Game 19 Spillover Thread


New thread, new luck.

Categories : Game Threads


  1. mbonzo says:

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

    (For the nostalgia)

    • Nick baer says:

      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.

  2. Kostas says:

    Good thing the Yankees are facing a team on the skids. Otherwise this game could be really depressing. #easywinsagainstlosingteams

  3. Dela G says:

    o lets do it!

  4. Greg says:

    We cant lose this game. Not with the Red Sox creeping up from behind

  5. Epy0n says:

    I have a feeling Jeter is going to crack a double. Wishful thinking baby OH YEAAAAAA

  6. Reggie C. says:

    Humber or Hughes? how about humbled?

  7. Mocha Joe says:

    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.

  8. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    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.

  9. Xstar7 says:

    Everyone except A-Rod has given up.

  10. First time lawng time says:

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

  11. mbonzo says:

    Gardner will tie this game with a homerun.

  12. Tom Zig says:

    first spillover of the year?

  13. Stratman9652 says:

    These flyballs are scary.

  14. Kostas says:

    Joba warming up. The effects of a 3yr 45 million contract.

  15. Tom Zig says:

    Don’t bring in Joba. Bring in DRob.

  16. Cy Pettitte says:

    get 2 runs, get AJ the win

  17. jorge brosada says:

    you don’t let AJ go for the CG…right?…

  18. pat says:

    Cannot waste this pitching performance.

  19. Kit says:

    What a great outing, AJ. I’m really proud of you. Please replicate that to some degree in the remaining months of the season. Now let’s score some runs, offense.

  20. Mocha Joe says:

    AJ pitched his heart out tonight and unfortunately will have nothing to show for it unless Posada, Jeter, and Gardner can do something for once this season.

  21. Rob says:

    Didn’t AJ have an exact outing like this last year in KC. I think he gave up one run and some shit pitcher shut us out. Let’s hope the yanks can find a way to win.

  22. Kostas says:

    Yanks were being no hit. 8th inning guy is absent. 7th inning guy may be the 9th inning guy, 9th inning guy is not available….. and Posada is up to bat…. #worldupsidedown.

  23. Urban says:

    Jeter disease continues.

  24. mbonzo says:

    Wow, Sale has really skinny arms.

  25. Cy Pettitte says:

    PH Chavez

  26. King George says:

    God, Jorge just sucks. We’re what, 20 games into the season? Plenty of time to work your kinks out. He is pathetic. I have a considerable amount of faith in Gardner compared to Jorge.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

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

      • King George says:

        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.

  27. Mocha Joe says:

    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.

  28. Rob says:

    How due is jeter for a hr??

  29. jorge brosada says:

    Chavez, so clutch

  30. Mocha Joe says:

    Good. Now Jeter can make his out and not next inning when we actually have a chance to score.

  31. aRX says:

    Please don’t hit a weak grounder to 2nd…PLEASE….

  32. Kostas says:

    How much more ineffective does Posada have to become before he is benched? Chavez has a much quicker bat and can at least hit strikes instead of just mistakes.

  33. Mike Axisa says:

    Yikes, thought he was out.

  34. jorge brosada says:

    thank god nunez..

  35. Nice try running off the field with the ball, Ramirez.

  36. cjc says:

    maybe Gardner will take notes

  37. NHyankeesfan says:

    Gardner should learn form Nunez and learn to steal on the first pitch

  38. Kostas says:

    Not even close.

  39. Cy Pettitte says:

    fucking Jeter

  40. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    This was an extremely odd situation, Nice steal from Nunez. Who the fuck is going to play LF next inning? And Jeter doing his thing. Two years ago he would have gotten the GW hit.

  41. Mike Axisa says:

    Four more years of this frickin’ guy.

    • Urban says:

      Only three. They’ll come to an agreement on the 4th year. He’ll retire and last year will become a personal-services deal that will save the Yankees luxury tax. Unfortunately, there’s still the next three years.

