TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Stop me if you’ve heard this before: It’s hot. Like, really hot.

UMPIRES: HP Dana DeMuth, 1B Angel Hernandez, 2B Paul Hauert, 3B Doug Eddings

CENTRAL PERK: The Yankees have gone 14-3 (.824) against the AL Central this season, the second-best record by a Major League team against a division within their league.

HOLD ONTO YOUR HATS: Eduardo Nunez is 3 for 6 with a run scored, two sac flies and three RBI in two games since returning from his rehab assignment.

WELCOME ABOARD: On Sunday, the Yankees acquired first baseman Travis Ishikawa off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles. He appeared in six games with the Orioles this season, hitting .118 (2 for 17) with one RBI before being designated for assignment on June 29.

(I’ll be updating what’s going on in the game here every so often, but I’ll be much more active on Twitter. Follow me @vzmercogliano to join in the conversation!)

UPDATE, 7:34 p.m.: The Royals have taken a 2-0 lead thanks to a Butler homer and an RBI double from Lough in the second. Hughes allowed three extra base-hits in that inning.

UPDATE, 8:18 p.m.: What a scene here in the Bronx. It started downpouring in the top of fourth, but only lasted about a minute or so. It started again in the bottom of the fourth, which prompted the umpires to call for a rain delay. The grounds crew came out to cover the field, but since it was raining so hard, they were only able cover half of the field before the water weighed it down. They had to completely reverse and try over, which the crowd seemed to get a kick out of. A totally bizarre scene here in the Bronx, and now we’re officially in a rain delay.

UPDATE, 8:50 p.m.: It was just announced that the game is supposed to restart at 9:10. The grounds crew has been working vigorously on the field, but it’s still looking pretty sloppy. Tough night for the crew.

    Go Huuuughes! Go Yanks!

  2. kd July 8th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    to me, getting jeter back is really going to help. even if he hits .250, leadership in the filed. he’s the captain after all

  3. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    Comnsnse, bipolar is extreme mood swings. I honestly dont think I have bipolar, my mood swings are usually due to sports or other actual occurrences, so they can be explained, it’s not like my mood changes for no reason. . OCD references obsessions and compulsions. For example, I am obsessed with sports. I tell myself that superstitions are stupid, I say Im not going to do them anymore, but I am compelled to follow through with them anyway. Depression speaks for itself.

    The Yanks need to hit more including HRs. As far as hiting goes:

    1.) SS has improved from Nix to Nunez. Soon it will improve again with Jeter (also a RH DH)!
    2.) 3B is still a black hole. Cruz, Adams, Nix (DL) & Musty (DL) could help & Alex may be back in August. I believe Musty comes up soon & Gonzalez gets dropped.
    3.) Grandy will be back too in August.
    4.) The NYY pitching has been great & full of depth. Given that the offense doesn’t need a full upgrade to win more games.
    5.) I think with more depth in Hitting then the guys like Wells, Hafner & Overbay who are exposed playing so much can rest/heal & be more productive with the additions.
    6.) Almonte has helped. Perhaps Ishikawa will too.

    What has bothered me was having a game that is close & looking at a bench or Gonzalez, Romine & Cruz or equivalent to PH. To me that is uncalled for. RH bats of Musty, Nunez, Jeter & soon to be ARod will help the Yanks to see more RH Pitchers which is a strength currently if the Yanks have one offensively.

    Anyone else use mlb.tv on a mobile device while traveling? I’m in Atlanta trying to watch on my kindle… mlb.tv detects that in a zone that is blacked out! I’m relagated to the audio feed again… frustrating!!!

  7. Rich in NJ July 8th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Winning the first game after ending a winning streak is sort of important.

  8. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Winning any game is important. They all count the same.

    Hey RayVT. Been a long time. How are you?

  9. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    let’s go yankees!

  10. Rich in NJ July 8th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    “Winning any game is important. They all count the same.”

    Sometimes, but not always.

  11. chicken_stanley July 8th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    Good inning… lets start our half off with a bang

  12. kd July 8th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    watching on-line at work. how does phil look?

  13. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    I understand Adams needing to play everyday. What does Not fit is Overbay, and Ishi both LH (1B), and Hafner LH (Man without a position).

  14. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    How many Yankees will get by Guthrie pitches tonight?

  15. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    What’s the record for guys named Travis in the same lineup?

    This Travis could be available for cheap, Mr. Cashman:

  16. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Worst Yankee broadcasts are Kay and Flaherty. Flaherty is just a Kay clone, and he’s just as stupid. Add onto that he has the mentality of a backup catcher, it’s impossible to listen to him.

  17. NYY_Girl_Penny July 8th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    I had a dream that Paul Goldschmidt was playing 1B for us, but he looked like Votto it was real confusing. Can you believe that we have not developed one all-star OF since uhm… ?? Can you believe that it’s been over a decase since we’ve developed a single good in-house player… Don’t say Cano, they tried to trade him 2-3x thinking he was a nobody. He matured into a very good player.. Well, what can you say, do we just but someone else’s junk and hope that it becomes a valuable antique ? I don’t think that philosophy is working well.

