Whoops.. I’m Late To The Early Start: Rangers-Yanks Gamer

The Yankees have signed 32-year-old Brian Gordon who opted out of his minor league contract with the Phillies. He starts against the only team with whom he’s had big-league action — he had three relief appearances in 2007 for Texas — while his former club sends C.J. Wilson. The action has already commenced. Comment away.

  • Brian Gordon = greatest pitcher of all time!!!!

  • I’m loving how Gordon is just pounding the strike zone: 39 pitches, 31 strikes.
    Efficiency is underrated. I’ll leave a spot open on my team for a guy like that any day.

  • He looks confident…I like that. Well, I only got to watch the first two innings but so far so good! Aaron Small anyone???

    krueg June 16, 2011, 2:10 pm
  • 4 scoreless innings…3 hits…nice…

  • I have a stupid meeting now…

    krueg June 16, 2011, 2:13 pm
  • I had to look that one up, krueg. But I remember him now. Good reference.

  • Dude got out of bases loaded with one out and Young/Beltre coming up giving up only 1 run. It’s strange seeing the Texas cap on his head in the Gamecast box next to the batters he is facing in Texas caps…
    It is a great story for him though you know? How pyshcued he must be after all these years of toiling and not quite breaking through. Now he is pitching in the cathedral :) – and doing OK with it so far…

  • Great story…hopefully they get him some runs and a win!!! Looks like the Rags got a couple while I was meeting with our CEO.
    I don’t know if any of you are CEO’s, maybe IH, but they are not human in my experience. WAY TOO excited and positive.

  • 2-2 on a HIP HIP RBI DOUBLE!!!
    And then Noesi puts up a zero…looked like from gamecast there was a pretty sweet 3rd to 1st DP in there.
    Noesi has looked pretty good.

  • my title at work, sadly, is, in fact, ceo. Though my title at home is – I believe – punching bag, at least for my 3- and 4 year-olds…so it all evens out….

  • Bunting was so dumb in that situation. Now pinch-hitting with A-Rod is useless and sets up the double play.

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 4:01 pm
  • Bases loaded…1 out…bottom 9th…
    Curtis time.
    I am certain you are one of the good ones IH!!! (too funny that you are though)

  • K. Lame.
    Up to Tex.

    krueg June 16, 2011, 4:07 pm
  • bases loaded = zero runs.
    How many times has THAT happened this season…brutal.

    krueg June 16, 2011, 4:09 pm
  • I feel like the Yankees lead the league in blown bases-loaded situations.

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 4:10 pm
  • Hmm, gutsy move by Girardi, pitching Rivera an extra inning.

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 4:11 pm
  • Rivera is the man.
    Please score a run this inning. The Yankees don’t have anymore bullpen.

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 4:16 pm
  • Please score a run this inning.
    yes, please????

    krueg June 16, 2011, 4:17 pm
  • Shit. A double ticketed to the corner, with Gardner going, would have won the game. But Beltre bobbles and catches it. That sucks.

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 4:29 pm
  • Brian Gordon + Hector Noesi + Cody Wade = #28

    krueg June 16, 2011, 4:39 pm
  • Yankees are hitting line drives all over, they’re just getting caught. Just hit it where they can’t catch it! In the seats!

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 4:44 pm
  • Cory Wade throws nothing but changeups to Hamilton, and Hamilton takes the bait.
    You can always, always, always find right-handed relief options. Stuff it Levine.

  • Hey, you guys can thank my sister’s ex-boyfriend for the in tonight.

    DustyDrB - YF June 16, 2011, 5:06 pm
  • win*

    DustyDrB - YF June 16, 2011, 5:07 pm
  • WALK OFF MAGIC!!!! SWEPT THE RAGS!!!!
    Beautiful.
    The CEO and senior managers headed for the airport…krueg sneaks out the back and gets home JUST in time to see Gardner’s hit. Awesome.

    krueg June 16, 2011, 5:08 pm
  • Your sister dated Brett Gardner?

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 5:09 pm
  • That Gardner sure is a whore… ;)

    krueg June 16, 2011, 5:12 pm
  • Yeah, in early high school. He was kind of a douche then. Not in a mean way, but in a bratty way. You know…farting and showing off his boogers.
    His dad actually played in the minors, but suffered some sort of career ending injury. I think it was a shoulder. Good man, though.

    DustyDrB - YF June 16, 2011, 5:15 pm
  • I mean, 14 and 15 year olds will do that kind of thing. I did, although I certainly wasn’t able to attract the attention of any girl.
    But that’s pretty cool…does she keep in touch with him? Although “hey remember when you were a douche and showed me your boogers” isn’t exactly a great way to stay in contact.

    AndrewYF June 16, 2011, 5:22 pm
  • Yeah, at high school reunions and whatnot. I think their grade had only about 30 people in it (small private school in a small rural town).

    DustyDrB - YF June 16, 2011, 7:52 pm
  • Lowrie left after 1 AB with shoulder tightness; Dan Hoard Tweets that Drew Sutton was pulled after one inning in P’tucket. Jed to DL, I’d bet.

    Buchholz left after 6 with lower back tightness; lets hope he isn’t DL bound, too. But with Andrew Miller en route, that might not be a problem.

  • Sox win, 4-2.
    WOOOOO!

  • Burying the overrated Rays…works for me!

  • Going 8-1 through a non-Oriole AL East road trip…
    …f*ckin’…
    …sweet.

  • Lowrie to the DL might be a blessing in disguise. He’s been a whole lot of nothing with the bat for two months.

    AndrewYF June 17, 2011, 5:04 am
  • Lowrie to the DL might be a blessing in disguise. He’s been a whole lot of nothing with the bat for two months.
    I suspect these are related. Since injuring his shoulder, Lowrie has been epically bad at the plate (.128/.190/205). Before that, he had been .247/.309/.351 since April 28. Not terrific, but more in line with a slump or correction from his blazing-hot start.
