    Happy I’m not there because knowing me I would stand there with tears streaming down my face and now be able to say a word, and they of course would be weirded out by me.

    I want to see pictures! Pictures or it didn’t happen!

  3. Carl August 10th, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    I miss Wang so much, but man the turnover on this rotation is just nasty even without him. After Mitre, we have Joba and AJ pitching again.

  4. SJ44 August 10th, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    We should have a contest today. Let’s pick the poster who will complain first about the team, Girardi or any player if the Yankees fall behind or GASP, lose this game.

    I’d say the over/under that the “Red Sox series means nothing” posts will be 100 if the Yankees have the “nerve” to lose or fall behind tonight.

    Francessa should be fun today.

    It’s fun being a Yankee fan:

    “I miss Wang so much….”

    I miss him as well and I’m sad that he can’t be enjoying the fun that the team is obviously having.

  8. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    betsy,

    I, too, was irritated about that Saturday appearance. But like SJ or CB said, Girardi wanted to win the season.

  9. GreenBeret7 August 10th, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    I’d like to see Jason Hirsh get a couple more starts at Scranton and if all goes well, give him a couple of starts in NYY. Gaudin may be well suited to be the second lefty out of the pen. He’s got a very good fastball. He certainly has to be better than Marte, or, at least, more dependable.

  10. jennifer August 10th, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    I am listening to wfan, and I cannot get over the number of people calling up and complaining that Joe didn’t use Hughes last night. I guess the fact that he pitched in 4 out of 5 games is lost on them. Also lost is the fact that we swept the soxs and are now up 6 1/2 games!

    I really don’t understand the constant complaining of Joe. The Yankees have the best record in MLB, have the largest lead in MLB. I mean are the Yankees winning in spite of Joe? Listening to the radio you’d think so.

    Who were Melky and Cano dancing with in the digout during the game last night? Hairston???

    It was hilarious. Kind of reminded me of Perfect Strangers when Larry and Balky used to do the “Dance of Joy” LOL

  13. jennifer August 10th, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    SJ-

    If the Yankees go down 2-0 in the second inning the chicken littles will be here complaining that the game is over and we can’t over come such a huge lead, oh and Mitre must be taken out of the game for Hughes. He must pitch 5 innings!

  14. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:10 pm

    Wow SJ, that’s actually a tough one. There are so many from which to choose. I admit that I try not to pay too close attention to the complaining when I am on the game thread because it really does bum me out – so I may be missing some of the prime suspects. I know Matt is right there but I think he doesn’t come around until we’re losing.

    How about Jeremy? He somehow sticks out to me as an immediate knee jerker.

  15. David August 10th, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    Lets see what Francesa complains about today..maybe the fact that we paid for Tex, CC and AJ and they came through for us?

  16. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    Groan. Fran just said there’s no way the Sox catch the Yankees.

    I think Captains Corner also may deserve a vote. I’d be interested in hearing from others who are here a lot more and actually have the fortitude to read all the negative game thread posts.

  19. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    How about RDM?

  20. SJ44 August 10th, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    In the 8th on Saturday, he has 2 lefties he wanted CC to get and once his pitch count hit 123, it was Hughes’ time to get Green. Its just the way it played out.

    You try and win the series in that situation and if Hughes is only used for one batter, so be it.

    Just means he’s unavailable for Sunday and that shouldn’t be a big deal. Its called proper bullpen management.

    That’s how you keep guys fresh throughout the entire season instead of burning out.

  21. raymagnetic August 10th, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    “Groan. Fran just said there’s no way the Sox catch the Yankees.”

    He’s right. Just like there’s no way the Rays are catching the Yankees either.

    The Sox aren’t playing 8 games better than the Yankees from now until the end of the season.

  22. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    YKW/RDM. I don’t know if “they” count.

  23. Jim M August 10th, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    I thought I just heard Francessa slipp and say “we won’t be catching them”, referring to the sox catching the Yankees….

  24. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Montero Fanaticus Primus August 10th, 2009 at 1:13 pm

    Does Francesca have a cold or something? He sounds awful.

  25. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:13 pm

    “He’s right. Just like there’s no way the Rays are catching the Yankees either.

    Bingo!

  26. Ham Fighters August 10th, 2009 at 1:13 pm

    hey, i LOVE joe torre. i’ve been a huge fans going back to his playing days. the way it ended with the yankees, the book, none of that will ever dampen my love for joe T.

    but facts are facts, joes weakness is his use overreliance
    of the ‘hot hand’ in the bullpen and the burnout it creates.

    as much as i love torre, it was time to go, it was just an unfortunate ending.

    i think they did an outstanding job in picking girardi. he is prepared and focused and the team is too. he’s not as smooth at handling the n.y. press, but he is pretty good at it and getting better and better.

    when i come up with a lineup or think about a pitching change and joe plays it differently, i dont even question it much anymore, because i cant argue with how well he’s developed this bullpen and with this offense it seems not to matter. also, i marvel at what girardi is coaxing from a declining matsui and dealing with damon’s limitations. nobody’s talking about damon’s defense falling off a cliff or matsui’s knees because girardi has a great feel for when to rest and when to use the two of them. and then there’s the catching ‘controversy’. there is none. even with pitchers and jogre sometimes locked in mutual discord, joe keeps posada’s stick and molina’s glove and arm working at maximum efficiency.

    this is a great team that would be winning with either joe at the helm, which is to say that we may have found a manager who has the tools to be as successful as joe t was for us. and that is impressive.

  27. Trevor August 10th, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    Francesa for the first time in eons, sounds like a Yankee fan.

  28. Aura August 10th, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    watch the replay of Damon’s home run and noticed that Jorge greeted him rather coldly when he hit the dugout. Any bad blood between the too? After Tex’s HR Posada gave him a smile and a high five.

  29. Laura - I like the new and improved Alex! He's a keeper. August 10th, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    I was whinning about Girardi not using Hughes as well. However, I did not realize that Hughes had pitched so many days last week. I stopped complaining once that was told to me. I’m sure the people who are still complaining would shut it if they knew the facts as well.

  30. jennifer August 10th, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    Oh and when Joe sits Alex (possibly tonight) We’ll here complaining about how can you sit Alex, he’s hot now.

    Another thing, who was the person saying the Yankees should sit everyone last night and concede the game? I guess they are eating up a nice serving of crow.

  31. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    Hey, guys. Not cool talking about people behind their backs. RDM & Guess Who are the exceptions, though. :)

    ray,

    I can appreciate an argumentative “fan” like Francessa jumping on the bandwagon because then you know it’s for real. But I’m superstitious.

