Game 76: Warren’s First Time

By

(AP Photo/Kathy Willens)

You only get one Major League debut, and tonight 24-year-old right-hander Adam Warren will make his. He’ll become the first player to make his big league debut as a starting pitcher for the Yankees since Ian Kennedy in 2007, a game I just so happened to have in my 20-game package that summer. That was neat. Anyway, it would be real nice if the offense could push some runs across early to give Warren some breathing room. Here’s the lineup…

SS Derek Jeter
CF Curtis Granderson
1B Mark Teixeira
3B Alex Rodriguez
2B Robinson Cano
RF Nick Swisher
DH Andruw Jones
LF Jayson Nix
Chris Stewart

RHP Adam Warren

Tonight’s game is scheduled to start a little after 7pm ET and can be seen on YES locally and MLB Network nationally. Enjoy.

    OK. How long do we think he’s gonna last?

    • JonS

      He will go 6+, 3R, 2ER, 1WP, 6H, 4K, 3BB.

      • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        hmm…incredibly accurate. You wouldn’t have the lotto numbers for NJ would you?

        • Robinson Tilapia

          22, 25, 3, 6, 34, and 79.

        • Pat D

          Didn’t you give the lotto numbers as 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42?

          Those numbers look awfully suspicious.

          • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

            Those are for California. I have no idea why you’d say they look suspicious…..::summons Smoke Monster::

            • Pat D

              I’ll counter with Godzilla then.

  • Robinson Tilapia

    Here’s to never seeing AAA again, Mr. Warren.

    • LarryM.,Fl.

      That would be amazing if he performed so well that he stayed and pitch through the season, playoffs and ws. OK, I take a good game tonight.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    so I said somethings last night after the lose about Joe G. I just wanted to let him know, it was in the heat of the moment…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....page#t=51s

  • Brian S.

    So the situation with Russ is going to be like it was last year I take it? He’s going to miss two weeks without going on the DL just because?

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Sounds about right.

      • Brian S.

        We need a new catcher.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          I’ve got no problem with a healthy russel martin, but seriously just DL him if he’s hurt and call up Cervelli.

          • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

            Claim Quintero. Then when Russ gets back dump Stewart and make him the backup.

            • Brian S.

              Quintero is racist though.

              • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

                is he? then claim him, trade him to the Red Sox for Shoppach. he’d be perfect with Salty.

  • Brian S.

    The Yankees have the scouting report on Quintana right? Since we created him?

    • Pat D

  • Mike N

    I hope Lou is in the booth again tonight!

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Warren has been pretty unimpressive this year in AAA.

    Let’s hope he can give the Yankees a serviceable 5-6 innings tonight.

  • Jimmy McNulty

    Getting the Knob Creek ready.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      MM, Knob Creek. I prefer Glenlivet, but still damn good whiskey.

      • Mike N

        I just obtained a liter bottle of Bols Corenwijn. I am gonna use it in the sauteed shrimp tacos I am making for my wife for dinner, and definitely have a few chef’s sips.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          dude…stop. I’m eating cold pizza :(

          • Pat D

            I’m having microwave cuisine. Is that any better?

            • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

              Lol, at least it’s hot. I really gotta get a microwave here.

          • jjyank

            I’m eating Cheerios for dinner. Feel better?

            • Pat D

              Chocolate Cheerios exist.

              This makes me sad. Can we please stop making healthy cereals bad and just concentrate on inventing more junk food cereals please?

              You know what’s annoying? Apparently, Count Chocula is only available around Halloween. I went looking for some a few weeks ago and didn’t find any. I was sad.

  • OMG! Bagels!

    I read a lot about him 2 years ago and thought he’d be up sooner based on his pre MLB record and I don’t know what he’s been doing that has kept him toiling in the minor leagues.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Being in the Yankees farm system. It’s really hard to break into the big leagues as a mid-level prospect on this team. Unless your a Phil Hughes, or Joba Chamberlian it’s going to take some injuries and strong performance to get to the big clup.

    • Knoxvillain

      He’s been sucking this year. That’s why it took so long for him to get called up, and only did because of injuries. If nobody got injured, he probably wouldn’t throw a pitch at all this year.

      • Pat D

        Well he just struck out a guy who had 4 hits last night, so clearly he does not suck.

        Get his HOF plaque ready!

        • Knoxvillain

          He is now our number two starter.

          • Mike N

            I give it two more innings before SEND HIM DOWN! FIRE GIRARDI! CASHMAN SUCKS!

  • Pat D

    Bring me the vocal chords of Hawk Harrelson.

  • Mike N

    YEAH! Lou is here!!!!

  • JobaWockeeZ

    How do we know it’s his first time?

    • Mike N

      Because every statement made by him or anyone else with knowledge of the situation has referred to it as his first stint in the majors?

      • JobaWockeeZ

        It was a bad joke.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Getting the plaque ready for Cooperstown right now. It should be ready by the end of the game tonight.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Never mind he walked a guy TO THE BULLPEN!!

  • Dewayne is wise

    Nice start love the hook.

  • jjyank

    Awesome first AB for Warren. Rootin’ hard for ya kid!

  • Dewayne is wise

    Also like the pace he gets it he throws it no bullshit.

    • Mike N

      Got plans for later?

  • RkyMtnYank

    ehhh, that was a nice pitch

  • Pat D

    Yankees don’t seem to want to deal with Dunn.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Wtf nice squeeze ump

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Getting squeezed on some close pitches already. ::Rolls eyes::

    • Pat D

      He has to earn the privilege of getting those pitches called his way.

      • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        please tell me that’s sarcasm making fun of that douche ump?

        • jjyank

          I think it was a reference to when an ump told Martin he had to earn the right to throw the ball back to the pitcher.

        • Pat D

          Naturally.

          • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

            Just making sure lol…there have been some accusations flying around about you =P

  • Brian S.

    Back to back walks are bad.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Ump really squeezing this kid

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Lol, back to back walks…last one on four pitches…and he swings first pitch. I thought it was just our offense that does that.

    • Pat D

      Alex Rios, Consummate Hacker.

  • Mike N

    YEAH!! Warren is the MAN!!!!!!!

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    WAY too many pitches thrown that inning. He’s gonna need to settle down and be more efficient.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Dude, he’s a rookie, in his first major league inning. Cut him some slack.

      • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

        No, this is the Yankee organization. We demand absolute perfection. AND NO FUCKING BEARDS!.

