    Boyyou feel really cheated if you were at this game.

    Hopefully they win on the makeup day.

  2. V Torch June 18th, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    Maybe signing Pedro will fire this team up.

  3. jennifer June 18th, 2009 at 10:23 pm

    I think the Yankees are very stupid letting Brett get on the plane. They should learn from the Ryan Church situation. He won’t be able to play tomorrow anyway. Let me stay in his own bed tonight and follow the team down in a day or two.

  4. Gates June 18th, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    They are seriously letting him take the plane to Miami?

    Mets medical staff is off the hook…. there is a new incompetent sheriff in town.

  5. jennifer June 18th, 2009 at 10:26 pm

    Oh well that didn’t come out right. :lol:

    Let HIM stay in his own bed tonight and follow the team down in a day or two.

  6. tim boat June 18th, 2009 at 10:29 pm

    Let Brett stay home and lay down while the Yankees go lay down on the road for the Marlins…

  7. Erica - newly OPPC June 18th, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    You mean flying Ryan Church all over the country was bad for his concussion????

    I have never heard of anything like that

  8. Jon June 18th, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    We face 2 rookies in this series, and Josh Johnson who only Teixeria has seen before.

    Shaping up to be another great series.

  9. Erica - newly OPPC June 18th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    Yeah Jenn-

    Its okay. I know you want to sleep with GGBG now. I am on to you :-)

  10. Alex June 18th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    so wait, this explains how you use the ticket as a coupon, but what if you just want to use it to get a free ticket? same thing, you have to go to a Yankee Stadium Advanced Ticket window?

  11. jennifer June 18th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Erica- yes. A concussion is swelling of the brain. When you fly you are in a pressurized cabin.

  12. Cash is King June 18th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Some of you need to stop praticing medicine on the internet.

  13. Cash is King June 18th, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    You don’t know if he has a concussion unless you examined him.

  14. Fireman June 18th, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    I guarantee that the Sux sweep them

    Because that’s what the Sux do… they sweep bad teams at home like they should. They gain 3 easy games in the standings, like Tampa did, like Toronto will, while we lose 2 games.

  15. Erica - newly OPPC June 18th, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    Jenn- I was going for (and failing at) sarcasm. LOL

  16. Bronx Jeers June 18th, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    If a concussion is swelling of the brain it looks like Gardner’s had about 1,000 of them.

    Mars Attacks?

  17. Betsy June 18th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    Trevor, I said the Yankees didn’t play that well against Tampa and people claimed that I (or we, because other people noticed it, too) should just take a win no matter how we get it. Well, the Yankees did not play well no matter how you slice it against Tampa and they played even worse in Boston. Each series afterwards has been seen progressively worse play……

  18. m June 18th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Doreen,

    Oh, my goodness. I can’t believe that you’re abandoning ship, too! And how can you not feel good about the pitching? It’s better than it’s been in long while. Losing, losing, losing, but still in the hunt with lots of time left. I remember you doing this two years ago. And then Damon came out and said they’re going to make the postseason, and what do you know? They did.

    Yes, we’ve been losing. But if the pitching gets on track, it gives us a chance.

    And Betsy, I’ll take you up on your challenge. I’m not cockeyed, but I am an optimist.

  19. jennifer June 18th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Erica- I reread it and now see it. :lol: You didn’t fail, I failed to read it.

  20. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Betsy-I’m still a “take a win no matter how you slice it” guy. The problem is when you stop winning. A la today.

  21. Betsy June 18th, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    Brett is definitely going on the plane? Moronic…….just moronic. Even if he doesn’t technically have a concussion, give the poor kid some time to recuperate. Watch – they’ll play him tomorrow. I honestly do not get the Yankees. They used to be so conservative with injuries. Now? They are desparate – they feel like they need to win so badly that they will take certain risks they shouldn’t. Unbelievable…IF this is true.

    Regarding Pete’s post about Joba in the post-game – seriously, did he say he did a good job? That’s almost as big a problem as the game itself……

  22. Torro June 18th, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    This team hasn’t played good baseball since the Cleveland series.

    Starting with the home Texas series, it has been all down-hill from there. And it has gotten worse each series as well. This is just rock bottom.

    6-8 in our last 14, lost 6 of our last 9. We lost a series to the best team in baseball, and one to the worst team in baseball in a span of a week. We should have lost 2\3 to a depleted Mets team as well.

    How does a team this talented go through a slump like this where they play bad baseball for an extended period of time?

  23. Erica - newly OPPC June 18th, 2009 at 10:43 pm

    Umm- Pete said it was a mild concussion. Jeez

  24. King Brian June 18th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    What should Joba say? He didn’t pitch badly. 6 innings, 3 runs. It’s not his fault he got no run support. Not even a shutout would have been sufficient.

    Should be more than enough to win a game with this offense against the worst pitching staff in baseball.

  25. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    Tell you what, that dropped ball is still my favorite all time non WS Subway Series win.

    Tell you what, it’s baseball. Be thankful our team is even in contention. They are fun to watch, they have a knack for exciting comebacks, and they have a shot to make some hay in the playoffs. They are a very entertaining pastime.

