TIME/TV: 10:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: No complaints. It’s beautiful out here tonight.

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

STAY HOT:
Mark Teixeira has gone 12-for-25 (.480) with eight runs, four doubles, four homers, 10 RBI and six walks in his past seven starts. He had not started the previous three games, sitting out to try to get over a cough.

NOT ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN: The Yankees scored three runs in the first inning Monday. It was the 18th time the Yankees had scored in the first inning this season, and they’re 11-7 in those games, losing five of their last eight.

ON THIS DATE: Seventeen years ago today, Derek Jeter made his Major League debut with the Yankees in Seattle, starting at shortstop and going 0-for-5 as the Yankees lost 8-7 in 12 innings at the Kingdome. Jeter would record his first career hit the next night with a fifth-inning single off Tim Belcher.

UPDATE, 10:25 p.m.: Mike Trout might have destroyed his face in the process, but his leaping catch at the wall has ended the top of the second. Both starters looking pretty sharp so far.

UPDATE, 10:50 p.m.: Cano goes down looking to leave the bases loaded. He didn’t like the call, but it ends a big scoring opportunity for the Yankees.

UPDATE, 10:56 p.m.: Mike Trout’s a nice looking player. His RBI triple put the Angels in the lead before Albert Pujols went deep witha  two-run homer to make it a 3-0 game in the bottom of hte third.

UPDATE, 11:06 p.m.: Ibanez double. Swisher single. Just like that, the Yankees are on the board, down 3-1.

UPDATE, 11:34 p.m.: Pettitte’s doing the job again. He needs some runs in a big way.

UPDATE, 11:44 p.m.: The moment Trumbo made contact, Pettitte dropped his head and slapped his glove. The solo homer pushed the Angels lead to 4-1 here in the sixth, but Pettitte left two runners stranded to limit the damage.

UPDATE, 12:14 a.m.: Swisher hit that ball hard, but Bourjos covers a lot of ground out there and he tracked it down to end the eighth with runners left at the corners. Pettitte’s back out for the bottom of the eighth.

UPDATE, 12:23 a.m.: Eppley is supposed to get ground balls, and he’s done that, but Cano was shading toward second and Kendrick got an RBI single through the right side of the infield. It’s now 5-1 Angels.

    By the end of the night we’ll be tied at the top of the Wildcard standings and 2 games out of first. I’ll take it. Sux will be 4 or 5 back. I’ll take it.

    ——–

    Where are you getting your information from.

  4. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Go Jeet!

  5. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Go Andy, Go Yankees!

    Thanks JS….It’s nice an 8 pm game.

  6. jackamir May 29th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Lets score early and frequently. Make them play from behind….

  7. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    I liked Aybar’s defense better last night.

  8. JobaTipsHisCap May 29th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Andy is the man

  9. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    I wish Grandy would forgot about bunting. He is leading the team in bombs.

  10. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Hi JF, Unknown and everyone else

  11. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    400th start! wow! that’s a lot of starts from Andy

  12. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Whats up Luis. I’m pumped to watch Andy work. I missed him last year.

  13. TheHansons May 29th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    UnKnown: My crystal ball.

  14. CompassRosy May 29th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Go, Yankees!!!

    Tarnish these halos!

  15. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Me too….Lucky break for Izturis

  16. TheHansons May 29th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Also, here… http://espn.go.com/mlb/standings/_/type/wild-card

  17. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    That was a strike to Pujols

  18. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    That is just 400th career start as a Yankee right? Not overall

  19. TheHansons May 29th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Ah, jeez, keep it together Jays. We don’t need an O’s comeback. Keep it together. Keep it together. K.I.T. Keep it together.

  20. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    The Hansons,

    Gotcha. ha

  21. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Cano has had a lot of trouble this year getting balls out of his glove on turns….weird.

  22. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    “That is just 400th career start as a Yankee right? Not overall”

    right….483rd overall

  23. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Yes, Unknown 400 as a Yankee. You could add 70-80 to that total.

    Yup Blake, that’s the second transfer that Cano hasn’t been able to make.

  24. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Yup, predictable…They are going to pitch him with low pitches and off speed stuff to Tex.

  25. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    You guys think there will ever be another 300 game winner someday?

  26. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    I’m starting to really hate Trout

  27. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Wow!

  28. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    “You guys think there will ever be another 300 game winner someday?”

    yes….he plays for the Yankees.

    Trout is unreal.

  29. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    That was like something you see in a video game not real life.

  30. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Damn!! I am starting to dislike this Trout kid. What a play

  31. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Kid can do it all…..

