Cahill vs. Yankees

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

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

WEATHER: It’s close to 90 degrees right now, but it should dip into the low 80s and maybe into the 70s as the game goes on. Pretty much no chance of rain.

BEATING CAHILL: Trevor Cahill has become a legitimate Cy Young candidate. The Yankees beat him earlier this season in Oakland, but they did that with just four hits and one walk against him. Most of the damage was done by Alex Rodriguez, who had two home runs and — obviously — is not in the lineup tonight. “He gets a ton of ground balls,” Joe Girardi said. “You have to make this guy get the ball up.”

IN THE DAYLIGHT: The Yankees will play five straight day games this home stand. According to Elias, it will be the first time the Yankees have played five straight day games at home since April 8 through April 14 of 2004. Right now, the Yankees have the second-best daytime record in the majors behind — of course — Oakland. The Yankees lead the majors with a .283 batting average in day games.

SAME RECORD, NEW RECORD: The Yankees and Rays have now been tied for first place for seven straight days. According to Elias, that matches the most consecutive days two teams have been tied for first place this late in the season in Major League history. It also happened with the Dodgers and Astros in mid-Sepember, 1980.

UPDATE, 7:28 p.m.: Things could be going better for Dustin Moseley. After the first three batters reached, he’s now allowed a sacrifice fly and a two-out, two-run single. It’s 3-0 A’s, and Moseley isn’t out of the first.

UPDATE, 7:42 p.m.: Robinson Cano sneaks a hard hit ball past Mark Ellis, scoring Derek Jeter to cut the lead to 3-1, still in the first inning. Might want to get comfortable. This one alright looks like it might take a while.

UPDATE, 7:50 p.m.: Nick Swisher just tied the game on a two-run double, then ran himself into an inning-ending double play when he misread the ball of Posada’s bat.

UPDATE, 7:56 p.m.: Nice rebound inning from Moseley. Two ground balls and a strikeout.

UPDATE, 8:07 p.m.: After a lead-off single, there is action in the Yankees bullpen — Javier Vazquez getting loose — but Moseley just got a strikeout, throw out double play and now a fly ball to right to end the inning. Still 3-3.

UPDATE, 8:15 p.m.: First two at-bats after the bruised right hand, Mark Teixeira is 2-for-2 with a single and now a solo home run that’s put the Yankees in front 4-3 in the bottom of the third.

UPDATE, 8:17 p.m.: Make that back-to-back homers as Cano goes deep with his 26th of the season, setting a career high. That’s the seventh time the Yankees have gone back-to-back this year.

UPDATE, 8:23 p.m.: Wow. Jeff Larish just clobbered a ball to deep right field to cut the lead to 5-4. Swisher kind of went after it, but that thing was way gone off the bat.

UPDATE, 8:32 p.m.: Two-out RBI single by Ramiro Pena. I don’t know what it is, but the guy really has had a knack for big hits. He doesn’t have many of them, but every single one seems to have done some damage this season. It’s a 6-4 Yankees lead.

UPDATE, 8:46 p.m.: After back-to-back one-out walks, Moseley is finished. His command was off all night, and now it’s Vazquez in to face Jack Cust with two on and one out in the fifth.

UPDATE, 8:54 p.m.: Grounder to second gets on out, Derek Jeter jump throw gets the second. Vazquez is out of the fifth with the lead still 6-4.

UPDATE, 9:06 p.m.: Three straight hits to start the fifth inning — Teixeira double, Cano single, Swisher double — have scored two more runs and given the Yankees an 8-4 lead.

UPDATE, 9:11 p.m.: Second deck for Marcus Thames, a three-run home run to make this an 11-4 game, still with no outs in the fifth inning. A position player is going to pitch in this game. I’m convinced of it.

By the way, Thames is unreal right now. Five straight starts with a home run, with two homers in one of those games. Lefty. Righty. Home. Away. Doesn’t matter. He’s locked in.

UPDATE, 9:30 p.m.: Former Yankees minor leaguer Matt Carson is now in right field for the A’s. I got to say hello to him this afternoon. He’s in that Dan Giese Hall of Fame for all-time nice guys who came through Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    SJ, maybe he said the CBA. Does that also pertain to minor leaguers? Maybe I misremembered the first letter…

    Saw your posts last night and wanted to say thanks for your service. In honor of it here’s a joke for you

    What’s the difference between a soldier on leave and a flea on a cat’s belly?
    One’s on furlough and the other is on low fur. :lol:

  4. LGY August 30th, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    lol. Throwback to the 80s up at the Fordham campus in the Bronx. Someone got chain snatched in the middle of the day.

  5. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    What is chain snatched?

  6. Robin August 30th, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    This has been the hottest summer, evah :(

  7. raymagnetic August 30th, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    Indeed, this a pennant race

  9. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    KPB, I and all the others appreciate the sentiments, but, most of us enjoy what we were doing. Thank you for the kind words.

    Not quite so sure about that joke, though. LMAO.

  10. KPB August 30th, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    No problem on the kind words all of you deserve far more than you get. As far as the joke I have one more if you can stomach it.

  11. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    Trisha,

    I just answered your post in the other thread re: minor league player rights.

  12. Pauldanand August 30th, 2010 at 7:10 pm

    “What is chain snatched?”

    i just googled it…
    apparently it speaks of the chains rappers wear… often loaded w/ diamonds…which are snatched

    by implication it may mean a robbery

    I guess

    Thanks SJ.

    I’d pay for tickets to the first time that Manny fs up in Chicago and Ozzie doesn’t like it. Talk about a recipe for disaster!

    repost

    champ809 August 30th, 2010 at 7:08 pm
    Jennings and Crawford have the exact same skillsets. In fact he’s more like Crawford than he is Upton as a player.

    And while I think that he’ll be very good I’m not predicting that he will be an all star OF’er in his rookie year. I also don’t think that he’ll have to be that for the Rays to continue to be an elite team.

    I have for the last year and a half posted on this blog that I would trade Upton and resign Crawford were I the Rays as I feel that Crawford should be a Ray for life kinda like their Jeter. While I get that finances makes that a very unlikely scenario that would be, in my mind the best thing for the organization.

    Stanton is doing now what he’s was doing earlier this season in the minors. Striking out a ton and running into some homers. He was rushed up to the majors after just a handful of games in AAA whereas Jennings has been @ the AAA level for a year and a half. I think Jennings is more prepared for the promotion and again his skillsets as a high contact speed guy are totally different than Stantons high k high homer act.

    Unless the redSux spend a ton of $ in the offseason Tampa making the moves I suggested to me still nets them a better 25 man roster than the RedSux.

    Depending on what exactly the redsox do the Blue Jays make pass them by next season as well.

    Anyone using mlb.com notice that all of a sudden you can’t reshape the window, it’s no longer Adobe but Windows player? You can pause now which is great, but if there is no full/mini view there’s going to be a problem!

    Oh boy …

  20. LGY August 30th, 2010 at 7:17 pm

    ray,

    Of course I don’t think it was funny someone got robbed. I just found the method funny as I didn’t think people did that anymore.

  21. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    wow I walk away and come back its 1st & 2nd nobody out….great…

    Yea what’s going on with that I was super pissed when I logged in today. Also I can’t see the scores for the other teams, highlights, boxscore etc. Did they change their system or is it some kind of error????

    Cust is related to John Sterling, iirc.

    OK, I’ll be back after the game. I find it far more enjoyable to watch, then come back and read the game thread.

  29. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    Come on Moseley!!! If he doesn’t pitch well today I could see Vazquez making his next start and Moseley goes back to the bullpen. He might of used up all of his magic.

  30. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    we had that guy out at 3rd.

  31. Bryan August 30th, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    same problem Mike

    WTF is wrong with mlb.com

  32. muddyduck August 30th, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    Hi, Mike_Boston.

    I have noticed that, as well as the fact that despite my subscription to mlb.tv premium, I am not getting an HD feed.

    Have never had any trouble before today. Glad to at least know I’m not alone in my frustration!

    Cheers!

    So true, first Seattle now Oakland…who’s next Baltimore

  35. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    Tuesday

    Nothing cures bad offense like the Yankees uniform – because when they see the pinstripes, they decide to get up and max effort!

  36. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    Not a good play by Pena. Mosley will have some issues with a bunch of ping hitters

  37. LGY August 30th, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    IIOIIOIIO ,

    I am not. When I was applying to law schools I somehow ended up on their email listserv.

  38. Frozen Rope August 30th, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    Pena really does stink at 3rd. He stays back on the ball all too often and let’s it play him, and just then couldn’t pick a low throw that would have gotten the runner.

  39. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    I negate Michael Kay’s attempted jinx by mentioning that Mark Ellis is a pesky hitter and mentioning that Ellis is 3 for his last 25, and by mentioning that this is a big batter for Moseley.

    I negate your jinxes, Kay.

  40. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    LGY,

    I went to Fordham for undergrad, but from what I’ve heard, you’d need to loot a small country to attend their law school.

  41. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    Mosley got lucky on that one…please don’t throw that pitch again

  42. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    Moseley’s command is really not good. With his “stuff” he needs perfect location.

  43. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    OMG!!! OMG!!! Yanks are down 1-0 and Cahill has a perfect game going without even throwing a pitch.

  44. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    tampa is about to start crushing toronto

  45. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    2-0 Rays already..

  46. Bronx Jeers August 30th, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    How else are you supposed to take a chain from somebody’s neck by force?

    …bruised up from the pistol whipping… webs on the neck from the necklace stripping…

  47. Mike_Boston August 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    Ok, well it looks like we’re all in the same boat. I’m going to email their support. FYI, earlier this season I was on a work road trip, Atl and Knoxville, both hotels were giving me blackouts, only choice was radio, of course I didn’t try any other games at the time. I email them, turns out that Hyatt’s corporate ISP server’s out of NYC, so I was being blacked out due to Hyatt’s IP generating out of NYC, even though I was elsewhere around the country. Sorry Hyatt, you’re off the travel list during the season for now on!

    Yikes that missed by a few feet…

  48. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    yes 1-0 isnt a big deal, but he is pushing 30 pitches.

  49. Alias August 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    Count me in as having problems with MLB.com. This sucks. Tiny screen, no HD. Not happy.

  50. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    hasn’t thrown 1 fastball in this series to Ellis

  51. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    OMG I am going to punch Mosley in the face….

  52. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    3 for last 25 and the guy decided not to quit on the at bat.

