Verlander vs. Yankees

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

WEATHER: Mainly clear skies, but cold and windy. Tonight’s low is 37 with temps hovering in the low 40s for the game. Winds will blow 15-25 mph.

UMPIRES: HP Joe West, 1B Andy Fletcher, 2B Rob Drake, 3B Cory Blaser

GRANDY MAN CAN: Curtis Granderson has reached bases safely in each of his last 17 games after going hitless (and walkless) on Opening Day.

GETTING MO’ FROM MO: Mariano Rivera has retired 16 of the last 18 batters he’s faced with six strikeouts and no walks. He has four saves in four tries over six appearances, all since blowing the save in the season opener at Tampa Bay.

OH CAPTAIN YOUR CAPTAIN: Derek Jeter continued his hitting streak on Wednesday, extending it to 15 games. He’s batting .456 since my birthday (4/9) with four homers, 13 RBI, six doubles, three walks and 14 runs scored. He’ll try to match his longest hitting streak since 5/17-6/2 of 2009, when the shortstop hit safely in 16 straight. Already, Jeter has hit safely in 17 of 18 games in 2012, including a club record 34 hits through 18 games.

ON TWITTER…: This is Josh in for Chad tonight. I’ll post some updates here, but follow along for more on Twitter @LoHudYankees (if you’re not already).

UPDATE, 7:28 p.m.: As Girardi said in the pregame, you have to get Verlander early. His fastball was only 90 to start the game. Granderson turned one pitch around for a double, and A-Rod placed one over the outstretched arm of Fielder. 1-0 Yanks.

Their only regret may be not getting more. We shall see.

UPDATE, 8:04 p.m.: The Tigers lead 3-1 midway through the third thanks to four straight singles off Nova. None of them were hit all that hard, but the Tigers took exactly what Nova gave them. He throws ground balls and that’s basically where they hit them. Even the powerful Cabrera and Fielder practiced patience, each placing a soft single to drive in the runs.

Nova has already allowed seven baserunners through three innings. His win-streak is in jeopardy here against Verlander.

UPDATE, 8:51 p.m.: Verlander had not allowed a home run all season. Now he’s allowed two. Martin’s two-run blast gives the Yankees a 4-3 lead.

Once again, an imperfect Nova is in position to keep his win streak going.

UPDATE, 9:16 p.m.: That was a big out recorded by Cory Wade to end the sixth. It meant the Yankees have at least some chance here. Still, the story is that the Yanks continue to get poor starting pitching. Nova has been terrific this year, but he has allowed too many baserunners. Tonight, he just couldn’t dance out of every jam.

Nova’s final line: 5.1 IP, 11 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 5 K. No pitcher will survive 14 baserunners in a little over five innings, and now his streak of 15 straight winning decisions is in serious jeopardy.

UPDATE, 9:50 p.m.: There’s Manny being Manny. And Joe West being Joe West.

West got himself on TV tonight. He just tossed Girardi after Girardi came out to argue and kicked a little dirt around home plate. It was presumably about a called third strike on Martin.

That’s 18 career ejections for Girardi, 15 as a manager. He’s been tossed 14 times as a Yankee now — 13 as manager and once as a player.

The Yankees still trail by a run, but they continue to have success here against Verlander. In five starts, he’s now 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA, allowing 12 ER in 24 IP. (Obviously, this decision is still pending and he’s in line for the win.)

UPDATE, 10:12 p.m.: Fans, you should start calling him Ivan Drago. Nova simply can’t lose. He’s off the hook again, as Teixeira’s sac fly ties the game 6-6. Verlander remains winless in this park.

    Still no home game for Chad.

    Fess up Chad, you got banned from the Stadium, didn’t you? ;)

  2. tomingeorgia April 27th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Nick,
    It depends on how fresh the cat was.

  3. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Joe West. Oh flippin’ goody.

  4. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Joe West where was that first pitch of the AB

  5. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    austin jackson is fast.

  6. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    and out.

  7. jacksquat April 27th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    He was actually out, but it was extremely close.

