Going Down To The Crossroads: Yanks-Braves Gamer I

Chien Ming Wang looks to give the Yankees a reason to save him if they please while Tommy Hanson throws for the Braves. Wang has pitched against the Braves before, and did quite well, but I do believe I’m sinking. Prove me wrong, Wanger.

  • 1-2-3 for the mighty yankees…surprise, surprise.
    Now, let’s see how many Wang gives up in the bottom on the 1st…3? 4?

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • 1-2-3 for wang??? it won’t last…
    Choke-rod leads off…automatic out.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:23 pm
  • predictable weak pop fly for choke-rod…great job as-shole.
    sidebar:
    I have the stupid braves feed for some reason, the Yankees feed is blacked out here in Memphis. No idea why??? 5 hours from hot-lanta…anyways, the idiot announcers said that choke-rod’s pop out would have been a HR in the Stadium. Not even close. F-cking losers…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:25 pm
  • I know what the Yankees are the best in baseball at…not scoring any runs when the bases are loaded. Granted it was Wang at bat but still…we are pathetic with RISP.
    Wang made it to the 2nd…let’s see if he can get through it.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:42 pm
  • Meltdown…jesus christ. Hanging his pitches now…1st and 2nd, 1 out. Needs a DP.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • Yanks not looking good this inning..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:45 pm
  • 3-0 to the next douche…about to walk the bases loaded.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:45 pm
  • By Yanks I mean Wang..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:46 pm
  • HE THREW A STRIKE!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!!

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:46 pm
  • Flush-er actually caught the ball…1st and 3rd, 2 outs. Not out of the woods yet.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:47 pm
  • It’s always someone Lar…never play a complete game. Thus, the losing.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:47 pm
  • Wang almost runs through Tex and blows it…3 outs. SCIENCE BE PRAISED!!!! Got through 2 innings without a run…minor miracle. Next inning…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:48 pm
  • That was a good Cano play though. Here’s DJ.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Leadoff double for the Captain…nice.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • At least now Flush-er can’t hit into a DP…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • That ball rolled all the way to the wall.. I thought it was an easy triple, but he takes the safe route and stay at second..
    And Swisher tries to bunt him over.. what the hey?

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • Wang’s ERA is down to 11.44! Yay!

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • Jeter now with more doubles than Babe Ruth.
    Swisher with a weak comebacker. Okay, fine, maybe he should’ve bunted, hahaha..
    Here’s Teixiera.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • Flusher cannot even get Jeter to 3rd…what a worthless piece of sh-t he is. Seriously. Horrible defensively. Can’t hit. Total loser.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • Walk Tex to get to choke-rod the automatic out…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • Teixiera kind of cooling down the last few games, coinciding with going away. Hrmmm..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:56 pm
  • They would be stupid to give him anything to hit when you basically have a pitcher hitting cleanup…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:56 pm
  • DP is on…please just strike out choke-rod so we still have a chance to score. Of course, we are the kings of men left on base so wasting a leadoff double is pretty much par for the course with this sorry bunch.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:57 pm
  • 3-0 pitch to Teixiera not even close, and walks on 4 pitches. Here’s ARod, ready to hit a double play.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:57 pm
  • It’s a good point by Kay, that Teixiera’s numbers haven’t been good recently because ARod’s been awful lately. Makes sense.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:58 pm
  • Quickly 0-2 to choke-rod…two fastballs right down the middle that he can’t put in play. He is f-cking terrible.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:58 pm
  • Ya, that was a meatball pitch. Should’ve killed the ball..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:58 pm
  • Wish I had our broadcast…these Braves announcers suck.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 7:58 pm
  • ARod strikes out on the double steal. He had some very very hittable pitches and does nothing with them. Here’s Cano.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 7:59 pm
  • Cano pops up and that means the Yanks did nothing with a leadoff double, and a one-out walk. Bah.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • choke-rod K’s per usual. What a complete joke he is…completely worthless. Runners were going so 2nd and 3rd now with 2 outs. Can Cano get a clutch hit???
    Didn’t even finish typing before Cano weakly pops out. THIS TEAM F-CKING SUCKS!!! From top to bottom, left to right, back to front this team is a joke. No offense, no defense, no pitching…feeble to the core.
    F-ck them.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • You’re surprised Lar??? We haven’t gotten a hit with RISP in like a month it seems…we are horrible.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:01 pm
  • Here’s Wang. Going right after the pitcher, which is a good move.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:03 pm
  • Recipe for a championship:
    3 innings
    5 men LOB
    0 runs
    Not. Losers.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:03 pm
  • I don’t know if I’m surprised, but I’m still going to bitch about it! ;P
    Wang strikes out the pitcher on 3. Good start..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:03 pm
  • Escobar with a 2 out, 0-2 hit.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • choke-rod can’t make the play at 3rd…total liability.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • Posada threw another away..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:09 pm
  • McCann drove a really low pitch in for a double. That was not an awful pitch, but McCann was good enough..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • Jorge chucks the throw into CF…because he is terrible, lets the runner get to 3rd. Wang is now rattled, because HE sucks and walks chipper and then a double for mccann. 0-1.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • 3-0 as Anderson doubles.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:14 pm
  • game. set. match. 0-3
    THE YANKEES SUCK…THHHHHHHHEEEEEEEE YANKEES SUCK!!!
    FIRE GIRARDI NOW! Great job you bunch of sorry-f-cking losers! I’m out. THis game is over. Not sure why I’m even watching anymore…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:14 pm
  • 1-2-3 to Wang, err.. too bad he’s still down 3-0.
    His ERA is still down for the day.. haha..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:35 pm
  • Yanks pretty much doing everything except for scoring.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:36 pm
  • 8 men LOB through 4…this team is a joke. Bases loaded for Flusher and he weakly grounds out on the first f-cking pitch.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:37 pm
  • Choke-rod flys out NOT EVEN TO THE WARNING TRACK…not even WTP. This guy needs to go. I’m sorry, f-ck him. You are a joke choke-rod. Just kill yourself and do us all a favor…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • It defies logic how pathetic this team is…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • They err.. did not leave the bases loaded that time. That’s the best thing I could say about that one..

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • Wang works around a bloop single.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:51 pm
  • Wang out after only 62 pitches. But I guess they need runs.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 8:57 pm
  • I guess Wang is finished…only 3 runs in 5 innings! How pathetic can we be? 5 IP and only 3 runs is a good outing???
    god-OUT-za pinch hitting for Wang…automatic out. Maybe Gardner can steal 2nd, 3rd and home so we don’t get shutout again.
    We were going to drive out to hot-lanta for a game or two…SO GLAD WE DIDN’T WASTE OUT MONEY ON THESE LOSERS!!!

    krueg June 23, 2009, 8:58 pm
  • Braves announcers talking about god-OUT-za being a black belt in judo…brilliant redneck announcer says:
    “…I still wouldn’t walk the streets of NY.”
    Ignorant as-hole.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • god-OUT-za walks…awesome, big-time speed on the bags!!! Not.
    Jeter up to ground into the DP…he can’t wait.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:01 pm
  • Alright…10 men LOB or 11??? Depends on if Jeter walks…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:04 pm
  • JETER GROUNDS INTO THE DP!!!! YES!!!! EXCELLENT!!!! WE ARE SO AWESOME!!! 10 MEN LOB THROUGH 6!!!!
    Pack it in. This season is OVER.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:06 pm
  • p.s.
    I called a 2-7 record on this road trip…1-4 so far so I’m close.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:06 pm
  • Yankee bats:
    Jeter- ok, past his prime
    johnny- sucks, old, worthless
    Flush-er- completely worthless
    Tex- pretty good
    choke-rod- get rid of him, black hole in the lineup
    cano-pretty good
    posada- old, slow, fragile, terrible
    melky- nice bench player
    gardner- sweet AAA player
    nady- average in every way
    =
    no playoffs, over paid, over hyped bunch of pathetic losers

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:19 pm
  • choke-rod getting his hitless streak going again!!! ATTA BOY CHOKE-ROD!!! YOU ARE DA MAN!!! Maybe you should hit the bars on Peachtree tonight??? Seems like going out and getting hammered is about all you are good at…that and shooting PED’s in your ass of course.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:20 pm
  • 4TH PLACE HERE WE COME BABY!!!! GREAT JOB CASHMAN!!! WAY TO PUT TOGETHER SUCH AN AWESOME TEAM!!! Oh, and how can I forget about out HIGHLY TALENTED MANAGER JOE GIRARDI!!!! TWO STRAIGHT SEASONS MISSING THE PLAYOFFS!!! TAKE A BOW LOSERS!!!

