Game 128: Yankees at Tigers

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Blogroll, Misc on Aug 24, 2007 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here is the lineup:

YANKEES
Johnny Damon DH
Melky Cabrera CF
Derek Jeter SS
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Jorge Posada C
Hideki Matsui LF
Robinson Cano 2B
Andy Phillips 1B
Shelley Duncan RF
Roger Clemens RHP (5-5, 3.92)

Pregame chatter: Yanks are facing LHP Andrew Miller (5-4, 4.42). … Ron Villone is not on the lineup card, so presumably he has been DFA’d. … Cano lost a hit when the official scorer in Anaheim reviewed Wednesday’s game and determined that when he reached in the fourth inning it should have been an error on John Lackey. Frankly, it’s the right call. But it’s lame to change it a day later. … A-Rod has 17 steals, two more than he has last season.

UPDATE, 5:55 p.m.: Turns out Villone went on the disabled list with a “mild lower back strain.” In a stunning coincidence, that’s an injury that doesn’t necessarily show up on x-rays or MRIs.

UPDATE, 6:14 p.m.: Tarp on the field. Based on what the grounds crew guys were saying, there’s a storm coming. I would doubt we’re starting on time. I’ll keep you posted.

UPDATE, 6:19 p.m.: What do John McDonald, Curtis Thigpen, Trot Nixon, Josh Barfield, Grady Sizemore, Kenny Lofton, Miguel Tejada, Aubrey Huff, Pudge Rodriguez, Magglio Ordonez, Carlos Guillen, Jeff Mathis, Orlando Cabrera and Vladimir Guerrero have in common?

Yep, all K’d by Joba.

UPDATE, 6:37 p.m.: They just warned the fans here to head to cover and the sky is darkening quickly.

UPDATE, 6:52 p.m.: A storm cloud of biblical proportions has settled over Comerica Park. We’re expecting locusts or frogs at this point. This is what you get when you don’t call up Chris Britton.

UPDATE, 7:50 p.m.: It’s still raining. I’m now plotting how long it would take to get to the casino if the game is called.

UPDATE, 8:06 p.m.: Here is Joe Torre’s pregame interview session:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Yes, it’s still raining.

UPDATE, 8:39 p.m.: The rain has stopped and the grounds crew is preparing to pull the tarp. And the casino managers breathe a sigh of relief as i won’t be cleaning them out until later on.

I’ll let you know when they announce a start time.

UPDATE, 9:28 p.m.: This is odd. They pulled the tarp, cleaned up the field and now the tarp is back down.

UPDATE, 10:28 p.m.: First pitch is now scheduled for … 11 p.m.

UPDATE, 10:29 p.m.: Yes, I’m serious.

UPDATE, 11:04 p.m.: I feel like I did back in the day when I covered the Connecticut American Legion Tournament at Palmer Field in Middletown. Long day, final game close to midnight. Nobody in the stands.

But, what the heck, I’d be only be splitting aces and eights down the street and cursing when the dealer drew five cards and dropped a 5 on her 16. Might as well watch some baseball.

UPDATE, 11:08 p.m.: First pitch at 11:06 p.m. The rain delay was 4 hours and 1 minute.

UPDATE, 11:20 p.m.: Forgot to mention this before. But A-Rod had an authentic Detroit Pistons jersey – with his name and No. 3 on the back – and shorts hanging in his locker. It was a gift from Joe Dumars.

UPDATE, 12:35 a.m.: I’ve been answering e-mails and getting a few posts ready for the weekend, so sorry for the lack of updates.

Pudge Rodriguez just walked for the sixth time this season, the first since July 5. Clemens is not pitching well at all. But the Yankees are putting guys on base against Miller.

UPDATE, 1:03 a.m.: Curtis Granderson has 21 triples, the most in the majors since Lance Johnson had 21 for the Mets in 1996. It’s the most for a Tiger since Ty Cobb had 24 in 1917. I suspect Tyrus and Curtis would not be best of friends.

UPDATE, 1:16 a.m.: Jorge Posada has 77 RBI. Only four other catchers over the age of 35 have had that many RBI in a season. The others: Pudge Fisk (twice), Elston Howard, Al Todd and Gabby Hartnett.

UPDATE, 1:49 a.m.: Joba Chamberlain is clearly slipping as he struck out only one hitter. According to the gun here, which is fast, he hit 101.

Chamberlain now has a “shutout” as he’s thrown nine scoreless innings.

His line: 9 3 0 0 2 15 112 pitches/75 strikes.

UPDATE, 2:08 a.m.: They just announced – and I’m totally serious – that the postgame fireworks show was canceled because of soggy conditions and city of Detroit noise ordnances. Oh, and it’s also 2:08 a.m.

UPDATE, 2:11 a.m.: You have to hand it to Krazy Kyle, he has his mojo back. His last six appearances: 6 1 0 0 2 6. He took care of the Tigers on nine pitches there.

UPDATE, 2:31 a.m.: I’ve seen plenty of people as mad as Jorge Posada was at 2:28 a.m. But never at a baseball game.

The way Mo has pitched lately, it’s hard to blame Torre for bringing in the Viz.

UPDATE, 2:51 a.m.: The Yankees have put the leadoff runner in three straight innings and not scored.

Meanwhile this game has officially become stupid. It’s nearly 3 a.m. Is anybody still reading?

UPDATE, 3:07 a.m.: I hereby declare this blog free of criticism of Andy Phillips. He saved their collective butts there.

    Shelly in left, woa……didn’t know that was an option

  2. tdog August 24th, 2007 at 4:09 pm

    shelley is in right field, hope the rain holds off tonight

  3. saucy August 24th, 2007 at 4:09 pm

    “Cano lost a hit when the official scorer in Anaheim reviewed Wednesday’s game and determined that when he reached in the fourth inning it should have been an error on John Lackey. Frankly, it’s the right call. But it’s lame to change it a day later.”

    couldn’t have said it better. the run was a gift and i’m sure people here were complaining about jorge getting thrown out. just sucks though cause robbie’s on both my fantasy teams :/

  4. hmmm August 24th, 2007 at 4:11 pm

    this is silly that Giambi keeps riding the pines. makes no sense.

    Giambi needs ABs.

  5. David August 24th, 2007 at 4:13 pm

    Why is Giambi on the bench? Why do they bench Bobby Abreu against lefties in favor of Johnny Damon? In the playoffs (hopefully), is Abreu going to sit against a lefty? I hope not.

  6. Andrew August 24th, 2007 at 4:15 pm

    Villone was put on the disabled list.

    http://blog.nj.com/ledgeryanke.....e_cut.html

  7. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 4:17 pm

    IMO Cano was beating that out no matter what, even with a good throw. There should have been an error allowing the run to score, though

  8. Bologma! August 24th, 2007 at 4:20 pm

    What a stupid lineup. Duncan in the outfield instead of Damon? Damon as the DH instead of Giambi? Phillips at first instead of Betemit? Welcome to idiot Torre’s world.

  9. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 4:20 pm

    They benched Abreu for Duncan. Who would you rather see, a left handed Damon or a righty in Betemit who cant make contact??

  10. Jeff NJ August 24th, 2007 at 4:22 pm

    two lefties back to back with Hideki and Robbie.

  11. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 4:22 pm

    Betemit cant hit right handed. Last game he was in v. a lefty, I think Robertson, we sat here and killed Betemit the whole game. Those who wanted Betemit in there obviously did not watch his last game right handed

  12. asburyboss August 24th, 2007 at 4:23 pm

    I like this lineup…Damon is great against tough lefties- especially rookie ones…and Shelley needs the AB’s…Giambi is saved for a bullpen matchup. They can’t all play all the time…this is how Abreu gets a rest

    I like it

  13. SJ44 August 24th, 2007 at 4:24 pm

    Betemit can’t hit left handers. Have you watched him swing from the right side? He can’t make contact. Damon is hitting over .350 since the middle of July.

    If you want Duncan in the lineup, which isn’t a bad idea against Miller, this is one way of getting him in.

    Giambi? I am sure he will be in the lineup tomorrow.

    I would rather have Damon in for Giambi tonight because I like Jeter being out of the two hole right now. He’s hitting into too many DP’s. He would have to bat second if Giambi was in the lineup tonight.

    Seems to me to be the right lineup to attack a lefty. Since they are 2-13 against lefties on the road this year, why not try Duncan in the lineup?

  14. asburyboss August 24th, 2007 at 4:24 pm

    Villone’s “mild back strain” is codeword for “we can cut ya” or “you can go on the DL and wait til the rosters expand”?? your choice…

    Villone: “my back is a little sore”
    Cashman: “see ya Sept 1″

  15. asburyboss August 24th, 2007 at 4:25 pm

    Hideki and Robbie don;t care what hand he throws it with. I think Hideki hits lefties better than righties (he did last year anyway)..Robbie too, I believe

  16. saucy August 24th, 2007 at 4:27 pm

    coco looks stoned in his gameday pic…

  17. SJ44 August 24th, 2007 at 4:28 pm

    I call that a “good soldier” trip to the DL.

    Villone has been a good soldier so they are cutting him a break.

    Not a big deal.

  18. Bologma! August 24th, 2007 at 4:30 pm

    Go NYR, first off, you’re wrong about the Robbie call at first. Second, Andy Phillips career against LH is .532 OPS and you think he should start over Betemit?

  19. Jeremy August 24th, 2007 at 4:31 pm

    Damon has been red hot in August, going .333/.391/.456. I actually like him in the leadoff spot now.

  20. Bologma! August 24th, 2007 at 4:36 pm

    Damon’s “red hot” is the same as Giambi’s usual. Who do you think is due for let down?

  21. raymagnetic August 24th, 2007 at 4:37 pm

    Betemit is not a true switch hitter ala Jorge Posada. Betemit is a guy who can swing righthanded but he’s not goo at it. His stats against lefties are HORRIBLE!

  22. Bologma! August 24th, 2007 at 4:38 pm

    Andy Phillips is worse batting righthanded than Betemit either way.

  23. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 4:39 pm

    I think youre wrong about both. Cano would have been safe.
    http://mlb.mlb.com/media/playe.....#038;_mp=1

    Take a look. Click on Cano 3-5. I bet you it loks like he would have been safe.

    If you watched last weeks game when Betemit made CONTACT one time right handed, you would change your mind

  24. hmmm August 24th, 2007 at 4:42 pm

    Duncan is fine to play for a game, but put Giambi in there.

    you can play Duncan at 1B, Damon in the OF, and Giambi at DH.

    seriously.

    this is a young pitcher who has 33 walks in less than 60 IPs. Giambi should be in there taking pitches and getting on base.

    yes, Betemit doesn’t hit as well from the right side, but he still hit lefties much better than Phillips in his career. sad, but true.

  25. Don Vito Bellamo August 24th, 2007 at 4:42 pm

    Come on Jermaine Dye ! Put one out, dude !!!!!!

  26. Jeremy August 24th, 2007 at 4:44 pm

    They are both terrible batting right handed, but Betemit should come off the bench immediately to face a righty reliever.

    While I’m a Bemetit fan, it bothers me when any player calls himself a switch hitter but can’t hit from one side. Why bother switch hitting? Would you be even worse if you didn’t switch sides? The worst is when people reflexively praise a guy for being a switch hitter even when he can’t hit from one side, a la Bernie Williams.

  27. Don Vito Bellamo August 24th, 2007 at 4:44 pm

    Dye, Jermainem DYE !….la-hoo-SER !

  28. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 4:44 pm

    Rats! Dye wimped out.

  29. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 4:45 pm

    Bologma- Did you see the game where Betemit hit righthanded last week??

    Cano was gonna be safe no matter what. I have watched it several times

  30. Phil August 24th, 2007 at 4:45 pm

    They should have DFA’s Villone and created space on the 40.

  31. Jeremy August 24th, 2007 at 4:46 pm

    I want Giambi in the lineup too. Like hmmm said, you can get him in there without taking out Damon or Duncan. But of course we would automatically lose due to the dramatic decline in defense at first!

  32. Phil August 24th, 2007 at 4:47 pm

    According to Bernie’s splits, he hit .292 batting LH and .308 batting RH for his career. From which side could he not hit?

  33. Pete Feng August 24th, 2007 at 4:47 pm

    I want to see more Giambi too! I think we need his bats.

  34. raymagnetic August 24th, 2007 at 4:48 pm

    Why DFA Villone when you may need him to pitch in a blowout in September again?

  35. SJ44 August 24th, 2007 at 4:48 pm

    Betemit doesn’t belong in the lineup tonight. Phillips has been hitting the ball very well the past 10 days.

    Everybody forgets about his 6-10 with 4 RBI weekend against the Tigers last weekend.

    Torre has been going with the hot hand when he juggles the lineup. I see no reason why Phillips has to sit tonight. Especially for a guy (Betemit) who is brutal against lefties.

    Shelley at first? No thank you. I’d rather have Shelley in right. He’s less dangerous defensively out there than he is at first.

  36. Stef August 24th, 2007 at 4:50 pm

    Yikes! Bruney with a 6.0 ERA in four appearances in Scranton? His call up is surprising.

  37. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 4:51 pm

    How can some one say that about Bernie? It is the dumbest thin I have read to day. Bernie could hit equally for average but had a little more power from the right side. It makes no sense to say that. He was naturally righty but hit very well in the majors from the leftside. He was a real switchhitter. Betemit is not.

  38. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 4:51 pm

    Okie’s got 24 pitches, be interesting to see if they bring him out in the 8th. Not looking good for CWS considering they’ll likely see Okie because Tito won’t use him in the second game so he might as well go 2 innings unless the Bosox can tack on some runs.

    Tito’ll want Gagne in the second feature tonight so there isn’t a chance he’ll bring him in this afternoon (unless he decides to get adventurous of course).

  39. Pete Feng August 24th, 2007 at 4:52 pm

    Hope Ian Kennedy and Chris Briton will get their chance in September.

  40. whoa August 24th, 2007 at 4:53 pm

    Phillips’s OPS over the last 10 days is .689.

    http://www.baseballmusings.com.....yerID=2075

    If that’s hitting very well, the words have no meaning.

  41. raymagnetic August 24th, 2007 at 4:54 pm

    Francona and Torre can go head to head with bullpen mismanaging. There was no need for Oki to be brought in for the 7th. Lopez pitched to one batter in the 6th who promptly flied out, he could have at least started the seventh. Hopefully Francona will bring Papelbon in for this game as well although he may have learned his lesson from the last double header.

  42. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 4:55 pm

    It amazes me how the White Sox fans can put up with watching this horrible bullpen (outside of Jenks, of course).

  43. raymagnetic August 24th, 2007 at 4:57 pm

    Just ignore what I just said, it looks like the White Sox are about to let the Red Sox blow this one wide open. Damn you White Sox, Damn You.

  44. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 4:57 pm

    J-Dawg- I dont think White Sox fans watch the White Sox at all

  45. barbados August 24th, 2007 at 4:58 pm

    Villone is going on the DL, not DFA (lower back strain)

    http://blog.nj.com/ledgeryankees/200…ilone_cut.html

  46. Phil August 24th, 2007 at 4:59 pm

    someone else can just as easily pitch in blowouts in September. We need to idiotproof the pen against Torre. And Britton, rather than Bruney should have been called up.

  47. Pete Feng August 24th, 2007 at 4:59 pm

    OMG! What the hell are CWS doing out there.

  48. barbados August 24th, 2007 at 4:59 pm

    Sorry here’s the right link for the Villone news:

    http://blog.nj.com/ledgeryanke.....e_cut.html

  49. SJ44 August 24th, 2007 at 5:00 pm

    He went 6-10 last weekend against the Tigers. Last I checked, they are playing the Tigers tonight.

    He helped them win 2 of the 3 games they won last weekend. He should be in the lineup.

    Wilson Betemit can’t hit lefthanders. Let’s not decide its an aberration. He’s been awful from the right side as a Yankee.

    I know the Andy Haters can’t get enough of it, but he should be in the lineup tonight. Its really not that tough a call.

    The White Sox are a bad team. Expecting the Red Sox to stumble against them is wishful thinking at its finest. Its not happening.

  50. Jeremy August 24th, 2007 at 5:00 pm

    “How can some one say that about Bernie? It is the dumbest thin I have read to day. Bernie could hit equally for average but had a little more power from the right side. It makes no sense to say that. He was naturally righty but hit very well in the majors from the leftside. He was a real switchhitter. Betemit is not.”

    Bernie 2005: .746 OPS against RHP, .591 OPS against LHP. Terrible on both sides of the plate.

    Bernie 2006: .688 OPS against RHP, .936 OPS against LHP.
    Terrible on one side of the plate, unfortunately the side that he most frequently hit on.

    Not a “real switchhitter” except for the fact that he did attempt to bat on each side of the plate.

  51. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 5:00 pm

    Go NYR- You’re right. I bet they’re counting down the days to the Bears’ first regular season game at Soldier Field!!

  52. Phil August 24th, 2007 at 5:02 pm

    Jeremy, look at his career numbers…not his numbers when he was at the end of his career.

  53. raymagnetic August 24th, 2007 at 5:03 pm

    Jeremy, when Bernie got older he was a worse hitter from the left side. In his younger days he was a true switch hitter.

  54. whoa August 24th, 2007 at 5:08 pm

    So you think that Phillips has a special talent against the Tigers?

  55. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 5:09 pm

    Jeremy-The numbers dont lie. Bernie had over 100 home runs fomr both sides of the plate. He hit near .300 from both sides of the plate. To say Bernie was not a “true switch hitter” based on the last 2 years of his career is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. You must have no idea what your talking about. You are clueless or you just became a Yankees fan or youre a Mets fan. I dont know which one it is though

  56. Jeremy August 24th, 2007 at 5:10 pm

    Yes, Bernie has great career numbers from both sides. No argument there. I was talking about the comments made during this past offseason, which now seems like a century ago, saying that Bernie should come back because he is a switch hitter, even though he had lost the ability to hit lefthanded.

  57. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 5:12 pm

    torre on MMD

  58. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 5:14 pm

    Jeremy- “The worst is when people reflexively praise a guy for being a switch hitter even when he can’t hit from one side, a la Bernie Williams.”

    You never sadi anything regarding “comments made during this past offseason, which now seems like a century ago, saying that Bernie should come back because he is a switch hitter, even though he had lost the ability to hit lefthanded.”

  59. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 5:14 pm

  60. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 5:15 pm

    I always felt good when Bernie was at the plate in a clutch situation, whether he was batting from the left or the right side. The stats never made a bit of difference to me.

    P.S. It’s good to see Shelley Duncan in the lineup. I’m not sure exactly why, but I always get the feeling something good is going to happen when Shelley is playing. He brings the fire and enthusiasm that rubs off on everyone else.

  61. SJ44 August 24th, 2007 at 5:16 pm

    Phillips is a better hitter from the right side than Betemit. That’s not in dispute, unless folks want to argue for the sake of arguing. Phillips has hit well against the Tigers. .600 is .600. In other words, its .600 better from the right side against Betemit. I don’t think its an issue.

    They have gone with the hot hand throughout this streak. Why change now? For whatever reason, Phillips has hit well against the Tigers. There really isn’t any reason to change the lineup now. Especially inserting a guy who is awful against RH pitching.

  62. Jeremy August 24th, 2007 at 5:17 pm

    Go NYR, that is what I meant, sorry I was unclear and apparently enraged you.

  63. Huuz August 24th, 2007 at 5:18 pm

    what happened to viewing the splits on espn.com for each player?

    did i miss something…?

  64. Don Vito Bellamo August 24th, 2007 at 5:20 pm

    WhiteSux are out s*cking the BoSux…DANG….Time to Shell the Schill tonight then…..NEXT !

  65. raymagnetic August 24th, 2007 at 5:25 pm

    Mike Myers about to do what he does best – not get out lefties.

  66. raymagnetic August 24th, 2007 at 5:26 pm

    Nice to see Myers sucking it up on another team. :o)

  67. mike August 24th, 2007 at 5:28 pm

    duncan is the man… i wouldnt care if they bench arod 4 him…shelly 4-5 2hrs 2 singles 4rbis

  68. Pete Feng August 24th, 2007 at 5:28 pm

    Myers just walk Ortiz and Manny.

  69. Mr. Faded Glory August 24th, 2007 at 5:30 pm

    Do you think Pete will ask Torre or Cash about Britton?

    ‘Cause that would be nice.

  70. Phil August 24th, 2007 at 5:30 pm

    It is always amazing to me to watch older ML reliever bounce around and teams pay millions hoping they will strike gold rather than trying out a kid from the minors. Especially for teams that won’t make the playoffs.

  71. NYY August 24th, 2007 at 5:31 pm

    Myers walks Ortiz & Manny then gives a double to Lowell…This guys really stinks.

  72. SJ44 August 24th, 2007 at 5:32 pm

    He may be a nice guy, and Wang may miss his sushi buddy but, I am really glad they DFA’ed him.

    When these trick-type guys lose the strikezone, which he has, they can’t get anybody out.

    I don’t care what side of the rubber he works, he can’t get outs anymore. I am amazed the White Sox gave him a shot.

    Shows how bad they think their bullpen is if they think Myers is an upgrade.

  73. stuart August 24th, 2007 at 5:32 pm

    man I miss myers, proctor, and all the other terrible performers… we still have some real dogs in our pen but less then a few months ago….

    proctor won a game or 2 for la but he got lucky. in 1 gave up the lead on a hr to helton but got bailed out by his team..

    myers stinks he is 38 and is not recapturing the fountain of youth..

  74. Big Johnson August 24th, 2007 at 5:33 pm

    “He went 6-10 last weekend against the Tigers. Last I checked, they are playing the Tigers tonight.

    He helped them win 2 of the 3 games they won last weekend. He should be in the lineup.”

    This is a no brainer. If you are going to once again blindly look at stats you certainly would remain oblivious to what Andy has done not only with his glove, but his bat. He helped us win 2 of those games against a wild card foe. Ops, Obs, Slg % be damned.

    He starts because of his glove, his timely offensive production of late is merely icing.

    BJ

  75. stuart August 24th, 2007 at 5:33 pm

    duncan for abreu is a good idea. abreu is a woos against hard throwing lefties and miller is one of them….

  76. NYY August 24th, 2007 at 5:35 pm

    Myers so far this Inning

    Coco -Out
    Ortiz – Walk
    Manny – Walk
    Lowell – Double – 1 run scored
    Keilty – Sac Fly – 1 runs scored
    Varitek – HOME RUN – 2 runs scored

  77. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 5:35 pm

    Mike Myers has given up 4 er for the white soxs.

  78. NYY August 24th, 2007 at 5:36 pm

    and there is still only 2 outs.

    HAHA Mel. Myers sounded like he was a good guy, but if people think Mike Mussina is toast, myers must be burnt to a crisp.

  83. Joe from Long Island August 24th, 2007 at 5:41 pm

    There is no nice way to say this about a nice guy – Mike Meyers is brutal. From what I’ve read, at one point he was thinking about calling it a career after this season and going back home to Colorado. This may clinch it for him.

  84. Phil August 24th, 2007 at 5:42 pm

    Joe: He said it on Mike and the Mad Dog. He said he was thinking of calling it a career and enjoying his forties while he could still move his left arm without pain.

  86. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 5:44 pm

    I’ve figured out how the White Sox fans can watch this bullpen- if there are any. They should do like the New Orleans Saints fans used to do in the late ’70s- they should put those sacks over their heads!

  87. S.o.S.27 August 24th, 2007 at 5:45 pm

    Someone might have touched upon this subject,but why bring bruney instead of Britton? Bruney stunk here and hasnt proven anything in the minors. Plus he the a $hht fit when he was informed that he was being sent down.NOT COOL. Britton has to be a better option.

  88. Jeremy August 24th, 2007 at 5:46 pm

    I wonder if Myers still says he wants to be a starter?

  89. Pete Feng August 24th, 2007 at 5:47 pm

    Another terrible outing for Myers. So glad that he is not a problem that we need to worry about in our pen.

    Does anyone know why Britton not being call up in the bullpen? He has been brilliant in the minor. He deserve a shot.

  90. Pete Feng August 24th, 2007 at 5:50 pm

    Hope CWS can at least put on some fight tonight.

  91. Phil August 24th, 2007 at 5:52 pm

    I don’t have access to YES right now…did Torre say anything of note during his Mike and the MadDog appearance?

  92. S.o.S.27 August 24th, 2007 at 5:54 pm

    Maybe we can trade Villone to chicago. Seems like they like our trash(Vasquez,Contreres,meyers etc.) Well give them Farns as a bonus.

  93. mel August 24th, 2007 at 5:57 pm

    Wang must be weeping inside.

    S.o.S.27,

    It’s brought up daily here. No one knows, it seems that question is too hardball for the media to ask Joe. It’s probably on the ‘do not ask’ list.

    People here think Britton did something to Joe or Cashman which is just silly.

    Number 1, they probably don’t even know who he is (of course they do, but when would have the opportunity to run over Cashman’s dog or get caught rubbing Torre’s wife’s feet?).

    Number 2, Farnsworth is an example that the only roadblock to getting cut is a salary threshold. You can be a bad teammate with a dark side and a big mouth, but your job is safe if it’s not feasible to dump your salary. Actually, that’s being a little unfair to Farnsworth as he seems to have gotten his act together. Probably scared straight after seeing all the pitchers being dumped on the side of the road. Point is, you could be a horrific being and still pitch for this team if you make enough money.

  94. Don Vito Bellamo August 24th, 2007 at 5:58 pm

    ChiSox will get ‘em in the nightcap…we will trounce the Tigers and when all is said and done…only 4.5 games back !!! GO YANKEES !!!

  95. Matt Waters August 24th, 2007 at 6:04 pm

    Josh Phelps has always been a personal favorite, and I’ve followed the peaks and valleys of his career with great interest. When the Yankees plucked him in the Rule V, I couldn’t have been more excited. Now, seeing him mash with the Pirates, after the Bombers unceremoniously dumped him without ever truly commissioning serious playing time to aid his cause, well, I’m bummed. Phelps could have been a real asset. Oh, well. Keep tearing it up Josh!

  96. S.o.S.27 August 24th, 2007 at 6:05 pm

    mel,

    I agree, it seems that if you have a big contract that you can bad mouth the whole orginization and still have a job. I dont think that would have happened in the 90′s. Good example Mondesi got shipped out of here in a hurry. As far as Farns turning the corner,Im not sold. He looked like the same old Farns in the Angels series where Bettimet saved his tail.

    I just dont get why not bring Britton knowing he has Major League experience and in the a.l. east. To top it off was good last year as well. Must have burned a bridge somewhere.

  97. Joe from Long Island August 24th, 2007 at 6:06 pm

    I know it’s been said before, but, man, the White Sox really stink. It looks more and more like they have just plain quit a long time ago. (Although, I bet they haven’t forgotten to cash their paychecks.) They don’t need to fire Ozzie, they need new players next year. A lot of new players.

  99. mel August 24th, 2007 at 6:14 pm

    Matt,

    I, too, liked Josh and was bummed when he left. Then he kind of jumped back on the radar and you’d see headlines on espn.com like “Phelps leads Pirates to Victory”. And you think cool for him. Then you realize that a lot of players come through our farm system and even through the clubhouse that are good players, but not quite good enough for the Yankees. Lots of players have had the privilege of playing for the Yankees organization, but many of them may have had better chances to play in the bigs if they been drafted by other teams.

  105. mel August 24th, 2007 at 6:28 pm

    Joe,

    The funny thing is that the AL Central was touted as the best division in baseball and the wild card was coming out of it. Things don’t always play out like they do on paper. Not only is that division weak (I mean just look at the Yankees record against that division) but it’s more likely that the wildcard will come out of the East or even the West.

    I like that Detroit is finally coming back to earth. Leyland got a lot of credit, but basically that engine was firing on all cylinders last year. Boy that Kenny Rogers has some bad karma. I wonder why.

    I’d rather Cleveland make it into the playoffs. They’re younger and haven’t had that taste of success yet.

    Chicago. Pee-ew. They went nowhere fast. That championship team got old and bad.

    Minnesota. The only thing that remotely interests me there is someone with towels monagrammed with JS. Still can’t believe Morneau beat out Jeter for the MVP.

    Royals. Looking better than in recent years. I think Gordon’s a perennial all-star (every team has to send one player, right?). They’re not a walkover win like they used to be.

    The East is tough with Boston, the Bombers, the Jays, and don’t look now, the O’s. If Tampa can get pitching, that team will be good in a couple of years.

    What’s my point? The AL Central is O-ver-ra-ted.

  108. Kevin M. August 24th, 2007 at 6:29 pm

    Now that Farnsworth has had a few decent outings recntly, anyone else think he might be trade bait? The Mets, among many other teams, are despearate for BP help…Farns could be helped by a switch to the NL.

  109. Darrin August 24th, 2007 at 6:29 pm

    they’ll get the game in. The storms are extremely strong, but the line is fairly narrow on radar. The chance of the game being delayed, however is 100%.

  116. Doreen August 24th, 2007 at 6:36 pm

    Mel –

    It just goes to show you how under-appreciated the Yankees are for winning their division for the last 11 years. And, yes, even the Braves in the NL were under-appreciated. It’s not easy to do. And even this year, whether they do or not, at least our Yankees are making it close.

  117. Joe from Long Island August 24th, 2007 at 6:36 pm

    Mel – I agree with your succinct summation. And I had the same thought about Detroit last year; they got exposed in the WS.

    Kevin M. – The Yanks won’t do a deal with the Mets, for George’s fear of the Mets’ getting the better of it. Though if there ever is a deal, it might be a sign of his declining input.

    Darrin – I hope you’re right. Not only would a DH tomorrow or Sunday not be kind to our ‘pen – I need a baseball game tonight.

    They’ve all looked up at the mound and wondered how the guy who just demolished them, who spent less than a year in the minors, and who signed for a bonus any team in baseball could have afforded, could have slipped out of the 1st round. Then as they walked back to their dugouts, tails between their legs, they tipped their caps to Cashman and Oppenheimer. They were subsequently fined for slapping their GMs.

    It does not take great expertise to understand what’s going on when studying a radar loop. It’s simple enough to determine if the rain is going to be long lasting, as it is very easy to see how wide the coverage of rain is, and how fast it is moving.

    More importantly to your post, a meteorologist does a heckuva lot more than interpret radar images. Even TV weathermen do more than that.

    Farnsy nearly imploded Monday night. It took a great play from Wilson Betemit to keep everything together. Call me crazy but I still would have kept him over Wickman. Wickman has been around for so long, plus he’s had Tommy John surgery before. Farnsworth had back trouble last season, but at least he’s never missed as much time as Wickman.

  171. WHB August 24th, 2007 at 8:00 pm

    By the way, I have it on a pretty good source that Cashman detests Wickman as a player and a person. (Something about the problems he created in 96 and his being a redneck)

    Evidently, the reports of a Farnsworth for Wickman trade were exaggerated.

    If the yankees are rained out tonite, and play two tomorrow (assuming they would?), how would it affect their rotation for the Boston series? Boston desperately needed to play two today (after last nite’s rainout), or they might have had to play 4 games in two days, which would have totally compressed their rotation and blown out their bullpen. It looks like they’re dodging that bullet.

    Obviously, I’m hoping that rain screws up the Yankee plans (maybe a Matt DeSalvo callup and start)? Only kidding …. great run by you guys …. it has certainly become interesting.

    My guess they won’t push Mike back. They likely don’t want him facing the soxs. They will bring someone else up. Hopefully not a Karstans or Igawa. I’d like to see Ian get a start.

    WHB- TJ surgery or no TJ surgery doesn’t matter in this case, correct. I would still stay as far away from Wickman as humanly possible. He has pitched decently in August, but he had a nightmarish couple of months.

    Posada, a member of the 1993 Prince William Cannons, will officially be inducted on Aug. 25, becoming the seventh member of the Hall of Fame. He spent most of that season with the Yankees’ Carolina League club, batting .259 with 17 homers and 61 RBIs.

    I can’t believe the Yankees have no control over what items are made with the Yankee logo on it!!

    * Yankees condemn merchandise: The Yankees released a statement on Friday condemning the sale of caps with gang-related logos and colors featuring the club’s logo, saying that the caps — the subject of protests in Harlem this week — were made under a licensing agreement between New Era and Major League Baseball and were not subject to the Yankees’ approval nor shown to the team at any point prior to their retail distribution.
    “The New York Yankees oppose any garment that may be associated with gangs or gang-related activity,” the team’s statement read. “Upon learning of the existence of these caps on Friday morning, the New York Yankees contacted Major League Baseball. We were notified by the Commissioner’s Office that steps had already been taken to recall the caps from all points of sale. The league ensured that no such product will be manufactured in the future.”

  230. Stef August 24th, 2007 at 9:06 pm

    Sounds like Bruney’s attitude still sucks:

    DETROIT — Brian Bruney rejoined the Yankees on Friday at Comerica Park, re-inserted as a bullpen member after spending more than two weeks with the club’s Triple-A affiliate.
    The call couldn’t come soon enough for Bruney, who had a 3.40 ERA in 50 appearances for New York before being optioned on Aug. 7. He didn’t take the demotion well as he left Rogers Centre in Toronto, but had a more level outlook upon his return.

    “I work here,” Bruney said. “I’m an employee. I do what I’m told. I’m still going to do my job wherever I’m at. Obviously, I was upset, but who wouldn’t be?”

    Bruney, 25, was brought up from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when left-hander Ron Villone hit the 15-day disabled list with a mild lower back strain.

    The Yankees are optimistic that Bruney may be able to give them more length as a result of his four-appearance Minor League stint. Bruney went two innings in his final relief appearance for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

    His previous high this season was 1 2/3 innings on May 27, though the club had tried to coax him through two innings on other occasions only to lift him.

    “Hopefully, it’s more of a weapon,” Yankees manager Joe Torre said.

    Part of the Yankees’ rationale for sending down Bruney revolved around his control, which proved erratic at times. In 23 appearances from June 3 on, Bruney walked 17 in 16 2/3 innings, striking out just eight.

    The Yankees briefly instructed Bruney to try throwing from the windup to help his control, a tweak that he said he feels comfortable with, though he bristled at the idea that he was having difficulty throwing strikes.

    “I’m a reliever,” Bruney said. “I can’t come in and set it on a tee for a guy. If that’s what you want, I can give up hits all day, but sometimes I’ve got to try to get a strikeout.

    “You throw pitches that you think they’re going to swing at, that not necessarily are strikes. You try to make them look like them. The walks are high, but it’s not like I don’t know how to throw strikes.”

    17 walks, 8 K’s since June. Obviously, “his” way wasn’t working. In fact, it failed miserably.

    He should shut up and do what’s he’s told. He may actually last this time if he listens to somebody other than Kyle Farnsworth. He’s lucky he got recalled.

    If he thinks he’s God’s answer to pitching, he will be back in Scranton in a week.

    Its amazing how some guys just refuse to deal with reality.

  252. Cumberberg August 24th, 2007 at 9:20 pm

    and contrast bruney’s attitude to joba’s generally. the guy could learn a little humility and realize that at 25, he might actually learn a little something from others who have had a lot of success for many years. obviously the contrast between his and cairo’s departure from the clubhouse was also lost on him.

  253. Matty August 24th, 2007 at 9:20 pm

    I saw Posada’s wife working out on “Yankees On Deck”. That single bit of videotape made me realize that Jorge has a much, much bigger pimphand than Jeter ever will.

    Talk about working the count 41 pitches in the 4th inning with one out.

    I guess they have golf dates.

  255. T-rific August 24th, 2007 at 9:21 pm

    Wow — what a “man”. Someone should have told him that spewing in the press can have repercussions. Like I said in another blog, maybe the reason Britton isn’t getting called up is because he is NOT a squeaky wheel and he does what he needs to without much fanfare. Talking about Bruney’s performance is embarrassing when compared to Britton (Ex: The last game pitched Wednesday night, Britton was called in with the bases loaded and no outs. He was flawless. He effortlessly killed that inning and 2 more behind it.) But… the powers that be reward … oh, hell … WE all see it, right?

  256. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 9:22 pm

    Jorge probably has the hottest wife on the team. Hands down

  257. Stef August 24th, 2007 at 9:23 pm

    Strange thing about Bruney is that he seemed to be truly grateful when he got picked up by the Yankees. Somewhere between that point and now, his attitude went to hell. Who does he think he is?? Yikes.

  258. Jeter's girlfriend August 24th, 2007 at 9:24 pm

  260. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 9:25 pm

    I don’t understand why they refuse to call him up. Why call up this guy who came off the scrap heap that seems to think everyone owes him something. As opposed to having to earn it?

  261. AL August 24th, 2007 at 9:25 pm

    Bruney kinda looks like Pete Abe a little….

    His attitude is terrible but if he gets his act together – it’s another weapon in the pen

  262. Cumberberg August 24th, 2007 at 9:27 pm

    anyone have any news on a start time?

  263. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 9:28 pm

    Morgan — CWS is 56-71 on the season. That’s worse than Kansas City; in fact, only Tampa Bay has a worse record in the AL. There’s no one hitting over .268 in their lineup tonight. So, yeah, just about anybody would beat the White Sox.

    the yanks went 4-3 in chicago this year. however the 3 losses were back in the beginning of the season before the yanks turned it around. Right now the Sox are a VERY bad team- they couldn’t beat the yanks or sox.

    It would be very surprising to see the yanks fall 10 games behind the sox the way they are playing now.

    I was watching the Mets earlier and they have this section for contest winners with recliners and such and the people get to sit with the Geico caveman. They interviewed him. They offended him in 2 seconds. very funny

  290. Morgan Pressel August 24th, 2007 at 9:43 pm

    “Morgan-

    the yanks went 4-3 in chicago this year. however the 3 losses were back in the beginning of the season before the yanks turned it around. Right now the Sox are a VERY bad team- they couldn’t beat the yanks or sox.”

    Really…you don’t think the White Sox would hammer Mussina? And they hit Clemens much harder than they did either Schilling or Beckett.

    Boston is taking care of business very methodically. Same with Seattle.

    And despite what Pete told all of us at the beginning of the season…THOSE GAMES DID COUNT!

    Sheeesh this rain delay is ridiculous! I can’t imagine the game going on either if it doesn’t start soon.

    Thanks for the updates though Pete – sounds like you guys are kept as in the dark as fans sometimes!

    good for Boston that they have the lead in the division… But as we well know as Yankee fans, it ultimately means very little come the playoffs.

  308. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 9:51 pm

    We haven’t had too much trouble with the Devil Rays this year. I don’t remember Boston getting 21 against them. Run along Morgan, Michelle Wie is waiting for you!

  310. Kill-Schill-(ing) August 24th, 2007 at 9:54 pm

    what’s the rule about how long a team can wait before they have to call a game. I can’t imagine if the they delay this any longer, they can play tonight.

    Whose decision is it anyway? The Tigers or MLB’s? When does that the latter’s authority override the former’s

    Anyone know the rule? I want to go out and try to get laid if they call this game.

  311. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 9:54 pm

    “And Boston won the division by ..”

    Ain’t nobody won nothing yet, Cleo.

    “fatten up on the bad teams ”

    haha Kill Schill, replace laid with blind drunk and that’s my dilemma too…rain delay or Jager bombs?

  314. Morgan Pressel August 24th, 2007 at 9:58 pm

    “We haven’t had too much trouble with the Devil Rays this year. I don’t remember Boston getting 21 against them. Run along Morgan, Michelle Wie is waiting for you!”

    The Yanks have the same chance of making the playoffs as Michelle does of winning a tournament!

  315. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 9:59 pm

    anyone get an update on a possible start time? i could have watched all three episodes of VH-1′s the Pickup Artist by now.

  316. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 9:59 pm

    Oh wait a minute, that’s cold!!

  317. Kill-Schill-(ing) August 24th, 2007 at 9:59 pm

    at least the Rangers tied the score against the Mariners, so this night might be a total loss.

    Yeah, I can relate BBB. Trying to get laid usually entails getting or receiving a few too many Jaeger bombs then are healthy.

    it’s only 9:00 pm in Detroit – maybe another hour, then Rocket has to drink his Geritol and milk of magnesia shake and hit the hay?

  324. Enough is enough August 24th, 2007 at 10:02 pm

    Call this fuc king game already!!! It’s 10pm, 3 hours after the start time. They expect fans to wait around 3 hours for a game that’ll probably last that long? If this game started at 10pm and ended at 1am, that’s about 6.5-7 hours at the ballpark. Ridiculous! Not to mention the players waiting around amped up to play.

    This is why I don’t attend games. If a game starts at 7pm and it’s still delayed at 9pm, yo, I want to exchange my ticket for one for another game cuz I have a life. If one could do that, I certainly would, and if the game starts at 9:30, so be it, I can listen to it on the radio then on tv when I get home or do whatever I have/ want to do.

    New rule time:

    If rain lasts for 2 hours after start time, the game is called. If you think it should be 3 hours, fine (maybe that is the rule).

  325. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 10:03 pm

    Acula- I made that mistake last night and got torn apart. Detroit is in the eastern time zone. I was shocked when they told me this

  328. YankeeJosh August 24th, 2007 at 10:05 pm

    Acula,

    Detroit is on Eastern time. 10 PM there now.

  329. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:05 pm

    Enough is Enough – the less Detroit fans the better. tomorrow is a night game so let em play as late as they want.

  330. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:05 pm

    Wow, 10:30?! No chance I even sniff last call then, time for a liquor store run!

    Despite how annoying the extra wait is, playing this game tonight instead of a dblheader tomorrow or Sun. is a definite advantage to us as we had off yesterday, our pen is rested, while their pen got taxed last night in a 10 inning game, particular Zumaya who struggled mightily.

    Why would all the Detroit games start at 7 if they were in the Central Zone? The teams like Chicago, KC, St Louis and Minnesota start at 8, so wouldn’t Detroit too, if they actually were Central?

    Kennedy is pitching for Scranton tommorow.
    Courtesy of Chad Jennings:
    “Ian Kennedy’s next start will be Saturday, not Friday which would be his normal turn in the rotation. With an off day Wednesday, Steven White will start Friday on normal rest and Kennedy will be pushed back a day to pitch on six days rest. Seems like a normal, safety first, Yankees move to preserve a promising young arm. Earlier in the year Kennedy was limited to five innings, no matter what. Now he gets a few extra days. It’s not a bad idea.”

  399. Bob August 24th, 2007 at 10:34 pm

    Seattle’s bullpen is good, but a rotation of Hernandez, Washburn, Weaver,Batista, and Ramirez?????? Aside from King Feliz, it’s a bunch of lousy retreads.

  403. bill August 24th, 2007 at 10:35 pm

    It’s an eye-opener watching Seattle’s bullpen not cave in like NY’s does (minus Joba). If they get a lead in the 6th inning, the game is pretty much over.

    And Seattle’s starters keep them in the game, which cannot be said of the Yanks.

    This was a miserable season.

  404. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:37 pm

  405. NYY August 24th, 2007 at 10:37 pm

    If Seattle wins today and Angels lose then they will be tied with the Angels. That means both Angels & Mariners will be tied for the Wild Card lead. Interesting.

  406. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 10:37 pm

    Hopefully this game won’t be like the Mets-Braves from July 4th of ’85, the one that ended at 3:55 a.m.

  407. Chris August 24th, 2007 at 10:38 pm

    gonna go nap…wake me up at 11

  408. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:38 pm

    Bob: That’s what annoys me about Seattle. I give their bullpen full credit for being very good, but how can a rotation like that even keep them in as many games as it seems to?!

  409. dontfirecash August 24th, 2007 at 10:38 pm

    The Rock was a classic. A list cast of Nic Cage, Sean Connery, Ed Hopper, that hot chick who Cage’s girlfriend, the guy from the West Wing…Absolute classic.

  410. passer by August 24th, 2007 at 10:39 pm

    This is feeling like waiting for a flight in Chicago. First its delayed 30 mins. Then 1 hr. Then 2. After waiting for 4 hrs its finally cancelled and you are rebooked 2 days later.

  411. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:39 pm

    East – gulp Boston
    Central – Cleveland
    West – Seattle
    Card – Bombers

  412. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:39 pm

    I must say, I would absolutely love it if LAA crapped the bed completely and missed playoffs while SEA won the division…but what Yankee fan wouldn’t?

  413. shinkou August 24th, 2007 at 10:40 pm

    Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t there some kind of a curfew for baseball games?

  414. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:40 pm

    The Lord of the Rings in HD on TNT… or if you’re so inclined… Mission: Man Band on VH-1

  415. Bob August 24th, 2007 at 10:41 pm

    BBB, that’s what keeps telling me they can’t keep up. But now that there’s just 35 games or so left maybe they can???

  416. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 10:41 pm

    We could have really helped ourselves if we had won at least 2 games in laa than. :(

  417. asburyboss August 24th, 2007 at 10:42 pm

    “A Toyota” spelled backwards is “A Toyota”

    PLay Ball! This schedule is turning Yankee fans nocturnal for Christs sakes. This morning it felt like the sun was burning my flesh

  418. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 10:42 pm

    Back in the old days the American League didn’t allow an inning to start after 1 a.m., but the rule doesn’t exist anymore.

  419. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:42 pm

    did anyone read Peters post about Seattle and the rough stretch ahead? their offense wont keep it up and their pitching wont keep it up.

  420. NYY August 24th, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    Seattle has a very good bullpen. Their Starting pitching keeps them in the games. Felix is a good pitcher. Washburn is a good 2-3 starter. Batista is having the best year of his career even though is not that great. Jeff Weaver hs pitched really well off late after pitching very bad to start the season(Dave Duncan Effect??). And the 5th starter Ramirez is bad, especially on the road

  421. Ben August 24th, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    How does a baseball game end at 355 AM?!!

    That would be a 5 and a half hour game that starts at 1030.

  422. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    i could go for some 7-11 cheese nachos and one of those french vanilla coffee things that squirts into your cup out of a machine. hard to explain but its nice and syrupy.

  423. Matt August 24th, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    Funny you should mention Lord Of The Rings, that what I’m watching until game time :)

  424. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:44 pm

    i predict this mighty seattle bullpen that you speak of will blow the lead tonight. if im wrong, the first round of french vanilla coffee things is on me.

  425. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    Bob, supposedly they (SEA) have the toughest remaining schedule out of any of the contenders. I don’t know exactly who they play although I do believe they see Oakland a lot, a team we know LOVES to make noise in the 2nd half…so hopefully this’ll be the time for their house of cards to start crumbling. (Although, again, I’d MUCH rather LAA be the one left out in the cold, just dunno how realistic that is.)

  426. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    Ben, they had several rain delays and ejections. That was back when Davey Johnson was managing the Mets and I think he got tossed.

  427. Bob August 24th, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    Can Rocket stay up this late anyways?

    You know how those old timers need their sleep. ;)

  428. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    Matt, at least youre not watching mission: man band. not the best celeb-reality has to offer.

  429. NYY August 24th, 2007 at 10:46 pm

    _How does a baseball game end at 355 AM?!!_

    You will know how after tonight or maybe tommorrow morning.HEHE.

  430. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:46 pm

    NYY, I blame Dave Duncan for Weaver’s lack of complete Weaveresque suckitude as well.

  431. asburyboss August 24th, 2007 at 10:47 pm

    Kinsler is a gagger

  432. Bob August 24th, 2007 at 10:47 pm

    BBB, in a perfect world I’d love to see Seattle keep winning and Anaheim free fall. Just don’t see LAA falling though.

  433. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:47 pm

    aaaaaahhhh, Gameday finally has it in warmup! Be still my heart!

  434. adkwriter August 24th, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    BBB, I think you’re overestimating the Mariners.

    Allow me to show you what their Pythagorean record says about them…

    According to the BP Adjusted Standings, the Mariners are 7 games over where they should be.

    Yankees are six wins beneath theirs.

  435. mel August 24th, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    Wow. The Yankees must have some major pull. MLB calls the games, right? You know the Yankees don’t want to mess up their rotation for the Boston series.

  436. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    That other game lasted at least 15 or 16 innings. I don’t think I can last past 10 tonight!

  437. asburyboss August 24th, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    so is michael young

  438. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    We are minutes away.

    Russ is stupid. Why wasn’t the game called. Um cause they don’t want to play a double header. Tomorrows game is a night game so it won’t affect them for tomorrow. They just won’t be able to go out tonight after the game. They will be headed back to the hotel for some beauty sleep.

  439. Joe from Long Island August 24th, 2007 at 10:49 pm

    I just got back from dinner out with friends, and thought I’d see the recap…An 11:00 start? Peter, did locusts and frogs truly fall from the sky? I guess that’s what they have to do to avoid a DH, which wouldn’t be good from a ‘pen perspective, but, man…Oh, for the days of leaded coffee…

  440. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:49 pm

    week 1: Ian Kinsler 20HR
    weeks 2 – 30: Ian Kinsler 0 HR
    week 31: Gilbert Gottfried is a father… yikes

  441. Ben August 24th, 2007 at 10:51 pm

    I’m almost getting ready to go to bed, wake up in the morning, and catch the end of the game.

  442. Tom August 24th, 2007 at 10:51 pm

    Gagne is in, all hope is not lost for a ChiSox comeback

    It’s already 10:50, u can make it 3:55AM. keep the hope.

  444. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:52 pm

    adkwriter, that’s what I was saying a month ago about the Pythag. W-L theory, the run differential, etc…I expected SEA to fade out in late July, but it hasn’t happened yet, so now I’m taking them a bit more seriously. In the end I fervently hope you’re right and the numbers bear out!

  445. Drew August 24th, 2007 at 10:52 pm

    This is the dumbest thing ever. Whomever is making these decisions should be shot. And the fans should get their money back.

  446. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 10:52 pm

    I’d hate to say it, but I’d rather prefer the Ms missed the playoffs. I just can’t Seattle’s inhabitants and I can’t stand the Mariners organization.

  447. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 10:53 pm

    Lord of the Rings?

    Nah, I’m watching School Rumble.

  448. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 10:53 pm

    I think we have a better shot agains the m’s than the laa.

  449. Sherri August 24th, 2007 at 10:54 pm

    I agree, Jennifer.

  450. Bobby August 24th, 2007 at 10:54 pm

    Whats so bad with Seattle and its organization?

  451. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:54 pm

    Is it me or does Eric Gagne look like the son of Kurt Rambis and Hideki Irabu? suspension of disbelief is required for this exercise…..

  452. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 10:55 pm

    At least the rain delay has allowed me a chance to catch up on NFL preseason. If anyone cares- Titans defeated the Bills 28-17 and Pete’s Patriots are up 24-7 over the Panthers late in the 4th quarter.

  453. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:55 pm

    Alot of their fans are pretty annoying too Terry, M’s fans and especially Seahawk fans. And I do loathe Ichiro. I’ve never seen one person get so many cheap hits in my life.

    But I do like the idea of a short series vs. them a lot more than vs. LAA!

  454. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 10:56 pm

    The Tigers better be giving the fans their money back or at least a game swap

  455. Magic Number August 24th, 2007 at 10:57 pm

  456. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 10:57 pm

    Jennifer; no doubt, but I’m still rooting for the As (yes, a lost cause), and if not them, the Halos.

  457. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 10:57 pm

    Wait till he loses a step. All those infield singles will be outs.

  458. NYY August 24th, 2007 at 10:57 pm

    What’s going on Gagne pitched a scoreless inning for the Sox. I think the check from the Yankees was delayed by the USPS.

  459. mel August 24th, 2007 at 10:58 pm

    BBB,

    The one thing that really bugs me about Ichiro is his routine in the batter’s box. You know how he points his bat at the pitcher, swings his left hand around and then pulls his right sleeve up? Every frickin time!

  460. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 10:58 pm

    You know if it was YS they would.

  461. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 10:58 pm

    LOL, they’re using Gagme in 10-1 games now?

    Ah, how the mighty fall…

  462. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 10:58 pm

    another cheepy cheepy for ichiro just now

  463. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 10:59 pm

    Just like Nomar. His routine drove me NUTS!

  464. chazzh August 24th, 2007 at 10:59 pm

    actually – before the game- the home team decides the game’s fate. after the game starts- the umps decide. So – detroit must be trying to get this game in too.

  465. Jason August 24th, 2007 at 10:59 pm

    The game was never getting pused back to tomorrow. The last thing MLB/FOX wants is a Yankees-Tigers game going against the FOX game of the week.

  466. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:00 pm

    Gagne and Schilling in the same game. Reminds me of my childhood watching Earthquake and Typhoon in a tagteam WWF match. those were the days.

  467. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 11:00 pm

    Bobby; my sentiments are exactly along the lines of BBB and his 10:55 post.

    Also, I used to be stationed in Everett and Seattle lived up to its “protest capital of the World” reputation. They can go to hell for all I care.

  468. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 11:00 pm

    Jennifer,

    I wish Ichiro would lose a step. It seems like he’s the Energizer bunny.

  469. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 11:00 pm

    First pitch 11:05 (Suzyn Waldman).
    Can anyone check if its a record the 4 hour rain delay? thanks in advance.

  473. have you seen the rain August 24th, 2007 at 11:03 pm

    baseball blows, especially at 11:00 pm and when the Sox and Mariners have won.

    Let’s play ball!!!

  475. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 11:03 pm

    Haha Mel, I have noticed the bat pointing thing! I don’t know if that’s mechanical or just him being a little punk, but given everything else I’ve seen and heard of him I’ma assume the latter…

    Know what really pissed me off earlier this season is the A’s-M’s brawl wherein Joe Blanton shoved Ichiro. Then not only did Ichiro run away like a little pansy, leaving his teammates to defend his honor, but he actually laughed at them later for getting riled up enough to fight! He is the dictionary definition of a lil beyatch.

  476. Tom August 24th, 2007 at 11:04 pm

    Jason –

    I think you are 100% correct. MLB did not want a DH tomorrow; Detroit wouldn’t have been able to do a split DH on Sunday because of ESPN; and Monday is “Getaway Day”…and the Yankees probably had no interest in a DH the day before the Red Sox come to town (even though it really wasn’t the Yankees’ call….but I bet Detroit wasn’t looking forward to a DH on getaway day either).

  477. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:04 pm

    anybody know if Mr Belvedere Season 3 is out on DVD yet? that Wesley!!

    Id imagine the strike zone is gonna be lose tonight, Imagine if this went to extra innings?

  483. Ben August 24th, 2007 at 11:08 pm

    Hey, a single (error?) to start it off.

    Leadoff runner on.

    If I’m staying up, this may as well be worth it for me.

    GO YANKEES

    Can we be sure old man Clemens can stay awake long enough for 4-5 innings?

  490. Ben August 24th, 2007 at 11:10 pm

    WOW!

    Could that have worked out any better?!!

    And an end to Polanco’s streak

  491. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:10 pm

    go NYR, ill give you that… i think maybe it was the indians announcers i was thinking of.

  492. YankeeJosh August 24th, 2007 at 11:10 pm

    A day night/doubleheader tomorrow couldn’t start at 4 PM. Detroit would have had to do a Noon/1 PM start and keep the night game at 7 or 8. Fox’s Window is 3:30-7. No overlap, and you could get local TV. This game should have been postponed.

    Good break for the Yankees because a double header would have really messed the rotation up.

  493. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 11:11 pm

    Let’s put them in the hole early! Come on Jeter!

  494. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:11 pm

    lets get to miller early… they may want to limit his pitch count anyway with this being his first start since coming back

  495. Dr. Acula August 24th, 2007 at 11:11 pm

    I wonder what’s the latest start time for a game?

  496. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:12 pm

    this just in… JJ Putz am good.

  497. Stef August 24th, 2007 at 11:12 pm

    Go NYR — I agree. I couldn’t stomach the LAA announcers. Finally turned off the sound entirely.

  498. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 11:12 pm

    And they couldn’t do it Sunday because of the espn window.

  499. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 11:12 pm

    Jeter should have hit into his 21st DP of the season. give me a break

  500. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 11:13 pm

    These guys are definitely not sharp after a >3 hour rain delay…. was worried about the DP there.

    Oh god, everyone hear that heckler. Someone stuff a sock in in mouth.

  502. 89 August 24th, 2007 at 11:13 pm

    Can Jeter take a break from batting with runners on in the first inning for a day or two haha… pop it up even… no more grounders.

  503. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:13 pm

    bases loaded comin right up…

  504. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 11:14 pm

    I think Detroit might have some of the best announcers around baseball

  516. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 11:16 pm

    Dam. we took ourselves out of that inning. We could have busted it open with all the errors.

  517. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 11:16 pm

    If Melky did not get his foot caught, he would be safe and we are calling that play brilliant.

  518. Andrea August 24th, 2007 at 11:16 pm

    UGH! I’m in stupid Albany, where I have JUST found out they have YES, but NO MY 9!!!!

  519. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:17 pm

    miller gets out of that with just 16 pitches… gotta get him out after 4 or 5 and run their bullpen into the ground.

  520. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 11:17 pm

    Now this is totally a must win. Seattle won, Soxs won.

  521. mel August 24th, 2007 at 11:17 pm

    If Cano can’t play well in day games, then conversely can he play well in midnight games?

  522. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 11:17 pm

    Dissapointing, but the runs will come, I’m sure. I’m more interested in seeing how well Clemens throws the ball after the long rain delay.

    That’s the real decider on whether we’ll have a good chance in this game.

  523. Michael August 24th, 2007 at 11:17 pm

    2 on, one out, Arod at bat, rookie pitcher in trouble, Arod at the plate, bets defensive catcher of all time behind the plate…

    Send the Runners!

  524. BBB August 24th, 2007 at 11:17 pm

    yeah that blew…

  525. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:18 pm

    only 3 pitches but clemens is hitting his spots. good news.

    Let’s go Raja!

  528. jennifer August 24th, 2007 at 11:19 pm

    Way to jinx us Michael.

  529. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 11:19 pm

    Andrea: sorry to hear that, but I never had any trouble getting Yankees games while I stayed in Schenectady/Niskayuna. That’s pretty close to Albany (20 min w/o traffic). Are you SURE there aren’t any channels?

  530. Michael August 24th, 2007 at 11:20 pm

    The he should be aiming for different spots Boston Dave.

    Does anyone remember that site that someone mentioned a little while ago to watch games? I dont’ remember at all what someone was talking about….I know, I’m no help.

    Maybe I’m glad I can’t watch the game….the bartender at the bar is a big Yankee fan, but Albany is a big Boston fan region.

  554. DW August 24th, 2007 at 11:25 pm

    I’ve already muted the game, especially since I’m watching on local (Detroit) TV. I wonder how empty the upper decks are.

    One good thing is that since the Yankees just came from Anaheim, they probably won’t be as tired as the Tigers, who have been playing at home all week.

  555. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 11:25 pm

  556. bill August 24th, 2007 at 11:26 pm

    what did i tell you?

    ballgame over. the yanks starting pitching is poor compared to boston and seattle.

  557. 'Could be 3 GB of Seattle August 24th, 2007 at 11:26 pm

    Of all the STUPID moves.

    Your leadoff hitter gets a gift basehit, your #2 batter reaches on an E4 which hasn’t been committed by the 2B in well over 100 games, Jeter is stuck in his recent g.i.d.p. woes, your 2007 A.L.M.V.P. A-Rod is up AND YOU TRY A DOUBLE-STEAL? With an officially heavy Cabrera who needs to lose some weight and learn how to slide. Man out at 3B, 2 outs. Ridiculous.

    I’m so disgusted with this team, I shut off the t.v. already, but I’ll still listen to the game.

    If the Yanks lose this game, this will have been the inning that cost them.

    I have never seen such a mentally unprepared Yankees team.
    Maybe they ought to go 3-7 in their next 10 including tonight, Seattle goes 6-4 including their yet another win tonight then takes just game from the Yanks and the Yanks can call it a season, if they’re gonna play like they already have tonight, cuz it’s over if this happens (4-9). It’s early but it’s getting late.

  558. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 11:26 pm

  569. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:29 pm

    i cant defend the double steal attempt… but last time i checked, the yanks can score runs. no need to worry yet. stay close, let joba bring it and win a close one.

  570. Brandon August 24th, 2007 at 11:30 pm

    com’on guys lets not make this a 123 inning

  571. Go NYR August 24th, 2007 at 11:30 pm

    OK, lets say they dont do the double steal, If Alex hits the same ball its DP, so if Melk was safe it would have kept us out of the DP and gotten us a run

    Shame on you Brian Cashman.

  576. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:31 pm

    NYR – perhaps… doesnt make it a good idea to try it in that situation. they really need to get miller out and get into that bullpen during the first game of a 4 game series. thats what the yanks do best.

  577. Brandon August 24th, 2007 at 11:32 pm

  578. Michael August 24th, 2007 at 11:32 pm

    It’s a sorry state of affairs but there are plenty of people who want to see him nose-dive just to get him out of the lineup and replace him with Betemit (even though it’s insane).

    The same applies to Moose and Kennedy.

    Jennifer

    Cabrera’s foot getting “caught in the dirt” is the lamest excuse I’ve ever heard for a slide. You’re blaming Detroit’s groundskeepers for the dirt, but did you blame them for the bounce on the r.o.e. Cabrera got? The slowness of the infield on Damon’s infield single? Cabrera slid too early and came down too hard which decreases forward motion. A slide should be a fluid motion and one where it takes out the baseman or gets as close to taking out the baseman as possible. His slide was a textbook on how not to slide. He was afraid to take out the baseman. He could’ve slide head first as well (hands are harder to tag than feet or legs) cuz the catcher is throwing behind the righthanded batter so his throw has to be outside the 3B line.

    I’ll assume you’re taking about this Morgan Pressel guy as far as calling people idiots.

    You don’t attempt a double-steal with A-Rod up EVER. At least it’s 2-1 now but it could’ve been 2-2 or 3-2 Yanks or better if not for that ridiculous double-steal attempt.

  619. Michael August 24th, 2007 at 11:46 pm

    Clemens looked strong there, aided by Tigers hacking away n 2-0 at sliders a foot off the plate despite the tight zone.

  620. Terry August 24th, 2007 at 11:46 pm

    Good inning for Clemens, an important one at that since the Yankees just scored. It demonstrates that he’s feeling fine and that the 1st didn’t portend of things to some.

  621. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:46 pm

    1) sex
    2) get wasted with the boys
    3) a Yankee win

    One, alas, doesn’t apply. As for two, I have to write a legal brief tomorrow. And three, well, like I said one and two don’t apply.

  629. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 11:49 pm

    Terry,

    I know there are some who root against him. But he always gives everything he has and it’s great to see him contribute. I support Andy just like I do every other Yankee. He catches some flak from people for not being a big-time power hitting first baseman. His glovework and his effort make up for it. It’s good to see him doing well after the off-field trouble earlier this year, with his mother’s accident.

    Louis… are you serious? you could say the same thing about Daisuke. its tough to measure a pitcher by wins. his ERA is respectable and he adds a presence to the team. wait until after the season to measure him.

  634. 89 August 24th, 2007 at 11:51 pm

    Clemens, although grossly overpaid provides stability heart and consistency so the Yankee rotation… for real, where would the Yankees be right now without him, despite the stats only saying 5 wins?

    distant second place in the East, and god knows where in the wild card — i think that is an absolutely unquestionable fact.

  635. mel August 24th, 2007 at 11:52 pm

    Melky’s such a good teammate. Taking away the double play opportunity from the captain.

  636. Iron Horse August 24th, 2007 at 11:52 pm

    Clemens was only not worth it if you compare him to what else was available to the Yanks as a starter. Besides, I’ll put him in front of Moose any day – even at 45 yrs old. Besides, it’s not your money.

  637. Michael August 24th, 2007 at 11:52 pm

    Freaking DPS from the 2-hole ar my gripe o the week. A half dozen baserunners already and only 1 run.

  638. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:52 pm

    p.s. take away that one horrific start against chicago and his ERA would be very good.

  639. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 11:52 pm

    Okay! Jeet with the walk, let’s go A-Rod!!

  640. SJ44 August 24th, 2007 at 11:52 pm

    They may have to consider using the bunt more when the leadoff guy reaches. The DP’s are really beginning to pile up the last 10 days.

    I think I would either hit and run or bunt to try to stay out the DP’s. Can’t just keep hacking.

  641. Iron Horse August 24th, 2007 at 11:53 pm

    I don’t like Kay, but the discussion he and Leiter had last inning re: Gator teaching Moose a slider was not half-bad. Interesting stuff.

    Andy Phillips 8-14 hot streak only made his OPS go up 20 points. Pathetic. If he hit something other than singles he’d be useful, but he doesn’t.

  660. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:55 pm

    pressel, you gonna pack it in or do you want to stick around and watch the yanks put on another whoopin?

  661. Iron Horse August 24th, 2007 at 11:56 pm

    Is it just me, or is this Miller guy actually getting taller with each passing inning? He’s up to 7’2″ now I think.

  662. Will August 24th, 2007 at 11:56 pm

    Love when Alex goes opposite field – looks so effortless.
    Maggs – 1, Arod – 1

  663. 89 August 24th, 2007 at 11:56 pm

    Can Morgan Pressel be banned?

    Like, I am all for different opinions and different fans… but in a constructive and conversational way.

    This whiny Red Sox gig has just gotta go…

    MP – You just had two blowouts by your own team to watch, go do something with yourself.

  664. Michael August 24th, 2007 at 11:56 pm

    Leiter is strong. Did anyone catch John Franco trying to do color on ESPN radio a couple of years ago? Made Bret Boone look like Vin Scully.

  665. Kill Schill-(ing) August 24th, 2007 at 11:56 pm

    Who is Morgan Pretzel? And why is he posting on this blog? Don’t the Red Sox outlets have interactive blogs or are their fans too illiterate to read them?

  666. Boston Dave August 24th, 2007 at 11:57 pm

    Bologma… leave Phillips alone. he’s not Albert Pujols. get over it. he’s doing as good or better than anyone expected.

  667. J-Dawg August 24th, 2007 at 11:57 pm

    Morgan’s gotta go to bed and get enough rest to catch her tee time tomorrow.

  668. Iron Horse August 24th, 2007 at 11:57 pm

    I love it – 2 out dinger and Jorge is making Miller work. By the time he gets out of this inning he’ll be 8 feet tall

  669. Iron Horse August 24th, 2007 at 11:58 pm

    With the 4-hour delay A-Rod is pissed. He’s usually getting lap dances at this hour.

  670. Bologma! August 24th, 2007 at 11:59 pm

    He’s garbage. He should be on the bench.

  671. 89 August 24th, 2007 at 11:59 pm

    hahaha well said Iron Horse

  672. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Well, that “gutless” team just took the lead.

    Isn’t it past the bedtime for some of these kiddies?

  673. Joe August 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Morgan Pressel (the golfer, not the poster) is pretty cute.

  674. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    despite the double plays and caught stealing…. 58 pitches for miller. they can get him out after 5 and go to town on the tired detroit pen.

  675. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:01 am

    Lap dances in the rust belt is buyer beware.

  676. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:01 am

    Clemens vs Maybin…. Round 2

  677. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:01 am

    Natalie Gulbis is even cuter though.

  678. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:02 am

    This kid hit his first career HR off Clemens last week – later in the game Clemens stung him on the hands. Now he has walked with no outs…

  679. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:03 am

    Good one Michael.

  680. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:03 am

    dang, id almost rather see maybin rip a double than walk him to lead off the inning. cant do that.

  681. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:03 am

    I’m thinking the RH power of Alex + the LH power of Betemit = me drooling day after day

  682. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:03 am

    But they work hard for the money Iron Horse. Do you have a hawg?

  683. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 12:04 am

    _Lap dances in the rust belt is buyer beware._

    there’s good and bad everywhere

  684. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:04 am

    it looks like there are still a fair number of fans that stuck around… gotta give them credit. hopefully it wont be worth their while.

  685. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:05 am

    I don’t love throwing over to 1st a million times, but I have to say that I am happy Clemens did it last week and is doing it again today – at least to TRY to keep runners on. Other than Pettitte, no one holds anyone for us. Pena should be handing out “go to second free” cards. As I type, Maybin steals, has enough time to stand, put his gloves in his pockets, and do a lap dance for A-Rod by the time Posada’s throw gets there.

  686. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:07 am

    DO I have a Hawg?!?!?!? Know your history yankee fan!

  687. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:07 am

    Pesky stolen bases! I thought that we were finished with the Angels.

  688. mel August 25th, 2007 at 12:07 am

    1st stolen base off Clemens. Jeez, bet that kid irritates Clemens by now.

  689. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:07 am

    Iron Horse and Boston Dave: I like Al too (and MK). A perfect example of how well-respected Al is in baseball is when he wouldn’t go along with the media’s bogus “gyro-ball” story concerning Dice-K. He really poured cold-water on a few journalists there and got some appreciation from the Boston clubhouse (who really got tired of teaching journalists different grips for the same type of pitch (slider).

  690. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:08 am

    It feels like it’s been an hour since we recorded an out.

  691. Joe August 25th, 2007 at 12:08 am

    Micheal Kay said that Jim Leyland refused to come on his radio show for an interview.

    The other day, Kay said that he prefers Beirut to Detroit, and Leyland took offense.

  692. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:08 am

    Actually, I think it was the “hard slider” aka cutter.

  693. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:09 am

    If only we could have Al Leiter and Girardi do every game. I can stand MK but he does get annoying at times.

  694. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:09 am

    Damnit – just hit Granderson and go for the DP

  695. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:09 am

    Iron Horse-

    Go you that Iron Horse. Harleys are also called Iron Horse-but probably after LOu.

  696. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:10 am

    Matsui-San sleeps in LF

  697. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:10 am

    Does anyone else think that after a 4 hour rain delay and A-Rod in the on deck circle, you gotta at least THINK about having Jeter bunt those runners over to 2nd and 3rd and force Leyland’s hand ?

  698. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:10 am

    fricken granderson.

  699. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:10 am

    Too late…triple and RBI. F&%K!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  700. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:11 am

    Come on Roger ! Bear down !

  701. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 12:11 am

    32 Doubles, 16 Home Runs, 20 Triples.

    That’s insane.

    Highly underrated Granderson is.

  702. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:11 am

    Giving runs back, I didn’t think Mussina was scheduled to pitch until Monday.

  703. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:11 am

    there goes the lead… and clemens pitch count. gotta get out of this quickly.

  704. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:12 am

    HAD to give both those runs RIGHT back, huh ? FUDGE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  705. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:12 am

    pitch AROUND mags

  706. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:12 am

    Perhaps with Jeter Torre gives more leeway and lets him decide. THANK YOU FOR SWINGING AT HTE FIRST PITCH THAMES! Pop out, 2 out…finally!

  707. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:13 am

    just ignore pressel please.

  708. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:13 am

    Looks like they had a play at third, but Jeter wasn’t preparing to throw to third. Missed communication? It’s Cano’s job to tell Jeter that Granderson is headed for third.

  709. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:13 am

    good thing we are facing “MEAT” for the other team as the Yankees should continue to batter that bum….I can only hope Roger settles down and we don’t have to burn the arms in the bullpen tonight…..Let’s Go, Yankees !!!

  710. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:13 am

    nice pitch on the outside corner there. detroit gun had it at 93 too.

  711. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:14 am

    Good effort Duncan…single for Ordonez

  712. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:14 am

    if only duncan could have grabbed that…..

  713. 89 August 25th, 2007 at 12:14 am

    Guys…

    That is the first time I have seen a Yankee OF dive for a ball this year face first…

    I love Shelley.

  714. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:15 am

    no way abreu even dives for that ball so nothing you can do…. thanks carlos for another first pitch swing. phew.

  715. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 12:15 am

    The walks, especially to #9 hitters, have killed this team all season.

    It is amazing how much difficulty this team has had getting out against #9 hitters this year.

    The point of emphasis this off-season for the Yankees has to be strikethrowing. Their starters have a really tough time (with the exception of Pettitte) of throwing strikes on a consistent basis.

    No reason to walk Maybin and that cost them the lead.

    Not been a good two weeks (with the exception of Pettitte) for Yankee starters.

    Short outings, too many walks, back to giving up runs the half inning after they score.

    If they don’t make the playoffs this year, it won’t be because of offense. It will be because their pitching just isn’t good enough.

    Looks like another night they need to score 10 to win. Let’s hope the O can do it.

  716. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:15 am

    Shelley was able to sucker Ordonez in. Next time, Shelley will snag that ball. Shelley knows what he’s doing.

  717. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:16 am

    If we don’t scare the bulk of the idiot nation, why is it after they totally took care of business on their end and snatched 2 from ChiSox that we ALWAYS have a rep over here showing his @$$ ? Do you think that they are trolling over at the Blue Jays blogs too ? Wicked funny that is….wicked, wicked funny !

  718. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:16 am

    89… ditto… though melky does lay out on occasion

  719. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 12:16 am

    Nice try by Duncan. Should have had it though. Saved a double at least. Bet Abreu doesn’t get that ball.

  720. Joe August 25th, 2007 at 12:17 am

    I have yoga class in the morning. This “west coast” starting time is throwing a wrench into my plans.

  721. mel August 25th, 2007 at 12:18 am

    I hate to say this, but Shelley makes Bobby look girly out in right field.

  722. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:18 am

    58 pitches through only 3 innings for both pitchers tonight…Age vs. youth after a 4 hour rain delay…THIS would be a nice one to pull off. Let’s wake up the bats again and give Roger another cushion. ( THIS time to maintain, Rocket ! You can do it ! )

  723. kasey August 25th, 2007 at 12:18 am

    don’t know what anyone expected from clemens tonight. dude’s closing in on 50 and it’s past midnight. he’s had his metamucil and been in bed for an hour at this time most nights.

    it’s not like the pitching has been exceptional at any point this season. you know what you’re getting. this staff isn’t great. some nights, they’re pretty good. others, they’re good enough.

    pitching wins titles. the yankees don’t have it. move on.

  724. Kill Schill-(ing) August 25th, 2007 at 12:19 am

    make this guy work. He doesn’t look sharp. Make him pay for the leadoff walk.

  725. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:19 am

    love it…. bullpen activity already

  726. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:20 am

    Clemens is teh suck.??? LMFAO !!!

  727. Adam B August 25th, 2007 at 12:20 am

    Don Vito: speaking as a Sox fan, I can say that the way the Yanks have been playing (significant stretches of near-.700 ball) is plenty scary, especially combined with the recent history of what has happened in the late stages of the past few seasons.

  728. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:22 am

    it is WAY past some of our bedtimes now….us Adults will weather the storm and the kiddies will fall away…It’s gonna be a nice win tonight for us !

  729. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:22 am

    lets go andy… at least see some pitches

  730. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:22 am

    Cano looked bad on that – looked like a slider.

  731. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 12:23 am

    detroit is fighting for their life.

    ringing the pen with a one run lead is desperate. though, not as desperate as cano’s last swing.. wTF?

  732. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:23 am

    ill settle for the opposite field blooper

  733. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:23 am

    com’on King of Bloop

  734. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:24 am

    Acula, Cano doesnt have the best plate discipline. If he did… hello .400

  735. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:25 am

    clemens better start getting that high and inside pitch that K’d Andy. nice job shelley.

  736. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:25 am

    Shelley’s going to get the runs back right here.

  737. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:26 am

    OK SJ44, since you feel vindicated every time AP bloops a single do we who think he sucks get to draw conclusions based on that backward K?

  738. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 12:26 am

    Yankees are 28-8 when A-Rod homers.

    Barring a massive jinx by me I think this game is in the bag baby!

  739. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:26 am

    strike 2 to damon was outside. i hate when umps are inconsistent. pinching them at first, now its all over the place.

  740. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:26 am

    Newsflash: No one has dominating starting pitching this year. That’s what is making all the races so up in the air. If Schilling’s performance tonight indicates what he’ll do from here on out, the Sox starting rotation will be very tough, but that’s a big if for the old man. Also, Tavarez blows and Wakefield is totally hit or miss…literally. If we’re in a series with the Sox top 4 and the Yanks’ top 4, I am just fine with that. I think Sox will have a slilght edge, but not much more than that.

  741. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:27 am

    Andy Phillips career .550 OPS against lefties. Worse than Miguel Cairo.

    Now we have Damon instead of Giambi. Good job moron Joe Torre.

  742. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:27 am

    Michael, that backward K was a ball. and what are your expectations for Phillips? .340?

  743. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:28 am

    Damon is a PEST.

    I LOVE it!

  744. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:28 am

    huh ? ^^^

  745. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:28 am

    bolgoma… damon being 2-2 isnt good enough for you? moron

  746. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:28 am

    clemens does not get a mill an outing but what the heck continue to be delusional he will make $18 mill.. he will have about 23 starts…..

    Yeah I like DUncan he plays really hard and is not a bad player.. more capable then you think he would be kinda a DH type.

    great AB Damon whatever happens get into middle relief…

  747. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:28 am

    Go I used to hate when Damon had these awkward foul off abats when he was with Boston…happy to see it now. Cmon Damon!

  748. Joe August 25th, 2007 at 12:28 am

    Pettitte, Wang, Clemens, and Hughes (while not fantastic) is good enough to catch Seattle.

    Once you’re in the playoffs, anything can happen. Look at last year. In addition, sometimes luck goes in cycles. After a few bad postseasons, the playoff gods may actually smile on the Yankees this year.