  53. xcv August 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    moseley’s stuff is crappy so he nibbles around the corners and too scared to challenge hitters. could be a long night with cahill on the mound

  54. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    Moseley is having a tough time to start off this game. Hopefully he settles in. I don’t expect length from him, but gotta limit the damage now.

  55. YankFanCA August 30th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    It had better stop at 1 with Cahill out there

  56. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    I’m excited to see Cahill pitch tonight. His numbers are wonderful, but he has a weak K:BB rate, and a BABIP of .217 (!!) so I assume he pitches to contact and locates pretty well, although his high walk rate sorta refutes that. Obviously there’s some luck mixed in there too. Should be interesting to see what the Yankees can do against him.

  57. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    and of course Tampa can smoke Toronto and we are under .500 against them

  58. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    That wasn’t the way to do it Moseley.

  59. YankFanCA August 30th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Nice work, Moseley. That might do it.

  60. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Well, it’s going to become more stupid in here until NYYs take the lead. Best of luck to the good regs , not the whiners, that hang on. I’m out

  61. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    We just got screwed by some loser named Larish. This puke loser Michael Kay mentioned a big at bat again. This ….. …. …. god damn …. …..

    And this loser Larish designed his swing purposely to go to the opposite field – something he wouldnt do against the red sox.

    loser larish.

    and moseley decided to walk ellis from ahead in the count 1-2.

  62. rconn23 August 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    This is Burnett-esque. Another pitcher giving his team no chance to win a ball game.

  63. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    “2-0 Rays already..”

    And?

  64. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Just an awful start.. This pitching staff other than CC and Nova and the bullpen has been in shambles. Please Andy come back quickly, but healthy!

  65. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    oakland has scored more runs in the first than entire weeks

  66. Ruby Tuesday August 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    And a 0.222 hitter knocks the Yankees out of first place.

  67. tyanksfan36 August 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Syd_cash
    The Rays got swept last time they played Toronto

  68. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Got to be quicker with hooks on these guys.

    They are limited guys and you have 13 pitchers on the roster for a reason.

    No reason to keep him in the game after the second walk and hitting the 30 pitch mark in the first inning.

    The hooks have to come quicker. Especially when the roster gets expanded.

  69. LGY August 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    IIOIIOIIO,

    Fordham is not alone. Law schools in general are very expensive, especially the schools in NYC. I was fortunate enough to receive some scholarship money though.

  70. Doreen August 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Oy.

    Okay, bats, let’s go.

  71. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    “2-0 Rays already..”

    And?

    ….and 3-0 Oakland That’s opposite directions to start the night.

  72. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    this sickening no offense team just scored 3 runs with professional hits to the opposite field, professional sacrifice flies and professional at bats resulting in walks. id love it if the As played the sox again, and Beckett just smoked this loser larish right in the ….

  73. JobaTipsHisCap August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    2-2 split with A’s.
    They have been playing .500 ball games for a while.

  74. YankFanCA August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    34 pitches, nearly all of them very hittable. Boy, is Pettitte needed.

  75. Ruby Tuesday August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    Now imagine A.J. Burnett pitching against this mighty offense ….

  76. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    When you can’t get this AAA lineup out you have nothing. Also let’s not forget Cahill has a 2 era and this lineup has been very inconsistent. Especially when they fall behind by a lot of runs. Not a good combo.

  77. MG August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    CR9, thanks for completely ruining this blog with your bullshit. I can no longer read this while you are around, which is essentially 24-7. You need serious mental therapy for your illness.

  78. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    I don’t think anyone can be too surprised about this from Moseley. He was decent for us in his previous starts, but it always seemed he was more lucky than good. Too lazy to look it up, but I’m sure his peripherals will confirm this. He doesn’t have the talent to be a long term starter for the Yankees, but the pitchers expected to do the job have been even worse. Don’t blame Moseley, blame Burnett and injuries to Vasquez and Pettitte.

  79. xcv August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    these punch & judy A’s already scored 3 runs. nice job. now watch yanks go 1-2-3 on 6 pitches

  80. DocTodd August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    time for him to Mosely on out of the rotation…..

  81. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    “Well, it’s going to become more stupid in here until NYYs take the lead. Best of luck to the good regs , not the whiners, that hang on. I’m out”

    I’m with you. I can imagine that all the negative nancys will feed off each other and enjoy their misery a lot more if nobody is here saying anything positive.

  82. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Both of Moseley’s walks came after he was ahead in the count 1-2. That’s just inexcusable, and the reason why the inning was as large as it was.

    The A’s are one of the worst offensive teams in the American League, but this team always gets destroyed by #8-9 type hitters of which the entire A’s lineup is composed.

  83. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    pathetic, can’t get out oak hitters.

    yanks are a 500 team and it won’t change until andy returns and a mirale if aj can pitch better

  84. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Painful first inning. Let’s hope the Yankee bats answer.

  85. 108 stitches August 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Too much of a reminder of Burnett. Mosely has to settle and be quick about it. Looking like a Mitre or Gaudin night.

  86. DocTodd August 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Pena should have fielded Gardners throw..

  87. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    blue jays arent playing escobar or vernon wells. No overbay either. Guess the Jays arent interested in winning that game.

  88. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    “….and 3-0 Oakland That’s opposite directions to start the night.”

    Check it out, there will probably be quite a few games that start out in that direction and quite a few that start the opposite over the rest of the season. If you can get used to that as part of a baseball season you won’t feel the need to broadcast every negative event.

    Have a good night.

  89. LGY August 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Pena’s misplay loomed large in that inning and could be continue to do so in this game.

    Have to pick up your pitcher when he is struggling to get outs.

  90. JobaTipsHisCap August 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    I expect them play .500 games to the end.

  91. DocTodd August 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Cahill looks like Bobby Hill from King of the Hill…

    The key to this series IMO is how Hughes rebounds tomorrow night, as we know AJ is going Wed. This is tough to handle seeing the rotation suffer like this. I definately understand why Cashman went all in on Lee in July. Pettitte and Arod are needed badly.

  93. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    the Yankees seem to hit a lot better at home, even they Cahill is good maybe they will get some hits together

  94. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    brett gardner refused to run again.

    make him run or bench him

  95. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    Of course Gardner doesn’t even attempt to steal 2nd base. What a total waste of speed…

  96. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    why wasnt gardner going? how was he nowhere near 2nd base there? Cahill have a good move or something?

  97. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    5 pitches. gardner has to steal.

  98. Tabbert August 30th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Why run gardy? He is only the fastest player in baseball

  99. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    we have one of the top 10 fastest guys in MLB, and he refuses to go. An entire AB elapses and he just stands there.

  100. xcv August 30th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    $18m for a .269 hitting 38 yr SS with no power and no range. a bargain

  101. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    brett gardner just cost the yankees a run

  102. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Robbie get some RBIs.

  103. Rishi August 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Gardner’s on his own to run – I wonder what in the world he’s waiting for out there…just go!

  104. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Notice how Cahill didn’t throw to 1st base once when Gardner was on base. When Crisp was on base Moseley had to throw to 1st 1 million times. Gardner isn’t annoying and pesky and teams know that he doesn’t run so they don’t bother.

  105. qiantom August 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Jeter can bat 9th. Just abysmal!

  106. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    I’m not trying to get on Jeters case, but the man’s average is now .269 this is his lowest since 1997 and even then his avg was .291 … This is quite a sharp drop.

  107. DocTodd August 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Gardner should be going on the first pitch

  108. Niblick August 30th, 2010 at 7:41 pm

  114. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    for a team that’s down 3-0 in the first,and the fact that Gardner didn’t run with Jeter AB knowing that Jeter hit’s into DP’s just seems like a no-brainer to run, but nothing.. I don’t understand the lack of fundamentals there.

  115. blake August 30th, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    “Is anyone else able to get the game on their iPhone today? No video for me.”

  116. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    haha Swish got lucky with that one

  117. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    MVP Cano… Nothing big, just a nice single to keep the inning going and an rbi.

  118. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    @Blake yup I’m having the same problem and I have the MLB.TV premium account they must be having some sort of problem

  120. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    Should u steal down 3-0? I guess with jeter up and his double plays u have 2

  121. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    “You can’t kill Dustin mosley because at the end of the day he is dustin mosley”

    ..that is so very true. This guy came out of nowhere. I just think that cause he had previous MLB experience that he got the nod. Maybe he’ll settle down and go 6 innings at least.

  122. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    SWISHER!!!!!!!!!!!

  123. UnKnown August 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    That is big big by Swish. Huge answer inning by the pinstripes

  124. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Cahill struggling here – drive the stake in now, before he recovers. And into the hearts of the trolls…..

  125. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    agree on Moseley. he’s not that bad.

    look at the max effort from Coco and Cliff. Unbelievable.

  126. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    hope we hold this!

  127. Rishi August 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    New game.

  129. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    hot stuff Swish…..he smoked that ball. A second life for Mosley

  130. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Very big hit by Swish!!! Moseley has to hold down this AAA lineup now.

  131. blake August 30th, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Big runs here to get back. Brand new ball game.

  132. LGY August 30th, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    What happened?

    I turned the game off because I was told it was over.

  133. YankFanCA August 30th, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Wow. Get our bullpen up. Can’t blow this comeback.

  134. JS August 30th, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Cahill lost his control. TIme to make him pay.

  135. JobaTipsHisCap August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

  136. Bronx Jeers August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

  137. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    I lovehow people gave up on this game in the top of the first

  138. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Swish continues from his hot streak in Chicago. Yanks need as many guys get hot at once. Just wish Jeter would get on a streak that points north..lol His bat is crucial to the flow of this offense.

  139. Rishi August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    ball 4?

  140. UnKnown August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Can’t make that baserunning mistake though. Like to see Thames get a shot in that inning.

  141. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    really?

  142. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    pathetic baseball by swisher. you can’t get double off there.

    a weak hack by posada.

  143. blake August 30th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Ok good…glad its not just mine then. Hope they get it straightened out soon because this isn’t very good.

    Not the best baserunning by Swish there.

  144. YankFanCA August 30th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    CBS said Posada popped out and Swisher was out at second. What happened?

  145. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    what terrible luck.

  146. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Bad, bad Swish. He really helped Cahill out there. That was something that Posada would do.

  147. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Swisher is such a bad baserunner. There was no way that ball was dropping in and even if it did drop he’d be either on third where he could score on an out or still in scoring position for the red hot Thames.

    With Cahill on the verge of totally imploding, there is no reason to take that kind of gamble in a tie game.

