TIME/TV: 3:35 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Sunny and beautiful. Just getting ready for Anaheim.

UMPIRES: HP CB Bucknor, 1B Bill Miller, 2B Todd Tichenor, 3B Dale Scott

BUMMER BY THE BAY: The Yankees have lost six straight at the O.co Coliseum, their longest losing streak in Oakland since dropping six straight from in 2001. This losing streak comes on the heels of a franchise-record nine straight wins in Oakland. The Yankees have had only one longer losing streak in Oakland since the A’s relocated there in 1968 – losing 10 in-a-row from September 9, 1989 to May 1, 1991.

BROOM BREAKERS: The Yankees today will look to avoid being swept for the third time this season, and first time in a series of three-or-more games. They were swept in back-to-back two-game series against the Mets. They are 2-0 this season in the third game of a series when they dropped the first two contests (win vs. Boston on April 4 and at Detroit on April 7).

THE END: The Yankees are 12-10 in series finales this season. They are 6-5 in finales on the road, winning four of the last seven.

UPDATE, 3:41 p.m.: Double by Gardner, hard line out by Nix and two-run homer by Cano. Yankees hitting the ball hard and have a 2-0 lead to show for it.

UPDATE, 4:35 p.m.: Stewart definitely pulled the ball out of the glove, but I’m not entirely sure he didn’t make the tag with both his hand and his glove. Hard to tell. Gutsy call at the plate. Might have been right. I can’t tell based on that one replay.

UPDATE, 5:31 p.m.: Am I just watching the same game over and over again?

UPDATE, 5:43 p.m.: Yankees have had one runner in scoring position since the first inning.

UPDATE, 5:49 p.m.: Kuroda is through eight innings. He’s allowed two runs on two hits.

UPDATE, 6:18 p.m.: Another great escape for Robertson keeps the game tied at 2 and sends us into extra innings.

UPDATE, 6:56 p.m.: My goodness, this offense is just lost right now. Best chance to score went away when Cano was walked and Teixeira was plunked.

UPDATE, 8:44 p.m.: I don’t know what else to say except that I keep reworking my running story and I have yet to write it as if the Yankees are going to win. I’ll change it if they take a lead, but right now…

    Go Kuroda-san! Go Yanks!

    Actually watching on the big screen at our local Japanese restaurant, awaiting my order of hamachi kama and sashimi in support of Hiro (and in honor of Matsui’s birthday yesterday).

  3. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    There’s a very specific reason Jayson Nix is hitting in front of Robinson Cano: Joe Girardi wants to put someone who has hit lefties in front of someone who has not. In other words, he sees Nix as a deterrent to teams using left-handed relievers against both Brett Gardner and Cano.

    This might be a new low for Girardi.

    Hey Joe, what about the first 6 or 7 innings? They count, don’t ya know.

    Girardi is too consumed with chess games and trying to not be outdone by the other manager when he’s behind 5-2 in the 8th.

    Chip, Joe is playing the players who have been given the absurd contracts because his fate is tied to Cashman.
    ——————-

    He’s playing the guys he trusts. He has more faith in Youkilis because he’s got a track record than in Adams who does not. Has more faith in “Nixy and Stew” than in Romine and Brignac for the same reason.

  5. UnKnown June 13th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    For the love of all things please win today for Nick in SF #1 Yankee fan.

    I wouldn’t want all of these losses he has been witnessing in Oakland to take away from his funny bone.

    The A’s just presented Mariano Rivera with a surfboard and a check for his foundation for $10,042. They’re playing “Enter Sandman” for him.

    In fairness to Girardi (who I do think chokes when things don’t go well) given how poorly the team has hit, it might not make a difference who bats where.

  8. Wave Your Hat June 13th, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    Given that the Yanks are 9 games over .500 with the roster they have, I think Girardi is doing a fabulous job as manager. Manager of the Year so far in my book.

  9. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    Atta boy, Gardy.

  10. egk June 13th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Girardi playing for 1 run in the first inning? What an idiot.

  11. UnKnown June 13th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Gardner sets the table again. Score him and hold on for dear life.

  12. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Girardi might do some things well, but hitting Nix #2 vs rhp is just plain stupid. Nothing in his track record suggests he should hit there, even if it works today. Nix does not hit rhp.

  13. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    Glad to see KLong is going to actually give Robi some lefty action by pitching to him, but… weird solution, is that all you got?

    13th home run give up by Parker this year. Must be just behind CC.

    Keep the vibe going, big and hairy!

  21. egk June 13th, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    A home run makes Girardi not look so stupid for trying to sacrifice bunt in the first inning.

  22. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    I guess not.

  23. UnKnown June 13th, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    Well hey 2 runs is good. We finally got that early lead we all wanted to see. Kuroda can relax a bit and do his thing. Let’s get the tide turned today with the help of MO’s new surfboard, some offense, and Kuroda being Kuroda.

    I’ve been following the LoHud for many years, but always busy during the day/evening. I catch up at night when the blog is pretty inactive. Have the day off so I think I’m gonna pipe in today.

    Vin Scully is taking over the Dodgers twitter account next Wednesday when the Dodgers play at Yankee stadium. He will be live tweeting throughout the game.

    Beautiful day at the ballpatk and I scored a freebie ticket field level flush with 3rd base. Yanks are winning today, clearly. From where I’m sitting it looks like we even have a lead; could be a mirage.

    if Wells played a full 81 game home schedule at Oakland, he may hit .050

  44. comnsnse June 13th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Chip@3:35, no he is not playing vets over anyone who might be productive because if kids can get the job done while over the hill vets can not he keeps his job!

    He has been saddled with an impossible job but will still play whomever can hit, field, run and pitch.

    Otherwise he’ll be looking for work somewhere else next year.

  45. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    I’m on the A’s side about 15 rows back, too far to get in Tex’s grill, but will try to upgrade in a couple innings. Enjoying courtesy beer with my benefactors.

    Going to be awesome seeing El Duque out there. Always liked Andy Phillips too. Remember some clutch hits from him. Flaherty can go away.

  58. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    BTW, if anyone is still in denial about how bad the NYY offense has been, the over/under on Yankee runs was 3.5 today against a 4.79 ERA pitcher. Think about that. Typical Yankee o/u would be 4.5-5.5 or so.

    This is Nix v. RHP this year:

    .224 .262 .302 .564

    Their offensive options are admittedly limited, but that’s really bad.

  70. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    The Waverly Diner was always there, as far as I remember. There was a parking lot on the SE corner of Waverly/6th (my block), long since developed.