  749. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 12:29 am

    If Damon is good at anything it’s making the pitcher work.
    10 pitches so far, good AB.

  750. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:29 am

    My expectations for Phillips are what he does. An awful hiter with no power who occassionally finds a nut al the blind squirrel. A team with $200 million to spend and Championship aspirations should, no must do better. Giambi, Betemit, Phelps, random replacement player anything (but Minky),

  751. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:30 am

    Johnny, that pitch landed in my basement.

  752. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:30 am

    com’on Johnny he throws across his body no way that is a strike

  753. mel August 25th, 2007 at 12:30 am

    Nice battle, Johnny. Let’s go Roger.

  754. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:31 am

    At least Miller is up over 80 pitches. I think 30 of them came in Damon’s at-bat.

  755. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:31 am

    Boston Dave, you ignore the fact that Giambi has been 150% of the player that Damon has been for his entire career. You are the moron.

  756. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:31 am

    michael…ok so who would you have signed at 1B this offseason? phillips is hitting .293 and plays above avg defense. are you serious? that is terrible?

  757. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:32 am

    What the hell is wrong with you people tonight?

  758. Jennie Finch August 25th, 2007 at 12:32 am

    The crappy old Rocket is due to give up about 2 more this inning. Enjoy!

  759. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:33 am

    Well, we are guaranteed to see the middle relief by the 6th. I never get tired of seeing Damon’s double-digit pitch ABs no matter what the end-result. It ticks off the pitchers and it ticks off the fielders (it can also tick off the baserunners especially on 3-2 counts and 2 outs).

    I only hope Roger has a good inning here so that the Tiggers don’t see our middle relief too.

  760. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:33 am

    9th inning… the jays are making it interesting at least. KRod in another pickle.

  761. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 12:34 am

    Hey Bolome, why don’t you put a sock in it.
    We got the point you don’t like Phillips. It’s gotten old fast. Give the rest of us a break already.

  762. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:34 am

    cmon roger. that is not good.

  763. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:35 am

    Wow Boston Dave is the kind of guy that uses batting average to determine a players value. What a dummy.

    Dave does it occur to you that there are other things like slugging and obp?

  764. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:36 am

    3 leadoff walk in a inning for roger 2 in a row..

    Ivan Rodriguez now has 6 walks

    it is hard to walk him that is how bad that pitch was….

  765. Kill Schill-(ing) August 25th, 2007 at 12:36 am

    angels just won, damn.

  766. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:36 am

    that was 3 leadoff walks in over 75 innings..

  767. Joe August 25th, 2007 at 12:36 am

    Hey Ha!

    At least say it the right way. It’s not George’s box, it’s George’s baaaawx.

  768. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:37 am

    good the angels won that will incent them to beat seattle they play 7 times……

  769. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:37 am

    Spread the news! Michael Kay records the shaven-ness of Roger’s beard in his diary!!!111!1

  770. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 12:38 am

    as opposed to geoooges booowx

  771. Kill Schill-(ing) August 25th, 2007 at 12:38 am

    clemens can’t get that slider or that split over consistently.

  772. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:39 am

    cano half the time plays like a moron.. he swings at garbage and just seems punchy some times…

  773. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:39 am

    Boston Dave-

    I am not the General Manager. But in this age of Enlightment, can we dispense with pointing to a .293 BA as a sign that a player is NOT terrible. No power, no walks, no speed, plays a position with little defensive value. He is an out machine who puts up well below average offense as a first baseman in the AL East. To answer your question seriously, any one else, except Minky. Jack Cust was avilable. Is Roberto Petegine still alive? Julio Franco was just cut and he couldn’t be any worse. Last tme I checked we had options on this very team.

  774. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:39 am

    Bologma, i’ll dumb this down so you can understand it. The yankees are getting what they expected, and hoped for, from phillips. when you have other hitters, many of them all-stars, you can afford to have guys who hit close to .300 and play good defense. you can go play nintendo and sign shea hillenbrand and all the other fabulous free agents at 1B. I’ll stick with what’s been working for the Yankees over the past month.

  775. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 12:40 am

    The walks are just piling up with Yankee starters again. This entire roadtrip has been filled with walks and bad counts.

    Leadoff walk to a guy who doesn’t walk, followed by the usual stolen base (all walks are doubles against the Yankees) and now he walks a guy who is 0 for his last 12.

    Brutal starting pitching on this roadtrip, with the exception of Pettitte thus far. Somebody other than Andy has to step up and pitch.

  776. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:41 am

    we are still discussing 1b??

    newsflash the Yanks lead baseball in runs scored, argue over pitching…

    the reason they are where they are is on the mound.

  777. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:42 am

    cano blew a dp…

    cano is up and down fielding…the ump in the way..

  778. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 12:42 am

    come on granderson!

  779. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:42 am

    cano…….get your head on for crying out loud

  780. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:42 am

    com’on Roger battle :( stop opening the right shoulder

  781. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:43 am

    Roger getting frustrated that Cano didnt turn 2 on a scorched one-hopper that almost took his head off.

  782. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:43 am

    Dave, that is the dumbest line of reasoning ever. You don’t sacrifice offense for defense at the lowest position on the defensive spectrum. For someone who spend this much time commenting on a baseball blog you’re terrible.

  783. Jennie Finch August 25th, 2007 at 12:43 am

    Cano…lol!! He’s really fired up about the playoff race!

  784. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:43 am

    The Yankees could put Giambi at 1B but after last year’s issues, 2 groundball pitchers, they decided that defense actually does matter. i could be wrong but i am guessing that they didnt sign Mientkiewicz for his bat. You have still yet to give me a single, viable option that the Yankees passed on at 1B. Further, the Yankees have been playing well and are scoring more runs that anyone in MLB. I think they can afford to sacrifice for better D at 1b.

  785. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:43 am

    Cano is really an enigma at times.

  786. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:43 am

    Alvin the damn ump blocked him from seeing it and he still stopped it w/ a speedy runner

  787. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:44 am

  788. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 12:44 am

    YEAHHHHHYEEEEE

  789. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 12:44 am

    nice. 2 out hits are quality

  790. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 12:45 am

    jennie finch called it!

  791. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:45 am

    Betemit should be playing first. You are stupid.

  792. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 12:45 am

    That’s 21 Triples, 32 Doubles, and 16 Home Runs for Granderson.

    That is one heck of a season for a Center Fielder.

    Top 5 Center Fielder.

  793. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 12:45 am

    There’s something I don’t really get. I know Clemens has an intense workout schedule and he’s a great athlete but I don’t know if he’s in “tremendous shape”. These broadcasters make him sound like he has a wrestler’s body.

  794. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:45 am

    Yanks are not thrilled with their 1B situation and haven’t been for a couple years. AP is doing excellent defensively and, within this lineup, is serviceable. In case anyone hasn’t noticed, strong-hitting 1b in the entire AL is much scarcer than it has been for years – especially now with Texeira in the NL.

    Damn, more runs. Memo to A-Rod: just hit a couple more, could you? With men on base please?

  795. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:46 am

    The ump blocking him doesn’t matter though; he made the mistake after it was in this glove. That’s the 3rd time in as many games that Cano has made a mistake AFTER the ball is in the glove.

  796. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:46 am

    Let’s get these other runs back, too!!

  797. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:46 am

    bologma, you’re right. cashman doesnt know what he is doing. clearly you should be leading an MLB team. I am sure you can lure Josh Phelps and Shea Hillenbrand and start a dynasty.

  798. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:47 am

    6-3 with Melky, Jeter and Arod coming up; it’s definitely doable even if we don’t score this inning, but the Yankees pitching have to hold them somehow.

  799. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:47 am

    OK I am done complaining about 1B. This is a brutal pitching performance against a team that cant beat anybody or score any runs since the All Star break. And they don’t even have Sheffield. This Buds for you Roger. What a stinker when we needed only a decent start. I just hope he doesnt get a fielder killed. (But I also think we”ll get at least six runs and are still in this thing if someone can put up some zeros).

  800. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:47 am

    that DP, ump in the way screw up cost 2 damn runs…why the hell do the umps stand there so they can call willie bloomquist safe at 2nd when he is out by 6 feet????

    this game will be decided in the pen, no big suprise…

    granderson 2 triples and a double, what a joke….the guy was in a huge slump before the game…

    Yeah scholars let’s discuss LF offensive productivity????Or maybe 3B productivity.. the yanks will score 930+ runs this yr. they can score with me a 1B..

  801. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:48 am

    and now it’s 6-3 instead of 4-3 in many parts thanks to cano.

  802. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:48 am

  803. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:49 am

    Dave, I’ll except that as your concession speech.

    Let me ask this; did you think Phillips should have been playing 1st when Joe had Cairo starting instead?

  804. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 12:49 am

    Walks kill them again. The entire roadtrip has been filled with walks to awful hitters.

    Just go to the bullpen and move on.

    Another awful performance from a Yankee starter. They are starting to pile up now. Four of the five Yankee starters are now liabilities. Not good.

    Can’t walk Pudge, Maybin (earlier in the game) and Inge. That’s just giving the game away.

    The Angels series was filled with walks, which lead to them blowing that series.

    With the exception of Pettitte, looks like we are back to the April/May pitching staff. 4 inning putrid starts filled with walks, #9 hitters owning them, and having to dig out huge holes on a nightly basis.

    They may have to go back to 13 pitchers and realize these starters can’t pitch deep into games. By going to 13 pitchers, you can get them out of the game earlier when they become petrified of the strikezone.

    Go to Ramirez in the 5th and hope he can eat innings. All you can do now.

  805. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 12:49 am

    bring in joba….oh thats right he might get his skirt wet!

  806. 89 August 25th, 2007 at 12:50 am

    Alex…save us again.

  807. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:50 am

    I REFUSE to believe that it’s gonna be Andrew Flippin’ Miller that is gonna put us 6.5 back of Boston….It is NOT going to happen….This kid is living on borrowed time and is about to get LIT UP HUGE !

  808. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:50 am

    lol miller is learning from the Rocket himself…first pitch walks for the win!

  809. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:51 am

    Bologma, I’ll accept (not except) that as your unknowing admission that you have no idea what you’re talking about.

  810. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:51 am

    Another walk for Jeet. Come on A-Rod, do the same thing you did the other time!

  811. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:52 am

    Dave answer the question

  812. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:52 am

    SJ, you might be right. wang should figure it out at least.

  813. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:53 am

    time for a Jip, Jip !!!

  814. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:53 am

    I think the reason we are complaing about Andy Phillips is that there are simple otions to keep his futility out of the line-up. As far as the starting pitching, er not so much…

  815. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:53 am

    That’ll work too! Come on Jorge!!

  816. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:53 am

    Bologma, I got lost in your failed attempt to effectively ask a question. I’ve noticed it’s a trend with you. You might have to repeat it.

  817. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 12:54 am

    gaaaah…nothing more annoying than to tune back in only to find out we have more hits than the other team but aren’t winning!!

    This one is still within reach easily though! How many pitches has Miller thrown – please say 100! :)

  818. 89 August 25th, 2007 at 12:55 am

    My grandmother could have gotten a triple out of this… are you kidding me?!

  819. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:55 am

    6-5 YANKEES!!!!!! Hip Hip Hip

    JJJOOOORRRRGGGEEEEE!!

  820. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 12:55 am

    6-5.

    Take that Naysayers!

  821. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:55 am

    JIP, FLIPPIN’ JIP !!!

  822. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 12:55 am

    HIP HIP !!!

  823. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 12:55 am

    HIP HIP…..JORGE!!!!!!!!!!

  824. Kill Schill-(ing) August 25th, 2007 at 12:56 am

    what the hell was Jorge doing? why wasn’t he running?

  825. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:56 am

    All right!! Come on Hideki!!!

  826. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:56 am

    Welcome to the ” our pitcher’s s*cks worse than YOUR pitcher contest “…..in THIS corner….

  827. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 12:56 am

    Kay and Leiter are rightfully ripping Posada for walking to 2nd. WHAT THE HELLLLLL???? That is very not Posada like. Who does he think he is, Manny freaking Ramirez??!?!?!!??!?!

  828. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:56 am

    Who would have thunk it? The Yanks can score runs. All is not lost.

  829. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 12:56 am

    Why aint Posada at third. Crap is he the slowest freakin catcher in the game?

  830. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 12:56 am

    again I say the same things over and over, jorge does not know how to run the bases…terrible he should be on 3rd base..

    terrible…..

    he has done that over and over.. he either runs to 2nd when he shouldn’t or does this crap…

    again how can a catcher have no baserunning instincts not speed just smarts????

  831. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 12:57 am

    Dang….they couldn’t leave that kid in to finish the inning ? WHERE IS THE LOVE ???????

  832. Kill Schill-(ing) August 25th, 2007 at 12:57 am

    no excuse, love the guy, but he should be at 3rd right now. that’s huge mistake because now they can’t tie the score on an out.

  833. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:57 am

    Yeah Jorge should be at third. Some sloppy baseball (pitching, fielding, and running!) by both teams in this game.

  834. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 12:57 am

    Calm down guys.

    Posada being Posada.

  835. kasey August 25th, 2007 at 12:57 am

    the yankees are in the game, but if you think detroit’s done scoring, you’re out of your mind.

    clemens for MAYBE another inning, then who? bruney? edwar? joba can only go 2, max. this team just doesn’t have the pitching. they haven’t all year. this offense can slug with anyone, but the pitching is generally mediocre-to-awful with few exceptions.

    that’s the reality. figure it out and live with the results.

  836. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:57 am

    I have come to accept that Posada tripling would cause the universe to explode. I’ll take the 2RBI double… but you are right, he should be on 3rd.

  837. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 12:58 am

    Jorge has a look on his face like a 3rd-grader caught shooting spit-wads. Worst baserunner in baseball. But I’ll take the 2 runs since I had a sinkin feeling it woul dbe another crushing GIDP.

  838. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 12:58 am

    Man, Posada is slow. The ball got by a diving Raburn and rolled all the way to the wall but Posada only has a double.

  839. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 12:58 am

    Even in his younger days Posada was a terrible baserunner. Nothing has changed.

  840. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:58 am

    Wow, Jorge had a brain-fart there.

    Jorge isn’t used to hitting and running for triples but Granderson has had 2 triples in this game – and it’s not just because of his speed. The dimensions of this field are conducive to triples; it’s huge (420 in CF!)

  841. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 12:58 am

    Dave,

    Hits, I can live with. That’s baseball. Walks, I can’t. Can’t walk Pudge. Just can’t do it.

    You have him 0-2, you can’t walk him.

    The frustrating thing is, up until about a week ago, the starters seem to have gotten a handle on pitching ahead and curbing the walks.

    Now, its April/May again. With the exception of Andy, every guy is pitching in bad counts and walking the ballpark. Its killing them.

    They don’t need a lights out pitching staff. They need guys to manage the game. Put up early zeroes and allow the offense to get going.

    Every night, it seems they give up first inning runs. That has to change.

    A struggling team gets 6 in the first 4 innings of this game, half of them from walks? Can’t do it and make the playoffs. That has to improve.

    But, Jorge has put them back in the game. Now, we need a pitcher to step up and put up some zeroes, whomever that may be.

  842. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 12:59 am

    Dave, easy question for you-

    Who’s better; a guy with a 634 OPS or a guy with a 532 OPS?

  843. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 12:59 am

    anybody else think that many of the yanks fans just cant be happy? posada rips a 2 RBI double and there are more complaints than positive posts. he probably should be on 3rd but still… things will work out :)

  844. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 12:59 am

    Good, no harm no foul from Jorge.

  845. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 12:59 am

    No harm….what MK said, hehehe… way to go Matsui.

  846. E-ROC August 25th, 2007 at 12:59 am

    I see that a lot of people are staying up for this game. Anybody loaded up on caffeine?? LOL!

    Anyway, it looks like Roger is battling himself and the umpire. Hopefully, he can give us a scoreless fifth inning.

  847. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 1:00 am

    Matsui.

    This man is as clutch as they come…and I hear he has an impressive porn collection too.

  848. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:00 am

    He should buy Matsui a bottle of Cristal for not hitting a deep fly ball there.

  849. Kill Schill-(ing) August 25th, 2007 at 1:00 am

    joe chewed his ass out. good.

  850. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:00 am

    Posada showing speed there… FLASH!

  851. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:00 am

    SJ, I def agree with you.

  852. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:00 am

    Matsui bails Posada out. Grumble.

    Cano grounds into what should have been DP – the Tigers defense is really sloppy tonight. 4-hour delay probably doesn’t help…

  853. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:01 am

    Remember what I said about 3:55 a.m.? We might be playing then!

  854. E-ROC August 25th, 2007 at 1:01 am

    Tie game!

  855. YankeeJosh August 25th, 2007 at 1:01 am

    OK, I’m gonna go out on a limb: Joba’s first MLB win comes tonight.

  856. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:01 am

    Alright 6-6. Now Roger needs to get his 45-year-old competitive Texas juices flowing and put up 2 more zeroes. Then Viz Joba Mo.

  857. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 1:01 am

    ofcourse MR. Intangibles :(

  858. E-ROC August 25th, 2007 at 1:02 am

    Did Phillips swing at the first pitch??!!

  859. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:02 am

    great patience by Cano.. he is in one of his classic no thinking zones..

    phillips good patience also, trying to hit a HR??you have 2 so I would rethink that.

    Torre better manage this game like it is a playoff game and use his pen, the good guys in the pen. Viz has not pitched in 3 days, mariano had a off day yesterday and Joba threw like 13 pitches 2 days ago.. then have a better pen then this team they have to win this game………

  860. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:02 am

    YankeeJosh, I second that.

  861. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:02 am

    jobas dress is pretty

  862. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 1:03 am

    Great start for Rocket: 1 pitch, 1 out. I’d like to see him pitch into the 6th.

  863. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:04 am

    Roger, hold them so Shelley can untie it.

  864. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:04 am

    I have to say Clemens is definitely off tonight control-wise. It doesn’t take rocket(no pun intended) science to see. As SJ said, and I’ll further emphasize, Pudge had 5 walks all year. So not even the Kyle Farnsworths of baseball have been walking him. He’s definitely off tonight. Maybe the layoff, maybe he’s just off. He’s lucky the offense is picking him up.

  865. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 1:05 am

    I wonder how many people have nodded off with their TV/computers on?

    we’re only half way done, and it’s 1:00 AM

  866. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 1:05 am

    None better than Matsui when it counts. Bailed out Posada that time.

  867. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:05 am

    and rocket gets mags… now we’re talking. one more roger.

  868. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:05 am

    Holy crud, Mag Ordonez hits .380 at Comerica. That’s INSANE!!!

    But luckily it just went down :D.

  869. Nick in SF August 25th, 2007 at 1:05 am

    Did anyone else’s DirecTV for this game conk out just now at the top of the hour?

  870. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:06 am

    Wow, where did this inning come from? One more guy please.

  871. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:06 am

    The Joba dress comment just keeps getting funnier! Whooo hooo!

    That is about as bad as Ordonze has probably looked all year. Nice job Roger.

    Clemens in the zone. The old age zone. I don’t care about what anyone says – I like having this guy on the team. I’m sure Sox fans are happier with Tavarez, the poster child for birth control that he is.

  872. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:06 am

    These MVP chants are making me sick. A-rod has 20 more homers than him. Is it even a race? Come on, people!

  873. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:06 am

    Been a rough roadtrip for Robbie so far. Awful defensively and back to hacking at everything.

    He has to relax and let his ability take over. Seems like he is trying to force it again.

  874. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 1:07 am

    E ROC: I’ve already eaten 2 big block Hersheys Chocolate bars and I’ve just opened up my 3rd.

    I’m bouncing off the walls right now. ;)

  875. Shdw August 25th, 2007 at 1:07 am

    Alvin:

    Figgins hits over .400 at Angel Stadium this season.

  876. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:07 am

    nothing better than scared Sox fans knocking a guy who is pitching better than anybody in baseball right now… gotta love it.

  877. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:07 am

    3-0, Shouldn’t have been prematurely optimistic.

  878. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 1:07 am

    JDawg, I think you’re right about Shelly tonight. He’s due to nail one.

  879. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 1:07 am

    am I just buzzed or is the amount of trolls here tonight really outta control?

    I agree Clemens’ control is off tonight, but remember he’s 45 and has pitched very well his past few starts…I wouldnt panic, it can easily be attributed to the long delay…

  880. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:08 am

    Yeah, Magglio’s nuts. He also isn’t trailing A-Rod in RBI’s by very much. I got him in my fantasy league in the 15th round. Definitely the best pick-up relatively speaking (I got A-Rod in the first).

  881. asburyboss August 25th, 2007 at 1:08 am

    Hey…what a coincidence I used to play in an american legion tournament at midnight at Palmer Field in Middletown!

    Long Live Niantic Legion and RIP Bill Jerome.

    Clemens has NO split tonight…it is hurting him badly

  882. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:08 am

    Did you see that??? Posada thought that was the third strike! I am serious. He started to walk off the field. Roger just looked at him like he is on crack. I think Posada bumped his head on something.

  883. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    saved the double?

  884. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    nice play andy hiccupps!

  885. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    Dimitri,

    It would be funny if A-Rod took his cap off and saluted the crowd during the MVP chants. No one can touch him in MVP consideration.

  886. Ben August 25th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    I was kind of hoping it would be a blow out on either side so I could go to bed.

    A tie game at 1:06 was not what I wanted.

    CLEMENS GET OUT OF THIS INNING

  887. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    thanks pudge.

  888. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    Mr. Intangibles is pissing me off a bit

  889. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    OK so now I will say it. Defesne at first is not all that important and even if it was, the AP appeasers talk like he’s Keith Hernandez. Which he ain’t.

  890. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    AP missed a play there but it didn’t cost Rocket much because Pudge got out on the very next pitch.

    Looking to take the air out of the Tiger sails right now against their vulnerable relief.

  891. NYY August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    The last thing we want is this game going into 15-16 extra innings.

  892. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    j-dawg that would be funny

  893. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    Dave, do you know what OPS is?

  894. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    “I wonder how many people have nodded off with their TV/computers on?

    In the immortal words of Jon Bon Jovi, I’ll sleep when I’m dead! ;) the booze maybe helping though…

  895. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    Nice job Rocket. Bring in chicken little and away we go!

  896. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    Im glad im in the west coast,cant immagine what you guys in the east coast are feeling. Lots of red bull I would guess.Hang in there guys we will win this thing before too long.

  897. I'm Robinson Cano August 25th, 2007 at 1:10 am

    I don’t hustle. I suck on defense. I swing at first pitches. I dance in the dugout. And I suck.

  898. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:11 am

    Add Jorgie to the list of guys whose heads are elsewhere tonight.

    That’s what 1 am eastern baseball does to you. Makes you a bit punchy! lol

  899. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:11 am

    i wonder if joba will get to unbutton his dress soon?

  900. NYY August 25th, 2007 at 1:11 am

    It should be Detroit Bullpen Vs Yanks Bullpen(minus Joba) for the next couple of innings.

  901. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:11 am

    It’s time for Shelley to untie this thing.

  902. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 1:12 am

    Shelly just tried to UNtie it right there.

  903. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:13 am

    Spot on Michael. Dave needs help learning about baseball. I’m sure he appreciates your insightful observations.

  904. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:14 am

    I agree with all of those statements except the last. Cano plays lazy ball but can’t say he sucks.

  905. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 1:14 am

    Maybe later J-Dawg.

  906. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 1:14 am

    hey baby, don’t bogart that bottle. wachya drinkin’ BBB ?

  907. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:14 am

    J-Dawg, I don’t know about that. The yankees have been screwed many times this season. It wouldn’t surprise me that much if A-rod gets robbed of a MVP title (Jeter last year).

  908. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:14 am

    Time for me to shut up and stop jinxing him.

  909. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:15 am

    Bologma, go find a plant and tell it all about your amazing, wonderful ideas. Then take your pills and go to bed. I’m watching the game and rooting for the Yankees to win. I’ve given up on trying to find reason in your feeble mind.

  910. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:16 am

    brutal k call

  911. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 1:16 am

    boy, damon’s got his foot in bucket, doesn’t he.

  912. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 1:16 am

    We should keep hitting balls to right field. Rayburn makes Duncan a gold glover. A routine pop fly looks like its knuckling when he tries to catch it.

  913. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 1:17 am

    Al Leiter is great even when he screws up, ESPECIALLY when he screws up and doesn’t even realize it!

    LMAO!

  914. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:17 am

    Even when Damon strikes out, he takes a hundred pitches.

  915. Shdw August 25th, 2007 at 1:18 am

    According to Gameday that at bat by Damon was horrible. the alst 2 strikes weren’t even in the zone.

  916. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:18 am

    Dave, do you know what slg is?

  917. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 1:18 am

    Boston Dave,… How many intellegent Red Sox trolls can you fit in a phone booth ? ( BOTH of them )..and how many complete @$$hole Boston Fans can you fit in that Wicked Funny Fricken’ Joke of a Fenway Park ? ALL OF THEM ! I’m done reading posts from 4 year olds, Dave. Have a great night, friend !

  918. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:19 am

    Gameday says pitching=Edwar

  919. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:19 am

    If they (team, judges, admin, whoever “they” is) keep fans waiting 4 hours during a school night, that’s just being real jerks. The families either waste good money by going home, or the kids are forced to stay up all night and mess up in school the next day.

    On another note, I never got why pitchers walk in like a 40 foot circle around the mound when they strike someone out. Adrenaline release??

  920. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:19 am

    Michael, alas you have repeatedly declined to offer a reasonable alternative that the Yankees failed to take. Sorry man, when you rip the hottest team in baseball and don’t offer one, it kind of makes you look like an ass.

    This just in…. the St Louis Cardinals won the WS last year and their entire lineup wasn’t stacked!!! Get out of town!!

  921. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 1:19 am

  922. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:20 am

    Dave, do you understand that Damon is a very average hitter and that Jason Giambi is far superior?

  923. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 1:20 am

    before one of the trolls astounds us all with actual grammar skills…*intelligence* is obviously escaping ME right now as well..Good night, ALL !

    _According to Gameday that at bat by Damon was horrible. the alst 2 strikes weren’t even in the zone._

    According to my eye sight that at bat by Damon was horrible. it was so bad, even Ray Charles winced, and he’s dead.

  925. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:21 am

    Michael, you gotta do your research. Re: AP’s defense, how many errors has he made at first this year?

    Re: offense, how many high OPS 1B’ers are in the AL these days? Which of them was available to the Yankees last year or this and what would the Yankees have had to give to get them (Texeira)?

    I don’t think AP is great, but he has been near perfect defensively (that is not a subjective thing – look up his fielding stats please and watch the games) and with regard to offense, he is a #8 / #9 hitter. So what? We have 5 guys who can hit #3 or #4. We don’t need another.

    I don’t expect him to be around as our 1B starter much longer so it doesn’t really matter. Beyond looking outside the organization, which Cahsman is certainly doing, Duncan is almost certain to get a shot at the position in spring training ’09. It just is not that big of a deal right now.

  926. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:21 am

    We need Edwar to have a clean inning here. Time to put the Angels outing in the rearview mirror. Above all else, no walks!

  927. mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 1:21 am

    i dont have the best feeling about this game.

  928. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:21 am

    Clemens was pretty bad tonight, but he did keep us in the game!!

  929. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:22 am

    Dave, Michael offered alternatives, but your were too busy gobbling up Andy Phillips overrated defense to notice.

  930. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:22 am

    Wow. Win, lose or draw I give Torre credit for going to a kid here. Especially after he got smoked in LA.

  931. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:22 am

    Yeash. Scary right there.

  932. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:22 am

    get that pitcher a sangwich! dont spill any on jobas dress tho!

  933. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 1:23 am

    yikes !

  934. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:24 am

    Bologma, I pay my taxes so you can get your disability check. I don’t think I should be required to educate you on top of it. Like I said, take your pills and hit the sack.

  935. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:24 am

    Does anyone know Edwar’s full arsenal?

  936. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:24 am

    Another walk. SJ44 is about to have a heart attack :D

  937. Don Vito Bellamo August 25th, 2007 at 1:25 am

    no problem…here comes the GIDP !

  938. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:25 am

    Its to the point now that no matter who pitches, they can’t stop walking people.

    Inge, 0-12 coming into this game, they walk him twice. Brutal.

  939. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 1:25 am

    Hey Boston Dave, You are a good poster but the more you feed these fools, the more they will keep trying to push your buttons. Let them write what they want because you know they have no clue what is right anyway.
    Hopefully Peter gets their Ip’s and banishes them so we don’t have to deal with them again just like the other dweebs he’s gotten rid of.

  940. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:25 am

    thank you Iron Horse

  941. Joe August 25th, 2007 at 1:26 am

    What’s going on with Boston Dave and Bologma? Boys be civil, we’re on the same side here.

  942. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:26 am

    As long as Math Geek does not throw 5 change-ups in a row like he did against Garret Anderson, we should be OK. Guide him Jorge, guide him…that is if you can get your head into this game too!!!

  943. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:26 am

    Edwar has a great change, a 90 mph fastball. And a poor to average slider

  944. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:26 am

    Dave, you’ve said nothing educational. You should really listen to people like Michael.

  945. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:26 am

    I hear ya Vinny.

  946. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:27 am

    It was a really close call, but Maybin was out right there. Anybody else would definately have been out.

  947. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:27 am

    Iron Horse-

    It didn’t really require it, but I did do my research. Andy Phillips’ career OPS is nearly 100 points below league average, including all those guys who actually have defensive value at middle positions. He has no busines playing every day as a first baseman for any team in the league, let alone a contender. What does fldg % at first have to do with winning baseball games? I didn’t bother to reserach that one because there is no way he can make up for a bat that brutal unless he plays catcher, center, 2b, or SS.

  948. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:27 am

    I wish he would have walked anybody but that little pest.

  949. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:27 am

    Maybin looked out to me

  950. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:27 am

    are you flipping kidding me?

  951. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:28 am

    It’s too bad his slider’s not better. I feel like when you only have two effective pitches, it’s easier for a hitter to sit unless you have full confidence in throwing both of them at any time.

  952. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:28 am

    Arm, throw ball, now…

  953. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:28 am

    now hes on second when he was really out

  954. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:28 am

    I know Edwar’s arsenal: a low 90′s fastball and a high 70s change-up. If that doesn’t work, he throws a calculator at the batter.

    Oh my God…we can’t even get a runner on the pitch out. And Pudge stole a base onus tonight, in case anyone wasn’t watching. I love Jorge. But this just is not his night.

  955. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:29 am

    I don’t care if Maybin is just 12 years old. He hasn’t earned those kinds of breaks yet.

  956. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:29 am

    Jorge’s brain to arm, “throw ball, now… no now…”

  957. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:29 am

    I know Edwar’s arsenal: a low 90′s fastball and a high 70s change-up. If that doesn’t work, he throws a calculator at the batter.

    Oh my God…we can’t even get a runner on the pitch out. And Pudge stole a base onus tonight, in case anyone wasn’t watching. I love Jorge. But he’s a bit ragged right now.

  958. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:29 am

    pull the string, and watch em swing… ya edwar!

  959. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:29 am

    Teams just run wild on the Yankees. Its why you can’t walk people because they become doubles.

    I have never seen a team so inept at throwing out runners.

    Huge K by Edwar to get out of the jam.

    If its me, I go Vizcaino in the 7th. Edwar did his job. No need to run up the innings with him.

  960. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:30 am

    Double clutch by Jorge, but Edwar gets strike 3! Lot’s of little mistakes are being bailed out tonight.

  961. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:30 am

    See that Dave and Iron Horse? Michael understands much, much more about baseball than either of you.

  962. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:30 am

    I mean a 90mph fastball is good, especially offset by his changeup, but he clearly at this point prefers to throw his changeup in a jam.

  963. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:30 am

    Sorry for the double post – having major tech issues right now…someone call Edwar Ramirez to come over and reprogram my computer.

  964. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 1:31 am

    I have witness a K for K-Ram in a pressure situation

  965. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:31 am

    Michael-What does his fielding pct have to do with winning? Um, he makes all the plays so he doesnt put guys on base that dont belong there, therefore your team lets up fewer runs so they win more games. Im guessing that was too complex for your peanut sized brain, right?

  966. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:31 am

    and here is where the yanks take the lead….

  967. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:31 am

    An off-season of winter ball working on his slider, and with Nardi, will help Edwar a lot.

    He can be a real asset in the bullpen for next season.

    The kid has guts, I’ll give him that. Just needs one more pitch and he can be tough coming out of the ‘pen.

  968. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:32 am

    Come on, Jeter. Get on for A-rod.

  969. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:32 am

    Iron Horse:

    I chuckled at the calculator comment. I pictured it moving like his changeup.

  970. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:32 am

    Since it’s between innings I’ll bring this up. Pete made a good point about Ty Cobb a while ago. If I’m not mistaking I believe that Cobb pistol-whipped someone to death one time. Did he?

  971. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:33 am

    SJ44, I think THAT’S the reason why the Yanks have so much trouble against the Angels lately. In the 1990s a lot of it was because of sheer luck and bad timing. But after the millenium turn its been very different. We always walk their first hetter and NEVER EVER EVER get their runners out, so they get leadoff doubles every other inning.

  972. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:33 am

    Go NYR is as dumb as I thought.

  973. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:33 am

    sj I agree viz for the 7th. joba 8th and mariano 9th. we need some runs..

    edwar looked good…

    he is much bettr then the likes of villone, henn, burney, and etc..

    he has a chance of contributing…

  974. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:33 am

    When is Jeter gonna hit a homerun??

  975. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:33 am

    carmine, i agree. he’s going to need to hit the corners with his fastball and get comfortable with it before he can really be consistent.

  976. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:33 am

    Carmine, Edwar throws his change off his change, literally. He got killed for doing it 5 times in LA, but I saw him both in Scranton and now in the MLs and he has gotten good hitters swinging at straight changes. Won’t survive long up here though in my view if he tries to throw non-stop changes.

    OOff, looked like strike 3 to Jeter. Thanks ump

  977. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:33 am

    I mean clearly he has talent to have been able to teach himself to throw a changeup that effectively. I’m sure working with someone like Contreras would be a great benefit. I wasn’t attacking him at all.

  978. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:34 am

    this ump = inconsistent

  979. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:34 am

    Bologma- Youre the last person on here that should insult ANYONES intelligence

  980. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:35 am

    Heck, you cant even spell “bologna” right

  981. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:37 am

    Right. A changeup without a fastball is really just a really slow fastball with some movement(sometimes).

  982. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 1:37 am

    Posada hasnt been throwing people out this year. Why not resign him,put him at first next year. Sign Pudge which I believe is a free agent and keep Posada fresh to give us the offensive threat that we need from him.

  983. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:38 am

    Go NYR, you think fielding percentage is a good way of judging defense= STUPID

  984. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:39 am

    Edwar throws his fastball at 90 or 91 that is not junk…..

    if Edwar can throw his fastball for a strike he will be successful and if he cannot get it over he will be in trouble.

  985. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:39 am

    Yeah, Jorgie is not having a very good night tonight. He must be tired or something

  986. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:40 am

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? this ump is atrocious

  987. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:40 am

    That call to Matsui was April Fool’s, right?

  988. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 1:40 am

    That was not a strike to Matsui…

  989. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:40 am

    Pudge stinks. his obp is junk..

    and his d is going down and he is 37.

    the last 2 pitches to hideki were balls not even close

  990. abe August 25th, 2007 at 1:41 am

    god, this ump is horrible.

  991. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:41 am

    How was that pitch to Matsui a STRIKE??

    And take a chill pill Jason Grille.

  992. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:41 am

    I’m pretty sure those 2 called strikes on Matsui could be considered a hate crime against Hideki.

  993. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:41 am

    Ump screwed the yanks again.

  994. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:41 am

    does detroit have Questech?? This ump is going to be greeting people at Walmart with Bologma if they do.

  995. mel August 25th, 2007 at 1:42 am

    Torre’s getting smart by sending in the kid at the beginning of the inning.

    I was horrified after that bad game by Edwar, but he wins the comeback award for this team. Released by the same organization twice. That forgettable game. He’s earned my utmost respect for bouncing back and finding that touch again.

    Tie game. Edwar has to come back for one more inning.

  996. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:42 am

    go to the pen with viz, please….

    hideki swung at that pitch becuase those 2 joke calls by the ump..

    what a friggin joke…

  997. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 1:42 am

    I hope our batters watched that little display of fist pumping by that Puss

  998. DJ August 25th, 2007 at 1:42 am

    chillll jason grilli.

  999. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:42 am

    Gameday showed both of them as being far far off the plate. I mean my eye did as well, but gameday confirmed.

  1000. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:42 am

    I thought Eric Gregg was dead. Two pitches, two feet out of the strikezone on the outer half, called strikes.

    What a brutal job by Bob Davidson. Balkin’ Bob, channeling Eric Gregg. Brutal on the bases, worse behind the plate.

    Just an awful job with the Matsui AB.

  1001. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:42 am

    Why doesn’t Bob make himself useful and call one of his trademark balks the next time we get a baserunner?

  1002. DJ August 25th, 2007 at 1:43 am

  1006. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:44 am

    For a first basemen, fielding pct is a good way to tell if you make the plays. I hate people like you. Instead of just saying “youre an idiot” You could explain your stand point like a normal person. Instead just bluntly calling me an idiot, you could have said something with a little more intillect than “youre a moron” or something like that.

  1007. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:44 am

    Boston Dave-

    What is the average fldg % of a major league first baseman, who makes 90% of his plays catching throws? What would a random player who could hit the ball somewhat have as a fldg%? WHat is Andy’s compared to these guys? More importantly how many relative outs does he make in the field vs. at the plate. Relative to the offense he doesn’t provide, how many runs is this costing a team for every game he plays? How many wins does this contribute? The answers are all out there, but can be summed up by a couple metrics.

    How about Win Share Above Average? Andy is at -1 this year and was at -3 last year. This takes defense into account. Thas is Miguel Cairo, Shea Hillenbrand, Neifi Perez,Jason Tyner bad.

    I just randomly picked some awful offensive players and couldnt find one bad enough to put up a -3 in a single year. And AP didnt even play every day. He is above that pace this year.

  1008. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 1:44 am

    *IT’S JOBA TIME !!! :)

  1009. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:44 am

    Joba joba joba…

  1010. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:45 am

    JOBAS DRESS!

  1011. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 1:45 am

    He still bats in the 280 range and I believe he is still in the top 6 defensive catchers in baseball. Just tired of singles/walks turning into a double by steals.

    Torre should have went out there for the 2 bull$hht calls.

  1012. AL August 25th, 2007 at 1:45 am

    Joba looks like a cross between Clemens and Irabu

  1013. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:46 am

    It’s almost a shock when someone puts a ball in play against Joba.

  1014. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:46 am

    Yankmee, either you are a yankee fan that hates yankee fans or you just have no life, staying up for a team that doesn’t concern you. Either way, go away.

  1015. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:47 am

    I am amazed how bad the refs are in all sports. those pitches were not even close..

    the worst call in baseball this yr. was the bloomquist call at 2nd base.. if they miss a close play like they may have on the maybin call that is fine but when you miss a play by 3 feet that is hard to do..

  1016. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:47 am

    NASTY

  1017. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:47 am

    Yankmee, are you blind?? We’re objective here. The ball to Jeter was a strike, and the strike(s) to Matsui were balls by about 5 inches.

  1018. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:47 am

    Zumaya’s definitely available. I know he threw 30 ineffective pitches in his last game, but that game was almost 2 days ago now.

  1019. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:47 am

    Thames took it the first time but could not resist the second

  1020. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:48 am

    HE GONE!!

  1021. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:48 am

    101mph on detroits gun….

  1022. abe August 25th, 2007 at 1:48 am

    I agree with Carmine, because it’s Bob Davidson against a Japanese player.

  1023. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:48 am

    So glad fielding has nothing ot do with winning games. That makes a lot of sense. Given that, Andy’s fielding pct, which you chose not to look up, is 1.000. You can have no beef with him on D (he should be better than perfect?!?). You can at the plate. But no one was available for an acceptable price so they’ll wait till next year.

    What is funny about this whole discussion is that you are this concerned about our #9 hitting 1B. Out of curiousity – and I mean this not as a dig – where do you rank the AP issue on the list of concerns you have about this team succeeding this year?

    AND JOBA GETS IT DONE!!!!

  1024. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:48 am

    That was the worlds fastest slider

  1025. AL August 25th, 2007 at 1:48 am

    9 IP… 15 K’s… 2 BB, 2 H… 0 runs…

    Well done Jabba!

  1026. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:48 am

    There’s no subjectivity here. Gameday showed the Matsui strike calls as far out as the pitch that was called a ball.

  1027. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    dimitri i love to hate the yankees!

  1028. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    add Thames to that list Pete, another one bites the dust!!!

    Another 1.2.3!!!

  1029. DJ August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    Michael Kay is retarded.

  1030. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    I would have gone to Viz but, I understand Joe’s thinking.

    2-3-4 coming up and this may be the big point of the game.

    With that in mind, Joba comes in and gets the job done again.

    10 pitches, 0 BB (YEA!!!) 1 K, 0 runs.

    The kid is unreal.

  1031. mel August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    Detroit broadcasters and the crowd speechless on that strike 3. When the guys gathered his wits, first word out of his mouth was, “Dang”.

  1032. Will August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    Joba = nizzasty

  1033. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    I really really hope they invent a cloning machine in the next 5-10 years so we can make ourselves about a dozen copies of Joba Chamberlain.

    Rotation:
    Joba
    Joba

    Relief:

  1034. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    “Yankmee, either you are a yankee fan that hates yankee fans or you just have no life, staying up for a team that doesn’t concern you. Either way, go away.”

    that goes for all you trolls.(LOOOSERS)

  1035. AL August 25th, 2007 at 1:49 am

    You guys need to realize the Yanks are getting plus production from 2B, C, SS, 3B, and LF… they can live with a below average 1B….

    And the way it’s going….in two weeks – Betemit will be the regular 1B… so relax

  1036. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:50 am

    Joba does it again. I am speechless.

  1037. This Year August 25th, 2007 at 1:50 am

    10 pitches. Bend the Joba rules.

  1038. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE August 25th, 2007 at 1:50 am

    poor yankees……

  1039. Deryck August 25th, 2007 at 1:50 am

    Hey Pete, I don’t know very much about baseball, but it seems to me there should be a rule against 101 2inches off the plate and then throwing an 86mph slider on 3-2.

    Can you clarify? Is that legal?

  1040. AL August 25th, 2007 at 1:51 am

    The Braves DFA’d Wickman tonight. He nixed a trade to NYY earlier – I’d be curious to see who’s interested.

    I’d think Cleveland – Wick had success there before. Maybe even Boston?

  1041. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:51 am

    yankmee serious staying to spout your nonsense you should get a life.

    Joba should pitch the 8th… Wang goes Saturday…Joba 2 innings tommorrow Viz and Mariano….

    they need to win this game…

  1042. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 1:51 am

    We can definitely send Joba out there for another inning.

  1043. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:51 am

    Stat guys and “watch the game” guys agree. Job r00lz.

    I rank AP batting 9th as my #1 concern for this team, Not because it is the most imprtant but because it is the easiest to fix (i.e. bench him for giambi, betemit, damon, duncan, anyone else). Obviously getting some decent SP would be great but we do’t have that sitting around and have tried most of the available options, including spending $1 million per start on Clemens.

  1044. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:52 am

    Alvin,

    With that cloning machine, the Yankees won finish 162-0!

  1045. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:52 am

    dimitri, yankmee is the typical scared sox fan that i see every day here in boston. at first they laughed “we’re up 14″… then 10, then 8, then 6, then 5. they are scared and it helps them feel better to act this way. no point in even responding to them. its part of their therapy.

  1046. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:52 am

    Michael Kay is the only announcer that could call a 100 mph fastball a slider

  1047. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:52 am

    WOULD finish, sorry

  1048. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:52 am

    now you cant use joba again for two days or else his little pee pee might get hurt.

  1049. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:53 am

    Cano comes alive!!

  1050. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 1:53 am

    I want Joba to play 1B and bat 9th.

  1051. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:53 am

    lol NYR, I wish I had YES just to hear that. i am stuck with detroits guys.

  1052. AL August 25th, 2007 at 1:53 am

    Joba’s coming back for the 8th.

    I would’ve pinch hit Giambi there for Phillips even though its Lefty – Lefty…

    Seay hangs one and it’s 8-6

  1053. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 1:53 am

    yankmee brings to mind that age old question of what kind of yankee hating douche sits around watching a full game (4 hours delayed mind you), AND posts about it?

    This is the hardcore definition of loser. Wow

  1054. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:54 am

    Al Leiter’s gonna punch Michael Kay

  1055. Will August 25th, 2007 at 1:54 am

    i see bobby coming through here, come on!!

  1056. mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    yankmee, you haven’t died yet. I wished slow painful death on you about 15 minutes ago. What gives?

  1057. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    You know what the porblem with stats are? They have SO many stats that if you want to find a problem with someone, you can do it. That is why you cant read into all of these stats.

    I am not quite sure why you put a Lefty Abreu in there against lefty when you had a right in Shelly Duncan at the plate

  1058. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    michael, get over the AP stuff. you can have your opinion. it’s the minority opinion but you’re entitled to it. nobody really wants to hear the AP bashing anymore. we get it. you dont like him.

  1059. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    Nice job AP!

    Here’s where I dislike the Joba Rules. I’m all for protecting young arms, but say Torre sends him out for another inning and he gets a 10 pitch inning again. That’s 20 pitches. Do you really need to make him miss two games because of that?

    They should have a caveat in the Joba Rules that says if he pitches under 20 pitches in one game he should be given one day’s rest only.

  1060. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    abreu needs not to bail out and get a single

    nice bunt by phillips and nice play by inge…

  1061. Chris Russo August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    I tawt I taw a puddycat

  1062. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    That’s like a picture definition of tough luck. Good 0-2 swing

  1063. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:55 am

    Iron Horse, I applaud you for at least responding to Michael
    s post, but Fielding Percentage is an awful measure of defense. It doesn’t measure the zone that AP covers. And like Michael said, even if he was as good as vintage K Hernandez he wouldn’t make up for his awful, awful bat.

  1064. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 1:56 am

    So what’s the record for most scoreless innings pitched to start a career in the majors?

  1065. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:56 am

    Michael, I have no problem with Betemit starting 1B when there is not a 12-foot tall throwing across his body lefty pitcher starting and I am pretty sure Torre feels the same way, so perhaps we have not much of an argument after all.

    This game is making me queezy. Come on Johnny!!!

  1066. Will August 25th, 2007 at 1:56 am

    or not, nice catch.

  1067. Joba4MVP August 25th, 2007 at 1:56 am

    Double down Pete. You always double down on 11

  1068. Ali G August 25th, 2007 at 1:57 am

    Booyakasha!

  1069. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 1:57 am

    Alvin, not sure where he stands with the minors included but they definitely want to cap Joba’s work for the season. I’m sure that’s part of it. Look at Verlander and Cole Hamels.

  1070. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:57 am

    Dave I see you’ve failed again to make a constructive support of AP outside of “we already have enough offense.” You are pathetic.

    The only reason Michael is in the minority is because most baseball fans are stupid, like you.

  1071. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 1:57 am

    What is a Bologma?

    Seriously.

    This ptcher is showing the ump up BIG time with that freaking world tour he jsut did after not getting the strike call.

  1072. Joba4MVP August 25th, 2007 at 1:58 am

    Hey, anybody know what those necklaces are that a good amount of the players are wearing this year? I notice it mostly on pitchers, and I don’t think I saw them last year. They’re round and stiff, not a floppy chain or anything like that.

  1073. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 1:58 am

    What did Seay say?

  1074. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 1:59 am

    thanks johnny damon for hitting the grand slam in game 7!
    and thanks for striking out here!!!!!!!!

  1075. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 1:59 am

    Iron Horse, some time back in the thread, plenty of evidence was presented showing Betemit to be significantly better at hitting lefties than Phillips. Does this change your mind?

  1076. abe August 25th, 2007 at 1:59 am

    Damon looks lost to me.

  1077. mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 1:59 am

    These Tiger pitchers are injectin red bull into their veins. They go hopping mad when they get out of the inning. Christ act like you been there before. Douche bags.

  1078. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 1:59 am

    Jeff NJ- You need to take that statement back. You need to use a reverse jinx. Quick.

  1079. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 2:00 am

    wow, those Tiger relievers are pumped. Im personally not a huge fan of the pitcher celebrations. Kind of adds to my pure KRod hatred.

  1080. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 2:00 am

    What is a Bologma!? Sound it out.

  1081. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:00 am

    Michael, don’t worry about being called stupid. Apparently Brian Cashman, Joe Torre, and the rest of Yankee management area all as dumb as you so perhaps you have a career in baseball…

    Ouch Johnny, you piss me off.

    OK, all this yelling on the mound is making me want to have Farnsworth come in and throw at someone. Of course, if that means he has to actually pitch, forget about it.

  1082. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 2:00 am

    Another awful AB by Damon. Back to flailing at balls nowhere near home plate.

    Giambi has to be back at DH tomorrow. They don’t need another guy swinging at balls in dirt. Its what has turned Damon into a nothing hitter at this stage of his career.

    Two pathetic AB’s with RISP tonight. Absolute killer.

  1083. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:01 am

    Yeah I think they want to limit him to 130-140 innings this year. Still, I’d have to think that these situations don’t come up too often.

    Plus, say Joba comes in for the next inning, pitches 10 but doesn’t get all three outs. You can pull him and bring in Viz to keep Joba under 20 pitches and let him pitch the next day.

    I just think it would help the team a bit and not hurt Joba at all, as long as you can trust Joe Torre.

  1084. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:01 am

    That inning, for the first time in this game had my spidey sense resigned to a big L. And I wasn’t even there when Clemens coughed up the runs to make it 6-3.

  1085. Dip August 25th, 2007 at 2:01 am

    Well this is it, that’s game. Go to bed folks.
    Stupid Farnsworth.

  1086. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:01 am

    Im getting tired of Damons smile/smirk when he screws up.

  1087. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 2:02 am

    It’S FARNSY OH GOD !!!

  1088. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:02 am

    Wow- KRAZY

  1089. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:02 am

    Our late inning offensive weapon- Farnsy.

  1090. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:02 am

    Bologma, I would never laugh at you for your disability or “shortcomings”. However, your insurmountable struggle to grasp the English language while making miserable attempts to insult others is somewhat humorous.

  1091. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 2:03 am

    Do my eyes decieve me?!?!? Why is Farnsworth in this game?!?!?

    ~bangs fist on table~ WE WANT MORE JOBA!!!

  1092. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:03 am

    Agreed on the pitcher celebrations, though Joba has done it a couple times so tough for me on the double standard there. Regardless, K-Rod is by far the worst and I HATE HIM for it.

    It puts Mariano greatness in further perspective – get the job done, calmly walk off the field.

    Oh God, Farnsworth. I would have liked 2 innings of Joba tonight. You gotta win tonight and worry about tomorrow tomorrow. Cmon Kyle – try not to be yourself.

  1093. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:03 am

    please a one two three here. That would do heaps for Farnsworth’s confidence.

  1094. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 2:03 am

    Joe Torre is dumb. Do you remember him starting Miguel Cairo over Andy Phillips?

  1095. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 2:03 am

    One for Joba is enough tonight. You don’t want to lose him for two days and you don’t want to lose him for the first game of the Red Sox series.

    One was enough. Going to Farnsworth? Either Torre is getting more confident in him or Vizcaino may not be healthy.

