Game 42: Posada at 1B


Eye on the ball, Jorge. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)

With Eric Chavez on the shelf and Mark Teixeira in need of some rest, Jorge Posada is starting at first base for the first time since 2008. He has 15 career starts at the position in his career, though eight of them came way back in 2000. Jorge worked out a bunch at first this spring, but it’s still going to be a big defensive step down for the Yankees. Such is life. Here’s the starting nine…

Derek Jeter, SS
Curtis Granderson, CF
Mark Teixeira, DH
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Robinson Cano, 2B
Russell Martin, C – surprised he’s back in there, he didn’t really get yesterday off
Jorge Posada, 1B
Nick Swisher, RF
Brett Gardner, LF

CC Sabathia, SP – I sure hope he’s ready to eat some serious innings

You can watch tonight’s game on YES locally or MLB Network nationally when it begins shortly after 7pm ET. Enjoy.

Update: We are officially in a delay. No word on a start time yet, but use this as an open thread in the meantime.

Update Part Deux: The game is expected to begin at 7:50pm ET.

  1. king of fruitless hypotheticals says:

    I’m going to cut Agon as my 1B as soon as Jorge qualifies…can’t wait!

  2. first time lawng time says:

    Is Bergeson a Yankee killer, or can we expect an ass beating?

  3. Xstar7 says:

    Jorge Posada at 1B, and using an old Tino Martinez glove? Looks like the weirdness from last nights game is carrying over into today.

    • A-Rod's Wingman says:

      Maybe they’ll do something crazy this time and get hits with runners in scoring position.

  4. MikeD says:

    So Dickerson has a splitting headache and didn’t sleep last night, but is supposedly fine? Those were the exact same symptons Posada described when he was hit in the head last September, which the Yankees eventually revealed was a concussion, and later tests confirmed had some neurological impact, even if temporary.

    • MikeD says:

      From the Bergen Record on Posada’s concussion last September:

      Although a CAT scan revealed no bleeding in the brain, the Yankees nevertheless had Posada undergo a comprehensive memory test. The computerized program, called ImPACT, was designed at the University of Pittsburgh concussion center. It runs for 15-18 minutes, measuring attention, memory, processing speed and reaction time.

      Some NHL and NFL football teams use ImPACT, but it’s universally employed in the big leagues, including umpires. Players are tested in spring training for baseline readings, then tested again after any incident that might involve a head injury – a collision at home plate, for instance, or crashing into an outfield wall, or in Posada’s case, a direct hit from a foul tip.

      Posada said the test results were “not good” after the September incident. In fact, his results were subpar in two of the three tests he took in 2010. Does this mean Posada is at risk for brain damage? No one knows for sure, but the data is troubling.

      …Researchers say the key to protecting oneself is not getting that first concussion. Once that threshold has been crossed, the brain is more susceptible to the biochemical changes that account for dizziness and nausea in the short term, and possibly dementia down the road.

  5. The BIG 3 says:

    Now that is a reasonable response.

    Yankees: “Jorge, how can we hit you up in the order if you’re hitting like shit?”

    Jorge: “I need time to acclimate myself to the DH role, as I’m not used to sitting on the bench all game. I was fine last year while catching, and that was only 8 months ago. What do you think, that I lost it that fast or that I’m having a difficult time sitting as DH?”

    Yankees: “Well, you’ve done so well for this town and team, what if we were to put you at 1B every now and again. Would that help?”

    Jorge: “Thanks. It’s better than sitting”

  6. Lily says:

    outta curiosity, are the yankees the only team to not throw a shutout this season?

  7. BigBlueAL says:

    This is the first time since Saturday all the regulars are playing vs a RHP and Posada is batting 7th followed by Swish and Gardner.

    What was the point of hitting Posada 9th that day??

  8. Chairman Mao says:

    Hopefully CC can get the first 2 outs in the 1st inning so he can just drill Markakis in the back as retaliation for Dickerson. It has to happen at some point so it’d be nice to get it over with in the 1st. Umpire will warn both benches and we’ll resume as normal.

    • Lily says:

      i’d rather we wait till we have a good enough lead, then drill someone

    • Pat D says:

      CC isn’t the type of guy who hits people in retaliation.

