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.

Williams and Jagielo go deep on day of walk-offs
Update: Nunez leaves game with tight hamstring
  • forensic

    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???

    • trr

      Please don’t me started on them. Thank God it’s preseason

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Well you certainly don’t follow the Giants as much as the Yankees..

      • forensic

        Because I didn’t realize Ross was back? I don’t really bother following the NFL offseason anymore.

  • Darren

    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.

  • Kramerica Industries

    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.

  • Kevin G.

    This game ends u/o 12:30?

    • trr

      Over.

  • trr

    Spoiler, Schmoiler.
    Just win!

  • Kevin G.

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

    • Manny’s BanWagon

      Why 4 walks?

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

        The eating some hat stuff?

      • Strat

        …’cause hats are yummy.

  • BigBlueAL

    Curt Schilling in the booth?? FML

    • Dalek Jeter

      …hooray

  • Karl Krawfid

    Gonna turn this shit off.

    Fuck ESPN. Fuck Shilling.

    Gonna chill on this Sunday.

    • WhittakerWalt

      Very relevant typo.

      • Kiko Jones

        Yes, indeed. Typo is apropos.

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Attaboy CC walk the leadoff guy.

  • your mom

    Good start by Feces.

  • mason

    man cc looks like crap

  • BigBlueAL

    Nunez has less range than Jeter right now.

    • Rolling Doughnut

      He got there in plenty of time, just misplayed it.

  • mason

    not only has he lost velo he has no command

  • your mom

    Please no Grand salami here.

  • Wheels

    Ugh

  • Kramerica Industries

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

  • mason

    almost ready to throw in the towel?

  • Cy Pettitte

    I really dread Sabathia starts.

  • your mom

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

  • Kramerica Industries

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

    • Winter

      He can refuse a send down. You hav to either keep him or cut him. And you don’t want to cut him.

      • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

        Phantom injury, then.

    • your mom

      What if we trade him to a team with a bigger park since he’s homer prone like Hughes now?

  • your mom

    Why doesn’t Nava have a beard too?

  • mason

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

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • 28 this year

    Yay we get an extended David Huff appearance today

  • Wj

    Pretty amazing we are over 500 without a gm

  • BigBlueAL

    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

      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.

      • BigBlueAL

        That wouldve been an easy force out. An average MLB SS makes that play easy.

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • Manny’s BanWagon

    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.

  • your mom

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

  • Kramerica Industries

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

  • Cy Pettitte

    Dempster is fucking clown

  • your mom

    Fight!!! Fight!!!!

  • Kramerica Industries

    FUCK YOU DEMSPTER

  • Charles

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

    • Captain Turbo

      Sterling just said, “Do they (the Boston fans) know about David Ortiz?”

      What a bunch of hayseeds.

  • Jay

    I LOVE IT!!!!!

  • your mom

    CC better bean someone’s fucking ass now!

  • Dalek Jeter

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

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

      Joe is right, that’s BS

      • Dalek Jeter

        Absolutely, Dempster should have been warned right after the first pitch and tossed after the 3-0.

  • Captain Turbo

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

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

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

  • Dalek Jeter

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

  • Charles

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

  • BigBlueAL

    Horrible job by the plate ump.

  • 28 this year

    Fuck Dempster

  • Wheels

    Good job Grandy

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

    • Dalek Jeter

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

    • Kramerica Industries

      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.

      • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

        Wow. That is such bullshit.

  • Wheels

    Nuney

  • Kramerica Industries

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

    • Captain Turbo

      This.

    • Mick taylor

      Brilliant comment. Without manny and big poopie, the curse still lives.

  • Get Phelps Up

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

  • Holy Ghost

    How does he not get ejected after that?

    Way to go Grandy!

  • your mom

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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • SDB

    Ha. A-Rod scores. Fuck you Dumpster!

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

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

    • your mom

      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.

  • Mick taylor

    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 .

  • Kevin G.

    Joe Girardi is a scary dude when mad.

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

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

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

  • yeayo

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

  • Captain Turbo

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

  • mason

    thts bullshit…benchs get warned and now we cant retaliate

    • Captain Turbo

      I bet CC retaliates anyway. He’s old school.

    • Lukaszek

      That is an absolute bullshit

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

    • your mom

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

      • OldYanksFan

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

      • Lukaszek

        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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    No, really, get CC out of there.

  • your mom

    LOL, that was a rather feminine throw.

  • Lukaszek

    Feels like there is a brawl in the cooking

    • Wheels

      Let’s go CC.

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

    Run scissorhands!!

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

      Atta boy

    • Captain Turbo

      Did he lose his helmet?

      /rhetorical

  • SDB

    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.

  • Kramerica Industries

    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.

  • Eddard

    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.

  • Kevin G.
    • BigBlueAL

      Girardi would easily kick Dempster’s ass.

    • Mr. Roth

      lol That’s pretty much the same thing I said while I was watching.

  • Kramerica Industries

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

    • your mom

      Don’t get your hopes too high though.

    • Dalek Jeter

      Agreed. I hope we win by 1 run and the Red Sox miss the playoffs by 1 game.

      • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

        Really? I want to crush them now.

  • Wedge

    Gardner must be fined for that

  • Michael Allen

    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.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • Wj

    Joba make yourself useful and hit someone in the head

    • Wheels

      ha

    • stuart a

      correct. he is the guy to do it…

    • Kevin G.

      Trade Youkillis back to the Red Sox

  • your mom

    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.

  • JGYank

    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.

  • mike_h

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

    • Mr. Roth

      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.

      • your mom

        Which team stands to lose the most if Ortiz or CC is injured in a brawl?

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

      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

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

  • stuart a

    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

      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.

  • your mom

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

    • Captain Turbo

      The Mets.

    • Lukaszek

      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

  • Mr. Roth

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

  • Jake

    Hit the troll not big sloppy

  • your mom

    Oh Robbie, right down the pipe with that slider.

  • Mr. Roth

    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.

    • your mom

      They should do a 360 spin like that Korean player.

      • Mr. Roth

        lol exactly!

    • Lukaszek

      I really hope so too. Damn, where’s Yoenis Cespedes when you need him?

    • Mr. Roth

      Maybe ride the bat pony, Happy Gilmore style.

  • your mom

    Bunt Sori, bunt! JK.

  • Mick taylor

    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 .

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

    • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

      (Meant to say Sori.)

  • JGYank

    Hopefully Arod hits a liner off dempster.

  • Wheels

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

    • your mom

      It’s okay. With him in, we have a chance.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • Dalek Jeter

    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.

  • BigBlueAL

    Go yard Alex.

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

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

  • your mom

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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    If he strikes out that would be so disheartening.

  • mike_h

    yankees take the lead

  • Wheels

    3 fucking 2.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Captain Turbo

    Good job, A-Rod. Fuck Boston.

  • Winter

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

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

      They are Red Sox fans, they are stupid when it comes to baseball.

      • Captain Turbo

        They are Red Sox fans, they are stupid when it comes to baseball.

        Fixed that for ya.

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

          Hah, I knew some of you would be doing that, thanks

  • Kevin G.

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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • RBC

    Good. RBI for Alex.

  • mason

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

    • your mom

      No head shots please.

    • BFDeal

      There is never a need to purposely throw at the helmet.

  • Get Phelps Up

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

  • Kramerica Industries

    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

      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

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

    No, no CC not down the middle.

  • stuart a

    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.

    • Alkaline

      I have to say, +1 to your comments the past couple months.

    • Captain Turbo

      Wasn’t that a line from Bull Durham? “Don’t think, meat.”

    • Dalek Jeter

      stuart is borderline in support of A-Rod. I…I have no words. Just at all. I am absolutely speechless.

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

        You can thank dumpster, Selig and all those clowns that are just using Rodriguez as the poster boy of their hypocritical crusade.

        • RBC

          +1 for you. Include Bill Madden in the clown list.

          What these folks don’t realize is if they keep piling on A-Rod, it will eventually backfire.

  • Captain Turbo

    Hit Big Sloppy!

  • your mom

    Fuckin WP.

  • BigBlueAL

    Lead lasted longer than I expected.

  • Manny’s BanWagon

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

  • your mom

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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • your mom

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

  • Wheels

    Great throw

  • JGYank

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

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

    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.

