TIME/TV: 1:07 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: You know what’s surprisingly cool? Actually watching a dome roof open. The Rogers Center roof opened around 11 a.m. It’s a sunny day here in Toronto.

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

ALL ABOUT CC: According to Elias, CC Sabathia is the fifth Yankees starter to have the outright MLB lead in wins at the all-star break (Vic Raschi in 1949, Bob Turley in 1958, Whitey Ford 1961 and Ron Guidry in 1978)… Sabathia has a 23.2-inning scoreless streak, the longest of his career… The last Yankees win was Sabathia’s complete game shutout on Sunday. It was the Yankees first complete game shutout at home since Chien-Ming Wang on July 28, 2006, and the first such game by a Yankees lefty since David Wells on April 10, 2003.

YANK-Es: The Yankees committed three errors on Thursday and two more on Friday. It’s the first time since June 27 of last year that they’ve had multiple errors in back-to-back games. It’s the the fourth time they’ve had consecutive multi-error games since Joe Girardi took over as manager.

THIS DATE: On July 16, 1941, Joe DiMaggio went 3-for-4 with three runs, a double and a walk to bring his hitting streak to 56 games. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the days DiMaggio’s streak came to an end.

UPDATE, 1:24 p.m.: Walk, stolen base and a sharp single up the middle have given the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead at the end of one inning. Sabathia struck out the last two batters he faced, but the damage was done.

UPDATE, 1:38 p.m.: Three straight hits and an RBI ground out have given the Yankees a 2-1 lead in the second inning. Swisher doubled, Jones singled, Gardner doubled and Nunez brought in the go-ahead run with a grounder.

UPDATE, 1:59 p.m.: Yankees managed to sneak a run there. Pretty bad base running decision by Cano, but the Blue Jays botched the play and Granderson scored. It’s now 3-1.

UPDATE, 2:03 p.m.: Error No. 12 for Nunez. Another bad throw to first.

UPDATE, 2:23 p.m.: The Yankees have scratched out another run — thanks largely to some aggressive base running by Brett Gardner — and it’s now 4-1 as Sabathia pitches with two on and no outs in the fourth.

UPDATE, 3:23 p.m.: Sabathia’s line since that RBI single in the first inning: 6.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K.

    Brett,

    After that initial proposed Jiminiez package, you could turn around and do Hughes or Nova+ for Rasmus.

    ***********

    It would blow my freaking mind but that’s exactly what I’m thinking.

    A deadline where the Yankees land Ubaldo Jimenez and Colby Rasmus. And Rafael Soriano returns healthy.

  3. J. Alfred Prufrock July 16th, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    Set it right, C.

  4. Mell July 16th, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    Ivan Nova doesn’t get you a sniff of Rasmus. Hughes might.

  5. Ghostwriter July 16th, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    Stop the bleeding, CC!

  6. Bret The Hitman July 16th, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    I’d rather keep Nova anyways.

  7. Salliedogs7 July 16th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Go CC. Go Yanks.

  8. luis July 16th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Bojo,

    Thanks, i guess it’s just practice. I went to school in the states for ten years so i have a good foundation. But since then, i’ve talked it a lot but not writen it very often.

  9. BoJo July 16th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Let it be noted that there was only 1 critique of Yankee line-up this morning….Just saying.

    Let’s see how our offense does.

  10. J. Alfred Prufrock July 16th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    Hey luis, you fooled me! :D

    Well, keep it up. You’re doing great!

  12. GreenBeret7 July 16th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    2 outs in the 1st inning. game over.

  13. Kevin Not That Kevin Brown July 16th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    This sign-stealing thing has clearly become a distraction for the team – an unwanted distraction given how they’re playing.

    I think it was bogus to begin with, Martin’s misguided way of explaining a really bad game on the mound for the team, and now they – and especially Girardi – appear to be obsessed with it. Changing signs when no one is on base?

    How much you want to bet that CC and Cervi will have none of that today?

  14. BoJo July 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    I got Tiki–my pure white short hair cat–sitting between my screen and keyboard today. Let’s see if she brings us luck!

  15. jeter2711 July 16th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    I seen this show yesterday.Tex swings at balls all out of the zone.He is worse then cano back in his hay day with these swings.I mean really 2 of those he hacked at were way out of the zone.

  16. yanks61 July 16th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Late to the party – as usual.

