TIME/TV: 10:05 p.m., YES Network and ESPN2

WEATHER: Not looking forward to Detroit, let’s put it that way.

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

WATCH OUT FOR BROOMS: The Yankees have been swept twice this season, both on the road (three games in Tampa to open the season, and two games in Toronto earlier this month). This series marks the second time this season the Yankees have lost the first two games of a three-game set.

AVOID THE BROOMS: The last time the Yankees were swept in a series of three-or-more games immediately after sweeping a series of three-or-more games was July 2009 heading into the All-Star break. They went 3-0 at Minnesota, then were swept in three games here at Angel Stadium.

TOUGH NIGHT: Robinson Cano went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts last night. It was just the 20th time in his career he failed to record a hit in a game in which he had at least five at-bats. It was just the seventh time he had such a game and struck out twice. He has struck out twice in a game six times this season, three of which have come against the Angels, including each of the first two games of this series.

UPDATE, 10:22 p.m.: Jeter moves to cover second base because Trout is running, Callaspo shoots a single through the resulting hole in the left side of the infield. The lesson: Don’t plunk a speedy leadoff hitter.

UPDATE, 10:40 p.m.: Runners at the corners with one out, Chavez grounds to first for an inning-killing 3-6-3 double play.

UPDATE, 10:58 p.m.: Well the Yankees have hit a home run, so at least we now know it’s possible for them to win this game. Granderson’s three-run shot has put them in front 3-1 in teh third.

UPDATE, 11:02 p.m.: There goes Cano’s eighth of the year and it’s now 5-1 Yankees. He really crushed that one.

UPDATE, 11:28 p.m.: So it’s going to be this kind of game, huh? A two-run homer by Trumbo has pulled the Angels back within 5-3. Anyone else have the feeling we haven’t seen the last run of the night?

UPDATE, 11:32 p.m.: And there’s Mike Trout with a two-run double. That kid really looks special. Tons of speed and he can really hit. We’re tied at 5. Get comfortable, folks.

UPDATE, 12:00 a.m.: Finally a ball that Bourjos couldn’t track down. The Angels center fielder couldn’t quite catch a deep drive by Ibanez, and it went off the wall for a standup triple. Swisher followed with a sac fly and the Yankees have a 6-5 lead. Nova is back out for the sixth needing to keep the Angels from another big inning.

UPDATE, 12:37 a.m.: There’s a bit of redemption for Wade. After allowing a walkoff home run two nights ago, he just struck out Howie Kendrick to leave runners at the corners in the seventh. It’s still 6-5.

    Go SuperNova! Go Yanks!

  2. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Go Yankees! Go Nova! or Vato or El Hombre!!

  3. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Keep the freakin’ ball down!

  4. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Wow Chad- Yankees to face Dan Haren and that nasty splitter again. :)

  5. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Go Yankees!!!!

  6. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Giving Nova an early lead could help.

  7. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    How will Trout kill us tonight

  8. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Nova-It’s all about location, location, location tonight.

  9. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Go Jeet!

  10. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    ok that was quick lol

  11. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Is this Haren guy related to Dan haren? he looks like his latino cousin! ;)

  12. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    Good swing from Grandy

  13. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    Great piece by Grandy there….he needs to do that more….his swing should allow him to let the ball travel deep like that and go the other way more

  14. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Hello everyone

  15. LGY May 30th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    What you are falling to understand is that what they are doing is subjective. For the Yankees, I trust my subjective, or GB’s or Pat M or Jerk ( ) etc, more than any one at BIS. You can’t even tell me if they are at the game or watching video for crying out loud.

    ———

    Are you really comparing the subjectivity involved in evaluating what zone a ball was hit in to the subjectivity in making evaluations about a player’s ability? Subjectivity is not just a catch all term that you can throw out there without regard to the levels involved.

    Your brain simply cannot handle that much information in an orderly manner without extreme bias and error being involved.

    MAYBE, If you want to watch every single play and write down your observations you may have something, but there’s no way I’m trusting your memory. Certainly not GB’s memory!

  16. TheHansons May 30th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Let’s go Alex!

  17. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    What’s up luis? I hope the Yanks are due for a win tonight!!

  18. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Hey Luis

  19. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    None of the people on the BIS ‘our team’ page are the video scouts.

    In addition to coming up with sabermetric stats, Baseball Info Solutions hires “video scouts” (for the most part, former high school and college players) to chart games from television
    viewing

    The reason for this was that in the eyes of multiple viewers (video scouts rotate so not to watch the same team or player too often)

    http://espn.go.com/blog/sweets.....mark-simon

    They watch game tape.

  20. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Hey Luis

    :D

  21. igotid88 May 30th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Damn No Swing

  22. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    There isn’t much subjective about a video scout noting where a ball lands. The video scouts do not decide who is good, the sum of all the data does.

  23. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Nice call ump. :mad:

  24. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    gotta get help there…..no reason not to…..he didn’t go I don’t think.

  25. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    looked like a check according to espn

  26. Benny Blanco May 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    great call by the dum(p)bire

  27. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    I really hate check swing calls….it’s probably the most subjective call in baseball and the umpires just guess….they have no idea.

  28. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    another ump with his head up his butt….
    but dont worry, mlb is taking care of it (eye roll)

  29. LGY May 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Rather than attending each game live, BIS video scouts record information from satellite video feeds of each game, allowing them to rewind and review each play as often as necessary to record accurate information.

    http://www.tangotiger.net/wiki....._Solutions

    There isn’t much secrecy. You just haven’t looked for the information.

  30. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Jerk and whoever I suggest the previous conversation be kept to the previous thread.

  31. muwarriorsfan May 30th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    RISP RISP RISP RISP

    Cano stinks

  32. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    when is the last time cano didnt strike out with runners in scoring position?

  33. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Cano slumping lately. Hope he picks it up again soon.

  34. ctyankeefan. May 30th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Has a HP ump ever given a reason why they didn’t check with the 1b or 3b ump on a check swing? Id like to hear a good explanation.

  35. Benny Blanco May 30th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    RISP! FAIL!

  36. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Made Cano look bad-changeup-the nemesis to Yankees hitting from left side?

  37. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    It once seemed like it was how A-Rod goes, so goes the Yankees. Now, it’s as Cano goes, so goes the Yankees. They need more quality offensive depth.

  38. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    there should be a rule that check swing calls MUST be the 1st or 3rd base umps call….

  39. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Hi guys!!..I think we are winning tonight Kev…At least i hope so ;)

  40. Nick in SF May 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Don’t look now, but the Rangers are making it a closer game.

  41. sunny615 May 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Ick. That stunk.

  42. GreenBeret7 May 30th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Trenton pulls of 3-2 win, Tampa lost 5-4 when Pinder blew the save.

    http://www.milb.com/gameday/in.....x_treaax_1

  43. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Rangers coming back. It’s now 17-1 Mariners

  44. Dill Pickler May 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    ladies and gentlemen, your 2012 Idiot of the Year: Robinson Cano.

    Cano approaches hitting as if he has to swing at every pitch.
    When you continue to make the same mistake over and over and over and over, and getting the same result, yet refuse to make an adjustment, you are an idiot.

  45. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Trout gets hit

  46. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Somewhere JobaTipsHisCap is happy

  47. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Wow!! Intentional?

  48. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Trout just got Hamelized!

  49. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    well we left a runner in scoring position so now they will come back and score three or four….

  50. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    lol, someone in here the other day said the Yanks should peg Trout. You got your wish…

  51. GreenBeret7 May 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Time to turn Trout into a minnow.

  52. TheHansons May 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Sux won so I had to check the standings. The AL East has 5 times bunched over .520. A 2.5 game spread from top to bottom.

