Stunning loss at Yankee Stadium

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 29, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

When Indians starter David Huff was hit in the head by a line drive, Yankee Stadium was stunned into momentary silence, and the place remained relatively subdued as the Yankees built an early six-run lead against the Cleveland bullpen. It was not so quiet when the Yankees own bullpen blew that lead for a 13-11 loss to the team with the second-worst record in the league. Starter CC Sabathia was dominant early, but he allowed five runs in his last three innings before the bullpen imploded through a seven-run seventh. Joba Chamberlain got only one out and was charged with four runs.

    Game over.

    Just like I said 35 minutes ago.

  2. cs in la May 29th, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    What a terrible game, I hope the Yankees do something about this BP. Not sure what the solution is but anything is better than this.

  3. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    I blame this loss on Cervelli. If he had reached base in the 9th they win.

    Unfortunately he has post traumatic stress from CC yelling at him.

  4. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    Just 1 game. It’s not how you lose a game like this, it’s how you respond that makes the Yankees the championship team that they are.

  5. gyhu May 29th, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Chad, could they fit that many mega-losers into one club house?

  6. Bret the Hitman May 29th, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    CHAD,

    Ask Girardi if the team would consider demoting Joba to AAA to work on his mechanics full time. He is a wreck.

  7. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    I hope AJ wasn’t watching any of this.

  8. franmerrf May 29th, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    The Yankees should not need to score 14 runs to win a game. This was a horrible loss but we have to turn the page like the Rays did after a perfect game was thrown against them.

  9. chan ho's runs May 29th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    Screw this team.

  10. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    You can always tell just how little a person actually cares about the Yankees when after an upsetting loss like today, they’d rather take shots at other posters. Must feel gratifying for such disgraceful fans.

  11. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    I hope AJ wasn’t watching any of this.

    -

    the whole team saw it, they might never win again

  12. Bret the Hitman May 29th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    Trade for Joakim Soria or Carlos Marmol.

  13. Mike May 29th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    Worst loss I have ever seen any team have in any sport.

  14. raymagnetic May 29th, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    CC was yelling at Cervelli :???: I got questions and I need some answers. What happened?

  15. Al May 29th, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    Need Soria NOW

    Get rid of the garbage – Mitre, Marte, Park, Gaudin, Joba.

  16. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    If we trade for anyone or bring up I hope they don’t watch the highlights of this game on ESPN, they might get traumatized :(

  17. Mark- Can't touch this May 29th, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    Well thank you Joba on a day the CC pitched, on a day that Yankees had a 6 run lead twice, on a day where we faced the last place Cleveland Indians you allow 7 runs to cross the plate while getting 1 out. The sooner the Yankees organization realizes that Joba has become a poor mans I mean a really poor mans Kyle Forenswerth the better this team will be in the future. I need a drink.

  18. Blade May 29th, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    This team sucks. Like 2008 except with a better winning percentage. Sox are going to zoom past us in the standings soon.

  19. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    And that’s why you’re a true fan, and many of these others are not.

  20. Rover May 29th, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Such a frustrating team to root for.

    So much money, so little results.

    Why continue to watch? All they do is break your heart.

    .350 baseball over the past 3 weeks. Joba single handedly lost 3 games himself.

  21. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    True fans are loyal to the team.

  22. Mike May 29th, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Any one person who supports Joba on this site needs to be in a hospital getting a brain scan. If his name was Bruce Osborne he would be in AA ball. Just because he has a catchy name the Yankees keep him around. I know that sounds insane but I can not think of one single reason his lard butt is still on this team. He needed to ga oafter the Red Sox implosion. The mgmt of the bullpen is a total joke.

  23. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Players come and go, the interlocking NY will be forever.

  24. miami, fl May 29th, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    Joba can’t sniff Farnsworth’s jock.

    Farnsworth never had as disgraceful a performance in his career that Joba did today and against Boston.

    I’d take the real Farnsworth on this team over Farnsworth-lite anyday.

  25. the gay Yankee fan May 29th, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    LOL at all these “worst” loss ever comments.

    Seems like a worst loss ever occurs on a weekly basis now.

    Trust me folks, there’ll be more of these type of losses. It’s not the end of the world.

  26. SJ44 May 29th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    Hold open tryouts for 6 bullpen spots and get rid of Chamberlain.

    That’s a start to begin to fix what’s broken.

    The bullpen is an embarrassment at this point.

    Time to blow it up and start over.

  27. Seth May 29th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    Mike,

    Exactly right. Yanks are treating Joba like he is better than he is based on his name.

    Melancon comes up, gives up a run, and is shipped to Scranton the next day.

    Joba loses game after game after game and stays here for years.

    The favoritism towards Joba has cost us several games so far this year… games we might look back on come September.

  28. Billy D May 29th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    Tribe scores 13 with Choo putting up an 0-6. Who’d have thunk it?

  29. tala08 May 29th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    You think the Yankees are a hard team to cheer for? You need a life…or a nap.

  30. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    LOL! The team consists of players. And the loyalty is to whomever wears the interlocking NY.

  32. Allan May 29th, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    SJ,

    How can you hold tryouts when all of the contestants suck?

    Need to go outside the organization. Until we do, more losses like this one will come. We’ve already had 3 in the past 2 weeks, more are on the way with this garbage pen.

  33. t-rock May 29th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    Karma for releasing Randy Winn?

  34. Donnie - Will Meet Drew Carrey Under the O'Neill Banner May 29th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    Days like this, I really wish this wasn’t a “family” blog. I have some choice words for all of them. The offense scored a ton of runs, and then got complacent. They faced a guy who’s BAA was almost .400 and got NO hits off of him. The bullpen was even worse. Yes, the offense scored 11, and that should win ANY game, but when you miss opportunities to pile on, this is what happens. All of them deserve their share of this one. Just a miserable, miserable excuse for a game today.

    And yes, Joba needs to be gone. No control early in the count, backing himself in to a corner, and then forcing pitches right across the middle of the plate. Even .200 hitters aren’t going to be fooled. If trading him and Jackson to Toronto would’ve netted us Halladay, then we ROYALLY screwed that one up.

  35. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    All the “fans” bashing the entire Yankees roster aint real fans at all. That’s especially for constant Derek Jeter bashers!

  36. the gay Yankee fan May 29th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    Look on the bright side bridgejumpers. There is still a good chance we take 3 out of 4 in this series.

    If that happens, this loss as bad as it is, will just be a bad memory.

  37. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    The team consists of players. And the loyalty is to whomever wears the interlocking NY.

    That means you were loyal to Mark Bellhorn, which makes you a disgusting boston fan.

  38. SJ44 May 29th, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    Stop the idiotic pom pom waving.

    Go buy yourself a trophy if it makes you feel better as a “true” fan.

    Joba Chamberlain has pitched like garbage this year. Today was an embarrassment.

    If you can’t see that, post on a cheerleaders blog instead of a baseball blog.

    Some of you need to have your heads examined. You’re acting like we just lost Game 7 of the World Series. It’s May 29th. Calm down. Did Joba stink up the joint? Most certainly. But it’s not the end of the world. We live to play another day. If you don’t like this team, go root for another one. We won’t miss you.

    Joba is going to celebrate this performance of his with a nice trip to Del Frescos, compliments of Chan Ho Park.

  44. Bret the Hitman May 29th, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    Joba to AAA. If that doesn’t happen, this organization is the most stubborn, THEE most conservative bunch in the history of baseball. These snails in the front office need to MOVE and start getting things done.

  45. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    Fake SJ44

    We aint got nobody to replace Joba. It’s Joba or bust. Either you hope for him to get better, or you could not care less about the success or failure of the New York Yankees.

  47. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Win the next 2. Its very difficult to sweep a 4 game series, even against a bad team. Beat cleveland 3 out of 4. No big deal.

  48. KWAN May 29th, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Note to Girardi = Mitre is better than anyone in the pen not named MO. Stop using him as a mop up man.

  49. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Jerkface

    Oh, please. Come up with a better response than that! :lol:

    As long as Bellhorn was wearing the pinstripes, I was hoping for his success!

  50. Billy D May 29th, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Some cries for Soria. People interested in saying sayonara to Romine…..for starters?

  51. m May 29th, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    How can the other pitchers not be affected by that performance?

    Anyway, it’s a bummer. Would’ve been nice to notch a win. Just gotta hope Greinke & The White Sox can give us a hand today.

