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

WEATHER: It’s actually perfect here in Boston. Seems like the Yankees always run into some sort of weather here, but it’s supposed to be nice all week.

UMPIRES: HP Ed Rapuano, 1B Brian O’Nora, 2B Alfonso Marquez, 3B Mark Wegner

TEX MARKS THE SPOT: Mark Teixeira’s eight straight seasons of at least 30 home runs and 100 RBI is the longest such streak ever for a switch hitter. Only two other Yankees first baseman have recorded at least three seasons of 30 and 100, Don Mattingly (three times) and Lou Gehrig (10 times).

SECOND HOME: Robinson Cano is a career .352 (86-for-244) hitter at Fenway Park. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that’s the highest career batting average among Yankees all-time at Fenway Park (minimium 200 at-bats).

IN THE BEGINNING: The Yankees are 21-22 in series openers this season. They have rebounded to go 29-14 in the second game of series.

UPDATE, 7:19 p.m.: The Yankees thought Granderson was hit by a pitch, and they didn’t get the call. Now Sabathia hits Ellsbury to open the bottom of the first.

UPDATE, 7:37 p.m.: The Yankees have the lead after an RBI single up the middle by Chavez in the second inning. The Yankees still have runners at the corners with one out.

UPDATE, 7:57 p.m.: Sabathia just stranded the bases loaded in the second inning, but he’s already thrown 50 pitches and the Yankees have a short bullpen. Something to keep an eye on.

UPDATE, 8:28 p.m.: Dontcha know? RBI double by Cano scores Granderson from first and pushes the Yankees lead to 2-0 in the fourth.

UPDATE, 8:42 p.m.: Chavez’s second RBI single of the night boosted the lead to 3-0, but the Red Sox have answered with Carl Crawford’s solo homer in the fourth. Sabathia’s still not looking his best, but I’m not ready to rule out six or seven innings from him.

UPDATE, 8:51 p.m.: Now six or seven innings is looking like a long shot. Sabathia’s allowed back-to-back singles to the bottom of the order, and a two-out, RBI double to Marco Scutaro.

UPDATE, 8:53 p.m.: Sabathia made Gonzalez look bad on an inning-ending strikeout. That’s the third time CC has struck out Gonzalez — Pedroia, Ellsbury and Ortiz also have at least one strikeout apiece — but the bottom three hitters in the Red Sox order are 3-for-4 with two walks and a home run.

UPDATE, 8:57 p.m.: Francisco Cervelli just cleared the monster. Seriously. It just happened. It’s a 4-2 Yankees lead.

UPDATE, 9:19 p.m.: Terrific diving catch by Cano might be the turning point of this game. Sabathia got out of the fifth inning with a strikeout, and it looks like the bullpen might take it from here. Cory Wade has been getting loose.

UPDATE, 9:29 p.m.: Sabathia is back out to start the sixth, but he’s already started the inning by running the count full against No. 9 hitter Darnell McDonald.

UPDATE, 9:44 p.m.: Of all people, Larry Rothschild was ejected at the end of the benches clearing incident. Larry’s one of the most soft-spoken people I’ve met, but he was irate.

UPDATE, 9:53 p.m.: Here’s Cory Wade to pitch the seventh. Dave Robertson has pitched the past two nights.

UPDATE, 10:11 p.m.: Big out and a big reaction from Boone Logan, striking out Darnell McDonald to strand the bases loaded, then walking off with a massive fist pump. Francisco Cervelli, meanwhile, was so pumped his head actually exploded.

UPDATE, 10:45 p.m.: Brett Gardner really knows how to go get it in left field. Big catch for the first out of the eighth.

    I fully expect Sabathia to come out and do what he is supposed to do tonight. The past is the past – kick some Sux butt!

  2. Benny Blanco August 30th, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    Lets go yankees. CC, give me at least 8inn 0BB and 12K’s, thanks.! Ohh, and a no hitter for the first 7 inn. I think that’s all, thanks. Have a great game :)

  3. MG August 30th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    it isn’t like the Sox have dominated CC each time he’s faced them in 2011.

    His first start, in April, was 5 2/3 with 1 run.

    His next start he allowed 2 runs through 6 and they got him in the 7th

    His next start he shut them out for 6 and they got him again in the 7th.

    He was bad in his last start, that happens occasionally.

    It isn’t exactly like they hit everything he throws, I would think he needs to make an adjustment when it’s the 3rd time through the order and I’m sure he’s thinking the same thing.

  4. vinslol August 30th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    if there were ever a game for a no hitter..

  5. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    Set it right, C.

    already the ump is having an impact

  20. Bryan August 30th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    how many runs does the non-ace ace give up today

    I am going with his usual Boston 6

  21. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    Let’s go CC!!!!! Man up and destroy these pretenders!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Relax. Lackey stinks.

    how many runs does the non-ace ace give up today

    —-

    sounds about right.

    Lackey’s ERA is about 6.

  24. MG August 30th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Lackey made some good pitches that inning, he looked a lot more like the guy who used to be the Angels ace than the guy who was lit up on a regular basis earlier this year and last year.

    That doesn’t mean the Yankees won’t get him, they used to score off him at his best, they just need to make good swings and make him work.

  25. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    CC’s got this tonight…..

  26. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    To the few Yankee fans on this board, enjoy the game.

  27. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    I hope that hit by pitch doesn’t put granderson into a big slump. But it probably will. I hate how the sox always hurt the yanks even when they don’t do it on purpose.

  28. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Nice CC

  29. MG August 30th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    statement pitch…

  30. waka flocka August 30th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    i kind of wonder if that was intentional. it probably wasn’t but its interesting.

  31. luis August 30th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    YES!!!!!!!, maybe not smart but hell yeah!!

  32. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    How long before the warning?

  33. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    good….
    make the statement early!

  34. jacksquat August 30th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    I was about to say CC should plunk Gonzalez, Ellsbury works but it puts the leadoff hitter on and he’s a top basestealer with Cervelli throwing out 10% or something pitiful.

  35. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    Not good putting Ellsbury on.

  36. MG August 30th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    CC wasn’t trying to hit him, he was backing him off the plate but didn’t care if the pitch hit him either…

  37. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    do the Sox ever swing and make out on the first pitch against us?

  38. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    It’s smart, luis. Long overdue.

  39. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    Great that was basically a double. Especially with cervelli behind the plate. Can’t cc ever have a 1,2,3 inning against these guys

  40. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    of course it wasn’t intentional, but i dont think he cares that he hit him either…

  41. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Comet, are you getting an orange banner across the top that you’ve logged in too many times in too short of a period?

  42. waka flocka August 30th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

  43. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Good trade, Ellsbury for Scutaro.

  44. The Mercury Strikes Back August 30th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    he will probably around to score. bad move by CC.

    Doesn’t look like it hurted.

    should have make it count. .. drill him between the eyes.

  45. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    i swear we are cursed with the RedSox…our normally good play just turns into craziness!!

  46. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Nice going jeter. You can’t give these guys extra outs.

  47. QuickHookJoe August 30th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Jeter killing this team by being selfish as usual forcing himself to play when he is not healthy, Disgusting. Just Disgusting.

  48. Betsy August 30th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Granderson was hit on the hand? Ugh…

  49. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Why does the Yankee defense turn into the NY Giants special teams when they play this team. Its maddening

  50. luis August 30th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    JAP,

    I wouldn’t put the lead off man on base, but as you say it’s been long overdue, time to push back

  51. Betsy August 30th, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Oh boy, I can see this game thread is going to be fun

  52. Ken Phelps August 30th, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    that’s a tough play, Jeter wants the ball coming across the base but Teix couldn’t do it because of Ellsbury.

    Jeter had to reach back and throw flatfooted, he rarely makes a throw that badly.

    CC has good stuff tonight…

  57. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Way to go Sabathia!!!!!!!!!! Sit down loser.

    no

  59. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    I could care less if CC hits each and every one of them tonight. In fact it would make my day

  60. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    The stupidity of some of you people is amazing. hard to believe that you’re even smart enough to know when to breathe.

  61. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    luis, C is going to throw a good game. He has to establish himself inside. You just saw AGon go down. That should pre-empt the usual bush BS from Boston. I guess the Yanks turned a deaf ear to Howard’s pleas to get hit but take the high road ;).

  62. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    I’ve taken poops bigger than Pedroia…

  63. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    I am curious to see how small cc’s strikezone will be tonight. The last couple of times that he faced them the umpd squeezed him on the outside corner.

  64. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    am i missing something?

    What about Pedroia’s numbers makes him an MVP candidate?

  65. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    ac1,

    He hasn’t looked too good. Shall we look at Tex’s numbers against them?

  66. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    when the yankees have an advantage in the pitching matchup such as tonight, the umpires will close the gap.

    gonzalez’ peripheral stats should rule him out of the MVP discussion. His batting average is the only thing that has him in the MVP discussion. Ellsbury and Pedroia have better claims than Gonzalez.

  67. Benny Blanco August 30th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    where was that????

  68. LGY August 30th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Just turned on the TV and was suprised to find the Yankees playing the Sox. I honestly had no idea that series started tonight.

    I can’t remember a less eventful or interesting final month of the season.

    And in the words of Clyde Frazier the Yankees Infield plays matador D against the Sox this season.

  69. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    where was that 1-2 pitch??? right down the middle

    Twice in one inning, and he STILL struck him out.

