Yankees rally to keep pace

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 30, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

This one looked bad. Phil Hughes was struggling, the Yankees were down by four and the out-of-town scoreboard showed a big Orioles lead. The Yankees were as close as they’ve come to losing their grip on first place in the American League East, but they put together a late comeback that carried them to a huge 9-6 win in their series finale against Toronto. A three-run seventh inning tied the game, and a two-run eighth put the Yankees in front. Eduardo Nunez had the go-ahead sac fly, and Derek Jeter’s third hit was a cushion-building RBI single (with Brett Gardner running on the play). Curtis Granderson’s ninth-inning single tacked on. Hughes allowed five runs through 4.2 innings, but Derek Lowe, Boone Logan and Dave Robertson delivered 3.1 hitless innings of relief before Rafael Soriano pitched into and out of trouble to seal it.

    exhale!!!

  2. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    My luck, back in time to say,congrats – you get the W, I get the experience.

  3. jacksquat September 30th, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Some nice things to see in this game. Good way to go into the Boston series.

  4. NYY fan in NH September 30th, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Phew is all I got to say. Should it be this hard to scrap wins with this team?

  5. G. Love September 30th, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    I need a drink.

  6. jackamir September 30th, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Big lift and Teix tomorrow… Lets put the Dead Sox away!!!

  7. LGY September 30th, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Time to sweep the s/a Red Sox

  8. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    jmills – hi!

    :)

    “I need a drink.”

    You also need to learn how not to let things get to you so much – which isn’t to say that you didn’t earn a drink for today’s game. I didn’t get to see it until the end.

    :)

  9. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    G.Love, I think everyone on the site could use one :)

  10. Tabbert September 30th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    What a epic comeback today.

    Avoiding this wild card game is a must. Right now it looks like the A’s will at worst be trailing the rangers by 2 games going into their final series. The A’s just have to win the series and they will tie the rangers for the WEST! I want no part of the rangers in a one game elimination.

    We just gotta hope the Rays give all their effort these final 3 games. I think their arms can shut down this orioles team. But… if they have nothing to play for, i don’t know how much rays magic we will see.

  11. MG September 30th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    That is officially a great win for the Yankees, they didn’t quit…

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    YAHOO!!!!!

    I am SOOOO happy that the O’s now have to walk into the Rays den. KaBOOM! The Rays are still fighting for their playoff lives. They will NOT roll over for the Rays. Enjoy your stay, Buck.

  13. LGY September 30th, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Yankees (and Orioles) tied with the Rangers if the Angels can win tonight.

  14. ZMANINSJ September 30th, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    A very tough one to watch, for sure

  15. jackamir September 30th, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    First place is still ours….Unsung hero is Derek Lowe…

  16. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Hi Trish!, gonna’ be a fun week!!!

  17. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    MG – play some Springsteen and remind me how stupid I was!

  18. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    “First place is still ours….Unsung hero is Derek Lowe…”

    Definitely need him in the pen in the post. Girardi has some tough choices.

  19. Against All Odds September 30th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    He stepped up big today *claps*

  20. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    No mistake though, this was a big win…

    I hope this day in day out, do or die attitude works in our favor man.. I really do.

  21. tucker September 30th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Nice character win … Anything less than a sweep of the Sox is unacceptable. Nova makes me nervous.

  22. Yankees_Fan September 30th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Their backs against the wall with thevO’s grabbing a 5-1 lead and they trailing 4-1 in a must win game, it was really refreshing how they overcame their oftensive deficiencies and pulled out a HUGE win.

  23. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Was this Hughes’ last start of the regular season?

  24. Benny Blanco September 30th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Trout has 30hrs?? He’s a monster!!

  25. austinmac September 30th, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    That was a great comeback. On to Boston. The team must assume Baltimore will sweep. Win them all.

  26. Tabbert September 30th, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    Only bad thing is that the rays will be throwing out their worst pitcher tomorrow. Maybe they will bump someone up. They will play before oakland tomorrow… so they know that they will HAVE to win to stay alive. Cant see alex cobb getting that start in a must win game for the rays.

  27. tomingeorgia September 30th, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    trish,
    Shame was all gloom and doom this PM, and I had to try to buck her up. As I said then, the pall of defeat hanging over this place is smothering. Nobody is rooting, just expecting defeat at every turn, and blaming everybody in the Yankees organization for it, whether it happens or not.

    Off to Boston, where we sweep!

