Romero vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m. / YES Network

UMPIRES: HP Dan Iassogna, 1B Dale Scott, 2B Jerry Meals, 3B Mark Wegner

WEATHER: Might be even better than yesterday. Maybe a little warmer. Nothing but blue overhead.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT: Last time Andy Pettitte and Ricky Romero matched up against one another was June 5 in Toronto when both lefties allowed two runs, Pettitte going 7.2 innings and Romero lasting 8. That was the 14-inning game when Chad Gaudin gave up the game-winner.

BIRTHDAY BOY: One day before George Steinbrenner turns 80, Brian Cashman turned 43 today.

THE FEWER  THE BETTER: Good thing the Yankees gave up all those extra runs in the 11th inning yesterday, otherwise a rather obscure streak might have ended. The Yankees have a 46-game winning streak when allowing three runs or fewer at home. The last time they lost such a game was last June against Washington. It’s the longest such franchise streak since 1995-96 and the longest in the majors since Boston won 49-such games from 2003 to 2005. This is all according to Elias.

UPDATE, 1:15 p.m.: Jose Bautista goes deep in the first inning, a two-run shot for a quick 2-0 lead. But it was probably Chad Huffman’s fault somehow.

UPDATE, 1:22 p.m.: Off the bat, I thought Huffman had no chance of catching that ball. Nice play in right field, putting Pettitte one out away from finally ending a rocky first inning.

UPDATE, 1:35 p.m.: Derek Jeters leads off with a walk, but the Yankees leave him stranded at second.

UPDATE, 1:58 p.m.: Three strikeouts through two innings for Romero. The guy can pitch, no doubt. Pettitte opened the third inning with his first K and has now retired six straight.

UPDATE, 2:10 p.m.: No outs. Bases loaded. Middle of the order coming to the plate. This time Mark Teixeira comes through with a game-tying, two-run double. Now it’s up to Rodriguez, Cano and Posada — the three guys who couldn’t get the big hit yesterday.

UPDATE, 2:11 p.m.: Wasn’t much, but it did the job. Rodriguez grounded just under the pitcher’s glove for an RBI ground out. Yankees have a 3-2 lead.

UPDATE, 2:12 p.m.: And now an RBI single from Cano.

UPDATE, 2:20 p.m.: Just announced by the Yankees: To celebrate George Steinbrenner’s birthday, the seven World Series trophies won under his watch will be displayed on the 200 level of Yankee Stadium tomorrow, just outside the Yankees Museum near the right-field corner.

photoUPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Brett Gardner’s fourth home run of the season is a two-out, foul-count grand slam to right. It’s an 8-2 Yankees lead in the third.

UPDATE, 2:240 p.m.: This is John McDonald’s sixth career game in left field. He played nothing but infield throughout the minors, got four games in left last season and played one previous game there this year. He just lost a fly ball and gave the Yankees three more runs.

UPDATE, 2:42 p.m.: Eleven runs in an inning ties a franchise high for the Yankees. They also scored 11 in the seventh inning on August 6, 1979.

UPDATE, 3:00 p.m.: I must have misheard the Yankees previous announcement. That 11-run inning wasn’t a franchise high after all. My bad.

UPDATE, 3:28 p.m.: Here’s Dustin Moseley’s Yankee debut.

UPDATE, 3:38 p.m.: Russo in to play third base, Pena playing shortstop. The changes are straight up.

UPDATE, 3:32 p.m.: Jorge Posada is at first base, Colin Curtis is in left, Brett Gardner has moved to center and Francisco Cervelli is behind the plate. I assumed Chad Huffman would move to first and Curtis would play right, but it does seem more fun to throw Posada out there.

    I have a good feeling about this game.

    Yanks win 6-3

  2. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    of course, my prediction is only good if Joba doesn’t pitch

    otherwise, Yanks win 7-6 in 12 innings

  3. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    re-post:

    SJ, devil’s advocate, but if the problem now is solely the pupil and his attitude, couldn’t a trip to Trenton be a wakeup call for him?

    Unfortunately, it hurts the big club if there’s no one as good as Joba is right now ready to replace him.

  4. Ace July 3rd, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Championship teams don’t have Huffmann starting.

  5. Chad Jennings July 3rd, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Sorry everyone. I had the game post scheduled to go live at its regular time but forgot to click a pretty important button. Anyway, sorry it didn’t go live until right at the first pitch.

  6. blake July 3rd, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    Championship blogs don’t have Ace posting.

  7. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    FWIW, I was lambasted for suggesting that Joba be sent down to the minors a month ago.

    I said it was better to try to right the ship early in the season rather than just crossing your fingers and hoping he’d just magically figure it out.

  8. m July 3rd, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    1st pitch? Gameday showing warmup for me, must be the difference in time zone.

    Anyway, go Yankees.

  9. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    ugh

    hope the Yanks offense came to play against Romero

  10. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    Just… awesome.

