Game 111 Spillover Thread IV

Game 111 Spillover Thread III
DeLaRosa dominates again, but Trenton falls in extras

Like I said, can’t complain about three out of four.

And what’s up with a spillover thread lasting only a half-inning? Dayum.

Game 111 Spillover Thread III
DeLaRosa dominates again, but Trenton falls in extras
  • JobaWockeeZ

    Haha Mike thinking game was over. Damon and Teix must have read RAB and wanted to put their foot in your mouth. Do it more often

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    That little thing you see on the floor, bleeding profusely, is the heart of Red Sox Nation.

    • No Halladay

      Agreed, that was worse than a shut out, hope trampled

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        In true Red Sox fashion. Those are the Red Sox I grew up with.

    • The Fallen Phoenix

      Does that make Mariano Rivera Kano?

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Haha IETC. Though the Yankee Universe had a black hole 0-8 but time to soak in the hopeful sweep!

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        The 0-8 was just to make the funeral that much more painful.

  • No Halladay

    Holy fricking frijoles

  • JGS

    Mo with his one blown save in the Bronx in the last several years against the bottom of the Sox lineup. I like this

  • LiveFromNewYork

    I think we play all 9 innings. That’s what I’ve heard.

    • Bob Stone

      ietcvm

  • EvoLuTioN

    balls deep

  • J Squared

    3 out of 4 is bad when you win 4 out of 4.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Eric

    The most disappointing thing about this game? If the current score holds up, Phil Coke will get a (highly undeserved) win. That’s a travesty. Love the comeback though.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      He got the win in an earlier game when eh gave up the lead as well (Mitre’s last start in NY).

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      The epitome of ‘vulture win.’

    • Jeremy

      It’s undeserved, but think of it this way. This game was decided in the 8th, and our 8th inning pitcher was better than theirs.

  • southernyankeefan

    Red Sox Nation definately has its hurt face on tonight.

  • Salty Buggah

    I wanted more but I’ll take 4.

    We score 1. They score 2. Then we score 4 bitches.

    BTW, someone on Twitter just said:

    “Dear Satan, can you please make the Yankees plane crash?”

    WTF? Stay classy, Boston

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Yeah, this blog just had a guy making a joke out of the Hiroshima bombing so…

      • J Squared

        Hiroshima is wayy better than the Yankees plane crashing.

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          Yeah, it was only 80,000 people dying in one day. Not a big deal.

          • Bugsy

            not to mention the after shock!

        • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

          THEY WERE JUST A BUNCH OF JAPS WHO GOT INCINERATED SO NO HARM NO FOUL AMIRITE GUYS

          GUYS?

          GUYS??

          • J Squared

            Yes, as long as its not america, people are so sensitive and unpatriotic.

            • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

              This must be sarcasm, right?

              • J Squared

                Cry me a River.

        • Riddering

          Your priorities.

          Rethink them.

          • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

            IETCVM.

      • Accent Shallow

        Yeah, that was completely uncalled for.

      • http://www.twitter.com/shaked RichYF

        In his defense, getting “bombed like Hiroshima” is a little bit different than praying that the Yanks plane crashes.

        Not to say that I condone either, or that either were serious in nature, but they’re really not on the same level.

        One was out of joy, the other frustration so I’m not sure what to make of it. Just shrug it off I guess.

        • http://www.twitter.com/shaked RichYF

          And just to follow up, and not necessarily defend, but usually if you say something that involves some thought like “bombed like Hiroshima” it’s obviously meant to be funny. “I wish you were dead” isn’t so funny and it’s definitely a lot more direct.

          Using a historic reference to add humor is usually insensitive, but it is directed toward cracking a joke rather than just being a jackass. It’s never really “okay” to make comments like that publicly, but I doubt anyone on this board can say they’ve never made a reference to a historic event in a joking manner.

          Except Lanny.

          • Bugsy

            it’s also trivializing the event. i suppose holocaust wouldn’t get the same treatment.