  8. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Jeter has been tagging base stealers up the line quite a bit and it hasn’t been leading to outs.

  9. Benny Blanco April 27th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    he was out!!!!!!

  10. jackamir April 27th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Looks like a light turnout or a late arriving crowd. Brisk night in the Boogie-down……

  11. Benny Blanco April 27th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    nova k ane

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Tigers record in the last 7 games. Proof that decent offenses can indeed slump.

  13. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Could have gone either way, never saw definitive look on the tag.

    I’m buying din din if Nova wins tonight.

  15. Benny Blanco April 27th, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    great inning from nova

  16. versonine April 27th, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Hey Trish!

    4 NYY, he was 100% out.

  17. versonine April 27th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Hughes could learn a thing or a million from Nova. Well done Ivan.

  18. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Hey Trish!

    4 NYY, he was 100% out.

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

    I’ve got MLB, never saw the “good” look, did you ?

  19. Against All Odds April 27th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    What I dislike most about Verlander is he plays for the wrong team

  20. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    RIP the “real” Moose ! Outstanding player was he.

  21. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Wish everyone would hustle like Jeter.

  22. versonine April 27th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Yes, they showed definitive replay on YES.

  23. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    And Grandy

  24. jackamir April 27th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    I think Chad has a part-time job waiting tables in a Tribeca hotspot…..

  25. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    versonine April 27th, 2012 at 7:22 pm
    Yes, they showed definitive replay on YES.

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

    I thought he was, just couldn’t be sure, thanks.

  26. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    What’s not to like with Grandy ?

  27. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Nova going right after Miggy and Prince with the base open in the top half. No Fear there.

    Come on Alex we need you to contribute a little bit

  28. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Surprise !

  29. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Nice that’s what they HAVE to do. Score when you get a chance with RISP. Probably won’t be often.

  30. tomingeorgia April 27th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Alex did.

  31. jackamir April 27th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Line smash in the boxscore for AROD….

  32. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Props goes to Thomson dude for providing the audio on the last thread

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Arod said “Get off my back, okay, at least until my next AB!”

    :D

    Hey 4 NYY, versonine. Am multitasking so will be on and off. But Yanks off to a good start. I always said that pitching in an easy division is good for one’s ERA. Welcome back, Verlander!

    :)

  34. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Huge run in the first there against JV.

    The bat on ball sounds odd tonight… Must be the weather.

  37. jacksquat April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Auuuuughggghhgghhhhhhhhh

  38. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Kitty Kaat says this Rookie up for the TIgers has Dave Kingman like power.

    Nice Raul

  39. Against All Odds April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Smh ugggh

  40. Jerkface April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Atleast we know Ibanez was trying real hard

  41. Benny Blanco April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    thanks a lot ibanez

  42. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    We do miss Gardy

  43. muwarriorsfan April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Thank God for Brian Cashman.

    That Ibanez signing was a masterstroke!

  44. muwarriorsfan April 27th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Yeah, Damon isn’t as good an outfielder as Ibanez, lol.

  45. TheStraw April 27th, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    Please hurry back, Brett.

  46. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Nova throwing well, good mix.

  47. Against All Odds April 27th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Nova :)

  48. versonine April 27th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Again, what a performance by Nova. Just WOW!

  49. Duh Innings April 27th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    WTF is Ibanez doing in LF let alone in the field?

    He is an ATROCIOUS fielder.

    He has already hurt the Yankees defensively twice this year: his misplay in a loss to the Rays and tonight.

    He should’ve never dove for the ball. Good job turning a single into a triple and a run, Ibanez.

    I don’t think he’s a Yankee on June 1 – anyone else agree?

  50. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Boss – a – Nova !

  51. RMS April 27th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Nova, our #2 SP, never gets rattled.

  52. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Ibanez is the absolute worst outfielder ever. He can’t hit enough home runs to make up for his utter incompetence.

  53. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    “Thank God for Brian Cashman.

    That Ibanez signing was a masterstroke!”

