Is this thing on?

I would say that ground-rule double was unfortunate, but with Adrian running...
   3. Dan Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:19 PM (#4194137)
At least Phil Hughes still sucks.
   4. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:20 PM (#4194139)
Saltalamacchia in an 0-2 count is such a foregone conclusion.
   5. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:27 PM (#4194143)
That was the slowest developing double play I've ever seen.
   6. Dan Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:28 PM (#4194145)
Aviles moving in slow motion?
   7. Dan Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:31 PM (#4194151)
Well that was a shock.
   8. Dan Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:32 PM (#4194152)
Cook is hanging sinkers at shoulder height. That's just impressively awful.
   9. veer bender Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:41 PM (#4194161)
Has it ever been determined who made the call for Cook over Morales in the rotation?
   10. Dan Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:48 PM (#4194169)

   11. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:59 PM (#4194172)
Wow. Just wow.
   12. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 27, 2012 at 07:59 PM (#4194175)
Tough to thread the needle on a hit like that.
   13. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 27, 2012 at 08:05 PM (#4194179)
are we seriously intentionally walking raul ibanez

is this what it's come to
   14. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 27, 2012 at 08:11 PM (#4194181)
Ibanez was 6 for 12 against Cook.
   15. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 27, 2012 at 08:13 PM (#4194184)
Solo HRs, solo HRs for everyone!
   16. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 27, 2012 at 08:14 PM (#4194185)
Ibanez was 6 for 12 against Cook.

Small sample size, etc., etc. I don't know about you, but I don't want my team's manager making stupid tactical decisions because of 12 ABs.

Not the Yankees.
   18. Mayor Blomberg Posted: July 27, 2012 at 08:29 PM (#4194192)
are there smart tactical decisions based on 12 AB?
   19. The Yankee Clapper Posted: July 27, 2012 at 08:35 PM (#4194195)

Actually, it was 13 ABs (with 7 hits) when you add in the 1st inning HR. Given that you had Andruw Jones against a right-hander next, the walk seemed the way to go.

The guy in the Yankee Ichiro t-shirt was waaaay too excited about getting the foul ball.


There is a part of me that just wants to get swept this weekend to put away any illusions of contention so Cherington doesn't do anything stupid this week.
   21. Mayor Blomberg Posted: July 27, 2012 at 09:07 PM (#4194219)
Maybe Phil Hughes doesn't suck quite so much?

While being far too lazy to run the numbers, I find it unlikely that Ibanez is better enough than Jones for that at bat to justify the extra baserunner.

That'll settle out the Pyth a bit.
