Game 85: Rangers at Yankees

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Jul 02, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

YANKEES (44-40)
Damon LF
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
Rodriguez 3B
Giambi DH
Posada C
Cano 2B
Betemit 1B
Gardner CF
Ponson RHP

Sir Sidney Ponson (5-1, 3.50) vs. the Texas hitters.

RHP Luis Mendoza (1-2, 5.40) has never faced any of the Yankees.

Notes: Thanks to Brian Heyman for calling in the lineup. … Melky was 0 for 19 and has one RBI since June 17. Gardner is 0 for 6 with two strikeouts since coming up. Now would be a good time to start getting on base. Ninth might be a perfect spot for him. … The Yankees have lost seven of 11 and four of six. … Dan Giese as a reliever: 5 games, 9.1 innings, 7 hits, 1 run, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts. … Dave Robertson has thrown 78 pitches in his four innings of relief, 50 of them strikes. Decent ratio, lots of pitches… Betemit (6 of his last 17, four runs, two RBI) has been less helpless of late at the plate.

SUBTERRANEAN HOMESICK OFFENSIVE BLUES
The Yankees have scored seven runs in their last four games. They are 22 of 133 at the plate (.165) with 10 walks and 35 strikeouts. That includes going 5 of 32 with RISP, which has resulted in 25 LOB.

THE SIR SIDNEY SIDELIGHT
This game marks the reunion of Sidney Ponson and the Rangers, who released him in early June for conduct unbecoming a Ranger. In an unusual move. GM Jon Daniels and manager Ron Washington spoke about how selfish and self-centered Ponson was. Rumors had him confronting Washington and other players and getting rowdy in bars.

“I got nothing bad to say about Sidney,” Washington told Texas writers. “We all know Sidney can pitch. Sidney’s got his own problems, and he just didn’t fit in Texas. Maybe he’ll chill out over there, maybe they can keep him calm or do whatever they have to do.”

UPDATE, 6:10 p.m.: Shelley Duncan (shoulder) and Alan Horne (arm) were placed on the DL at Scranton. Chris Stewart cleared waivers and is back with the team.

UPDATE, 7:47 p.m.: Sir Sidney had thrown eight scoreless innings before the third inning. The Yankees are down 3-1, which may as well be 30-1 the way they are hitting lately. But they do have seven innings to show a pulse. The current panic aside, they aren’t that bad, are they?

UPDATE, 8:05 p.m.: Ah, of course, the ‘stache delivers the big blow with an upper-deck grand slam. The Yankees really needed that. Question now is whether they can hold a 5-3 lead.

UPDATE, 8:55 p.m.: Sir Sidney has put eight men on base in five innings. This is probably the last inning for him. Then you go Veras, Krazy Kyle and Mo to nail it down. You can’t mess around with this game, they need it badly.

UPDATE, 8:59 p.m.: Nobody warming up behind Ponson in the sixth inning with the middle of the lineup coming up?

UPDATE, 9:03 p.m.: How could you not trust Sidney Ponson? Just because he’s been released by every team other than the Rockford Peaches is no reason not to leave the game in his hands. It’s astonishing that the Yankees didn’t have somebody warming up at the start of the inning.

UPDATE, 9:27 p.m.: Teams go through offensive slumps, it happens a few times every season and there is no good reason for it. The difference with this Yankees team compared to previous editions is that they do not grind through those games and figure out a way to win.

UPDATE, 9:37 p.m.: Great job by Edwar Ramirez (2 0 0 0 1 3). Too bad he wasn’t in the game two batters earlier.

UPDATE, 9:43 p.m.: The Yankees have been stupid lucky in this game and will win it. Texas has allowed five unearned runs and is now trotting out some guy to make his debut in the seventh inning of a one-run game?

UPDATE, 9:50 p.m.: Like I said. Washington should be ashamed of himself.

UPDATE, 9:53 p.m.: Amazing. You bring a rookie into his first game at Yankee Stadium to protect a one-run lead in the seventh inning against Abreu, A-Rod and Giambi? Remember this game. If they go on some sort of tear now, they can thank Texas.

UPDATE, 9:57 p.m.: Good for Brett Gardner. He had been 0 for 8 before that RBI single. Meanwhile Washington just noticed the Rangers were down by four runs and made a pitching change.

UPDATE, 10:10 p.m.: Hank Steinbrenner is a genius and the Yankees are 2-0 in games started by Sir Sidney. All’s well that ends well.

UPDATE, 10:17 p.m.: 15-7 lead and Krazy Kyle walks the first guy. This isn’t over yet.

UPDATE, 10:23 p.m.: Whew, inning over.

    Why is Betemit playing 1B over Posada….

    Thank GOD Melky is benched.

  2. Tint July 2nd, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    Nice to see Melky FINALLY out of the lineup. Gardner will have a big game today.

  3. Jason July 2nd, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Melky must be injured….jk….

  4. Carl Pavano July 2nd, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Would you all rather it was me pitching, or Ponson or Rasner?

    Be honest!

  5. Eugie July 2nd, 2008 at 3:55 pm

    Too bad we couldn’t give the manager a day off too.

  6. Tiki July 2nd, 2008 at 3:55 pm

    Why did Michael Kay just say that Jorge is not catching – Jose is?

  7. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 3:55 pm

    from… I don’t know, 5 threads ago:

    “Ponson is no savoir”

    Talk about speaking in tongues.

    Ponson may not be savoir, but might be a savant.

  8. mark July 2nd, 2008 at 3:57 pm

    thrilled melky is out.

  9. frits July 2nd, 2008 at 3:58 pm

    wow…gardner, here’s your chance…

  10. Matt July 2nd, 2008 at 3:59 pm

    Why is Jorge still catching? He cant throw, whats gonna happen when ellsbury and then the rays face him? they need to fix this. he should be a team player and play 1b.

    hopefully a couple days off will do melky good

    http://newyorkyankeesnews.com/maelias33/weblog/

  11. Web July 2nd, 2008 at 3:59 pm

    I feel for Melky but this had to happen at some point.

  12. Dan from upstate July 2nd, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    Alright now maybe a few days off and the increased competition from Gardner will light a flame under Melky’s @ss and he’ll start hitting

  13. YankeesTech July 2nd, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    How are Joe Torre’s Dodgers doing ? lol Face it, Every manag

  14. Chris NY July 2nd, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    From Joe G “Melky is our centerfielder.”

    So relax Melky haters, he’s just getting a day off. For now……

  15. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:01 pm

    “wow…gardner, here’s your chance…”

    And his other two days that he’s been in the lineup were what?

  16. j July 2nd, 2008 at 4:02 pm

    i figure betimeit has great game. he faces a right hand sinker baller, and he has great power to left center.

  17. frits July 2nd, 2008 at 4:03 pm

    raymag – filling in for a hobbled damon/matsui is one thing…taking melky’s spot in CF is another. not saying its monumental, but certainly a step up in that he’s replacing melky for the day.

  18. pat July 2nd, 2008 at 4:03 pm

    lets watch gardner go 0 fer, get run on but do somethingvery very quickly and capivate the uneducated masses some more. u saw joe have faith in moose and let him pitch to manny and now hes doing well perhaps, just perhaps he was doing the same thing with young melkman. probably too much for most of you to understand. I apologize.

  19. Matt July 2nd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    everyone is quick to jump on melky’s back, he is 23 their 9 hitter. he isnt the reason the team is losing, until last night not bunting he hasnt hurt the team, he usually comes through for them when needed.

    i do think they need to see what bret gardner can do and this is his shot. if he has a good weekend we may have seen the last of melky or he may prove to be nothing more then a good aaa player. lets see.

  20. Adam July 2nd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    Just read on a website that it’s A-Rod who is being cheated on. His wife left him for Lenny Kravitz. Great. More distractions and more excuses.

  21. Chris NY July 2nd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    “he should be a team player and play 1b.”

    Jorge doesn’t make the lineup. Jose also can’t catch everyday. He’s not exactly a physical specimen himself. He got hurt when he played everyday for too long.

    “And his other two days that he’s been in the lineup were what?”

    LOL.

  22. TKinDC July 2nd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    “Why is Betemit playing 1B over Posada….”

    Jorge made it pretty clear that he doesn’t want to play first base, but he will do it occasionally if the team requires it.

    He has never been that great at throwing anyway (except for the first couple of years that Tony Pena worked with him)

  23. Boston Dave July 2nd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    This is probably the only Yankees game I’ll get to this season (with the best seats I’ve ever had) so they better win.

    FYI – Yanks are 6-2 in my last 8 appearances.

    C’mon Ponsanity!

  24. f bonadonna July 2nd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    abreu and giambi need to stop swinging at bad pitches. the kid in cf will have 3 stolen bases to nite..

  25. 89 July 2nd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    How much does Girardi love Betemit??

  26. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    “raymag – filling in for a hobbled damon/matsui is one thing…taking melky’s spot in CF is another. not saying its monumental, but certainly a step up in that he’s replacing melky for the day.”

    He replaced Damon in left for 2 days. Honestly there is no difference.

  27. Boston Dave July 2nd, 2008 at 4:07 pm

    “Dave Robertson has thrown 78 pitches in his four innings of relief, only 50 of them strikes”

    Pete, Is that a bad ratio?

  28. MELKY IS DEAD July 2nd, 2008 at 4:07 pm

    melky finally gets his wish to chill on the bench

  29. Matt July 2nd, 2008 at 4:08 pm

    betemit has been swinging a good bat and has been above avg defensively it is good that he spell guys every now and then.

    with three catchers on the roster no reason for posada to catch except maybe one or twice a week if a certain pitcher wants him to catch. he cant throw and teams test him every chance.

    http://newyorkyankeesnews.com/maelias33/weblog/

  30. 86w183 July 2nd, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    Is it time to start scouring the potential free agent catchers for 2009? Jorge’s contract may end up being the second largest albatross in recent years. It won’t rank with Carl Pa-guano, but three more years at $ 13 mill for an aging catcher scares me… and it’s not my money!

  31. Chris NY July 2nd, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    “taking melky’s spot in CF is another”

    He didn’t take anything, he’s filling in and his defense isn’t going to be any better than Melky’s. His bat, we’ll see. But that worm burner he threw from left to second yesterday should calm some people down about his defense.

    I love the guy’s speed and if he can get on base consistently, he’d be great to have in LEFT field. Unfortunately, his bat won’t replace Johnny’s either. So unless Melky stays this bad with the bat, or Matsui stays out a while longer, Gardner might be out of luck in terms of a starting spot.

  32. Matt July 2nd, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    melky is getting a day off, he played almost every game if not every game. he is tired. he plays a demanding position and i am sure his lack of hitting is getting to him. he just needs a couple days off.

    he has shown glimpses of what he can be, he was arguably their best player in May, when he showed that he had a shot of being a bernie williams type of player. lets be easy with crushing him, he is only 23

  33. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    Come Gardner, step it up tonight.

    An 0fer will just convince Girardi to put Mely right back out there tomorrow.

  34. Ben K. July 2nd, 2008 at 4:11 pm

    “Dave Robertson has thrown 78 pitches in his four innings of relief, only 50 of them strikes.”

    That use of “only” is a bit misleading. He’s throwing 64 percent of his pitches for strikes. That’s right in line with everyone else.

  35. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:11 pm

    “Is it time to start scouring the potential free agent catchers for 2009? ”

    I don’t think so. He’ll have shoulder surgery and be fine I think. As long as he can still hit I can live with him playing injured for the rest of the year.

  36. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    when he showed that he had a shot of being a bernie williams type of player

    HAHAHA

    Show some respect to BErnie. Comparing him to Melky?

  37. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    “Come Gardner, step it up tonight.

    An 0fer will just convince Girardi to put Mely right back out there tomorrow.”

    And what should Girardi do? Keep playing Gardner if he goes 0 for 50?

  38. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    RHP Luis Mendoza (1-2, 5.40) has never faced any of the Yankees.

    I smell a shutout.

  39. frits July 2nd, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    OK raymag – you win! congratulations! you proved that there is no difference. send me your email address so i can email my thoughts to you before airing them publicly. i need a fact-checker.

    i should know better than to post on this when we’re losers of 3 straight. people get so pissy!

    peace out!

  40. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    I don’t know how Melky’s May numbers were but I know that he basically carried us through April

  41. DLev July 2nd, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    Sixty four percent strikes isn’t bad. Certainly not worth knocking. Unless Pete’s upset that Edwar has pitched well his last couple of times out, and needs someone new to pick on.

  42. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:15 pm

    Frits,

    I am not being pissy. I just don’t think there’s any difference with him playing CF than him playing LF the past two days.

    My attitude doesn’t change based on how the Yankees play. We’re just having a conversation, that’s all.

  43. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:15 pm

    And what should Girardi do? Keep playing Gardner if he goes 0 for 50?

    How did you turn an 0-4 into an 0-50?

    He’s been willing to keep putting Melky out there while he has done nothing, so he should give Gardner a fair shake and not just a game or two was my point.

  44. Wave Your Hat July 2nd, 2008 at 4:15 pm

    “Is it time to start scouring the potential free agent catchers for 2009? ”

    “I don’t think so. He’ll have shoulder surgery and be fine I think. As long as he can still hit I can live with him playing injured for the rest of the year.”

    I don’t see any free agent catchers which are a good option for 2009, or 2010 for that matter.

    Jorge is our catcher for the short and medium term, pretty much no matter what. Let’s hope his shoulder will be OK.

  45. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 4:16 pm

    “Outside distractions? What would those be?”

    Media :) :) :)

  46. Bombshell July 2nd, 2008 at 4:16 pm

    “he has shown glimpses of what he can be, he was arguably their best player in May, when he showed that he had a shot of being a bernie williams type of player.”

    Wow…you’re honestly trying to compare 23-year old .240 Melky to a future hall of famer and Yankee legend. When Melky hits .350 wins 4 rings and a batting title then come back and talk about this comparison.

  47. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:17 pm

    “Outside distractions? What would those be?”

    It’s the ice cream freezer. Get it the hell back out of there!

  48. Chris NY July 2nd, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    “three more years at $ 13 mill”

    13 million is hardly an albatross to the Yankees and as long as Jorge keeps hitting, he’s worth that much as a DH/1B. And he won’t be that, he’ll have the surgery on his shoulder and more than likely be fine catching next year. I know you qualified with “not as bad” as Pavano, but Jorge could never catch again and still be worth $13M for his bat, a far, FAR cry from $10M a year for ZERO production.

  49. Ben K. July 2nd, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    “he has shown glimpses of what he can be, he was arguably their best player in May,”

    Melky hit .234/.270/.319 in May. Over his last 203 plate appearances, he’s hitting .212/.274/.255. That’s just flat-out terrible.

  50. Wave Your Hat July 2nd, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    I think I heard Girardi say the other day that if Gardner didn’t hit, he wouldn’t play, and if he doesn’t play, he’ll go back to the minors. Girardi didn’t say how long he would give him to show whether in can hit in the majors.

  51. Eugie July 2nd, 2008 at 4:20 pm

    “I don’t know how Melky’s May numbers were but I know that he basically carried us through April”

    Not really. He hit .299 in April, .234 in May and .206 in June.

  52. a July 2nd, 2008 at 4:20 pm

    on http://sportsnynj.blogspot.com/
    there is a good post about the yankees

  53. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:22 pm

    “he has shown glimpses of what he can be, he was arguably their best player in May,”

    Melky hit .234/.270/.319 in May. Over his last 203 plate appearances, he’s hitting .212/.274/.255. That’s just flat-out terrible.

    Yeah, I have never understood where all the Melky love came from.

    He’s just not that good of a player.

  54. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    According to my mother, who is a very valuable source of information in these things, Cynthia has left Alex for Lenny Kravitz.

    Uh, yeah. I’m slow to believe it, but who knows?

  55. stefan July 2nd, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    “Dave Robertson has thrown 78 pitches in his four innings of relief, only 50 of them strikes.”

    ::blinks in confusion::

  56. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    “How did you turn an 0-4 into an 0-50?

