Career vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m. / YES Network

UMPIRES: HP Kerwin Danley, 1B CB Bucknor, 2B Doug Eddings, 3B Dana DeMuth

WEATHER: Temperatures in the 60s. Very slight chance of rain, but the sky doesn’t look threatening.

HOME SWEET HOME: The Yankees are 13-6 at home this season, tied with Atlanta for the second-best home record in baseball. Detroit has the best home record at 14-6. The Yankees lead the majors in home batting average (.301), on-base percentage (.382) and slugging percentage (.502).

GETTING STARTED: Robinson Cano is batting .421 with six doubles and two home runs when leading off an inning. For the year he’s hitting .342, which is so far the highest pre-all-star-break batting average of his career.

TIME CHANGE: The Yankees have announced that the start time of their June 21 game against Arizona has been moved from 9:40 p.m. to 10:05 p.m. ET.

UPDATE, 7:19 p.m.: Striking out the side in the first inning. Not a bad start for Phil Hughes.

UPDATE, 7:31 p.m.: Hughes struck out the first five batters, then gave up a fly ball that Granderson caught in center field. So you have to ask yourself, what went wrong there?

UPDATE, 7:36 p.m.: Nick Swisher with a towering home run off the foul pole for a 2-0 Yankees lead. That was his ninth homer of the year.

UPDATE, 7:58 p.m.: Chad Moeller just missed a home run in his first at-bat. Hooked it just a little bit foul. I actually said out loud, “Are you kidding me?” while the ball was in the air. Apparently the answer was yes, I was being kidded.

UPDATE, 8:25 p.m.: Wow. What a catch by Trevor Crowe. I never thought he had a chance until the ball was in his glove.

UPDATE, 8:56 p.m.: Four-pitch walk to Juan Miranda with the bases loaded. Is this the Indians team from Major League? Brett Gardner followed with a sac fly and the Yankees finally have some breathing room, ahead 4-1.

UPDATE, 9:02 p.m.: Give Ramiro Pena credit. He just battled through an 11-pitch at-bat before striking out.

UPDATE, 9:09 p.m.: Russell Branyan does one thing really, really well. He just took Hughes deep to cut the lead to 4-2. Robertson is getting loose in the bullpen.

UPDATE, 9:20 p.m.: Two missed calls at first base tonight, both went the Yankees way.

UPDATE, 9:33 p.m.: Robinson Cano just crushed a grand slam, which led to a curtain call and an 8-2 Yankees lead. The next batter was Swisher, who was hit by a pitch, and when the camera zoomed in on his face at first base, the big screen in center field showed Swisher mouth one of the phrases you can’t say on television. The crowd managed to read his lips just fine. Pretty funny.

UPDATE, 9:45 p.m.: Hughes is done, and he’s in line for his sixth win. Sergio Mitre is in from the bullpen.

    Lets go Yankees!!!

  2. Icebird753 May 28th, 2010 at 6:57 pm

    I think Moeller’s the guy for the Yanks. Should club a grand slam twice and steal home in his last at bat

  3. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    There is no way to Sanit-ize the awful news that has hit our Scranton team.

  4. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    jerkface -

    I wasn’t trying to say that DFA-ing Winn would cause clubhouse strife. Didn’t even enter my mind. I know it’s the move they were bound to make. As Winn himself saw, the writing was on the wall. It’s not a surprise to anyone. But my point was really only to say it’s not necessary at all to talk about his demeanor or presence or anything of that sort, because the truth of the matter is we don’t really KNOW that stuff. Confine it to the performance on the field, because in this case, it speaks for itself. Randy Winn didn’t get the job done. When Grandy went down he had an opportunity and couldn’t capitalize. That’s really all it’s about.

  5. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    Not an off day for Nick, I presume :D

  6. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    wow that was an epic intro with Granderson.

  7. where is AROD ? May 28th, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    ARod is not in the lineup ? Why ?

  8. Sado May 28th, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    Early evidence of Winn’s apparent state of indifference?

    Notice all the eyes are on the scoreboard. And Winn’s? His mind is clearly elsewhere. Sourdough bread perhaps?

  9. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    # where is AROD ? May 28th, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    ARod is not in the lineup ? Why ?

