McFarland vs. Yankees

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

WEATHER: The tarp was on the field earlier today, but now it’s just really humid.

UMPIRES: HP Eric Cooper, 1B Jeff Kellogg, 2B Paul Schrieber, 3B Adam Hamari

CANO IN CAMDEN: Robinson Cano is a .357 (102-for-286) career hitter with 59 runs, 27 doubles, 12 homers and 36 RBI in 69 career games at Camden Yards. Since August 22, 2008 he has a .417 (73-for-175) average with 45 runs, 18 doubles, 11 home runs and 26 RBI in 42 games at Camden Yards. He?has hit safely in 30 of his last 34 games in Baltimore, and in 37 of his last 42.

SUZUKI YARDS: Ichiro Suzuki has hit safely in each of his last 21 games at Camden Yards since April 5, 2008 (.385, 35-for-91). According to the Elias Sports Bureau, he is tied with Derek Jeter (April 4, 2002 through June 22, 2004) and Rafael Palmiero (April 23, 1994 through June 15, 1994) for the second-longest hitting streak in the history of the ballpark, trailing only Jacoby Ellsbury, who had a 22-game hitting streak in Baltimore.

UPDATE, 7:34 p.m.: Maybe all the Yankees needed was for me to eat dinner while they’re facing a lefty. Gardner’s leadoff double and Cano’s RBI single led to a run in the first inning, and now the Yankees have two on for Gardner in the second.

UPDATE, 8:04 p.m.: Yankees have chased McFarland from the game with an RBI double by Stewart. It’s 3-0 in the third, and the Orioles have brought a right-handers from the bullpen.

UPDATE, 8:17 p.m.: CC is dealing through three innings. Dealing.

UPDATE, 8:45 p.m.: Seriously, CC has been very, very good through five.

UPDATE, 8:52 p.m.: I honestly felt about 75 percent sure CC was going to get a no-hitter. Just felt like one of those days for him. But McLouth just floated a single to center and Sabathia might have to settle for a very good start instead of a milestone performance.

UPDATE, 8:56 p.m.: There’s an inexperienced first baseman for you. Looked like Adams needed to stay on the bag and let Sabathia field the slow chop. Instead, Adams charged and there was no one to cover the bag. Infield single has two on with no outs in the sixth. Sabathia just went from no hitter to being in some actual trouble. O’s still haven’t hit the ball hard, but they’ve put themselves in a good spot.

UPDATE, 9:01 p.m.: The Adams mistake hurts. Machado just doubled in two runs to pull the Orioles within 3-2.

UPDATE, 9:06 p.m.: Orioles hit one ball hard this inning. They have three runs.

UPDATE, 9:11 p.m.: Infield coach Mick Kelleher wasted no time talking to David Adams in the dugout. First base in a new position for Adams, and his lack of familiarity seems to have cost the Yankees at least one run that inning.

UPDATE, 9:29 p.m.: Home run by McLouth. Orioles in front. Yankees strong start to this game completely forgotten. Offense has looked lost since that two-run third inning.

    Hello Trisha!
    I have a feeling that the Yankees win tonight. I think that the O’s throwing a Rule-5 LH Relief Pitcher as a starter just slaps them in the face & may be the beginning of a run of sorts.

    I think the Yanks score double digits & it isn’t 00!

  3. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    GO YANKS!!! GO CC!!! GO JAYS!!!!

  4. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Wow Ray!!! I hope you’re right! You’ve even got them scoring higher than I do. But I’ll take it. :)

    Multitasking so I’ll be in and out but always with one eye on the television.

  5. Against All Odds June 28th, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    @ Niblick I don’t think anyone on here hates Cano outside of trolls and maybe a few members. I might not agree with everything that is said about him but it doesn’t feel like hate at least not with regular posters. If you want to see hate go to the YES board and find the thread about Cano. There is a ton of hate in there.

  6. pkyankfan69 June 28th, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    It’s time to talk extension with GGBG.

    Instead we’ll wait till he is a FA and either overpay or lose him.

  7. mick June 28th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    why not just bunt him over…runs count.

  8. mick June 28th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    they pitch to cano?
    chumps

  9. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    :)

    A good start for the home team!

  10. mick June 28th, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    we are the home team…its Yankee Stadium South.

  11. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Well I was using home team in a manner of speaking.

  12. mick June 28th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    caught a break there..

  13. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    4th outfielder and that terrible, awful, horrible Robbie came through.

    Neither is the ballplayer that Nixy is though.

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    I think Vernon caught two breaks there!

    :)

  15. mick June 28th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    why is he up 4th?

  16. mick June 28th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    what are hafners #’s vs leftys?

  17. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    mick – no idea. The only thing I can think of is Girardi’s way of getting him going. Not saying I agree with the idea. Or Girardi really believes he’s going to come through in a big way and hopes there are men on ahead of him.

  18. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Disco June 28th, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    I correct myself. Moustakas, Andrus, and Keppinger have been worse.

    —–

    That’s dreadful, I don’t really understand WRC+ but you never want to end up between Andrelton Simmons and Alcides Escobar in an offensive category.

  19. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    AAO – feels like a lot of hate to me. Typical of the posters, though. Anyone who isn’t on a hot streak is labelled a 4th outfielder, or lazy, or stupid, etc.

  20. mick June 28th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    how much rope does wells get? geeez…

  21. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    REPOST:

    I wasn’t trying to say that I hate Cano. He’s probably the best 2B the Yankees have ever had and the best 2B in the league. I love watching him play, and I’ve never accused him of being lazy (he’s just makes plays look easy).

    My point was driving at his comments

    “I might see one pitch over the plate,” Cano said. “That’s what they’re doing; one pitch over the plate and then they’re pitching around me. It’s not like before where they would give me strikes. They’re going corner to corner, so I might see one pitch. I have to take advantage whenever I get that pitch.”

    If he isn’t getting pitches to hit then he needs to take the walk and force the pitchers to close the strike zone. Wells, Hafner, et al. aren’t going to provide the protection that Cano needs to get 2/3 pitches to hit.

  22. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    I see a lot of Camden Park fans come to the game dressed as empty seats – just like at Yankee Stadium.

  23. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    CC’s start is sponsored by “The tent is back” event at Hyundai?

    Are they not aware of his weight loss?

  24. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Robbie’s OBP over the last 6 games (before this one) was .600. That’s obviously not enough for the many Robbie haters, though.

  25. yankeefeminista June 28th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Go C! Go Yanks!

  26. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Don’t get beat by anyone named Manny should be the rule for the Yanks.

  27. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Nice 1-2-3 CC!

  28. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Great poll over at the It Is High blog.

    The poll question is simply “Who is the worst?” The choices are:

    – A-Rod
    – Cashman
    – Vernon Wells
    – Paula Deen
    – that Snowden guy
    – Putin
    – Kim
    – Kanye
    – Canadians
    – All of the above
    – Everybody else

    Arod was leading before I refreshed, now the poll is gone. :(

  29. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    This kid is either great at hitting corners or the umpire has a freaky zone.

  30. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Hahah, great poll.

    Kanye west and his new “I am a God” song would top the list for me.

  31. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Nick in SF…..I was surprised that Cal’s 6 year guard Allen Crabbe wasn’t selected until the start of the second round. He’s been playing in a Pro style for years under Coach Mony and will be an impact player right from the get go….. Seemed like he’d been terrorizing the UCLA Bruins for a decade.

  32. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Pat M, Crabbe was just a Junior! I was hoping he would stay in school for his last year.

    Jorge Guttierez was the one who played all four years and terrorized the Pac 10/12 for all that time.

    Crabbe got traded to Portland, so I’m sure he will enjoy the secondhand smoke that wafts through that fine city at all hours of the day and night.

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Maybe he got hurt when he got hit with the ball?

