TV/Radio: YES/WCBS 880

Umpires: Fieldin Culbreth HP, Mike Estabrook 1B, Larry Vanover 2B, Dan Bellino 3B

Weather: 75 degrees, cloudy

 

Best record race: The Yankees trail the Rangers by two games for the top mark in the league, 89-61 to 87-63.

Captain streaking: Derek Jeter is riding the 13th single-season hitting streak of at least 15 games in his career. He’s at exactly 15 now, having batted .388 in this span, at 26 for 67.

Update, 1:11: Nova throws five pitches, gives up back-to-back doubles to Drew and Smith, 1-0 A’s.

Update, 1:13: So much for a carryover from Nova’s last start, 10 pitches, three doubles, 2-0. Let’s see if he can settle down.

Update, 1:17: He settled downand got the next three guys.

Update, 1:22: How hot is Ichiro? He’s 12-for-16 hot after his solo shot, 2-1.

Update, 1:29: Nicely done by A-Rod to get his hand down on the plate and score on Cano’s single, 2-2. Walk and balk by Blackley set that up.

Update, 1:38: Bases loaded, two outs for ice-cold Andruw Jones, batting .197.

Update, 1:41: RBI walk on four pitches, 3-2.

Update, 1:44: Blackley got Stewart on a weak grounder for the final out, but he threw 40 pitches in the first. I think 23 were balls.

Update, 1:49: Much better for Nova, 1-2-3 second, three grounders.

Update, 1:55: Ichiro now 13 for last 17 after single. But he’s out trying to go to third on A-Rod’s single, although A-Rod moved up on the throw.

Update, 2:01: A’s just gave away a run, easy grounder booted by Pennington at second to extend the inning and Blackley wild pitches the run home, 4-2.

Update, 2:08: Nova gives up leadoff HR to Drew, shot over the CF fence, 4-3 in the third.

Update, 2:13: One-out four-pitch walk and then bloop single. Warmup action in the Yankees pen. Looks like Rapada.

Update, 2:15: Another walk. Nova is all over the place and now he’s done.

Update, 2:20: Excellent work by Rapada, 1-2-3 double play to get out of the bases-loaded mess that Nova left him. Josh Reddick had stepped in with 29 homers. The A’s are pulling Blackley, too. Jim Miller will take the ball. Not much good to say about either starter today.

Update, 2:36: Pennington RBI single, 4-4.

Update, 2:41: Two outs, first and third, Lowe comes on.

Update, 4:35: 1-2-3 inning for Joba.

Update, 2:44: Diving stop by Jeter and the Yankees hold it there.

Update, 3:00: Lowe gives up a leadoff single and then gets three straight. I saw Lowe was lamenting the other day that he might be left off the postseason roster, but he only blames himself for not pitching well enough this season. He had wanted to come here for a chance to pitch in October after the Indians let him go and after he went to Florida to tweak his mechanics.

Update, 3:06: Ibanez first pinch HR of the season, also snaps 0-for-18 slide, solo shot to right. So it’s 5-4 Yankees in the fifth.

Update, 3:08: Orioles leading at Boston 5-3, bottom six.

Update, 3:12: Ibanez stays on in right, Swisher moves to first. Ibanez hit for McGehee.

Update, 3:17: Lowe looking good, 1-2-3 sixth. Maybe they should consider him for the postseason roster, lot of October experience, although he can be erratic, too.

Update, 3:21: Derek Jeter singles to start the sixth, now has a season-high 16-game hitting streak. Lefty Jerry Blevins comes in to pitch.

Update, 3:24: Ichiro bunts Jeter to second. Relentless Orioles up 6-3 in the seventh, not that they’re playing a good team up in Boston.

Update, 3:37: 6-5 Baltimore, bottom seven. Relentess Red Sox? Logan coming in to replace Lowe after a one-out walk in the seventh, nice job by Lowe over 2 2/3.

Update, 3:34: Logan gives up a single and a sac fly to Carter, 5-5.

Update, 3:48: Just want to offer my condolences to Brian Cashman and family on the death of his dad earlier today in Florida. John Cashman Jr. was 72. He had been suffering from pancreatic cancer. He had been a leading figure in the harness racing industry and was a member of the Harness Racing Hall of Fame.

Update, 3:55: Ryan Cook comes on after Nick Swisher bloops a leadoff single and Ibanez gets hit by a pitch.

Update, 3:58: Sacrifice by Nix. Second and third, one out for Granderson.

Update, 4:00: Granderson fouls out. Up to Chavez, pinch hitting for Stewart.

Update, 4:03: Chavez goes down looking, now just 4 for 32 as a pinch hitter. He stays in at third. Martin on to catch.

Update, 4:05: Ibanez can’t hold a ball at the wall in right-center, leadoff double.

Update, 4:09: One out now. And Boston-Baltimore 6-6 bottom nine.

Update, 4:13: Two outs, second and third, Jonny Gomez will pinch hit.

Update, 4:16: Logan hits Gomes with an 0-2 pitch. Bases loaded. Logan is out. Eppley is in.

Update, 4:19: Boston-Baltimore going to the 10th.

Update, 4:24: Eppley gets it done, fly to center by Cespedes.

Update, 4:25: Girardi resisting temptation so far, Joba is warming. We know he wants to avoid using Soriano and Robertson today if possible.

Update, 4:28: 1-2-3 eighth for Yankees. Joba coming in. Bottom 10 at Fenway, 6-6.

Update, 4:35: Joba strikes out the first two. Freddy Garcia throwing in pen. Grant Balfour takes over for A’s.

Update, 4:43: Top 11 at Fenway. Yankees have Chris Dickerson pinch running at first after Swisher’s one-out single in the ninth.

Update, 4:48: Two outs, Dickerson at second. Another walkoff hit for Martin?

Update, 4:51: Martin pops to second. Extra innings. Garcia takes over. Pearce will play first.

Update, 4:58: Garcia gets them 1-2-3, albeit with one fly to the left field wall. Top 12 now, Orioles 6, Red Sox 6.

Update, 5:05: Jim Thome delivers RBI ground-rule double, 7-6 Orioles, top 12.

Update, 5:07: On to the 11th here. 8-6 Orioles.

Update, 5:12: Red Sox are caving in, 9-6 Orioles.

Update, 5:18: Bases loaded, two outs for Reddick.

Update, 5:21: Garcia gets out of it thanks to a diving catch by Pearce at first. Looked like Teixeira there.

Update, 5:28: 1-2-3 11th for Yankees. Orioles now a half game back after 9-6 win in 12.

Update, 5:33: Three scoreless innings now for Garcia. On to the home 12th.

Update, 5:39: Ibanez takes a chance and makes second, a one-out double. Another walkoff hit for Martin?

Update, 5:44: After a wild pitch, Martin grounds to second. The throw goes home, Ibanez tries to knock over Norris, but Norris holds the ball. Ibanez is out.

Update, 5:48: Granderson walks, first and second, two outs. Chavez up. Norris looks like he got crossed up, passed ball, second and third.

Update, 5:51: Chavez draws an unintentional intentional walk, I think. Bases loaded. Jeter up. Just about everybody on their feet here.

Update, 5:54: Jeter flies out. On to the 13th. Nunez takes third, Chavez moves to first.

Update, 6:01: Well, this got out of hand in a hurry. Two-runHR by Gomes off Garcia, then Cespedes made it back-to-back blasts; this was a tremendous one to the second deck in left, 8-5 A’s. If the Yankees lose, they can blame themselves because they had golden chances for more runs in this game.

Update, 6:05: Batting practice for the A’s. Chris Carter reaches the second deck in left off Justin Thomas, 9-5.

Update, 6:14: Singles by Ichiro and A-Rod to start the inning.

Update, 6:17: Single by Cano, bases loaded. Pedro Figueroa is done after three batters. Righty Pat Neshek is coming on.

Update, 6:21: Wild pitch 9-6. Sac fly by Nunez 9-7.

Update, 6:24: Ibanez two-run shot, we’re tied again, 9-9.

Update, 6:30: Cory Wade on for the 14th.

Update, 6:36: Wade retires three straight. Tyson Ross on for the A’s.

Update, 6:42: Leadoff single for Chavez. Melky Mesa pinch runs for him, Mesa’s MLB debut.

Update, 6:43: Captain bunts him over. Ichiro up. Intentional walk. A-Rod up.

Update, 6:46: A-Rod singles to center, but Mesa misses third and has to go back. Bases loaded for Cano.

Update, 6:48: Cano hits into a 1-2 force. Nunez up.

Update, 6:51: Mesa can exhale, Yankees win 10-9 in 14 on error at first on Nunez’s grounder. Yankees still up by a game.

    Line up 6-9 is not exactly murderer’s row. Hope for the best!

  2. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Both those hits were elevated. Keep the ball down!

  3. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Wow just a terrible start, and how is that a double!

  4. austinmac September 22nd, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    This team cannot fall too far behind. Each run is a mountain these days.

  5. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    The second double is probably caught by a good left fielder…

  6. austinmac September 22nd, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    That was a double because it took Jones ten minutes to get to the ball.

  7. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    All his pitches are elevated right now.

  8. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    “The second double is probably caught by a good left fielder”

    And the third one he’s thrown out at second base.

  9. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    I love that Girardi finally moved Ichiro up to 2nd but of course he has to balance that move by playing Andruw.

  10. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    Good job stranding that runner at third.

  11. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    That’s a nice bounce back from Nova. No reason that the Yanks can’t put up a big number today against Blackley.

  12. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    Lets get to work Yanks!!
    Score early & often!!!!

  13. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    Ok then. There’s the 2 for Oakland. Nova settles down, Yanks score 7, all is well.

  14. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    How much more does Girardi need to see? Stop sticking with players who suck for so long just because they are veterans. I’d rather see Gardner play and bunt every at bat!

  15. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    FB command has to be better, but good bounceback.

  16. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    This guy has been watching Andy pitch.

  17. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    ON FIRE!!!

  18. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Ichi en fuego y encencido y volcanito!

  19. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    IchiBomb======

  20. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Ichiro is on some type of streak!

  21. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Gotta give credit to Girardi for finally realizing that the guy should be near the top of the order for now.

  22. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Good afternoon,

    An Ichi-bomb!!

    YF…Yup, it was good that they called some breaking balls…That should help him later on with the FB hopefully…He is having the same problems with opening up too soon and lowering the arm slot as a result the ball stays up.

  23. austinmac September 22nd, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    That was a bullet. I’m impressed.

  24. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 1:21 pm
    Ichi en fuego y encencido y volcanito!

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

    :D

  25. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Ichiro loves playing for a contender.. He has come up huge when the pressure games were here!!!!

  26. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    That was a bad send. But a great result :D

  27. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    jack-

    I think Ichiro is in heaven right now playing for the Yankees. They have had their struggles but playing meaningful baseball means the world to the guy… great competitor!

  28. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Beautiful hitting and great slide.

  29. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    YF,

    Got an e-mail from our mutual friend :( I will write him later on.

    That was a crazy sent home…We were lucky there….Excellent at bat by Cano

  30. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    2-2! That’s how you get back in a game quickly! Nice pick me up to Nova.

  31. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Alex saved that play. I can’t say enough about how much he leads by example.

  32. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Nice to see the top of the order coming through…. I’ll admit McGehee-Nix-Jones-Stewart doesn’t fill me with confidence but hopefully they’ll prove me wrong!

  33. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    I would realease Swish here

  34. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Man, Arod is dead if that throw is even halfway decent. The really need a different 3B coach next year.

  35. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Luis

    Tell him to come back for us!

  36. UnKnown September 22nd, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    Dumb Ichiro should be batting 8th and bunting. Small ball amarite…

    Lohud gets another one right. Bat Ichiro higher in the order.

  37. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 1:31 pm
    Luis

    Tell him to come back for us!

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

    Will do Tar ;)

  38. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Good CU :mad:

  39. austinmac September 22nd, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    McGehee or Pearce? What a choice. Come back Tex.

  40. Madrugador September 22nd, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Jones up, oh well.

  41. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Please….Make up for the whole second half of the season

  42. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Here is your moment, Andruw.

    (it’s ok to take a walk)

  43. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    Don’t swing

  44. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    :lol:

  45. ricardo1020 September 22nd, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Smiley has figured it out…leave the bat on your shoulder. Attaboy!

  46. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    This Blakely guy has pitched a whole game on one inning

  47. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Got the lead back…Nova keep the ball down

  48. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Shutdown inning, PLEASE IVAN!!!!!!

  49. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Just your typical 40 minute 1st inning….

  50. ricardo1020 September 22nd, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Ivan will be inspired by Andruw’s failure to fail!

  51. GregD September 22nd, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    I was riding home when I heard the three straight doubles….nice to see the Yanks bounce back :)

  52. GregD September 22nd, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Nice inning by Nova!!!

  53. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Good bounce back inning…Still, that arm angle seems a little low, hence the horizontal movement on the ball. Especially on those pitches he threw toward the outside corner to lefties.

  54. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    I don’t think Blackley even caught his breath. And here we come again. :twisted:

  55. GregD September 22nd, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    let’s get another 3 runs

  56. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Ichiban

  57. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Nice wedge. :)

  58. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Ichiro!

  59. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Cespedes has a cannon of an arm

  60. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Ichiro didn’t learn his lesson last night.

  61. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Cespedes would have looked good in pinstripes :(

  62. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    The ball must be a hot potato

  63. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 1:58 pm
    Cespedes would have looked good in pinstripes

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

    :( Yup

  64. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Not pretty…but I’ll take it

  65. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Run hard to first Robbie!

  66. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    Swishey

  67. ricardo1020 September 22nd, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    When will the binder address Cano’s lack of hustle? Natural ability only takes you so far.

  68. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    What was that? a CU? or a flat slider?

  69. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    The homer was on a CB hanger

  70. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    The Amount of homeruns the Yankee pitchers have given up this year is absolutely disgusting!!!!

  71. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    CU

  72. Melkmanisinhotlanta September 22nd, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    “Not to defend a longtime hardcore offender, but it was just as likely — actually more likely — a debt crisis reference rather than anti-Mediterraneanism.”

    Thanks for spelling it out. libs always lead with their emotions lolol so typical.

  73. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    CB

  74. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    Someone go out and talk to Nova

  75. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    Thanks nova

  76. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    Liked the quick hook in this case

  77. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    Shut the front door!!!!!

  78. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    Liked the quick hook in this case

    We’ll see after Rapada has finished this inning. Not confident.

  79. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Great job Clay. Every confidence in you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Thank you rapada

  81. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Good job Rapady.

  82. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    1-2-3 Rapadainski—( the magician)

  83. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    to leave an established reliever like eppley or even lowe off the PS for Nova, who has been erratic and enigmatic would be a mistake.

  84. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    Bruceb

    Nova had so much trouble with his mechanics and his command that it was the right call. We can’t afford to lose many games, especially if you have a lead. It worked out, but if it didn’t it owuld have been the right call regardless.

  85. Duh Innings II September 22nd, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    I’m thrilled by Ichiro’s torrid run but he has to be smarter on the basepaths and realize he’s not 30 years old anymore.

    No more baserunning mistakes by any Yankee from hereonin.

    Nova is a #4 starter, nothing more, nothing less, until he proves otherwise.

    He’ll probably be no better than a #3 starter but that’s ok as most pitchers can only be that.

    Good job by Rapada who should be re-signed.

  86. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    3-3 Red Sox-O’s

  87. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    I like the aggressive baserunning by Ichiro. It took a very good throw to get him.

  88. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    I like the aggressive baserunning by Ichiro. It took a very good throw to get him.

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

    Me too…Even though, there is a basic baseball rule that you never surrender the second out on third.

  89. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    I like Granderson in and Mr Jones out

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

    Me too…Even though, there is a basic baseball rule that you never surrender the second out on third.

    It’s actually don’t make the first or third out at third base.

  91. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    True JS

  92. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    my bad

  93. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    I thought the rule was not to make the first or third out at third base.

  94. Cashmoney September 22nd, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    nova’s era is 6.79 in the second half, he should be pitching in the Dutch League…

  95. Boston Jim September 22nd, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    great work supa Nova

  96. Cashmoney September 22nd, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    El Vatos is sucking it up, no more no less.

  97. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    I guess Freddy has fallen behind Lowe in the pecking order.

  98. jmills September 22nd, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    Hi guys! Is there a reson I have to keep doing the password every once in a while on this blackberry to comment? What does it mean to run out of, ” cookies?”

    On better notes – my Canadian boy did good!!! Not to toot my horn, but I did say to get posterior to Martin :)

  99. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    Lets explode for a crooked number!!!! Top of the order….

  100. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    What a contrast to last night’s game. Terrible pitching all round. Going to be a very long afternoon.

    Ichi, Ichi ya yah!!

  102. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    Snuck home to check out the score. What?????

    GO YANKS!

    DON’T GO O’S!

    Can’t wait to find out background on this one. Looks like Nova didn’t have a repeat performance.

    Praying that Girardi doesn’t burn the entire pen and let’s Lowe get a few innings in anyway.

    Tied in beantown.

    :(

    Later y’all.

  103. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    Lowe pitching for his Yankee life!!

  104. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    there is a basic baseball rule that you never surrender the second out on third.
    ================
    you mean 3rd out.

  105. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    Surprised we haven’t seen Freddy yet. Red Sox sucking big time again I see.

  106. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    would rather have lowe for middle relief than nova, sorry…

  107. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    ” Is there a reson I have to keep doing the password every once in a while on this blackberry to comment?”

    It happens every once in a while on my android too. It’s probably worse on a blackberry because everything is worse on a blackberry.

  108. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    Raul- Raul–Teed that one up!!!

  109. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    That’s fine as long as it doesn’t mean more playing time for Ibanez.

  110. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    Surprised we haven’t seen Freddy yet.
    =======================
    he hasn’t pitched in 2 weeks, safe to say he is done.

  111. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    D Lowe working quick, growing strikes. Looks good.

  112. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    Nice inning, Lowe. Glad I just got home, can imagine the comments about everything that has gone before.

    Let’s go, boys. Tack a few on this inning. This will be a sweep!

  113. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but it is a bit alarming that scrap heap Lowe is now our most reliable long/middle relief option

  114. Against All Odds September 22nd, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    R.I.P. to John Cashman

  115. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    Cap’n starts us off. Love me some runs here.

  116. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    It would be just like Girardi to take out Lowe for the next lefty, which would be a bad move. Ride Lowe as far as he takes them in this game.

  117. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    Atta boy Jete

  118. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    tucker,
    Right on, and I actually rode in one of your cars.

  119. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    If Lowe gets a ws ring with the yanks this year, has he already done more for the team than Mendoza did for the Sox ws winning team?

  120. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    Tom, wish I had some Intellectual Property claim on that vehicle. Alas, no such luck.

  121. Cashmoney September 22nd, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    Mmm… disrespecting Cano… smack that ball Robbie!

  122. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    Make them pay, Robi!

  123. Cashmoney September 22nd, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    It’s not a stretch to think Nova won’t be in the PS rotation come Oct.. but looking at the lights of eppley, wade and other arms with marginal stuff, I still take him over that crew… mid inning and long man duty perhaps. And that’s long fall from grace for Nova.

  124. sunny615 September 22nd, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Good job cano. Nice piece of situational hitting there.

  125. longtimefan September 22nd, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    Cano looks like he sleep walking, no way is this guy worth 20 mill a yr or a contract more than 5 yrs

  126. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    As long as Lowe keeps that sinker down, he’ll be alright.