      • Xstar7 says:

        He intentionally plunked Vincente Padilla in retaliation against the Dodgers last year.

        • 101010 says:

          The situation was a lot different though. With Padilla you had a guy with a long history of beaning guys intentionally. Then he goes and hits Tex. In that case CC threw at the guy who threw at his player. In the case of Markakis, he wasn’t the one who hit Martin and he wasn’t the one who hit Dickerson. I’m ok with pitchers throwing at other pitchers like what happened with Padilla, but there is no sense throwing at an innocent player and potentially injuring them.

          Although I do remember (hopefully accurately) CC hitting Pedoria after that game where Beckett was wild and hit Jeter and Cano. Would have been quite the comedy to see Pedroia charge CC.

          • CS Yankee says:

            If “Laser” charged CC his head would bounce off of CC’s gut causing a severe neck injury from the whiplash.

            One would think half-a-man would know this and just opt to stay gritty and take his base.

      • Yanks27rings says:

        So untrue… Lemme recap:

        June (maybe July?) series at LA Dodgers.

        Padilla plunks Cano in the BACK.

        Padilla comes up to bat. CC’s pitching. Padilla gets a pitch in the knee. The end!

      • JobaWockeeZ says:

        Uhm what? Someone got plunked and hi retaliated against Kurt Suzuki once and I’m sure that was against the wishes of Girardi.

        CC is exactly the type of pitcher who retaliates.

      • Pat D says:

        My bad, totally forgot about that.

        But I don’t think he’ll hit someone tonight because of last night or the prior series.

      • zzzzz says:

        CC also plunked pedoria on purpose. i was foaming at the mouth expecting him to plunk youkilis that game but he tagged pedoria instead. big huge CC tossing a fastball at little pedoria. classic.

    • pat says:

      Yes, and then he won’t be able to pitch inside all game for fear of getting ejected if one accidentally gets away. Great idea.

    • Greg Golson's Laser Rocket Arm says:

      Wow, talk about calling it on the dot

  9. Guest says:

    Total runs scored tonight or total shots missed by Dirk: which is the higher number?

  10. JerryNYG says:

    Am I wrong in thinking that we get into these beanball wars with the Orioles far more than other teams? I remember some ugliness right near the beginning of the season in a series with the O’s. Am I crazy?

  11. outsider says:

    the yankees should give a chanse to wilkin arias the lhp from AA they need lhp help, does anybody knows anything about him.

  12. Guest says:

    I think CC retaliates to let the new guy know that they respect him and he’s a part of the team, but…

    I don’t think there is anyway Gonzalez threw at Dickerson on purpose. Seems kinda weird to retaliate — on purpose — for an HBP that was clearly not intentional.

    But I guess all bets are off when you hit someone in the head.

    • CS Yankee says:

      Good points…let’s get up by 5 & plunk one of their bats that was just promoted from AAA, except we’ll hit ‘em in the belly.

  13. first time lawng time says:

    How long is the rain delay. Any word? I’m on gameday.

  14. outsider says:

    why the yankees dont give a chance to wilkins arias the LHP from AA, they only have loogan in pen why not try him out.

  15. CS Yankee says:

    Couldn’t we wait for Posada at 1B for the Mets series?

  16. Mike HC says:

    This Kim Jones interview with Joba and Robertson is absolutely great.

  17. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    So allegedly the tarp is coming off.

  18. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    Why not put Swisher it 1B, DH Posada, and put Andruw in RF?

  19. Cy Pettitte says:

    the who?

  20. nedro says:

    They’re easier on the eyes than the ears…

  21. Mike HC says:

    That albino red head is quite striking.

  22. MikeD says:

    Tonight’s final score: 2-1 Yankees in 17 innings.

  23. Cy Pettitte says:

    xbh for Jeter, wow

  24. MikeD says:

    Wow, an old-style Jeter hit. Very heart-warming. : -)

  25. jetrer says:

    I guess the weirdness is continuing from last night.

  26. nedro says:

    Holy shit, a lead-off 2-bagger!!!

  27. Xstar7 says:

    Didn’t see that coming.