  11. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    Kay eerily prescient.

  12. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Here comes the very predictable regression to the mean for Pettitte.

  13. blake July 3rd, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    sigh, Batista again….

  14. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    The offense better be on today or else another loss in the column already. Let’s hope.

  15. m July 3rd, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Okay, just refreshed. Thanks, Chad. Just in time to see the 2-run shot. :?

    C’mon, Andy!

  16. Michelle July 3rd, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Can someone please check this back up infielder for needle marks please? How pathetic..

  17. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Yanks offense – time to wake up.

    Or else the Sox will be taking a seat in 1st place today and all of those who laughed at them 2 months ago, myself included, will have to clean off some egg from their faces.

    Let’s go Andy – get ahead of these hitters. They’ll chase, but not if they’re ahead in the count 2-0, 3-1, etc.

  18. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Guys who are 38 year olds don’t have career years on the bump, though I’d love to believe that Pettitte can keep it going. I’m a realist at heart, however. Hopefully the bats come alive today and do what they’re supposed to.

  19. Ace July 3rd, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    No way this offense scores 3 vs Romero

  20. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    Pettitte can’t find the strike zone. Yikes.

  21. I was always right July 3rd, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    2-0 with Cy Romero on the mound

    Loss already mark it down

  22. Michelle July 3rd, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    That was a strike

  23. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    Wow – that was a strike. Ump squeezing the zone.

  24. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    This game is off to an auspicous start. This offense already makes this game a queasy one for me.

  25. joeman July 3rd, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    if they are asking for JM in return for Lee I’m doing that in a NY minute

  26. Ace July 3rd, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    Be real. Andy will have some average outings.

  27. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    Lovely… just pathetic.

  28. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    If you don’t throw strikes, the zone gets smaller. Can’t ask for corners when you’re either off the plate or in the middle of it. Doesn’t happen.

  29. Donnie - Will Meet Joba Under the O'Neill Banner July 3rd, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    Sooooooo….Who’s got plans for the 4th?

  30. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    23 pitches already. And only one out. 2 nothing. 2 on. Can anyone say – long ass game?

  31. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    You know what Andy has been great all season I can’t jump all over the guy.

    Of course our pathetic offense will probably go down meekly today without much fight in them.

  32. pat July 3rd, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    Web gem :shock:

  33. Michelle July 3rd, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Andy’s command is really off so far. He and Hughes seem to have fallen off a cliff recently. It could be fatigue.

  34. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Huffman saves… the game? The season? The franchise?

    He’s a hero!

  35. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    All of our pitchers have to pitch shut down ball for this team to even have a chance, quite a shame when you are asking your starters to be all Sandy Koufax’s on the mound.

  36. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Be real. Andy will have some average outings.

    Of course he will; the last ten years have shown exactly what Pettitte is. The problem is that he has pitched so well, like Hughes, the return to normal seems like he’s pitching bad, when in reality, he’s not.
    In the end, Pettitte is going to be what he always is – a guy who wins his fair share of games and throws to the likes of 3.8-5.0 ERA.
    Finally that inning comes to an end. Thank you, Huffman.

  37. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    ugly inning. PRAYING for the offense to be here today.

  38. TT July 3rd, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    Loss. Ballgame

  39. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    Lets see what these sack of turds do at the plate today.

  40. Rich in NJ July 3rd, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    Still winning.

  41. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:24 pm

    Hopefully he comes back with a couple 3up and 3down innings here. Or the hitters bail him out of what appears to be, thus far, not his best day.

  42. Ace July 3rd, 2010 at 1:24 pm

    Forget Lee. Get Soria n Dejesus

  43. MIL July 3rd, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    2nd or short?

  44. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    thank god he didn’t swing at the first pitch…

  45. pat July 3rd, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    “He and Hughes seem to have fallen off a cliff recently”

    If only some Yankee fans were lemmings.

  46. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    Even if Andy is lousy here today, I won’t be all over him, he has been here for this team time and time again in the past and this season.

    It is the Yankees hitters that I find to be disgusting to watch, along with that bullpen corp.

    We’ll see how much guts the Yankees hitters show today.

  47. TT July 3rd, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    The O is ridiculously overrated

  48. the GM formerly known as Cashman now as Cashmoney! July 3rd, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    come on Jeet!

  49. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    whew— let’s go OFFENSE!

  50. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:28 pm

    tie the game swish!

  51. Phil Columbus July 3rd, 2010 at 1:28 pm

    Why doesn’t the YES network have a K zone type tracking for pitches during the game? Anyone have any info on that? It seems like most broadcasts of other teams I see it in some form. Just curious

  52. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:29 pm

    “# TT July 3rd, 2010 at 1:26 pm

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

    I’ll say you and I could probably shut them down in this current form they are playing.

  53. I was always right July 3rd, 2010 at 1:29 pm

    Cy Young gives up walks once and a will

  54. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    or not. Tie the game Tex!