  32. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    I dislike him more now that I have learned that although he is from NJ, Trout grew up a Phillies fan.

  33. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Yup,

    CC might have a chance…After him….Very difficult

  34. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    aside from the great play by Trout…..great piece of hitting by Swisher…wish he’d do that more.

  35. JobaTipsHisCap May 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Told u trout is annoying

  36. TheHansons May 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Here are 3 things to like: O’s lost. Rays lost. Sox are in and endless rain delay that will sap their energy win or lose. Go Yanks!

  37. jackamir May 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Trout & Trumbo…. These guys are a pain in my ass. They are on my short list…

  38. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    I dislike him more now that I have learned that although he is from NJ, Trout grew up a Phillies fan.

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

    Really?? Now I dislike him even more.

  39. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Blake – I think he has a good chance. That would be awesome.

  40. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    I hate watching Haren pitch knowing that the Yanks could of had him and the Angels got him for nothing.

  41. JobaTipsHisCap May 29th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    I began to root against him from last night.

    Trout is really annoying. Drill him.

  42. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Halladay has a shot as well if he can stay healthy but a lot depends on who he’s playing for too….the Phillies need to retool quickly for him to have a chance or he needs to get on another team…..after him and CC I’m not sure….everyone else has a long ways to go.

  43. TheHansons May 29th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Mmmm. Trout… http://epicureanbliss.com/2010.....sea/trout/

  44. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    List of players Teixera has cost teams (Braves and Yankees): Elvis Andrus, Feliz, Saltalamacchia, Matt Harrison, and Mike Trout.

  45. Bronx Jeers May 29th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Christ, even the YES promos are selling trout.

  46. mick May 29th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    can see yanks making a play for torii hunter, FA next year.
    old age=low salary

  47. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    My very favorite kind of game. A pitcher’s duel.

    I think Andy is actually pitching better than I ever remember him pitching before.

    Yankees will break through, hopefully by the 5th. (my raggedy prediction)

    :)

  48. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Young players are exciting to watch. Watching these young guys makes me hate the Montero trade even more.

  49. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Now Haren is mixing in his curve even.

    I hope they don’t just can that game at Fenway. The Tigers can get 3 runs in the ninth off of Aceves. They saw him well yesterday in that blow out.

  50. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    Wonder what pitcher the Yanks could have traded Trout for? ;)

  51. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    And from the “grass is always greener” annals –

    Mike Trout is playing beautifully for the Halos. You have no idea what Mike Trout would do for the Yankees. (I’m sure some of you would like to find out, of course.)

    :)

  52. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    List of players Teixera has cost teams (Braves and Yankees): Elvis Andrus, Feliz, Saltalamacchia, Matt Harrison, and Mike Trout.

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

    When you look at it like this, the amount of talent given in exchange has no correlation with Tex’s value, even at his best.

  53. mick May 29th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    yanks would not have traded trout

  54. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Before beating the M’s last time out. Haren did lose to SD, Oak, and MIN.

  55. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    And Martin has come alive!!!!

    :)

  56. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Atta boy, Jeet. Let’s get Andy some runs here.

  57. mick May 29th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    yanks will hit for andy

  58. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Come on Grandy wait for your pitch

  59. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Nice job by jete….time for him to get hot again.

  60. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    “Before beating the M’s last time out. Haren did lose to SD, Oak, and MIN.”

    I’m pretty sure I heard that in 3 of the last 4 games where Haren lost, the Halos didn’t score a run. Not one run.

    Teams slump.

  61. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Arod will be the man in this inning

  62. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    boy Granderson isn’t reading that split at all….

  63. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Terrible at bat for Granderson. He and Swisher have to prove they can lay off that off speed crap in the dirt. Otherwise they are going to continue to see it after the pitcher gets ahead in every at bat.

  64. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    luis – Russell and Derek want to make you proud. Small ball!

    :)

  65. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Maybe Haren can show Hughes how to throw that….

  66. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Way to lay off that last splitter Alex. Great take.

  67. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Heads up base running by the Captain

  68. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    YES!!!

    :)

    Great job Alex.

    Neighborhood play, bye bye.

    ****

    Mike Scoscia ALWAYS looks constipated.

  69. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Great hustle DJ….Aybar saved a run….I like him better when he’s wrapped up in a ski mask.

  70. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Nice AB.

  71. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    He beat the throw anyways. Had nothing to do with pulling the fielder off the bag or not. Good call.

    Huge point in the game right here now for Cano and the Yankees.

  72. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    I have seen enough of Aybar’s range already. Damn he keeps everything in the infield. Sciosica always has to cry about everything.

