  1. MattG says:

    I never read any of them, including this one.

  2. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    If nobody reads them, why is there injury news?

  3. Pat D says:

    I ready these things.

    Also, Marcum sucks against the Yankees.

  4. James A says:

    You know what makes catching routine fly balls hard to catch? Being high during the game

  5. Jonathan Harker says:

    I read every post by Mike, Joe, and Ben. Tonight will determine whether or not we sweep. We have a favorable pitching matchup tomorrow, AJ needs to not give up the long ball.

  6. Mike Myers says:

    great news on Phil

  7. Matt Montero says:

    I ready them, Jeter at Trenton will be insanity

  8. Mike Myers says:

    from rotoworld:

    There is a “good likelihood” Bartolo Colon (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list to start Saturday against the Mets, according to Yankees GM Brian Cashman.
    Colon tossed 60 pitches Tuesday in a simulated game and practiced bunting drills Monday in preparation for taking the mound in a National League park (i.e. Citi Field). The big right-hander has been sidelined since June 12 with a left hamstring strain and will return to a stellar 3.10 ERA

  9. John Kruk's belly says:

    Please God, let Hughes come back strong and healthy.

  10. 28 this year says:

    I am so rooting for Hughes. I hope he’s back adn strong next week, hopefully with a new fire that will finally let him harnass that potential.

  11. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Ryan Franklin released. Is he worth a try?

  12. King George says:

    Yanks will have the best rotation in the MLB besides Philly…which is hilarious since everyone was uncertain/panicky about it before the season started.

    • 28 this year says:

      well it kinda helped the question marks all seemed to work out, some to a higher degree than others.

  13. AndrewYF says:

    Every day I look at the little smiley face at the bottom of the page, and it makes me feel a little better about the world.

  15. Mondoas says:

    I DO read this everyday and then I read all of the Yankees’ fans posts on Facebook as they all re-post it. Btw, who’s leading off tonight? LOL!!

  16. Kostas says:

    I think it is funny that Red Sox would sacrifice defense just to get Papi in the line up. DH is a worthless position – pitchers should hit.

  17. Karl Krawfid says:

    AJ walked Nyjer Morgan?

  18. Xstar7 says:

    AJ Burnett-esque

  19. Greg says:

    Here we go.

  20. Jonathan Harker says:

    Throw the hook, damnit! Enough with that fastball on 1-2!

  21. John Kruk's belly says:

    AJ has such a great pick-off move

  22. Karl Krawfid says:

    Take your time AJ.

  23. YankeesJunkie says:

    Nice DP to limit the damage.

  24. Greg says:

    Well, just like last start, AJ avoids the meltdown.

  25. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Lol @ Fielder sprinting

  26. Greg says:

    The Mets scored 4 runs off Phil Coke in the top of the first. Base clearing triple by Scott Hairston. Damn, they are rolling

  27. first time lawng time says:

    He limited the damage. He’ll give up 2 more runs max in the remainder of this game.

  28. Cy Pettitte says:

    nice AB by Curtis

  29. Mike Axisa says:

    Wow, that was some take by Granderson.

  30. Jimmy McNulty says:

    Was that Phil Nevin I saw in the Brewers dugout?

  31. Guest says:

    Tex and change-ups: As friendly as Bartolo and vegetables.

  32. Karl Krawfid says:

    Slow ass game man.

  33. Jimmy McNulty says:

    Where’s Alex’s power gone?

  34. Pat D says:

    Epic fail, Hart.

  35. Cy Pettitte says:

    what a catch! Curtis is amazing.

  36. Xstar7 says:

    Great play by the Grandyman!

  37. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Holy shit Grandy

  38. YankeesJunkie says:

    Does Hart not realize that everything left of center is going straight to a vacuum cleaner.

    Great play by Granderson!

  39. Kostas says:

    That was pretty!

  40. tom says:

    Fine play by Curtis, but Hart had no business being anywhere past 2nd.

  41. jerrynyg says:

    The Grandy Man is amazing! Well worth the spare parts we unloaded for him!

    • TheLastClown says:

      AJax & IPK were not spare parts.

      So often I see polarized opinions on this trade, either that it never should’ve been made, or it was just highway robbery.

      Neither one of those, IMO, is accurate.

      • jerrynyg says:

        Well, I realize you can’t read tone but I was being sarcastic. Earlier in the same thread I made the exact opposite statement, that the trade never should have been made.

        Real talk for one minute here: it was a great trade for the Yankees. Granderson in the prime of his career likely to be worth more than what they gave up. That doesn’t mean the guys the Yankees gave up have no value, but IMHO they have less value than Granderson.

        • TheLastClown says:

          A ha, interpretation fail.

          & I agree, great trade for the Yankees. If Curtis was putting up an analogous season to ’10, then it looks a bit closer.

          I loved the trade when it happened, and I love it more each & every day we get to see Curtis do his thing.

        • Guest says:

          I imagine this is the first usage of “Real talk” on RAB. I approve.

  42. Ivan says:

    Wow what a play by Granderson.

  43. TheLastClown says:

    I just love our defensive OF

  44. Mike Axisa says:

    Cano’s relay was ridiculous. Caught it, turned, threw the ball chest high to Tex in an instant. Wow.

  45. Erica says:

    GRANDY!!! CANO! TEX! Damnit, this team. This. Team.

  46. Frank says:

    Who is the long man tonight for the Yanks? I don’t see AJ being long for this game.

  47. Cy Pettitte says:

    “A-rod told me earlier this year hed like phil coke back in pen for yanks. Maybe he gets wish. Coke miscast as starter” – Heyman

    http://twitter.com/#!/SI_JonHe.....1960256512

    huh?

  48. James A says:

    Brandon Morrow perfect through 3 against Pittsburgh, Dan Haren perfect through 3 against Washington
    They should do a poll question right now who has the better chance of actually throwing one

  49. TheLastClown says:

    Please Michael, never compare Jeter to Yuni ever ever again.

  50. Guest says:

    OK, Reyes is 2-2 for with his 30th SB.

    This is Adrian Beltre in his last year with the Dodgers. Just an epic contract push. Amazing.

    (I know he’s still an elite talent outside of his results this year, but this year he’s putting up one of the best half-seasons for a lead-off hitter that I can remember).

  51. YankeesJunkie says:

    Looks like Burnett is settling down a bit.

  52. Pat D says:

    Now can the lineup that has hit Marcum to a .303/.380/.674 line please show up?

  53. Pat D says:

    Mo Vaughn!

  54. lily says:

    im happier when i see yanks putting up some runs. it be nice to see some hits ad

  55. Greg says:

    We seem to do this when AJ is throwing a gem. We dont score any runs. I read on here that we have lost two 1-0 games from AJ this year.

  56. lily says:

    finally a hit!

  57. Xstar7 says:

    Brett Gardner: Platoon left fielder

  58. jdp says:

    the home plate ump in Philly called a total of 22 balls on the 22 batters in the first 3 innings. isn’t that kind of weird? We should get that guy behind the plate for Colon’s start on Saturday. He’ll throw an 85 pich complete game.

  59. Xstar7 says:

    How was that a strike? Is this umpire even paying attention?

  60. Jonathan Harker says:

    Marcum can throw that curveball anywhere and this ump will call it a strike.

  61. YankeesJunkie says:

    Granderson the walking man

  62. Mike Axisa says:

    Curtis Granderson is a walk machine. Wasupwitdat

  63. Mojo says:

    Someone teach this man how to hit a fucking changeup!

  64. mike c says:

    mark teixeira, hits: 70, HR: 24

  65. Mariano's Pimp Hand says:

    That walk brings Granderson’s OBP to .365 matching his career high.

  66. Cy Pettitte says:

    Flash and Kay are distracted by everything.

  67. Guest says:

    OK, Grandy’s new found patience is quite impressive. Also, 55 pitches for Marcum.

  68. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Tex CAN NOT hit those changeups

  69. Mojo says:

    Fuckin’ gingersnaps! If there’s ONE thing I hate watching more than Jeter’s awfully routine ground balls, it might just be Texeira’s piss poor approach (or lack thereof) against the changeup.

  70. Pat D says:

    I know it’s only 3 innings but I’m already annoyed.

  71. Xstar7 says:

    RISP fail. They can’t do anything against Marcum’s changeup.

  72. wow says:

    ump’s a joke.

  73. Sheepmeister says:

    This is getting ridiculous for marcum

    http://www.brooksbaseball.net/.....evDate=629

  74. Pat D says:

    ARod, Yount…

  75. first time lawng time says:

    Through 1/3 of the game, the offense has been utterly craptastic.

    But AJ is pitching, so I’m not surprised.

  76. nsalem says:

    Banks

  77. Jonathan Harker says:

    This is yet another ballgame AJ is gonna lose 1-0. Where is our offense? You know that Doug Davis guy who shut us down? Released today by the Cubs, one of the worst teams in baseball doesn’t want a guy that shut us down.

  78. first time lawng time says:

    So if Colon and Hughes come back healthy and effective, who leaves the rotation? Gotta be Garcia, right?

  79. CBean says:

    I’m hoping this doesn’t turn into one of those games where AJ pitches awesome and loses on this one run he gave up.

  80. Mike Myers says:

    Braun is gooood.

  81. Sheepmeister says:

    I wish burnett would get the calls that marcum is getting on those corners.

  82. Mojo says:

    A running Jew. Ironic, no?

  83. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Kay and Flash are reeeeeally board

  84. Pat D says:

    DP = Burnett’s best friend.

  85. Xstar7 says:

    Hooray for double plays

  86. YankeesJunkie says:

    Love the DPs, hopefully the Yankees can figure out the change.

  87. John Kruk's belly says:

    3 DPs for AJ. Now offense come alive!!!!!

  88. the tenth inning stretch says:

    Corey Hart looks like should be doing something other than playing baseball. I’m thinking either chasing dingoes in the Australian outback, or maybe posing on the front of a Lucky Charms box. Any ideas?

  89. Cy Pettitte says:

    Robbie!

  90. Karl Krawfid says:

    LOL Morgan

  91. Xstar7 says:

    Robbie Cano, dontcha know?

  92. CBean says:

    Ok get Robbie home!

  93. Mike Axisa says:

    Nyjer hit the wall harder than Cano hit the ball.

  94. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Lolmorgan

  95. Jonathan Harker says:

    There’s a wall there, Morgan.

  96. Fritz says:

    I love the Triple! Gardner would of had an inside the parker

  97. TheLastClown says:

    Nyjer! Nyjer!!

    (it was a tough play I know)

  98. a.hinds says:

    the brewers announcers just brought up the fact that morgan was a hockey player. which is unusual, because he’s black

  99. CBean says:

    Swisher!!!

  100. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Swish!

  101. Cy Pettitte says:

    hooray for Swish being Swish again

  102. Xstar7 says:

    There you go Swish, there you go

  103. Mike Axisa says:

    That was a 3-1 changeup. But I was told Nick Swisher can only hit 2-0 fastballs. Or was that homeruns only?

  104. Hall and Nokes says:

    Sterling: you know Suzyn, next time we get a chance I’m going to go out there and find out how hard that wall is out there.

    Me: head first, John. Head first.

  105. Greg says:

    Ump is giving him inside braking ball

  106. I still can’t decide if Nyjer Morgan is the best bad centerfielder in baseball or the worst good centerfielder in baseball.

  107. Carl says:

    [I'm late on this] The heck was Nyjer thinking? He nearly hurt himself running into the center field padding.

  108. Fritz says:

    Life is good. We are in first place and getting Colon, Hughes, and Jeter back.

  109. Cy Pettitte says:

    76 pitches already, lets crack into that lolpen soon

  110. Mike Axisa says:

    That was a hanger.

  111. Cy Pettitte says:

    HIP HIP!

  112. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Hip Hip

  113. Ivan says:

    It must be that short in RF.

  114. Karl Krawfid says:

    Jeez 228 for russ

  115. first time lawng time says:

    This is a very stupid question, so forgive me. Is Robertson injured or unvailable? Because I saw him in the dugout. Aren’t relievers supposed to stay in the bullpen? I’m sorry; I’ve just never seen that before. Not sure if it’s a rule that relievers are supposed to remain in the bullpen. Stupid, I know.

  116. Len S. says:

    All the Posada haters can suck my cock!

  117. Ivan says:

    Boom!!!!

  118. the tenth inning stretch says:

    MUSCLE.

  119. Cy Pettitte says:

    RUSSELL!!!!!!!!!!

    he needed that badly, happy for him.

  120. Greg says:

    Russell the Muscle!

  121. Jonathan Harker says:

    She’s gone! Welcome back, Russell!

  122. YankeesJunkie says:

    Thank goodness for the defense playing back.

  123. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Rusell with Muscle!!

  124. Pat D says:

    Way to be Russell!!! Makes me want to give you my All Star votes!!!

  125. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Also that was on an 0-2 pitch

  126. John Kruk's belly says:

    Thank you offense for coming alive. It’s alive!!! It’s alive!!!

  127. Jerome S. says:

    Granderson:Uncured

  128. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Geez lackey

  129. John Lackey is just as ugly running the bases as he is pitching. Or breathing.

  130. first time lawng time says:

    OMG Corey Hart would totally be a lumberjack.

    http://www.thesportsbank.net/c....._24_11.jpg

    Picture him in that picture, except wearing flannel, one of those raccoon hats, and a hatchet.

  131. YankeesJunkie says:

    Cruisin’

  132. Cy Pettitte says:

    AJ shutdown inning after getting the lead, awesome

  133. swishers fauxhawk says:

    Seven pitch innings?

    Very good, sir.

  134. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Those cigarette commercials are SO FUCKING DISTURBING!!!!!

  135. Mike Axisa says:

    Was not aware that tomorrow is a day game. I approve.

  136. I love how we have three pitchers that give Yankee fans paranoid, stomach-turning agita in the first inning, fears of imminent doom by the second inning, and then have turned in a sterling performance by the 6th/7th inning and nobody remembers what they were freaking out about earlier.

    Nova/Burnett/Garcia have to lead the league in hyperbolic fan boverreactions.

  137. Mojo says:

    I’m not always sure how I feel about games when the bottom half of the order is picking up the slack left over from the top. I mean, I love, love, LOVE the circularity that the lineup demonstrates from time to time, but it also disappoints me when the supposed big guns aren’t contributing the way one would normally expect them too. Again, though, I think it’s my issues with Teixera. I just expected far too much from him (power AND average). Do I seriously have to get used to his .250 BA? Is this just the player that he is? Color me sad :(

  138. Monteroisdinero says:

    So I was driving and heard Sterling call the Martin HR. Russell the muscle and:

    “Monsieur Martin e la!”

    /I think

  139. wow says:

    Big Fish Eye McGee is due up. Dang bro, do something about those eyes.

  140. YankeesJunkie says:

    That was a hell of play.

  141. Xstar7 says:

    Who are you and what have you done with Eduardo?

  142. Pat D says:

    The Big Bopper is coming up? That would be interesting.

  143. John Kruk's belly says:

    Braun GIDP please

  144. John Kruk's belly says:

    Not a good spot for AJ…….

  145. Pat D says:

    Randall Simon didn’t like the Sausage Race…

  146. wow says:

    that’s trash

  147. Jimmy McNulty says:

    Wel that could have been quite a bit worse.

  148. Pete says:

    going to the game tomorrow – anyone know if that shopping center down the street from the stadium still offers the cheap game-day parking?? Thanks!

  149. Xstar7 says:

    Could have been a lot worse.

  150. first time lawng time says:

    Good job by AJ. Limiting the damage. I am so happy for him!

  151. Mike Axisa says:

    That’s not bad. First and second, one out, Braun, Fielder, and Hart due up. Didn’t hit a ball out of the infield.

  152. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Yay-J

  153. John Kruk's belly says:

    Time to ravage their pen.

  154. Cy Pettitte says:

    what the fuck? lol only Posada

  155. Pat D says:

    Oh boy.

  156. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    How the fuck is that not a HR?

  157. Pat D says:

    Home run. It hit the fan off the bounce.

  158. Jonathan Harker says:

    That ball is gone. HR Jorge.

  159. Greg says:

    Hit a fan. Its a HR.

  160. Dela G says:

    Wow hip hip

  161. Reggie C. says:

    ground rule double?

  162. Xstar7 says:

    That should of been called a HR.

  163. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    That’s a HR.

  164. Dela G says:

    Definitely hit the fan first. Homer

  165. Heh, the guy’s kid has an Orioles yarmukle.

    ZOMG TONY TARASCO ALL OVER AGAIN

  166. CBean says:

    That was a home run!

  167. Cy Pettitte says:

    home run! hip hip!

  168. The Fallen Phoenix says:

    Wow, Michael Kay is dumb sometimes. I guess you have to fill empty airtime, but that’s no reason to debate an easy call with John Flaherty.

  169. CP says:

    Does he have to run around the bases again to count as a run?

  170. Monteroisdinero says:

    This Jorge-he’s a kippah.

    /Hebrew joke

  171. mbonzo says:

    That took way too long to review. I’d rather it just be the wrong call than wait a minute and a half to get the call right.

  172. first time lawng time says:

    This happened about 2 months ago, but I’ve never told or here.

    That annoying RS fan and his buddy that were in one f my classes are so dumb. This is an excerpt of one of our conversations.

    Them: the RS are so good; they won 2 world series from 2004-2007z
    Me: Umm the Yankees won 4 from 1996-2000
    Them: it doesn’t matter. The Red Sox are the team of the decade. They won 2 WS in that decade.

    Me: So did the Yankees!

    I also went on to say that the Yankees were th team of the century, bla bla bla.

    Are all RS fans really that stupid?

    FTR it was in an Italian class, so there is a mix of stupid and smart kids.

  173. Monteroisdinero says:

    Man-o-man-o-schevitz!

  174. King George says:

    Apparently, Michael Kay doesn’t know the rules?

  175. mbonzo says:

    Swisher has been really good in rightfield the last few days.

  176. Pat D says:

    Curtis inflating his UZR numbers.

  177. Rob says:

    yea aj for a good game

  178. John Kruk's belly says:

    Well done AJ. Nice quality start. And now your ERA is almost below 4.00

  179. Oh my god STOP EATING YOUR ICE CREAM FROM YOUR MINATURE HELMET DURING GOD BLESS AMERICA YOU DISRESPECTFUL FUCKFACE

  180. CP says:

    If I heard correctly, Kay was commenting on how much the Yankees like interleague, because they have a 153-106 record – the best in baseball.

    The funny thing is, that record works out to a 59.1% winning percentage. Over the same time period (1997-today), the Yankees are 1414-927, for a winning percentage of 60.4%.

    So they’re actually 3 games worse than expected in interleague play.

    • Pat D says:

      I blame it on when they got swept by the Phillies in 1997.

      That was when I knew they weren’t winning the WS that year.

  181. first time lawng time says:

    Beautiful job by AJ. I am very pleased.

  182. Karl Krawfid says:

    Granderson will hit a home run.

  183. King George says:

    I hate the Phillies as much as anyone, but man, they are helping us out quite a bit.

  184. Karl Krawfid says:

    Sox just lost

  185. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Sox lose

  186. Hall and Nokes says:

    You magnificent Bastardo!

  187. Greg says:

    Red Sox lose to Vance Worley and the Phillies 2-1

  188. Pat D says:

    Am I the only one who thinks the Phillies’ offense isn’t really that good? They made Lackey look like a Major League caliber starting pitcher tonight!

  189. John Kruk's belly says:

    So is Tex a career .260 hitter from now on.

  190. Mojo says:

    On SportsIllustrated, whilst giving out the midseason awards, Terry Francona was in the “running” for top manager . . . My question is . . . Why? Because his team underperformed for the first ten games and suddenly turned it on? On paper that team is ridiculous. What’s with the constant nut-sucking of “Tito”? I don’t understand it. Maddon, on the other hand, deserves all the accolades he receives.

    • first time lawng time says:

      Maddon! He’s the man!

      Francona is overrated.

      • Mojo says:

        Yeah, that’s the point. WHY is he overrated? Because he won two series with two of the biggest juiceheads of recent memory? Because he orchestrates daily gang bangs with his boisterous band of kiddy rapists and drug thugs? As far as managing goes, I don’t see the difference he makes. He’s had a top-notch team since he became the coach and, naturally, he’s won with them. Joe Maddon, though, I love that guy. I’d love to see him manage the Yankees. (Not a particularly big Girardi fan)

    • jon says:

      because the red sox are a small market team who complete with the big bad yankees and are full of home town heroes

  191. Dino Velvet says:

    11-3 without Jeter

    2 1/2 lead in AL East

    16 games over .500

    • Xstar7 says:

      Let’s not get ahead of ourselves

      • Mojo says:

        I’m already far ahead of myself. Watching Jeter the past two years has been painful to say the least. I, for one, am definitely in favor of a Jeterless lineup. Not only does it seem more productive, but there always appears to be less “chaos” in the dugout and clubhouse. Honestly, at the moment, I don’t see what Jeter adds to this team. I think he’s been a distraction all season and plugging him back in at the top will be an inevitably painful and grueling experience. I am NOT looking forward to having him back in the lineup

    • Monteroisdinero says:

      but Noony always keeps it interesting.

  192. Cy Pettitte says:

    more AJ? ok.

  193. Rob says:

    i live in northeast pa and over the last three years everyone here has become the biggest phillie fans, i hate them all, but it is nice that they are helping us build a cushion in the ale

    • S.King says:

      i went to school in central PA…phillies fans are awful. second worst to you-know-who.

      • Pat D says:

        Philadelphia fans are terrible.

        Their knowledge of any game is terrible at best.

      • Rob says:

        i take it you mean psu, i went there as well, i hated the eagles, steelers, and phillies just because of the drunken fans and chants, even when it wasn’t during the season. obviously no one ever cared about the pirates

        • Pat D says:

          It was interesting going to Notre Dame. The campus was so diverse in terms of geography that you’d get a little of everything.

          My hall rector was a big Red Sox fan, me and some other Yankees fans got into great arguments with him.

          I really don’t remember too many other Red Sox fans. This was 1999-2001.

  194. Greg says:

    This way if anybody gets on, Robertson can do his thing.

  195. Cy Pettitte says:

    Nunie’d

  196. Pat D says:

    Go Nunez!!

  197. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    God damnit Nunez

  198. Mike Myers says:

    sweet throw!

  199. Karl Krawfid says:

    lol Nunez. Didn’t know if he should stay back or charge. Then almost killed the 1st base coach.

  200. mbonzo says:

    Red Sox with 6 wins and 8 loses in interleague.

    Yankees with 9 wins and 4 loses in interleague. (Not counting tonight)

    This just shows that the Red Sox can’t win in the world series and the Yankee can.

  201. mike c says:

    it wouldn’t be a real game unless nunez made his usual horrendous throw

  202. Rob says:

    i would say pena for a defensive replacement, but who the hell know what you are going to get? maybe when jeter comes back he can be a late inning defensive replacement for nunez?

  203. Tut says:

    Is Nunez that much of an offensive upgrade over Pena?

  204. It'sATarp says:

    I’m starting to appreciate Jeter’s below average defense

  205. Greg says:

    John Wetteland 2.0

  206. Cy Pettitte says:

    95 right by Braun, oh lord.

  207. bill says:

    wow, that was some at bat!

  208. Xstar7 says:

    Braun didn’t stand a chance against D-Rob.

  209. John Kruk's belly says:

    c’mon D-Rob go after him!!!

  210. Monteroisdinero says:

    Robertson with a first pitch changeup to Fielder. If he can get that over-fuhgeddaboutittt.

  211. Xstar7 says:

    Should’ve went with the fastball again.

  212. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    K-Rob

  213. Greg says:

    GOT HIM!

  214. Cy Pettitte says:

    woooooow DRob sitting at 95 is just not fair. love it.

  215. Jonathan Harker says:

    With our lineup, Bartolo and Phil back, and our back end bullpen we’re unstoppable.

  216. Pasqua says:

    Inning intermission: I’m in an 18 team keeper league. Somebody dropped Kendrys Morales. Debating whether to waiver claim him and stash him away in preparation for next year (I’m out of winning contention this year). My waiver pick is #3. Do it?

  217. Rob says:

    i really hope the mets cool off by friday

  218. Monteroisdinero says:

    Kay guessing along with the hitters. Dude did not make the Bronx Science HS baseball team.

    I would love to see him throw out the 1st pitch someday. Has he ever?

  219. Mojo says:

    Swisher with a higher average than Tex. Ouch. Didn’t see that one coming.

  220. John Kruk's belly says:

    D-Rob is nasty. He’s like the biggest cock tease to opposing teams. Always gives them a glimmer of hope…..

  221. bill says:

    Wow, Robertson sure looks sharp these days…

  222. Pat D says:

    Great nights by Teix and ARod.

  223. Jimmy says:

    Boy, Robinson is fun to watch these days.

    • Mojo says:

      Yeah, I’ve sadly lost the deep infatuation and carnal lust I once had for him. He’ll turn it around . . . I hope.

  224. Xstar7 says:

    Show no mercy Mariano.

  225. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Finish them Mo

  226. Ivan says:

    I swear to god I thought that was Rick Ross, then it hit me it was Mo Vaughn.

  227. Dela G says:

    Oh c’mon, ump!

  228. Ivan says:

    Where the Fuck was that pitch?!?!?!

  229. Xstar7 says:

    Oh fuck this umpire. That was strike three to McGhee.

  230. Greg says:

    Mo with 4 strikes.

  231. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Hell yeah Mo. Let’s sweep tomorrow.

  232. Stratman9652 says:

    I wonder if Louisville Slugger sends Mo Christmas cards?

  233. Rob says:

    I really don’t know how i’m going to handle life when mo retires

  234. Xstar7 says:

    2 1/2 games up. With CC on the mound tomorrow, we can easily turn this into a sweep.

  235. Pasqua says:

    Russel Martin: I don’t know how many at bats it’d been since I had an extra-base hit.
    Kim Jones: Do you want me to tell you?
    Russel Martin: Don’t tell me. Don’t tell me.
    Kim Jones: It was 69 at bats.

    Good listening, Kim.

  236. Dela G says:

    Great effing win

  237. PaulF says:

    The Yankees have been a joy to watch over the last three weeks. 14 -4 since the Red Sox sweep and won every series.

  238. Pasqua says:

    Do we achieve the elusive 5-game winning streak tomorrow?

    Drum roll…

  239. CBean says:

    Nooooooo! Mitre! He will never die!

  240. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Great Mitre. Can’t wait till Guadin is back too!

  241. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    HA!!! Joe Girardi called Russ gritty.

  242. bill says:

    Did he just say that meat-tray is back?!?!?

  243. Carl says:

    Mitre?! MITRE?! Are you kidding me?!