  42. V says:

    Hey Jeter, aren’t you glad you’re earning something ‘fair’?

  43. Mocha Joe says:

    That’s ok, guys. Jeter made hit out and now we have the real hitters coming up in the 9th with no outs.

  44. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Jesus has got to be called up before June.

  45. jorge brosada says:

    Jeter, your god damn terrible. Make some good contact please

  46. swishers fauxhawk says:

    There’s our boy.

    Oh well, onto the 9th.

  47. Brent says:

    Guy is done.

  48. Cy Pettitte says:

    PH Sabathia for Jeter

  49. thaaaaaaayankeeeswin says:

    i Love Jeter, but good lord what the eff is up with all these weak as grounders!!!

    • TheLastClown says:

      He’s old, spiraling fast downwards, and it’s going to be especially painful to watch him exercise his player option in 2014.

      But you already knew that.

  50. Jeter is awful. Captain or not, he’s killing us.

  51. Sheepmeister says:

    Pie??? Yes, I would love some pie tonight.

  52. Greg says:

    WE’re like the early ninety Celtics with aged stars.

  53. Tom Zig says:

    Fun fact:

    The Yankees have 8 former first round picks on their team.

  54. Simon says:

    Derek 1-3ter

  55. fggg says:

    Good fans. “frickin guy”, “CLUTCH”, “fucking Jeter”

    • V says:

      Yes, we should keep rooting for the Yankees to keep one of the worst hitting players on the team in the leadoff spot. That’s what good fans do.

    • First time lawng time says:

      So criticizing a player that’s consistently performed poorly for the past year is a bad fan?

  56. Rob says:

    At least this ensures A-Rod gets an AB, there is no one else I rather up with the game on the line

  57. Kostas says:

    I can’t even defend Jeter anymore.

  58. Cy Pettitte says:

    Kay, what is your definition of “fairly proficient”?

  59. Urban says:

    Ummm, hold on. Where did Andruw Jones go? Why is Nunez one of our OFers?

  60. V says:

    At least we don’t start the 9th with an automatic out.

  61. I saw “Eduardo Nunez, first MLB appearance…” underneath video of Soriano on the mound and somehow my mind freaked out that Nunez was pitching. Took me a second.

  62. Cy Pettitte says:

    fucking Jeter pt. 2

  63. V says:

    Derek Jeter is an awful baseball player. Wow. That happened quickyl.

  64. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Solid offense AND defense. 20 million for 4 years.

  65. A-Rod's Wingman says:


    Is it okay to ask if they were trying or caring on that one?

  66. Urban says:

    Don’t have a melt-down, Soriano. Focus.

  67. jorge brosada says:

    Fucking annoying…watch Soriano implode now…

  68. Tom Zig says:

    3 groundouts for Jeter today. Jeez. Soon to be 75% GB%

  69. thaaaaaaayankeeeswin says:

    enter huge inning here

  70. Mocha Joe says:

    I wish people would stop saying “It’s only one time through the order… It’s only 6 innings…” This is 20 games now of shit by Gardner, Jeter, Swisher, and Posada. And nothing happens to these guys. We have Chavez and Jones on the bench. We can move Jeter down in the lineup but Girardi has his guys and no changes can ever be made. Cashman has to do something.

  71. Stratman9652 says:

    Two feet off the mound. What the fuck Soriano?

  72. Sheepmeister says:

    So Jeter running hard off the bat and can’t make it since Soriano let it go makes him a bad fielder. So its Jeter’s fault and not Soriano???

  73. V says:

    At what point in the season do you start pinch-hitting for Jeter in important game situations?

  74. thaaaaaaayankeeeswin says:

    which team is 8-14 again?

  75. Plank says:

    I can’t see the game. How does “Alexei Ramirez singles on a pop up to Derek Jeter?”

    • S.King says:

      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.

  76. Denver Yankee says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

        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….

  77. jorge brosada says:

    Robbie, your killing me man. Gotta make those plays. Along with the terrible plate discipline today you’ve been extremely frustrating to watch

  78. Tom Zig says:

    Hold onto the ball, next time.

  79. Erica says:


    • Sheepmeister says:

      really, i didn’t realize that the home team automatically loses when they are down 2 runs with half and inning to go?

      • Kostas says:

        normally they don’t but tonight the Yankees are in that “we can make any team in a funk look like contenders mode”.

  80. JerseyDutch says:

    The fans are getting ugly.

  81. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    Well there goes that. Thank you Soriano, you fucking asshole.

  82. jorge brosada says:

    One game, one game i keep telling myself.

    Doesnt change the fact that i want to punch something right now

  83. JobaWockeeZ says:

    If I could change one contract it wouldn’t be Jeter. A reliever should never make half of what Soriano is making.

    • V says:

      At what point do the Steinbrenners fire Randy Levine? Jeter and Soriano’s contracts are on that imbecile, not Cashman.

  84. Cy Pettitte says:

    boo this man


  85. Reggie C. says:

    So … we still got the bottom of the ninth to turn a bad yankees newsday around a bit.

  86. Tom Zig says:

    This is why you don’t sign relievers to multi-year deals.

    • Rookie says:

      Or pitch them four out of five days (unless they’re playing the role of relatively disposable parts as opposed to high end relievers signed to expensive long-term contracts).

  87. thaaaaaaayankeeeswin says:

    Soriano, another case of being a Yankee Killer, but cant Kill as a Yankee

  88. Mocha Joe says:

    Offense failed to put the ballgame away yesterday and only won when Baltimore threw the ball away and now tonight. Gem by Freddy- nothing to show for it. Gem by AJ – Loss to show for it. I am very concerned right now.

  89. jorge brosada says:

    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.

    • CaptainRaf says:

      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.

  90. Tom Zig says:

    That missed, where, exactly?

  91. Cy Pettitte says:

    boo this man again

  92. Pastadivingarod says:

    Nunez threw that like a girl

  93. thaaaaaaayankeeeswin says:

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

  94. Stratman9652 says:

    Compared to Soriano, ARod is becoming simply loveable.

  95. TheLastClown says:

    That was a particularly sexy DP.

  96. CBean says:

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

  97. jorge brosada says:

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

  98. ROBTEN says:

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

  99. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Grandy and ARod in this inning?


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

  101. jorge brosada says:

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

  102. Tom Zig says:

    belly-to-belly FTW

  103. NHyankeesfan says:

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

  104. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:


  105. First time lawng time says:

    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.

  106. JobaWockeeZ says:

    And Arod can’t do it all himself guys.

  107. Cy Pettitte says:

    jesus fucking christ

  108. aRX says:

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

  109. jorge brosada says:

    Teix i will end you.

  110. Kostas says:

    And splat!!!!!

  111. Urban says:

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

  112. icebird753 says:

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

  113. jorge brosada says:

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

  114. Wow. From hopeful to crushed.

  115. TheLastClown says:

    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.

  116. Hummingbird S. says:

    Painful game to watch. Hope they do better tomorrow.

  117. Cy Pettitte says:

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

  118. Simon says:

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

  119. CBean says:

    I hate Ozzie Guillen’s face.

  120. There better be another 15-3 games tomorrow.

  121. Poopy Pants says:

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

  122. wow says:

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

  123. Total Dominication says:

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

    • V says:

      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.

  124. Pat D says:

    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.”

  125. Gonzo says:

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

  126. Kostas says:

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

  127. First time lawng time says:

    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.

  128. Xstar7 says:

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

  129. Jorge says:

    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.

  130. Jorge says:

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

  131. Mocha Joe says:

    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.

  132. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    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.

  133. A-Rod's Wingman says:

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

  134. bonestock94 says:

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