Sabathia: “I definitely screwed it up”

Yankees Red Sox Baseball

CC Sabathia expects big things of himself, and he seemed to expect most of the blame for tonight’s Opening Day loss to the Red Sox. The Yankees had a four-run lead with their ace on the mound, but it fell apart in the second half.

“I think I had good stuff, I just nibbled too much,” Sabathia said. “Early in the game I was still strike one, right there. Later in the game I’m trying to throw down and away and I’m missing down. I just think I nibbled a little too much and got behind and got in hitters counts. It’s a tough lineup to try to pitch to when you’re in hitters counts.”

Much was made of the Red Sox concentration on defense this winter, but this is certainly not a bad lineup. Sabathia said both Mike Cameron and Marco Scutaro had singles off changeups in the fifth inning. He said the Red Sox were patient, forcing him to throw strikes in good hitters counts. Sabathia tried to walk a line between being aggressive and fooling hitters with his stuff.

“It’s a fine line and today I definitely screwed it up,” Sabathia said. “Just trying to make pitches and try to trick the guys instead of just coming right after them with a four run lead.”

Obviously a lot of the blame has to fall on the bullpen. Not a single reliever got through the game without allowing a run to score, but Joe Girardi said he couldn’t make too big of a deal out of one bad game. “Even if they’d thrown all zeros, we can’t make too much of it,” he said. Bottom line, the Yankees seem to have this game won when they were up four runs with their ace on the mound.

“Something about this field, it always seems like the game’s not over with,” Derek Jeter said. “They battled. They were down 5-1, CC was rolling along, and then their bats woke up.”

Here’s the Sabathia audio. It’s a little noisy in the beginning but gets better.

    If CC screwed up what did Beckett do?

    Leave it to Sox stinksniffer Heyman.

    What about BG, CG, Po Po (aside from passed ball) for best.

  4. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 5th, 2010 at 1:30 am

    My favorite post game comments were from Curtis Granderson. He told Kim that he was disappointed that the Boston fans weren’t giving him the finger when he got off the bus. He wanted to be more disliked by the Boston fans to really feel a part of the rivalry.

  5. Salty Buggah April 5th, 2010 at 1:33 am

    Hey Derek I wished the Yankees top of the order woke up too! CC you stunk tonight!

  6. belial April 5th, 2010 at 1:34 am

    “What about BG, CG, Po Po (aside from passed ball) for best.”

    Well, Gardner made a throw that made him the laughingstock of the announcing crew, Granderson showed he still can’t hit lefties and Posada showed he still is a weak defensive catcher.

    Youk is probably a better hitter than anyone on the Yanks and Pedroia already proved himself superior to Cano.

  7. 7789 April 5th, 2010 at 1:38 am

    Man this lineup is going to be fun to watch. They were working counts seeing a lot of pitches top to bottom in the order. They are going to abuse starting pitchers this year.

    Swisher not cutting off the ball properly was a killer also I give Posada a break on the pass ball because Marte was all over the place. He is turning into the bullpen version of El Duque. Park didn’t make the best first impression but the bullpen will be fine.

  8. Uncle Dick April 5th, 2010 at 1:39 am

    Youk is probably a better hitter than anyone on the Yanks and Pedroia already proved himself superior to Cano.

    And you got all that from 1 game, or if you’d like to compare numbers over a time span feel free.

  9. m April 5th, 2010 at 1:39 am

    CC’s a stand-up guy. Everything he said on point, but Girardi should’ve “rescued” him a bit rather than he pull a Phil Jackson.

    No reason why CC shouldn’t have started the 6th, pitch count was more than fine. But we all recognized that CC wasn’t very sharp. After the first couple of guys got on, play it safe and let CC fight another day.

    In the end, it didn’t matter, though. Bullpen failed to hold another lead at Fenway.

    Good things: Chasing Beckett. Early.

  10. Alex April 5th, 2010 at 1:40 am

    Offense scored 7 runs. we’re going to score plenty this year.

    Our “ace” couldn’t hold a 4 run lead. And Park stinks… send him back to the NL where he can feast on weak lineups.

  11. Uncle Dick April 5th, 2010 at 1:40 am

    Did you write that with a straight face?

  13. Jay April 5th, 2010 at 1:42 am

    With how the pen ended up looking, maybe Girardi had a reason for sticking with CC.

    I can’t imagine he had much confidence in Marte or Joba. Probably too much confidence in Park based off ST stats.

  14. Salty Buggah April 5th, 2010 at 1:43 am

    I’ll give Gardner, Granderson and Posada a pass, because they hit well and carried the team. Nick, Tex and the pen were awful.Marte ,and Park made me ill.

