TIME/TV: 8:05 p.m./ESPN

UMPIRES: HP Tim McClelland, 1B Mike Everitt, 2B Andy Fletcher, 3B Adrian Johnson

WEATHER: Bundle up everyone. It’s going to be a little chilly here in Boston. Only a 10 percent chance of rain — a delay would be brutal for a group of sports writers trying to catch an early flight to Detroit — so hopefully we won’t have a repeat of yesterday’s game.

SWISH AT THE DISH: Nick Swisher has driven in at least one run in six of the Yankees seven games this month. His four home runs in May are the most in the majors and he’s raised his season average from .250 to .298.

JUST WINS BABY: This comes straight from the Yankees media notes, including the title, which is absolutely perfect. Alfredo Aceves improved to 3-0 last night and he’s now 14-1 in his career. It’s the best start for any major leaguer through 15 career decisions since Bob Wickman went 14-1 with the Yankees from 1992 through June of 1993. According to Elias, no other major leaguers have started their careers 14-1 since 1961.

REAL MEN SWING PINK: As you can see in the picture above, Robinson Cano will be one of several Yankees and Red Sox using pink bats today to promote breast cancer awareness. In the clubhouse before the game A.J. Burnett was also wearing pink sweatbands on his arms and a lot of Yankees — Brett Gardner, Kevin Russo, Francisco Cervelli, David Robertson, etc. — were wearing pink necklaces.

UPDATE, 8:45 p.m.: That’s an error on Thames and a 1-0 lead for the Red Sox.

UPDATE, 9:22 p.m.: Well that wasn’t good. Nine Red Sox batters came to the plate. Five of them scored. It’s now 6-0 Red Sox and Burnett doesn’t look great.

UPDATE, 9:26 p.m.: Nick Swisher’s huge month of May continues with a massive home run to left.

UPDATE, 9:27 p.m.: And now Alex Rodriguez has gone deep — Stick It! — to snap a 61-at-bat homer-less streak. It’s now 6-2 Red Sox.

UPDATE, 9:34 p.m.: There goes Girardi. He was just tossed for arguing on Thames’ behalf. Thames started to have a conversation with home plate umpire Tim McClelland, then Girardi came out after the conversation got animated. Girardi argued for a while and was walking away when he was tossed. It was Girardi’s 12th career ejection and his first this year.

UPDATE, 9:45 p.m.: Two-out RBI double makes it 7-2 Red Sox. Still no action in the Yankees bullpen.

Yankees Red Sox Baseball

UPDATE, 9:52 p.m.: Associated Press photographic evidence of the Girardi ejection.

UPDATE, 10:01 p.m.: Romulo Sanchez getting loose in the Yankees bullpen. This will be his Yankees debut, but not his major league debut. He pitched out of the Pirates bullpen a few years ago.

UPDATE, 10:06 p.m.: Two-run home run by Hermida and here comes Romulo. Big time fastball. Changeup is his second best pitch.

UPDATE, 10:45 p.m.: Kevin Russo is in to play third, Ramiro Pena is in to play short. Sanchez has been good so far.

UPDATE, 11:06 p.m.: At least Robinson Cano is still hitting. His second hit of the game has scored Ramiro Pena and made it a 9-3 game.

    thanks Chad, enjoy the game!
    stay warm!

    Chad et al.-

    As long as you continue to allow people like CR9 and his ilk to spew invective at every single person who does anything that could be interpreted as a slight against a Yankee (be it umpire, fan, player, or media figure), you will continue to lose readership among those of us who are driven away by the idiocy.

    Please do something to raise the level of discourse on this blog.

    # Haha Yanks May 9th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    A-PUD sucks! What a disgrace to baseball – go back to Dom Repub…. Disrespects Baseball with steroids and crossing a mound – disrespectful punk.

    Chad can you ban this bigot?

  4. mick May 9th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Nice way to change the subject, hopefully a baseball game will do that.

  5. Nick in SF in San Rafael May 9th, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    There is some awesome stuff at the end of the previous thread, but I wouldn’t wade in there unless you’re wearing your big boy and big girl panties — and maybe some rubber boots.

    ;)

  6. Arnold May 9th, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Oakland is the hub of BALCO. Wouldn’t shock me if Braden is on steroids. How else can a guy who throws slop pitch so well?

  7. z May 9th, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    Tim McClelland is working the plate, we should get a fair game.

    He may be slow to call pitches, but he’s typically as good as it gets for giving you a fair zone.

  8. m May 9th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    Let’s go, Yankees!

  9. Carl May 9th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Lets go Yankees!!!

  10. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Tim Red Sox McClelland? FAIR? Please!!!

    One of the most unprofessional.

    He sat at home plate in 2003 ALCS Game 7 just to make sure Boone touched home, or he would have cheated us!

  11. Dassit May 9th, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Yankees baseball! Ready for the sweep.

  12. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    Now back to the theater only ESPN can provide.

    Can’t wait to hear the strains of Sweet Caroline as the RS get swept.

  13. z May 9th, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    Just for the record, I think this site actually has a pretty decent filter in place.

    I don’t know if it’s human admins or their own internal programs, but trust me, they can put the clamps down when they see fit.

    You have to understand that there is huge amount of traffic here, and you would likely be surprised at the amount that is actually kept out.

  14. ben May 9th, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    Nothing like stirring the pot, eh Nick?

    GO YANKEES!!! I predict another win.

    Enjoy the game everyone.

  16. pat May 9th, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    Let’s go Yankees! Congrats to Braden. A positive 15 minutes of fame is a beeter than a negative one anytime.

  17. m May 9th, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    How much does Joe Morgan tip Jon Miller every time he mentions Joe’s name?

    How much does Robinson Cano tip Joe Morgan every time he mentions Robi’s name? :)

  18. SJ44 May 9th, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    I second Ben’s request.

    Between trolls, impersonators, bigots, and conspiracy theorists, it’s become a cesspool.

    By June, this place will be more infested by scum than good posters.

    At some point, something has to be done if you want this blog to continue to be successful.

  19. pat May 9th, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    a beeter= better

  20. Joe from Long Island May 9th, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    Tim McClelland has a reputation within the industry as being one of the best umpires around. While he had a rough time in the Yankees-Angels playoff game with that play at 3rd base, he is nonetheless well respected by players and coaches. At least what I’ve read over the past couple years.

  21. Nick in SF in San Rafael May 9th, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    You give me way too much credit, Trisha.
    I found that pot pre-stirred!

  22. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    Already hearing Dallas Braden’s name from the ESPN crew!

    We finally hear from them that Cano is batting in the 5 spot this year. But I heard in the first game of the season how Junichi Tazawa going to be a key part of their 2013 rotation.

  23. ben May 9th, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    I’m sure they do an admirable job of filtering out actual swearing and racial epithets, but the fact that there are people who spend every single comment thread raging about how the classless umpires are conspiring to screw the yankees on every single play and musing about whether the world might not be better off if said umpire were to die raises doubts about whether or not they actually pay attention to the non-filtered posts.

    If I wanted to listen to idiocy like this on loop, I’d turn on sports radio. I come here because there are usually some pretty intelligent people in the comments, but it’s gotten to the point that you can’t even find them underneath the garbage.

  24. ...and the horse you rode in on. May 9th, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    It’s sad, but I literally can not watch this game because Joe Morgan is working it.

    I’d rather watch “Maid In Manhattan”.

    Well, not really.

    I’ll watch the Deadliest Catch marathon and DVR the game.

    Curse you, Joe Morgan!!!

  25. m May 9th, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    Yeah, that was a frozen dinner that just needed 2 minutes in the microwave.

  26. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:07 pm

    Taking more shots again, Nick?

    How about you take shots at Dallas Braden, his grandmother, the Celtics, or any number of other disgusting Bostonians figures that deserve having shots taken at them!!!!!!!!!

  27. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter May 9th, 2010 at 8:07 pm

    Sj44 and Ben-

    I have e-mailed Chad.
    If you feel the same way, I urge you to do the same.

    Have a radio?

  29. Glenn May 9th, 2010 at 8:07 pm

    Just shut up SJ. No one cares about what u say. U r the worst troll here

  30. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    Look what happened yesterday – three people were left for a whole day because of the constant impersonations and trolling. I’m torn because I don’t know what Sam and Chad can do, but they don’t seem to think it’s a big deal…….and that’s a shame.

    No offense to the IT people, but they fixed the form of the blog, but what about the substance? How hard can it be to put an ignore function here?

  31. randy l. May 9th, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    “GO YANKEES!!! I predict another win.”- trisha

    you mean except for posada and alex right ?

    any other veterans you don’t like?

    if we could only get braden, your hero, we’d be all set :)

  32. Benny Blanco May 9th, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    If AJ is on his game, it will be a long day for redsox hitters.

  33. Bronx Jeers May 9th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Bigger fish to fry in this thread. We got ourselves some some sweepin to tend to.

  34. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    One more time: IGNORE Function. Changing the look of the blog is just fluff; it means nothing.

    IGNORE FUNCTION
    IGNORE FUNCTION

    I’ve used this on message boards and it’s a godsend. Yes, I know that if people quote a person then you still see that person’s comments, but who’s going to be quoting trolls and conspiracy comments?

  35. ...and the horse you rode in on. May 9th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    “Have a radio?”

    unfortunately, the delay creates almost like a Memento effect.

  36. Benny Blanco May 9th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Low strike??

  37. m May 9th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    What a scumbag call on the first pitch. :mad:

  38. Pat M. May 9th, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    Too much static here…….Lester is going to be tough tonight…..Later, I just want to enjoy the game and that’s hard to do here now a days

    ——–

    Agreeing with this completely. I used to read the comments fairly often but stopped when it seemed like every other comment made was by people like CR9.

    He has to be a troll, i refuse to believe he’s that insane. :(

  41. Nick in SF in San Rafael May 9th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    Shots? There is no LoHud innoculation I’m aware of. :(

    But yes, as Bronx Jeers says, the game is afoot.

  42. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    First pitch was cheap. On Mothers Day no less. I guess Tim has no pride, or he does have pride in helping the Sox!

    Give it up already

  46. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    And a quick first inning from Lester, helped by the cheap strike 1 to Jeter.

  47. Sprinters don't slide May 9th, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    Yes note to all…99 percent of umpires could not care less about these games…Or who wins them.. The idea that “they are out to get the yanks” or any team is dumb

  48. SAS May 9th, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    Hi Everyone,

    I did not read much of the last blog, thank goodness, I think. Having said that, if I were Arod, I would send him a sincere public note congratulating Braden on the perfect game. Like him or not. a perfect game is quite an achievement.

    Let’s go Yanks!

  49. RalphieD (OPPC) May 9th, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    so is the game over because lester only threw 9 pitches?

  50. tampayank May 9th, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    does CR9 play for both teams?

  51. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    This game is not important. The Yankees have already won the series and Sox are no match for them. This game is more about the Sox saving face.

  52. ray (sox fan) May 9th, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    Have mercy on a poor beat up Sox fan. :)

    Let us have at least one win. Just kidding.

    I don’t know how long I can comfort myself with the mantra “it is still early in the season” but right now I am not sure that the Sox can really compete with the Yankees.

  53. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    It is awfully hard to stay in the game thread with all this crap about the umpires and bad calls. Believe it or not, Lester is a very good pitcher and he’s going to make more good pitches than bad.

  54. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    ray

    you can always sing Sweet Caroline.

  55. Elias_in_NH May 9th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Let’s GO YANKEES! It’s Cooooold up here in N.H.

  56. Elias_in_NH May 9th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    …i mean, considering it was like 100 degrees last week.

  57. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    The game doesn’t mean anything; I hope we win, but if not, we did our job.

  58. Phill in Far Hills May 9th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    The Red Sox are so so very annoying. All of their faces make me cringe. I hope AJ throws a couple bowties tonight.

  59. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    I am so tired of hearing about Dallas Braden. Good for him for pitching a perfect game but can the media move on. The guy is not that important. He is on a team that isn’t going to the playoffs.

  60. SJ44 May 9th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Thanks for making my point zhlenn.

    When you actually post something here other than taking shots at me, it will be a first.

    I will also recommend you be careful who you tell to shut up.

    Not everything is anonymous on the Internet.

    Hate to see your mouth write checks your body can’t cash.

  61. tampayank May 9th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    obligatory Yankees S**k chant

  62. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    And a nice Yankees Suck chant by the Red Sox crowd.

    Is that all they have?

    I dont think I’ve ever uttered the words Red Sox suck.

  63. wanderer May 9th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Why does ESPN have to have the worst camera angles? This is simple. Every other baseball production team does it. This is serious strike zone parallax.

  64. RalphieD (OPPC) May 9th, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    saw cano grimace there…hopefully not because of his knee

  65. randy l. May 9th, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    “Lester is going to be tough tonight”

    pat m-

    it wouldn’t surprise me.

    even though he’s a red sox player, lester is one of my favorite pitchers to watch because of how he commands his fastball when he’s on.

    he can be beat though if the yankees get his pitch count up.
    he can lose that command sometimes when he doesn’t get quick outs.

  66. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    ray (sox fan) -

    Yankees fans did it for about 2 months last year (comforted themselves with that mantra). You’ve got time. :)

  67. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Cano shouldn’t have played yesterday; I really feel the Yankees should have given him a few days off.

  68. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Nice pitch!

  69. tampayank May 9th, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    —————-

    if people really want changes to the blog, perhaps a boycott of game threads, or all threads is the way to do it?

    some have been complaining about trolls, bad posters, registration, etc for years yet they keep coming back.

    can you really expect them to “fix” the blog if it’s perceived to be working (lots of views and posts)??

  71. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    betsy i believe there is an opening for team mother, maybe you should apply?

  72. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    A win tonight would be icing on the cake; but I still want to see a good game. :)

  73. SJ44 May 9th, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    Pat M,

    Good call. I’m rolling out myself.

    Life is too short for this nonsense.

  74. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    I think Cano is fine. If he wasn’t Girardi wouldn’t have him out there.

  75. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    This is the only comment I will make on what this blog is or should be.

    As Erica said if you have a problem send them an email, otherwise stop commenting on what other people are saying, you are only making the problem worse, as now there are almost as many posts about people making silly posts as actual Yankee posts. Now does that make anymore sense than the silly people who want to waste their time making silly posts?

    Lets get back to what is important the team we all root for, and them hopefully sweeping the Sox.

    Enjoy the game everyone, and

    Lets go Yankees…..

  76. tampayank May 9th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

  78. Matt May 9th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    Bought the MLB app for iPhone. Best $15 I’ve ever spent. Why? Because it gives both teams’ radio feeds, so I don’t have to listen to Sterling and Waldman on nights I’m at work! Viva technology!

  79. m May 9th, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    Good job working around the lead off hit.

    Let’s go Alex, I went out on a limb to call a HR by you!

  80. Bryan May 9th, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    So A-Rod has two gold gloves at third and the Orioles swept the Red Sox at Fenway

    John Miller’s preparation is top notch

  81. tampayank May 9th, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    my opinion is that people shouldn’t take every post so seriously just b/c YOU don’t agree with it….shouldn’t suggest banning people who simply don’t agree w/ everything a daily poster states…my 2 cents

  82. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    What is wrong with Alex?

  83. Nick in SF in Larkspur May 9th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    I am boycotting or protesting anything (yet), but I do understand why some would.

    I am going to be enjoying some dinner (with the game on LOUD in the background) with my mom, as the night is still young out west.

    Love AJ’s joke about the mound. I found some more indie rock/Yankee numerology magic a few days ago:

    Hope all the LoHud mom’s are having a great day!

    I don’t mind the whole pink thing really, but it’s a bit unfortunate there is such a focus in this country on breast cancer. My mother died of cervical cancer so I wish everybody would recognize all the various forms of cancer as much as they do breast cancer.

    Take solace in the fact that it gets early late up there.

    I really hate that I can’t watch this game because I don’t have a TV. All of this blackout restriction crap is ridiculous.

    Why can’t the idiots at MLB, Fox, and ESPN just allow us to watch the live stream online? How is it changing their ad revenue if we just watch it on a PC?

  92. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    Alex is not hitting.
    He swung at the 1st pitch, a ball.
    Do we wait til June to start worrying?

  93. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    When are people going to stop calling him Big Papi?

  94. BBYanks May 9th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    When are people going to stop calling him Big Papi?

    When he gets released at the end of the month!

  95. sunny615 May 9th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Is there a reason why no one is taking any pitches?

  96. ray (sox fan) May 9th, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Hey GB7. Good to hear from you. Your Yankees have been playing very well to say the least. I have been particularly impressed with Cano. He has always been very good, but seems to have raised it up a notch this year.

    It is fun to be here in Alaska.

    If I do see “killer” I will send him home with a Schilling jersey! :)

  97. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Mick
    Calm Down ! He is hitting. I don’t hear you talking about the other hitters who have done nothing against Lester so far. Relax the Yankees are winning.

  98. ...and the horse you rode in on. May 9th, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    can someone please keep a running tab of tonight’s “Joe Morganisms”.

    A-rod is not hitting a lot of homers but they will come. Some Yankees fans just love to complain even when things are going well. At least complain when things are going bad.

  104. Elias_in_NH May 9th, 2010 at 8:36 pm

    is it really Adrian BelTRE? Everyone else who says BELtre just is dumb? Or is that stupid ESPN guy the dumb one…lol

  113. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    And I’m not in denial. I just don’t thing that it’s a big deal right now. Now if he countinues to struggle then I will complain.

  114. Bronx Jeers May 9th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Well you can’t see wind on TV but yeah Thames had me thinking of Damon on that play.

  115. SAS May 9th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Thames costs us a run almost every time he plays defense…

    sorry-think. It’s been a long day lol.

  120. Bronx Jeers May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    OK he’s worse than Damon.

  121. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    I wont blame Thames. Just bad luck. As usual. And Jon MIller yelled as loud as he could.

  122. SAS May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    whew, Thames is dreadful.

  123. baseballfab May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    No offense intended, but Thames kind of sucks out there.

  124. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    Wow.

  125. wanderer May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    It’s actually incredible how unsurprised I am that Thames dropped that ball.

  126. randy l. May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    crap!

    that was a little too interesting.

  127. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

  128. Bronx Born May 9th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    I had the distinct honor to read my poem THE SPIRIT LINGERS for the thousands of people who turned out for the Clearwater Relay for Life Friday night.

    THE SPIRIT LINGERS
    A Tribute by Larry Jaffe

    Cancer runs
    through my family
    like the River Styx
    it will not eat us alive
    our spirit defies death.