  1096. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 2:04 am

    ohhh maaan…can I bum a cigarette off someone?

  1097. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 2:04 am

    the Joba rules will haunt us..

    I cannot be confident when this guy is in the game…

    kyle threw the ball to 1st without making an error.

    please kyle please…

  1098. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:04 am

    Dare we drea? Dare we whisper…?

    1-2-3

  1099. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:04 am

    I still don’t trust the guy yet but does anybody know what Farnsworth’s number have been lately? They have to be pretty good. I should wait til he’s out of the inning to post this but…

  1100. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 2:04 am

    Again Dave, you can’t support your stance. Do you know what OPS is?

  1101. mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 2:05 am

    alright he’s done the easy part. Two out.s can he get the third without messing up.

  1102. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:05 am

    Michael- You probably should not have said that

  1103. E-ROC August 25th, 2007 at 2:06 am

    I guess it’s time to trust Farns again because he has gained Torre’s trust. Damon is struggling. Thank God we have Giambi and hopefully, he’ll be pinching hitting if it goes to extras.

  1104. Will August 25th, 2007 at 2:06 am

    Is Farns looking at Joba and realizing “Oooh, so THAT’s how you’re supposed to pitch 100 MPH and slider!!”??? Glad he’s coming around, we need him as long as he’s here.

  1105. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:06 am

    Papelbon’s histrionics on the mound are the worst for me. Or Beckett, like when he yelled F%&$ You! to that guy who got thrown out stretching.

  1106. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 2:06 am

    Listening to Al, it sounds like he’s about to keel over (he’s yawning as he does the telecast).

    Go Farnsy! Nice inning.

  1107. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:06 am

    Wow

  1108. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:06 am

    I like Farnsworth in the last few outings. The ball is staying low, the slider is being used more (and also kept low), and he shaved a few mph off his fastball (95-96 instead of 97-100) to get better location.

    Impressive.

  1109. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 2:06 am

    Good inning Farns.

  1110. EY August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    WOW
    FARN-SOME-WORTH 1-2-3! And he struck someone out.

    Can’t believe I’m seeing this.

  1111. mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    Looks like Farnsy has learned a thing or two from Joba. Like throwing strikes consistently.

  1112. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    People wondering why Joba not still in there, don’t forget about the Joba rule least discussed. Joba can only pitch two innings if he has had two days off prior to the inning.

    I gotta think as we get closer to October, the day will come where Joe wants to break a rule to go for a win. Does he have to call Cash at that point or will he just take that gamble? That day will come, should be interesting.

  1113. BX 12 Fordham Road August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    exhale….

  1114. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    That’s six straight scoreless outings for Farnsworth. I believe that’s a season high.

    Like I have been saying, he can help this team down the stretch if he pitches like this.

    He looked like he was channeling Joba in that inning.

    That may have been his best inning of the season.

  1115. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    Interesting a month ago the Braves offered Wickman for Farnsworth if the Yankees took all of Farnsworth’s contract on. Today, Wickman is DFA’d and Farnsworth pitches an impressive 1-2-3.

  1116. Joba4MVP August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    Oh yeah, that Torre guy is a real idiot. Only 4 world series, 10 first place finishes, and 6 total world series appearances. Man, how incompetant can you get.

    By the way, I almost don’t feel like vomiting when Farnsy comes in anymore. Almost…

  1117. tepats August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    wow a 1-2-3 by fansworth

  1118. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    wow…just…wow!! I didn’t even have time to light up a cigarette! GO FANRSY!

  1119. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    Ugh papelbon and beckett…

  1120. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    Farnsworth looks like Joba there but where are the pump fists?

  1121. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    Hey! I think someone hypnotized Farnsworth and convinced him that he’s Joba!!!

  1122. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    RALLY FARNSY !

  1123. CA Yanks Fan August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    Wow, a little of Joba’s magic dust must have floated onto Farnsworth. Good showing by Farnsy.

  1124. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    1.2.3 with a strikeout
    I think half of the Yankee fans watching this just fainted. It’s ok. You can breath now.

  1125. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    OK, I have to give Kyle his due there. I have been hating him – then he had 4 good to great outtings in a row and I thought maybe, just maybe, he is coming around. Then the LA inning. No ERs to be sure, but totally on the edge erratic. But tonight, in a very big spot, he came through. Way to go Kyle. I’ll wait until Sunday to start fearing your entry into a game now.

  1126. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    I have a theory.

    Farnsworth has 2 pairs of glasses.

    A reading pair and a distance pair

    The type of glasses he wears determines the type of outing he has.

    Safe to say he wore the right ones this morning

  1127. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    Bill James, and a few others, should be drawn and quartered for writing his book for a very simple reason. We now have many millions of baseball experts who assume they know baseball. They know what they read but they can’t see beyond their own noses when it comes to anything else. Sabermetrics is a wonderful thing but it is NOT the end all and cure all in player evaluation. It gives many facts to help evaluate but does not give every facet of the game or the way the team wishes to utilize the player.

    Andy Phillips, much like Will Nieves, was being tried out this year to see what they would get out of him as a possible full time BACK-UP PLAYER. No more, no less.

    The only reason Phillips is starting now is due to the fact Minky and Giambi were hurt. Duncan would never be here, Betemit would not be here if they were healthy. If Betemit would have been acquired last year when they originally wanted to get him, Phillips would not have seen the majors this year. But Phillips is here now and doing a decent job.
    He is over performing for his skill level. He’s never played for any real length of time consecutively. A month is no judge of how he’ll do long term. I don’t think he’ll be here if Minky does well in September personally.
    In Phillips defense, to expect him to have numbers of a regular player or even a replacement when he is basically is a AAAA player is unfair. He is not a full time major league player, possibly a backup but no more than that.

    You can quote all the stats you want to, they means diddly squat because the team had other intentions when they tried Phillips in the first place. He’s only here as an abberation. He’s made the best of it that he could. He will never be a first string guy in the majors, not at this stage of the game.

  1128. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:08 am

    This game reminds me of Game 1 in Anaheim. It’s a game that is there for the taking and we have to grab. Heart of the order should get the lead and then Mo for the 9th.

  1129. This Year August 25th, 2007 at 2:09 am

    can we win this thing?

  1130. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:09 am

    Its safe to say Rodney fits right in with all the thugs on the streets of Detroit.

  1131. mel August 25th, 2007 at 2:09 am

    Need your help with the play by play. Video is schizo and union says gameday operator can’t work past 2 a.m. local time. Either that or he passed out with that 1-2-3 by sissy glasses.

    Thanks!

  1132. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 2:09 am

    zumaya threw over 30 pitches yesterday..

  1133. Shirley August 25th, 2007 at 2:09 am

    Farnsworth just had a 1-2-3 inning! A miracle!?

  1134. Tom B. August 25th, 2007 at 2:09 am

    Wow, methinks Joba has been inspiring Krazy to get his act together.

    Unrelated, who would you rather have on your side in a brawl:
    A) Krazy Kyle
    B) Manchild Duncan
    C) Jack Bauer

  1135. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:09 am

    I got a feeling that A-Rod may provide some more heroics.

  1136. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:10 am

    Alright, strategy time. Do you have Jeter bunt, because they’ll probably walk ARod if he does? I wouldn’t.

  1137. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:11 am

    Bunt even if it takes the bat out of A-Rod’s hands. Jeter hits into too many DP’s.

  1138. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:11 am

    think jeter will bunt?

  1139. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 2:11 am

    GO NYR I got a better theory Farnsy is to the Yankees bat as the Rally Monkey is to the Angels bats.

  1140. abe August 25th, 2007 at 2:11 am

    I want a hit and run

  1141. Deryck August 25th, 2007 at 2:11 am

    I predict a Hit and Run

  1142. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:12 am

    TOm B. I think the better question is who would win Krazy Kyle or Slam Duncan

  1143. Shdw August 25th, 2007 at 2:12 am

    I’d hit and run with Jeter. No bunts.

  1144. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:12 am

    Jack Bauer is on a totally different superhuman level

  1145. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:12 am

    Sell high. Trade Farns while hes hott.

  1146. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:13 am

    Yeah but doesn’t Jeter have good numbers off this guy? I’d go for a hit and run or a steal, and if the pitcher gets ahead of the count I bunt.

  1147. BX 12 Fordham Road August 25th, 2007 at 2:13 am

    NYR…a tad racist.

  1148. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:13 am

    Thanks for the book report Vinny.

  1149. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:13 am

    Send Melky and Jeet can hit it in the hole that opens up by second.

  1150. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:14 am

    there goes the bunt and the hit and run

  1151. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:14 am

    Melky needs to run on this pitch.

  1152. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:14 am

    Had nothing to do with race…..OK yeah it did but its the truth and the truth hurts

  1153. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:14 am

    jeter ks arod bomb- my prediction

  1154. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 2:14 am

    Phillips isn’t doing a decent job, he’s terrible. You don’t need sabermetrics to see it. He is 100 points worse than Betemit in OPS. It’s a stat that’s as readily available as batting average.

  1155. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:15 am

    A-Rod looms large…come on Jeter…

    This crowd would be buzzing if they weren’t all comatose from sitting still for 8 hours.

  1156. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:15 am

    How about we let Jeter hit because he has an .800 BA off Rodney

  1157. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 2:15 am

    dp coming here

  1158. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:16 am

    Speaking of stats and moneyball-like things, Billy Beane philosophy here. Just don’t make an out.

  1159. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:16 am

    SoS 27… they’re still not going to get much for Farns due to his contract. I hate to say it but I think they’re going to need him on the team and pitching well. If the starters don’t pick it up, the bullpen will have to.

  1160. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:16 am

    Send Melky!

  1161. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:17 am

    melk is running for sure

  1162. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:17 am

    OK – as good as a bunt. Surprise Jeter watched that one.

  1163. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:17 am

    are you kidding me jeter? at least melk got to 2nd.

  1164. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:17 am

    Same effect as a bunt.

  1165. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 2:18 am

    Don’t like the strategy by not having Jeter bunt. At least the SB helped. Not for nothing, that was ball 4. Balkin’ Bob has been awful back there tonight.

  1166. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:18 am

    If Melky runs he has a 70-ish% chance of making it. I’d take that chance. There’s a higher chance of DJ hitting into a double play than Melky getting thrown out.

    But ARod will be walked now.

  1167. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 2:18 am

    MELKYYYYY :)

    *RALLY FARNSY !*

  1168. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:18 am

    stat, stats, stats, stats and more STATS. Woohoo! Its a game, not math class. There is more to the game statistics. Just watch the games and you will see that what happens on the field is not all about stats. You cant base what a player does for you on stats alone or you dont get a real sense for the game.

  1169. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:18 am

    hello mike rabelo

  1170. Deryck August 25th, 2007 at 2:19 am

    Did NYR really just say that? I always knew there were idiots in the world, I just didn’t know they posted on this website

  1171. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 2:19 am

    Good job Jeter. Held the bat in the right place. I’m not going to wish injury on Pudge, however let’s just say I won’t be upset if he and Sheff go on the DL together.

  1172. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:19 am

    If they walk A-Rod, feel very comfortable with Jorge up two on and one out.

  1173. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:19 am

    I predict Clutch-sui knocks in the go-ahead.

  1174. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 2:19 am

    I hope Ivan is out for the next three games.

  1175. Bologma! August 25th, 2007 at 2:20 am

    See NYR, that’s the sad thing. You watch the game and you still can’t figure it out.

  1176. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:20 am

    dont try to steal 3rd cabrera…..

  1177. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:20 am

    That had to feel good.

  1178. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:20 am

    Ok NYR, then what the hell do you base it on? Gut feeling? Coin flip?

  1179. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:20 am

    Another crappy call!!!
    Need an A-BOMB,cant let the umps decide this game.

    I think with these tight playoff race,someone would take half his contract over.

  1180. Will August 25th, 2007 at 2:20 am

    alex will come through again, lets go

  1181. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:21 am

    that was a nasty change… cmon arod

  1182. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:21 am

    .486 in the 9th inning with RISP. Unclutch trade him etc.

  1183. Deryck August 25th, 2007 at 2:21 am

    Why pitch to A-Rod? That makes no sense to me. You have a relatively hot guy on deck, but one who runs a 10 second 40.

  1184. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:22 am

    Go NYR-

    I don’t need stats to know AP sucks. When I watch games, all these teams have guys at corner positions that hit the ball with authority, sometimes going over the fence. And they also seem to get to first bas without even hitting the ball, at least 35% of the time. The Yankees have this guy who nealry 3 times out of 11 hits little flares and gets to fist base. And makes outs the other 71& of the time. And they all catch the ball that is thrown to them usually.

  1185. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:22 am

    i hate to say it but rodney is pitching perty good right now

  1186. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:23 am

    Those were some vicious change-ups. Damn.

  1187. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:23 am

    You gotta love doctors or trainers. You go to em and say your arm is broke. They take a freaking X-Ray and they draw the conclusion that your hand is broken. Then they feel the need to say your hand is broken right in here. And then they proceed to squeeze the broken bone. Its like, I think I know where its broken, the whole squeeze thing was not necessary. And then they say” I did not mean to hurt you” And then you say”nope, You did not mean to hurt me but you squeeze my broken hand. Thats my random rant on doctors

  1188. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:24 am

    Nasty changeup. Cant do much about that when you’re behind 1-2.

  1189. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:24 am

    cmon jorge….

  1190. BX 12 Fordham Road August 25th, 2007 at 2:24 am

    that looked awfully 2006-ish

  1191. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 2:24 am

    I don’t like our chances of winning a tie game on the road, we better score here.

  1192. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 2:24 am

    I was trying to back up your points iron horse. I’ll remember not to in the future.

  1193. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:24 am

    WTF kind of call is that?!!?!?

  1194. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:24 am

    this ump is a POS

  1195. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:25 am

    This ump loves strike calls in the right handed batter’s box.

  1196. Deryck August 25th, 2007 at 2:25 am

    When exactly are we getting logins and passwords for the comments section?

  1197. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:25 am

    This ump BLOWS.

  1198. Will August 25th, 2007 at 2:25 am

    booooo!!!!

  1199. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:25 am

    Something is going to give. This home plate ump has been brutal tonight- mostly against the Yanks since the Tigers swing anyway.

  1200. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:25 am

    Go Jorge!! This ump is awful!

  1201. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    BULL$#!T

  1202. Brian M August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    Pete, I know it is late but no more time rants. It is 7.16am here. That’s not a typo. And no, I didnt just get up.

  1203. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    This ump is bad. This call and the call on Jeter. WOWOWOWOWOWOW

  1204. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    Oh my god I want to fly up to Detroit and punch this dude in the face so bad…

  1205. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    honestly, what recourse is there when an ump screws up this badly? i dont expect every call but this is pathetic.

  1206. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    These umps need to have some tolerance. How could Jorge take the next pitch after that? Bad sequence by 3-4-5 after leadoff single.

  1207. Khoa August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    No F’n way! Jorge got screwed

  1208. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    UMP IS CRAP!!! WTH?!?!?! questec his a$$!!!

  1209. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    Honestly, if Comerica has Questec, this guy’s gonna get a nice report. Those pitches landed about where Matsui’s did.

  1210. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:26 am

    Get your money’s worth now Jorge!!!He’s been terrible all night!

  1211. abe August 25th, 2007 at 2:27 am

    OK, I take it back. Bob Davidson did not committ a hate crime against Hideki. He’s just a bad ump.

  1212. BX 12 Fordham Road August 25th, 2007 at 2:27 am

    WTF was that ?

  1213. Deryck August 25th, 2007 at 2:27 am

    That little shoulder shrug said it all. Yep, I called you out because you showed me up. That’s the problem with umpires. Posada should not have said anything but the plate umpire had to unzip his pants and show the entire crowd how big his johnson was.

  1214. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 2:27 am

    How does he keep his job?

  1215. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:27 am

    I checked and Comerica does not have Questec. Booooo

  1216. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 2:28 am

    this ump sucks.. i have seen this movie many times this yr. I hope and pray I am wrong but it usually ends bad for the yanks..

    this umps sucks…again how does a 4 billion dollar industry have this garbage..

    GARBAGE…

  1217. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:28 am

    We’re right up here in Motown and Bob is doing a great Stevie Wonder impression with these blind calls!

  1218. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:28 am

    I dont care if Jorge struck out, someone should have argued a long time ago. Props to Posada for showing some stones. Now its time for the yanks to feed of his energy and win this thing.

  1219. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:28 am

    leave farns in, have him throw a high heater right at the umps chest, and have molina not move.

  1220. Pelotero August 25th, 2007 at 2:28 am

    Oye Jorge, usted se que da.

  1221. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:28 am

    Pete- Firework show just happened. Thanks to Jorge Posada

  1222. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    I’m actually nervous with Viz coming in. I didn’t think I’d ever say that.

  1225. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    DAVIDSON YOU ARE SUCH A LOSER.. POWER TRIPPING BA$t@RD!!!

  1226. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    I have no problem with umpires throwing guys out who argue calls – those are the rules – fine. It pisses me off when a player int he heat of the game says something and then stops, and the ump chooses to pursue it, goading the player back in, like some macho BS match.

  1227. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    Jorge had a bad game tonight, thats for sure

  1228. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    It should have been Torre getting kicked out innings ago. Cant stand his nose pickin ways,when his team needs some protection vs. umps.

  1229. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    Look at this jerk. He waves Jorge goodbye like he’s better. This guy…I have no words.

  1230. mel August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    Win it for Hip Hip!

  1231. SJ44 August 25th, 2007 at 2:29 am

    Somebody really has to do something about Bob Davidson.

    That is one disgusting performance back there.

    When you are calling pitches two feet out of the strikezone strikes, you aren’t an umpire, you are Tim Donahy, game fixer.

    If he wants to go home, send him home. To try and end the game himself is a joke.

    I don’t blame Posada for getting tossed. Davidson is lucky Posada didn’t get a shot in. It would have been deserved.

    A disgusting peformance by that poor excuse for an umpire.

  1232. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 2:30 am

    Extra Innings? Just what I need at 2:30 in the mourning.

    let’s make it to the 10th and get a piece of Todd Jones.

    Jorge= Sacrificial lamb

  1236. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:31 am

    I think this guy might be the Umperor who’s trying to ruin baseball. The one the Devil Rays have to fight as guardians of baseball.

  1237. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:31 am

    In case this ends quiclkly and badly- g’night fellas. Don’t take the AP stuiff personally, just an honest disagreement. If you dont think the guy is bad now, no flappin of my jaws, or citing of numbers is going to change it.

    But if the game goes on so do I. But no more on AP from me.

  1238. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:31 am

    Lol yeah Boston Dave!! That’s a good idea. The loser can’t eject Farnsworth if he’s knocked out, and if he does oh well its Farnsworth.

  1239. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:32 am

    I agree Go NYR but only to a point – he did knock in the 2 tying runs. But yeah, his head seriously seemed to be elsewhere at times.

  1240. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 2:33 am

    I wonder why they got rid of the 1am game suspension rule and I also wonder why they ever had that rule. FYI, it’s late.

  1241. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:33 am

    I’m seriously pissed at this Bob Davidson entity… power tripping show off.. come on Yanks!!! win it for JORGE!!!

  1242. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:33 am

    OK for another bold prediction (1 for 3 so far which was, ironically predicting the AP RBI- if Viz gets us to the tenth we win it there.

  1243. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 2:33 am

    Looking more and more like that stupid game on Monday against the angels…

  1244. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:33 am

    The Viz struck out the Gnat!

  1245. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:34 am

    I wish we had Wade Boggs in this game. He’d flip on those calls. And we all know Boggs had a better eye than any umpire.

  1246. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:34 am

    K him with the slider Viz

  1247. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:35 am

    no walks no walks no walks… especially not to maybin. We really don’t need another road game/series opener/7-6 loss.

  1248. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:35 am

    can the catcher just jump out of the way of a pitch so the ump gets nailed? is there a violation there? can they say they got “crossed up”?

  1249. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:35 am

    Michael: You’re a good man charlie brown.

    Stepping back to the game for a moment, this is a great atmosphere – Detroit has its back totally against the wall right now in the standings as do the Yankees. The relief pitching on both sides has been excellent (we could have used 2 innings of Joba though). I’m not thrilled to be pulling an all-nighter, but this is good stuff…as long as the Yankees win of course.

  1250. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:35 am

    Maybin’s too young- isn’t it past his bedtime? He’ll go to bed after he finishes his milk and cookies.

  1251. Mike R. August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    NYR

    1-4 1BB 1R 2RBI! You’re right. That’s an awful night. Now that he’s gone we might actually have a chance.

  1252. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    another bad call but he owes us

  1253. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    Alright Davidson owed us that one.

  1254. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    the detroit crew had the gall to say that the pitch was a ball after they didnt say anything about posada.

  1255. abe August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    Thank you Davidson, for once.

  1256. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    you know what, we may lose this game, but it does not remind me of that Angel game loss at all. We were winning that one and the bullpen blew it. This one we were losing, came back and the bullpen has been lights out.

  1257. Will August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    at least the mofo ump gave Viz that pitch outside

  1258. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:36 am

    2-triple man. GET HIM OUT!!!!

  1259. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 2:37 am

    How are you getting GameDay? Mine won’t load up so I’m following on Gamecast.

  1261. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:37 am

    Boston Dave,
    NO. Leave Kyle in and have him throw it as a strike,have Molina move and hit him in the nutts. That would send a message.

  1262. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:37 am

    it’s been a while since i’ve seen Jorge so angry. Can’t blame him the zone moved. And that strike two pitch was no where near being a strike.

  1263. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:37 am

    Armand- It was supposed to be a slider. I swear. It just was alot harder and didnt slide

  1264. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:37 am

    Just let him walk to second. It’s all the same. AAAGHGHHGHGHGHHGGHGHH…………….

  1265. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 2:37 am

    Thanks for posting that Vinny, although i died a little inside

  1266. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    I rahter davidson owe no one and just get it right…

    hold them VIz

  1267. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    whoever wins this game is gonna have some good momentum for tomorrow. lets go Viz.

  1268. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    Molina is going to throw out Granderson in a karma parly (to make up for the Jorge K and ejection).

  1269. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    I hate Granderson.

    As for nailing the ump: You could have Molina set out way outside and have Viz throw high heat right into the ump.

    Normally I don’t like doing it, but if I were Viz I’d pay quite a bit of attention to Granderson. Bah too late.

  1270. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    I’m looking at Gameday and I can say that this strike zone is pretty consistent.

    Consistently INSANE.

  1271. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    Or not

  1272. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    Come on just one more out.

  1273. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:38 am

    unreal…. its too easy. posada, molina…ugh

  1274. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:39 am

    Do this for Jorge!

  1275. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:39 am

    Are we the worst team in baseball at holding base runners? Seriously.

  1276. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:39 am

    Dave- You mean tonight, right?

  1277. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:39 am

    And the ump actually shoed (sp) Jorge away. Come on VIZ.

  1278. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:39 am

    Don’t like this combo. Speed on the basepaths, pesky contact hitter at the plate. C’mon Viz!

  1279. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:40 am

    let’s cash in a few of the bad calls the ump owes us here

  1280. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:40 am

    yes tonight

  1281. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:40 am

    Why weren’t any of those balls strikes? They were for the Tigers.

  1282. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:41 am

    With this guys strike zone, why can’t viz get one even close?

  1283. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:41 am

    One run games against good teams. We’re really bad at these.

  1284. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:41 am

    WOW… that was close

  1285. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:41 am

    I have a bad feeling about this

  1286. mel August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    Let’s go Viz.

  1287. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    Now the first base ump too!

  1288. EY August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    wtf he swung

    Davidson is screwing with us

  1289. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    ok now that was BS, Polanco swung.

  1290. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    How was that not a swing? His hands went past the plate.

  1291. abe August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    He totally swung, no? no replays on MLB.TV…..

  1292. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    bring the outfield way in

  1293. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    JEsus, that was a strike when the tigers were on the mound. I hate these umps.

  1294. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    That no-call was stunning. AND SO WAS THAT BALL 1!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHat the F&%K IS GOING ON!!!!!!!!!

  1295. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:42 am

    can you believe that first pitch??? that was right over!! WTF

  1296. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:43 am

    Oh Jesus thank god. Now we do it for Jorge.

  1297. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 2:43 am

    The Viz to Casey

    “Sit down ya punk, nobody beats me.”

  1298. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 2:43 am

    Time for some runs.

  1299. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:43 am

    The Yankees should file a protest of this game.

  1300. BX 12 Fordham Road August 25th, 2007 at 2:43 am

    This guy a former NBA ref ?

  1301. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:43 am

    Where was that first pitch though? He pointed down but it was AT THE KNEES

  1302. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:43 am

    10 inning. Time for bathroom break. I’m also gonna go grab food.

  1303. Kill Schill-(ing) August 25th, 2007 at 2:44 am

    i can’t believe I’m still watching this. PLEASE, someone committ me to the Yankee Insane Fan Asylum.

  1304. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:44 am

    This ump has it out for us.

  1305. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:44 am

    The first pitch was borderline. I don’t mind when an umpire is subjective on borderline calls. But you can’t be calling a pitch 6 inches off the plate a strike. That’s just not fair regardless of who’s hitting.

  1306. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:44 am

    I don’t go crazy about umps. Honestly. I figure it works both ways. The last inning – both the top and the bottom – was unreal. I think these guys are on loan from the NBA. What’s the Vegas line tonight?

  1307. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    Anyone else want Torre to go out there and get kicked out also. This has to be the worst officiating I have ever seen.

  1308. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    I was kidding at first, but 3:55 is getting closer.

  1309. Dimitri August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    I really want to win this game, especially after these dumb umpiring.

  1310. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    Thank you Viz!!

    Polanco swung at that. If they had won it after that I think Torre would have blown lost it!!