    Stupid comment. He was on a tear and then sat for a pair of games. You can’t stay sharp that way. He was on a stretch of 46 games with an OPS of .950. They don’t want him to hit against LHP, so he sits. Even though his career numbers are superb against LHP. He’s not being set up to succeed.

  129. pkyankfan69 August 30th, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Chavez attempted to GIDP it. Posada accomplished the mission.

  131. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Chavez had to do a better job taking the infielder out. A Sox player would of went flying into Cano or Jeter like Ellsbury did to Jeter. Damn is Posada slow. My grandma would of beat that out.

  142. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    I disagree with this take pitches garbage that he is saying. One of the reasons why they take so many pitchers against the Yankees is because half of them never get called as strikes

  170. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    50 pitches in 2 innings? WTF??? WOW!

    and why doesn’t Chad post about how Tex doesn’t mark the spot against boston with his 1 hit against them this season.. pathetic !! The guy is a dud when it counts..

    WTF is going on with CC and the SOX what he can’t beat them anymore?????????????????????

    Hate me if you want, and yes, I do consider myself a die-hard YANKEE fan but Boston is a better team than we are this year.

  201. luis August 30th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    All i’m expecting for the yanks to get the same strikezone

  202. mick August 30th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    why does cervelli raise the glove when the pitch is at the knees.
    just bc he catches it low doesn’t make it a ball.
    when will martin start catching cc?

  203. mick August 30th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    CC will be lucky to last 6.
    These momzas are tough outs.
    Its all in their approach…

  204. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    CC is 95-97 with the fastball….and he’s got a good slider and CU tonight….he is either just missing with his locations or he’s hitting his spot and getting squeezed. Hopefully he’ll dial in the command….if he does then he’ll be fine. They need to light Lackey up….I’m sick of him….he stinks.

  205. Niblick August 30th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Martin should be catching. Cervelli is a moron. stop nibbling with Darnell MacDonald and just put the ball by him. he sucks.

  209. LGY August 30th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    How about you guys complain about CC if and when ya know he actually gives up a run.

    Or is that too much to ask?

  210. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    Boston is just like the Yanks….they grind AB’s and take what the umpires give them. If the ump isn’t calling borderline pitches then they’ll stand there all night.

  211. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 8:04 pm

  214. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    why does cervelli raise the glove when the pitch is at the knees.
    just bc he catches it low doesn’t make it a ball.
    when will martin start catching cc?

    ___

    I think cervelli is catching here because cc is more comfy with him and he needs to get out of this boston funk….

    martin will catch him more and in the playoffs…

    I still hate Cervelli

  244. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    GB,

    you just sat that one on a tee for Randy :)

  245. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Gonna take 5 runs minimum to win this game. The Posada double play, though absurdly predictable, was huge and a symbol of this entire season series against them.

  246. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    luis August 30th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    All i’m expecting for the yanks to get the same strikezone
    —————————————————

    that doesnt matter, we swing at everything the sox throw at us.. just look at how many walks we have agaibst them this year. like 5 total.

    we’re over-matched period !

  247. waka flocka August 30th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    some of you sound like pre-2004 Red Sox fans with all this poor me bull.

    good play swish…..

  249. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    YER OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  250. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Great throw Swish!

  251. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Gardy had a good AB, maybe he can get untracked tonight. Derek should have creamed that fastball.

    Atta boy, Swish.

  252. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Nice! Swisher’s D is underated….he’s really improved.

  253. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    wow a posada move by scutaro! nice.

  254. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

  265. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Underrated or not, I think Swish played himself back into getting his option picked up after it looked like he would be gone after this year (april and may).

  266. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Is CC ever going to have an easy inning against these guys?

  267. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    P,

    the perception of Swisher is that he’s a poor defender…..and he’s really not anymore.

  268. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Yankeefem, Lackey should be Gardy’s kind of pitcher.

  269. sunny615 August 30th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Cervelli is such a putz.

  270. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    cc is getting no calls on the bottom of the zone, none…

  271. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Great strike zone tonight. :roll:

  272. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Picking up Swisher’s option is the easiest no-brainer in history.

  273. BJK August 30th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen CC squeezed so badly. This is getting ridiculous.

  274. randy l. August 30th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    “you just sat that one on a tee for Randy”

    blake-

    when you get one right down the middle you have to jump on it :)

  275. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    It’s weird that CC has so much trouble with Crawford seeing as how Crawford is awful against LHP and CC is one of the best….Crawford is hitting like .315 or something against CC

  276. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    CC has 6K and no runs in 3 innings and half of the comments about him are knocks, unbelievable…

  283. pkyankfan69 August 30th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Here comes a big inning off Lackgay right here… At least a 3 spot on the board.

  284. luis August 30th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Yogi,

    As long as the same zone is applied to both teams i don’t mind….the problem is that lackey is getting calls that CC is not

  285. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Remi is good too….trade Kay, Jones, and, AJ for Remi and Watney.

  286. mick August 30th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    what was scutero thinking?…he’s no Scooter.

  287. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    least Farnsworth and Clemens showed some balls.. we need a take no stuff pitcher that doesn’t have a problem throwing at somebody to move their feet a bit.. Boston just looks so comfortable facing us.

  288. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    Grandy, Tex, Cano. Time to get some runs. Tex’s swing looked better in his last AB.

  289. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    Costas and Kaat are calling the game Thursday….I would be looking forward to it…..but.

  290. mick August 30th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    we are getting squeezed like oj…who is this blind ump?

  291. waka flocka August 30th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    leading the league in HRs and you’re squaring to bunt. stop that.

    blake

    The perception of Swisher is that he is a poor defender and he is not anymore.

    ————————————————–

    He has had a better season defensively for sure, but he is nothing more than average. Even if he had a BG type of defensive year, that doesn’t make all years previous non existent and he has been a below average defense more often than above average.

    I will give him an A++ for his effort tho.

  298. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    that lackey pitch was lower and more outside than at least 5 pitches cc threw and were called balls.

  299. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    If the Yankees take Heidi Watney, does that mean we’re stuck with boyfriend Jason Varitek?

  301. The Mercury Strikes Back August 30th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    Trivia Q:

    Which pitcher is the active leader in losses against the red sx?

    ———

    CC ?

  302. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    78: Rice, Guidry, 86: Clemens, Mattingly, not sure about the third pair…

  303. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Tex better figure out how to hit off speed pitches because that is all they are throwing him

  304. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Hang in there, Texy.

  305. Benny Blanco August 30th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    :(

  306. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    He hit 237 against the Sox last year.

    another stellar at bat by Mark. I’m done calling him by his nickname

  307. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Come on Cano drive one.

  308. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Now.. I can deal with everything the NYY do that frustrate me.. the mismanaging by Girardi. the over agressive at the plate (helpin the pitcher), the dumb decisions to bunt, the low averages, etc..

    2 things I cannot stand about this team..

    1) Swinging at the first pitch

    2) Mark Teixeira and how un-clutch he is.”

    I screamed YESSSSSS!!! in the mall when we signed Tex, but he is nothing like I thought he was going to be for us.. sure he has the HR, and RBI so you can’t say he is bad.. but he cannot play under pressure and that does not belong on this team.. just look at his post-season numbers and his stats against the sox… he sucks and I truly wish we didn’t give him a no trade because I’d rather take a shot at Pujols than overpay and carry Mark Unclutch Teixeira.

  309. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Yea!!! Thats how to do it Mark!!!!

  310. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Dontcha know!

  315. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Don’t you know it’s Cano!

  316. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Cano’s swing is incredible…..he’d hit .350 at Fenway. Another run for the Grandyman.

  317. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Grandy with a great read on the ball allows him to score.

  318. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    if dustin is an mpv candidate, cano is two steps above him…

  319. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Grandy was able to watch the ball the whole way and knew it wasn’t getting caught…:D

  320. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Haha, cutoff man had to go way out there to help Ells out…

  321. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Is there a left handed hitter on the Yankees that does a better job of going the other way than Cano?

  322. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    “Grandy with a great read on the ball allows him to score”

    yup….he was gone off the bat reading it was going to be off the Monster….MVP!

  323. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Go Cano!!!

  324. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    ———————————————————

    Triple, seriously, how many times do you have to see him suck before you move him out of the three hole? I went from absolute admiration of Tex to flat out hatred.

    I don’t feel he is a good fit in pinstripes.. I did once, but not anymore. Tex can’t handle the pressure.. just see my above post.

  325. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Cano is several flights of stairs above Dustin..

  326. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    “Is there a left handed hitter on the Yankees that does a better job of going the other way than Cano?”

    Gonzalez does it well also….

  327. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    P-

    You have been beating this drum all season. He is already at 30/100 and plays stellar defense. Yes we’d like a higher average, but look at some of the things he does right as well.

  328. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Robbie belongs in #3 spot.. he’s the man !!!! for as often as he doesn’t walk.. don’t worry Tex still fails twice as much.

  329. tomingeorgia August 30th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    Two crow hops on that play before the throw,R champ?

  330. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    It’s almost a given these days that if Grandy gets on base—ANY base—he’s gonna score :)

  331. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    While Arod is out I would love to see Swish bat between Granderson and Cano. Tex just kills rallies while he pops up off speed pitches

  332. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    TheStraw…

    Uhm, what about this did you not read or comprehend?