    My Aunt Sheila
    gave up cigarettes
    but it was too late
    to rescue her
    from the smoky haze.

    My Uncle Heshie
    gave up good food
    passing too soon
    despite his diet
    of fruit and nuts.

    My Mother
    donates twin breasts
    to the cause
    yet wakes up healthy
    in her 83rd year
    we applaud her.

    Death cannot
    defeat these souls
    though the body
    may be destroyed
    the spirit survives all.

    The spirit rises above
    the need to succumb
    surviving as selfless self
    a shining glistening
    tribute of tomorrow.

    There is no defeat
    only the delight
    of taking life
    to highpoints
    and forsaking demise.

    This journey
    takes us by surprise
    twists fate into knots
    leaving the emptiness
    behind in shallow graves.

    This is life
    this the fortitude
    it takes to survive
    and make life
    this wondrous
    creative gift.

  129. teddy gbu May 9th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    this why thames can’t play the field. he simply cost the yankees too many runs.

  130. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    Now I think someone should talk about Thames. I think Gardner would have been a better choice even against a tough lefty.

  131. Glenn May 9th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    Why is Thames out there?

  132. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    It never fails. We have the guy out there in left, and the ball finds him, and he cant make the play, unlike the thousands of plays that Manny made, despite his “bad defense.” It’s okay Thames!

  133. THE TRUTH May 9th, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    That was awful.

  134. KevinP May 9th, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Marcus costing the teams runs with his defense. What a shocker.

    I eally don’t care how he’s hitting. Play Winn full time and sprinkle Thames in sparingly. It’s like the 4th time he obviously cost the teams runs.

  140. Glenn May 9th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Thames is another great reason why they didn’t bring back Damon

  141. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Thames will hit at the first pitch for weak ground out.
    He sucks.

  142. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    mick
    Yeah if you are going to put him in then plug him in the DH role. He can’t play the field. You would think Girardi would know that by now.

  143. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    ok, make it weak fly out.

  147. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    He can hit but he can’t field. Also I wouldn’t be talking about Damon because he can’t play the field as well.

  148. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    posada is dhing and joe got greedy with thames, should play winn.

  149. Trevor May 9th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Sterling thought that ball was off the wall. lol He’s brutal.

  150. PL May 9th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Guys I know Thames isnt that great at D but the winds are miserable today. Just chalk it up to that and he’ll get the next one

  151. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Erica, Winn should be playing every day………..I’m almost sorry we signed Thames. I like him a lot and he’s a good bat, but his D beyond awful.

  152. randy l. May 9th, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    i honestly don’t blame thames . he is who he is at this point in his career.

    girardi is the one who knows how he plays left field and he put him in the line up.

    over all , girardi has been right more than he’s wrong with having thames in there.

    right now though thames is a minus one run.

    games not over yet though.

  153. SAS May 9th, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Bronx Born,

    Did you write that poem. It is beautiful.

  154. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    I have to agree about Sterling. I love the guy, but if I was listening to him botch calls, I’d get furious if I thought we had a ball off the wall and it was an out.

    Cheap Strike!

  155. Benny Blanco May 9th, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    that was not a stirke

  156. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    Oh sorry I missed that. Thanks !

    Then Winn should be in there. At least he can field.

  157. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    Oh, I don’t blame Thames – I blame Joe.

  158. m May 9th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    lol, Cervelli throwing his bat = “Stick it, mcclellan”

    Cervelli is obviously feared.

  160. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    does sterling make bad calls on purpose?
    he does it so often.

  161. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Good at bat Frankie.

    Thames is only playing because of Jorge being hurt, and this being his first game back, so he is at DH. It won’t happen again for a long time, they know how bad he is, but tonight they were kind of stuck.

  162. Bronx Born May 9th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Yes SAS I did — thank you. It was an honor to read it the other night.

  163. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Was that 3rd pitch a strike?

  164. RS May 9th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    What kind of strike was that??

  165. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    That was a strike ?PLEASE !

  166. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    why are they stuck? winn is a switcher, put him in left.

  167. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    make him throw more.

  168. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    I was getting on Thames early in the year, but the Yankees need his offense with Granderson out and Posada still not at C.

    That play sucked, but Girardi does not really have much other options especially against such a tough LH.

  169. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Jason, Winn should be playing every day….although, I guess that defeats the purpose of Thames. Let Thames be a PH then…………

  170. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    I don’t think the Yankees are very confident in Winn vs LHP, let alone someone as tough as Lester.

  171. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    It’s frustrating because 1 run may be the difference between winning and losing – if not this game, then another one. Joe should have gone with the better D and trusted whatever offense he has to get the job done.

  172. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    get that pitch count up yanks…up to 100 by the 5th is the usual…foul it off gardy, good job

  173. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Good at bat by Gardner so far.

  174. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Betsy I agree Winn should be against righties, he is not good against lefties.

    Like I said, tonight was a situation where they were trying to sneak Thames in the field, and of course he cost us a run.

    Great at bat by Brett he should be on first already, but terrible strike called by the ump.

    Come on Brett.

  175. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Maybe not LGY, but Thames is good for a few bad plays a night and what offense he may provide is often cancelled out by his hideous D.

  176. Sprinters don't slide May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Clearly the umpires used some sort of distraction to cause Thames to miss the catch…conspiracy!!!!

  177. Tom in N.J. May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Gardy with a great at-bat..

  178. PL May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    good AB

  179. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Nice AB Gardner.

  180. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Wow that is a hard out, just a great at bat, he deserved better there.

  181. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    11 pitches, a pound of flesh, good job gardy!

  182. BBYanks May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    10 pitch AB – Good AB Brett -

  183. RS May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    I understand that Thames is good against lefties, but he’ll be facing at least two lefties in this upcoming series with Detroit (Bonderman and Willis) so I think Girardi should have just gone with Winn for defense. Winn has been heating up the last couple of games.

  184. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    1/3 of his pitches have been to gardy

  185. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    What an ab by Gardner regardless of the result.

    Fouled off pitches close to the zone but couldn’t handle and then looked for a pitch he could drive into the gap.

  186. m May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Good at-bat. Just got under it a little too much.

    But he made Lester throw more pitches in that at-bat than the who 1st inning.

  187. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    It was still at good at bat. The Yankees are doing a lot better against Lester.

  188. blake May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    good AB by Gardner there.

  189. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Jason, I’d rather have his stick in their against Lester even if he doesn’t do anything and also his D instead of Thames.

  190. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    damn

  191. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    there…………

  192. RS May 9th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Well they had much better AB’s in this inning.

  193. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Somewhere, Joe West is complaining that Gardner made the game go long.

  194. raymagnetic May 9th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Just saw Braden threw a perfect game :shock:

  195. Sprinters don't slide May 9th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    I believe the umpires may have killed jfk!!

  196. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    My opinion on Thames/Winn for this game was, Lester is tough to score runs off anyway.

    Is Thames really going to make that much more of a difference than Winn against Lester?

    With what could be a low scoring game, where one run might be the difference, defense first.

  197. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Defense doesn’t matter if you can’t score.

  198. mick May 9th, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    once we get to their pen we will be aight.

  199. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    ESPN plays this stupid Irish music. For the Sox of course.

  200. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    Winn hit under 200 last year against lefties Betsy, I agree with the glove, but again Jorge being injured forced this tonight.

    They had much better at bats there Jeter smoked that ball and Brett battled him, next inning we do damage.

  201. blake May 9th, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    If you’re ever going to play Thames in LF the Fenway is a good place….alas he has zero range out there. Thats the thing with playing him, will he create more runs at the plate than he lets in in the outfield? Most outfielders catch that ball but Fenway has a small LF and Thames kills lefties…can’t really fault Girardi for putting him out there.

  202. z May 9th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    I don’t know how didn’t catch it until now:

    LGY = Let’s Go Yankees

    correct?

    if so, good on ya, mate!

  203. blake May 9th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    1 run shouldn’t win the game. Better swings off Lester that inning.

  204. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Defense matters if it’s the difference between winning and losing. The Yankees have enough in their lineup to get by – and if they don’t against Lester, so be it.

  205. GreenBeret7 May 9th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Amazing. The same people that were praising Thames over the last three weeks and dogging Winn have now reversed engines and are pining for Winn. Almost funny if it wasn’t so sad pathetic and predictable.

  206. timo May 9th, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    Winn has a cheap contract that potentially doubles (from $1M to $2M) if he plays against lefties. Girardi may be under some pressure from the front office, express or implied, to save the bucks. Maybe Thames’ error tonight will make a difference or perhaps it will take a few more screw-ups before he is relegated to DH and we see Winn in the field against a lefty.

  207. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter May 9th, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    Is it me or do these ESPN guys man-crush GGBG?

    “Is it me or do these ESPN guys man-crush GGBG?”

    I don’t know about that, but Morgan most certainly wants Cano to marry his daughter. :)

  213. randy l. May 9th, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    i don’t know where i’m at with thames.

    i suspect girardi doesn’t either.

    no better way to find out what he can do than play him.

  214. PL May 9th, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    o man plays at second

  215. Matt May 9th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    CR9, Elias:

    Miller is actually correct. Check the accent mark on his name on his wikipedia page–it’s over the second syllable. (Plus, I know that Miller’s fluent in Spanish.)

