No heartbreak tonight, pls.

Derek Jeter, SS
Nick Swisher, RF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Robinson Cano, 2B
Andruw Jones, LF
Jorge Posada, DH
Russell Martin, C
Curtis Granderson, CF

Bartolo Colon, SP

Apparently the Low-A Charleston squad in the house watching the game tonight, so hopefully some of that Slade Heathcott and J.R. Murphy magic rubs off on some of the big guys. First pitch is scheduled for a little after 7pm ET and can be seen on YES. Enjoy.

    Heathcott is checking out his future roaming grounds. Hopefully he’ll make it after Grandy and Swish leave.

  • squishy jello person

    Just hoping the offense shows up

  • Snake Plissken

    Just win, baby

  • SteveD

    Like the lineup. We know Jeter aint going nowhere. I would like to maybe see Eric Chavez in Posadas place.

    • http://twitter.com/kschmidt2 Kiersten

      I don’t care what hand the opposing pitcher holds the ball with, Curtis Granderson should not be batting ninth. Ridiculous.

      • Kostas

        I can’t believe that you would oppose someone like Grandy batting ninth. You cannot have someone who can’t hit in the 9th spot. How the hell is Jeter going to hit into a double play? That is why Gardner was removed. #duhwinning

  • http://www.twitter.com/jmhs Jake S

    The post is in the “injuries” category. I consider that ominous.

    • squishy jello person

      Uh oh

  • Kostas

    Typically Buerhle has had trouble with the Yankees. Does the absences of any serious offense mean that tonight, Buerhle looks like Cy Young?

  • bakekrukow412

    Yes, Joe, bat Granderson ninth. And keep Jeter leadoff. Perfect.

  • Epy0n

    Only two runs in the last two games. Our offense is way overdue and should start heating up again.

  • billbybob

    Can we start blaming Soriano preemptiveley?

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      Damnit Soriano…

    • http://www.twitter.com/jmhs Jake S

      Hello, aren’t you paying attention? It’s Vasquez’s fault.

    • http://twitter.com/Carlosological Carlosologist

      Soriano’s the new Javy. Whenever something goes wrong, blame Soriano!

      • http://twitter.com/kschmidt2 Kiersten

        I’m not ready to give up on Javy yet…

        • vin

          Or Nick Johnson…

          • JerseyDutch

            Or Carl Pavano.

          • Preston

            And Jeff Weaver is way better than his brother

    • JerseyDutch

      Yes. Even if he doesn’t pitch, it’s his fault for all the stress he’s causing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

    I was thinking before and wouldn’t it make sense for every players agent to just over ride Cashman and talk to Levine?

  • Kostas

    Yankees line tonight:

    Jeter GIDP = even
    No hits before the 5th inning = 2:1
    Posada K’ing >1 = even

    Odds are good.

  • http://www.yankeeanalysts.com/ Matt Imbrogno

    The White Sox love to do the whole bunting thing, huh?

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    When did Girardi replace Ozzie?

  • Cy Pettitte

    95, oooooooooohhhh

  • Bpdelia

    Id like to see montero in osadas place. Nice piece over at tya that perfectly encapsulates what I’ve been thinking. posada isn’t l hitting in bad luck. He looks done. Luckily we have a 21 yr old who all the projections had out producing posada. Montero for dh/buc. We all knew posada wouldn’t see the end of this contact playing everyday. if he isn’t hitting by may z15th he is a wasted roster spot

  • Cy Pettitte

    96, wat

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

    96!

  • Epy0n

    Colon working well so far with the help of the Ump on that last strikeout.

  • JerseyDutch

    This Colon guy could really have a future as a starting pitcher some day.

  • Cy Pettitte

    lol Ozzie tossed already

  • Esteban

    YES not censoring anything. Awesome.

  • Epy0n

    He sure has some class no wonder hes managing the ChiSox.