  • your mom

    Okay, now steal a fucking base.

    • your mom

      Any day now Nunie……

  • JGYank

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

    • your mom

      I don’t give a shit, as long as we win this game.

  • Wheels

    Stupid stadium, just a single out of that

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

    Run Eddie!

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

      Piece of cake with saltalamsgahandjsb behind the dish.

  • Kramerica Industries

    Yeah, and you can go fuck yourself, Randy.

    • JGYank

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

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek/ Roadgeek Adam

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

    • Winter

      No response yet. Give it a few innings.

    • your mom

      We’re still in the game too.

    • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

      And also because it’s a pretty stupid idea for CC to put MORE men on base, considering how he’s pitching.

  • your mom

    Shit Stewart, better hit them weights this offseason.

  • Here Comes the Pizza

    And there goes Nuney’s helmet.

  • JGYank

    And the Espn bias begins with thrashing the Yanks.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • your mom

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

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

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

  • Wedge

    Gardner should forfeit his game check

  • Wheels

    Denzel down with the Yanks

  • mason

    typical redsox..it takes 3 tries to do anything

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    Holy shit does CC suck. This is painful.

  • mason

    ok cc u suck just drill some1

  • your mom

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

  • BigBlueAL

    Another leadoff rocket for a double. Sigh.

  • Wedge

    Cc is phil hughes

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

  • Eddard

    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.

  • Wedge

    Right down the middle on 0-2

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    I hate watching CC pitch so much.

  • Wheels

    Fuck CC, wtf

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • your mom

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

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

    Pathetic Sabathia

  • Captain Turbo

    OK, now CC can hit someone.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    Hey guys, Toy Story 3 is on!

  • Kramerica Industries

    #obligatoryhomer

    Thanks for trying, once again, C.C.

  • OldYanksFan

    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.

  • BigBlueAL

    Embarrassing.

  • Wedge

    Cc is just a pussy

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

    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?

  • Mick taylor

    I would trade cc for Josh hamilton

  • stuart a

    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…

    • your mom

      CC hands down.

  • your mom

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

  • TCMiller30

    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.

  • OldYanksFan

    CC now has a 4.82 ERA.

  • your mom

    LOL. Good try Farrell you tool!

  • stuart a

    john farrel lieing thru his teeth

    repulsive.. insane.. insane..

  • Wheels

    Shut up Farrell

  • Kramerica Industries

    Farrell is full of shit.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • BigBlueAL

    Great inning by the offense.

    • Gonzalo Hiram

      Of course the offense is going to get tired of watching CC like that.

  • Gonzalo Hiram

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

    • stuart a

      of course…

      these long deals almost never work out.

      CC’s first deal was fine he was 28 or less..

  • your mom

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

    • Kramerica Industries

      You’re right. A liner hasn’t drilled him yet.

  • stuart a

    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.

    • Captain Turbo

      What did Farrel say?

      • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

        He said that he didn’t think it was intentional. I mean, obviously he was going to say that, but it was also obviously a lie.

        • Captain Turbo

          Fuck him then.

      • your mom

        When asked about Dempster hitting Arod he initially stuttered and then went off rambling about Dempster trying to set up his FB on the inside or some shit like that.

  • JGYank

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

  • Anderson Silva

    Cc is shit.

    • your mom

      So would you say he’s Feces?

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

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

    • Rolling Doughnut

      Take Feces out ffsake.

  • your mom

    Good job Scissorhands.

  • Wedge

    Cc is the biggest coward pussy

  • Wheels

    Nunez sucks

  • Wheels

    Nunez sucks.

  • your mom

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

  • Kramerica Industries

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

  • your mom

    Yeah, Fuck you Gomes.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Wheels

    Oh CC.

  • your mom

    Salty’s going deep isn’t he?

  • Wedge

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

  • Shaina

    CC Shitbathia

    • UncleArgle

      It’s Feces Shitbathia get it right

  • Captain Turbo

    Nice catch, Nuney, you hack!

  • Mick taylor

    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.

    • Manny’s BanWagon

      Bonds did it and then some.

  • your mom

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

  • Kramerica Industries

    Unbelievable.

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

  • your mom

    Please retire CC, you suck.

  • WhittakerWalt

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

  • Cy Pettitte

    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.

  • Captain Turbo

    Fuuuck.

  • Wheels

    Hard to win when they score 6 runs, CC.

  • Wedge

    Petrified to throw a strike

  • ArchStanton

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

  • Eddard

    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

      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.

  • UncleArgle

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

  • stuart a

    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…

  • your mom

    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?

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

  • Wedge

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

  • Lukaszek

    SUCK ON THAT, RYAN DUMPSTER

  • your mom

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

  • RBC

    WONDERFUL!!!

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Dalek Jeter

    A-ROD

  • Holy Ghost

    Fuckin A-Rod!

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Best hotdogging ever.

  • JGYank

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

  • Cy Pettitte

    A-BOMB!!! fuck you Dempster

  • Captain Turbo

    Fuck yeah, A-Rod!

  • JGYank

    Attaboy Arod!

  • Wheels

    nice

  • pat

    Holy shit did he just do the Ortiz thing?

    • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

      Hell yeah he did. And it was awesome.

  • yeayo

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

    A-Bomb!

  • Wheels

    This shit isn’t over.

  • your mom

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

  • your mom

    Need a Loverbay Bomb.

  • Holy Ghost

    It looked like it was over 450ft

  • pat

    Nunez just hurt himself.

  • Joe C

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

  • Captain Turbo

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

    • stuart a

      nope. he is talented but rocks for brains…

      • OldYanksFan

        Melky Nunez.

  • The Lime

    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?

    • Manny’s BanWagon

      Everyone hates a rat I guess.

      • The Lime

        Where’s the evidence? If it’s there, I completely agree.

        • Manny’s BanWagon

          60 minutes apparently has it. Be patient, it’ll be released.

    • OldYanksFan

      Really… especially when there are still dozens (or more) of players still juicing.

      In 2011, Ellsbury had a 146 OPS+ with 32 HRs.
      In all his other years, his OPS+ is under 106, and his previous HR high was 9.

      Anything unusual there?

  • Wedge

    Have to pinch hit

  • nsalem

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

    • stuart a

      nespn, what do you expect.

      can they get the camera up arods nose…

      leave the fuckin guy alone.

    • RBC

      ESPN has always been an anti A-Rod commercial, even when there’s no A-Rod controversy.

  • Cy Pettitte

    PH for Stewart. this is a huge AB.

  • your mom

    LMFAO Dempster. Walked the worst hitter ever.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Mick taylor

    I. Would still trade cc for Josh Hamilton

  • Dela G

    A walk to chris stewart?

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

    • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

      Ask and you shall receive

  • Cy Pettitte

    walking Stewart on 4 pitches…lol.

    • Rolling Doughnut

      Kind of like giving up an 0-2 double to Saltalamacchia.

  • your mom

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

    • your mom

      Glad I’m not the manager. LOL.

    • nsalem

      you’re a real genius

      • your mom

        I like that movie.

  • Captain Turbo

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

    • JobaWockeeZ

      He normally would be he sucks so much to give free baserunners nowadays.

  • Wheels

    Gardner needs to redeem himself for those shitty ABs.

    • stuart a

      he did. big time….

    • Lukaszek

      Reverse jinx right here

  • your mom

    Squeeze play would be cool.

    • pat

      F*CK YOUR SQUEEZE PLAY

      • your mom

        This.

  • Cy Pettitte

    Gardy!!!!

  • Wheels

    Yes!!!

  • Captain Turbo

    Always bet on gritty!

  • Dela G

    and Gritt Gutner clears em!

  • Mick taylor

    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

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

    • BrienTaylorsRookieCard

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

    • CashmanNinja

      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.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Even on the easy stuff Stewart effs up.

  • your mom

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

  • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

    Yeeeeeeeeeeees! Hahahahahahahahahahaha
    Who said best win of the season?

  • Leg-End

    Come on!

  • Lukaszek

    Gardy!!! Not your average singles hitter

  • Dalek Jeter

    BRETT FUCKING GARDNER!!!!!!!

  • 28 this year

    Fuck you Dempster!!!

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Well, that was amazing.

  • Nathan

    bad decision sending brett

  • OldYanksFan

    Bad bad badbadbadbadbad call by Girardi.

  • Rolling Doughnut

    So like fuck you Dempster.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    Gardner accepts your apologies.

  • BrienTaylorsRookieCard

    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?

    • VT Yankee Fan

      He actually is very vision impaired. Not a joke.

  • Cy Pettitte

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

    • stuart a

      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…

  • specialkid

    aaaaaaaaaaahahahahaha

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Peña was talking to Girardi? Contact play so stupid.

  • DERP

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

    • stuart a

      thornton is hurt. breslow pitched yesterday maybe saving him for later in the game.

      who knows..

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    …Why, why, WHY did Gardner move?

  • Brendan

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

  • Mike P

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

    • OldYanksFan

      Was probably not Gritner’s call.

      • Mike P

        Comment went through a bit late, was talking about the triple. Still valid though

  • JGYank

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

    • Captain Turbo

      Yes. I wish he’d grow his hair out. So there.

  • yeayo

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

  • Kramerica Industries

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

    Otherwise the lead will once again be short-lived.

  • Eddard

    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.

  • Elton Cod

    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.

    • OldYanksFan

      … just a little…

    • specialkid

      i wish he gets beaned in the helmet and gets concussed.. a career ending concussion.

      • your mom

        I might be trollish, immature, what have you, but come on man…………

        • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

          When “your mom” is calling you out for being a troll, you KNOW you have problems.

      • Elton Cod

        Now that’s a bit much. We’re not the Red Sox, here. Just injure him for the year.

    • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

      I like them

    • Captain Turbo

      Let’s not wish for injuries on the other team, guys. That’s what those wife-beaters in beantown do.

      • stuart a

        correct. never wish for injuries. EVER

      • Kiko Jones

        Amen, brothers. Let’s not stoop to that level.

        That said, is it wrong of me to want to hire a couple of Jason Giambi-sized goons to make Sux fans take their hats off in NYC? (It just sickens me to see them parade around town when our peeps are constantly harassed out there.) No violence, just intimidation. Still bad?

  • specialkid

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

  • Mick taylor

    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)

      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

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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

    • Captain Turbo

      You have no idea.

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • your mom

    CC can actually pick up the win. Amazing.

  • Adam

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

  • Kramerica Industries

    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.

  • Wheels

    Wow, staying with CC.

  • Leg-End

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

  • BigBlueAL

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

    • stuart a

      would not be shocking. look at the back of his card, thats who he is..

  • your mom

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

  • Captain Turbo

    Pull CC now!

  • Dalek Jeter

    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.

  • yeayo

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

  • Wedge

    Why is he still pitching

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • JobaWockeeZ

    The blind faith in CC is truly commendable and frustrating.

    • BigBlueAL

      Its almost as if its in his contract that he has to throw at least 100 pitches every start.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Clearly CC is not himself. They should be saving and limiting his pitch count not fucking abusing the man.

  • your mom

    Ball 6…..

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Why is CC still out there?

  • Kramerica Industries

    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.

  • specialkid

    want PEDSabathia back

  • wedge

    cant score enough for this fat waste of space

  • yeayo

    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.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • Eddard

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

  • Holy Ghost

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

  • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

    Get him out of there

  • Jigga

    Seriously. Why isn’t Claiborne here?

    • Winter

      Because he was sent down?

      • Captain Turbo

        D’oh! Joba’ed!

      • Jigga

        No kidding. Why was he sent down is what I’m saying. Hence “why isn’t he here”

  • JGYank

    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.

  • The Real Greg

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

  • yeayo

    Take him out now for the love of GOD.

  • yeayo

    Pena must be reading Girardi’s binder.

  • Wheels

    Sweet. pull him

  • Dalek Jeter

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

  • your mom

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

  • yeayo

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

    • Cy Pettitte

      he hadn’t thrown 100 pitches yet tonight.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • Eddard

    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.

  • pat

    Kelly seems like best case scenario for Mark Montgomery.

  • Captain Turbo

    Plunk the troll!

  • yeayo

    What an awful line from CC.

  • your mom

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

  • specialkid

    win this game pleaseeee

  • Wheels

    This is some game.

    • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

      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.

