Tonight’s Yankees-Reds game has been rained out. The two clubs will play a double header tomorrow, the first game at 12:35pm ET and the second at 7:10pm ET. Brian Gordon and Freddy Garcia will start the games, we’re just not sure what order. Joe Girardi also confirmed that both Russell Martin and Alex Rodriguez will only start one game each. Well, this bites.

Update: Garcia gets the day game, Gordon the night cap.

    Would have sucked more to have to play both the Reds and the Sox at the same time. Lulz.

    Tonight’s Yankees-Red Sox game has been rained out.

    (Sorry, sorry. I normally am not obnoxious about these things, but I could not resist)

    I think you gotta find something to do Mike!!!

  • Mike Myers

    Did this site get hacked like the playstation network? Damn teenaged english!

  • Mike Axisa

    Oh shut up all of you.

    • Mike Myers

      funny job you have. If I screwed up at work and immediately 10,000 people knew about it and would bust my chops….I think I might go postal. haha.

  • Greg

    Technically he’s right. The Reds were the Red Stockings.

  • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

    I blame Javy Vazquez.

    • FIPster Doofus

      Cervelli’s fist pump pierced the sky and begat rain.

        Andruw Jones.

        • Thomas

          In Scranton, where Greg Golson is located, it is not raining.

          Just throwing that out there.

            Your ideas intrigue me, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

            • Pat D

              Is that the newsletter where it says the Vietnam War was the result of a bet between Howard Hughes and Aristotle Onassis?

              • nsalem

                I thought that war was a bet between Tom Yawkey and Dan Topping.

                • James


    • Pat D

      I still blame Randy Levine.

  • Greg

    Well most likey we will split the double header going 4-2 in the NL parks so far before the Mets.

    • nsalem

      actually it’s more likely we we will either sweep or be swept than split.


      • Slugger27

        If games are assumed 50/50, how did u reach this conclusion

        • nsalem

          without factoring in a favorite it’s 50/50 at best for a split. I’m wrong.

        • nsalem

          If tonight’s betting line holds true for tomorrow and the second game is around the same
          7/8 yankees favored. chances for a yankee sweep would be approximately about 36% Reds sweep 16%
          and a split 48%.

  • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

    The good news is, this rainout gives us more time to work on this trade for Matt Garza.

    • Pat D

      Habba wha?

      • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

        Check the previous thread.

        • Pat D


  • James G.

    Well, that sucks…

    …In related news, anyone check out the awesome Brett Gardner article on Fangraphs?

    • Pat D

      I was trying to figure out how we can make sure both Teix and Gardner make the All-Star team as reserves.

      I think Teix has a better chance. The problem is going to come from filling the team requirements, specifically from Baltimore, Chicago, Minnesota and Kansas City. At least with Tampa Bay, Seattle, Oakland and Los Angeles we can be sure they’ll go with pitchers.

      • bexarama

        I don’t think too many Yankees will make it as reserves, because so many will start and it’s not like Girardi’s picking them. Gardner isn’t the type of OF that appeals to managers at first glance, especially considering I can see Ellsbury going.

        Tex is awesome, but I can live with him not going – you have to figure AGon’ll win the voting, Cabrera is going, and Konerko might be the White Sox representative and all of those guys are deserving too.

        • Pat D

          I want to see stars, dammit!

          And by stars I mean Yankees!!

    • FIPster Doofus

      ‘Tis a great read. It’s nice to see Brett get his due.

  • A-ROD fan


  • bexarama

    I’m excited to watch A-Rod and Martin in only one game each but watch pitchers bat in both games!!

    • Cris Pengiuci

      And the added bonus is you get to see a pitcher and Cervelli bat in the same game! Almost the same thing!

      • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

        I’m already on the edge of my seat in anticipation of 6 or 7 hours worth of potential doubleswitching.

      • bexarama

        just please please please don’t have a Nunez/Cervelli/Pena/pitcher bottom of the order. Oh please. (Then again, they’d probably score like 14 runs, just knowing wacky randomness and all that.)

          Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but…

      “Wait a minute.”

      “Hang on a second.”

      “What’s going on here?”

      “Something doesn’t add up.”

      “Just a minute.”

      “Time out.”

      “This ain’t quite right.”

      Oh now I get it, you were being sarcastic.

    • Ana

      Teh strategy is so wonderful. It makes ya think!!

      • first time lawng time

        It’s REAL baseball!

  • Rey22

    Ughhh, I’m so bored, I was looking forward to the game.

  • BGrider85

    IMO…Joey Votto is gonna hit Sweaty Freddy HARD tomorrow.

    • CP

      Luckily, the games are played on spreadsheets and not the field, so we should be able to predict exactly what will happen.

    • CS Yankee

      I wonder how long he’ll be suspended after he hits Freddy hard…5-10 games?

      • first time lawng time

        You know, there’s not enough fighting. The Yankees havent had a legit brawl since that incident in ’09 vs Tor.

  • first time lawng time

    Nooooooo. I was so looking forward to watching the Yankees play seeing the umpires call strikes and balls!

  • first time lawng time

    Sooo with the rainout, I guess I have no excuse to not do my summer work.

    Ugh. They should just play in the rain. Suck it up and be men.

    • Pat D

      To see why this would not be a good idea, look up the 1925 World Series, Game 7.

  • Bob Q.

    Another reason why interleague play sucks. Or bites.

  • sangreal

    Guess Brian Gordon will have to pitch to Cervelli :(
