What? No love for Bill Pulsipher?!?
   2. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: July 08, 2006 at 03:08 PM (#2092015)
"Pulse," I noticed in yesterday's Daily News, just signed with the Long Island Ducks
   3. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 04:11 PM (#2092034)
Even snarky Yankee fans can't hide their curiosity with the biggest rookie pitching debut in New York in recent memory. Still, there must be some level of mirroring in seeing Pelfrey. How Pelfrey fares in his first cup may dictate what the Yankees do with Hughes for the rest of the season.
   4. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 08, 2006 at 04:45 PM (#2092046)
Damn. No Reyes.

Is there any way I can get around FOX's blackout to watch Pelfrey's start?
   5. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:28 PM (#2092058)
I haven't given up on Maine yet. At least, not entirely.
   6. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:30 PM (#2092060)
1-2-3 inning for Maine. Excited for Mustachio's leadoff stylings
   7. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:33 PM (#2092063)
Valentin batting leadoff is... odd...
   8. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:36 PM (#2092065)
Makes as much sense as anything else. I'm guessing we'll see Endy in for either Nady or Floyd in Game #2.
   9. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:37 PM (#2092067)
Makes as much sense as anything else.

I don't disagree. It was still strange to witness though.
   10. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:40 PM (#2092068)
Jeez, I really thought that Cliff had that too.
   11. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:51 PM (#2092079)
Delgado has really been a dissapointment.
   12. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:53 PM (#2092083)
Yeah. He has. Good hitter, but he should be hitting at MVP level.
   13. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 05:58 PM (#2092087)
I'm still down with the theory that Delgado is slightly hurt.
   14. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:00 PM (#2092088)
I'd buy it. At least, I'm not afraid that he's going to have a Burnitzy tumble. Are there any rumored or reported injuries?
   15. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:02 PM (#2092089)
OK John Maine, make your mark
   16. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:07 PM (#2092093)
Delgado sat for a couple games against the Red Sox (I think) because of a sore ribcage or back problem. Something of that nature (yeah, anything involving the torso is close in my book) ... I don't remember exactly what it was, but it was noteworthy because in the chatter the day before, one of the Yankee chatters mentioned that Delgado reminded him of Giambi when Giambi was hurting. Then there was a comparison of velocity off the bat on Delgado's homeruns, which was inconclusive, but did show a decline.

Meh, my brain isn't working today. Nor do I want it to be.
   17. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:11 PM (#2092096)
Maine's doing alright.
   18. J. Cross Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:12 PM (#2092097)
I had to go back on my DVR to make sure I wasn't seeing things but that strikeout pitch by Maine hit 96 mph on the Fox gun.
   19. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:14 PM (#2092098)
96 on the Fox gun = 93-94 in real life? That's pretty damn good for a "all-stats no-stuff" prospect
   20. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:16 PM (#2092100)
Whatever happens in the early game, I hope it is fast, cause I have work at 6 PM and want to catch at least a few innings of Pelfrey.
   21. PreservedFish Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:21 PM (#2092104)
And speaking of the Fox gun, Pelfrey might hit 99 for the first time in his career if it's juiced as usual
   22. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:24 PM (#2092105)
I hope that it's just an injury with Delgado. I'm worried that we're afraid to face the most likely probability - a decline for a once great hitter. It's not going to happen, but if I'm in the FO, I try to trade Delgado for 90 cents on the dollar before his contract becomes unmoveable.
   23. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:24 PM (#2092106)
STACHE with the tag!
   24. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:24 PM (#2092107)
Wow, I thought he was safe at first, but that was a helluva call by the umpire.
   25. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:25 PM (#2092108)
Maine's looked awfully good since his recovery from the injury and stint in the minors. I'd rather have him than Benson.
   26. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:28 PM (#2092109)
Pretty good for Maine so far, and "only" 63 pitches.
   27. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:30 PM (#2092110)
That was an ugly swing.
   28. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:31 PM (#2092111)
Then again, Dial's point about Delgado not seeing the ball well might have something to do with it. He has no business swinging at that last pitch.
   29. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:37 PM (#2092115)
That's not good.
   30. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:47 PM (#2092122)
Haha, nice D.
   31. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:51 PM (#2092125)
Bags loaded, come on Woody!
   32. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:52 PM (#2092127)
Dammit.

Let's go Beltran!
   33. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:52 PM (#2092128)
Woody has been crappy this year.
   34. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:52 PM (#2092129)
Yeah, lets bat Woodward 2md because he's the 2nd baseman. Fantastic.
   35. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:54 PM (#2092131)
Good eye Carlos.
   36. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:54 PM (#2092132)
Walk! I'll take it!

Delgado out, Father Time in.
   37. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:56 PM (#2092133)
Walk! Tie game!
   38. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:56 PM (#2092134)
Another walk! And Franco wasn't going to swing!

Come on David!
   39. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:57 PM (#2092135)
Johnson has completely lost it. This is good even if the Mets don't break it open here. Johnson isn't going to pitch very deep in this game.
   40. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:57 PM (#2092136)
Yikes, talk about leaving a pitcher in to die...
   41. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 06:59 PM (#2092137)
Not clutch, Wright!
   42. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:00 PM (#2092140)
Yikes, talk about leaving a pitcher in to die...

