They should have left the tarp on the field.

I'm not going to explain it to you if you can't see it.

Example 1:

A-Rod is being roasted and toasted in the media and only Girardi has said anything.

Papi is being called out for having a horrible season hitting the ball, but you can read many of teammates sticking up for him.

When ARod gave that press conference after the PED stuff came out the whole team was there with him.

Let's hope he keeps it up. He seems to have potential from what I've heard.

So am I wrong in saying that maybe the fact is Varitek knows how to pitch us? We just seem so weak against the Sox. How times have changed.

Varitek knows how to call a good game and handle the staff (except Wakefield). The Red Sox scouting has gotten better over the years, so that comes into to play as well.

But it all comes down to the pitcher and Lester is hitting his spots tonight.

Haven't watched the Yanks much besides the Sox games, but man does Jeter look like he's wearing down.

He's had a particularly bad night in the field.

Matsui has been hot as of late.

Hopefully Posada is alright.

I'm surprised Tito is bringing Papelbon in. Must not trust Okajima.

At least the top of the lineup after Berroa next inning.

LOL it would be funny if they pinch-hit Pena for Berroa.

I'd like to see Pena up in that spot. He has hit the ball well.

Aceves did a nice job. One bad pitch. But he hung in there and saved the bullpen.

Papelbon better get that WHIP down or his ERA's not going to keep matching it. Too bad they weren't the ones to take advantage cause they can't get a hit w/RISP to save their ****ing lives.

What makes it worse was they had the guys up who you want batting in those situations and they couldn't get the job done.

This is beyond embarrassing. Note that by all accountd George Steinbrenner's favorite Yankee is Paul O'Neill. Paul O'Neill is a YES employee and broadcaster.

Today's Daily News-

Someone up in the Bronx has to grow some common sense pronto .

Tuesday, May 5th 2009, 12:42 AM

Considering the peculiar media vibe floating around those empty seats inside Yankee Stadium, Joe Girardi's Sunday soliloquy about the publishing industry, specifically Selena Roberts' book on Alex Rodriguez, was not surprising.

Girardi sounded like someone looking to control something he has absolutely no business controlling. This urge to play King Fool may have filtered down from the Yankees' high command.

After all, the suits are already putting the squeeze on the electronic media. In terms of access and money, life is being made uncomfortable.

The campaign may not be totally adversarial. It's part of Yankee brass' obvious strategy, authored by Bombers COO Lonn Trost, of wringing every penny out of the new building. It could also be a miscommunication of security policy. Or maybe it's just stupidity.

The latest episode came during the weekend series with the Angels. Paul O'Neill, a revered former Yankee, now an analyst for the Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network, was asked by security to leave the indoor batting cages, where he was watching Yankees hit, prior to one of the games.

A security guard told O'Neill, the man George Steinbrenner called "warrior," he could not loiter in the area. O'Neill had another reason to be perturbed. Security would not allow his wife, Nevalee, into the Stadium "wives room." She was told by security it was for "current" wives only.

Think about it. Here's O'Neill, a guy who bled for the franchise, trying to prepare for a broadcast. Not only is he told to take a hike, so is his wife. O'Neill was not the only broadcaster ejected from a part of the Stadium over the weekend.

The Angels bring multiple announcers (including voices who work Spanish language broadcasts) on the road. The mouths rotate between radio and TV. At times, some of them are not on the air. During those breaks, they need a place to watch the game. There were two empty Stadium broadcast booths during the series. Angels voices, not on the air, used one of them to chill.

Until they were booted by security.

The Angels broadcasters were told they weren't allowed to sit in the empty booth. When asked Monday if the voices had been mistaken and were sitting in a private box reserved for patrons, an Angels source said: "No, it was a broadcast booth." When asked if security invited the broadcasters downstairs to sit in those empty seats behind the plate, the source laughed and said, "no."

The announcers wouldn't be able to expense one of those $1,000-plus seats. Still, when it comes to the electronic media, money is an issue. Yankees suits, according to industry sources, have increased the fee they charge local TV outlets to do live reports inside the Stadium. Earlier in the season, sources put the price at $4,000 a pop. After negotiations the price has dropped.

Networks already are paying billions to MLB for TV rights fees. When these networks, or a local TV station, broadcast a game, they also must pay the home team a "park and power" fee. The fee is paid so a network can park its trucks outside the Stadium, "plug in" and transmit the telecast.

Network sources say they are being asked to pay the Yankees a much higher fee (about $12,000 per game) to "park and power" than they did at the old Stadium. The charge in the old building was around $3,000. The price hike is not sitting well with the networks. Some of the suits, convinced the Yankees are price-gouging, have taken their case to MLB. The situation has yet to be resolved. (The Mets currently are in negotiations over their "park and power" fee at Citi Field, which also was increased).

Some outlets use walkie-talkies for internal communication during a broadcast. A source said the Yankees want these outlets to now pay to use their equipment and frequency. Part of the reason for this is that the Yankees claim "other" walkie-talkies interfere with their "wireless food service."

Recently, when one broadcast crew tried using its own walkie-talkie inside the new Stadium, the frequency was jammed.

The Yankees also insist broadcast outlets use their microphones to pick up game audio. Some networks are not thrilled with the quality of the audio produced by Stadium mikes.

Even during Steinbrenner's most manic times, he was not inclined to engage in this kind of media strategy. The Boss would be more direct, like telling his Al Yankzeera puppets to keep Don Zimmer off camera. Or instructing his PR man to prohibit Tony Kubek, the former Yankees shortstop and MSG contrarian, from interviewing any of his players.

The approach now is different. O'Neill watching batting practice is a security issue. Angels voices in a vacant booth are a threat to the Yankees empire. Broadcast crews, like fans, pay much more to enter. Then there's Girardi's meteoric ascent to literary critic.

Plenty of material.

For another book.

What a f'n joke. The Yankees need to lighten up and not take themselves too seriously.

Paul O'Neill was a leader for this team during one of their greatest runs. The guy made one of the best catches ever tracking down that line drive in Game 5 1996 on a bum leg. Now the Yankees are banning him and his wife from certain areas of the Stadium?

What an embarassment.

Let's hope Joba can hold them at four and eat up innings.

If there is something Joba is good at, it's eating.

It took a perfect relay from the Red Sox to get Melky. I can't freak out about him trying for three there.

Jeter, Damon and Teixiera. I guess Damon.

I would be pumped up about Joba's performance, except that he gave up 5 hits and 4 runs before he even got an out.

Michael Kay tends to go a bit overboard.

If the score stays 4-3 and the Yanks lose, it won't matter. Can he build on it in future starts? Sure, but overall it has to be a disappointing night.

Oh and no one will get hit because Josh Beckett doesn't throw at people.

Didn't he throw at Bobby Abreu's head a few weeks ago to start a bench clearing brawl?

NEW YORK -- As a result of his high-wire, 32-pitch save on Monday, Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon was reduced to spectator status for Tuesday night's contest at Yankee Stadium.

Though Papelbon is 7-for-7 in save opportunities this season, he has had quite a few laborious outings along the way.

Slowly but surely, Papelbon -- who has worked a lot on mechanics the past few weeks -- feels that things are clicking back in for him.

I thought I heard no on the FAN today.

Thanks.

The Red Sox take advantage of the breaks their given, the Yanks don't. That's why the Sox are the better team.

I noticed that Tito had Bay steal. Maybe Girardi could pick up a few tips. I think he could have sent Jeter in the seventh.