  15. CR9 April 5th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    OMG

    Like nobody has ever made a poor throw before!! And the laughingstock of the ESPN Red Sox fan crew!!! I never would have believed that ESPN’s Red Sox fans would laugh at a guy for one bad throw.

    CG walked against a lefty.

    And I said aside from Po Po’s mental mistake passed ball.

  16. Zero April 5th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    ‘something about this field…’

    yeah, its a little league field. Most of their hits to left were routine fly balls in any other stadium in the league.

  17. Jeremy April 5th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    You guys should know by now that CC always starts off slow from the start of the season.

    I knew we were going to lose based on that fact alone. But Beckett is not that great. Ever since 2007 his performance has been going down hill. I think Jon Lester will be the ace of the Red Sox staff.

    And to the poster who said Youk is a better hitter than anyone in the Yankee lineup I have one word for you: IDIOT !

  18. 7789 April 5th, 2010 at 1:46 am

    Pedrioa is a product of hitting in Fenway park just look at his home and away splits. Cano is a much better hitter its not even close.

  19. BJK April 5th, 2010 at 1:47 am

    ———————————————————————————————————–

    CC clearly ran out of gas. Robertson should have been brought in to face Youkilis. It feels like Girardi wanted CC to face Ortiz, but Robertson can handle Ortiz.

    With no game tomorrow, no need to conserve the pen. Roberton the 6th, Park the 7th, Joba the 8th, Mo the 9th should have been the plan. If Robertson comes in 2 batters earlier, we might have seen a different result.

  20. Yanks 182 April 5th, 2010 at 1:48 am

    We face the Sox best pitcher on Tuesday.

    And unless AJ goes 7 or 8, the pen will blow it even if we have a lead.

    I know, right? They probably shouldn’t even show up. What with the bullpen being so bad and everything.

  22. Jeremy April 5th, 2010 at 1:56 am

    Wow ! Will some of you grow a dang spine and stop complaining.

    All I hear is Doom and Gloom. “The Red Sox are so great how come we can’t beat the best team in baseball the Red Sox”

    People it’s the first game of the season. Last year our pen sucked in the first half of the season- and look what happened after that. We also got beat by the Red Sox in the first half- and look what happened after that.

    If you want to do the gloom and doom game than become a Red Sox fan because they are famous for crying and complaining.

  23. Mineo April 5th, 2010 at 1:56 am

    i just have trouble accepting marte as a “good pitcher” when he has compiled a 7.50 ERA over two seasons (not that it’s relevant, but the fact that he racked up over $8million in that span does not help). he averages a walk every two innings, and works primarily as a SPECIALIST with these numbers. specialists should have an lower ERA than all other relievers because the manager matches them up according to their own personal strengths. starters should have a higher ERA because they have to face an entire lineup and, consequently, those that take advantage of merely being lefty, righty, or a great hitter vs. a specific type of pitch or pitching style. lefty specialists, in particular, have the easiest job in the world because they know exactly who their opponent will be each time out. the managers know too, so this statistical match-up process leaves no excuses for useless pieces of nothing like marte. i mean, one can probably pull out a complex algorithm that disagrees with me and i would be interested in that (as long as its timely and relevant), but the numbers are clear: 7.50 ERA as a LEFTY specialist, while walking 16 in 30. you are going to tell me that Boone Logan is going to do worse than that? even so, he’s more affordable and i can guarantee that logan has enough raw stuff to keep it under 6. most of the numbers you see for marte, like his stats against ortiz, are ridiculously outdated. pitching match-up stats are pretty irrelevant when a pitcher is washed-up and is in no way a representation of his former self. therefore, you can throw all prior stats out the window and focus on what is relevant right now, especially in the case of a lefty specialist. so his past two seasons should illustrate that he most certainly is not a “good” pitcher, or even a mediocre one. it would be generous to call him below-average.

    if marte is a good pitcher as a lefty specialist, then mike myers pitching for the yankees from 2006-2007 was literally the second coming of christ. okajima must be the third coming then. i’m just saying man, it’s hard to say marte is good when 90% of the teams in baseball have a better lefty reliever in their pen. it makes it even more pathetic when you think about this: the salaries combined for marte, park, and mitre could buy a very nice 8th inning guy. it’s clear the yankees don’t know how to address certain components of their ball club. past plagues to the rotation has caused the front office to become overly concerned with the state of the rotation, purchasing 8 starters as a result and no relievers. attempting to turn these relievers into starters, or use starters that were already turned into relievers after showing incompetence, is suicide as demonstrated by joba (especially with the overly discreet way the front office does things). it’s like a domino effect of career suicides that fans have to watch painfully every year, starting with joba.

    i pick on marte because lefty specialists have no excuse to not produce at least halfway-decent numbers due to their match-up advantages. chan ho park sucks but he’s also not getting paid a lot, will be demoted by may because of that, and he is not a lefty specialist so i should not be expecting an ERA under 5 from him. it just amazes me that someone can post nearly a run per inning for two years, make 4 million dollars each of those years, and still remain on that team’s MAJOR LEAGUE ROSTER. a championship-contending team no less.

    yes damaso marte is so bad he made me compare mike myers to jesus christ
    goodnight

    Does anyone know what John Sterling’s call for Granderson’s home run was?

