    I hate these chats. They never work on my computer.

    Haha first post.

    Just kidding! JUST KIDDING.

    You’re pushing your luck little man.

    Tony Pena had a calming effect to dugout according to some NY media sources. He’s getting some love for yesterday.

  4. bru June 25th, 2009 at 10:16 am

    nieve looks good for the mets.

    i was impressed last night.

    26 yrs old i believe.
    he made a grat pitch to pujols to make him pop up.

    wfan saying now that the yankees looked more relaxed with girardi off the bench,meeting with swish & the lineup gets changed.

    the yankees need to get it going & build on last night.

  5. betsy June 25th, 2009 at 10:16 am

    I just don’t get it…Evan Roberts (and I expect he’s not the only one) says he thinks the bench looked much more relaxed with Pena there instead of Girardi. What garbage – maybe the Yankees were relaxed because they actually got a few hits? It’s not Joe’s fault this group consistently underperforms – they did this with Joe Torre in his last few years as well. You can not force people to execute – if they can’t get the job done, it’s their fault (especially with talented players like these. It’s not like the Yankees have a lineup full of scrubs).

    I don’t believe that Joe has lost the clubhouse, but if he has, then as much as it says about Joe, it says that much about the players. They complained when he was too strict last year and now what, he’s too loose?

    That’s talk radio for you. They make dumb arguments to get the callers riled up.

  7. hardwired June 25th, 2009 at 10:18 am

    Here’s something that you don’t see everyday, a fan who is so happy w/his team’s announcer that he can’t stop raving about him:

    You can add laughs to the piece by replacing Jim Deshaies’ name w/Michael Kay’s.

  8. Hokiehill June 25th, 2009 at 10:19 am

    Brandon…is the NY media giving him love or trying to create a stir by making it Pena v Girardi?? It appears to be the latter and is garbage…Pena can have that same calming/positive impact with Girardi as the manager and I imagine in reality that’s the case. Gotta love the media for trying though.

  9. Hokiehill June 25th, 2009 at 10:20 am

    speaking of announcers, what was Sterlings call for Cervelli?

  10. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN June 25th, 2009 at 10:22 am

    Hello Betsy, glad you’re here. I wanted to continue our discussion from before. You left before my next post.

    Betsy-Who says you won’t (change my mind)? I’m surprisingly open minded. :-)

    Glad you like CC, but it seems odd to me that with these two comments CC’s is clearly “bad” and Tex’s is clearly “fine”. I don’t get it.

    I have nothing against you, I just don’t get it.

  11. Hokiehill June 25th, 2009 at 10:23 am

    some jellie for Cervelli? woah nellie look at Cervelli?

  12. Andrew June 25th, 2009 at 10:23 am

    This may be a question that has been answered ad nauseam, but how long is Nady expected to rehab in Scranton before getting activated? Is this a situation where they are waiting until his throwing is tested in a game situation before they deem him ready?

  13. JENNIFER June 25th, 2009 at 10:23 am

    The calming effect was Cisco hitting a homerun and looking like he was running on air and the hits that came after. Not Tony sitting on the bench. What a load.

  14. Giuseppe Franco June 25th, 2009 at 10:23 am

    The media was eating up the clubhouse chemistry stuff in May with the flying pies, championship belt, and everything else going on.

    But it’s funny how nobody talks about how great the chemistry is when a team isn’t playing well.

    It’s because winning = chemistry.

    The clubhouse is a lot more fun and calming when you’re winning as opposed to the last couple of weeks.

    The 20 day clock is probably running out. Don’t know when it started.

  16. Hokiehill June 25th, 2009 at 10:24 am

    Cervelli rang his bellie! Ok I’m done now.

  17. bru June 25th, 2009 at 10:24 am

    we have seen nice managers win & lose & we have seen dictator managers win & lose.

    i think for the most part managers can win or lose games with their decision making.

    i don’t think girardi lost this team but i do believe it can happen to managers but not very often.

    i think sometimes players just don’t respect some managers.
    i have no examples but life in general.

    like at work i am a manager & i have workers under me that if you do not get on them they will goof around a lot.

    they have to be held accountable.
    i noticed that when i get on them i get more out of them but i have to be carefull not to disrespect them.

  18. bru June 25th, 2009 at 10:30 am

    i heard that the yankees will have the infielders run out to the outfield to catch throws from nady to take the pressure off of him when throwing.

    don’t know if it will be all the infielders or just cano,maybe jeter.

  19. Brandon... "Farve 3, NFL FRUSTRATED RETIRE ALREADY FANS 0" June 25th, 2009 at 10:31 am

    I like Pena, and literally the only decision I saw good from him was getting Coke into the game for Joba and pulling Bruney for Mo w/ 4 outs remaining. I hate that talk radio doesn’t focus on that instead of trying to stir things up.

    The news today should be Joba’s good performance, Cisco & Al’s big hit and the Yankee BP being solid.

  20. bru June 25th, 2009 at 10:33 am

    that would be two decisions that can win or lose a game.

    who knows what girardi would do.

    you leave any of them in too long it might be a different game.

  21. Giuseppe Franco June 25th, 2009 at 10:35 am

    I would imagine Girardi told Pena what moves to make last night. They probably weren’t Pena’s decisions at all.