  148. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    Great job by the boys to pick up Mosely! Hopefully, Dustin will settle down now and make good with his do over :)

  149. xcv August 30th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    when the count is 3-1 you should only swing at pitch middle in. low and outside you let go even if it’s strike. could’ve really knocked cahill around. opportunity missed

  150. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Yeah following game online what happened there?

  151. Tabbert August 30th, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Can’t be too mad with swish… It was aggressive base running and he would have scored if it had fallen. Get mad at gardy for not being aggressive then get mad at swish for being aggressive? Sounds pretty silly.

  152. Frozen Rope August 30th, 2010 at 7:52 pm

  156. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    another opposite field attempt by these piggies. No offense to piggies.

  157. blake August 30th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Swisher got doubled off on a little flair by Posada. Have to make sure that one is down.

  158. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Jays get one back… Hopefully Roidtista will do to them what he did to the Yanks. It’s only fair!

  159. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Mosely is a 5 or 6 starter and he’s starting to pitch like it – but he’s really done a fine job. If he’s going to start blowing up, though, then bring in Gaudin………though it’s hard to do that after 1 inning as then you just kill your pen.

  160. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Sounds like bad baserunning… Did not see the play… Big hit though.. Yanks very creative in their ability to hit into dps

  161. Doreen August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Nice shut-down, clean inning for Dustin. Yeah!

  162. TR10 August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Mow em down Moseley

  163. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Moseley delivered just what the doctor ordered there in the second.

  164. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Moseley delivered just what the doctor ordered there in the second.

  165. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

  166. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    nice. i like when they dont give runs right back.

  167. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Agree Betsy never good going to bullpen in the second inning… However sometimes u have no choice

  168. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    nice bounceback inning from moseley. why is this loser daric barton standing there like that pitch wasnt a strike??? Against Buchholz, he’d have already been back in his dugout prior the pitch hitting the catcher’s mitt. Sit down you swine. No offense to swine!

  169. 108 stitches August 30th, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Whatever Eiland said to Mosely while the Yankees ralled has worked.

  170. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Nice job………..he’s got a lot to be proud of no matter what happens from hereon out

  171. blake August 30th, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Good job by Mosely there to get the A’s back on defense after the Yanks tie the game. Nice work.

  172. Frozen Rope August 30th, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Watch the stupid Blue Jays lay down for the Rays and play like world beaters against the Yankees – probably because Cito Gasbag is lining up his pitchers so we get Cecil and Morrow just like we would ALWAYS face Halladay and AJ (and let’s not even get into how he dominated the Yankees everytime but stinks this year)

    Tino and Kay talking about pitcher’s who go out and have “nothing” that day but still find a way to keep their team in the ballgame. They brought up AJ-when he has “nothing” he hasn’t been able to keep his team in the game.

  175. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

  180. jackamir August 30th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    Moseley settled down and gave us a quality 2nd. He wasn’t really hit hard in the 1st. His stuff moves and I like his pitch sequence—in & out.

    the fact that the Yanks miss Morrow is a big deal and gladly take it!

  190. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    The Jays would never shut down Morrow before a start against the Yanks. They never protect their pitchers and live to try and beat the Yanks.

    “This is the first time i have had problems with them. I need it because I live in Wash, DC and its the only way I can watch the Yankees. I didn’t even know there were pirated feeds out there lol”

    I’m in the same boat. I don’t have cable or satellite tv, so I’m limited to the internet for my Yankee games. I used to watch using sopcast, tvants, and like stuff, but the quality was never that great and I really believe in paying for services that I use all the time. But this year I’ve had so many problems with it, I question whether it is worth it to keep paying that kind of money in the future. If I pay for it, I expect it to work 99.9% of the time.

  226. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    That pitch that Jeter just grounded out on was a 90 mph sinker right down the middle. Eventually you have to figure that what he is doing is what he is, and if he hits like he has he is the worst every day hitter when the full lineup is in there.

    Where does the worst hitter on your team typically bat? I’ll give you a hint: Not first or second.

    We have a guy who hits 2/3 ground balls and has barely above average speed hitting behind our speediest runner who is a singles hitter. That’s brilliant lineup construction…

  247. m August 30th, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    Well..you could call the Yankees system a “pitchers mill”.

    I don’t see why we (or the writers) feel the need to pigeon-hole these young pitchers or write about their careers before they’ve even begun. I guess they didn’t learn with the Big Three.

    Just let them pitch.

    Ken, there’s no one that’s out there that’s any good. First, he assumes Andy isn’t coming back..silly. Now I agree Phil is an unknown, but if he pitches solidly down the stretch and he’s the 3rd starter…..he’d be going against other teams’ third starter.

    That’s all right. Thank goodness for atdhe.net. :D

    I have no problem watching that feed. I paid for mlb.tv and think it’s ridiculous that they think I ought to be blacked out for the Padres, Dodgers, Angels, Diamondbacks, Giants, and A’s. Yep, that’s 6 teams. I could handle the LA area teams (including the Padres). LA is about 300 miles away from me. But Phoenix and SF-Oakland are 600 miles away. Ridiculous.

  257. jackamir August 30th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    M, the least he could have done was ackowledge that Nova shows promise. His whole premise is so negative. I guess it’s ok for me to be that way, but I hate it when mediots do, lol

  265. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    Larish just pulled way off the previous pitch and was late on an 88 mph sinker on the inner half. So what brilliant pitch was called for next? The same location, except 3 mph slower. Wonder whether he was sitting on that?

  266. Brappy55 August 30th, 2010 at 8:24 pm

  271. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    What an absolute loser Larish is. This putrid weasel wont even suit up against the red sox – whether it’s this year or next year. he’ll fake an flu bug to get out of it. and if does play, he’ll sit on the bench after failing to make contact in an entire series.

  272. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Looks like a replay of Saturdays game.

    Nova pitched like a seasoned veteran yesterday. No doubt, if the B-12 investigation doesn’t get to him, he’ll be an asset down the stretch.

  273. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Moseley will be prone to HRs, I think, because his stuff is not good enough to where he can miss his spot and get away with it. At least not on a regular basis.

    He is what he is. Try to get enough innings out of him, with a lead hopefully, so you don’t torch the bullpen. But, as Joe has shown, have Vaz or someone ready so you can go to him at the drop of a hat.

  274. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    This is going to be an annoying game, but such is life with a starter like Moseley………….

  275. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    I think I go with Javy in the 5th.

    The third time around the order for Moseley is tough tonight because his command isn’t there in this start.

    Steve Goldman is a waste of time read.

    Another numbers nerd who is high on his own vapors.

    This is the team. There aren’t going to be any trades, and Cliff Lee isn’t walking through the door…..this year.

    Get Arod back on the fifth and Andy back in two weeks and I’ll take my chances with this group.

    —————————————————————————-

    Matt-

    What you’re saying isn’t unreasonable, but no manager in their right mind would move Jeter down the line-up at this point.

    He’s struggling, but with his career he’s earned the right to struggle. This isn’t just any #1 or #2 hole hitter we’re talking about. This is Derek Jeter. He’s the Captain. He hasn’t batted below the #3 slot in 14 years.

    Dropping him at this point will draw far more unwanted attention and point the spotlight much brighter on his struggles. You think Jeter, Girardi and Cashman want to deal with that during a pennant race?

    It didn’t work out so well when ARod got dropped down during his struggles. People still talk about that to this day. It’s just not going to happen.

  277. blake August 30th, 2010 at 8:29 pm

  309. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Matt,

    The ball ran back over the middle of the plate and missed location.

    They weren’t looking to throw it when it ended up.

    Dustin Moseley is who he is….a #6 or #7 starter.

    You grind through his starts and keep your expectations logical about what he can give you.

    They have scored 6 runs against the hottest starting pitcher in the AL in 4 innings without Arod.

    They will be fine.

  310. TheKiid August 30th, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    “wow what a lucky hit by Pena…..but hey its an RBI”

  315. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 8:34 pm

  316. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    Ramiro Pena is more aggressive on the basepaths than Brett Gardner. LOL!

  317. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    SJ,

    Did you even see where the target was? It was on the inside corner, right where the pitch ended up from Moseley. He threw it to the knees on the inside, except that was the pitch the hitter was obviously sitting on, and throwing a 3 mph slower cutter instead of the 88 mph 2-seamer is only going to help him out.

    It’s a dumb pitch to give away a run in a close game. If the guy pulls way off the first pitch on the inner half, you throw him a changeup down and away, and don’t just hand it to him on the next pitch.

  318. Erica in NY August 30th, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    :roll:

  319. Jeremy August 30th, 2010 at 8:35 pm

  320. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 8:36 pm

  325. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:37 pm

  326. Brappy55 August 30th, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Jeter is really wearing my patience thin

  327. LGY August 30th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    If no one responds to Matt he will go back to RAB to get the attention he wants.

  328. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Jeter can start by swinging at better pitches, hacking away isn’t going to help him. He is a rally killer now.

  329. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    And on the subject of Jeter, at this point in the season it has to be about winning, and not about protecting his poor feelings.

    Jeter is a big boy, he’s been in the league for a long time and he can handle being dropped in the order. He’d probably be the first one to tell you his performance warrants it. If Jeter is so selfish that he will cause a fuss about being dropped in the order even though he is killing the team right now, then he is not the player we thought he was and probably does not deserve anywhere near the contract he will end up getting.

    In fact, if he causes an issue over such a demotion, he should probably be stripped of his captain ship.

  330. Donna L August 30th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    How many innings can the Yankees go without scoring now before people start saying that their offense is terrible, pathetic, and inexcusable? One? Maybe two?

  331. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Gas grill. I know it doesn’t have the same flavor as the charcoal provides, but I marinate the heck out of the beef, and it gives us a real nice taste. Combined with a good cab sauvignon, and it don’t get much better :)

    I saw the target and that’s not where the pitch ended up.

    Do you know the scouting report on Larish?

    If you don’t, how can you complain?

    They wanted a sinker in because he tends to swing over it. Instead, the ball ran back over the plate.

    It happens. It’s baseball. You turn the page and move on.

  341. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    SJ,

    Except the pitch he threw was a cutter that was 3 mph slower.

    When a guy swings through an 88 mph fastball, you don’t throw him one 3 mph slower in the same spot, that’s only helping him out.

    He hit the glove, it was just a dumb pitch and he got burned for it. Just because you don’t like the outcome, it doesn’t mean you have to make up all of these excuses. Moseley does not throw hard enough to get away with mistakes like that.