    Rich, small world. I miss many things about living in the Village, but others not so much. Ben, I used to often walk from E. 9th to my job on Prince Street. Seems like a long time ago… Is the Waverly Diner gone?

    At least Matsui will be at NYS on July 28th. Po probably doesn’t want to consider himself an OT’er just yet. Last OT game I went to Bernie played “Take me out to the Ball game” and Torre returned to NYS.

  86. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    http://hardballtalk.nbcsports......r-you-get/

    Good article on the closer and how its kind of pointless.

    “I was really interested in knowing if closers have made it more likely that teams will win games they lead going into the ninth. And the answer, I believe, is no.

    Now, wait a minute: You could argue that the game is constantly evolving and that teams need to use closers JUST TO MAINTAIN the status quo. That is to say, if teams tried to stretch their starters like they did in the 1970s or use their bullpen the way managers did in the 1960s, teams might come back in the ninth inning a much higher percentage of the time. Maybe the comeback rate would be 10% instead of 5%. I don’t know. It’s a great topic of conversation and somewhat beyond my own meager analytical skills.

    But I just find it fascinating that no matter how much everyone tries to fiddle with the last inning of a game — closers, match-ups, specialists, pinch-hitters, whatever else — those overall ninth-inning win percentages just do not move.”

  87. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Sterling had that as being a HR, then out at the plate, then safe.

    Just another day at the office.

  88. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Didn’t he tag him?

  89. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Well Stewart if you had the ball in your glove they may have called him out.

  90. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    would have been big to quelch the rally, knowing that our middle inning fade away has already started, but good teams have their way with us, even our best guys

  91. njsketch June 13th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    let’s be honest, how many people think the offense will bail out our pitcher today?

  92. tbone1570 June 13th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    More “superior defense” by Stewie!

  93. Niblick June 13th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Looks like Kuroda has finally succombed to the suck disease that has permeated the rest of the team.

  94. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    could have been worse if not for the caught stealing

  95. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    Stewart absolutely has to make that play, the 2 relay throws were perfect and he was out by 15. Just a horrific way to give up the lead. Kuroda needs to keep the ball below the belt alot more than he has so far.

  96. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    So maybe Romine should start because of his defense?

  97. UnKnown June 13th, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm
    ———

    :lol: Classic that is exactly how he called it. He is really bad.

    I was really hoping CB would give us another break there like last night. Guess not. That is a really poor play by Stew after everyone made great plays on the relay.

    Have score more. C’mon, we need this win!

  98. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    2 DPs in 4 innings…just not good enough. Who other than Gardner and Cano do you really believe will reach base on this team right now?

  99. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    does any team leave their leadoff hitter on first base more than we do?

  100. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    As bad as this offense is, every lead we get, the pitcher has to hold it. Kuroda cannot be blowing the 2-0 lead there, because this offense might never get it back.

    It sucks to put pressure on the pitching like this, but it’s the truth with how bad the offense is.

  101. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    It’s the beer + sun talking, but I will say yes, the offense will break through and give the Yanks the lead in time to see Mo close out his final visit to Yankee Stadium West.

  102. mick June 13th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Youkilis must be a)hurt,B)out of shape,c)overweight,d)not a true yankee,e)all of the above.

  103. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Stewart’s defense is like a catcher at the end of his career. Almost like how Posada was at the end. Mistakes, blunders and just all around sloppy play. But he is one of Girardi’s boys so it doesn’t matter how bad his defense is. I honestly though that Stewart was 37 or 38 with how his defense has looked. I was shocked that he is much younger.

  104. Niblick June 13th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Jorge was never as bad as Stewie. You could have cut off Jorge’s arms and legs and he still wouldn’t be as bad as Stewie.

    QFT

    Stewart throws out alot of baserunners but he just seems to lose focus or concentration too much. There are simple plays that he should make in his sleep that he botches regularly

  106. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    I am disgusted with Vernon Wells’ at bats since May 1st

  107. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    Wells has no chance right now. He is just up there trying to make contact because he is obviously not seeing the ball at all. They really can’t send him out there everyday anymore.

  108. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Why doesn’t Ichiro ever steal a base?

  109. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Why doesn’t Ichiro ever steal a base?

    He has never been a big time stealer, he only goes in around 10% of his opportunities. Gardner goes in 25%, a guy like Coco Crisp in ~30%. He was just an efficient stealer who happened to be standing on first a lot due to his ability to hit singles.

  110. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    “Why is Ichiro batting 8th?” asks random A’s fan in next row.

    I burst into tears and return to my beer.

  111. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    He has never been a big time stealer
    ————-

    When he was with the Mariners it seemed like he was always running against the Yanks. Every time he got on the pitcher and catcher were terrified. I guess he used to pick his spots and now because he is older he is saving his energy for defense.

  112. moctezuma June 13th, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Why doesn’t Phil Hughes learn to throw a split finger fastball? Wouldn’t that compliment his high heat?

  113. G. Love June 13th, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    I’m thinking of starting a charity called “Cookies For Texy”. We’ll try to get opposing pitchers to take it easy on him because he tries real hard.

    I imagine the Yankee locker room is like that scene in Being John Malkovich when Malkovich enters his own portal and sees all the people looking like himself who can only say the word “Malkovich”, except in the Yankees case they all walk around say “Home Run?” “Home run!” “Home Run.” instead of actual words to one another.

    Kuroda has bailed this team out many times. Get some runs for crying out loud.

    When he was with the Mariners it seemed like he was always running against the Yanks. Every time he got on the pitcher and catcher were terrified. I guess he used to pick his spots and now because he is older he is saving his energy for defense.

    He just had a lot of opportunity. 700 PA every year, on a crappy offense that doesnt put guys on base infront of him, and he almost always ends up at 1st. Lots of chances to go. He may have stolen more often against the Yankees due to their catchers or something, but its probably just imagination.

    Ellsbury steals 25% of the time he has an opportunity.

  121. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    Teix can’t lay off anything.

  122. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    Lefty Tex vs. a changeup is not a fair fight.

    And another hard hit ball right at someone, even when they make good contact they cant keep a rally going

  123. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    “Teix can’t lay off anything.”

    He’s probably cheating, trying to speed up his bat.

  124. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    After Tex K’d there I yelled “Juice Press!!! at the top of my lungs.

  125. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    They screwed up big time by not giving Tex enough minor league AB’s. He was big with his homers initially but he needed more time.

    The yanks are done scoring today. Poor Kuroda.

  137. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    I know that girardi wants to give wells every chance but his at bats aren’t even competitive. He just swings at the first fastball he sees. They need to make a switch.

    I still think this team would be winning more if Tex wasn’t on the roster and on the DL.

    I have no way to prove that, mind you, but it helps when I blame him for destroying the Yankees with his hero swing, contract and rapido decline into a platoon player.

    Ah yes, 4-7 0 for 14! Pathetic, more so Teixiera’s continued ineptness.

    Standard fare for the geriatric group.

    ROI approximately 50mm. plus not counting Ichiro!

    Garnish Cashman’s paycheck!

  226. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    Rich – I cannot argue with that lol. I feel badly I get such a strong visceral reaction when he steps in the box.

  227. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    or catch Mo

  228. egk June 13th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    Stewie can’t doie and do think he’s one of the better hitters for average so far. It’s to laugh.

  229. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    When do you pinch hit Overbay if not there?

    but then romine would have to come into the game and then he may have to bat <– Girardis thought process

    ———–

    You're probably totally right and that gives me the sads.

    Anyway, how many games should Kuroda have won this year that he didn't? There are at least 3 that come to mind..

  230. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    At least Cano is up next inning. Let’s get there, please.

  231. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    This lineup is absolutely brutal.

    Oh great here comes Logan.

  232. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    This would be the 6th consecutive loss for me here and it’s a walk-off situation and Boone Logan is pitching. Got it.

  233. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    Overbay should be used to pinch hit otherwise why is he on the roster.

  234. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    I think I get it.

    If Joe put in Overbay, the A’s would have bought in a lefthanded pitcher, and he would pitch the next inning (if necessary), foiling his plan to have Nix prevent them bringing in a lefty to face Gardner and Cano!

  235. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    Logan against a righty is always dangerous

  236. tucker June 13th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    Nick, maybe take the Fruitvale exit on your next BART trip to the Coliseum. You know, mix it up a little …

  237. Colorado Pinstripes June 13th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    think I get it.

    If Joe put in Overbay, the A’s would have bought in a lefthanded pitcher, and he would pitch the next inning (if necessary), foiling his plan to have Nix prevent them bringing in a lefty to face Gardner and Cano!

    @DanBarbarisi

    Yankees report that Derek Jeter was cleared to begin running + baseball activities by his Dr, Robert Anderson, this afternoon.

    —-

    Hooray!!

  239. bruceb June 13th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    The dilemma: Why should I bother worrying about whether we concede a run when I spend all my time worrying about whether we can score run?

  240. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Pitching keeping them in…

    Any conspiracy theorists wanna come on a ride with me where we discuss how the Yankees probably leaked the Jeter news in the middle of this game because they know how awful this is and how much we need a morale boost? :lol:

  241. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Jeter cleared

  242. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Great news on Jeet! And agree Nick needs to change it up. I did my part.

    (

  243. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Release the Jete.

  244. Locke June 13th, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Anybody else watching on YES?

    “I don’t understand this move, why waste another pitcher? Boone Logan is just as good against right handers.”

    That’s definitely not true.

  245. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    Shame, I don’t doubt it.

  246. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    What’s Alex doing in terms of baseball activities?

  247. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    Buy bye. Runs, please.

  248. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    to save time when logan is pitching, start the at bat with a 3-2 count.

  249. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    Tucker, I took BART on Tuesday night, I drove last night… maybe today I should’ve hitched a ride on International Blvd. I could’ve made some new friends on the way.

  250. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    I’m predicting a run scored for the NYY this inning.

  251. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get. Him. Home.

  252. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    Here we go!!

  253. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    :x Gardner :x

    Score a run

  254. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    If the Yankees don’t score is Warren coming in?

  255. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    What a craptastic throw.. I will totally take a win based on that play.

  256. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Quick victory vow: I will dine at a roach coach on Inty if we win this game!

  257. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    It seems Joe’s plan did not stop the A’s from bringing in a lefty.

    But so far the lefty is working for us.

  258. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    they will walk cano now.

  259. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Walk Cano to bring up Mr. 170?

  260. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Score score score score the run

  261. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Its time Robbie…

  262. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Probably going to come down to Tex…

  263. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Probably the smart move for the A’s.

    Get mad about it Tex!!

  264. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    All tex has to do is hit a flyball

  265. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    It’s gonna be Tex, folks. Before I get sunstroke.

  266. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    Gardner will score on pretty much anything to the outfield. Just get it out there.

  267. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    they will tease tex with pitch to the outside.

  268. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    Can you muster up a flyball, Teix?

  269. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    I think Tex will come through in some way.

  270. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    Righty

  273. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    Surprised they left a lefty in to face him…

  274. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    Atta boy, Tex, take one for the team..

  275. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 6:49 pm

  277. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    Please for the love of Mo do not roll over one

  279. G. Love June 13th, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    lean into one

  280. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Not a K.

  286. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Wonder why no Overbay for Hafner here?

  287. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 6:52 pm

  311. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    pls send down adams. he is useless for girardi.

  312. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    I’m sure if that ball doesn’t hit Gardner he’s going all the way

  313. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    If hafner cant hit he is worthless. The others at least play the field.

  314. I Am Winning June 13th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    I wish my work union was as strong as the baseball union. Now matter how badly they screw up, they all get to keep their job, and millions of dollars. Not that the threat of losing your job and pay would necessarily make them perform at a higher level, but it sure would be nice to get rid of some of these large contracts for cheaper, yet much better players.

  315. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    Warren should be sharp.

  316. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    This lineup is absolutely terrible. Hafner and Youk have been awful.

  317. sunny615 June 13th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    Adam Warren… game over now.

  318. Dill Pickler June 13th, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    In their last 18 games, this team (I hesitate to call them the Yankees) has scored in one or fewer innings 10 times.

  319. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

  321. bruceb June 13th, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    This is like watching the Mets vs. Marlins all over again. Have we really stooped that low?

  322. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    I would release Hafner. If he doesn’t hit a home run he is an easy out. Adams or Musty should play 3rd play and limit Youks playing time. Those guys are killing them in the middle of the order.

  323. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    this is really hard to believe…absolutely absolutely terrible awful statistically improbable

  326. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    Cb is an awful ump

  328. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    This has a’s walk off written all over it. Least I took this off to take a nap. I’m hoping to get a update later that we maybe won.

    I personally don’t know how we can even stay a playoff contender throughout the summer with this offense.

  329. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    they should use the shootout in baseball

  330. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    Nice. One more.

  331. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    I don’t care if Jeter comes back on one leg, it’ll be better to watch him than most of the guys we’re throwing out there.

    Hehehehehehe…. silly refs.

  339. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    I’ll let Jete come back on one leg and handpick to ex-girlfriends to hit also

  340. deltajoe June 13th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

  341. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    “I don’t care if Jeter comes back on one leg, it’ll be better to watch him than most of the guys we’re throwing out there.”

