Weaver vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 9:05 p.m., YES Network and MLB Network

WEATHER: Temperatures in the 70s, dipping into the 60s. Even the worst days out here are awfully good.

UMPIRES: HP Paul Schrieber, 1B Tim Welke, 2B Laz Diaz, 3B Mike Everitt

ONE BIG HOLIDAY: The Yankees are 22-17 on Memorial Day since 1971, when the holiday first began to be celebrated on the last Monday in May. They did not play on Memorial Day in 1973, 2004 or 2005. The Yankees have won their last three Memorial Day games, and this year marks the fifth time the Yankees will face the Angels on Memorial Day (also 1984, ‘86, ‘87 and ‘96) going 2-2 in those games.

TAKE THE DAY OFF: The Yankees will not play at home on Memorial Day, Independence Day or Labor Day in the same season for the first time since 2006.

GONE STREAKING: The Yankees have won five straight and the Angels have won six in a row. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this marks the first time the Yankees and their opponent are each on a winning streak of at least five games since April of 1992 when the Yankees (5-0) and Blue Jays (6-0) met with neither team having lost a game to start the season. The Yankees won that game, 5-2, at the SkyDome.

UPDATE, 9:10 p.m.: Overheard after Jeter’s leadoff single: “Did he pass anyone with that one? Do I have to write about it?” Hilarious. And fair.

UPDATE, 9:12 p.m.: Single. Single. E-6. Just like that it’s a 1-0 Yankees lead with no outs and runners at the corners.

UPDATE, 9:15 p.m.: Well this is an interesting development. Weaver is out of the game after apparently hurting his leg on a pitch to Robinson Cano. That’s a huge break for the Yankees. Doesn’t matter who else pitches in this game, he won’t be better than Weaver.

UPDATE, 9:27 p.m.: Sac fly makes it 2-0, still in the first.

UPDATE, 9:28 p.m.: Apparently it’s a lower-back injury for Weaver.

UPDATE, 9:29 p.m.: Another Angels error. Another Yankees run. It’s 3-0. This game really couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start for the Angels.

UPDATE, 9:46 p.m.: Trumbo actually looked like he was beat on that pitch, but he slapped the ball right down the line, just fair, for an RBI double that’s pulled the Angels within 3-2.

UPDATE, 9:47 p.m.: Now a two-run single by Kendrick has put the Angels in front 4-3.

UPDATE, 9:51 p.m.: Hughes threw a lot of strikes, but he got only one swing and miss. An infield single was bad luck, and a pretty decent pitch resulted in an RBI double that fell just fair, but the Angels also hit a ton of balls hard. Kind of a mixed bag that was more bad than good, and it’s a 4-3 Angels lead after one inning.

UPDATE, 9:56 p.m.: There’s Granderson with his 15th homer of the year. Hard to believe he’s the best raw power hitter in this lineup, but that really seems to be the case right now.

UPDATE, 10:09 p.m.: More hard-hit balls in the second inning, but Hughes got through it this time with the game still tied at 4.

UPDATE, 10:21 p.m.: Strange game just keeps getting stranger. Swisher and Granderson, who nearly ran into one another in the first inning, just smashed into one another here in the third. Swisher had the ball in his glove, but the ball shot loose on impact and the resulting triple led to the go-ahead run.

UPDATE, 10:44 pm.: Trout can play, and his fifth homer of the year has given the Angels a 6-4 lead in the fourth.

UPDATE, 10:51 p.m.: Teixeira’s ninth homer of the year pulls the Yankees within one. He really is driving the ball this past week or so.

UPDATE, 11:56 pm.: It’s been a weird night, so why not have Russell Martin come through with the biggest hit of the game? His two-out, two-run double has tied the game in the seventh.

    Go Huuuuuuuuuughes! Go Yanks!

  2. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Go HUUUUUUUGHESS

  3. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    “they would want our young pitching”

    Depends on which one(s)
    ===================
    One of The B’s would be the center of it, maybe Phelps, Mitchell

  4. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    “One of The B’s would be the center of it, maybe Phelps, Mitchell”

    Depends on which B.

    Go Hughes! Hope Jared pitches like his brother tonight!

  5. Nick in SF May 28th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    I dislike all of you intensely, but I keep coming back for the free jumbo shrimp platter.

  6. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Wish Trout was on our team.

  7. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    tomingeorgia, whatever your surgery, I of course add my well wishes! I’m sure it will all be fine since the baseball gods smile favorably on positive fans!

    :)

    austin, tomingeorgia is exactly right. There can be no declarations on any trade or those traded without letting everything play out. You can’t call success OR failure two months into a season.

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

    GO PHIL!!!

    GO YANKS!!!

  8. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Depends on which B
    ==============
    neither

  9. tomingeorgia May 28th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Let’s go, Yanks! Throw strikes, Phil. And somebody hit the ball somewhere!

  10. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Come on Jeter, break up the no hitter

  11. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Nick,
    How is barry zito winning again? I really havent watched him pitch

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    “I dislike all of you intensely, but I keep coming back for the free jumbo shrimp platter.”

    I read the posts by backing up to see what I have missed. I only saw the above line before I saw the author and immediately knew who posted it.

  13. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    I will repost the Cleve. blog link about re-signing Choo, good read:http://itspronouncedlajaway.com/?p=3689

  14. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Come on Jeter, so some patience. Quit trying to hit 5 run homers

  15. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Go Jeet!

  16. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    JEEET!

    Boy of Summer :D

  18. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Go Yankees!! Go Hughes!!!

    Jeet!!

  19. jackamir May 28th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Lets get it on. I have been waiting all day for this game. Don’t disappoint me Yankees. Score early and often.

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    Hey GB.

    :)

  21. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    His Cb is nasty

  22. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    Grandy goes opp.

  23. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    But not nasty enough to throw it three times in a row. :D

  24. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Beautiful hitting by Grandy….

  25. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Follow up on those 2 hits.

  26. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Nice Grandy

  27. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Granderson can hit .300 if he keeps doing that.

  28. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Grandy!!! That’s a great piece of hitting. he stayed back, let the ball travel deep and shoot it the other way.

  29. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Mikey O’Brien pitched 6.1 innings of shutout ball. 2 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts. trenton has a 2-0 lead in the 9th inning

  30. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Before tonight, Derek batting .386 when hitting first pitch.

  31. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Would ne awesome to let Phil take the mound with a lead.

  32. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Come on Rodriguez. Break up the shutout.

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    “Lets get it on. I have been waiting all day for this game. Don’t disappoint me Yankees. Score early and often.”

    jackamir, so good to see you! I think you will agree that the Yankees have definitely righted the ship. We knew it was a matter of time, right?

    It doesn’t mean they won’t slump again. It does mean that they are exactly who we knew them to be!

    :)

  34. rb from LI May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Let’s go Yankees! Turn this into something!

  35. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    I’ll take it ;)

  36. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    a break!!

  37. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Nice.

  38. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Was hoping for something a little more explosive, but, that works

  39. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    luis – your New York Yankees! Small ball and situational hitting. It certainly has gotten better.

    :)

  40. rb from LI May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Wow. Thanks for the e. :)

  41. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Boy that ball ate Aybar alive….good things happen when you hit the ball hard sometimes….shoukda been a 6-4-3 but we shall take it.

  42. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    WOw. Take it.

  43. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    uh oh

  44. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Weaver’s down

  45. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    weaver gimpy…

  46. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Uh oh.

  47. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    And, there’s a hush all over the world…

  48. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    I think they should be careful wth Weaver and pull him.

  49. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    In deed Trish, let’s hope they keep this up

  50. rb from LI May 28th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Was that called a hit?

  51. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Last thing I want to see is Weaver out of the game or hurt.

    :(

    Geeze.

  52. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Hope he’s okay

  53. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    break this open…

  54. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    Poor Weaver. :(

  55. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    Damn, now they have an excuse.

  56. raymagnetic May 28th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    I’m so sad for the Angels and Weaver :(

  57. Against All Odds May 28th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    Not good

  58. blake May 28th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    I want to win the game but I dont like seeing good players get hurt…..I dont think Ive ever seen as many injuries as this year…

  59. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    YF,

    Thank you, but as usual you put it in better words! ;)

  60. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Weaver is Angels baseball. He’s part of what makes the game so great. I wouldn’t want to see him hurt.

  61. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    I would rather beat him, than see him hurt.

    Pun not intended.

  62. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    “I want to win the game but I dont like seeing good players get hurt…..I dont think Ive ever seen as many injuries as this year…”

    Absolutely agree.

  63. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Can’t be too bad, he was still walking.

  64. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Charleston is losing 8-3, though after a bichette double and walk to austin, Sanchez smokes a bomb to left. Also 1-2 catching base stealers

  65. jackamir May 28th, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Hi Trisha—— The ball is starting to roll in our favor. The breaks are in the favor of the Pinstripers.

  66. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    things are going well here
    how about 1st troll that shows is ignored?

  67. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    Hope Weaver’s OK tomorrow :D

  68. Nick in SF May 28th, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    “How is barry zito winning again? I really havent watched him pitch”

    Smoke and mirrors? Sometimes I really don’t understand how he’s getting batters out, but I would say he’s improved his control, especially of his curve, and he seems to mix up speeds pretty well (slow and slower), so he’s able to keep batter off balance. Today he just had one BB, as opposed to his last start (IIRC) when he was all over the place, walked the park, and ended up getting shelled. Only 3 K’s today, so he was pitching to contact but they aren’t really squaring up. He did have some very loud outs today, but they count just the same. I think his 4 wins have topped his total from last season.

  69. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    “The breaks are in the favor of the Pinstripers.”

    We could get breaks for the next ten years, and the Angels would still be ahead in that category.

  70. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    This guy is prone to BB’ing LHB.

  71. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    “Hi Trisha—— The ball is starting to roll in our favor. The breaks are in the favor of the Pinstripers.”

    jackamir, it was a matter of time. And not surprisingly, as soon as the rotation got things in order, the Yankees started to win.

    Pitching, pitching, pitching, right mick?

    ;)

    mick, agree about trolls.

  72. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

  76. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Hey, it’s tough for any team to have their starter go down 3 batters into the game.

    I feel for them.

  77. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Bad boy!!

    Got to go to bed. Hope Weaver is OK. I’ll be listening to John and Susyn til Morpheus comes. See you in a few days, sooner if I can. Go, Yanks!

  79. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    who is this pitcher?

  80. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    get well soon mr tom!

  81. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    2-0! Go, Nicky.

    Wow, the Angels playing sloppy baseball tonight. Good at bat from Ibanez, a productive out

  102. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    mick -

    Cassevah heading back up: Angels relief pitcher Bobby Cassevah was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. Cassevah was activated from the disabled list in late April after overcoming shoulder issues and shipped to the minors. He went 1-0 with three saves and a 6.75 ERA in 13 games for Salt Lake.
    (Updated 05/21/2012)

    Cassevah has appeared in 46 games during his brief career with the Angels and registered a 2.87 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 59 2/3 innings. (Updated 05/21/2012).

  103. jackamir May 28th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    So many Yankee fans in LA. Check how many NY jerseys in the crowd. Shoddy defense we’ll take it.

  104. Nick in SF May 28th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    Tough play, he had to rush the throw with Swish flyyyyyying towards first.

  105. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    GB, thanks for the milb updates. Hoping to see Marshall pitch on Thursday (fingers crossed).

  106. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    uncharacteristic of angels

  107. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Chavez at least laid off the inside pitch

  108. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    little single
    up the middle

  109. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    A hit here would be delightful.

  110. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Hopefully Martin makes it worth it. And the ump gives him extra warm up

  119. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Hey, he didn’t strike out.

    *****

    BB in a little.

    GO PHIL!

    Yeah, he’s been sitting quite a while. We’ll see if it’s thrown him off any.

  120. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Nice to give Phil the lead, now go get them!

    J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    Robi was too aggressive. Should have been bases juiced witn no outs.

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

    Yup
    ///

    Particularly on that 3rd pitch off the plate. Oh, well.

  122. jackamir May 28th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Martin is so important and so underachieving. He needs to bat lefthanded.

  123. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    that’s not good. high era with an extra day of rest

  124. Mordot11 May 28th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    We can look on the bright side with Martin. If he’s going to get to his career numbers by the end of the year he’s going to have to hit pretty well for the next four months :D

  125. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Unfortunate :(

  126. Pat M. May 28th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Trout is such an ass.

  128. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    This Ump has weird and moving strike zone

  129. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    “that’s not good. high era with an extra day of rest”

    fingers crossed but we need to watch that and factor it in if he seems out of synch.

    pitchers are creatures of habit.

  130. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    One way to look at it.

    How bad is this lineup with bases loaded?

  132. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Nice catch Grandy

  133. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Grandy tracks it down!!

  134. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Phew!! Great catch from Grandy. he is playing out of his mind.

  135. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Granderson flippin’ off UZR

  136. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

  138. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Phil-

    Try throwing a few offspeed stuff

  139. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Tar – remember how we had Grandy’s back when he was scuffling last season because of his great D?

    :)

    What a great acquisition he has been.

    Okay, later.

  140. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Going to be a high scoring game if Hughes doesn’t get it down.

  141. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    YT, just said the same.

  142. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Nice curve.

  143. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    That CB was very good. this is a key at bat

  144. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    CU in the outside corner

    So much for the offspeed in trying to fool Morales

  147. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    i would have gone with the CU there

  148. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    1. Phil sat forever in the first inning.

    2. He’s on extra rest, something that doesn’t favor his outings.

    Someone today said a quality start is when your team scores more runs than the other team.

    I second that.

  149. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Limit the damage here Phil …

  150. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    One of the hits though was really an out, Singleton.

  151. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    FB’s down the middle BP style

  152. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Trish

    Sure do remember that.

  153. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Going to be a long game tonight, probably one of those 10-9 affairs…

  154. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    They’re jumping all over him. No chance to ease in and get into any sort of rhythm.

  155. Pat M. May 28th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    fastball was by him, bad luck man

  156. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    If you’re going to continue throwing fastballs, especially over the plate, you’ll be out of the game early. Martin try getting him to throw something else.

  157. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Has he thrown a change?

  158. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    YT, yep.

    luis, me too. I know he is trying to establish it, but too many FB’s.

  159. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    how often do the yankees leave bases loaded and then give up a multi-run inning right afterwards?

  160. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    I hate the Angels

  161. Yogi Mantle May 28th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Hughes doing a great job. :roll:

  162. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Phil doesn’t have it tonight, get Phelps up…

  163. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Phil never has it. Time to face facts about Phil Hughes: He’s a POS and he always will be. If you can get a good fungo bat for him, take it.

  170. Bronx Jeers May 28th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    We know he can’t afford the tickets but can buy an out?

  171. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Well this is quite the step back…

  172. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Well, if he doesn’t settle down, we have a refreshed BP after Kuroda going eight.

  173. rr212 May 28th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    That didn’t take long. This isn’t a KC or SEA lineup.

  174. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Didn’t have a chance to get to his secondary stuff.

  175. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Lots of pitches up is the main problem.

  176. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    It all started with a weak hit

  177. mick May 28th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

  178. JobaTipsHisCap May 28th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Too bad this angels team is not the one in apr.

  179. jackamir May 28th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    2 strikes with no put away is what kills Hughes. I am feeling a bit of nausea coming on.

  180. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    That was a good CB, FB high and then a CU for the DP

  181. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Threw one good curve and a bad one.

    Damn

  182. backbench May 28th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Pitch count death, again.

  183. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Would have been nice for Martin to get a big 2 out hit for once also last inning… Those runs are looking huge now.

  184. Jeff in Canada May 28th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Hughes probably wishes he got injured after the first run too.

  185. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Damn only 1

  186. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    There you go; one more, let’s limit the damage and get another hattrick in the 2nd.

  187. JobaTipsHisCap May 28th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Yeah, it all started with that assman trout.

  188. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Atta boy.

  189. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    46 minute first inning…

  190. Nick in SF May 28th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Well, that was a bit of a slap in the face.

    Four runs will not win this game for the Angels, however.

  191. Dill Pickler May 28th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    Looks like we didn’t get rid of AJ Burnett after all. He is now wearing #65.

  192. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    Finally a few ground balls.

  193. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    It’s not the pitch count — it’s the pitches! They suck!

  201. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Yankees have played 47 games. Anyone know how many times the starters have given up runs in the 1st inning.

  202. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    I knew the lead wouldn’t hold. Didn’t A-Rod hit 2 homers early in the ball game and we still lost?

  204. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Have the Yankees ever seen this guy that’s pitching now?
    Dont think so meaning we can expect no hits in the next 4-5 innings…

  205. Yank 97 May 28th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Martin is just not a good game caller. Stewart needs to be the primary catcher

    Let Martin catch CC once a week. The rest of the guys need the catcher to call a better game than CC does.

  206. Dill Pickler May 28th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    “Can we please get some consistency?”

    The thing is, he is consistent. The 3 wins were against Kansas City (twice) and Seattle. Everyone else has hammered him.

    Haha, I’ve watched enough now to realize that but I think it eing Martin ticks me off more than anything. The guy has been a blackhole this year.

    I can’t choose who to vote for. too many choices! :D

  209. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Hughes has to pitch backwards here. Not to get in to martin, but i don’t think he called a good 1st inning.

  210. NYY fan in NH May 28th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Hughes takes a huge step back after getting 3 quicks runs for him. Let’s hope he settles down and get some innings out of him.

    “Have the Yankees ever seen this guy that’s pitching now?
    Dont think so meaning we can expect no hits in the next 4-5 innings…”

    Correct. This Bob Cassanova dude is going to throw 4.2 innings of 2 hit ball.

    Hughes still has a lot to prove, a couple of good games against the Royals and one against the Ms, or two of the weakest teams in the AL, won’t change that.

  216. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Well they should move Grandy to clean up. 15 HRs and 26 RBIs? with 15 hrs, he should be way over 30 no?

  217. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Good for Grandy. Looks like Scott Boras is behind home plate in the brown shirt.

  218. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    This guy should be batting practice.

  219. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Grandy!!

  220. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRANDY!!!

    Great AB. Laid off that pitch on the outside part of the plate that he can’t catch the corner on, made him throw it over the plate. Robi, take notes.

  221. luis May 28th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    GRANDY!!! Again he is playing incredibly well

  222. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    luis, I agree; they usually establish fastball before going too much breaking but Martin needed to get them off fastball.

  223. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    justin maxwell just hit a bomb in colorado :/

    Well, it’s a new ball game. keep it here Phil!

  227. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Well, that was a strike

  228. Carlo May 28th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Let’s put up a 0 here and start this game over again in the 3rd.

  229. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Well the offense is going to have to win this one tonight. Shouldn’t be a problem.

    The Angels pen is already worn out coming into this series and Weaver left in the 1st inning. No reason the Offense shouldn’t be able to pound out 10 runs.

  230. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    ac1-
    Liked Maxwell. He’s only hitting .203 for the Astros

  231. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Keep them off the bases. They know what’s coming, that’s Phil’s problem.

  232. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    not one hitter is fooled by that fastball

  233. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    I like how Grandy came back on the next pitch after he thought he had walked and cranked it for a HR.

    I wonder how long Joe can stay here with Phil. May be time for the Chief soon.

  234. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Oh well

  235. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Agreed.

  237. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

  239. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Throw up and in to Pujols

  247. Captain Clutch May 28th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Eventually the Yanks will give up on Hughes and realize that he doesn’t have the stuff to pitch in the AL East. He has been ok recently but his stuff isn’t anything special. You can’t continue to throw all fastballs against any lineup but especially not in the AL.

  248. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    YF-

    Not only are the starters giving up too many runs in the 1st inning, but there seems to be a good % of times that just after the Yankees score, the pitchers give up runs the very next inning.

    Pujols hits one of Hughes only fastballs he’s kept down.

  249. Carlo May 28th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Maxwell is putrid. Nix has been more valuable defensively and more productive offensively than Maxwell.

  250. luis May 28th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    CU TIME

  251. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    “Tar, maybe, they’re geared up for it, but he’s not getting the ball down and where’s the CU?”

    It’s easy when you know what’s coming. Everything is hit on the nose.

  252. 4 NYY May 28th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    My prediction is one win out of this series. Hopefully Sun.

    I think they’ll hammer Pettitte also. JMO

    Angels have had our “number” for a while now.

  253. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    It was down but it wasn’t a great pitch. Morales is a tough out as well. Need to get him out here.

  254. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    FLats is right, doesn’t have the zip on the fastball tonight

  255. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Pujols is 4/4 against Hughes this year.

