TIME/TV: 4:05 p.m., FOX

WEATHER: Bright sunny day here in Boston. Somewhere in this city, my friend’s Joel and Katie have a beautiful day for their wedding.

UMPIRES: HP Adrian Johnson, 1B Brian O’Nora, 2B Fieldin Culbreth, 3B Bill Welke

GET IN POSITION: Over their last four games, the Yankees are hitting .449 with three doubles, three home runs, 33 RBI, six walks and a .509 on-base percentage with runners in scoring position. Alfonso Soriano has a hit in each of his last 6AB with RISP (1 double, 2 homers, 11 RBI) and seven of his last eight such at-bats.

THE SORI SHOW: Alfonso Soriano is tied for fifth on the Yankees with eight homers and ranks seventh with 26 RBI despite having just 75 at-bats with the club. He has 19 runs in 19 games as a Yankee this year.

ON THE MARK: Last night, Mark Reynolds became the first Yankee to homer in his first plate appearance with the club since Andruw Jones did so on April 5, 2011. He is the 22nd player to hit a home run for the Yankees this season, tying a franchise record, according to the Elias Sports Bureau (also 22 players in 2000 and 1965).

UPDATE, 4:30 p.m.: Soriano was nearly picked off twice, then got too far off the bag on a shallow fly ball. He’s doubled off and the Yankees are down to their last out of the second inning.

UPDATE, 5:04 p.m.: This is the pitching matchup we expected. Scoreless through three.

UPDATE, 5:27 p.m.: Yankees had a chance to turn two there. It would have gotten them out of the inning without a run, instead it’s a 1-0 Red Sox lead with runners at first and second.

UPDATE, 5:29 p.m.: Is it too early for Girardi to get one of those challenge flags?

UPDATE, 5:34 p.m.: Bad throw by Overbay in this inning, and what looked like a bad call at third base. Ugly way to allow two runs.

UPDATE, 5:52 p.m.: Yankees got one run in the fifth and trail 3-1. Can they chip away enough to get this game back?

UPDATE, 6:19 p.m.: Bad throw by Cano lets Ellsbury get to third, but the real damage was done on the RBI double. It’s now a 5-1 Red Sox lead in the sixth. Bad defense by the Yankees today, plus a not-as-good-as-usual start by Kuroda, plus a lack of offense tend to lead to games like this one.

UPDATE, 6:21 p.m.: Kuroda is finished. This seams like a Preston Claiborne situation, but he’s gone, so here’s Adam Warren.

    Let’s go, boys! Sweep.

    Let’s do this. Keep the Hope alive.

  3. jackamir August 17th, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    Lets go Yanks…
    Score early & often….
    Lets go Hiroki !!!!!!!
    This is a big game and Kuroda has to come up large….

  4. Pat M. August 17th, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    If Lackey cannot establish his bender today he’ll be toast by the 5th

  5. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    That’s not a strike.

  6. Jeff in Canada August 17th, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    A Lackey-ARod bench clearing tilt might be something the Yanks can rally around. ARod could redeem himself from the Arroyo b*+ch slap.

    Something tells me Lackey wants none of that though.

    (((hits Mute button)))

  7. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    Bob Klapisch ?@BobKlap
    ARod predicted this story would get uglier. He was right: lawyer tells NY Times #Yankees deliberately endangered slugger’s health.

    Alex’s turn. MLB/Yanks you’re up.

  8. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    Pizza just arrived.. timed that perfectly.

  9. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    what kind of pizza?

  10. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    Varitek punching AROD with his catcher’s gear on like a p***y

  11. jackamir August 17th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    “Gomer” Lackey is a Putz and I never liked him. He is a cry baby and the Yanks have to get to him and irritate him by breaking his pace.. Step out a lot and create a slow down…

  12. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Go Kuroda-San! Go Yanks!

  13. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    Lackey looks like a retard with his mouth always hanging wide open.

  14. exiledintampa August 17th, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Bob Klapisch?@BobKlap1m
    Most explosive charge from NTY story: Yankees hid results of MRI that showed ARod w/torn hip labrum, allowed him to play injured in October

  15. Pat M. August 17th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    I read the NY Times piece earlier this morning and the gloves have come off and Alex is not going down on Technical KO……And when the NY Times posts a piece like this , well it carries some cred. After all they’re not the Post or Daily News of course.. Tin Cup pull this piece up and you’re going to dig it

  16. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    It does not really say ‘shares a birthday with Fox Sports 1′ on my screen right now…. I’m imagining this.