  53. jackamir May 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Cano is lost. He needs to get home to the friendly Yankee Stadium. Good message sent to Trout.

  54. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    “Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Somewhere JobaTipsHisCap is happy”

    Yes lol

  55. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    This could be ugly.

  56. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    amazing. 1st to 3rd, two hits in the same inning….

    The Angels can do it all!

  57. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    What a great piece of hitting.

  58. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Angels are killing the Yankees this series in a lot of different ways. They are just one step ahead in everything so far. Yanks always have a tough time in this stadium though.

  59. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    beautiful hit and run….ugh

  60. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    I hate it, but that’s good situational hitting

  61. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    “Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Somewhere JobaTipsHisCap is happy”

    Yes lol

    ——————-

    I’m surprised he isn’t on I was expecting to see “Trout is annoying”

  62. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    I see tonight has started the same way last night ended…..

  63. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    No location-Martin come out and talk to him.

  64. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    “Good message sent to Trout.”

    what’s that….put you on base so you can score

  65. GreenBeret7 May 30th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    They didn’t hit Trout on purpose.

  66. beedogs May 30th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Nova off to his usual garbage start.

    Win 5 in a row, lose 5 in a row. This is a .500 ballclub.

  67. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    I blame Hughes.

  68. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Bases juiced no outs smh

  69. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Nova is pitching himself to AAA. He has been dreadful and maybe it would do him some good to show that you have to produce to stay here.

  70. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Just great……get morales, or this is going to be a long night…

  71. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    AAO,

    lol ya that sounds about right…

  72. sunny615 May 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Good job nova. Now stop your Hughes impression.

  73. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    that time he friggin asked for help?

  74. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Geeze Louise!

    GO NOVA!

    GO YANKS!!!

  75. beedogs May 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    domination so far from our 7th starter

  76. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Come on Nova, get your act together

  77. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    limit the damage here Nova….give us a chance

  78. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    I hope he’s not hurt.

  79. randy l. May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    “Rather than attending each game live, BIS video scouts record information from satellite video feeds of each game, allowing them to rewind and review each play as often as necessary to record accurate information.”

    cool, do they have special grow lights so they get their quota of sunshine. :)

  80. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Come this is the time for a k

  81. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    One…batter…at..a…time.

  82. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    For the love of god, throw the slider here….

  83. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Well, that’s good.

  84. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    OKAY!

  85. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Niice, now need a DP.

  86. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    I blame Hughes.

    —————–

    Some ppl blamed him for the loss last night. No joking either

  87. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    He did!

  88. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    great pitch….big pitch.

  89. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    good k, big pitch there

  90. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    “Some ppl blamed him for the loss last night. No joking either”

    Somehow that doesn’t surprise me.

  91. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    no one is covering second? really?

  92. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    I’ll take that…now get out without further damage.

  93. muwarriorsfan May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Nova is another guy who really isn’t very good, but the fans desperately want him to be.

    IMO, he looks like a AAA guy.

  94. igotid88 May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    He seems to get better with risp.

  95. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    I just rewinded that K call me Tar the “video scout”.

  96. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    If we get out of this inning only one run down, that isn’t bad.

  97. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    if they can get out of this with one run that would be awesome

  98. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Uno mas.

  99. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    I’ll take it.

  100. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Bullet dodged….

  101. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    THERE YOU GO!

    Good job Ivan!!!

  102. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    All things considered, pretty good.

    Now stop playing like dogs.

  103. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    i guess getting out of it with 1 run is something…

  104. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    I’d like to see Trout vs Gardner in a 60

  105. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Va Vato!

  106. TheHansons May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Hate Trout.

  107. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    That was a stupid throw home. Swisher is lucky that Nova got out of that and the runners didn’t score.

  108. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Nice comeback Nova. Someone (cano) should have been covering second. Heads up play by Pujols

  109. TheHansons May 30th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Eh, could’ve been a lot worse.

  110. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Good comeback, this could have been a lot worse. I didn’t understand cutting the throw home, especially since nobody was covering 2nd.

  111. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Trout disappoints me because he is from New Jersey like me but apparently he grew up a Phillies fan. Sad stuff.

  112. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    I just rewinded call me a “video scout”

    Do this 1 million times for every play of every game of an entire season and collect all the data, then I would be impressed by this joke.

  113. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    I’m not particularly fond of trout, but this Trout I like. Can’t wait to get some speed back in the lineup. Get back soon-Gardy and Nunez.

  114. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Nice to see some breaks go our way for a change……

  115. Bronx Jeers May 30th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    He’s from South Jersey.

  116. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    igotid88 May 30th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    He seems to get better with risp.

    ———————

    So he’s the opposite of our line-up :)

  117. I Am Winning May 30th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Does anyone know the MLB pitching stats of ERA per innings? Or a website that I can locate them?

  118. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    “He’s from South Jersey.”

    Drafted with the comp pick for Teixeira. OUCH.

  119. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Kevin, said the same yesterday. Luis and I agreed we hate Trout even more because of his Philly fandom. :)

  120. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Watching on ESPN2. Who’s the jacka** that is screaming near the broadcaster’s booth?

  121. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Jeers, that’s no excuse. ;)

  122. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    This Ibanez guy is really starting to grow on me….

  123. beedogs May 30th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    1 run ought to be enough.

  124. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    I don’t care what part of Jersey he’s from. He’s from my home state & he’s a Phillies fan. He sucks.

  125. igotid88 May 30th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Risky move there going to 3rd

  126. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Swish finally gets his hit:)

  127. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Go Ibanez!!

  128. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    holy crap, someone went 1st to 3rd on a single?
    and it was Ibanez?
    Raul is growing on me…

  129. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    yankeefem,

    I’m with you guys. He does look pretty damn good though.

    Yankees go first to third!!

  130. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Kevin, said the same yesterday. Luis and I agreed we hate Trout even more because of his Philly fandom. :)

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

    Right on! YF

  131. Bronx Jeers May 30th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    I hate when pitchers do their job and back up plays.

    They should stand there dumbfounded !

  132. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    would have been cool to have traded for Trumbo when they were rumored to have been shopping him around this winter…..I doubt they were ever serious about that though.

  133. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    This is where things go down hill. Man on 3rd…

  134. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Raul plays hard….

  135. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Bring that run in Chavy

  136. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    Anyone know how to make your computer screen resolution bigger? I leaned on something and the print is barely readable. But I can’t find any percent icon so I don’t know how to get it back to normal size.

    Thanks.

  137. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    The Angels should walk Chavez to load the bases if they really want to get out of this

  138. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    At least Chavy has real ABs. We should score this run.

  139. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    We’ll definitely get the run home.

  140. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Kevin-

    Now come on. If Trout was traded to the Yankees tonight after the game for Martin, you know he’d become an instant hero.

  141. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    “They should stand there dumbfounded !”

    Ala AJ. We’ve all seen that visual more than once.

  142. Bronx Jeers May 30th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Yankeefeminista,

    To me there’s like a mini Mason-Dixon line somewhere in central Jersey. And Trout’s from the wrong side. :wink:

  143. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Damn Scioscia has to control everything

  144. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    “At least Chavy has real ABs. ”

    in general he does….he goes up there with a plan and a real big league approach…..gives a good AB a high percentage of the time.

  145. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    “Anyone know how to make your computer screen resolution bigger?”

    Do you mean resolution or font size? If the latter, CTRL and + sign.

  146. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    But not this inning.

    Grr.

  147. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Well that sucked.

  148. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    of course that would happen

  149. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    You have to be kidding me

    The same BS night after night after night

  150. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    #$%@! Et tu, Chavy. Darn off speed stuff.

  151. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    I can’t recall a time in recent memory that I was so down on this team.

  152. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    not so great there though….RISP fail continues

  153. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Trader,

    LOL. So would Angels GM Jerry Dipoto in my book :)

  154. Benny Blanco May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    of course we hit into DP . of course!

  155. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Aargh. No speed kills!

  156. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    this is almost comical at this point

  157. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    rich, I think it’s resolution. Everything is smaller.

  158. beedogs May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    1 run will definitely be enough.

  159. matt1766 May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    WTF is wrong with these guys with a runner on 3rd and less than two outs. Jesus Christ my 10 year gets the run in there

  160. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    rich, thanks! I guess I meant font size.

    :)

  161. randy l. May 30th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    when lgy and jerkface say things like” collect the data” i imagine their eyes glazing over.

    it’s like when we were kids and hit a fastball in the sweet spot of the bat.

  162. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    But the binder played Chavez because he has better numbers against Santana, even though Nix has been swinging a better bat lately.

  163. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    The Yanks need a Mike Trout…..not that any team wouldn’t love to have a talent like that but I don’t even mean somebody that good…..they just need a spark….they need a young player to breathe some life into their lineup.

  164. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    well if recent history shows us anything, we leave runners in scoring position and the next half inning we come out and give up runs…..

  165. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    “rich, I think it’s resolution. Everything is smaller.”

    Right click on the desktop. Depending on your OS, some preferences option should take you to the screen to increase it.

    But try CTRL +

  166. sunny615 May 30th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    This offense is so potent!!

  167. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    Need Nunez and Gardner back, this team is dead slow….

  168. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    “…..they just need a spark…”

    Another thing Montero could have been saved for.

  169. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Too bad the Yanks don’t have any speed to beat out all of their groundballs. The Angels always hit the ball on the ground but they beat all of those out.

  170. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Heads up play by Arod

  171. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Blake-

    Right now I’d be happy with a healthy and productive Gardner.

  172. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Ibanez has truly turned into the gift that just keeps giving.

  173. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    “Need Nunez and Gardner back, this team is dead slow….”

    They could recall Cervelli too. At least he doesn’t pretend to be Babe Ruth every AB.

  174. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    well thats a relief

  175. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Really, I’m sick of hearing Montero’s name mentioned every five minutes. He has nothing to do with why the Yankees are struggling right now, and no one can say for sure if it would be different if he was here.

    Nice inning for Nova.

  176. matt1766 May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    I cant believe how many runs they Yankees leave out there. Where a fly out or a some other out will score a run. When does Kevin Long get called out . What the hell do we have a hitting coach for.

  177. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    What’s happened to Ibanez lately? He can field now. I like that guy. He plays to win.

  178. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    rich, I don’t know if you saw, but control + did it. Thank you so much. I’ve been trying to figure that out all day.

  179. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    I remember telling my dad that Melky Cabrera would be an All-Star one day. It could happen this year. My dad said he would be out of the league in 5 years. Ah, good times. Good times.

  180. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Rich, although Cervelli is wearing Babe Ruth’s number with the SWB Yankees…

  181. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Maybe the Yanks want to play the game this inning where they load the bases with no one out and don’t score. They seem to enjoy that one.

  182. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Trout disappoints me because he is from New Jersey like me but apparently he grew up a Phillies fan. Sad stuff.

    ——————–

    You try to be a good person and raise the young ones the right way but they go off and root for the wrong team. *Hangs head* These young kids man…they’re taking this thing straight to hell.

  183. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Okay, this silliness ends now. Yankees know how to play baseball. They are going to start showing it. Nova is going to pitch the way he knows how to, and the hitters are going to stop looking like little leaguers.

    OVER NOW.

    :shock:

  184. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    “Need Nunez and Gardner back, this team is dead slow….”

    They could recall Cervelli too. At least he doesn’t pretend to be Babe Ruth every AB.

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

    :D

  185. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    “Really, I’m sick of hearing Montero’s name mentioned every five minute”

    Oh well.

  186. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Time for Martin to show up and get on base.

  187. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Good, trisha.

  188. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    “Rich, although Cervelli is wearing Babe Ruth’s number with the SWB Yankees…”

    Hmmm.

  189. Wave Your Hat May 30th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Cervelli and Nunez. Love that defense.

    Actually, when it comes to those two distance makes the heart grow fonder.

  190. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Gardner and Nunez, Cervelli, even other younger players.
    Steve Pearce, Ronnier Mustelier, Melky Mesa, anyone….
    I mean if friggin Daniel Nava and Will Middlebrooks can be successful in Boston, we must have someone who can come up and be worthwhile.

  191. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    “What’s happened to Ibanez lately? He can field now. I like that guy. He plays to win.”

    Seriously. I think the baseball gods felt bad for us and so gave us Ibanez to cheer us up.

    :)

  192. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    YF,

    Your Cervelli post is even more ironic :D

  193. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    “You try to be a good person and raise the young ones the right way but they go off and root for the wrong team. *Hangs head* These young kids man…they’re taking this thing straight to hell.”

    LOL, you said it man. I mean what are they teaching these kids in south Jersey anyways? There’s a better team if you just go a little more north :)

  194. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    I think I’d rather see Cervelli starting than Martin, to tell you the truth.

  195. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Martin only has 1 hit on pitches down in the zone this season.

  196. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Good job Russell!

  197. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    They should probably make Martin take every pitch.

  198. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Martin has 1 hit down in the zone this season.

    The Yankees will score this inning

  199. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Atta boy Russell

  200. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    I think I’d rather see Cervelli starting than Martin, to tell you the truth.

    ____

    Seriously. What are we getting from Martin that we can’t get from Cervelli for $500,000?

  201. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Cervelli is a better hitter than Martin….he just can’t catch…or at least he wasn’t very good last year.

  202. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Could be, trish! ;)

  203. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    “Seriously. What are we getting from Martin that we can’t get from Cervelli for $500,000?”

    probably say the same for Stewart

  204. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    JF-The 1 hit for Martin down in the zone was from today’s RABs

  205. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    “What’s happened to Ibanez lately? He can field now. I like that guy. He plays to win.”

    Ibanez has a higher UZR than Gardner. :D

  206. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    They should probably make Martin take every pitch.

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

    I am on record saying “” don’t swing”n

  207. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    I am on record saying “” don’t swing”
    _

    Nice.

  208. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    They’re getting his pitch count up. That’s a good thing.

  209. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    How come Singleton comes up with such lucid thoughts about winning and losing, thoughts that never enter Gurardi’s mind or come out of his mouth. Maybe Kenny should manage.

  210. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    probably say the same for Stewart

    ___

    Is Austin Romine off the DL yet?
    Is there any chance he will be ready for next year?

  211. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    3-2, send Russell to avoid the DP….

  212. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    I still believe that the pitchers didn’t like pitching to Cervelli. He was in constant motion behind the plate.

  213. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    From what I’ve gathered they don’t really know what the deal with Romine is….

  214. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Is that the Yankees or the Angels batting??

  215. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Jete!

  216. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Hit and run. Atta boy, Jeet.

  217. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    nice, except Martin nearly fell rounding 2nd.

  218. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    :)

    DEM’S OUR YANKS

    Now let’s see them produce the way we know they can!

  219. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    OMG! A successfully executed hit and run!

  220. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Why Jeter should bat in the middle of the order.

  221. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    A HIT AND RUN!!!

  222. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Nice…But now is when things go down hill…

  223. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    From what I’ve gathered they don’t really know what the deal with Romine is….

    He is supposed to be out until atleast July with a serious back problem. No way they could have seen that coming!

  224. sunny615 May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Think the Yankees will score a run or two here?

  225. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    At least we have no outs. You almost have to try to fail to get a run in!

  226. matt1766 May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    oh god man on 3rd less than 2 outs

  227. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Granderson lay off the off speed crap

  228. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    From what I’ve gathered they don’t really know what the deal with Romine is….

    _____

    So what was once our biggest position depth in the minors is now nothing?

    No Montero, no Romine, three years at least until Sanchez?

  229. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Romine went to a back specialist and was supposed to be strengthening the back before even considering coming back. He could be down for the count. We’ll see.

  230. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    hey our own hit and run….that one wasn’t as by design because he had two strikes but works the same.

    Trader,

    wouldn’t surprise me about the pitchers and cervy

  231. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    That’s exactly what I said earlier today. The thing has grown legs. All we need is one of the guys to break the spell, and the walls will come tumbling down.

  232. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    At least we have no outs. You almost have to try to fail to get a run in!

    ____________________________

    Trish have you been watching lately? We know this is not a guaranteed run…

  233. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    “He could be down for the count.”

    And with him the decision-makers who thought they had catching depth.

  234. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    “So what was once our biggest position depth in the minors is now nothing?”

    lets just say it aint what it used to be.

  235. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Nice, Jeet!

  236. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    “Think the Yankees will score a run or two here?”

    I’m thinking yes. Two in scoring position. Here we go.

  237. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Heads up play from Jeter

  238. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    OMG a hit and run AND a stolen base in the same game?

    YAY!!!

  239. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    I like that. Walk, running on 3-2, hit, now a steal. More of that please.

  240. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:53 pm
    I still believe that the pitchers didn’t like pitching to Cervelli. He was in constant motion behind the plate.

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    Indeed. I referred to him as “the spaz” behind the plate.

  241. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Gone

  242. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    JF, might of seen it coming; he also had the inflamed disc problem in 2011.

    Yeah, baby!!!!!!

  243. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Go Granderson!!!

  244. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    DID IT!!!!

  245. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  246. igotid88 May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Yes! Grandy

  247. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Remember when they let kids like Jeter have a chance in the ML. Those were the days.

    We have like two or three hitters!

  248. luis May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    GRANDY!!!!

  249. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Crushed!

  250. Benny Blanco May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    man I sure wish Ausitn Jackson was my CF.

  251. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Yes, sirrreeee Grandy!!!!!

  252. UnKnown May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Sweet now we can win. Got the HR ball.

  253. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    GRANDY MAN

  254. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    I should have scolded them sooner. The Yankees know when I start to lose patience, the really need to pick up their game!

    :D

  255. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Romine is probably going thru a series of 3 epidural steroid injections spaced weeks apart. Hopefully he won’t need surgery.

    And that is why the Yankees need to sign Granderson to an extension!! :)

  256. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Curtis! Can’t strand em when you do that!

  257. blake May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    man that’s a big fly in this park….that was way back

  258. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    “I still believe that the pitchers didn’t like pitching to Cervelli. He was in constant motion behind the plate.”

    Things aren’t going so well with the catcher they supposedly looooove, so…`

  259. jackamir May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Finally I can breath again. Grandy your the man!!!!!

  260. Wave Your Hat May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    What’s Granderson thinking? Doesn’t he realize the Yanks need more small ball?

  261. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    JF, might of seen it coming; he also had the inflamed disc problem in 2011.

    Well yea, that was sarcasm. Betting on the catcher with the back problem over the better bat with the worse defense is proving to be a bad choice.

  262. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Granderson should definitely be batting 4th or 5th. Bat Arod 2nd and move Tex down. Back to back of Arod, Cano and Tex just isn’t getting the job done.

  263. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    speed on the bases can lead to results…..
    this is where we miss gardner and nunez.

  264. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    The spell has been broken. The Yankees turned back into princes.

    Now we can live happily ever after.

    It’s almost impossible to extend Cano and Granderson and field a deep team with their current development skills.

  266. Nick in SF May 30th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Randy Levine and Lonn Trost just high-fived, as another homer distracts the mind-numbed populace from the folly of the sub-optimal decision-makers.

    Let them eat longballs.

    Maybe Zoilo will now stay healthy and progress enough to get a look at some point. He has been picking up right where he left off since coming back from the DL a week ago.

    HBP, Alex.

  273. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    See that is a home run that no one could ever complain about. Great small ball type of offense to set it up, and Granderson brought them in. It is the best of both worlds.

  274. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    The Yanks have to do more damage in this inning. Otherwise they give Santana confidence and Nova will probably fall apart in the next inning.

I’d much rather shop Granderson than Cano…..you’d have to get a very good return before trading either of them though…..seeing as how they’d both be in their walk years though it’s tough to say if they’d get enough back.

    I mentioned a couple of months ago that if the Yanks were serious about this budget thing then they may should shop Granderson this winter just to see what they could get……the Yankees have to start thinking differently if they are going to stay within a set payroll number and they want to maximize their roster…..

    Martin is the most underrated player on this team and our most valuable asset. I wish he would call out his teamates more like He did when he said “everyone is swinging for the the 3 run homer with nobody on base”. Surely he doesnt ever do that!

    Pat M, that was so depressing. The killer is that we had that game. We were owning Colon, the way we always did, and then he went down. I think Wang was pitching that game for us, wasn’t he? Then that collision basically cost us the game.

    Karma for Clemens juicing. (And who knew Andy had used HGH? And Arod with his eventual confession.) We had a lot of infractions that the baseball gods don’t respect!

    Id love to see them keep cashman and lure Towers back to work with him….Cashman does some good things but they need a voice in the front office that has experience dealing with tighter payrolls….because even though the Yankees payroll is high….they don’t have much wiggle room under the coming soft cap so it’s similar to running on a lower payroll….they need someone who has success in that environment.

  371. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    luis, why do you call it one dimensional after that inning? There was certainly situational hitting there.

  379. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    blake,

    Cashman et al. have displayed terrible judgment in evaluating and developing young talent. I’d rather keep the proven thing than let his group muck things up even more.

    Now, if we get some new leadership, then I might consider it.

    Besides, Granderson is the epitome of a real Yankee. Talented and classy.

    Here we go…..

  383. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    How many HRs is that now for Nova?

  384. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Nova up in the zone once again. Girardi should have a short leash with him tonight.

  385. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    “Some personal against Cano?”

    I think I remember BigOut saying that he’s met Cano.

  386. jackamir May 30th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Trumbo is juicing…

  387. Wave Your Hat May 30th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Luis-

    Like I said, suit yourself. Cry over a five run inning if you like.

  388. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Oh cripes Ivan. Is this also something that has now grown legs, like Ted Lily’s 5th inning yips and Chuck Knoblauch’s errant throws? He needs a baseball exorcism.

  389. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    I havent’ seen video of Trumbo last year but he seems quieter this year…..very still….hands go straight back then straight to the ball….pretty clean movements ….dude has some real power. impressive.

  390. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    “Girardi should have a short leash with him tonight.”

    Who comes in?

  391. Bronx Jeers May 30th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Trumbo & Trout.

    Sounds like a bad 70′s cop show.

  392. Wave Your Hat May 30th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    What’s with Nova? He was ground ball machine last year.

  393. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Is it 12 homers? At least 5 are on that new grip changeup, but that was just a fat fastball.

  394. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    The damn walks will kill ya’ Don’t expect the Angels to stop here ! Nova has got to keep the ball down and away as much as possible. Way to many XBH’s. We usually hit Santana, but we have to pitch and hold them down.

    Oh, Hi gang !!!

  395. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    LeBron misses shot at buzzer, game going to OT.

  396. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    13 HR’s I think.

  397. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Blake-

    Probably have already seen the mlb 2013 team payroll commitments:

  398. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    I havent’ seen video of Trumbo last year but he seems quieter this year

    Last year he didnt walk much & struck out a bunch, and those numbers are the same this year but he is just hitting 90 points higher… Don’t know if its luck or he just figured something out.

    The player he was last year looked like a decent guy on a mid tier team, but not enough on base for a good team.

    Trumbo so far this year looks like an MVP.

  399. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Speaking of HR/9 innings, Phil Hughes is worst in all of baseball & Nova is 5th worst. Not good.

  400. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Wave, you got me. How many pitchers can serve up 12 Ks and lose the game.

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

    Hard to stay excited about that good inning they had when Nova comes back with this…

  402. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    What’s with Nova? He was ground ball machine last year.

    He is up in the zone with everything. IATMS had an article about it a week back. Last year he was down a lot more.

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

    Wave, less so in the second half when he was getting more K’s, likely throwing the slider more.

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

    Hi 4 NYY!

    We’re going to win this game. Just thought I’d tell ya.

    ;)

  405. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    I’ve avoiding commenting about trolling behavior, but I’m with Rich. Racial slurs, even hidden as jokes will not be tolerated. Chad will get you.

  406. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Trish don’t get too “high” on our runs until it’s the bottom of the ninth and we’re up by about 5.

    These guys just love to play us. Believe me, we’re gonna need more.

  407. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    I don’t know but Trumbo’s swing right now looks good…..it’s pretty short for a guy with his kind of power….and if he can acceptably play 1b, RF and 3B then that’s a pretty darn valuable guy

  408. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Everything the Angels do turns to gold

  409. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Really?

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

    “Hard to stay excited about that good inning they had when Nova comes back with this…”

    :(

    It’s so important for him to get himself right.

    I keep wondering if he’s playing injured, if his forearm is really healed, something.

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

    Good lord.

  412. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

  413. muwarriorsfan May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    This is a terrible baseball team.

    And Nova is just not any good.

  414. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Four run lead, shot to hell.

  415. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Everything up or down the middle.

  416. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Good young hitters rock. They need to learn that lesson (not that they should have to given the last 20 years).

  417. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    just a beautiful stroke by Trout….the youngsters are killing the yankes.

  418. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    well so much for that lead…..

  419. sunny615 May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Nova. Blows.

  420. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Nova is terrible. I knew the game would be tied very, very soon. Phelps should be in the rotation over him. He has to get himself figured out in AAA.

  421. luis May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Trisha,

    Same reasons i have explained ad nauseum…Yes , we had one excellent inning. I want them to have consistent good at bats, regardless of results. When they do that i will be happy. I want them to be effective with men on base, to bat according to the situation and pitcher they are playing against. I want the hero swings gone. Or the Jekill and Hyde approach.

  422. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Nova has the stuff, but not the control and command, SIMPLE as that.

  423. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Swishers has very little smarts. That’s for sure.

  424. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    New game :sad:

  425. Benny Blanco May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    This has been a season of Yankee SP giving up a despicable amount of homeruns and Yankee hitters not being able to hit with risp. Recipe for disaster.

  426. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Nova’s era is almost 6.
    thinking its time to for his annual trip to AAA?

  427. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Trout might be the best player in the game in a couple of years…..or one of them.

  428. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Need better production than this. Nova is one of the worst pitchers in the AL this season.

  429. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Trish, we may need a lot more !

  430. TheBigOut May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    I just dont like the way Cano represents the yankee way. Theres been many before him and there eill be many after, this isnt wrestling.. Im reminded by the hard time Joba got for fist pumping.. That was natural adrenylane, Cano is naturally showboating. I guess being as humble as Jeter is as rare as moves like jagger :)

    Dont let it get lost in translation. I was commenting on someone saying its his natural follow thru, thats just hysterical.

  431. beedogs May 30th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Hm, I was wrong about one run being enough.

    Wasn’t wrong about Ivan Nova being a horrible, horrible pitcher, though.

  432. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    “Trish don’t get too “high” on our runs until it’s the bottom of the ninth and we’re up by about 5.

    These guys just love to play us. Believe me, we’re gonna need more”

    And not a minute too soon, 4 NYY.

    He was cruising. I don’t understand it. Did the homer break his concentration? Baseball is about more than mechanics, for sure.

  433. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Wang-

    Yankees before tonight are the second worst in the league in surrendering home runs.

  434. sunny615 May 30th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Yankee offense could take a lesson from these Angel hitters. How to hit with RISP.

  435. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    “Swishers has very little smarts. That’s for sure.”

    I really hate when he gets the ball and just slings it towards the infield without even looking

  436. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Nova needs to be sent down, it worked for him last year…..

  437. Benny Blanco May 30th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Nova has given up 40XBH’s most in the majors.

  438. waka flocka May 30th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Pixie dust is off Nova. I wish they would have sold high.

  439. Brappy55 May 30th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    We are awful. Just awful. Nova and Hughes have ruined this team. 2 games we should have had locked up that we just crapped the bed

  440. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Why was Nova way overthrowing his FB in this inning?

  441. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Trumbo has awesome power, really does.

  442. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    they are hitting lasers off Nova…..he has to get the ball down and start sinking it again….he doesn’t have enough fastball to pitch up where he has been.

  443. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Good thing this is the last game of the series. I can’t stand this ballpark and this stupid team. The Yanks always play such bad baseball here.

  444. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    It’s usually the same problem with Nova. He just doesn’t seem to know where the ball is going. He never seems to talk a ton of guys but he can wild within the zone even. It just feels like an adventure at times where exactly the pitch will end up.

  445. Wang IS Taiwan May 30th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Dear Nova. Stop sucking.

  448. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Nova is a head scratcher. Loses a game when he gets 12 strikeouts in 6 innings and now this. He’s got major league stuff- but he might need a return to the minors to work on his mechanics/location.

  449. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    “another ump with his head up his butt….
    but dont worry, mlb is taking care of it (eye roll)”

    You’re joking, aren’t you? You expect them to have time to deal with something so trivial as problems with the umps when they’re busy outlawing the Jeff Nelson move?

    FLIPPIN’ UNREAL. If I didn’t know it was true, I’d think someone was making it up.

    What a pathetic weiner Selig is. Beyond pathetic. He’s actually pretty sleazy.

  450. LockDown May 30th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    I just turned on the game a few minutes ago after watching the stanley cup. I shouldn’t have turned it on :(

  451. Tar May 30th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    “I really hate when he gets the ball and just slings it towards the infield without even looking”

    Yeah he does that. Not sure where Grandy was but if close its his job to tell where to throw it. Seemed like he was throwing to second, when the play was at home.

  452. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the Yanks are held to only 2 hits for the rest of the game and lose. That is usually what happens when they score a lot of runs and then their pitcher craps their pants. The offense can never put it out of their minds and overcome it.

  453. beedogs May 30th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    “Why was Nova way overthrowing his FB in this inning?”

    He does that AJ Burnett thing after giving up a Bob-Omb. Just completely loses his concentration and overcompensates by throwing too hard.

  454. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Take him deep, A-Rod.

  455. yankeefeminista May 30th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Rich, true, but he threw something like 18 FB’s in that inning and only three breaking balls. Is our game plan to attack this team with FB’s? Not very smart. Especially when we can’t locate them.

  456. Niblick May 30th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    OK. He’s convinced me. Nova doesn’t belong in the starting rotation.

  457. Nick in SF May 30th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    “I want them to have consistent good at bats, regardless of results. When they do that i will be happy. I want them to be effective with men on base, to bat according to the situation and pitcher they are playing against. I want the hero swings gone.”

    Were those not good at bats, regardless of the successful results? Were those not good situations for home runs? Were they not effective with men on base?

    We can be heroes!

    ARod is so frustrating.

  461. TheBigOut May 30th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    This team hits the big bombs one inning and gets lost the other 8 .. Its virtually predictable at this point.. But whether they put up 5 runs in 1 inning or in 9 pitchers have to keep them in the game. Its gotta be hard as a pitcher to not be able to count on your offense to fight and grind it out as you watch them try and be heroes all the time. Even if they are the hero 2 out of 10x that still leaves far too many failures in my book. But like i said earlier this team is starting to balance out, we’ll see just what type of team we have soon enough. Slow stArters, or just not a good team.. Who knows maybe they’ll catch lightning after the ASG .. Tho we tend to slow down in august. Lotsa of baseball left, no point in labeling them just yet! Im sure they’ll earn that all by themselves.

  462. UnKnown May 30th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Goal is to have Santana not start the 6th. Need to work him here in the 5th and at the very least get his pitch count so Mike has to pull him.

  463. sunny615 May 30th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

  465. Pat M. May 30th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Still don’t think there was a need for Michael Pineda ???? And it doesn’t appear that Baneulos or Betnaces will be coming to 161 st anytime soon……

  468. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    “Still don’t think there was a need for Michael Pineda ????”

    Pineda wasn’t a finished product. They are having trouble finishing off Hughes and Nova’s development. Why would Pineda be any different?

  469. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    are we forgetting anyone else

  470. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    Maybe we should have flipped Pineda for Trout or Trumbo. Doubt the Angels would have given up either.

  471. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    “Still don’t think there was a need for Michael Pineda ???? ”

    I think they need offense and pitching….pitching they could have bought….not sure where they are going to get offense going forward. Basically I would rather them have not traded one thing they needed for another…..they are the Yankees and I wanted to see them keep the offense and get the pitching without trading it.

  472. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Craptastic inning.

  473. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Hopefully the Yanks will get another hit in the game

  474. TheBigOut May 30th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    More of a need for Yu Darvish and prospect hoarding actually.

  475. Brappy55 May 30th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    I can’t stand this team….really. They are getting embarrassed night-in and night-out. Won 5 against the Royals and A’s, then proceed to play the Angels, and look like an amateur team. We’ll be tied with the Red Sox – who have more injuries than anyone.

  476. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Seems like we could have used Darvish and a 22 year old buc…

  477. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    If you’re going to trade away Cano and Granderson, get Troy Tulowitski and Carlos Gonzalez back..

  478. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Now, yes, Darvish was what they needed.

  481. TheBigOut May 30th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Sooner or later they are gonna realize what kinda team they are. Cashman is out there looking to trade Gardner for a magical Chacon or Small.

  482. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Have to admit, A-Rod’s swing looks slow and long. 19 RBI is not A-Rod like at all.

    Why does Cano never hustle when he thinks he’s gonna be out.

    If Jeter did that, he would be crucified here.

  483. Wave Your Hat May 30th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

  489. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    This makes no sense to me. But as long as he gets the job done it doesn’t have to make sense to me.

  490. JM May 30th, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    Speaking of Kemp, looks like he might have re-injured his hammy tonight.

  491. Jerkface May 30th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Instead of ‘never having enough pitching’, which is impossible due to the 5 rotation slot limitation, the 40 man limitation, option limitation, and budget limitation, how about the Yankees just acquire the right pitchers? Or develop them.

  492. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    “Don’t you realize it was obvious and foreordained that Pineda would tear his labrum?”

    that makes it worse….but it’s not about that….as I said….I don’t think the Yankees should ever have to trade their best prospect (and something they need) for something else they need. It defeats the purpose of developing players if you have to trade them…..especially when you are the Yankees.

  493. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    I have seen enough of Nova tonight. Everything is up in the zone and Girardi is going to continue to let the Angels tack on runs. Too bad Phelps just pitched.

  494. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    “Don’t you realize it was obvious and foreordained that Pineda would tear his labrum? You’re as bad as Cashman!”

    Was it also preordained that they would continue to have him pitch for a spot in the rotation even though his velo was down 5mph?

    That was far stupider than the trade.

  495. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    I’ve said the last 2 nights that this was the game we could win, mostly because of Santana.

    We’re gonna need about 5 more runs IMO.

  496. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    I don’t care what it takes, they need to sign Hamels if he hits FA. Budget or no budget.

  497. Wave Your Hat May 30th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    There’s no budget to buy pitching. Give it up.

  498. 4 NYY May 30th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    When Nova keeps it down, good results.

  499. Wave Your Hat May 30th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Down and “out.”

  501. TheStraw May 30th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Is there even anyone warming up in the pen? Could well lose the game here if they’re not careful.

  502. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    “Dang Rich, the Yanks should hire you.”

    Aim higher.

  503. blake May 30th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    The best move cashman has made as GM is to sign CC…..if Hamels hits the market he should repeat history and actually improve the rotation for real for once and then focus on the offense.

  508. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Yeah the Steinbrenners would have been broke & on the street had the Yanks signed Darvish. I mean if you want to say it’s their decision, fine. It’s their decision. But that budget is self imposed. And they could have started practicing better payroll discipline and still currently made the best decision. Darvish was young & worth it.

  509. UnKnown May 30th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    I think Girardi’s options are Phelps, Garcia and Nova right now. He is thinking Nova is his best bet.

    If he can get through the 5th then the pen options open up a little bit more in the 6th.

  510. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    I would resign Pettitte for next year immediately.

    At least have CC and Pettitte to work with.

  519. theREALkevin May 30th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    More of that, Nova. Now how about a couple runs. Avoid the sweep.

  520. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    “And they could have started practicing better payroll discipline and still currently made the best decision. Darvish was young & worth it.”

    They should have been planning for Darvish for the last several years.

  521. ac1 May 30th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    I would say at this point it may be more important to try for Hamels instead of extending Granderson. Granderson is going to be 33. We are probably going to be locked into Cano into his late 30s.

  522. UnKnown May 30th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    YES SIR!!

    DP ball couldn’t have possibly came at a better time there.

    Now I would not push Nova to much further. Possibly batter to batter in the 6th. Girardi can’t let this game get away with Nova on the mound.

  523. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Cargo: 12:$5M, 13:$7.5M, 14:$10.5M, 15:$16M, 16:$17M, 17:$20M

    Tulo: 12:$8.25M, 13:$10M, 14:$16M, 15-19:$20M annually, 20:$14M, 21:$15M club option ($4M buyout)

    Yea I might do those two for Cano and Grandy, to get under the cap for 2014 when the LT would revert to 17.5% for the Yankees if over $189M. Throw in some AAA SWB pitching.

  524. Captain Clutch May 30th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    When you only have one good position player ready for the majors above single A you don’t trade them. With this aging lineup and free agents coming up Cashman was in no spot to trade a bat like his. It made absolutely no sense for Pineda. If it was Halladay or Felix that is another story.

  525. OldSchoolYankeeFan May 30th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Nice double play, 2 more innings max for Nova

  526. Against All Odds May 30th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    how about the Yankees just acquire the right pitchers? Or develop them.

    ——————————–

    That’s crazy out of the box thinking. Developing starters????? you crazy man :) . Next you’ll want to develop offensive catchers.

  527. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Nova hasn’t been the same since he left the postseason game injured.

    I think he has never fully healed. Or maybe re-injured it.

    Don’t forget, Darvish was a 120 million investment on a guy who never threw a MLB pitch. Would rather spend that money on Hamels, Grienke, or some other proven quantity.

