Game 38: Win it for Ace Whitley

2015 Draft: Baseball America's Mock Draft v2.0
Headley's homer, Sabathia's dominance lead Yankees to 5-1 win over Royals
(Presswire)
(Presswire)

The Yankees have lost four straight games, and while the pitching staff got contact-bombed last night, the offense has been the biggest issue. They’ve scored six runs total in the four losses and have scored in just one inning in each game. It’s one thing to get shut down by someone like Chris Archer the other day, but Erasmo Ramirez? Chris Young? Blargh.

Anyway, losses happen, even four losses in a row, but no team in the AL East can afford an extended losing streak this season. The division is way too tight. The Yankees lost Chase Whitley to an elbow injury that will likely result in Tommy John surgery two days ago, so go out and win it for him. Ace Whitley did a nice job for the Yankees in a non-familiar role as a starting pitcher. Here is the Royals’ lineup and here is the Yankees’ lineup:

  1. CF Jacoby Ellsbury
  2. LF Chris Young
  3. DH Alex Rodriguez
  4. 1B Mark Teixeira
  5. RF Carlos Beltran
  6. 3B Chase Headley
  7. 2B Jose Pirela
  8. SS Stephen Drew
  9. C John Ryan Murphy
    LHP CC Sabathia

It cloudy and sticky in Kansas City and it’s supposed to rain later tonight. It shouldn’t impact the game unless it goes to extra innings though. Tonight’s game will begin a bit after 7pm ET and will air on WPIX. Try to enjoy.

Injury Update: Masahiro Tanaka (wrist, forearm) will throw another bullpen session on Monday. He’ll then pitch in a minor league rehab game after that, likely on Thursday.

Roster Move: Bryan Mitchell has been called up and Jose Ramirez has been sent down, the Yankees announced. Mitchell was scheduled to start for Triple-A Scranton today, so he can give the team lots of innings out of the bullpen. I really hope they don’t need them.

    Over/under 4.5 hits for the last 5 guys in the lineup?

      Going down?
      1st floor, lingerie.

      • Austinmac

        You always stop at lingerie. Admit it.

  • Pkyankfan69

    Gardner should be in there over Buttron. Better offense, better defense

    Gardy this year vs lefties .294/.368/.500/.868
    Buttron this year vs lefties .133/.212/.267/.479

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      It’s a rest day if anything. Girardi doesn’t actually say “Gardner or Beltran vs a lefty? Beltran sounds good!”

  • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

    Royals have 5 # 1’s in Gordon, Moustakas, Cain? We will have to bad a long time to attain that staus. Let’s not start tonite.

    • Barzini

      Cain was in the Greinke trade.

  • RetroRob

    CC will give up 12 runs before recording an out. The bullpen will be burnt beyond recognition. Fire will rain down from the sky.

    Or not.

    Play ball.

  • WhittakerWalt

    Let’s do something crazy and score 3 runs.

  • WhittakerWalt

    Let’s do something crazy and score 3 runs.

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    Stephen Drew continues to play and play and play. And who sits? Brett Gardner. That makes a lot of sense. I just don’t know what that guy has to do to get benched.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Rest is important Eddard… Eh… Why do I even waste my time trying to explain the concept of rest to a robot? I’m going crazy or something….

    • NYCORNERSTONE

      They love him for some strange reason

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    “Win it for Ace Whitley”
    *Lay down*
    *Try not to cry*
    *Cry*
    :'(

  • Beauee

    Hold on to your butts: losing streak and CC on the mound.

  • Jman1213

    I had a feeling either Pinder or Ramirez was going down today. I’m guessing Mitchell goes back down tomorrow after Capuano is activated.

  • Jman1213

    What’s with Duffy’s beard? Is he Amish?

    • RetroRob

      It’s a bad beard. I would add that it’s a good thing the Yankees have a no beard policy, but I’m thinking you might disagree. : -)

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        If they kept the beards nice and neat it would be fine by me, nobody likes seeing disgusting beards like the ones the Red Sox have had, no thanks

        • RetroRob

          I agree. I just don’t like the current beard styles now, hence my comment. Reply

          • Jman1213

            Noticed my pic, huh?

