Game 41: Slade’s Debut

2015 Draft: Chris Betts
DotF: Judge and Jagielo return in Trenton's loss
(Presswire)
(Presswire)

This day has been a long-time coming. The Yankees selected Slade Heathcott out of a Texas high school with the 29th pick in the 2009 draft — the compensation pick they received for failing to sign Gerrit Cole in 2008 — and tonight he can finally say he’s a big leaguer. To say the road from Texarkana to the Bronx was rocky would be a massive understatement.

Heathcott, now 24, had a turbulent upbringing and hit rock bottom soon after being drafted, when he battled alcoholism and even missed a flight to Instructional League because he’d been out drinking. The Yankees sent Heathcott to Alcoholics Anonymous in April 2010, and while that helped him deal with his substance abuse issues, Slade’s body started to betray him. Multiple knee and shoulder surgeries limited Heathcott to 306 minor league games from 2010-14. He played nine last year due to knee problems.

Now, after being non-tendered in the offseason and returning to the organization on a minor league contract, Heathcott is with the Yankees, having impressed in Spring Training and again during his stint with Triple-A Scranton. It has been almost six years since the Yankees drafted Heathcott, and during those six years he went from multimillionaire first round pick to an underdog. Tonight, all the hard work finally pays off. He’s in the show. Give ’em hell, Slade.

Here is the Nationals lineup — Jordan Zimmermann is starting for Washington, not A.J. Cole, so boo to that — and here is the Yankees lineup. Heathcott is on the bench for his first game:

  1. LF Brett Gardner
  2. RF Carlos Beltran
  3. 1B Mark Teixeira
  4. C Brian McCann
  5. 3B Chase Headley
  6. 2B Stephen Drew
  7. CF Chris Young
  8. SS Didi Gregorius
  9. RHP Adam Warren

It’s cloudy and cool in Washington, so not perfect weather, but there won’t be any rain. That’s coming tomorrow. The Yankees are getting out of town just in time. Tonight’s game will start a bit after 7pm ET and you can watch on YES. Enjoy.

Roster Moves: As expected, Chase Whitley (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL to clear a 40-man roster spot for Heathcott, the Yankees announced. The team still has another 60-day DL candidate in Brendan Ryan (calf, hamstring) should they need another 40-man spot.

Injury Updates: Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) said the injury is to the outside of his knee and he is wearing a brace. He’ll see the team doctor on Friday and they won’t know his timetable until then. For what it’s worth, Joe Girardi said the injury is “not something that requires surgery” … Ivan Nova (elbow) threw four innings and 42 pitches in an Extended Spring Training game on Monday. He’ll make another ExST start on Saturday and could begin an official 30-day minor league rehab stint after that … Ryan has resumed baseball activities in Tampa.

  • D$

    Damn. Was really hoping to see Slade start. Maybe a double switch candidate?

  • cashmoney

    I am surprised that yanks did not promote flores , but curious to see what kind of speed power combo slade posseses.

    • RetroRob

      I would guess part of it is the skillset. Heathcott is a legit CFer and they just lost a CFer. More speed, too, if looking for someone to come in off the bench to run. Last, they’re probably also looking for every opportunity to assess Heathcott this year, although he is now back on the 40-man roster, so they don’t have to worry about that decision later in the year.

      • cashmoney

        That’s pretty much what I deduce as well. The other side of the coin is yanks need offense and have two in house cf. But whatever, slade was touted as a tool player whose career has been marred by injury. we see…

  • vin

    Nice write-up for Sladerunner.

  • dkidd

    you made it, slade

  • RetroRob

    My guess is they’ll have Slade debut at home in NY against a lesser being than Jordan Zimmermann. Colby Lewis is scheduled to start Friday for the Rangers. They’ll hopefully give him an opp to appear at some point tonight to get that behind him.

    • HoopDreams

      That, and it would be cool to see him get his first hit in the bronx

    • LazerTown

      Lesser pitcher?
      Colby is an ace.

      ALL: Colby Lewis is available for the right price in fantasty.

  • joeman

    good luck to Slade..stay healthy kid

  • Barzini

    Beautifully put, Mike.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Slade’s not starting?! Girardi clearly has doomed him to the bench where he’ll bust. HE COULDA BEEN SOMETHING!

    • RetroRob

      I understand they cut him before first pitch.

      • Dalek Jeter

        It’s all because Girardi, Cashman, and Hal are trying to lose on purpose so they can move the team to Florida.

        • Some Asshole

          They’re gonna share Tropicana Field.

      • dkidd

        that was a misprint
        he actually cut himself shaving and somehow ruptured his acl

    • CashmanNinja

      He coulda been a contender!

    • LazerTown

      They sent to sit in the bullpen to keep Carpenter company.

    • Some Asshole

      Another prospect ruined by Girardi. The Yankees don’t play anyone under 30!

  • HoopDreams

    BTW, Tanaka’s rehab start will be on yes tomorrow.

  • Ewing33

    Bad pitching matchup, seems like everything is going against us … we probably get the win tonight.

  • captainmike
  • dkidd

    who put the yes camera on a blimp?

  • CashmanNinja

    Beltran is alive!

    • Ewing33

      Finally some babip luck for him … soft liner

      • CashmanNinja

        God bless that Beltranian defense from Span :)

        • Ewing33

          hahah .. yea

  • Beauee

    Gritner can really fly.

  • joeman

    make it stop

  • Dalek Jeter

    Okay, Ellsbury is the team’s best position player…but Sterling just said “by far” and that seems to be the prevalent belief…why does Gardner get so little love? Like unless we’re talking about how terrible Ells’ contract is, when suddenly they’re the same player, “Ellsbury is by far the Yankees best player.”

    • Beauee

      They are almost identical. Ells has a little more contact ability, but Gardy has more power.

      • Dalek Jeter

        I agree, and Ells is slightly better…but not “by far” maybe like…half a win over the course of a year better.

        • Beauee

          Yep. This makes Gardner one of the best contract deals out there.

    • cashmoney

      It’s john sterling, who prefers dramatics over details.. it’s is high , it is far ..oh I am fucking blind. Then again, waldman’s is worse.

  • RetroRob

    Interesting the Yankees have resisted putting Gardner in CF so far this year. Part of it I’m guessing is Chris Young is a CFer, so they may just want to keep Gardner used to where he’s playing. Probably won’t change with Heathcott on the team since he’s also a natural CFer.

  • Pete22

    Not something that requires surgery. Isn’t that what they said about Beltran last year? For a guy who relies on his legs, knee injuries are scary.

    Yankees RF’er, 2Bman and 3Bman are all last in the AL in WAR (qualified players only) . All show signs of recent life though

  • Dalek Jeter

    But Beltran’s dead?

    • CashmanNinja

      Beltran is like disco. Dead…but every now and then makes a slight resurgence, only to die again.

      • Some Asshole

        Good thing I’m looking forward to going to the Beltrantheque this weekend.

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        DISCO SUCKS!

  • CashmanNinja

    Beltran scored on a sac fly? Now I’ve seen everything.

  • Beauee

    How is that possible……….

  • Ewing33

    Beltran’s still got some decent straight line speed

  • HoopDreams

    I thought for sure Beltran’s slow ass was meat

  • Mustang

    “For what it’s worth, Joe Girardi said the injury is “not something that requires surgery”

    I been looking for Ellsbury MRI results all day on the net with zero information. Its nice that Joe said something, but since when has the Yankees become the CIA when comes to player injuries.

    • Ewing33

      The news definitely seems to slowly get a little worse each time we hear something new. Hopefully this isn’t the classic two week Yankee injury that turns into 6 weeks

      • Mustang

        Sure seem like the Yankees injury “The old Nixon two-step”

    • Mustang

      Ellsbury: “They literally haven’t told me anything”

      They are not even telling Ellsbury!
      LOL

      • Some Asshole

        He really oughta get the surgery anyway, even before he gets his diagnosis.

        • Mustang

          Explain please?

          • Some Asshole

            Every injury requires surgery, sooner rather than later. Same for Tanaka, Whitley, and Judge, even though his was just a sore leg or something. Surgeries for everybody! My dad the oncologist said so.

            • Mustang

              OH!
              This your WebMD degree talking. Sorry completely went over my head.
              Got it.

  • joeman

    and knee surgery sucks

  • Todd

    Getting naceous watching the throw from CF from the blimp….

  • Beauee

    Warren is going to go 6IP, 3ER, 2BB, 4H. And one balk.

  • Pete22

    Nice start to the game

  • Dalek Jeter

    There’s your 2 runs Warren.

  • RetroRob

    Why was Joe looking disgusted and shaking his head there?

    • Barzini

      got to be that 3-1 strike call

    • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Probably the strike two call at Headley’s shins.

      • RetroRob

        Ok, that makes sense. I stepped out of the room and missed that pitch.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Now we know why it was called a strike.

          • RetroRob

            Hmmm, I joined the Rangers game the other night and they subsequently went on to have one of their worst games in a while. I’m out last night, arrive home, turn the TV on just in time to see the game-ending HR flying out of the park. I step out of the room for a second tonight, walk back in to see Headley strike out, which Girardi shaking his head in disgust.
            What’s your point?

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              Nothing… I don’t feel like ruining your life by telling you that you’re a jynx to every team you love.

    • Dalek Jeter

      Ellsbury needs his leg cut off above the knee.

      • CashmanNinja

        He’ll still be faster than McCann.

    • HoopDreams

      Because chase swung at a pitch at his hips

  • joeman

    Warren could have a tough night

    • Ewing33

      at least he gets the pitcher

      • Some Asshole

        Opposing pitcher hits 3 homers tonight.

        • Ewing33

          hahah … I will take full blame then

      • joeman

        thats true

  • Barzini

    Unbelievable that strike call. god damn

  • D$

    Ok, so last night we took to heart the lesson to have more than 2 runs. Tonight, we will learn to have more than 6.

  • YankeesJunkie

    Warren can be the third reliever pretty easily, his position in the MLB team is pretty safe.

    • RetroRob

      I’d like to believe that, but I still think he’s a back-end starter at best, and most likely better suited for the pen. Those are the things I like to be wrong about.

  • Beauee

    Well, at least this series is helping my fantasy team…

  • Blurrario

    In play, (runs) :(

  • Barzini

    Well that’s one of the hardest balls ive ever seen hit

    • Todd

      Guess you didn’t watch Eovaldi getting shelled last night…

    • Veteran presents

      Meatball right down the middle will get crushed 24/7

  • Todd

    Man the ball flies out of this place…

  • Beauee

    I feel like we need ten runs in this place in order to win.

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    How many leads are we going to piss away? They’re going to need to put up at least 10 runs.

    • Veteran presents

      Isn’t that always the case?

  • RetroRob

    Anyone feel good about Warren facing Harper? Step forward, please. : -)

    • Some Asshole

      Harper, 0-4 with 13 strikeouts. Called it.

  • joeman

    their staff is in trouble

  • D$

    If we could just average 10 runs per game, I think we’d be safe.

  • RetroRob

    Since I missed last night’s game, were there problems with the strike zone being called?

  • Captain Clutch

    Eovaldi and Warren back to back in the rotation is absolute torture. It’s like clock work…score a run give up a run the next inning..

  • CashmanNinja

    Thought Didi got him…

  • D$

    Didi – try harder.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      GOD DAMNIT DIDI EVERY DAMN TIME

  • RetroRob

    Respectable? That’s a 125 RBI pace, Michael.

