Career vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 10:05 p.m./YES Network

UMPIRES: HP Tim Tschida, 1B Bob Davidson, 2B Alfonso Marquez, 3B Tim Timmons

WEATHER: What can I say? It’s beautiful here. Sunny blue sky, temperature in the 60s. Back in Scranton, my friend Laura is terribly upset with me that I didn’t go to the beach today. Seriously. She yelled at me via text message.

GOOD HITTIN’: Derek Jeter has owned Ervin Santana. Through 27 at-bats, Jeter has a .444 average with a .516 on-base percentage and an .815 slugging. He’s homered three times off the Angels starter.

BACK AGAIN: When Marcus Thames homered yesterday, it was his first of the season and his second as a Yankee. he also homered for New York on June 10, 2002, a span of seven years, 316 days between Yankees homers. It’s the longest such stretch since Jack Quinn homered on September 11, 1911 and again on May 15, 1920.

MILESTONES IN REACH: Derek Jeter needs two doubles to tie Don Mattingly for third place on the Yankees all-time doubles list… Jorge Posada needs four home runs to reach 250 for his career. That would move him into a tie with Graig Nettles for the seventh most in Yankees history… Mariano Rivera needs two strikeouts to tie Roger Clemens for 10th place on the Yankees all-time strikeouts list… Alex Rodriguez needs one home run to tie Frank Robinson for the seventh most home runs ever hit in baseball.

UPDATE, 10:15 p.m.: Mark Teixeira shatters a bat and sends the ball flying toward Mick Kelleher, all in one swing. Then he flies out.

UPDATE, 10:23 p.m.: I’m not sure Erick Aybar understands the rules of baseball. Burnett wasn’t close to beginning his delivery and Aybar was already trying to steal second. That’s an easy out.

UPDATE, 10:31 p.m.: Not sure what the right play would have been at first. There was no one on the bag when Teixeira got the ball, but he clearly didn’t have time to run over there himself. Angels lead it 1-0.

UPDATE, 10:57 p.m.: Back to back doubles from Gardner and Jeter have tied the game. Both went to the opposite field.

UPDATE, 11:01 p.m.: Nick Johnson’s struggles continue, meanwhile the fans here in Anaheim really don’t like Mark Teixeira.

UPDATE, 11:06 p.m.: Good gracious! That’s a whole lot of Mark Teixeira going right through Bobby Wilson. Mike Napoli is in the game. Wilson seemed to have hurt his ankle, though it was clearly a clean play by Teixeira. Yankees up 3-1. Yowza.

UPDATE, 11:15 p.m.: All sorts of collisions for Teixeira tonight. Rodriguez was given an error on that play, allowing the runner to advance from second to third.

UPDATE, 11:19 p.m.: This just feels like one of those games. We might have a wild one here tonight. It’s now 3-3 in the bottom of the third.

UPDATE, 11:24 p.m.: Wilson is heading to a hospital for a CT scan and x-rays. So far, the Angels are only saying he has a concussion and a left ankle injury. Tonight was the poor guy’s first career start.

UPDATE, 11:28 p.m.: The Angels had a 4-3 lead briefly, then Nick Swisher went deep to center to tie it up again. Like I said a few minutes ago, this feels like a wild one.

UPDATE, 11:31 p.m.: Back to back singles by Jeter and (no kidding) Johnson have brought Teixeira to the plate. Remember when I said this crowd really doesn’t like him? Well now this crowd really, really doesn’t like him.

UPDATE, 11:34 p.m.: Ladies and gentlemen, the comic gold of Sweeny Murti.

UPDATE, 11:38 p.m.: Aceves is up in the Yankees bullpen. Just a matter of time.

UPDATE, 12:05 a.m.: Home plate in Anaheim is the most dangerous place in baseball tonight.

UPDATE, 12:06 a.m.: Oh boy. Not a good one for Gardner.

Yankees Angels Baseball

UPDATE, 12:11 a.m.: Associated Press picture of the moment before the big home plate collision.

UPDATE, 12:18 a.m.: Now Boone Logan is warming for the Yankees. It’s fairly shocking that Burnett has lasted this long.

UPDATE, 12:37 a.m.: Seriously, three innings ago, who would have believed me if I wrote that A.J. Burnett would still be in the game in the seventh inning?

UPDATE, 12:44 a.m.: Here comes Robertson. Great job by Burnett to get his night turned around. Meanwhile, I don’t know how anyone can resist the Rally Monkey. He cracks me up.

UPDATE, 12:45 a.m.: Pretty big fist pump from Posada after throwing out Abreu trying to steal second. That’s a big out with the heart of the order at the plate.

UPDATE, 1:08 a.m.: Two-run  homer of Joba Chamberlain. That’s not going to help matters. It’s now 6-4 Angels in the eighth.

    Chad you can add this to the milestones.

    A-Rod needs 2 stolen bases to become 7th 300/300 guy in MLB history. Ba. Bonds, W. Mays, A. Dawson, Bo. Bonds, R. Sanders and S. Finley.

  2. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Santana pitched great last time out, but it sure would be nice to see the bats break out again (and for AJ to pitch well).

  3. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    GB7, do you remember which one of Jack Quinn’s homers went farther?

  4. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 23rd, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    Betsy,

    Don’t know if you saw this in the last thread, but to clarify what I said after any game that the Yanks are on FOX or ESPN, YES will now do a post game. Since the Yanks are on FOX tomorrow, it will be the first time YES will do a post game.

  5. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    Bodhi

    Dont worry. I wont tell you. It’s saddening.

    What did Jay McKee do?

  6. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    alternate joke:

    And Angel Berroa was on base both times!

    /PeteAbe’d

  7. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 23rd, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    CR9,

    What did Jay McKee do?

    With Leopold out, Jay McKee is a pestilence on my blue line once more.

    What did Jay McKee do?

    Jay McKee failed to do anything but be himself – the one thing I would wish to see him fail at.

  8. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Fran, thanks! I’m glad they’re doing that….I check the YES website everyday for various things, but I never noticed that.

  9. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Trenton has just about put Portland away. a 3 run homer by laird should have ended their hopes. 9-3 trenton

  10. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    Bottom of the 8th inning 6-3 Scranton

    Huffman strikes out

    corona flies out

    Russo HBP

    Curtis single to left (he’s 4-5 with 2 doubles and 3 RBi

    Nunez strikes out

    6-3 going to top of the 9th inning

  11. Giuseppe Franco April 23rd, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    Ewww, Colt McCoy drafted by the Browns.

    That’s where talented quarterbacks go to die. They haven’t had a decent QB since Kosar.

  12. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    Bodhi

    Is Leopold out for long?

    ___

    Nice to see the referees not get involved in the Heat-Celtics game down the stretch and hand cheap foul calls to the home team to help decide the game, as they did against the Lakers last game. *sarcasm*

  13. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 23rd, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    Betsy,

    You’re welcome. It was actually in Bob Lorenz’s blog.

  14. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    Chicago is wear QB’s go to die, lol…………the Bears haven’t had a decent QB since McMahon (Cutler has to improve before I count him)

  15. Carl April 23rd, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    Lets go Yankees!!!

  16. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    Oh, I don’t read his blog; I read Kim’s, though……..

  17. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    Betsy

    Are you a Bears fan?

  18. LGY April 23rd, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    So, I see Jeter, Tex, and CC made some comments about Braden.

    We should fully expect a column from Feisand and Sam about how they should have taken the high road.

    Right? Right…..?

    I think I will be waiting for that column for a long time.

  19. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Jeter’s comment about Braden’s feeling about his mound (…) was great.

  20. Carl April 23rd, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    wow you have to love the umps

  21. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    Chance to have bases loaded with nobody out, down 1 run for the fighting Orioles, and the 2nd base umpire cheated the guy and called him out.

    Umpires doing their duty once again.

    And it wasnt even close.

  22. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    CR, yes I am – I love Da Bears. Unfortunately, they are just not very good.

  23. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    Feinsand will take the high road and not say anything.

  24. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    What a sham umpires/referees are!

    It never grows old.

  25. Bryan April 23rd, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    Another blown call by blind umps in the Sux game… Scutaro was 5 feet in the air when he caught the ball and somehow the ump the guy out at 2nd

  26. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    Here’s the game day box score from scranton. 6-3 scranton

  27. Giuseppe Franco April 23rd, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    Betsy,

    Yeah, the Bears haven’t exactly had a lot of success there either in the last 20 years.

    I live in the Chicagoland area so I grew up watching the Bears every Sunday.

    That was long before DirecTV and the Sunday Ticket.

    I’m a Dolphins fan, myself. Dan Marino was my hero.

  28. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    Betsy

    I was a Bears fan one game, a particularly important game in 1985!!!

    They’ll always hold a soft spot in my heart, as will Favre and the Packers.

    Cutler should improve. I hope they get better for you :)

  29. jz166 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    Yanks will drop the series to LAA.
    Hopefully I am wrong

  30. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    Trenton beats Portland, Mitchell the winner. 9-1.

    http://web.minorleaguebaseball.....x_treaax_1

  31. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    YES! Tie game!

    Great Fight Orioles!

    With the umpire cheating you, you still managed to start this ballgame over!

  32. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    CR, I hope so – Chicago is a great town and they’re desperate for another Super Bowl victory. Thanks!

  33. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    “I was a Bears fan one game, a particularly important game in 1985!!!”

    When they beat the Giants? Seriously?

  34. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 23rd, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    CR9,

    God willing, he’ll play in the next round. He’s been out with a concussion and it’s not the first of his career, so they’re being cautious.

    Lovejoy is up from Wilkes-Barre, but McKee, though awful, plays because he brings “veteran experience.”

    He’s very experienced at getting beat to the outside and behind the net.

  35. Bronx Jeers April 23rd, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    Additional milestone:

    ARod needs to steal 2 signs to become the 3rd most hated player in history.

  36. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    Giuseppe

    Dolphins are a very respectable team. I think they have a good shot!

    Dan Marino, aside from being a legend, is one of the all time classiest NFL guys!

    I know some people didnt like him, but IMO, a true class act!

  37. kav April 23rd, 2010 at 10:07 pm

  44. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    When Rich Eisen was still at espn, he did a “Blair Witch Project” spoof called the “Which Bear Project” in which he went on a fruitless seach for a Bear Quarterback… it was both hilarious and horrific… I recommend it if it can be found.

  45. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    Rich in NJ

    LOL

    I thought I was being obvious, especially with the Packers thrown in there.

    The Super Bowl where they completely annihilated the Patriots!!!!!!!

    Gotta love a manager who’d rather go with veteran experience, no matter how poor it is. But I think Bylsma is a good coach, nonetheless.

  56. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Gardner’s speed + google maps = an out :(

  57. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Burnett’s not sharp, yet.

  58. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 23rd, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Defense!!!!!!!

  59. Carl April 23rd, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    great defense early on

  60. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2010 at 10:19 pm

  61. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Bronx Born –

    That’s an incredible story. Thank heavens Kennedy and the other passengers didn’t panic.

  62. jz166 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    That double was catchable

  63. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    matsui..please dont take him deep.

  64. jz166 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    3 run HR coming

  65. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    That ball has to be caught.

    It’s why the Gardner is an elite fielder crowd is off.

    He gets bad reads on a lot of balls.

    Now Swisher misses a ball he should have caught.

    AJ should be out of the inning with better OF D.

  66. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    It looked like Abreu slowed up to see if Gardner was going to hit the wall.

  67. Billy April 23rd, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Wow Yankees are struggling for sure. It looks like Aroid was banging Swisher for to long last night. I wonder when they’re going to come out of the closet?

  68. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Burnett’s pitches are moving all over. He’s going to be a really tough catch tonight.

  69. LGY April 23rd, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    What was Aybar thinking there not sliding? He may have been safe if he slid because the throw was a little high and to the left.

    Gardenheire and Scoscia are always praised as stressing the fundamentals. But, there ballplayers sure make a lot of mistakes on the base paths.

  70. RalphieD (OPPC) April 23rd, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    how does gardner have to catch that? from what i could see on replay he took as direct a route as possible on full speed…i think positioning was the problem

  71. SAS April 23rd, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    Nick in SF…how are you watching this?

  72. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    Thanks hitdedki

  73. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    Nice catch by Jeter, there. Too bad he couldn’t double anyone off.

  74. Michelle April 23rd, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    I am glad that the 2 worst hitters in the lineup can’t even catch balls in the outfield. AJ doesn’t look sharp but they definitely haven’t helped him.

  75. Bronx Born April 23rd, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    I know Doreen.. An amazing story

  76. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    Will Ohman, I dont know what he’s doing here.

    The umpires arent even cheating him, and he cant throw a strike.

    Get him out of there.

  77. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 23rd, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    Gotta love a manager who’d rather go with veteran experience, no matter how poor it is. But I think Bylsma is a good coach, nonetheless.
    ====

    Bylsma made the appropriate adjustments after the Game 1 loss. The issue I have is, why they were playing that way in the first place. Overall, he’s a reasonably good coach. No Bob Johnson, however.

  78. Carl April 23rd, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    horrible defense again

  79. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 10:24 pm

  81. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    AJ has to go to the bag. If he does, it’s an out.

    Bad D the entire inning.

  82. Michelle April 23rd, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    What a disaster of an inning…

  83. SAS April 23rd, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    It certainly is an amazing story. Thanks for sharing

  84. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    Odd inning.

  85. jz166 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    AJ is not sharp at all, tough time ahead for yanks tonight

  86. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    “What a disaster of an inning…”

    It’s not a disaster yet.

  87. Azaz April 23rd, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    that lookslike tex exoected aj to be at the bag andwhen he wasnt tex had no idea that cano was there so he decided to take it himself. misscomunication prolly aj’s fault

  88. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 23rd, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    Gardner has trouble reading and getting good jumps, and closing on balls hit behind him.

    It’s not an aberration.

  89. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    All things considered, the inning worked out well.

  90. LGY April 23rd, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    AJ did look pretty slow getting to first there.

    The pitchers probably just get tired of running over there since Tex never throws them the ball. :lol:

  91. Carl April 23rd, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    A-Rod is going deep 3 times tonight. I called it.

  92. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    Coulda been worse.

    Coulda been better, but it coulda been worse.

    that was the highest chopper ive ever seen….on turf that ball would of left the atmosphere

  95. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Good job working out of trouble AJ!

  96. Matt April 23rd, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    2 balls that should have been caught off the bats of Abreu and Hunter, and then a really bad break on the Morales ball. Burnett really did a good job keeping that from getting much worse, hard to fault him on that other than the fact that the balls were hit hard.

  97. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Gotta love the Red Dox trolls in here.

    I guess that’s what happens when your team can’t hold a 3 run lead at home to the worst team in baseball.

  98. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Burnett got out of that about as cheap as you can. walk, double, single, single and only one run. Hopefully, Burnett finds the touch.

  99. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    nice start

    Now Swisher misses a ball he should have caught.

    The Orioles just walked 3 straight batter and the lead run in…with no cheap calls from the umpires, surprisingly, and then Orsillo yells loudly.

    That’s why they are the Orioles.

  110. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    He got the same bad reads on balls in CF.

    He’s not as good a defender as UZR pegs him as being.

    The Yankees should not have trouble with Santana. AJ just has to keep it close is his command continues to be off like it was in the 1st.

  115. Rob B April 23rd, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Burnett’s worst innings so far this year have been the 1st and 3rd. Small sample size, but I say if he can get through the 3rd without too much more damage, we’ll be just fine.

  116. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    “He’s not as good a defender as UZR pegs him as being.”

    Then, he’s wrong.

    An elite defender catches Abreu’s ball. It wasn’t a tough play if he takes the proper route to the ball.

    For some reason, his first step is always in to balls.

    He did the same thing playing CF.

    Hard to understand why he does it.

    Nice effort by Markakis to try and turn a single into a double….and the Red Sox just got Hall, in what, his 3rd game in LF in Fenway, play the ball perfectly and a perfect strike to 2nd base to nail Markakis.

    No makeup cheap calls going in the Orioles favor. And Orsillo has practically lost his voice, like this one game means anything.

  123. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    One, I didn’t see that problem when he’s in CF.

    Two, he only missed that ball because he’s short.

  130. RalphieD (OPPC) April 23rd, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    ive seen gardner take bad routes and that play sure didnt look like a bad route…it looked like he was playing too far near the line (positioning problem, coaches usually handle that), sprinted all out and full body dove….sure didnt look like a bad route to me

    Abreu absolutely tagged that ball, and Burnett walked the first batter without coming close. Let’s leave Gardner alone and notice that Burnett is getting hit pretty hard here…..great play by Grandy.

  144. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    He missed the ball because he took a bad route to it. His height had nothing to do with it.

    His height came into play because his speed couldn’t make up for the bad route he took to the ball.

    If you didn’t see him take bad routes in CF last year, you probably didn’t see a lot of games. Like Game 6 of the WS for example.

    He’s not as good defensively as folks try to sell.

  149. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    There are very few elite hitters in all of baseball. That’s an extremely high bar.