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • Hughes just blowing people away…would have been nice if he pitched this way when he was starting. Of course, we are the Yankees and everything that can be f-cked up, is.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:26 pm
  • This is beyond comprehension. I mean, does this team have any balls at all? Do they even care? Sure doesn’t look like it. Another loss. Another shutout. I feel sick watching this team. Something needs to give and soon. The Boss would have thrown Girardi out on his worthless ass after the 2nd Boston series. I am embarrassed to be a f-cking YF right now…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • Yanks still down 3-0. Boy is the offense out of sync. Though they get on base.. just err.. can’t score them.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 9:41 pm
  • 0-4

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • And McCann drives another run in.

    Lar June 23, 2009, 9:44 pm
  • Uh, krueg, you are aware that the Yankees will still be tied for the wild card if they lose this game and if Toronto wins? I don’t think your season is over, not by a longshot.

  • Oh, my answer is Z obviously…

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:52 pm
  • Shutout again. Lost again.
    Great job boys…way to represent the uniform you bunch of sorry-ass, pathetic, choke-job pieces of sh-t.
    Bright side? Wang wasn’t terrible. Hughes looked good.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:57 pm
  • So glad I don’t get the postgame show…I cannot stomach another f-cking answer like:
    “it’s a long season”
    “we just didn’t hit today”
    “their pitcher was really good”
    “we have to play better”
    etc, etc, etc, etc…
    They should be honest and say:
    “we are just terrible”
    “our coach is pathetic”
    “choke-rod is sucking our souls dry”
    “we are old and cannot play anymore”
    etc, etc, etc, etc.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 9:59 pm
  • krueg, your performance in this thread has been epic. you may be down on your team’s performance, but *you* have certainly given it your all.

    stuck working June 23, 2009, 10:01 pm
  • This team is maddening SW…no excuse for them being this bad. They should be contending with the players they have, no question.
    I don’t know how much more I can take.

    krueg June 23, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • This team is truly painful to watch right now. There is no other way to put it. They will certainly run hot again this season – how long until they do, how long will it last once they do, how long before it turns back into another cold spell, will they have enough hot streaks to make the post-season etc, etc, who knows. But when A-Rod goes into the tank the entire offense seems to collapse. Ever since the first game of the most recent series they played in Boston, they have looked like a mediocre-to-flat-out-bad team. The ONLY thing I’ve enjoyed watchign lately is Phil Hughes coming out of the bullpen. Everything else is barely clearing the bar of acceptable performance or – more often – tripping and falling before they even attempt to clear it.
    Right now, switch A-Rod and Teixeira in the order. If pitchers have to groove fastballs to A-Rod because they don’t want to face Tex, maybe just maybe A-Rod will remember how to hit. Bat Posada or Cano or even Melky 5th. Get Swisher OUT of the 2 hole – Melky or Cano (whoever is not hitting 5th) would be better suited there. Freaking Angel Berroa would be better suited there at this point. Mix it up Joe, please. It took you at least 2 weeks longer than it should have to sit A-Rod. try not to take as long giving a jolt to the line-up.

  • Wow Krueg, you were in your prime last night. That was a vintage 2000 Pedro performance right there.

    Atheose June 24, 2009, 7:43 am
  • Krueg, that was both fascinating and entertaining. But next time I think you should stop holding back and tell us how you really feel.

    ponch - sf June 24, 2009, 9:38 am
  • My angry rants are more entertaining than the sorry-ass Yankees…I’m still pissed.
    Can Joba get through 4 innings tonight for once? Will the yankees actually score a run? Baby steps for this pathetic bunch…
    NFL training camps open in a month!!! SCIENCE BE PRAISED!!!