    Go find out yourself.

  10. Mark in Tampa May 28th, 2010 at 7:02 pm

    For those complaining about the Yankee lineup, the Indians have 4 guys in there I have never heard of, and a couple guys I thought were out of the game altogether. Should be a low scoring affair, so I’ll predict 15-10 Yanks.

  11. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    Indians’ broadcast crew just dropped this nice stat: the Tribe has dropped 14 of 16 series openers.

  12. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    I love when YES cuts off Mike Kay!

  13. Sacfly May 28th, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    Welcome back GRANDY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:10 pm

    It’s been too long between In-N-Out visits… come on Phil!

    No 2-strike woes, please.

  15. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    I hope Hughes can pitch well.

    But I have prepared for the worst … hit me.

  16. JM May 28th, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    Arod just getting a regular day off, as per Joe G.

  17. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    If I was Phil I would throw my change

  18. Jerkface May 28th, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    Hughes has to be the best at getting 0-2 , 1-2

    It seems like every batter goes there

  19. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:15 pm

    He learned well from Joba.

  20. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    Notice CC on the top step of the dugout checking out the ruckus in the stands?

    Never once saw Randy Winn do that.

  21. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    atta boy Hughes

  22. S.A.--Serenity Now May 28th, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    Nice start Hughesie.

  23. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    Come on Yankee bats, it’s time to feasto on Fausto!

  24. Jason22 May 28th, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    Nice first inning for Phil, now lets have good at bats.

    Lets go Yankees.

  25. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    Hmmmm, maybe Randy Winn’s dugout poker face was just to not spoil Idol for his Captain?

  26. ron May 28th, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees’ shopping list for the summer includes two kinds of a players: a relief pitcher, and a hitter to presumably replace the perpetually injured Nick Johnson. Yesterday we heard they were likely to look for a versatile outfielder, which I guess could help form some kind of four-headed outfielder/designated hitter monster. As for the bullpen … meh. I hate trading for relievers just because they’re so volatile. Why give up an asset for complete unpredictability?

    Is it just me, or does it seem like a summer rumor season started a little early this year? ·

  27. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    That was not a strike.

  28. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Just go the other way Tex!

  29. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    There is not anybody over on the left side of the infield. If he just poked a couple over there, the defense would have to respect it.

  30. Paul Potatoe May 28th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    It’s too easy to get in Tex’s head and doesn’t every team know it.

  31. ac1 May 28th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    wow. 4 Ks 1 1/3.

  32. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    That was a nasty cutter with some good movement.

  33. MG May 28th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Phil is just philthy tonight, his breaking pitches are really sharp.

  34. igotid88 May 28th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    AAs much as I wanted 27ks for Hughes. That 1 pitch out was pretty good too.

  35. igotid88 May 28th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    As much as I wanted 27ks for Hughes. That 1 pitch out was pretty good too

  36. Sado May 28th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    I responded to your email.

  37. MG May 28th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Carmona seems to be back to near-2007 form, he was really tough back then…

  38. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    The Red Sox have already salted away their game. It’s 3 – nil in the first.

  39. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    He was out

  40. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Cano was out. Wow. We got a cheap call.

  41. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Is that a first for Robi??? Go! :)

    (I don’t care if they got the call wrong)

  42. Patrick May 28th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Thank you for being awful C.B. Bucknor!

  43. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Swisher!!!!!

  44. MG May 28th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Robbie is now batting 1.000 lifetime as the cleanup hitter…

  45. Patrick May 28th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Holy crap. I have to see a replay but that looked headed for the top deck if it doesn’t hit the pole

  46. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    NEWLY ENGAGED SWISHY GOES DEEEEP!!!!

    2 pointer! SWISH!!!

  47. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    LAUNCHED BY SWISHER!

  48. Rich in NJ May 28th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Yeah, Swish is baaaaaack.

  49. MG May 28th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    that was crushed by Swish, he has improved so much in the past year he could be the modern version of Paul O’Neill for the Yankees

  50. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    BASE HIT for JUUUUUUAN

  51. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    very odd comment
    “responded to your email”
    who is this person????

  52. ac1 May 28th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    a multi run inning?

  53. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    LOL @ Frankie and Swishy!

  54. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Swisher and Cervelli are definitely hot dogs but they’re so perfect for this team.

  55. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    mlbnetwork is giving Swish and Hughes a lot of love.

  56. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Speaking of hot dogs, Mike Kay used the phrase “cutting the mustard” like 10 times in the 9th inning yesterday to describe Orlando Hudson. Ridiculous Mike Kay.

  57. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    That HR by Swish was a triple decker if it doesn’t hit the foul poll.

  58. sunny615 May 28th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    Is there a AAA replacement for Pena? Man he’s horrendous at the plate.

    Why isn’t Gardner tryig to steal anything??

  59. Rich in NJ May 28th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    very odd comment

    What brilliance:

    Angel Berroa May 28th, 2010 at 3:45 pm
    Disgusting lineup, loss

    YankFanCA May 28th, 2010 at 3:47 pm
    This is the worst lineup of the past two weeks.

    Matt May 28th, 2010 at 3:53 pm
    Once again, Girardi starts Juan Miranda instead of Thames against a sinkerballer just because he throws with his right hand. You have to realize how your players match up against certain kinds of pitchers, and a lefty hitter who tries to pull EVERYTHING is not going to be successful against a pitcher like Carmona.

    steveoh May 28th, 2010 at 3:57 pm
    That lineup is pathetic. I know Cervelli needed a break, but A-Rod at the same time?

  62. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    Come on, KC.

  63. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    Nice play-by-play for Jack Curry.

    Maybe Kay can have some more days off too.

  64. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Someone please hit Wakefield. Please.

  65. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    That’s some gold glove work by Tex.

  66. MG May 28th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    they are talking about Jose Lima’s funeral on YES-I played golf with ‘Lima Time’ once when he was with the Tigers, he was just a genuine character who lived life large, just a really good guy.

  67. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    I would pay Kay to have an off day! Trying to channel my inner Nick :|

  68. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Hanging curve.

  69. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Phil again can’t put away a hitter when up 0-2.

  70. Cashman needs to go May 28th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    heres a thought – remember last year when AROD was sat for 2 games in a row in Miami to get some needed rest and clear his mind a little? And when he came back he started ripping the cover off the ball..

    well if the yankees win tonight (or even not) wouldn’t it be a good idea to do that again only to see if history can repeat itself..

    also if it works for AROD maybe Tex should be the next one to get a few days off on the bench

  71. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    0-2

  72. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    mystery no more
    though he called himself Sado
    the Bronx jeers rang clear

  73. MG May 28th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:49 pm
    Phil again can’t put away a hitter when up 0-2.
    —————————————————————
    He’s already put away 5 hitters in less than 3 innings, you aren’t very bright…

  74. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    So predictable.

    0-2, then a curveball in the dirt. Every single time.

  75. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    One hit and 5 strikeouts over 4 innings isn’t chopped liver. 4th inning wasn’t as sharp as the first 3, but stlll a good inning.

  76. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    What a LOSER!! Kevin Millar is right next to the Sox dugout, and is calling over Tito, to talk to him. :|

  77. sunny615 May 28th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Changeup coming ??

  78. Patrick May 28th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Holy crap Swisher’s fiancee is hot

  79. Jerkface May 28th, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    0-2, then a curveball in the dirt. Every single time.

    Thats actually the first time tonight he has thrown a curve immediately after going 0-2.

  80. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Doreen

    We are at the end of 3 pitching innings :P

  81. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    “4th inning wasn’t as sharp as the first 3, but stlll a good inning.”

    A warning from the future?

  82. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Waht a shame!!!!!!

    That would have been SOOOO cool. Drats! :)

  83. Bronx Jeers May 28th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Did you see Alex on the bench looking totally disinterested?

    The inner Winn surfaces?

  84. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    They should show some footage of LaTroy Hawkins failing to get more cheers.

  85. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Nick =

    Yeah, I’m rushing ahead.

    :oops:

  86. pat May 28th, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    Nice to put on the TV and see the Yankees have a lead. :smile:

  87. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    We better hope for a Teixeira walk here, because he AINT hittin a HR.

  88. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    I hope Granderson can reinvent himself with the Yankees the way Swisher did. Swisher looks like an all-star quality player.

  89. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    KC finally did something relevant.

  90. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Kind of, that is.

  91. Benny Blanco May 28th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    looks like tex is starting to come out of it.

  92. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    And we REALLY need Tex to heat up. Nice hit Tex :)

  93. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    We better hope for a Cano single here, because he AINT hittin a HR.

  94. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Come on, Cano.

    Hit one, for me.

  95. Patrick May 28th, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    I think Cano is due for a dinger

  96. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    Damn it!

  97. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    :(

  98. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    KC has Wakefield at 55 pitches in the 3rd with 2 out, 2 on, and 2 in.

  99. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    Tex is amazing at 1st lol

  100. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    Wow – great play by Tex!

    (Seems like we’re saying that a lot lately!)

  101. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    That look that Tex had on his face when he caught the ball is a lot like the look I had on my face at the end of LOST.

  102. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    Teixeira never took his offensive struggles out to the field with him. Speaks volumes about his profesionalism.

  103. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Looks like Indians will take the lead this inning :(

  104. 1421: The Year China Discovered America May 28th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Come on, Phil.

  105. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    I hope we can get out of this inning unscathed, and Doreen’s foreseeing of a rocky 4th inning is mistaken!

  106. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    Damn it! This is Doreen’s fault :mad: **** *** **** *** ****

    ;)

  107. Michelle May 28th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    Hughes is really missing his spots in this inning. He is lucky that Tex is such a great 1st baseman the Indians have hit absolute shots to 1st base.

  108. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    Phil is falling in love with his fastball again. I hope Moeller can lure him out of it.

  109. Joba Tips his Cap May 28th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    base will be loaded?

  110. JM May 28th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    all with two outs. argh

  111. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    I’m afraid to ask Doreen what happened in the 5th inning.

  112. JK May 28th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    Hughes is pretty good tonight with the cutter, he’s not going too crazy

    37 Fastballs
    2 Changeups
    12 Curveballs
    10 Cutters

  113. Joba Tips his Cap May 28th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    # CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    Teixeira never took his offensive struggles out to the field with him. Speaks volumes about his profesionalism.

    this is the least he can do

  114. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    Nice Pitch!

  115. RalphieD (OPPC) May 28th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    wow…thats showing confidence in your curve right there

  116. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    He needs to get the curve over here.

    and he does

    K

  117. Joba Tips his Cap May 28th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    good pitch!

  118. JK May 28th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Hughes curveball & cutter use should be equal and he’s doing that this game

  119. JM May 28th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    good job, phil!

  120. igotid88 May 28th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Come on Yanks. Take some pitches next inning. Give Phil a breather.

  121. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    :oops: :oops:

  122. Michelle May 28th, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    Good job by Hughes getting out of that inning with only 1 run. But it’s unreal how many foul balls batters hit against him.

  123. Rob B (Never a Gardner Doubter) May 28th, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    Hello all. Good to see Swisher isn’t having the same issues as last season hitting HRs at home vs on the road. He’s pretty even; 5 road, 4 home.

    It would be nice to see them string some more hits together, though, to give Hughes some more run support.

  124. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    OMG!!!!!!!

  125. Carl May 28th, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    Even Yankee stadium gave him a hand wow!

  126. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 28th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    That was just not fair!!!!

    Great catch, but not fair at all.

  127. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    Web gem.

    Miranda robbed on that one.

    On the plus side, his swing looks good (when he makes contact)

  128. Michelle May 28th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    Damn, I thought that was gone. Miranda has hit a lot of balls really hard recently.

  129. Rob B (Never a Gardner Doubter) May 28th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    It WAS a nice catch. Can’t knock a guy for giving up the body like that. Even if it does suck for the Yankees.

  130. JK May 28th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    Give a rookie a break! you can’t be making catches like that lol

  131. Bret the Hitman May 28th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    Is Gardner magic disappearing?

  132. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    I did not see it.

    Was it a HR that got taken away from Miranda?

  133. SJ44 May 28th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    At the Tampa-Bradenton game…..

    Adam Warren didn’t have it tonight. Gave up 5 runs in 2.2 innings. Had trouble with fastball command tonight and Bradenton took advantage of it.

    The nephew is 3-3 tonight and is now hitting .331.

    6-1 Bradenton after 4.

  134. Joba Tips his Cap May 28th, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    LOL, WB Mason, what a tool.

    I was thinking to try it, after I watched the commercial I changed my mind.

  135. JK May 28th, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    Bret the Hitman,

    He’s probably tired, which is why he’s not running as much either. With Granderson back they can give Gardner more rest in LF now.

  136. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    Great news on the nephew!!

  138. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Bases loaded nobody out and the Red Sox just magically wiggled out of it again with 0 runs.

  139. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Yes!!! They didnt wiggle out of it with 0 runs!!

  140. whoever May 28th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Agree JK, Gardner does seem a bit run down. Maybe slumping now, but he sure has done one heck of a job and been an important player for the Yankees with their injuries etc.

    He needs and deserves a break; not worried about him.

  141. blake May 28th, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    That was an unbelievable catch..one of the best I’ve seen this year by an outfielder.

  142. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    It’s amazing how sweaty Wakefield’s neck gets for a guy who throws 75 MPH.

  143. SAS May 28th, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    Very nice

  144. JM May 28th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    KC ties the game, 5-5, bases loaded again, this time with two outs

  145. Michelle May 28th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    I think the guy pitching for the Indians tomorrow is a lefty…so Gardner should definitely get the game off. I am sure he can use.

  146. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    YES!!!!!!

    A Grand Slam off Tim!!

    The Sox did not wiggle out of it!!!!!!!

  147. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Maybe Wake was sweaty ‘cos he could see into the future too.

    Grand slam, 9-5 KC.

  148. timo May 28th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    There was an Indians-Rays game where Crowe didn’t come up with a diving catch on a ball in front of him and it led to a Rays’ win. I was thinking then that the Indians would be hurting for CF defense with Sizemore out and this new guy in.

    Of course, Crowe then makes the catch of the year against the Yanks.

  149. JM May 28th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Betancourt hits a grand slam off Wakefield. KC up 9-5

  150. pistol pete May 28th, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Winn dfa’d, nice job by Cashman, we needed a part time outfielder who could hit right handed and Cashman plucked Winn. I barked all winter about this. He was finished last yr especially vs leftys. He hit 154/183/200 in 125 at bats right handed the lowest level since 1954 for a player with over 100 at bats. And Cashman signs him, couldn’t believe it, he didn’t make it to Memorial Day. We still need a bat bad.

    Davies cheated out of strike 1 in a key spot in the Sox game.

  219. blake May 28th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    JK,

    I agree Torre should have pulled them off the field, he’s admitted as much but I think the umpires should also have taken action.

  220. sunny615 May 28th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Isn’t there a better replacement in AAA than Pena. I mean I know he’s a defensive marvel, but someone with at least a .200 would be nice.

    Not a great outing by Hughes… too many HRs and 5 hits to this lineup is wayyy too much. We scored some runs so he got away with it but we need a little better from him in his next starts.

  269. ben May 28th, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    Holy crap, how much money does CB have on the Yanks tonight?

  270. CR9 May 28th, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    CB Bucknor cheated the Red Sox repeatedly in the ALDS last year. Maybe CB is a Yankees fan? :)

  271. Nick in SF May 28th, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    Uh, what?

    Eight strikeouts, one home run and six base runners over 7 innings isn’t good enough for you?

    Is there any need for that comment? Also, there is not an Indians fan that gives 10% of the effort for the Indians that I give for the Yankees and every other NY team.

    Whoa there CR9, I just meant that if there is a fan on an Indians blog that feels the same way about the umpires that you do, that person is probably going out of his mind with these CB calls.

  288. blake May 28th, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Granderson automatically makes this team better in so many ways, offensively, defensively, on the bases…

  289. JM May 28th, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    I think everyone on this blog can agree on that. There is nothing worse than an animal abuser! How anyone can hurt such innocent little things is beyond my comprehension.

    My 2 big puppies were abused when I got them several years ago. My chihuahua (while not confirmed) I believe was abused as well.

    There is no greater joy in life than to take an abused animal and give he/she a great home that they can learn to love life in.
