"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Onward, Ha!

If A.J. Burnett gets lit up again tonight it will come as no surprise. If he pitches reasonably well, nothing shocking. In fact, the only thing that would turn heads lies behind Door Number Three, if he pitches well, and not only that, but deep into the game. He’s won just one game in his last ten starts so the odds are against him. But let’s go against the grain, go beyond hope, and dream a little dream.

Get at of your head, Numbnuts and go git ‘em.

Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Andruw Jones LF
Jesus Montero DH
Russell Martin C
Eduardo Nunez 3B

Chuck and Duck (ahem, Scott Proctor is back) and Let’s Go Yank-ees!

3 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:07 pm

4 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:19 pm

6 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:21 pm

Omg.

Robbie, watch it!

7 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:21 pm

Whoo-hoo. The 'ol swim move.

8 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:21 pm

(I fucking love this Robinson Cano, btw.)

9 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:21 pm

Cano would hit 50 doubles a year if he played in Fenway, what a swing!

10 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:21 pm

Yay and phew, Robbie!

11 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:22 pm

[9] He's the real thing.

12 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:23 pm

That's the only run AJ is going to need.

13 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:23 pm

Can't let Lester off the hook here, got to plate those two..

14 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:24 pm

Atta boy, Swish, hang in...nice and easy...

15 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:24 pm

That's it, Swish, just put the motherfucker in play...

16 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:25 pm

Good swing!

17 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:26 pm

Swisher's ability to go 3-2 is just incredible.

18 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:27 pm

[17] It is.

19 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:27 pm

Ahhhh, fuck.

20 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:27 pm

Fuck a duck!

21 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:29 pm

It's going to be up to the kid...

22 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:29 pm

30+ pitches for Lester..got to get those runs in too though!! Cmon Andruw!

23 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:29 pm

Shut up, fuckwad.

24 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:31 pm

Damn, Swisher and Andruw both swung at ball four..

25 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:31 pm

Just don't stand there and stare at Uncle Charlie on 3-2.

26 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:33 pm

Jesus on deck..I'm a junior high school girl, week in the knees..

27 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:33 pm

Let's go, kid!

28 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:33 pm

Oh, boy! Here we go.
Let's go, Jesus!

29 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:34 pm

Luis Sojo's compatriot.

30 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:36 pm

No pressure kid

31 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:36 pm

Good eye, kid.

32 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:36 pm

Good eye!

33 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:36 pm

Good cut, good cut...

34 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:36 pm

A bases loaded walk would be really nice.

35 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:37 pm

Rats!

36 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:37 pm

Welcome to the majors, Jesus..that savior act may work out in Springfield, but this is Captial City!

37 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:37 pm

Oh well.

Least we made him work.

38 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:49 pm

Hey, one inning in the books for AJ!

39 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:54 pm

Stupd BR facts of the night. Sorry. Wins and losses. Everyone's most hated stats. : )
This is the 9th time AJ has thrown with Alfonso Marquez behind the plate. He is 3-4. This ranks 2nd only to Jim Wolf and 10. He has pitched with 88 different home plate umps. His best record AND most wins are with Ed Rapuano at 5-1. He is 1-5 with Rob Drake.
Hey, look. It's Ugly!

40 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:56 pm

Gotta fucking capitalize on the breaks, man.

41 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:56 pm

HO!

What a break!

42 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:57 pm

Let's go Mark.

43 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:57 pm

Double steal. Fucking something.

44 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:58 pm

Mark You fucking FAIL, a hole.

45 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:59 pm

Jesus, another fucking popup.

46 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:59 pm

Crud!

47 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 7:59 pm

Teix has the goddamn yips! What's that 4 mile high infield pops in 2 days. Bollocks!

48 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:00 pm

He looked over-eager. Work the count, brah!

49 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:01 pm

Shitty job in both innings. This isn't a recipe for winning with this shithead on the mound.

50 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:02 pm

I refused to get sucked in today. I must not have hope. I must not believe. I must go to work. I...ah, heck, just one more inning.

51 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:02 pm

Here we go with the lead off walk, watch...