  55. the GM formerly known as Cashman now as Cashmoney! July 3rd, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    @phil , that’s cuz Michael Kay is da KKK zone.

  56. Keith--FL July 3rd, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    My post from the beginning of the game yesterday…which I feel even stronger about today……
    ——————————————————————————————————————–

    Just want to say that if our bats struggle vs. The Jays again especially after they were swept by the Indians in 4 that our offense has deep issues that will linger for the whole year and a trade or trades have to happen for another bat or 2 like Wiggington, Dunn, Dejesus….and everyone can scream at me that we are in first place, 2nd in runs scored, I’m a spoiled fan, bridge jumper, etc…but I know what I see with our offense…..extremely inconsistent and will be easily stopped in postseason paly (if we make it) by good pitching! Also, not sure why pitchers are not too good before and after they play us (Takahashi, Moyer, Cecil, etc…) but great vs. us..….cant attribute it all to being fired up to play the Yankees……so why?

  57. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    crap. arod – PLEASE !!

  58. Dylan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    Wow I’m done with this blog. I’m so sick of losers acting like the world has just ended when we give up a run, let alone lose a game. I think Brian and Chad do a great job running the blog, but sadly all these moronic posters feel obligated to ruin it with their constant whining and stupid remarks. There are some very intelligent and mature posters on here, but a lot of you guys need to grow the hell up.

  59. the GM formerly known as Cashman now as Cashmoney! July 3rd, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    did not get that TEX msged.

  60. franmerrf July 3rd, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    I hope Andy can settle down without more trouble.

  61. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    Oh gee a man in scoring position and Tex makes out, what a shock.

  62. Ace July 3rd, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    I can’t see how u give Jeter a long term deal.

  63. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    Jesus, if John Sterling and his lackey don’t STFU about what would have or could have happened every game thus far….
    I HATE not having the game on TV.

  64. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    @ Dylan:

    Goodbye.

  65. TT July 3rd, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    Dylan

    u won’t be missed

  66. TT July 3rd, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    6 more yrs of 220 hitting Tex

  67. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Don’t let the internet door hit you in the arse on your way out, and the rest of us try to grow up a little bit.
    You wanna have a conversation with someone who looks at everything the way you do, head to the bathroom and look in the mirror.

    Free country fellow, its your right, see ya.

    This isn’t North Korea being here isn’t mandatory of you.

    Dylan it is. Guess we shouldn’t expect to see you posting here again then.

    DYLAN everyone is leaving. :)

    STFD dylan! it’s a friggin baseball blog..whatever!

  70. I was always right July 3rd, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Dylan is a typical cheerleader who obviously doesn’t get annoyed or mad when their team plays like absolute garbage against pathetic opponents

  71. Abe's Odd World July 3rd, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    pathetic.

  72. the GM formerly known as Cashman now as Cashmoney! July 3rd, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    who did Suzyn Waldman blow to get her job?

  73. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    That was pathetic, every single fastball he threw was away and not one guy tried to go the other way with it.

  74. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    Yikes!

    The Yanks with RISP look like the April version of David Ortiz.

    Let’s go guys!!

  75. Donnie - Will Meet Joba Under the O'Neill Banner July 3rd, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    The Yankee offense is now 0 for its last 22. The only baserunner we’ve had has been Jeter’s leadoff walk.

    Blame the bullpen for yesterday, and Andy for having a really awful first inning, but 0-22 loses games. Period.

  76. Gateways July 3rd, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    terrible. no heart. team will be in 3rd place by the end of the weekend.

  77. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    This isn?t North Korea..

    We are, however, well on our way! hahah.

    She will never live down that ROGAH Clemens moment.

  79. I was always right July 3rd, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    Dylan are you happy that inning?

    They got a man on!!!

    They worked the count!!!

    They will get to Romero later!!!

    Just missed every pitch!!!

    It was the umps fault he is so terrible everything was a ball!!!!

  80. Michelle July 3rd, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    Great…Tex swings 2-0 and Arod swings at a pitch in the dirt. When the lineup is struggling they have absolutely dreadful at bats. You can’t battle a pitcher when you are swinging early in the count or at such bad pitches.

  81. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    ugh. not cool. Can you imagine looking down and seeing Suzyn Waldman looking back at you? hahah. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    Come on Andy, get it together here. 3up, 3 down. They’re not waiting around on him.

  82. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    Dylan’s frustration with the blog is legit.

    Can anybody really argue that when the Yanks are losing this place gets really bad?

    As far as I can tell, blog posts have tailed off dramatically too.

    Obviously, everyone can post what they want… but I agree that it’s not the end of the world if the Yanks are struggling for a bit.

    They can struggle for 2 months as long as they make a run in the last 6-8 weeks (when they play a TON of games against Tampa and Boston).