  28. Rob says:

    Jeter’s got an edge!!!

  29. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    RISPFAIL is a thing of the past.

  30. nedro says:

    Back 2 Back XBH!!!!!

  31. Karl Krawfid says:

    Grandy baby

  32. Greg says:

    It took them teo batters to score 1 run

  33. Cy Pettitte says:

    Grandy = beast

  34. Xstar7 says:

    Damn. They’re teeing-off on Bergesen already.

  35. Greg says:

    They’ve already scored as many runs as they did last night

  36. jetrer says:

    Time for the Kay right way to play baseball lecture.

  37. Ken M says:

    nice start!

  38. jetrer says:

    horrible call

  39. Karl Krawfid says:

    God that was so far outside

  40. Cy Pettitte says:

    wow, not cool.

  41. jetrer says:

    definitely needs to be retaliation now

  42. Chairman Mao says:

    Now CC really needs to hit one of theirs.

  43. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Easily on purpose. EJECT BERGESEN!!!

  44. Pat D says:

    Not watching since I’m at work. Where did Cano get hit?

  45. MikeD says:

    Showalter trying to get the Yankees to retaliate in the hopes of getting CC thrown out of the game.

    Being serious.

    • Greg says:

      They would issue warnings first.

      • jetrer says:

        not always. Umpires are frequently dumbasses

      • MikeD says:

        I guess. Did they last night before Gonzalez was tossed? Umpire can pretty much do what he wants to do.

        • Greg says:

          The reason he got thrown out was because he got him in the head and it was just after giving up the big hit

          • MikeD says:

            Still highly unusual. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I’ve saw that where there were no warnings issued, no player had been hit in teh game, and the circumstances make it pretty obvious he didn’t intentionally throw at him.

            I’m sure it’s happened, and I’ve probably seen it, but cna’t remember it.

            My point is I don’t put anything past Showalter. After what he saw last night, he might try it to see what happens.

            He also might have been thinking the Yankees will retaliate for Dickeson (and Martin the previous time), and knowing the possibilty that the umpire might immediately issue warnings, he went for first blood.

            Or it was just accident, although I don’t believe it was in this case.

      • Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

        No warnings were issued last night

  46. jetrer says:

    ARods “Strikeout” what a joke

  47. Cy Pettitte says:

    this fucker is all over the place

  48. Xstar7 says:

    Bases loaded for Swisher? Oh boy.

  49. Cy Pettitte says:

    lol Pie, thank god Swish finally did something!

  50. nedro says:

    bases loaded. here’s where they rispfail….or not!!!!!


  51. Karl Krawfid says:


  52. jetrer says:

    sweet Swish

  53. BigBlueAL says:

    Posada flying around the bases!!

  54. Cy Pettitte says:

    also, a big “fuck you” to Buck

  55. Chairman Mao says:

    Nice rip by Swisher. Good to see him go the other way.

  56. 101010 says:

    Nice slide, Jorge.

  57. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    And we’ve exceeded last nights run total in 0.2 innings!

  58. MikeD says:

    Chris whatawhat?

  59. Greg says:


    Now I can use my previous statment about the run total

  60. nedro says:

    WOW. Pen warming in the top of the 1st???

  61. Ken M says:

    I am loving this!!!

  62. Karl Krawfid says:

    Just seen my first nasty factor 100 on gameday.

  63. Rich B says:

    Chris Jackovasaurus warming up

  64. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Cliff Lee just pinch hit in Philly. They are really desperate for offense!

  65. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Good thing the Yankees didn’t hit any homeruns. They would have totally killed that rally.

  66. Hummingbird S. says:

    Love it, the offense coming back. Feels good!

    • Xstar7 says:

      Don’t get too excited. Bergesen is awful.

      • MikeD says:

        True, but when teams are slumping they don’t hit the horrible pitchers either, which is why they’re slumping. Five runs int he first inning is a good thing, and A-Rod and I think Gardner shouldn’t have been called out on strikes.

  67. Drew says:

    I know its the first inning but looks like this one is over.


  68. Xstar7 says:

    I can’t wait until someone hits a grounder to Posada.

