If the Yanks weren’t in the throws of their other shoe dropping, yesterday’s 9-5  ass kicking at the hands of the Devil Rays would have been  pretty funny entertainment

I’ve seen a lot of troubled faces in my time but Nibbles Tanaka’s downer mug is sitting chalk at the moment. Apparently he’s healthy, so it’s a Dr Melfi  issue, because neither Larry, Moe Girardi, or Curly Perez can figure it out..

Forget Espada, and after watching Thomson hit the Levy head on with our good ship  Steinbrenner on Friday, he’s better off just  carrying Joe Dirt’s spit bucket…

Actually the Tanaka debacle is disturbing, but Psycho Joe Dirt getting tossed in the 5th inning was pure  entertainment….

I bet Psycho Joe Dirt’s daughter is real happy this psychotic DNA is now  logged into her college application portfolio

Messauppa Tanaka


With seven losses in the last 10 games, the 24-16 Yankees have a common theme: The rotation has been bad. In those 10 games, starters are 2-6 with a 7.08 ERA and 10 of the 63 hits have been homers.

“The fastball command wasn’t good tonight,’’ said Sanchez, who homered in the fifth and was smoked in the jaw on the right side by a foul tip in the sixth but remained in the game. “In the first inning, the split was good. After that, it was a little too hard.”

he was shelled for six runs, nine hits (three homers), three walks (one intentionally) in three-plus innings, he was asked if his pride was wounded.

“I don’t look at it as a pride thing, but the bottom line is I just couldn’t get the job done today and the previous outing,” said Tanaka, who is 5-3 with a bloated 6.56 ERA and hasn’t looked good since throwing a complete-game shutout against the Red Sox on April 27 at Fenway Park. “I need to be better than that

Psycho Joe Dirt said he appears to be healthy he does all his between starts work with out complaining.. Then  again look at  the source of intel, nobody trusts Lying Joe, he’s a fake news ninja

Tanaka: In his past two starts, Tanaka has struck out seven batters and allowed seven home runs.

If he can’t find his groove, it will unsettle the entire rotation and will continue to be a burden on the bullpen.

Tanaka needs to be dominant, not a punching bag. 

“I just have to be better,” Tanaka said. “Learn from my mistakes.”

There is plenty. The alarms sounded before and during the game.

The media geniuses are now starting to  understand that any Billy Goat in the yard could have deployed Betances, Miller, and Chapman, and win some bogus Girardi among best bullpen manager polls

Of course now with Chapman down everybody in the pen has to carry more shingles up  the ladder and so  far unless the offense outhits bad pitching that load has been too heavy to  lift..

When Tanaka struggles, there is a residual effect, and that is what the Yankees are facing now with Chapman out for at least a month with a shoulder issue.


The Yanks are carrying two pitchers in the pen who lower the win probability, Layne and Gallegos.. They  have 3 pitchers at AAA who might be better options, but they’re being stretched out for starter roles

Time to  decide if they’re going for it, or just  faking another playoff run, until  the payroll drops under the luxury tax?

  2. I thought he shoulda won last year. When during a post game presser he cried & waxed poetic about Arod. THAT…..was a performance!!
    Since the Academy snubbed him last year, they might make amends this year.
    Love to see him wear Givency to the Oscars & walk the Red Carpet!!! Lol

  3. Bad sign there fellas
    3 weeks ago the boys hang a crooked number
    Some of the pitches Castro and Judge swung at looked like they’re pressing
    21 pitches in Archer’s bill is about all we can take from that inning

    Yanks need an Archer

    Girardi goes to great lengths to split up lefties but bats four righties in a row against a guy who crushes righties. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    • Hey Donny yeah I’m with you.. nice big win, hopefully Shotgun Chapman gets back very soon.. Not because of Betances, he pitched a fuck you 1.1 nasty heat

      the young man learned a lesson how the MLB suits work, so maybe he’s going for the eye wash, and they all seem to love 100 MPH