  26. Bob(the original) June 18th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    Well, even if they start the game up again, at least Florida will get to Miami much later than the Yanks do.

  27. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    Sorry, too many “tell you whats”.

  28. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    6 innings 3 runs is not bad.

  29. Rishi June 18th, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    I think Pete said it sounds like a concussion to him, not that he is actually making a diagnosis

  30. Erica - newly OPPC June 18th, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    Joba didn’t pitch badly. Technically, 6 innings and 3 earned runs is considered a quality start by general baseball stats

  31. Homer June 18th, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    How can you ever trust this offense in a playoff series? You just never know when they are all going to turn cold at the same time. They do it at the most unpredictable times. They couldn’t hit Boston and can’t hit Washington.

    Have they not heard of picking up eachother?

  32. Yogi8 June 18th, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    It doesn’t matter how Joba did. You can’t win a baseball game without scoring any runs.

  33. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:48 pm

    Joba’s a first year starting pitcher, these are the starts you expect from him as he gets his training wheels off.

  34. K-Zone June 18th, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    We’re starting to see the other side of comebacks lately… more often than not, it will result in disappointment and dejection rather than euphoria.

    If you play all these close games when you are trailing late, you are going to lose more than you will win. Just the law of averages. We won a lot of these early, now it is just balancing out like the last 2 nights.

  35. Scorpio June 18th, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    No excuses, pathetic showing by the Yankees. Anyway you slice it, it hasn’t been pretty.

    Agree with Pete, call it like it is and stop all the double speak and cap tipping.

  36. Doris from Rego Park June 18th, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    June 18th, 2009 at 10:43 pm
    Doris from Rego Park ,

    The Yankees held out until Pettitte agreed to accept their $5.5mil offer. He recieved Brad Penny money, not CC Sabathia money. Pettitte was signed to be a 5th starter. He’s 6 -3 with a 4.52 ERA and there’s only 20 pitchers in AL with more innings pitched. Andy Pettitte is what he is.. a 5th starter. He’s paid as such and compares favorably to any other team’s 5th starter.
    _

    What will his final 2009 salary be if he makes 25 starts and has a 5+ ERA?

  37. m June 18th, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    Oh, you’re kidding me. I wrote something to Doreen and I referenced something to Betsy about being a male rooster-eyed optimist and it got stuck in the filter.

    Anyway, Doreen, shame on you! I remember you were really down on the team 2 years ago. Then Damon said they’d make the playoffs and they did.

    The pitching is much better than it was in the first 2 months. If we get that under control, that’s more than half the battle. The offense will figure itself out.

    Betsy, I’ll take you up on your optimist challenge.

  38. Lance June 18th, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    Angels are only 1 game back of us in the WC race now.
    Tampa is only 3 back.

    Continue to play like this, and we will be chasing the teams for the WC, not the other way around.

  39. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:53 pm

    Andy’s a fifth starter. What I expected and what we’re all getting.

  40. Steve B June 18th, 2009 at 10:53 pm

    “Joba didn’t pitch badly. Technically, 6 innings and 3 earned runs is considered a quality start by general baseball stats”

    Too many baserunners allowed and still lacking in economy. He was good enough to win, yet not all that good at the same time.

  41. Torro June 18th, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Yeah… tip your cap to the worst team in baseball history

    lol

    A gutless effort by the team. Their arrogance finally caught up to them.

  42. Erica - newly OPPC June 18th, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Good night everyone.

    Hope all the pessimists out there don’t give themselves nightmares

  43. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:55 pm

    Steve B-W/o the ridiculous pitch count (not blaming Joe, everybody does it), Joba can go seven or even if he has a quick seventh eight.

  44. Steve B June 18th, 2009 at 10:55 pm

    “What will his final 2009 salary be if he makes 25 starts and has a 5+ ERA?”

    His ERA has no direct impact on his ’09 salary. All incentives are based on starts/innings pitched.

  45. Drive 4-5 June 18th, 2009 at 10:55 pm

    Doris from Rego Park,

    If Pettitte wins 8 more games this season he’ll have earned the bonus. There’s bigger problems on this starting staff than Pettitte, namely Joba and Wang.

  46. GreenBeret7 June 18th, 2009 at 10:56 pm

    The Yankees can deal with the two runs they scored on hits…it’s the run scored because he walked the bottom three of the order, for the second time in three games that’s unacceptable. Sorry, but, no, he didn’t pitch well. NYY needs to sit him down and explain to him who catchers are and what they do. He can learn in NY or Scranton.

  47. Marcus June 18th, 2009 at 10:56 pm

    13-12 since the 9 game win streak ended. Have lost 6 of 9.

  48. Betsy June 18th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    M, I used that expression, too and my post also got stuck..lol, too bad, because I like that word.

  49. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    Drive 4-5, Joba is the least of our worries.

    Our pitching was fine, our offense was the issue and it’ll get hot again.

    A 3 ERA for three straight games is fine.

  50. D-Train June 18th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    Bring up Shelly Duncan

    He can add some spark to the team and punch to a lineup that is lacking it.

  51. m June 18th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    Is it over? Because they lost to the Gnats?