    “I screamed YESSSSSS!!! in the mall when we signed Tex, but he is nothing like I thought he was going to be for us.. sure he has the HR, and RBI so you can’t say he is bad.. but he cannot play under pressure”

    I give him credit for his 30/100 but he has not been the .300 or even close that we expected.. he does not deserve the contract he got or has he earned it. It’s the post-season that matters most and he has been a .100 dud! he cant take the NY pressure.

  333. Nilsson August 30th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Cano really does have an all-purpose batting swing. It’s versatile for whatever ballpark he’s hitting in.

  334. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    “Robbie belongs in #3 spot.. ”

    Nope that’s for Alex, Robbie stays clean-up. At least if I filled out the line-up card.

  335. Benny Blanco August 30th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    The redsox take forever…..

  336. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Girardi cant afford to move Mark out of his spot in the order and drop him because the media will make a huge deal and try to create controversy and we cannot count on Mark being a professional and accepting his demotion with grace.

  337. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    That’s why Grandy scores so many runs….he hits a lot of extra base hits and also he’s a good base runner that can get himself into scoring position and score from 1st on doubles.

  338. tomingeorgia August 30th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    edit “UZR champ”

  339. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Good at bat from swish there

  342. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    see Swish just had a great at bat.. Tex swings at just about everything now.. and to top it off he is lates on damn near everything and looks only for fastballs.

    he’s supposed to be in his prime !!

  343. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    P-

    So I guess the ALCS game he won on a walkoff HR in 2009 doesn’t count, huh?

  344. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    Yanks best lineup right now might be.

    Jeter
    Swisher
    Granderson
    Arod
    Cano
    Teixera

  345. MG August 30th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    Lackey has started nibbling, it’s just a matter of time before he makes a bad pitch and gets hurt by the long ball…

  346. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    The Yanks need Chavez or Posada to get hot

  347. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Lackey up to 75 pitches, I didn’t see that coming. :wink:

  348. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    As hot as Swisher has been I’d like to see him moved up to #3 against righties followed by A-Rod, Cano and Tex as #6

  349. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Grandy plays hard and works hard.. he is much better than I expected but I knew he would be a good contrinutor to this team.. ust not this much.

    I liked him when he was on the tigers and like him even more now ! :P

  358. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Chavez brought his clutchness tonight. That RBI single was a little better struck

  359. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    At least Boston has their own AJ Burnett on their team now….

    And he would still have to be their #3 in the playoffs.

    At least we can afford to leave AJ off the PS roster if necessary.

  360. waka flocka August 30th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    can the people who said Lackey looked good tonight chime in on whats happening right now? it looks like hes getting his ass kicked to me but i can’t be too sure.

  361. MG August 30th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Hard hit, but right at someone.

  369. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Tex should still hit 3rd vs LHP…..he’s just not a 3 hitter though anymore left handed…..he’s a power guy that should hit 5th or 6th from that side.

    boy Jorge is killing some rallies tonight.

  370. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Posada is terrible. Kills us again. DH is a blackhole

  371. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

  376. Benny Blanco August 30th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Giradi plays posada in the boston series and he grounds into two dp’… you cant make this up…LOL

    posada cant catch a break!

  377. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    YEY ! WE AGREE FINALLY!

  378. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Yankee outs: 12
    Posada outs: 4

    please george, whiff next time. Awful.

  379. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Posada has to be kidding me. Why is he even in the lineup??? The Sox NEVER ever siwng at the 1st pitch and washed up Posada does it with a pitcher on the ropes. Let Jones play at least he can still hit.

  380. LGY August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Montero pls.

  381. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Rivers had no arm, either.

  382. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Yankees were going great till Posada swings at the first pitch into a DP… the second one he hit this game.

    Loved Posada, but his bat just isn’t good enough.

  383. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Of course, Posada bails out Lackey again.. This song is getting soooooooooooooo old!

  384. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Don’t worry. We only have baseballs best minor league hitter in AAA. Wasting away there while our DH has a 310 obp

  385. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Hard hit, but right at someone.
    ——————–\\

    wow .. just wow.. J. ALfred Prufrock (The Optimist)

  386. J. Alfred Prufrock August 30th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    Well, if they want the man to hit they need to stop benching him for 2 and 3 games.

    You all really can suck it, you Posada haters. You don’t even deserve to root for this team.

    Go hang yourselves.

  387. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    or should I say the in-denial? I mean c’mon man next you’ll see he had a great at bat swinging at the first pitch. LOL

  388. fantasygame101 August 30th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    2 at bats 2 dp.. What is the record for consecutive GIDP at bats?

  389. mick August 30th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    drop po to 10th in the order
    he’ll prolly play tmw vs beckett
    but montero vs lester on thurs.

  390. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:44 pm

  391. Nilsson August 30th, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    MG August 30th, 2011 at 8:40 pm
    Ellsbury has an arm reminiscent of the worst days of Bernie, Roy White, and Johnny Damon…

    Is it written in the binder that Jones can’t play against righties? Posada has cost them 2 big innings. With a pitcher on the ropes it’s absolutely unacceptable to swing at the 1st pitch.

    I don’t hate Jorge.. in fact he is one of my favorite yanks of all time.. but when your time is up, your time is up. He’s had plenty of chances to step up.. do you not remember the dreadful .098 when he was playing every day?????!?!?!?!?!??! HELLLLOOOOOOOOO !!!

  395. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Nice hanger CC.. Geez!

  396. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    someone has forgotten to tell CC that little CC sucks vs. lefties!

  397. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    knew that was gone soon as it hit the bat. Crawford may have been having a bad season, but not against us.

  398. Rob_NY August 30th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Paging Dr. Jesus.

  399. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    I don’t understand why CC can’t get Crawford out…..it’s just one of those flukey things because he’s abysmal against pretty much all other lefties.

  400. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Npw we are down by only 2 runs thanks to jorge bailing out lackey with his first pitch swinging DP… and how often does jorge swing at the first pitch and make an out????????????

    WAY TO FREAKIN OFTEN!

  401. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Mick

    How many diffrent names do you post here under? I know of at least three, so be honest.

  402. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Ellsbury has always had a bad arm. I guess the “protein” shakes didn’t do anything for his arm strength that it did to triple the number of homers he’s had compared to any previous year.

  403. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    P-

    It’s not that I disagree on Tex…I do think that he is not happy with his inconsistency at the plate…but I think you are being unnecessarily harsh on him considering he is still somewhat productive.

    Jorge, on the other hand, is cooked.

  404. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    CC is the only lefty that Crawford can hit. CC should dominate lefties and he doesn’t especially not the Sox. The Sox are jumping on the 1st pitch just like they did in CC’s last start, it’s time to adjust.

  405. waka flocka August 30th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    JAP,

    shut up you dork. he wasn’t hitting when they weren’t benching him. does Laura know that you and Jorge are sleeping together?

  406. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    really need to start getting the bottom of this lineup out…

  407. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Bottom of the order too… Come on CC.. Bear down and beat these punks.. 3 consecutive hits now..

  408. Bryan August 30th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Non ace ace rearing into form

  409. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    C’mon CC, sack up here and get out of this….

  410. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    here goes CC failing against the redsox yet again.. wow another meatball. WTF, it has to be mental at this point.

  411. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    How come our ace can’t handle these Sox.. It’s a struggle every time for CC now.

  412. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    OMG CC get it together…why do you have to give up runs right after we score (or struggle in innings right after we score). Sheesh

  413. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    CC stinks against the Sox. This game will be tied in seconds…

  414. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Posada has bailed Lackey out 2 times in this game with 4 outs and now CC is doing his thing, giving back runs we just gave him. sigh

  415. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    cannot let 7-8-9 do this much damage, because eventually ellsbury and pedroia will make him regret it…

  417. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    I’m so tired of losing to these chumps and CC isn’t making this any easier. 73 pitches in the 4th inning..

  418. MG August 30th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Jorge has a slugging % of .717 and an OPS of 1.037 when he puts the 1st pitch in play in 2011, some of you just have no clue.

    A DP hurts but it’s part of the game.

    ————————————————————————————————

    I am being harsh on Tex.. it’s like the guy finally scored his big $$ contract and is more concerned about philanthropy then working extra hard like Granderson to correct his late-swinging… I don’t feel bad for him at all and I am overly harsh because everybody seems to let him ride.. if it was Arod hitting .250 with 30/100 the last 2 seasons he would be lynched already and booed.

  420. stuart a August 30th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    jorge is killing them tonight big time..

    4 outs on 2 or 3 total pitches…….

  421. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Great pitch.

  422. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Nice pitch!

  423. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    It’s really annoying how CC can beat every team except these guys. You never see him miss right over the plate as much as he does when he faces them. It’s usually the garbage in their lineup that beats him also.

  424. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Very lucky there on the call strike 3

  425. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Tex’s last 2 seasons vs RHP.

    2010: .244/.342/.457/.799
    2011: .224/.327/.478/.805

    He’s just been a different hitter from the left side the last 2 seasons…it’s not a blip. Still has a ton of power from that side and hit’s a lot of homers from that side….but the swing doesn’t allow the consistency you like to see from your 3 hitter.

  426. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Please dont let Mark Scooter hurt us again

  427. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    i asked before why tex cannot replicate his rh swing from the left side….

    why is that so hard to do?