  256. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Lucky. Phil is living dangerously.

  257. jackamir May 28th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Phil looks rather ordinary tonight. Everything seems to be flying off their bats. Maybe its Martins pitch calling..Lets pile on Martin….

  258. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Time to hit this fill in.

  259. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Tell me he didn’t sit on that FB.

    I have called every pitch that the camera angle has allowed me to see.

  260. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Phew. Before Flaherty said it. I was going to say the fastball doesn’t look like it has late life.

  261. luis May 28th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    That was a meatball, we were lucky. I don’t know whats going on. That was a CU count, or CB in the dirt.

  262. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Or just “throw up.”

    Hughes is getting hit HARD. HE shouldn’t be going out there again. Yikes.

    yeh, they’re sitting and the fb is just sitting there, not doing anything… needs to get the ball down

  267. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    Before Weaver got hurt he was getting hit hard as well. Even the groundball by A-Rod that was almost a dp.

  268. Captain Clutch May 28th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    He just missed a homerun. Girardi is going to leave Hughes out there too long. He has nothing tonight and the Angels are going to hammer him.

    We should be. Had we shown more patience, we could have had 5-6-7 runs against him in that first frame. Guy cannot hit the outside corner against the lefties. No business swinging at that pitch, like Cano did in a key AB

  272. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Hughes is pitching worse tonight than his career stats vs the Angel hitters, which in itself aren’t very good.

    That was definitely low.

  275. blake May 28th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    It’s basically a 0-0 game now and the Angels are already in their pen because of the injury…..Hughes just needs to settle down and try to find a groove and limit the damage because they SHOULD score some more runs against this guy and the rest of their bullpen…..the bats have a chance to really affect the rest of the series tonight by scoring a lot of runs and making them use their pen….

    Just a blip in the road for Hughes. He was brilliant in his prior 5 or 6 starts… wayyy better than Nova and wayyy better than “1 in 3 good starts” Kuroda.

    He’ll be fine in his next start against the Tigers. Nothing to see here.

  280. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    I was comforted by Kendry’s reaction when you could tell that he didn’t think he got enough of the ball to get it out.

  281. 4 NYY May 28th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Trumbo is better than last year. Trout is gonna be great. IMO

    Morales and Kendrick are very dangerous.

  285. Pat M. May 28th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    i still don’t know how trumbo was able to hit that fastball for a double as literally the ball was past him. i’m certain the blog is being overrun with send hughes to the dungeon for a beheading ant dawn. his place is and has been a house of horrors for the bombers and their so cal fans. as always tons of ny fans here.

    Trout was rated higher than Harper on most prospect lists I saw beginning of the year (Trout was 1, Harper 2). That tells you all you need to know about his talent and potential.

  339. Yogi Mantle May 28th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    The tough thing is, that ball could have been caught and an out rather than allowing the ultimately go ahead run.

    Hughes is giving up a lot of hard hit balls tonight.

  340. Wang IS Taiwan May 28th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    1. Phil sat through an inordinately long first half of the inning. You all know how that can affect a pitcher.

    2. They already announced that Phil is on extra rest and doesn’t pitch well on extra rest.

    Especially in his 2010 season where he was skipped and pitched on extra days to limit his innings. Unfortunately it comes against a team that’s on a roll and that always gives us trouble.

    Tar-

    I was pretty confused not going to lie. I’m sure Swisher could care less about what I think of him. The guy somehow is making what, 14 million this year? He has the worst approach at the plate I’ve ever seen and is average in the field. Plus, he’s been awful all 3 Octobers I will be glad when he’s gone. His time has passed.

    4NYY-

    My apologies… It’s tough to pick up jest/sarcasm on a message board sometimes. My opinion on Swisher still stands. I really dislike the player haha.

  385. Captain Clutch May 28th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Pujols will have a couple of good years but they are really going to regret that contract. He definitely isn’t 31 or whatever age he claimes that he is. He looks more like 34-35.

  386. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    He has the worst approach at the plate I’ve ever seen

    Tyler, could you be confusing him with Russell Martin?

    I wonder if SJ knows that the Heat are playing tonight.

    I mean considering he said their season was over after a Game 2 loss to the Pacers about a week ago.

    Not the most intelligent sports mind out there…

    Heat-Spurs has the potential to be an all-time classic series if that happens.

    That was a good inning regardless of the run. Any way they could charge an error? It was going to be caught by either of them and it did hit a glove. I know it won’t though.

    sorry mama hughes…that bomb was lucky it even stayed in the park
    ———————————————————

    But it stayed in nonetheless and was able to be caught by either outfielder.

  393. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    JAP-

    I think Swisher’s is just as bad or worse. Martin is what he is at this point… Swisher has more ability and can do more but he decides to be an idiot and swing for the fences like some sort of hero. Martin is just a bad hitter at this point.

  394. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Pat M-

    I live in St. Louis and was telling Cards fans for that money and amount of years, they’d be better without him. Of course, people were sad to see him leave since he was so great here but the Cards are in much better shape without him even with Berkman’s injury. Beltran has been phenomenal thus far and he would never be a Card if they had to pay Pujols.

  395. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    ID, yep, should have been an out.

    I think he’ll be good for awhile….but the peripherals have indicated that he’s been declining the last couple of years anyway….at least Alex was showing no signs of decline at the time the Yanks signed him the 2nd time….

    Tyler, I can’t disagree with any of that. I was pulling my hair out in the ALDS over Swisher ABs. I just reserve that kind of hyperbole for “Munson”, whom they preferred to Jesus Montero, and who is no worthy successor to Jorge Posada.

    I would let Swish walk and sign Melky, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

  403. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    the Cards made the right choice and made a great signing with Beltran

  410. Yankee Trader May 28th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    Pat M–

    How many hitters have come up at age 21, played in all but one game, hit 37 homers and drove in 130?

    There is no way Pujols was actually 21 yrs old when he 1st came up with the Cardinals.

  411. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    JAP-

    I can’t see San Fran not resigning Melky at this point… he’s hitting .369! They gave up Sanchez for him just last year so if Melky wants to stay there, the Giants would be stupid to let him just walk after 1 year when that club is so deprived of offense.

  412. Yank 97 May 28th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    Giambi was actually not a terrible contract – he had an OPS of .870+ in 5 of the 7 years of his deal. 30+ HRs in 5 of the years, averaged an OBP around .400

    Tex OPS’d worse in 2010 and 2011 than Giambi did at age 38 in the final year of his deal.

  413. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    Predictable. We can’t hit that inside pitch.

  417. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    blake-

    Cards also called up a kid named Matt Adams who hit 32 homeruns in the Texas League last year. He’s only played 9 games but has had multiple hits in 5 of them. He needs some work in the field at 1st but he’s got potential. They also have Allen Craig coming back who can play 1st. Pujols leaving is going to be a blessing for a mid-market team.

  418. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    amazing.

    we have 100 guys on base and do jack sh-t and they just add to their lead with 1 hit.

