“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.
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.
Guess so AG…weather looks good in the pregame show???
> weather looks good
guess so. Pete says it’s a go.
Nice…game on! Let’s Go Yankees!!!
Pettitte gets through the 1st…a lot of pitches though. over 20.
Gotta DVR the game… on daddy duty. Checking out for now.. hopefully catch up by the fifth. Happy saturday!
You too AG…enjoy raising another little YF!
Very easy 1-2-3 inning for the no name pitcher for the Mets…
Pettitte gives up a 2 run homer to the #8 hitter…0-2. awesome.
another hit…pettitte is awful.
RIDICULOUS non strike three call against Tatis…check out the Pitch FX charting of it:
It’s pitch #8. And it immediately costs us 2 runs, as Santos homers following it.
1.2 innings, 49 pitches, 4 hits, 2 runs, 1 BB…great job andy. Will we ever have pitching? Ever?
Well in fairness that’s a 1-2-3 inning if the home plate ump was competent.
only 2 runs thankfully…we are going to need to score some runs at some point???
If, ands, nuts and buts we’d all have a merry christmas Mark…ya know?
got one back…come and andy, get your head out of your ass. we need quality innings!
one pitch, one out…that’s better.
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.
Another no name pitcher lays our lineup down like nothing…
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?!?!?!
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?”
83 pitches to get through 4 innings…
I guess that’s the one good thing about it being blacked out here YF…don’t have to listen the Buck’s idiocy.
christ…2 pitches, 2 outs for mr. nobody. this is asinine.
4 innings of nothing…great job guys. not.
…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…
…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.
finally got our 2nd hit in the 5th inning off of the nobody pitcher…impressive.
now…can we get a 2 out hit with RISP??? history says not a chance in hell…
surprise, surprise…choke job for jeter. great job.
let’s see what sorry excuse for a pitcher we puke out there this inning…
Nieve, aka Mr. Nobody…5 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits so far.
Pettitte…5 IP, 11 HITS, 5 ER’s
1-2-3 inning for Ace. He is our only pitcher with any balls…
damon is completely worthless. can’t hit, can’t play D…
mr. nobady continues to mow us down with his awesomeness…what a spectacular lineup we have!
god…we really do suck. unbelievable.
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…
HR…game. fuck this.
Oh, come on, krueg.
The Mets will find a way to blow it. You’re fine.
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.
Another pathetic effort from the yankees. all around garbage. no pitching, no hitting, no defense…this team is going nowhere. again.
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
That 2-1 to Matsui was low.
Now he’s way behind and goes down swinging.
I have the game on but I can’t even watch.
Melky falls behind but works the count back to full, then grounds to Wright to end an eminently forgettable game.
Mets 6, Yanks 2.
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..
