  1. Joey says:

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

  2. A.D. says:

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

  3. Chip says:

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

  4. UWS says:

    Stupid ESPN guys keep interrupting them.

    Also, I strongly dislike Brian Roberts.

  5. Mac says:

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

  6. Ivan says:

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

  7. 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.

  8. UNION YES. says:

    Why do you dislike Brian Roberts?

  9. Austin says:

    This is really going to suck if they lose tonight

  10. Ivan says:

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

  11. Mike A. says:

    Wow, the trolls really got to LoHud.

  12. dan says:

    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.

  13. UNION YES. says:

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

  14. Ivan says:

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

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

  16. Manimal says:

    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

  17. Mike A. says:

    JOHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNY DAMON!!!

  18. Manimal says:

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

  19. Ivan says:

    JOHNNY DAMON.

  20. Joe B. says:

    Johnny!

  21. Chip says:

    Johnny wants to be the last one baby

  22. steve (different one) says:

    damon has always come up big in this stadium.

    unfortunately, sometimes he wasn’t a yankee

  23. A.D. says:

    New candidate for last HR at the stadium

  24. Steve H says:

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

  25. Manimal says:

    Stupid greek.

  26. Joey says:

    A for effort Cap’n

  27. steve (different one) says:

    a great yankee stadium HR.

    fitting

  28. A.D. says:

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

  29. Will (the other one) says:

    The House that Damon Closed?

  30. Ivan says:

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

  31. Steve H says:

    Starting to get some good rips on this guy

  32. steve (different one) says:

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

  33. UWS says:

    Waters wants nothing to do with ARod.

  34. Ivan says:

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

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

  36. Will (the other one) says:

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

    Priceless.

  37. Mike A. says:

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

  38. Ivan says:

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

  39. Joey says:

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

  40. Mike Pop says:

    Yogi and Whitey were hilarious man

  41. Hey, Frank Robinson, the forgotten superstar.

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

  42. Mike A. says:

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

  43. steve (different one) says:

    i really hope Millar leaves the division next year

  44. steve (different one) says:

    WTF? second time that’s happened

  45. Mike Pop says:

    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) says:

      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.

  46. steve (different one) says:

    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

  47. Ivan says:

    That’s a lucky hit.

  48. Mike Pop says:

    Pettite is killing me

    • steve (different one) says:

      he had some shitty luck that inning.

      dribbler in front of the plate, and he jammed roberts

  49. UWS says:

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

  50. Pedro says:

    We could really use a good pitcher.

  51. Kelvz says:

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

  52. Ivan says:

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

  53. Chip says:

    What a magic night, Cano just walked!

  54. steve (different one) says:

    CANOBP!!!

  55. Mike Pop says:

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

  56. Ivan says:

    A Cano BB?

  57. Sam P. says:

    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.

  58. Mike A. says:

    Hava muthafuckin Molina!!!

  59. Chip says:

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

  60. Will (the other one) says:

    Are you KIDDING me?

  61. Ivan says:

    What did I say.

  62. Mike Pop says:

    JOSE

  63. steve (different one) says:

    get the f*ck out of here!

    please let that be the last HR ever.

    that would be too funny.

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

  65. A.D. says:

    Molina, HR, unexpected

  66. Jake H says:

    No way Molina has the final hr.

  67. UWS says:

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

    Hava Molina, indeed!

  68. dan says:

    I’m speechless…..

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

    Ivan, go play the lotto

  69. Kelvz says:

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

  70. Manimal says:

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

  71. steve (different one) says:

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

  72. 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.

  73. Manimal says:

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

  74. Mike Pop says:

    Cano gonna hit a bomb im telling u

  75. Mike A. says:

    Nice job waving to the TV screen, Bernie.

  76. Mike Pop says:

    Girardis kids are lucky

  77. Ivan says:

    Bernie at age 40 is a better hitter than Melky.

  78. A.D. says:

    nice Joe looking to getting bernie in there next year

  79. Mike A. says:

    Ooo they’re pulling the lever now.

  80. Mike Pop says:

    its gonnna be hank with a sabathia jersey on

  81. Ivan says:

    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.

  82. dan says:

    Who’s pulling it?

  83. Mike Pop says:

    Are they seriously not going to show it

  84. Mike Pop says:

    ITs gotta be George right

  85. Pedro says:

    Giambi can’t go away fast enough.

  86. Mike A. says:

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

  87. Mike A. says:

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

  88. steve (different one) says:

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

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

  89. Thomas says:

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

    In all seriousness shouldn’t it be Gene Micheals.

  90. Ivan says:

    Pettitte you deserve it.

  91. Mike A. says:

    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.

  92. Ivan says:

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

  93. steve (different one) says:

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

  94. Yankee1010 says:

    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.

  95. steve (different one) says:

    uhh? strike 4?

  96. UWS says:

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

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

    It’s true.

  98. dan says:

    “Julio Veras”

  99. Yankee1010 says:

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

  100. Andrew W says:

    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.

  101. steve says:

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

  102. Ivan says:

    Wow Val Kilmer has to be a lil ticked no?

  103. steve (different one) says:

    “superstar” matthew modine?

  104. Joey says:

    Where the hell did that one miss?

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

  106. Mike A. says:

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

  107. Thomas says:

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

  108. Chip says:

    Curve ball looking right here

  109. Mike Pop says:

    Jose i liked that pitch

  110. steve (different one) says:

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

  111. Mike A. says:

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

  112. 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!”

  113. Pedro says:

    Why can’t umps call a fair strike zone?

  114. Kelvz says:

    Time for some Coke.

  115. Mike Pop says:

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

  116. Ivan says:

    Girardi sure loves some Coke.

  117. steve (different one) says:

    Coke-y Roberts should be a good matchup

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

  119. Joey says:

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

  120. Chip says:

    Give him the fist pump baby!!

  121. Manimal says:

    We need a good nickname for Coke.

  122. Mike A. says:

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

  123. BklynJT says:

    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.

  124. Kelvz says:

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

  125. God, I hate that YellowBook commercial.

    “So, when are you marrying Mike?”

    “Uh, hello, dumbass, I looked you up for TATTOO REMOVAL. What the hell makes you think I’m marrying this guy who’s name is tattooed on my body? 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?

    Would a mortician ask me if I was planning a birthday party when I walked into his funeral parlor?

  126. BklynJT says:

    Did they just call it hopps? Are they talking about brewing beer or something?

  127. Ivan says:

    Remember when Reggie was in the movie Baseketball.

  128. Manimal says:

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

  129. Mike A. says:

    “He threw a mattress ball, and I just laid on it.”

    Heh.

  130. steve (different one) says:

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

  131. Frank says:

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

  132. BigBlueAL says:

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

  133. Kelvz says:

    Its Hava Molina night!

  134. avi404 says:

    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 says:

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

      • 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.

      • Chip says:

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

        • avi404 says:

          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.

  135. Chip says:

    Jeter, grand slam

  136. Ivan says:

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

  137. Kelvz says:

    setting it up for a Cap’n GS.

  138. Sam P. says:

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

  139. Mike A. says:

    Way to go A-Rod. I mean Jeter.

    • Chip says:

      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?

  140. BigBlueAL says:

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

  141. Joey H says:

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

  142. Joey says:

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

  143. Ivan says:

    Jeter pulled a A-Rod.

    Just kidding.

  144. Pedro says:

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

  145. steve (different one) says:

    look how high Coke got there

  146. Manimal says:

    The Mule. I like it.

  147. BigBlueAL says:

    Joba in baby!!! take the game to Mo in the 9th.

  148. Joey says:

    Teh JAH-BER!!!!!!!

  149. UWS says:

    Joba!!!

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

  150. Mike A. says:

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

  151. Ivan says:

    JOBA IN THE HOUSE!!!

  152. Kelvz says:

    Joba Time!

  153. Chip says:

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

  154. Joey H says:

    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.

  155. BigBlueAL says:

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

  156. Mike A. says:

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

  157. UWS says:

    Past a diving Jeter….whaaaaaa???

  158. Chip says:

    EAT SLIDER BITCH! That’s just not fair

  159. Mike A. says:

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

  160. Chip says:

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

  161. Mike A. says:

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

  162. Will (the other one) says:

    No Kate Smith? Really?

  163. Pedro says:

    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?

  164. Manimal says:

    It always astonishes me how his ears go outward.

  165. Marc says:

    I love Reggie and all, but man those guys like to suck Reggies dick.

  166. Jersey says:

    JOBA HUNGRY

  167. And now, back from the dead just for this occasion, here’s Luciano Pavarotti to sing “Cotton Eyed Joe”!

  168. Mo says:

    The Joba relief pitcher/starting pitcher is a joke to me. Honestly I don’t understand how people wouldn’t want a bonafide ace over a bonafide 8th inning reliever. Just doesn’t make sense to me.

  169. steve (different one) says:

    ELI!!

  170. Chip says:

    OK why are they advertising the Emmys when they already happened tonight?

  171. Mike A. says:

    OH MY GOD. MICHAEL KAY AND JOE MORGAN ARE IN THE SAME BOOTH!!1!

  172. Chip says:

    KAY IS NOW ON ESPN?!? This is getting worse

  173. Joey says:

    Gotta keep Joba in there for the 8th

  174. Joey H says:

    BOY GET YOUR NICE SHOES OUT, WE ARE GOING TO CHURCH! THERE IS A GOD! MICHAEL KAY HAS COME TO SAVE US ! lmfao!

  175. avi404 says:

    This is mental masturbation: the 2 idiots from ESPN and our very own Michael Kay in the same booth.

  176. Manimal says:

    I watched ESPN to Avoid Kay, and he still some how manages to announce.

  177. steve (different one) says:

    Kay is actually beig less douchey right now than usual

  178. Classic ARod two run HR right here.

    Has to be.

  179. Pedro says:

    They should have brought Sterling also..

  180. Chip says:

    Pinch-hit Miranda and let him hit the last Yankee Stadium homerun :)

  181. You can see Kay listening to Morgan and thinking, “Wow, this guy really gets it! He’s way smarter than Ken Singleton, we agree on EVERYTHING! Is there any way I can get YES to bring him on board to do games with me?”

  182. dan says:

    Kay won’t shut up.

  183. Rob D. says:

    Is anyone else shocked that Joe Morgan was just talking sense?

  184. Mike A. says:

    This is too funny. I can’t believe Kay & Morgan are calling the game as a team right now.

  185. Manimal says:

    Mora: Major League Pussy.

  186. Joey H says:

    NADY FOR THE LAST HR!

  187. Mike A. says:

    Closing in on 900 comments…

  188. Manimal says:

    Brett Gardner makes shit happen.

  189. Chip says:

    If I’m the Orioles, I pitchout first pitch here. Gardner will probably still steal it but o well. You gotta think he’s running first or second pitch

  190. Brian says:

    o m’ ever-lovin’ rocky cherry

  191. dan says:

    Nice sign in the outfield. Did Ben make that one?

  192. Chip says:

    Rocky Cherry and Coco Crisp should be in a commercial for something together

  193. Mike A. says:

    He told that same story yesterday…

  194. Chip says:

    BG IS THE MAN!

  195. Mike A. says:

    Brett Gardner makes shit happen.

  196. Joey says:

    Brett da jet!

  197. A.D. says:

    BG hustle

  198. Brian says:

    Every time I refresh I read the thread above as “The House That Became A. Horne”…so I may as well ask if he’s playing some AzFL or Winter ball…

  199. Chip says:

    You’re starting center fielder next season…….Brett Gardner

  200. Chip says:

    Speed is the one thing I’ve been missing in the past few years

  201. A.D. says:

    BG scores the last run?

  202. Mike A. says:

    I started a new thread, some people are having loading issues. Comment here:
