Part Deux: Yanks-Sox Saturday Gamer

Or 'Doh?  C.C. has been crap against Boston this year.  John Lackey has been crap more often than not this year.  Let's see what happens today.  Comment away.

  • It is simply amazing to me that Joe keeps throwing the rotting corpse that is Posada into the lineup. And Cervelli? Why? This is a big game…can Muscle not handle a day game after a night game? The Sox should run wild on Cervelli’s noodle arm and his bat is even worse…

    krueg August 6, 2011, 3:08 pm
  • Won’t matter when Lackey gets the fucking shit kicked out of him by the Yankee lineup. I’m just hoping for a win on gloriously Joe-Morgan-free Sunday Night Baseball at this point.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 3:15 pm
  • CC and Cervelli have some sort of love affair going krueg, which isn’t to say Cervelli is now his personal catcher, but they certainly enjoy working together and have said as much. As for Martin, the guy is coming off a serious leg injury from last year – day rest after night game doesn’t bother me in his case. Gotta see if CC can finally have a strong start vs. Boston this season. 40% of his losses this year are against this team…

  • You are always the voice of reason IH… :)

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:01 pm
  • Listening to these two call the Saturday games is painful…basically a Sox broadcast team.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:07 pm
  • Lachey BREEZES through the first inning without even a minor problem…here we go.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:17 pm
  • CC answers with his own 1-2-3…
    0-0 after 1.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:24 pm
  • Tex is like 4-159 against the Sox with 100 K’s and no HR’s or RBI’s.
    Great job Mark.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:27 pm
  • Lachey walked Swish with 2 outs, but besides that…not even close to a hint of any kind of trouble. EASY 2nd inning…

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:33 pm
  • Looks like our offense is once again AWOL…leave it to CC again? I’m sure he appreciates it.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:33 pm
  • 1-2-3 2nd for CC…so far so good…
    0-0 after 2.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:41 pm
  • Posada is leading off I believe…so that’s automatically 1 out.
    I can just see the Sox yelling, “EASY OUT, EVERYONE MOVE IN!!!” like when we were kids playing in the backyard…

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:41 pm
  • What a HUGE surprise…fouls out.
    Go away Posada. Please. I hate you.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:46 pm
  • Cervelli…automatic out #2 steps to the plate…

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:47 pm
  • Or not…single. No hitter is done. Whew.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:48 pm
  • Gardner fouls out after running the count full…2 outs.
    Jeter up. Can you do something? Please?

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:51 pm
  • Nope. K.
    Lachey is making us his bitch…of course.
    Back to CC to pitch a 9 inning shutout to have any chance of winning.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:55 pm
  • Here we go…leadoff double for Crawford.
    Now we watch CC implode and lose to John fucking Lachey.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 4:58 pm
  • Walks the catcher…1st and 2nd, no outs…
    I would say the Sox will score 5 or 6 runs this inning…maybe even run CC out of the game.
    Bunt, 2nd and 3rd with 1 out now…
    0-2 in a matter of minutes.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:00 pm
  • Jacoby steps in…HR maybe?

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:01 pm
  • CC is throwing a LOT of balls…nibbling like he’s Hughes or something????
    Are you actually scared of them CC????

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:03 pm
  • SAC.
    Runner to 3rd.
    Game. Over.
    Lachey >>> CC

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:04 pm
  • Single by Curtis, walks Tex, hits Cano…
    Bases loaded with no outs.
    Swish. Come on dude.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:22 pm
  • Jesus, Lackey. You suck. Bases loaded, none out.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:22 pm
  • DP. Solid. Still need one more to keep the lead. 2-1 Sox, runner at 3rd.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:25 pm
  • Best case scenario for the Sox…Swisher hits a weak, pathetic, fucking stupid grounder into a fucking double-play, the Yankee calling card…
    Runs scores but the big inning is instantly wiped.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:25 pm
  • Well…I’m gonna say now that it’s tied that giving up only 2 was pretty much the best way I could have imagined this unfolding. Hopefully he can get the third out now. Bastard.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:26 pm
    RBI single.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:27 pm
  • Posada is up dude. It’s certain. 3 outs.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:27 pm
  • God damn Fox blacked out right during Cano’s at bat. Fuckign Gamecast again. Yeah, I’m getting now.

    DustyDrB - YF August 6, 2011, 5:29 pm
  • I’m sorry…I know it’s wrong to wish injuries on anyone…but it would serve the greater good if Posada would just blow a fucking hammy or something. He is killing us. The guy is a fucking embarrassment.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:29 pm
  • 1 pitch. Another leadoff double.
    What the fuck CC??? Why do you SUCK against Boston??? Do you and Tex have a running bet on who can suck WORSE against the one team you HAVE to beat????
    Fucking pathetic.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:33 pm
  • Should Chavez take over the DH role when A-Rod comes back? Yes.
    Will Chavez take over the DH role when A-Rod comes back? No.