    Rob Neyer said they’re a shoe-in, I wasn’t so offended when he said it, though. :)

  32. Laura - I like the new and improved Alex! He's a keeper. August 10th, 2009 at 1:18 pm

    “watch the replay of Damon’s home run and noticed that Jorge greeted him rather coldly when he hit the dugout. Any bad blood between the too? After Tex’s HR Posada gave him a smile and a high five.”

    Posada seems to be a bit of a cold fish sometimes. He’s not that friendly to Swisher either. I don’t think he likes the guys that like to have fun.

  33. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:18 pm

    Ham Fighters -

    Awesome post.

    “i think they did an outstanding job in picking girardi. he is prepared and focused and the team is too. he’s not as smooth at handling the n.y. press, but he is pretty good at it and getting better and better.

    And this makes you one of the smarter baseball fans around here. Nothing is more refreshing than someone who realizes he or she doesn’t actually know more than the team’s manager.

    Great job Ham.

  34. SJ44 August 10th, 2009 at 1:18 pm

    To me, there are times when you can legitimately complain about something.

    However, 500 posts last night about “WHY ISN’T HUGHES IN THERE”??, when it was CLEAR he was unavailable is not a, “Girardi has no idea what he is doing”. Its more like, “he’s managing the pen without 2-3 guys available”.

    You look at this team and its NOTHING like the last 5-6 Yankee teams.

    Clutch hitting, great defense, solid pitching, fun group of guys, this team is a FUN team to watch. How can anybody complain about that?

    I think CB nailed it last night when he said too many Yankee fans have glass jaws. They talk tough but, can’t take a punch. They are Pre-2004 Red Sox fans in the way they act.

    You know what my first reaction was when Martinez homered?

    It was, “well, they were bound to score at some point. Keep it at 2-1 and they will find a way to win and rip their hearts out”.

    I haven’t felt that way about a Yankee team in years.

    These guys are a special group. Still have a LONG way to go but, something special is happening here.

    Folks should sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Maybe its from sniffling and crying last night

  36. jennifer August 10th, 2009 at 1:19 pm

    Laura- Many of the people who were complaining didn’t want to hear that Hughes pitched so much over the last week. All the kept pointing to was his low pitch count the previous two appearances. Someone called me an idiot, cause they said he threw only 10 pitches, but never mind all the warm ups and the previous 2 times out.

  37. Patrick August 10th, 2009 at 1:19 pm

    I hear what you guys are saying, I still disagree with not using Hughes last night. I’m glad it worked out in our favor so I’m not going to complain about it but I still think it was the wrong move.

  38. CB August 10th, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    Repost:

    “It was also wise not to turn Martinez around and have him hit against a righty in the short porch.”

    Completely agree. I can’t imagine people wanting to let Martinez hit from the left side.

    I don’t know if people caught this but a pretty good switch hitter – Mark Teixeira – said something interesting after last nights game.

    Tex described Left field/ left center in the new yankee stadium as a “grave yard” for hitting home runs.

    Martinez crushed a pitch – but the liklihood of him hitting a homerun to left field was much lower than it was to right field.

    Much lower.

  39. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    Does Suzyn sniff a lot during broadcasts? It’s the first time I heard it and it was distracting. Take a Sudafed please!

  40. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    Nah, I complained.

    I made my arguements. Now I’m done.

  41. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    Patrick, we think alike.

  42. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    Wait,

    ;)

    Patrick will take over now.

  43. jennifer August 10th, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    I have a question for those who watched post game last night.

    When Joe was talking, all of a sudden he got quite and mumbled something, sounded like he said he can’t do this or something like that. Anyone know what it was about. I watched it 3 times and couldn’t figure it out.

    Maybe he was getting emotional over the sweep? I don’t know.

  44. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    “I’m sure the people who are still complaining would shut it if they knew the facts as well.”

    Laura I would give an entire day of joy if people for once would shut it BEFORE they know the facts, try to find them out, and then complain if they feel the need. In other words, make the assumption for one day that the manager actually knows what he’s doing and there may be a good reason for any particular move.

    It gets so old to hear the blitching around here when people don’t have the facts.

  45. JasonR August 10th, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    “You know what my first reaction was when Martinez homered?

    It was, “well, they were bound to score at some point. Keep it at 2-1 and they will find a way to win and rip their hearts out”.”

    I had a similar reaction. The first thought that went through my head after the Martinz homer was “Man, how great would it be if we won it against Papelbon?”

    This team isn’t and won’t be as good, but it does feel a little bit like 1998. No deficit feels impossible, no matter how many innings or outs are left.

  46. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    jennifer – it’s about his braces. He said he has trouble talking with them.

  47. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    I’d rather Martinez switch sides because Hughes is better than Coke.

    Forget wrrying about the short porch. Coke has struggled lately and is HR prone. Hughes has been lights out and is a better pitcher.

    I wanted to end the debate, but it’s been revived against my will.

  48. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:23 pm

    Hey did you just hear the sports flash? Yankees have never blown a division lead of more than 6 games.

    If this is old news, I apologize.

  49. jennifer August 10th, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    Bernie Williams alert. Is is currently signing autographs in the new jcp in nyc.

    My co-worker just came back from lunch and handed me a signed picture. (the one he got was a repo) They were handing out repos, and if you wanted to wait you could get his auto. said the line was really long.

  50. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    Yeah, when Martinex hit the HR, oddly my first thought wasn’t “crap”. It was I hope we get to Papelscum. Tht would really put the icing on the cake”.

  51. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:25 pm

    I just bought an autograph from Bucky Dent for 25 dollars.

    For most people it doesn’t matter to have Bucky Dent’s autograph but to Yankee fans it is COOL.

  52. Evan D. August 10th, 2009 at 1:25 pm

    As much as I like Francesa (when many of you don’t), I’ve turned to listen to WEEI radio from Boston.

    Nice to hear the complaints from them about their team for a change. And rightfully so. I cannot see Boston get around their pitching woes now. It would take a Mets-like collapse from the Yanks for Boston to come back in the division.

    I was also one of the people who did not like the Coke/Hughes situation last night but I believe now that it came from Cashman and Girardi was simply told he could not use Hughes for a 5th time in 6 days.

  53. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:26 pm

    I thought, “Well, they were bound to score.”

    Next thought (with not much conviction), “We still have 2 innings to tie it up”

  54. David August 10th, 2009 at 1:26 pm

    Coke has been very effective vs. righties this year and pitching to V-mart wasn’t a bad idea, but Coke made a mistake and V-mart made him pay. It happens, Girardi was trying to protect Hughes and I completely respect that. We have the best record in baseball and it’s very wrong to criticize Girardi.

    Just be glad Girardi isn’t doing to Hughes what Torre did to Proctor.

