Yogi Berra turns 86 years young today, and I’m pretty sure he’s seen more baseball and knows more about the game than all of us combined. I hope the Yankees’ gift to him a big blowout win over the Royals tonight. Happy birthday, Yogi. Here’s the starting nine…

Derek Jeter, DH
Curtis Granderson, CF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Robinson Cano, 2B – I guess the ol’ melon is okay after yesterday’s plunking
Nick Swisher, RF
Brett Gardner, LF
Eduardo Nunez, SS – over/under on the number of bad throws is set at 2.5
Frankie Cervelli, C – guessing that Joe Girardi wants to use Russell Martin in all three games vs. Boston

Ivan Nova, SP

You can watch this game on YES locally or MLB Network nationally. Enjoy.

Note: The Yankees will play a day-night doubleheader in Baltimore on August 27th to make up for the April 22nd rain out. That a Saturday five days into a 16 games in 16 days stretch, so a) they’ll need to call up a spot starter, and b) it might wreck the bullpen. But then again, it’s more than three months away, so who knows.

    Three bad throws in a game is a lot, even for him. I’ll take the under, but not by much.

    • Thomas

      Matter what bad throw is considered. A throwing error or just a throw requiring a good pick by Teixeira. If it is error alone, I’d take the under. If it is the latter though, I definitely considered the over.

  • General Tsao

    Offense needs to step up and take the series. Robertson and possibly Mo won’t be available. We need those guys for the next series so please just blow them out.

  • Jericho Spade

    Mike, since when do you run this site by yourself?

    • http://deleted Total Dominication

      I haven’t commented, but it does seem you have more than half of the weekday articles.

      • http://deleted Total Dominication

        Of all the articles on the current page, you aren’t the write for 1 of them.

    • Thomas

      I suspect that Ben might be taking and studying for finals right now, since UConn’s final were last week (thus NYU’s could be this week).

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

        Bingo. Ben has finals next week and the BAR shortly thereafter. Joe’s just a slacker.

  • http://twitter.com/urbainshockcor Urban

    I was going to ask the over/under on Nunez regarding errors, as opposed to bad throws. Sad that’s what Nunez has become in the early going. According to A-Rod, Nunez needs to take a a step in so he’s not constantly rushing his throws.

  • Sabermetrically Challenged

    What happened to that slider/cutter Nova was supposed to be using?

  • Cy Pettitte

    they better pound this shit out of this guy, I can’t sit through a repeat of last night

    • http://twitter.com/urbainshockcor Urban

      The Yankees have too many guys scuffling along right now, including A-Rod, Martin, Posada, even Cano. I sense an explosion coming, hopefully in time for this weekend’s series.

  • http://danielslifka.wordpress.com Jerome S.

    “Derek Jeter, DH”

    Less of this.

  • http://twitter.com/urbainshockcor Urban

    Didn’t this guy pitch a great game against the Yankees last year, but I think he was on another team. Or am I confushing my Irish pitchers?

    Based on Jeter and Granderson, they must think he throws a lot of first-pitch junk.

    • http://. Greg

      He did, but that was the first time they saw him so it was predictable.

    • Cy Pettitte

      he shut them down with the Angels I believe, then he was traded and the Yankees beat him the next week with the Royals

      • http://twitter.com/urbainshockcor Urban

        Oh, yeah. I remember that trade now. First inning tonight looked more like the first game. Hopefully they get through that.

  • http://danielslifka.wordpress.com Jerome S.

    Remember when O’Sullivan totally shut us down last year andthat was THE MOST FRUSTRATING GAME IN HISTORY? We have one of those once every 2 weeks.

  • jon

    nice catch but youre still a tool for being a grown ass man and brining a glove to the game

    • http://danielslifka.wordpress.com Jerome S.

      grown ass man: Noun, a condition of prolonged hilarity of the Seinfeldian tradition. See also: Kramer, Kosmo

  • BigTimeBartolo

    9 pitches in the first inning for O’Sullivan. That’s unacceptable.

  • http://. Greg

    We cant go into the Red Sox series losing 2 of 3 to the Royals.

    • http://danielslifka.wordpress.com Jerome S.

      Actually, we can. And if we do…

    • http://twitter.com/urbainshockcor Urban

      We can’t?