  • yeayo

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

    • Captain Turbo

      They will eventually. It might not be this game.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

    • Rolling Doughnut

      +1000

  • Captain Turbo

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

    • BigBlueAL

      Have a feeling we will be seeing Logan at some point in the 7th if not to start it.

    • Jigga

      Maybe Logan for Ortiz? Idk. I’d go with Kelley myself though.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • your mom

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

  • yeayo

    Did anybody just lose audio on ESPNgo?

  • your mom

    Did Nunez switch uniforms?

  • pat

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

    • SDB

      Hey, he needs a job. Can’t pay off Rhode Island with unemployment.

  • JobaWockeeZ

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

    • Captain Turbo

      It definitely is. But it’s not my money.

  • Adam

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

    • Andy

      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

        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.

  • pat

    Arod could have spiked Pedroia there. Dang.

    • pat

      Oh it was Drew. NVM.

  • your mom

    Please do something positive Nix.

    • Captain Turbo

      He does something every game. Didn’t you know?

    • Wheels

      yeah right

  • Rolling Doughnut

    ARod should have taken out Drew

    • mike_h

      no way he slides feet first after 2 hip surgeries unless its Game 7 of the World Series…though yes he should have

  • Dalek Jeter

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

    • JobaWockeeZ

      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.

  • your mom

    Nix is bad at baseball.

  • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

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

    • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

      ‘Varitek

  • BigBlueAL

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

    • Winter

      Wait, if Nunez compared to Nix looks like Jeter, what does Jeter compared to Nix look like?

      • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

        Dirk Diggler

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Schilling: “Pedey”

    I just threw up in my mouth.

    Call him PEDey, that’d be funny.

    • Dalek Jeter

      I stopped listening closely to the broadcast a while ago, but in Schilling’s defense he came down hard on Dempster and the Umpire for the bullshit in the first inning.

      • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

        Ok. You’ve changed my mind. I love Curt Schilling now.

  • Cy Pettitte

    PH Reynolds here?

    • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

      Sure

    • Winter

      You have to.

    • pat

      I like how you think.

    • Rolling Doughnut

      yes

    • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

      There you go

  • your mom

    So 3 outcomes right? K, BB or HR?

  • your mom

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

    • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek/ Roadgeek Adam

      Amazing how that happens.

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek/ Roadgeek Adam

    PH win.

  • Captain Turbo

    Hey, it’s like we have an offense.

  • Shittyshittybangbang

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

  • your mom

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

  • Wheels

    fuckin sweet

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Atta boy Mark!

  • David N

    I am liking this Mark Reynolds guy.

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    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.

    • Luis Castillo (not the one who dropped the ball)

      Agreed, a K is enough.

  • pat

    Stewie with warning track power.

    To LF in Fenway.

    • your mom

      I guess it’s safe to say he’s not on PEDs.

    • BigBlueAL

      He would have to hit from 3B to reach the Green Monster.

    • Captain Turbo

      Laughs. I see what you did there.

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Stewie with that warning track power.

  • Dela G

    Great job, mark!

  • Adam

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

    • BigBlueAL

      Yeah, just saw it on ESPN.com:

      http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/st.....tell-lines

    • Justin

      Its now time for the media to start backing up their stories with physical evidence. Apparently Outside the Lines saw the documents; its now time for these media outlets to start showing them.

  • Wheels

    Come on Boone, hold it down.

  • BigBlueAL

    Holding my breath with Logan in.

    • your mom

      I do that when he inherits runners. That being said, he needs to go after GOmes. WTF?

  • your mom

    Big Potty Mouth.

    • your mom

      Myself included…….FUCK YOU ORTIZ!!!!!!

  • Dalek Jeter

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

  • Dela G

    “FUCK”

    David Ortiz

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Watch it with the roid rage, Papi.

  • pat

    Can’t wait for Ortiz to do something annoying.

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Siddown Slop

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Intentional beaning of ump.

  • BigBlueAL

    Even the umps hate Chris Stewart now.

  • Dalek Jeter

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

  • your mom

    Payback for the stupid early warnings?

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

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

    • your mom

      No, but I hope someone else still gets plunked the next time we play.

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Ooh. Lookie here. Lots of Sawx cussing.

  • Wheels

    You got to catch the ball Stewie.

  • 28 this year

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

  • Manny’s BanWagon

    Payback’s a bitch O’Nora.

  • Captain Turbo

    Nice DP!

    Good job Boone.

  • itsallhowuseeit

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

    • your mom

      Ortiz raging makes this game even more enjoyable.

  • your mom

    Bunt Gardner bunt.

  • Captain Turbo

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

  • your mom

    “Bring this shit to me man!”

  • your mom

    Thanks Frankie.

  • your mom

    “That’s ball 4!.” No shit ump!

  • Lukaszek

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

    • Adam

      It was a curve. Doesn’t count for something clearly accidental.

  • Dela G

    ichi-fucking-ro

    what a bunt

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • Get Phelps Up

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

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Gorgeous bunt, by the way.

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Go yard to center, Robbie. Shut em up.

  • pat

    Yanks torturing Salty.

    • Dalek Jeter

      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.

  • John

    Nice, Ichiro

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

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

  • John

    That sucks

  • Manny’s BanWagon

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

  • itsallhowuseeit

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

  • Shittyshittybangbang

    If big enough lead, is there finally retaliation ?

    • mike_h

      retaliation at this point would be a win….keep it classy NY

      • Manny’s BanWagon

        Hell with that. Eye for an eye.

    • Eddard

      Yes, but it has to be Joba. If they hit someone now it will be intentional and MLB will suspend the reliever. That’s why if CC did it he wouldn’t miss any starts. Now that it’s a reliever you don’t want an important guy to miss 4-5 games.

    • Wheels

      I think just winning the game would be cool. Retaliate some other time.

      • Adam

        Honestly, make them sweat it. Keep their hitters on their toes in upcoming games.

  • Manny’s BanWagon

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

  • your mom

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

    • Bo Knows

      a diet consisting of nothing but beer and chicken will do do that to you

  • mike_h

    Remember last time ARod faced Tazawa in 2009….

  • your mom

    LOL that sign. ARod = ALooser

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • Austin’s Bat

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

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

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

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

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

  • your mom

    SLAM IT GRANDYMAN!!!!!!!

  • Dalek Jeter

    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

      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.

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    That was better than the HR

  • Wheels

    haha Pedroia

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • Dela G

    attaboy A-rod!!!

    fuck yeah

  • Gonzo

    Who enjoyed that Pedroia bobble more, me or you?

  • Charles

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

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    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.

  • Ryan

    BREAKING: A-ROD suspected of using witchcraft on Pedroia

  • Cy Pettitte

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

    • Wheels

      indeed

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    This whole game is just soooooooo Yankees/Red Sox.

    • your mom

      Just wait til someone blows the lead and we go to extras. . . . . . .

      • Captain Turbo

        Shut your mouth, woman.

      • Wheels

        dude….

      • Wheels

        fuck man, don’t say that shit

        • your mom

          I got your point the 1st time. My bad.

  • Eddard

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

  • pat

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

    • Bo Knows

      They know the boston audience, hears that word 83 times an hour

  • your mom

    Has Mo ever intentionally beaned a batter before?

  • Cy Pettitte

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

    • your mom

      And so are people from Boston.

  • your mom

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

  • Dela G

    that middlebrooks foul scared the shit out of me

  • Rolling Doughnut

    One curve too many.

  • Dalek Jeter

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

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

    Barely fair.

  • Adam

    Wow, nasty.

  • Dela G

    chris stewart sucks so much as a “defensive” catcher

    • Rolling Doughnut

      Right. He should have blocked it.

  • Luis Castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball)

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

  • Bo Knows

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

  • Dela G

    david, fucking, robinson

    • VT Yankee Fan

      The Admiral

  • VT Yankee Fan

    All three third strikes on curves that inning?

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    More swearing please. It is nourishment.

  • Bo Knows

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

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

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

    • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

      Red Sox even. Tells you how long this game has gone.

  • Rolling Doughnut

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

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    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

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Wow. What a late high strike call.

  • Dela G

    attaboy chris stewart! sorry i shat on you earlier

  • Wheels

    Stewart drives in Nix! ha

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    Mega Ef Yoo right there

  • Captain Turbo

    RBI by Stewart? WTF?

  • pat

    STEWIEEEEEE TRUE YANKEE

  • Dela G

    jesus christ ichiro DESTROYED that ball

    what an out

  • itsallhowuseeit

    Big run

  • Cy Pettitte

    4 hit batters. this is ridiculous.

  • Captain Turbo

    Throw the pitcher out!

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

    ALRIGHT. SERIOUSLY?

  • Wheels

    motherfucker

  • SDB

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

  • Anderson Silva

    another HBP, can they eject anyone?

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

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

    • pat

      Unlikely to dead CF.

    • Lukaszek

      Probably not. I know Fenway Park is actually shorter in straightaway center than Yankee Stadium

  • SDB

    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.

  • Bo Knows

    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

  • Dela G

    i’m sorry, this is fucking ridiculous

    4th player hit

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    How about because it WAS inside?

  • Lukaszek

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

  • http://www.penuel-law.com/ Cuso

    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.”

  • Dela G

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

  • Nathan

    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.

  • forensic

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

    What was the point of the warnings again???

    • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

      This crew has to believe that none of the previous three were intentional. However, I think Rubby De La Rosa is just missing his points.

      • Anderson Silva

        If you think about, all 3 HBPs after the A-Rod one were on breaking balls. I don’t think you’d try to hit someone with a curveball.

        • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

          I think Rubby De La Rosa wasn’t doing it intentionally, he just does not have great control.

    • Captain Turbo

      Word.

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Well Alfonso’s regressing to the mean.

  • http://www.retire21.org Wandai Wrection – Retire 21

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

    • Bo Knows

      those warnings were only for Yankee players apparently

      • http://www.retire21.org Wandai Wrection – Retire 21

        Oh! Ok! That clears it up. Thank you.

        • Bo Knows

          oh don’t thank me, I was being sarcastic

          the other guy is probably right

          • http://www.retire21.org Wandai Wrection – Retire 21

            I was also being sarcastic. Sorry it didn’t come across.

    • Adam

      Because the warning has to do with intentionally hitting or trying to hit someone. Not a slider that bounces in the dirt first.

      • http://www.retire21.org Wandai Wrection – Retire 21

        Then why was such a big deal made of “taking away the inside part of the plate from a pitcher” when warnings are issued?

        • Adam

          Breaking balls are not thrown to hit someone. I agree the whole warning system is ridiculous. Because, in theory, someone should get thrown out just for intentionally trying to bean someone in the first place.

  • Anderson Silva

    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

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

      • Lukaszek

        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

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Kramerica Industries

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

  • Kiko Jones

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

  • Justin

    Alex is Player of the Game tonight. What irony

    • http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek Roadgeek Adam

      And given its ESPN, I’m really surprised.

    • Bo Knows

      I wish Alex ran the bases while flipping everyone the bird

  • BigBlueAL

    Shouldve hit him.

  • Captain Turbo

    Fucking cheater gets a hit.

  • your mom

    Best win this year.

    • SDB

      don’t jinx it.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    Never easy in this freaking park.

    Most satisfying win of the season.

    Buck Foston

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    Just like they planned it.

  • BigBlueAL

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

  • Rolling Doughnut

    ARGHHH. Mo has not been sharp lately.

  • SDB

    Best win of the season.

    Once again, FUCK DEMPSTER.

  • Luis Castillo (Not the one who dropped the ball)

    Yes BWOTS.

  • Wheels

    Awesome win. Pumped

  • your mom

    Thank god we have a good pen.

  • Captain Turbo

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

  • Widget

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

  • Anderson Silva

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

  • Get Phelps Up

    Awesome game. Fuck those Boston douchebags

  • Dela G

    great win

  • Eddard

    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.

  • Improbable Island’s Dirty Midget Whores (formerly RRR)

    Big Papi is such an asshole.

  • forensic

    Awesome win!

    Suck it Dumpster!

  • BigBlueAL

    Great fucking win.

  • Dalek Jeter

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

    • Wheels

      Losing $75 million will do that to you.

  • ClusterDuck

    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.

    • Kiko Jones

      Gardy has A-Rod’s back.

  • Justin

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