Is it me or does it look like CC has packed on some pounds since his highly touted slimming down?
Jeter gets hit.
160 games and no HBP’s for Ortiz.
2nd deck bomb for Curtis.
ARod hits the longest out possible….
Whoa, A-Rod pounded that ball, but just stays in the yard.
Cano is hitting .097 points lower than this time last year…story of the season for us. Vomit.
We actually have a lead? Weird.
These Avis commercials are funny.
Should have drilled him. Maybe later.
that’s ok krueg…he had happy feet and looked like crap in that at bat…had the same effect…looked like the bad fatti…no bat flip
Yeah, but I still want him to eat it…160 games dude. Never been hit.
Crawford automatically to third…DON’T THROW IT CERVELLI YOU DICK!!!!
Solid 2 innings for CC…
I really like you as a friend. You are funny and cool. But you suck and need to go away.
Dear Hip Hip,
I never liked you. You rode the coat tails of your much more talented teammates your entire career. It’s hard to think of anything you really contributed to any of the success of the Yankees. Your attitude sucks and you clearly don’t know when to hang ’em up. Please retire? Stop kidding yourself and have some fucking pride.
When the ball goes to the backstop, RUN YOU IDIOT!!!! When you are on first base, STEAL SECOND!!!! Your defense is pretty good.
Tie is supposed to go to the baserunner…right? Guess not.
Safe. He was safe.
Great play by Cano to get the speedy Tek.
nice play cano…dunno krueg, the gardner play could have gone either way…went against us this time…oh well
SAFE! If we had the robot umpires I’ve been asking for…he would have been called safe.
Pressure sensitive bases…
Do not throw the ball Cervelli. Let him have it.
DP. Another zero for CC.
Cervelli is worthless.
Cameron dropped a liner…not. Horrible call.
Jeter steals second…
You suck, blue! Yankees get a break. Jeter on again with Granderson up.
Curtis walks…1st and 2nd, 1 out for Tex…
We’re even for the Gardner call…
Joshy made Tex look foolish that at bat…christ.
FUCKING HITS AROD….
WHEN are we going to DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS BULLSHIT???? BECKETT IS FUCKING LAUGHING!!!!
Make him pay Cano.
Just goes to show you he’s right about himself…he’s not really a strikeout pitcher anymore, having just gotten his first in the 3rd. Oh, Beckett hits another.
or not…1 pitch, weak pop out.
This is ridiculous.
Youk grabs the shallow pop liner thing.
Seems like somebody getting hit on the Sox’ side wouldn’t be all that undeserved at this point, even if game-situation wise, neither was a good time to hit a batter tonight.
Just aim for the middle area, generally, all right, Yanks pitchers?
i’ll say it again, beckett’s a total a**hole thug…felt like deja vu…thought arod was going to dance with captain-tek and get another glove sandwich by the masked toast…oh well…umps are so sleeping if they don’t issue a warning…
gonzo doing his best papi imitation…doesn’t look like cc needs to hit anybody the way these guys are bailing out…
K’s Gonzo again…
Gonzalez looking dumb all day against Sabathia…though he looked the same last time before his last AB against him.
Walks Youk…he won’t nail Papi now.
YES!!!!! NAILED PAPI WITH A 97 MPH FASTBALL!!!!
STANDING OVATION FOR CC!!!!
now a warning!!!…wtf ump…that’s just bullcrap
There. We good now?
NO…we aren’t good now. Pussy warning from the umps. (ala instigator rule)
Still need one more scalp. But it will cost us the game. Might be worth it??? :)
Like there weren’t gonna be warnings in a game where Beckett has already hit two guys and CC, who has been really in control, nails a guy in the thigh.
not if we’re counting the number of hbp’s devine…we still got some catching up to do…but i’d rather we stay classy and leave the bs to thugs like beckett…
the only way that makes sense krueg is if we have a bigger lead late in the game, and joe is planning to take the pitcher out anyway…
I know, I know…still. As I’ve said many times before, it’s easy to take the high road when your team is the one nailing our players every single game.
No damage and Papi gets a welt. Nice.
I would love to see CC vs Big Fatty in a street fight.
I know dc, just saying…we have no bullpen besides Mo so he has to go at least 8!
Of course if Beckett hits someone again…he’s toast.
You really suck Swisher.
Wait. They are actually playing?? How long was the delay?
And fucking Cervelli is catching again. God damnit. Why? He’s freaking awful on every level.
