TIME/TV: 7:07 p.m., MY9 and MLB Network

WEATHER: Another nice day in Toronto. A little hot if anything. Roof open again.

UMPIRES: HP Greg Gibson, 1B Todd Tichenor, 2B Gerry Davis, 3B Angel Hernandez

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE: The Yankees allowed 20 hits last night, but the Elias Sports Bureau says it was the first time the franchise gave up 20 or more hits without surrendering a home run in a game of nine innings or fewer in exactly 77 years. Last time it happened was July 14, 1934 against Detroit. So, no home runs. That’s a plus.

ON THE SAME SIDE: Also according to Elias, Thursday’s game was the 1,660th time that Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada played together in a regular-season game for the Yankees. They’ve moved past Lou Gehrig and Tony Lazzeri (1,659 games) for the most games played together by any pair of teammates in Yankees history. The only other current big league teammates to play 1,000 or more games together as teammates are Jeter and Alex Rodriguez (1,050).

ON THE FLY: Last night, Brett Gardner got his fifth outfield assist of the season. He has 14 outfield assists as a left fielder the past two years, that’s the third-most among Major League left fielders in that span, one behind both Alex Gordon and Delmon Young.

UPDATE, 7:14 p.m.: As Robinson Cano was digging in for his first at-bat, Jose Molina picked up chalk from the batters box and threw it on his shoes. Cano stepped out and started laughing. Pretty good

UPDATE, 7:24 p.m.: Gardner threw to second on Escobar’s single, and that let Thames score without a play for a 1-0 Blue Jays lead.

UPDATE, 7:52 p.m.: Tied game after two. The Yankees got an RBI single by Nunez in the second inning, now they’re starting the third tied at 1.

UPDATE, 8:13 p.m.: That’s just a terrific play by Encarnacion. Wow.

UPDATE, 8:24 p.m.: Now Encarnacion has an RBI double to give the Jays a 2-1 lead in the fourth.

UPDATE, 8:28 p.m.: Two-out, RBI single by Jose Molina and now it’s 3-1 Jays at the end of four.

UPDATE, 8:45 p.m.: For Garcia, things have started to unravel since the middle of the fourth inning. He allowed the two runs in the fourth, and now he’s loaded the bases with no outs in the fifth. Cory Wade is getting loose in the bullpen.

UPDATE, 8:47 p.m.: Garcia and Cano both threw their hands up in the air when the Yankees didn’t get the call at first base, but Teixeira didn’t react, which makes me think he wasn’t surprised by the call. A run scored, the Yankees didn’t get the double play, and it’s now 4-1 in the fifth.

UPDATE, 9:05 p.m.: Garcia is finished after five innings. He’s left the Yankees in a 6-1 hole. He threw 95 pitches, 56 for strikes.

UPDATE, 9:14 p.m.: Some guy ran onto the field, lost his shoes just a few feet into the outfield, then laid on the ground and put his hands behind his back as soon as he got to the wall. I’m sure that was worth it.

    Let’s go Yankees.

    LOL! I love Ozzie. You have got to see his interview today. Classic.

  2. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    Mell,

    Ortiz should get less games for charging the mound and throwing punches?

  3. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    I would like to see future Yankee David Price dominate the Red Socks.

  4. Bronx Jeers July 15th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    According to “those in the know” on this blog, he and one of Banuelos or Betances are being offered for Ubaldo Jimenez.

    Very nice cell phone haiku last night, Bronx Jeers, both in form and function.

    Good night everyone, go yankees

  9. joeman July 15th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    I won’t be negative but….Garcia

  10. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Come on Tex. Do something already

  11. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    amazing. just utterly amazing

  12. syd_cash July 15th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Tex is like ice, right now

  13. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    At least Teix hit it to left. :P

  14. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    I thought this was the month Tex gets hot?

  15. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    This is where small ball comes in. If they did a double steal, Jeter could have scored on the “sac fly”

  16. syd_cash July 15th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    fail

  17. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    “This is where small ball comes in. If they did a double steal, Jeter could have scored on the “sac fly””

    or Jeter could have gotten thrown out with 3 straight lefties hitting….Molina throws well.

  18. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    I guess Thames is the new Bautista

  19. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Blake,

    when you play aggressive it can go either way, but you put pressure on the defense. During the streak when Gardner was leading off, he managed to manufacture runs by stealing with Grandy & Teix behind him (batting lefty).

