No chance

Kevin Phelps

By the end of tonight’s third inning, the Orioles had scored enough runs to win any one of the Yankees past 33 games. It was ugly early, didn’t get any better late, and an 11-3 embarrassment at Camden Yards left the Yankees one loss away from their third five-game losing streak of the past five weeks. David Phelps lasted only 2.1 innings. In the course of seven outs, Phelps allowed nine hits and nine earned runs. Chris Davis hit his first of two home runs in the game — he’s the Major’s first player to reach 30 this season — and Ryan Flaherty chased Phelps with a three-run shot in the third. The Yankees chipped away, but chipping away wasn’t going to do much against that early Baltimore lead. Brett Gardner had two doubles, including one to drive in a run in the ninth, but that was pretty much the offensive high point. The real bright spot was Ivan Nova, who pitched well in relief, allowing two runs — both on the second Davis homer — through 5.2 innings. His season ERA is now lower than Phelps’.

    The fake O’s fans are funny

    The last time we won a series it was June 9th.

    Sads.

  3. Mike in Harrisburg June 29th, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Chris Davis seems to have become a slugger in the Jose Bautista mold. Not the Brett Boone mold.

  4. Shame Spencer June 29th, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    Alright here is how the schedule shakes out before the ASB:

    4 set against Minny
    3 more against the O’s
    4 set against KC
    3 more against Minny

    Any predictions on how we’ll fair?

    I’d really like to believe we can win some games against Minny.. but I’d also like to believe that one day Oprah will adopt me so…..

    1) All these ball players are on IGF-1, not steroids, not HgH because MLB does not test for IGF-1.

    2) IGF is a naturally occurring hormone similar to HgH (they work synergistically)

    3) IGF-1 has anabolic effects similar to HgH

    4) When HgH goes up, so does IGF-1

    5) If a player took HgH his IGF-1 levels would rise but MLB does not look at this indicator, it looks directly at the rise in HgH

    Once again, today’s cheaters (Ortiz, Davis, Bautista, Gardner, the Red Sox entire lineup, the Cardinals entire lineup) are using IGF-1

    I’m busy…

    still no trade, no firing, no promotion, nothing. This organization is acting like they are in good shape right now.

    Vote for the future. Vote Austin to the Futures Game, so you can watch him on mlb network:

    If you vote for @t_austin21 to go to the 2013 All-Star Future’s Game, then you will be cool. Be cool and vote. :) http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/events/.....ballot.jsp

  9. Shame Spencer June 29th, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    If Gardner is on IGF-1 I hope he’s heard the phrase ‘sharing is caring’ at least once in his life.

  10. bruceb June 29th, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    Every team in the AL East is .500 or better…but not for long. What chance does this team have when the starting pitching falls apart too? None.

    Amen. :) I keep reading, “If George were alive!” Really? It could be so much worse. The front office he put in place dug this hole.

  13. Nick in SF June 29th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Minny is a far away place. How about Hiroki Kuroda pitches well before a global audience tomorrow night and our lineup puts up a few runs against the righty chump on the mound for the O’s. :mad:

    Win and game and we can all go to sleep happy about the result!

  14. bruceb June 29th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    If George were alive…he’d be having a heart attack right now.

    Under .500 by the break.

    the sad thing about how bad is this team is that no one in the organization is even better right now. If you can not replace a hitter who is hitting lower than .200 then the whole minor system is really not properly run.

    exactly what i was saying earlier.. this organization is completely fubar since GMS and Stick arent part of it. Jeter is actually the future hope.. the current Stein’s are a disgrace and most certainly not capable of what it takes to be in baseball.. George would be ashamed of whats happening.. and its not just the current team, its everything that has been neglected for years all hitting them at once.. coupled with their own horrible mistakes like the Arod deal, not taking any chances, not signing chapmin,cespedies,puig,darvish.. look how great CMW is pitching now, just another spotlight on this inept bunch of spoiled brats destroying the legacy! i can go on and on..

    At least if they did something stupid we would have something else to talk about besides the woeful state of this team.

    Hans Davenport…don’t you understand pathos?

  20. jacksquat June 29th, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Dear Yankees,

    You suck.

    Do something. Now.

    Sincerely,
    JS

    P.S. Don’t do something stupid.

    And Kentucky University is sponsored by a shoe company. The Board of Trustees works through an arrangement with a sponsor because the sponsor wants to advertise their new merchandise (the recruit) in front of a national audience of college age students and young aspiring viewers who want the best shoes for their game. It’s the first commercial in a series of many. Many of these kids are millionaires before they sign on with a school, through shoe companies. Shoe companies sponsor networks that give deals to major schools – they basically run college basketball.

