Yankees made offer for Brendan Ryan
Maine throws seven one-hit innings in AAA win
  • wow

    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.

    • your mom

      At least he didn’t have no beer and chicken.

  • DERP

    Let’s beat these fuckers.

  • Mike Stanley

    I declare this situation bullshit.

  • Ichy and Irok hello to number 28

    First

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Back to the spillover days.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    LNOGY’s really coming through tonight

  • Brian S.

    Rapada blows. Half this team blows.

  • DERP

    Just call up Juan Cedeno. These stupid idiots can’t do their fucking job.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Phelps could’ve done that. Michael Phelps too for that matter.

  • Mike Stanley

    QUALLS ARE YOU KIDDING ME HERE JOE

  • DERP

    It’s crazy how much crap there is on this team.

  • The Real Greg

    The whole bullpen is starting to come back down to earth.

    And so are the Yankees.

    Fuck you Brian Cashman.

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

      Sure hope you enjoy every win from here on out. You’ve earned it with all these hardships you’ve endured.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      so much hate …..

      • JobaWockeeZ

        On fire with the taunts. Not being sarcastic I mean it.

      • The Real Greg

        I’m sorry. I apologize. I was emotional.

    • Mike Stanley

      Every move he’s made, except Kontos, has been great. He ain’t the problem.

  • cjc

    here comes the gasoline. Nice work from the once good pen tonight. This team straight sucks right now

  • your mom

    Things are so depressing right now that our LOOGYs can’t even do their damn job.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Qualls? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING?

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

    …chad qualls? did Epply die?

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    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.

  • CUYanks

    Joe just cannot help himself with Qualls. He loves to bring into 1-run deficits.

  • The Real Greg

    Oh this isn’t going to go well.

  • Ichy and Irok hello to number 28

    Swisher to 1st
    Cervelli called up for backup
    Yeah that how joe wants it.

    • MannyGee

      so much catcherz!!!!!

  • Brian S.

    Chad Qualls in a one run game.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      What’s the matter? It’s what you do in September.

  • Rey22

    …Did Chad Qualls just warm up to One Direction?

  • DERP

    Will Qualls stay in to face Chris Davis?

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

    Cano isn’t having a good day throwing to first is he?

    • MannyGee

      another decade of those throws!!!

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    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.

  • RetroRob

    Careful Michael with saying negative things about Monday.

  • Brian S.

    Second double play Robbie has fucked him. Sit him tomorrow.

    • Brian S.

      *fucked up

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

      Then as of right now our infield would be Nix at third, Jeter at short, Pena at second and Chavez at first…

    • Ichy and Irok hello to number 28

      Trade him
      Fire sale

  • Get Phelps Up

    It’s sad when Cano forgets that he’s Cano.

    • RetroRob

      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.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Cano really contributing to the cause today. Yikes.

  • Ichy and Irok hello to number 28

    Wtf is wrong with cano

  • DERP

    We have to win this game so Qualls can get the win.

    • RetroRob

      …before he’s DFA’d when Joba returns? Although I still wonder if they won’t send Eppley down.

  • Rich

    We are winless when trailing after 8 this season right?

  • Celerino Sanchez

    Qualls is such a dog…not even good stuff to strike anyone out

  • Mike N

    Let’s win this motherfucker!!!!!!!

  • wow

    give him a 12 year deal right now.

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

    I was listening on the radio before, did anybody really see what happened to Tex?

  • DERP

    The joke will be on us when Phelps or Eppley goes down for Joba.

    • Get Phelps Up

      If Phelps goes down I might have to murder someone.

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    Let’s go!

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

    Garbage time double!!!!!!!

  • Mike N

    YEAH! SWISH!!!!!!!!

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

    Garbage time padding stats.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Garbage Time!!!!

    (Please don’t leave him there)

  • Mike Stanley

    Nice of them to ensure rage when they don’t get a run here.

  • DERP

    I hope everyone sees the Yankee tease going on here.

  • RetroRob

    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.

  • MannyGee

    Padilla just fed Brennen Boesch 3 eephus pitches in a row… guy is so annoying

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    If Ibanez bunts I’m going to have a stroke.

    • David

      Should’ve bunted.

  • Ichy and Irok hello to number 28

    Ata boy swish
    Pinch runner please

  • DERP

    shit

  • Ichy and Irok hello to number 28

    Come on dark lord
    Walkoff time

  • DERP

    someone (preferable female) hold me

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    Ugly swing…

  • DERP

    Yankee tease

  • Brian S.

    Ibanez is so clutch

  • RetroRob

    Steal.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Please any hitter with a 101 wRC+ would be great tomorrow.

  • Rich

    Nice way to swing at 5 balls Ibanez

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

    bad at bat…all he had to do is pull the ball on the ground.

  • Mike Stanley

    Clearly should hav bunted!!!!!!!11111111

  • DERP

    Johnson doesn’t strike anyone out. Come on.

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    Love the obligatory shot of the Japanese cameraman when Ichiro is mentioned.

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

      I was just thinking, I really hope he works for like The Daily News or something.

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

    Time for Ichiro to become a True Yankee (TM)

    • jjyank

      +1

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

      or he could do that…

  • RetroRob

    Win or end the game, Michael?

  • DERP

    Should Buck have used the lefty instead of Johnson?

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    Ugh.

  • jjyank

    COME ON BOYS

  • Widget

    This team is so damn argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mr. Pink

    Ichiro = Dewayne Wise

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

    …that was a terrible hack.

  • DERP

    I am so scared

  • AaronGuielWithASmile

    Nice call by Ichiro.

  • RetroRob

    Yankees have been slumping going back to the Oakland series.

    Hopefully that changes beginning tomorrow.

  • Arya

    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.

    • Widget

      Sox are 9 back. What fucking charge are you talking about?

    • Mike Stanley

      LMAO

    • Rich

      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.

      • Widget

        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.

    • Bunt Gardner

      Charge? HAHAHAHAAA

      • Rich

        Lol, why don’t we worry about the Blue Jays charge too.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Get a bat.

  • DERP

    Fucking losers.

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

    …god damnit…

  • Mike N

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Get a hitter.

    Please.

    • Anthony

      I see you’ve changed your handle…

  • Brian S.

    LOL this team. Three opportunities to get a hit with RISP.

  • Mr. Pink

    This team sucks at comebacks. We were super spoiled by 2009.

    • Targetbuilder

      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!!!

  • Brian S.

    9 up in the loss column on Boston. It was 12 three days ago.

    • Mike Stanley

      So what? They’re DEAD.

      DEAD.

    • Bunt Gardner

      Glad to see you can do math.

    • Widget

      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.

  • Kramerica Industries

    Lead-off double wasted with the game on the line?

    I.

    Am.

    Shocked.

  • wow

    another disappointing loss. What’s the excuse now? This is getting ridiculous.

  • Rick C

    What exactly is russel martin doing on this team anyway? I could walk up there and hit under 200

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      He’s better than the available options.

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

        George Kottarras was available. he’s been hitting much better, and walking at a great rate this season.

        • Need Pitching & Hitting

          He would have made a fine platoon option with Martin. Martin would still be on the team though.

        • FIPster Doofus

          Kottaras is Piazza compared to the Martin/Stewart duo from hell.

        • Brian S.

          What did Oakland give up for Kottaras?

          • Targetbuilder

            Reliever Fautino De Los Santos, who absolutely sucked!! A’s got the better end of this deal!!

        • Evan3457

          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.

  • DERP

    This team has the Yankee tease down pat

  • your mom

    I blame the LNOGYs tonight. Couldn’t get any of the 4 lefties out. Pathetic!

  • Heisenberg’s Hat

    Hands up if you thought the Yankees were going to score after getting a leadoff double.
    I don’t see any hands.

    • Mr. Pink

      I think we all knew it was over when Johnson came in. He doesn’t allow homers hence we were screwed.

      • Heisenberg’s Hat

        I would have settled for two ground balls to the right side.

  • DERP

    The bullpen has had some unfortunate outings recently.

  • Mr. Pink

    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.

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

    Doesn’t sound great bout Tex…

    • Brian S.

      Wrist injury. “Tests” tomorrow. Not sure what kind of tests but yeah.

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

        I guarantee he isn’t in the line up for at least three games.

    • Widget

      If it’s significant they have to trade for a bat. An everyday lineup with Chavez and Nix is a recipe for disaster.

      • Mike Stanley

        Why? Why do they HAVE to? If he’s back before October…why? Who cares? They’re making the playoffs.

        • CUYanks

          Nothing is guaranteed in July.

        • Widget

          I said significant. Being out for the year would be significant.

          Fuck making the playoffs, I want them to win the whole damn thing.

        • Mr. Pink

          It’s always great when people think its a given that the Yankees will make the playoffs. Nothing is guaranteed in baseball.

          • Mike Stanley

            Yeah, but they’re making the playoffs.

            They PICKED UP two games in the last crappy week. No chicken or beer in that clubhouse.

    • Kramerica Industries

      It’s only apt.

  • DT

    The Pen blew this game a bit more than the offense did

  • DERP

    Any chance Phelps can start for Freddy next time.

    • Rich

      Freddy allowed three runs…if bum Boone Logan does his job we would have won.

      • Heisenberg’s Hat

        He allowed nine hits.

  • Heisenberg’s Hat

    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.

    • Brian S.

      It makes them feel cool.

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

      Because most of them are the same people that are nowhere to be found when the team is doing well.

      • Rich

        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.

        • Heisenberg’s Hat

          After 2004 I will never write the Red Sox off. 7 games can go away pretty quick, and they scare me.

          • Rich

            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.

            • eephus_pitch

              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.

              • eephus_pitch

                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.

      • Heisenberg’s Hat

        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.

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

          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.

      • Kramerica Industries

        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.

  • Mr. Pink

    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.

    • Get Phelps Up

      lol

    • Rich

      Plus Grandy is slumping and Cano still thinks he is in KC. But we will be alright

  • Rocky Road Redemption

    I’ll give my “flip sides of the coin” reaction here.

    Positives:

    -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.

    Negatives:

    -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.