  25. Evan April 5th, 2010 at 1:59 am

    Digya ask GI Joe, why he let CC come out for the 6th, when CC had allowed 3 hits and a walk in the 5th?

    ————————————————————————————————————

    CC should have come out for the 6th. Bad innings happen. But when he allowed Pedroia and Martinez on base, that’s when he should’ve been pulled.

  27. m April 5th, 2010 at 2:02 am

    Cuz his pitch count was in the high 70′s? Cuz it was only 5-2? Cuz you can’t run through your bullpen early in Fenway?

  28. Carl April 5th, 2010 at 2:06 am

    Oh Curtis, you’re something sort of Grandish. lol sterling.

  29. Evan3457 April 5th, 2010 at 2:15 am

    Jeez, Mineo…did you even watch the postseason last year?

  30. Rich in NJ April 5th, 2010 at 2:24 am

    Just another game.

    GN

  31. m April 5th, 2010 at 2:27 am

    I guess I’m the one closing up shop.

    I’ll end with a mini-rant @ mlb.

    Schedule the off day in the opening series for the 4th day. Can be used as a makeup day or a travel day. No need to have a day for the Sox to recover from the after-party hosted by Neil Diamond/Steven Tyler.

  32. Pat M. April 5th, 2010 at 2:30 am

    Goodnite m……I don’t much for Youk and his act, but the dude can certainly stick

  33. Nick in SF in Larkspur April 5th, 2010 at 2:31 am

    So people with Game Two tickets suddenly have Opening Day tickets and people with Opening Day tickets suddenly have Rain Makeup Game tickets?

    That’s what they want to avoid.

  34. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 5th, 2010 at 5:37 am

    Morning all.

    I’m not certain I agree with those who were saying that the Red Sox are clearly a weaker team. They are still a team that is capable of taking advantage of another team’s mistakes. And I also wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss Beckett. I loved what the Yankees were able to do against him last night but I’m not willing to go the distance and say that’s the Beckett they’re going to get every time – just like CC’s not going to be falling apart in the 6th inning most of the time.

    From the remarks last night, I sure am glad I was able to watch the game on YES. I would never have been able to stomach listening to the ESPN crew, if they were so clearly gleeful when the Red Sox starting getting back into the game.

    Well, off to get ready for the drive to LI this morning. I’ll catch up with y’all later.

  35. OKI/DAVE April 5th, 2010 at 5:43 am

    Bottom line in Boston. Yanks lose again. Attn: MLB schedulers, just like last year and probably next year, the Yankees will probably open up in Boston and maybe like at 10 p.m the next time.

  36. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 5th, 2010 at 6:41 am

    Doreen,

    Agree about watching on YES. It was nice to hear it from the Yankees perspective. Loved the new graphics too.

  37. Rich in NJ April 5th, 2010 at 6:57 am

    “Oh Curtis, you’re something sort of Grandish. lol sterling.”

    Make it stop.

  38. Rick April 5th, 2010 at 7:25 am

    This is Boston’s World Series. Let them get all puffy chested. They’re a lousy road team and that will bring them back to earth.

  39. blake April 5th, 2010 at 7:28 am

    Let’s focus on the positives from last night.

    They swung the bats pretty darn well for opening day. Granderson looked good and Gardner had some good ABs.

    Joba had the best velocity I’ve seen him have all spring and threw a couple of good slider. The results weren’t very good but there were signs that he’s progressing a bit.

    It was a sloppy and poorly played game but that’s kinda what you expect in Game 1. In another stadium Arods double may have been a HR and Pedroias HR may have been a fly out and the game then looks different. Its one game guys….they lost the first 8 against the Sox last year and still ended up with the ring.

    BTW: reports are saying the the billionaire owner of the Nets is gonna throw a ton of cash at Coach K.

  40. upstate kate April 5th, 2010 at 7:32 am

    was that really Sterling’s Granderson HR call?

    I didn’t dare read thru the game posts, hopefully there wasn’t too much bridge jumping. I was glad to see Curtis hit a HR on his first AB, and Jorge have a good night.

    I was happy to be able to watch the game on YES.

  41. MS April 5th, 2010 at 7:32 am

    The first game of the year and our best option to hold the 7-5 lead is Park. I hate to second guess after 1 game, but it was the 1st game and everybody should be available. Park shouldn’t see the field until at least Wednesday. Where was Aceves?

  42. Frank April 5th, 2010 at 7:35 am

    “Does anyone know what John Sterling’s call for Granderson’s home run was?”

    Sadly, it was exceedingly bad.

    Something sort of Grandish? I think that’s from some Broadway show, but wherever it’s from, that is just awful. He’s allowed to change it, right?

  43. dan April 5th, 2010 at 7:37 am

    I JUST WANTED TO APOLIGIZE FOR MY BEHAVIOR LAST NIGHT. I JUST GOT A BIT TOO EXCITED AND HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO WITH MY TIME.

  44. Frank April 5th, 2010 at 7:43 am

    “The first game of the year and our best option to hold the 7-5 lead is Park. I hate to second guess after 1 game, but it was the 1st game and everybody should be available.”

    I was a little puzzled by Robertson not being back out there after throwing only a half dozen or so pitches to close out the sixth. In fairness though, Park was excellent in his spring training efforts, so I’m not too upset with Girardi using him there.

  45. blake April 5th, 2010 at 7:47 am

    I still think this bullpen will be really good. The only thing I saw that really concerned me was Marte just because of how erratic he looked.

    It may have just been rust (he didn’t throw that much this spring)..but if something isn’t right with him they need to get it fixed…he’s too important later in the year.

  46. Frank April 5th, 2010 at 7:53 am

    Agreed Blake. Tough spot for Marte to be in given his lack of work over ST. Looked like he really wasn’t ready.

  47. upstate kate April 5th, 2010 at 7:54 am

    think of the bullpen the Yankees started w/ last year…this one is so much better.

    AJ will have his work cut out for him, I think Lester is the sox’s real ace.

  48. Patrick April 5th, 2010 at 7:55 am

    That was a pretty brutal game to watch after the 4th or 5th inning but the only thing that really bothers me is Joba. His stuff is awful, it’s painful to watch him pitch.

  49. Frank April 5th, 2010 at 7:57 am

    Patrick:

    Funny thing about Joba is he had me believing a little when he got Beltre to close the 7th. He was at 94-95 and busted off a couple really nice sliders. In the eighth, he was a different guy.

  50. GreenBeret7 April 5th, 2010 at 8:11 am

    I’m not in the least concerned about last night’s game. It was a normal, bizarre Fenway game. However, I can’t say the same about this board, last night. Between the trolls and some of the “Yankee fans”, it was Armageddon…..a real bloodbath. It was as bad or worse than Boston boards….the ones a lot of those same fans laugh at and make fun of.

  51. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 8:14 am

    I don’t blame Sabathia at all. He got tired and he’s a slow starter anyway. I first-guessed Joe; he should have taken CC out after the 5th. Then, he should have left Robertson in. The Yankees did squat against Bard and Paplebon and were bad defensively (Gardner and Swisher). It was just a lousy night all around. I’m not worried about CC – that’s all I’ll say.

    GB, it was really just one troll who Sam and Chad really should ban ASAP.

  52. 27 reasons to smile.. April 5th, 2010 at 8:14 am

  53. DaSaint007 April 5th, 2010 at 8:14 am

    The Good: Gardner had 2 hits, stole home (in your face Ellsbury!), and an RBI; Granderson doing well in CF and at the plate. Posada hitting early. Scoring 7 runs at Fenway.

    The Bad: Posada’s defensive liabilities on display early. Bullpen shaky to start the season.

    The Ugly: The ‘Damonic’ throw from Gardner in LF. Marte-Posada. Giving up 9 runs at Fenway, which is what it ususally takes to win there.

    Always love these”I hate to complain…I hate to second guess” posts, then start out with second guessing. It was just one lousy game. Take a deep breath and hold it until somebody tells you to start breathing again.

  55. upstate kate April 5th, 2010 at 8:16 am

    good morning GB, how are you feeling these days?

  56. Angela April 5th, 2010 at 8:17 am

    The Yankees couldn’t hold on to two leads. Is it cause for concern? No. It reminds me of every other year. What I would like to see is the destruction of that place they call a ball park. Thank God the Red Sox now have to play more games on the road, and we all know how that turns out!

  57. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 8:18 am

    Blake, I think Joba will be fine (not necessarily great, though), but velocity doesn’t mean much if he’s not effective. The last run he gave up was a dagger in the heart last night.

    Eh, I thought last night’s game was brutal in almost every way. Swisher was bad, the D was bad, the pen was bad.

  58. sunny615 April 5th, 2010 at 8:19 am

    One game… one game… one game…

    deep breaths…

  59. upstate kate April 5th, 2010 at 8:19 am

    DaSaint

    that double steal was my favorite part of the entire game :)

  60. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Blowing a 5-1 lead against Beckett is just a bad job. AJ does have his work cut out for him against Lester and the nightmare that is Fenway (at least for him).
    Also, I think Doreen is correct – people are underestimating the Sox.

