Game 152 Spillover Thread II
Yanks rally, crumble, rally again in 6-5 win
  • bonestock94

    Let’s see one last home run!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    We better win

  • Jersey

    Hughes. Fuck yeah.

  • Chef

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

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

    No doubt. Yanks got this shit.

  • Brazilian Yankee

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

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

      +1

      And it wasn’t even one defender that let him down, it was damn near half the team. Sad.

    LETS GO YANKEES

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

    • Jersey

      The one advantage of evening classes is when the Yanks are on the West Coast.

    • danny

      me too, so ill be pissed if i stayed up for a loss lol

  • MikeD

    We’re scoring this inning!

  • Dela G

    yes!

    no more izturis

  • ansky

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

  • pat

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

  • Dela G

    GRIT GUTNER IS ON BASE MY FRIENDS

  • e mills

  • handtius

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

    OOOOH IMMINENT GARDNER STEAL

  • TJ

    Gardner’s GRTY rating just tripled

  • whozat

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

  • Dela G

    jeter does not bunt at all

    no fucking way

    • MikeD

      What, are you kidding? Jeter’s been bunting lately, even when Giradi doesn’t give him the sign.

  • Salty Buggah

    Get on Gardy

    ….Thanks

  • Brazilian Yankee

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

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

    Jeter’s going bunt, isn’t he?

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

    I predict three straight bunts…

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

      Heh.

  • Keanu Reeves

    Okay, now steal all of teh bases.

  • Pags Pasqua

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

  • Jersey

    Lets see them wheels, Brett.

  • handtius

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

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

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

  • Ivan

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

  • Dela G

    this guy has a good pickoff move

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

    Hit and run.

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

        Let’s gaffle these mark-ass-tricks.

  • pat

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

    • pat

      2-0, whoops.

  • JGS

    if gardner steals successfully, jeter will bunt

  • Pags Pasqua

    Kay states the obvious for a change.

  • Ivan

    GARDY!!!!!

  • JGS

    boy they caught a break there

  • Dela G

    GRIT GUTNER STEALS !!!

  • handtius

  • Salty Buggah

    HAHA! Nice Gardy, horrible throw

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

    Oof, he was out.

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

      Doesn’t matter, he beat the throw.

      /MartyFoster’d

  • Dela G

    wow thanks for the missed out call there ump

  • ansky

    Gritty Gardner!!! …now bunt Jeets!

  • Ivan

    NO JETER!!!!

  • Chef

    wow. he was out. over-slide.

  • danny

    GRIT.

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

    Umpires are fun!

  • Salty Buggah

    no bunt with 3-0 Derek

  • JGS

    …and now Damon will bunt

    • Pags Pasqua

      Double steal on the first pitch from the new pitcher.

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

        I like it. Ballsy.

  • Dela G

    alright

    let’s go damon

    do not bunt with damon

    give him the swing and green light

  • handtius

    now what?

    • handtius

      double steal?

    • Chef

      bunt. tex will sac fly.

  • Tom Zig

    srsly no bunting…plz

  • Ivan

    Come on Yankees.

  • Brazilian Yankee

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

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

      Just think, if we get two hits now, we’ll be 3-11. That’s good.

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

      Better than last night.

  • Salty Buggah

    Damon Rocket?

  • baravelli

    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?

    • Chef

      yes. bunt.

    • handtius

      no.

  • Chef

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

    • Jersey

      Close. Since ’93.

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

        Jimmy Key, what’s he, like 45? I could hit him.

  • Jersey

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

  • MikeD

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

  • ansky

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

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

      Except for the part where they IBB Tex.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Could you make up my mind about the bunting?

    • Pags Pasqua

      Damon just made up my mind.

  • bonestock94

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

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

    push bunt?

  • pat

    Darren Oliver Blows please dont throw this AB away.

  • e mills

    let him steal 3B

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

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

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

      Point, Axisa.

