  • Yikes, when was the last time the Yankees put out their “A” lineup? Not since the 15-inning marathon, I think. And yet they’ve won all but one game since then. Even more impressive when you consider that.

  • Scrub squad starting the game today…lame.

  • Leadoff single for Jeter…ties all-time mark for most hits by a SS EVER! How anyone can ever say that he is overrated is just pure haterness…period.

  • Not sure what ARod was doing in that AB…kinda stood there and watched a bunch of pitches???

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:15 pm
  • Efficient first inning from Joba.

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 4:22 pm
  • Nice 1-2-3 1st for Joba…

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:25 pm
  • Well, this no-name rookie douche is mowing us down.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:25 pm
  • Joba looking good…1-2-3 2nd.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:34 pm
  • Joba hitting 94, 95 early on. Good to see.

  • Sick bunt by Pena…love the kid.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:38 pm
  • CAPTAIN CLUTCH WITH THE RBI DOUBLE!!!! 1-0!!!
    MOST HITS IN THE HISTORY OF MLB BY A SS!!!! JETER IS GOD!!!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:41 pm
  • Where does Jeter rank in terms of all-time shortstops?
    Wagner
    A-Rod
    Jeter?

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 4:43 pm
  • Jeter is the best ALL-AROUND SS ever…The Wizard is probably the best defensively, Jeter offensively.
    So, in closing…Jeter is the best SS in history.
    GREAT GRAB BY AROD! 1 more out boys…

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:51 pm
  • Remember that A-Rod was a great offensive and defensive shortstop before his move to third.
    It’s crazy to think that we’re seeing two of the best 3 shortstops of all time on the same side of the diamond.

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 4:54 pm
  • Joba walks the bases loaded…not good. Not cool either.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:54 pm
  • 2 run double…1-2. 2nd and 3rd. F-ck.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:55 pm
  • Joba looks awesome in the first two innings and then melts down…LIMIT THE DAMAGE!!!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:56 pm
  • 1-2 count…can he put away Griffey???

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:57 pm
  • YES HE CAN! K! Alright…limited the damage. Time for the bats to go to work, Scrub Squad Style!!!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 4:58 pm
  • SWISH TO DEAD CENTER!!! 3-2 GOOD GUYS!!!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:02 pm
  • Hinskie with a single…1st and 1 out.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:04 pm
  • 8 games up in the East now…

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:06 pm
  • Joba is getting rocked. About to blow the lead as he gives up ANOTHER DOUBLE…2nd and 3rd, 1 out. F-CKING COME ON JOBA!!!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:13 pm
  • Nice play by Swish…saves a run. 2 outs. Almost doubles up the runner at 2nd. ONE MORE JOBA!!!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:15 pm
  • How could Jeter miss the tag there? The ball beat the runner.

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 5:15 pm
  • Joba gets the fly out to CF…whew. Wiggled out of trouble…

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:18 pm
  • Joba having another tough inning…might not be our day today with Joba’s meltdown nearly complete…f-ck.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:30 pm
  • Got Griffey again…ONE MORE JOBA!!!!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:33 pm
  • There it is…0-2 count, FB right down the middle, RBI single…3-3. Joba blows the lead finally. Jerry bobbled the ball in CF too so there was no throw…may have been close. F-ck. About the completely blow the lead…1st and 3rd now.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:36 pm
  • 3-4. F-ck you Joba you piece of garbage. Get his sorry-ass out of the game now Joe.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:38 pm
  • Got a grounder…need some offense again.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:40 pm
  • Blech, a Buchholzian start from Joba today.

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 5:40 pm
  • No offense at all.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 5:47 pm
  • Yanks just don’t have it today. Pity it had to come against as bad a team as Seattle. But then again, they get an even worse team up next.

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 5:54 pm
  • It’s over…f-ck it. Won 3 out of 4, can’t ask for more!!! Start another streak tomorrow in the Bay Area!

    krueg August 16, 2009, 6:34 pm
  • Now it’s really over…i’m out.

    krueg August 16, 2009, 6:36 pm
  • It’s nice not having to be at all mad/disappointed/frustrated after a bad loss like this.

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 6:38 pm
  • I’m certainly disappointed – by Joba’s outing if nothing else. But I get what you’re saying A-YF – it’s not like the Yanks lost ground today. Need to finish the west coast swing strong against Oakland.

    IronHorse August 16, 2009, 8:54 pm
  • Hey, I’m not A-YF. Just for the record.

    AndrewYF August 16, 2009, 9:20 pm
  • Oh yeah – sorry about that Andrew.