The dead zone of our lineup…Swisher, Posada and Cervelli. An automatic 1-2-3 inning.
He already chucked one into CF dusty…
Single from Posada. Amazing.
my point was that the ump should have warned beckett after the first one devine, and surely after the second one…especially since hbp’s has been a hot topic of discussion throughout this series…just shows the total lack of prep on the part of most of these umpires…
5 HBP for the Yankees, 1 for the Sox.
How dare we overreact.
I didn’t see any of the Red Sox on Yankees HBPs in this series as definitely intentional. I’ll allow one of the Beckett ones probably was. Fine, we’ve hit, what, four of your guys in this series, one of them intentionally. Let’s say 3 unintentional HBP’s = one intentional HBP. Go ahead, hit one more guy. We’re all punchy and gonna be up late anyway. Bring it! Hit AG…you know it’s coming.
Another fucking DP. Basically the last 4 batters are automatic outs. Pathetic.
Intention is not the point. The Sox batters are FAR too comfortable in the box, as evidenced by the offensive assault. We need to move them off the plate, like the Sox do. Right?
I wonder if we came out and drilled 5 Sox in 3 games…would SF’s be as understanding and logical about it all???
Not even 3 games…2 and a couple innings.
Cervelli threw another one away? WHY DO THEY KEEP HIM AROUND??
They have guys who check stats, right? Did they not see that Cervelli was the worst defensive catcher last year? Yes, even worse than Posada. And he doesn’t hit either. He got a very favorable ruling by the scorekeeper on his double yesterday.
We don’t enough breathing room to allow guys like Cervelli to start. Bring up Montero, already. He can’t be worse than Cervelli defensively. He would certainly do better at DH than Posada has too.
I’d be pissed too if I were you, just to be completely fair (I was the guy who just said a few minutes ago the Sox have earned a lump, it’s fine if they have to take it).
I don’t know if it’s really a strategy thing that caused so many batters to be hit in this thing. Do the Sox hit a lot of batters in general? I just think this is a lot of testosterone boiling over.
“…Bring it! Hit AG…you know it’s coming….”
the way he looked bailing out in his last ab, i don’t think i’d bother hitting him…maybe none of them were intentional, but like krueg says, that’s not really the point…i’m not so sure cc’s was intentional either then…he just had a pitch get away from him…he had been trying to pitch papi in and out in the prior at bat when he k’d…so, nah, no intent…oy
Anyway, whatevs, I’m sorry I stirred it up, I didn’t intend to. Y’all are gonna be in first again after tonight and this series will be bygones and hopefully all bad blood settled without the need for further stuff later. I gotta go pay attention to the wife and kid for a little bit (I’m thankfully on the west coast, sorry other dudes who will probably be up later than me regardless of the time zone difference).
They sure hit a lot of Yankee batters…
And we are men, right? Testosterone is always in play. Except for some of our older posters maybe…hehe. ;)
Lester has compiled more HBP’s than anyone in the AL and Beckett has always pounded inside, including heavy HBP totals. The there is knuckle-Wake, who has plenty of HBPs. Yes, the Sox hit lots. For the record, so do the Yanks (AJ is a one-man HBP-machine). But in this rivalry for several years now (except 2009) the Sox have out-HBP’d the Yanks by 20 % as per Paul’s stats in the earlier thread on this topic. In short Devine, yes, the Sox hit a lot, especially so vs. the Yankees over the past decade.
No big deal devine…we’re just talking!
Wife and kid over Yanks vs Sox??? BOOOOOOOO!!! ;)
This game is up to CC…our offense is still atrocious.
Granderson hit. That’s 3.
Beckett trying to set a HBP-record tonight.
Liner up the middle off his scrotum?
Tek threw him out. Wow. Awful.
Varitek wants to catch for another 3 years?!?! Please let it be so…
Hey IH, did you write me into that proposal or what??? I’ve been watching “Selling New York” on HGTV and I’ve picked out a loft or two… :)
Adrian. 0-for-3. 2 outs.
I heart CC.
1-2-3 6th for CC.
Nice to see a pitcher actually earn his paycheck.
You’re in Krueg – I listed you as “Chief Motivational Officer”.
6-pitch CC inning. Take notes AJ. Actually don’t. Just go away.
Sweet. I am ready.
And krueg is really the expression of my id. I am far more mild-mannered in real life. :)
Tex grounds out.
It would be nice to get a few more runs at some point. We have seen this movie before. Score early, then nothing the rest of the game.
Beckett trying to best CC’s 6-pitch inning. 4 pitches, 2 outs.
ARod. What the hell happened to you man???? Cameron withholding or something????
Nice job Robbie. Beckett’s dealing, but we’ll take that. An insurance run would be massive.
GRD for Cano…2 outs.
How about a big 2 out hit…nevermind, Swisher is up. Going to the 7th.
Swisher = .083 with 2 outs and RISP
I truly believe I could do that. Seriously.
He walked! That was best case scenario…
Posada. NOW we’re going to the 7th.
I gotta say, we often complain about announcers, but I really enjoy the Leiter, O’Neill, Kay nights, though Kay annoys me when he’s on his own. Good comment from Paul and Al re: what it’s like as a hitter/pitcher and they’re generally pretty funny together as a 3-some.
Jorge. This would be huge.
Posada = .222 with 2 outs and RISP
Way better than Swish.
I don’t mind Kay…he’s better than grandma and grandpa.
O’Neil, Leiter, Cone, Flash…all good. I like when Cone and Leiter are together.
And Kenny’s voice is silky-smooth!
Failure is Posada’s middle name.
And how perfect is that…Posada grounds out and never leaves the batter’s box. Embarassing. Just embarassing.
he didn’t even run it out…come on jorge…dammit, at least show some effort
Swisher costs us the game. Cut him. Now.
Please put that Swisher error on a loop and force him to watch it for the rest of his life. Un. Be. Liev. Able. The Yankees DESERVE to lose.
Nice gun A-Rod.
Completely misplays a double down the line…Big Fatty almost has a heart attack running the bases and scores.
I want to punch holes through the wall. But this house is a rental.
2-1 I mean. Too angry to type effectively.
Wow – fan interference. Should have been a ground-rule double. Damn.
If I were CC, I would rabbit punch Nick in the dugout. Stupid, worthless piece of shit.
He’s DEFINITELY gone next season so we won’t have to watch his sorry-ass next year at least. I wonder what FA right fielders are out there next year. We need another Paulie O’Neil.
Tie game. Thanks Swisher you fucking asshole.
Blew CC’s awesome start. He may leave after this season knowing how terrible we have become.
Swisher’s throw home there was just ridiculously bad. Lucky cameron didn’t go. Yanks a sac fly away from losing now.
We don’t deserve you. I’ll be up in NYC in August but you guys will be on a road trip. If not, I promise I would hunt down Swisher and beat the living shit out of him.
This team is like a broken record…
Do nothing for the rest of the game.
Cough up the lead.
I’m going to bed. Fuck this team.
At least CC hit Papi. Could be the highlight of this quickly imploding season.
Good night. Every time the yanks finish a series with the sox this year I’ve wondered how it is that the yankees are in such strong position in the standings. I suspect that by the next time these teams meet, the Sox will be at least 7 games ahead.
3-8. Wow. Glad I went to bed when I did. This team is going to make ’08 look like a success…
We need to start compiling a ’12 FA list.
well this has happened before…we can’t beat the sox, but everybody else can…that’s what’s keeping it close…it’s still only june and despite losing a 2 game lead within 72 hours, we are only 1 back…ugh, how can i sound so positive about that?…we are playing like crap, getting bad injury news every day it seems, and the sox are flying high…my only concern is that if we just don’t match up well with the sox and continue to lose to them, we might limp into the playoffs anyway, but will be doomed if we have to play them…that’s not a scenario i’m too excited about…i mean just making the playoffs is a nice goal if you’re kansas city…the worst thing for me about last night’s game is that the smug thug got rewarded with a W, while nice guy cc took the L…
Actually what has kept it close was the Sox’ awful start. The fact is that everyone else isn’t beating the Sox. They are 34-16 since the 2-10 opening skein. They aren’t just beating the Bombers.
I use music to cope…
We just have to hope the Sox choke now…we are not going to factor into the decision.
Man, and the Bruins too. COME ON CANUCKS!!!
PS Have we EVER been sellers at the trade deadline??? This might be the time.
good point sf…obviously i’m not being objective because i’m not too happy right now…i guess what i meant about everybody else being able to beat the sox is that of their 26 losses only 1 has been at the hands of the yankees, in 9 tries…with the sox winning 6 straight [3 against the yanks] and the yanks losing [another] 3 straight [all against the sox], their respective forturnes are heading in opposite directions…
Not even Ichiro can save us now…
We had a hell of a 16 year run though. We need some new heroes!
