Kuroda has pitched at least eight innings in each of his last four starts. The last Yankees starter with a longer streak was David Cone (five straight in 1998).

Cool stat, but I'm surprised it hasn't been broken sooner by C.C.

2 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 5, 2012 4:36 pm

I might've put Alex fifth or something so he could at least get his swing back up to speed. Putting him right back in the four spot as if nothing happened the last six weeks? I'm definitely not a good manager.

3 Start Spreading the News   ~  Sep 5, 2012 5:09 pm

Why is Russell Martin hitting 5th. Takes the bat out of Arod's hands. I am definitely not a good manager!

4 monkeypants   ~  Sep 5, 2012 5:18 pm

[3] Why is Russell Martin hitting 5th.

5 monkeypants   ~  Sep 5, 2012 5:22 pm

[3]

Why is Russell Martin hitting fifth even on the roster, given how little he's done over the last few seasons except for April and August 2011?

6 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:02 pm

Oh my God, Steve Pearce is back

7 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:05 pm

[5] LoHud has all the ugly numbers, but here's what Martin has done over the last week:
Russell Martin: 13 at-bats - .308/.400/.385

http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2012/09/05/rough-week/

It is brutal the way the bats have gone cold.

8 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:12 pm

15 hits from Willie

9 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:13 pm

Hadn't seen that in a while it seems like.

10 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:17 pm

And they go down meekly.

11 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:21 pm

Sam Fuld catching balls at the home run derby with the kids is still one of the most sad things I've ever seen.

12 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:21 pm

[7] Wait, really?? That's way, way better than I would have thought.

13 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:22 pm

The Orioles have taken the lead.

14 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:23 pm

Yeah, hm, see, Maddon kind of sucks, too.

15 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:29 pm

[12] And Swish Is .091. Looks like they switched bats.

16 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:30 pm

Look... Martin is what he is, and he's on our roster.
He has the same WAR as the TB Catcher, and his OPS is 90 pts better.
Do we have to gasp in surprise every time he's in the lineup?

17 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:38 pm

This is painful to watch

18 monkeypants   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:38 pm

[16] No, I no longer gasp in surprise. I was surprised that they kept him around after last season, but I'm no longer surprised. And we'll always have those sweet, sweet memories of last April.

19 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:39 pm

[16] Its a situation where we have three bad options and you might as well go for the guy who's at least had something of a career.

Nice inning guys, BTW.

20 monkeypants   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:39 pm

[8] The best (only?) reason to watch these days, no?

21 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:45 pm

This is just an awful team

22 monkeypants   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:46 pm

Regarding nothing in particular, I saw this hugget at riveraveblues:

Via Scott Miller, there is “increasing momentum” to change the September roster expansion rules as soon as next year. Teams can currently deploy their entire 40-man roster in the season’s final month, but the new scenario would limit clubs to a designated 30-man roster for each game.

I for one think this would be a vast improvement. But then again, I've always thought the current September call-ups rules were goofy.

23 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:47 pm

[22] If you're going to do that, just do a 25 man roster for each game.

24 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:48 pm

God, Maddon is really not good.
I take it all back.

25 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:49 pm

And God help me, if we lose the division because of Sam Fuld.

26 monkeypants   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:49 pm

[23] I agree, entirely. But it would be a step in the right direction. Ultimately, I think that MLB will end up expanding rosters for the entire season, even if it's like the NFL, where teams will have a27 or 30 man roster roster and then only suit up 25 players each day. The owners won;t like paying more in salary, but in th eend the fetish with having as many pitchers as possible will win out.

27 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:50 pm

[22] I agree, but that particular change won't make any significant difference. Teams will leave four starters off their 30-man roster, so they'll still have twenty slots for relief pitchers and bench players.

28 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:50 pm

25) LOL.

29 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:51 pm

Good job, Hiroki!

30 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:51 pm

Nice recovery.

31 monkeypants   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:52 pm

[27] Hm, interesting...I hadn't thought of that. You'd make a good earl Weaver!

32 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:56 pm

[27] The article I read said they wouldn't allow teams to deactivate starters for games.

33 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:58 pm

[32] If they can make that stick, it will help. A little. Still, 16 slots for relievers and bench players.

I guess the point isn't to stop Bullpen Rouxlette, but to prevent the games from turning into spring training games.

