Game 33: Back Home

By

Nope. (AP Photo/LM Otero)

A seven-game swing through Detroit and Texas isn’t the most grueling of baseball road trips, but the games themselves were pretty tough. The starting pitchers had to grind a few games out, the offense tirelessly stranded baserunners like it was going out of style, and all those games came at the back end of a 16-in-16 stretch. I’m sure yesterday’s day off helped recharge the batteries, I know I enjoyed it, and hopefully the Yankees are ready to go to town during this quick six-game homestand. Here’s tonight’s lineup…

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

Freddy Garcia, SP

First pitch is scheduled for a little after 7pm ET and can be seen on YES. Enjoy.

Notes: The Royals placed Bruce Chen on the disabled list, so the Yankees will face Jersey’s own Vin Mazzaro tomorrow … Phil Hughes expects to start throwing on Thursday, and hopes to be back within six-to-eight weeks. Good luck with that, kiddo. Seriously, good luck.

Shameless Plug: Check out Take on Russ tomorrow morning from 11am-noon. Click the link for details.

  1. I’m sure yesterday’s day off helped recharge the batteries, I know I enjoyed it.

    /RiverAveHookers’d

  2. Cy Pettitte says:

    Vin Mazzaro? nice, they smacked him around last year

  3. Esteban says:

    Roger Maris better pick up the pace or the Yankees might need to look for another outfielder.

  4. Francis says:

    “They were all great to me,” Cabrera said through an interpreter. “It felt like home when I was playing there. But especially my best friend, Robinson Cano. I really miss him. I really want to spend some time with him and see how the family is doing and chat a little bit”

    -Melky Cabrera

    Cue the Cano and Melky jokes in 3, 2, 1…

  5. Xstar7 says:

    MELKYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!

  6. IRF says:

    Mediocre Melky introduction

  7. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    Melky doin the small things!!!!

  8. first time lawng time says:

    Why do Flaherty and Nancy Newman have the jobs they have? I find nothing appealing about them.

  9. first time lawng time says:

    So the team with the most runs score has Melky batting second…whaaaaat?

  10. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    Like it Freddy, worry about the batter.

  11. IRF says:

    Chris Getz for Brett Gardner

    Make it happen

  12. Cy Pettitte says:

    they could quite possibly steal 10 bases against sweaty freddy tonight

  13. BillR says:

    God Freddy throws SLOOOOOOOW

  14. Watch that ump punchout! THAT’S WHAT THE PAYING FANS CAME HERE TO SEE, BLUE! GIVE US A SHOW!

    ENTERTAIN ME, UMP!

  15. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Kyle Davies is really good.

  16. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Melky gets the role call! Whoo.

  17. Slugger27 says:

    heh, melky gets a roll call

  18. Cy Pettitte says:

    Jeter batting .000 during this 6 game homestand, DFA him

  19. V says:

    That first strike on Granderson was probably the worst strike call I’ve EVER seen. A fucking foot above the strike zone.

  20. Esteban says:

    Embarrassing, Freddy Garcia getting outpitched by Kyle Davies. KYLE DAVIES!!!!

  21. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Duffy only 68? Wow.

  22. Esteban says:

    Based on that swing, no Francouer has not improved his plate discipline.

  23. IRF says:

    Ok, Swish HAS to be miked. No human can curse that loud

    • IRF says:

      I like how Flaherty compared him to A-rod, then talked about how you can tell how strong Chambliss was.

  24. Cy Pettitte says:

    no hit through two, engage panic mode

  25. first time lawng time says:

    Looks like a pitcher’s duel.

  26. CBean says:

    there goes Freddy’s no-hitter.

  27. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    That defiantly wasn’t a balk
    Thankfully they saw that…

  28. CBean says:

    ok i’m listening to this on the radio as i’m still stuck at work. what the hell is going on?

    • Cy Pettitte says:

      Treanor broke for 2nd, Freddy stepped off, faked to 1st and then got him at 2nd. Umps were debating if it was a balk because he might not have fully disengaged from the rubber. Called him out, then called a balk, then called him out again.

    • Delaware - Ralph says:

      Running took of from first, Garcia stepped off mound, faked a throw to first since the runner was not headed towards second (had to step off in order to fake the throw) and then got the out at second. Original call was a balk.