  28. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Mac-

    The O’s are not gonna sweep TB at home.

  29. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    Tom-

    Boston to us.

    ;)

  30. Against All Odds September 30th, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    Benny Blanco September 30th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Trout has 30hrs?? He’s a monster!!

    ———————

    Him and Harper will dominate the game for yrs

  31. LGY September 30th, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    Hughes finishes the season with an ERA+ below 100. Disappointing.

  32. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    Tab – you know Maddon will have tight control on that game. If Cobb starts, that pen will be active as soon as there’s the slightest sign of trouble.

    Nice that the Sux are coming to OUR house to end out the season.

    *********

    Anyone who feels they can be objective – did Girardi manage the game well today?

  33. Nick in SF September 30th, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    It’s quite possible that Thursday could bring divisional playoff games between the Yanks/O’s and the Rangers/A’s… fighting to get Friday off and to avoid the Wild Cards. That’s some wild, wacky stuff.

  34. tomingeorgia September 30th, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    About needing a drink, I generally have one before game time, keeps the spirits up when things look down, and keeps the hopes up. Usually works, too!

  35. Nick in SF September 30th, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    tomingeorgia, what the heck, are you testifying before the House Un-Yankeelike Activities Committee on who was too gloomy during the game?????

  36. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    tom – as soon as I saw there were over 500 posts on the game thread, I didn’t need to think beyond the obvious. You can write up the blueprint on this forum. 500 posts meant that the Yankees were in big trouble at one point and every critic in the world showed up to kick sand and complain. And I haven’t read the game thread but that is basically etched in stone when the Yanks get in trouble!

    :)

  37. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Very, very short leash for Nova.

    I would have inserted Phelps instead.

    That said, I hope Ivan turns back into Supernova.

    He will if he can find command of his FB again.

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    I imagine the game thread was a lonely place for someone like tom. I’m sure you earned a drink tom!

  39. Bobby Murcer September 30th, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Any guesses/wisdom on which wild card games will be at which times? I have tickets
    for Atlanta-probably Cards and I would love the game to be at 8 PM rather than
    4 PM…

  40. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    SP, SP, SP, SP, SP!

    If your starting pitching does its job, you don’t have to worry about coming back big.

    And when your SP falls apart, the other pitcher can then ease up and pitch his game, whatever that might be.

  41. JobaTipsHisCap September 30th, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    I think the div is gone since bal holds the tiebreaker and yanks don’t have the ability to sweep sux.

  42. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Explain this to me for the 100th time. Why does Baltimore hold the tiebreaker? Yesterday someone said there’d be a playoff game if the teams were tied!

  43. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    ” Lonely place ” hey, I was here displaying myself.( Given, from the other side :) )

  44. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Yanks definitely have the ability to sweep the Sux – and the talent.

    ***********

    Maybe now’s a good time for me to trot out the prediction chart – if I can find it!

  45. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    jmills – thank God tom had you here for company!

  46. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Trisha-

    More wins within the division.

    That leads to the game being played at the Yards if it were to happen.

  47. Bobby Murcer September 30th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    If teams are tied and both would be a wildcard there will be a playoff game on
    Thursday. On the second tiebreaker (games within the division), Baltimore would
    be home team.

  48. Barry September 30th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Trisha,

    The answer is yes. A good team and a struggling manager came together. And no win is hard to watch. In fact, no baseball game is hard to watch.

  49. MG September 30th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    ————-
    Trisha, you really should shut up already, your act has worn itself out from over use.

    The Yankees played a horrible game yesterday and were comatose for 5 innings today.

    Only one person (Stoneburner) claimed the game or season was over and probably one troll came in and said he predicted a collapse in April.

    The rest of us, at different levels, criticized the team (at least certain players) and by this time of the season that is somewhat deserving.

    They rebounded and pulled out a great win and nearly everyone who posted on the blog during the game made mention of it.

    I’m waiting for the waiters and tips line, I’m sure there are at least 100 uses of it coming this week.

  50. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    I feel like it’s not fair to cast me in the doom and gloom crowd, especially when there are like 10 personalities on here that are just one person throwing that down nonstop.. I’m a real fan, and want them to win.. but I do seriously believe in jinxes and not getting to high or too low.. I’m sorry I find the fact that we’re tied with the BALTIMORE ORIOLES at this stage in the season to be a source of serious embarrassment lol, but I’m not gonna cut it out, cause it’s grossing me out on the daily.