    Similarly there are very few elite defenders. It’s just an extremely high bar to set. Carl Crawford is an elite defender. Troy Tulowitski is an elite defensive SS. Franklin Guittierez is probably an elite defender but even with him he probably hasn’t played long enough to be certain.

    Brett Gardner simply doesn’t have the track record to date to say that he is an elite defender.

    I just don’t get why people keep trying to project these strange interpretations onto Gardner that aren’t supported by his skill set, scouting reports, data or track record.

    Brett Gardner is better than Jason Bay. The Yanks should move Curtis Granderson off of CF for Brett Gardner. It’s just so strange.

    Especially when he’s moving to a position he hasn’t played extensively yet.

    He’s a player who has a single elite skill – speed – that appears to make him an extremely effective (though still overly cautious) base runner and gives him terrific range in the outfield. The overall quality of his defense is still to be determined given how few major league chances he’s ever handled.

    Overinflating his value just makes him something of an unnecessary source of contention.

  150. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    Doesn’t matter how hard balls are hit if your defense makes the plays they are suppose to make.

  181. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    Regardless of how well developed the metric is trying to evaluate defense “objectively” via data is going to be problematic if people try to start calling players who have played around 160 games in the big leagues many of which he appeared in as a defensive replacement.

    It’s particularly problematic for outfielder because they handle so few chances per game.

    Finally, qualitative data is always going to be central to the evaluation of the game – especially defensively.

    Regardless, until there is a better way to evaluate defense it is very difficult to call a player with as little experience as gardner has “elite.”

    Good lord, Johnson is awful right now. Anything inside, and he lets it go, and it’s ALWAYS A STRIKE. That was twice in a row. .400 OBP or now, how long is he going to last in the 2-hole if he keeps looking at those pitches?

    Doesnt help a slump any when an umpire cheats you on at least one pitch, probably 2.

    Maybe it should start with the GM.

    “Regardless, until there is a better way to evaluate defense it is very difficult to call a player with as little experience as gardner has “elite.””

    Or maybe the GM is right.

  197. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    Another two seamer taken on the inner half for strike 3.

    He has yet to make an adjustment on that pitch.

    That’s why he can’t hit right now.

    Strikes out looking more than any Yankee since Raul Mondesi.

    If he won’t make the adjustment, they are going to have to move him down in the order.

  198. Tommy April 23rd, 2010 at 10:58 pm

  201. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Nick Johnson has a significant problem right now. It is very clear the scouting report on him says the same thing and word has spread across the league.

    Every team continues to pitch him the exact same way and he simply cannot or will not adjust.

    It’s the same pitch on the inside corner over and over and over.

    Nick is going to need to hit his way out of this. Right now his strike zone command is actually not particularly good because he’s not efficiently reading that pitch inside.

    Pitchers are not going to bail him out.

  227. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    Ouch Teix was mad…

  228. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    pretty close to a dirty play from tex

  229. Patrick April 23rd, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    That was completely unnecessary. Ridiculous move by Tex

  230. The Captains Blog April 23rd, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    There was no need for Tex to go in that hard. I really hope he is ok.

  231. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    I wonder if Scioscia is angry. I bet he is.

    That was a clean play!

    He got what was coming to him. BOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

  232. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    Who is that guy in the Angels dugout wearing the red pajamas?

  233. Dan in Philly April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    that did not look good… not really a great move by Tex there

  234. RalphieD (OPPC) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    first ML start*

  235. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    At first I thought that was unneccessary…

    but Tex started his slide before the ball bounced away. He didn’t know that the catcher wouldn’t have the ball.

    The catcher came back and got drilled. Hit him high, but it wasn’t really poor sportsmanship.

  236. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    That play is a lot closer if the throw doesn’t hit the corner of the plate.

  237. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    he could have slid and been easily safe

  238. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    CR9
    Yep it seems like Tex wanted to send a tex message and he just did. Too bad we couldn’t do that to one of the Tampa players or Phillies players after they attacked our players.

  239. pat April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Alex had nothing to do with that. :wink:

  240. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    “Or maybe the GM is wrong. Watch the games objectively and it’s not logical to call him an elite defender.”

    I respect your opinion. I merely disagree.

    To be fair, elite can reasonably considered to connote a longer body of work, but that doesn’t mean that people can’t fairly believe that Gardner is very good.

  241. Jerkface April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    The Yankees are not playing around. I’m all for that.

  242. timo April 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Reminiscent of Tex totaling Jorge in the high scoring game against the Rangers at the Stadium a few years ago, a game Jorge eventually won with a walkoff homer.

  243. LGY April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    All 3 pitches on NJ were strikes

    http://www.brooksbaseball.net/.....type=3.gif

  244. Jason22 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    There might be a brawl in this game, I understand Tex going in hard, the hit was a little high, but not dirty, just very forceful.

  245. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    I think that’s Tim Cheetah Tschida as the HP ump.

    Why is Scio angry? Teixeira got hit. All’s fair in love and baseball.

  246. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    Hit girl
    Shut your mouth because no one cares what you have to say. What he did was alright.

  247. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    “but Tex started his slide before the ball bounced away. He didn’t know that the catcher wouldn’t have the ball”

    This is the critical point.

  248. Trevor April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    This series will get very interesting….

  249. Patrick April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    If there wasn’t a runner on third Santana would take Posada out right now

  250. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    Jesus…quit whining.

  251. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    So… um, the Mariners don’t hate us yet this season.

    East Coast/West Coast friends, yay.

  252. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    “Tex could have slid in and been safe.”

    ————–

    Tex started his slide before he knew that for sure but in all likelihood yes.

    If the catcher doesn’t drop the ball, he was jumping back into the plate to try and block it.

    Doesn’t look good, but if you freeze the screen just as Tex starts his slide, it doesn’t look quite as bad.

  253. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    Tex doesn’t know the ball is going to take a short hop. He has to make a split second decision to either slide or go in hard. He chose the latter.

  254. XLJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    Awesome play by Teixeira. That is some old school baseball love the hustle.

  255. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    hi jeremy

  256. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    Can you imagine if it were arod that did that??

  257. vito b April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    nice hit by teix, maybe teams will stop hitting him now.

  258. NYY626 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    I’m not loving that move by Tex. Really wasnt necessary in my opinion…

  259. Donnie - Will Meet Dallas Braden Under the O'Neill Banner April 23rd, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    Really hate leaving those two men out there in scoring position, especially on a weak popup behind second. But at least now AJ is pitching with a lead. Maybe he’ll rebound from those less than stellar couple of innings.

  260. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    “Or maybe the GM is wrong. Watch the games objectively and it’s not logical to call him an elite defender. ”

    SJ-

    Or maybe the GM who never says much publicly is making another generic statement for public consumption?

    No. That couldn’t be it.

    Just like when Theo said that UZR was completely wrong about Jacoby Ellsbury’s defense in CF and that Jacoby was in fact a good defensive CF. I’m sure he was being up front about their internal evaluation as they proceeded to sign a 37 year old and displace the 25 year old who has been their “centerfielder of the future” for several years.

    I’m sure Theo was transparently communicating his and the organizations evaluation.

    I just can’t get over how people keep projecting these over wrought sentiments onto a player who wasn’t a particularly good prospect and has a marginal overall set of tools.

  261. I like Inge April 23rd, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    That’s baseball baby!! Nice hard hit by Tex. Good job.

  262. Dark Dante April 23rd, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    Yankee announcers think the play was dirty Chad. The plate was given to Tex and he chose to knock the catcher into the front row. Some speculation that it’s retaliation for Tex being hit.

  263. E-gawa April 23rd, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    People thought that was clean? Really?

  264. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    It’s about time we took out a catcher blocking home plate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thems the breaks!!!

    I just hope Varitek gets it next!!!!!!

    BOOOM!!!

  265. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    That looked like walter Payton hitting a linebacker.

  266. XLJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    Wilson was going back to plate trying to tag Teixeira it was a clean play.

  267. Matt April 23rd, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    The announcers must not have watched their own replay, because if you look at the view from behind home plate, it is very obvious that if the catcher came up with the throw cleanly, it would have been incredibly close at the plate, and Teixeira may have in fact been out if he reached back quickly enough. With how the throw came in on a weird bounce like that, it was likely that the catcher would not have great control of the ball, and the perfect slide is to run him over and jar it loose.

    Of course, he can’t be too happy about getting drilled either. You can’t keep throwing inside on guys unless you are sure you can avoid hitting him, and Teixeira has been falling victim to this a lot lately.

  268. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    it’s time to start teaching these other teams to respect the Yankees. I’m tired of them hitting Yankee players and hearing losers like Dallas complain about yankee players.

  269. E-gawa April 23rd, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    If someone ran over Posada or Cervelli like that, I’d be ticked. That was not a clean play. He was gunning for him.

  270. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    “Tex doesn’t know the ball is going to take a short hop. He has to make a split second decision to either slide or go in hard. He chose the latter.”

    ————-

    I agree. He did slide a bit high, but the catcher actually initiated the contact.

    Tex started his slide and the catcher jumped back into him trying to block the plate.

    I’m sure the Angels and those in the media who make their $$ criticizing the Yankees won’t see it that way, of course :)

  271. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    “Who is that guy in the Angels dugout wearing the red pajamas?”

    I have no idea, but I do believe the catcher could use a snuggie…

  272. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    I cant believe people are acting like Teixeira did something wrong.

    The rules state that you can’t block home plate. Yet, they are allowed to block home plate, with catcher’s gear on.

    You’re right, it was a poor decision that Teixeira ran him over, because Teixeira doesnt have the catcher’s gear on.

    It’s about time!

  273. Tom in N.J. April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    Giants need a MLB-should they sign Teix?

  274. Donnie - Will Meet Dallas Braden Under the O'Neill Banner April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    The irony of someone named “Hit Girl”, a character from one of the most violent movies in the last 5 years or so, complaining about a play being too rough, is not lost on me.

  275. I like Inge April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    Hell yeah that play was clean. Catcher is in the way, he’s in the way.

  276. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    “Yankee announcers think the play was dirty Chad. The plate was given to Tex and he chose to knock the catcher into the front row. Some speculation that it’s retaliation for Tex being hit.”

    He chose to hit Teix instead of walking him :evil:

  277. E-gawa April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    Whatever though, as long as it doesn’t cost us in the future.

  278. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    and AJ being AJ…lol

  279. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    it’s the homgrown angle. People want to see a homegrown guy do well and overstate his skills.

    AJ choking away the lead bigtime

    all Tex did was wake up the Angels and they will kick NY’s butt now

    Tex doesn’t know the ball is going to take a short hop. He has to make a split second decision to either slide or go in hard. He chose the latter.

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

    It was a play just about that one that cost Roger Maris all of his power. Instead of going through the catcher and laying him out, he tried to slide and got his hand caught in the catcher’s shin guards and broke 4 bones in his hand.

  286. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    And there’s Torii Hunter with an unnecessary hit.

    What a piece of carcillo.

  287. ditherkey7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    Are you kidding me… catcher wasn’t blocking the plate at all. that was some dirty bush league stuff right there. Unfortunate but Tex is going to get thrown at again and deserves it

  288. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    This is getting interesting.

  289. Matt April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    If you want to talk about a dirty play, Hunter purposely shoving Teixeira and allowing Abreu to advance when he would have had to stay put otherwise is pretty low.

  290. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    Groundzilla

  291. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    AJ is a number two starter, lol?

  292. XLJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    Wow that was a David Wright type throw from A-Rod.

  293. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    AJ so far isn’t doing so well.

    Oh,man, they just got Matsui. When did he start running again?

  294. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    Tori had a sissy tackle there.

  295. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    How did Matsui, one of the finest gentlemen in this world, end up on one of the least classy teams in baseball?

    I feel bad for Matsui, that he can no longer be surrounded with the class of the NY Yankees.

    gtfo

    He was blocking the plate and got rocked.

  297. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    I’ll exchange a run for 2 outs right there.

    Tex must be built like a tank. Torii Hunter looked like he was seeing stars after what seemed like a light bump.

  298. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    “If you want to talk about a dirty play, Hunter purposely shoving Teixeira and allowing Abreu to advance when he would have had to stay put otherwise is pretty low.”

    I actually thought that could have been called interference.

    ===

    Yup, that’s a Cashman calculated statement. We went around the block on this when he said it.

    Some thought it was fanciful that Cashman would ever “lie” about such a thing.

    What’s fanciful is that he could actually believe it.

  300. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    Alex made a great play but thought it was the Torii hunter from 5 years ago running.

    AJ’s fastball command isn’t there tonight. He’s done a good job in his prior starts this season of limiting damage and he needs to do that tonight given the stuff he has.

    That error on Alex is another example of how limited a statistic errors are. With most third baseman they don’t stop that ball and it’s a double. Abreu is on third base regardless.

    But Alex makes a great play and tries to get the out and it pops up a an error.

  301. Wobatus April 23rd, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    It wasn’t a clean play by Tex. He went out of his way to blast the kid. If you think otherwise it is kinda blind homerism.

  302. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    CR9
    I know when will some people stop apologizing. The Yankees have been attacked over and over again by Boston, Philly, Anaheim, and Tampa. It’s time to play hard ball no more apologizing

  303. Trevor April 23rd, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    Those who are saying it wasn’t a good play, you saw it replayed a number of times now. Teixeira didn’t have that luxury. He had to make a quick decision. I thought nothing wrong of it. But I think the Angels think otherwise.

  304. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    AJ sucks

  305. Jerkface April 23rd, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    Posada wusses out on blocking the plate, probably smart I guess?

  306. Carl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    Jesus come on AJ

    Some thought it was fanciful that Cashman would ever “lie” about such a thing.

    What’s fanciful is that he could actually believe it.”

    Cash even went so far as to cite the Yankees’ own defensive metrics in support of the proposition.

    Of course, he could believe it.

  308. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    AJ isn’t concentrating

  309. Patrick April 23rd, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    Yeah Burnett looks like utter hell tonight. The Angels are hammering the ball off him

  310. MT. April 23rd, 2010 at 11:14 pm

  311. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    I’m not being a homer I just think it’s fair. You play hard that’s how you play the game.

  312. Donnie - Will Meet Dallas Braden Under the O'Neill Banner April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    Aaaaaand that’s why you can’t leave those two men in scoring position last inning.

  313. pat April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    No one is missing bats tonight and lots of adrenaline flowing.

    Dangerous combination.

  314. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    can’t get the big out

  315. Gardner in CF April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    As a catcher I’m not too happy about that hit. Wilson gave him the plate and was vulnerable fielding the throw.

  316. Carlo April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    AJ has nothing tonight. We’re gonna need to hang 8 on them if we want to win this game.This has 4.2, 9 hits 7 runs written all over it for Burnett.

  317. Dan in Philly April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    I was scared for Posada’s life on that throw home by Cano… glad it wasn’t close

  318. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    Darn!

    I think I’m going to bed. I have a long weekend ahead and this game is gonna be a killer.

  319. MT. April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    ^ came home

  320. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    It rightfully should have been called interference.

    Not a good job by AJ there. Good job by Jorge though, staying as far away from trouble as possible.

  321. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    wow, what a starting staff! lol

  322. XLJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    Burnett has been getting hit hard the entire game people need to stop blaming the defenders.

  323. LGY April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    “Aaaaaand that’s why you can’t leave those two men in scoring position last inning.”

    Because it is the bottom of the 9th inning and the Yankees have no more time to score?

  324. SAS April 23rd, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    MLB just called it a dirty play because Angels catching staff is depleted

  325. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    Not a good inning for AJ.

    LOL at the Red Six trolls in here whining about Tex.

  326. Patrick April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    Posada wusses out on blocking the plate, probably smart I guess?

    I can’t remember the last time Posada blocked a plate

  327. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    AJ was not a good signing

  328. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    AJ will settle down.

  329. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

  330. Michelle April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    This is going to be one of those games. It didn’t matter if it was close at the plate or not there is no way Posada is blocking the plate in this series. That everyone knows…

  331. YBA April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    That was definitely a dirty hit by Teixeira. He’s not a dirty player, so I am surprised he let his emotions get the best of him. Hopefully, the Angels don’t get out of hand in their retaliation.

  332. SAS April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    ugh

  334. spark April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    This is one of those “refuse to win” games for AJ. Whatever he needs to do to lose he’s going to do it.

  335. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    I had a feeling this game would be a high scoring game. AJ doesn’t have great command. Time to bring in Aceves.

  336. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    Oh, man – what is AJ throwing tonight. They’ve driven the ball all night.

  337. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    But you know what, I want this type of game. We’ve been dominating for awhile…now lets see some competition.

    AJ, sure isn’t concentrating out there.

  338. Carlo April 23rd, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    Get Mitre up now if u want to have any chance to win tonight. Two run dong coming here.

  339. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    AJ has given up

  340. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:17 pm

  341. Jerkface April 23rd, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    AJ, sure isn’t concentrating out there.

    You do not know this, unless bad results = lack of concentration.

  342. Michelle April 23rd, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    AJ’s has no control with his fastball. Aceves and Mitre will be in this game shortly.