    Thank God for your personality disorder. Otherwise we would never know EVERY FREAKIN’ TIME A YANKEE PLAYER ISN’T PERFECT!

    You are truly a psycho pal.

  54. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Bryan Hoch ? @BryanHoch
    Stats you won’t hear John Sterling reference: Raul Ibanez’s -18.9 UZR was the worst of any MLB outfielder last year.

    ———-

    Why in the world would the Yankee brass think that he could play OF. Nova would’ve gotten out of that inning without giving up anything if not for that circus act.

  55. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    I just turned the game on. Arod got an RBI ? Wow.. I don’t even have to guess, i bet he wung at the first pitch.

    Texis like 0 for 10 now, no surprise.

  56. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Cashman is an idiot for signing him; Genius Joe is a moron for playing him.

  57. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    If he hits enough, like so far, I think he will.

  58. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    sorry Tex is 3 for 23. nevermind.

  59. jacksquat April 27th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    That’s why some people laughed when the Yankees said they got Ibanez because he could play OF.

  60. muwarriorsfan April 27th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    “Thank God for your personality disorder. Otherwise we would never know EVERY FREAKIN’ TIME A YANKEE PLAYER ISN’T PERFECT!

    You are truly a psycho pal.”

    Sorry, Trisha,

    The only “psychos” are the members of the Yankee hierarchy (esp Cash) who thought Ibanez was an adequate OF. Anyone with MLB Extra Innings knew Ibanez was an embarrassment in the field and it was flat-out ridiculous to think otherwise.

  61. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:40 pm
    Cashman is an idiot for signing him; Genius Joe is a moron for playing him.

    —————–

    Actually Joe was the leading factor who to go with out of Matsui, Damon or Ibanez. He chose Ibanez.

  62. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Nice hitting, Raul.

  63. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    HH – then they both should go.

  64. GregD April 27th, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    we need to chip away at Verlander

    I have to disagree. He is in tunes, a realist and intuitive. You my lady are a strange one, that is for sure. I bet you didn’t even like baseball until you found this blog and someone to talk to.

  66. GregD April 27th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Chavez has looked good this year….let’s see how he does against Verlander

  67. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:44 pm
    HH – then they both should go.

    ———–

    I’m not a Cash hater like a lot of people (go figure). I’d be happy if Joe G went and Hal with him.

    I really am not sure who is worth Girardi or Valentine ?

  68. kd April 27th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    gotta wonder if ibanez is on the team in july…

  69. versonine April 27th, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Wait.. someone’s a psycho and its not me?

  70. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Can someone please tell me how many pitches Arod saw before he got a hit ?

  71. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    “Sorry, Trisha,

    The only “psychos” are the members of the Yankee hierarchy (esp Cash) who thought Ibanez was an adequate OF. Anyone with MLB Extra Innings knew Ibanez was an embarrassment in the field and it was flat-out ridiculous to think otherwise”

    BUT YOU B*TCH ABOUT EVERY YANKEE PLAYER. EVERY ONE!

    Therein lies the difference.

  72. jacksquat April 27th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Nice at bat by Chavez, but it’s hard to wear Verlander out.

  73. GregD April 27th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    I think ARod swung at the first pitch

  74. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    Cash has got to go. The Yankees 2012 payroll is over twice that of the average MLB team. They sure don’t get their money’s worth.

  75. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    WAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Time for your diaper change loser.

  76. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Against a pitcher like Veralnder, I don’t mind seeing players cheat and swing at the first pitch.. it’s the no names that we make look like Verlander that bothers me when Cano,Arod, Tex, Martin (and Jeter) that annoys the heck out of me when they swing at first pitch.

    Verlander is nasty, you have to cheat against him if you can.

    Well calling some a psycho is a bit of the pot calling the kettle black. I’m moving on.. your ignored for the rest of the night, month, season.

  79. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Good news – Dellin Betances has now lowered his ERA to 7.97. Next stop: Yankee Stadium.