    If he does come back on one leg, you dh him, leave Nix at short and stick Hafner on the bench. Jayson Nix has been our 3rd best hitter for more than 3 weeks now. That tells you pretty much all you need to know.

  345. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Nice job, Warren! Pitching once every 15 days can’t be easy.

  346. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:04 pm

  348. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    Not having another outfielder on the roster is killing them. Wells should be pinch hit for here

  349. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    hero swing by wells.

  350. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    You can’t keep giving up 3-4 at bats a game from Wells. It looks like he is blindfolded up there. Just terrible at bats.

  351. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    The Wells situation v. RHP is intolerable.

  352. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Stewie will get a hit

  355. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Hafter, Youkilis, and Wells are at .224, .225, .233 respectively. That just cannot be acceptable. I don’t care what the other options are. Try anything. Yankees should be humiliated at the lineups they are trotting out there.

  356. egk June 13th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Wells is pretty much hitting his way in to an outright release.

  357. chicken_stanley June 13th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    no pinch run too?

  362. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Nix has hit the ball hard all series long, lets do this baby!!

  363. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Gardner being intentionally walked, this speaks volumes about the rest of the Yankee lineup right now

  364. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Nix has the best chance here. The middle of the order would never come through if they were up.

  365. Dill Pickler June 13th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Vernon’s last xbh was in May. A double. He has one double and 6 singles since May 22. That’s more than 70 at-bats,

  366. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    C’mon, Nixie!

  367. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    The bats are just waiting for the A’s to score a run. It’s hard to believe this group can be this bad.

  377. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    Unfortunately Nix has a .347 BABIP so he is probably due for a bit of a correction. And it’s not like he can fall back on his power after that happens because it is completely non existent

  378. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Red Sox fan caught Lowrie foul ball, booed lustily, then gives ball to A’s fan kid, gets cheered. #livereportage

    Good job, Adam. Least we got Robi batting in this inning.

  380. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    and now that they are tired of pulling the ball, they will be late and accidental opposite hit will happen.

  381. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    “Least we got Robi batting in this inning.”

    True, but they’d be crazy to throw him a strike.

  382. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Rich true but maybe they’ll get sloppy

  383. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Robi!!!

  384. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    If we don’t score now, we don’t deserve to win.

  385. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    At least Cano has hammered the ball 4 times today

  386. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    adams pls.

  387. Dill Pickler June 13th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Bunt, Tex! Bunt!

  388. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    I actually think this is smart by them.

  389. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Let’s do it now.

  390. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Here we go? Please?

  391. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    A productive at bat for Teix.

  392. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    It’s April, Haf…

  393. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Did Adams already leave for Anaheim?

  394. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I would pinch hit Adams for Hafner. But girardi doesn’t have the balls to do it.

  395. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    CB Bucknor doing all he can to help us lol…cmon Travis hit one hard

  396. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Hafner isn’t going to get anything to pull

  397. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    I don’t understand not bringing in Adams to bunt.

  398. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    That should have been taken to LF.

  399. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Adams

  400. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Great at bat. Girardi has to pinch for Wells. He already gave up 5 at bats you can’t give up another one.

  401. mick June 13th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    O ver bay

  402. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    girardi is not using the binder anymore instead using I could be lucky decision.

  403. tomingeorgia June 13th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Now for Overbay?

  404. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Same victory vow, Youk. Do it.

  405. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

  406. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

  413. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    “girardi is not using the binder anymore instead using I could be lucky decision.”

    He is caught in a time warp, thinking these are the same hitters they were 5 years ago.

    If one of them gets lucky, it will reinforce in his mind that he has been right all along.

  414. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    That was awful. Mood is volatile and my phone is dying.

  415. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Another horrific at bat by the middle order

  416. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

  417. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    this is just horrible……
    when is girardi going to lose it on these guys?

  421. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    GOOD LORD!

  422. deltajoe June 13th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    Wells isn’t much better He sucks

  423. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the yanks release wells very soon. He has nothing left.

  424. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    I mean that was just not even a contest. Wells has absolutely no chance of making good contact, he has to go

  425. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    Girardi can pinch hit for Alex but can’t for these guys?

  426. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Enough is enough.

    As good as Girardi is with the pen, his management of the offense, even given his limited options, SUCKS!

  427. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    this lineup is the laughingstock of baseball

    I actually think this one gam, win or lose, will make guys get cut…not ph for, but yes cut

  428. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    You guys shouldn’t even waste your time watching this garbage. It will only make it more frustrating when the a’s win this eventually.

  429. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Youk and Wells should be released. Why are Adams and overbay still on the bench and not pinch hitting?

  430. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    This is just hard to watch.
    We know the pitching isn’t going to hold up forever.

  431. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    outside pitch , outside pitch and more outside pitch. lean on the plate to get to them.

  432. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    good lord give us a walkoff HR so we don’t have to delude ourselves for another 45 minutes

  433. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    I have to agree on being surprised Overbay didnt hit for Wells other than Girardi’s concern over defense.

  434. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    A’s just score a run already.

    I guess girardi went to sleep. He isn’t even trying to win this game.

  435. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Cashman will have his scouts at the Old Timers game

  436. mick June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    hes afraid to put adams or overbay in the field
    they have one pitcher left a lefty and he had to pinch hit to get him in
    but no hes afraid….

  437. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Crap

  438. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Maybe a fight will ignite this team.

  439. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Damn, Chavez looked great there. Delivery was smooth, hit 95 and pretty sharp curve also. I’m surprised he’s struggled as much as he has in his career. Really no explanation when you look at his stuff. Has to be something mental/emotional

  440. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Yanks should just say screw it with the 11 mil owed to wells and just cut him. Andruw jones was better than this last year.

  441. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    bunt dunk over

  442. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Nice.

  443. astrocityfan June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    I’m not a negative person but this game has to be a wake up call. There have to be changes made. Win or lose something’s got to give

  444. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    They gave us a bonus round of dot racing, so there’s that.

    And then a free out on top of it.

  445. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    AAA Morris is upset…who cares.

  446. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    If Cano was giving signs, he was doing a really bad job.
    They all struck out.

  448. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    we’ll sign Young when the A’s cut him

  449. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    Two more

  450. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    Lineup is filled with washed up players past their prime. They need an injection of youth and more dynamic players in general. It’s really bleak right now.

  451. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    “I’m not a negative person but this game has to be a wake up call.”

    Only a dead person wouldn’t be negative about this offense.

    Warren may have had the runner at 1st.

  454. mick June 13th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    what was cano hot about?

  455. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    “I wouldn’t be opposed to someone punching someone else right now.”

    It will be interesting if Cano gets up again with no one on.

  456. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    I don’t wanna jinx the kid but Warren’s been pitching well here…

  457. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    “I wouldn’t be opposed to someone punching someone else right now.”

    Maybe Cano can deck Wells, Hafner, and Youkilis?

  458. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    I would not be oppose if someone punch girardi.

  459. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    sign him too

  460. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    K!! Uno Mas

  463. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    someone should punch K-Long

  464. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    I think they accused Cano of relaying signs and he got pissed at the accusation.

  465. comnsnse June 13th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Stiff report, batters four through seven are now 0 for 20, which is just about a 7 inning no hitter.

    And what a perfect summary of the Stiff Brigade!

  466. mick June 13th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    im telling you girardi is looking to kill wells or youk so he can bring up musty
    day game after a night game and he plays them 13 innings?
    let the dl make your decision joe….

  467. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Lineup is filled with washed up players past their prime. They need an injection of youth and more dynamic players in general. It’s really bleak right now.
    ___

    If Murphy does well over the next couple weeks in AAA, I say bring him up and send Romine back. I agree about the youth. Adams can’t be worse than this, Musty, hell even Tyler Austin or Heathcott cannot be worse than Wells. Hafner is useless if he cant hit. Overbay is useless if he doesn’t get to play.

  468. NYY fan in NH June 13th, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    this may be the worst Yankee offense i’ve seen in the last 15 years.

  469. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    One more time

  470. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    overbay, adams, brignac and romine should look for girardi and punch him.

  471. mick June 13th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    send warren down after this game bring up musty

  472. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    last 15 years is easy to say

    more like ever

  473. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    The pitching staff must think this lineup is absolutely awful

  474. comnsnse June 13th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Batters 4-7 check those paychecks, if this were a major corporation they be in bankruptcy!

    Nice job, Adam. Only bright spot so far.

  477. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Cashman embarrassed that he can’t get his cellphone to stop ringing while he is in an Oakland back alley with his pants down

  478. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    can we skip the Yankees batting and put 3 ks.

  479. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Go Ich

  480. tucker June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    “this may be the worst Yankee offense i’ve seen in the last 15 years.”

    Try 20 years — the stats support that statement. Not that this is a surprise. It was largely predicted here …

  481. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    can’t wait for the cap tipping

  482. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Yeah, this is Stump Merrill bad.

  483. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    don’t look now – Ichi getting hot

  484. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Atta Ichi!!!

  485. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Maybe the middle of the order should be Gardner, Nix and Stewart? They should just release the garbage already.

    Put Neal in LF, Adams at 3rd base and Overbay at DH

  486. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Bunting?

  487. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    The only struggling player that we have any use for right now is Ichiro, because he can still field and goes through good stretches.

    If I was Cash, I would do something very drastic….
    Release Youkilis, Wells, Hafner and Overbay and Brignac.

    Replace them with: Adams (already here), Musty, Neal, CoJo, and someone who can play SS.

  488. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    let ichi steal then bunt him over

  489. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    I don’t like the bunt at all. Have Ichiro steal 2nd base and then you have Gardner and Nix up. Not they will walk Gardner.

  490. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    That bunt was really stupid

  491. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Chavez must’ve had some adrenaline pumping last inning. First two FB’s this inning, 89 and 91. Also bad location on both pitches to Ichiro

  492. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    walk gardner again?

  493. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Rock n Roll Stew

  494. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Set up, at least theoretically.

  495. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    I would give anyone who is hitting well in AA or AAA a chance.
    They just can’t be worse than expensive guys going 0-30.

  496. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    walk Gardy
    Nix DP
    done

  497. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    we need another bloop

  498. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    Definitely.

  499. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    wait. Overbay will PH for Nix?
    Nix is actually not playing terrible.
    I would let Nix hit and save Overbay for Wells or Youkilis.

  500. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    I would give anyone who is hitting wel on this blog a chance

  501. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Gardner and Cano and pray for rain.

  502. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Come on, Overb.

  503. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Nix has been one of their best hitters in these spots. Weird move by Girardi.

  504. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Gardner has to be feeling beastly right now, IBB and totally pitched around that AB

  505. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    seriously – how long ago does Ovie’s TB HR seem? When all was right with the world

    Thats an unforgivable at bat from Overbay. Im begging you Robbie…

  511. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    WOW. we have had something like 20 men on base in extras and nada.

    Come on, RC.

  513. deltajoe June 13th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Walks Gartner on 4 pitches than Overbay goes after the first pitch

    just awful

  514. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Cano needs to settle down…

  515. JobaTipsHisCap June 13th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    They just suck. They aren’t expected to win behind this stinky lineup anyway.

  516. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Cano has to lay off that crap in the dirt

  517. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    I can’t believe he would have to do this, but Joe needs to start giving the take sign to hitters…
    Too many first pitch swings after walks….

    They didn’t even want a piece of Cano… lucky he even swung at the first pitch.

    My goodness…

  533. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:53 pm
    unreal. Another walk, another first pitch swing.
    ———–

    That was a good change.

    That was a bad swing.

  534. comnsnse June 13th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    What a spot for Cashman to be in, Girardi can only play the players he’s been given.

    And compounding it all is the money for each of these stiffs plus Ichiro.

    As for Romine and any young player they to are always in a bad spot with the Yankees because of the perception the team needs to make playoffs every year.

    Back ups and role players should be vets, but the problem here this year is they are all starters.

    Write the checks and write off the season and if we don’t have the talent at 3A you will know how bad the fix the organization is really in.

  535. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    and 35 men left on base tonight.
    10 men just in extras alone.

  536. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    I hoped TEx got HBP, but now I give up
    I’ll catch the rest of the game tomorrow on A’s Classics

    the A’s will win a 14 inning game with only 6 hits

  537. egk June 13th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    I’m beginning to think they were a better team with Overbay playing every day at 1st base.

  538. balotin June 13th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Pathetic.

  539. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Tex is so terrible.

  540. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Another great job by this offense. I would love for someone from the media to ask Cashman why Tex is trying to get his timing back in the majors. Cashman/Girardi really messed that up.

  541. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    35 was a joke but it feels that way

  542. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    How in a game this long, one of our hitters can’t hit a mistake off a tired bullpen and hit one into the gap? Same results every time

  543. rl15 June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Can the pitching staff sue the offense?

  544. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    I don’t see any sweeping changes coming but I think you have to consider dropping Hafner at least. If they’re committing to these other guys there is no room for a DH/PH that’s subject to stretches of cold spells.

  545. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    This is going to a terrible loss…

    Cashman has to make some changes to the offense…

  546. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Brignac in

  547. Dill Pickler June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    What a pathetic, pathetic lineup. I haven’t seen this many 0′s since I opened a box of Cheerios.

  548. Niblick June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    0-21. Pitiful.

  549. JobaTipsHisCap June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Tex’s contract might be worse than arods in the end.
    He should quit now.

  550. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    If it was up to me I’d show Youk and Wells the door.. $25 million.. my goodness..

  551. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    sorry 11 LOB since extras started.
    Warren won’t be able to hold this forever.

  552. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    4-7 are 0-21

  553. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    John Jaso the Rainmaker

  554. Dill Pickler June 13th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    The first step is admitting you have a problem. And in this case, that’s Vernon Wells. He has to be at least benched. 7 for his last 70, with one extra base hit.

  555. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    I bet the go-ahead run is a homer. One pitcher will get tired, make a mistake, and it’ll be over.

  556. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    I don’t know why I am saying this, but if they win, every vet should chip in to get Warren a new penthouse condo on CPW

  557. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    A’s should give the Yankees a big thank you when they eventually win this game. Since the yankee offense gift wrapped them this game.

  558. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Are they ever going to fix this website so when I refresh it brings me to the same spot I was at

  559. comnsnse June 13th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Uh, Tex’s timing has been in the crapper for three years!

    Except he always deposits his checks on time!

  560. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Bucknor is horrible.

  561. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Cashman should have a talk with Wells and tell him that they aren’t going to play him anymore. Hopefully get him to retire a year early.

  562. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    O’s doing their part, btu not for us

  563. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Warren doing an absolutely fantastic job.

  564. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Another great inning by Adam

  565. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    and 35 men left on base tonight.
    =======================
    thats almost 3 per inning, is tha even possible////

  566. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Mike Francessa hearts Tex

  567. rm June 13th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Warren has been great especially considering he hasnt pitched in two weeks

  568. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    which position player will pitch first?

  569. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    mick i said 35 was a joke.
    but 11 in extras alone was correct.

  570. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    yankees have men on every inning and do nothing
    Oakland is going to hit a walk off HR.
    Watch.

  571. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    it is cruel and unusual punishment to throw youk and wells out there this long they are old men..

  572. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    Tex and Hafner can’t lay off those high pitches

  573. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    15th inning and it’s still not longer than a typical Yanks/Red Sox gam

  574. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    hafner should be shot

  575. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    0-22

  576. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    That’s not a strike but Hafner has looked totally lost

  577. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    0-7. garbage

  578. Nick in SF June 13th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Youk… restaurant… victory vow… kill me.

  579. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    ……..

  580. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    nick..go…look…for….Old…School.

  581. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    0-6. also garbage

  582. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    Hafner and Wells should be released. Youk is a bench player at this point.

  583. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    0-23 with 3bb

  584. tbone1570 June 13th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    3 OT’s last night and now at least 15 innings????

    No rest for the weary!

  585. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Yanks wasted 13 mil on youk when he’s been garbage. There has to be a better replacement out there for arod than youk.

  586. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Does Wells have any idea what he is swinging at? It looks like he is just punching at the ball to make contact.

  587. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    warren cant pitch til next tues, send him down, bring up Musty, release somebody

  588. Benny Blanco June 13th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    i can’t believe vernon swung at that?

  589. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    *sigh*

  590. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Wells swings at everything short of 3 feet off the plate.

  591. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    The bullpen will be left in shreds for the Angels series.

    Oh look Wells hacks at 2 more pitches out of the zone & watches strike 3. Sickening

  592. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    except that

  593. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    This is beyond ridiculous, it’s embarrassing…

  594. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    0-24

  595. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    youk to dl after game, his back is shot…wells to bench, play overbay…bad karma sitting him.

  596. deltajoe June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Tex, Hefner, Youk and Wells 0-25

  597. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Wells might legitimately be on the cusp of playing in Japan.

  598. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Amazing they haven’t scored since the first. They can’t even hit one mistake into the seats.

  599. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    I mean.. someone has to get a hit at some point, right?

  600. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    0-7 #5
    0-6 #6
    0-7 #7

  601. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    girardi… pls concede the game.

  602. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Sad I actually thought wells could be a nice piece in this lineup everyday after his good April. So much for them saying his bat speed was better in spring training.

  603. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    0-24 with 3bb

  604. Niblick June 13th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Tex, Hafner, Youk, Wells: 0-24.

    Something has got to give. Hopefully it’s the A’s giving and the Yanks getting…

  606. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Eventually the A’s will score a run.

    The Yankees “offense” definitely isn’t scoring another run.

  607. chicken_stanley June 13th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Close to 5 hours gone that I’ll never get back… now that I’m at mid life (if I live to be 90) I’ve started noticing these type things. Lol

  608. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Warren has done a good job.. if he takes the loss I won’t give a lick. He’s done really well today.

    Baseball is a cruel game. Pitchers found the weakness and chewed him up.

  610. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    they’re probably tired also

  611. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    An outfielder has to meet the team in Anaheim. They can’t play anymore without an extra outfielder and Wells in there everyday. At this point it’s just insane.

  612. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    The a’s are more than likely going to be the ones to hit a mistake off our bullpen, then us doing it to them.

    Yanks have to many guys in the lineup who should be cut, tex should still be rehabbing, and cano doesn’t get anything good to hit because he’s the only good player on the team.

  613. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Thought he was out.. let’s see that again..

  614. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Looked out

  615. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Aw I think he got him… ugh.

  616. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    He was out surely???!!

  617. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Another great job by Stewart..

    The ump wants this game to end..he was out at 2nd base.

  618. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Looks out on replay

  619. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    out

  620. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    One things for sure
    There are a lot of interventions in order

  621. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Drat.

  622. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    The sad thing is this doesn’t bother the front office one bit

  623. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Of course Girardi doesn’t even argue

  624. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Can do, Adam

  625. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    this was inevitable….

  626. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Game most likely ends here. Only so much the pitching can do.

  627. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Wow.. nice play!!

  628. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Great play Stew.

  629. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    he’s out

  630. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    OH STEWIE

  631. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Wow, what a play that was! He got battered

  632. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Wow, check on Stewie.

  633. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    I’m too old to live thru another down period

  634. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Wow. Maybe it’s time for Romine to catch.

  635. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Helluva throw and gutsy by Stew

  636. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Hating on Wells all day but that was a good throw.

    Hope Stewie survived.

  637. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    One more

  638. tbone1570 June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    @eboland11

    Jeter might complete his rehab and be available to pinch hit by the end of this on

    ——————————————————–

    if only

  639. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    That’s the kinda play that should pump your guys up.. let’s get this win.

  640. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Now they gotta get out of this inning

  641. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    He definitely thought that was out #3

  642. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    I feel like this guy is going to get a hit

  643. comnsnse June 13th, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    Denial has reached epidemic proportions, “Tex is rehabbing”!

    Really, then let him go to the minors and I’ll wager he won’t do any better because it’s now a head case!

    What happened to that shrink that used to work for some of the teams?

  644. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    Warren is definitely getting tired

  645. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    YES!!!

    WARREN has been incredible!

  646. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    OH YEAH

  647. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

  649. Bucky June 13th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    What a performance by Warren.

  650. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Romine should take over for Stewart. He might feel ok but I could see his defense going in the toilet.

  651. rm June 13th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    What a job by Warren Wells and Stewie. Time to win this game

  652. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    Warren is the MVP here……
    Win or lose, the ‘stars’ should buy him something very nice.

  653. I Am Winning June 13th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    2 runs in 15 innings? GREAT job by the pitching. Kuroda and Warren are the Yankees MVP of the game regardless win or lose.

    2 runs in 15 innings for the offense? Terrible job all around.

  654. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    we might think back on this game someday and say wow what a ride its been….

    I’m assuming Romine, Reid, Overbay and Adams are in tomorrow?

  657. comnsnse June 13th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    News flash, the Yankees have announced that batters 4 through 7 will play for the Cashman squad in the Old Timers game!

  658. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

  667. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    I feel bad for Warren. He must be tired by now and he knows that the offense stinks and won’t score a run.

  668. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Wonder how cc Phil and joba feel about all this

    Girardi has to go to Joba and maybe Mo soon. You can’t leave Warren out there forever.

  673. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    ?@Dlauraposada

    OMG 16 innings for the #Yankees what??? I feel for Stewart!

    Laura Posada’s got her head in the game..

  674. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    Warren’s a pretty darn good long reliever. He’s a couple rough outings but he can get the job done. Might be a decent trade chip.

  675. chicken_stanley June 13th, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    Awesome job by Warren… he’s gotta be smoked by now… over 70 pitches after a long layoff

  676. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    Mo is only good for 1 inning and Joba well might as well just forfeit

  677. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    @FeinsandNYDN

    Last time the Yankees played a game this long? June 1, 2003 in Detroit. Roger Clemens started, trying for his 300th win. Yankees won in 17.

  678. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    We’ve seen some really good breaking pitches by Warren..

    pitchers have the advantage

    —————————

    They usually do
    ————

    Yea but especially a day game after a night game and extra innings

  681. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Warren has to be gassed.

  682. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    One more out for Warren

  683. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    I thought girardi was about to concede

  684. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    YAY!!!!

    Get some runs and get Warren the win.

  685. rm June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Time to win it for Warren. He must be done now

  686. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Warren unfortunatly will probably give it up here since he’s probably gassed. Can’t blame him though, not his fault the offense is awful.

  687. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Alright Mr. 167 is going to end it here

  688. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Atta Adam, way to grind it.

  689. Hankflorida June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    The Bronx Bombers have become the hitless wonders as they only can win with pitching and defense.

  690. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    That’s a nice start from Warren, lol.

  691. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    They can’t ask for anymore from Warren. Time to get Jobameatballs up.

  692. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Haha… it’s definitely one of those games…

    Very nice job by Warren. Take him out of there, he has to be cooked.

  693. chicken_stanley June 13th, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Somebody sit Warren down and buy that man a beer

  694. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 13th, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    No need to panic because I’m not staying.

    But I do have the right to say

    GO YANKEES!!!

    Out.

  695. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    You have got to be kidding me………….

  696. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    warrens reward will be him sent down to scranton to make room for musty…

  697. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    LOL 4 pitches. It just gets worse.

  698. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    Warren is barely getting a break

  699. egk June 13th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    Boy, oh, boy did the offense make the pitcher work that inning. Whew!

  700. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    163

  701. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    I came upstairs and the inning is over already. That’s pathetic.

  702. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    That inning didn’t even last 3 minutes.

  703. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Productive top of the 17th there

  704. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    let hafner and youk pitch.

  705. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Can we get CC as a pinch hitter?

  706. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Claiborne

  707. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    Warren literally had less than 5 minutes to recover.
    His arm is going to fall off…

  708. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    Prestonnnnnnnnn

  709. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    You would think the offense would say to the pitching “you deserve this win, we will get it done for you”, yet it’s the same bs every inning and Girardi just continues and the front office continues to throw this awful offense out there.

  710. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    LOL 4 pitches. It just gets worse.

    —————–

    I don’t even know what to say..terrible ABs.

  711. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    I would have gone 1 more inning from Warren

  712. ac1 June 13th, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    No more warren?

  713. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Let’s see 18

  714. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Can we get CC as a pinch hitter?

    I’d go there.

  715. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    “I’d go there.”

    I would make him an everyday hitter.

  716. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Probably can get 3ip from Claiborne

  717. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    I’m all for a C. AB.

  718. bigdan22 June 13th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Neal not in Scranton’s lineup tonight. Batting .339 for the season.

  719. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    The cereal man with a hit

  720. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    Cashman in a Montreal strip club sees the game on and calls MLB network to ask why they’re playing a double header today

  721. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    double header

  722. bigdan22 June 13th, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Tex, Haffner, Youk, Wells. 0-25

  723. JobaTipsHisCap June 13th, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Coco crisp just got in the game and already has two more hits than……….

  727. tbone1570 June 13th, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Teixeira needs a better nickname, Mr 167 just won’t cut it.

    Since he’s going to be getting off the interstate shortly, how about Mark “Country Roads” Teixeira?

  728. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    This is an absurdist baseball game

  729. mick June 13th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    So Neal will be here tmw…no Musty.

  730. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    I think this team’s offense needs to relocate to Miami. Marlins and this offense deserve each other.

  731. chicken_stanley June 13th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    Cool… 3rd out. Another chance to see our big hairy monsters

  732. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    Even sucky hitters get hits. So I think they score here.

  733. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    Claiborne is awesome.

  734. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    Somebody has got to do something at some point..

