  • Jeez, fatalism much? The Yankees won the first game.

    AndrewYF June 21, 2009, 5:10 pm
  • CC out in the 2nd…some kind of injury. Game is over. Season is over.

    krueg June 21, 2009, 5:45 pm
  • what happened to cc?

    rootbeerfloat June 21, 2009, 5:45 pm
  • About to lose yet another series…awesome. That and our only good pitcher…sweet. Just kill me now.

    krueg June 21, 2009, 5:47 pm
  • Yeah what happened to CC? Does it seem like a long-term problem? The Yanks are in trouble if Sabathia is out for anything more than a month.

    Atheose June 21, 2009, 6:06 pm
  • Tightness in the bicep, day-to-day.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 6:18 pm
  • Sabathia: tightness in his left bicep. That’s an unusual injury.

    Atheose June 21, 2009, 6:18 pm
  • Long at bat by Melky ends with a pop-up.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 6:24 pm
  • Gardner legs out a 2-hopper to Hanley for an infield single.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 6:26 pm
  • Great running grab by Melky.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 6:31 pm
  • No tests are schedule for CC, which seems to confirm that the Yankees are just taking it very, very easy with CC. Smart thing to do. And they don’t even necessarily sacrifice the game, as the Yankees’ very good (and very unheralded) starting pitching depth allows them to easily construct a game out of their bullpen.

  • Although I have no idea why Brett Tomko is pitching in a 2-run game. I guess they want to save Aceves for Tuesday.

    AndrewYF June 21, 2009, 6:42 pm
  • Tomko comes on and promptly gives up a two run shot to Hanley. Blah.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 6:48 pm
  • Hating the result, but man what a beautiful swing.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 6:49 pm
  • Add Tomko to the long, distinguished group of losers on this team…
    Another series lost as this pathetic team falls deeper into the abyss of mediocrity at best..

    krueg June 21, 2009, 7:03 pm
  • Just need to go 1-6 for the rest of the trip to make my prediction on 2 wins…shouldn’t be a problem for this group.

    krueg June 21, 2009, 7:08 pm
  • it is embarrassing to watch this putrid team play. just awful.

    krueg June 21, 2009, 7:08 pm
  • 1-2-3 inning again…this team has no heart, no balls, no pride, no anything. Just a f-cking laughing stock of over-hyped losers and mercenaries.

    krueg June 21, 2009, 7:10 pm
  • every other team in our division won…should be back in 4th place where we belong soon enough. losers.

    krueg June 21, 2009, 7:11 pm
  • Coke in…let’s see how many runs he can give up??? not that it matters, it’s already over. Not like any of our hitters are actually going to come through anyways…

  • Was listening to Francesa interview Girardi on Friday on WFAN. He put Joe through an absolute GRILLING. Things I learned:
    Francesa seems to believe that there are massive clubhouse issues. Burnett hates Posada. Posada hates Girardi. Veterans in general dislike Girardi. Girardi pooh-poohed this, was pretty convincing. Except for the Burnett/Posada thing. He started off wishy-washy, like he didn’t want to acknowledge this issue publicly, then he found his legs and said it wasn’t an issue. Curious – any of you YFs hear about a Burnett/Posada feud? I live in NYC and hadn’t heard about one, it came as a surprise to me.

    SF June 21, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Can more things go wrong for the Yanks?

    Lar June 21, 2009, 7:32 pm
  • Comedy of f-cking errors…

    krueg June 21, 2009, 7:32 pm
  • And of course, they might score 2 in the 9th before losing again, making it all the frustrating..

    Lar June 21, 2009, 7:33 pm
  • What? You mean the Yankees aren’t a closely formed bunch of fun-loving pranksters?
    I remember hearing that Burnett had an issue with catchers in Toronto, though I’d have to do some research to find out more info.

    Atheose June 21, 2009, 7:33 pm
  • > YFs hear about a Burnett/Posada feud?
    No, I had not heard specifically about AJ and Jorge having something direct, but I had heard rumors that there was “uncomfortable-ness” (yes, I know it’s not a word) in general between the starters and Jorge.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 7:34 pm
  • I don’t know about a feud, but in the Daily News, I think Burnett had said at some point that he was more comfortable with Cervelli.
    And we know about Moose, so go figure.

    Lar June 21, 2009, 7:40 pm
  • Down three runs, so let’s have a technicality argument over a lineup card issue and completely drag the game into the region of awful. But it looks like Joe got his point across about the illegal player. I think. Jeter pops out to center as play gets underway after a 2-hour legal battle.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 7:48 pm
  • Can more things go wrong for the Yanks?
    Yes. PLEASE yes.

    SF June 21, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Marlins announcers=annoying.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • > PLEASE
    Hey, you already got your dad’s day present. No need to be greedy!

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:06 pm
  • Posada hits a two-out single to bring up Melky.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:06 pm
  • Now Melky with ground ball up the middle just past a diving Uggla to bring Gardner as the tying run to the plate in the form of Brett Gardner. Stomach dunt feel gud right now.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:09 pm
  • Gardner triples to the right-center corner to make it 6-5.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:10 pm
  • Damon to pinch with Gardner on third with two away.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:10 pm
  • Damon takes a ball, then another pitch inside to make it 2-0. Damon rips a hard shot foul up first, turning too quickly on a fastball.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • The 2-1 is a slider way outside, way high. 3-1: Damon takes high. First and third, Jeter to the plate. Pena to run for Damon.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • Jeter hits the first pitch sharply to Hanley, who throws to Uggla for the force to end the game.
    Andrew, I’m really pissed at you right now. It is your fault.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:15 pm
  • Ooops.. I meant to say Lar. Whatever. PISSED.

    attackgerbil June 21, 2009, 8:15 pm
  • What do I win for my prediction?

    Lar June 21, 2009, 8:15 pm
  • > What do I win for my prediction?
    Prepping a Lar-shaped voodoo doll to stick with needles for your soothiness.