  73. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Alex is seeing the ball really well….he laid off some tough pitches that AB

  74. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    COME ON ROB-BY!!!!

  75. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Cano looks like he is pressing

  76. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    bases loaded…..the Angels have us right where they want us.

  77. Wang IS Taiwan May 29th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    I bet Jete’s saying, Hey! You took away a hit from me already, I’m not giving you this base, too!”

    Obviously safe. Love how Jete helps out the ump there.

  78. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    trisha – true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:39 pm
    And Martin has come alive!!!!

    ——-

    He reached on an error.

  79. Wang IS Taiwan May 29th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    grr.

  80. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    “bases loaded…..the Angels have us right where they want us.”

    :lol:

    **********

    “He reached on an error.”

    Hey he reached. He could have Kd.

    ;)

    I didn’t see the play. I just looked up and saw him on base.

    **********

    3-2-1 – start the complaining about bases loaded…

  81. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    That was outside…But it was too close to take

  82. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    More Cano RISP fail. Can’t be taking that pitch there.

  83. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Haren’s split is nasty….you see 2 or 3 of those in a row then a heater has got to be tough to pull the trigger on

  84. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    That was real surprising

  85. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    The pitch looked inside.

  86. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    At least they are running his pitch count up.

  87. mick May 29th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Mike Scoscia ALWAYS looks constipated.
    =========================
    not as much as papelbum

  88. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    BloggingBombers

    The Yankees have one hit in their last 32 plate appearances with the bases loaded. No pressure, Robbie.

  89. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    “3-2-1 – start the complaining about bases loaded…”

    yea…..but it is hilarious how many times they have had the bases loaded recently on not scored at all….especially the times it’s been with no outs

  90. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    “Haren’s split is nasty….you see 2 or 3 of those in a row then a heater has got to be tough to pull the trigger on”

    Good for you, blake. You could have gone for the easy one, but you didn’t. Kudos.

  91. mick May 29th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    3-2-1 – start the complaining about bases loaded…

    don’t instigate–semi-troll alert!

  92. Marcus May 29th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Outside

  93. rr212 May 29th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    the stranded bases loaded thing is usually followed by the other team capitalizing in the same or next inning. i hope it doesn’t happen here.

  94. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Yeah, the crazy part is that Haren is no pitcher. He doesn’t know how to bear down and get that final out with the bases loaded! Only Yankee pitchers can do that.

    :roll:

  95. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Really needed a big hit from Cano there. That is how you win tough ball games like tonight.

    You never know how many more chances you might get and now Andy has to continue throw up zeros.

  96. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    “the stranded bases loaded thing is usually followed by the other team capitalizing in the same or next inning. i hope it doesn’t happen here.”

    Funny you say that. I almost wonder if there’s some psychological let down and that carries over into the next inning.

  97. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    COME ON ANDY!!!

  98. Ace May 29th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    What a disaster this team is with RISP

  99. rr212 May 29th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    and/or momentum gained from other side. The point is, though, that they are 1 for 33 in their last 14 at bats w/ the bases loaded. they better make up for that later on in the season.

  100. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    JOBBED!

  101. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    pretty darn close right there.

  102. Against All Odds May 29th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Smh Trout

  103. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    This kid is killing us. With assistance from the ump, this time.

  104. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    he’s their best player already

  105. rr212 May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    and….there you go. runs after leaving the bases loaded. never fails.

  106. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Trout is a maniac

  107. luis May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    It’s official….I hate Trout.

  108. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    GORGEOUS!

    Love Chavez at third. Love Chavez in the game, period.

  109. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Nice play by Chavez.

  110. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    not real smart there though….nice play Chavy

  111. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Nice play by Chavez.

  112. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    The Yanks have to play perfect defense if they want to beat the Angels

  113. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    luis, +1.

  114. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Hey everybody

    Got home late just caught up I and am exhausted, Don’t know if I can make the whole game.

    Trout was Hooked hahaha.

  115. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    SH*T.

  116. Against All Odds May 29th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Crap

  117. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    I knew this would happen after the Yanks failed to score once again….

  118. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Bad call by ump costs us three runs.

  119. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    ugh

  120. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    @#$^!

  121. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Cmon Jete, that’s a routine grounder..

  122. jacksquat May 29th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Can’t go up there against Pujols.

  123. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    I can’t stand Pujols. He seems like a jerk that is obsessed with himself.

  124. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Albert’s swing is so good….he keeps the bat in the zone forever for a power guy.

  125. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Straw what bad call? I missed it

  126. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    What?

