Clippard and Carter Make The Games a Lot Harder

with 35 comments

Well  the 6 game winning streak is over, as J C Ramirez and 4 of his BFF’s held the powerful NYY to  2 runs on 7 hits over 11 innings to out grind the Bombers 3-2

Not only did the Bombers snap  their win streak, Boston playing the Phillies, literally the worst team in baseball,  won their 2nd game in a row in extra innings to  cut the AL East lead to  3 games.. Boston has 2 more games  vs  Philly, only the next 2 are in Philadelphia so  we can be assured they  won’t walk off 3 in a row..

To  compound the Bombers excruciating loss, CC Sabathia left after the 4th inning with a strained Hamstring, so  he gone… There was a time when Sabathia going on the DL would have been  a good thing, but not this year, the Bombers are gonna lose one of their top 3 pitchers for a while

Sabathia’a next start  would have been Sunday in Oakland so  we’ll  wait to  see who  replaces him.. My guess Domingo German  should get the start, unless Cashman  wants to  put Chance Adams on the 40  man  and start his clock until CC gets back

If you didn’t stay up  until  2:30 watching this debacle, count your blessings..Angels pitching held Judge, Holliday, Castro  and Sanchez 0-17 with 5 K’s ..

Judge whiffed 3 times, Castro, Sanchez, and Judge at least all  walked once each.. Chase Headley with 3 hits that included  a HR  a double and a single, was a one man  wrecking crew, but he couldn’t do it alone as the Yanks went 1 for 8 with RISP..

With the game knotted 2-2 in the 11th Carter had a shot to make up  for his horrendous error in the 4th that  eventually turned into  a Anaheim’s first run, but he popped up  with the bases loaded..

Carter not only made the costly error that  extended  the inning Sabathia was injured in, he whiffed 3 times, and brings an insidious .207 /.298 / .371 /.669 to  a power corner position

 The Bombers can’t get Bird up  and running fast enough, they  desperately need to  fill  this black  hole at first  base.. In fact Tyler Austin has to be on Cashman’s mind, anything is better then Carter, well maybe not the way  Bird played this season, but almost anything…

Gallegos and Warren kept the Angles off the board as the Yanks thanks to Headley took a slim 2-1 lead into  the 7th inning… Why Formula Joe went with Gas Can  Clippard is beyond me

“He’s important and we have to get him going”

I couldn’t stand to  watch  a pregame at  2:30 having to get to  working this morning by 8 AM so I’m assuming that’s what he said.

They  should get him going alright, get him going out of the Bronx and take Carter with him

  2. Joey Claps–” Well, it’s not what you want to see happen, but Clippard is my 8th inning guy, come hell or high water.” ” Cashman has had three M.I.T. interns studying this and we don’t give a shit what it looks like to you.” ” Same way with Carter, it happens, and the odds were in our favor that he would catch that ball from Didi.”

    • Great point Noogsie


      June 14, 2017 at 10:19 am

  3. As far as 2:30 is concerned……guilty as charged your Honor. I throw myself on the mercy of the Court. Let it be known, that I’m now in a 12 Step Program to combat the problem.

    • Tough way to get no sleep bondsie
      Good luck


      June 14, 2017 at 10:20 am

  4. Man the more I think about this game more pissed off I get

    Carter and Clippard

    Maybe Sabathia doesn’t get hurt if the inning doesn’t extend

    Now Cashman needs to trade for a pitcher with a track record because the genius manger doesn’t trust young pitchers

    Good point by the Met mutts although it’s a second guess pinch running for Sanchez with him on 1 st base
    But yes Torreyes scores on the DD double

    Then we’re complaining he yanked one of his best hitters


    June 14, 2017 at 10:18 am

    • So that one is a stretch but I wish he would have


      June 14, 2017 at 10:21 am

  5. Penny Layne, nobody wanted him so he’s back with the Yanks

    Tommy Layne passed through waivers and was outrighted to SWB

  6. The Sween Machine

    Sweeny Murti @YankeesWFAN

    Now 0-12 when scoring less than 3 runs.
    Erik Boland @eboland11
    Yankee offense that outscored opposition 60-12 during the six-game winning streak went 1-for-8 with RISP tonight and stranded 11.

    Sweeny Murti @YankeesWFAN

    First time this year #Yankees lost a game they led after 7 innings. Were 33-0.

  7. Billy Witz @billywitz
    Last time Headley was intentionally walked was 8/31/16 – so the Royals could pitch to Aaron Judge.

  8. Get this fuckin gidrool off the mound Girardi let the kid pitch
    This ass hole Pineda blew the game up
    He’s got nothing you can see he won’t hunt tonight every batter smoked him

    Apparently the Angels didn’t get the memo the Yanks are a steam roller


    June 14, 2017 at 11:31 pm

    • Boston won again fellas better get the O in gear and get Pineda off the bump
      I’d rather see them go down with a kid
      at least that’s working for the future


      June 14, 2017 at 11:36 pm

  9. Nightmare


    June 14, 2017 at 11:37 pm

    • They’re turning back the clock to when The Angels owned them
      Can’t get out of SoCal fast enough

      And the chump is back on the bump


      June 14, 2017 at 11:42 pm

  10. Boras is sizing up Judge and Sanchez
    Thank God he stole a scoreless inning


    June 14, 2017 at 11:47 pm

  11. Valbuena is the gift that keeps on giving on defense
    All of a sudden Young jr turns into Barry Bonds on both sides of the ball


    June 14, 2017 at 11:58 pm

    • Espada strikes again


      June 14, 2017 at 11:59 pm

  12. Espada must die !!!


    June 15, 2017 at 12:04 am

    • Espada is a Joey Claps butt boy Donny he’s a made man


      June 15, 2017 at 12:09 am

  13. Pineda making a .170 hitter look like Griffey jr

    Flash in the pan good eye maybe Girardi should make a move
    That 4 th inning was a mirage

    Angels have their hitting shoes on or Pineda is pitching BP


    June 15, 2017 at 12:06 am

    • Angels are trying to give them this game let’s see if they can take it


      June 15, 2017 at 12:11 am

  14. Tough break DD almost found real estate


    June 15, 2017 at 12:15 am

    • Jorge Posada school of base running

      man Simmons can D


      June 15, 2017 at 12:18 am

  15. Backing Tanaka up a day sounds good
    Let these kids pitch

    Gray will be auditioning for a Yankee trade


    June 15, 2017 at 12:22 am

    • Great play Headley and Hicks in the first
      Figures at 90 pitches Pineda wakes up


      June 15, 2017 at 12:23 am

  16. Shag Singleton has to be kidding he already blew the game up
    They gave him a 4 run lead
    Girardi is killing Herrera warming him up
    Miller killed Girardi for that in the media


    June 15, 2017 at 12:28 am

  17. Beautiful bunt Little Hank


    June 15, 2017 at 12:38 am

  19. Nice shift on Albert


    June 15, 2017 at 12:56 am

    • hottest hitter on the team vs a AA kid
      So they won’t bring up Adams Cessa Mitchell Torres Bird Frazier Fowler
      But they bring up a AA kid

      Angels played them better then Boston or Baltimore
      Tip of the cap they kicked the Yanks ass
      6 outs to turn it around or it’s a 2 game lead with Sale vs Philly tomorrow


      June 15, 2017 at 1:04 am

    • Simmons was all glove no stick in Atlanta man his he good now


      June 15, 2017 at 1:07 am
