Game 123: Spoiler

Man I hate Sunday night games. I like to chill out and relax with no baseball as the weekend ends, and you and I both know this game probably won’t end until midnight or so. A win would make it all better, if for no other reason than to make the Red Sox’s life a little more complicated. The Yankees have such a small chance of making the postseason right now that playing spoiler might be as good as it gets from here on out. Here’s the lineup Joe Girardi is sending out there against Ryan Dempster:

  1. CF Brett Gardner
  2. RF Ichiro Suzuki
  3. 2B Robinson Cano
  4. LF Alfonso Soriano
  5. 3B Alex Rodriguez
  6. DH Curtis Granderson
  7. SS Eduardo Nunez
  8. 1B Lyle Overbay
  9. C Chris Stewart

And on the mound is left-hander CC Sabathia, who has been better of late but still far off from what he was even last year. If the big man was ever going to put up a big performance, this would be the night to do it.

The weather’s fine in Boston, so don’t worry about rain or anything. First pitch is scheduled for a little after 8pm ET and can be seen on ESPN. Try to enjoy.

Rotation Update: Ivan Nova and Phil Hughes will start the two games of Tuesday’s doubleheader in whatever order. They’ll need to come up with a spot starter for Saturday’s game against the Rays, and Joe Girardi indicated they are leaning towards Adam Warren.

    So, let’s see:

    – Two long drives that quickly stall out in the red zone.
    – Dropped easy interception by a DB.
    – Ugly interception thrown by Manning.

    Yup, Giants are definitely in mid-season form.

    And when the hell did Aaron Ross come back???

  2. Darren says:

    I can only hope the whole spoiler thing is trolling and not your genuine feeling. you seem like a real fan, Mike, but I can’t believe you’re really at the spoiler point now. If it was September 18, I would get it, although even then I would be fighting.

    If this is what happens when you look too closely at the percentages, then I sincerely feel bad for you.

    Let’s go Yankees.

  3. Kramerica Industries says:

    All I can say for the Blue Jays is that they better be the same worthless turds for the Yankees this week as they were against the Rays this weekend.

    Holy shit. Do you guys realize just how bad a team must be to get walked off by Jose fucking Lobaton TWICE in the space of three days? That’s a special kind of shittiness. I mean, at least the Orioles were getting walked off by Paul Goldschmidt and Aaron Hill. The Jays get walked off by a catcher deemed not good enough to play for the effing San Diego Padres.

  4. Kevin G. says:

    This game ends u/o 12:30?

  5. trr says:

    Spoiler, Schmoiler.
    Just win!

  6. Kevin G. says:

    Let’s hope for a win plus four walks from Cano

  7. BigBlueAL says:

    Curt Schilling in the booth?? FML

  8. Karl Krawfid says:

    Gonna turn this shit off.

    Fuck ESPN. Fuck Shilling.

    Gonna chill on this Sunday.

  9. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Attaboy CC walk the leadoff guy.

  10. your mom says:

    Good start by Feces.

  11. mason says:

    man cc looks like crap

  12. BigBlueAL says:

    Nunez has less range than Jeter right now.

  13. mason says:

    not only has he lost velo he has no command

  14. your mom says:

    Please no Grand salami here.

  15. Kramerica Industries says:

    So Sabathia still can’t get these Red Sox LHB out, I see.

  16. mason says:

    almost ready to throw in the towel?

  17. Cy Pettitte says:

    I really dread Sabathia starts.

  18. your mom says:

    Okay so Warren pitched yesterday, who’s the garbage man today? CC’s not lasting 5 innings.

  19. Kramerica Industries says:

    It could almost be argued now that Sabathia doesn’t even give the Yankees a chance to win his starts anymore.

  20. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Between the Feces on the field and the bias in the booth, this is excruciating.

  21. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    We are going to get slaughtered. CC needs to be sent down.

  22. your mom says:

    Why doesn’t Nava have a beard too?

  23. mason says:

    im done. iknow its 1st inning but cc looks horid and the espn guys r killing me

  24. Cy Pettitte says:

    I think we’re at the point where the A-Rod extension looks better than the CC extension.

  25. 28 this year says:

    Yay we get an extended David Huff appearance today

  26. Wj says:

    Pretty amazing we are over 500 without a gm

  27. BigBlueAL says:

    CC is pitching like shit but if Nunez catches that ball and gets an out CC is out of this inning with 0 runs allowed.

    • your mom says:

      If he got that grounder he probably wouldn’t have had a chance at an out. Either that or the ball ends up in the stands and the runs score anyways. Lose-lose.

  28. Cy Pettitte says:

    can Levine and Co. start looking for a way to void CC’s contract? maybe slip some roids in his cereal?

  29. Manny's BanWagon says:

    CC seems determined to give Arod a run for worst contract on the team.

    If this is how he’s gonna pitch moving forward, add another problem to their endless list.

  30. your mom says:

    What a bunch of douchy fans cheering that shit. I swear, Fuck Boston.

  31. Kramerica Industries says:

    Those assclowns at Fenway are a piece of work, I’ll tell you that much right now.

  32. Cy Pettitte says:

    Dempster is fucking clown

  33. your mom says:

    Fight!!! Fight!!!!

  34. Kramerica Industries says:

    FUCK YOU DEMSPTER

  35. Charles says:

    Classy move by Dumpster… Should have been warned when Alex got thrown behind.

  36. Rolling Doughnut says:

    ARod gets booed but Papi always gets a pass. Fuck you Blosox fans,

  37. Jay says:

    I LOVE IT!!!!!

  38. your mom says:

    CC better bean someone’s fucking ass now!

  39. Dalek Jeter says:

    Oh, so throwing at a guy 3 consecutive times gets you a warning and gets the opposing manager tossed.

  40. Captain Turbo says:

    Ha, Sterling is getting all pissed off. “CC *has* to throw at somebody!”

  41. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    What in the hell just happened? That was the most confusing HBP and tossing sequence I’ve seen in a long time.

  42. Dalek Jeter says:

    And now Dempster is making me agree with Curt Schilling. Fuck you Dempster.

  43. Charles says:

    Papi has to get drilled in the hip/somewhere where it hurts tonight, I don’t care who gets ejected.

  44. BigBlueAL says:

    Horrible job by the plate ump.

  45. 28 this year says:

    Fuck Dempster

  46. Wheels says:

    Good job Grandy

  47. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Wait, I just switched back to the game. What the Hell happened?

