Yeah, it's late. So sue us. We were busy getting back on our testosterone cycle, and we forgot about the gamer. Comment about tonight's action here.

Yanks haven’t had a lead for a long time, apparently since Saturday. pretty crappy.
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 7:27 pm
What did Scott Boras know and when did he know it?!
SF May 7, 2009 at 7:28 pm
Does this question have to do with Lugo’s triple? Yeah, someone needs to explain that!
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 7:30 pm
Who does #2 work for?
SF May 7, 2009 at 7:31 pm
Scott’s a really smart guy. He probably knew before the players did ;)
YanksFanSince76 May 7, 2009 at 7:31 pm
plenty of good seats still available yf’s!
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 7:32 pm
I’m very confused by the dueling threads!
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 7:32 pm
My fantasy is that Manny was taking sex drugs, announces he is gay, marries his Dominican manservant Pepe, and California votes to repeal the ban on gay marriage in return for baseball unsuspending Ramirez. Baseball’s retarded drug policy is somehow re-engineered into a vessel for social justice.
Or, maybe he just did steroids.
SF May 7, 2009 at 7:33 pm
tex earning his keep.
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 7:35 pm
“marries his Dominican manservant Pepe”
Seems like this marriage would be deeply flawed from the beginning, what with the whole imbalance in power thing.
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 7:36 pm
Scott Boras was probably the one feeding him the drug in his sleep!
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 7:39 pm
ah..it would seem peace and civility has returned!
Ortiz scrathed from the lineup due to a stiff neck…must have been all those posts flying today on Manny that did it.
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 7:47 pm
Fuck you and everything that you stand for!
Just kidding of course. Somebody needs to tell Eckersley that his tie is two inches too short.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 7:52 pm
I got home and read the other thread…really couldnt start to figure out where to start. Everytime I got ready to post someone else did and started a vicious cycle all over again.
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 7:57 pm
I love Mike Lowell so very much.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 7:59 pm
That homer by Longoria looked like a can of corn, this stadium is an easy lay to right.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:03 pm
Yanks down 4-0. I give up on the season.
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 8:04 pm
audible “fire joe” chants coming from the bleachers in YS. it’s good to see YF’s coming together to unite under one unified theme.
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 8:04 pm
Pettitte clearly NOT on HGH tonight.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:04 pm
it’s good to see YF’s coming together to unite under one unified theme.
The rich ones already had: not showing up.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:05 pm
sox game might finish up in just 2 hours at this pace.
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 8:05 pm
The Sox’ lineup tonight has a serious early 1980s feel to it.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:07 pm
Are the Sox using there split squad lineup tonight?
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:07 pm
(oh, and that’s definitively NOT a good thing, for you youngsters)
Three comments by Rod, all three focused on the Yankees, their players and their fans. Don’t you have a game to watch? It’s good to be a Sox fan right now, but remember everything is cyclical.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 8:07 pm
uhg. wakes gonna need to induce some swing and misses as he’s gotten himself into a jam.
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 8:09 pm
Since I’ve never been a fan of Girardi, I’m all for this. Hey, why not?
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 8:09 pm
Passed ball scores a run. Those two cheap singles make me cringe.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:10 pm
Wake seems to be having a mini meltdown here.
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:10 pm
john- to be honest, it’s a lot more fun watching your team right now.
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 8:11 pm
I don’t think anyone should be fired, but if I were a betting man I’d say Eiland or Long go 1st before anyone else. Primarily Eiland.
The Yankees are losing 4-0, they have been God awful as of late and somehow Singleton, Cone and Kay think we want to watch them eat the “Official Ice Cream of the New York Yankees.” It keeps getting better.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 8:12 pm
1983 Opening Day lineup
26 Wade Boggs 3B
24 Dwight Evans RF
14 Jim Rice LF
20 Tony Armas CF
8 Carl Yastrzemski DH
11 Dave Stapleton 1B
10 Rich Gedman C
18 Glenn Hoffman SS
12 Julio Valdez 2B
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:13 pm
Ah, Timpical Wake is back. One blowout inning and the Sox are in the hole.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:13 pm
This is starting to look like one of those “OMG re-trade for Mirabelli!” games.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:13 pm
“This is starting to look like one of those “OMG re-trade for Mirabelli!” games.”
Masterson should do the trick. If only Mirabelli were on a team.
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 8:15 pm
Well you’re not a true Yankees fan if you eat anything else, John.
Double play gets us out of too much trouble.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:15 pm
I rest my case. One great player, one underrated player, a slugger on the downslope, a whiff machine, a Hall of Famer long since better days, a defensive scrub, an up-and-coming decent catcher, and two guys who probably would have been better off working at Jiffy Lube.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:15 pm
the “Official Ice Cream of the New York Yankees.” It keeps getting better
It probably costs $139.99 a gallon.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:17 pm
I have a feeling that JD Drew is going to have a massive bullseye on him before too long.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:19 pm
this sounds exactly like the current Yanks line-up but better.
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 8:19 pm
The Red Sox are 17-11, which is a really good record. Why does it feel like they haven’t even come close to fulfilling their potential? Am I alone on this? The winning streak was tremendous, but even then Dice-K hasn’t pitched much, Papi and Drew have been hideous, and the starters have really been mostly erratic.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:22 pm
Who is the up-and-coming decent catcher, Nick?
Jose Molina Jr.? Definitely it’s a Molina. His arrival date might be 2024.
Nick-YF May 7, 2009 at 8:25 pm
I just called the supermarket and believe it or not the ice cream is not all that expensive, provided you don’t mind eating around the outside. The middle of the container is what will get you, $1200 for the portion closest to the center. Apparently though the lady at the supermarket said they have plenty of middles left and no outsides at all.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 8:26 pm
Drew is hideous, SF? He’s OPS’ing .846, which is below his potential but still pretty good.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:29 pm
Baldelli diving catch! Yeah!
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:30 pm
Sox have seemed off since the start of the season..”Ace” can’t seem to pitch right…up and coming “Ace” seems off…Dice hurt…Wake being the saviour a few times.
After my criticism of Drew last year I will hold off. I got skewered on here like a fat man in a cannibal camp.
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:32 pm
Julio fucking Lugo, leading off the inning with another hit.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:33 pm
Jason Bay is God. There’s no other explanation for this awesomeness.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:37 pm
Bay is the man..comes through again for us.
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:38 pm
Wait, Lugo STARTED A RALLY!?! Pigs can fly! We sent a man to the moon!!!!
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:38 pm
Roco with the bases juiced…
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:39 pm
SF, that’s the second time today too!
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:41 pm
4-2 Sox, welcome back Rocco! Teach that pitcher to respect you!
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:43 pm
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:43 pm
One must feel tremendous shame giving up hits to Molina.
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:43 pm
SF May 7, 2009 at 8:44 pm
Hey look the Yankees have an offense
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:47 pm
Don’t you start too Ath.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 8:48 pm
Bailey lines a double off of that guy who eats hotdogs for a living. 6-2 Sox.
Meanwhile, Teixeira strikes out with a RISP.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:49 pm
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 8:49 pm
Hey John, not being a dick, just pointing out that they’re scoring some runs. Their offense has been atrocious this last week. No venom in my comments.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:50 pm
now there’s a firstbaseman that can hit with RISP. (not a jab a yf’s john)
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 8:50 pm
Holy shit hotdog pitcher didn’t cover first base, so the 2nd baseman had to slide into first to try to beat the runner. That was humourous.
Another hit and it’s 8-2. Jesus these seven runs happened quickly.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:51 pm
Hotdog pitcher gives up three hits on the first four pitches he threw.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 8:52 pm
Lugo with his third hit of the game. Bases reloaded with no outs for the MVP.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:54 pm
Told my 7-year old about Manny when I picked him up from school today. I couldn’t get it out without my voice breaking up. I’m really, really disappointed in that news.
And 10 straight to reach base without an out isn’t making me feel much better about it.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 8:54 pm
Third time bases loaded in the inning.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 8:55 pm
Jesus. Even John Wasdin was never this bad.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 8:56 pm
This inning is hilarious and awesome and has made my day.
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 8:56 pm
This is getting damn-near ugly:
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 8:57 pm
Gas House Gorrilla’s at bat
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 8:58 pm
Kobayashi would even be bad in the Yankees pen. (Also not a jab at YFs.)
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 8:59 pm
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:00 pm
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 9:01 pm
Still nobody out.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:02 pm
Jason Bay with a WWE esque finishing move
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 9:03 pm
I’m pretty sure we have at least tied the modern-day record for most runs scored without an out.
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 9:05 pm
I took a piss and came back to see Jason Bay homered. He’s God I’m tellin ya.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 9:05 pm
Tie game, but looks as if Jose Molina is hurt. The Yankees seem to be more jinxed than the pre-2004 Red Sox. (Not a jab at SF’s by any means :) )
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:06 pm
Most runs in an inning: 17 by the Red Sox against the Tigers in 1953. We’re 5 runs short.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 9:07 pm
Home run = rally killer
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:07 pm
Right, but we scored all 12 of these before anyone got out. Someone in the SoSH thread said the record for runs scored before a single out was 13, set in 1883, so I figure we have to at least have tied the modern record.
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 9:08 pm
Hey John, it wasn’t a jinx or a curse. It was bad ownership. I’d say it’s a common trait.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:09 pm
Yanks have tied the game
Rob SF May 7, 2009 at 9:10 pm
Cleveland Plain Dealer headline suggestion:
“A dozen? D’oh! Nuts”
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:11 pm
Go Yanks. I’m on your side right now.
IBM, relax I was simply poking back at Rod and Ath…scroll up. I know it wasn’t a jinx ugggh. Please pick a side Sox fans, are we the cocky instigaters or are we sensitive and defensive? You can’t be both.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:12 pm
Joe C says 12 runs before an out recorded ties a ML record from 1953.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:12 pm
Pettitte looking sharp, 5-4 Rays. Zobrist hits a legit new stadium HR.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:13 pm
John I know.
I’m still kind of cranky about the Manny stuff.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:13 pm
Jason Bay: hitting homers, throwing out runners, and striding the world like a colossus.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 9:15 pm
So yeah, after today, anyone want to take the Bay/Manny trade back? Anyone? Bueller?
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 9:16 pm
Nice inning by MDC.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:16 pm
I figured IBM, you are usually one of the cool ones. It could be worse you could be a Yankee fan right now…each game feels like a root canal where the dentist takes a lunch break mid-way through the procedure.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:16 pm
Fuck Manny. It’s bad enough he quit on us. Now we find out he’s probably a cheater. Screw him.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:17 pm
Cervelli throws down the second on a stolen base and throws the ball directly into the ground. Cano promptly makes a sweet play, but not in time…1st and 3rd, 2 outs. Pettitte has thrown 115 pitches.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:18 pm
Don’t sweat it, John. I still think you’ll be fine. It starts with the pen. And firing Girardi.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:18 pm
Cervelli … ouch.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:19 pm
Oh I have faith, I am just worried that I will be bald and have an ulcer by the time they right the ship. I still stand by my belief that this is a very good team. The bullpen can improve, but injuries to Bruney and Marte were big. Like them or not those were your set up men, your 8th inning guys…instead we now have Coke and Albaladejo. Time will tell, but for my own well being I need a decent streak here before I go insane!
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:21 pm
John: you guys get A-Rod back tomorrow, at least. That should help the offense.
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 9:21 pm
Cervelli batting a sweet .170 in AA with an OBP of .260. He makes Varitek look like Wade Boggs. It just keeps getting better.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:23 pm
Yes, as difficult as it is to admit I am psyched to get him back. Hopefully that helps Tex out a little and kick starts the offense. Nady, Posada, Molina, A-Rod…plus the BP losses, plus Wang, this team has not had an easy time thus far.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:25 pm
Please pick a side Sox fans, are we the cocky instigaters or are we sensitive and defensive? You can’t be both
Now this is simply not true.
SF May 7, 2009 at 9:28 pm
At least one Red Sox Constant holds today: Javy Lopez Sucks.
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 9:31 pm
You guys need to relax about Manny. Its not like he tested positive for steriods. His penis just doesn’t work.
WAY...SF May 7, 2009 at 9:32 pm
ARod coming back solves a ton of problems. I’m legitimately scared of what the Yanks can do when he’s in their lineup.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 9:34 pm
Molina strained quad…Cashman on the phone now with Mirabelli and Flaherty.
John - YF May 7, 2009 at 9:34 pm
Are you serious John? Holy shit.
Mirabelli is busy–he’s a real estate agent now. Not joking.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 9:43 pm
dont forget kevin cash
WAY...SF May 7, 2009 at 9:45 pm
Thirteen runs of thirteen hits. I’m happy about that.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 9:45 pm
Last nine Sox go down in order? WTF?
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:52 pm
Bob Melvin reportedly about to be Whacked.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 9:54 pm
Drew Peterson indicted, in custody today.

Wow, Damon doing everything tonight.

Plesac’s tie is brutal.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 10:14 pm
Wake’s ERA is 2.92.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 10:15 pm
Notice Manny didn’t apologize to the Boston fans. Guess that means this is a new thing.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 10:16 pm
Wow, back-to-back homers by Crawford and Longoria. Off Mo.
Atheose May 7, 2009 at 10:24 pm
Six homers. 8 total. Jesus.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 10:25 pm
That RF porch is gonna be the death of someone.
Robertson in for Mo.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 10:26 pm
This serves me right for having Yankees on my fantasy team – Mo and Tex sucked horribly today.
Micah-SF May 7, 2009 at 10:26 pm
after the crawford HR suzyn waldman on the radio call says, “sometimes mo throws too perfect a strike”. then after the longoria HR she says, “there’s that too perfect strike again”.
not even sure what that means.
sf rod May 7, 2009 at 10:28 pm
Don’t even try to figure her out. Suzyn’s an idiot. Too many years inhaling Sterling’s CO2.
First time since 1998 Mo gives up 2 homers in an innings; first time in career he gives up consecutive homers.
He gets booed as he leaves the field.
Seriously. Booing Mo?
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 10:32 pm
The Yankees are a fucking joke…period. Even Mo sucks now. May 7, 2008 and the baseball season is over for the Yankees. Fire Cashman, fire GIrardi, get rid of any players possible…start over. This team is an embarrassment to the pinstripes.
krueg May 7, 2009 at 10:40 pm
Wow, you are pissed.
I'mBillMcNeal May 7, 2009 at 10:53 pm
Not quite 1 run losses, but still, you get my frustration.
Bah, this is why the “high volatility pitching” is better than “consistently just a little worse pitching”!
But how can you bitch about Mo?
Lar May 7, 2009 at 11:13 pm
IBM, you haven’t ventured to the yanks thread often, I take it.. this has been krueg all year!
I don’t know. Half of it is injuries, but at some point, the team just sucks, either way. Bah.
Lar May 7, 2009 at 11:15 pm
That said, the delusional part of me thinks it’s still early.
Behind Blue Jays and the Sox? We just have to pass one of them. Seattle, Texas, Detriot, KC won’t hold their record all year long!
Okay, where’s my drink?
Lar May 7, 2009 at 11:17 pm
Yeah…my white hot anger literally made me lose an entire year.
krueg May 7, 2009 at 11:27 pm
I hope that I am just over-reacting…I really do. But every single sorry-ass player on this team has contributed to this. They all suck. As much as I want to believe ARod is going to come in on a white horse, I think we both know that is not going to happen. All our free agent gazillionaires have done exactly what the nay-sayers said…they all have been terrible. Fucking terrible.