  69. jon says:

    lol opps

  70. Greg says:

    They issued warnings

  71. 101010 says:


  72. Chairman Mao says:

    There it is. I knew it was coming. Good work CC. Now we can resume play.

  73. jetrer says:

    nice CC, very nice

  74. Cy Pettitte says:


  75. MikeD says:

    It was an accident, come on. :-)

  76. Xstar7 says:

    Wow, who predicted that CC would get the first two men out then hit Nick Markakis?

  77. Greg says:

    This better not lead to runs.

  78. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    God that was fucking stupid.

  79. BigBlueAL says:

    Too bad for Markakis the ball slipped out of CC’s hand.

  80. Cy Pettitte says:

    CC – 1
    Orioles – 0

  81. Xstar7 says:

    There you go CC, there you go.

  82. Greg says:

    Now its a moot point

  83. MikeD says:

    I shouldn’t be, but when balls are hit to Cano now I get tense. He’s only made three official errors, but he’s missed quite a few other plays. We’ve seen him go through lapses in the past, but it’s been few years.

  84. lower case j says:

    Kenny’s comment right after the HBP was classic. “Nicely set up with that curve ball.”

  85. Sheepmeister says:

    This strikezone is already annoying

  86. Cy Pettitte says:

    in the next 6 games 2 are on My9 and 1 is on Fox, awesome.


    • MikeD says:

      My9 is fine. It’s the same broadcast team, and they still do the postgame show.

      Fox or ESPN = bad.

      • Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

        I’m really surprised that Sunday’s game isn’t an ESPN game. Then again I guess they wanted to do a game at Citi Field as well.

        • Chairman Mao says:

          I was too until I saw Cubs-Red Sox. Those two teams don’t meet very often and they have big fan bases so it’s understandable.

      • JerryNYG says:

        Problem with My9 is the picture looks like shit.

        • nedro says:

          I’m in central NY, and TWC has no my9 in HD.


          • JerryNYG says:

            Yup. I live in northern NY and we don’t even get My9. We get the Yankees raw feed on channel 1027. The picture and audio are terrible. Better than nothing, of course, but I still hate it. I bought an LCD big screen and a home theater set up SPECIFICALLY for baseball and football.

            • Stratman9652 says:

              Same boat, some of the my9 game are broadcast on NBC (wstm) out of Syracuse, but most of the time they consider Access Hollywood more important. I didn’t know about the raw feed channel I’ll have to check that out.

        • Mike Axisa says:

          The audio is messed up as well.

      • nedro says:

        Love it when the final out is made and it cuts straight to “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader.”

        Actually I don’t…

  87. Greg says:

    Im afraid that the offense has already gone back into remission

  88. Avi Atkin says:

    Hopefully it’s smooth sailing from here. I hope Girardi pulls Martin after his third at-bat. Russell has exerted himself plenty so far, I hope the Yankees can limit his mileage so he can continue produce come October and in years ahead.

  89. Cy Pettitte says:

    ok, just get through 5 ASAP please

  90. Xstar7 says:

    I really hope this doesn’t end up like that Rangers game where they jumped out to a 7-0 lead but got rained out before they could get the whole 5 innings in.

  91. Guest says:

    The Giambino has three homeruns in three at bats.

  92. Kostas says:

    I see that Cano was hit and then CC hit Markakis. Intentional and retaliation? Were both benches warned?

    Nice to see the offense spot CC 5 runs but they need to keep hitting, since Swish’s double that is 7 in a row retired fairly easily.

  93. Guest says:

    First pitch swings.

  94. Guest says:

    Swish, this is not a part of the plan.

  95. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    The rain out rule should be based on the team that has more fans in the stands.

  96. Cy Pettitte says:

    just hack away and make some outs

  97. Mike Axisa says:

    Make some outs fellas, get these five innings in.

  98. Cy Pettitte says:

    god, now all these morons wanna get hot and score 15 runs

    but nice hitting BG

  99. Mike Axisa says:

    Outs damn you, outs! Not hits, make outs!

  100. Greg says:

    I think are going to force this one in because they already have two rainouts with this team and there is no place to put this game

  101. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    Jeter…look at that power!