    • Dalek Jeter says:

      Dempster threw at a-rod intentionally at least twice, and only caught a warning. Joe lost it and got tossed

    • Kramerica Industries says:

      Dempster threw behind ARod 0-0 and tried to buzz him on the first three pitches. Finally got him on the fourth. Obvious as it gets.

      And both benches got warned for it.

      Total bullshit.

  48. Kramerica Industries says:

    Without your own cheater, the Red Sox still have no titles in 95 years. Fuck off.

  49. Get Phelps Up says:

    You know it’s really bad when the ESPN booth is fully sympathizing w/ the Yankees.

  50. Holy Ghost says:

    How does he not get ejected after that?

    Way to go Grandy!

  51. your mom says:

    If CC beans someone I will refrain from calling him Feces ever again.

  52. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Maybe CC should drill Papi. Two birds with one stone, CC is out of the game and fuck you Papi.

  53. SDB says:

    Ha. A-Rod scores. Fuck you Dumpster!

  54. BigBlueAL says:

    At least Schilling and Kruk are on Girardi’s side lol.

  55. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    Well, the HBP coming in to score a run is the best revenge you can hope for at this point.

    • your mom says:

      Yes, but a hit Red Sox batter and a win would be the best. The ultimate, a total collapse by the Red Sox to end the season.

  56. Mick taylor says:

    So why don’t yanks hit david Ortiz. He cheated on steroids but that does not bother dumpster. Maybe dumpster should bit h slap Ortiz in the dugout .

  57. Kevin G. says:

    Joe Girardi is a scary dude when mad.

    On the bright side, we may have finally found a use for Joba

  58. Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    This is the way to answer, thanks for the baserunner dumpster you clown. Lets win This thing!

  59. yeayo says:

    Dempster is a fucking joke. Does he think he is the crusader of fucking baseball?

  60. Captain Turbo says:

    Yeah, tied it up, you wife-beating motherfuckers.

  61. mason says:

    thts bullshit…benchs get warned and now we cant retaliate

  62. Rolling Doughnut says:

    CC looks like shit anyway, he needs to put one up Papi’s ass.

    • your mom says:

      Need to hit the Midget. Or Ellsbury would be nice cause he’s made of glass.

      • OldYanksFan says:

        Mighty Mouse has a bad ankle. Let Joba hit him there, later in the game. Let Papi sweat a while.

      • Lukaszek says:

        Ellsbury seems like a nice guy though; always minds his business and keeps his mouth shut. If you aim for anyone, let it be the big-mouthed bearded midget, the bearded Italian who looks like a truck driver, or the massive Dominican

  63. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    No, really, get CC out of there.

  64. your mom says:

    LOL, that was a rather feminine throw.

  65. Lukaszek says:

    Feels like there is a brawl in the cooking

  66. Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Run scissorhands!!

  67. SDB says:

    Let Joba do the retaliation when CC gets taken out after 5 or 6 innings. That is, if he can actually hit someone’s body with his current command.

  68. Kramerica Industries says:

    Seriously, I would like to think every Yankee fan on the planet would have that reaction that Girardi did.

    And he got tossed for it, too.

    What a fucking joke. I hope Sabathia retaliates anyway. It’s fully justified.

  69. Eddard says:

    CC should absolutely throw at Big Papi next time he comes up. Even if he gets tossed, he has to make a point. It ain’t like they’ll be missing much if he goes anyway.

  70. Kramerica Industries says:

    You know, this just vaulted into “most satisfying win of the season” category if the Yankees win tonight.

  71. Wedge says:

    Gardner must be fined for that

  72. Michael Allen says:

    I was hoping this would happen at some point this weekend. Not that I wanted to see A-Rod hit but I thought something like this would perhaps awaken the sleeping giant that is the New York Yankees.

  73. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    You KNOW shit’s bad when Curt Schilling is taking the Yanks’ side in a Yankees – Sox game.

  74. Wj says:

    Joba make yourself useful and hit someone in the head

  75. your mom says:

    John Kruk with a good point, the Boston hitters are uncomfortable because they don’t know who’s going to get hit. If I were Rat Face or Papi I’d be very uncomfortable. Probably won’t get beaned until the later innings though.

  76. JGYank says:

    Dumpster is the biggest ass on the planet and hides behind the umps. He should of been ejected but Instead Girardi gets ejected instead. Complete bs. The crowd was classy as well. He threw at him twice and is still pitching. Sad. CC can’t even doing anything about it.

  77. mike_h says:

    CC better fuckin throw at somebody, I dont care if its the ball boy

    • Mr. Roth says:

      It’s got to be Ortiz. I’d love to see a CC vs. Ortiz showdown with the bases clear in the 6th-7th when CC is at about 100 pitches.

    • Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

      A win would do the trick for me…
      Now, if they (RS) take a 5+ run lead, then absolutely, throw at everybody, especially their own ped user, big floppy.

    • Rolling Doughnut says:

      Let Jobber do it. Hope it’s Papi and not Ratboy.

  78. stuart a says:

    when nespn said it was intentional any doubt???

    when the time is right CC needs to definitely hit someone good.

    mlb umps are morons, girardi got ejected. that’s all you need to know.

    gardner swinging 3 and 0, horrible horrible play.

    • Dalek Jeter says:

      ESPN, and Schilling, to their credit immediately called out the Umpire for not ejecting Dempster, saying the first pitch was clearly intentional and that he should’ve been warned then.

  79. your mom says:

    If any combo of the A’s, Red Sox, Rays, Detroit, Orioles and Texas make the playoffs who is everyone cheering for?

    • Captain Turbo says:

      The Mets.

    • Lukaszek says:

      A’s, simply because I have a bias for anyone in the Bay Area (also rooted for San Fran both years they were in the WS)

      Orioles too I guess cause I feel bad for them with the whole “15 years without playoffs” thing

  80. Mr. Roth says:

    Boy do I hope Alex goes deep on (cum)Dumpster

  81. Jake says:

    Hit the troll not big sloppy

  82. your mom says:

    Oh Robbie, right down the pipe with that slider.

  83. Mr. Roth says:

    If anyone on the Yanks goes yard I really hope they style the hell out of it, do the meanest bat flip ever done in MLB history, and take a nice slow and triumphant trot around the bases.

  84. your mom says:

    Bunt Sori, bunt! JK.

  85. Mick taylor says:

    Ortiz is a proven steroid cheater from 2003.he at 37 is still cheating on peds as witness his 332 average. Hit him c.c .

  86. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Oh man A-Rod, please just crush one over the monster.

  87. JGYank says:

    Hopefully Arod hits a liner off dempster.