  216. willl May 9th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    early night for us, this is gonna be a route. at least tampa lost

    gg 2 in a row after vasquez yes?

  217. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Wow Thames is really bad.

  218. willl May 9th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    burnett has nothing

  219. Rob B (Never a Gardner doubter) May 9th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Thames bat has proved me wrong about him not belonging on this team. His defense proves it. Love his bat, don’t want to see him in the field at all. He allowed one run already, and his shoddy fielding here allowed Pedroia to make second.

  220. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    aj cant hear himself think, this could be trouble

  221. Donnie - Will Meet Dustin Pedroia Under the O'Neill Banner May 9th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Wasn’t really looking forward to this game, and this is why. AJ was due for a clunker, and Thames looks like a lost puppy out in left. There’s still time to turn it around, but AJ needs to hold them now, and he just can’t find the zone tonight.

  222. GreenBeret7 May 9th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Gotta walk Youkilis

  223. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Manny Ramirez, a terrible outfielder, made play after play in the Fenway LF.

    Just bad luck that balls find Thames. Not his fault.

  224. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    That’s another bad play by Thames…

    I know what Joe was thinking, but anytime you try and sneak a guy in the field, he gets balls all night hit to him.

    Come on A.J, Frankie will wash your car if you get out of this..

    There is 1 out…

    two more.

  225. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Miller most certainly talks about BOS hits with a lot of enthusiasm.

  226. GC May 9th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Are you guys seriously calling this game over at 1-0 in the third inning? Really?

    Burnett looks great.

  227. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    GB7, I was thinkin the same thing. I’d put Youk on here and hope for a DP.

  228. amnigo May 9th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    McCarver > Morgan

  229. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    Where was that pitch?

  230. randy l. May 9th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    gb7-

    agree.i’d walk youkillis

  231. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    “Manny Ramirez, a terrible outfielder, made play after play in the Fenway LF.”

    I was always amazed by this. Every now and then, he would have some extremely laughable plays, but for the most part, he held his own out there.

  232. jfan May 9th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    I can’t stand this blog anymore I miss Pete’s insights and funny comments. he’s be wailing on Thames right now

  234. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    good job aj

  237. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    this inning’s failure is caused by walk the first batter.

  238. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Laura

    He did. He made far more beneficial plays in the Fenway LF than he did boneheaded plays. And there quite many boneheaded ones!

  239. PL May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    how do lay offa pitch that close

  240. RS May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Winn is just a better fielder than Thames. There was a ball hit off the monster either yesterday or the day before where he didn’t even look towards 3B and just fired to second to keep the batter to a single. He has better skills but also better instincts.

    I like Thames and I’m sure he’s a hard worker, but his defense is just not good and I’m not sure his bat is enough to make up for that. The Yankees didn’t want to put up with Damon’s defense and he’s a near HOFer with the bat.

  241. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Thats fine. Now ground ball AJ.

  242. baseballfab May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

  244. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Where was that pitch??????

  245. Donnie - Will Meet Dustin Pedroia Under the O'Neill Banner May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    GC,

    No, he really doesn’t. He’s going in to a lot of 3 ball counts, and has walked two this inning. He’s battling, for sure, but he looks far from “great”.

  246. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    clutch hitter

  247. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    A friend of mine (who is a CWS fan) actually emailed me to say that despite our record, he still thinks that BOS is a better team than us. I told him that he should spend his time worrying about the horrible start the White Sox have gotten off to and let me worry about the Yankees.

  248. baseballfab May 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    i REALLY thought he was going to drop that.

  262. PL May 9th, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    If Aj can get out with 1 run then I applaud him

  263. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Just bad luck. Come to expect that with the Yankees. Another reason they are the underdogs.

  264. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    fastball up here AJ.

  265. the gay Yankee fan May 9th, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    The RS are all trying to hit the ball out to left because they know Thames is the weakest link.

  266. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    no need for dp..2 out

  267. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 9:08 pm

  272. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Don’t understand all these curves to him, he can’t hit the fastball, now the count is full.

  276. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    AJ has to get Ortiz here.

  277. GreenBeret7 May 9th, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Posada would have caught that 3rd strike foul tip

  278. RS May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    That was a lucky bounce.

  279. PL May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

  280. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Papi knew a fastball was coming all day there.

  281. willl May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    as i said, he has nothing

    aj must have ideal conditions

  284. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Jon Miller just went nuts. And he’s complaining that that would have cost them a run.

    And Jon Miller says Ortiz ‘revisiting the good old days’

    :lol:

  285. m May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Too much cute stuff in that at-bat.

  286. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Geez, think Ortiz was looking fastball there.

  287. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Then he knows he is going to get one and you put it in the one spot he can hit it.

    Bad A.J this inning.

  288. The Other Phil (Don't feed the trolls) May 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Bad spot. Should have been outside. AJ doesn’t have it tonight…

    What is Morgan babbling about now??

  289. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    And FWIW, that was a BOMB 50 rows back from the Juiced David Ortiz.

  290. Donnie - Will Meet Dustin Pedroia Under the O'Neill Banner May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    Up 0-2 on Ortiz, who has the batspeed of an infant, and you go 3-2 on him by nibbling inside, and then give up a run-scoring double.

    Meanwhile, Lester looks dominant, and is at 35 pitches in 3 innings.

    Gonna be really hard to come back in this game.

  291. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    AJ sucks tonight.
    how’s his numbers in fenway?

  292. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    Give me a break !

    He saw it was coming. The guy is a washed up piece of crap and Burnett treated him like the papi of old. Pathetic !

  293. GC May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    If Thames does his job Burnett doesn’t allow the run last inning and is probably out of this inning with a DP instead of having to then deal with 2nd and 3rd with 1 out.

    I’m real impressed with what I’m seeing from AJ. That being said you can’t allow Papi to hurt you there.

  294. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    blake,

    I think Ortiz started his swing there before AJ even threw the ball.

  295. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    I don’t have an issue with them throwing the fastball, but I would have gone with one away.

  296. Uncle Ellsworth May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    3 runs no problem

  297. blue inhales May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    terrible pitching by AJ to a piss poor hitter…now deal with Beltre…bear down !!!

  298. Jim May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    Classic AJ meltdown, waits until he’s down in the count to challenge hitters.

  299. Terry from NH May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    AJ has no command tonight.. plain and simple.. behind on counts and a little bad luck

  300. PL May 9th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    at least the third time ive seen Beltre run out of the batters box on a curve in this series

  301. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    it’s the story line as brent musberger used to say…

  302. blue inhales May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    he gets an out here or gets the hook !

  303. RS May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    I guess AJ just can’t pitch in Fenway anymore…

  304. m May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Bell-TRAY

    Just like meat-TRAY.

    AJ don’t got anything tonight. :(

  307. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Jon Miller yelled base hit while the ball was at its peak. He was so excited to yell base hit.

    Jon Miller having a Soxgasm!

  308. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    AJ was due for a clunker. This may be it.

  309. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Time to DFA Burnett LOL !

  310. SJ44 May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    That’s why you throw him curveballs at 3-2.

    He can cheat and start his swing earlier at 3-2.

    Rookie mistake by Cervelli working that AB

    A teaching moment for the kid.

    That’s why it’s important to win series.

    It makes this game meaningless except for the chicken littles.

  311. Fire Bud Selig May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Jon Miller nearly had a heart attack when Ortiz got that hit..

    Sad.

  312. Carl May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    what happened to the sinkers?

  313. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    LGL,

    He started way early, he just guessed right. Thats how Ortiz is going to have to learn to hit now. He can still hit if he guesses correctly.

  314. pat May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Morgan’s infelction of Bel-tray is annoying me.

  315. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    aj cant pitch in fenway

  316. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    That’s why I don’t trust AJ that much. You just don’t know which kind of pitcher he will show up.

  317. Jim May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Wouldn’t it be great is AJ just started plunking guys

  318. Donnie - Will Meet Dustin Pedroia Under the O'Neill Banner May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Ball game. AJ just didn’t have it tonight. Unfortunately, Vazquez pitches tomorrow. Real good thing we won the first two games here.

  319. stuart May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    aj meltdown.

    thames is quite a fielder… man this is left field in fenway, he is total bricklayer.

    aj cannot pitch in fenway, he is no CC…………

  320. blue inhales May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    game over…no sweep…but 2 of 3 was good….thanks for grooving the ball to the bosux AJ…terrible !

  321. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    he got the 2 outs and then he had Ortiz., and he let him go, bad pitching this inning, also bad job by Frankie with the two strikes, you had Ortiz, you wasted two pitches for no reason.

  322. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    The ESPN guys are relieved that the Sox did not get cost by the Papi automatic double.

  323. RalphieD (OPPC) May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    well…we won the series at least

  324. pat May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

  332. Bryan May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Thames is such a hack how many runs will this bum give up tonight

    Every game he plays the field he boots at least two balls

    He is already there tonight… 2nd inning and he should have the midget at second

  333. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Time to get Burnett out of there this game is over and he has nothing.

  334. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS believes in tasing fans that jump fences) May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Wow that montage came quick for BSPN

  335. GC May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    My GOD, he cannot pitch in this ballpark. This is pretty awful. He had a good chance to deal Boston a significant blow by shutting the door on them tonight and games like this give them hope.

    I still don’t think their good enough to make any noise this year, but this is annoying nonetheless. These types of outings happen because he just doesn’t have anything else to go to when he can’t command his fastball. He almost never throws his curve for strikes so as much as his improved fastball has been a plus this year, if he finds a game where he doesn’t have the command of it he’s not going to have a chance.

  336. Benny Blanco May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    this all with 2 outs. unbelieveable.

  337. Arno May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Unbelievable. Thames sucks. AJ is 0-2 on ortiz and throws 3 pitches WAY outside to get the count full. Oh well.

  338. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Wow, I wonder how much ESPN spent on that montage to embarrass AJ.

  339. blue inhales May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

  341. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    AJ doing his Beckett impression. Which Sox player gets plunked? :wink:

  343. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

  344. Bronx Jeers May 9th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    AJ’s Fenway troubles continue.

    Is ESPN kidding here? I mean they actually had that silly piece all lined up for this?

  345. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    We can come back in this game.

    Last year, AJ had a 6-0 lead at Fenway on a FOX game, and they came back easily and won.

    And we were laughed at.

    We can do the same thing.

    This game is not over.

  346. Rob B (Never a Gardner doubter) May 9th, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Home plate ump is squeezing AJ. One of those “balls” to Hermida was definitely a strike (pitch 4), and another was borderline, but is called a strike nearly every time (pitch 2; Gameday has it just touching the white on the box, which is usually a strike.)

  347. PL May 9th, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    # Donnie – Will Meet Dustin Pedroia Under the O’Neill Banner May 9th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    there goes the stellar ERA for AJ, huh?

  351. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    I don’t get it – AJ can’t shake Cervelli off? I’m not going to blame a young catcher – that’s on AJ.

  353. YanksfaninPA May 9th, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Yanks are packing it up early. Time to hit the air to Detroit. Not impossible to come back but Lester looks great so far. I wanted this game badly as you don’t know what your gunna get from Mitre and Vazquez the next two nights.

    Seriously, there’s a lot of game left.

  357. RS May 9th, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    This is the game I would be fine with losing because Lester is really the Sox’s ace and they had the pitching advantage.

    The only problem here is that with Mitre and Vazquez going the next two games, this one loss could turn into a mini losing streak. Burnett needs to get into the sixth inning because the Yankees will really be short on relievers.

  358. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:17 pm

  368. GD May 9th, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    it is laughable that people have the yankees in a 3 game losing streak 3 innings into the first game, which isnt even over yet.

  369. substantive sustenance May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    the score could be 100-0 tonight, and nothing has changed.

    these are two ships going in opposite directions.

    next port of call for the Yanks: playoff baseball.

    meanwhile, the SS BoSox will soon be in dry-dock undergoing full scale hull rebuild.

  370. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    6 runs at Fenway is about like 3 in other parks. Need to chip away here and hold them right there.

  371. Paul Canales May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    I think we can come back. We have an all-star line up excluding Thames.

  372. Matt May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    That was a gutless performance by Burnett just now.

    He has great stuff tonight, and he is wasting it by being dumb. 0-2 on Ortiz with 2 curves, why in the world are you nibbling with more breaking pitches? You have a guy at the plate on 0-2 who can’t hit a fastball, and you just showed him 2 breaking balls. GO AFTER HIM.

    Nibbling around Ortiz turned what was about to be a huge job to limit the damage into an inning that probably cost them the game. He isn’t off tonight, he’s just afraid to attack one of the worst hitters in all of baseball.

  373. RalphieD (OPPC) May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    regardless of the outcome…obviously doesnt look good at the moment…lets see the yanks make a bit of a comeback…work lesters pitch count a bit and try to get him out

  374. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    GC, so he has a bad game and if the Red Sox go on a hot streak after this game, it’s AJ’s fault?

    I will say that it’s obvious that he can not pitch in Fenway anymore. He clearly is too intense about the rivalry and this park now spooks him; that is a disappointment.

  375. 4 Train May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    They have to leave AJ in….who is the long man tonight?

  376. Vince May 9th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    AJ came into tonight with a 1.99 ERA.

    He has one bad start and you jump all over him.

  399. pistol pete May 9th, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    AJ really struggles in Fenway, throwaway game but it would have been nice to sweep, way too early to bury the Red Sox. Remember how bad the Yanks were last year after the 1st 8 against Boston. That said just how bad a leftfielder is Thames, wow. Now I see why he onlly DH’s most of the time. Swisher just hit a bomb, love that guy, high obp plus power, he was a steal.

  400. Tofu Panda May 9th, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    Tofu Panda May 9th, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    I doubt that.

    The Red Sox offense (which is pretty good) is extra motivated tonight after the beat down of the last 2 games. Also Lester is always tough against us.

    So, with that, I predict red sox win 9-2.

    But that’s okay. We still take 2/3.

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

    I’m going to change my prediction: 16-2, Red Sox.

  440. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    One thing that has been overlooked when everybody talks about Swisher is that not only has he changed his appeoach at the plate, but, he has obviously spent a lot of time on his outfield play. He’s vastly improved over last year.

  480. Matt May 9th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    Gotta love Tim Mccelland, one of the most incompetent umpires in all of Major League Baseball.

    He embarrassed himself beyond repair in Game 4 of the ALCS last year at 3rd base, then he called for the tarp yesterday mysteriously 1 pitch before an official game in which the home team was losing (not suspicious at all).

    Now today the lower part of the strike zone mysteriously has disappeared with Burnett on the mound, and don’t even get me started on that ridiculous delayed strike call thing he does. Talk about disrespecting the hitters, I would be insulted too if I thought I had a ball and 10 seconds later he called it a strike.

  481. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    WTH! He nearly missed that one! LOL

  482. GC May 9th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    Is somebody seriously trying to say that Posada’s job is being “challenged?”

    Do any of you nitwits realize just how good Posada is? He is arguably the greatest catcher of this generation, up there with Rodriguez and Piazza, and has gotten better with age. Not to mention the greatest Yankee catcher to come along since Yogi Berra.

    Francisco Cervelli is a great backup catcher. In his prime he may be able to hit enough to be a defensive minded starting catcher on a solid team. But he is third on the depth chart of young catchers who may actually “challenge” Posada in the next couple years, and third by about three miles, maybe more.

    Jesus Christ.

    Will the media let this go. I am so sick of hearing about Dallas Braden.

    I mean he did throw a perfect game.. Only 19 in history.. It is a big deal. The guy is annoying bur give him his due

  485. randy l. May 9th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    maybe thames shouldn’t play left field in windy games

  486. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Yes good for him he pitched a perfect game but he isn’t some great Cy young type pitcher. The media acts like he is so important.

  487. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    “they don’t make “SPOILER ALERTS” big enough when it comes to this”

    Very true.

  488. ben May 9th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    LOL Thames is a site to see out there

  489. Nick in SF in Larkspur May 9th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Hey, I watched it that night, but there are people who have complained about stuff being discussed here…

    Malcontents.

  493. pat May 9th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Don’t they have a good win/loss record when Girardi gets tossed? Hold, hold, hold, chip, chip, chip

  494. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    LOL @ Matt.

    Joe West ought to call Tim pathetic and embarrassing, as his slow calls slow down the game.

  495. SJ44 May 9th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Not a good night for Timmy back there.

    Remember though, his blown call in the ALCS last year helped the Yankees.

    His best umpiring days are behind.

  496. kd May 9th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    even if there’s a loss today, the red sox know they were outclassed substantially in this series. they will remember that for a long time.

    it’s a bad start for aj, let’s see if he can shake it off for the rest of tonight and the next start.

  497. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Bless Thames heart, I’m afraid he’s gonna take one off the coconut before this nights over.

  498. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    “I mean he did throw a perfect game..”

    I think the perfect game says more about TB today than Braden.

  499. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    I don’t care about them covering his perfect game but I am tired of hearing about the Braden Arod fight. It’s old news.

  500. Uncle Ellsworth May 9th, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    double farts

  501. wanderer May 9th, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Please, dear god, get Thames out of the field. This is awful. Honestly, half this board can fair better in the field than him.

  502. Rob B (Never a Gardner doubter) May 9th, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Every walk has led to a run in this game for AJ. Guy just needs to stop walking people.

  503. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Guy should not score from 1st on that ball.

  504. JZ May 9th, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    I am not gonna watch this game anymore.
    burnett makes $15m a year, you cannot pitch in fenway? learn it!

    He is not important the feat is however

  508. Carlo May 9th, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Its actually funny how many balls have found their way to Thames in this game. Nice work playing the Youkilis grounder into another run.

  509. GreenBeret7 May 9th, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    It’s obvious that Burnett cannot get along with Cervelli as his catcher.

  510. pistol pete May 9th, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    I’ve always thought McClelllan was the best ball strike ump in MLB until the past couple years. Maybe it’s his age, maybe he’s lost interest or something, but I think he’s got crusty lately and is not as good as he was. He’s been off tonight and his decision that cost CC a win yesterday was ridiculous. Just watched Thames botch another ball in left fiels, he’s a horror show out there.

  511. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    So basically, Girardi took the opportunity to complain about the fact that the strike zone is different for each team? Am I getting the gist of this right?

  512. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Wow Thames is worse than I thought. Every ball has been hit to him.

  513. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    That loser Steve Lombardi wrote just the other day that PHil and AJ might be lucky than good. Because their BABIP has been abnormally low.

    Well today, all of AJ’s balls are just finding holes.

