C'mon, Meat. Keep your wits about you and John Blaze your way through the O's.
Time for a win.
Let's Go Yan-Kees.
Patience today, hitters, please?
Whoa. With Bay, the Rays are fo' real.
(no animals were actually harmed during the posting of this comment)
short version, CMW is unlikely to be back this season, JD feels pain in his shoulder whenever he throws and thinks the shoulder will bother him all season.
Now commence with the stompin', damnit!
23 i'm not sure that was routine - a play he should have made and nomrally does - but not routine per se
But 3 is a nice start, especially for the ace.
55 I think he might be pressing a bit.
We're going to win today.
Joba's going to grit this one out for us.
Mark my words.
Oh, strong, Bobby! nice!
I fuggin' love when Bobby exhibits power.
Abreu's looking good!
What's next? the Afflack quack after every out?
At least the Sterling-read 'Geico' spots have the whole '15 out/ 15 minutes' thing happening, as awful as they are.
It's still way too early, but I'm not surprised.
This team will need a lot of help over the off-season even if the rest of this season plays out better than the first half.
I miss it!
please! bring back the PC Richard whistle!
SPONSORING STRIKEOUTS The Yankees are not selling the naming rights to their new stadium, but they have found a way to sell plays on the field. Since the All-Star break, every time a Yankees pitcher records a strikeout, the P.C. Richard whistle plays over the loudspeakers as part of a sponsorship deal.
How 'bout that Joba, eh?
What'd I say!
If Abreu has a second half like he did last season, the Yankees are going to have a hard time not picking up his option, regardless of the cost.
That's why the payroll that's coming off the books is, in part, a red herring. Their gross receipts are going to go through the roof next year.
Wow, Melky didn't hack away at the first pitch he saw.
Posada had his surgery this afternoon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. Dr. David Alcheck performed the procedure, which repaired his labrum and capsule damage. It will be 4-6 weeks before he can begin light exercises. The usual recovery time for these surgeries is a minimum of six months.
Get well ASAP, Jorge.
Not much noise out of Millar either. He looked toward Edwar, but didn't challenge.
Girardi did a lot of barking. Nothing more to see here.
Smooth easy swing, a no-doubter off the bat, just over the fence in right center.
Could have used some of this offense the last three games.
Don't look now, but the bullpen is (outside of Giese) filled with guys who have ridiculous K/9 rates.
2 more runs and I'll be happy 54 . Err, 1 more run!
If he can play a respectable CF, it's past time that he starts playing there, at the very least against LHP.
208 No, but I have an idea on how to find out; I'll let you know.
Good to see him recover and get Mora. He wasn't going to go much above 40 pitches (he maxed at 45 against Texas on July 1).
So there you go.
I'll be a bit happier when there is a "1" in front of that "3" in the runs column.
I am a bit happy right now.
cue the theme to ALSO SPRACHT!!!
Pudge for Farns!
Man, with Pudge as the starter and Molina as the backup, that's some death to opposing baserunners.
For Farnsworth! HA!
How the hell did Cashman pull this one off???
Alex has a new thread just for this.
What is Pudge's contract status? Surely this is some sort of salary dump? Can you imaging a Pudge-Posada tag team next season?
Marte replaced Hawkins, so who replaces the Whacker? IPK and Ponson/Rasner to the pen? Melancon?
He might not be a type A free agent - he had a terrible year at the plate last year. But I'd think he'd be a type B, anyway.
So Molina is basically back to BUC and Moeller is what, a backup for third still? Or is he gone too?
Seriously - this is out of left field.
I go away for a few hours and we're finally rid of Farns?
Is this true?
And for Pudge?
Oh my God, amazing! We're finally rid of Farns and Pudge goes the other way!!!!
Two fucking birds, man, two birds!
