Enough About Yesterday: Yanks-Sox Gamer II

With all the "what’s wrong with the Unit" and "why is A-Rod such a freakin’ headcase" claptrap, something was lost in the muddle: last night is over.  It’s now tonight.  And tonight there’s a game.  We fully expect a closer affair, I don’t know, something like 11-4 Red Sox. 

Discuss away.

  • With how well Schilling and Mussina have both pitched so far this year, it very may well end up being a _closer_ affair. I would be very happy to see this come down to a Papelbon – Rivera battle. I would be happier to get an early lead and then tack on a few insurance runs. I think 16 ought to cover it. Maybe we need 18.

  • I can’t wait to see how “the mouth” and “the moose” square off on the mound…this is going to be great.
    am I wrong os does MLB tv have the YES broadcast….AGAIN??

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:05 pm
  • I’m curious to see the “new and improved” Mussina. Not to mention the “Old and Improved” Schilling. Should be a barn burner.
    Go Sox!

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:05 pm
  • TheTree1918: the game is on ESPN if you have cable.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:07 pm
  • It’s a good thing the Yanks are back to the top of the rotation. That 5th starter killed them yesterday. Might have to DFA him.

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 7:09 pm
  • yeah I know, but I dislike the ESPN coverage, I was hoping for NESN coverage on MLBtv
    oh well, can’t win em all :D

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:09 pm
  • Mussina gets Youkalis to fly out to Matsui. One away.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:10 pm
  • what are they chanting at the stadium?
    I can’t make it out on ESPN…

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:10 pm
  • Mussina with strikes in his first pitches to the first two batters. Happy to see that.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:11 pm
  • Mussina looks good. He’s throwing everything over for strikes so far. He’s been 0-2 on both Youk and Loretta so far.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:11 pm
  • ‘Retta with the basekock.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:12 pm
  • Loretta hits a single to right past an outstretched Cano. Pitch was a fastball hung over the middle. Ortiz up.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:12 pm
  • On Moose’s win total: like many of his older compatriots, Moose lost a bunch of wins, or at least win opportunities, with the 1994 strike. Might wanna factor that in there….

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:13 pm
  • No HD broadcast here in NYC on my Directv package – it’s been preempted by an HD broadcast of Pirates/DBacks. Jeez, who would even want to watch that in lo-def?

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:13 pm
  • That was a strike. Squeezed.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • 2-1 was a few inches off the plate. 3-1 breaking pitch is fouled off to left to bring the count full.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • Kaat on his own here…

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:14 pm
  • Loretta was running on the pitch but Papi fouled it back.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:15 pm
  • I dunno, AG, I thought that was a pretty damn good pitch, and if the ump isn’t giving something like that the pitchers are going to have to be perfect.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:16 pm
  • Good defensive swings to extend the at bat. This is an exciting match-up.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:16 pm
  • papi is fighting him off over and over…

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:16 pm
  • Ortiz getting his shots in on balls over the plate. Moose always so much better when he’s NOT pitching out of the stretch. Danger signs blinking huge here.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:17 pm
  • PAPI HOME RUN!!!

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:17 pm
  • I thought it was a strike from the front, too, SF. The overhead showed it was a couple of inches, off, but you were correct, that pitch looked mighty good. Mussina will have to work at widening the plate.
    Papi.. my oh my. Two run shot, upper deck in right.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:17 pm
  • GONE. Papi. Unbelievable. Great at-bat. Though I think Mussina got jobbed on one of the pitches, honestly.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • Who’s yr big papi?
    YEAHH! PAPI GOES DEEP!

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • I give good sooth.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • Stop predicting the damn future,YF, you are too good at it.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • GodDAMN, friggin’ Papi just KILLS us. Keep it together, Moose, come on…

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • Good call YF. You sorta called that one.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:18 pm
  • Awww… Manny just missed one there…

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:19 pm
  • I saw the same replay, AG, and yeah, it might have been an inch off the plate, but the pitcher should get something so damn close, in my opinion.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:19 pm
  • Manny hits one rilly rilly hard but it goes foul left of the pole.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:19 pm
  • There ya go. Big out, Moose.

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • What did Kaat say? I got no sound on here.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • Tough call on Manny. Still, great pitch by Mussina.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • Mussina gets the call on the corner to retire Manny.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • Sarcasm, Spidey?

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:21 pm
  • up comes the Schill

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:21 pm
  • Alright. We’ll spot you 2. Noooooo problem.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:21 pm
  • Every pitch the Sox got good wood on in that inning were fastballs.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:21 pm
  • SF: What did Kaat say regarding the Ortiz homer? I think he said something about choking up a bit and shortening his swing as he was looking fastball after all those breaking pitches.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • A-Ger(bil): Doesn’t Mussina throw like twelve different kind of fastballs though?

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • Loretta: .261. I remember he was in the .210s not too long ago (.200s?). He’s coming around pretty nicely, it seems. Keep it up, kid!

    Devine May 10, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • Berman….uggggggg.

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • can I say how important it is right now for schilling to put the yanks down fast?

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • C’mon Johnny Damonic! Let’s get it started here.

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:24 pm
  • Can I echo those sentiments?

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:24 pm
  • Nah, no sarcasm intended. It actually was big for Moose to come back to K Manny, there.

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 7:24 pm
  • I”ll tell you this guys…whichever team scores more is gonna win this thing.

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • Schill vs. Damon. Maybe the wives’ feud will spill over…

    MJL in L.A. May 10, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • Johnny behind quickly on a called strike down the middle and a foul up first. Damon is fighting off fastballs off the plate, until Schilling misses high. Another good at bat from Johnny.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • Mrs. SF just said that “surprisingly, Damon looks even more like a neanderthal without the hair”.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • K! See ya in a few innings, Johnny D.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:26 pm
  • Man. That splitter to K Damon right out of the Clemens handbook.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:26 pm
  • damon 0-8 against the sox since he left
    nice swing big guy

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:26 pm
  • I know Schilling has a nice splitting thing there but that ball started below the plate.

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:26 pm
  • Brutal splitter knocks Damon out. One away.
    Matty: He moves it all over pretty well, except he hung three that inning.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:26 pm
  • Man. That splitter to K Damon right out of the Clemens handbook.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:26 pm
  • SF: Does Mrs. SF like being called ‘Mrs. SF?’

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:27 pm
  • Another very close pitch that could easily have been called a strike as Giambi takes it, 2 and 0.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:27 pm
  • Giambi ALWAYS gets those calls on the corner. The first pitch was a half inch off the plate, but the second one was a strike on the corner.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:28 pm
  • matty: Mrs. tree doesn’t liek being called Mrs. Tree if that helps ;)

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:28 pm
  • Borderline pitch at the knees takes the count full. Giambi gets a piece of the fastball to stay alive.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:29 pm
  • mm: she just said “it’s charming, feels like a cartoon character”. Not sure what that means.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:29 pm
  • Golfed it. Nice at bat by Giambi.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:29 pm
  • Darn, there goes the no-no.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:29 pm
  • Giambi pulls a splitter to right for a single that he had no business being able to get a bat on.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • Imminent redemption?

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • Matty i said the same thing…well I say that same hting after the first hit of every game lol

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • If she says charming the way my girl says “charming&rdqou; it ain’t charming. :)

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • That, my friends, was a horrible at-bat by A-Rod.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:31 pm
  • That was very bad.

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:31 pm
  • Curt left that one over the plate a bit, but Rodriguez didn’t swing anyway. Two Ks on the inning. 2-0 Sox after one.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:31 pm
  • Ring up E-rod
    not a fast inning, but a quick enough one

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:31 pm
  • ARod leaves the lumber on his shoulder on a straight fastball from Schilling. What on earth is he doing watching that pitch all the way?

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:32 pm
  • Man. A-Rod must have been looking for the split. That thing was right in the wheelhouse. But you gotta like the Schilling strategy. He’s having trouble with high heat, so just go right at ’em until he proves he can handle it.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:32 pm
  • Tek takes a fastball for strike three.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:35 pm
  • Tek goes down. Nicely handled by the Moose.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:35 pm
  • Varitek is channeling Jorge Posada 2005.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:35 pm
  • Captain leading it off. Start us off Tek.
    Man, thats a pitch you’d like Tek to crush. The 2-1 fastball across the heart of the plate. Then he takes a high curvey-something across the middle of the plate for strike three… yeesh. Tek looks as good as Rodriguez at the plate.
    here’s ol’ “Doubles” Lowell.

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:35 pm
  • in a little while I will tel you why I have both MLB Tv and ESPN running….because sooner or later they will cut to Bonds…I hate bonds.

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:35 pm
  • “That ‘C’ is like a hockey thing”…?

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:36 pm
  • Hanger. Crap.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:36 pm
  • Lowell takes it yard to left. Red Sox 3, NYY 0.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:36 pm
  • Doubles hits it outta heeeeeeere!

    mattymatty May 10, 2006, 7:36 pm
  • screw a double HAVE A HOMER!!!!

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • And the former YANKEE PROSPECT comes through.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • Veterans day at the stadium it seems.

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • ACK! Mike Lowell?? Hanger from Moose?

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • Posada had set up away, and Mussina hung it.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • Paul O’Neill just said “that ball hung a little”. Understatement of the night so far.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • Uh oh.. shallow right center. Whew. It’s caught.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • Idiotic ESPN is already comparing Pujols hr rate against Bonds’ 73 hr season. Is there anyone at that network who posesses a freaking brain?
    LOWELL!!!

    Tom sf May 10, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • Cabrera uses two hands and retires AGon.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:39 pm
  • Alright. We’ll spot you 3. Cake.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:39 pm
  • can I say how important it is right now for schilling to put the yanks down fast?

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:40 pm
  • Can I say how important it is for the Yanks to score against Schilling some time during the game?

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 7:41 pm
  • Sunday May 14th: Gary Sheffield replica bat day. Doesn’t say if it comes with clear or creamy pine tar.
    Sorry, couldn’t resist. Get well soon Sheff, we need you. Yesterday.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:41 pm
  • The “chill” is pitching pretty damn well Nick….I am happy with his year so far.

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:42 pm
  • Matsui gets underneath one and pops out to center. One away.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:42 pm
  • Jorge! Look at those WHEELS. Blazin’.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:43 pm
  • Posada doubles to the wall in right center, fastball down the middle.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:43 pm
  • ” Gary Sheffield replica bat day. Doesn’t say if it comes with clear or creamy pine tar.”
    Is that where the tiny balls comes from??

    Tom sf May 10, 2006, 7:44 pm
  • I like this situation for the Yanks. Cano and Melky can hit anything.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:45 pm
  • Cano takes two pitches inside to get up 2 and 0.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:45 pm
  • the chances of Cano walking this at bat: 0%

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 7:45 pm
  • runners at the corners, come on curt….

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:46 pm
  • MORE SOOTH!

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:46 pm
  • Posada hits a pitch that Schilling hung just below the waist to center. Posada had to hold up because it might have been playable. Loudest crowd of the night as Bernie comes up.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:46 pm
  • Bernie “Angry Man” Williams to the plate

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 7:46 pm
  • BERNIE!!!! 3-1. And here comes the Melkster.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:47 pm
  • Kay just quoted Bernie, saying, “Never in my life, at any level, have I been thrown out of a game. There is absolutely no excuse for what I did, and I am sorry I did it.” Then Bernie Sac flies to center to score Posada.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:47 pm
  • small ball gts the yankees a sac fly..
    good quality basball there…even if it is the yanks.

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:47 pm
  • That’s the first time I saw the Bernie thing…that’s stupid and there is no reason for any more talk about it.
    Meawhile…did yuo hear that Joe MOrgan thinks that Curt Schilling thought he could “cruise”?

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:48 pm
  • I really wish Joe Morgan would be fired.
    I know that’s an unoriginal statement, but every fiber of my being cries for his removal from any broadcast booth.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 7:49 pm
  • Devine, you and me both…you and me both..

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:50 pm
  • I’m so glad that I am watching the YES feedand not ESPN.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:51 pm
  • but then the Fire Joe Morgan site wouldn’t exist.

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 7:51 pm
  • Schilling, dare I say it, looks bad He just doesn’t have it this inning.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:51 pm
  • Cabrera with a great at bat, fouling off quality pitches, and works the walk off Schilling.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • MELKY!!!!!!!!! Brilliant. Totally.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • walk the melky way?
    getting to the top of the order…curt come on man, you are not randy johnson.

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • Personally I like Joe Morgan in ways…but, it’s just very tough sometimes. I mean, even I know that Schilling always “phones it in.”

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • Damon jumps on a first pitch fastball and pulls it. Same thing as last at bat, hits it 20 rows above the tarp up first on a wire.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • This is already starting to feel like a game where the Red Sox are going to need to score a few more.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • come on Johnny

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 7:53 pm
  • Schilling gets a call on a borderline pitch, Damon is behind 0 and 2. He then fouls one off just to stay alive.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:53 pm
  • Can’t believe he even touched that pitch.

    walein May 10, 2006, 7:53 pm
  • Jeez, YF, if I isolated your last two comments, it’d be hard to know that the Yankees got a sac fly and a walk. Relax, dude – I am worried for you.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:53 pm
  • Ick, he walked him? Don’t let Damon start now…

    Devine May 10, 2006, 7:53 pm
  • Damon is now 0-9 against the sox since leaving them
    thanks to a GREAT catch by man ram

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:54 pm
  • Damon hits a shot to left, and somehow Manny who had to run a long ways, makes a great catch on the run.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:54 pm
  • MANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I mean, Manny caught a fly ball. (apologies to YF)

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:54 pm
  • Adventures in Manny. Boy did he almost misplay that.

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:55 pm
  • Manny just stuck his arm out, and the ball landed in the pocket. Saved two runs.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:55 pm
  • Was it a great catch? or a great catch for Manny?

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 7:55 pm
  • thanks to a GREAT catch by man ram
    somehow Manny who had to run a long ways, makes a great catch on the run.

    Adventures in Manny. Boy did he almost misplay that.
    I call this “Lessons in Subjectivity”.

    SF May 10, 2006, 7:56 pm
  • after 2:
    moose 34 pitches
    Schilling 41 pitches
    in case anyone cares

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 7:56 pm
  • He was playing Damon so shallow, I’m impressed he got back for that. He did take an interesting route to the ball, kind of arcing, in that lopey run of his, but nice catch.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:56 pm
  • On that last play, John Sterling said, “…and it’s driven to left!…OVER the head of Ramirez!…who makes the catch…” I like Sterling but calls that kill me.

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 7:57 pm
  • Has Manny done something dumb in left field yet? Maybe once this year? He’s really playing defense well out there.
    Which means, NickYF, that the distinction between those two questions is narrowing.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 7:57 pm
  • calls like that, that is

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 7:58 pm
  • SF: Interesting take on that. I suppose the somehow is kind of ambiguous. I meant it more that he was so shallow, but he did get a great jump.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 7:58 pm
  • Subjectivity? Look at the replay. He got stuck reaching halfway behind his back for the ball. Is Sheff also a defensive genius?

    YF May 10, 2006, 7:59 pm
  • Dribbling comebacker to Moose from Youk. One away.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:00 pm
  • Jeez, YF. Relax. I was making fun of all of our perceptions of things. You are mighty testy, getting your bee in a bonnet because I was pointing out how we all see the game differently? My gosh…Does A-Rod’s shrink have an opening?

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:01 pm
  • looks like Moose is settling in a bit…

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 8:02 pm
  • Mussina, up 0-2 on Loretta, misses off the plate to bring it 2-2. Sets up a breaking ball that freezes Loretta to ring him up.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:02 pm
  • Yeah, it sort of feels all or nothing with the Sox and Mussina right now.

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:02 pm
  • Well, at least he won’t steal a base!!!

    walein May 10, 2006, 8:02 pm
  • ortiz with a seeing eye single up the middle.

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 8:03 pm
  • The shift fails as Ortiz hits it where no one is on the right side.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:03 pm
  • the Tree goes for the jinx

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 8:03 pm
  • Papi. CLUTCH.

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:03 pm
  • Ortiz and Giambi are sharing a laugh at first. Maybe something about facing the shift?

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:04 pm
  • I like posada jumping for the ball, you would have to lose the ball in a black hole for papi to run to second lol

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:05 pm
  • Manny hit the ball off the wall in left. Thought it was a dinger. Second and third, two outs. It was an offspeed pitch that was outside, but up a bit.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:05 pm
  • What is a “sharp fly ball”, anyway? Something between a high one and a line drive?

    Devine May 10, 2006, 8:06 pm

  • How ’bout a little single here, Trotsky?

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:07 pm
  • Trot is taking pitches as Moose had maybe one pitch that could have been a strike this appearance, but is appearing a bit off right now. Mussina gets a breaking ball over on the 3-0 to get a strike, but misses on the next pitch to walk the bases loaded for Tek.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:08 pm
  • come on Tek, would be a great time for your 3rd? grand slam :D

  • Ballgame here, right?

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:09 pm
  • Maybe Moose wanted to face Tek more anyway.. he’s 5 for 48 lifetime against Moose lifetime according to Michael Kay.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:09 pm
  • I can’t help but think that they pitched around Trot a little to get to Tek.

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:10 pm
  • Tek fights off the outside pitch 1-2 to keep the at bat alive.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:10 pm

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:12 pm

  • SF? Hit there by Varitek blows things open pretty good.