  127. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    6-5 o’s—7th

  128. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    Longtimefan, the guys wirth about 5yrz and 60mil tops!

  129. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    Would have left Lowe in there. His command is a bit off, but his sinker is still diving and he’s missing low.

  130. longtimefan September 22nd, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    Nyy girl penny. Sounds right to me

  131. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    As I said …

  132. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    Do we have any dependable relievers anymore? This is pitiful.

  133. longtimefan September 22nd, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    Girardi thinks way too much of Logan–average pitcher at best

  134. umbrelladoc September 22nd, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    Logan wasn’t horrible. The IF should have gotten that hit. Although if Cano got to it, Logan forgot to cover 1st again. Still that prevents the runner from getting to 3rd and scoring.

  135. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    What a surprise Girardi’s obsession with bringing in a lefty hurts them again. Logan is so over used and isn’t even that good to begin with. Lowe was missing low there was no reason to take him out. Girardi needs a better feel for the game instead of always thinking he needs a lefty because a lefty is batting. Tex’s injury really hurts because any decent 1st basemen makes that play at 1st base. That’s a ball that Swish has to field.

  136. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    Lowe could have induced a double-play ball. Reddick is usually a threat, but look at his swings today. Reddick is beyond frustrated. A manager needs to read the body language and swings of the opposition … Not a smart move to pull Lowe.

  137. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    lowe was rolling…joe g thinks too much or not enough….not sure

  138. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    If Tex hit that pop up, he’d be on second. Tex always runs out pop ups.

  139. umbrelladoc September 22nd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Veteran move by Ibanez.

  140. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    lay it down nixie

  141. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    a hit and HBP. if the yankees cant score, i give up :)

  142. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    6-6 8th

  143. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    another reason ichi up 2nd pays, nice bunt he laid d own with jeter on

  144. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    6-6 8th
    =====
    didnt adam jones just homer?

  145. umbrelladoc September 22nd, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    Grandy against a lefty 2nd and 3rd one out isn’t the best scenario, so unless the a’s have someone up don’t get the change. he might walk Grandy if the bunt is successful, but then you get Dickerson for Stewart.

  146. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Do you pinch run Gardner for Ibanez at second?

  147. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    they will pay for this

  148. umbrelladoc September 22nd, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    Contact Curtis PLEASE!

  149. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 3:59 pm

  150. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 4:00 pm

  151. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:00 pm

    great ab grandy.. just awesome!!!!

  152. syd_cash September 22nd, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    c’mon he’s in foul territory someones gotta reach over and grab the ball push him…

  153. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    Need a little help for the Sox today…

  154. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    yanks cant even score with 1out man on 1st and 2nd? thats hideous!

  155. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    this clown drops the ball…unreal

  156. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    That ball has to be caught. You can’t have Ibanez and Jones in the outfield and not expect it to cost you. Just pathetic.

  157. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    oakland will score this run… bet on it.

  158. syd_cash September 22nd, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    terrible

  159. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    6-6 bot 9th

  160. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    I hate when Logan faces righties. He either walks them or gives up a hit. Where is Wade, Joba or Eppley? Girardi’s obsession with Logan is really hard to figure out.

  161. longtimefan September 22nd, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Where the hell is Dickerson, should be in right, ans Logan should be out

  162. nhyankeefan September 22nd, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    Grandy man continues to be all or nothing…kills this lineup

  163. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Can a righty get up in the bullpen please? Girardi is a totally different manger once September hits. Then he craps his pants and makes some weird moves.

  164. umbrelladoc September 22nd, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    You could have put Martin in Ibanez’ slot and moved swisher to RF and Chavez to first.

  165. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 4:12 pm

    Drew can hit. This makes me nervous.

  166. Duh Innings II September 22nd, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    Good job having Ibanez in the field in a game where the Yanks risk falling back into a tie with Baltimore for the division lead, Girardi. Idiot.

    Now Boston has tied the game so the Yanks could blow a chance to gain a game on Baltimore if Boston wins.

    Cano is not worth a contract of five or more years or $20M per year.

    He will turn 30 years old never having a season where he hit 30 or more homeruns AND driven in 100 or more runs (at this rate, 90 or more runs with his pathetic 79 RBI.)

    He is a very good hitter but not as good a hitter (or OBP man) as Jeter.

    He hits for power but not even close to as much as prime A-Rod hit for power.

    Cano is Mr. Almost. Almost a 30-100 man. Almost having a breakout season. Almost a batting champion. Almost this, almost that, and almost isn’t good enough, or at least not good enough to ask for more money than Jeter got after 2000.

    How could the Yanks possibly give a 31-year old (what Cano will be on 10/22/13) who has never had a breakout season (to me at least .300 BA, 30 HR, and 100 RBI which are not impossible) five years or more?

    Four years at $18M per year for $72M taking Cano through age 35 would be the third highest contract by a homegrown Yankee player (position player or pitcher) in club history as it should be as Cano is not as great as Jeter or Bernie Williams and spare me “Cano plays 2B”. Get back to me when he is the best all-around player on a World Champion Yankee team like Bernie was in 1996, Jeter in 1998-2000 and 2009.

    History shows Hall Of Fame secondbasemen are not great from age 32 on even though they have nice to MVP age 32 seasons.

    Ryne Sandberg had a nice age 32 season hitting .309 but he had no power that year, missed his age 35 season, and was a shell of his through age 31 self from age 32 on.

    Joe Morgan had an NLMVP age 32 season – the second of back to back NLMVP seasons – but was a shadow of his through 32 self from age 33 on (although he did have a nice age 33 season.)

    Chase Utley is not a Hall Of Famer but look at him since age 31 – not the player he was before that.

  167. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    There is no excuse for having a 40 year old play the outfield in a tied game in the 8th inning. No excuse. Girardi always goes for offense over defense and it might cost them the game if Gomes gets a hit. Why is Logan facing another righty? Girardi makes no sense sometimes.

  168. syd_cash September 22nd, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    this is very surprising as Girardi loves the match ups….

  169. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    0-2 and he HITS HIM?????????? Come on!!!!!

  170. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    Eppley vs Cespedes…

  171. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    A hit, walk and hit batter to righties from a lefty pitcher. Now Joey binder finally brings in a righty. He might not like the righty options but you can’t leave Logan in there for a whole inning against rigthies. It doesn’t make any sense.

  172. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    Girardi is keepin Ibanez in because the game is tied (for now). He’s hoping there is another HR in that bat today… My biggest beef with Girardi was pulling Lowe … Sox and O’s go extras.

  173. Duh Innings II September 22nd, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    Captain Clutch this is the same manager who had his ace intentionally walk Sean @#$%ing Rodiguez to load the bases to face Carlos Pena, the biggest homerun threat on the Rays and one of the biggest homerun threats in MLB in the season opener, and set up Pena’s grandslam the reason why the Yanks aren’t two games up on Baltimore with a chance to go up three games and only one game behind Texas for homefield advantage throughout the AL postseason as I type.

    Where are all you “It’s only the season opener” morons now? (Not you Captain Clutch.)

    Game 1 is just as important as any game after that.

  174. syd_cash September 22nd, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    hasn’t Baltimore played to extra’s like the last three games in a row

  175. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    You have to give Eppley some breathing room. You can’t bring him in with the bases loaded.

  176. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    Throw strikes dammitttt

  177. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    Lucky that pitch hit Gomes or a run scores on a wild pitch.

    The Yankees are trying hard to not take advantage of any breaks and lose this game

  178. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    ***EXHALE***

  179. Duh Innings II September 22nd, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    —————

    Yeah cuz a guy who was 2 for 45 before his solo shot is gonna hit another homerun – are you serious?

    LOL @ you wanting the worst defensive outfielder in the field.

    Ibanez served his purpose (then go-ahead run), time for him to be replaced in the field.

  180. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    Lucky.

    Now get a run and pray Chamberlain can close it out.

  181. syd_cash September 22nd, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    disaster averted

  182. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    Eppley saves Girardi’s bacon. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that he was once a major league manager. He really lacks the feel for certain spots and when to pull guys. He had a really quick hook on Nova and Lowe and then leaves Logan out there forever. They have to bring in Dickerson for defense in RF.

  183. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    once a major league manager=once a major league catcher

  184. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:28 pm

  185. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    Need a walk-off to win

  186. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    YT,
    Then another walkoff. Works for me.

  187. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    glad to see that yankees gave a valiant effort that inning!!

  188. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Hopefully Joba can keep the ball in the ballpark. I still can’t figure out why he throws so many sliders.

  189. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Almost time to go back to your lairs, fellas. We win this game in the 9th.

  190. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    96 mph fast balls where he’s throwing them will do the job, then the breaking pitch away will finish it.

  191. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    Why was Eppley only used for 1 batter in a tied game? Very weird. Garcia???? please no.

  192. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    thank you joba!

  196. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    If Garcia is really coming in for the 10th the Yanks better win it in the 9th. I would go with Wade before Garcia.

  197. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Ok Joba, now thru the heart of their order.

    OK Offense-time to call this game a wrap and put the A’s away.

    Red Sox threatening

  198. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Balfour reminds me of Farnsworth. Throws hard but very straight.

  199. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Swisher not looking for a simple hit

  200. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    YT,
    but he got one. I’ll miss him if they let him go.

  201. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    But a simple hit it is! :)

  202. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Lets end it here so we don’t have to see Garcia give it up in the 10th.

  203. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    SB-A hit down RF line and we can go home.

  204. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    That pitch was low. Stupid ump…

  205. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Now the question is how many runs does Garcia give up in this inning. Just one or does he put this game out of reach?! I would definitely pitch Wade over him but he is in Girardi’s dog house.

  206. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Balfour is a good pitcher pitching good, so nothing to be embarrassed about there, but Ibanez took the only pitch he could handle (1st) and the RISP stuff is just, well, insane at this point

  207. sunny615 September 22nd, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    Jeezus Christ Garcia. Please don’t suck.

