    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:18 pm
  • After reading the other thread, I’m rooting for Jeter to get a bunch of hits so IH might get to see 3,000. That would be pretty sweet.

    Atheose - SF June 13, 2011, 7:18 pm
  • Tex walks…bases loaded…ARod…
    0 outs.
    Bring the thunder.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:20 pm

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:21 pm
  • Most of the time. ;)

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:21 pm
  • Weak pop out but Jeter could have tested him…didn’t…
    If he went he would have scored, dude wasn’t even going to throw it home…christ.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:22 pm
  • Man Cano is trying to hit into a DP…keeps rolling it over but foul…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:24 pm
  • He needs to get a hit because rally killer Swisher is up next!!!!!

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:25 pm
  • Robbie K’s on a bullshit pitch…
    Bases loaded. No outs = no runs.
    The pathetic Yankees are back.
    NO CHANCE Swisher ACTUALLY comes through here…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:45 pm
  • Gardner walks…1st and 2nd, no outs…Cervelli to bunt? Can we maybe score now???

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:47 pm
  • Nope…0-2. Why does our whole team suck at laying down bunts?

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:47 pm
  • K on 3 pitches. We need a new backup catcher. Trade Cervelli and Swisher for a bucket of balls and some pine tar…
    JETER UP!!!!

    krueg June 13, 2011, 7:48 pm
  • 3-0 strike wasn’t even close…another chance to HIT!!!

    7 men LOB.
    3 innings.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:13 pm
  • How havent the yankees scored yet, any way its late here im off to bed, Krueg calm down a little, oh dear swisher should have caught that, thats not going to be good for your blood preasure

    Polf June 13, 2011, 8:18 pm
  • Swisher fucking us in the field too!!! First against Boston, single-handedly blowing CC’s start and now an ill-advised dive from his slow ass leads to a triple, RBI single follows…
    0-1.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:20 pm
  • Thanks polf…I’ll try but can’t make you any promises. :)

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:20 pm
  • AJ limits Swisher’s damage with another big K…
    0-1. Maybe score some runs at some point boys? Maybe?
    I would like to watch the hockey game. End them.
    GO CANUCKS GO!!!!

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:26 pm
  • Just got done with work in time to see a 123 inning. Yay.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:33 pm
  • Well, no one LOB and no failures with RISP when no one even hits the ball…
    0-1 after 4. Atrocious.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:35 pm
  • We’re back to completely sucking AG…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:35 pm
  • AJ’s pitching well though…about a week too late.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:36 pm
  • 0-2 in the hockey game…lame.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:39 pm
  • Nice top of the fifth…

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:40 pm
  • 5 scoreless innings for AJ…
    JETER COMING UP!!!!

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:40 pm
  • What a surprise…the cheap-ass Bruins took our Mason Raymond.
    Jeter pops out on 1 pitch.
    This game is over.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:43 pm
  • Jeter is limping?

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:43 pm
  • 3 pitches, 2 outs…we are fucking embarrassing.
    Jeter might be hurt. Limped off the field.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • And what happened for that other run? Did Swisher blow a read?

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • Yup.
    0-3 in the game now. Vancouver in 7.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • Meant “run”, not “other run”..

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • Yankees go down without a whimper which is our MO this season…
    Fuck.
    This.
    Team.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:45 pm
  • Carrasco is making the Yankees look foolish right now.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:45 pm
  • He dove for a ball he had no business diving for…it got past him to the wall, triple…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:45 pm
  • Guess I have to turn on the volume to find out what is happening.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:47 pm
  • Jeter out of the game.
    Injured.
    Season over.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:47 pm
  • Don’t bother AG…just start watching the Sounders or something.
    We are finished.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:48 pm
  • Swisher single-handedly loses us another game. Horrific hitting and putrid defense.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:50 pm
  • Mark Teixeira, you are very very good.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 8:51 pm
  • Great play by Tex to save Swisher from having to field a ball…whew…
    AJ is keeping us in it.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:51 pm
  • ARod flails away like a 12 year old that just discovered his first erection…K.
    Cano singles…
    Rally killer TRIES to hit into a DP…thankfully only got his asshole self out…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:57 pm
  • Out.
    We are terrible.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 8:59 pm
  • (stupid for me to say this because someone will hit a dinger) AJ is looking really darn good.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:03 pm
  • Sore calf for Jeter is the word.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:03 pm
  • Strike out, wild pitch makes it first and second.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:04 pm
  • New low…K…Cervelli can’t handle it…goes to the backstop…guy on 1st with 2 outs…
    No damage though.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:05 pm
  • Stretch time.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:07 pm
  • Bunt foul for strike three. Great.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:13 pm
  • Cervelli has no chance. Ks.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:15 pm
  • Hell of a play by Hannahan to get Nunez. Wow.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:16 pm
  • This is beyond ridiculous…this idiot pitcher threw like 50 pitches in the first 2 innings…we choke with MOB…failure.
    Darkness.
    Emptiness.
    Depression.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:18 pm
  • 0-4 in the hockey game too…
    Miller >>>>>> Thomas >>>>>>> Luongo

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:19 pm
  • Just watched the replay of Hannahan’s bare-handed grab and throw.. that’s one of the prettiest plays I’ve seen in a long time.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:21 pm
  • How many shutouts for our mighty offense this year???
    4. This will be 5.
    Leadoff single for the Tribe…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:21 pm
  • Yeah, it was pretty sweet…for a racist mascot having team.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:21 pm
  • AJ is keeping us alive…it feels weird to even say that.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:23 pm
  • Sizemore got completely frozen by that curve.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:23 pm
  • AJ looks good…about a week too late as I said earlier.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:25 pm
  • That was a fine performance by AJ.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • Girardi pulls him after AJ walks Brantley. Two outs, runners on 1st and 2nd to David Robertson.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:30 pm
  • Solid start for AJ…Swisher screwed him.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • Robertson start Asdrubal Cabrera with two breaking pitches for balls. Now a strike.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • Robertson got the job done.
    I would beg for runs but what’s the point…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:32 pm
  • The 2-1 is fouled off. 2-2: grounder to Teixeira to end the inning. Nice. Let’s get two runs and put this game in Mo’s hands.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:32 pm
  • No more Carasco. Good. Sipp on to face Granderson in the bottom of the eighth.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:36 pm
  • 1 out.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:36 pm
  • Loud, long, ineffective out for Tex. Yawn.
    2 outs.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:38 pm
  • Teixeira with a long out. Not quite enough. Sipp out. Pestano in. Cmon, ARod.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:39 pm
  • QUICKLY down 0-2…nice ARod…you against FB’s right down the middle?

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:41 pm
  • 3-2 now…swing over a breaking ball now?

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:42 pm
  • Walk.
    Cano.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:43 pm
  • ARod takes six pitches in a row for a walk, but Robi lines out to third. Oh well.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:44 pm
  • 1 pitch. out.
    Game.
    Set.
    Match.
    Blew and opportunity to game 0.5 game on the Sox. Tampa will probably win too. We should be in 3rd place in no time.
    Jeter probably to the DL. Time to be sellers and get younger. Ha. Never happen.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:45 pm
  • Swisher, Posada and Cervelli.
    If we pinch hit for Swisher and Cervelli, maybe…but not likely. Only champions walk people off 15 times in a season. This team is far from it.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:48 pm
  • Wow, expected a high scoring game. According to a quick search on Baseball-reference, this is the third time this season Burnett has gone 7+ and given up 1 run or less. In both other games the Yankees lost (he took the loss in one).

    Atheose - SF June 13, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • Here we go…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • Hard to score runs ath when your offense is a fucking joke…

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • Good relief by Robertson.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:52 pm
  • HR or nothing offense = wild card and first round exit

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:54 pm
  • Swisher grows moss.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:55 pm
  • Swisher stands at the plate with his bat on his shoulder like a fucking loser…4 pitch K.
    I cannot stand seeing him in the pinstripes. He is completely and totally worthless as a player. Nice guy, but FUCK HIM…he HAS TO GO!!!!

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:55 pm
  • Posada is also a statue.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 9:57 pm
  • Posada K’s.
    You fucking idiots may want to swing the bat. Another K looking..for what I’m not sure.
    Gardner for the tie???
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!
    Not.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:57 pm
  • 5th shutout of the season. Cannot score 1 FUCKING RUN???? AT HOME??? AGAINST THE FUCKING INDIANS???
    We aren’t even going to make the fucking playoffs.

    krueg June 13, 2011, 9:59 pm
  • Gardner tip K. Ball game.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 10:00 pm
  • At least the three pitches Gardner swung at were strikes.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 10:01 pm
  • errrmm.. the two pitches. Anyway, what a waste of a good outing by AJ.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2011, 10:10 pm
  • Sorry to see Jeter get hurt. That sucks, right on the brink of 3000.

    Atheose - SF June 14, 2011, 8:34 am
  • what a bummer wasting a good pitching effort…we just can’t seem to get it together…though taking 3 of 4 is still good…i’ll ask it again, is it too early to start whining about injuries?…i know it doesn’t help, and we just have to keep moving forward and hope the replacements plug the leaks or even do better than that…injuries are never good, but maybe some good can come out of it, like we finally get a prolonged look at some younger yankees…maybe future stars…[fingers crossed]

    dc June 14, 2011, 9:06 am
  • Injuries did not make our offense strand 7 runners in the first 3 innings or go 0-for-7 with RISP either…
    That’s sorry-ass Swishers fault. Blame him. For everything.
    Not to mention all of the “stars” had AB’s in the first 3 innings.
    We just suck this year dude. Injuries or not.

    krueg June 14, 2011, 9:58 am
  • sad, but true buddy…we can’t blame injuries because exactly as you say, the uninjured regulars are underperforming in epic ways…even some of the guys we lost were not exactly at the top of their game when they went down…soriano, martin, hughes, sanit, curtis…i’d even throw jeter in with that bunch, since he has not been contributing at the level we’d all hoped…if the chase for 3000 were not such a positive distraction, i suspect you’d hear even more about his position in the lineup and his defense…heck a couple of the guys on the DL never even got into a game in ’11: marte, feliciano…losing colon and joba probably hurt the most since they were actually contributing…

    dc June 14, 2011, 10:12 am
  • Can’t win every year man…just historically more than any other franchise. We had a nice run, time for some serious changes…
    First off? GET RID OF NICK SWISHER!!!!
