Yankees let one get away in Cano’s return to the Bronx

CC Sabathia

There might have been some cheers mixed in, but hearing those lonely voices was nearly impossible in the overwhelming chorus of boos that greeted Robinson Cano’s every at-bat at Yankee Stadium tonight. Cano was unwelcome from the beginning, and that surely didn’t change when he drove in one run and scored another in the Mariners 6-3 win in the opening game of their only trip to the Bronx this season. Cano’s only hit was an infield single, and he struck out twice, but his RBI ground out drove in the first Seattle run in the fifth inning, and he singled, stole a base and scored a run in the seventh. The Yankees led 2-0 early in the game — Mark Teixiera homered for the third time since coming off the disabled list — but Cano’s fifth-inning RBI was followed immediately by a Corey Hart two-run double that put the Seattle in front for good. Mariners catcher Mike Zunino had four hits; the Yankees combined for five before a mild rally in the ninth. CC Sabathia, who’d done a good job limiting the damage in his past two starts, allowed four-runs in the fifth inning — three of them with two outs — to make this start feel a lot like his first three starts this season. He seemed to have the game under control early, then he had to be bailed out by Dellin Betances as things unraveled.

    “Beltran goes down looking.” Must be a NY thing for him…..

  2. NYY_Girl_Penny April 29th, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    wow Jeter is done he should have retired with andy and mo.

  3. Hassey April 29th, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    Our seemingly one giveaway game per series

    Need Ellsbury back

    Terrible home plate ball strike calling

    Roberts walked before his Big DP

    i hope you’re not among those who call girardi ‘binder joe’ because all the binders have is data (which should be considered)

    Lame let down of a game

  6. NYY_Girl_Penny April 29th, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    another year and another boring offense..

  7. Ys Guy April 29th, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    that was a helluva pitch, it broke back in and just barely got a piece of the plate. probably too close to take, but it didn’t look like a strike for most of the way in.

  8. SluggerBro April 29th, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    MLB needs to start punishing these umpires who make game ending calls because they just want to go home.

  9. bigdan22 April 29th, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    Wow that ump was just crap tonight. No problem. One game but I hope someone in the home office gets to look at this tape.

    Jeter AB was terribly weak. He doesn’t like playing in the bad weather anymore it seems. Hope there’s another option come October.

  10. NYY_Girl_Penny April 29th, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    that last pitch to beltran was clearly a ball tho.. the ump saved McCaan from failing.

  11. jmv April 29th, 2014 at 10:47 pm

    A game to forget. At least Dellin was great.

    I hate to lose with bad teams, but that’s baseball

    We need Ells back asap

    They need to put someone between McCann and Soriano

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2014 at 10:47 pm

    Well, we’ll get them tomorrow.

    Put this one in the books.

  13. jmv April 29th, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    And CC needs to calm down when things don’t go right

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    “Wow that ump was just crap tonight.”

    If there’s a God above, at some point we’ll get electronic game calling.

  15. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    The offense stunk tonight but once again the loss is on CC. He has been a 4 inning pitcher so far this year and then the wheels fall off. You really have to wonder if it is ever going to click with him and pitching with this lesser stuff. It stinks because the rotation is really short now but Girardi has to be ready to pull him before he implodes.

  16. chicken_stanley April 29th, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    You sound like the director of adult films

    ———————

    where was that all night? Would have made the game thread much more entertaining :)

  17. bbb51 April 29th, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    Phelps tomorrow and Felix in game 3…

  18. jmv April 29th, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    There’s a chance of rainout tomorrow

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    “And CC needs to calm down when things don’t go right”

    Yes.

    I’ll be happy when the cold and rainy weather leaves for good though. I just think the cold and windy nights have a bad effect on playing.

    Cc got squeezed big time:

    But hey, Yankees at first place!

  22. NYY_Girl_Penny April 29th, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    another 0 for 4 from soriano and mccaan.. from Jeter to Tex with a total of 21 AB’s we had 2 hits.. such a common thing to see with the NYY .. i cannot express my frustration. it’s pathetic. I’d break up this team and trade everybody, completely start over.. and no not as a panic move, the panic move was buying all free agents because they were backed into a corner and had no choice but to..

    Jeter will always get my respect but would’ve been better for him to just retire with andy and mo. if he didn’t get hurt i bet he would’ve.

  23. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    “Cc got squeezed big time:

    And that should piss off every single Yankee fan – but for some reason, some just take it in stride, as if he has no effect on the game.

    :evil:

    —-

    for now that is true. but watching these games are boring too.. and they won’t remain in first long if the hitting keeps being MIA

  25. Ys Guy April 29th, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    i think that was a great call by the ump on that last pitch. it had plate and was at the knee. most umps would have given up on it but he stayed with it and it came back into the zone.

    not good for the home team, but a good call by the ump, imo.

    of course you missed the part that it was practically in the dirt. but hey, you are to smart to admit you are wrong.

  27. bigdan22 April 29th, 2014 at 10:55 pm

    I just replayed that pitch. It was long and inside. Under no circumstances should Beltran have even offered at that pitch. When you consider the two ridiculous balls called on CC in the fifth, that negated the first two outs of the inning (the second one was dead center), I’m hoping this ump enjoys his supplemental paycheck.

    Did u click the link?

  29. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    Well, onward and upward. Tomorrow is another day. And as jmv so aptly pointed out, the Yankees are still in first place.

    But if it feels good to you put every game under the microscope so you can feel good about coming up with potential faulty conclusions, have at!

    Night all.

    :)

    I took your word for it. Why?

    Well, let’s hope there’s a game and a win for the Yankees tomorrow.

    Good night!

    I count five pitches in the zone called balls. There was one that couldn’t be more centered. I believe that was the second would be strike out of the fateful fifth inning.

    Sounds like 3-4 weeks to me with the rehab. No matter. Phelps should probably be starting anyway.

    That’s good news. He’ll be back in 15 days, rested and it works in favor of the innings’ limit

  38. pete2 April 29th, 2014 at 11:05 pm

    Here is the strike zone data. It looks pretty good IMO. He called a lot of low balls for strikes but for both teams. Yankees got a favorable call on a check swing from the 3B ump as well. Couple of of outside pitches for strikes, for both teams

    I have seen much worse.

    Those are turquoise, not green, balls in play, not called balls.

    Can they DL a suspended player? Not sure.

    Did the creatures really chant that crap to Cano? If so, screw them and their tired shtick.

    @joe_sheehan
    That’s the last time Derek Jeter will strike out during a Robinson Cano homecoming game.

    and no one was there to see it. :wink:

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

    No, have to wait for the suspension to be over since you can’t replace that spot on the 25 man during the suspension. Not sure if they can back date it when the suspension is over though. Maybe

  48. Hankflorida April 29th, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Maybe the Seattle Banjo’s taught the Yankees a late lesson on how to keep the line moving by hitting to all fields and beating the shift as in the 9th, Ichiro, Roberts and Gardner hit to the opposite field and got base hits. If Cashman is building a team of contact hitters to beat the computer defenses, he has to get the players to go along with his vision. The Yankee have to hit close to .300 with RISP as the three run homer is not the name of their game anymore.

  49. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2014 at 11:14 pm

    Oh great….
    ————-

    @DPLennon

    Pineda shut down for 10 days with Grade 1 strain of teres major muscle (below shoulder). Cashman said needs 3 or 4 weeks to build back up

  50. UnKnown April 29th, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Karma for Pineda cheating. What can you say… :wink:

    Going to have to really dig deep now and not give away games like tonight. Absolutely can’t blow games like this one many more times and be playing in October.

    Yeah yeah I know the Yankees had no chance – rain, umps, cold, umps, wind, umps, stadium lighting, umps, concession stands, umps, PA announcer, umps, video board, umps, infield dirt, umps and oh the umps. I mean with all those things against the Yanks tonight we just have to give them a pass. Les Miserables :lol:
