Diamond vs. Yankees

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

WEATHER: The tarp came off the field about an hour ago. Still cloudy though. Could be some rain in our future.

UMPIRES: HP Lance Barksdale, 1B Vic Carapazza, 2B Gary Cederstrom, 3B Kerwin Danley

CAPTAIN SPEAKS: The Yankees issued this statement from Derek Jeter: “It’s frustrating. I don’t know what else you want me to say. I worked hard to get to the point of rejoining the team yesterday. It’s not how you draw it up, but hopefully I’ll be back out there soon and help this team win some games.”

50’s GRAND: With their win on Thursday, the Yankees reached the 50-win plateau prior to the All-Star break for the 13th time in the last 16 seasons (since 1998) and the sixth straight season (since 2008).

CRAZY EIGHTS: The Yankees have scored eight runs in each of their last two games. It marks their first time with at least eight runs in consecutive home games since September 22-24, 2011. Prior to Wednesday’s win against Kansas City, the Yankees had not scored more than seven runs in a game at Yankee Stadium this season.

UPDATE, 7:44 p.m.: A few singles off Kuroda, but he’s through two innings without any damage. Still not too happy about this weather situation. Has two-hour delay written all over it.

UPDATE, 8:11 p.m.: Another inning of trouble and another escape act by Kuroda. Still scoreless heading into the bottom of the third.

UPDATE, 8:24 p.m.: You’d think this game would be in the sixth inning by now, but it’s moving at a snail’s pace through three scoreless. There’s a steady rain falling, but so far it doesn’t seem nearly hard enough for the tarp. Fingers crossed.

UPDATE, 8:38 p.m.: Another inning, another runner stranded by Kuroda.

UPDATE, 8:43 p.m.: Well, this is pretty brutal. Rain delay in the bottom of the fourth. Kuroda has been plenty effective, despite plenty of base runners. He’s at 72 pitches through four.

UPDATE, 9:43 p.m.: Game scheduled to restart at 9:55.

UPDATE, 9:59 p.m.: Kuroda back out even after the delay. Wouldn’t be shocked to learn he threw an “inning” of 15 pitches or so inside to stay loose. Would limit his pitch count, but at least the Yankees get to stick with him.

UPDATE, 10:09 p.m.: Two more base runners. Another scoreless inning for Kuroda.

UPDATE, 10:10 p.m.: Looks like Claiborne getting loose in the Yankees bullpen.

UPDATE, 10:17 p.m.: Big hit for Gardner, and a gutsy decision by Thomson to send Cruz. It’s a 1-0 Yankees lead. Kuroda in line for the win even if he doesn’t come back out for the sixth. I know wins don’t matter in the grand scheme of things, but players still care about them. The Yankees will feel good about themselves if they’re able to get Kuroda a W.

UPDATE, 11:14 p.m.: Didn’t make it look pretty, but that’s a huge series of strikeouts for Logan.

    . It’s not something that entered my mind in any way, that he could actually blow a tire running the bases or stretching things out or what have you.

    Padres Designate Ciriaco For Assignment
    Wonder if Yanks are interested?

    They may be. He’d be an upgrade from Nix.

  4. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Han Davenport…..It’s becoming pretty common knowledge that Brian Cashman is a GM with limited clout ever since the 2011 winter. Word is that Hal’s really into the Committee process on matters that they deem important. Scrapping gum off of other club’s shoes is still in Cashman’s sphere of power. It’s a Brook Brothers mess

  5. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    HUGE! Nice Kuroda

  6. Tyler July 12th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Haven’t seen a ton of Ciriaco but he looked like a HOF’er against the Yanks last year, lol.

  7. Against All Odds July 12th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Word is that Hal’s really into the Committee process on matters that they deem important.

    So he wants to go back to the Tampa/NY factions lol

    Cmon Robbie bust em up here.

  9. comnsnse July 12th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Too many threads to develop a coherent discourse!

    Really what’s the purpose when there are not that many posts?

  10. tomingeorgia July 12th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Has anybody said, “Let’s go Yanks”? Well, I will.

  11. chicken_stanley July 12th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Wow. Just landed and have 10 minutes till next flight.. thought I would jump on to see what was happening…no updates and very few posts ‘ disappointing

  12. Hans Davenport July 12th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Yeah. That always worked so well.

    A fine mess you’ve gotten yourself into Stanley.

  14. john smith July 12th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Kuroda should be on the all star team…

  15. Hassey July 12th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    Gotta get this guy some runs for once
    His ERA is steroid-era-Clemensesque but his record has nothing to show for it

  16. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    Hassey – I saw you called out this place the other day in the comment section at RAB. C’mon man…

  17. Hassey July 12th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Didn’t call out the place, just the behavior that night

    Someone had to

  18. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    I think many are peeking their heads out to see if the streets are safe here at The LoHud. It’s been a dark few days here.

  19. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Kuroda working hard tonight but getting it done. Such a smart pitcher.

  20. Hassey July 12th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    LoHud rapidly becoming Fort Apache

  21. Hans Davenport July 12th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    One hit off of Scott “Baseball” Diamond so far.

  22. Hassey July 12th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Don’t look now but victor Martinez is now up to 262

    Tigers lineup is deadly, though I’m surprised fatty mcbutterpants is down to 268

  23. SoS July 12th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Kuroda is our matsui os last decade. Absolute clutch. Our ace. Need to keep milking the cow next year. More leche left in the squirters. And yes u can milk a cat.

  24. austinmac July 12th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    I would hate to lose Kuroda to a budget issue.Guys like him are hard to find.

  25. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Yeah I mean I don’t care this place is just for fun for me, but then those people read what was going on over here and completely started clowning on everything. Not that I can blame them I guess.

    They got their own bad apples over at RAB. Namely some Tilapia dude. It’s all just a silly way to kill time anyway, or at least it should be.

  26. Hans Davenport July 12th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Tigers lineup is deadly, though I’m surprised fatty mcbutterpants is down to 268

    He weighs more than that.

  27. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    I’d like to have a lead after 5 tonight. Just in case this rain continues to be an issue.

  28. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    It’s obvious that Cano isn’t going to get anything to hit in this series. Especially with 1st pitch swinging Wells hitting behind him.

  29. SoS July 12th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    Give kuroda life time supply of matsui video collection. Add a sketch of godzillas sister in law if that gets us un mas in 2014.

  30. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    Kuroda is a top 5 pitcher regardless of what division or what League he’s in.. The dude can pitch

  31. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Another solid game for kuroda so far, and yet another game where he gets no run support.

  32. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Kuroda isn’t sharp but the conditions are terrible out there so you can understand it.

  33. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Hopefully no one gets hurt out there the outfield is a disaster.

  34. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    They are going to have to delay this I think

  35. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    ———-

    I doubt the Yanks would just release Joba.

    Looks like they are going to push to at least make this an official game. Let’s do our part and score a run here.

  36. SoS July 12th, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    Can someone give me a siskel n ebert rating for sharknato movie. Recorded. Worth watching?

  37. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Can they hit this 5.52 era pitcher please

  38. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Get settled in for a late Friday night.

  39. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Probably lose kuroda now if this is a long delay.

  40. Hassey July 12th, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    Probably lose me too if this is a long delY

  41. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    This Cosart dude is one hitting the Rays. Hope it holds.

  42. j9d July 12th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Pat M

    Dark indeed.

    And I love watching Kuroda pitch. He has been masterful.

    Offense had a chance to jump on Diamond early. He gained some confidence getting out of the first inning.

  43. JobaTipsHisCap July 12th, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Sweep them

  44. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    Unknown……I can only imagine what a rival Yankee blog would have to say when all hell breaks loose . I remember they used to love taking shots at SJ over there but I didn’t think they knew any of us beyond him..

  45. joecembrale July 12th, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    Susupects in capital crimes should be forced to listen to the Cashman press confernece to make the confess.

  46. GregD July 12th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Rain delay……..is all well here in Blogsville??

  47. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    It’s really not raining all that hard here, but it’s been so steady that the field must be soaked. I can’t imagine it was easy to play out there. Wonder how long this can go for Kuroda to stay in the game.

  48. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    I find it kind of funny that Cashman is getting a bunch of heat for something that I actually agree with him on.

    Stop picking on Cashman you haters. :D

  49. j9d July 12th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Seems like one of those non-stoppers, Chad.

  50. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Yeah, that’s what I’m afraid of. I’d really rather not have to deal with two and a half games tomorrow.

  51. chicken_stanley July 12th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Hans -

    A fine mess you’ve gotten yourself into Stanley.

    —–

    I think I see a trend developing :)

  52. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Toronto has returned to their losing ways. They are going to need another long winning streak sometime in the second half if they want a shot of competing whatsoever.

  53. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    I’m honestly more surprised by the Red Sox than the Blue Jays. The Jays always seemed to have the potential for a collapse, but I never imagined the Red Sox having this kind of first half. I seriously had them picked to finish last in the division.

  54. jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    A long delay means our best pitcher has to come out and their sucky pitcher has to come out. Not good.

  55. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    Our pen > Their pen

  56. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 9:21 pm e

    A long delay means our best pitcher has to come out and their sucky pitcher has to come out. Not good.

    True. Not sure Kuroda was going to go much beyond the sixth with this pitch count, but certainly you’d rather have him as long as possible.

  57. jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    Still rather have Kuroda. I guess Warren would come in.

  58. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    “I seriously had them picked to finish last in the division.”

    You mean just ahead of the Yanks? :wink:

  59. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    Looks like the tarp is coming off

  60. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    Tar July 12th, 2013 at 9:25 pm e

    “I seriously had them picked to finish last in the division.”

    You mean just ahead of the Yanks? :wink:

    I thought the Rays and Yankees were going to be the best teams in the division. I’ve come around on the Orioles. Their lineup has become awfully impressive.

  61. jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    It will be an hour or more before Kuroda would pitch again, I kind of doubt they will put Kuroda back out there, maybe.

  62. jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    At the beginning of the year I thought it would be a 5 team shootout. Pretty close. I didn’t think Boston would be this good either. They had a lot of things go right.

  63. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Good thing Diamond is most likely done for the day. He was fooling the Yanks tonight and the last time they faced him even though his era is over 5.50.

  64. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    So Arod was rained out yesterday and today. He has only played in like 6 out of 11 games because of rain. The Yanks have to get him out of Tampa if they are serious about him returning this year. Move him to Charleston or Trenton.

  65. tucker July 12th, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    Orioles and that young core have the potential to be a force in this division for years to come, particularly if Bundy develops …

  66. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    Restart at 9:55, so says the Yankees

  67. jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    Don’t blow this save Jose Veras!

  68. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    “I thought the Rays and Yankees were going to be the best teams in the division. I’ve come around on the Orioles. Their lineup has become awfully impressive.”

    For the past…. it seems like forever, a lot of things had to go wrong for the Yankees to NOT be one of the best teams in Baseball.

    This year there were way to many things that had to go right, for them even to make the post-season. A perfect storm of things going their way. So I was doubtful of their chances.

    But I refuse to bet against Jeter and certain other players, so I had them for the WC. I’m stubborn and still think they may take it.

  69. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Rays mounting one heck of a 2 out rally.

  70. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    @DavidWaldstein

    right-hander Ryan Pressley warming in pen for the Twins. No one in Yanks bullpen yet

  71. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    I think sometimes they have the reliever throw down underneath. That is what happened on Monday with Hughes.

    Longo K’s looking. YES!!

  72. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    No one warming in the Yankees bullpen. Guess it’s possible Kuroda is going back out.

  73. pat July 12th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    How to encourage mac and cheese eating ml’ers to want to be good enough to make big ML $……

    DietrichEnns: HUGE thanks to @AROD tonight for the spread from Ruth’s Chris! #steaksonsteaks

    Rays lose. \o/

  75. ecc16 July 12th, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Rays lose… yeeeeees… that was scary

  76. j9d July 12th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    Wow…Kuroda back out is surprising…but good.

  77. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Jose Veras was one of many pitchers that Mariano took under his wing. I remembered he talked about Jose’s abilities. Didn’t work out with the Yankees, but it’s good to see he’s still in the league.

  78. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Kuroda is done until after the break ,however I’m always concerned with older arms stiffening

  79. jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    Wow, Kuroda going back out after about 1:20.

  80. Chad Jennings July 12th, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    Kuroda it is

  81. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    Nunez swings always seems like he’s trying to hit one into the upper deck, when he isn’t that type of hitter.

  82. Doreen July 12th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    Fingers crossed for Kuroda.

  83. joeman July 12th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    doesn’t anyone look at the radar…

  84. Hankflorida July 12th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    I am listening to Cone talk during the rain delay, and I disagree with his contention that when the dog days of August comes, the injured players coming back can propel the Yanks into the pennant race. I think without changes now, it may be too late. Kay put it right on the nose when he said that losing those all those power numbers and having the 7, 8 and 9 hitters like a Triple A ball club, the Yankees should now be eight games below .500.

  85. jacksquat July 12th, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    Nasty split.

  86. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    Kuroda is an absolute gamer!!

  87. Doreen July 12th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    And yet, they are 8 above. Sometimes stuff turns out not what you’d expect. It is a tribute to the pitching and the players not giving up in spite of everything that has gone wrong.

    It may not be likely that they’ll get a second wind, but I would not bet against it. Will it be enough to get to the playoffs? It will depend on how the other teams fare in the second half, too.

  88. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I would walk Mauer every time he comes up with 2 outs. The rest of the lineup stinks and Morneau isn’t close to what he used to be.

  89. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    I am shocked that Kuroda is back out there especially considering this age. Really weird decision.

  90. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:09 pm

    Smart pitching again by Kuroda. Very smart.

  91. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    Claiborne is up.

  92. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Bunt this ball.

  93. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    I like the bunt since Stewart is such a bad hitter

  94. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    Nicely executed.

  95. j9d July 12th, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    Cruz’s swing has a lot of moving parts. Good hit but geez. Simplification project waiting to happen.

  96. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    Gardner we need you buddy. Cmon

  97. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    WHOOP WHOOP!!!

  98. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    Gardy!

  99. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    Go Gardner!!!

  100. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    Now Hiro can get the win.

  101. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Gardenhire managing like this is a world series game

  102. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Can we get that heavy rain back now? :-)

  103. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Ichiro is going to tag this guy

  104. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:23 pm

    Damn now they walk Cano

  105. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:23 pm

    Or not

    Whats up with the ball boy not giving up the foul ball?

  106. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Ok I guess not lol

  107. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    BWHAHAHAHA. Now Gardenhire is just trying to get fired.

  108. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Not sure why they pitched to Cano but glad they did.

  109. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Dumb Gardenhire…. why would you pitch to him?

  110. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:27 pm

    Cano trying to steal a base?! lol

  111. Hankflorida July 12th, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Doreen you are right, but I do not think that the pitching can hold up with this type of offense. Moving the line with clutch hits does not occur at a consistent basis with this team of mostly bench players. We need those long ball numbers from last year, and next week when we play Boston and Texas, we still will not have the clout. Time is of the essence.

  112. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Now rain hard so we can get a rain shortened win.

  113. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    I don’t understand bringing Kuroda back for one inning. But ok.

  114. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    Yanks need injured players to come back and not go back on the DL and need help at the deadline. This lineup of cano and bench players isn’t going to cut it for 3 more months.

  115. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    CB Bucknor is back behind the dish in Oakland. First time since the 18 inning Yankee game there. And he went down by a deflected ball. Now they are in a delay waiting for a different umpire to get his plate gear on.

  116. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:33 pm

    At the trading deadline Cashman has to pretend that Jeter, Arod and Granderson aren’t coming back this year. If something makes sense for 3rd base, 1st base or DH he has to do it. The offense is held together by tape right now but the tape is breaking.

  117. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    What a throw! :shock:

  118. Doreen July 12th, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    Hankflorida,

    I am nervous about the games against Texas and Boston.

    I think the ASB could help the team a bit, let them catch their breath to at least some extent.

    Darn. How did that ball get there???? That’s 2013.

  119. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Dumb to try and stretch that, but that was an awesome throw.

  120. pat July 12th, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Trade: #RedSox announce acquisition of LHP Matt Thornton and cash from #WhiteSox in exchange for OF Brandon Jacobs.

  121. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Did Kay call Vernon lazy on that? ;-)

  122. Mordot11 July 12th, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    That was an unreal throw to get Wells, but I’m going to get nitpicky here. With nobody out, getting thrown out at third is completely inexcusable. This team is not good enough offensively to get away with crap like that.

  123. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    With this offense wells needed to just be happy with the leadoff double. Only take the triple if your getting in standing up. Even though it took a great lucky fluke throw to get him out.

  124. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    I can’t blame Vern at all for that. That was just a crazy throw that is going to happen once a blue moon.

  125. jackamir July 12th, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    You can say what you want about V. Wells but he is a Professional, on and off the field.. I like him for all work he puts in….He has made plenty of money yet he hasn’t given up…

  126. MG July 12th, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Considering that the centerfielder had to chase the ball down and it was wet when he picked it up that might be the best throw by an outfielder I’ve ever seen.

    They should get the ‘tapemeasure’ out and figure out just how far he threw it on the fly, maybe the Twins should put him in the bullpen.

  127. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    he rushed that pitch. he better watch out for the balk call

  128. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Good move Joe, Preston was done.

  129. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    I am surprised that no one is warming up. Claiborne isn’t really a 2 inning pitcher or at least he hasn’t been used like that anyway.

    Oh great Logan to blow this lead.

  130. Patrick July 12th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Claiborne is a 1 inning pitcher, it never makes sense to me when Girardi tries to strech him out. Come on dude its 2-0 in the 7th inning…

  131. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    I don’t like that Boston got Thornton.

  132. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    Mourneau loves hitting in Yankee Stadium. He has some great numbers in NY. I’m to tired to look them up or I would post them.

  133. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    Yeah Boone is going to earn his post-game spread tonight.

  134. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    Holy cow what a throw by Hicks….wet ball and everything that was just incredible.

  135. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    That sucks

  136. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Hey Trisha——-Are you here?

  138. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    BLAKE….I’ve watched the replay three times on that throw by Hicks, wow !!!!

  139. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    WOW :shock: Completely.

    Got Mr. Plate Discipline looking.

  140. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Huuuuuge K.

  141. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Good pitch….

  142. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    I hate putting the game in Logan’s hands. He and Joba always make you nervous.

  143. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    I would walk Morneau

  144. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    Pitch around again? I would think about it. Doumit has really sucked tonight.

  145. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    Maybe they should simulate rain every time Logan pitches

  146. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    Lets get another K and call the game for rain.

  147. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    Thanks Blake

    Thats the old Stadium.

    New stadium

    .458 .536 1.000 1.536– 56PA :shock:

  148. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    I wouldn’t throw anything inside especially with Logan who always misses his spots

  149. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    Walk Mourneau I don’t care if it’s 0-2.

  150. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    Tar,

    Yea I guess so….those numbers are crazy. He likes the short porch you might say

  151. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    Yakaty Sax Time

  152. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    Ouch…Logan is missing his spots by a ton.

  153. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    YES!!!!!!! Now call the game!!!!

  154. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    Nasty slider

  155. UnKnown July 12th, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    YES HE DID YES HE DID. Kerwin Danley punches him out.

    Now call it. Way to go BOOOOOOONE

  156. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    It’s always a miracle when Logan comes in against 2 good hitters and doesn’t give up a run

  157. Tyler July 12th, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    Wow great result by Logan there.

  158. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    I really don’t want to see Mo pitch in this slop :-( .

  159. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    The Sox got Thornton for their #16 prospect. What a surprise.

  160. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    I’m shocked that Kay thought he held up. I thought that was pretty clearly not a check.

  161. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    I agree with Cone, that was a good move by the HP for not throwing out Mourneau .

  162. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:17 pm

    @PeterBotte

    Kuroda, btw, now leads the AL in ERA at 2.65

  163. Bucky July 12th, 2013 at 11:17 pm

    Never mind, he just changed his mind on seeing it again.

  164. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 11:23 pm

    Matt Thornton is overrated, yanks aren’t missing out on anything. They need offense anyway.

  165. Against All Odds July 12th, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:17 pm
    @PeterBotte

    Kuroda, btw, now leads the AL in ERA at 2.65

    ——————————-

    That’s insane.

  166. jackamir July 12th, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Cone is so good. He is very informative…

  167. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    Kay had no idea what Cone was talking about

  168. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    igotid88 has been emailing Cone. :D

  169. Doreen July 12th, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    I love Cone because he is conversant in both baseball languages. :) . He’s comfortable with the numbers and gives great insight into the game in the more traditional, experiential manner.

  170. blake July 12th, 2013 at 11:31 pm

    They should kick Kay out and let Kenny and Cone do most of the games

  171. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    Man I was hoping that Ichiro would be hitting in th e.285 neighborhood for the break

  172. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    Kuroda isn’t an all star but Masterson with his 3.72 era and 2 Blue Jay relievers are all stars. Ridiculous.

  173. jackamir July 12th, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    Kay needs dental work… He puts his feet in his mouth quite regularly…

  174. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:34 pm

    I guess I’m kind of selfish. I never mind our pitchers not going to the All Star game.

  175. Against All Odds July 12th, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    YES should do a half hour weekly pitching show with Cone. He can have the young pitchers on there talking about the struggles and success as well as progress being made. Retired pitchers can come on and detail the fine art of pitching.

  176. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    The only good thing about west coast games is that Kay isn’t doing the broadcasts

  177. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 12th, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    Yikes! Game is still on!

    Hey all. Just got in from a family get together and the last thing I expected was the game to be going! In fact, I tried putting it on in the radio shortly before 9:30 and just figured it was a real fast game, ha ha. It must have been in a rain delay.

    Looking good at this point. May it continue.

    :)

  178. chicken_stanley July 12th, 2013 at 11:38 pm

    Finally done with 12 lovely hours of air travel… tuned into 880… Yanks up!!… makes my day! Now lets hang on!

  179. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:38 pm

    Great inning from Robertson

  180. jackamir July 12th, 2013 at 11:41 pm

    Trisha,
    Do you have HBO? If you do have you ever watched Newsroom? I really like it.

  181. jlyanks85 July 12th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    How kuroda isn’t on the all star team leading the al in era, yet nick markakis who has a lower OPS than Gardner gets voted in. The all star selection process is a joke. Only reason hardy got voted in was because jeter has been out all season.

  182. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 12th, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    I’ve seen at least a few totally ridiculous suggestions that it is possible that C R 9, mick, and I are all the same person.

    There are certainly enough people posting here who can automatically attest to the fact that C R 9 and I are hardly the same person based on background information that they have and things they know cold about former situations. I believe Chad can easily attest to it also.

    Why anyone would think that mick and I are the same person is beyond me. Because people do lap up all of the stuff that certain people throw out doesn’t mean they are the same person.

    Actually you’d have to be either very new here or very daft to even suggest that we’re multiples.

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

    jerkface, I find it uproariously funny that you’d make comment in a deparacating way about those who enjoy Comnsnse. Why because he’s cut you down to size? Oh well!

    *********

    On a happier front – GO YANKS!!! Get this win for Hiroki!

  183. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 12th, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    jackamir – don’t have HBO. I probably can find it on youtube though! I’ll check it out!

    :)

  184. Jerkface July 12th, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    I find it uproariously funny that you’d make comment in a deparacating way about those who enjoy Comnsnse.

    Too clarify this statement, ‘those who enjoy comnsnse’ so far are: mick, C R 9, trisha. What an illustrious group :twisted:

  185. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 12th, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    That should have read “Because people do NOT lap up…”

  186. Jerkface July 12th, 2013 at 11:49 pm

    Again, proving my theory that trisha likes anyone who attacks people she doesnt like.

  187. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 12th, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    Oh jerkface, how I wish I could be in your league.

    :lol:

    There are far more than the three of us who enjoy him. Don’t delude yourself little one.

  188. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    Let’s go Mo!!!

  189. Jerkface July 12th, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    There are far more than the three of us who enjoy him. Don’t delude yourself little one.

    Actually I think this is your delusion based on not reading the blog.

  190. Jerkface July 12th, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    You may also be counting all of C R 9′s accounts as multiple people :lol:

  191. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 12th, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    “Again, proving my theory that trisha likes anyone who attacks people she doesnt like.”

    Yes, and tomingeorgia is racist and there are spies behind bushes.

    While I don’t dislike you – I really have no feeling about you – I do enjoy seeing your smug butt handed to you. Comnsnse knocks the pompous here down quite a few pegs. Oh well.

    He’s erudite and quick and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. So you’re on the outside looking in. It happens.

    See ya now jerkface. I’m watching a Yankee win.

  192. Pat M. July 12th, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    Newsroom…..Outstanding TV. Olivia Munn

  193. Captain Clutch July 12th, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    Nice win…Mo is like a cat off the mound.

  194. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 12th, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    O-KAY!!!!!

    On a roll again.

    GO YANKS!!!!

    :)

  195. mick July 12th, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    I AM NOT AN ANIMAL

  196. chicken_stanley July 12th, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    WOO HOO YANKS!!

  197. Tar July 12th, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    “There are far more than the three of us who enjoy him. Don’t delude yourself little one.”

    Trish

    I think he’s either WCYF or a close second to him. You are being naive again.

  198. chicken_stanley July 13th, 2013 at 12:00 am

    This domination of the Twins can’t last forever… getting a little nervous… hope it lasts through the weekend

  199. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 13th, 2013 at 12:02 am

    Tar – the LAST person Comnsnse is, is WCYF!!! WCYF was never that erudite and I guess they both posted in the past on the Daily News and were arch enemies. Anyway, WCYF got bounced here continually because he couldn’t refrain from calling me names. This is NOT WCYF.

    Why is it that when I enjoy someone who may not be a favorite of yours, or someone else’s, I’m the one being naive? Maybe you have it wrong Tar. I am not being naive. Just enjoying his posts and the way he handles some of the more “entitled” (IMO) posters here.

  200. Tar July 13th, 2013 at 12:04 am

    Trish

    You do not know him at all. He just shows up out of the blue and starts stalking Blake and Nick to mention two.

    But no you are not being naive….

  201. Tar July 13th, 2013 at 12:08 am

    He’s full himself which is exactly what WCYF was. He loves to hear himself talk. If he’s not WCYF he might as well be, because its going to turn out the same way.