  88. Wheels says:

    How the fuck is Dempster still in this game? It’s ludicrous

  89. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    NOW crush one A-Rod. And good baserunning by Ichiro.

  90. Dalek Jeter says:

    I want Alex to just crush one 800ft and watch it until it lands, then blow a kiss to Dempster, take off his gear, and then walk around the bases.

  91. BigBlueAL says:

    Go yard Alex.

  92. Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Come on A-Rod, hit it hard man. You deserve it, and the team needs it.

  93. your mom says:

    Dempster truly is a pussy, won’t even challenge Arod.

  94. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    If he strikes out that would be so disheartening.

  95. mike_h says:

    yankees take the lead

  96. Wheels says:

    3 fucking 2.

  97. BigBlueAL says:

    An absolute cookie on 3-2. A few years ago that ball breaks a car’s window behind the Green Monster.

  98. Captain Turbo says:

    Good job, A-Rod. Fuck Boston.

  99. Winter says:

    Clearly the Red Sox fans hate A-Rod more than they hate losing.

  100. Kevin G. says:

    They do realize ARod drove in run? So thanks for cheering on the Yankees I guess?

  101. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    That’s not exactly the best case scenario, but we got the run.

  102. RBC says:

    Good. RBI for Alex.

  103. mason says:

    I still want cc to slam some1 and do it pdro style…hit his helmet

  104. Get Phelps Up says:

    Is that the loudest Fenway’s ever been after the visitors scored a run? I think it might be.

  105. Kramerica Industries says:

    You know what’s hysterical here?

    Most Yankees fans dislike ARod like everybody else. Somehow, shitheads like Dempster are making him a sympathetic figure to us, and someone to rally around.

    Glad you have your priorities in order, assholes.

    • Rolling Doughnut says:

      ARod is just the lightning rod because he’s generally an asshole. Nothing to do with the cheating, for which he’s only one of the guilty many.

    • ClusterDuck says:

      Amazing isn’t it. Dumpster turns A-Rod into a sympathetic figure. Dumpster is a coward.

  106. Rolling Doughnut says:

    No, no CC not down the middle.

  107. stuart a says:

    i dislike arod immensely but I want him to do well for the yanks…

    he is a cheater. I already know that so are about 120 other guys more or less.

    as 1 of the bafoons said, why no pitcher hit melky cabrera? or braun? or tejada???

    when guys like dempster try to act like he has a brain it is a mistake. throw the ball moron, don’t think. your not capable of dealing wit hany complecity.

  108. Captain Turbo says:

    Hit Big Sloppy!

  109. your mom says:

    Fuckin WP.

  110. BigBlueAL says:

    Lead lasted longer than I expected.

  111. Manny's BanWagon says:

    I can’t stand Arod but I sure hope Joba gets a chance to pull a Kenny Powers on Ortiz.

  112. your mom says:

    If Lackey were a man, he should’ve been the one to hit Arod yesterday.

  113. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Get fucking CC out of there. Seriously, he’s shit right now.

  114. your mom says:

    Geez, Gomes, don’t get your panties in a bunch.

  115. Wheels says:

    Great throw

  116. JGYank says:

    I wish Girardi charged the mound. He was really pissed.

  117. Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Oh, that play reminded me of how great A-Rod was, it’s a damn shame how his situation with the team has gone to hell.

  118. your mom says:

    Okay, now steal a fucking base.

  119. JGYank says:

    Dam Ballpark. This whole broadcast is going to be about Arod.

  120. Wheels says:

    Stupid stadium, just a single out of that

  121. Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Run Eddie!

  122. Kramerica Industries says:

    Yeah, and you can go fuck yourself, Randy.

    • JGYank says:

      Levine is right. Arod needs to give proof to back his comments or he should shut up. Yanks should sue him for defamation.

  123. Probably the main reason we have no response from CC is he doesn’t want to be ejected.

  124. your mom says:

    Shit Stewart, better hit them weights this offseason.

  125. Here Comes the Pizza says:

    And there goes Nuney’s helmet.

  126. JGYank says:

    And the Espn bias begins with thrashing the Yanks.

  127. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Tell you what though, this is compelling baseball, and I’m loving that at least.

  128. your mom says:

    WTF Gardner? Putting together some fucking awesome at bats tonight.

  129. Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Brett Mays Hayes … Jesus shortie, put the ball on the ground and run!

  130. Wedge says:

    Gardner should forfeit his game check

  131. Wheels says:

    Denzel down with the Yanks

  132. mason says:

    typical redsox..it takes 3 tries to do anything

  133. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Holy shit does CC suck. This is painful.

  134. mason says:

    ok cc u suck just drill some1

  135. your mom says:

    Okay CC, just hit someone already if you’re going to be giving up lead-off doubles.

  136. BigBlueAL says:

    Another leadoff rocket for a double. Sigh.

  137. Wedge says:

    Cc is phil hughes

  138. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Another 0-2 XB hit. By Saltalawhoeverthefuck. Fuck you Feces.

  139. Eddard says:

    Just drill someone in the back and get yourself tossed from the ballgame, CC. It would do the club a lot of good right now.

  140. Wedge says:

    Right down the middle on 0-2

  141. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    I hate watching CC pitch so much.

  142. Wheels says:

    Fuck CC, wtf

  143. BigBlueAL says:

    Seriously 0-2 to Drew and cant even K him or keep him in the infield??

  144. your mom says:

    Fuck CC. Pathetic to say the least. Bean someone now damn it!

  145. Luis castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Pathetic Sabathia

  146. Captain Turbo says:

    OK, now CC can hit someone.

  147. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Hey guys, Toy Story 3 is on!

  148. Kramerica Industries says:

    #obligatoryhomer

    Thanks for trying, once again, C.C.

  149. OldYanksFan says:

    Fuckin’ CC.
    It’s like watching Hughes pitch.
    A HR is always just waiting to happen.
    Frankly, as shitty as the O as been, it is CC that keeps us from having a chance at the PS this season.

  150. BigBlueAL says:

    Embarrassing.

  151. Wedge says:

    Cc is just a pussy

  152. BigBlueAL says:

    Amazing this is the same pitcher who dominated the Orioles in the ALDS last October.

  153. Rolling Doughnut says:

    CC’s one of the reasons I have to take out a second mortgage to get a beer at YS and this is what we get?

  154. Mick taylor says:

    I would trade cc for Josh hamilton

  155. stuart a says:

    who has been worse tonight Cc or gardner?

    gardner thinks he is mark reynolds.

    sabathia another bad outing against the redsux. he better hit big poopie before he exits the game. he can hit the midget or gomes..

    he better hit someone especially if they are going to lose anyway…

  156. your mom says:

    Seriously, who the fuck is afraid of hitting against CC anymore? He can’t even protect his damn teammates.

  157. TCMiller30 says:

    I can’t wait until Joba gets into this game. Hopefully he remembers how to throw that 100mph fastball again. I think Ortiz would like to see one one up close and personal between the eyes.

  158. OldYanksFan says:

    CC now has a 4.82 ERA.

  159. your mom says:

    LOL. Good try Farrell you tool!

  160. stuart a says:

    john farrel lieing thru his teeth

    repulsive.. insane.. insane..

  161. Wheels says:

    Shut up Farrell

  162. Kramerica Industries says:

    Farrell is full of shit.

  163. BigBlueAL says:

    On a side note, pretty sad that the Yankee offense hasnt been able to knock Dempster out of this game already.

  164. BigBlueAL says:

    Great inning by the offense.

  165. Gonzalo Hiram says:

    CC is the perfect example why Yankees should not give a big offer to Cano

  166. your mom says:

    Dempster’s a lucky fuck. We’re hitting the ball hard, but not to the right spots .

  167. stuart a says:

    you can always count on ichiro and cano to be patient at the plate.

    john farrel fucking lieing like a fuckin a hole..

    and the nespn crew fucking with there diplomatic bullshit.

  168. JGYank says:

    Bs Farell. He even hesitated. We have to win this game.

  169. Anderson Silva says:

    Cc is shit.

  170. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    CC’s hitting Papi if he gets the first two guys out, right? He probably won’t get a chance later in the game.

  171. your mom says:

    Good job Scissorhands.

  172. Wedge says:

    Cc is the biggest coward pussy

  173. Wheels says:

    Nunez sucks

  174. Wheels says:

    Nunez sucks.

  175. your mom says:

    CC having diminished velocity would be okay if he could just locate his damn pitches. Hey look, another double!

  176. Kramerica Industries says:

    I legitimately cannot remember a good Sabathia start at Fenway as a Yankee. Can anyone help me here?

  177. your mom says:

    Yeah, Fuck you Gomes.

  178. BigBlueAL says:

    Nunez cant catch a grounder smoothly if its not hit right to him. Even then its a struggle for him.

  179. Wheels says:

    Oh CC.

  180. your mom says:

    Salty’s going deep isn’t he?

  181. Wedge says:

    I mean kill yourself cc just kill yourself. Youre a complete piece of crap pussy

  182. Shaina says:

    CC Shitbathia

  183. Captain Turbo says:

    Nice catch, Nuney, you hack!

  184. Mick taylor says:

    I think it would be heartwarming if the espn crew would talk about how Ortiz in his late 30s has been able to hit an astounding 335 the clean way. I mean how great it is that a37 year old can hit 335 with 24 home runs the clean way without peds.

  185. your mom says:

    4.2 innings, 7 hits, 5 ER, 3 BBs, what a fucking start!

  186. Kramerica Industries says:

    Unbelievable.

    Pitches around somebody, and then walks him. Good going.

  187. your mom says:

    Please retire CC, you suck.

  188. WhittakerWalt says:

    CC is so fucking shot, it’s not even funny anymore.

  189. Cy Pettitte says:

    you have to be fucking kidding me with a bases loaded walk. You can blame the poor offense but CC is the reason this team isn’t making the playoffs. If he’s anywhere close to a 3.50 ERA this is a playoff team. He’s the guy with the huge contract and he fucked this team in the ass this year with his garbage performances.

  190. Captain Turbo says:

    Fuuuck.

  191. Wheels says:

    Hard to win when they score 6 runs, CC.

  192. Wedge says:

    Petrified to throw a strike

  193. ArchStanton says:

    Why would you have CC intentionally load the bases with his control issues?

  194. Eddard says:

    As bad as the rest of that A-Rod contract is, the CC contract is even worse. How do they not have anyone warming up? This isn’t the CC of old, he should be treated like Phil Hughes at this point. Ballgame over, season over.

    • BigBlueAL says:

      Dont both contracts last another 4 years?? There is a much greater chance of the Yankees getting at least some decent production out of CC than Arod in the next 4 years. Not even close.

  195. UncleArgle says:

    Put CC on irrevocable waivers. The dodgers will take him, and then won’t bid on Cano. A Win Win

  196. stuart a says:

    arod contract is much worse you are stoned.

    nunez just cannot play SS at the MLB level.

    10 errors in 60 games, if the guy hit 320 then you can deal with it. he is maddening…

    cc better hit the first guy next inning and then end another bad outing from fatty.

    a year of issapointment from Cc and the gun showed 95 numerous times but still talk about the velocity over and over…

  197. your mom says:

    As ugly as this game has been, it could be a lot worse. I guess we won’t be seeing a Red Sox get plunked tonight?

  198. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Embarrassing. I say fuck it, next time they play Boston, have CC buy the KFC and beer and party with Phil in the clubhouse.

  199. Wedge says:

    Were getting belittled on national tv again…at least arod has some heart

  200. Lukaszek says:

    SUCK ON THAT, RYAN DUMPSTER

  201. your mom says:

    Nice! Too bad we’re still fucking losing. Thanks to CC.

  202. RBC says:

    WONDERFUL!!!

  203. BigBlueAL says:

    Arod did a Big Papi when he touched home plate!! Love it lol.

  204. Dalek Jeter says:

    A-ROD

  205. Holy Ghost says:

    Fuckin A-Rod!

  206. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    Best hotdogging ever.

  207. JGYank says:

    Sad we need to have our highest paid pitcher skip his starts in Fenway.

  208. Cy Pettitte says:

    A-BOMB!!! fuck you Dempster

  209. Captain Turbo says:

    Fuck yeah, A-Rod!

  210. JGYank says:

    Attaboy Arod!

  211. pat says:

    Holy shit did he just do the Ortiz thing?

  212. yeayo says:

    Fucking love it. Haha, Arod just showing them up.

  213. Rolling Doughnut says:

    A-Bomb!

  214. Wheels says:

    This shit isn’t over.

  215. your mom says:

    Wow, even with Nunie’s speed he’s stuck with 2 singles only.

  216. your mom says:

    Need a Loverbay Bomb.

  217. Holy Ghost says:

    It looked like it was over 450ft

  218. pat says:

    Nunez just hurt himself.

  219. Joe C says:

    A-Rod is a shit head but that was pretty awesome. Dumpster had that coming for sure.

  220. Captain Turbo says:

    Nunez just really doesn’t do anything right, does he?

