Yeah what happened to CC? Does it seem like a long-term problem? The Yanks are in trouble if Sabathia is out for anything more than a month.

No tests are schedule for CC, which seems to confirm that the Yankees are just taking it very, very easy with CC. Smart thing to do. And they don’t even necessarily sacrifice the game, as the Yankees’ very good (and very unheralded) starting pitching depth allows them to easily construct a game out of their bullpen.

Although I have no idea why Brett Tomko is pitching in a 2-run game. I guess they want to save Aceves for Tuesday.

Add Tomko to the long, distinguished group of losers on this team…
Another series lost as this pathetic team falls deeper into the abyss of mediocrity at best..

1-2-3 inning again…this team has no heart, no balls, no pride, no anything. Just a f-cking laughing stock of over-hyped losers and mercenaries.

Coke in…let’s see how many runs he can give up??? not that it matters, it’s already over. Not like any of our hitters are actually going to come through anyways…

Was listening to Francesa interview Girardi on Friday on WFAN. He put Joe through an absolute GRILLING. Things I learned:
Francesa seems to believe that there are massive clubhouse issues. Burnett hates Posada. Posada hates Girardi. Veterans in general dislike Girardi. Girardi pooh-poohed this, was pretty convincing. Except for the Burnett/Posada thing. He started off wishy-washy, like he didn’t want to acknowledge this issue publicly, then he found his legs and said it wasn’t an issue. Curious – any of you YFs hear about a Burnett/Posada feud? I live in NYC and hadn’t heard about one, it came as a surprise to me.

And of course, they might score 2 in the 9th before losing again, making it all the frustrating..

What? You mean the Yankees aren’t a closely formed bunch of fun-loving pranksters?
I remember hearing that Burnett had an issue with catchers in Toronto, though I’d have to do some research to find out more info.

> YFs hear about a Burnett/Posada feud?
No, I had not heard specifically about AJ and Jorge having something direct, but I had heard rumors that there was “uncomfortable-ness” (yes, I know it’s not a word) in general between the starters and Jorge.

I don’t know about a feud, but in the Daily News, I think Burnett had said at some point that he was more comfortable with Cervelli.
And we know about Moose, so go figure.

Down three runs, so let’s have a technicality argument over a lineup card issue and completely drag the game into the region of awful. But it looks like Joe got his point across about the illegal player. I think. Jeter pops out to center as play gets underway after a 2-hour legal battle.

Now Melky with ground ball up the middle just past a diving Uggla to bring Gardner as the tying run to the plate in the form of Brett Gardner. Stomach dunt feel gud right now.

Jeter hits the first pitch sharply to Hanley, who throws to Uggla for the force to end the game.
Andrew, I’m really pissed at you right now. It is your fault.
