  • O’s and Ray’s lost so this would be a good game to…
    Who am I kidding.
    We have zero chance of winning.

  • 0-for-1 w/RISP

  • 0-for-2 w/RISP
    #3 and #4
    The MEAT of our order.
    $40 million of worthless.
    Fuck this.

  • The ALEast is bunching up considerably. The top 3 teams are all sporting losing streaks of 5, 3, and 2 games respectively while the bottom two teams are on 3 and 2 game win streaks. It’s the only division in which every team has a positive run differential and the only one where the two teams with the highest RD are the bottom two in the standings. By this weekend it would not be surprising if the entire division is within one game of one another in the standings. Who cares about any of the above? A frustrated Yankee fan looking for irrelevant data to discuss rather than the futility of the Yankees to push runs across the plate. Let’s go Ivan Nova. We need a shutout from you to stand a chance…

  • Raise your hand if you predicted the Mariners-Rangers game would stand at 17-2 in the 6th inning.
    Now raise your hand if you predicted it would be the Mariners on top.
    Bizarre.

  • Bases loaded with no outs for the Angels…
    Now watch a REAL team rake.

  • Nova is finished. Just like all homegrown Yankee pitching.
    Horrible. One year wonder because of ridiculous run support, i.e. Hughes.
    This franchise is in a tailspin.
    No direction…payroll ballooned with bloated, rotting old corpses for players.
    The Yankees are dead. It’s over.
    Ring the bell and bring out your dead.
    Please throw Cashman on the pyre first please. He needs to be put out to pasteur and shoot, then burned.

  • Game. Over.
    Season. Over.
    Way to cover 2nd Cano you piece of shit.
    Back to hockey…

  • Well getting out of that with one run on a sac fly is pretty good. Of course, getting into that position to begin with is horrible.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 10:29 pm
  • Two points to krueg for using the word “pyre” in a gamethread. I knew something about you reminded me of Jim Morrison.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 10:31 pm
  • Raul Ibanez is our scariest hitter. I laugh to keep from crying.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 10:33 pm
  • Swisher moves Ibanez to 3rd on the single. OK krueg – this one is for you. ALL the RISP-futility ends now. Crooked number coming soon.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 10:35 pm
  • On the other hand, they might just GIDP. Lovely.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 10:39 pm
  • So Suzyn Waldman just said that the annoying fake-to-3rd-then-throw-to-1st move will be a balk beginning next season. This is notable for two reasons:
    1. There are few things pitchers do on the mound that annoy me more than this move.
    2. This is the first time in history that Suzyn Waldman said anything remotely interesting.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 10:41 pm
  • Did we really just get a hit w/RISP?
    I must be seeing things.

    krueg May 30, 2012, 11:00 pm
  • Granderson launches one and it’s 3-1 with no outs. Hallelujah. Don’t now how to find the stat on what percentage of a team’s runs are off of HRs, but the Yankees have to be the most homer-reliant team in the game.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:01 pm
  • Cano crushed that one…

    krueg May 30, 2012, 11:02 pm
  • And just as I type that, Cano blasts a 2-run HR. 5-1 good guys.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:02 pm
  • As if to prove my earlier point, Suzyn says of Cano “he’s smiling…he knows he hasn’t been hitting the way he wants to hit”.
    How one could NOT know that they aren’t hitting the way they WANT to hit, I don’t know.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:04 pm
  • Robinson Cano has the prettiest swing in the game.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:06 pm
  • I am still not happy.
    HR or bust is no way to win.
    As we Yankee fans know all too well.

    krueg May 30, 2012, 11:07 pm
  • Kings take Game 1…
    Kopitar makes Marty his bitch on a breakaway.
    Wow.

    krueg May 30, 2012, 11:14 pm
  • AND Nova give it right back…
    Why? Because he blows.
    Clearly.
    All Yankee homegrown pitchers do.
    Unless they are in the bullpen or wear #46…but he came up when I was in college so…different GM.
    I’m not saying I want Cashman to die or anything, just not be with the Yankees. Anymore.
    Because he is a fucking joke and the worst GM in MLB.
    IH and I could EASILY put together a better team than this with $200 million.

  • Mike Trout is destroying the Yankees this series. Tie game. Meanwhile, the Celtics and Heat are in an OT war in South Beach.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:32 pm
  • Did I mention our defense is a fucking joke too??
    So to sum up this franchise…
    Fucking horrible offense.
    Fucking horrible pitching.
    Fucking horrible defense.
    Blow a GOD DAMN 4 RUN FUCKING LEAD IN ONE FUCKING GOD DAMN INNING????
    YOU ARE A FUCKING JOKE NOVA!!!!
    YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF WORTHLESS PIECES OF HOT GARBAGE!!!!
    I FUCKING HATE ALL OF YOU!!!!
    Except Jeter and Pettitte. Can’t hate them…
    And we are NEVER going to get Mattingly out of LA.
    I surrender. I am starting the “YANKEES SUCK” chant in my living room.
    My dogs are confused.

  • “IH and I could EASILY put together a better team than this with $200 million.”
    We’ll start with 40 mill for you, 40 mill for me, 20 million in annual “entertainment” expenses, and 20 million on facilities (19.8 million of which to luxury owner boxes and amenities), and 80 million on the team…

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:36 pm
  • Heat pull it out despite an all-time great performance by Rajon Rondo. I lost interest in pro basketball for years, but have gotten much more into it the past few years. Many many good teams, great stars, compelling matchups, etc.
    Meanwhile, Nova is preparing to give up the go-ahead run(s) to LA of A.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:51 pm
  • Nova gets out of it with the GIDP.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2012, 11:51 pm
  • Ibanez triples, Swisher sacs him in. 6-5 Yanks

    IronHorse (YF) May 31, 2012, 12:02 am
  • Can’t stand this any longer. Must sleep. Good night krueg. Hope to wake up to good Yankee news…

    IronHorse (YF) May 31, 2012, 12:08 am
  • Well, we won last night.
    I didn’t see it either.
    I guess I am the problem?
    I love your accounting of our $200 million IH, but you did forget to put some aside for ag???
    He has CHILDREN man!!! ;)

  • I’d turn it down. I tired of feeding my daughter’s diaper addiction. It’s old newspapers and duct tape from here on out.

  • There has to be some new-school hippie school of thought up there that diapers are fascist, no???

    krueg May 31, 2012, 12:19 pm
  • The hippie school of thought round hyah is that cloth diapers are the lesser of two environmental evils.
    We actually use cloth diapers…except when it’s inconvenient which is like half the time, haha. (Also, to unabashedly brag, my boy is 3 feet tall at 18 months–takes after his mom’s family in terms of height–so his body laughs at the proportions of cloth diapers which ideally would have gotten us all the way to toilet training…but no, we had to buy an extra-large set when he was a year old to go with his standard set and now he’s grown out of those too.)
    Uh, topic…congrats on the win! That AL East is hilariously packed in right now.

    Devine May 31, 2012, 1:34 pm
  • My family used cloth diapers on me…thus my left-leaning way of thinking.