      We actually can’t go into the Red Sox series not hitting. They actually have better pitchers than KC. Yet baseball is a funny game.

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

      The Yankees could lose this game and all three against the Red Sox, and they’ll still have a better record than them on Monday.

        • Thomas Cassidy

          I didn’t notice the trip. Whoops.

          • mike c

            it was technically a bad throw by cano, but any decent SS with half a wit would have made the play

    • Thomas Cassidy

      The Yankees are playing like the Indians should be playing this season.

    • http://. Greg

      Usually it wouldn’t be. But this is the same offense as yesterday. And make that 2-0

    • http://deleted Total Dominication

      We’re alla little testy after last night.

      • First Time Poster

        I understand the frustration, and it is okay to gripe; however, to turn the game off after 1 1/3 inning is beyond foolish.

        By which I mean we don’t have to ask.

  • forensic

    Since this team is basically unwatchable right now, looks like Jorge had a little hissy fit during the pregame with reporters. Anyone else moderately hopeful for a mid-season retirement?

    • Thomas Cassidy

      What happened with Posada?

      • 101010

        He didn’t want to spoil Yogi’s birthday. Too bad the rest of his team is doing a fine job of just that.

      • forensic

        NEW YORK ? After what appeared to be his best night at the plate in a while (2-for-3 with an RBI and two walks) in last night’s extra-innings loss to Kansas City, it looked as though Jorge Posada might have been joining teammates Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter in a resurgence at the plate.
        But when asked how his swing felt before batting practice this afternoon, Posada simply offered: “The team is doing good, that’s all I want to talk about.”
        Posada, who is not in tonight’s lineup, answered plenty of questions about a full-time transition to the designated hitter role in Spring Training. Joe Girardi said he’d have to work on developing a routine to feel comfortable. But even after a two-hit night, he didn’t seem optimistic that would happen, and broke off a session with reporters after a few questions.
        First, on the routine, Posada doesn’t see it happening.
        “I don’t have a routine. No. I don’t think it’s going to be there,” Posada, who is in the final year of his contract, said. “When you play for so long and you’re behind the plate for so long and you have a routine there. When you pinch hit four times it’s not easy.”
        He would not say whether there was anything about the designated hitter role that he actually preferred to catching.
        “I’m not catching so I can’t even talk about catching, it’s about DHing and it’s really, it’s coming to the point where I have to understand my job and go out there and keep swinging the bat,” he said.
        And when asked if the lack of routine could have contributed to the slow start — a .162 batting average and a .273 OBP — Posada left his locker and the clubhouse toward an area restricted to reporters.

        That’s via Conor Orr. Brian Heyman had a similar take.

  • Matt

    Cry me a river. This team is in a slump? They’ve been playing terrible baseball for two and a half weeks now. I don’t care what KC’s record is, because outside of their bullpen, they are a mediocre team despite what their numbers look like so far.

    That inning was the most disgraceful performance by far of this season. Cano’s throw was not that bad, Nunez is just a bad shortstop. Nova had an easy 1-6-3 DP and botched it to allow another run. Cervelli’s defense is terrible, he led the league in catching errors last year despite being a backup and showed more of why that was the case tonight.

    I don’t want to hear any more excuses. Boo hoo, guys are slumping. They’ve been slumping for weeks now, why can’t they make the adjustment? Why can’t they make routine plays in the field? These guys are better than this, but you are only as good as what you do on the field.

  • BigTimeBartolo

    Also Cervelli needs to go. For someone who has the reputation of being a good defensive catcher, he really makes a shit load of errors. Fuck Cervelli

    Perhaps its time for everyone to work on their zen baseball techniques.

    They have been playing poorly for a while, yes. And tonight has been ugly (so far), no doubt.

        Yes, it’s ugly. Yes, they’re playing shitty baseball. But it’s nothing they can’t recover from — especially in May. Pop that bottle of chill pills.

        • BigTimeBartolo

          Of course they can recover, it’s just frustrating as hell to watch your team play such shitty baseball. Especially on defense with the freaking errors. You can be fine with it but it pisses me off and I’m venting my frustration. So no, I wont be taking any “chill pills”, asshole

        I really laughed at the horse face reference and with the inner rage this game is giving me that’s an accomplishment.

    • Kostas

      Good point. However, the number of games is less than 60 because they are trending towards continuing their current performance. This is not a great team but an above average team. They require too many pieces to be functioning at once in order to be the dominant team they should be. There are many holes in the bull pen, lack of control in the starting rotation, and the offense, well, it is becoming Oakland A’s like. That said, they may still win 85+ games and make the playoffs.

      Well yeah, and at this rate Cleveland is going to win the WS.

      • Kostas

        Somewhere you put a smile on Charlie Sheen’s face…. DUH! WINNING!

  • Guest

    Also, after having 5 months off and playing what felt like game a week in early april, they are now playing their 19th game in 20 days. Perhaps they haven’t yet readjusted to the grind and fatigue is playing a role in the sloppiness.

    IMHO, the most likely result is: The Yanks will have another great regular season, make the playoffs, and this will be one of those game threads we look back on at the end of the season to laugh at our in-game hyperbole.

    • Thomas Cassidy

      Not this year. They suck this year.

      • Guest

        Sweet merciful crap, I really hope you are kidding and my sarcasm detector is just off.

        You know what, I’m just going to presume that’s the case. The alternative would make my head explode.

    • first time lawng time

      Fatigue is bullshit. Unless you’re a pitcher baseball is not by any means physically demanding.

    • jetrer

      “fatigue is playing a role in the sloppiness”
      Nunez and Cervelli are fatigued from playing once a week?

    • forensic

      Well, it’s reassuring that you think it’s fatigue. At least they don’t play another 13 games in a row or anything… It’s not like this is their career that they should be prepared for or anything.

      • Guest

        It was just a theory. It could clearly be wrong.

        Whatever the reason, they’ve still only played 34 games this year, have a ton of talent, and a pretty strong track record of finishing the season with enough wins to make the playoffs.

  • It’sATarp

    Shit we’re losing a game…end of the world!

    on the side note: i still hate watching Nova pitch…

  • Klingy

    how the hell were we ever in first place during this season so far???

    • It’sATarp

      because we don;t play this shitty every game?

      How the hell are you a yankees fan again? Hop of the wagon now if you want

      • Klingy

        i’m a yankees fan from birth, and always will be, even tho this team is really suckin it lately

        • It’sATarp

          It happens…Nova ain’t pitching every game and this offense and defense won’t be this shitty every game either

    • Guest

      Because everyone loses in baseball and has crappy stretches? If they lose 48 more times this year…48 more times where they “suck” or at least “suck more than their opponent at scoring runs than night,” you know what they’ll be:

      A 100 win team and likely owners of the best record in the AL.

      • It’sATarp

        Nah we should panic because this game is obviously a perfect representation of the yankee’s true talent.

    • http://deleted Total Dominication

      Because we scored a lot more runs than the other teams.

  • Yo! I’m Chris

    So I guess they’re losing?

  • It’sATarp

    Buchholz has a FIP of 5 and a xFIP of 4.81…sounds like a good for the offense to wake up tomorrow.

    • BigTimeBartolo

      you would think so, but I’m thinking 8 IP 3 hits, 1 run from Buchholz

      • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

        And 9IP 0 hits, 0 runs from Colon

        • BigTimeBartolo

          a perfect game from bartolo would be glorious

    • first time lawng time

      I thought they would wake up last night against the pitcher who everyone is batting like .400 against.

      Guess not.

  • forensic

    What the hell is Nova doing using his glove there? They must’ve forgotten to tell him he’s supposed to bend down for the ball only to have it go off his fingertips.

  • Matt

    It’s just one game… and then it’s just two games… and then it’s just three games.

    But hey, look on the bright side. These games only count as ties until it’s July (or so you’d think from reading the comments on this blog).

    Nobody is saying they are done or they will not turn it around because they are playing poorly now. Don’t put words in people’s mouths.

    The fact of the matter is that this isn’t just a usual slump, this is a 3 week stretch of awful play by the entire team. It’s hard to think of a time when they’ve been this bad for this long in the last few years outside of last September. If you cannot acknowledge that their performance has been embarrassing, then you simply are delusional.

    This team deserves criticism right now given the way they have been playing lately. When you keep posting that it “doesn’t matter” or that the poster is “overreacting,” all it does is make you look like like a jerk.

    • Kostas

      Well said, especially that it is POOR PLAY, not just a slump here or there.

    • It’sATarp

      I usually try to be rational, but this isn’t helping my irrational hate of nova. I really hate Nova…

    • Mojo

      Thank you! Finally. They’ve been playing like shit and I cannot stand(!!!) when people try to rub it off as just one game or a bad series. I honestly don’t have much faith in anyone outside of Cano, Granderson, and, yes, Montero. I’m not convinced that Tex is a .300 hitter anymore or that Alex will rebound. Jeter… well, yeah… Posada’s toast. Swisher just looks ugly and it truly pains me to say that because I love the guy. I’ll still give Martin the benefit of the doubt, but Gardner, I don’t know. The guy just can’t quite seem to utilize the tools he was given. In no way, no what whatsoever, has this team convinced that it’s championship caliber. I don’t get that feeling like I did in 2009. What pains me the most, however, is the delusion of some commenters. The Yankees look broken, and, for the first time in a long time, I’m not sure if they’re capable of fixing themselves. Speaking of fixing myself . . . anyone know of any good new porn sites?

  • Kostas

    This made me laugh. But it shouldn’t stop with just those two.

    Honest to goodness, if Eduardo Nunez and Francisco Cervelli want to come to Yankee Stadium they ought to have to buy tickets

  • Mark

    I knew this game was coming, after last nights implosion. Good thing the NBA is on…

  • BigTimeBartolo

    I think im past being pissed off at this game. I know it wont happen but the idea of O’Sullivan throwing a perfect game would be absolutely hilarious. Just so bad that you have to laugh at it

  • http://danielslifka.wordpress.com Jerome S.

  • JohnnyC

    So the obstacle to us getting Cliff Lee was Eduardo Nunez? You got to be kidding, Cash.

  • Klingy

    GAME OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STUPID MOTHER FUCKING TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      Finally, somebody said it!

  • the tenth inning stretch

    Holy crap, even Melky?

    • murakami

      what the fuck does that mean? Melky sucks? It’s your ability to assess talent that sucks. Melky is not only ONLY 26, he was developing a power stroke for our park left-handed when stupid decided to trade him. Now, he’s racking up doubles in a park that encourages them, instead of pulling shots into the RF seats for us.

      Good for Melky, who got bounced for a guy who can’t hit the ball out of the infield. He’s also got four walks in this series. Javy fucking Vazquez for Melky AND Vicai-fucking-ino. Not Cashman’s finest hour.

    • murakami

      sorry, that was kind of harsh. I admit I’m bitter they traded Cabrera. Worse, I get sick of the swipes at the guy. My apologies for being so rude.

  • epy0n

    Where is the bullpen management now? I mean we need to get Nova out of this game 7 runs is already to deep.

    • jetrer

      Yankee mgmt isn’t intelligent enough to carry a long man.

      Don’t bother. Let him take the beating to save the bullpen.

  • Kostas

    At this point you just leave Nova in there to take a beating. There is no fucking way in hell that the Yankees are winning this one…

  • BigTimeBartolo

    Nova needs to go, he looks terrible. He’s only really had like 2-3 good starts. Really dissapointing so far. And as I say that Nova gives up a double.

  • http://twitter.com/Paddock9652 Stratman9652

    I don’t normally give up on games, and I’m usually one of the guys saying “it’s still early” but this just fucking sucks.

    Can we get rid of Nova now? this is just him regressing to his bloated xFIP near 5…

    Look at the bright side. We get to see Sanit pitch.

    Oh wait…

    Sure hope they have a lot of Geno and Yogi video cued up and things to talk about the rest of the night.

    • 101010

      Would be more interesting to see them give Geno a glove and send him to short. I wonder if he can make a throw to first…

      • the tenth inning stretch

        While they’re at it, might as well see if Yogi can take over for Cervelli behind the plate.

  • bonestock94

    so glad I’m not watching this game.

  • first time lawng time

    If I were Girardi, I’d pull everyone from tge field and put in bench players….give them a message.

    • Bob Stone

      I like that idea. Something needs to be done.

    • jetrer

      the bench players started today. What good would putting struggling starters in do?

        MAybe they need another day off? IDK I just feel like they are wasting their time out there.

  • Pastadivingarod

      They don’t even use the one lefty they have now, what’s the point of adding another?

    So, who’s on tomorrows Scranton shuttle since Sanit should be toast after tonight? Starter like Noesi? Reliever like Whelan? Wonder if they’re already on the horn to Scranton telling them to keep someone out of the game at all costs?

