Yankee Bridge "Dive, dive..."
Gotta love how every Yankee addition has been terrible for us except for Trevino, but it’s only a matter of time for him. Meanwhile, Mancini hitting dingers for Houston and Montgomery shutting us down. Yanks toast unless Stanton can come back and light a serious fire under the teams arse
I mean Stanton is getting paid 30 mil a year. Id hope so/
And has an "attendance" track record
Doesn’t stop Cole, who makes 36, from performing terribly lol
This team is still on pace to win 100 games.. if you include the first month of next season
Lineup full of overpaid mediocre players that don’t care whether they win or lose. Gave up after the top of the 8th down by 1 with the top of the order coming up. Any playoff team would love to face the Yankees first round
Maybe step back and go touch some grass for a bit. You're unhinged.
He isn’t being unhinged. There are flaws in the team and the starting pitching is weak.
Oh, no. Not at all. Repeating yourself over and over again and screaming "Karma! You fucking love to see it" when an umpire takes one off of the mask isn't unhinged at all. Completely normal behavior.
You’d only say that on the internet. Go talk to a fan in real life.
I go to between 12-15 games a year, and have done so since Mattingly's rookie season. I speak to fans all of the time -- whether that be at the game or via the numerous friends that I've made doing so over the years. Normal fans see an ump get smoked and struggle to stay on his feet, and there's usually a hush over the section as people look on to see if he's ok. There are always small pockets of morally decrepit ghouls that cheer on this sort of thing. If that's you, hey... congrats.
What’s most frustrating is we have been beating ourselves A LOT this stretch. Sometimes we’ll get outclasses, and that’s okay. But making errors in the field, not hitting situationally, throwing center cut pitches in 0-2 situations. That’s what’s frustrating. If we just played decent baseball, we actually sweep this series, not get swept.
Leaving runners on base seems to be a huge issue.
Always been the issue.
I’ve been betting $ on the Yankees opponent each game for the past two months.
Their complete gutless choke job the last few weeks has been quite lucrative. It boggles the mind how many people still think they can win games with any regularity. I doubled my money today even though everyone on the planet should’ve known that they were going down in flames.
They were the ultimate frauds the first 10 weeks of the season. Hopefully the sports betting community doesn’t realize this until I’ve been able to make some more cash.
Yep need to take a break watching this team for my health. Once the curse of me watching them has lifted and they start winning again I’ll test out following
First round exit
Yankees look like the worst team in the MLB right now.
Sunday is supposed to be the day of rest but instead this game made it a day of stress
Why isn’t Matt Blake getting any grief for this shit too lol
This team fucking blows, how the mighty have fallen
16 hits and taking a fat ass L. Team full of losers they’ll never win a ring
Bro shutuppp lmaoooo
Welp. Onto the next series. Regroup and continue forward. All we can hope for boys.
Idk man. This team.......this fucking team
You shouldn’t be losing a game in which you scored 9 runs! I mean the Cardinals are a solid club but a 12 run sweep the New York Yankees level club?… well I guess they are.
This pitching implosion is hard to watch. Hope they figure it out fast!
Cashman getting fucking embarrassed two days in a row. Fuck him and his supporters
100% agreed. Gonna gag if hear Michael Kay make excuses for him tomorrow and talk about how he’s family to the Steinbrenners.
Look, this team has good players. It has great players. Both pitchers and position players. On paper it’s certainly got to be one of the best two teams in the game. But it just doesn’t get things done. That dawg in them isn’t here anymore and the longer we play like garbage the worse it gets for these guys.
This team needs to wake the fuck up
They should be fucking ashamed of themselves. Fuck this trash ass pitching staff and especially fuck Brian Cashman
Unfortunately I was right. I said they would get swept yesterday. :-(
Apparently can't beat good teams. GG. We go again.
If this team doesn’t win 100 games Cashman and his people have to go, start hiring other people already, the ones in the front office are all fucking idiots.
DJ continuing to rake as long as no one is on base for him.
Thanks. Been terrible
Dont know how this incompetent fraud Cashman still has a job time and time again. Imagine where we’d be if he didnt make the glaringly obvious choice of drafting Judge back then. Even he wasnt stupid enough to fumble that one. But imagine where we’d be without him on the roster? What would you cashman lovers say then?
We get all the right runs in all the wrong places
How typical that we score the 9th run after our trade acquisition blows 3 runs. This team fucking sucks
“Going into todays game the Yankees were 87-1 when scoring 8 runs or more. Now they’re 87-2”
That’s too many to be just this season, and too few to be all time, is this supposed to be a real stat or a joke?
Carp bomb incoming.
2 straight 3 strike K’s for judge vs flamethrowers
We’re in a funk. Still leading the division. They’ll snap out if it.
Offense was good it was the bullpen that hurt us we needed luis Custillo badly and we blew it
*Maybe* they'll snap out of it. 40+ games is more than a funk.
Bullpen keeps fucking it up for us man
I mean the starter was pretty terrible today too.
DJ is such a joy to watch man
DJ does not get that same pitch if this game is still 9-8
Of course we get to 9 here. Lmao
After his horrific offseason in which he passed on several difference making SS, 1B and P and made an unbelievably bad trade with Minn, I dubbed this season the Brian Cashman Farewell Tour. With the good consolation prize of Rizzo and happy accident of Trevino and a historically great Judge season, nobody was happier then me when we played over our heads in the first half despite basically trotting out a lot of the same mediocre players from 2021.
After a horrific trading deadline in which he somehow managed to make the team worse, I hope the writing is on the wall. I'll accept that we play to the actual talent Cashman has assembled the rest of the way if it means HE IS GONE and we can get about actually producing a winner.
My god you people are laughable. The monty trade hurt the deadline but the deadline was still good. You people
Just like to bitch about anything. He could have traded for Soto and Castillo and you’d still bitch
Imagine having 16 hits and losing the game
We scored off of the most un hittable RP in baseball and it doesn’t matter because effross sucks
Jesus might forgive, but really do we have to have religious messages at a ballgame?
Our goofy organization plays Kate Smith’s shitty “God Bless America” every game like it’s fucking 1945.
No, they don’t play Kate Smith’s version when it was discovered she was a racist. That change was made last season, they now play the late opera singer Robert Merrill’s version of the song. Equally ridiculous…
When you own the Cardinals, you can decide what they put up in their stadium
certainly! but I can comment on it, and not like it.
DJ went 0-3 with RISP and stranded 8 runners today but also had 2 doubles and a homer. What a weird game and season for him
One of those he was forced to swing at a garbage pitch because it was previously called a strike, so not much he could’ve done in that one
That shoulda been the usual game tying DJLM homerun in the 9th
Yankees tie it!!!!
DJ saves the HR free series
i really was hoping we wouldn’t score the previously game tying run
I hope Cashman steps on a lego
Horrible deadline by Cashman. Him being the GM after this season is inexcusable.
Cmon fuck you effross. This game was right there for us but you let the horrible hitter do it
Yanks had no one better than Effros last inning? Same as the last 20 years essentially. A staff of 5 inning starters and even the greatest pen in the world leads to caca more often then not.
He’s supposed to be good, just had a bad day
DJ is just a warrior. Love him
DJ keeping us alive.. let's go!!
I know we're mad and there were even better moves on the table, but Cashman made objective upgrades at the deadline.
Benintendi is better than Gallo, there's no debate. Montas is better than most of our staff, there's no debate. Effross is better than at least half our pen.
It's not his fault they all decided to fall flat on their faces as soon as they put on pinstripes. Blame the fucking players for once.
He does the same thing he always does. Bargain shops without getting difference makers.
Thank you dj
If you have nine runs and can’t win the game what is going on
And last night, the pitching held them to 1 and the offense couldn’t do shit. It’s all bad right now.