  343. RalphieD (OPPC) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    well this is one of burnett’s throw away games…the key is to not let this 4 turn into 8…yanks are plenty in this game and it would be nice to keep in close

  344. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    Swisher takes another bad route on that ball.

    LF and RF D has been awful tonight.

    Time to get AJ out of there and go to Ace. AJ has nothing tonight.

  345. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    The thing is if you don’t have fastball command why would you continue to go with the fastball. It’s drifting right over the plate when it’s in the zone.

  346. Donnie - Will Meet Dallas Braden Under the O'Neill Banner April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    ““Aaaaaand that’s why you can’t leave those two men in scoring position last inning.”

    Because it is the bottom of the 9th inning and the Yankees have no more time to score?”

    Didn’t say that. But when you have a chance to go up 5-1, especially when AJ looks absolutely lost out there, you turn around, and you’re down 4-3. Playing with a lead is always easier than playing catch-up. I don’t think this game is over by a long shot, but I’d certainly rather have a 5-4 lead right now.

  347. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    is there any pitcher in baseball who does less with more natural ability than Burnett?

  348. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    In the past AJ’s big problem has been variable command of his curveball.

    Since he’s come to the yanks – that’s not been what the problems have stemmed from. AJ’s fastball command was horribly inconsistent last year.

    And that’s why he has these games where things blow up so quickly. It’s a guy who is out there with nothing and that kills him because he has no plan B.

  349. Patrick April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    This is one of those games where A.J. being a 2-pitch pitcher really hurts him. He has no control of either the curve or the fastball. If he had a third pitch he could maybe battle through it like we’ve seen guys like Pettitte do. Right now Burnett has nothing

  350. The Other Phil (Don't feed the trolls) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    Aaaand the bad AJ has shown up this inning… Come on buddy, get out of it. No way Yanks only score 3 this game.

    That ball was hammered I have no idea what you are talking about right now. Doesn’t matter who’s out there, Swisher, whoever. NObody gets to that ball

  353. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Nice job limiting the damage.

  354. Jerkface April 23rd, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    AJ’s wildness hurt him, as the ump didnt give him 2 good pitches that AB.

  355. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    Ok, lets have some fun…Swisher/Al/Teix/Granderson/Gardenhoser all have football backgrounds.

  356. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    Patrick

    I’m no expert on OF routes, but I think SJ is right. When the ball dropped, it was directly behind Swish, by like 5 feet.

    Maybe if he takes a better route on that Izturis one, it might have been caught.

  357. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    “Nice job limiting the damage.”

    yeah, he only gave up 2 hits with 2 outs scoring 2 runs.

    really nice job limiting the damage, lol!

  358. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    Here’s a news flash. Boston is still 5 games out of first after 3 weeks.

    “Yup, that’s a Cashman calculated statement. We went around the block on this when he said it.

    Some thought it was fanciful that Cashman would ever “lie” about such a thing.

    What’s fanciful is that he could actually believe it.”

    Cash even went so far as to cite the Yankees’ own defensive metrics in support of the proposition.

    Of course, he could believe it.
    =====

    Rich in NJ,

    This debate has become a cliche.

    I’ve seen this guy for two years live.

    He is not a good instinctive OF. He has a plus-plus tool – tremendous speed. The things he is wanting in are not subtle, they’re not something a person sitting at a game who is grounded in what good OF defense is can miss, or needs to decipher. If you don’t see it – well, then…you don’t see it.

    I’m just grateful the big bat is making up for the iffy glove :).

  360. The Other Phil (Don't feed the trolls) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    Did I mention that I hate the Angels as much as the Sawx? Okay good.

  361. Hit Girl April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    “AJ’s wildness hurt him, as the ump didnt give him 2 good pitches that AB.”

    bwahahaha, yeah it was the umps fault.

    it’s the umps fault every other game since he can’t string good outings together.

  362. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    The ball wasn’t hammered. It fell short of the warning track by at least two feet.

    Look where the ball fell and Nick’s proximity to it.

    Better route/better jump and he makes that catch.

  363. Carlo April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    Donnie – the problem with ur 5-1 comments is that it was 1-1 and we got two two out hits in a row to make it 3-1. How many two out hits in a row with RISP really expect, reasonably?

  364. Michelle April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    Tex better watch out in this series. You know revenge is coming. His emotions really got the best of him in that play at the plate.

  365. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    I don’t understand statements like “that’s why you can’t leave men in scoring position.” Of course you don’t want to do that. No one sets out to do that. I’m sure the hitter didn’t say, well, we’ve got two runs, it’s time to end this inning.

    Just missed, Grandy.

    Anyway…

  366. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    Why are you even here. No one cares about you or your opinions. Just leave !

  367. spark April 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    That was not a dirty hit by Tex. On replay it looks like he deliberately took a shot at the catcher but in that situation, as a runner, you have to anticipate the catcher blocking the plate and you have to brace for contact. In contact plays, you want to give the contact, not receive. Especially since the catcher is wearing protective gear. The runner is not. Tex realized the ball was going to beat him, so he figured his only shot to score would be to dislodge the ball from the catcher’s glove. As a runner, you can’t expect the catcher to not catch the ball.

  390. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    This is going to be one of those games. Strap in for the fireworks.

    Hopefully AJ can figure out that he is not going to need to be great. They will win the game as long as he’s not awful.

    The angels pen is terrible and Santana is making mistake after mistake himself.

    But that’s the challenge for AJ – can he not be awful and just figure out how to be mediocre on a night where he doesn’t have anything.

    He should scrap the 4 seam fastball and just pound the zone with his two seamer. It’s a good pitch if he can keep it down. Going to the change up to get ground balls would help as well.

  391. Jeremy April 23rd, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    People no more apologies. Tex did it and it was a fair play. Playing hard and sending a message is alright especially when they continue to disrespect the Yankees.

    That was a solid sequence to get Tex. Three straight breaking balls inside, and then the fastball away. Something tells me that those two half-swings, Tex was looking for the fastball, and then on the last pitch, was amped up for something else. Nice job of pitching by Santana.

    Ok, so AJ is having a bad game – it happens. His bad games get analyzed to death, more than any pitcher I’ve seen in ages. Has he thrown any change ups?

    No excuse for playing so poorly defensively except that maybe the team is going into something of a slump?

    I’m sure Nick Johnson is trying; I cant’ believe he refuses to adjust. If that’s the case, how has he made such a nice career for himself?

    Sucks that the Sox won………

  443. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    That was a strike on Tex.

    He was guessing fastball in, and didn’t protect the plate.

    Girardi is staying too long with AJ. He should be out of this game already. He’s got a rested bullpen.

  444. carlo April 23rd, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    Ok Joe, time to warm up Mitre. The team that loses this game is the one who leaves the starter in the longest. Both of these guys are horrific implosions just waiting to happen quickly. Don’t sit on this Joe.

  445. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    Everyone in the bullpen has had at least one day’s rest. All except Joba and Mo haven’t pitched in 3 days. If Burnett can get through 5 innings, Girardi should take it and run with it. Ace, Robertson, Marte, Joba, Rivera can manage 4-5 innings between them.

    The Angels are the best changeup hitting team in baseball.

    It’s the last team you throw changeups to unless it’s your best pitch.

  490. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:40 pm

    We’ve got Tex for another 7 years; he’s a terrific player, but it’s a problem that he swoons for a full month of the year, each year. Sometimes other players will be able to pick him up, but they can’t do it all the time.

  491. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:40 pm

    Mitre’s not going to face the Angels in any game that’s this close this early.

  492. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:40 pm

    AJ did make adjustments that inning. He threw a lot of two seam fastballs there. More two seamers than four seamers.

    And he generated two ground ball outs. Hunter hit the ball very hard but that’s the good part about generating ground balls – there’s always a chance they’re hit right at someone and there’s only so much damage they can inflict.

    That was an inning he can build on. Keep throwing those two seamers and don’t try to be too fine.

I was going to say that I had to admit I was wrong about him using the change, but that goes right out the window. He’ll just have to make do using 2 pitches………unless he develops a cutter or slider in the next inning or so, lol.

  498. Carlo April 23rd, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    Abreu is a bad luck charm. The Phillies got rid of him and became the class of the NL league. The Yankees let him go and won the WS. When the Angels got him, they couldn’t beat the Yankees in the playoffs anymore. Very good player, but I don’t think any of his former teams regret letting him go.

    The Rays sent out Price to attack Tex and Tampa pitchers in that last series didn’t give Tex a pitch to hit at all so he wouldn’t have a chance to beat out Carlos Pena in homerun totals in the AL. It was so pathetic and petty.

    I didnt know they attacked Teixeira.

    I have no problem with them not allowing Teixeira to beat out Pena. They weren’t in the playoffs anyway, so why not help a teammate.

  514. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    Normally throwing change ups to the angels isn’t a great idea but if you can’t throw your four seam fastball and you can’t command your curve you need to try something. That’s the purpose of a plan B. It’s not optimal but you do something to see if you can keep your team in the game. I wouldn’t think the Angels would be anticipating change ups from AJ.

    Hopefully he gets the command of his curve back and can keep his two seamer down in the zone.

    But if he’s got no alternative plan he can execute then he needs to be pulled from the game.

  515. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    “I don’t think Hunter tried to tackle Teix.”

  555. The Monarch April 23rd, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    Remember that Tex and Posada had a huge home plate collision a few years ago. Posada wound up winning that game with a walkoff HR, but sat out some games. 2007?

    Lesson learned…stay out of Tex’s way. I don’t see how Tex could have realized that there wasn’t going to be a play, so you can’t call it dirty. But he could have just as easily slid, and probably should have.

  556. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    AJ is really so talented. He can dominate hitters with a two seam fastball – a pitch he doesn’t even use consistently.

    They were roping line drive double after double off of him. He’s adjusted. He’s really working with his sinking fastball and he’s doing a nice job generating ground balls.

    Very nice job by him making this adjustment and limiting damage to prior innings.

  557. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    Patrick

    When the Ray took out Cervelli in ST a couple years ago, there were fans on here defending the Ray, saying it was a clean play.

    I would have argued it was not, as there is no need to run someone over in ST. Also, the Ray ran the risk of injuring himself on the play. Why do that in ST?

    This is the regular season. Teixeira’s hit was a clean hit. The catcher went to block the plate, without the ball, no less. He got laid out. Fair. Clean. Beautiful.

    The resulting injuries were not beautiful, but the hit was a BOOOOM!

  558. The Other Phil (Don't feed the trolls) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    People can say it’s so easy to tell that Tex would have been safe by sliding and whatnot, and it’s probably true. But given that he’s motoring down the line, sees the catcher waiting on the ball and if it’s a clean throw, who knows what the catcher does. Dive for the plate? Dive at Tex? He made a split second decision and unfortunately for the Angels, their guy got hurt.

    It’s baseball not badminton.

  559. Rich in NJ April 23rd, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    “It was on purpose, he started running hard and continued like 8 ft. off the bag bracing for a tackle…if your running through in that moment your not bracing for anything b/c it slows down your run.”

    Teix could not see whether or not the catcher had the ball when he initiated the collision. Context is everything.

    # Brandon’s Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden’s mound) April 23rd, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    It was on purpose, he started running hard and continued like 8 ft. off the bag bracing for a tackle…if your running through in that moment your not bracing for anything b/c it slows down your run.


    I’ll have to watch it again. I thought he slowed down in reasonable time and put his hands out to stop rather than drop his shoulder into it. That would have been the perfect opportunity to retaliate. If someone’s running hard down the line it definitely takes more than 8 feet (or half the distance to the outfield grass) to stop. But that could just be me.

    When the Ray took out Cervelli in ST a couple years ago, there were fans on here defending the Ray, saying it was a clean play.

    I would have argued it was not, as there is no need to run someone over in ST. Also, the Ray ran the risk of injuring himself on the play. Why do that in ST?

    —————-

    I think that’s why most people, including the Yankee players themselves, were so upset about the play. It was Spring Training. There’s no reason to kill a catcher in a game like that. I don’t think anybody ever really felt it was a dirty play other than in the context of when it happened.

    Tex is not a hot head or anything close to a dirty player; I really hope that play at the plate was clean. I like to see the Yankees getting mad, but I feel terrible for that poor catcher.

  602. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:02 am

    That’s a really tough one to stomach. Just awful. A complete zero of an at bat.

    Gardner is trying to bunt a ball that’s high and out of the zone. It’s as if he wasn’t even anticipating that Santana would guess bunt and go high fastball.

    He looked like a pitcher trying to bunt that ball.

  603. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 12:02 am

    # CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    This is the regular season. Teixeira’s hit was a clean hit. The catcher went to block the plate, without the ball, no less. He got laid out. Fair. Clean. Beautiful.

    Wilson gave Teixeira 100% of the plate… and Teixeira got all of Wilson.

  604. Jason22 April 24th, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Brett needs to learn, just because they give you the bunt, sign, does not mean you have to bunt, bad bad job, he needs to keep practicing that.

    you can’t bunt a high fastball.

    come on Derek.

  605. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 12:02 am

    There is a reason the Yankees have to send messages to these teams. Look at how many times Santana has come inside on key Yankees players without any idea of where the ball is going. That is just dangerous.

  606. awaism April 24th, 2010 at 12:02 am

    if we get at least 1 run here…brett gets a pass.

  607. RalphieD (OPPC) April 24th, 2010 at 12:02 am

  614. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 12:04 am

    He doesnt attempt to steal every chance he gets. And he cant bunt.

    I DONT BELIEVE IT. It hit him, and stayed on the IF for an out, no less.

    A line drive up the middle for a base hit too.

    Nick Johnson is due for a hit with RISP.

  615. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:04 am

    It was an out, but, that’s how you answer a message from a pitcher.

    NJ….redeem urself here.

  621. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:04 am

    Jeter smacks the ball through the middle like he’s supposed to.

    That only highlights how costly and poor Gardner’s at bat was.

    If he get’s the bunt down there’s a good chance the yanks score and there’s still 1 out.

  622. Rob B April 24th, 2010 at 12:04 am

    Jeter is so Ganster. Santana goes inside on him, so Jeter sends a message back. ;)

  623. Trevor April 24th, 2010 at 12:04 am

    How does Gardner not know how to bunt? I think that kind of player (slap hitter, light hitter, no power, just runs well) should know how to bunt.

  624. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:05 am

  632. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 12:07 am

    Let’s not get on Gardner. Johnson will pick him up.

  633. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 12:07 am

    Gardner can be fun to watch when he is on, but he is just way too inconsistent to be a major league outfielder.

    He is not a good bunter for someone with his speed and he tends to get under balls as a slap hitter. That is not going to cut it, he’s an automatic out at times batting 9th when he isn’t going well.

    We have someone on the roster who has been an everyday player for his entire career in Randy Winn, who is outstanding defensively, somewhat speedy, and a much better overall hitter than Gardner. Throw out his numbers thus far this year, Girardi hasn’t given him anywhere near consistent playing time.

  634. awaism April 24th, 2010 at 12:08 am

    nick should have taken1 for the team

  635. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 12:08 am

    Another example of the benefit of having guys like Granderson on the roster who have so many tools. The Yankees can take extra bases behind these guys since they can’t risk the runner from 3rd coming in to score. Taking away that force could turn out big depending on how Nick Johnson hits the ball.

  636. The Other Phil (Don't feed the trolls) April 24th, 2010 at 12:08 am

    He has dropped a bunch of solid bunts so far this season. He messed up once. crucify him.

  640. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:08 am

    “Sheesh I thought I read Gardner bunted like 1000 balls a day all winter. Haven’t seen results of it yet.”

    That’s not the primary issue.

    People are going to focus on the lack of his physical skill to bunt the ball. But that’s not the primary issue.

    It wasn’t a physical failure as much as it was a mental one. The primary problem was his decision making.

    Unless you are a fantastic bunter that is just not an easy pitch to bunt. It’s a pitch thrown to induce a pop up.

    National league pitcher know not to offer at that kind of pitch.

    But Gardner decided to try to bunt it. It’s often said the most important thing about bunting the ball is getting the right pitch to bunt.

  641. antisocial scrooge April 24th, 2010 at 12:08 am

    AJ has control problems about 2 out of every 3 starts. That’s just him and it doesn’t matter a bit who catches him. Proving not worth the money in my eyes. Good stuff without enough control. Attitude isn’t the best either. But, he’s OURS !

    Johnson has hit some shots so far this season, but takes too many strikes that he could hammer. I know, his OBP is still good, but too many K’S !

  649. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:09 am

    First of all lets be fair, that bunt was called from the bench, guaranteed. However, he should have pulled the bat back because that was obviously a ball.

    “He has dropped a bunch of solid bunts so far this season. He messed up once. crucify him.”

    He has, but I’ve seen a lot of his attempts end up fouling back to the screen or the dugouts. Not the end of the world with 0 strikes but a few of those were with the defense not playing for the bunt.

  668. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    AJ just has too many bad innings in too many of his starts.

  669. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    Johnson hit the ball hard that at bat. He swings have looked better since the strike out.

    But if you decide to give up an out with a bunt and you don’t move the runners over that makes the rest of the inning a mess.