  102. Cy Pettitte says:

    Jeter TWO XBHs lol

    but seriously, JUST MAKE OUTS

  103. DCBX says:


  104. Xstar7 says:

    Back to Back triples? I like it.

  105. YanksFan in MA says:

    Baltimore broadcasters said it is supposed to go in and out. Rain will not stop this game from being completed.

  106. Hall and Nokes says:

    Jeter cycle tonight. Has a 45-year old ever hit for the cycle?

  107. first time lawng time says:

    Okay, let’s hurry up and make this game official.

    That would be unfortunate if the game was called.

  108. first time lawng time says:

    Guys, I think they should bunt here.

  109. Kostas says:

    Watching Verlander… The ONLY thing that would make him better would be Pinstripes.

  110. Greg says:

    Mike Boddicker

  111. Guest says:

    3 triples and 2 doubles. No singles. No HRs.

    I wonder how many times a team had at least five hits in a game and had more triples than any other kind of hit. I imagine that it would be weird.

  112. first time lawng time says:

    Lol anyone notice that there are so many more comments when the Yankees are losing?

  113. Karl Krawfid says:


  114. Cy Pettitte says:

    Tex message to Buck: “hey, fuck you.”

  115. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    text message

  116. Xstar7 says:

    Teix Message

  117. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    All I can say is this game better not get called. Also XBH FTW!!!

  118. Guest says:

    Sterling thought that was out from the crack of the bat.

    A lot of guys stats want this game to be official.

  119. Greg says:

    Looks like the rain has let up a bit

  120. Kostas says:

    have to think it is about time CC got some run support. Now pitch the shutout.

  121. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    Beckett just got pulled with only 83 pitches. he was cruising….

  122. Rookie says:

    With a concussion, it’s always better safe than sorry. As I understand it, if someone with an unhealed concussion reinjures it before it heals, it can become chronic and devastating to the player’s performance, his career, and the quality of the rest of his life. And the insidious thing is that you might never know that the concussion was the culprit.

  123. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    Giambi had three jacks tonight? must be back on the juice

  124. Cy Pettitte says:

    @TBrownYahoo: Millwood has agreed to a minor-league deal with Red Sox.

    el oh el

    can’t wait to face him (assuming he gets to the majors)

  125. JobaWockeeZ says:

    I missed the plunking. What happened? A pitch on the numbers and the umps warned everyone?

    So much for he won’t hit anyone.

  126. Rob says:

    man, these no stress games are awesome. i really hope there are no rain (or lightning) delays

  127. Greg says:

    First single they’ve hit tonight

  128. dela g says:

    great job tonight for the offense. fun stuff

  129. That fat guy behind the plate is annoying

  130. Cy Pettitte says:

    lol this is hilarious

  131. To: Ken Singleton
    1- Don’t compare a legit #2-3 starter prospect with this shitty guy.
    2-Define “fairly effective”

  132. Hall and Nokes says:

    Worst stall tactic I’ve ever seen.

  133. Guest says:

    This one is going to get called after 5. Closest thing to a MLB mercy rule.

  134. Cy Pettitte says:

    get those seeds out of your mouth Alex

  135. That had to be on purpose Michael.

  136. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    the tigers have a player named “Dinks”…that’s rough…middle school must’ve been horrible for that dude.

  137. pat says:

    Lets hope this isn’t Texas all over again.

  138. It speaks to the type of game it is where the bases are loaded with 0 outs, you don’t score any of those runners, but it doesn’t feel frustrating in the least.

  139. boogie down says:

    What pitch was just thrown to Grandy? Gameday labeled it “Unknown” and had it about 2.5 feet above the strike zone.

  140. Xstar7 says:

    RISP fail

  141. Guest says:

    RISP Fai –, ah nevermind.

  142. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    this half inning is like a playoff game. get ‘er done, CC!

  143. 101010 says:

    I’m loving those Met ERAs

  144. Cy Pettitte says:

    RA Dickey against Freddy Garcia – the first MLB game where neither pitcher will hit 89?

  145. Rob says:

    nick swisher playing an impressive rf

  146. Kostas says:

    Nice!!!! Miguel Cabrera with a “fuck you” Daniel Bard.

  147. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    damn…Bard just gave up back to back to Boesch and Cabrera!

