Yanks look to rebound today.
Git ’em boys, c’mon now!
Great AB for Jeter.
Terrible base running for Jeter.
Don't you just hate the baseball players who hate to play baseball.
I'll take that.
Eat it, laptop.
Just you and me vs. Red Sox Nation, rbj.
 It's an unfair fight RIYank, we'll crush them.
Tim McCarver giving baserunning instructions to Curtis Granderson. Now I've heard everything.
 He was going to be out whether he looked back or not, it was all about the great throw by Youk there. Great at-bats by Cano and Chavez, sounds almost like a new dictatorship duo taking over.
I'll be. You don't see that often.
Nice play, Jeet, but I'm still seething about that f'ing bunt yesterday. Stop that shit.
Well, he's plainly out, it's obvious.
Buck and McCarver. Brutal. I swear I miss Joe Morgan.
Just checked to see if I could get a NESN feed, but they have hockey.
16) Miss Joe? Say it ain't so...hey, you could always put on John and Suyzan.
 Not for those of us outside the greater NY area.
Can I join in?
Gotta say  I think Timmy was right.
He would have been out anyway, but if the play was closer, turning his head twice definitely cost a few fractions of a second.
(Yes, even a broken asshole is right twice a day).
Leaving a bunch of opportunities on the bases so far.
I can get John and Suzyn, but it's out of sync with the vid so I never do that.
WE CARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!
This Pedroia slurping is getting annoying.
Nova is a pretty good pitcher. He's not going to be great, but he has good control and he doesn't make many big mistakes.
Youk is swinging like shit right now.
22) He has pretty good poise, and no lack of confidence.
way to hang in there, Curtis.
Nice ab for CG.
Great ab for Chavez.
Pig n a poke, BITCH
I'm really liking this Martin guy.
Smart move, Cashman.
F. yes. Russell Martin and Eric Chavez, who would have guessed?
Listening to the radio, watching gameday, reading your comments...things look pretty good.
the old man with a hard single!
I love that the RS only have one pitching outing where their starter actually pitched well.
I haven't seen every AB, but I've only seen ONE ball that Jeter has hit it the air.... the liner to RF that was caught. He looks like shit. It's gonna be a long 4 years.
 Jesus H. Christ he just got a hit, even that's bad?
Argh, Alex tied up on a 2-0 cutter.
I'm calling double here.
then looks at a fastball over the plate, 2-2. Then takes a breaking ball high, 3-2...
Ok, off by one.
Ripped it, to the right of the SS, Lowrie. Man, he's locked in.
EFF YOU, CLAY!!!!
Aw, you should have left Clay in.
Gee... I feel badly for Laptops.
 Dude.... even a broken clock....
He's got 5 groundball singles and 1 groundball double this year, and slugging .269. Have you seen anything that would indicate he will even OPS .700?
Afternoon all, back from a stuffing of dim sum, glad to see the score at 5-1.
Now, if Nova can just get through his usual mid-innings nexus of suck, we ought to win this going away ...
 And how much would that change if he was two hit two doubles off the wall? It's such a small sample size that it's too hard to make any kind of confirmation that he's toast, but I'll leave you to speculate.
If he ends up sucking then I expect the "brain-trust" has a backup plan, I doubt they do.
Jeter should have taken that himself... it's a much easier throw to 1st.
C'mon Nova, wiggle off the hook here.
Mother fucking fucker.
All that cause Robbie couldn't throw to first
Not a great inning, dammit.
The Grandy Man can.
Omg, now Sterling "sings" "The Grandy Man can, ohh, the Grandy Man can."
Chavez is three for three - Cashman know how to shop a garage sale.
 Cashman know how to shop a garage sale.
Kei Igawa agrees.
 You chose to listen to the Wald-ling, you get what deserve ...
I'm listening to the game on WEEI (fucking FOX games, I can't watch the game even though I'm on the West Coast and the FOX game won't start for another hour out here).
 They can't all be gems... Igawa was a little pricey for a garage sale.
 What choice do I have???
Terrible start by Nova.
Heyman just tweeted that the Yanks have signed Carlos Silva. Who is next? Rudy May?
What was Lowrie looking for?
 THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF SNACKS PONTOON!!!
Man, Mattpat11 would totally Cronenberg when he got *that* news ...
What a play by Dusty.
Damn, just got under it.
Just once in my life I would like to hit a ball that well that far.
Sounds like McCarver will join in the Manny lovesfest. Not.
Yup, excellent call Brian.
Wow, Martin is something else!
If you hate voting for the HoF, stop voting for the HoF. Douchebag!!!
Anyone warming up for bottom of seventh?
Heh, Red Sox fans over at BBTF are bitching about why Epstein didn't sign Martin in the off season, which is pretty amusing. But someone posted this, which I thought was pretty cool.
Russell Martin did the most impressive thing I've ever seen last year at Fenway. He threw a ball from the track in front of the Pesky Pole, flat footed, to 2 people in the front row of the Monster seats who were yelling for a ball, during BP. I was shocked at how much arm strength he had. Completely insane.
Jeter looks even more lost this year than last. Doesn't bode well.
Like Joba being aggressive. Don't walk Youk, now...
Man, Youk is in a slump.
Joba's first pitch to Youklis - 96mph.
Nice job, Joba!
Pair of mean 3-2 sliders from Joba there. Nice job, bro.
No hits for Sox since Nova, yes?
 Yup, goose eggs from David & Joba
But, but ... Soriano's TEH 8TH INNING GUY!!!
 Oh, good, Soriano's up now.
Yankees need to dump this guy fast. What's the story on Feliciano?
 He got out of it.
 Doctors pushed the start of his return to throwing back. At least a couple of weeks out.
2 hits over four innings of scoreless relief... the 'pen is mightier than the Sox.
Nova's going to have to go more than 4+ innings if he's going to move up in the rotation.
Nova’s going to have to go more than 4+ innings if he’s going to move up in the rotation.
err, that should read ... stay ... in the rotation.
Anyways, nice game, other than Nova's start.
Laila tov to all, nice to hit the sack after a win.
A nice 'break':
"The good news for him [Tsuyoshi Nishioka] and his new team was that their heralded acquisition and Japanese batting champion doesn't need a cast or surgery on the fibula he fractured in New York from a double-play takeout slide by Yankees slugger Nick Swisher."
Nova is still young (24) and I suspect his later innings fade to due to fatigue. I don't think his stamia is where it needs to be. But everything else looks pretty good.
Magic number is 151 to eliminate the Red Sux.
 Wow, Swish is a "slugger?"
 One thing I enjoy about getting to games early is watching the players long toss.