  422. Wang IS Taiwan May 28th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    JAP,

    I would, too, but I think the negative talk about Melky is going to prevent that. I’m not sure management is going to come around on him.

    But to be honest, part of me wonders if Melky would keep it up amid all the temptations in NY. It took almost losing his career to get in shape and turn it around. He is older, so I’d hope he’d matured since we last saw him here.

    BOO TROUT. Where’s OUR Trout??

  423. luis May 28th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

  426. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    I wonder if Trout was on the Yankees radar… wasn’t he picked like 2 picks before the Yanks got to select? As a Jersey kid, I bet they would have grabbed him if the was available.

  427. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    1st change up?

  428. LockDown May 28th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    I like Martin because he’s tough & cute :P But there were times last year where I felt he was predictable. And after the start if this season, I started to feel he wasn’t the greatest of game callers & maybe tipped off pitches after seeing some changes. But ultimately it’s up to the pitcher to make his pitch.

  429. blake May 28th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Trout is a stud….impressive young player….I like his total game better than Harper….he doesn’t have the same raw power but he does it all well…

  430. muwarriorsfan May 28th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Move him back to the pen.

  431. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    No, gameday has a changeup earlier that was hit & I think rbi too.

    He’s lucky he’s only given up 1 homer. Looked like at least 4 others could have gone out. I know he’s given up a lot of runs, but he’s been lucky it’s not 10+

    “but he’s been lucky it’s not 10+”

    Actually if you want to discuss luck, you have to take a run off the board for the collision.

  452. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Wang, I thought Melky would have a breakout year in 2010. He finally did break out, it just took an extra year. He was always capable of what he’s been up to in KC and SF. I do think the FO has a limited view of who is and isn’t “a Yankee”. That’s their problem, I guess.

  453. Jerkface May 28th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Sweeny said over the weekend that the Yanks were all over him. But they figured that he wouldn’t get past the Angels.

    The Angels only got Trout because they signed Mark Teixeira and gave the Angels the pick before the Yankees got to select. They were the only 2 teams hot on him because he was from the jersey area

  454. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    So, after 4 straight good to outstanding starts, Hughes stinks again, huh? In those 4 starts, the game he lost was 4-1 and he gave up the first two. No question that he has some things to work on, but, he’s still no worse that kuroda or nova.

  476. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Tex is scorching! Consistency is a key for him… he’s probably not going to stay this hot but if he can avoid a slump like he was in, he’ll end up with good numbers.

    I hope Girardi gets Phelps up. This is the perfect spot to use him in only a 1 run game. I hate when he wastes him in mop up duty. Let’s try to win this game instead of continuing to let Hughes get hammered.

    ———————

    He’s on pace for 6 ip if he continues. The last 2 runs were the result of an outfield collision and a solo hr. Only the 1st inning was where he got hit. And that was either because of the long wait or as they mentioned before the game. He has a high era with an extra day of rest.

    Lockdown:

    Ah…the season of competing sports. I get it. I hope you missed that really bad stretch of Yankee baseball before KC. That would cause any fan to turn the channel. I started watching bad TV shows at that point.

    But hopefully, they’re over that stretch of zero offense for good this season. They ARE the Bronx Bombers.

    Hughes has unbelievably low standards. Guy gives up 10 hits and 6 runs in 5 innings (and had balls scorched off him all night) and it is somehow praise worthy and “battling”.

    Kuroda does this, he is an NL pitcher. Nova does this, we should have sold high on him. CC does this and he isn’t an ace. Phelps gets a start and does this, he sucks and is a reliever.

  548. LockDown May 28th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    One of these days Girardi and Cashman are going to realize that Martin can’t hit. I love how they pretend like it’s just a slump. It’s like being in the NL with the pitcher batting 9th.

    He grew on me, especially the way he evolved as a defender, worked on his throws, etc. But the guy just passes up too many fat pitches and cannot get out of his own way at the plate, esp in postseason. I think part of the deal is he’s a good complementary player who has put up some numbers that make people expect more than that. But he’s not that guy. I wouldn’t mind seeing a more contact-oriented hitter in the lineup (Cabrera would be fine, but like I said, don’t see the Yankees doing that).

    Swisher is valuable especially with the price of corner outfielders these days (i.e. Jayson Werth/Carl Crawford). That being said, I don’t think he fits in to this team anymore.

    Hughes hardly gets the benefit of the doubt. If he does well. It’s against nobodies. If he doesn’t do well we should have traded him or sent him to the bullpen. The reason he’s getting some praise is for the fact that he’s been able to keep his pitch count down. Early in the season he would be out by the 4th. No one is saying this is a good start.

    Good job by Ibanez (I admit I held my breath).

  611. Wang IS Taiwan May 28th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Nice catch!

    JAP,

    When were the “Howard” episodes?

  612. luis May 28th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    That was an amazing catch from Ibanez!! I don’t understand Eppley in a close game. Let’s hope he keeps it here

  613. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Luis, how slow? You have barely posted.

  614. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    GREAT save by Tex.

  615. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Almost an incredible play.

  618. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

  619. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    How many infield hits today 3?

  620. luis May 28th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Closed eyes

  621. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Yep, good job by Teix, but that Cano can throw from that angle even if slightly off is ridiculous.

  622. Captain Clutch May 28th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Just walk Pujols

  623. Nilsson May 28th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Yes bro, but really slow internet tonight

    Son was 2 for 4, 2-out RBI, no PBs tonight :). Nice oppo single through the right side on RBI, if you didn’t see it

  625. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Just put him on now 3-0

  626. J. Alfred Prufrock May 28th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Not giving him anything to hit, that’s for sure… Morales no picnic, either

  627. Captain Clutch May 28th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Now Phelps is up??!!? Why would you bring in Eppley before him? Girardi makes no sense sometimes.

  628. luis May 28th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    YF,

    Really slow, it takes like 5 minutes to refresh the page. :( By the way good call on the cutter

  629. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    That’s fine. Albert is too hot right now. Make Kendry beat ya.

    Also I applaud this move by Joe. Get Phelps in there. Eppley can’t handle lefties.

  630. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Why didn’t Joe get Phelps up before Eppley?

  631. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Good question Straw

  634. Nick in SF May 28th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    David Phelps is from Saint Louis.

    What would be a good Vow of Victory if Phelps can hold ‘em here and then the Yanks get the win?

    Can of Budweiser?

  635. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Phelps hasn’t been that good vs. lefties either.

  636. Wang IS Taiwan May 28th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Crap.

  637. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    @#$%. They wanted to turn Morales around, but …

  640. blake May 28th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    why is Rapada on this team?

  641. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Hughes pitch count was okay. I don’t know why take him out?

  642. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Stupid little bleeding infield hit from Izturis

  643. sunny615 May 28th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    I know you can’t win them all. But a bunch of bullpen scrubs. Really?

  644. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Why bring in a rhp to face Morales???

  645. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Thanks for a streak killing effort tonight, Phil.

  646. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Final line ends up being 5.1 7er.

