Aaron Laffey LHP

 

Umpires: Chad Fairchild HP, Jeff Kellogg 1B, Chris Conroy 2B, Paul Schrieber 3B

TV/Radio: YES/WCBS 880

Weather: clear, comfortable

 

Wells loves Toronto (pitching): Vernon Wells is batting .421 with three homers and four RBI in four games against the Blue Jays this season and has hit .340 with four doubles, five homers and 10 RBI in his last 11 games overall against his old team.

Starting success: This may not be the time for this item with Nova starting, but you never know. Yankees starters have 10 outings of three earned runs allowed or less and at least seven innings pitched, and that ties the Phillies for the MLB lead.

Pen writing good story: The Yankees’ bullpen has a 1.13 ERA over its last four games, spanning eight innings.

Update, 7:12: Cervelli takes a ball to the back of his fingers with Davis up, has to come out for Stewart.

Update, 7:18: Good start for Nova, 1-2-3 first with two Ks.

Update, 7:24: 1-2-3 first for Laffey, who had been cut recently by the Mets. Original scheduled starter Josh Johnson was scratched due tightness in his right triceps.

Update, 7:30: Nova serves up HR to Edwin Encarnacion off the facing of the second deck in left. 93 mph fastball down and in, 1-0.

Update, 7:46: 1-1. RBI for Nunez, beats out possible double-play ball. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to Twitter sources, has pulled Austin Romine in the middle of an inning, following Cervelli injury.

Update, 7:54: Nova gives up a single up the middle and then comes out with an injury, not sure the problem. He wasn’t pitching well these last two innings. There are no outs in the third, two on. Phelps comes on.

Update, 8:07: Rasmus RBI single for 2-1 lead, but that was it for the Jays. Bad night for the Yankees so far.

Update, 8:22: Wells sac fly, 2-2 in the third. Jon Heyman, no relation, states on Twitter that Cervelli has a broken hand.

Update, 8:24: Bases loaded, two outs, Laffey out, Lincoln in.

Update, 8:29: Ichiro goes down swinging, looked like a changeup. 2-2 after an eventful three innings.

Update, 8:32: Cervelli fractured right hand, surgery required, out a minimum of six weeks. Nova left with right elbow pain, MRI coming tonight.

Update, 8:45: Overbay snaps 0-for-16 skid, RBI triple, 3-2 Yankees in the fourth.

Update, 8:47: Wild pitch, 4-2.

Update, 9:08: Phelps gives up a walk but that’s it in the fifth. Gets Bautista swinging an at off-speed pitch to end it.

Update, 9:18: Maybe they should just intentionally walk Encarnacion every time. Another homer, 4-3.

Update, 9:39: Joba Chamberlain on for the seventh.

Update, 9:45: 1-2-3 for Joba, with help from a fine play by Nunez. Got to give belated credit to Phelps, who had a 6.23 ERA coming in. He was charged with one run and two hits, and fanned nine in his four innings. You would think he would be the one to start for Nova if downtime is needed. And elbow pain doesn’t sound good.

Update, 10:01: Passed ball, Cano scores, 5-3 Yankees after seven. Robertson on for the eighth.

Update, 10:06: Bautista hits a shot to left, 5-4.

Update, 10:16: Solo homer for Gardner, 6-4.

Update, 10:19: Rivera on for the ninth.

Update, 10:32: Yankees win 6-4 after Rivera strikes out Rasmus with the bases loaded.

    Austin Jackson OPS is something like .712 and he’s on pace for 138 K’s

  2. Against All Odds April 26th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Jets select Geno Smith

  3. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Hey baseball fans, so nice to see ya’!

  4. Against All Odds April 26th, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    Damn Cisco is injured

  5. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Oh great. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.

  6. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Let’s go, boys!

  7. dayglo April 26th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    What happened?

  8. austinmac April 26th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    I don’t like the way the ball bounced back to the mound off his knuckle. Square hit. Not good.

  9. Russell Munson April 26th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Hopefully Cervelli is okay.

    It’s early but Nova looks great so far.

  10. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Hi Tom, its been one Heck of a week.

  11. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    I’m watching on MLBtv, the Yes braodcast. How hard is Nova throwing ?

    Looked good that inn.

  12. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    What’s wrong with Cervelli ?

  13. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    jnills,
    Heck of a week indeed. Just so long as our guys beat your guys, all is well, though. Ice out yet?

  14. Russell Munson April 26th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Cervelli took a foul ball of his hand and was pulled.