  428. luis August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    That was excellent example of setting a batter up….he established the inside part of the plate again, and then gets the call on the outside corner….thats pitching guys

  429. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Scutaro also has had good numbers against CC

  430. waka flocka August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    why don’t you post Jorge’s line for the entire season and then tell me who doesn’t have a clue

  431. JobaTipsHisCap August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

  434. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Cervelli moves too much behind the plate. Just catch the ball…..

  435. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    P,

    I couldn’t agree more about Mark. In a big spot I would rather see anyone else up including Cervelli or Posada. You know its bad when you are satisfied with a strikeout so he doesn’t his into a DP

  436. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    I really can’t stand how Scutero keeps killing them….he’s not any good.

  437. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Why, CC?

  438. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

  439. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    the 4 worst hitters are doing all the damage…..

  440. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    2 for 2 against CC for Mark Scooter. Just gave back the 2 runs we got. Yippee!

  441. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

  443. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

  444. JobaTipsHisCap August 30th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

  451. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    Garbage Scutaro owns CC. So that wasn’t surprising. Can CC actually locate and stop throwing pitches right down the middle?!?!?! The Sox are definitely in CC’s head.

  452. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    Hate to say it but this game likely ended when posada made his 4th out of the game. Changed everything, sox have momentum now and it looks like most of the other 10 losses to this team.

  453. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

  455. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    JF,

    I don’t have the link…..when did you post it? Regardless though….Tex’s swing doesn’t allow him to adjust to beat the shift from the left side….so regardless of anything it comes back to that as the core problem.

  456. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    Posada has f’d them. Not just this game. All season

  457. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    Jorge has been a great Yankee for a long time. There is no doubt that he has struggled this year, but the man is trying his hardest.

    You don’t start abusing great Yankees because they struggle. Yeah 2 DP’s against the Sox is hard to take for some of you, but have a little class. Also, If you have a problem with him playing that’s on Giradi, not Jorge.

    The difference between our teams is their players perform versus us and ours go dormant or negatively impact games.

    Scutaro, reddick, saltalamachia…..all outperform against us.

    Posada, gardner, catchers spot……all suck or are detrimental when we play them.

    Posada has no right in this lineup anymore. It’s about baseball now. I’m sorry it sounds bad, but he is awful and should let guys who have earned the right to play. He’s made his money!

  471. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    Big K. That is what Aces do. They find it when they don’t have their best stuff. Don’t want tomhear this “not an ace” crap. He just needs to find a way against these guys tonight, and if he can do that he’ll be fine the rest of the season against them.

    Time to sit posada again and see what Jones can do. At least jones will strike out or homer and avoid any GIDP. Posada is just awful tonight.

  475. P August 30th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    make any excuse you want but Tex has lost his bat speed and that is the main issue!

  479. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    @tar. We all love posada. But this isn’t a sentimental game. Produce or go. Cheer during old tuners day 2015. Montero should be playing.

  480. blake August 30th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    CC bent…didn’t break. They need to get those runs back because this is going to be a bullpen battle and the Sox’s pen is more rested.

  481. MG August 30th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Posada’s slash line from the left side of the plate in 2011 is .275/.350/.470/.820

    He doesn’t start against lefthanders, that ship has sailed.

    Got anyone better than that to put in the lineup on the current Yankee roster?

    Tar, key words u used were “has been” a great Yankee. Sick and tired of watching these wrong side of 35 year olds clog up a spots where a Montero could be producing, and playing with the big club. Dude is a DP waiting to happen. It’s been when your rooting for the guy to K instead of the inevitable DP with runners on.

  496. pkyankfan69 August 30th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Clearly… Cervelli>>Posada

  497. mick August 30th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    that’s why cervy’s in there…

  498. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

  499. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    That’s one back. Go Cervelli

  500. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Cervelli with a shot almost out of the park.

  501. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Good way to continue your mastery against Lackey, Cervelli!

  502. luis August 30th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Cervi!!!!, makes them pay!!!

  503. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Tar,

    I love Jorge for all he has given to the Yanks, but I hope tonight’s game shows Joe that he should no longer start in these “big” games. Even his good LH splits aren’t helping him tonight.

    BTW, Frankie!

  504. Benny Blanco August 30th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    what a shot!

  505. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    wow seems like Cervelli is always making some impact when he plays.

  507. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    They have wasted a roster spot on posada all year and Burnett the past month. Tough playing with 23.

  508. The Mercury Strikes Back August 30th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    The Red sox are just too good. They sure look like they can go 162-0 in a season.

  509. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Wow….that was crushed. Cervelli’s biggest fly ever?

    JF,

    that’s a nice article and probably accounts for some of the why he’s struggled…..but the how comes back to his swing and approach. He’s continuing to pound the ball into the shift and expecting a different outcome…..rather than fix the problem he’s just trying to hit more homers. It’s kinda like a golfer aiming left to account for their slice instead of actually fixing their slice by fixing their swing.

  510. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    .265 for Gardner.. He is really slumping.. almost bench time.. Can Nunez play LF?

  511. mick August 30th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    HAHAHAHAH CERVI!!!!

    Ace

    I’m not saying anybody has to cheer Jorge, but how about showing some class when talking about an all time Yankee great. All that other bull is what Red Sox fans do.

  514. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Gardner still hasn’t adjusted to major league pitchers. Next time he bats Long should make him swing at the 1st pitch. It’s always a fastball right down the middle because they know he won’t swing.

  515. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    love the first pitch swinging out love them!!!

  516. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    MG-

    If Alex can ever get healthy, I prefer Chavez at DH against rhp.

  517. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    .265 for Gardner.. He is really slumping.. almost bench time.. Can Nunez play LF?

    ___

    two more days they can bring up a Golson or Parraz or someone to play, plus there is Andruw Jones…

    Gardner is great when he is on.. He’s a pest, but right now he’s an auto-out and barely making solid contact.

  524. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    My bad – hard to distinguish with all the crying going on

  526. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Straw, I don’t disagree with you but Jorge hasn’t been that bad from the left side and has had a good August, those are the 1st DP’s of the month for him.

  527. luis August 30th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    blake,

    very good analogy, props

  528. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Now lets see what the Tex dud does.

  529. doubla06 August 30th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    We’re ready to bench Gardner again huh? Doesn’t matter how bad his slump at the plate gets, his defense evens it out. Putting anyone else out there for any extended stretch would be a poor, poor move.

  530. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Pitching around Granderson to throw off speed pitches to Tex

  531. Ed Whitson August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Tex is done.

  532. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

  534. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Tex you blow.. What’s up with the straight up pop outs lately..

  535. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Teixeira popped up. I am in shock!

  536. The Mercury Strikes Back August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    PeteAbe: Gonzo will get the game winning hit tonight.

  537. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    ah yes the first pitch pop out….
    a ‘tex’ if you will…

  538. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Tex is a bum.. first pitch ball .. he swings and pops up .. at least take a damn pitch.. GARBAGE!

  539. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Why would anyone ever pitch to Granderson when you could just get Tex to pop up off speed pitches? He is dreadful.

  540. pkyankfan69 August 30th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    OMG!!!! I did not see that pop up from Tex coming. SHOCKING!!! Esp considering it was the first pitch!!!

  541. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    That’s pretty much all Tex can do to the opposite field…..he can pull the ball and hit weak flyballs to LF

  542. stuart a August 30th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    what a shocker tex popped up on a off speed pitch. that never happens. the yanks hit tex a 250 hitter 3rd or 4th in the order, that is wrong.

    he has a 100 rbi’s because of the team he plays on not his performance……

  543. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    they won’t bench gardner, but maybe he could use a day off.
    jones will probably start in left vs. lester thursday anyway…

  544. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    i never boo yankees when I go to games, never ever have. but I will boo the bum Tex. I want him out of NY.

  545. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Mark could hit 190 next season and Jerkface and others would continue to mention is 30 plus homers and great defense

  548. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    what are the odds of CC producing a 1,2,3 inning….cause that would be soooo helpful

  549. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    Granderson doesn’t have any intentional walks but teams are pitching him differently…..they aren’t willing to give in to him anymore with Tex hitting behind him. I love Tex….and think he’s a good and productive player….but he’s not a 3 or 4 hitter from the left side.

  550. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    It seems like someone over Girardi’s head is making him play Posada. Their best lineup for tonight would of been Nunez at 3rd and DH Chavez or Jones in LF and DH Chavez. Posada has been absolutely awful but even if he was hitting you can’t sit someone for days at a time and then just throw them out there. Enough with automatic outs already for sentimental reasons.

  551. The Mercury Strikes Back August 30th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    We may see Cy Young candidate Aceves tonight.

    “Mark could hit 190 next season and Jerkface and others would continue to mention is 30 plus homers and great defense”

    those things have value….he’s already at 30/100 for the 8th year in a row. For me it’s more about where he is in the lineup….he should hit 6th vs RHP and they should get Cano up higher.

  555. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    The Yanks are going to miss Noesi tonight. CC isn’t going to pitch deep and the bullpen is very short.

  556. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    Truth hurts. And you started it.

  557. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    Typical pedroia 14 pitch at bat that will end in a wall double

  558. GreenBeret7 August 30th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    Sabathia with 200 strikeouts

  559. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    Thanks u for whiffing that little retarded a$$clown.

  560. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    Teixeira isn’t hitting well from the left side. I’d bat him 6th or 7th lefty as the Yankees have a number of superior lefty hitters. All your early season whining when Tex was actually doing well has paid off after his slump, congrats?

  561. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Ortiz doing what Tex should do. Another thing separating them. Bos a huge advantage at DH.

  562. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    Tex hits really well with men on base because teams are less likely to shift against him.

  563. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    Time to get out the latter part of the order

  564. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    guess its not going to be an easy inning for CC

  565. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    blake,

    25 million dollars of value? Did the Yankees sign him to hit 6th the majority of the time? They thought they were getting a 280-290 hitter not 240 and not someone he disappears in the playoffs. Mark gets basically no criticism other then a few posters here meanwhile Arod who put up way better numbers got booed every time he came to the plate

  566. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    Man, it is a struggle with CC lately..

  567. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    It stinks that CC can’t dominate their lefties, maybe he has to change his pitching patterns. He isn’t going to last that much longer in this game.

  568. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    Perhaps it’s time to get someone up in the pen….Wade or Ayala.

  569. 4 train August 30th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    loads of idiots for the paddy wagon. hey dudes do you guys ever go back and read some of the stupid things you post here. some embarassing stuff man. love a dude and then hate a dude and these are your dudes on your team man. no different than the boston fans man.

  570. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    FYI. This is y 6 starters is ridiculous. Pen short now.

  571. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    Not being able to keep a team honest when they shift against u is weak. Giambi couldn’t do it, now Tex can’t do it. Its weak.

  572. Ys Guy August 30th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    when the best hitters start earning votes for the cy young, the best pitcher should get votes for the mvp but not before.

  578. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    we are lucky that Ortiz can’t run very well

  579. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    This is pathetic…He can’t even get their garbage hitters out.

  580. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    CC just doesn’t have it tonight. Sure alot of K’s, but 9 hits and every time the Yanks give him a lead he wants to give it back. Ridiculous.

  581. luis August 30th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Ace,

    Ortiz doesnt have the uppercut swing that Tex does, thats why he pop ups so many balls

    Every game is the same against them. Literally same stuff every time. Lowries, saltalamachias, scutaros, reddicks, etc. All marginal players all doing constant damage. Our starter doesn’t get through 6, our offense fails miserably in spots where we can turn a tight game into a laugher. Identical games.

  584. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    On June 19th, Tex had 21 HRs and a .251 .365 .537 .901 line.

  585. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    @the straw. What’s tge record nyy vs bos?? That’s a huge separation.

  586. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

  596. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Tex has become a HR happy pull hitter. That’s not a #3 hitter. Especially with an obp of 340.

    Fear not, another sht player, salty, will deliver and tie the game.

  617. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    Will the BP be able to hold on to the lead to give CC a win tonight? I doubt he will be coming out for the next inning.

  618. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    The only folks happy with the production from tex are those who were so vehement they can’t relent now. He’s a 250 hitter with a 340 obp with power. The opportunity cost of havinf him: blocks montero, sacrificed gonzalez, blocks pujols. Better first baseman are plentiful.

  619. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    Ortiz has adjusted his approach at the plate and he goes to the opposite field. All that besides the extra juicing.

  625. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:24 pm

  627. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    the last I checked, the score was Yankees 4, Red Sox 2

    Am I watching the same game as the rest of you?

  628. mick August 30th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    don’t know what youre talking about Dude, do you?

  629. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    If anyone on this team is deserving of ridicule, it is Mark. Posada, not really, because of his past. Mark is just, well, not great

  630. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Um…isn’t the score 4-2 Yanks here, not the other way around?

  631. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    The only folks happy with the production from tex are those who were so vehement they can’t relent now. He’s a 250 hitter with a 340 obp with power. The opportunity cost of havinf him: blocks montero, sacrificed gonzalez, blocks pujols. Better first baseman are plentiful.

    They weren’t getting Gonzalez, they had Tex for 2 years before Gonzalez was even available. Who was going to be at 1st base? Swisher? How would 2009 have looked when they had no pitching staff, no 39 120 from Tex, and Swisher at 1st and AAA players in RF once Nady died?

  632. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    I wonder if Robertson is available tonight? If not they are really introuble.

  633. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    MG… Lol, same thought.

  634. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    Straw – I like being wrong.

  635. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    Po can’t bang into a DP at least..

  636. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    go to sleep jorge.. err

  637. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Posada should have retired in June

  638. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Wade or CC

  639. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Im sure Robertson and Rivera will be available. Joe knows the importance of winning this game with AJ going thursday.

  640. mick August 30th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    there is so much hype over these games and it is a holiday when they play but these games are basically meaningless esp if they win 1.

    also, our ace has to be able to beat these guys if we face them in the ALCS

  641. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    JF – 09 wouldn’t have looked so good. I’m not anti tex but I call it like I see he, he has disappointed me. Not the player I hoped we were getting.

  642. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    At least Posada only gave up one out that time. Of course it was only because there were already 2 outs.

    The frustrating thing about this Yankee team is, while they work the pitcher, they also take AB’s off where they are swinging early for easy outs.

  643. mick August 30th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    we need cc to gt thru the 6th unscathed, yes if robo is out we’re in trouble…cant rely on chavez and cervy to carry us

  644. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    Girardi knows he has to win this. He’ll empty the pen tonight. N pray for rain wed n thu

  645. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    I’m not anti tex but I call it like I see he, he has disappointed me. Not the player I hoped we were getting.

    He isn’t having a good season. Can only hope he makes an adjustment left handed.

  646. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    Short rope, please Joe.

  647. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    Straw, this blog will be unreadable the next time the Yankees are either tied or behind the Sox in any game for the rest of the season.

    It’s a loser’s mentality, but, hey, whatever floats their boats.

  648. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    Carlo, Texeira is just a more productive Giambi. Home run or bust.

  649. fantasygame101 August 30th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    posada in this game is hitting backward, need sac fly, hit grnd ball. Do not need sac fly, hit fly ball.

  650. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    shocked he brought him out for the 6th

  651. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    Girardi better take out CC at the 1st sign out trouble. They have blown games against the Sox the last 2 years because he leaves CC out there too long.

  652. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    Giambi had more patience

  653. RhapsodyInBlue August 30th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Pray for rain my tush we’re here to conquer.

    Fenway is a dump.

  654. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Man dude, your righteous posts are so cool, but way transparent mr dude, so how about you take a chill pill. Do you know now Dude?

  655. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    He isn’t having a good season. Can only hope he makes an adjustment left handed.

    He didn’t have a good season last year either

  656. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Darnell mcdonala, aka vroom vroom party starter. Yet another 8 pitch at bat to start an inning.

  657. Niblick August 30th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    CC: 55 hits in 41 IP in August. What’s wrong with him?

  658. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    This is a lineup without their best hitter too. N grinding our ace out of game

  659. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    The Sox get every call in their ballpark. CC can’t walk garbage like this guy…

  660. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    Nice play.

  661. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    He didn’t have a good season last year either

    Was that in debate? He was very banged up last year though.

  662. Vineyard Yankee August 30th, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    Hey Mick:

    How goes the blog tonite ? (Save me the trouble of scrolling the last 4 innings)

  665. Ys Guy August 30th, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    laughing uproariously at you idiots. i used to come here years ago and enjoy discussing the game with fellow yankees fans. now there are barely any yankees fans here, just a bunch of morons who cant even be happy when their team is doing well.

    just confirms the decision i made over 2 years ago to not waste my gametime on this blog. too bad, it used to be good before all you a holes started showing up.

    apologies to the 2 yankees fans who still come here for some crazy reason.

  666. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    Chavez is money with the leather.

  667. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    Bye bye CC. I blame that rain game vs Sea for this funk. He hasn’t been the same

  668. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    That was a strike

  669. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    I would take him out now….

  670. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    CC stays in to hold Ellsbury at 1st, but stuck with Scutaro who has owned him tonight and in the past.

  671. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Please retire Mark Scooter

  672. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    @y’s guy. Yet u come here n post daily. Weird

  673. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    They don’t need CC throwing 130 pitches. Girardi is extending him too much here…

  674. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Boston is due for one of their infield singles that starts a huge inning.

  675. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    He’s staying in to face Gon.

  676. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    It doesn’t help that Rapuano’s strike zone is the size of a pin cushion.

  680. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    “25 million dollars of value? ”

    I think we sometimes get caught up in what players are paid and lose sight of what the player still does well. No, the Yankees didn’t expect to get a .240 hitter when they signed Teixera…..but that doesn’t mean he’s a bum. He’s still productive on both sides of the ball…..and just because maybe he’s not a cornerstone hitter…he’s still pretty good.

  681. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    Velocity still there at 124 pitches Go get him CC

  682. The Mercury Strikes Back August 30th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

  684. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    One of Pete A’s most accurate statements. “this place is like crack” :D

  685. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Get Gonzo and call it a night big fella…..hard fought night for Sabathia, he’s clawed tooth and nail in this one

  686. igotid88 August 30th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I’m guessing DRob is not available for today? Neither is Mo? Since they pitched 2 days in a row?

  687. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Tex is not a bum, anyone who calls him a bum is ridiculous.

  688. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    CC’s arm is going to fall off

  689. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    Pitch # 127?? (thud)

  690. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    nice that Boston got 2 days off in a row before this series….and that their pen is 100% rested

  691. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    C!!!!!!!

  692. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    Good job CC.

  693. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    lotta pitches for CC, guess even though it was a struggle he survived.

  694. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    127 pitches? really? Does even Girardi know this has to be his last batter?

  695. Ys Guy August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    im rooting for the yankees, not tearing them up. but you aholes just go on wallowing in your misery ill go join my friendly yankees fans elsewhere. just too bad what you people did here.
    adios see you at the championship parade.

    yeah…cc really sucks… get a grip.

  696. Nilsson August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    Sox lineup and home ump made CC work for it tonight. Good job overall.

  697. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    Not an ace, my a–.

  698. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    CC has done a great job considering.

  699. mick August 30th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    i called cc in 6 but…if robo is out he might throw him 1 more then soriano

  700. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    man….he got through 6 with a lead…..wasn’t easy but he made the pitches when he had to. His arm isn’t going to fall off…..he’s been in a 6 man rotation for weeks pitching on extra rest.

  701. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    I said in the 2nd inning it would take at least 5 runs to win this game. The 4 we have no aint gonna cut it.

  702. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    so 4-2 CC over Lackey in the 6 innings that the starters go….now it is a 3 inning battle of the bullpens, YIKES !

  703. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    That was a grind. Imagine Hughes n aj next 2. Wow

  704. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    Need…..more…..runs….!!

  705. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    Rivera threw about ten pitches last night. He’s available.

    sure sounds like a friendly yankee fan too me. Good luck, enjoy yourself wherever you go. I promise you won’t be missed in the slightest. Did I say good luck Mr. Friendly?

  707. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    Way to go and keep Ellsbury at 1st.

    Now get some more runs and hand it to So and DRob and if necessary Mo

  708. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    I say 6 runs wins this.

  709. fantasygame101 August 30th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    time to put the game away for good.

  710. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    Here is my take on tonight’s game:

    The Sox did a great job against CC, you have to give them credit for that.

    CC toughed it out and gave them 6 innings of 2 run ball on a night where the Sox probably would have scored double digits against a lesser pitcher. If anything he was too strong tonight, he needs to start going on 4 days rest.

    Many of you won’t get that but it’s directed at the ones who do, they understand my point.

  711. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    PeteAbe: Gonzo will get the game winning hit tonight….so much for that jackwagon’s assertion that he is only a reporter and roots for NO TEAM…..Mr. Dough Boy Ice Hole !

  712. RhapsodyInBlue August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    Big game in half stadium for CC.

  713. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    #$%@ you, Lackey!

  714. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    CC was really pretty good tonight….you have to give Boston credit….they are a tough lineup when they dig in.

    Imagine that….Lackey hits Cervelli. Who would have guessed…..punk

  715. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    there better be no warning before we can retaliate.

  716. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    What is wrong with what Cervelli did? What about when Ortiz showed us up in Yankee Stadium?

  717. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    C is ready to brawl.

  718. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    CC is pissed he’s out of the game now

  719. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    charge the f’n mound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so sick of this crap and why wasn’t he thrown out of the game. and Once again the Yankee announcers blame the Yankees. F’n amazing

  720. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    how was that hand clap at the RedSOx catcher…get over it. Please tell me how Lackey does not get tossed immediately…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Total BS

  721. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    love CC looking for blood !!!

  722. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    let cc start the 7th and hit their first batter since he is done anyway…

  723. RhapsodyInBlue August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    PeteAbe will get the last pork chop tonight.

  724. Ace August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    I’ll take a free base runner.

  725. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    We shouldn’t be surprised with the dirty Sox….

  726. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Another gutless beaning by a BoSux Punk Pitcher….I bet both benches were warned so we get no payback, right?

  727. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Our own commentators are going against our team. Ken, Alois, and Kay are losers

  728. seconds August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Hopefully this many pitches for CC, doesn’t make the Yanks think they need to give CC an extra day, thus continuing with the 6man.

  729. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Lackey should be tossed.

  730. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    CC dug in and left with the lead still intact. It wasn’t pretty, but I think he did a really nice job of digging in and gutting it out.

    Let’s go, bullpen!

    And some more runs would be just dandy, btw, offense.

  731. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    And of course a yankee gets thrown out in all of this.

  732. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Girardi needs to get thrown out once in a while!

  733. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    There will be retribution for this at some point in the next three days.

  734. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    That’s on purpose…..right in the middle of the back right after a HR. Pretty obvious.

  735. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Who got thrown out?

  736. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Of course Lackey “I can’t keep my teeth in my mouth” isn’t thrown out of the game

  737. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    lol@Joe Girardi pretending he is upset. Go have a veggie burger Joe you idiot.

    How come Yankee pitchers never throw at a player until after they’ve been thrown at first.. wimps.

  738. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Please tell me how Lackey doesn’t get thrown out?

  739. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    are you kidding? who got thrown out?

  740. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    BULL**** and at the end of this a Yankee player gets thrown out….everyone in the freaking stadium knows that Cervelli was hit on purpose how does the umpire not throw Lackey out the game. Lackey should have been immediately tossed. Unfreaking believable

  741. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    how do you throw a pitching coach out when his back is to the 3rd base ump..

  742. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    I hope the Yanks score this run after that

  743. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    After reading Y’s guy post I can’t find much fault with it.

    I do think almost everybody here is/are Yankee fans. But some of you have a very weird way of showing it.

    I hope you stick around Y.

  744. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    back in the old days, when Frank Robinson or Reggie got plunked or knocked down, they came back and took it out on the other team by hitting it out of the park.

    It’s time for the Yankees to put up enough runs to make the game safe for the ‘pen.

  745. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    And there goes Lackey, douching it up once again.

  746. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    How I wish Strawberry was still on this team

  747. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    They waited until CC and his 96 mph fastball was done for the night

  748. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    aha the pitching coach….we are so screwed now ! LOL ;-)

  749. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    Walk-double steal, single

  750. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    When Ortiz celebrates, our commentators laud him and say he is an emotional player. Cervelli does it, our own guy, and our jerk commentators go against him. Shut up Ken. You are an Oriole and always have been

  751. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    They have to take advantage of this situation

  752. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    holy cow I just saw BG bunt for a hit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  753. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    haha and Grady get a base hit…F the RedSox

  754. luis August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    Somebody has to be beaned again, Gardner!!!! thats a bunt

  755. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    Singleton is an absolute joke. Does this guy ever defend the Yankees in any way shape or form?

  756. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    knew it was coming and still couldnt stop it….
    thats what gardner needs to do more of…

  757. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    I even invoked the Gritner nickname. I was desperate, but it worked.

  758. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    Nice Brett

  759. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    Just don’t let jeter swing at the first pitch please

  760. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Great bunt….but why was he bunting 3-0. It worked out so I’ll take it.

  761. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Its possible burnett will hit lackey with a wild pitch on thursday.

  762. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Blake-

    If AJ decides to pitch inside on Thursday he’ll pop a few RS hitters before getting tossed!!

  763. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Whats the difference between hand clapping your 2nd HR all year, or any slugger or player clapping their hands and then praising God or forearm bashing the guy on the on-deck circle or high fiving anyone who scored with them?

    Lackey is a dick.

  764. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    wow Jeter took a pitch try another one Jeter, Lackey has thrown 4 balls out of 5 pitches make him work

  765. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    still doesn’t see how the clap was showing up the RedSox….if that was the intent Cervelli would have looked at Lackey or the catcher when he was doing it. If anyone knows Cervelli they know he does stuff like that all the time…he’s an active/emotionally player. He was showing anyone up. Ridiculous.

  766. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    If a Yankees pitcher did what Lackey just did you can guarantee he would of been thrown out of the game

  767. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    No Triple. Ken does not, because he is an Oriole. But everyone on here likes him. Lets get 6 runs in this inning so then we can retaliate tonight

  768. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    “Its possible burnett will hit lackey with a wild pitch on thursday.”

    :D

  769. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Really prefer to just let gardy steal 2nd while jeter takes here.

  770. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    of course he swings.. jesus christ what’s his IQ 5?

  771. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    I NEVER listen to the supposed Yankees announcers, they are all jack@$$e$ and couldn’t be more anti-Yankees if they tried. Screw them and their supposedly objective opinions. I would rather listen to my kids bicker than subject myself to their blathering about a Yankees game!

  772. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Its possible burnett will hit lackey with a wild pitch on thursday.

    That’ll take some doing unless Lackey happens to be walking by while Burnett is warming up!!LOL

    ________________

    I agree. I bet if the Yanks retaliate this game or next inning the Yanks pitcher will get thrown out. But no not the RedSox

  776. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    Come on Jeter!!!

  777. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    No excuses, if they don’t blow the game open here they don’t deserve to win.

  778. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    wow.. just wow.

  780. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    How’s that HBP working for you, Lackey? You sure showed him!

  781. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    Hear, hear Don Vito.

  782. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

  783. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    The Yankees won’t retaliate.

    I was hoping Cervelli would have said something when he crossed home plate

  784. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    ugh, another rally killer.

  785. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    These DP’s are killing big innings

  786. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    At least we scored a run…

  787. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    Tar, does that stand for Re-TAR-d … seems like it fits.

  788. hardwired7 August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    Lackey, about as smart as he is good-looking.

    Thanks for the gift run, Fishface.

  789. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    why is Gardy not going….seriously what are the odds of Jeter swinging and missing and even if he does Gardy could prolly get in safe. There should never be a DP with Gardy on 1st base.

  790. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    Its simply amazing. The core 2 is mastering the art of the big inning baloon popping tonight.

  791. P August 30th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    awww Tar, need a tissue?

  792. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    ugh….not the best way to get that run home. That’s slider Jeter fouled off had a hit me sign attached to it.

  793. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    I knew it….what a joke Jeter has been tonight 4 ground outs with a GIDP to top off what may be his last AB….Captain Clutch, right ? NOT !!!!

  794. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    The idea is to get hits, not work the count

    Well one of these is helped by doing the other. Thats one of the reasons I don’t like Gardner-Jeter in the lineup, it has bad synergy because Derek is so aggressive. Gardner had 2nd stolen three times but Jeter fouled it off. Unfortunately there isn’t really a great way to flip them so they’ll just continue to live with that pairing.

  795. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    ———————
    don’t confuse the kid, he’s allegedly like 15 or 16, he can’t understand the hit and run was on for that pitch and Jeter took the next one because he thought Gardner was going to steal 2nd.

  796. luis August 30th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    Lackey is an a…hole, i thought i couldn’t dislike someone as much as i dislike Beckett….i was wrong.

  797. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    Cervelli should clapped again when he crossed home. Because god forbid that a Yankee player clap when crossing home because that is “showing up” the RedSox

  798. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    Of course some of you will complain even though they increased the lead there.

  799. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    nesn showing when cc hit ortiz, and thinks its because they never hit him, instead of reminding us it was retaliation for 3 HBPs by Beckett earlier that game.

    working the count — AKA — have a good at bat, but right let’s fall right into a 1-2 count when a pitcher throws 4 balls straight balls.. do yourself a favor.. start following soccer.

  802. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    Well at least Lackey’s HBP tantrum cost him a run.

    You’re not that bright of a baseball fan, I’ve read your posts for over a year.

  808. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    No Tar. The idea is to not make outs. If you draw walks, you cannot commit an out. Work the count, draw walks.

  809. Yankee Trader August 30th, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    Where’s Soriano? next inning and no DRob tonight?

    seriously, it’s quite comical. Trust me, when I am your age I will think of you guys and laugh– well maybe not think of you — but I do recognize the sad existence of most of you already.

  811. blake August 30th, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    did Lackey even get warned?…..I mean it was so obvious that that was intentional

  812. MG August 30th, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    it looks like Robertson isn’t pitching tonight or Soriano would be in here…

  813. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    Cervelli is one of the few Yankees that is feisty. From day one, thats what I liked about him. Hes the kinda guy that wears his heart on his sleeve and Im sure the Sox hate him, and he sure appears to hate the Red Sox. Or any opponent for that matter. And I have to say, its alot better attitude to see on the field, then Jeter tapping Sox guys on the butt or any Yankee pitcher than doesnt throw at opposing players after the Yanks get plunked time and time again. Most of the Yankees need to learn some swagger and fight from the Cisco Kid. Amen.

    If the game gets out of reach I GUARANTEE another Yankee gets plunked for Boone’s fist pump. And if it does not happen tonight, it will for sure happen with an early batter tomorrow.

  947. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    and there is idiot Kay to mention their fake sellouts streak. They sell a percentage of their tickets to a 3rd party dealer. So the games are technically sold out because the 3d party dealer buys many of the tickets. Very few games are actually sold out, especially late in 2010 when the Red Sox were done

    you just know there’s going to be a huge play @ 3rd in the next two innings and do you really trust Nunez in that situation? Over managing at it’s finest tonight

  1022. doubla06 August 30th, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    Red Sox pitchers have hit 15 Yankees this year. No other team has hit more than 12 batters of any other team. In other news, this chat is getting way out of hand.

  1023. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    so the teams are warned, Posada is hit by a pitch and NOTHING ? What the hell is the point of the warning ???

    Vineyard Yankee easy calling names with a keyboard that is spineless when you hide behind a keyboard and make the most stupid noob comments ever

    I hate Singleton so much.

    Are you watching the game on tv or on gameday?
    He was not plunked, it grazed him…
    they arent tossing someone for that.

    No chance

  1029. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    So if a Yankee pitches inside to a BoSux and misses him, but the ump thinks he was throwing at him, you don’t think our pitcher will get tossed?

    Don, no i dont think so.
    I’m pretty certain it would have to actually be intentional, not just inside, maybe near the head or behind him.
    I know what you mean though.

  1036. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    Don Vito A. Bellamo,

    Joba got thrown out for not hitting Youkolis and of course the Yankee announcers blasted him

    Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Mark’s late and close stats are abysmal as well
    ——————

    absolutely horrible. We might as well have just renewed Giambi’s contract. Well, we do get Tex’s great D.

    It’s crazy that we are a day away from September and he is still batting 3rd. If George was alive, I wonder how many times he would have ripped Girardi apart by now.. or fired him.

  1038. mick August 30th, 2011 at 10:42 pm

  1045. P August 30th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    Carlo,

    the guy is just looking to stir the hornets nest. It’s pretty obvious that the first letter of his name should begin with a D instead of an M.

    Just ignore him and his immaturity.

  1046. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Throw strikes!!!!

  1047. sdjohn August 30th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Hey Singleton ya know what’s “too much” is your dumbass stories about when you played for the O’s. We all know you were a switch hitter, we all know you hit 3rd in the lineup at one point, and that you hit leadoff for a bit. We all know your manager was Earl Weaver, and that he was an in your face kinda manager. Do you know how we know Ken? Cuz you tell us at lest 6 or 7 times EVERY damn broadcast, that’s how…

  1048. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Yogi Mantle,

    so now clapping your hands when you cross home plate is showing off?

  1049. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    Mick

    You are not a kid. Just an adult that acts like one.

    And Dude you are so transparent. I have been getting on WCYF for multiples, But now I think you have him beat. Ride the 4 train Mick.

  1050. JM August 30th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    Papelbon has been fist-pumping and screeching for years. What’s the big deal now that Cisco was a bit over exuberant?

    Nice start Soriano you bum

  1052. doubla06 August 30th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Rafael Soriano wants me to hate him.

  1053. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Leadoff walk. Very yankees with a lead late in fenwayesque

  1054. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Soriano not the way to start the inning vs the RedSox….you better not give up any runs.

  1055. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Cmon Sori….

  1056. JobaTipsHisCap August 30th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Lead off walk, sigh.

  1057. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Sox due for infield single and or lucky bad hop.

  1058. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Can these pitchers ever pitch a 1,2,3 inning against this team?

  1059. sdjohn August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    we refuse to make this easy..

  1060. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    we all remember Soriano’s meltdown last week.

  1061. WyoYankee August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Soriano-what a head case

  1062. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    He ain’t got it tonight…

  1063. GoldGlove9486 August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Yankee pitchers are afraid of everyone. Just picking the outside corner. This is sickening.

  1064. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    It is amazing how little these broadcasters know about baseball. Alois is concerned with the runner on 1st when the team is up 3 runs with 2 innings. Total focus should be on the batter and recording outs and if one run scores, you hand a 2 run lead to Mo.

  1065. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    I’m going back to my lucky chair. Soriano might need the help!

  1066. doubla06 August 30th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    I know different guys have different demeanors on the mound, but Soriano genuinely looks like he could not care less what happens.

  1067. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Phew Gardner…

  1068. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Brett saves game for the moment.

  1080. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Great play by Gardner. Girardi might have to get Ayala up, Soriano doesn’t look good at all.

  1081. Bring in the Goose August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    This game is so far from over.

  1082. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Listen to Singleton, what a shmuck. Crawford is not a good outfielder, and certainly does not compare to the highest rated outfielder this year, Gardner

  1083. Nilsson August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Can’t say enough how big a putout that is by Gardner.

  1084. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Great catch.

  1085. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Man did Gardner just save Soriano from a whole lot of grief. Temporarily perhaps.

  1086. luis August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Gardner!!! what a catch!!!, hope it gives Soriano a little solace so he can get through this inning unscathed

  1087. Bronx Jeers August 30th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    I’m adding about .8 WAR to my charts for that play alone. :wink:

    Gardner is a better left fielder than Crawford is.

    Why even appeal a check swing against a Sox in Boston???

  1090. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    looked like a strike and a committment to swing…

    Okay. They’re noisy outs. But they’re outs. One more, Sori.

  1097. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

  1100. sdjohn August 30th, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    Better chance of happening? A check swing appeal being called a strike in Boston vs. a Red Sox Player? or Rosie O’Donnell not being a fat pig the rest of her life?

    Well that was a quick half inning.. Come on Mo!!!

  1130. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    The Burnett start Thursday could be epic. I remember when he was a respectable pitcher and I went up to fenway and watched him blow a 6-0 lead vs beckett in the first 3 innings. He may give up 12-15 runs thursday.

    Like how Kay is hazing their fans for peacing out.

  1131. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

  1138. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    What a play by Bret the jet in that 8th inning….may have kept a rally from getting started. Really didn’t like hitting Nunez for Chavez for the reasons already mentioned…..Girardi has trouble anticipating the opposing managers moves sometimes.

  1139. Tar August 30th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    OK somebody tell me why it’s important to take pitches in the 9th inning, with the lead, and nobody on?

  1145. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Why is it always so easy for the Sox to get the Yankees lineup out and the Yankees have to sweat in every inning against them? The Yanks need to be more patient.