    Tex would barely even help this team
    Jeter would help this team but he’s gotta be feeling the age..
    Arod will have good games and bad games
    Granderson will help some too..

    out of those 4 players I love watching Jeter, perhaps it is more sentimental at this point but I still think he can give us 2 solid years.. regardless what the other 3 contribute/improve us.. I just do not enjoy watching them play.. I really don’t, they stress me out more than provide me satisfaction and I am sorry to say that but since PEDs testing got serious, Arod is worthless, Tex too.. and Granderson and his .232 and 200+ strike outs are so painful to watch even with his 40HR.

    I do not like watching a team swing for HR’s every AB and live and die by the video/stats book.

    I love how George Brett recently said, “Stop depending on the computer, the videos and reading stats book.. just go out and have fun and play hard!”

    That’s the typr of baseball I miss for the most part and in April I thought just maybe we had that gutsy, thrilling magic.. I can’t help but think the coaches and manager managed the “got out and have fun” gamer’s out of these guys! Who the heck is trying to turn Brett Gardner into a HR hitter ??? Is it him, the coaches, the tempting short porch?? WTF, the guy is text book just get on base type of guy.. I don’t like being negative anymore than you guys want to read my negativity which is why I have been staying off the blog since May… but I am sorry, there has just been so many things wrong with my NYY’s that there’s no way to not be negative.. it’s rotten in the Bronx, deny it all you want.. focus on the positive.. I’m not the type of guy to say “Oh look a major tornado just tore apart our town, but at least the Denny’s is still open, yeah.. I’ll just focus on the fact that Denny’s is open.. what tornado?”

    That’s what it feels like.. too me, wish it wasn’t.

  18. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Maybe Nick can grab himself a gelato after a Hughes win tonight.

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 8th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    GO YANKS!!! GO PHILS!!! GO MS!!!

    Will be in and out. Multitasking in order!

  20. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    vote roberston/puig!

  21. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    every game we don’t get perfect gamed calls for a celebration.

  22. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Where is Nunez? Dumb

  23. Triple Short of a Cycle July 8th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Can this team ever score runs against someone not on Minn?

  24. Rich in NJ July 8th, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    “This Travis could be available for cheap, Mr. Cashman:”

    He’s kind of old.

  25. NYY_Girl_Penny July 8th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    I am not saying that Grandy or Tex were on PED’s, please don’t misconstrue what I say.. With that said, now that I think of it.. Tex wouldn’t surprise me at all.. doesn’t take a genius to look at stats and see who plummeted and deal with a lot of health issues after MLB became very serious about PED’s testing.

  26. Rich in NJ July 8th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Shiii

    Dinner.

  27. Triple Short of a Cycle July 8th, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Well so much for this game

  28. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Nunez not in, but you can guarantee if Nix wasnt on the DL, he’d be in.

  29. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Vote Robertson / Freeman

  30. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    I think it’s pretty clear that Tex was on PEDs, and also is affected by the shift and his refusal to alter batting approach.

  31. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Nunez should be playing everyday till Jeet comes back.

  32. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Billy Butler is a goooood hitter and that oppo stroke would be perfect for our park.

  33. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Hughes off to a ragged start tonight.

  34. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Girardi: “Nix is proven veteran. His mediocrity should play everyday, not a kid with upside like Nunez.”

  35. ZachA July 8th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    After Cano in the lineup:

    Hafner .224 BA
    Wells .233 BA
    Ishikawa .118 BA
    Cruz .140 BA
    Gonzalez .212 BA
    Romine .136 BA

    Hughes has gotta be sharp.

  36. Triple Short of a Cycle July 8th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Who the hell are these “new” people on this board?

  37. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Nunez comes back, hits well, and Immediately is grabbin’ some bench. Thanks Girardi.

  38. NYY_Girl_Penny July 8th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    —–

    Yeah, agreed. After all he puts up 30/100 even if 25/75 are meaningless stat padding hits when we don’t need them.

    I wish there was a “clutch” stat.

  39. Shame Spencer July 8th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Eff…

  40. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Does Kay ever shut up. He acts like he’s talking to a national audience. Like the Butler “snub” by Cano hasn’t been drubbed often enough? We know, we heard. Don’t need you to give the blow by blow.

  41. Triple Short of a Cycle July 8th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Funny how a team with a worse offense then the Yanks can jump out to an early 2-0 lead

  42. joecembrale July 8th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    It would be better if Kay had something of value tp say.

  43. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    It’s always the Michael Kay Show.

  44. cofuzz July 8th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Don’t make it one of those starts, Hughes.
    Stop it now!

  45. deltajoe July 8th, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    0-2 count for a double. Not good

  46. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    The early lead = Hughes

  47. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    “More power to those Yankee fans who are not derailed by all these injuries and look forward to riding the baseball pony in October.”

    Thanks Hank! We’re indeed not derailed. We have faith by the bushels-full and all who truly know us know we never lose the faith!

  49. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Triple, KC has some hitters, some young live bats.

  50. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    The old saying goes, “having a child changes you.” It hasnt changed Kay a bit. Kay is still an arrogant fool.

  51. jlyanks85 July 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    If the Yankees can’t at least go 5-2 at home against the teams they play they week, they just need to pack it in and call it a season.

  52. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Gets ahead 0-2 and ends up throwing 6 or 7 pitches

  53. joecembrale July 8th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    Is it true that Robinson Cano has replaced his father in the home run day with Phil Hughes?

  54. kd July 8th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    too bad phelps is on the dl…. hughes needs to be done as a yankee

  55. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Why do the Yankees continue holding onto Kevin Long? Aside from the reason that the Yankees organization is horribly mismanaged.

    Why does YES Network, Kay primarily, refer to Long as a great hitting coach?

  56. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    jeter reached on an error in the first, went first to third on a single and got stranded there. like to see him first-to-thirding it.

  57. NYY_Girl_Penny July 8th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    So obvious .. nice try. I don’t mean to pop your birthday balloon, but the fish aren’t biting tonight.

  58. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Yanks have had trouble scoring runs, so Girardi sits Nunez?

    —————————

    Who have been awful for the most part this year. Hosmer has been coming around lately but even Butler has regressed

  61. Jesus Bustero July 8th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Because Long has artfully brown-nosed the two hitters ownership is most invested in – Tex and Arod.

  62. Triple Short of a Cycle July 8th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

  63. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    Triple,

    I’ll take Butler right now. Park him behind Cano. Robi will see some strikes.

  64. RayVT July 8th, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:07 pm
    Hello Michael! I’m doing okay. New work #. Trying to stay positive about the Yanks chances.

  65. jlyanks85 July 8th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Yanks really can’t afford to bite the bullet in what should be a easy week for them. Especially right after the break we get Boston and Texas on the road.

  66. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Brutal swing.

  67. Triple Short of a Cycle July 8th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    I’ll take Butler right now. Park him behind Cano. Robi will see some strikes.

    ——————————————

    Oh don’t get me wrong I’d love to have him.

  68. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Every team that Bostonians would hate is woefully mismanaged. Yankees, Lakers, Canadiens, Jets.

  69. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Hey Ray! Glad you’re doing well! You really shouldn’t get your hopes up. Just think back to how the offense took a nap through the ALCS last year and how the offense is more meager now than then.

  70. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Oh don’t get me wrong I’d love to have him.
    ///

    I’d take a few of their young guys.

  71. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    That should have been the 3rd out

  72. Locke July 8th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Oh gosh.

  73. Hassey July 8th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    I wonder how Hughes feels about pitching to his new teammates…

  74. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Billy Butler running, stupid decision by Cruz to flip that, stupid decision by Cano to bare hand it.

  75. RayVT July 8th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    LOL! You are probably right, but I keep expecting things to change. Last year everyone was hurt during the playoffs. LOL! This year they may all be well during the playoffs & rested. Provided the make the playoffs it could be interesting. Plus who knows what rental the Yanks may get come < Sept 1st!

  76. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    Adam Warren took time out of his day?

  77. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Hughes was hoping for that type of swing by Gonzalez in the 2nd inning

  78. luis July 8th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Nick,

    I think he is the official Office boy of the team… He is doing some errands for Mr G

  79. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    wonder what kind of odds i could get in vegas on bailey pulling a van der meer tonight….

  80. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    im guessing i’d stand a much better chance on that bailey bet if he were pitching in ebbits field tonight…

  81. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Ys Guy, we’ve gotten email confirmation from randy l. that he never posted as “Tin Cup”, so you and Tar can huddle up and decide when you’d like to honor the terms of your bet.

  82. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    One of the more recent signs of Yankees mismanagement… the Red Sox game on Sunday Night Baseball that we delayed (during which time there was no rain) the start, then started the game, allowing MLB to end the game in the 6th inning due to rain. Rather than deciding to just postponing the game, like they should have done.

    We could be back 2 games in the loss column right now, as opposed to 4, if we had made the correct decision.

  83. Dumper Pumper Jr July 8th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Can’t win with 4 thru 9 averaging .180

  84. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    If the Yankees don’t score by the 5th. Joe should put in Nunez and Overbay

  85. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    np nick. whoever we is. tar and i can settle it up when we’re on together.

    you had no part in that bet as i recall.

  86. NYY fan in NH July 8th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    Looks like bad Hughes today.. The inconsistency continues

  87. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    “We” would be the people who either received or read the email from randy. Tar was not one of those people, so I’m reporting the news to you, one of the parties involved in the bet.

  88. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    These umpires are trying to get this through 5 innings, so MLB can screw us again with another home rain shortened-loss.

  89. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Looks like bad Hughes today.. The inconsistency continues
    ===============================

    No – actually the inconsistency IS the consistency…so disappointing

  90. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    NYY fan in NH July 8th, 2013 at 8:05 pm
    Looks like bad Hughes today.. The inconsistency continues
    ——

    He had a couple missed locations that they took advantage of and went with the pitch. Instead of trying to pull. But he’s doing better so far.

  91. AndyFTM July 8th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Yankees have 4 hitters in the lineup currently on the interstate…are you serious???

  92. luis July 8th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Earlier I was wondering why they sat Nunez… Now I understand… Guthrie has a nag of hitting people, not the best control

    It is too early to call this a bad hughes outing I think

  93. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    so tar and i had a bet which you were no part of. i challenged you but you flat out refused to take it.

    so now you got an email, but neither of the parties in the bet have, but you’re doing what?

    im a little confused….

  94. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Crap rain delay

  95. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Idiot umpire.

  96. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    It is too early to call this a bad hughes outing I think
    ——————

    He’s sitting on the wrong side of the tracks as of now….somebody better kick him !

  97. luis July 8th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    That weather looks ugly

  98. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    Crap. That’s it for Hughes, who had a good inning.

  99. luis July 8th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Oh man they can’t even get the tarp on the field. Too wet and too heavy. Haven’t even covered the mound yet.

  101. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Depends how long the delay is Hughes could still come back. But looks like it will be a Warren night.

  102. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Good grief… yes, Ys Guy, you do seem to be a little confused.

    I didn’t want to be part of the bet because the issue at question was a diversion from your original point, the one I challenged and which I think you should still retract.

    Nonetheless, I was the recipient of an email from Pat M, who heard directly from randy l. that randy never posted as “Tin Cup”. So now that I have this information, I’m passing it on to you, one of the parties in the bet and the person who made the original false statements about randy l.

    Does that clear it all up for you?

  103. UnKnown July 8th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Now they are pulling it back off again because they can’t get it on. This is all on the Royals TV network.

  104. luis July 8th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Pulling the tarp off again… Maybe Hughes returns

  105. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    tar and i will settle up. if i lose the bet, ill go off for a week, np. (i only posted 3 comments in the last 3 days as it is, so it would not be a problem) and im sure tar will honor his side of the bet when/if that time comes.

    you have no part to play here as you declined the bet.

  106. UnKnown July 8th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Is anyone else watching this clown show right now with the tarp? Now they are putting it back on again after they dumped the water. And now they are getting it back over the infield and the crowd is letting them have it. Bronx cheer at it’s finest.

    Cunningham? heads ground crew dude is spent.

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

    He will relinquish a homer every now and then… But from what I saw, he was settling down… He k’d the last batter with a nice slider… I think the problem is that many people are dissapointed that he hasn’t reached his ceiling… But once you understand that he is a back/mid rotation SP, you’ll cut him some slack… He will have more clunkers down the road, the important thing is that he will give you 60% of good to excellent outings… That has a ton of value.

  120. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 8:27 pm

  131. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    “i offered you a bet. you declined. that seems to indicate that you believe i was wright or at least were scared that i was.”

    No, you are incorrect. I didn’t believe you were right and I wasn’t scared that you were right; I believed that you might be intoxicated, but even more to the point I believed that the question you wanted to bet on was a diversion from the real and false assertion you made that randy had been using one screen name during multiple years and had then changed that screen name once the Yanks won the World Series in 2009.

    That original assertion was basically at attack on randy’s integrity here on the blog. Since randy can’t defend himself here right now, I elected to do it for him, free of charge. randy doesn’t have to thank me and I doubt he will, but I’m doing it anyway, just for the sake of historic accuracy. I would do it for you as well, should circumstances warrant it.

    Everyone makes mistakes, for whatever reason. I sure have. The question is, what do you do when you find out you were wrong? Do you admit it? Do you change the subject? Do you stick your head in the sand?

    You were wrong about randy. Why not just admit it? The apology to him would then be optional.

    As for the bet, I would pass on relevant information to settle it either way. Jerkface already settled it, by the way, so there was no need to wait for randy to answer Pat M’s email.

    LOL! In any case it is a testament to how they view Guthrie that they bench a player to protect him from being hit again.

    It’s only 2-0, I think we can and will comeback if given the chance, especially if we get to feast from the lousy Royals middle relief…And Nunez back on the game, since Guthrie won’t be pitching ;)

    Locke,

    It varies from team to team and it depends on pitch counts, age and the amount of time sitting in the dugout… I would say it has to be more than 40 minutes… It takes about 30 min when a team has a rally and most times pitchers go out again, unless it is in the late innings, I think

    you on the other hand, once again declined the bet. now you’re trying as hard as you can to get back into it.

    as for changing my s.n. as i said before, i started out here in 2007 as i miss bernie. then i changed to chien-ming vase (formerly i miss bernie)” because we used to be allowed to add a ‘tag’ to the end of our screennames. i did the same when i changed to Y’s guy.

    after nick turned down the bet several times, tar took the bet. so i said i’d take randy’s word as the final arbiter of the bet because i know he’d never lie.

    as i said the night i made the bet, i thought randy posted as tin cup but that everybody knew it was him and he made no attempt to hide it. and i said i miss randy posting and look forward to him returning.

    then i said that i’d let randy be the final arbiter of whether i win or not bacause he’d never lie.

    now nick, not a party to the bet he declined several times says i owe randy an apology.

    how is this attacking randy’s credibility?

    i wouldnt even give it this much time but for the rain delay.

    i will settle up with tar when the opportunity presents itself, i have no problem if i would have to leave for a week because im off here for days or weeks at a time anyway.

    now thats all i will say about my bet with TAR as NICK is not a party to it.

    Will Hughes be able to come back out after an hour? Will suck if he loses the game if the Yankees don’t at least tie or if Warren makes the game out of reach.
    ////

    I sure hope not. He should not come back, and I doubt he does.

    He’s been unlucky tonight. That Butler HR was on a late, wild swing and that other hit was on the chalk. He had a real good final inning.
    ////

    Jeter looked pretty smooth playing that chopper and seemed to get down the line well. Very good to see!
    ——-
    He had 3 good innings out 4. And the 1 wasn’t that bad.

  185. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    the quote was “… maybe there’s a reason…”

    Missed the train to get to the clubhouse for the pre-game meeting – wasn’t privvy to the reasons…but I’m sure it wasn’t :

    “hey – he did OK the last 2 games – let’s sit him…”

  186. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Nick in SF,

    That sure is wishful thinking. Much better than the alternative(injured) though.

  187. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    Did Alex play today?

  188. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    Yanks’ offense has managed one sac fly in the last 14 innings. As Paul Weller once sang, “That’s Entertainment.”

  189. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    Great, Ys Guy, we’re done talking about the bet.

    Now what about your original post in which you spoke of randy attacking Cashman for years and then changing his screen name after the 2009 postseason.

  190. comnsnse July 8th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    Nicky boy, there’s a rain delay so be a good sport and be the foil once in awhile!

    Graciously!

  191. Jerkface July 8th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Ys Guy,

    Come on, dude, you started this whole thing with a paragraph about how Randy killed cashman so much that he had to CHANGE HIS NAME once the Yankees won the 09 WS.

    This is the post Nick took issue with and what you continue to dodge despite 2 people providing evidence to the contrary:

    “tin cup used to kill cashman.

    from the time i came in here he just killed cashman. through the end of 08 and for most of 09 he just killed them every day.

    those of us who maybe thought the guy was ok had to put up with it constantly.

    then the ’09 postseason happened.

    then he changed his name.”

    All of it is true though except for the last part, which is also the focus of your bet.

  192. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    i said the same thing about nunez. everybody thinks they know how every player feels and what’s going on with them in and out of the clubhouse. nobody here has any idea why nunez is sitting, he is just off the d.l. even if girardi said nuney is sitting to rest him it doesnt mean that’s the case and even if he pinch hits it doesnt mean there wasnt a good reason to sit him.

  193. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Oh, disagree Y’s Guy. Why wouldn’t Randy lie?

    Nick is a party to everything on here. He is the blog po-po.

  197. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Damn would have liked for Hughes to go 1 more inning. Stupid rain

  198. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Now Jerk is getting involved. Why is it Jerk and Nick are always in bed together? Is it possible that Jerkface is Nick’s 2nd handle?

    Has anyone ever seen Nick attack Jerkface for anything, such as his abuse towards a certain lady on this site?

    OMG – thank you for the injection of reasonableness !!!

    (maybe Nunny has diarrhea….he could pinch hit – but may not perform too well on a popup tonite…so sit him….there’s an ‘idea’ on why he’s not starting.)

  202. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    Why would Nunez be in? Girardi’s gotta get guys days off and play those (lack of talent) veterans.

    Why is Hughes out of the game? Are we saving his arm for the world’s strongest man competition?

  205. LGY July 8th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Seems to me as if Nick was simply reporting some info the parties to the bet didn’t have access to.

    The convo went downhill from there because Y’s got cranky about losing said bet and lashed out at Nick, the messenger.

    Additionally, bet or no bet, in an open forum as this is Nick has the right to point out Y’s was wrong and push for an apology if he feels Randy’s integrity was called into question.

    Final Score

    Tar: 1-0
    Nick: 1-0
    Y’s: 0-2

  206. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Come on Warren keep it at 2

  207. Captain Clutch July 8th, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Warren has pitched like once in the last century. Tough spot for him but hopefully he can give them some good innings. He looks good so far.

  208. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Many moons ago, I thought that Nick was also LGY. So is it possible that Nick is also LGY and Jerkface? LGY and Jerkface are the 2 stat guys, and although Nick rarely discusses stats, he definitely IMO has the intelligence to be a numbers guy.

    Still not sure how he got duped by Eduardo Soborio, though. :lol:

  209. SoS July 8th, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    Does this mean warren won’t take grounders at first?

    Late fellas.

  210. luis July 8th, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    I am not saying that I am right or have an inside knowledge of what’s going on… But My theory does makes sense… Guthrie is a head hunter and they don’t want to risk another injury to Nunez… He is probably too valuable going forward considering our current roster construction..

  211. deltajoe July 8th, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    Cy Young back on the mound

  212. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    That’s a reasonably good guess !

  213. luis July 8th, 2013 at 9:22 pm

  214. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 8th, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    Ys Guy – I’m sure you’re noticing the apparition in the field pretending to be Vernon Wells, and continuing to hit.

    :lol:

  215. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    Hughes has gotten the “weaker” lineup his last 2 Yankee Stadium starts. Girardi was like “Why give him run support?”

  216. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    Ishikawa is probably wondering how he could possibly be wearing the Yankees pinstripes.

    Dont wonder, Travis, Cashman loves trash, thus he you’re on the team.

  217. Captain Clutch July 8th, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    The new guy looks really overmatched

  218. cofuzz July 8th, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    I watched Ishikawa play here in Fresno a few years back.
    Looks like he belongs back here…

  219. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    At least Hughes’ game ERA of 4.50 lowered his overall ERA for the year. There’s a positive to every bad Hughes start.

  220. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    Paul Simon is in the building.

    Will he be playing the Sounds of Silence afterwards in honor of our bats?

  221. Ys Guy July 8th, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    i did post that . then when nick said he thought i was being accusatory i posted,
    ” Ys Guy July 5th, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    i came here in 08 and randy was tin cup. i was ‘i miss bernie, btw.
    he changed his s.n. after that but i believe everybody knew that, maybe i was wrong but i knew.
    he didnt keep it a secret in any way.

  222. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    We’d better off throwing the corpse of Derek Boogaard out there to the plate. His strike zone would be much smaller and make it less likely for the opposing pitchers to throw strikes. Somebody could be designated to drag his rotting corpse around the bases.

    6 for 14 in July with only 1K. Hopefully he can keep the hits coming.

  224. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    6 guys in the lineup are hitting under .240! And 3 under .140!!! I mean seriously, give me a bat and 500k a year I could get a lucky hit every 10 at bats.

  225. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Thank you Jerkface and LGY for injecting a little common sense into this discussion.

  226. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Does it now appear as if Y’s Guy is the victor, because Randy had changed his name, from Tin Cup to Randy?

  227. Captain Clutch July 8th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    The ump can’t wait for the game to end, now everything is a strike.

    ————–

    FWIW, randy has asked me directly to let you know that he never posted as Tin Cup. Randy and I have our own special form of communication that very closely resembles the Bat Phone from the original television show.

    I assume he let me know just so there would be corroboration with Nick/Pat M’s initial report.

  237. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Or perhaps Bridge Over Troubled Water especially for the LoHud blog?

    then i posted:

  253. LGY July 8th, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    There are many reasons why Nick and I are obviously not the same person.

    However, even a person with average IQ would be able to recognize we post from different time zones and eliminate the possibility there.

  254. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    I dont really Jerkface is the same as Nick. Jerkface will one day become the 40 year old Virgin.

    Nick travels the world and is culturally diverse, probably has no problem getting laid. I am convinced that LGY is either the same as Nick, or Nick’s bro Pedro.

    ——-

    I was just poking some fun at him.

    But “quality start” is another term for “so-so start.” Averging 3 runs in 6 innings is as bad a start as it is a good one. 4.50 ERA will not bring the big bucks not will it make anyone even a #3 starter on a postseason caliber team. Correct me if Im wrong but I don’t think I’m indicating anything ground breaking here.

    To me, a start that isn’t good, falls in the bad category, while others (understandably) have some middle ground. It’s all personal opinion, and if you want to consider this quality, perfectly fine by me.

    Post from different time zones… How does one recognize that? One posts at 3am EST and the other doesnt. It doesn’t take much effort to post at different times to try throw people off the scent.

    And Nick’s bro is on the East coast, iirc. Not sure on that one, been 3 years since I checked. So that could explain the difference in time zones.

    according to ‘sources’ randy confirmed that you won our bet. i have no argument with that and since i dont know when randy would be on here to confirm that, ill just agree that you won and take my medicine.

    not only won’t i be on for a week, i pretty much take a baseball vacation most all star weeks, so i’ll more likely be off till the yankees first post all star break game, which i believe is next friday vs. the red socks.

    btw, i still say they win this game.

    4-8 for Hughes on a game he wasn’t allowed to finish because of the rain. And the 3.06 of run support which is skewed a bit because of the 11 runs in KC and 7 they scored for him last week.

  276. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    Nicky boy, you can do a little better than IQ and ageist references.

    Get into a darkened room, they say it stimulates creativity and innovation.

    It does not however apply to the dimmed areas of your brain!

    As for jd9d, I would have thought that natural selection would have one day eliminated cretins but alas it appears blogs have become a haven for them.

  280. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    The goal is clear, to have you come to Nick’s aid any time he’s involved in a disagreement of some sort. Or vice versa. Just find one instance of Nick and “LGY” disagreeing… You won’t. Either that’s because you’re the same person, or you’re his brother Pierre.

    My fake psychiatrist? I never said I had a psychiatrist. A LMHC, licensed mental health counselor, who does the talking, and my nurse practioner, who prescribes the pills.

    I never said I was misunderstood. I said I suffer from mental disease. I never said I was trying to better myself here, I said I originally came back to start anew, but the constant harassment turned me back into the destructive C R 9. Now Im here to release my anger rather than cause physical harm to others, because I couldnt survive a day in jail.

    Tar, that’s BS. I’m always honest with myself. I post people’s names, make stupid slurs, I have no problem getting banned or called out for it.

    I did those things because of the constant derision (more accurate word than harassment) by the likes of Shame Spencer… who is dumber than Aaron Hernandez.

    I did stay away from here for 2-3 years. Not an active choice to stay away, mainly because I did a lot of traveling and didnt have time for it. I had been getting better, up until the Boston Marathon, and how their city has since bandied about being the “STRONGEST CITY IN THE WORLD”

    Strongest city in the world, my sphincter. They lost 3 effing people, and they act as if it’s the worst terrorist attack or natural disaster to ever occur to any city in the world. It’s the same as Patriots fans not even giving a crap that a guy is dead, all they care about is that the Patriots name has been tarnished further.

    The Patriots brought this on themselves. Bill Belichick cheats on his wife, cheats the game of football, and preaches “Winning cures everything.” As long as Hernandez helped them win football games, it didnt matter what he did off the field. But you know who gets the blame, Urban Meyer, from 6 years ago. Not Bill Belichick, or Bob Kraft who slept with a woman 40 years his junior only weeks after his wife’s death.

    Sitting Overbay is fine he hasn’t had a day off in forever. But you can’t also sit Nunez and Stewart. Girardi has a bad habit of resting more than one guy in a game and it really doesn’t make any sense. With the lineup being so thin these things have to be planned out better.

    it’s so different now, passion and heartless yankees and the manager is a better politician than baseball manager.. his grunting laugh and blinking eyes are magical.. someone reminded him that he has to say what ownership wants him to say, and he will/does 100% of the time.. not a players manager, just ask anybody who was once managed by him.

    Since Girardi has been manager of the Yankees, he’s given guys a days off before a team off-day. He admittedly does it so he can get guys 2 days off in a row.

    Do you know how sickening that is. Just think about Cal Ripken (who defiinitely did PEDs, btw). Girardi’s got to get our guys 2 days off in a row.

    in the line-up without a doubt but I really think in the clubhouse as well.

    Nice play by Cruz

  376. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    Penny, Girardi is by the book. Except his book was last relevant in the 1950s

  377. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    Who cares that he made a nice play… the game’s already over.

  378. luis July 8th, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    That might be it

  379. ac1 July 8th, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    Tomorrow should look like this

    Gardner cf
    Ichiro rf
    Jeter dh
    Cano 2b
    Almonte lf
    Overbay 1b
    Nunez ss
    Cruz 3b
    Stewie c

    Anyone hear about that death in NYC today? #NEWYORKSTRONG

  382. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    This is disappointing, our chance of a comeback is near the negative mark at this point.

    I think “optimism” in the most current usage was watching that whole Wells at-bat and… you know.

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

    Expect a different result? ;)

  387. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    This Loss is ALL Girardi’s. Started with the starting lineup, and Now we got our 12th and 13th Chuckers sealing the deal. Thanks Joe.

  388. luis July 8th, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    Has Adams been option down?

  389. ac1 July 8th, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    This happens when you dont pitch him for a month….

  391. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    We have been beating the bad teams (apart from the Mets, of course).

    We all know the offense is below average but what I don’t understand is why they found it easier to score runs at Target Field than Yankee Stadium. Maybe it’s simply because the Twins have such lousy pitchers?

    Whatever the case, we’ve scored a grand total two runs in our last 19 innings. Perhaps they should rename this team the Bronx Bummers.

  392. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    luis July 8th, 2013 at 10:45 pm
    Locke,

    Not only those stats are sss, but he has been hurt for most of the season, including during those at bats.

    Upstate,

    In this roster, he is one of the most important players… As sad as that may sound

    =====================
    Very sad & pathetic…..to rely on him for anything is pretty meek.

    Maybe he’ll get a shot in the 9th to do something….hopefully !

    ….at least eventually he’ll do something

  393. UnKnown July 8th, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    Offensive issues has just cost this team to many wins this year. This whole game is different if we have 4 or 5 runs up on the board right now.

    “We all know the offense is below average but what I don’t understand is why they found it easier to score runs at Target Field than Yankee Stadium.”

    Well that’s because I was there. :grin: Just kidding obviously. I think the Yankees just really have the Twins number. Doesn’t seem to matter who is playing on the two teams. One set of uniforms always beats the other set.

  403. UnKnown July 8th, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    I think we were in 4th place already to start the day.

  404. ac1 July 8th, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    Why exactly did we bring up another lefty 1b?

  405. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    Well, it is Hope Week, Shame. Too many concerns with my own team to be worried about what the Sox do. Yesterday’s defeat was so deflating that I felt it was important to bounce back tonight.

  408. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    I can’t wait until the Red Sox start a Hope Week of their own. Guarantee they’ll get the national attention for it.

    Hope Week is the only thing this current Yankees regime does right. Astonished.

  409. blake July 8th, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    Bummed didnt get to see my boy Holland pitch in addition to being bummed and how bad the offense is

  410. igotid88 July 8th, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    Would this be considered a tough loss for Hughes? How does one have 9 quality starts and only 4 wins and not have a tough loss? How do they figure that out?

  411. UnKnown July 8th, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    The problem is the AL East is really starting to bunch up at the top. I don’t want to be trying to jump over 2 or 3 teams in August and September to win the division. Way to many variables going that route.

  412. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    Kay talking about the offense Not scoring for 2+ games. What the hell does he expect when Girardi trots out a batting order Minus several starters, yet continues to Include Hafner? Horrendous

  413. Shame Spencer July 8th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    Hey look at that, these guys are still alive..

  414. ac1 July 8th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    Seriously what good is jeter in aaa? We know he will hit. If they are worried about his leg id rather he hurts himself playing for us than the railraiders. Seriously.

  422. Hankflorida July 8th, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    During the Minnesota series last last week Cano hit a three home runs until Overbay hit one tonight to break the string of five homeless games. Flaherty just said after Almonte singled that having Cano up as the tying run means a great deal since this team does not have any other consistent home run hitter which would include Hafner or even Overbay. So what do the Royals do but walk Cano to put the the tying run on. What a big difference a year makes.

  423. Shame Spencer July 8th, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Would ya look at Luis and Stewie getting hits when they’re meaningless.

  430. yankeefeminista July 8th, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    luis, sounds like a plan. I will do airport duty and transport Unknown to the Bronx. (maybe even the thought of it is helping…). Runs, please!

  431. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    Chris Stewart – good job !!!

    Now here’s our best chance….

  432. DONNYBROOK July 8th, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    Overbay shoulda scored easily on that single. CF’er was giving away the run.

  433. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    A 500ft shot (just for good measure) would be nice right about now.

  436. J. Alfred Prufrock July 8th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Hankflorida,

    I don’t know if you saw my response to yours regarding optimism, but I want you to know I was not referring to your thoughts on being an optimistic Yankee fan as “hollow.”

    I was making a distinction between real optimism and what I consider the phony, self-serving, abuse of that term by others who post here, in order to troll fellow Yankee fans.

    I am sorry for the unfortunate misunderstanding.

  437. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    When the ball is caught at your ankles, probably a good idea not to swing, Nunez.

  438. UpState July 8th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    If Nunes hits a HR … 4+1 = 5…….5 ties it.

    NOT useless hits.

  439. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Nunez 1-19 with RIP. Thanks for coming.

  440. Nick in SF July 8th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Ok, Gardy, we know you have short-porch power.

    What the hell is 1-19 ???

    ///

    They showed highlights and he looked pretty slick fielding a chopper and then seemed fine busting it down the first-base line. Judging from that, he looks very close.

  452. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    Nunez rusty + Gardner out of form.

  453. Shame Spencer July 8th, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    .053

    Nunez is batting .053 with runners in scoring position.

  463. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    The good old days, we were almost guaranteed 4 runs a game, that’s a bad day. A regular day is about 6 runs, and a good streak is 10 runs for a week.

  464. I Am Winning July 8th, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    Bases loaded and no outs is when teams have us right where they want us…

  467. Shame Spencer July 8th, 2013 at 11:12 pm

  480. Rick in San Fernando July 8th, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Shame actually remarked something of value. That’s precisely why Zoilo will have his playing time cut when the regulars return, in favor of a guy like Wells. It’s the Yankees Way. The wrong way, but faster.

  481. bruceb July 8th, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Wasn’t even that good of a 9th inning tease. We’ll get em tomorrow (possibly).

  482. Tar July 8th, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Good try Zoo.

    At least they brought the tying run to the plate.
