Today was a very enjoyable day, my bro lucked out and had tickets to the night game, so jealous right now. :P

In terms of trades there is really no one left out there that I see making sense, given what other teams would want. It sucks since they really could use another starter but its just a weak market this year.

I for one actually think the WS is going to be Pirates vs Indians, thank you. :P

Why would you ask this in a yankees thread? Go troll somewhere else

Unless Felix decides he doesn't like all of the rain or the Marlins realize they won't be able to keep Johnson anyway, I don't want the yankees to try to make a "splash" with a pitcher. It would stink to see us not add any pitching help, but it would stink even more if we traded a top prospect for a pitcher who won't come in and be an ace.

Agreed. Regarding Johnson his injury issues scare me so much I wouldn't give up what the Marlins asking price would be. Though he is most likely out for the year last I heard so its a bit of a mute point. I'd go nuts trying to pry Felix away from Seattle but they seem to be legit when they say they aren't considering moving him.

http://riveraveblues...triple-a-53435/

Via Jack Curry, the Yankees are promoting Manny Banuelos to Triple-A Scranton for his next start. Curry says this will help the Yankees determine if he’s a viable big league option later in the season, so it doesn’t sound like a one-time spot start. Banuelos’ season stats are in the sidebar, an he’s struck out 38 in his last seven starts (35 IP). There aren’t many 20-year-olds in Triple-A, Manny’s way ahead of the curve.

Haven't seen the Yanks win a game like this in while. Really gutted it out. Great performance by the bullpen, especially Rafael Soriano's performance. Hopefully he can be a factor going forward. We got first place, no let's not give it back!

What a crazy game...3 grand slams, 1st team ever to do that in 1 game! Posada playing his original position from his minor league days makes a hilarious, powerful, off target throw from second to Swisher at first to end the game!

BIGGGGG things from tonight, what a great game... down 1-7 in the 5th inning, no less.

On another note, can we please get AJ out of the lineup? maybe one more chance but all he is doing is proving how much of a scrub he is. He is seriously sooooooo difficult to watch.

CC
Nova
Hughes
Colon
Garcia

And when we get to the playoffs, leave either one, or both (Garcia, Colon) out

Yeah, AJ is complete garbage (and I'm still not buying the story he and Girardi tried to sell after his last temper tantrum) and I can't see him anywhere on the post season roster. Really his only purpose at this point would be to help eat innings in the 5 game series against the Orioles...but this storm is really going to screw things up.

The Yankees asked the Orioles and MLB to have the doubleheader on Friday as opposed to Saturday since there is a strong chance both games on Saturday and the game on Sunday get rained out...but for whatever reason the Orioles and MLB denied the request. If those 3 games get rained out, then we'd have to hope they can fit one of them in on a doubleheader on Monday but that still leaves a huge problem. The Yankees only have two off days the rest of the year, both involving traveling across country, and they don't return to Baltimore again. I suppose MLB could have them make up the 2 games at the end of the year but in that case I can't see the Yankees fielding anything more than the September call ups and normal back ups since they'll want to rest their regulars. It would suck if that impacts the division race.

I really wish that I could have watched that game. It seemed insane how they stormed back from down 7-1 and eventually just ran a way with it.
It's a shame Hughes had such a bad outing, I was really starting to think that he was getting back into form.

As usual AJ Burnett implodes once one thing goes wrong - I wonder how he chooses to show up Girardi tonight?

You know, I've had a lot of patience with AJ this year, but this is really getting ridiculous. It's almost become a self-fulfilling prophecy every time he pitches. People expect him to fail, so he does. Unless, he somehow gets his act together and get just completely shuts down the rest of his competition the rest of the year, there is no way he even sniffs the playoff rotation (He'll be in the bullpen only because his contract basically forces him to be on the ML roster). I think Girardi and the Yankees are smart enough to look away from the the money for two seconds and realize this.

I think Girardi and the Yankees are smart enough to look away from the the money for two seconds and realize this.

I'm quite tired so I would need to confirm this later but I believe they can leave him off of the 25 man post season roster and there should be no issue with his contract since he'd still be on the 40 man. I can't envision any way he gets his sh!t together to be a rotation option and at this point I don't see any use for him in the pen.

I'm really pissed about how the Orioles handled this weather issue and the Yankees seem to be as well. Not only did they refuse the double header today and decided to hope to get it in on Sunday now, the Orioles want the Yankees to play the final make up game on September 8 AND at 7 PM - for reference the Yankees play September 7 at home against the Orioles at 1 then have to fly out to Anaheim for a night game on the 9th. I hope the Yankees fight tooth and nail on this. Hell, either make them play the make up game at Yankee stadium and split the gate, or fvck the Orioles back over and forfeit the game so they lose money. fvck the Orioles organization, the way they handled this was completely unprofessional but I guess that should be expected from a third rate organization.