  55. SJ44 August 10th, 2009 at 1:26 pm

    And if he used Hughes, for the first time all year three days in a row, and 5 of the last 6 games, and Martinez homered, folks would say, “Girardi is killing Hughes and overusing him too much”.

    Its the thinking behind the move. Not just the result. You make a move, you don’t control the result.

    Hughes has not pitched 3 times in a row since he has been moved to the bullpen. Its clear he’s not going to pitch 3 times in a row, regardless of the opponent, for the rest of the regular season.

    Its not going to happen so complaining about it is a waste of time.

  56. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    Yeah I didn’t EXPECT to win the game. But I wasn’t worried either.

    The Stadium just lost it. It sounded exctly like the old house.

    I’m happy to report I don’t have to change my blog name!

  57. jennifer August 10th, 2009 at 1:28 pm

    trisha

    I didn’t realize he wore braces. I guess they are new?

    Oh and just looked at back of picture, said he was there from 11-1. I’d get there quick and try to sneak on line.

    I can’t believe no one in my office told me about it. surly someone heard! GRRR

  58. Ham Fighters August 10th, 2009 at 1:28 pm

    BUCKY!

  59. BD 2.0 August 10th, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    I, for one, am having an absolute blast watching this team play.

    Even when things were down, they were still in the wildcard lead or hunt.

    It’s amazing that some people cannot appreciate the progress that this team has made since April.

    So far, it’s been a special season.

    Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

  60. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    I would NOT hace trashed Girardi. Absolutely not. I would not have blamed Girardi at all if Hughes had blown the lead. He’s the better pitcher.

  61. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    “To me, there are times when you can legitimately complain about something.”

    I guess the question is: what is a legitimate complaint? I say this only because for every post where someone vehemently questions a move, there is another saying it was the right move.

    But that said, I can’t disagree with you because I remember being almost inconsolable when Torre let Joba pitch in midgeville. Also when he sat Melky in 2006 and put Sheffield in the lineup in the postseason.

    Maybe it’s a question of degree of complaining. And frequency. If someone doesn’t typically complain and then questions something – and moves on, I know I am much more prone to consider that as a potential legitimate question than I do from the posters who question every single hit and pitch, and bitterly so!

  62. raymagnetic August 10th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    Mel,

    Now I understand where you’re coming from. Francessa is like a lot of people who post here however.

    The the team is looking crummy he is not afraid to let his opinion be known about it.

    Now he’s finally seeing just how good this Yankee team really is.

  63. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    hace should be have.

  64. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    Olney has a chat going on. He actually had the Yankees missing the playoffs in the preseason predictions.

  65. Yogis August 10th, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    What a weekend! This is a special team alright and the pen worked wonders! There will be rough patch down the road (as I am still concerned about the SP depth/health), but that’s baseball (with a long season). Let fair weatherers fret and we shall stick with the team (and the manager) through thick and thin. So very proud of them (for what they have done to the “nation”). Go Bombers!

  66. BD 2.0 August 10th, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    If people want to contend that someone besides Coke should have pitched, that seems ok to me.

    But I agree with SJ44, Hughes had pitched in 4 of the previous 5 games. 5 out of 6 seems like borderline abuse for a young, promising, arm like Phil Hughes.

    You want your top young pitchers abused??

    Go root for whatever team Dusty Baker is managing… not the Yankees.

  67. Bill August 10th, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    I’ve been a NYY fan over 50 years and whenever they fall behind I think of the 1978 comeback and as cliche as it may be, Yogi’s “It ain’t over ’till it’s over.” statement. Because when it comes to the NYY it really is true, this year more so than in many years!

  68. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:32 pm

    Olney would go Pettitte-3/Joba 4 in the playoffs.

  69. SJ44 August 10th, 2009 at 1:32 pm

    Lack of effort from players. That’s a legitimate source of complaint.

    Hitting Arod 8th in the biggest game of the year to embarrass him and try to make yourself look good. That’s a legitimate source of complaint.

    Not taking on a challenge head on and blaming others for your own futility. That’s a legitimate source of complaint.

    Those are some legtimate sources of complaints. There are more but, you get my drift.

    Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!”

    BD, if only. I wish I had a magic cyberpotion to shoot into the veins of every poster who has the inability to do what you just said. How can you fault the Yankees when they lose? They’re human! (Even worse, some of these people fault them even when they win!!!)

  71. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:33 pm

    Everyone giving Olney grief on Tex over Mauer for MVP.

    I can see their points, but Tex is da man. And playing relevant baseball. :)

    “I hear what you guys are saying, I still disagree with not using Hughes last night. I’m glad it worked out in our favor so I’m not going to complain about it but I still think it was the wrong move.”

    Which part of “pitched 4 of the past 5 days” don’t you understand?

    He’s been a reliever for 2 months. 2 Months. TWO MONTHS!

    He’s arm is extremely valuable to the organization. Why risk running him out there when the game isn’t do or die?

    Mauer over Tex for MVP.

    Sorry, but Mauer’s season is just too good. Tex is great. Mauer’s beyond.

  74. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and proud co-adopter of the Washington Nats August 10th, 2009 at 1:34 pm

    “Lack of effort from players. That’s a legitimate source of complaint.

    Hitting Arod 8th in the biggest game of the year to embarrass him and try to make yourself look good. That’s a legitimate source of complaint.

    Not taking on a challenge head on and blaming others for your own futility. That’s a legitimate source of complaint.

    Those are some legtimate sources of complaints. There are more but, you get my drift.”

    ABSOLUTELY UNEQUIVOCALY AGREE. I wasn’t thinking of those absolutely objective ones. Thanks SJ. I’m am entirely with you on this.

  75. Wait till they come to OUR house AGAIN August 10th, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    Wasn’t sure what, if anything, came of that.

  79. betsy August 10th, 2009 at 1:36 pm

    Lol at Francesca backtracking and never saying he said anything about Phil Hughes in the pen. I remember clearly that he said it was a terrible idea…..but, no, of course – he never said that. Right…lol

    If anyone goes to that meet and greet thing at the stadium, I would LOVE to hear about it….wish I could be there.

    As to the schedule, yes – the Yanks definitely have a tougher schedule. However, they’ve always been a good road team. Joe will just have to be good about getting players rest when they need it.

    I admit it’s taking everything I have to not question intelligence at this point. I will kindly say that at this point I think it has to be a matter of stubbornness on the parts of anyone who is still faulting Girardi.

It just amazes me how resilient this team is – how many comebacks they’ve made, even in games where they couldn’t finish the job. These guys are such good guys – really wonderful people and great teammates. I guess there’s nothing in the world like being on a team, where you are like a family and feel like you can accomplish great things together. That’s why I see in the Yankees…..

