  • Russell NY

    Dont Make Me Sad =(

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

    I’m going to repeat this, because it bears repeating:

    Alfredo Aceves needs to buy Alex Rodriguez a steak and a blow job tonight.

  • Dela G

    A-rod is a fucking god

  • kunaldo

    ugh

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

    Nice fall after the catch, Torii.

  • JSquared

    Cheer for a guy who went around the ball and took a longer route to it just to dive a little bit…

  • Russell NY

    I would like to single the Angels to death but we don’t play like that. We hit rockets to the outfielders for doubles and outs. I for once just wish we could slap the ball around and make them feel how I feel.

    • Chef

      I dunno… Smashing homers has given the Yanks more runs than the Angels so far.

  • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

    I’m a bit more optimistic I suppose.

    positive posse ftw.

    &*&%^&^^*&%%%!!! Dammit Torii!

    • handtius

      Double P in the house.

  • Tom Zig

    This is why you don’t let guys go 8 days without pitching.

    I dunno if anyone heard this, but here it is again, only louder

  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    That sounds like a Mastercard commercial.

  • aj

    Torii Hunter catches fly balls in his hat now.

  • trueblue

    Is Girardi high?

    Aceves pitched to 4 batters too many. This is disgusting

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      This game still doesn’t really matter, though.

      Just like getting Andy good, healthy work yesterday was more important than the win, getting Ace some good, healthy work tonight is more important than the win.

      • trueblue

        Mentally this game has to be huge. Blowing a 5 run lead would really be a kick in the balls

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          No, not really.

  • danny

    can i have runs and a side of HUGHESSS.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Nothing works against the Angels. It’s amazing.

  • Lanny

    And Girardi still inspires everyones confidence in a playoff series??

    • pat

      Abreu has had what appears to be a bases loaded walk against Marte in the past. Maybe Girardi was thinking about that. Abreu was 0-1 against Ace with a K before that ab.

      • pat

        Ugh this is not supposed to be here but still applicable, sorta.

    • Jack

      Yep.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Yes. Because tonight’s game is not a game in a playoff series.

      What happens tonight: utterly irrelevant

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Here’s why you don’t go to Marte there and let Ace keep pitching:

    A) Ace needs the work more than Marte does
    B) There’s no need to test Marte to see whether or not he can get out the lefty; we all know already he’ll be facing the lefties in October anyway
    C) If Ace gets out of it, it builds his confidence more than any confidence build you’d get by bringing in Marte

    • handtius

      Well, actually, Ace told Joe that if he took him out, he would get shanked in the shower, but your reasons are good too.

  • JSquared

    Das LUCK!!

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

    Oh look what I fucking found. Shove it up your ass, Palmer.

  • Chef

    So… Aceves is in line for the win. Absolutely ridiculous.

    • whozat

      I think it’s up to the official scorer to decide who gets it. It can’t be Gaudin, but I think he could give it to someone other than Aceves. If, like, Hughes threw the next two innings (which he won’t), he could get it I think.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      No. I think the win still goes to Gaudin.

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

        Didn’t complete five innings.

      • Brazilian Yankee

        OK, nevermind, Gaudin didn’t pitch 5. Kinda forgot about that last out in the 5th.

  • Russell NY

    Angels: single, single, single, single, single, single, foul 1 million pitches off, single

    Yankees: fly out, ground out, pop out

    Something wrong there…

    • whozat

      Yankees: Screaming liner for an out, bouncer that would have been a hit if the pitcher hadn’t reached back over his own shoulder to catch it, deeeeeeeeep fly to the wall

      • Chef

        All in under 15 seconds… Very efficient.

        I wonder what the time of possession is in this game ;-)

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          Didn’t the Dolphins have the Colts beat in time of possession like 45-15 on Monday Night?

          Yeah…

  • Moshe Mandel

    I really do not get all of the complaining about the bullpen usage that goes on here. Everyone preaches all freaking day about these games not meaning much and the Yankees needing to use this time to rest players and figure out the playoff roster, yet once the game starts, that goes out the window. Big deal, he wanted to see Aceves get out of it himself.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Exactly.

    • Tank the Frank

      I disagree. The Yankees haven’t clinched anything yet (although they minutes from doing so). These games do mean something. This division race is by no means over and the Yankees need to get back to playing good baseball.

      And if Joe Girardi’s job right now is to get players right for the playoffs then he’s failing. The bullpen has been completely misused and it shows in his decision to rest Aceves 8 days, leave him in to get shelled, then bring in Marte to face the (switch-hitting) lefty the next inning with no one on. The proper way to use relievers in preparation for the playoffs is to USE THEM IN SITUATIONS THEY WILL ACTUALLY SEE in the playoffs.

      It’s not quite time to start coasting through the season. This team needs confidence and needs to play good baseball going into the postseason. If this team can win another series or two they will have PLENTY of time to rest and play meaningless baseball.

  • aj

    Why is Aceves assigned to go long in games for pitchers like Gaudin, and Mitre? He needs to be used in every game he’s available.

  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    Is Palmer 5’4 190 lbs?

  • e mills

    via P. Abe: UPDATE, 12:25 a.m.: Great play by A-Rod to snare that ball down the line. That’s two runs if it gets past him. Yankees are lucky Vlad can’t run.

    I don’t think that he had to add in that Vlad can’t run, but then again he had to take something away from A-Rod’s play

    • pat

      Thats what he does, can’t wait to see him at the Globe.

    • trueblue

      It is a good point 6 out of 9 of those pesky fuckers would have beaten that out

    • King of Fruity Hypos

      Who do you read that stuff?

      • Russell NY

        huh?

    • Keanu Reeves

      Well it’s kind of true…I feel that there are plenty of guys that would have beat that out for an infield hit.

      • e mills

        you’re probably right. we’ll see in a couple weeks if he makes those same quips about Lowell or Youk

  • aj

    I can hear the LAA fan’s sarcastic comments. It’s annoying.

  • Pags Pasqua

    Fettucine Alfredo’s postseason tryout: FAIL

    Who get’s to throw hanging sliders in the bottom of seven?

    • Jersey

      This wasn’t a tryout. He’s already on the roster.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Agreed. This outing changes nothing. He’s still good money.

        • Pags Pasqua

          He should only throw in odd innings apparently.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      Who get’s to throw hanging sliders in the bottom of seven?

      He hasn’t pitched since Jnco jeans were popular. Give the guy a break.

  • aj
    • Russell NY

      Haha that is great. I’ll keep laughing at that until the 19th single in a row by the Angels.

  • Dela G

    damn i thought he hit that one out

    please put in phil hughes for the love of god

  • Tom Zig

    anyone but Bruney……please?

    • handtius

      you got it.

  • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

    I have no problem with Girardi letting Ace pitch his way out of trouble.

    I have massive problems with the Yankees (again) making Matt Bleepin’ Palmer look like he’s Roy Halladay.

    • whozat

      Oh, come on…there were two very well-hit balls in that inning. If they rolled all three pitches over for easy groundouts, I’d agree.

      • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

        +1

      • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

        I hear you. But this guy seems to throw zeroes … both describing his stuff AND what the Yankees get off him. It pisses me off.

  • LivefromNewYork

    I do not understand why bullpen struggles bring people here who have never been here before. Why is that?

    • handtius

      It his a studied theory that people voice frustration more then approval.

  • trueblue

    If Bruney come in I’m calling some Tim Donaghy shit on Girardi

  • Dela G

    wow aceves is back?

  • Moshe Mandel

    This is where not having D-Rob hurts.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      No. Nothing in this game hurts other than someone getting hurt.

      If we don’t have DRob on October 6th, then it will hurt.

      • Charlie

        dude, you’re taking this “these games don’t matter” a bit too far. this game is at least of some importance, so we can hold onto the lead for HFA throughout the postseason, which is like 4.5 right now. to say nothing in this game matters besides injury is just wrong

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          this game is at least of some importance, so we can hold onto the lead for HFA throughout the postseason, which is like 4.5 right now. to say nothing in this game matters besides injury is just wrong

          And, when we’re actually at risk of losing HFA and not merely at risk of being at risk of losing HFA, I’ll start to care.

          • Charlie

            its good that you’re confident in the yanks and by all means you should be, but still.. i just can’t agree that this game has no importance whatsoever

  • danny

    why is ace still out there? GAH.

  • aj

    y can’t phil hughes pitch 2….again?

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      He’s only conditioned to throw 12 pitches every five days or so.

      CAN’T LET YOU DO THAT, STARFOX.

      • pat

        OMG +1

        memories sweet, sweet, barrel rolling memories.

  • TJ

    So you bring in Marte to put Morales on his weaker side? Pretty meh decision Girardi

    • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

      Morales v. lefties: (4 HRs) .286/.302/.479

      Morales v. righties: (27 HRs) .303/.356/.581

      Nothing meh about it.

  • Moshe Mandel

    So, Marte for one hitter and then Hughes?

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Point, Moshe.

  • aj

    …that worked out well.

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

    Gardner’s gotta get around that ball and not try and dive for it. Bad, bad play.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Agreed.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      He wanted to be the hero, not make the safe, smart play. Basically, he mis-Melky’d.

  • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

    I dunno what he was diving at.

    • handtius

      it’s called slip and slide.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        it’s called slip and slide.

      • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

        damn kids drinkin’ their smirnoff ice.

  • Dela G

    boy, i didn’t think that dive was really necessary, but great job by swisher to back him up

    now put in hughes

  • Keanu Reeves

    What a great play by Swish to bust ass and be in position to back up.

  • pat

    Not even close grits hahah

  • aj

    2.80 …the price of a 7-eleven sandwich and Marte’s WHIP against righties..

  • Moshe Mandel

    Melky gets that ball!!!!

    Or does that only work the other way?

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      Propaganda says…..

      It only works the other way!!!

    • Russell NY

      I wish I could call a poll for

      “Will the Yankees win or lose this game?”

      I need to kick the depression…

  • Chef

    LOLOL!!! Gardner wasn’t within 5 feet of that. Idiot!

  • http://www.repairmycomputer.com Marc

    Wow! Tell me this doesn’t feel like the postseason already!

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      (doublechecks calendar)

      This doesn’t feel like the postseason already.

      • Lanny

        No game matters to the e man til game 1 apparently.

        • whozat

          Yeah…because they’re going to the postseason. Really, that IS the next game that matters.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          No game matters to the e man til game 1 apparently.

          That’s not true.

          No game matters until Game 1 for both the E-Man and for the New York Yankees as well. THAT’S the accurate way to say it.

          Seriously, dude. Derek Jeter will not be crestfallen and all broken up about a loss tonight. We’re still going to open the postseason primetime Tuesday night in the Bronx regardless.

  • Ivan

    Gee, Girardi u could of did that earlier.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      Done what?

  • Dela G

    boy glad to see you again phil

  • TJ

    Gardner’s SCRPY rating just plummeted

    • whozat

      Nah, SCRPY went up, UZR went down.

  • Lanny

    If Hughes cant get you 5 outs I don’t know who can.

    Lets just be glad hes not giving Bruney another tryout.

  • Bob Stone

    Jeez – What the hell happened? I stopped watching the game with the Yankees up 5-0. An hour later it’s 5-4 with Angels threatening in the 7th.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      The universe is fucking with us.

      Good news: This game is still utterly meaningless.

      • Charlie

        you’re wrong about that for obvious reasons

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          No, not at all.

  • aj

    I want the Sterling Shake.

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

    C’mon Philly. Nice quick out.

  • Dela G

    that was a quick out

  • pat

    Those gritty gutsy angels with their groundballs to the right side.

  • lily

    wtf was gardner doing?

  • Russell NY

    Need some Hughes lovin.

  • Dela G

    that pitch was 96 YES gun (even though we know it’s always wrong)

    • whozat

      97 on gameday :-)

      • Chef

        99 by my reckoning.

      • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

        It registered as Pi on ESPN.

    • e mills

      gameday has him hitting 97

  • whozat

    can he PLEASE put this guy away??

  • Charlie

    damn, hughes is throwin fuckin fiyahhh

  • Jersey

    Just blow his ass away, son.

    • whozat

      High cheese!

  • Russell NY

    Is it hard to foul off as many balls as these guys do? Is there a man out there who we can enlist for the Yankees to foul off unlimited balls until the Angels are out of pitchers?

  • Keanu Reeves

    Another Spongetech ad!

    • e mills

      spnge is dead man…100/1 reverse split to get on the nasdaq got rid of alot of people, although there were alot of shorts in anyway

  • Dela G

    my god

    get this guy out already

    please

    • whozat

      Seriously. I feel like that’s the first time in DAYS they’ve put a team away with 2 outs and a RISP without at least one run scoring. I know it’s not, but I’ve only gotten to watch parts of the Joba start, the first inning yesterday, and the 3rd inning on tonight.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Anyone else thinks Aybar is a zombie…? Or a vampire of some sorts?

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      I think he’s Dominican.

    • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

      He’s something. Here is the thing about Aybar that amazes me:

      Aybar lifetime: .282/.322/.381

      Aybar lifetime against current Yankee pitchers: .390/.422/.585

      WTF?

  • Russell NY

    You cant blow away guys that just wanna slap the ball. They practically have the bat in the middle of the plate before the ball is released lol

  • Jersey

    By the way, Texas is two outs away from handing us a postseason berth.

  • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

    Philly Woot!

  • Salty Buggah

    nice Phil

  • Ivan

    No need to fear, Phil Hughes is here.

  • Bob Stone

    Way to go Phil

  • Keanu Reeves

    HUUUUUUUUUUGHESSSSSSSS

  • Dela G

    THANK YOU PHIL HUGHES!!

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    ON TO TEH 8TH INNING!

    • whozat

      I dunno…those 7 pitches might make him unavailable for the next two weeks.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    good job phil

  • danny

    hughes :)

  • Pags Pasqua

    What’s that – 8 pitches? Maybe Bruney should pitch the 8th. Wouldn’t want to tire Phil out.

  • Jersey

    This Hughes guy is pretty good at baseball.

  • Bob Stone

    I just got on line. Who would have figured the Royals taking the first two of their series from the BoSux? I thought they would tkae the game tonight with Greinke pitching, but last night was a gift. Let’s win this game and bury the Sox.

  • Tom Zig

    A run or 4 would be nice

    • Brazilian Yankee

      We need to wake the offense up from its coma.

      • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

        5 runs= coma.

        Okay, anything else I should know?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Nice job by Phil.

    But why can he get 5 outs but not 6? Or is Joe gonna use him for 4 outs and Mo for 4 as well?

  • Chef

    So if the Sox play the Angels in the first round, who would you want to win?

    Don’t like the Sox so you’d want them to lose, but playing the Angels always seems so painful.

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      I don’t care who wins as long as the Yanks win

    • pat

      We want to play the sox and beat the ever living shit out of them.

    • Bob Stone

      This was asked last night. Most of us want a BoSox/Yanks ALCS. Nothing better than that in sports.

  • lily

    we need some insurance runs!!

  • pat

    Can we stop with the fucking Rangers update, that shit is bush league. We want home field that’s the only thing worth celebrating. Shut the fuck up Kay.

  • Salty Buggah

    PeteAbe loves him some Huuuuuuughes

  • Dela G

    YANKS ARE GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS!!

    YEZZUR!

    • Bob Stone

      That is absolutely fantastic.

  • Jersey

    Ian Kinsler lines into a double play. Postseason here we come.

    It’s on, bitches.

  • Charlie

    including the minors, phranchise is at 100.2 IP on the year right now and counting. considering how long he’s been stuck in the pen, it seems like that could be worse

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      True.

      It’s not bad, it only seems bad because Plan A was for him to throw 180 IP this season and shed his innings limits for 2010.

    • Bob Stone

      If you had quizzed me I would not have guessed that his innings were that high. Especially with how Girardi uses him out of the pen.

  • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

    cano looked safe as hell

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      I guess not. Piss poor replay by YES(my9) as usual.

      • Bob Stone

        Ever notice how the freaking my-tv-9 logo is always in the way of an interesting graphic about the team, player, opponent, etc. There should be a law. Better yet, the Yankees should make a law for its broadcasters.

    • Dela G

      he was out

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Playoff berth clinched.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Next up, division title. And then homefield advantage.

      • Ivan

        Then the World Series, and then…..THE WORLD!!!!

        • Salty Buggah

          then the universe

          • Jersey

            Then we get the money, then we get the power.

    was that really a strike?

    • whozat

      yeah, it was.

    Sweet. Yanks bat for 1 min, now the Angels will bat for 63 agonizing minutes…

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      He’s made two really fucking stupid plays tonight.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      It was Gardner’s fault the ball got through Jeter and the guy backing him up.

      • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

        Nope. I guess you didn’t see the play?

        • Brazilian Yankee

          I saw it. He could have got Howie at third. Still it wasn’t his fault like you’d like us to believe.

          • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

            I’m aware Posada made a bad throw and Jetes couldn’t block it. I honestly don’t care what you believe. The fact is, I don’t know why Gardner didn’t throw the ball. Hence, my anger.

  • pat

    Two all world defensive catchers on the bench ….

    • Dela G

      posada hit a 2 run homer in this game

      get outta here

      • trueblue

        That was a disgusting throw… one he wouldn’t need to make if Cano doesn’t screw the pooch

      • Brazilian Yankee

        I think he wants the defensive wiz to play late in the game, not starting the game.

      • handtius

        + more then I can think of.

        Pat, you know better.

        • pat

          I dunno, I guess it’s good I’m not the manager bc for these 8th and 9th innings I’d prefer to have a very good defensive catcher behind the plate, especially against the Angels. I guess I’d take controlling the basepaths over Posada’s 1 ab in the 9th. Oh well. Yay “wild pitch”

    • e mills

      lol that’s rediculous

  • Brazilian Yankee

    That’s just pathetic. Gotta play some D guys.

  • trueblue

    Fucking chumps

  • zs190

    I’m late on this but wow, Hughes in the 7th? Joe’s definitely using his bullpen like he really wants to win this game. I approve if only winning this game gives the team some confidence. You don’t usually need to do that with a team that’s going to win 100 games but losing so much in Anaheim probably gets in players’ mind a little bit.

    • trueblue

      I would agree had he not left Aceves in the game 4 batters too long..

    • whozat

      He’s actually using the pen like he should have been for the last month. Hughes was a starter. They could have had him throwing two inning stints for a while now, like Mo did when he first came up.

  • Jersey

    Maybe they’re overexcited about clinching a playoff spot.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      I blame Jeter. Kay said he was doing math. Clearly, he’s not concentrating on the game.

  • Dela G

    THEY FOUL OFF EVERYTHING!!

  • whozat

    Expected outcome: 1 out, no one on.
    Actual outcome: 0 out, man on third.

    Yankees FAIL.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    thats a big out.

  • pat

    Fuck it, Hughes is goin beastmode.

  • Ivan

    iight Hughes.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Come on Hughes 2 more pop outs and were out of the inning.

  • Dela G

    strike zone gets smaller and smaller

    • whozat

      Those were all outside. Hughes just screwed the pooch. Apparently, the outside corner is the only place they can throw the ball, for some reason, and he’s just missing it over and over again.

  • Ivan

    Come on Hughes.

  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    I’m not opposed to a walk to set up a DP.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      But nevermind.

  • aj

    fuck this shit im goin to sleep.

  • whozat

    awesome.

  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Meh.

    • Tom Zig

      I know we clinched a playoff spot, but come on man, we gotta at least show we can win in Anaheim

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        we gotta at least show we can win in Anaheim

        We do. In October. Maybe.

        In September, we don’t have to show anything. We can go 0-6 in Anaheim in July and September and still win in Anaheim in October.

  • Tom Zig

    This is ridiculous

  • Dela G

    fucking A

    the game is fucking tied

    jesus christ

  • Ivan

    Were winning this game.

  • e mills
  • danny

    :(

  • trueblue

    Wow… what a bunch of clowns.

    Girardi is an asshole

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Yeah. Girardi made Hughes, Cano, Jeter, Gardner, and Posada put a runner on third base with no outs.

    • handtius

      true fan.

  • Dela G

    cmon hughes

    we know you can do this

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    o wow bruney up in the pen.

  • e mills

    I hope the Yankees don’t cost me my parlay…3/3 so far

  • MikeD

    Oh, thank god Bruney is up in the bullpen. It’s not like I’d like to have hope.

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      Who would you like to get up? Coke? Unavailable. D-Rob? Unavailable. Ace? Unavailable. Marte? Unavailable.

      Let’s run Philly into the ground because you don’t like Bruney!!

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Personally, I’d like to see Ian Kennedy at some point.

  • Salty Buggah

    Bruney?

  • whozat

    They haven’t had anyone who can throw strikes consistently since the fifth inning.

  • Ivan

    STFU KAY!!!!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Congrats to Cano and Posada for manufacturing that Angels run.

  • Henry

    If the Red Sox were playing the Angels, the Angels would be losing by 9 right now.

    AND WHY DIDNT GARDNER THROW TO 3RD…WTF! WAS THAT INTERFERENCE ON JETER?

    • Keanu Reeves

      How can you make that statement?

  • ARX

    ……..

  • Tank the Frank

    Michael Kay. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

  • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

    This game has been Murphy’s Law since the bottom of the 5th.

  • Dela G

  • Ivan

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

    Yeah, normally I’d be all ‘They made the playoffs, it’s all good’ but I’m just not in that mood at all right now.

    • http://tomorrowsnewsyesterday.wordpress.com/ JMK

      Same. We’re not losing the game and I’m quite pleased we’re in the playoffs. However, the way we’re playing in this one (since the 5th, at least) leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

      It’s all good, we’re going to win this shit.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Can I cheer you up with some pictures of girls with big juggs and big asses in bikinis and lingerie? Would that work?

  • Tom Zig

    Now Hughes won’t be used for another 8 days

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Heh. I doubt it, but I know you’re just facetiously speaking out of frustration…

      • handtius

        i love lamp.

  • Pags Pasqua

    DP – Please!!!

  • Dela G

    throw vlad 5000 curveballs and cutters

  • TJ

  • ansky

    why is Anaheim like some alternate universe where the Yanks cant do anything right?

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    I swear these angels are more like devils in my eyes.

  • handtius

  • Dela G

  • bonestock94

    Phew, one more to go. I knew this lead was too good to be true. A nice clean win is impossible in this place.

  • whozat

    The YES gun is really inconsistent…he’s still at 95, Hughes is.

  • http://martelli.mlblogs.com/melky%20c.jpg Drew

    Ugh, I don’t know why YES’s gun still pisses me off. you’d think I’d be used to it by now.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Sometimes I turn off the game and try to guess the score by reading the comments. It’s 20 bazillion to 0 (Angels), isn’t it?

  • Ivan

    PHILLY!!!!!!!

  • Salty Buggah

    why all the panic in here?

  • bonestock94

    Clutch

  • Dela G

    HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGES!!

    HUGE job by Philly there. Good shit. Lets get the win now.

  • Keanu Reeves

    All things considered…way to go Hughes.