    He’s been willing to keep putting Melky out there while he has done nothing, so he should give Gardner a fair shake and not just a game or two was my point.”

    I didn’t turn 0-4 until 0-50, my point is how long should he be given to start showing something?

    “Melky hit .234/.270/.319 in May.”

    I think he meant April. I’m pretty sure that’s what he meant.

  57. Patrickâ„¢ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:24 pm

    This is the best lineup we can put out there at the moment IMO. I’d give Gardner tonight and the Red Sox series to start hitting. After that its back to AAA with him.

  58. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:24 pm

    “Dave Robertson has thrown 78 pitches in his four innings of relief, only 50 of them strikes.”

    Why hasn’t he thrown 70 strikes out of 78 pitches? I mean a 2 to 1 strike to ball ratio is terrible.

  59. Number 27 July 2nd, 2008 at 4:27 pm

    “Outside distractions? What would those be?”

    i kind of think he meant madonna. which would be hilarious.

  60. Matt July 2nd, 2008 at 4:27 pm

    your looking at just Batting Average, look at when he got his hits and how he was driving in runs. heck he led the team in hr’s for a while. right around when seattle came in a second time (sorry i dont have the schedule in front of me so maybe May was too general and after seeing those #’s i see i was wrong) he was carrying team.

    i didnt say he was bernie williams or would be, it looked like he had a chance of being a bernie williams type- a switch hitting centerfielder that the team can count on.

    he is still only 23, remember how all of you hated him and joked about him in his first call up in 2005. then what happened you loved him the last two yrs so now a bad couple months and you hate him again?

    It’s been fixed. Yes! The system works! :-P

  62. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    Melky must of had a rough night with Madonna.

  63. Andrew July 2nd, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    The line on Robertson was “Dave Robertson has thrown 78 pitches in his four innings of relief, 50 of them strikes.” This is a good ratio. Had the ‘only’ been before 50 it would have implied that this ratio is less than stellar.

  64. saucY July 2nd, 2008 at 4:31 pm

    And, what more, she already has another man!

    “Cynthia has been seeing Lenny Kravitz,” an insider reveals exclusively to us.

    In fact, a source tells us that Cynthia has left her kids in Miami to go on a romantic getaway with Lenny in Paris, where the two are currently holed up.

    obviously i meant hank was targeting arod. i doubt hank would target a player like melky when he could go after arod.

    not saying its deserved. just seems like its right up hank’s alley.

  67. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 4:32 pm

    Rebecca-

    does you mom work for US Weekly?

  68. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    I’m curious, does anyone know how old Melky is?

  69. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 4:36 pm

    “Maybe it’s aimed at the untouchable one….the day after being announced as the new Gillette Guy….he’s not in the lineup….just a thought”

    That is a good one.
    Hank obviously is refering to this kind of things.
    Once George also said the same about Jeter.

  70. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Melky is 48

  71. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Did somebody here really just link Perezhilton?

    Wow.

    Sad.

  72. jennifer July 2nd, 2008 at 4:38 pm

    Alex better get C-rod back to NY. Enough of these garbage rumors.

  73. Bob(the original) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    “Maybe it’s aimed at the untouchable one….the day after being announced as the new Gillette Guy….he’s not in the lineup….just a thought”

    That is a good one.
    Hank obviously is refering to this kind of things.
    Once George also said the same about Jeter.

    Now they’ll turn it into a commercial with Jeter showing up unshaven after a late night and Hank giving him a Gillete razor and telling him to go shave.

  74. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    I do not think Hank is targeting A-Rod.
    Arod is probalby hitting the best on the team during this miserable offense.
    There is a good chance it is against Jeter, given his ads pulicity.

  75. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    Mark: No, she just has a celebrity obsession thing.

  76. Nick the Saint July 2nd, 2008 at 4:41 pm

    A-Rod is the only one driving in any runs. Maybe melky should start getting with Madonna.

  77. Scott July 2nd, 2008 at 4:41 pm

    Lighten up, folks. Nobody said “Melky is as good as Bernie Williams was.” Bernie (my favorite 1990s Yankee) didn’t do anything particularly special until he was 25 or 26. He didn’t establish himself as a regular until he was 24.

    At 21, Melky was a good starting CF. At 21, Bernie was a very good starting CF… in AA. At 22, Melky regressed. I was hoping it was a consolidation year, but that’s looking less likely. Still, as a 22 year old, he played a full MLB season as a starting CF and wasn’t a liability. Find me some guys who did that, and you’ll be finding me some Hall of Famers and some Cesar Cedenos.

    I’m hoping Melky lands in between. It is NOT ridiculous to say he has a shot to be a Bernie-type player. A shot.

    “I’m curious, does anyone know how old Melky is?”

    and does the Melk have an expiration date ? ;)

  79. Jorge Tabata July 2nd, 2008 at 4:42 pm

    chad moller is a better hitter than molina.

  80. Bryan (Yankees fan) July 2nd, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    12-0 Rangers for the sweep

    Heard it here first

  81. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 4:45 pm

    Wow, Cynitha and Lenny!

    You go Girl!

  82. jennifer July 2nd, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    Do I smell a Barbara Walters special. Alex and C-rod showing how happy they are together?

    Geez someone really hates both of them.

  83. pat July 2nd, 2008 at 4:47 pm

    Lenny Kravitz has the same agent as A-Rod and Madonna too. This guy must throw some interesting parties.

  84. Jorge Steinbrenner July 2nd, 2008 at 4:47 pm

    If Madonna were to get naked in front of Melky Cabrera, I think he’d crawl into the fetal position immediately…or he’d give her some “oye mami, ven pa’ca” line which would either really turn her on or off. who knows.

    Other than that, nothing else to say. I refuse to get into any Melky/Gardner, Sabathia, or whatever else wars for the next….ten minutes or so.

  85. Jeter2007 July 2nd, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    we need a win today

    we have tough games after this…
    4 vs bos
    2 vs tb
    1 at pit
    3 at tor

    let’s see what we’re made of. 3 of the better pitching clubs are coming up

  86. murphydog July 2nd, 2008 at 4:49 pm

    Lenny Kravitz?

    No. C’mon. Seriously? Lenny Kravitz?

  87. jennifer July 2nd, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    How funny would it be if she was at the stadium today, it would prove the article was bogus.

  88. murphydog July 2nd, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    “Geez someone really hates both of them.”

    Probably a lot of somebodies. But, one would think that A-Rod’s experience in Toronto had taught him that he’s really not invisible.

  89. t July 2nd, 2008 at 4:52 pm

    On a much lighter note – anyone seen the sportscenter commercial with Posada? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWYaJmO5plw

  90. tim boat July 2nd, 2008 at 4:52 pm

    SWEEP

  91. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 4:53 pm

    What’s wrong with Lenny Kravitz? I thought women thought he was a hearthrob, no?

  92. Nick the Saint July 2nd, 2008 at 4:53 pm

    Don’t ever embarrass yourself and refer to Posada’s contract as an albatross.

    Especially when he can still hit.

    Next time if you refer to an albatross contract look towards SF or find Pavano.

  93. Matt July 2nd, 2008 at 4:54 pm

    10 games till break whats a realistic goal for the rest of schedule:
    2-2 vs boston
    1-1 vs tampa
    1-0 pitt
    2-1 toronto

    How does 6-4 sound? anything else is superb anything worse and the ship will be sinking fast

    http://newyorkyankeesnews.com/maelias33/weblog/

  94. 89 July 2nd, 2008 at 4:55 pm

    I hate when people come on here and link to their own sub-par blogs.

  95. murphydog July 2nd, 2008 at 4:56 pm

    “What’s wrong with Lenny Kravitz? I thought women thought he was a hearthrob, no?”

    Hey… maybe so. I’m not knocking Lenny’s ability to get with the ladies. I’m just thinking about his music…

  96. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 4:56 pm

    This is all a smokescreen to cover up the smoldering romance between Madonna and Lenny Kravitz.

  97. Skinny Mike July 2nd, 2008 at 4:57 pm

    If the Yanks don’t win tonight I am going to jump!

  98. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 4:58 pm

    Maybe you weren’t watching the Yankees in April, don’t rely solely on Melky’s BA, he was fantastic

  99. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    Women love Lenny Kravitz

  100. Nick the Saint July 2nd, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    How far fetched is it for Madonna and A-Rod to be friends?

    Not like they have the same manager or anything and both reside in Miami.

  101. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    “Hey… maybe so. I’m not knocking Lenny’s ability to get with the ladies. I’m just thinking about his music…”

    Oh yeah, his music is definitely subpar.

  102. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    The A-Rod/Madonna romance makes sesne to me, Alex is notorious for loving very “muscular” women

  103. Jorge Steinbrenner July 2nd, 2008 at 5:01 pm

    I heard Lenny Kravitz is a lot like a third-rate Jimi Hendrix in bed.

  104. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 5:02 pm

    Melky needs to take Gardner aside and ask him this:

    Are you gonna go my way?

  105. al arodien July 2nd, 2008 at 5:03 pm

    Madonna and A-Rod and Lenny Kravitz have the same pr guy with the name Guy Oseary! So what is going on is he messing with his clients or is somebody messing with him because all 3 are his clients so i dont buy the story!

  106. murphydog July 2nd, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    “I heard Lenny Kravitz is a lot like a third-rate Jimi Hendrix in bed.”

    He’s a third rate Hendrix on stage too. (I take my guitar stylings pretty seriously).

  107. pat July 2nd, 2008 at 5:07 pm

    Do you think Boras has anything to do with these rumors? :smile:

  108. al arodien July 2nd, 2008 at 5:10 pm

    wow this could be true boras trying to burry arod!

  109. Jorge Steinbrenner July 2nd, 2008 at 5:10 pm

    Nick in SF: nice job on that one.

    I heard Brett Gardner once bagged Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan at the same time. He’s also going 5-5 tonight with 3 assists in CF.

  110. number18 July 2nd, 2008 at 5:10 pm

    no melky!
    thank goodness!

  111. Jorge Tabata July 2nd, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    Melky dating Martha Stewart?

  112. Jorge Steinbrenner July 2nd, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    Perez Hilton may report tonight that Scott Boras has secretly placed some sort of RISP-driver-reducer in Madonna’s ladyparts.

    can’t wait for this game to start… :)

  113. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 5:12 pm

    Watch for the concert or the fundraiser or something. There’s always something to sell when celebrities are involved in sudden rumors.

  114. Blargh July 2nd, 2008 at 5:13 pm

    But is bagging Lohan really all that impressive in the first?

  115. Blargh July 2nd, 2008 at 5:14 pm

    *in the first place

  116. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 5:15 pm

    From Trenton Thunder newsletter:

    “Trenton OF Austin Jackson, RHP Jason Jones, 1B Chris Malec and C P.J. Pilittere were named to play for the Northern Division All-Stars at the Northeast Delta Eastern League All-Star Game on Wednesday, July 16th. The mid-summer classic will be played at Merchantsauto.com Stadium in Manchester, NH. This is the first Eastern League All-Star game for all four players.”

    I was all excited, my hubby asked if I wanted to go to the Thunder game tomorrow night. I just checked for tix – standing room only!!!! (Well, there’s fireworks after the game, so what did I expect?!) I’m a spoiled brat, so I probably won’t go.

  117. mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:16 pm

    RHP Luis Mendoza (1-2, 5.40) has never faced any of the Yankees

    The kiss of death.

    Poor Ponson. Unless he pitches a no hitter and the defense commits no errors the Yankees track record would show we’re screwed.

  118. Francis The Praying Mantis July 2nd, 2008 at 5:17 pm

    If I were a millionaire professional athlete I would only bang girls that looked like carolina ardohain.

  119. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    Jorge,

    Dear god man! Lohan and Fox at the same time? Gardner’s like what, a buck ten? They all probably weigh about teh same.

  120. BBB July 2nd, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    “RHP Luis Mendoza (1-2, 5.40) has never faced any of the Yankees.”

    Why does this sentence look so ominous on my computer screen? Wait, don’t answer that…

    Hopefully they will break out of their current RISP abyss today. I’m going to see my favorite band and thus won’t get to watch the game until late tonight, but…may Ponsanity prevail!!! And hopefully Brett gets his first hit.

  121. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    Bagging Lindsay Lohan is the equivalent of actively pursuing STDs. No thanks.

  122. BBB July 2nd, 2008 at 5:20 pm

    Oh, and Lenny Kravitz? Not hot. Not a good musician, either.

  123. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    BBB,

    Yes, Kravitz is a no-talent-a$$-clown.

  124. defense matter July 2nd, 2008 at 5:26 pm

    the writing is on the wall look for melky and kennedy to be traded at somepoint this year… for what i don’t know hopefully more than a bag of ball

  125. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    isn’t Martha Stewart too old for Melky?

  126. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    “carolina ardohain”

    Frances is it safe for me to do a search of her at work?

  127. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    I am not sure who Hank is referring to, but I know this morning Max Kellerman on ESPN radio was talking about Melky hanging out in clubs and bars very often and how he needs to be reined in.

    I see the Yanks are facing a pitcher they have never seen before. That usually means it takes them at least one time through the order before they figure the pitcher out. I hope that’s not the case and they jump all over this guy.

  128. Francis The Praying Mantis July 2nd, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    Kravits get top notch punani, Cynthia Rodriguez is not close to his league….must give good brain.

  129. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    “the writing is on the wall look for melky and kennedy to be traded at somepoint this year”

    Is it really on the wall? Why would they trade either of those guys right now when their value is at its lowest?

  130. Francis The Praying Mantis July 2nd, 2008 at 5:29 pm

    ray, she is a model..from argentina…I would eat the blank right out of her blank.

    Yes, its safe to google her at work.

  131. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:30 pm

    ESPN is slamming debating ARod-Madonna on “Around the Horn”

    they take Doreen’s position that no cheating if ya got kids.

    party poopers.

  132. William Buckner July 2nd, 2008 at 5:30 pm

    Wow francis, you dont get that kind of info as an espn insider

  133. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    I told you Melky would get the day off. thought they would play Molina at catcher and DH Jorge but keeping Betemit in the lineup.. this is the best lineup when Hideki is out..

    WHo are you going to complain about today.. gardneer at $300k a yr. ot=r the zillionare who have not produced????

    Let Melky clear his head again clowns he is 24 give it some time my patient non panic strikin fans……..

  134. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    Wait, Francis…is there something going around about C-Rod and Kravitz? What is going on here?! We’ve gone from baseball to punani (not that I mind).

  135. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:34 pm

    Fran, they should have reigned his mediocre a$$ in long ago. They might try and do the same with CANOt hit.

  136. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:34 pm

    Francis

    I just googled your girl..she’s no Kim Kardashian

  137. William Buckner July 2nd, 2008 at 5:35 pm

    baseball to punani describes the way this team has been playing

  138. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 5:36 pm

    Kim Kardashian probably has more STDs than Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan and Jenna Jameson combined

  139. Raggety Arm July 2nd, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    Did anyone see Gardner’s twin brother in the stands last night. The YES network kept showing him. He got a couple of balls, some popcorn and was cheering like crazy.

  140. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    Melky made a big mistake when he went after Cynthia. No wonder he’s being benched.

  141. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    Buckner,

    Nicely put.

  142. Lou in socal July 2nd, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    thank God melky is benched.
    Stay on these babies HANK!! If the offense wants to hit .170 with RISP you should bark all you want.
    Hopefully this bullpen stays consistent doesn’t look to bad.

  143. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    Gardner’s twin brother? Ozzie was in town??????

  144. keith July 2nd, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    How dare you say a bad word about Megan Fox. Shame on you!

  145. William Buckner July 2nd, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    thank you mad prince. comments like that are the only way i’ll get thru this stretch

  146. bdog375 July 2nd, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    I see today as a lose-lose. If we lose the game then obviously the sweep at home to the Rangers will be very disappointing. But even if we win, losing this series on the heels of the Sox series is extremely frustrating.

    I do not know if I will even watch the game.

  147. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:40 pm

    Can we just stop with the Melky and Cano partying nonsense already?

    They play a kids game for a living. They are not curing cancer.

    Do you people really think that Melky and Cano’s partying habits are any different than any other ball player?

    Are you people jealous because you can not live that lifestyle?

    It’s a known fact that Melky works out with A-Rod. So obviously he’s sober enough in the morning to wake up early and work out.

    I’m willing to bet that the majority of you sleep til 5PM when you have a hangover.

    They are young ballplayers. Partying is what young ballplayers do.

    They are not building spaceships to travel to Galaxy Zion.

  148. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:40 pm

    Personally, I am surprised it took Hank this long to pipe in. He seems to be quieter of late.

    Nick in SF,

    Geez, now I’m hearing about Melky goin after C-Rod…what is going on during the players’ time off? One big massive, pinstriped gang-bang with “The Immaculate Collection” playing in the background. Scary…and sorry kids.

  149. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:42 pm

    canocabrera-

    don’t be a playa hata.

    its not like she’s got her stick in every hive like pavano.

  150. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:42 pm

    “But even if we win, losing this series on the heels of the Sox series is extremely frustrating.

    I do not know if I will even watch the game.”

    So even if they win you will not be happy? Why do you even bother to watch games at all then?

    Do you know how many other things you can accomplish during your day in the 3 hours it takes to watch a ballgame?

  151. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:43 pm

    ray,

    We’re just venting.

    I am sure every ballplayer has their way with the bottle and the nightlife. “I’m talking about drawing a line in the sand over which YOU DO NOT…also, Dude, chinamen is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian American, please.”

  152. bdog375 July 2nd, 2008 at 5:44 pm

    Btw, I just became cool enough to get up to date on the whole A-Rod, Madonna thing (I am more of a stats guy then a celeb gossip guy). Anyways, while I am not a big fan of infidelity, baseball, more than any other sport (IMO), is plagued with guys cheating on their wife. I love how when it is A Rod, though, this is suddenly a big deal. The media loves to hate this guy!

  153. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:44 pm

    Ray,

    Do you know how many other things you can accomplish during your day in the 3 hours it takes to watch a ballgame?

    Or perhaps what one might accomplish instead of posting comments on this blog all day? ;)

  154. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 5:44 pm

    LOL, I didn’t say they were ugly, just that they were.. promiscuous. I’d rather keep my nether regions, thank you

  155. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 5:46 pm

    I’ve seen ONE video of Melky and Robbie “partying”

    Robinson was having fun while Melky looked rather uncomfortable. Jeter’s partying ways are more documented but those two kids get a bad rap

  156. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:46 pm

    Mad Prince,

    Vent all you want. I’m just venting that I think it’s dumb when people keep mentioning Cano’s and Cabrera’s partying.

    Does anyone remember the commercial the boss did with Jeter making fun of his night life?

    Also I don’t know if you were talking about me, but I’ve never used the word “chinamen” in my life.

  157. Phil July 2nd, 2008 at 5:50 pm

    Just wanted to poke my head in…used to be a regular all of last year. Good to see little has changed. Everyone still panics and overreacts. DFA whoever has a bad game and call up the kid from the minors. :)

  158. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:50 pm

    ray,

    that was quote from The Big Lebowski. Excellent film. 10th Anniversary.

    I definitely remember those commercials, but Ray, please, don’t make the mistake of comparing Cano or Melky to Derek Jeter, even at 24 years old.

  159. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:50 pm

    “Or perhaps what one might accomplish instead of posting comments on this blog all day? ”

    I multi task and type and read extremely fast so this takes up very little of my time.

  160. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    canocabrera-

    I get it. I just don’t want to dump of women when being a male and promiscuous is celebrated (for xample when Trump is single).

  161. Frank Discussion July 2nd, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    raymagnetic ®™ wrote “Are you people jealous because you can not live that lifestyle?”

    Yes. I’m jealous. I’d love to be in their position and make millions doing something I enjoy.

    Nothing wrong with these guys partying. As long as they act responsibly, and so far I haven’t seen any evidence to the contrary.

  162. AD July 2nd, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    Poor Melky. After April, I thought he was gonna break out. But with Melk’s numbers, even Bernie would’ve sat for a game or 2.

  163. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    Ray,

    What’s the secret? I waste a lot of time each day and am mildly proud of it.

  164. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    Technically, I think tonight’s game is still win-lose, not lose-lose. I’m trying to confirm.

  165. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 5:53 pm

    I agree with you there, Mark

  166. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:53 pm

    Hi Phil-

    got any stock tips?

  167. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 5:54 pm

    “that was quote from The Big Lebowski. Excellent film. 10th Anniversary.

    I definitely remember those commercials, but Ray, please, don’t make the mistake of comparing Cano or Melky to Derek Jeter, even at 24 years old.”

    Flew right over my head cause I’ve never seen it before.

    Cano’s numbers are better than the captains his first few years in the league.

    Jeter was slightly above average and Cano is well above average this year notwithstanding.

  168. S.o.S.27 July 2nd, 2008 at 5:55 pm

    “Kim Kardashian probably has more STDs than Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan and Jenna Jameson combined.”

    Perris has something to say about that.

    I wonder if Jeter will take Arod out on the town to get his head straight. Maybe give him some of his over flow of hot chicks crumbs.

  169. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 5:57 pm

    canocabrera-

    can you link to the party video :)

  170. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    LOL, I once read a story about Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez meeting Lindsay Lohan in a NY club. A-Rod went up to her and struck up a conversation while Jeter the ladies man stood sheepishly in the corner.

  171. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    Who the hell is Perez Hilton, and why does anything they say matter?

  172. S.o.S.27 July 2nd, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    I know most of you arent superstitious. But can their be a curse of Santana? All the players from our team that was mentioned in that deal have either gotten hurt,are playing badly or both. I was against that trade but i think its time to try to find a Twins jersey under the stadium.

  173. V July 2nd, 2008 at 6:00 pm

    “Who the hell is Perez Hilton, and why does anything they say matter?”

    Agreed.

  174. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 6:00 pm

    Ray,

    Rent it tonight! Seriously wonderfully hilarious film.

    It is my favorite movie of all time.

    Do you like the Coen Brothers? (O Brother Where Art Though, No Country For Old Men, Fargo, etc.)

  175. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Cano and Cabrera partying when they should have still been at home sobbing after losing to the Indians. Stupid Jerks!

  176. S.o.S.27 July 2nd, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Im not a Lindsey Lohan fan. But “Mean Girls”(i was forced to watch)was hillarious. Made me also wonder why girls didnt look like that when i was going to school.

  177. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    SOS,

    Santana’s numbers aren’t exactly “eye-popping”…

  178. raymagnetic ®™ July 2nd, 2008 at 6:02 pm

    Mad Prince,

    Fargo is one of my favorite movies. If they’re behind the Big Lebowski I might want to see it.

    O’ Brother was pretty good as well.

  179. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 6:02 pm

    Love the Coen Brothers, “Miller’s Crossing” is my favorite film from them, haven’t seen “No Country…” yet though.

  182. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    Mark – Yay! Finally. Ya know, Cynthia and ARod JUST had their second daughter. I know if a marriage is in trouble it doesn’t necessarily matter. And Madonna JUST adopted that little boy from Africa. I don’t know, call me crazy, but they all should be a little too busy to even be thinking about cheating (if in fact ANY of this is true, which who the heck knows).

  183. Blargh July 2nd, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    SoS: If Santana can curse teams, he needs to work on that curse-aim of his; he’s hitting the Mets too

  186. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 6:05 pm

    Lenny Kravitz? AAA playa.

    You guys know who his mother is, right? You would never match them up if you didn’t know. Totally out of left field.

    Hope Melky takes this as a positive. Someone who went to the game said they saw Melky give attitude to Gardner in the field.

  188. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 6:07 pm

    Ray,

    If you like Fargo, you’ll love Lebowski. O Brother is hilarious too, my second favorite. More of a guys flick, or so it seems.

    Frank Discussion,

    Oddly enough, I just never could get into Miller’s Crossing. It might be the one Coen Bros. film I can’t handle. Barton Fink is pretty sweet.

  189. WeakKneesWallyPipp July 2nd, 2008 at 6:08 pm

    side note, Pete, sad day up and down the boardwalk and all along the Backstreets, as Madame Marie passed away. Good story on the Asbury Park press website.

  190. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 6:09 pm

    I think that whole Melky/Gardner handshake thing was fabricated

  191. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 6:11 pm

    So, I’m just getting in.
    What happened? Cynthia left Alex for Lenny Kravitz? What?..lol.
    I remember his mommy from The Jeffersons…

    Just win a game tonight!

  192. S.o.S.27 July 2nd, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    Carolina Asdohain looks like something Jeter would say ” been there done that”. Man if i was Jeter for a day.

  193. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    Doreen – take the source (NY Post) with a grain of salt. Remember last year when after Alex was shown in Toronto with the blonde lady, the Post had a picture of Cynthia leaving their apartment with a suitcase and captioned that she stormed off and was leaving Alex. Where did she really go – to Boston to meet Alex and spent the weekend with him there.

  194. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 6:16 pm

    I take anything the New York Post says with a grain of salt.

    Two words:-

    Rupert + Murdoch.

    This is the kind of crap his tabloids (its an insult to call them newspapers) specialize in. Always have, always will – no matter where they are in the world.

  195. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes July 2nd, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    Wow, all kinds of crazy stuff goin on.

    C-Rod allegedly running away with Lenny, A-Rod allegedly visiting Madonna in the wee hours of the morning.

    And then there is Jeter, who intelligently has never married, the end result being his shagging 6 of Maxim’s finest.

  196. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 6:18 pm

    Fran,

    I know. I don’t know why I let myself get drawn into this. I swore I wasn’t! :lol: Guess I can’t resist a little gossip, after all. (sheepish grin)

  197. jeff July 2nd, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    “Betemit (6 of his last 17, four runs, two RBI) has been less helpless of late at the plate.”

    Peter, I really don’t understand why Betemit has been your whipping boy this season. Less helpless of late? His OPS since May 8 is .878. It’s not a lot of ABs, and even I don’t expect him to do that for a full season, but the idea that he’s been terrible until very recently is just wrong.

    He’s the best backup infielder the Yankees have had in years. Miles better than past blog favorites like Miguel Cairo and Andy Phillips.

  198. yankee lover July 2nd, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    Posada two hits last night- So smart Joe sits him tonight

  199. Guiseppe Franco July 2nd, 2008 at 6:24 pm

    Posada must’ve had some issues tonight because BPTV said there was going to be further details expected by Kim Jones on the YES pregame.

  200. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 6:24 pm

    It’s really a sad and pathetic statement for people, and nothing proves it more than this board, that they need to live their sex lives through Jeter and or Rodriguez. I wonder how many of you guys (males) are more jealous of not being the woman in the stories.

  201. YankeesTech July 2nd, 2008 at 6:29 pm

    I agree, cut the Hollywood crap talk. New York Post is one of the most horrible newspapers in the nation. Only uneducated types follow the life of Paris Hilton and Brittney Spears.

    Go watch the The Insider crap on cable and stick to the New York Yankees.

  202. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 6:30 pm

    GB: Certainly not me.

  203. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 6:30 pm

    GreenBeret7 -

    Now THAT is an interesting take on the situation.

  204. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 6:31 pm

    S.o.S.27-

    it depends on your school distict, but in general, there’s good and bad everywhere. Mean Girls – haven’t seen it, but I imagine it’s funny, it was written by tina fey.

  205. JOHN aka FREE CANDY July 2nd, 2008 at 6:36 pm

    My preciction- 6-4 Yankees
    Ponson 5 innings 3 runs, way too many pitches
    Yanks score early, and Bret the Jet has a good game, collecting 2 hits, 2 steals and 2 runs scored

  206. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 6:37 pm

    Not me either, GB7. The whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Its almost a “think of the children” deal.

    Tabloids exist because people like to live vicariously at others expense. Yeah, sad.

  207. Laura - If Cynthia doesn't want him, I'll take A-Rod July 2nd, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    Glad to see Melky getting a day’s rest. He needs it. Still not ready to give up on the kid. Time will tell. Didn’t like Girardi lame answer last night about why he didn’t have Melky bunt. So far, he’s not impressing me as a manager.

  208. AlbanyYankee July 2nd, 2008 at 6:46 pm

    Were Ken Singleton and Michael Kay at a pig roast all day? They are wearing Tommy Bahama shirts and look like they’ve been partying for a while. Weird.

  209. Jorge Steinbrenner July 2nd, 2008 at 6:47 pm

    The Big Lebowski: still, to this day, the only movie I’ve ever walked out of.

    GO YANKS!

  210. j July 2nd, 2008 at 6:53 pm

    why is posada not in the lineup? he can still hit!

  211. bluyt July 2nd, 2008 at 6:54 pm

  212. ERâ„¢ (The Last Yankee Fanâ„¢) July 2nd, 2008 at 6:55 pm

    Hi Pete

    It was good to see you again

  213. benfica356 July 2nd, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    wait, posada not in?

  214. j July 2nd, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    i saw the yes lineup without posada but i checked online and he is in there. late scratch?

  215. ERâ„¢ (The Last Yankee Fanâ„¢) July 2nd, 2008 at 6:58 pm

    Sidney Ponson?
    Luis Mendoza ERA 5.40?
    Luis Mendoza has never faced any of the Yankees?

    Triple Threat!

  216. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    Who said Posada isn’t playing. His name is in the lineup.

  217. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    On the pre-game Kim said that Girardi detected a mechanical flaw in Jorge’s delivery to throw runners out and they need to work on it. Don’t think that it why he was scratched though.

  218. TIME 4#27 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    THE SEASON IS OVER!!!!! THE YANKEES WILL NEVER SCORE MORE THEN 3 RUNS A GAME……. THEY MAKE ME SICK, I’M DONE.

  219. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:02 pm

    I hope the Yankees offense shows up tonight.
    Let’s go Yanks

  220. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:03 pm

    Ladies, that post was more directed at the male portion of the board. They spend more time drooling over Jeter’s life in the sack than his life around the second sack. Sometimes, it’s difficult to figure which part these guys want to play. I’m wioth ya’ll, though. I’m getting tired of reading about it. It ranks right at the bottom of the list with who’s on steroids.

  221. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    Um so, the posts ‘source’ is this bogus celeb site? SO where are the pictures of c-rod and Lenny?

  222. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    Wait…Jorge was scratched?

    Pete, help us out here…

  223. risp say's July 2nd, 2008 at 7:05 pm

    i have a good feeling bout this game

  224. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:07 pm

    Fran, Girardi needs to work on his mechanical flaws with his managerial skills and let Pena work on Posada’s throwing.  Girardi was never that great a catcher to begin with…offensively or defensively.

  225. ERâ„¢ (The Last Yankee Fanâ„¢) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:07 pm

    It’s raining here .
    Is it rain there ?

  226. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:08 pm

    Posada is playing

  227. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 7:08 pm

    Cynthia is trying to lure Bret Favre out of retirement? What!??!?!

    What has Aaron Rodgers done to deserve this???

  228. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:10 pm

    Nick, it’s true, my friends uncles sisters, friend told me so. You think tmz would run with it?

  229. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:12 pm

    Nick: He would, wouldn’t he?

  230. JoeT 28 in 09!! MO FOR CY YOUNG!! stop complaining and watch the game!! July 2nd, 2008 at 7:12 pm

    Jennifer – you have to ask? Of course the Post would run with it.

    This Ponson guy is amazing :) lol we’ll see

  231. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:13 pm

    So, how much alcohol am I gonna need to drink to get this team to score a run? I’m ready for it, I’m starving and have to wait for dinner…

  232. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    Rebecca no need to hold off on alcohol. You don’t need to eat, drink up. lol

  233. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    GB – I am sure that Pena will work with Posada. I think that Girardi has a good reputation as a catcher here because he was on the Championship Yankee teams.

  234. Dan July 2nd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    lets go offense

  235. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    I can’t believe Brett Favre might be back again. Actually..I guess I can.
    Aaron Rodgers is gonna need to start working on a new Favre voodoo doll

  236. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    So wait it is true that Farve might be back? He is worse at retiring than Roger!