  1311. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    i cant remember an ump doing this poorly in a long time. its been both sides but definitely against the yankees (matsui and posada AB) a bit more. this is REALLY bad and they definitely should submit something to the league.

  1312. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    Yes! They have to score now with the heart of Det order up next inning and ? pitching if we don’t get lead.

  1313. Bob August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    I’m so friggin tired.

    They better win this game or I’m gonna be one miserable SOB tomorrow. lol

  1314. Shdw August 25th, 2007 at 2:45 am

    The umping in this game has been nothing short of horrible. The Yankees have gotten in worse than the Tigers but it’s been bad all around.

  1315. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    uuhh.. I meant blown up and lost it

  1316. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    im not counting on it… but how great would it be if AP comes through here after all the bashing he’s taken in here tonight? Of course pinch hitting for him might not be the worst idea either against Rodney.

  1317. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    Okay, the strike zone is pretty erratic tonight but to be fair, if the players are a little irritated and off-kilter due to the delay, I’m pretty certain the Umpires are off their game too….

    …For God’s sake, it’s almost 3 AM.

  1318. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    1st pithc to Matsui was ewxactly where the “strike” to Jorge was.

    OK, enough on the umps, I can’t take it. Let’s go Matsui!

  1319. Greg August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    I haven’t been able to watch this whole game, but I have watched the last 5 innings or so from my hotel room….has the umpiring been this poor the entire time? Unbelievable. Hopefully a bad call doesn’t end up costing the game.

  1320. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    The first pitch to Matsui was just like the strike 2 to Jorge

  1321. mel August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    O.K. that worked out. C’mon Matsui. Did you guys notice that Matsui gets screwed the most on called strikes? I’ve never seen him question a call once and it seems like the umps just expand that strike zone because of it.

  1322. wiki August 25th, 2007 at 2:46 am

    The Yankees should play this game under protest. This is some Tim Donaghy stuff going on here.

  1323. Greg August 25th, 2007 at 2:47 am

    Good point terry

  1324. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:47 am

    Giambi for Phillips
    Bentemit for Giambi

  1325. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:47 am

    funny thing is… he called those pitches strikes against Matsui earlier. ill take the walk…

  1326. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:47 am

    I guess Jorges arguing worked. Based on Jorges ab, where was that pitch

  1327. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:47 am

    bunt bunt bunt. No Arod on deck, no question.

  1328. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:47 am

    I think the situation is that the Yankees have a lot of veteran hitters who work counts whereas the Tigers feature a lot of free swinging hitters(and it works for them in a different way), so the Yankees have been more affected by an expanded strike zone. Not saying he’s a Tiger fan, but it still stinks.

  1329. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:48 am

    I’m sorry – that last pitch to Matsui looked better than the “strikes” to Posada – seriously. OK – now really no more on umps.

    The fans who showed up 30 minutes before game time have been sitting at that stadium for over 8 hours!!!!!

  1330. Kyle Litke August 25th, 2007 at 2:48 am

    Come onnnnnnn, runs. Let’s end this thing.

    And also, I’m scared of the rest of our bullpen except maybe Mo. Who has been scary himself lately. And plus Torre may not go to him if it’s still tied, waiting for that mysterious save that we can only hope will still happen if Henn or Bruney have to pitch.

  1331. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:48 am

    See? Thats what you get for not listening to Alvin.

  1332. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    I can’t believe they did not bunt.

  1333. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    that blows.. DPs against us suck…

  1334. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    why is Giambi not batting with two on and nobody out?

  1335. mel August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    ugh.

  1336. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    Andy, make all of us, even Bologma and Michael, love you – just for one night. Come on big guy!

  1337. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    For those of you tuning into My9 to see reruns of “Xena: Warrior Princess,” welcome to Yankees baseball!

    These are the types of games that sting when you lose and become classic reruns when you win. Unfortunately, the stars seem to be aligning against us, though on the bright side, the sun will be up shortly.

  1338. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    whay isn’t giambi in with 2 outs? he can at least hit one out

  1339. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    OK, judging by that Matsui AB, that strike zone is within “normal” standards. The ump – for the most part – gave each team a bigger strike zone for one inning and reset to a regular zone.

    It’s fair, it’s done and hopefully, he can keep it that way…jeez DP

  1340. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    why is Mr. Intangibles batting !!

  1341. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 2:49 am

    nice DP. perfect timing.

  1342. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:50 am

    Andy hits a double down the LF line and Matsui hustles home. Mo gets the save and all the AP bashers can eat old Detroit crow.

  1343. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:50 am

    Rodney threw that 104 according to YES

  1344. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:50 am

    where are giambi and betemit?

  1345. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 2:50 am

    “O.K. that worked out. C’mon Matsui. Did you guys notice that Matsui gets screwed the most on called strikes?”

    Hands down.

  1346. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:50 am

    AP AP AP AP !!

  1347. Jim Johnson August 25th, 2007 at 2:51 am

    I’m tired.

  1348. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 2:51 am

    why can’t Giambi get an AB?or a couple for that matter?

  1349. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:51 am

    except Matsui isn’t on base. WTH I need sleep…..

  1350. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:51 am

    Damn, two for MO. Mo needs to save us now. Please be vintage MO.

  1351. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:51 am

    Andy killed that ball…only stellerr play by SS save the Tigers
    :o)

  1352. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:51 am

    I’ve discussed with various people in disconnected situations how Matsui gets some of the worst strike calls.

  1353. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:52 am

    Unbelievable that Phillips hit. He’s a 4A player and can’t handle a righty like Rodney. Torre gave away that inning with no bunt and no Giambi. If we lose now, we deserve it.

  1354. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:52 am

    Armand… I know. where has Giambi been the last few days or so? Last AB would have seemed like a good spot. I dunno…

  1355. Brandon August 25th, 2007 at 2:52 am

    I swear Torre does not know how to use his bench !!!

    how is Mr. Intagibles batting in extra innings w/ Betemit and Giambi on the bench !!!

  1356. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 2:52 am

    Whose left after Mo? Bruney, and then what?

  1357. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:52 am

    Well, the ball Andy swung at was inside, but knowing this umpire it was strike 3. And probably carried over to the next batter for 2 strikes.

  1358. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 2:52 am

    Man, too bad we didn’t have someone who’s hit 11 homers in 178 ABs and has a career SLG of .539 on the bench to hit in that situation.

    Where’s that clip of Herm Edwards yelling “YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!” when you need it?

  1359. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:53 am

    Memo to Joe Torre:

    You need this game.

    You have the best hitting bench in the world.

    Go to them.

    Crap – Mags is up.

  1360. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:53 am

    I cant really argue with Cano not bunting because he’s not exactly the best at it, but Giambi does seem to make some sense there.

  1361. LSU Yankee August 25th, 2007 at 2:54 am

    This is a killer loss at this point for either team.

  1362. Keith R.A. DeCandido August 25th, 2007 at 2:54 am

    Pete, could you please ask Joe Torre why he didn’t want to win the game tonight? That’s the only explanation I can possibly think of as to why Giambi didn’t pinch hit for Phillips in the 10th.

    That was, to my mind, inexcusable.

  1363. Gayle August 25th, 2007 at 2:54 am

    To show just how stupid I just woke up it is 755AM here and this game is still going on when i went to bed it was still in the rain delay lol.

  1364. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:54 am

    How quickly we forget. Andy got one of the first rbi of the game.

  1365. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 2:54 am

    Torre had Mo up and he didn’t bunt to play for a run. Doesn’t make sense.

  1366. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    I think we still have Villone, right? Or was it he they sent down for Bruney?

  1367. mel August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    Alvin,

    That’s what I mean. Roger only went 5, so we march everyone out there for 1 inning?

  1368. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    After all this, my Direct TV MLB ticket coverage shuts off at midnight PST. Never been on that late before for an East Coast game.

  1369. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    Throw Ordonez out!

  1370. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    Im sWell, Im watching. Sorta. Checkign in on your game as I watch Firefly (Greatest. Show. Ever. I’m sure even some of you Yankee fans must be Browncoats).

    I am very impressed by Joba. I kinda hope he becomes your future closer. Having a long standing rivalry between him and Papelbon would be awesome.

  1371. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    Andy Petitte if this goes another inning? I already forgot… what day did he last pitch?

  1372. asburyboss August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    this feels like that Seinfeld episode where Kramer test drives a car to see how far below the E the gas can go…

  1373. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    Mags: Wait till he calls a strike a la Posada – then you’ll really have something to argue about.

  1374. J-Dawg August 25th, 2007 at 2:55 am

    Villone went on the DL with a lower back strain.

  1375. kiwiyankee August 25th, 2007 at 2:56 am

    I’m still reading Pete. Only 6:56 pm here in NZ though.

  1376. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:56 am

    Gayle that is nuts. Where are you?

    I said I was sleeping in tomorrow, I guess i wasn’t wrong. Espically considering I’m hoping this goes to the 11th.

  1377. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 2:56 am

    Oh hush, Mags…it was a strike, the zone is where it’s supposed to be.

  1378. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:56 am

    villone went on the DL to make room

  1379. Go NYR August 25th, 2007 at 2:56 am

    the day before yesterday

  1380. Keith R.A. DeCandido August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    I’m still reading. Heck, I’m still liveblogging the game over at the Replacement Level site….

  1381. Brett August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    the announcer for FSN Detroit just perked up and said, ‘i just realized its 2:55am’ like he’s been completely unaware of his surroundings for the past hour or so. this game is crazy

  1382. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    Jennifer,

    You really want Phillips hitting over Giambi there?

  1383. Frank August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    Pete,
    I am still reading as well. I do not know why I am still up but I am….lol

  1384. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    Assume this is the Dionysis from SF-YF?? Greetings. No thread set up there tonight for this morning-game.

    Nice range Matsui.

  1385. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    CMON Hideki… lay out for that.

  1386. asburyboss August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    we need a rain delay

  1387. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    MVP chants – he’s having a great year, but come on, that’s just insulting with Arod in their stadium

  1388. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:57 am

    Pettitte pitched on Wenesday. So it is already 3 days. It is his throw day. LOL

    Damit runner on second. I will be really ticked if I stayed up this late to watch us lose.

  1389. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:58 am

    i think we could use a K here

  1390. Gayle August 25th, 2007 at 2:58 am

    Jennifer I am in London but based on how this inning is going so far perhaps I should go back to bed

  1391. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    Kevin I didn’t say that, I was merely pointing out to those who trashed Andy that he did contribute in this game.

    Of course Jason should have hit.

  1392. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    Matsui should have had that…………..

    carl crawford makes that catch in his sleep………..

  1393. Pelotero August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    MVP 6 for 12 lifetime against Rivera

  1394. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    back from bars and still reading…

  1395. asburyboss August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday

  1396. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    I don’t know why. The negativity in me sees this ending on a routine single through a hole.

  1397. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    Space Western = One of the Few Thigns more Awesoem than Baseball.

    Also, Space Western= MUCH more approriate at 3am

  1398. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    cmon Mo…. dont let this one get away. Doesnt Raburn have decent speed? he might be tough to double up.

  1399. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    this is going to gut them if they lose :(

  1400. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 2:59 am

    Well, if mags gets knocked or sac’ed in, Torre has got to answer the questions re: his bench. It is literally and completely indefensible. I can’t believe Giambi is still riding pine.

  1401. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:00 am

    bad D by Matsui that was a play he needs to make…….

  1402. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:00 am

    Gayle at least you slept. I haven’t been to bed in almost 21 hours. LOL i’m a little loppy right now.

  1403. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:00 am

    Rivera’s really not a double play friendly pitcher.

  1404. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:00 am

    why would we walk pudge? gotta be thinkin dp

  1405. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:00 am

    have faith carmine

  1406. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:00 am

    This is a helpless feeling. The bullpen was great tonight. As Pete said, three straight leadoff hitters on and Torre sits back and does nothing in the 9th & 10th.

  1407. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:00 am

    Carl Crawford is an alien, Stuart. He’s just too damn good.

  1408. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:01 am

    my coverage wnet off, what is happening.. direct TV 734 went off.

  1409. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:01 am

    OK now Direct TV di cut ff for the Fox Saturday blackout I guess. Is mlbtv working?

  1410. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:01 am

    Whoa, they are walking the bases loaded. Very wierd.

  1411. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:01 am

    i think i agree with this. i hope….

  1412. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:01 am

    jennifer…do you mean loopy?

  1413. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    I think this is definitely the right move…load the bases.

  1414. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    I don’t know if I can watch.

  1415. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    Ouch. This is a gamble.

  1416. abe August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    I don’t like this strategy at all. I think we should have gone after the rookie. If the runner at 3rd is fast, it’s one thing, but it’s Mags….

  1417. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    Yes – force at every base is good. Mo is the best athlete on the field and he gets plenty of chopped come-backers. I am fine loading the bases (once Mags was on 3rd of course).

    Kay and Leiter being quite nice to Matsui not calling out his lack of range there. That ball was in the air for as long as the rain delay.

  1418. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    Ugh, this can’t end well.

  1419. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    Two Intent Balls? Wow. They are really pickign and cvhoosing their batter here.

  1420. E-ROC August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    I disagree with this tactic.

  1421. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:02 am

    PBL, yeah see what I mean. I can’t spell at this point.

  1422. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    Inge leads the league in SO?? Is that true? That’s a nice stat to hear right now…

  1423. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    have faith in Mo… at least try to?

  1424. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    I won’t even say anything

  1425. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    case in point, i guess

  1426. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    Yeah AP is crap and infield defense doesn’t matter.

  1427. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    NOW THAT’s WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT AP!!!!!

  1428. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    See thats why you need Andy at first. :D I thought that was in the outfield.

  1429. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:03 am

    go andy!!! prove us wrong!!

  1430. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Was that 2 IBBS? i think I like it if it works

  1431. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Nice, but not out of it yet.

  1432. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    OMG! I started to click the remote off! Way to go Andy. One more Mo.

  1433. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    This either ends veyr well or very badly and I imagien Torre will be annihilated in the papers if its the former.

    *poeks slow Gameday*

  1434. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Heh – as a Giambi backer, I can confidently say we’d be tied at 7-7 right there.

  1435. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Show AP some love guys.

  1436. LSU Yankee August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Great play…like Betimit the other night against the Angels…..hopefully oppossite result.

  1437. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Another fastball?

  1438. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Andy!!!!!

    and the poor guy has been bashed all night here.

  1439. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 3:04 am

    Thats why you keep andy in the game. defense.

  1440. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    Maybin is getting a crash course in greatness.

  1441. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    Now this is where we usualy get hit by the richochet

  1442. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    If we pull this one out… dont let the AP haters forget that play.

  1443. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    Tied at 7? two would have scored.

  1444. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    OH MO! VINTAGE MO!

  1445. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    they don’t have cutters like that in AA.

  1446. Will August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    wow, just wow. kudos to Andy and Mo

  1447. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    Great play by Andy, dammit. Now it HAS to be a hit. Looks liek we’re goign to 11th.

  1448. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    ok who thinks Andy Phillips sucks again? raise your hand?

  1449. EY August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    MOOOOOO!!!!!

  1450. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    Pitchers take note: No yelling, no fist pumping. Calm, cool, great. I love Mo

  1451. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    YEAH BABY!!!! I live in a 5 family and probably just woke up 60% of my neighbors!!!

  1452. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:05 am

    WOO HOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GOTTA GO TO MO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice Grab AP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1453. abe August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!phew.

  1454. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Mo turns it ON. I think he got 5 years younger after that pitch.

  1455. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Sorry to ignore the Phillips play, Andy. Great job, Andy.

  1456. Chris August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    flashes of genious from torre?

    yesssir!!

  1457. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    WE WILL NOT BE DENIED!!!!

  1458. LSU Yankee August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    anyone elses palms a little sweaty? good grief

  1459. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    direct TV turned of 734 I am in LA.. please give me updates.. I do not want to listen to it in my car on XM…

    how did Mo get out of it??

  1460. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Okay bobby damon and melk. You have 2 people, and 2 groups of people to win it now for

    Mo, for saving your butts, and Jorge.

    ANd all the crazy Yankee fans who stayed up around the world to watch this game. And for you to go back to the hotel get a few hours of sleep than go back to the stadium for another game.

  1461. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Statistically, AP is a bad player, i agree, but since getting called up this year he has had a knack for making big plays in the field and at the plate, i’d like to see what our record is with him in the lineup, including last year. I get the feeling we do well when we plays whatever the statistics say.

  1462. Randy Velarde August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Thank you, Mo

  1463. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Wow. Outstanding luck on the line drive and outstanding pitching on the strikeout. These are the jams that good teams get out of.

    And had Phillips entered the game as a defensive replacement, no one would have any problem with him in the game – just saying is all.

  1464. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    I’m confused.

    why did they pull in the infield instead of playing at double play depth. things worked out. but I’m still curious.

  1465. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:06 am

    will the AP haters please stand up???

  1466. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:07 am

    OMG!!! I LOVE MO!!!

    And Andy Phillips is THE MAN!

  1467. Gayle August 25th, 2007 at 3:07 am

    That Phillips play is exactly why you dont take him out of the game you may lose something on the O side but there is no way either Giambi or Betimit who has played first base all of maybe 4 games in his careeer make that play.

    Way to get out of that inning , big momentum change now we go get some runs

  1468. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 3:07 am

    Thank you Jebus.

  1469. Shdw August 25th, 2007 at 3:07 am

    The only bad things about this inning is that when Mo didn’t go 1-2-3 he probably won’t be able to pitch the next inning and also so many batters came up that innings that we have to start off from the top of their batting order next inning instead of facing the bottom.

  1470. Ryan August 25th, 2007 at 3:07 am

    has any MLB game ever been played with a sunrise?

  1471. Chris August 25th, 2007 at 3:07 am

    i feel asleep at 10:30, woke up 20 minutes ago, i cant beleive this game is still on

  1472. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 3:08 am

    hopefully leaving them loaded will be pretty deflating for them. I’ll just be glad to see someone other than Rodney

  1473. riderstoned August 25th, 2007 at 3:08 am

    moooooooo!!!!!!!!!

  1474. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 3:08 am

    Lol if that was Jason Grilli making that strike out he would’ve probably fist-pumped himself up his @$$ and out his mouth.

    Mo? Just walks off the field.

  1475. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:08 am

    I thought the IBBs were a crazy strategy but now in hindsight, just crazy enough to work! :)

    What a HUGE play for Andy!!!

  1476. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:08 am

    Boston Dave,
    That’s one of those plays that doesn’t show up on the stat sheets !!!!!!!!!!!!!! He’s not great but AP gets the job done when it counts.

  1477. mel August 25th, 2007 at 3:09 am

    That’s HOF shizzle.

    Pete, it’s only 9:00 p.m. in my time zone.

  1478. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:09 am

    Wait this guy out Bobby. Take 2 strikes.

  1479. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 3:09 am

    i dont remember the last time i watched a (live) baseball game at 3am.
    yowza

  1480. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    alright GIAMBINO!!!

  1481. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    Pete there are alot of us still awake.

    NOOOOOOO henn in the penn. Game would be over!! NO DON”T DO IT. we need to win now!! Than Mo would pitch two.

  1482. Will August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    we need to score this inning, i dont think we can trust anyone else in the pen.
    G-Man sighting!!! come on!!!

  1483. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    Vinny, hold that thought until the AP haters who went to bed early come back tomorrow.

    And here is the Giambino!!!

  1484. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    I see the headlines: Henn lays an egg.

    Here’s Giambi – of course his hair is already drenched with sweat for whatever reason.

  1485. Phil August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    DAMN!!! MLB Extra Innings cut out on me.

  1486. Shdw August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    If we don’t get a run this time we’re going to be in for a hard time in the bottom holding of 4-5 Granderson and Ordonez up 4th.

  1487. TXYankee August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    I’m still reading, but MLB Extra Innings cut out at 2 am Texas time, so I had to switch to mlb.com. Guess they had no plans in place for 8 hour games.

  1488. JTC August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    I thought AL games had a curfew of 1am…..

  1489. LSU Yankee August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    Lets see what Giambi has got.

  1490. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    Oh yeah, I am still up and watching!

    So what’s the rules on this game? thrown out the window with the 4:01 rain delay? And by that I mean, in the AL, normally you cannot start a new inning after 1 a.m. Did that get pushed back a few hours cause of the delay or wiped out altogehter?

  1491. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    Henn coming in the 11th. Who says this game doesn’t remind them of Anaheim?

  1492. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:10 am

    Man do the Tigers have a single releiver wiht an ERA under 4?

  1493. Jonathan Everett August 25th, 2007 at 3:11 am

    I am still reading. This is the kind of game you can’t turn off. Good job for Torre on the loading the bases and nice strike out by Rivera to end the inning!

  1494. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:11 am

    Andy Pettite can pitch…. maybe give Mo another inning though? he threw 17 real pitches and 8 intentional balls.

  1495. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:12 am

    dang, that was the pitch to crush

  1496. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:12 am

    Gayle-

    Do you really think that other infielders cant catch a sinking liner? they are usually mnore skilled overall than first baseman at defense.

  1497. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:12 am

    Giambi just missed those… wooh..

  1498. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:12 am

    Dave they didn’t go to bed, they’re embarrassed !!!!!!!!!!

  1499. YanksAngel August 25th, 2007 at 3:13 am

    It’s 5:10 in the afternoon here. I’m all for the rare chance of watching a live game in the afternoon, but I do hope Giami plants one here so Mo can save it. Good grief I’m tired of sitting in one spot for so long.

  1500. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:13 am

    OK, I said I wouldn’t say anything, but Michael, and ESPECIALLY BelowMe / Bologna / Mr. Bigglesworth: You need to eat a little crow. Just a little. AP save our asses. Betemit MIGHT have forren that – Giambi doesn’t.

    If we don’t score here, I fear we are just about out of magic tricks.

  1501. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 3:13 am

    oh no!

    not sean henn.

    oh no!

    we’ve come so far..

    oh no!

  1502. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:13 am

    It’s up to Jeter now. Melky do it for Jorge. We don’t want to see Henn pitch. Please i’ll cry

  1503. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:13 am

    i’d suspect you HAVE to send Mo out again, if I wanted the Yanks to win. However, I don’t so I say Henn. Giambi wiht an endless at bat.

    Firefly with awesome sentences that include the phrase “I reckon’…”

  1504. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:13 am

    draw a walk Melky…

  1505. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    Come on Melk!! No Henn from the Penn.

  1506. Brian M August 25th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    This reminds me of that world series game that went to about 17 innings a couple of yrs ago. It is after 8am here now. For the world series game they cancelled their breakfast TV schedule!!

    This one aint on TV unfortunately but I still got excited watching Mo on gameday that last inning.

    Nice to be able to bring Abreu and Giambi off the bench.

  1507. LSU Yankee August 25th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    MELKY JACK JOB.

  1508. abe August 25th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    Melkman, please go deep or hit a double. I pray.

  1509. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    Another 1-2-3 Yankee inning

    I say Mo for another inning

  1510. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    DAMIT!! I think we should all just go to sleep. Sean Henn is coming in. :(

  1511. wiki August 25th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    we need a miracle performance by sean henn

  1512. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:15 am

    oh man PLEASE not Sean Henn….

  1513. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 3:15 am

    Henn time! Ok, maybe that is not that exciting. He owes us a good outing after the last few times.

  1514. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:15 am

    Miracle isn’t the word. :(

  1515. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:15 am

    Well, the Tigers normally less than stellar bullpen has absolutely shut us down tonight. I have a feeling Super Sean Henn is going to give us a repeat performance.

  1516. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:15 am

    I am not going to eat crow based on one random play that other guys can make too. Betemit plyas the skilled infield positions of SS, 3rd and 2b. Do you really think he can’t (and only AP uniquely can) catch an infield liner? 3rd baseman do it all the time, even more than first baseman do.

  1517. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 3:16 am

    Gayle!

    digya get any sleep?

  1518. Bill Brasky August 25th, 2007 at 3:16 am

    This game will never actually end. We are all in Limbo. If you look behind you right now you will see a cloud of unbaptized baby souls.

  1519. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:16 am

    btw, I gotta say this – it is times like this when I really wish the Great Britton were here!

  1520. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:16 am

    Its so late, if Im the Tigers OR the Yankees no amtter how this ends… you knwo what I do? Sleepover in the park!

    Certainly late enough..

  1521. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:16 am

    Just a question why did Joe just use everyone for 1 inning. He could have used edwar for 2 and Joba for 2.

  1522. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:16 am

    These teams have to be exhausted after wating around for 4 hours to play and now an extra inning game to boot. The first mistake loses the game.
    I was surprised by Torre’s decision to walk 2 that inning but it worked out well. Great job by Mo too !

  1523. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:16 am

    Damn, it is Henn from the Penn.

    I met the kid last April, was a very cool guy. signed everything I had for him too.

    Let’s go Sean!

  1524. Brian M August 25th, 2007 at 3:17 am

    I’d rather see Bruney than Henn. And that is sayin something. Of course I’d rather see Britton but we’ll not go there. Hell I’d rather see Horne, Kennedy, Igawa, White or Brower.

  1525. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 3:17 am

    Sorry, Pete – can’t do that. I could say something about blind squirrels, but I want some good mojo for the bottom of the 11th.

    Basically, my point is that you have to maximize your chances to win every game at this point. Andy Phillips does not maximize the Yankees’ chances for victory.

    But let’s concentrate on this incredible game for now.

  1526. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:17 am

    Too bad we didn’t take Joba for two. There is just no way Sean Henn sees us through against the top and heart of their order. What is the post Henn-plan???? There is none. This kids in it till he loses it. I am getting pissed. And I am exhausted.

  1527. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 3:17 am

    I put my faith in Sir Sean Henn.

    Waahh I’m going to cry.

  1528. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 3:17 am

    As you can tell from my next sentence I’m not a big fan of Sean Henn.

    Is there any doubt Sean Henn gives up the winning run here?

    Make me eat some crow Henn.