  29. first time lawng time says:

    Can someone help me out. What exactlyis a balk? What qualifies it? (yes I’ve looked it up and I’m still confused)

    • -Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it “a balk”, which of course in German means a whale’s vagina.
      -No, there’s no way that’s correct.
      -I’m sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don’t know what it means. I’ll be honest, I don’t think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

    • Nedro says:

      A pitcher who reaches his “set” and subsequently makes a move to the plate without delivering the ball has “balked” and a base is rewarded to any runner already on.

  30. Kostas says:

    21 pitches through 2 innings and no hits? This is Kyle Davies pitching, correct?

    • Cy Pettitte says:

      the best part is they showed in the pregame how like 6 of the 9 yankee hitters have >.330 BAs against him and of those 3 of them were >.500

  31. Turk Turkleton says:

    Alcides Escober is an attractive man, and a great bunter.

  32. Kostas says:

    Read an interesting stat today. Through April 29th, for all of MLB, hitters had a .201 when there was an attempt to steal a base…. Johnny Damon for example had up to that date 7 AB’s where there as a stolen base attempt. He was 0-7 with 5k’s. Will find it and post.

  33. Mykey says:

    I love how aggressive they’re going to be against Martin. He’s awesome.

  34. Cy Pettitte says:

    Cano didn’t get a hit that 1st AB because Melky distracted him during batting practice

  35. first time lawng time says:

    Awwwww Cano and Melky had such a cute friendship.

  36. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    They gave us all 3 outs in that inning with the 2 caught stealings and the bunt popup.

  37. Cy Pettitte says:

    Jorge needs a dugout hobby like whittling or knitting

  38. CBean says:

    At least Brett remembers that Davies isn’t a very good pitcher. We should stop making him look like an ace.

  39. Cy Pettitte says:

    BG FTW

  40. Mike Axisa says:

    Sheesh, you see that replay from the CF camera? Gardner was already passed first and on his way to second by the time the ball landed.

  41. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Triple rhymes with nipple.

  42. JD says:

    Is it just me or is Gardner hitting the ball with more authority? Less slappy slappy doubles more hard hit balls

  43. Esteban says:

    Hopefully they score again this series!!

  44. Cy Pettitte says:

    Captain Clutch it is GREAT to have you back

  45. boogie down says:

    Please let this continue

  46. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Captain Clutch FTW

  47. CBean says:

    Captain!

  48. Erica says:

    JETES! Oh, my heart. It is singing.

  49. bonestock94 says:

    Jeter looked downright Jeterian there. What a relief to see a pulse the past few games.

  50. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Runs, run, runs, runs, runs, til her daddy take her T-bird awayyyy.

    Wait, how does that song go again?

  51. jon says:

    the death of Derick Jeter has been greatly over exaggerated

  52. Esteban says:

    Coasting along? C’mon it was like 2.2 innings.

  53. Nedro says:

    Way to manufacture that run, boys!
    Not that we needed to, we hits homahs!

  54. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    It sucks when shitty pitchers have the good mean reversion against the Yankees, Kyle Davies may just be the worst starting pitcher ever (to pitch a certain amount of innings).

  55. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Lol Melky.

  56. Cy Pettitte says:

    fucking Melky

  57. Mike Axisa says:

    Look at this fuckin’ guy.

  58. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Way to give it right back, Freddy. Idiot.

  59. CBean says:

    Dammit Melky!

  60. first time lawng time says:

    Melky!!!!!!

  61. IRF says:

    Hahahahahaha…that’s the most entertaining homer the Yanks will give up this year

  62. bakekrukow412 says:

    The Melkman delivers.

  63. Esteban says:

    Should of kept MELKY!

    • jon says:

      no way, home runs are the yankees problem

      gardnes triple was way better than meklys homer

      • Esteban says:

        Completely disagree. Gardner just takes pitches and strikes out in big spots, while Melky Just Knows How To Get The Run In (TM). Is it a coincidence that the Yankees haven’t won a WS since Melky was on the team? I think not.

  64. Erica says:

    Freakin’ Melky, y’know?

  65. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    At least it was Melky. If it was Francoeur, I would have murdered the neighbor’s child.