  • Todd

    I’d rather see Sergio Mitre on the mound than Eovaldi and Warren…

    • Some Asshole

      BS. I calls it.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        He’s shit. Or is the correct saying full of shit?

        • Some Asshole

          The shit is full of him.

          • D$

            The him full shit is of!

            • Some Asshole

              In Soviet Russia!

            • Some Asshole

              In Soviet Russia!

    • Beauee

      No, no you would not. Sergio Mitre ruined my birthday at Yankee Stadium.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Now we know why it happened.

      • YankeesJunkie

        Mitre was awful, Eovaldi is erractic and frustrating, and Warren is peforming what is expected a #5 starter.

        • Beauee

          Life was good. It was my birthday and I was at the stadium. Yankees were doing well. And then they lost…because of Mitre. Ever since, he has been known to me only as the Killer of Dreams.

    • Dalek Jeter

      Yeah. Okay. I totally believe this.

  • D$

    No, Michael, his nickname is not “Mr Walkoff.” In order for that to be a true statement, people would need to call him that.

    • Some Asshole

      People in his head?

  • Dalek Jeter

    Warren’s all over the place to start the game…

  • Captain Clutch

    Warren has to be replaced in the rotation asap. His stuff isn’t good enough and he doesn’t give them any length at all.

    • Dalek Jeter

      He’s in until Tanaka comes back. Who else is there? Mitchell? Esmil?

      • Leftballer

        Mitchell needs about 3 more starts before he’s “ready’

      • Leftballer

        Mitchell needs about 3 more starts before he’s “ready’

  • Andy

    following on gamecast, does warren look as bad as it is showing?

  • Leftballer

    I’d rather watch Bryan Mitchell at this point do exactly what Warren is doing especially if he can’t give the team innings.

  • Todd

    Desmond looked like he was swinging a golf club…..

  • D$

    Drew saves the day!

    • Mike Ehrmantrout

      When I think Drew, I think winner. They’re synonymous with one another.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        This is what they mean when they call someone insane folks. God help him.

        • Mike Ehrmantrout

          For those that missed it, the lead based paint chips aren’t the same as the oil based ones. Clearly…

          • Some Asshole

            One is tastier than the other.

            • D$

              I believe the new ones come in Cooler Ranch

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            You meant potato chips

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        This is what they mean when they call someone insane folks. God help him.

      • WhittakerWalt

        Did somebody actually say that?

        • Mike Ehrmantrout

          I tell myself that every Drew AB, it makes them more palatable.

    • Some Asshole

      Certainly better than Stephen Droo. God, that guy sucks.

  • Mike Ehrmantrout

    Yay! An out!

  • Dalek Jeter

    27 pitches in the first…yeesh. Hopefully he can go 5?

  • Dalek Jeter

    27 pitches in the first…yeesh. Hopefully he can go 5?

      Before the game I had him at 6, with 2 walks, 4 hits, and a balk. So far so good.

      • Dalek Jeter

        Needs a few very efficient innings to go 6. Not impossible, but 17 balls verse 10 strikes (including some swinging on pitches out of the zone).

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Do you think that on the plane rides to games that they make fun of each other for their twitter statuses? Like Didi will be like “Spread the news, Yankees win” and someone will just say out loud “Spread the news guys” to mess with him?

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Yeah probably. I find it funny thinking of random conversations they’d have sometimes

    • Ewing33

      I don’t see how he couldn’t have all his options years remaining, but I admittedly don’t know the MLB rules like that because they are insane and seem to even get changed on like appeals for more option years.

      • D$

        I would think there is some sort of discontinuity if he was released and resigned.

        • Ewing33

          Yea, makes sense. Falls under minor league free agent rules?

      If they option him down he’ll lose another year. That’s why I think it’s possible he’ll be with the team for the remainder of the season

    • Dalek Jeter

      He lasted 3 pitches before K’ing…

      • WhittakerWalt

        NATIONAL LEAGUE STRATEGY!!!

    • D$

      You still get mail?

  • RetroRob

    How exciting. Adam Warren batting. I’ll go outside to pick up my mail now.

  • HoopDreams

    Damn, was expecting a two run shot

  • CashmanNinja

    At least Warren struck out on a worthy pitch. Much less embarrassing than swinging at something far out of the zone and looking like a fool.

  • Veteran presents

    I hate this pitchers hitting shit.

    • Omar

      Warren: thank god,at least I got a chance at one easy out.

  • Dalek Jeter

    At least they cleared the pitcher…gotta love the strategy of having an almost automatic out right guys?

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I don’t care if I offend anyone, if you think that the DH is stupid you are a fucking idiot and I hope you choke on your own saliva every time you think about how great pitcher’s hitting is. I cannot respect someone’s baseball opinion if they dislike the DH, I just can’t.

    • W.B. Mason Williams

      Tell me how you really feel

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Well to be perfectly honest I don’t hate pitcher’s hitting because it’s boring, something happened to me as a kid that made me forever hate the rule.

        So I was playing in little league and we usually had the DH and one game they decide no DH. So our pitcher goes up to hit and he bunted the ball straight up in the air. STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR. Well this ball goes up like 50 feet high and then comes down and drops in right in front of me while I am standing on 3B as a baserunner. I wasn’t expecting the ball to land near me so I kicked it away in fear. I was then called out and they all beat me up because of it nearly 5 years later.

        This is why I hate pitcher’s hitting.

    • Beauee

      My dad doesn’t like the DH, but he’s old. And he likes the Mets.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Old people get an exception from my hatred but if you’re under 30 and hate the DH, you suck.

  • Leftballer

    Why would you sit breaking ball? (Tyler Moore).

    • Dalek Jeter

      Because you know a pitcher likes to start a guy with an offspeed pitch, or that the pitcher is having trouble locating their fastball?

      • Leftballer

        Must be something they picked up on in the scouting reports.

  • Tony Wilson

    Great to see Beltran ‘s bat alive again, he looks locked in and his production would be huge!!!! Keep it going Carlos!!!!!

  • goose

    Seeing a pitcher hit in today’s game has to be one of the dumbest things about baseball. It just doesn’t make sense. Not for health. Not for the offense. Not for anything.

    • YankeesJunkie

      Strategy.

  • dkidd

    twins or astros, who’s more “for real”?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Astros by far

    • Beauee

      Astros. The Twins only have like two good players on their team (pitchers and hitters combined).

    • Dalek Jeter

      Astros, at least guys like Springer, Altuve, and even Castro are supposed to be good. The Twins are all smoke and mirrors.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    OMG I’M HAVING SO MUCH FUN RIGHT NOW DID YOU SEE THAT PERFECTLY EXECUTED BUNT? MY GOD.

    • YankeesJunkie

      The NL is so strategic, what a great style of play.

  • D$

    For the sake of my manhood, I hope the Yankees win. For the sake of my fantasy squad, I hope Wilson Ramos comes up with two outs every time, hits only triples and gets stranded at third, and Zimm strikes out every batter for the next 7 innings.

    edit: Manhood was supposed to say “fanhood”. But that works just as well.

  • Veteran presents

    Zimmerman has 15 RBIs, Drew has 12.

    • D$

      Cosmic inflation.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I think NL pitchers want pitchers hitting because it bails them out so many damn times every game.

  • Pkyankfan69

    GGDG!

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    I just don’t understand why Tony Pena doesn’t sit Brian McCann down and work with him on blocking pitches. How many runs has he cost us this year?

    • Leftballer

      28

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        More

    • Dalek Jeter

      164. He calls the pitches so all the runs are his fault.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Nice, only 7 pitches for Warren that inning.

    • YankeesJunkie

      Giradi told Warren you are expandable I will ride your bitch to 150 pitches if I have to.

  • Ewing33

    Beer league softball webgem!

  • RetroRob

    It was an out, but at least it included some slapstick comedy.

  • Mike Ehrmantrout

    NL baseball…so exciting to see bunts with one out and a guy on first. NL has the distinct advantage in these affairs due to the fact their pitchers hit every fifth game as opposed to 5 ABs per year, if they’re lucky on the AL side. Fuck you NL baseball. You may now resume your regularly scheduled game thread.

  • D$

    Did you guys ever notice that Drew rhymes with doo. And if you say doo twice, it means shit?

    • CashmanNinja

      Then what is the equivalent of saying “Drew Drew”?

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        He’s twice the amount of Doo Doo

      • D$

        I’m going to ponder that while I take a drew drew.

    • Dalek Jeter

      Interesting. I don’t know what this means guys, but it’s important.

    • Dalek Jeter

      666 is the number of the devil. 6+6+6 is 18. 18 is Didi’s number. Spooky stuff you guys.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        • Dalek Jeter

          Hey, I don’t know what this means, I’m just dispensing the information DIDI IS THE ANTIJETER COME TO RAIN DOOM ON THE YANKEE UNIVERSE It’s up to everybody else to form their own opinions.

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            It means I dislike you AND your comment. Okay, fine, just you the comment.

      • Veteran presents

        Everything about Didi is spooky, especially his hitting, defense and fielding.

      • NYCORNERSTONE

        Arod hits 666 6/6/15

  • Captain Clutch

    Is there a good reason why Slade isn’t playing today?

    • bernbabybern

      No

    • Dalek Jeter

      Weren’t you one of the people begging for CY to start?

      • HoopDreams

        I believe they are gonna get platooned

        • Dalek Jeter

          Wouldn’t Slade be starting against the righty then?

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            Yes, which is good

          • Tar

            Joe is saving him for that key, game winning pinch hit spot.

          • HoopDreams

            Jzimm is tough. Idk, maybe he’s in the Gardner 08 role

          • HoopDreams

            All I know is Young has sucked against eighties his whole career, it would be ideal imo

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              Since when have our grandparents played baseball?

        • Ewing33

          I think Heathcott is just going to be the straight fourth outfielder and play when someone needs a rest.

          • Dalek Jeter

            I think the same.

          • Hankflorida

            I think that is the best take on Girardi’s plan till Ells get back. Go with the veteran Young and hope he gives them another six home runs.

    • Ewing33

      Chris Young is better than him

      • Captain Clutch

        How do we know that? He will get exposed the more that he plays. Give the kid a chance..

        • Ewing33

          Don’t know it. Just my opinion, and my guess on the reason he isn’t playing over Young. Which would be a “good reason” ha

        • Leftballer

          His .073 ISO in AAA says hello!

          Zimmerman would knock the bat out of his hands.

  • Leftballer

    Yankee Stadium needs to implement these camera angles during thier home games.

    Feels like I’m watching the live version of Tommy Lasorda Baseball for the Sega Genesis.

  • WhittakerWalt

    As much as I can’t stand Sterling and Waldman, at least they make fun of pitchers batting too.

  • Veteran presents

    Aw crap, I just realized we scored 2 runs in the top of the first………..

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Welp

  • HoopDreams

    Welp. I guess the offense got their work in tonight

    • Ewing33

      Those two runs were basically a gift too.

      • RetroRob

        A gift? Gardner got a hit, Beltran drilled a double, Tex moved the runner over, and a sac fly. Seems like normal baseball.

  • Beauee

    We shouldn’t have traded away Big Game David Phelps. We kept the wrong guy.

