    HR
    Double
    2nd with 1 out…
    Let’s see if AJ gets out of this with only limited damage.
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…

  • Another double.
    0-2.
    Groundhog Day.

    0-4.
    Groundhog Day.
    You really just have to laugh.

  • 2-run HR.
    0-6.
    1 out.
    Time to pull him yet Joe? Nah. Just leave his stupid ass in there and let him give up 20 runs. Fuck him.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 7:52 pm
  • Slow roller to AJ. Error.
    Wow. I would say this defies logic but it’s AJ.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 7:53 pm
  • DP!!!!!!! ONLY GAVE UP 6 RUNS!!!! AJ is booed off the mound, on the road…that’s got to be a first?

    krueg August 26, 2011, 7:55 pm
  • Comeback from 1-7 and then 0-6 back-to-back?
    Not.
    AJ loses again. It’s worth it if they pull him from the rotation. I mean, what more could he possibly do to prove how worthless he is???

    krueg August 26, 2011, 7:58 pm
  • 9 straight outs for our mighty offense…
    Over/under on runs asshole gives up this inning?
    I’ll set it at 3 and take the over.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:05 pm
  • 1-2-3 inning. I am speechless.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:09 pm
  • No offense. Again.
    Impressive.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:18 pm
  • K. Such a bad pitch the batter gets to first.
    He can’t even strikeout a guy correctly.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:26 pm
  • Walk.
    Another wild pitch…
    1st and 3rd…1 out…
    It begins anew…
    Groundhog Day.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:30 pm
  • 0-7.
    Jeter bobbles the DP grounder…AJ’s suckitude is not communicable evidently.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:31 pm
  • K!!!! HE ONLY GAVE UP 1 RUN!!!! That is a HUGE improvement.
    How sad is that. Only 1 run on ZERO HITS…

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:35 pm
  • Hip Hip HR.
    1-7.
    No shutout. Sweet.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:39 pm
  • Pathetic.
    2 hits in 5…but really 1. The other should have been an error.
    What a juggernaut.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:42 pm
  • Another double…
    But Vlad gets gunned at the plate…
    3rd and 1 out now…
    Run imminent.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:49 pm
  • 2 outs.
    No run.
    Wait for it…

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:50 pm
  • 2 out walk.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:54 pm
  • Another wild pitch…
    2nd and 3rd…

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:55 pm
  • Triple this time.
    1-9.
    Groundhog Day.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:57 pm
  • I think I’m about done with this game.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:58 pm
  • It is incredible that they still run him out there every 5 days. I just cannot understand how this guys salary means we have to sacrifice every single game the guy starts.
    It just makes no sense at all.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 8:59 pm
  • Just think, K.
    AJ may have pissed you off (and you are right to be pissed), but he managed to remover the sting from seeing Bad Wake lose yet another one on his time warp journey to 200Ws.
    Doesn’t that make you feel a little better?
    ……..(runs)…………

    dabize August 26, 2011, 9:55 pm
  • No. Because I don’t care about the Red Sox.

    krueg August 26, 2011, 10:08 pm
  • Worst. Pitcher. In. The. History. Of. The. Game.
    No, that’s not hyperbole.

    IronHorse (YF) August 26, 2011, 11:43 pm
  • Sure isn’t IH.
    It amazes me that a team, the Yankees, that preaches winning Championships as the only goal continues to allow this guy to cost the team wins. We’re in a dogfight for the AL East and every 5 days we are guaranteed a loss.
    I cannot fathom this. Money be damned. He has to go. Period.

    krueg August 27, 2011, 4:50 pm
  • Any chance of a thread for theupcoming 2nd game of the Sox-A’s
    Dh?
    I’ve got a title
    “Soggy Seconds”

    dabize August 27, 2011, 5:41 pm
  • Are these guys even interested in playing the second game?
    I heard that there was a window until around 8PM before all hell breaks loose.
    So why- Ells!
    Last out of this stupid game.
    Get it done

    dabize August 27, 2011, 5:59 pm
  • Finally!
    6:09

    dabize August 27, 2011, 6:09 pm
  • Second game to start at 6:50
    WHY? What part of THIS don’t they understand?

  • Welp, they made it through the top of the 5th with the Sox in the lead…this game is official (might even go the full 9!)…although the A’s could still tie or take the lead in the top half of an inning before a delay to draw this thing out.

    Devine August 27, 2011, 9:46 pm
  • Saved by precip banding…
    Its official now……but they still have to win it.
    3 runs doesn’t seem like much after that………event a couple of days ago in NY.

    dabize August 27, 2011, 9:48 pm
  • The rain delay 3 outs before it was official seems a bit silly, but I didn’t see the weather at the time, so maybe it was *that* bad, but unless there was lightning, I wonder why they didn’t just push through it. Still, they eventually gave up no runs, so it’s probably for the best.

    Devine August 27, 2011, 9:57 pm
  • It was raining very heavily
    The field looks terrible now – lots of puddles and they’re slipping all over the place

    dabize August 27, 2011, 10:12 pm
  • I am liking Ace.
    Does everything the long man/mopup man does…..except suck

    dabize August 27, 2011, 10:17 pm
  • Playing in this kind of weather is always shaky. How much would it suck to see a key player go down because of a stupid accident by trying to push through this weather, one month before the post season?

  • http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/yankees/post/_/id/22534/joe-plans-to-cut-rotation-to-5-after-boston
    Since there is no new thread up for anything, I take the liberty of offering my quick comment of these prospective NYY/BOS matchups:
    CC vs Lackey Wash – CC has been terrible (for CC) against the RS, but Lackey terrible? John has been trying to stop being Lackey-terrible, but will it work against the 3 Granny Lineup?
    Hughes vs Beckett Some kind of RS advantage, depending on whether it is Good Hughes or Bad Hughes
    AJ vs Miller or Lester Massive RS advantage either way. I’m sure that YFs will concur. Is Gerardi waving the white flag on the division?

    dabize August 28, 2011, 12:50 pm
  • Sox sweep. With ease.

    krueg August 28, 2011, 12:57 pm
  • Dunno about that, K, but CC and JL have eerily similar results for August – CC:34 IP, 20 ER, JL: 32 IP, 19 ER.
    Shocking to me, I admit.
    I always worry about Beckett, but he’s been OK mostly.
    As for AJ – I really don’t know what the Y’s are thinking – hasn’t he made it plain enough yet that he intends to suck? Why not Noesi?
    It would be like the RS VOLUNTARILY starting Wake against the Ys

    dabize August 28, 2011, 1:49 pm
  • Colon winning the PC war so far: 19 vs 12 after 1

    dabize August 28, 2011, 1:51 pm
  • Meanwhile, TB is beating on the Jays like a case of bird flu
    5-0 in the 3rd.

    dabize August 28, 2011, 1:55 pm
  • I feel like my 5 year old nephew, lefty, could throw 5 scoreless innings against us.
    We are falling apart. Just utterly pathetic.

    krueg August 28, 2011, 1:55 pm
  • It’s going to be a bloodbath this week.
    The CC game might be close, like 6-4 Sox.
    Hughes game? 10-0 Sox
    AJ game? 24-3 Sox.
    Sweep.
    Season over.
    Hell, we’ll be at least 3 games behind after we lose 3 of 4 to the lowly O’s, if not get swept. Then the Sox series puts us 5 games out.
    Sweep in the first round in Texas.
    Fuck this team.

    krueg August 28, 2011, 1:57 pm
  • But they’re patient
    Britton will not last long today if he can’t throw more strikes

    dabize August 28, 2011, 1:58 pm
  • A bit OTT, even for a reverse jinx rant, no?
    Might get Good Hughes.
    RS don’t seem to get to him as much as with CC.
    They still have time to trot out Noesi instead of AJ,
    Noesi has been relatively good against the Sox, seems to me.
    We are lucking out missing Nova

    dabize August 28, 2011, 2:14 pm
  • See?
    The O’s really don’t want to win.
    They give you Gregg

    dabize August 28, 2011, 4:05 pm
  • Lost 4 of 5 to the mighty O’s and A’s!!!!
    Shutout again!!!!
    FAILING WEEKLY!!!
    GO YANKEES!!!!
    Good thing I didn’t watch the game, nor will I watch tonight.
    FUCK THIS TEAM. I cannot stress this enough. Fuck them.

    krueg August 28, 2011, 4:06 pm
  • Tonights game should be a gift. Brian Matusz with an ERA approaching 9.

    Michael Myett August 28, 2011, 8:05 pm
  • I think that krueg is an exponent of the Grand Guignol school of sports fandom theatre

    dabize August 28, 2011, 8:43 pm
  • Can’t count on the O’s for anything
    Anything Nova can do badly, Matusz can do worse
    5-3

    dabize August 28, 2011, 9:19 pm
  • I have been puking up my emotional, immature stupidity on here for years. It’s like therapy.
    I looked up Grand Guignol. Are you actually Dennis Miller ‘bize???