    Jeter and Johnson both squared the ball up – Jeter especially. Gardner really hurt them.

  670. SJ44 April 24th, 2010 at 12:13 am

    The bunt was the right call. You just don’t bunt a pitch over your head.

    If he doesn’t know that by now, he can’t play everyday. He has to be able to execute a bunt in that situation, given his limited skillsets.

    He killed that inning.

  671. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:13 am

  673. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:14 am

    Well, unfortunately none of these with Gardner come as a surprise. Pat M is at the game, but if he were here, I’m pretty sure I know what he’d say and I agree with him.

  674. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 12:14 am

    NJ has not looked good at the plate as a whole this season. But, when he does hit the ball hard it always seems to find someone.

    His single earlier in the game is one of the very few hard hit balls I can remember falling in for him so far this season.

  675. OKI/DAVE April 24th, 2010 at 12:14 am

    If you are going to bunt, take the first pitch. The Angels already figured he was bunting and threw a high strike. Actually I wouldn’t mind him hitting away, as he’s one tough dude to double up.

  676. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:15 am

    SJ44 will you please lighten up on the Gardner bashing? He’s a good player. Not a great player, a good player. He made a mistake trying to bunt that ball but he’s gotten down other bunts fine this year. One play doesn’t make him a bad player jeez

    146 more games until Crawford? Will that also be 146 more games of you lamenting how bad Brett Gardner supposedly is?

  677. blake April 24th, 2010 at 12:15 am

    Great play by Arod and Tex both there.

    The bunt was absolutely the right call. Have to bunt a strike. #1 rule is you don’t bunt a ball above your hands.

  678. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:15 am

    Since that last bad inning AJ has done exactly what he needed to adjust – he’s throwing two seamer after two seamer and the Angels can’t get any lift on the ball.

    He’s overpowering the Angels basically with one pitch and a few curve balls and four seamers mixed in.

    Great job by Posada as well getting AJ to settle down and make adjustments.

  679. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 12:15 am

    AJ made a nice adjustment.

  680. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 12:16 am

    Maybe those thousdands of pitches he bunted each day this offseason were all strikes.

  681. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:16 am

    what AB did johnson hit the ball hard? was it the foul ball, because he hit a routine grounder to second to end the inning?

  682. awaism April 24th, 2010 at 12:16 am

    boone ? Joe has that much confidence in him – that he is bringing him in- after 1 good game? in a tie game?

  683. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:16 am

    Good job, AJ – he’s kept his team in the game. I wonder if he can go another inning.

  684. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    90 pitches. Does he start the 7th or does Girardi call it a gutty night and send him in for a shower? I bring him back out, batter to batter.

  685. Frank & Beans April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    Girardi needs to separate Tex and Johnson, they need to put granderson second in the order.

  686. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    Angels have tremendous luck and played well against Yanks for a handful of years now.

    Can’t walk them and make mistakes, they take advantage a huge part of the time, unlike the Yanks against them.

  687. Jerkface April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    He has one sac bunt this year and 0 bunt hits

    That doesn’t mean he didn’t lay down some good bunts.

  688. blake April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    Thats something I’ve really noticed in AJ this year thats a change from the past. He is limiting damage and preventing the snowball effect much better to this point in the season. Good sign to see. He’s done it several times this year.

  689. SJ44 April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    AJ has showed a lot grinding thru 6 here.

    Last year, he meltsdown.

    Too bad Posada won’t get any credit for once again helping him keep the team in the game and give them 6 innings.

  690. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    Patrick, calling Gardner a good player at this point is not a fact; I don’t think he’s that good at all.

  691. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    Well at least AJ settled down. We need to get a rally going against this soft Angels pen.

  692. awaism April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am

    Yankees broadcasters> SNY

  693. pistol pete April 24th, 2010 at 12:18 am

    I hate regulars bunting plus Gardner isn’t really a good bunter. Could have been a big inning, don’t like giving up outs, they are tough to get as the game lingers on. Johnson continues to test my patience, he struck out that at bat but the ump missed the call, then made the Angels pay with a routine groundout to second base. I’ll keep waiting for the turn around but I really don’t like Johnson. Matsui or Damon would have been far far better for similiar money. Johnson never seems to hit the ball hard, never squares it on his bat.

  694. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:18 am

    “He’s a good player. Not a great player, a good player”

    If you look at his entire game, he’s probably an average ballplayer at best. And that might be generous.

  695. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:18 am

    Again…Gardner has one sac bunt and 0 bunt hits.

  696. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:18 am

    I bring AJ out again …………he’s obviously a lot better than Boone Logan and he’s pitching well now.

  697. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:19 am

    This has been a pretty wild game. I thought for sure Burnett was done but he’s really calmed down, I’ve never seen A.J. do that. Lots of HBP, some scoring, the collision. Fun night! Hopefully the Yanks can win this one

  698. awaism April 24th, 2010 at 12:19 am

    tex looks soo focused

  699. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 12:19 am

    “Too bad Posada won’t get any credit for once again helping him keep the team in the game and give them 6 innings.”

    Sure he will, but probably not enough.

  700. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:19 am

    GB7-

    AJ has really settled down and is generating a ton of ground balls since he went to that sinking fastball. The Angels really aren’t getting lift on the ball.

    I think AJ should go back out there with a short leash. But these are exactly the kind of games AJ needs to be able to throw.

    I wish he’d made the adjustment to the two seamers one inning earlier. If he could have cut it from two bad innings to one he’d still be in command of the game.

    But as it is I’m happy to see him adjust. He didn’t do that nearly enough last year.

  701. Wobatus April 24th, 2010 at 12:19 am

    Jeremy is right. Johnson is in a funk, but the guy is a good hitter. He has a long track record. Maybe should spell him or drop him for a bit. Just surprised he doesn’t jst start swinging more. Someone should fine him for every called strike 3.

  702. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 24th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    “Patrick, calling Gardner a good player at this point is not a fact; I don’t think he’s that good at all.”

    He’s only hitting around .300 w/an above .400 OBP% and has an RBI, R and a hit w/ RISP tonight.

  703. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Jerkface April 24th, 2010 at 12:17 am
    He has one sac bunt this year and 0 bunt hits

    That doesn’t mean he didn’t lay down some good bunts.

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

    How in the hell can it be a good bunt when it accomplishes nothing. His best bunts are foul balls.

  704. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    If you look at his entire game, he’s probably an average ballplayer at best. And that might be generous.

    Good fielder (ok i’m backing off the elite stuff, he’s good not great).

    Other wordly speed

    Very good on-base skills

    zero power

    To me, that’s a good player. Not a great one, not as good as the supposedly elite Carl Crawford. But he’s still a good player and it’s kind of absurd how much crap he gets.

  705. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Why is the 2 seamer a pitch AJ uses as a weapon only when he needs to adjust?

    It looks to be a very effective pitch for him and he has a good defense behind him. Why wouldn’t he use it more?

  706. SJ44 April 24th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Patrick,

    he has one sac bunt and zero bunt hits this year.

    So far, that’s the biggest play of the game and he didn’t execute.

    Thats just the way it is.

  707. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 12:21 am

    That looked low from the time it left the pitcher’s hand.

  708. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 12:21 am

    and 7 steals through 15 games

  709. Jerkface April 24th, 2010 at 12:21 am

    How in the hell can it be a good bunt when it accomplishes nothing. His best bunts are foul balls.

    Come on, you are going to be blind slave to stats now? He has dropped down some beauties down both lines that had good plays made on them.

  710. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:21 am

    Brandon, so what? He’s off to an ok start…..

  711. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:22 am

    What is the definition of a “good player”?

    Gardy is hitting .310 (against all righties) and is on pace for 114 runs and 80SB.

    He clearly made a mental mistake there.

    But if Gardner, in limited action, isn’t off to a better than expected start… well, I think people’s expectations were too high.

    I’ll take 114 runs and 80SB from the #9 hitter who is in a platoon.

    I realize he isn’t likely to keep up with this pace, but so far, so good, no?

  712. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:22 am

    That had hit written all over it, nice play by Izturis

  713. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:22 am

    I think Brett Gardner is a average player at best. The guy is not a smart player.

  714. Dave April 24th, 2010 at 12:23 am

    Can someone explain why A Rod has decided to incorporate that “bulge” of bubble gum in the cheek this year?

  715. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:23 am

    Separating Johnson and Tex might be a good idea right now, especially against right handers.

    Sluggers need to swing more often and not take so damn much ! How about the old axiom, look for the fastball and adjust ?

  716. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:23 am

    CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:19 am

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

    Exactly what i was thinking (scary, ain’t it). The camaraderie and pitcher/catcher bonding will do wonders for Burnett and Posada.

  717. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:23 am

    BD, there’s a difference between being a good player and getting off to a good start. I don’t believe in the “on pace” theory anyway, but especially not for Gardner who has no track record in this league.

  718. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:23 am

    “That doesn’t mean he didn’t lay down some good bunts.”

    He’s gotten down a few ok bunts but with his speed if he did get down a truly good bunts he’s going to be safe.

    This is a guy who makes ground balls to second very close. Unless Keith Hernandez is getting out of the booth onto the field Gardner puts down a good bunt and he’s going to be safe.

    His bunting this year has been better than last. But he hasn’t laid down a series of good bunts.

  719. awaism April 24th, 2010 at 12:24 am

    cano..needs to make it happen

  720. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:24 am

    SJ44,

    I already read that bunt stat. But we’ve all seen him get bunts down. It’s not like he can’t do it. It’s just absurd to tear him apart for one missed play. Gardner is off to a good start, he’s better than you and many others are giving him credit for. This is getting ridiculous

  721. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 12:25 am

    7 steals through 15 games, only?

    Geez. He’s gotta steal every time he gets on base, and when he gets on with 0 out, he cant be waiting til the 3rd pitch of the AB with 2 outs in the inning.

  722. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:25 am

    I hope they bring in Fuentes. But I’m sure they will bring in Rodney if it goes to the 9th.

  723. awaism April 24th, 2010 at 12:25 am

    Keith Hernandez only cares about Keith Hernandez

  724. Mike WV April 24th, 2010 at 12:26 am

    SJ44,

    Simple question, has Gardner been more of a plus or minus to the team this year. Just relative to what you expected out of him?

  725. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:26 am

    Scott Boras has such a smug smirk on his face right now urgghh

  726. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:26 am

    “Why is the 2 seamer a pitch AJ uses as a weapon only when he needs to adjust?””

    It is truly one of the great mysteries of major league baseball. His last year with the Jays AJ talked a lot about using his two seamer more due to Halladay’s influence.

    Then last year he really got away from it.

    I wish he’d diversify but as he’s said in spring training in regards to using his change, will I stop being “stubborn” and use the pitch.

  727. Dave April 24th, 2010 at 12:26 am

    Not to be insensitive – but didn’t I read somewhere that after the Nick Adenhart tragedy – the Yankees were going to ban alcohol in their clubhouse celebrations (following suit after the Angels)? I didn’t think that was a sustainable policy at the time, but I’m just curious if anyone on here heard more about that.

  728. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 12:26 am

    Cano has really worked counts for the most part this season. Really maturing as a ball player.

  734. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:27 am

    “BD, there’s a difference between being a good player and getting off to a good start.”

    ————-

    Betsy,

    All we have to go on is what Gardner has done in his career. I don’t like pace either, but Gardner looks like a .270 type hitter who can still close to 60 bases in a full season.

    I doubt anybody here is saying that Gardner is an all-star. He’s far from it.

    But what were your expectations for Gardner this year? If he hasn’t exceeded them so far, as a platoon #9 hitter, then you’re expectations are just unrealistic.

  735. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:27 am

    Terrific at bat from Cano to keep the inning going. Fouls off a number of tough pitches and then stays patient to get on base.

    Patrick-

    I agree – boras being on screen in these angels games is just weird.

  736. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:28 am

    you guys don’t really think the yanks win a game like this, do you?

  737. blake April 24th, 2010 at 12:28 am

    Good AB by cano.

    Look Gardner made a mental mistake there but a play like that is really important for a guy like Gardner to get done. That should be his bread and butter.

  738. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:28 am

    Patrick,

    he’s average at best. He is what he is as a player.

    Meaning, given his limitations as a hitter, certain mistakes on his part are inexcusable. Like not getting the bunt down in that situation.

  744. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 12:29 am

    Come on 3, AJ.

  745. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:29 am

    AJ loses the game in the 7th

  746. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:30 am

    Gardner has been a B in an overall grading. Defense is acceptable but his real game is bunting and running. He’s been pretty good with the running. His bunting inhales profusely.

  747. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:30 am

    BD, I just don’t like him as a player. I don’t think he’s going to keep this up; I’m sorry, but I don’t think he has great instincts on the basepaths and he’s a good, not great defender. I think he’s strictly a 4th OF……..but the Yankees could afford either Javy or a real LF, so they chose Javy. That comes directly from Cashman’s mouth (he didn’t name names, just said that he chose SP over LF)

  748. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:30 am

    Angels always have the knack for scoring late against the Yanks for a while now.

  749. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:30 am

    awaism,

    c’mon, you know better. close game vs the angels on the road. the yanks do not win a game like this. no chance. no chance.

  750. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 12:30 am

    One thing I’ve learned about Gardner, is that he doesn’t repeat mistakes.

  751. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:31 am

    Lincecum is a beast. Would love to have an arm like that on the Yankees staff.

  752. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:31 am

    maybe AJ will walk the leadoff hitter

  753. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:31 am

    SJ44,

    Look I don’t want to argue, just not in the mood for it tonight. You have your opinion, I have mine. You think he’s average at best, I think he’s a good player. We can leave it at that if that’s cool with you.

  754. SJ44 April 24th, 2010 at 12:32 am

    Scott isn’t a bad guy. He’s got a big ego but, all in all, he’s a good guy.

    Brilliant baseball mind. He could be a great GM if he wanted to take a huge paycut.

  755. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:32 am

    “Patrick,

    he’s average at best. He is what he is as a player. ”

    —————

    SJ44,

    How many teams have an above average platoon #9 hitter?

    You are right. He needs to get that bunt down in the future. Otherwise you pinch hit for him.

    I think people’s expectations are out of whack for this guy.

    He doesn’t need to be an all-star for this team to win. He does need to bunt when called on. But aside from 1 failed bunt attempt, he’s been good so far this season.

  756. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 12:32 am

    I am very surprised that AJ is starting the 7th inning. Girardi is lucky that AJ got him this far with the stuff he has tonight., He is asking too much of him.

    Not a great start from AJ, but honestly, he kept them in the game, and with the lack of stuff he clearly had tonight, I’ll take it.

  789. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:38 am

    It wasn’t any prettier that sabathia’s game yesterday, but, Burnett gave it everything he had for this night.

  790. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:38 am

    Great now we have two idiots here : Christina and Hit Girl. Hey girls why are you here it’s friday night shouldn’t be at work ?

  791. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:39 am

    -shouldn’t you be at work ?

  792. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:39 am

    Sometimes you just go out there with nothing and that’s what it seemed happened to AJ; nice job keeping the team in the game

  793. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 12:39 am

    Hit girl what you’re doing isn’t a good idea. I did the same thing last season and the Red Sox paid for it. You’re having fun but you put a whammy on the Red Sox by being a butt hole on someone else’s forum. We need all the help we can get.

  794. rconn23 April 24th, 2010 at 12:39 am

    Big spot for Robertson here.

  795. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 12:39 am

    It seems like D Rob hasn’t pitched in some time.

  796. pat April 24th, 2010 at 12:40 am

    Jeter hates that monkey. :wink:

  797. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:40 am

    Given the context and flow of that game, that’s a positive start from AJ. Last year he opens up like this and he’s well on his way to giving up 6-7 runs and just not even giving his team a shot.

    He did what he needed to – what andy has made a career of – keeping his team in the game by going to an alternative plan.

  798. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:40 am

    Robertson needs to keep it here.

  799. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 12:40 am

    they’re on stage together in a few

  800. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:40 am

    I was thinking the same thing Rich in NJ.

    anybody know when DRob last pitched?

  801. Jerkface April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    Posada drops the hammer

  802. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    Can a throw be any better??

    That’s it Jorge!!

  809. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    Nice throw by Posada…

  810. m April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    Posada threw out Abreu just for me. I just tuned in. haha.

  811. SJ44 April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    Jeremy,

    they are working. The streets are just slow because of the recession.

  812. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    Red sux roids : Nomar, Lowell, Lil Papi, Ramirez, Varitek, just to name a few.

  813. blake April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    I think Tex just got in a weird situation where he had to decide whether to get ready for a collision or slide…so he kinda did both. Its technically a clean baseball play and Tex could’ve slid away from the tag and been fine, but its hard to critique something like that when it happens so fast…tex wasn’t trying to hurt anybody, he was trying to score a run. I think you always have to look at intent on things like this.

    Hip hip jorge., nice throw.

  814. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 12:41 am

    “I wish he’d diversify but as he’s said in spring training in regards to using his change, will I stop being “stubborn” and use the pitch.”

    I could understand if AJ was one of the best or better pitchers in baseball. But, he clearly is not.