  66. JD says:

    Honestly, I was happy when he hit that home run. Didnt bother me that it is all tied up it was a solo shot to dead center, and its the Melkman. How can you hate that?

  67. Xstar7 says:

    MELKYYY!!!!!!

  68. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Tex is gonna homer.

  69. IRF says:

    Number 500, here it comes

  70. Mike Axisa says:

    Carlos Beltran the trivia answer? I know he won it one of those years, and I figure the Royals are probably involved somehow.

  71. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    A-Rod bein’ a bitch…

  72. Cy Pettitte says:

    so many pop ups

  73. BigTimeBartolo says:

    jesus christ Arod. Fucking terrible

  74. jjyank says:

    Man if you had told me that Garcia would have a sub-3 ERA over a month into the season back when they signed him, I’d have called you nuts.

  75. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Axisa, are you an AC/DC fan?

  76. jjyank says:

    Come on Jorge, we could use some stat correction on that .150 BA here…

  77. IRF says:

    An 89 MPH fastball right down the middle on a 3-2 pitch and Swish hits a lazy flyball. Grrrr

  78. So why is Martin hitting in back of both Swish and Posada.

  79. Cy Pettitte says:

    fail. 4-6-7- = black hole

  80. Esteban says:

    Yankees first in OBP, first in runs, 1st in HRs, but we’re supposed to be worried because they’re 7th in average? Please, the too many homers thing is funny as a meme, but really needs to die as a serious talking point and question they ask players and coaches.

  81. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Swisher and Posada. That’s a scary 6-7 punch.

  82. Esteban says:

    Hey I played baseball with a kid that played at Concordia. Aviles apparently worked out there all the time.

    /cool story bro.

  83. Stratman9652 says:

    Brackman getting smacked around in the bottom of the fourth. The games actually on air if you get Time Warner. Dude is rediculously tall.

  84. JohnnyC says:

    Seriously, Jorge might have to be released if he’s still this much below the Mendoza line come June. Can’t see him just sitting on the end of the bench twiddling his thumbs for the rest of the season.

  85. Greg says:

    I thought we were going to kill Kyle Davies

  86. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Rutherford, New Jersey = The World’s Asshole.

  87. Esteban says:

    Matt Treanor is 2-2, embarrassing.

  88. inpinstripes says:

    Attaboy Swish!!!

  89. Cy Pettitte says:

    holy shit, that could have been bad

  90. nedro says:

    sweet fuckin catch, swish!!!

  91. IRF says:

    Swishalicous!!!

  92. jjyank says:

    Ok so lets say its a week into June, and Posada is still hitting below .200. I love the guy, has been my favorite position player growing up behind Bernie (and now behind Cano as well), but I want the Yanks to win more than I want Posada to have a roster spot. I know Montero is doing well but he’s not hitting for power and still has some defensive issues to work on in AAA. So assuming this scenario plays out with Posada, what do you think the Yanks do? Call up Montero? Make a trade? Jorge Vazquez? Or someone else?

  93. Holy shit, when did his average get that low?

  94. No!!! No fucking bunts!!!

  95. Gardy looks like he did this time last year.

  96. IRF says:

    Gardner has looked about as good as any player in baseball in the last two weeks

  97. Cy Pettitte says:

    yeaaaaaaa Jetah

  98. CBean says:

    Jeter hitting makes me so happy!

  99. Cy Pettitte says:

    Leiter’s swing…dear lord

  100. Stratman9652 says:

    Watching the Scanton game… Montero is really flinching as he catches the ball. What the hell is up with that? Apparenly already let a few balls go to the backstop. Also, Brackman can’t buy a damn out right about now.

  101. Esteban says:

    Turn back the clock week with Jeter. Did he start rocking the high fade again?

  102. Really Kay? Even I knew it was an out, and I only have the YEs camera.

  103. MikeD says:

    Tex, we need a rally-killing HR, now.

  104. jon says:

    time for arod to pass the iron horse

  105. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    “Ow, shit”

  106. Erica says:

    WHY is Tex such a magnet for getting HBP?

  107. Uhh, now would be a good time to not be slumping Alex.

  108. Cy Pettitte says:

    Tex gets hit of course, dude is a magnet

    If ARod pops up I will break something

  109. CBean says:

    Dear Alex, you know what to do. Love, Me.

  110. Xstar7 says:

    Now would be a nice time to break out of your slump A-Rod.

  111. mbonzo says:

    They keep saying that Davies is a better pitcher than his numbers say. What do you guys think?

    IMO He’s rocking a 5.01 FIP. He’s probably a mid 4 ERA guy at his best.

  112. jjyank says:

    Hah, ok who is worse at calling fly balls off the bat: Kay or Sterling?

  113. Oh god, fix that average Alex.

  114. Esteban says:

    Damn it Alex, you gotta kill that 2-0.

  115. Mike Axisa says:

    Holy cow, how did Davies pitch count get in the 90′s already? That was fast.

  116. nedro says:

    Rye bread. Mustard. Please.

  117. Cy Pettitte says:

    oh thank god

  118. Esteban says:

    Yes! It wasn’t a rally-killing homer!

  119. Mike Myers says:

    nyyyyyyyyyyyyyce

  120. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Singles are for pussies. I’m done with this team.

  121. Xstar7 says:

    There you go Alex, there you go

  122. Yes!!!!!!!! Let that be the slump-buster, please let it be the slump-buster.

  123. IRF says:

    Escobar has been doing his best Derek Jeter impression this game.

    Also, yay slump-busting

  124. Tony S says:

    i just got in – did melky get a standing O????

  125. mbonzo says:

    I’m feeling a homerun here from Robbie. My daily HR call.

  126. Mike Myers says:

    this inning has to be it either way right? Get that mid pen in!

  127. BigTimeBartolo says:

    Alex got lucky, he still looks pretty bad at the plate.

    I’ll take it though

  128. Jose the Satirist says:

    Yankees have to keep the lead in this game. Tampa is tied for the division lead and that would be a catastrophic failure to be behind them.

  129. first time lawng time says:

    Why does Cano go on his knees after every swing?
    Doesn’t seem good. He should probably fix that.

  130. Teh Comp Pick says:

    ::Realizes Melky has more rbi than A-Rod::

    ::Head Explodes::

  131. Greg says:

    ESPN showing the Four Days in October movie. What a fucking surprise.

  132. Jonathan says:

    Frank White: “It’s almost like they’re a 9 inning team.”

    God damn MLB Extra Innings blackout

  133. first time lawng time says:

    Lol was that Melky who just shouted?

  134. Xstar7 says:

    MELKYYY!!!!!!!

  135. Don’t look now, but Jeter is closing in on 290.

  136. Freddy is on a complete game pace.

  137. Mike Axisa says:

    Tim Collins sure is fun to watch. Tiny little lefty, no one can really touch him. He’s the anti-LOOGY though.

  138. MikeD says:

    What is this guy, like 5’2″. He makes Pedroia look like a basketball player.

  139. nedro says:

    Time to feast on this ‘pen.

  140. jon says:

    wow this guy is fun to watch with that crazy setup

  141. Mike Myers says:

    this has to be it for posada. you know he is bad when im praying for him to get hit.

  142. MikeD says:

    Bullshit. He’s not 5’7″.

  143. Esteban says:

    Who’s grittier: Tim Collins or Pedroia?

  144. Cy Pettitte says:

    6-7 black hole strikes again

  145. King George says:

    JORGE. COME ON.

  146. Erica says:

    Watching Po is just painful.

  147. jon says:

    posada need more piss on his hands

  148. bonestock94 says:

    That was a sorry slide

  149. BigTimeBartolo says:

    Yeah swish…i’m thinking you shouldn’t do that anymore.

  150. Coolerking101 says:

    When can the Yanks call up Montero without him gaining a year’s worth of experience for arbitration purpose? Another month or so?

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      First week of June.

    • MikeD says:

      I don’t know if they should be too concerned about the June call-up date. I expect this to be addressed in the next CBA after this season.

      • Coolerking101 says:

        If Posada isn’t hitting by June 1….I think it will be Montero time.

        If they change the CBA, I highly doubt a change in that area would be applied retroactively.

        • MikeD says:

          I just don’t think the Yankees are concerned about the June call-up date. They would call him up right now. They just won’t because they’re not going to give up on Posada as their DH yet.

          • It’s probably a little of all those factors.