  148. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    ballgame over? yankees win…

  149. Greg says:

    But once again CC hasn’t really shown the dominance.

  150. Xstar7 says:

    Daniel Bard just have up a two run game tying home run to Miguel Cabrera.

  151. Rob says:

    did the red sox sign millwood?

  152. Why do they keep showing us a drowning butterfly?

  153. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    Walman is pining about how wet balls are hard to handle….

  154. Cy Pettitte says:

    Kay keeping it real in regards to standings in May

  155. Kay being really smart.

  156. Cy Pettitte says:

    yay Jorge

  157. Xstar7 says:


  158. Kostas says:

    While we all agree he is past his prime, love seeing Posada start hitting. Hope it continues as part of his big Fuck you to Levine and Brothers Steinbrenner.

  159. Mickey Scheister says:

    It’s so good to see a rout after this past week!

  160. 7 straight 1′s on the top half of the linescore.

  161. Cy Pettitte says:

    hahaha Vlad that was horrible

    just embarrassing

  162. King George says:

    For those who care:

    WEEI just reported that Beckett left the game with neck pain and soreness, so much so that he couldn’t turn to his head to the left and wound up being forced to leave the game with 83 pitches thrown.


  163. Cy Pettitte says:

    Papschmear is gonna blow this

  164. Mickey Scheister says:

    Curtis Granderson is toolsy. That is all.

  165. Mike Myers says:

    papelbon looks like he is about to blow it

  166. Mike Myers says:

    i hate that face paps makes before he pitches…makes me want to murder kittens

  167. Boesch and Cabrera due up with the bases loaded and 1 out. Come on guys.

  168. Mantle28 says:

    I love these types of games.

  169. Mike Myers says:

    i love how everyone has given up watching our game and is rooting against stinktown. true sportsmanship we have. F PapelDouche

  170. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    alright Miggie…let’s get it on here you fat dough faced sonofabitch

  171. Mickey Scheister says:

    Cmon Miggy!!

  172. Cy Pettitte says:

    wow fucking Miggy makes Papeldouche the hero

  173. Mike Myers says:

    NOOOOO….damn u miggy drunk face

  174. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    damn it!

  175. Kostas says:

    Fucking Cabrera k’s with bases juiced… How can that fatso not hit a Papelbon fastball?

  176. Drew says:

    What an awful season finale of The Office. They didn’t even pick a new manager

  177. Xstar7 says:

    The Tigers have RISP Fail fever.

  178. Jeff Karstens, Male Model says:

    Miggy with the obvious Red Sox bias.

  179. Greg says:

    We should have at least put the Red Sox in a bigger hole then they are now. We wasted their bad start. Not to bury them but to put them in a very difficult hole.

  180. Kostas says:

    Who is a bigger douche? Papelbon or Valverde

  181. MikeD says:

    He’s a Diety. Get with it, guys.

  182. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    i can’t even think of the red sox player i hate the most…i hate all of them equally.

  183. Xstar7 says:

    CC is mowing the Orioles down.

  184. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    sox are going to win it..damn it!

  185. Cy Pettitte says:

    Al Albuquerque is gonna blow it

  186. V says:

    Of course… I bench Ortiz because he’s facing Verlander. He goes 3/4 with an HR.

    Meanwhile, the guys I play go 0/3 (Werth), 2/5 (Granderson), 0/4 (Bourn), 0/4 (Joyce) and 0/1 so far (J.Upton).

    Every.Single.Day. the guy I bench because of matchups does better than most of the guys I play ;-)

  187. Maybe we should hit Russ Martin in the two hole.

    Gardner LF
    Martin C
    Teixeira 1B
    Rodriguez 3B
    Cano 2B
    Granderson CF
    Swisher RF
    Posada DH
    Jeter SS

    This lineup looks good. Anyone agree/disagree?

  188. V says:

    Damn. Just missed it. I might pick Posada up in my league if he shows another couple good days. C’s been an awful position for me this year; Posada–Arencibia–Ramos–Iannetta.