  17. Doreen August 17th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    So the ugly is coming from both sides…

  18. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Great recovery by Hiro!

  19. mnmboys August 17th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Kuroda looks like he is throwing whiffle balls.

  20. chicken_stanley August 17th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    An aquaintance is in Lackey’s extended circle. The aquaintance seems ok but his Lackey stories have reinforced my belief that Lackey is a total jackwagon.

    Cmon Yanks – chase him after 2 innings!

  21. Doreen August 17th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Hence ARod’s seemingly innocent quote yesterday that he shouldn’t have been out there last year.

  22. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    It’s ugly but it’s goooood: http://i1075.photobucket.com/a.....a7c7fb.jpg

    Nice first inning by KURODA. Didn’t expect anything less.

  23. jackamir August 17th, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    That’s how you pitch to Pedroia—Low curves….Make him chase…

  24. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    The Yanks should tell Arod to shut and just play ball. It’s an honor to play for the Yankees and they pay his check so if he doesn’t want to show them respect then don’t play. Enough is enough already with his people attacking the Yanks everyday.

  25. Jeff in Canada August 17th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Roddy will win some fans back with a blast here.

    If it’s to dead center, count me as one of them…

  26. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    I pray Lackey hits AROD, and he takes his bat out to the mound and decapitates him. I want to see us rally around a brawl like them in 2004.

  27. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    C’mon Alf!!!

  28. jackamir August 17th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    Crooked number in the 2nd..

  29. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    Sori! Go Alex!

  30. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    Shocked they didnt argue that call.

  31. rl15 August 17th, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    I think Sori is just stealing bases now to prove that he can get to 400.

  32. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    The smurf is a totally different hitter when you keep the ball down. That’s how you have to pitch him.

  33. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    Come on AROD. Just do one fcking thing. Crush this ball over the monster.

  34. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    I think that Lackey will definitely throw one up and in to Arod. He won’t hit him because he doesn’t want a base runner or for the ump to take it into his own hands.

  35. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Soriano doin it all! Now arod needs to shut lackey up with a homer!

  36. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    YEAH!!! Good eye!!

  37. Duh Innings II August 17th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Alfonso Soriano

    3 HR shy of 400 HR & 18 SB shy of 300 SB

    400 SB & 300 SB like Willie Mays & Andre Dawson + X more HR & SB 2014 – ??? + clean record =

    HALL OF FAME FOR SORIANO

  38. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Atta boy, Alex.

  39. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Nice AB there.

  40. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    lol
    ————

    @McCulloughSL

    Re: NYT story, Randy Levine says if A-Rod “really believes” he was mistreated by team, he should file a grievance. “Put up, or shut up.”

  41. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    THATS NOT A STRIKE!!!!

  42. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Needless to day the NY Times article raises things to another level… nice observation btw, Doreen. That does seem like it was foreshadowing looking back.

    Bad play there by Alf. Dang.

  43. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Terrible base running by Soriano

  44. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Just got effed because of that cheap strike 1 by the umpire.

  45. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Horrible play by Soriano sigh

  46. Jeff in Canada August 17th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    If Lackey doesnt think ARod should be playing, why did he just give him first base? Apparently they’re SED’s too (sight enhancing drugs).

  47. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    This POS McCarver. Every play the Red Sox make is a great play. It was a simple play.

  48. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    Jeff – Lol, Lackey did look like he was pitching around him, didn’t he?

  49. Jeff in Canada August 17th, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Lackey? More like Walkey, amirite?!

  50. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Gotta capitalize here…

  51. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    fallacy of the predetermined outcome, but that Sori miscue really hurts.

  52. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Too bad he couldn’t score now the pitcher is up

  53. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    and Stewie got an RBI yesterday in a meaningless spot.

    This worthless POS wont do anything positive here.

  54. mnmboys August 17th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Here comes the rally killer.

  55. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Hitless Stew!!!

  56. Jeff in Canada August 17th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Geez – Roddy looked like Edgar “The Ostrich” Martinez rounding that bag.

    What’s the opposite of “spry”?

  57. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    They really messed up this inning

  58. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    This worthless turd Stewart. I cant wait to celebrate the day the Yankees flush him.

  59. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Ugh

  60. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Well that was expected. Stewart sux

  61. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Great at bat by Stewie. His at bats aren’t even competitive.

  62. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 17th, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    Pat M. – because Tacopina said so? The guy’s been on their legal team a few days and suddenly has all of the answers?

    Levine denied making the statements that Tacopina said Kelly relayed to Rodriguez. Levine added that transcripts of phone calls between him and Kelly would back him up.

    I can’t wait until that cheating hack Arod is drawn and quartered, and all of his loyal followers are made to look ridiculous.

    Tacopina represented one of the cops who sodomized Abner Louima and he also represented the likes of Joran Van der Sloot.

    Exactly what are you “digging” about the piece Pat M.? More lies from Rodriguez and his representatives?

    Tacopina was hired because he’s a ruthless pirhana. It’s hardly surprising that he would choose the NY Times to plant his story.

  63. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 17th, 2013 at 4:39 pm

  64. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    CC has a better chance to get a hit than Stewie. Too bad Romine is tied to the dug out.

  65. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    If there is a brawl you think Dana White would get involved? That would be awesome!

  66. longtimefan August 17th, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    I don’t understand the reasoning of Stewart over Romine. I thought Romine was being groomed as everyday catcher and Stewart has always been back up, so why does he get most of playing time?

  67. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    That green monstrosity has made some really average hitters look good cough Daniel nava cough

  68. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    They’re sucking Danny Nava off. This is sickening.

    How can one sign with a minor league team for $1. Isn’t there a league minimum or is that just for MLB.

  69. JSR August 17th, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    McCarver’s discussion of Nava’s “wet stuff” was sickening. He needs to go.

  70. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Romine should be playing more. Just that simple. Stewie’s taken a beating this year.

    Beautiful play by Cano. Beautiful.

    He makes baseball look like art.

  71. Against All Odds August 17th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    So lazy

  72. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Cano didnt have to do that. He couldve taken a deeper angle towards the outfield, stopped, planted, and thrown. He nearly cost us a run.

  73. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Good play by cano and good scoop by overbay! Now let’s gets some runs!

  74. exiledintampa August 17th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Cano was lazy on that play.

  75. Against All Odds August 17th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 4:39 pm
    CC has a better chance to get a hit than Stewie. Too bad Romine is tied to the dug out.

    —————————

    It’s the Yankee motto we don’t like to play young players here.

  76. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    His attempt to be flashy nearly cost us. LUckily Overbay scooped it.

  77. MG August 17th, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    that was as good a play as a second baseman can make

    He is the only one in baseball who could make that throw…

  78. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    He was lazy. He wanted to make the play look flashy. It didnt have to be flashy. He had a slow catcher running on a weak ground ball.

  79. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    how can anyone think that’s the best play a 2B can make. That was a weak ground ball. He didnt have to make that difficult throw that came up short of Overbay.

  80. JSR August 17th, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    Is romine sleeping with Girardi’s wife or something? Let the kid out of the dugout Joe

  81. Pat M. August 17th, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    Tricia…. Because I don’t and never did trust Selig and Levine. In fact I always had issues with most of the money grabbing owners all the way back to Curt Flood…. Cano just does things at 2nd with his arm that defies explanation. That’s an amazingly hard throw and he simply flips it ?????

  82. JSR August 17th, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Why can’t Tim McCarver’s announcing be declared “Conduct detrimental to the game”?

  83. bc August 17th, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    amazing how people’s perceptions are skewed when they’re homer fans. I like Cano too, but making that extraordinarily difficult throw in that situation was sheer stupidity.

  84. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    We can get to Lackey today, no doubt. Kuroda looks just fine too.

  85. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Freddie Hour here. This Saturday games on Fox are brutal.

  86. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Brilliant

  87. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Was that a lazy double play?

  88. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    that was a very good play.

  89. longtimefan August 17th, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Papa Smurf can only dream about being as good as Cano

  90. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Cheap hits all over the place today. Dang

  91. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    Another nice inning from KURODA.

    We have to find a way to win this one. We’ve wasted enough KURODA starts for this season.

  92. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    HA look at Robbie. Meanwhile McCarver’s acting drunk. Business as usual I guess.

  93. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    CAno nonpareil unreal

  94. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    Cano rules.

  95. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 17th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    “Tricia…. Because I don’t and never did trust Selig and Levine.”

    Wasn’t it Levine who by-passed Cashman and brokered the “new” deal for Arod? I don’t think anybody has been more vocal about their hatred and distrust for Selig than I have. But you really have to stretch your imagination to believe that Arod has no involvement in the Bosch affair, something that was dumped into the laps of MLB, not something they sought out.

    Tacopina hasn’t been on the legal team a week and personally brokered the story in the Times. It’s typical Tacopina, meaning it’s part of his modus operandi in all of his cases. He’s seeking to elevate Arod’s status and to neutralize the negativity against him at the same time. I wouldn’t afford it any more “cred” because he chose the Times for the story.

  96. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    I agree JSR if Selig were a real commissioner he would invoke the best interests o the game clause and never let McCarver near a booth again

  97. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Cano rules.. when he’s not making stupid mistakes or being lazy.

  98. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Pruf – What’s Up. I have a prediction for the game today. PAIN!

  99. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    This guy is amazing.

  100. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Sori is just LOCKED

  101. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    Atta boy, Sori!

    Go Alex!!!

  102. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    Pat M – wish that reptile Levine would crawl back to City Hall and leave us be

  103. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    He was safe.

  104. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    Oh he was safe…

  105. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    And McCarver wont not that Soriano was safe.

  106. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    Not a good jump by Soriano there.

  107. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    Crap

  108. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    Eff.

  109. rl15 August 17th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    Absolutely safe.

  110. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    *note

  111. Duh Innings II August 17th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    ‘Saw a shot of Fred Lynn – ‘looks good.

    He was robbed of a second ALMVP award in 1979 because the writers were too wrapped up in the 17 more RBI Don Baylor drove in than Lynn.

    Lynn won the slashline crown or almost did as while he led the league in OBP, SLG, and OPS, I think he finished tied for the batting title as his .333 BA was in bold but not italicized on Baseball Reference.

  112. Against All Odds August 17th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    He was safe but you’re right Tim clearly out smh

  113. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Not a strike

  114. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    That was stupid by Arod. If you see him running let him take the base. Even thought he was clearly safe.

  115. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Next time he gets a hit Soriano should just stay at first.

  116. randy l. August 17th, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    “. Enough is enough already with his people attacking the Yanks everyday.”

    you see , this is where it gets complicated.

    the”Yanks” aren’t the real yankees.

    the people in charge right now are a bogus group who would bring down the real yankees.

    then on the other hand alex has some serious credibility problems .

    but he’s an enemy to the bogus group and causing all kinds of trouble for them which is helping the yankees win on the field.

    no one is without sin so figuring out who has the moral high ground on this one will take some time to play out.

    i want hal and cashman gone.

    i’ve been a yankee fan before either of them were born and i’ll be a yankee fan after they are both gone from the yankees.

    they are just temporary annoyances.

    alex?

    i’m not sure about him, but he’s impressed me since he came back and played well despite the adversity. not many people could do that.

  117. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    Unknown – Does it involve Laroy and a book of matches? :twisted:

    Wish Sori had stayed put :( Bs looking k there

  118. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    McCarver is a terrible announcer. It was obvious that Soriano was safe and of course he goes on and on about the great tag by the smurf. He is just terrible to listen to.

  119. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    Pete Abe and McCarver loved that whole sequence. Strike out and CS. Those two man…

  120. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    Lynn looked to be in good shape but he was dressed like a charter boat captain Do you automatically lose your sense of style at a certain age? When should I be worried that ill lose mine?

  121. JSR August 17th, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    That’s it…enough McMoron…I am watching the rest of this game on mute.

  122. tomingeorgia August 17th, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    There’s one for the new replay rule. He was safe, four times.

  123. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    Fox didnt even acknowledge sorianos hand was on the bag when pedroia tagged him… The more they showed replays the more obvious it was..

  124. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    Soriano wants to revert back to his younger base stealing days. He is pretty fast. A lot quicker than I remembered. Guy is just a good athlete.

  125. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    We’re fine. Sox getting the breaks so far. We will make our own breaks later.

  126. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    In ortiz’s world no pitcher ever throws a strike he doesnt hit

    bc, please keep it civil. Thank you.

  132. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    oh well, we really needed this game to have any real chance. and our offense had multiple chances. soriano gets doubled off, then gets cheated by the umpire and the child molesters in the FOX booth.

  133. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    Randy – absolutely. Levine and Hal Are the anti-Yankees. The have nothing to do with the pinstripes and that’s
    Why I’m suspicious of Nyone who
    Calls himself a Yankee fan
    Who was against Jorge two years Ago. The hardcore Yankee fan saw
    Through the ruse and that’s why they rose as one and honored Posada when he see that BB in his first AB- they said hey buddy we know which way the wind blows. It’s why Derek said eff no to working
    Both sides of the street when they went to him About PosAda: he has nothing to apologize for. None
    Of well he understands he should have plaYed Nd regrets it etc. Jeter knows who h way the wind blows too he and Posada Are the real Yankees

  134. randy l. August 17th, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    ballgame today.

    who blinks first ?

  135. astrocityfan August 17th, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    You kinda knew when the bad call happened during the Yankee half of the inning Boston would get things going in their half. Just hope hiro can minimize the damage

  136. Pat M. August 17th, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    Tricia, Levine is a power seeking sleazeball who will step over or in his case around his backstabbed victims. Torre, Bernie, Posada, Jeter, Cashman is on the clock right now. And of course you have Alex. Levine handled the A-rod contract for the Steinbrenners after Cashman didn’t want the re-upping. He’s very good for the man who signs the check, but he’s a disgusting person. And he’s going to be exposed finally. Once the Old Man was out of the picture this hump really came to power

  137. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    @nickcafardo: The Yankees are really trying to exploit John Lackey’s slow delivery (1.5) to the plate. They’re 2-for-3 in steal attempts through 4 I’s

    3-3. Just got a blown call on the 3rd one

  138. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    He’s arguing that too. That was right down the middle.

    Overbay ugh you would have had him by a mile

  147. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    Its time for overbay to go. His defense has been terrible this year…

  148. Northy August 17th, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    Bad baserunning and bad defense today – a recipe for defeat

  149. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    Great job by Overbay and Nunez. Nunez is an absolute joke. You have to step on 2nd base to make sure that you have the out there if you don’t come home. 2 morons.

  150. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Just don’t let this turn into a 3 or 4 run inning. We are going to score, don’t let this crap snowball here.

  151. J2L August 17th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Not what we needed, double safe …

  152. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    These umps are an absolute joke

  154. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    Looked like alex tagged him.
    Another blown call

  155. Northy August 17th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    And bad call’s… like the Yankees cannot win today

  156. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    This is getting ridiculous with the blown calls

  157. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    OverbY high throw means Nuney landing oddly as if he doesn’t have enough issue planting n throwing

    Now
    Umps giving Boston extr outs

  158. tomingeorgia August 17th, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    fechrissakes. Bring on replay.

  159. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    Reynolds should play 1st base everyday and Overbay should be his back up. Overbay is out of gas and his defense has been absolutely terrible. He looks like someone who has never played 1st base before.

  160. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    MccRver is. Complete idiot They hades playing way off bAg and. Raises the loser was out

  161. Pat M. August 17th, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    Still don’t miss Texeria ???

  162. Northy August 17th, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    Those stupid FOX commentators have a tough time stating the obvious that Carp was out…

  163. G. Love August 17th, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    I don’t miss Texeira at all.

    We’ll still win this game.

  164. bc August 17th, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Cashman wanted Overbay, Hafner, Wells, Ichiro, Stewart, Nix, Ishikawa. The only one that worked out was Ichiro.

    Cashman didnt want either Soriano. Both worked out so far.

  165. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    To think tex could still be here if he would have just agreed to bat righty full time, the side he actually hits better on anyway.

  166. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    I miss Tex. A LOT!!

  167. JSR August 17th, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    Both guys on the Red Sox blog forum are having a blast.

  168. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    I think a full time right handed hitting tex would be a major asset in the lineup. He hits for power and for average from the right side,and even goes opposite field from time to time…

  169. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    This inning and 2nd inning will most likely cost them the game. Terrible defense and the umps stink.

  170. RadioKev August 17th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Nunez really needs to go. He doesn’t hit and his defense is a disaster.

  173. Northy August 17th, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    Bad break after bad break….

    Bad baseball, bad umpiring makes it tough to win… Need to keep it at two runs…

  174. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    Yanks will get to lackey….
    Just frustratingly bad defense and bad umpiring.

  175. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    Umps three, Yankees nothing.

  177. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    Forget nunez. Overbay has cost us a bunch of runs this week.

  178. Northy August 17th, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    Turned the game off – not because the Yankees can’t win this game, but because I really cant stand listening to the FOX feed…

  179. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    Kuroda has had to throw about 20 more pitches this inning than necessary.
    He may not make it through 6.

  180. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    Hahahahaha… alright.. get some runs now.

  181. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Atta boy, Alex. What a sucky inning.

  182. yankeefeminista August 17th, 2013 at 5:40 pm

    It’s early and it’s Fenway. No problema.

  183. Pat M. August 17th, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    Texeria not only turns two he also catches that pop-up at The Stadium vs. Detroit last week. So once again how does this figure into the War ratings equations ????

  184. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    Overbay is in the same boat as Stewie. Girardi played them both everyday single day and they are both completely burnt out. Now that Reynolds is here they should let him play everyday and see how many home runs he can hit. Overbay has been terrible for a while now.

  185. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 5:42 pm

  189. rl15 August 17th, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    Swinging at the 1st pitch in that spot is insane. You have to work the pitcher. Now they will probably mess up this whole inning.

    2 would have been really nice there. They are a bit unfortunate today.. I think my hatred for Lackey is up there with Beckett. He’s lucky that a guy like Leyland isn’t the Yanks manager with his A-Rod comments. and he’s also lucky he doesn’t have to step up to plate. Keep your mouth shut and try not to continue being an 80 million dollar bust.

  216. SoS August 17th, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    Cano should have slid after making that play. Would have earned some style points.

  217. comnsnse August 17th, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    Kuroda should sue for non support!

    Cano,Ichiro and Gardner have had some of the worst swings possible!

    How is it possible a player with Gardner’s “tools” and limitations, can’t bunt, gets few IF hits and swings cup on the ball?

    He is the epitome of a JAG!

But someone like him I guess I am just surprised how childish he gets with it. “Ohhhh the crowd is booing, Ohhh the crowd is still booing, Ohhh call your lawyer Arod” I mean come on dude be a professional of some sort.

    UnKnown-

    He’s done that for as long as I can remember. He toned it down a bit as the Yanks beat but you can just tell it was pure hatred. Maybe A-Rod did something to him (even inadvertently) as we all know A-Rod can do some pretty dumb things. It seems to me like classic jealousy though (even with A-Rod in the position he’s in). Unathletic sports scribe just hates the star. Almost like high school.

  263. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    He’s thrown a ton of pitches and they e gotten a fair amount of line drives
    Off him

  264. JobaTipsHisCap August 17th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    very disappointed outing.
    he could have pitched better

  265. Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Ugh probably ball game. This one looked good on paper too. Definitely need some late inning magic.

  266. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Now 4 runs..

  267. mnmboys August 17th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Ellsbury would look nice in pinstripes.

  268. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    Freaking choppy game. Haven’t been able to catch a flow so far. 2nd inning was tough. Try to chip away, maybe get a break, probably going to take a dramatic 3 run shot or something. Can’t give up yet.

  269. JobaTipsHisCap August 17th, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    Ellsbury would be dead in car accident during offseason.

  270. cofuzz August 17th, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    This is not going to be good enough.
    We need sweeps, 6 of 8s, 12 of 15s.
    And losing to Lackey with our ace on the mound isn’t helpful towards that goal.

  271. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    Does jon heyman report on anything not arod related?
    The guy has a major hard on for the man.

  272. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    Tyler but it is FenwAy so we’re never really out of it

  273. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Did mccarver just compare the yankees blowing out the sox to the sox currently up 5-1 with 3 innings left?

    5 is not 10 timmy.

  274. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Ac1 maybe that’s part of the problem: disquieting ambivalence

  275. moctezuma August 17th, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    He got hit harder than usual, but Kuroda never should have had to throw so many pitches. Paid off umps ruining baseball more than steroids. I have watched way less games due to this. Giving one challenge with replay rather than unlimited (which would simply get the game right) is a way to hedge with fans while continuing to control and disgrace the sport. Baseball is in serious decline.

  276. Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    JAP-

    It’s definitely not over. We’ve all seen bigger comebacks at Fenway including just last year. Hate the sloppiness today though.

  277. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    Arod stories are such cop outs for non yankee writers.
    They cant put together other stories so they go to the easy saga.

  278. 4 NYY August 17th, 2013 at 6:26 pm

    McCarver made a good statment a while ago, A-Roid should tell his people to shut up ! He should also STFU, and just “no comment” the press. But, no, he cant do that, the dumbass “me” cheater.
    This is nothing but negativity being brought to Yanks because of him while they’re trying to get in the race.

    If I were the Yanks, I wouldn’t play him. ( he’d prolly sue )

  279. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:26 pm

    Lackey is not as good as the yankees are letting him look

  280. moctezuma August 17th, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    Who else thinks umps are on the take?

  281. balotin August 17th, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    Alex Rodriguez’s war against the Yankees and Major League Baseball escalated once again Saturday when the embattled Yankee slugger’s latest attorney, Joseph Tacopina, leveled a series of seemingly preposterous charges against the Yankees, including that the team sabotaged Rodriguez’s medical treatment and that Yankee president Randy Levine told a surgeon, “I don’t ever want to see him on the field again.”
    Tacapino told the New York Times that the Yankees hid an MRI from Rodriguez during the 2012 playoffs that revealed a torn labrum in his hip and that they continued to play him, even though he was struggling.

    ———————————————————————————

    A-Rod saying “no comment” will still get him killed by the press. Then it will be like he’s still hiding something.

    And he’s not exactly hurting the team. I’ll take his production any day over what they were getting earlier. and the team’s played a lot better since those Chicago games.

  283. moctezuma August 17th, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    Umps are bad but Yankees playing awful too.

  284. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    Do the yankees ever win a fox saturday game?

  285. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    Since the Yanks sent down their 7th inning reliever shouldn’t the guy they put on the roster for him play 1st everyday? I really don’t get Girardi and Cashman’s obsession with Overbay.

  286. Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Since the Yanks sent down their 7th inning reliever shouldn’t the guy they put on the roster for him play 1st everyday? I really don’t get Girardi and Cashman’s obsession with Overbay.
    ———————————————————————–

    Going by the stats. Overbay is OPSing .793 against RHP while Reynolds hasn’t been good against them.

  287. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Captain i am surprised girardi hasnt found a way to get nix into the game…. Like sending him to pinch hit for soriano….

  288. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    Ok we can get to the sox pen…..
    Their only good reliever is worn down from overuse.

  289. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    The umps were bad but the defense killed them in that inning. Cashman has to find an everyday SS this off season. Nunez can hit or field and he shouldn’t even be the roster next year.

  290. bc August 17th, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    We won the game last year against the Red Sox on FOX where they left in the middle for Phil Humber’s perfect game, and Nick Swisher and co. helped us come back from down 5 runs with a 9 run inning.

    We also won 1 FOX game this season I think.

  291. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    Captain i am surprised girardi hasnt found a way to get nix into the game
    —————–

    Girardi needs Nixy or Stewie in the lineup everyday. When Romine catches once a week it’s Nix playing 3rd base. He needs his washed up veteran fix.

  292. Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    Wells for Gardner?

  293. J. Alfred Prufrock August 17th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    WTF?

  294. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    We needed that… let’s get some runs here.

  295. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    The magic of wells

  296. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    If Gardner isn’t hurt then Wells pinch hitting for Gardner is a very weird move

  297. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    Girardi could get really creative here. PH Mark and lose the DH by playing Grandy in the field or Nix could play out there.

  298. Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    Nice job Wells… didn’t love the move but it worked out well.

  299. ac1 August 17th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Just keep the line going

  300. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Just can’t get the big hit

  301. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Damn.

  302. 4 NYY August 17th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    And he’s not exactly hurting the team. I’ll take his production any day over what they were getting earlier. and the team’s played a lot better since those Chicago games.

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

    He’s hardly a plus, can’t run, no range, little power. 1 Hr, 4 RBI, 4 runs scored !

    Would have been better for the team to accept punishment IMO in the long run. The circus wouldn’t be in town.

  303. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    I would’ve went all in there and PH Reynolds.

  304. Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    4 NYY-

    His OPS right now is probably .200 points higher than what the Yanks received from 3B all year. it’s the Yanks… they are used to handling distractions and being the center of attention.

  305. mnmboys August 17th, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    Top 3 in the order killed us today.

  306. JobaTipsHisCap August 17th, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    They lose today.
    Kuroda is very bad today.
    Now, at least they can drill some sux? But I guess they will choose to be pussies, again.

  307. mnmboys August 17th, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    Gardner, Ich, Cano 0-fer

  308. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    Ortiz is rocking the war paint.

  309. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    I guess the magic milkshakes are still working

  310. Shame Spencer August 17th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    Well.. it’s going to come down to CC tomorrow.

  311. Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    1st pitch to Ortiz every game should be under his hands. They have to move his feet. It didn’t work against Manny but making Ortiz cognizant of the inside pitch has a big effect. He’s so comfortable in the box.

  312. JobaTipsHisCap August 17th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    Cc will be rocked tomorrow.

  313. Jesus Bustero August 17th, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    So Randy thinks a 3B with a .780 OPS, statue of liberty defense wearing Nike cinder blocks on the base paths can turn around this season because of some kind of intangible quality of defiance or attitude? The weasel wants to suit the Yankees for “endangering” him.

    Total garbage.

  314. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    Well this thread just shrank.

  315. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    CC vs. Dempster is a game we need to win. No two ways about it.

  316. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    CC has been better his last 2 starts but he usually gets hammered by the Sox. It will be interesting to see if he can step up tomorrow.

  317. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    This team is so close to taking off, but like Thursday’s game and Today’s game are such momentum killers.

    We need to grind out these last 5 outs.

  318. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    McCarver should shut up. Like he knows anything about the Yankees farm system.

  319. 4 NYY August 17th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    Tyler August 17th, 2013 at 6:40 pm
    4 NYY-

    Hos OPS means little with such small production.

  320. 4 NYY August 17th, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 7:01 pm
    McCarver should shut up. Like he knows anything about the Yankees farm system.

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

    Problem is, the SOB was right. We have little available to us very soon.

  321. 4 NYY August 17th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    A-roid pauses !

  322. cofuzz August 17th, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Score a couple in the ninth even if we lose.
    Get that O’Neill Factor going into Sunday.

  323. UnKnown August 17th, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really sad that this is Timmy’s last year broadcasting. :roll:

  324. Captain Clutch August 17th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    I think now the Yanks see how short the bullpen is without Claiborne. You can’t have a bullpen of Logan, Joba and Warren before the 8th inning.

  325. cofuzz August 17th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    That was an amazing strikeout by the scrappy second baseman.
    He really worked the pitcher over before swinging through the ninth pitch.
    I really think, even though he’s back on the bench now, that he won that at-bat against Warren.

  326. cofuzz August 17th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    At least we established today that Kuroda can pitch poorly with Stewart behind the plate.
    I’m hoping something like today, something soon, can break the magic spell Stewie has on Girardi.
    But then, he doubled today too, contributing to our only run so far, so maybe the sparkledust is still pouring over the manager’s office.

  327. randy l. August 17th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    “I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really sad that this is Timmy’s last year broadcasting.”

    well, it’s kind of a conflict of interest announcing while being pedroia’s publicist. next year just doing that will be a lot easier.

  328. JobaTipsHisCap August 17th, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Well, it’s really hard to understand what yankee mangers and pitchers think sometimes.
    With what Ortiz have done to you, you just let it go and pitch him carefully?

    Is this still fxxxking joe Torres style

  329. cs in la August 17th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Well, at least we don’t have to hear McCarver anymore tonight. Nauseating homer.
