TV/Time: YES/1:08
Weather: Mostly Cloudy, 82 degrees
Umpires: Mike Everitt HP, Chris Guccione 1B, Cory Blaser SS, Mike Winters 3B

Power infield: The Yankees are starting the same infield as last night when all four hit homers, with Teixeira belting two. It was only the second time in franchise history that happened. The last time was 1939.

Brooms out? The Yankees will be in pursuit of their fifth series sweep of the season and first of at least three games at home.

He can hit, too: Brian Gordon began as a minor-league outfielder before switching to the mound for the 2007 season. He had a career .275 average with 219 doubles, 65 triples, 119 homers and 590 RBI in 1,206 games.

Update, 1:11: A catcher who can throw to second base. Francisco Cervelli has been struggling, but Russell Martin is back from his back injury and he just gunned down Elvis Andrus.

Update, 1:12: Gordon gets through his first inning in good shape, hit Andrus with a curve and that was it.

Update, 1:20: The Yankees ran themselves out of their first inning. Swisher singled and was out when he overslid third after Granderson’s single. Then Granderson got caught stealing.

Update, 1:25: Gordon’s Yankees debut will not be a no-hitter. Beltre lines a single to center with one out in the second.

Update, 1:28: Two hits but no runs in the Texas second.

Update, 1:37: Martin makes his presence felt again, two-out RBI single to center, 1-0.

Update, 1:46: Gordon has the Rangers off-balance so far. He got Ian Kinsler swinging at a 68 mph curve here in the third. It’s 1-0 heading for the last of the third.

Update, 1:59: First and second with no outs and second and third with one out and the Yankees don’t score.

Update, 2:09: The Rangers have two singles in the fourth, both on 69 mph curves. First and third, two outs.

Update, 2:11: Nice play by Teixeira on a grounder. Side retired. Gordon has given up no runs and four singles through four.

Update, 2:18: 1-0, end of four.

Update, 2:24: Suddenly, we’re tied. Walk, infield hit, RBI double by Ian Kinsler. So it’s second and third, no outs.

Update, 2:27: Bases loaded, one out for the very dangerous Michael Young.

Update, 2:30: 71 mph curve and Young pops it up to Cano. Two outs, Beltre up.

Update, 2:34: Beltre was down 0-2, fouled off two pitches, and then Gordon hit him with a 68 mph curve in the left elbow area to force in the go-ahead run.

Update, 2:35: Gordon gets out of the jam now, leaving the bases loaded after Mitch Moreland flies to center. So it’s 2-1 going to the last of the fifth.

Update, 2:44: 2-1 heading for the sixth. Hector Noesi is warming in the bullpen.

Update, 2:51: Gordon’s day is over after a one-out single. Noesi is on. Gordon walked off to a nice ovation. So far he’s charged with two runs and seven hits in 5 1-3. The Yankees couldn’t have asked for much more from a 32-year-old journeyman making his first major-league start.

Update, 2:56: Noesi gets a fly ball and a grounder. So we head for the last of the sixth.

Update, 3:04: Jorge Posada is about to become a pinch hitter on the coming road trip to the NL, so Girardi gave him a start at DH today against the lefty. Posada has shown signs of life right-handed after the 0-for-27 start and there was another one, a tying RBI double to the left-center gap.

Update, 3:13: The Rangers had first and second, no outs in the seventh. After Andrus led off with a double, Girardi wisely order an intentional walk for Josh Hamilton. Michael Young then rapped into a 5-5-3 double play. Two outs, man on second. Boone Logan is warming.

Update, 3:16: Beltre flies to deep left-center, inning over.

Update, 3:24: C.J. Wilson has been good, now 2-2 heading for the eighth after a 1-2-3 last of the seventh. David Robertson will take the ball now for the Yankees.

Update, 3:40: Wilson is at 122 pitches with two outs and one on in the last of the eighth.

Update, 3:45: Posada goes down looking, so it’s 2-2, top nine. Mariano is on to pitch. Brett Gardner will replace Jones in left.

Update, 3:52: 1-2-3 for Rivera on three infield outs. Darren Oliver will come for the Rangers.

Update, 3:56: Martin rips a single to left to open the home ninth.

Update, 3:58: Nunez bunts the runner over. A-Rod will pinch hit for Pena, but he will get an intentional pass.

Update, 4:03: Swisher walks to the load the bases. Granderson is up.

Update, 4:06: Granderson goes down swinging, two outs, Teixeira up.

Update, 4:07: Yankees miss out on a great opportunity, Teixeira bounces to short.

Update, 4:15: One-hit 10th against Rivera. Lefty Michael Kirkman is coming on for Texas.

Update, 4:23: Gardner lines a one-out single into right-center.

Update, 4:27: Beltre gets a glove on Posada’s liner, catches it and turns it into a double play. 2-2, 11th inning. Cory Wade is coming on to pitch for the Yankees.

Update, 4:34: 1-2-3 inning for Wade, who’s off to a good start in his first two games here, had a perfect inning last night, too.

Update, 4:36: Amazing, Rocky clips still playing on the videoboard to pump everyone up 35 years after the fact.

Update, 4:41: One-out walk to Nunez. A-Rod up.

Update, 4:42: Liner to short, two outs. Swisher steps in.

Update, 4:44: Pop to center. On to the 12th. Wade will remain in the game.

Update, 4:51: Impressive work by Wade, another 1-2-3 inning, capped with a swinging strikeout by Josh Hamilton. Kirkman will stay in.

Update, 4:54: Leadoff bloop single to right by Curtis Granderson, his third single.

Update, 4:59: Kirkman hits Cano with a 93 mph fastball, although Ron Washington is arguing.

Update, 5:02: Brett Gardner walk-off single, Yankees win, 3-2. They sweep the series.