  80. muwarriorsfan April 27th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    “Well calling some a psycho is a bit of the pot calling the kettle black. I’m moving on.. your ignored for the rest of the night, month, season.”

    Personal attacks are par for the course for fans who can’t handle reality, I guess. Trisha reminds me of someone on the old AOL Yankee board (maybe it’s still there). This woman was almost delusional in her positivity and would lash out at anyone who would dare criticize her dear Yankees.

  81. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    I think the bat boy should pinch hit for Tex.

    Only the Yankees could make a struggling team look like a WS champion team.

  82. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    “Well calling some a psycho is a bit of the pot calling the kettle black. I’m moving on.. your ignored for the rest of the night, month, season.”

    Yeah, because you’ve been here so long and are such a savvy poster. :roll:

    And my heart is breaking so bad that I think I need a heart surgeon to heal from you ignoring me. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

    Talk about a nutcase. Good riddance joker.

  83. GregD April 27th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    I like the fact that Nova throws strikes but he is going to give up hits

  84. syd_cash April 27th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    Nova getting himself in a little trouble here

  85. Jerkface April 27th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Fielders aren’t backing Nova this game

  86. HebrewHammer April 27th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    maybe just maybe the IF should all stand on second base. 4 weak ground balls.

  87. LGY April 27th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Holy shi*t, where is the defense tonight?

  88. muwarriorsfan April 27th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Just like I told you guys.

    Fielder, unlike Tex, actually tries to help his team and will beat the shift.

    PATHETIC FRAUD TROLL WHO DISAPPEARS WHEN THE YANKEES DO GOOD THINGS AND ONLY SHOWS BACK UP IF SOMETHINGS WRONG.

    :)

    Everyone here has your number. But you already know that don’t ya.

    warriors I have a great idea. If you haven’t done it already, let the Nova trashing begin!

  90. GregD April 27th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    hah. right on point. probably same woman. She always has to have the last word too. She can’t leave well enough alone. I’ve already moved on from her, it’s scary really.

  93. RSM April 27th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    All weak grounders!
    Where’s the defense?

  94. UnKnown April 27th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Really surprised Leyland didn’t have Kelly bunting there.

  95. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Shouldn’t have thrown FB to Cabrera, and just bad luck the other way by Fielder.

  96. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    Just think how good Nova would be if he pitched for a team that could field?

  97. kd April 27th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    Good to know that you won’t be reading about what a d-bag you are and how people on this forum think you are nothing but a joke.

    What an insecure little child you are. Yankees not pwayin way you want? Wah! Maybe mommy give you baba and blankie!

    Just like I told you guys.

    Fielder, unlike Tex, actually tries to help his team and will beat the shift.

    —————

    I’d take Fielder over Tex in a heartbeat he has confidence. Tex just wants to retire after his payday in NY.. well that and make hero headlines. Tex is completely lost in NY. for sure doesn’t belong here but who would’ve known he’d become what he has ? I’d still take the old Tex any day.. the Tex since the one HR in the ALCS is what we have now. Ever since then he’s been an embarrassment. Just like Arod will be until her retires.

  100. RSM April 27th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Guess Nova figured out he has to strike everyone out, since the defense took the night off.

  101. Jeremy April 27th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Can anyone on this team pitch a shut out ? Is that too much to ask at least once.

  102. muwarriorsfan April 27th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    “Shouldn’t have thrown FB to Cabrera, and just bad luck the other way by Fielder.”

    No, it’s not bad luck. It’s good hitting by Prince, and he hit the other way to beat the shift numerous times in Milwaukee. Tex deserves every bit of criticism he gets for refusing to take the easy base hits that are being given to him and trying to pull HR’s instead.

  103. syd_cash April 27th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    Be careful, they’ll jump down your throat saying good pitching beats good hitting every time… Nova looks good.. he got beat by good hitting not by bad pitching.. something our billionaire all-stars haven’t learned to do yet.. which ahs cost us post season after post-season.. game after game. you can’t teach an old dog new tricks or a dumb yankee trying to hit hero HR’s only.

