Houston, we have a problem: The Yankees are 8-1 all time vs. the Astros, winning the last seven.

Command performances: The Yankees have walked two or less in each of their last seven games.

K Korner: The Yankees have struck out at least 13 batters five times this season, including in three of the last five games.

Update, 7:18: Wondered if the Astros would get a hit tonight with this dreadful lineup. But they’ve got four hits and a 3-0 lead.

Update, 7:27: Cano singles, but Wells erases him, 6-4-3.

Update, 7:33: Hit batter, but Pettitte gets a double-play ball.

Update, 7:40: Another double play, this time Boesch hits into it. 3-0 after two.

Update, 7:50: Pettitte strands Carlos Pena at third after a two-out triple.

Update, 7:56: Lucas Harrell turns in 1-2-3 inning, has faced the minimum through three, although the Yankees have a hit and a hit batter.

Update, 8:10: Pettitte not fooling anybody, 5-0 after the two-run double by Brandon Barnes in the fourth.

Update, 8:20: Two Yankees hits, but they were sandwiched around a Cano double-play ball. End of four.

Update, 8:23: Pettitte gives up a leadoff single, then fans Pena. Adam Warren is warming up.

Update, 8:28: Double by Cedeno knocks out Pettitte. His worst start of the young year, five runs, 10 hits, 4 1/3. And it could get worse. Two are in scoring position. Warren gets the ball.

Update, 8:31: Wild pitch, 6-0.

Update, 8:34: Two-run HR for Corporan, 8-0. Yankees’ last five wins have been come from behind. This would take a lot, though.

Update, 8:39: Barnes RBI single, 9-0. Warren looking Triple-A-like.

Update, 8:48: Yankees get their fourth single and that’s it in the fifth. Pettitte, by the way, was charged with seven runs.

Update, 8:56: Warren has a good inning, 1-2-3.

Update, 9:06: Finally, a Yankees run. Wells RBI bloop single in the sixth.

Update, 9:16: Vidal Nuno making big-league debut, comes on for seventh.

Update, 9:30: Nuno gave up two hits and no runs after Corporan got tagged out to end the inning after appearing to pull a hamstring on the way to third. Harrell is finally out after giving up a single and drilling Romine in the stomach with one out in the seventh.

Update, 9:35: Another double play ends the inning. Yankees have hit into four double plays.

Update, 9:53: Attendance announced at 34,262. Looked like less. Not a lot of people left here now.

Update, 10:08: Yankees lose 9-1.

    Go Lefty! Go Austin! Go Yanks!

  2. Sir Harden Thick April 29th, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Why is this Collins thing news? Mike Piazza been out for awhile

  3. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Trenton game postponed. DH tomorrow.

  4. jackamir April 29th, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Lets go Andrew Eugene Pettitte.
    Lets go Yanks!
    Lets keep the train moving!!

  5. GregD April 29th, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Empty stadium tonight

  6. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    No surprise regarding attendance: April weekday game, crummy weather (rainy and cold), crummy Houston team (still an NL team to most).

  7. Nick in SF April 29th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    If you had the top of the first inning for Kay’s first “Andrew Eugene Pettitte”, you win!

  8. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    One more, Andy.

  9. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Good to see Laird.

  10. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    Go Yankees,Go Andy, Go Romine!!

  11. Nick in SF April 29th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    I saw Carter at a Reno Aces game when he was on the Sacramento River Cats, the A’s AAA club.

    My scouting report is that he has a lot of power but Andy can get him out.

    There’s probably 80% who still don’t know they were moved

  13. Nick in SF April 29th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    Thanks for ignoring my scouting report, Andy. :mad:

  14. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    Primo,

    Got the e-mail :D Will be in touch

  15. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    primo, good deal :D

  16. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Crap.

  17. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Cool that Romine’s back there tonight.

  18. justinxdance27 April 29th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Melky Mesa just missed a grand slam by about two feet

  19. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Coney calls a really good game. He’s my favorite since Kaat retired.

  20. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    Settle down, Andy; just need one more.

  21. jackamir April 29th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    Pena just told Overbay that if the Yanks didn’t pick him up Pena would be a Yankee.

  22. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    GW, me too.

  23. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    Pruf, yep.

  24. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    Oy. Andy is starting to make me nervous.

  25. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Mesa, alas…

  26. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Boesch has no range.