  61. Uncle Vito April 5th, 2010 at 8:21 am

    It IS only one game, but I can’t stand losing to Boston, especially with the cast of true “donkeys” they feature on that team: Puke, Beck@$$, RatBoy…..I could go on and on. Come back and win the series and I will be OK, but truly, I wouldn’t be 100% happy unless we won every game against Boston.

    There was more than just one. They can be ignored, but, some of the “real fans” made it just as annoying. It was just a typical Fenway game…just one. This team has more talent than last year’s team that blew the doors off of MLB. It’s got more talent than the 1998 team, so, it’s Girardi’s and the team player leadership’s duty to get rest of the team to that level.

  63. Uncle Vito April 5th, 2010 at 8:23 am

    Angela, I couldn’t agree with you more. That ballpark is a true joke. Let’s see, we don’t have room to put a regulation size ballpark in this space…” .I have an idea, let’s make OUR park NON REGULATION SIZE, so WE have the advantage of playing in an area that is NOT really an outfield for 1/2 of our games, where pop flied to left are doubles and home runs to right are outs….WA-HOOOO….great idea !!! “

    Simon, you’d better hope that Erica doesn’t see that last remark about “The Damonic Throw”. E-mail Chad to have him delete it before she sees it, cause I wouldn’t give a plugged nickle for your cyber-safety.

  66. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 8:26 am

    Morning, Kate. I’m doing really well. thank you for asking. No razor slashes, no bald spots (at least, no new ones) after last night. Morgan’s bringing the twins by this morning, so, just how bad can life be? How have you been? all is well and dry in your little corner of The Universe.

  70. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 8:32 am

    I do think it’s a good idea to not read the papers. I made the mistake of reading Davidoff and he closes with this line:

    “Nevertheless, a smack in the face like last night’s will splash cold water on anyone. If the Yankees do somehow wind up complacent, the Red Sox – and the Rays as well – will gladly sprint right by them”

    What complacency had to do with last night is beyond me. He was clearly impressed by the Sox comebackability, which is absolutely fair, but complacency?

    “GB, no way this team has more talent than the 1998 team. That team was the best team I will ever see in my lifetime, in several lifetimes actually.”

    Don’t know how old you are, but a couple of those mid 70′s Reds teams may have something to say about that.

    As for the 2010 Yankees, I agree with GB. They may not be a better TEAM than the 1998 edition of the Yankees, but they do have more talent.

    All the bent nails shouldn’t get too far out of shape because we can afford to lose all of these games and it won’t make one iota of difference.

    The season isn’t going to be determined by one or even a few series against Boston.

    Just watch the giant, heavy millwheel that is the Yankees grind down the competition over the course of the season.

    By the time the Yankees are done with them only dust will be left.

    Focus on the positives and forget the rest.

    “This team has more talent than last year’s team that blew the doors off of MLB. ”

    Nope.

    Granderson and NJ are weaker than Damon and Matsui, imo. You just can’t have a guy that slow in the number two spot.

    And the bullpen is weaker by a wide margin with Hughes in the rotation.

    If you match them position by position, that team doesn’t come close in the talent level, except for the bench, center and right field. They might not reach O’Neill’s and williams’ batting averages, but, they can just about match their run production with their normal seasons. Left field is no wose than an unknown or a push, right now. That rotation can’t match the 5 this year. Bullpen should be about the same at worst and could be better.

    Kate, I hope the Yankees steal against boston every time they get someone with speed on the bases. Every inning, every game, all year, until their arms fall off. This is the worst defensive team as far as catcher goes, and they deserve to have 200 bases stolen off them this year.

  83. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 8:37 am

    It’s pathetic to read things like

    “Youk is probably a better hitter than anyone on the Yanks and Pedroia already proved himself superior to Cano.”

    One game has gone by. Can we move on to tomorrow already? Our bullpen had a rough night and a passed ball cost us the game. Thats not gonna happen every time that CC is on the mound. In fact, it may never happen with CC on the mound again. A 5-1 game will probably never be lost for the rest of the season in those circumstances.

    Don’t be upset with Park – he got a couple of really awful strike calls. You can’t do too much about that. Be worried about Marte though. He looks hurt.

  98. MTU (aka GBURL) April 5th, 2010 at 8:47 am

    Here’s some positives from last night’s game.

    Tex proved once again what a great fielding 1st baseman he is.

    Cano looked like a monster at the plate and he was pretty much heads up in the field.

    GGBG had 2 hits and stole a base.

    Grandy mashed one and looked great in center.

    Arod looked as smooth as silk with the glove.

    Other than runnign out of gas CC looked better than Beckett.

    Posada has amazing bat speed for a guy his age.

    Shall I continue ? ;)

  99. Coach6423 April 5th, 2010 at 8:48 am

    For those who are not lucky enough to get the YES broadcast here are some of the gems you missed.

    *The Granderson HR was nice and all but he STRUCK OUT 145 times last year….repeated a bajillion times.

    *Nick Johnson is the glass man.

    *Robbie Cano hit .228 with RISP last year. No mention of the RBI with runner at third.

    *Robbie Cano is lazy for not getting a double on his linedrive to right.

    *Joba Chamberlain is a failed starting pitcher.

    *Josh Beckett was actually pitching well.

    *Phil Hughes is a failed starting pitcher.

    *Joba licks his fingers with more veracity coming out of the pen.

    *Pedroia is going to hit 20 HR this year…repeated 50 times.

    *Red Sox OF are rarely going to have balls drop in because they are so good defensively.

  100. DaSaint007 April 5th, 2010 at 8:48 am

    10 Things I really liked about last night’s game:

    1. A-Rod seems to really be throwing the ball sharply once he fields it at 3rd. No more hitch to his movement.
    2. Jeter is Jeter. Situational hitting on display as always.
    3. Gardner may actually get on base and do damage.
    4. Girardi looks like he’s intent on using the new dimension of speed when the opportunity presents itself.
    5. Tex can make some great plays at 1st.
    6. Cano appears comfortable as the #5 hitter, and could drive in 100 RBIs this year.
    7. Swisher appears more comfortable at the plate.
    8. Girardi wasn’t afraid to empty the pen: Robertson, Park, Marte, Joba.
    9. CC’s velocity was good.
    10. It’s game 1.

    Not day to day, but I’ll be keeping a watchful eye.

    I have a suspicion his numbers in the Detroit ballpark won’t be as kind as the Yankee Stadium numbers. At which point, this place will be rampant with “I told you so” trolls and that would make me rather sick. So I hope Johnny rocks Detroit.

  102. charlestonchew April 5th, 2010 at 8:49 am

    I also don’t see any reason why Burnett can’t shut down the Sox tomorrow and Andy shut them down the next time.

    They’ve done it before. Stop being pessimistic. We’re gonna lose 9 times to the Red Sox this year and over 60 times overall. Get used to it.

    Either way, if they loss the next two, it’s not like this team hasn’t traveled down this road. Is it upseting if it happens, sure. But not the end of season.

    Other then the pen (and CC from pitch 85 on) there was a lot to like about the game.

    In regards to Rodriguez’ defense, not only is his lateral movement much better, but, starting last year, he has been very steady on pop-ups and fould. He used to stagger, though, not sure why, because he didn’t have that problem in seattle or texas. Makes you almost wonder if it might have been an inner ear infection or something. i don’t remember him getting hit with a baseball in the head, or suffer any concussions like Damon. It’s like he has his balance back.

    Frank, that is my point. Posada’s home run is NOT a home run…that whole park is a joke. The idiots who built is are the same ones who spawned their idiot fans. I have an idea. How about we make a baseball park in an area that is even SMALLER than the area that Boston decided to cram theirs in and put Green Monster Walls on ALL of the outfield walls…oh, wait,,,and to make up for it, we play with slow pitch softballs and let the outfielders have jetpacks so they can hover around the tops of the walls to try to pick off the pop flies, I mean, er home run, before they escape the park !

  120. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 5th, 2010 at 9:07 am

    You mean that CC WASN’T gassed and he was just nibbling instead of going after hitters? You mean that Girardi actually does know how to manage and knew CC wasn’t gassed and therefore left him in the game because of that?

    Well ain’t that a kick in the head!

    :D

    Since last night was nothing more than a trip back to the future, I’m confident in the Yankees abilities to win it all and vow not to drown per game, nor drown per pitch, nor drown per AB – nor make everyone else drown in negativity by having to comment on who has a “bad” AB, or who makes a “terrible” throw, or who should or shouldn’t be part of the Yankees bullpen. In the first game of the season especially. Just wow. :)

    Oh wait. I never do that anyway. In any game! Never mind.

    I think SJ attempted to make a very sage comment last night when he alerted the forum that certain “mistakes” were part of the game. I think the message was that it was probably good not to make negative comment about things that will happen in all games and will likely happen throughout the course of the season. In game one of the season especially.

    Bod – I truly hope you change your mind about coming back, though I understand how you feel. It really isn’t a lot of fun when you have to see posters wasting their time cautioning the same cadre over and over again about why they shouldn’t be weirding out. It interrupts the flow of the forum as well as the true enjoyment of the game.