34 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:59 pm

This is non competitive

35 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 6:59 pm

What's the point of watching? Kuroda's is going to allow 3 runs or less and the Yanks aren't going to score for him. Broken record.

36 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:01 pm

Why are Jones, Nix, Pearce and Martin in the same line up? Why don't we just forfeit?

37 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:02 pm

Come on, Lou, we're gonna wait for Steve Pearce or Jayson Nix to hit a three run homer.

38 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:03 pm

[36] You know the answer.

39 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:05 pm

This is the first time I've heard Lou in the booth. Not sweet. In fact, my stomach is starting to sour.

40 randym77   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:05 pm

[32] Yeah, they've already thought of that.

The point of using the Aug. 31 rosters as a base? Simple: Each club would be required to keep its five-man rotation eligible every day in September, rather than de-activating the four starters not pitching on a particular night in order to add four more relievers.

41 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:08 pm

[40] Oh, hm, not bad. Anyone on your 8/31 roster would have to be one of the thirty?
Okay, so that actually does seem like a significant improvement.

42 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:09 pm

Wow. Pinella is awful. Makes me long for Joe Morgan.

43 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:11 pm

[36] If you have to ask, you're definitely not a good manager.

44 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:11 pm

Okay, okay, I'll keep watching too.

This must be how Fans of Other Teams feel.

45 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:13 pm

C'mon GUYS!

46 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:13 pm

Your pitch, here, Robbie, wait for yours...

47 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:14 pm

Now, Alex. Sir. No double play here, Homey. Drive the fucking ball.

48 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:15 pm

Yes, two on base for Russell Martin!

Well, who knows. Stranger things have happened.

Though not often.

49 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:15 pm

Oops, I forgot Alex.
Sorry, Centaur!

50 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:15 pm

[43] I'm not a manager at all, at least not of baseball players.

51 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:16 pm

C'mon ARod. We need a Boom Boom here.
And NOT in your pants.

52 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:16 pm

FUCK. He missed his pitch. The 1-0 pitch. FUCK.

53 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:17 pm

Jeter would have been out by fifty feet

54 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:17 pm

Hilarious. Waves him and then holds up his hand. Jeter laughing. A Rod smiling. LOL

55 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:17 pm

YEAH!

56 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:17 pm

Oh my god, its one of those run scoring thingamajigs!

57 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:18 pm

Russ, get this run in, papi.

58 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:18 pm

Wow. A HWRISP!

59 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:18 pm

A-Rod.
Remember?

60 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:18 pm

YEAH! Man, feels good to clear out the old Pipes: YEAH!

61 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:19 pm

Stranger things HAVE happened!

62 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:19 pm

I'll be damned.

63 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:19 pm

[33] I don't mind spring training games if both teams are out of it. Problem comes in when a team out of it starts rookies against a team in the hunt, giving them a better chance of winning while others may have to face regulars.
Yay-Rod & Martin!

64 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:19 pm

Muscle!

65 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:21 pm

Watch Jones' eyes.
Are they open?

66 mhoward120   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:21 pm

Cmom Andrew, treat this as if the whole game's on the line

67 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:21 pm

Andruw JUST a little late on that 1-1 heater. Dag. Moore has him set up now...

68 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:21 pm

[61] :-)

And [54] that really was funny but other exciting things happened right after.

69 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:32 pm

WhatIMissWhatIMiss? A-Rod is back??!

70 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:34 pm

[69] A nice double with Jeter on second and Rob on first.

71 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:35 pm

[64] Hey Boat, are you back in town? How was your trip back to the US of A?

72 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:37 pm

14 or 13 from Willie now?

73 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:38 pm

Sigh.
He's so dreamy.

74 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:43 pm

Hey, so, would anyone advocate making a run at Mike Napoli this winter?

75 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:45 pm

[72] I believe 13.

76 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:47 pm

Don't walk Sam Fuld

77 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:47 pm

[74] No.

78 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:51 pm

This Jewiush kid is killing us!

79 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:52 pm

Big batter coming up.

80 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:52 pm

Almost every left fielder in the league catches that methinks. Jones pretty much quit on it too soon.

81 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:52 pm

[77] Too old?

82 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:52 pm

[75] Thanks.

83 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:53 pm

[78] Have you ever seen his wikipedia?

84 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:54 pm

[78] Desmond Jennings doesn't look Jewish.
Oh, Jewiush, right. Yeah, he does look Jewiush.

85 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:54 pm

[84] Racist.

:)

86 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:56 pm

You know, there are times I *really* wish Eduardo Nunez were competent in the field. If there was a spot on the diamond we could put him, he could do this to other teams when he was on the bases.

87 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:56 pm

Yup.

88 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:56 pm

[81] Yep. Best is behind him..would really love to see a younger Yankee team next year. Gold Watch and pat on the back to Andruw and Raoooool as they retire. Young speedy guys brought in..you know, like Dave Collins back in the day!

89 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:56 pm

All because we couldn't get Sam Fuld out.

90 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:57 pm

Yankees gonna lose this game.

91 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:57 pm

Yep, big batter.

92 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:58 pm

What in the hell?!

93 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:58 pm

[88] Oh, hmmmmmmm.

You're describing a 78-84 team.

94 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 7:59 pm

[93] Was joking...did the humor get lost on the trans-continental journey?

But DO like the thought of a younger, athletic bench..

95 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:01 pm

[94] Whew.
But Napoli wouldn't be on the bench.

I dunno, I just miss Jorgie, I guess.

96 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:03 pm

Its rough to try to build a rally with the...er...lefty mashers at the bottom of the lineup.

97 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:06 pm

Is it some kind of fucking rule that we have to take pitches until we have two strikes?

98 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:06 pm

Girardi is a genius.

99 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:07 pm

Okay, Russell, take as many pitches as you need.

100 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:07 pm

[98] Bow down before him.

Wait, I go to refresh my drink and we lose the lead?

Martin!

102 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:08 pm

Jays take the lead on the squeeze.

103 mhoward120   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:08 pm

Who bitched earlier about Russell batting 5th?

The Return of Coltrane!

105 randym77   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:09 pm

[101] S'okay, we got it back again.

And the Jays took the lead over the Orioles.

106 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:11 pm

[104] It's like Milestones!

107 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:12 pm

Oh fuck.

Hopefully the Jays hold on and we can at least hold on to the tie.

108 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:12 pm

[83] Seems like a real good kid.
And a NH native. Cool.
My Ex is a Nutritionist, and one of her patients was Bobby Tewksbury, when he was a Yankee.

109 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:12 pm

Giving up a home run to that asshole, idiot moron Scott is unacceptable!

110 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:13 pm

[106] Great album!

111 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:13 pm

That lead didn't last long.

112 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:14 pm

[94] Yeah, I miss his unique baserunning blunders and redassity. He'd definitely have put a foot up somebody's bebop by now (in the clubhouse or on the basepath, you choose).

It would have to be Luke Scott. The birther.

116 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:18 pm

Wow, lookit the Jays. Huh.

117 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:19 pm

[71] It was short and sweet. Had some great sammies. Saw the Old Man. Took in a Yankee game. Fantastic night. Fantastic seats. But it was the one when Soriano blew the save on the last strike (right after I explained the "untuck" to my friend who is not a big fan). Nonetheless, I had a blast.

118 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:21 pm

Jonesy! We want more.

137 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:31 pm

141 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:33 pm

I could be wrong, but Swisher has struck out the last 47 times I've seen him bat.

142 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:34 pm

A Rod: the white gloves have slapped you in the face.

Challenge.

143 rbj   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:34 pm

And Jays are winning.
G-men could only score a field goal on first & goal from the two yard line.

144 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:34 pm

What's with Swisher's pants anymore. Up. Down. Up. Down.

145 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:35 pm

Okay guys, just hold on now

146 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:35 pm

Drat.

So this is it. Kuroda has to get three outs. Make it through this inning and hold the fucking lead. C'mon brother, do your job.

147 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:37 pm

My bad. Kuroda's out, Boone's in.

148 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:38 pm

[140] I'll vouch for that. :)

[146] No faith in JoRoSo??

149 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:39 pm

[140] There is one God and he is Me.

Hey, you and Paul Ryan! (Maybe you don't get that joke? Are you following the quadrennial shenanigans here?)

150 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:39 pm

Booooooone!

151 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:40 pm

Boooooo!

152 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:41 pm

Ah Jeez, Boone. Four pitch walk? Damn, son.

153 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:42 pm

Not for nothin', but why is Boone pitching to righty power hitters?

Just sayin'.

154 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:43 pm

That was strike three, blue. Damn.

155 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:43 pm

Oh, okay!

156 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:44 pm

Ah, that's more like it.
Four outs for D-Rob?

157 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:44 pm

David Robertson vs. Evan Longoria. Must See TV.

158 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:45 pm

[157] I can't watch..even on my phone mlb.com Gameday graphics..too nervous expecting "in play; run(s)"...

159 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:46 pm

Shit, I smell three run homer.

160 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:47 pm

Right.
So, this would be a very good time for a not-home-run.
Preferably the out kind of not-home-run.

161 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:48 pm

Oh hell yes.

Star of the game!

162 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:48 pm

SWEET play by Jetes. But he's hobbling a little.

DJ!

164 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:48 pm

[149] Actually, my religion is running. And anyone who says he ran a sub-3 hour marathon when he didn't even come close is a unmitigated schmuck.

Most people with proper training and a little extra effort can run around 4 hours. My first was 3:10, and I haven't come close to that since, but sub-3 is my ultimate goal. It's not something to bandied about.

165 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:49 pm

I mean, say whatever you want about his range, but he does that as well as any SS in the game.

Oh, Mr. OK: he had to sprint into the outfield and catch the ball over his shoulder.

166 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:49 pm

Whew. The Captain is having a helluva game.

167 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:50 pm

[164] I can't agree with you about that. It's more douche-y than schmuck-y.

168 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:51 pm

[149] The guy who runs Marathons in under 3 hours?

169 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:51 pm

Damn, McGee throws cheddar.

170 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:52 pm

[167] Douche-y for sure. I kind of like schmucks..then again, I'm from Brooklyn.

171 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:53 pm

Has Granderson gotten a hit in the last 2 weeks?

172 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:54 pm

[170] You like pricks?!! Duuuuuuude

173 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:54 pm

O's score 2 in the top of the 9th. J's over Birds still 6-4, but 3 outs to go.

174 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:55 pm

[168] You are so slow! See [164]

[170] Well, it all depends on context, I'd say. You don't want a schmuck dating your sister. You don't want to be sitting next to one at the game. It was fine to be in the same algebra class as one.

Now, a douche, you wouldn't vote for.

175 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 8:57 pm

Baltimore loses!

176 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:01 pm

C'mon D Rob, don't lose Upton, now...

177 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:02 pm

YEAH. Onions!

178 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:03 pm

They just keep holdin' me,
A-won't let go;
Holdin' me;
Won't let go!

I need a hammer - a hammer - a hammer - a hammer
To hammer them down!
I need a rammer - a rammer - a rammer - a rammer
To ram them down!

179 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:04 pm

Well... if we will this game, it will be on an error, as our guy was cooked at the plate.
Wasn't our last Win on an error?

180 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:10 pm

[179] Yep

181 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:11 pm

[179] Yeah, and Ichiro took a weird route to the plate. It's almost like he hesitated before the ball got through.

182 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:15 pm

Jeter is 2nd in OPS amoung MLB Shortstops, yet he is only 18th in WAR. Let's you know that defense matters.

183 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:15 pm

Wow, that was an adventure for Alex, and for all of us, knowing that's not his strong suit.

184 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:16 pm

Man.... ARod HATES popups!

185 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:16 pm

Oh that's strike three you blind sloth.

Yike, A-Rod under a pop foul... whew.

186 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:16 pm

Once I wished we had Carlos Peña. Seems like a long time ago.

187 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:18 pm

I'm not wearing a shirt (as it's 90 in Tokyo), but if I was I would be getting ready to...

188 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:19 pm

FIRST PLACE!
FIRST PLACE!
FIRST PLACE!
We're in 1st place!

189 Mattpat11   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:19 pm

There we go. Back in first all by ourselves.

190 Ara Just Fair   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:20 pm

Well that's much better.

191 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:20 pm

Yay!
W!

192 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:20 pm

16,000 at the Trop.
Fenway still gets 30,000+ every game.

And by the way, local pundits are predicting that the "sellout streak" will end shortly. (Just because John Henry is ready for it to end.)

193 Boatzilla   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:21 pm

...UNTUCK IT!

194 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:26 pm

All that panicking for nuttin'!

195 RIYank   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:29 pm

[194] I thought you said it was excitement!

196 Alex Belth   ~  Sep 5, 2012 9:34 pm

Untucked!
