Trying To Salvage Some Pride: Meche vs. Pettitte 7:05

          The Yanks will be beginning a three game set against the Royals at home tonight before going back on the road to face the Blue Jays and Orioles. Pettitte will take the mound for the Yanks and face Gil Meche for the Royals.

Game Time: 7:05

          The forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms so I don’t know if the game will happen but if it does stop by for the in-game chat. I’m having trouble with the chat window that I used last time. For now we’re going to have to stick with the back and forth comments.

Updates:

5:30: Melky has been sent down and Sexson has been released. The Yanks have called up Gardner and Cody Ransom. The Yanks are making moves now?

5:36: Forgot to mention that Giese was sent to DL the other day from the same injury suffered by Joba. Rasner will likely make the start Tuesday. Hughes will make his next start in the minors on Sunday and will likely return after that… though by then it might be too late.

5:44: Also, Britton has been called up for the bazillionth time to be the long man I assume with Giese out.

7:03: Rain Delay. Great, already something to boo at.

7:32: Still raining in the Bronx…

8:04: Time to watch the Olympics. How long you think before they call the game?

8:36: Finally the game will begin.

8:43: And Pettitte works a quick 1-2-3 to start things off.

8:58: Guys, is it seriously that hard? Pretend the bases are empty if you have to but, jeez start driving in runs already.

9:08: The Royals score first on a sac fly. Trade an out for a run… seems like a good concept. What do the Yanks trade outs for? Nothing.

9:21: It’s kind of funny that as soon as a runner makes it to second base the strikeouts ensue. Already it seems like more of the same. This season has been an embarrassment to the Cathedral.

9:27: Melky who? Gardner says he can flash a little leather too.

9:31: Jeet is on first. Whatever you do A-Rod, do not move him to second. He’ll be in scoring position. It’ll ruin everything. Hit a homer.

9:36: Jeter steals second. Damn. Now the Yanks won’t be able to score.

9:40: What did I say?

9:41: It’s like clockwork. Someone makes it to second… strikeout, strikeout.

9:57: Pettitte is holding them down tonight but again, the offense doesn’t even qualify to be called an “offense”.

10:16: For anyone watching the Olympics… wow. Phelps wins another gold. He wins the 100m butterfly by one one hundredth of a second.
And the Yanks are now down by three… ugh.

10:20: Hold the phone. Did the Yanks just drive in a run with runners in scoring position? Apparently it’s a day for miracles.

10:25: Only one though… at this rate the Yanks would tie in the 15th.

10:30: Pettitte works another scoreless. I bet it’s all for naught.

This is a first: I’m going to have to end the in-gamer early because I have some things I have to take care of. This game hasn’t been all that exciting any way. [They’ll probably make a comeback after I stop watching just to screw with me.] Much thanks to EJ  & Level for stopping by.

    Ladies and gentlemen… we got him.
    *cheering*
    Melky Cabrera sent down! Finally! Let’s see if Gardner and Christian can patrol center like he did. They’re certainly better options with the stick.
    The Cover It Live Thing isn’t letting me type. Do you know what’s happening?

  2. flairforthedramatic

    I don’t know. I’m having trouble with it today. It worked fine the first time. I don’t think I’m going to be able to use it today.

  3. flairforthedramatic

    Lol. If the Yanks are playing garbage ball tonight I’m going to have to switch channels to the Olympics instead.

  4. thekfny28

    Congrats to our gymnasts Natsia Liukin and cute little Shawn Johnson for Gold and Silver medals respectively.

    I’m gonna switch to the Mets game if it doesn’t go smoothly.

  5. flairforthedramatic

    I said Nastia was going to win it too. That girl is niiiice.
    And how bout Phelps? The guy just looks like a fish.

  6. thekfny28

    Phelps is unbelievable. Nastia is very good, but really they all are. But I like Shawn. She’s so cute and innocent, and I like that for some reason.

  7. flairforthedramatic

    Lol. Nastia looks like she has that inner strength, which I admire. She’s always so focused and determined.

  8. thekfny28

    Yeah, she is. *siigh* xP

    I don’t know why I like sharing my inner thoughts to strangers, but what the hell, right?

  9. flairforthedramatic

    Lmao. It’s ok.
    I’m really hoping the Yanks win tonight. Another loss would be brutal… beyond embarrassing.

  10. thekfny28

    What has that have to do with Shawn Johnson? xP jk

    I’m assuming you have a bf for no reason really.

    Anyway, yeah, I’d have to agree with that. If we don’t gain at least a game in the standings our season is over… it’s so hard to admit it.

  11. flairforthedramatic

    I don’t but yeah… I will probably go Paul O’Neill status tonight and smash something in my house if the Yanks play crappy some more.

  12. levelboss

    alright peoples, let’s do dis!
    6.5 out in the wc.. still time technically.. if they’re going down, they need to go down swinging!

  13. flairforthedramatic

    I don’t know what’s up with the name change but yeah… Hey level. Rain delay is halting the game. Seems you’re optimistic.

  14. thekfny28

    That’s pretty funny. In the middle of a conversation your name changes from Vanessa to nyychick21. That’d make for a great commercial.

  15. levelboss

    kid, i think Shawn Johnson’s pretty cool.. she has a nice attitude and solid skills.. Nastia Liukin looks so serious and anxious.. Sacramone slipped off the balace beam – the US team claims China cheated some how

    but i’d say Shawn Johnson is my favorite

  16. thekfny28

    Yes, well, f4td is certainly better than nyychick21, but at least I could call you “nc” or “chick” or something. I can’t exactly call you “f4” or “td”.

  17. levelboss

    Vanessa (or nyychick21 or f4td), it looks bad for our heroes, but you never know.. Tampa Bay and/or Boston could pull a NY Mets and lose their playoff spot like last year

    if the Yankees can get to about 3 games out from Boston, then they would have a chance.. the yankees play Boston 6 more times this year

  18. flairforthedramatic

    Or you just call me Vanessa.
    And Sacramone was pretty upset after she pretty much ruined it for team USA. I felt sorry for her.

  19. levelboss

    Kid, i gotta be careful about what i say.. those gymnasts are pretty young.. i don’t want to sound perverted (not saying you sound perverted, because you’re probably a kid yourself, Kid)

  20. flairforthedramatic

    You’re right level. It is very much possible that the Yanks can come back from this deficit but it feels a lot more like impossible with the way they’ve been playing.

  21. thekfny28

    The Yankees certainly have the talent to come back.
    I am a kid, but please don’t call me Kid. It’s EJ.
    I wouldn’t say Shawn is my “dream girl” or anything, and I’m certainly not “obsessed” yet, though I am closer to “fascinated”.

  22. levelboss

    yeah, too many injuries, too little action, too late in reaction
    but you never know.. you could be talking about this year the way the Yankees came back from far back late in the year to win the World Series

  23. levelboss

    EJ, it was funny last night.. they did a feature on Shawn Johnson in her town in Iowa, and they showed her driving a car.. it looked like a ten-year old was driving! lol she’s short enough that it looked strange to see her driving

  24. flairforthedramatic

    Easy there EJ.
    And HEY, I’m short as well [not as short as her but close] so no laughing at short people driving lolz.

  25. flairforthedramatic

    Lol haha. That pic is kind of funny. Whoever changed the cap should of changed the jersey too. A Bosox cap and pinstripes does not match.

  26. levelboss

    i think the Yankees will acquire Sabathia in the off-season.. then it would be.. Sabathia, Wang, Chamberlain, Moose, and Hughes – not bad

  27. flairforthedramatic

    I don’t know if I necessarily want to see CC really in pinstripes but I guess there aren’t much better options for starter.

  28. flairforthedramatic

    Kay just stated that the Royals have lost 7 of their last 8… great, I guess that means they’ll smack the Yanks.

  29. thekfny28

    I like Aviles’ stance. It looks like the batting stance of a great hitter. The big hitters usually– nice K, two away– have those wide stance where they wave the bat high in the air.
    Out number 3.

  30. levelboss

    i’m guessing that Texas will win 2 or 3 against Tampa Bay this weekend.. the Yankees have got to get a win streak going here

  31. thekfny28

    Damn, we can’t score a run for our lives.
    Anyway, my laptop disconnected RIGHT when I was close to finishing K-Rod, so I’ll just do Hammer now.

  32. flairforthedramatic

    The game is only in the 2nd inning and I’m already falling asleep watching it. I think that’s a record.

  33. flairforthedramatic

    It probably did. I didn’t think they would demote Melk… maybe sit him. Robbie was probably very surprised. He doesn’t have his buddy now.

  34. thekfny28

    Man, our incapability to score is unbearably annoying. Just ONE run? Please? It’s embarrassing. Have they all forgotten how to hit? Hell, I’d hit better.

  35. levelboss

    they should’ve demoted Melky a long time ago.. i think it would’ve helped Robbie, Melky, and the Yankees overall

  36. flairforthedramatic

    i think everyone is thinking that level. melk was just horrible at the plate. any other player [i.e. duncan, gardner, etc] would’ve been demoted without hesitation.

  37. flairforthedramatic

    viagra yankees – LOL
    yeah, even if pettitte threw a no hitter tonight, the yankee offense would still be the story because it probably still wouldn’t have scored a run.

  38. thekfny28

    That’s practically a PERFECT rendition of Pujols as a Ray. If Pujols were traded to Tampa Bay, MLB’d take that picture and put on the 40-man roster.

  39. flairforthedramatic

    I think I’m going to have to end this in-gamer early tonight. There’s not much to talk about this game. I have some things to take care of before tomorrow so I’ll cut this one short. Thanks a lot for stopping by EJ and Level. 🙂

  40. flairforthedramatic

    You should make a post with the pictures of what you think the perfect team/lineup would consist of in Yankee uniforms.