  127. Marcus May 29th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Out

    He was out.

  129. ac1 May 29th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    come on people. did anyone not think that after they left bases loaded AGAIN, that the Angels would not score the very next half inning? its basically the same story every day.

  130. blake May 29th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    he’s out…..terrible

  131. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Great job ump

    not really even close…..

  136. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Tar-
    Andy got squeezed on strike three on Trout.

  137. Pat M. May 29th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    andy is on the ropes

  138. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    “Bad call by ump costs us three runs.”

    That’s the reality.

    The Yankees will get those runs back, but the point is that Andy shouldn’t have to get more than 3 outs per inning.

    **********

    I’m just putting this out there because it’s on my mind. There doesn’t have to be anything to it, but I’m still wondering if Stewart calls a better game than Martin. There is probably no right or wrong to that, but it appears that our pitchers do better with Stewart in there. Anecdotal more than anything on my part.

    We know Andy isn’t someone who likes to call his own games.

    Okay, I said it. minor league grrr…

  141. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Gonna be tough to get three off Haren, have to just chip away at his pitch count and hope to knock him out of the game.

  142. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Straw

    Thanks, I’ll check it out.

  143. mick May 29th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    what did that ump see?

  144. Marcus May 29th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    With today’s tech, there is no reason for all these calls to be blown.

  145. blake May 29th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    The pitch to Trout was really borderline…..it was probably a ball by a hair to be honest

  146. luis May 29th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Trish,

    Stewart frames the pitches better than Martin and has quicker release on the throws.

  147. ac1 May 29th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Gonna be tough to get three off Haren, have to just chip away at his pitch count and hope to knock him out of the game.

    ___________

    Especially when they are 1-33 withbases loaded and 0-everything with RISP….
    Guess we need 4 solo homeruns here….

  148. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    I can’t wait until this series is over. Nothing ever goes right for the Yanks in this ballpark.

  149. luis May 29th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    Predictable

  150. mick May 29th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    angels a hot team…patient hitters…good team, could get a WC.

  151. blake May 29th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    when Ibanez hits one ….he hits it.

  152. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Raul. Hope he packed a lunch to eat while he’s on second.

  153. luis May 29th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Ibanez is a pleasure to see….chapeau!!

  154. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Scrape together a run here.

  155. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

  156. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    “Great job ump”

    “He was out”

    “Baseball need replay”

    “F-ing mlb umps suck.”

    But the blind thief Selig couldn’t care less about that. Just like he couldn’t care less about the unbalanced schedule and the “fairness” of certain teams having to play each other multiple times and the exhaustion factor at the end of the season for some and not others because of it.

    There is a definite place in baseball hell waiting for Selig. Turd.

  157. Hassey May 29th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    On the bright side, this is my excuse to go to sleep early. The AL this year is so strangely tight that I’d never be surprised to wake up and hear there were 5 lead changes, but the Yanks won’t score inane here and business as usual

  158. blake May 29th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    same approach as last time Swish….

  159. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    luis, the baseball Gods have a sense of humor too.

    Just hang on. Yankees will take this game.

  160. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

  162. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Wow, a RISP RBI with only one out!

  163. Marcus May 29th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    RISP!

  164. blake May 29th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    nice work

  165. luis May 29th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Ok we got one back, let’s keep chipping away..

  166. ac1 May 29th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    whoa whoa whoa…. stop spoiling the fans with hits like that swish

  167. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Things don’t have to happen on lohud’s schedule. The game is 9 innings. Enjoy every moment of it and anticipate good things. They’ll come.

  168. jackamir May 29th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Lets get some back. The Angels are much better than their record. Swish its a start….

    Small steps. Plenty of game left…

  172. luis May 29th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    To be fair, he tried to go the other way. That’s a start.

  173. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    RIP Doc Watson. Great man, unbelievable guitar player.

  174. sunny615 May 29th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Can Martin use any of his millions to buy himself a hit?

  175. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    “Small steps. Plenty of game left…”

    AMEN!

  176. Hassey May 29th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Did Andy change his workout routine? He looks beefier

    for a moment earlier this year, it looked like we were poised to take the season series from this Angels team

  177. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    “Can Martin use any of his millions to buy himself a hit?”

    Awww sunny, you should have been around last night. You would have been high-fiving Russell. He really did some nice things.

    To be fair, Curtis, Robby, Tex, and Chavez are hitless tonight also. Haren is a fairly good pitcher, you know.

  178. matt1766 May 29th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Cant stand that every time I turn the TV on the Yankees are losing. This team is just soft.