      I’d rather have three shots at an XBH from Damon, Tex, and ARod than an out, one shot at a Sac Fly from ARod and then more hitters who are not as good as Damon, Tex, and ARod.

  • danny

    yea i guess u can bunt now……. lol

  • Dela G

    swing here damon

    dont even try it you idiot

  • handtius

    that’s why you don’t bunt.

    • Chef

      huh?

  • MikeD

    Bunt now off.

    • MikeD

      …or not.

  • Ivan

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

    • Ivan

      Nevermind, never fuckin mind.

  • pat

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

    • pat

      Or the third one is successful, boooo to me.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Or maybe he lays down a gritty bunt with 2 strikes.

  • whozat

    awesome. That worked great!

  • Chef

    well done

  • Salty Buggah

    JD cant bunt…thats kinda good I guess

    • Salty Buggah

      damn, he did it anyway

  • bonestock94

    Phew, perfect bunt.

  • Dela G

    well he outdid me there

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

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

  • Pags Pasqua

    That took guts – or stupidity.

    • LiveFromNewYork

      Johnny is not the brightest bulb…but he can be good at baseball.

  • JGS

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

  • Dela G

    wow

    you intentionally walk tex to get to a-rod?

    interesting

  • Jersey

    Wow. Ballsy bunting with two strikes.

  • danny

    thank u for getting it down johnny

  • bonestock94

    MAKE THEM PAY AROD!!!

  • handtius

    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.

  • Keanu Reeves

    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.

    • whozat

      Yeah, but now Tex doesn’t get a shot at it.

      • Keanu Reeves

        It all worked out. They say that A-Rod fella that hits behind him is pretty good too =p

  • Ivan

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

  • whozat

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

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

    Walking Teix to get to Al. Priceless.

    Bad move Scioscia.

  • Salty Buggah

    no DP A-rod…or no K or pop-out

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Mike scoscia has balls to do that.

  • MikeD

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

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

    Time to shine, A-Rod.

  • danny

    to get to…. arod? LOL

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

    This has the potential to be either amazing or disastrous.

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

    Alright!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    sac flyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  • handtius

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

    • LiveFromNewYork

      You’re a negative little fella, aren’t ya?

      • handtius

        nope, not at all. I’m part of the positive posse.

  • Ivan

    Yeah A-Rod.

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

  • JGS

    gritner is the man

  • Moshe Mandel

    The bunt worked.

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

      Yes.

      Doesn’t mean it was the smart play, though.

      • Chef

        The bunt has its place. And that was exactly it. The ONLY debate is see is whether or not to have called it off when Damon had 2 strikes.

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

          The fact that the bunt helped score us a run in that situation does not mean that the bunt is the best strategy in that situation.

          This is like saying that the fact that a football team’s offense can consistently produce field goals means it’s a good offensive strategy.

        • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

          +1

      • Moshe Mandel

        It actually is if you want one run.

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

          If you only want one run, yes.

          It’s the top of the 9th, though, not the bottom of the 9th.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Textbook…Great Job Al!

  • Chef

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

    • handtius

      In LA, I’d rather have more then a 1 run lead.

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

      Again, that doesn’t mean it was the smart play.

      In the alternative universe where we don’t bunt, it may well be 7-5 instead of 6-5.

      • Chef

        Or 5-5.

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

          True. And, in the universe where we do bunt, the score could also be 5-5.

      • Moshe Mandel

        Or it could be 5-5. When playing for one run, a bunt with 1st and 2nd and no outs is the right move, especially with Mariano in your corner.

      • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

        tjsc, your logic rules are correct. The bunt wasn’t the right play BECAUSE it worked.

        It was the right play INDEPENDENT of it working.

        • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

          I mean tsjc, of course. My spelling: Fail.

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

          It was the right play INDEPENDENT of it working.

          That point cannot be conceded. There is evidence to the contrary.

          • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

            Produce it, then.

            Getting one is essential. Getting a man to third with less than two outs is something like 65 percent chance of a run (on the next batter).

            • handtius

              you have a greater chance of scoring with 1st, 2nd, no outs, then 2nd, 3rd, 1 out.

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

              WPA and W/E is the evidence to the contrary.

              5-5 tie game, two on, none out, heart of your order up: swing away and play for multiple runs. You still have a good chance of scoring just the one run. Bunting increases your chance of scoring one run slightly and decreases your chances of scoring two runs DRAMATICALLY.

              If it was a 5-4 deficit and the same situation, I’d support the bunt. If it was 5-5 same situation but we were the home team and it was the bottom of the 9th, I’d support the bunt. But with the Angels having the last swings, I’m not trading a potential big inning for the very statistically small probability upgrade of a sac bunt.

    • whozat

      Yes. There was no other possible way that a Johnny Damon AB, a Mark Teixeira AB, and an ARod AB could have turned into one run.

      • Chef

        its about maximizing your chances for 1 run. the second run is exponentially less important than the first. in the ninth inning and after you play for one run.

        • I Remember Celerino Sanchez

          Especially with Mo.

      • Chef

        WOOOOO!!!

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

      Some people like bunts, some people hate bunts.

      I don’t think there will ever be an agreement on the two sides.

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

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

    • pat

      hahaha

    • Jersey

      IETC

  • danny

    just as good as a hit

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

      Well, no. It got the job done but it’s definitely not as good as a hit.

      • danny

        still better than a dp

  • pat

    MAatsui is gonna erase Arods clutchitude with a double.

    • pat

      fuck me wrong again.oof.

  • Pags Pasqua

    He who hesitates is Jeter.

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

    Is his name really buddy?

    • whozat

      I think his last name is Budde

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

        Yeah it is.

    • MikeD

      Buddy, I’m not sure.

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

      Budde.

  • MikeD

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

  • whozat

    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

      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.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Jeter should’ve advanced there… bad baserunning.

  • baravelli

    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

      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.

  • Dela G

    damn, i wanted insurance runs there

    ok mo, lets see what you can do here

    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)

    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.

    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.

      Nope. It was totally a ball.

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

  • AJ

    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!

            Pat’s most frequent fantasy: Getting banged by a penis made of fire.

            Sick fucko.

          I kept trying to tell you all night: That wasn’t my mom. My mom was wearing the brown dress. She left at like 8:30.

          That was a guy, dude. He had a moustache and everything.

  • Pags Pasqua

    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.

    • Pags Pasqua

      All right – Torre will do – even though he’s a Dodger.

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

    Magic Number = 6

    BALL GAME

    I AM SOOOOOOOOO FUCKING HAPPY

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

    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.

    • handtius

      I feel ya, but I’m definitely dieing just a wee bit younger.

    • pat

      Sorry dude, u missed it. The game was lost in the 6th and 7th innings. They just played the rest out for fun. This was an official loss.

      • handtius

        the yankees record is actualy more like 55-56, because wins not earned before the 6th don’t count for them. rule changed this year. didn’t you get the memo?

  • Ryan

    Woohoo! Back to the playoffs

  • handtius

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

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Philly gets the win.

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

    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!

    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

      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.

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

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

  • baba o’riley

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

    • Salty Buggah

      Alex is thanking Torre for the steaks and blowjobs.

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

        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!!!

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

    • pat

      I got a fever, the only prescription is Russ Salzberg’s liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

  • Tom Zig

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

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

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

  • Tom Zig

    I vote that My9 never shows another Yankee game ever.

    • pat

      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.

      • Tom Zig

        But couldn’t they pick a better network than My9?

        • pat

          It’s either my9 or like the CW11, either way it’s gonna be a sheisty local broadcast.

    • Bryan

      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.
      http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com.....;topic_id=

      • pat

        Hahah that’s mad funny. Quite professional too, calling him A-Fraud.

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

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

          ok, lets just absorb the royals.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

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

    • Bryan

      dude i just posted that link haha

      • yankeefan91 Arod fan

        lol i didnt see that