Hmm, Randolph and Girardi both were bench coaches under Torre...
   43. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:01 PM (#2092143)
Still, you gotta feel good about the Mets' chances right now. That Marlin bullpen is pretty weak.
   44. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2092144)
BELTRAN ASSIST!
   45. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2092145)
Beltran with the gun!
   46. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2092146)
Nice throw, Beltran!
   47. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:04 PM (#2092147)
Maine should probably stop giving up homers.
   48. Anabolix Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:04 PM (#2092148)
The Marlin's bullpen has been pretty good the last month though...HANLEY!
   49. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:04 PM (#2092149)
D'oh!
   50. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:05 PM (#2092150)
That was an impressive shot by Hanley.
   51. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:05 PM (#2092151)
Why do we even bother with stiffs like Maine?
   52. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:09 PM (#2092152)
Why do we even bother with stiffs like Maine?

Because stiffs like Lima can't "pitch" everyday?
   53. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:11 PM (#2092155)
I'm ready for MacLane to get his chance now. Maine didn't do terrible, but he looks like another in a long line of fifth starters.
   54. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:13 PM (#2092156)
I wish Nady had another appendix. He's the new Ty Wigginton.
   55. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:18 PM (#2092160)
It's a Feliciford inning.
   56. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:18 PM (#2092161)
A double switch? I didn't know Willie knew how to do one.
   57. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:19 PM (#2092162)
With the way Nady's hitting right now, Endy might be more valuable on defense alone. Whenever he's playing, he gets to one or two balls a game that you definitely know that Nady wouldn't get to.
   58. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:22 PM (#2092163)
I agree regarding Endy/Nady. Other than 2-3 homers Nady hits a month, what does Nady offer?
   59. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:24 PM (#2092165)
Come on Chad, one more out.
   60. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:24 PM (#2092166)
C'mon Chad. One down, one to go.
   61. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:25 PM (#2092167)
Bradford!!
   62. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:26 PM (#2092168)
Excellent, Bradford.
   63. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:26 PM (#2092169)
CHAD BRADFORD!!!
   64. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:26 PM (#2092171)
Chadford for MVP and Pope.
   65. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2092174)
Well, this game isn't very fun so far.
   66. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2092175)
Beltran, you stink.
   67. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:42 PM (#2092176)
Doesn't matter how many walks you draw, it's going to be hard to win with only two hits.
   68. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:44 PM (#2092178)
Stache has range.
   69. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:49 PM (#2092182)
Fox was so happy that Franco got into the game so they could show that birthdate graphic.
   70. Dog on the sidewalk has an ugly bracelet Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:51 PM (#2092184)
These announcers are impressively bad.
   71. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:51 PM (#2092185)
Nice AB by Old Man Franco.
   72. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:52 PM (#2092187)
Obviously, I love Wright, but if he was on another team, I'm pretty sure I'd want to kill him.
   73. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:53 PM (#2092189)
Franco is such a good hitter. Seriously, his home run power has disappeared but he just knows what he's doing up there. Beautiful.
   74. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:57 PM (#2092190)
It's only a matter of time before Floyd gets really mad and possibly takes out an entire team.
   75. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:58 PM (#2092193)
On the pitching, Oliver has earned a shot at the rotation - absolutely awesome numbers so far. We can replace him in the bullpen with Ring.

Have to give credit to this lineup, we're creative with our ways of moving runners and getting on base.
   76. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 07:59 PM (#2092194)
If Jose Reyes slides head first, I will go find him and smack him myself.
   77. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:01 PM (#2092196)
Yeah, LoDuca. Awesome.
   78. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:02 PM (#2092197)
Ramon Castro, we need a hit.
   79. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:03 PM (#2092198)
If Jose Reyes slides head first, I will go find him and smack him myself.

Get walking!
   80. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:03 PM (#2092199)
Ugh.
   81. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:14 PM (#2092212)
Nicely done, Sanchez!
   82. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:14 PM (#2092213)
Well, Sanchez decided to get some strikeouts!
   83. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:15 PM (#2092214)
Vintage Dirty. Cabrera gets tossed.
   84. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:17 PM (#2092217)
I'm surprised. Cabrera must have known that was coming. I wonder if FLA hits a Mets even though it's the bottom of the 9th.
   85. Raskolnikov Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:22 PM (#2092221)
Argh.
   86. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:23 PM (#2092222)
JESUS ####### CHRIST.
   87. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:23 PM (#2092223)
That's a pitiful performance. LET'S PLAY TWO!
   88. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:24 PM (#2092226)
Well, its Pelfrey time soon.
   89. Sam M. Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:33 PM (#2092232)
So what did Cabrera do to get tossed?
   90. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:39 PM (#2092235)
So what did Cabrera do to get tossed?

The ump warned Miggy to stop jawing at the Mets dugout after Olivo struck out to end the inning. Cabrera's response was, "I don't give a ####." Upon uttering those words, he was immediately tossed.
   91. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:58 PM (#2092242)
He was out! Screwing the kid already!
   92. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 08:58 PM (#2092243)
Nice play by Wright. He was out.
   93. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:01 PM (#2092245)
First K! Who says he doesn't have a breaking ball!
   94. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:03 PM (#2092246)
DP!
   95. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:03 PM (#2092247)
DP!
   96. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:04 PM (#2092248)
Wow, what a turn! That was huge.
   97. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:09 PM (#2092251)
Endy!
   98. Banta Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:09 PM (#2092252)
REYES WHO!? ENDY FOR PRESIDENT
   99. Joshemy Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:10 PM (#2092254)
A lead! Woo!
   100. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 08, 2006 at 09:11 PM (#2092255)
Lo Duca does something useful!