  221. The Lime says:

    While I’d prefer a win, I’m very happy that A-Rod has scored a run on a HBP and a HR. I really don’t understand how these knuckleheads can be so against A-Rod’s current position as fellow members of a union. Yes, he’s a douche and he may be guilty, but damn, how can you approve of the his punishment and the way that he’s been treated?

  222. Wedge says:

    Have to pinch hit

  223. nsalem says:

    Are these announcers calling a baseball game or is this a 4 hour Anti-A-Rod commercial?

  224. Cy Pettitte says:

    PH for Stewart. this is a huge AB.

  225. your mom says:

    LMFAO Dempster. Walked the worst hitter ever.

  226. BigBlueAL says:

    Tell Stewart to take every pitch. Who cares if he K’s just dont GIDP.

  227. Mick taylor says:

    I. Would still trade cc for Josh Hamilton

  228. Dela G says:

    A walk to chris stewart?

    yeah, that’s a for sure death for a pitcher

  229. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Time to clear the bases and get that L for Dumpster.

  230. Cy Pettitte says:

    walking Stewart on 4 pitches…lol.

  231. your mom says:

    With the way Gardner has sucked recently I’m pinch hitting Wells or Reynolds here.

  232. Captain Turbo says:

    CC should have beaned Ryan Dempster as he walked off the field.

  233. Wheels says:

    Gardner needs to redeem himself for those shitty ABs.

  234. your mom says:

    Squeeze play would be cool.

  235. Cy Pettitte says:

    Gardy!!!!

  236. Wheels says:

    Yes!!!

  237. Captain Turbo says:

    Always bet on gritty!

  238. Dela G says:

    and Gritt Gutner clears em!

  239. Mick taylor says:

    Is it not ironic that red sox fans luv David Ortiz even though he is a proven steroid cheat but hate arod so much

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      I’m not so sure it’s ironic but hypocritical definitely.

    • BrienTaylorsRookieCard says:

      It takes a modicum of intelligence to understand irony. So yea it’s lost on them.

    • CashmanNinja says:

      Let’s not forget about Manny Ramirez. I highly doubt he had only just started to take stuff after going to the Dodgers. I get that A-Rod looks like a turd, but other teams have stepped in shit, too.

  240. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Even on the easy stuff Stewart effs up.

  241. your mom says:

    A BIG FUCK YOU TO DEMPSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  242. Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Yeeeeeeeeeeees! Hahahahahahahahahahaha
    Who said best win of the season?

  243. Leg-End says:

    Come on!

  244. Lukaszek says:

    Gardy!!! Not your average singles hitter

  245. Dalek Jeter says:

    BRETT FUCKING GARDNER!!!!!!!

  246. 28 this year says:

    Fuck you Dempster!!!

  247. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    Well, that was amazing.

  248. Nathan says:

    bad decision sending brett

  249. OldYanksFan says:

    Bad bad badbadbadbadbad call by Girardi.

  250. Rolling Doughnut says:

    So like fuck you Dempster.

  251. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Gardner accepts your apologies.

  252. BrienTaylorsRookieCard says:

    Another sterling evening with John Sterling. “It’s a hit to the corner, it’s..the wall..uhh…gone..uhh…off the wall. Wait, yes the wall.” Is he blind now too?

  253. Cy Pettitte says:

    could it be, the HBP that turned the season around?

    • stuart a says:

      hope so. we will take anything we can…

      it made arod almost seem remotely sympathetic…. the piling on is over the top.

      i would not cheer him, nor would I boo him. he is a sad example of things…

  254. specialkid says:

    aaaaaaaaaaahahahahaha

  255. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Peña was talking to Girardi? Contact play so stupid.

  256. DERP says:

    Don’t they have Breslow and Thornton? Why would they bring in this ugly drunk?

  257. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    …Why, why, WHY did Gardner move?

  258. Brendan says:

    I think it was better now that Dumpster didnt get ejected.

  259. Mike P says:

    Gardner should forfeit his pay check… gardner this, Gardner that… If you can’t take failure and adversity don’t watch baseball. Go yanks!

  260. JGYank says:

    And we have the lead! Anyone have a problem with Gardner now? No? Good.

  261. yeayo says:

    Why don’t you have Ichiro bunt up the first base line?

  262. Kramerica Industries says:

    Seriously, C.C. better not be back out there in the 6th.

    Otherwise the lead will once again be short-lived.

  263. Eddard says:

    Last time they score 7 runs for CC and what did he do? Gave up 7 runs himself and they lost 8-7. They need to make this lead stick, no matter what.

  264. Elton Cod says:

    Not thrilled with that play call or Ichiro in general – but still, YEAH, FUCK YOU BOSTON. Hoping for a blow out including another A-Rod homerun leaving a big margin so that Joba can hit David Ortiz. The HBP can lead to an injury. With Ortiz out for the rest of the year, the Red Sox will go into freefall. They will not make the playoffs. The Yankees will. The HBP that turned the season around.

    These hopes are a little extravagant.

  265. specialkid says:

    i wish boston’s plane has a bad landing and all their players go on the 60 day DL.

  266. Mick taylor says:

    Hypothetical, what would the fallout have been if Derek jeter had tested positive for steroidsin 2003 like David Ortiz did. Would the media ignore it as they have with big poopie?

    • Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

      I think it would have gone the way of Andy Pettitte’s whole mini-scandal. Jeet fesses up, apologizes, and the world moves on because Jeter’s awesome.

    • Justin says:

      Actually I think if Jeter was on that list, they would’ve never leaked it. He’s too important to the business of baseball.

  267. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Hey, isn’t it nice to have a major league offense?

  268. Cy Pettitte says:

    need more runs, this game is probably not ending 7-6

  269. your mom says:

    CC can actually pick up the win. Amazing.

  270. Adam says:

    So if Joba comes in at some point, will his pitch still find a way to bean Youk?

  271. Kramerica Industries says:

    I cannot believe Sabathia back out there.

    Only allowed runs in every inning except the 2nd. I’m sure a one-run lead will hold here.

  272. Wheels says:

    Wow, staying with CC.

  273. Leg-End says:

    4 pitch walk, entirely predictable. Get him out already!

  274. BigBlueAL says:

    Have a feeling with as hot as Sori has been he is due to go on a 1 for 25 stretch.

  275. your mom says:

    Okay who’s fault is it that CC is STILL out there???????

  276. Captain Turbo says:

    Pull CC now!

  277. Dalek Jeter says:

    I really hope somebody is warming up in the bullpen, Even though besides Kelley, D-Rob, and Mo, the only person I trust got sent down.