  • http://twitter.com/Carlosological Carlosologist

    Ozzie with the first inning ejection! Seriously.

  • Epy0n

    I think if Swish gets going today and with Grandy batting last it might add more depth to our lineup.

  • Esteban

    Swisher just needs to hit a HR to get it over with and then he’ll be fine.

  • Erica

    I got up and walked away for a few minutes. What happened that got Ozzie ejected?!

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      He was bitching about strike 3 to Konerko

    • JimAbbottFan

      Konerko was called out on strikes on a low pitch.

  • Kit

    Mark has no idea what just happened.

  • Cy Pettitte

    Tex looks like he was just hit with a bout of amnesia

    • Epy0n

      Yea right. He looked stunned. Three run dinger from CANO LETS DO THIS.

  • Esteban

    Arod should have done that last night. Choker.

    /notserious

  • baravelli

    I’m pretty sure Leiter just said P-Rod.

    • JerseyDutch

      He seems to have a lot of trouble with names. He’s calls Colon Bar-tall-o.

  • JerseyDutch

    If they bunt, I may have to turn to heavy drinking.

  • JimAbbottFan

    revenge.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Drilled, baby, drilled.

  • Alex S

    LAZER!

  • Kit

    Robbie!

  • Erica

    ROBBIE! THERE IT IS! DON’TCHA KNOW!

  • Esteban

    Don’t hurt ‘em Robinson!

  • Cy Pettitte

    lol Robbie beast mode, that was so fucking pretty I teared up

  • Sean C

    More of THAT.

  • JerseyDutch

    About freaking time.

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    BOOOOOMMMM!!!

  • jorge brosada

    prettiest swing in the game

  • Ben from Stanford

    Catch that, Lillibridge!

  • baravelli

    Hey look – John Waters caught that home run!

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

    You can put it on the booooooooooooard … YES!

  • Rob

    Much rather that have been kept in the park

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      +1

    • Esteban

      Keep the rally going instead of killing it with runs!

  • DCBX

    Hola Sr. Buehrle! Y adios!

  • Erica

    I hope Andruw Jones is playing in the game I’m going to on Sunday. Really, really, really hope so.

  • a plethora of pinatas

    The offense we know and love…..

  • Brooklyn Ed

    A-Rod and Cano to RF: try to catch that.

  • Cy Pettitte

    @OzzieGuillen “This one going to cost me a lot money this is patetic”, “Today a tough guy show up a yankee stadium”

    I love that he’s tweeting from the clubhouse

  • JerseyDutch

  • Epy0n

    I am dying.

  • http://www.freewebs.com/yankeesfansunite/apps/blog/ Matt

    Andruw Jones can’t field but he sure can hit.

  • jorge brosada

    umpire, if you don’t start giving Bartolo some calls, he will sit on you

  • Esteban

    Just the tip

    of the glove

  • BklynJT

    Cano’s fielding has sucked this year…. how many times has he dropped a ball that he had in his glove. I cant count several runs it has cost the Yankees

    • Esteban

      Or that was a tough play that he almost made. Either one.

      • BklynJT

        If its in the webbing of the glove, it should be caught.

        • Esteban

          Have you played baseball before? It’s not that simple.

        • JerseyDutch

          So by that logic, if a ball hits the bat, it should be a hit?

      • Sean C

        And he can’t count several runs that Cano’s cost the Yankees. We’re in the clear.

        • Kit

          IETC.

  • Rob

    crazy movement on that pitch

  • jorge brosada

    Bartolo trying to grunt and fart his way out of this one

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    That pitch was sick.

  • jorge brosada

    I’m pleasantly surprised Bartolo moved to cover home plate on that.

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    Bartolo’s a beast!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Cy Young.

  • Kit

    Good job, Bart.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Colon is slick.

  • JerseyDutch

    Nice Houdini act, Bartolo.

  • mike c

    the fat man rocks!