    Yes there are some of us who actually weren’t thrown by last night’s loss. In fact I bet that was most of us. But all it takes is one or two voices continually throwing in negative obssessive comments to make this an unpleasant place to be.

    Good morning.

    I don’t know which was worse, how the game ended or the comments section last night. Outside of those too few that actually dealt with the game, the comments were idiocy upon idiocy. I know Chad and LoHud count the hits, and 1600 is a lot of views, but it was ridiculous. I don’t know what can be done, but we can’t go through a season like this.

  128. SJ44 April 5th, 2010 at 9:16 am

    I’d have pulled CC after he walked Pedroia to start the 6th. He was spent by then.

    The only thing that was mildly disappointing last night was Park. His inning turned the game.

    Shutdown inning there, the Yankees win.

    The hysterics though really pollute the game thread.

    It’s not just Red Sox trolls. It’s emotional children who are Yankees fans and use the forum as a vent box.

    That’s not the purpose of the forum.

    Unfortunately, that’s what game threads become when the Yankees lose.

    We can probably get rid of trolls like Dan since he is only here to disrupt the forum. But what do you do about the other ridiculousness other than continually interrupt the game to tell people not to freak out? It is pathetic. And we will continue to lose good posters in the process. Nobody wants to have to read through nonstop negative commentary, especially when it is unnecessary or over-the-top commentary. Yes, it is a real problem.

    If we had an ignore button, it would probably cut the comments most of us would read in half. But we would be able to bypass the constant negativity. I hope the hosts think about it. Then they would get their hits and some of us could enjoy the forum and the season – despite the Yankees having the audacity to give up hits, give up runs, make bad throws, strike out, and, horrors, lose games.

  135. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 9:25 am

    Andrew Marchand is an idiot and anyone who read his column comparing the 2 pitching staffs would know that.

    Wally’s history speaks for himself. I’m not sure why any Yankee fan would subject themselves to this crap.

  136. pat April 5th, 2010 at 9:25 am

    Last night was a typical Yankee/Sox game in Fenway. Pinball baseball where no lead is safe. The Sox are built for that ballpark just like the Yanks are built for the Stadium.

    Good job by MTU and DaSaint pointing out some positives.

    I hate the off-day. Do the players have an organized workout day today or are they just on down time until tomorrow night?

  137. SJ44 April 5th, 2010 at 9:25 am

    Some of these guys contribute to the hysterics coach.

    It’s the blind leading the blind.

    One game and panic sets in.

    It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

    Morning.

    So that’s why you’re so good at blowing up trolls.

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    I;m not sure blowing them up is a good idea. Too much collateral damage. Neutering them may be the way to go….no more breeding.

  139. Coach6423 April 5th, 2010 at 9:28 am

    SJ it’s really sad. I love that ESPN Boston is Yankee hating homerism, and ESPN New York is Yankee hating Jokersim.

    Anyone catch the classy bostonian, jamming his middle finger in Swishers face on the Youk triple?

  140. MTU (aka GBURL) April 5th, 2010 at 9:29 am

    Betsy-

    You’re taking it personally and I wasn’t directing it at you.

    I was merely trying to illustrate how unimportant it is in the big scheme of things to lose one game.

    If you want to criticize the Yankees that’s your right. Nobody can stop you.

    And you ought to know me well enough by now to know we’re friends and I try to respect people’s opinions.

  141. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 5th, 2010 at 9:31 am

    Chad, Sam, Josh, and Jeff the Tech –

    PLEASE GIVE US FEEDBACK ON THE POSSIBILITY OF INSTALLING AN IGNORE BUTTON ON THIS FORUM.

    The NY Times did it, it’s part of most forums I’ve seen, so it is obviously possible to do it.

    People ask about it continually. I’d really appreciate some kind of response to this, one way or the other.

    Thank you.

  142. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 9:31 am

    MTU, I didn’t say you were directing your comments to me, but you’re basically saying that anyone that criticizes the team is like a chicken with it’s head cut off; that idea is one I disagree with.

  143. SJ44 April 5th, 2010 at 9:32 am

    Betsy,

    it isn’t about being critical about the team. It’s about the swill.

    It brings down the entire thread.

    When you have idiots like Dan/whatever, they offer no meaningful contribution to the forum.

    Not surprising since they most likely offer no meaningful contribution to life but, that’s another subject for another day.

    You can have excellent discussions about the game in the game threads and still eliminate the swill.

    It won’t hurt page views.

    If they don’t do it here, they are going to lose a lot of good posters because nobody is going to put up with the nonsense again this year.

    There is no reason for it.

  144. MTU (aka GBURL) April 5th, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Betsy-

    What SJ expresses most of what I feel.

    Constructive criticism is fine.

    It just when absolute doom and gloom appears 1 game into the season (And I am not saying that was you ) it seems kind of over the top.

  145. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 9:35 am

    SJ, I think Dan ought to be banned; he’s not the person I was referring to, believe me. He polluted the thread and, frankly, it got very hard to ignore him. I hated just skipping past his posts. I don’t consider what he posted criticism; he was just hating on the team and trying to bait people. I’m just pointing out that it’s possible to see negative aspects to the game/team without being a panicky fan. Trolls don’t count and I think something has to be done.

  146. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 5th, 2010 at 9:36 am

    MTU, I’ll bet that troll didn’t believe half of what he said, but he knew it would get a rise out of people. I hated the idea that just scrolling past his posts I was being forced to read them.

  147. DaSaint007 April 5th, 2010 at 9:36 am

    bottomline, is only a matter of time when the yanks are pounding teams on a daily bases

  149. BBFan April 5th, 2010 at 9:38 am

    “GB, it was really just one troll who Sam and Chad really should ban ASAP.”

    It was not just trolls.
    As GB said, some worry-warts (we all know who thye are) and lot of kids making this board unbearable when things are not going right for yankess.

  150. Georgia April 5th, 2010 at 9:38 am

    I love Sabathia. At least, he takes responsibility. If that had been AJ, he would still be talking about how well he pitched.

    I’d like to see thumbs up/down voting on some of these posts. Some people make really great comments and I’d like to give them a thumbs up!

  151. MTU (aka GBURL) April 5th, 2010 at 9:38 am

    What to do is don’t post during the game threads.

    Not sure there is much else one can do ?

  157. pat April 5th, 2010 at 9:46 am

    “What to do is don’t post during the game threads.”

    Game threads need more intelligent posters, not less.

    Chad might as well turn off the comments during the game if it’s only going to be a bunch of Chicken Littles and trolls contributing.

  158. NY Yanks April 5th, 2010 at 9:47 am

    Betsy how many people have to lecture you every game before you get it? You’re a problem and you ruin game threads. Your friends here baby you by saying it’s about the trolls. Read the game thread. Lots of them nicely telling you to back off. But you refuse. Stop your BS about worry. You’re plain selfish.

  159. Rich in NJ April 5th, 2010 at 9:47 am

    I have no idea what Marchand wrote, nor do I want to know, but they want hits, and invented stuff will get them that.

  164. RayVT April 5th, 2010 at 9:57 am

    I wish I had the Yes Network. It was painful listening to the ESPN2 crowd. They drilled Cano for bashing a ball off the RF wall and Drew getting a great bounce and strong throw to 2B and not getting an attempt to get there. Cano was wise to stop at 1st. Also, later Peds did the same thing to LF but his went over the monster via high pop up. ARod’s blast to LF wou;d have been gone anywhere else.

    I kept hearing how Cano couldn’t hit with RISP & he was lazy. Also, that Yanks were old at their core. Grandy couldn’t hit LHP. Also every pitch that was within a block for RSox pitchers was a strike that Ump missed. (V-Mart pulled every pitch to strike zone.) Every mistake made by RSox was uncharacteristic, yet Yank’s mistakes were the norm.

    The very 1st time I saw Joba shake off a pitch (twice on same pitch) Cameron blasted the fastball up the middle. Joba then lost his mojo & looked disgusted.

  165. crusher April 5th, 2010 at 9:59 am

    “7. Swisher appears more comfortable at the plate.”

    what game were you watching? he killed a big inning by hitting into the DP

    “They drilled Cano for bashing a ball off the RF wall and Drew getting a great bounce and strong throw to 2B and not getting an attempt to get there. Cano was wise to stop at 1st. ”

    No, they deservedly bashed lazy cano for jogging out of the gate like he had hit a 500 ft home run. Did anyone actually watch the game?

  167. Alan (peaks and valleys) April 5th, 2010 at 10:03 am

    There will be no panic buttons pushed by this Yankee team. It was just one game that could have been won but allowed to slip away and similar games like it will be seem at various points of the next 161 games some of which will be victories.
    Many games will be played to allow panic stricken fans to see the 1st game of the season forgotten.
    Good teams know how to put bad games behind them.

  168. Joekuh - 0-1, 161 to go! April 5th, 2010 at 10:06 am

    I will say this about the ESPN broadcast: Orel Herchiser had some really great pitching points. And also in fairness, no one wants to watch a 10-2 beatdown, other than the fans of the winning team. It’s more exciting for most involved when the game goes back and forth like that.
    One more thing: I like the ignore idea. Yahoo comments has a feature where certain comments aren’t seen after they have a certain ratio of negative ratings. Is there a way that can be done here? The site gets its hits, the blog would be self-policed. Win-win!!

    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.

Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard.