  15. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Crap, got home and flipped on game and saw 2 outs and then the 3rd, felt happy, now I read/hear that Cervelli came out??? :cry:

  16. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    I want to Nova back Bautista off the plate. He’s way to comfortable reaching out over the plate.

  17. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Tom, no ice required. :D

  18. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Good evening,

    Go Yankees, Go Vato!!

    So far a very good inning from Nova, I think 15 strikes and 5 balls… His delivery is much more quiet and balanced… more importantly, he is keeping the ball down.

  19. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    jmills,
    A little ice doesn’t hurt the local white lightnin’.

  20. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Sh…

  21. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Bad pitch recognition by Cano there.

    He’s probably a little over anxious because he’s not going to see anything that’s very good tonight.

  22. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Jays homer hitters are warming up.

  23. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    RIP, George Jones. He deserves some.

  24. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    That wasn’t a bad pitch, just good hitting by E.

  25. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Tom, granted a little ice doesn’t take too much off white lightnin’,….but we don’t want too much taken off.

  26. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Here we go with Nova…

  27. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    If I’m not mistaken, commenter Jerkface is tweeting from the game tonight. Seeking confirmation from a well-placed source.

  28. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Go Yankees, Go Vato!!

    So far a very good inning from Nova, I think 15 strikes and 5 balls… His delivery is much more quiet and balanced… more importantly, he is keeping the ball down.
    ——-
    Go Vato! Go Yanks! I’m getting the game on iPhone but it is mostly frozen. So, please keep up the reports. Turley recovered after shaky command. Barnes stuff is nasty.

  29. Bad Scooter April 26th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Any team more loaded with steroid/HGH guys than Toronto. Bautista, Encarnacion, Melky, Lawrie, etc.

  30. MG April 26th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    if Nova keeps throwing those matzoh balls up there he is going to get schmeared…

  31. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    With our hitters in the lineup tonight, Nova can’t give up too many.

  32. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Don’t test Stewie, Melk Man! :mad:

  33. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Nice throw Stewart, made Melky look slow

  34. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Stewie Bench !

  35. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    YF,

    He gave up a homer on a 3-1 count, the pitch wasn’t bad ( outside corner ), still Encarnacion managed to pull it out… I think Tar has a point he needs to move the batters away… Melky was caught stealing 2nd

  36. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Stewie givith.

  37. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Bad play Stewart. : evil:

  38. MG April 26th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    ———–
    the HR pitch to Encarnacion was a fastball middle in, about thigh high, I don’t know where you would think it was outside…

  39. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    45 pitches, but mostly strikes… That Davis at bat took 10 pitches to start the game

  40. Bo knows April 26th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Nova with 45 pitches through 2. All over the place.

  41. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    MG, maybe it was there, but I think it was outside corner, i’ll check again

  42. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Alright, which one of you is calling O’Neil from Charlotte? I’m in San Francisco today.

  43. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    “Laffey” Moyer

  44. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Nunez has to look for a pitch to hit instead of just hacking at anything he sees.

  45. Jesus Bustero April 26th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Bryan Hoch

    Not a good sign for Cervelli… RT @RailRidersTT: Bobby Wilson now catching for the RailRdiers. Just came in mid-inning for Romine.

    1 Minute Ago

  46. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Wow! Jays D is a mess… Thank you

  48. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    Homer was ( according to what I just saw on highlights of MLBtv )
    in & down just off the plate, not away.

  49. MG April 26th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    sounds like Romine is getting called up…

  50. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Broken finger? Cervelli can catch a break

  51. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Can’t

  52. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Overbay looks really over matched. Terrible at bat.

  53. JobaTipsHisCap April 26th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    How old is overbay? 50?

  54. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    If Cervelli is hurt Stewart would most likely be the every day catcher. I really doubt that Girardi would trust Romine enough to let him catch everyday.

  55. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    My bad MG… You were right, it was middle in

  56. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Yeah that HR pitch was down and in, not a bad pitch to a RH. Batter.

  57. MG April 26th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Overbay is supposed to be a platoon, fill in 1st baseman, you can’t blame him for having to play against lefties because Youk is hurt and the Yankees roster doesn’t have any flexibility with Francisco as a non-hitting right handed DH

  58. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    My bad MG… You were right, it was middle in
    ——————-
    no problem, luis, it was a terrible pitch, right in Encarnacion’s happy zone…

  60. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Thanks for updates. What’s wrong with Cervy? They just pulled Romine from SWB game.

  61. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    The Yanks should just call up Wilson. It doesn’t make any sense to bring Romine up here to play once a week.

  62. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    Kawasaki as too big a lead. he should throw to 1st

  63. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    hit with a foul ball

  64. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    We have 2 guys with a good avg. in this game . I don’t count Stewie.

  65. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    What happened with Nova?

  66. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    The Yanks are just falling apart….

  67. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    For those who don’t have the NFL draft on mute, what’s up with these stunt guest announcers? Are they doing this for every pick in the second round?

    Waiting for a Cal Bear to get drafted, but I see on the crawl that the Packers have given Aaron Rodgers a 5-year $110M extension.

    Goodnight Ivan Nova???? Ouch.

  68. JobaTipsHisCap April 26th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Mystery injury

  69. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Oh crap, what now ?

  70. Bronx Jeers April 26th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    This is beyond ridiculous.

  71. MG April 26th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Nova looked awful out there tonight, I’m not surprised they had to take him out…

  72. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Maybe a blister? It looked like something that the trainer knew about since he didn’t check him.

  73. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    What happened with Nova?

    YF,

    He was hit by foul ball… Probably a broken finger?

  74. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Is there a curse on these guys or what ?

  75. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    Phelps with men on base… try, try again.

  76. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Hi guys, I’ve been trying to work out,…work concerns. ” What’s happening ? “

  77. luis April 26th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    MG April 26th, 2013 at 7:55 pm
    Nova looked awful out there tonight, I’m not surprised they had to take him out…

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

    Sorry MG, but on this I don’t agree… He had a very good 1st inning… On the second he lost some sharpness… On this inning I don’t know what to think about

  78. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Thanks, id, luis, et al. Nova out already? Hoping for the best for Cervy. Austin just got a hit off Barnes I believe change up after 93 mph fb. Barnes has legit stuff. JRam supposed to pitch a clean inning @<75 pitches.

  79. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    This is Phelps’ chance to show what he can do. Hopefully Nova isn’t seriously hurt but it’s clear that he has to spend some time in AAA.

  80. Bronx Jeers April 26th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Nova out with a case of bad vibes.

  81. jacksquat April 26th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Great, now Cervelli. And then Nova. Pretty soon some of you guys will get your wish, AA/AAA guys will be playing in NYC because everyone is injured.

  82. MG April 26th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    luis, he needed almost 20 pitches to get 3 outs in the 1st inning, got knocked around in the 2nd and was saved by the caught stealing, and hit a batter and gave up a hit this inning.

    What was good about his performance tonight?

  83. pat April 26th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    YankeesWFAN
    I’m hearing its a fracture of some kind for Cervelli. Again, no surprise given that Romine was pulled from game at AAA.

  84. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    Igotidd, r u the one with the Pearl Jam references?

  85. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Tar,

    They need to brush Bautista, he is crowding HP… You were right

  86. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Don’t know if Nova is really hurt. Suspiciously looks like that elbow injury Rodney Dangerfield had in the Caddyshack challenge match.

  87. Bronx Jeers April 26th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Pretty soon some of you guys will get your wish, AA/AAA guys will be playing in NYC because everyone is injured.

    —————————–

    The guy everybody wants to get called up is also injured.

    There’s still Adams (for now).

  89. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Is Nova hurt or just pulled?

  90. Niblick April 26th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    I hope the Yankees bad luck doesn’t rub off on the posters here.

  91. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Cervelli’s injury is similiar to what happened with Jeter. The bone was already in bad shape and that last hit finally broke it. The Yanks obviously knew that Cervelli’s finger was sore from getting hit recently. It stinks.

  92. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Bautista, crowd the plate, baby.( Loose ur front teeth if necessary )

  93. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    If you take out Davis at bat ( 10 pitches ) which was a very good at bat and ended up k’ing him, he did a good job 15 strikes and 5 balls is a good ration… By the way, on that at bat 9 pitches were strikes.

    The second inning he did allowed the homer and on the third inning he hit a batter… But his first inning was very good

  94. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:02 pm
    Tar,

    They need to brush Bautista, he is crowding HP… You were right

    Not only that, Bautista and Encarnacion have the same approach at the plate whether is runners on or bases empty: swing from the heals and try to hit a homer. No need to come in to either one of them. They will chase.

  95. Bronx Jeers April 26th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Is Nova hurt or just pulled?

    ———-

    Apparently he’s injured but at this point it’s a mystery. Donahue came out to the mound and Nova left.

  96. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    YF,

    Apparently hurt… Even on the video doesn’t look howor where

  97. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Nice throw by Stewart

  98. jacksquat April 26th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Two nice throws.

  99. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Like I said, runners on the move with one out, just swing from the heals and miss. Double play.