    Don’t even watch, because there will be far more embarrassing and costly losses.

    And the team will still be okay.

  52. Betsy June 18th, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    GB, Joba seems to get special treatment from the Yankees. It’s interesting that no matter how he performs, he seems to have a spot solidified in the rotation.

  53. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    m,

    Smart post. Short, to the point.

  54. m June 18th, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Betsy,

    Abso-freaking-lutely.

    And I’m tired of how fans here treat starters not named CC & Joba.

    If AJ did what CC did, which wasn’t all that bad, he’d have been tarred and feathered. Even though it wasn’t all that bad. They’d scream about how AJ’s getting paid to be the co-ace or something.

    Talk about male-rooster-eyed.

  55. GreenBeret7 June 18th, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    Betsy, right now, until Chamberlain gets his head out of that dark hole, he’d be pitching long relief in Scranton if it were up to me. Hughes has been more of the #1/2 starter, given his past few starts and how silly the hitters look with him coming out of the pen. I certainly wouldn’t reward Chamberlain with the cherished 8th inning slot.

    I blame the yankee publicity office, the fans and the media for puffing up his ego, but, I blame Chamberlain more. He’s not a kid any more. Right now, his attitude is too close to what Burnett’s is.

  56. Betsy June 18th, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    Yep, M……no question that’s true about AJ, but I’m not eager to start that conversation again. It was painful, reading the many criticisms of the guy both professional and personal. Joba, on the other hand, is the fair haired kid. Why shouldn’t he be treated just the same as Phil? I don’t even bother saying anything negative about Joba on this other board I post at because they seem to take great offense at it. Also, they blame the Yankees for everything, including Joba’s struggles (they changed his mechanics, etc……….)

  57. Wait till they come to OUR house June 18th, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    GreenBeret7, here’s the problem: We gave Joba the eighth inning spot and he just blew people away. So is Hughes. If you go by how they’ve started, Joba has clearly outperfromed Hughes. No comparison, Joba has thrown far more quality starts than Hughes has, and his ERA is lower.

    The issue w/Joba is one I hope can be fixed in NY.

  58. Betsy June 18th, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    GB, I agree……..Joba is the Nick Swisher of starting pitchers. I like him, he’s a good kid, but he’s not overly professional. He should take a cue from Phil, who’s handled his ups and downs amazingly well and should get credit for that. Damon had some unflattering “stuff” to say about Phil after the Baltimore game, but why is he silent when it comes to Joba? Do the players think he’s untouchable in that way? Joba has let the fame go to his head…Does he think he’s the first very talented pitcher to come down the pike? I like pitchers showing confidence enough to shake off a few pitches here and there, but all the time? Fighting with his catcher? He’s a stubborn boy…..

  59. GreenBeret7 June 18th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    Chamberlain’s attitude removes any reason for giving him anything. One thing, if the Yanks sent him to Scranton, it hurts the team. That would be just fine, His team mates would have the ammo to jump in his azs with all 48 feet. Perhaps that would wake him up and he’ll realize he’s only part of the team….not THE team. Players, like soldiers hate getting punished because of one jerk. The team mates will then deal with the issue.

  60. Rose June 18th, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    Joba is responsible for his own struggles. He has to learn to throw strikes. He walks too many batters and that leads to gift runs. Throw the ball over the plate. If they hit it, your defense has a chance to catch it.

  61. GreenBeret7 June 18th, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    Betsy, I don’t think the “hands off of Joba” treatment is going to last much more. He’s not deserving of it. It’s going to blow up and get ugly if the team isn’t careful. This could be handled by Girardi, but, seriously, this is better handled by the players….Same thing with Swisher and Burnett. these three guys need to, in the words of Hank Bauer, “Don’t screw with my money.”.

  62. Rishi June 18th, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    new post

  63. nj23nut June 19th, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    I was at the game last night at the stadium (and I will use the lower case “s”) for the first time last night. I stayed for the entire thing. My friends and I took the 3 hour drive down and decided to tough it out until they called the game. We had bleacher seats and ended up sitting 15 rows back behind the plate (contrary to what some places said, Legends seating was NOT part of that upgrade). Now I also get to go to another game for free. I think that is a pretty damn nice thing for the Yankees to do. I’ll probably never sit in those seats again, so I enjoyed the game even though they lost. Give credit where it’s due: the Nats pitchers stepped up and their defense made several great plays that helped save runs. Yes, they should have CRUSHED the Nats, but the Nats played some really good ball last night. Heck, they played really good ball for the whole series.

    I just wanted to thank the Yankees organization for rewarding the fans who decided to stick it out last night. After all the negative publicity they got at the beginning of the season, it was good to see they learned their lesson. Too bad the media (NY POST) is still lambasting them for even playing the game and not even mentioning that most of the fans that stayed enjoyed themselves despite the weather.

    As for the stadium, it’s beautiful and impressive, but it feels so sterile compared to the original Stadium. Seeing all that white, cold concrete out in the bleachers area and the metal grating around the first level on which the ads are attached to make it seem like the stadium is incomplete. Paint the darn walls in the bleachers blue and bring back the blue benches.

    I do have to say that the garlic fries are DAMN good, though. :D
