Well, That Was A Freebie: Mets-Yanks Gamer II

“I’ve made a huge mistake.” — Gob Castillo.

Such has been the season of the Arrested DevelopMets, as the Yankees got the benefit of a rare gaffe by one of the game’s top defenders at his position. Hopefully there will be no gift-horse mouth-looking as they send work-horse Andy Pettitte to the bump at the Stadium. The Bombers are 9-3 in games where Andy gets the rock. The Mets send Fernando Nieve (who?), throwing his first start in The Show since his big-league debut season in Houston’s 2006 campaign, so maybe Andy knows something about the kid.

It’s one of the FOX games; hopefully you can enjoy some Saturday afternoon baseball on the telly, just as the baseball gods originally intended. Lineups to follow, comment away.

  • I wish AG, but alas, the game is blacked out, per usual, in good old memphis. so bummed. I guess I’ll just have to gamecast it again.

  • sorry krueg.. blackout saturdays is possibly the most evil thing ever perpetrated upon the baseball fan.
    rain delay likely.

  • ..line-ups added.

  • i really don’t understand the whole saturday blackout policy…what was MLB thinking??? Nothing more frustrating…except voting in Iran perhaps.

  • > what was MLB thinking?
    You give them too much credit.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2009, 4:01 pm
  • Guess so AG…weather looks good in the pregame show???

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:04 pm
  • > weather looks good
    guess so. Pete says it’s a go.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2009, 4:06 pm
  • Nice…game on! Let’s Go Yankees!!!

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:12 pm
  • Pettitte gets through the 1st…a lot of pitches though. over 20.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:21 pm
  • Gotta DVR the game… on daddy duty. Checking out for now.. hopefully catch up by the fifth. Happy saturday!

    attackgerbil June 13, 2009, 4:24 pm
  • You too AG…enjoy raising another little YF!

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:26 pm
  • Very easy 1-2-3 inning for the no name pitcher for the Mets…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:28 pm
  • Pettitte gives up a 2 run homer to the #8 hitter…0-2. awesome.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:36 pm
  • another hit…pettitte is awful.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:37 pm
  • Mark - YF June 13, 2009, 4:38 pm
  • another hit…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:41 pm
  • 1.2 innings, 49 pitches, 4 hits, 2 runs, 1 BB…great job andy. Will we ever have pitching? Ever?

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:42 pm
  • Well in fairness that’s a 1-2-3 inning if the home plate ump was competent.

    Mark - YF June 13, 2009, 4:44 pm
  • only 2 runs thankfully…we are going to need to score some runs at some point???

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:44 pm
  • If, ands, nuts and buts we’d all have a merry christmas Mark…ya know?

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:45 pm
  • ABOMB!!!! 1-2

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:47 pm
  • got one back…come and andy, get your head out of your ass. we need quality innings!

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:56 pm
  • one pitch, one out…that’s better.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 4:56 pm
  • struggling…but got out of it. WAY too many pitches. How in the world is his record so good? The guy seemingly gets knocked around every single start…not to mention we are going to have to go to the pen again. not good.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:04 pm
  • Another no name pitcher lays our lineup down like nothing…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:12 pm
  • OMG JOE BUCK JUST PROPOSED THE YANKS TURN PHIL FRANCHISE INTO A MIDDLE RELIEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! BECAUSE HE’S BEEN LIGHTS SO OUT!!!!!!!!
    i think i’m now completely forever done with joe buck. wtf?!?!?!

    YF June 13, 2009, 5:12 pm
  • joe buck would have turned babe ruth into a pinch hitter. “wouldnt it really be great to have a bat like that coming off the bench?”

    YF June 13, 2009, 5:13 pm
  • 83 pitches to get through 4 innings…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:22 pm
  • I guess that’s the one good thing about it being blacked out here YF…don’t have to listen the Buck’s idiocy.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:23 pm
  • christ…2 pitches, 2 outs for mr. nobody. this is asinine.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:26 pm
  • 4 innings of nothing…great job guys. not.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:30 pm
  • …and here is the meltdown. game is over. realistically, this should be our 5th loss in a row. So much for putting the Sox series behind us, huh??? This team is so frail mentally, how can anyone have any aspirations beyond a first round playoff exit at best? This team is weak, weak, weak…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:38 pm
  • …and another run. you suck so badly pettitte. really, do us a favor and f-cking retire already. lost 4 out of 5. great job boys. joke of a team.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:44 pm
  • finally got our 2nd hit in the 5th inning off of the nobody pitcher…impressive.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:56 pm
  • now…can we get a 2 out hit with RISP??? history says not a chance in hell…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:57 pm
  • surprise, surprise…choke job for jeter. great job.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 5:59 pm
  • let’s see what sorry excuse for a pitcher we puke out there this inning…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:01 pm
  • Nieve, aka Mr. Nobody…5 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits so far.
    Pettitte…5 IP, 11 HITS, 5 ER’s

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:03 pm
  • 1-2-3 inning for Ace. He is our only pitcher with any balls…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:07 pm
  • damon is completely worthless. can’t hit, can’t play D…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:10 pm
  • mr. nobady continues to mow us down with his awesomeness…what a spectacular lineup we have!

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:11 pm
  • god…we really do suck. unbelievable.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:15 pm
  • we cannot get anyone past 3 innings in a start but the Mets get Nieve to give them 6 innings, 2 hits and 1 ER on they road, in Yankees Stadium…

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:17 pm
  • HR…game. fuck this.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 6:20 pm
  • Oh, come on, krueg.
    The Mets will find a way to blow it. You’re fine.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 13, 2009, 6:24 pm
  • Yeap, I’m waiting for the Yanks to load the bases on a walk, a HBP and a catcher’s interference, after which the catcher will accidentally hit the pitcher in the face with the ball, allowing all three runners to score while the Met infielders collide into each other like the Three Stooges in “Three Little Pigskins.” The umpires will then award the game to the Yankees because they feel sorry for everyone at the ballpark, including themselves, who have had to endure the last two hours of Mets baseball.

    Paul SF June 13, 2009, 6:33 pm
  • Another pathetic effort from the yankees. all around garbage. no pitching, no hitting, no defense…this team is going nowhere. again.

    krueg June 13, 2009, 7:04 pm
  • I will be genuinely surprised if the Mets win this game. And yes, I am aware that it is 6-2 National League in the ninth inning. Nothing but a boxscore will make me feel certain about anything about the Mets the rest of this year

    FenSheaParkway June 13, 2009, 7:08 pm
  • That 2-1 to Matsui was low.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • Now he’s way behind and goes down swinging.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • I have the game on but I can’t even watch.

    FenSheaParkway June 13, 2009, 7:20 pm
  • Melky falls behind but works the count back to full, then grounds to Wright to end an eminently forgettable game.
    Mets 6, Yanks 2.

    attackgerbil June 13, 2009, 7:22 pm
  • Lame. I found out it was 6-2 from a friend earlier on, and wow, they got 17 hits. It speaks how awful the Mets are currently that they got 17 hits and only 6 runs. Of course, the Yanks are even worse than that..