    Really glad they traded a catcher that could hit because we had s many catchers

  179. yankeefeminista May 29th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Cano would be a helluva QB.

  180. jackamir May 29th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    I would never throw Pujols a high fastball. He needs to be pitched around and drill Trumbo & Trout….Get the Angels out of their comfort zone…

  181. Pat M. May 29th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    not too crazy about sitting this high up on the rail. never had a fear of heights until the past few years. i could never do the monsta seats at fenway. 3 bp balls that look like new.

  182. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    That was a strike.

  183. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Nice shut down inning there.

    Gives us a chance to chip away some more at the deficit.

  184. Hassey May 29th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Amen to trisha’s amen…hey, waft some of that incense and peppermint over here, would ya yogini?

  185. blake May 29th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    good bounce back by Andy….lets get him some runs

  186. muwarriorsfan May 29th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Watching Trout singlehandedly demolish the Yanks, it makes you realize just how rotten a group of minor league players the Yanks have. None have the guts or talent to make a nice contribution to the major league team.

  187. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    YF, I will not indulge it. I will not indulge it. I mentioned earlier how nice last night went despite the infestation. When nobody bothers, it does seem to dissipate.

  188. Tar May 29th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    :D

  189. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Jack Cust has 5 HR in ast 19 AB. Branyan also activated today. Any chance we see these guys if Brett’s injury lingers? Their bats are preferable to Wise.

  190. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    BOOOOO!!!!!!

  191. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    I figured Jeter wouldn’t see all fastballs again this at bat. Haren going off speed this time around on the Captain.

  192. muwarriorsfan May 29th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    Cano has to be the most overrated player in baseball.

    He’s nothing but a big, fat choke with RISP.

  193. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    You think we are disappointed in our season so far? How do you think they feel in Detroit?

  194. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Cust was on my fantasy team several seasons ago. When they played at McCoy, I wanted to tell him that but it sounds like it could be a left-handed compliment, so I didn’t do it.

  195. TheBigOut May 29th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Most NL Pitchers hit better than Martin but Girardi doesnt care.. Nothing strange really since Martin and Girardi are the same player. Andy likes throwing to Stewart but Girardi isnt intuitive enough to see that.

    I feel bad for Andy, every game he pitches our offense gives him absolutely zero run support,

  196. UnKnown May 29th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    So tonight is our turn to send the Angels to heartbreak hotel.

  197. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    “You think we are disappointed in our season so far? How do you think they feel in Detroit?”

    I’m not at all disappointed in our season so far. Teams slump. We got our first one over with.

  198. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Why don’t they show Girardi everytime Andy gets squeezed on the corner? I am tired fo Scioscia cam.

  199. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    If we have to do it with the long ball tonight, so be it.

    Haren got away with that mistake to Arod

  203. Captain Clutch May 29th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Haren is making it look easy tonight. When you throw a ton of off speed pitches 99% of the time you are going to be successful against the Yanks lineup.

  204. TheStraw May 29th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    Tar-

    Wish I had that faith, but this stadium is a jinx for us. The angels have won something like 8 walk offs against the Yanks here.

    While Carlton was great, the best lefty pitcher ever, in his prime years was Sandy Koufax.

    You set me up for this:

    If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.

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

    LMAO!! There you go again!! No doubt about Koufax, i just didn’t get to see him. That’s why i said that i have seen That 1,2 punch of Drisdale and Koufax must have been a sight to see.

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

    Ask the Yanks of 63′ World Series. I think we scored 4 runs.

  209. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 29th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Those Ranger antlers have nothing on that horrific rally monkey. And the oppressive Angel’s fan who used to come here and yell “RALLY MONKEY” when we were playing the Angels and that stupid little thing would show up on the screen. I don’t have any propensity for violence but I swear I could have broken the jaw of that Angels fan.

  210. luis May 29th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    “Haren is making it look easy tonight. When you throw a ton of off speed pitches 99% of the time you are going to be successful against the Yanks lineup.”

    That’s because they just aren’t that good. Do well against the crappy A’s and get the sh** kicked out of them by the Angels. They’ll win 2, then lose 3, then win a few and lose a few. Might finish 5 games over .500 at the end of the season.

    And every starter has a good game and then a rotten game, like Pettitte tonight.

    Yanks are almost always psyched out and intimidated by the Angels and are beaten before the game even begins…like tonight.

    Angels have learned very well how to pitch us. Lots of off speed stuff early and hard stuff late in the game from the pen.

    ( others have too )

    Maybe if we keep it close, we can hit a dinger or two.