    As for Joba, I’m not calling him rubbish or to get him off the team. But something has to be done. It’s mental. It has to be. He has a certain inability right now to bear down. Yes, it was unfair to ask him on short notice to clean up that mess. Yes, Girardi should’ve “rescued” him a bit earlier. But how does one manage to be responsible for 7 runs in a 1/3 of an inning?

  52. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 5:46 pm

  54. Luke May 29th, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    CC went 7 against Boston and still lost. No shot unless the starter hands it directly to MO.

    No lead is safe with fat boy Joba in the bullpen.

  55. the gay Yankee fan May 29th, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    I always believe that tough losses and adversity during the season builds character and makes them stronger.

    If you’ve never had adversity, then when it happens, you are not prepared for it.

    But if you have, then they’ve been there before and then can overcome it quickly.

    This will help them later in the season.

    In fact, I’d rather they not have the lead in the division now but just stay close enough to be within striking distance and then make the move in August or September.

  56. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    Maybe I should give you my fan card, since you have never had one! :lol:

  57. Michelle May 29th, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    The bullpen is dreadful. It’s going to be impossible to win games if Robertson and Joba are going to be ineffective. Robertson can’t throw strikes and Joba just throws absolute meatballs over the plate. If Joba doesn’t get better he is going to have to learn in AAA. Everyone knows that he was rushed to the majors and there is a lot he still needs to learn. His main problems are his mechanics, learning how to pitch and not throw at times and also he seems to think his slider is still the 07 sliders and not the garbage one it has turned into. He is in love with it and doesn’t how predictable he is with it.

  58. Mike May 29th, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    I am friends with Butch Wynager and just asked him to make room for Joba in AAA. Told him I would pay the bus fare vai text. Will let you know if I hear back

  59. Rich in NJ May 29th, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    I dont want to continue the back and forth. I respect your opinions. I apologize for attacking you. Im in a horrible mood over today’s game, and hate seeing the repeated attacks on the team and players.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

  61. R-Tek May 29th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Brett,

    This organization IS stubborn. They think they are smarter than they really are. Joba is unfixable up here. He is just going to continue to blow games and blow games in the most heartbreaking fashion

    Soria/Marmol or bust.

  62. randy l. May 29th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    i don’t get really cranky until the yankees drop to 8 over .500. they’re at nine.

    they should be at 11.

    as this month goes on the pressure is going to build.

    it’s why a guy like posada is essential to this team.

    i have no idea what’s up with joba.

    he looks like he’s 45 when he’s twenty five.

    if he’s taking it for granted being a big leaguer on the yankees pat and sj44 are right that a minor league gig would get his attention.

    i would also play moeller more. with cervelli less is more.
    he’s going to start getting exposed playing so much.

    tiexeira needs to be dropped down .

    swisher and gardner saw 67 pitches between them. wow.

  63. SJ44 May 29th, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Stop the nonsense. It’s nit Joba or bust.

    He’s awful.

    You have 12 pitchers on your AAA roster.

    ONE of them should be able to get .200 hitters out on a last place team.

    We already know Chamberlain. Can’t.

    Get rid of him and try someone else.

  64. Pat M. May 29th, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Perfect. I think the nap is more like it!

    SJ IMPOSTER – YOU’RE the embarrassment here, using someone else’s name because you think that gains credibility for your impotent statements. SJ44 would NEVER suggest getting rid of a player just because he’s having a downtime. In fact he would be laughing in your juvenile face, suggesting that you take a bridge because we’d be better off without you.

    Chad needs to find a way to get rid of your phony self for good.

  68. Piano May 29th, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    This is why I wanted Joba in the minors. I didn’t think he deserved a spot on ‘reputation’ if they weren’t going to keep him in the rotation. 2009 Joba was very hit or miss. 2010 Joba is the same guy. Its worrisome.

    You posters say it’s just 1 loss, but in the AL East, the division will be decided by a handfull of games in Sept.. Losing games like this will make it difficult to win the East or the wildcard. The division is decided on games against .500 subpar teams.. This one hurts!!

  76. Mike May 29th, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    Tex does need to be dropped down and he gets a pass on offence because of his defense. Makes not sense to me. I am Orlando and have not heard and Girardi audio. Whats he got to say.” Oh the team was very shaken up by the line drive blah blah blah

    I’ve been saying it forever – send this fat loser where he belongs, to Scranton.

    Some time away from the bridge lights will help him. He will realize that he is a bad pitcher and if he doesn’t get better, he is going to take bus rides and get a minor league salary until he proves he wants to compete on this level.