    Flash AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  2. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Nice throw by Martin

  3. Tom in N.J. June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Nice Martin.

  4. Chip June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    I wish the Yanks could/would make a deal for Mike Morse of the Nats – he would be a terrific platoon partner for Gardner in LF. Though I imagine the Nats have little motivation to move a 29-year old hitting .300 with 12 hr and can play multiple positions while making no money.

  5. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    LolAndrus.

    That’s what you get for turning into the ball.

  6. El Duque June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Two up two down!

  7. justinxdance27 June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    and thats why we need martin behind the plate

  8. syd_cash June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    thank goodness that Martin is back…imagine what Cervelli would have done on that play

  9. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Yeah Gordon!!!

  10. ac1 June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    did i miss a discussion on why arod is out?
    he DH’d yesterday and out today.
    Is he ok?

  11. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Auspicious start! :)

  12. Carlos June 16th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    nice inning

  13. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Wow! A real catcher behind the plate.

    See Cashman, you want to play the “better players” to win games.

    “Is Montero better than Cervelli? Yes he is,” Cashman said.

  14. G-C June 16th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    That’s pretty filthy…

  15. El Duque June 16th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Nice Start!

  16. m June 16th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    repost:

  17. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Why do guys go after runners to tag them. Just put the glove at the bag. I mean sooner or later the runner has to get to the bag, right?

  18. El Duque June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    I hope Arod is OK! But you never know … to many drugs!

  19. Tom in N.J. June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Adam LaRoche is out for the year, Morse is now the Nats everyday 1b’man.

  20. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Its nice to see our Yankees be the first to hit the other teams players for once.
    Just for that he earned himself immunity.

  21. luis June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    nice inning

  22. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Brian Gordon–if he stays healthy, he has a shot at the HOF…

  23. m June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Never mind. haha.

    Nice start. I think Gordon needs a nickname “The Rookie”

    Gordon said he relies on secondary pitches and location to keep batters off balance. Good plan against the Rangers.

  24. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    re-post

    yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm
    Nice throw; hopefully Martin doesn’t have to go into traction after it.

  25. hardwired7 June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    You don’t see Hamilton take a swing like that often.

    Or ever, really. Nice movement.

  26. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Lineup looks as bad as it did yesterday. Martin in for Arod basically makes it look a little worse.

    Must mean time for a 12 spot.

  27. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Please pound this douche

  28. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    ac1,
    He has like a .076 batting avg. vs. Wilson and there is no dh coming up for awhile.

  29. jacksquat June 16th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    A little wildness in the first inning helps keep the hitters from getting too comfortable.

    (and stealing signs and tipping location are part of the game)

  30. m June 16th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    As for the pitch location flap. Didn’t they accuse Alex of the same thing last season? And we joked about how it was okay when he was a Ranger?

  31. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    I love me some righty Swish.

  32. Chip June 16th, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    My guess is that Cashman is going to pay serious attention to Wilson’s start. After re-signing CC I think getting Wilson might be Cash’s biggest move.

  33. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Brian Gordon–if he stays healthy, he has a shot at the HOF…

    =======

    Only if hes traded to the sox.

  34. m June 16th, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Oh, the crowd mike is so loud. Really interfering with the broadcast.

  35. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Chip,
    Is he a free agent next year?

  36. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Dammit Swisher.

  37. Against All Odds June 16th, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    SMH

    #@t!

  39. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Can’t make the first out at 3rd

  40. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Can’t stand CJ either. Hope we pound him.

  41. Niblick June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    If only Swisher would use his brain.

  42. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Aw Swish! Dang.

  43. syd_cash June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    oh Swish…over slides the bag good job

  44. m June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    He had the base, just overslid it.

  45. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    The Yanks won’t sign Wilson.

    Too old and too douchey.

  46. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    How do you over slide the bag when it wasn’t even a good throw to 3rd base? What a moron…

  47. Benny Blanco June 16th, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    Swisher never amazes me..SMH!

  48. Against All Odds June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Wow just wow

  49. Niblick June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Great baserunning that inning.

  50. Tom in N.J. June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    2 outs on the bases…

  51. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Two outs on the bases.

    Jeeeez

  52. luis June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    What happened to Arod? day off or is he hurt?

  53. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Oh well. Balls hit hard, so I expect runs to come.

  54. Niblick June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    I guess they want to make it easy on Wilson.

  55. m June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Yeah, I don’t know why CJ comes off as a douche. Seems like a nice enough guy. I think it’s when he opens his mouth and words come out.

  56. El Duque June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    swisher swisher swisher ! you just cost tex an RBI

  57. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    luis: day off. No biggie.

  58. jacksquat June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm
    The Yanks won’t sign Wilson.

    Too old and too douchey.

    See Rafael Soriano.

  59. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    I have no problem with Swisher or Granderson being thrown out – they are being aggressive and that is a good thing. It takes a perfect throw and that won’t happen every time.

  60. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Swish has gotta have ice skates on the way he has been sliding around this year.

  61. pat June 16th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Everyone has their running shoes on today. Red Bull overdose?

  62. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    LGY,
    Hes 30 years old and has had 2 and a half solid years.

  63. Chip June 16th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Chip,
    Is he a free agent next year?

    ——————

    Yes, and much to LGY’s chagrin at 31, he’s not too old for Brian to make him a serious offer.

    WC: exactly. Swish beat the throw, but the hard running carried his slide off the bag. It happens. Not like he was beat by 10 feet. Grandy has the speed to go, so he went but got caught. People kill him and Gardner for not going enough, but then moan when they get caught.

  86. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Chip,
    We need the killer B’s to go deeper into games before promoting them. From what I hear, they have had control problems and high pitch counts.

  87. El Duque June 16th, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    soriano has 19 Million a year contract till 2014! WOW! AJ is gone after 2013! I am not sure about the trade

  88. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    Speaking of pitch counts. Gordon seems very economical. Hes a strike throwing machine.

    Good point about Gardner. Unless it’s situation or skill inappropriate, aggressive baseball is always my preference.

