Romero vs. Yankees

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

WEATHER: Little bit chilly but certainly not cold. Temperatures are supposed to dip into the 50s tonight. Very slight chance of rain.

UMPIRES: HP John Hirschbeck, 1B Wally Bell, 2B Laz Diaz, 3B Scott Barry

CANO GETS THE SILVER: Robinson Cano already has hit Gold Glove award. Before today’s game he’s receiving his Silver Slugger.

ROTATION SUCCESS: In their past five games, the Yankees starters have each held opponents to one earned run or less, good for a 0.76 ERA through 35.1 innings. That’s the Yankees first such five-game stretch since 2002 when Wells, Mussina, Pettitte, Hernandez and Clemens pulled off five straight with one earned or less.

FIRST THINGS FIRST: The Yankees have outscored their opponents 44-14 in the first two innings this season (24-6 in the first inning, 20-8 in the second).

WAITING FOR A DAY OFF: According to Elias, Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher have played every inning in the field this season. Last night Swisher kept his streak alive by moving from right field to first base when Andruw Jones came in to play the field.

UPDATE, 7:06 p.m.: During the Canadian national anthem, the Yankee Stadium scoreboard crew cut between shots of two different Yankees: Canadians Russell Martin and Rob Thomson. If there were a Missouri anthem, and it were played at the stadium, I feel confident I’d be on the big screen (as long as David Phelps weren’t called up at that point).

UPDATE, 7:43 p.m.: Opening an inning with back-to-back walks isn’t exactly good baseball, but Garcia got out of trouble with a ground out, strikeout, ground out and kept the Blue Jays from taking advantage.

UPDATE, 7:49 p.m.: Russell Martin doubles to give Freddy Garcia a lead. Man, that Brian Cashman really screwed up this winter.

UPDATE, 8:01 p.m.: Jose Bautista just crushed a home run to left. Line drive into the second deck. People sitting more than 300 feet away were in legitimate danger. It’s now 2-1 Blue Jays in the third.

UPDATE, 8:14 p.m.: It’s not often that an entire ballpark takes a second to decide whether it’s just witnessed an out or a homicide, but it just happened. Mark Teixeira lined a shot to the mound, and it surely would have taken Ricky Romero’s head off, except that he somehow caught the thing.

UPDATE, 8:43 p.m.: Garcia is flirting with disaster tonight, but he’s so far limited the damage and Robinson Cano’s solo home run has pulled the Yankees within 3-2 heading into the fifth.

UPDATE, 9:04 p.m.: Unbelievable. The Yankees got two infield singles, got incredibly lucky that the Blue Jays blew a triple play, then failed to score with the bases loaded and no outs.

UPDATE, 9:25 p.m.: Terrible throw by Robertson and a great slide by Bautista. It’s now a 5-2 Blue Jays lead after a strange top of the sixth.

UPDATE, 10:12 p.m.: Cano’s second homer of the night — he also has two walks — has pulled the Yankees within 5-3.

UPDATE, 10:29 p.m.: Strikeout and ground out with the bases loaded in the eighth. The Yankees are hitless with runners in scoring position.

    Good luck, Freddy!

  2. ry81 April 29th, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    Welcome back Cervelli !!!

  3. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    Go Yanks give Garcia some run support.

  4. Benny Blanco April 29th, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    Let the bugs bunny pitching commence.

  5. Benny Blanco April 29th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    Jose Baustista’s numbers dont impress me :)

  6. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Nice play Swisher.

  7. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Good play Swish….Freddy better get the ball down.

  8. Benny Blanco April 29th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Garcia is hanging his off-speed pitches.. Someone will deposit those pitches on the cross bx exp.. if he’s not careful..

  9. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    My boy Freddy.

    Fun to watch.

  10. Joe from Long Island April 29th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    I cannot fathom the depth of Freddy Garcia’s pitching knowledge. What he did to Juan Rivera was very, very good pitching. And not just in the pitches themselves, but how he attacked Rivera. I’m sure that pitch he bounced was done purposely.

  11. BoJo April 29th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    Garcia is closing in on the consecutive shutout innings record!

  12. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    That’s the DiceK i know

  13. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    but I thought Dice K was great now

  14. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Swish needs to stop swinging at balls up

  15. kd April 29th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    watching on gamecast. espn needs to get a picture of freddy with a yankees hat

  16. MG April 29th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Garcia doesn’t have much tonight, he’s going to have to scuffle to get through the order a couple of times, it will be interesting to watch him try to do it.

  17. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    They need score runs tonight

  18. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Walks come back to bite you. Come on Freddy throw strikes.

  19. kd April 29th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    double play time

  20. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Freddy is missing locations….hopefully he’ll settle in

  21. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Yankees can’t catch :(

  22. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    wow that’s what he needed.