  27. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    He doesn’t have it tonight

  28. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    I can’t remember the last time I saw Andy miss so much.

  29. ac1 April 29th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Is this really happening?

  30. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Ugh. We’ll have to be in slugfest mode with a “B” lineup. But at least it’s Houston…

  31. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Strike

  32. igotid88 April 29th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Astros have had some good games

  33. Sir Harden Thick April 29th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Harnell is a decent pitcher. Quailty starts in all but one. Astros might actually win this game

  34. Niblick April 29th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Andy’s doing his best to make the Astros look like champs. One more hit, and we’re in big trouble.

  35. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    He doesn’t have it tonight

    He has good stuff. The control is the issue. He’ll right the ship

  36. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Doesn’t look like it. He’ll find a way to get outs though.

  37. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    luis, yep, no location so far. But least we get out of it, finally.

  38. Nick in SF April 29th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Blah blah blah baseball, Suzyn. :cry:

  39. NYY fan in NH April 29th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    this is embarrassing

  40. Niblick April 29th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    I can’t wait for the Binder to blame it all on Romine and bench him permanently.

  41. blake April 29th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    No bueno Andy

  42. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Nah, I think they actually like Romine.

  43. GregD April 29th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Who are you and what have you done with Andy Pettitte?

  44. NYY fan in NH April 29th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Sox swept these guys with ease…

  45. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Check in later :D

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

    At the end it seem to get better, but his shoulder is flying open… His CB has very little bite… The slider not good either and haven’t seen the cutter…But in any case, he needs the command to navigate any MLB lineup… But I think he will adjust as he always does

  47. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    GregD April 29th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Who are you and what have you done with Andy Pettitte?
    ==

    :LOL: Andy was just showing some Christian charity for the lowly Astros. Spotting the Astros three runs shouldn’t be a problem.

  48. jackamir April 29th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Gardner is a nothing. I can’t wait for them to dump his arse…

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

    Gardner has to get into swing mode. He is always in walk mode.

  50. GregD April 29th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Ghostwriter

    Lets chip away and get some runs back

  51. RadioKev April 29th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    At $20m, are the Astros over paid?

  52. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Sometimes, I really wonder what Robbie is thinking…

  53. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Later primo!

  54. ac1 April 29th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Boston handled houston like they were a single a team……

  55. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Oh!…. Command not control, because the few strikes he threw were hammered, missed his location big time

  56. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Darn it, Andy

  57. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    I think that was the cutter

  58. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    DP!

  59. RadioKev April 29th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    What a double play!

  60. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Huge DP! That should get Andy going.

  61. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Nice DP

  62. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    There is a good pitch! …. Excellent 2DP

  63. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    He adjusted, those two sliders were very good

  64. jackamir April 29th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Okay, now lets get it started with a crooked number….Andy has it going now!!!!

  65. mick April 29th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Kay’s remaining schtick is to give the pitchers middle name as he does with Andy and CC.
    Does Kuroda or Hughes have one?
    Some day he will be cured of this too as he keeps his hand in his pocket so as not to point with his thumb at Cone or ONeill.

  66. mick April 29th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Andy and Romine had to get to know each other in the 1st.
    He will settle down now and give up nothing the rest of the way.

  67. Nick in SF April 29th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    How dare you. :mad:

  68. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    Kuroda’s is Fujimaru

    Hughes is Emanuel

    J/k :D

  71. itsgonnabealongseason April 29th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    Boston handles Houston with absolutely no problem.

    Yanks get humiliated by Houston.

    Way to go, Yanks!

  72. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Isn’t a bit too early for humiliated?

  73. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    One thing is for sure… We need to take better at bats

  74. DocTodd April 29th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Isn’t it strange that Jeter can’t play tonight due to injury, yet wears his cap and uniform? And the manager and coaches wear unis too?

  75. GregD April 29th, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    We can score 5-6 runs tonight

  76. igotid88 April 29th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    this guys walks a lot of batters. they need to be patient

  77. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Really? Japanese people have middle names? Who knew?

  78. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    Gardner should have caught that.

  79. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    Gardner misplayed that

  80. luis April 29th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    No Ghost… I was joking

  81. ac1 April 29th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    I dont get it. Pena hits like .800 vs us and .100 vs everyone else

  82. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Could have caught that one. Mistimed the jump.