  • HoopDreams

    Whoa. That fancy bat flipping thing Escobar was doing had me mesmerized

  • RetroRob

    Since I missed last night’s game this is the first time watching the Yankees play on TV there. The park looks large, but I don’t think it plays large. Second, there seems to be weird camera angles, and by weird I mean not good. I did like the overview shot though.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      The camera on the field is higher

  • Stephen Drew’s # 1 Fan

    If only we had two Stephen Drews batting back to back. Sigh. I can only dream.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Please go to the doctor…

      • Stephen Drew’s # 1 Fan

        The lump keeps getting bigger, it may be because I changed my desktop wallpaper to a pic of Stephen Drew.

        • D$

          Are you growing a Stephen Drew on your neck?

          That would be ironic…it being a parasite and all. You know…sucking the life out of you.

  • Captain Clutch

    Good throw Harper out. We don’t have to deal with him…

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Is Harper out? Cause that’d be fucking stupid

  • CashmanNinja

    Hmmmmm. Thank you.

  • Pkyankfan69

    Yay!

  • D$

    “Get in the fucking box”

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      If that’s what he said to Harper, that’s un-afucking-ceptable.

      • The Other Matt

        It is. It is unacceptable but at the same time it’s only human nature that if you’re cursed at and chastised long enough, that eventually you’ll reply with a few choice words of your own. Not saying that he is justified, but I definitely could understand.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      Just fine him, to toss him over that…wow. He put his foot in, then was tossed. Just wow.

      • The Other Matt

        At the same time, he was being a bit childish when he tapped his foot in the box for a brief moment. I love Harper and his personality, but he has to realize he has built a bit of a reputation and umpires do seem to have a short leash when he says something, whether it be fair or unfair.

        • Refsnyder > Drew

          No doubt it was childish, but to toss him over that is also childish and I expect some players to have a certain swag but umps should just do their job and let the players play. It didn’t seem like Harper deserved that.

  • Mustang

    Typical Warren outing just waiting to see when the shoe will drop and how hard.
    LOL

    • Dalek Jeter

      Dropped in the first. He picked his ass up and is pitching well since.

      • Mustang

        OH!
        Thanks missed the 1st.

        • Dalek Jeter

          He couldn’t throw a strike if his life depended on it. He threw like 27 pitches, 10 were strikes. At least 3 were swinging strikes outside the strikezone.

          • Mustang

            Yep, that’s the shoe dropping….LOL

            No worries Harper and National manager just made the strike zone twice as big for Warren.

  • The Other Matt

  • CashmanNinja

    And with that Adam Warren gets Harper ejected. What game planning.

  • Ewing33

    I’m not a lip reader but I think Harper said at first, “that was so fucking low.” Then refused to get back in the box when the ump was yelling at him like a maniac.

  • Mustang

    This all helps!!!

  • Mustang

  • Captain Clutch

    Harper is obviously very talented but he has a lot of growing up to do. He definitely acts his age.

  • Dalek Jeter

    WAIT DID HARPER JUST TOSSED?!

    • Beauee

      Haha yes.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    That’s stupid I’m not happy about this

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    What’s happening? It sucks “watching” games via Gameday.

    • Ewing33

      The truth is that Harper acted like a child after a bad call.

    • Dalek Jeter

      Sounds like at least Williams, possibly Harper have been tossed.

      • CashmanNinja

        Both are gone. And then Warren K’s the side.

      He’s a kid. He has a lot of maturing to do. BUt he is a great ballplayer, and the Ump definitely escalated that by telling him to get into the “fucking box.”

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        People come to watch the players, I know they’re subject to a fine if they leave the box (giggity) and all, but they don’t come to watch king shit umpires curse at players. We go to complain about Stephen Drew and watch Bryce Harper hit dingers.

          Harper essentially cursed the ump out about a bad call, and then Williams started yelling and eventually he told Harper to get back in the box and lets go and Harper just escalated it even more. He had his say, he should have just got back in the box

      It wasn’t even the strike itself. He was trying to show up the ump when the ump told him to step back in the box. Just do what the ump says…you don’t want to be on an ump’s bad side.

        • Ewing33

          Tough to say without knowing what Harper was saying. But it looked to me he was basically cursing the ump’s call right from the get go which can get you tossed.

            In fairness, it was an awful call

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              This. I’ll never side with an ump that makes a terrible call. He deserves to get shit on if his call sucks. If he doesn’t like it he can get good at his job.

    Umps an idiot. Throwing out the best player in baseball because he did not get back in the batter box. Obviously not happy with some of the calls this series. Games not about the umps, my 11 DFS teams will suffer costing me 100K. I wonder if the ump plays DFS for cash

  • Pkyankfan69

    • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

      ..until Harper is a Yankee?

      Can I get a yes?

      • Pete22

        Budget Hal will never spend the money needed for him

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          15/400, get it done.

          • YankeesJunkie

            Dave Cameron est 15/600 which is aggressive but 40 a year is not out of the realm for 10 years. He will do what ARod did with baseball contracts.

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              Agreed. Trout will break his record 2 years later. If Harper wants 10/350, he better get it from the Yankees.

              • YankeesJunkie

                Agreed. Trout is king until proven otherwise.

                • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    In a 162 season i would be doing that shit until they stop shifting then I would go back to swing regular.

  • Mustang

    In a 162 season i would be doing that shit until they stop shifting then I would go back to swing regular.

  • D$

    I just went back and watched the exchange. Why is McCann defending Harper. He made one of the most childish moves, when the ump told him to get back in the box (you know…that new rule where you can’t step out when all you do is take a pitch), he walked up and tapped his toe.

    • D$

      Don’t know why I typed McCann. Meant Kay.

      • WhittakerWalt

        They both have huge heads.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Because it’s stupid when it effects the game so heavily

    • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Penalty for stepping out when you aren’t supposed to is a fine, not an ejection.

      • D$

        Yea, I wasn’t referring to the rule breaking. I was referring to the blatant disrespect to the officiator when the officiator told him to follow the rules.

        • Beauee

          Harper shouldn’t have done that, but the ump didn’t exactly handle that situation very well. He escalated.

          • D$

            Yea, both were wrong. My argument is just that you could read Harper’s lips right after the strike call, and he was swearing at the ump.

            Bad move on Harper’s part. Not handled well by the ump. Must be in the middle of a divorce.

            • moctezuma

              The divorce is between MLB and human umps. Metrics are taking over the game but the balls and strikes are loaded with human error, inconsistency, and misplace emotion. Soon you will see it all computerized.

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        Exactly, and the language used towards the player doesn’t make one want to follow instructions either.

        • D$

          I believe the lips reading I read that started the whole thing was “That was bad. That was a fucking bad call.” He said/she said.

          • Refsnyder > Drew

            I’m gonna re-watch it, but still seems like the ump made it personal. Drew wouldn’t have done that <3

          • Ewing33

            Yea, Harper started cursing from the get go. Ump was a powder keg, ha. Williams should have been more peace maker but he just went for it all too. Classic baseball

          • Bo Knows

            Bryce wasn’t looking at the ump when he said it, it came off more like he was thinking aloud/talking to himself. The umpire pointing at Harper and then swearing at him was just an angry escalation. Harper said a no no but he wasn’t arguing and he wasn’t yelling. The ump was being a confrontational ass. Harper isn’t 100% blameless but nothing he did was close to deserving of an ejection.

    • Beauee

      Because Harper is a 22 year old kid. And the ump escalated the situation by telling him to get into “the fucking box.” Also, people don’t pay to see the ump. They pay to see Harper. If I was a fan I would be pissed.

      • Ewing33

        This isn’t the NBA though. You can’t argue balls and strikes like Harper just did. The ump was giving him a long leash and Harper was gonig at him like he could get T’d up and still play in the game.

        • Beauee

          I get it. I’m not saying Harper is blameless in the situation.

    • Bo Knows

      Harper stepped out when his Manager and the ump started going at it. When the ump then swore at him to “get back in the f’n box” (or what it appeared to be said) It looked like all he said when he tapped his foot there was that he was in the box.

      It wasn’t that big of a deal, but umpires are just petty.

      • Tar

        I think it was more about location of the pitch…not tapping his foot. that was all about arguing balls and strikes and not stepping out of the box…IMO

  • RetroRob

    I’m thinking an OF with Heathcott in center and Harper in right could lead to two players dying on a ball hit to right center.

    • Some Asshole

      Good thing the Yankees will only have two outfielders by then.

  • Tomcats4Ever

    And back to the game…the Yankees still can’t hit.

  • Tar

    That was all on Williams IMO. If he is going to make such a big deal, he needs to know his own player is kind of a hot head and will also get fired up. He needed to come out of the dugout and protect his player.

  • No 2013 again

    Glad to see Drew is still able to hit those lazy flyouts

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      Drew Drew!!

  • Walter Sobchak – Vietnam Vet

    Slade is probably jumping out of his skin watching what Bryce Harper did. Those two are cut from the same cloth personality wise. Both play the game intense

  • Tar

    I think Harper was saying “it was right there” meaning the location of the pitch, not tapping his foot in the box. He deserved to get tossed and his manager is to blame.

  • CashmanNinja

    That was like a Yankee Stadium HR :(

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    WTF, how did that get out. fuck this camera angle

    • D$

      Yea. WTF.

  • Tar

    That was lucky freaking HR.

  • Asher Dratel

    These swings…

  • Walter Sobchak – Vietnam Vet

    Ball has been flying out these last two games

    • Omar

      Yeah, and the mediocre yankee pitching might have something to do with it too.

      • D$

        Nope. I blame it all on the air. There is a lot of….hot air in DC after all.

  • Leftballer

    Well. I guess that’s why Moore was sitting breaking ball in his previous at bat.

  • Tomcats4Ever

    This game looks eerily familiar.

  • NH Yankee fan

    Yankee starters seem to like giving up bombs lately. Get the lead early, bats go silent, teams come back and win..

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Lol Joe Kelly blows

  • WhittakerWalt

    Crap

  • Walter Sobchak – Vietnam Vet

    How do the Rangers not know that Joe Kelley’s fastball is totally unhittable?

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I thought that was gone, fuck my Didi bias

  • Sccrkeepr34

    why does DIDI think he’s Babe?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Lol?

      • Sccrkeepr34

        that huge uppercut swing – he hits more like babe the pig, then the Bambino

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Cmon

  • Captain Clutch

    The bats have to wake up again. They seem to hit early in these games and then go to sleep. I guess once the pitcher settles in they can’t do crap.

    • Leftballer

      Jordan Zimmerman is really good at baseball.

      • Captain Clutch

        Well I guess game over…

  • WhittakerWalt

    Do we score again?

    • D$

      Tomorrow? The first inning is over.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      Maybe tomorrow?

    • Tomcats4Ever

      Maybe a few garbage time runs after their down big.

  • Veteran presents

    Now why doesn’t our hitter’s balls fly off the bat too?

  • No 2013 again

    Guess it’s not going to be 2×1.. We are screwed now

  • D$

    Well, shit.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    These fans are pissed off because of the ump now

    • D$

      Let them get pissed. They’ll get the angry aggressive years, and we’ll get the calmed more mature years.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Wow that was gross, rare you see Gardy do something like that

  • No 2013 again

    Is he even at 60 pitches? It’s likely we don’t score again

  • Hankflorida

    This team may have more famine then feast games and hope this game is not one of them.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    So if you are standing directly on 3B and you got a ball lined at you you’re out? That’s stupid

    • YankeesJunkie

      Yeah, but that is why you take your lead in foul territory, really you don’t need to be fair territory until right at or before home plate.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        What if you are just standing on the base though?

        • D$

          Then you’re safe if you’re touching the bag, no?

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            Sounded like he said that he’s out though. I’m pretty sure you’re safe no matter what if you are on the bag unless you stick your hand out purposely.

        • Tar

          You’re safe

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            Oh, Kay made it sound like he would be out

  • Leftballer

    So far … today’s highlights of D.O.T.F is … Gamel hitting a HR , Wade picking up two hits & … that’s about it.

    Very uneventful day on the farm today. Might be the first time that I can remember in quite sometime that the Yankees might lose a game at every level (MLB tied game /AAA lost/AA lost/High A trailing 5-4/Low A Lost).

  • Since_77

    5th inning is the problem inning for Warren.

    • NYCORNERSTONE

      And Evo

  • No 2013 again

    3rd time through a good lineup, I don’t think warren gets out of this inning tied

  • YankeesJunkie

    Teix is saying challenge!!!

  • NH Yankee fan

    Brassard!!!!!

  • YankeesJunkie

    he got him!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Umps probably have their egos murdered when players immediately ask for a challenge

  • CashmanNinja

    Looked like he got him

  • Ewing33

    Definitely out but greatest slo mo face ever by Teix, ha

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    He’s out

  • D$

    I think he missed. I don’t think he touched him on the swipe.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      I actually think it’s very clear

      • D$

        I made the original comment before the full slow motion move. Once they went slow motion, it was very clear. How the YES booth didn’t think it was so clear amazes me.

    • D$

      I am wrong. Yo can see the glove move when it hits the arm.

  • YankeesJunkie

    Good challenge! Not neccesarily overwhelming but a good call on Giradi’s part.

  • The Other Matt

    He got him, but it may not be conclusive.

    • The Other Matt

      Never mind. They got it right.

  • CashmanNinja

    I hate how neutral Kay and Flaherty are. “He looked out! But also safe!”

    • Some Asshole

      Flaherty comes from the beige planet.

      • CashmanNinja

        His favorite Italian Ice flavor is ice.

  • Asher Dratel

    That was a gorgeous tag.

  • Sccrkeepr34

    got him on the arm

  • Captain Clutch

    Nice. That was a quick over turn.

  • YankeesJunkie

    Good job on the challenge, and nice quick reaction by Teix.

  • joeman

    Gardner is getting in his groove around 9 for his last 41

      HAHA The joeman with Gardner hate lives on!!!!!!!!! Too funny.

      • joeman

        can’t let it go

        • Tar

          How are the knees?

          • joeman

            lot better than what it was almost 2 years now…

            • Tar

              Good to hear

              • joeman

                I did finally retired this past Feb 27…..and it feels so good

  • RetroRob

    Umpires still annoyed. Didn’t even look at the replay. He’s out!

  • 28 this year

    The glove of Tex bent hitting Span’s arm. I thought that was pretty clear but I definitely can see why its hard to tell.

    • YankeesJunkie

      Close play, ump probs does not see the glove moving, and that is why instant replay is good.

    • RetroRob

      The ball was there in plenty of time and the swipe was in time too. The question is did the glove touch his arm. Tex seems sure. I’m pretty sure he was out but not 100% from the angles shown, but the umpires turned it over quickly. Maybe they had one other view.

      • Tar

        That’s what i’m thinking, they had a view that we didn’t see. mainly because of how quick they decided.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        One on YES was perfect and easy to see

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Can’t blame the ump for messing the call up at all, Kay and Flaherty saying it’s hard to tell with the replay is something you should blame them for

  • The Other Matt

    That is definitely the quickest decision I’ve seen on a challenge to date, call stand, overturn, or otherwise.

    • YankeesJunkie

      Then right after they ejected the bullpen coach for the nats.

      • The Other Matt

        Seriously ?

        • YankeesJunkie

          No, just sacrcasm.

  • OldYanksFan

    WOW! Hard to find a pick and throw play by a Catcher that was any better than that play by McCann.

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Now watch Teix hit one out to break the tie.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I mean nice try Teix

  • Franchise

    After Beltran AB I’d put Slade in for Defense next inning

  • RetroRob

    All things considered, Flaherty doesn’t look that much different a quarter century on.

    • YankeesJunkie

      He and Paulie have aged pretty way in terms of YES announcers.

      • RetroRob

        Both have kept their hair and stayed in good shape. Helps on both fronts.

        • YankeesJunkie

          If your living is being a TV announcer then you might have the time for the workout part, though I think O’Neil’s metabolism is off the charts.

    • Leftballer

      Irish don’t crack.

      • RetroRob

        They crack out of the womb from incandescent light bulbs.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Chase now is your time.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    wild pitch please, that way Chase will go into RISP mode

  • The Other Matt

    Speaking of Desmond, what kind of contract do you believe he’ll get this off-season ? I say 6/120. Not necessarily that I would give him that kind of deal, but I believe that’s around what he’ll end up getting. Though I could see it being somewhere closer to 100-110.

    • YankeesJunkie

      I can see that, though anythingmore than three with him is scary.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      If he turns it around, sure. RIght now not looking good

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Don’t chase Chase, make them chase it instead.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Pinch hit A-Rod and put Pirela at 2B please

  • Since_77

    McCann is so slow it will take an extra base hit to score him

  • Dalek Jeter

    Lol. I’m not even lying:

    Sterling: “here’s the first pitch to McCann, it’s a strike”
    Waldman: “Something
    Sterling: “second pitch to McCann misses, 2-0”

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Haha, classic

  • Tar

    Well at least we got the pitcher….. ahhh I mean Drew up.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      You mean Beltran. Drew hasn’t been on the mound ever.

    • Sccrkeepr34

      But but….grand slammmmm

      • Tar

        shhh I’m trying for the reverse psyche. dammit you blew it.

        • Sccrkeepr34

          safe to say he was going to blow it anyway. I mean he must have blown someone to still be in this lineup!

          • Tar

            HAHA Cashman would be my guess

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    If McCann was on 2nd, RISPChase would have hit a homerun.

    But a single is fine as well.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Great swing on a 2-0 pitch Drew!

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Let’s go Drew Drew!!!! You can do it!!!

  • HoopDreams

    Drew swings like he’s underwater

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      And of course when he hits it hard it’s foul

      • Asher Dratel

        He Drew’d it!

  • Leftballer

    Early.

    Only one pitch to throw now.

    Edit : and he threw it.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Suzyn is just realizing how good Jordan Zimmermann is.

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Why does it feel like we have 3-4 pitchers in the line-up? Ugh.

    • YankeesJunkie

      Can Eovaldi play second, his ABs last night were pretty good.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    gross

  • Asher Dratel

    Drew is the Britta of the Yankees study group.

    • Dalek Jeter

      No way, I love Britta, hate Stephen Drew.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        True, but Drew almost always Britta’s it.

        • Dalek Jeter

          He does Britta almost every situation.

  • No 2013 again

    Drew failed with 2 on?! I’m shocked

  • WhittakerWalt

    This offense.

  • No 2013 again

    Dude had a 2-0 count and still managed to strike out..great!

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      He seems to work the count well, but then the weak popout or a K.

  • joeman

    yankees middle infield challanged on the offense

  • RetroRob

    This is where Warren usually weakens as a starter. It would be good to call Warren in from the bullpen now.

  • Veteran presents

    How many other regulars are hitting below the Mendoza line in MLB?

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    How many more times can Warren get through this line-up?

    • Veteran presents

      Based on his pitch count, once.

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        Hope you’re right.

    • Dalek Jeter

      He’s at 75 pitches at 5 and a third…but he’s due up 3rd next inning. I think if he gets through this you pinch hit Slade and double switch with Young or Beltran or just simply PH A-Rod.

      • Dalek Jeter

        I take this back, he cruised in the 6th, mid 80s pitch count, slightly worn bullpen? Unless it’s like runner at third and less than 2 outs, let Warren hit and send him out for the 7th.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Warm someone up, go batter by batter.

          • Dalek Jeter

            I think a lot of it will have to do with what Didi and Young do this coming inning.

            • Dalek Jeter

              Welp there’s one quick out…

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              Out, HR?

      • D$

        That’s Jenkin’s bed. Your bed’s over here little bitch.

  • RetroRob

    I think Harper got nailed because of the umpire being pissed at the bench for several innings. Too quick a hook taking Harper out.

    • Tar

      Not if he was pointing to where he thought the pitch was. I still say that was on Williams for provoking the situation.

      • RetroRob

        Yes. It’s certainly within the umpire’s right to toss him, but I believe it was more annoyance at Williams. That said, I also think the umpire needs to show restraint on the Harper toss, but happy he’s out of the game.

  • Ewing33

    Re looking at that replay of Harper being thrown out, I am leaning more toward the ump being out of control. Harper really wasn’t acting all that bad.

    • Dalek Jeter

      I think that was the consensus at the time….I’m stuck on GameDay and delayed radio so I can’t form a real opinion.

      • Ewing33

        Yea, I was more of the opinion Harper was acting childish, but now it seems to me the ump expected to be obeyed like a king or something.

        • Dalek Jeter

          Umps are generally like that.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      He stepped in, then stepped back out after the ump snapped at the bench. Ump was way out of line there, IMO.

      • Ewing33

        Yea, I’m with you now

    • D$

      The last comment I’m going to make on this:

      Harper was wrong. Nobody knows what was said, but I definitely read some cursing at the very beginning. The umpire over reacted. Harper then challenged his authority by stepping in the box with his toe. Whether he was actually challenging his authority, or pointing at the pitch (balls and strikes), was ground for ejection. The ump could have handled it better and could have given him a bit of a leash but didn’t.

      At the end of the day, no one knows exactly what was said, and considering how quick the hook was, I have to agree, that there might have been some things earlier that started it all.

      • Ewing33

        I more or less agree here

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    We shouldn’t be hearing Marvin Hudsons name, period.

  • joeman

    Harper is getting a bad reputation with umps

  • OldYanksFan

    Fucking GREAT pick by Teix.

  • The Other Matt

    Watching the Harper argument over just now, I was wrong. I thought he was mocking Hudson when he tapped his foot in the batter’s box, but on second glance he was showing where he thought the pitch was located.

    • Tar

      Yep and that was why he got tossed.

    • dave_8

      Really? I didn’t see it earlier. But it looked like the ump told him to get in the box. And he said “this box?” then tip-toed into it.

      • Ewing33

        He was either saying that he was in the box before the ump left his box, or he is pointing out where he thought the pitch went. Either way, he definitely wasn’t mocking the ump which is what I thought he was doing originally.

        • dave_8

          I thought the baby steps into the box was mocking the ump.

          • Ewing33

            On second look though he was just pointing something out to the ump, not mocking him … just what I saw

        • Tar

          He was arguing balls and strikes

    • blake

      He def was being cute sticking his toe in the box

      • Tar

        It was a low inside pitch…that was why they were arguing and bitching about it. He used his foot to point and say it “was right there”. He deserved to get tossed.

        • blake

          I think the ump escalated it ….Harper was talking but he was going about his business while he was doing it

          • Tar

            But then he pointed to where ehe thought the pitch was…. Williams instigated it and Harper continued it. He deserved it I don’t care how much of a superstar people think he is.

            • blake

              After the ump stopped the game to run his mouth ….basically as long as the player isn’t stopping the game to look at the ump and is just talking while he’s getting ready to hit then they need to have thick skin and take the high road. I’m sure Williams was involved but the ump didn’t defuse the situation….he escalated it….that’s the problem…..ump show ….Nobldy cares about the ump

              • Tar

                He was getting bitched at by Williams because of the pitch. People should be complaining about the ump because of the bad call… not for throwing out two hot heads.

              • Tar

                He was getting bitched at by Williams because of the pitch. People should be complaining about the ump because of the bad call… not for throwing out two hot heads.

  • Sccrkeepr34

    smooth operator for DiDi’s at bat….that makes me laugh!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Holy shit Carpy is warming up

  • RetroRob

    Carpenter?

    Fire in the hole.

  • The Other Matt

    Close play. Expect a challenge.

  • YankeeFan™

    Finally the YES network will air a minor league game tomorrow, I’m really excited to see Refsnyder and of course Tanaka.

    • The Other Matt

      I am too. I applaud them for taking the initiative to scrap whatever they had scheduled to show the Tanaka rehab start and some of the other prospects (Refsnyder, Flores, Austin, and the bullpen guys). Plus I’m sure it’ll probably get decent ratings.

      • YankeeFan™

        I used to love when they used to show minor league games back in the day. I Pray we get many more on off days.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Is Warren in the on deck circle?

    • Sccrkeepr34

      no Slade is

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Didi you have to be able to beat that shit out quicker

  • blake

    I just saw the Harper deal…..Harper was running his mouth…..the ump was having an ump show….then Harper came back and mockingly stuck his toe in the box ….at that point he was going to toss him.

    I do wish the umpires wound realize that pretty much everyone there is there to see Bryce Harper

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      “I do wish the umpires wound realize that pretty much everyone there is there to see Bryce Harper”

      this. fuck the ump

  • Dalek Jeter

    Pinch hitter or Warren sacrificing?

  • YankeesJunkie

    Too close!

  • RetroRob

    Looks out.

  • Asher Dratel

    That could go either way.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Damnit are we in a challenge delay?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Yes

  • Captain Clutch

    I think he is out

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Didi has to get there fucking quicker, it’s fucking unbelievable that they are challenging this

  • Since_77

    Close play, could go either way. Didi needs a hit

  • ropeadope1

    Inconclusive.

  • Sccrkeepr34

    out!

  • Asher Dratel

    I don’t think that’s clear and conclusive enough to overturn the call.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I’m amazed Didi didn’t beat that out, like really

    • Dalek Jeter

      Didi is nowhere near as fast as you’d think him to be.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        But seriously though that was a long turn

  • Pkyankfan69
  • Refsnyder > Drew

    From the glove side safe, from the first base side out. Glove wasn’t closed, the bounce looked like it allowed the foot to drop

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Wow, how can they even tell?

    • ropeadope1

      Must have flipped a coin.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      I blame Jim Joyce

  • The Other Matt

    I thought he was out on first glance. And after the replay I still think he is out.

  • Sccrkeepr34

    now warren is going to hit…

  • Dalek Jeter

    DO WE HAVE A FINAL SAY YET?!

  • Captain Clutch

    Wow..I think that was too close to overturn.

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    I think that’s a bad call

    • D$

      Leaving Warren in?

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        The tie at first overturned. I thought Warren had some of the best ABs tonight

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    That’s embarrassing that he didn’t get there in time though. He’s not even that slow and that wasn’t a quick throw/catch

    • Sccrkeepr34

      he took a terrible path to the base too..

      • Dalek Jeter

        …why didn’t he just run straight through the bag?

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Low… baseball IQ?

          • dave_8

            Bingo!

    • D$

      Sir Didi Naka….Naka….Nakonna get there in time!

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        I just want him to get some damn hits and when he should have one he fucks it up, god damnit

  • bernbabybern

    Too close to overturn.

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    We’re going to lose this one on a walk-off again, aren’t we?

    • Tomcats4Ever

      No I think they score in this inning.

      • D$

        Top o de order.

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    Terrible overturn. Not conclusive.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Warren making him work!

  • RetroRob

    Warren gave a better AB there than some position players. Not naming names.

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Drive up that pitch count Warren!

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    And if David Carpenter comes in it’s over. He’ll serve up the game winner on a nice platter. I would use someone else.

  • Dalek Jeter

    He put a ball in play too!

  • HoopDreams

    Whatever Michael Taylors walkup song is, its catchy

    • CashmanNinja

      Google says it’s Ocean by Dream Junkies

  • D$

    I need to say my peace:

    I was big time on the Didi train when the trade was made. I am in no way on the “he needs to get off this team” train now, but damn, he’s starting to frustrate me. I’m becoming hopeless and apathetic in this situation. It’ll take a least a full season or more of this for me to reach negative status, but I have officially been removed from positive status, and sit on the zero line.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      dislike, sorry

    • CashmanNinja

      I loved the trade at the time. Loved it. But Didi really does make it hard to cheer for him because he just seems to make some real head scratching plays. Plus his bat has not been very good. At all. He still has time to rebound, but he’s not a 20 year old prospect anymore either. Eventually he’s got to take the next step or he won’t be anything more than a backup SS.

  • The Other Matt

    Damn Headley.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Oh lord Heads

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Clearly an error Flaherty

  • RetroRob

    Error. They’ll probably call it a hit. Home-town cooking.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Haha, if it’s called a hit then the official scorer should be fired immediately

  • Sccrkeepr34

    blooper reel

  • ropeadope1

    E-5 plus vertigo on Headley.

  • The Other Matt

    Forget if it was a tough play or not, but he just made himself look like a foolish Little Leaguer by falling the way he did.

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Headley…c’mon man!

  • blake

    It’s really weird he’s making so many errors….it’s def a mental thing now….and a confidence thing

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      He did the same thing last inning, and got bailed out by Teix on a beautiful scoop

    • Ewing33

      He didn’t exactly look like a spring chicken there. Looked stiff

      • blake

        Arods hips are in his head

  • Captain Clutch

    Damn….watch that lead to a run.

  • Veteran presents

    Wow, Headley looked like a fool there.

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Where did that first pitch miss?

  • Ewing33

    Has Headley thought about talking to Tex and going vegan? Could be time …

  • blake

    It’s the big leagues boys….that’s an error in high school

  • D$

    My fantasy team wants that to be a hit.

  • Sccrkeepr34

    Put Alex in!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    50% chance at a 2-run homerun here

  • Captain Clutch

    Come on ump…

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Headley got paid, what more is there to play for?

    • ropeadope1

      Pride.

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        I wonder if Dan Uggla feels that way.

        • ropeadope1

          Uggla has had a neurological eye issue the past several seasons. He’s better than his stats show.

          • Refsnyder > Drew

            Now I feel like a jerk.

            • ropeadope1

              Why? Nobody on this site knows about it.

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        Pride on that play, how do you spell redemption? H-e-a-d-l-e-y.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      I think you aren’t serious, but there’s no reason not to try your best, why not?

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        Yeah, I’m trolling there but 9 errors are brutal…then he does THAT.

    • Tar

      They get paid more when they win. A WS share is a nice piece of change.

  • HoopDreams

    Thanks Chase for butchering a routine grounder in a tight game

    • ScottinSJ

      We signed him for his glove.

  • Captain Clutch

    Damn errors always lead to something….

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    It’s funny how opposing fans yell Yankees suck in national league stadiums

  • blake

    Warren is out of gas….get him Joe now….

  • Sccrkeepr34

    god damnit —-game over —- ill be glad to eat big helping of crow if it isnt

  • Veteran presents

    Bunt them over, game over.

  • Mustang

    Shoe dropping #2!!!

  • Captain Clutch

    I think you have to get Warren out of there. He has pitched really good and the Headley error wasn’t his fault but I think it’s time to go to the bullpen otherwise he will probably give up the game.

  • Walter Sobchak – Vietnam Vet

    This is usually where Warren runs out of gas. His last few pitches have been pretty bad. Sliders that missed badly

  • CashmanNinja

    Headley!!!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    WOW WOW

  • Dellin Betansaze

    WOW

  • Captain Clutch

    Nice catch by Headley

  • blake

    Dangerous to stick with Warren rigjt here….I know the middle of the pen isn’t exactly inspiring confidence right now…..but Warren up around 100 pitches is a different guy

    • Mustang

      THIS!!!

  • Mustang

    NICE!!!

  • The Other Matt

    Talk about redeeming yourself.

  • Asher Dratel

    So hey what the hell is up with Headley?

  • Ewing33

    Gold glover!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    That’s unbelievable play holy shit

  • Walter Sobchak – Vietnam Vet

    Shades of the Joba belly flop off the mound

  • Sccrkeepr34

    HEADLEY SAY FUCK YOU RAB commentators

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      “Suck my dick”

      • D$

        – Ron Jeremy

    • D$

      RAB:

  • Tar

    Headley sucks…he should have made a double play

  • The Other Matt

    3 run homer.

  • CashmanNinja

    That better be on top 10 best plays on SC tomorrow

  • blake

    Then he makes a ridiculous play….see that one was reaction …he didn’t have to think about it

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Fuck you Beltran, fuck you

  • CashmanNinja

    And wtf Beltran you slow turd!!

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Good grief.

  • Ewing33

    The wall was in his head?

  • HoopDreams

    Why the fuck isn’t Slade in for defense?

  • Sccrkeepr34

    BENCH THAT MOFO

  • ScottinSJ

    Carlos going all out again. What a joke.

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Beltran is awful

  • Tar

    wow that was bad

  • Captain Clutch

    Old man Beltran hurts them again. What a joke. He should never be in the oudfield again.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Defense matters folks

  • YankeesJunkie

    Beltran…

  • Ewing33

    MIght have Bobby Abreu syndrome after his death defying flip last year

    • CashmanNinja

      At least Abreu was able to get on base while playing shitastic defense.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I’m actually laughing out loud right now, that Beltran play was hilarious

  • MP

    Beltran = statue

  • CashmanNinja

    Beltran literally gave up before it hit the ground right in front of him. That’s a fucking no excuse play there. I’m sick of that loser.

    • Sccrkeepr34

      Seriously, why even run that far if you arent going to finish the play

  • SteveNj

    Carlos!

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Slade please.

  • The Other Matt

    Carlos Beltran is an absolute joke in the field. And Girardi is hesitant to run A-Rod out to third once a week (I know for health reasons, but still), yet he has Beltran play right five times a week.

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    Frankenstein sure wanted that one didn’t he? Nice effort. Teixera was rolling his eyes.

  • Captain Clutch

    Beltran looks like he is 65 years old out there. His offense isn’t good enough to put up with that kind of crap defense.

    • D$

      I think having him in the lineup is very offensive.

      See what I did there? I made a pun!

  • CashmanNinja

    Beltran was running like he saw a big pile of dog shit and was like “Nah, these are new cleats.”

  • blake

    Good lord beltran…..put the freaking hover round in high

    • CashmanNinja

      Where’s Mr. Mobility when you need him?

  • bernbabybern

    That was pathetic.

  • insidethescoreboard

    Beltran wasn’t even running hard. That was a huge opportunity for an out. WTFU

  • blake

    Pitiful

  • HoopDreams

    He literally, stopped and just looked at the ball drop

  • dave_8

    He reared up like there was one of those invisible dog fences. He needs a zap collar to make him run harder.

  • ScottinSJ

    That’s a routine foul pop for any other RF’er.

  • blake

    Take the damn governer off Beltrans hover round

  • Walter Sobchak – Vietnam Vet

    He ran fine after it, then pulled up at the lest second for no reason at all and let it drop at his feet

  • Pkyankfan69

    Buttron needs to be sent to the glue factory

  • Leftballer

    His name is … DAN UGGLA!!