            Honestly beards are great, but Duffy’s looks terrible. He either needs to grow the mustache part out or trim back the beard portion.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    sweet

  • RetroRob

    Wow. That’s an embarrassing call.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Base hit if we are home, hate this road-bias

      • RetroRob

        That’s ruled a base hit in just about any park. I do see home-bias calls on the road (although I don’t think the NY scorers are that generous to the Yankees), but there usually is some wiggle room. None there. He doesn’t throw Ellsbury out even if he does field it. That was a hit all the way.

  • Tony Wilson

    Let’s go CC!!!! Tampa lost again , score some runs offense !!!!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    attaboy Ells! they need to score him

  • RetroRob

    Official scorer rules Defensive Indifference. No SB.

  • David Ortiz Milkshake

    Oh look – Tampa plays someone other than the Yankees and stinks up the joint!

    How unpredictable! Streak ends with the big C

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      The trop is where Yankee dreams go to die

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Great AB by Young, couldn’t have done any better except get a hit

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    Alex has another chance here to manufacture that run. He botched it last night. Just hit a nice fly ball to the OF.

  • David Ortiz Milkshake

    ELLSNER

    Oh wait, Gardner is riding the pine.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Same 4 pitches >.>

  • GregD

    Hard to get excited about our offense

  • RetroRob

    Thanks for rubbing it in, Coney.

  • Franchise

    Terrible situational hitting by Arod. Put the ball in play

  • GregD

    hope CC got good stuff tonight

  • MustacheMasher

    Seems pretty quite here, wonder if its because of the losing streak or it being saturday night

    • GregD

      Many taking a break after 4 tough nights in a row

    • dkidd

      because game threads are a nightmare these days

    • Beauee

      Rough past few nights. People are checking out. I checked out last night, thankfully.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Yeah I bailed the inning as the outburst started, was 2-1 when I last watched.

    • Deep Thoughts

      Why ask why. Just enjoy it.

  • GregD

    Top 7 players in Royals lineup hitting.280 or better…….wow

  • Beauee

    CC needs to pitch his ass off tonight, and Joe needs to avoid being cute. Pull ’em before it gets ugly.

  • I am Brett Godner’s ‘stache

    I’d complain about Beltran playing over Godner or say something like no Godner, no win, but you know it’s not like the middle of the order would drive him in if he was on base anyway. All we are missing is a lot of stranded runners on second and third instead of just third.

    Game Thread!!!

  • Beauee

    Moose Tacos looks fat. Like really fat.

  • Elton Cod M.T.

    This team and situational hitting is like Jim Belushi and situational comedy: not very good at delivering.

  • Beauee

    This is the quietest game thread ever.

    • Deep Thoughts

      Thank Mo.

  • Barzini

    Big man lost his command there at the end. Hosmer hacking away at everything.

  • Pkyankfan69

    I just switched cable providers and now I don’t get the Pix11 games in HD

    Oh the horrors of standard definition

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Praying for you brother

  • RetroRob

    That’s a real error. Take note, Mr. Official Scorer, for future reference.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Pirela’s AB ruled a base hit!!

  • MustacheMasher

    Love the hustle

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Why not just start Didi against the lefty? Not like Drew and Didi are any difference against lefties.

    • LazerTown

      Drew has over 120 wrc+ this year vs lefties.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        wtf

      • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

        Zero reason to think that will continue.

        • LazerTown

          Can say the same thing about Young can’t we?

          • WhittakerWalt

            Against lefties? I wouldn’t be surprised if Young keeps that up all season.

            • LazerTown

              Not at a 282 wRC+ though. and he useless vs rhp.

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            I mean Young is great against lefties, Drew just blows all around

          • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

            Of course. Young’s career numbers vs. LHP are way, way better than Drew’s though.

    • Beauee

      Because for some reason, Joe believes that Drew is gonna turn it around…at any moment…

    • MustacheMasher

      I would perfer Didi too, but I also have a pretty huge hate towards Drew

    • Binder

      Because I said so.

  • HoopDreams

    Does Joe really like him or is he just towing the organizations fetish for crappy hitting middle infielders

    • Beauee

      Ever since Cano left it has been ugly: Brian Roberts, Kelly Johnson (sort of), and Drew.

      • Pkyankfan69

        Solarte was a beast for a few weeks

        • MustacheMasher

          Best storyline of last season

        • Beauee

          I forgot he played second.

      • NYCORNERSTONE

        id take Kelly Johnson for 4 million less then Drew every time

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Pretty sure he’d play better too

          • NYCORNERSTONE

            think he has 7 hr for Braves this year

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I think SKJRM is perfectly content as backup catcher on the MLB team rather than starting in AAA.

    • Stratocaster

      Serial killers love lots of travel and discretionary time.

    • NYCORNERSTONE

      More money

  • SteveNj

    JRM has a serious stache

    • Beauee

      I think he should keep it.

  • David Ortiz Milkshake

    Hey, at least we’re hitting the ball high.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    40 pitches through 2. Wish that could make me happier

  • GregD

    What’s that smell?

  • NYCORNERSTONE

    John Ryan Murphy Cereal killer pop tarts

  • Pkyankfan69

    In awesome news it just started raining here… It’s been dry for like 2 weeks and the pollen is just brutal…. Rain baby rain!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura
  • Pkyankfan69

    I’d ignore Kay also…Way to go Meredith

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Didi’s so bad at defense that the ball would’ve hit him in the balls and he would have let the guy get to 2nd while he would roll on the ground in pain.

  • WhittakerWalt

    I realize the Yankees aren’t paying ARod to hit groundballs to the infield, but sheesh. Seeing him flail away at balls out of the strike zone is giving me flashbacks to the 2012 ALCS. How about a 2-strike approach that emphasizes contact?

  • No 2013 again

    On one hand CC looks good.. On the other hand, the offense is worse than ever. This is exactly what we all imagined from this offense.. Maybe a couple of hot weeks shouldn’t change the fact that this is a terrible hitting team

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    That sounded like a broke bat and it was nearly to the wall.

    CENTAUR WARNING HERE

      all the starters for the other team have been unhittable for the Yankees over the past 4 games

      • dota

        Notwithstanding. He’s a lefty that throws mid 90’s, a cross body delivery, and a nice slider. A “once he figures it out” kind of pitcher.

      He has low testosterone and MLB won’t renew his TUE which they once gave him several years ago (yes, MLB gave Arod permission to use synthetic testosterone). Hard to grow facial hair w/o testosterone.

      Because you think the guy is so rattled that he’ll just pour a BP fastball down the pipe to at least get strike 1. Not saying I necessarily agree with that. I say make him prove he can throw a strike before you start offering, but then they don’t listen to me.

      • dota

        Agreed.

    • Jman1213

    CC doesn’t trust Pirela to make a basic play, not sure I blame him.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      not his fault

      • argenys

        It was CCs fault, because he didn’t trust that him leading Pirela to first wouldn’t have resulted in a sloppy play. But it was a situation where you ca technically claim no one had fault.

    To state the obvious, limiting damage here is key.

    Raise your hand if you expected CC to K Cain there…?

    • CashmanNinja

      The only one who expected him to K Cain was the umpire because that was a ball.

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    SKJRM pitch called the hell out of that at-bat.

  • dota

    Same pitch to Hosmer is ball 1…

  • argenys

    DP on Cain?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Struck out

      • argenys

        Oops I’m behind on MLB.TV forgot I had rewinded to view the HOF thing the royals have. My bad

  • Veteran presents

    Wow this lag on mlbtv sucks

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      2015 eh

  • CashmanNinja

    That looked fair.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Looked fair

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      I meant it looked foul

  • dota

    Looked fair

  • Since_77

    Gardner would definately have caught that ball.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      *Looks away nervously*

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Woof. Thought that was fair in real time.

    • 28 this year

      Same. Definitely thought they were going to review that at first glance and would probably be a double?? Don’t know what the precedent is there.

  • CashmanNinja

    Oh oh oh…good call ump. I stand corrected.

  • MustacheMasher

    I was sure that was a fair ball when i saw it live… Well we can’t say that CC is unlucky

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    No! Defensive indifference!

    • CashmanNinja

      They give A-Rod a defensive indifference there, but this dude gets a steal. Bias.

  • Since_77

    That looked like strike 3

  • CashmanNinja

    Hosmer. Stop.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    K this man

  • dota

    Wearing out that corner

  • Jman1213

    You know, it might be time to move Young to his right now.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    fuck yeah CC

  • Since_77

    Hosmer swinging late. Sabathia must have a good FB.

  • dota

    I’m floored he got out of the inning with only letting up 1R

  • CashmanNinja

    I love that pitch selection on the last out. Very nice.

  • HoopDreams

    Nice calling there by SKJRM

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Nice work by CC.

  • Veteran presents

    KC’s offense looked like our offense that inning.

  • RetroRob

    Nice recovery. If not for the Pirela/defensive shift thingamajig they probably don’t score.

    • CashmanNinja

      It really wasn’t Pirela’s fault because he was really hustling over and actually covered a ton of ground in that time period. It was just a dumb defensive shift where they actually made it harder on themselves. That was on Girardi.

    • Beauee

      We are so bad at shifts. We should just stop.

  • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

    Yanks don’t have a hit?

    • RetroRob

      They do. In the first inning. Unfortunately, the official scorer ruled it an error. So, no.

    • Some Asshole

      Walks are as good as hits.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        #MoneyBall

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        Not when only 1 run scores.

        • Some Asshole

          When BadYanksOffense is activated, either will do. Thought I had the kill code somewhere around here….

    • GoDucks

      Yep. There went the chance to win the game in spite of being no-hit.

  • Jim Piasecki

    Sinkhole lineup

  • Pkyankfan69

    No need for the Royals infielders to take a few extra steps to shit… Drew will get out anyway unless he BB’s

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Wouldn’t a Drew AB be the perfect time to take a shit?

      • Some Asshole

        No, because it’s over so quickly.

        • Some Asshole

          Oh, cool, a hit. #MLB.tv lag

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        Drew or you?

  • NYCORNERSTONE

    Automatic outs inning

  • Some Asshole

    This would be a good inning for the starting nine to walk out of the dugout and beat Duffy with their bats until he’s a bloody pile that is one with the mound. Let’s do it, Yanks.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    #SHIFTFAIL YEAHHH

  • dota

    Drew LACES a single to LF

  • yankeefeminista

    Nice job by C, from what I can see on my phone. We’re in a rain delay -thunder and lightning storm – in Trenton. Everyone’s been kept off balance by Voth’s breaking stuff. Any updates on where Tanaka’s supposed to rehab in Thursday?

  • Jim Piasecki

    Makes it easy on a pitcher when he knows every 2 or 3 innings he will get a bye

  • Pkyankfan69

    Booya!…Just missed a HR there

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Binder…. Success?

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    And Drew gets our 1st hit of the night. That’s why he’s in there.

    • Pete22

      Bloop hits count more than 100 mph LD outs

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        Not in the World of Hit Velo.

        • Jman1213

          And Girardi says “See? Told you he was coming around!”

          • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

            Makes himself look like a BS artist at times.
            Who is his writer?

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              “Well Stephen went 1-4 today, that certainly increased his AVG. He looked good today, the one hit he had really points it in a good direction.”

  • Pete22

    As I said earlier, Drew needs to go the other way more. That may have been an accident though

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      That was an awful swing/hit and he got lucky, nothing impressive there

  • Veteran presents

    He sure did knock the crap out of that one

  • dave_8

    Basically the pitcher bounced a ball off Drew’s bat. He had little to do with it.

    • CashmanNinja

      Like that South Park Little League episode.

  • NYCORNERSTONE

    ,,,<<< Fainted

  • Jim Piasecki

    That will hurt hit velocity

  • Some Asshole

    Wow, that serial killer mustache makes him look like a pizza man. I approve.

    • NYCORNERSTONE

      Looks like mall cop

      • Some Asshole

        The mall cops here are too young to grow mustaches.

        • NYCORNERSTONE

          King of queens guy in the movie mall cop

    • Veteran presents

      No the mustache makes him a serial rapist now

      • Some Asshole

        Love me a bowl of them Lucky Charms. Wait, what?

            We should all snuggle up under a nice warm blanket with a mimosa and some popcorn and watch.

            • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

              I’ll pass.

              • Sir Didi Nakamura

                Snuggling up next to an asshole? Why not?

                • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

                  I’m picky that way…

  • Mike Ehrmantrout

    Drew with the lucky bloop. Throw a parade…

    • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

      Call it a Droop.

    At least they’re making him work.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      *Stares at KC bullpen*
      “Shit”

      • Mike Ehrmantrout

        Damn. Good point. Doh!

      • Some Asshole

        ALL THE HERRERAS!!!

        ‘Cept I released one.

  • Some Asshole

    Stephen Drew is just a terrible pitcher. One run to KC already on the board.

  • Mike Ehrmantrout

    I’m too lazy to check this but I’m pretty sure there are pitchers with a better batting average over the past two seasons than Drew.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Greinke

      • Mike Ehrmantrout

        Drew has been worth .1 WAR this season thus far, better than his -.6 during pinstripes last year.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Greinke was 0.9 WAR (B-ref) as a hitter lol in 2014

          • Mike Ehrmantrout

            Lmao! Wow.

    • Some Asshole

      Those are getting very hard to find these days. Because strategy.

  • NYCORNERSTONE

    Ells may drive in 40 on the year with Drew and Didi around casman better do something

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      -_-

    • Some Asshole

      Bat Ellsbury fifth and he’ll drive in more runs.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        nah RBIs are a skill stat

        • Some Asshole

          Your eyes said so.

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            My eyes also tell me that CC is fat and gives up 10 runs per game

  • Omar

    this offense is hard to watch when the top half isn’t hitting, and the bottom half continues to be hot garbage

  • Pete22

    CC not having any problem striking out the Royals unlike Pineda

    • dota

      They haven’t been in Omaha in a while.

    • Some Asshole

      Why is Pineda blocking Lindgren!?!?!?!?five

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Derek Jeter?

          • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

            Jeter > The Binder.

              Pinder > Binder

            • Some Asshole

              Jeter had the Binder over for a night. It was torn up and was never the same again. Cool gift basket, though.

              • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

    Remember way back on Monday when the Yanks hit 5 HR and scored 11 runs?

    Feels like years ago

      That was like, 2006, bro.

      • NYCORNERSTONE

        2012

  • Mike Ehrmantrout

    (Obligatory)

    It’s time…free Refsynder!

    • Some Asshole

      With the purchase of a Lindgren of equal or greater value.

  • Pkyankfan69
  • Some Asshole

    A different kind of 50 shades of gray….

    Ah-yup…

  • Pkyankfan69

    At least the ump is consistent with that high inside pitch on righties

  • CashmanNinja

    A pitcher’s duel? More like a lack of offense…CC is doing all he can to let the Royals score runs.

    • Pkyankfan69

      Ahh, gotta give CC some credit for battling out there

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Crazy trade offers I heard today winner: Chapman + Cueto for Joc Pederson

    • CashmanNinja

      Hmm….Pederson does look like the real deal, but that’s an All-Star closer and an ace. Granted Cueto will get an INSANE amount of money (probably at least $200M), but…for a guy who has a good 1st month? Ha.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        The trade is Chapman and half a year of Cueto for a guy with Joc’s upside? No way, that’s crazy. Chapman’s an awesome closer, but after this season you need to replace your CF instead of your Closer.

    • dave_8

      Where’s the one that has Addison Russell coming to the Yankees?

            Give ’em the SHAFT.

              Holy shit. Very next pitch.

    Get the lead then let it rain.

  • Some Asshole

    Joe Blanton is alive? Thought he died in that shootout at the Piggly Wiggly….

  • CanoHeDidnt

    Is it just me or has Dave Eiland aged like 20 years since he was a Yankee?

    • CashmanNinja

      He sold his soul to punch A.J. Burnett in the eye.

      • Some Asshole

        Worth it.

    Duffy is done rain or no rain. A rain delay may get CC out of the game. If it gets postponed, then runs won’t help, it won’t be official. So lets hope Headleys 3 run blast is not wasted

    Not to be racist, but the sky there is turning dark quick. It’s gonna get fun.

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    Challenge! 1. He’s on the bag. 2. It’s the neighborhood play. He should be automatically out.

    That was a terrible throw.

    • Asher Dratel

      But challenge that.

        Well it looked like a fast moving system, just based on how quickly the cloud cover developed. Lot of short, but intense rains. The slower, gentler, longer rains are something I miss about being back east.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Last week I’d be begging for CC to stay in through 8 to save one of Betances & Miller, now I want them to come in ASAP for CC cause they need the work.

    Alright, here’s the gameplan for both sides:

    CC for 7th, Betances for 8th, Miller for 9th & save
    Davis & Holland for 2 IP total with no runs

    BREAK!

    • JacobyWanKenobi

      ORRRRRRRRRRRR davis can give up 12 runs

      Some Non-Dellin body was warming in the pen this inning so I’d guess so

    • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

      If we score, definitely.

      If not, i’d rather bring in Dellin and let him start clean.

  • RetroRob

    When did the Yankees announce A-Rod is never playing 3B again?

    • GregD

      When he tweaked his hamstring, they decided to work Drew out at third

      • RetroRob

        That’s fine, and I’m sure they’re also planning ahead for when Ryan is cut and Refsnyder is up and Drew will be the jack-of-all-infield positions.

        Yet Kay said NEVER. I doubt they said never.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          The goal is to never have to play him at 3B, but saying never like it’s actually never is wrong

          • RetroRob

            Makes sense. I don’t like having players on the roster that can never be deployed beyond DH, so I still think it’s to their advantage to every once in a while put him out there, but restrict it heavily.

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              Right now he can’t with his injury but after he’s healed, agreed

              • RetroRob

                Maybe a couple days off will do him and that leg well.

                And listening to Kay outline the schedule, looks like he’ll be off for four days next week beyond a pinch hit.

    • argenys

      I think it was late last week. Especially since they don’t want to lose his bat and they normally gave him a day off after playing on the field. Also helps that he got over the mental hurdle of not playing everyday on the field, fully embraced his role. Maybe he can join the ultra small list of good DHs of Victor and Papi

      • RetroRob

        Must have missed it. Yet my guess is we will see A-Rod play 3B again at some point.

        • argenys

          No, Girardi said full time DH.
          Specifically on WFAN

          • RetroRob

            I don’t believe him. : -) Baseball is baseball. Never is a word I would hesitate to use.

            • argenys

              He actually said in a pinch he would but he would exhaust all other possibilities first. So you can go to sleep knowing you’re right

              • RetroRob

                He’s wisely managing expectations so no one will ask. Baseball being what it is, I suspect there will be an interleague game this year, or a injury at the wrong point where A-Rod will need to be out there. My point is hopefully A-Rod keeps ready. Rosters are too thin nowadays to carry just a DH. Even Ortiz wears the leather 5 or 6 games a year.

                • argenys

                  Probably a situation where he hasn’t had a small nagging issue for a week or two straight.

    CC’s biggest problem this year has been HR’s and RHB’ers. Pitchers park and a lineup with not a lot of power, especially from the right side, works in his favor. Good effort though, they needed a W here with Capuano going tomorrow against the Royals ace

    FUCK YOU/LOVE YOU A-ROD! YOU JUST TOOK A SAVE AWAY FROM MY FANTASY TEAM BUT I LOVE YOU SO ITS OKAY!

  • CashmanNinja

    That looked like vintage A-Rod.

  • http://www.linesinmyhead.blogspot.com Judgielo – The Future

    AROD! Oppo field power!!

  • YankeeFan™

    holy crap Arod strong

  • JacobyWanKenobi

    Lol i thought that was off the tip of his bat

  • JacobyWanKenobi

    WAIT IT’S NOT A SAVE SITUATION ANYMORE

    • JacobyWanKenobi

      Rip in pieces @masahiro_nakamura:disqus

  • Asher Dratel

    How the hell did that hit get out, at the K especially.

  • dave_8

    C’mon, score a few more and bring Mitchell in to mop up.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I can’t believe that went out, damnnnn

    Think that makes it 9 Solo’s out of 10 homers

  • blake

    There is the backspin again…..it just carries and carries

  • ruralbob

    Take that, ya filthy animal.

