Game 100: Triple digits

By

It’s always a sad day when we get to game number 100. The season has been halfway over for three weeks now, but this seals it. There are just 62 games left in the season after tonight, and that seems like a small number. I’m not ready for the season to be over. Here’s the lineup…

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

Freddy Garcia, SP

It’s been raining pretty much all day, but not a torrential downpour or anything like that. Just a constant rain. I have no idea if they’ll be able to play tonight, but the tarp is still on the field. Since the Mariners do not come back to town this year, you can bet they’re going to wait this out as long as possible. If the game is played, you can watch it on YES. Enjoy.

Update: First pitch is scheduled for 9pm ET, supposedly.

    On HBT they mentioned this.

    “Interesting is that Yankees catching prospect Austin Romine is out of Double-A Trenton’s lineup for the second straight night tonight. He’s believed to be healthy, so it could be a sign that he’s involved in some pending deal.”

  2. Prayers go out to Dave Cameron, great Fangraphs writer, who got diagnosed with leukemia.

    I wonder what kind of pitcher the Yanks would have gotten if Romine’s been traded.

  3. 1stbase says:

    norris also just tweeted that joseph has been scratched also

  4. 1stbase says:

    kuroda caliber i would guess

    • X-62 says:

      Yeah, Norris seems pretty surprised romine ain’t in there today as well. I don’t know about the rest of you but I don’t think I would deal a prospect like Romine for a rental, so a deal for Kuroda or someone of that ilk would kind of dissapoint me.

      If I’m giving up Montero/Banuelos/Betances I want a top of the rotation arm and if I’m dealing Romine plus other solid prospects I think I would want NY to at least get a guy that’s at least signed through 2012.

      Now I have no idea if NY is doing a trade for anyone I’m just saying those are kind of my feelings on the whole Yankee SP hunt.

  5. dennis says:

    I have a bad feeling that we will somehow lose to these pathetic losers. The best scenario is we win today, tomorrow and beat king felix 1-0 in game 3 and he demands a trade.( Hey I can dream)

  6. Sweet Dick Willie says:

    the Mariners do not come back to town this year, you can bet they’re going to wait this out

    Both the Yanks and the Mariners are off on Thursday, so there’s that.

    The M’s are home on Friday; I’m not sure what the CBA says about a day off between coast to coast flights.

  7. nycsportzfan says:

    so whats going on? Romine is outta the lineup and hes healthy?

  8. Guest says:

    Romine and CuJo both out = interesting.

    That’s right in Kuroda/Jackson territory, no?

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      I’d imagine so.

      • JobaWockeeZ says:

        And since there are no rumors of a deal I find a trade happening so much more believable now.

        • Levi says:

          Ha, I’ve taken the same approach to trades. Once the rumors make their way to MLBTR, it usually means the teams talked and then decided against it.

        • X-62 says:

          Me too. If I had heard about the Yanks discussing names with some team for like the past three weeks I wouldn’t but it but suspicious ninja moves I do.

      • X-62 says:

        BTW, Gary Sanchez isn’t playing tonight as well though many have commented they don’t have Sanchez play as much as other guys because of his age so that’s probaly nothing.

        • YankeesJunkie says:

          I would make a point that I am pretty sure it is a night game after a day game which seems like a weird day to take completely off.

    • YankeesJunkie says:

      By themselves that would probably do it, but if there are pitchers involved as well then it will be a much bigger move.

  9. Jedile says:

    I would rather have Jackson than Kuroda, but that is just me. I am okay with trading Romine though. Just hope this deal will benefit us. Can we trust that Kuroda would pitch well in the AL East? At least Jackson has some experience in the AL East.

    • Raza says:

      I also prefer Edwin Jackson. He’s younger and has power stuff. His peripherals are usually very good (or have been good the past 2 years) and has been injury-free over his career. His slider is also one of the nastiest pitches in the league.

    • X-62 says:

      I don’t really like giving up Romine for any rental because I don’t think Jackson or Kuroda is like the differnce between winning the WS this year or not. Personally I’m hoping they could pull off a deal with Romine+ for someone like John Danks who’s solid and signed for one more year.

      • YankeesJunkie says:

        Agreed especially more so considering that CoJo is involved as well. While Romine does not have the upside as the other catchers in the system he seems like he could easily be on an MLB roster for a few years as a starter or back up.

      • JobaWockeeZ says:

        Both Jackson and Kuroda are performing better than Danks.

        • X-62 says:

          Yeah but like I said he’s not a rental they are. Also I didn’t really mean to mention any players specifically I kind of just meant to say I’m not a fan of giving up a prospect like Romine for a half a season of someone.

          • Xstar7 says:

            I agree. These are my biggest concerns about this supposed trade. At least Kuroda and Jackson will be type B free agents. Unless the Yankees plan on resigning them they could offer them arbitration.

        • YankeesJunkie says:

          I would take Danks over Kuroda because of the NL West and Kuroda’s FIP is only .25 lower than Danks.

          • JobaWockeeZ says:

            Kuroda’s xFIP is 3.63 Danks is 3.90
            It’s been said that xFIP is the best tool for future evauluation and offers the closest correlation to ERA. And it’s park and league adjusted.

            Then again Danks is younger with better stuff. Can’t go wrong with either I just fear Danks’ price is a lot, like Montero, Banuelos a lot.

            • YankeesJunkie says:

              If Dank’s price was Montero or Banuelos I would pass.

              On the whole xFIP thing it could also be argued that pitchers have a greater control over their home run rate than we think. However, there are a ton of ways to analyze pitchers.

              Kuroda vs Danks

              SIERA: 3.68 vs. 3.94
              tERA: 4.13 vs. 4.45
              FIP-: 101 vs. 98
              xFIP-: 96 vs. 99

              Pretty close if you ask me, however I think both would be good #3s for the Yanks for the rest of the year.

    • Oscar Gamble's Fro says:

      I don’t like Jackson at all. I’ll take Kuroda. Granted he’s put his resume together in LA, but I still like him better. Plus he did have this one shiny line in Fenway last year, which I do realize is relatively meaningless . . . 7IP, 9K, 2R, 6H, 1BB.

  10. YankeesJunkie says:

    Even with Romine, CoJo, and Sanchez out of the lineups today it is still a pretty good guess who the Yankees could be in the deal for considering we don’t the pitchers if any are involved.

    • X-62 says:

      Exactly a guy like Betances or something completely changes the type of guy the Yanks would get back and unless something is reported none of us know anything about the Yanks minor league pitchers because none of the big ones are being used today anyway.

  11. first time lawng time says:

    As long as they don’t trade Montero, Nova, Banuelos I’m content.

  12. X-62 says:

    Here’s Josn Norris’s quick take.

    http://minormatterstrenton.blo.....ineup.html

  13. Guest says:

    Sanchez is the real smoking gun here. I can’t see the Yankees including Sanchez and Romine in the same package unless it’s for something pretty elite. And if its for something pretty elite, I can’t imagine the other team wouldn’t want one of Betances/Banuelos.

    I also wonder if there might be a three teamer in the works, since I would imagine its unusual for a team to take back to two catching prospects in a trade.

    Of course, the most logical answer is that the Yanks are in serious but non-imminent trade talks with multiple teams involving all of these players, and they just want to be cautious.

    • X-62 says:

      Yeah, It would be real weird to have Snachez and Romine in a deal together so I doubt they are related unless your right and there is a possible three team deal.

    • YankeesJunkie says:

      Considering both Romine and CoJo are both out along with Sanchez I would assume that there would be a little more than just a little discussion and are closer in the negotiating stage.

      Agreed on the point that if the Yankees have two top 5 prospects and a CoJo (a pretty good prospect in his own right) that it would be for a fairly good return.

      I disagree on both catchers being in the trade since Sanchez is so young it will take awhile before he reaches the majors and may be playing a different position at that point, but his bat is very projectable. As for Romine he could step as a back up or starting catcher by the end of this year or the start of next year.

  14. karel capek says:

    And your announcer’s for tonight (if there is a game) are the three usual idiots.

    • first time lawng time says:

      I love O’Neill. Kay isn’t too bad.

      Flash sucks and I honestly do not know why he has this job.

  15. Oscar Gamble's Fro says:

    Is it straight up rubber room stuff to think the Yanks have any chance of pawning AJ off in a trade and eating some of his salary?

  16. CS Yankee says:

    wondering, did the headlines read?…

    Granderson helps Colon pass A’s

  17. mike says:

    The proposed deal is romine, cojo, and manny banny for ubaldo and wiggington. The hold up is the rocks want montero instead of romine

  18. first time lawng time says:

    So why is Scocia a good manager? I mean, why does everyone rave over him? What’s so great about him?

    Just curious.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      This deadline fucking sucks.

    • Greg says:

      You trust his agant?

      • X-62 says:

        seriously his agent wouldn’t dish on a deal. Also if the Yanks are going back and forth on names Romine might not be a player definetly in the deal just a name being bandied about, so the Yanks sat him out to be safe.

        His agent in no way saying that means the Yanks aren’t talking deal right now.

    • YankeesJunkie says:

      That sounds like a load of crap IMO and interference for more time.

    • CS Yankee says:

      So that means he is not going to the Brewers.

      /Zach avoids the Bronx, part 2′d

      • AaronGuielWithASmile says:

        I’d be shocked if the Brewers traded Greinke. IMO they’re still the favorites to win their division, no reason to start selling. If anything they should be looking to buy and make a serious run in their last season with their core intact (dunno if they have the payroll flexibility to pull that off though.)

  19. Dela G says:

    Good god I love hope week

  20. YankeesJunkie says:

    Montero still in the game and Adams starting again in High A. I am really excited to see Adams get back to AA to see him mash.

  21. 28 this year says:

    If Montero is playing, he’s definitely not getting dealt. If there was even a thought of him going, they wouldn’t play tonight just to be safe.

  22. Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

    Montero, ManBan, Romine for Heilman. Make it happy, Cash.

  23. Mike Myers says:

    game starts at 9….

  24. Nuke LaDoosh says:

    is there a projected start time for this game?

  25. YankeesJunkie says:

    Montero still in the game just as an update.

    Also, what is everyone’s opinion on Warren?

    The report seems lie he has a good fastball and cutter, but his curve and change are still pretty raw. He seems to have held his own in AAA, but he seems more like a relief guy in the AL East.

  26. Jimmy McNulty says:

    Five seasons of the A-Team are on Hulu incase anyone wants to kill an hour.

  27. mike says:

    Dan plesac stated he heard those names mentioned. Its not a stretch as those names have been linked in the past.

  28. Zack says:

    Romine seems more likely to be a solid catcher down the line then Montero. I really don’t like the idea of giving up three quality prospects unless it’s for an ace, not a number 2 or 3 starter.

  29. Dela G says:

    Jesus montero is on fire!

    boooom homerun

  30. mike says:

    I hope its false. Ubaldo has been awful since last years all star break.

    Oh man this can be interesting.

  32. Raza says:

    Off-topic but Montero just absolutely crushed a ball for a HR.

  33. Raza says:

    Off-topic but Montero just absolutely crushed the ball for a HR.

  34. Avi says:

    Question: If Colon pitches like this for the rest of the season what kind of contract does he get in the off season? Do you give it to him?

  35. pat says:

    But I thought Montero couldn’t pull the ball?

    • Monteroisdinero says:

      Ridiculous. He can hit an outside fb in the rf seats and can crush inside/over the plate stuff to left. I have seen long homers to left center and ropes off the left field wall at Scranton. In ST this year, he and ARod put on a show and everyone watched balls sail over the lf fence.

  36. Mike D. says:

    I wonder if: Romine, Joseph, Gary Sanchez for Edwin Jackson & Matt Thornton (LHRP)

  37. first time lawng time says:

    So tomorrow will they show durring the pregame what they did today for HOPE Week?

    • Phife Dawg says:

      Yes they will. I can’t wait to see what they do for HOPE Week. Makes me even more proud to be a Yankee fan.

  38. Dela G says:

    good god, ichiro looks lost…

    and he’s on my fantasy team… *sigh*

  39. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    I didn’t know that the Mariners wore those blue uniforms on the road…

  40. Xstar7 says:

    Ichiro is looking awful.

  41. mbonzo says:

    Huge strikezone to be fair.