  • Tar

    No matter what happens here…Warren pitched a helluva game tonight.

    • The Other Matt

      But he’s going to feel like crap if the men left on base score and he ends up with 4-5 ER on his line for the night.

      • Tar

        Well the Headley play was an error so not sure if any runs would be earned. But yeah he won’t feel good if they score.

        • The Other Matt

          True. Totally forgot about that, you’re absolutely right.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    I hope Beltran has been throwing games and gets caught soon

  • blake

    You cant walk uggla and survive

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Get Beltran out of the fucking game

  • Captain Clutch

    The defense is making this really hard on Warren. Just disgusting.

  • Tar

    We need the Dellin!!!!

  • Sccrkeepr34

    why does Warren’s defense hate him so much

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Gonna need 5 outs this inning lol

  • MP

    Poor Warren. Should’ve had 2 extra outs this inning.

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Mother-clucker!

  • blake

    I hope this isn’t gonna be another standard Yankees score 2 runs in the first then fall asleep for 8 innings show tonight

    • Captain Clutch

      It sure looks like it.

    • Hankflorida

      That’s the plot for their last few losses as its history repeating itself or is it history repeating the entire last year.

  • HoopDreams

    Its a shame we don’t have a solid of on the bench, oh wait

  • D$

    Double switch. Pull Beltran. Let’s see SLADEEEEEEE!

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    Warren did everything he could there. Slade should have been in for defense and now this bullpen is going to give it away like it always does. And the offense scored in the 1st then did nothing the rest of the game likt it always does.

  • Captain Clutch

    Nats will definitely make them pay for this. If we see Beltran in the field again this season Girardi should be smacked.

  • MustacheMasher

    So are people still gonna blame Joe for not pulling Warren earlier?

    • D$

      Last week, I got “Joe, you shoulda pulled him earlier” tattooed across my chest.

      • MustacheMasher

        Pretty much the motto of the season right? Should have pulled the starters earlier but also let them pitch longer… And pull Beltran after the first inning, so he can’t fuck up in the field

        • D$

          I also got a tramp stamp that says “Fuck you, Stephen Drew”

  • blake

    I know he’s old but that was a seriously pitiful effort by Beltran…..they should have 3 outs right now

    • Captain Clutch

      That was disgusting. Once you are there you have to catch the ball. Being hurt is one thing but it seems like he doesn’t give as much effort as he should and Girardi can’t let that continue to happen.

    • CharlieSheen

      Beltran deserves to be benched for that pathetic effort. I rather he dive and get banged up and DL’d. He has got to go. He is useless.

      • blake

        I actually agree

  • ScottinSJ

    Warren pitched well and was undermined big-time this inning, but you cannot walk Dan Uggla. Does Headley lead all 3B-men in errors?

    • YankeesJunkie

      Uggla has had two real un Uggla like ABs this series.

    • D$

      Going into today, Machado had 9, Headley had 8. So…tied at least.

  • Dellin Betansaze

    Sick they Just solved my TV for tomorrow

  • Sccrkeepr34

    now the umpire is squeezing us

  • Dellin Betansaze

    Game Over

  • YankeesJunkie

    Fuck…

  • Captain Clutch

    You just knew that it was going to come back to hurt them. It always does.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Fuck you Beltran

  • Captain Clutch

    The yanks bullpen is absolutely terrible besides the big two.

  • ScottinSJ

    Well, the Rangers are up 2 – 1 over the Lightning.

    • Leftballer

      Hockey lol.

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Damn.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Run still score if it gets through anyway

  • Y’s Guy

    So now span is 3/3 vs. Wilson.

  • Robert Lucarelli

    Inning might be over if anybody but beltran is in right

    Warren pitched well again

  • Tar

    Why did it look like Didid was holding the runner close to 2nd base? I mean WTF?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      It wouldn’t have made a difference even if he got it

      • Tar

        Change your name!!!! I can’t take anything you write about him serious!!!

        j/k

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          seriously though, it wouldnt

  • Leftballer

    Like porky pig used to say

  • Godzilla’s Arm

    What a frustrating game to “watch” through Gameday and RAB comments.

  • Leftballer

    High A Tampa is our only hope left for a organizational win today.

  • Y’s Guy

    sorry, I just don’t conceed a one run game with 2 innings to go. Still winnable (at this point at least)

  • Literally Figurative

    Beltran, Headley, Drew, McCann….the Brian Cashman All-Stars!

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Beltran MVP

      • Literally Figurative

        He should be on the bench after that effort. Horrible

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Not even a joke, if he can’t catch that he should just be DFA’d, fuck him

  • dave_8

    Des did us a favor

  • Tar

    And why isn’t Dellin in this game…oh because the pitcher is due up next inning isn’t he….crap.

    • blake

      He threw 2 last night as well

    • Leftballer

      Pitcher is due up 9th.

      • Tar

        That’s right Warren batted….

  • blake

    Out 4

  • Godzilla’s Arm

    If Wilson can hold the score @ 3, this is still a winnable game.

    • Leftballer

      Not with this line up on the road.

      • D$

        Good thing they’re on the field!

      • Godzilla’s Arm

        You never know, they just need to get lucky.

  • ScottinSJ

    Wilson really struggles to throw strikes.

    • Since_77

      That’s why the Pirates gave him up for a back up catcher.

  • Jim Piasecki

    Bad teams find ways to lose

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      lol fuck off

    • Mandy Stankiewicz

      Trolls gonna troll

      • Jim Piasecki

        Trolls. Very original

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          stfu

  • Captain Clutch

    Yanks really need another good righty reliever. They won’t go anywhere this year if they only have Betances and Wilson.

    • Veteran presents

      We really need a lot of things.

    • Literally Figurative

      But noone is allowed to enter the circle of trust until Coldplay comes back.
      Shreve won’t get much of a chance, unfortunately.

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        Warren will go to the pen when Tanaka comes back.

    • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

      If it’s not Warren soon we will be in trouble.

    • I am Brett Godner

      Like a righty with filthy stuff that gets Ks and lots of ground balls?

  • Hankflorida

    Eovaldi and Warren stayed too long at the ball.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Warren pitched fine, error by headley and beltran sucks

  • blake

    I can deal with physical errors….that beltran play pisses me off.

    • dave_8

      He retired from defense without telling anyone. Too taxing.

    • Tar

      He pulled up at the very end and I have no idea why. Actually I don’t think I want to know why.

      • dave_8

        It was like the start of the track threw him off or something. Like it was the edge of a cliff.

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        He would have had to dive and that was out of the question.

  • Y’s Guy

    Get that one back this inning!

  • The Other Matt

    Very fortunate to get out of that inning only giving up one run.

    • Tar

      Yep.

  • D$

    So…does any body actually know how a double switch works?

    • D$

      Bueller?

    • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

      It’s strategery.

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Meanwhile, the Yankees have had three base-runners since the first inning.

    • blake

      It’s bed time after 7:30

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    I miss it when we were good.

  • YankeesJunkie

    What does Beltran need to hit to be a replacement level player due to his defense I feel like it is 120.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Anybody know?

      • YankeesJunkie

        I am sure it can be mathed out btu damn it makes me sick. Not like Beltran is going to hit 30 homers with .300/.400/.600.

  • Mandy Stankiewicz

    Slade get an AB yet?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Nope

  • HoopDreams

    The Beltran signing is just nauseating

    • Literally Figurative

      BUT TEH POSTSEASON CLUTHNESS!!!!

  • Captain Clutch

    Good now pull Beltran from the game for lack of effort and hustle. I really wonder if he even cares about winning anymore because it doesn’t look like he does.

  • ScottinSJ

    Headley on pace for 36 errors. Beltran doesn’t make errors because he never gets close enough to the ball.

    • Literally Figurative

      Good strategy if you ask me! LOL

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    I’m sure Carlos and Chase will make up for it with the bats. After this loss we’ll be 2-8 on the road trip. 1st place is gone. Here come the Sox one game behind us for 2nd.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      2-7

      • Literally Figurative

        Eddard says 2-8, it’s 2-8!

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          I always forget this rule

  • blake

    Yanks had to get 5 outs that inning….most teams will score of you give them extra outs

  • NYCORNERSTONE

    Beltranny strike again

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    thank fucking god Pineda on friday

    • Jim Piasecki

      That didnt help the last time. We have only won 2 games in more than a week both CC starts

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Please never reply to my comments again

        • Jim Piasecki

          Um okay your holiness

          • Some Asshole

            He’s holy in all the right places.

  • CashmanNinja

    I think this is an accurate representation of Beltran right now…

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    A-Rod better pinch hit for Beltran and Slade better be out in RF next inning if Gardy gets on

  • HoopDreams

    Oh man, Capuano pitches Sunday. I can’t wait….

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    What the fuck Gardner?

    • dave_8

      He went to the Ian Desmond school of hacking

  • ScottinSJ

    I was rather harsh towards Beltran earlier this afternoon. I’m not sorry.

    • HoopDreams

      Put him to pasture Scott

  • D$

    That was a very unGardner swing.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Beltran either hits a homer or i’ll continue to hate on him

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Oh wishful thinking

      • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

        Embrace the hate.

  • Captain Clutch

    So basically the offense goes to sleep after the 2nd inning of every game. Great..

    • D$

      Earlier:

      Someone: “When do we score again?”
      Me: “Tomorrow. The first inning is over”

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Thanks, this is on you.

        • D$

          When we win, do I get credit for the reverse psychology?

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            Yes, of course.

            • D$

              This is a lot of weight on my shoulders. I feel like Cashman. Except that I’m taller than Jose Altuve.

  • Mandy Stankiewicz

    Bomb. Right here.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      the ol’ unintentional intentional walk

      • Mandy Stankiewicz

        Yup :/

  • YankeesJunkie

    Come on RH Teix!

  • sevrox

    Slade better do something quick-like.

  • dave_8

    I smell a comeback. Or is that the load Beltran had in his pants when he ran after that foul ball?

  • HoopDreams

    Tex is gonna see tons of walks until they find someone that can hit behind him

    • YankeesJunkie

      Sabathia?

      • ropeadope1

        Is CC gluten free?

  • YankeesJunkie

    I will take another bunt single.

  • Since_77

    They just do not pitch to Teixeira anymore. Yanks need to find a # 5 hitter

    • Literally Figurative

      Slade Runner to the rescue!!!!!

  • ScottinSJ

    5 thru 9 in the order are 2 for 15.

  • Captain Clutch

    They keep pitching carefully/around Tex.

  • blake

    If I were Cashman I’d be calling San Diego about Justin Upton right now

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      I want him bad

  • Literally Figurative

    Cano, Grandy, Swish>>>>>>>>>>Ellsbury, Mccann, Beltran.
    And that’s taking into account that swisher has no knees.

      WHAT LEADS? YOU STUPID?

        DAMMIT, CLOSAS ARE FOR CLOSIN’ AND SETUPS ARE FOR SETUPPIN’!!

  • Mandy Stankiewicz

    Slade baby!

  • Asher Dratel

    SLADE!

  • MP

    Lineup still the biggest issue with this team. Particularly when no DH, or Teix gets a day off, or Ellsbury gets injured…it’s like 3 above-average hitters alongside 3 below-average hitters and 3 black holes. Losing 3-2 isn’t on the defense or the pitching.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    OMG SLADE

  • Captain Clutch

    Hey Slade

  • James

    SLAAAADE

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Oliver Queen is sooo jealous right now

  • Alex Reddardriguez

    LOL! Now he brings in Slade and takes out his best player.

    • Since_77

      That’s the way the play in the NL. Awful!

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        He’s not coming to back again this game probably anyway

  • https://www.facebook.com/daniel.wasserman.35 nsalem

    Please dont do a Melky Mesa

  • The Other Matt

    Ace of Slade.

    • D$

      That’s the way I like it baby, I don’t want to live foreverrrrrrrrrr

  • James

    That #55 doesnt fit Slade lol

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      wait, does he actually have 55?

      • Mandy Stankiewicz

        Yes

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          wtf why?

          • The Other Matt

            Because it’s actually one of the halfway normal/decent numbers left on the Yankees.

      • D$

        Didn’t Martin wear 55?

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Did he?

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    PLEASE WALK MCCANN! RISPLEY ON DECK!

  • HoopDreams

    Slade looks giddy as hell lol

  • dave_8

    Does he have Matsui’s number?

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    fuck you McCann

    Fuck you Jim Joyce.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    RISPLEY

  • Dellin Betansaze

    Headley can really change my feelings for him with a nice 3 run homer right now

  • Leftballer

    Now is when you bring in Alex.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Nah, RISPLEY

  • Y’s Guy

    nice little double in the corner here and lets steal this one!

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      It’d be 3-3.

  • MP

    Please Chase. This team = so in need of a feel-good win.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      Barely scraped the wood on it, popped it out too quick. Looked painful.

  • Chien Ming The Merciless

    If that was a cheeseburger instead of a baseball I’m sure Beltran catches that….

  • Captain Clutch

    Damn Headley…

  • The Other Matt

    Now would be a good time for one of those timely, clutch Headley hits with runners in scoring position.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    ugh

  • MP

    No offense.

    • dave_8

      None taken.

  • ScottinSJ

    Headley gets way too much love on here.

      You’ll get destroyed, careful. He’s an ok player but yeah

  • MP

    Every other team in the division losing. Only saving grace right now is that the AL East is awful.

    • Alex Reddardriguez

      We finally get to go back home Friday and face a bad team. Pineda is pitching. They need to beat up on Texas at home to make up for this awful road trip.

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Put ARod in for Young, then Slade at CF, ARod at 1st?

  • Tomcats4Ever

    All they did was clear the lineup so the bottom of the order comes up in the 9th.

  • Beauee

    So I was out for a while…I see I missed nothing??? Headley error by the sounds of it.

    • Sccrkeepr34

      yeah that was bad, but what Beltran did was worse.

      • Beauee

        Missed a ball?

        • HoopDreams

          He literally stopped in foul ground and the ball dropped in front of him

          • Beauee

            Gonna be that guy: Heathcott would have had it!

            • Sir Didi Nakamura

              Any other player in baseball

              • Literally Figurative

                Swisher woulda had that!

              • Beauee

                Jesus, even if he starts hitting, it’s not gonna matter because his defense is so damn poor.

              • Sccrkeepr34

                my grandma would have had that

            • HoopDreams

              Of course he would’ve. He’s not a zillion years old

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          It was dreadful

        • Sccrkeepr34

          what looked to be a routine foul out, Beltran ran/lolligagged and then stopped short while the ball bounced in front of his glove

          • Beauee

            Man he is the worst.

        • dave_8

          Missed implies that he tried to catch it. He didn’t

        • YankeesJunkie

          That would have been better.

        • Tar

          He was trying to avoid the Ball girl ……so he had to stop short. he’s a freaking humanitarian!

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            And she was a whole 30 feet away too! Thinking ahead Carlos, thinking ahead!

  • James

    Im so pumped for Heathcott lol

  • D$

    Call me Esmil.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      He can go away anytime now and I’ll be just fine with it.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        He’s a longman, really not a big deal

        • D$

          Only 6’3″. Not very long relative to most pitchers.

          • Sir Didi Nakamura

            I wasn’t talking about height

            • D$

              Oh. Does he give gift baskets like Jeter?

              • Refsnyder > Drew

                With complementary prophylactics.

              • Sir Didi Nakamura

                He doesn’t need to. He’s the gift basket.

        • Refsnyder > Drew

          I don’t see the luster others do, I for one prefer Drew.

          • Some Asshole

            Drew is my hero. The man can pitch, he can outfield, he can also goalie.

  • YankeesJunkie

    That was a good play.

    • Mandy Stankiewicz

      Great play

  • ScottinSJ

    Yanks are very fortunate to be in the AL Least. All other foes are losing right now.

    • Beauee

      Wow. The AL East is really bad this year.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      Just wait till Joe Kelly gets right, the Sox’ll run away with it! /espn’d

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Garrett Jones sighting!!

  • D$

    Nice play Headley. For every bad play he has, he has an equally good one. Quite confusing.

  • Captain Clutch

    It seems like the yankees ship is slowly sinking. First it was Tanaka then
    the offense and bullpen. They only have a couple of guys in the lineup who hit
    and they can’t afford to have games where they play bad defense. It just kills
    them.

    • Jim Piasecki

      Very similar to last year. Team got off okay then injuries. Just seems this year the team has parts that just dont quite fit.

  • insidethescoreboard

    Beltran is a sunk cost. The money is gone, flushed. So now they have a choice between kissing the money goodbye AND clogging the roster with a crap player for months/years, or kissing the money goodbye, moving on and freeing up a starting spot. Granted the org is surely not at the point just yet, but if THIS keeps up, will it be at that point in a month, two months? If not, why not? I think by late June they’ll cut him loose if this keeps up. There’s no point in even carrying him on the bench if he goes on at this level of ineptitude. If he’s done, he’s done.

  • ScottinSJ

    And . . . the Rangers just coughed up the rest of their 2 – 0 lead. Dammit.

    • NH Yankee fan

      stupid penalty by Brassard.. They are their worst enemies.

      It’s always Mike isn’t it?

      • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

        Mike = Brian Cashman = Cashman failed.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Cashman calls Mike for final decisions. Mike failed.

        • ScottinSJ

          Stop it right now. No Cashman would mean no Beltran, Drew, Didi, McCann and Headley.

    • Beauee

      It all makes sense now. We need a reverse jinx in the worst way.

      • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

        This team is really bad, you guys.

        • CashmanNinja

          It’ll only work if Mike says it.

      It’s Joe’s way of waving the white flag here.

    Esmil always makes me nervous when he is in the game. I guess this game is over so it doesn’t matter. He is a AAA pitcher.

  • NH Yankee fan

    • ScottinSJ

      Embarrassing. Simply embarrassing.

  • Jim Piasecki

    Guess could be worse. METS getting blown out and have gave away their big division lead. Their problem is that Washington will pull away. The AL East is looking like 85 or 86 wins might win it

    • Some Asshole

      Mets were not that good. Nationals not that bad.

          I trust the Nats announcer on this one, and I do think it was about the box.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    A-Rod pinch hitting for Didi I guess

  • Captain Clutch

        Ugh, you were right.

        This.

  • Basil

    Without ARod in the lineup, they’re pretty much last year’s team. Low batting averages, little production from everyone below Gardner in the lineup, with the exception of Tex. Beltran’s a bum and should be punished somehow. He can’t hit and, in some ways worse, he can’t field any more.

    • Y’s Guy

      Beltran .292 2HR 7 RBI the past 2 weeks, has a hit tonight.

      On deck

  • CashmanNinja

    What good is having A-Rod come up now if the game ends and you can’t even use him?

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Hahaha they’re letting Didi hit.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    good god Girardi is fucking retarted

  • Cuso

    Jays lose, Rays lose, O’s lose

    • CashmanNinja

      Yankees lose*

      • Cuso

        Sox lost too

      • Cuso

        Sox lost too

  • Beauee

    SERIOUS JOE???? SERIOUSLY???????????????

  • Asher Dratel

    Ahahahaha are you kidding me right now?

  • Tar

    Does Joe know how many outs there are?

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    WHERE THE F IS AROD?

    • Mandy Stankiewicz

      Batting

      • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

        Still a bad move though.

        • Mandy Stankiewicz

          Totally

  • HoopDreams

    Jones is completely worthless, he can’t hit or field. Barely plays… For 5 million

    • ScottinSJ

      Stop your incessant whining. ;)

  • Literally Figurative

    DIDI!

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    still a stupid as fuckign fuck decision

    • Mandy Stankiewicz

      100%

  • YankeesJunkie

    Delicious crow Didi, may I have some more.

  • Beauee

    Didi got a hit. But that was dumb as fucking hell.

  • 28 this year

    Wow, Joe G got bailed out. Bad process, good results I guess.

  • CashmanNinja

    A-Rod better smoke a 2 run HR right now. He better or else.

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Why is Alex still on the bench? This is fucking bullshit.

  • Literally Figurative

    The Closer….versus THE CENTAUR!!!

  • Tar

    Like I said Joe is a genius…..

  • MP

    Doesn’t make Joe’s move any better. Love the guy but that’s dumb as hell.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Even if he smokes a 2run HR it was a dumb decision, but dumb decision woud be okay then

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    Unless Joe can see into the future, that was still a bad move.

    • Y’s Guy

      who were you going to bat for the pitcher?

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        Pirela

      • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

        Are we even sure we get to the pitcher?

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    We better get fucking Binder’d right now or fuck you Girardi

  • D$

    Holy shit.

  • The Other Matt

    All or Nothing.

  • dave_8

    Robbie Thomson put those two binder pages out of order

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    fucking hanger thooo

  • MP

    That was your pitch Alex.

    • MP

      That was not.

      • Y’s Guy

        no chance on that pitch.

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    breaking ball coming here

  • Sccrkeepr34

    thankfully the rangers suck and being an A’s season ticket holder, i can honestly tell you they suck too

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    steal 2nd for luls didi

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    fuck fuck

  • Mandy Stankiewicz

    Replay that pitch

  • Y’s Guy

    That was a poor at-bat.

  • Asher Dratel
    • Dalek Jeter

      How I feel about baseball lately. At least my The Show team is…doing exactly the same. Like the same exact record. It’s actually a game better because I won the first game against the Nationals.

  • Dalek Jeter

    wow. That was…a bit up and inside.

  • CashmanNinja

    How….is that a strike???

  • Sccrkeepr34

    BULLSHIT, that was a ball

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    that’s a ball

  • 28 this year

    What a terrible call

  • Tar

    I hate Baseball

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    That’s a fucking ball this up a fucking piece of shit

  • I am Brett Godner

    Is ARod just a flat out 100% guess hitter at this point?

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      That was a ball

      • Literally Figurative

        I guess it was…..

    • CashmanNinja

      Did you see the pitch? It was at his bicep and they called it a strike.

      • I am Brett Godner

        That ONE pitch yeah, but watch his ABs. I’m not convinced that the swings he takes have anything to do with the actual pitch thrown.

    • NYCORNERSTONE

      Should of guessed first pitch right in his wheelhouse

      • I am Brett Godner

        That’s kind of what I’m getting at. He sure watches a lot of hittable pitches and swings at some duds. If he guesses right BLAMO, but…

    • https://www.facebook.com/daniel.wasserman.35 nsalem

      His OPS is over .900 this year. Do you have a problem with that?

      • I am Brett Godner

        Settle down guys. It’s a fucking question that occurred to me. I’m not threatening to burn your Diana Ross album or anything. ARod has stated in the past that he does guess a lot and with his age and watching his abs I’m starting to think he’s guessing most of the time now.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Yeah he probably is

        • https://www.facebook.com/daniel.wasserman.35 nsalem

          I’m very settled down, don’t have any Diana Ross albums and A-Rod has been a notorious guess hitter throughout his career. It’s nothing new with him as it is with almost all hitters.

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Not a strike.

  • Mandy Stankiewicz

    Omg that…that wasn’t close.

  • Literally Figurative

    WTF was that? And people STILL don’t want a computerized strikezone?

    • Asher Dratel

      Pitch FX has it as a strike, so…

      • Refsnyder > Drew

        That was not in the zone, I assure you of that.

  • 28 this year

    That was a terrible pitch. Off the plate, not framed, not near the target. WTF

  • disqus_8E66WIUyso

    I hate cashman for giving us this team.

  • CashmanNinja

    That wasn’t even close to being a strike. None whatsoever. It was HIGH and it was INSIDE…like…really inside. Like several inches inside. And did I mention it was also high? This ump really was a joke tonight.

    • Sccrkeepr34

      make up call for throwing Harper out.

  • D$

    That could not have been further from a swing.

  • The Other Matt

    I think it might be a good time to cue up the gif of Girardi throwing in the towel vs. the Rangers a couple seasons ago.

  • D$

    The bat didn’t break the inside plane. Let alone the front. Fuck.

    • D$

      Holy shit. I didn’t even occur to me that that was a called strike. I thought he was calling it a swing.

      Holy shit.

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    Way to end the game. This ump should be terminated immediately after his “performance”. Way to take the bat out of the two best hitters hands tonight.

  • Johnny Mac

    So Mike was saying that Headly had been good this yr at defense. His error cost the Yanks the game.

    • Sccrkeepr34

      Beltran not catching the ball cost us the game.

  • MP

    This team’s biggest problem by far isn’t the defense or the depth of the ‘pen or anything like that. The offense is full of black holes and simply won’t produce enough runs.

  • dave_8

    I think the ump was squaring the Harper ejection with that one.

  • YankeesJunkie

    Beltran needs to get an MRI on both legs, there surely will be enough to put him on the DL.

  • argenys

    So I see nobody is jumping off of a bridge. Y’all were on suicide watch on 3-6, they’re 1-7 now.

    • CashmanNinja

      We’re dead inside.

      • argenys

        It’s definitely no fun right now

    • dave_8

      We’re zombies now.

    • Jim Piasecki

      You get called troll for that. This team is in big big trouble. They are who we thought they were a seriously flawed team. In any other division they are a 4th place team

      • I am Brett Godner

        Get a dick BGT.

      • argenys

        We have been getting lucky that in our worst stretch so far this year, the division hasn’t done very much.

    • Refsnyder > Drew

      No suicide watch tonight, just homicide watch after the putrid strike zone.

  • ScottinSJ

    In 2013, we started the season off strong too. This line-up really isn’t much better than that one with Ellsbury out.

  • disqus_8E66WIUyso

    I hate cashman

  • Refsnyder > Drew

    The umpire had the biggest impact on this game. I blame that fucker.

    • Pete22

      Yeah, if he had not booted Harper he would have made 3 errors and given us the game

  • D$

    Can we invest in some umpires this offseason? Maybe thats the better route than offense.

  • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

    There ain’t even one thing to cheer for in this team at the moment.

    • D$

      SLADE!

      • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

        He hardly played though. Hope he gets more burn the next few days.

    • Jim Piasecki

      Agreed. They arent very good at anything. Right now they just find ways to lose.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        stfu

    • WhittakerWalt

      Big Mike.

  • Tar

    Williams and Harper both deserved to get tossed.

    But why they got pissed in the first place was because of crappy balls and strike calls. That pitch to Harper was low and inside. That pitch to Alex was high and inside i mean that’s just terrible….I hate watching games that are ruined like that.

  • Y’s Guy

    Good Ole Ross Ohlendorf is in against the RS now.

  • NH Yankee fan

    this team is doomed with this offense. Good pitching won’t matter!

  • D$

    I will not root for this team until we win again. Then I will return to rooting for them.

    Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

  • Literally Figurative

    Beltran, Mccann, Drew, Jones, Carpenter. Send these dudes somewhere. Please Cash.

    • frogbogg

      I think he is sending them to the Bronx this weekend.

    • cashmoney

      Cashman signed or traded for those dudes …an alternate thought could be sending cashman somewhere.. in reality he may be gone if nyy does not make the playoff this year though I think Hal is bluffing. we got 3/4 season to go.

    • I am Brett Godner

      McCann has value …and I thinks thats all I have to say about that cause Im a nice guy.

  • dave_8

    so, does a beat reporter ask Joe “What happened with Beltran on that…”

    • Y’s Guy

      absolutely

      • dave_8

        How well will Joe be able to hide his irritation?

        • Y’s Guy

          Joe’s a pro at that. NP.

        • I am Brett Godner

          Quite well. Say what you want about Binder Joe ( I do), but the guy can pump out his cliches stoned faced with the best of them.

          • dave_8

            I think you’re confusing him with Torre. Girardi is better than he used to be — but his feelings are still on his sleeve. Watch the vein in his forehead as his head starts wagging. More the affect than the words.

            • I am Brett Godner

              Torre was the master no doubt. Torre was so good at it that people didn’t even that mad at him for spinning his BS.

          • http://yankeecanada.com/ Bob(bobby) M.

            I get annoyed because the reporters are afraid to ask the hard questions and then not just accept a spin for an answer. They don’t seem to want to press Joe and really get to the heart of the issue. Afraid of upsetting him? You think as reporters they wouldn’t care but they seem to not want to push the envelope very much. Someone have an answer? is there some kind of etiquette with reporters and managers, some line they aren’t allowed to cross in an interview?

  • ScottinSJ

    Bring up Refsnyder and plug him and Heathcott into the lineup nearly every day. I mean, come on, can it really get much worse than what’s out there?? Give it a fucking whirl for a few weeks.

    • Pete22

      Prospect fever. Look where it got the Red Sox.

      • ScottinSJ

        Yeah, you’re right, we wouldn’t want to rob Drew of any well-earned ABs.

        • Literally Figurative

          Or Beltran of showing off his sparkling defense and hustle….

      • WhittakerWalt

        Don’t you know the answer is always PLAY THE KIDS?

  • Pete22

    Slumps and streaks, the essence of baseball. Some never get that.

    • I am Brett Godner

      Teams with holes tend to be especially streaky and that seems to be what we have here. I guess the good news there is that if they can ride the bad division into the post season and then get streaky hot they might win it.

      Silver linings baby silver linings.

    • http://yankeecanada.com/ Bob(bobby) M.

      yeh, but some teams have more slumps and longer slumps than others

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Important question:

    How well does Heathcott have to hit to be better than Beltran because of his defense? Drewdoza Line?

  • joeman

    the ball always finds the bad fielders

    • ScottinSJ

      But, but Headley’s main value is his glove.

      • joeman

        if that is true they are in trouble

    • Y’s Guy

      lots of people want to see one or two more of them out there.

    • I am Brett Godner

      Thats because you don’t notice when it finds the good ones.

      • joeman

        better get on the stick your 8 for your last 37 and your BA has dropped 40 pts in the last 2.5 weeks

        • I am Brett Godner

          Im pretty streaky. What can you do.

  • RetroRob

    Sigh.

    This losing streak will soon turn just as the winning streak did.

    • http://yankeecanada.com/ Bob(bobby) M.

      optimistic. I hope so but I’m not sure given our lineup and Ells being out for a couple of weeks at least. And it will depend on how Tanaka is coming back and when Nova returns and a lot of variables. We’re more successful with the teams in the AL East which we have played more often up to this point. Outside our division not so good.

  • MP

    Here are some mood-enhancing things from Fangraphs’s CoolStandings:
    1) Yanks are in 1st place
    2) Yanks have greatest probability of winning the AL East
    3) Yanks have greatest probability of any AL team of winning the WS.

    • Sir Didi Nakamura

      Royals and Tigers most certainly have higher odds

      • MP

        Not according to their simulator.

        • Sir Didi Nakamura

          Really? Odd

        • I am Brett Godner

          I think being in the more competitive league costs KC and Detroit points toward winning the WS since they basically just simulator blast scenarios. The strange one is that Detroit has slightly better (certainly not significant) odds of making the WS but slightly worse odds of winning it. Yeaaaaa computer modeling.

    • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

      In other words: The AL East really sucks nowadays. Haha.

      • WhittakerWalt

        As long as we suck the least I’m happy.

    • cashmoney

      I have no idea what cool standing is…but 3 reads a bit delusional. Think I’m just gonna blaze one instead…

      • MP
        • NYYFanFromThePhilippines

          I’m trying to figure out how that happened. Maybe they factor in who they could possibly face in the ALDS and ALCS? I don’t know, my head hurts.

          • I am Brett Godner

            They basically just simulate the rest of the season a few million times so yeah the rest of the teams in that particular run matter. Its fun but honestly if you watch over the course of a season, not very informative.

    • http://yankeecanada.com/ Bob(bobby) M.

      man that’s way more positive than I am at this point. Hope they’re right?

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    Wow lucky on that RBI double, span terrible

  • MP

    Last year’s team was plagued, in part, by the fact that when it was in a similar situation, it couldn’t dip into the farm system for any sort of help. This year’s team may see its success lay in whether or not management is willing to try guys like Heathcott, Refsnyder, and Lindgren, and whether or not they actually succeed in such an opportunity. Good thing is, the AL East is awful, so there’s a bit of wiggle room. All in all, if we were asked on April 1 how we would like being in 1st place on May 20, we all would’ve signed up.

    • http://yankeecanada.com/ Bob(bobby) M.

      only in first place because Tampa Bay lost too

  • RetroRob

    That last strike on A-Rod was quite bad. The umpire did not have a good night.

    • Pete22

      Didn’t look bad on gameday. Borderline. Arod chasing the previous pitch which was worse expanded the zone. Usually the umps shrink the zone on-0-2 but it was dinner time, and he knows he is going to get slammed by his supervisor for that Harper ejection so probably wanted time to get well lubricated

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        gameday is a bad way to judge, awful call

        • I am Brett Godner

          The pitch FX below makes it look better than it seemed live, but either way that is not the way to end a game with an 0-2 count.

  • ScottinSJ

    RANGERS TIE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • joeman

    agree the home plate ump wasn’t on his game tonight

    • http://yankeecanada.com/ Bob(bobby) M.

      Maybe it’s because we’re losing lately but we’ve been on the home plate umps case for the last few games. Is it the umps or are we just getting more frustrated? I guess if we were winning the ump calls at the plate wouldn’t be an issue

  • Sir Didi Nakamura

    guess I’ll watch the rangers

  • Pete22

    Well, the rest of the AL East has lost or is losing. We might be in the worst division in baseball, or at least the AL

  • Captain Clutch

    According to Girardi Beltran gave it all he had on that play. If that is all he has you can’t play him in the outfield anymore. They have a young kid in Slade…let him play.

    • I am Brett Godner

      Do you think Girardi recognizes the double edge to statements like that? I like to think he does. It can’t be anymore fun having to pump out the spin and cliches than it is listening to them.

  • Tar

    wow the rangers tie it again

    • I am Brett Godner

      The rangers beat Boston 2-1. It was never tied. You crazy.

      • Tar

        Their closer blew it. They are now in overtime innings.

      • Sir Didi Nakamura

        ????????????????????????