    Just wanted to comment on the Boyer/Nettles/Robinson discussion.

    I’ve been a Yankee fan since 1953 and saw all these guys play. Nettles certainly had greater power and Brooks was a better all around player, but Clete Boyer was the best defensive 3b I ever saw. He not only routinely made the diving plays you saw from Nettles in the WS, after making the stop he’d often throw out runners from his knees. He had a cannon for an arm.

    Also, Robinson himself once told an interviewer that Boyer was the greatest 3b he ever saw.

  17. luis July 16th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Hi JAP!,

    Thanks, but i guess you are just making me feel good about my english, i still remember my first english class. The teacher asks “whats your name??”and i answer “two o’clock”, LOL

  18. beedogs July 16th, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    this team could totally drop 4 to the blue jays. GREAT CATCHING OPTIONS WE’VE GOT.

    Aggressive base running is very disruptive to the defense.

  27. Benny Blanco July 16th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Can any of our pitchers have a freaking 1-2-3 inning? Damn.

  28. BoJo July 16th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    I know everybody knocks John Sterling…but he cracks me up.

    I can’t quit ya John….

  29. beedogs July 16th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    i guess you could say CC was due to give up a run, but cervelli is almost worse than not having a catcher at all.

  30. jeter2711 July 16th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Not going to score off romero so time to go get dinner this game is toast already.Its sad when our #1 gives up a run right away when we need a run.Romero owns us and we needed to hold them but guess C.C had another idea.

  31. Ghostwriter July 16th, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Toronto is so hot right now–they are really a tough assignment, but the Yanks really would do themselves a world of good by salvaging a split against them.

  32. tomingeorgia July 16th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    One run off CC? We are REALLY DOOMED!

  33. Rich in NJ July 16th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    If only they had a RH power hitter somewhere in the mL system.

  34. rr212 July 16th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    The way they have been playing….they may be doomed (for now).

  35. yanks61 July 16th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Bojo, yeah, I think Billy the Kid may have adored Clete as well.

    JAP, believe them – they’re absolutely right!

    Bojo, did you see my post the other day? You were wondering who the professional cook was on Lohud. I’m pretty sure it’s Chip.

  36. BoJo July 16th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    1 more run off CC and I’ll have to move Tiki and bring Pip or Teddy here.

  37. luis July 16th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    One run off CC? We are REALLY DOOMED

    ================

    The way he’s been going this year, one runoff of CC is like 6 against a normal pitcher. Toronto’s offens is really impressing the heck out of me this series.

  39. luis July 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Ugh!, Lousy batting discipline from Cano

  40. beedogs July 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Nice swing at a pitch that almost hit your knee, Cano.

    Thank you!

    When I started watching the team, Boyer was at third, Tresh at short (IIRC), Bobby R at 2B, and Peppy at first…with Ellie behind the plate…what a defense.

  42. Rich in NJ July 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Cone can scout talent and understands stats. He would be a great hire in the Yankees’ FO. If they don’t, someone else will.

  43. Kevin Not That Kevin Brown July 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Yikes, what happened to this team over the break? Davis made us look silly. We’ve allowed 31 hits and 24 runs, and take out Thames’ four RBIs and the rest of the team has scored four runs.

    We look kinda lame up there in the Great White North.

    Wow, what was Cano swinging at there.

  44. jeter2711 July 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Have you noticed we do NOT take walks anymore? Jeter Cano Tex nobody does get 3-2 and turn into chucky hack way to go Cano

  45. Rich in NJ July 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    luis got the subtext!!!!!!! :)

  46. Triple Short of a Cycle July 16th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    It hurts that much more without Bautista in the lineup

    Not sure he wants “a real job.” Pretty well off financially…

  48. BoJo July 16th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    What a call by Sterling…Davis made the catch…

  49. Rich in NJ July 16th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    Far richer people want challenges (see hedge fund managers), BoJo. Make him say no.

    Greg Golson Andruw Jones with the RBI Single!

  57. yanks61 July 16th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Ghostwriter, I had the great privilege of seeing some of the greatest players ever on three teams, all in one city. It was the golden age of baseball in NY!