    DustyDrB - YF August 6, 2011, 5:36 pm
  • For fuck’s sake, CC. What the hell is wrong with you against Boston?

    DustyDrB - YF August 6, 2011, 5:38 pm
  • That was easy…
    Game. Set. Match.
    Bases loaded with no outs = 2 runs for us
    1st and 3rd with one out for Boston = 5? 6 runs???
    You really need to grow some fucking balls CC. Seriously.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:38 pm

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:41 pm
  • You just let Marco fucking Scutaro beat you CC.
    You are a fucking embarrassment.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:43 pm
  • Fucking…sweet.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:44 pm

    DustyDrB - YF August 6, 2011, 5:45 pm
  • YOU ARE A FUCKING JOKE CC!!!!! WAY TO FUCKING REPRESENT YOU FAT, WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT!!!!!! Who give a fuck that you can beat a bunch of garbage teams when you CLEARLY can’t beat the ONE FUCKING TEAM we need to beat to win the East.
    Fuck you CC. FUCK YOU.
    I’m done. I’m going to fucking puke. JOHN LACKEY OUT PITCHED YOU CC YOU FAT FUCKING ASSHOLE!!!! Live with that dickhead.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:46 pm
  • This is a swear-happy thread. Fuck yeah.
    Also, fuck you Fox and MLB, for not letting me watch on MLB.TV, so, since I don’t have cable, I have to listen to the goddamn radio for this (which is romantic and old-school and shit, but I like the pretty pictures, so again, thanks, you money-hungry bastards).
    Luckily, my Xbox 360 Live thingy lets me watch the ESPN games.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:48 pm
  • Fucking Cervelli…I am fully expecting the Yankees to answer in a big way here.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:49 pm
  • You see what I’m saying here, right? 7-3.
    Lackey is awful.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:51 pm
  • How is the awfulness of CC’s pitch selection abundantly clear to me, some asshole sitting on his couch three beers in, and not to him.
    Again, ten straight fastballs? What the hell????????? There is no middle finger big enough!

    DustyDrB - YF August 6, 2011, 5:54 pm
  • You guys have this game in the bag devine…don’t sweat it dude.
    I’m going to drink myself into a coma.
    CC is a huge disappointment.
    Our offense will choke. DP coming right here.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:55 pm
  • Tex is even more worthless than CC…

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:55 pm
  • See…K. Tex is fucking garbage.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:56 pm
  • So let me get this straight…he gives up a hit to Cervelli, plunks Gardner, gives up a liner to Jeter, then K’s Granderson AND Teixeira?
    Baseball is weird.
    He still needs one more.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:56 pm
  • 2 on, nobody out…1 fucking run against the “meat” of our order. But as we all know, there is no meat there…unless huge vaginas are considered meat because that’s what they all are.
    Lachey >>>>>>>> CC
    How’s that feel you fat worthless piece of shit?

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:57 pm
  • OK boys…I’m turning it off. I’m not letting this team ruin yet another weekend for me.
    Bottom line? The Sox are clearly a better team and have a chance to win it all. We don’t. Period.

    krueg August 6, 2011, 5:58 pm
  • And he gets the grounder.
    I’d let him pitch till he gives up a baserunner in the 6th.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 5:59 pm
  • Which will be the first batter of the inning, but whatever.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 6:00 pm
  • He has a 7-3 lead, so why am I feeling the same way about Lackey as krueg is feeling about Sabathia right now?
    Baseball is weird indeed …

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 6:06 pm

    Devine August 6, 2011, 6:07 pm
  • You called it, Devine. Maybe we should try reverse jinxes.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 6:09 pm
  • Actually no … we need to reinforce how brilliant Lackey actually is.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 6:10 pm
  • Yeah, pbe, can’t say it gives me much pleasure…lucky Youk got the liner (if the radio is any indication). He does K Posada, not that that deserves an award or anything (no offense, YF’s…you can say the same for Crawford this year).
    Welp, he got through 6, only giving up 3. I feel like that’s better than he actually pitched, but I really don’t have much to complain about. 9 more outs.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 6:15 pm
  • Well, Lackey’s numbers are ok for today. More runs now, please. And three good innings from the pen.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 6:16 pm
  • Crawford 3-for-3 off a tough lefty is just nuts.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 6:19 pm
  • Radio is giving shit to the vendor who apparently let a bunch of cups onto the field. Hee hee. Weird delay of game.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 6:20 pm
  • Ellsbury has now hit more HR than Gonzalez

    Rob SF August 6, 2011, 6:21 pm
  • 6 more outs as Aceves gets his 3 with no runs scored.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 6:34 pm
  • Bard having a rough go already.