  1529. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:18 am

    come on Sean!!! grit it out!! throw strikes!!

  1530. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:18 am

    if sean henn loses another one…

  1531. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:18 am

    yeah I understand why he didn’t use Joba for 2, b/c we want him to be able to pitch again ASAP, but not using Edwar for 2 is kinda looming large right now…

  1532. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:18 am

    Someone tell Kay to shut up about what he is talking about.

  1533. Chris August 25th, 2007 at 3:18 am

    gotta tip ur hat to the tigers, they outlasted the yanks, henn will give up the walkoff here

  1534. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:18 am

    maybe the heavans will open up and we’ll get a suspended game till tomorrow ……..

  1535. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    Good god, no leadoff walk. Please if there’s a God here me now!!!

    THERES A GOD!

  1536. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    YEAH!! a K!! OMG!!?!! keep it up sean!

  1537. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    Make us all eat crwo like the AP haters now have to Henn!

  1538. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    Thanks for not running Granderson.

  1539. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    great job keepin Granderson off the basepaths …

  1540. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    I give Torre credit for not using his usual playbook tonight but it looks like he is down to finger-crossing time. Good night all. I can only watch now.

  1541. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    the way things are going tonight… I say Henn gets em 1-2-3

  1542. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    Joba rule 4a article 2: Thou shalt not have Joba pitch innings than the amount of days he has had off. IE, since he only had one day off, he could only pitch one inning tonight.

  1543. Jim Johnson August 25th, 2007 at 3:19 am

    Pete,

    1500+ comments.

    Holy crap.

  1544. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:20 am

    I wonder if this will be the longest rain delay/game in baseball history.

  1545. asburyboss August 25th, 2007 at 3:20 am

    Is Britton the only one left?

  1546. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:20 am

    cmon Henn…2 more outs!!

  1547. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:20 am

    Vinny, you were right… they didnt go to bed early. they were just embarrassed.

  1548. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:21 am

    Actually Jeff techinically he had 2 days off. Thursday and friday. He pitched on Saturday. :P

  1549. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:21 am

    I heard at one point earlier in the year the Devil Rays were interested in Henn for Carlos Pena….that would’ve been nice. Make me regret that, Henn.

  1550. Dr. Acula August 25th, 2007 at 3:21 am

    Kei Igawa spelled backwards is Sean Henn

  1551. JTC August 25th, 2007 at 3:21 am

    We’re running into the Mets game with fireworks at 4 a.m. territory…..

  1552. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 3:21 am

    99 mph according to My9. That’s gotta be wrong right?

  1553. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:21 am

    Guess no Firefly fans here. Usually if they are abouts, they cant help but speak out when the show is mention. Or my Sox Fan status is gettign me ignored.

    This game has been well played by BOTH teams.. and is gonna ruin them both for tom-todays game. I think theyve both used EVERY pitcher now.

  1554. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    Cmon Michael – if nothing than for laughs, give us a little nod. The “fielding doesn’t translate to wins, especially at first base” stuff and the general “he isn’t mediocre – he is terrible” stuff…

    Well, forget it. We’ve all moved on. I am just trying to distract myself from the impending doom of Henn.

  1555. Mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    I’m sorry Henn is no good. This has Anaheim game 1 written all over it.

  1556. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    crap…. at least Casey is slow as sin and could hit into a DP

  1557. asburyboss August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    is there a curfew?

  1558. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    I saw the movie Serenity, but that’s my extent.

  1559. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    Rabelo is an idiot.

    Henn don’t lay an egg!!

  1560. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    Watch Sean Casey and his tremendous power bat(3 HR in 400 AB’s) win this game with a blast.

  1561. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    I think Henn is going to develop a shoulder injury requiring a DL stint after tonight. Wash those Britton jerseys!

  1562. Phil August 25th, 2007 at 3:22 am

    93 according to Gameday.

    On Gameday, it appears Henn is all over the place and the zone. Is it that way watching it?

  1563. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    Anything on the ground for Casey should be two. Is Bruney ready for Mags?

  1564. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    A DP would be nice right here Henn.

  1565. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    oh god I almostcant watch…

  1566. Tak August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    I am still up; it’s 4:22 in the afternoon here in Tokyo.

  1567. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    NICE JOB!!! I love you palaco!

  1568. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    Nice, Jose

  1569. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    yeah baby!

  1570. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    WTF was that Polanco!!! You weak-minded fool! Gotcha!

  1571. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    I’ll take that too !!!

  1572. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:23 am

    Dinonysus I’ll Browncoat ya’

  1573. abe August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    Good job, Molina!!!!

  1574. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    good job placido!!

  1575. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    STUNNING!!! What in the hell was that!?!?!?! As soon as I saw Molina “sprinting” I knew someone had to be REALLY far from any bag. Wow. That’s is unbelievably terrible, espcially given the situation. And now, a single. GULP.

  1576. asburyboss August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    what the hell is going on he?

    can we all laugh at the thought of Phil Rizzuto covering this game?

  1577. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    DO NOT PITCH TO HIM

  1578. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    Henn vs. Magglio is definitely favorable…..

  1579. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    I was hoping he’d get Casey before he’d have to face the Doubles machine.

  1580. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:24 am

    “Jayne, I told you to scare him”

    “Pain is scary”

  1581. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    come on Henn.. maggs ain’t got nothing but hair!!!

  1582. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    Try the series, Carmine. Its far better than the concept gives it any right to be. In fact its brilliant. I stick it up their with Battlestar Galactica (new) as one of my top scifi shows of all time.

    Although the two are vastl different from each other.

  1583. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    Eject him!

  1584. Chris August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    so I feel really screwed by Directv. They cut the game off innings ago

  1585. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    Torre is hamstrung but this matchup is bad news. Good thing Casey can’t run because only a HR would score him probably.

  1586. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    woah.. scary swing there..

  1587. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    Britton will be up in another week so why bother complaining about it now.

  1588. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:25 am

    WOOWWWW That swing from Mags made me soil myself.

  1589. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:26 am

    My college roommate’s a big fan of the series. I never got into it.

  1590. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:26 am

    as long as the OF is DEEP, he’ll need to jack one to win it. i guess we have tht going for us. casey is slow.

  1591. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:26 am

    Hoooooooly Cow 91 m.p.h. and strike 2 to Ordonez

  1592. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    you have to be kidding me

  1593. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    Cheap hit. Damit!! One more out!! let’s go!!

  1594. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    That was a Tony Fernandez swing.

  1595. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    There are my Browncoats! Thank god! for civilized folk

  1596. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    aaaaahhh so close…

  1597. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    maaaaaannnnn.. nubber.. damn it… come on Henn!! you did a good job on maggs!! keep it up!!

  1598. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    WTF? How come we can’t even have an easy inning when we have two outs and nobody on?

  1599. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    Except Fernandez did it on purpose.

  1600. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:27 am

    DirecTV only ‘blocks’ games for 6 hours at a time. CALL THEM ASAP and compensated! COMPLAIN! its the only way to go. I have DTV, but im close enough in NEPA to get MY 9 on basic. CALL THEM

  1601. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    So that’s how we lost his.

  1602. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    We have to win!! This would be a horrible loss.

  1603. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    Good thing Casey was running or this game would be over already.

  1604. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    Dionysus, where are you from?

  1605. S.o.S.27 August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    I have never seen Molina run that fast. Maybe we should give him a ball to run with after he hits one of his singles.

  1606. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    Crap

    I don’t think Carlos Guillen is scared of Sean Henn

  1607. Pete Feng August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    Nice job by Monina. Please give us your best Sean Henn.

  1608. Dustin in Pakistan August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    hey its lunch time here in Asia. what a great Saturday afternoon for a ball game

  1609. abe August 25th, 2007 at 3:28 am

    Philips sneaks in and picks off Mags here! Come on!

  1610. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:29 am

    GET GUILLEN SEAN!!!

  1611. kasey August 25th, 2007 at 3:29 am

    i can’t believe you’re still up and functioning, dude. great work.

  1612. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:29 am

    team has been there since 2:30. LOL

  1613. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:30 am

    Guillen is good. Don’t give in.

  1614. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:30 am

    Pennsylvania, Dave. But long time Sox fan

  1615. Global Warming August 25th, 2007 at 3:30 am

    That’s what you get for not calling Chris Britton.

  1616. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:30 am

    @#$%^&*()_#$%^&*($%^&*IO(#$%^&*(#$%^&*(#$%^*&(!!!!!!!

  1617. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:30 am

    ugh

  1618. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:30 am

    DFA HENN.

  1619. Iron Horse August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    Good night gang. Thanks for the company. I can’t say I am shocked. Good thing Joba can pitch in two more days – even if that game might be a blowout in either direction.

  1620. Terry August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    I’m not sleeping tonight, I guess.

  1621. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    Well, I’d call that giving in. Two extra inning losses in one week. I nominate Henn for pitcher of the week.

  1622. Jeff NJ August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    Breaking news, Henn sucks. Good night all.

  1623. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    Well this truely sucked. Horrible ending to a very long game. Pack your bags Henn your back to Scranton.

    I’m going to cry. :(

    HENN LAYS AN EGG. Is anyone shocked by this??

  1624. BBB August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    I hate you sean henn.

  1625. Chris August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    told ya, they outlasted the yank pen, that simple..

  1626. Boston Dave August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    how am i supposed to go to sleep after that crap

  1627. Phil August 25th, 2007 at 3:31 am

    Let the second guessing of Torre’s use of the bullpen and use of Giambi begin.

  1628. yankmee August 25th, 2007 at 3:32 am

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  1629. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:32 am

    He made a decent pitch but another walk-off loss for Henn. With 35 games left, can’t have these losses. Offense has got to scratch/manufacture a run somewhere along the way. Awful!

  1630. jennifer August 25th, 2007 at 3:32 am

    Well i’m off to bed. :( SEAN HENN SUCKS!! I HATE YOU!!

  1631. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:32 am

    Tough loss. You won’t see Henn on the playoff roster.

  1632. Kevin August 25th, 2007 at 3:32 am

    “YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!”

    Someone please let Torre know that you don’t play to win the game in two days. It’s time to let the leashes off. Goodnight all.

  1633. Chris August 25th, 2007 at 3:32 am

    wow guillen completely knew that was coming, way to be predicatble guys

  1634. Jonathan Everett August 25th, 2007 at 3:32 am

    Goodnight folks, by the way, who is Sean Henn? I thought I saw that same guy picking up my garbage outside yesterday.

  1635. mel August 25th, 2007 at 3:33 am

    Wow. That’s a tough loss. Taking the next 3 games.

  1636. E-ROC August 25th, 2007 at 3:33 am

    Sean Henn can’t get righties out at ALL. Chris Britton, anyone??

  1637. Carmine August 25th, 2007 at 3:33 am

    Man, I’m pretty sure Carlos Pena could give up a 3-run homerun. And he can hit homeruns too. I’d say Carlos Pena>Sean Henn.

  1638. JRVJ August 25th, 2007 at 3:33 am

    Sean Henn, Bye Byeo!!!

  1639. CA Yanks Fan August 25th, 2007 at 3:33 am

    Henn….. every time this guy comes in, I feel like the Yankees are gonna lose. This guy sucks, WTF. Let Mo pitch 2. Henn = loss, every time, it feels like. He sucks plain and simple. WTF, you suck Henn, you suck the big egg.

  1640. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:34 am

    Is this a record for the latest end to a game, by any chance?

  1641. ansky August 25th, 2007 at 3:34 am

    well at least it wasnt a demoralizing walk off 3 run Home Ru……

    good start to a 4 game series for a team that is teetering on the brink of “will we or won’t we”

  1642. Mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 3:34 am

    Alright no blame on Henn here. He sucks, and that’s that. This is on our offense for not getting it done tonight. That’s that.

  1643. Ghost of Scooter August 25th, 2007 at 3:34 am

    Well, that pretty much stunk. he hit a good pitch though (off his shoe-tops). Carlos has been a great player since he landed in Motown.

    This one hurts.

  1644. Pete Feng August 25th, 2007 at 3:34 am

    Man……. What a bad way to start a series. Terrible job by Henn. I can not believe it.

  1645. Armand August 25th, 2007 at 3:34 am

    I stayed up for that?!??!! Sean Henn owes me sleep… and then some..

  1646. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:34 am

    Hard to blame Henn when the Yankee offense put up nothing for 6-2/3 innings against this stellar crew:

    T Byrdak 1.2 1 0 0 0 1 0 20-13 4.13
    J Grilli 1.0 0 0 0 1 1 0 19-10 5.64
    B Seay 1.0 1 0 0 0 1 0 13-9 2.97
    F Rodney 2.0 1 0 0 1 3 0 30-17 4.10
    C Durbin 1.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 16-10 4.68

  1647. Adam August 25th, 2007 at 3:35 am

    Pin that one on Molina, not Henn, who hit his spot with a breaking ball. You’ve got to go up or out there, but not down and/or in, and sure as hell not both. Poor selection.

  1648. Vinny 5743 August 25th, 2007 at 3:35 am

    Well, we lost the first game of the last series with the Tigers last week too so I’m not all that upset. We can still pull off a series win. Better times ahead. G’night all.

  1649. wiki August 25th, 2007 at 3:35 am

    WORST LOSS EVER. BYE BYE SEAN HENN

  1650. Dean August 25th, 2007 at 3:36 am

    Sean Henn sucks, demote him already, he is AA material at best

  1651. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:36 am

    no the only 2nd guessing has been going on for months, where is CHris Britton??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    ask cash and torre why no Britton..

    NEWSFLASH hENN sucks….I did not see it because of direct tv but I can imagine..

    HOW many terrible losses will this team have?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    There is no 2nd guessing on Britton the guy pitched 5 innings up here all yr……….he pitched decent in garbage time. last yr he pitched well for baltimore. he has pitched well in SWB..

    INSANITY IS EXPECTED DIFFERENT RESULTS AFTER DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER….

    SHOULD have just lost the game in regualtion and save the pen. with joba rules and kyle the pansie who is in the pen manana??

    Mariano threw 25 pitches he could not throw another inning. only the clutch yankees make the tiger pen look good.

  1652. Mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 3:36 am

    Looks like Yankmee is still alive. I wish nothing but ill for you, your family and and children you might have in the future.

  1653. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:37 am

    How bad can sean henn be? how do you blow two games in a row? if he isnt dfad tomorrow i will be amazed. there is no way that guy deserves to be on a major league roster. i don’t even care if they don’t bring up britton anymore they need to get rid of sean henn, t. his guy has now cost us two games and got shelled in one in between.

  1654. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:38 am

    Peter ask the braintrust(used lightly) where is Britton?????

    Did he do something to Torre, not bow at his feet, what????????????????????????????

    the moves in the pen tonight were fine, they ran out of guys who can get people out.. They have 2 nothings left in the pen..

  1655. Pete Feng August 25th, 2007 at 3:38 am

    Now, let’s win the next three just like what we did last time.

  1656. Sad fan August 25th, 2007 at 3:39 am

    This game is one of the worst regular season Yankee game I’ve ever watched. (im 57 years old).

  1657. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:39 am

    I would feel pretty cool if i stayed up till 3:30 hoping someone’s team lost so i could laugh at them, maybe his friends are just busy this weekend?

  1658. Kyle August 25th, 2007 at 3:39 am

    I would have left Mo in there. Granted the score was still tied, but Henn over Mo?? I dont know.. I know Mo has been inconsistent as of late but still.

  1659. EY August 25th, 2007 at 3:40 am

    This game looked awfully like Monday’s game against Angels. Sigh. I don’t want to see anymore of “Joe’s Veterans” not named Viz or Rivera. DFA Henn and bring up Britton!

  1660. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:40 am

    henn does not have to b eDFA’s that is the beauty just put him in SWB….

    PETER please ask about Britton, I do not think it is a unusual question or unreasonable.. they have 2 stiffs in the pen, and 2 guys with pitch limitations(kyle nad Joba) so they cannot have any stiffs out there..

    2 terrible losses this week if they had a more complete pen and some cluthc hitting maybe it would have been different……..

  1661. Michael August 25th, 2007 at 3:41 am

    As usual, we get our best relief work in a frustrating 1-run loss. 5 innings of zeroes til Henn.

  1662. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:42 am

    Mo was done, over 25 pitch’s no way.. agaqin if they had Britton at least they had a chance…..

    they do not trust either of these losers Bruney(yes he is better then VIllone) and Henn is a joke.. you have to man up…

    no clutch hitting from the yanks the leadoff hitter on base 3 staright innings and nothing……

  1663. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:44 am

    do not respond to yankmee he is probably a 18 yr old zit infested, loser, who eats tv dinners in his basement watching pornos…

  1664. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:44 am

    Best we can do now is a split with Mussina/Verlander on Monday.

    Four games behind Seattle in the loss column. Every game is important Kay not just the games against contenders.

    Can’t believe they made the Sweater stay in the studio til 4am. Can there be a worse sportscaster in history?

  1665. Mehdi August 25th, 2007 at 3:44 am

    It’s not meant to be nice Yankmee. Go to bed now before your mom finds out you’re up this late.

    Come on the Arsenal.

  1666. I hate Krazy Kyle August 25th, 2007 at 3:44 am

    I think this loss seals the deal for the Yankees. The Red Sox very well could be in position to drive the final nails in the Yankee coffin…and no one is to blame but an organization that has been so reluctant to put the best players on the field. Awful.

  1667. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:44 am

    sick, i guess all of you guys are just that sweet

  1668. CA Yanks Fan August 25th, 2007 at 3:45 am

    Great, emptied the pen in a loss ending at 3:30 in the morning. Please let the good Wang show up tomorrow, not his evil twin that’s been posing as him for the past month. Wang, get us 8 innings tomorrow.

  1669. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:45 am

    no let’s discuss Arod’s contract now and how to get more offense at 1B after another killer loss. at least it will not show up as a 1 run loss because you know our record in those games..

    PETER ASK ABOUT BRITTON. DO they need to put an APB out on him?????????????????????

  1670. Dionysus (nice Sox fan) August 25th, 2007 at 3:45 am

    Its a tough loss for Yanks. A win for me, to be sure.. but frankly the Yansk should never have been put in this position. They played their heartout, but their Loss styarted way back when officials decided to play the damn game at all. Even had they won, they still lose.. as the Tigers have lost.

  1671. I hate Krazy Kyle August 25th, 2007 at 3:46 am

    If I was Arod, I would try to opt out now.

  1674. Joey_V August 25th, 2007 at 3:47 am

    You should blame Henn when he gives up 1 walk, 3 hits, 3 runs in 2/3 innings and Molina picked off a runner. That’s why his ERA was 5.23 going into the game. Rats! Do we have any lefties available, aside from Igawa, that can throw strikes and get through an inning without allowing a single run?

  1675. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:48 am

    clemens didn’t get the job done either, 5 scoreless innings by our bullpen to waste

  1676. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:49 am

    baseball is a joke a game a 3 am,.. Davidson is a joke ump.. waving off Jorge(Of course he got pissed off) making bad calls left and right..

    that i right barnett apologized for the bloomquist call all is OK, becuase he apologized………….

    I do not know a reporter in NY who asks relevant questions not the sizzle questions. like where is Britton? Do you have any young arms down on the farm that can help?

  1677. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 3:50 am

    those umpires need to get dfad too, or killed, or something like that, they just can’t ever officiate a yankees game again

  1678. Stuart August 25th, 2007 at 3:51 am

    who cares about lefty righty, that is nonsense.. joba looks alright against lefties..

    get guys who can throw strikes……………..

    WHERE IS BRITTON???????????

  1679. Lawnmower August 25th, 2007 at 3:53 am

    This loss will stick to your ribs.

    Sean – it’s a 5 hour drive to Buffalo for tommorrow’s SWB game. Get a good night’s sleep and then hit the road.

  1680. Ivan August 25th, 2007 at 3:55 am

    Yeah… i am still reading.. and i feel pissed cause we lost a tough one…

  1681. Alvin August 25th, 2007 at 3:56 am

    Well I really don’t think we have a shot at Boston unless we go 5-1 or so in the head to head games, or if we go 4-2 AND they really choke up.

    But I still say we pass Seattle eventually. They aren’t this good by far, and there’s no way they’ll play .750 baseball for the remaining 40 something games.

  1682. 'Could be 3 GB of Seattle August 25th, 2007 at 3:59 am

    What did I tell you people way back around 10pm? That IDIOTIC double-steal with A-Rod up would be the deciding factor, and it was. He could’ve hit a 3-run shot or drove in a run or two and then the game isn’t in extra innings most likely. That was what cost the Yanks the game right there cuz you don’t make stupid mistakes like that against a struggling but still postseason-competitive Detroit.

    I will say that Henn should be sent back to AAA or d.f.a. This has to be it for him. People get on Villone but you know what? I’d have rather had Villone in there then Henn if no one else could be brought in or another lefty had to be in there, that’s how badly Henn su cks. Henn suc ked the minute he returned in a Yankee uniform cuz he got calledup only cuz Myers suc ked so badly.

    Second-guessing? No, I thought it was ridiculous that Ramirez, Chamberlain, Farnsworth, or Vizcaino who pitched an effective inning each couldn’t go 2 IP after an off-day. What was this “let’sgive everyone an inning of work night?” Last I checked Seattle had won their game vs. putrid Texas -looks like Torre didn’t. Torre’s typical idiotic bullpen management cost the Yanks the game because if he has any of those four pitch 2 innings (you want to say save Chamberlain cuz of the rules for his use, fine, one of 3 guys), we don’t see Mr.Automatic Loss in the final frame, I mean Henn should not be in a Yankee uniform. He really gave up the game before Guillen’s homerun cuz the Yanks caught Polanco napping off 1B (no Polanco brainlock, Ordonez’s blooper wins the game).

    It’s time we faced the fact that at 2-4 in their last 6, 4-6 in their last 10 games, 6-6 in their last 12, and 8-7 in their last 15 (after 6-1 vs. K.C. and Chicago who are let’s face it, the dregs of the A.L. this year besides T.B.) which means they’ve been progressively playing worse, maybe this Yankee team isn’t postseason worthy. They’re 3 games back of Seattle and do you honestly beleive they’re winning the next 3 vs. Detroit again with Mussina and the mostly ineffective Hughes starting after Wang? And Wang hasn’t been Mr. Automatically Solid lately. I see 2-1 and we can only hope Texas takes the next 2 so the Yanks are 1.5 games back going back to N.Y. to face Boston (assuming an off-day for Seattle Mon.)

    I don’t want to hear about the Yanks catching Boston from any of you, not at 6.5 back cuz guess what? Boston isn’t getting swept at Yankee Stadium and they will probably be 4.5 games ahead of the Yanks at worst going into N.Y. Let’s say the Yanks are 5.5 games behind Boston going into the series with them Tues. All Boston has to do is win a game and they leave N.Y. still up a healthy 4.5 games with the Yanks having only 27 games left to play. If Boston holds at 6.5 ahead going into Tuesday, that series is meaningless as far as the division race is concerned. They sweep the Yanks, the Yanks season could be over after 9/30. They take 2 of 3 and leave with a 7.5 lead, they’ll win the division.

  1683. Joey_V August 25th, 2007 at 3:59 am

    Stuart: Last time I checked, every single team that’s in first place or in the wild card hunt has at least 1 decent lefty in the bullpen. So, if it’s “nonsense” as you say, all those GMs and Teams are wrong. The Yankees don’t have 1 that is decent. That’s not good. Goodnight!

  1684. diggedy August 25th, 2007 at 4:02 am

    Posting from the crackberry.Flew out to detroit to visit my gf’s family. Went to the game tonight. What a frigging adventure. Wore my donnie baseball jersey. Fans treated me a lot better than they treated my gf at game 1 last year. This was one of those “great” games that was actually fairly sloppy in hindsight.I have never, nor do I think anyone, has ever dealt with a rain delay like that. How, on the east coast, do you START the game at 11pm.
    All I have to say is this : this game was not sean henns fault. However, at 4am driving home, I have decided to give sean a nickname. From this point forward, sean henn is “The White Flag”. He comes in, you know torre has thrown in the towel. Night

  1685. PBL August 25th, 2007 at 4:04 am

    id rather have 5 decent rightys and bruney than 4 decent rightys bruney and henn

  1686. 'Could be 3 GB of Seattle August 25th, 2007 at 4:09 am

    Oh b.t.w. the Joba rules have to end after tomorrow i.e. he gets his rest then, pitches Sun. then is available for any 2 games vs. Boston incl. back-to-back if needed. This is the Yanks vs. Boston, not Scranton vs. Toledo, o.k? I seriously doubt Joba will get hurt pitching back-to-back games once. You people are wayyyy too paranoid about the guy. He already is
    in danger of getting hurt by being a bullpen guy (real simple:
    way more games he’s in relative to the amount of games a starter is in, way more chances to get hurt even on fielding plays -what if he tears a hamstring like Hughes did?)

  1687. Gary August 25th, 2007 at 8:16 am

    There’s 7 more games before September 1st. The Yankees can’t afford to wait until then to call up Chris Britton and send Henn down.

  1688. DCJim August 25th, 2007 at 8:58 am

    The Yankees have no one to follow Rivera in extra innings except Henn. This pitch-one-inning-and-done is not working out so well. Maybe Mussina can help out the bullpen.

    Extra innings are a nightmare for the Yankees.

  1689. WebmistressEMC August 25th, 2007 at 1:28 pm

    Alvin said a few comments up, above: “But I still say we pass Seattle eventually. They aren’t this good by far, and there’s no way they’ll play .750 baseball for the remaining 40 something games.”

    The Mariners don’t have to, Alvin.

    21 wins out of the last 36 they have to play is .583 ball, and that gets them to 94W…MAYBE enough for the WC. For 95 wins, they have to play at a .611 rate.

    It’s the Yanks who have to play at a .676 rate from here on to = 94 wins, and a .706 rate to = 95 wins.

    Those head-to-head games with the Red Sox will, indeed, be crucial.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