  58. Keith--FL July 16th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Batting Averages in our line-up all below .300….I I know people say pitching is needed most but our offense since last summer is just so inconsistent, so homer dependent, old in a bunch of spots, doesn’t a team need at least 2 players hitting at .300 or above to really win in the postseason….our offense will wilt in the postseason this year like in the ALCS last year vs. Texas…..Cashman needs to shake up this offense bad…..tired of the excuse of leading the league in runs, that’s b/c of alot of 8-12 run outbursts….just look at the games we have been shutout or scored 1 run…..

  59. luis July 16th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    And of course, Jones is making me look like a fool when i volunteered to pay his plane ticket to Curacao!,

  60. LGY July 16th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Tex, one out away from the 230s.

  61. LockDown July 16th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    LGY, How do you do the crossing out?

  62. tomingeorgia July 16th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Bojo,
    I’ve got a three-legged cat named Annie that I’ve tried to get watch the games with me. She’s a Braves fan though, unfortunately.

  63. Rich in NJ July 16th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    “I don’t know how he was able to penetrate your cryptic post. You’re the master of subtlety. ”

    Actually, repetitive subtlety. ;) But when the issue is trading their best hitting prospect since Jeter, I get my back up.

  64. rr212 July 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Jones is our hottest hitter right now. :D

  65. Rich in NJ July 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Gardner can hit LHP.

  66. Keith--FL July 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Always works, second I complain about the offense we score :-)

  67. LGY July 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Gardner RBI total punished once again by a slow fatty batting in front of him.

  68. Ghostwriter July 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    I don’t know why Girardi insists on starting Gardner.

  69. Salliedogs7 July 16th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Set up.

  70. Irreverent Discourse July 16th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    Can we get some applause for Girardi for putting up a brilliant lineup against Romero? Please?

  71. jeter2711 July 16th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    Just think if Cano did not swing at ball 4

    Field of dreams is my favorite baseball movie, it reminds me a lot about my father and my self.

    How so? Did you lose him at a young age? Did you share a love of baseball? Did you two fight a lot?

    Hope it brought good memories.

  90. rr212 July 16th, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    need a quick 1, 2, 3 here and get Romero back out there.

    Bojo,

    Well… Good mostly, but the movie reminds both about my regret of never telling him how much i cared about him. And a fight we had because i wanted to play ball instead of going to school. I went to school and got injured so couldn’t play anymore.

  95. Ghostwriter July 16th, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    Good inning for CC.

  96. tomingeorgia July 16th, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    The scary thing is Tex is a hard worker. It’s not like he isn’t putting out max effort. And the results? The guy sux.

  106. syd_cash July 16th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    No worries, we had an incredible time together, i just wish i could have been more open with him. The only reason i said this here is because the movie reminds me of him, it’s so up lifting, again it’s my favorite movie!. Back to baseball heads up play by gardner there!

  121. LockDown July 16th, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Very classy of you to complain about the manager’s strategy, and when it works out, you complain about the hit. We’re up 4-1, yet you still find reasons to complain. It’s actually amazing, most people really couldn’t pull that off.

  163. Yogi Mantle July 16th, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    This isn’t the first time that the Blue Jays have been involved with a suspicion being talked about for them stealing signs in a non-kosher way.

    When a manager brings up something like that it is more about sending the message to the other club to stop it.

    I don’t believe any manager when they express “shock” about anything to do with an accusation of them cheating or gaming it in some way. Like they would do anything else, guilty or not.

    Bunting Gardener over to third with no outs puts him in position to score off of a ground ball or a sac fly because he is so fast. For some reason, you don’t seem to get that. The strategy worked out perfectly, actually. It went according to the plan.

    What’s to complain about? The Yankees are winning. They’re one of the best teams in baseball. Other teams, other fans, could only dream of having a team like the Yankees to call their own. You are actually coming to a message board while watching a game that your team is winning to complain.

    Why all the effort to be negative about nothing?

    The Phils’ pitching is pretty scary, but their hitting isn’t. They can be beaten, particularly if a team goes at their starting pitching in the manner that you suggest, wearing them down, and getting them out of the game.

    Because he lacks the bat speed he used to have, so he has to start guessing to keep up with the fast ball, so instead of letting the ball travel and hit it the other way he has to start early so he rolls over the offspeed stuff.

    If the ball rolls over one for time, Granderson would be safe.

  224. Bo knows July 16th, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    He’s cheating, trying to pull the ball to compensate for the loss in his bat speed. It seems to me that he is figuring out how to compete with his diminished capabilities. I think that he will be fine.

    —————————————

    If you’re cheating by starting the bat, you go up the middle. That’s always been my take on it. There are many options including a lighter bat. My fear is that Jeter can’t adjust, it’s been a year plus.

    You might have answered this already. Was up for discussion when thinking who wore #6.

    Was Clete Boyer or Craig Nettles the best Yankee defensive 3rd baseman you saw? I thought it was Boyer, in my mind better defensively than the great Brooks Robinson in the same era.

    Gardner was an outstanding bunter in the minors…hits and sacs. No idea why he lost that ability. Not sure if he bunted for hits and people would think he couldn’t hit or what. People have admired Suzuki for 10 years for his bunting skills and knack for infield hits.

  232. BTX July 16th, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    “Eric Chavez is scheduled to DH by early next week. No word on the team.”

    Is this before or after he ‘feels something’ in one of his body parts and has to shut it down for 3-4 days?

    He is like Nick Johnson. Even when he comes back, you know it is only a matter of time before he goes back on the DL. Especially if he is going to get a lot of PT at 3rd with A-Rod out.

  233. Ghostwriter July 16th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    Tex’s OPS is close to .900, and ranks among the league leaders. I’m pretty sure that he doesn’t have much to be embarrassed about (although I would like to see his batting average a bit higher too).

  234. Nick in SF July 16th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    How about two or three more Ks, CC.

    If Aaron Hill ever fully recovers from his concussion, this Toronto offense will be very good. Lind is a good player…Snyder looks promising…Bautista…etc.

  238. GreenBeret7 July 16th, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Trader, boyer was every bit of Robinson’s equal on defense. His best was going deep down the line and coming in on bunts and nubbers. Superior arm to Robinson. The bat hurt him. Between Rizzuto and Jeter, Boyer was the best shortstop NYYs had over that stretch…including Kubek who was really a center fielder left fielder.

    I posted all of the Yankees and their numbers throughout their history, if you missed it.

  239. 86w183 July 16th, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    Better than Jerry Kenney??

  240. m July 16th, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    CC getting stronger as the game wears on. If the Jays cooperate, he might be able to go the whole way.

    Though I’m sure Girardi will wedge in someone who “needs to get some work”. ;)

  241. BoJo July 16th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Never knew that Kubek was an OFer…thanks for that.

  242. GreenBeret7 July 16th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    If Toronto ever moved an outfielder, Snyder is my target. I might even be willing to deal with Lind’s defense in right field.

  243. BoJo July 16th, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    A #3 hitter that can’t hit an off speed pitch due to an all out swing is embarassing. OPS is a stat indicator. I go by quality at bats and I don’t see Teix with many of those. Show him a CU and it’s curtains.

  247. Triple Short of a Cycle July 16th, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    This CC guy is pretty good. Wonder what store they sell them at, we should pick up a few more.

  249. RadioKev July 16th, 2011 at 3:23 pm

    The Blue Jays are just overmatched right now. Loving it.

  250. GreenBeret7 July 16th, 2011 at 3:24 pm

    Kubek started in a lot of games in center and left when Mantle was out…until Maris arrived. Maris may have been the best CF NYY had. Joe Pepitone was solid in center, too.

  251. Nick in SF July 16th, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    I took CC to get over 6 K’s (winner) and to get more than Romero (a push at 7 each and a winner if he gets one more).

    :oops:

  252. UnKnown July 16th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    too bad they got that run in the 1st. Would’ve been nice to extend that scoreless inning streak Carsten had going on.

  254. 86w183 July 16th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    GB 7 —

    Pepi had a great arm, but I always thought he was a poor fielder in terms of tracking the ball.

    Never saw Maris in CF, but the man could play RF as well as anyone in that era not named Clemente

  255. Nick in SF July 16th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    I also took Cano to get over 2.5 total hits, runs, and RBI’s. He’s lagging. :mad:

    Maris had a terrific, probably unappreciated, arm. Witnessed him catch a deep fly in right and gun down the fastest player of his time, Luis Aparicio, trying to score from 3rd.

  260. Yank1 July 16th, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    Tex needs to give up switch hitting and just go at it from he right side.

    Where is the genius K. Long in all of this? How can he watch the $180 million dollar cornerstone 1B turn into Giambi cira 2008? Giambi as a 37 yr old in the final yr of his deal will probably out OPS the 30 yr old Tex this year. Hell, might out average him too (.247).