  42. Oscar Gamble's Fro says:

    Wow, Ichiro’s fallen off a bigger cliff than Jeter. 315 OBP? Is he done? Or may a change of scenery do him some justice?

  43. Dela G says:

    sweaty freddy with 2 Ks already

    looked like a junk ball

  44. Karl Krawfid says:

    Gonna laugh when Kim Jones ask Freddy is he “surprised he’s doing this”

    Holy crap! Second deck in left field at Yankee Stadium is no joke.

  56. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Wow

    That was on the Mark alright

  57. teddy says:

    WHOOOOOOOOOOOO! tex,hitting good righthanded

  58. Jimmy McNulty says:

    If Robinson Cano would be more patient at the plate, had a better knowledge of the strike zone, and didn’t get himself out on shitty pitches he would be the best player in baseball. Instead, he’s merely just the best at his position, yet I still bitch. Sigh…

    Punishment of excellence right there.

    • mbonzo says:

      Its laziness.

    • AaronGuielWithASmile says:

      At the same time, if he wasn’t an aggressive hitter who believed that he could hit any pitch, then he wouldn’t be Robinson Cano.

      Hoping that Cano develops great plate discipline is like hoping that Jeter suddenly develops 30 home run power. It’s just not the way he hits. It’s unfortunate, but true.

  59. Esteban says:

    I was gonna come on and complain about the Yankees not having scored yet, but now I can’t. Stupid Teix.

  60. Xstar7 says:

    Soriano just threw a 1-2-3 inning down in AAA.

    I love seeing a good old fashioned Jeterian swing.

    I know he’s never gonna be a .320 hitter again, but I do think that Jete’s been swinging the bat a lot better since he came off the disabled list.

  133. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Haha, I think the Mariners just got jobbed again.

    That play shouldn’t have even been that close, though. Vargas has to be able to beat Andruw Jones down the line, and Smoak has to take the sure out.

    Nunez gets it done!

    For a second there, I thought Gutierrez was going to get to that on reputation alone

  139. MikeD says:

    I know it doesn’t count because it was against the Mariners, but nice little hit by Nunez.

  140. Frank says:

    Bob Davidson is one of the worst umpires in MLB. It’s amazing this guy is still allowed to work as an MLB umpire.

    • NHYankeesFan says:

      Joe West, Angel Hernandez, and CB Bucknor are still employed, so I don’t think theres a chance in hell of Bob Davidson getting fired

      • mbonzo says:

        The fact that Joe West and Angel Hernandez are on the same crew is a joke. They lead crews in throwing out players by leaps and bounds.

      • Pat D says:

        When MLBN ran down the most memorable ejections of all time, guess who led the way.

        You guessed it…Frank Stallone!

        But it was actually Joe West.

    Brett Gardner is good at baseball.

    WTF GARDNER YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO HIT LEFTIES! Now Jones will never play.

    I know it doesn’t count because it’s against the Mariners, but nice hit by Gardner.

    We’re only up 5-1 in the fourth. Major FAIL on the part of the Yankees.

  145. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    C’mon Jete, let’s put this game away.

  146. teddy says:

    gardner good at baseball

  147. Mister Delaware says:

    I’m calling a gap double here for Captain.

  148. Cy Pettitte says:

    hahahahahahahah oh lord Mariners….

  149. Mister Delaware says:

    Bad teams make bad decisions.

  150. mbonzo says:

    Captain clutch.

  151. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    LOL

    /yesiwatchedcurblastnight

  152. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    FAIL Mariners

  153. Esteban says:

    Yankees are still losing this series!!!!one!

  154. Greg says:

    The M’s strike again

  155. Karl Krawfid says:

    Ima just go to the gym.

  156. Jack Merridew says:

    When it rains it pours, Seattle. Trade us Felix.

  157. BigTimeBartolo says:

    ahhh Mariners…lulz, lulz

  158. Xstar7 says:

    LOL Mariners.

    16 game losing streak? 16 game losing streak.

  159. Jon says:

    wow they cant catch a break

    what are the chances the ball hits the bat on the ground?

  160. Greg says:

    It hit the bat. Murphy’s Law part III

  161. MikeD says:

    Is that really an error? Kind of freak bad luck hitting the bat, which sort of becomes part of the field of play.

