Freddy Garcia is on the mound for the Yankees tonight, facing the Royals at The Stadium. The Chief wasn't sharp his last two times out, allowiing 17 hits in 12 innings, but he did fan 8 while walking only two his last outing in Detroit. KC sends Kyle Davies. Comment away.

I won’t be able to watch it but the Royals have some hitters now. Hosmer is especially exciting. And they have a lot more in the pipeline.
Freddy Garcia’s nickname is The Chief?
Russell is awesome.
CAPTAIN CLUTCH RBI SINGLE!!!! 1-0!!!
Two out magic.
Gardy triples, Jeter drives him in.
Back to the Chief!
Leadoff single for Tex…come on ARod…let’s go brother!!!
Man ARod is fucking horrible right now…like really, really, really bad.
A-Rod is lost. It’s crazy he went from crazy awesome to crazy terrible with no in-between.
Using the word crazy three times in one sentence is also…insane.
Cano singles…1st and 2nd…1 out…
Unfortunately, here comes Swish and Hip Hip…the automatic out machines.
Swisher is worthless. Trade him, get Ichiro.
2 outs. At least it wasn’t a DP.
But here comes Hip Hip so the inning is over.
Told you. Fucking pathetic.
The Chief is hanging in there…great grab to save a couple runs by Swish.
Where the hell has our offense gone??? This is ridiculous!!!!
It’s that complete on or off shit. Guys are either raking or swinging toothpicks with no in-between. So our hot hitters get on, and then the cold ones fail to deliver.
AROD COMES THROUGH!!!! 2 OUT, 2 RBI SINGLE!!!!
There it is big guy!!!
“It’s time” is right.
You may want to think about running out of the box Swish…you ass. A single off the wall??? Joe needs to do something about that bullshit. ARod does it too…
Have you ever seen Jeter not run hard??? Never. Assholes.
Well…the two worthless brothers strike again. 3-0 count to a K, plus thrown out running by a fucking mile.
1-2-3 inning by our awesome offense…
Robertson on in relief in a tough spot.
Throw more strikes, Davey.
Enter the “strength” of our team…our bullpen to blow another fucking lead.
Hey gents. Touchy part of the game here with bases jacked, 2-0 count, clinging to a 2-run lead…
Against the bottom of the fucking Royals order I might add…
Hey IH…we are playing our typical flat game, not taking advantage of our chances to score…
One more dickie.
Strikes, moterf***er!! Can you throw them?!?
I love the passion dusty. Love it.
97 MPH???? Wow. ONE MORE!!!!
Did you get the house back in order IH??? Maybe install a lightning rod or something?
I didn’t want to post this until he got out of it: I really like Roberston this year. He has been brought in to some really sticky spots and seems to come through most of the time.
So-Mo time…if Yanks can’t add a few in the meantime.
It’s working, he’s not throwing as many balls now. Walks piss me off almost more than anything. Probably the only thing that angers me more is Rafael Soriano. Just him in general.
K!!!!!!!! THANK SCIENCE!!!!!
(bad call by the way, but we’ll take it)
Robertson seems to do his best work with the bases loaded…ala 2009 playoffs.
“ala 2009 playoffs”
I’ll take that…
He wasn’t even close to swinging…horrible call.
Make-up call on that outside pitch?
DEREK JETER…CLAP, CLAP, CLAP CLAP CLAP!!!!
Joba up…No Soriano?
I’m sorry to say this so often, but I am so depressed by the fact that John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman call these games. Their just horrible. Their voices – especially hers – canonly be described as “grating”. Their commentary is tired, completely lacking in any insight whatsoever, his missed calls are frustratignly frequent, and on and on. This storied franchise seriously should have good, classy, smooth-talking commentators. These two honestly maybe the most clownish in all of baseball. I’m pissed about it because I follow about half my games each year on the radio rather than TV and I’m just fed up.
I feel for you IH…I only listen to them in extreme circumstances. They are not good. There is no way around it.
Great Josh Johnson/Roy Halladay showdown. 2-1 Marlins in the 8th…
We need JJ…JJ and Ichiro and I’m good.
What’s the latest on your potential move up the east coast krueg??
Joba vs Melky. Weird.
We aren’t close IH…my wife’s research is very complex and she isn’t sure yet when she’ll be done. We’ll have been here 4 years in August and we are hoping this time next year…but it depends on her research.
We should have a better idea in about 6 months I think?
2 straight K’s for Joba…sexy.
Great inning…9 pitches, 2 K’s…1-2-3. Awesome.
Cool. Hope it works out the way you want it to.
Joba has looked really good most of the year.
Tack-on runs fellas…
If it works out the way we want it to…we will meet you at the Stadium for games, dogs and beers!!!
ARod is due for an ABomb. Just sayin’…
Hughes gets a cortisone shot, feels like something got “relieved” in his shoulder, and is eyeing a mid-June return. Sure hope that doesn’t become a regular thing with him. Your body parts can only take a certain number of those shots over time.
Teix walks. Come on A-Rod. Come back to the world of extra-base-hits…
Sounds like a plan krueg. A-Rod up 2-1…meatball coming up…
I’d call him K-Rod but that name is already taken.
His swing just looks awful…I feel like maybe he hasn’t seen Cam in awhile or something???
Can’t believe the Yankees most consistently strong performers have been their starting pitchers. Nice job by Freddy again today.
Very strange indeed…but we’ll take it.
Like we were saying leading up to the season, tread water until we trade for reinforcements.
(because Swish is an automatic out)
Yep. Swisher up. Teixeira growing roots over at first base.
Sterling saying Swisher made the defensive play of the game saving a run. What happened? I joined late…
There were men on 1st and 2nd…a liner was hit to shallow-ish RF and Swish made a nice diving catch…if he would have missed it, both runs would have scored easily…
Nice. Tks. And Swish Ks. bah.
That was an easy call. Swisher can’t hit. I dig his attitude but I would prefer a good player…i.e. Ichiro Suzuki.
Toronto threatening to tack on in the 7th vs. Boston…
Rays losing too…
Single…these games against these crap teams when the Stadium is dead scare me with Mo. These are the ones he blows sometimes.
Bases loaded vs. Aceves (thanks to 2 BBs and one HBP) in the 7th with 2 outs. Could break it open…
Hopefully OUR game doesn’t get broken open…
MO IS AN ATHLETE!!! SNAGS THE LINER AND STARTS THE 1-4-3 DOUBLE PLAY!!!!
YANKEES WIN…THAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA YANKEES WIN!!!!
Mo is a serious athlete. Understatement of the milennium.
Wasn’t pretty from an offensive standpoint, but great pitching and some sweet D…I prefer runs in bulk but I’ll take it.
See ya krueg. Sox have tied it in the 8th. Might watch the end of that one. see ya later.