    Teach him a lesson and it will be beneficial. If it’s not, then just dump him like the trash that he is.

    CC has tried how many times to get #5 now? He’s no ACE the # 5 pitcher is showing better stuff. CC held them 3 innings scoreless, then they scored every inning from 4-8.

  85. m May 29th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    trisha,

    That was a nice touch with the misspell there. ;)

    But, I do think that Pat M. will chime in at some point on Joba. He’s done it the last couple of times Joba’s blown it.

  86. Billy D May 29th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    “I hate fans support their team UNCONDITIONALLY, that’s just losers’ attitude”

    Yankees fans today will be Yankees fans tomorrow. If that’s unconditional, so be it. That said, I would agree that it is okay to call a spade a spade. This was a brutal loss and call out those who were in part responsible should be perfectly acceptable.

  87. Bret the Hitman May 29th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    There are no reasons on this good earth that Joba the Fat is on the New York Yankees. Not one. He must have caught CAshman out with a nother woman is all I can figure. It is just crazy. He is the absolute worst on a great team. He needs to get on a bus Gus and we need a new plan Stan.

  91. waka flocka May 29th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    What lesson does Joba need to be taught you ingrates? Demoting him because he is going through a rough stretch? Good god. Sometimes I wish that there was no ‘comments’ section on this blog. Its a terrible reflection of the fan base when any Tom, Dick, or Harry can jump on his keyboard and start reaming a player whose going through a down time. You’d think the Yankees are struggling to stay above .500 with some of the reactions to the teams play lately.

    They’re still winning roughly 60% of their games. Tampa Bay is not going to continue to steam roll through the league. If you want to complain, complain. But don’t be unreasonable and start exiling half the team when they go into a slump.

  92. Mike May 29th, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    Waka Not half the team just half the fat.

  93. Jeff May 29th, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    Brett,

    Hughes was clearly not valued as highly by the Yanks as Joba is, as evident by the treatment of the two potchers.

    Joba has done NOTHING to warrant staying up here, nothing. What, he has to blow 4 or 5 more huge leads before something is done about it?

    Why a different set of rules for Joba? Why does he get to continue to suck with no repercussions? Great example you are setting, Yankees. If you have some immediate success and are somewhat marketable, then you get to keep your job forever!

  94. Donnie - Will Meet Drew Carrey Under the O'Neill Banner May 29th, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    What lesson does Joba need to be taught you ingrates? Demoting him because he is going through a rough stretch? Good god. Sometimes I wish that there was no ‘comments’ section on this blog. Its a terrible reflection of the fan base when any Tom, Dick, or Harry can jump on his keyboard and start reaming a player whose going through a down time.
    ****************************

    This is not down time. This is who he is. All last year, the guy backed himself in to hitter’s counts by nibbling, or just flat out not controlling his stuff. He insists on using his slider, which isn’t working at all. His discipline on the mound is awful, and at this point, it’s more a surprise when he’s ACTUALLY effective, rather than the norm. How many more chances are people going to give him before they admit that it’s not a “down time”, and that he’s really not a very good pitcher?

  95. cs in la May 29th, 2010 at 5:58 pm

  96. Bret the Hitman May 29th, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    You prefer Joba learns his lessons at the expense of the big club? At what point do you admit that all the learning and teaching shouldn’t have to cost the Yankees wins.

    Perfect. I think the nap is more like it!

    SJ IMPOSTER – YOU’RE the embarrassment here, using someone else’s name because you think that gains credibility for your impotent statements. SJ44 would NEVER suggest getting rid of a player just because he’s having a downtime. In fact he would be laughing in your juvenile face, suggesting that you take a bridge because we’d be better off without you.

    Chad needs to find a way to get rid of your phony self for good.

  100. Cando May 29th, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    This situation is eerily similar to the Knicks with Isiah Thomas and Layden.

    Despite their screws ups, Dolan had blind loyalty to them no matter how awful they were and how negatively they impacted the organization.

    Same with Joba. Joba is being treated by Cashman like Isiah/Layden were by Dolan. Blind loyalty that was unwarrented.

  101. Ace May 29th, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    I do believe I just heard Girardi say something about CC’s game changing after Huff got hit.

    I will have to play that back.