    Because I screwed up. For whatever reason, I was looking at him as a lefty. I haven’t really followed him over his career. My error. I’d still rather see him in the pen and bring Hirsh in and see what he does.

    “Like all of you, I was initially shocked and appalled at Phil “Home Run” Coke pitching to right-handed batters in the eighth inning, and doubly appalled when premonitions of doom proved to be highly accurate. I’m not going to criticize the manager for that call, not with too much conviction, anyway. For obvious reasons, Joe Girardi had not let the world know that the bullpen was mostly off-limits. I will say that if Girardi really has an ironclad aversion to using pitchers in three consecutive games (a quick look at the record shows that Joe Borowski pitched in four straight games in August 2006 and pitched in three straight games on one other occasion that year; Matt Herges also did so once. Jose Veras appeared in three straight games without an off-day twice last August, and Damaso Marte pitched in four straight games during the same period) then his usage of Hughes for one out in each of the previous two games was shortsighted.”

  90. CB August 10th, 2009 at 1:41 pm

    “He actually had the Yankees missing the playoffs in the preseason predictions.”

    He wasn’t alone.

    One of the remarkable things about preseason predictions was’t only the way the “main stream media” continued their love affair with the Sox.

    It was the way so many “sabermatricians” did as well.

    Coming into this season, models suggested that the yankees would not only have better pitching than the Sox – they would have significantly better pitching than the sox. Much better.

    Yest one sabermatrician after another amazingly ignored this and continued to trumpet the line that the Sox just had much better pitching than the yankees and would win the division.

    Beyond the Box Score is a good stats site. I remember looking at their preseason predictions and I just couldn’t believe it. One after another – all Sox all of the time.

    Same thing with Baseball Prospectus.

    Too many stats guys fell in love with Theo, seeing him almost as the coming to frutition of Billy Beane’s promise. Theo was Beane only given the money and resources needed to make things happen.

    “I thought, “Well, they were bound to score.”

    Next thought (with not much conviction), “We still have 2 innings to tie it up””

    Mel, I will be totally honest. When the Sux scored, I wasn’t thinking necessarily that the Yankees would come back and win it. I probably thought that it was the game at that point. But I think the difference is that even if it was the game, I wouldn’t have been profoundly upset or I wouldn’t have come undone because I expect that there will be losses. Last night could have been one.

    I hope you realize that doesn’t mean for a nanosecond that I don’t have faith in the Yankees or their ability to come back. It just wouldn’t have surprised me if the Sux took that game.

    Betsy, well said. Even better is how ARod has changed his whole perspective on things since his hip injury and how he feels so comfortable in that clubhouse now. Before ARod was so concerned with doing something special, but now is only concerned with winning and the team. Things are really clicking for this team on all cylinders and brings back some great memories from the 90′s.

  95. betsy August 10th, 2009 at 1:43 pm

    I’d like to say it’s amazing how well our new signings have handled the transition to NY (Evan Roberts specifically mentioned Tex because he was talking him up for MVP). It’s true – look at all the big names that have come here and needed a year to feel comfortable. I’m not sure if it’s just their individual personalities or whether it is just the right time and right place for all of them. Tex has been traded too many times for a player of his caliber….maybe he feels at home because he knows he’ll be here for a long time. Maybe AJ needed the big stage for his talents……..and CC? CC seems to be at home no matter where he plays – he embraces everyone. All I know is it’s just a wonderful thing knowing these guys are not just terrific players but terrific people. I just love this team………..and, of course, not just the new guys. They are all having so much fun……I can’t get Jorge’s laughter while AJ was pieing Alex out of my mind. This is a guy that fans keep saying is a stick in the mud and a sourpuss? What about Jeter…….everyone assumed that he wouldn’t take kindly to a pie, but if he got one, he’d be the first to laugh it off. How about Mo? Egging AJ on that day against the Phillies after he got bombed, encouraging him to pie (Damon, Melky? I forget) the hero? Or the Kangaroo court? I feel like for the first time we are getting to really know our dynasty guys……and it’s a lot of fun. This has been such a special season so far……….

    Do you realize there’s a difference between Joe Boroski, Jose Veras, and Matt Herges?

    All of those guys are relievers and have been relievers. None of those guys have the talent of Phil Hughes.

    Mel, I think we talked about that at the time and agreed that we didn’t give a rat about who predicted what. So I think this is a good time for me to trot out our prediction chart! I think it’s easy to see who here thought we would be in the playoffs – I think – from the numbers of wins predicted.

    Anyway, I guess I’ll go to Home Depot and look at paint colors. If anyone wants to be added to the chart with an asterisk for late choosing, feel free to email me at yankeetrisha@cox.net. I will look here also but even though you think you read all the posts sometimes it’s easy to miss some!

  103. Yogis August 10th, 2009 at 1:45 pm

    Agree with SJ completely! I would not have voiced these complaints vehemently during the season (out of reverence to the team as well as giving the manager benefit of the doubt). I was not sorry to see him leave (a better way of parting would be preferred) since it was a change over due, even the replacement may not necessary always worked out (in this case it worked out well, even for last season). However, his book as a parting shot to the organization does not sit well with me. For all he has done for the championships and efforts, I would forgive the sin.

  104. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:45 pm

    Wait,

    That last part is absolutely correct. But everyone said on Saturday, “He was only used for one batter, he’ll be available tomorrow.”

    We called it on Saturday. So, my beef was not in not using Phil on Sunday, but using him on Saturday.

    But, anyway, it’s all good. Sometimes moves work, sometimes they don’t.

    Girardi’s doing a better job than his counterparts, and that’s all that really matters.

    “Sorry, but Mauer’s season is just too good. Tex is great. Mauer’s beyond.”

    What?

    They are both having almost the same season at the plate. Same thing for Miguel Cabrera.

    And Tex is a much better defensive player.

    So if the yankees win the division and Minnesota doesn’t I can’t see Morneau winning.

    And as it stands – morneau is not even the most valuable player on his team.

    Joe Maeur is the guy who is the guy who has been the best player in the AL this year.

  110. stuart a August 10th, 2009 at 1:48 pm

    the thing that gives me a lot of hope about this team and reminds me of the late 90′s dynasty is that they may not hit well against aces but they get them out in 7 innings or less…they did not wallop beckett or lester or even halladay but they did the pitch count routine…they use to do that with pedro all the time.

    if mitre looks bad tonight he may be looking for a new job real soon.

    they need 6 innings and 3 runs or less…

    can anyone at the game last night tell us how the atmosphere was and the loudness of he crowd……

    ============

    4 game series might be tough to win…

    but the Yanks do miss King Felix (amazingly)

    They could and should win 3 of 4 because of that.

  117. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    Trisha,

    Exactly! I thought, even if we lose this one, we gained 2 games. Woo Hoo! And I’ve already told the story how I missed the tying HR because of technical issues. But it was much more enjoyable that way.

    CB,

    How could anyone put two AL teams ahead of a team led by: CC/AJ/Wang/Joba/Pettitte? How? Common sense alone would stop you.

  118. BD 2.0 August 10th, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    trisha,

    for the record, I used a “$1″ Price is Right strategy on my pick :)

    Unless Mitre does a complete turnabout tonight, I’d expect to see Chad Gaudin as the 1st used out of the pen as an audition for the No. 5 starter and / or take innings off Joba coming soon to start limiting his innings.

  121. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:53 pm

    Why was Jorge mad? Sterling & Suzyn said that Alex would’ve been out easily if he tried to score.

  122. Rose August 10th, 2009 at 1:54 pm

    Why is there still a debate about using Hughes? Girardi said he was unavailable and explained why.

    —————————————————————

    One thing I like about this team is they stay focused. One game at a time. And you never feel they are out of a game.

  123. YankeeRay August 10th, 2009 at 1:54 pm

    Last caller and Morgan are idiots. There is no way Arod scores on Posadas dbl in the bth pre or psthip surgery. It was hit hard and bounced right back to drew, it didn’t rattle around the corner. Arod ran well and he knew he wasn’t scoring on that play.

  124. NYY626 August 10th, 2009 at 1:54 pm

    Posada seems to be a bit of a cold fish sometimes. He’s not that friendly to Swisher either. I don’t think he likes the guys that like to have fun.
    ____________________________________________________________
    This is completely false. Watch the replay of Alex’s homerun on friday ( aka saturday morning). Jorge was right next to AJ hysterically laughing during the pie-ing (and I know this because I’ve seen the replay at least 7 times:) ). The whole “grumpy old guard” complaints are pretty silly at this point.

  127. MaineYankee August 10th, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    What a phony Francessa is. He is totally changing direction on his view of the RS. Before this series he was saying they were the model franchise and the Yankees were behind them. Now he is talking the opposite.

  129. m August 10th, 2009 at 1:56 pm

    trisha,

    Ah, but is it karma if finding out about it after all the technical troubles made it even sweeter?

  130. Joba and Hughes swap August 10th, 2009 at 1:57 pm

    SJ, I have to agree 100% about hitting arod 8th in that last game against tigers. I remember seeing that blurb on the espn bottom line day of the game and thinking, they’re done, no way they win that game, season is over (if i was thinking that, what about the players??). I loved joe t. but his time was due here, the arod move, as bad as he was playing, basically told the team that their best player was lost and his manager had zero confidence. You either bench him or leave him alone there. To me the midges incident was the last straw, how do you let your team continue playing like that? Joba walked maybe 2 batters all year before that game.

  131. MG August 10th, 2009 at 1:58 pm

    Girardi can’t manage, Cashman must go, and Yankee Stadium is launching pad. The Yankees buy championships, anyone can win with a $200M payroll, Arod isn’t clutch, Joba gets too excited, CC isn’t an ace, and Aceves isn’t even a deuce.

    Do I win that prize that was mentioned before? :)

    as for next year’s rotation, why wouldn’t Andy and the Yankees both want him back if the season ends on a positive note?

    His stuff the last 5 starts has been off the charts and those last two innings last night, after throwing over 90 pitches, were as good as anyone in baseball could be at that point in the game. He threw a couple of cutters that reminded me of Ron Guidry and Steve Carlton.

  141. MaineYankee August 10th, 2009 at 2:03 pm

    One thing that came to me during the game last night was even though YS is their home park it is new to them also. It seemed like the fans and the players embraced it as home during this series. It stared to have the feel and sound of the old stadium.

    I did some analysis for the AL MVP just based on the stats for the season and the listing had nothing to do with how well the player’s team is doing this year and I came up with this listing based upon runs created, batting average, OPS and RBI’s:

    RANK PLAYER
    1 Joe Mauer
    2 Justin Morneau
    3 Kevin Youkilis
    4 Mark Teixeira
    5 Ben Zobrist
    6 Bobby Abreu
    7 Miguel Cabrera
    8 Adam Lind
    9 Jason Bartlett
    10 Jason Bay
    11 Johnny Damon
    12 Jason Kubel
    13 Jim Thome
    14 Alex Rodriguez
    15 Kendry Morales
    16 Shin-Soo Choo
    17 Michael Young
    18 Evan Longoria
    19 Victor Martinez
    20 Juan Rivera

    Having gone to the games on Thursday & last night, I would say that The New Yankee Stadium does NOT have the same feel as the old place, and probably never will.

    When the crowd went crazy in the old place, the building would shake. The new place is build rock solid.

    I kinda miss that holy cr@p, this place is going to collapse feeling.

  153. MG August 10th, 2009 at 2:09 pm

    Joe Monte, I’m sure you used good stats on which to base the analysis, but for Mauer and Morneau to be #1 and #2 when their team is 3 games below .500 and 8 1/2 games behind just for the Wild Card either means the rest of the team must be refugees from the local Beer League or that the stats mean nothing regarding the actual winning of games.

    This year’s MVP, if the Yankees keep winning, has to be a Yankee and Teix is the obvious choice with Jeter a close second.

  154. haiku-man August 10th, 2009 at 2:10 pm

    Posada is serious minded,the heart of the Yankees,not a cold fish.

    Now that the Yankees are at the top,many teams(even the ones out of the pennant race)will be gunning for them,as spoilers.

    It was great seeing the team support Joba.He gave up the most runs of all the pitchers,yet won by the largest margin.

    should i sweep in front of his store 6 1/2 times after i sweep in front of mine or would that be poor sportsmanship? :)

    MG, like I said, the analysis doesn’t incorporate the teams w-l record and doesn’t emphasize if the team is in position to the make the playoffs. If you look at Mauer’s and Morneau’s numbers and it’s hard to argue against them being in the top 5 for MVP.

    With all of the sideshow things involving Rodriguez, he’s having a really strange season. same number of games and at bats, his homers are 3 times higher at home and hitting .100 points higher on the road with more RBI and doubles. I can’t remember a greater disparity for a big name player as this one is. No logical explaination.

    I guess Abreu’s .411 OBP justifies the spot in the 6 hole based on run creation. Has he been dhing while vlad’s on the dl? His defense alone drops him out of the top 10 once it’s factored in.

    Yesterday in that post Pete put up about Chapman the notion that Chapman was disproportionately more immature than comparable players and that he really only wanted to make money came up.

    The evidence for this was that article on ESPN by Jore Arangure.

