    does this game matter

  2. chris May 30th, 2010 at 10:28 am

    BTW, Nadia Petrova just beat the “American Porn Star” at French Open.

    Hallelujah !

  3. Ace Ventura is better May 30th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    our ace gets his A_$_$ handed to him by the worst team in baseball

    phillies ace throws a perfect game

    and the yankees could have had the phillies ace for joba the fire starter and their so called 20 yr old stud catcher who can?t hit a AAA pitch

    nice cashman

  4. russian spy 5 May 30th, 2010 at 10:31 am

    I bet Joba could pitch a perfect game in the NL, too.

    Disagree?

  5. baseball jesus May 30th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    cervelli out is a tellling sign that it was not more than just signs. Cervelli has to understand the guys that throw the pitches are the ones that hold the power. So go along to get along.

    Moeller? jesus girardi can we have on game where we don’t have an instant out.

  6. Eric May 30th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Bar CR9 peanently from the blog for that bigoted remark

  7. nice catcher today, huh ? May 30th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Indians pitching stinks…we score in double digits again today and win easily

  8. JM May 30th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    Heading out for the day so I will miss the game. Maybe just as well as I had the “pleasure” of watching the Joba meltdown yesterday and almost threw my shoe at the screen. LOL. Let’s go Yankees! Get rid of the bad taste from yesterday.

  9. Mark in Tampa May 30th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    “I bet Joba could pitch a perfect game in the NL, too.”

    I wouldn’t even bet that Joba is capable of throwing 3 strikes before 4 balls 27 straight times with no batter right now.

  10. nice catcher today, huh ? May 30th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    let the imposters play !

  11. TMZ May 30th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    TOR is right on our rear end. Better start winning some games.

  12. Macfan May 30th, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Is there a reason why Chad Moeller is back in there, oh gee Cervelli needs another rest day.

    Girardi is the king of micro managing to the last letter.

    Yesterday was the cream of the crop.

  13. russian spy 5 May 30th, 2010 at 10:37 am

    Why so enamored with Halladay?

    He was good but not close to great in the AL. Awful against the Red Sox.

    So he got lucky against a toothless marlins team.

    So what?

    I’m not impressed.

  14. Kovar May 30th, 2010 at 10:37 am

    Just took my morning Joba.

    Now for the show and shave and I’m ready for the day!

  15. RSM May 30th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    Eric,
    Come on, are you really that dull? Obviously that’s not really CR9, but the “imposter”.

  16. Macfan May 30th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    Came across this, our bullpen is absolutely a disaster so far this season.

    *First game of the season, 7-5 lead in the 7th inning in Boston, bullpen allows 3 earned runs Yankees lose 9-7

    *Angels series in Anaheim, tied game in the 8th, Chamberlain gives up a 2 run HR in the 8th to Kendry Morales, Yankees lose 6-4

    *@ Baltimore, Hughes leaves after 5.2 IP with a 1 run lead, 2-1, bullpen gives up 3 runs, Yankees lose 5-4

    *White Sox series, 6-5 lead in the 7th inning, bullpen gives up 2 earned runs, Yankees lose 7-6

    *Minnesota series at the Stadium, 3-1 lead in the 7th inning, Yankees bullpen gives up 5 runs in the eighth, lose 6-3

    *Boston series at the stadium, 7-6 lead in the 8th inning, Yankees bullpen gives up 3 runs in the 8th, offense had to score 4 in the 9th to win the game 11-9

    As if the previous night wasn’t enough to blow the game, the very next night, 5-1 lead in the 8th inning, bullpen gives up 6 runs combined in the 8th and 9th innings, Yankees lose 7-6

    *And the coup de grace of it all, yesterday a 10-5 lead in the 7th inning and the bullpen allows 7 earned runs in the 7th and 1 more in the 8th for good measure, to lose the game 13-11

    The team bullpen is 24th of the 30 teams in the majors. Yuck, makes my stomach turn.

  17. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 30th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    Thanks to everyone who participated in GTLU this morning. There were no winners today.

  18. Mark in Tampa May 30th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    “Indians pitching stinks…we score in double digits again today and win easily”

    Their pitching stunk yesterday, too.

    With the BP the way it is right now, there are no easy wins unless the starter can go 9, or at least go 8 and hand it off himself to Mo. There is no lead that is safe with this group.

    Do you really feel comfortable with a 5,6, 7 run lead when the pen has to pitch from the 6th inning on? I don’t.

  19. Ace Ventura is better May 30th, 2010 at 10:39 am

    watch halladay shut the yankees down (as he always does) when he faces them in a few weeks

  20. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 30th, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Since there were only 4 participants in today’s GTLU, I am not going to count the results.

  21. Bronx Jeers May 30th, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Moeller had some good swings on Fri.

    Let’s not get our panties all in a wad over him being in the lineup. For once.

  22. Billy D May 30th, 2010 at 10:40 am

    “Bar CR9 peanently from the blog for that bigoted remark”

    That’s a fake. CR9 is way out there with his conspiracy theories and such, but he doesn’t post stuff like that.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I literally wanted to punch Joba in his fat, round pie face after watching that horror show yesterday. That was an ugly, ugly loss and the Yankees lost ground with Tampa winning, Toronto winning, Boston winning, by throwing away an easy win at home up 5 runs in the 7th inning against one of the worst teams in the majors.

    I have 0 confidence in our bullpen, it is the only aspect of this team I have no faith in moving forward and improving.

    Kendry Morales enters the Bill Grammatica Hall of Shame by breaking his leg on the walk-off GS celebration. Out 10-12 weeks minimum.

  27. O's May 30th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    CR9 is a weirdo.

    Please ban him, Chad. You should have done that a long time ago.

    Grant us that favor will you?

  28. Rob NY May 30th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Wait a second… Halladay was good but not great in the al? Is that a serious comment? I can’t imagine it is because he DOMINATED the american league and the east in particular.

    Wouldn’t shock me one bit, stink against the Red Sox per usual and dominant against us per usual in his Toronto history.

  31. Mark in Tampa May 30th, 2010 at 10:44 am

    They showed the obligatory lowlights of the ’07 bug game yesterday. Amazing how much more in shape that Joba was. Usually players look different on old highlights, but normally you are seeing 15 year old footage, not 2+ years.

    If he has not been motivated to improve himself by the last 2 years of failure as a MLB pitcher, I am not sure it is going to happen. Maybe they can find a gullible GM to dump him on.

  32. Rob NY May 30th, 2010 at 10:45 am

    The board is looking ugly today, I think I’ll head somewhere else for the weekend. Things have gone down hill when you can’t even lurk. Good luck with this mess to any people who are here to actually discuss baseball.

  33. Wanderer May 30th, 2010 at 10:45 am

    Russian Spy,

    Do you watch baseball? Halladay has been one of, if not the, most consistently great pitcher the last 5 + years. Not impressed? Get out. That game is not the impressive thing about his career, it’s the sheer effectiveness and durability he provides.

  34. Erin May 30th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    JackCurryYES When Huff arrived at Stadium today, he showed bruise on his head to at least one teammate

    JackCurryYES Huff said he was very appreciative of ARod calling him after the game

    Its amazing what Joba Chamberlain has become, right now he couuldn’t even sniff the jocks or shine the shoes of Phil Hughes, when Hughes was in the bullpen or now that Hughes is starting.

    Compare Hughes in the bullpen to Joba
    Compare Hughes in the rotation to Joba

    Its amazing the difference in confidence and results for the team.

    Joba is tub of lard on the mound now. I notice he looks even fatter for sure.

    Yesterday when he finally got the 1 out, 4 runs too late, he actually was beginning to try and strut off the mound, but managed to halt himself while the crowd tore him a new one for that disaster on the mound.

    Joba has to be the most overrated young player in the game today. His numbers so far this season stinks for a setup man

    21.2 IP, 23 H, 14 ER, 8 BB, 27 K, 1.43 WHIP, 5.82 ERA, .264 Batting AVG against

  36. Phil Columbus May 30th, 2010 at 10:52 am

    The Yankees need to light up Justin Masterson today. LH hitters are hitting .383 against him. I’m not saying this is a must win but not to win this series against this pitiful Indians team is ridiculous. I’m not a Joba hater, but either fix him or get rid of him. No longer can he be given any more rope. IMO he just can’t handle pitching for the Yanks in NYC. Not everyone can.

  37. RSM May 30th, 2010 at 10:52 am

    They showed the obligatory lowlights of the ?07 bug game yesterday. Amazing how much more in shape that Joba was.

    I noticed this also. He did appear to be in much better shape then. It wasn’t that long ago, so I don’t think the difference can be attributed to normal aging.

    After watching that game yesterday or that horror fest rather, who wouldn’t be steamed.

    Its one thing when the Yankees lose getting beat by good pitching over the course of the game, but yesterday at home against one of the worst teams in the majors and you blow a 5 run lead. That cannot be excused away by anyone.

    In the Minnesota game with the grand slam given up, I could say Twins were due for a win, but to lose like that to the Indians, seriously.