  100. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    jmills April 26th, 2013 at 8:01 pm
    Igotidd, r u the one with the Pearl Jam references?
    ————-

    my username yes. but i hardly make any references

  101. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Mike Axisa

    Given all the talk about Youkilis possibly going to DL, it’s probably worth noting David Adams isn’t playing in AAA tonight.

  102. blake April 26th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Sucks really bad about Cervelli… This team can’t catch a break

    Time to send nova down

  103. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    strike him out throw him out

  104. Don April 26th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Way to go Phelpsie. Two big strikeouts.

  105. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Jeers, Luis, thanks. Not good.

  106. MG April 26th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Knicks game time, much better than this snooze fest…

  107. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    This is where Phelps has done best. Coming on early in a game.
    Hope he keeps it up, I don’t know how many runs our lineup can score.

  108. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Francisco try swinging the bat….

  109. jacksquat April 26th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Should start a dead pool for this team.

  110. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    I have a twitter source that’s very highly placed in the Cervelli camp, and this person just tweeted “La vida? La vida es injustísima a veces..” which may or may be in reference to Francisco.

  111. Niblick April 26th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    Oh no – with that walk Bennie just earned himself another week of playing time.

  112. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Big Ben on base !

  113. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Igotidd, I love Pearl Jam, tres a lot, so glad Eddie is kicking!

  114. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Some small ball.

  115. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    I don’t like Gardner bunting against a garbage pitcher. It doesn’t make any sense to give him an out.

  116. Niblick April 26th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    That translates to “Life sucks, and then you die.”

    Is Laffey’s fastball 86mph?

  118. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Tou are correct, Cap.

  119. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Nick, de verdad que si…

    Too early for a bunt… Nice to see Francisco on base… a rare ocurrence

  120. Pat M. April 26th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    If you listen closely you can hear the clock ticking on Ivan Nova as a Yankee starter… I find him to be very confusing. It has to be a focus thing with him…..

  121. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Yea Gardner probably shouldn’t have bunted. He would’ve worked the count.

  124. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    “Life? life sometimes is very unfair”… that’s the acurate translation

  125. jacksquat April 26th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Walked Nix to get to Cano, haha.

  126. Locke April 26th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Please don’t hit Cano.

  127. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Here we go again. I’ve said before nothing will be easy, but we will win this game.

  128. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Uhmmm!! I don’t think he gets a pitch… otherwise is gone

  129. jacksquat April 26th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Egads…

  130. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Cano, UR all we got going, just about !

  131. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Anything on Cervy, or Cano yet ?

  132. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Cant believe i am saying this, but Wells is just the guy we want up here.

  133. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    I mean Nova !

  134. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    I got wrong, sorry; its igotid88.

  135. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    My source has confirmed bad news for Cervelli, however it is unclear if that’s just the same bad news we already know about. Probably. Which is to say, I don’t think I’ve really learned anything new.

    Let’s go Vernon!

  136. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    Good thing Gardner gave him an out….

  137. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    The bunt is looking worse and worse,

  139. jmills April 26th, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    Tom, I like your attitude! :)

  140. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    I remember when they would show a stat with bases loaded. Every batter would be above .300. Now I’m seeing a lot of under .300

  141. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Hey Vern that wasn’t his CU,that was his FB!!

  142. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    it’s okay

  143. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

  148. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    I didn’t see the play but why was cervelli’s hand out where it could get hit? Over anxious again or bad luck?

  149. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    I always wanted Romine and Adams to be part of the team for this season… Not this way though

  150. hardwired7 April 26th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    At least it’s early enough in the season that Cervelli can heal in time for the stretch run. Plus, as an added benefit, the rest of his body won’t be all beat to hell.

  151. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    jmills,
    Why watch or listen if you expect the worst every day? Bury yourself under a rock is better. We will win this game.

    That sucks. If Romine is called up, Stewart becomes the offensive piece of the catching tandem.

  153. jacksquat April 26th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    Romine was supposed to replace Stewart. :mad:

  154. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    I think the Yanks have to give Romine a chance to catch most of the games. Stewart is ok as the back up but you can’t send him out there everyday. Also it doesn’t make any sense to have Romine sit on the bench 90% of the time.

  155. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Bad luck

  156. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Damn ! Poor Cervelli !!!

  157. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    Poor Yankees.

  159. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Joe,

    Romine has a much better bat than Stewie…. That’s not very either…. But the problem is that Joe won’t play him… He is not a vet

  160. Niblick April 26th, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    That sucked.

  161. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    PFOF candlelight vigil/group hug scheduled for the post-game. :cry:

    Ok, new game, let’s hope Phelpsy trumps their crappy pen pieces.