      • jjyank

        This. Dude’s probably got adrenaline through the roof right now, let’s not judge him yet.

        • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

          Not criticizing him. Just saying if he’s gonna go 5, he can’t throw 25 pitches per inning.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Good job ump really fucked with him

  • RkyMtnYank

    got through the first one, kid looks pretty good even getting squeezed a bit!

  • Brian S.

    I wouldn’t want to pitch to Paul Konerko either. Decent inning all things considered.

    • jjyank

      Yeah, or Dunn for that matter either.

  • jjyank

    Good first inning for Warren. Two walks aren’t great, but I give any rookie making his debut a pass on that.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Facing a lefty masher and a borderline future HOF? I completely understand those walks, especially because he was squeezed on i’d say 6 of the 8 pitches.

      • jjyank

        Yup. If he’s gonna walk anyone, it should be Dunn and Konerko.

        • Mike N

          Srsly. Much better that than a few balls down the middle and launched.

  • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

    Pastadivingyoukilis

  • Knoxvillain

    Nice! One last person for Jeter to chase down on the all-time hits list.

  • Mike N

    If that third baseman timed it right, it looked like he could have had it? Or visual illusion?

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    GRANDY!!!!!!!!

  • Mike N

    YEAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!

    Give that kid some runs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Need Pitching

    Wow … really didn’t think that was going out

  • Brian S.

    lol Yankee Stadium

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Wow did that carry. Looked like a routine FB to RF.

    • flamingo

      It’s like a hundred degrees out here, maybe that’s a contributing factor.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Haha, it’s like 95degrees and humid as fuck. In Yankee stadium. Balls are going to FLY tonight. I’d IBB Dunn all night for fear of him hitting one out of the stadium.

      • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

        Him and Konerko too

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          I’m actually less scared of Konerko. He’ll hit a single or a double every so often. If Dunn gets his hands on a ball, especially tonight, it ain’t coming back.

  • flamingo

    GRANDYMAN!!!

  • Jack

    BAMF

  • Mike N

    It seemed like his immediate reaction was “Crap. Fly out.”

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    I dig the 0.67 runs per pitch ratio.

    • Mike N

      NERD ALERT!

  • jjyank

    Grandy!!! Way to pick up the rookie! Love it.

  • Pat D

    Nap Lajoie’s career hit total is 3242, not 3252. And I’m glad that still no one can agree on the pronunciation of his name.

    And another YS3 special for Curtis.

    And another took third strike by Teix.

  • Brian S.

    lol Teix

  • Dewayne is wise

    Love grandy but he will cost at least 25 million a year real soon.

    • Need Pitching

      nowhere near that

    • Knoxvillain

      Nope. He’s too old to get that for an outfielder. 18-22 probably.

    • Brian S.

      Not at his age. Also he’s a corner outfielder playing center.

  • Mike N

    I love bloops!

    • Dewayne is wise

      You spelled boobs wrong.

    • Pat D

      I so want to make a joke here, especially with something I saw earlier tonight, but I won’t because it will lead to bad things.

      • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

        Now you have to do it.

        • Pat D

          Well, it has to do with what Dewayne is wise said, but I’m not going to say who it made me think of.

          • Pat D

            Never mind.

      • Dewayne is wise

        Sorry still thinking about meridiths cans in the pregame.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Cano’s probably thinking “wtf, my rocket get’s caught, and that’s a hit?!”

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Glad to see Quintana get roughed up a little so we don’t have to hear about how stupid the Yankees were for not protecting him

  • flamingo

    YEAH.

  • Cy Pettitte

    sooooo close. I will take the double though.

  • Brian S.

    DRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUW

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Why did they ever let Quintana go?! If Cashman knew what he was doing he would cut Jones!

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      He clearly deserves to be fired for these mistakes.

    • Pat D

      We’re still assembling all the facts on these matters, give us some time.

    • Knoxvillain

      Although he is getting beat up here, it doesn’t look like a good move. At least Axford is sucking ass this year.

      • DERP

        This is probably a really tough time for you. I will be praying for you. God bless.

  • Need Pitching

    embedded Yankee: Jose Quintana

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Andruw with the warning track power.

  • Pat D

    Ha! O’Neill got a little over anxious there.

  • Mike N

    ANDRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUWWWWWWWW!!!

    BTW, I was thinking when I heard that Warren was pitching today, that maybe Girardi was thinking about that last night when he tried to get away with not using his better relievers? Possible?

  • Dewayne is wise

    Whats warren thinking
    Man look at my offense!!!

    • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

      He’s thinking holy shit does the ball fly in the park.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Pretty unlucky inning for Quintana.

    • jjyank

      Grandy’s homer was a YSIII special, but there was a hard hit line out to RF and Andruw smoked that.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        And an easily catchable bloop.

        • jjyank

          And a hard it ball the CF had to make a running catch back on to end the inning. And Jeter’s rocket down the line. Plenty of hard hit balls, don’t act like he’s getting BABIP’d to death.

        • Need Pitching

          how was it easily catchable? There was nobody anywhere near it.
          Also Tex smoked a ball that just went foul by a few feet. Any unluckiness for Quintana was easily cancelled out by the luck.

  • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

    Selfish Yankees spoiling the value of their young pitchers by pounding Quintana.

  • jjyank

    Nice to see Andruw getting his death-to-lefties stroke back!

  • Mike N

    I just hope this kid doesn’t feel complacent with a 4-0 lead and think to himself, “OK. Just throw strikes.”

    • jjyank

      It’s his debut, I’d imagine he just wants to impress as much as possible.

    • Brian S.

      You’re right I want him to nibble at the corners and walk people.

  • Brian S.

    Get Phelps up.

  • Pat D

    Flipped over to ChiSox broadcast. Yep, they’re already acting like they’re winning.

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    This is gonna be a Coors field kind of game.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Hey hey
    None of that shit kid or its back tonscranton bus tour.

    • Pat D

      But no one goes to Scranton this year.

      It’s funny. I saw a news headline yesterday that the inventor of Scantron died. I originally read it as the inventor of Scranton died. And I was like, someone invented that place?

  • Knoxvillain

    Take him out, the game is over. ERA of 9? He sucks!!!

    Should have kept Igawa!

    • jjyank

      Hey, Igawa is the all time wins leader for Scranton. He’s awesome!!

      I kid, I kid.