    However happy I suggested it as a possibility because I can see already that there will be endless hours of goofing on it.

    Oh yeah, Girardi said after Huff got hit in the dugout they were “scared to death” because it was such a frightening thing to watch. Doesn’t sound like the “spit on my hands, rough and tough marine” mentality that a few posters tried to sell.

  104. Trade Joba May 29th, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    Maybe Joba is a secret Red Sox fan and is trying to purposely sabotage the Yankees?

    Is it disturbing anyone else how vulnerable this team looks at home? They can’t even hold 4-5 run leads, let alone come from behind or hit walkoffs.

    You upset that I have you figured out? :lol:

    I did open my eyes, from your posts about the Magic game, to the Yankees.

    You’re a stinky Red Sox fan!

    oh please, it’s one thing to root for your team, the reality (they win or lose) is another thing.
    again, I am not one of those ‘fans’ who agree with the team’s every move UNCONDITIONALLY.

    Magic vs. Celtics? I was rooting for Magic, and wished they could crush Celtics. But after their loser performance in first 3 games, the series is over. To me, Magic gave up again last night, they were pretty satisfied that they didn’t get swept.

    Now I hope Lakers can win the Final. But the reality is Celtics got better chance and I think Lakers will be embarrassed in 5 or 6 games.

  115. Michelle May 29th, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    Joba takes being on this team for granted, he has since day one. It’s about time they treated him like the way he has pitched. He is not going to advance as a pitcher if he never learns the stuff that he never learned in AAA. The organization never fully developed him and the Yanks are paying for rushing him now.

  116. RS May 29th, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    Aceves going down is what really hurt the team. You don’t realize how many innings get exposed to lesser pitchers when he’s not there to eat up 6 outs every couple days.

    The only thing I can come up with is that Joba’s wired differently. Or because he was so good when he came up?

    Anyway, he is one of the best 12 pitchers on the roster so whatcha gonna do?

    But I did think there was a time when they could’ve sent back to learn whatever he didn’t learn when he was rushed to the majors.

    Is Cashman an idiot?

  130. Allan May 29th, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Why shouldn’t Joba take being up here for granted? Cashman hasn’t given him a reason to work for anything. Always guaranteed a spot. Always spoon-fed and catered to. Made rules around him that hurt the team and killed the pen, etc.

    The Yanks catered to him and made him above the team for so long, now they are paying the price.

    The fact is, he is a fat, lazy pitcher with no motivation or drive. He came into camp out of shape in 08, following an off-season with a DUI. The Yanks have turned him into what he is today, so I don’t expect them to rectify the situation and send him down.

  131. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Is it the new LoHud standard that if a commenter says something another commenter dislikes then it must have come from an imposter?

    Was that the ‘real’ Trisha who called randy a ‘twit’ and then derided his livelihood? Or was that an imposter too?

  132. LGY May 29th, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Hi all. Haven’t commented in a little while or really watched much Yankee baseball. Tough week.

    But, I did catch the end of today’s game.

    Something Girardi said in his postgame made me cringe. Joba is our eighth inning guy or EIG as m would say and he has to get the job done.

    Why is being afforded this loyalty? Why is he getting this long leash? Where is the track record like a veteran player that he should get the benefit of the doubt?

    The point of having a young, cheap, and almost entirely internally developed bullpen is to have flexibility. Relievers are extremely inconsistent year to year and in general they are just bad pitchers. Joba is playing that role perfectly right now.

    I really cannot understand why the Yankees are being so cautious trying new pieces in the bullpen let alone being stuck to these ridiculous “roles” in the bullpen.

    What happened to earning your spot? You don’t get the job done, you get sent down or downgraded in your role and find out what else you’ve got in Scranton.

    Joba has done very little this season or really in his career to be handed the eighth inning. He probably does not even belong on the major league roster at this point.

    If he is one of the 12 best pitchers, it is by default.

  133. Brooklyn May 29th, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    Plump Joba might as well go out tonight and hammer down 6 cheeseburgers to plump up more. He won’t be used anytime soon. The guy is a walking Ponzi Scheme.

  134. McDonalds Worker May 29th, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    Bottom line -

    Joba is a fat, immature, lazy pitcher who will be playing for the Long Island Ducks in 2 years.

    Just another in the long line of individuals who wasted their potential in life.

    “How many brutal losses have we had at home this year so far? The White Sox game, the Sox game, both Tampa games, Twins game, today’s game.”

