Now that’s the Mo we all know and love. Unreal I am sitting here trying to figure out how this team is in a 1st place tie? Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

Like

Just heard Barry Larkin & Bobby Valentine say that AJ belongs in the postseason Yankee rotation. Do either of these two IDIOTS watch Yankee games EVER??? How can anyone with a minimum knowledge of baseball say that Bustnett belongs on a postseason roster?

Like

Finally Joe makes a move. Why did he bring him back in the 6th anyway? Any moron could see that AJ wasn’t getting it done. Is he trying to throw this game away? Now Logan comes in. You never know what this guy is going to do either. When Garcia comes back AJ needs to go to the pen. We don’t need him in the starting rotation. He won’t get it done in the regular season or the post season. I’d feel much more confident with Freddy than AJ.

Like

JOE did it. Brought Bustnett back in the 6th. Dummy. Now Burnett has a hitter who has one home run and 4 rbis on the year and he has pitched him 8 pitches and got the count to 3-2. He can’t put this guy away. He is obviously struggling. Does Joe want KC to get another couple of runs here and tie this up or go ahead? Wake up, Joe and manage.

Like

The Yankee manager is a MORON. My spouse is talking me out of driving up there to kick his @ss. What is this management trying to prove. Do they really want to win???

Like

Girardi you put that JOKE back in the game in the 6th inning and I’m driving the 200 miles to KC to kick your Italian @SS.

Like

More like the Jeter of old. Way to go, bro. Girardi, don’t put Bustnett back in the for the 6th inning. Would he really be that stupid? Well, you never know.

Like

We need to pick up a couple of runs here. Jete, please don’t hit into a DP. You do it too often. You can’t win these games when you don’t get RISP home.

Like

Another 5th inning meltdown by this $16 million JOKE. GET HIS @SS OUT NOW JOE. 9 hits vs. this sorry @ss team, are you kidding me? This Jerk could not get my deceased mother out. What a JOKE!!! But according you the Yankees DUMB @SS GM he’s a great pitcher.

Like

Way to go Joe. You thought you had to prove something and now KC has scored three runs and we’re losing the game. How long do we have to put up with this? Joe will not pull him out early. Lose a game and lose a series to a crappy team? I blame Girardi and Cashman as much as I blame Burnett. What has Burnett got on these guys?

Like

I mean this is a no brainer. The rest of the starters have produced, this guy is a 4 inning pitcher if that. STOP making excuses, send him to the pen then get rid of him.

Like

He’s a $16 million JOKE

Like

Cashman and Girardi can defend AJ all they want but he’s been crap in the starting rotation last year and this year. He goes along well for four or five innings then he has a melt down. It happens game after game. Is management trying to defend spending millions on this guy and hope one day he’s going to produce? It ain’t going to happen. Trouble is noone wants him. But make the tough decision and put him in the pen to pitch a couple innings.

Like

robert g. Bustnett is a *HIT pitcher. this guy has given up 8 hits to a no name lineup. He is a BUST, another one year pitcher that Crashman got sucker into signing. Stick his @SS in the bullpen for mop up duty and send his @SS packing in the off season. He’s a headcase and will NEVER get any better.

Like

dumb di## walks in a run. Wake up Joe and start managing the game before we lose this.

Like

Now he’s on the verge of walking in a run!

Like

Now he’s got bases loaded and 1 out. You could see it coming. He’s been off this inning. Can’t Joe see that? Is he going to leave him in and hope he can out of the inning with no runs? Come on Joe, go to the pen before we blow this game.

Like

Once AJ consistently gets behind in the pitch count watch out. Three straight balls and then has to catch up with 2 strikes and a .183 hitter gets a single. He misses the strike zone too often. Fortunately he hasn’t given up any home runs tonight–at least not yet! Don’t leave him in past the 5th Joe just based on history.

Like

It’s really annoying that every time AJ pitches the Yankees can’t score more than 2 or 3 runs and we expect Burnett to keep the opposition to 1 run or less in order to win a game. Sure Burnett has had a brutal inning in many of his starts but it’s always 4 or 5 runs but the Yankees never hit for him or get the runners home and usually we end up with fewer runs than the opposing team. We can’t put all the blame on Burnett every time he pitches. The offense needs to step up. Hey guys, this is a 1-8 no name pitcher. Why do we give him such credibility?

Like

Why is it every time this guy takes the mound I hold my breathe? OK Joe you have gotten him through 4, give him one more inning then get his @ss out.

Like

Not sure why Girardi uses Chavez so much at 3rd. I know he’s more experienced than Nunez but Nunez can hit the ball and except for his errors he does a pretty good job on defence. Chavez is not really producing at the plate and Nunez deserves a shot until ARod gets back.

Like

I don’t feel very confident going into tonight’s game with AJ even though he’s matched up with a guy whose record is 1-8. The Yankees never give him enough run support which is a problem but he generally has a bad inning that puts the Yankees in the hole and it’s usually the 4th or the 6th. If he pitches well up to the 6th Girardi needs to pull him andgo to the pen given his history. Anyway, we need to win this series or sweep if we are going to move ahead of the Sox.
