Hernandez vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., MY9

WEATHER: Been a beautiful day all day, and it’s turning into a gorgeous night.

UMPIRES: HP Greg Gibson, 1B Hunter Wendelstedt, 2B Alan Porter, 3B Mike Estabrook

EVERYDAY SHORTSTOP: Jayson Nix has hit safely in 12 of his last 14 games and 19 of his last 22 in which he’s had an at-bat. He has hit .305 (25-for-82) over a 23-game stretch since May 24 and had his season-high-tying seven-game hitting streak come to an end last night. It was his second seven-game streak of the season, one game shy of his career high. He is batting a team-high .304 (34-for-112) on the road this season with 13 runs and 11 RBI in 33 games away from Yankee Stadium.

ON THE RUN: Nix has not been caught in his last 13 stolen base attempts, the longest active streak among current Yankees according to Elias. Nix is 10-for-10 in 2013 and has not been caught stealing since July 18, 2012 against Toronto by J.P Arencibia.

PITCH, HIT AND RUN: Tomorrow morning, Yankee Stadium will host the New York Yankees Championship of the 2013 Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) program. A group of 24 kids, ages 7-14, will participate. The top three scores in each age and gender group out of all 30 MLB Team Championships will advance to the PHR National Finals held at Citi Field during MLB All-Star Week. More information about the program is available online at www.MLB.com/PHR.

UPDATE, 7:17 p.m.: Hey look, a bunt single by Gardner. He’s hitting .287 now.

UPDATE, 7:23 p.m.: Gardner, Ichiro and Cano have combined to produce a run. The trick, of course, is getting the other six Yankees hitters to do something. But, the bright side is obviously a 1-0 lead.

UPDATE, 7:43 p.m.: Zoilo Almonte is a hit machine!

UPDATE, 7:53 p.m.: Looks like Cano over-dived for that ball. It scooted away for an infield single and a tied game.

UPDATE, 8:00 p.m.: Leadoff bunt leads to a run in the first inning. Now two sac bunts have help bring in a run in the third. Yankees are up 2-1.

UPDATE, 8:15 p.m.: Luke Scott’s second hit of the day is an RBI single to tie the game in the fourth.

UPDATE, 8:19 p.m.: Alberto Gonzalez’s stay with the Yankees could be a short one. The Cubs have announced that they’ve traded Brett Lillibridge to the Yankees for a PTBNL or cash. I assume he’ll go to Triple-A initially, but he’s another light-hitting utility type. He can basically play anywhere.

UPDATE, 8:23 p.m.: Well that could have been a mess, but Phelps got the Rays top two hitters to fly out after letting their bottom three hitters reach base and load the bases.

UPDATE, 8:35 p.m.: Run-scoring double play ball actually brings in the go-ahead run. Not ideal, but the Yankees are in front, 3-2.

UPDATE, 8:37 p.m.: Adams given a single on that play, so that’s an RBI for a 4-2 lead.

UPDATE, 9:01 p.m.: Phelps pulled after a two-out single in the sixth. He didn’t always make it look easy, but he made some big pitches and allowed just two runs through 5.2 innings. Maybe not his best outing, but certainly not his worst. Here’s Logan to face Joyce.

UPDATE, 9:10 p.m.: Holy Zoilo! Curtain call for the rookie who’s now 3-for-3 with a solo homer in his first ever big league start. It’s a  5-2 Yankees lead.

    Expect a big game from Almonte tonite.

    Brainiac is Brignac

  2. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    Roberto Hernandez is Fausto Carmona.

  3. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    Ohhhh. Thanks mick!

    GO YANKS!!! GO PHELPSY!!! GO ZOLIO!!!

  4. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    @AndrewMarchand

    I don’t know yet if Nova is coming up to start or be in the bullpen. He is stretched out to start, Girardi said today.
    =================
    Why wouldn’t he? It is perfect timing again by the Baseball Gods.

  5. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Can’t wait for the 73rd season to start tonite!
    (every yankee game is like a season)

  6. austinmac June 21st, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Brignac is Braniac’s secret identity? I would have expected he could have figured out a way to hit. How about stop the uppercut?

  7. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    This is a useful twit:

    Sweeny Murti ? @YankeesWFAN

    Michael O’Neill (@PaulONeillYES’s nephew) off to a good start for A-Staten Island, 5 for 13 (.385).

  8. Hassey June 21st, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Good post about Nix

    You can’t help but want to like the guy, so it’s a great thing that no one buried him when he was dying in April and early May. This time, the wake worked

  9. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Put Nova in the Pen, and be prepared for the pissing and moaning outta him.

  10. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    mac-dont worry nobody will pick him up and he will be back with us just like alberto gonzalez.

  11. Hassey June 21st, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    How funny would it be if Paul one own son became the next Yankee great after jeter?

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    pkyankfan – what’s interesting is that female broadcasters/newscasters tend to automatically lower their voices because they feel it affords them more credibility. I guess they think it makes them sound more professional.

    We had a news anchor here and she sounded like a tough man when she spoke. Yet when she wasn’t on the news, her voice was about 2 levels higher, she had a southern accent (you’d never have known it to hear her do the news) – and she swore like a drunken sailor!

    :)

    Nova is going to shut them down on Old Timers Day and put Hughes on notice.

    MTU June 21st, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    It sure would go a long way though. Lee is a LHP too so the Yanks would see him. Buck & Duquette aren’t afraid of being wrong or judged. they go thru the players & find which ones stick. They give guys opportunities to suceed. Joe & Cash don’t want to fail. Buck & Duquette want to suceed. It is a nuiance, but it is a huge difference. Torre was a want to suceed guy. He came to the Yanks w/o a worry. He moved parts until it worked. He was loyal to the key cogs & built around them. ARod was his undoing along with Cash. But the concept works. Positives beget positives & vice versa.

  15. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Twilight gave Gardner a late start on that pop fly.

    he is Pauls nephew

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    How is Zolio’s arm? And what is Joe going to be calling him? Zoly?

  20. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Did Almonte see that big Zoo New York sign out in LF?

    That would be funny. The Yankees have been so unlucky with their spects you have to figure some things will go their way eventually.

  22. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    trish-the fights here have been few and far between, that’s what I call progress.

  23. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Phelps off to a good start. Must be the lucky haircut he just got.

  24. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    The only bad year I remember Zobrist having was the year I had him on my fantasy team.

    :mad:

  25. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    That would be funny.
    ===========
    It would be b/c it’s not his son…

  26. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    This lineup looks like the best they have thrown out this year.
    Last nights looked like the worst.

  27. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    I expect a blowout tonight.

  28. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Zobrist needs to hit HR’s coupled with SB’s to maintain his fantasy value.

  29. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    beautiful bunt..

  30. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    mick – interesting. Not that I wish him any ill, but we probably caught a break when Montero got sent down because if he was having a career year, this forum would be a totally different animal, IMO.

    I’m still shocked about Valverde.

  31. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Carmona Not fleet afoot.

  32. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    ichiro=energy

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    DONNY – the year I had him he wasn’t hitting anything! I couldn’t even get points for singles!

  34. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    where has brett bustero been?

  35. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Ichiro = amazing. Talk about agile and quick!

  36. jacksquat June 21st, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Nice bunt.

  37. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    montero being sent down singlehandedly decimated this blog for the better. ;)

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Last time I saw him he was taking about coming up with a blog or something. Maybe he’s off doing that?

  39. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    I like him due to his qualifying at numerous positions. Fantasy sometimes just comes down to being able to field More players than your opponent in H2H competition.

  40. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    love when ichi climbs a wall.
    have seen him stand on it.

  41. Frankg June 21st, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Just reported. Cubs have traded Brent Lillibridge to Yankees for player to be named later. He plays 2b, SS, OF. I believe he was at AAA. Gonzalez back to SW?

    Yipes stripes!!!

  43. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    This should be the 1-2 EVERY GAME.
    They are pests.
    Now Cano…3 run HR

  44. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Brent Stuart Lillibridge (born September 18, 1983) is an American Major League Baseball infielder and outfielder for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball. He is known for his versatile playing skills, defensive prowess in the outfield, and is a utility player having started at every position except pitcher and catcher so far in his career.

  45. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    A defensive swing with 1 strike?

  46. pkyankfan69 June 21st, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Loney lookin’ good on his back.

  49. tbone1570 June 21st, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Brent Lillibridge career OPS OF .610

  50. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Surprised about Lillibridge. I remember him getting some key hits at one point but I think his real estate really took a dive.

  51. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Cano got the run in but he was swinging at anything in sight

  52. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I’d run Ichiro.

  53. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Not easy sliding at 2B.

  54. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    As someone who adores defense, I’m happy we got Lillibridge. But I would have thought that the immediate need was for a bit of hitting.

  55. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Lillibridge played for 3 teams last year splitting most of his time between 1B, 3B and OF.
    Bye-bye Alberto, we hardly knew ye…again.

  56. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Wasn’t Lillibridge the player that made 2 amazing diving catches against the Yanks

  57. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Cash worked OT today.

  58. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Wasn’t Lillibridge the player that made 2 amazing diving catches against the Yanks
    ===============
    Yes I think so..on the White Sox.

  59. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    One in RF and one in LF?

  60. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Donny, the year I drafted Zobrist we weren’t playing H2H.

    Captain, that sounds very familiar.

  61. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Hafner all dead red.

  62. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    To end a game.

  63. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    I still miss having Randy around. Seriously.

  64. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Just me, but anything other than H2H is CPA stuff.

  65. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Why aren’t hockey finals played back to back to back? They play every day in the season, don’t they? What’s up with that?

  66. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    H2H was certainly more interesting and more challenging.

  67. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    I still like that old Aamco commercial where the chimpanzees were beating onna transmission with plastic bats. That was a riot.

  68. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    I like the Blimpie ad where the guy talks to his sandwich and the other horny guy wants to get sloppy seconds.

  69. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    “I still like that old Aamco commercial where the chimpanzees were beating onna transmission with plastic bats. That was a riot”

    Definitely a crowd pleaser! I remember sitting with my brothers and sisters and laughing uproariously every time it came on. You never got sick of it.

  70. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    The Yankee infield dirt looks really slow. They musta soaked the hell out of it. The Ichiro slide further proof.

  71. mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    almonte leads off next inning. time to switch to the big tv and relax and watch his HR…later.

  72. jacksquat June 21st, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    BD (Boston Dave) June 21st, 2013 at 6:15 pm
    was this already discussed?

    “Heyman hears that Cano appears to be aiming for a deal rivaling Alex Rodriguez’s $275 million contract with the club.”

    good luck dude – have fun on the Dodgers.

    LOL

    If they drop out of contention, trade his ass. That’s ridiculous.

  89. RayVT June 21st, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Almonte has 2 hits in a row! Wow! When was the last time that happened! LOL!

  90. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    tbone, thanks. I was watching that last game at the house of one of my brothers because we had gone to my niece’s 8th grade graduation and went to the house later. All the people there were Bruins fans (except for me, but I’m in the closet with that stuff in terms of family.) It was really a debilitating experience having to pretend I was happy every time the Bruins scored and actually having to show outward distress when Chicago scored. But what hit me is how brutally physical that game is. I automatically thought that there probably aren’t too many hefty hockey players. So I can see why they wouldn’t play every night.

  91. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Phelps has to pitch inside more especially in this ballpark. He is falling behind but also very predictable.

  92. ac1 June 21st, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Dont worry wells will be back in tomorrow…

  93. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Damn Nix…

  94. UnKnown June 21st, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    Well Almonte made that look easy.

    Vern on the other hand makes it look so hard. I mean the guy said he was dominated by a pitching machine. :lol:

  95. tbone1570 June 21st, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    But what hit me is how brutally physical that game is.

    ——————————-
    It’s been a fairly clean series. You should see a game where they get really chippy, it will refine brutal for you.

  96. RayVT June 21st, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    Joe G needs a new Binder! It is called SMALL BALL 101. If you don’t have the Bronx Bombers anymore, then you need to use the new Yankee Binder. (Bunt)

  97. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Girardi’s problem with Hughes was always that he felt he didn’t challenge hitters enough. He’d say that he wanted Hughes to go after them and he just wasn’t doing it. I remember in 2008 Girardi saying he felt Hughes was being too careful and he wanted him to throw strikes.

    I think Hughes is far too cerebral and therefore too careful – he may overthink less than he did in the past, but when you can’t put someone away after getting two strikes, I have to believe that you’re reacting from timidity – especially if your stuff is good. In other words, if someone has a blazing fast ball working, use it for strike 3 also if you have to.

  98. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Phelps has to mix it up better too many fastballs

  99. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Ray, they tried SMALL BALL when they scored three runs yesterday with smoke and mirrors.

    Maybe they can find some middle ground and score with some hits.

  100. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    nix is a legit hr average hitter.

  101. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    keep falling behind phelps and they are hitting bullets

  102. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    tbone, a lot of them seem to have missing teeth. And dear God, they must be in top physical shape to be able to remain whole after someone squishes them into the boards! They have to be a tough breed!

    I’m not a hockey fan so I don’t typically watch games, but have you ever seen bench-clearing brawls in hockey, and if so, if everyone is swinging at each other, how do they decide who gets penalties? Is there a maximum to the number of players on a team that can be called for penalties at any one time?

  103. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Today will be remembered as Z day.
    WW Z and Zolio playing the sameday. Coincidence? I think not.

  104. RayVT June 21st, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    True! But a Hit & Run would work too. It is page 2 of the SMALL BALL Binder.

  105. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    That’s some beautiful waxed poetry from Paulie on the beautiful lifetime memories of graduation ceremonies.

    I’m guessing that Phelps is trying to save his Change-Up for later in the game. Right now, Everything is 86-91 MPH

  107. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    These balls are hit extremely hard

  108. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    “WW Z and Zolio playing the sameday. Coincidence? I think not.”

    Are you saying that Joe Girardi is a zombie?

  109. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Yea, like we care

  110. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Don’t look now but Toronto is 8-2 in their last 10 games. And it’s early in the game but they’re leading the O’s.

  111. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Wrong side of the bag

  112. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Phelps isn’t going to last in this game much longer. Falling behind and not changing location won’t equal success.

  113. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    COME ON PHELPSY!!!

  114. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Phelps pissed about Blue.

  115. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    thank god. that inning could have been worse but could have been better if cano made the play.

  116. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    “Phelps pissed about Blue.”

    Can’t be easy to suck that stuff up.

    Sweet! Good for you Austin!

  119. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Romine got a hit? Amazing…

  120. RayVT June 21st, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Actually Joe G is very very smart. In some ways it hurts him as he analyzes things too much. He can relate to Hughes because that is who Joe G is really. With Hughes’ stuff he should pitch to the middle of the plate & let his fastball run to the corners. High & Tight & Low & Away should be the zones for him after the 1st strike.

  121. joecembrale June 21st, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Holy crap on a cracker, what do ya know.

    tbone, a lot of them seem to have missing teeth. And dear God, they must be in top physical shape to be able to remain whole after someone squishes them into the boards! They have to be a tough breed!

    I’m not a hockey fan so I don’t typically watch games, but have you ever seen bench-clearing brawls in hockey, and if so, if everyone is swinging at each other, how do they decide who gets penalties? Is there a maximum to the number of players on a team that can be called for penalties at any one time?
    ——————————

    HAHAHA! Just about all of them are missing teeth. They really are tough guys, you hear stories about them taking a puck to the mouth then going into the locker room to collect their teeth and get stiches and then back to the ice for more action.

    I have seen a number of bench clearing brawls, but mostly in the “good old days”. They’re a lot like baseball fights, everyone just pairs up and grabs each other with out much swinging. Most of the punches are thrown by the initial participants.

  125. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    get that run back ichi good job!

  126. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    SMALL BALL!!!

  127. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    and that is how we should play from now on.

  128. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    I don’t like Gardner bunting and playing for 1 run

  129. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    that was like a safety squeeze

  130. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    love that Small ball…

  131. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    Is there a maximum to the number of players on a team that can be called for penalties at any one time?
    —————-
    Not really sure if there is a maximum number of penalties that can be assessed at one time. I do know the refs can give a player a 10 min misconduct penalty. The player has to sit out the 10 min but the team isn’t short handed for any amount of that time. There is also a game misconduct penalty that disqualifies the player from the rest of they game.

  135. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    No word on the Lillibridge deal from K and the guys?

  136. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Nick.
    Can’t confirm nor deny girardi zombified. What I do know is there have been rumors of walking deads at the stadium and everyone knows the zombie appoxolypse is coming2013.

  137. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Ray, I think his background in engineering would almost dictate that he’d be an extremely analytical manager. And as you say, it definitely hurts him in some ways, And not to cast aspersions, but it seems that many of the fans don’t understand the way he thinks because they are probably not wired so intricately. When he does something if I can’t figure out why he’s doing it I’m wise enough to at least know he has a well-thought-out and sound reason behind it. He’s definitely not willy nilly.

  138. UnKnown June 21st, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Happy to see us take back the lead quick like that again.

  139. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Wow is this strike zone small

  140. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Billy was willy-nilly that way tho he had principles.
    Joe is more in the mold of Hal where Billy and George had a love-hate thing going..

  141. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    3-2 counts, another bullets.

  142. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    tbone, I remember one point in the game where Chicago had 5 players on the ice for a period of time and the Bruins had 3. So I’m supposing that Bruins were assessed two penalties for that period of time. What if they got three penalties all at once? Would you ever see 5-2 on the ice?

  143. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Cano should have had that, he seems slow in the field tonight. Maybe it’s because he isn’t hitting but it just seems like sometimes his head isn’t into the game.

  144. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    ONeill didn’t know the #’s were retired in order of retirement date.

  145. UnKnown June 21st, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    Not sure what to think about David tonight.

  146. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    I’m Not seeing enough variation in the MPH from pitch to pitch.

  149. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    If girardi was smart he would have dfad the pitching machine and had hughes throw bp to wells. Even a caveman would have done that.

  150. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Phelps has been throwing an excellent At’em ball all night.

  151. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Arod, Nunez, Jeter,Grandy and Cervy soon….which 5 will go for them?

    ——————-
    I don’t know the exact rule, but a team is never left with less then 3 skaters. I believe that they tack on the additional penalty time to the first of the two prnalties to expire.

  155. RayVT June 21st, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    IR1U know!

  156. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Somebody throw some cold water on Cano.

  158. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Cano is playing hardball…just not on the field.

  159. ac1 June 21st, 2013 at 8:15 pm

  162. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Girardi should pull Cano from the game. It’s obvious that his head isn’t in the game. Terrible effort from him tonight.

  175. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    A real 3rd basemen makes that play. Adams isn’t a natural over there so he doesn’t know when to dive for the ball.

  176. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Here’s a stat I heard about the Keebler elf. Before the start of tonight’s game he had been 1 for his last 21 and 6 for his last 37. (Pretty sure I’m quoting those correctly.)

  182. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Phelps is holding onto this game by a thread. It’s about to come undone…

  183. ac1 June 21st, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    How do they get on adams but not cano?

  184. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    If there is 1 Thing that Hal cares about it is a Dollar.

  185. joecembrale June 21st, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    If the Yanks slip into mediocrity for three-fours years, we are going to see a lot o f efforts like this from Cano and his contract will make him untradable, at least for anything worthwhile.

  186. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    I’m starting to think Phelps could lose his job to Nova over Hughes.

  187. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Night Ray. Drive carefully!

  190. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Hal will let Robbie walk, he doesn’t care.

  200. igotid88 June 21st, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    Could’ve been 3 if Meyers hadn’t swung at ball 4. But that’s good for us

  201. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    nail bitting is not for every inning, otherwise this will become a full length suspense movie.

    Roberto Heredia Hernández (born August 30, 1980)[1] is a Dominican professional baseball pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball. Hernández made his major league debut with the Cleveland Indians on April 15, 2006 under the name of Fausto Carmona, the name he used to obtain a visa in order to pitch in the United States.

    He is the player to be named later.

    never had gelato but had spumoni ice yesterday, ever had ramen, i have not.

    UPDATE, 8:19 p.m.: Alberto Gonzalez’s stay with the Yankees could be a short one. The Cubs have announced that they’ve traded Brett Lillibridge to the Yankees for a PTBNL or cash.

    Chad, you’re going to get some people here excited with that kind of talk.

  260. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Beware of dissyness or light headedness. Yanks scored 4 runs in a game causes body in shock. No need to consult a doctor. Take two cookies and call me in the morning.

  261. mick June 21st, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    oh i forgot the cherry garcia frogurt…w/ choc chips & cherries

  262. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Yes, I would bet money that mick does not have gelato in the house.

  263. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 8:44 pm

  295. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    With mick it wouldn’t surprise me, but trisha, do you honestly not know what gelato is? It is the real thing — it’s Italian ice cream.

    If you’ve ever visited Italy and had ice cream, that was gelato. Ditto if you’ve ever gotten ice cream at an Italian restaurant or in an Italian neighborhood.

  296. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    how is gelato better than regular ice cream?

  297. Rich in NJ June 21st, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Way to battle, Phelps.

  298. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Nice game by Phelps. Wonder why he wasn’t allowed to get the third out. Just curious.

  299. Captain Clutch June 21st, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    Too each his or her own, but you when you say you wouldn’t waste calories on something that isn’t the real thing it sounds odd. It’s a premium ice cream variant, not frogurt.

    I hope they let this kid play everyday. Lets see what he can do.

  332. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    nick, I think of it as a step cousin to ice cream, kind of like frozen yogurt. And the looks of it doesn’t appeal to me. So I’ve never had a desire to even try it. I’m not a big ice cream eater to begin with, so maybe that’s part of it.

  333. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    “That sounds like it’s the 1st one I’ve ever made here…”

    I’m sure I’ve missed some.

  334. Pat M. June 21st, 2013 at 9:14 pm

  336. jacksquat June 21st, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    I give that home run 3 snaps in Z formation.

  337. igotid88 June 21st, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    Would suck if Almonte was the player to be named later. (I know he isn’t )

  338. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    give credit to girardi? are you kidding me?

  339. DONNYBROOK June 21st, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    We will Immediately trade this Kid for Soriano.

  340. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    This could also be construed as a prediction:

    mick June 21st, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    almonte leads off next inning. time to switch to the big tv and relax and watch his HR…later.

  341. ac1 June 21st, 2013 at 9:15 pm

  345. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    Tell you what I love about Phelps. He may bend but he doesn’t break. With some other pitchers, if they have an inning where they have the bases loaded, even if they get out of it cheap, it seems to follow them the rest of the game. With Phelps, that doesn’t happen.

  346. Niblick June 21st, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    Wells will be back in LF tomorrow.

  347. igotid88 June 21st, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    Why didn’t he start the 2nd game of the dh?

    I have some experience with this gelato thing.. ice cream has more fat because it’s made with cream. Gelato is made with milk. Ice cream is also churned faster.. gelato is churned less and slowly. And that’s basically all I know about gelato lol.

  359. Rich in NJ June 21st, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Pat

    One word: Pitchability

  360. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    “I think of it as a step cousin to ice cream, kind of like frozen yogurt.”

    But it’s not, it’s just ice cream with less air pumped into it, so it’s richer and usually comes in smaller portions to compensate. But it’s not frozen yogurt or non-ice cream in any way. Perhaps that perception comes from the fact that a good number of shops sell both.

    There’s a chain in SF called Tutti Melon and it bills itself as a “premium frozen yogurt” shop that also sells gelato.

    I would recommend a trip to Florence to have your first gelato: http://www.vivoli.it/en

  361. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 9:20 pm

  363. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    You know Joe’s way is never to sit someone permanently. He keeps giving them tries. So yes, at some point I would expect to see Wells back in there. And it won’t surprise me if he starts hitting again.

    That said, Joe would be doing Wells a favor if he sat him out for at least a week. And if you want your team to keep winning, the best way to do it is to go with a hot bat – that would be Almonte. Also, the kid’s got a cannon. What’s not to like!

  364. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    I haven’t heard (read) the word spumoni in years.
    ===================
    i always had trouble with the difference between spumoni and tortoni, i think it is called…i believe tortoni has nuts?

  384. Hassey June 21st, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    Did any of you see the video from the jimmy Fallon show where he yodels with brad Pitt? Google it
    And the John krasinski lip synch contest

  385. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 9:33 pm

    you have a 3 run lead Robertson, no walk

  390. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    coke zero> diet coke

  391. joecembrale June 21st, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Tortoni has more of an almond/ butter texture with crumbs on top.

  392. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    what do we do with almontero when grandy returns?

  393. Hassey June 21st, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    Jimmy kümmel makes me laugh more consistently than Fallon but those two things were hilarious

  394. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    i think kimmell is perpetually stoned.

  395. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    Fans and players prefer the opposite experiences in their games. Players hate sitting back on their heels. Fans, on the other hand, love being able to sit back on their heels. This game thread is a perfect indication of that.

    :)

  396. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    before we can go to a place, we need a vehicle. how about a Suzuki?

  397. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 9:42 pm

    Who needs vets when you have these diaper dandies.
    Romine a hit
    Adams hit
    Zolii trifecta
    Phelps 5.2 of 2run ball.

    The future looks bright.

    what do we do with almontero when grandy returns?

    Dh and plays for ich/gardy/grandy vs tough lefties?

    If this team ever gets on a roll with Gardner and Ichiro 1-2, where do you b at Jeter when he comes back? Where do you think Joe will bat him?

    Did Nick leave for Italy Pat M?

  410. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    mick – sad confession. I’ve turned into a Candy Crush freak. When the game slows down, I keep an eye on the game and play Candy Crush at the same time.

    In the last hour I ate some tremendously firm and sweet fresh cherries!

  411. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    a single ticket CANdO too as long as I can have my hafner special

    Reyes jinx is looming

  415. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    No mick. Nick had to run and restock his nicks gelato stores with the lines being out the door. Who needs to pay for advertising these days when you have lohud to sponsor u.

  416. UnKnown June 21st, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    A.L. East is always the best division. I’d like to play in the Central for one year. :grin:

  417. fantasygame101 June 21st, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    Hafner special not available in OVERtheBAY restaurant. I will take an ALMON dessert instead

  418. Pat M. June 21st, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    mick……Nick in SF is indeed a global traveler, but as far a hitting Italy don’t know. He hasn’t mentioned it . The Z-Man is up !!!

  419. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    Zoilo resembles a young Danny Tartabull esp with that 45 on his back.

  420. mick June 21st, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Does 6-2 count as a blowout?

  421. deltajoe June 21st, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    oh no Zoilo struck out. Send him back to triple a

  422. jmills June 21st, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    Joecembrale, …. Reyes is going to be fine :)

  423. Nick in SF June 21st, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    I’m still here, I’m just trying to figure out how I became buddies with a Pepsi drinker who doesn’t touch beer. :shock:

  424. jmills June 21st, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    Mick, 6-2, counts for trite a little.

  425. joecembrale June 21st, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    Who said this:

    “It’s hard to stay like that [for] 100-and-something pitches that they throw, Sometimes, you’re going to miss one or two.”

    Derek Jeter?

  426. jmills June 21st, 2013 at 10:03 pm

    I don’t like Pepsi, and was never given much to, Coke.

  427. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    jmills, remember me telling you that your team was far too good to be losing the way they were and it was going to take a little time for the team to gel and players to get used to each other? Well Paul O’Neill just said that same thing about your Jays.

    You must be one happy kid!!!

    Typical Phelps start. not pitching well. Keeps bending but doesn’t break.
    ===============
    thats what makes him a Pitcher
    ——

    Possibly, but he got away with a lot of mistakes. A better hitting team might. Each a different story

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

    Yeah, he’s no Phil Hughes (thank God!)
    ——

    Eventually he’ll break just like Nova did. I hope not but he can’t get away with how he pitched tonight every time.

  429. Shame Spencer June 21st, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    Hassey June 21st, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Pshhh.. you would. ;)

    Tab all the way.

  430. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 21st, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    Great breaking bread with all of you tonight. Our team done good!

    And as mick said earlier. this is the first game of the rest of the Yankee season!

    Night all!

    :)

  431. SoS June 21st, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    I can’t be the only non beerface looking pepsi drinking weirdo out there.
    What can I say. I’m vain.

  432. mick June 21st, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    They still make Tab?

  433. jmills June 21st, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    Trish, great to see ya’! I am indeed one, ” happy kid “. – I remember you! :D

  434. austinmac June 21st, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    That felt like a blow out. Almonte has insured starting against right handers for awhile. That was fun to see tonight.

  435. austinmac June 21st, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Jmills,

    I liked you better when your team didn’t win every single night. Just kidding. Winning is more fun, isn’t it?

  436. mick June 21st, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    435 posts about nothing…

  437. jmills June 21st, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    Austin, winning rules, mon ami! – get your radio fixed :)

  438. mick June 21st, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    and a good time was had by all…