  647. Captain Clutch May 28th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Girardi is a moron. He put Phelps in a tough, tough spot. He should of brought him in when he took Hughes out. Brining in Eppley made absolutely no sense. Eppley is AAA nothing and Girardi is treating him like he is one of his “guys”.

  648. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Nick-

    Toasted Ravioli, duh. Who needs a can from that Belgian brewery ;) Know your St. Louis specialties!

  649. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    He wanted Morales to bat lefty: he’s a much better righty hitter, but Phelps numbers vs. lefties aren’t good.

  650. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Girardi didn’t want Hughes to see Trout again.

    Do the Bombers have a rally in their bones?

  651. Jerzz May 28th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    The middle relief is going to kill the team. Normally, Wade and Soriano would be getting these innings. Now, they are our 8th-9th inning guys

  652. Ace May 28th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Hughes is terrible. What a bum he’s turned out to be

  653. Bo knows May 28th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Cue the Girardi is an idiot, brigade.

  654. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    phelps is NOT robertson.
    he isnt geared to come into that situation.

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

    Bro,

    Internet so bad that i couldn’t. Good to hear that he had a good night!

    I don’t want to second guess here, but i never understood Eppley in that situation when you Phelps and Rapada there. This wasn’t a game to punt like Girardi just did.

  656. sunny615 May 28th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    This potent lineup sure showed those bullpen scrubs a thing or two.

  657. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    Not over yet. Here we go!

  658. Nick in SF May 28th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    I don’t know where to get Toasted Ravioli around these parts, but if Phelps is the winning pitcher of record, I will drink a Bud tonight and then get some of that ravioli stuff later.

  659. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    One of the things most fans have agreed upon is that Girardi is really good at handling the bullpen.

    So wait to hear what his reasons were. I’m sure he’ll be asked about it.

  660. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    Jerzz-

    Don’t blame the middle relief for Phil’s stellar 7 ER tonight.

  661. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    We need a good AB here, Teix.

  662. ac1 May 28th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    yankees bat like .500 with bases empty and like .025 with runners on base.

  663. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Robertson and Soriano would not have been in this game anyways tonight even with a healthy MO. The Yankees were behind.

    However, Wade would’ve been your pitcher last inning not Eppley and Phelps. So yeah the middle relief has taken a hit.

  664. blake May 28th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Morales has a .490 OPS as a RH hitter this year and is about .200 points lower for his career from that side…..seeing as how a base hit would open the game up right there I’m not sure why they didn’t have Logan or Rapada in the there.

  665. igotid88 May 28th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

  666. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Morales is not a better hitter vs rhp.

  667. pkyankfan69 May 28th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Only 4 hits off the Angels BP over 6 innings is just disgraceful

  668. Pat M. May 28th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    I’m sitting in the same seats that I did back in july 09 when joba had his final meltdown before the all star break. the killer for hughes tonight was the seeing eye double by trumbo that i still cannot understand how he hit a pitch that was by him. angel bullpen is going to cost them the game tonight

  669. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    I mean he’s not a better hitter righthanded.

  670. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    I was going to say how is Mattingly not on that doubles list. But than I saw it only goes to 11th place

  673. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Definition of a scrub – any pitcher in the majors whom certain posters have decided should roll over for the Yankees.

    Only the Yankees have quality relief…

  674. TheStraw May 28th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Ok, maybe it’s not over yet…..

  675. Tyler May 28th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    that’s because you can only get it in St. Louis! That would be a true homage to CBC and Notre Dame graduate Phelps!

    This game should have been played at 1 PM

  677. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    YF, Tar, and mick.

    Still no Sux hat to be worn.

    It really does work out well this way. They end up talking to each other or to themselves.

    ;)

  678. UnKnown May 28th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Blake I didn’t realize those numbers on Morales. I hope that Joe wasn’t going to Logan to face Morales just because it was only the 6th inning but I wouldn’t put it past him.

    I liked the move to Phelps but I guess Logan was probably the better move.

  679. LockDown May 28th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    ?@ESPNStatsInfo

    Phil Hughes is the 2nd pitcher since 1997 to allow 1+ HR in each of 1st 10 starts of season (Runelvys Hernandez in 2006) #Elias

  680. yankeefeminista May 28th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Yeah, I realize I reversed Morale’s numbers, so guess Girardi just doesn’t trust his second LOOGY.

  681. jacksquat May 28th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Gotta wonder why he didn’t use a lhp there. Was one not ready?

  682. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 28th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    “OK, maybe it’s not over yet…..”

    Sorry but i can’t respect that guy. Good that he brought those big runs, but i simply can’t respect him.

    luis, if you can’t, you can’t. And I believe you respect most of the players, so you definitely have your reasons.

  772. J. Alfred Prufrock May 29th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    Argh. Just get the next out, Phelps.

  773. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    YF,
    thats where not having Mo and Robertson really hurts….because if just one of them were available then maybe Joe goes to Logan there and it’s 8-6 right now.

  774. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    YF – You, I, and Rodney D.

    :D

    Poor Peter Bourjos. Only reason he’s in is because Hunter and Wells are out. If either comes back, he’s back on the bench.

  775. Phranchise May 29th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    come on Nick, he was going to draw a throw but who goes 1st to 2nd on a fly out to RF?

  776. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    Bad job by Swisher. The Yanks always make too many mistakes against the Angels.

  777. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    Stop b*tching, Scioscia. That was a strike.

  778. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    the Angels should just float balls out to right field and right center. I’m sure he will find more ways to screw things up… Puts the go-ahead run in scoring position… fantastic

  779. Phranchise May 29th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    weak bottom of this lineup. have to get these guys out.

  792. Phranchise May 29th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    Phelps doesn’t have it tonight. We need one good pitch

  793. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    “you can’t walk a crappy9 hitter even if you got squeezed”

    Kind of a contradiction in terms since if you’re getting squeezed you’re not getting the strike calls that keep you from walking the “crappy hitter”.

    **********

    I’d pitch around him. We’ve got first open.

  794. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    Phelps is really shaky today but since the bullpen is so short Girardi has no choice but to hope he gets through it. It would be nice to have Wade pitching now. This bullpen is going to kill them.

  795. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    Tar, good job.

  796. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:12 am

  802. Phranchise May 29th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    not really a contradiction, the 3-2 pitch was clearly a ball, there was no squeezer there, you have to make him put it in play. They got out of it anyway

  803. Pat M. May 29th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    katie just informed me that they make irish coffees now with bushnill. time for a double , hold the whip cream

  804. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    I wonder if Girardi goes to Phelps for another inning. Once you pull him it’s only Wade and Soriano left. Hopefully the guys can score a run or 2 against the Angels terrible bullpen.

  805. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    “walking wilson could be an issue”

    Pat M – it could have been, but had it been, it would not have been Phelp’s issue.

    When you get screwed two pitches by an umpire, it is not your issue.

    Something worth remembering.

  806. luis May 29th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    We are scoring this inning

  807. Phranchise May 29th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    Yes he is, but has worked in 3 straight I believe. So probably is not available.