    I bet Steve is all excited with himself and is praising himself for being right.

  514. Rob B (Never a Gardner doubter) May 9th, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    So, if Thames plays that ball in the corner better, does he hold Pedroia at 3rd? And so no run scores in that inning?

  515. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    Carlo -

    Isn’t it though? Have there been any balls hit anywhere else? :lol: Ya gotta laugh, because what else can you do?

  516. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    I think Thames may have a blind spot for the baseball out there.

    It is almost comical at this point.

  517. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    Timmy made a few bad calls at 3rd in that ALCS.

    And the worst actually took a run off the board for the Yankees.

    Let’s not forget that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  518. Nick in SF in Larkspur May 9th, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Wait, you’re saying that Rosebud was the sled??? What????? :shock:

  519. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    It’s possible that BOS is hitting the balls in that direction on purpose. Alex isn’t guarding the line and they know that Thames is a bad fielder.

  520. gianthinker May 9th, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    If you choose to DVR something or wait to watch it and someone says something its your problem. You can’t expect the world to know your television watching habits.

  521. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    The appeal play that never gets overturned, and was incorrectly overturned.

    Hunter catching the ball in CF, Swisher out for “not tagging’!

  522. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Sprinters don’t slide
    Right. I have no issue with talking about the perfect game but the media keeps on talking about Braden and the Arod fight. I’m tired of hearing about that.

  523. Jim May 9th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Arod has been playing better 3rd base this year but he does not deserve a gold glove because of too many instances when he forgets what position he’s playing. He had never guarded the line and that is the most important thing a 3rd baseman does with runners on base.

  524. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    “Let’s not forget that!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    Actually, CR9 since we won it all, we can forget that. :)

  525. LGY May 9th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    A-Rod does not choose where he is positioned.

    The coaches do.

  526. Dave May 9th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Scutaro was definitely sticking his tongue out at Cervelli there right? Haha

  527. GreenBeret7 May 9th, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:42 pm
    Wow Thames is worse than I thought. Every ball has been hit to him.

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

    The most idiotic post of the night. Congratulations. That’s quite a fete for this board. I can’t believe that Girardi is allowing him to direct all of the balls to him.

  528. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    My bad. :)

  536. Dave May 9th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Did no one else catch that? The camera zoomed in on Scutaro’s face right when he caught Cervelli’s line out and he emphatically stuck his tongue out at Cervelli making fun of him. If Cervelli is getting under the Red Sox skin that is just awesome.

  537. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Another great sign for Gardner. What a piece of hitting off a great lefty.

    Jeremy

    Steve is a Yankees fan. But he is an arrogant tool like Michael Kay, and is more concerned about being right than the Yankees winning.

  538. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Another great at bat for Brett, come on Derek.

  539. mick May 9th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    At least among with enough PAs, anyway.

  543. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    GreenBeret7
    You didn’t understand what I said. I was saying that it seems like every ball has been hit to him. A bit of bad luck. So I don’t understand why you are attacking me.

    And he is not that great in the field.

  544. BBYanks May 9th, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Gardner has had two good at bats vs Lester

  545. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    Jeter with a 2nd line drive right at Ron McDonald. More bad luck.

  546. blake May 9th, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    Jeter isn’t hittin it where they aint tonight.

  547. the gay Yankee fan May 9th, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    Now’s the time to hit one out Swish.

  548. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    This guy will call anything a strike for the Sox.

    Oh well, cant say Im surprised. CC got cheated yesterday, so AJ getting cheated is really nothing in comparison.

    On a non baseball note, for those fans of LOST who frequent this board, Entertainment Weekly is doing a special edition this week on LOST. It does not contain any spoilers. It’s on sale now. My cover features Sawyer’s gorgeous mug.

  553. sunny615 May 9th, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    If the yanks were losing because AJ was blowing wind that’s one thing. But the fact that McClelland is just screwing with everyone makes this game frustrating to watch. Feel bad for the players who have to deal with this. Now they have no idea why’s a strike or a ball.

  554. Lee23 May 9th, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    I’m amazed at the Sock fans… you’d think they just won Game 7.
    You’re 8 games out!
    You’ve had 22 runs scored off of you in 48 hours!
    It’s the 5th inning!
    You’ll never be as good as the Yankees on a bad day!
    DIRTBAGS…

    “nice managing keeping AJ in the game…idiot !”

    uhm would you rather them burn up the bullpen when Mitre and Vazquez are throwing the next 2 games. AJ needs to go as deep as he can in this one.

    Enough Harwell already, we get it, you idolized him. You want to pay homage to him, try to emulate him instead of polluting the airwaves with your no talent biased sportscasting. Nothing worse than listening to people laud a man of whom they have learned NOTHING!

    “Newhart – Best end to a series ever.”

    I don’t know about that. I liked the ending to M*A*S*H and also the Golden Girls, where Dorothy kept coming back into the house to say goodbye through different doors. That still makes my sides hurt. :)

  592. Jason22 May 9th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    I guess it’s time for Breaking Bad.

    Still think we can scare them with a rally, but I think they might not be done scoring either.

    Bad job by A.J, but if we lose, we still won another series in Boston.

  593. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    ridiculous is the only word to describe it. Isnt there any way to watch a broadcast with no commentator sound, but still hearing the stadium sound.

  594. RalphieD (OPPC) May 9th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Tofu Panda May 9th, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    I doubt that.

    The Red Sox offense (which is pretty good) is extra motivated tonight after the beat down of the last 2 games. Also Lester is always tough against us.

    So, with that, I predict red sox win 9-2.

    But that’s okay. We still take 2/3.

    ================================
    I’m going to change my prediction: 16-2, Red Sox.

  597. Bryan May 9th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    Thanks Burnett… The one game where it would have been great for you not to have one of your classic blowups

    With Vazquez and Mitre pitching the next two games there goes the bullpen three days in a row

    Just great

  598. Lee23 May 9th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    So glad the Yankees got this guy to be dominant against Boston…
    11+ ERA last year at Fenway, and 22+ ERA this year.

    Eh, it’s tough to sweep.
    Time to go to sleep ….

  599. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    I cant believe how far Papi has fallen. That double by him was a HR by a mile when he was on the juice.

  600. tex's friend May 9th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    well we are 2 for 2 so far this weekend. Whether we win or not tonight, we took another series.

    Someone needs to get a message to AJ – if you don’t win at Fenway you will never win over the Yankee fans. No matter where the two teams are in the standings you need to perform against this particular rival if you want us to truly love you.

  602. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    ESPN spelled his name wrong.

    They spelled it RONULO.

  603. Jake the Snake May 9th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    what ESPN might be worse than watching NESN…even though they are one in the same. These ESPN homers are sick skcuf

  604. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    ESPN knows how to spell Tim Federowicz or Stolmy Pimentil. Ryan Westmoreland.

  605. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    SJ, I know – but I think it’s a personal thing with AJ and it bothers me. He is not a basket case, he’s just a good to very good pitcher with quirks. People who I shall not name who remember game 5 ALCS and game 5 WS over game 2 WS just bother me a great deal.

    AJ did need to give us innings because of the next two games and the fact that he can not pitch in Fenway is a bother……..but as far as this game and it’s ramifcations, it’s nothing.

  606. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    This is like the 7th time that they’ve mentioned that he’s been struggling at Fenway. We get it, guys! Enough!

  607. tex's friend May 9th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    Thanks Burnett… The one game where it would have been great for you not to have one of your classic blowups

    With Vazquez and Mitre pitching the next two games there goes the bullpen three days in a row

    Just great

    I didn’t see you trolling and whining during the first game of the year when Sabathia was just this bad. Guess what? The first one to tell you that he stunk up the joint tonight will be Burnett.

  613. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    You know, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Golden Girls last episode.

    But the M*A*S*H* finale? I liked the very last bit with the Goodbye, but hated the storyline. I know it had stopped being a sitcom long before that episode, but the having Hawkeye lose it – I don’t know. I’ll watch M*A*S*H* over almost anything else on tv even now though. (In fact, watching it between innings tonight.)

  614. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    We’re still seeing replays of Hermida’s HR, but we saw nothing of Swish or Alex.

    This game is not on AJ Burnett. As ESPN noted, he was high in the zone with his fastball.

    The reason for that, of course, was Tim McClelland would not treat AJ fairly with the balls low in the zone!

  615. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    I was really just hoping for a good game tonight. So far, not so good. :(

  616. GreenBeret7 May 9th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Sanchez may eat innings, along with everything else, but, not because he’s giving them quality innings.

  617. Laura - Goodbye LOST! I'm going to miss you! May 9th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

  619. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    they just showed the standings on Fenway’s board, adn it clearly shows NY in first place. Makes Hershiser’s earlier statement about if ARod & Teixeira heat up they’ll catch up with the Rays in a hurry even more ridiculous. :)

  620. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    I love AJ, but this was just a god-awful job. Sanchez is going to be used now, right? Well, he was supposed to back up Mitre. Who’s going to do that now? We also have Javy going on Tuesday – I expect to need a heavy dose of the pen on that day as well.

  621. CR9 May 9th, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    We can thank yet another HP umpire for affecting a game against us. Thanks Tim McClelland for gifting the Red Sox a victory they needed!