  91. El Duque June 16th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Serious I would try to deal Cano! ( I know he is the best) but if we can get ( Lincecum or Cain or Baumgartner I would do it! than we can move Jeter to 2nd Base!

    is pena the bat boy too?

    Soriano may come back healthy and pitch really well the second half. The jury is still out on Soriano IMO.

  98. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    For as much as Jones looks like the Joker 24/7. They must have woke him up early for the gamecast pitcure. Very serious.

  99. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    El Duque: I think that’s a terrible idea. Who do you put at short to make up for Cano’s bat? Jeter’s never played second, you don’t know how he’d do there or if he’d even want to play there.
    Besides, SF doesn’t deal any of those guys. Big name deals are one thing. Fantasy baseball is another.

  100. El Duque June 16th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    Linecum gets to expensive maybe they would do it because they need some bats in there lineup!

  116. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    Wilson is lucky that the ump is calling that outside pitch a strike. He isn’t throwing that many strikes.

    It seems that Girardi wanted to work in Jorge since he will not be playing on the roadtrip much (except for the occasional pinch hit) due to the interleague play games coming up. The only guy he could sit, who made sense to sit, was Arod. Girardi said that he felt comfortable with Pena and Nunez taking the field for now at least.

  174. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Jones should of DHed and Gardner play LF. The only reason Posada is in the lineup is because he is Jorge Posada. Cash and Girardi have to grow some balls.

    Really? Posada has been sitting for the last two months vs lefties. He has been hot so they put him in. I dont think this instance is a matter of cash and girardi growing balls.

    Nice start by Gordon…too bad team couldn’t give him more run support.

  251. Ace June 16th, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    The AAA lineup is getting ridiculous.

  252. Meppie Amsterdam June 16th, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    I don’t think you could’ve asked for more from Gordon. 2 runs in 5+, that’s usually enough for a Yankee pitcher.

  253. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 2:55 pm

    gordon ran out of juice. russel martin as a exceptionaly defensive catcher. cervelli compared to him is like comparing a high school kid to a pro..

    as cashman stated today Montero is better then Cervelli now…………

    Gordon will get another start… once healthy maybe middle relief.

    walking teagarden on 5 pitches hurt…

  254. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    Gordon will be useful as a hitter in his next start. Nice plus to have.

  255. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    Nice job by Noesi considering he hasn’t pitched in 11 days.

  256. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    noesi 93 fastball all day long. he has a long term future. ok to use futre starters in the pen early in there career at the major league level. get there feet wet, learn about the league and go from there.

    BA with RISP killing the yanks today for a change….

  257. Meppie Amsterdam June 16th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Do you guys think that the upcoming interleague games had anything to do with signing Gordon, him being a former outfielder and decent hitter?

    Having one of your better pitching prospects go down with an injury batting or running the bases would be pretty terrible.

  258. Nick in SF June 16th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Great, the same people that wanted Noesi to start are the ones praising him now. :mad: #Imightbeconfusedaboutthedetails

  287. Melk Man June 16th, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    Yanks may need to think about re-signing Posada next year to be a DH/BUC/1B and bat off the bench. He looks like Ortiz last year – awful start and on the verge of released and turned around with a monster season that continued into this year as well

  288. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    If Noesi can get out of this next inning clean, he might just pick up a W once we get into the pen.

  289. Against All Odds June 16th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

  296. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    Wilson has been getting those pitches called strikes all day. The ump squeezing Noesi gave Andrus a double because he had to throw a ball over the plate. Stupid ump…

    Right now, Granderson may be the only hitter on the team that’s hotter than Posada.

    Pat M., what we’ve seen from Noesi since he’s been in NY is why I like him a little more than Nova. Nova’s going to be good, but, Noesi can get both ground outs and strikeouts. More than that, he doesn’t rattle.

  394. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    Ooh Oliver grooved that first pitch to Nick.

  395. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    Swish is getting pie.

  396. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Come on Swish! Good eye!

  397. Meppie Amsterdam June 16th, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Win expectancy before the bunt 72.8 %, after the bunt 71.2 %, after the walk 71.1 %. I don’t like it.

  398. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Don’t send Martin into an out at home Thompson. Let Grandy deliver if bases loaded one out

  399. willwill June 16th, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    MAYBE he will just walk in the run. yankee victory doing nothing

  400. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Has Grandy ever had a walkoff yet?

  401. Nick in SF June 16th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Now bring in the righty. :grin:

  402. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Oliver didn’t let him get pie.

    Grandy getting pie!!

  403. Yank1 June 16th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Hope they actually get a hit to win it… walkoff sac flys/RBI groundouts are so anti-climatic.

  404. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Man, that really turned out terrible Tank…

  405. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Yank1: I don’t care if it’s a HBP. A win is a win.

  406. syd_cash June 16th, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Granderson c’mon!!

  407. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    Zone one, Grandy! Keep a good eye!

  408. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    Walkoff Walk?

  409. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    this is so intense

  410. The Other Phil June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Aw Grandy…

  411. Jerkface June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    :c

  412. syd_cash June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    ahhh Grandy, know he’s mad for swinging at that one. Tex’s turn

  413. Nick in SF June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Ok, you can plunk Tex.

  414. m June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    GRRR

  415. PagsandRags June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    ugggggggggggggggg

  416. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    :mad:

  417. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Tex is due.

  418. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Terrible Grandy. Geez.

  419. ac1 June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    unreal…

  420. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Wow, that sucked.

  421. Ace June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Good thing they wasted an out with bunting

  422. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Ugh!

  423. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Ugh

  424. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Ugh that wasn’t fun

  425. Meppie Amsterdam June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Ah, that was the old curveballsliderslurve, thanks for clearing that up

  426. willwill June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    bonus cantos

    chokers

  427. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Fail.

  428. Niblick June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Absolutely pitiful performance by Grandy and Tex.

  429. rconn23 June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    They’ve just given away so many opportunities today. Unreal.