  162. Locke April 26th, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    Poor Cervelli, I’ve always liked him and he has been so good this year.

  163. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    *That’s not very hard either*

  164. pat April 26th, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Surgery for Cisco. Out 6 weeks minimum.

    Nova elbow pain. MRI tonight

  165. Locke April 26th, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    As reported by YES just now:

    Cervelli: Fractured right hand which will require surgery and will be out a minimum of six weeks.

    Nova had pain in his elbow and will get an MRI

  166. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Really bad luck for Cervi…. elbow pain for Nova, going for an MRI

  167. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    Stewart is a good guy, but he’s really just a BUC. at best.

  168. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    I bet you that Romine is getting the majority of starts after the 2nd week of his promotion.

  169. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    Good slider

  170. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    We win this game with what we have tonight. Tomorrow’s another day. Sucks for Cervie, but we’ll muddle through.

  171. Ghostwriter April 26th, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    Cervy was off to such a great start this year. I was really excited for him… Here’s hoping Stewart and Romine can step up…

  172. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    Nick,

    How much?

  173. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    Tigers up 10-0 over Atl.

  174. Doreen April 26th, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    Well, they say Jeter leadsby example, but I don’t think that’s supposed to mean all these injuries…

  175. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    Good CU

  176. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    Maybe we can trade for Martin. :D

  177. Pat M. April 26th, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    Nova will be heading to the DL, I don’t think he ever fully recovered

  178. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    Good inning from Phelps there

  179. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    luis, we can bet money if you want. $25?

    Or I can put up some local chocolate or something else from San Francisco vs. something from Venezuela. More fun that way.

  180. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Nunez hasn’t been able to buy a hit !

    Let’s see if he can rent one ! He’s due !

  182. astrocityfan April 26th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Just saw the news. I feel horrible for Cervelli. This was his big opportunity. Hopefully he will make it back in the 6 week window. This team is snake bit smh

  183. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    I wonder how long Nova’s elbow has been bothering him. It seemed like the trainer knew what the problem was since it was a quick visit and he came out right away. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had for his last couple of starts and that’s why he has been so bad.

  184. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Hmmmm, I think we can say that trading Chambliss to the Blue Jays brought some bad mojo to the Yankees.

  185. Locke April 26th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Nunez is getting better at taking those hits.

  186. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Well, he rented a walk !

  187. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Overbay should bunt since he has no chance at the plate

  188. Doreen April 26th, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Pat M, if there’s something, at least it will explain something about his season so far.

  189. tomingeorgia April 26th, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    4 NYY,
    If we have to be, then we will. Pray for rain.

  190. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Nova threw his hardest his last outing, before this.

  191. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Wow…Overbay can hit..

  192. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    HA!!!!

  193. Doreen April 26th, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Bad play by that catcher

  201. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Either the Blue Jays are a collection of the dumbest players I have ever seen or the worst coached team I have ever seen.

  202. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    JRam has just entered the game, top of the 6th.

  203. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Bunt!!

  204. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    I was kidding, but I guess he should have.

  205. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    It seems like Cervelli gets hit in his hand a lot behind the plate. It seems like he doesn’t move his hand quick enough and he is exposing himself back there. His hand shouldn’t be there.

  206. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    Just saw the replay of Cervelli, he had his bare out in the open. Either put it behind you or catch with it behind your glove.

    Damn !!!

  207. jackamir April 26th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    How many times will that 4th OF pop up to the left side? Production when?

  208. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    As many times as he tries to uppercut the ball.

  209. Locke April 26th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    CANO with a bunt? LOLZ

  210. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    ” It seems like he doesn’t move his hand quick enough and he is exposing himself back there. His hand shouldn’t be there.”

    More Likely he got anxious and moved his hand out before he should have. But I didn’t see the play. I asked earlier was it just bad luck or?

  211. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Laffey, now Loup ‘Y’

  212. Doreen April 26th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    What a slooooow game

  213. luis April 26th, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Nick,

    I am heading out…But I’ll be back later… We will discuss terms then, ok?

  214. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    Gardner doesn’t try often to drive the ball, just loop it somewhere.

    Not good, IMO.

  215. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    Sounds good, luis, the framework will be as originally proposed. See you later.

  216. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    Gibbons looks like a grumpy old man

  217. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Seriously;
    how many starters in the AL are worse that Nunez – but we constantly beat the heck out of Overbay & Nix.
    Nunez has some at bats that look like he’s the clown trying to hit the Pinneda (?) at a Clown Rodeo.
    Very sad.
    .170

    (…and how many times, so far, has Overbay bailed him out with his frequent erratic throws ?)

