Long Day’s Journey Into Night: Yanks-O’s Doubleheader

Bartolo just struck his way out of a jam in the top of the first, and I detected a message: Believe in me! I am Bartolo Colon, my butt cells have been injected into my right arm and I am a #2!

The message is important because if we all believe it, including Cashman and the Steinbrenners, then the Yanks hold onto Montero, Betances et al, and Ubaldo or Kuroda don't come here. This game is interesting for the subtext. And if you all started believing more in subtext, then a Baltimore Orioles game can be a fascinating thing. Two of them makes life doubling fascinating!

  • We’re screwed either way…they’ll ruin the young pitchers, Montero actually being good is a smoke screen or else the kid would be playing in the majors at some point. What is he, like 28 by now?
    There is no help via trade. We are stuck with this underwhelming, old, slow, injury-ridden bunch.
    No hope. No WS. No anything.
    We are doomed.

  • WAIT…we actually got a base hit!!!! I cannot believe my eyes!!! And Jorge or all people????
    Here comes the DP.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 1:53 pm
  • Only the Yankees can SAC bunt and get the runner thrown out at 2nd…of course Posada is slower than my 90-year-old grandmother.
    Failure.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 1:53 pm
  • CERVELLI GRD???? What the hell is going on here???
    2nd and 3rd with 1 out…can we ACTUALLY score a run???

    krueg July 30, 2011, 1:55 pm
  • Wild pitch goes to the backstop…but bounces right back to the catcher…no run.
    We are cursed. Everything goes wrong.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 1:56 pm
  • GARDNER COMES THROUGH!!!!! Laser beam off the 3rd baseman…both runs score.
    2-0.
    Finally.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 1:58 pm
  • Nunez pops out to the infield…worthless. 2 outs.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:00 pm
  • Tex pops out weakly…keeping in line with that impressive batting average of his.
    2-0 after 3.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:02 pm
  • Leadoff single for the O’s…

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:05 pm
  • Another single…1st and 3rd…no outs…
    Giving the lead right back. Yankee-style.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:06 pm
  • 2-1.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:09 pm
  • 2-2.
    Colon meltdown. 76 pitches in the 4th.
    Bullpen will puke up about 7 more.
    I’m fucking done. Back-to-back losses to the fucking basement dwelling Orioles….at home. We are a fucking joke. Period.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:15 pm
  • By the way, it’s pretty obvious the Yanks are going to deal for a pitcher. Colon’s pixie dust has run out.

    Nick-YF July 30, 2011, 2:16 pm
  • Swisher is the GREATEST YANKEE EVER!!!!!
    4-2

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:29 pm
  • “By the way, it’s pretty obvious the Yanks are going to deal for a pitcher.”
    Probably…but will said pitcher be a difference-maker? Doubtful.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:29 pm
  • Ubaldo would be a difference-maker, or, at least has the upside.
    Thank god, the Yanks are playing the O’s.

    Nick-YF July 30, 2011, 2:33 pm
  • Oh yeah, but do you think we’re going to give up the farm for him? Is he really worth it?

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:36 pm
  • Another big hit for Cervelli…5-2. :)

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:39 pm
  • Man, that’s a tough question. I say yes, that he’s worth a lot since he’s young, has a track record of being an ace, is cost -controlled and I don’t trust the Yanks to find a place for Montero on the team. I mean I guess I don’t think he’s worth the farm, but Montero/Betances/Nova? Sure.

    Nick-YF July 30, 2011, 2:40 pm
  • And clearly we can spare Montero since we have Cervelli!

    Nick-YF July 30, 2011, 2:41 pm
  • I guess if you could keep Banuelos…I would do it too. Although I have no faith in our team to develop any young pitchers really…

    krueg July 30, 2011, 2:44 pm
  • RBI for Chavez…6-2.
    Sexy.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 3:03 pm
  • 7-2. Jorge RBI groundout.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 3:05 pm
  • 8-2. Dickerson RBI single.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 3:08 pm
  • I gotta say, Colon’s stuff is looking pretty filthy. That two-seamer has a crapload of movement on it.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 4:40 pm
  • Champagne Super Nova is back for tonight’s game…I am interested to see how he fairs. He certainly can’t be worse than Hughes. Can he???

    krueg July 30, 2011, 6:04 pm
  • Nope…Nova is fucking garbage too…bases loaded, 2 outs…30 pitches already in the 1st inning…
    Pathetic.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:22 pm
  • GREAT play by Gardner saves Nova’s sorry-ass…still…30 pitches. 1 inning.
    We need about 10 runs tonight but unfortunately their is a lefty on the mound so forget about it.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:24 pm

    1-0
    1st and 3rd with 1 out…for Swish.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:36 pm
  • Swisher hits a hard grounder that the SS bobbles…Tex scores, Swish safe at 1st…
    2-0
    1st and 3rd, still 1 out…Andruw

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:39 pm
  • ANDRUW BLASTS one of the top of the wall in left center…
    3-0
    2nd and 3rd with 1 out…
    This is much better.

    Batted around in the 1st.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:47 pm
  • JETER!!!!!!! 7-0!!!!!!! 2-RUN SINGLE…gets to 2nd on the throw…
    2nd and 3rd with 1 out…batted around…unreal.
    Every game should be like this.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:50 pm

    COME ON TEX!!!!

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:54 pm

    THIS IS FANTASTIC!!!!!
    I wasn’t convinced Ubaldo was the answer for us…but he has a cool name…

    krueg July 30, 2011, 7:56 pm
  • RBI SINGLE FOR CANO!!!!!
    10-0.
    I am very happy.

    This is my dream.

  • Inning is over. Batted around to the #7 hitter. Incredible.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:05 pm
  • Holy shit.
    …Holy shit.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:06 pm
  • In other news: Ubaldo Jimenez has been scratched from his start against San Diego tonight.
    He’s probably going somewhere.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:07 pm
  • Sounds like Ubaldo is going to Cleveland.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:12 pm

  • Clearly, Ivan Nova inspires greatness in these Yankees hitters.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:17 pm
  • Jeter K’s. Lame.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:18 pm
  • Curtis blasts one down the line but he is held to a single by both a bad bounce and Markakis’ cannon for an arm…

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:19 pm

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:20 pm

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:22 pm

    This is cartoonish.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:23 pm
  • 15-0 after 2.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:24 pm

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:39 pm
  • I just hope no one gets blasted and injured…you know it’s coming.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:39 pm
  • Yeah, Buck Showalter doesn’t like losing. Just ask David Ortiz.
    God, I hate that guy.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:41 pm
  • Buck Showalter is such a tool.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 8:42 pm
  • We need to save some runs for next weekend in BAH-sten…

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:45 pm
  • Nothing wrong with a little bit of batting practice, kreug.
    Maybe the Orioles should sign Cano’s dad.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:53 pm
  • Curtis leads off the 4th with a single…
    Do you think we can score 30????

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:53 pm

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:54 pm
  • Wups. I just did that twice somehow.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 8:54 pm
  • Dude…you know I love BP during a game!!!
    Another hit for Cano!!! 4-for-4…

    I love it.

    Grand Salami???

    krueg July 30, 2011, 8:59 pm
  • No runs that inning….DAMN!!! ;)

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:00 pm
  • This is insane. Cano is 4 for 4 and the Orioles have only recorded 10 outs.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 9:00 pm
  • This offense sucks.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 9:00 pm
  • Right?
    It certainly seems we are stuck with the team we have.
    Which means no #28 this year.
    Fuck.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:05 pm
  • COME ON…another scoreless inning????? ;)

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:14 pm
  • Jimenez deal is done; they removed him after 1.0 inning and he’s getting hugged in the dugout.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 9:17 pm
  • FUCK!!!! Vlad hits one out…
    16-2

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:19 pm
  • I just read the Sox are getting Harden from the A’s…

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:22 pm
  • Looks like it, Krueg. No word yet on what we gave up, though it probably isn’t very much given Harden’s injury history.
    Supposedly the package the Yankees offered for Jimenez had Hughes as the main piece.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 9:26 pm
  • Harden is one of those pitchers that comes with the word “potential” and a groan.
    He was lights-out a few years ago with the Cubs. Can’t stay healthy, though.

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 9:27 pm
  • lars Anderson was pulled from PawSox game tonight, could be part of a Harden deal.

    BillsBurgSF July 30, 2011, 9:30 pm
  • 17-2.
    3 more.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • Cano is 5 for 5 with 5 RBIs!!!

    DustyDrB - YF July 30, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • I would literally die from happiness if we traded Hughes.

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • To be honest I’ll be disappointed if Lars is part of the Harden deal.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • Boo, looks like it’s official that it’s Lars Anderson and a PTBNL in the deal.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • YO ADRIAN >>>>> Lars

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • Captain America loads the bases with a seeing-eye single…
    COME ON!!!! WE NEED 20!!!!

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:52 pm
  • Fucking DP. FUCK!!!!!

    krueg July 30, 2011, 9:55 pm
  • Ath, kinda have a half way decent guy at 1st ;-) What did you like about Lars, he hasn’t really panned out as far a I can tell.

    BillsBurgSF July 30, 2011, 10:05 pm
  • He’s still young, and even though we don’t have a spot for him on the major-league roster I don’t like selling a prospect while his value is low, at least with a prospect like Lars who I expect to rise some.
    Oh well, Red Sox win.

    Atheose - SF July 30, 2011, 10:10 pm
  • GREAT inning by Soriano…couple K’s…1-2-3.
    Didn’t get 20 though… ;)
    GOOD TIMES!!!!