    Hi, I’m the Yankees – I lose two of three at home to the Royals. Go team!

    [Is it just me, or do the losses like yesterday really get me down – seems like they’ve had more than their fair share since the season started…)

    • first time lawng time

      Well the 3-4 road trip didn’t help. Especially losing to Detroit and splitting with Chi before.

  • the tenth inning stretch

    Yanks’ master plan was to let the Royals bat for a long time to O’Sullivan would get stiff on the bench. Joke’s on him!

  • forensic

    Well, at least with 20 pitches per inning Sanit can get them through the 6th and then it’s time for The Formula to finish it off!

    • Preston

      Well if we’re still getting raped I pitch Sanit until his arm falls off and then option him back down. At least then we can salvage one positive thing out of this game, a fresh bullpen for Boston.

  • Kostas

    Yanks are going to get no hit… you can just feel it.

  • the tenth inning stretch

      Trade Teixeira, Cano and Swisher for Felix.
      Fire Girardi, Levine and Cashman.
      Burn Cervelli at a stake and send a lynch mob after Gardner.

      • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

        And donate our farm system to the Phillies.

      • Preston

        The lynch mob wouldn’t catch Gardner.

        • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

          They would if they threw over a couple times first.

  • BigTimeBartolo

    oh BABIP, you bitch

  • first time lawng time

    This is actually all a dream, guys. In a few minutes we will all wake up to watch a team who knows how to field balls, whose players can actually get runners in when there are runners on base, an who has a bullpen that is reliable And a starter that hasn’t put your team out of the game in the first 2 innings.

    It’s all just a dream guys. It just happens to be extremely vivid and you can’t remember going to sleep.

    No worries.

    • Will

      I’ve been reading this hilarious game thread and decided I would make one response, to the most asinine comment in the whole thread…so YOU WIN!

      This is the first game ALL SEASON not started by Phil Hughes in which the Yankees have been put in a huge hole early by a starting pitcher!

      And to those who think Nova should be sent down/DFA’d/etc…really? Pitchers have bad starts, especially young ones. Following your logic, we should have dumped CC after his two shitty starts on the last road trip.

  • murakami

    We have a more important series looming. I’d rather get clobbered and spare the bullpen than lose 3-1. Cano probably should have had another day. That would have been smart. Getting hit in the head isn’t a barrel of monkeys, regardless of negative tests.

  • Kostas

    So the mere fact that the Yankees evaluated Nunez to be better than Pena raises some questions. Neither is worthy of being at this level and are nothing more than career AAA guys.

  • Preston

    On the bright side at least we aren’t struggling with runners in scoring position…

  • first time lawng time

    Remember when we used to hit a lot of HRs? Especially arod?

    • Pinstripes in Cali

      Hitting too many HRs = bad baseball. that’s what all the newspapers told me. I believe them. Look. We stopped hitting HRs, and starting winning games.

        I guess. There is always someone to hate on the Yankees, never thought Yankee fans were so shallow and ignorant they would attack Jeter. But as John Sterling says, “You can’t predict baseball”.

        • first time lawng time

          Well Jeter has looked pretty bad since last year.
          I think it’s mostly frustrating with him because he is usually so good, but now he doesn’t have much value offensively.

          I don’t think saying bad thongs about your team makes you less of a fan. I think people are like this because they are the Yankees and they should be better than this and there is a lot of bad going on.

        If you go on the DL in the majors, do you college major league pay? That’s the least they could do for the guy.

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

          Yep.

          • V

            collect* not college, lol. But yeah, you called the guy up for one day, to totally take one for the team, the least you can do is give him some cash for probably shredding his arm.

        He’s gonna need some stem cells just to get out of bed tomorrow morning.

  • V

    I think this d00d needs to be cheered for what he just did for the Yankees. He single-handedly saved the bullpen before the Boston series.

  • V

    Hahahahaha, 12th inning, the Mariners score the first run of the game. Closer comes in, walk, HBP, HBP, no outs…

    • V

      Walkoff two run single!

    • MikeD

      Yikes. Is that League? I have him on my team. He’s had issues of late.

      • V

        Sorry, d00d ;-)

  • MikeD

    Nice job saving the pen, whomever you are.

  • Erica

    Oh boy.