Wasting another great game from DJ
Well that would’ve been exciting had our bullpen not completely shit the bed last inning
Would’ve been a tied game rn……………. **FUCK**
Good thing we’re tied now!
Damn that woulda been tie game
Lol. I promise this somehow ends 12-11 hmm?
Maybe I’m a doomer but I’m howling at getting owned in all 3 games by Paul Dejong, that’s just comedy
Just do that 4 more times
Well at least it's 12-9 now.
Imagine this team without DJ and Judge this past month
Wow imagine if we had kept it a 1 run game…oh
Hey we hit a home run in the series
Hey we tied it!!!!
HERE COMES THE COMEBACK BOIS AND GALS
Knew they would score the 1 run they needed prior
Hahahahaha of course
I love you, DJ
Efross can fuck off back to Chicago fuck him. Mother fucker.
and that would’ve tied the fucking game
Montas - Trash, Effros - Trash, Bennintendi - Underperforming, Bader - Injured.
Great moves Cashman!
Trade deadline acquisitions, not free agency.
Has anyone thought about pitch calling? Do we even know if these catchers work with the pitchers at practice?
Effross blew this one big time man
If they keep pitching him in high leverage he’s going to have a nervous breakdown on the mound. He’s not cut out for a pennant race.
Don’t worry guys I’m sure boone will just rest judge in the next game
# HOME RUN!
DJ LeMahieu homers (12) on a line drive to left center field.
Pitch from Ryan Helsley: 2-2 Slider @ 90.3 mph
Hit by DJ LeMahieu: Launched 105.7 mph at 19° for a total distance of 395 ft
Top 9 - 12-9
FIRE Cashman! Blackmail Hal into selling this team
Milwaukee may have a fire sale after this year and I wouldn't be shocked if they considered trading one of Burnes or Woodruff because they're getting too expensive for them. If so, we better be all fucking over that.
Edit: I know we won't though and will just settle for another shitty pitcher like Bumgarner who makes massive money
I think we would actually be all over that though, maybe wishful thinking
deGrom with 12K through 5.2 perfect innings. Imagine that?
His last start he got through 5 innings in like 50 pitches too
What’s the last time we used the best available in the lineup for a whole series? Someone’s getting a rest day EVERYDAY.
Cashman runs the Yankees like we're the Oakland A's.
Not too related but does anyone else fucking hate the camera angles from Busch Stadium? Every one of them seems so off
9 game home stretch later this month against Toronto, Tampa, and the Mets. We will be lucky to win 3 of those 9 games at best
Yeah I think we over achieved in the first half. I have no problem with the doomers spelling disaster cause we’ve been ass recently
15 hits 8 runs and a loss. Pitching is terrible. Cashmans deadline moves all stink. Benny is like 3 for infinity. Montas gets shelled. The two relievers are shaky at best.
Seeing Rage Against The Machine tomorrow in NYC and the “machine” I will be raging against is Cashman and Hal.
DJ don't deserve your rage
Down by 4 now. 1-0 count. Marwin Gonzalez is 0 for his last thousand.
Marwin - “Let me just slap at this 101 fastball I know I can’t really hit and get outta here”
Yankees: player is underperforming his metrics and should return to form. 🧠
Cardinals: maybe putting Paul DEJONG in big moments will be good for his confidence 🥳 he’s a good pro
I’m about to go skydiving with no parachute
Is it just a law that if you get traded to the Yanks you suck it up?
Thanks again for the lovely weekend Cashman
not gonna win shit giving up 12 runs. jesus.
Jesus forgave errors, but will he forgive Ortiz for doing steroids?
Jesus is still getting to the bottom of it
Pepperidge Farm remembers
He’s getting to the bottom of it.
Ah I remember when we had a 14 game division lead. Good times
Wtf how is dejong the shittiest sl player ripping us so bad
He had been in the minors most of the year and started playing well down there. So he got the call back up
You are down 4 runs. You are Marwin Gonzalez. How the fuck don’t you take a strike?
Well good thing we kept it close so we have a chance now…oh…
I probably trust Marinaccio and Schmidt the most right now and they're both in AAA.
Great job, Cashman.
Between Mad Max and DeGrom today, they are absolutely fucking faces
Would be nice to have pitching like that.
How could Joey Gallo do this to us
9 and a half back really doesn’t seem so far away now.
Cashman really should have pursued Castillo.
I think most people agreed trading Volpe for Catillo wasn’t the move. That’s what it would have cost.
They didn't want our prospects, why can't people reconcile that?
Prettay prettttay bad
Good thing Cashman went cheap during the trade deadline, wouldnt want to get any GOOD players!
And we're about to go down to single digits in the division.
Where's all the people that kept bragging our 16 game lead?
Guys remember it's okay. Best record in the AL remember. Guys remember 10 game (bout to be 9.5) game lead in the division guys. Guys it's okay we got rid of Gallo guys we're good guys.
Ron was sent down and Robertson is not an Yankee because of Cashman’s ego
And we’re stuck with him until the day he wants to retire…
Could've signed Scherzer, Correa, Marte, Seager, etc. for nothing but money.
Instead, Cashman cheaped out, made an atrocious trade for a washed up 3B making $25 mil a year, and flushed out all the pitchers in the fucking farm for fucking 2nd tier players.
Thats the thing though, he didnt even cheap out... he decided to take on a $25M contract for a 97 wRC+ player so he could offload Gary and stupidly blocked us out for the bevy of premier players that were on the market this offseason
And didn’t get Castillo, but the money part is likely on Hal, a guy who only owns the Yankees because he inherited the team from his daddy, doesn’t have 1% of the passion George had.
Comes from the top with bitch ass hal wanting his 10th pleasure yacht instead of a ws team
Could have gotten Verlander too but I guess we didn’t know he’d still be this good
I posted here after Effross’s first appearance that it was blatantly obvious he did not have what it takes to be a high leverage reliever on a contender. I had never seen a pitcher look *that* nervous, ever. He nearly had a panic attack on the mound.
I took a lot of shit here for that comment. And I understand it seemed reactionary at the time. But I genuinely believe he doesn’t have the makeup to pitch when it matters. And I do not trust him on October.
You are going to keep getting shit because you are being a reddit psychologist.
It has nothing to do with being a psychologist. I was looking at a guy who everyone else saw was next level nervous. It was obvious to anyone who has ever interacted with humans.
He does not have the makeup to pitch in high leverage. It’s obvious to everyone but our scouts.
You are psychoanalyzing a guys ability to do his job based on a deep breath he took.
Peak reddit armchair moment
Yea. It’s just a “deep breath.” That’s it.
Did you check his zodiac sign? Maybe that can tell us more about if he's got what it takes.
I mean I gave up on this conversation when it was clear you were disingenuous. Carry on.
The Cardinals aren’t even fucking good outside of Goldy and Arenado, and they still embarrassed us this weekend. When is anyone in the media going to call out Cashman’s malpractice?
Yeah, the Cardinals defense with 5 gold gloves, three hall of gamers, and a batting order that can destroy anyone, but they suck? The Yankees are still in first by 7 1/2 games. Calm down.
They Yankees nearly have $100 million more in team salary this year. The Cardinals are playing great for a team with so many injuries this season. Don’t be such a cocky shit
Are you unwell, they're literally first in their division with MULTIPLE Hall of Famers on the team right now and several gold/platinum glovers.
They play in the shittiest division in baseball. They’d be 10 games under if they had to play in our division.
Look at the schedule they play just in the last month. The Braves, Dodgers, Phillies, Braves agin, Yankees. And their division always plays them hard. They're battle tested and finally healthy...for the first time all year other than a couple of starting pitchers.
It's okay to just admit you don't know baseball.
They have a top 10 offense. They're good.
The cardinals have a .551 winning percentage and are 1st in the NL Central. You thought they were bad? Really?