  430. PagsandRags June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    bases loaded one out and we can’t get the run in. unbelievable

  431. syd_cash June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    gah that was our best chance at winning the game… really thought Granderson would come through

  432. EA June 16th, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    Awful

  433. Derek June 16th, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    Wow I hate that so much!

  434. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    now Mo has to face Hamilton/Young/Beltre

  435. TheStraw June 16th, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    RISP Fail…

  436. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    Ace June 16th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Good thing they wasted an out with bunting

    *************

    That is not the case. You had Grandy with the bases loaded and one out – I will take that any time.

  437. Northy June 16th, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    This will be a very tough loss if it turns out that way…. Our bullpen in the 10th is mighty scary from a Yankee point of view

  438. Dill Pickler June 16th, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    God this team needs to learn how to simply put the ball in play with a runner on 3rd and less than two outs in close games. They gag and whiff over and over and over in that situation.

  439. Pat M. June 16th, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    3-1 pitch to Curtis was the one…There’s always 1 pitch per ab that you cab hammer….Give Oliver his due, bases juiced and the 2 top HR’Sguys in the league and he gets out of the jam….

  440. Chambliss June 16th, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    granderson misses a 3-1 meatball then strikes out on a pitch two feet outside. ugh

  441. Hassey June 16th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    this is why our offense can’t sustain long winning streaks

  442. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Never knew Ugh was such a popular word.

  443. Derek June 16th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Another inning for Mo? I don’t like that…

  444. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    That is the worst at bat we have seen Granderson have in a long time. He had 2 pitches to hit and the last pitch not even close to a strike. It stinks to not take advantage of situations like that.

  445. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    A tough three batters for Rivera

  446. Derek June 16th, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    Dill Pickler, I couldn’t agree more.

  447. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    The last time Mo pitched 2 innings he had arm soreness. I don’t like this move but Girardi is scared to go to the AAA guys. That is why he should of used Noesi for another inning.

  448. G-C June 16th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Mo’s throwing 93 right now, best velocity he’s had in a while.

    Odds are he feels great. Let him go.

  449. Pat M. June 16th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Hassey…comments like is why you give many of us headaches as you know not what you speak of………

  450. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    SCORE!!

  451. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Phew.

  452. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Ijust putting this out there. If the Yankees lose today. I can see some California Yankees doing the Vancouver thing today.

  453. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Nice from MO. Really nice outing after only pitching once in about 11 or 12 days.

  454. TheStraw June 16th, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Mo mows em down…..

  455. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Now let’s win this game!!!!

  456. rconn23 June 16th, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    A Cano bomb and let’s end this.

  457. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    With 15 pitches, doubtful that Rivera gets a sore arm out these 2 innings.

  458. Hassey June 16th, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    Patricia M. – B1ow me

  459. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Let’s win it now so we don’t have to see the AAA guys next…

    Ayala pitched 2 days in a row so he probably isn’t available.

  460. Pat M. June 16th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    Hassey…How many rbi’s for Granderson & Texeria have this season ???? It was a horse’s ass comment

  461. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    Cano be patient…

  462. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    Kirkman 6.91 era. I like how that sounds.

  463. G. Love June 16th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    YES shows Mike Maddux a disturbing amount of times during a game. I have a feeling the director of today’s broadcast has a secret crush on him.

    Thoughts?

  464. EA June 16th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    They cannot have Gordon/whomever and Garcia back to back. It will kill the pen. Slot one of them between CC and Burnett.

  465. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    Would it of killed Cano to actually take that pitch 3-1 and not siwng

  466. m June 16th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    AJ with long hair, Mo with no hair? Holy smokes.

  467. Jerkface June 16th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    Would it of killed Cano to actually take that pitch 3-1 and not siwng

    Yes. He would have literally died.

  468. Meppie Amsterdam June 16th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    Cano consecutively swinging at ball 4,5 and 6

  469. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Watch Brett show Joe up by winning the game with a walk off

  470. Tank June 16th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    We face Doug Davis, who sucks, tomorrow.

  471. Hassey June 16th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Good
    Great
    Bad
    Good
    Great
    Bad
    the numbers will be fantastic in the end, for Tex, for Grandy, for alot of guys, but this is why our offense can?t sustain long winning streaks

  472. Nick in SF June 16th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    I die a little bit inside every time I read “would of” on LoHud.

    There’s not much left. :cry:

  473. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    Now, 3 straight steals and we can go home.

  474. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    Now steal 2nd!

  475. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    No Gardner can’t hit lefties. Stop playing Jones over him please….

  476. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    (+) 14 (-) 9 = Awful

  477. BX33 June 16th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    Great. Now we have to watch Brett and his horrible reads and non-steal of Kirkman for the next few minutes unless Posada hits one in the seats.

  478. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    I think Gardner should have got himself in a pickle and stretch it to a double.

  479. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    Gardner should just stay at 1st base….I doubt he can read a lefty pitcher.

  480. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    No, Gardner hits LRP well, as per earlier stats.

  481. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    #$%%^!

  482. syd_cash June 16th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    damn. Now that is unlucky

  483. m June 16th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Frack.

  484. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    OUCH. Can’t hit that ball any harder than that.

  485. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Unreal.

  486. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Good reflexes by Beltre.

  487. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Ugh again.

  488. EA June 16th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Damn…

  489. Northy June 16th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Not our day I guess…. Damm

  490. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Talk to me people?

  491. ac1 June 16th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    posada could have used that pie.

  492. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Great the one pitch that Gardner runs on. Just his luck…Maybe if he went 20 minutes ago it would of been different.

  493. Jerkface June 16th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    Great the one pitch that Gardner runs on. Just his luck…Maybe if he went 20 minutes ago it would of been different.

    That would have been hard, since Posada swung at 2 out of the 3 pitches thrown to him.

  494. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    The Yankees bullpen is getting really thin now

  495. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    Got it.