            A.) It’s too early to give up on Posada
            B.) The team is producing well overall and not in a desperate situation where upgrades are needed across the board
            C.) Montero’s not fully hitting for power and in a groove, and you want to promote him when he’s hot
            D.) The more you wait to promote him, the more his clocks get pushed back
            E.) Promoting Montero requires a 40-man move, and delaying that as long as possible gives more time to evaluate who is needed and who can be dumped

            • Klemy says:

              I’m glad he hasn’t been called up yet (because I’m going to the SWB game tomorrow!).

              But yeah, all that.

            • MikeD says:

              Agreed. Some teams would hold firm to the June call up, where I think it’s a minor consideration on the Yankees list. It’s something they’d do, but there are other reasons to keep him at AAA right now.

  151. MikeD says:

    I some how have Jeff Francoeur on my fantasy baseball team. Since week one, he’s at the top of my list of players to be cut, yet he doesn’t allow me.

  152. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Future Yankee Killer up.

  153. Slappy White says:

    How long do they stick with Jorge ?….Its getting embarrassing

  154. IRF says:

    I can’t wait until Michael Kay apologizes to the Kiahalue family

  155. BigTimeBartolo says:

    D-rob, please

  156. Klemy says:

    Why in the world?

  157. Jonathan says:

    bad tag Arod. double play city right here

  158. jetrer says:

    fucking walks

  159. first time lawng time says:

    I feel like of all the players on the team, Arod would be the best (or least bad) singer.

  160. Mike Myers says:

    oh noes

  161. Jonathan says:

    how the fuck do you walk Matt Treanor right there

  162. Ari G says:

    why isnt joba in this game

  163. IRF says:

    D-rob loves the pressure

  164. Klemy says:

    Kay is talking, just to fill air time at this point.

  165. Klemy says:

    Nice curveball.

  166. Mike Myers says:

    damn son. he was a good foot off that breaker

  167. Canada takes the lead!

  168. bakekrukow412 says:

    97 mph!!!

  169. thaaaaaaayankeeeswin says:

    97?

  170. jon says:

    97 on the stadium gun

    95 on gameday

  171. jetrer says:

    DRob seems to thrive on the pressure. I, on the other hand, now have an ulcer.

  172. thaaaaaaayankeeeswin says:

    yesssss

  173. Erica says:

    YEAHHHHHH D-ROB!!!

  174. IRF says:

    Closer mentality FTW!!!

  175. jetrer says:

    That was a horrible call though.

  176. mbonzo says:

    Robertson is second only to Mo.

    Thats not the homeplate umps call though. Bad call.

  177. Mike Axisa says:

    I’m guessing Poopy Pants won’t be coming around to tell us how overrated David Robertson is tonight.

  178. Mike Myers says:

    he checked that….thanks ump!

  179. V says:

    He did not go around. I’ll take the call, but I hate these fucking umpires.

  180. BigTimeBartolo says:

    omg d-rob…

    shaky but got the job done once again

  181. baravelli says:

    I call the Yankees break it open this inning.

  182. Gardy and Martin to the 7 and 6 spot?

  183. Klemy says:

    Yeah. At some point the league really needs to say something to the people behind the plate about those calls.

  184. MikeD says:

    Blake Wood?

    Baseball player? Author? Soap opera star?

  185. Xstar7 says:

    David Robertson’s new theme song:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....ata_player

  186. Ari G says:

    guess we know why joba is pitching the eight, uchh whats wrong with sori now?

  187. neaks says:

    Where’s the Eighth Inning Guy(TM)?? I do like Robertson as fireman instead of Joba though – never though Joba was great with inherited runners.

  188. first time lawng time says:

    Possible careers if they didn’t do baseball:
    Tex: construction worker
    Arod: singer
    Jorge: doctor
    Jeter: car salesman (nothing to do with Ford commercials BTW)
    Gardner: farmer
    Cervelli: Fashion designer or something like that
    Cano: something that doesn’t involve speaking…underwear model?
    Joba: hotdog eating contest contestant

    thoughts? Agree/disagree?

  189. IRF says:

    Joba looks filthy tonight

  190. jon says:

    woah joba looks great

  191. I’m not gonna even say it.

  192. neaks says:

    I see someone flipped on Joba’s Beast Mode tonight. Those low heaters must be mesmerizing, KC can’t stop staring!