52 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:02 pm

They should name a new product at Good Humor...the Tex Pop.

He is really frustrating to watch lately (but not on the field).

53 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:03 pm

Don't fall behind 3-1, shitbag!

54 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:06 pm

Stop fraternizing, Derek.

55 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:08 pm

AJ/two scoreless innings. September Song.

56 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:09 pm

[54] I wonder if anyone on the Yankees actually hates Papi? At least Joba knew enough to take out Youkilis..

57 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:13 pm

[56] Papi is the Latin Toastmaster of baseball. He thinks everyone loves him. He disgusts me, spitting into his batting gloves before every pitch.

58 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:15 pm

Fuck, just missed.

59 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:16 pm

[57] Not to mention standing and looking at his home runs. Just run the bases. Act like you've done it before and are going to do it again. A bit of enthusiasm is fine if you don't do it on a regular basis.

60 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:16 pm

[57] But if you listen to him talk, he's a pea brain...at least in English. The dude is dim.

61 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:18 pm

If Montero hits a HR, does John Sterling say, Jesus Rises Again?

62 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:19 pm

Good swing, kid.

63 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:19 pm

Fuck big papi.

64 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:20 pm

Nerts. Wonder if Montero would have some Doobie Brothers as his walk up music.

65 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:20 pm

YOU SUCK JESUS!

LAST TIME I SACRIFICE A CHICKEN TO YOU!!!

66 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:20 pm

[60] Most non-Mussina ballplayers are a bit thick though, aren't they?

Lester is off today and they are not taking advantage..

67 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:20 pm

[61] And in the third inning, He rose again! Jesus launches one into the celestial spheres! Jesus Christ, you can hit, Jesus!

68 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:21 pm

[67] Hilarious!

69 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:25 pm

[68] Boat, AJ is looking sharp..I may have to get the natto and One Cup sake ready...

70 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:26 pm

[67] Excellent!

[66] Nova, even with his broken English makes salient points in interviews. Granderson seems pretty smart, as does Martin. I would say that Damon was the dimmest of all.

71 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:27 pm

[64] I'd go with Norma Greenbaum.

72 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:27 pm

AJ's motion is so fluid, stuff still nasty..I don't get it.
[70] Yeah, my comment was unfair, hard to get past the clice-speak with these guys to know if they gots brains or not.

73 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:28 pm

[68] And of course, if he jacks one on Friday, "Ohhh, Good Friday came early this year, Jesus nails one, and I don't mean to the Cross!!"

74 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:29 pm

Millar has a mic in the Red Sox broadcast and he's very funny. He is calling Franconna "Ben Franklin" and he just held a $100 bill and showed it to the dugout.

75 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:29 pm

We have all seen this movie before.

76 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:31 pm

[71] "Jesus is just alright with me"

77 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:32 pm

Lester is going to wind up going 6+ which is a bullshit after his 1st inning.
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...........

78 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:33 pm

[70] Agreed. And Tex seems to have a good head on his shoulders. I like hit Hart Schaffner and Marx radio spot. He actually does a nice job with the V/O.

79 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:33 pm

[76] bingo.

80 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:33 pm

[72] Shhh, don't jinx A Burnt Jet.

What is clice-speak?

81 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:37 pm

Ok, it's time to bust out.

82 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:37 pm

[80] I think he meant "cliché".

83 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:41 pm

[76,79] I got a friend in Jesus.

84 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:43 pm

Here we go...

85 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:45 pm

"SOMETIMES" he unravels, Kay? How about "Always"?

86 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:45 pm

tickticktickticktickticktickticktickticktickticktickticktickticktick

87 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:46 pm

What's with this strike zone?

88 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:47 pm

boom

89 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:47 pm

*sigh*

90 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:47 pm

AJ, you are an asshole. An asshole.

91 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:48 pm

And there's your ballgame, folks.

92 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:48 pm

Don't fucking fall behind all the time you intolerable sack of suck.

93 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:48 pm

Actually Suzyn, sometimes you CAN predict baseball!

94 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:48 pm

[83] For a Seventies stoner band, they knew their religion. So did The Band.

Ah, the A.J. Shit the bed inning.

95 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:48 pm

Who do I hate more? AJ or My Little Pony?

96 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:48 pm

[90] And fuck our offense, too.

97 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:48 pm

[93] Hahahhahahahaha!!!!

98 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:49 pm

Such a dumb fucking pitch.

99 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:50 pm

Nice hustle, Fat Man.

100 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:51 pm

It's not even upsetting anymore, they are just the better team. Maybe I don't understand the advanced stats but if your team goes 3-12 against your main rival..how can you be considered "equals"?

Show/Hide Comments 101-200
101 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:52 pm

[90] But tonight, really, he deserves more run support. The offense is not doing it's part.

102 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:52 pm

Did anyone see the Jason Bay for AJ trade idea in one of the NY rags last week or so? Both have 2 years left and about the same money. Makes sense to me.

103 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:53 pm

uh...its...

104 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:54 pm

Wow!

Good work, AJ!

105 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:57 pm

Actually, nice job by AJ not to implode.

106 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 8:58 pm

Bust of a series for Mark so far.

107 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:00 pm

At least someone's hitting.

108 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:00 pm

Someone wore his hittin' shoes. Damn is he something!

109 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:00 pm

Cano's swing is a thing of beauty.
Swish, please don't bunt!!!

110 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:01 pm

Out of all of my comments tonight the last one is in moderation. Whaaaa?

111 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:01 pm

What. The. Fuck!

112 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:01 pm

Well in the name of God's Green Earth are you FUCKING DOING?

113 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:01 pm

Wtf?

114 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:02 pm

WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT??!!!

115 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:02 pm

Inconceivable! Guy is hot. Has 21 HRs. Someone please "splain that to me.

116 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:04 pm

109) There are a host of words that trip up SPAM and "shoes" happens to be one of them. That's why it was caught.

117 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:04 pm

I'll explain it to you, Swisher had his head in his ass.

118 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:04 pm

Brain cramp. We all have them. But bad timing to have one.

119 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:06 pm

C'mon, KID

120 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:06 pm

It's time for a miracle.

121 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:07 pm

Tough, 1-0 pitch.

122 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:07 pm

FUCK, that was the pitch. Now Lester's got him.

123 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:08 pm

[117] Gotcha. Weird. Somewhere Joe Jackson is rolling in his grave.
C'mon, Kid!

124 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:08 pm

Wow, fastball. I'm convinced he's going back to bury something low and in.

125 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:08 pm

Thanks, Nick.

126 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:09 pm

Not smiling now are you, Nick?

127 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:09 pm

Grumble.

128 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:09 pm

Bleh.

And *that's* why I'm an atheist ...

129 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:09 pm

That's on you Swish you flakeshow. What a waste.

130 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:09 pm

Can Burnett get six more outs without screwin' the pooch? If he does, Yanks are winning this shit.

131 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:10 pm

I had to step out, did Swish actually bunt?

132 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:11 pm

I see Rudy's here with his granddaughter.

133 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:12 pm

I have to remind myself, all I wanted from this game was for AJ to hit two batters before he was removed/ejected.

134 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:12 pm

1 down

135 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:13 pm

131) Yeah, he bunted. I'm guessing he thought there was no outs when there was one.

136 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:14 pm

Breath through your eyelids, Meat.

137 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:14 pm

[132] Good god..what else can happen next then?

138 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:15 pm

[135] I hate the bunt with the runner on first, let alone second.

139 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:16 pm

So close to being great. Got to get the out.

140 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:16 pm

Well, we love Tex for his glove, not his bat. Wait, what?

141 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:17 pm

Don't worry about the runner, AJ. Get the guy in the effin' box.

142 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:18 pm

That was a strike for godsakes!

143 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:18 pm

Time to hold your breath.

144 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:19 pm

NICE!

145 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:20 pm

At least Swish didn't fall down rounding third missing out on an inside the parker.

Don't want to do it, but I've got to root against The Vulture here.

147 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:23 pm

There you go, Russ. LET'S GO.

Hey, Nunie, be smart. Don't suck.

148 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:24 pm

GOT TO BE kidding me.

149 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:24 pm

WHoo-hoo. Double play.

150 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:24 pm

[145] That is a funny video.
Hey 5 innings of two run ball from A.J., I'll take it

151 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:26 pm

Man, this is a frustrating night, worse than AJ getting pounded. Ditto last night. Games that are winnable they are finding ways not to capitalize. Now, AJ is in his danger zone. He must hold it together. Just 3 more outs.

152 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:27 pm

Hey Hey, it's a "Fallacy of the pre-determined outcome" sighting!

153 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:28 pm

[151] Nope, AJ's going 6 more ... AND he's getting the win.

Just the way it's gonna be.

154 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:29 pm

Hey Mark, you've done exactly JACK BOIL SCRATCH in this series. Redemption time, Papi.

155 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:29 pm

152) Yeah, someone should be careful teaching Mike the fancy terms, cause he drives them into the ground.

156 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:29 pm

Montero will win the game with an RBI shot off the Green Monster.

157 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:30 pm

Ouch.

158 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:30 pm

Ouch. Even that one popped straight up.

159 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:30 pm

Well, better than a popout ...

160 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:31 pm

Fuck the Sox, really. What's the current ratio of Sox:Yankees hit? As soon as AJ loses it, I want to see him pitching way up and in.

Yes, I'm mad.

161 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:31 pm

Got to have a good AB, now, Robbie. No excuses now.

162 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:32 pm

Stay hot, Robbie. For love of all who banter. Please!

163 rbj   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:32 pm

Fuck Hit the Shit Sox

164 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:32 pm

I'm calling SLASHER off the monster ...

Misery thy name is us.

167 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:33 pm

[164] FUCK. Well, I called the SLASHER part.

URGE.

TO.

KILL.

RISING.

168 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:33 pm

See, this is where Boston is playing lucky. That was a bullet.

169 randym77   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:33 pm

Lotta LOB tonight.

170 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:34 pm

How many have they left on now, 10, 15?

183 Just Fair   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:44 pm

One bad pitch from AJ. But when you are behind 99% of the time that shit is going to bite you in the ass. Bollocks! Time for a 2 run triple from Crawford.

184 Marek   ~  Sep 1, 2011 9:45 pm

Not a great start, not even really good, but better than mediocre.

At some point the Yankees HAVE to hit someone on the Sox..this is ridiculous.

215 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 10:11 pm

[214] Uh, because?

That pitch A) barely hit Jesus and B) 100% wasn't intentional.

216 randym77   ~  Sep 1, 2011 10:11 pm

[208] The Royals have a huge catcher. Salvador Perez, or something like that? I saw him in spring training, and on his knees, he was as tall as some of the shorter players, I swear. He's listed as 6'-3", but I think that was when he was signed at 17. He's gotta be bigger than that now.

217 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 1, 2011 10:13 pm

[215] At least pitch them off the plate then? How many times have we seen Yankees get hit at risk of serious injury?

Oh no it's DBard..

218 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 10:13 pm

I don't really give a crap about whether The Jesus can catch, I just want him to mash like the unholy love-child of Edgar Martinez and Frank Thomas.

Position be damned.

219 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 1, 2011 10:14 pm

[217] Jesus had to be told to go to 1st, that's how hard it hit him.

[341] [342] You think this is bad, wait until October if its another Yanks-Sox ALCS.

Praise be to Mo - I still can't believe I finally got to see Montero in the bigs with the Yanks. Not a fantastic start, but I'm sure he'll do better next game.

I hope the Yanks don't see that toilet bowl of a "park" until 2012.

Nice, 2 wins in Boston. Take that anytime.

Mo was squeezed, but he did give up two walks, and got the benefit of the call on the final strike to AGon.

Love Russell Martin! AJ moved the needle towards the positive (but he has a long way to go). Swish really fucked up, and I'm sure he will be heavily penalized in kangaroo court.

Three long games, exciting baseball for those who love it, no so much for the casual fans.