  83. jackamir April 29th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Gardner is so overrated…It is so annoying to me that you Lohudders think he is special..

    You bet your boots he’s special! He’s the best centerfielder in the business.

  87. Ghostwriter April 29th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    In the replay, it looked tougher than I initially thought it was.

  88. blake April 29th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    If Andy holds them there the Yanks should ( should win)….Gardner has to catch that ball….not an easy play but good defenders need to make that

    That was ugly Lyle

  91. jackamir April 29th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Nunez’s swing is too long….he’s gettin exposed a little but as teams are pounding him inside with fastballs and throwing him slop away …..gotta adjust Nunie….the league has adjusted to you ….now he has to adjust back

    Bernie used to misplay a lot of balls as well. He was just able to run them down. And of course, there was that sparkling bat of his..

  96. GregD April 29th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Anyone else playing beat the streak?

  97. blake April 29th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    “Bernie used to misplay a lot of balls as well. He was just able to run them down. And of course, there was that sparkling bat of his..”

    Yea when you can take like he could you love with a few misplayed balls

  98. joeman April 29th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    Gardner is on pace for almost 160 K’s this year..the guy is a K machine

  99. GregD April 29th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Andy’s curveball today is el stinko

  100. Tar April 29th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    It doesn’t surprise me that Nunez is struggling with the bat.

    It wouldn’t be the first time that a player who is concentrating so much time and energy on one side of the ball, struggles on the other side. That is what I think is going on here.

    When he gets comfortable enough with his D and can stop thinking about every little thing, I am willing to bet his offense will start to come back. Probably wont be overnight, but thats why you need to have patience with young players.

  101. luis April 29th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    That’s a good pitch

  102. joeman April 29th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    I’ve saying for years Gardner is a pinch runner and a late game replacement player….

  103. jackamir April 29th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Kay for a non-player lives on the cliche bandwagon…”Mr. Redundant”

  104. ac1 April 29th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    He has to cut that off

  105. Tar April 29th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    That was a bad pitch

  106. Nick in SF April 29th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    :shock:

  107. luis April 29th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Tar,

    Good post.

    Yikes, Hanging CB

  108. ac1 April 29th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Wow

  109. igotid88 April 29th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    ugh

  110. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    This is pathetic. You would think even decent stuff could get this AA lineup out.

  111. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Grrr. Warren warming.

  112. NYY fan in NH April 29th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    these are the teams the Yankees have to pile up wins on. This is unacceptable.

  113. RadioKev April 29th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    Romine with a nice try there at third

  114. RadioKev April 29th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Wow. Great save by Overbay.

  115. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    I wonder if Andy not knowing and being comfortable with Romine has something to do with this bad performance. Probably not but they definitely weren’t on the same page early.

  116. itsgonnabealongseason April 29th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Red Sox starters didn’t have too many problems getting those guys out.

    Pettitte was pathetic.

  117. jlyanks85 April 29th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    We lost 2 of 3 vs the nats at home in 2009 when we won the WS and they lost over 100 games. So it’s not the end of the world to lose here. They are still a major league team, no matter how bad they are.

  118. Nick in SF April 29th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    oooooooooookay, hold the line at 5, get back one per inning and one more for good luck, 7-5 Yankee win.

  119. RadioKev April 29th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Gardy! Very nice.

  120. luis April 29th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Oh I get it…. Trollyland citizen

    Nice Gardy

  121. luis April 29th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    He didn’t touch the base, he was out

  122. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Gardner better be stealing here

  123. GregD April 29th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 8:16 pm
    Gardner better be stealing here

    Agree

  124. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    I guess Gardner forgot how to steal bases. Watching him on 1st base you would never even know that he has speed.

  125. ac1 April 29th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Three double plays and 5-0 to wort team in league… Good times

  126. cs in la April 29th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Its only the 4th, but the Yankees were due for a clunker.

  127. luis April 29th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Good piece of hitting form Wells there

  128. luis April 29th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    I think is Haf time

  129. cs in la April 29th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Bet that they will blame it on never having seen this pitcher before. They’re all Cy Young the first time, right?

  130. Tar April 29th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    “Gardner better be stealing here”

    Gardner is not running because Girardi doesn’t want him to. it’s because Cano is hitting behind him.

    But it’s not quite working out, so maybe they need to re-think it.

  131. I Am Winning April 29th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    It’s amazing the Yankees have the 3rd best record in baseball when they have such major players still out.

    Andy wasn’t good tonight-Cone seems to think he was having problems getting on the same page with Romine.

    Cone knows a lot more about pitching than any of us but catching Andy is pretty easy-you spot the fastball away early in the count, switch off to the curve ball if he’s having trouble getting ahead, and finish the guy off with the cutter.

    Just a bad night all around, they’ve won 4 close games in a row and will bounce back tomorrow.

    Yes it’s only one game but those 4 vs Toronto could have gone either way.

    Tonight is an example while hopefully not a precursor of exactly how bad this line up is.

    Gardner is a fourth O.F and any discussion here should be had about facts and not what people think he’s capable of.

    Until some of the payroll returns (late May at best) they are at the mercy of their pitching staff.

    Not getting hits is one thing but the at bats are horrible.

    Judging from some of these comments, you’d think some people have no understanding of what a 162 game season means. It’s a marathon. Astros have been getting killed lately, Yanks have been winning a lot and probably playing over their heads a bit. Stros were probably due a W, Yanks probably due a L. It happens. It’s baseball, it’s sports, it’s odds. It’s also just one game. You’d think people would have realized this by now….

  188. NYY fan in NH April 29th, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    When the pitching is bad, the offense goes with it.. That’s alot to ask of the staff, but this is probably the worst loss of the season if this stays the course.

    “We lost 2 of 3 vs the nats at home in 2009 when we won the WS and they lost over 100 games. So it’s not the end of the world to lose here. They are still a major league team, no matter how bad they are.”

    +1

    I also believe that Romine being new didn’t help things. I’m not blaming the kid – he has to learn the pitchers and the hitters, and this is his first game this season. But as Andy is someone who likes the catcher to call his game, even if Andy shook off a little, it probably wasn’t easy for them to work together. That will come in time.

    About the Yanks not hitting. BD. It happens.

    And I hope nobody got down on Warren. These kids have to be given some leeway, especially a kid who doesn’t see a lot of action.

  195. Pat M. April 29th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    EVERY team in the majors is going to have a few clunkers (a few at the least) over the course of a season. (Those who fail to remember the lessons of history are forced to repeat them.) If you remember that, you don’t have a real hard time with it when it does happen.

  198. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Pat M, Austin also had good gap power in Trenton.

    “Atta boy, Gardy.

    Maybe his pitch selection wasn’t the best for Andy. It’s okay to look at all sides of an issue and actually consider the less-thought-about possibility.

  207. igotid88 April 29th, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    Harrel has been cruising through this lineup the first 5 innings when they should had brought his pitch count up.

    “Real question: Why can’t the bench call the game? They don’t do any of that in the bigs where a manager/pitching coach will call pitches and give the signal to the catcher?”

    Shame, there are teams and times when the bench calls the game. I only know that because we had that discussion in the past and I believe I was told it didn’t happen and when we did a search on it we found out that some teams did it.

  214. Shame Spencer April 29th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Okay, this is hard. Phil Hughes’d Car Lot is much easier to advertise.

  215. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Shame, I still think that when you have someone like Andy who basically relies on his catcher to call the game, and Romine really new at this and not knowing the Astros hitters at all, well it might be a little hard getting and staying in synch. I don’t see it as the end of the world though. The longer Romine is around, the better he’ll get to know the opposition.

    Good point though. Did the bench call the game? Who knows.

    Nothing is the end of the world – except the end of the world.

  216. Shame Spencer April 29th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Shame, let me also say that Andy may also have been missing his spots. I’m not saying this is totally on Romine. I’m just saying it’s not a stretch to think that a new catcher and his pitcher might have a little difficulty when the catcher is calling his first game in the majors. (Don’t remember if this is his actual first game, but I know for sure it’s his first game in a long time, if it isn’t.)

    trisha – He could have gotten his rhythm off but I really doubt it matters to Andy much who is catching, even if he doesn’t like to call his own game. You just gotta figure he’s been through a number of them in his career and they probably handed Romine the book on Andy from day one that he arrived.

    And I think it was the Astros that no-hit us with a bunch of pitchers..

    “I don’t think that Andy would appreciate you running him out there for two in one day! Have a heart :)

    But he’d do it dammit! He’s a warrior. That’s what distinguishes him from the beer-swilling, chicken-eating, card-playing pitching staff from beantown, the team that had to be taken out on Henry’s yacht and give IPods when they complained about having to play a double header!

    I just hope Andy’s outing was a case of just having a bad night and not have to do with an injury or back problems. As long as Andy’s healthy the loss isn’t a big deal.

    Of course it would be nice to now win the next 2. Playing in the East is very tough and you have to get easy wins when you can. Like when you play a team like Houston. 2 out 3 is just fine.

    “Its not the loss as much as some of the reslly bad ab’s we are seeing”

    So for a night you’re seeing bad ABs. Not to minimize it, but BFD. Think of all of the nights when you’ve seen great AB, when you’ve seen the Yanks come from behind, when you’ve seen big ball and small ball.

    Count your blessings. Men, not machines.

    Also, remember that this is a pitcher most of these guys haven’t faced before. You know that’s an Achilles heel with the Ys!

    Romine had nothing to do with Pettitte’s outing… He just didn’thave it tonight, it happens… No FB command, CB with little to no bite, inconsistent slider and a horrible cutter… That translates in to poor command and the strikes he throws end up in the middle of the plate or many hanging pitches.

    Everybody has a night off from time to time, even Pettitte… Don’t blame the kid

    “Romine had nothing to do with Pettitte’s outing”

    Sorry. I disagree, and I will continue to disagree. As I said, I’ve found that my instincts, even when they go against the more vociferous on this forum, have oftentimes been good ones. Pettitte will not throw the kid under the bus. It’s not his style.

    And it isn’t a personal affront to those of you who “love the kids” to have someone suggest that their newness might cause a problem as it would with anyone who is new.

    And since my way is not to “blame” ever, I am stating that Romine was a part of tonight’s problem. It’s a statement of fact, not of blame.

    My take will not change, so it’s unnecessary to repeat your position or for anyone else to try to tell me that Romine had nothing to do with it.

    In turn, I see no need to repeat my position. So consider our positions stated. As they say in a court of law – asked and answered. No need to repeat.

    Just continuing this conversation, this isn’t really a rebut to your position Trisha.

    I think it might be a combo of Andy not being on and Romine not being able to handle the pitch selection. Andy clearly didn’t have his best stuff tonight, tons of pitches leaking over the middle of the plate and his curve just didn’t have the big sweep we’re use to seeing.

    Oh well, we have to lose one once in a while.

    I think everybody can agree that Andy didn’t have it tonight. Romine definitely didn’t help.

  284. 4 NYY April 29th, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    I warned a couple nights ago not to expect the Asros to roll over. I said they have a lot of players we don’t know, pitchers included and now it’s coming to fruition at least for tonight.

    Someone said to consider the quality of the opposition. Well, there a MLB team and sometimes we don’t do so good against “newbies.”

  285. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    luis, you’re not piling on. And I do appreciate you being direct and not trying to get your jollies by taking little juvenile shots. Others could well learn from you.

    It is well known that Andy does not like to call his own games. He’s always liked his catchers to call the games. That certainly plays more into it than it if was a pitcher who was noted for calling his own games.

    But in any event, it’s of little moment. One bad game isn’t the end of the world, no matter what the combination of ingredients.

    I do remember being pilloried here several seasons back for suggesting something that “implicated” a forum favorite – only to be proven correct later on. So I’ve learned to pay attention to my instincts, no matter who tells me I’ve gotten it wrong, and no matter who lives to attempt to make pathetic jokes at my expense, believing they wrote the baseball manual and anything that flows from their lips should be treated as the elixir of the gods.

  286. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    When Youk comes back or Adams comes up I wouldn’t mind seeing Nix play SS for a couple of days. I think Nunez needs a couple of days off. He is probably putting a lot of pressure on himself but he also needs to adjust to how they are pitching to him. I think Girardi needs to show him that the job isn’t his if he doesn’t perform. Something about his play this season just doesn’t seem right.

    Back in the day, there were a few good soldiers we knew were gay, and they covered my back as I did theirs. GB7, bless his soul, would say the same. Who cares?

    —-

    Exactly, who cares?

    Similarly, I don’t see the need for anyone to announce their sexuality to the public. Do you see heterosexuals coming out and announcing their heterosexuality?

    ———–

    You really see no difference between the two? None?

    Have you heard a straight person talk about their struggle to tell their friends and family they were straight?

    If Jason Collins announced he was straight do you think there would be thousands of vile comments regarding that on the internet today?