  • jorge brosada

    Wow Bartolo, that was freakin awesome

  • Cy Pettitte

    Cy Colon

    that was masterful

  • JimAbbottFan

    That was some fine pitching.

  • Ben from Stanford

    Well that was awesome.

  • AndrewYF

    I can’t believe I’m saying this…I’m very happy Bartolo Colon is pitching for the Yankees.

    • Bob Stone

      I can’t believe it either but I am beginning to believe in this guy.

      • Cy Pettitte

        I feel dirty because I actually look forward to his starts and enjoy watching him pitch

  • Kostas

    Ozzie in the clubhouse tweeting… Love it!

  • OldYanksFan

    Looking at it now, I don’t think Colon was a typical scrap heap pickup. They scouted him, and his velo and movement didn’t lie. I’m sure they weren’t expecting him to be this good, but I think they expected him to be better then the average junk pickup.

  • Freddy’s Mom

    Whoa, tuned in late, whappened with Guillen? Please inform me…

    • Kit

      He was ejected between half innings in the first for arguing a low strike 3 call on Konerko.

  • Bob Stone

    That was an awesome play by Buerle.

  • OldYanksFan

    “You can’t measure heart”.

  • mike c

    colon’s cutter has been absolutely nasty, the ball looks like it’s breaking almost a foot before it comes into the zone

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Jeter proving his contract isn’t the worst from the offseason.

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      RACK ‘EM UP!!!

  • baravelli

    Even though that was a ground ball, it’s encouraging to see Jeter hit the ball with authority to the right side, which means his swing is doing what it should.

    • Bob Stone

      I am hoping for a Jeter comeback but I am not convinced yet. And . . yes . . I know we are dealing with a very small sample size.

    • Esteban

      I think I’ve seen some progress with Jeter. I hope I’m not just imagining it though.

    • Bob Stone

      I bothers me that ARod worked hard with the hitting coach and has had results but Jeter gave up on the coache’s ideas.

      • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

        Jeter is above the team, he looks down on people like Kevin Long.

        • mike c

          so jeter wouldn’t sign your baseball?

      • OldYanksFan

        I can understand nixing the idea of eliminating the top-tap. After 16 years, that’s a tough change to make. But mayve he could open his stance a tad, and not stride into the plate, si he wasn’t so tied up on inside pitches.

        • Bob Stone

          Most Hall of Fame players have had to make some adjustments in their respective games as they age. I don’t see Jeter embracing that concept. I hope he isn’t so stubborn that he makes this new contract look like a total disaster.

  • jorge brosada

    man swisher has been just awful. Starting to get a little frustrating

    • JerseyDutch

      He’s starting to swing at those high fastballs like Robbie.

    • Epy0n

      He just looks like he is getting straight up fooled on pitches.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

    Wasn’t Soriano not a closer before the Rays?

    • a plethora of pinatas

      no, set-up man.

      • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

        Exactly, so why is it so hard for him to be a set up man again.

      • a plethora of pinatas

        sorry, yes he was for the Braves in 2009…..along with Mike Gonzalez.

  • jorge brosada

    Love the DP there, but did Bartolo actually jump there? It look like he tried to, but his feet didnt leave the ground

    • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

      When Bartolo jumps, his gravitation field pulls the Earth up with him

      • jorge brosada

        that sounds scientifically correct

        • Bob Stone

          Funny

    • jon

      I think i felt him land

      and i live in maine

  • Rob

    Is modell’s selling colon t-shirts yet?

    • Cy Pettitte

      I’d like some Colon Cologne so I can smell like a winner

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      Is there any chance that Bartolo comes out for the 7th, or is it the Seventh Inning Guy?

  • Mocha Joe

    Bartolo Colon is the best free agent pickup the Yankees have had since Paul O’Neill. It’s so comforting to have a shut down power pitcher like him on the mound to put an end to the losing streak.

    • jon

      that CC guys been pretty good too

    • http://www.twitter.com/jordansmed JGS

      There are so many things wrong with this statement.

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

      1. Better than Sabathia?

      2. O’Neill wasn’t a free agent. They traded for him.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Bravo.

    • Cy Pettitte

      maximum trolling

    • JerseyDutch

      You funny.

    • Bob Stone

      Paul O’neill was NOT a free agent pick up. He was acquired in a trade with Cincy for Roberto Kelly.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Well Jamie Moyer is one if I heard the question right.

    • jon

      non pitcher

  • Epy0n

    Are you kidding me? That two-seamer is beautiful effectively neutralizing both sides of the plate.

  • Cy Pettitte

    that two-seamer is so unfair

  • swishers fauxhawk

    That kid really wanted that ball.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Don’t get injured Colon. He’s like our number two now.

  • jon

    I wonder what AJ said to colon

  • jorge brosada

    What did Pierzinski or however u spell his name say to Bartolo?

    • Tank the Frank

      What happened?

      • jon

        nothing, it looked like they were laughing. When colon was walking off the mound AJ said something to colon and colon tapped him with his glove

  • Cy Pettitte

    Strike zone is expanding faster than Colon’s waistline

  • Kostas

    How much longer can Girardi keep running Posada out there?

    • Tank the Frank

      Just imagine, he wanted to be the full-time catcher.

      • Kostas

        Frightening. Sad though that these guys, including Jeter, consistently overstate their own value and refuse to step aside.

        • Tank the Frank

          Wouldn’t you? Besides, it’s completely possible that Jorge turns in a nice season at DH and Jeter can play an average shortstop for another couple years. His contract was mostly for name value. It is what it is.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    So apparently everything is a strike now.

  • Epy0n

    I cringe when I see that haaarible check swing Posada does. -_-

  • OldYanksFan

    Is Colon eating something out there on the mound?

    • Cy Pettitte
      • JimAbbottFan

        I always thought he chewed on bacon fat.

    • DCBX

      Watching on GameCast… please tell me that was some kind of joke. Though, if he stays this effective, he can have his donut on the mound for all I care. :D

    • mike c

      nothing wrong with having a little snack in between pitches, I think he might be keeping a stash of mini snickers in his glove

      • DCBX

        Reminds me of Phil Niekro smoking Marlboros in the clubhouse between innings. Ha!

  • Kostas

    Just saw Ortiz get thrown out at home. That has to be one of the ugliest slides and moments in baseball history.

  • Tank the Frank

    Can Colon continue to be effective (not expecting this level of success of course) throwing what amounts to two types of one pitch? You have to figure hitters will start making adjustments at some point, and that he’ll have to start mixing in something offspeed more frequently.

    • Cy Pettitte

      If he can keep throwing 93-96 with that kind of movement I don’t see why not

    • DCBX

      Well, the best pitcher I have ever seen in person throws 1 type of 1 pitch. Just sayin’.

      Big Bart ain’t R.A. Dickey, his resume indicates otherwise, you know?

    • Wandering Bear

      They won’t be able to figure out that movement. Colon has been our ace the past couple starts and he will continue to be so all year.

      • Tank the Frank

        That’s a BOLD statement. Consider it bookmarked.

  • jorge brosada

    You don’t fucks with the Bartolo.

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

      That is the opposite of surprising.

      • Tank the Frank

        So what you’re saying is that it’s unsurprising. Ok check.

  • Tank the Frank

    I know the Yankees are winning thanks to a bloop hit and Robbie ran into one, but the bats are REALLY slumping right now. They’re really not taking good swings today.

    • Wandering Bear

      But the difference tonight is Bartolo. As long as he can go 8 we should be able to win the game. The offense has done enough in the majority of our games to win but Hughes lost 3, Soriano lost 2, and Mo lost 1. The offense will be just fine.

      • Tank the Frank

        I know they’ll be fine I’m simply stating an observation. But this team will finish the season leading the AL in runs…just like every season.

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

          The bats are struggling, there’s no denying it. I think it has more to do with the ups and downs of the season than it does some fatal flaw.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        They’ve had like 4 quality starts in a row. This isn’t over yet.

  • jorge brosada

    Bartolo will be the WS MVP, book it.

    Also it looks like Bartolo ate Alexei Ramirez for dinner.

    • toad

      I’m thinking Cy Young.

  • DCBX

    Side note: Why does ESPN still have Colon’s ChiSox team photo up on GameCast? Damn, update already!

  • jorge brosada

    Bad luck for Bartolo. Stupid well-placed grounders

    Don’t hide the smile, Bartolo.

  • http://. Greg

    Looking at the early standings, no team in baseball has truly established themselves. Lowest loss total is 7 by the Rockies. Only three teams in the AL have under 10 losses, Yankees Indians and the Rangers

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    Is there any chance that Bartolo comes out for the 7th or is it the Seventh Inning Guy?

    • Cy Pettitte

      I think he can handle 8-9-1 and he’s only at 83 pitches

  • jorge brosada

    Jesus christ Robbie, would it kill you to take a damn walk?

    • http://. Greg

      It was a 3-1 count.

      • jorge brosada

        yeah and then he swung at a bad pitch

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Score a lot so I don’t need to so JoSoMo please.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

    Bartolo needs to stay out there to keep the ball out of Soriano’s hand next inning

    • Rey22

      He’s not pitching today regardless, but I agree, Bartolo for the 8th. Good pitch count going.

    • Mariano’s Pimp Hand

      His pitch count is low enough that Joe could let him go all the way. That’s not likely to happen but if the 8th is an easy inning Joe should let him go.

  • 28 this year

    Colon for the 8th? I wouldn’t mind seeing that cause I don’t really want D-Rob warming up again.

  • Pasqua

    Bartolo should be The Eighth Inning Guy (TM) tonight!

  • Rob

    if Joe takes colon out for the 8th, im driving to the stadium and slapping him.

    • DCBX

      I live on 165th anyway, I will catch him on the way home for ya.

  • boogie down

    I don’t understand why MLB doesn’t always run a variety of commercials featuring kids like that ChiSox fan at ballgames. It’s ready-made gold.

    • nedro

      not much for sap, but that kid was pretty friggin cute.

      • YanksFan in MA

        meh. His finish with his hands was a little too high for my taste. His tee ball coach needs to get on that shit.

  • a plethora of pinatas

    If Bartolo holds on for the win the news headlines should read:

    “White Sox Colon cleansed by the Yankees”

    • DCBX

      WIN!

    • boogie down

      hahaha yes!

  • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

    Cashman looks like a genius
    Bartolo – Beast mode
    Garcia – Doing very well
    Chaves – Probably the best infield bench option I have seen in a long time
    Jones – Thames bat with defense

    Kudos Cash

    • V

      There’s also this guy named Russell Martin.

      • Erica

        Oh yes, he of red and white fingernails. That guy.

      • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

        And hes on my fantasy team too, shame on me.

    • Rob

      not to mention he was anti soriano

    • JobaWockeeZ

      He should be refrained from signing relief pitchers though.

      • http://. Greg

        That wasn’t Cashman. That was Levine panicking about the free agents being signed around him.

        • Cy Pettitte

          Feliciano, Marte

          • http://. Greg

            Marte was the bullpen mvp in 2009 postseason

        • JobaWockeeZ

          Feliciano was on him. Farnsworth. The Marte extension. Soriano is definitely the worst signing of the bunch by far but Cash’s record on relief pitching ain’t hot either.

          • http://. Greg

            I was talking about Soriano only.

    • CMP

      Hate to rain on your parade but lets fast forward to the most likely scenario come July 1st.