    • Jon says:

      its an error because jeter would have been out by a mile if he went to 1st

      • MikeD says:

        Could be. I think the error, though, was scored on Jeter going to second base. In other words, if the runner had been safe at home (which he would have), then it would have been scored a fielder’s choice, but no error. So he received an error because it hit the bat, which becomes considered part of the field of play once the ball is in motion.

  162. Jetrer says:

    clutch bat placement by the Captain

  163. Cy Pettitte says:

    sooooooo much production from CF, good lord.

  164. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Wow Mariners this is laughable

  165. bonestock94 says:

    Wow

  166. Jetrer says:

    Tex heating up too. I like it.

  167. Xstar7 says:

    Representative game by the Mariners here.

  168. mbonzo says:

    Wow Mike.
    https://twitter.com/#!/mikeaxisa/status/95678805041094656

    Not a certain out there, but you look like Nostradamus.

  169. Jimmy McNulty says:

    Don’t get greedy, get the easy extra runs, burn out the bullpen for the rest of the series, and give Sweaty Freddy a huge lead so he can give the pen a night off.

  170. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    I’m surprised that 75 is Grandy’s career high in RBIs. You would’ve thought he’d have more than that in his 30 homer season.

  171. MikeD says:

    Let’s hope the Mariners bad luck continues for two more games, especially when King Felix pitches.

  172. wow says:

    i think the real question here is: can the Rangers score 30 runs on the twins tonight?

  173. Cy Pettitte says:

    Robbie Cano: nope.

  174. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Maybe we’ll see Steve Garrison tonight.

  175. Maybe they’d trade us Felix if we included a fielding coach in the deal. Three-team deal that

  176. Monteroisdinero says:

    Why don’t the M’s just bring up their entire AAA team?

  177. Maybe they’d trade us Felix if we included a fielding coach in the deal. Three-team deal that nets them Larry Bowa, perhaps?

  178. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Haha I love having Paul O’Neill in the booth.

  179. Monteroisdinero says:

    Nunez with the Accurate canon!!!!!!

  180. pat says:

    CGSO for The Chief?

  181. mbonzo says:

    Bets on the day the Yankees make their first trade?

    My gut says tomorrow. 7/26

    • Simon says:

      I’m going to put my money on either tomorrow or Wednesday. I just hope Cash pulls a ninja move and pry’s an ace like Ubaldo, etc. Hopefully Cash will get someone good for the right price and not gut the farm.

      • mbonzo says:

        Idk about a starting pitcher tomorrow, but something might happen. I’m more concerned about the value of the trade.

        • Simon says:

          My bad, meant to clarify that in general, I hope we get someone good for the right price, but I agree no stating pitcher tomorrow, I’d say maybe Wednesday we may hear serious talk for a starter, maybe though.

  182. MikeD says:

    Wow. The Yankees just issued a press release that the Seattle Mariners will be featured tomorrow as part of HOPE Week.

  183. Xstar7 says:

    Tomorrow is a My9 game? You know what that means…

  184. Dela G says:

    what an LOL game for seattle

    • AaronGuielWithASmile says:

      Seriously, watching this is making me kind of sad.

      They might as well trade everyone aside from Felix, Pineda, Smoak and Ackley and start from scratch–everyone on this roster has clearly given up.

      • Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

        What’s sad is that they were actually contending in the beginning of July.

      • Esteban says:

        If you take out those guys, then what would other teams trade for?

      • MikeD says:

        Don’t be sad. There not as bad as they’re playing, and we do NOT want them to start playing better until they leave town.

        If they win tomorrow and then the Yankees have to face King Felix on Wednesday, no one will be feeling sorry for them.

  185. Esteban says:

    Hensley “Bam-Bam” Meulens reference. Where’s TSJC?

  186. Jon says:

    Garcia has been a pleasant surprise this season, but I still think the Yankees need to go out and get a pitcher at the deadline.

  187. Bombers says:

    What will cc do to this lineup tomorrow??

  188. Greg says:

    The M’s have officialy surrendered.

  189. Xstar7 says:

    The Mariners offense is nonexistent. Freddy’s on a complete game pace.

  190. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Reason #682 that I’m glad I don’t have kids:

    There’s a zero percent chance that I’ll have to see the Smurfs

    • MikeD says:

      An incredibly hot and unobtainable chick who you have a major crush on asks you to go see the movie because she always liked the Smufs. What are yo going to do?

      Or are you saying that still falls in the zero percent range?

      • MikeD says:

        …and I have to add that while the name “Smufs” is a typo, I now want to create obscene cartoon characters names the Smufs.

      • AaronGuielWithASmile says:

        The fact that she wants to see the Smurfs with me suggests that she is either a) incredibly stupid or b) completely nutso

        But fine, I’ll upgrade it to a 1% chance.

  191. Cy Pettitte says:

    no triple? Brett sucks

  192. Xstar7 says:

    People actually voted 52% in favor of Ichiro getting 3,000 hits? Not at this pace and at his age.

  193. Carl says:

    Sounds like the Cowbell Man’s here tonight.

  194. Mister Delaware says:

    In 10.5 MLB seasons, Ichiro has 323 UIBB.

  195. This isn’t just CG pace, this is 11-innings pace.

  196. smurfy says:

    Who said Nunez couldn’t field?

  197. Cecala says:

    The Mariners offense is more useless than Magikarp

  198. Cy Pettitte says:

    tomorrow might be the best chance this season for CC to pitch a perfect game

  199. Xstar7 says:

    Awww, the Mariners scored a run. That’s so cute.

  200. Greg says:

    There goes the complete game possibility

  201. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Come on Joe let Freddy pitch a CG or bring in Garrison.

    Also 20 runs for Texas.

  202. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    I LOVE that Garcia is pissed about giving up a run when he has a 7 run lead in the 7th inning.

    Never let up, not even for an inch. Screw “pitching to the score”

  203. CBean says:

    Boo. I just got home and my cable is out.

  204. Greg says:

    Oh Nick

  205. first time lawng time says:

    LMAO Swisher. “Oh Shit!”

  206. bonestock94 says:

    Goddamn, can a freaking trade happen already!?!

  207. Greg says:

    He’s starting to tire

  208. Jon says:

    wow the angles are actually closer to the wild card than the rays right now

  209. mbonzo says:

    Melky ties it up!

  210. Guest says:

    O’Neill proposed on the phone. He called collect. Classic.

  211. Cy Pettitte says:

    Ayala still alive?

  212. Greg says:

    That was a hanger. Good move to get Garcia out.

  213. Esteban says:

    Another pretty good start from Garcia. The 2003 all star team has performed pretty well for Brian Cashman this year.

  214. teddy says:

    great game by garcia

  215. Bill says:

    Dear God, that’s Boone Logan’s music!

  216. mbonzo says:

    Andruw Jones’ music is the Ray’s broadcast. Probably because he always wanted to be a Ray.

  217. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    just saw Big Poopie trying to steal 2b…now that is funny.

  218. Xstar7 says:

    Nunie should steal third.

  219. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Michael Cuddyer pitched an inning for the Twinkies. SCORELESS.

  220. Cy Pettitte says:

    awww yeah Jeter

  221. Xstar7 says:

    Jeter triple? This game has been chock full of lulz.

  222. MikeD says:

    Old Man Jeter looking more and more like the old Jeter. Keep it up!

  223. 1stbase says:

    jeter got his ops over .700

  224. first time lawng time says:

    Aww Paulie is so sweet.

  225. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Girardi doesn’t trust Garrison in a 10-3 game against the MAriners. Makes perfect sense to me!

  226. Cy Pettitte says:

    STEVE GARRISON!!!!

  227. Esteban says:

    Huzzah!

  228. Xstar7 says:

    Remember how crazy this place was going during the Yankees 6 game losing streak earlier this season? Being a Mariners fan must suck donkey balls right now.

  229. Esteban says:

    Maybe the Yankees won’t lose this series after all. Though they still probably will!!!!one!

  230. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    Youk may be hurt or else the Sox think Yamaico Navarro is a better #4 hitter.

    • mbonzo says:

      It looked like he pulled up short trying to beat out a groundball in his last at bat. Probably a hammy issue.