  342. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    that 2-2 pitch was extraordinarily close. that out would have been big for moseley.

  343. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    I think I’ll take my chances with Derek Jeter, bad year or not.

    Dropping him down in the order creates more problems than solutions.

  344. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    I wonder if Vaz is warm now?

  345. Gehrig27 August 30th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Giggity. Giggity indeed, mr. Mosley

  346. Nick in SF August 30th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Matt, you remind me of Hurricane Gloria.

  347. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    c’mon throw striks please….

  348. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    If Suzuki gets on, Moseley should be out.

    Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 8:29 pm
    blake – had some leftover London broil, that I grilled last evening. Still tasty, if I do say so myelf.

    That Weber grill is the best. Ten years and still going strong.

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

    Joe, you must cook differently than i do. whenever I still taste the meal after I’ve finished, it’s usually for a different reason. I’m moving in with you and becoming part of your family.

  350. jackamir August 30th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Nick , You read my mind. These two are sleep inducers.

  351. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Vazquez should be in the game now. Girardi is going way too long with him.

    MOSELEY SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSS THIS GUY IS GARBAGE

  355. blake August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Joe,

    You’re making me hungry.

    Matt,

    Give it a rest. Jeter has struggled this season no question about it but they need his leadership and experience atop the lineup. Dropping him sends a message of doubt throughout the team. It won’t happen nor should it.

  356. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Quick hook-thank you Joe.

  357. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    left him in too long joe, trying to get him to qualify for a win.

  358. Brappy55 August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Girardi also is a moronic brace-face

  359. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Je didn’t hit the glove. You don’t know what you are talking about.

    Look at the play again. Posada moved his glove to try and catch it AWAY from the target.

    You get so crazed, you lose the ability to think in these game threads.

  360. Tabbert August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Jetty will soon have a lower average then Tex.

  361. bankers hours August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Get Moseley out, he doesn’t have it tonite, let’s bring in our $11.5m mop up reliever.

  362. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Derek Jeter has shown no signs that he will ever turn it around this season. He’s only gotten worse as the year has gone on, and he has shown little ability to catch up to even league average fastballs on the inner half.

    I’ll take my chances with hitters who have proven they can hit major league pitching, rather than one who has the lowest OPS of any regular in the lineup. He hits 2/3 ground balls and does not have much speed to beat them out, so he’s pretty much useless. All he’s good at is erasing their runners by hitting into DP’s with a chance to do some damage.

    Would you rather lose because Jeter bangs into a DP in a close game, or answer a few questions to the media and let the big boy handle himself?

  363. Carl August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Could you give him a clean inning Joe? Damn.

  364. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    really javy.

    why not logan.

  365. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    lol looks like Girardi means business short leash for Mosley…

  366. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Moseley should of been out of the game after the 1st walk. Bad job by Girardi. The leash is way too long for a pitcher like him.

  367. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    What in the world are you talking about SJ? That was on the black at the knees on the inside corner, right where Posada was setting up.

    The only one who is crazed and has lost the ability to think is you. Larish may have hit that for a home run even if it wasn’t a strike, because he was clearly sitting on the pitch and Moseley obliged.

    It is the exact same reason why they have told Hughes to tone down the use of his cutter. When a hitter is late on his 94 mph fastball and you throw him a 90-91 mph cutter, you’re only helping him out by speeding up his bat.

    If you can’t see that, then you clearly are not paying attention to the swings of the hitters.

  368. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    potentially big spot for Vasquez

  369. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    Tough spot for Vazquez. Asking a struggling starter to come in with 2 guys on base..

  370. Mike_Boston August 30th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    That’s weird, the mlb.com media player is back to the old. I wonder if they got so many complaints that they rolled back the changes? Mine crapped out a few minutes ago and crashed my browser, after that it’s back to normal.

  371. Brappy55 August 30th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    This game really is a must-win at this point.

  372. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    GB – just bring some good drink. I’ll even take in that randy guy. Just not that beast that keeps lurking for you.

  373. hardwired7 August 30th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    luckily, Javy is used to working out of jams.

  374. Rob B August 30th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    I know neither pitcher has been very good in this game, but the umpire doesn’t seem to want to call anything low a strike. Kind of works against sinker ball pitchers.

  375. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say Jeter is more of a “big boy” than a crazed little boy on a baseball blog.

    They aren’t moving down any lower than two in the order.

    Whining for anything else is a waste of bandwidth because it’s not going to happen.

  376. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Why are you two discussing how Larish hit a mistake pitch or a pitch that tailed across the plate?

    The bottom line is WTH his name is LARISH would have been too AFRAID to pull the trigger against the Red sox. He’d have urine trickling down his legs.

    HOW WAS THAT NOT A DP????? You had Jack Cust running.

  377. Carl August 30th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    What was that

  378. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    And stop comparing it to them dropping A-Rod in the lineup, that is not even close to an equivalent situation.

    A-Rod had hit 36 HR that season and was one of the team’s best hitter who was just having a few bad games.

    Jeter has consistently been the team’s worst hitter over 544 AB’s over the course of most of a season.

    He’s also hitting only .259 with RISP, which is no shock because with runners on base he can’t hit the ball out of the infield.

    I’d rather win and worry about the fallout later than continue to give away runs by doing something that clearly is wrong.

  379. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    ahhh have to turn 2 their

    well i was wrong. javy made a great pitch

  380. jackamir August 30th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Javy pitches okay and he picks up the win. That play was in slo-mo.

  381. Brappy55 August 30th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    That needs to be a DP….looks like Cano didn’t get the grip on the ball.

    Let’s see what Javy can do

  382. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Damn that was an easy dp especially with Crusty running.

  383. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Matt The Mook must have the most miserable existence in history. A two run lead and can’t even enjoy it. Sell your TV, sell your computer and put us all out of your misery.

  384. syd_cash August 30th, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    @ Mike_Boston

    there was something wrong with MLB.com server…so they put the weird one up until they got the problem corrected.

  385. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    Watch the replay and watch Posada move his glove to track the pitch as it ran over the middle of the plate and not where he was set up.

    It’s really not hard to do since replays are easily available.

  386. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Kouzmanoff just fouled off that filthy pitch by Vazquez.

    He just fouled it off. Fouled it off. fouled it off. unbelievable. that pitch was so nasty, and he fouled it off. unbelievable.

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

    Sounds good to me. You can introduce me as your much younger nephew.

  388. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    So what SJ? Whether it happens or not is irrelevant, because the bottom line is that all of what we have seen on the field this year indicates that doing nothing is the wrong decision.

    If Girardi continues to do the same things and get the same negative results, then he is just a fool. Just because he’s there in the dugout doesn’t mean he always makes the right decisions. Saying that I have no right to complain because I post on a blog is just a pathetically weak counter argument at best.

    Jeter has proven throughout the course of an entire season that he is the worst hitter in this lineup. If you bat the worst hitter in your lineup 1st or 2nd, you’re going to get burned by it. If Jeter shows signs of turning it around, you can give him a chance to pull it together. But they’ve given him months and months and he has only gotten worse.

    At this point he is what he is. He’s 36 years old, you can’t expect him to magically find the fountain of youth again.

  389. bankers hours August 30th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Stop the Jeter bashing, he’s going to stay atop the lineup whether he deserves to or not. Here’s hoping if the Yanks hang on and make the playoffs he can rebound under pressure and save a poor season. Problem is the next few years and Jeter’s next contract. At 37 next year with limited range, limited power, diminished speed, and a 270 hitter he’s really worth about $5m/yr for about 2 yrs. He’ll never sign for that but it’ll be interesting how much he holds the Yankees hostage because he’s captain, he’s the face of baseball, and the face or the Yankees. It’ll be interesting. I’m guessing he’ll get $12m/yr for 3 years, anyone else venture to guess.

  390. Carl August 30th, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Come on Javy

  391. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

  398. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    GB – as Jackie Gleason used to say – “Hardy-har-har!”

    And that was a great throw by Jeter to end the inning. Say what you want about his range, but that guy still has a gun.

  399. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Ken Phelps,

    What a ridiculous question to ask. I guess I should ask you the same thing, since you never post anything baseball related on this blog, you just come here to incorrectly single out anyone whose posting you disagree with. Are you even a baseball fan, or are you just here to start flame wars?

  404. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 8:56 pm

  405. Mike_Boston August 30th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Makes sense syd_cash. Can you, or does anyone out there successfully use the dvr functionality on the player? Even though I installed the mlb.exe and have the premium mine has never worked.

    Captain saves the day on that one!

  406. Ace August 30th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    What’s worse than complaining about ump conspiracys? Complaining about Jeter and wanting him to hit in btm of order. Sorry. It ain’t happening

  407. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

  410. blake August 30th, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    Many SS’s make that play that way now because of Jeter and it really is a good way to do it. Much quicker than setting and throwing but requires excellent timing and arm strength. Beautiful to watch.

  411. hardwired7 August 30th, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    lol, im not complaining about umps tonight. So far, this game has been fair.

  413. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    The Yankees are 30 games over .500 and tied for the nest record in baseball Matt with Jeter hitting where he is hitting in the order.

    To say it’s the “wrong move” is incorrect.

    What you don’t understand about baseball at the professional level is the mental element to the game.

    The idea is to not mess with a players head and create more problems than solutions.

    On other words, you don’t mess with Derek Jeter’s head at this late date in the season.

    In the end, you get rewarded more for it.

    As in the great defensive play he made to end the 5th inning.

  414. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    Jeter’s contract is goin to be interesting?? No idea what the numbers could be

  415. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2010 at 8:59 pm

  424. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Jeter did a good job making that play given the situation in the game, but realize that Jeter needs to jump throw there because his diminished range prevents him from getting there in time to plant and get off a strong throw.

    Jeter has been a nice player for the Yankees, but it’s time to accept that he is no longer a superstar out there. Given the quality of shortstops in the AL, he’s still one of the best, but it’s not as clear cut as it once was.

  425. blake August 30th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    That was a pretty darn good pitch there from Cahill but Robbie can just hit everything….beautiful hitting.

  426. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

  428. CB August 30th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Just a beautiful at bat by Cano. He has wonderful plate coverage. He wasn’t well balanced as he swung but still kept his hands back enough to take the pitch the other way.

    You could just see in that at bat that he was just trying to get the run home.

    The days of being concerned about him with RISP and hitting 5th (never mind 4th) are a long time ago.

  429. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    “Jeter did a good job making that play given the situation in the game, but realize that Jeter needs to jump throw there because his diminished range prevents him from getting there in time to plant and get off a strong throw. ”

    no, he’s always made that play that way and so do a lot of other SS’s now. You really don’t have a clue sometimes.

    Well, here’s the thing. My husband is not a reactionary person. He asked (before Matt posted), how bad does Jeter have to get before he gets dropped in the lineup.

    I don’t think anything will be done; but it’s not an unreasonable or unaskable question and it’s not necessarily Jeter bashing to suggest that when you’re trying to win a pennant, you do what you have to do.

    We have seen though, that Joe Girardi believes his guys will work things through much better if they’re allowed to work it through where they’re comfortable. I don’t think you can argue with that. Was Girardi around when Torre overreacted by batting ARod 8th in the playoffs? I don’t remember.

    no matter what this team does it’s never good enough for some of you. Absolutely pathetic. They are down 3-0 to a tough pitcher and come right back and then take the lead, what more can you ask of them, 20 runs in one inning? What a video game mentality.

  443. Mike_Boston August 30th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    It’s not really a ripoff because up until this year I had basic and was able to watch which ever broadcasts. This was the 1st season they’ve made the basic really mean basic, on game 1 I paid and extra 20 for the season. It only took 3 innings of watching my first broadcast when I upgraded. I have a feeling the dvr part will work next year because they introduced premium 2 seasons ago, but there was really no advantage to having it until the next season, it was like a dry run.
    It’s still way cheaper than cable/sat packages, plus you can watch anywhere.

  444. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

  445. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    LOL Carl!

    Randy Johnson threw 97 with the Dbacks 6 months prior to pitching with us. With us, he threw 94.

    Vazquez threw – according to SJ44 and others – 93 mph with the Braves last year. Now, he’s down to 90 and with the dead arm, 87 mph.

    It’s just bad luck.

    Blake,

    I don’t have a clue? Ok, so watch every other shortstop in the league try to make a play on a ball hit 2 steps to their right. I’ll guarantee you they do not need to jump throw to get the out at first base.

    Watch video of Jeter making the jump throw plays in the past. He was on the outfield grass deep in the hole, he didn’t need to do it when he was standing practically in position like he does now.

    Take off your rose colored glasses and face the reality of what is on the field. Being realistic does not make you a “red sox fan,” it just makes you not delusional.

    Rodriguez has really remarkable arm speed. He throws extremely hard and doesn’t incorporate his lower body very much. It’s lot of arm.

  451. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    he pitches underhand

    Matt,

    Your 9:01 post may have been the dumbest thing you have ever written on here and that’s saying something.

    It was so laughingly incorrect it’s hard to believe anyone who follows baseball would believe such drivel.

    Nick Swisher is so much better when he’s taking the ball the other way. You can tell when he’s locked in because he starts going the other way more.

  462. Doreen August 30th, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Not a single fastball thrown to Bautista in that at-bat. And what do you know, struck him out swinging.

  469. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    Just a beautiful at bat by Cano. He has wonderful plate coverage. He wasn’t well balanced as he swung but still kept his hands back enough to take the pitch the other way.

    Chapman was hitting 105 multiple times over the weekend, the stadium and scouts both had the same reading, 105!! one of the scouts changed his batteries and it read 105 again.

    You could just see in that at bat that he was just trying to get the run home.

    The days of being concerned about him with RISP and hitting 5th (never mind 4th) are a long time ago.

    Many SS’s make that play that way now because of Jeter and it really is a good way to do it.
    ———————-

    Many SS’s TRY to make that jump throw. But the only one that I’ve seen make it anywhere near as well as Jeter is…Pena.

    Watching Jose Reyes try to make that jump throw is hilarious. He doesn’t have the arm strength for it.

  479. MG August 30th, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Matt must have pushed a kid out of his way to get an autograph once and was blown off by Jeter because he was being a jackass.

    Jeter isn’t the player he once was but he’s still the heart and soul of this Yankees team, that’s good enough for me. He’s probably playing through an injury, that’s about the only thing that would explain his lack of pop.

    Eddie Feigner threw underhand – not always easy to hit.

  481. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Are you seriously going to nitpick at one word in my entire post?

    Jeter has rarely been the best player on his own team. I’m not saying he’s not a great player, but people give him credit that he does not deserve. Jeter was not a big contributor to the majority of their championships, he was rarely the best player on his own team.

    He is incredibly valuable because he plays an up the middle position, but Jeter was maybe the 3rd best shortstop in the AL in those years when he was in his prime.

    I give Jeter all the credit in the world for the great years he had with the Yankees, but at least I have the objectivity to acknowledge when he’s getting near the end.

  482. Jerkface August 30th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Doreen,

    A first ballot HOF’er, with 5 rings, 4 Gold Gloves, and 11 All Star appearances, and a WS MVP has been a “nice player” for the Yankees. lol

    Youth is often wasted on the young.

  486. CB August 30th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    “I’d like to substitute Swisher for Cano after his at bat.”

    I was thinking the same thing. They’ve both had great years because they’ve changed their approaches at the plate and stuck with those alterations.

    Granderson is the next guy on the list. He’s already looked much better. An off season of work will do him wonders.

    And when I say he was not a “big contributor,” I don’t mean that he wasn’t good in the postseason, I simply mean that he never really carried a team like we saw A-Rod do in the postseason last year.

    They won those years because they got tremendous pitching and big hits up and down the lineup. But if you look, a lot of the really big hits came from the guys around Jeter. Jeter has been a great player, but he’s not the center of this team like you guys think.

    Thames has a lot of raw power.

    That raw power against a 97 mph rodriguez fastball – that’s a lot of kinetic energy involved in that collision.

    That was a shot. He is bull strong.

    Very impressive at bat for Thames against a RH pitcher. He’s been an absolute life saver for them this season.

  525. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    MG,

    It’s more personal than that.

    I’m guessing Jeter must have gotten Matt’s sisters phone number and never called her.

    Something along those lines.

    To actually say he’s been a “nice” player for the Yankees as if he was nothing shows a personal hatred that goes deeper than just being a whiny fan.

  526. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    Exactly Kevin, but some people are still in denial about it so it still has to be discussed.

    Jeter has been so bad this season that it makes you think it’s more than just a down year. If he’s been injured all year to the point that it’s affecting him this much, then he’s only hurting the team by not taking some days off to rest and get back to near 100%.

    When A-Rod comes back, they can afford to give Jeter more days off to help him bounce back from his injuries.

    People ripped Vazquez in 2004 for pitching through an injury and costing the team big time in the playoffs, but nobody will dare call out Jeter for doing something very similar.

  527. DocTodd August 30th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Good question by Kay. When Fat Elvis returns, who do you play? Thames or Berkman? I’d play the hot hand, which is Thames.

  530. Jerkface August 30th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Thames is a notorious streak hitter, when he gets on streaks he will hit HRs in bunches, like 4 in a week, 5 in a row, stuff like that.

    He is en fuego right now, maybe even as hot as the time he hit 8 HRs in 7 games.

  531. Doreen August 30th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Matt -

    Yes, I am going to nitpick one word. Because of the context of everything else you write.

    It doesn’t matter that he hasn’t been the greatest player on his own team. He has been one of the most consistently excellent players on his own team if not THE most consistently excellent player on this team for years. A “nice” player is a Swisher, or even a Pena. Not a Jeter.

    I think you are very careful about the words you use and you know what you were writing and the effect if would have here.

  532. YankFanCA August 30th, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Look at how many good swings the yankees are getting off of rodriguez despite the fact that he’s sitting 97-100.

    Not only are they getting good swings on him – they are pulling balls strongly.

    100 mph fastball and it’s not close to good enough because he can’t locate it.

  543. Mike_Boston August 30th, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    Sorry but a lefty throwing 105 isn’t just another hard thrower. He has the potential to dominate and will be a difference maker in the NL this fall, me thinks.

  544. JM August 30th, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    Yeah, hard to hate Marcus since that walk-off against the Sox. Also he hit a walk-off on the Fourth of July in the 10th when it was 100 degrees and my friends wanted to leave but I got them to agree to stay for one more inning (we had been sitting in the sun all day). So I will always love him for that. :)

  545. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    I said he was a “nice” player, so what? Do I need to say he was the greatest player of all time or is that not good enough for you guys either?

    I have nothing against Jeter, I just am not too delusional to blind myself to the fact that he is not anywhere near the player he once was.

    And even when Jeter was at his best, he was still not as good as Nomar and A-Rod. Oh no, I went there.

    Sorry that I think with my head and not my heart. I guess that makes me a “red sox fan” or a “met fan” or a “hater.” Boo hoo, cry more about it.

  546. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    With a 7 run lead, does Girardi give any thought to taking Vasquez out and saving him for Burnett’s start in case he’s needed?

    Okay we get it ! Everyone knows Jeter is on a decline. He is getting older and his career is almost over. So why are you still talking about this ?

  548. Gehrig27 August 30th, 2010 at 9:18 pm

  551. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    Lost in the onslaught of the last couple of innings is how big of a hit had back in the 4th inning to bump the lead back to two runs.

    So if Phil Hughes had the kind of outing that Trevor Cahill had today how bad would the over analysis and cries of of disappointment be?

    No length, throws too many pitches, can’t put hitters away, can’t get out a good line up, etc., etc.

    It’s all part of being a young pitcher. Games like this are always going to happen. There’s always a ton more for them to learn and adjust to.

    It would be interesting to go back to the archives during spring training and pull up all the posts about how bad Thames is, how he should be cut, how Jon Weber was better, how he couldn’t hit right handed pitching, etc, etc, etc.

    this guy is a professional hitter who can get hot, a perfect guy for the bench on a pennant winning team. He’s going to play every day until he cools off, which is probably about the time Berkman is ready to not only get back in the lineup but start contributing.

  562. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    And I am nowhere saying Jeter has not been a good player, but I’m not going to give him credit he doesn’t deserve. He’s a hall of fame player, but he’s not that player now and you have to accept that.

    They kept treating Bernie like he was the 1998 version of himself when he was on his last legs in the mid 2000′s, and his defense was killing the team every night he was out there. Eventually you have to accept the reality and act accordingly.

    What A-Rod did last year in the playoffs is something that Jeter has never really been good enough to do despite being the great player he is. This is really A-Rod’s team right now, the baton has been passed

    “They actually had the nerve to show the Thames catch on that play and then abruptly cut it off. I guess the throw wasn’t highlight worthy.. lol”

    Erica, the catch was pretty darn good for a 1st time 3B. The throw? Not so much.
    ******************

    I just thought it was hilarious that they cut it off the way they did

  564. Laura - I Bleed Blue August 30th, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    “And even when Jeter was at his best, he was still not as good as Nomar and A-Rod. Oh no, I went there.”

    Far be it for me to agree with Matt on ANYTHING, but I do agree that when Alex was at SS, he was better than Jeter. I disagree on Nomar though.

  565. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    “not as good as Nomar”.

    The most ridiculous thing ever posted on this blog. What are Nomar’s postseason stats again?

  566. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    CR9-

    I’m not going to get in on the Jeter bashing, but if he’s injured, he should really do his best to get healthy. He’s doing more harm than good by trying to play through injuries, should they exist.

  567. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    IIO

    Ive said the same thing, but Jeter only knows one way. And that’s to fight through injury to try and help the team. He may not help the team, but he always gives max effort.

  571. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    And for everyone who bashes me, I was the one advocating that Thames should have been DH’ing against RHP and LHP when Miranda was platooning with him and guess who were the fools who kept saying he couldn’t hit righties?

    All of the same idiots who continue to bash me because they are too delusional to see the performance on the field and the changes in players’ approaches that suggest they may be able to hold down the role.

  572. mick August 30th, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Matt, the Yanks are winning, why are you here?

    Who’s Nomar? Never heard of the guy.

  574. MG August 30th, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    this is going to be the second cheap win for Vazquez this year, he’s taken on the Aceves vulture role of swooping in for wins …

  575. Laura - I Bleed Blue August 30th, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    “This is really A-Rod’s team right now, the baton has been passed”

    Okay, now you’re sniffing glue. What Alex did last year in the postseason has changed how many fans view him. However, this isn’t his team. Jeter could be hitting .100 and people will feel like the Yankees are his team. He is the face of the franchise and always will be as long as he wears the pinstripes. Alex will create many lasting memories as a Yankee, but as long as Jeter is around, this will never be his team. I bet you he would even agree with that.

  576. mick August 30th, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Point being Thames has been hot while Alex has been on the DL, get it?

  577. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    So, does Vaz now qualify for a vulture win?

  578. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    CR-

    This is why I’m a little skeptical that he’s injured and not just having a down year, if he was truly hurting for this long, wouldn’t Girardi FORCE him to sit out a bit until he’s feeling better? Obviously Jeter isn’t going to take himself out of the lineup, but I would think someone in the organization would convince him to get better so he can contribute more effectively down the stretch.

  579. Jeremy August 30th, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    CR9
    Sorry but Jeter is on a decline. He is not going to get better down the line the same with A-rod. I’m not saying that we should get rid of them because they can still be productive and Jeter is the face of the franchise. But their best days are behind them.

    I just don’t understand why Matt has to tear Jeter down. Go to NESN and become a Red Sox fan Matt.

    Good points, but I believe Jeter plays through injury every year. I also believe that this injury is more severe; I cant imagine a 100 mph fastball not really hurting someone’s hand.

  584. Mike_Boston August 30th, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Javy’s found his new role for the stretch run and beyond, or does Joe give him another shot before the P.S.?

  585. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Laura-

    Exactly. The Yankees will be Jeter’s team long after he’s retired as a player. He’s going to take Dimaggio and Mantle’s place as “THE” living Yankee. I was never a big fan of him, but to dispute those facts is to ignore really.

  586. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Javy has looked better in these 2 relief appearances than he’s looked most of the season.

  590. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Jeremy

    I dont believe that ARod and Jeter are both on a decline. Perhaps a down year; perhaps injury – definitely injury with ARod. But they’ll be back. They are too professional not to be.

  591. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    1997-2003:

    Nomar- .325/.372/.557 169 HR 77 SB 1210 Hits
    Jeter- .319/.393/.467 117 HR 164 SB 1351 Hits

    Postseason stats are too small of samples to make meaningful insights about the overall abilities of a player.

    If you want to go on about postseason numbers, than A-Rod must have been nowhere near as good as a ton of mediocre players from the late 2004 postseason to 2007.

  592. Carl August 30th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Javy is saying. Gimmie my job back!

  593. MG August 30th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    back in the old days, when Casey Stengel managed the Yankees, he would rearrange the rotation so that Whitey Ford could pitch against the good teams and some of the lesser starters would face the Washington Senators and Orioles (before they were any good). It’s late in the season but if I’m Joe Girardi I’m thinking that CC gets that treatment and guys like Vazquez pitch as much against the bad teams as possible-he’s throwing so much better tonight than he has in a month it’s unbelievable.

  594. Jeremy August 30th, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Also Matt this will never be A-rod’s team. No matter what he does. First of all A-rod is not a homegrown Yankee. Second, Jeter is the captain of the team. Third, A-rod has been involved in too many scandals to be considered the face of the franchise.

  595. antisocial scrooge August 30th, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    javy looks good. moseley to the ‘pen?

  596. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Tear Jeter down?

    Jeter has been the worst hitter in this lineup thus far this season. He’s been worse than Granderson even.

    Facts are facts. If you can’t accept them, then that’s your problem. I’m not a Red Sox fan, I’m just not blinded by my loyalty.

  597. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    That’s hardly considered vulturing a win. He came in with tying runs on base and nobody scored and haven’t since Vazquez came in.

    He has looked great coming out of the pen in every appearance. Looks smooth, comfortable and in total control.

  598. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    The one thing you DON’T do Matt is think with your head.

    It’s all pure childish emotion.

    That’s why you only show up when they losing, consistently cry about the offense as if they must score 12 runs per night, and now offer analysis of Jeter that doesn’t pass the laugh test.

    It’s ok in the grand scheme of things.

    However, don’t pass yourself off as some objective, level headed commentator on this team.

    You are anything but that and all of us here know it.

  599. Pepitone August 30th, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    I think Jetes will come back next year with his old swagger and numbers. He may win the comeback player of the year award for 2011.

    Of course, I would take him over 95% of the shortstops in the league now anyway – injury, down year, or not.

  600. pat August 30th, 2010 at 9:30 pm

  602. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    The fact that Arod switched positions (while he was the best shortstop in the game) shows his place with the Yankees and he has played great defense at 3rd.

  603. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    So if I’m not objective, what does that make you, SJ?

    You are beyond delusional when it comes to this team. You think you know more than everyone else so you go around flouting your arrogance at anyone who has the nerve to disagree with you, but all you are is someone who can’t accept reality.

  604. Laura - I Bleed Blue August 30th, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    Jeter is batting .270. That’s a down year for him. Is he injured right now? I believe so. Has he been injured all season? Don’t know, but it’s possible. As Yankee Captain and a 5 time World Champion, does he deserve more respect than Matt is giving him tonight?

    ABSOLUTELY!!!

  605. stuckey99 August 30th, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    7 run lead and we’re talking about the guy who’s 0-4?

    Yeah, sounds about right for here.

  606. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Matt-

    But yet six years of a fifteen year career are a large enough sample size? I guess you have to make that comparison because Nomar didn’t play many more years than that. Your problem is that you think baseball is played on a stat sheet instead of a field.

  607. hardwired7 August 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Javy is also pitching for a contract. he needs to turn it on now and guarantee himself some post-season innings to maximize his next contract.

    I hope he keeps it up, and gets a nice contract from another team next yr. he seems like a decent guy, and his failings have not been from lack of effort.

  608. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Jeter .268

  609. Jeremy August 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Matt
    So what ! Jeter should retire as a Yankee period ! I don’t care if he is on a decline which it seems like he is but he has given everything to the fans and this franchise and he is the face of this franchise. So can you just shut up because your diatribe is getting old.

  610. jacksquat August 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Don’t really want into the Jeter discussion because he is not hitting lower than 2nd even if he is hitting like an 8/9.

    But I really hope I’m not going to hear “he must be injured” for the rest of his career because he never says if he is or not.

  611. BBFan August 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Matt is dominating this thread and many are falling prey to him by responding to him.

  612. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    triple for da cycle. do it.

  615. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Jeter is still one of the best shortstops in the AL, but he is not one of the best hitters in this lineup. That’s all I’m saying, and it’s backed up by all of the numbers and all of the obvious performance on the field.

    I get it, we all know what Jeter has done in his career with this team. However, every player reaches the point where they are not the player they once were. Jeter may have reached that point, or he may be battling a lot of injuries. If it’s the former, then you need to acknowledge the kind of player he is now. If it’s the latter, then he needs to take some days off to rest and stop hurting the team.

    No matter how you look at it, Jeter is hurting this team right now. If it were Vazquez going out there not 100% physically and getting creamed, you’d be bashing him like no other.

  616. Doreen August 30th, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Where is Nomar now?

    Longevity counts, Matt.

    And, it doesn’t matter even if Jeter were not the best of the three best SS in the league at the time. You don’t seem to understand that Jeter has it all over those two when taking EVERYTHING into consideration.

  618. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    No, Jeter has not been worse offensively than Granderson.

    How can you say something so factually incorrect and pass it off as being objective?

    Ignoring Jeter’s post-season numbers when comparing him to Nomar is also dumb.

    Good lord, do you even understand what you are writing? Or, are you just too far gone to see it?

    ——————————-
    100% agree with you, Laura. He’s not hitting well but he’s hitting in some bad luck, like the hit taken away from him yesterday with Gardner on 2nd. He’s also hit a bunch of line drives that have been caught. At the end of the day, though, it doesn’t matter, he is just as likely to pull out of it (like he did in 2004 when he was below the Mendoza line in May) as slump the rest of the season.

  620. CB August 30th, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    That was a very encouraging at bat for Tex. He’s had a number of good cuts. With that padded ring it doesn’t look like that bone bruise by his thumb is affecting his swing too much.

    Very good to see. He’s a fairly top hand heavy hitter and it’s good to see that the injury to his back hand isn’t hindering his swing.

  623. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    TheStraw,

    What in the world are you talking about?

    I said that when Nomar was playing that Jeter was not as good as him. So I picked the years that Nomar was playing regularly, what is wrong with that?

    You’re right, baseball is not played on a stat sheet. But even on the stat sheet Nomar still was a better hitter than Jeter, and probably just as good a defender. You don’t need stats to see that, you could watch the players play on the field.

    And since baseball is played on the field, why don’t you go watch Jeter’s performance on the field right now instead of citing things he did 5 years ago.

  624. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    To sum up, Nomar can’t hold Jeter’ s jockstrap or his five rings.

  625. jackamir August 30th, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    I love Jeter but I’ve got to say he probably only gets 2 years, 40 mil.

  627. BBFan August 30th, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    But the result seems to be that many of his drives are dying down on the warning track.

  629. Jeremy August 30th, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    The fact that Matt said that Nomar is better than Jeter shows that he is a Red Sox fan. Even many Red Sox fans don’t even say Nomar was better than Jeter because it’s plain wrong.

  630. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    “No matter how you look at it, Jeter is hurting this team right now. If it were Vazquez going out there not 100% physically and getting creamed, you’d be bashing him like no other.”

    We’re in 1st place. How is Jeter hurting the team? If he hit better, would we be in plus 1st place? :P

    Javy is a pitcher. When he has a bad game, that truly hurts the team. Jeter is one player, one hitter. You can’t compare the two.

  632. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 9:37 pm

  635. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    The reality of this team Matt is they are 31 games over .500, tied for the best record in baseball, and will have a chance to defend their World Championship.

    You know, the one YOU said they had no chance to win last June.

    That’s reality. You just have a hard time with it.

    —————————————–
    I would think he will move CC in the rotation so that he pitches in both series against the Rays. Right now he would miss one of them. It wouldn’t take much since the Yankees have extra starters with Andy getting ready to return in a couple of weeks.

  637. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    Where have I said Nomar has had a better career than Jeter?

    I’m merely saying that when Nomar was playing regularly, he was better than Jeter. It was a subject of a huge debate between Yankees and Red Sox fans who wanted to have the better shortstop as part of the constant back and forth between the fans.

    If you are going to twist my words to say something completely different, then you’re just not paying much attention.

    Granderson- wOBA- .329
    Jeter- wOBA- .321

    If Granderson batted at the top of the order and didn’t miss a month of the season I’m sure he’d have just as many runs scored as Jeter. Granderson’s average is lower, but he’s still more productive because he can hit the ball out of the infield.

  638. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    Vazquez is looking good tonight.

  639. HipHipHorHay August 30th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Somebody probably already said this, but back when Tex was hitting like .210 if you would have said he’d finish the year with a better average than Jeter, they would have sent the men with the little white coats to get you. Looking like that now. Come on Captain!

  640. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    ———————————————————————————————————

    If he’s injured, my guess would be that it’s the type of thing that will take more than a few days and probably won’t heal up until after the season.

    Either way, I’ll take Decline Jeter/Injured Jeter over Nunez/Pena down the stretch. I’ll also take Decline/Injured Jeter over most shortstops at 100%.

    A left side of Nunez and Pena while ARod heals up is even less appetizing.

  645. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    That’s priceless. I’m a Red Sox fan because I can admit when one of their players is better than one of ours?

    So I guess that Giambi was a better hitter than Ortiz in 2005, right? Because he’s a Yankee, he can never be worse than a Red Sox player.

    I hate the Red Sox plenty, but at least I’m not so delusional that I can’t give them some credit when they deserve it.

    GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 9:38 pm
    MG, Vazquez seems to be throwing harder with more command and movement out of the pen, doesn’t he?
    ———————–
    he’s back to throwing 88-90 instead of 85-87, it seems to make a big difference for him. Cahill has had an excellent year throwing 88-90, you don’t need more if you can locate the fastball. Vazquez threw a couple tonight that were right on the black, pretty much the same kind of pitches that Andy throws now or Mussina threw all the time in 2008. He’s probably pitching himself back in the rotation shortly, it looks like Moseley’s time is just about up now that he’s been through the league once.

  658. Pepitone August 30th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    The trouble with you Matt is your arrogance toward those on this blog who know what they are talking about.

    SJ44 is one of the most knowledgeable baseball people on this blog, and you show complete disregard, and disrespect, for his comments.

    I have been reading his thoughts on baseball for the past three years, and he has brought up some of the most insightful comments on here. There are others as well, CB, Pat M. et. al.

    As a matter of fact I look for their comments whenever I scroll through game comments, because they always add something to the enjoyment of the game.

    You add very little, except complaining and whining. Most of us have had enough of your kind of “intelligence” and “realism.”

  659. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Be careful what you say CR9, because Giambi was outed too as a user.

    There’s a difference between hating a rival, and just being plain irrational.

  660. CB August 30th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    “But the result seems to be that many of his drives are dying down on the warning track.”

    Curtis’ swing looks much better but he still isn’t fully used to having more time to react to the ball. Before when his swing was longer he had to get all of the machinery of his hitting mechanics started much earlier.

    Now that he’s more direct to the ball he doesn’t need to start as soon. He can wait and keep his hands back more because he has such quick wrists.

    But he’s still in the habit of reacting early like he needed to when he had the longer swing. So in a number of his at bats he’s leaking and because he’s opening up sooner than he needs to his hands are coming forward early and it’s robbing him of power.

    Take that last at bat he had – on one of the 97-98 mph fastball rodriguez threw Curtis pulled foul to the extreme right. To pull a high 90′s fastball to that extent means you are both very quick with your hands but also too early.

    Curtis has fouled off pitches like that frequently since the changes he made.

    He’s going to need to keep working on readjusting his timing and keeping his hands back. He’s going to need to get more acclimated to letting the ball travel more deeply to him.

    When he does that he plus raw power is going to get unleashed more consistently and those balls only making it to the warning track are going to start going over walls.

  661. MG August 30th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    when was the last time Javy threw a 90 mph fastball by anyone? Whatever the cause of his dead arm, it’s over, he’s throwing free and easy again.

  662. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    In your opinion, would you leave Javy in the pen the remainder of the year, its strange how he seems to pitch better in that role (at least for the Yankees).

  664. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Matt

    Giambi wasnt a user – with the Yankees! :lol:

    He was Oakland A steroid user Giambi.

  665. jackamir August 30th, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Javy has found his groove. Can he pitch against the A’s all the time. He could be Cy Vazquez.

    It depends on how AJ does in his next start.
    If he does poorly, it is AJ who will be sent to BP to fix his rorblems

  667. Doreen August 30th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    CB –

    In an interview I read with Kevin Long about Granderson, it sounded like he was saying what he did with Granderson was a start, that there’s more to do. But what he has done has already made such a difference. And it’s clear Granderson is serious about fixing this.

    Javy gets the start this Sat. vs Tor.
    Mark it down.

  670. Matt August 30th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    And if Giambi didn’t use them with the A’s, maybe his body wouldn’t have broken down while he was with us and he could have given us some more productive years than he did.

    When they perform on the field you don’t mind it, and Giambi did for the most part so people overlook it, but you can’t rip Ortiz for it if it was ok that Yankees players did it. It was great to see that Ortiz had used them too so Red Sox fans would shut up about Yankees players, but trying to rub it in their face is stupid because both teams are guilty of it.

  671. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Aceves had another bad outing with Scranton. 1.1 innings, 2 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. 7.36 ERA at Scranton. Overall in 10.1 innings, a 6.10 ERA. 12 hits, 7 earned runs, 5 walks

  672. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Granted, this Oakland team is a weak hitting team, but Vazquez has shown better velocity, location and is mixing up his pitches. If AJ has another bad outing, I’d like him to be “bullpenized.” It’ll probably be Moseley, however, as it looks like Javy can help as a starter now.

  673. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Yes. javy gets next start over mosely or aj. He just needs extended rest I guess…

  674. blake August 30th, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Do you let Javy finish this one out if he can?

  675. mick August 30th, 2010 at 9:50 pm

  681. Erica in NY August 30th, 2010 at 9:52 pm

  682. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    Yeah you can. You can do whatever you want. David Arias was a nothing low life dirt pile before he injected himself and became Ortiz. A nothing. A zero. A swine. A rat. No offense to zeroes, nothings, swine and rats.

    The difference is that the Yankees own up to their use [albeit after getting caught] unlike BOS players, who lie and say that they don’t know what they took – they just know that it wasn’t steroids.

  685. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    I dont think javy is pitching better because he is coming out of the pen..i wonder if he is pitching better because he got some extended rest for his tired arm??

  686. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Javy at 42 pitches. Give him another 42 if he’s still pitching well, and call it a night.

  687. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    i agree.. moseley/javy/aj are battling for two spots moving forward.

  688. -Matt- August 30th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    I’ve also always wondered if a team could run two starters on a day once rosters expand (i.e. Vazquez for 4 innings + Mitre/Gaudin for 4 innings every 5th game)

  689. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

  695. CB August 30th, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    Doreen-

    This is just the start for Curtis. I’m very surprised that he’s even come this far this quickly. But there is still work and most importantly muscle memory to rebuild.

    Remember that massive home run he hit on the last home stand – that was a swing where he waited on the ball, let it travel to him and then let his naturally fast hands do the rest.

    He’s going to get better.

  696. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    Ken-

    The problem is that the Media excoriates Alex, Clemens, Bonds, etc while giving Ortiz a free pass. And the biased Mitchell Report done by a part owner of the Sox did nothing to help matters and perpetuate the black hat white hat myth between the Yanks and the Sox.

    I agree to a point. But I don’t recall A-rod and a number of former Yankees coming out and saying they used. A-rod lied on national television. He only came out like Giambi when they got busted. Same with many Sox players and players in general who used steroids.

  707. CB August 30th, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    “Do you let Javy finish this one out if he can?”

    I think you really need to. He looks very good. Looks like he’s over that dead arm period. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of rest to get over it.

    They should give him innings today to work on his arm strength.

    I think Javy is fatigued from last season when he threw a lot of innings and struck out a ton of guys.

  708. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    Moseley earned his time and money, but he’s tailing off as he inevitably was going to do. The Moseley experiment is over.

  710. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    I wouldn’t put him back in the rotation yet. Let him find some stability in the pen first…………..If you put him back in the rotation, and he struggles again, then what – back to the pen ? That’s embarrassing. After Oakland, we play Baltimore, Texas and Tampa (or is it Tampa and Texas).

    SJ, I’m more inclined to let Moseley make his next start and let Vazquez clean up at the first sign of trouble. As long as he limits the damage to 3 runs, I’d stay with Moseley.

  714. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    yeah it makes it better when you are honest..but still steriods is ugly..no matter what…when you lie you like a jackass..see roger clemens for example and david ortiz bonds, etc.

  715. Laura - I Bleed Blue August 30th, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    “He only came out like Giambi when they got busted.’

    Jeremy, I said that they came out after getting caught. So we are saying the same thing. Ortiz, on the other hand, gets caught and still lies about it. The media, led by BOS loving ESPN, lets him get away with it.

  716. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    Also, Javy started his off-season workouts early…he got permission from the Yanks, who delayed the off-season workouts of CC, Andy and AJ; that could be it…..

  724. CB August 30th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    “Javy is throwing 90 now, but how much of that is coming out of the pen?”

    His role is very clear – he’s a long man. And he entered the game because the starter didn’t get through 5. He was going to be in the game for a while. His job today wasn’t to empty the tank over an inning or two.

    Javy I’m sure wants to get back in the rotation and the only way he can do that is to throw well over multiple innings.

    He came out throwing harder than he did in the first inning of his recent starts.

    Just the way he’s throwing now – his arm just looks much better.

    He could get fatigued now but I don’t think it’s just him being in the pen.

  725. bankers hours August 30th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Granderson is back to himself, 1 for his last 15, let’s face it he’s a 240 hitter with occasional power who can’t hit leftys. He needs to be moved in the off season. Gardner would be a better defensive centerfielder and the Yanks could look for another corner outfielder. He’s just unacceptable to patrol centerfield in Yankee Stadium. His contract is bad but not ridiculous, the Yanks could dump him if they’re willing to eat some of the next 2 yrs. Next year Crawford is available or Cashman could shop a trade for a corner outfielder, Granderson must go, he’s unacceptable and will go down as one of the Yanks worst trades of recent years.

  726. blake August 30th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    I agree that letting Javy finish this one out would be ideal as it would virtually give him close to the same work as a start and help keep him stretched out and sharp. He’s looked the best he’s looked in quite awhile.

  727. Donna L August 30th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Nomar had 6 good years. Six! And about eight seasons that were mediocre to lousy. The reason he played part time was that he wasn’t good enough anymore to play full time. And even during his six-year “good” period, there were maybe two individual seasons in which I think he was better than Derek. And not by much. (Compare their 1999 seasons, for example.)

    Matt’s argument is silly. You can’t just throw out the bad seasons and talk about a player’s “peak,” when the bad seasons outnumbered the good ones and the peak was so brief compared to Jeter’s. Talk about selectivity!

  728. Ace August 30th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Moseley is due to face the Blue Jays and Rzepczynski [had to look up the spelling of that Hebrew name]. Moseley will get his average run support of >7 runs per game, so yeah, he’ll probably get another start.

  735. -Matt- August 30th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    I think that Granderson is someone the Yanks should keep, but it would be interesting if they moved him for a starter if they REALLY wanted to sign Crawford (which I wouldn’t love them to do)

  736. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

  739. CB August 30th, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    Doreen-

    I think part of what they decide to do with Curtis is going to depend on what Kevin Long tells the FO. If Long says he can continue to work with Curtis and improvement is likely then they are not going to trade him.

    After Robbi Granderson has the second fastest hands on the team. I don’t think Long is going to put a ceiling on what Curtis can do with additional work.

    Is the -dashed- Matt the good Matt?

  741. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    david ortiz came off like a tool and looked really bad..ESPN gave him a pass…i think the union was behind his “answers” i think they were mad that his name and arods name got leaked..the union wanted to stonewall the investigation and that is part of the reason he said what he did…

  742. mick August 30th, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    Post registration imposter.

  743. Gehrig27 August 30th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Nomar = roid user.

    End of story. His mother told me.

  744. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    This guy has more than half his RBIs in this game against us. Now that we are winning, I can laugh at him! :lol:

  745. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Larish is doing well tonight. He was supposed to do this kind of thing with Detroit.

  746. mick August 30th, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Javy is reaching his limit.

  747. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    “Before anyone gets too giddy remember the A’s r the worst hitting team in the league. Relax with Javy”

    no one is giddy over javy..but his velocity is up.you have to admit that

  748. -Matt- August 30th, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    Yes, the -dashed- Matt is the good Matt

    Jeter was phenomenal and was a more valuable player than Nomar

    there, I proved it

  749. ac1 August 30th, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    i hope 50 pitches isnt his limit if he is going to start again this year.

  750. Gehrig27 August 30th, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Yankee trader….Hebrew? Try Yukilis..

  751. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    “arods name got leaked” lol where did you come up with that. nobody came to Alex’s defense the way they went running at 100 mph for Arias.

  752. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    It’s a tough call, about Vaz back in the rotation. But, I think I’d go with him over Moseley. The reason being – Vaz has won a lot of games in the majors, and there’s something to be said for that. I don’t buy the fear issues that people have brought up.

    Vaz has had a couple of good outings out of the pen, this time ’round, and Moseley has come back to earth a bit (maybe the hitters are learning to wait him out). Just like with Thames, you ride the hot hand.

  753. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Straw,

    “dash” Matt seems to be a different Matt.

    Unless the Yankees blow this lead, the other Matt is outside having a bonfire for his Derek Jeter posters.

  754. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    I don’t see the Yankees giving up on Granderson after they went hard after him and traded good prospects – that would be disappointing to me.

  755. UnKnown August 30th, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    I just don’t get how Javy seems like such a better pitcher out of the pen. I am convinced if he would’ve started tonight it would’ve been similar results that Dustin had. Just amazing.

  756. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    arod’s name got leaked on the list of 104ish players on that list that mlb did a few years ago..ortiz and arod where on the same list that was not supposed to be released to the public…yes no one came to his defense but that is what happen..

  757. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    Hebrew name?
    ———————————-
    mick-Yes. His real name was Rzepczynskistein, but they couldn’t fit it on the back of his jersey. :)

  758. BBFan August 30th, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    What are the chances Tex will have a triple and the cycle?

  759. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    Or maybe he’s just finishing another bowl of chowdah.

  760. Gehrig27 August 30th, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    Mike Kay deserves a monument in Monument Park.
    Discuss….

  761. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Yanking Javy in and out of the rotation doesn’t do anyone any good…..he is facing the A’s, after all. I’m not convinced yet…………..and there’s really no reason to take Moseley out just yet

  762. Nick in SF August 30th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Cue jokes about Nunez pulling a Jeter.

    :(

  763. Erica in NY August 30th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

  764. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    I’d like to see Vazquez finish this game and see what he does twice through the batting order before starting him again.

  765. mick August 30th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Rumplestiltzken is not a Hebrew name.

  766. Bx is Burning August 30th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Sure. Nothing says ‘Hebrew’ like Rzepczynski.

  767. SJ44 August 30th, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    The tough part about both Moseley and Javy is both guys tend to give up a lot of HR’s and the next start for that slot is against the Blue Jays.

    Day game and the ball flies here in day games.

    Tough call right now, IMO.

  768. mick August 30th, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    Sandy Koufax, yes.
    Rumple…whatever, no.
    Youk, no.

    Javy did pitch well against the Blue Jays in his only start against them.

    LMAO. Oh vey, what have I started??

  771. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    Will Matt McCoy play for the Blue Jays against us this weekend?

    If Matt McCoy starts one game, I will not post here……..until the Red Sox get gifted a game – by the umpires or the opposing team :)

  772. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    Betsy – I agree. As CB suggested, I think Kevin Long’s evaluation will carry a lot of weight. And, given his tools, and what they traded for him, I think they’ll wait it out another season before looking to move him. Unless Cash comes up with a offer he can’t refuse, Curtis will be on the team next year. Just my opinion.

  773. mick August 30th, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    I say Javy has a tough inning here.

  774. TheStraw August 30th, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    I would stick with Moseley for the Jays. If his sinker is working, he can probably neutralize the Jays better than Javy.

  775. Gehrig27 August 30th, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    Mick…. Youk is Jewish. For real.

    Any chance that the Yankees can slip in restitched baseballs….ones with rolled up socks inside of them?

  777. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    Joe, yep. The Yankees didn’t trade for this guy just to dump him………I’d be shocked if he’s not on the team.

    I hate the bandbox this stadium plays like

  778. Gehrig27 August 30th, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    Javy tossing pure molasses.

  779. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    You know, one thing I just thought of, as Matt Carson swings at one well off the plate. Maybe SJ or Pat M can comment.

    Is Vaz looking good, in this blowout, because the A’s batters are just hacking, to finish the game?

  780. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Really nice outing by Vazquez.

  781. CR9 August 30th, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Great performance and well deserved W Vazquez.

  782. Betsy August 30th, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Joe, that could be it…….and they aren’t a good team anyway. I would not be seduced by Javy’s good outing….

  783. Pat M. August 30th, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    CB, Curtis should start feeling comfortable with his new appraoch right about time for October baseball…I still say he’s going to impact the playoffs

  784. mick August 30th, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    The tantalizing Javy proved me wrong.
    Good job Javy!

  785. IIOIIOIIO August 30th, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    If we’re not going to give Vaz credit for pitching well against the A’s, what are we saying about Moseley’s job tonight?

  786. Doreen August 30th, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    What a great game by Javy!!!

    He looks like he’s been working on a few things, maybe making some adjustments. Terrific.

    :)

    CB

    I agree. And I think Long is going to be positive in his reports on Grandy.

    ***

    Great smile on Javy there!!!!

  787. Joe from Long Island August 30th, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    Betsy – then Fenway and Wrigley are guaranteed to bother you.

    Seriously, I don’t know that I call it a bandbox. When you have a well pitched game, the dingers seem to disappear.

  788. mick August 30th, 2010 at 10:22 pm

  789. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    Joe, when he came in with the lead runs on base, he had them swinging and missing just as badly then as at the end.

  790. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Doreen, not sure if you heard Vazquez’ post game interview, but he said the he and Eiland changed the arm angle.

  791. igotid88 August 30th, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    they should try AJ in relief to see if he turns it around

  792. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Nice job by Javy.

    I wouldn’t make a move for Javy going back into the rotation just yet, they might need him to take the slot that AJ is holding.

    Nice win. Nice to have a blow out to allow the team a bit of a breather. They could really use a series win which is tough given the 4 game series.

  793. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    Goodnight all. Nice interview with Javy afterward. He has worked on his mechanics and is ready to help the team win no matter his role, although he’d like to be back in the starting rotation.

  794. jesusmonterofordh August 30th, 2010 at 10:27 pm

  795. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    Of all the people to make an error that cost Toronto a win was Aaron hill’s two out error just before Pena’s 3 run homer. Hill’s one of the best defensive 2nd basemen in baseball.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