  208. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Let’s go, Freddy, hold these guys down. You know what you’re doing, just do it for one inning.

  210. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 4:58 pm

  214. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Absolutely expected to come in to find out the score of the game, not to see the game still going on.

    I’m thinking these are good signs for the Yanks. Another extra inning win?

  215. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Freddy’s in? YAY FREDDY!!!!!

  216. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    Damn. Thome just hit one out.

  217. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    It looks like the Yanks are going to have to win this game on a homerun. They have so many dead spots in the lineup now and they will never get back to back hits.

  218. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    This is AGONY.

  219. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    OK Balfour at 27 pitches. Time to win the game.

  220. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Guess I got that wrong. Igt looked like a homer but maybe it was a GRD. Anyway, the O’s went ahead by a run.

    Great job Aceves.

  221. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Did anyone seriously expect the Os to lose an extra-inning game? Team of destiny.

  222. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Expected? Probably not. Hoped? Big time.

  223. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    There you go, trisha, another great call.

  224. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    These umps are terrible. You could tell right away that he wasn’t on the bag.

  225. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    8-6 now. Aceves is probably pitching the role of vengeful devil.

    :evil:

  226. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    16 in a row extra-innings wins at odds of around 16,000-1. Unreal.

  227. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:08 pm

  228. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Sox will walk off

    but in our game here in Metropolis, never did 5 runs suddenly seem so much like a shutout

  229. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Now we have to follow suit. Two in a row would be nice enough for me.

    If the Yankees can get thru this inning unscathed, then maybe we’ll see another Ichiro ignited comeback.

  232. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Don’t think of the O’s as a team of destiny. Think of them as a team that will well understand that they can now compete with the big guys. But I’m thinking they are going to get put away in the post, maybe by the Yankees.

  233. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    That ball has to be caught. I know the sun is bad but Granderson always misplays balls. His all around play is really hurting them.

  234. The Return of Stoneburner September 22nd, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Ichiro, Swisher, Gardner, S. Hairston 2013 OF :)

  235. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    9-6.

    Too bad Chucky isn’t pitching this series.

  236. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    I would walk Cespedes here. He is the only major threat in their lineup.

  237. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    Aceves should never be allowed to take the mound again – well, until our series with the Sux. Then put him in every game.

  238. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Who’s Chucky- and don’t tell me it’s that puppet that hides in the closet to scare you at night?

  239. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    It’s funny how Girardi always finds one random guy that he wants to walk

  240. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Chucky is Bucholz.

    Notice the similarity.

  241. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Crap.

  242. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    He walked the guy with 3 hits today and the game-tying homer last night.
    Not especially random.

  243. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    COME ON FREDDY!!! GIVE IT YOUR BEST!

  244. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    C’mon Freddy. I’m getting too sweaty.

  245. Bobby Murcer September 22nd, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Don’t walk people intentionally in extra innings unless they are named
    Ted Williams, Barry Bonds, or Miguel Cabrera.

  246. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    That’s why I hate walking someone with a pitcher like Garcia on the mound. You can’t put extra guys on base when you never know if Garcia is going to throw strikes. Girardi tried to be too cute and it might cost them.

  247. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    OMG!!!

  248. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    OH MY GOD!!!!!

    Let all the Pearce detractors choke on their coke!!!!

    :lol:

    So knowledgable about players and their abilities.

  249. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Nice play by Pierce!!! Now let’s win this game!!!

  250. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Whew. Tightrope still intact.

  251. Bobby Murcer September 22nd, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    We got away with it. Let’s capitalize.

  252. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    The Yanks need to win it this inning… pitching might not hold much longer

  253. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    is Reddick better with his stats than Swisher is with his stats, or just younger?

  254. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Pearce saved Christmas.

    A’s radio announcer: “Height of frustration for the A’s!”

  255. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    OK, Freddy. We won’t need another pitcher, even if we should happen to have one. Get’em now, guys.

  256. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    “Girardi tried to be too cute and it might cost them.”

    I always know when you go fatalistic it’s a good sign. You always end up being wrong. I think it’s time for you to say the Yankees wonty win this game!

    :D

  257. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    The Yankees deserve to lose this game. Luckilly Pearce saved a bases clearing double.

    Now Ichiro show your teammates how it’s done and get a run home

  258. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    Let’s go offense!!! We don’t want Garcia to pitch a 3rd inning.

  259. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    And on Freddy’s behalf, if Curtis caught that fly out Freddy might have been out of the inning.

  260. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    Game.

    Maybe tomorrow the Sux will win.

  261. Bobby Murcer September 22nd, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    Baltimore can enjoy its charmed year as far as 1-run and extra-inning
    games. Next year, they’ll be .500 in both categories. I hate them more
    than the Red Sox.

  262. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    Anyone – please give me the rundown on Yankee pitchers today, just in terms of how many pitchers we’ve had in the game. Is our pen pretty depleted?

  263. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Yeah that pen is depleted if they don’t want to use Robertson or Soriano. mlb.com lists available pitchers.

  264. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Arod is late on almost every pitch recently. That pitch was right there to hit also. Cano is also off. It’s hard to win games late when your big boys are so lost.

  265. lil m September 22nd, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Big bats not getting it done :(

  266. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    I think the O’s have overachieved mightily, but they definitely have hung in there.

    I just don’t see them having the same lucky karma throughout the post season. JMO

  267. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    does anyone recall a worse Cano slump? “future MVP”s don’t let them last this long…good player though on many counts, obviously

  268. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Cano’s been pretty bad in September… need him to get it going again.

  269. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    I’m gone. If I turn off the game the Yankees should win, so goodbye!

  270. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    “Arod is late on almost every pitch recently. That pitch was right there to hit also. Cano is also off. It’s hard to win games late when your big boys are so lost.”

    It can’t be the quality of the A’s bullpen, can it? Never that. It’s that our boys are lost.

  271. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Thanks Tyler. I’ll check it out.

  272. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Who’s left in the pen? I miss Cone

  273. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    And herein lies the beauty of longmen in the pen.

    GO CHIEF!

  274. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Not much left in the ‘pen…. Wade/Soriano/Robertson. Then guys like Thomas/Warren.

  275. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Since Robertson and Soraino aren’t available the rest of the bullpen is Wade and Phelps. They will either lose it with Garcia on the mound or win it with the offense. I don’t think Garcia is going to keep throwing up zeros. The A’s are starting to hit the ball hard.

  276. PacoDooley September 22nd, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    How long before Freddy gives up a meaty one and they fall behind? I just don’t feel any confidence with him on the mound.

  277. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    who would you have picked to throw the best in this game, Karim Garcia, Andy Garcia or Freddy Garcia?

  278. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    The big mouths in the booths were all but saying that the A’s were going to score because it was the second time through the lineup for Freddy and they saw all Freddy’s stuff. Stuff a sock in your mouth, Singleton. Guess you got it wrong. Love the backpeddling too.

    CHIEF!

  279. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    It can’t be the quality of the A’s bullpen, can it? Never that. It’s that our boys are lost.

    But they don’t face an amalgam of the bullpen, they face individual pitchers, and Scribner has one of highest ERA’s and WHIPS in the bullpen. A-rod got 2 hanging curve balls and flew out on the 2nd.

  280. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    The top of the order has to get the job done because the bottom is a lot of easy outs.

  281. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    “How long before Freddy gives up a meaty one and they fall behind? I just don’t feel any confidence with him on the mound.”

    I feel nothing BUT confidence, certainly based on his last inning.

    That said, let’s score this inning and end it.

  282. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    Dickerson is going to show Joe why needs to play more.

  283. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    “The top of the order has to get the job done because the bottom is a lot of easy outs.”

    That’s what happens when you load the top and leave the bottom uncovered.

    I like Ichiro in the 8 hole by the way.

  284. Bobby Murcer September 22nd, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    We can’t reasonably expect any more from Freddy. We either win it
    now, or just have to face the (nearly) inevitable run or two in the next
    inning.

  285. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Now who plays 1st base? Nunez?? lol

  286. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Then I guess Arod is done because lohud says so.

  287. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Freddy, the ageless wonder. Now let’s get him the win, fercrissakes. I have to cook supper here, ya know? The cat’s complaining already. Walk off, now.

  288. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    COME ON RAUL!!!

  289. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    as these Ks pile up ever higher, just reminded me time to rake some leaves

  290. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    That’s what happens when you load the top and leave the bottom uncovered.

    Don’t be ridiculous this makes no sense. Not to mention the bottom of the order has chavez, granderson, and martin in it.

  291. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:39 pm

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

    Because Ibanez is old and worthless. Lohud said so.

    LMAO!!!!!

  292. lil m September 22nd, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Wow Ibanez!!! That was exciting/scary watching him run!!

  293. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    pinch run Gardner!!!

  294. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    I like the optimism but confidence in Garcia? Lets be real…

    Wily vet, who’d have thunk it.

  296. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Wow look at the hustle from Ibanez. Cano is 10 year younger than him and he would never hustle like that for a double.

  297. antisocial scrooge September 22nd, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Brett Gardner still hasn’t been activated.

  298. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Chavez to 1B, Nunez to 3B maybe…

  299. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    “Don’t be ridiculous this makes no sense. Not to mention the bottom of the order has chavez, granderson, and martin in it.”

    Talk to the person who suggested the bottom had no hitters.

    “Scribner has one of highest ERA’s and WHIPS in the bullpen”

    He’s never been known to have a good game either.

    LMAO!!!

  300. MG September 22nd, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    what a great play by Ibanez, some of the other Yankees should be taking notes…

  301. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Let’s go Martin!!!!

  302. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    “I like the optimism but confidence in Garcia? Lets be real…”

    Here’s the beauty of posting on lohud. People don’t have to agree with each other!

    You have no confidence in Freddy. Go for it! I have confidence in Freddy.

    It appears he’s kept us in the game. I of course could be wrong since I only got here in the 10th…

    :)

  303. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Here comes a ton of curveballs in the dirt

  304. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    It will be so cool if Russell gets the walk off here!

  305. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    This A’s radio crew is so ready to be deflated… please please please.

  306. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Captain Clutch,
    Hustle aside, Cano couldn’t outrun Ibanez, or me, in a footrace. And I’m crippled. Only flaw in his game.

  307. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    :(

  308. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    This offense is pathetic

  309. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Martin can’t have 2 good games in a row of course. That would be a travesty.

  310. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    I can’t believe that Ibanez tried to come home on that. That made no sense. Nunez yes, Ibanez no.

  311. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    is this even possible anymore, statistically I mean?

  312. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Talk to the person who suggested the bottom had no hitters.

    You don’t solve the problem of the bottom of the order being a bunch of ‘auto outs’ by moving those players higher in the order. Its bad baseball.

  313. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Nice try Raul

  314. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    And why not pinch run Mesa for Ibanez. I know it would be his first big league game but I thought Mesa was a pretty good outfielder?

  315. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    Tyler

    That’s a good point.

  316. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    trisha-

    It’s not about agreeing or disagreeing. You’re entitled to your opinion on Garcia obviously. I just don’t think even Girardi agrees with it lol.

  317. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    Grandy can, Come on Curtis

  318. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    It seems like the game will end when Garcia gives up a run. The offense is so hard to watch in these spots.

  319. MG September 22nd, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Scribner made a good pitch, Martin hung in there and got the bat on the ball, Ibanez busted it down the line and ran over the catcher who held the ball.

    This is just good baseball, there is no criticism to be made there.

  320. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    “This offense is pathetic”

    This offense sucks. Horrible. Pathetic. Imagine how good they could be if they were 2nd in the AL in runs!

    Oh wait…

    But don’t let that fool ya. Any time the Yankees aren’t getting all the hits you want them to, trust that if means that the offense is pathetic and not that the opposition pitching might be decent.

    I’m with ya!

  321. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    Here comes ice cold Chavez

  322. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    “I just don’t think even Girardi agrees with it lol.”

    It may be game dependent lol.

  323. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    Walk off wild pitch here we come

  324. Tyler September 22nd, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    Come on Chavez. Get back in the groove.

  325. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    “It seems like the game will end when Garcia gives up a run. The offense is so hard to watch in these spots.”

    THAT’S what I want to hear. That almost assures the Yankees will take the game.

  326. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    “This is just good baseball, there is no criticism to be made there.”

    I agree. Even a faster runner would have been out.

    But if it was me I still would have had a faster runner on.

  327. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    “You don’t solve the problem of the bottom of the order being a bunch of ‘auto outs’ by moving those players higher in the order. Its bad baseball.”

    Stop switching your story. You said they had hitters at the bottom.

    Oh, I definitely give the A’s credit and no blame to the Yanks. I just like Mesa going down the line there. Maybe it puts a little more pressure on the A’s.

  329. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    this guy is death on Righties, but Nunie is on the case

  330. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Good at bat for Chavez he was really patient. Let’s go Jeter!!! Be patient!!!

  331. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Jeter needs to end this game now, Cal vs. U$C starts in the few minutes. :oops:

  332. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    This would be a great time for sweet Jete to get a hit!

    Clutch said Freddy will lost the game for us.

    I say Jeter will win the game for us.

    Or Freddy will win the game for us.

    GO YANKS!

  333. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    Make him throw strikes

  334. b_widmer2 September 22nd, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    Please don’t swing at the first pitch!

  335. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    Anyone who believes we’re going to win this game, raise your hand!

    Hand raised.

  336. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    They stink at situational hitting. So many of them are low average boom or bust hitters. This is why they struggle in the playoffs much of the time.

  337. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Stop switching your story. You said they had hitters at the bottom.

    Talk to the person who said they didn’t.

    Next!

    I’m not switching my story, I am addressing your faulty logic. Whether they have bad hitters or not is irrelevant when your plan for if they did would be to move one of our better hitters lower in the lineup and giving the bad hitters a better spot in the lineup. I already addressed the original complaint by pointing out who we have in the bottom of the lineup.

  338. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Ok, Arod wins it in the Lucky 13th.

  339. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

  340. lil m September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    :( Not very good

  341. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    You can put your hand down now.

  342. b_widmer2 September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Wow.

  343. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Jerkface save it. I didn’t bother reading what you wrote. I’m done with your contrarian nature – for today anyway.

  344. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    :sad:

  345. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    “You can put your hand down now.”

    That was a pre-emptory strike for this inning!

    :)

  346. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    still wondering if this RISP “thing” is even statistically possible…it’s like trying to figure out the number pie or something

  347. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    That was a terrible pitch to swing at. In on his hands and no way he could get the barrel on it. Too bad he wasn’t more patient and willing to walk. That is the one negative about Jeter in that spot he will never walk.

  348. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    Nunez at third, not good.

  349. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    If Freddy comes through this inning unscathed, the Yanks need to put it away in the bottom of the inning. If Freddy shows any sign of troublle, I hope Joe has someone in the wings.

  350. The Return of Stoneburner September 22nd, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    So, Game on Nova and Granderson so far – - – -

  351. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    I would bring in Wade. Garcia is probably done but of course Joey binder doesn’t trust Wade so he will let Garcia blow it.

  352. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    That’s what happens when you still with Freddy too long.

    Crap.

  353. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Ugh.

    Cargo, you were right about the homer.

    :(

  354. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    yet another game lost because this “great” offense can’t hit a sac fly

  355. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    I wouldn’tsay Garcia blew it, but I would say our many success stories from this game (Ichi, Lowe, Freddy) have been far outnumbered by our failures

  356. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Game over

  357. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Cespedes woke up Girardi?

  358. J2L September 22nd, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    =( No more meatballs

  359. Cashmoney September 22nd, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    mighty blast by Cespedes, possibly the most dynamic player on either team. This offense is going nowhere against good pitching…

  360. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    What a surprise. What in the world was Girardi waiting for? You have to bring in Wade to face Gomez. Leaving Garcia in just shows Girardi’s bad feel for the game. Garcia is one of his boys so he wants him to blow it instead of someone who isn’t on of the managers pets.

  361. ConcernedCitizen September 22nd, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Garcia never should have been up again. We were lucky to get out of the top of the 12th even. Ugh.

  362. sunny615 September 22nd, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Girardi rode Garcia too long. Game over.

  363. Cashmoney September 22nd, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    pitching change? what’s the point, leave Freddy in there.

    “How long before Freddy gives up a meaty one and they fall behind? I just don’t feel any confidence with him on the mound.”

    I feel nothing BUT confidence, certainly based on his last inning.

    That said, let’s score this inning and end it.
    ———————————————

    Well, I think your confidence was misplaced. I felt like Freddy being in there was just a matter of time against a team that can hit homeruns. Let’s hope for a comeback, but a night of an extra inning win by one team and a loss by another to lead to a tie at the top of the AL East would be an illustration of why the two teams collided in the standings..

  365. Cashmoney September 22nd, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Yanks are not winning squat with this offense in the PS, Book it!

  366. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    We can’t call it over ’til it’s over. Imagine if the Yanks can pull it off in the bottom of the inning!

  367. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    Raise your hand if you think Garcia just threw his last pitch as a Yankee?

    My hand is raised!!!!

  368. Ken Phelps September 22nd, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    To be fair the Yankees are awful with runners in scoring position. I believe they are 1-13? Or something… It’s the story of the seasob

  369. J2L September 22nd, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    =D More meatball

  370. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Paco – he looked good in the 12th so I figured he’d look good in the 13th. I forgot that he hasn’t pitched in a while.

    :(

    It’s starting to feel like we might be F’d.

  371. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Giro should not have even been in a position to make a second-guessable-decision. This game is on the O…again…first time in years the O has lost so many more games for us than its won…this game has been particulalry infuriating in the bottoms of innings, as much as it could have been for a game in which we actually scored 5 runs…this feels like a reverse shutout if ther eis such a thing

  372. Ken Phelps September 22nd, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    And to be fair the Yankees bullpen pitched a ton of innings without use Robertson or Soriano… Their offense did not pick them up

  373. sunny615 September 22nd, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    Boooo. Nice job Girardi. You suck.

  374. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    I blame Girardi for the loss not Garcia. Garcia is what he is and he gave them 3 shut out innings. It was obvious that he was done and was starting to get the ball up. One of Girardi’s biggest negative’s as a manager is he will only pitch his boys. Everyone saw that Garcia was losing it but Girardi refused to go with someone else that isn’t in his circle of trust. No excuse for not going to Wade after the lead off hit.

  375. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    “Raise your hand if you think Garcia just threw his last pitch as a Yankee?

    My hand is raised!!!!”

    I’ll be surprised if you don’t see him again, but maybe it will be in a blowout against Minny, or one of those things.

    The Yankees need to use all the bodies they can so that the regulars can get some rest.

  376. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Trisha is prob the only person alive who still thinks the Yanks will win this game

  377. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    I’m not switching my story, I am addressing your faulty logic

    I advise giving up trying to talk logic with Trisha.

  378. RSM September 22nd, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    This would not sting so bad if the Orioles lost every once in awhile.

  379. Ken Phelps September 22nd, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    Yes Garcia is terrible… However he gave the yanks 3 innings the offense hates driving in runs when they are in scoring position…sooner or later Garcia was going to get light up

  380. ConcernedCitizen September 22nd, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    The blown call game is looming large right now, it can’t be overstated.

  381. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    “I advise giving up trying to talk logic with Trisha.”

    What’s the matter jacksquat, you inconsolable because I tipped my cap to the team with the 2nd best ERA in the AL? I know that tends to put you into a tailspin.

    :D

  382. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    I’ll root for the unis all the way to the end, but the actual bodies filling out this year’s roster has been one of my lest favorite collections. There’s only so ,uch Giro can do if these guys can’t get the job done just a LITTLE more often at the plate…games that should typically be over for other squads past and present just end up in the dumpster

  383. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    I don’t think Garcia is in Girardi’s “circle of trust” – he used Lowe twice before Freddy – but he is probably just “trusted” more than what’s left and available.

  384. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    Baltimore finds ways to win these types of games. That’s the biggest difference between the two teams.

    Agree the offense can kill the yanks in a tight game

  386. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    Has the fat lady sung?
    Let’s go, Yanks. It’s still possible.

  387. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    “Trisha is prob the only person alive who still thinks the Yanks will win this game”

    Well let me say that last homer definitely put a little crimp in my enthusiasm. But where there’s life, there’s hope. You can never give up until the last out of the game.

    Would I lay strong odds that we win this? Not REAL strong. Do I give them 0 chance. Of course not.

  388. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    The bullpen did a great job but they can only throw scoreless baseball for so long. The offense is really poor and hasn’t situational hit all year. There is no reason to think it’s going to turn around in the play offs. They will probably struggle even more. It’s really hard to believe that they can be this bad.

  389. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    You can’t argue logic with a lawyer. Have you ever heard a lawyer admit they were wrong

  390. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    If you can’t do the basics you don’t deserve to win. Martin was the hero last night but today he was the goat. Terrible at bat, swinging at balls out of the strike zone when all he needed was a walk or a sac fly. ANOTHER tough loss for the Yankees.

  393. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    Ichi starts it off. What a pest he is.

  394. The Return of Stoneburner September 22nd, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    2nd and 3rd – 1 out – Granderson needs to drive that run in – that is the story for today – go get them tomorrow – - – -

  395. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    But wait…is there a glimmer?

  396. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Too bad they gave up those 2 extra homeruns

  397. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Guys, here’s something you need to balance out. Though hitting with RISP has been a season-long problem – it had gotten better more recently – you also need to take into account the quality of the opposition pitching. That only makes sense.

    The A’s have the 2nd best ERA in the AL. So it’s difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff when you look at something like that.

  398. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    “You can’t argue logic with a lawyer. Have you ever heard a lawyer admit they were wrong”

    Only when they are.

  399. Ken Phelps September 22nd, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    Take 2 strikes here

  400. Bobby Murcer September 22nd, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    Went to wax the car. Came back hoping for a minor miracle. Got this instead.
    It’s not Freddy’s fault. At this stage of his career he’s the type of pitcher that
    can’t go through a lineup a second time. They’ll light him up like a Christmas
    tree. So this really isn’t a surprise. He gave us 3 innings to score 1 run. Offense
    couldn’t do it. This one’s on the offense.

  401. Ken Phelps September 22nd, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Hitting with runners in scoring position has killed them this year against good pitching and bad.. Period

  402. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    And also, I did not get to watch today’s game until the 10th inning. So I cannot be held accountable for knowing everything that came before.

  403. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Figgy has a 1 HR/9 rate, now would be a good time to hit a HR.

  404. J2L September 22nd, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    No sabes?! Here we come!

  406. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Now why couldn’t they do this in the last few innings? Pressure perhaps?

  407. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    I don’t care if Grandy hits a six run walkoff HR…he’s not the kind of player I want on my team…agree or disagree, but I prefer guys with 12-15 HRs, 80 Ks, .275 hitter and 75-85 RBIs…give me a whole roster of those guys and you take the guys who hit .235 and go 6 weeks without scoring a run. I’ll bet my calculator that I’d win more games than this year’s Yanks

  408. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    “Hitting with runners in scoring position has killed them this year against good pitching and bad.. Period”

    They had been much better at it of late. Period.

  409. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Ok the last 2 seasons Neshek has a 1+ HR/9 rate, and a terrible WHIP, but he has been good for the A’s in limited work since being traded to the A’s.

  410. Ken Phelps September 22nd, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Well runners are in scoring position now… They are due to break out

  411. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Nunez has a chance and then everyone else will try to hit a homerun. Watch those 2 extra homeruns will be the difference in the game.

  412. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    OK,
    Bases loaded, no outs, new pitcher (#5 or 6 for the day), why not win this game, and send me to bed happy.

  425. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    I knew it the difference in the game is going to be Girardi not pulling Garcia after the 1st homerun. Also brining in AAA Thomas.

  426. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    The ump is going to call anything a strike because he wants to go home.

    Now if the Yanks lose this will really sting. Hopefully the bullpen can give them a shut out inning.

    You callled me out, now deal with it.

    Game isn’t over quite yet, but the Yankees got the job done.

    You’re a total wash out when it comes to having ANY faith in the Yankees and all you do is complain about them.

    Last I looked they were atop of the AL East.

    One for me for the season, none for you.

    Now put an egg in your hat and beat it.

    I bet he can get it done. Don’t forget, we hadn’t seen him in a while and so of course he was rusty. This is going to tell the story one way or the other.

  461. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    I hope that Wade pitches good not only for the team but for himself. Girardi doesn’t trust him at all but hopefully he can give them a good inning and show he can he used. If Wade can shut them out I think the Yanks will win it in the bottom of the inning.

  468. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    Atta boy, Cory.

  469. bruceb September 22nd, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    We have to, simply HAVE to win, this game…if only for Trish!!!

  470. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Kinda weird but seems like what we talk about here comes to fruition quite a bit! Did i say i love ichiro in the 2 spot?

  471. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Nothing wrong with that inning.

  472. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Time to think about giving Dickerson some of Granderson’s playing time. He is beyond lost at the plate.

  473. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    Okay, here’s a very hittable pitcher. They should get to Tyson Ross.

  474. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    kay well be late for his precious SPRINGSTEEN concert
    i love it…

  475. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    Triple – you accused me of being the only person who believed they’d win. You apparently gave them no chance.

    One for me, none for you.

    ————————————

    Actually if we are going to keep score lets give you losses for every time they went to the 9th and didn’t come back.

  476. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    along with that washed up hack Raul Ibanez who shouldn’t have been invited to camp no less given a contract

    He is hitting .222 .294 .415 .708 . They are paying 3 million for that.

  477. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Ross has a near 7 ERA. Please end game now.

  478. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    COULD WE SEE sWISHER PITCH DURING THE PENNANT CHASE?

  479. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    Now le’ts hit the only guy with an era over 3 on this team.

  480. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    Stop the incessant bickering. SMFH.

  481. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    Guys thanks for saying those nice things but I don’t deserve any more credit than you do because you are also always right there in the Yanks corner through thick and thin. I just shoot my mouth off more than you do, ha ha, but you are always in there believing. Same with Yanksfem, by the way – and others, I’m sure!

    deleonj – :) You are so sweet. Thank you.

  482. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    Oops – and I just gave you creds YF!

    :)

  483. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Let me cook supper, fercrissakes. Hang in there, trisha, I’m here all the way, but it’s you who gets the flak. I’d be happy to buy you a beer, win or lose, bat that big Italian family can’t come.

  484. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Lead off on!

  485. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    C’mon Jeter, no DP.

  486. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Melky, at least.

  487. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Trish this team has given us pessamistic type a lot of ammo, they havent exactly been the come back kids the last couple years.. And this year theyve bern the opposite, theyve found ways to lose games more oft than not.. I wanna believe but they just convince me time and time again not to.. With that said its not very fair for anybody to jump on anybody here for sake of opinion! I wish it would stop!

    The yanks coneback this game was so weird because i really felt they would.. Now we are gonna win it too !! It takes a lot for me to be optimistic .. But Ichiro has sparked something with this team lately… We beed this win bad!!! We ARE gonna get it!!!

  488. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    I just want a game thread that is about the game. Just sayin’

  489. J2L September 22nd, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    …. Taking out Eric mean we must win this inning ..

  490. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    I don’t like the bunt here. Reddick and Cespedes have great arms so you aren’t scoring on a single. I woud have let Jeter hit.

  491. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    I’m putting my hand back up.

  492. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Mesa sighting. Score him, please!

  493. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    Ichiro is gonna do it … Lets go ichiro!!!!!!! If thry dont walk him.. Ughhhhh!!

  494. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    I never like the move to pinch run a guy that can steal then bunt him to 2nd. Let him steal then bunt.

  495. deleonj September 22nd, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    i’m with captain clutch here. although we’ll see with this walk
    ealrier in the game they walked arod to get to cano and now they’re walking ichiro to get to arod

    interesting

  496. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    This is our game and OUR house! It will be OUR W!

  497. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    I meant Melky, at last. Either way, scoring the winning run would be a pretty nice Yankee memory for him. Make it happen, Arod!

  498. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Alex, da man.

  499. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    “Actually if we are going to keep score lets give you losses for every time they went to the 9th and didn’t come back.”

    Okay I’ll take that. But you have to admit that you are always negative when it comes to the Yankees.

    *********

    “He is hitting .222 .294 .415 .708 . They are paying 3 million for that.”

    You would have to be entirely disingenuous to pretend that you haven’t seen all the times he has come up huge for the Yankees. His low average isn’t terribly surprising seeing that he spent time in the field that could have anticipated. But he has had big hits, and timely hits, and he’s won games for the Yankees.

    One of the best expenditures of 3 mil the Yanks could have made, IMO

  500. deleonj September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    darn it lol he missed the bag

  501. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    How the hell do you miss a base????

  502. Against All Odds September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    what??????????????

  503. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  504. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    GRRRR

  505. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Oh what a boneheaded play!

  506. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Ca-please!

  507. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Alex !!!!!!! LOLOLOL U HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME !! He missed the base lololol ONLY THE NYY! Poor kid!

  508. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    “I’m putting my hand back up.”

    :)

    And you know that the Os are glued to the sets in the Sux dugout.

    Awwww.

