  1. wow says:

    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.

  2. DERP says:

    Let’s beat these fuckers.

  3. Mike Stanley says:

    I declare this situation bullshit.

  4. Ichy and Irok hello to number 28 says:

    First

  5. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Back to the spillover days.

  6. Need Pitching & Hitting says:

    LNOGY’s really coming through tonight

  7. Brian S. says:

    Rapada blows. Half this team blows.

  8. DERP says:

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

  9. JobaWockeeZ says:

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

  10. Mike Stanley says:

    QUALLS ARE YOU KIDDING ME HERE JOE

  11. DERP says:

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

  12. The Real Greg says:

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

    And so are the Yankees.

    Fuck you Brian Cashman.

  13. cjc says:

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

  14. your mom says:

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

  15. Need Pitching & Hitting says:

    Qualls? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING?

  16. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    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.

  17. CUYanks says:

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

  18. The Real Greg says:

    Oh this isn’t going to go well.

  19. Ichy and Irok hello to number 28 says:

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

  20. Brian S. says:

    Chad Qualls in a one run game.

  21. Rey22 says:

    …Did Chad Qualls just warm up to One Direction?

  22. DERP says:

    Will Qualls stay in to face Chris Davis?

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

  24. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    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.

  25. RetroRob says:

    Careful Michael with saying negative things about Monday.

  26. Brian S. says:

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

  27. Get Phelps Up says:

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

    • RetroRob says:

      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.

  28. Need Pitching & Hitting says:

    Cano really contributing to the cause today. Yikes.

  29. Ichy and Irok hello to number 28 says:

    Wtf is wrong with cano

  30. DERP says:

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

  31. Rich says:

    We are winless when trailing after 8 this season right?

  32. Celerino Sanchez says:

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

  33. Mike N says:

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

  34. wow says:

    give him a 12 year deal right now.

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

  36. DERP says:

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

  37. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Let’s go!

  38. Mike N says:

    YEAH! SWISH!!!!!!!!

  39. Mike Axisa says:

    Garbage time padding stats.

  40. Need Pitching & Hitting says:

    Garbage Time!!!!

    (Please don’t leave him there)

  41. Mike Stanley says:

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

  42. DERP says:

    I hope everyone sees the Yankee tease going on here.

  43. RetroRob says:

    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.

  44. MannyGee says:

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

  45. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

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

  46. Ichy and Irok hello to number 28 says:

    Ata boy swish
    Pinch runner please

  47. Ichy and Irok hello to number 28 says:

    Come on dark lord
    Walkoff time

  48. DERP says:

    someone (preferable female) hold me

  49. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Ugly swing…

  50. DERP says:

    Yankee tease

  51. Brian S. says:

    Ibanez is so clutch

  52. RetroRob says:

    Steal.

  53. JobaWockeeZ says:

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

  54. Rich says:

    Nice way to swing at 5 balls Ibanez

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

  56. Mike Stanley says:

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

  57. DERP says:

    Johnson doesn’t strike anyone out. Come on.

  58. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

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

  59. Time for Ichiro to become a True Yankee (TM)

  60. RetroRob says:

    Win or end the game, Michael?

  61. DERP says:

    Should Buck have used the lefty instead of Johnson?

  62. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Ugh.

  63. jjyank says:

    COME ON BOYS

  64. Widget says:

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

  65. Mr. Pink says:

    Ichiro = Dewayne Wise

  66. DERP says:

    I am so scared

  67. AaronGuielWithASmile says:

    Nice call by Ichiro.

  68. RetroRob says:

    Yankees have been slumping going back to the Oakland series.

    Hopefully that changes beginning tomorrow.

  69. Arya says:

    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.

  70. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Get a bat.

  71. DERP says:

    Fucking losers.

  72. Mike N says:

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

  73. Need Pitching & Hitting says:

    Get a hitter.

    Please.

  74. Brian S. says:

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

  75. Mr. Pink says:

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

    • Targetbuilder says:

      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!!!

  76. Brian S. says:

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

  77. Kramerica Industries says:

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

    I.

    Am.

    Shocked.

  78. wow says:

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

  79. Rick C says:

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

  80. DERP says:

    This team has the Yankee tease down pat

  81. your mom says:

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

  82. Heisenberg's Hat says:

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

  83. DERP says:

    The bullpen has had some unfortunate outings recently.

  84. Mr. Pink says:

    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.

  85. DT says:

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

  86. DERP says:

    Any chance Phelps can start for Freddy next time.

  87. Heisenberg's Hat says:

    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. says:

      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.

      • Rich says:

        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 says:

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

          • Rich says:

            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 says:

              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 says:

                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 says:

        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.

      • Kramerica Industries says:

        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.

  88. Mr. Pink says:

    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.

  89. Rocky Road Redemption says:

    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.