  533. Rich in NJ May 30th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    “Don’t forget, Darvish was a 120 million investment on a guy who never threw a MLB pitch. Would rather spend that money on Hamels, Grienke, or some other proven quantity.”

    true….but Hamels and Greinke may not be options and with regards to luxury tax might both cost twice as much in AAV as Darvish does…..also both those guys can’t help in 2012…..that said they should absolutely sign Cole Hamels if he hits free agency and will come to NY….it shouldn’t even be a question….they should go all out after him the same way they did with CC…..will they? I doubt it……

  550. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

  560. Yankee Trader May 30th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Trisha-

    Nova had a forearm strain during game #2 of the playoffs. No way he’d be pitching now with that injury.

  561. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 30th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

  568. Yankee Trader May 31st, 2012 at 12:01 am

    The last sac fly might have been A-Rod, with his only RBI since the two homer game.

  574. TheStraw May 31st, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Blake,

    I think Cash thought he could patch 2012 together with Garcia, Pineda and Hughes……he did not account for Freddy’s regression and Pineda’s injury. I hope the plan all along was to spend money on at least one starter this year. They have probably Swisher coming off the books, reduced salaries for Jeter and Mo, hopefully Soriano coming off, definitely Garcia coming off.

  575. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Raul is a terrible fielder that’s obvious. I love the dude’s bat and as long as he can just make the routine catches I am good with that.

    When you only have one good position player ready for the majors above single A you don’t trade them.

    ———————–

    As I said earlier in the day how in the world does one trade leave the team with no other major ready bat above a ball? It’s insane. It would be like a football team trading an explosive deep threat WR that can stretch the field and being left with a bunch of 3rd down guys.

    Pat M,

    Somehow I don’t really see Moneyball taking hold in the Bronx.

    Probably be a class action suit against them. :wink:

  615. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 12:13 am

    I really hope Girardi has Boone ready for Morales batting third in the 7th. I don’t think its necessary to make that mistake again tonight.

    Or at least throw Rapada against him. But I really don’t like Rapada to face any righties.

    Yeah, it’s gettin’ up there. Went to g-sons Amercan Legion game at 5pm. Plays almost every day, even on some Sundays.

    Tricia is trying to gift wrap this one 4 you ! LOL

    Uh oh, rookie pitcher on Friday.

  623. jr1212 May 31st, 2012 at 12:16 am

    Im no doctor but I agree with 4 NYY. If Nova has a elbow strain I doubt he can reach 96. Maybe he just struggling with his mechanics or he is bein inconsistent like a young pitcher could be…remember this is only Nova 2nd full season, he might need to start making adjustments

  624. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 12:16 am

    DaveD, regardless of the results, I don’t believe the Yankees ever sit back and try to win.

  628. Yankee Trader May 31st, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Pat M-

    I just don’t agree with SJ’s opinion that 2nd baseman don’t age well- and if they don’t Cano can play SS where that position plays well into their late 30′s and even 40′s!

    Anyway after noticing Cargo had 3 homers already tonight, I showed their salaries, Cargo and Tulo and felt if the Yankees gave up some AAA pitching- there is your blockbuster trade of Cano and Granderson.

  629. yankeefeminista May 31st, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Singleton’s doing the play by play.

    And yeah, should have been Ella, wrong link, but what do you expect at 3AM ET?

  632. Bronx Jeers May 31st, 2012 at 12:18 am

  633. yankeefeminista May 31st, 2012 at 12:19 am

    I would rather listen to Flash than Michael Kay any day of the week. I praise God when we are home so I can actually attend games and avoid Kay.

  661. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 12:24 am

    Credit to Nova. And Girardi. And not to me. I would have taken him out after the 5th. :)

    But he battled. You have to give that to him. (But I still hope we get to the bottom of this, whatever it is. I refuse to believe he’s suddenly lost his pitching skills)

    LOVE Boone Logan. This year’s variety has been nothing short of spectacular. May it continue too!

  662. TheStraw May 31st, 2012 at 12:25 am

  665. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 12:25 am

    Nice Joe Girardi. Ladies and Gents this is a solid managerial move. Boone is going to eat Morales alive here.

  666. Captain Clutch May 31st, 2012 at 12:25 am

    Without Robertson and Mo the Yanks aren’t winning this game with only a 1 run lead. Even with them it would be hard to win this game.

    Actually Girardi has managed this thing perfectly. He made the right moves when he had to. All he can do is put them in the position to get the job done. He can’t do it for them. Logan was absolutely the right move to make when he made it.

    Same with Wade.

    Because something may not work out doesn’t mean it wasn’t the correct move.

    99 times out of 100 Logan gets that out.

  744. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 12:45 am

    “Yankees go meekly. Unreal – they don’t make any effort to work the pitch count.”

    It could be that the book on Downs is that he throws fast strikes and so you have to attack fast.

  745. We Want Mo Mo May 31st, 2012 at 12:45 am

    joe g is a good family man, ill give him that. brought our team together in 2009. it was like one bigfamily

    Chance of Pujols vs. Soriano in 1-run game in 9th. Albert is 4-for-4 with 2 doubles and a HR

  749. theREALkevin May 31st, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Mo mo,

    I’m not sure. Tex has looked bad again these last couple of games. He seems pretty up and down. They need consistently better ABs from him, including walking more.

  750. 4 NYY May 31st, 2012 at 12:46 am

    I really believe the Angels, if they really get going hitting, can make a good run at Texas.

  751. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Sterling said something pretty funny tonight in the pregame (I was driving at that time). He said that within a week, all of the team in the AL East will probably be tied.

    Wade. Solid.

  756. GreenBeret7 May 31st, 2012 at 12:47 am

    If it were up to some on here, Jeter would be hitting 8 or 9, and Teixeeira would be riding the bench. That’s their idea of line-up construction. They haven’t realized that you can only play what you have available.

  757. yankeefeminista May 31st, 2012 at 12:48 am

    “If it were up to some on here, Jeter would be hitting 8 or 9, and Teixeeira would be riding the bench. ”

    Really? Jeter is their best hitter. Right now, I would move A-Rod up, and Tex down v. LHP.

  761. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 12:49 am

    Look as Laz even giving Wade that pitch below the knees.

  762. Bronx Jeers May 31st, 2012 at 12:49 am

    Looks like Wades got a spitball going on that curve.

  775. TheStraw May 31st, 2012 at 12:51 am

    We need a run to Albert proof the game.

  776. 4 NYY May 31st, 2012 at 12:51 am

    I don’t know what to say about Sori, I said earlier in the year that he will break our hearts a few times. Hope it’s not tonight. He just looks so “not in the game” to me. But, he has been doing pretty good. Never a clean inning though. Let us pray !

  777. Yankee Trader May 31st, 2012 at 12:51 am

    Trisha-

    Garcia can’t be traded until June 15th without his permission. I believe he can still be released…………without his permission. He’s taking up wasted space for a bullpen that could use another arm, even if DRob comes back at 100%

  778. Rich in NJ May 31st, 2012 at 12:51 am

    Ooops RHP.

  779. Captain Clutch May 31st, 2012 at 12:51 am

    Good job by Wade. Hopefully Soriano can follow in his footsteps.

  780. Yankee Trader May 31st, 2012 at 12:52 am

  781. waka flocka May 31st, 2012 at 12:52 am

    Not enough credit given to the scouting department for Wade. He’s been money ever since he joined the team

  782. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 12:52 am

    Soriano definitely is going to have to earn it. That is for sure.

    A few more runs here would sure be nice.

  787. theREALkevin May 31st, 2012 at 12:55 am

    Mo mo,

    6 walks in his last 10 games but they were all in 2 games. 3 walks in each. I’d like to see it a little more spaced out, consistently walking, and bring up his overall total. 17 on the season. Just try to grind out ABs, watch for your pitch & drive it. The power is still there.

  788. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 12:55 am

    I am going to wax poetic about Soriano right now, but he really is 9th-inning money.

    I wanted Soriano from the time he was with the Rays, but I never thought we had the shot of a snowball in hell to get him. I was ecstatic when the Yankees got him.

    His stuff is lethal and he makes it look efffotless.

    It doesn’t mean that he may not give it up at some point in the far future. :)

    Even Mo isn’t perfect.

    But I feel very secure with him on the mound. It feels like he has found his sealegs in the 9th.

    Had to say that. It’s been burning inside of me!

  789. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 12:56 am

    Be nice if Soriano could get his first clean inning of the season tonight.

  790. Nick in SF May 31st, 2012 at 12:56 am

    Melky just got his 51st hit in the month of May, tying the SF Giants record for hits in any single month.

    He is now tied for that record with… Randy Winn.

    Giants are off tomorrow, that could be it for the month.

  792. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 12:56 am

    “Bourjos is a vacuum cleaner.”

    What’s unfortunate is that Bourjos is nothing more than a spare part for the Angels. He is only getting playing time because Wells is down, and because Hunter had been away from the team. Prior to that, he had been riding the bench.

  798. Captain Clutch May 31st, 2012 at 12:58 am

    This is going to be scary. We know that Soriano can’t throw a 1,2,3 inning but hopefully he just doesn’t let a run score.

  802. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 12:59 am

    Sori’s WHIP over the last 30 days is 1.16.

    While I would love a perfect inning, he’s facing the top of the lineup. It doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

    But I’ll be happy with the save, no matter how he gets it!

    :)

  803. Brappy55 May 31st, 2012 at 12:59 am

    Oh man – I am really really nervous. Get that 1st out…that’s most important…you get Trout, then go after Callaspo.

  804. yankeefeminista May 31st, 2012 at 12:59 am

  806. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 1:00 am

    If Trout gets on it could be real bad.

    Get 3 outs before giving up a run is the goal. However that happens it does not matter.

  807. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:00 am

    Gee, did everyone biotch about DRob? Never remember hearing it, but he definitely wasn’t the master of the 1-2-3.

    I guess it depends on who the pitcher is, a favorite son, or someone nobody really wanted.

  808. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:00 am

  825. GreenBeret7 May 31st, 2012 at 1:03 am

    If first base is open, Pujols wouldn’t see a pitch within 5 feet of the plate.

    Get him Sori. Get him!

  827. Captain Clutch May 31st, 2012 at 1:04 am

    Pujols has had a lot of trouble this year with off speed pitches. So I am sure Martin is going to call for that but the hits that Soriano has given up recently have been from his curveball. Hopefully he can get 2 more outs.

  828. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:04 am

    Jeter may have no range, but if that ball gets passed him, this game might have been tied. So regardless, it was a heads up play, and probably the game winning play.

    Sori!!!! 6 for 6 on saves, despite the theatrics.

  893. yankeefeminista May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Odds, lol.

  894. the vaunted chris May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    it’s amazing to me anyone would think Jeter made a “good” play on that. A slightly above average shortstop gets to that with no problem, and it doesn’t look difficult at all.

  895. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Needed it wanted it got it.

    Huge win. Thank You.

  896. Jerkface May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Scary, thought that was going to leave even if it was weakly hit. Hanging slider, whew.

  897. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    See ya, Dumbo.

  898. Captain Clutch May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Yes!!! Thank you Soriano… that is a big win. You don’t want to get swept by these guys.

  899. luis May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Good game, Good night all

  900. Brappy55 May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Soriano does it. Who cares how he does it, he does it. Shoulda won 2 of these.

  901. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    And Sori made the sign of the cross. Now I love him even more!

    :)

  902. igotid88 May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Nova gets another win.

  903. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 1:14 am

    And Chad new it all along. Had the post game wrap ready.

  904. jackamir May 31st, 2012 at 1:15 am

    Thanks to all. I aged 5yrs in the last 2 innings.

    Just one comment:

    Jeter may have no range, but if that ball gets passed him, this game might have been tied. So regardless, it was a heads up play, and probably the game winning play.

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

    I know you didn’t mean “no” range. He’s not what he was maybe, but still damn good because he’s smart and has learned to play hitters like any good SS.

  907. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:15 am

    Happy Birthday jackamir! You just got your present.

    ………

    you understand how that makes no sense, correct? It only “almost” got passed him because of the range. he created the problem you say he helped to kinda solve.

  909. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 1:16 am

    I think although Soriano is clearly a troubled pitcher. They should leave him in the closer role. The dude gets it done and then Robertson can be used in high leverage situations.

    Nice win.

    Actually i was answering to a previous post. Even giving him that Jeter has no range, it was the game winning play in my view. But you are right, he is not what he once was, but it is still plenty good.

  912. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:18 am

    AND THE BAIT SITS UNTOUCHED.

    The desperate stalker stalks away.

    HA HA HA HA HA!

    :)

    Love it.

  913. 4 NYY May 31st, 2012 at 1:18 am

    This is the one I said we would win, but I really thought it would be even more high scoring. Especially the way Nova started. I knew ( as much as one can ) that we would get to Santana, we usually do. Was totally dependent on Nova’s pitching. Not great, or even real good, but good enough. Relief saved us again.

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

    I am just expressing what a money player Jeter is…He knew that ball was probably the game, and kept it on the infield. Maybe it wasn’t pretty, but he did his job preventing Cayaspo to reach third base.

  915. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 1:25 am

    Better go check the traps. Lots of nasty critters this type of night out trolling around.

    I know I go one for sure. Tonight. Too Easy.

  916. the vaunted chris May 31st, 2012 at 1:28 am

    I don’t know what a “money” player is. But a “non-money” player with better range would have made an out instead of having to save a game by diving all over the place on a very reachable groundball. Something I do agree with….it wasn’t pretty. It never is when he attempts to go to his left. That’s about all I can call it. An attempt.

    We’re all on the same team here and I never really post, but plays like that separate the fanboys from the realists. Just call it what it is. A normal out that Jeter turned into a celebration of his “grittiness” to save the game. It’s just funny. I mean it’s pretty well known that Jeter is awful to his left. No secret there. I’m not breaking new ground.

    thanks for adding to the discussion. From the few threads I read, you are the one that no one takes seriously or likes, correct?

  919. UnKnown May 31st, 2012 at 1:33 am

    SNAP – That’s the sound of rat rattling the cage. Love it. HARDEE HAR HAR Suckers.

  920. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:33 am

    chris – I wasn’t referring to you. Your post intervened.

    Sorry.

  921. the vaunted chris May 31st, 2012 at 1:35 am

    then i apologize

  922. the vaunted chris May 31st, 2012 at 1:36 am

    i really have no idea, trisha. I was just trying to be mean. Serves me right

    YES. You are a quick study Chris

  924. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 31st, 2012 at 1:39 am

    chris, not a problem. :) Sometimes posts get dumped in the wrong spot and it’s easy to misread.

    It’s fine.

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

    I may be a Fanboy and that I am….I do agree that you are not breaking any new ground with the range thing…But Jeter is what we have, he made a crucial stop that probably saved the game. You want to look at it that other more younger and rangy SS make that play routinely. Yup, you are right….But we don’t have that player on our team.

  926. the vaunted chris May 31st, 2012 at 1:54 am

    i feel ya man. Jeter’s range just drives me crazy and I like to argue. They won, so I’m good.
