Let's go Yanks, indeed.

Little early for the Ike Davis coronation, IMO.

2 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 7:29 pm

Hey, new thread! :)
Same broadcast. :(

3 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 7:30 pm

ooooh ... here we are now, entertain us!

4 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 7:30 pm

So it's going to be one of THOSE strike zones, huh.

5 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:31 pm

Is Phil afraid to pitch Wright inside? Because that's where the strike zone is tonight. Inside for righties is being called a strike.

6 Eirias   ~  May 22, 2010 7:33 pm

Shucks. No CG SO.

7 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:33 pm

Argh. Yeah, I had a bad feeling when Davis walked.

I liked those high fastballs. I mean, high in the zone. That showed confidence, and Wright couldn't get them. Fouled them off. He couldn't get him to chase the wide ones, though.

8 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 7:34 pm

Fucking cheap shot.

9 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 7:35 pm

Have to wait for the replay, but did anyone else think Wright got his foot in there before A-Rod's tag?

10 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:35 pm

Oy.

11 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 7:37 pm

NOT a good start... : /

12 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 7:42 pm

Be careful Phil ...

13 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:42 pm

Good job by Randy.

14 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 7:44 pm

Hey, look at Phil, laying off that slider!

15 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:45 pm

Heh.
Can't fool Phil with a change-up!

16 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:45 pm

[15] ... or slider.
Off-speed pitch out of the zone.

17 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 7:45 pm

don't get hurt!!!

18 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 7:45 pm

Nice ab, Phil!

19 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 7:45 pm

[15]

Griffey, Jr. was caught napping during a change-up ... :-)

20 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 7:46 pm

[16] Yeah, whatever it was!

21 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 7:46 pm

i hate that he now has to go straight to the mound.

22 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:47 pm

[19] I love the whole concept of people napping during baseball games. There's something so appealing about it, so compelling.

23 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:49 pm

That's more like it.

24 rbj   ~  May 22, 2010 7:50 pm

Just checking in, I got the Tiggers-Dodgers game

Twins - Brewers still going, 7 up, bottom 9 2 outs bases loaded and a deep fly out. This one goes to ten.

25 Eirias   ~  May 22, 2010 7:50 pm

Truly life-altering problems, those.

26 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 7:51 pm

[22] ...but if you snooze, you lose...

27 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:51 pm

[24] Yeah, but this one goes to eleven.

28 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 7:52 pm

[27] haha.. "these go to eleven".

29 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 7:53 pm

Wow, that was fast. Went into the kitchen to fix a little something and missed three whole outs.
Well done, Phil

30 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:53 pm

Damn, Phil.

Good thing that first inning didn't count!

31 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 7:53 pm

Ollie Perez refused a minor league assignment ... so now he's the highest-paid middle inning reliever in the majors.

32 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:53 pm

[29] They were good ones, too. K, pop, K.

33 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 7:53 pm

[27] eh eh eh.

my downbeat just got pushed back a half-hour, so i should be able to catch 2 innings or so. hopefully, i get the NY game on fox...

34 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:54 pm

[31] Kei Igawa is very happy,

35 rbj   ~  May 22, 2010 7:54 pm

[27] And my Kenwood receiver actually does go up to 30.

36 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 7:54 pm

[30] that's really funny! : )

[31] well, Big Z isn't back in the rotation just yet, though he will be super soon...

37 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:56 pm

Fuck, we've had a lot of first pitch outs. A couple of long at bats too, but still.

38 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 7:56 pm

[33] That's awesome!
Wait, how long was your upbeat pushed back? Because that could be a problem, if it was only pushed back 15 minutes.

39 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:00 pm

kpopk... most I can make out is a little crocodile with an elevated tail...

40 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:03 pm

Nice play, Alex.

41 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:03 pm

[39] They used to use it to stuff those Clincher softballs!

42 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:03 pm

[39] Umm, that was in ref to [32]. See, the thread still lives...