    It’s a long season. Be happy when they win, upset when they lose…

    but keep it in perspective. No need to proclaim the season is over after a loss. Or, that the Yanks are going to win the World Series after a couple wins.

    Long season.

    Are they really that bad with men in scoring position lately, 0-22, yikes.

    This is rough to watch.

  84. Phil Columbus July 3rd, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    Somebody needs to light a fire under these guys. You just can’t go 0-23 with RISP and not show some emotion. If Paul O’Neill would have swing at that crap pitch for strike 3 or hit that pop up, Yankee fans sure would have known that he is upset.

  85. the GM formerly known as Cashman now as Cashmoney! July 3rd, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    @Aaron, do you think Waldman ‘looks up’ at Sterling when he does his infamous HR calls?

  86. Cashman needs to go July 3rd, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Ace July 3rd, 2010 at 1:11 pm
    Championship teams don?t have Huffmann starting.
    *********

    That would be cashman’s fault. He totally f’d this team up this offseason when he actually tried being a GM and not just spend millions of dollars which is what he does semi-well. Now watch him go out and get a cra-ppy chad gaudin like reliever and some weak hitting bench player at the deadline. What he needs to do is get an actual real hitter to play at DH everyday, kill nick johnson, trade joba and get some real relievers for the bullpen and stop with the stupid prospect hugging.

    Why do the tigers crush the mariners without miguel cabrera and this offense can barely scratch 2 runs off a starter that had a 6.9 ERA? simply pathetic!!

  87. Patrick July 3rd, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    Michael Kay talking about cookiepuss. Am I the only one that thinks of Fred Norris and Howard Stern when someone mentions cookiepuss?

  88. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    Boston Dave,

    you’re right. He’s entitled to his opinion for sure, but no need to proclaim his hatred for the way others view things, then take his ball and go home like the fat kid in third grade.
    If he doesn’t wanna be here, then go. Nobody is in his mom’s basement with him forcing him to log on and act all superior to everyone because he doesn’t see things the way others do.
    There are always going to be bridge jumpers- the press being the biggest goat around, and they’re are always going to be people who see things in perspective.
    No need to try to prove one or the other wrong in their perspective. Both groups have been right before.

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

    It just sums up in a nutshell what we have been watching lately, we struggled even in the 1 win against the Mariners and the Tigers blew out Seattle with ease.

  90. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    Awww man, I want that Yankee ice cream bowl!

    I also want the Yankee chip clip.

    I’m missing out on all these great stadium giveaways.

    The giveaways in North Korea are really lame. For the first 15,000 fans, a handful of Kim Jong-Il pocket lint!

  91. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    at gm:

    that’s utterly gross, man.

  92. NYYanksFan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    Ugh, pathetic 2 pop ups and a ground out to 3rd. Didn’t work the count or even get a runner in scoring position. Pitiful.

  93. Ace July 3rd, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    This team doesn’t have ‘it’ this year. Matsui n Damon were huge losses. Granderson n Johnson are awful. No pen help. Bench stinks. Only win when hitting homers

  94. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:46 pm

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

    My sentiments as well, some folks don’t see the big deal with the way the team is playing other do.

    Different folks, different strokes, but Dylan has to pull out a stump speech about the ills of being critical on a baseball blog of the way the Yankees are playing, especially this offense.

  95. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    Ahh..that’s where you’re wrong, Nick. Kim-Jong doesn’t form lint on his clothes. His clothes are formed from the finest golden silks and fabrics send directly to him from the heavens. That lint is just dirty dryer lint, and everyone gets the same amount.

  96. the GM formerly known as Cashman now as Cashmoney! July 3rd, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    eh, i will reserve my opinion on have it or not til da season is over! but right now, we playing like garbage.

  97. Dylan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    Thanks BD!
    See ya guys. If you want to try and insult me thats fine. Maybe I’ll give the blog another try sometime later in the season. Hopefully some more of the good posters will come back. Until then, GO YANKS!

    Matsui and Damon are washed up.

    really good swing and approach there by Jorge….maybe that gets him going a bit.

  100. uio July 3rd, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Obviously, everyone can post what they want… but I agree that it’s not the end of the world if the Yanks are struggling for a bit.

    They can struggle for 2 months as long as they make a run in the last 6-8 weeks (when they play a TON of games against Tampa and Boston).

    ……………..

    I predict the Yanks will be at least 15 games out by that time. Anybody with me?

  101. Donnie - Will Meet Joba Under the O'Neill Banner July 3rd, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    First hit for the team in 24 ABs. Good for you, Posada. Dare they drive him in?

  102. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    @ Dylan,

    Or, maybe you could just stay gone and spare us the verbal vomit and sense of superiority.

    Go Yanks!

  103. Lou-in-Vermont July 3rd, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    How slow is Posada? I think Gardner gets an inside-the-park HR on that hit.

  104. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    If we’re going to get technical, the majority of North Koreans don’t have their own pockets, so most of that lint is imported from China.

