Game 134: The Time Is Now

(Jim McIsaac/Getty)

The Yankees start a ten-game homestand tonight and if they’re ever going to claw their way back into the postseason race, this is the time to do it. They’ve negated every hot streak with a cold streak in recent weeks and have gained basically zero ground in the standings. There’s no more time for this nonsense. Beat a division rival and one of the teams you’re chasing this weekend, beat a last place team this week, then beat another division rival next week. If they don’t … well then their season is basically over. Here’s the lineup that will face right-hander Miguel Gonzalez:

  1. CF Brett Gardner
  2. SS Derek Jeter
  3. 2B Robinson Cano
  4. LF Alfonso Soriano
  5. 3B Alex Rodriguez
  6. DH Curtis Granderson
  7. 1B Mark Reynolds
  8. RF Ichiro Suzuki
  9. C Austin Romine

And on the mound is left-hander CC Sabathia, who need to throw 36.1 consecutive scoreless innings if he wants to get his season ERA down to 4.00. He’s got about six starts left this year, so he better get on that soon.

It’s warm, cloudy, and humid in New York, but there’s no threat of rain and that’s all that matters. The next two days might be a little different, but we’ll worry about that when the time comes. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm ET and can be seen on YES locally and MLB Network nationally.

    Thank God, no Chris Stewart

  2. Cuso says:

    This comment is sure to light a fire under the apologists: If Cashman was “wrong” about Soriano, he was right about Swisher.

  3. mustang (The Has Beens & Wannabes Bunch 2013) says:

    This is it my brain tells me it’s over, but my heart tell me not to give up. Regardless with all that has happen to this team they really should even be here so thank you for getting here.

    GO YANKS!!!!!

  4. your mom says:

    A must win game against a pitcher we can’t seem to beat. I’m predicting 6+ innings or 2 run ball by Gonzalez. And then hopefully another blown save by Jim Johnson.

  5. Alkaline says:

    Let’s go CC. 8 inning shutout.

  6. Tyrone Sharpton says:

    Clap clap, Axisa. That was inspirational. If they do end up sucking though, I hope Cano at least winds up with 80 walks so we can see Kabak eating that hat on a live ustream feed

  7. Betty Lizard says:

    Soriano has been a delight, seeing Alex Rodriguez play (and hit) again a thrill and . . . triple play!
    Plus, Austin Romine is a dish behind the dish.

    So, there have been a lot of fun moments in the Season of XXXX.

    My (revised) wish for the season? I’ll always be wishing for one more win.

  8. Eddard says:

    It’s Yankee Killer Miguel Gonzalez vs Yankee Killer CC Sabathia. I don’t see this going well for us. I think they can win the Nova and Andy starts but not this one. Even if they get a lead CC will just cough it up in the middle innings.

  10. Freddy's Dead says:

    I wonder if Joe EVER quickens his hook? He always waits till the damage is done to yank a pitcher. I know most managers do this but in the situation we’re in it’s maddening. I’d give him 3 runs and watch his stuff like a hawk. First pitch strike, that’s good!

  11. Freddy's Dead says:

    I didn’t like the Jones out. A power hitter woulda sent that to another state.

  12. Alright, we don’t get crew of doom in this series. Yay.

    Paul Schrieber (No. 43 / HP)Shrimpy strike zone for the 18th year umpire. On a normal basis, with someone with a small strike zone, not many pitchers have as many walks vs. strikeouts. He has a very very cocky attitude and will not be afraid to eject you.

    Chad Fairchild (No. 75 / 1B)In his tenth season umpiring in the majors, he has an erratic as silly strike zone. Some nights he’ll be a very wide strike zone, some days he’ll have it tight. But statistically, Fairchild is more a hitter’s umpire so don’t swing at questionable calls.

    Jeff Kellogg (No. 8 / 2B-CC)My favorite umpire (yeah I have them) of the 68 in the big leagues. He is in his 23rd season in the major leagues, Kellogg features a hitter’s strike zone, but interestingly to go with it, strike out rates when Kellogg is behind the plate, K-rates are still much higher than walk rates. In the years since he joined, he’s not ejected more than 50 players and in my book (total bias) one of the best umpires in baseball.