  237. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    should we do a shot for each Yankee run scored?
    I wanna be wasted by the end of the night..

  238. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    One pitch, one out?

    Wow. Johnny, that is so not cool.

  239. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    So far this looks familiar. Good pitching, offensive offense.

  240. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    Link about Favre:
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/.....id=3471189

    come on Bobby

  241. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    SA, if you do that you’re so gonna end the night sober.

  242. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    sa- why? you won’t be drunk at all. Drink up for each man left on base.

  243. Pedro July 2nd, 2008 at 7:18 pm

    Jeter really loves Young.

  244. MoBoy(aka McLovin) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:18 pm

    This guy is just coming off the DL.Wonder if the Yankees can hit against him?

  245. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 7:19 pm

    This Texas pitcher has thrown 17 innings and making his first start in over 2 months. Was out with shoulder trouble – this is a recipe for disaster for the Yanks. These are the types of pitchers they make look like Cy Young.

  246. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    yeah..my “Shot for each Yankee run scored tonight game” might not be too successful tonight. :(

  247. Cj July 2nd, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    Great start so far.

    This damn team is going to kill me.

  248. Mark July 2nd, 2008 at 7:23 pm

    the NY Post isn’t always wrong.

    remember when they said Oscar de la Hoya was a cross dress – they were right.

    remember when they said WMDs in Iraq – well, one outta two aint bad.

  249. pat July 2nd, 2008 at 7:23 pm

    I heard the Texas pitching coach give a scouting report on his pitcher. Power sinker is his best pitch so expect alot of ground balls.

  250. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    Along those lines, perhaps all those charities that base their donations on the number of homeruns should probably change that a donation for every runner left in scoring position. At least for this season, they’d probably raise more money.

  251. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    Sidney is getting fly ball outs – I think he is supposed to be a ground ball pitcher, but he is doing a good job through 2.

  252. joe July 2nd, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    phew. game was on the line there with runner on second.

  253. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    Not bad Sir Sidney..not bad at all.

    Time for the Yankee bats to..eh..whatever…

  254. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    Mark: LMAO

    Doreen, that’s not a bad idea.

  255. mark July 2nd, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    Just a reminder that I’m a Ponson believer. A guy who has pitched like he has still can do good things.

  256. Vrsce July 2nd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    Ponson is looking pretty good.

  257. ERâ„¢ (The Last Yankee Fanâ„¢) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    More Bad News:

    from the AP,

    ” General Motors’ stock falls below $10 for first time since 1954 “

  258. mark July 2nd, 2008 at 7:27 pm

    Arod seems to thrive on controversy. Let’s see if the Madonna Kravitz connection can titillate him no pun intended.

  259. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    If you’re looking for a fun, OPTIMISTIC drinking game, how about you take a shot/drink for every scoreless inning that Ponson picks up.

  260. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:30 pm

    That would be fun. :)

  261. jennifer- I got your back Girardi July 2nd, 2008 at 7:31 pm

    shot #1

  262. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:31 pm

    For real?

  266. mark July 2nd, 2008 at 7:34 pm

  273. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:37 pm

    Cano sighting…Robbie heating up can only bring us good things!

  274. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    is anyone having trouble with MLB TV… Mine is slow and shows the Yankees winning 1-0. That can’t be right, they never score that early.

  275. JMZ July 2nd, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    Mark,
    Don’t know if you were kidding or not, but on the De La Hoya thing, I think those pictures turned out to be photoshops after all.

  276. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    I love this line-up…except I’d like to see Jorge @ DH, ‘Stache @ 1B and Molina / Moeller (he is allowed to play, right?) platooning @ C until Jorge’s shoulder properly heals.

  277. JoeT 28 in 09!! MO FOR CY YOUNG!! stop complaining and watch the game!! July 2nd, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    Look at this – we have a center fielder who when the ball is in the air he tracks it down and I feel confident he’s going to catch it!!

  278. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:42 pm

    I think Gardner in the 9-hole can bring us that “energy” Melke did in ’06…two leadoff men.

  279. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    ” General Motors’ stock falls below $10 for first time since 1954 “

    That company should just fold up and go away. Their cars are average at best. Their ONLY hope is that the release of the new Camero – one used in Transformers – brings in additional sales. But at $4.50 a gallon, soon to be hitting $5 by end of summer, not so much.

    Good luck GM. Congrats on your consistent production of mediocrity.

  280. Tseng July 2nd, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    Sidney couldn’t fit in Texas? He’s not slim or anything but come on, Texas is supposed to be HUGE!

  281. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 7:45 pm

    Come on Ponson. Get out of this.
    All tied up now..

  282. Jeter2007 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:45 pm

    unlucky for nyy
    that was a good pitch from ponson

  283. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:46 pm

    While I am excited for the run, it was a solo shot so they still fear the RISP reaper.

    RISP reaper looks like Peter Gammons, guitar strapped to his back, Babe Ruth’s old Sox uni as his cloak.

  284. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 7:46 pm

    Oh no..

  286. Carmine July 2nd, 2008 at 7:47 pm

    Bah, had to see this coming. Pretty much every out Ponson got in the first two were hit hard.

  287. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:47 pm

    Quick, everyone rush down to Home Depot and get your
    “Rangers sweep Yanks” brooms.

    canocabrera – you don’t have to comment on it – but Melky looks lost out there – he definitely gets the job done, but I hold my breath until the ball is caught

  290. Zooboy July 2nd, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    It was nice to have a lead for ten minutes.

  291. Astoria John July 2nd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    not to be nancy negative here, but why does this 3-1 deficit feel like 11-0?? golly i hope i’m wrong.

  292. Jeter2007 July 2nd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    carmine,
    the first was a bloop hit, 2nd was a broken bat bloop, young’s was a a good pitch that he took a defensive swing at, last hit was also a bloop

    ponson is doing just fine

  293. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    Texas’ 1-4 men are “professional hitters” and Catalanotto (#5 – Yankee Killer) and the youngster Davis (#6) are pretty damn good, too.

  294. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    I was washing dishes – how did ARod not score on Cano’s HR?

  296. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 7:50 pm

    Irony of ironies: Ponson gives up runs to help keep LoHud Yankee fans sober!

  297. MJL July 2nd, 2008 at 7:50 pm

    At what point does Michael Kay get over the fact that Josh Hamilton used to be a drug addict? WE GET IT. Three nights in a row now…sheesh. When can we forget about his past and recognize him instead for the great, pure player he is now?

  298. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 7:50 pm

    I don’t think you should hold your breath, JoeT. While he may be struggling offensively, Melky’s defense remains solid. I guess thats a natural fear though.

  299. mark July 2nd, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    What Jeter said.

    Hold them to three, score lots more.

    No I haven’t been drinking. Yet.

  300. JoeT 28 in 09!! MO FOR CY YOUNG!! stop complaining and watch the game!! July 2nd, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    Doreen – Cano doubled and A-Rod scored

  301. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    “RISP reaper looks like Peter Gammons, guitar strapped to his back, Babe Ruth’s old Sox uni as his cloak.”

    LOL…please boot the MFer outta the Yankees Dugout he’s overstayed his welcome.

  302. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    Hamilton hit a good pitch. how many of the yankee millionaires can hit good pitchs? They hit mistakes..

    gardner took a step back on the Boggs hit 1st if he did not he would have made the play…

  303. Ryan July 2nd, 2008 at 7:52 pm

  325. The Fallen Phoenix July 2nd, 2008 at 7:58 pm

    Yeah, you’re absolutely right, Cashman should have gone out and signed Andruw Jones – we’d have a centerfielder then, wouldn’t we?

    By the way, I think it’s really important to recognize that the high Yankee payroll is a combination of a few factors that are never properly accounted for: the Yankees locking up their own talent (in the past Bernie, but now Jeter, Posada, and Rivera) for very high sums of money; the fact that the Yankees don’t start with a $0 payroll each offseason, but that older (particularly backloaded) contracts (like Giambi and Abreu) that were made six or seven years ago, or acquired two or three seasons ago also tend to drag that payroll up.

    People forget that one of the reasons (although by far not the exclusive one) the Yankees have a large payroll now is paying for the success of the early decade; when the Yankees were winning 100 games a year in 2002, 2003, and 2004, it was (partly) due to contracts signed like Jeter’s and Giambi’s, and the two of them combine for over $40 million on payroll this season.

  326. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 7:58 pm

    The current panic aside, they aren’t that bad, are they?

    Pete, while I would love nothing more than to sit and pile on a pounding by the Yankees, I fear, that Yes, they are that bad offensively.

    they need to hit the “Reset” button for their offense.

    For now. But with the way Texas hits and the poor pitching by Ponson, they are going to need more than 1 Grand Stache to win this game.

    Perhaps that hit can be the catalyst to a 15 hit night scoring 10 runs. Would be nice.

He went over to the wall in the clubhouse and with a roll of medical tape, taped a 6 foot high letter “P” on the wall. Somebody asked what it was for, and Steinbrenner just turned around and walked towards the door. He turned around and told everyone to leave it there until he told them differently. It stayed there until the end of the 5th game of the WS that year. He was asked again about the letter, and he just smiled and said “Probation. The trainers and everyone else has been on probation. I would have fired the trainers if there had been another injury.”

    That was a nice play by Davis. That had double written all over it. Can’t fault Cano on that one.

    I want Sidney to sit down now and another pitcher in.

    I think Sidney gets another chance. This was Texas. Yada yada yada. But now it’s time to get someone else in the game.

    Thank God for that run last inning…

  447. Steve July 2nd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Hank told Mussina to start “pitching like Jamie Moyer” and Moose turned his season around right after that.

    Hank was quoted yesterday as saying “This is getting ridiculous” with the Yankee offense, and they break out in a big way tonight.

    Hank is a genius.

    so much for the ponson solution. Time to break out the trade book Cash and find someone else. These AAA rejects are not going to get it done. I don’t care who it is, but it’s going to have to be better than Ponson, Rasner, or any other DFA reject. Time to pull some magic out of your arse Cash cause this team is quickly going into the crapper.

  478. rogerk99 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    Ponson had to come out after the lead off walk-Giradi had no feel for that-what a waste

  479. Ken July 2nd, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    Joe, wake up

  480. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    Seriously, I know there is not a bunch of pitching out there but did Cashman think he could really go to the well once more.

    What does this say about your team when you are willing to sign Sidney Ponson and a temp replacement until Kennedy, Hughes, and Wang come back.

    Either your head is not on straight or you are just kidding yourself.

  481. rconn23 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    Good Lord. What a terrible managing job.

  482. jon July 2nd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    always a good idea to bring in the relief AFTER the lead is lost.

  483. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:10 pm

    You knew te whining was going to proceed, people also have to realize this is the Texas offense it’s not like they suck, Chris Davis is a huge hitting prospect and your not holding them to 2 runs per game that’s why losing 2-1, 3-2 games hurt vs Texas.

  484. Lol July 2nd, 2008 at 9:10 pm

    Well, Yankees are losing. The idiots are out and about. Coincidence? Lol.

  485. Frank July 2nd, 2008 at 9:10 pm

    Zooboy:

    Couldn’t agree more. I cannot believe Girardi left Ponson in after giving up the first HR of the inning.

    Take him out with a chance to win the game. Isn’t that what managers are supposed to do???

    As always I’m sure Girardi will provide no explanation and take no blame for his actions, or lack thereof. I am officially anti-Girardi after this series!

  486. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    as I posted earlier today, having Hawkins in the pen hurts tonight. Ponson bombed they have used Veras and robertson 2 days in a row so the need a few arms.. one of those arms is Hawkins..

    Why don’t they get rid of him already.also as I posted way before the game rasner and ponson will not do it, no chance unless they hit like last year and they aint….

    plenty of time to come back but with this bunch of millionaire clutch hitters you never know.. you guys can blame it on Melky tonight as usual..

    they had nobody warming up because they waste 1 pitcj=hing spot on Hawkins who absolutely sucks…

  487. YankeeDiva July 2nd, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    Pete- I thought Ponson has pitched fairly well (not ace like but well) for his teams and it was more of his attitude that got him released. I don’t blame Girardi for keeping him in, in the 6th inning its not that bad to ask your starter to go 6 innings.

    I love how most call for Girardi’s head stating they would do the opposite after the fact.

  488. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    Edwar limits the damage – nice job.

    The Yanks can score some more runs here.

  489. sunny615 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    Edwar should have started that inning.

  490. V July 2nd, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    Ponson is better than this. Remember the Met start?

  491. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    You knew te whining was going to proceed, people also have to realize this is the Texas offense it’s not like they suck,

    So if you knew that, then would you agree Girardi was aware of that?????

    Then why was no one ready in the bull pen until it was too late????

    This is not whining but pointing out the deficiencies of the new savior manager who has missed most of the 2008 season.

  492. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:13 pm

    If they hadn’t made that play on Robbie, we’d still be winning right now..

    I dunno, something tells me this game isn’t over yet.

  493. Frank July 2nd, 2008 at 9:13 pm

    It has nothing to do with the Texas offense or “whining” Yankees fans.

    This is yet another Girardi blunder. That’s all there is to it. Period.

    Texas will score their runs, but Joe G really helped them out there.

  494. risp say's July 2nd, 2008 at 9:13 pm

    so who are we blaming tonight guys?lol

  495. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    Umm Ponson was the one who gave up the HR’s. How exactly does your mind conceptualize, that somehow Hawkins being in the pen hurts the Yankees?

  496. Frankie Yankee July 2nd, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    For someone who is supposed to be on top of every situation Girardi has made some really questionable decisions that last few games. Needless to say, you need to take Ponson out of that game after Bradleys homer. Again, just a microcosm of how the year has gone thus far.

  497. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    how many more starts will 1.50 WHIP Ponson get?

    putting that many guys on base against a team that actually can hit with RISP is going to hurt the ERA BAD…

  498. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    It’s whining..

  499. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    Brandon good point.

    Bet Ponson gets another start. If this wasn’t Texas maybe he wouldn’t. After what he did against the Mets he’d have to get at least another one to see which Sidney was the real Sidney.

    I’m still betting on the one that pitched against the Mets.

  500. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    Well, Tejas’ first 6 hitters are DAMN good…Davis is on poace for 80 HRs over 500 ABs…but after Ponsanity got through a “lucky” 5 innings, don’t y’all think Joe G should’ve had someone warming?
    I mean c’mon, Ponson has been rocky all evening…

  501. Lol July 2nd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    “I love how most call for Girardi’s head stating they would do the opposite after the fact.”

    Hindsight is 20/20, and 95% of the people here have perfect vision, lol.

  502. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    Ponson is better than this. Remember the Met start?

    May have the talent but have to disagree. He has never done much as a pitcher. A couple decent seasons, but nothing that qualifies him to be a #5 pitcher on the Yankees. Maybe for Balitmore, KC, Texas, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati.

  503. j July 2nd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    dont lose hope i hope everyone remebers that 2006 game vs texas the posada walkoff homerun after he got hit at home plate

  504. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    angel they have limited pen options and therefore they did not want to warm up guys if there pen options are bad options…

    hawkins = a bad option…

  505. Shdwrptr July 2nd, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    Does anybody else find it laughably ironic that our pitching sucks on the only day we score runs?

  506. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    Nice job by Edwar. Get to work bats.

    Hey..maybe Hank will issue another statement to the press during the 7th inning stretch…ya know..to motivate them to win this game. Since that’s what they need… ;)

  507. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    I guess Girardi was looking forward to the Boston series and did not want to burn the bullpen. But Sidney is making him do it any way. There may be a LaTroy sighting today if Yanks score few runs.

  508. j July 2nd, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    first hit gardner right now lets go !

  509. Lol July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    Ponson gave up what, 3 hard hit balls all game? 2 of them were the HRs?

    Yeah, he’s gonna give up a lot of baserunners. You know who else does? Daisuke Matsuzaka. As long as the baserunners are only walks and weak grounders/bloops, you’ll win more than you’ll lose.

  510. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    I don’t expect the Yankees to stop scoring either.

  511. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    Can’t let Ponson beat you in the this game.

    Girardi should have lifted him after the Bradley HR. That’s a no brainer decision. As was having your 0 for his last 22, 9th place hitter, bunt last night down one in the bottom of the ninth.

    On both occasions, Girardi spit the bit.

    He’s looking more and more like a one and done manager.

    The non-moves he makes on the bench are beginning to defy logic.

    Its a flawed enough team as it is. If Girardi can’t make the easy decisions on the bench, he’s not the long term solution to be the manager of this team.

    Just a horrific job by Girardi in this series. Let’s see if his team can bail him out of his latest bonehead non-move.

  512. MoBoy(aka McLovin) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    I love how people here who said we didn’t need a trade is pissed at Ponson.

    Ponson did this 2 years ago with the Yankees.He had one good start then imploded.

    This is the AL now.These starting pitchers aren’t gonna get away with 4-5 walks and 100 pitches in 5 innings every start.

    Ponson did a great job.He did what he did 2 years ago.Now it’s Rasner turn to implode.

  513. rconn23 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    “so who are we blaming tonight guys?lol”

    Ponson for sucking. And Girardi and Cashman for not realizing that Ponson sucks.

  514. Moron July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    SJ44, shut it, idiot.

  515. pete July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    what do you all have to say about edwar now?? Maybe now all the edwar ramirez haters can stop talking bad about him… At least for today. You know who you are..

  516. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    If you say so.

  517. Frank July 2nd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    “I love how most call for Girardi’s head stating they would do the opposite after the fact.”

    YankeeDiva:

    You have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. Ponson walked the leadoff men and gave up 2 (two) 2-run homeruns. When do you think would have been a better time to take him out? Perhaps after he gives up a 3rd homerun?

    Ponson was obviously gassed and should have been taken out after the first homerun…when he still had a lead and a chance to get a win.

  518. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    “Edwar should have started that inning.”

    I like the ole stand-by of letting the SP start the next inning, if leading big, then getting pulled ASAP if anyone gets on base.
    I think we’re all on the same page: Joey G was ASLEEP at the switch…

  519. Zooboy July 2nd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    I’m with you Frank. I was so ready to feel the love for Girardi — absolutely loved him as a player — but so far he’s been an awful, awful manager. No feel for the game, ridiculous play calling. I can see trying to get through the inning with Ponson, but it seems like he was asleep at the switch not having someone at least getting ready. I’m still shaking my head over bunting with no out in the 1st but not in the 9th last night. He’s just a bad manager.

  520. Eugie July 2nd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    I can’t believe there are still Girardi defenders out there.

  521. nyyfaninlaaland July 2nd, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    Folks, let me explain it to you. It’s the top of the 6th. In the pen, Giese & Veras have gone 2 straight days. Robertson threw 45 pitches on 1 day rest. So left we got Edwar, 1 day off after 2 back to back, Farnsworth, and Hawkins (sure you’d all be happy to see him). 3 innings to get to Mo. Get another 1 out of your starter, at about 80 pitches and having gotten 3 DP’s already, and you’re okay with Edwar and Farns for 1 each then Mo. Sometimes plans just don’t work.

  522. rbj July 2nd, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    Peter, any chance the Yankees replace Ponson with Shawn Chacon? Please?

  523. sunny615 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    This team has a lot more issues that just Melky or Girardi (who does look a little lost sometimes and seems to be having difficulty adjusting to the AL it seems)… the offense is streaky and often lethargic. The rotation is in shambles – no Wang, Hughes, and an inept Kennedy (so far) with patches like Rasner and Ponson (and possibly Igawa) falling pathetically short. Melky is 0 for June. Abreu can’t seem to hit anymore and Hawkins is still on the team for some mysterious reason. I don’t know if they need luck, concentration, or a team enema (or a combination of all) but for some reason, they just can’t seem to get it together. When pitchers pitch well, they can’t even hit a tee ball. When they hit well and score, they can’t pitch worth a crap. It’s a frustrating season and it doesn’t seem to be coming together. I don’t know if there’s one person to blame, except admitting that this team right now is horrible and is not living up to their potential. Frustrating does not even begin to cover what this season has been. sigh.

  524. Paddy R July 2nd, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    ramirez/veras don’t start the inning, fine. but someone has to be up behind them, no question pete. when bradley homers, it’s see you later. when you get 5 IP 3 ER from him call it a day. all the fly balls and rocket double play balls are only going to stay in the park and find fielders for so long. terrible by girardi.

  525. Peter Abraham July 2nd, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    Yankees Diva:

    It’s a myth that Ponson is any good. He is 15 games under .500 for his career with an ERA close to 5. He has not had a winning season since 2003. Most of the teams that released him did so because he was a crummy pitcher.

    He beat a bad Mets team the other day in the second game of a doubleheader. Good for him. But he’s not somebody you can trust.

  526. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    Does anyone remember – they showed Edwar warming up, was that before the first homerun or after?

    The thing with HRs is they happen so fast and Ponson is a ground ball type pitcher. I think it was reasonable to have Ponson start the inning – you want to use your bullpen as few innings as possible – but after someone got on, then someone should have been up. Certainly he did have Edwar up after the hit off Ponson’s leg, which by the way if he’d only positioned himself for a better carom, the ball could have been fielded. (stab at light-heartedness)

  527. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    SJ again a little dramatic on the Girardi stupid decisions.. Again the no bunt last night was moronic but give him some time…

  528. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    The Yanks need to take advantage here. First two batters on base.

  529. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    I think Girardi is always fighting the last war.

  530. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    So, let me get this straight….

    Melky Cabrera doesn’t bunt in the 9th inning down a run but Johnny Damon, the best hitter on the team this year, is bunting in the 6th inning?

  531. Moron July 2nd, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    “Folks, let me explain it to you. It’s the top of the 6th. In the pen, Giese & Veras have gone 2 straight days. Robertson threw 45 pitches on 1 day rest. So left we got Edwar, 1 day off after 2 back to back, Farnsworth, and Hawkins (sure you’d all be happy to see him). 3 innings to get to Mo. Get another 1 out of your starter, at about 80 pitches and having gotten 3 DP’s already, and you’re okay with Edwar and Farns for 1 each then Mo. Sometimes plans just don’t work.”

    But all of these idiots don’t get that, NOOOO, they want JOBA to come in and shut the Rangers down.

  532. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    bunt or hit away into dp. Your call Joe

  533. Spidur July 2nd, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    Pete, I understand the sarcasm when discussing Ponson’s evening (career, whatever). But that is no reason to take a low-blow shot at the Rockford Peaches. To do so is an insult to the women who have played and loved the game.

  534. Moron July 2nd, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    “So, let me get this straight….

    Melky Cabrera doesn’t bunt in the 9th inning down a run but Johnny Damon, the best hitter on the team this year, is bunting in the 6th inning?”

    Um, showing bunt, not same as bunting.

    Idiot.

  537. BUZZ July 2nd, 2008 at 9:22 pm

    I guess giardi doesnt want any1 to bunt

  541. pete July 2nd, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    can someone tell me why damon wasn’t bunting there??

  542. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    double steal. Your call joe

  543. Bob July 2nd, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    “Yankees Diva:

    It’s a myth that Ponson is any good. He is 15 games under .500 for his career with an ERA close to 5. He has not had a winning season since 2003. Most of the teams that released him did so because he was a crummy pitcher.

    He beat a bad Mets team the other day in the second game of a doubleheader. Good for him. But he’s not somebody you can trust.”

    He’s also battled weight issues for a long while, and seems remarkably in shape this season. Merely a coincidence that his better health occurs at the same time as his better numbers? Fitness matters.

    What I’ve seen in these two starts is missing the strike zone too much (hence the walks), a bunch of weak grounders and bloop singles, and when tired, hard hit balls. Yeah, I’d have a very short leash on him from here on out, but I definitely give him another start.

  544. BUZZ July 2nd, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    this is probably the game right here

  545. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    July 2nd, 2008 at 9:17 pm
    SJ44, shut it, idiot.

    That was a brilliant post. Are you upset that SJ44 is stating factual evidence of poor managing by Girardi or that you just don’t understand baseball.

    At least come back with more than that one liner. Prove him wrong with stats and facts not something that you borrowed from 15 games ago from others who spout off brilliant remarks like that.

  546. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    Moron,

    You have named yourself appropriately. Well done.

  547. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    Pete we’ll see if you man up when Ponson proves you wrong.

  548. Frank July 2nd, 2008 at 9:26 pm

    And who’s decision was it to burn Robertson out last night?

    Who’s decision was it to use Veras for two straight days?

    With Ponson going, would it have been a terrible idea to call up a fresh reliever?

    Also, I don’t mind Hawkins coming in. I trust him to get 3 outs in this situation. That’s what he’s there for. But you can’t defend leaving Ponson in after that first HR by Bradley. That’s all there is to it.

  549. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 9:26 pm

    I have been a Jeter supporter all along.
    Hate to say this, his skills are dimishing.
    When his contract comes up it will be ugly.
    Last time he benefited from A-Rod’s contract. Not this time.

  558. Moshe Mandel July 2nd, 2008 at 9:27 pm

    GIDP

  564. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    You have Ramirez warming up to start the 6th.

    Ponson is facing the meat of the Texas lineup. You plan ahead.

    You dont trust Sidney Ponson to get out of that inning. If he does, its a bonus. If he can’t, you have Ramirez ready.

    Its not that complicated.

    Stuart,

    Girardi’s biggest problem is he is trying to be the smartest guy in the room and is failing miserably.

    He’s not a rookie manager yet, he continues to make rookie mistakes. Tonight and last night his latest mistakes.

    At some point, its too much to take.

    We are talking basic, fundamental decisions and sorry, he’s not showing himself to be able to do it to date.

    Who knows, perhaps he is learning on the job. So far though, its safe to say he’s disappointing.

  565. MoBoy(aka McLovin) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    Who needs a trade we got Joba in the rotation.He pitched three innings yesterday and now we get to see Hughes and Kennedy both with 8 Eras help this team to the playoffs!!!!!!

    I love Joba in the rotation but can we admit that a trade for a pitcher is a must….not Sabthia but for sure not Chacon.Who struggled in the NL>

  566. daver July 2nd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    shoulda done the double steal

  567. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    Guessed wrong. thought damon would hit into dp, but alas it was our captain-jeter.

  568. rconn23 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    Wow. Just an old, tired roster.

  569. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    Derek killed them there. Another DP. That was a bad inning. The first two men on and the Yanks do nothing.

  570. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    Damn it.
    Let’s go Edwar

  571. risp say's July 2nd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

  572. Eugie July 2nd, 2008 at 9:30 pm

  573. BUZZ July 2nd, 2008 at 9:30 pm

  576. j July 2nd, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    teams cheat when jeter bats, they know he punches it to right and thats when they get the outs

  577. BUZZ July 2nd, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    if the bunt was on that grounder will have tied the game

  578. yankee lover July 2nd, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    another dumb move by dopey Joe, Leaves Ponson in too long. Should have came out after Bradleys homer. He always allows the starter the opportunity to let the game get out of hand, despite having relievers ready to go

  579. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    guys blame it on Melky. Really he makes $460 k and Derk DP only makes $19. Catn. clutch should have 2 DP’s tonight but only has 1..

    COme on clowns how bout calling like it is.. Now Dr. Kay says this has been happening for 4 or 5 days, CLown it has happened the whole season. What does a 250 avg. with RISP mean you mental midget.

    Derek has stunk all season, he has so few extra base hits it is a joke, it is Melky like…

    Come on blame it on Melky or Edwar who make again the league minimum and is not suppose to be Sparky Lyle Jr.

    The big boys have failed for the Yanks not the minnows but the big FISH..

  580. lil' m July 2nd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    That slippery little rascal RISP is trying to get back in the game against the Yankees . . .

  581. Neil July 2nd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    That inning summed up the 2008 New York Yankees

  582. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    You peeps are naive. Jeter knows that Melky is at a low point, especially after last night. So Jeter GIDPs in order to tell Melky “It’s ok. We all do it.” That’s leadership.

  583. Yankee 'to death' July 2nd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    your team can’t score runs, can’t get the hit when needed… 1st and 2nd on no out… WHY is DAMON not bunting??? it’s the 6th inning already….

  584. j July 2nd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    edwar has some good life on those pitches

  585. sunny615 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    This team is looking pretty sad. Capt GIDP can’t seem to get it out of the infield with RISP. Let’s hope that Abreu, Arod and Giambi still have some swing left.

  586. TKinDC July 2nd, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    So is Karstens the next man in the 5th spot? Good line in his game tonight:

    Karstens 7.0 5 2 2 0 6 1 3.71

  587. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    damon should have f-ing bunted. unbeleivable.

    He’s our best hitter w/ RISP, you don’t have him bunt and then have Captain TurnTwo come up.

  588. daver July 2nd, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    Is it me or does it seem that Giardi does not try to make things happen? e.g. In that situation….8 and 9 hitters get on base…no outs. Try something…hit and run,steal, etc. Everyone knows Jeter has hit into a lot of DP’s….take action to avoid that.

  589. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    Keep whining folks.
    When you have GIDP masters like Jeter, you have every right whine. Get it all out. Show some nerve and bash Jeter too. That applies to you too, Pete.

    Then you can enjoy when the Yanks win the game. They are only one run down.

  590. BUZZ July 2nd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    giardi is not forcing the issue hes not putting hit and run on not starting the runners jsut bad week for joe really bad

  591. Brian from PA July 2nd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    well jeez. i really thought this team got it together with that 7 game streak. but now it’s apparent that it was only a product of the ineptitude of the Astros and Padres, and not that the Yankees were actually playing well. They are making me really believe that they can’t make it to the playoffs this year. i just don’t get why the last several years, they look so bad for the first half of the year. but i don’t see any sign of them picking it up and playing dominant ball after the all star break like the have the last few years. it’s just sad. in a way though, i’ll be relieved if they get their asses handed to them by Boston this weekend because I can stop worrying about them making the playoffs and just enjoy plain old, no strings attached baseball and think about how much ass they’ll kick next year.

  592. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Oy Edwar, strikes.

    It’s still a one run game.

  593. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    26 pitches already , who’s up in the bullpen?

  594. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Dan shut up Damon should not have bunted but Captn. Clutch should try to hit the ball out of the infield on occasion..

    1 Big hit tonight I guess they had there quota for the day.. Hamilton worked that count, that is what the $27 mill. man should do and dominate but alex is not… His #’s this yr. are soft at $27 mill. he is suppose to dominate, last yr. he dominated not this yr…

  595. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Nick in SF…. that was good. Nice humor :)

  596. 86w183 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    Hey Joe—- when your team is struggling offensively, you MUST try to manufacture offense. Decent speed on the bases and no one out and you do NOTHING but sit there with your arms folded and hope? C’mon already… hit and run, double steal.. do something to energize the offense.

    Psst… Michael Kay… you feeling a bit STUPID for ridiculing the idea of Damon bunting? You should.

    These last four games are the most maddening of the year… leading into the least anticipated Yanks/Sawx series in about a decade… enjoy the fireowrks this weekend… they are likely the only ones we’re getting in the Bronx this year.

  597. Lol July 2nd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    Lol.

    The experts are really out in force tonight!

    If Girardi starts the runners for a hit and run, and the batter whiffs, and the lead guy’s out at 3rd, are you going to just say ‘shucks, that stinks’. No, you’re going to say ‘Wow, Girardi sucks, he shouldn’t have done that’.

    Lol.

  598. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 9:37 pm

    I understand the frustration, and I haven’t agreed with all of Girardi’s moves, most notably last night – but I really think some of the reactions are more a bit reactionary. Yes, he’s done some things wrong, but he’s done things right too. Its easy to forget that when frustrated.

  599. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:37 pm

    TK,

    I saw his line as well and was thinking the same thing.

    Might as well try it. Looks like the 5th starter is going to be a revolving door all year. Perhaps it will be Karstens turn next.

  600. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

  602. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    Good Boy Edwar!

  603. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    “teams cheat when jeter bats, they know he punches it to right and thats when they get the outs”

    That is not cheating. It is scouting.