    This is what makes no sense at all.

    Philly fans were laughing at the signing because they were familiar with Ibanez’s antics in the OF. Casual baseball fans who have seen the Phillies play on Extra Innings laughed at the signing because they had seen Ibanez butcher plays in the OF. Youtube videos are made of Ibanez embarrassing himself in the OF.

    And yet, somehow, Brian Cashman thinks Ibanez is A-OK to play in the OF and is a better option than Damon?

    You know what you have to hand it to Nova. The guy knows how to battle when in trouble and has command of his secondary pitches.

  215. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Told ya that it’s easy to have a sparking ERA when you pitch in a weak division. Keep Verlander in the AL East and see what he can/can’t do. Gerry Davis was his best friend in last year’s playoff.

    Karma is a beach!

  216. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    No matter what Nova does the rest of this game, since last year, he’s so much improved with his mixing of pitches and remains damn tough with men on.

    Fraud.

    trisha, or may I perhaps call you Trish ? Seriously, I stopped ignoring you because you seemed like you really need my attention. Are you okay ? I am seriously getting concerned. Your behavior reminds me of a girl I know that suffered from bi-polar the results were well.. pretty bad. I am seriously hoping that you are okay, and I am being 100% sincere. please just be honest. Is there someone you can call that can be there for you ?

    everybody argues on a blog, brothers and sisters fight.. it’s all okay it happens and is normal. I am really concerned for your welfare. If me ignoring you helps I will. I’m human after all, I don’t wanna see anybody committed or hurt.

    anyway if I upset you I am sorry. wish you all the best.

  221. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    That’s because Arod’s all washed up.

    Anyone who has complained and had any Yankee in this lineup dead and buried really should be ashamed. Especially someone with Arod’s talent.

    A marathon, not a sprint.

    Yeah and people were giving me crap about saying Cano has an “Ortiz” like demeanor the other night.

    Jter tried schooling him when he first came up and Cano listened. His ego doesn’t listen anymore. maybe that will humble him.

    Carbrera is a bad base runner his entire career. works for us though.

    Nova pitched pretty well. Fielder and Carbrera ain’t exactly Abbot and Costello. The other hits were weak grounders and there were multiple defensive lapses.

    Close. Second to last.

    That’s why I continue to say you can’t expect the offense to climb from out of a hole night after night because at some point they’re not going to be able to do it. Unfortunately defense didn’t help Nova tonight. With crisp fielding, we’d have the lead in this game.

    Once the SP rights the ship, the rest will automatically fall in line.

    Watch Kemp play and get back to me.

    Can we get any consistency from this team especially the starters ? This team is just a mess right now offensively and starting pitching wise. The pitching on this team has always been an issue since 2004. When was the last time this team had a solid rotation of good starters ???

    I’m confused. Not to beat down on Nova ’cause I haven’t seen the whole game. But he basically had the same pitching line as Hughes’ start vs Minn. Only 2 runs were charged to Hughes. Yet he gets killed for that start?

    It was a great AB lots of pitches probably knocked Verlander out of the game. He hit it hard at some one and got a break. But it was still a great AB.

  336. Jeremy April 27th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    If the Yankees can’t win this game then they need to look themselves in the mirror. Poor defense, mediocre to bad pitching, and the best pitcher in baseball not pitching with A + stuff.

  337. Niblick April 27th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    4 hits – too bad Yankees can’t get players like that.

  340. TheStraw April 27th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Joe West strike zone is a lot wider for Verlander than for Wade.

  342. JM April 27th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    YankeesWFAN Verlander’s last 5 pitches of 6th inn: 97, 97, 97, 96, 98.

    The guy’s a freak…Unbelievable. And he doesn’t even have his best stuff tonight.

    Joe West is anti-Yankees, always has been.

  345. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    “I’m confused. Not to beat down on Nova ’cause I haven’t seen the whole game. But he basically had the same pitching line as Hughes’ start vs Minn. Only 2 runs were charged to Hughes. Yet he gets killed for that start?”

