Game 156 Spillover Thread

By

The comments in the earlier thread are adding up, so use this one for discussion about tonight’s game.

Categories : Asides, Game Threads
  • Joey

    LOL at Yogi’s commentary when Mora got the hit: “Oh sh—-”

    • Joey

      nevermind, it was Whitey

  • A.D.

    Whitey was about to say “oh shit” and realized he was on a live mike

  • Chip

    Better get those guys out before they start swearing, they’ve just caught themselves a few times, I love it

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      They’re too old to give a shit. I bet the producers edited it out on the delay.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        Yup. I bet Yogi was trying to holla at Elston Howard’s daughter and shit.

        You get a certain age, you’re bulletproof.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Hey baby, you know what a Yogasm is? I can do great things with applesauce.

        • Joey

          lol, like in the movie “Waiting”

  • UWS

    Stupid ESPN guys keep interrupting them.

    Also, I strongly dislike Brian Roberts.

  • Mac

    What was that whole shot with O’Neill? Was he just walking through the crowd…?

  • Ivan

    It’s sure is great to listen baseball with Yogi and Ford.

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    Miller: “He had a no-hitter, and all of a sudden, he lost it… on the one hit he gave up!”

    HAHAHAHAH… you mush for brains.

  • UNION YES.

    Why do you dislike Brian Roberts?

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      Why not?

  • http://www.pinstripeprospectus.com Austin

    This is really going to suck if they lose tonight

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Nah, everyone will forget the result of the game in a month anyway. They’re remember Bernie and Yogi and all the bells and whistles.

      • UWS

        It really was an awesome ceremony.

        That was a great quote from Yogi: “I won’t miss this place because it’s a part of me.”

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          That’s awesome.

  • Ivan

    I wouldn’t be surprise if A-Rod is hitting on Howard’s daughter. You know how A-Rod like those MILF’s.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      She’s not old and wrinkly enough.

      • steve (different one)

        nah, he’s more into the female bodybuilder look, not old chicks. madonna just happens to be a little of both.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          Madonna’s not old-looking to you?

          She looks like a shar-pei.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Wow, the trolls really got to LoHud.

    • UWS

      ?

    • steve (different one)

      that place is awful

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        It’s even worse than usual tonight.

        • Mac

          Yeah, I was laughing my ass off about that a minute ago. It’s kind of hilariously bad this evening.

    • Chip

      Nothing is sacred anymore

    • http://www.pinstripeprospectus.com Austin

      I was on there earlier and saw them as well, I just don’t understand those idiots.

  • dan

    To add to my RA saga…. a different RA came in to watch a movie on the only TV in the dorm with cable. We got into a shouting match when she unplugged the cable and I put them back in. This was before I knew she was an RA. Now I’m in a different dorm watching.

    • A.D.

      fucking RAs on a power trip

    • Steve H

      Do you have running water there?

      • dan

        yes, why do you ask?

    • Joey

      lol, seriously, smack that bitch

      • dan

        its not even the same RA! theyre all fucked up

        • Joey

          huh, my RAs are all cool, leave me the hell alone. But we have TVs in all our rooms, in the living room, huge LCDs in the lobby. I guess I’m lucky

          • UNION YES.

            Damn. Where the hell do you go? At Plattsburgh we had the world’s first zenith.

            • Joey

              U of Central Florida, in Orlando

  • UNION YES.

    Has anyone ever noticed that Moose Skowron in his hayday looks like John C. Reilly?

  • Ivan

    It would be some funny shit if Jose Molina hits the last Homerun in Yankee stadium.

    • UNION YES.

      Yeah, It’d be better if it was Gardner.

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    Molina with a hit… By Mariano, we will not lose tonight.

  • Manimal

    Roberts is so friendly with all the yankees, why can’t we just trade for him. Or even make a 3 way send cano somewhere and Robets in return

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    JOHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNY DAMON!!!

    • Joey

      Teed that shit up

  • Manimal

    Damon. A true player. Why? Hes an ex redsox.

  • Ivan

    JOHNNY DAMON.

  • Joe B.

    Johnny!

  • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    idiots!