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:12 pm
  • Yeah, a big lead, with Schilling struggling and 7 innings left to play. “Ballgame” is a little severe, a little fatalistic, especially for a vaunted Yankees fan…

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:13 pm
  • Finally. the Yankees get an egg on the board. Let’s see if they can do something against Schill; Jeter, Giambi, ARod coming up.
    Interesting about that play with ARod. He could play to any base; Ortiz, hadn’t gotten more than 10 feet down the line and was actually watching the play at third. Manny was directly in front of him for the tag. Didn’t see where Tek was but we know he is not fast. He threw to first. I guess it’s the most natural play for his motion, but still something that made me think.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:14 pm
  • and 5-1 early in the game is not good, but come on, it’s not “ballgame”. A GS would have been a different story, obviously.

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:14 pm
  • Jeets had a pitch there….

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:15 pm
  • Jeter gets lucky as the 1-2 drifts foul a couple rows out of Nixon’s reach. Wind is blowing 8mph, right to left.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:16 pm
  • Shoot.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 8:17 pm
  • Jeter looks good with a base hit to right. He watched the ball right off the end of the bat, going with it in the hole.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:17 pm
  • And that one goes for a single.

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:17 pm

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:18 pm

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 8:20 pm
  • ARod pops it out to Youk. Matsui gets under one, popped up to Manny. Two away. Matsui swung under the ball last at bat too.
    Joe: You can’t tell because you broke all your damned lamps last night and now the room is dark. :)

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:26 pm
  • That pitch from Schilling was directly in Giambi’s power zone. Giambi had it all the way.
    Cabrera catches the pop-out (yes, with two hands) from Lowell for out number one.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:26 pm

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:26 pm
  • Who’s the fatalistic one now!

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:27 pm
  • Well at least it took 3 whole pitches for Harris to get rung up.

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:27 pm
  • Harris is rung up quickly as Mussina moves the ball inside back to the middle and Harris twists away.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:28 pm
  • Special. Those pitches all actually strikes, folks at home/on internet? (They probably were, considering the hitter, just asking)

    Devine May 10, 2006, 8:28 pm
  • “fatalistic” or “realistic”? You see these rosters? And I was talking about an inning, YF.

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:28 pm

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:34 pm
  • Bernie is fouling off a fair number of pitches. Schilling leaves a fastball over the middle that Bernie fouls off. Got away with one there.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:35 pm
  • Bernie then gets rung up to bring up Cabrera with one away.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:36 pm
  • Williams looks silly as he Ks, yet again. How many strikeouts for him this series?

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:36 pm
  • Cabrera is down 0 and 2 but is fouling off pitches like someone with quite a bit more plate experience than a 21 year old. Doesn’t chase a splitter in the dirt.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:37 pm
  • Just foul in pseudo-bartman territory.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:38 pm

    Not easy.

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:42 pm
  • That bases loaded strand is looking big right now… Especially if Mussina continues to look stronger…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:43 pm
  • Jeter makes a catch in left center that scared the hell out of me. Over the head, falling down with his back to the plate. Looks like he lost it for a second.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:45 pm
  • Jeter looked bad on that play, followed by Berman and Morgan talking about what a great defensive player he is… *sigh*

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:46 pm
  • Loretta taking all the way on 3-0 and Mussina feeds a strike on the outside corner. The 3-1 is a high fly to left, which Matsui gets under. Here comes Papi.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:46 pm
  • Let’s get that lead back, Papi!

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:47 pm
  • Pitch one is a borderline ball, outside. Pitch two, is a strike at the knees. 12-6 breaking ball is swung at for a strike. Comes back with the same pitch a bit lower that Papi takes for a ball. 2-2 is a line drive to right for a single.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:48 pm
  • Ortiz upping the BA with every at bat

    TheTree1918 May 10, 2006, 8:48 pm
  • All right Papi! Slump officially over, as he’s 3-for-3. Now, Manny, let’s drive him home!

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:48 pm
  • Jeter’s defensive “abilities” are based entirely on the fact that he screws up routine plays, and then hustles to recover, turning routine plays into plays into web gems.

    Hunter May 10, 2006, 8:49 pm
  • O’Neill is saying how Yankees fans need to appreciate how good a hitter Ortiz and Ramirez are.
    Mussina misses the first pitch for a ball, then gets a fastball by for one and one.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:50 pm
  • Another one for Melky Two Hands.

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:50 pm
  • Ramirez lifts a popout to Cabrera to end the inning.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:50 pm
  • Manny shook his head after he hit that pitch… I still can’t believe the Sox went from 3-1 to tied up in the five minutes it took me to drive to work…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:51 pm
  • I don’t care what the situation is down the road, but Willie Harris should not be batting again.

    SF May 10, 2006, 8:51 pm
  • I don’t agree with that theory Hunter. I think that David Ortiz only gets so many home runs because his mother called all of the players in the league and told them that he has entetalitus.

    walein May 10, 2006, 8:51 pm
  • “Jeter’s defensive “abilities” are based entirely on the fact that he screws up routine plays, and then hustles to recover, turning routine plays into plays into web gems.”
    As a Yanks fan who thinks Jeter’s not a good fielder, I have to disagree with this analysis. He does routine fine for the most part. He’s unable to get to balls other short stops get to up the middle. That’s his biggest flaw as a fielder. It’s his range. He looks fundamentally sound otherwise and field grounders to him cleanly.

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 8:52 pm
  • Bonus points for the reference, walein. “How good of a hitter?” “Well, er, you’re not that good…” “Hooray!” “…but you don’t entirely suck either, so I wouldn’t get your hopes up.”

    Hunter May 10, 2006, 8:53 pm
  • Let’s go Jeets!

    YF May 10, 2006, 8:54 pm
  • All right, Schill! Now keep that up for the next three innings…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:55 pm
  • Hunter: “entirely” based? I agree that Jeter gets too much credit for his defense from some announcers and too many Yankees fans, but do you mean as a blanket statement that Jeter doesn’t have the ability to play defense on the level of the Major Leagues?
    Jeter K swinging for out one.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 8:55 pm

    Devine May 10, 2006, 8:56 pm
  • great follow-up inning so far by the heart of the order.

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 8:57 pm
  • It’s more just a sense of frustration at the media, that the plays that get the most attention tend to be ones that seem to look a whole lot better than they actually are. It was hyperbole, on my part, I apologize. Berman and Morgan are starting to get to me riled up a bit…

    Hunter May 10, 2006, 8:57 pm
  • Um, Joe Morggan, who thinks A-Rod’s not great?

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 8:57 pm

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 9:06 pm
  • The thing is, Schills doesn’t look that bad to me here. He’s getting his ks. He’s not walking too many. The dingers have come on some bad choices. Next outting, he could go 7 and give up nothing. RJ—different story.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:06 pm

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:07 pm
  • YF: It’s true, Schilling hasn’t looked as bad as RJ last night, but remember that several times last night, RJ’s troubles started with two outs. Just curious is all.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:08 pm

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 9:08 pm
  • Nixon hits a ball right at Giambi that he muffs. E3.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:09 pm
  • Location location location. His cut fastball is doing nothing, and it’s not like he’s had a great changeup tonight. Has he even thrown a curveball? So he has what, two pitches? If you have a 50-50 shot, and guess right and the location is off against this lineup then forget it. Beckett last night had a great fastball, a tough change, and a hard-breaking curve. Schilling isn’t even close to that tonight. I see something different than you, saw it some time ago.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:09 pm

  • Harris should not have been in there. I don’t understand the reasoning at all.

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • Sweet heavenly f***! Why is he up there? Why?
    (Prove me wrong, you…oh, too late.)

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • Great play! Giambi GOLD at first! ;)

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • Harris is up. Takes first breaking pitch for a strike. Mussina shakes off a few pitches, then brings a breaking pitch that Harris hits on one hop to Giambi, steps on the bag, end of inning. Efficient work from Mussina that inning.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • Harris is the new Bathroom Break. Why on earth is he still in there?

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:13 pm
  • Hudson…you don’t really want to feel the wrath of Sturtz do you?

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:13 pm
  • All you Yankees fans: there is a stellar example of the inexplicable Tito decision. The frustrating, brain-cramping, in-the-moment-please-consider-firing-this-guy kind.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:14 pm
  • maybe Willie Harris’s lack of skillz are like the elephant in the room and Tito is afraid to approach the topic

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:14 pm
  • I fear no one named “Tanyon.”

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:15 pm
  • Sabres fans are going _crazy_ at the bar as they Afginekov (sp?) jst scored on Ottawa. Lots of Buffalo fans here. Weird. I grew up 50 miles from Buffalo.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:15 pm
  • here comes Mike Holtz. I really want this guy to raise his arms and shout “Mike Holtz” like the Steve Holt character on Arrested Development.

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:15 pm
  • Holtze? I can’t even spell his name.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:16 pm
  • Better yet, perhaps the Sox can sign a guy named Bob Loblaw.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:16 pm
  • Bernie hitting from the right side as Tito finally channels SF and pulls Schill for Holtz.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:16 pm
  • Just finished my last final of law school and the Bombers are up 6-3. The night is looking up. =)

    bloodyank78 May 10, 2006, 9:17 pm
  • Ready to feel Bern?

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:17 pm
  • Count full after Bernie dropping behind 0-2.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • Called the Bern!

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • Bernie hits it to the 399 marker in left center with a leadoff double. Nice, Bernie.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • Crushed by Bernie! Nice.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • Any pitcher that lets Bernie Williams hit a ball that hard is suspect in my mind…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:19 pm
  • Inauspicious start for Holtz.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:19 pm
  • yikes. Is Mike Holtz the lefty Rudy Seanez?

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:19 pm
  • Cabrera is bunting. He looks like he has never done it before in his life.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:19 pm
  • C’mon, Melky, you can screw this up. Pop a bunt up.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:20 pm
  • nice effort by Holtz there. That dive alone elevates him to the 3rd best pitcher in our bullpen IMO

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • Really don’t like the bunt there. Why? Almost backfires completely. And even with the success you give up the out.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • Sac bunt gets Williams to 3rd.
    I want to see Manny throw Bernie out at the plate.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • Great play by Lowell to get the throw to first after Holtz laid out on a great effort to catch the popped bunt from Cabrera. Bernie advances to third. Damon up, single up the middle to score Bernie.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • I’ll predict Damon gets his first hit against the Sox here.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • This game is officially out of hand.

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:21 pm
  • Take the run, though!

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:22 pm
  • Take the run, though!

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:22 pm
  • I win.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:22 pm
  • RBI single by Bubba Damon. 7-3.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:22 pm
  • stupid mike holtz.

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:22 pm
  • Holtz is gone.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:22 pm
  • Still trying to win this one, ‘ey Francona?

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:23 pm
  • Francona is making sure the Sox don’t have to face Rivera tonight.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:23 pm
  • wish they’d gone with Bob Loblaw instead

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • Now my smile is a shit-eating grin.
    Damon plates Berine. =)))

    bloodyank78 May 10, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • It’s funny. I was positive the game was over when Lowell hit that home run to make it 3-0. That’s baseball for ya.

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • Why must Theo fill the Boston benches with garbage?
    It’s pretty thin stuff between the stars and the bit players.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • Mussina is at 98 pitches. I wonder if we will see him next inning?
    Timlin is in for the Sox.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • Damon was running on the first pitch from Timlin. The hit and run fails as Jeter fouls it off.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:25 pm
  • I have a relaly good feeling about Giambi v. Timlin…if that happens.

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:26 pm
  • Unlucky for Jeets.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:26 pm
  • Damn, almost a DP.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:27 pm
  • If you can hear it, O’Neill’s commentary is quite interesting regarding batting/pitching match-ups on YES.
    Jeter lines it to Loretta; Damon is safe back at the bag.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:27 pm
  • That first pitch might have been what I was feeling.

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:27 pm
  • Timlin, like Mohr, with the camo undergear. BOOOOO!

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:27 pm
  • Hudson, Holtz is a guy who, if the Sox are trying to keep this game within spitting distance, shouldn’t even be in. Timlin should have been pitching this inning. It’s not really fair to expect the worst pitcher in the bullpen (and yes, Holtz can be counted on less than Seanez) to come in and throw lights out. Francona was basically rolling the dice there, seeing if he could scrape an inning out of the new guy and save the bullpen since they basically have 2 innings to catch up. Let’s see who pitches the rest of the game.
    I don’t think this one is on Theo.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:28 pm
  • Timlin is a hardcore right-wing hunter type.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:29 pm
  • Giambi, crowding the plate, takes a pitch down the middle that he played off as it was inside. 0 and 2. Pitch out was on anticipating the hit and run. Curious call.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:29 pm
  • See, I don’t understand this managing at all. Why not have Timlin start the inning? Francona is in moron mode right now.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:29 pm
  • I heard that Theo had wanted Eddie Veddar but lost a bet to Stone Gossard and had to take Holtz’ contract.

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:29 pm
  • SF, one word: Arroyo.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:30 pm
  • Giambi works the count full. I like this sitcheayshun.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:30 pm
  • Well, my feelings are for sh#t!

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:30 pm
  • Timlin got him.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:30 pm
  • Yeah, because WMP has been just awful.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:30 pm
  • Giambi works the count full and then bites on an inside, low breaking pitch to fan.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:31 pm
  • Just looking at the boxscore… Harris is back to batting .100. Why on earth would you play him instead of Wily Mo? I don’t care what the matchups might look like, there is no way that Wily Mo does a worse job. (And he’s been fielding decently lately, too.)

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:32 pm
  • Start us off right, you light-hitting, glove-only mofo!

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:33 pm
  • Gerbil < sooth

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:33 pm
  • Oooh, Myers and Proctor warming… I like that!

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:34 pm
  • Mussina passes 100 pitches…this probably doesn’t mean very much.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:34 pm
  • SF: You would be proud. I think they just did an Idol update on the YES network. The world has gone mad.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:35 pm
  • Youk is really turning into a strikeout machine who alternates brilliant games with poor ones.

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:35 pm
  • Mussina’s breaking pitch is still snapping really well.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:35 pm
  • Wonder if Posada had held on if they would have given Moose that one?

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:36 pm
  • Idol with the shocker. Chris Daughtry going home. As improbable as a Sox comeback tonight.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:36 pm
  • Youk is defending the plate well at 2-2.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:37 pm
  • Moose with the K! NICE.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:37 pm
  • Mussina burns Youk on a 2-2 curve.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:37 pm
  • Which one is Chris Daughtry?

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:37 pm
  • Mussina burns Youk on a 2-2 curve.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:37 pm
  • Dude…I’m on the West Coast! You’ve ruined my night…also, crying for Daughtry.

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • Here we go with Myers v. Papi…

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • Loretta gets on.
    Torre’s pulling Mussina.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • MF Loretta! Singles to left, and Joe comes out to pull Moose. Standing ovation. Crowd is rilly rilly loud.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • Loretta on base for Papi, to face Myers presumably.. probably our last shot at a comeback here

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • Tsk. Tsk. SF watching American Idol, not his idols.
    And Moose pulled after the single. Not his best outting, but worked through it.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:38 pm
  • Loretta to .263.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:39 pm
  • Sorry, W.
    Yankees fans becoming incredibly indiscriminate with their curtain calls. 2nd inning homers? May 10th solid pitching efforts? Are you kidding? What’s next: Tanyon Sturtze gets one for only giving up 2 earned runs in 2/3 of an inning?

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:39 pm
  • Ortiz, two outs, one on, Myers coming in. Pitch to the talented bastard. This is good stuff for baseball fans to watch.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:40 pm
  • Mike Myers brings his dreaded “deer in the headlights” stare to the mound. oh the drama!

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:40 pm
  • (Walein: Another spoiler… Vader is Luke’s father.)
    I’m not getting my hopes up here for Papi. Lightning rarely strikes twice.
    Except in the ALCS, 2004.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:41 pm
  • I still don’t understand Francona. If you’re going to use Timlin after Holtz, why not use Timlin BEFORE Holtz. Bad leveraging. Very bad leveraging.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:41 pm
  • SF: Good point. Maybe that’s what fandom is devolving to, the highlight play above the game.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:41 pm
  • Strike two, Loretta takes second uncontested.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:42 pm
  • Myers comes with an offspeed on the 2-2 and Papi fouls it off to stay alive.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:43 pm
  • Go high inside on that pitch and he swing through it!

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:43 pm
  • Is this really the situation that they got Myers for? Ortiz up with the Sox down by 4 runs and 7 outs to go? What are the splits for all their other relievers against Ortiz in this situation?

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:43 pm
  • That Yankee shift might be the dumbest thing ever.

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:44 pm
  • How does Ortiz beat out a grounder?!?

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 9:44 pm
  • No way Hudson. You’re lying! Where is my hand?
    By the way…Joe Morgan was just proven very very right.
    Hold me.

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:44 pm
  • Papi beats out the slow roller to Cano, playing depp on the shift. Papi has wheels. Papi is 4 for 4.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:44 pm
  • nice lazy throw by Cano. Ortiz shows his hustle for the 2nd straight night. Haters be damned!

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:44 pm
  • Ortiz the speed demon beats out the shift!
    1st and 3rd for Manny.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:44 pm
  • Uggg….and now we are going to Proctologize it up!

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:45 pm
  • Cano changed his angle to that ball. Is keeping Papi in the park a victory?

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:45 pm
  • Time to trade Myers for someone who can pitch in another situation besides that one, and come to think of it, one who can pitch in that situation. The formula is flawed.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:46 pm
  • Manny, I named one of my new kittens after you (Aristedes–Ari for short). Do somethin’ here. You’re probably our last shot at this.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:46 pm
  • MLB.tv is using the YES broadcast. Hard to believe it, but I’d actually rather listen to Steinbrenner’s flunkies than Morgan.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:47 pm
  • Don’t you wanna go to Farns here? Proctologist has been solid. But this is what Farns gets the big money for.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:47 pm
  • Proctor with one hit in his career against Proctor in four at bats, but it was a dinger. Proctor leads off with a fastball low and off the plate. Why not Farns?

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:47 pm
  • Mike Myers is flawed. Way to sign him to a 2-year deal Cashman. How much is he makin9, $6 mill per?

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:47 pm
  • Hey Devine, I named my kitten after Manny, too!

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 9:47 pm
  • Manny almost times the breaking ball that Proctor hung inside. Could’ve easily been a liner over the left field wall.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:48 pm
  • I think the entire left side of Yankee stadium are still hiding behind their seats after that.

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:49 pm
  • Manny Ks. About kills our hopes.

    Manny–not awesome.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:49 pm
  • All credit to the Proctologist.

    YF May 10, 2006, 9:49 pm
  • Torre proves me unsooth. Proctor gets Manny on the fastball to end the threat.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:49 pm
  • You called that one, YF. Not.
    (Hey, if you’re gonna get the credit you gotta take the heat too!)

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:49 pm
  • Wow

    walein May 10, 2006, 9:50 pm
  • The Stadium radar is such bull. Even the New York papers today were saying that it is inflated by about 4 mph.
    You could see that Manny wasn’t fully set for that pitch. That may be the last big opportunity to tighten up this game. Can’t help but think back to Tek leaving the bases loaded earlier.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:50 pm
  • Stay frosty, folks. Not likely to win. Never impossible, though.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:51 pm
  • Proctor overpowers Manny. Gotta love how far he’s come.

    Spidey May 10, 2006, 9:51 pm
  • No disrespect to God-fearing/loving Americans, but can’t they just play “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”, and keep deities and jingoism out of it? It’s not like they don’t already play the National Anthem or something.

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:51 pm
  • I would feel much more comfortable if ARod/Matsui/Posada widen the gap a smidgen.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:52 pm
  • I hope it’s obvious to Torre that Proctor is the best bridge to Farns then Mo. Strikes out Manny, and this past weekend he struckout Texeira w/bases loaded. The guy’s legit.

    bloodyank78 May 10, 2006, 9:52 pm
  • Okay, even I have trouble remaining positive in the face of Tavarez vs. heart of Yankee lineup.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 9:52 pm
  • Do the Yanks still cart out that big-eared blowhard for Gobbless Amuricka?

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:52 pm
  • Gerbil, you’re talking like a Sox fan pre-2004.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:53 pm
  • Tavarez in to very possibly set off a brawl.

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:53 pm
  • Might as well use Tavares now, no use wasting one of our good arms. Heck, maybe they’ll be a fight.

    Hunter May 10, 2006, 9:54 pm
  • SF: It’s tough for me to argue against your point, especially since you are in NY. I hope that at some point they decide to remove the gravity that surrounds the whole reason why the Yankees started this in the first place and return the game to a more light-hearted affair.
    ARod leads off with a single.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:54 pm
  • Butt Floss singles up the middle.

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:54 pm

    SF May 10, 2006, 9:54 pm
  • Bracing myself for the Orc to do something outlandish here.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:55 pm
  • …like tear Matsui’s still-beating heart out of his chest?

    airk May 10, 2006, 9:56 pm
  • Hudson, good to know. I understand completely, having followed the Yanks since I was 4 (which was so long ago, let’s just say that free-agency was a new topic). I still want another run or two against that Sox lineup.
    663 double play on a weak grounder by Matsui.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 9:57 pm
  • Nice play by Gonzo.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 9:57 pm

  • Better than I thought, Tavarez. Are you gonna waste that good outing by Tavarez, offense? ARE YOU?!
    (Yes.)

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:01 pm
  • Yeah, Devine, although it’s not nearly so creative. He’s just called “Manny.” My wife laughs at me when I ask him if he’s going to hit a home run or congratulate him for making a good catch.
    It’s a sad life, being a Red Sox fan in Texas. But we make do :-)

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:01 pm
  • (On second thought, I think Tavarez is more Uruk-hai from Isengard than an ordinary Mordor orc.)

  • Barring any more runs scored by the Yankees, who gets to work the ninth? I think Farnsworth could use the time on the mound, just in case we end up needing Rivera fresh for tomorrow.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:09 pm
  • Papelbon, huh? Francona must be feelin’ that comeback (why Holtz? why Harris? you miserable piece of sh!t).

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:09 pm
  • papelbon in. keeping him fresh i suppose

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:10 pm
  • Devine, I assume you went to Yale? My dad taught at UNH for a while…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:10 pm
  • I guess they don’t want Papelbon to get rusty. I suppose.

    Hunter May 10, 2006, 10:10 pm
  • I did, though I try to avoid mentioning the fact directly, Paul. (I fish for the alma mater’s mention instead. :)

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:11 pm
  • I have to question that Papelbon move as well. Why? I suppose to keep it close? Maybe just work him in the eigth to keep him loose?

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:11 pm
  • Unbelievable. The Red Sox are within four runs for the last four innings, and we don’t see Wily Mo Pena, but we do see Keith Holtz, the guy who (I repeat) has good minor-league but mediocre major-league numbers. Freakin incredible.
    Incidentally, I have a friend named Steve Holt, who says he now hates Arrested Development and he’s never even seen an episode. People apparently yell his name at him alll the time.

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • Papelbon is very quick off the mound to cover first on the ground ball to Youk.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • jaret wright and rivera up in the pen

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • Well, the silver lining tonight is the bullpen, not counting Holtz.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:13 pm
  • LOL at Paul’s friend Steve Holt!

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:13 pm
  • ^but not in a mean way^

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:14 pm
  • Papelbon did work that eigth really quickly.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:14 pm
  • Please say it’s not Harris.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:14 pm
  • The most experience I have with Yale is taking field trips to the Peabody Museum…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:15 pm
  • hey the yankees are playing Billy Wagner’s music!

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:15 pm
  • Mo. For some work.

    YF May 10, 2006, 10:16 pm
  • Rivera in. This is the 500th post in this thread.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:16 pm
  • I guess both managers feel their closers can pitch again tomorrow if it’s close. Odd that both teams would pitch these guys in this situation…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:16 pm
  • Willie Harris down.

    YF May 10, 2006, 10:17 pm
  • Darn it, YF got 500. I’m 501.
    Harris grounds out to Cano. One away.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:17 pm
  • I learned to love baseball (again…I remember loving it in my youth watching Nolan Ryan pitch for the Rangers) from a friend at Yale, Paul. He was (is) a big Yankees fan, so I was a nominal one for awhile. Then the Red Sox grabbed me (2003) and I’ve never looked back.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:17 pm
  • WHY THE F*CK WAS HARRIS IN THE F*CKING BALLGAME???!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:17 pm
  • if I’m Tito I hit whoever I feel is most capable of fouling off 15 pitches and tell them to do just that. repeat 3 times.

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:18 pm
  • Why on earth not pinch hit Wily Mo there?
    Jeebus. (That’s a word they taught me at Yale, dontcha know.)

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 10:18 pm
  • No pinch-hitter for Harris, huh? I’m hoping this is Francona giving him every chance to fail, him taking every opportunity, and Francona saying “that’s that.”

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:18 pm
  • Congratulations and thanks YFs and SFs for 500 posts. A record. Until tomorrow.

    YF May 10, 2006, 10:18 pm
  • AGon grounds a comebacker for out 2.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:19 pm
  • Bathroom Break down.

    YF May 10, 2006, 10:19 pm
  • Okay, Youks, let’s see a 20-pitch at bat here. Make yourself You-seful.

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 10:19 pm
  • I grew up as just about the only Sox fan among my friends, then came down here and found a lot more people willing to root for the Sox, just cuz they hate the Yankees so much… It’s funny. I’m 2,000 miles away and have more Sox-friendly friends now than I did a couple hours down the road…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:19 pm
  • What college, Devine?

    Hudson May 10, 2006, 10:20 pm
  • Rivera gets up on Youk quickly, 0-2; fights it off to stay in there.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:20 pm
  • it would be nice if we could make rivera, y’know, break a sweat

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:20 pm
  • I thought Harris proved his inability when he sank to .061 on the season. Did he need another chance?

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:21 pm
  • Youk down. Game Ovah. Series tied 1-1. Rubber match tomorrow night.

    YF May 10, 2006, 10:21 pm
  • Crosby tracks down the final out, final BOS 3, NY 7. Great fun. See you all tomorrow.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:21 pm
  • Well, that sucked.

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:22 pm
  • Sox still own season series run differential! take that!

    airk May 10, 2006, 10:22 pm
  • You really *can’t* win ’em all, huh?
    It’s an old-fashioned rubber match tomorrow. Let’s go, Wakefield!

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:22 pm
  • Mike Mussina: first 6 game winner in the AL. Nice job, Moose.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:23 pm
  • Silliman, Hudson. Y’know the place, do ye?

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:23 pm
  • See ya tomorrow, everyone. I’ll have to go kick my cat for striking out in that key situation…
    (Just kidding. I love my cat. Couldn’t hurt it.)

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:24 pm
  • Well, I watched the whooooooole game (how about that YF?!?).
    Whoever hits the first 2-run HR tomorrow loses.

    Mayday Malone May 10, 2006, 10:25 pm
  • What have we learned today? Well, let’s see Willie Harris in the starting line-up seemed like a dumb idea at the time, and it was. Calling up an AAAA player against a key Yankees game that was winnable isn’t that good. David Ortiz hasn’t forgotten to hit, Mike Myers isn’t the answer, Mussina was good when he had to be, and lucky when he wasn’t. Papelbon and Rivera are amazing.
    Tomorrow, Wakefield tries to defend his “Yankee Killer” status and Chacon seeks to prove the SABR guys wrong that he was due for a decline. Sounds like fun.

    Hunter May 10, 2006, 10:26 pm
  • YES picks Jeter picks his over-the-shoulder grab for play of the game. I have to take issue with that. It’s either ARod’s solo shot or Mussina’s pitching out of the jam in the top of the third.

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:27 pm
  • The hotel room is not on fire tonight.
    GO YANKEES!!!

    Joe May 10, 2006, 10:29 pm
  • COuld this be Moose’s 20 win year and a contract year at that!
    Paul A and Devine, walein and I were born in New Haven. Just to add to the geographic connection game played here tonight. See you guys tomorrow. Safe driving, sleep well, etc.

    NickYF May 10, 2006, 10:29 pm
  • Agreed AG. I’m sayin’ play of the game is the clutch–CLUTCH–A-Rod dinger, esp. given all the michegas after last night. And props to Giambi as well. And Mayday for sticking through it.

    YF May 10, 2006, 10:31 pm
  • It was the Posada one that finished off my hope (for the most part), but the A-Rod homer was certainly clutch.

    Devine May 10, 2006, 10:36 pm
  • I pick the K of Manny with two on… Really nailed the coffin…

    Paul A. May 10, 2006, 10:38 pm
  • Well, Sox fans and Yanks fans, it wasn’t as tight as it could have been, but it certainly sets up a fine rubber tomorrow. By the way, YF, the “resevoir tip” comment was funny. Wish I caught it earlier.
    Wake vs. Shacon tomorrow. Good night, and good luck. (Thanks ERM)

    attackgerbil May 10, 2006, 10:41 pm
  • Like I said back in the innig, Tek leaving those rnners on base will eventually come back to kill us….
    see you all in the marrow for game 4 :D