  20. stuart a July 15th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    another nice AB by tex. man he is cold for a change….

    his AB’s are bad….pop ups all over the place. he tries to hit a homer on every pitch..

  21. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    I f’n hate Toronto

  22. Yankee Trader July 15th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Bronx Jeers-

    No names just the post:

    I’m thinking along these same lines. The fact that these names are leaking means they are publicizing some names being discussed in order to bait other GM’s and get them to drive up the price on either side. Ubaldo is available but the Rox don’t want him at the current Yankee offer. Montero or Betances is available. But the Yankees don’t want to cave into the Rox demands for both. Both teams are inviting other GM’s into the game.

    I agree that Cash will steer them away from Banuelos but I won’t be surprised if both Montero + Betances go in this deal. It would be Montero + Betances + Noesi + Adams/Joseph.

    I don’t think the Rox will bite on Montero + Nova.

    They’re gonna want 2 A prospects for their cost-controlled ace.

    Cashman is smart to say all 3 are untouchable because he hopes the Rox would be thinking they’re getting a fair deal just to snag 1 “untouchable”.

    But the Rox aren’t naive. They won’t settle for just 1 A prospect.

    17 teams scouting Ubaldo?

    Lots of compelling offers out there.

    Cashman will be lucky to protect his choice between Betances and Banuelos.

    Consider Montero gone.

  23. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    I really hate the Blue Jays…..Yankees are asleep so far. Swisher looked like he thought that was the 3rd out.

  24. Nick in SF July 15th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    Just don’t give up 8 runs. :neutral:

  25. Bronx Jeers July 15th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    Thanks Nick. I’m all for fighting pettiness with poetry. :wink:

    ////

    “don’t think anybody did anything more than speculate and guess”

    This is what he’s asking Chad to look into?

    Years ago Pete wrote a good primer on trade rumors. I wish I could find it.

  26. syd_cash July 15th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    why do our defense go through these mental blanks…what the heck is Swisher doing he forgot someone was on base…and why did Gardy not throw home!!! Are we continuing from last night….sheesh

  27. RS July 15th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    Why did Gardner throw to second??

  28. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Yankee Trader,

    Where are you getting this information from? Rival GM’s have said it would take an insane package to move him

  29. JM July 15th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    I think the Yanks are still on the All-Star break.

  30. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    “when you play aggressive it can go either way,”

    yea but you don’t want to run yourself out of an inning with the heart of the lineup up. It would have been tough to steal 3rd off Morrow with LH hitters up and Molina having a clear shot to throw.

  31. RS July 15th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    Garcia will likely settle down but I have zero confidence in this offense. We’re going to see Tex, Cano, and Swisher swinging for the fences trying to replace ARod, even though ironically what we’re missing most is ARod’s ability to just get on base and continue rallies

  32. Nick in SF July 15th, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    fat pitchers are whack
    they take up a lot of space
    get me Ubaldo!

  33. jeter2711 July 15th, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    Swish was not going to throw him out and gardy would not have either but i think if he tries to catch that ball he makes the catch.But after the other night fiasco he kept going back when he could have just came in and caught it.Chalk up 0-2 to start the second half

  34. Yankee Trader July 15th, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Triple-

    That was not my post! I asked the poster the same question!!

  35. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Alex makes the offense go…..he always has….not saying they can’t win without him because they can….but his presence in the lineup is tough to replace whether he’s hitting or not.

  36. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Why did Gardner throw to second??

    Probably thought the run was scoring either way on the line drive and wanted to keep the runner out of scoring position

  37. RS July 15th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    I think the risk of a double steal is worth it. Worst case scenario you have a runner at second with 1 out, which takes away the chance of a DP.

  38. Brock July 15th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Yanks have been fortunate to get the production they have from Colon and Garcia. Just a matter of time before it ends. Perhaps that time has come. Only a fool would believe this team can go far with it’s current pitching staff.
    A move has to be made to fix it.

  39. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Ubaldo has had 1 half of a season that was dominant. I’ll pass. I think we have a pitcher that had one great first half as well

  40. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Andrew Miller is not having the greatest inning ever pitched.

  41. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    blake,

    I understand the reasoning behind the passive base running.

  42. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Brock,

    Bet you said the same thing after the first when Garcia faced Cinn right?

  43. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Ubaldo has had 1 half of a season that was dominant. I’ll pass. I think we have a pitcher that had one great first half as well

    He was above average the 3 seasons before

  44. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Here we go again

  45. RS July 15th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    The ball was hit hard enough that with Thames hesitating, they probably could have thrown him out at the plate. In fact, maybe they would have kept the brakes on him if they saw Gardner’s throw was going home.

  46. Triple Short of a Cycle July 15th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    You don’t trade the farm for an above average NL guy

  47. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Please don’t bunt with posada and martin on base

  48. jacksquat July 15th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    A lot of negativity for two pitchers with ERA’s in the low 3′s.

  49. jeter2711 July 15th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Hey i seen this rerun last inning

  50. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    “Ubaldo has had 1 half of a season that was dominant. I’ll pass. I think we have a pitcher that had one great first half as well”

    his 2009 was pretty good as well. 3 straight sub 4 era seasons and right at 200 innings.

  51. Nick in SF July 15th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    The fat Molina
    he frames pitches with true art
    Martin says: frame this!

  52. Salliedogs7 July 15th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    Yes Nunez.

  53. Nick in SF July 15th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Martin barrels in
    Escobar gets the message:
    hello, sign stealer

  54. RS July 15th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Good job. One thing about Nunez is you know he’s going to put the ball in play

  55. Yankee Trader July 15th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    OK Time to ban further Ubaldo Talk. :)

  56. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    Good job by Nunez to avoid the RISP fail :D

  57. JobaTipsHisCap July 15th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    That’s weak ab for jeter

  58. blake July 15th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Morrow’s slider is nasty

  59. 86w183 July 15th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Jimenez is very talented, but if the price is Montero and Nova I’m not interested.

    If the price is Noesi, Romine and Warren count me in.

    I think Nova is a guy who can be a really solid # 3 eating innings and winning 15-16 a year. He might not be that, but that’s what I see.

  60. Brock July 15th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    I have been saying it all year. That being said, I want no part of Ubaldo Jimenez. If they can’t get a premiere arm, just ride it out and try to get something done in the offseason.

  61. jeter2711 July 15th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    Jeter did not need a hit there since 3000 is over so back to normal jeter since he has no record to break

  62. Yankee Trader July 15th, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    Was there a shift on for Granderson?

  63. xcv July 15th, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    lucky to get that one run

  64. jacksquat July 15th, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    Betances may be Ubaldo so trading both Betances (or Banuelos) and Montero seems like a bit much.

  65. joeman July 15th, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    the good thing 48 pitches in 2 innings for Morrow…should get into pen a little early tonight

  66. West Coast Yankee Fan July 15th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    I remember in Spring Training there were those who said Nunez wouldn’t get enough at bats to justify him being with the club. Even when it was pointed out that Jeter and A-Rod were aging and between injuries and rest Nunez would play quite a bit, they tossed out some voodoo math projections and poo-pooed it. Another win for common sense.

  67. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    I remember in Spring Training there were those who said Nunez wouldn’t get enough at bats to justify him being with the club.

    These people also said that if Jeter or A-rod got injured that Nunez should be the first one called up, thus accomplishing the goal of getting him PAs. These same people argued that incase of injury, he should be playing regularly in scranton working on his game. Perhaps the errors would have been lessened, the bat hotter.

    You live in a fantasy world of your own creation.

  68. jacksquat July 15th, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    Good job by Cone pointing out that Garcia actually throws a forkball, not a splitter.

  69. Pat M. July 15th, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    WCYF….I think Chavez was expected to get a share of the ab’s for when Alex was pined….I still think Nunez’s ticket will be punched as an outfielder in the future……

  70. 86w183 July 15th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    WCYF —-

    And if he HAD gotten more playing time early perhaps Jeter and ARod don’t break down like they did.

    I think it was a big mistake not to get him significant playing time earlier in the year. He had 2 AB in the first 21 games. That was ridiculous.

  71. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    Agreed, That was a good look at his forkball grip.

    I think Nunez has a fairly good bat for a SS, but not so much as an OF. Possibly CF for a lesser team.

    Imagine if he had been in AAA working on his footwork and throwing! Its not like having him AAA means he cant play if A-rod/Jeter die.

  74. joeman July 15th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    is it possible Martin played a to much in the beginning of the year coming off a injury year, thus possible wearing him out…

    I guess when you can leave out the entire info, it is easier to look like you know something.

    The same people rightly pointed out that Nunez didn;t have a god enough glove to be the utility guy..which has proven to be correct. As Face says, perhaps Nunez would have played better defense iof he had the playing time to work on it.

  77. Yankee Trader July 15th, 2011 at 7:57 pm

  83. West Coast Yankee Fan July 15th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    A bag of salted peanuts and some bird seed for the first one to post proof that Jerk ever admitted he was wrong.

  84. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    I’m completely right in this case. Since had I been in charge, Nunez would have been honing his craft in the minors until opportunity for more play time presented itself, in which case we’d be in the same position we are now with Nunez on the team. Its hard to argue that Nunez playing sparingly for a month and a half (and with many errors) was very helpful.

    Seems like it.

    But it would definitely take at least one of Montero/Betances/Banuelos to get Ubaldo.

  90. West Coast Yankee Fan July 15th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    Bottom line – it was exactly the right move to choose Nunez over Pena then; and that has proven to be the right call. The won’t get enough at bats premise was nonsense and those of us with baseball common sense said just that.

    Not really, since he didn’t get enough work in the early going and when he finally got to play regularly, the opposing side would have had Nunez on the yankees at the time anyways. You’re basically an idiot.

  93. waka flocka July 15th, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    I would offer Hughes, Betances and Laird to Colorado for Jiminez. Colorado gets a good prospect, a young major league ready pitcher, and a fringe infield prospect.

    It was mentioned in the post that the rockies scouted yankees AA & AAA and liked Montero, betances & Banuelos.

    Don’t know how accurate all this info is or it’s rumors.

  95. RS July 15th, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    “Betances may be Ubaldo so trading both Betances (or Banuelos) and Montero seems like a bit much.”

    Forget Betances…Nova might become Ubaldo with his ground ball rates in Coors. Look at what Kennedy is doing with the Diamondbacks.

    And then on top of that, Montero would probably launch balls out of that stadium with ease…that trade would look horrible if Jimenez became a Greinke/Burnett type who can post stretches of dominance based on stuff alone, but can never become a consistent #2, which is what I’d suspect

    Bottom line – it was exactly the right move to choose Nunez over Pena then; and that has proven to be the right call. The won’t get enough at bats premise was nonsense and those of us with baseball common sense said just that.
    ____
    And you call JF names for never being able to admit he is wrong? Amazing. It was exactly the wrong move as shown by 11 errors and a few lost games )at least 1 to my memory) due to his errors. If he was needed to play, he could have been with team within a few hours.

  98. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    Before Jeter went down Nunez only started 13 of 64 games and hit .214 .254 .339 .594 while getting limited time at the plate or in the field (only 61 PA which is about the same pace everyone arguing for him to start in AAA said he would be on) and he made 8 errors in that same stretch.

    They could have had Pena and his superior glove in those first 2 months while Nunez continued to work on his footwork in AAA, he was a very good defender last year in the minors and when he came up because he had lots of time to work on it. Having him in AAA wouldn’t have impeded his ability to take over for Derek Jeter or A-rod if they went down with injury.

    “Someone saying that Ivan Nova may become Ubaldo Jiminez is probably the funniest thing I have read on here in a while.”

    Nova has a 4.19 ERA in the AL East, Jimenez has a 4.08 ERA in the NL West. Nova has probably been BETTER than Jimenez this year.

    And I’m not saying the two are equal pitchers, just that they might carry the same relative value for their teams since a lesser pitcher can do better in the NL than a better pitcher would do in NY. Like the way Ian Kennedy turned into the Diamondbacks ace when he would have only been a #4 or #5 here

    Jimenez is very much like A.J. Burnett in that he’s hit or miss. One day he’ll look like the best pitcher on the planet, the next he’ll look completely average, and the next he’ll look like he belongs in Triple-A. His average Game Score since the start of 2009 is 57.5 but the standard deviation is 15.9, which is kinda nuts. That means his Game Scores (and thus the quality of his outings) vary a great deal. Burnett is at 50.4 and 17.7 during that time, respectively.

    “i believe they were talking about betances”

    i know, and I’m saying that an even lesser pitcher than Betances would likely become the Rockies ace. People are talking about trading Hughes or Nova as secondary pieces, which I think is ridiculous when you stop and think about how those guys could end up faring in the NL. If the Rockies want a killer B, I’m not giving them a major-league proven pitcher on top of that.

    That’s true, but yet again, I don’t think his season last year is credible. He didn’t keep it up and slipped quite a bit in the second half.

    So for those following, Ubaldo, in his career year!, if here were a Yankee, he probably wouldn’t have helped us at all in the post season. Do not hold that up as the shining example of why we should be trading Montero or the Bs for this guy.

    Tex still looks awful I hope Long is working with him he needs help

  192. Yankee Trader July 15th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Blojo all you do is lie. You know darn well what you did, you called from a 7-Eleven from the 860 area code, I have the number and lots more.
    _____
    BTW–Before I mentioned that I don’t even have a phone with 203 area code, you used to claim the late phone calls came from 203 area code and you had the proof. Now you are changing the story to a 860 area code. You are so stupid that you can’t even lie effectively.

    And your behavior and lies towards others here totally show who lies constantly.

    You lose.

    Thanks for playing.

    Good night.

    Nah. At least Jorge can hit….

    The pitches that Cano and Tex swung at are shocking. Morrow has nasty stuff but those pitches never went anywhere near the strike zone

  198. blake July 15th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Get Beltran and Montero

    Who is playing the OF if Gardner is traded? Better get Beltran! Montero should be on this team.
    ——————————————–
    is it possible they don’t want to bring him up because if he plays bad while he’s here his value takes a big hit

  200. Captain Clutch July 15th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    The way that the Jays are treating the Yankees defense is very scary. It tells you that they have zero respect for the outfield arms and especially Martin’s throwing ability. Every team knows that he throws 90% of throws to 2nd base into CF. These 2 games have been terrible.

  201. West Coast Yankee Fan July 15th, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    Blojo you truly are a mental midget. You called from multiple pay phones and you know it. That’s what cowards like you do.

    Martin was great for a month and a half but he’s been horrible since than. He can’t hit anymore and now he can’t throw either. He’s turned in to Cervelli. The problem is he’s not much rest. They should have let Jorge catch once in a while from the beginning.
    ——————————————————————–
    he plays almost every game, from the start of the season …maybe he just needs a break

  207. kd July 15th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    a lefty starter, beltran, and montero would really help this team.

    a strong phil hughes, soriano, and a rested martin would really help as well

  208. West Coast Yankee Fan July 15th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    It is obvious I’m sure to Cashman and others in the organization that this team has needs to fill if they expect to win it all this year. That’s his job to get it done, I don’t care about excuses.

  209. RS July 15th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    I’m rooting for TB against Boston but if the Yankees don’t get their act together, the Rays are going to catch up to them in no time

  210. Yankee Trader July 15th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Blake-

    Right now a 3 team trade that nets the Yankees Justin Masterson and Brandon Morrow would certainly help.

    Too much infighting tonight.

    Until tomorrow.

  211. 108 stitches July 15th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Until Teixeira decides to start using the whole field instead of being so HR conscious, he’ll never measure up to be what Tino was.

  212. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Toronoto has played aggressive base running all year irregardless of what team they play. Their manager spoke about it in an interview. Since they loss some bats, they opted to play aggressive base running to manufacture runs.

  213. Benny Blanco July 15th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Molina 2-2?? I can’t take it….LOL You can’t predict this stuff.

  214. Captain Clutch July 15th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    The lineup has a giant hole without Arod. They don’t have anyone that scares you besides Cano when he is swinging right. They are getting little to nothing out of SS, C, 3rd and DH. Tex better wake up otherwise he is really going to start hearing it from the fans and media. He isn’t getting paid $180m to be a blend in player.

  215. jacksquat July 15th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Martin has thrown out 28%. I don’t know what league average is, but I think that’s close. That’s also near his career average of 31%.

  216. luis July 15th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

  218. Benny Blanco July 15th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    why go after beltran? as soon as he changes uniforms he will become a 220 hitter… I’m so tired of players disappearing as soon as they become a yankee.

  221. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    League average this year is 29% so he is below average

  222. Bo knows July 15th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    It’s shocking how much the absence of Alex resonates through this team.

  223. ET July 15th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Without A-Rod, they need good pitching to survive. The 09 team was sub .500 without him and they had a younger and better offense than this version does.

    This is the perfect storm – pitching starting to collapse just as their cleanup hitter is gone for 4-6 weeks.

  224. stuart a July 15th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    another nice effort. great ab’s by tex. when martin cannot field what can he do? he definitely cannot hit…..

    toronto has blown them away 2 nights in a row…

    terrible….

  225. LockDown July 15th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    We need to stay afloat until A-rod comes back. Hope he’s rejuvinated, feeling good & hitting like in April

  226. stuart a July 15th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    the great russel martin is hitting a cervelli like 219…

    the guy is hitting 219, jorge in the 230, tex is hitting 240 and swisher barely 250…

    OUCH

  227. jacksquat July 15th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 9:12 pm
    League average this year is 29% so he is below average

    A whole 1%. :D

    His defense is alright, but his bat has been absent.

  228. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    A whole 1%

    Well its gonna be a little worse after tonight, but he is also hitting .180 since forever ago and if he is only going to be around league average (and infact under it) then how much value does he bring? It certainly paints the yankees as needing Montero more than some think.

    Mell pointed out the yankees are also below average in passed balls and wild pitches. I think there is good evidence on a game by game basis of Martin blocking pitches in the dirt and he is probably framing em up good, but overall he isn’t making a strong enough impact.

  229. REZ12 July 15th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    If only there was a big bat in AAA who happened to be a catcher who could infuse the offense (or be traded for Jiminez)……

  230. syd_cash July 15th, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    @jacksquat is 28% his season average….because of the great start he got of too that would be decieving anyone watching the games lately knows that he has not been throwing out a lot of runners or playing as well defensively as earlier in the season

  231. Purenyyankee July 15th, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    Someone needs to explain to these clowns that the damn All-Star break is over. Stop sleep walking and wake-up and start playing baseball.

  232. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    Yankees lead the league in catcher errors and Martin has 7 of them.

  233. joeman July 15th, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    from 7/1 till the ASG they were only 5-4 so it wasn’t like they were playing all that great….

  234. Captain Clutch July 15th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Martin keep swinging for a homerun…What happened to this guy?!?!

  235. RS July 15th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    This team needs a .300 hitter badly. We used to have Jeter and ARod as locks to hit for a good average, along with guys like Matsui and Sheffield. Now we have Cano hovering around .290 and that’s it. Gardner is second on the team with a .270 BA (not counting ARod). That’s pathetic.

  236. Purenyyankee July 15th, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    Might as well let Meat Tray finish the game. Maybe his arm will fall off. That could be the only good to come out of this night.

  237. Captain Clutch July 15th, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    The Yanks have to get Romine to AAA. If Montero isn’t going to catch in the majors then they have to stop blocking Romine’s path to the majors. The only reason Romine is still in AA is because of Montero catching in AAA.

  238. jacksquat July 15th, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    At least Nunez can hit…

  239. RS July 15th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Now I’m glad Robertson got to pitch in the ASG. Otherwise he’d have had a full week off

  240. Nick in SF July 15th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Did Martin stop being in the Best Shape Of His Life at some point in May?

  241. REZ12 July 15th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    They need to go back to the Romine/Montero platoon like the good ol days.

    Or at least trade one of hem for a piece we can use now

    I wanted Montero instead of Cervelli at the beginning of the season… and Martin catching fewer games.

  247. RS July 15th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Montero should be called up now. They need to shake things up. He can catch CC and Colon, who are always around the strike zone and know how to hold runners. It’s only 2 weeks until the ASB. Him struggling in 10 big league games isn’t going to change any scout’s opinion of him.

  248. Hassey July 15th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    By the time A-Rod comes back, the Yankees are going to be so far out of first, it won’t matter. Girardi is going to have to raise the wild card flag again by first weekend in August.

    There, I said it

  249. blake July 15th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    Do you think the Rockies are serious about possibily moving him and if so….what would it cost?

  251. Bo knows July 15th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Yay, Jeter grounded out to 1B.

    A pleasant change compared to Martin who’s doing the Teix rollover lately.

    but is there a good enough SP available to trade their top prospects for?

    maybe they could package some mid level ppl for a second tier SP, kinda hope they do something

  285. RS July 15th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    CC is going to have to come up with another shutout tomorrow. Either that or the Yankees will put up 10 runs and then go back to sucking after that. Good thing is that with Romero pitching, Tex will be batting righty where he actually looks like a major leaguer.

  286. stuart a July 15th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    some of this is over analyzing things and the ups and downs of the season but really why is Mitre on the team????

    10 runs and back to sucking? The team is still 53-37.

    Of course, no one could have predicted he would revert into a post-steroid Giambi, but its funny to look back now. Sox got a monster franchise player for 2 mediocre prospects.

    oh look Martin got a insignificant hit….wow

  302. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 10:00 pm

    What do you guys propose the Yankees should have done at 1st base for the past 2 years including a WORLD SERIES WIN???

  303. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 10:00 pm

    Gonzalez, Fielder, Pujols. None of those guys were available post 2008 so what was the plan? Punt for 2 years just in case you can get one of those guys?

  304. cs in la July 15th, 2011 at 10:00 pm

    This is ok. As much as it would have been nice to win, this is ok.

    Why? I want to go into the trade deadline with all of our flaws exposed for Cash. If we were on a streak this week, everyone would say how amazing the team is and no fixes would be made.

    This way, we see the fixes that need to be addressed. How about that optimism?

  305. RS July 15th, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    Regarding Teixeira, at least we got one championship with him so far and he was the team MVP that season. Gonzo is having an MVP season for the Sox, but it’s all moot if they don’t win (as Sox fans so fondly reminded us about ARod for years). And at least the Sox have picked up 0 good pitching since then. They’re just as hungry for starters now as we are (and maybe even more so for relievers).

    These past two games have been just godawful. Don’t know if they have a hard time on turf or are just still hung over but their play and hitting has been putrid. Another game down the toilet along with a chance to catch up a game against the Sox.

  312. West Coast Yankee Fan July 15th, 2011 at 10:05 pm

  314. Tyler July 15th, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    Perfect guy to have on the mound tomorrow in Sabathia. If they take the next 2, then it is a fairly successful series. Playing in Toronto is always tough on them.

  315. sunny615 July 15th, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    Dunno what’s going on but Girardi better get this ship righted and quick.

  316. Yanks78 July 15th, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    I don’t think people are criticizing the signing of Tex– just what he has become since the signing.

  317. RS July 15th, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    “10 runs and back to sucking? The team is still 53-37.”

    I meant the offense. Look at the numbers…they score a boatload of runs in CC and Nova’s starts and are average to below average with the other starters on the mound. How many no decisions and losses have Colon, Garcia, and Burnett gotten giving up 3 runs or less?

  318. joeman July 15th, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    middle of july & they have 6 more W’s than the Blue Jays

    Exactly. If not for Tex, then you probably have a vaunted Josh Phelps/Andy Phillips platoon still. Tex has played gold glove d and won a championship in which he was a big part of… Maybe his average has been down recently but he’s been good. No guarantee at all that the Yanks get Gonzalez if Tex went to Boston. And if they did you could have kissed the Killer B’s and Montero goodbye because they weren’t getting the deal Boston got.

  322. LGY July 15th, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    they are up like 10 games though in the loss column i think… that’s the important column.

    And three fewer losses than the defending champions and one more loss than thebteam with the best record in the AL. Idiot.

  329. Jerkface July 15th, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    The yankees have won a bigger share of games played than the blue jays, you’re missing the point.

    If the yankees won 50 games in 60 tries and the blue jays won 50 games in 100 tries, they’d be tied in the W column, but it wouldn’t matter

  330. joeman July 15th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    Idiot. very nice enjoy yourself

  331. TheStraw July 15th, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    And by the way, the Jays finished with a decent record last year.

    That your comment about the wins column doesn’t make sense, because the yankees are double digits over .500 while the Jays just now reached .500.

    Toronto is 47 and 47
    Yankees are 53 and 37

    The Yankees would have to lose 10 games while the Jays go 6-0 with a bunch of days off just to have the same record. Its not remotely the same as ‘Only 6 more Ws than the blue jays’

    The Yankees have won a butt load more games than the Jays relative to the amount of games they have played!

    47 out of 94 games vs 53 out out of 90

    This is absolutely brilliant! Congratulations on trying to revitalize the written word no texting, no email, no whatever’s next! I do not own a computer proud of being “computer free”. Maybe old fashioned, but receiving a hand written letter is planning to be so refreshing! Thanks for focusing on a rapidly declining art the hand written letter and/or note.Can’t wait to receive my first letter! Judy Robertson

    Oh you improved imagine I am going to be coming into the sale! And bringing with me everyone I am able to. I went to past autumn’s sale to the first time, and went once again this spring. Now it’s a semi-annual necessity. Pumpkins in drop, tomato plants in spring
