Categories : Game Threads


  1. bonestock94 says:

    Let’s see one last home run!

  2. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    We better win

  3. Jersey says:

    Hughes. Fuck yeah.

  4. Chef says:

    Well the top of the ninth would be a fantastic time to break the string of 12 straight outs by the Yanks…

  5. Drew says:

    No doubt. Yanks got this shit.

  6. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Nice escape by Hughes. If only his D had backed him up.

  7. Fastball velocity >>>>>>>>>>> the declining batspeed of Vlad Guerrero and Torii Hunter

  8. Dela G says:

    damn, can’t believe we are at a 4th thread on a tuesday night game that started at 9pm CST


    too bad i have an 8am class. I am staying up till this bad boy ends

  9. MikeD says:

    We’re scoring this inning!

  10. Dela G says:


    no more izturis

  11. ansky says:

    The way this game started i thought we’d have like 12 runs by now. I wish the Angels would re-sign Bartolo Colon.

  12. pat says:

    FUCK YEAH gritner the perfect guy to lead off the inning.

  13. Dela G says:


  14. e mills says:

    let him steal please no bunting

  15. danny says:

    stupid errors, nice bounce back hughes

  16. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    nice i love wen gardner is on base.

  17. handtius says:

    there is the winning run….speed racer.

  18. TJ says:

    Gardner’s GRTY rating just tripled

  19. whozat says:

    So, will Gardner stand at first base until Jeter hits into a DP like he’s done so many other times?

  20. Dela G says:

    jeter does not bunt at all

    no fucking way

  21. Salty Buggah says:

    Get on Gardy


  22. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Time to play the Angels game. Steal that shit Gardy!

  23. Mike Axisa says:

    Jeter’s going bunt, isn’t he?

  24. JMK says:

    I predict three straight bunts…

  25. Keanu Reeves says:

    Okay, now steal all of teh bases.

  26. Pags Pasqua says:

    Manufacture a run Grit! Then a Sandman 1-2-3.

  27. Jersey says:

    Lets see them wheels, Brett.

  28. handtius says:

    bold predictions: Gardner gets to 3rd on one play.

  29. Drew says:

    Get on the horse Grit. Let’s get it.

  30. Ivan says:

    Come on Gardy, try to steal, and Jeter DO NOT BUNT!!!!

  31. Dela G says:

    this guy has a good pickoff move

  32. pat says:

    Do they dare go 0-2 on jeets with a pitchout?

  33. JGS says:

    if gardner steals successfully, jeter will bunt

  34. Pags Pasqua says:

    Kay states the obvious for a change.

  35. Ivan says:


  36. JGS says:

    boy they caught a break there

  37. Dela G says:


  38. Drew says:

    Grit>>>>>>>>>>>>Pitch Outs

  39. Mike Axisa says:

    That was big. Thanks for the shitty throw, Mathis.

  40. bonestock94 says:

    fuck yea

  41. pat says:


  42. handtius says:

    I smell burnt rubber. and I was right, with the pitchout.

  43. Salty Buggah says:

    HAHA! Nice Gardy, horrible throw

  44. Dela G says:

    wow thanks for the missed out call there ump

  45. ansky says:

    Gritty Gardner!!! …now bunt Jeets!

  46. Ivan says:

    NO JETER!!!!

  47. Chef says:

    wow. he was out. over-slide.

  48. Drew says:

    Umpires are fun!

  49. Salty Buggah says:

    no bunt with 3-0 Derek

  50. JGS says:

    …and now Damon will bunt

  51. Dela G says:


    let’s go damon

    do not bunt with damon

    give him the swing and green light

  52. handtius says:

    now what?

  53. Tom Zig says:

    srsly no bunting…plz

  54. Ivan says:

    Come on Yankees.

  55. Brazilian Yankee says:

    1 for 9 with RISP tonight? That’s awful..

  56. Salty Buggah says:

    Damon Rocket?

  57. baravelli says:

    If Damon wasn’t as good a hitter as he is, you’d have to admit, this is really starting to approach a situation when a bunt is actually called for, no?

  58. Chef says:

    is that Darren Oliver? is it just me or was he pitching 25 years ago?

  59. Jersey says:

    Seems like as good a time as any to bunt right here.

  60. MikeD says:

    So, umm, I know we’re totally against the bunt, but is this a situation where…

  61. ansky says:

    prediction: Damon bunt, Mark sends a Tex message to right center for a double.

  62. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Could you make up my mind about the bunting?

  63. bonestock94 says:

    Can’t think of a better time for Damon to snap out of it..

  64. pat says:

    Darren Oliver Blows please dont throw this AB away.

  65. e mills says:

    let him steal 3B

  66. Mike Axisa says:

    No bunt please. You’ll take the bat right out of Tex’s hands.

  67. danny says:

    yea i guess u can bunt now……. lol

  68. Dela G says:

    swing here damon

    dont even try it you idiot

  69. handtius says:

    that’s why you don’t bunt.

  70. MikeD says:

    Bunt now off.

  71. Ivan says:

    Good Damon fucked the bunt, now he can swing the bat.

  72. pat says:

    Two bad bunts now Damon goes yard. Thats how it goes.

  73. whozat says:

    awesome. That worked great!

  74. Salty Buggah says:

    JD cant bunt…thats kinda good I guess

  75. bonestock94 says:

    Phew, perfect bunt.

  76. Dela G says:

    well he outdid me there

  77. Drew says:

    Way to go Johnny!!! That’s some good shit.

  78. Pags Pasqua says:

    That took guts – or stupidity.

  79. JGS says:

    wow..Alex owns this ballpark. I don’t get this from Scioscia

  80. Dela G says:


    you intentionally walk tex to get to a-rod?


  81. Jersey says:

    Wow. Ballsy bunting with two strikes.

  82. danny says:

    thank u for getting it down johnny

  83. bonestock94 says:


  84. handtius says:

    well…guess there’s always that. and now you take the bat away from tex and give it to A-rod. I wouldn’t mind a sac-fly from A-rod.

  85. Keanu Reeves says:

    Bleh. Good job by Johnny.

    It’s easy to say you want him to swing away (I did too). But this is obviously more productive that a GIDP. So whatever.

  86. Ivan says:

    C guys, now Tex doesn’t swing the bat. Gotta love the bunt.

  87. whozat says:

    See…all they did was make sure that Tex wouldn’t get to swing the bat.

  88. Drew says:

    Walking Teix to get to Al. Priceless.

    Bad move Scioscia.

  89. Salty Buggah says:

    no DP A-rod…or no K or pop-out

  90. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Mike scoscia has balls to do that.

  91. MikeD says:

    Oliver against A-Rod? If that match-up holds, I like this.

  92. JMK says:

    Time to shine, A-Rod.

  93. danny says:

    to get to…. arod? LOL

  94. This has the potential to be either amazing or disastrous.

  95. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    sac flyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  96. Chef says:

    Arod… clutch…

  97. e mills says:

    that’s what i’m talking about

  98. pat says:

    Damn, he fuckin tagged that.

  99. Keanu Reeves says:

    Job. Well. Done.

  100. whozat says:

    Good ENOUGH!

  101. bonestock94 says:


  102. Dela G says:



  103. Salty Buggah says:

    good job Alex

  104. handtius says:

    fucking smoked…into a glove. damn, we get no breaks…let get one more.

  105. Ivan says:

    Yeah A-Rod.

    Gotta love that gritty white guy who they stole from the sox……oh wait.

  106. JGS says:

    gritner is the man

  107. Moshe Mandel says:

    The bunt worked.

  108. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Textbook…Great Job Al!

  109. Chef says:

    And that to all you bunt-haters. Is exactly why you bunt. Textbook.

  110. Hideki to Brett as Brett was sliding in: SWEEP THE LEG!

  111. danny says:

    just as good as a hit

  112. pat says:

    MAatsui is gonna erase Arods clutchitude with a double.

  113. Pags Pasqua says:

    He who hesitates is Jeter.

  114. Drew says:

    Is his name really buddy?

  115. MikeD says:

    I was worried for a second, until I realized that it was Gardner at third. .00001% chance anyone could throw him out.

  116. whozat says:

    ARod hit that ball hard, too. Good job.

    A) why didn’t Jeter move up on the throw to the plate
    B) why didn’t he move up on that wild pitch???

    • pat says:

      Eh if the angels were smart they’d know they didnt have a chance to get gritner and would have cut it off and nailed Jeets at 3b. Of course the ball was hit very very hard so i guess torii thought he had a play.

  117. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Jeter should’ve advanced there… bad baserunning.

  118. baravelli says:

    The bunt was a good play, I think, because the first baseman was back with two strikes. If he bunts it a little harder, he has a legit shot to beat it out for a hit.

    • whozat says:

      I would’ve had the hit-and-run on earlier in the count, instead of the bunt. You stay away from the DP, you increase the chances of Johnny getting on base if he puts the ball in play. It’s not like Darren Oliver has filthy stuff.

  119. Dela G says:

    damn, i wanted insurance runs there

    ok mo, lets see what you can do here

  120. JMK says:

    Time for my Mosary beads and a rendition of Mosanna in the Highest.

  121. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Baseball is 90 percent mental, the other half is physical.


  122. Salty Buggah says:

    PeteAbe:UPDATE, 1:28 a.m.: Slap in the face to Alex, walking Tex to get to him.

    No, I dont think it was a slap in the face. It was only to setup a DP. (No he did not take shot at A-rod BTW)

  123. Brazilian Yankee says:

    If we could’ve gotten one big hit tonight, this one wouldn’t even be close. 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position is just awful.

  124. danny says:

    enter sandman!

  125. handtius says:

    42 = 0 runs

  126. Dela G says:

    Let’s get shit done mo

  127. MikeD says:

    What’s with the pocket shit with Morales?

  128. JMK says:

    Morales, Aybar and Figgins absolutely kill us. Getting Kendry out here would be huge.

  129. pat says:

    Can’t wait to go read the game recap at halos heaven and see how much they complain about gritner being out at 2b and how the game was rigged.

  130. Mike Axisa says:

    I love how I always feel so calm once Mo comes in.

  131. Mike Axisa says:

    Oh shit, Kay just said playoff preview!

  132. Dela G says:

    cmon mo

    get some command here my man

  133. Keanu Reeves says:

    Alright, My9 gun. Mo doesn’t throw 88.

  134. Ivan says:

    Was that a change up?

  135. JMK says:

    No luck with the outside corner tonight.

  136. I Remember Celerino Sanchez says:

    The ump flinched!

  137. kunaldo says:


  138. handtius says:

    oh, come on.

  139. Ivan says:

    Where was that.

  140. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Yankees just got robbed. Amazing.

  141. Salty Buggah says:

    get a DP Mo

  142. pat says:

    As we all know Mo rarely get’s DPs

  143. Dela G says:

    cmon mo

    please find that command out of your pocket somewhere

  144. whozat says:


    This is killing me. NO reliever has been able to throw strikes today!

  145. Ivan says:

    Kay, plz, shut up

  146. ansky says:

    i cant believe this friggin game!

  147. Ironically, if the Angels were bunting here, I’d find it way more defensible than the Yankees bunting in the top half of the first.

  148. Drew says:

    First two pitches in this AB are 93 mph. Mo slangin heat.

  149. Mike Axisa says:

    This game is taking days off my life.

  150. AJ says:

    I hate the angels with a passion. Every time the Yankees play them, I feel like it’s the most stressful moments of my life. They can’t just go down 1-2-3 in the ninth.

    Let’s go Mo!

  151. whozat says:

    A GIDP would be HUGE right now

  152. bonestock94 says:

    The pace is killing me

  153. Mike Axisa says:

    I have a doctor’s appt all the way downtown at 8:30. Please end this now Mo.

  154. whozat says:

    13 pitches
    7 balls
    0 outs


  155. kunaldo says:


  156. handtius says:

    double play!!!!!!!!!! love it.

  157. Drew says:


  158. Ivan says:

    DP BITCHES!!!!!!!!

  159. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee gun his ass down

  160. I Remember Celerino Sanchez says:

    Where are the Posada haters now?!?!?!?!?!

  161. Dela G says:



  162. whozat says:




    Hip Hip!

  163. bonestock94 says:


  164. pat says:

    Fuck your couch Reggie Willits? Yeah, fuck your couch.

  165. Salty Buggah says:

    Good double play guys!!!!!

  166. Mike Axisa says:

    I hurt myself jumping off the couch. Fuck.

  167. ansky says:


  168. e mills says:

    omg there’s two all world catchers on the bench what’s Jorge doing in there

  169. ARX says:


  170. HEY YANKEE FANS, says:


  171. handtius says:

    fuck cali.

  172. Rey22 says:


  173. Chef says:

    Good Game.

  174. Aaaaaaaaaaaaand exhale.

  175. MikeD says:

    Double cool.

  176. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    thats whar im talkig about babii

  177. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Take that Mofos!

  178. Ivan says:

    Yankees wins, Yankees fuckin win.

  179. MikeD says:

    Backed in? Kay is so fucking lame. That’s not what the term “backed in” means. Loser.

  180. JMK says:

    That’s how you play baseball. Suck it, you small-ball playing, non-city, sissy-named team.

  181. ShuutoHeat says:

    YANKEEES WIN! YANKEEES WIN! Man, my neighbors probably called 311 and filed a noise complaint on me. Screw them, it was worth it!

  182. Sleepy Carl says:


  183. danny says:

    hell yesss

  184. Salty Buggah says:


  185. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Now can you all please enjoy the X???

  186. Pags Pasqua says:

    Mike Pagliarulo, Ken Griffey Sr, Roy White, Rick Cerone, Joe Torre

    (All wore #6) Who will it be on the Magic Number picture? I vote for Roy White.

  187. Tom Zig says:

    We’re going streaking!

  188. Dela G says:



  189. You know what? I’m actually glad we won this game in this fashion. I like the fact that we let the Angels come all the way back, let all those “demons” come forward, and still salted it away in the ninth.

    It’s oddly more satisfying than a ho-hum 5-0 victory, for some reason.

  190. Ryan says:

    Woohoo! Back to the playoffs

  191. handtius says:

    NOW WE CAN WININ THE POSTSEASON!!!11!!!111111!!!

  192. LiveFromNewYork says:

    Philly gets the win.

  193. LiveFromNewYork says:

    First team to the postseason, baby. Kiss our pin-striped asses.

  194. Omar says:

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to the magic number pic

  195. MikeD says:

    Alright, good night. It’s approaching 2am and I know a lot of you guys are in schoo, but I have to actually go to work and give a presentation at 8am. It’ll feel much better with a win!

  196. thurdonpaul says:

    yeah babyyyyy phase one mother f ers !!!!!

  197. JMK says:

    Shouldn’t Anaheim be set ablaze by wildfires right now? It’s that time of the year still, right?

    I’d be happy to see that whole region torched.

    • baravelli says:

      Hey, watch it, some of us Yankee fans live here too. And dude, those fires got scary this year. The clouds of smoke up over the Hollywood sign looked like mushroom clouds, and the air all over the city was bad.

    • Mike Axisa says:

      That’s not cool. A shitload of people live in SoCal, and so many families lose absolutely everything in those fires. It’s awful.

  198. baba o'riley says:

    curious choice for the photo. what could those two be celebrating?

    • Drew says:

      500th hr i think.

    • Salty Buggah says:

      Alex is thanking Torre for the steaks and blowjobs.

      • Alex: I just wanna say, Joe, thank you so much for bringing me here. I love being a Yankee. Even with all the postseason struggles and the media craziness, these have been the happiest years of my life, and I’ve never felt closer to a bunch of guys as I do to you guys.
        Joe: No problem. By the way, I’m totally going to betray all your confidences in a tell-all book and blame all my personal failings on you as my designated scapegoat, because you’re a super-easy target and I’m lazy, all because I’m acting like a petulant child because I feel like I’m entitled to keep my job even though I’ve sucked at it for a few years now and I’m willing to whore out my managerial bonafides to gain petty revenge and make a quick buck. I’m sure you’ll understand.

        … aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, SCENE!!!

  199. Drew says:

    No post game at all? Where’s Russ when you need em!?

  200. Tom Zig says:

    I hate when there is no postgame show. I also hate My9

  201. Drew says:

    Wow, Lohud with the same pic. That’s a bit odd.

  202. Tom Zig says:

    I vote that My9 never shows another Yankee game ever.

    • pat says:

      Well for the poor people like me who don’t get YES it’s nice to be able to watch a game once a week. Yanks have a pretty diverse fanbase, not all are on the same socioeconomic level as people here.

    • Bryan says:

      I hate My9 because being a Yankee fan in Florida I get the other team’s broadcast on the Extra Innings. I gotta say though it was funny tonight listening to the Angels announcers . They had Roger Lodge in the booth promoting a celeb golf tourney for the Angels children foundation he co hosts with Rex Hudler. A-Rod comes to the plate so he says A-Fraud digs in. 3-0 count and he’s going on and on about the Red Sox bullpen and A-Rod goes deep and then they had this funny exchange with Kate Hudson looking on.;topic_id=

  203. Oh, man, that SportsCenter highlight of Greinke straight pwning the Red Sox is fun to watch.

  204. yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    wow i was just in looking at the videos and whoever that announcer was called a-rod and a-fraud and den a-rod hits the home run.