  509. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    That’s what happens when you put in a rookie. Unreal…

  510. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    If Tom Coughlin was managing Mesa never gets put in again this year

  511. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Knew Alex would come through. Too bad Mesa missed 3rd.

    Time to “no sabes!?”

  512. deleonj September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    if you all think about it…thats pretty funny

  513. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Heres Cano the most unclut h of them all, all he needs is a sac fly!

  514. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    They cannot lose this now, can they?

  515. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    RISP hit fails to score our pinch runner.

    Hilarious.

    Come on Robbie Wan Canobi!

  516. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    Now Cano is swinging at anything in sight…Zero patience…

  517. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    I really do not like Cano!

  518. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    You would have to be entirely disingenuous to pretend that you haven’t seen all the times he has come up huge for the Yankees. His low average isn’t terribly surprising seeing that he spent time in the field that could have anticipated. But he has had big hits, and timely hits, and he’s won games for the Yankees.

    OK Trisha, he has hit some HRs, and got some big hits, but do you think a replacement wouldn’t also get some big hits? Its not like a replacement would hit 000. He makes a lot of outs, and doesn’t get hits very often, and is very platoon dependent. There is legit criticism against Raul as a player and a big HR doesn’t negate it.

    Baseball is about consistent and repetitious production.

    Now if he wants to hit a walk off HR in the world series and win a ring, then all can be forgiven.

  519. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    DAMMIT

  520. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    And if Raul were hitting better they might not be in the position where every game is going to matter. Their entire DH platoon fell apart.

  521. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    I can’t believe this

  522. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Terrible at bat for Cano. He is just dreadful in those spots. He looks like Vlad jsut swinging at anything in sight.

  523. deleonj September 22nd, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    crap one runs please

  524. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    That is an inexcusable play by that kid. He should not play again this year

  525. J2L September 22nd, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    =( this melkman don’t deliver

  526. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Capt Clutch, amazin that hes instantly 0-2 every time we need a clutch..

    Please dont give worthless Cano a blockbuster deal and most definatley do not give him a NO TRADE contract!

  527. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Puedes, Eduardo!

  528. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    What a weird game lol

  529. Triple Short of a Cycle September 22nd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    I can’t believe this

    ————–

    Have you not watched them this year???

  530. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Too bad they didn’t just leave Chavez in at 1st base. Unreal that Mesa can miss the bag.

  531. Villa Nova-Ya September 22nd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    this is the most bizarro game!

  532. qiantom September 22nd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Cano sucks.

  533. deleonj September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    yes that kind of game hahahaha walkoff E3!!!

  534. Jerkface September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Fitting ending, walk off error

  535. J2L September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    =D Nunez with his error

  536. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Yankees win

  537. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Making contact matters! I’ll take it!

  538. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Way to go Nunie!!!!

    Walkoff!

  539. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    HARDEE HAR HAR HAR HAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TAKE THAT O’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DA YANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And I am unabashadely crying tears of happiness. How could you love these guys more???

  540. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Wowwwwwwww weeeeeeeeee! 2 comebacks in a row!!!!!!!!!!! Love xmas gifts !!!

  541. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    YES!!!!

  542. MG September 22nd, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    this is beyond comprehension.

    but a great win nonetheless.

  543. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    Errors work, too! The Yankees win!, and i”m already untucked.

  544. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    the good news is that I just figured out pie

  545. Captain Clutch September 22nd, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    Nunez always makes contact. Too bad he can’t field because the Yanks can really use his bat in the lineup everyday. They need more guys like him in there everyday.

  546. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    He missed the base .. Kerazeee to an E3 walkoff

  547. Benny Blanco September 22nd, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I’ll take it

  548. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    6hr game!

  549. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    By the way -

    trisha – true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 5:01 pm
    Absolutely expected to come in to find out the score of the game, not to see the game still going on.

    I’m thinking these are good signs for the Yanks. Another extra inning win?

    So I called it in the 10th.

    :)

  550. Bobby Murcer September 22nd, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I would love to have seen this game (followed it here and on MLB)…
    Wow. Just wow.

  551. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I told me wife as the A’s were coming back to 5-5 that the Yankees would need 10 runs to win this game.
    But after the top 13, I can’t say trisha’s confidence was convincing.
    Wow!
    Great win!
    Suck it A’s.
    Suck it Orioles!

  552. b_widmer2 September 22nd, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    That’s one of the most memorable games I’ve ever listened to. Wow. Still in shock.

  555. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Hassey, you’re cracking me up.
    But I’m trying to figure out if you’re baking or doing math.
    pi=3.1416

  556. ZMANINSJ September 22nd, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    A bit of the old Aura and Mystique perhaps. No other explanation for this bizarre bizarre game. Just freaky.

  557. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    So happy for Nunez. And so happy for Melky Mesa. They picked him up.

    :)

    trisha,
    I’m a true believer like you. I liked last night’s game better than this one, but this one is strictly unbelievable. If we’re the only ones who believe, we may be enough to boot this team home. The Fat Lady has sung for the A’s, praise be.

  561. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    Trish ur crying for reals??? I think you should try out for ball/bat girl :-)

    two teams play 6 straight one run games in one season…a record?

  565. jacksquat September 22nd, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    Let’s not forget to give credit to Arod for what should have been the walkoff hit.

  566. yankeefeminista September 22nd, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    Nunie makes things happen. Happy to see Mesa gets off the hook. Pena will make sure that that doesn’t happen again. Great win.

  567. MG September 22nd, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    for those of you who trash Cano, without his base hit against a very tough lefty on a 3-2 pitch the Yankees don’t tie the game one inning earlier.

  568. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    “That is an inexcusable play by that kid. He should not play again this year”

    See this is the kind of thing that kills me about lohud. You may not have been one of them, but there have been a lot of poster calls for Melky Mesa. The kid messes up and all of a sudden he has no friends. Talk about jackyls.

    He’s a kid! Heck, veterans make some boneheaded plays!

  569. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Its amazing when you 1-3 hitters do their job.. Love this Batting order!

  570. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    “This belongs in Cano’s locker!”

    LOVE Robby. Never understand anyone getting down on him.

    Yeah, those are real tears. But that’s my nature. I’m one of those people who tears up easily. Tell me a sad story, I’ll tear up. Let me burst with pride for love of our Yankees, I’ll tear up.

    One of those things I wish I could give back, but I can’t.

  573. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    mick – :lol:

    That was so funny!

  574. Don September 22nd, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Give Mesa another chance. We need youth in the lineup. Fielding seams to be the Achilles Heel of Oakland.

  575. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    “grillin’ burger time with the love of my life! Much better to do with a W instead of L!”

    “A bit of the old Aura and Mystique perhaps. No other explanation for this bizarre bizarre game. Just freaky.”

    It’s sure feeling like a renewed Yankee team! And what timing.

  578. Hassey September 22nd, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    has any team ever won a game in extras after surrendering three HRs in extras?

    who cares about Mesa missing the base? doesn;t mean he is not a good athlete nor does it mean he won’t go to the HoF

  579. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Where’d all the boobirds go?

    At the end of the day, he’s the only Melky we’ve got.

  583. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    “I love ichiro”

    I think we both said that from the time they traded for him. I said I felt like we died and went to heaven. Just to have Ichiro in our lineup was like an out-of-body experience. And man alive, he has not disappointed.

  584. jmirjmir September 22nd, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    That game has got to be a Trisha special – now she’s never going to believe we’re ever going to lose. What an absurd game. I cannot believe they won that game. Cannot believe it.

  585. igotid88 September 22nd, 2012 at 7:12 pm

  586. The Return of Stoneburner September 22nd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Good for Ibanez – he catches a lot of flack – but for his one year deal – he is a nice piece for this team for this year – - – -

  587. Villa Nova-Ya September 22nd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    So incredulous about the comeback in the 13th. I had given up. They did an incredible job.

    Was sooooooo happy to see how the veterans gave Mesa assurances after the win. In the end, you can laugh about it and it becomes a story, and adds to the bizarre and unreal feeling to this game.

    When are Orioles going to lose? LOL

  588. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Gang – Yanks last 10 games – 9-1.

    UNBELIEVABLE.

    This is the kind of Yankee magic we saw so many times in years past.

    Please don’t doubt this offense. They might not be as consistent as you’d like – but they get the job done!

  589. JobaTipsHisCap September 22nd, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Yeah!!!

    This is how you payback!

    Another 1 run walk off against subhuman! In extra inning!

    Take that, sub!

  590. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Villa,
    The O’s may never lose. That’s why we have to win every game. Do that, it’s in the bag.

  591. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Villa – can you imagine how the O’s are feeling right now? They’re probably asking the same question about the Yanks!

    Heck, I’d rather have our schedule than theirs. 4 games with the Jays, they end with the Rays!

  592. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    good thing melky missed 3rd….cespedes would have gunned him

  593. Villa Nova-Ya September 22nd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    tomingeorgia

    LOL!!!!

    Well, this game has certainly made a believer (rather than a hoper) out of me!

    Have all of the last 6 games versus Oakand been decided by 1 run?

    And isn’t it serendipitous that the Yankees have won these two games in pretty much the same manner Oakland won their games at home?

  594. cofuzz September 22nd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Doesn’t matter if the Orioles never lose again as long as our Yankees keep winning.

    Ichiro stats for you: Did you know his current stat line with the Yankees is better than his career numbers?
    Coming into today’s game, he was at .327/.347/.468 for an OPS of .814
    His career numbers are .322/.365/.419 for an OPS of .784

    Can you say resurgence?
    He has mentioned the pennant race as a reason for extra focus.
    If that holds true the rest of the year, it’s gonna be fun watching him in the playoffs.

  595. Bret The Hitman September 22nd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    THE ORIOLES ARE PISSING ME OFF

  596. Villa Nova-Ya September 22nd, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    trisha –

    True about the O’s!