  496. Pat M. June 16th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    Atom dp…Who takes the hill guys ???

  497. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    yech.

    the granderson swing at ball4 hurts.

    cannot by a break. if gardner ran earlier in the count, but gardner has no clue. worse basestealing flyer in baseball..

  498. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    This would of been a good inning for Logan against the lefties. But I can understand Girardi not trusting him.

  499. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    Prediction.
    Nooney gets a belated pie in the face.

  500. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    Can Marquez go multiple innings?

  501. Jerkface June 16th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Can Marquez go multiple innings?

    He is a starter , so yes.

  502. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    K-Wade. Nice.

  503. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Wade can go more than 1 inning.

  504. Nick in SF June 16th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Harkey looks relaxed, that’s a good sign.

  505. m June 16th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    damn…what a play

  506. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    Nice, Robbie!

  507. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    great play by Cano and strong inning for Wade. That may turn out to be a huge pick up

  508. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    Top of the Rangers order coming up.

    Need.to.score.

  509. rconn23 June 16th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    Great job by Wade.

  510. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    O.k. Yanks. Lets put the women and children to bed and go looking for supper.

  511. Northy June 16th, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    great pitching…. so far so good for Cashman

  512. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    So there’s the answer for the whiners about Jeter not traveling. The biggest reason is there are next to no facilities in Wrigley Field for it.

  513. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    ARod batting 9th lol

  514. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    Now that the inning is over. Who the hell is Wade? Did he change his name from Flores?

  515. Gary June 16th, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    Who is left in the pen?

  516. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    Alex has taken himself out of the lineup.

  517. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    Laura Posada says Alex has a stiff back.

  518. Gary June 16th, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Wow that was an ugly AB by Martain

  519. Jerkface June 16th, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Wade is a reliever that debuted with the dodgers, torre blew him out, had shoulder surgery, came back with the rays AAA team, was doing real good, and instead of adding him to the 40/promoting him the rays let the yankees poach him on an opt out/release

    He has a good curve and good control

  520. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    I know this isn’t politically correct, but I’ll take a walk off homer.

  521. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    Thanks jf. I now remember the Wade from the Rays. Cashman is doing a hell of a job plugging leaks.

  522. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    :lol:

    mikeaxisa
    Cory Wade already has more 1-2-3 innings than Rafael Soriano.
    2 minutes ago

  523. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    Nice ab Nuney.

  524. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    Speed on the basepaths. :)

  525. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    i think we’ll see Nunez try and steal here

  526. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Gameday shows Alex at bat. Is that the case?

  527. Hassey June 16th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    you should all get back to work

  528. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Enough with them catching these liners..

  529. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Good grief.

    BABIP Gods hate the Yankees today.

  530. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Nunez should steal here

  531. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    The Yanks have had no luck the last couple of innings

  532. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Ugh, stay away from that side of the field. :roll:

  533. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    how many line drives can we hit?

  534. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Now Nuney has gotta go for 2nd.

  535. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Nunez should go if he can get a good jump

  536. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    End it Swish!

  537. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    Is this where we all yell at Nunez for not stealing 2nd and call him a little leaguer?

  538. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    Ayala is most likely not available. So they are down to Logan and Marquez with the top of the order coming up. Not good….

  539. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    Cory Wade can go 2.

  540. rconn23 June 16th, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    Just awful. Just such an all or nothing offensive team.

    Going to be very hard to stop them from scoring this inning.

  541. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    Why wouldn’t Ayala be available?

  542. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Kirkman almost lowered his era by a whole run today and is still ridiculously high.

  543. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    This game is not Boone – proofed Joe. Cmon

  544. Nick in SF June 16th, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    Gordon + Wade = good roster poaching by Cashman.

  545. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Why wouldn’t Ayala be available?
    ——————

    He pitched the last 2 days so I would think Girardi would stay away from him today.

  546. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Nunez has picked up a bad habit of not getting in front of the ball, and playing it to the side. he didn’t do that last year.

  547. Meppie Amsterdam June 16th, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    Hamilton looks completely uninterested today

  548. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    Whoo!

  549. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    Cory friggin Wade!!

  550. willwill June 16th, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    thanks tampa

  551. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    Wow. we may have something with Noesi, Ayala, Wade, and Robertson

  552. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    GB, Nunez played that way in AA, but thought he was over it.

  553. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    D-Wade has been very impressive. Hopefully he can become the new 6th-7th inning guy. I know it’s early but he has good stuff.

  554. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    Flash and Wade in the same game. Sound familiar?

  555. Jerkface June 16th, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    Wade has 2 really good secondary pitches to go with a not-too-awful fastball. He could be a good guy for the 7th

  556. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    Fanboys on drays bay are cursing. :)

  557. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    The game needs to be ended right here

  558. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Let’s go Granderson!!!

  559. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    How hard does he throw? What are his sec. pitches?

  560. RS June 16th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Was just looking through the Rays bullpen stats and saw that Krazy Kyle has issued just 2 BB in 24.1 innings!

    How hard does he throw? What are his sec. pitches?

    high 80s, low 90s fastball
    GREAT low 70s curve thats like 2-7 movement wise
    Good change up at 82

  566. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    WOW that pitch was right there to hit

  570. EA June 16th, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    This guy with a 6+ ERA is the best the Rangers have outside of Oliver and Feliz? And they’ve used him for 3 innings

    You see that Joesph Girardi. Let the man hit lefties

  581. RS June 16th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    and cory wade with a much deserved win

  582. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

  585. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    AJ has the look; he’s stalking Gardy.

  586. RadioKev June 16th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Wait, that couldn’t have happened. Gardener? Against LHP?

  587. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    Nice at bat and hit through the infield. great pitching all around for both teams and so far the “scrap heap” pick-ups have looked damned good.

  588. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    So the moral of the story is Posada and Gardner hit lefties.

  589. UnKnown June 16th, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    AJ almost took a header trying to get out of the dugout there. Wow

  590. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    Yay Gardy! Will a game winning hit off a Lefty make Joe play him every day? Great win…..great series.

  591. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    I thought Texas’s offense is so much more superior than ours?

  592. Chris W June 16th, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    Weren’t some losers here saying that calling Brett a 4th OF was an insult to 4th Outfielders? Suck on this.

  593. rconn23 June 16th, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    He has terrible instincts on the basepaths and can’t bunt, but he’s the best defensive leftfielder in baseball, gets on base like crazy and is maybe the fastest guy in the league.

    Love Gardner.

  594. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa June 16th, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    aaaaaaaaaand Jones is rendered totally useless b/c gardner is capable against lefties

    gardner also would’ve had that hit by Kinsler earlier that scored a run

    great win, good job to pick up granderson from his 9th inning ab, he’s been picking up the Yankees all year so they owed him that

  595. igotid88 June 16th, 2011 at 5:07 pm

  598. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    No more platoons in LF.

    Wade looking like a nice pickup.

  600. Jason Voorhees June 16th, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    Granderson ended up scoring the winning run anyway.

  601. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    what is gardners BA against lefties. the andruw jones platoon should end soon.

    jones runs into a fastball on occassion and that is all he can do.

  602. ac1 June 16th, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    safe to say not that garder should not sit for andruw jones

  603. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa June 16th, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    this is why losing relievers to injuries hurts but it need to be devastating…. bullpens can be cobbled together, a good pickup here and there, add in Robertson and Mo and they can still get it done…. Cash needs to send Tampa a thank you letter for Wade

  604. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    wade was good with the dodgers before torre did his thing. torre used him a ton…….

    wade is at a minimum a credible option who may or may not contribute over time…..

  605. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    All the RISP fail was worth it to see some Cory Wade domination and a Gritner walkoff.

  608. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 5:12 pm

  611. Pat M. June 16th, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    stuart…..Cashamn is still going to get a veteran right handhitting power outfielder….Jones is toast, and I really thought he’d be a big help in 2011

  612. Niblick June 16th, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    So much for Binder Joe benching Gardner and playing that superstar Andruw.

    Once again, Binder Joe’s team wins depsite Binder Joe.

  613. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    Flash/Wade ends up victorious for a change.

  614. G-C June 16th, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    You know whats amazing?

    All of a sudden this is looking like a pretty deep bullpen with a lot of reasonable options.

    We only got 5 1/3 out of a starter today and still had Ayala and Logan out in the pen.

    Between Noesi, Wade, Ayala, and Logan, I imagine getting to Robertson may not be as difficult as it seemed before Joba’s injury.

  615. Chris W June 16th, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    “So much for Binder Joe benching Gardner and playing that superstar Andruw.

    Once again, Binder Joe’s team wins depsite Binder Joe”

    Give it a rest. Any manager in baseball would have started Jones. He’s still got pop in his bat, and they have to give him ABs if they want to keep him on the roster.

  616. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    Pat,
    I can see them calling a taxi for Jones and wishing him well. How much more do they need to see? No defense and a K king at the plate.

  617. Captain Clutch June 16th, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    From now on if Jones has to play he is the DH. If the DH spot isn’t open then he doesn’t play. You don’t sit someone to play a lesser offensive and defensive player. They lose too much on defense with Gardner not playing. I hope we don’t see Gardner sitting tomorrow with a lefty on the mound.

  618. Chris W June 16th, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    So, do we want Brian Gordon to get another start? I’d still rather see Phelps or Warren get a chance.

  619. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Chris,
    I dont think pitched that bad. Plus he brings a bat to the lineup for the n.l. games. You have to give him start #2.

  620. RadioKev June 16th, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Chris W June 16th, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    These are spot starts here. No need to bring the kids up for a stint when you’ve got Gordon at your disposable. He’s plug and play. They’re still working on it in the minors.

  621. -Matt- June 16th, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    Granderson is .005 from leading the team in average

  622. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 5:20 pm

  623. willwill June 16th, 2011 at 5:20 pm

  624. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    I like Noesi a whole bunch.

  625. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    Gordon def deserves another shot. Texas is a real tough lineup. No reason to risk one of the kids swinging the bat and Noesi is too far removed from his last long outing.

    I just realized we won’t see Colon hit :( That would have been entertaining.

  626. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    Pat M., who’s your right handed bat? Francoeur? Crisp?

  627. RS June 16th, 2011 at 5:25 pm

    Gardner’s average is up to .286! Remember, he was hovering around the Mendoza line at the end of April

    Also, Noesi, Ayala, Robertson, Wade, and Rivera have a combined ERA of about 1.50…we might just have ourselves a good bullpen

  628. Yankee Trader June 16th, 2011 at 5:25 pm

    Pat M.

    When the Yankees dump Jones, will that power hitting right-handed OF’er be Michael Cuddyer or Hunter Pence, whose Astro team is almost 20 games under .500?

    Didn’t see the game, only the stats. How were Gordon and Noesi?

  630. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    Gordon didn’t look half bad…average stuff but a lot of quality strikes with various pitches. Cashman has been money on guys like this over the years.

    “I just realized we won’t see Colon hit”

    there’s a very slim chance he could be back in time for the Mets series, which will be exactly 3 weeks since he hit the DL

  633. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    Swisher is your power hitting RH OF ;)

  634. GreenBeret7 June 16th, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    Gordon pitched a like what you see if Garcia was pitching, with an extra mile or 2 on the fastball.

  635. RS June 16th, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    “I’m not sure we’ve had a bad bullpen this season, at any point. In fact I’d dare say it’s been good all season.”

    It has been consistently great, which is crazy considering we lost our main lefty, then our set-up man, and then our 7th inning guy. But each time a man went down the bullpen never missed a beat.

  636. West Coast Yankee Fan June 16th, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    Gardner is a big league ballplayer who obviously has skills. He is not who I would choose to play left-field for the Yankees for the long term.