  278. yeayo says:

    You got to be fucking kidding me. Why the fuck is CC still in there. And of course, he walks the lead off hitter.

  279. Wedge says:

    Why is he still pitching

  280. Cy Pettitte says:

    get CC out of there. He is gonna blow this.

  281. JobaWockeeZ says:

    The blind faith in CC is truly commendable and frustrating.

  282. your mom says:

    Ball 6…..

  283. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Why is CC still out there?

  284. Kramerica Industries says:

    I mean, I am not joking. I cannot believe Sabathia is still out there. This is some of the dumbest managing I’ve ever seen.

  285. specialkid says:

    want PEDSabathia back

  286. wedge says:

    cant score enough for this fat waste of space

  287. yeayo says:

    Truly frustrating. Lead off hitter on and 2-0 on the second hitter. This is fucking absurd. The Yankees are just begging to give up the lead here.

  288. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Haha, I must be hallucinating. CC can’t possibly be pitching right now. That would be beyond stupid, right?

  289. Eddard says:

    Do they want to win this ballgame? Why is CC still in this game? Where’s Kelley? Where’s Logan?

  290. Holy Ghost says:

    CC is still pitching? I guess the Yankees don’t want to win this game

  291. Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Get him out of there

  292. Jigga says:

    Seriously. Why isn’t Claiborne here?

  293. JGYank says:

    What is Pena thinking? No wonder why Brian Kenny protests so much against the win since CC get one right now despite his terrible outing.

  294. The Real Greg says:

    Can’t blame Girardi for this one. Unless thye are doing the Bobby Valentine thing

  295. yeayo says:

    Take him out now for the love of GOD.

  296. yeayo says:

    Pena must be reading Girardi’s binder.

  297. Wheels says:

    Sweet. pull him

  298. Dalek Jeter says:

    CC’s been terrible tonight, and most of the season, but damn that was a NASTY pitch to end the AB/night.

  299. your mom says:

    Nice pitch. Good job CC, you kept us in the game. . . . . . . .

  300. yeayo says:

    Wow what a surprise. CC is pulled after a 100 pitches.

  301. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Can’t figure the logic in sending CC put to start the inning.

  302. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Hell of a pitch there, dude. Okay, now take him out.

  303. Eddard says:

    Well he got Ellsbury and at least leaves with the lead intact. Now they can go to work with Kelley, Drob and Mo. I wouldn’t even bring in Logan unless it’s to drill Big Papi with the bases empty. They need a couple more runs if they want to bring in Jobber for one batter to drill someone in the head.

  304. pat says:

    Kelly seems like best case scenario for Mark Montgomery.

  305. Captain Turbo says:

    Plunk the troll!

  306. yeayo says:

    What an awful line from CC.

  307. your mom says:

    Oh, so that’s what good pitching looks like.

  308. specialkid says:

    win this game pleaseeee

  309. Wheels says:

    This is some game.

    • Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

      Seriously. Even if we lose (and believe me, I have no reservations about being “happy”, because I will be PISSED) it’s nice to be able to play competitive baseball again after giving up more than 3 runs. This is a genuinely great game.

  310. yeayo says:

    CC’s shitty line is preventing the Yankees from retaliating.

  311. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Annnnnnnd breathe. Man, that was a terrible decision putting CC out there.

  312. Captain Turbo says:

    So it’s Kelley for the 7th then Drob and Mo?

  313. BigBlueAL says:

    It was mentioned earlier tonight and would like to reiterate it again, this would easily be the best/funnest win of the season.

  314. your mom says:

    I’ve never heard of these Red Sox relievers. Please make me remember them for good reasons.

  315. yeayo says:

    Did anybody just lose audio on ESPNgo?

  316. your mom says:

    Did Nunez switch uniforms?

  317. pat says:

    F*cking atrocious that they have Schilling on this broadcast.

  318. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Pissing off red Sox fans is almost worth the 25 million.

  319. Adam says:

    With all the chaos is easy to overlook that ARod actually looks really comfortable up there.

    • Andy says:

      Yeah, although his much analyzed leg kick looks crazy high, which people who know more than I do about hitting say is not a good thing.

      • Dalek Jeter says:

        People who know more than I do about hitting say that you should stay back, stay still, and follow the ball with your head…and yet Ichiro Suzuki will probably be going to the hall of fame in the next 8 or so years.

  320. pat says:

    Arod could have spiked Pedroia there. Dang.

  321. your mom says:

    Please do something positive Nix.

  322. Rolling Doughnut says:

    ARod should have taken out Drew

  323. Dalek Jeter says:

    Granderson needs to do that more. He’s got the speed and power to be at least a 40/20 guy.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      It’s not a question about speed it’s a matter of instinct really. Or reading ito pitcher’s deliveries to get the best jump.

  324. your mom says:

    Nix is bad at baseball.

  325. Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    I see saltalafdseegtf fills the shoes of variety quite decently, stupid facial hair, switch (bad) hitter, really shittty throwing to the bases.

  326. BigBlueAL says:

    As annoying as it is watching Nunez play defense, offensively he is Jeter compared to Nix.

  327. Cuso says:

    Schilling: “Pedey”

    I just threw up in my mouth.

    Call him PEDey, that’d be funny.

  328. Cy Pettitte says:

    PH Reynolds here?

  329. your mom says:

    So 3 outcomes right? K, BB or HR?

  330. your mom says:

    Hated Reynolds as an Oriole, starting to like him now.

  331. Captain Turbo says:

    Hey, it’s like we have an offense.

  332. Shittyshittybangbang says:

    Ok, Braun wins douche bag of the millennia…, by a landslide !

  333. your mom says:

    Good try Stewart, like I said earlier, hit those weights damn it.

  334. Wheels says:

    fuckin sweet

  335. David N says:

    I am liking this Mark Reynolds guy.

  336. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    Just to be clear, it would be very dumb to hit Papi now. Might even have to wait until the next time they face the Sox, since they shouldn’t hit him if he comes up in the 9th in a 2 run game either.

  337. pat says:

    Stewie with warning track power.

    To LF in Fenway.

  338. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Stewie with that warning track power.

  339. Dela G says:

    Great job, mark!

  340. Adam says:

    Oh dear…reports that A-Rod paid for some of Tony Bosch’s legal fees?

  341. Wheels says:

    Come on Boone, hold it down.

  342. BigBlueAL says:

    Holding my breath with Logan in.

  343. your mom says:

    Big Potty Mouth.

  344. Dalek Jeter says:

    And there’s another f-bomb live on national tv by a red sox player.

  345. Dela G says:

    “FUCK”

    David Ortiz

  346. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    Watch it with the roid rage, Papi.

  347. pat says:

    Can’t wait for Ortiz to do something annoying.

  348. Cy Pettitte says:

    nice, fuck you ump. hope you choke on that ball.

  349. Cuso says:

    Intentional beaning of ump.

  350. BigBlueAL says:

    Even the umps hate Chris Stewart now.

  351. Dalek Jeter says:

    Karma’s a real mother fuck, ain’t it Blue?

  352. your mom says:

    Payback for the stupid early warnings?

  353. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    Is it wrong to joke that that’s the HBP they were waiting for?

  354. Cuso says:

    Ooh. Lookie here. Lots of Sawx cussing.

  355. Wheels says:

    You got to catch the ball Stewie.

  356. 28 this year says:

    Good of Logan and Stewart to go after the real idiot in the Dempster-ARod shit.

  357. Manny's BanWagon says:

    Payback’s a bitch O’Nora.

  358. pat says:

    Girardi definitely ROFL-ing in the dugout right now.

  359. Captain Turbo says:

    Nice DP!

  360. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Robbie has a Hell of an arm, man.

  361. Wheels says:

    Good job Boone.

  362. itsallhowuseeit says:

    Ortiz roid raging and of course Kruk and Shilling laughing it up..like “aint shrek cute” ffff these guys

  363. your mom says:

    Bunt Gardner bunt.

  364. Captain Turbo says:

    Dear Mr. Robertson, no Houdini tonight. Just get them out quickly.

  365. your mom says:

    “Bring this shit to me man!”

  366. your mom says:

    Thanks Frankie.

  367. your mom says:

    “That’s ball 4!.” No shit ump!

  368. Lukaszek says:

    What happened to the “warnings”? Or is that only in effect for the Yankees?

  369. Dela G says:

    ichi-fucking-ro

    what a bunt

  370. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Heh, I loved that the ump yelled “That’s ball four!” before he left.

  371. Get Phelps Up says:

    Wow, I can’t believe how many F bombs we’ve heard on this broadcast.

  372. Cuso says:

    Gorgeous bunt, by the way.

  373. Cuso says:

    Go yard to center, Robbie. Shut em up.

  374. pat says:

    Yanks torturing Salty.

    • Dalek Jeter says:

      How many games has it taken? Shit, they should be running and bunting on Salty like that one game later in Varitek’s career when they stole like 8 bases in a single game.

  375. John says:

    Nice, Ichiro

  376. Brian O’Nora, as written, the most commonly injured umpire. That sucks that I am right.

  377. John says:

    That sucks

  378. Manny's BanWagon says:

    If the Yankees bust this game open, somebody on the Red Sox better get drilled.

  379. itsallhowuseeit says:

    Shilling trying to elude to that pitch hitting the ump on purpose…yeah and what?

  380. Shittyshittybangbang says:

    If big enough lead, is there finally retaliation ?

  381. Manny's BanWagon says:

    The ticker on the bottom of the screen is like a battle between Arod and Braun for biggest sleaze bag of the year.

  382. your mom says:

    Tazawa’s put on a lot of weight these past couple of years.

  383. mike_h says:

    Remember last time ARod faced Tazawa in 2009….

  384. your mom says:

    LOL that sign. ARod = ALooser

  385. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    There’s already been poetic justice done here. Now let’s just piss on them.

  386. Austin's Bat says:

    SSS alert but ARod .304/.396/.478, and Cano .301/.384/.497.

  387. Nothing kills a crowd more than Alex Rodriguez reaching 1st base safely.

  388. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Ah, that sign is just made even better when you realize that “loser” was spelled wrong.

  389. your mom says:

    SLAM IT GRANDYMAN!!!!!!!

  390. Dalek Jeter says:

    He’s just SO GRITTY. He plays the game THE RIGHT WAY. Such a GOOD DEFENSIVE player because he plays SO HARD.

    Also, wow…that’s some bullshit hometown scorekeeper. Eduardo Nunez feels like he should have made that play.

    • Lukaszek says:

      I also love how nobody is going to complain about the scoring. A-Rod has no reason to complain, he gets a free hit. Tazawa doesn’t complain since nobody scores.

  391. Cuso says:

    That was better than the HR

  392. Wheels says:

    haha Pedroia

  393. Cy Pettitte says:

    hahahah that was amazing. Their god Pedroia can’t get A-Rod out.

  394. Dela G says:

    attaboy A-rod!!!

    fuck yeah

  395. Gonzo says:

    Who enjoyed that Pedroia bobble more, me or you?

  396. Charles says:

    A HIT?!?!? That was a hit? Jesus christ that’s probably the worst favoritism towards a home player I’ve ever seen.

  397. Cuso says:

    No ESPn commentary about what a joke that was, only that Pedroia “would be the first to tell ya” bullshit.

    If it was in NY and that was Cano, they’d be repeating home cooking constantly.

  398. Ryan says:

    BREAKING: A-ROD suspected of using witchcraft on Pedroia

  399. Cy Pettitte says:

    they could have made this game a lot more enjoyable by blowing it open there

  400. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    This whole game is just soooooooo Yankees/Red Sox.

  401. Eddard says:

    If that was a hit by A-Rod then Eduardo Nuney hasn’t made an error all season. That’s a joke.

  402. pat says:

    LOL ESPN shows the Prtiz strikeout and they didn’t edit out the loud FUCK he yelled.

  403. your mom says:

    Has Mo ever intentionally beaned a batter before?

  404. Cy Pettitte says:

    they’re watching King of the Hill on the TVs with the game on right in front of them? that’s odd

  405. your mom says:

    When DRob is mixing in curves he’s flat out nasty. Fuck you Middlebrooks.

  406. Dela G says:

    that middlebrooks foul scared the shit out of me

  407. Rolling Doughnut says:

    One curve too many.

  408. Dalek Jeter says:

    Cleveland still had the best gift, distant second probably the rocking chair.

  409. Adam says:

    Wow, nasty.

  410. Dela G says:

    chris stewart sucks so much as a “defensive” catcher

  411. Luis Castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    My brand new pack of luckies is almost finished… That’s what a yankees-sox game do to me.

  412. Bo Knows says:

    robertson must have been pissed, he obviously went for the “fuck these guys” and made them look stupid

  413. Dela G says:

    david, fucking, robinson

  414. VT Yankee Fan says:

    All three third strikes on curves that inning?

  415. Cuso says:

    More swearing please. It is nourishment.

  416. Bo Knows says:

    this is the 3rd batter, seriously fuck those guys==

  417. Honestly surprised no one has been ejected from the White Sox. But then again, it is this crew.

  418. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Now Nix gets hit. NIX. ARod put the whammy on the Sox. It’s all downhill from here.

  419. Cuso says:

    Not putting it by them that they’d be trying to bait the Yanks to hit someone in the 9th so they can get a base runner.

    Maybe too much conspiracy theory, though….

    Maybe

  420. Cuso says:

    Wow. What a late high strike call.

  421. Dela G says:

    attaboy chris stewart! sorry i shat on you earlier

  422. Wheels says:

    Stewart drives in Nix! ha

  423. Cuso says:

    Mega Ef Yoo right there

  424. Captain Turbo says:

    RBI by Stewart? WTF?

  425. pat says:

    STEWIEEEEEE TRUE YANKEE

  426. Dela G says:

    jesus christ ichiro DESTROYED that ball

    what an out

  427. itsallhowuseeit says:

    Big run

  428. Cy Pettitte says:

    4 hit batters. this is ridiculous.

  429. Captain Turbo says:

    Throw the pitcher out!

  430. Wheels says:

    motherfucker

  431. SDB says:

    Stewart with an RBI? Was that a sleep-deprived hallucination?

  432. Anderson Silva says:

    another HBP, can they eject anyone?

  433. Probably HR in Yankee Stadium (Ichiro’s hit?)

  434. SDB says:

    Another fucking HBP?

    Fuck this Red Sox lineup. I remember saying a few months ago on here that for once, I found them less annoying/more tolerable than the Orioles. I take that back.

  435. Bo Knows says:

    This is fuckin crazy, that’s it hit everyone wearing that ugly red

    You get beaned, YOU get beaned Every Boston Muthaf#$%a gets beaned

  436. Dela G says:

    i’m sorry, this is fucking ridiculous

    4th player hit

  437. Cuso says:

    How about because it WAS inside?

  438. Lukaszek says:

    Ok, it’s ridiculous how many Yankee players they are beaning today

  439. Cuso says:

    I love how in the silent crowd there’s random guys that “try” to start a Let’s Go Red Sox chant as if starting a chant to Fenway would be their 15 minutes of fame.

    It reminds me of the guy that was obsessed with starting a slow clap in “Not Another Teen Movie.”

  440. Dela G says:

    well that bounced before hitting him, oh well the yanks were due

  441. Nathan says:

    Cano has got to be one of the most laid back guys in the box. He does the whole Barry Bonds deal of taking the pitch right as it comes out of the pitcher’s hand.

  442. forensic says:

    Three Yankees have been hit since A-Rod with no pitcher ejections.

    What was the point of the warnings again???

  443. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Well Alfonso’s regressing to the mean.

  444. WTF did the umpire warn the benches for? There have been three (3!!!!!) hit Yankees since the warning.

  445. Anderson Silva says:

    5-21 with RISP and 13 LOB, that’s really bad. But at the same time, it feels good to have a real offense again, capable of getting 17 hits against a good team.

    • Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

      How is that really bad? That’s like one hit below league average with RISP.

      • Lukaszek says:

        Generally in games with 15+ hits, the rivals’ pitching is bad, so you expect that your offense does better than “league average” against the bad pitching

  446. BigBlueAL says:

    Glad its still a save situation, let Mo end the blown save streak against the Red Sox.

  447. Kramerica Industries says:

    Mo can’t blow a three-run lead, can he?

  448. Kiko Jones says:

    Mo can make up for those three blown saves in a row tonight.

  449. Justin says:

    Alex is Player of the Game tonight. What irony

  450. BigBlueAL says:

    Shouldve hit him.

  451. Captain Turbo says:

    Fucking cheater gets a hit.

  452. your mom says:

    Best win this year.

  453. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    It can’t just be easy with these teams.

  454. Captain Turbo says:

    Bring in Mo!

  455. BigBlueAL says:

    Never easy in this freaking park.

  456. pat says:

    Gomes taking some big hacks.

  457. Anderson Silva says:

    Mo doesn’t look right yet. Comon Mo

  458. Kramerica Industries says:

    Oh come the hell on Mo.

  459. Dalek Jeter says:

    Most satisfying win of the season.

  460. Nathan says:

    Man Mo’s command hasn’t been as sharp lately.

  461. Captain Turbo says:

    Fuck. Now I can breathe.

  462. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Just like they planned it.

  463. BigBlueAL says:

    Probably the worst CC and Mo have ever looked combining for the win and save. But we’ll gladly take it.

  464. Rolling Doughnut says:

    ARGHHH. Mo has not been sharp lately.

  465. SDB says:

    Best win of the season.

    Once again, FUCK DEMPSTER.

  466. Luis Castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball) says:

    Yes BWOTS.

  467. Wheels says:

    Awesome win. Pumped

  468. your mom says:

    Thank god we have a good pen.

  469. Captain Turbo says:

    Yes, the Red Sox will go to the playoffs, but they will go down in flames. Book it.

  470. Widget says:

    Suck it ESPN your lovable dirt dogs lost to the big bad cheating yankees. Fuck the red sox, they are not that good.

  471. Anderson Silva says:

    finally! that pitch was right there, middle of the plate.

  472. Get Phelps Up says:

    Awesome game. Fuck those Boston douchebags

  473. Dela G says:

    great win

  474. Eddard says:

    Good has prevailed against evil tonight. What Dumpster did was classless and bush league. He should be suspended for 15 games but MLB won’t do a damn thing. Home plate ump was probably in on it. And watch Girardi get suspended for swinging at an ump. It sparked the club and got them the W. Now they need to take at least 3/4 from Toronto and shave another game or two off the deficit.

  475. Improbable Island's Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR) says:

    Big Papi is such an asshole.

  476. forensic says:

    Awesome win!

    Suck it Dumpster!

  477. BigBlueAL says:

    Great fucking win.

  478. Dalek Jeter says:

    Wow…Schilling looks fucking terrible. He looks like he’s aged about 20 years since he retired.

  479. ClusterDuck says:

    It looks to me that they might have been throwing at Gardner too in that last AB.

    Gardner was pretty vocal after the A-Rod plunk.

  480. Justin says:

    I’m watching Girardi’s post-game interview and he’s PISSED about the 1st A-Rod at bat.

  481. Steinbrenner's Ghost says:

    Ryan Dempster’s twitter account @RyanDempsterFDN

    Give ‘em a Bronx cheer