  735. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    Maybe the middle of the order will show a pulse in this inning

  736. Jerkface June 13th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Well I managed to drive to and eat a fondue dinner and the game is still on now that I’m driving home

  737. rm June 13th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    I guess Nova will be coming up for Warren

  738. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    work the count. get a walk

  739. Pat M. June 13th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Maybe mickey mouse can hit. signed him up

  746. JobaTipsHisCap June 13th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Yanks win here

  747. Hassey June 13th, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    I think had retires after this game or at least goes back to the DL for “old and embarrassed”

  748. Bucky June 13th, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    This hurts.

  749. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Suddenly not being able to read a baseball for long stretches of time has to be one of the odder sports phenomenons.

  750. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Youk is broken tomorrow. This is a lot of innings for an old broken down guy.

  751. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    Seriously, Adams can’t be worse.

  752. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    This game is driving me into a state of zen…

  753. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    long thinking, at least they are pulling the baseball so they are good.

  754. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    Sucks that we Overbay only got one at bat. They need a fresh bat

  755. AndyFTM June 13th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    0 for 27

  756. bigdan22 June 13th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    0-27 with 12 Ks

  757. deltajoe June 13th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    0 for 28 now

  758. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    Wells should be on the plane to retirement tonight not the plane to Anaheim

  759. yankeefeminista June 13th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    Zzzzzzzzz.

  760. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    Ha, Sterling thinks the last three are in slumps.

  761. egk June 13th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Yayyyy. WELLS!!! Kept them from striking out the side!! Way to GOO VERNON!!

    This is the scariest teacup ride I’ve ever been on

  764. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    They essentially said it last night… they can’t string together enough hits and they can’t hit homeruns. This is pretty dire.

  765. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

  766. blake June 13th, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    It feels like they could play this game until the end of time and the Yankees would never score again….seriously jus put Joba in and end this

  767. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    If they get rid of this old, dead wood tonight, whatever happens, this game will have been worth it.

  771. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    If Girardi wants the game to end send Joba out there.

  772. blake June 13th, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    Adams can’t be worse than Youk and anybody can’t be worse than Vern at this point

  773. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    Do they send 2 pitchers down tomorrow?

  774. bigdan22 June 13th, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    Yes, 0-28 with 12 Ks. This is the worst Yankees offense in generations. Hopefully this game of futility will start the ball rolling. Clean out the ML roster. Promote the three hitters from AAA. And lets see where the chips fall.

    They really don’t have a lot of options. The only tradable piece is Phelps. And honestly, he really doesn’t have a track record to return much so it’s probably best to hold on to him. No prospects with any real value. An organization in crash mode.

  775. the vaunted chris June 13th, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    how terrible do the A’s feel.

  776. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    I think it’s obvious that the Yanks aren’t going to score another run tonight.

    So just send Joba out there to throw one of his fastball meatballs.

    “Do they send 2 pitchers down tomorrow?”

    How about sending 2 hitters that hit like pitcher down instead?

  780. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    they should send down all the position player except cano.

  781. fantasygame101 June 13th, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    include gardner not to be send down

  782. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    I just got a little excited for that hit

  783. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    How about sending 8 hitters down and give cano some protection. He will never get anything to hit this year, causing him to go into bad habits and long slumps because of the lineup around him.

  784. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    This is a very weird move..Mo before Joba?

    Mo coming in?

  787. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    Rivera?

  788. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    I think if the Yankees pull through this inning they’ve got the A’s on the ropes… how many pitches has this other guy thrown?

  789. jacksquat June 13th, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    0 for 28!

    Doesn’t seem possible…

  790. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Andy in the pen??! HOW ABOUT SCORE A RUN!!!!

  791. Tyler June 13th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Kev-

    71 pitches through 5.2…. he’s up there but the Yanks did a horrible job working him.

  792. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    i was wondering which of the starters would come in?

  793. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    I guess Joba isn’t available. Pettite ready to warm up? Ouch. Too bad this offense sucks or this game should have ended a long time ago.

    Doesn’t this moron know Rivera can’t pitch in tie games. Thanks Joe, you idiot

  803. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    I didn’t like this move. Most of us didn’t

  804. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    Wells is a moron. Mo was right there asking for the ball, he should be released tonight.

  805. Rich in NJ June 13th, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    So Wells blew it?

  806. Shame Spencer June 13th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Mo should just get the DP :)

  810. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    It seems like Mo has given up a ton of bloop hits this year. Almost a hit per inning this year. It seems like Mo never pitches good in these tied games.

  811. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Mo isn’t as effective in tie games. Hate using him up in this spot.

  819. egk June 13th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    lol bloop hits and the A’s sweep. Bloop hits were better than anything this Yankee offense was capable of

  820. theREALkevin June 13th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Should have just waived the white flag and brought in a position player to pitch

  821. Captain Clutch June 13th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Mo isn’t Mo like this year

  822. igotid88 June 13th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Rivera is great. But Joe was to quick with the hook of Claiborne

  823. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    1 and 5 against Oakland this year. Why should we care? The front office doesn’t

  824. RadioKev June 13th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Would Joba have been more effective?

  825. RYUKINGDOM June 13th, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    How about final farewell tours after the season

  826. Triple Short of a Cycle June 13th, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    Would Joba have been more effective?

    Why not stay put and not bring in anyone

  827. jlyanks85 June 13th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    This is going to be a long summer with this offense. They could be 7-8 games out in a hurry if this keeps up.

  828. bigdan22 June 13th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Thank God it’s over. Now we can start the real stuff. Blow up this roster. Don’t need to wait to be 10 games out like I predicted last week. Any fool like me saw this coming.

  829. the vaunted chris June 13th, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    lol at people not wanting your best reliever in a high leverage situation in extras. The problem isn’t that. It’s that his stuff isn’t as good

    Mo has a era under 2 and has been damn good. His stuff isn’t a issue at all. I just hate having mo in tie games on the road.

    This game was going 25 innings the way the offense was hitting. Mo actually did them a favor.

    Yanks only go to Disneyland next, which is their house of horrors. These west coast trips are season killers.

    if you didn’t bring Mo in, you were going to lose with your best reliever sitting on the bench. Pick your poison. Monday morning quarterbacks. Had they gone to Joba and he lost..everyone would be like “wtf man, why didn’t they use Mo”

    They can’t manufacture runs or hit home runs, so The Bronx Bombers are now in a nose dive ready to hit bottom and there must be a shake up. Release Overbay and send Adams down, and bring up Boesch to play against righties with Welles on the bench and Musty or Neal to play against Lefties.

    The worm will turn (somewhat) offensively. The pitching is very good. Even if they schlep along at 51-45 the rest of the way, that’s 88 wins and meaningful games in September and maybe October.

    Not awful for what ownership all but said would be a transitional year before they reload again.

    A bad few days in the Bay area. Let’s keep this in perspective.