    You would think at some point he would say maybe I should try something different, so I can take it to the next level. It is not even like he needs to learn another pitch. He has them there at his disposal.

  815. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:42 am

    Honestly, this is the kind of game I expect from Pettitte in tomorrow’s game. This just isn’t a good park for him.

    Great throw by Posada.

    Abreu was out. Can’t you read a re-play ?

  825. rconn23 April 24th, 2010 at 12:43 am

    Overpowered him. Time to win this thing.

  826. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:43 am

    Tough to say Abreu shouldn’t have run there…

    but with Hunter, Matsui, and Morales coming up in a tie game, it’s a tough decision.

    Moot point now… Jorge and DRob took care of business! Great job to pick up AJ.

  827. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS crosses Braden's mound) April 24th, 2010 at 12:43 am

  830. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 12:43 am

    Posada’s arm has looked much better the past few games and back to where it was last year. He was sailing the ball a little towards RF in the early goings of the season.

  831. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 12:44 am

    Some real heat from Robertson. Hopefully the bats can wake up again. I hope to see Fuentes in this game but I don’t think Scioscia is dumb enough.

  832. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:44 am

  834. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:44 am

    I don’t get why people can’t just accept AJ for who he is. LGY, he’s a good pitcher and he’s had a good career. He works very hard – he’s not out there slacking. I’m not saying that’s what you’re saying, but people should be more accepting of AJ; it’s not fair to expect him to be more than he’s capable of being.

  835. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:45 am

    Granderson is due for anotehr big hit!

  836. Carl April 24th, 2010 at 12:45 am

  837. pistol pete April 24th, 2010 at 12:45 am

  846. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:47 am

    Hunter is NOT a nice guy at all ! They try to project him that way. I remember when he took out KC’s catcher a few years ago with ball on the way from right field and blindsided him with the plate completely open and cather on first base side of plate. Phony smile !!!

  847. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:48 am

    Betsy,

    The thing is, he is capable of doing more than what he’s done in his career. He, in many cases, has been his own worst enemy. It has nothing to do with who is cathcing him.

    Tonight he kept his team in the ballgame after a dreadful start, so he certainly deserves credit.

    gardner has to try to steal

    that pitch was a strike

  863. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 12:51 am

    Makeup call for Ball 4. Gardner needs to be stealing here immediately, to get Jeter a chance to drive him in.

  864. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:51 am

  866. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:51 am

    “I like it when the other trolls and or idiots get upset when one of their own ‘crosses the line’”

    It’s even more amusing that she could recognize the new garbage as a Red Sox fan without any explicit reference being made.

    Class identifying class.

  867. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:51 am

    Haha first of all that was a strike.

    Second of all, why can’t David Robertson face more than 1 hitter? After Joba who is in the pen (considering we all know Girardi will save Mo for a save)?

  868. RS April 24th, 2010 at 12:51 am

    Gardner has to steal no matter what. If he gets caught, Jeter leads off the next inning.

  869. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:51 am

    Gardner needs to run on first pitch to keep digging a hole for jeter

  874. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:52 am

    Rconn, I think people are projecting their expectations on AJ and it’s unfair. He’s not a crap pitcher like people sometimes talk about him – he’s a good pitcher. That should be enough – it’s not like he’s a slacker. If he were, then I would say there’s a problem.

  877. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 12:52 am

    David Robertson threw 6 pitches last inning. SIX PITCHES. Yet Joba is warming up in the pen with nobody on base in a tie game.

    Why can’t Girardi ever let his pitchers just go out there and pitch? It always has to be the mix and match nonsense that burns through the entire pen every night.

  878. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:52 am

    Well nice at bat by Gardner to get on base.

  879. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:53 am

    MLB Gameday had that ball 4 as a clear strike… but like some of you said, the 3rd pitch was not a strike either

  880. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:53 am

  895. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:54 am

    Jeter looks off in this at-bat. He just got two balls out over the plate and he tried to pull them both rather then rip them to right. Weird…

  896. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 12:55 am

    Betsy,

    I know what you are saying, but I am really not trying to bash AJ. The point I was trying to make was that he does appear to be capable of so much more. It is just frustrating since he is so talented.

  897. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:55 am

    Wow so close !

  898. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 12:55 am

  900. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:56 am

    Rodney about to throw pitch 21

  907. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:56 am

    LGY, I didn’t mean to suggest you were bashing AJ….but I don’t get what’s wrong with what he’s giving us (including winning the biggest game of the year last year).

  908. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:57 am

    Why did Jeter swing at that pitch. It was so inside all you would do is groundout.

  909. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 12:57 am

    Why not leave Robertson in till he gets in trouble ?

  910. blake April 24th, 2010 at 12:57 am

    Rodney has some pretty nasty stuff.

  911. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:57 am

    In a tie game there really is no reason not to send Robertson out there. He threw 6 pitches and looked great.

    Robertson would be the 8th inning guy on the vast majority of teams in baseball. There is nothing magical about the 8th inning that requires a pitching change.

  912. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:57 am

    all except for the last pitch. hard to complain, though. He’s had rwo solid at bats to start getting back on beam.

  913. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 12:57 am

    yanks rarely win a close game in anaheim

    and they won’t win this one

  914. RS April 24th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    I hope Robertson is out for the 8th inning. He’s rested and who knows how long this game will go?

  915. Carlo April 24th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    Big inning for Joba here. Need to keep this game right here and let our big boppers Nick and Tex get cracks to win it in the 9th.
    ;)

  916. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    big half inning for Joba or DRob here

    NJ, Tex, and ARod coming up in the 9th.

    Rodney is probably done after 21 pitches and their only other dependable reliever, Jepsen already pitched.

    sorry Scot Shields, you jsut dont scare me anymore. And Fuentes? bring him on!

  917. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    Rodney struggles against every team except the Yankees, lol.

  921. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    Actually, jeter’s had 3 solid at bats

  923. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    “Why did Jeter swing at that pitch. It was so inside all you would do is groundout.”

    Rodney’s ball had a ton of arm side run. Jeter wasn’t picking the ball up well and it just bore down on him and ate him up.

  924. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 12:59 am

    Oh wait – Joba is the 8th inning guy so he absolutely must pitch the 8th.

  926. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 12:59 am

    Girardi is such a bozo sometimes. Why take Robertson out? It makes no sense at all

  927. CB April 24th, 2010 at 12:59 am

    Modern bull pen usage makes no sense.

  928. Trevor April 24th, 2010 at 12:59 am

    Robertson hasn’t pitched in a week and threw all of 6 pitches. No reason to take him out.

  929. blake April 24th, 2010 at 12:59 am

    hold uhm here Jobber and we’ll scratch one across in the 9th.

  930. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 12:59 am

    DRob has thrown 6 pitches in 10 days.

    The guy isn’t superman everybody… of course he can’t pitch the 8th!!

  931. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:00 am

    CB
    Yeah Rodney as a lot of run on his pitches.

  932. carlo April 24th, 2010 at 1:00 am

    Maybe its in our best interest to give them a run here and bait them into bringing in Fuentes

  933. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:00 am

    Ugh, I really hate how Girardi uses Robertson for one or two batters and then takes him out after 5 pitches. He does this so often.

  934. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:00 am

    It’s just asinine, seriously.

  935. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 1:00 am

    well, the game is in Joba’s hands right now.

    battle of the bullpens…

    hit girl = DAN. I have to turn you in man. You’re hurting our Red Sox.

  938. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    Damn that Nick Swisher and his horrible fielding

  939. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    Not leaving Robertson in to start this inning makes absolutely no sense. Girardi goes threw the relievers way too quickly. He is terrible when it comes to using guys for 1 or 2 batters.

  940. RalphieD (OPPC) April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    great play by swisher

  941. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    Predictable hit !

  942. pat April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    Swish makes that sliding stop really well.

  943. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    Girardi burns through his bullpen as if it’s firewood. He pretty much is forcing his team to take the lead in the next inning or two, rather than letting Robertson pitch another inning and keep Joba fresh.

    It’s not like Joba has been that dominant this season anyway, and in fact I find it hard to believe that he is more dominant than Robertson at this point.

  944. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    nah, the yanks didn’t need matsui.

    they didn’t need a DH who could actually hit the ball and get important hits, at that.

    thanks cashman

  945. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    Come on Joba don’t blow this. Throw strikes.

  946. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    It’s amazing how guys who are constantly professing to be old school like LaRussa have ruined how bull pens are managed.

    It’s dumb beyond belief.

  947. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Morales scares me…

    most feared guy in the lineup

  948. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Rodney > Joba

  949. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Needs to turn the ball over and get a DP.

  950. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:02 am

    He’s calling high strikes.

  951. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Come on Joba find the plate…

  952. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Ugh we’re on the road. Save Joba for if they’re still tied in the 10th (assuming Mo gets the 9th).

  953. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    He needs to start with throwing strikes that aren’t right down the middle.

  954. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Yanks are done ! Trust me !

  955. hey kelvin says April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Poor joba. Nail biter here in anaheim

  956. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Joe needs to be smarter than that. Either he just doesn’t like Robertson or he’s not an original thinker – I think it must be both. What bothers me is Robertson was pitching well; why not let him pitch? What kind of confidence is that showing in Robertson? I’m very disappointed. More to the point, it is not necessary to blow through the pen.

  957. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Damned

  958. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Could have told you that was coming. Joe Girardi ladies and gentlemen … /sigh

  959. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    wow, not good.

  960. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Joba choked !

  961. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    told ya so

    yanks are psyched out in anaheim

    joba is not good enough

  962. Trevor April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    And that’s why you don’t take out Robertson…….

  963. Carl April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Thats your ballgame folks

  964. Benny Blanco April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    nice. not!

  965. carlo April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Perfect. Enter brian fuentes

  966. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Anyone seen Robertson ?

  967. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Morales might be the most underrated hitter in the game. :(

  968. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    joba is not an 8th inning guy, folks

    get used to this all year long

    he has no fastball

  969. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Well, Girardi lost this game.

  970. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    angels are just the better team in close games

  971. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Joba fails.
    He’s not the 8th inning guy, not even close.

    The more experiment on him means more failure on the team.

    I am lucky I have never been his fan.

  972. igotid88 April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    damn

  973. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    maybe a sweep coming up?

  974. che April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Why wouldn’t Girardi use Marte or Logan for the 2 left handed hitters starting the 8th?!

  975. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Idiot Girardi blows yet another game by over managing with his bullpen.

    SIX

    PITCHES

    That’s all Robertson had thrown in this game, and guess what? He struck out Torii Hunter, their #3 hitter.

    Yet it clearly makes more sense to bring in Joba, who is inconsistent and no longer anywhere near as dominant as he had been in the past. Let’s take out the guy who has shown he is sharp tonight, and bring in someone who may not be adjusted to the mound, may not be on tonight, etc in a tie game on the road.

    Girardi has the best roster in baseball, if only he could keep his HANDS OFF IT.

  976. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Smog capital of the world and they make it worse with the silly fireworks

  977. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Brian Fuentes isn’t very good.

    NJ, Tex, ARod, Cano…

    Joba just needs to keep it to 2 runs here…. gulp

  978. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    We can come back in the 9th inning.

    Nick Johnson can get it started.

  979. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    ABsolutely asinine, Joe………………I’m so angry right now.

  980. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    The bad Joba strikes again…If he has such good numbers against Joba why didn’t Robertson face him? Joba’s stuff is either unhittable or terrible. There isn’t any inbetweens with him.

  981. baseballfab April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Wow, BOMB.

  982. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    the slider isnt sliding tonight.

  983. pat April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Morales doing a whole lot of styling on that HR

  984. Donnie - Will Meet Dallas Braden Under the O'Neill Banner April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Joba coming in against two professional hitting lefties had blown save written all over it. Fuentes is beatable, but the first two batters are two of the coldest players in our lineup. Gonna be tough.

  985. pistol pete April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    God I’m glad we didn’t sign Matsui but have Johnson. That single was a rocket followed by a bomb by Morales. Why does Girardi use so many relievers especially when one is so much more rested like DRob was. He manages every game like a playoff game, Joe, it’s a long season.

  986. baseballfab April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Head case.

  987. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Change pitchers, now, please.

  988. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Girardi made a mistake.

    Everyone makes mistakes.

    He makes less mistakes than he has successes.

  989. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    and this team is not good in close games as a whole with the loss of matsui and damon

    more brilliance from Joba

  990. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    What impresses me about Robertson is how he bounced back from allowing that grand slam to Abreu… next outing strikes out 3 in 1.1. Joba’s a little slower to recover.

  991. twenty-eight April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Joba has nothing tonight….leave him in and hang himself. This sucks.

  992. Donnie - Will Meet Dallas Braden Under the O'Neill Banner April 24th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Well, I guess it couldn’t be a blown save, since we have no lead. I’m tired.

  993. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    Why not leave in Robertson ? I don’t understand why Joe puts everyone ahead of Robertson. He needs to stop doing that especially since Joba is not all that special. He has been a average pitcher ever since the injury in 2008.

  994. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    This game is just an embarrasment for the manager. There is simply no two ways about it.

    People are constantly criticizing statistics are taking the human element out of the game.

    But perhaps the manner in which the human elements of the game has been most eliminated is the recipe driven cookie cutter no thought involved fashion in which modern bull pens are managed.

    There is no thinking required at all. You don’t need to follow the dynamics of the game. You don’t need to watch how the guy is throwing in the seventh.

    You just manage by recipe. It is completely managing by rote.

    And every time you bring in a new guy you are increasing the probability of having a guy out on the mound who simply doesn’t have it.

    Absolutely embarrassing management.

  995. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    As I said earlier, Angels have the knack for scoring late against Yanks. That’s all the more reason to stay with an effective reliever !!!

  996. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    Betsy,

    Yeah I know you weren’t saying I was bashing him. Was just saying it in general, because my posts could be viewed as such.

    There really is not a problem with what he is giving us. It is more of just frustration and confusion. He seems like he has the ability to take it to the next level or even just be slightly better. He admitted like CB mentioned that he is stubborn.

    It is always just hard to watch an athlete not live up to his potential or use all his talents.

  997. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    Now, that doesn’t mean that Joba can’t get the job done…awful job by Joba, who I do not think has been GREAT this year. He’s been ok……..but this was terrible.

    The game hasn’t been lost yet, but the Yankees haven’t hit at all in the last 3 games and they haven’t played a good game today.

  998. baseballfab April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    Brian Fuente sucks, we got this.

  999. Trevor April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    The problem with running threw relievers, is you never know who’s not going have it when they come out of the pen. Roberson looked good. Hasn’t pitched in awhile and he takes him out. Makes no sense.

  1000. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:06 am

    It’s funny you guys blame on Joe. Did he pitch?
    The bottom line is Joba fails to do his job.

  1001. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:07 am

    “We can come back in the 9th inning.

    Nick Johnson can get it started.”

    no you can’t

    and no he can’t

    Hit Girl told you the Yanks would lose this game. Listen to Hit Girl

  1002. JMK aka The Overshare April 24th, 2010 at 1:07 am

    Why wasn’t a lefty in?

  1003. Trevor April 24th, 2010 at 1:07 am

    Through

  1004. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:07 am

    It’s so sickening to watch the manager make a move that EVERYONE is against and then watch it backfire. Hopefully a reporter calls Girardi out about this.

    At the rate he’s going, Joba is going to pitch about twice as many innings out of the bullpen as any reliever not named Rivera. Let the other guys pitch!!

  1005. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:07 am

    It doesn’t take a genius to see that this is the wrong move.

    I was saying it before the inning even began that it would be a mistake, and any with a brain could have seen such. Joba has earned NOTHING. If not for what he had done 2 years ago, he would be in AAA right now. He has been dominant as a reliever against the OAKLAND ATHLETICS, one of the worst hitting teams in all of baseball. That sure is a representative sample size, rather than the fact that everyone in the world has been beating the tar out of him the last 2 years.

    There is no magic “go to the bullpen and get your velocity back” pill. Joba has terrible mechanics and is incredibly inconsistent. These are characteristics that DO NOT TRANSLATE TO THE BULLPEN. Yet everyone thinks he is going to all of a sudden become a shut down 8th inning guy? He can’t throw strikes that aren’t down the middle of the plate, and his fastball is 92-93. Yeah right.

  1006. Carl April 24th, 2010 at 1:07 am

    I’m sorry. Joba didn’t get the job done. Hes done as far as I’m concerned. He can’t throw the ball past anyone anymore. It really is sad.

  1007. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:08 am

    Morales, Kendrick kill the Yanks. Brings in righty to face lefties.

  1008. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:08 am

    Just because Joe has won a WS does not mean he’s beyond criticism; this was disgraceful. Joba’s the 8th inning guy, so he MUST pitch the 8th. Poor D-Rob – he’s really in Joe’s dog house for some reason.

    LGY, that’s just it – I don’t think he’s capable of more than what he’s giving us; he’s doing the best he can.

  1009. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    Yes, I hope he gives up another 2run HR, so they won’t have high expectation on him.