    This year Jeter killed more rallies than any one else on the team. It is time to call a spade a spade.

  604. cult of basebaal July 2nd, 2008 at 9:39 pm

  607. Kill-Schill(ing) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    Does Girardi have some kind of principled aversion to the sacrifice bunt? That’s twice now his refusal to bunt in a critical situation has resulted in a DP and cost the Yankees runs.

    When a team is having difficulty scoring runs doesn’t the circumstance commend it.

  608. daver July 2nd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    “If Girardi starts the runners for a hit and run, and the batter whiffs, and the lead guy’s out at 3rd, are you going to just say ’shucks, that stinks’. No, you’re going to say ‘Wow, Girardi sucks, he shouldn’t have done that’.”

    No, I wouldn’t. I would have been glad they tried something…

  609. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    Peter will not rip King Derek but he will snipe at Girardi whenever possible..

    Again last night Girardi blew it and it is not debateable but tonight is another story….

    Derek cannot hit into DP’s like that but Damon does not get a pass with his unproductive AB..Again the ymight have shot there wad tonight with the 1 big hit because for them 1 big hit is quite a bonanza…

    see what millionaires come thru the last 3 AB’s you may want to cover your eyes..

    When do we start talking about who is going to replace Derek or is that against the law.. Resign him in 2 yrs and the obscene money he gets with this performance???Again his D is suprisingly well but his extra base power is Melky like…..

  610. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    The pitcher’s major league debut. Let’s see if the Yankees can hit him.

  611. pete July 2nd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    I love it how almost no one posts anything positive about edwar when he pitches good.I don’t know what else you pessimist fans want for him to do.

  612. nick July 2nd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    hey, Pete, Edwar pitches well against the same team twice in one series.

    so, just maybe, possibly, he’s not some kind of one-trick pony who the league has “figured out”, but a guy who will have ups and downs…….like every other young pitcher in baseball?

  613. Brian from PA July 2nd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    in addition to my previous statement, i know i sound like a negative nancy but bare in mind that the Dead Sox didn’t make the playoffs in 06 and then won it all in 07. sometimes you gotta take a step back to take a big step forward. i know we all want the playoff appearance streak to live on and have a chance to win it all in the Stadium’s final year, but hey, 26 wins in won stadium is a hell of a, HELL OF A run. so even if they play this poorly this year and don’t make it, perhaps our youth can develop a little more and they can sign a couple good, fairly young guys for next year with all the extra cash that’s coming off the books to set up a championship style baptism for the new Yankee Stadium. that would be fine with me.

    but of course that’s not to say i wouldn’t mind them pulling a 2006 Cardinals this year.

  614. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    My opinion. I wish Girardi took Ponson out right after that Bradley homer. It was obvious that Ponson was getting bailed out inning after inning. He wasn’t throwing good strikes.

    If the Yankees needed a fresh arm for the games against Boston they could have called someone up from Scranton and sent down Gonzalez if they had to.

  615. DFox July 2nd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    I wonder how bad the Yankees will look against this kid who is probably beyond nervous, and also throw in the ump with a very tight strike zone. They should pound him, but they probably won’t.

  616. BUZZ July 2nd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    Kill-Schill, just repeating what I heard here last night. Soon as the 7th inning was here, an anti-semite famous person roll call was rolled out! Someone mentioned Kate Smith. Don’t know if there is any truth to it though.

  636. Whiff (Cano's bat) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    For Girardi coming from the NL, he sure is tenative to use his manager of the year skills in the AL.

    That is the downside of the AL. The DH helps cover managerial deficiencies. Managers bank on that 3 run HR rather than manage.

    Except Mike Scoscia.

  637. j July 2nd, 2008 at 9:46 pm

    we need to run now because of the shift

  646. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:47 pm

    Brandon,

    They have been using him as a starter recently because of injuries.

    I’m not sure if its permanent or not because I haven’t been in Charleston for a few weeks.

  647. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 9:47 pm

    Same situation, speed on the basepaths, is the left side of infield open for Giambi?

  648. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 9:47 pm

    At least Yankees have some hitters who take pitches.

  649. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    Mike Scoscia has a team full of slap-hitters and speedsters, plus an aging Vlad. It’s a good thing that he’s crazy aggressive, because their offense might be even worse if they didn’t.

    The Angels win with great pitching. Their offense is bad.

  650. YankeeVIP July 2nd, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    the yankee offense only hits bad pitching (thats not all even the case all the time).. i dont think ive seen them hit a good pitcher in forever (thats why this team falters in the playoffs)

    this offense needs serious serious help. you cant measure them against the pitching of the mets, pirates, rangers .. it needs to come against the aces.

    So it is official, not only will porn stache help with hitting, but works on the ladies also.

    Just in from the Yankees: While ARod is currently going through a seperation with his wife, he is being comforted by the sudden growth of this Latin porn stache.

  671. Kill-Schill(ing) July 2nd, 2008 at 9:51 pm

    SJ44, does that recent report about Melancon mean that the Yankees won’t promote him until September?

    And SJ44, also, what’s the deal with Horne? First they placed him on the DL and then they retracted it.

    What have your heard about Horney’s injury?

    The middle of the order is now the top of the Yankees order… hell, I’ll take it.

  679. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 9:52 pm

    it may be time to give Karstens a start I know he stinks but he is doing well at AAA and he is not exactly replacing Koufax and Drysdale…

    Peter has a point on Washington this game but the reason is simple Texas knows they are not winning the WS and they are trying to see what there young guys have…

    the Yanks should do more of that also this team without Wang and a effective Hughes with this offense is winning nothing.

    this is a gift game and remember Kyle looms so do not open the champagne yet..

    the young kid is having a tough 1st outing but he has good tough.. he has been put in a tough position, cane be smart..

  680. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 9:52 pm

    Rebecca,

    I have to say, you were right. The game did have that feel, though, didn’t it? Still, 2 more relief innings…

    This is a nice inning. :)

    This is what ticks me off – the fans start saying “let’s go Yankees” AFTER they score their runs. Wouldn’t it be nice to cheer ‘em on BEFORE?

    Any inside dope SJ44 on Horne’s and Duncan’s injuries?

  688. Angel {insert random statement plus multiple !!!!!'s here} July 2nd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    I thought my first post was deleted cuz of the word “hell” whoops. Neways, go Yanks!

  692. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    Yea, Yankees win, Yankees win. 36-1 when leading after the 6th inning. Bring Hawkins in, bring Ohlendorf in, Traber-it doesn’t matter. We’re 36-1 in those situations.
    Go Yankees. Rookie pitcher Madrigal faces the vaunted heart of the Yankees order and gets shelled. What was Ron Washington thinking?

  693. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Honestly, I’d trust Ponson before Karstens. Ponson’s velocity is back to where it used to be. He made some awful pitches, but he’s got the stuff to get people out. Karstens has to be absolutely perfect or be facing an offense the quality of the Mariners to do the same.

    Neither one is much good, but I’d take Ponson’s 93 over Karsten’s 88. Karsten’s command hasn’t been that great at the big league level.

    Kill Shill if you look at last night’s game thread from the 7th inning on you’ll see the anti semite authorities on the forum.

    Washington keeping Madrigal in is obscene at this point.

    Let’s see Brett steal a base now!

  709. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Madrigal has an ERA of 135.00. And Gardner is his responsibility.

  710. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Garder will never forget that first hit off that clown-haired dude!

  711. DFox July 2nd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Yeah when Gardner saw this guy and wanted his first hit, his eyes probably lit up.

  712. TKinDC July 2nd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Save that ball for Gardner – may it be the first of hundreds!

  713. Doreen July 2nd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    No sooner did I say to my family it would be a nice time for the first hit and first RBI, Gardner gets it! Hurray for him! :)

  714. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    KS,

    Re: Horne, they are saying its a “dead arm”. He was put on the DL officially today.

    Its only a 7 day DL in the minors.

    I feel so bad for the kid. If he could have stayed healthy this year, he would have gotten a shot to be the 5th starter once Hughes and Kennedy went down. Just rotten luck.

    I don’t think we see him in the Bronx this year.

    I don’t take what Mark Newman says publicly very seriously.

    He told Chad Jennings earlier in the year that it “wasn’t in their plans” to call up McCutchen to AAA and he was in Scranton 6 days later.

    I think a lot depends on how the bullpen shakes out in the next month. Do they add a lefty specialist? Who is the guy that eventually takes Hawkins place in the ‘pen? Can Veras, Robertson and Ramirez hold up?

    If they call up Melancon, I think they want him to be in a significant role in the ‘pen. Not just be a guy they use occasionally. Like Hawkins, for example.

    I still think we see him at some point after the ASB.

  715. pat July 2nd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    Nice that Brett’s family could be there.

  716. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    Yea for Gardner-his 1st hit against a fellow rookie. Steal 2nd and 3rd to rub it in their faces!!

  717. Don Vito A. Bellamo July 2nd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    ERA of only 135.00 ( and could go higher if Gardner scores ) No matter…he gets free medical and dental for life ( silver lining, dude ! ) :-)

  718. S.A.- No pain..no gain! I still believe in this team July 2nd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    Good job Brett! Congrats!
    So I guess he belongs in this lineup….

  719. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    “The Yankees have been stupid lucky in this game and will win it. Texas has allowed five unearned runs and is now trotting out some guy to make his debut in the seventh inning of a one-run game? Ron Washington is outdoing Girardi.”

    Enough whining Peter.
    May be some of your detractors were right that you are not a Yankee fan. It almost sounds like you do not want the Yankees to win this game.

  720. BUZZ July 2nd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    Gardner steal 2nd and 3rd

  721. The Boss July 2nd, 2008 at 9:59 pm

  727. daver July 2nd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    Do you think that somewhere in cyberpace …the fans on LoTexRangers blog are cursing Ron Washington as an idiot manager for leaving that pitcher in too long?

  728. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    BBfan:

    I never said I was a Yankee fan. Why in the world would you want a fan of the team covering the team and getting information?

    If you don’t think they’re lucky, you don’t know baseball. Texas has allowed five unearned runs. They Yankees also have drawn six walks. Then Texas sent a terrified rookie in to start the seventh inning of a one-run game. Texas all but handed them the game.

    I want to cover a playoff team, that benefits me professionally in myriad ways. But I’m not going to sit here and pretend what happened didn’t happpen.

  746. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 10:04 pm

  764. Zooboy July 2nd, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    I’ll be at the game on the 4th — coming to town to meet the same group of high school buddies I sat with 25 years ago when Dave Righetti no-hit the sawx. Struck out Wade Boggs to end the game. Man that was fun!

  765. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    Gammons’ homeboy, Craig Hansen, just loaded the bases for Pena.

  766. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    Until Christian and Gardner showed up, NYY had speed, but, it wasn’t disruptive speed. They could have that, even if they were just pinch running.

  767. Laura - I'll take A-Rod if Cynthia doesn't want him! July 2nd, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    Why can’t we have games like this every night? Oh, yeah – that little known thing known as reality.

  769. Mike July 2nd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    Still want to DFA Giambi and trade Cano sj44??

  770. SJ44 July 2nd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    Gardner can fly.

    The old adage is, “you can’t steal first base” and that’s true.

    But, if he gets on first, he can steal second and third on anybody.

    He’s not a savior or anything like that.

    He can though help the bottom of the order and give this team a different look. Which it needs, IMO.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he sits tomorrow against Lester. That’s a bad matchup for him.

    I bet he plays against Beckett and I would play him against Wakefield because he has faced knuckleball pitchers in AAA.

    Namely Charlie Haeger of Charlotte and he hit him well.

    Hopefully, Girardi knows that when he makes out the lineup.

  771. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    If you have Extra Innings it might be worth turning to the Sox game. Rays have the bases loaded with no outs. 4-2 Boston. 7th inning.

  772. Russell W July 2nd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    Ideal lineup:

    CF – Gardner
    LF – Damon
    RF – Abreu
    3B – ARod
    DH – Giambi
    C – Posada
    2B – Cano
    SS – Jeter
    1B – Betemit

    Jeter is pissing me off. So put him behind the double machine Cano and at least let his double-plays bring Cano to third.

  773. Hank July 2nd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    meanwhile, Jeter is 0-4.

    enough with all the commercials.

    I’m not paying for 0-4 and limited range, I could dig up Fred “chicken” Stanley to do that!!

  774. EricNS July 2nd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    When will Jeter get a hit again??????????????

    WHAT Did i say again?

  781. The Fallen Phoenix July 2nd, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    I disagree on Melancon, SJ, because I don’t think the Yankees want to risk doing to Melancon what they did to Hughes — appear to rush him.

    Granted, I think the problem with Hughes in 2007 was more the injury than stunted development (after all, he more-or-less held his own after he got his legs back under him), but unless the Yankees absolutely need Melancon this year, I think they rather he stay in the minors all year.

    But you’re right, it definitely has to do with how Veras-Edwar-Robertson hold up. Cox and Strickland are options down in AAA, too, who I think are ahead of Melancon on the depth chart *this season*.

  782. sunny615 July 2nd, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    Let’s be clear here – Pete Abe is not a Yankee fan. He’s a Yankee beat writer. The only thing I’m aware of since being on this blog since it’s inception is that Pete’s a Patriots (football) fan. He works in baseball/news – he’s not a fan of it. His job is not to suck up to the Yankee FO and make this team out to be shinier than it really is. He reports the news with no bias – as should all reporters/beat writers.

    What baseball reporter would admit he was a Yankees fan even if he was one. Newspapers prize the illusion of objectivity almost as much as they revere the First Amendment.

    Only the yahoos on the radio have the luxury of being partisan.

  795. BBFan July 2nd, 2008 at 10:11 pm

    “If you don’t think they’re lucky, you don’t know baseball.”

    That is exactly your problem Peter.
    If someone disagrees with you, you put them down saying they do not know baseball.

    It is part of the game errors happen. There were number of games that Yanks lost becasue of errors and unearned runs. Would you call those losses unlucky using the same logic? I do not think that would be right.

  796. TKinDC July 2nd, 2008 at 10:11 pm

    Since Jason Starks of ESPN really wanted to see A-Rod in the homerun contest – maybe we can just show him that video and he’ll be satisfied.

  797. will July 2nd, 2008 at 10:11 pm

  801. Yankee Trader July 2nd, 2008 at 10:11 pm

    What a lucky guess, that A-Rod was going to hit a homer. So much for his wifes cheating on him affecting his play!

  802. tim boat July 2nd, 2008 at 10:12 pm

    well, Boss Junior looks pretty smart after the Yankee offense finally shows up, albeit most of the damage was done against a Triple A pitcher but hey, we’ll take it.

    Always nice to see the “best setup man in the 8th inning (Hansen)”, according to the “Hall of Famer”, (Gammons) spit it up again.

    The irony is, Kyle Farnsworth is better than anybody the Red Sox have to pitch 8th innings this year. That’s amazing.

    Oh by the way – nice job Joe – let’s take out AROD and Giambi an inning to early… lets hope it doesn’t bite us.

    Indeed, SJ44, Indeed.

    It’s an embarassment the way Gammons has become a stooge and a tool of the Red Sox front-office. His partisanship has so distorted his responsibility to be objective that he’s made a mockery of his job.

    I can’t fathom why so many baseball writers genuflect at his feet. He probably plays guitar better than he writes prose.

    You want to read an impressive baseball writer. Read Verducci.

  851. A-nother meaningless homerun by -rod July 2nd, 2008 at 10:20 pm

    Bradon,

    He is hitting some low 200 in runners in scoring postion.

    He needs to carry this team, he is in his prime and no other yankee is. PLus he hasnt logged any post-season baggage like Jeter, Posada. They look screwed up from all those games. For example Jeter is still relatively in his prime for his age in baseball, but he just looks old and run down. I really have the feeling that those october baseball games and other meaningful regular season games over the past 13 years have got to him.

  852. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:20 pm

    .
    Don’t do it, dude. It’s only a game. You know that the Rays will fade and it will be the Yankees and the Red Sox in the end….Tampa is a “rabbit” and they will never be able to finish the marathon…

  883. daver July 2nd, 2008 at 10:32 pm

    I like this line-up…Cano, Betemit, and Garner in the 7-8-9.

  884. ray (sox fan) July 2nd, 2008 at 10:32 pm

    Even though the Sox are getting killed tonight there are some good things for the Sox. While Cano is needing a triple and home run for the cycle, the Yankees favorite whipping boy Pedroia is just a single away from the cycle and got those hits against Kazmir.

  885. Laura - I'll take A-Rod if Cynthia doesn't want him! July 2nd, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    Hank Steinbrenner is a frackin’ genius.

    Damon’s RBI single video on GameDay still shows and the Holliday’s rbi single vs the Padres.

  887. The Boss July 2nd, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    Aceves will get a shot if he adjusts well at SWB after he gets off the DL this weekend.

  888. YankeeVIP July 2nd, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    take this offensive outburst with a grain of salt.
    alot of unearned runs and scoring off a kid making his debut means nothing.

    this is what an mlb team should do against a AAA pitcher

  892. daver July 2nd, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    Hank Steinbrenner rules. Why didn’t he say something sooner?

  893. Greg Cohen July 2nd, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    Hey Peter,

    A-Rod appeared to be angry with Melky. After his HR, he went up to him spoke to him sternly for a few minutes. A-Rod looked like he was mad, and Melky looked like a child being punished. Can you find out what that was about?

    Did anyone else see this?

  894. Laura - I'll take A-Rod if Cynthia doesn't want him! July 2nd, 2008 at 10:35 pm

  897. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:35 pm

    Odd as this sounds don’t totally count out KC against the Rays. They are a quirky team and peel off wins when you don’t expect it.

  898. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 10:35 pm

    Can we just be happy that the bats have come to life, no matter who they were hitting against? Honestly, they’ve been shut down by everybody of late. Who cares who it is they break out against?

  899. Groundhoggator July 2nd, 2008 at 10:35 pm

  901. Nick in SF July 2nd, 2008 at 10:36 pm

    Behold the power of the invisible hand: thank you Hal!

  902. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:36 pm

    Hey Ray go to SOSH. Sox fans are bad luck!

    Seriously do we have to keep padding the score? Tomorrow we won’t hear a peep out of the bats if they keep this up.

  903. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 10:37 pm

    Sweet pick by Aki…Ellsbury slump continues.

  904. CB July 2nd, 2008 at 10:37 pm

    Good to see the bats finally put together some hits to score some runs. The offense still needs to show that it can score runs when they aren’t hitting home runs. Hopefully they’ll build some momentum.

    Cano is making good contact now fairly consistently. He hasn’t gone on a truly torrid streak yet so his overall average is still lagging but he’s coming around slowly. .295 in May, .285 in June.

    He still needs to hit the ball with more authority. He’s not driving the ball in the gaps like he can. I think we’ll see that at some point in the near future now that he’s making contact.

    The Red Sox have a problem with their bull pen that is very serious and will only get worse as the innings build up.

    They have very few internal options in terms of minor league pitching depth. Masterson was always a guy who people thought would be a reliever but now they need him in the pen. There’s been some talk about them possibly bringing up Dan Bard but I can’t see them doing that given how wild he was last year. They’d really be rushing him.

    Boston is probably going to have to look to make a trade for a reliever. They have the prospects to do it – but we saw how the Gagne trade worked out last year. Trading for a reliever is always a wild card. Their performances just vary so much.

    The yankee pen has been a strength this season. I think it’ll continue to get better as Veras, Ramirez and Robertson get more experience and as guys like Cox and Melancon get called up.

  905. Rishi July 2nd, 2008 at 10:37 pm

    mel – Pettite and Lester (I’m going to the game)

  906. Groundhoggator July 2nd, 2008 at 10:37 pm

    maybe the Attny General can break his o-fer streak.

  911. Pooh Bear July 2nd, 2008 at 10:39 pm

    You think they might want to save some of these runs for when they need it.

  912. David Robertson for Setup July 2nd, 2008 at 10:39 pm

    Damn , only scored 18. Thought our O was dead you guys? Check my Posts this morning. Called a blowout game

  913. CB July 2nd, 2008 at 10:39 pm

    Sorry meant to write that many people thought Masterson would project to be a reliever in the majors but now Boston needs him in the rotation…

  914. Laura - I'll take A-Rod if Cynthia doesn't want him! July 2nd, 2008 at 10:39 pm

    I hope we have something left for tomorrow.

  915. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 10:40 pm

  916. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    Rishi – I hope that you bring them good luck and a Yankees victory tomorrow night.

  917. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    Little dwarf freak Pedroia got a hit. 7-5. But two outs.

  918. Pooh Bear July 2nd, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    ray (sox fan) July 2nd, 2008 at 10:32 pm

    Even though the Sox are getting killed tonight there are some good things for the Sox. While Cano is needing a triple and home run for the cycle, the Yankees favorite whipping boy Pedroia is just a single away from the cycle and got those hits against Kazmir.

    I guess you need to find a silver lining in getting swept out of first place. And also why are you here?

  919. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    Memo to Yankee Pitchers:

    Pedroia is on FIRE…pitch accordingly.

  920. mel July 2nd, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    Rishi,

    Thanks.

    What’s the team record of games you’ve been to? Just curious…

  921. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    I really hope J.D. Drew cools off soon. His Big Papi imitation is both bizarre and annoying.

  922. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    Laura he probably didn’t want the second kid. If you remember his wife got pregnant pretty much right after he got caught with the canadian stripper. Bet it was one of those “the only way I stay is if we have another kid” deals.

  923. MrMulligan (Is Xavier in Pinstripes, yet?) July 2nd, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    Up 11…HAWKINS TIME, baby

  924. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    OK. I think that LaTroy Hawkins can handle this.

  925. Rishi July 2nd, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    I believe it is 3-0 for the games I’ve been to this year :) and I have at least 4 more to go (including tomorrow)

  926. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 2nd, 2008 at 10:43 pm

    mark come on Cynthia wouldn’t do that, IDK that for sure but I hope not.

  927. canocabrera July 2nd, 2008 at 10:43 pm

    I saw it also Greg, Alex may have been tryng to teach Melky something.. Melky is very playful and close with A-rod, I doubt he was seriously angry with him.

    I would also be interested in finding out what the talk was about, Peter

  928. Rishi July 2nd, 2008 at 10:43 pm

    I should mention that I thought I was going to be at 2-1, but I was at that “first walk off win of the year”…so i’m perfect so far

  929. Laura - I'll take A-Rod if Cynthia doesn't want him! July 2nd, 2008 at 10:43 pm

    I’m surprised that A-Rod’s wife is leaving him now when there’s much more money yet to be placed on the table.

    Drew makes the ceremonial third out.

  934. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 10:44 pm

    This is the proper time to use Hawkins. Hell, this is the proper time to use the Run Fairy himself, Felix Heredia! What ever happened to the suckiest lefty specialist in Yankee history?

  935. The Boss July 2nd, 2008 at 10:44 pm

    Hopefully Big Poopy is done for the year. Good riddance.

  936. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 10:44 pm

    CB GREAT AND ACCURATE POST.. I guess Delcarmen the the guy from NY(St. Johns) still are not there..

    Boston is vulnerable as are all teams in MLB this yr. I was rooting for Boston tonight. I do not want Tampa to get too far ahead of the yanks.. this team does not mean much, they did it against the worst of the Texas pen.. Washington threw away the game and when you are on a roll you should go for it, Girardi might have made that mistake against Oliver Perez the other day also…

    THis is Hawwkins only role complete garbage time, again he stinks and should be replaced woih cox, melancon, or STRICKLAND..

    Tampa has issues also so remember that they will not keep this up…The Yanks need a starting pitcher for at least 1 month or more…

    I will take any win we get but again this game means nothing do it for 4 weeks and then talk to me…

  937. Laura - I'll take A-Rod if Cynthia doesn't want him! July 2nd, 2008 at 10:45 pm

    Gammons is lying. No way they would let it get out that Ortiz is done for the season. They are just trying to lull other teams into thinking that Ortiz is out.

  938. David Robertson for Setup July 2nd, 2008 at 10:45 pm

    game…Good game Brett. Melky will be out of your way soon enough.

  941. Ron July 2nd, 2008 at 10:46 pm

    Well, we needed this one badly.

    Night all.

  942. Fran July 2nd, 2008 at 10:46 pm

    Laura – they’re separated. They can still get back together. Maybe after the separation they’ll realize that they want to be together.

    Rishi,

    Great! Just throw the salt over your shoulder, take your rabbit’s foot keychain, go get a 4-leaf clover tat (fake of course), and whatever else brings luck. :)

  951. Laura - I'll take A-Rod if Cynthia doesn't want him! July 2nd, 2008 at 10:48 pm

    “Laura – they’re separated. They can still get back together. Maybe after the separation they’ll realize that they want to be together.”

    Perhaps, but if the cheating rumors are true for both of them, not sure that’s likely. I never like to see a family destroyed. I hope they can work it out. If not, I’ll be happy to give A-Rod my number. :)

  952. The Boss July 2nd, 2008 at 10:48 pm

    I like Cox but he has been hyped since he was Street’s backup at Texas. Robertson came alive in the Cape Cod League and has been great ever since. Robertson > Cox. He throws harder and his pitches have just as much movement. I think there’s room for Strickland, Cox, and Robertson if some team wants to pick up Krazy Kyle and LaTroy.

  953. David Robertson for Setup July 2nd, 2008 at 10:48 pm

    Just ordered my #11 authentic jersey. Biggest Brett Gardner fan

    I’d rather have the Sox come to the Stadium on a losing streak. They just got off a tough series. That’s good for us, especially winning tonight.

    I still hate that we had to play for so many runs. It never never never works out for us the next day anwyay.

  960. Don Vito A. Bellamo July 2nd, 2008 at 10:51 pm

    mark…last I checked, it was a free country…he does not come in here to stir things up,,,he is NOT a troll and ask Pete if Boston fans are forbidden on his blog why don’t ya ? His team is getting clobberred,,,the Yankees are scoring almost 20 runs and he is being totally civil. Take it down a notch, dude….this is not communist China here.

  964. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 10:53 pm

    mel I don’t care how cool he is. This is a Yankee forum. I believe there are certain things you stick with and one is keeping out Sox fans when our games are on. They don’t belong here.

    Let him be cool here the other 20 hours of the day when Pete puts up endless bits of information.

  965. Ronald July 2nd, 2008 at 10:54 pm

    He must have told Cynthia, See You Next Tuesday.

  966. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 10:54 pm

    If gardner can keep his OBP at a good level with his speed he can give them a weapon the yhave not had in forever..

    the only 2 stats that will count for him offensively is OBP and dtolen bases…He is obviously like Ellsbury whom the sux fans and espn have annointed as a superstar. he is a good player but time will tell how good…

    Time always tells how good this guys really are………

    Melky is definitely going to se a reduction in playing time in the short term for sure….Melky needs to stay around for the rest of the season for sure and we will see how things play out. Call me a fool I think Melky still has a future but maybe he needs to eliminate the hitting from the right side if that is possible!!!!!!!

    Kyle still walked 2 so what is new…

    again the yanks need timely hitting to improve and at least 1 starter to add to the team…

  967. MrMulligan (Xavier for LF in '08) July 2nd, 2008 at 10:54 pm

  987. CB July 2nd, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    It’s good to see Gardner playing well but I think it’s important to have realistic expectations for him (as it is for Melky).

    Centerfielders just aren’t that good. So for Gardner to be valuable he doesn’t need to be great – he just needs to be better than average offensively.

    Gardners game is largely his legs so getting on base is key for him.

    That said right now no centerfielder n baseball has an OBP over .400. And only one CF has an OBP over .380 (BJ Upton).

    That’s the range of expectations that Gardner needs to meet. Because he’s going to hit for very little power he’ll need to have a higher than average OBP to be valuable but if he puts up a .350-.360 OBP that’ll be OK.

  988. David Robertson for Setup July 2nd, 2008 at 11:00 pm

After you do that, both of you need to go down to the nearest intersection and start telling all the cars there where and when they should stop and turn, after that…head down to the library and tell the librarian to start making sure that NOBODY talks AT ALL, EVER…..there has to be a lot of this “work” for the 2 of you to do…you could become, like, Super Heroes…it’ll be fun for ya ! :-)

    that’s an incredible play by BJ Upton – that’s what I was talking about confidence with the outfielders – I knew off the bat that BJ Upton catches that ball, with Melky I just hope he doesn’t crash into the wall and gets it in quick enough that everyone doesn’t score. Melky’s doing a great job in the outfield but he’s no BJ defensively

  1033. CB July 2nd, 2008 at 11:13 pm

    The quality of TV and radio announcing for baseball is atrocious as a whole for the sport.

    The Tampa Bay announcers said that Upton’s catch in CF was better than Willie Mays over the shoulder catch off Vic Wertz in the 54 World Series.

    What an embarrassment for the sport. That is just inexcusable. I guess the Tampa announcer thinks a July game is as important as game one of the world series. And I’m sure he’s well versed with how enormous center field was in the polo grounds.

    Horrible call – just embarrassing.

  1034. rconn23 July 2nd, 2008 at 11:13 pm

    I’m not so sure the Rays collapse in the second half. Two factors – David Price coming up and serving the Joba role in the bullpen and whether they go out and get C.C at the trade deadline.

    speaking of Navaro.. he is a great example of why guys need time.. He is like 25 now and is hitting 300+.. I do not think he will keep it up but he is having a ver y very good season..The morale of the story is do not give up on young guys, take your time before you give up..

    Edwar got torched in a few games last yr. and a few games this yr. but the reality is he has pitched pretty well. HE is a decent relief pitcher…

    again Hawkins wastes a spot in the pen and he is only used in blowouts so Veras and otehrs will get overused.. The whole roster of 25 need to be as good as possible…

  1053. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    Gardner has the same skills as a couple of good speedsters, Brett Butler, but there’s a lot of former Yankee, The Rapid City Rocket, Dave Collins, too. Only difference would be that Collins was a switch hitter, but, as left handed hitters, quite similar. Every once in a while, they can shock you with a bomb (maybe not a bomb, but, a tomahawk missile).

  1054. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 11:21 pm

    David R I hope you end up being right. 9 runs is a lot but I’m talking more our double digit games.

  1056. Frank Discussion July 2nd, 2008 at 11:21 pm

    I hope the Rays fade in the second half but I’m certainly not counting on it. They appear to be a very well balanced team. Amazing how the character of the AL East has changed so quickly. Loved the fact that they rubbed in the sweep by playing “Sweet Caroline”, should have thrown in some of that insipid “Dropkick Murphy’s” for good measure.

    Gardner is exciting to watch when he gets on base, almost like he is running with a turbocharger hooked up. Yankees need an asset like this. More impressive work from Edwar and a great show by Giambi.

  1057. Rishi July 2nd, 2008 at 11:21 pm

    wow – that must sting: lose the game and the other team plays your song…

  1058. stuart July 2nd, 2008 at 11:22 pm

    I bet Gardner will start tommorrow but don’t get ready for his induction into Cooperstown yet…

    Again the Yanks as a whole only hit mistakes great hitters also hit good pitches they need to do more of that.

    The Upton catch was nice but far far from a great catch.. Magrane on the tampa broadcasts is over the top, they are like 21 yr olds on the birthday night, they don’t know what to do with themselves with this success.

    remember baseball is a mean tough game, it is a long season and the team toughest between the ears usually succeeds……

  1059. Old Goat July 2nd, 2008 at 11:22 pm

    The Rays are a good team, but there has never been pressure on them before. After the AS break is when the pressure builds. Lets see how they can handle it. That’s not to say they will crumble, but being as young as they are they could slide back.

    Look at what the D’Backs look like now compared to how they started the season. Any team can look great, like say the Mets last year, and then poof. Its why they actually have to play the games.

    Nice to see Brett get his first hit. He is fast and its a joy to see that kind of speed on the bases. The biggest test for him will be if he can start getting on base enough to make a difference.

    Seems like Giambi opened the flood gates for the Yankee bats. I hope this marks a start of another win streak coming.

  1060. mark - HANK STEINBRENNER IS THE MAN July 2nd, 2008 at 11:23 pm

  1061. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    CB, Dwayne Statzz and Joe Magraine have always blown the Tampa horn and trashed every other city, team and player, especially if they are the New York Yankees. He’s still bitter about getting dumped by Steinbrenner.

  1062. CB July 2nd, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    “I understand your point, but that Mays catch is the most overrated catch ever. But again, I hear you.”

    No its not. It really isn’t. Centerfield in the polo ground was 485 feet – 485. Wurtz hit the ball 450 feet.

    There is no centerfield today even remotely close to the polo grounds. Not even close.

    Centerfield at Tropicana is 404 feet.

    The over the shoulder aspect of Mays catch isn’t what made it so great. Other centerfielder have made catches of similar technical difficulty.

    But what makes that play so great is how far Mays had to run while catching the ball over his shoulder. Watch that whole catch off the bat – the distance mays had to run for that ball is unbelievable.

    And on top of that it happened in Game 1 of the World series in the eigth inning with runners on 1st and 2nd.

    If that’s over rated then I have no idea what a good play in baseball is.

  1063. Rishi July 2nd, 2008 at 11:25 pm

  1064. David Robertson for Setup July 2nd, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    If the Rays can hold of the Yankees and Red Sox in the pressure of the 2nd half, then I say they are the favorites to win it all. Its not like its the Yankees or Sox looking behind and only seeing 1 team behind them, the Rays have 2, and they happen to be the masters of the AL East

  1065. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 11:27 pm

    the nesn boys carron and eck are in panic mode over there 5 game deficit in the loss column..

    the problem for the sux is there pen is not very good and daisuke throws so many pitch’s he i a 5 inning guy..

    there rotation is absolutely better then the yanks but it is not very good and if Wang was there the Yanks rotation would have been better..the yanks need something out of the 4th and 5th starters that is the key..

    If ORtiz does not come back they could be in trouble, but you know one thing boston will battle they may lose but they will not quit in my opinion…

  1067. mel July 2nd, 2008 at 11:29 pm

    Was Tampa Bay mocking Boston with ‘Sweet Caroline’? They must be mad that 90% of the fans there are Sox fans.

    Heard Hinske (team leader) on the radio the other day. Interviewer asked about the fans. He said, “Yeah. That. Well, instead of 10,000 we’re getting 20,000. So that’s something.”

  1068. CB July 2nd, 2008 at 11:29 pm

    The Rays really have a lot of growing up to do. So do their announcers.

    Good for them. About time.

    About Sweet Caroline. Good that they pushed it in the Sox faces. The Red Sox have always bullied the Rays back to the days that Pedro Martinez would start brawls. Then the last time out that punk Crisp charged the mound and the Rays got the majority of the suspensions. I’m sure there’s no love lost between the two teams. So they gave it to them twice this time. First they swept them, then they played their song after the sweep. Doesn’t bother me a bit.

  1076. gayle July 2nd, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    One of the things I found most interesting in the post game interviews were the comments from BOTH Damon and Giambi about them being a tired team (please note all those people that yell about Girardi sitting players every once ina while).

    In addition even more telling was Damon’s comments about Gardner and how much he brings to the team and how he shouldnt have to worry about being sent down and how he hopes he can continue to spell some of the older guys . The quote was something to the effect we could have used him earlier in the year and to spell ome of us older guys and hopes he continues to do just that.

    I by no means think Gardner is a savior we have other issues but nice to hear those comments also very telling comments.

  1077. David Robertson for Setup July 2nd, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    Did Gammons report Ortiz being out the rest of the season today, or when the injury happened?

  1078. David Robertson for Setup July 2nd, 2008 at 11:39 pm

    To an extent Gardner is a savior. Will he be the reason we make or miss the playoffs? No absolutley not. But he brings a type of baseball this team is not accustomed to. He will show it some more as he plays more, but 2/2 SBs in 3 games says it all

    They’ll still be thinking about that series when they play us, no matter what they say.

  1086. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    CB, have you ever seen the finish to the Mays catch? The throw he made to second base. Runners on first and second base in a 2-2 tie and one out, and the only runner to tag up was the guy on second base. Liddle, who through the pitch to Wertz, smiled when Durocher came out to the mound to get him. Liddle smiled to Marv Grissom, who relieved him with two out, and said, I got my guy…now it’s your turn.”

  1087. mel July 2nd, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    That’s the reason why they played Melky everyday for 2 years. He struggles when he doesn’t play everyday.

    A.J. hits the first pitch of the 10th inning to win the game for the White Sox (blown save by Linebrink).

    Raise your hand if watching Gardner run the bases puts a smile on your face. He would’ve had third easily if Damon didn’t foul off the pitch. This kid is fun to watch. I hope he does well.

    Well there’s Yadier freakin’ Molina

  1091. Pepitone July 2nd, 2008 at 11:59 pm

    AH, bless you CB!

    You are so right that catch by Mays in the 54 World Series is probably the greatest catch in Series history. Plus, he threw an absolute strike to second base to double up the guy on second. People forget that Cleveland had the best record in baseball history at the time and were supposed to sweep the Giants, and the Giants end up sweeping them!

    Baseball announcers today are atrocious because they have no respect for the tradition and history of the game. The best baseball color commentator ever was Tony Kubek. I also liked Joe Garagiola mainly for his baseball stories and love of the game’s history.

  1092. GreenBeret7 July 2nd, 2008 at 11:59 pm

    CB, that Tampa organization has been an embarrassment from top to bottom for 10 years…in every phase of the organization. It’s almost like they want to be know as being a bush league operation. For years, they had their pitchers throw at batters because they couldn’t get the hitters out. Their base runners always slid in spikes up. It didn’t make any difference who the manager was. They drafted goonish thugs for years, partly on talent, but, mainly that’s the types of home crowds they drew. This year, they finally have the talent, but, kept the mentality. I dislike the Red Sox as much as anyone, but, Statzz’ comments and then playing “Sweet caroline” was beyond bush league. You watch. Blood will be spilled on Tampa’s next trip to Boston. The players, regardless of the score, run the bases to pile up the numbers. I really thought more of Joe Maddon than that, but, he’s got the same attitude.

  1093. mel July 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Brandon,

    Rembember that freakin’ homerun that he hit in the ’06 World Series?

  1094. Don Vito A. Bellamo July 3rd, 2008 at 12:03 am

    55-40 at the break is going to be sah-weet !

  1095. YankeesTech July 3rd, 2008 at 12:07 am

    Sorry if I am dumb headed but can someone explain to me how this song “Sweet caroline” kicks dirt on the redsox’s wagon?

  1096. Mark July 3rd, 2008 at 12:09 am

    David Robertson for Setup-

    got any further info on Longoria and Erin Andrews?

  1097. YankeeJosh July 3rd, 2008 at 12:10 am

    Old Goat and Green Beret,

    You are both absolutely right about Sweet Caroline. The DiamondBacks did that to New York, New York in 2001. Literally blowing up the song after the World Series (and just a month and a half after 9/11). It just is so Bush League. Act like you’ve won before and expect to win.

  1098. gayle July 3rd, 2008 at 12:11 am

    CB the problem with your earlier comment about expectations for CF’s you have people like Michael Kay on the radio today saying that the NY Yankees cant have someone like Melky in CF when they had people like Joe D, Mantle, Murcer, Williams so you need to have offensive power houses in that position and as we know most people take what i said on sports talk radio as gospel for some reason

  1099. pat July 3rd, 2008 at 12:12 am

    Sweet Caroline is to Fenway like New York, New York is to Yankee Stadium. Rays playing it after the sweep is like mocking them.

  1100. mel July 3rd, 2008 at 12:13 am

    YankeesTech,

    I think it’s their version of Sinatra’s “New York, New York”. They play it at Fenway. When they win.

    Let’s hope that Boston’s road struggles continue…19-27…

  1101. Pepitone July 3rd, 2008 at 12:15 am

    Hey, CB, got a trivia question for you-

    Which New York Yankee pitcher won two games in the 64 World Series, then later wrote a book that blew the lid off MLB? Also, tell me the quirk he had when he threw off the mound.

  1102. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 3rd, 2008 at 12:15 am

    Brandon,

    Rembember that freakin’ homerun that he hit in the ‘06 World Series?

    Mel how can I forget that freakin’ shot

  1103. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 3rd, 2008 at 12:17 am

    CB your here ?

    Either you , SJ or Whozat has to answer me a question are the Yankees now converting Wilkins De La Rosa into a starter ?

  1104. whozat July 3rd, 2008 at 12:18 am

    “Brett is a starter, he is not no bench role player.”

    The guy didn’t light the minors on fire, is 24 already, and has done nothing to show that he can keep a .370+ OBP in the bigs. With his skillset, if he’s not getting on base near 40% of the time…you’re damned right he’s a role player.

  1105. pat July 3rd, 2008 at 12:20 am

    Whether they are winning or losing, Sweet Caroline is played in middle of the 8th inning.

  1106. Pepitone July 3rd, 2008 at 12:21 am

    Hey, fellas, I gotta tell you something.

    Guy I met last week just moved out here from Boston. I asked him if he had ever been to Fenway, he said yes and that would be the last time too. I asked him why, he said he sat in the right field bleacher area, and all there were was a bunch of drunks cussing at the players and getting into fights. He said it was the worst experience of his life – and he’s a Red Sox fan!!!!

    Ahhhh…Red Sox fans, gotta luv em.

  1107. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2008 at 12:22 am

    Joe Pep, that would be Jim Bouton. His straight overhand delivery always made his hat fall off and he fell towards the first base foul line.

  1108. mel July 3rd, 2008 at 12:22 am

    Thanks, Pat.

    Uncool, but still wickedly delicious. Couldn’t happen to a better team.

  1109. whozat July 3rd, 2008 at 12:22 am

    “are the Yankees now converting Wilkins De La Rosa into a starter ?”

    Dunno. He’s been starting lately, but maybe that’s just to get him innings. He’s not been a pitcher for long, he needs experience.

  1110. Guiseppe Franco July 3rd, 2008 at 12:24 am

    The guy didn’t light the minors on fire, is 24 already, and has done nothing to show that he can keep a .370+ OBP in the bigs. With his skillset, if he’s not getting on base near 40% of the time…you’re damned right he’s a role player.

    What you’re not understanding is that he’s saying that Gardner is going to be a starter wherever he plays – whether it’s with the Yanks or in Scranton.

    The organization has said as much. They didn’t promote him to sit him on the bench.

    Besides, that’s where Melky belongs – on the bench.

  1111. mel July 3rd, 2008 at 12:24 am

    Mets lose. Walkoff HR by Glaus.

  1112. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 3rd, 2008 at 12:25 am

    Thanks Whozat.

    Damn Mets flirted w/ that 9th inning. Troy Glaus walks off

  1113. pat July 3rd, 2008 at 12:26 am

    Who is Jim Bouton for $800
    and
    What is Ball Four for $1000.

  1114. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2008 at 12:27 am

    Whozat, DeLaRosa’s going back to starting, as of right now. Six inning start tonight. Errors killed him. Great looking young pitcher. He and Jonathan Ortiz made quite a 8th-9th inning combination.

  1115. Justin July 3rd, 2008 at 12:31 am

    what happened to the days of post-game audio?

  1116. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2008 at 12:41 am

    I think the Yankees won two WS with Mickey Rivers in CF.

    He was great, though!

  1117. Mop-Up Man July 3rd, 2008 at 12:45 am

    Well, interesting developments going on all over the baseball world tonight. Here are my usual 5 points about tonight’s game:

    1. I’ll tell ya, it’s going to be hard not to fall in love with Brett Gardner (in a plutonic idolatry way, of course). You can already tell that he brings a fiery cockiness to the game and gives every play his all.

    2. Gotta love the standard “pile-on” A-Rod home run. Classic.

    3. “El Sid” pitched about the way I expected him to. Does he even make 3 more Yankee starts before his DFA?

    4. Kind of nice not having Melky’s auto-out in the lineup tonight. I wonder how much of a difference that made considering Gardner’s 1 for 5. But, you can see that Gardner gets a better jump on balls and maybe that makes up for Melky’s arm.

    5. Wake up, Jeter! We need you. No more routine DP balls hit to second. Hesus!

  1118. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 3rd, 2008 at 12:45 am

    GB7 at what velocity was he throwing into the 5th inning ?

  1119. zach July 3rd, 2008 at 12:45 am

    does anyone have anything on the international signings today?

    thanks

  1120. whozat July 3rd, 2008 at 12:48 am

    “Whozat, DeLaRosa’s going back to starting, as of right now.”

    Back? Wasn’t he a position player for a couple years, and then switched to relief pitching?

    Either way, he’s in the sally league and this is his second year as a hurler. When he hits AA, it might be time to pay attention to him :-)

  1121. whozat July 3rd, 2008 at 12:51 am

    “What you’re not understanding is that he’s saying that Gardner is going to be a starter wherever he plays – whether it’s with the Yanks or in Scranton.”

    Sure, for now.

    I’m saying that there are a lot of people who get carried away looking at young players. Especially fast ones. Brett Gardner is not going to be a difference maker for the Yankees. Hitting with guys on base, coupled with Jeter and Abreu getting on base closer to their career averages is the only thing that will save the season. If Brett can get on base more consistently than Melky…done, keep him in the lineup.

  1122. Guiseppe Franco July 3rd, 2008 at 12:57 am

    whozat,

    Not looking for Gardner to be a savior.

    No matter how productive Gardner is over the next few weeks, I’m quite certain he’ll perform better than the .215 / .275 / .280 numbers that Melky has provided since May 1.

    And that’s all I care about.

  1123. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 3rd, 2008 at 1:00 am

    Whozat I meant him starting over Melky, who has been beyond terrible right now and for some reason now Robi is turning it on. Me thinks these 2 are not going to make it.

  1124. zach July 3rd, 2008 at 1:05 am

    of course cano is going to stay he hit 340 2 years ago and has hit 300 for 3 straight years, i never doubted him

  1125. Pepitone July 3rd, 2008 at 1:05 am

    GreenBeret7 -

    You win the coffee maker and the trip to downtown Dubuque!!

    Now its your turn to give me one…

  1126. ML July 3rd, 2008 at 1:11 am

    Pepitone,

    Come on, it’s not like the Bleacher Creatures are that much better. There are crappy fans on both sides of the Sox-Yanks divide.

  1127. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2008 at 1:18 am

    Brandon, DeLaRosa was still hitting 91-92. The slider is tight and getting better with a small changeup. If he and Ramirez stood side by side, they still couldn’t make a shadow. Control was much better, tonight. He only allowed one earned run, but, Angellini’s error hurt him. Romine also had another error, but, Montero had two hits.

  1128. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2008 at 1:25 am

    Whozat, yeah, DeLaRosa was an outfielder to start with, the converted to pitcher with the plans to make him a starter, but, it’s only been recently that he started. He had been a 2 and sometimes 3 inning pitcher. He has the fastball, and the makings of a real good slider ( they say slider, but, looks more like a cutter). Needs a curve or, better, a changup, to offset everything.

  1129. Brandon (Jose Tabata stays) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 3rd, 2008 at 1:26 am

    91-92 into the 5th hmmm…this is a work in prgress that’s off his regular speed.

  1130. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2008 at 1:29 am

    Joe Pep, there are some cuties in Dubuque, but, I’d like to exchange the coffee maker for a coke machine (full).

    Same series. Yanks and Bouton won game three 2-1. Who and how did the game end and who was the losing pitcher?

  1131. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2008 at 1:31 am

    Brandon, it’s the longest he’s ever pitched and it was humid. He needs to build the stamina, and, if he remains a starter and makes it, NYY might have Pettitte’s left handed replacement.

  1132. KATGILL July 3rd, 2008 at 3:24 am

    i simply wish to state that i despise the tampa bay faction of evildoers. i was actually cheering for VARITEK to hit the stupid ball in the 9th.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune.
