NFT: Rubber Game // 6.14.17 // NY Yankees vs Angels // 10:07PM ET

Anando : 6/14/2017 9:52 am
NYY: Pineda (7-3 , 3.39 ERA)
vs
LAA: Shoemaker (6-3 , 4.22 ERA)

Quote:

Pineda (7-3, 3,39 ERA) has been consistently good all season, giving up three earned runs or fewer in 10 of his 12 starts. He is 1-1 with a 7.50 ERA in two career starts against the Angels, but they will be facing a different Pineda than they've seen in the past.

Matt Shoemaker (6-3, 4.22 ERA) will start for the Angels, and set to face the Yankees for the third time in his career. He lost both previous starts, giving up six runs and 15 hits in 13 1/3 innings.


Disappointing loss last night (as OP of the thread, I'll take responsibility), but streak was bound to end at some point.

Tonight should hopefully be a bounce back with our favorable pitching matchup. As mentioned above Shoemaker (while having a decent season) has not matched up well with the Yanks in the past.

From Yankees.com:

Things to know about this game:

Pineda notched 22 called strikes in his last start -- a 7-3 win over the Red Sox last Thursday night at Yankee Stadium -- with 14 of those coming on first-pitch fastballs to tie a career high. He worked seven innings, allowing a run on four hits while walking two and striking out eight.

Shoemaker defeated the mighty American League West-leading Astros, 9-4, last Friday night in Houston, allowing four runs on seven hits, walking one and striking out four in seven innings. He's allowed 14 runs and 34 hits in his last six starts over 36 1/3 innings.

Talk about a difference in two seasons. The Yankees were 31-31 last year after 62 games, in fourth place, 5 1/2 games out of first place in the AL East.

Wtf Didi?



How was that Didi's fault lady?


Because he is suppose to be looking at the ball. (First base with a runner in front of him)It was a ground ball not a line drive. Announcers both agreed.


Shuttup. He was looking. The ball was laced and took a hop.

You really are the worst. I thank the BBI gods that your existence is allowed on this site. ::eye roll::
Honestly, I don't think he was actually tagged  
Greg from LI : 6/15/2017 12:03 am : link
But it would never be overturned so it doesn't matter. Horrible decision to send him anyway.

Man, not even at the bag yet. I'm generally a fan of making the defense execute that play, but that one is a red light for me



Exactly. Truly awful.

Btw, no surprise because of the network, but between this crew and the Sciambi, Sutcliffe and Ross crew, baseball is on mute for me. Just terrible.
Didi misses a double by a whisker and then strikes out.

Yay Headley for tying the game

Boo for running yourself into an out in Little League fashion.
wonderful baserunning tonight

are we trying to cost ourselves 10 runs?
I'll take it from Headley

Makes sooooo many outs on the bases.

We'll take the tie, now let's start abusing this Angels bullpen.
At least the next Pineda outing will be

Didn't have anything close to his best stuff but ground out 6 innings.

Top of the order needs to get it done here.
tough call  
PaulBlakeTSU : 6/15/2017 12:34 am : link
regarding sending Judge. He's the kind of guy that when he gets accelerated, he can cover a lot of ground with those strides.

The LF received the ball before Judge touched third and I thought he was going to be out by a country mile, yet it ended up being a very close play at the plate even with a very good throw by Young (though he did double clutch).

Just because Judge was likely getting thrown out does not mean it was wrong to send him. It's like hitting on a 16 in blackjack when the dealer shows a 10. You're likely going to bust, but it's still the best decision.

It's worth knowing that if Judge holds up, it's bases loaded with two outs for Sanchez. Sanchez is hitting well this year, with an OBP of .365.

Also, according to data from 2000-2015, the chances of scoring at least a run with 2 outs and the bases loaded is 31.6%

Odds are, if Judge held up, the Yankees would not score because all baseball players make an out more often than they avoid an out.

So, using that, and considering that Sanchez is above average, it becomes a question of which was more likely: Young making a great throw and getting Judge, or Sanchez reaching base.

Simmons can really flash the leather. Another guy that the fans miss out on seeing because he plays for a non-contending West Coast team.
Wow great bunt by Hicks.

They're getting killed by Eric fucking Young in this series. It's like bizarro world.
They are probably saying the same thing

about Headley as we are about Young
Castro striking out on a terrible pitch?

Shocking
This entire fucking team is annoying the shit out of me

tonight as Castro ends a good AB by swinging at a horrendous pitch.
More to the point  
Greg from LI : 6/15/2017 12:53 am : link
3.2 IP by that joker Bridwell and one lousy run. Gotta do better than that against a crap pitcher.
Eric Young on base again...

Dropping two of three to this shitbag team is embarrassing

Worst lineup in the AM. Christ.
What a brutal series.

Doesn't help that Boston is fattening up against the shitty Phillies.
He gets 2 outs, then walks a guy batting .177.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 6/15/2017 1:00 am : link
When is Chapman coming back so we don't have to hold onto Betances for these save opportunities that never come?
And now I'll indulge in something I usually criticize  
Greg from LI : 6/15/2017 1:04 am : link
Tie game late on the road is when you put in the kid from AA? Odd decision.
Herrara???

That series sucked.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 6/15/2017 1:36 am : link
Pineda blew a 4 run lead in three frames and was his usual undependable self. The team made a bunch of outs on the basepaths. And EY Jr, who's barely a major leaguer at this point in his career killed them with his bat and glove.
Can't win

I've mentioned that before - we're a different team on the road than at home, for whatever reasons.
Pineda didn't pitch well  
Greg from LI : 6/15/2017 8:20 am : link
But Sanchez and Holliday bear most of the blame for the last two runs he allowed.
Even with..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 6/15/2017 8:46 am : link
Pineda not doing well - the game was still tied after he was out.

We've made a couple mistakes the past two games - Carter the night before cost them.

It happens.
A lot of this gets fixed  
Kyle in NY : 6/15/2017 8:48 am : link
with Chapman's return. Too many games lost in the 7th or 8th inning lately. Getting Betances back in that role fixes most of that.

He's barely pitched, there just haven't been enough 9th inning opportunities. The downside of the defined closer role.
Herrera  
Percy : 6/15/2017 10:06 am : link
Didn't watch (too late for me), but why put in this loser into a tied game in the seventh? He has nothing as a pitcher -- or am I missing something? Anyway he proved to be a loser who lost this one for the Yankees.

Good grief, it was the kids first career MLB game and he had a tough one and lost. You've already branded him a loser? Stop it.

Classic. He didn't watch and has never seen the kid pitch in his life. Knows absolutely NOTHING about him. Yet, calls him a loser. Twice.

Not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, is he?
LOL..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 6/15/2017 11:19 am : link
fans can be such reactionary fuckheads.

A lot of the time.
Herrera looked every part  
RasputinPrime : 6/15/2017 11:44 am : link
of a kid in his first game. He doesn't have overpowering stuff either. The result wasn't a shock.

It's a long season. Let's bury the A's in what should be a slugfest.

What's also funny about the "loser" thing is that Herrera actually hadn't lost a game yet this year when they brought him up - at Trenton he was 7-0 with a 1.07 ERA.

Some "loser" ...
Herrera is 21 and had thrown all of 5 innings above AA before  
Greg from LI : 6/15/2017 12:18 pm : link
last night. He also, as has been stated already, is a guy who succeeds with guile and command rather than overpowering stuff. His adrenaline was pumping and he was overthrowing - you could see it. Led to him missing his spots.
Going back to Scranton right now early  
DennyInDenville : 6/15/2017 12:47 pm : link
Gonna watch BP, chat with players and leave in the 3rd inning to make it back for Yanks/As

I will pay extra close attention to Torres, Frazier, Austin, Bird, Fowler and Wade.