  22. Steve B June 25th, 2009 at 10:35 am

    “and the Yankee BP being solid.”

    Bruney sucked.

  23. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN June 25th, 2009 at 10:36 am

    Brandon-You realize Joe was right there calling the shots.

  24. 86w183 June 25th, 2009 at 10:36 am

    Girardi made all the decisions, either from the hallway or on the phone from the manager’s office.

  25. Steve B June 25th, 2009 at 10:36 am

    “I would imagine Girardi told Pena what moves to make last night. They probably weren’t Pena’s decisions at all.”

    Agreed.

  26. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN June 25th, 2009 at 10:36 am

    Our BP has been outstanding lately.

    Actually our pitching in general has been outstanding. We need offense.

  27. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN June 25th, 2009 at 10:40 am

    You realize what a weird game yesterday was?

    Getting perfect gamed through five innings (despite their starter getting knocked out w/a line drive by OUR starter).

    Having our first baserunner picked off but not really.

    Getting our manager ejected.

    Tying the game w/the backup catcher’s first HR.

    Having the coldest hitter in the league up w/the bases loaded and getting the big hit.

    Scoring five more runs so that we ended up w/more runs in four innings than in the past two games and five innings combined.

    Having Mo bat.

    Hope this game was a turning point!

  28. Brandon... "Farve 3, NFL FRUSTRATED RETIRE ALREADY FANS 0" June 25th, 2009 at 10:41 am

    ““and the Yankee BP being solid.”

    Bruney sucked.”

    That’s just rust, he hadn’t thrown a ball for like 5 days.

    “Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN
    June 25th, 2009 at 10:36 am
    Brandon-You realize Joe was right there calling the shots.”

    IDK that’s always the percieved thought. That’s a question Pete should ask when they interview Tony or GI Joe later.

  29. Coach6423 June 25th, 2009 at 10:42 am

    Pena went to the mound, he did not make the decision.

  30. Hokiehill June 25th, 2009 at 10:42 am

    “i heard that the yankees will have the infielders run out to the outfield to catch throws from nady to take the pressure off of him when throwing.”

    You mean like a cut-off man? I heard a rumor that all major league teams will be doing this as well.

  31. Hokiehill June 25th, 2009 at 10:43 am

    I agree it was a crazy game…very entertaining as well. Glad it was on TV down my way.

  32. Steve B June 25th, 2009 at 10:45 am

    “That’s just rust, he hadn’t thrown a ball for like 5 days.”

    Might be. Just not timely is all I’m sayin’.

  33. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN June 25th, 2009 at 10:46 am

    Hokiehill, it WAS entertaining…but bizarre.

  34. Andrew June 25th, 2009 at 10:47 am

    Maybe bru is alluding to the infielders extending their cutoffs, meaning going further out into right on certain plays to cut down on the stress Nady has to put his elbow under on basic throws back to the infield. This won’t work, however, when he absolutely has to make a throw to a base or to the plate–these will be the real tests of how healthy he is.

    Honestly the guy won’t be playing in right every day, but having his bat back and finding the right rotations for him between RF and DH should hopefully help some offensively. And yes I know he is statistically inferior to Swisher due to his comparative lack of patience and power, but he has a rep for being a professional hitter and might improve the team’s success in RISP or situational hitting scenarios.

  35. Brandon... "Farve 3, NFL FRUSTRATED RETIRE ALREADY FANS 0" June 25th, 2009 at 10:49 am

    “Pena went to the mound, he did not make the decision.”

    I’d rather hear it from someone that knows 100 %, again percieved thought is mgr. gets kicked out he calls it from the locker room, I want to know if this really happened or if Tony P. actually managed.

  36. SJ44 June 25th, 2009 at 10:56 am

    Brandon,

    Girardi managed the game from the runway, not Tony Pena.

    Bobby Cox has gotten thrown out of more games than any manager in history and that’s how he does it.

    There was no magic Tony Pena elixir last night. Every move in that game came from Girardi. As it always does when a manager gets tossed.

  37. Steve B June 25th, 2009 at 10:59 am

    “I’d rather hear it from someone that knows 100 %, again percieved thought is mgr. gets kicked out he calls it from the locker room, I want to know if this really happened or if Tony P. actually managed.”

    If it helps, managers keep managing in that situation about 99% of the time. Doesn’t really matter anyway, as nothing especially extraordinary was done. Not a manager alive that doesn’t go to Mo with 2 outs in the 8th after several days off and the set up man struggling.

  38. Coach6423 June 25th, 2009 at 10:59 am

    The ESPN announcers made a comment that they made Cox an office right outside the dugout, because he gets tossed so much…hahaha

  39. pat June 25th, 2009 at 11:10 am

    “is the NY media giving him love or trying to create a stir?”

    A stir. That was the reason I said Tex’s remark last night made me cringe a little. He said nothing wrong but the perception would be something is wrong.

  40. Reggie Miller June 25th, 2009 at 11:17 am

    All I know is this blog is much more attractive without having to listen to Trisha with her always rosy outlook and not seeing through the smoke and mirrors. Sometimes it’s good to talk about the “bad” things about a team.

  41. Angel Berroa June 25th, 2009 at 11:48 am

    Go away Reggie, the Knicks fan in me hates your name.