    Probably because people look at a body of work as well as watch the games and there is no comparison between Hughes and Nova. In addition, as someone noted earlier, 4 of those runs probably shouldn’t have been charged to Nova. Tough to compare one game to another.

    Nova pitched well and fought hard.

    For the love of all that is holy can we stop putting Ibanez in LF….especially at the stadium

    Nice job getting Verlander out of there….they put some good AB’s up against him and he wasn’t his best either tonight.

  360. Jeremy April 27th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    The reason why Hughes gets killed for his starts is because he simply can not pitch effectively. He only lasts three innings and his gives up home runs like hot cakes. He has no effective secondary pitches and his fastball is straight, and he can’t battle.

    That is why people understand Nova struggling once in a while vs Hughes horrible pitching.

  361. versonine April 27th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    They violate the MLB rules on a daily basis since the strike zone is SPECIFIC but they are allowed to make their own.

    It’s a bloody joke.

    I’ve seen teams ushered out of playoff contentions based on bad calls.

    Fair? Hardly.

    No, Trisha, they dont understand. Most of these people have their heads stuck up their ass and refuse to believe that umpires or referees would let their personal feelings towards a team affect their professional responsibilities. Mainly because they dont want to admit that these sports are inherently unfair. They watch baseball, and other sports, as an escape from reality. Sports are supposed to be fun for them.

    “Some have said Teix has continued to try and pull everything, but he has not. Tried going the opposite way and the middle a few times ( tonight for one ) in the last few games. Just hasn’t had a lot of luck. Has stayed back longer too. Good for him, and he always hustles. Glove is almost unmatched.”

    4 NYY – you know his glove doesn’t count. After all, keeping runners off base has nothing to do with the final score of the game!

    “Swish gets two meaningless doubles (nobody on and two out) and then comes up with the winning run on second base and looks foolish. That’s the story of his whole career.”

    Swisher had a .979 OPS with RISP heading into tonight’s game and is I believe leading the league in RBI’s….try again

    I guess some here have never watched baseball before. Let me break it down a little, a good hitter gets a hit 3 out of ten times. That means they fail most of times. Just saying

    Also being critical of Swisher who is leading the league in RBI and just got two doubles of the best pitcher is not making some of you look really smart

    Hey Josh – Ivan Drago lost to Rocky Balboa and was a boxer with only a .500 winning percentage in American (1-1-0) : )

    Would it kill the Yanks to get a basehit with the man on second and two outs? Ridiculous!

    How many times have the Yankees collected three or more hits in a row this season? They sure can’t do it very much.

    Ibanez i.e his defense is the reason the Yanks have to waste Mo in the ninth.

    Hopefully the Yanks can walk-off win this one.

  496. 4 NYY April 27th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Money does not guarantee production. But, Teix has produced each year as a Yank.

    Almost 100 runs scored per yr. and over 30 homer avg. with over 100 RBI each year. They all count no matter when they’re attained.

    No one hits only when they want to or when the game is out of hand to achieve stats. That’s just crazy talk. If he homers in the first and strikes out in the 9th and you reverse that, it’s the same result.

    And his glove is outstanding. And, as I said he always hustles.

  497. RSM April 27th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    That was a good win. They really needed it but this team needs more consistency when it comes to runners in scoring position and starting pitching. Right now the Tigers seem like they have similar issues like the yankees. As of right now the Rangers are the best team in baseball. We will have to see if they can maintain their strength.

    “I’m confused. Not to beat down on Nova ’cause I haven’t seen the whole game. But he basically had the same pitching line as Hughes’ start vs Minn. Only 2 runs were charged to Hughes. Yet he gets killed for that start?”

    Probably because people look at a body of work as well as watch the games and there is no comparison between Hughes and Nova. In addition, as someone noted earlier, 4 of those runs probably shouldn’t have been charged to Nova. Tough to compare one game to another.

    Nova pitched well and fought hard.
    ——————————————–

    So did Hughes and he does have a good body of work as well.