  39. randy l. May 30th, 2010 at 10:57 am

    glad to see moeller in there.

    we’ll likely not get anything straight on it because it’s an in house thing, but clearly yesterday sabathia and cervelli had a thing going on.

    it might be as simple as sabathia was hot and cranky and pitching lousy and cervelli was the closest thing to aim the anger at, but you could see it on tv that there was something going on.

    it’s why i said earlier i hoped moeller would start today.

    i’m guessing at some point that cervelli got a little too full of himself and overstepped the young player/veteran player line.

    baseball has strong unwritten rules about that and whether fair or not they are there. cervelli is likely going to have a very long career ( more than 10-12 years) and this bump in the road with sabathia is just part of that seasoning process.

    i didn’t think girardi would do it with burnett out on the bump though.
    shows me girardi is sending a little message too.

  40. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) May 30th, 2010 at 10:58 am

    Moeller is probably starting today because Cervelli took a foul ball off his right shoulder yesterday not because of any issues with CC.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    I surmise its just laziness in his work habits and approach to the game,

    Joba strikes me as someone who thinks he has made it and thus has slacked off in numerous areas instead of trying to get better.

    That is inexcusable for a 25 year old professional.

    Miguel Cabrera had that issue as well with the Marlins and then Detroit, he has finally gotten himself back in shape and is having a monster season so far.

  42. Kovar May 30th, 2010 at 10:59 am

    Looking at Joba’s background, it’s not too hard to figure out what’s going on:

    He comes from a dirt poor family. Now that he has some money, he’s partying his ass off.

    If he had any modicum of intelligence he’d realize that he’s actually costing himself huge money down the road.

    New Post: Posada hoping to return this week

  45. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) May 30th, 2010 at 11:01 am

    CC was the blame yesterday not Cervelli. It’s interesting to see Posada supporters against AJ and Joba last season are now lined up to blaming Cervelli on basically the same issue.

  46. Kovar May 30th, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Chad Moeller is the least of the Yanks’ problems right now.

    The bullpen is costing them wins that should have been in the bag. That’s a HUGE problem.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Could very well be the case. The sad aspect of this is the Yankees are actually relying on this guy.

    Its not like Randy Winn you can just dump, Javier Vazquez you can hide in the rotation. If Joba cannot do his job in the 8th inning to get to Rivera, this team will suffer for it.

    Our starters cannot pitch 8 inning every game and turn it over to Rivera.

    Joba
    Marte
    Robertson
    Park

    have all been putrid to see enter the game on too many occasions this season.

    The Yankees bullpen currently ranks with the Cleveland Indians, Pittsburgh Pirates, Milwaukee Brewers, Houston Astros in ineffectiveness.

    There is nothing worse in baseball than to have your starter leave a game and the bullpen gives up runs to cost you that game.

  48. mick May 30th, 2010 at 11:04 am

    Last year with Hughes in the 8th was huge.
    Without an 8th inning guy we won’t win it.
    Better get one. Any ideas?

  49. mick May 30th, 2010 at 11:07 am

    Also no Aceves.
    Coke was more effective than what we now have.
    And Robertson was better than he is now.

    Hate to say it but Hughes to the pen was the answer then and now. It won’t happen but to cut back on his innings, it’s a thought.

  50. mick May 30th, 2010 at 11:09 am

    Mitre can’t pitch out of the pen, make him the 5th starter again.
    The pen is in a shambles and is the key to our season.

  51. Macfan May 30th, 2010 at 11:11 am

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    Like you said we had Coke who was more effective
    Aceves was doing everything for us
    Robertson was less exposed
    and Hughes was in the 8th

    now its a shambles to watch.

  52. crawdaddy May 30th, 2010 at 11:12 am

    Mick,

    Hughes is on a 180 inning limit why would they mess with him by placing him in the bullpen mid-season and then bring him back to a starter again later? The Yankees have made enough mistakes in that regard with Joba to last a lifetime.

  53. Rick May 30th, 2010 at 11:13 am

    The stench of Chamberlain still lingers over the Bronx.
    Do they give him the silent treatment or tell him he’s just one more lousy outing from packing his bags to the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees ?

  54. Macfan May 30th, 2010 at 11:21 am

    “# Rick May 30th, 2010 at 11:13 am

    I don’t even think that would get through to him frankly.

    Blake

    Nice story. Time to clean-out gutters before the game. :mad:

  56. timo May 30th, 2010 at 12:06 pm

    1. In addition to Cervelli getting hit with the foul ball, it was a four hour game.

    2. Even after yesterday’s disaster, Joba’s WHIP stats are just about identical to, guess who, Phil Coke. Saw him pitch the other night against the A’s and it was one line drive after another, some caught, some not. He would be useful but he wouldn’t be a savior.