  51. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    I do not believe the O’s will win out against the Rays.

    Question is, will we win out against the Sux ?

  52. tomingeorgia September 30th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Nick,
    The HUYAC is watching, starting when the Yanks go down by a run. As trisha said, 500+ posts in that game thread, 98% negative about some aspect of the Yankees. I watched the game, rooted, and loved the outcome. When we win #28, none of those posters will admit they said those things, but WE know who they are.

  53. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Thanks guys.

    If Yankees don’t win the division with the final three games, shame on them. We defiinitely have the better schedule.

    GO RAYS! AND REMEMBER WHAT WE DID FOR YOU LAST SEASON!

  54. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Trish, thanks, but careful what you wish for! :)

  55. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    MG – I’m not getting into a cat fight with you. But thanks for playing!

  56. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    I come on here for the last three days and see people rooting for the Sox.. I’m sort of a broken woman right now lol….

  57. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    “Question is, will we win out against the Sux ?”

    MTU – we should.We certainly have the ability. So therefore, we better!

    :)

  58. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Shame-

    When they were playing the O’s it was “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”.

    Don’t worry. The rooting was short-lived.

    They can go back to sucking again now that they are playing us.

    ;)

  59. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    And MG – do us both a favor. Don’t read my posts. I don’t need you haunting me for the rest of the season and postseason. I don’t know what makes you feel so supreme, maybe Prufrock’s not here anymore so you can be king. I don’t bother you, don’t bother me.

  60. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Trisha-

    But will we ?

    Anyone have a crystal ball ?

    :)

  61. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Shame, it was so easy I can’t even begin to tell you! They’re in last place and we needed them to win. Surefire combination!

    :)

  62. Bobby Murcer September 30th, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Whether we win #28 or not, this team has been the most frustrating Yankee
    team I’ve ever followed, and I’ve been a fan since ’69. It would be a wonderful
    surprise, but it wouldn’t cancel the issues this team has.

    A team doesn’t have to win the WS for a fan to enjoy it. I really loved the 70
    team, and the 74 team, and some of the mid-80s teams and the 2001 team,
    and none of them won the WS. I even found the 2008 team more palatable
    than this one.

  63. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    I, like MG, am also weary of being lumped in with a bunch of legit trolls… but I feel like I’m kinda used to it by now. When I worked for a 2nd grade class we used to tell the kids that would tattle on one another, ‘you do you.’ I still do Shame. *shrugs*

    September 30, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    Hughes finishes the season with an ERA+ below 100. Disappointing.
    ———–

    What would it have been if those 3 inherited runners didn’t score? Considering he threw 110+ innings more and how he started the year. I’d say it’s better than expected.

  65. Nick in SF September 30th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    I am going to fight HUYAC with every fiber of my being, although I have occasionally slipped information to it in the past. Wait, did I just think that or type it?

    On another note, how long has Guy Frieri been closing games for the Angels?

  66. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    MTU, I’d feel better if I found my missing gold earring. But I believe we will do it.

    :)

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

    I am going to find our prediction chart and post it. BRB. I know for sure I didn’t win. :(

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

    Another incentive for us to sweep the Sux. nick in SF will owe me twice the chocolate!

  67. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Shame-

    You are one of my favorite people.

    So you go right on being you.

    Cause I dig it.

    :)

  68. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    trisha – I prefer to be the master of my fate and all that.. that’s all. I’m very put off by picking/rooting for opponents. I feel like its asking for trouble somehow.. like, for example, whenever I root for the Sox they lose. It’s some cosmic nonsense.

  69. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    nick – I think just this season. At most a little of last season?

  70. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Thanks MTU ;)

    BTW, I’ve been meaning to ask, has Doreen uncovered any news on GB??

  71. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Can I make an as# of myself and make everyone feel better? :)

    Yankees win!,Yankees win!……..

  72. tomingeorgia September 30th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    MTU,
    With just a few games remaining, my predictive powers are as good as anybody’s. Yankees win! The Yankees win!

  73. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Shame – while I too would prefer to be master of our fate, when we had already lost yesterday I wasn’t too proud to beg! I actually considered it more rooting against the O’s than rooting FOR the Sux. Heck I would have rooted for satan yesterday if he was playing the O’s!

    :D

  74. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Shame-

    You’re welcome.

    None that I’m aware of.

  75. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    What if the Yankees and Orioles both win out and finish ahead of th Rangers for best record…..yet have to play a tie breaker game and one go to the WC

  76. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Thanks Tom.

    It kinda pisses me off that we have blown a 10 game cushion but oh well.

  77. Tabbert September 30th, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    What we really need to happen:

    The Rays go into tomorrow knowing they have to win: They Win.

    The A’s Lose game 1 of their series vs the Rangers.. Thus giving The rays another must win gm.

    The Rays go into Tuesday knowing they have to win: They win

    Yankees Win the East. A’s win the west. Orioles have to play the Rangers in a 1 game playoff.

  78. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Well, that’s sort of my point though, trisha, rooting for the Sox and being a bit down on the team (as you were last night) is thrown into the same category as trolling on here. Myself, MG, austinmac, blake, LGY, JF, comet, and several others have been posting here for a long time and I feel like are somewhat entitled to having an in-the-moment opinion of our play and have it be understood that it is in the context of a particular moment.

  79. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Blake, man, great insight!

  80. MG September 30th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:07 pm
    I, like MG, am also weary of being lumped in with a bunch of legit trolls… but I feel like I’m kinda used to it by now. When I worked for a 2nd grade class we used to tell the kids that would tattle on one another, ‘you do you.’ I still do Shame. *shrugs*
    ——————————
    I’m in complete agreement with you, Shame.

    It’s one thing to be negative all season about every game, every AB, every pitch.

    It’s another thing to feel like certain players shouldn’t be in the game or that the manager is making awful decisions on a regular basis.

    Logan did a good job today but why he was in the game instead of Rapada to pitch to Rasmus made no sense whatsoever, just as having Andruw Jones anywhere near a bat makes no sense.

    At least the binder told Girardi that Ibanez can hit Oliver, leaving Raul in there probably was the difference in the game.

    3 more games, hopefully 3 wins, CC on the mound, Teix back in the lineup, and a Rays team that has a chance.

    It would have been nice if they won either the middle game against the Twins or yesterday but we have to take what we can get, right?

    I hope the Giants-Eagles game isn’t a nailbiter, I don’t think I can handle another one today :)

  81. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Blake-

    I believe the loser is eliminated.

    period.

    Could be wrong.

  82. Bobby Murcer September 30th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    What if the Yankees and Orioles both win out and finish ahead of th Rangers for best record…..yet have to play a tie breaker game and one go to the WC

    —————————————————-

    That’s the breaks. The Yanks and Orioles will both have a better record than Detroit,
    but one of the former will still have to play a WC game…

  83. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    MTU – Sorry to hear that.. a real shame. GB and I butted heads at times but the Grumpier Old Men faction of this board is always a good time and I like ‘em a lot.

  84. Tabbert September 30th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Actually… we need the A’s to lose today. That would REALLY help the rays.

  85. austinmac September 30th, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    I have no idea what will happen in the Rays-O’s series, but the team must think sweep.

  86. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Okay first our prediction chart in descending order. Then in the next post I will post the Sux chart in descending order. Remember that we used the Sux chart as the potential tiebreaker in case more than one person got the Ys number right.

    In the Ys chart, everyone who predicted between 92 and 95 wins is still in the running.

  87. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Shame-

    GB never took himself or anyone else too seriously.

    In that sense we got along real well.

    I wish he were still here too.

  88. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    I would love to be in the position to conflict avec other Jays fans. Problem is,….they don’t know who Thurman is. :(

    Give me a fast car!

  89. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Seattle tied the game.

    GO M’S!!!

  90. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    MG – I agree. Listen, I’ve been posting on here for several years and I haven’t been all that critical of Girardi in past seasons as I have in this one. I also have been a defender of both he and Cash in the past on many occasions, including within this season, and don’t get on board with a lot of the assumed ideas about their personalities and/or what drives their decisions. But I just think this team has flaws and I’d love to be wrong but I don’t think this is a WS contending club. Again, these are words I’d love to have to eat in a few weeks, so I hope I have to. But they’ve been very inconsistent all year on both sides of the ball.

  91. Tabbert September 30th, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    If The A’s lose today… that would be huge. That means the Rays elimination number will be 2 with 3 to play instead of 1. Oh and if the A’s lose the series to the rangers… the rays would then have a chance to tie the A’s! Wow… A bunch of crazy stuff can still happen.

  92. Nick in SF September 30th, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    I would gladly pay double chocolate to sweep the Sox and win the division.

    The Sox winning enough games to win that bet for me would be the very definition of bittersweet.

