Rehab: Mets-Yanks Gamer I

The Yankees have been demoted to the NL East after their horrible showing in-conference. They face off against their new rivals, the Metropolitans, tonight at Yankee Stadium. Livan Hernandez has numbers that look strikingly similar to Joba Chamberlain’s on the season. If it’s all the same, I think I’ll just watch the Cup.

Swisher batting second, presumably so he could get on base, and then give the other team a free out. Might not even get on base.

Swisher took that one to the warning track as well.
It is Livan up there, so not surprising. Hopefully this is a prelude to a Yanks blowout..

Teixiera down looking at a nasty pitch, low and inside. The Yanks making Livan look good so far..

Joba against Wright, who hasn’t had power but has been hitting for a high average so far with many steals. He basically turned into Reyes.
And as I say that Wright gets on a single on a bloop to center. Expect him to run.

Posada follows that one a double about 5 feet from the top of the center field wall dead center. Anywhere else in the park it might’ve been gone.
The pitch was low and Posada went down and got it. I actually thought it would be a routine fly based off the swing..

The Yankees have to be thankful that following the Sox they get a team whose starting lineup looks like a minor league ballclub with two stars making rehab appearances. God that Mets lineup is underwhelming. And I mean it as an insult to the Mets, not as a reverse jinx.

Melky drove that one and.. it will be caught at the warning track again.
They’re swinging the bat well, but only one run to show for it. I counted 3 warning track outs already out of the first 8 batter, and a HR of course.

Joba with a lead off walk, always a sign of bad things to come..
SF – the Mets might look awful, but the Yanks still got to win for it to count!

Slow roller to Jeter, but it was too slow to be turned DP, especially with the speedy Castillo hitting..

Rivera on in a tie game in the top of the eighth, in Yankee Stadium. But he couldn’t be used last night with a slim lead against the heart of the Sox’ order in the eighth.

sf: i think the issue last nite was an expectation that cc would get past the 8th, and general slow reaction. slightly diff. circumstace.
but look what happened. the result still sux.

Not even when Bret Saberhagan sprayed bleach on reporters have I felt so ashamed to be a Mets fan. That team should all take the rest of the summer off and go work in soup kitchens or something. Do something good for someone.

Gameday originally said “In play, out(s)” so I closed the window. Horrified to see that they won ANOTHER walk-off.

Joe G said “we tried our best to give the game away but we failed”.
Sounds about right.

I really don’t count this as a “walk-off” per se, but you know, one run games are all luck! ;)

Who said A-Rod isn’t clutch?
This was one of the clutchiest pop-fly-turned-walk-off errors in history.