      Colon: out of gas and essentially useless for the remainder of the season.
      Garcia: pitching at replacement level with an FIP around 5.00
      Chaves: residing back in his natural habitat on the DL
      Jones: hitting .220 with an OBP of .300 with average defense in the corners

      Let’s not light up any cigars just yet considering its April 27th

      • DCBX

        Colon: not buying. He’s the real deal, fat SOB and all. I dunno about all this ace and WS MVP stuff, but with Hughes gone possibly for months or the year, I can see an All-Star spot.

        Garcia: agree. This will not last.

        Chavez: History indicates this is the case.

        Jones: .220? Under .280 sure, but .220? Doubt it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

        I am glad we have Nostradamus on RAB.

  • jorge brosada

    Derek jeter just wants to be done for the night. 1 more 1 pitch ground out should do the trick

  • nedro

    Colon in the 8th! Sweet!

  • Kostas

    This offense is just horrible right now…

  • nedro

    Do I smell a CG? Nah, Joe would never…

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      When was the last time a Yankee actually pitched a 9 inning complete game?

      • JobaWockeeZ

        I’m guessing CC. There were a couple in 2010 right?

    • Rey22

      No need to push it with Colon in April, the guy hasn’t pitched consistently in the majors for a couple of years now.

    This could be the right move letting Colon pitch the 8th. Gotta stop the bleeding from the offense and Soriano.

  • jorge brosada

    Bartolo still cranking out 96 mph heat. Holy crap

  • jorge brosada

    Ugh, Jeter.

  • YanksFan in MA

    Dammit I was just about to get all excited about a Jeter play. Oh well.

  • Cy Pettitte

    can we please get Quentin out just once

  • nedro

    I cant believe hes still throwing 96 after 90+ pitches…

  • DCBX

    So…. does Big Bart wear 40 because that’s what he’s got instead of a 6-pack?

    I’m here all night, try the fish…

    • Cy Pettitte

      40 chins

      • DCBX

        I laughed.

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      I had the veal. Best in the city…

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    RACK ‘EM UP BOYS!!!

  • Erica

    SWEET double play. Bartolo for President! (But… would we have to demand HIS birth certificate?)

  • jorge brosada

    Bartolo is awesome. Love how he does that little clap for himself on his glove

  • AndrewYF

    Colon Logan-proofed the inning. Thank god.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Fuck it let him get the complete game.

    • http://. Greg

      You dare to question Rivera?

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Save the bullets especially when they are 42 years old.

        • Pasqua

          Nah. This is why Rivera is here. Save a close game, especially after two frustrating losses. I think saving a bullet can be equivalent to wasting it sometimes…like tonight.

    • nedro

      never happen. i’d be shocked.

  • swishers fauxhawk

    I like Bartolo Colon.

  • nedro

    Holy…

    What the fuck, that was masterful.

  • Cy Pettitte

    they should give Colon Come Back Player of the Year just for this performace

  • YanksFan in MA

    Wow. What a performance. I’d say arguably best pitched game this season by a starter. Love to see him out there in the 9th. I’d bet Joe can’t resist Mo though. Bet if they won yesterday he’d think differently.

    • AndrewYF

      I can’t remember the last time a Yankee starter pitched in the 9th when it was a save situation.

      • DCBX

        I suspect that it was in the 90s, but not quite motivated enough for Google.

  • swishers fauxhawk

    Bartolo can hit 96, but Phil Hughes can’t hit 90. #wat

    • Epy0n

      I know right. It’s like we are almost hoping its an injury and not him just being bad. Right? I dont know much optimism about Hughes but Colon snapping bitches in half I like.

    • Frigidevil

      96 in the 8th!!!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Oh FML don’t get hurt Teix.

    • jorge brosada

      what?

  • a plethora of pinatas

    What happened to Tex?

    • bobtaco

      Possibly tweaked something coming off the bag for the Jeter throw? Just a guess…

  • Kit

    Oh please don’t be hurt, Tex.

  • Ben from Stanford

    Does A-Rod have an entire hamster in his mouth for this at-bat?

  • Erica

    We NEED you Tex.

  • jorge brosada

    What happened to Teix?? I missed it

    • ROBTEN

      They don’t know. Nothing has been announced yet.

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    Would cano die if he took a pitch?

  • YanksFan in MA

    A-Rod is slumping. Always thought you could tell when he wasn’t at his best when he looks a little off balance on pitches he takes. When he is going well he just spits on the pitch.

  • Rob

    Could this be the shortest yankee game ever????

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      I think Buehrle always ranks among the top in fastest games. His games average like 2:30.

  • Adam

    I will just add right now that I sat through a game with Hawk Harrelson on the mic to be able to watch the Yanks on my tv. I need this win to feel better.

    • YanksFan in MA

      He must have liked that call on Dunn.

      • nedro

        Worse calls than that last night…

        • Adam

          He was very upset that the ump would do that to the team that he refers to playing for, even though he sits in a broadcast booth.

  • nedro

    At least Mo looks, well, like Mo.

  • thaaaaaaayankeeeswin

    that call makes up for alllll the bs strike zone over the last 2 days

  • nedro

    Jesus, there goes my last fingernail

  • http://twitter.com/Carlosological Carlosologist

    Jesus, Pierzynski will not die. Get it done Mo!

  • Erica

    YES! WIN! PERFECT!

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    CoMo>>>>>>>>>>>>JoSoMo

    • Cy Pettitte

      put the sox bats in a coma

    • a plethora of pinatas

      We should sign Trevor Hoffman so that we could have…..well, you know……….Ho….

  • swishers fauxhawk

    Game time: Extremely quick.

  • jorge brosada

    Suck it AJ. Awesome performance from Mr. Bartolo

  • a plethora of pinatas

    I hate AJ Pierznskfyjdhy

    • Pasqua

      If it helps, apparently so does half of baseball.

  • a plethora of pinatas

    Colon cleansed!!!

  • DGeezy

    Michael Kay “You can put it on the left side”

    Haha, shot at the chicago announcers?

  • http://www.CarlsYankeeDugout.com Carl

    This one sure went quickly tonight. What a performance by Colon.

  • First time lawng time

    Lol I like how Cano rolls his Rs when he talks.

    • a plethora of pinatas

      What if he slurred his S’s???

  • New Kid

    Did the announcers make any snide comments like cone did last time about BoToLo’s weight?
    Plus, anyone ever ask Mo to have this song as his entrance:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dumqStn1oQY

    • bakekrukow412

      He already has Metallica’s Enter Sandman. Kind of hard to top that.

  • Epy0n

    I wonder how much Ozzy’s cry baby reaction caused the UMP to sway some strikes towards our side. Good going Ozzy you douche.

  • Wandering Bear

    If we are fortunate enough to make the playoffs Bartolo Colon will be our Game 1 starter.

  • Kit

    Did Joe say Thoracic outlet syndrome was the possible diagnosis on Hughes’ tests? My brother was the one listening to the post-game show and totally forgot what was just said. Could only remember the “thoracic” part.

  • Monteroisdinero

    Colon was the shits.

  • Monteroisdinero

    So Andruw Jones compared Cano’s swing to Aaron and Ruth? Don’t insult Robbie like that Andruw.

  • First time lawng time

    Since when does Colon not speak English?

    • Monteroisdinero

      Since 1974.

      • First time lawng time

        Lol how do Girardi and Martin communicate with him on the mound? Does Cano translate?

        • Monteroisdinero

          They didn’t have to communicate. Girardi said muy bien after the game. ARod and Cano can translate if need be.

  • First time lawng time

    Ew what is that on Tex’s lower lip?
    OMG herpes!

  • jon

    yankees in first place
    red sox in last place

    all is right with the world