    Rob SF August 6, 2011, 6:54 pm
  • Tex goes yard off Bard to start the 8th. 3-run lead, entire lead from Ellsbury’s homer now.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 6:55 pm
  • Tres mas.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 7:02 pm
  • Damn, too bad I had to miss this!
    I was sulking after last night, actually WORKING, because I was so sure that the Servile One would crap the bed that I miss all the fun.
    But krueg’s commentary preserves the mood………as Isaid yesterday, its one of the big draws of this site.
    Sorry dude, just rough YFSF humor.
    Papelbon can always still blow it – it’s happened before, God knows……

    dabize August 6, 2011, 7:11 pm
  • Yanks bullpen not helping them right now. 1 inning, 4 walks and a hit. Hopefully a little something to pad the lead.

    Rob SF August 6, 2011, 7:16 pm
  • Scutaro….meh.

    Rob SF August 6, 2011, 7:17 pm
  • What the hell has got into Carl Crawford?
    (Jim Bouton says: 3 greenies! )
    The Sox are in danger of handing JP a non-save situation, in which his ERA has been approximately 127.653 this year.

    dabize August 6, 2011, 7:17 pm
  • Ellsbury puts it on ice (most likely). 9-4 after the bases loaded single. 6 of the 9 runs driven in by Ellsbury.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 7:18 pm
  • Ells making the contract negotiations with Boras out to be a future nightmare.

    Rob SF August 6, 2011, 7:18 pm
  • Ladies and gentlemen: once more the amazing Jacoby Ellsbury!!

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 7:18 pm
  • Pedey sac fly. 10-4.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 7:20 pm
  • Ells had better hope the Sox score 6 more…….
    I don’t trust Paps with any lead in the range of 2 -10 runs

    dabize August 6, 2011, 7:22 pm
  • Scary moment there with Noesi.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 7:22 pm
  • It’ll be Wheeler. Paps will save tomorrow’s game.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 7:23 pm
  • Ah….good.
    Scoring off of Noesi is an added bright spot.
    Guy is really good and has stopped the Sox in the past (having an off day today though).
    Maybe it means the Yanks won’t pitch him against us, and will send in Ayala instead.

    dabize August 6, 2011, 7:27 pm
  • Wheeler?….really?

    Rob SF August 6, 2011, 7:27 pm
  • K. Two more outs.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 7:27 pm
  • Jeter flies out. One more.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 7:28 pm
  • Granderson walks. Ball 3 looked pretty good to me.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 7:32 pm
  • Dan thinks this game wasn’t interesting enough?
    Not up to NYY-RS standards?

    dabize August 6, 2011, 7:33 pm
  • Texeira flies out. Back tied for first.

    pale blue eyes August 6, 2011, 7:37 pm
  • Two baserunners, no runs. Works for me. Tomorrow, the rubber match for the 1-game lead with 2 months to play.

    Devine August 6, 2011, 7:40 pm
  • Just occurred to me: this would be a good metaphorical image for tomorrows game, and YFSF in general:
    The Web rules

    dabize August 6, 2011, 7:46 pm
  • I cannot take another day of Posada and Andruw Jones…Maybe they can “mistakenly” leave them in Boston. I don’t care if Montero hits .125, it can’t be any worse than watching the ghosts of Posada and Jones. In addition to Montero I find it very difficult to believe that there isn’t a younger OF that can be just as awful as Andruw Jones, but with some upside. Seriously and honestly marching these guys out there day after day is far more upsetting than losing to John Lackey.

  • I cannot take another day of Posada and Andruw Jones…Maybe they can “mistakenly” leave them in Boston
    Leave them in the JD Drew Memorial Training Room

    dabize August 7, 2011, 10:24 am
  • Haha. Yeah I really feel for these older players it just flat out sucks to get old, I get it. You try and respect what they gave you over their time with your team, but you can’t let that blind you from what you see on a daily basis. Jones and Posada are awful, absolutely over-matched on a daily basis. Sure both are good enough to have spurts where they look like ML players, but all in all they are below average options at this point in their careers. Heck Jones gets replaced at the end of games for defensive purposes and Posada plays 2 spots DH and 1B, come on Cash make the right move.

    John - YF August 7, 2011, 10:57 am