  34. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    Then again maybe not.

  35. Against All Odds June 28th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    ———————

    The lazy stuff gets to be a bit much I agree but it still doesn’t feel like hate. Ppl have taken a hard stance on him but it’s not too vile. I’ve seen worse things said about him over the past few weeks.

  36. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    McFarland said “where was that?”

  37. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    I love that look McFarland gave, like how the hell didn’t I get that up and in pitch called a strike????

  38. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    Don’t they know I’m T.J. McFarland???

    Your wings will be out in a minute. Would you like blue cheese or ranch with that?

  39. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    Damn when the bottom of the order gets on you have to get them in. Another run would have been nice.

  40. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    AAO –

    Cano rarely gets hurt and makes 99% of standard plays and most difficult plays. I think some players, like Dustin Pedroia, make plays look difficult and get praised for it.

    I can really only think of one specific example of Cano looking lazy where he hit a line drive that was dropped and then he stopped running. I think a lot of Dominican players get the lazy label because they are so smooth.

  41. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    CC is looking great.

  42. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    CC looking like an A-C-E!

    :)

  43. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Sabathia displaying nice tempo tonight. He could be in the midst of a great run of starts. Nick in SF. Jorge G was at Cal so long he played against Reggie Miller. Crabbe is a very fine player who’s going to be a prime time type NBA player.

  44. Against All Odds June 28th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    I think a lot of Dominican players get the lazy label because they are so smooth.

    ——————————-

    I think Dominican players get the lazy label because when they go all out or show emotion they get branded with trying to show the other team up. Look at the WBC. Look how much energy that team showed. Not the antics the aggressive style they played with.

  45. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Robbie is just awful, isn’t he?

  46. Against All Odds June 28th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    lol

  47. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    TERRIBLE offense!

    :)

  48. DONNYBROOK June 28th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Somebody needs to teach the Yanks how to situational hit. We have failed to do this tonight already. With our limited fire power, this is an Absolute must.

  49. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Go Vernon!

  50. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Happy Vernon didn’t try to do too much. That’s the mark of a wise veteran.

  51. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    “Somebody needs to teach the Yanks how to situational hit. We have failed to do this tonight already. With our limited fire power, this is an Absolute must.”

    I think they heard you…

  52. RayVT June 28th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Looking good!

  53. DONNYBROOK June 28th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Ichiro blew a bunt opportunity the other night also.

  54. DONNYBROOK June 28th, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    Ichiro let the Ump know that was NO strike

  55. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    There’s always been a flair to the DR style of play and with that comes a sense of showboating as well. That being said, Cano has always dogged it on grounders and on other occasions. Very good ballplayer with the most spectacular arm I’ve ever seen at second base. He’s not an elite player though.

  56. DONNYBROOK June 28th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Attendance must have been cut down by the weather. Should be jammed vs Yanks

  57. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Ichiro fooled, thinking fast ball

  58. DONNYBROOK June 28th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    The Ichiro Homers have got him out of his game. Blown bunts, K’s

  59. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Let’s go Zoilo!!!

  60. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    Sux starter 0-2 with 9.20 ERA. Josh Johnson pitching for the Jays.

    Sux leading 2-0. COME ON JAYS! Grrr!

  61. jmills June 28th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    Trying to get up to speed on this laptop rather than mobile, everything appears rather different, so give me temps to catch up; I’ve got Ayrton Senna, ” The Right to Win “, lined up the blackberry, so obviously have to leave that form alone. Am I winning? I’d like to learn how to make happy faces and such things.

  62. DONNYBROOK June 28th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    Situational hitting used to be easy for Ichiro. Now he’s attempting to be Home Run Baker.

  63. tomingeorgia June 28th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Pesky guests kept me from seeing the Yankees score two runs. Nice take-out slide just then.

  64. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Well, at least for once it FEELS like we are winning 10-0

  65. DONNYBROOK June 28th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Fluke-A -Rama.

  66. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Ol’ Bucky was hoist with his own petard.

  67. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    How’s THAT for situational hitting?

    Yankee offense looking pretty fine!

    :)

    Poor kid. I didn’t know this was his first start in the majors.

  68. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    Runs!!!

  69. jmills June 28th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Tom, make any excuse, get rid of those nonsense guests.

  70. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Alice Eve has got to be the most classic beauty in Hollywood since the 50s

    I’d give my left pinky for the chance to get her in a rundown

  71. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    And that’s it for T.J. McFarland.

    I’m starting to worry he forgot about our cheesecake.

  72. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    That pitch was low

  73. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    Man do I hate those Tex deep breaths Adams keeps taking.

    If he’s that nervous (or winded) he shouldn’t be out there.

    Bad body language.

  74. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    Hassey, how can you say that?

    I mean, how can you say that without linking to a picture?

  75. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Adams you have to swing the bat

  76. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Man do I hate those Tex deep breaths Adams keeps taking.
    ————–

    Agree he does that during every at bat. He is obviously very nervous up here and trying to slow himself down. He is over matched but they have no one else.

  77. tomingeorgia June 28th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    jmills
    I called a restaurant for them for their 43rd anniversary dinner. At least they’ll get a free drink or a dessert. Keep it up, CC!

  78. jackamir June 28th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    Adams is lost and needs some AAA pitching. He needs a slump buster.

  79. UnKnown June 28th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    CC takes it from here.

  80. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Gonzalez is a SS..Girardi has to stop playing these guys out of position.

  81. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Where are those pitches?

  82. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Cleveland is up 14-10 over the White Sox.

    [insert joke about the football score here]

  83. igotid88 June 28th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Harvey through 4

  84. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    AG leading off the inning. He’d better hit a Grand Slam.

  85. jackamir June 28th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Alice Eve is married to Vincent Chase.. Johnny Drama is her brother -in-law…

  86. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    AG leading off the inning. He’d better hit a Grand Slam.

    Yeah right this isn’t AAA.

  87. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Go 4TH OF!

    Someone has invaded Niblick’s body! But it definitely is a good spirit.

    ;)

  90. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    Hey – I love Gardy. Always have. I hate the people who, about a month ago, were dissing him so badly.

  91. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    Hardy is team MVP but not an all star?

  92. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Didn’t know gonzo had such a good arm

  93. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    Is that Liberace in the rainbow tanktop behind the Yankee dugout?

  94. SoS June 28th, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Browns just got a safety. 16-10 browns. Time isn’t in the bears side. The question to ask is what would the score be if the starters actually played the pre season games? Hmmm.

  95. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    I wonder what a geezer like pettitte thinks about from this particular dugout when he looks out at the field and recalls how long ago those battles to the death were with the old O’s

  96. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    Niblick, you’ve been positive in general. Very nice.

  97. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    At what point does Gonzalez really start kicking himself for that throw?

    CC is looking great.

  98. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    That kids sinker is killing guys

  99. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    I haven’t seen Star Trek yet, no wonder. I like the picture of her in the white t-shirt and glasses best.

  100. SoS June 28th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    How much longer before gardner is promoted to 3rd outfielder? Promotion due.

  101. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    Sux offense heating up again. Drug testing apparently over. I’m sure they never get the randoms. (Baseball is big business. Bud can afford to pay off anyone he wants to.)

  102. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    Gausman has an era over 7 this year. But don’t tell the Yankees that.

  103. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    Josh Johnson definitely having a good night.

    Oh well.

    GO YANKS!

  104. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    I wonder if Davis has been drug tested this year? If not he needs to be.

  105. SoS June 28th, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Can someone tell me how caliente ccs fastball is today?

  106. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Clutch – Sux pitcher started out with an ERA of over 9. Apparently nobody shared that with the “tied for 5th in the AL in offense” Jays.

    As they say, that’s baseball Suzyn.

  107. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Gotta tell you something kind of funny. It seems that Kay finally got the memo because the baseball superstition is that you’re not supposed to use the magic words until the 5th inning. Kay has been saying that CC hasn’t allowed any hits, and he just said “CC has a no hitter through 5″.

    :D

    Good for you Michael Kay! I really tired of blaming you for every potential Yankee no hitter that never quite made it.

    @FeinsandNYDN

    Four perfect innings for Sabathia, who has thrown only 45 pitches. Yankees lead 3-0.
    =====================================
    Wrong!

    Right, WTP?

    just for fun…

  116. Othello June 28th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Nova, Hughes, Almonte and Joba for Tulowitski.

  117. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Figures it’s crappy McLouth

  118. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Thanks Michael Kay.

  119. igotid88 June 28th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    Get Joba up

  120. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    I am surprised that Girardi hasn’t brought in Overbay for defense yet. Also Nix should be at 3rd base not Gonzalez. Gonzalez is not a utility guy who can play all over the infield.

  121. J. Alfred Prufrock June 28th, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    Awwww C. Nevertheless, YouDaMan!

  122. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    That is why you don’t have a 3rd baseman playing 1st base. Good job Girardi.

  123. mick June 28th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    get adams off 1st

  124. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    That was a Phil Hughes AB.

  125. jlyanks85 June 28th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    CC easily has Camilla out if Adams stays where he was.

  126. mick June 28th, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    2nd baseman playing then moved over to first ……Yanks are a roster of uneven puzzle pieces.. Giradi has been amazing so far

  130. tomingeorgia June 28th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    I’m alive, and the ump did call the infield fly.

  131. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Wake up call, it’s a ballgame.

  132. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Great now the Yanks will lose the game because of Girardi’s ridiculous bs to get AAA hitters into the lineup. CC needs to step up now.

  133. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    Wow.

  134. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Hopefully Buck brings T.J McFarland back in for the top of the 7th. :neutral:

  135. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Terrible throw by Gardner

  136. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Completely messed up that last post. No Joba please

  137. jackamir June 28th, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    That is why Gardner is a 4th of… His arm is average and he has the worst baseball instincts…

  138. jlyanks85 June 28th, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    This is what happens when you let the crappy bottom of the order get on. Also doesn’t help having a 3b playing 1st.

  139. igotid88 June 28th, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    Some bad luck for CC

  140. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    Joe take him out and put in Joba.

  145. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    After this inning Girardi has to get Overbay in at 1st base. You can’t just put guys anywhere you want on the field and not expect it to hurt you.

  146. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    How many 0-2 counts has CC turned into hits this inning?

  147. jackamir June 28th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

  148. bruceb June 28th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    Nine hits to zero and one inning later the game is tied.

    Our “ace” blows another lead. Yep great job

  150. igotid88 June 28th, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    CC must have lost 10lbs this inning

  151. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Terrible inning. The worst part of the inning is Gardner allowing Manny to go to 3rd on a shallow fly bal.

  152. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    That’s a start, then.

  153. RhapsodyInBlue June 28th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    The worst part of the inning was having Adams at 1st playing out of position blowing a play which should have been an out.

    The last inning was on Girardi.

  154. igotid88 June 28th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 8:56 pm
    That was a Phil Hughes AB.

    More like inning. 2 cheap hits. Miscommunication in the outfield.

  155. Run it Out June 28th, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    The worst part of the inning is Gardner allowing Manny to go to 3rd on a shallow fly bal.

    With Cano standing there with his mouth shut not telling Gardner he’s tagging. That wasn’t all on Gardner.

  156. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    This team has absolutely no luck. A hard hit ball and it goes right to the 3rd basemen. Unreal.

  157. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    It’s 9:13. Time for the moronic Gardy haters to appear. Coming soon: the idiotic Robbie haters.

    Aaron Hernandez is going to have a much sorer butt than Gausman in a few months…

  159. jackamir June 28th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Gardner is brain dead….The worst baseball IQ on the team.

  160. RhapsodyInBlue June 28th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Girardi thinks that 1st base is throw away position that anyone can play.

    That last inning cost them the lead and elevated CC’s pitch count.

    Adams cannot play first at this level.

  161. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Garnder has a leftfielder’s arm, and Run It Out is right on about Cano not giving him the heads up…..Good to have you around Run it out !!!!

  164. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Hopefully this offense can score another run. But it’s going to be hard, very hard.

  165. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    Niblick. Are you not watching the same game ???? Chill dude

  166. bruceb June 28th, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    It’s so hard for this team to score three runs that when you give it back all in one inning, it seems like the game is over. Felt the same way when Andy gave up four the other night…and it was. Orioles are too good a team to give a free out to.

  167. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    Pat M – just because you pretend that you were somehow involved in baseball and claim that you’re an expert doesn’t mean that you add anything to the conversation.

  168. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:22 pm

    ————————————

    Yes, Cano should have been yelling out to Gardner, BUT what other play was there after Gardner made the catch? Gardner needs to assume he’ll need to make the throw to third in that situation.

  170. igotid88 June 28th, 2013 at 9:24 pm

  172. SoS June 28th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    What the hell did Adams do? Did he get the call to pitch? Is Adams now going to be branded a 4th infielder?
    It me or does it seem like CC seems to give up leads his team gives him? 4th pitcher?

  173. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    There was no +1.5 run line for the Yanks due to the pitcher change. It’s win or lose.

  174. Pat M. June 28th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Why do you guys accept and make excuses for Gardner’s faults..He is a starting player that plays dumb… He should have 30 stolen bases and his defense is overrated…

  182. Nick in SF June 28th, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    From “should I text my brother to alert him that CC’s pitching a no-hitter” to “we’re losing.” :mad:

  184. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    Jackamir:

    He’s got great defense and is currently the second best hitter on the team. That was a bonehead play but he’s not a 4th outfielder by any means.

  185. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    Gonna blame Gardy and Robbie for the homer? C’mon, let’s hear it.

    RIO,
    I agree and I did say that Cano should have been yelling. It was always drummed into me as “Baseball 101″ that fielder need to think in advance where the play is going to be once he catchs the ball. Cano should have been yelling, CC should have been yelling, Stewie should have been telling and Almonte should have been yelling/

  190. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    I think we may have seen Adams’s last appearance for the team.

  191. J. Alfred Prufrock June 28th, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    Be nice if we could somehow get C off the hook.

  192. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    CC used to dominate lefties but that seems like a century ago. It’s nice to see the ace step up. I don’t care how many errors they make behind him in the field he is paid to win these games. Terrible job by him.

  197. RhapsodyInBlue June 28th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    I don’t know I thought the turning point in this game was the blown play at first in the 6th inning Adams out of position.

    Prolonging the 6th increasing CC’s pitch count. Down hill from there.

    That’s on the manager.

  200. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    I can’t believe that Gonzalez just batted for the Yanks in the 8th inning of a game that they are trying to win. He is as over matched as you could possibly be.

  201. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    Gonzalez is dreadful. When is Musty going to be ready?

  202. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    No other broadcaster references a potential perfect game or no hitter at all. Often times, the broadcasters will let the network go to commercial following the end of an inning without saying a word.

    Adams was holding the runner on, so he wasn’t out of position. Maybe he should have broke back to the bag, but that’s a tough play regardless.

    Kind of harsh to blame that inning on Adams or Giradi. .

    Hey Yanks!!! I go away for a short while and… :shock:

    Not making excuses for CC, but I have noticed that when a lot of pitchers are potentially pitching no hitters, if they give up the first hit, hits tend to follow that in bunches. I didn’t see and only heard so I have no idea about how it happened, other than Sterling kept saying it was two absolute bloops singles that did him in.

    COME ON OFFENSE!

    We know we’ve gotten to Jim Johnson before. No idea how he’s been pitching lately.