  • http://www.linesinmyhead.blogspot.com Judgielo – The Future

    Imagine if Arod had the stache…

    • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

      He’d have 20hrs by now.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    OH DIDI UR GONNA MAKE ME BLOW EVERYWHERE!!

  • Tyler

    That swing was 2007 Arod. Just carries out to right center.

    • RetroRob

      He seemed to lose some of that opposite field power the year or so before he had the hip surgery. When he came back late in 2013 post surgery he hit some balls well to the opposite field, which was a great sign. It’s obviously remained with the year off.

  • http://www.linesinmyhead.blogspot.com Judgielo – The Future

    Didi double! Stat padder!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Loopy swing right there

  • dota

    Didi can handle AAA pitching

    • dave_8

      I thought he’d go for 3rd — being that there’s 2 outs and all.

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Didi!

  • David Ortiz Milkshake

    CENTAUR WARNING!!

    • Some Asshole

      Ortiz drank his shake this morning.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Interesting that Girardi put Didi in Beltran’s spot and Gardner in Pirela’s

  • NYCORNERSTONE

    Didi just needs to bat 5th every day

  • argenys

    Not implying anything, but didn’t y’all know last year DiDi was barely behind Trout in Hard Hit Rate?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      So Didi is the next Trout?

      • argenys

        Take from it what you’d like ;)

        • JacobyWanKenobi

          So Didi is gonna get a 300MM extension and win an mvp next year?

          • Tony Wilson

            What a ridiculously meaningless stat!!! Lol

      • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

        Imagine Trout playing SS.

      • argenys

        Here ya go
        “Gregorius had a hard-hit rate of 20.4 percent. He was one of 34 players to have at least 250 plate appearances this past season and a 20 percent hard-hit rate.

        That list includes just about all of the game’s elite sluggers. Gregorius’ hard-hit rate was a match for that of Justin Upton and Mike Trout, and one-tenth of a point behind Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Bautista”

      • NYCORNERSTONE

        Didi could be a real good hitter he has a whip

      • Tony Wilson

        LMAO!!!

    • blake

      Hit Vlo ….Didi the last month hasn’t been anything to complain about. The D has come around and he’s starting to contribute some at the plate

  • JacobyWanKenobi

    KC can play defense really damn well, I guess that’s what having young, movable bodies does for you

    • CashmanNinja

      They are what the Yankees wish they could be.

  • HoopDreams

    Arod always the villian. Costing Miller saves n shit

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Actually quite a killer for me

      • BearNJ

        you’ll live buddy.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Oh thank god…. Thought I was a goner!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    As you can see, this is a very important series for the Yoan-Moans.

    • Some Asshole

      You are nothing without Mookie Betts!!

  • JacobyWanKenobi

    FWIW good stuff for Joe Blanton, he came back and pitched well, must feel pretty good

  • RetroRob

    A-Rod reaches double-digit HRs by mid-May, words I no way expected to write heading into spring training.

    • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

      Before the season, 15 homeruns sounds like the optimistic result.

      • RetroRob

        That was my optimistic hope, but I recognized the issues. I was most concerned by the year off.

        BTW Are you in the Philippines now, of have you moved here from the Philippines?

        • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

          In the Philippines now.

          • RetroRob

            Ahh, waking up to Sunday morning baseball!

            • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

              Yes indeed. 7am games most of the time. Great way to start a day (if we win).

              • RetroRob

                When in Europe for business, it’s difficult to ever watch night games here. A 7pm ET game starts at either midnight or 1 am. Might catch an inning. It’s easier when traveling to Singapore. Games on in the morning. Well, easier outside I might be in a work office!

    • BearNJ

      I didn’t think he would struggle and be useless like Mike did but I thought it would be at best 20-22 HRs. His power eye and OBP has been tremendous.

      • blake

        He looked pretty bad the last time we saw him…..then he didn’t play for like almost 2 years. It was impossible to know what he’d be…..

        • RetroRob

          I was very encouraged the last time we saw him up until the leg injuries. He showed he could still turn on heat and drive the ball to the opposite field. So, yes, after the calf issue (I think it was the calf, or maybe a quad) he lost the ability to drive the ball, but that didn’t concern me since there was an explanation. I would have been concerned if I hadn’t seen him when he was healthy. Yet adding in the year off was a great unknown (and in his late 30s.) History says that’s a killer. Jeter certainly lost quite a bit.

    • blake

      nobody did

      • bernbabybern

        I thought he could hit 20-25, possibly 30 if healthy enough. The bat speed and batting avg was the unknown for me. His power wasn’t going to disappear unless he was injured somehow.

        • argenys

          Huh? Without bat speed they’re is no power.

  • blake

    Arod has always hit fly balls that just seem to keep going….especially to CF and RF…..they look like routine fly balls that just keep going and going until they go over the fence. It’s because of his swing…..and how strong he is…but it’s mostly his swing plane and how he spins the ball

    • dave_8

      Cabrera has that too. And he doesn’t swing nearly as hard as A-Rod.

      • blake

        Miggy is the other guy that does it yea….both guys get crazy backspin

  • Asher Dratel

    A Royals-esque play by Tex there!

    • JacobyWanKenobi

      That’d be Above-Average first basemen Mark Teixeira to you

      • HoopDreams

        He’s no Mike Napoli. /s

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Of course. Mike Napoli is the Ozzie Smith of first baseman after all.

          • JacobyWanKenobi

            He’s more of the Will Smith of first baseman, all of his highlights just add up to a bad movie

          • hansdee

            I heard something similar on ESPN.

        • JacobyWanKenobi

          Thank god for that

  • blake

    CC such a huge performance tonight…..awesome of the big man to step up and be the stopper

  • Hankflorida

    We had a discussion today earlier on the blog that the only way the Yankees seem to beat the shift is to hit home runs. The Bronx Mini Bombers just don’t get enough of them to be consistent.

    • JacobyWanKenobi

      Almost sure they’re near the top in home runs

    • Since_77

      Proven winning formula in the Bronx – hit home runs and good left handed pitching.

      • Hankflorida

        That is the formula but will still call them The Bronx Mini Bombers to remind me when they have trouble scoring more then two runs a game.

    • blake

      McCann does some

  • http://www.linesinmyhead.blogspot.com Judgielo – The Future

    Losing streak over!

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Start spreading the news!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    If we can just go 2 out 3 for the next 3 games of this road trip it’ll be 4-5 road trip which would be great all things considered.

  • YankeeFan™

    good win lets win tommorow

  • JacobyWanKenobi

    BALLGAME OVER YANKEES WIN THEEEEEEEEEE YANKEEESSSSSS Find a new person to call radio games. Ruocco? I like him!

  • argenys

    Was that Miller’s first 97MPH of the season?

  • Barzini

    I love it when you call me big poppa

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Let’s go for the series win tomorrow.

  • Some Asshole

    DrunFanMode: On

    BAH DA DA DUH DUH!! BAH DA DA DUH DUH!!

    START SPREADING THE NEWS! I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT….YAN-KEES, yan-kees….

    zzzzzz……Yankees…

  • blake

    Betances and miller are ridiculous

  • Tony Wilson

    Great game CC, I guess you aren’t as bad as some think. Thanks Headley for finally getting a meaningful hit and keep up the resurgence Beltran!

  • dkidd

    thanks to everyone who spent the entire thread shitting on the team you supposedly root for. good job, good effort

    • Some Asshole

      Wouldn’t be a Game Thread without ’em.

      • HoopDreams

        Doomed! Doomed I say!

    • Tony Wilson

      Couldn’t agree more!!!!

    • RetroRob

      It’s always that way. Yet most fans aren’t that way, but those who are have a tendency to be vocal. Imagine if they weren’t in first place, now back up by 2.

      We all know the issues the team has, but I don’t understand how fans can’t enjoy their team and are always looking for a reason to complain and be miserable.

    • hansdee

      Here, here! (Gulps large glass of Bourbon not quite sure what he’s cheering about). Its all good!

  • Robinson Tilapia
  • Some Asshole

    I think this is the first time the Raging Assholes were not last in ERA, if even for a moment. This brand reboot is working wonders.

  • GregD

    Best game from CC tonight
