will say this: The Rafael Soriano era is not going well thus far in all sorts of ways.

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

      If only Randy Levine and Hal Steinbrenner had been warned about the perils of giving multi-year contracts to relievers.

  • Mocha Joe

    No changes will ever be made to the lineup. It’s the job of Gardner and Jeter to get on base and they aren’t doing it. Swisher and Posada aren’t protecting A-Rod and Cano. Those 4 need to be shuffled. We can move Jeter down and starting playing Jones and Chavez more but Girardi won’t do a damn thing.

    • http://twitter.com/Paddock9652 Stratman9652

      Just gonna keep beating that dead horse aren’t you?

  • A-Rod’s Wingman

    To lessen the disappointment I will watch Game of Thrones, and see if it is any more unbearable than the game. So far it’s the most overly verbose fan boy bullshit I’ve ever seen. Watching the first twenty minutes I know know how the cliff jumpers in the third inning feel.

  • A-Rod’s Wingman

    Now there’s a midget fucking a bitch, starting to get interesting. Nice ass on this bitch.

    • Pat D

      Thanks for the PBP.

    • Snake Plissken

      Now there’s a midget fucking a bitch

      So Pedoria is in the movie

      • Pat D

        Is he playing both roles?

  • bonestock94

    I’m happy I went against my instincts and drafted Bautista for 2 of my teams. SSS, but still, things are looking good.