    Yeah, it’s always somebody else’s fault when the Yanks play like dog crap.

    The Angels are just dominating the Yanks, as they seem to do almost every season. The umpiring has zero to do with it.

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

    That’s why he should stay back and go oppo…Wait until he can determine that he can drive it..If he commits early like he did, he is going to roll over and end up hitting a weak grounder. I think the problem is that they seem to have this “Jeckell and Hyde” personality at the plate, the moment they see some people on base they switch the all or nothing approach and start swinging for the fences.

  361. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    Luis, it’s a good pitch, but Grandy’s overly aggressive, big swing, and tries to pull the ball mostly. Think he should be more patient vs. Haren.

    “What about your personal attack on Trisha, calling her Bagdad Bob.”

    If I said she looked like Baghdad Bob, that would be a personal attack. Or calling someone an ***hole (which I was called) is a personal attack.

    But calling her out for being literally willfully blind to what is going on is hardly a personal affront, imo.

    And I’m about as far from a liberal as you can get. I believe people should be held accountable for their actions, just as I feel the Yanks players should be held accountable for their horrible play and Cashman should be held accountable for the horrible roster construction.

    Straw and jackamir – there is nothing to apologize for! I used to call out that sock puppet all the time. But then I didn’t bother anymore. Not worth my time. But been there, done that. So I understand.

    But I have a song for you that I think you’ll appreciate. I dedicate it to the trolls and the crying regular.

    :)

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

    I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while
    But the Yanks lost last night, and I am filled with fright
    And tonight I am so low.
    Though you cheered them on, it’s just a con
    So I’ve been crying and I’m blue,
    You still believe, it makes me want to heave.
    So I am crying, crying, crying, crying, crying
    It’s hard to understand but your cheery land
    Can start me crying.

    I thought that I could boo and boo
    But you won’t cry, it’s true
    I hate you even more than I did before
    But trisha, what can I do
    For you won’t agree, so I’ll always be
    Crying and so blue, crying and so blue

    Yes, you’re their pawn, so from this moment on
    I’ll be crying, crying, crying, crying
    Yeah, crying, crying and so blue-oo-oo-oo-ooooo!

    The Melk Men are campaigning to send Melky to the All-Star Game in KC:

    Always bad luck, never just crappy hitting!

    Angels don’t seem to be having problems finding holes or rocks over the fence.

    Maybe the Yanks just flat-out stink and can’t compete with the Angels?

    And duh, when a pitcher throws one ball and three strikes to a batter, it’s not a walk. Unless the umpire calls some of the strikes balls that is.

    But you were too busy sucking lemons to notice. Not a problem. Everyone else here did.

    Now go chase yourself, wouldya? That way you won’t be forced to watch the rest of this dreadful game that will keep you up tonight, I’m sure. If they lose tonight, Yankee season is OVAH!

  399. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    Do you even watch baseball? That was a very difficult play on a hard hit ball than Bourjos made look somewhat routine. A great defensive play. Three of them on Swish tonight. It’s not bad hitting by Swish. Others maybe, but not him tonight. Jones AB was a waste.

  400. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    Pettitte pitched a good game. Bad calls by the ump cost him some runs. Three, I think it was.

    But he battled. Andy is the real deal. We all know it. Well, we with eyes do anyway.

    :)

  401. DaveD May 30th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    Yesterday was the game to win – Weaver out of the game in the 1st inning and scoring 8 runs

    But thanks to Phil Useless, we lost that one. Now we have 5 ERA Nova on the mound to avoid a sweep. Good times.

  402. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 12:20 am

    “Do you even watch baseball? That was a very difficult play on a hard hit ball than Bourjos made look somewhat routine. A great defensive play.”

    That was a GREAT play?!?!

    He caught it on the casual run. Looked like an out from the moment it left the bat. But I will certainly give you that it was a 100% better AB than what Jones came up with.

  417. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 12:26 am

    If I was a beat reporter, I would certainly not let Girardi get away with the ridiculous answers he gives and wouldn’t let Tex get away with the crap he spouts. Would I use more tact? Sure, but the comments from the players and manager are so out and out comical, that they need to be called out.

    And I’ve coached high school baseball before and now currently coach girls softball. BTW, those girls play with more intensity than anyone on the Yanks.

    Wang, then Nova will probably kick butt. You know how it is when you think certain games are the more sure bets and others are probably a loss. And then the games turn the theory on its head.

    Were you here yesterday? You would have thought Hughes threw a no-hitter the way he was getting praised for “battling” through an unlucky 5 innings while giving up 11 hits and 7 runs.

    Then people were actually elated that Hughes got a ND, as if he deserved one. It was quite astounding. Though Andy deserves much more of the benefit of the doubt than Hughes does, this place can turn a 1.1 IP, 10 H, 10 ER performance into a “learning” experience.

    And may I remind all of you who are gushing to the heavens over the Angels that they were 8-15 in the month of April. Were you all convinced then?

    I agree with you about some of their answers. Girardi’s comments in particular can be very irritating at times. If you were to put them to task more for that, fine. I still maintain that if you couldn’t say something to someone’s face though, you shouldn’t say it at all. I think you are out of line with the way you talk about some of these players.

    You aren’t here to contribute anything positive. If it is 100% negative, you should be banned. Obviously everyone will say negative things from time to time. But you are 100%. Other message boards would ban you. You can now spout your crap about you have every right to post here, it’s your opinion. Go ahead. But you do nothing but whine, it adds nothing, and you’re lucky this place isn’t moderated more than it is. Actually you’re unlucky, because you’re wasting your time & emotion.

    Nova’s xFIP is 3.62.

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

    This….Meaning that his numbers are deceiving…They should be much better than what they are.

    I don’t really believe that. If you throw lots of bad pitches, and Nova has, they are going to get hit harder and you will have a higher babip against. It’s not just automatically bad luck if a pitcher has a high babip.

  455. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 12:30 am
    And 4-2 adds up to six, so not sure why you read it that way.

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

    U R right, I did misread !

  456. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    This sucks but I can’t see the end. Must run!

    See ya’ll tomorrow! Go Yankees.

    “Were you here yesterday? You would have thought Hughes threw a no-hitter the way he was getting praised for “battling” through an unlucky 5 innings while giving up 11 hits and 7 runs.”

    IMO, fans have invested so much hope in Hughes being a phenom that they can’t look objectively at his performance. The guy (and Joba) were untouchable at one time. The Yankees could have had almost anyone in a trade package for either one of them. To see that Hughes is really just a number 5 guy at best is a pretty rude awakening and huge disappointment. I just think his stuff plays so much better as a reliever and it’s folly to force him into a starter’s role when his secondary pitches and mental makeup are so weak. It’s going to be equally hard to come to grips with the fact that the Killer B’s are Killer Busts.

    This game got away from NY in the 3rd inning. As many expected, leaving them loaded would come back to haunt us at the end of the night.

    And then to top it off they came up with a 3 spot.

    luis,

    What should he do with Trout, the unstoppable fish?

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

    He is one hell of a player…In his case i would stay away, he showed tonight that he can handle the inside pitch very well.

  460. darbodla May 30th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Better pitching, better manager = better team. Guess who.

  461. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 12:39 am

    “hard to believe that the bombers came into town on a 5 game roll. they need a gardner or 2 . sad to say this but what i’ve seen the past 2 nights is very unsettling. club looks old”

    Pat M – any team looks old when it isn’t winning a few games. The Angels looked ancient in April.

    I can’t imagine being unsettled over a few games. The Yankees looked pretty damned young last week!

    And they’ll look pretty damned young again I’m sure.

    Perspective.

    4 NYY – Looks like you would be right. Yankees will take tomorrow’s game and go into the day off on Thursday feeling good about things.

    Just like last Thursday.

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

    Everyone has a guess or prediction, I just hate playing these guys. They have our number and are confident they can handle us.

  466. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 12:40 am

    The Yankees know how to battle right to the end.

    GO YANKS!!!!

  467. UnKnown May 30th, 2012 at 12:40 am

    One more base runner. I would love to see that tying run up there here in the 9th.

  468. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 12:41 am

    Boy, that Trout is a real bum ! LOL

  469. UnKnown May 30th, 2012 at 12:41 am

    Trout needs to go and pick up a couple of powerball tickets.

  470. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 12:41 am

    I suppose that was a routine play too?

  471. Pat M. May 30th, 2012 at 12:41 am

    come on guys let’s make a game out of it. alex !

    No doubt that he has to keep the ball down. But every pitcher is bound to make mistakes, he has had very bad luck as well, the BABIP eventually will come down

    “5 runs in 7+ innings is a “very good game”?????????????????”

    Were you here yesterday? You would have thought Hughes threw a no-hitter the way he was getting praised for “battling” through an unlucky 5 innings while giving up 11 hits and 7 runs.