  189. Kostas says:

    what a play to get one out in the BOS/DET game…

  190. Cy Pettitte says:

    Ellsbury lol

  191. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Way to get an out there DET

  192. 28 this year says:

    Can someone explain what just happened on Lowrie’s ball? I got gameday up and it makes no sense what happened.

  193. Cy Pettitte says:

    fucking Carl Crawford

  194. Kostas says:

    Carl Crawford… still sucks and was overpaid.

  195. MikeD says:

    For a guy who is having a horrible year, Crawford keeps coming up in gift spots to drive in the winning run this year.

  196. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    crawford earning that $20MM..

  197. BigTimeBartolo says:

    I’ve only been following the game on gamecast, why did Jones PH for Arod?

  198. Greg says:

    Great. And now Crawford is starting to hit. Start the media campaign.

  199. Cy Pettitte says:

    CC CGSO or do you go to Mo?

  200. dela g says:

    Let ZZ pitch the entire game

  201. Jeff Karstens, Male Model says:

    I’ll take a Red Sox win for a Beckett injury every day of the week.

  202. Esteban says:

    Is Joe gonna let CC finish? Meh, doesn’t bother me either way.

  203. mike c says:

    LOL at bartolo throwing sunflower seeds in nova’s face

  204. mike_h says:

    damn, was hoping we didnt have to crack into the bullpen, either way I’ll take CC with 8 IP and a 11-0 win!!!

    way to go offense!!!!

  205. FIPster Doofus says:


  206. jetrer says:


  207. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    LOL Eduardo

  208. Cy Pettitte says:


  209. swishers fauxhawk says:


  210. DCBX says:

    I know! Let Swish pitch the 9th.

  211. So I wasn’t really paying attention, and I thought Grandy had gotten my fantasy team more points. I was disappointed.

  212. dela g says:

    lol eduardo nunez homer???

    fuck yes

  213. 101010 says:

    “his throwing arm”


  214. DCBX says:

    BOOM goes the dynamite.

  215. MikeD says:

    Clearly, this means he’ll make a two-run throwing error in the bottom of the 9th.

  216. Xstar7 says:

    Holy Shit Eduardo

  217. Cy Pettitte says:

    all star infield

  218. CBean says:

    I’d grown attached to the shutout.

  219. Damn, we’re gonna lose this shutout.

  220. Cy Pettitte says:

    Sanit will be gone tomorrow

  221. Xstar7 says:

    Sanit is going to ruin the shutout

  222. Cy Pettitte says:

    booooooooooooooooo no shutout

  223. MikeD says:

    Robertson warming up?

  224. Rob says:

    It would be pretty difficult to make this game interesting, at least sanit is trying.

  225. jetrer says:

    Sanit’s bus ticket to Scranton is being purchased as we speak

    • MikeD says:

      Just thinking the same thing. He won’t be of use for a couple games, he’s suckin’ right now, so he’ll be replaced by the start of tomorrow night’s game.

    • Jorge says:

      Who cares, really? This isn’t the kind of guy you lose sleep over. As a Cuban, I can tell you that “Amaury Sanit” directly translates into “Buddy Carlyle.”

      And they just won. Left side.

  226. Lily says:

    yankees still dont have a shutout! i really wanted a shutout.

    • MikeD says:

      We could have had back-to-back ones, although unknown what Bartolo would have done last night, or CC tonight, if left in.

      My guess is if Roy Halladay was on the Yankees the last two years, he’s have maybe one complete game. Maybe.

  227. Xstar7 says:

    Neftali Feliz just blew a save in Kansas City.

  228. swishers fauxhawk says:

    You have got to be kidding.

  229. jetrer says:

    this is getting painful to watch

  230. Jorge says:

    Can Michael Kay shut up about going to the bullpen? Sanit has about five more runs to give up before I even get the bullpen started. Really, Sanit. You’re not giving up 14 runs this inning.

  231. jetrer says:

    one more out…just one more out… PLEASE

  232. CBean says:

    Is Ayala available?

  233. Xstar7 says:

    Ugh, we just can’t ever have a clean, crisp win can we?

  234. Lily says:

    i was just gonna complain about them not able to play a clean game….but GAME OVER!!!!

  235. klemy says:

    If you’re reading this, I hate you Michael Kay.