    Last year the Yankees were something like 80-3 when leading after 6 innings. I’m guessing not all of those 3 losses came at home. This year, they have already lost 4 home games when leading after 6 innings. Joba himself blew 3 of them.

    I also don’t recall any dramatic come-from-behind wins. Have the Yankees come back from a 5 run deficit this year? On the road? They have given that privilege to the freaking Indians.

  138. whoever May 29th, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    The two main problems we have right are:

    1. Not a single one consistent shut down reliever in the bullpen besides MO (even not him lately)

    2. Almost zero production from our 3 and 4 hitters. Cano and Swisher (& others on certain days) have carried the Yankees to their current record. Tex and A-Rod need to start earning their paychecks. A-Rod is getting great pitches to hit with Cano behind him and he (A-Rod) is missing them.

  139. Oddessy May 29th, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    LGY,

    Which is precisely the problem. They make plans around him and give him responsibility he has not earned, all because of his name. He has always had everything handed to him, undeservedly.

    If his name was Sharron Osbourne, he would be in the minors by now.

  140. Michelle May 29th, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    “Is it disturbing anyone else how vulnerable this team looks at home?”
    ——————–

    Not just at home the team in general. It’s obvious why. They are without 3 big bats. Not just 3 big bats but Matsui and Damon were extremely clutch. They replaced those guys with random characters. Guys that will get their share of hits but we still don’t know if they can get clutch hits. Also the bullpen is a mess. Last year Robertson and Joba were effective.

  141. RS May 29th, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    “They are 14-7 at home and only Atlanta has a better home record.”

    It’s a good record, but they could just as easily be 18-3 at home. I guess the problem I’m seeing is all the late inning leads they have blown. Especially against teams like the Twins, White Sox, and Indians who they usually own.

    (Lol, that just sounded like a rhyme).

  142. Kozan May 29th, 2010 at 6:15 pm

  143. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Apparently A-rod went to the hospital after the game but Huff was already gone. Despite worrying about Huff’s safety, A-rod was able to get an RBI single.

    It’s the new Lohud standard to assume an imposter because everybody has been impostered on here in recent days. But again, dont let the facts get in the way of an attack on Trisha!

  150. LGY May 29th, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    Pat M has called out Joba on several occasions on this board.

  151. m May 29th, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    lol, LGY. I didn’t come up with EIG. But I do use it often enough.

    Joba will surprise us all with a couple of sparkling outings. Of that I have no doubt. But one of the requirements of an EIG, in addition to being good, is consistency.

    Unfortunately, we don’t have any other options right now. Everyone is failing. Sadly.

    Another thing, too, is that Girardi (more so than other managers) is loathe to admit making a mistake.

    So, it’s a combination imo of no other candidates for the EIG and they don’t want to admit they made a mistake.

    Saying it’s a mistake is rather harsh. Especially since Robertson and Park have both failed. But it’s been trying. Huge leads have been wasted.

  152. terpbomber May 29th, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    Every-so-often there’s a frustrating loss like this with a bunch of good wins in-between, so typically it wouldn’t be an issue. But unfortunately, they’ve been making quite a pattern of these kind of games. They have what should be a comfy lead, then the bullpen blows it, and then it’s followed with a feeble rally.

    At least it’s still only May. As for Girardi’s comment, it reminded me something that Torre said years ago. I *think* this was when Jeff Weaver was on the team and was terrible both as a starter and reliever. When asked why Weaver was used at the most inopportune moments, Torre said that Weaver was a part of the team and that he had “no choice” but to use him…

  153. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    LGY

    That’s great. So we were both wrong in thinking it was a fake Pat M. She’s been wrong before, and she’ll be wrong again. That happens!

    But there is no need to attack her for thinking such. It was a perfectly reasonable thought.

    No, CR9, you don’t have it right at all. It’s okay for Trisha or anyone else to push any kind of theory they want to, but it’s also okay to respond.

    Pat M has made the very same point in the past, which is why I do not think it was an imposter, but we’ll find out either way in due time.

    And, for the record, Pat M has had plenty to say about Joba that would not fit in with the Joseph Goebbels approach to Yankee fandom that is being pushed here today.

    As for controversy, I think Trisha’s original comment was slightly more controversial than my repeating it — did you think it was one of those embarrassing moments that we should pretend didn’t happen?