  23. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Big K

  24. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Good job getting out of a jam.

  25. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Like watching Andy pitch a little bit almost.

  26. RhapsodyInBlue April 29th, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    Way to go Captain.

    Way to go Freddy!

  27. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Great job Freddy.

  28. RhapsodyInBlue April 29th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Lets get some runs.

  29. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    Jeter charges more ground balls than any other SS I think….he is great at coming in on the ball.

  30. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    wow that’s not even close

  31. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Cano walked….Yay! great AB

  32. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Cano takes a walk..yay!!!

  33. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Cano walked!

  34. Tyler April 29th, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    A walk! Robbie showing the patience, the world is coming to an end!

  35. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    2 ugly swings from Jones

  36. MG April 29th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    you watch Romero and it’s easy to project how Banuelos, who may have a better fastball and change, can really be a top pitcher in the AL when he’s ready.

  37. MG April 29th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    the Yankees really need to swing early in the count against this guy, when he gets ahead the curve and change are deadly

  38. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Martin is awesome.

  39. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Martin is a animal!

  40. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Go Martin

  41. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Thought that was a hr

  42. kd April 29th, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    mg, are you saying that manban has a better fastball and change right now?

  43. MG April 29th, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Martin is the modern day Thurman Munson, good luck trying to take away his job anytime soon…

  44. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    My Favorite Martin!

  45. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    banuelos change is better right now….Romero is good though, I’d take him in a heartbeat.

  46. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    Talk about a wide strike zone….

  47. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    hey still a better swing by Gardner….good AB by him. He’s coming out of it hopefully.

  48. kd April 29th, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    it’s too bad that the jays would never trade him to us

  49. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    To many walks.

  50. blake April 29th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    can’t keep walking the lead off man and get away with it.

  51. MG April 29th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    kd April 29th, 2011 at 7:51 pm
    mg, are you saying that manban has a better fastball and change right now?
    —————————-
    you can’t say that because Banuelos is pitching in AA and Romero is the Jays #1 starter.

    You can say that Banuelos may throw harder and seems to have a great change, he needs to show it over the full course of a season and late in games, something he hasn’t shown yet.

    I’d take Romero in a heartbeat so if Banuelos is at the same level in a couple of years the Yankees will be in great shape.

  52. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    It seems like the bullpen is going to be in game very early tonight. Hopefully Garcia can battle for as long as he can but he obviously doesn’t have great stuff or command.

  53. blake April 29th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    I can’t stand Bautista….you can’t walk guys in front of him.

  54. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Of coruse roids hits another one

  55. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Nice pitch. Why anyone throws middle in to him is retarded. Freddy looks bad.

  56. Triple Short of a Cycle April 29th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Why does the team keep on pitching to him???????????????????

  57. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Bautista against Garcia – a recipe for disaster.

  58. jacksquat April 29th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    I would just hbp that guy every time he came to the plate.

  59. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Make that Bautista against anyone. Geez.

  60. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Damn, keep walking guys…..

  61. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Throwin bp. It was only about time freddy came back down to earth. He’ll be serviceable, but he’s really gotta be on to succeed.

  62. ac1 April 29th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    who is the long man now that Colon is in the rotation?

  63. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    Garcia is going to get tattooed with the stuff that he has tonight

  64. kd April 29th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    thanks mg. it’s going to be fun watching manban break into the bigs.

    i hope he’s the 5th starter next year

  65. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Given the makeup of their lineup, there is no way I would ever not force Baustista to hit the pitchers pitch or take a BB.

  66. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    So sick of Jose Bautista man

  67. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    Garcia has a good splitter, he’s going to have to use it more and forget about the slider tonight…

  68. jacksquat April 29th, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    Yes, make the rest of the lineup get it done.

  69. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    What will it take for them to brush back Bautista??

  70. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    I am curious what the magic potion is that Bautista has found that is obviously getting through the tesing

  71. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    At least it wasn’t a soft grounder

  72. blake April 29th, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    They have to stop letting Bautista beat them. They rest of that lineup isn’t good enough to let him beat you.

  73. blake April 29th, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    same thing with Cabrera when they play Detroit.

  74. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Lucked the freak out.

  75. blake April 29th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Jeter is 0-2 but his fly ball rate is better which is all that matters right ;)

  76. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Geez. That stinks

  77. blake April 29th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Romero could have been killed there….scary

  78. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    if Romero doesn’t get that glove up it could have been a duplicate of Gil McDougald nailing Herb Score and essentially ending a probable Hall of Fame career back in the ’50s

  79. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Jeter is 0-2 but his fly ball rate is better which is all that matters right

    ————-

    :D

    Maybe he’ll hit a HR!