  193. NHyankeesfan says:

    If Joba continues what he did tonight and Soriano turns it around, this will be an almost unbeatable bullpen

  194. I thought our order’s heart was 9-1-2

  195. MikeD says:

    Blake Wood, baseball player/author/soap opera actor/adult film star, now pitching.

  196. Flash sounded so enthusiastic about that Centerstage.

  197. baravelli says:

    “I’m pretty sure it’s okay to just substitute the word ‘working’ for any other verb.”
    - John Flaherty

  198. You can’t hit 180 18, let alone 9.

  199. IRF says:

    16-3 K/BB ratio for Joba. Now if only he can start stranding runners.

  200. Klemy says:

    Cowboy boots? Really Michael? Appropriate for a guy who might actually need a literal ten gallon hat.

  201. Xstar7 says:

    The Marlins just beat the Phillies. This makes me happy.

  202. Swish needs a few days off.

  203. mbonzo says:

    Raffy is probably aching in some way. He was throwing 89 his last outing.

  204. YanksFan in MA says:

    Frenchy had no intention of hitting the ball that way.

  205. Greg says:

    Francoeur is finding every hole

  206. Danny Tartabull says:

    1 down!

  207. Rob says:

    “Hey Rookie”
    “I’m going to give you a 3-0 head start”

  208. Joe says:

    As a tribute to the not present Soriano, Mo allows his contractually obligated base-runner.

  209. Danny Tartabull says:

    1 – 4 – 3 DP GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

  210. mbonzo says:

    Wow, nice play by Mo.

  211. V says:

    That is the worst fucking catch phrase in sports. Congratulations, Kay, you’re an imbecile.

  212. Danny Tartabull says:

    if only that would have happened in Arizona…..

  213. Ok, so I thought that “put it on the left side” was to mock HH in Chicago. Anyway, the YANKES WIN!!!!!

  214. Simon says:

    That was Moriffic, I would love to see Mo of that!

  215. Erica says:

    THANK MO. That was gorgeous.

  216. Stratman9652 says:

    I’d still be pretty stoked if I were Hosmer. Not everyone gets struck out by Mo thier first week in the bigs.

  217. Xstar7 says:

    Greatest. Closer. Ever.

  218. So Boston is having their best prospect sit on the bench as a defensive sub? Really?

    • Big Apple says:

      not even sure why they’d bring him up…he’s not hitting at AAA. I guess Scutaro is going on the DL but he ain’t playing anyway.

      doesn’t make sense.

  219. Chris says:

    If only you could have done that 10 years ago, Mo….

  220. Big Apple says:

    Rauch is pitching to Pedroia…galoot to the munchkin…and the galoot wins!

  221. Big Apple says:

    superstar Daniel Bard just gave up a dinger…

  222. Stratman9652 says:

    Wonder if Joba realizes his shirt is inside out…

  223. forensic says:

    Who is this announcing on NESN with Orsillo tonight? He’s giving Flaherty a run for his money as the most boring announcer ever.

  224. James G. says:

    This game had the best umpire punch-outs I’ve ever seen.

  225. mbonzo says:

    Angel’s announcers are talking about how Granderson’s homeruns are cheap because of the jet stream in new Yankee Stadium.

    He has 7 HRs away and 4 HRs at home. Thats one big ass jet stream.

    • Big Apple says:

      my guess is they haven’t seen any of grandy’s bombs…talk about a laser show

    • forensic says:

      How did they even get on that topic? Neither team in that game has anything to do with Granderson or the Yankees. Just another part of why I think they announcing team is one of the two or three worst in baseball.

      And what’s the deal with that franchise doing dumbass things like this mask record??? So pitiful.

      • mbonzo says:

        Started with a homerun by Izturis and they talked about the homerun leader Granderson. Then they said something about how you should never talk bad about a Yankee without saying anything, but then the other guy just said Granderson could thank the Yankee Stadium jet stream. Its just terrible analysis when you actually look at the numbers and stop trying to create a narrative.

  226. Big Apple says:

    suck on that sox fans!

    • jon says:

      its so cute im watching NESN

      they just showed 2 clips from the yankee game

      1) swish missing the diving catch
      2) melky talking to cano as he rounds the bases