    Arangure did a chat today and answered some interesting questions about Chapman with regards to maturity and his desire to make money:

    SprungOnSports (Long Island)

    What kind of maturity level does Chapman have on and off the field? Great job on the story.
    Jorge Arangure Jr.
    (12:13 PM)

    Thanks. I think we all need to remember that Aroldis is a 21-year-old kid. His maturity level is akin to any other person of that age. He likes video games, electronics, etc. That doesn’t make him much different than any other person that age in the United States. I genuinely believe Aroldis is a good kid, but so much temptation is coming his way that he’s going to have to really fight from getting sucked into all the distractions.

    ———

    Chris (Tempe, Ariz.)

    Do it you think Chapman’s age and now having all this freedom is a concern for prospective teams? I found it interesting that he spent his four days of freedom partying in Amsterdam.
    Jorge Arangure Jr.
    (1:12 PM)

    I think it’s somewhat of a concern but it shouldn’t be a deciding factor. But can you really blame Chapman for partying? If you were in his situation wouldn’t you be happy to be free? Also, would we ask the same question of a college player partying for several days after he recently graduated or recently got drafted?”

    So the guy who interviewed Chapman and wrote the article is basically saying Chapman is a pretty average 21 year old athlete.

    SJ,

    It’s a minor thing in the grand sceheme of things, but if Girardi knew that by using Hughes on Saturday he would be unavailable on Sunday, then why not let Phil finish the game and keep Robertson fresh if needed for Sunday?

    I admit, some of Girardi’s bullpen moves have left me scratching my head. But this team has the talent and is so good that a lot of times it doesn’t matter.

    Biggest under-appreciated moment of the game was Coke getting Bay to hit into that double play. The floodgates really could have opened after the Martinez home run, but when the score remained 2-1 I still felt the Yanks had a great shot of coming back.

    randy 1:

    “should i sweep in front of his store 6 1/2 times after i sweep in front of mine or would that be poor sportsmanship?”

    Sweep away, my brother. It’s a perfectly peaceful, non-violent expression of your sporting enthusiasm. But it was only ONE sweep so I think proportionality dictates one sweep in front of his store… a long, drawn out, Ed Norton kind of sweep.

    “First, address the broom.”

    “Hello, broom!”

    The beggest thing I’ll take from this weekend is that final strikeout pitch that Burnett threw to Kotchmann. How you throw a 95 MPH FB with movement AFTER throwing 110+ pitches is simply amazing. So glad to be a fan of this team. But, with that said, Boston’s starters were just as good as ours Fri.- Sun. They’re not done by any means.

    I think the line-up will be the “everyday” one… I think you might see a spring training split squad type line-up Wednesday to get as many guys (Jeter, Arod, Damon, Posada) two days off in a row.

    Next two days I think Girardi will just ask everyone to gut through it.

    For the first time in 36 years, the Yankees got three consecutive starts of at least seven scoreless innings, and they came from three men — A.J. Burnett, CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte — who will figure prominently in the Yankees’ postseason plans.

    Don’t know that he’s a major difference maker, but, definately a major upgrade. One thing about it, though…Washington won’t give him away. They have no replacement for him, short of Willie Harris. Boston’s going to end up paying more money for players not to play for them than a couple of teams payrolls. It could also end up stripping out some more of their farm.

    Beckett denied his 14 win(not IN OUR Yard) and a no decision,too.

    Dustin so confused by the loss,that he thought the Sux were still in the lead for the wild card.

    it was more of a “character issue” that led to his departure.

    You can say Jorge’s got passion and all that. But nobody’s perfect, and you got to do a better job at hiding irritation.

    “From what I heard there was a major issue with Cabrea in the club house. Also same problem in Chicago.”

    Cabrera’s problem here in Chicago was that he would call out his teammates and the team in the press. Ozzie couldn’t stand him either. Cabrera and Swisher will definitely not be receiving Christmas cards from the Guillen household. LOL!

    What’s really funny, is about a month ago when Green had a big RBI double and a homer in back to back games and people on this board were whining about Boston always geyying castoffs and making the better, using Green as the examplle….wondering why he couldn’t play for the yanks like he does for Boston. Guess what? He is, and that’s why NYY didn’t keep him. Basically, he’s Cody Ransom.

    Last week when he faced Halladay, I frantically searched my room for 10 minutes for my Pettitte t-shirt. I have worn it at some point everyday during our win streak ( side note, it was only worn in my house, I didnt wear a 6 day old shirt to work or anything. It goes in the wash today)

    Yes, Posada is serious minded – I think he likes to pattern himself after Thurman but he usually let’s it all go when there’s a big hit. Maybe he was a little more stoic with Damon because it only just tied it up and he was on double deck so he wanted to keep his game face on and then when Tex hit his dinger he figured the game was over because of Mo so he relaxed a little. Who knows but if anyone still has it taped take a look at it, he’s not even looking at Johnny. I probably wouldn’t have mentioned it if it wasn’t for the puzzling quote from Torre’s book on how the old guard didn’t like Damon. I have no idea why anyone would have a problem with Damon because he seems like an ideal teammate. Maybe because he’s so media friendly they are jealous? Has anyone come up with any theories on the Torre story on Damon?

    “Last week when he faced Halladay, I frantically searched my room for 10 minutes for my Pettitte t-shirt. I have worn it at some point everyday during our win streak ( side note, it was only worn in my house, I didnt wear a 6 day old shirt to work or anything. It goes in the wash today)”

    Thank God you put in that caveat about only wearing it in the house. Otherwise, I was going to feel bad for your co-workers. :)

    I know Rodriquez has had his moments (increased range, a few stolen pages) where he’s been better, but I think after the season ends we’re going to find out he’s been at 75% the whole time and that was the expectation all along.

    Afterall he doesn’t need a follow-up surgery again this off-season.

  286. The Ghost August 10th, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    Don’t wash it NYY626! keep wearing it until the streak is over! As Mariano said to AJ – you don’t mess with Karma!

    “I probably wouldn’t have mentioned it if it wasn’t for the puzzling quote from Torre’s book on how the old guard didn’t like Damon. ”

    If you are a member of that old guard, how could reading something like that not piss you off? They still have to play with Damon. The more I hear about the Torre book, the more my dislike for him grows.

    “If so, that’s pretty ironic. You know, considering, that Jorge’s the worst baserunner on the team. Not the slowest, the worst.”

    Rob Thomson held Alex up when he was 1/2 way between 2nd and 3rd.

    I also noticed that Alex made sure to give the Jorge the standing sign very demonstratively when he scored before him on Swisher’s hit.

    I remember that. They were watching the NESPN hype machine.

    ————————————————————

    Boston has a lot of players to unload and they’ll have to pay 95 cents on the dollar to do it, and get zero return. They don’t have replacements for all of them. Their actuall payroll next year could be huge. Nobody’s paying anything to take Matsuzaka. Imagine NYY paying 104 million for two years of a player. That’s an ugly return on the buck.

  290. hey kelvin says August 10th, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    I wonder what francesa would say if he knew josh anderson chanted boli boli boli when A-rod hit that game winning home run.

    Would be interesting reaction…

  291. Come on Yankees fan August 10th, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    NY626 yes and it bothers me greatly,that he didn’t get the win,because runs were scored after he left.Andy pitched his butt off,he’s is and always will be a true blue Yankee.

    Anyone notice that Pettitte went head to head against two of top pitchers in baseball (Halladay and Lester)and outclassed them both?
    ____________________________________________________________:Raises both hands in the air: I did! I did!

    In case anyone hasn’t noticed, I have a slight Andy Pettitte obsession . I just think he’s a fighter, a great teammate, and a classy guy. And I love his death stare on the mound.

    Last week when he faced Halladay, I frantically searched my room for 10 minutes for my Pettitte t-shirt. I have worn it at some point everyday during our win streak ( side note, it was only worn in my house, I didnt wear a 6 day old shirt to work or anything. It goes in the wash today)

  295. Laura - I like the new and improved Alex! He's a keeper. August 10th, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    “Afterall he doesn’t need a follow-up surgery again this off-season.”

    During the game last night, Morgan was remarking on how he had a hitch in his running stride. They showed him run from 1st to 3rd and you could see it. I don’t think I noticed it before until they showed it in slow motion. He’s nowhere near 100% and he won’t be for the rest of the season. However, as we are seeing, Alex at 75% is better than most at 100% so we will take what we can get.

  296. Erica - always OPPC August 10th, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    Are you and Andy in a pretend relationship too?

  297. jpb1973 August 10th, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    I have a question for those who watched post game last night.

    When Joe was talking, all of a sudden he got quite and mumbled something, sounded like he said he can’t do this or something like that. Anyone know what it was about. I watched it 3 times and couldn’t figure it out.

    Maybe he was getting emotional over the sweep? I don’t know.

    ————————————————-

    I think that he was having trouble saying the word R-E-S-I-L-I-E-N-T, which is what the Yankees are now.

  298. Laura - I like the new and improved Alex! He's a keeper. August 10th, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    “Is it my imagination or does it seem like Arod is being accepted by the team and fans this year.”

    The fans are behind him now because he’s had some big clutch moments recently. They’ll be back to booing him if he hits a 2 for 25 stretch.

    Aura, I don’t think Pete would come out and say what the deal w/Posada is here on the board, but you might try e-mailing him.

    Pete’s a true professional (and doesn’t want to burn bridges), but he’s aces about returning e-mails.

    Pete, we love you, man.

  302. Midnight Rambler August 10th, 2009 at 3:16 pm

    I think A-Rod’s HR in the bottom of the 15th will end the boos for quite a while. That was season-changing.

  303. Doreen August 10th, 2009 at 3:17 pm

    Okay -

    So I flipped on the TV so I could do my ironing and Francessa was onbefore I could change the channel and some person called in complaining about Jorge and saying that Jorge was upset that ARod didn’t score on his double last night?

    What the HE** is that about???

    This team is in first place, and why, why, why are there folks who want to stir controversy??? And why was there no mention of this controversy in anythign I read today?

    I’ve heard some rumblings about the RS lokking to get rid of Dice K.

    I’ve heard some that have gone to see their AA team and they talk about how bad the pitching is.

    I watched their AAA team on tv a couple weeks ago and the ba were terrible.

  306. Stuckey August 10th, 2009 at 3:18 pm

    “During the game last night, Morgan was remarking on how he had a hitch in his running stride. They showed him run from 1st to 3rd and you could see it.”

    And he did come out of the scrum Friday night holding his hip. Francesa is suggesting he got hurt then, but at the time it looked to me more like he was purposely exagerrating as in “Hey guys, don’t get too close, remember the hip”.

    If the Yankees can manage to balloon their PLAY-OFF lead to over ten games, I think you might see him get a week or so off after the rosters expand.

    But yeah, he’s definitely not 100% and probably won’t ever be this year.

  307. SJ44 August 10th, 2009 at 3:18 pm

    It will end the booing. It won’t end the hate on blogs.

    If he makes an out in his first AB tonight, people will be on here ripping him to shreds. Its just how it is.

    In the grand scheme of things, it means nothing.

    He’s having an excellent year. His teammates love him, and he’s been clutch all year for them.

    The rest of it is just noise from haters.

  308. Laura - I like the new and improved Alex! He's a keeper. August 10th, 2009 at 3:18 pm

    I would really like for us to win tonight’s game. Sometimes after a BOS series, the guys have a bit of an emotional letdown. They have to keep that intensity up, particularly tonight with Mitre on the mound.

  313. Doreen August 10th, 2009 at 3:21 pm

    Joe was talking about his braces. He just got braces on his teeth, apparently he hates them and he mumbled something to do with that’s what you get for trying to be a good dad. (I’m assuming he got braces to make it easier to one of his kids to go through the process.)

    When I heard him say he got braces, I understood why he’s looked so “pained” lately. I got braces as an adult. The initial part of the process is painful and annoying and uncomfortable.

  314. m August 10th, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    The great thing is that Alex doesn’t seem to care about the hate now. He seems to be in a really good place. That’s all we ever wanted was for him to be happy. :)

  315. Dutchman August 10th, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    I think AJ, and Nick’s personalities have helped this team so much. AJ’s pie’s, and Nick’s fun loving attitude seemed to have fueled the chemistry on this team. I never would have imagined anyone considering shoving a pie in the face of Jorge. I know Jorge was not happy about it, however I think that little game has lightened the mood.

    jorge is also a terrible base runner and not just slow.

    arod is injured, that makes his performance even more astounding. watch lowell move, they had similar injuries, lowell has range like giambi presently…

    the whole pen should be available tonight except Coke.. we may get to see the clean shaven Chad Gaudan tonight…

  319. Nick in SF August 10th, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    It’s possible — please, consider it as a thought exercise — that whatever people thought they saw with Jorge on the bases and in the dugout did not signify what they thought it might.

  320. NYY626 August 10th, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    I mentioned this on the other thread, but Posada is not a “cold fish”. He was standing with AJ during the Alex pieing and he was in a fit of laughter. Also, he seems like a really great guy. I saw him on the HBO Real Sports special talking about his son and how difficult it was for him to play when his son was going through his surgeries. It just made me respect him that much more.

  321. Come on Yankees fan August 10th, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    I’d heard that, also, that Boston was possibly looking for a sucker to take Matsuzaka’s contract.