        • http://Greg Greg P

          The only problem with shrugging it off is that we Yankee fans have no grounds to say s#%t regarding Sox fans’ behavior.The fact that today is the anniversary of Nagasaki just makes it sicker.

        • jim p

          Any thing like either of those notions comes from sick hunger.

    • http://www.twitter.com/shaked RichYF

      So that means the Sox score 8?

      • Salty Buggah

        heh hope not

    • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Classless jerks

    • Bob Stone

      The Yankees aren’t taking a plane. They stay in town to host the Jays. HAH!

    • Bugsy

      why would satan do that? isn’t he on our side?

  • Riddering

    You guys, I am so pumped.

    A-Rod going out for the fans. Tex getting to go out there and soak up the love only NY can give in a Sox beating. This inning. Total domination. Now Mo.

    I love this team!

  • Jeremy

    Let’s not get cocky. Ortiz might come off the bench and request the 8-Ball from MTV Rock and Jock Softball.

    • charlespoet

      Only he will come out with a blood on his ass from where his steroid shot went.

  • Giacomo

    I’d completely understand GM/Coach not putting in Hughes if he threw like 0.2 ip and 1 ip back to back. but 0.1 ip and 0.1 ip with very minimal pitches doesnt make much sense. i know it takes time to warm up, etc but i mean really? thats kind of nuts.

    anyway, lets have mo hold’em here. that leadoff single was hit pretty hard, but here comes the bottom of the order.

    • A.D.

      Yeah you rather have Hughes than Coke in there, but Hughes is still pretty new to bullpen role and warming up, and while didn’t throw much in games, did have to warm up. I can respect they didn’t want to warm up a young arm 3 days in a row.

      • Giacomo

        yeah, true true

    • Bugsy

      all is forgiven.

  • Russell NY

    First batter very important here. Lets not walk him.

  • Salty Buggah

    cmon Mo finish this please!

  • Ivan

    I see what Mo is doing. Let em get a couple hits, get their confidence up and slam em the fuck down. That Mo is a grimey dude.

  • Russell NY

    Careful not to get ahead of ourselves. Please god get some outs. Single to lead off….

  • Matty Ice

    if Mo closes this out, Phil Coke gets another very very very deserving win.

    /sarcasm.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    The zone is shrinking now. Great.

  • Accent Shallow

    That’s one.

  • southernyankeefan

    ESPN finally has a picture of a Yankee up.

    • espn stinks

      …with a dig on the new stadium:

      “Since Jon Lester gave up a seventh-inning homer to A-Rod, it’s been like the Home Run Derby at the Yanks’ new park.”

      They gotta mention the homeruns, of course.

      • southernyankeefan

        yeah i didnt read what it said at first.

      • The Fallen Phoenix

        And I don’t think a single one of those home runs were Yankee Stadium specials.

  • Russell NY

    Lets make a deal with the umpire. Expand the strike zone at the top of this inning and we will let them have an expanded one at the bottom of the inning ;-)

  • A.D.

    Its going to rain soon in NYC

  • Russell NY

    HUUUUUUGE out there.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I think Nick Green has a better chance of getting a hit against Mo than Ortiz does.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      IETC.

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

    Oh good, Ortiz getting ready to pinch hit.

    • Joey

  • Tony

    What the hell is this strike zone?

  • Bob Stone

    Mo is not his sharpest tonight. C’mon Mo.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Mo had to throw one right down the middle to get a called strike.

  • Russell NY

    I can deal with a HR here but no more singles or doubles or whatever. Cannot let the tying run ON BASE

  • Drew

    Convo between Green and Papi in the on deck circle.
    Ortiz: Get the fuck outta here.
    Green: Okay.

    • charlespoet

      Nice call.

  • Tank the Frank

    Seriously where did that wide strike zone go? I don’t mind it, but keep it consistant. You can’t just change it up late in the game…or at least you shouldn’t.

  • Russell NY

    Lets not act like Varitek is anything more than a .222 hitter here… GET, HIM, OUT!!!

    • cjc

      exactly what Mo was thinking

    Submit to the inevitable, Jason Varitek

    Bring on big mami

  • Tank the Frank

    If anyone is clutch enough to hit a 3-run HR with only one man on base…it’s David Ortiz!

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Only A-Rod can pray to be as clutch as that.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      I thought the same thing. He’s amazing.

  • Giacomo

    I just checked the radar. The whole state of New York has lit up like a christmas tree. holy christ.

      Rained here on Long Island Earlier.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    They’re coming inside because he’s having trouble getting around on a fastball this season, guys.

    Tonight’s performance is the equivalent of giving a child a lollipop, walking away, and then sprinting back just as the kid gets it near his/her tongue and not only snatching it away at the last second, but beating the living shit out of him/her in the process just for good measure.

    C’mon. Do. This.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    Mo is merciful, he grants Oritz a free base to spare him the humiliation of ending the series.

      two that werent called

  • Accent Shallow

    A walk to the corpse of Ortiz? Oy vey.

    I look forward to Ellsbury being humiliated.

  • Riddering

    Mo, in all his wisdom, doesn’t want to destroy Ortiz’s spirit.

    Not until the postseason, that is.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Mo needs to get serious and finish this shit.

  • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Mo getting a little too cute

  • Russell NY

    Ugh cmon Mo. You know better than to give him a free pass. They still would have been down by 1…..

    this ump’s strikezone has more shrinkage than when George Costanza got out of the pool.

  • SS

    FLAWLESS VICTORY!

  • Salty Buggah

    You know what, as much as I wanted Andy to get the win and have A-rod be the hero while shutting them out again, this win is going to be even more deflating to Boston and their fans as they got the lead and were so 4 outs away from salvaging a win. But whatever, we ROCK!

  • danny

    what an epic fucken win.
    can we even choose which one of these games were the best??
    such an amazing win.

    • danny

      amazing weekend* but win too ;)

  • Drew

    AP was by far the player of the game. I really didn’t think he was going to show up for 7 like he did, color me red.

    • Scooter

      Yup… Andy manned up in a big way tonight. I figured he was going to be cooked after 4 innings, 80 pitches, but he threw 7 shutout innings on a night when Hughes and Aceves were unavailable

      3 straight starts that could not be beat – AJ, CC, and AP.

      Wow…

      You knew the Sox were going to battle, and they did. Lester and Beckett in a short series are scary as heck

      Wonder if Francona will hear it for not tring to pitch Papelbon 2 innings

  • The Fallen Phoenix

    Courtesy of ESPN’s front page: “The Yankees hadn’t had a four-game sweep over the Red Sox in 24 years, but after A-Rod homered in the seventh inning Sunday, the N.Y. hitters went wild and put away Boston.”

    That might be true, but don’t mind the FIVE-game sweep of a few years ago. Unless that didn’t count, because the Red Sox didn’t make the postseason that year.

    • Bob Stone

      Key word left out – 4 game Sweep at HOME.

    • Salty Buggah

      well, it wasnt a 4 game sweep. It was a 5 game sweep and they were probably too scarred to bring it up.

  • China Joe

    Too bad Mark Teixeira doesn’t have a sense of humor. If I were him, I’d twitter back at John Henry after the game: “Curse of DN? deeeze nuuuuuts!”

    This is reminiscent of the 5 game sweep in August a few years ago when they played 5 games in 3 day – back to back double headers.

    Only thing that made that one better was that it was IN Boston.

      • Drew

        DId I miss anything good from Girardi?

        • Bob Stone

          He said that he won’t pitch Hughes three games in a row because his career is more important than any one game.

  • Salty Buggah

    A-Rod has 5 HR this season that have given his team the lead in the 7th inning or later. Most in MLB (1 more than Soriano and Mark Reynolds)

    • Salty Buggah

      FWIW, according to ESPN, he had only 1 last year.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Maybe he is clutch? Must be Kate Hudson. Hey A-Rod let Cano go out with her for a day or two.

    The BoSox DFAed Enrique Gonzalez. That’s three BoSox pitchers the Yanks not only knocked out, bit knocked off the team – Smoltz, Traber and now Gonzalez.