    What GM is going to trade away his top farm chips for someone else’s lockdown closer and then ask him to be a set up guy who’ll eventually get closer $…

    C’ mon guys grow up already….as Cash said the answers are in that room already have to get these guys right and going. Out of 20 appearances Joba has has 4 bad ones and been very good to lights out in the others. I admit he needs to get his but into gear but Eiland has gotta earn his $ as well or maybe send him down til the ASB and make sure he gets right.

    KC would be the perfect fit for Joba. It’s the closest team to Nebraska and their AAA affiliate is in Omaha I think. I’d do Joba + Gardner for Soria in a heartbeat.

  163. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Does the statement beating a dead horse mean anything to you.

    If I ever saw someone beating a dead horse I might get post traumatic stress.

    “And it’s not just this one loss. This team just doesn’t feel like it did last year.”

    Of course it doesn’t. There are several new team members. Granderson. Park. Javy. No Damon. No Matsui. I don’t know why people thought that we’d get exactly the same results as last year with different people playing the roles.

  165. Billy D May 29th, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    “I think Joba, Eduardo Nunez, and Ian McAllister for Joakim Soria alone would work.”

    No, it wouldn’t. And who’s Ian McAllister?

  166. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    What’s worse, beating a dead horse or taking an unauthorized bit from Kim Jones’ pork chop?

    They’re both troubling images on this big BBQ weekend.

  167. champ809 May 29th, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    Bret you must really have a lot of time on your hands…..

    That is just ludicrous to even suggest some of these trades for either Soria or Marmol…

    grow up or at least try to think like a real GM!

  168. LGY May 29th, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    CR9,

    I don’t even know what attacking you are talking about. Like I said I have not even read the comments on here in several days. Hope everyone didn’t miss me too much ;) .

    Something that I think will make you happy though. Earlier this week, my dog got hit by a taxi and ended up crossing 3 avenues after without a leash, but she doesn’t even have a scratch on her! Amazingly lucky.

  169. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    Nick

    Theory? Controversial?

    So she thought that was a fake Pat M. She and I were wrong, apparently. Nothing controversial about it.

    Like I said, everyone has been impostered in recent days, so it’s not unreasonable to think an imposter was using Pat M’s handle.

  170. LGY May 29th, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Jerkface would beat a horse. Serial killers often abuse animals. The plot thickens…

  171. Bret the Hitman May 29th, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    For Soria or Marmol?

    Gardner + Robertson + any one player from this bunch:

    Joba Chamerlain-p
    Manny Banuelos-p
    Jose Ramirez-p
    Zachary McAllister-p
    Brandon Laird-3b
    David Adams-2b
    Slade Heathcott-cf
    Kelvin De Leon-rf
    JR Murphy-c
    Gary Sanchez-c

    OR any 3 player combo with one pitcher and 2 position players from the above bunch

  172. Tarheelyank May 29th, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    If I ever saw someone beating a dead horse I might get post traumatic stress.

    LOL. At least that was funny.

  173. California May 29th, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    Today’s bad news headlines:

    (1) Yankees Lose
    (2) Red Sox Won (Will Win)
    (3) Tampa Bay Won (Will Win)
    (4) BP “Top Kill” Not Working
    (5) Robertson Out Indefinitely
    (6) Joba Officially Becomes the Worst Reliever in the Major Leagues

  174. Billy D May 29th, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    “I’d do Joba + Gardner for Soria in a heartbeat”

    Of course you would. So would I. But the Royals wouldn’t. Joba’s arb eligible after this year. Royals will want no part of that. Catcher’s been a black hole for them for years. They’ll want Romine.

  175. m May 29th, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    Speaking of Kim Jones, maybe she should start innerviewing Joba? :P

  176. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    LGY

    You didnt attack her. Someone else did.

    And that is tremendously tremendous about your puppy!! That is awesome news!! Im really happy for you and your puppy! :)

  177. randy l. May 29th, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    “Was that the ‘real’ Trisha who called randy a ‘twit’ and then derided his livelihood? Or was that an imposter too?”

    nick in sf-

    does anyone really care about what trisha thinks besides CR9 and who cares what he thinks ?

  178. Mark May 29th, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    ………………………………….

    Sounds like a plan. Expand it some by adding Albaladejo, and Miranda with Joba and Gardner for Soria and DeJesus.

  179. Bret the Hitman May 29th, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    Billy D,

    Why do you keep reaching for Austin Romine?

    Keep off your grubby little mitts.

    :)

    We have JR Murphy and Gary Sanchez in that list I gave.

  180. m May 29th, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    I didn’t think that was Pat M because he didn’t mention the line on the Lakers. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. :)

  181. pat May 29th, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    “Did he wear the scarf?”

    Tom is using it this week but maybe he had the black and white check shirt on. :wink:

  182. Boss Ton May 29th, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    Ouch, boy that loss hurt today. Bad start and no middle relief. Who do the Yankees think they are? The Boston Red Sox? Bad teams losing to even worse teams!

  183. HughesTheAce May 29th, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    champ809

    It has already been stated in the rumor mill that the Yankees will try to pursue a reliever and a versatile OF come the trade deadline – so no – your statement that all the answers are in the room is NOT correct.

  184. Betsy May 29th, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    Wow, I’ve had no internet access from my hotel until now and I see that the Yankee blew another game? The more things change, the more they stay the same. I hardly followed the team at all the last few days, but it seemed like they were hitting their stride again. I see Joba was awful and that Robertson is hurt. This just doesn’t seem like our year.

    I was thrilled to see Granderson back, but Javy’s terrible performance is a real problem as he just can’t get anything going.

    Oh well…..Hope everyone is well!

  185. Mike May 29th, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    Here is abigger problem. The Yankees have lost their MoJo. Other teams know they can come back and the Yankees don’t think they can. This sort of head stuff is very important in sports. Big Big issue. Last year when they had all those walk offs it was catching, so is this mess. Spreading like a bad illness

  186. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    No, CR9, I wasn’t referring to Trisha saying “that is DEFINITELY not Pat M” as the contoversial statment — that was just silly (and as a tangent, is stating something as fact like that still just an opinion? I guess so?) — I was referring to her calling randy a ‘twit’ and mocking how he makes a living and how he also employs other people, presumably.

    And I have email confirmation that Pat M did make that post, so no imposter.

  187. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    “does anyone really care about what trisha thinks besides CR9 and who cares what he thinks ?”

    CR9 has some good sports insights from time to time, though it’s hard for some to notice them with some of the other stuff.

  188. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    :arrow:

  189. Jerkface May 29th, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    Imposter, Nick doesn’t understand how to use emoticons. Especially hard ones like that arrow thing.

  190. randy l. May 29th, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    i can’t sometimes can’t tell an impostor from the real person sometimes.

    once when cb was trying to be funny when nick in sf was bringing out his humorous side i told cb he wasn’t cb.

    cb and i went back and forth for a while before i believed him that he was himself.

    i wouldn’t be surprised that pat m would say joba should do a little minor league time or sj44 for that matter.

    one thing i know is that both will make it clear what they think. they’re both straight shooters.

  191. m May 29th, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    pat,

    I will be worried if and when one of the minimum guys wears the scarf!

  192. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Niether Nick nor any Nick imposters consider the arrow to be an emoticon and will continue to use the arrow symbol when appropriate.

  193. SAS May 29th, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Having been a true Yankees fan since before most of you were born, I have to agree being sent down would probably help Joba and the Yankees. He can not hold the title, ’8th inning guy’ the way he is pitching.

    Before the season started, a number of bloggers suggested that he start the season at Scranton. That wasn’t a bad idea then and it isn’t now. He could go down for as little as 10 days and get himself straightened out. My understanding is that the window to do this ends some time this summer, so send him now and get back an improved Joba.

    He may never be the pitcher we all hoped for, but he can’t keep blowing games up here. I think he will do better after a trip to the minors, but if we don’t find out now, we never will.

  194. Rick May 29th, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    I still laugh when thinking that some posters actually thought Joba Chamberlain was the heir apparent / future closer replacing Mariano.
    Not in this lifetime. Not until he learns command of a strike zone.

  195. Nick in SF May 29th, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    The real Nick in SF should know how to spell ‘neither’ though, now I/he/they don’t know what to believe.

  196. Bob Michaels May 29th, 2010 at 7:10 pm

    Bring Back Joe Page.

  197. Bob Michaels May 29th, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    Bring Back the MilkMan Jim Turner

  198. bringaway May 30th, 2010 at 5:59 pm
