    Yankees should finish this series with a sweep. The Grandy man constinues his on slaught against the lefites by going deep once again.

  2. blake June 1st, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Good lineup vs the Lefty.

  3. ac1 June 1st, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    surprised to see Martin day after night.

  4. Erin June 1st, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    Poor Chad-sounds like you had a fun morning. ;)

  5. Abe Peteraham June 1st, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    What’s up w these Wednesday afternoon getaway games?

  6. UnKnown June 1st, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Good point Erin on Gardner.

    Martin is basically a must with AJ on the mound. Once again he will have to play Goalie all afternoon.

  7. upstate kate June 1st, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    I like the early getaway games when they are out west.

    ********************
    wasn’t he pulled early from last night’s game so he’d be good to go today?

  9. Warning Track Power June 1st, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Chad has to realize the A’s stadium is very, very old. Nothing modern about the place.
    I’m surprised there is electricity at the stadium.

    I don’t, because I won’t get to see much of the game. :x

  11. ac1 June 1st, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Forgot that Martin has made AJ more comfortable.

  12. Joe from Long Island June 1st, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Erin – can’t you catch the Encore on YES tonight?

  13. Erin June 1st, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Joe from Long Island June 1st, 2011 at 1:17 pm
    Erin ? can?t you catch the Encore on YES tonight?

    ***********************
    Living in Illinois, no I cannot. LOL

    I’ll probably be able to catch the last couple of innings if I race home though.

  14. Warning Track Power June 1st, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Erin-The game might be delayed because rain is currently falling in the bay area.

  15. Shame Spencer June 1st, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    upstate kate – I like the early getaway days better when I feel like they’re getting away… It seems kinda odd to have the next day off just to play another 3 game set in Anaheim.

  16. Erin June 1st, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    WTP-coolness. :)

  17. Erin June 1st, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Ledger_Yankees Hughes threw sim inning today; live BP on Saturday in Anaheim. Rehab assignment after that, he hopes.

  18. Joe from Long Island June 1st, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Erin – well, that stinks.

  19. Shame Spencer June 1st, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Ohhh Erin, do you think a rain dance would work from the East Coast or Middle America?

  20. Nick in SF June 1st, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Sun is currently out over Marin County, which is only a few micro-climates away from the Coliseum.

  21. Joe from Long Island June 1st, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Erin – I meant about your not being able to watch the Encore, not Phil throwing a simulated inning……

  22. Warning Track Power June 1st, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Phil Hughes update was positive. I can get used to those.

  23. Erin June 1st, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Good question.

    Joe-I figured. ;)

    bad news for minor league fan tpayank(might have the name wrong)

  26. yankeefeminista June 1st, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Sounds like good news on the Hughes front. We in central NJ will be most happy to have Phil rehab in Trenton. :)

    I too will miss today’s game b/c of afternoon appt that I couldn’t get out of. :roll: Go Good AJ, Go Yanks!

    HE WAS PULLED IN THE 8TH. JOE SHOULD HAVE PULLED HIM EARLIER.

  28. stuart a June 1st, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    martin had 2 days off.

    jorge does not play against lefties period the end..

    andruw jones is the ultimate all or nothing batter. when he gets out it is fast and often ugly.

    river ave blues annalysis of the hillbilly (AJ) same as last year more or less. Counting on him is at your own peril……..

  29. Jacob Ruppert June 1st, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    Thanks to the one that linked to the Burnett, Nova article. Great read. Need a smile, read that article

  30. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West June 1st, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    It is absolutely pouring cats and dogs here in oakland..I havent seen this type of rain in june in the bay area in the 8 yrs i’ve lived here. Its thundering and lightening…..Its supposed to rain here all day….till about 6ish.

  31. upstate kate June 1st, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Erin & Shame
    looks like your rain dance worked!

  32. Shame Spencer June 1st, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    “Its supposed to rain here all day….till about 6ish.”

    Hey Erin, is this the part where we pat ourselves on the back?!

    Hey Michelle B! It was pouring in Marin about an hour ago and now it’s not raining at all, though it’s starting to look ominous again.

    I think they’ll make every effort to get this game in. Both teams are off tomorrow, so they could play it then if necessary, but the A’s would much rather leave for their rendezvous with the Red Sox in Boston on Friday.

    The Yanks have an off day at the end of their second trip west in September, but the A’s are hosting the Tigers that day.

  36. Irreverent Discourse June 1st, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    My how the mighy have fallen…

    Mariners released RHP Manny Delcarmen.
    Delcarmen signed a minor league contract with the Mariners in February. The 29-year-old right-hander was granted his release after posting a 5.14 ERA and 23/12 K/BB ratio over his first 28 innings with Triple-A Tacoma. Jun 1, 1:41 PM

    Thanks for the weather updates, folks!

    I always find it fascinating that weathermen and women tend to predict the wrong weather while the Yankees and whatever illuminati system they have can find windows of time when the rain will stop down the to minute to get a game in.

  38. Warning Track Power June 1st, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    I think the game will be played.
    Won’t be the best weather on June 1. The players might have to play through light showers or overcast skies.

  39. David in Cal June 1st, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    It’s not supposed to rain here in June, but it was cool and raining an hour ago across the Bay from Oakland. I expect the game to be played. I’m hoping it will get nicer this afternoon. That has been the pattern for the last few days.

  40. Irreverent Discourse June 1st, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Even if it gets delayed in spots they should get it in.

  41. MTU June 1st, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    YF-

    The Banster with another decent outing.

    Only 1 earned. Would like to see those BB totals drop and him last at least 6.

    Same for Betances. Need to get those walks down.

    I’m cautiously optimistic about Phil. Slow and steady is the way to go.

  42. blake June 1st, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    Realize that Martin maybe helps AJ but they probably should give him a break on being spiderman a turn through the rotation every now and then……let Cervelli get beat to death occasionally.

  43. Warning Track Power June 1st, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Blake-Here’s an idea? A.J. should stop throwing that knuckle curve in the dirt. I’m not a pro hitter, but even I can recognize the pitch and lay off that ball. Its not even close to the strike zone. I understand the need to “bounce” a pitch from time to time. The problem is A.J. does not too often.

  44. Bronx Jeers June 1st, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    I’m going to the game so you should expect rain or AJ meltdown and possibly both. :wink:

  45. butterball June 1st, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    “It is absolutely pouring cats and dogs here in oakland…”

    Geez….where are you? I’m up by the lake and we’re a little wet but nothing I’d call a storm. Stinking cold though, at least for June.

  46. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West June 1st, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    butterball, im down by the colliseum, in the ghetto….The rain has stopped now and it looks to be clearing, but it is bloody fricken cold out.

  47. Erin June 1st, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    Awesome! Have fun :)

    And no AJ meltdown, thank you very much.

    Article on Jeter in SF chronicle today.
    Might be a fun read for the fans that don’t live in the bay area

  49. blake June 1st, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    AJ’s hammer in the dirt is an awesome pitch with 2 strikes when he’s ahead in the count. Some of the reasons he’s a bear to catch make him a bear to hit as well…..just the way he is.

  50. MTU June 1st, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    Blake-

    There were a couple of games this season when I thought AJ was gonna toss a no-no.

    His stuff was that good and so was the command.

    It’s rare to see him with decent control but he’s fun to watch when he’s “on”.

    I’ll take the 2009 version of AJ.

  51. PacoDooley June 1st, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    Joe Girardi seems to have discovered that he has a bench in the last week!

  52. munson15 June 1st, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    WTP–nice article on Jeet. It’s good to read something about him, without the negative slant.

  53. butterball June 1st, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    Michelle B……..stay warm… :)

  54. Warning Track Power June 1st, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Paco-
    Before I saw the defensive changes Girardi made last night, I was thinking about those same moves myself. I wasn’t confident Girardi was going to make those changes, but I’m glad he did.
    Great to see Nunez get an at bat and see ARod get two innings off.
    Same goes for Cervelli playing. That move was made to rest Martin for a couple innings because he was going to play today.

  55. Erin June 1st, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    WTP-very nice article on Jeter, thanks for the link :)
