New thread for luck.
ok, two observations.
1. WHY IS PHELPS OUT? REALLY?
2. Pretty sure I saw CC in the dugout and he was taking a phone call lol… Whatever gets you through the suckfest, I suppose.
At least he didn’t have no beer and chicken.
Let’s beat these fuckers.
I declare this situation bullshit.
Back to the spillover days.
LNOGY’s really coming through tonight
Rapada blows. Half this team blows.
Just call up Juan Cedeno. These stupid idiots can’t do their fucking job.
Phelps could’ve done that. Michael Phelps too for that matter.
QUALLS ARE YOU KIDDING ME HERE JOE
It’s crazy how much crap there is on this team.
The whole bullpen is starting to come back down to earth.
And so are the Yankees.
Fuck you Brian Cashman.
Sure hope you enjoy every win from here on out. You’ve earned it with all these hardships you’ve endured.
so much hate …..
On fire with the taunts. Not being sarcastic I mean it.
I’m sorry. I apologize. I was emotional.
Every move he’s made, except Kontos, has been great. He ain’t the problem.
here comes the gasoline. Nice work from the once good pen tonight. This team straight sucks right now
Things are so depressing right now that our LOOGYs can’t even do their damn job.
Qualls? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING?
…chad qualls? did Epply die?
How is Chad Qualls still on this team?
You can’t convince me that Wade or Igarishi or someone couldn’t do a better job than this loser.
Joe just cannot help himself with Qualls. He loves to bring into 1-run deficits.
Oh this isn’t going to go well.
Swisher to 1st
Cervelli called up for backup
Yeah that how joe wants it.
so much catcherz!!!!!
Chad Qualls in a one run game.
What’s the matter? It’s what you do in September.
…Did Chad Qualls just warm up to One Direction?
Will Qualls stay in to face Chris Davis?
Cano isn’t having a good day throwing to first is he?
another decade of those throws!!!
Raise your hand if you thought that throw was going to center field.
Nice play by Qualls though. Not so much for Robbie.
Seriously, get Larry Bowa back here stat.
Careful Michael with saying negative things about Monday.
Second double play Robbie has fucked him. Sit him tomorrow.
Then as of right now our infield would be Nix at third, Jeter at short, Pena at second and Chavez at first…
It’s sad when Cano forgets that he’s Cano.
He has his down phases. He seems to be in one right now, AB and in the field. Hopefully he snaps out of it quickly.
Cano really contributing to the cause today. Yikes.
Wtf is wrong with cano
We have to win this game so Qualls can get the win.
…before he’s DFA’d when Joba returns? Although I still wonder if they won’t send Eppley down.
We are winless when trailing after 8 this season right?
Qualls is such a dog…not even good stuff to strike anyone out
Let’s win this motherfucker!!!!!!!
give him a 12 year deal right now.
I was listening on the radio before, did anybody really see what happened to Tex?
The joke will be on us when Phelps or Eppley goes down for Joba.
If Phelps goes down I might have to murder someone.
Garbage time double!!!!!!!
Garbage time padding stats.
(Please don’t leave him there)
Nice of them to ensure rage when they don’t get a run here.
I hope everyone sees the Yankee tease going on here.
How can the Yankees be leading the Majors in come-back wins, and have a team built for power and comebacks, and not have won one game when trailing after eight?
Break that tonight.
Padilla just fed Brennen Boesch 3 eephus pitches in a row… guy is so annoying
If Ibanez bunts I’m going to have a stroke.
Ata boy swish
Pinch runner please
Come on dark lord
someone (preferable female) hold me
Ibanez is so clutch
Please any hitter with a 101 wRC+ would be great tomorrow.
Nice way to swing at 5 balls Ibanez
bad at bat…all he had to do is pull the ball on the ground.
Clearly should hav bunted!!!!!!!11111111
Johnson doesn’t strike anyone out. Come on.
Love the obligatory shot of the Japanese cameraman when Ichiro is mentioned.
I was just thinking, I really hope he works for like The Daily News or something.
Time for Ichiro to become a True Yankee (TM)
or he could do that…
Win or end the game, Michael?
Should Buck have used the lefty instead of Johnson?
COME ON BOYS
This team is so damn argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ichiro = Dewayne Wise
…that was a terrible hack.
I am so scared
Nice call by Ichiro.
Yankees have been slumping going back to the Oakland series.
Hopefully that changes beginning tomorrow.
Another day, another one run loss. It’s the pitching, the offense, the managing, we’re in trouble come October when all you play is one run games. Cashman is going to need to clear out the farm system tomorrow to get everything we need- a starter, bullpen help, a big bat, a catcher, a fill in 3rd baseman. We need at least a couple of these things to hold off the charge from the Os and Red Sox.
Sox are 9 back. What fucking charge are you talking about?
The Red Sox ain’t going nowhere….I worry more about the Rays. But this 1 run losses are unbelievably annoying. They have lost their SIX one run games.
and 2 losses by just 2 runs. 3-8 in their last 11. If they win just 2 more games people here would be less panicky. Maybe.
Lol, why don’t we worry about the Blue Jays charge too.
Get a bat.
Get a hitter.
I see you’ve changed your handle…
LOL this team. Three opportunities to get a hit with RISP.
This team sucks at comebacks. We were super spoiled by 2009.
0 for 34 when trailing after 8 innings this year!!! Girardi needs to start playing some small ball to manufacture some runs because this depending on the long ball isn’t quite working out!!!
9 up in the loss column on Boston. It was 12 three days ago.
So what? They’re DEAD.
Glad to see you can do math.
And it could very well go back to 12 after the next 3 games. Baseball tends to do that from time to time.
2004 has turned far too many Yankees fans into pussies.
Lead-off double wasted with the game on the line?
another disappointing loss. What’s the excuse now? This is getting ridiculous.
What exactly is russel martin doing on this team anyway? I could walk up there and hit under 200
He’s better than the available options.
George Kottarras was available. he’s been hitting much better, and walking at a great rate this season.
He would have made a fine platoon option with Martin. Martin would still be on the team though.
Kottaras is Piazza compared to the Martin/Stewart duo from hell.
What did Oakland give up for Kottaras?
Reliever Fautino De Los Santos, who absolutely sucked!! A’s got the better end of this deal!!
The high walk rate is true, however, Kotteras is hitting under .170 since late April with 4 RBI and an ISO of .042 since late April.
This team has the Yankee tease down pat
I blame the LNOGYs tonight. Couldn’t get any of the 4 lefties out. Pathetic!
Hands up if you thought the Yankees were going to score after getting a leadoff double.
I don’t see any hands.
I think we all knew it was over when Johnson came in. He doesn’t allow homers hence we were screwed.
I would have settled for two ground balls to the right side.
The bullpen has had some unfortunate outings recently.
Too many of these kinds of losses this season. Where’s the fight in this team? The middle of the order has been a joke lately.
Doesn’t sound great bout Tex…
Wrist injury. “Tests” tomorrow. Not sure what kind of tests but yeah.
I guarantee he isn’t in the line up for at least three games.
If it’s significant they have to trade for a bat. An everyday lineup with Chavez and Nix is a recipe for disaster.
Why? Why do they HAVE to? If he’s back before October…why? Who cares? They’re making the playoffs.
Nothing is guaranteed in July.
I said significant. Being out for the year would be significant.
Fuck making the playoffs, I want them to win the whole damn thing.
It’s always great when people think its a given that the Yankees will make the playoffs. Nothing is guaranteed in baseball.
Yeah, but they’re making the playoffs.
They PICKED UP two games in the last crappy week. No chicken or beer in that clubhouse.
It’s only apt.
The Pen blew this game a bit more than the offense did
Any chance Phelps can start for Freddy next time.
Freddy allowed three runs…if bum Boone Logan does his job we would have won.
He allowed nine hits.
Why does everyone around here get so snotty when a commenter complains about a loss? The team is playing like garbage these days, and they’re losing ground in the division. That’s a pretty important thing to be upset about.
It makes them feel cool.
Because most of them are the same people that are nowhere to be found when the team is doing well.
Cause we are all upset, but sometimes the panic brings up inane comments, like the Red Sox charge. We are still 6.5 games up not 6.5 behind.
After 2004 I will never write the Red Sox off. 7 games can go away pretty quick, and they scare me.
They are in 10th place in the AL. If that team’s name was anyone else except Boston, we would be OK. I just want the Yanks to get back to playing winning baseball. The past few days, they did just enough to lose. Let Boston get to 10 games over .500 then I will worry.
I don’t care about the rest of the AL, I just care about the division. The Yanks have a lot of interdivision games coming up, and they’d better start playing with some purpose.
Personally, I could give a fuck about 2004. This Yanks team has much better pitching than that one did. I’m more worried about the Rays and Orioles than the Sox.
Either way, win some goddamn games.
I see. I just started coming here, and it feels like a pretty smart place, but there’s only so cool I can be when my guys are playing terribly for the past two weeks.
I guess there are bandwagon anti-fans the same way there are bandwagon fans. I can see why that would be annoying.
Absolutely. There are just as many trolls that show up when we lose as fair weather fans that show up only when we’re winning, probably more.
In my experience on the internet, it’s equal that there are many people nowhere to be found during the losing, only the winning.
It’s a two-way street. And when this team is playing like shit (and 3-8 is shit), people have the right to air out their displeasure.
I mean, for fuck’s sake, this is the internet. For most of us, our fellow commentators are nothing more than anonymous handles whom we will never meet in real life, so why the hell should anyone care what anyone thinks of them? I think people in general care way too much about pseudo internet interpretations and conceptions.
No Tex and Arod. Yup our season is over. This team was barely squeezing out 4 runs a game before now I think we’re going to have to get used to seeing the Yankees get shutout.
Plus Grandy is slumping and Cano still thinks he is in KC. But we will be alright
I’ll give my “flip sides of the coin” reaction here.
-We still have a huge lead
-Our lead is still really big
-No, seriously, we’re still probably going to win the division. We have a good team here.
-OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE MORE INJURIES!?!?!?!?!?!
-3 wins in 11 games. Whoop-dee-fucking-doo
-Our offense has been anemic lately.
-Our bullpen hasn’t been sterling either
-In more detail about the offense-the fact that we’re one dimensional is really showing now. When we don’t hit home runs, we basically don’t score. There needs to be SOME sort of way that we score besides the home run.
-Overall we’ve just been playing like shit
Both Sides of the Coin: We’re still probably going to win the division, and we’re going to be getting a lot of these guys back, presumably, in time for the playoffs.
But right now we’re playing like shit, and if we don’t snap out of it relatively soon there WILL be real cause for concern, even though I don’t think we should be REALLY worried yet.
It’s completely fair at this point to start pointing out that the team should start playing better though.