  637. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    They’ll dump Jones when Chavez comes back Id say…he has no bat speed left.

  638. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    Make Nunez your RH OF bat.

  639. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    Pretty awesome that they were able to turn out a 6-4 homestand after the Red Sox debacle……aside from that series the Yankees have played very good baseball over the last 2-3 weeks…..in spite of a lot of injuires. This is a good team that could be a great team with better health and a couple of key aquistions.

    Cashman turns $hit into sugar. His pitching scouts need raises.

    Swisher is actually doing quite swisher-esque since around middle of may and .293 .434 .610 1.044 in June. If he comes around combined with Cano/Tex/A-rod/Gardner/Granderson/Posada/Martin + possible montero infusion at some point

    Good things

  649. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 5:37 pm

    hunter pence would be very expensive. good player better then nicky but pass….

    gordon should get another start, minor league #’s off the wall and let it play out. if or when he faulters make the change. phelps is young and still developing so no rush..

    glad cashman commented on Montero today. the guy is hitting 300 in AAA and is probably bored to death and 21….he is a hitting savant…..

  653. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    all the yankee issues, such as BA with RISP, injuries, fading jeter and jorge and 1 game out.

    paying big dollars for pen help in most cases is not provide a good ROI, cashman is doing it correctly. If Noesi keeps it up he will be in the pen all year and Girardi will have to tak ethe reins off him.

  654. RadioKev June 16th, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    This team really is set up nicely. A lot of players should return soon, Soriano, Hughes, Chavez, Colon, that will inject more competition into the team and hopefully even better results.

    As long as Girardi + Cashman holds every player accountable for a certain level of production in order to play, then we should be fine.

  655. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    Bojo,

    I think ideally they need a LH starter and another Lefty for the pen……and another bat would be nice though how badly they need that remains to be seen……and obviously they need to get healthy.

    I don’t think their starting pitching is good enough to win it all is it is currently……Hughes coming back strong could change that I guess without a trade.

  656. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Face,
    When do you see them calling up Jesus?

    Also, what do you and others think about Bedard on the trade deadline? I know he has a bad attitude and injury prone. But it seems like hes back to his past dominant self. Thoughts?

  657. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    Blake–thankfully we have about 6 weeks to let them get healthy before we have to decide what we need in a trade.

  658. blake June 16th, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    Cashman is going to get a lot of calls about Nunez at the deadline.

  659. EA June 16th, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    When they are not playing the Red Sox, this team is pretty damn good.

  660. bruceb June 16th, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    The words Colon and “slim” chance should never be used in the same sentence! Going 6-4 on the home stand after being swept by the Sux is pretty damn good.

  661. BoJo June 16th, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    Other than perhaps a Beltran or Choo, and maybe a LOOGY, I don’t see the need for much–if anything. This team will make the paly-offs as is IMO…And I’ll put CC/Colon/Hughes up against others when this offense is on all cylinders.

    Indeed. We’re seeing why he wouldn’t budge with Seattle, you can’t just toss in a solid prospect after a deal is agreed upon.

    Not sure if we’d find a trade match, though.

  667. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    I remember Romero’s name coming up this offseason.

    Why was he released?

  670. RS June 16th, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    What’s Bedard’s contract? He’s intriguing as a rental, but I don’t think I’d want to commit him to the rotation beyond this year.

    Regardless, the M’s are in a division race so I don’t see them dealing any of their pitchers. Also, they ask too much from us. Remember when they wanted AJax for Washburn?

  671. Wave Your Hat June 16th, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    Gordon pitched well today and I am glad for the Yanks and for him. However, I still don’t believe passing over Phelps, Mitchell and Warren was a good long-term organizational decision.

    If Nunez can cut down on his errors, he’s an average major league shortstop at worst, with potential to be above average. The shortstop position is so weak around baseball that you almost have to view him as an Austin Romine type as far as overall value.

    gordon is a short term solution with no long term impact on the organization.

    if he fails bye bye gordon. if he succeeds pitch him, the guy is 32. a version of aaron small would do…

    warren, phelps, the b’s they are a whole different issue…….

  677. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    RS,
    I believe he is a free agent after this year and signed a cheap contract with the mariners this season. Not sure what they would ask for. And im sure they wouldnt let him go if they are still contending in a couple weeks. We guess we didnt help the cause by sweeping Texas.

  678. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Romero is still owed over 900K.

    It will be interesting to see if the Yanks put a claim on him.

  679. stuart a June 16th, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    nunez has value. the guy is 24, with about 40 big league games. his tools are at least major league avg or better. doubt the yanks will move him. the yanks shortstop is 37, injured and fading fast….not sure what the rationale would be to trade nunez. he has more upside then Pena …

  680. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    Alexi made a ton of errors when he first came up….so did Andrus. That’s not uncommon…..Nunez is.more talented than a lot of starting SSs in baseball…..doesn’t mean he’ll be great or anything but he’s got a good skill set. Lot of teams would like to have him id imagine.

  681. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    I would not trade Nooney. We have an aging shortstop and third baseman. We do not have a crystal ball and know for sure that they will stay healthy from hear on out. Hes the best insurance we have at this time.

  682. Wave Your Hat June 16th, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    “gordon is a short term solution with no long term impact on the organization.”

    You missed my point. The long-term hit is on the morale of Mitchell, Phelps and Warren and in the long run the Yank minor league system as a whole.

  683. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    Romero,
    Has 12 bb 10 k’s in 16 innings pitched. Logan has better numbers and hes facing better hitters.

  684. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    Id trade Nunez…..but only for the right deal. He’s got a lot of value both trade and to the Yankees so the return would have to be significant……

  685. Warning Track Power June 16th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    What an exciting game today(only because Yankees won).

    Gardner came through when some other hitters could not.

    Great job by the unknown starter and the rest of the pen today.
    Mo going two innings was really an easy decision.

  686. m June 16th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    What a game. Would have been nice to win on a run walked in in the whatever inning that was. But the walkoff was sweet.

    Good pitching all around.

  687. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    SOS

    Just focus on the lefty splits

  688. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Wave,
    I really don’t think it’ll affect those guys all that much…..

  689. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    The Yanks have already wasted over 8 million on LOOGYs this season.

    What’s another mill? Send the Phils over a draft pick while we’re at it.

    /Levine’d

    “What’s Bedard’s contract? He’s intriguing as a rental, but I don’t think I’d want to commit him to the rotation beyond this year.”
    ==========================

    From Cots…
    1 year/$1M (2011)
    re-signed by Seattle as a free agent 12/4/10 (non-guaranteed)
    $6.35M in performance bonuses

    Funny you should ask about Bedard…
    Just this morning I posted the following on an Angels site in response to complaints re: their offense…

    Well, if it’s any consolation, Erik’s been pretty stingy in the earned run department lately. In his last 9 starts, he’s pitched 58.1 innings, gone 4-0 with a 1.70ERA and 53 strikeouts. Think the Yanks might be calling?

    ;)

  691. CompassRosy June 16th, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    oh, by the way…

    thank the Yanks for helping the M’s get to .5 back!

  692. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    All Yankee minor leaguers should expect the worst and hope for the best. Not many make it to the bigs as a Yankee. You would think they all know that they are more of a trade bait than future Yanks. Its not like theyr playing for the Pirates, Rays or Royals. Im a huge Yankee fan and if i wanted to play for the Yankees, I would have to be drafted by another team. Tear it up for awhile and get either traded there or wait for free agency.

  693. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    Wonder if the Marlins will try to move Hanley soon…..he starts making 15 million next year. They have Stanton now as another draw for the new stadium…..

  694. Wave Your Hat June 16th, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    “Wave,
    I really don’t think it’ll affect those guys all that much…..”

    If it were me it would affect me a lot. Maybe Mitchell, Phelps and Warren are made of sterner stuff. However, my experience of human nature makes me wonder.

  695. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Compass,

    The Ms have shocked me this year……Ill be cheering for my boy D Ackley.

  696. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Hanley in RF :)

  697. Bronx Jeers June 16th, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Hughes-less Yankees own the Lee-less Rangers.

  698. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    LGY,

    That’s where Id put him…..

  699. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Im sure Jeter would be more than happy to give him his position and move to right.

  700. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Gardner-Grandy-Swish would be sweet.

    I hope the Marlins put Anibal on the market.

  701. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    Whoa. Meant Gardner-Grandy-Hanley obviously.

  702. RS June 16th, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Mo, Robertson, Ayala, Noesi, and Wade have combined for a 1.42 ERA in 95 innings. Not bad :)

  703. willwill June 16th, 2011 at 6:32 pm

    nunez has a choppy swing, reminds me of soriano, they can hit the ball anywhere, maybe there’s another arod we can trade him for

  704. CompassRosy June 16th, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    “Ill be cheering for my boy D Ackley.”
    =====================

    Cool.
    Are you from North Carolina?

    Dustin was hitting 303/.421/.487/.908 at AAA Tacoma this year, it will be interesting to see how that translates to the big leagues.

    I’ll be at Safeco Field for all three Phillies games this weekend…
    tomorrow should be especially exciting – Pineda vs. Oswalt and Ackley’s debut

  705. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Nunez is the kind of cheap ready to play SS the Marlins would probably like in return if thy did decide to deal Hanley….it would take more than that obviously but just sayin….

  706. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    Compass,

    Yea….he’s a fellow Heel……he can rake.

  707. Tom in N.J. June 16th, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    It would cost a to to get HanRam.

  708. CompassRosy June 16th, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    “he can rake.”
    =========

    Here’s hoping!

  709. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:43 pm

    Tom,

    Yea it would…..I wasn’t suggesting they could be him for Nunez for the record.

  710. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    Nah, they’d want Iglesias.

  711. Rich in NJ June 16th, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    Gardner. Every. Day.

  712. blake June 16th, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    Yes…..Gardner every day. If they must play Andrew some then let him DH against occasional lefties until they finally call up Montero.

  713. benfica356 June 16th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    no one is here?

  714. SoS June 16th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    The Yankees sweep has left this blog speechless.

  715. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Watching Rays-RS. But Price is getting squeezed.

  716. Bronx Jeers June 16th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Whoever paid 56 cents for my tickets today certainly got their money’s worth. :smile:

  717. yankeefeminista June 16th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Jeers, I didn’t even bother to sell my tix for Wed.’s game (went to see Betances). The market is pitiful.

    Time for Rays to call up Desmond Jennings.

  718. Triple Short of a Cycle June 16th, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Will the Sox ever lose another series?

  719. Joe from Long Island June 16th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    So, what’s with David Price? I thought he was supposed to be the greatest young pitcher. Maybe not as great as Andrew Miller, but still…..

  720. LGY June 16th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    mikeaxisa Of the Yankees last 13 losses, six are to the Red Sox and six others were by one run.

  721. Triple Short of a Cycle June 16th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    He will be fine as soon as the Sox leave town

  722. RadioKev June 16th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Yet again, so many Yankees fans seem so ungrateful. I’m sick of this Warren/Phelps over Gordon junk.

    It’s absolutely not hindering their development that they’re not making the spot starts.

    It’s not insulting either. If Warren or Phelps are insulted, then they should pitch better than Gordon. He’s Out pitched them this season.

  723. luis June 16th, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    Hi everyone,

    Great game, unfortunately had to work and couldn’t watch it completely, nice debut from gordon great to win the walk off way

  724. kobe 8 shoes August 22nd, 2014 at 7:43 am

    What I have discovered about the Casts is that there are mysteries within the novels that I think are planned out as if they know the exact direction they want to take the series, and then there are the before mentioned story elements that we never find out the conclusion such as the Crip/Blood boys and while I at it, I still wondering about Zoey sister and her hinted at in the first book younger brother..