  597. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    speaking of burgers ….right in the middle of em when the crazy rally to tie happened….kinda like when children or dogs demand your attention when you are in the middle of something….raul put the cheese on the burger.

  598. Wang IS Taiwan September 22nd, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Wow — just woke up. I missed a game and a half! I’m watching the replay tonight.

    Just an observation but Nova seems to do well when his place in the rotation is at stake, but this year, when it looks like he’s a lock again, we get these games where he’s all over the place, giving up doubles. I sure hope it’s not an attitude problem. I mean, he’s already admitted he loses focus when there aren’t runners on base.

    I’d rather go with Phelps in the playoffs.

  599. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Bret,
    Send them a couple of case of Cheetos, then. No Cap’n crunch, tough.

  600. Wang IS Taiwan September 22nd, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    I felt bad for Melky — talk about nerves. He’s a kid. Give him a break.

  601. blake September 22nd, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Man just finished a 6 hour drive with John Sterling…what a gane!

  602. Villa Nova-Ya September 22nd, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Watching the post game.

    How about all the people who left after the top of 13th??!!!!???

  603. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    blake,
    better than an hour in your chair, I’ll bet.

  604. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    pearce looked just like tex on that diving catch…

  605. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    I will point this little gem out ….

    Duh Innings II September 22nd, 2012 at 4:22 pm
    tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    Girardi is keepin Ibanez in because the game is tied (for now). He’s hoping there is another HR in that bat today… My biggest beef with Girardi was pulling Lowe … Sox and O’s go extras.

    —————

    Yeah cuz a guy who was 2 for 45 before his solo shot is gonna hit another homerun – are you serious?

    LOL @ you wanting the worst defensive outfielder in the field.

    Ibanez served his purpose (then go-ahead run), time for him to be replaced in the field.

  606. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    “Watching the post game.

    How about all the people who left after the top of 13th??!!!!???”

    Wow what they missed!

  607. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    raul taking that extra base then trying to bowl over the catcher was awe inspiring….could use more of that.

  608. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    In years past, YES rewind was available for all YES customers. They stopped that several years ago. How I wish I could watch this whole game! I saw from the 10th on but still you don’t get the real flavor of the game that way. Plus I would LOVE to watch the bottom of the 13th again, just staring at the television with no other distractions.

    Is there any way to save the game from MLB.com to my hard drive and then somehow get it to my television? I’m not a real tecchie, as you can tell!

  609. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    mick – seriously, raul is awe inspiring!

  610. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    ” Man just finished a 6 hour drive with John Sterling…”

    You must be wondering what happened.

  611. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    If anyone can either tape or DVR the rewind of this game, and then save it to a DVD for me, I will be happy to pay you for materials and labor.

  612. tucker September 22nd, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    With a streaky hitter like Ibanez, you stick with him when he starts to warm up. And it looks like he is heating up at the right time.

    I would also like to see CorynWade get more innings down the stretch to see if he can be helpful at all …

  613. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    trish. they are doing the replay right now on YES

  614. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Mr. mick,
    Raul is a player, always has been. I don’t care if he’s 40, he still plays the game as if he were 30. Problem is, he’s 40. Like Jones, he’s about done, but he didn’t look like it today. Praise the Lord!

  615. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    this one will be a YES instant classic next week

  616. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Mr Tom…..when i went to baltimore last sunday grandy did the same thing coming off the bench in a terrible slump and took over the game

  617. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    And the fact that we got Ichiro for so cheap! How do you not resign him eith our OF needs and the price of the other FA.. Im already drooling over Hamilton if hes willing to go at it with something reasonable im all in.. But a 8 year 20+ W/ntc

    , next year our OF should be .. Gardner LF, CF Grandy, Ichiro RF .. Id prefer ichiro over Grandy or Swisher in heartbeat! I think it will come down to contracts dependent upon the better bargain for Hal’s spreadsheet!

    Just cracked up thinking about “spreadsheets and binders” lol,

  618. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    mick – they don’t show the rewinds to out of market viewers anymore!

    :(

  619. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    going by today’s game here is my PS roster

    the 8 usual starters + stewart,nunez,nix, chavez, ibanez and gardner(if healthy)/dickerson

    cc kuroda andy hughes

    joloroso, eppada, phelps

    would trust lowe but it would cost eppley

  620. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    blessing in disguise on the melky mishap
    cespedes threw a bullet from shallow cf

  621. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    Missed most of the game….Got back home and I find out that I missed probably the game of the season! Grrrrrrr!! What a roller coaster game it must have been by reading the the thread. Winning run by an error! Down 9-5 and we manage to tie the game! Then Mesa misses a base, we don’t score, but still managed to win?!

    I don’t want to get to far ahead, but this could be the game that gives us the division.

  622. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Trisha, the easiest is if you have a 3rd party device . We watch mlb.tv from our xbox and playstations, you can purchase a single game i think if not a month subscript is so worth it. If you dont have a xbox some internet ready Tv’s have it built in i kbow panasonic does .. But your best bet is pluggin your computer into TV if you have the proper cables.. Of course for 100.00 you can by the new tiny apple TV .. Thing is super cool , definitely worth every penny!

  623. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    You can watch MLB.tv from an Xbox? How?

  624. igotid88 September 22nd, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    2 Melky’s had bad moments in the field their first days. Melky C misplayed a ball vs Boston. And Melky M. overran a base. I think that was MM’s first game.

  625. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    do you who ralph kramden is trish?

  626. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Melky C misplayed a ball vs Boston.
    ==================
    was at that game at YS-his 1st

  627. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Luis

    You have to have the X-Box connected to the internet. Buy a membership to X-Box live, download the MLB app and you done.

  628. jackamir September 22nd, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    Trisha— The A’s repeat the game tonight on Direct tv–698

  629. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    What is wrong with Nova?
    He’s enigmatic to say the least.
    He might have pitched himself off the PS roster.
    Well, 2 more starts in his audition…

  630. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    jackamir – thank you so much!!! It’s the A’s version, but I’ll still get to watch it!

  631. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    watch the 13th inning…i hear it was exciting…

  632. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    mick – :lol:

  633. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    I get mlb.tv on my toaster. I’m not complaining.

  634. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    “And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.”

    Joe Girardi, trisha, and me.

  635. blake September 22nd, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    “You must be wondering what happened.”

    Nah I heard…..Yankees win……thhhbbbbaaaaaa Yankees WIN! So that told me the bottom line :)

    Kudos to Lowe who really held the As down….and Kudos to Raul and the offense for not giving up there when inevitably the As got to Freddy.

    Big win….big confidence boosting win.

  636. jmv September 22nd, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    Hi, there!

    Didn’t catch the game, but almost had a heart attack reading the thread! I truly desire the O’s have watched the last inning, LOL

  637. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Tar,

    You made my day! I have all of that, didn’t know they had a MLB application. I rather see it through that than see it in my computer.

  638. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    Tar,

    Thank you by the way ;)

  639. Tar September 22nd, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    Glad to hear it luis.

    Hey Nick did UNC make you happy today? They really should have scored probably 14 more points, but had a bunch of dropped passes.

  640. tomingeorgia September 22nd, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    luis,
    Who are you going to crowd off the playstation?

  641. jmv September 22nd, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Hi Luis!

    Sorry to ask, but what kind of internet connection do you have? Mine is painfully slow

  642. mick September 22nd, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    trish,nothing on ralph kramden?

  643. ghastly September 22nd, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    Nick in SF gets todays funniest comment inre Sterling….lol

  644. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Tom,

    If I can, my two daughters will be the victims! ;) I know easier to say than done.

    Jmv,

    I have ABA from cantv the highest speed available 100 mps if I am not mistaken. But I think the key is the router you have. My kids play on line all the time, they get beat by players from other countries with faster internet, but they play fine. So I guess I can watch the game in there. Heck I watch most of the games in my computer. My office does have real fast service since I get from Spain.

  645. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Jmv,

    The part I dread the most is downloading the app, that might a while though.

  646. jmv September 22nd, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Thanks, Luis!

    I had lost faith in ABA (a lot of episodes of lost connection), but maybe it’s time to give it a shot… Hey, maybe it will get faster after 7-O!, LOL

  647. Nick in SF September 22nd, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Tar, I could have used a higher point total, but otherwise I’m happy. I might not be betting UNC again in the near future, however.

  648. jmv September 22nd, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Luis, I really miss Spain’s internet speed…

  649. jmv September 22nd, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Jmv,

    Hay un camino! ;)

    Seriously though, I don’t think the service is going to get better any time soon. They would have to privatize or open the competition. The latter might happen sooner.

  652. NYY_Girl_Penny September 22nd, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Mlb.tv is a billion x better then extra innings.. Its even cheaper with more options! I’ll always get mlb.tv bye bye cable extra innings!

  653. luis September 22nd, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Jmv,

    I took the servers out of the country for security reasons and internet speed. Unfortunately is to costly to do it for your home.

    Usually after 8 the speed is ok. Got to go, have a good one!

  654. blake September 22nd, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    I tell ya….I wouldn’t mind watching THIS Ichiro again next year …..boy hes fun to watch when hes going like this.

  655. Yankee Trader September 22nd, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Blake-

    I want to see more Ichiro and more Nunez.

    Cano grounded to the pitcher, who forced Mesa at home, but Nunez then squibbed a ball to first that was misplayed by Moss.

    “I thought he was going to have trouble because the ball had a lot of spin,” Nunez said. “That’s why I ran hard.”

    If that had been-fill in the blank/blanks, the game might still be going on. Team needs their speed and hustle in the lineup if they want to win the division.

  656. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 22nd, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    mick – to the moon, Alice!!!

    :)

  657. rb from LI September 22nd, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    Love watching Ichiro. I don’t like looking too far ahead, but assuming Gardner is back next year, can the team really sign Ichiro for the other corner? I’m not sure the Yankees would go that way. They need to get younger.