  113. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    @ Butch: I don’t think they get shut out, but my bigger concern is that Andy is way up in pitches early , so he’s going to need a few real quick innings to get back on track, or we could end up with 4ip of bullpen. Our bullpen. The not good one.

    I don’t think Thames will last the season when he comes back. Appears to be way past his prime as a hitter to me. Wish I was wrong, but they will play him and I’m not confident of results any more than I was with Winn.

    And we know he’s not great in the field.

  119. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    has Romero thrown an offspeed pitch for a strike yet? (well that last changeup was close)

    Might as well just stand there and not swing the bat. Force Romero to throw more fastballs.

    Do something… anything.

    At least his pitch count is up.

  124. 57' Yank July 3rd, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    Whole team is in a hitting slump at once. It happens

  125. Keith--FL July 3rd, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    Cashman has to be embarrassed by his terrible offseason moves and this current bench we have…..why not keep Hinske and Hairston and Vlad Guerrero as the DH would have been great….I guess some people on this blog, Cashman, players, Girardi, etc…won’t admit this offense is a problem until we are eliminated from the postseason…I’m tired of hearing the excuses that this is baseball and teams go through this….not go through this for 6 weeks and not be shut out by mediocre pitching that gets lit up by other teams…..as a fan I am just frustrated, especially after a championship season last year….but I get the feeling from some on this blog that it’s not OK to be frustrated and complain…..that makes me a person who is not a true baseball fan that understands the essence of a 162 game season with ups and downs, etc….

  126. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    57′ Yank,

    serious question – what is Thames hitting against lefties?

    Isn’t that the true barometer for him? That’s the specific reason he was brought in.

    If he can hit lefties, mission accomplished.

    I think he was forced to play more, and against righties, after Granderson’s injury. That’s just not his role.

    I think he’ll be fine if he sticks to right-handed platoon bat.

  127. 57' Yank July 3rd, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    Jeter will play 2-3 more years just fine. Least of our worries.

  128. Jaba Tips his Cap July 3rd, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    Last year they won it all, I don’t expect they win every year, as long as Sux doesn’t win it.

    :)

  129. Aaron July 3rd, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    good inning here, Pettitte. Get this third out quick now, and get back to the duggout.

  130. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Thames is hitting .302/.412/.442 – .854 OPS against lefties

    I’d say that’s just fine for his role.

    Again, he shouldn’t be playing against righties unless it’s absolutely necessary.

  131. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Would anyone be shocked if this game ended 2-0 and one bad inning from Andy was the game. :)

    The way this team is swinging the bats it wouldn’t be out of the realm.

    Right now this team cannot muster anything at the plate.

  132. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Andy’s pitch count is going to be in better shape than Cesar Romero’s when the 3rd inning is over.

  133. 98NYY July 3rd, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    42 pitches in 2 innings…maybe we can have fun with their bullpen. It is only fair since it is our park and all…

  134. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    man, one mistake to Bautista thanks to falling behind 2-0 otherwise Andy would be pitching a gem so far.

    Yanks have to stop wasting this quality starting pitching. Starting now!

  135. NYYanksFan July 3rd, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    Good thing Bautista hit that HR or else the Jays would be shut out. A strike out, a pop up and a grounder to 3rd on like 7 pitches. Ach.

    I’ve stated I feel Gardner should lead off with Derek hitting 2nd

    Many of those ground balls Derek hit might get through with the right side opened up

    Gardner can be put in motion to stay out of double plays with Derek hitting ground balls

    When Gardner takes off the infielders have to vacate their position to cover the bag and Derek’s grounders to short or second might get through more often with a man in motion and the infielders moving.

  230. Long time fan July 3rd, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    Gardner may or may not feel pressure leading off, but he’s one of the brightest spots in the line-up this year, so I say leave him there for now.

    hitting over .300 with an .854 OPS against lefties.

    I’m not arguing that this guy is great. He is a role player for sure.

    But he has done his job so far. He’s at least earned the right to keep playing.

    Perhaps your expectations for a 4th/5th OF were a little too high?

    Since May Thames is hitting .100 vs Lefties, and infact has been awful since April ended.

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

    I don’t know man, I just think its something that can get Derek going hitting with a man on base in motion.

    Pitcher constantly throwing over when Gardner is on and Derek at the plate

    Those ground balls Derek hits would at worst have a man on 2nd base in Gardner, even if they don’t go through a hole for a hit.

    I feel sometimes you have to entrust a guy when he is a starter.

    Gardner is

    4th in steals
    8th in OBP
    His BB to K ratio is pretty close 31-40 in 246 AB’s
    He has seen the most pitches per plate appearance in the majors at 4.50

    *******

    mick -

    You know I never ignore when people talk to me. I had to back track to see what you said that I missed, because I had taken one last look at the blog before going out and melladie and pat had addressed posts to me. I just went to the comment box on the most recent thread and responded to them and then went out.