      • Knoxvillain

        He had more wins than Warren, so I don’t even know why they let Igawa go.

        • jjyank

          Yeah, they should just trade IPK and Melky to get Igawa back.

          • Knoxvillain

            Gotta wait until Joba is back or else whatever team has Igawa won’t do the deal.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Cut him!

  • Dewayne is wise

    Come on kid reach down and grab your nuts and pitch.

  • Will The Thrill

    The White Sox hitters look way too comfortable at the plate. It looks like they’re hunting fastball and seeing the ball well out of Warren’s hand.

  • Greg

    Well, We are very lucky that we didn’t lose any ground last night.

    This is going to be a slugging match, that hopefully we come out on top

  • Pat D

    No lead is safe in YS3.

    • Greg

      No that’s Fenway

      • Pat D

        That’s this park, too.

  • Knoxvillain

    Looks like a very short game for both pitchers tonight.

  • Need Pitching

    jeez, batting practice
    Get Phelps up.

  • Greg

    I think Cashman should be reaching for the phone right now

  • Mike N

    I hope his parents already have a few beers in them.

    • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

      This has got to,be painful for a parent to watch.

  • Karl Krawfid

    Chris Stewart should know better. Too many fastballs in a row.

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    First team to 10 wins tonight.

  • Brian S.

    God dammit.

  • TomH

    Anytime I’m tempted to complain about Yankee broadcasters, I think about ESPN, FOX, and the White Sox and thank God for the broadcaster blessings he has bestowed on the Yankees.

  • Hummingbird S.

    great shutdown inning

    its going to be a long night and not one we’ll enjoy…

    • DERP

      GFY

    • Pat D

      Why, do we lose?

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      1.

      • Tom

        Please stop this… this is almost as bad as the actual trolling and only encourages people.

        Also, not every single negative comment or question of a Girardi move is trolling.

        • jjyank

          But Hummingbird is a troll. So there’s that.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          Hummingbird is among the king of trolls here. He finds shit to bitch about when we’re winning by multiple runs. and here’s a doozey for you, go look at the end of the game thread last night, and see who was one of the first to call out Girardi for fucking up (Hint: It was me.)

    • jjyank

      For the love of Mo, haven’t we learned not to declare the game over in the second inning by now? Get outta here.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Grooved meatballs do not work up here

  • Kramerica Industries

    So this is life without C.C. or Pettitte.

  • Pat D

    Wow, the ChiSox broadcast had their strikezone up. They had exactly none of the pitches to Beckham being over the plate.

  • TommyBoy

    Warren is not that good. 5-5 3.86era and more hits than innings pitched in the minors! He blows!

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      2.

      • Greg

        What are you counting today

        • jjyank

          Trolls, I’d wager.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          Trolls, already. TommyBoy has never once said anything productive, positive, or a critic that could be argued in anyway.

          • Pat D

            If I am counted tonight, I will go Les Grossman on this entire board.

      • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

        I don’t get it.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Is phelps up yet

  • Knoxvillain

    If I hear that fucking “baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet” commercial one more time, I am going to have a heart attack.

    • Mike N

      Where are you watching? I’m not hearing that on YES.

      • Knoxvillain

        I was checking up on MLB Network and the commercial played again.

    • Pat D

      You forgot “hot dogs.”

      But, yea, that’s one of many commercials that make me want to kill myself right now.

      • Knoxvillain

        So damn annoying.

  • Mike N

    If it’s gonna be a slugfest and battle of the bullpens, I like the Yanks’ odds.

  • flamingo

    Hopefully we put on a better hitting clinic than they do in this one.

  • Pat D

    Those are boos for the Cro-Magnon and not “Youk” chants, right?

    • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

      Why would they be Youk chants?

      • Pat D

        Because people are fucking stupid.

        Giants fans would always chant “Moose” for Daryl Johnston, and it annoyed me to no fucking end.

        • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

          That’s because when the Giants play Dallas, 20% of the fans are Cowboys fans at least.

    • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

      Definitely Boos

  • dontchaknow

    I don’t wanna say phelpsy.. but…. phelpsy

  • Dewayne is wise

    Ok so who were those teams that were calling cash for Warren?

    • Pat D

      They all stopped calling.

  • First time lawng time

    Wow. This pitcher sucks.

    Also, why did David Robertson not start the ninth inning last night?

    • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

      That was a Burnettian inning.

    • Greg

      Didn’t you watch the WB Mason postgame show, only on YES!?

    • Pat D

      We discussed that last night. Girardi gave a terrible excuse, and the consensus seems to be he was trying to avoid using DRob and Soriano, just because.

      • First time lawng time

        Oh. Thankyou. The only part of the postgame I saw was Robertson’s interview, and he seemed pretty pissed that he didn’t start the inning.

        • Pat D

          So was Mrs. DRob, evidently.

    • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

      Because his wife prefers the excitement of bringing him in with runners on base.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    “If the ball is hit to A-Rod, he’ll go home with it, Ground ball to third Alex throws to first, the run scores.” John Sterling, wrong but not missing a beat.

    • jjyank

      Heh. Going home would have been a mistake. It’s early in the game, get the out.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

        Yeah really, the kid can’t buy an out. Take it.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          I just found it funny how much he just stated it as a fact, but then with out acting like he was wrong in the same breath and kept going.

  • DERP

    Okay hopefully he can settle down.

  • TommyBoy

    And Joe will wait for Warren to give up another 4 runs before he takes him out.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Is he over 50 pitches yet?

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      I’d say roughly 55.

  • Brian S.

    Pitching to the score. You’re doing it wrong.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Can we make deal with oakland and get Colon back?

    • Greg

      That’s a good idea. Colon’s on the DL.

    • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

      He’s on the DL.

      • Dewayne is wise

        Ok whats javey vasquez doing these days?

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    I thought we were done with the NL, having the pitchers lead of the inning :D

  • Brian S.

    lol Stewart

  • RkyMtnYank

    awesome bunt

  • Brian S.

    CHRIS STEWART DID SOMETHING! TAKE THAT MIKE AXISA!

    -Greg

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Does that mean you’d rather have Jorge Posada?

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      So much momentum. Sign Trevor Plouffe and *insert comment complaining about ESPN*.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Stewie makes the toxic avenger look bad
    Well done!

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Chris Stewart sucks.

    • Greg

      That’s on Jeter. He waved him to go.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

        Keep making excuses. God forbid we ask Stewart to have an original thought on the bases.

        • Greg

          So you are going to say no to Derek Jeter. Good luck with that.

          • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

            Yes. I would like players to say no to Jeter and be right than say yes to him and be wrong.

          • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

            Because Jeter is totally gonna rip Stewart in the dugout for not going on that.

        • Pat D

          Technically, isn’t “The ball didn’t get that far away from him but I’ll go anyway” an original thought?

        • Greg

          If Jeter hadn’t waved him over, I would be with you. That was stupid

      • Pat D

        I thought he signaled “Hold up!” myself.

        • Greg

          First blush, I thought he waved him over

  • Hummingbird S.

    what a fucking dumbass

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Stewart is such a dumbass.

  • Mike N

    If Ripken had any balls, he’d have been all like, “Jeter’s a punk, and the next time I see him, I’m gonna deck him for passing me.”

  • Need Pitching

    ugghhh

    free outs, get your free outs here

  • Greg

    Jeter waved him to go

  • Dewayne is wise

    He taged his package lol

  • TommyBoy

    Stewart can’t do anything right!

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    …why in christ’s fucking sake is our back up catcher stealing bases. I hope Girardi is letting him have it in the dug out. I know he’s not though. You as a catcher know better than anybody your pitcher needs to catch his breath, and you just give away an out.

    • Greg

      I blame Jeter. He waved for him to go. You dont say no to Derek Jeter

      • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

        i loled

      • jjyank

        Of course not, you want the gift basket the next morning :P

  • Brian S.

    Please get off my team Stewart.

  • Will The Thrill

    Argh. This is already turning out to be a yucky series. Worst since the Anaheim series a couple of weeks ago…

  • eephus_pitch

    Stewart ran to save Jeter the indignity of GIDP.

    PREDETERMINED OUTCOME

  • Pat D

    Yea, I rewound the game and Jeter clearly signaled “Hold up!” because as soon as he saw Stewart going, he looked down and frowned.

    • Erica

      Yeah, Jeter stuck his hand out to tell him to stay. Womp womp.

    • Greg

      Alright. Stewart was an idiot. Still the same defensive and offensive value as Cervelli.

      • Need Pitching

        Cervelli’s clearly better offensively

      • Erica

        Watch it. Frankie is a legend!

  • Erica

    Meep.

    • jjyank

      What noise is that?

      • Erica

        Just a general weird noise expressing my feelings about this game. I’m almost entertained, in a weird way, because it’s not going to be a boring game in the LEAST. It’s already wacked out.

  • Hummingbird S.

    how many times this season have we seem the Yankees score 2+ in the first and get shut down the rest of the way? It has this feeling to it..

    • Need Pitching

      based on one inning??

      an inning led off by Chris Stewart??

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

        And Stewart reached base!

    • Evan3457

      That would be exactly…once.

  • Need Pitching

    Phelps please

  • Mike N

    Oy.

  • dontchaknow

    phelpsy

  • Greg

    I blame Lou. We are 0-4 in games that he has called. And we ould be 0-5

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    First pitch, slider. Right down broadway. fuck man…

  • Dewayne is wise

    Right down main street.

  • Hummingbird S.

    btw, this Warren kid sucks.. so much for the vaunted pitching depth

    • Erica

      He doesn’t suck.

      • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        He clearly sucks Erica. Everybody knows you can make definitive statements about pitchers 2 innings into their major league career.

        • Erica

          I want to see Hummingbird S. become Brian Cashman for a day.

          • jjyank

            I sure as hell don’t.

          • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

            A-Rod would be cut, the minors would be gutted for Cliff Lee, Cargo, King Felix, and one other guy. We’d be good for like 3 years and be terrible for the next decade.

            • Erica

              Jim Thome as our centerfielder?

              • RBC

                He doesn’t have any speed left.

    • Knoxvillain

      Depth does not equal quality.

    • jjyank

      Yes, based on less than 3 MLB career innings, we can say that he sucks and we have no depth.

      Nobody ever said Warren was a top prospect, but he still provides good depth, even with this start.

  • First time lawng time

    Anyone have any idea as to why my google is in Japanese?

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      your on japanese google? mine’s fine.

    • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

      I think it’s part of Obamacare.

      • Pat D

        Let’s not go there.

      • Jeff

        Sucks for you that it doesn’t cover ignorance.

  • Brian S.

    Warren sucks.

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    At least Konerko is on my fantasy team.

  • Will The Thrill

    Warren not giving us a chance at all. Wow does he suck. Straight fastball and offspeed stuff with no bite.

  • Erica

    Am I the only who doesn’t think that Adam Warren sucks? It’s his goddamn first Major League outing. Stop expecting perfection with the first pitch. We have to make do with what we have for the moment.

    • Knoxvillain

      He doesn’t suck, but he’s not a major league quality starter. He is up for a couple of starts at the most probably. He isn’t going to come in and look like Sabathia.

      • Erica

        Right! It’s not a long-term solution. And I think a lot of people are expecting Sabathian-like pitching, or whatever.

        That’s not going to happen.

        • Knoxvillain

          Nope. You get what you pay for.

    • flamingo

      He’s probably really nervous. Everyone wants Phelps in – Phelps has given up runs, too. They’re rookies/back-end starters; it’s par for the course.

      • Erica

        Right! Remember your first day at your first real job? Weren’t you nervous? (“You” is a generalization in this instance.)

    • Mike N

      He does suck right now, but it is certainly not his fault that he is in over his head.

    • First time lawng time

      We’re (or at least I’m) not expecting perfection. However, I am also not expecting 6 runs in 2+ innings and an almost laughable inability to make an out.

  • Knoxvillain

    Warren’s last inning I’d assume. Sucks for the parents to see their kid stink up the ballpark and watch him get booed if he doesn’t finish the inning.

  • Kramerica Industries

    Adam Warren is not long for this game.

  • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

    ^^^ please

  • flamingo

    He’s over 60 pitches already, too. Ouch.

  • TommyBoy

    Who’s dumbass idea was it to bring this clown up?!

  • Mike N

    The fans at the stadium better give the kid a hand when he leaves the mound. If they boo, I’m gonna be pissed.

  • Greg

    Okay Brian, the internal options did not work. NOW GO MAKE A TRADE.

    • Erica

      Hayyyy, it’s Negative Nate!

  • dontchaknow

    cool

  • Need Pitching

    Chris Stewart is so fucking awful

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Chris Stewart, just go home.

  • Pat D

    This isn’t looking good for Mr. Warren.

    Now I’m not trolling here, but I did hear them say “If this was September, CC wouldn’t have gone on the DL.” Anyone think they’re reconsidering that?

    Oh my god, Stewart.

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      They shouldn’t reconsider anything regarding CC. It’s not even the All Star break, let the big man get healthy.

      If they’re going to reconsider anything it would be Adam Warren. This kid is awful.

  • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

    Claim Quintero please.

  • RkyMtnYank

    Looking forward to Phelps, hopefully he gets enough work for the next start!

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Could Stewart possibly be any worse?

    • Dewayne is wise

      Somewhere in the great state of NY blue eye sheds a tear.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Another great play by Chris Stewart.

    • Tom

      That was Warren’s fault apparently he made some motion to throw the ball away… Stewart was just listening to his teammate.

      – Greg

      • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

        lmao

    • jjyank

      Seriously. I thought he was supposed to be good defensively? At least that’s what I read when the trade went down. What the hell happened?

  • Greg

    Alright, now I’m getting pissed at Stewart.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Jeter just waved him to throw it into CF.

      • Need Pitching

        lmao

  • Pat D

    Pierzynski with an infield hit? Oh, that’s not a good sign.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Warren is bound for the Bus, have fun on tour kid,see ya next year in a relief role.

  • wow

    What a joke.

  • Hummingbird S.

    what is Girardi waiting for? this kid sucks.. straight pitches down the middle do not work in the majors

  • flamingo

    Okay, I want this guy off our roster. I can’t imagine Cervelli would be worse. And I don’t like Cervelli.

  • Pat D

    Hopefully I won’t miss much as I take the dog for a quick walk.

  • Chris

    He sucks…right now…

  • Kramerica Industries

    Geeze – I’m gonna need to find something else to do tonight if this is gonna continue.

    I mean, Chicago’s a good team and everything, but the last four innings the past two nights have been a nightmare. Adam Warren is not long for this rotation, unfortunately, and Chris Stewart has been unbearably atrocious.

  • Will The Thrill

    I don’t care if this Warren’s first start the kid isn’t fooling anyone with with that meatball fastball and flat offspeed pitches.

  • Chris

    I feel bad for him a bit. He must have zero confidence right now.

  • Greg

    GO MAKE A TRADE BRIAN.

    Otherwise I might think about killing myself, metaphorically.

    I try to be positive, and look what happens.

    • Erica

      I’m really perplexed by your constant negativity. Are you negative about other things in your life, or only the Yankees?

      • Greg

        Basically I need the Yankees to win to help feel good about myself and my choices. I know it seems extreme, but I’m without a job, I just got my masters degree and I;m doing some volunteer work to get experience. In terms of “American Dreams” I;m not doing to well right now.

        • Pat D

          I got laid off last week, but I’m determined to not live and die by sports anymore.

        • Erica

          The Yankees aren’t something you can control and you shouldn’t let it dictate your happiness.

          • Greg

            Easier said then done

  • Will The Thrill

    I can’t believe we gave up Kontos for Stewart aka Cervelli 2.0

  • TommyBoy

    And Chris Stewart is trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons.

    • flamingo

      Yankee fans mad.

      • Brian S.

        He sucks! No excuse for him to be on this team.

  • Mike N

    Yanks scored four runs in one inning. I am not giving up on this game.

  • James A

    Its weird when you’re wishing we still had AJ the rollercoaster in town

    • flamingo

      …I’m not there yet. In fact, I’ll never be.

      • jjyank

        Neither will I. If AJ wasn’t having a decent year in a terrible division in the lesser of the two leagues, would anyone miss him? I fully believe that AJ in the AL East would still be terrible.

    • Will The Thrill

      I don’t and will never miss AJ. He couldn’t survive in the AL anymore.

    • Erica

      …I’m so sorry for your wishes.

  • Dewayne is wise

    One more hit and warrens parents are getting a beer bath.

  • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

    It’s a shame Cashman passed on all the calls he said he had for this guy, this isn’t going to help his stock…

    • Crime Dog

      I don’t think there is literally one GM in baseball who says “Oh man, he had one bad start against a good team in the Majors. Nevermind, don’t want him”

    • jjyank

      No, but I doubt it hurts his stock either. GMs are smart enough to not base a decision on one MLB start.

  • New Balance Cleats

    Damn when I left he just gave up a homer to AJ….what happened?!

    • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

      He gave up hits.. to practically everybody.

  • Cy Pettitte

    this is 2011 Hughes-esque

  • Chris

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Erica

    Please don’t boo please don’t boo

    • First time lawng time

      That I can agree with. Yeah, he did a crappy job, but he’s young and it was his first start.

      • Erica

        Exactly. If I made a mistake on the first day of a new job, I shouldn’t be yelled at. It’s demoralizing. He’s clearly got talent and he needs our support.

        I hate when people, especially here, are so harsh on young pitchers. Hate it. NOBODY is perfect out of the gate and it really bothers me when perfection is expected right away.

  • Chris

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Tom

    Isn’t it fairly obvious that you bring Phelps in, continue stretching him out and he takes the next turn in the rotation?

    What is Girardi waiting for? Heck even if Girardi turns a blind eye to effectiveness the guy has thrown nearlyu 80 damn pitches and he’s still in the 3rd.

  • Kramerica Industries

    And with that, Warren is gone.

    Well, lets see if Phelps can reclaim that rotation spot now. For all of, well, one start.

  • First time lawng time

    I’m sorry, but does anybody actually watch Tyler Perry’s House of Payne? It’s on TBS right now and, in all honesty, I don’t undersand why they can’t put on Big Bang Theory or Family Guy, which are on on Mon-Thurs and Sat at 8. This Tyler Perry show seems stupid and isn’t even funny.
    Ugh. I guess I’m stuck clicking between this Yankee game and Say Yes to the Dress.

    • TomH

      If the game goes sour, read a book. Those TV shows cause mind rot.

      • TomH

  • Mike N

    OK. I didn’t hear boos of the kid, so I am not gonna have to get angry.

  • Greg

    He just took him out

  • Brian S.

    Yeah don’t give him another start. We can’t give away any more games.

    • DERP

      Please stop posting.

      • Brian S.

        Naw.

    • Will The Thrill

      Seriously. He didn’t even give us a chance.

    • Erica

      HOLD ON.

      Did you change baseball?

      Games only go for three innings? THREE? No. Effin’. Way. Everything I know about life is a lie.

    • jjyank

      You know they have a 5 game lead in the division right? And you know that Phelps is just as capable as exploding in a start as Warren is, right? So Warren can never get another start because he had a bad one in his debut?

  • Dewayne is wise

    Done
    See ya.

  • TampaYankee

    I wanted Phelps instead, not that we had a choice, but looks like he handled it better. So far Warren isn’t having a good game, I’m not writing him off entirely though. Just liked our chances with Phelps better after what he showed his last time up. Didn’t like how it worked out with stretching him out and not being ready.

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    oh no. Was he crying?

    • Erica

      I’m not sure, but Rapada definitely looked like he was yesterday. Eek.

      • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

        I know, right?!

  • cjc

    one of the worst performances I can ever remember

    • Will The Thrill

      Nope AJ vs. Arizona Diamondbacks was worse.

      • New Balance Cleats

        Nah that was ONLY 7 runs in 4 IP

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    76 pitches to get 7 outs with 6 earned runs and 8 hits. It doesn’t get mch worse than that.

    The White Sox should have at least bought Warren dinner before they did that to him.

  • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

    My God, that pitching line hurt my eyes!!

  • TomH

    With Phelps,we’re beginning to regress to April. I hope tonight isn’t the start of an infection of bad pitching. Even for old pros,the double whammy–CC and Pettitte–must have been demoralizing.

  • RkyMtnYank

    Phelps just looks so much sharper already

  • Mike N

    Can we get some stats on current decent MLB pitchers who stunk like shit in their first MLB start?

    • Greg

      I know Roy Halladay pitched an almost no hitter in his first MLB start

  • TommyBoy

    That’s how you pitch Warren!

  • Greg

    Its hard to think that Casey Kotchman destroyed the 2012 Yankee season. But its getting that feeling to it

    • Erica

      ………………….

      • Greg

        It has that mood to me. The reality is not true but the mood is.

        • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

          Kotchman did not do anything to CC.

          this is CC’s spot.

          • Need Pitching

            though technically, if not for Kotchman, Freddy would have started today – for better or worse

    • New Balance Cleats

      Nope.

  • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

    If the Yankees make a trade right now I’d want it to be for a better backup catcher and that’s it. Let’s see what Freddy and Phelps do before pushing the panic button.

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    Poor kid.

    How come that only happens to Yankees in their MLB debut when they start?

  • New Balance Cleats

    And just like that goes the trade appeal

  • DERP

    You stupid fucking idiots make it seem like we are down ten runs.

    WE ARE DOWN TWO FUCKING RUNS!

    • Mike N

      +1

    • Erica

      +2

  • flamingo

    NICE job by Phelps. I’m watching on Gameday – does he have that two-seamer working?

    • New Balance Cleats

      Its nasty

  • First time lawng time

    Whatevs I’m already over it.

    It’s only a 2 run deficit and bottom of the third. It’s still a winnable game.

  • Mike N

    Does the kid have to sit alone in the dugout like a goddamn leper for the rest of the game? If the Yanks take the lead, is he allowed to high-five anyone?

    • bobtaco

      Yes, Rapada.

    • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

      I think it would be pretty cool if Phelps kept side’s spirit up. Warren should listen in on game-plan between innings with Stewart/Phelps.

      Hopefully kid doesn’t go IPK and become a little wimp.

    I hope he gets one more chance. Not sure he will though.

  • Will The Thrill

    Horrible ABs by Tex and Arod.

  • TampaYankee

    Was there no way we could have made it so Phelps got the start instead? This sucks, wasn’t Phelps starting before he got sent down? I don’t know why Warren got the start. Maybe I missed something, hope I’m not coming off ignorant, just confused and now annoyed after this game. Again, not saying Warren is the worst and should never pitch again. Just was wanting Phelps starting.

    • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

      I think Phelps wasn’t fully stretched out after spend so much time as a reliever.

    • Crime Dog

      Yeah, you missed something. Phelps was only stretched out to throw 70 pitches in his next scheduled start (Saturday).

    • Will The Thrill

      Yeah this was the wrong time to put a rookie starter out there. September is the time for these kind of things but not while you’re smack dab in the middle of a season/pennant race.

      • Need Pitching

        Isn’t September a more crucial part of the season/pennant race?

        • jjyank

          Ha yeah really. End of June and a 5 game lead in the division sounds better to me than September with a potential Rays/Sox surge.

    • jjyank

      If Warren was good, would you be saying that? I think the Yankees thought it was a good opportunity to see what he had. It didn’t work out, but that doesn’t mean it was the wrong decision at the time.

      • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

        I think if Phelps was stretched out then they would give him this start because he made a few starts earlier and was perfectly serviceable.

        • jjyank

          RIght but he wasn’t, and Warren lined up perfectly for tonight. I really can’t faul the decision to give him a look. Hindsight is hindsight, but I don’t blame the initial decision at all.

          • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

            I know…I said IF he was stretched out. I liked giving Warren a shot over Ramon Ortiz or someone, and I thought he would do much better than he did.

  • jjyank

    Figured I’d post this down here so he can see it:

    Greg,

    I feel ya man. I got a Masters as well and couldn’t get what I wanted to do. I’m a damn bank teller, despite an MA in International Relations and a passable ability to speak Arabic. Couldn’t get a single government job despite upwards of 300 applications. So I moved to DC anyway and settled on this bullshit job for the time being. But out of the blue, I got a call from two agencies that want to move forward with applications I put in back in March. One was the TSA, and the other I’m not allowed to disclose. Seriously.

    My point is that good things will happen, you just gotta try hard and be patient. Likewise with baseball.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      My guess is the NSA. I know you can’t tell me if I’m right or wrong, but I know the NSA is a lot more far reaching than the CIA can ever dream to be and almost nobody gives them a second look. They prefer it that way, I’m sure.

      • jjyank

        You’re right, I can’t say, but I can say that’s not an entirely accurate statement.

            No, no. First of all I’m still just an applicant, and second of all I’m not going to bea field officer. I’m going for Intel Analyst. As far as I know, I can post the job title, since literall all 16 members of the Intelligence Community have that title, I’m not really narrowing it down :P

            But no guns or fear of death for me.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          Lol, come on. Anybody who knows anything about government knows the NSA is secretive as shit and does a lot more than they say.

