  • Nunez has wheels. 16th sb for him. Martin hits sac fly. Another run in.

  • Looks like Soriano might be coming in for the 8th, though Nova is still going strong and is under 100 pitches.
    If he is done, then Nova’s final line for the night:
    7 innings, 5 hits, no walks (I said he had one earlier, don’t know why), and a career high 9 strikeouts.
    The kid is coming around.

  • Jeter runs himself into an out.

    DustyDrB - YF August 4, 2011, 10:18 pm
  • Nova is back out. Still looking sharp.

  • Skip AJ. The decision is obvious. Fuck the money. Skip his sorry ass. Period.

  • 10 K’s for Champagne Super Nova.
    How is the WORLD can they take this kid out of the rotation.
    10 wins. Most in the AL by a rookie.
    AJ HAS GOT TO SIT!!!!

  • Maybe that’s the explanation: has Andrew Miller just been doing an AJ Burnett impression? I certainly feel about him like you do about AJ, krueg.

  • Where was AJ when we were getting high?
    David Robertson is in.

    DustyDrB - YF August 4, 2011, 10:30 pm
  • Robertson finishes the 8th no problem.
    Fantastic night for Nova. 10 K’s. Most of those were swinging strikeouts I believe. Joe’s running out of excuses…

  • Holy cow Martin cranked that ball. He hit the ball hard all night. One finally pays off big. 7-1.

  • Muscle just CRUSHED that pitch…have a seat Mo…save it for Boston.
    We could not be much hotter going into Boston…7 straight???

  • We need to take them out back and shoot them sw…

    krueg August 4, 2011, 10:44 pm
  • I tend to look back on AJ’s starts with anger…

  • With the Boston loss, we’ll be tied with them provided we don’t allow six or more runs in the bottom of the ninth.
    And the box score for this game is misleading. There were tons of hard hit balls that just went to the wrong place. This team is swinging well and pitching well (except for Ass Jack Burnout).

  • Ballgame.
    Tied atop the AL East.
    3 game set in BAH-sten.
    We have to beat them. It’s time.
    D’You know what I mean? Yeah.

  • Noesi feels sorry for Dunn and throws him a bone.
    Carlos Quentin gets no sympathy. Game over. Division tied. And I’m officially amped for this upcoming series.

    DustyDrB - YF August 4, 2011, 10:55 pm
  • All ten of Nova’s K’s tonight were swinging. He is really coming around.

    DustyDrB - YF August 4, 2011, 11:07 pm
  • It blows my mind that the Yankees 1-4 hitters went 1 for 16, but the team still scored 7 runs. The Yankees are really clicking in all areas right now. Bad time for the Sox to face them.

    Atheose - SF August 4, 2011, 11:40 pm
  • Peter Abraham just tweeted this: is it really true that the White Sox didn’t draw a single walk in the entire series? Come on.

  • Yeah sw, the Yanks’ pitchers haven’t allowed a walk in I think 38 or 39 straight innings right now. Some of that is I’km sure due to the impatience of the CWS hitters (Boston doesn’t have that issue so that streak is destined to end shortly!) But if you watched these games you’d also see how remarkably strong the Yankee starters and entire pen has been pounding the K-zone (big exception: AJ — not sure how he didn’t walk anyone…they were too busy putting his balls in play I guess).

  • What the hell was that about, John?
