TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., MY9 and MLB Network

WEATHER: Cloudy, but the forecast suggests only a slight chance of rain.

UMPIRES: HP Greg Gibson, 1B Gerry Davis, 2B Phil Cuzzi, 3B Manny Gonzalez

GONE STREAKING: The Yankees have won a season-high 10 straight games, their longest winning streak since May of 2005. According to Elias, it’s the first time in franchise history that the Yankees have won 10 consecutive games against teams with winning records. With a win tonight, the Yankees will match their longest winning streak over the past 50 years (also 11 straight wins in 1985 and 1964). This is the Yankees 29th winning streak of at least 10 games in the franchise’s history (since 1903). It’s the longest winning streak in the Majors this season.

BEATING UP ON THE NL: The Yankees have won 18 of their last 21 interleague games dating back to last season, including 10 in a row. It is the Yankees second-longest winning streak against the N.L. all time behind a 13-game winning streak from June 12, 2003 to June 10, 2004. This streak is tied for the fifth-longest single-season interleague winning streak since it began in 1997.

GOOD FROM THE START: Yankees starters have pitched at least six innings in each of their last 18 games. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that’s the longest such streak in the Majors this season and the franchise’s longest such stretch since 1981 when the Yankees rotation made 19 consecutive starts of at least six innings.

UPDATE, 7:35 p.m.: Ibanez snaps an 0-for-15 with a double in the second. Two on and no outs for Swisher’s first at-bat since Saturday.

UPDATE, 7:39 p.m.: Welcome back! Swisher doubles in both runs, with Ibanez having to kick things into another gear to score the second run.

UPDATE, 8:13 p.m.: Two-out RBI double by Chipper Jones has tied the game at 2. Kuroda was one strike away from getting out of this inning scoreless before Jones even came to the plate, but Kuroda walked Freddie Freeman to give Jones a chance.

UPDATE, 8:32 p.m.: It’s ruled an error instead of a double, but Martin’s two-out ball into right field is enough to score the tying run here in the fourth.

UPDATE, 8:56 p.m.: Swisher with another hit, and this one nearly gave the Yankees the lead except that Teixeira was thrown out at the plate. It’s still 3-3 heading into the sixth.

UPDATE, 9:08 p.m.: Sharp grounder off Teixeira’s heel for a go-ahead single. It’s a 4-3 Braves lead midway through the sixth.

    The missus has the TV for an hour, and I can’t watch on MLB TV because I’m in Braves territory.

    Sad to hear my friend. At least you will have it on the radio, just don’t believe Sterling’s HR calls :)

    “Youkilis might actually thrive from a change of scenery.”

    The scenery would only thrive with a change of Youkilis.

  12. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Go Gabe!

  13. MG June 19th, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    what is the Over/Under on an appearance by the muronic troll tonight?

    I would say the bottom of the 2nd unless the Yankees put up a crooked number in the 1st.

    It must be really tough to be a troll on a Yankees board, wouldn’t it be a better gig on the Twins or Padres board where he would probably have company?

  14. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    YF,

    Does Encinas looks that good?

    K for Hiroki, one down

  15. tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Good day, good evening, and good night! Kuroda!

  16. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    YF,
    I posted some Ibanez home/away splits for May and June on the last storyline.
    Pretty dramatic stuff if you get the chance to check out the #s.

  17. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    MG,

    If we get to trail at some point, he will show up. If not, unlikely.

    YF,

    two down, roller to 2nd

  18. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Quick and fast 1st inning from Kuroda San. stuff looks really good, especially the slider

  19. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Will later cofuzz but I know the splits are dramatic. Looks good Encinas sitting 90-92, throwing some nice cb too. Walked one and to to Lopez.

  20. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Okay 3 up 3 down. Now score early and often, put them on their heels.

  21. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Luis good for Hiro!

  22. kd June 19th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    thanks for the updates luis, stuck in the office.

  23. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Hi Yankee fans – have a wonderful evening – tad humid here but still enjoying my Jays despite,………everything . Hey!? , did Dickey lose 2 no no’s in a row with 2 out in the ninth like Stieb? Glad Seaver got his avec the Reds.

  24. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Go Jeet!

  25. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    I would be glad if they work the count the first time around Jackamir

  26. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    I’ll keep them coming kd

  27. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    How old is Encinas?

  28. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Kuroda 10 pitches, 8 for strikes.

    Hudson about that many just on Jeter

  29. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Good at bat from Jeter, 10 pitches already, he just spoiled a very good one. And he wlks!! good at bat in deed

  30. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Atta boy, Jeet!

  31. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Hi Trader! good to see you around

  32. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Encinas is 20.

  33. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    what a great leadoff AB by the captain.

  34. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    So he still has ways to grow.

    Grandy just k’d

  35. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    He expanded the k zone big time in this at bat

  36. MG June 19th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Grandy just missed a cookie there.

    Hudson looks like he doesn’t have much tonight, hopefully they get him early before he can find himself

  37. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Hudson has a good sinker tonight….gotta make him get the ball up

  38. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    This is what Huddy does….he sinks the ball and tries to expand the zone….you have to make him come in the strike zone or he’ll nibble you to death

  39. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    not a strike

  40. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Arod k’d on a inside pitch, not a strike. Not even close

  41. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    That was funny Nick. Change of Youkilis.

  42. b_widmer2 June 19th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Ball has to go over the plate to be a strike correct? :)

  43. Pat M. June 19th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Well we know were the inside zone is on the right side

  44. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Cano with a weak roller to 2nd. Inning over, but Hudson threw a ton of pitches in no small part thanks to the very good at bat from Jeter

  45. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Hi Trader! good to see you aaround.
    —————————-
    Hi back. Missed the game last night-was out with friends, Braves fans for dinner. Looks like the videotape seesion with Rothschild helped CC.

    Braves announcers complaining that Yankees hitters don’t like being called out on strikes, prompted by A-Rod turning to ump and asking him if te last pitch wa a strike.

  46. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    I wonder what ARod said to the ump as he went to grab some bench after watching ball 2 get called strike 3.
    I wonder if the ump cares enough to watch a replay and find out he missed the call.

  47. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    This is what Huddy does….he sinks the ball and tries to expand the zone….you have to make him come in the strike zone or he’ll nibble you to death

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

    Yup, that’s why they have to stay patient and they will be fine

  48. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Thanks, Luis for updates.

  49. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Trader,

    It was at least 4 to 6 inches inside. Arod had to ask, i heard the complains from the Braves booth, i have the Braves broadcast on Direct TV

  50. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Called the same inside strike on Uggla

  51. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    K and a fly out to LF, two quick outs from Hiroki. Chipper at the plate

  52. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Yea Im.stuck with Chip as well…..awful

  53. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Hiro making quick work of the Bravos so far….

  54. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Another real quick inning 3 up, 3 down. Chipper a dribbler to 3rd.

    Trader,

    They weren’t the same, this one was on the k zone, the other not even close

  55. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Blake and Luis, 2 respectable human beings, are arguing about balls and strikes.

    And I am not.

    Whats wrong with that picture?

    Am I losing my edge or my desire?

  56. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Hudson 22 pitches already. Kuroda has that shuto[screwball] working well vs the lefties.

  57. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    My pleasure YF…any time ;)

  58. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    Hudson got that one up and Tex ripped it.

  59. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    WWMM,

    Thanks for the respectable thing ;) i am not sur my wife would agree! ;)

    Tex!! He is hitting the ball very well lately

  60. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    That was a strike

  61. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Ibanez!! good at bat, forced Hudson to raise the ball

  62. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    YF Ibanez with a double to RF

  63. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Hi gang and gangettes !

    A-Rod got hosed on that 3rd strike call, it was on the other batters box inside line.

  64. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Another ball up and hammered…..if thr Yanks are patient and wait on the ball up its BP….

  65. tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Nice double, let’s go!

  66. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Raul strikes again.

  67. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    R.A. Dickey, a man or a myth. Unbelievable story & what makes Baseball the greatest sport.

  68. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Good for Ibanez who has been scuffling the last 33 games, probably from regularly playing the OF.

    .196/.250/.359 previous 33 games

  69. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    38npitches already

  70. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Swish time !

  71. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Ibanez hustles well.

  72. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Ibanez was really motoring there!

  73. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    SWISH!!! double to dead center, two runs score. Good to see that Hiroki has some run support!

  74. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Huddy is almost like hitting a knuckle ball….if it starts in the middle its gonna sink out of the zone…..if it starts up itll sink in the middle. Three ABs in the row where the Yabks have waited on a ball up and hammered it.

  75. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Early & Often….

  76. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    No Willie Mays catch for Bourn there.

  77. Benny Blanco June 19th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Risp!!!!!!

  78. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Oh! another hit with RISP

  79. tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Just got taken in by “It is, high, it is far” etc.

  80. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    Nice to give Kuroda 2 of the 3 runs the Yankees support him with, already.

  81. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    No hero swings Russ please

  82. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    What the heck is Martin doing?

  83. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Just got taken in by “It is, high, it is far” etc.

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

    Told ya to be aware of Sterlings HR calls ;)

    Martin tried to bunt himself for a hit and failed. Inning over, but two runs scored

  84. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Freeman has a great glove…..he’s a gonna be a good player.

  85. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    What the heck is Martin doing?

    ——————————

    Gift wrap an out?….He tried to surprised the defense

  86. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Blake-

    Maybe he thought Swisher was on 3rd, or trying to get a bunt down for a hit! I hope it was the 2nd.

  87. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Heyward is going to be a beast….just a matter of time. He may be peaking right when he’s a FA in 3 years

  88. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    He was trying to bunt for a hit……which is dumb right there with a man on 2nd and 1 out…..drive him in.

  89. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Heyward with a double and advance to third after Grandy bubbled the ball. have to say that Kuroda was squeezed a little forcing him to go to the middle of the plate.

    Roller to SS runner scores 2-1 Yankees

  90. blake June 19th, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Chip just called him Hideki Kuroda

  91. MG June 19th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    What an arm on Cano, Heyward was almost on 3rd before he caught the throw from Grandy and just about got him.

  92. MG June 19th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    when did Doug Heffernan get a job with the Braves?

  93. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    The Ump is just inconsistent, with a moving k zone

  94. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Inning over…1 triple, 1 run scored 2-1 Yankees

  95. MG June 19th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    blake, however bad the Braves announcers are, I get stuck with Dewayne Stats 18X a year when the Yankees play the Rays, it’s like nails on a chalkboard…

  96. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    Hudson 44 pitches.

  97. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    MG June 19th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    blake, however bad the Braves announcers are, I get stuck with Dewayne Stats 18X a year when the Yankees play the Rays, it’s like nails on a chalkboard…

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

    lol Sometimes i have to endure them as well. You are spot on

  98. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    MG—-Doug would do better at Citi field…

  99. MG June 19th, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 7:52 pm
    MG—-Doug would do better at Citi field…
    ——————–
    that’s true, and having Carrie around would certainly help…

  100. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    luis, umpires are never consistent with their strike zones. The only thing they are consistent with is, their strike zones are usually anti-Yankees.

  101. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    Grandy with a flyout to CF, Arod k’d, he expanded the strike zone and got burned. Cano with a line drive out to CF. Inning over

  102. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    luis, umpires are never consistent with their strike zones. The only thing they are consistent with is, their strike zones are usually anti-Yankees.

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

    I wouldn’t go as far as that, but lately we have had a very bad run Umpiring wise.

  103. luis June 19th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    He did go

  104. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Prado with hit through the hole between 2nd and 3rd.

  105. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    WP Prado advances to 2nd

  106. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    McCann fly out to CF

  107. tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    How can you miss McCann’s fat ass if you are trying to hit him

  108. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    How many out?

  109. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    MG,

    Man thats rough….I usually can get YES except when they play the braves every 3 years or so.

  110. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Need a pop up or K here to Ugly.

  111. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    Prado advanced to third on the play by the way

  112. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    k!!! two outs now YF

  113. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    Little slider/cutter Ks Uggla…..

  114. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I didn’t like the pitch called there, very dangerous

  115. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    Dont give in here….

  116. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Walk is better than a two run homer there….dont mind that at all….go get Chipper now.

  117. Pat M. June 19th, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    One of the great things about Kuroda and pitchers like hi, is that they work fast….No human rain delay crap…..Keeps you fresh and on your toes

  118. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Walked him, men on 1st and 3rd. Chipper at the plate

  119. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Walk is better than a two run homer there….dont mind that at all….go get Chipper now.

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

    That inside pitch was a dangerous call, especialyy as it happen that he missed his location, we were lucky there

  120. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    luis, Ive watched 155+ Yankees games a year since 1995. Things used to be fair. In the past several years, HP umpiring has been very biased against the Yankees. This is the first year Ill have watched less than 155 games. Traveling and personal struggles have forced me to miss about 15 games already, and a lot of many more.

  121. tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    Chipper has been a pain in the ass for what feels like 30 years. Sure Hall of Famer.

  122. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    *especially*

    Still is.

  125. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    Damn!! Chipper ties the game

  126. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    Thats a terrible pitch right there….ahead 1-2 and fastball right down the middle.

  127. Pat M. June 19th, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    Noticed Jeter trailing the relay from right field…..Just like the flip play

  128. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Now you have to face a guy that could make it 5-2 in a hurry.

  129. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    WWMM,

    I hope that you overcome your struggles, whatever they may be. I just don’t think there is a Yankee bias, just bad umps

  130. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    Walk him.

  131. Niblick June 19th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    HK looking pretty bad this inning. Falling behind, and then meatballs over the plate.

  132. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    I hope our good luck charm muwarrior shows up so the Yankees can take the lead back

  133. RS June 19th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    wasn’t that the pitch ARod struck out on?? Stupid ump

  134. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 19th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    goof thing pen is rested

  135. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Show me something Hiroki!
    Do you still want to win this game?
    Do you still have the stuff to bring the W home?

  136. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    How about a visit to the mound

  137. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Wow!!, he has called that pitch a ball, then a strike and now a ball again. Moving k zone

  138. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 19th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    good**

  139. muwarriorsfan June 19th, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    Great job Kuroda…

  140. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Awful baserunning by Heyward……big play right there….

  141. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Frozen,

    You can bet that he is lurking.

    Bad base running blunder from Hayward prevents a second run 3-2 Braves

    1,2,3 he will show up now

  142. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Rough inning for Kuroda, but that last call helped.

  143. muwarriorsfan June 19th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Kuroda is prone to meltdowns with runners on base, like Wang

  144. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Hope that comes back to bite them.

  145. tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Something you rarely see on that play.

  146. Niblick June 19th, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Kuroda stinks.

  147. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Luis, he was already above you….

  148. syd_cash June 19th, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    wow heads up on Grandy to throw to 3rd….and save a run :)

  149. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Our good luck troll is here now….lets score some runs!

  150. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Scoring this inning

  151. Niblick June 19th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Time to get some runs back.

  152. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Great job Kuroda…

    —————-

    YAYYY!!!!!! He’s here! A Yankee rally can’t be far behind. :)

    Glad to see his mommy didn’t revoke his internet and tv privileges after his tantrum last night

  153. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    umps make a good call for once. im stunned

  154. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Galvis suspended. Minor leaguers are suspended about 2 times a week. They don’t have a union to back them up.

    Aren’t they ever gonna stop ?

  155. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    now maybe our guys can get that small strike zone…

  156. tomingeorgia June 19th, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    TV in here back in the Frau’s possession, moving to the bedroom. See you in the morning, when we can discuss the ongoing streak.

    He is faster than light!!! ;) I am confident we are going to kick some Braves a**s

  160. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    Good night Tom, have a good one

  161. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    I did, I did, I did hear some Moo ing ! It’s our UN warrior back from his basement corner.

  162. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    Ok we are in business

  163. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    He gets the outside call that he didn’t give to Kuroda, this is the second time this inning

  164. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    anyone pick up Brad Lidge yet? him on the Red Sox would be good news for the Yankees.

  165. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    Professional AB so far for Chavez……..

  166. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    Come Russ….No hero swings

  168. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    the ‘should be a back up’ catcher AB now….

  169. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Russ, don’t swing at that….

  170. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    the backup swings at ball 3, come on lame brain…

  171. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Ugh

  172. Nick in SF June 19th, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Russ! That was ball three.

  173. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Now Jeter goes to right 5-3

  178. syd_cash June 19th, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    yes!!! the old Chipper Jones prolly woulda got that one

  179. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    He was up, the ball was down

  180. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    This ump’s strike zone is elastic.

    See, that’s the kind of thing that won’t show up in the box score. Chavez really worked Hudson in his AB, leading to tired pitches to Martin.

  181. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    The old reflexes just arent what they were for Chipper….

  182. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    ms. warrior should post more so we can score more runs.

  183. MG June 19th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    It’s always great when the guy taking the most crap on the blog comes through in an important spot…

  184. Nick in SF June 19th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    Not exactly heroic, but Russ put the ball wear Chipper would have a hard time with it (near his glove).

  185. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    not asking much from martin, all i want is 240+ BA, 320-330 OBP, 10-15 hr’s is all

    how bout no K this time grandY?

  199. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

  200. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    Granderson’s whiffs are a real liability

  201. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    Nasty pitch there to get Curtis.

  206. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    No blake, Fox’s k zone showed it inside…But it was closer to the plate that some others that have been called strikes..This Ump has no clue where the strike zone is.

  207. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    New game, 5 innings long.
    Let’s do this!

  212. choochoo June 19th, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    As a big Yankee fan, I have to say that Granderson is not all he’s cracked up to be. He may hit homers, but so did Dave Kingman. He is not an All-Star.
    Why is almost everyone here so wary about criticizing him?

  213. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    “No blake, Fox’s k zone showed it inside…But it was closer to the plate that some others that have been called strikes..This Ump has no clue where the strike zone is.”

    Braves camera angle is off center….probably a ball but like you said closer pitches have been called strikes tonight…..Derek Jeter gets the benefit of the doubt cause he’s DJ.

  214. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    YF,
    I must’ve missed it…what happened with Encinas that he was out before finishing 2?

  215. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    strike zone is all over the place, a pitch right over the batters box line gets arod rung up, a pitch in between the box line and the plate gets jeter a walk. what a joke. and we can’t get a machine to call just balls and strikes WHY?

  216. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    I am not giving up Bautista for ,………David Clyde :) j

  217. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Blake,

    Are you watching the game? or just gameday?

  218. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    choochoo June 19th, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Why is almost everyone here so wary about criticizing him?
    ———–

    his strike outs are out of control, around 90 already and 2 tonight. 21 HR’s and only 40 RBI – most of his dingers are solo shots, i get he hits 2nd but he also has ample opportunity with guy’s on base and whiffs more often than not. plus he was a no show last october.

  219. LGY June 19th, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    Granderson has an OPS over .900 since retooling his swing with KLong in August 2010. And that’s out of an up the middle position.

    A Dave Kingman comparison? Come on now.

  220. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    I mean the AS game

  221. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    Nice inning for Kuroda. Thanks, MOOMOO.

  222. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    I’m watching on the braves broadcast…their camera angle is off center

  223. LGY June 19th, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Granderson has the 11th higher fWAR in MLB since the start of 2011.

  224. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Good bounce back inning from Kuroda

  225. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    Kuroda-san nice inning 73 pitchesthru 5, Hudson @91-looks like he’ll be well over 100 this inning as A-Rod, Cano, Tex tee off.

  226. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    Dave Kingman had a career .780 OPS as a bad defender at non premium positions. Granderson’s is .841 career as a CFer and as mentioned it’s more like .900 since he fixed his swing…..bad comparison. 40 homers CFer’s are rare things.

  227. LGY June 19th, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    plus he was a no show last october.

    ——–

    He had a .925 OPS in the ALDS last year

  228. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    make an adjustment here Alex.

  229. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Arod don’t expand the zone

  230. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    oh no…not watching the Sally ASG…..just game day

  231. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Crap. BABIP fail.

  232. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Very well placed D there for Arod.

    Blake, I meant that if you were watching the game of Sanchez and Austin. To know how did their at bats went

  233. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    BABIP not our friend with Cano and Alex there.

  234. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Thanks Blake ;)

  235. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    luis,

    nah not watching….I don’t think it’s televised

  236. choochoo June 19th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    For the last 2 years Gtanderson has struck out more than games played, and more than hits accumulated. You can have him. When the dust is all done settling someday, it will show thay keeping Austin Jackson and Ian Kennedy would have been a better move than getting this jamoke. Speaking of OPS, what is Jackson’s since he got fixed?

  237. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Yankee fans , be happy! You hold a great team !!! J

  238. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    5 IP 3 ER so far by Kuroda, not bad considering the floating zone, all things considered.

  239. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    I like patient Teix better than that other guy at the beginning of the season.

  240. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    jury is still out on austin jackson, and IPK would never have sniffed the success he’s had in the AL.

  241. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Does Chad Durbin pitch every night?

  242. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    layoff the low stuff Swish.

  243. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Hudson tells manager All’s good, I got him.

  244. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    I like this match up with Swisher, he just have to keep the very good approach he has had. Stay within yourself Swish!

  245. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Come on Swish….get a ball up you can handle

  246. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Nice to see Swish back in the lineup

  247. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Why send Teix there?

  250. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Way to go Swish.

    Too bad at home. Good throw

    should Bobby Wilson’d McCann. cmon TEX

  254. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    It was hit hard and he made a good throw.

  255. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    keep your fWAR, which is merely a subjective stat, formulated by biased people.
    Mantle and Ruth just had their respective WAR’s drastically reduced. How in hell can you value something so ridiculous?
    Granderson is hitting .250. He is near the top of the league is K’s except for Dunn. He hit in the 250′s last year.

  264. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Why are we running on jHey’s arm?

    Cofuzz , not sure but 3 pitchers already, so maybe a coming off EST thing…

    Thompson is aggressive…I would have hold Tex too… Just to see Hudson out of the game on the 5th

  266. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Teix goes hard. Of course he’s not fast, but gives his best.

  270. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Lucky there on the bounce. Might have been a triple

  271. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    I don’t mind the send there….make them throw you out in the 5th inning. Heyward made a good throw……Kuroda gotta pitch around trouble again here.

  272. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    I think that double had to do more with some poor positioning than anything else

  273. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Nice K.

  274. blake June 19th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Kuroda has killed Uggla

  275. luis June 19th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Golden sombrero for Ugly

  276. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Uggg…lly and not just the at bat

  277. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    I’m not questioning the call to send Teix.
    You gotta score from second on a single to the OF.
    I’d like to check his secondary lead and his break on the swing to see if he could’ve been a couple steps faster to the plate, but that took a perfect play and a perfect throw to get him.

  278. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Good two outs…This Chipper at bat is key

  279. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Braves have some serious beef with Uggla, McCann, Freeman and Hinske

  280. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Chipper is a little Chubsy Wubsy too

  281. Tar June 19th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    I don’t mind the send either.

    Being out by 5 ft I have issues with. :wink:

  282. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    I think he pitched around Chipper.

  283. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Trader,

    Beef meaning power right?

  284. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Beef mean bulk

  285. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    So…Encinas was on a very low pitch count?

    Kuroda needs to get out of this jam, unlike the one on the 3rd that he *almost* wiggled out of.

  286. Pat M. June 19th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Swish hit a seed to Heywood who charged the ball piked it clean and rifled it home…..No problem with sending Tex ……Big League play

  287. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Bad luck.

  288. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Yanks very fortunate to have the day game before it really really gets hot tomorrow, and Thursday off. It is going to be very very hot.

  289. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    so nice watching Yankees Braves w/o the moronic tomahawk chant. dumbest chant in all of sports

  290. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Can someone tell me why Munson is not in their hall?

  291. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Rare miss by Tex

  292. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    I meant the 4th. And Kuroda is repeating the 4th now.

  293. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Very unlucky

  294. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Cofuzz, apparently.

  295. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    only a matter of time before lady luck stopped peeing on the Braves.

  296. comet June 19th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Hey Tom:

    Thanks for the good thoughts earlier today.

    Think Tex will be playing tomorrow?

  297. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    No Luis-

    Beef meaning pure corn fed beef.

  298. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Uggla looks like Bret Boone after he bulked up on the juice

  299. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    As in fat LOL i get it now

  300. JobaTipsHisCap June 19th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Geez,I am still waiting for real arod show up.

  301. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Time to get it back.

  302. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    kuroda battling, AJ would have put this game out of reach awhile ago.

  303. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Phew. Avoids further damage. Yanks will have to earn number 11.

  304. Tar June 19th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Way to change the eye level.

  305. Fondo Motz June 19th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Geez,I am still waiting for real arod show up

    How many years is that?

  306. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    Frozen,
    You’re going all R. Kelly with the metaphors…

  307. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    To be fair, Kuroda was hurt by that floating or moving strikezone

  308. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:07 pm
    Uggla looks like Bret Boone after he bulked up on the juice

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

    True

  309. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    Tough game, Braves aren’t exactly patsies !

  310. Tar June 19th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    THat was a fat pitch Chavy just popped up

  311. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Sayonara Kurodasan, you’re done for the night. Pickup your consolation prize. Thanks for your effort but we will take it from here…

  312. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Bob Boone was an amazing catcher who actually hit better when he got old.

  313. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Lots of meatballs down the middle

  314. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    valdespin with a 2 out 2run base knock and the birds are down 5-0

  315. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Craptastic inning.

  316. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    2 more innings to get some runs before trying to accumulate enough strikeouts on wild pitches to score a run off Kimbrel.

  317. Jerkface June 19th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    keep your fWAR, which is merely a subjective stat, formulated by biased people.
    Mantle and Ruth just had their respective WAR’s drastically reduced. How in hell can you value something so ridiculous?

    What are you talking about? Biased for what? Or against whom? Babe Ruth is #1 in fWAR and bWAR, so uh… not really ridiculous. He is leading Bonds by like 10 WAR.

  318. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    I wish Jeter wouldn’t smile when he fails either w/bat or in the field. Its a sign of weakness & makes him seem smug. I idolize Jeter….

  319. Hassey June 19th, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    Geez- our pitching has one lousy hiccup and right away our offense turns back into a pumpkin. How about our collection of Mark Belangers pick up the starter for once?

  320. blake June 19th, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    time is now this inning….got the middle coming up….don’t want to let it get to Kimbrel

  321. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    Hassey, how can you be negative in the middle of a ten game streak? It’s not like they are going to go 96-0 for the rest of the year.

  322. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    Blake-

    Time to score or it’s either the good or the bad Venters before Kimbrel

  323. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    By the way, our resident troll must be such an anti-Yankee that he actually believes that he is our good luck charm

  324. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    OKC tonight

  325. blake June 19th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    good start

  326. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    grandy!

  327. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Steal second?

  328. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    I smell an Abomb

  329. Hassey June 19th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    What was negative? You’re reaching now, straw man

  330. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Good hit off a very tough lefty. Now steal 2nd.

  331. blake June 19th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    would love to see an Abomb here.

  332. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    the king tonight

  333. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    crooked # inning

  334. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    YES!! Cano is time for a Ca Yes

  335. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    Dontcha know?

  336. jackamir June 19th, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    The king and his court are taking the night off..

  337. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    just keep the conga line moving…

  338. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    I expect a homer from Cano here.

  339. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Ill take a walk, HBP, or a hit though.

  340. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    YF,

    Let’s hope so!!

  341. blake June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    get a good pitch here Robbie….take the walk if he gives it.

  342. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Good miss.

  343. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    i actually predicted the finals games correctly so far and i had said the heat would lose toniight (but win in 6) so it wouldnt surprise me at all.

  344. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Good bunt Cano!

  345. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    I was wrong, but good productive out.

  346. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Moved the runners Good, not what i was expecting, but good enough

  347. blake June 19th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    got the runners over at least….as good as a bunt….would have preferred a homer.

  348. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Kay harping on Cano’s RISP struggles. had the same problem in 2008, then in 09 he was killer with RISP. it’s all in his head.

  349. Nick in SF June 19th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    “How about our collection of Mark Belangers pick up the starter for once?”

    Hassey, dear chap, the offense has not been absent during the streak. Not to worry.

  350. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Here comes the floating strike zone again…

  351. JobaTipsHisCap June 19th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Omg, that’s not a strike

  352. blake June 19th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    This isn’t a smart move by Freddy….hope Tex makes them pay

  353. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Cano .148 w/ RISP ?

  354. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Hey all. Just getting in. :(

    Did a quick perusal and I see the convenient D-Bag is back from the sewer.

    That guarantees a Yankee win.

    Going to settle in and join y’all in a while.

    GO YANKS!

  355. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    Please don’t take another one down the middle

  356. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    Batting righty:)

  357. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    CAN SOMEONE BARREL THE CATCHER ON THIS TEAM???

  358. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Nice play by Chipper.

  359. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Strike zone payback!
    Followed by a rotten luck fielder’s choice.
    That’s 2 runs cut down at the plate.

  360. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Damn it. It may not be our night. 2 runners gunned down at HP. After a fair HP umpire call on the 2-2 pitch to Teix.

  361. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    That was awful.

  362. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    He was safe

  363. JobaTipsHisCap June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Hmmm,

  364. syd_cash June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    why is Granderson trying to score on a ground ball to third???

  365. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    now we need a hit. 2 outs, RISP.

    screwed.

  366. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Where’s Jones, and why isn’t ARod on 3rd?

  367. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Why isn’t ARod on third?

  368. JobaTipsHisCap June 19th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Raul hit here

  369. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    I am PRAYING the only stupid talk on this thread came from the sewer dweller or any of his sock puppet pals, if they’re around.

    Any Yankee fan yammering about ANY supposed “Yankee deficiencies” tonight deserves to be drop kicked from here to China.

    Just sayin’

  370. I Am Winning June 19th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    2-10 RISP

    Not going to cut it for the rest of the season.

  371. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    LOL THATS A STRIKE?

  372. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Thats not a strike.

  373. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    heat getting smoked in the 1st Q.

  374. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Are u f’n kidding me…that was a foot outside.

  375. JobaTipsHisCap June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Lol, the second strike is strike? Gezz

  376. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Another ump aided punch out

  377. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    even with a hit the runner would have gotten thrown out at home tip toeing his way trying to score….

  378. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    damn wasted 2 on 0 out there…

  379. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Crappy.
    Binder lied to Girardi there with Ibanez’s 5-11 career against Venters.
    Make it 5-12.

  380. JobaTipsHisCap June 19th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    The home ump is horrible.
    Joe should come out.

  381. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Lot of game left for the Heat.

  382. qiantom June 19th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    RISP=FAIL

  383. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    luis, maybe youll eventually come around and see it is a bias. Let me know next time you see the Yankees get that strike 2 call. :)

    What, no gun play tonight ? LOL

  385. Tabbert June 19th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Tex out at home, then cant field a ball properly, then watches a 2-1 fastball right down the middle, ends up grounding out. Cost us 3 runs tonight.

  386. yankeefeminista June 19th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Andruw not available?

  387. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    double digit first half leads have been overcome in all 3 games so far. but so far the heat look in disarray.

  388. RMike June 19th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Hard to get excited about this team when this is what they do with RISP

    Are they going to try to win 2-0 games every night in the playoffs? This is the worst offensive Yankees team in the Jeter era, by far.

  389. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    There’s a reason teams don’t have ten game win streaks with regularity. Not every night will be your night. The RISP was fine last night.

  390. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Cofuzz-

    You answered my question why the lefty Ibanez stayed in. Jones hasn’t hit lefties well at all this season. Thanks

  391. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    “This is the worst offensive Yankees team in the Jeter era, by far.”

    And the best pitching staff since 1998.

  392. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Me tinks ya’ blinked on dat one luis. LOL

  393. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    4 NYY much too tired.

    But if there are a bunch of Yankee fan names that haven’t been around in a while and decided to show up tonight, my question will be answered. It’s easy to differentiate between the full-time and part-time fans.

  394. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Bridge jumpers slowly creeping back in…..

  395. I Am Winning June 19th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    I would’ve gone batter by batter with the guy. He had some gas left in the tank still. Even so, 7 innings 4 runs should be enough with this offense to win the game. But, we will see.

  396. Jerkface June 19th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    The RISP was fine last night.

    Yes but last night is the exception. The Yankees have hit a lot of HRs, so they have scored their runs, but they are still pretty abysmal with RISP.

  397. JobaTipsHisCap June 19th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Go heat!

  398. Frozen Rope June 19th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    decently pitched game for the yankees, especially with the floating joke strike zone, getting hits and guys on base, just lost the tying run at the plate twice on passive base running. thems the breaks i guess. not a horrible game, just unlucky.

  399. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Venters @ 22 pitches. Who’s coming out to face Swisher?

  400. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Tabbert,

    I would have hold Tex, but it was the right play either way, only a perfect throw gets him out. The ball that hit his foot was not an easy play by any means. He did take a strike that he could have handled better than the pitch he finally swung at it. But he has been hitting much better as of late

  401. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    “#Heat? talked a good game about matching intensity for Game 4. It was just talk. OKC in full control. They better show up for Gm 5.” sportsjc16

    Sometimes, I just love to read Joltin’ Joe and his idiocies!

  402. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    The fat lady hasn’t sung yet. Well, one did in the middle of the 7th. JOKE !!!

  403. GregD June 19th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Yanks can still rally and win this one

  404. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    “Sometimes, I just love to read Joltin’ Joe and his idiocies”

    Like declaring a game over after a quarter?

  405. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Yankees seem to prefer lately to come from behind…

  406. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Exactly, Straw. I love the guy. Bu how can he count out a team with Lebron/Wade/Bosh in the 2nd Q?

  407. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    rumors of the heat’s demise tonight have been greatly exaggerated…

  408. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Won’t lose any ground on the Flyin Showalters thanks to the Metskis.

  409. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:44 pm

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

    Me tinks ya’ blinked on dat one luis. LOL

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

    LOL! Actually when i wrote the post i saw the replay and it looked like the hand beat the tag. In fact, the Braves broadcast kept repeating the play because they thought he was safe. But yeah, he was out

  410. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    “Hard to get excited about this team when this is what they do with RISP”

    Well what an FN riot. 10 blankin’ games in a row, the best blankin’ record in the AL and second only in the majors to the NL team in the weakest division in the majors, the second best SLG and OPS in the majors, and the second best OBP in the AL, and you can’t get excited about this team?

    It’s hard to get excited about having people like you call themselves Yankee fans!

  411. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Or, I should say, chance to gain ground on the O’s…

  412. EA June 19th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Red Sox have started to heat up again too and are getting healthier. The Yanks can’t afford to let up.

  413. Nick in SF June 19th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Good news, the Mets beat Showaltimore. So that’s already a plus for us today.

  414. GregD June 19th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

  415. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    healthier? didnt the red sock’s ace just decide to take time to work on his golf game..ahem…i mean go on the dl?

  416. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    “EA June 19th, 2012 at 9:45 pm
    Red Sox have started to heat up again too and are getting healthier. The Yanks can’t afford to let up.

    What, do you work for ESPN or something?

  417. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    johan back on his game…

  418. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Swisher didn’t quite square it up there…

  419. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    He got jammed, probably a ball.

  420. Tar June 19th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    IDK about you guys but I want to see the long ball that RIISP stuff can wait till tmw.

  421. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Great plate appearance Andruw!

  422. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Stolen base?

  423. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Can’t believe it, MLB.com and MLB TV are exactly in sync. No delay by either.

  424. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Andruw is smiling about that bruise.

  425. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Tar, me too.

  426. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    I don’t think Nix is running unless O’Flaherty forgets about him.

  427. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Tar,

    As long as they score, I don’t care how. A WP will do.

  428. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Ugla-y.

  429. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    Hi Trish :)

    Take it easy on ‘emm :) :) :)

  430. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Russel “Bell 212″ Martin

  431. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Joel Peralta got ejected from the Rays game without finishing a batter.
    What happened?

  432. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Heat within 5. SJ keeping up his great record of early predictions. Didn’t he declare the Yankees season over when Mo went down?

  433. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    wow a 13 pt lead doesn’t go very far these days…

  434. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Need to square one up against Kimbrel.
    Or, as I previously suggested, run hard on the strikeouts in the dirt.

  435. Tabbert June 19th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    This team has been on fire, and there are no real concerns.. but the winning streak has been aided by AMAZING pitching. This team has not really been tearing the cover off the ball for the last 5 games. It would be nice to see a game where we post 5-9 runs every once in a while.

  436. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    ” On ‘em ” – damn blacberry ! Great team you have there !

  437. Yankee Trader June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    I’m logging off. Maybe one of the Yankees will have a little pie next inning! :)

  438. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    “Red Sox have started to heat up again too and are getting healthier. The Yanks can’t afford to let up.”

    I don’t know if going 5-5 in their last 10 and taking 2 in a row from the team with the worst record in the majors qualifies as heating up.

    I also don’t know about getting healthier since hayseed Beckett just went on the DL, as did Posednik and Sweeney.

    Their most recent series have been against a last-place team and a second-to-last place team.

    I don’t see much to be worried about, but that’s just me.

  439. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    yes sj is really being revealed as a joke this year. panicky and way too early in calling games and standings.

  440. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    mlb.com box says Peralta didn’t even throw a pitch before his ejection.

  441. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    trisha – true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 9:45 pm
    “Hard to get excited about this team when this is what they do with RISP”

    Well what an FN riot. 10 blankin’ games in a row, the best blankin’ record in the AL and second only in the majors to the NL team in the weakest division in the majors, the second best SLG and OPS in the majors, and the second best OBP in the AL, and you can’t get excited about this team?

    It’s hard to get excited about having people like you call themselves Yankee fans!

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

    As you fumble with the gun rack lock ? Oops !

    Plum fergot to say HOWDY Trish !!!

  442. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    If Kuroda got Nova’s run support he’d be like 10-2.

  443. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Good late movement on DRob’s fastball.

  444. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    DRob back to form….

  445. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    If Kuroda got Nova’s run support he’d be like 10-2.

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

    Very true

  446. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    this nba finals is over. okc blew the lead and now the heat are going to blow them away at home. thanks for coming,okc…

    Tabbert – in 3 of those 5 games the Yankees scored 5

  448. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    SJ called the Yankees season over long before Mo got injured. Think it was by the end of April.

  449. Jerkface June 19th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Joel Peralta got ejected from the Rays game without finishing a batter.
    What happened?

    Illegal substance on his glove

  450. GregD June 19th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Robertson looks a little sharper tonight

  451. luis June 19th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Good piece of hitting from Simmons

  452. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    i just wanted to be like sj44 there…. :)

  453. RS June 19th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    It is odd how Kuroda never gets any run support. Someone joked in the second inning when Swisher hit that double that there was 2 of the 3 runs Kuroda would be getting tonight, and what do you know…it’s the 9th inning and the Yankees have scored exactly 3 runs.

  454. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Jerkface,
    I was hoping it was something like that.
    Cheater.

  455. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Grandy bomb coming.

  456. EA June 19th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    “s. It would be nice to see a game where we post 5-9 runs every once in a while.”

    We just don’t have that kind of offensive anymore – hence, the calls to get a bat at the deadline.

    They either hit a bunch of solo HRs, or they don’t score.

  457. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    here we go big comeback win to keep the streak alive!!!!

    Let’s go Yankees!!!!!

  458. GregD June 19th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Walk off rally

  459. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    In 3 of those 5 games the Yankees scored 5 RUNS OR MORE! (7,5,6)!

    And 3 of those 5 games were played against the team with the BEST ERA IN THE MAJORS.

    You know the IMB slogan?

    ;)

  460. luis June 19th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Hopefully there is a pie waiting for someone in the bottom of the 9th

  461. We Want Mo Mo June 19th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Well done, Ys. You sounded just like him!

  462. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    You don’t really need to watch an NBA game before the last five minutes anyhow.

  463. Bronx Jeers June 19th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Does this one go to eleven?

  464. GregD June 19th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    pie is in pittsburgh, we expect to win now…

  471. Nick in SF June 19th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    We’ve already got the tie run at the plate, fasten your seatbelts!

  472. Jerkface June 19th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    What’s with the Papelbon imitation?

  474. Tabbert June 19th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Trisha- Like i said.. i am not really concerned. However, lets be honest.. this team is not going to have a starters era below 2 the rest of the season. The Yankees are sixth in the majors in runs scored. We are talking about a team that normally finishes 1st or second in runs scored. So, the offense is a little behind where they normally are.

  475. blake June 19th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    not much chance there.

  476. muwarriorsfan June 19th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

  477. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

  478. muwarriorsfan June 19th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    not much chance, lol!

  479. Tar June 19th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    That’s not fair

  480. Jerkface June 19th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    And they were 1 for 7 and 2 for 18 with RISP in 2 out of those 3. If they could hit as many HRs as they do, but hit better with RISP, they would be a monster team.

  481. blake June 19th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    when Kimbrel is throwing the slider for strikes you really have no chance….you just can’t cover both pitches

  482. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Gibson sucks again. Two of those were questionable.

  483. luis June 19th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    And he shows up!!!

  484. yanks 27 June 19th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    CC has gotten 5 runs or more in 11 of his 14 starts.

    Andy’s gotten 5 runs or more in 4 of his 7 starts

    Kuroda’s gotten 5 runs or more in 5 of 14 starts

    Nova’s gotten 5 or more starts in 9 of 14 starts

    Hughes has gotten 5 runs or more in 6 of 13 starts

  485. 4 NYY June 19th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    yanks can’t hit, plain and simple

  490. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    10 is good.
    Get em tomorrow guys!

  491. TheStraw June 19th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Oh well, it wasn’t going to last forever.

  492. Ys Guy June 19th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    HAHAHA

    Clutch rally guys!

  495. Jerkface June 19th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Kuroda is probably wondering if he is cursed. “I thought I left the Dodgers to get away from this…”

  496. luis June 19th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Yup, couldn’t last forever

  497. Bx is Burning June 19th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    F off back to Milwaukee, chump.

  498. Bronx Jeers June 19th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Tabbert, as you know, the Yankees were in a mighty slump for a while. So it’s going to take time for them to catch up. And you also know that the AL East is a lot tougher this year than it has been in the past. They’ll get there. They’re tied for 4th in the AL in runs, and the team in 2nd is also in last place in the AL East.

  501. TheBigOut June 19th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    Where would we be if pitching didnt carry this team?

  502. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    I respect Yankee fans who love their team . I do too and can’t wait for that Dave Stieb jersey my daughter is going to help get me ! Have a lovely night:) :) :)

  503. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    trish, why bother?

  505. Tabbert June 19th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    well, the orioles lost.. so the loss does not hurt at all. Hell of a winning streak though!

  506. cofuzz June 19th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    I’ve had 4 days off from work and a weekend…lots of winning to enjoy.
    I want a new streak starting tomorrow, though.

  507. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    mick, who knows. I guess I don’t suffer fools lightly. I also guess that I find it astounding that there are so many fans who show so little balance.

  508. mick June 19th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    trish, they are just looking to piss you off

  509. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    I got to see those last innings. I read some posts that talked about uneven umpiring.

    I don’t know how or where it was uneven, but let me ask a question. Were any of the bad calls such that the outcome of the game could have been different?

  510. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 19th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    “trish, they are just looking to piss you off”

    Absolutely not, mick. They are dead out serious. I’m not talking about the trolls or sock puppets.

  511. mick June 19th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    all ball and strike calls, uneven for both sides

  512. mick June 19th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    some of these trolls are quite clever

  513. jmills June 19th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Hi Trisha – I know u R well despite it all! Hang in there as always . Your team is pretty impressive !!! J

  514. Forest Fahs August 22nd, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Wow, how depressing is that this, not the post nevertheless the amount of sheep who get in to this crap.