          • jjyank

            And so does the CIA. Their more well known because they’ve been around for like 60 years, but trust me, some shaaaady stuff happens there too. I’ve been lucky enough to tour the CIA, NSA, and ODNI facilities. CIA has them all beat, by a large margin.

            • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

              I know it does lol, I don’t trust the intelligence community as a whole, they’re all shady fucks (no offense to you personally)

              • jjyank

                Of course. You can’t be a very good intelligence agency if you’re not secretive. Intel and covert work does not go hand in hand with transparency and democracy. Just doesn’t work.

                You should see those war rooms though man. Giant, auditorium sized rooms, with 70” flat screens covering all the walls with every single news network on the planet on each one, every single desk had 3 monitors. Really impressive. Just to add to the ambiance, it’s all very dimly lit and has black furniture. Almost eerie.

                • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

                  Bahaha…I can see it in my head, I’ve wanted to go into the Intelligence Community just to be part of that, but I hate government inner workings to begin with on the outside…I don’t think I’d like it any more seeing all the dirty laundry.

                  • jjyank

                    Also, the CIA has a museum in one of its hallways, and it includes a James Bond-esque exploding pen from the Cold War.

                    There’s dirty laundry every where you go though. Every job I’ve ever had as featured corruption, greediness, or just breaking protocol in some way. Might as well have a BAMF job title in the process.

                Not my field. But yes, I can make well over six figures a year as an intel analyst.

    • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

      He has the Red Sox tag. If Wakefield attempted a comeback those same people would say he’d be as good as Pettitte was.

    • Crime Dog

      He isnt terrible really. He’s an upgrade over what they had at 3B, and they didn’t give up much for him. He’s still got good BB rates and will probably wind up with a halfway decent slash line.

  • Will The Thrill

    Phelps > Warren

    With that being said Cash please trade for a starter.

    • jjyank

      Who? The Yanks don’t really have the pieces for a huge splash, Dempster’s on the DL, Wandy has that dumb contract, and lesser guys probably aren’t even an upgrade.

      • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

        Dempseter should be back after the ASB. I would like to see Freddy and Phelps can offer before thinking seriously about at trade though.

        • jjyank

          Theo will demand a king’s ransom for Dempster anyway. I don’t think he’d be worth the price.

      That does not make him a “Hall of Famer.”

  • Tom

    While I’m glad that Girardi didn’t call for a bunt there…. I almost wish he had.

    • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

      Jeter should have told him to bunt.

      • Tom

        Nicely played!

  • Will The Thrill

    Um. Martin and Stewart have been equally terrible this year. We need a catcher who isn’t an embarrassment at the plate.

    • Get Phelps Up (formerly Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat)

      Martin is much better at the plate than Stewart…and he’s worlds better on defense.

      • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        They’re both just ‘blegh’ though.

        • Crime Dog

          Russ is like “Bleh”, whereas Stewart is like “HOLYSHITBLEHFUCKINGBLEH”

        • Will The Thrill

          My thoughts exactly. I’d kill for a catcher who can play solid D can hit at least .250 and hit for some power.

          Uh. I just described Gary Sanchez didn’t I?

          • Crime Dog

            Yeah bring Sanchez all the way to the majors. Great solution.

            • Will The Thrill

              That’s not what I mean dude. I meant that Gary Sanchez possesses all the tools we desire in a Yankee catcher.

              • Crime Dog

                Yeah, I’m cool with that. Sorry, I can’t read tonight.

                I love the prospects of, well, prospects as well. But with Sanchez’s ETA not being till late 2014 ish, we gotta find a solid guy. Whether that’s Russ, or whoever else. Also, obviously Sanchez is no sure thing.

              • jjyank

                Yeah, he does. But he’s a looooong way from the majors. I’m hoping the Yanks can resign Martin for a deal that coincides with Sanchez’s ETA. He’s as good a stopgap as any, assuming he doesn’t price himself out of that.

              • Need Pitching

                not sure about the solid D yet, but hopefully he can figure that part out

    • Crime Dog

      Equally terrible in what regard? Batting Average, yeah.
      Martin: .197/.317/.374
      Stewart: .261/.278/.304

      So yea, I’ll take Martin. Plus, Martin has been playing below his skill level it would seem, whereas Stewart might actually be worse than his slash line indicates.

      • Need Pitching

        This.
        Martin hasn’t been good offensively, but Stewart is an all around disaster.

  • Tom

    Decent job by Phelps to hold down the fort.

    Don’t like the 2 out, noone on base walk (especially when you start 0-2), but Dunn can at least go yard so it’s not like you just say “let him hit his way on base”

    • jjyank

      No, it’s not crap. One MLB debut by Warren does not change that.

    • Rich

      First our depth is not crap. Phelps pitched very well in a mop up role. Second, name me a team that would have depth after losing their: closer, 7th inning reliever, ace and number 2 starter, plus a number 3 starter earlier in the season. Not even America’s next dynasty, the Rangers, has that much depth.

  • Dewayne is wise

    Stewie kills martin in luck factor.

  • Joe Girardi

    Please god dont let Wade suck again.

  • Tom

    So other than the Girardi first impression factor (it takes a LONG time to overcome the first impression Girardi gets on a player), why is Stewart on the team?

    To carry a .600 or below OPS bat, this guy needs to be Johnny Bench/Yadier Miolina/Ivan ROIDriquez behind the plate and he is clearly not. I know he looked good early on (again Girardi first impression factor), but how bad does he have to be to move on from this guy?

      …. as you strike out….

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Just read through the thread from when I left work till the end…Really Athenian? our depth has failed after a pitcher major league debut. Jeez I hope you aren’t in a position of authority wherever you work that involves making decisions based on more than knee jerk reactions…also I did say the game was going to end with a football score. Sigh, still got the ninth at least.

  • Dewayne is Wise

    Jesus they have some hard throwers in their pen

  • Mr. Pink

    Argh. Grandy. A love/hate relationship. I love your homeruns but I hate your inability to hit for average and alarming number of strikeouts.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Cory Wade…he may suck, but he’s really taking one for the team. Coming up on 50 pitches.

    • Dewayne is Wise

      Maybe he throws his arm out.

      • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        Dude don’t even…we have way too many injured pitchers as it is. We need all the healthy arms we can get. Whether they’re shitty or not.

  • Bubba

    Re-pumpkined

  • Karl Krawfid

    Joe G just doesn’t give a fuck does he?

    50 pitches really?

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      About Wade? At this point? Zero fucks given.

      • Karl Krawfid

        I mean he didn’t think his team could come back from 3 runs?

  • Dewayne is Wise

    Fuck it put swisher on the mound

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Wade is approaching a Proctor level of futility out there today.

  • your mom

    Wade’s last hurrah?

  • Tom

    I know we are in Girardi give up time, but why not give Igarashi (he is on the roster no?) an inning?

    • Need Pitching

      he’s not on the roster, Phelps took his place

      • Tom

        Ahhh… thanks… though it seems like he may soon be :-)

    • your mom

      not anymore.

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Way to pussy out Martin.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    WTF ARE YOU DOING THERE MARTIN?! BLOCK THE PLATE A LITTLE BIT! AT LEAST WITH THE GLOVE!!!

    • Tom

      Are you guys serious? In a 5 run game?

      With the prospect of Chris “starting catcher” Stewart, Martin should be nowhere near the plate…

        Joe’s new LOOGY

      • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        I’m just saying If he puts his glove on the ground the runner slides right into it and he’s out. Instead he leaves the plate wide open. and goes for the chest tag, that only works if your on the third base side of the plate.

  • Dewayne is Wise

    There just streaching him out.

  • your mom

    Sox padding their stats.

    This is getting really ugly.

    • Erica

      It’s almost like, let’s just see how far we can sink tonight.

      • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        yeah…it’s been bad.

        • Erica

          I prefer to lose this way, rather than a game like last night’s.

          • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

            Yeah, last night was a heart breaker and head scratcher…tonight was just we got beat.

  • Rich

    This is why Girardi is a good manager (and I was ripping him too after yesterday’s debacle). Wade is in a horrible slump, when (if?) Joba comes back, he is glorified mop-up man anyways, he should take one for the team. Tomorrow, we have Kuroda, and our main bullpen guys (Logan, Soriano, Robertson) will be rested. Sometimes, you lose the battle to win the war.

    • your mom

      With our luck Joba and Aardsma aren’t returning this season.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      agreed…but I think throwing in the towel when the lead was only 3 was a little overboard.

      • your mom

        Agreed.

      • Need Pitching

        not much left in the pen that would be worth wasting already down 3 though. Maybe Eppley, but it would be his third straight game and probably make him unavailable tomorrow.

        • Tom

          Eppley being not available tomorrow is not exactly a disaster.

          The thing about keeping it a 3 run game (or at least trying to), means Venutura probably roles out his closer in the 9th (which makes him unavailable tomorrow)… seems like a good tradeoff.

          Instead some schmo named Septimo soaks up the inning.

          • Tom

            *rolls*

  • captain kiwi

    oh this is just getting silly now.

  • Chris Stewart

    Why not put a position player on the mound? Don’t waste Eppley in a lost game.

    • your mom

      You got your wish, Wise move.

    • Chris Stewart

      Kay decieved me.

      • Pat D

        He’s done that to a lot of people.

  • Dewayne is Wise

    Wow george is rolling in his grave right now.

  • eephus_pitch

    I love Curtis Granderson, but watching him flail at the curveball in the dirt can be maddening.

  • Pat D

    I think I need to stop letting my mother use my laptop for extended periods of time. Seems lately that whenever she does, everything falls apart.

    So, everyone can blame this one on me.

    • your mom

      Buy your mother her own laptop damn it.

      • Pat D

        I’m currently unemployed, and I’m not going to use my severance money on anything frivolous.

    45 is throwing an inning as a Yankee.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Wise as the new set up guy!!!!

  • DM

    I smell a roster move or two tomorrow.

    • your mom

      Igarashi will be recalled. But at this point, can Betances do any worse??? Just kidding.

      • DM

        I don’t think he can be recalled unless it’s for an injury. 10 days I thought.

        • Need Pitching

          True, but Wade (or Warren) may conveniently come down with a case of mysteryinjuryitis.

          • DM

            You may only need one move. Wade down, Mitchell up. Give Warren another crack on Wed while knowing you have the off-day on Thurs, you can use the bullpen liberally if need be.

    • mt

      Maybe Warren down but would they send Wade down too – he is now useless for a couple of days, I would think.

      Not only is he giving up home runs at an alarming rate but his pitches look like they are just bgeachballs going to plate – he does not have lights out stuff so when he is off I guess he turns into a batting practice pitcher

      • DM

        I think Wade might be optioned. Both multi-inning guys are used up in Phelps and Wade. Maybe Mitchell will replace him.

  • RBC

    DeWayne for President

  • Cy Pettitte

    Wise for #5 starter

  • mt

    Wise to the sixth!

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (former Manny’s BanWagon)

    Wade should be ashamed after watching Wise get out of the inning with ease.

  • Mr. Pink

    Dwayne Wise made me feel better about this loss.

    Bears top the Giants 14-7

  • OMG! Bagels!

    Just got home and heard the recap on My9 14-7…REALLY?

    • your mom

      Yes, really.

  • Tom Q

    So, for those who love Pitching Wins as a stat, tonight offers our winner, Quintana, who gave up a stellar six runs in six innings, and our loser, Phelps, for one solo home run.

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Phelps takes the loss? That’s kind of rough.

    • Rich

      Couldn’t agree more. I was just going to write the same exact thing and how Wins (along with Batting Average) are the most overrated stats in baseball. How did Quintana get the W for getting rocked for 6 innings and Phelps who helped make it a game get the loss for giving up two runs. Stupid. The official scorer should have some discretion, especially for giving losses, even if the starter pitches 5 or more innings. A 9.00 ERA in a game deserves a win? Just like 6 innings, 3 ER or less (4.50 ERA or less) is a quality start? Dumb (off my soapbox)

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Well…that was a tough loss. I’m going to go get high and forget about it.

  • your mom

    Well, horrible pitching performances all around. Hope this isn’t the start of a trend with CC and Pettitte shelved. Better luck tomorow.

    Need to get this off my chest………….Fuck the White Sox!

  • eephus_pitch

    If there’s a worse way to lose than surrendering two homers to the biggest scumbag in baseball, I’d like to hear it.

  • stuart a

    only saw part of the game. did not see Cano’s great baserunning play.

    good news is arod is still smoking the ball and may get to 80 rbi’s if he gets real hot.

    wade is fooling no one….lucky binder boy did not want to use robertson to start the 9th last night…..