43 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:05 pm

[38] my upbeats are in perfect time, it's the offbeats i worry about. damn e's and a's! ; )

well, frick - both tuners on my dvr are in use, so no watchy for me. guess i'll do my dishes and follow online for a few extra minutes...

44 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:07 pm

[42] Oh, I got that one. As thelarmis said, it's the offbeat ones I have trouble with.

45 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:08 pm

Haha ... Buck got screwed by Rosenthal

46 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:09 pm

[41] deBeer made you do it, I gather >;)

47 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:09 pm

Such fucking bullshit about home runs being such "exciting product."

How is a home run more exciting than watching to see if a guy can take the extra base, whether he'll be thrown out, whether the fielder can make the play or the ball will fall in.

Home runs are the least exciting part of the game. They're impressive, to be sure, but totally free of suspense.

48 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:10 pm

i don't like this pattern w/ bay & ike. let's break it here w/ wright...

49 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:11 pm

[47]

But you have to admit ... they really do need to move the fences in here about 10 feet all around ...

50 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:11 pm

[45] Tsk, stop spreading rumors like that (unless you're willing to share your sources)!

51 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:11 pm

Oh god damn it!

52 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:12 pm

[48] Ugh. Pattern holds.

53 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:12 pm

[47] conrad's game winning granny for the bravos the other day sure had suspense! in/out of nix's glove at the wall...

but i understand what you're trying to convey : )

FUCK! phil phorgot to break from the pattern.

54 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:12 pm

[46] Well, sure, deBeer and softball. Match made in heaven.
[47] That's not the worst part. The worst part is thinking of baseball as "product".
Everything is product now. Ugh.

55 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:13 pm

[49] It is pretty cavernous. I'm fine with it but yes, they could bring the fences in without turning it into a band box.

56 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:13 pm

[54] Oh, absolutely. Absolutely.

57 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:13 pm

[47] Oh I dunno, one of the more intriguing home runs I saw involved two guys and a white Ford Bronco...

58 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:13 pm

[50]

he was stating that Mets needed to move fences in, as even SD have moved their fences in at Petco, and Rosenthal refuted it :-)

59 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:13 pm

"Angel Pagan" is an odd name, as if someone were trying to make a point. Like a character in a novel.

60 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:14 pm

dice-klay matsu-sucka has a no-no thru 1/3rd of the game. feh!

61 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:14 pm

[53] Hehheheh. Didn't see it.

62 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:15 pm

[59] yeah, i've always thought that. esp if you pronounce both names in english, like an american.

63 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:15 pm

[59] :)

64 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:16 pm

[62]

Can we call him Hellboy?

65 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:16 pm

[54] They sure were thinking baseball as "product" in the 80's, especially in Pittsburgh...

[51] Sorry, I'll bring my 'A' material when the Yanks get back in or near first place...

66 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:19 pm

[65] Ok, I'll look forward to it. :)

67 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:19 pm

[58] Hah, I don't tease you much, do I?

68 rbj   ~  May 22, 2010 8:20 pm

Good news is that Granderson got 4 ABs today, bad news is SWB was one-hit.

69 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:22 pm

robbie is turning into groundzilla...

70 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:22 pm

Nice ab, Swish.

71 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:22 pm

Now that's what we could use some more of. More Nick Swisher.

72 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:23 pm

nice AB, Swish!

73 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:23 pm

Frankie and Brett both look to have cooled off.

74 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:23 pm

frack - shit sox & rays both up a run...

75 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:24 pm

[68] Was it a HBP?

76 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:25 pm

God I hate TWC's shitty DVR box. I paused it at 7:20 then turn it on at 7:50 and lo and behold it suddenly erased all the paused material, two innings down the tubes!

Pelfrey's pitching like a guy with a chip on his shoulder.

77 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:26 pm

Hm. A pro-My Little Pony ad during an all-New York game? Bizarre.

78 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:28 pm

Pathetically, I keep looking for that pitch count ...

79 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:28 pm

[76] Then he should really learn to use a napkin...

80 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:29 pm

[80] Booooo!

; )

81 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:29 pm

[78]

69 pitches now

82 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:30 pm

[80] Boooo yourself! Oh wait... >;)

83 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:30 pm

[80] Wow, you have a self-esteem problem or something?
That's not a paradox, is it? To boo yourself?

84 rbj   ~  May 22, 2010 8:30 pm

[75] No, looks like it was a single. The team had only one hit, Curtis 0-4

Oh, how's this for bad managing, it's only the 11th in Minnesota and the Brewers are using tomorrow's scheduled starter. Way to burn your pen.

85 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:31 pm

Hey, Pop K K this time.
Chyll, your thoughts?

86 cult of basebaal   ~  May 22, 2010 8:32 pm

I hate FOX games. I *especially* hate FOX games that I can't even watch.

Gah.

87 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 8:34 pm

[85] Rewinding Pop? No thanks, I'll stick to the jazz channel...

[84] Brewer's manager, please ref to [80], have a nice next two games...

88 cult of basebaal   ~  May 22, 2010 8:35 pm

Another pitcher at bat safely out of the way ...

89 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:35 pm

He looks like a crybaby.

90 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:37 pm

why hasn't winn stolen 3rd yet?

91 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:38 pm

"A habitual liar?"
The pitching coach said that?

92 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:38 pm

[84] hopefully Willie is in line for his next managerial job...

93 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:38 pm

John Maine seems like a little bitch.

94 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:39 pm

Oh, Derek.

You're killing us!

95 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:40 pm

In 9th inning, with 2nd and 3rd, tied at 7 with 1 out, Gardenhire sent up Thome to PH for his SS. He was IBBed, and then Gardenhire PR for Thome! And then used yet another person to play SS in the 10th .... Umm ... huh?

96 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:40 pm

Here we go, Brett, this is your cue. IF hit please.

97 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:40 pm

[82] Definitely not a paradox. I don't think booing while boing is really booing actually. It's more like saying "Yay"

98 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:41 pm

I mean boing not boing

99 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:41 pm

[97]

Booing is the new cheering ...

100 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:41 pm

[95] You are questioning genius, Diane.

Now that's definitely a paradox.

103 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 22, 2010 8:42 pm

[98] Boing Not Boing...wasn't that an 80s band?

104 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:43 pm

Can we move ol' Brett out of the GODDAMN two hole? Please?

105 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:43 pm

[102] It really depends how you spell it.

106 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:44 pm

Booing Oingo Boingo while on a Boeing?

107 thelarmis   ~  May 22, 2010 8:44 pm

we're being shutout.

boston's throwing a no-hitter.

rays are threatening.

i've gotta go play backbeats now...

GO YANKS!!!

108 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:45 pm

[103] Yes, it Was.
Or maybe a 747.

109 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 8:47 pm

Dear Joe Buck //// check Tampa's strength of schedule so far ...

110 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 22, 2010 8:48 pm

113 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:49 pm

[104] In favor of Swish?

Oh, Phil. Luis Castillo.
Luis Castillo.

115 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:51 pm

What the hell is this, Jason Bay Day?

118 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:54 pm

Huh, someone finally went for the Hughes-Cervelli special.

119 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:54 pm

Pitch around Wright.

120 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:54 pm

Ooh, fabulous first pitch strike.

121 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 8:54 pm

[112] Thanks, though I wish I didn't want to know. You know?

122 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:55 pm

Just went right after him.

123 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:56 pm

Got him!

124 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:56 pm

[119] Good call, Ron Gardenhire.

125 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 8:57 pm

The Red Sox have blown the game open.

I wonder if they'll let us borrow Dice-K for the World Series.

126 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 8:59 pm

Come on, Mark, swing the baseball bat!

127 cult of basebaal   ~  May 22, 2010 9:01 pm

This game is driving me to drink ... heavily.

128 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 9:03 pm

[127] Saturday night, though, so you should feel free.
I'm going to go pour a bourbon right now.

129 Chyll Will   ~  May 22, 2010 9:04 pm

[127] Then you should really consider a Clincher Softball [41]...

I smell some bullpen meat.

131 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:07 pm

[127] [128] All right, peer pressure. I'll pour a scotch.

132 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:08 pm

All right, Frankie, find that old magic!

133 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 9:09 pm

Okay, cult's drinking program is working so far.
Somebody else jump in, we need another hit.

134 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 9:09 pm

[131] single malt or blended?

135 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 9:09 pm

you rang?

136 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:09 pm

All right, that's something.

[142] Uh oh. You said "Scotch".
The Scots do not like it when you call Irish "Scotch". Let's just hope there aren't any around.

Well, likely the last inning for Phil, let's go out in style!

[145] I am back. Scotch is whiskey done the correct way, and is always single malt (we do not speak of the "b" word.

Nice leather, Winn...

Randy Winn..nice major league career, great guy, eminently pun-able last name...and time to move on to a new phase of life...

Hurry, Grandy
We're tired of Randy
And to back up Andy
We want someone handy.

The last line sucks, but I couldn't think of anything else.

162 RIYank   ~  May 22, 2010 9:23 pm

[159] Very nice word. And more or less in common to all the Gaels, so everyone's happy.

163 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:24 pm

Nice pitch, Phil.

[161] Okay. Scansion leaves something to be desired.

Thank god for Francoeur.

176 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 9:31 pm

Can't believe they gave Pagan a double for that ... Not cool for our boy Phil. Nonetheless, he did not pitch very well for the second straight game. If he doesn't pick it up the next time out, I declare the era of Dominant Phil over.

177 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:31 pm

I'll give the umpire credit...those two close pitches have been called balls all night.

189 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:41 pm

Come on, Brett. Let's get back in the grove.

190 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 9:42 pm

[186] don't worry. Juan Castro is gonna slap a single this inning.

191 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:42 pm

Shit.
He's lost that line drive stroke.
Lots of choppers lately.

192 cult of basebaal   ~  May 22, 2010 9:43 pm

Teix is KILLING me with this May ...

193 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 9:44 pm

holy shit. he's been no-hitting the phils with papi playing 1B. I don't know why, but that seems kinda shocking to me.

194 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 9:45 pm

Honestly, I've come to accept and even have some faith in Gardner, but I wish they'd quit batting him second.

195 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:46 pm

Of course.

196 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:46 pm

[192] He needs to start being dangerous.
When does that get to happen?

197 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 9:46 pm

in steps Juan Castro.... let's see if I called it right.

198 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 9:47 pm

I don't like the looks of Teixeira. I hope he can truly get it going again ... soon.

203 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 9:51 pm

Beltre steals a hit in the bottom of the 8th by spearing a line drive ticketed to left, then doubles off Ibanez, who'd walked. 2 outs.

204 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 9:52 pm

...and then Castro singles to end it after 7.2 innings.

205 cult of basebaal   ~  May 22, 2010 9:53 pm

More bad umpiring, lovely, just lovely.

206 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 9:53 pm

[201] Vodka for me tonight.

208 rbj   ~  May 22, 2010 9:55 pm

Oh, and don't know who's seen this at Pinto's site:

"I Guess the Rule was Written After 1971

Via Deadspin, The Fleer Sticker Project finds footage of Don Buford running across the mound in front of Dock Ellis during the 1971 World Series.

There wasn’t a single word mentioned about this being an unwritten rule and nobody seemed to take offense to it.

Of course, it’s quite possible Dock Ellis was actually in a different dimension at the time."

http://baseballmusings.com/?p=51630

In front of the pitcher.

209 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 9:55 pm

Interesting that the single to break up Dice-K's no-no was a little flare to shallow left, the type of play Jeter usually makes in his sleep, but Scutaro wasn't tall enough.

210 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 9:57 pm

[206] Christ, is he still pitching? All I need now is to see his clownish histrionics.

Beside last night, the Yankees have given up a lot of runs lately

216 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 10:01 pm

[213] bah! that's the problem I created by listening to the Yanks while watching the gameday of the BOS-PHI game.

[209] would you call it a "slap" single? Cause that's how I saw it in my dreams 20 comments ago...

FUUUUUUUUUCK! what the hell is going on here with these Mutts?

217 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 10:01 pm

Brett's good out there.

218 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:01 pm

Hey someone want to explain why the Yankees can't score runs all of a sudden?

219 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 10:02 pm

[215] Haven't scored too many, either, except, as has been noted, during garbage time.

220 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 10:02 pm

[209] It had some hang time, but we've seen Jeter make that play all the time, where he backtracks and catches it in front of the left fielder.

Another appearance, another run scored against CHP.

221 rbj   ~  May 22, 2010 10:03 pm

250 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:20 pm

[223] Sounds about right. Here's hoping the trend is reversed right now, with Derek ... Jetahhhh

[249] Too true

252 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:20 pm

I'm glad he didn't swing at that.

253 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:22 pm

Sheeeit. The way Jeter's swinging the bat lately, a productive out would be welcome. Especially with 2 strikes

254 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 10:22 pm

2-2.

255 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:23 pm

258 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 10:23 pm

Man I hate seeing Gardner up in this spot.

Banging that drum, sorry!

260 Eirias   ~  May 22, 2010 10:25 pm

[259] I actually like seeing Gardner up there.

261 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:25 pm

[257] LOL

262 Eirias   ~  May 22, 2010 10:25 pm

He isn't as good as he's been. Or something. But he makes contact.

263 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 10:26 pm

Damn it.
That was his pitch.
All right, hang in, Brett, hang in...

264 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  May 22, 2010 10:26 pm

[259] See? Contact...

267 seamus   ~  May 22, 2010 10:27 pm

Brett's slumping right now.

268 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:27 pm

Gardner needs to go back lower in the lineup. I don't see the point of having him hit second, I really don't.

269 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 10:28 pm

At the very least, K-Rod will have to work through the meat of the lineup in the 9th, probably rendering him unavailable tomorrow. Then again, the way Manuel uses his bullpen, he may throw him out there again.

270 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 10:28 pm

[261] yeah. I guess that was kinda weird. the radio feed on my iphone via mlb app lags like 60 seconds. But the gameday display updates quick. So I saw:

Pitch 5 In play, run(s) (78.5 mph Changeup)

and then I got excited before it 'splained fielder's choice.

271 cult of basebaal   ~  May 22, 2010 10:33 pm

Those 2 runs we gave away in the 6th and 7th sure look big now ...

Thanks Jose!

272 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 10:34 pm

Just in case the pitcher's spot comes up in the 9th, who do we have left?

273 Diane Firstman   ~  May 22, 2010 10:35 pm

274 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 10:35 pm

ah well ...

298 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:48 pm

[291] Exactly. The weight of the game should not be resting on the shoulders of Francisco Cervelli.

299 The Hawk   ~  May 22, 2010 10:50 pm

Well this sets up tomorrow nicely. Sabathia v Santana for the series win. Santana's historically better but on a good day Sabathia can match anyone. Too bad I'll miss most if not all of it.

300 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 10:51 pm

The top 3 in this lineup are all scuffling, and it's killing the Yankees. A-Rod and Cano come up having to start rallies rather than driving them in.

301 JeremyM   ~  May 22, 2010 10:55 pm

If A-Rod put together a stretch like Teixeira has, it would be beyond ugly. A slump is one thing, but he is completely useless with the bat for long stretches.

302 mjpucci   ~  May 22, 2010 10:56 pm

[299] Santana career is just 4-2 with a 4.40 ERA against the Yanks all-time, and he got rocked last year.

Sabathia against the Mets: 2-0, 1.20 in a much smaller sample size.

303 NYYfan22   ~  May 22, 2010 10:58 pm

[302] except that nothing has worked out the way it's supposed to on paper thus far...

304 The Hawk   ~  May 23, 2010 12:34 am

[302] Yeah what's his ERA minus that terrible game last year ... That must skew things a bit.
