G46: Yankees 8, Red Sox 3

We were never in this one, as Schilling gave up three runs in his first 15 pitches. Crappy pitching, wasted at-bats, sloppy fielding, a mistake or two on the bases, etc.

Let New York celebrate. They are now only three games under .500 and have crawled back to less than 10 games out of first place.

On to Texas.

***

Curt Schilling (3.57, 122 ERA+) / Andy Pettitte (2.83, 146 ERA+)

Schilling has not been sharp in his last two starts. Last time out, he threw 118 pitches in six innings against Detroit, allowing eight hits and two runs. Before that, he surrendered nine hits and four runs to the Orioles over 5.1 innings. Schilling (7-8-5-1-5) faced the Yankees on April 20, a game the Red Sox won, thanks to a five-run eighth inning.

I just knew they were going to play WMP tonight. Drew is 6 for 14 with a double and 2 homers while WMP has a double and 3 K's in 8 AB's. You would think that you would play someone who is struggling against a pitcher who he hits well.

mattymatty said...

I hate this lineup. I know Drew has been struggling and I don't mind giving WMP a day in right, but do you have to put the two worst hitters on the team in front of Big Papi and Manny? If either of them manages to get on base its genius, but that happens somewhere below 'not too often.'

Zenslinger said...

I think if you're Tito you just have to have a little faith in the guys. They're not exactly awful; they did OK last night.

But I do like Youk in 2nd, admittedly, or leadoff for that matter.

Woti-woti said...

Pettitte must be thinking that pitching to AL lineups is no big deal. Maybe he's been saying that to Fat Billy. Time for the Sox offense to send a serious message.

Zenslinger said...

But Pettite never thought he'd have worse run support in NY than Houston. (All right, I didn't do the math, but it's been pretty bad.) Let him say THAT to Rog.

Sean said...

I'm off to a thing tonight, hope everyone has a good game. Please let us slap Pettitte right out of the game, and really crush the Yankees. Bullpen for 8 innings would be acceptable.

night night.

Zenslinger said...

Read "Bet" for "But" in my last post.

redsock said...

I hate this lineup. ... do you have to put the two worst hitters on the team in front of Big Papi and Manny?

I know, but I'm trying to let it slide, since we are 31-14.

Why not keep Yook at #2 and put the white-hot Lowell at #5?

Yook

redsock said...

shit - espn again.

looks like another night of mute.

redsock said...

shitty shit. it's worse than i thought.

chris berman AND steve phillips.

MUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woti-woti said...

Berman and Steve Philips on MLB-EI. Sweet baby jayzus. Nothing like a good mute button and MLB audio.

Jackie said...

sock - Do you have MLB.tv? It's not blacked out for ESPN games, if you find the YES crew more tolerable (which I do, particularly if the Yanks are losing).

Zenslinger said...

I complained to my die-hard Yankee fan of a local bartender after watching Monday's game on mlb.tv with the YES crew. He said he puts NESN on in the bar because even he can't stand YES.

Zenslinger said...

Crisp looked safe, eh?

redsock said...

L wants sound, so I get to hear Berman say the Yanks have a great fielding team. Oy.

thatdietcokegirl said...

crisp was safe. w/e ump

redsock said...

can we get tavarez to come back out and pitch?

thatdietcokegirl said...

he could prolly do it too.

redsock said...

fat billy walks 3 sea dogs in the 1st inning, 30 pitches, no runs.

redsock said...

was about to say NOTHING is worse than michael kay, but man, berman is fucking horrible.

redsock said...

pray harder, curt.

thatdietcokegirl said...

haha i said that on his blog once 'pray harder'. srsly, he should.

thatdietcokegirl said...

fugly.

thatdietcokegirl said...

*crickets*

where is everybody?

c'mon 2 on lets go!!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

and quickly..over. sheeet.

redsock said...

berman said the arod slap was in "the schilling game" in 2004 alcs.

way to go, moron.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i think lugo and a-rod are having words.

thatdietcokegirl said...

berman said the arod slap was in "the schilling game" in 2004 alcs.

haha. god how does that guy have a job.


ok kinda would like to get on the board now. let's go boys. 1 run. can i have 1 run? thx :))

redsock said...

also fun is when berman starts talking and he goes on and on and forgets to breath and is nearly choking by the end of the sentence.

RUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

curt keeps shitting the bed.

can the bats do anything against toucan sam?

Jackie said...

fat billy walks 3 sea dogs in the 1st inning,

... and yet is still probably doing better than Schilling has been. *sigh*

Jackie said...

Hahahaha, Abreu. Thank you, you just made this game tolerable.

thatdietcokegirl said...

fahhhhhhhhhhhhk dp. it's that kinda night i guess.

redsock said...

i'm considering this game as a loss. anything else will be a nice surprise.

9.5 don't bother me. if we had come in at 8.5 and left at 9.5, we'd all be thrilled.

thatdietcokegirl said...

yah take a seat jorge.

thatdietcokegirl said...

9.5 don't bother me. if we had come in at 8.5 and left at 9.5, we'd all be thrilled.

true. 9.5 is decidedly dandy. i'd just feel better if the (possible) loss wasn't a shut-out right now.

thatdietcokegirl said...

jerry and don are starting to giggle like girls which = we are either winning by alot or losing by alot.

redsock said...

!!!

manny goes into second like superman jumping out of a window!!!

huge head first dive!

redsock said...

one horrible thing about the rivalry - out of market, you have to endure these espn tools.

tim said...

this sucks.

especially the YES commentary on that last manny double...

"This is a guy who thinks its gone so he doesnt run hard out of the box"

they show the replay and he's clearly booking it.

announcer: "that was probably the fastest ive seen him run"

these guys are complete jackasses.

redsock said...

plus manny beat out an infield single to slappy.

thatdietcokegirl said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

redsock said...

bye bye shutout.

there is time. tek has to do something here though.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i should never diss jerry and don. lol.

thatdietcokegirl said...

ya know what? i'll take it. you could feel the fear in the air ;) (i was there spiritually)

redsock said...

are the nyc media going to get tired of writing THEY ARE BACK, no they suck, THEY ARE BACK, no they suck, THEY ARE BACK, no they suck, THEY ARE BACK, no they suck, all summer?

thatdietcokegirl said...

curt should really be out of this game right now. but yeah...

Jackie said...

Ask and ye shall receive, diet coke girl. Hope Pettitte will be out next inning as well - no reason we can't score five off of Proctor et al. :)

Jackie said...

Uh, make that six? Or, better, forget I said anything.

thatdietcokegirl said...

that's the spirit ;D

(or ya know, 6 runs;))

thatdietcokegirl said...

Uh, make that six? Or, better, forget I said anything.

lol.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i still always feel like we can win tho. even if this game sucks, etc.

holla? ;)

Jackie said...

way to get started, Coco!

Six runs (five runs!) in six outs? Totally reasonable. :D

thatdietcokegirl said...

no shit i just said 'we need a home run' and bam. crisp was like 'ok'
;D!!!!!!!!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

Six runs (five runs!) in six outs? Totally reasonable. :D

i'm in concurrance.

Jackie said...

no shit i just said 'we need a home run' and bam. crisp was like 'ok'

you should have been talking to them earlier, then!

It's weird, as pessimistic as I can be when we have a lead, I'm always equally optimistic about coming from behind. I wouldn't put anything past this team.

thatdietcokegirl said...

concurrence, even.

(perfectionist in the house)

thatdietcokegirl said...

you should have been talking to them earlier, then!

i know, i need to get my esp on. i'll work on it for za future.

It's weird, as pessimistic as I can be when we have a lead, I'm always equally optimistic about coming from behind. I wouldn't put anything past this team.

whoa, same. i'm totally the same. it is weird lol.

*lively cricket chirping*

thatdietcokegirl said...

aw jeah mo's up. party?

Jackie said...

I hope so.

Looks like Dougie Fresh has been eating his greenies...er, I mean Wheaties... lately. WTF?

thatdietcokegirl said...

call that an insurance run ;p

thatdietcokegirl said...

didn't look like he went, but ok.

Stephanie said...

OMFG!!!! YANKEES WINNING STREAK! THEYRE ON FIRE - THE OFFENSE IS THE BEST ITS BEEN SINCE THE LIKES OF RUTH AND MANTLE WERE ON IT!!!! OMGOMGOMG THEY CANT BE STOPPED!!!!!!

then there were 9.5 games to be tied for first.

here we come tx

thatdietcokegirl said...

ahaha

thatdietcokegirl said...

i thank red sock for the perspective. ;)

Sean said...

Oh god oh god, it's over, it's over, what are we going to do, lord help us.

Matsuzaka's pitching tomorrow, right? It'll be interesting to see how he does vs. such a homer-friendly lineup in Texas. I expect tons of breaking balls, though even when he didn't have his stuff against the Tigers he embarrassed them pretty soundly.

With a 9.5 game lead, what the hell are we going to do now. Season's over anyway. Honestly, what's funniest isn't that we lost 2 of 3 to the Yankees, but we lost 2 of 3 to a sub-500 team.