  80. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Jeets and arod overmatched in those abs

  81. blake April 29th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    you won’t see Alex swing through 3 pitches like that often…

  82. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    Crazy how bad A-Rod looks again.

  83. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    blake, don’t you know that a lineup with 9 Dave Kingman’s would score runs at a higher rate than players who actually know how to hit?

  84. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Bautista drinks ‘Booster Juice’, which is often advertised on the rotating sign behind home plate at the Rogers Center….

  85. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    They need Arod to heat up again. He looks really lost right now….

  86. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    No command.

  87. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    We will probably see a couple more of those from the Jays before Garcia is out of the game

  88. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Hold them to 5 runs. What a 5 starter should do

  89. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    This would have been a perfect spot for Noesi.

  90. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Pendleton should start stretching very soon

  91. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Garcia’s game logs last year show a bunch of quality starts with some games where he just gets hammered-tonight seems to be one of those games.

  92. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Garcia was way too slow there, he should of been out.

  93. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    This is gonna be a long game.

  94. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    It’s 3-1.

    He may give up a lot more this inning.

    But right now it’s only 3-1.

  95. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    They better walk him

  96. Triple Short of a Cycle April 29th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    WALK HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  97. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    I’d put Bautista on here, that’s what they used to do to Barry Bonds when he was hitting everything out of the park.

  98. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    Treating this dude like Bonds.

    Sad.

  99. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    Garcia has nothing

  100. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    Get the bullpen up.

  101. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    it was obvious Garcia had nothing in the 1st inning, it was just a matter of how he could work through the lineup and keep the game in range.

  102. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    “blake, don’t you know that a lineup with 9 Dave Kingman’s would score runs at a higher rate than players who actually know how to hit?”

    —————-

    A lineup of 9 Dave Kingman’s wouldn’t score a crapload of runs??

    The Yankees team OPS in 2010 was .786. The Yankees lead MLB in runs in 2010.

    Dave Kingman’s career OPS was .780.

  103. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Jays can break it open here and I almost wish they would bc this game is boring.

  104. Tyler April 29th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Huge batter here. If he gets Rivera and can give the Yanks 1 more inning, it will be a fairly good start. 5 innings 3 runs is decent from the 5th start spot… This is huge.

  105. 108 stitches April 29th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Not the sharp Freddy Garcia tonight. Pitch count getting high.

  106. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Garcia better keep the ball down or he will hit one out

  107. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Girardi pulled Garcia in his last start after about 90 pitches when he was dealing, he’s already at 81 in the 4th inning, he probably isn’t going much further tonight even if he gets out of this inning.

  108. Tyler April 29th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Come on, 1 more Freddy. Keep it close.

  109. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    When I hear the name Dave Kingman, I think of the time he sent a rat to a female reporter. What a j.o.

    http://www.nytimes.com/1986/06.....-3500.html

  110. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Dave Kingman’s 162 game average was 37 HR.

    Imagine if the Yankees hit 37 HR 1 through 9 in the lineup.

    That would be awesome!!

  111. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Bend but don’t break.

  112. jacksquat April 29th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Very nice last pitch.

  113. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Good job to keep it close.

  114. Tyler April 29th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Big pitch by Garcia… If he can get through 5 then it is a pretty productive start considering he didn’t have much tonight. He’s keeping the Yanks in this game which is all you can ask.

  115. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    ——————
    you can’t actually believe a team built like that would score runs in bunches, can you?

    Kingman’s career OBP was right around .300 and he struck out 300% more than he walked.

    Just another example of throwing a stat out there like it answers everything when the reality is it answers nothing.

  116. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    They should definitely have someone warming up during this inning and go batter to batter with Garcia in the 5th. Hopefully Girardi pulls him before he gets tattooed and not after.

  117. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Awesome.

  118. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Cano don’t you know!

  119. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    that was a shot…

  120. syd_cash April 29th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Robbie goes BOOM!!!! (See homeruns aren’t bad)

  121. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    1 run game!

  122. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    “you can’t actually believe a team built like that would score runs in bunches, can you?”

    ————-

    You can’t actually believe that you need to score runs in bunches in order to score a lot of runs.

  123. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Go Cano. He swings and swings until he gets one to hit

  124. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Nice short outing for Dellin.

    3.1 innings 5 k’s 2 hits 58 pitches. 40 strikes. 0 walks.

  125. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Johns hits one out tonight

  126. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    A lineup of 9 Dave Kingman’s would SHATTER the single season team HR record.

    That lineup would be beastly.

  127. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    You could probably count on 2 hands how many fastballs Jones will get to hit this year

  128. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    9 Dave Kingman’s for a whole year.

    With Sterling.

  129. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Two hangin curveballs

    thanks for proving my point, that you guys that rely on stats and use random single stats to make points know nothing about baseball.

  131. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    “With Sterling.”

    It could prove fatal.

  132. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    Woulda liked to see them work Romero more that inning to drive that pitch count up. Need garcia to throw up a zero here.

  133. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    “thanks for proving my point, that you guys that rely on stats and use random single stats to make points know nothing about baseball.”

    Proving what point?

    The stupid contention that a lineup with 9 guys hitting 37 HR would not score a ton of runs?

    Do you really believe that?

  134. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    cool, Dice-K is done

  135. Tom in N.J. April 29th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    I’d rater a lineup of all Mickey Tettleton’s

  136. syd_cash April 29th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Yanks just need to score some runs, they’ll be fine tonight

  137. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    first of all, Kingman played 16 seasons and hit 442 HR’s, that’s a lot less than 37 per year.

    secondly, he struck out almost 1x a game and walked 1x every 3 games

    thirdly, his lifetime BA was .236, who is going to be on base for that 1.5 dingers per game that the whole lineup would average to score all these runs?

  138. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    I’d rather have a lineup of Rickey Hendersons. Much more fun, both on offense and defense. A 1Bman and a catcher doing a snatch catch.

  139. syd_cash April 29th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    If Garcia gets through this inning, not really a bad night all things considered

  140. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    “first of all, Kingman played 16 seasons and hit 442 HR’s, that’s a lot less than 37 per year.”

    ————

    His 162 game average was 37.

    If you have a lineup full of Kingman’s that means if one goes down with an injury you just plug another Dave Kingman in.

    Dave Kingman’s would be everywhere to take over for their wounded bretheren.

  141. BoJo April 29th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Garcia is pitching a real “professional” game tonight. Doesn’t have his “best stuff” but finds a way to battle and keep his team in the game. “Masterful” performance.

    :-)

  142. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    6th inning guy

  143. joeman April 29th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    notice that Martin will close his eyes on a batters swing, don’t see that very often

  144. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Good job by Garcia considering the stuff he had today. Robertson should start the 6th inning…

  145. Salliedogs7 April 29th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Not a bad job by Garcia all things considered.

  146. GreenBeret7 April 29th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    Other than he’s just a smart pitcher who had absolutely nothing tonight, I have no idea how Garcia got through 5 innings and only 3 runs.

  147. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    Fwiw, kingman struck out 200% more than he walked, not 300% more. He struck out 3 times more than he walked, but if we’re talking percentages, its 200%.

  148. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    MG,

    We could also just run a lineup full of Dave Kingman’s through a lineup analysis.

    And I just did.

    The results…….

  149. MG April 29th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    so the Kingman’s hit 2 HR a game, get only 6 other hits, walk 3X and K 9 times. That doesn’t add up to more than 4-5 runs a game, particularly since his career RISP was .240.

  150. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    Can’t be too upset with Garcia. He battled and kept them in the game. Up to the offense and pen now. Bats may have done too much last night. The dreaded double digit run hangover.

  151. BoJo April 29th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    Run G-man run!

  152. blake April 29th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    Garcia will battle you tooth and nail for the time he’s out there….he had nothing tonight and here the Yanks are still with a chance to win the game.

    I think a team of Tony Gwynn’s would score more runs than a team of Dave Kingmans’

  153. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    don’t dp

  154. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    I hope Gardner has a chance to run before Jeter hits the ball on the ground

  155. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    The Dave Kingman All Stars would score 5.450 runs per game.

    OR

    883 runs over the course of a season.

    BOOM!

  156. GreenBeret7 April 29th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    big deal. It was just an infield hit

  157. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    Great bunt.

  158. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Jeter looked like he had two painos on his back there. One piano couldn’t explain that gallop down the line.

  159. syd_cash April 29th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    nice play by Jeter

  160. BoJo April 29th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

  161. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

  162. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

  163. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Small ball makes sense with certain hitters.

  164. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    I don’t like Swish bunting here. Does he even know how to?

  165. syd_cash April 29th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Swish should not be bunting…Jeter knows how to bunt Swish does not….let me swing away and steal base

  166. blake April 29th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    ha! fly balls = 0 hits
    ground balls and bunts = 1 hit

  167. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    WCYF – there is a group of fans here who are enraged by the bunt there. Never bunt they say, ever.

  168. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    WTF is Swisher doing squaring up to bunt.

  171. jacksquat April 29th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    The Dave Kingman All-Stars would also commit the most errors in history and allow the most runs scored in history. And probably several other negative records.

  192. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    2 pathetic at bats. Your #3 and #4 hitters swinging at the 1st pitch is not what you want to see in that spot. The over anxious swinging has been on full display this last week or so.

  193. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    The Kingmans don’t even do something that terrible.

  194. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

  198. joeman April 29th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Gardner has to score (with his speed) on that fly ball…SS took 5 steps into the OF after catching ball & had to turn and throw which had to be a perfect throw…

  199. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    Once again, this over-payed team can not manufacture a run. Bases loaded with no outs. Same old movie.

  205. syd_cash April 29th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    That is pathetic that the “little guys” so to speak got on base and Tex and A-rod can’t get a hit or at least a fly ball to get one run in. What makes me even more upset is why did they both swing at the first pitch.

  206. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    The Dave Kingman All Stars would only ground into 108 double plays the entire season.

    That would have been 6th best in MLB last year.

    The Kingmans rule.

  207. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    You don’t want to walk Davis now he will steal 2nd base

  208. luis April 29th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    i’m not that sure. We should have scored in that inning and swinging at the first pitch is bad baseball. At least they should have worked the count to make sure romero is out by the six inning

  272. BoJo April 29th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    I believe Killer Carlisle is undefeated IIRC

  273. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    If we lose, this loss is on the players. Don’t anyone even bother trying to go at girardi again. The last two half innings were beyond awful.

    Yankee defense overall hasn’t been up to the par of 09 and 2010, is that coaching or simply execution?

    Have you ever watched this team before?

    I said it before and I’ll say it again. This team will have more come from behinds this year than John Holmes. The game is not over.

  279. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Bojo has a knack for working john holmes references in at the right time. I think I caught his first use of Holmes a few weeks ago.

  280. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Jones seems cooked. If he doesn’t see a fastball middle in, which he won’t he is an easy strike out.

  281. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    How absurd to accuse Bautista of doing steroids with zero proof. He has a great eye and hits mistakes, he doesn’t swing at garbage off the plate. He has walked 27 times this season.

  282. BoJo April 29th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Yankees will be in Jays bullpen soon….and then the fun begins

    Joba’s been ok
    D-Rob was off tonight, and has to watch out for those walks.
    Logan has been inconsistent.

    Millwood may be called up Sunday as long man/spot starter (if Garcia/Colon falters) if he accepts pen posting.

    This team is so mediocre and looks so old at times. Meanwhile, the Jays have great, young talent.

    Yet somehow it doesn’t translate to wins for Toronto, why? They have like 2 hitters with an OPS over .800. I guess their young pitching has the potential to be good but Toronto hasn’t kept starters healthy for the last 5 years.

  311. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    A-Rod. This doesn’t help.

  317. mykyl1 April 29th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    I am so looking foward to my next Yankee game. I can spend $1800.00 on 1 seat and have a whole row to myself. The place is so quiet I can take a nice nap and nothing exciting will happen so my blood pressure will stay nice and low.

    The Yankee organization, not the team is a total joke. Who drew up this business model? My 7 year old son can do a better job. Oh please play Day Yo on the organ while I am there. That two note song just whips the crowd into a total frenzy.

    So exciting. Yipeeee

    Can’t figure out who’s worse. Posada swisher jeter or Gardner.

  321. DaSaint007 April 29th, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    Let me preface my next statement by saying that I like Jeter.

    1. The other day when Jeter was thrown out at the plate by Adam Jones, while I accept that Jones has a good arm, it’s also clear to me that Jeter has lost more than just a step. The Jeter that most of us love would have easily scored 2 or 3 years ago.

    2. Jeter can’t seem to catch up to the fastball. Again, maybe its because of the weather this early in the season, and maybe it’s not, but it will be interesting to watch over the course of the year.

    Sometimes, as we get older, we feel we can still do what we recently did, but we just can’t. Take it from a former sprint/relay runner. I swear to you that I can still keep up with that younger relative at family gatherings…but then somehow that kid beats me by 2 strides…

  322. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    I think edwin jackson was just that bad.

    So the mediocre yankees somehow manage to be 6 games over .500, while the young and great blue jays are under .500, purely because the yankee opponents are just that bad? Doesn’t that include the blue jays, who will not win every game against the Yankees this year and infact have already lost 1?

  323. rr212 April 29th, 2011 at 9:56 pm

    Guys/gals, I wasn’t tryin to sell the Jays on anyone. I meant to point out that it would be nice to have some young, exciting players as well. That’s all. Not tryin to dis our team. Sometimes, they just look old.

  324. Triple Short of a Cycle April 29th, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    mykyl1,

    Their business model has been very successful both on and off the field. If you want a minor league atmosphere go root for the Brewers and enjoy the sausage race

  325. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    2. Jeter can’t seem to catch up to the fastball. Again, maybe its because of the weather this early in the season, and maybe it’s not, but it will be interesting to watch over the course of the year.

    Jeter won’t do it if he doesn’t change his approach. His unorthodox inside out swing isn’t going to be able to handle those balls he used to be able to wait so long on. He needs to move to a standard pull swing. Its a testament to his physical ability that he could hit for power as he did with the swing he had.

    He needs to go Biggio on it and start walking more and getting a pull power stroke.

  326. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 9:58 pm

  345. mykyl1 April 29th, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    LGY- Now I agree with you from a stock holder or owner point of view. There are plenty of companies who make a ton of money who I object to how they conduct business. The Yankees are one of them. They took the fun out of baseball for the players and fans. All for the mighty dollar. I have never heard in any book I have read about how much fun the players haev. The fans are not showing up in droves and the ones at the game are lame. Watch a Phillies game. The difference is ou believable

  346. blake April 29th, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    It’s hard to score runs when you are always getting yourself out swinging at pitches in the dirt. The Jays are pitching to Arod exactly how the W. Sox did. fastballs inside and off speed away. Everyone besides Cano and Martin have been absolutely awful recently.

    yeah, HR or zero

  388. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    I would love to see Cano bat 3rd

    I wanted to flip flop Cano and Tex this year. Which had nothing to do with Tex and everything to do with Cano.

    BABE GARDNER WITH A CHANCE TO TAKE THE LEAD HERE!

    Thank you and you’re welcome :-)

  391. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    If Gardner gets a pitch to hit I hope he is aggressive instead of being too patient

  395. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    Tampa losing.

    Would be a great game to come back and win.

  396. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    Gardner is coming back

  397. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    Jeter with the bases loaded feels like an unmitigated disaster

  398. Against All Odds April 29th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    C’mon Jete

  399. blake April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

  401. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    I saw Jeter’s grand slam live. Yes. the only one ever. He hit it just for me.

  402. Tom in N.J. April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    Let’s Go Jeter

    Clap, Clap, Clap, Clap, Clap!

  403. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    Jeter please hit the ball in the air. I think everyone knows what is going to happen here…

  404. Against All Odds April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    If he can put one in the seats the stadium would go crazy

  405. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

  407. jacksquat April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    A Jeterian hit would be nice right now.

  408. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    Jeter can cure a lot of his ills here

  409. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    Split the plate in half.

  410. Triple Short of a Cycle April 29th, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    This place is going to explode if Jeter makes out

  411. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    I would send the runners.

  412. Wang IS Taiwan April 29th, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    So rotten of YES to actually show Jete’s lone grand slam — like it’s still a possibility. And I love Jete.

  413. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 10:26 pm

    Against all odds – I assume by “the seats” u mean the seats behind the yankee dugout

  414. Ys Guy April 29th, 2011 at 10:26 pm

  416. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    Jeter is DONE

  417. Wang IS Taiwan April 29th, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    Better than a double play.

  418. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    The cap is done.

  419. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    Clutch Jeter there.. pfff!

  423. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    captain got overpowered; he even failed to hit a sac-fly?
    I don’t understand how people think he might hit a GS. geez, give me a break.

  426. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    It’s hard to believe that Jeter still bats lead off for the Yanks

  427. Chase April 29th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Jeter has the bat speed of a 36 year old man.

    Because that’s exactly what he is.

    Done.

  428. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Kaptain does not come thru in clutch …..

  429. Pat M. April 29th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    It’s starting to stink real bad here…..Can’t take it gotta go……

  430. NYY fan in NH April 29th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Not in the cards tonight folks

  431. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    I am not surprised at all, and glad he didn’t hit intodp

  432. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    Thinking back to that bases loaded and no one when we didn’t score. How does this Yankee team do that.

  433. egk April 29th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    It’s sad to see but Jeter is just embarrassing himself now.

  434. Ys Guy April 29th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    im amazed none of you red socks fan losers have contacted chad to have me removed for actually ROOTING FOR the yankees here.

  435. bruceb April 29th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    How many more chances can you give Jeter? He completely missed a meatball over the middle of the plate. Seriously, enough is enough.

  436. Against All Odds April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    kidding me

  437. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Need to start pinch hitting for Jetes in these late game situations

  438. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    1 pitch!

  439. DaSaint007 April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    As I said, it Jeter doesn’t seem to be able to catch up to that fastball anymore. They go right after him.

    I’d sit him for a day or two and let Nunez play.

    How can you have 2 innings with bases loaded and score 0 runs?

  440. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    How many guys left on base tonight? Pathetic…

  441. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    LOL

    this team is homerun or bust.
    btw, it’s hard NOT to score runs with base loaded and nobody out

  442. NYY fan in NH April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Swish… what the eff. Are you serious? First pitch swinging.

  443. Ys Guy April 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    damn, swish! oh well, got the big boys coming up in the 9th

    Let’s Go Yankees!!!!!

  444. BoJo April 29th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    They play 9 innings for a reason folks….

  445. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    This over anxious 1st pitch swinging absolutely has to stop. It’s beyond insane already. Maybe Long has to have a talk with these guys,

  446. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    Swisher n jeter battling it out to see who’s the worst. Just think we got 2 more yrs of jeters sub 300 obp n 0 slug %

  447. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Face it….Jeter could be hitting .150 come July, and he still will be batting first or second…..

  448. DaSaint007 April 29th, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    If Jeter were to retire after this season, do you let Nunez play or do you sign Reyes or Rollins?

  449. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    By the way, as regards to quieting a swing. Take a look at Bautista next time at the plate. There is nothing that is not moving.

  450. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Get the fk out of here with this team and their absurd ability to find their way to blank themselves in nearly any situation.

    I actually find it comical that Jeter berated the organization for 45 minutes before leaving the meeting about his contract.

    And by the way, swisher can stick his salute and all the other nonsense up his a$$. I’m so tired of watching him leave hoardes on base at the stadium close and late. Awful.

  451. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    The lineup is basically Cano, Martin and once in awhile someone else

  452. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    It’s a HR or nada offense. Imagine when they go thru a lil homer drought. Gonna be tough to get w’s

  453. LGY April 29th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Gardner has raised his OBP 50 points in 2 nights.

  454. West Coast Yankee Fan April 29th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Does anyone know the last time Jeter was pinch hit for? If there was a last time?

  455. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    I’m hoping they don’t pick up the team option on Hollywood Swisher….his performance the last 2 postseasons was enough to convince me to take a pass when his contract ends…

  456. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    It’s going to be painful to watch jeter the next 2 1/2 yrs

  457. CurtainRod April 29th, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    Swisher and Jeter need to be dropped to the bottom of the line up. Especially Swisher batting left handed. He’s 6 for 51. Grrrr…..Girardi

  458. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    Tampa just lost

  459. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Baltimore is winning :(

    And replace him with who?

  461. Ys Guy April 29th, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    face it jeter’s a hall of famer and you will never see another like him and you will tell your grandkids you saw him play

  462. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Swisher is playing like he did for the white sox. Now u know y Ozzie hates him

  463. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    $17m a year rules!

  464. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Jeter may need 2 1/2 years to get to 3,000

  465. mick April 29th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    And by the way, swisher can stick his salute and all the other nonsense up his a$$. I’m so tired of watching him leave hoardes on base at the stadium close and late.
    =============================================
    Totally unclutch.

  466. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    If they keep hitting jeter leadoff they care more about feelings than winning.

  467. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Swisher vs Min: .333 .385 .750 1.135

  468. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    I can definitely see Jeter retiring after this year and if not definitely after next year. At this point letting him bat lead off is hurting the team and selfish.

  469. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Swisher hit .300 with RISP last year :x

  470. 108 stitches April 29th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    There should be 2 signs in the Yankee clubhouse ……..

    - Singles win ballgames too

    - Timely hitting with runners on base

  471. mick April 29th, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    Alex has officially stopped hitting.

  472. Carlo April 29th, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    Egk – no need to feel bad. he’s the one who demanded the bigger contract and more years. Had he not done that, maybe I could have some sympathy. For a guy who built his career legacy on being a great player with a team first attitude, requiring a 4 year deal (3+ the option he will undoubtedly take) at the money he demanded certainly isn’t team first.

    Cashman would be a complete ahole and would be doing the entire fanbase a disservice if he did not go get jose reyes this winter.

  473. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    I hope they r making $ at the new stadium cos it looks terrible everyday on tv being empty

  474. mick April 29th, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Swisher hit .300 with RISP last year
    ========================
    prob. 150 when it counted

  475. YankeesNmore April 29th, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Great job by Captain Crap.

    Better job by the Yankees.

    Nothing like giving $51 million worth of charity to a guy who is not only completely done, but whom you can’t bench, move down in the order, or pinch-hit for under ANY circumstances.

    And you thought winning was job1 for the Yankees.

    Guess again.

  476. mick April 29th, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    Cashman would be a complete ahole and would be doing the entire fanbase a disservice if he did not go get jose reyes this winter.
    =======================
    Trade Jeter?

  477. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    We get it jerkface. Swisher was an all star last yr. He still doesn’t hit good pitching n disappears in post season

  478. YankeesNmore April 29th, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    Glad Paul O’Neill is doing the game tonight. At least somebody had the balls to point out that the strike 2 swing through for Derek Jeter was a straight fastball RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE.

    Not like you expect a major league hitter to catch up to one of those… I mean it WAS 91 mph.

    $51 million wasted.

  479. Ys Guy April 29th, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    runs win ballgames, they dont count any more or less on homeruns

    Let’s Go Yankees!!!!!

    Big Comeback win here!

    Yanks set new Stadium attendance low April, 28, 2011
    By Ian Begley/ESPN

    An announced crowd of 40,081 came to the Bronx on Thursday night to watch Yankees-White Sox, setting a new low for attendance at the new Yankee Stadium.

    The previous low was an announced crowd of 40,267 on April 5. Capacity at the new Stadium is a little over 52,000.

    Attendance at the Stadium has been down for most of the season.

  491. DocTodd April 29th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    Swisher hit .128 in the 2009 postseason, .176 in the 2010 postseason…I bet they can find someone better in FA market…

  492. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    it was actually high

  494. YankeesNmore April 29th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    The Yankees, thanks to their own incompetence/inability to make an emotional (but EASY) decision, DESPERATELY need Derek Jeter to suffer a serious injury.

    The day that happens is the day the Yankees are both off the hook and a significantly better team.

  495. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Rauch would have been a better signing than stiff soriano. Cheaper too

  496. mick April 29th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Not enough HR’s tonight—we lose.

  497. Carl April 29th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Swish just didn’t hit Texas pitching.

    A-Rod looks over matched on low 90′s fastballs. DL him.

  498. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    they are horrible right now.

  499. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

  500. YankeesNmore April 29th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    Can Captain Crap please bat again???

    I mean, we’re paying him $51 million! He MUST be good.

    I’m sure the Jays wouldn’t mind.

  501. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    ———————————————————————–
    There’s only one guy to “pick on.”

    Swisher was HUGE last night… He’ll blow hot and cold, just like most baseball players, but will do his share of damage…

    There is only one guy who hurts this team virtually every night, and it’s the guy who screwed up the inning BEFORE Swisher came to the plate with two outs.

  508. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Tough to score when 1-2 never get on. Shocking we scored 12 last night with a dif leadoff guy

  509. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    This looks like it’s going to be a 2-3 week slump for almost everyone. We have seen those before from this team.

  510. jacksquat April 29th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    When the top 1% keeps getting funneled money from the other 99%, eventually the other 99% get low on money and spend less of it on the stuff the top 1% are trying to sell.

  511. mick April 29th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    This team is not manufacturing runs.

  512. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    can’t you read

    Can you? He said strike 2. The 2nd strike was middle middle, and Paul Oneil called him oni t.

  513. Ace April 29th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Tough to take u serious Yankees n more when u hope for an injury to jeter. Get a life

  514. Triple Short of a Cycle April 29th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Ace,

    So its the legends seats that have you in a tizzy? Just because those seats are empty doesn’t mean those people aren’t in the park. Would you rather those seats be 50 bucks and have the Yankee payroll be 100 million. I could care less if people are in those seats or not as long as they win and spend on the team

    Btw, where are all those “intelligent” baseball fans who were defending the Jeter signing last winter???

    I seem to remember quite a backlash when I said Jeter was completely done.

    Can you? He said strike 2. The 2nd strike was middle middle, and Paul Oneil called him oni t.

    As it relates to the Yankees, my loyalty is to winning.

    Jeter does more damage to that cause than any player in the organization.

    Its a long season folks. Jete doesn’t look good at all right now, and with Gardy not getting on base more (other than the last couple days), it’s hard to generate runs. Both Gardy and Grandy have to get on base, steal bases to stay out of the double play and keep the infield moving. Maybe then we can get some holes created for some balls to leak through and score some other-than-home-run-runs.

    Gardner, Granderson, Martin, and when he gets on Jeter/Nunez have to at least try to steal each and every time on base. If Toronto can do it, certainly the Yankees can.

    You can not win by home run alone. Not for 162 games.

    Checkmate

    Cano is off to, at least, a 40 HR season.
    Yet he signifies the weakness in this team.
    They are not hitting.
    His avg is around 300 as is his OBP.
    It’s hit or miss with them.

    There should be 2 signs in the Yankee clubhouse ……..

    - Singles win ballgames too

    - Timely hitting with runners on base
    __________
    3– Avoid the clap

    At least they might hit 333 on the list

    Checkmate
    =========
    feel better?

  524. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    feel better?

    No, the yankees just lost. Though Cano is hitting .319

  525. mick April 29th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    ======================
    Try 308, checkmate.

  526. Jerkface April 29th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Try 308, checkmate.

    Reverse checkmate, look at the HR total, he came into today hitting .308, and then went 2 for 3 with 2 walks. He is now hitting .319

    Yeah, swisher was “HUGE” last night when the Yanks were up 10-3. Mr. Clutch. He’s in playoff form. No, he’s not the only one, but his showoff act when he gets meaningless, tack-on hits is wearing thin when he never produces in the clutch.

    Swisher got the first RBI of the game.

    If A-Rod wasn’t so old I wouldn’t be worried.