  93. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Anyone who guessed 69-72 wins is still in the running in the Sux chart.

    They are 1-9 in their last 10 games. OUCH!

  94. G. Love September 30th, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Something tells me I don’t think the Yankees are living up to my 104 win prediction unless that includes the post season which would make me perhaps the greatest psychic talent of our time.

  95. Tabbert September 30th, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    I wonder how the Orioles would have played the last month if they lost a player like Tex.

  96. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    Shame-

    Regardless of what happens with this year’s Yankees I still want to see changes made in the OS.

    I’ve felt that way for quite some time.

    But hey, I’m part of Team Greedy.

  97. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    “I would gladly pay double chocolate to sweep the Sox and win the division. ”

    I hear you. There was no question that I was willing to give up half the chocolate if it meant we woud beat the Jays and the Sux would beat the O’s.

  98. tomingeorgia September 30th, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    Shame,
    Is it not possible to feel more positive than you and the other folks you listed, and be considered a pollyanna? You’re usually much more hopeful than you’ve been lately. None of you are trolls. and if you thought that of me, I apologize. I think, despite late season disappointments, that were going to do all right from here on. Today’s win was marvelous. Tomorrow, the Sox, what could be better?

  99. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Lol, Team Greedy wants ALL the changes!!

  100. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    If GGBG and Pettitte had stayed healthy all season, and Girardi hadn’t mismanaged a bunch of games who knows ?

    ;)

  101. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    Tha the breaks. The Yanks and Orioles will both have a better record than Detroit, but one of the former will still have to play a WC game…”

    Thats dumb though

  102. MG September 30th, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:19 pm
    MG – I agree. Listen, I’ve been posting on here for several years and I haven’t been all that critical of Girardi in past seasons as I have in this one. I also have been a defender of both he and Cash in the past on many occasions, including within this season, and don’t get on board with a lot of the assumed ideas about their personalities and/or what drives their decisions.
    ————————————–
    Shame, I am never critical of Yankees players, I think as a whole they play hard all the time and do their best.

    I’ve never been a Girardi fan and have no opinion of Cashman but, outside of his insistence on pitching Burnett in rotation when he couldn’t get through 3 or 4 innings and him leaving Burnett in to face Molina in the 2010 ALCS I’ve stayed away from being critical of him.

    Over the past few weeks, though, some of his decisions are so bad they are indefensible, a Little League coach could do better.

    For me there were three key ABs in a row today-the Martin bunt (perfect), Nunez taking the outside fastball the other way and getting the SacFly, and Jeter fighting off a tough pitch and fisting it to right field-throw in Robby’s semi-bunt down the 3rd base line and it gives you reason to believe the Yankees can play some smart baseball from here on in and maybe win a championship.

  103. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    “Thats dumb though”

    So’s the whole new playoff system IMO.

  104. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

  105. Yankee Trader September 30th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Good afternoon.

    It certainly seemed that Girardi was playing to keep his job today. No Smiley Jones to pinch hit for Ibanez.

    Did Cano bunt against the shift on his own or did Girardi call for it?

    MTU- I see you were asking abot GB7- News?

  106. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    tom – No doubt, but I really try to go out of my way to not generalize that ‘cheer leader’ fan attitude.. if I fail to do so regularly, please let me know! It’s easy to slip into hyperbole. I just feel like a fair number of the complaints posted lately are similar to those worries posted in ST…. and many have been proven valid. I’d really like to see this team as a WS contender, but we’ve been all over the place with consistency. I hope we hit a hot streak and use this do-or-die stuff to our advantage.

  107. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    G Love – I was just going to say the same thing. I did you one better on the Ys chart! Who knew that we’d be without Mariano, Gardner, and that DRob, Arod, Swish, Tex, CC, Andy, Nova, among others, would be down during the season? If we knew that, I betcha we might not have bet so high!

  108. G. Love September 30th, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    MG – Great post. We’ve been waiting for these guys to treat a game like this for most of this season. Notice Swisher, Arod, Tex, etc. had nothing to do with the team playing good fundamental ball that inning. The guys who do the little things right need more at bats.

  109. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    MTU,

    If what I said happened…..then the Yanks would play a game in Baltimore to determine who was the division winner and who was a WC team…..meanijg oke of the teams that had the best record in the league woukd be forced to play a one game play in round……which is kinda crazy and really unfair.

  110. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    YT-

    Actually Shame asked me.