    Then people were actually elated that Hughes got a ND, as if he deserved one. It was quite astounding. Though Andy deserves much more of the benefit of the doubt than Hughes does, this place can turn a 1.1 IP, 10 H, 10 ER performance into a “learning” experience.
    ———————————

    I think it was more that earlier in the season he would have been out of the game by the 4th. 2 of the 3 runs after the 1st were more bad luck for him or good luck for the Angels. He pitched into the 6th and could have in my opinion finished the inning. He was at 87 pitches with 1 out at the time. The runner on base got on on a infield single he didn’t field well. So no one is saying he pitched great yesterday. Especially the first inning. But what he was able to do after and go that extra 2 or 3 innings did save the bullpen had Andy struggled tonight.

  475. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 12:42 am

    COME ON ALEX!

  476. TD213 May 30th, 2012 at 12:42 am

    Watching the Angels, it is apparent how much more talented they are than us

    I still think by the end of the year, TX/LAA will be by far the two best teams. Detroit should be third. TB will probably win the East once their pitching gets in order

    Yanks and Sox will make it tough, but I don’t think either has the talent to beat out LAA for the final WC or TB for the division.

  477. UnKnown May 30th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Robbie gets a chance for revenge from the 3rd inning.

  478. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Well, it doesn’t lack drama!!!!

    COME ON ROBBY!!!!!!

  479. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Ok, Robbie, you can make it right…..

  480. luis May 30th, 2012 at 12:43 am

  482. TheBigOut May 30th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Have been away all week, first time on the forum tonight since and its the same immature people complaining and crying about people posting what they dont agree with.

    Heres an idea, go play with action figures or your dolls. You can make them say whatever you want and can stop the perpetual bashing of posters that you aren’t “teamed”up with.

    Its really a shame that a good many of you people have completely ruined this forum by driving the majority of the quality posters away. The sad part is you dont even know its your fault because you’re too busy blaming others and not looking at your own self.

    Any beginning psycotherapist could use this place to confirm what they’ve read in “psychoanalysis for dummies”. Its beyond pathetic.

    Just drive the rest away so you csn post by yourself and be happy. Good luck with that!

  483. Pat M. May 30th, 2012 at 12:43 am

    tying run to the plate. that’s all you can ask for

  484. muwarriorsfan May 30th, 2012 at 12:44 am

    “No doubt that he has to keep the ball down. But every pitcher is bound to make mistakes, he has had very bad luck as well, the BABIP eventually will come down”

    What on earth is with everyone’s obsession with “bad luck” in explaining the Yanks ineptitude?

    Luck has nothing to do with poor play, imo.

  485. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 12:44 am

    Cano needs a shrink right now.

  486. luis May 30th, 2012 at 12:44 am

  488. TD213 May 30th, 2012 at 12:44 am

    Cano has been one of our worst hitters this year. We would have been far better off if this were Ibanez, Grandy, Chavez, Jones or even Chris Stewart.

  489. igotid88 May 30th, 2012 at 12:44 am

    Cano proves ONCE AGAIN that he’s the most overrated player (by a gigantic margin) in all of baseball.

    His carriage has turned into a rotten pumpkin.

    He’s literally now just a poor hitter with RISP.

  492. igotid88 May 30th, 2012 at 12:45 am

  493. I Am Winning May 30th, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Very disappointing series so far.

    They had vast opportunities and nothing to show for it. It’s deja vu all over again.

  494. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Yankees lose.

    Let’s take them all out back & ****ing shoot them all.

    That would put a smile on some peoples’ face right?

    After all, it’s a baseball game.

    Later.

    Cano is as clutchless as they come. He is a buffoon who gets himself out half the time. Pull your head out of your *** Robinson.

  499. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Luis, Nova has also been unhittable at times. He is still evolving and integrating the changeup has contributed to his HR numbers. I agree about his BABIP coming down.

  500. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 12:48 am

    “Luck has nothing to do with poor play, imo.”

    Well, the baseball gods beg to differ with you. The best players fail seven of ten times. The average fail eight of ten. If you think luck doesn’t account for some of the difference between a good player and a great player, you really don’t know much about mathematics. Nor have you seen Crash Davis soliloquy in Bull Durham.

  501. Dill Pickler May 30th, 2012 at 12:50 am

    The season is 1/3 over and our 3-4 hitters are on pace for 63 and 66 rbis. That is pathetic.

  502. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 12:51 am

    “Bases loaded full of Yankees is a pitchers dream”

    :)

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

    And the same kinds of laments were heard from Angel fans when the Yanks schooled the Angels at the Stadium in April.

    Only the scores were a lot more lopsided when the Yanks schooled the Angels.

    It’s two games, not the end of the world.

    Turn zee page, and look forward to zee next game!
