Game 48: Gettin’ Away

By

(AP Photo/Kathy Kmonicek)

This 16 games in 16 days stretch has been interesting, to say the least. Six straight losses early on, six wins in eight games with some cameback fun mixed in at the end, it certainly hasn’t been the easiest two weeks on the old blood pressure. A win this afternoon, heading into the off day and west coast trip, would be a fine finish to a decidedly un-Yankees-like stretch of baseball. Here’s the starting nine…

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

Freddy Garcia, SP

The game starts a little after 1pm ET, and you can watch on YES or listen on WCBS 880 if you’re stuck at the office. Enjoy.

    s/o pls explain to me why Gardner isnt in the lineup??!! hes been on a tear for the past month. why does Girardi always over think

    • Clay Bellinger says:

      Eh, Reyes is left-handed, so Jones is in. Granderson has crushed lefties, so no need to sit him. Someone’s gotta sit.

      • ike says:

        since when is gardner a platoon outfielder? since when cant he hit lefties? with an off day tom, no reason for gardy not to be out there today

        • Mike HC says:

          The day game after a night game might have something to do with it as well, plus the lefty. You don’t want to wear Gardner out either. I can see him sitting today.

        • JobaWockeeZ says:

          215/.338/.306 vs lefties.

          That may be good for you but not for Girardi.

          • Jose the Satirist says:

            That is his line versus lefty starters just to clarify.

            • Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

              Gotcha. He gets on base well vs lefties and IIRC he didn’t have much of a platoon split in the minors. Either way, giving him a day to see what Jones can do isn’t the worst thing in the world.

          • ike says:

            most of that was from the early part of the year, when he was struggling to hit off anyone. in his last 100 pa he has a .349/.433/.506 let the kid play especially with an off day tom.

            • CP says:

              I assume that you would sit Swisher instead. Here are their lines against lefties this year:

              Gardner: .304/.385/.348
              Swisher: .302/.365/.349

              Considering that Swisher sat on Sunday and Monday, I don’t really see a problem with giving Gardner a day off here.

          • Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

            Where in the world did you get those from??

            2011 vs LHP: .304/.385/.348
            2010 vs LHP: .252/.373/.353

            Looks pretty good to me.

            http://www.baseball-reference......1&t=b

        • Clay Bellinger says:

          He’s not necessarily a platoon OF, but Jones was brought here to play against lefties and, although he has not fared well to this point, for the time being he’s going to get that opportunity to become that power right handed bat.

    • Jose the Satirist says:

      I just looked up the tear he has been on. In his last 100 PA he has a .349/.433/.506 line. Didn’t realize he was doing that well for that period of time.

    • A-Rod's Wingman says:

      Well Andruw hit two jacks so alls well that ends well, I guess.

  2. Sean C says:

    Here’s to hoping that I won’t be sitting at my desk cussing under my breath for the rest of the afternoon while listening to John and Suze.

  3. NHyankeesfan says:

    Im worried Russel Martin’s going to be used up by the allstar break

    • MannyGeee says:

      just in time for the Jesus?

      • Mike HC says:

        Alongside some of the veterans getting hot (Tex, ARod, Swisher, Cano) when Granderson and Martin inevitably cool off a little bit. That is how it usually works anyway with this Yankee team and in general. Some guys hot, some guys cold.

    • jon says:

      in the AL east only 2 catchers a caught 40+ games

      martin 41 and weiters 40

      everyone else has caught around 35

      • MannyGeee says:

        FWIW, this is most likely due to Cervelli missing time. If Gus Molina didn’t blow, I would imagine Russ would be in that area…

      • Mike HC says:

        We needed him to carry the squad to a certain extent early in the season. Gotta use the guy when he is hot.

        But agreed will probably tire down the stretch a bit.

      • Esteban says:

        He caught a lot of games early when there were rain outs and Gus Molina was the backup. I am surprised to see him in a day game after a night game. He’s been one of the Yankees’ most consistently good hitters though.

    • CP says:

      I thought that Girardi LOVED Cervelli and would do anything in his power to get him in the lineup. Perhaps that little narrative was a little off?

  4. Billy Mumphrey says:

    Yesterday’s comeback means nothing if we can’t take the series today. We can’t continue to lose series, especially at home.

  5. Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

    Hoping Sweaty Freddy can improve on this performance: http://www.baseball-reference......4290.shtml

    Like to see him put less than 12 runners on base in this one.

  6. Mister Delaware says:

    Game over. Season over. We suck. Trade everyone.

  7. jon says:

    1 one 1 triple

    ugh

  8. Greg says:

    Anyone know an online radio stream?

    • MannyGeee says:

      gots to buy it. MLB is mega strict about Internet radio stream they don’t get a piece of. any stations that broadcast streams over the air are either blacked out over the web or go to ‘regular scheduled programming’…

  9. King George says:

    Good grief. Here we go again.

    • Mister Delaware says:

      See, this is why people like you look stupid. If you think that, just say it to yourself and move on. Typing it out lets people like me mock you for your insta-panic ways.

  10. Mister Delaware says:

    Clifflee doesn’t hit like that.

  11. Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

    Nunez makes my blood pressure ESSSPLODE!

  12. Yank The Frank says:

    Lead off triple – no runs – Freddy get Ready.

  13. Mike Axisa says:

    Very nice Freddy, though the hacky Jays certainly helped.

  14. Jeff Karstens, Male Model says:

    Freddy Garcia picked up Nunez’s blitz on Tex nicely there.

  15. Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

    Yay! Bring that .308 OBP up a tick for our leadoff hitter.

  16. King George says:

    DJ with a double?!?!?

  17. FIPster Doofus says:

    Granderson is so awesome.

  18. Esteban says:

    John Sterling just said we shouldn’t worry about Jeter’s ability to hit for power because he’s hit for power in the last two weeks.

  19. jon says:

    the grandy man

  20. Mike Axisa says:

    Heart you, Curtis.

  21. JM says:

    Yay scoring first! Maybe the RISPFAIL switched from the Yanks to the Blue Jays in the 8th inning last night.

  22. Urban says:

    A vintage hit from Derek makes me feel all warm and nostalgic, remembering the past. Another hit from Grandy reminds me of the present.

    Go Yanks!

  23. Esteban says:

    Curtis Granderson is a god.

  24. jon says:

    please let it be one of those games for the OTHER team for once

  25. Urban says:

    We’ll see how they score it? Uhh, an error, Michael.

  26. Cy Pettitte says:

    Curtis is amazing

    lol Aaron Hill

  27. Kostas says:

    Nice to see other teams fail.

  28. RollingWave says:

    If I were a Jays fan I’d smash my TV with fist by now…

  29. RollingWave says:

    This guy can’t find the strike zone, don’t swing until 2 strikes or seomthing

  30. Andy says:

    Alex’s leg kick is back. Did you see how high it was on that swing?

  31. Cy Pettitte says:

    1 run….they got off too easy lol

  32. FIPster Doofus says:

    Shitty luck.

  33. Yank The Frank says:

    The Lord giveth and taketh away. Crap.

  34. Urban says:

    Yikes.

  35. Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

    Fuck it. If that inning is any indication, poor little Jo Jo is about to get rocked.

  36. RollingWave says:

    WTF!!!!!!

  37. Mister Delaware says:

    Kim Jones confirms the Yankees would have lowered their own chances of winning in 9 had Gardner reached. Good stuff, Girardi.

  38. Jerome S. says:

    Wish we had A-Jax for that play.

  39. RollingWave says:

    Fuck it. If that inning is any indication, poor little Jo Jo is about to get rocked. settle down and pitch a shutout from here till the 9th inning.

  40. V says:

    Greg: “Anyone know an online radio stream?”

    Do you have a smartphone? MLB At Bat app is -awesome-. $15 for EVERY GAME in the season, home and away broadcasts, English and Spanish.

    • MannyGeee says:

      +1

      even if you listen to 1 game a week (while at work or in the car, whatevs)… this thing is totally worth it.

      • V says:

        And want to listen to Vin Scully call the Dodgers? Boom. Bob Uecker call the Brewers? Boom.

        Really an awesome app.

    • Greg says:

      Excellent, I appreciate it.

    • Esteban says:

      That’s what I’m using now (god I hate John and Susan!). How is it cheaper than the mlb.com audio?

      Also, anyone know how delayed it is?

      • Esteban says:

        I see it’s about a minute behind Gameday, so, what 2 minutes behind live?

      • Kostas says:

        That is what I have and I think it depends. Found it can be behind Gameday, ahead of TV, but I think it is just 3 seconds at most… or enough time to delay the stupidity that flows from Suzyn….

        Could her voice not work for George Costanza’s mother?

      • MannyGeee says:

        MLB.com audio is 19.99 for the season. I listen to it at work jus about any time there is an interesting game on during the day.

        • MannyGeee says:

          my bad, misunderstood the question.

          great question. Got to imagine MLB will get wise to it and lower the price of the CPU app next season in order to keep it relevent, otherwise everyone will just go smartphone…

  41. Cy Pettitte says:

    Cano is toooo smooth, lol

  42. Mister Delaware says:

    Jesus, Robbie. Back off.

  43. Yank The Frank says:

    Freddy is great pitcher to have in a series following CC. Two completely different looks.

  44. Cy Pettitte says:

    this is a guy Swisher should mash

  45. Mike Axisa says:

    Yay Andruw. That’s why he’s on the roster, folks.

  46. jon says:

    and thats why jones is in the lineup today

  47. Cy Pettitte says:

    Andruw crushing lefties makes me happy

  48. Karl Krawfid says:

    Release Jones! Oh wait.

  49. Billy Mumphrey says:

    And that’s why Andruw is on this roster, to smash lefties.

  50. James A says:

    thats what hes here to do baby
    crushed right there

  51. MannyGeee says:

    Andruw is ‘Keeping up with the Jonses’…. ugh, I take back all the great things I said about the MLB app. John + Suze = BRUTAL

    • JM says:

      I just bought that app yesterday. It’s amazing and I got it so when I get sick of Waldman and Sterling I can switch broadcasts.

  52. Jerome S. says:

    Andruw Jones:

    Better than JoVa.

  53. V says:

    Wow. The Twins have put six balls in play vs. Bedard. An infield single and five groundouts (one was a double play).

  54. Greg says:

    Thanks Cleavland, deciding you are not as good as you’ve been vs Boston.

    • V says:

      Their pitching is going to come back to Earth this Summer. Too many high 80s guys pitching out of their minds.

      Of course, my only Red Sox player on my fantasy team isn’t playing (Youkilis).

    • Jose the Satirist says:

      A Talbot and Lester matchup is a little lopsided.

      • MannyGeee says:

        yeah, youre proly right… The Sawx are just gonna have to fight and grit against Talbot to keep up…

    • FIPster Doofus says:

      Salty just went yard again.

      • RollingWave says:

        generally the perfect measurement of when a pitcher sucks bad

      • AndrewYF says:

        Yeah, he’s only really hitting vs. pitchers having awful days.

        I’m just glad that maybe this will fool the Red Sox into thinking they were clever enough to turn Salty into a major leaguer and eschew actual players to replace him.

  55. Yank The Frank says:

    Grandy Man is on fire!!

  56. MannyGeee says:

    OK Granderson is officially in beast mode. everything is just hammered.

  57. Cy Pettitte says:

    Curtis is gonna be hitting .300 soon

  58. Mister Delaware says:

    I love games that O’Neill does.

    • Urban says:

      So do I. It’s not like he’s a great, trained broadcaster, but he does add a good perspective from the player’s point of view, and usually provides something insightful from that perspective at least once a game. Overall, though, he adds a bit of humor to the broadcast. And, of yeah, he’s Paul O’Neill. We love him.

    • Clay Bellinger says:

      I agree. He’s pretty awesome.

    • FIPster Doofus says:

      He’s good. Cone, Singleton, Leiter and O’Neill are all fun to listen to. Flaherty, not so much.

  59. Ben from Stanford says:

    Esteban, if you’re using the MLB app for radio, why are you listening to Jon and Suzyn rather than the Toronto broadcast? I almost always listen to the opposing broadcast when I’m listening online.

    • MannyGeee says:

      just made the switch, its like listening to a real ballgame! god to I hate John + Suze!

    • MannyGeee says:

      the sounds from the field are insane on the Toronto broadcast too! you could hear the announcers on the field, the AB music, everything!

  60. Cy Pettitte says:

    Teix! fuck yea

  61. Jeff Karstens, Male Model says:

    Rally Killer.

  62. Billy Mumphrey says:

    Bats have come alive today. What a way to go out before the west coast trip.

  63. Mike Axisa says:

    These damn guys with their damn homers.

  64. Yank The Frank says:

    Dammit, what are they doing with all these home runs? That’s not solid baseball!!

  65. MannyGeee says:

    Tex is just insane

  66. RollingWave says:

    what is this hitting thing….

  67. Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

    Let’s go Swish.

  68. Urban says:

    So Kay not making the west coast trip? My love-hate relationship with him means I enjoy a game or two when he’s away, but then I feel the broadcast loses something without him. I may have to knife myself for a Flaherty/Lorenz broadcast, especially since it will be late at night. I might fall asleep.

    They need O’Neill to pair with Lorenz when Kay is gone.

    I’m guessing Kay’s contract must have just come up for renewal and he negotiated time off, probably related to getting married.

  69. RollingWave says:

    plz start hitting Swish

  70. Cy Pettitte says:

    how can you not run into 1 win in 28 starts? that’s amazing

    Coltrane express ftw

  71. RollingWave says:

    oh shit who’s hurt?

  72. Cuso says:

    This is when Swisher hits homers. When they’re up 5-0 and they mean nothing. Here it comes…

  73. RollingWave says:

    ugggggggh, come on Swish, your a guy i REALLY don’t want to root against.

    • Tim says:

      Why would you root against him? Because he isn’t hitting? Are you rooting against Jeter and Posada, too?

      • Cuso says:

        Swish has been far worse than Jeter & Posada.

        And he doesn’t have either of their legacies with the team.

        He may have a ring, but he’s completely shit the bed in both the 2009/2010 playoffs.

        I don’t buy his happy act, never have.

        • Clay Bellinger says:

          but considering he plays a part in the success/failure of the team, you’d obviously hope that he does well.

          • Cuso says:

            I hope that he reverts back to doing what he’s actually good at and can help the team with – that being drawing walks.

            The guy cannot swing his way out of a slump, period. And he goes up there every at-bat like he’s going to hit the homer to break his awful stretch.

            I HOPE he realizes this sometime soon and starts working counts and getting on base.

          • Mike HC says:

            Looking at all the posts from people who seem to take such joy in Jeter not coming through, I think it is safe to say that with some fans, there comes a point where you start to root against a player. Like you don’t want to keep being dissappointed, so taking joy in their outs is the only way to get satisfaction from them.

        • Mike HC says:

          Does that mean you don’t like his personality? Or that you think he is really the sad clown? Or both?

          • Mister Delaware says:

            Who doesn’t miss the good ol’ days of Randy Johnson.

          • Cuso says:

            I’ve learned to accept the constant smile and good cheer. But I still think it’s a bit disingenuous.

            When he starts bobbing his head talking about “his” creatures and saying how big a particular hit that he had to get him going…..

            Yeah, I admit it. I throw up in my mouth a little.

            • CP says:

              What makes you think it’s disingenuous? I think that’s just the kind of guy he is, and it’s sort of refreshing to have someone with a personality.

              • Mike HC says:

                Yea, he is great from a fans perspective. And as RollingWave demonstrated, no matter how much he struggles, he is just a guy you want to root for.

                • Cuso says:

                  From a fans’ perspective?

                  Why? Because he waves and giggles a lot?

                  I’m not trying to single you out, but I hear that “great for the fans” bullshit angle a lot.

                  He’s no “better” for the fans that Granderson or Gardner are.

                  He has to use a boisterous personality to “get over.”

                  I love Granderson’s and Gardner’s approaches. Fans love their approaches too.

                  Swisher might be engaging to FAIR-WEATHER FANS who would otherwise be bored.

                  But guess what? As any die-hard (i hate that term) fan will tell you, “they ain’t real fans.”

                  • Mike HC says:

                    You have something against Swisher. Which is fine. I don’t care. My comment was not intended to disparage any other Yankee, or any Yankee fans.

                    Someone that Swisher reminds you of must of slept with your wife or something, ha.

                    • Cuso says:

                      Lol.

                      You’re right in that he reminds me of someone that I know that I really, REALLY dislike.

              • Cuso says:

                I said “a bit” disingenuous.

                I understand his personality is upbeat. But he forces it from time to time.

                In any event, it’s irrelevant. While his personality may rub me the wrong way, I’m sure everyone else adores him.

                It’s his bat and lack of plate discipline, and constant poor angles and bobbles in the outfield that drive me nuts.

                YES, I know he’s got outfield assists this year, but he’s also made awful throws.

                I see a guy that wants to be a hero constantly, that wants to show off constantly, that acts goofy constantly.

                You can all love him. We’ll just have to agree to disagree.

            • Mike HC says:

              What goes up, must come down. So I agree with you to a certain extent.

  74. Urban says:

    Gotta be Barfield.

  75. nsalem says:

    correct it was

  76. Cy Pettitte says:

    lol 81mph nothingball to the back

  77. Mike HC says:

    I answer Bautista to that question.

  78. Cy Pettitte says:

    Soooooooo nice to have someone who throws out a respectable % of runners

  79. Skip says:

    I like this O’Neill coming out of retirement story…this is why I love having a broadcast crew of former players…makes me like them even more.

  80. Brazilian Fan says:

    Wow Garcia ia awesome so far. Comeback player of the year?

  81. Yank The Frank says:

    Bye Bye Jo Jo

  82. Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

    Geez, the Yankees don’t catch a break on the west coast either. They run into Pineda, Felix and then Cahill, Anderson and Gonzalez. That’s a rough trip.

    • Cy Pettitte says:

      hopefully they miss Weaver and Haren

    • Jose the Satirist says:

      Haven’t the Yankees been pretty good against Gio?

      • Guns of the Navarone (a mushroom cloud layin mothafucka, mothafucka!) says:

        Yes but Gio seems like he has finally matured into the pitcher they thought he was going to be. He’s a different pitcher. I wouldn’t put too much stock into past numbers.

        • Jose the Satirist says:

          I still believe the Yankees can hit him even though the previous numbers are a super small sample. He had a 2.9 ERA last year against all teams except the Yankees, but the Yankees still managed to score 10 runs in 8.1 innings. His control has improved but I think the Yankees may just see him well.

  83. Urban says:

    Barfield has the best arm I’ve seen, and that’s saying alot, since I’ve been watching games since the days of Dwight Evans, who is right up there at the top.

  84. bonestock94 says:

    I love Paul O’neill.

  85. Kostas says:

    Seems that after watching clips of Jeter, his balance is off. Wonder if that was the reason for the non stride they tried? Anyone know…

    • Brazilian Fan says:

      i think he is just too old.

    • Mike HC says:

      His balance is off in the field too. It is called getting older. Kind of sucks to watch.

    • Urban says:

      His line-drive percentage, which used to be up in the 20% range, is down to slightly below 12%. He just can’t drive the ball to right as he did for about fifteen years. I’m afraid to say it’s simply age. So, yes, his balance may appear off, but that’s what happens when a player loses just a fraction of bat speed. It’s cruel game and it’s going to get worse.

  86. Mike Myers says:

    the boston game is close

  87. jon says:

    cano is so god damn smooth

  88. Karl Krawfid says:

    Blown strike 3 call turns to a double.

  89. Mister Delaware says:

    Love watching Martin receive the ball.

  90. Brazilian Fan says:

    lol at freddy change ups

  91. Cy Pettitte says:

    there goes the CGSO, lol

  92. Cy Pettitte says:

    potential dumb question: why do hitters have such a hard time picking up the split finger? can’t they see the seems between the fingers coming out of his hand?

    • Mister Delaware says:

      I imagine if it were that easy, you could pick up any other obvious grips like the slider too. Maybe guys who are a bit more short arm (Jason Motte, for some reason, comes to mind) or guys with almost no deception who expose their hands early might be easier to read but, for the most part, you’re looking spin.

      (Granted, I haven’t hit live pitching in a decade and a half and I doubt anyone had a splitter anyway.)

  93. first time lawng time says:

    Had no idea they were playing this afternoon.
    Came home and saw they were up 5-0.

    Cool.

  94. Esteban says:

    Goddamnit, AtBat audio is 4 pitches behind Gameday.

    And Thanks Ben from Stamford for the reminder to switch to the Toronto broadcasters.

    • Ben from Stanford says:

      Glad to help. If one less person has to listen to Sterling I’m happy :).

      Does it stay 4 pitches behind if you refresh the page? Sometimes that works.

  95. jon says:

    good news: Jeter is no longer the worst hitter on the team

    bad news: nick swisher is

  96. Cy Pettitte says:

    Andruw! certified lefty masher

    el chato who?

  97. Mike Axisa says:

    I don’t think anyone will be asking why Jorge Vazquez isn’t up today.

  98. Greg says:

    Andruw Jones

  99. Karl Krawfid says:

    Release this man!

  100. Yank The Frank says:

    Jonsey, Jonsey Jonsey

  101. Jesus Montero says:

    oh……ANDRUW!!!!!!

  102. Mike HC says:

    Andrew Jones baby! Marcus Thames version 2.0.

  103. JM says:

    Toolittlehomers

  104. Mike HC says:

    hahah … ARod had to remind Cano to give a shit about the homerun.

  105. Esteban says:

    I dig Andruw Jones’ AB intro music, “Hustle Hard”

    And wooooo, ANDRUW. Keeping the JoVa crowd at bay.

  106. Xstar7 says:

    As soon as I flip the TV on, Andruw mashes one to center. This game looks like it’s going well so far.

  107. jon says:

    yikes this weekend is not going to be good for the yankees

  108. first time lawng time says:

    Nova vs Hernandez

    that’s laughable.

  109. Greg says:

    Only game we take against Seattle is Sunday

  110. Brazilian Fan says:

    Yankees are Felix bitches

  111. Cy Pettitte says:

    Swisher and a prospect for Ichiro

    Ichiro
    Grandy
    Teix
    ARod
    Cano
    Martin
    Jorge
    Jeter
    Gardner

    • Brazilian Fan says:

      really?

    • Greg says:

      Interesting.

      But Seattle would hang up the phone.

    • Mike Axisa says:

      Have you seen how Ichiro is hitting this year? He’s not Ichiro anymore, he’s just another guy with no power. The Yankees don’t need another late-30′s singles hitter making almost $20M a year.

    • Favrest says:

      I’d consider that deal. I really value Swisher’s presence. He’s been like this before. Hopefully, Kevin Long can straighten him out. I see a lot of the same things in Jeter and Jorge too. It’s bat speed, but it’s also a recognition of pitches. Swisher was right on the fastball in the 7th, or so he thought. If it was a fastball, it would have been roped. Too bad it a change up.

  112. Xstar7 says:

    Freddy is pitching to the score

  113. Greg says:

    Get the bullpen warming

  114. tom says:

    Doesn’t this seem like time for a new pitcher? Everyone’s rested; off-day tomorrow. Why put his one in any doubt?

  115. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    Meh. So Freddy’s mainly a six inning pitcher, no biggie. Gotta get the pen fired up, though.

  116. Yank The Frank says:

    Bring on Houdini

  117. Cy Pettitte says:

    nice Nunie

  118. Mike Axisa says:

    Nice little play by Nunez.

  119. Greg says:

    Good play by Nunez. There’s hope.

  120. Carl says:

    Very nice, Nunez. Very nice.

  121. Xstar7 says:

    That was a terrific 0.2 IP for Robertson.

  122. Greg says:

    Well that was easy.

  123. David N says:

    Another day, another escape for D-Rob.

  124. MannyGeee says:

    Nunez = Best defensive infielder on the team (so long as it does not involve throwing to first)

  125. Greg says:

    McDonald showed Jeter range right there.

  126. Yank The Frank says:

    Tack on please. Thank you.

  127. Esteban says:

    Damn, Granderson only needs 15 pts of OBP or SLG to get his OPS to 1.000. Yeah, OPS is not a great stat, but that would still be AWESOME.

  128. Greg says:

    I might have bunted Martin in order for the tack on to begin

    (ducks for cover)

  129. Cy Pettitte says:

    Swish flirting with the Mendoza line

  130. Dela G says:

    this has been a great game to watch at work on the ol mlb.tv

  131. Xstar7 says:

    Another long single. Nice play by Brett.

  132. Dela G says:

    great play by grittster

  133. Xstar7 says:

    There you go Joba, there you go.

  134. Yank The Frank says:

    Great DP started by the Captain.

  135. Dela G says:

    lol at walking jose molina

  136. Greg says:

    Joba with the cardinal sin of walking Jose Molina I think

  137. FIPster Doofus says:

    LOL at the Paul O’Neill game summary.

  138. Greg says:

    Mo might need the work. Hasnt pitched in a week

  139. Xstar7 says:

    94 mph heater from Mo? I like it. Aaand there’s the ballgame.

  140. Greg says:

    As soon as he retires HIRE HIM AS BULLPEN COACH