    Sponsors want HR in baseball as well, thus IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor).

    It’s the new drug.

    It’s being done and not being detected.

    If George were alive…he’d be having a heart attack right now.

    And deservedly so. He created the system that birthed this garbage team. Quick fixes, lost draft picks for free agents, farm system bare. It was GS. He was a bag of wind that entertained the fans.

    Oh and Goldman Sachs is engineering a plan to stick the insurance companies with Alex Rodriguez’ contract. If there’s one group of people who can stick it to the insurance companies, it’s the bankers.

    The stuff about Alex’s doctor and Yankee team doctors not being on the same page is sheer theatrics.

    It’s Kabuki.

    The distance between them is a mirage. They (team doctors and Alex’s private doctor) will come together and rubber stamp Arod’s request to medically retire. Arod’s doctor will get a nice payout as will an ambitious man at the insurance company looking for a golden parachute.

    And the team is not being sold.

    Back to pot.

  28. igotid88 June 29th, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    When does Montero come off the dl? We should try to get him back. Is it possible?

  29. bruceb June 29th, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    I was waiting for that one, Hans :)

  30. fantasygame101 June 29th, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    do nothing and do not make the playoff or trade cano for mlb ready prospect and not make the playoff? cashman will choose the first.

  31. Jesus Bustero June 29th, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    I would trade Cano for Hanley Ramirez.

    Expand the deal if they’re willing to include Hughes, Chamberlain and Joc Pederson

  32. Captain Clutch June 29th, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    I think a bad trade is definitely coming. Hal and Levine will feel like they have to over pay for someone to get fans into the seats for the rest of the season. Either it will be 1 good prospect for a free agent after this year or 2-3 good prospects for for a good but not great player. I would rather they do nothing instead of something really stupid.

  33. Jerkface June 29th, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    New York has won just 12 of their last 32 games while being outscored 143-100.

  34. NYY_Girl_Penny June 29th, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    One thing about George that I miss is that he was able to make sure he got a player he wanted when they weren’t even available… he’d call up other owners and be like, “I want so-and-so and you are gonna trade him too me tonight, what’s your price?” He commanded the ship and made the unthinkable happen (some good some bad) point is he could do it.. Lee would never have went to Phillies, he’d have been in NY with a single call from George..

    If you look at Gardner you’d see just how mess up this team is, Garnder’s instinct’s are terrible for the legs he has he should be as close to an automatic SB since Henderson, but we don’t have the right coaches to take natural talent and build on it, instead we take a small guy like Gardner, confuse the heck out of him and attempt to make him a HR power hitter.. for those that can’t see these type of things happening clear as day constantly I feel sorry for you because you can’t see what’s right in front of your face… The team in April showed hunger, happiness and a lot of promise.. instead they were all pushed to be HR power hitters yet again because not a single coach on this team knows how to exploit natural talent, instead our coaches treat them as if they are still training PED power in their prime.. it’s such a mess starting with MBA Hal who has not a clue about what he is doing, he even was quoted as saying, “Running a ballclub is no different from running a McDonald’s or any other business”..

    If Stick was in charge (which he shoulda been) or had a successor that knew baseball like he did, it still be the Yankees with pride, now we are the Yankees who bottom feed and hope to catch magic because nobody respects us anymore… we are all about pay me my money now !!! When Andy, Mo and Jeter’s integrity are gone… it will even be worse than this.. I just hope that Jeter somehow figures out how to buy the NYY from them and right this ship, it’s our only hope.. dead serious!

  35. bruceb June 29th, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    They’re not making the playoffs this year whether they trade Cano or not…so no in any kneejerk reactions.

  36. Pat M. June 29th, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    Hanley Rameriez has been on a tear since coming of the DL….Hitting some very long and impressive dingers as well…..

  37. fantasygame101 June 29th, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    when things were not going as expected, the royals fire their hitting coach. That is the royals. The Yankees on the other hand does nothing. When things are not going good, you shake things up to send messages.

  38. ron June 29th, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    There were many years when the Yankees stunk under the boss,and baseball has changed with the new cba.

    The Yankees can still outspend most teams,but with more,and more teams getting tv deals,more teams can approach their payroll,or match it.
    The Yankees have to change the way they do business,but still spend the max of 189,and more,if they reset it.
    I say trade everybody,and get a few 1st rd draft picks by stinking so much,then spend like nuts.
    Then we will have some top picks,keep our own prospects,get more by trading players,and give qualifying offers to everyone to get more picks.
    We can sign a few free agents to stay competitive.