    I thank you for giving me kudos for the “perfection” statement. Had I seen it before I went out I would have responded then.

    We have a Disney vacation club membership and they sent an e-mail trying to sell us points to make Hawai’i a home resort. :) I have always resisted going there because of the length of the flight, but they’re making it hard for me to keep avoiding that particular vacation. Maybe one day soon…. and if we do, I’ll let you know! :lol:

    Jerkface,

    Thames has started TWO games against lefties since May.

    Perhaps you should have stated that when you posted your not so compelling stats.

    Again, I’m not arguing that this guy is great. But he has done what the Yanks brought him here to do. Hit lefties.

    He was forced to play more often than he should due to injuries. He has hit lefties throughout his career.

    If you want him to be a star, your expectations are too high. That’s all.

  285. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    Yeah Yanks pile it on, make up for those dead games recently.

    That was a luckky hit for Alex in the last inning.
    He got three RBIs out it and now he is third in RBIs in the AL.
    With all his troubles – health and otherwise – it is amazing.

    Eleven runs in an inning ties a franchise high for the Yankees. They also scored 11 in the seventh inning on August 6, 1979.

    Chad, you’re wrong.

    They scored 13 runs in one inning against the Tampa Bay Rays 2 or 3 years ago at home.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CORRECT !

  330. CR9 July 3rd, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    I forgot, I was Philly Phitins too! It seems to be that everybody you all dont like must be CR9. There must be many CR9s in this world.

    And as for Philly Phitins, put aside the stupid “PH” with everything, I have absolutely nothing good to say about Roy Halladay. If the same injury that occurred to Kendrick Perkins happened to Roy, Id be just as thrilled!

  331. 98NYY July 3rd, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    So we can’t be fickle positive after one 2b what about after an 11 run inning? We were willing to retire or trade the entire team after yesterday. I choose to enjoy today and LIKE them all today…even Tex…

  332. Jerkface July 3rd, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Jerkface,

    Thames has started TWO games against lefties since May.

    Perhaps you should have stated that when you posted your not so compelling stats.

    Again, I’m not arguing that this guy is great. But he has done what the Yanks brought him here to do. Hit lefties.

    He was forced to play more often than he should due to injuries. He has hit lefties throughout his career.

    If you want him to be a star, your expectations are too high. That’s all.

    He has had more than 20 ABs against lefties since May, sorry. You’re incorrect. I counted it up in a prior post a couple of days ago.

    He had 32 PA , 3 hits, 3 walks, and 2 HBP or there abouts.

    That was just vs lefties.

    He has not had an XBH since april.

    His one strength is power and he hasn’;t provided it. He hasn’t gotten on base. He dosent work the count. And he didnt hit for average.

    He had a VERY good april and has sucked for 2 months. As a bench player thats borderline unacceptable.

  333. BBFan July 3rd, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Alex’s next steal will be his 300th.
    Soon he will hit his 600th HR.
    So, he will be in the 600-300 club this year.
    Did anybody else dis that? Willie Mays?

    3 BB’s for the Captain today……Wish he would learn to take some pitches.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    I think someone stated the other day that he?s hitting .357 on first pitch, which happens to be the pitch that?s attains the highest avg. counting all hitters in MLB.

    Jeter seems, to me at least, to have enough smarts and experience to know what he?s doing !

    How about you ?

    ‘57 Yank – I totally agree…I was being sarcastic at all the Jeter critics…….Regret it did not translate that way…….The Captain is 2nd only to Mo in my book….and, by the way, I am a ‘61 Yank
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Now, you?re talkin? ! One of the best teams ever ! 61′

    What a wonderful summer that was……my first summer as a baseball and Yankee fan…….I remember everyone on that great ’61 team, and just about all their stats – from M&M, to 25-4 Whitey, Luis Arroyo, .348 BA Elston Howard, that tremendous infield of Clete, Tony, Bobby R. and Moose, and even Johnny Blanchard, Hector Lopez, and Bob Cerv.

    Answering my own question.

    Barry Bonds and Willie Mays had 600 HRs and 300 Steals.
    Alex will join that exlusive club this year.

  349. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    Jerkface,

    I think you got some bad info.

    Thames has only had 14 AB “since” May (meaning June 1st and beyond).

    He started just 2 games against lefties and was injured (stiff neck and then the hamstring).

    If you want to make conclusions about him over 2 games instead of multiple years of decent hitting against lefties, that’s your prerogative.

    All I’ve suggested is that his .854 OPS against lefties this year along with success against lefties for much of his career is enough to earn him more chances…. against lefties.

    If a better hitter comes along, great. Until then, Thames can play a role on this team.

  350. mick July 3rd, 2010 at 2:58 pm

  351. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    Andy has been dealing since that first inning rough beginning.

    That’s what I like about Pettitte, even when he struggles early he usually settles down and limits the damage instead of caving in.

    LOL.