  • Cy Pettitte

    lol great job Carlyle, you piece of shit

  • jetrer

    Can we get rid of Buddy yet?

  • BigTimeBartolo

    Buddy Carlyle is absolute garbage. DFA DFA DFA

    • Kostas

      According to the Yankees he is far better than anything they have in AAA.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    He ain’t my buddy, friend.

  • MikeD

    Hmmm, just arrived, but looks like it’s time to go see what’s going on over on the National Geographic Channel.

    • MikeD

      Ahh, a report on salvaging pieces from wrecked Porsches. There’s a joke in here.

  • first time lawng time

    This team really has not been that good this year. I’m happy it’s only May though.

  • Kostas

    Clearly adding Buddy Carlyle was based on serious discussion and that famous Yankee evaluation. Otherwise you’d have to think it was a poor choice to fill a roster spot.

  • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

    Damn I’m gonna need a shit-ton of beer for this weekend series.

  • Clemson Rob

    Buddy the Relief pitcher, what’s your favorite way to give up runs?

  • Erica

    An A-Rod home run that… well, I mean, good for A-Rod?

    • V

      Well, it’s a good sign that he’s busting out of his slump. If he can get right tonight, that’ll be very helpful going into the Red Sox series.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    LOL-Rod.

  • the tenth inning stretch

    Yay A-Rod. Whoopee.

  • Cy Pettitte

    fucking stat padding ARod

  • Rob

    do i get bonus points for calling that?

  • BigTimeBartolo

    Finally, hopefully this is a sign of things to come in the BoSox series

  • first time lawng time

    That was the most useless and pathetic HR I have ever seen.

    • V

      Keep whining.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Stat padder.

  • CMP

    Why the hell didn’t they keep Albaladejo?

    He was a heck of a lot better than this Carlyle and Ayala crap that they’ve been running out there.

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      And they should have kept Brian Bruney.

      • CMP

        Now you’re going a bit too far.

        • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

          We need Chad Ho Moesley!

          • CMP

            I’d even take the Quan/Go from Quan/Go/Mo.

            • Kevin G.

              Ro/Jo/Quan/Go/So/Mo

              Just in case the starter goes 3 innings, or 1 inning if Torre’s still the manager.

          • Cy Pettitte

            I will always have a special place in my heart for Chan Ho Park after his infamous diarrhea interview

    • Cy Pettitte

      he looked to ridiculous with that tiny little glove

      • Cy Pettitte

        too*

    • jetrer

      Thats why he couldn’t get a job in MLB.

      • CMP

        If Carlyle could get a job with a career 5.56 ERA and -0.5 WAR since 2009, I think big Jonathan could too.

        • jetrer

          My point is that they all suck. Same suckiness, different uniform number. It really doesn’t make a difference when you’re choosing between 2 competing piles of crap.

          • CMP

            Can’t argue with the truth.

          • CMP

            though I do think Albaladejo will resurface in the NL someday as a pretty decent middle reliever

  • BigTimeBartolo

    The fact that our whole bullpen is depleted like this in the first place means Girardi has managed it badly. Especially with his stupid inning roles and raping D-rob’s arm

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    At least Mo, Joba, DRob, and all the good pitchers in the BP will have a night off before the Boston series

    • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

      Mo, Joba and Drob ARE all the good pitchers in the BP.

      • 101010

        We always have Swisher for emergencies.

  • Cy Pettitte

    remember when people wanted to get rid of Brett? lol, good times.

  • first time lawng time
    • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

      I don’t know that I even feel particularly bad about this loss, sometimes your butt gets handed to you. But the compounded feeling of the last couple of weeks has me a bit shaken and pessimistic, and just in a general bad place when I’m watching the Yanks right now. Zen baseball it is not.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Kay starting the Cervelli gets big hits narrative.

    • jetrer

      when did he stop that narrative. Seems like thats been going on since his first call up.

      • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

        He’s always suggested it, but this is the first time I’m hearing those exact words.

  • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

    Let’s get to this Post-Game, I need Girardi to tell me about all the positive signs from this game so that my rage can boil over before I go to bed…

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      Predictions:

      “I thought Buddy threw well…”

      “They were seeing the ball well, they just couldn’t execute”

      “Cervi’s been great for us all year…”

    Fitting way to end the game Captain 4-3ter