  218. blake April 26th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Man that sucks for Cervy

  219. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    Watch Stewarts hand, that’s where Cervelli’s should have been.

  220. blake April 26th, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    Romine will get his chance now….sorry to hear that about Nova as well….hopefully it’s nothing major

  221. astrocityfan April 26th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    So who replaces Cervy? Romine? I say bring up Murphy! Let’s put some pop back at catcher! Who’s with me? :)

  222. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Alright, Phelps!!!!!!

  223. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Good pitch from Phelps. He looks really good so far.

  224. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    As I said earlier, this is where Phelps has done his best work :

    Coming on early in relief, don’t know why, but he does .

    Let’s hope it continues.

  225. Tabbert April 26th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Sure would be nice to win tonight after all the bad news. This would guarantee a split at the very worst. Then with the astros coming to town, this could be a very good homestand. Its very important that we take advantage of these 10 games. 7-3 would be a great result.

  226. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    I know I say this every time Phelps comes in long relief. But he should be able to make the start on Wednesday vs the Astros.

  227. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Romine cannot hit ML pitching.

  228. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    When Wells uses the whole field, he’s pretty good still.

  229. Tabbert April 26th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    The injury to nova is not the absolute worst thing in the world. Sucks that he is hurt, but that wont affect us nearly as much as the loss of cervelli. Hopefully Romine will actually get a chance to start, but i doubt he gets much playing time.

  230. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Don’t count of Houston rolling over, they have a bunch of guys that we don’t know.

  231. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    The injury actually helps Nova. Now he can rehab at AAA, where he should be to work on his mechanics and clear his head. He may return a better pitcher.

  232. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Phelps not really throwing many strikes. But has 6 ks

  233. Tyler April 26th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    I feel really bad for Cervelli…got a chance to play and had been doing great.

  234. itsgonnabealongseason April 26th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Phelpsie!

  235. blake April 26th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Phleps should be in the rotation anyway

  236. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Did the Yankees bat? I changed the channel for a second and now the Jays are batting again

  237. Bronx Jeers April 26th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    What’s up with that elbow up thing he’s doing?

  238. Tabbert April 26th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    It’s not a matter of Houston rolling over or not, its about talent. They are rolling out a glorified minor league team. That’s not to say that they cant steal a win.

  239. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Oooof, run line sucker punch. :shock:

  240. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Sometimes Phelps reminds me of Scott Kamienicki.

  241. itsgonnabealongseason April 26th, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    “They are rolling out a glorified minor league team.”

    So are the Yankees.

  244. Tabbert April 26th, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    The braves are a very good team, but I think they are going to get exposed all weekend. They are only 7-5 ( soon to be 7-6) after their laughable schedule for the first ten games. Not to mention, they have three starters playing at unsustainable rates.

  245. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    9 K’s

  250. Tyler April 26th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Feel badly for Nova but this might be a really good thing. Get Phelps back in the rotation where he belongs and allow Ivan to work out some mechanical issues without the stigma of losing his rotation and being sent down.

  251. Bronx Jeers April 26th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Brett Lawrie = massive tool.

  252. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Is it Joba time ?

  253. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    9 ks

  254. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    They have to try and scratch out another run

  255. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 9:28 pm

    I would let Phelps go to 100

  256. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Lawrie is easily the most popular player in Toronto. Born in Canada, kind of brings that hockey player mentality to the game. Very animated between pitches. But you are right, a massive tool.

  257. JobaTipsHisCap April 26th, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    I guess overbay is a grandfather now.

  258. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 9:32 pm

  260. joecembrale April 26th, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    I’d feel a better letting Phelps go with a two run lead. Otherwise, go to the formula, although Logan doesnt inspire confidence.

  261. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    This guy is good, throws real hard.

  262. itsgonnabealongseason April 26th, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    THAT was a mismatch.

    Nix never had a chance.

  263. 4 NYY April 26th, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    Boone time ?

  264. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    I am surprised that Girardi didn’t try to get another inning out of Phelps. Here comes Joba…

  265. jacksquat April 26th, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    Very nice Nunie.

  268. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    I guess Cashman sees alot in Nunez.
    Eventually these pop-ups will drop in for hits !
    Mendoza line — here we come !!!

    How old is Bobby Meacham ???

  269. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    17 k for Sanchez

  270. itsgonnabealongseason April 26th, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Joba was lucky. Two rockets for outs. He’s just not very good and gives up too many hard hit balls.

    Compare that to the Jays reliever who dominated Nix. That is how you do it.

  271. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Atta boy, Joba.

  272. igotid88 April 26th, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    He’s at 122 pitches so I doubt they let him go for 20k.

  273. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    Jose Ramirez in his Double-A debut: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 6 K. He gets the save, his first in 89 MiLB appearances

    Seriously, if he is healthy I would not even mess around with AA very long, he has two major league pitches already.

  276. yankeefeminista April 26th, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    Ramirez’s stuff was filthy. He sat 93-95 and topped at 96. Great debut here in Trenton.

    Any update on Nova?

  277. itsgonnabealongseason April 26th, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Gonna be a lot of those feeble AB’s from Stewart for the next 6 weeks.

  278. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    Nunez really stinks as a hitter.

    Second free run by that catcher. Should have stopped both of them.

    If you are going inside on these 2 you have to get it there. You can’t just throw fastballs over the plate.

  290. Tar April 26th, 2013 at 10:09 pm

    They really need to move Bautista off the plate.

  291. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 10:09 pm

    Another run line gut punch, ugh, these guys just don’t quit.

    Let’s get that run back, fellas!

    Nunie !
    The run scored while HE was at bat !
    Things are good.
    ….oh yeah….another Strike Out for the Nunie.

    And Girardi will say something like — he was really battling and flailing today, I love it !—

    Put him on the same bus as Nova to SWB ….they really need alot more help; or they’re both simply ‘over their heads’….not sure which, but Scranton seems sensible…

    “…Bobby Meacham — c’mon down !…”

  298. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 10:16 pm

  326. Tyler April 26th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    blake-

    I like it. I’m hoping that they give Romine a lot of playing time since he’s been so hot in AAA but I’m expecting a lot of Stewart. Even more misfit. Loving it.

  327. blake April 26th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @mashmore98: Murphy was very disappointed that Cervelli had gone down. Said he’d obviously never played at AAA, but would like to think he could do it.

  328. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    If we had Musty – we’d be 18-4.

    He’s that good.

  329. blake April 26th, 2013 at 10:36 pm

  336. Tyler April 26th, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Rob Refsnyder 10-29 in Tampa for a .344 average. The guy could end up in AAA before the year is over, haha. One of my new favorite prospects.

  337. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Only downside to that game was that I was hoping our pal Jerkface could get to see Boonie on the mound.

  338. blake April 26th, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    @DanBarbarisi: Nova’s MRI results not back yet. Girardi says Nova complained of discomfort after 2nd inning, then couldnt finish 3rd.

  339. blake April 26th, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    @DanBarbarisi: Girardi says Austin Romine will be called up to replace cerveli

  340. blake April 26th, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    @BryanHoch: Girardi said he’ll play catching “by ear” between Stewart and Romine, see how Romine does

  341. MTU April 26th, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    Thanks Blake.

    Let’s just hope it’s inflammation and stiffness and not something worse.

    Too bad for Cervelli. That guy just has no luck when it comes to injuries.

    Possible opportunity for the Mission Impossible Man.

    Sad way for it to happen but a chance for Romine.

  344. Tyler April 26th, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    As much as I complain about Stewart he hasn’t been awful for a backup thus so far. I just hope Girardi doesn’t overplay him. Give Romine 4 a week and Stewart 2… if Romine plays great, make it 5 and 1.

  345. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Deep down, I wonder if Girardi wishes that the Yanks still had Montero so that he could give all his playing time to Romine. :neutral:

  346. MTU April 26th, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    Musty is playing in extended ST games. Has been since Monday.

    No word on when he might join SWB.

  347. MTU April 26th, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    If Nova is out for a while Phelps takes his slot. Warren takes Phelps role.

    And I guess they bring up another mop up man to backfill Warren.

  354. Captain Clutch April 26th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    The Mariners must be really down on Montero. He isn’t playing again tonight. Since their team isn’t going anywhere you would think they would want him getting experience by catching everyday. It looks like they are just waiting for their top catching prospect to be ready in AAA.

  355. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    Good evening!

    Nice win. It seems we’re going to need some extra nerve pills this season

    Sad news about Cervy. Stewy will get overexposed, so Romine will get his chance

    Phelps? Great game. Golden opportunity for him now. Will Wang be called up? Nuno?

    Mo was a BABIP victim today. But he has 8 saves in 22 games. That’s on pace for… Overuse. With our offense, we will need a couple of saves from Joba and D-Rob

    Youk down, Musty time? If not now, when?

  356. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    “…Don’t like the way he’s (Montero) not being used in Seattle…”

    Why in the world would such a ‘catching stud’ NOT be catching every day ???

    HOFer Kelly Shoppach – that’s why ….yup … Kelly Shoppach.

  357. MTU April 26th, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Please do not bring Montgomery up just to be a mop up Man.

    or Nuno. Or Marshall.

  358. Nick in SF April 26th, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    I think Mo will be unavailable tomorrow, but Joba and DRob have also pitched in consecutive games. Hopefully CC will be back on his game and can give some length and maybe the bats — if there are any remaining bats on the roster — can put up some runs.

  359. MTU April 26th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    OK. Who is responsible for putting the hex on our Team ?

    C’mon. Fess up ? Have some cajones.

  360. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Hi, MTU!

    Nuno is on a roll a starter. He will be kept down. Just threw his name on the conversation

  361. MTU April 26th, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    jmv-

    Evening.

    They are more likely to go w Adams than Ronnier.

    Mustelier is still rehabbing and Adams has been hitting at AAA.

    Most likely Youkilis will be back tomorrow.

  362. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Nick, how’ve you been?

    D-Rob and Joba are young. I think they could pitch three days in a row if needed, but not making a habit of it, don’t you think?

    We need to play the Astros. Or the Indians…

  363. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    Are they afraid he will find his stroke again? And with that lineup with no protection. There’s not much he can do. I mean it’s still April and he hasn’t played everyday.
    Noesi looking good so far.

    Very well, thanks, jmv, hopefully you as well. Very sad news about our Venezuelan catcher, but he has a lot of experience in overcoming adversity and working hard to recover.

    If there’s a silver lining to this, maybe it will be that Romine does so well that they want to keep him up and Cervelli comes back and replaces Stewart.

  371. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    Montero:

    “… Are they afraid he will find his stroke again?…”

    Yup…and then they might win some games….and they dont want to win games, do they ???

    Right now he’s stinking as a hitter (not sure how his ‘marginal’ catching skills are doing) and he cant outhit Mr. HOF Shoppach.

    “… Are they afraid he will find his stroke again?…”
    …..really?

  372. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Montero is batting .208.

    Only Ben Francisco & Nunuz make him look decent.

  373. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 11:23 pm

    “Pat M. says: April 26, 2013 at 11:19 pm I think some need to watch Jesus hit, he looks lost folks….Tacoma is coming up by months end”

    I usually don’t get into Montero’s talk (really itchy topic here), but the main problem seems to be his plate discipline? If you’re not getting anything to hit, just take the walks…

  374. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Montero:

    He’s hitting .208 !
    His OBP is .232 !
    He has 2 stinking walks all year !!!

    …. 2….!

  375. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    Nick,

    I’m doing Ok, thanks!

    You have a point on Cervelli and adversity. I’m looking forward to a Romine/Cervy combo, too

  376. Pat M. April 26th, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    jmv. he’s expanded the zone by at least four inches, especially on the lower right quad.. I mentioned this to Tin Cup the other day, with the Yanks Montero was a good hitter with power just what the Yanks wanted…..With Seattle they want him to be first power hitter who can hit thus the problems that have plagued him

  377. UpState April 26th, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    He needs to go to AAA like Nunez and work at his craft.
    Talented kids – but they need help now.
    Now – they are pretty much sucking.

  378. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    Nunez has to stay, they don’t have enough IF’s… I can’t believe we’re worried about his bat. He’s not elite, but has shown a decent bat in the past

  379. jmv April 26th, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    Pat,

    It’s sad. The kid is “struggling while trying to overachieve”. It must have gotten into his head. A 22 year’s head.

    —————-

    They’re replacing him with a career .227 hitter who started the season in a hot streak but is now coming back to earth. Catching skills notwithstanding I don’t believe it has hurt them.

  382. UnKnown April 26th, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    Wow I never thought this team could sustain the amount of injuries that they have already incurred. The key I think is so far it has not been to the pitching side of things. (minus Nova)

    Keep that pitching in tact and they can survive the injuries on the offensive side for a bit longer.

    We do have at least 4 good pitchers that could keep us in the game. The offense has been a surprise for the most part.

    Good evening guys again,

    So I missed some good baseball?

    Nick,

    The bet is that after two weeks of playing time, Romine becomes the number one catcher, Is that right?

    The wager is one box of chocolats… In my case I will be sending you your choice of ” Toronto” my favorite or a box of “carre” they are both from savoy and they are extremely good… Unless, you want something else…

    If you lose, I want some Ghirardeli ( not sure if I spelled it right ), sounds good?