    I have heard zero, zippo, nada.

    Sorry.

  111. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Also man oh man did we all call the Sux wrong. Looks like I might be distributing a bit of chocolate this seaason! Though I think that everyone would agree that we could always go with the person who guessed closest on the Sux chart if that person is also in a tie on the Ys chart. But who knows if there’s any overlap? I really haven’t looked.

  112. Shame Spencer September 30th, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    MG – He just hasn’t been doing his usual binder-driven choices lately.. and for once we need him to lol!!

    I dunno, I just don’t like the lax attitude. And we have seen this before in past years.. so it’s hard to shake.

    Oh well.. I’m heading out for a bit. Will try to get back to people later.

  113. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Blake, again, great insight!- the compromise of the whole WC thing – paradox as all of us are.

  114. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Yanks showed today the difference between them and the chicken and beer Red Sox……..

  115. G. Love September 30th, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    trisha – I made that prediction when we thought we traded for a healthy Pineda too. I thought our rotation would dominate from wire to wire because of talent and depth.

  116. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Blake-

    Like I said I didn’t like it from the get go.

    I know you did.

    I didn’t want Baseball to resemble Football all the more.

    It’s baseball.

    ——————————
    Arod has been invisible in September and, judging by his comments yesterday about walks being a positive development, is out of touch with reality, but Swish has been terrific, I think he has 14 RBIs in the last 12 games before today and is hitting over .300 over that time.

    Why does he get so much grief from Yankees fans?

  118. Yankee Trader September 30th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Should be a good matchup Rays vs Orioles with Maddon and Showalter matching wits and both using the shift more than any other teams. Plus they have the two best closers in the AL.

    Still a chance for the Yankees or O’s to finish as the top seed.

  119. G. Love September 30th, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    I absolutely think Cano bunted on his own. I do not think Girardi has the stones to tell these guys to bunt against the shift and that has been part of the problem. Giving up free baserunners in pursuit of HR’s is what kills this team.

  120. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    My prediction of a 100+ wins was based on the fact that last year’s tema won 97 and i thought this one would be signioficantly better.

    No one foresaw all the injuries.

    That put a big Kibosh on it.

    :(

  121. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    Jmills,

    I like the 2nd WC but if they are gonna keep it as one game then they really need to consider realignment and balancing the schedule…..the current system rewards mediocrity too often and penalizes thr best teams too often

  122. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:33 pm

  123. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    I like that division neans something again…..but I dont like that soke of the division winners get free passes with worse records….

  124. LGY September 30th, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    What would it have been if those 3 inherited runners didn’t score? Considering he threw 110+ innings more and how he started the year. I’d say it’s better than expected.

    ———

    102.

    Can’t just write off those runs though. They are part of the game and I’m sure he benefited from the bullpen at other points this season.

  125. G. Love September 30th, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    MG,

    Swisher gets grief because he cannot hit a breaking pitch and K’s and does nothing to move runners or be productive when a guy equipped with anything other than a straight fastball faces him.

    He’s the easiest guy on the Yankees to get out if you can throw more than 1 pitch.

  126. MG September 30th, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    G. Love September 30th, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    ————–
    he didn’t really bunt, he just kind of slapped it on the ground towards 3rd base like he was playing pepper.

    that’s what I don’t understand about some of the Yankees hitters who say they don’t want to change their swings.

    Just do what Robby did 15 times a year to get a basehit and raise your batting average 20 points plus help the team and you won’t affect your swing dynamics at all.

  127. Nick in SF September 30th, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    I made my prediction based on Cervelli being the backup catcher. I figured he was worth about 8 wins or so. Maybe I was right. :oops:

  128. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    I like the progress Hughes has made this year and think it was a good year for him.overall but I didnt like the way he pitched today……hes falling in love with that slider too much…..its a good pitch but only if he uses it off his fastball…..today he looked afriad to establish his heater and he cant pitch like that……

  129. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Blake, I say get rid of that inter league crap, back to one winner takes all in both National and American!….am I going too far? :) – being maybe facetious, but I agree with you, present circumstances hold a unique stench.

    well, he’s batting 300/.401/.600/1.001 with RISP this year with 24 HR and 92
    RBIs, how much more can you ask from a guy who the Yankees acquired for Wilson Betemit?

  131. Nick in SF September 30th, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    If it comes to a playoff in Camden on Thursday, we need a LoHud field trip down there.