  • Chip

    Johnny wants to be the last one baby

  • steve (different one)

    damon has always come up big in this stadium.

    unfortunately, sometimes he wasn’t a yankee

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    A JAY-BOMB! FOR JAY-DAM!

    • Manimal

      Ehh, A for effort.

  • A.D.

    New candidate for last HR at the stadium

  • Steve H

    That’s the only way Matsui and Molina were going to round the bases

  • Manimal

    Stupid greek.

    • UNION YES.

      Reference to Markakis?

      • Manimal

        Yup.

      • steve (different one)

        don’t even acknowledge it

  • Joey

    A for effort Cap’n

  • steve (different one)

    a great yankee stadium HR.

    fitting

  • A.D.

    If Abreu made the play Markakis just did, I might have a heart attack

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      No kidding.

  • Will (the other one)

    The House that Damon Closed?

  • Ivan

    Damon is a lucky guy, to hit two famous hr’s for both the sox and yanks in yankee stadium.

    • UWS

      Two? I only recall tonight’s.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Game 7, 2004.

        • UWS

          I don’t know what you’re talking about. 2004 playoffs were canceled after ALCS game 3.

      • Manimal

        I hope your joking.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          Maybe he repressed the memory, like a shell-shocked Vietnam Vet or something.

  • Steve H

    Starting to get some good rips on this guy

  • steve (different one)

    i’ll tell you what would suck: if Millar hits the last HR.

  • UWS

    Waters wants nothing to do with ARod.

  • Ivan

    What the O’s got paid off not to allow A-Rod to swing the bat to hit the last Homer.

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    Can’t wait for ARod to have 4 walks and no official AB’s, so he can be booed for not hitting the ball…

  • Will (the other one)

    “No, no, he’s talking about ‘Chairman of the Board,” that’s me!”

    Priceless.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Huh, the first and last HR at the Stadium might be hit by ex-Sox.

    • Manimal

      My dad just brought that up as well.

    • Ivan

      No matte what, the sox are join to the hip.

    • Steve H

      So was the first….

  • Ivan

    That 56 Game hitting streak as days go by looks quite unbreakable.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Word. That’s a getting a hit in every game for 2 months.

  • Joey

    Mike, promise me you’ll never allow this blog to become like lohud!

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Never. Trolls don’t stand a chance here.

      • Chip

        Wow, that is insanely bad over there tonight, reasons I’m staying right here

  • Mike Pop

    Yogi and Whitey were hilarious man

    • Joey

      they were great, hopefully whoever goes to the box next is just as entertaining (doubt it)

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    Hey, Frank Robinson, the forgotten superstar.

    Nobody brings his name up in conversations about the all-time greats, and he was nasty.

    • Ivan

      Neither Stan Musial.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        Word.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Harmon Killebrew too.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    I wonder who’s going to pull the lever. They said it would be a special surprise guest.

    • steve (different one)

      i’ll guess Big Stein

    • Will (the other one)

      Could we possibly be lucky enough to have it be George?

    • UWS

      My money is on the Boss as well.

      Fucking Payton. And Millar.

    • Thomas

      It’d be awesome if it was Bob Shepard

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      I don’t care about the lever. I want to see Kate Smith sing God Bless America.

      Live and in person.

      • Will (the other one)

        Dude, if there’s any time and place it could happen…

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        They may need to get her a chair, though.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          And hook her up to a car battery.

        • Will (the other one)

          Mmm, I don’t know…she was a pretty, er, well-built woman…

    • Joey

      Probably Rudy Guiliani, hopefully George

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        Ugh. Fuck Rudy Guliani.

        I’m suprised he didn’t pull the lever on 9/11.

  • steve (different one)

    i really hope Millar leaves the division next year

  • steve (different one)

    WTF? second time that’s happened

  • Mike Pop

    Yogi is a funny dude. I loved when they were talking bout chairman of the board and yogi went on for a minute and than they were like we were talking to whitey lol me and my dad were cracking up.. and when rizzuto said jackie robinson was safe but he wasnt even in the game

    • Will (the other one)

      The best part is that as it turns out, Rizzuto was in the game when Jackie stole home, so the fact that he edited himself out makes the story even better, I’d say.

  • steve (different one)

    how nuts is it that the O’s might have 3 guys with 50 doubles?

    even the worst team in the AL East would compete in the NL

    • dan

      They’d probably be the wild card right now. Just a guess.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        Screw the wildcard.

        The Orioles would probably be winning the NL East.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      There’s 4 players in the bigs that have 47 or more doubles, 3 play for the O’s.

  • Ivan

    That’s a lucky hit.

  • Mike Pop

    Pettite is killing me

    • steve (different one)

      he had some shitty luck that inning.

      dribbler in front of the plate, and he jammed roberts

  • UWS

    Awww fuck. This game is beginning to seriously annoy me.

  • Pedro

    We could really use a good pitcher.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      No way, they belong in the 8th inning.

      • Pedro

        It would have been really cool if Joba could’ve started this game.

      • Thomas

        Yeah I bet the Braves win all those years in the 90s if they stick Maddux and Glavine in the pen.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          They would have won 6 or 7 titles, easy.

          Your best pitchers belong in the 8th and 9th innings. It’s a baseball fact.

  • Kelvz

    I’m guessing, Arod with the game winning rbi.

  • Ivan

    Iight I got a question, who is the greatest Homegrown Yankee ever?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Gotta be Gehrig, right?

      • Joey

        Yeah, no doubt

      • Chip

        Mantle

      • Ivan

        I would say Joe D.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      Gerald “Ice” Williams.

      • steve (different one)

        Phil Coke

  • Chip

    What a magic night, Cano just walked!

    • Pedro

      And Molina with the HR. Crazy, crazy night.

  • steve (different one)

    CANOBP!!!

    • Joey

      Robbie took batting practice?

  • Mike Pop

    imagine if red sox got swept in their next series and we swept toronto.. god only in my dreams

    • Chip

      So they can celebrate with a win against us?

      • Mike Pop

        ya thats what i want to see

  • Ivan

    A Cano BB?

  • Sam P.

    Just getting to the site now … been watching on ESPN. What a great ceremony tonight. Hearing the chants for O’Neill and Bernie made me feel like it was 1996 all over again.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Hava muthafuckin Molina!!!

    • Sam P.

      Wow. Can’t believe it! Just enough to get onto the netting …

  • Chip

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MOLINA GOES DOWN IN HISTORY!!!!!!!

  • Will (the other one)

    Are you KIDDING me?

  • Joey

    HAVA!

  • Ivan

    What did I say.

  • Mike Pop

    JOSE

  • steve (different one)

    get the f*ck out of here!

    please let that be the last HR ever.

    that would be too funny.

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    There is no God but Mariano, and Molina is his messenger.

  • A.D.

    Molina, HR, unexpected

  • Jake H

    No way Molina has the final hr.

  • UWS

    Now THERE’S an unlikely candidate for the last HR at the Stadium.

    Hava Molina, indeed!

  • dan

    I’m speechless…..

    http://riveraveblues.com/2008/.....ent-161166

    Ivan, go play the lotto

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      That’s only half as good as the time Manny predicted the exact time – down to the minute – that the ASG would end.

      • Manimal

        :)

      • dan

        Wow, I didn’t remember that. Pretty impressive.

  • Kelvz

    Ivan you are right! HAVA Molina!!!! haha…

  • Manimal

    Hot chocolate really hits the spot when you have a soar throat

  • steve (different one)

    if Jeter has an 0-fer tonight, his entire career would be invalidated

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    So Jeter asked Sheppard to add “Now Batting” to his intro call, and then had Sheppard record the call so it can be played into perpetuity…

    Derek Jeter knows branding.

    In a related story, have you visited his website, jetersfordchallenge.com? It’s full of cool outtakes, bloopers, and behind the scenes footage of all his commercials. You should check it out.

    • Thomas

      I hear he got his Edge in blazing copper.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        With a cool panoramic vista sunroof.

        • UWS

          And voice-activated something-or-other.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          And a SYNC voice activated bluetooth system.

  • Manimal

    Theres definately ghosts. Babe probably picked the fattest guy in the line up to hit a hr.

    • UWS

      Ponson is going to bat?

      • Chip

        Britton with the PH homerun in the bottom of the 15th at 12:04AM

    • Thomas

      When’s Ponson going to hit his homer?

  • Mike Pop

    Cano gonna hit a bomb im telling u

    • steve (different one)

      i think they’ll hit like 5 more HRs tonight

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Nice job waving to the TV screen, Bernie.

  • Mike Pop

    Girardis kids are lucky

  • Ivan

    Bernie at age 40 is a better hitter than Melky.

    • steve (different one)

      unfortunately, his wife is a better OFer

  • A.D.

    nice Joe looking to getting bernie in there next year

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Ooo they’re pulling the lever now.

    • Chip

      And ESPN is on commercial……..figures

      • Sam P.

        Seriously … so, who pulled it, though?

    • UWS

      ESPN had better show it….

    • steve (different one)

      is Cone in the bullpen?

  • Mike Pop

    its gonnna be hank with a sabathia jersey on

    • dan

      lol

    • steve (different one)

      hilarious. “i know the season isn’t even over and he is still under contract to the Milwaukee Brewers, but I have already signed CC Sabathia to a 10 year, $400M contract”

      • Mike Pop

        “I want you for the New York Yankees” lol

        • Mike Pop

          lol hes like i know its risky but we gotta do what we gotta do to bring us back to the championship years meanswhile cashman is calling up seattle or philly asking how much they pay

  • Ivan

    Speaking of Melky, it would be even more crazy if he hit the last Homer. Geez even Mike couldn’t throw cold water on that.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      Melky – Inside the Parker.

    • Will (the other one)

      How dare you create baseball hell for us all, O Maker of Futures?

  • dan

    Who’s pulling it?

    • Sam P.

      How about Tino?

  • Mike Pop

    Are they seriously not going to show it

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I texted Ben, I’ll let you know when he replies.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        He said they didn’t pull it yet, doesn’t know why.

        • A.D.

          they’ll put it at the end

          • A.D.

            *pull

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      It was LeBron James wearing a Knicks jersey.

      • Ivan

        I wish.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      It’s gonna be Roger Clemens.

      • UWS

        With Mike Piazza and Mr. McNamee.

      • dan

        Brian McNamee

      • steve (different one)

        as he pulls the lever out of the wall and breaks it over his knee

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Or Tom Brady. He’s got some free time on his hands.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          Or perhaps Derek Anderson. He should be permanently benched for Brady Quinn by now.

      • Kelvz

        I think it is gonna be someone from the Dodgers..Yup, that’s right.. Manny is gonna pull the lever.. :)

  • Mike Pop

    ITs gotta be George right

    • dan

      I read somewhere that he’s not at the stadium

      • A.D.

        thats what they would say to make it a suprise

      • UWS

        They can set it up like they did with Bob Sheppard yesterday – via video linkup.

    • Joey

      If you mean George Costanza, assistant to the traveling secretary, then maybe

      • Will (the other one)

        My name…is Tanya.

  • Pedro

    Giambi can’t go away fast enough.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    It’ll be Steve Phillips, as a precursor to him taking over when Cash leaves…

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      Excuse me for a moment. I’m going to go light myself on fire.

    • Joey

      I just threw up everywhere, thanks alot

    • Steve H

      Even as a joke, not funny, just not.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Way to ruin Andy’s ovation ESPN. Jesus Christ.

    • UWS

      Could they have fucked it up any worse? I say no.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        heh, heh.

        “Boomer, what do you remember about your perfect game?”

        “I dunno, I was drunk as shit.”

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          whoops! meant to post that lower.

          Sorry, I’m drunk as shit.

    • Sam P.

      Was just commenting the same thing Mike. Seriously … I hate ESPN

  • steve (different one)

    Gammons: “what do you remember about your perfect game?”

    Cone:”i remember the strike zone was 4 feet wide”

  • Thomas

    Its got to be Mike Pags, he is the ultimate Yankee.

    In all seriousness shouldn’t it be Gene Micheals.

    • dan

      wearing a dugoutcentral.com t-shiirt

  • Ivan

    Pettitte you deserve it.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    This is great, that was the third time today I heard Cone tell the story about Yogi riding around the stadium in a convertible before throwing his perfect game, and each time he told it the kind of car changed.

  • Ivan

    I know who will pull the level…..Kevin Brown.

    • Ivan

      lever excuse me.

    • Will (the other one)

      With which hand?

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      Pavano.

    • Thomas

      You Kevin Brown has the same career stats as Curt Schilling, why isn’t Brown talked about for the HOF?

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        Brown is not an accomplished wordsmith renowned for his wonderful blog.

      • Steve H

        Orel Hershisher too. And both Brown and Orel had some big moments in the playoffs. Maybe because Schilling never shuts his fucking mouth?

  • steve (different one)

    i’d say it’s 50-50 Veras gives up a bomb here

  • Yankee1010

    Way to go, ESPN. It’s bad enough you have those 2 pieces of crap as the broadcasters, thanks for adding to it by missing both Pettitte walking off of the mound and the curtain call. Thanks a bunch, you NESPN pieces of crap.

  • steve (different one)

    uhh? strike 4?

    • Chip

      Second pitch (that was obviously a strike) was called a ball. It was so bad the TV guys called it a strike

  • UWS

    Did Millar just get 4 strikes? What the hell happened?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      They want to make sure they embarrassed him. Yeah, that’s it.

    • steve (different one)

      ESPN screwed up i think

    • Joey

      I was wondering the same thing, WTF just happened?

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    You know, in that first game way back in 1923, after every strikeout they played the PC Richards whistle.

    It’s true.

  • dan

    “Julio Veras”

    • Sam P.

      At least it’s not Tim McCarver and “Robertson Cano”

      • Steve H

        Or former Sox pitcher “Brandon” Arroyo

  • Yankee1010

    Yes, Jon, his name is “Julio” Veras.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      And they signed him this winter after he hurt his arm last year.

  • Andrew W

    My first trip to Yankee Stadium was April 14th, 1996. I was 6 years old and didn’t understand what the game was and what it meant. The Yanks won that game 12-3 and that was my first moment into yankee fanhood. Yankee Stadium is a place where dreams come true. I know that sounds cliche but its true. Being a fan of this team for the past 13 seasons has truly defined my life. It’s a place which I’ve grown up. It’s a place where I learned the storied history of a great classy team. I hope and pray that the new stadium has the same feel to it because the feel of Yankee Stadium will forever be itched into my mind forever. Go yanks.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      You know where else dreams come true? At the Bunny Ranch.

      • Joey

        you mean Michael Jackson’s ranch, right? Lots of little boys who loved it there

  • http://yankeesmtom.blogspot.com steve

    Good news. Joe Morgan just announced that the Yankees just got JULIO VERAS!

  • Ivan

    Wow Val Kilmer has to be a lil ticked no?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Hey everyone look, it’s Michael Keaton!

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        It’s Enrico Pallazzo!

        • Steve H

          Drebin? Frank?

          You’re both right.

      • Ivan

        The only people missing is Bale and Cloney and we have all the batman people.

  • steve (different one)

    “superstar” matthew modine?

  • Joey

    Where the hell did that one miss?

    • Chip

      It missed down the middle. Funny how that strike zone has gotten smaller by the inning

      • steve (different one)

        the ump doesn’t want this magical night to end

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          See my comment above.

          • Steve H

            And Reggie’s in the crowd too!!! Security better keep their eyes on him during the 7th inning.

            • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

              Okay, now I’m looking for Ricardo Montalban with his Uzi.

    I was waiting for Bobby Knight to turn around and choke out that kid behind him.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Veras has some nasty stuff. He just needs to get himself a little more under control.

    • steve (different one)

      i wish he wouldn’t walk the 9 hitter with Roberts on deck

    • Joey

      sometimes he has some great movement (like tonight), other times his FB is as straight as an arrow

  • Thomas

    Why does Jon Miller have to over enunciate every Spanish name?

  • Chip

    Curve ball looking right here

    • Chip

      Strike 3 right there

  • Mike Pop

    Jose i liked that pitch

  • UWS

    Urgh.

  • steve (different one)

    how come ESPN never shows the “k Zone” on a close pitch for the Yankees?

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Oh that was fucking gay. Kay pulled the lever, and it went from 0 to Forever because there will always be a Yankee Stadium.

    • Will (the other one)

      Seriously? This isn’t a cruel joke?

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      Damn straight. Just like there will always be a Hilltop Park, right underneath that huge Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and shit.

    • UWS

      You’re joking, yes?

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        I’m dead serious.

        • steve (different one)

          i don’t mind the corny sentiment since the “Countdown lever” is something i’ve been tricked into caring about for some reason, but i hate Kay.

    • steve (different one)

      seriously?

    • Kelvz

      Kay? Really?

    • Ivan

      Word. Of all people, Michael Kay.

    • Joey

      Are you seriously serious?

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Dead ass serious.

        • UWS

          If that’s true, I’m very glad ESPN didn’t show it.

          • Joey

            did us a favor for once

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    Jon Miller: “And, we’re back, and the Yankees have Phil Coke on the mound.”
    Joe Morgan: “And joining us in the booth are Yankee greats Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, and Steve Howe!”

    • Thomas

      No Tim Raines?

    • Thomas

      I think MO should pitch 8 and 9 and that Torre should make a special appearance to bring him in for old times sake.

  • Pedro

    Why can’t umps call a fair strike zone?

  • Kelvz

    Time for some Coke.

  • Mike Pop

    The pen is most likely our strongest asset going into next year

  • Ivan

    Girardi sure loves some Coke.

  • steve (different one)

    Coke-y Roberts should be a good matchup

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    Coke is from Northern California? I thought he was from Central Colombia.

  • Joey

    Phillip Coke!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chip

    Give him the fist pump baby!!

  • Manimal

    We need a good nickname for Coke.

    • Will (the other one)

      “The Mule”?

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Yours is better.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Philthy Coke.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Coke Fiend?

        • Ivan

          That would be the perfect nickname for Torre if he was over using him.

    • Steve H

      Rum n

      How bout, Phil “im not hughes” Coke. or, Phil “Im no ChOKEr” Coke. or or, The Carbonizator..something…. i got to stop this.

    That chick with the “Mike” tattoo on her back in the Yellowbook commercial is damn hot. She knows where it’s at.

      She has a good taste in names

      • dan

        I hear Jessica Alba is more of a “dan” guy. Yea, lower case “d” and all.

  • BklynJT

    That Coke is a beast… Unfortunately he had a joba-like reaction to that strikeout. I think Goose is making his way over as we speak to give him a talking to.

  • Kelvz

    Roberts just got a coKe! or, Roberts got Coked!….ok, im gonna stop.

Wouldn’t your first assumption be that I want nothing to do with this guy who’s name is tattooed on my body if I’m inquiring about your tattoo removal service?

    Remember when Reggie was in the movie Baseketball.

  • Manimal

    I didn’t know O-P-S could be said as “ops”

    • Mac

      neither did I. cringe-worthy. and the best analyst in baseball sat there mutely.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        Cringe-worthy, really?

        I say it as “ops” all the time. Is it that big of a deal?

        • steve (different one)

          not really.

            yeah, not really. but I’ll take any excuse to rag on those guys.

    reggie with a veiled shot at A-Rod? why not.

  • Frank

    Please tell me you all heard John Miller talk about “OPS” LMFAO!!

    I never get over what a bomb Reggie’s 3rd HR was.

    • Steve H

      On a knuckler too. Imagine if that’s a 95 mph heater

    • Ivan

      Yea that ball was just destroyed.

  • Kelvz

    Its Hava Molina night!

  • avi404

    Watch, At the end of the inning Joe Morgan is going to get on his knees and ask Reggie to marry him. What a loser…

    BTW, Jose Molina is doing is best babe impression. Awesome!

    • BigBlueAL

      Well both guys are legends. Reggie is Mr October and Morgan is arguably the greatest 2b of all-time.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

        Joe Morgan is going to go hunt you down and kill you for including “arguably” in that statement.

        Joe Morgan is the GREATEST second baseman ever, and played on the GREATEST team ever, the Cincinnati Reds. Don’t you fucking forget it. EVER.

        • Joey H

          and he never lets us forget that he is a hall of famer!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Chip

        You’d think he were Babe Ruth the way he talks

        • avi404

          See what I am talking about: Apparently chanting Reggie (1-word) implies more respect that Derek-Jeter (2 words). The guy might be a great ball-player and what not but Joe Morgan is a (ignorant) prick in the booth. I simply don’t understand why he cant quit.

  • Chip

    Jeter, grand slam

  • Ivan

    Would it be just off the wall if Jeter hit a GS here.

  • Kelvz

    setting it up for a Cap’n GS.

  • Sam P.

    Reggie really is appreciative of his place in history, and what it means to be a member of the franchise.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Way to go A-Rod. I mean Jeter.

    • Chip

      I agree, he didn’t com through there and we should now throw his entire career of good hitting out the window and declare him a choker like we did to A-Rod. I mean it’s only fair right?

  • BigBlueAL

    Thats twice Jeter has been rung up, bullshit!!!!

    • Chip

      Funny last inning that wasn’t a strike for Veras

      • Joey H

        think they wouldnt be bias in the last game.. NOOO why wud they do that lol

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

    sigh.

  • Joey H

    MO doesnt come in mid inning for the ovation right? if not u think ESPN will show it?

  • Joey

    Cap’n politely arguing. His parents taught him good manners

  • Ivan

    Jeter pulled a A-Rod.

    Just kidding.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      No you’re not. ;)

  • Pedro

    This HP ump, as is the norm with ump’s around the league, is a joke.

    • Chip

      Angel Hernandez is usually such a good ump too

    look how high Coke got there

    • Manimal

      har har har look at that pun.

    Now we need Goose in the booth, to weigh in on the Joba-the-reliever debate.

    WTF? Joba is the 8TH INNING guy. Not the 7.1 INNING guy!!!11!1

    JOBA IN THE HOUSE!!!

  • Kelvz

    Joba Time!

  • Chip

    I still cant believe Kay pulled the lever. What a pointless promotion

    • Joey H

      he did lmao?! you know thats all ur gonna hear on 1050 tmrw

    • Joey

      They weren’t kidding when they said “special”

  • Joey H

    too bad C.B. BUCKNOR couldnt ump the last game. hes a huge yankee fan. i remember fondly when he called julio lugo a dumb bastard after calling him out on strikes.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

  • BigBlueAL

    WTF!!!! Pete Abe said Michael Kay pulled the lever!!!! r u fukin kiddin me!!!!!

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    I hope Miller & Morgan discuss the reliever/starter debate. Morgan’s actually pro-starter.

    • Joey H

      i personally hope that they die in a car crash on the way home.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

      Yes. He thinks every good pitcher should be a starter… and should pitch complete games every time out with 200 pitches thrown.

      • Chip

        It would make games much more exciting if you ask me! These are all reasons Morgan will NEVER be a manager

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos

          Well, that, and his massive, world-altering stupidity.

          Those are the two reasons he’ll never be a manager.

          • steve (different one)

            never again, anyway

  • UWS

    Past a diving Jeter….whaaaaaa???

  • Chip

    EAT SLIDER BITCH! That’s just not fair

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Nice job by Morgan stretching “Derek Jeter” into 5 syllables.

  • Ivan

    NASTY.

  • Chip

    O come on, what ever happened to Take Me Out To The Ballgame?

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Ronen Tynan got a set of pipes on him, huh?

  • Will (the other one)

    No Kate Smith? Really?

  • Pedro

    You mean to tell me that 2-2 pitch was a ball while that 3-2 pitch to Jeter was a strike? What is Hernandez trying to prove?

  • Manimal

    It always astonishes me how his ears go outward.

      Throw in Steve Phillips and we have the greatest broadcast trio ever!!!!

    • Joey H

      so you are openly admitting that you intentionally, knowingly went to watch jon miller and joe morgan?

        unfortunately.

          you should be ashamed of your self sir.

    • steve (different one)

      ok i take that back

    • Steve H

      It just seem that way relative to Morgan

      Thats because hes using his biased. Its allowed on ESPN.

  • dan

    Kay won’t shut up.
