    Lets keep the train moving !!!
    Be stingy CC!!!!
    This lineup will produce and being home is ideal to finish off the White Sox…
    I am looking forward to this weekend series… I hope the Yanks are focused for tonight.
    First things first…

    Glad to see Romine in the lineup. Reminder to Joe G.; he really can hit lefties, btw.

    Ivan Nova has been named AL Pitcher of the Month for August.

    Get back into it CC

  5. Doreen September 4th, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    Congrats to Nova!!! Well Done!!

    Go Thunder!
    Go CC and the Yankees!!

    CC will dominate tonight, especially since the Killer Ds – De Aza and Dunn – shouldn’t give him too much trouble. Just have to pitch around Beckham.

    Hi Doreen, I’m in car heading to Thunder, so won’t be posting much. However, I saw your question the other day regarding your daughter and healthful food. So, happy to discuss w/you at some point.

    Sooner or later ARod is going to need a day off.

  9. Doreen September 4th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Thanks, yankeefeminista!

    Enjoy the game!!!

  10. 4TrainNorth September 4th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Give Al a couple of ABs tonight, and then get Nunez in there at 3rd.

  11. 4TrainNorth September 4th, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    Cubs claimed Daniel Bardsworth off waivers.

  12. Chambliss September 4th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Kind of amazing that the Sox let Bard go for nothing. The kid was a can’t miss prospect with 100 mph gas. Sounds a bit like Joba.

  13. yankeefeminista September 4th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    Thanks! Will do, Doreen! Happy to see Mason and Austin in the playoff lineup.

    GF – I had no idea Arod was roiding again because I would have feared for the Yankee season had I known that up front. I also believe that Andy Pettitte got hurt last season because he lied for Clemens. I think karma hits you where it hurts the most.

    I have total respect for people not believing in karma. I absolutely and unequivocally believe in it. And it certainly doesn’t negate my belief in God. Maybe you can connect the dots there yourselves. I believe in a just God, not one that metes out rewards for bad behavior.

    And 86w, about SF “enabling” Bonds. I think they enabled his ridiculously antisocial behavior because he was winning games for them. I don’t believe for a minute they knew he was juicing. And if you want to take a look at his personal karma, check out where he is right now in life and what has happened to his reputation. He’s a total pariah.

    Look at OJ. Karma caught up with him. And Clemens. You don’t know when it’s going to hit – but it does.

    But – if you don’t buy it, you don’t. It’s okay. A forum is for an exchange of ideas. I’m sure none of us – well most of us anyway – don’t go to bed in a twist because not everyone on the forum has bowed down to our mighty words.

    Win tonight and than let’s get it on with Boston. We are going to a wedding in New England this weekend. Long flight tomorrow and will have to deal with NESN for the games.

    I can’t imagine anyone in the Y’s organization but DRob taking Mo’s place.

    I also think that Girardi brought up Mo’s retirement as a way of giving Mo an out if he chose it, seeing he’s been on the retirement tour all season. That said, I don’t think there’s a snowball’s chance in hell of Mo changing his mind, not now anyway. Might he pull an Andy? I guess anything’s possible.

    Shame, there might be any number of reasons that things have gotten quiet here, if they have. I believe at least one is that some frontrunners have no need to be here because they are just that – frontrunners. I also bet that you’ll see a number of returns if the Yanks make the postseason. I’ve seen that happen before on forums. Not everyone stays and cheers a team on if the team isn’t looking great. I guess you could call those fans vanilla fans.

    Vanilla ceiling fans are prettier than vanilla baseball fans!

    What a wonderful moment for him!

    Totally agree Trisha! My words were what I believe. I respect you! Being an Engineer I am always looking for how things equate & balance.

    I too believe in a just God. I just don’t have the mind of God to know what that is. I respect God though!

  22. Occasional Poster September 4th, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Trisha’s misunderstanding of karma is now demonstrated to be complete.

    Jack Curry?@JackCurryYES3m
    Les Tietje was last White Sox P to beat Yankees in his debut. Did it in 1933

    “I too believe in a just God. I just don’t have the mind of God to know what that is. I respect God though!”

    And our bond was just strengthened even more – if that was indeed possible!

  25. Giuseppe Franco September 4th, 2013 at 5:05 pm


    I’m pretty sure we had already started hearing leaks about the A-Rod/Biogeneis stuff before the season began. But, I digess….

    Seems to me if karma explained the winners and losers every year then the team who gave away the most money to charity and helped the most little old ladies cross the street would be winning the WS and teams like the 1986 Mets and the Yankee and Red Sox teams helped by alleged PED users wouldn’t have won jack.

    But, to each their own, I guess.

  26. JSR September 4th, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    I hate when the Yanks face these first time rookie pitchers. Seems they always kick our butts. Gotta get him in deep counts and pitch count up.

  27. austinmac September 4th, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    While we’re philosophizing, I agree God should and must be just. Otherwise, that isn’t Godly. It seems we should follow suit. I don’t however profess to understand any of it, and perhaps I shouldn’t. I try to let my beliefs be within me. I try, not always successfully, to remember, judge ye, lest not ye be judged.

  28. Kevin September 4th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Even if “god” made baseball, he has no idea if the pitch will be a ball or strike. Think of it that way, because someone makes the rules, it doesn’t mean they have control of how everything plays out.