    Would Chris Broussard have said he’s a sinner? Would former Knick, Larry Johnson have said that people like Jason Collins don’t belong in the NBA?

    What Jason Collins did today was historic and incredibly courageous. It should not be hand waved by a comment as ignorant as comparing this to a straight person announcing their sexuality.

    This is a landmark moment in sports and hopefully it gives other professional athletes and non athletes the like to come out.

    You are being a bad boy ;)

    What Jason Collins did today was historic and incredibly courageous. It should not be hand waved by a comment as ignorant as comparing this to a straight person announcing their sexuality.
    ///

    What do you expect from those two? One of them told me I was relating an experience I had observing women being condescended to in an office building as a tactic to “get laid.” This is the kind of mentality you’re trying to teach. I say, let them hole up (pun intended) in their preferred darkness; enlightenment isn’t happening.

    But good post.

    Another poster who I used to like reading a lot who has not been here in a long time was called
    “Pittsburg Yankee”.

    He/she was very knowledgeable.

    Think I’ll write a book detailing the History of LoHud.

    I’ll call it “The rise and fall of the Lohud Empire”.

    That’s inapropriate though since it hasn’t quite fallen yet. It sounds good though.

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

    How about the rebirth of the Lohud Empire?

    @JackCurryYES 5m

    Romine said he and Pettitte will talk tomorrow and smooth things out before they are paired up again.

    Andy Pettitte is a guy who rarely shakes and relies on the catcher to call the game, so putting him with a guy he has rarely if ever worked with probably wasn’t the best. Mix that in with Pettitte being off his game and it turned out to be a disaster. I’m sure if Andy were sharp it wouldnt have mattered.

    I think Tom’s intention was to approve the guy’s actions… Saying that many gay soldiers watched his back during Vietnam… His comment came as a response about something to do with teammates having to deal with this ( lockers, showers, stuff like that i think )

    Hmmm. This would go against my rule of betting against a Yankee but very tempting.

    Maybe we should also bet on Hughes finishing with a sub 3.75 ERA to ensure I at least break even :evil:

    I read that differently than you did. This isn’t the military, and maybe the guy feels a responsibility to his community and those that will follow him.

    IOW, “don’t ask/don’t tell” accomplishes nothing for him and his kind.

    “What Jason Collins did today was historic and incredibly courageous. ”

    Nothing close to “courageous” when nearly every single sports reporter (almost all huge lefties) are drooling all over themselves praising him for being the most PC thing of our time…homosexual.

    Words like “hero” and “courageous” have basically lost there meaning if they are applied to some guy who said publicly that he likes to have sexual relationships with other men.

    It’s an incredibly immoral and sinful time we live in.

    Not really. Go back and do some reading before you leap. There have now been about five posts from the one that have disqualified him in my book for being given any benefit of doubt. Once you make it clear, for the fifth or sixth time, that what you said can’t be mistaken, you forfeit the idea that you’re misunderstood or that you have a noble heart. The other one never had my good thoughts to begin with, so there was nowhere to fall from.

    You’re right about that. He’s also not bringing the front foot forward as much, which was more of a right-center and CF type of starting place. Not letting ball travel is part of that too, I think.

    This team has some real vulnerabilities. Wells’ surprising (at least to me) start has mitigated some of them, but back end of the lineup can be scary (as in scary bad).

    But to be fair, Not only Wells… Hafner has been a good addition, so has Youk when he is able to play ( this is the problem )… I have had a lot of fun watching this team in comparison to both 2011 and 2012 and to a certain degree 2010… But all in all, It will be the pitching for better or for worse

    JAP – Lookout man you’re cruising for a lecture from the resident Lohud Looney. The likes that G Love got last night. Man was that a pathetic cry for attention. Just an embarrassing post…
    Fortunately G Love has way to much class to respond to that trash.

    It must have been all those great “instincts” that wanted to throw all of our best starters in the pen. To treat Phelps so rudely last year like he stole someone’s first born. It’s DA INSTINCTS I tell ya. Now of course the pom poms are a waving for Phelps, go figure. :lol:

    Oh BTW I am referring to you Trixie, I wouldn’t want to be accused of not being direct enough for ya. Now go ahead and correct some grammar, bold and all caps a 500 word post about how miserable I am and then yell NEXT!!! That should about cover it. :wink:
