– CC Sabathia did not play catch on the field, instead opting to give his tired left arm a little extra rest. The plan is that Sabathia will throw a light bullpen session tomorrow, dropping his workload from 45 pitches to 20-25, and then see how he feels. He continues to insist that he is pitching on Friday and Joe Girardi said he would expect the same if Sabathia gets through tomorrow’s bullpen fine.

– Johnny Damon is out of the lineup for one more night to protect his sore right calf, though he is available for pinch-hitting duties. Damon said he had plans of playing today and wanted to test the calf during batting practice but the Yankees medical staff was concerned that he still feels something in the calf.

— MLB has denied the Yankees’ formal protest of Sunday’s 6-5 loss to the Marlins, meaning it will remain just that, a loss. … The Yankees have talked about playing Hideki Matsui in the outfield during this series, but there are physical concerns about his ability to hold up for nine innings … Girardi said that Alex Rodriguez could rest one game of this series.

— Xavier Nady could realistically re-join the Yankees next week if all proceeds well at Triple-A … It sounds like Cody Ransom will be activated tomorrow with Angel Berroa leaving and Ramiro Pena staying on the roster. Girardi said the Yankees would make defense the priority in the Berroa-Pena decision.

With a third-inning double, Derek Jeter logged the 425th two-base hit of his career, surpassing Babe Ruth for sole possession of fourth place on the Yankees’ all-time list.

whoever is in favor of girardi being fired, say “I”

he has had many different chances to prove his place but he always fails. they lose 2 out of 3 to the worst team in baseball. thats just embarrasing. i am the biggest yankee fan out there and I say we need a change. we spent the most amount of money in the offseason and what do we have to show for it? being 5 games back from the ****** red sox!!! 2nd place is not acceptable with the money we spent. Burnett has to step up and so does Sabathia. Teixeria is doing fine and is holding his weight at the time. lets go yankees and win some ****** games!!!

This is exactly why Jeter was a poor choice to be captain. Does anyone think that Thurman Munson would have made such a statement?
Jeter portrays that “professional” attitude shared by many Yankees on those last championship teams. Guys like Tito, Paul, Mariano, etc. were the ultimate professionals who “got the job done” on the field. Torre was the proper choice for a team like that. However, as guys retired and were replaced the “pro attitude” was still the norm, but the new guys didn’t get it done on the field. They didn’t perform on the field. Torre did not change his style and get in the face of his team, he just expected professionals to work it out and get it done. Well, it didn’t work out and he was gone.
Girardi was a poor choice to replace him. Instead of putting the hammer down on these under-performing veterans, he seems to just expect things to happen and everthing to work out.
These guys need a foot up their *ss, not a kind word. Just look at Cano and Melky. One sat down and the other sent down. Their doing fairly well this year.
Fire Girardi, Long, and Eilland. Their philosphy is a failure.
Time to bat Arod 7th, bench Swisher and Damon, play Melky and Gardner everyday, DH Posada, dump Tomko and Molina before the deadline, play Cervelli.
If you make these changes immediately, I think you’ll see the rest of the guys start to shape up nicely.

golden sombrero for Posada .. sadness :(

Like

Their catcher gets a double, a single and a home run and our catcher strikes out 4 times! Ridiculous. Posada really looks uncomfortable at the plate swinging at everything and anything. Other than the one inning Wang didn’t do badly and the bull pen has held the Braves except for the one home run. Only 4 hits for the Yankees and they are really looking as if they don’t want to win. There’s not a lot of hustle or energy or enthusiasm. Have the older guys quit playing for Girardi? It certainly looks like it. ARod is a total disaster right now. He better his game together soon. The Yankees should have got their runs in the early innings but left too many men on base. This looks like another lost series in interleague play. Gardner goes down looking. Wonderful.

Amen .. Swisher is a 3rs stringer yet batting second behind Jeter. Aroids is just showing me more and more why he needed to take the roids. Posada is at best a DH and should not call a game, Berroa and Ransom? Give me a break .. they couldnt make a high school team.

Great. Swisher grounds out. Hanson is terrible tonight and the Yankees can’t take advantage. Braves taking it to Wang. Swisher should be on the bench and pinch hitting and starting in the outfield occasionally. he’s not an everyday player. Need Nady back but his return is stalled for some reason. Is he ever going to get back? Gardner is not an everyday player either. Need to bring someone up and give them a chance or trade for a good outfielder. They should have traded for Cameron before the season started.

I don’t like the NL rule of no DH. Pitchers are not hitters usually and there’s a risk of them being hurt on base. Wang was lost for a bunch of games last year because he hurt his ankle running the bases. Prefer the American League DH. Hopefully the NL will change the rule soon. Sure out in the lineup usually. Not very exciting.

5 runners left on base in the first 3 innings. Wang, Mr. Inconsistent. 2 strike outs and then they hit him all over the park for 3 runs. Posada strikes out twice. Jeter’s double wasted. Hanson pitches around Tex because he’s not afraid of AROD and sure enough AROD strikes out and misses two pitches he should have hit out of the park. Desperate pitching and desperate hitting so far. Cano grounds out with runners on 2nd and 3rd. This is not good. The Yankees cannot beat teams under 500. They’re going to be caught soon by the Jays and are falling farther and farther behind the Sox.I have no confidence in this team right now to win one game of a series let alone two. We’re in trouble.