  1010. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    Girardi really should take Joba out so the Yanks have a chance in the 9th. Too bad there is no one good left in the bullpen since Robertson was used for what 6 pitches? All because Girardi thinks every batter needs to face a different pitcher.

  1011. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    “The game hasn’t been lost yet,”

    Betsy,

    THE GAME IS LOST.

    This is not last year’s team. There are no thrilling comebacks with Nick Johnson coming to bat.

    The Yanks have a terrible bullpen, so get used to these things happening over and over again.

  1012. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    This was so Joe Torresque.

  1013. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    Will people stop blaming NJ and start blaming Joe, Joba, and Gardner if we lose this game. If Joba doesn’t step up this year in this role then he needs to be removed.

  1014. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    This whole game has just been irritating to watch.

  1015. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    Joba is broken right now, the bullpen is not the answer he just isn’t a good pitcher at the moment.

    And CB is right, that was some embarrassing managing by Girardi. It pains me to say it because I really like Joe G but that was just awful

  1016. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    “Why wasn’t a lefty in?”

    Because a lefty isn’t the 8th inning guy. Didn’t you see yesterday’s official bulletin from Girardi?

    Joba has been declared the all important “8th inning man.”

    So of course the recipe says it’s the 8th inning so stir and mix as directed.

  1017. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:09 am

    Yay for at-em balls.

  1018. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:10 am

    Joba is absolutely at fault, but Girardi (sorry, Joe – have to say it) is an idiot sometimes for how he handles his pen – specifically Robertson.

  1019. MT. April 24th, 2010 at 1:10 am

    The Angel’s pen isn’t exactly lights out. Game’s not over.

    Such a hyper-critical bunch tonight. And with the exception of CB, whom I respect greatly, it’s the same cast of complainers.

  1020. Carlo April 24th, 2010 at 1:10 am

    The proper move was not to go to chamberlain or stick with robertson. He has two lefties in the pen and a tough lefty hitter leading off with Morales behind him. Marte/Logan was the play.

  1021. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:10 am

    Hit Girl, give me a break you troll.

  1022. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:10 am

    “It’s funny you guys blame on Joe. Did he pitch?
    The bottom line is Joba fails to do his job.”

    These players aren’t robots. A manager is supposed to put his players in the best position to win, and that includes making gut decisions like leaving Robertson in for the 8th because he looked good in the previous inning. If it was as simple as putting Joba in the 8th inning every single game, as if it were a formula, then any of us here on the blog could manage the team.

  1023. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:10 am

    Joba HAS to be hurt. There is no explosiveness on his fastball at all. He’s just a sad shell of the dominant guy of a few years ago. He’s just an average middle reliever now.

  1024. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:11 am

    CB,

    I can’t stand these “defined bullpen roles” either. Aside from Rivera the guy that matches up best should be in there. If you’re not going to leave Drob in in a tie game then I think you at least go with a lefty with those first two guys up.

  1025. Jerkface April 24th, 2010 at 1:11 am

    Sj44 said Joba was good and can’t go to the minors. Lets trust that guy. I think he knows about stuff.

  1026. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:11 am

    Should Joba go 1-2-3, no one would question Joe’s move.

    LOL

  1027. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:11 am

    57′ Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Yanks are done ! Trust me !

    Sorry, I beat her to it !

  1028. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 1:11 am

    Kendry Morales is the one guy you really have to worry about in the Angels lineup.

    He was 4-6 off Joba with a HR going into this game.

    This just screams, Joba is TEH 8th inning guy!

    Girardi at times is a slave to matchups, yet he sends Joba out in an inning with Morales up 2nd. Truly puzzling.

  1029. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    Hit Girl
    You do know that Matsui did nothing for a good part of last season and people were calling for him to be removed. Give me a break this team is still stacked with superstar players.

  1030. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    More at-em ball luck.

  1031. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    Um Joe made a ridiculous move- give me a break. We can’t criticize without being called complainers?

    I won’t blame Joe if we lose because we don’t know what would have happened and, frankly, the team has not looked that good the last few games, but it’s still a horse bleep move.

  1032. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    LINE SHOTS all over for Joba !

  1033. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    Robertson has to pitch the 8th inning. Joba’s “stuff” is just not there consistenly enough to be in this situation. It stinks how much his stuff has dropped off. Not even close to what it used to be.

  1034. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    Betsy,

    The simple fact is that I’m right and you’re wrong. The chemistry is different with this team.

    Okay, here comes the 9th. Let’s see if I’m right.

  1035. twenty-eight April 24th, 2010 at 1:13 am

    Damage done. Joba blew it….yes, Joe made the wrong call, but Joba couldn’t pitch. He blew it.

  1036. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:13 am

    LOL Excuse me, but that’s not true. I for one said Robertson should stay in and so did several others – and this was before Joba came in.

  1037. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:13 am

    “Joba is broken right now, the bullpen is not the answer he just isn’t a good pitcher at the moment.”

    And what’s amazing is all the stories that have been written about how Joba is Back!

    He’s hitting 96!!!! And he’s pumping his fist!!!!

    Swagger!!!!

    He’s pitched effectively but he’s not even remotely the guy he was in 2008. Not even close.

    His stuff doesn’t have the same life at all even when it’s hitting 96.

    They are sitting there squaring up one ball after another.

    But dozens of stories are spurted off about how Joba is back because he was always meant from birth to be a reliever.

    People aren’t watching the games – they are watching a radar gun and a guys fist pumps.

    And the radar gun readings aren’t even close to what they were before.

  1038. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:13 am

    Time for NJ and Tex to do something and Arod to hit one of his annual Anaheim homeruns.

  1039. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:13 am

    This is and has been the thing with Joba over the last couple of years. When he doesn’t have it, he really doesn’t have it.

  1040. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:13 am

    The simple fact is you’re a troll and I’m not. I don’t give a rat’s patootie if you think you’re so right and I’m so wrong.

  1041. igotid88 April 24th, 2010 at 1:13 am

    they need to come back or this could turn into a 4 game losing streak. Even if Pettitte pitches well tomorrow.

  1042. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    I’m not a fan of Girardi putting labels on his setup guys but Joba had a job to do and didn’t execute. (yes, like Gardner with the bunt, to save some of you from posting.) Hopefully at the least this 8th inning thing isn’t set in stone.

  1043. MT. April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    Betsy, you can complain — that’s your right and you’re good at it. But throwing out ‘idiot’ and every other word that pops into your brain just lumps you in with everyone else.

  1044. MT. April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    Betsy, you can complain — that’s your right and you’re good at it. But throwing out ‘idiot’ and every other word that pops into your brain just lumps you in with everyone else.

  1045. RalphieD (OPPC) April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    pretty nuts that there are 1000 comments on here for a Friday/Saturday morning for a game in April…we are some crazy fans…

    then again a large portion of the comments are by stupid trolls and imposters

  1046. MT. April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    oops, sorry for the double

  1047. twenty-eight April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    Hit Girl. Is the chemistry different? Really? You can tell after 13 games? You’re good.

  1048. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    Jeremy,

    Substituting Johnson for Matsui is a gigantic downgrade. Try to spin it all you want, but it’s just a fact. And it’s just going to get worse and pitchers learn to just throw strikes to NJ and he won’t hit.

  1049. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    their pitching is a concern.
    The bright side is they didn’t start slowly as a team this season.

  1050. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    “LGY, that’s just it – I don’t think he’s capable of more than what he’s giving us; he’s doing the best he can.”

    We are going to have to just agree to disagree on this one then. He has shown to have a very effective 2 seamer that he rarely uses. Many on here have also said that he has a great changeup that he refuses to use as well. I can only imagine working those 2 pitches in would make him better.

  1051. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Shut me up, Thames.

  1052. igotid88 April 24th, 2010 at 1:15 am

    come on get #42 in the bottom of the ninth

  1053. Carl April 24th, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Get busy Thames!

  1054. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Thames pinch hitting for Nick Johnson?! lol Signing Johnson was a stupid move. Shows how much faith they have in him.

  1055. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Blake, that doesn’t make him suitable for the pen at all……..

    CB, would you send Joba down to the minors to try and fix him? If the Yanks think he’s going to be a big part of our future, I think they should consider this. Do we really want to see him carry on like this?

  1056. DFox April 24th, 2010 at 1:16 am

    Wait, let me get this straight… You need a base runner, so you pinch hit for the guy who is a walk machine??

  1057. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:16 am

    Just awful.

  1058. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:16 am

    Dude I don’t mind pinch hitting for THames but how is he wiffing on 88 mph fastballs down the middle? Thats really really bad wow

  1059. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:16 am

    “Hit Girl. Is the chemistry different? Really? You can tell after 13 games? You’re good.”

    yeah, i am.

    i told everyone a few innings ago that the yanks rarely win a close game in anaheim and, on cue, joba goes into meltdown.

    a number two hitter (and DH) who can’t hit? not good.

  1060. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:16 am

    Well that worked against garbage Fuentes

  1061. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 1:16 am

    I still like the chances with Teixeira and Rodriguez

  1062. igotid88 April 24th, 2010 at 1:16 am

    everyone wants Joba to throw 98 but we can’t hit 89.

  1063. twenty-eight April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    Pinch hitting for our DH? Thats just not right.

  1064. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    JD + Matsui > NJ + Granderson.

  1065. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    Wow that was a great pinch hitting appearance against the lefty! 2-0 count and 3 straight fastballs RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE at 89 mph and he doesn’t even come close to making contact.

  1066. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    I just wanna see a reliever left in when he going good ! No change for change sake !

  1067. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    heres a question…how does Thames = Tims when you say it?, another question, how does Thames miss 3 down the middle fastballs.

  1068. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    MT, again you fail to distinguish between complaining and criticizing; if you want to be a pollyanna and think everything Joe does is great, then be my guest.

  1069. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    Joba has been a waste. The guy hasn’t done much for this team- organization ever since the injury in 2008 his stuff looks weak like Fuentes. Well maybe not that weak but weak.

    I think we might have to look for another person within the organization to take Mo’s place when he retires. Joba Chamberlain’s time is running out and if he continues to fail the Yankees should trade him.

  1070. twenty-eight April 24th, 2010 at 1:17 am

    Yeah, but they rarely win in Anaheim. Not just this year.

  1071. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    See ya !

  1072. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    It’s pretty hard to mismanage this talent, but…

  1073. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    I DONT UNDERSTAND!!!

    Why pinch hit for a guy who walks against a guy with a lack of control like Fuentes???

    A 2-0 count, and Thames swung at 3 pitches after a 2-0 count.

    All that had to happen was for one of our first 2 guys to get on base and give Alex a chance.

    NO SENSE!!!!

    WHy are we not taking pitches?????????????????????????/

  1074. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    PH for NJ? Wow – that’s really going to help Nick’s confidence.

  1075. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    JD + Matsui > NJ + Granderson.

    Granderson is the best player of those four.

  1076. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Kendry Morales against right handed pitchers last year:

    .309 .365 .596 .961

    Kendry Morales against left handed pitchers last year:

    .296 .324 .481 .806

    Wow. How about that. Kendry Morales hits for very little power against LH pitching.

    Who knew.

  1077. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Ball game !

  1078. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:19 am

    Wow that was a sweet dodge and then kick move by A-rod

  1079. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:19 am

    now, look back to those silly Joba rules. LOL

  1080. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:19 am

    So, now everyone’s going to 2nd guess Girardi….AFTER THE FACT? He looked pretty smart 11 times this year and all of 2009.

  1081. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:19 am

    Not only that, but he’s a regular – now is Joe going to PH for Nick everytime? Wow.

  1082. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:19 am

    Hard to get much going when your 2 and 3 hitters are ice cold in front of A-Rod.

  1083. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:19 am

    “Granderson is the best player of those four”

    and johnson is the worst player of the four

  1084. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    Joba throws 94 and people hit it for home runs.

    This Fuentes throws 88 slop. And instead of taking pitches, drawing a walk, or zoning a pitch….Up there hacking away.

    Nick Johnson would have taken a key walk.

    Darnell McDonald takes pitches. Marcus Thames isnt smart enough to.

  1085. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    “So, now everyone’s going to 2nd guess Girardi…”

    FIRST GUESS, but whatever.

  1086. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    I think I would have stuck with NJ there in hopes that he could draw a walk in front of Tex and Arod. Probably wouldn’t have mattered but ….anyway.

  1087. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    Your all idiots. You don’t know what you have. Joba has done a good job to now. Robertson gave up runs in two games. It happens.

    The manager does his job. He can’t do the players job for them. Everyone has a bad night.

    You all need to grow up. It could be worse. You could be rooting for the Red Sox.

  1088. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    yanks choke in anaheim again.

    just a fact of life.

  1089. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    Granderson is the best player of those four

    I like him too, but I was talking about the combo.

  1090. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    I’ve never been a big Joba fan but his act is really getting old. I really could care less if they traded him the next day.

  1091. JMK aka The Overshare April 24th, 2010 at 1:20 am

    Anyone still think NJ is better than Matsui?

  1092. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:21 am

    Thanks, Joe.

  1093. baseballfab April 24th, 2010 at 1:21 am

    chokes.

  1094. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 1:21 am

    Good thing Pettitte is following this up.

  1095. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    anyone think matsui gets pinch hit for, lol?

  1096. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    christina is acting with objectivity to try and bring good luck to the Sox. LOL

  1097. twenty-eight April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    Thanks Joba. I hope this game wakes him up.

  1098. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    its one game, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but today was the worst game of the season so far for me….lot of mental mistakes etc. Tomorrow is another day.

  1099. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    So, now everyone’s going to 2nd guess Girardi….AFTER THE FACT? He looked pretty smart 11 times this year and all of 2009.

    Come on GB, that was weak man. Several of us questioned taking Robertson out way before Joba gave up the HR. I was questioning it when I saw Joba warming up the inning prior.

    To be fair, this loss isn’t 100% Girardi’s fault but if he makes some different moves the Yanks might have won

  1100. nature boy April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    joe girardi proves once again that anybody could look good when driving a ferrari.

  1101. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    GB,

    There were plenty of people who said Girardi should keep Robertson in before the inning began. I thought it was a no-brainer.

  1102. pistol pete April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am

    Hal and Cash should be happy that their everyday 2 hole hitter and dh is being pinch hit by a guy we signed to a minor league contract and a guy released by the Tigers. Great sign Cash, Johnson plays everyday and bats in the 2 hole on a World championship team and has 6 hits so far this year, SIX. No power, can’t run, not clutch, and couldn’t hold a candle to either Matsui or Damon who could have been signed for similiar money, big mistake, I said it all winter and I’ll keep saying it.

  1103. igotid88 April 24th, 2010 at 1:23 am

    Pettitte needs to do what he’s been doing tomorrow. I don’t know if Javy is gonna stop a losing streak.

  1104. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:23 am

    I just wish they won’t waste more time, and just give up Joba already.

  1105. JMK aka The Overshare April 24th, 2010 at 1:23 am

    Would girardi ever pinch hit for matsui or Damon??

  1106. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:23 am

    Are you series GreenBeret? Everyone on the blog was groaning collectively as soon as Joba was shown warming in the top of the 8th. I even commented on how I couldn’t believe Girardi was about to make that mistake again.

    There is a difference between being lucky and good. Joba has looked terrible in the majority of his appearances this year, and nobody in the world would say that one or two games in which he hits 95-96 makes up for that fact. He nibbles and has nothing on his fastball.

    In a game in which 1 run may be the game, in a tie game on the road, it clearly makes sense to bring in a nibbler with no fastball velocity! Amazing how griping about such a clear and obvious blunder makes someone a “nit picker” or a “complainer.” Girardi blew a playoff game right here in October by being too trigger happy with the pen, he really doesn’t get it that you can’t jerk guys around so much and expect them to all be sharp.

  1107. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:23 am

    Goats:

    1) Gardner
    2) Joba
    3) Joltin’ Joe Girardio

  1108. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:24 am

    This game went down the tubes when Gardner couldn’t bunt and then for some odd reason Girardi thought it was a good idea for Joba to pitch the 8th. The right move was either leave in Robertson or bring in Marte. 2 lefties were leading off the inning.

  1109. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:24 am

    Girardi mismanages the game in the 8th and now he’s opened up a pandora’s box of criticism for Nick Johnson as well.

  1110. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:24 am

    The issue with Joba is that his pitches are not as crisp as they were prior to the injury in 2008. Look at any footage and you will see a big difference. Joba couldn’t even hit 100 mph if he tried. He use to be like Neftali Feliz but now he is a waste. The guy can’t throw strikes and his stuff is not that great.

  1111. sunny615 April 24th, 2010 at 1:24 am

    yuck. AJ had nothing. Joba had AJ’s leftovers. Marcus Thames? Seriously??

  1112. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:25 am

    c’mon guys and girls

    robertson can’t even hold a 7-1 lead! he’s not the answer

    but joba will be a problem all season long. something physically has to be wrong.

  1113. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:25 am

    We were definitely first-guessing Joe….

    I hope we win tomorrow because I can see this road trip turning ugly.

    I just don’t get PH for Nick Johnson…

  1114. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:25 am

    blake,

    I hated the Gardner play, some bad defense in the first inning, terrible end-game managing, Joba fell apart, etc. Despite all that I actually enjoyed most of the game. Burnett had a very rare outing in which he pulled himself together, the collision was exciting. Sucks to lose but there’s always tomorrow. And don’t forget, we get Cervelli which is basically a guaranteed win.

  1115. JMK aka The Overshare April 24th, 2010 at 1:25 am

    Matsui had more hits in tonights game than NJ has all month

  1116. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:26 am

    RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:22 am
    GB,

    There were plenty of people who said Girardi should keep Robertson in before the inning began. I thought it was a no-brainer.

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

    and, for the most part, they’re the same ones that question every line-up change and every pitching change before Rivera. Whining is in their blood.

  1117. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:26 am

    again, matsui would never be pinch hit for.

    this may be start of a slide.

    and if they can’t beat the O’s…uh,oh

  1118. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:27 am

    Even if you say that Robertson should have been taken out, there were options other than Joba that made far more sense.

    Consider Damaso Marte, a guy who lefties can’t touch. Or even Boone Logan, who is also historically tough on lefties and may throw more strikes than Marte. Kendry Morales is a far less dangerous hitter batting from the right side, and his career numbers bear that out.

    Everything pointed to not bringing in Joba, yet Girardi made the least logical move to be “unconventional” or “confuse them” or whatever garbage he will use to justify such a move and as expected, it backfired tremendously.

    In a game like that, you owe it to your team to give them one more chance with 2-3-4 coming up to take the lead and bring in Mo. Bringing in Joba was equivalent to putting the game on a tight rope, and was far from the best option.

  1119. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:27 am

    I thought AJ’s outing was actually a positive. He didn’t pitch great and didn’t have his best stuff but he was able to grind out a good start on a day like that. He’s doing that much more consistently than he has in the past. I’ve been really impressed with him so far this year.

  1120. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:27 am

    Yep, I agree CB………I think I’m more upset about PH for NJ than Joba for D-Rob. He’s now saying that, after 3 weeks, he can’t trust NJ to work himself out of it. Thames is NOT as good of a hitter as Johnson……and I like Thames. Why not PH for Tex?

  1121. sunny615 April 24th, 2010 at 1:27 am

    Matsui had more hits in tonights game than NJ has all month
    ——-

    And oddly, NJ has a higher OBP than Matsui (.375 to .373) – not that that means anything. Still wish Cash had kept Matsui.

  1122. JK April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    All you stick joba in the bullpen people…

    Do you see how hes been throwing out the pen with a 92-94 mph fastball with command & cement mixer sliders?

    When Joba was a dominant reliever he was also a dominant starter throwing 98 mph on pitch 100…

    The 2007 Joba died on that mound in Texas.

  1123. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    Will people stop talking about NJ and Matsui. They are not the same players and that’s not the point. The point is Joe failed again when it came to bullpen choices and Joba is a failure.
    He left off from right where he started in 2009. Where’s the difference ? The guy can’t get it done in the pen or the rotation so that means he does nothing for this team.

  1124. RalphieD (OPPC) April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    what was wrong with ph’ing thames…he kills lefties and NJ has been struggling…i see no problem

  1125. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    the yanks bullpen stinks

    sad, but true

  1126. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    GB7-

    Would Casey, Ralph Houk or Billy Martin taken Robertson after out of the game after 6 pitches just because of “roles”?

    Would it have crossed their minds?

    There’s simply no way. None.

    This is largely Tony LaRussa’s influence. And it’s not a good one.

    It’s a ridiculous way to manage a game and you know that.

    It’s managing by a recipe.

  1127. SAS April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    If I were Joe, I would DH Posada tomorrow and sit Johnson. Maybe even sit Gardner and let Randy play. A day off might be just what the doctor ordered

  1128. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    And if Chamberlain gets the three quick outs, did he still mismanage the game? hat BS. They lost a game. Guess what? They’ll lose about 50-55 more this year.

  1129. sunny615 April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    I just wish someone would take Girardi’s stupid stat book and burn it.

  1130. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    I really wish that Girardi could move Johnson down in the lineup. But I guess there is no where to put him. You don’t want Johnson, Gardner and Swisher back to back.

  1131. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    I’m kind of too disgusted to watch the postgame, but I’d really like to hear Girardi’s explanation of the 8th inning.

  1132. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:29 am

    so far Granderson has been OK; NJ is a big disappointment.
    It’s funny they traded two 2004 players back.

  1133. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 1:29 am

    Prediction for tomorrow: NS (7/23 vs Pineiro) at DH tomorrow in the 2 slot, Winn (6/18) in RF.

  1134. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:30 am

    Rather have kept Damon, than Matsui. And I love Matsui !!!

  1135. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:30 am

    Jeremy,

    the matsui/johnson trade-off is a huge story.

    matsui comes up big late in the game (again) and starts that 8th inning game-winning rally. johnson is so feeble and inept that he has to be pinch-hit for. something that girardi would never do with matsui.

    this is an issue that will come up many times this season.

  1136. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:30 am

    They lost this game at several different times and for several different reasons. It just simply wasn’t one of their best efforts all the way around.

  1137. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    Prediction for tomorrow: NS (7/23 vs Pineiro) at DH tomorrow in the 2 slot, Winn (6/18) in RF.

    God, I hope not !!!

  1138. Gardner in CF April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    trivia answer: Bernie Williams in 98 I think

  1139. sunny615 April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    It’s just ridiculous to take out a player doing well because of roles. If Robertson is dealing tonight, you let him keep going regardless of the past. Put in Joba when DRob a) hits his pitch count limit or B) starts giving up walks and/or hits. Girardi needs to get that stick out of his tookus and just let players play.

  1140. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    Even if Joba were throwing 97 mph, his fastball is as straight as an arrow. He rarely struck out hitters with it as a reliever back in 2007 even when he was going well, they usually managed to put it in play. He also lacks control with it, so even if it were hard he’d just be rearing back and firing it down the middle.

    Joba’s mechanics are inconsistent and it prevents him from maintaining his velocity. It’s a shame, because it looked like they had really found something in him after they tweaked his delivery down in the minors. It’s not an “injury” or a “starter’s mentality” or any of that nonsense, it’s the fact that he can’t consistently drive off his back leg because he is too erratic.

    If they couldn’t fix it by now, I don’t know if they ever will manage to do so. He should really be in AAA right now, but with Park on the DL it’s a tough situation. Melancon may get guys out more than Joba at this point stuff-wise, it’s really sad to see.

  1141. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    I think that we should let Joba go. His stuff will never be the same. The guy just can’t get it done and he doesn’t take this stuff seriously. He is all out of shape, and his main focus should have been getting in shape during the offseason.

  1142. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    NJ is a good hitter and he’s an everday hitter; you show faith in him by leaving him there. Also, you need a baserunner – let NJ try and get on base. Who cares if Thames hit’s a solo HR? Joe has now opened himself up for questioning about how he’s going to handle NJ from now on and he’s done Nick no favors. The media is going crucify Nick and all we’re going to hear is why it was a mistake not to bring back Matsui.

  1143. Patrick April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    And if Chamberlain gets the three quick outs, did he still mismanage the game? hat BS. They lost a game. Guess what? They’ll lose about 50-55 more this year.

    Yes, in fact, it would still be a mismanagement.

    CB,

    I can’t stand this TLR management style. TLR is such a bad manager, did you see that 20 inning game the other day? Holy crap!

  1144. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:31 am

    Granderson has been a lot more than OK.

  1145. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:32 am

    GB, yes – It was Joba’s fault, but it would still have been a mistake to take D-Rob out.

  1146. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:32 am

    btw, granderson had that big hr vs paplebon, but hasn’t done much since then. this lineup isn’t as good without matsui and damon.

  1147. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:33 am

    yes, Granderson has been terrific

  1148. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:33 am

    Piniero is not a good matchup for this team right now……….I’m not looking forward to tomorrow.

  1149. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:33 am

    Damon or Matsui should be on this team. Cashman could of picked either one and I would of been happy. But they were replaced by Johnson who has done nothing and Gardner who isn’t a major league hitter. Yanks are below average in LF, RF and DH. Good thing that Granderson has played ok otherwise that would of been a stupid trade to give up A. Jackson.

  1150. Bronx Jeers April 24th, 2010 at 1:33 am

    It started kind of ugly…And it ended really ugly.

    The middle part was pretty good though.

    Pettitte vs. Piniero tomorrow. Could be a good one.

  1151. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:34 am

    JZ
    Actually Granderson has been good. And you are wrong. NJ was in the Javy trade so he wasn’t on the 2004 team. His last year was in 2003. They both were not on the 2004 team.

  1152. pistol pete April 24th, 2010 at 1:34 am

  1154. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:34 am

    Joba has been really good at times this year and other days he just doesn’t have it for whatever reason. His stuff and location just weren’t there today. It is a little concerning if he is going to be the “8th inning guy” and pitching in big spots when you just don’t know if he’ll have it that day or not.

  1155. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:34 am

  1156. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:34 am

    Martin and stengel would have ridden Burnett into the ground. At least houk used some common sense. Martin destroyed every pitching staff he ever had and Stengel used up starters just as bad, including bringing them back the next day to pitch 2 innings of relief. He destroyed Reynolds and Raschi’s arms and totally mismanaged Ford by not starting him in a regular rotation. He trashed Bob Grim’s and Bob Turley’s later, not to mention Sturdivant and Kucks.

  1157. Joba Farnsworth April 24th, 2010 at 1:35 am

    Girardi over thinks things way too much. Someone needs to reduce his caffeine intake by 200 kg.

  1158. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:35 am

    what is this love affair with robertson?

    he got his strikeout on a 92 mph fastball well out of the strikezone that was ball four.

    rodney showed you how it’s done

  1161. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:36 am

    Patrick-

    That 20 inning fiasco was head shaking. It’s as if better managing is equivalent with more managing.

    It’s just ridiculous. It’s a guy who wants to be known as a baseball genius or intellectual making his “mark” on the game.

  1162. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 1:36 am

    “GB, yes – It was Joba’s fault, but it would still have been a mistake to take D-Rob out.”

    Betsy

    Some people are too short-sighted to understand that concept.

    Often times, people confuse the act with the result.

    Regardless of a 1-2-3 inning by Joba or a 2 run homer by Joba, the act was wrong.

  1163. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:36 am

    the bottom line is, 2010 lineup is weaker than 2009 version.

  1164. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:36 am

    Blake, I agree – that’s why I said earlier that he doesn’t even appear to be well-suited to the pen.

    Tex needs to find a way to hit at least his weight for April…………this is beyond bad.

  1165. pistol pete April 24th, 2010 at 1:37 am

    Michelle You are right , right on, our offense is not nearly as good as last year and I said it all winter not just now. Less power, slower in the 2 hole, far far less experience, what the hell was Cashnam and Hal thinking.

  1166. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:37 am

    I would send Joba down……….

  1167. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:37 am

    I’m convinced that Joba neds to go. The guy does nothing for this team. Everyone thought he would try to get in shape to take his craft seriously but he still doesn’t get it. It’s time to DFA him unless they make him the batboy. His stuff is weak and he is weak mentally.

  1168. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:37 am

    “the bottom line is, 2010 lineup is weaker than 2009 version.”

    without question.

  1169. Yanksgal07 April 24th, 2010 at 1:37 am

    This board certainly gets ugly when the Yankees lose. Most likely the people tearing Joba apart were the same cheering the past few times he came into a game. Fair weather fans to say the least. You wouldn’t think we still had 146 games to go. It’s amazing we won the World Series without all the armchair managers who “think” they know better than the professionals. The world isn’t coming to an end because we lost a game to the Angels especially since we won when it really counted on our way to the World Series. No reason we can’t do the same again this year …I’ll take those wins anyday … ;)

    Good night all …as Scarlett O’Hara said … “tomorrow is another day”

    Go Yankees 2010 !!!

  1170. Joba has too much mom in him ! April 24th, 2010 at 1:37 am

  1172. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:39 am

    Jeremy ,
    yeah, NJ was on the team till 03, but Javy was on the 2004 team. Remember the grand slam in game 7?

  1173. RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:39 am

    It’s not just the fact that he pulled Robertson tonight that bothers me. It’s becoming a pattern where Joe uses Robertson to clean up a jam and then when he gets the job done (on very few pitches) his night is done.

  1174. Joba Farnsworth April 24th, 2010 at 1:39 am

    the only spot where I see “weakness” in the lineup is Nick Johnson vs Matsui. Granderson is a better defender than Damon by a lot. His offense is comparable IMO. Johnson for whatever reason is just sucking eggs. Maybe because he’s only played in 100 games in the past 4 years…? Tex will get hot again as soon as May 1st rolls around. NJ signing I’m still shaking my head over…

  1175. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:40 am

    RS, I don’t think Joe likes Robertson………..

  1176. 57' Yank April 24th, 2010 at 1:40 am

    Sure, Joba’s gonna do okay sometimes, but the consistent heat isn’t there ! Problem is also resting on his shoulders !

  1177. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:40 am

    It’s amazing how the excuse to justify Girardi’s move is “well they will lose other games anyway!” That’s not even close to relevant to the discussion point, but more like trying to ignore it and shove it under the rug.

    If you really thought that Girardi properly managed the situation, then why is your only justification that it was bound to happen eventually? Why should Joba have been brought in as opposed to Robertson or Marte? If you can’t justify the decision and are just going to make excuses, then you are pretty much conceding the point.

    You try to win games, especially ones which are tied in the 8th inning! Girardi is not going “well if he blows the game we were bound to lose at some point,” he wants to WIN! The problem is that he had a warped view of what it would have taken to win this game, and he made a huge blunder that everyone was not second guessing, but calling a mistake before it even was made. Girardi did not make the move to “win a war” or any of that baloney, he pulled a guy at SIX PITCHES in favor of someone who he mistakingly thought was a better candidate.

    What you don’t get is that even if it worked out ,it was still the WRONG MOVE. Sometimes you make the wrong decision and it works out, but that doesn’t change the fact that it was the WRONG MOVE. You give yourself the best chance to win the game without jeopardizing a guy’s health, and Robertson had thrown 6 pitches and was by far the better option, so there was no such consideration at hand.

  1178. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:41 am

    “Martin and stengel would have ridden Burnett into the ground. At least houk used some common sense. Martin destroyed every pitching staff he ever had and Stengel used up starters just as bad, including bringing them back the next day to pitch 2 innings of relief.”

    I know that. And I’m not saying what they did was right because I don’t think it was – especially Martin.

    But that wasn’t my question either.

    People know much more medically about stress on the arm. That’s part of expanding our knowledge about medicine and the impact on the game. So one would hope on those kinds of issues about running guys into the ground there would be progress made.

    But there’s no way that someone with your sense of the game and it’s history can tell me that it makes sense to take a guy out of a game after 6 pitches. 6 pitches where he looked sharp.

    Where did these “roles” even come from? Who made them up and why do they have any truth to their importance?

    It’s managing by a recipe. This is all Tony LaRussa ball and it’s simply not good for the game.

  1179. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:41 am

    JZ
    Even if the lineup is a little weaker this lineup is still full of superstar talent. Not many teams have the kind of lineup the Yankees have. Heck the 2004 Yankee lineup was stronger than this one and did that lineup win a World Series ? No

    I seem to recall them getting shut down in the ALCS against Boston. The point is Grander failed and Joba failed with Joe making the wrong call.

  1180. Carl April 24th, 2010 at 1:41 am

    Matt stop crying.

  1181. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:42 am

    I’m not listening to the post-game show, but Joe apparently said (per another board) that Joba’s the 8th inning guy and he just didn’t get the job done.

    What’s D-Rob, “our less than ten-pitches guy”?

  1182. CR9 April 24th, 2010 at 1:43 am

    “It’s amazing how the excuse to justify Girardi’s move is “well they will lose other games anyway!” That’s not even close to relevant to the discussion point, ”

    Of course it is not relevant. Lazy people tend to make arguments like that.

    Im not going to criticize Girardi because everybody makes mistakes, he’s not perfect.

    Although I dont know why you’d take out Nick Johnson when we needed a runner on base for Alex or Teixeria.

  1183. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 1:43 am

    Green Beret 7 you will probably find out that your manager looked at the stats and found that Joba had a good record against the guys he was going to face. That’s how it’s usually done.

    Good luck with the losers and cry babies you hang out with here. I can’t believe they think they know more than the person making the decision. A loss is “terrible job of managing!”

    You have some certifiables here.

    I think I’ll stick with my Red Sox.

  1184. Trevor April 24th, 2010 at 1:43 am

    Did Girardi really say Morales faced Joba cause his numbers came when Joba was a starter. Does it matter? He hits him well no matter what his role is.

  1185. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:43 am

    Betsy,

    I don’t think you send him down, he’s still one of their best relievers. He just isn’t where he needs to be yet. As CB said seeing 96 MPH on a radar guns occasionally means virtually nothing. I still think he will be a very important piece to the puzzle this year but he’s nowhere close to where he was in 07 or 08 and folks need to realize that and so does Girardi. I would match him up like the rest of the relievers in the bullpen at least for now. He’s not to the point yet IMO where you can just stick him out there in pressure situations regardless of who he’ll be facing.

  1186. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 1:43 am

    It’ s obvious for whatever reason Girardi doesn’t trust Robertson. He isn’t one of his guys. Girardi, Cash and Co. are hoping that everytime Joba takes the mound the 07 version will show up. It isn’t happening. He really needs to go to the minors and work on his mechanics and other issues but it won’t happen.

  1187. Hit Girl April 24th, 2010 at 1:44 am

    robertson is a guy that cant even finish out a game if the yanks are leading 7-1 in the 9th inning.

  1188. RalphieD (OPPC) April 24th, 2010 at 1:44 am

  1189. nature boy April 24th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    when everyone says joba needs to get into “shape” do you mean physically or his mechanics? i thought he was way fatter when he was good.

  1190. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    People really shouldn’t go over board with Joba either. He’s just very inconsistent now. Hopefully over the course of the season that settles out and he gets better.

    Unfortunately, I don’t know if that guy from 2008 is in there anymore so even a trip to the minors might not help. It’s very hard to know that.

    Joba is confusing. He should have enough stuff to get through one inning. But he’s still so inconsistent with his mechanics he is going to have nights like tonight.

    Joba doesn’t repeat his delivery well. That’s just a fundamental problem.

    It’s reasonable to believe that a year in the pen would actually help him learn how to repeat his mechanics at the major league level better than extended time in the minors would.

    Joba could get away with having poor mechanics in the minors and still throw marginal sliders past the hitters there.

  1191. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    JZ
    Yeah I recal that moment but Javy was a number 1 stater for the Yankees that year he is a number 4 this time around. So your comparison is not that great. Also you should blame the Yankee offense in 2004, the bulpen, and Kevin Brown for falling instead of just blaming one man. The Yankees sucked in 2004 and Javy wasn’t the sole reason why they lost.

  1192. Joba Farnsworth April 24th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    Robertson would do well to find Girardi’s stat book and start a bon fire with it.

  1193. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:45 am

    It’s been a consistent trend with Girardi this year that he does not allow Robertson to pitch to more than a few hitters. It’s not a result of the grand slam to Abreu, he yanked him in Boston on Opening Night too in a spot where he could have gone another inning easily.

    Robertson has barely pitched since he was at a funeral the last few days. He has a fresh arm, so it’s really not an issue with keeping him available for another day. Girardi showed a lot of faith in him last year and he really delivered in some crucial spots late in games, but for some reason he doesn’t seem to trust him this year.

  1194. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:45 am

  1195. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:46 am

    “Green Beret 7 you will probably find out that your manager looked at the stats and found that Joba had a good record against the guys he was going to face.”

    That would be false. I clearly remember Joba losing a game right here in Anaheim last year because he gave up a 3 run HR to Morales in the 5th inning. Morales also hits righties much better than lefties. If Robertson didn’t pitch to him, it could have been Marte instead.

  1199. JZ April 24th, 2010 at 1:48 am

    I am not blaming 2004 failure on one player.

  1201. CB April 24th, 2010 at 1:49 am

    Matt-

    I have to say your habit of never posting unless there is a bad loss is really unappealing.

    It’s why so many people have such little patience for your scads of comments.

    All they are is hollow complaining because you aren’t part of any kind of productive dialogue otherwise.

  1202. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:49 am

    Right now, 5 games and an ERA of 9 explains why Robertson isn’t pitching more. he has exactly 3 less appearances than Chamberlain.

  1203. Joba Farnsworth April 24th, 2010 at 1:49 am

    moving on…

  1204. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:50 am

    Was AJ really throwing 90-92? I know he was throwing two seamers, but doesn’t he normally throw 2 seamers harder than that?

    Trevor, that’s just a dumb comment; for a guy that’s obsessed with matchups, to not care about that one? Who cares if Joba faced him as a starter and now he’s a reliever? What difference does that make? Ugh – he’s our 8th inning guy. Again, D-Rob is a “less than ten pitch guy”.

  1205. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:51 am

    I just don’t have any faith in Joba. I want him to do well but everytime he comes into a game when it’s close I’m on the edge of my seat. I just thing he is damaged goods and they should think about trading him if he doesn’t produce this year.

  1206. nature boy April 24th, 2010 at 1:51 am

    burnett’s shirt? rebel spirit? explains a lot.

  1207. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:51 am

    As evidence of my claim, look at the number of pitches Robertson has thrown in games this year and the score when he came in:

    6 5-4 Yankees
    4 5-4 Yankees
    25 8-0 Yankees
    14 7-1 Yankees
    30 6-2 Yankees
    6 4-4 Tied

    In half of his outings, he has been used for 6 pitches or fewer, including tonight. Each of those three games was either tied or a one run lead at that point in the game, while in games in which he was allowed to pitch deeper, the Yankees had sizable leads. This isn’t a huge sample by any means, but the trend thus far has been pretty evident, in that Girardi does not trust Robertson in close games (he immediately yanked him in one of those after he gave up a leadoff single to bring in Joba!)

  1208. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 1:52 am

    Robertson has an ERA of 9 you idiot Betsy. You want him for the 8th inning? Are you really stupid or are you pretending.

  1209. blake April 24th, 2010 at 1:52 am

    The Rays lost as well today, i’m going to bed now with a bad taste in my mouth but will awake with the hope of a Yankee win tomorrow. They just made too many mistakes to win today against a good team in their ballpark.

  1210. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:52 am

    Blake, I preferred D-Rob for the 8th inning guy….but I actually didn’t see a need to name one. Just use the guy who is pitching the best….

    I think leaving Joba up here may be short-sighted; I have no clue what his problem is, but he’s worth the effort I think. What do we have now? He’s inconsistent at best………and not really trustworthy.

  1211. nature boy April 24th, 2010 at 1:52 am

    haha joba going with the “threw the pitch i wanted but he is a great hitter” shtick from last season

  1212. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 1:53 am

    Best i remember, Robertson just got hammered for 4 hits and 4 runs against the angels about 10 days ago that forced Rivera into a blowout.

  1213. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 1:54 am

    Just use the guy whos pitching best Betsy? ROBERTSON HAS AN ERA OF 9.

    ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID OR ARE YOU JUST PRETENDING?

    Please answer the question.

  1214. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 1:55 am

    Joe basically said the 8th is Joba’s “role.”

    I cannot wait to hear the announcement for who the 7th inning man is.

  1215. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:55 am

    CB, that’s true, but maybe Joba needs to be “rebuilt” as it were? Are these his natural mechanics or ones that Nardi taught him? If the latter, maybe he can’t repeat them because he’s not that comfortable with them. It’s always better to go with what’s natural because then you don’t have to think about them as much.

  1216. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 1:55 am

    christina25
    Joe doesn’t trust Robertson and he isn’t one of his guys. You can tell when it comes to the choices he makes during critical situations. Last year during the ALCS tied game Robertson is blowing away the hitters one by one with 2 outs and 1 to go and what does Joe do : He takes out Robertson for Aceves because “he likes the matchup”. Though the batter Kendrick only had 2 at bats against Aceves which means nothing based on such a small sample size. And because of that move we lost the game. I could give other examples but it would turn into an essay.

  1217. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 1:56 am

    Green Beret 7 I don’t think it’s you manager not liking Robertson. I think he doesn’t like an ERA of 9 for his 8th inning man. What do you think?

  1218. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 1:56 am

    GB, I’m someone who said that…….

  1219. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 1:56 am

    Only post when there is a bad loss? Another ridiculous comment made to try to diminish my remarks.

    I was posting on here all throughout the game, when the Yankees were trailing, tied, and ahead. So because that game happens to be one that they lose in disappointing fashion, I only post in bad losses? What a brilliant conclusion to draw.

    You only see what you want to see, and ignore anything to the contrary. If people don’t like what I say, then that’s too bad. If Girardi is indeed immune to ridicule, then they may want to be careful about showing his image on television!

  1220. LGY April 24th, 2010 at 1:57 am

    “Robertson would do well to find Girardi’s stat book and start a bon fire with it.”

    This was not a stat book decision. If you were to go by the stat book, Joba would be the last guy you bring in that situation.

    It was a Joba is the 8th inning man, so he has to pitch the 8th decision.

  1221. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 1:58 am

    Jeremy this is this year. This year Robertson gave up runs in at least two games. He has an ERA of 9. Do you think your manager should trust him with that kind of ERA? Do you blame him?

  1222. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 1:59 am

    “Best i remember, Robertson just got hammered for 4 hits and 4 runs against the angels about 10 days ago that forced Rivera into a blowout.”

    He pitched well against them on April 15th, which was his last outing.

  1223. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 2:00 am

    I say DFA joba of trade him for a bag of balls. At first I didn’t want to believe that Joba has become damaged goods but he is showing me nothing. I think he is going to go down as one of those “could have been” young players. One thing I have to say about Hughes is that he takes his craft seriously and he never quit in the face of adversity.

  1224. GreenBeret7 April 24th, 2010 at 2:00 am

    RS April 24th, 2010 at 1:48 am
    “Green Beret 7 you will probably find out that your manager looked at the stats and found that Joba had a good record against the guys he was going to face.”

    That would be false. I clearly remember Joba losing a game right here in Anaheim last year because he gave up a 3 run HR to Morales in the 5th inning. Morales also hits righties much better than lefties. If Robertson didn’t pitch to him, it could have been Marte instead

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

    Yes, and I clearly remember Robertson getting nailed for 3 hits (double, triple, single) and a walk, 3 runs of his own and two inherited runners to score before they pulled him and NYY had the lead at the time. He doesn’t match up well with the angels. I can link the box score at any time.

  1225. christina25 April 24th, 2010 at 2:00 am

    Green Beret 7 good luck with the real problem you have here. Everyone is a manager.

  1226. Bronx Jeers April 24th, 2010 at 2:01 am

    Joba actually looked better in the 8th inning before he became the 8th inning guy.

    I do love the whole 8th inning guy designation though. It’s like closer-A and super-deluxe closer-B.

    And just how secure is your job once you’ve been officially named “The 8th inning guy”. You could probably lose it in a week or two. Why don’t they just say whoever is pitching the best is the 8th inning guy.

    And Tex really shouldn’t have to get grilled about that play.

  1227. Matt April 24th, 2010 at 2:01 am

    You are seriously using his ERA as a factor to suggest he should not pitch in the 8th inning?

    All of those runs were allowed in a blowout win on one swing of the bat. He has not allowed a run in any outings this season other than that one.

    Do you know how many outings this year have seen Joba charged with an earned run? I’ll give you a hint: It’s greater than one. A few good outings against a terrible Oakland team do not change the fact that he looks incredibly shaky in almost every outing.

    It’s amazing how Joba seems to have the god given right to the set up role just because he had done it 2 years ago. Robertson and Park have both done a lot more to deserve it so far this season than him, and Joba has not proven that he can be consistent enough to be dependable in that role.

    A guy who can be either good or really bad is not someone you can trust in a tight game in the late innings. I don’t know why people expected him to miraculously find it again in the bullpen when his problems stemmed from mechanics, delivery, physical conditioning, etc .

    I really don’t care about the number so far. At least Robertson has done more for this team in the past 2 years than Joba. What has Joba done ? Nothing !

    The guy is not the same pitcher since the injury in Texas and he is lazy. His act is getting old real fast just like people say about Papelbon in Boston.

  1231. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 2:06 am

  1232. rconn23 April 24th, 2010 at 2:06 am

    The 99 mph fireballing Joba is gone, and he’s just not coming back. He’s a fastball, slilder guy out of the pen and his fastabll has a lost several ticks.

    This nonsense that he’s got the makeup of a closer is folly.

  1233. JK April 24th, 2010 at 2:06 am

    LOL

    Robertson with the 9 era & 2.00 whip should have faced the middle of the lineup in the 8th
    instead of Joba with the 2.35 era & 1.17 whip????

    Bottom line…

    Joba failed at his job!

  1234. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 2:07 am

    GB, as I said, I don’t blame Joe for the loss because Joba still has to get the job done. However, Joe always seems to take D-Rob out of games before he’s even had a chance to pitch. If it’s not that he doesn’t like D-Rob, then it has to be that he’s way too structured and unbending. I think most of us really like Joe – clearly he has major strong points as a manager. However, all managers have weak points….

  1235. CB April 24th, 2010 at 2:07 am

    Wow, let’s see, it’s April and Yankee fans are in panic mode:

    “Joba’s washed up, he isn’t what he used to be”

    “Girardi’s dumb move cost us the game.”

    “Nick Johnson can’t hit.”

    “We’re dooooomeeed.”

    Only, what, 5 more months in the season? Yeah, it’s all over the Yanks are cooked!

    Hey, folks, lots of baseball left to play, we just got started. Take an alka-selzer and relax, long – long way to go.

  1238. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 2:09 am

    I still can’t figure out what happened to Joba… what’s his issue? What’s going on inside his head? I can’t believe the tendonitis is to blame…

  1241. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 2:10 am

    rconn23
    Thank you ! That’s what I’ve been saying. I’m not trying to stick up for Robertson but Joba has been a mess ever since that injury. His stuff is average and he doesn’t have the makeup to be a closer. We need to get rid of him if he doesn’t shape up and find someone within the organization to replace Mo.

  1242. rconn23 April 24th, 2010 at 2:11 am

    People are cherrypicking early season stats.

    Bottom line, Dave Robertson contributed more to the team’s success last year than did Joba Chamberlain.

    That’s a fact.

  1243. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 24th, 2010 at 2:12 am

    Night Erica!

  1244. CB April 24th, 2010 at 2:13 am

    Why does anyone care about Joba’s fitness to replace mariano?

    Who cares? That’s at least another two seasons off, including this one.

    Joba’s problem is that he doesn’t repeat his mechanics well.

    Most nights he’ll be fine to get through one inning. Tonight he wasn’t. That’s really no big deal. Relievers are going to have off nights. It is inevitable.

    And the main thing Joba needs to work on in his development this year is consistency in his mechanics. You hope that nights like tonight are just exceptions.

    This is the best team in baseball by a good margin and nothing about tonight changes that.

  1245. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 2:17 am

    At least Melky did some big things for this team and he’s in Atlanta now. Joba has done nothing so far. The guy failed in the 2007 ALDS, he got injured in 2008 and his stuff has never been the same since. Cashman needs to realize that if Joba can’t handle the bullpen this year then it’s time to get rid of him and move on.

  1246. Michelle April 24th, 2010 at 2:17 am

    With Joba you can usually tell right away if he has his stuff or not. When he’s bad it’s always his mechanics and then ball 1 ball 2 and then flat sliders and fastballs right over the plate. When he is going bad his mechanics are all over the place. He really needs to learn his mechanics better.

  1247. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 2:19 am

    “tell me you don’t plan on going there. Do I need to link the two scoreless games that Chamberlain pitched that week against the angels?”

    I’m going there because it was a tie game. So it was likely that Joba would have been needed as well. The only problem I have with using Joba v. the Angels is the Morales matchup, although from a broader perspective, his effectiveness and his velo, have really been inconsistent this season.

  1248. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2010 at 2:20 am

    “This is the best team in baseball by a good margin and nothing about tonight changes that.”

    I agree with this.

  1249. JK April 24th, 2010 at 2:24 am

    Obviously Yankee fans expected them to play .730 ball all year vs. the best teams in the AL

  1250. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 2:27 am

    Don’t get me wrong I still thing this team is a great team I never said that it was bad. They only player that I have an issue with is Joba. I didn’t say much last year because I wanted to see if things would change but it seems like nothing has changed with him.

  1251. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 2:28 am

  1253. William April 24th, 2010 at 2:31 am

    Rough game (especially for those of us who have to deal with the Angels TV announcers–making gay jokes about Nick Johnson because he picked a walkup song that his daughter likes is about as classless as it comes), but on the positive side, AJ Burnett has now shown us twice already this season that he can resist the occasional implosion when his command is off. Tonight was especially impressive, and very remniscent of the grind CC went through yesterday.

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

    He came into a game with a 6 run lead, almost blew that and forced Rivera into a blowout. Robertson’s a fine young pitcher, but, like Chamberlain, he’s about 50-50 in success against the angels and tomorrow’s not likely to be easier because Pettitte has had only average success in this park. Vazquez probably has the best chance of beating the angels on sunday.

  1255. Jeremy April 24th, 2010 at 2:40 am

    William
    The Angels announcers actually did that ? I thought there was some kind of edict when it comes to broadcasting. I guess not.

  1257. The Big City of Dreams April 24th, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    “But dozens of stories are spurted off about how Joba is back because he was always meant from birth to be a reliever.”

    ppl want him to be a reliver so bad because they want to claim they were right all along. He pops 96 on the gun and talking heads like Flahtery(sp) says he’s back it’s the old joba but when he hits 90-91 on the gun in Flahtery(sp) says well it’s early, wait until the end of the month, he’s still rounding into shape. You’re right ppl aren’t watching the games and if they are then they come up with bs such as give him time it’s early. LOL so when he fails it’s early but when he succeeds it’s thats why he’s a reliever

    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.