    Both teams with pen issues the longer this thing stays tied.

    Does Grandy lead the league in strikeouts?

  821. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Walden throws absolute heat and if that slider is getting over, it’s going to be tough.

  822. Phranchise May 29th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    I think they’re by committee at this point. I know it was Jordan Walden last season.

  826. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    That inning was way too quick. The longer it goes the worse it is for the Yanks.

  827. sunny615 May 29th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    10 pitch inning. Awesome job offense.

    Then, maybe not :(

  829. jacksquat May 29th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    That guy’s delivery looks painful.

  830. Phranchise May 29th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    Walden was removed from the closer role. Downs is the guy, but Fireri has gotten some chances on matchups and when Downs has been unavailable.

  833. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:20 am

    Actually Phelps walked the nine man. The ump has been brutal both ways. You have to role with it.

    Martin and Granderson specifically got the benefit of two pitches that I can definitely remember.

    There has been nothing but inconsistencies from Schreiber all night tonight. So I would suggest next time Wilson is batting, not to leave it in his hands and throw the ball down the middle.

  834. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:21 am

  836. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:21 am

    after Walden threw Alex a first pitch slider for a strike to I was thinking ok guess fastball and Alex clearly did…..he threw another slider which he waved at for strike 2 and then at that point it’s hard to catch up to 99…..that’s when you tip your cap..

  837. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:22 am

    jackamir-

    I was born in Vegas and lived there for 3 and a half years so I don’t remember too much. I’m a big Rebels fan though along with my family. So pumped for next year with that great recruiting class!

  838. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:22 am

    Sucks that we have to try and get one more inning out of Phelps, but it’s probably the smart move considering this thing could go for awhile.

  839. Nick in SF May 29th, 2012 at 12:22 am

    Tyler, shipping those toasted raviolis may be a little cost prohibitive, as they have to be shipped in a little iced cooler.

    Would some Bissinger’s chocolate be an appropriate tribute if Phelps can win this game????

  840. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:23 am

    I’m not afraid of Downs or Fireri. They haven’t faced our Yankees.

    So there!

  841. Dill Pickler May 29th, 2012 at 12:23 am

    “Martin and Granderson specifically got the benefit of two pitches that I can definitely remember. ”

    Just because Fat-Face Whining Scioscia makes his little stupid face at the ump begging for every call, doesn’t mean the pitch was a strike. Guy cries like Robin Williams in a double feature for every pitch.

  842. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:24 am

    Pujols looks like he is back.

  843. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:24 am

    Walden was darn near unhittable that inning…..can’t really hold that one against the offense….when you’re pumping 98 and throwing sliders and changups for strikes nobody is going to hit you much

  844. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:24 am

    Nice pitch to get Pujols

  845. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:24 am

    Yeah not much the Yanks offense could have done to work Walden more… that’s an instance where you just give the guy credit and try to go to work on the next guy.

    I think Bissinger’s is the Chocolate Bar in the Central West End here? It’s pretty good stuff too. Pappy’s Smokehouse doesn’t ship by any chance do they?

  858. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:26 am

    Nice way for Phelps to go out.

    And it looks like it was indeed a 6th inning thing to why Logan didn’t face Morales last time which is disappointing.

    That was such a huge spot in the 6th with the bases loaded that it would have been a nice high leverage situation to use Logan in. Now he comes in the game with the bases empty. Kind of a waste.

  859. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:26 am

    You have to wonder why he didn’t go to Rapada if he was saving Logan.

  868. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:29 am

    now Joe turns him around with 2 outs and nobody on…..this is where conventional managing makes no sense….you do it now but not in the 6th with the bases loaded only because it’s 2 innings later…..games are sometimes won or lost before the 8th or 9th inning and this siutation isn’t close to as important as that one was.

  869. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:29 am

  874. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:30 am

    Unknown, I know that life happens but when you’re in a really tight game, you don’t want to have to get 4 outs per inning, especially after you’ve come in during a tough situation and then have gone innings beyond that. So you’re a little careful with your pitches.

    After all, 9 hole hitters with poor averages have hit the ball before. Ask Russell Martin.

    Phelps had him struck out. Twice.

    I’m not arguing consistency of the ump. I’m sure we got the benefit of pitches too.

    I’m arguing against those posters who jumped all over Phelps for “walking” Wilson.

    But whatever. It’s over. No harm no foul.

    Moser will be gone, Bennett will probably be 1 and done. I don’t know if Birch can prove enough in half a year to leave but who knows. The Roscoe Smith transfer is a nice pickup and I really like Kalin Reinhardt.

  880. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:31 am

    COME ON TEXACO!!!!

  881. luis May 29th, 2012 at 12:32 am

    YF,

    He was a little rusty, but he came back strong. Logan has been money this season, that was a big k.Now we need to score this inning.

  882. jacksquat May 29th, 2012 at 12:32 am

    Walden again…

  883. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:32 am

    Tex, en fuego.

  884. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:32 am

    Nick-

    Yeah, that’s good stuff. Schlaflys beer is another alternative… it will be saved for Phelps’ next victory!

    Or you could pop one open in honor of Mizzou baseball!

  885. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:32 am

    blake, high leverage is inexplicably always trumped by 8th, 9th roles.

    TEIXY en fuego!

    Here it comes…

  886. Yank 97 May 29th, 2012 at 12:33 am

    Singleton has a very smooth play-by-play voice. Very soothing and easy on the ears.

  887. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 12:33 am

    “Phelps is out, so I guess it’s a moot point. ”

    I just checked Boone is from San Antonio, Tx.

    You can’t give up now, you have me invested in your search.

  888. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:33 am

    jackamir – We have this game!!!

    I truly believe we are going to win it. Sit back and enjoy.

    And here’s the great news. Our guys have battled back and battled back and battled back.

    :)

  889. jacksquat May 29th, 2012 at 12:33 am

    He may not have wanted Rapada vs a rhh even if it was Morales. rrh’s have kind of killed Rapada over his career. But then Logan is needed there.

  890. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:34 am

    The field coverage by this guys is almost unfair, Raul hammered that ball.

  891. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:34 am

    Damn Ibanez hit that good

  892. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:34 am

    “But Boone is our new eight inning guy ™.”

    I know I know….I just hate the idea of saving relievers for situations that may never happen……

  893. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:34 am

    Interesting that Scoscia left Walden in. I know he’s throwing gas but you typically bring your closer in, in a tie game at home.

    So does that mean he considers Walden one of the committee? Or it could be that Walden is doing well and he wants to save his other guys for the next games.

  894. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:35 am

    He doesn’t trust “Rapady” or he has a little tweak and wasn’t available…

  895. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:35 am

    Trisha sorry but I totally scrolled past that post once I saw my name in it. Not going to drain the blog with continually posts over Phelps walking a guy hitting .179. Go Yanks.

  896. jackamir May 29th, 2012 at 12:35 am

    Thanks, Trisha I needed that!!!!!

  897. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 12:36 am

    “rrh’s have kind of killed Rapada over his career”

    True, but any worst than Morales lefty vs Epply the righty?

  898. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:36 am

    trisha-

    I don’t think there is really a committee… I’m pretty sure Downs gets the save opportunities when he’s rested. But unknown pointed out that he has thrown 3 straight games so he might not be available.

  899. J. Alfred Prufrock May 29th, 2012 at 12:36 am

    TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:29 am
    Six games without Michael Kay is pure bliss.

  900. Nick in SF May 29th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    Phelps did an ok job after that double… don’t think I can find Schlafly’s tonight, but I will default to Plan A and get a Bud if the Yanks can win. That Chocolate looks pretty good, I’ll hold it in reserve for a Phelps celebration down the road.

    I still need a Vow of Victory for tonight’s hero, however. Or I could just go to bed. :oops:

  901. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    re: Kay, QFT.

  902. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    “Trisha sorry but I totally scrolled past that post once I saw my name in it. Not going to drain the blog with continually posts over Phelps walking a guy hitting .179. Go Yanks.”

    He didn’t.

    And I will sleep well tonight despite your not reading the post!

    :lol:

  903. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    We may yet see Freddy in this game…

  904. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    Good ABs all around this inning.

  905. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:38 am

    Who going to be the hero tonight?

  906. igotid88 May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Jay Jaffe ?@jay_jaffe
    i’m glad Teixeira now realizes that tuberculosis was a bad career move

  907. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    jackamir – that’s how I look at every game. No need to worry prematurely!

    :)

  908. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Great AB.

  909. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Professional AB by Chavez…l

  910. jacksquat May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    “rrh’s have kind of killed Rapada over his career”

    True, but any worst than Morales lefty vs Epply the righty?

    Like lots of others here, I would have gone with Logan. Whole game could be different after that and Logan may very well have not been needed later.

  911. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    I guess they figure no way Martin can get 2 big hits in one game

  912. J. Alfred Prufrock May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Can lightning strike twice?

  913. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    good AB Chavy……can Martin do it twice in one game?

  914. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:40 am

    Tyler, got ya.

    Thanks.

    :)

  915. luis May 29th, 2012 at 12:40 am

    Is Martin ready for a second big hit? Just don’t swing from your heels, watch the ball.

  916. jackamir May 29th, 2012 at 12:40 am

    Russell Martin, oh no deja vu.

  917. Wang IS Taiwan May 29th, 2012 at 12:40 am

    Why does he have to swing for the fences? Is he afraid his bat’s too slow?

  918. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:41 am

    If Martin gets another hit, my head will explode.

  919. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:42 am

    You have to be kidding me. That stinks…….

  920. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:42 am

    GREAT JOB BY MARTIN!!!!

    Wow, maybe he’s turning things around!

  921. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:42 am

    Atta boy, Russell.

  922. igotid88 May 29th, 2012 at 12:42 am

    2 for Russell. Even when we get a hit with RISP we can’t score

  923. luis May 29th, 2012 at 12:42 am

    Have to give it to the guy. He had the right approach there. Only a great play from the SS prevented that run from scoring.

  924. blake May 29th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    arg

  925. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Way to be patient, Jete.

  926. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    :(

    Darn. I wish Jeter had taken maybe at least one pitch.

  927. LockDown May 29th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Martin is starting to heat up :P

  928. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    I hate when they swing at the 1st pitch

  929. egk May 29th, 2012 at 12:45 am

    Anyone have Jeter’s average with RISP? I swear it must be pitiful

  930. GhettoBlaster May 29th, 2012 at 12:45 am

    remember when Jeter used to get clutch hits?

    Guy is a groundball machine with RISP

  931. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:45 am

    Extra inning games are the bain of my existence.

    I just hate them.

    GO CORY WADE!!!

    It will be interesting to see how Scoscia plays the rest of this. Can Walden go another inning? I would think not.

  932. Tyler May 29th, 2012 at 12:45 am

    Truombo and Kendrick scare me here…

  933. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Maybe it is meant for Tex to win this for us…

  934. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:46 am

    trisha – true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    He didn’t.

    ———

    David Phelps pitching:
    Howard Kendrick : Strike looking, Ball, Kendrick grounded out to third.
    Erick Aybar : Strike looking, Aybar singled to right.
    Peter Bourjos : Pickoff attempt to first, Ball, Foul, Pickoff attempt to first, Ball, Bourjos flied out to right, Aybar to second on right fielder Swisher fielding error.
    Bobby Wilson : Strike looking, Ball, Strike looking, Ball, Ball, Wilson WALKED
    Mike Trout : Ball, Ball, Trout flied out to right.

    My God Trisha either he walked him or he didn’t. See the play by play above.

    He WALKED him. The guy went to first base and everything. And then guess what the next guy got to bat as well.

    I really can’t believe I am arguing with someone at 12:45 est over whether a player walked in an at bat or not. When it is a FACT that he did walk. There is no opinion over this. He either walked or did not. Goodness…

  935. cs in la May 29th, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Sitting here at the game and hating the rally monkey

  936. jacksquat May 29th, 2012 at 12:47 am

    crap

  937. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Well that was fun….

  938. I Am Winning May 29th, 2012 at 12:47 am

    You have got to be kidding me.

  939. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Nice way to end the night. About as enjoyable as trying to make a point around here.

  940. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Good night Yankee fans.

    :sad:

  941. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Oh well….Looks like they spared you, Trisha.

  942. LockDown May 29th, 2012 at 12:48 am

    I like Wade. He generally has an amazing changeup. But not on that pitch :?

  943. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Jeter: RISP .289/.364/.395
    RISP Two outs .313/.389/.313

    Crap. Game over.

  944. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Drat.

    Well, the Yankees made it a game.

    jackamir, isn’t it better to be hopeful right up to the end rather than to worry that something will go wrong? It works for me. I hope it works for you too…

  945. igotid88 May 29th, 2012 at 12:49 am

    They wanted us to win this game. And we couldn’t capitalize

  946. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 12:49 am

    ‘Night, Tar. :(

  947. Nick in SF May 29th, 2012 at 12:49 am

    Well that’s one that thoroughly sucks to lose. :mad:

  948. I Am Winning May 29th, 2012 at 12:50 am

    Everyone wanted to rush Hughes up to the majors 5 years ago, even myself. But in the end, it really doesn’t matter.

  949. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 12:52 am

    Unknown, sorry but I totally scrolled past that post once I saw my name in it. Not going to drain the blog with continual posts over Phelps “walking” a guy hitting .179

    I’m sure you’ll sleep despite that.

    Have a good night.

  950. J. Alfred Prufrock May 29th, 2012 at 12:53 am

    Well, that sucked

  951. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 1:00 am

    Unknown, sorry but I totally scrolled past that post once I saw my name in it. Not going to drain the blog with continual posts over Phelps “walking” a guy hitting .179

    He Did.

    My ability to sleep doesn’t revolve around circus people who post on a blog.

  952. sunny615 May 29th, 2012 at 6:28 am

    Stupid Yankees.