    For all of the talk about NYY’s contracts, at least those contracts are productive. Boston could be in a world of trouble if those players get any worse, because, they’ll either stink for the next 2-3 years or are going to be shelling out a ton of money to put two players at every position, with most of the money playing somewhere else. There had better be a lot of praying in Beantown.

    I look for John Henry’s marriage to be in trouble when he maxes out her credit cards to buy a pitcher, a shortstop, a corner outfielder and a DH.

    i’ve been very critical of arod and especially arod’s contract for a very long time, i was glad he opted out and didnt want him re-signed.

    but i will say right now, that arod has absolutly come through in every way this season so far. he’s playing hurt, he’s hustling as much as his hip is letting him, he is mixing in and just being a part of the team and most of all, he’s CLUTCH!

    he is answering all the criticisms of him that i’ve had. its really amazing the turnaround in him since this winter. madonna and serena williams are already long in the past and playing winning baseball is all he’s about. nobody can say he’s getting garbage time homers or meaninglessly padding his stats. he’s done everything he can to just be part of this team instead of sucking all the air out of the room.

    who knows how long it will last or how he’ll do in october, but what he’s doing for the yankees this year clears the slate as far as im concerned. tex may be the mvp but arod is THE MAN!

    That’s entirely possible. But we weren’t there so we can only make assumptions based on what we saw. I know that I’ve seen Jorge’s face a couple of times when Swisher was nearby and he was not smiling.

    “Guys calling it “rock bottom”. More than one post referencing “DFA Bard”. They want Tito fired.”

    Which proves that they are as stupid as we think they are. How is any of this Francona’s fault? Is it his fault that Ortiz and Varitek can’t use steroids anymore and are worthless at the plate? Is it his fault that his pitching staff is in shambles save for Lester and Beckett? If I had one criticism of Tito, it’s that he shouldn’t have put Pukelis in LF. That reeked of desperation.

    i liked el tiante last night. i dont care they were pushing thier programming. if it results in luis tiant talking baseball on tv, im all for it. especially since luis worked both sides of the yankees-socks divide.

    which did u people want more of, morgan or phillips anyway?

  362. Bronx Jeers August 10th, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    Oh we see all the same things in here.

    People were still complaining about Phil Coke an hour after the game ended.

  363. BR August 10th, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    While the Yankees clearly outplayed the Sox this weekend, I thought Francona did an awful job. Girardi outmanaged him and then some in that 15 inning game when Francona had to go to Tazawa while Girardi still had 2 more relievers available. The he basically concedes a 2-0 game by putting in that scrub they just called up after Ramirez got ejected.

    And finally as Laura mentioned, Youkilis in LF was in my mind inexcuseable. Youk is their best player and you not only have him playing a diff position everyday even though he is one of the best 1b in the league but you stick him in LF??? He was hung out to dry and embarassed esp after he dropped the ball Damon hit. You do all that to your best player just to get Casey Kotchman’s bat in the lineup. Pretty shocking from a guy proclaimed by ESPN to be by far the best manager in baseball.

  364. MaineYankee August 10th, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    Someone called in on local radio and said the song for the RS should be THE END by the Doors. :lol:

  366. m August 10th, 2009 at 3:43 pm

    Jeter’s edge,

    I wasn’t trying to be funny. :(

    my gripe with Alex was that he was weird and such a head case.

    But that’s not the case anymore. I think his coming out with the truth has allowed him to open up a bit more and not be so guarded. The sharks (media) aren’t circling any more. ;)

  367. Jose August 10th, 2009 at 3:44 pm

    Jweav,

    No but they had/have an out. Tiant played for both teams. Coulda done without it though

    There’s a great bakery in Newark called “Teixeira Bakery” and they’re missing a huge opportunity here.

    They should be the official ‘pie makers’ of the New York Yankees!

  373. BR August 10th, 2009 at 3:47 pm

    Yeah and this Jose Reyes thing Francessa keeps pushing is getting pretty annoying. Speaking of the Red Sox pulling off a blockbuster trade this offseason where is all this great talent and deep farm system they supposedly have?

    Bucholz is their prize pitcher but he has looked bad and hasn’t Lars Anderson (the guy everyone in Red Sox Nation pointed to after they missed out on Tex) been awful at Double-A. I heard Bowden is good, but suddenly when the Red Sox have tons of holes you don’t see them being filled by their “amazing” farm system.

    My question is for someone with more knowledge of the situation… Is their farm system really that deep?

  374. pat August 10th, 2009 at 3:47 pm

    The sharks are still circling but Alex is chumming the water less. :wink:

  375. Bronx Jeers August 10th, 2009 at 3:48 pm

    Youk was funny out there. After the error and a subsequent out he was having a good time with some fans that were giving him an earfull.

    Then he misplayed another ball.

    The smiles stopped after that.

    Prior to Sat’s game he said “I’ll play where ever they need me”

    After Sat he says “I’m not a left fielder”

  376. Ham Fighters August 10th, 2009 at 3:50 pm

  377. Rose August 10th, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    “I’d heard that, also, that Boston was possibly looking for a sucker to take Matsuzaka’s contract.”

    At least RS got something out of Matsuzaka. What did Igawa give the Yankees? Both teams have had bad signings, be fair abut it.

  378. Rose August 10th, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    that’s about not abut

  379. Ham Fighters August 10th, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    bouncing youkilis around is ridiculous. he is thier best player and they should be moving everybody else around to accomodate him. they would be best to put him at 3B and make lowell move to 1B and split time with kotchman. tek is worthless at this point, victor may not be as good behind the plate but if he hits, his bat makes up for the defensive drop-off.

  380. randy l. August 10th, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    tom tresh15, maine yankee, murphydog-

    thanks for the helpful advice . i’ve decided to wait until there’s at least a dozen die hard red sox fans sitting in the chairs out front of the liquor store after they’ve finished their jobs for the day and are checking up on the town’s happenings( where else would folks gather in a small resort town)

    then right when all the seats are full, i’m going for one long slow sweep from one end to the other :)

  381. rover August 10th, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Jorge’s reaction after JD’s rocket was likely due to having to plan the next inning or change his thoughts. Catching takes thought. JD’s tying the game maybe changed his thoughts a bit. Buth then maybe he was just chillin. Who knows but Jorge was just bieng Jorge!

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  397. great article August 9th, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  403. find more August 10th, 2014 at 5:21 am

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Throughout the grand pattern of things you get an A+ with regard to effort. Where exactly you confused everybody was first in the details. You know, people say, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be much more true at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you exactly what did give good results. Your article (parts of it) is highly powerful and that is possibly why I am making the effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can easily see the jumps in logic you make, I am not really confident of exactly how you seem to unite the details which make your conclusion. For now I will, no doubt yield to your point however wish in the near future you link the dots better.