  132. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    “Well, that’s sort of my point though, trisha, rooting for the Sox and being a bit down on the team (as you were last night) is thrown into the same category as trolling on here. Myself, MG, austinmac, blake, LGY, JF, comet, and several others have been posting here for a long time and I feel like are somewhat entitled to having an in-the-moment opinion of our play and have it be understood that it is in the context of a particular moment.”

    Shame, who was talking about any of you? I think tom and I both know we were referring to the people who ONLY show up to b*tch.

    Rooting for the Sux was not only acceptable it was intelligent. I put that in the same category of those who actually flipped out last season when some of us rooted against the Yankees and were rooting for the Rays to win so that the Sux wouldn’t make the postseasobn. The Yankees were already in! I remember that some posters took that as heresy and went on about it for days.

    I don’t know anyone except for one person who suggested that rooting for the Sux was wrong. (not saying you – you just said you couldn’t do it.)

    And I had several less-than-great days with respect to feeling things about the Yankees, but I also let people know that I was feeling lousy and had absolutely no energy for anything.

    ***********

    I don’t tell ANYONE they have to cheerlead here. I am against those who do NOTHING but trash the Ys and b*tch about them. I resent anyone who suggests that my cheerleading is “mindless loyalty”. I’ve been accused of that any number of times. Well check it out. I’m behind the team win or lose. That’s total loyalty, not mindless loyalty. And I am NOT going to apologize for not questioning or complaining or demanding.

  133. LGY September 30th, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Apparently Tex only gets paid for HRs and RBIs.

  134. Yankee Trader September 30th, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    MG and G. Love-

    I’m expecting to see the Red Sox using the shift, especially now with Tex in the lineup batting from the left side.

    In fact teams with pitchers able to force, by locating pitches, strict pull hitters to hit into the shift, will be the way to beat the Yankees hitting from the left side-Ibanez, Granderson, Tex and even Swisher.

  135. blake September 30th, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    It all gets down to the fine art of “situational hitting”.

    We need more Ichiro’s and Matsui’s.

    Too bad they are 2 of the greatest Japanese players ever.

    Won’t be easy to find more like them.

  143. austinmac September 30th, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    Jmills,

    Too many teams now. Almost double the number of when it was winner take all. It would never happen anyway due to money.

  144. austinmac September 30th, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    MTU,

    Matsuri and Ichiro have been great. It seems a large drop off to any other good Japanese offensive players. Who am I forgetting?

  145. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    And here’s one more thing I’m going to say. I went through this season with a bunch of posters trashing me or taking shots at me continually. West Coast showed up in various forms throughout the season, but several regulars were also part of the party.

    Those people are no longer posting. I am going out of my way to keep things peaceful. I don’t intend to get into any nasty cat fights with anyone. My recommendation to anyone who can’t stand my cheerleading, or the way I think, or hates my little sayings – by all means don’t read my posts. And you can scroll past the just the way I have scrolled past posts in the past when I haven’t cared to read certain posters. I intend to enjoy the rest of the season and the postseason. If you can’t be civl or refrain from nastiness, don’t post to me. I promise I will do the same in return. If you choose to read my posts and have something to say about them or disagree with them, that’s fine. Just do it in a civil, adult manner. I promise to do the same in return.

    Those are 2 of the greatest.

    In fact, they are so good they are 2 greats even by American standards.

    I was really just talking about guys who can adapt their hitting approaches to suit the situation at hand.

    ———————–
    that’s a shame because he’s going to be a .240 hitter or worse the rest of his career, he just doesn’t make contact enough and it looks to me like his plate discipline has eroded as well-he swung at a pitch at least a foot outside the zone today in an important spot and grounded back to the pitcher.

  150. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 5:56 pm

  158. MG September 30th, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    I watched the video of the Cano AB in the 9th and was wrong, Cano did bunt towards 3rd base today-he just stood at home plate and pushed it towards 3rd, he made it look really easy.

    So easy some of the others should try the same thing…

  159. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:03 pm

  160. austinmac September 30th, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    I am okay with bringing back Ichiro as long as he and Gardner aren’t the corner outfielders. As Blake said earlier, not enough corner pop and too lefty.

    He is stating a case for a return without a doubt.

  161. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 30th, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    I had Michael Kay and Girardi on in the background – I forget what they call that part of the postgame. But I guess people write in questions for Girardi and he answers them. Someone asked something about his family and whether going home to them after the game made things better (paraphrase). Girardi said that going home to his family was everything because they didn’t care wheter the Yanks won or lost or what moves he made during the game, they were just happy he was home with him and he was happy to be with them, doing normal family things and doing things with his kids.

    Unconditional love. Nothing like it.

    It can’t be easy to manage the Yankees!

    I was so happy to see Cano simply push the ball down third. Do that a few times and it will make them think about the shift. Granderson, did you notice? Ibanez? Teixiera?
    ————-
    it probably wouldn’t change the positioning of the other 3 infielders but would probably move the 3rd baseman closer to the line to guard against it, that would leave a much bigger hole to the left field side of second base-didn’t Cano hit one there yesterday that was gloved by the SS (Lawrie was in right field) and wasn’t there another one today by Cano that Lawrie made a great play but threw it over 1st?

    That may be the reason Robby bunted, come to think of it…

    Jmills,

    I agree it is too much like the NBA where .500 teams are contenders.

  171. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    I vote beer and pizza – sushi leaves me feeling sans finish.

  172. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Is the theory behind eating Sushi that it is more nutritous because it isn’t cooked ?

  173. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    sp: nutritious

  174. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    The older I get, the more I value my relative anonymity. Giradi has a tough job – I’d be a basket case – self conscious enough posting here.

  175. tomingeorgia September 30th, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    crapiola at the Ryder Cup.. Great win, Yanks!

  176. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Mills-

    I’ll tell ya’ how to overcome that.

    Stand in front of a spotlight and squeeze a fresh lime over your head.

    Practice that every day and I guarantee you you never be self-conscious again.

    :)

  177. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    MTU – ok! Watched the Andy Kaufman story this past week,……man!!!

  178. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    Mills-

    Besides that you are our official Toronto mascot.

    We had a few good Sux fans who used to post here.

    Unfortunately they have vamoosed.

    :(

    Re: Other Posters,

    What happened to GB7, Joe From Long Island, Prufrock, Betsy, Doreen…?

  180. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Mills-

    Here’s another idea.

    If you and Blake ever get really crosswise to each other.

    You can settle it with a “drill off”.

    Sound good ?

    :)

  181. JobaTipsHisCap September 30th, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    wow, Ryder cup, that’s some choke job US team put up.
    way to go!

  182. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Mascot? Great, no one indescribable can seee my face :)

    Barry, Pruf is fine, sorry, no exact knowledge on the others.

  183. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Time for me to part company.

    Catch you later.

  184. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    MTU – drill off? Fine, I’m a bit rusty, but you’re the kind of fearless soul to lie down! :)

  185. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    Mills-

    I was thinking of ten or so total strangers.

    But thanks for thinking of me.

    ;)

  186. MTU September 30th, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    They have to be selected at random so that let’s me out.

  187. bruceb September 30th, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    Let’s go Europe! Clap, clap, clap. Yanks come back from four down and so do my golfers. Perfect day for me!!!

  188. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    MTU – come on,…its never as bad as it,” seams.”

  189. vrsce September 30th, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    If I had a Lohud blog wish
    I’d use it to get rid of Trish

    She whines and she cries
    Points fingers and lies

    An all round unwholesome cold fish

  190. austinmac September 30th, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Harper hit his 22nd homer today, now two behind the teenage record.

    I would like to formally encourage him not to sign an extension, but become a free agent in five years and join your favorite team. Think monument Brett. Think short porch.

  191. blake September 30th, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    “I would like to formally encourage him not to sign an extension, but become a free agent in five years and join your favorite team. Think monument Brett. Think short porch.”

    Co-signed…..maybe bring Trout and Machado and Profar wirh him!

  192. bruceb September 30th, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Seattle 2 runs on 11 hits. Oakland 2 runs on 3 hits. Mariners must have been watching our game yesterday.

    And, by the way, ole, ole, ole. OLE.

  193. jmills September 30th, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    Vrsce – Trish is a friend, say it to her while she is present.

  194. vrsce September 30th, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    I will be happy to repost.

  195. Nick in SF September 30th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Just do what Robby did 15 times a year to get a basehit and raise your batting average 20 points plus help the team and you won’t affect your swing dynamics at all.

    ——–

    Apparently Tex only gets paid for HRs and RBIs.
    ================

    Hitting with guys in scoring position doesn’t denerate RBIs?

  197. Don September 30th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    The Rangers win, does this mean the Yanks have clinched a WC spot?