  622. substantive sustenance May 9th, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    imho, the M*A*S*H series finale didn’t quite match the episode when Henry Blake left the 4077 for home (I’m not going to spoil what happened there, trust me).

    for the recSeason Eight cliffhanger: Evil businesswoman Angelica Nero intends to kill J.R. and his cousin Jack for double crossing her, but J.R. has her apprehended by the police. Unfortunately, Angelica has already put her plans into motion. She has her henchman attach a car bomb to Jack’s car, which explodes with Jamie inside. After hearing this on the phone, J.R. runs out of his office to go to Jack’s apartment. As he leaves the office, Sue Ellen arrives in the other elevator looking for him. As soon as she enters J.R.’s office, a time bomb left by Angelica goes off, and the entire floor that houses Ewing Oil explodes, showering debris onto the street below. The scene then shifts to Pam in bed, the day after her marriage to Mark Graison. Pam wakes up to hear the shower running. Assuming it’s Mark, she opens the shower door, only to find Bobby Ewing, alive and well.

    Resolution: The events of the entire past year, beginning with Bobby’s death at the hands of Katherine Wentworth, were revealed to have all been a dream that Pam had. Therefore, none of the events of the previous season (including Pam’s remarriage and Angelica Nero) existed.

    Well, no one saw that ending coming. The acting in that one was also very good.

    A lot of people didn’t like the Hawkeye storyline in the finale, but if you watched every single episode of M*A*S*H, you could see how that could happen to him.

    Burnett was due for a bad outing. I didn’t think it would be this bad though. More like 6 innings 5 runs. Oh well.

    guys its not really worth getting too stressed out about this game. Last year at this time we were 0-6 against the sox, so 4-2 is pretty darn good.

    Also, this series is weird. I feel like usually the games are fairly close but this was 3 blowouts in a row…..

    From Wikipedia – ref Gardner

    In 2001, Brett Gardner attended the walk-on tryouts at the College of Charleston. After the tryouts, Coach John Pawlowski told the guys that he would contact them if they made the team. Without hearing a word from the coach, Gardner came to the field the next day for the first official practice for CofC, wearing his high school uniform. When Coach Pawlowski asked Brett why he was there, Brett told coach he knew he was capable of playing at the D1 level. Coach Pawlowski told Brett that he could stay and practice with the team, . . .

That does to an epi that Dick Van Dy ke was in (I LOVE DVD) – it was just so stupid and unfunny (and Sophia was really mean to Dorothy in that one). Also, an epi where Rose thinks she was felt up by her dentist – awful. In that show, the priests and school administrators pressured Dorothy to pass a high school football star in English so he could play a big game. I detested that teachers/priests/etc…would try to do that.

    Oh, the Dick Van Dyke as a clown episode. That one didn’t bother me. The Rose/dentist one was more creepy than anything else. The one episode that I NEVER watch when it’s on is the one where Rita Moreno plays the neighbor. The girls are hardly in that one. I think they wanted that to be a spin off, but it didn’t pan out.

    The game is essentially over now. Why not thrown Pena in the game and have him swing at a pitch and “lose” his back so it smashes Tim McClelland right in the head, then charge the mound and take out this freak who once faked cancer. It would only be right after the way his scumbag counterpart acted on Friday.

    Ray,

    I try to exhibit class, but sometimes you just get walked on…They can’t keep allowing your team full of classless fools to bully us around and cause injuries. It needs to end, and maybe severely injuring one of Beckett’s teammates would do the trick. Although he’s such a piece of David Ortiz (p oo), he probably wouldn’t care much one of his teammates got hurt because of his actions.

    Your a Sox fan, so admit that Beckett is a classless punk, and that he was purposely throwing at us on Friday…

    Ray,

    If that’s the case, then you’re one of the few. But the fact of the matter is, unless someone stands up and takes action (which SJ adamantly said should be done, and apparently no one had a problem with that), it will keep happening.

    Burnett is a basket case that can’t pitch on the road

    Even if Hughes outpitches him, AJ has to start game 2 in the playoffs because he is so inept on the road. Hughes on the other hand, thrives anywhere….

    I thought the last 4 seasons of DS9 were actually written better than just about any TNG episode save about 3 or 4. As for All Good Things…, I am not sure I can explain exactly what happened but I thought it was a fun episode that really highlighted how close the crew got to one another by the end of the show. And of course, the fact that it bookended the pilot by bringing Q back was pretty cool too.

  744. Jake the Snake May 9th, 2010 at 10:36 pm

  745. Jerkface May 9th, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    Andrew Marchand’s real tweet should be: “Being part of a WS winner has hidden AJ’s trouble at Fenway Park (which has not mattered)”

    He had a 3 ERA vs everyone other than the Sox at fenway, which includes all road games. And he had a 3.5 era at home, so he was obviously good on the road.

  746. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    I actually sent a comment about that in their live blog/chat tonight, something along the lines of “yeah, right, this is a big game”. They didn’t post it NOR my question about Phil, lol.

    Eh, I think NY sports radio will talk about the series as a whole, not just this game; who cares about this game anyway? I’m sure Phil will get mentioned; I guess stay tuned for Mike’d Up tonight and see what his thoughts are. I’m sure he will be pleased with the Yankees’ performance in Fenway.

  750. Mark May 9th, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    Well he does have a point

    AJ bombed in every start he has pitched in Fenway – 3 last year and tonight. His best start was 5 IP, 4 runs in the 2nd game of the season, the other 4 games here he was tattooed. After being lights out as a Blue Jay, he can’t get anyone out in Fenway.

    He bombed in Philly in the WS and in Anaheim in the ALCS in potential clinching games.

    I don’t know what other ‘big’ road starts he had as a Yankee. But the few he has had, he has bombed in. So technically, Marchand isin’t incorrect. Pitching against the Os in an empty stadium is different than pitching in Fenway on National TV.

    Sadly, this is what the media remembers about AJ. They don’t remember Game 2 of the WS, they remember his other bad big starts.

  751. Jeremy May 9th, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    Joel Sherman already wrote in his last column after AJ’s last start that it’s one thing to pitch against the Orioles, it is another thing to go into a hostile Fenway and pitch and AJ has to prove he can do that. So I expect him to harp on that tomorrow, same with the rest of the media.

    No, Mike hates AJ, but assuming he cared about games 1 and 2 as much (if not more) than game 3, he’s going to need to comment on those. I assume he’ll be mentioning Beckett………..

    Laura, I don’t think I’ve seen that one; I haven’t seen all of the AITF episodes………The ones with Maude were hilarious, lol. I remember one show where Mike put on his shoe and sock on one foot, then the shoe and sock on the other foot. Archie didn’t get why he didn’t put both socks on and then both shoes. Mike’s explanation sort of made sense, but I sided with Archie. The Sammy Davis episode was a classic………….and, of course, any time the toilet flushed, I had to laugh. Caroll o’Connor was a genius to be able to make a bigot into a loveable character.

    “Caroll o’Connor was a genius to be able to make a bigot into a loveable character.”

    He was a good actor who had good writing to work with. Norman Lear was a titan back in the day. He and Aaron Spellman stick in my mind for how they managed to have hit after hit after hit. Very impressive.

    Obviously he has serious issues. As someone who lost a grandfather to cancer, and watched my 18 year old cousin almost die as he was in the MedCopter to Boston with a brain aneurysm (which he miraculously survived), there is nothing funny about any of it. Get lost. There’s plenty of things you can be doing that would be much more useful to you. Start by donating to the Jimmy Fund and visiting children dying of cancer at Dana Farber.

    Laura, I always thought that was funny; didn’t the murderer’s care that they had a chance to get off if they went to trial?

    I loved Diagnosis Murder; Dick Van Dy ke’s character should have met and married JB Fletcher. However, I will say that I adored the men in her life: Len Cariou (Michael Haggarty), Wayne Rogers (Charlie Garret), Jerry Orbach (Harry McGraw). The woman was a man magnet even though she was basically celibate, lol

    Doreen, Dick Sargent had some really fantastic episodes, but I think you might be right. The problem with York’s Darrin was that he married Sam knowing her situation and he had no tolerance for it. I mean, he didn’t accept her, not really – he forced her to adjust to his life. That said, I think Sargent’s relationship with Endor was based on anger and meanness; I think she got a kick out of tormenting him. I don’t mean to suggest she didn’t like tormenting York’s Darrin/Donald/Dobbin/Dumbo, etc…….., but I think in his case it was simply because he was human; I’m not sure she really hated him.

    Erin Murphy’s Tabitha was about the most adorable child I have ever seen in my life.

    True. Except it was always “okay” if witchcraft got him out of a jam, wasn’t it? You hit exactly waht I meant about Sargeant – he relationship with Endora was difficult to watch and not funny. York and Moorehead did better with each other. Annoyance and frustration is easier to make funny than anger and resentment.

    Bewitched started in the 60′s, right? Still B&W. And a woman’s place was different then. So, Samantha having to order her life to her husband’s wasn’t out of synch with the times. What was great though, was she was still able to be her own person and find a balance, and she came off as the stronger, smarter one.

    It’s OK, pretty soon we’ll be playing the Orioles and Royals on the road and he will dominate them.

    Luckily we don’t come back to this slum until the last weekend of the year when we already would have clinched. So Burnett is safe until next year. It’s OK though, I’m sure he will pitch fine when we go to Seattle and Oakland next month…

    Talked about AJ and how puzzling it is that he is so bad in Fenway when he was so good there as a Jay. Wasn’t really negative… said we did what we needed to and we just need to keep winning series. Said the injuries are starting to mount and mentioned each injury, spent a decent amount of time on the upcoming schedule and stuff. Nothing at all basically from the first 2 games of the series.