  231. Hassey June 28th, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    Maybe, just maybe, we can scratch out a run in the 9th.

  234. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    You can’t blame Adams it was only like this 2nd time ever playing 1st base. It’s on Girardi for actually playing him there. Also Gonzalez should never be in the lineup unless Nix really needs a day off. He can’t hit major league pitching.

  242. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Wonder why Johnson isn’t pitching? Maybe the 2 runs the last outing?

  243. RhapsodyInBlue June 28th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Give me a break. Adams froze didn’t know what the hell to do and why he was out of the game the next inning for Overbay’s defense.

    CC caught the ball and Adams was nowhere near the ball or bag.

  244. Steve W. June 28th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Yanks are quickly falling out of it. Might be out of the race by mid-July. This feels like 2008, without the beyond awful starting rotation

  245. RhapsodyInBlue June 28th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Next game start Overbay at 3rd.

  246. mick June 28th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    helpless…

  247. TheStraw June 28th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Ugh.

    —-

    That’s got to be it. Besides that he’d been pretty good lately.

  249. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    I hate how whatever Showalter does turns to gold. He makes me sick.

  250. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    All we need is a bloop and a blast – or even a blast.

  251. J. Alfred Prufrock June 28th, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    After 97, that’s tough

  252. mick June 28th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    why wasn’t ichiro up 2nd where he belongs?
    wasn’t he hot?
    joe is overthinking…

  253. JobaTipsHisCap June 28th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    It’s on cc, the so called ace

  254. RhapsodyInBlue June 28th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    AND how many games in Adam’s career prior to tonight has he played first base?

  255. TheStraw June 28th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    Nix has overstayed his welcome as a starter. Unfortunately, we have no one else.

  256. J. Alfred Prufrock June 28th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I don’t know why some people hate Buck so much, but whatever

  257. mick June 28th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    lets hope this bites buck in the ass.

  258. Steve W. June 28th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Isn’t the efficient strategy to place your best hitters at the top of the lineup, so they get more plate appearances throughout the course of the season. So, why is Jayson Nix batting second nearly every game?

    Robi HR?

  259. ac1 June 28th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Wow this is sickening to watch

  260. Locke June 28th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Crush it Cano.

  261. pkyankfan69 June 28th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    I’m excited to watch Russ Salzberg break down the game :(

  262. TheStraw June 28th, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Just a deflating loss.

  263. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Tommy Hunter. Wow, nice luxury to have a former starter as a relief pitcher.

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

    :( Yanks

    I really don’t want to hear the postgame.

  264. Niblick June 28th, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    CC’s ERA keeps rising, and the Yanks move one game closer to the basement.

  265. mick June 28th, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    like no team has ever blown a 3 run lead…reactionary

  266. Captain Clutch June 28th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    This is the 2nd worse loss of the year. Just behind Mo blowing the game to the Mets.

    CC should take full responsibility for losing the game. He should be able to win a game where he is leading 3-0 in the 6th inning. He has been terrible and makes way too many mistakes. I mean Nate freakin McLouth? The guy that was released and no one wanted him. You have to be kidding me that guy makes me sick.

  267. Melk Man June 28th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    At this point, is it even a question that they should be sellers at the deadline? Build for next year. A 2008 type season does nothing for us (and we won 89 games in 08, which is a longshot for this group).

    Sell off Hughes, Joba, Grandy, Kuroda, Ichiro and any other veteran

    They hung in there as long as they could, but we’re going to be under .500 by the trade deadline and with this roster, that is simply the truth

  268. J. Alfred Prufrock June 28th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    C always takes responsibility, never looks to make excuses or scapegoat anyone.

  269. TheStraw June 28th, 2013 at 10:01 pm

    At least the 2008 season begat 2009 spending and resulted in a title. Maybe that will be what it takes to get Hal and Cash off their asses.

  270. RYUKINGDOM June 28th, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    I want Tony Pena calling the shots.
