My heart can’t really take too much of that

    Heh, talk about instant analysis.

  2. Relaunch says:

    That was extremely tought to watch happen. Glad the ending was still good.

  3. dave says:

    i was flipping out, he always seems to lose his control vs the bosox

    but hey, he still did what he needed to do, i dont think mo wanted to lose that one for the yanks

  4. BigBlueAL says:

    I was calm the whole time…..

    • Steve says:

      Me too. To paraphrase General Custer, Mo had em right where he wanted em.

    • Joey says:

      same, just kept thinking if there was one person who could strike out the side for an inning its Mo. That, and the whole MO IS GOD thing. Ya know?

  5. Ivan says:

    That’s what makes Mo great. I tell ya this, wagner would of blew that game.

  6. mozes says:

    I need to go on the DL after that game!!

  7. Steve says:

    I can’t believe you people all got worried. And you call yourselves Yankee fans.

    Oh, ye of little faith.

  8. Alex says:

    Girardi looked absolutely beside himself throughout the 9th. I am buying the domain name IHateJoeBuckdotcom. That man is the most awful, melodramatic announcer in the history of broadcasting.

  9. Jamal G. says:

    Troy Tulowitzki has been placed on the DL and probably faces some discipline.

    “According to The Denver Post, Tulowitzki pounded a bat into the ground after he was replaced by Omar Quintanilla in the seventh inning of Friday’s game, slicing his palm.”


    Shit like that just can’t happen. I know some of you maybe quick to make the Jose Tabata comparison but Tabata is a 19-year-old in the Minor Leagues. Troy Tulowitzki is a Major League player who is officially a World Series veteran.

    • Steve says:

      Wonder if this is the final straw that gets them to pull the trigger on some deals and become sellers.

  10. mustang says:

    Wow… Mo has ice water for blood.
    I’m going to pick up the rest of my heart from the floor and take a nap or something.
    I’m too old for this shit.

  11. Bonos says:

    And the mighty machine scores two runs for the 29th time this year. That Giambi at bat was the stupidest piece of hitting I have seen in a long time. Going for the GS, the putz. Your team is 9 games out, the bases are loaded and a sinkerballer is pitching. I’m sorry, I’d park his butt on the bench and tell the beat writers why. Joe G has no jam, meetings be damned.

  12. Stephen says:

    The Yankees officially have one good catcher, if you combine Molina’s defense with Jorge’s offense.

    Anyway, the Yankees are a mediocre team, and probably will be for the rest of the season. 105 OPS+ and a 95 ERA+ going in to today. Yea, Arod and Posada’s absence affected the run scoring, but now with Damon and Matsui bein ghurt, I don’t think we can expect much.

  13. Jamal G. says:

    Danny Mac is having himself is second straight strong outing, 7.0-IP, 3-H, 0-BB, 7-K.

    I’ve been at the Stadium the past two days. Friday’s game pretty much sucked but they could have done it. Not a total blowout. Nothing like Yankee fans and RS fans in the narrow space of inner Yankee Stadium for a rain delay. How many times can drunks say, “You suck!” to each other. The whole Damon wall thing was unfortunate and crazy.

    Yesterday’s 9th almost felt like the Stadium was coming apart with the stomping and the screaming from Sux and Yankee fans. Where I was sitting (LB 456) people were losing their minds.

    The hitters were being more patient at the plate so it’s obvious something was said but both Jeter and Giambi disappointed. But you could tell something has been said. I think Girardi is losing his mind right now in a good way. He’s been far too accepting of total crap hitting far too long.

    As exciting as yesterday’s final 3 outs were, I could do with less of that. Had it gone the other way it would have been a crushing defeat. And coming so close to that was not fun.

  15. [...] Yankee to make an impact on this game was none other than Mariano Rivera. After giving Yankee fans a collective heart attack yesterday, Rivera rebounded with two scoreless innings. In a piece of high baseball drama, he [...]