    Mike, ok – that’s surprisingly rational for Mike; I assume he’ll get to the details tomorrow. Thanks!

    Joe Girardi show coming up…..

    Back to baseball.
    Was there ever a show set in Detroit?

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

    Not until tomorrow night when “The Idiots Of Detroit” premiere on here.

  1005. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    GB7 -

    Right – Meredith McRae.

    Wasn’t one of the girls married? I think the actor who played the husband was also a newlywed husband on the show “Mothers-In-Law,” with Kaye Ballard and – oh, man, what’s her name – Eve Arden.

  1006. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 9th, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    Let me just say that those in the organization that wanted Phil and Joba in the pen and Mitre as the #5 are incredibly ………..um, not smart.

  1007. Uncle Ellsworth May 9th, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    Detroit = Life After people

  1008. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 9th, 2010 at 11:59 pm

    And Roger Carmel and the guy who played Mel on the Dick Van Dyke Show rounded out the cast, except for the young bride and I can’t remember who she was.

  1009. Bronx Jeers May 9th, 2010 at 11:59 pm

    Sanchez gave up 1 hit and 1 BB in 3.2. The longest outing in his brief career.

    He’s 26 and only has about 30 MLB innings. Maybe they’ll keep him for this week as they are short 1 arm in the pen. He’s earned another look maybe next time in a tighter spot. Robertson’s currently a weak link and Ace’s back is balky.

  1010. m May 10th, 2010 at 12:01 am

    Today’s win is a salve on the Boston season that is…

    Onward and upward for the Yankees.

    Mike Minor played betty Jo’s crop dusting hubby on PJ.

    Wasn’t it Jerry Van Dyke on “Mothers-In-Law”?

  1012. LGY May 10th, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Anyone know what AJ said in his postgame?

  1013. Uncle Ellsworth May 10th, 2010 at 12:03 am

    Jerry Van Dyke was great on Coach

    ———————————–

    With Mitre and Javy going back to back I think they will send Sanchez down. They need another long man that can pitch tommorow especially if Aceves is still hurt.

    But Sanchez did do a nice job he will probably be back up at some point during the season.

  1015. GreenBeret7 May 10th, 2010 at 12:05 am

  1019. pat May 10th, 2010 at 12:08 am

    “Anyone know what AJ said in his postgame?”

    Not to take anything away from the Sox but anyone could have hit me tonight. It was a stinker.

  1020. substantive sustenance May 10th, 2010 at 12:09 am

    a quick ‘did you know’:

    did you know that Bill Fagerbakke, who played Dauber Dybinski on Coach, is also the voice of Patrick the Starfish on Spongebob Squarepants?

    My parents would be thrilled to see that all the $$$ they spent on my college education did not go to waste.

  1021. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 10th, 2010 at 12:10 am

    No, Jerry Van Dyke was in “My Mother the Car.” Dick Van Dyke wasn’t in Mother’s in Law, but the guy who played Mel (and I can’t remember his name) on the DVD show was one of the fathers-in-law.

    Mike Minor! That was the name of the guy. Yup. He was the son in MIL. The girl was played by an actress named Susan something.

    And I really can’t believe I remember all this. I don’t even think the show lasted a full season. :lol:

  1022. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 10th, 2010 at 12:10 am

    AJ, lol – always honest.

    Sox fans are going to be so happy, but they lost 2-3 to the Yankees and they needed to win 2/3 (at least).

    Good for Alex – enough with Braden.

  1023. GreenBeret7 May 10th, 2010 at 12:11 am

    Sanchez will be of little use to the Yankees for the next 3 days. Why keep him up. They’ll just dip into Scranton’s roster and replace him. Perhaps to bring in Ring or Nova. If it’s nova, somebody will be cut off of the 40 man roster.

  1024. pat May 10th, 2010 at 12:11 am

    Ledger_Yankees Indeed, Girardi said the Yankees will mull a roster move.

  1025. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 10th, 2010 at 12:11 am

    Doreen, his name was Richard Deacon….

  1026. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 10th, 2010 at 12:11 am

    Good response by Alex, there.

  1027. Uncle Ellsworth May 10th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    “Bill Fagerbakke, who played Dauber Dybinski on Coach”

    he also played Tom in The Stand and was doing something else recently

  1028. DT May 10th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    “Uncle. No more, guys.”

    I don’t get it.

  1029. GreenBeret7 May 10th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    Why is nobody talking about the “Home Run Haven” in the Queens. What a joke, huh?

  1030. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 10th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    They need a guy who can go 4 or 5 innings at a time………..I don’t think that’s Ring. Nice to see Sanchez do well, though.

  1031. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 10th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    thanks Betsy. I don’t know if I would have remembered that.

  1032. Uncle Ellsworth May 10th, 2010 at 12:14 am

    Mel on ALice? Vic Taback.

    Get Smart – don’t forget

  1033. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 10th, 2010 at 12:14 am

    Doreen, I’m on a roll, lol. I LOVE the Dick Van D y ke show………….

    In other words, “I give up.”

    Deborah walley was the daughter on MIL. Before being Gidget in the movies.

    You were either an only child or had very nice siblings if you don’t know what “Uncle” means.

    Deborah Walley. thanks GB7 – Maybe the character’s name was Suzie or something. I do remember her being in some Gidget movies.

  1040. Bronx Jeers May 10th, 2010 at 12:18 am

    Mission accomplished in Fenway. They took another series on the road. That’s all that matters.

    They’ve still only lost 1 series. Tampa just lost their 2nd. They’ve split 1 as well.

    AJ still has not lasted more than 5 innings in 5 starts at Fenway as a Yank.

  1041. GreenBeret7 May 10th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Pat M. May 10th, 2010 at 12:05 am

    She probably had to be if you lived in the neighborhood, Pat.

  1042. LGY May 10th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    In AJ’s starts before today he went to the 2-seamer 24.5% of the time. He used his curveball 22.4% of the time.

    Tonight he only used his 2-seamer 17.5% of the time. He used his curveball 29% of the time.

    I was doing other things during the game, so I was not really watching closely, but I wonder why he relied on his curveball more tonight and his 2 seamer less when he has had so much success so far this season doing otherwise.

    I know CB said he is taking a break from here but if he is lurking out there a post would be great! :)

  1043. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 10th, 2010 at 12:21 am

    It’s 4 in Detroit? Why did I not realize that?

    I guess 2 of 4 is okay?

  1044. Uncle Ellsworth May 10th, 2010 at 12:21 am

    An Always exciting series at Fenway and on to Mo-town. Where Ajax and Damon will inject some new drama. should be fun

  1045. LGY May 10th, 2010 at 12:22 am

    Oh and to add to that.

    He threw his 2-seamer for a strike 70% of the time tonight, so it seems he had control of it by that.

  1046. GreenBeret7 May 10th, 2010 at 12:23 am

    Yeah, Doreen, it was suzie. Remember when they premiered “Tabitha”? with Lisa hartman? what a disaster that show was.

  1047. vey May 10th, 2010 at 12:24 am

    I was impressed with Sanchez. The sox didn’t score another run , once he came into the game.
    He’s earned another relief opportunity. He was fun to watch.

    AJ kept throwing his knuckle curve, it was mostly balls, that kept putting them on base.

  1048. Alvin May 10th, 2010 at 12:25 am

    Maybe he didn’t think the old Boston hitters could hit his curve and they might take his 2-seemer off the monster?

  1049. Pat M. May 10th, 2010 at 12:25 am

    GB, She was a mean and intimidating wench…….Now Jack Parr was a cool guy as was Skitch Henderson…….They always paid well when it was time to shovel their sidewalks in the winter

  1050. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 10th, 2010 at 12:28 am

    GB7 -

    Never watched Tabitha. :)

  1051. Sore May 10th, 2010 at 12:29 am

    2\4 would be more than acceptable when you are starting Mitre/Vazquez in 2 games and the last game matches CC against Verlander.

  1052. Uncle Ellsworth May 10th, 2010 at 12:29 am

    Pat M did you grow up in TVLand?

  1053. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) May 10th, 2010 at 12:30 am

    I would take 2/4 in a heartbeat; the first 2 games look like terrible matchups. I’m not looking forward to this series as we’re going to have to deal with annoying posts on Damon and AJax.

  1054. tarantula May 10th, 2010 at 12:33 am

    Nick Johnson is the classiest waste of 5.3millionbucks. Itsn’t buy a lotter ticket bring better oddsof winning?

  1055. tarantula May 10th, 2010 at 12:35 am

    Does NJ get to keep guarnteed money even though he is soft, and foolish to accept a 3 yras contract.

  1056. LGY May 10th, 2010 at 12:35 am

    Maybe he didn’t think the old Boston hitters could hit his curve and they might take his 2-seemer off the monster?

    ——————————–

    Does not seem like that plan worked out so well :lol:

    If that was the plan.

  1057. antisocial scrooge May 10th, 2010 at 12:36 am

    so
    mitre vs willis
    javy vs porcello
    hughes vs bonderman
    cc vs verlander

    2/4 would be nice.

  1058. Sore May 10th, 2010 at 12:41 am