    Eric Cooper (No. 56 / 3B)Eric Cooper is an interesting theory. He’s in his 18th year of umpiring, having called behind the plate for three no-hitters/perfect games. Contrary to most of his crewmates, Cooper has a wide strike zone and as a result, extremely low walk rate. Cooper also has a weird attitude when it comes to beaning players, as in he’ll accept people throwing at people (see Dempster v. Rodriguez). He also had an interesting arguing fight with ex-Yankee AJ Burnett and Russell Martin as Burnett had a problem with Coopers calls and Cooper decided to respond rather angrily as if he was personality insulted.

    So yeah, I’m happy to write about one of my top 5 umpires, still haven’t gotten one of the 4 because Hirschbeck was out last series.

  13. Eddard says:

    CC looks good through 2 but don’t let that deceive you. We’ve been down this road before. Even if he’s given a lead he’ll just cough it up in the middle innings and Girardi won’t take him out until he’s lost it.

  14. Alkaline says:

    Looking good CC

  15. Eddard says:

    It worked once but not again. Curtis should just try to hit a HR instead.

  16. Mike Axisa says:

    Two outs with the bases empty in the second inning is no time to bunt to beat the shift. Swing the bat, Curtis.

  17. Rolling Doughnut says:

    CC looks good the first time through. Nice.

  18. mustang (The Has Beens & Wannabes Bunch 2013) says:

    HR Romine calling it.

  19. Kramerica Industries says:

    The Yankees continued inability to do a damn thing against Miguel Gonzalez is beyond embarrassing by this point.

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

    Frankly, I think CC really should be a five and done guy. Maybe a five and first man on take him out guy at best.

  21. Karl Krawfid says:

    2-2 count lets throw a fastball.

  22. Kramerica Industries says:

    The real problem is that the Yankees might not make up that run against Miguel Gonzalez. It’s absolutely unreal how much they suck against him.

  23. Rolling Doughnut says:

    CC’s first mistake comes with a runner on third.

  24. Frank Costanza says:

    Jesus they can’t ever touch this guy can they

  25. Would it be nice to actually find a hole in that infield?

  26. THANK GOD….

    Soriano (29)

  27. Eddard says:

    EVEN YANKEE KILLER MIGUEL GONZALEZ CAN’T STOP SORIANO!!!!!!!

  28. Wheels says:

    See ya

  29. Cy Pettitte says:

    Soriano is the best.

  30. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Now short leash Sabbathia. Very short.

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

    Soriano is playing out of his mind.

  32. Eddard says:

    CC just needs to make this stick through 6 and then they can set up Kelley-Drob-Mo. I’ve just seen this too many times before, though. He’ll cough up the lead in the next couple innings.

  33. Freddy's Dead says:

    OK, we may win this one. One can hope. Now I’m having trouble deciding who I should be rooting for, Tampa Bay or Oakland, but I figure we need to catch Oakland first.

  34. your mom says:

    Okay that’s probably all the run support CC is getting, he needs to shut the O’s down here.

  35. Alkaline says:

    Sori is just silly.

  36. Frank Costanza says:

    LOL Michael Bourn

  37. Alright, why did Reynolds leave 1B?

  38. Eddard says:

    CC actually got to the ball this time, Reynolds should have stayed put.

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

    Take him out.

  40. your mom says:

    Fuck you CC!!!!!!

  41. Eddard says:

    HA! And just like that he coughed it up again. I knew it. And against a nobody. Just pull him now, Joe.

  42. Cy Pettitte says:

    of fucking course. and of course they get Markakis on with the cheapest fucking hit of the century.

  43. mustang (The Has Beens & Wannabes Bunch 2013) says:

    Wow just wow

  44. Kramerica Industries says:

    Couldn’t even last one out before giving the lead back. Thanks, C.C.

  45. Wheels says:

    Goodbye lead.

  46. Frank Costanza says:

    Holy shit he is AWFUL

  47. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Fuck you CC,

  48. Cy Pettitte says:

    just get him out of this game. he’s completely lost it.

  49. Steve D Fl says:

    Shocking! He gives the lead right back. WTF

  50. Eddard says:

    Now watch Tegarden hit a 2 run HR. Joe won’t do a damn thing until CC has given up 2-3 more runs and lost the ballgame. Joe always lets CC throw 100 pitches.

  51. Frank Costanza says:

    Not a game for Romine’s highlight reel either…

  52. Frank Costanza says:

    He seriously needs to get taken out of this game

  53. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Girardi still hasn’t figured it out.

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

    WHY is he still in the game?

    Joe is an idiot. And I like him.

  55. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Stewart would have got him.

  56. Wheels says:

    The shit’s about to hit the fan.

  57. Eddard says:

    I can’t believe McClouth’s little flare didn’t go over Jeter’s head. It’s been that kind of year.

  58. Eddard says:

    Just throw Machado a fastball right down the middle. That should get him out.

  59. Cy Pettitte says:

    and now that’s 2 2 out runs allowed. What a fucking turd.

  60. Frank Costanza says:

    May as well keep him in. He’ll figure it out in no time. No time at all…

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

    I’m blaming Girardi for that run. GET HIM THE FUCK OUT. IS he blind? In denial? Is he having an affair with CC’s wife? What is it?

    • your mom says:

      CC is our de facto ace.

    • Frank Costanza says:

      When has Joe Girardi EVER gone against the grain when it comes to managing?

      CC (and Kuroda lately) stay in the game until they throw 100 pitches no matter what. They’re the aces, the horses, of the rotation and get the benefit of the doubt. David Robertson is the “8th inning guy” and thou shalt not use him in any other inning. He sits lefties who have good numbers against lefties. He loads the lineup with righties against a lefty with a massive (reverse?) platoon split due to his nasty changeup. I could go on…

  62. vicki says:

    so psyched to face this guy eighteen times a year for the next fifteen years.

  63. Cy Pettitte says:

    CC is now a $25mil long man. He cannot go through a line up more than once.

  64. Mel says:

    Give CC his Captain Crunch back! He pitched better when he was fat!

  65. Wheels says:

    Reynolds!

  66. Wheels says:

    ICHIRO!!!

  67. VT Yankee Fan says:

    CC’s ERA since the all star break is now 8.18.

  68. Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

    Ichiro!!!!!!

    Now please take CC out before he coughs up another lead.

  69. mustang (The Has Beens & Wannabes Bunch 2013) says:

    JUST LIKE THAT!!!!

  70. Kramerica Industries says:

    They are ripping Miguel Gonzalez apart.

    It’s about damn time.

  71. Frank Costanza says:

    I hope Shawn Kelley starts the 6th

  72. nycsportzfan says:

    ICHIRO!!!!!! AWESOME!!!

  73. Cy Pettitte says:

    well that was unexpected. Don’t you dare send that fat fuck out to pitch again, Joe.

  74. Cuso says:

    Boom and BOOM! Bitches!

  75. OldYanksFan says:

    Ichiro dishonors his country by not hitting a single.

  76. Tom says:

    Man couldn’t even get the “Don’t Bunt!” in before Ichiro took him out.

  77. your mom says:

    Well, holy shit………..

  78. DERP says:

    Jim Palmer was saying that Ichiro was going to bunt and before he finished the sentence Ichiro made contact.

  79. Cy Pettitte says:

    This is some crazy Yankees vs. Gonzalez regression

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

    Good. NOW TAKE CC THE FUCK OUT.

    But he won’t.

  81. Ethan says:

    WHY ISN’T ROMINE STARTING EVERY DAY!

  82. Cuso says:

    Bats are angry right now. Dayum.

  83. Frank Costanza says:

    I used to think that mark on the right side of Romine’s face was a scuff mark or some kind of bruise but now I realize it’s permanent. I’ve seen it all year. Never seen anything like that before. What a freak!!!

  84. Kramerica Industries says:

    Michael’s actually right about that, for a change. That’s a foul ball.

  85. dkidd says:

    today is my birthday. all i want is for this lead to hold up

  86. Eddard says:

    CC should not be allowed to come back into the ballgame unless we have a 5 run lead. He’ll cough up anything less. Logan-Kelley-Drob-Mo should all that be used.

  87. mustang (The Has Beens & Wannabes Bunch 2013) says:

    BTW this run if they have a run can’t be done without CC being at least good. So bitch all you want call him all the names you want, but the only hope is for him to be better.

    fucking game thread.

  88. DERP says:

    Gonzalez is terrible.

  89. Mike Axisa says:

    Austin Romine: 10 XBH, 130 PA

    Chris Stewart: 9 XBH, 290 PA

  90. Cuso says:

    STFU Buck. Sit down.

  91. DERP says:

    Is there a reason Wieters isn’t playing. Especially against a lefty.

  92. DERP says:

    Thanks Buck for pushing Gonzalez back so he could face the Yanks!

  93. MP says:

    Detroit already knocking around Cleveland, 5-1 in the 4th.

  94. DERP says:

    Buck has Gausman in the bullpen and he is bringing in TJ McFarland instead.

  95. Eddard says:

    Heart of the order has to blow this open here and make CC a non-factor. Joe will not pull him until he’s reached 100 pitches thrown.

  96. Cy Pettitte says:

    blow this thing open, I don’t want to have to watch them try to cling to a 1 or 2 run lead when Joe will probably send CC back out until he’s over 100 pitches

  97. Cuso says:

    Mark “Mack” Reynolds : Embedded Oriole

  98. Tom says:

    Wow things went south on Gonzalez in a hurry.

    Many props to Joe for not bunting in a couple of no out guy on 2nd situations, which is usually an auto bunt for him with a guy like Ichiro or Garnder up

  99. Cuso says:

    Better watch it with that shit!!!

  100. Alkaline says:

    Oh. Hi offense.

  101. Kramerica Industries says:

    Well, who can name the game they lost where they scored 7 runs or more.

    (I’ve already pegged it.)

  102. DERP says:

    Bases loaded, no outs and Buck brings in the worst pitcher in the bullpen. Great manager!

    • Cy Pettitte says:

      I love how last year all the media praised him for his amazing record in 1 run and extra innings games last year and now they suck in those games yet he gets no blame.

  103. Itsallhowuseeit says:

    Robbie

  104. Wheels says:

    C’mon Arod, shit.

  105. DERP says:

    Have to score this run at third.

  106. DERP says:

    We lose.

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

    CC will blow that lead if Joe doesn’t take him out.

  108. Eddard says:

    I just don’t know if 3 runs is enough. We’ve seen CC blow that kind of lead before, once against the Os. Joe better have Kelley warming and ready to go but I know he won’t.

  109. HateMclouth (formerly I'mVernon) says:

    Its so nice to see Cy Gonzalez implode. He was due for it. Wish we could have scored some more though, not entirely sure 3 runs is CC-proof.

  110. Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

    Very, very, very, very short leash please.

  111. Kramerica Industries says:

    So, how many batters does it take for Sabathia to blow this lead?

  112. Kramerica Industries says:

    Of course, that graphic likely makes no mention of the ALDS stats, but that would make the numbers look better and really take away from the point being made.

  113. Cy Pettitte says:

    here we go again….

  114. Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

    Take him out, Joe.
    Pretend like you’ve been paying attention.

  115. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Jesus take him out.

  116. Tom says:

    Why even throw Jones a strike there? The guy I think has the worst zone discipline in the majors (and if not he’s right at the top). After 2 strikes, there is no reason to throw him anything in the zone.

  117. Frank Costanza says:

    Take him OUT what the FUCK else do you need to see?

  118. Itsallhowuseeit says:

    Hate to sound greedy but yanks really needed to score more that inning. Absolutely zero confidence CC holds this lead

  119. Kramerica Industries says:

    Regardless, this should be C.C.’s last batter tonight. Three RHB follow, including Valencia.

  120. Eddard says:

    Wow, Joe actually has Kelley warming in the pen. Bring him in next inning, even if CC only throws 90 pitches. Set up the pen and get the W.

  121. Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

    Have to take him out.

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

    Surprised? Joe is LATE. He never should have started the damn inning.

  123. Eddard says:

    Joe finally comes to his senses and does the right thing.

  124. MP says:

    Watching the big man struggle has been one of the most frustrating sights in a season full of them.

  125. Rolling Doughnut says:

    The run

    CC should not have even come out for the 6th.

  126. Itsallhowuseeit says:

    Buy bye CC not gonna let you give back another lead

  127. Kramerica Industries says:

    To think, he got the first ten Orioles out tonight.

    Only lasted seven more outs. Gave up five ER in the process.

  128. MP says:

    Man, this game is way, way too stressful for having scored 7 runs in 5 innings off the guy we couldn’t touch earlier in the year.

  129. Kramerica Industries says:

    4.91

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

      He wanted to give Phil some company.

      Awful nice of him, don’t you think?

      • Kramerica Industries says:

        Isn’t it about time you make it (but mostly pitching)?

        • Need Pitching & Hitting & Defense & Baserunning says:

          They’ve been held to 3 or fewer runs in 6 of the last 9 games (before today).
          They need both to be much better. I suppose there’s no current need to prioritize one over the other though.

  130. Itsallhowuseeit says:

    Valencia having the game of his life

  131. Freddy's Dead says:

    6.92 era for this outing. CC’s year just keeps getting worse. Also, ARod looked truly awful in that last at bat. Sori too but he gets a pass seeing as how he’s saving our asses.

  132. UncleArgyle says:

    I really hope we can dump fatso on the Dodgers in the offseason. Man, talk about falling off a cliff.

  133. Frank says:

    Good for CC. I hope gets so pissed he’ll agree to waive his no trade.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

      Waiving the ntc isn’t going to help anything if nobody wants him.

      • Frank says:

        If Yanks eat some salary, SF is the perfect landing spot. NL, he gets to hit, close to home and he pitches in a pitchers park.

        • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

          He might like it. The amount of salary they’d have to eat to make SF like the idea probably would be too much for it to be worthwhile for the Yankees.

        • Bo Knows says:

          His home is in NJ, his kids are young, he’s not going anywhere

  134. Tom says:

    They need to tack on, even as good as the pen has been.

    ARod not getting that runner in from 3rd with 1 out and CC giving up yet another 2 out run scoring hit was a big swing.

  135. Eddard says:

    Mark Reynolds is hot as a firecracker. Give credit to Joe for going with the hot hand instead of the generic lefty-righty match up.

  136. Itsallhowuseeit says:

    Fuck this baserunning

  137. Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting) says:

    Hopefully Ichiro is finally getting hot again.

  138. Itsallhowuseeit says:

    Rally killer…just dumb baseball

  139. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Stupid running on Jones. Stupid.

  140. Tom says:

    So rather than have Kelley pitch to 1 lefty(and then 2 righties), he’s going to have Logan potentially face 2 righties after McClouth?

    I get this move if it’s a 1 run lead, but not with a 2 run lead.

  141. Eddard says:

    Joba getting into this game is worse than CC staying in.

  142. Cy Pettitte says:

    so Jobber is back in the circle of trust? wow

  143. Eddard says:

    Here’s what’s going to happen – Joba is going to let Machado get on and then Girardi is going to bring in Robertson, making you wonder why he bothered bringing Joba into the game in the first place.

  144. Kramerica Industries says:

    overmanaging. jeez.

  145. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Joe leaves CC in to give up another run, but now is overmanaging the pen. Should have just left Kelley in there to finish the inning.

  146. nsalem says:

    Joba making his way back into the circle of trust.

  147. nsalem says:

    This will be the shortest of leaches.

  148. nsalem says:

    guess not

  149. Wheels says:

    Hereee’s Jobber!

  150. Itsallhowuseeit says:

    D Rob? Girardi showing te team how big this game is

  151. 28 this year says:

    This is why Claiborne woudl be useful in this series. If they want ot mix and match this much, I would think the extra arm in Claiborne woudl be useful.

  152. Alkaline says:

    Gr. I hate when chrome doesn’t update the comment section.

  153. Need Pitching & Hitting & Defense & Baserunning says:

    The slide is dumb enough.
    But to completely miss the base?
    smdh

  154. Wheels says:

    Don’t slide headfirst Gardner.

  155. Cy Pettitte says:

    this is like 30 minutes worth of pitching changes now

    • Eddard says:

      And it’s not even Sept 1 yet. Stakes are getting higher and pretty soon each team will have more pitchers at its disposal.

  156. Eddard says:

    Soriano should be able to take K-Rod deep.

  157. 28 this year says:

    Another hit batter. Seems to be a normal day then

  158. Eddard says:

    A-Rod finally comes through. Huge insurance run.

  159. Cy Pettitte says:

    love them insurance runs

  160. Tom says:

    ARod!

    Way to make up for the last AB. Big time tack on run.

  161. Eddard says:

    Awful baserunning again. And why is Grandy bunting? Soriano went home because A-Rod went to 3rd.

  162. SDB says:

    What the hell was that?!

  163. Need Pitching & Hitting & Defense & Baserunning says:

    wtf was that?

  164. Cy Pettitte says:

    wow that was pretty bad.

  165. Steve D Fl says:

    IDIOT!!!!!!!

  166. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Oh ffsake.

  167. Wheels says:

    What the hell Sori? These guys need baserunning lessons

  168. HateMclouth (formerly I'mVernon) says:

    What was Sori thinking?

  169. Cy Pettitte says:

    and why is Curtis bunting there? this guy has hit 40+ HRs and is bunting in half his ABs this game.

    • OldYanksFan says:

      Because when bunting against the shift, he should get a hit 1/2 the time. That’s a .500 BA, .500 OBP and .500 slugging. Plus, after a while, they will stop shifting on him, making it easier to get a (non-bunt) hit.

      It’s smart. Hope we can teach Teix to do it.

      • Need Pitching & Hitting & Defense & Baserunning says:

        50% is probably high.
        It has to get bunted hard enough to get past the pitcher and still has to stay fair.

  170. Eddard says:

    I wonder if Girardi told Granderson to bunt more. It just doesn’t make sense why he would all of a sudden start playing small ball. He’s a power hitter. LH power hitter in YS should be swinging the bat.

  171. Cuso says:

    That was A-Rod ‘s fault, not Soriano’s .. A-Rod forced Soriano to go because he broke for 3rd with no force.

  172. OldYanksFan says:

    They really need to fire Jorge as their running coach

  173. Alkaline says:

    Ack. Good bunt, bad baseruning.

  174. nsalem says:

    We should have at least 11 runs this game. Hopefully we won’t need more than 8.

  175. Alkaline says:

    Lets go DROB

  176. Alkaline says:

    I need to stop commenting.

  177. Rolling Doughnut says:

    Letting Valencia hit over Weiters wow

  178. Tom says:

    That’s what happens when the ump gives a major league hitter 4 strikes – where the hell was the first pitch that was called a ball?

  179. Eddard says:

    How did that 1st base ump call that a non-swing? He clearly went more than half-way.

  180. nsalem says:

    Erich Weisz!!!!

  181. Frank says:

    Nice audition for next season for Reynolds.

  182. Eddard says:

    Joe just needs to keep playing Reynolds as long as he’s hot.

  183. Mickey Scheister says:

    Girardi’s lips as the camera cut the last half inning…”piece of shit.”

  184. HateMclouth (formerly I'mVernon) says:

    Wells, Soriano, Reynolds… you can’t deny that the pinstripe effect is not real. Here’s to hoping the latter 2 don’t vanish, though.

  185. Buck showalter says:

    I am playing this game under protest
    I started a lefty and we are getting killed!
    Wtf
    Where is overbay,wells,hefner,adams,cruz,nicks,almonte,mesa ?
    This isnt fair. Fucking yankees

    “Hitting? This shit’s easy.” – Mark Reynolds

  187. Cy Pettitte says:

    they scored 8 runs with atrocious base running, that’s pretty impressive.

  188. Mickey Scheister says:

    Do the batters of the 2013 Yankees ever think “if I score another run it won’t be a save situation for Mo, lemme leave the bat on my shoulder.”?

  189. Tom says:

    Come on Romins get this run home – you might not play the next two weeks if you don’t.

  190. Eddard says:

    They’ve had 2 runners thrown out at home, Reynolds thrown out at 3rd.

  191. Buck showalter says:

    At least put in stewart so we have a chance

  192. HateMclouth (formerly I'mVernon) says:

    Some funky baserunning tonight.

  193. Buck showalter says:

    Great now Rivera
    We fucked

  194. Wheels says:

    Jeez lady.

  195. DERP says:

    Gary Thorne trying for the massive jinx. Holy fuck.

  196. Buck showalter says:

    Its not fair i tellya .

  197. Frank says:

    Nice win but unfortunately, CC continues to sink into the abyss.

  198. Eddard says:

    Well they won the game in which they had the worst pitching match up. Pick up a game on Cleveland and either Tampa or Oakland.

  199. Tom says:

    Mo needs to teach DRob how to do these “boring” 1-2-3 innings before he retires.