  1146. BA August 30th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Good points, I was living in the moment… AJ > Soriano on the dislike meter

  1158. sdjohn August 30th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Tar, If you’ve ever seen a Sox vs. Yankee game, 3 run lead in the 9th, ain’t much. You should NEVER be out of an inning after 4 pitches. Extend the lead, tack on.

  1159. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Tar, to try and tack on runs. The objective of baseball is to win. Scoring as many runs as possible increases the likelihood of winning

    Ok back to the lucky chair. Come on Mo.

  1161. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    I really can’t stand Ortiz….I hope the Sox refuse to pay him this winter and he goes off and signs a 3 year deal with the A’s or something.

  1162. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Leiter calling out shtty cutters

  1163. P August 30th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    why am I biting my nails?

  1164. m August 30th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Feels like we’re losing 10-3. We’ll be really lucky if we pull this out.

  1165. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Sit your ass down Jed

  1166. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    sit down and shut up Lowry…nobody cares

  1167. WyoYankee August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    This would be the worst loss in a long time.

  1168. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Thanks, Ed.

  1169. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    This wouldn’t be a Sox game without one of them crying about a call

  1170. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    ha, good time for ump to expand the zone…..

  1171. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Generous strike call there…..but we’ll take it. That’s the HOFer extra inch

  1172. MG August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    P August 30th, 2011 at 11:01 pm
    Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    nice 1st pitch swinging by 2 maroons….o for 5 Jeter…FANTASTIC !
    ——————————————

    you’d think with all the years played he’d figure out that he’s batting under .100 when he swings at the first pitch…
    —————
    you really have no clue. Jeter is batting .368 this year and .380 in his career when he puts the 1st pitch in play.

    That’s just a little higher than .100 unless there is a new version of mathematics being taught today.

  1173. Nilsson August 30th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    This ump’s k-zone has been crappy all night. Just roll with it, Lowrie.

  1174. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Poor Lowrie. Mo got the benefit of the doubt a couple of times. Too bad they haven’t done that tonight with the RS pitching staff.

    Oh, wait.

  1175. 38HotDogs August 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Future 1st ballot Hall Of Famer can’t believe the ump had the audacity to call 2 strikes on him = how dare he!

  1176. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Red Sox are always complaining to the ump….a holes

  1177. m August 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    He owes us a lot more gift calls.

  1178. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Mariano knows the cutter isn’t working.

  1179. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Mo is taking what they are giving him.

  1180. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    they arent strikes, but i cannot take announcers whining about it after watching the other team get squeezed all night and saying nothing about it.

  1181. m August 30th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    Why aren’t the Sox pinch running for Fatease?

  1182. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    Mo has found his groove. One more now!

  1183. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    Noonie….get away from that popup!

  1184. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    CC got squeezed big time all night. Cutter worked just fine on that one…..sawdust

  1185. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Glad jeter was paying attention, wasn’t sure if he was still playing grab a$$ with ortiz or not.

  1186. P August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Let’s go Mo!!!!!! Get ‘er dun!

  1187. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    TIME TO CLOSE THE DOOR ON THESE DIRT BAGS !!!

  1188. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    The common belief amongst baseball fans is that the Yankees argue every call. Am I right when say the Yankees barely argue calls?

  1189. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    One Mo!

  1190. P August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    he swung !!!

  1191. sdjohn August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Anyone else think Nunez was gonna crash into Jeter there?

  1192. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    “Why aren’t the Sox pinch running for Fatease?”

    because his run means nothing….it’ll take more than one hit for them to win anyway and if they tied it they’d rather have his bat still in the lineup.

  1193. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    That one cut nicely. Got the bat too fkface so get back in the box with ur limp wrist.

  1194. kcd August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    m, because that runner doesnt mean anything.

    Saltala swung at that pitch

  1195. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    that was a swing no?
    he cannot take first base…

  1196. doubla06 August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    He swung.

  1197. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    BS call

  1198. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    He definitely swung. You have to be kidding me…..

  1199. P August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    it took Joe this long to get thrown out

  1200. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    they better not give him first base. Bull**** are you kidding me. He def swung. Wow this is the worse biased game I have ever seen.

  1201. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    Dam ump

  1202. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    Bullish-t call there!

  1203. MG August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    I absolutely hate Cervelli behind home plate, he shouldn’t be jumping in the air as Mo is in his delivery-just put the glove where you want it, Mo doesn’t need any help.

  1204. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    He swung….good to see Girardi flip out for once.

  1205. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    How is that not a swing.????

  1206. sdjohn August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    of course…

  1207. Wang IS Taiwan August 30th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    What’s with the umps on that call?

  1208. Jerkface August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    The only reason he got hit is because he swung like a doofus

  1209. 38HotDogs August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Another check swing not called by the third base ump

  1210. m August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Okay, I get it.

    But I’d get the run now and worry about extra innings later.

  1211. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    WOW on the replay its SO obvious what are these umps doing.

  1212. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    I hope he broke his wrist……why u ask? Because I don’t give a sht about him. Fk em.

  1213. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Horrible horrible call.

  1214. P August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    where does MLB get the umps?

  1215. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    MO is gonna get tossed now, right ?

  1216. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    he did swing…

  1217. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    wow yet another bad call against the yankees at fenway….. shocker.
    umps keep getting worse every year and mlb does NOTHING

  1218. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Clearly a swing on the replays.. Should be 2 strikes on him!

  1219. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Russia vs US in Olympic basketball

  1220. luis August 30th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    he swung, so he shouldn’t be on first base!!, this play could really impact the game, damn!!!

  1221. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    It’s unreal how the Sox get every single call. In 10 years we will hear how much they paid every umpiring crew. It’s a little too obvious at this point.

  1222. sdjohn August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Anything inner half here, should be second guessed…

  1223. P August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    joe won’t contest the game either :)

  1224. Salliedogs7 August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Ball game over. Theee Yankees win!!! Theee Yankees win!!!

  1225. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    MG,

    I agree. Montero should catch CC :)

  1226. TheStraw August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Good win.

  1227. yankeefeminista August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Woo hoo!!!!!!!!

  1228. Triple Short of a Cycle August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    YES!!!! FU Red Sox

  1229. Tarheel In NYC August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    HA! :)

  1230. NYY fan in NH August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Worst umpiring for a big series as i have seen.. Nice catch Gardy!!! Yankees win!!!!!

  1231. ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Yankees beat the Sox AND the third base umpire!

  1232. blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    YAY! it wasn’t pretty but it’s a W

  1233. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    god these game makes me hate the RedSox more…ridiculous. Anyways glad the Yanks won despite all the craziness in this game.

  1234. West Coast Yankee Fan August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Wow what a game!

    Go straight to hell Sux!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1235. Yogi Mantle August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Real BS call by the umpire. , despite the umpires best efforts of trying to give the game to the Sux, the Sux came up short.

  1236. P August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    wow MO really did not look that good tonight at all.. but he got the save and CC got the W over teh redsox finally ! And as usual Tex did not get a hit.

  1237. Don Vito A. Bellamo August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    SCREW the Red Sox and Screw the UMPS too….GAME OVER, ICEHOLES ! :-)

  1238. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Eff the umps, and the crybaby pussssy Sox…

  1239. Carlo August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    U can put that one on the left side or ur can ram it down ortiz throat, whatever u like. Split the next two is all we need. Hey, maybe rodriguez will play again sometime this year.

  1240. Bret The Hitman August 30th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Holla.

  1241. syd_cash August 30th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    ac1 August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm
    Yankees beat the Sox AND the third base umpire!
    ____

    yup :D

  1242. Wang IS Taiwan August 30th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    We beat Lackey. We’re supposed to beat him. I want to see Beckett and Lester beaten!

  1243. Captain Clutch August 30th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Good thing this is a kiddie park otherwise that could of fell in. Good job by Mo considering his cutter wasn’t cutting.

  1244. 38HotDogs August 30th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    That third base ump needs to be reviewed for his performance tonight – thank god he won’t be behind the plate this series

  1245. MG August 30th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    blake August 30th, 2011 at 11:11 pm
    MG,

    I agree. Montero should catch CC
    ————-
    I know Cervelli went yard tonight but I just hate the way he catches a game, just put the glove down and receive the ball and let the umpire call the pitch. All this moving does is take strike calls away from the pitcher.

  1246. JM August 30th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    BIG BIG WIN!

  1247. luis August 30th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    game oveer !!!!

  1248. scuzzles August 30th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    CC + some fight tonite = a win. Great to see some Yankee toughness tonite. They’ve been rolling over to the Sox all friggin year. Until tonite.

  1249. Betsy August 30th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    Whew…………

    And that was “supposed” to be the easy game

  1250. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    Like I said, watching this game reminds me of how the refs screwed the US vs the Russians in the Olympic basketball game.

  1251. doubla06 August 30th, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    That 3rd base ump Wegner wants to be the star of the show, like Joe West and others. He made an ass of himself tonight.

  1252. 38HotDogs August 30th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Everytime the Yankees appealed a check swing at third, you could visualize Sweet Caroline being hummed in that moron’s head as he gave the safe sign.

  1253. DocTodd August 30th, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    I want to see Montero in the lineup as DH this Thursday, smacking balls off of the green montsta and Lesta.

  1254. beedogs August 30th, 2011 at 11:32 pm

    “I agree. Montero should catch CC”

    People say some really wacked-out things on this board, but this has got to be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen. Now is NOT the time to try something like this.

  1255. matzcrorkz August 6th, 2014 at 5:11 pm