  39. Madrugador June 29th, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Agonizing?!

  40. jacksquat June 29th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    Are the Dodgers giving up?

    They’re only 5.5 back and have won 7 of their last 10.

    Mouseketeer’s then?

    speaking of McDonald’s.

    OldSchoolYankeeFan June 29th, 2013 at 9:54 pm
    Hankflorida-you must be one of those die hard Tampa Bay fans . Oh wait-that’s a contradiction of terms,

    I am a snow bird who missed most of the Yankee games when I am in Florida for April and part of May. I was looking forward to coming up here to watch the hitless wonders win games as they did in the early part of the season. I guess I jinxed my teams, Yankees, Knicks and Rangers, once I got up North. I can’t wait to get back South for the sake of my New York Giants.

  44. ron June 29th, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Hanley with another hr.

  45. austinmac June 29th, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    Murphy was 4-6 tonight. Fernando Martinez has been killing the ball since picked up by the Yankees. A downside was DePaula getting shelled.

  46. Hans Davenport June 29th, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    bruceb June 29th, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    Yes, Which of course we agree what is exactly George would do. :)

  47. jacksquat June 29th, 2013 at 10:52 pm

    Don’t like how George did it?

    Go route for the Royals, or Twins or whatever.

    At least George spent money to win, and would add if necessary. He either a) really wanted to win and/or b) understood that winning is what draws fans and makes money.

    Yes, of course everyone knows that he made mistakes. But I’d still rather have him as the owner than most if not all others, including his sons.

  48. Captain Clutch June 29th, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    I think it’s funny how now that the Yanks are losing every night and with all of the Arod issues the Yes network is showing Jeter’s 3,000 special like every night now. It’s definitely done on purpose almost to make Yankees fans remember Jeter and hope that we keep watching.

  49. RhapsodyInBlue June 29th, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    Hans why don’t you and your sock puppet bruceb go off somewhere and elope.

  50. Hans Davenport June 29th, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    What on earth are 12 year old kids doing up at this hour?

  51. I Am Winning June 29th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    All Star break is approaching and the Yankees are only 4 games vet .500. Embarrassing.

  52. RhapsodyInBlue June 29th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    Only trolls would know.

  53. Hans Davenport June 29th, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    Jeter’s 3,000 special like every night now.

    Got to admit that was a magical, storybook of a game.

  54. RhapsodyInBlue June 29th, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    Troll feast here.

    Good night.

  55. blake June 29th, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Lol at that game tonight.

    Only positive to me was Nova….I thought he did well and that’s really the most sink I’ve seen from him in two years. He threw strikes and had that heavy 2 seamer that he succeeded with in 2011. Good to see that…..the rest was just pitiful

  56. theREALkevin June 29th, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Gardners on steroids LOL

  57. theREALkevin June 29th, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Right

  58. Hans Davenport June 29th, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    No, I liked the way Topping and Webb did it. They stayed out of the way and let a true genius like George Weiss run things. Steinbrenner is a midget alongside those guys. No offense meant to any little people.

  59. I Am Winning June 29th, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    When the Yankees signed Wells, the Yankees threw the $189m cap out of the window. I haven’t looked at the numbers, but is it even possible for the Yankees to be under that number? Even if the Yankees let go of ARod, Tex, and Wells, they will still get paid and cost them a luxury tax. On top of that, they can’t sign Cano, can’t resign Jeter, Granderson will be let go. And we would be at the $189 threshold, meaning minor league players would fill those spots. So basically we will have a top 2 payroll, and a bottom 2 team? It doesn’t mean sense financially, or logistically. No way the Yankees will keep revenue high and fans in the seats with the payroll being under $189.

    I agreed with Hal at first, $189 was possible, but with our current circumstances, it just isn’t possible anymore. Maybe in 5 years the Yankees can get it under whatever the cap is at that time, but for now, it is not possible to be competitive with that payroll.

  60. Ed Whitson June 29th, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    You call that chipping away ??? WTF ?

  61. blake June 29th, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    “When the Yankees signed Wells, the Yankees threw the $189m cap out of the window. ”

    Not really…..he costs basically nothing for 2014 because of the way the money was structured for the trade.

    It’s certainly possible for them to get under…..getting under and being any good though is the trick and I’m not sure that’s actually possible

  62. Jerkface June 29th, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    The Yankees will have around 60-80 million to spend in 2014, they can get players. Probably not enough though.

  63. I Am Winning June 30th, 2013 at 12:13 am

    Basically in 2014 their payroll will be 109-129?

    What large contracts are over by than?

    Obviously that isn’t including Cano. Excluding Granderson. Who else?