    In my world of Gardner leading off in a situation like that you start the runner and stay out of the DP that Derek just hit into theoretically.

    If he is moving maybe the SS breaks to cover and that ball goes through instead

    Or the 2nd baseman breaks to cover and Derek hits it to the right side and it goes through with Gardner on the move.

    This is why I think hitting Brett leadoff can help out Jeter in those spots with all those ground balls. Both infielders can’t stay in their position with Gardner moving to 2nd. :)

  377. COLORADO YANKEE FAN July 3rd, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    As I?ve stated before, look up class in the dictionary and there will be pictures of Mo and Jeter.

    And maybe even Matsui. Loved him, all class too !

    ’57 Yank – You are spot on…I agree with you 100%……those 3 were my Top 3 when Matsui was a Yank….and I wish he still was. Compare Matsui apologizing for getting injured and his overall class to players like Manny.

    By the way, I once had an interesting conversation with a Japanese General – who was a fan of Matusi of course – about Matsui when he signed with the Yankees (when i was still on active duty in the U.S. Army). The U.S. 3-Star General with us was not a baseball fan, and was angry with me for the long conversation and for deviating from the script……but I like to think I helped make the visit a success and improve U.S. – Japanese relations.

    Marcus Thames in April: .588 .650 .941

    carried by 3 multihit games. Completely carrying the rest of his season. He has been nothing since April outside of his walk off, which was very awesome but Thames provides pretty much no value now.

    Jerkface,

    If I tell you that somebody is hitting .300 since they returned from the DL, are you going to challenge it by using stats from before they were injured?

    Anyway, I’ll concede because it’s a waste of time, especially since I believe you are confused about your use of the word since.

    Perhaps you should have said “since the beginning of May” ?

  381. Patrick July 3rd, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    Marcus Thames is not very good, the Yanks need to trade for a legit DH

  382. Jerkface July 3rd, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    Fine, Boston Dave, please feel free to try and use english syntax semantics to argue that Marcus Thames has been good.

    He hasn’t.

    He had 1 month which was about 8 games of very good production, followed by 25 games of nothing.

  383. BD (Boston Dave) July 3rd, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    Jerkface,

    I’m done. It’s not semantics. It was a critical aspect of your argument and we’ve wasted several posts because of it.

  384. Jerkface July 3rd, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    Your entire argument which I have been arguing against is that Thames has an .850 OPS vs lefties this year and that he has ‘done his job’. Well if you take away his first 8 games, he has been garbage. His production in those 8 games was so good that his incredibly poor showing afterwards has hardly done anything to dent his ‘rate stats’.

    He was batting .588 at the end of April.

    But if you look at his approach, his swing, what he has done, his results from May 1st to his injury, he was beyond useless.

    He can’t field and was not hitting. Thames is a very streaky hitter and when he is bad he is terrible.

  385. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    I apologize if anyone pointed this out. But, both Sterling/Suzyn also said on the broadcast that the last time the Yanks scored 11 one inning was on August 6, 1979. Is that where you got that from? I knew as soon as they said it they were wrong, because I really remember that game.

    On August 6, 1979 the Yanks played on Monday Night baseball and won 5-4 as Bobby Murcer drove in all the runs. It was the same day as Thurman Munson’s funeral.

    See http://www.baseball-reference......8060.shtml

  411. COLORADO YANKEE FAN July 3rd, 2010 at 3:45 pm

    Yes, Doreen – This Nick Green is that former Yankee of whom you speak……He was released by the Dodgers (I think) and now with the Jays.

  412. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 3:45 pm

    Big moment in Spain v. Paruguay here

  413. m July 3rd, 2010 at 3:45 pm

    Doreen,

    lol. Yes, Nick Green was a Yankee.

    espn gamecast has a “due up” with three thumbnail pix. Next up: 1. Nick Green (Jays cap) 2. Derek Jeter 3.Nick Swisher. :)

    Moseley a 5 pitch 7th, a 10 pitch 8th, he said he really wanted to play for the Yankees to Cashman, lookin good so far.

  415. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    Another big moment coming in Spain v. Paruguay here!

  416. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 3rd, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    thanks, pat.

    Boy, time flies.

    lead off double.. no outs and can’t even advance him. not much left to say about that.. it’s beating a dead horse. Maybe they think that 11 run inning can carry them into the ASG

    —————————-

    Yankees are winning 11-3 and you are still complaining.

    Lately this blog never ceases to amaze me.

    “Moseley a 5 pitch 7th, a 10 pitch 8th, he said he really wanted to play for the Yankees to Cashman, lookin good so far.”

    Let’s just hope Torre doesn’t destroy Moseley’s arm. :(

    It has to be sarcasm. There’s no way anyone would seriously write that.

    6 outs on 14 pitches.

    I don’t care what the game situation is, whomever gets outs and puts up zeroes out of the pen should move up in the pecking order.

    One can only hope that he becomes this year’s relief version of Aaron Small. His history says no, but, then, so did Small’s.

  421. LGY July 3rd, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    The guy who took the PK for Paraguay could not have telegraphed his shot anymore.

  422. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2010 at 3:50 pm

    Personally, I’d let Moseley take the 9th inning and get the cheap save.

  423. 57' Yank July 3rd, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    Read yesterday that Moseley told Cash that he’d do anything to be a Yank. Was not planning to seek free agency if they didn’t call him up by deadline.

    May be a guy with confidence who knows how to pitch, being sooooo happy to be here.

    Hasn’t done great in past, but…….. we’ll see.

  424. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    That was a pretty crazy turn of events. After all that, you’d think there would be a goal on the board by now.

  425. ben July 3rd, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    WHY ARE THEY NOT PUTTING IN MO? THIS IS RIDICULOUS. OMG.

  426. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 3rd, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Okay! Yay!

  427. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Good to get Chan Ho off of that 6.66 ERA. :twisted:

  428. Macfan July 3rd, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    Nice easy game for the Yanks

    A laugher for a change

    Lets hope its a sign the offense is getting back on track.

  429. LGY July 3rd, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    Nick,

    That was a pretty big choke job. Both guys telegraphed their shot. The guy on Spain was leaning too far back and the guy on Paraguay angled his body and ankle too early.

    Crazy to watch.

  430. damon (27 waiting 4 28) July 3rd, 2010 at 3:56 pm

  432. LGY July 3rd, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    ben,

    That guy has been complaining about everything for over a week now. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was serious.

  433. SJ44 July 3rd, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    LGY,

    The blog has become a haven for children who know nothing about baseball to fill it with panic.

    It’s as if they have never experienced a baseball season.

    It’s not a perfect team but, they are in a perfect position right now to make a second half run.

    Something they usually do, if the whiners had any grasp of Yankee history.

  434. Nick in SF July 3rd, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    World Cup drama More Yankee talk :arrow:

  435. ben July 3rd, 2010 at 4:00 pm

    Don’t be ridiculous SJ, everyone knows that a .600 winning percentage means nothing unless your bullpen’s ERA is in the top 1/3.

  436. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    Huffman didn’t have a good day at the plate, but, his diving catch turned the game around from getting out of hand.

  437. just sayin July 3rd, 2010 at 4:02 pm

    If you go back to the thread that has Joba with head hung low, it wasn’t sorrow, look closely,
    he was drunk/hungover!

    Great game, Cito who hates the Yankees must be fuming about now.

  438. SJ44 July 3rd, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    He was serious LGY.

    Here’s the thing……

    If you are going to whine everyday about this team, why go away after they win?

    I could name the names who do it all the time but, I won’t.

    Those are the folks that should get crushed on here everyday.

    They aren’t “passionate fans”. They are morons who torch the game threads on a daily basis.

    The saving grace is when this team gets on a roll, they will go away.

    Winning makes them sick.

    He sure did and Thames couldn’t have done that ! Ooops, I said that name again !!!

  441. Pete July 3rd, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    August 6, 1979?????
    I was there. That was the Bobby Murcer 5 RBI game on the night of Munson’s funeral.
    Yanks won 5-4 in walkoff fashion. I still have the scorecard…..

  442. GreenBeret7 July 3rd, 2010 at 4:11 pm

    It’s doubtful that Swisher makes that catch if he’s pulled over that far into right center. Huge spot in the game.

  443. P- (where is my team?) July 3rd, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    You’re not allowed to say anything negative about the team here. If you don’t constantly kiss their tale, you are not a true yankee fan.

    those that complain constantly about the complainers are even more ridiculous. You guys are sewn so tight it’s absurd.

    We had one good inning, and we got a lot of help from blue jay blunders. The rest of the game (aside from Pet) which mind you was 8 innings was more of the same Yankee offense emptiness.

    Only 3 days into July so far, but team avg is even lower than june.. let’s see if that 11 run anomaly will have any impact that carries over.

    P.S. What is so bad about saying this offense is playing like crap? When in fact they are..

    Grow up blog police.. or better yet. why don’t you guys start a private chat so you can talk about blue skies, purple clovers, and happiness.. nobody will bother you or miss you.

  444. P- (where is my team?) July 3rd, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    SJ44,

    BTW, we won today and I am here. Sorry if the rest of us don’t live here like you do. Why don’t you get a life and do something useful with your time instead of point the finger at people who don’t share the same optimism as you do.

    BTW, maybe you know some facts/stats on baseball.. and possibly more than the majority here.. but it doesn’t make you any better than the next that is here to discuss whatever it is they want to discuss. Negative or not.

    Stop your censorship attempts. you are ridiculous. talk about morons.

  445. RyanM July 3rd, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    I remember that 13 run inning during the summer of ’05. was absolutely ridiculous. i miss tampa being that bad. ;)
